Candy Crush Level 173 Tips

While you’re making Striped candies focus on clearing the Icing highlighted in red (image below). By clearing the highlighted Icing not only will you be able to defuse the two Candy Bombs, but you will also create an open space in which you can make special candies. You can clear the remaining Icing afterwards and the quicker you do this the easier it will become to make special candies.

The objective is to collect 30 Striped candies and you only have 40 moves to do this. If you try to collect the Striped candies one by one it will be impossible to complete the level. The only way to complete the level is to combine a Color Bomb candy with a Striped candy at least once.

Match candies near the bottom of the playing field as often as you can. Doing this will shift the largest amount of candies, hopefully start a chain reaction and create new opportunities to make special candies.

With a 20-move timer only the two Candy Bombs you start the level with can cause a problem. New Candy Bombs can be defused easily within 20 moves.
