Candy Crush Saga Level 1287

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1287 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Allina Rumfelt
 If you can detonate all three cake cannons, they will clear out all the jelly.  
The promise of a chocolate bomb for popping a popcorn is a distraction.  Focus on the cakes and let the cannons clear out the jelly.  Luckily all three cakes are on the bottom of the board so all your specials can be dropped down to form combos.  The first cannon will remove the licorice so you can get to the one to the left.   There are portals to consider so once you have the two on the right cleared moves on the lower left side of the board can help move specials over there - they can also displace part of a combo you have set up and hinder your progress if your not careful. 
 If you have a combo set up, use it right away so you don't lose it.

Yet another level where we have to wait on the lucky board. Not enough room to make combo's. Lots off moves wasted because there's nothing else to do. Bored stupid

Amo said...

The strategy here is to detonate the three cake cannons. I got through this after a few tries and it was not as difficult as it appeared to be. Work on making loads of wrapped/stripped combo. In my case I was lucky to get two color bombs lined up side by side. Just be patient and enjoy the challenge. Good fun.

Definitely need a lucky board. So few moves that when you eventually make a special candy, it most likely will have to be wasted because it's the only move left on the restricted board! Posting here for some All Help lucky Karma!

Ok there is no jelly under popcorn so ignore it. Concentrate on 2 wraps together over the two cakes which will most probably clear them..did for me two games. Combos are not hard to make as comment above indicates. ..if u are this far then stop whining and its not hard!! Once two cakes are cleared its basically done

Don't care what you say! This level was not fun. Played it over and over and if I managed to make a combo it self detonated before I could use it. Used a fish four times and it helped somewhat but only got one once and two once. Finally got somewhat of a lucky board in that for the first time I cleared both cakes on the right. Then got some stripes to clear all but one section of last cake. Running out of moves I remembered that I could use a lollipop on the cake slice. That was it. Done!
Hang in there because the next level is super fun.

Very frustrating level. I can only manage to clear 2 cakes before I run out of moves. My wrap making skills in this level are pathetic!not having any fun with this one. Hopefully the lucky board will come soon! M getting impatient!

Anonymous said...

I know what I have to do. But I just can't do it. Not enough moves. I might even use boosters to start on this one if I can't beat without next 50 times or so.

Van5 said...

Finally got this one on my first try tonight. Got 2 wraps together above the cakes and that cleared them both. Got a horizontal stripe next to the single cake and another on the right side on the bottom. The 2 stripes cleared the 3rd cake and all the jelly above. Finished with 30 moves left! I was amazed as I'd not come close before. Good luck everyone! The lucky board will come as it did for me.

Impossible level!! Too hard to make wraps and stripes.
No fun at all, so vack to real life.......goodbye CC !!

Mar Mak said...

Got through with a lucky board. 2 wrapped together wiped out the 2 cakes early on, then was pretty easy after that.

Fish hint was very helpful thanx

Use a combo booster. Got it on the first try which was lucky because I only had two combo boosters left. Good luck.

I'm cross-eyed from doing this. Laurie

So I post the above comment and pass on my next try :). Laurie

25 lives so far on this one ... Making loads of special candies but not able to get them next to each other ... Ho hum ... Awaiting the lucky board

Very hard level. Hope I get a lucky board soon or its good-bye CC for me!

MC said...

Two wrapped together knocked out the both the cakes on bottom right. The rest was straight forward, had only to knock down the cake on bottom left. There are no jellies under pop corns. No need to worry about them. I couldn't grow any of them in my winning attempt.

Anonymous said...

Very surprised by the comments here. I considered this an easy level, loads of combos. Finished first try. Must have been lucky.

Little Bee said...

I'm very sad. All the boosters I had collected just disappeared when I got to this level. I really do not understand what happened. Can anyone explain it to me?

Anonymous said...

Hard level. I tried about 50 times before I got it.

