Candy Crush Saga Level 1039

Hints and tips for level 1039 Candy Crush Saga
You need to collect 80 each of red, green and blue candies in 30 moves.
Normally this wouldn't be too hard, but half the candies are locked in licorice strings and the two cyclones don't help!
You need to be looking for combos to get into the bottom half of the board from the start, and hit the cyclones too as soon as possible as they are a nuisance and spoil any moves you are setting up.
Once you're able to work in the bottom half of the board your job will get easier as there are only 5 colours on the board so cascades are common.
Watch your moves though as 30 isn't very many so you can't waste too many setting up combos.

This is hard -- making combos is difficult with so little room to work.

I totally agree. There are not enough moves to complete this level. The cyclones are very frustrating. Need a lucky board soon. Getting boring.

Sunnyday said...

Really boring level! Can't get near the bottom, let alone start making combos down there!

Just passed it using a sprinkle booster. If it gets too dull, just do that!

Stop whining. .yes its hard but I got it no boosters after 15 games or so. Created two choc sprinkles and used them to open green and red. 4 moves left and got another and took care of remaining red order and one blue. CONCENTRATE on breaking wall ..

I don't have the patience anymore to try multiple times on hard boards so use the boosters from the sugar drop challenge. I'll try a hard board twice without boosters. If I don't get it after that, the boosters come out. I used a chocolate sprinkle and a striped/wrap. The choco and striped were next to each other so it opened up the board pretty well. Then it was game on, 3 stars.

Jane said...

Took the advice from here. Threw in my boosters. It worked. Three stars!

Took about eight tries for this level. I got two stripe/wrap combos and two chocolate sprinkles that I used to clear two of the colors. I was unable to get rid of one of the cyclones. But on the last move I still needed one blue candy and the cyclone landed on one blue candy.

Got tired of the level, so used choc ball and stripe + wrap boosters, reset until choc ball was next to a stripe of a needed color, and that was that. Glad to be moving on.

How do you manage to reset the board without losing your boosters????? I have not got a re-set button and ending the game loses the boosters every time.

To anonymous above. You no longer lose your boosters when you reset IF you are playing on a mobile device. Just quit the game. Doesn't work on a PC. You will lose your boosters there. I've tried various boosters and still haven't passed. Boring board.

I tried to reset with a few moves left, ended game but lost boosters anyway.

You have to restart the game on mobile before you make any moves to keep the boosters

Completed this board on about the tenth try. I think you need a lucky board to get this one. Try to take out the tornados with a stripe or wrapper if possible. It helps to open up the board. It gave me 6 sprinkles, and I was able to cross two of them with a stripe. With all of this I still had to use a hand swap to set up a sprinkle with a stripe. Got it on the last move, 3 stars. Glad to move on from this one. Good luck!!

Had a chocolate bomb plus striped candy near the end which got all the remaining colours. Need to open up the bottom section asap but this is difficult.

If you have not updated the game in awhile ...you need too.
they cganged the prigramming si you do not lose boosters when you reset a game.

I passed this won once, and due to a software error, it did not record the victory. Grrrrr... Hurricanes give me a headache, like a timed level. So nine trys later I just focused on the Sprinkle Ball / Stripe Combo. Good Luck! Sugar Cat

After a few tries, I had 4 moves left and was lucky enough to get 2 Sprinkle Bombs next to each other...Wiped out all of the Candies and passed the Level with 3 stars No Boosters.....Thresa

Took 5 or so tries. Managed a colour bomb and stripe combo which cleared out a lot of licorice and freed the candies. Stripe/ wrap combos and stripes helped the total. Finished needing one red and one blue...lol so used 9 of my gold bars from my prizes to get the 5 extra moves. Done and done. Moving on.

I'm determined to do this one without boosters! back at it...

Gave up on doing it without boosters. Finally used a stripe/wrap booster and a chocolate speckle ball. Didn't finish until the very last move! Eek!

Cat said...

Hi all. Got thos tough one using one of my 67 checkmark bonuses off the wheel in order to attain the needed colors.

Good luck all

I've used all the boosters I am willing to spend on this level. It is AWFUL.

This is interesting on mobile device and tablet I have the cyclones but on laptop I don't have cyclones but a coconut wheel and what I call the spinning saucer. The board layout is the same.

Anonymous said...

I also had the coconut wheel and spaceship bomber on the laptop and not the mobile so did it on laptop easily. Followed advice above, used the free tick booster, got a chocolate bomb in the first move with a striped combo, hit the coconut wheel etc and all over with 10 moves to spare, joy

Guess I got lucky. First try, 3 stars. Got a chocolate sprinkle/stripe combo in the beginning which cleared the entire bottom half. Hang in there! I've had frustrating levels that others got through quick. You can do this!!

Stupid level. I have been trying this for a few days on my phone without any luck at all. Hardly and special candy to be made, so not a hope in hell.......boring boring boring. Will give it a shot on pc to see if it is any better. :(

Another horrid boring level that it appears you will simply not get unless you use boosters or get that magic lucky board. I have been trying this one on android phone for days with no luck at all. Very few special candy to be made, almost a total waste of time & energy. I will give it a shot on pc to see if it is any better. I am almost at the bored to death stage!!!

Anonymous said...

hmmmm, I have just watched the video for this & cannot believe you can get that many sprinkles in one game....a lot of luck involved definitely!!

They have changed to flying saucers. Still tuff, but at least it's a lot of fun

GC said...

On the first try I concentrated on the coconut section and didn't finish the game. On the second try, just now, I concentrated on the other side with the sherbet (flying saucer) lol, and it was plain sailing after that. I like the saucers, I think they're fun and who would complain knowing that the wrappers they make zaps quite a few blocked candies out of the way? It not only reduces the colour candies you need but saves you moves on doing it yourself, 😁

Good luck everyone
