Candy Crush Saga Level 1179

Hints and tips for level 1179 Candy Crush Saga
The best way to clear level 1179 and get the ingredients down is by switching two colour bombs together. This will clear the board and unlock the ingredients all in one move.
I never managed to get that combo so had to do it the hard way by making stripes.
If you fire a stripe through another stripe, not switch them together, this will be like two hits and it will clear the licorice and unlock the fruit in one go.
I played this mind numbingly boring level so many times that I gave in and used a hammer to get the last fruit.
Another option if you have plenty of boosters, you can just use 4 lollipop hammers on the ingredients, game over, no moves, 3 stars.

I "Did" get 2 Sprinkle Bombs to smash together 1st try at completing the Level. Thanks for the suggestion. Passed 1st try ~ no Boosters used. I could tell it was going to be really boring otherwise. Thresa

2 Sprinkle bombs together worked for me too after 10 tries. Good luck

This episode is a mind blower. Level 1179 was a toughie but easy compared to level 1180. It's a night mare! Waiting for someone's solution...

Many thanks for the 2 sprinkles together hint. Managed to get two together (probably more by luck than judgement!) and hey presto, game over! Now to tackle 1180! Good luck everyone

Tintin here. Well this is not easy, and after looking at many videos on youtube along with comments from this site, it seemed the only thing was two choc balls together. I got close a few times, the choc balls do come down, but its hard to get them side by side. So I ignored all moves on the board, going only for choc balls. Finally, with two choc balls almost side by side I bought five extra moves and was able to blitz it with the two choc balls. I must say, it is wonderful to see the all help person, whoever it may be, finally using a booster to finish a level.

I got it with two stripe/bomb combos, The licorice doesn't come straight back which gives you time to clear with vertical stripes, I got it second go.

If you're stuck on 1179 then give up now because 1180 is impossible!!!

I got through this level using a Coconut Wheel booster.

Thanks to the tip of combining two chocolate balls, I got this one. A chocolate ball dropped down early and after that I just kept matching candies ion the same side hoping another would fall. When one did just above it and next column over, I kept on matching candies nearby until the one dropped down next to the first one. Yay! Couldn't believe I'd done it. JS

Mind numbingly dull. Would love to get two chocolate sprinkles together! Lucky if I can make one and then the board forces me to waste it as there are no other moves. YAWN!

The coconut wheel worked wonders for me initially on two ingredients. Then had two opportunities to switch a sprinkle with a stripe. The first time nothing, but the second time the remaining two ingredients fell.

Lisa said...

I went for two chocolate balls together. 6th game I just played to make chocolate balls. I had one, made other moves, down to 6 moved and another chocolate ball landed on top of my original. Yay! Onto the next one!

Great tip offered here. When playing, ignored everything else but trying to get two colour bombs together, and on the second try, got just that and cleared the board and dropped the cherries with thirty-one moves to go. This definitely is the way to go. No boosters used.

Cat said...

Dull dull dull. No luck with donut boosters or trying to get adjacent choc balls, so...

Used choc ball booster and reset until it was where an adjacent choc ball could be easily created (via one move and two hand switches). Two moves total, and joy.

Good luck to all.

Got it first try. Vertical stripe made a gap in the licorice, then (luckily) more verticals through the gap to get 3 of the cherries. Used a lollipop to free the final cherry because I didn't want to be stuck on this boring level.

Van5 said...

Two wraps together on the bottom clear a lot of the licorice. Did that once just to see what would happen, but on my fifth try I got the 2 colour bombs together and it was game over. If I didn't get this in another 10 goes, I was going to use the lollipop hammers on the cherries! Good luck everyone!

Great tip re chocolate sprinkles. Got two almost next to each other so used a red hand switch. Bingo! Now for the dreaded 1180!

Great tips here! Thanks all. I used coconut wheel- second try and done

I've been visiting this wonderful site since about level 67. Never commented till now, but have been frequently so grateful for the tips, I'd have given up long ago without them.
The 2 Sprinkle tip did the trick here, used a booster, ignored all other possibilities and got another. Job done.

jaf said...

And what I also meant to say, was that this is the first time I've noticed MsCookieKirby complaining about a board. Please don't get discouraged, we need you!

Mar Mak said...

Thanks for the 2 sprinkle tip. After trying for days used the tip and completed after 2 games. Thanks!

Anonymous said...

Great advice, thanks! Used a sprinkle to start with, managed to make another two away from first, used two hand switches and voila! End of this horrible boring level!

I had a hard time with 1179 and came here looking for ideas. i was able to get the two chocolates after maybe 15 tries. I was dreading level 1180 in reading these reviews & just passed it in one try! Lucky maybe - but I didn't find it hard at all.

the laughologist said...

After several failed attempts... A coconut wheel/stripe combo worked for me :)

Anonymous said...

Yup, side by side color bombs is the way to go. Reset the game till you get one then try to make another side by side. Don't waste moves to do anything else but that. Be patient, it will happen than bingo, they get rid of the four fruit in a jiffy ;)

I had the treasure chest to unlock. Did so with 30 hours left. I was unable to collect the gifts. With 11 hours to go the check marks for completion were gone. Did anyone else have this glitch?

michelle mcbride said...

I was going to try the coconut wheel but took a chocolate ball in with me instead..
There was another set fot yet another ball which created one candy away.
Switched them.to side by side then let switch together.
Beautiful!!
Level done....thank god...that just sucked amy other way.

michelle mcbride said...

Yes..
I had 22 hrs left. ...then it was gone.

uclapt said...

Weirdly, it took me a couple of lollipops to get the two chocolate bombs, but then, I cleared out 1180 in one try...

Anonymous said...

