First of all, welcome to another new episode in the Candy Crush saga! Level 171 is the first level of the Cupcake Circus, and sure enough, the cupcake blocker is introduced here. Basically, cupcakes are just 5-layer meringues. Now, aren’t you relieved that level 171 doesn’t actually require you to clear all these cupcakes? Well, the goal is just to get 10 striped candies, so even if you don’t need to clear each and very cupcake, you have to at least clear majority of them so that you have enough space to work with for your goal. This is generally an easy level that you can finish on one sitting if you take note of the following tips and strategies:
1. Get rid of the isolated cupcake blocker on the middle of the board:
This one disrupts the flow of your candies, so just get rid of it at once. After you do this, you’ll have an easier time dealing with your special candy orders.
2. Do your goal, but take down some cupcakes with you:
Try to widen the board a little bit more by clearing some of them while you make your first striped candies:
3. Get a color bomb:
Remember that a color bomb could turn one striped candy to multiple striped candies, so if you do get a color bomb and pair it with a striped candy, I’m sure you’ll be hearing Sugar Crush in no time.
4. Welcome to Cupcake Circus! Now go get yourself a free treat from the spinning wheel, okay?
