Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Originally, this was the last level of Candy Crush Saga. Originally, it was an excruciatingly difficult and the known bad-boy level. This level, at one time, was probably more notorious than level 147 ever was. Many people truly deemed the level impossible and gave up here. When people spoke of hard levels, they only spoke of this level. However, this level has gone through several nerfs, and although it has retained some of its former difficulty in removing some of the corner or top jellies, it is no harder than a slightly-on-the-hard-side level, and no longer stands out like it used to. This level, however, may still take a few tries, but it has been diluted to a fraction of its original difficulty.
  • This was the third level which the level number is referenced within the level itself, as there are 65 spaces and jellies. The previous two are Level 20 and Level 50.
  • This level was considered as one of the hardest levels in the game until a nerf in late 2012 / early 2013.
  • This level is showcased in slot 12 of GameSpot's list of "The 12 Most Frustrating Video Game Challenges Ever" due to the pre-nerf. The site's consensus reads, "Candy is supposed to be fun. Candy is supposed to be a treat. But Level 65 of Candy Crush Saga is routinely described by players as quite the opposite to that".
  • A limited-edition T-shirt was sold acknowledging the major nerf of Level 65, on November 23. This is the only nerf that has garnered such attention that merchandise has been created that is based on this nerf.
  • This old design re-appears in level 165 and level 270 of Candy Crush Soda, and on levels 320, 430, and 3533 in this game. Level 430 of Dreamworld and level 3533 are as difficult as the pre-nerf 65 and have the same shape as this level.
  • "54 million of you beat the beast that is level 65" - this information is showed in an announced video on Facebook on Sunday, March 22, 2020.
