Candy Crush Saga level 990

Hints and tips for level 990 Candy Crush Saga
Fairly easy level if you can get to the bombs before they count down.
Use the fish as soon as possible as they will often take out a bomb for you as well as unlocking colour bombs etc.
Once the board is opened up look for colour bomb patterns and other special candies.. There are plenty of moves in level 990 so no need to worry about that, just getting to the bombs at the start can be tricky.

Not too bad once I got through the initial bombs. I used a hammer mid way through to kill a bomb I couldn't get to. Then lots of sprinkles appeared. Three stars!

Lucky board on first try. Gotta love those 1.2+ million points! :)

Cat said...

Second or third try, used the same single hammer as Jane to get the one scary bomb, although I had a few close calls later. So glad I had that hammer. Onward and upwards.

Third try, thought I would spend days on trying to get rid of an enormous amount of bombs then a stripe/wrap combo started a nice cascade which got rid of a lot of bombs. Tephe rest is history, the game played itself. Good luck, and don't forget....stripe-wrapm combo ;););)
And looooved the 1,740,000 points too ;);)

Finished this level on second try. First time a bomb got me.
No boosters, 17 moves left and three stars.

You really have to keep on the bombs on this one.

Flew through levels 984-989, then I hit this one. Burned through 15 lives and haven't made it past 15 moves. Always have more bombs at 14th move than hammers to clear them. Tried various methods on this board. Wanted to stay on one side to create more strips but always forced back to top and having to waste moves. This is one of those boards I'd like to have a shuffle option.
So now I sit waiting for friends to send me lives and hoping lucky board shows up soon.

Same situation as Crushed. Can't get past move 15. Been close several times with one bomb left on one-move countdown but couldn't deal with it, no hammers left. Waiting for a lucky board I suppose, doesn't seem to be any particular strategy available.

Same feelings as above, played many times and never managed to destroy the bombs :-(.

Very hard level and not fun like the previous ones. Waiting for lucky board.

Have never posted, come for useful tips. Just had to say this was the funniest level ever. Hadn't read tips...first try, it looked daunting...finished with 32 moves left, after specials and cascades, 3,124,200 pts....hilarious.

I found this level is much easier on the PC version on Facebook. It has more effective cascades and the fish hit better targets. Passed first try after using many lives playing on the App.

first try 3 stars, was indundated with bombs

Need a good start plenty of chocolate bombs formed. Took four attempts. Blow up the chocolate bombs as soon as they form.

I have now completed this level three times and STILL have not been moved forward to the next level. I even went to King's website, clicked "contact us", but that link does not work. What can I do to move on, so I can keep playing??

You can always email King @ccsplaycontrol@support.king.com
I always get an answer from them in one or two days.

Thanks for the tip that this level is much easier on the computer. I never got close on the ipad and passed first time on the pc.

The fish will often go for the bombs? Not really! Hard to get those color bombs to be useful.

Omg! This is frustrating the he'll out of me!

Wow! I finished with more than 15000000 points!

The bombs are killin' me! Finding this level very difficult.

Hey Crushed, you don't have to wait for lives, if you are on a phone or iPad go to settings and set your clock forward 3 hours, after you put clock in manual mode, you will get 5 more lives. When you are finished moving the clock forward, be sure you have 5 lives total, press to play, on the game board, not the actual start of the game, go back and set your clock back to automatic. Learned that trick back in the first 100 levels 😀

I read this blog for tips on how others have passed difficult levels, I have no idea why any idiot would post here "showing off" about how they have passed using a booster. We can all pass using a booster!!! WELL DONE, YOU USED A BOOSTER. Try advising readers on how to pass without cheating. That's the fxckin point

Cindy. Buckels said...

Played for two days without getting past the bombs until I played on my Mac. Passed the first try.

Super fun level if you get a lucky board. Passed on first try with 1,170,000 and 35 moves left. Wishing you all the lucky board!

What worked for me was a chance candy ball-striped candy combination. This got rid of all of the remaining bombs two moves before they were set to explode.

Using boosters is often the only advice one can give for some of these levels, and is a legitimate strategy unless you want to spend weeks or months on some of these levels. I only use the boosters I get from the daily spins and the sugar drops (my goal being not to pay) but if players want to buy boosters, that's their choice. On the other hand, except for the lollypop hammers and the red hands, the boosters don't usually help enough, which is why I currently have more than 100 of them.

And finally, anyone having come this far in the game has seen everything King has to offer and is quickly able to figure out what needs to be done. Doing it is the hard part. So there's not a lot of advice that we can give that you probably haven't figured out yourself. And with nothing else to do, we brag a little about our successes and moan a little about our struggles. Bottom line: the game is supposed to be fun. ;-)

Enjoyable, fun level

Bobbir said...

Well said anonymous from Sept 8th. I don't get why people think it's cheating to use boosters. They're there to be used

Susie Pavey said...

Brilliant advice, used two hammers and it worked a treat. Thank you everyone

When King does a major update you lose all your boosters any way so might as well use them. King's "helpful" advise to avoid losing the boosters is to not save them.

I was lucky enough to get a color bomb with a green wrap and many of the bombs were green so the whole board blew up and it was fun, finished with 1.7 million. I hate the bombs but I have noticed that if you can switch out a bomb that is right under the bomb dispenser with a regular candy then no more bombs can drop... love that!!
