Points are at a premium here and you have 8 move bombs to deal with as well. The majority of your moves need to be 4 match or color bomb moves. Try to get the striped candies set in the middle so they maximize the amount of points scored. Integrating the bombs into the matches is integral to scoring enough points in so few moves.
Another tough level! If you want to beat Candy Crush Level 97 you should watch our walkthrough video and follow our tips:

Candy Crush Level 97 Strategy
Like in many other levels this is much easier if played on the PC rather than on iOS devices. Be careful, you need to connect your FB account with your iOS device before playing Candy Crush on your PC in order for your progress to be tracked down! Level 97 is easier on the PC while there i no yellow on the board!
Combine striped candies with speckled special ball or wrapped & striped candies (another classic tip).
Patricia Frederick’s Tips for Candy Crush Level 97
Keep clearing the board! The toughest part of the level is racking up the points you need. Try a variety of things for that: a color bomb matched with a move bomb or a even a wrapped candy, striped/wrapped combos, 2 color bombs…whatever you do, you need to constantly keep new candies (and yes new bombs) dropping into the playing field to get those points). Try to leave specials on the board when the moves end to raise your score even more.
Before you start making moves, look into the very upper right—that’s where the bombs can get stuck. You need to make striped/wrapped combos here to keep clearing the board and removing the bombs to attain the points to pass the level.
