These Candy Crush Level 490 cheats will help you beat level 490 on Candy Crush Saga easily. Candy Crush level 490 is the fifth level in Meringue Moor and the 208th jelly level. To beat this level, you must crush 16 double jelly squares in 45 moves or fewer. You have 5 candy colors and 72 available spaces. You can get a maximum of 250,000 points.
Strategy: Try to make a lot of vertically striped candies and their combinations instead of wrapped candies even if you can make them. Only make wrapped candies if the configuration does not allow you to make vertically striped candies, which then can be mixed with striped candies; or if you can have the wrapped candy dropped at the jelly area and activated, as it will remove a good number of jellies in a single stroke.
The jellies are hard to reach and are often engulfed by chocolate. The chocolate seem very daunting as well. The bomb candy cannons frequently produce bombs, but the chocolate will eat up the bombs. However, if there is not enough chocolate left, clearing the bombs will be difficult, and the player only has 10 moves to clear the barrage of bombs from the candy cannon(s). The presence of only five colors makes it easier to create special candies. The jellies are worth 32,000 points, which is more than the one star target score.

Level 490 Tips & Help
1The setup of this level makes it hard to get to the jellies that are under the chocolates. The chocolates can’t be matched directly out of the gate because there are candy bomb dispensers on top of them. You have to use vertical striped candies to break up the chocolate and let candies fall into the pyramid.
2Because the chocolates are being protected by the bomb dispensers, wrapped candies are virtually useless. Only make a wrapped candy if it’s in a configuration that makes it impossible to make a striped candy. Only activate wrapped candies if you combine them with striped candies.
3The bomb dispensers spew bombs below into the chocolate pyramid. This means that the 10-move bombs really can’t detonate because either you’ll clear them or they’ll be overtaken by chocolate.