That tip about the two wrapped candies right above the cakes was great. That really did the job in helping me finish. Then with a couple of horizontal stripes, I knocked out the cake at lower left, which knocked out all the jellies at upper left.

Another difficult and frustrating level, what a surprise!

Difficult, frustrating, boring level. Not able to break even 2 cakes leave alone 3. Been playing so many times yet not getting even close to beating this level. Waiting for a lucky board

Anonymous said...

Can't believe I never knew about the two wraps lol

Anonymous said...

After nearly three weeks, I finally read the tips. Did the two wrapped over the two wheels, made two moves on the left one and hit the last slice with a saved up hammer. FINALLY! Thanks for the tips everyone.

Jennifer said...

I was struggling with this level. Came here and read the recommendations. The suggestion of two wrapped candies above the cakes is a good one, but they are not as easy to make as some of the people made it sound. I just kept going until I got a lucky board and I finished this on the very last move thanks to a lot of stripes and stripe/wrap combos.

There is one layer of jelly under the single cake on the left side, but breaking up the cake knocked out the jelly when the cannon came out.

This is a very hard and unenjoyable level.

Anon lafy said...

It has taken me a week of frustrating tries to get this one. Eventually I got both cakes and was left with one slice of the third one so I hit it with a lollipop hammer and thank goodness - 'Sugar Crush'. I have no tips except to keep trying as I did? Boosters did not help although I used some!

Anonymous said...

Not fun.. Not fun... C'mon candy crushers makers if we have gone this far.. Give us something to aim for but stupid moves that mean nothing.. Taking some time off.. Once again NOT FUN!!!!

Wish CC would stop making levels based on luck, In the 1200's we certainly deserve better

Anonymous said...

Still suck on this level, can't even get 2 wraps together is this the end?

lucy said...

Can't even break one cake crazy boring levels before this was fun I miss those.

lucy said...

OMG cc I hate this level so bored after a 100 tries I have tried every thing with no help.

Anonymous said...

Yeh, right. The hint is crap. Seriously?! Just detonate the 3 cake bombs?? No worries, I'll get right onto that. I don't normally come on here and complain but this level is ridiculous and the hint is even sillier. I'm doing better when I go for the popcorn. Ms Cookie Kirby, you must spend hours playing just to get that fabulous board (read sarcasm) to put up for us all to see.

thank you for the advice. if you focus on the cake is an easy level

Wtf is a "cannon"?

Bill. said...

Managed to get two wrapped candy next to each other just above the two cakes that got rid of the two cakes at the same time. Then got the third cake fairly easily.

Anonymous said...

Very hard level for me. I have got the two cakes but can't get the other one. Very frustrating!!

Anonymous said...

This level makes me want to quit this game all together. Candies just explode on their own. Not very fun.

Anonymous said...

Great tip - two wraps above the cakes and bingo - no boosters and 3 stars - great website

Soooo boring its unbelievable. Hardly play found me game glad cuz I don't even take 20 moves and say heck with this lost all interest last couple levels. Guess that's why they sold it loet of people deleted it and found something else. Heck I received 30/lives in 2 days keep adding up that's how much I quit playing usually I have no lives. Boooring glad I found a new game love it! Have fun cc aren't u bored of it!!!

Feels like a cheat -- or a bug -- when a stripe / wrap combo clears 4 slices from a new cake the first time you hit it, but if there's only 2 slices left on a cake the same combo clears only ONE slice. Aggravating. I'm giving it up for Lent anyway. Will collect 40 more boosters & throw everything at it next month.

I thoroughly enjoyed the last several easy levels. Now let's see how this one is gonna go.

Anonymous said...

Wow! I'm one of those that can finally say "I passed it on the first try!"

What a tedious level. I've gotten two of the pizzas once. Something odd, however. When I play the game on my iPhone it starts with a free candy ball. Don't know how that happened. But in this level, the candy ball is worthless if you can't match it with a striped candy.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, it would appear that the best chance of defeating this level is to be lucky enough to combine two wrapped candies on top of the two pizzas.

