Candy Crush level 86 is located in the Bubblegum Bridge episode. To beat this level you must clear 25 jelly squares and score at least 40,000 points. When you start this level there is a pyramid of licorice swirls covering the 25 jelly squares. There is also a border of locked candies around the pyramid that add a little challenge to level 86.
To beat level 86, you are going to have to generate some special candies. There is too many licorice swirls to clear in only 35 moves to just do 3 candy combos. The other thing that is hard is that striped candies will not work well on this level until the licorice swirls are all clear. Instead, try and make wrapped candies as these are good at clearing licorice swirls. Really concentrate on clearing the licorice swirls and don’t play at the top of the board if you cant help it.
Once you have destroyed some of the pyramid, start playing as low as you can on the board. Work your way through the jelly squares and the licorice swirls and save your special candies for bigger candy combinations.
Now, don’t give up if you don’t beat this one on the first try. This is a more difficult level and it make take you a few times to beat it. For a video on how to beat level 86, check below.