I had gotten so accustomed to being so far in front of the latest updates that I did not realize that I could actually play this on my iPad, with unlimited "start overs". I kept restarting until I got an easily formed disco ball (my term) the first five moves, then just kept after making another. That happened fairly quickly and I was done and gone with 32 moves left! Thanks for the tip. Ed B.

I agree with all the posters commenting about using 2 color bombs together. It's really the only way to do this one, way too frustrating and difficult trying to break thru licorice. I especially appreciate the post above by anonymous on 9/9/15 at 9:23... I wasted a couple color bombs but resetting the game did the trick to get 2 bombs adjacent. Thanks to everyone for comments.

Correction to my post just above at 8:42... The date of posting that helped should be 9/19/15 not 9/9/15. Can't type on iPhone!

Jennifer said...

Hated this level, but after coming here, I got two chocolate balls together (pure luck) and cleared the stupid board.

LynnR said...

A wheel booster helped me to finally get past this difficult level. Moving on.

Anonymous said...

How are you guys getting 2 chocolate sprinkles?? I might have one drop, but that makes it hard to try to make another one. Hmmmm.... BTW, I don't have the option to reset either. Looks like I might be here for awhile!

Anonymous said...

Absolutely ridiculous. I'm done.

Anonymous said...

What the hell?? All the licorice just gets replaced as soon as its cleared. Watched the video posted here and its not the same now. No matter how many boosters i use i cant clear any licorice to get near the stupid fruits!! Idiotic level.

Unknown said...

Same thing is happening to me...it doesnt stay open long enough for a second stripe to be used...tried everything! Mine definitely doesnt look the same as what i see on posted videos...

Edenia Wisdom said...

I've tried to get 2 sprinkles together and can't. I've used all the other combos and coconut wheel and I'm still stuck on 1179! I cannot do this one for the darn licorice. It won't stop coming back every move. Grr! Help. Please and thanks.

Anon lafy said...

Everyone was spot on posting that this level was boring, boring, boring. So when I got two sprinkles on the board I used switch hands to move them along and together. Bingo - down went the fruit. Thank goodness for sugar drops!

By the way, King has done me out of two lots of boosters yesterday and today when the 'gift box' didn't open. GRRRR!!!! Anyone else had this happen?

Bill. said...

Agree very tedious two chocolate bombs together only way to clear the fruit.

Anonymous said...

Thank u for tips guys. I don't believe this but I got next level first time, I used 3hammers .... Two to knock out two bombs n 3rd to pass

Anonymous said...

This is indeed such a dumb level that I am going to take a long break. Can't stand to put my brain out of action yet again. As soon as you clear a liquorice it comes back so there is not much chance of actually hitting a fruit. Nah, I'm going in the garden and the sun! Grace from DU

Anonymous said...

Yea coconut wheel combined with also one colour bomb did it for me. Was not as bad as I thought. Grace DU

Anonymous said...

combined two color bombs and that was that. four candy hammers would have worked too.

Anonymous said...

c/candycrush here

If you get 2 colour balls together, it clears it all in one go. In dark moments I did wonder if using just using 4 hammers would do the trick and it seems it does.

Don't bother choosing any other boosters pre-game, they're not much help.
Boring level.

Anonymous said...

I visit this site for tips a lot as I try to pass levels without using boosters as much as I can, including the hard levels. This was indeed a mind numbing level and I couldn't get lucky. I had 23 Lollipop Hammers in inventory and didn't think twice about taking the easy way out on this one. Thank you so much for sharing that tip!

Mike V said...

Used a free speckled ball and got a board that allowed me to make another next to it. Swapped together done three stars. Thanks Cookie for the tip.

Noella said...

Love the tips everyone gives. Unfortunately, even after over 20 games, I only got a sprinkle twice and not in same game. The licorice keeps spawning, so I rarely get a gap and then I goes after a few moves. How do you keep the gaps open? I did fluke one fruit, but finally used hammers on the rest.

hannah skelton said...

This one finally kills it for me, Did not think it could get much worse. BUT IT DID (Boring as hell king) pff bye bye

Anonymous said...

2nd try I used a sprinkle ball. Got lucky and made another sprinkle ball, used a hand switch and boom! After reading all the posts I decided it was worth a couple of boosters to get past it. Good luck all!

Maya said...

I had 2 Sprinkle bombs together 3 times but it didnt work :-(. It didnt even get through.

Anonymous said...

I got two sprinkle balls together, switched them and it didn't work :'( tediously boring! FED UP NOW! Grrrrrr!!!

sassy said...

Only way is 2 color bombs. I almost made it with a wheel but not enough moves. Boring

Looking for two color bombs together to try and win.....here's hoping 😳

This level s really bad! Think I am quitting. It really stinks.

Anonymous said...

I have been on this level for over a month. There is no way out except 4 hammers. Don't waste any money on this level. I don't even bother to play anymore. Just get your free spins & wait for 4 hammers! RIDICULOUS

Anonymous said...

I've hit some fruits 5 or 6 times and nothing happens . Am I the only one this is happening to?

Anonymous said...

This deffo needs hammers - no way round it! I have plenty of sprinkles from the daily wheel, but since you can only use one at a time, I have no idea how people manage to get two next to each other!! When using hammers, you just have to make sure you have the required minimum points. I was afraid I was going to use up all these valuable hammers, only to not have enough points!!! As to the folks saying the next level is impossible - I jsut got that on my first try, no boosters, felt it was really easy?? Maybe King changed it or I just got plain lucky :-)

joeh37 said...

I got two sprinkles together but it only cleared the liquorice which then came back. This level is a twat. I'm probably going to use 4 hammers and move on!

Betsy Ogan said...

Thanks for the lollipop hammer suggestion. B-o-r-I-n-g level and now I'm done with it in four moves! BAM!!!
