Candy Crush Saga level 880

Tips for level 880 Candy Crush Saga
Level 880 is a timed level needing 8000,000 points to pass in 45 seconds!
This sounds worse than it actually is because there are lots of special candies on the board and coconut wheels too.
Try to unlock as many specials as you can at the beginning and use them to build up the points and unlock more.
Also collect the +5 candies to keep the timer up.
Try our page for help with timed levels if you find them difficult, as I do!
If you can manage to switch two coconut wheels they will give you loads of points, or a coconut wheel and colour bomb or wrap.

This level was a pressure cooker but if you keep your cool, you will beat this level... have fun

I passed the 1,000,000 mark and had over 30 seconds left, but there was a bomb that exploded and they did not let me move on. What's up with that?

about 200 tries in, I have never gotten more than about 700K. Help.

If a bomb explodes, even if you've made your numbers, you are finished. If you see one ready to blow, and you've made your numbers or very close to it, just stop playing and let the time run out so the bomb won't go off. You'll pass. I thought I'd never get it done but got through this morning, after never getting closer than 10,000 out prior to this.

Should've known.. even though this level can be 'fun'.. it's horrible to play because of the stress of having to reach that 800,000. I should've let it just run out, as I did get up over 880,000 and thought I'd just keep playing until it was 'done'. But of course, a bomb exploded and I was out of luck. I haven't been close since so I'm sorry I didn't get it the first time. Next time.. I'll just let it run out. I don't need a heart attack over this!

I keep getting boards with no moves, very frustrating as the clock ticks while it reshuffles

Anonymous said...

Like some of the others said....there seems to be a glitch.... I also had well over a million points....but was then kicked out due to a bomb.

Van5 said...

Luckily I got this on about the 6th try. Got knocked out by bombs on 2 tries. Managed to get the wheel with stripes and that knocked out bombs and gave me some much needed points. Tried to hit as many of the 5+ candies as I could. Didn't pay attention to the time...just kept going. Only one star, but I'm just fine with that!

Anonymous said...

I too once got over 800000 and thought yay I did it and then a bomb blew up. Grrr!!! I got in the 700000s a few times but just now got a great board. Lots of specials and +5s and also a few colour bombs which I combined with candy bombs which seems to give you lots of points. Before I knew it I was at 780000 with no bombs about to blow so I kept playing and ended up with 3 stars and over 1200000 points.

JanC here. Thought I'd get a comment in before my troll for a change. Just blew through four lives for my first try -- nothing close yet, but it is easy to see this level is 95% luck and 5% calm so I will take a deep breath and try to have fun with it. Very lucky to be playing on a tablet so I can change the clock to get more lives. All kudos to those of you who reached this level playing on a desktop: I could never have managed that accomplishment.

Jocelyn said...

1st try, no boosters, 2 stars. Take your time and focus on the bombs. Matching 2 coconut wheels definitely helped!

Cat said...

The last level was very tricky, but at least strategy and planning could enter the picture along with luck.

This level took many tries, and deep breaths and staying calm had nothing to do with my eventually passing. Unfortunately, neither did any kind of skill or strategy, which is why I hated this level. A final lucky board did the trick.

Just started level 880. Goal says 800,008? Anyone else?

Anonymous said...

I wish there was a bit of leeway for those of us with sight or dexterity problems. My 71 year old brain just can't cope. I fear I am going to be stuck here forever. I shall keep trying though. I've made it this far.

Cat said...

To the 71 year old above, whose brain, despite what was written, has been coping fabulously or he or she wouldn't have gotten this far...

I think this is a stupidly unfair and arbitrary level, so anything you can do to escape it is fair game.

I don't know if this will work, as I don't do any of the clock resetting which can apparenly get you more lives because I hate messing with my Ipad, but I've read that if you reset your mobile device by a week, the tooth fairy will advance you past that level. Then you play and set the time back after. Good luck.

I had to win this one twice. I play on both my iPad and laptop, but for some reason, iPad wouldn't sync after I won level on laptop. Grrr, because I hate timed levels.

Thanks Cat. I got the lucky board & I succumbed to buying extra seconds to finish it off. I couldn' stand the thought of doing it again & sending my blood pressure into orbit. Waiting for the next episode now..

Norah said...

I am also 71 years old and I am getting fed up with this. I got all the extra five second candies, matched two speckled candies, then matched two coconut wheels and only ended up with 498,000 points. What the h___? I got 760,000 and 700,000 twice without having those good matches!

Anonymous said...

Thanks Cat..eventually I got close & bought extra seconds to get through before my blood pressure went into orbit.sometimes you have to get though any way you can. Now I've finished the episode I went back & sailed through without boosters because I didn't panic.easier said than done.

