Candy Crush Saga Level 1288

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1288 Candy Crush Saga without boosters.
Try to get to the mystery candies as quickly as possible and with luck they will give you the combos you will need to unlock and clear the chocolate at the bottom.
Once the chocolate is gone it won't come back so you can concentrate on clearing the jelly.
The combos will also grow the popcorn in the middle to give you a colour bomb.
This can be quite a fun level once you get to the mystery candies with lots of cascades and colour bombs appearing.

After one unsuccessful game without checking your site, I watched your video and aced it with 3 stars by totally working mystery candies on left side of board as you suggested. Sure enough, more special candies cascaded down with each move and they pretty much took care of clearing the board with just a bit of guidance on my part. Thank you!

Followed your advice and worked only on the mystery candies of the top left side. Once your opened up the board, the rest was history. Very fun level, and enjoy.

All I can say is fun, fun, fun! Lots of cascades and I love mystery candies. Had no problem with the chocolate. Just watch the bombs (I hate them).
First try, no boosters, three stars, 34 moves left. I'll be playing this one again.

Excellent advice to work on the mystery candies! Worked like a charm. So many explosions. Didn't worry about bombs or chocolate (both of which I totally abhor!). Finished with 30 moves left and over a million points. Oh that all the levels could be like this! I don't need to wish everyone luck! This is a fun level!

Crazy level. Clears itself with a little help of strategic matches!! NC

It was like watching a the 4th of July fireworks. They just kept exploding themselves. 3 stars over 5 million points. I thought it was malfunctioning for awhile.

Finally!!! A fun game which has become such a rarity here in candy crush land. Going to put the game down after this one and wallow in the success (first try) because I'm sure the nightmare levels will will return after this one.

After reading the comments I was looking forward to this one but obviously I'm not in favour at the moment. All my mystery candles have yielded so far are chocolate, blockers & more bombs. I shall wait in hope of the cascades.

Finishing with over 30 moves left? I only have 20 to begin with.

I also only have 20 moves to begin with!

Sometimes, I wonder if I'm playing a different game from everyone else.

I get only 20 moves, to start with. The mystery candies never give anything that can help clear the board.

Boring level.

Cleared this on the first try. Tried to keep up with the bombs, then decided to ignore them and work the bottom of the board, which led to opening the board up more and then the mystery candies took over and grew the popcorn and cleared the board for me. Fun level.

Grrrrrrr. I took your advice and it went just the way everyone said. Everything blew up and when I cleared the board, it froze!!! Needless to say, I didn't complete the level AND I lost all the lives I had in my inbox!!! They make this game hard enough without stupid stuff like that happening!!!

That tip worked for me. I did it first time, but I thought I"d do it again and no, three times I got chocolate or a bomb. So I can see it might be frustrating. Just ,keep trying and you will get there.

Keep at the mystery candy hopefully they will form combinations to clear the jelly. Ignore the bombs completely.

This is a useless level IMO. No skill comes into it.
I was playing away with chocolate multiplying all over the place& all my special candy being eaten, thinking this isn't even marked as a hard level & I'll never get through, when suddenly things started exploding, the game carried on by itself & suddenly it was all over with 3 stars.

I don't know what happened really. I don't mind easy but I do prefer levels where I think I am at least playing the game. 1/10

I also have only 20 turns on my iPod, which makes it seem impossible to me. Has anyone with only 20 moves finished this level? Thanks.

Hi. Yes I have. 20 moves and somehow finished it first go with 5 moves left. Not sure how it happened but I got a couple of wraps side by side top left and that set off a cascade that went on until every jelly was zapped.

I only have 20 moves. And it's a "harder level". I'm waiting for a 'lucky board'. I just started it, so the more I try, the better I'll do. :)

I've been trying it for days on end now, game after game. The only mysteries I get are either chocolate, stone blocks or, if I'm lucky, a chocolate bomb, wrap or striped behind some jelly, so quite useless within 20 moves.

Still waiting for that one lucky board, no skill involved. Blah.

Gudrun said...

EDIT former post: made it after about 150 tries (no joke). No fun at all.

I only have 20 moves as well. Very jealous of those of you who finish with more than I start with. Between the chocolate and the bombs this level is proving to be impossible with just 20 moves. If there is a match of special candies it is normally more chocolate. I don't think a lucky board is even going to help with this one. Love this game. Sad.

I guess the good thing about this level is there's no such thing as coming up just short of defeating it. In each failed attempt I knew after one move that I was a goner. A typical first move, a 3 combo of Easter eggs, resulted in a frozen stripe, a fish (not frozen!), and a brick. The stripe and brick completely clogged the top left. Game over.
Don't worry about having only 20 moves. If you can't pass the level in 10 moves, infinite moves won't help.
