Candy Crush Saga Level 1579

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1579 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Get 175,000 points in 25 moves! A big target! But you have bombs, which score big points, especially if cleared using a colour bomb.
See our page on scoring more points for tips.
You also have mystery candies which can be a big help, or a big problem, depending on luck.
If you get some colour bombs from the mystery candies you shouldn't have too much trouble getting the score, but if you get a lot of blockers and chocolate you'll have to work hard.
The first priority has to be unlocking and clearing the bombs at the top.
Use stripes, stripe/wrap combos or colour bombs to get to them. Once they are cleared you must keep making those combos, especially colour bombs to get the score you need.
Colour bomb/wrap combos are best for scoring but avoid colour bomb/stripes unless you need them to get the bombs as this combo is very destructive, but doesn't give many points.
Remember it doesn't matter how high your score is, if the bombs count down to zero you will fail the level.

Been stuck on this level for a couple of days now. Not even getting close. The bombs get me every time. Am getting plenty of horizontal stripies but nothing to match them with. Everything gets blown up before I have a chance to use it.
A very frustrating level.
BTW, have made the required score several times but still got clobbered by the bombs.
And to make matters worse, the bonus wheel has not appeared today!

jem again:
I should have mentioned - almost all the mystery candies contain horizontal stripes. Not helpful unless able to be combined with another special candy.

jem yet again:
Finally, I managed to clear all the bombs and had only 3000 points to get when I ran out of moves. Decided to use some gold bars to finish the game off but it didn't give me that option! The only option I got was End Game!! WTF???

Thought this level would be frustrating after reading the above comments but it was a nice pleasant level for a change. Maybe it was a lucky board? Anyways, I did it on the first try. Now, let's attack next level - qualified hard by King.

Just another timed level by another name!

I used a sprinkle combined with a stripe/ wrap from my stash and finished 3 stars.
Good luck!

I think they should lower the score to maybe 125,000. The most I get is like 121,00. And all I get is useless stuff like chocolate, licorice or more count down bombs in eggs...

Sad this game used to be fun...

Actually quite on the contrary my dear. This level is more than doable. Create wrapped candies and it will work out. Gl to you. If you need more tips email me.

Darned if I cannot get to the bombs in time. I have played this level over 150 times and have yet to get rid of the bombs in time.

Any suggestions?

JB said...

Dammit if after my post above I did'nt clear the bombers with 14 moves left and made many combinations yet still 40,000 pts shy?!? Wtf??

JB said...

Got it!!!! Matched colour bomb with a wrap TWICE!! Got over 366,000! Gl all!!!

I wasted a lot of time and boosters on this before I followed the advice to go with color bomb and stripe/wrap and got rid of the bombs with the first three or four moves. From then on it was a breeze. Thanks CC and JP.

Be careful with a colour bomb/stripe combo. Best to use only if there are no bombs with the stripe colour. Bombs have all the points and if you're not careful a colour bomb/stripe will convert the valuable bombs to not very valuable stripes and you'll never end up with enough points at the end.

I eventually got 2 colour bombs next to each other which instantly got me close to 175,000 points, I'd say that's what you aim for but obviously there's some luck involved!

The colour bomb/wrapped combos were acting strange on the computer. The first time I got one, the other candies of that colour changed to a wrap and then detonated, and there was no secondary detonation. In another attempt, I got a colour bomb against a wrap (purple), and it seemed half the candies on the board turned to purple wraps and detonated, and the points went from 40,000 or so to 230,000 immediately. That gave me the level, though I had to use a hammer to get rid of a bomb I could not clear otherwise. Maybe this is a peculiarity of score-only levels. I've never seen this behaviour before, and I am on level 1579.

Posting for luck. Bombs get me every time. I hate bombs.

Started with a wrap stripe and a color bomb. Reset till the color bomb was next to the wrap. Not much happened though. The rest of the board was somewhat lucky. Lots of useful candies. But I still had to use 3 hammers I had won to clear the remaining bombs after I got enough points. I didn't want to play it any more.

Tin tin here. Got the same anon did above. 2 chocolate sprinkles adjacent to one another and that all but did it.

Good for you Tin tin...,I'm finding it treacherous!

I had to score 225000 on my device (Android)... :( Couldn't even come close... In the end I used lots of boosters (color bomb, striped/wrapped, hand switch) and even bought 5 extra moves to get it done...
Horrible level :(

Anonymous said...

Yes, the color bomb/wrapped combo turns now the candies of that color into wraps. I personally like it better than the previous "effect" of this combination

Anonymous said...

P.S. It seems to be level- and device- independent, as I'm playing on mobile and observed this effect in all levels I've played in the last couple of weeks

Thanks for the tip: I also used colour bomb and stripe/wrap booster and cleared it that way! Grace from DU

It took me a couple of days to pass this. I wasted a few boosters. I even took the time to reset to get the color ball next to a wrapped candy to get the extra points. Most of the time the bombs took me out. A few times I finished without enough points. A couple of times around 149k, once 169k. Finally I just got a lucky board and was able to make some wrapped candies and color balls. I ended up using 2 hammers to get the wraps and colors together to create a bunch of wrapped candies. That did it! My advice would be to not waste boosters (unless you have tons of them) and wait until you can make a lot of wraps and wrap/color ball combos. I had planned to buy some extra moves if I ever got to 170k, but the only time I got there I passed. And once I hit the goal I got all kinds of cascades. Good luck! This is doable, it just takes patience. And luck. Like lots of others I wish King would make some levels that are more interesting and that take more skill than patience to pass!

Tried many times without coming close, won't be using any more boosters, just a waste. Will wait for that lucky board, sigh

Candy Thompson said...

Not much fun anymore when you have to spend 5 or 6 days waiting for a lucky board...I like a challenge not just luck...trying to find something FUN AGAIN!

Anonymous said...

Here we go again! Another seemingly impossible level without King bestowing a lucky board on us! I've been very very close just once in a free 2 hour period. I absolutely refuse to spend a penny more on this game. I've hated this episode from the start

DD Finlay said...

Is this a joke? I've cleared all bombs several times and 21 moves left but still can't get the points??!! What is the point

Anonymous said...

Exactly! Another pitch to get you to purchase boosters! If it's not marked "hard level" then why is it so hard to pass? Oh, wait, for "lucky" board. Bullshit!!!!

Brian Mueller said...

Used every boast I had, had bombs cleared in 3 moves, completely open board. Still can not get even half points required even with multiple color bomb combos. I guess, as almost is always the case, I'll just have to wait for the game to decide if can move on and win it on its own.

Anonymous said...

Another frustrating level. Always before a treasure chest so can't reach it. Must wait for a lucky board but I have been waiting a long time already. Yikes!

Marci said...

I got the required points after mAny many tries and when I did, I still didn't pass the level because I still had moved left..

Anonymous said...

I thought I was never going to get this level The mystery candies would be mostly licorice, blockers, bombs and chocolate. I couldn't get over 80k and that was after clearing all the bombs. I wasted so many boosters but they didn't help so I stopped. After that I started getting scores well over 100k. This seems to happen to me quite often. Stop using boosters and I get good boards. I needed two hammers for the last bomb but I finished with 3 stars and 380k.