Jane said...

Time levels really make me nervous. Got to 770,00 and bought extra moves. Finished with 2 stars. Worth the 99 cents! Took many tries and lives to get to that point

Barb Whitlock said...

I've been at it for days...how anyone is getting beyond 2 or 3 thousand is beyond me. I've had all kinds of matches, I've unlocked all the +5's, this is a matter of getting one of those lucky boards - again!

Anonymous said...

A timed level with bombs! They have to be kidding. There is no way I can react as quickly as the demo video! This must be the end for slow people like me.

Anonymous said...

JanC here. Finally! Took two lucky boards in a row because on the first one I blew it and once I'd got the points and knew it, I still let my nerves get to me and -- instead of letting the last seconds go without making a move, as commenters rightly recommend with a bomb about to explode -- I lost my head and made moves to clear it even though I could see it wasn't possible. Nuts! So I figured I'd have to wait days longer for another board that lucky, but no! Got it the very next board, kept my head this time, and squeaked by with another single star. Yay.

Norah said...

I finally made it through this morning. I had got 760,000 points a few days ago and should have bought extra moves. I used quite a few speckled candies that I won on the booster wheel but nothing helped. Finally, I just got the points with no boosters. I had made lots of great matches in the past that didn't help.But today I just got two speckled candies during the game. Nothing special. I really do question how the points are added up sometimes. Anyways, once it showed that I had 830,000 points I quit playing just in case there was a bomb somewheres. Only got one star but who cares. At 71 years old my reactions aren't what they once were. Good Luck everyone. If I can do it so can you☺

Anonymous said...

Took about ten attempts with one close call at attempt 2. I found you have to free up a wheel and use them to get rid of bombs, just take some time as colour bombs are the ones you want, I stopped at 750k as I had a bomb that was about to go off, I had a bunch of specials on the board and had to wait to see if the cascades would bring me to 800k, I got there with 803k, regards AJ

Anonymous said...

Hi it's Kath... About 10 attempts... Got lots of good combos.. 880000 something with 30 seconds to do, bombs to go off in two moves, so let the clock keep ticking without making a move.. DONE !!!!

Anonymous said...

After saying it was the end for slow people I actually passed this morning just short of three stars! Had two bombs with two moves left but was not about to risk anything! Don't need 3 stars, just wanted out! Persevere, the next level is a pussycat.

Maria Fernanda said...

My goal is 800008 too

Barb Whitlock said...

Seriously, this is beyond ridiculous. I've been at it for almost 2 weeks and I can't even come close - this one might truly do me in for good.

Mandy Alcazar said...

I have been playing this level for about a week and a lot of times have not even came close but when the game ended I would get an error message, this happened a couple of times and I would have to restart. Well sure enough I finally managed to pass it and of course at the end I get the same error message and had to restart again. Ugh how am I ever supposed to pass this level if I keep getting error message??!!

Mandy Alcazar said...

Go figure as soon as I posted my last post, I played one more time, and past level 880 with no error message!! Some times I just think you need to vent and the Candy Crush gods feel see it :) Good luck with this level.

Charlotte said...

Mixing a stripe with a wheel seemed to help a lot, it made the board blow up. Just be careful to check that the bombs aren't going to explode even when you have the points.

Anonymous said...

I hate to say this, but I got it after three tries....just pure luck...and I'm 63, not a young one with good eyes and rapid reflexes..... Go figure....?

Five attempts need to concentrate on the bombs and extra time candies. Explode chocolate bombs soon as they form.

c/candycrush here.

I hate these timed levels and this one is a bit tricky, the bombs usually got me.

My take on it. Don't worry too much about releasing wheels or anything else, just concentrate on killing bombs before they reach zero AND looking for the +5 candy to match.
The key to this level is to get enough time extensions to allow you to get the score you need, but doing that without a bomb exploding is hard yakka.

WARNING: If (like me) you get well past the 800,008. STOP and TAKE YOUR TIME. One game I had close to 900,000 but because a bomb exploded on me before my time ran out, I did not 'pass' the level. I'm guessing the game only passes you if you time out, not if you are bombed out.

So as soon as it goes over that magic score, your ONLY aim is to avoid a bomb exploding. If a bomb is close to exploding, just let the game time out.

Anonymous said...

So tired of this one. I played the AlphaBetty word game and got 5 lives and 5 hammers. That might be my new game and be done with this nonsense. I was close once and should have bought extra time, but wasn't going to pay King. I was caught up with the real Jan C before this level. Friends have given me extra moves but can't use them til I pass this mess.

Anonymous said...

Dang it! I had well over a million points and I forgot not to keep playing and let a bomb explode. SHOOT!!!! Can't blame anyone but myself. I knew better.

