I must say that Candy Crush Level 86 has been the hardest level to beat so far in the candy crush series. Even once you break the licorice cages, destroying all the licorice swirls and double layered jelly within 35 moves is nearly impossible. The good news is that it can be beaten, but with a very specific strategy, so follow these basic tips and guidelines and you will be on level 87 before you know it!
On Candy Crush Level 86 you have 35 moves to break all the jelly and reach a minimum score of 40,000 points. Reaching the score is a joke compared to how difficult it is to destroy all the jelly, so focus mainly on getting inside the pyramid, then the points will follow.
If your playing the mobile version of this game, you can reset your board before making any moves by exiting out of the app then re-opening the level. But honestly, its not going to make a huge difference because this map seems to put candies in the most inconvenient places, so no matter how your board looks from the start, its only going to get worse anyways.
With this said, I recommend setting up boosters on this level. They can help you get into the pyramid without wasting to many moves and can help you break up some of the jelly. Any booster will work, so try out a few different ones. Sweet tooth teeth can work great, but the others work nearly just as well.
After selecting boosters, if you choose to do so, then start making basic combos. Take every opportunity to make special candies because you won’t get many chances on candy crush level 86 and try to save them. Your going to need special candies once you break up most of the licorice swirls. Striped candies are worthless against licorice swirls but wrapped candies can work miracles, so if you get the chance to whip up one of these wrapped bad boys… Go for it!
Most of the time on level 86 you will be making basic combos because of the limited space and the unlikelihood that you have special candies sitting around. So work at the bottom of the board and plan out your moves. In order to be successful on this level you must think 1 or 2 steps ahead each turn. Visually see how the candies will fall before you make the combo. This is hard to do, but if you’ve made it to level 86, you should be pretty good at this by now.