I'm sorry to say that I'm about 5 lives away from being done with CC. Horrible, horrible level; no the whole episode has been horrible. I'm sad to have come this far and have it end so ugly. I'm not stupid and I consider myself a fairly decent player, but this is ridiculous. Yes, I used boosters that I'd accumulated over the last 1287 levels, and I had a decent bank of gold bars, but I'm watching them dwindle slowly away on this stupid, STUPID level! And, I WILL NOT SPEND MONEY TO CONTINUE. Oh, and before those of you who are super-human and finished this level "on the first try" "with 15 moves left" start calling me a whiner, let me say I'm just being a realist. I know the level of my intelligence and I'm far above and away spending any more time on this is crappy game! So long, farewell and good luck to the rest of you. I'm finally outta here, and it feels so good!! ๐Ÿ˜„

After 200+ tries at this one, I'm finally done...with the whole damn thing! No gold, no boosters and for a solid week, all the daily wheel has choked up is a speckled bomb, which I promptly use and promptly lose. I don't believe this one is winnable unless you have an enormous stash of boosters and you use them. To you that claim you did it on the first try, BRAVO TO YOU, but I'm calling BS unless you did in fact use all those boosters. I have exploded all the cakes several times and the most moves I have left are 2 to finish it off, so to whoever said all you have to do is explode those and GAME OVER..NOPE, at least not for this "dumbass". See ya King and Candy Crush...you've succeeded in losing anther gamer all in the name of greed.

Thanks for the tips on needing to break the cakes. I need to read this blog first since I was working on the popcorns.

c/candycrush here
I found this a hard level, very difficult to get the cakes cleared. Bit boring too at times.
I thought there was jelly under the popcorn but there isn't so it doesn't matter if you clear them or not, which is just as well as I didn't.

This is one level where a fish booster really, really helps. I was lucky enough to get three in my game & that helped to clear the cakes faster.

Well worth trying a fish booster, in my opinion. I don't think I could have got through to this level without my free boosters along the way to be honest.

Never pay a cent Bobby said...

I had to resort to three hammers to get the two right cakes. Only do it if you have substantial moves left. As another person posted, you don't need to worry about the top left box much with no jelly under popcorn. I ignored popcorn. Getting wraps and stripes down the portals to the left box helps finish that one off.

I'm finding it bloody hard to make any combo's please help me with a lucky ๐Ÿ€ BOARD PRETTY PLEASE KING

Anonymous said...

I don't know how anyone is getting two wraps together over the cakes, I can hardly get a single wrap for the whole game! I don't like this level at all.

Anonymous said...

The game must have changed since last year cos I cant get colors together like you guys can.

Anonymous said...

When the game gives you 50 moves to clear 21 jellies, and game after game you use all the moves without clearing a SINGLE jelly, now that's what I call a boring game. Oh wait, a couple times I got one jelly. BORING!!!!!!!!

Dirk said...

When you clear a cake, the cannon is what appears in the bottom right of the screen and fires clearing the board.

Anonymous said...

Okay, read all the tips. Extremely hard level. Can barely get one cake. I don't know if I even want to get this level. I see the next is a hard one also. Not going to complain about King. I guess we are all making a choice to continue with this game.

Used all 4 of the flying saucers and got it with 42 moves left. 4 mil on points Rockin like a big dog

Anonymous said...

I did it - yipeee - after reading the comments - and also fortunate to get a lucky board with wrapped candles and combos - keep at it! It's doable..

Suzie O said...

Even getting a lucky board wasn't enough for me. I actually got sprinkle bombs paired with stripes twice and they almost all go the wrong way. I had to use two lollipops to get the bottom two pies and then I had no good moves for the third pie... so frustrating!! When I used two more lollipops on the final pie it was over...whew! Really hated this level and btw when I was able to get two wraps above the two pies it only cleared the top of the pie not the whole thing.
