Timed levels (also known as Time levels or Time limited levels) is one of the six level types in Candy Crush Saga. This level type's icon was purple with an hourglass.

The object of this level type is to earn at least one star before the time ran out.

Timed levels had effectively been phased out of the game, though it might be that King is waiting for critical reception upon the removal of timed levels. In HTML5, they have been redesigned to other level types. They are still present, but can only be accessed by playing the Flash version.

During the first two months of 2018, moves levels replaced some timed levels, which signaled an early stage of being phased out. By the end of February, the affected levels were 1710, 1891, 1995 and more.

In early March 2018, many earlier timed levels were replaced with moves levels, which was another signal of the final days of this level type. In the first week of April 2018 alone, most remaining timed levels were converted into other level types. It was assumed that the next update or two would remove all remaining timed levels. This came true when the last remaining timed level, level 18, was removed in the first week of May. It's the symbol of the official removal of timed levels.*

However, timed levels still exist on Flash version which can be played on King.com browser. See here for the list of timed levels on Flash.

It was the only level type which was not restricted by moves.

To pass a timed level, a certain score has to be achieved within the time allocated, such that you would earn at least one star. When a match subsequently resulted in three cascades, a +5 candy would come down. If the cascades were still in progress, a +5 candy would come down after every four cascades. When time ran out, all special candies would be activated, then +5 candies would turn into wrapped candies and would activate.

When an Extra Time Candy was matched, it would only grant 5 seconds or refill the timer, whichever was less.

Web description

You have a restricted amount of time in which to finish the level. If the time runs out before you’ve earned at least one star, you will fail the level.

Difficulty

  • Timed levels are considered harder than moves levels, since your goal was to earn one star. There are only a few hard timed levels to earn one star. Some are also very boring to play.
    • They are hard because you had to earn one star with some being very high, and you are not pressured due to number of moves, but there are a time limit.
    • Also, many later timed levels are hard to earn three stars. 1237 on Facebook is an example.

Trivia

Timed icon
  • This level type is officially called Time levels.
  • This is the level type in the original Candy Crush and Action Mode of Bejeweled.
  • This is one of the two 'primitive' level types, as their sole objective was the score. The other 'primitive' level type is moves, and it is used for tutorial levels.
  • There has never been two consecutive timed levels.
  • There has never been an episode with three or more timed levels.
  • In early days, there was never a timed level that was extremely hard to earn even one star. But many later timed levels are extremely hard to earn three stars.
    • This trend was broken with level 1068, the first timed level rated extremely hard.
    • Level 297 on Facebook is an extremely hard level to earn three stars, yet it was almost impossible to fail to reach the target score.
  • Before they were redesigned, there were only 23 episodes after the first 25 to have timed levels.
  • The music of this level type for the HTML5 version was the music for Candy Order levels on Flash version, while the music for this level type on Flash version was the music for Ingredients levels on HTML5 version.
  • Timed levels did not give any sugar drops on mobile.
  • This was the only level type not to appear in the final episode on Flash version.
  • After Sugary Stage, the phasing out of timed levels began. Following said episode, there had only been a handful of timed levels and after the end of Flash version, many of the earlier timed levels were being changed into other level types (mostly moves levels). Also, jelly-timed mixed levels used to exist but they were all converted into regular jelly levels as a part of this process. Finally, on 2 May 2018, the last remaining timed level, namely level 18, was reverted into a jelly level, after existing for 19 days as the last level of its type.
  • After having been removed on HTML5, timed levels still exist on Flash.
Timed levels are being phased out of the game, such that most Timed levels have been replaced with Moves levels. King might be just testing with the game without Timed levels. Do you support or oppose these redesigns?