JanC here! Hate to say "I told ya so", but if you just asked for the crushing experts advice, you woulda finished, Eh?

Finally got this level with 3 stars and then error message and the game didn't move on to next level. So now stuck with having to do it again grrr.

kfmconsulting said...

Timed levels are my least favorite but finally got it this morning with a lucky board. I tried to work on just one side to deal with the dropping bombs which keep on coming. I lucked out and was able to combine two wheels which did a lot of damage and more combos formed. 1 star no boosters in iPad.

Anonymous said...

Thank god its done...I hate time levels period let alone needing 800,000 pts with constant 15 move bombs..its insane & I honestly felt which at this level I should no better that I was done & had no shot...Failed miserably for 10 tries & woke up this morning & that miracle board showed up..I decided also to just keep matching +5 moves & low count bombs until something big happened & when candy bomb finally showed matched with same color move bomb for large points..cascades now started & working at bottom helped set up another candy bomb & remembered tip & saw several same color move bombs on the board & matched one scoring massive points & again another candy bomb I just immediately used to wipe out 2 low count bombs & creating one last candy bomb that I matched with color bomb & saw I went over 800K & did not want to keep going even though had no low count bombs & could score tons.I was afraid with so much cascading that system way freeze & screw my game & I would never get back...I prayed the clock would end & my points would be accepted & when it showed level completed I thanked the stars above...1 star 926,000..Who cares I am done...Hate these timed levels..Good Luck

Anonymous said...

I truly hate this level! So many times the board opens with no matches or very few. The WORST IS THE COCONUT WHEEL SPINS FOR 20 SECONDS AND THE TIMER RUNS OUT!The bombs are a pain in the @ss, but the coconut wheels ARE NOT HELPFUL!

Anonymous said...

Hi all,
I am only at level 815 but there are no more levels on my phone. Does anyone know how I can install the next levels on my Samsung phone. Please help, I am missing not playing CC

Anon lafy said...

My heart sinks when I see a timed level! It has taken many many lives , but I had a break and amazingly I cracked it with my first try after that. Thank goodness. Only one star, but who cares?

Crap!!! Just can't seem to conquer this one!

Ultramum said...

Another 'lucky' level ... Get so fed up of waiting for the board that will win ... I much prefer levels that use skill (as do most of us I suspect)

Ultramum said...

I'm amazed how often I pass a level the very next turn after commenting on here! Cascade after cascade and a wrapped candy next to a coconut wheel put paid to most of the points ... Just waited for the timer to run out after reaching 800000

Deborah said...

Read the comments and thought I would be on this level a long, long time. I remained calm, went after the +5 candies, kept the bombs in check and a lot of special candies were made. Of course, this was mostly luck. Past after 3 tries with 3 stars.

Crushed said...

I normally blow right thru timed boards but this one is something else.
I've had 2 pairs of cookies swap in same game and still didn't come close to reaching required points. It seems like most of the time is lost during the cascading or waiting for the coconut wheel to decide which way it is going. I watch valuable time tick away without being able to make a move.

Crushed said...

I have noticed that also. But not on this board.

katrina arndt said...

level 880. Goal says 800,008 impossible without a lucky board need help please driving me crazy cheers katrina

Anonymous said...

New poster here. Thanks everyone for you tips over the last 200ish levels. Wouldn't have got this far without you. Finally passed this level after 5 day. My tips are: avoid the coconut wheels they kill to much time. Clock maxes out at 45 seconds so don't try get all the +5 all at once. Once time runs out you get 100+ points depending on how many specials and wheels are on the board. So if close and bombs are about to go stop and let the time run out. Passed with 2 stars. Good luck to all

Anonymous said...

Ridiculous Level all around. Not everyone has the same high speed on the internet thanks to locations. Boring and very unfair. At this level pls do not insult our intelligence with 'wait till u get a lucky board'. Hate this level and boo to the programmer who thought timed levels were fun. BORING.

Anonymous said...

Absolutely hate this level! I have tried so many different attempts, and just can't get the points. Bombs and a timed level -- my two least favorite games. Will this ever end?!?!?!

Jane Keefe said...

I'm agreeing with most of the comments here, good OR bad!!!! I guess what annoys me the very most about timed levels is having to wait for cascades to finish cascading before you can make another match. Sooooo frustrating having to wait while watching the seconds tick down! I just got a board where I had tons of specials, was able to match two coconut wheels as well as two sprinkle ball+striped, two wrapped+striped, many many +5 second candies and when time finally ran out, I only had 398,000 points. HUH???? What do you have to do to reach 800,008? _janeK

Anonymous said...

This board is not fun. For me, it's not fair. I am 79, my hands move more slowly than they used to, plus I have tremors in my hands. These factors make this level impossible for me. I have done well, I think, to reach level 880, but it seems that I will not be able to go beyond. I am not a quitter, so I'll keep trying anyway.

Anonymous said...

This one is just horrible - if you don't get hit by a bomb you run out of time!!! Total torture. And indeed so stressful!

Anonymous said...

I'm having a hard time with this one! I'm just not quick enough. Tried last night while drinking wine. Trying this morning while drinking coffee. ;) Back at it....

How can you win if the +5 candies stop coming and the clock runs out?

Anonymous said...

Okay, it's official - I am stopping at this level. I have had too many times that the timed candies just stop coming and so there is no way of winning! I can control the bombs, and I can keep the points building but if the timed candies just stop appearing what can you do? I have not yet spent 1 cent on this game and I am not beginning now. Bye, bye from Grace from Down Under. It's over red rover.

Anonymous said...

Not only is this level unfair and frustrating, now my gold bars that I had earned with candy drops have disappeared. Like a previous poster, I have not spent money on this game, nor, do I intend to. I wonder if those who run this game ever check comments.

Anonymous said...

Grace from down Under: of course I did not quit and after about 5 days I beat this rotten level. Not only that I got almost 12.000 points. I stopped before I needed to as I was so afraid of overlooking a bomb and loosing it all again. :-) Btw, what can you do with gold bars - I have about 4 or 5 but have never found out how to use them.

Bobby Tall Horse said...

I have loved playing Candy Crush..but alas, I think it's over. I don't mind doing timed stuff..but I live in the boonies..my internet is slow. It takes my internet 2-3 seconds to make my move..there's no chance of proceeding..but I thank you Candy Crush..it's been a great ride!

Dirk said...

Yes mine says that too. I was wondering about that myself.

Anonymous said...

Nice to hear many elders are in crushing candies. King should think about them too. Holding breath to do timed levels. Here the points to get is more and so little problem. Don't loose heart and give up. It is doable. I passed it am nearing 70. Don't be in panic but crush it calmly without the score. Watch the video how they do without hurry. You will win. All the best.

Redwing said...

This has got to be the worst level for me.
I'm 82 years old and not spent a dime to get this far and I'm not giving up now.

Redwing said...

Finally got that lucky board, 1,025,000 points. I'm on my way.

😯80yrs here and ready to give up a few times but just when I think it's too hard or frustrating I pass. Think sometimes king knows when a player is ready to quit and gives that lucky board

I hate this one. Ready to quit! Not even fun. No longer care to play!

Anonymous said...

This level is just unpleasant. After playing way too much Candy Crush over the last year or so, I'm done. The timed levels are no fun, and this one is the worst yet, stressful and pointless. They'd have to pay me to continue this level. Bye.

Asw a general rule, timed boards play better on touch screen computers and touch screen phones. Faster than clicking them to pick up and then move them

Anonymous said...

See you I vowed no more timed levels, no fun just designed for you to spend money.

Marika said...

This is it. I hate this one. Goes with anxiety what is not good for me so it is time to stop. I got a few times almost 800.000 but never more an that or the bombs goes off or the timing expire . This si the hardest one so far. The way I feel I never will pass one so good by candy crush>

Anonymous said...

Impossible level!! cant get anywhere close highest is about 400,000 i just dont get enough extra seconds and i havent got the time to look for special candies while the bombs or secondss are ticking away.... i really fear this is going to be my last level bye bye CC

macyn said...

why did I start back playing this game should have known only a matter of time before I ran up with a level like 880 can't score but 400 thousand they want you to score over 800 thousand shit like this is just to fucked up time to delete this shitty game again will they ever learn to play fair doubtful all about the money

Anonymous said...

HATE, HATE, HATE THIS LEVEL. Read all the comments and I guess I have a lot of company. Sometimes we get such fun and easy to pass levels and then King spoils it all with a level like this. Totally unfair. THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE FUN, NOT TORTURE. So tempted to quit.

Michelle Schultz said...

Finally, color bomb plus wrapped set it all off. Went through 100 lives for that!!! 😊

RH said...

Read all the tips and have used up all my lives... last board looked good when i combined 2 coco wheels... but still only 550thou! Have noticed that when I play on facebook I have more goodies than if I play directly (eg. 10 colour bombs on direct but 59 on facebook version)... any idea how to transfer them? The facebook version plays so slowly that it is not use on timed board?

Anonymous said...

Is this level meant to be played on a PC? If I have a really good game, I'm lucky I get 400,000 pts. With a really bad game I manage to get 200,000 pts. Doesn't make sense!
