Candy Crush Saga Level 1602

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1602 Candy Crush Saga without boosters.
From the first move you need to look for a vertical stripe or colour bomb to unlock the extra time candies in the top part of the board. Once the extra time candies begin to fall you can start to match them to keep the game moving. 
You will also get bombs dropping from the top, these will give you lots of points so match them whenever possible to get your score up.

Whatever you do, don't use a color bomb/stripe combo in the beginning. Once the time candies are gone, that's it. No more fall down.

No idea how I beat the level leave some timers to explode at the end is my best quess.

Just passed it. (After a lot of tries.) Nothing special, it just kept giving me the "+5s" when I needed them, and a chocolate ball appeared right near the end, with a ton of the same color on the board. Still barely passed, during the end when the stripes and wrapped explode by themselves.

Gotta say, if it wasn't for your blog, I'd still be on level 347! Thank you

I have been on this level for at least a week. Don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I can't seem to get more than 140,000 points. And I only got that once.

I posted that last comment & just passed it! It pays to complain on the this blog!!

Judith Harrison said...

The closest I've come is 153,000. Its over so quickly, and takes forever to build the lives up again.

Can't seem to get enough points

I just kept trying, not really getting close until I got a great board. Not even sure what I did, but the +5s kept raining down, and before I knew the game was over and I had 269,000 points! Yay!! Do not like the timed levels, but have learned to be more relaxed about them, as the good board will come along. JS

Reckon I'm too old for timed levels, stresses me out. Still, got through after a dozen tries, just and no more, 180,116 points. Thanks for the advice.

Blew my lucky board early when I got lots of combos, knocked out lots of bombs and got to 320,000 points, but I was not keeping my eye on the timer or that bomb in the corner about to go off. At 320,000 points, I should have simply stopped and let the timer run out when that bomb was at one tick, but I wasn't paying attention and lost those points when the bomb hit zero. It took many more tries of not even being close before I had more luck. As time ran out and the special candies detonated, the resulting cascade created a colour bomb that when it did go off, that put me over 180,000 points finally and got me past this level.
I hate timed levels.

Needed to pay attention to bombs more. Kept getting me until I focused on them. Used hammer to finish last one.

Zenith said...

Good luck old timer!!

Sounds like a personal problem.

Catgirl said...

Wasted a hammer and still only got 157,000, grrr

Managed to get 3 stars on about the 6th try. Just kept trying to make stripes and get the 5+ candies as they fell. Didn't watch the timer. I find it distracts me. Was very lucky. Near the end got a chocolate bomb/stripe combo which helped. Good luck everyone. Your lucky board will come. It always does!

Seems impossible to me. I can't even get 10000.

Not another time level King. Think you want to get rid of some players. Thank goodness for Cookie Jam. Would advise anyone to change to this game. I started this game about 1500 levels behind Candy and now have gone ahead. It is my saviour anytime King throws up difficult level. It can be very challenging but no time levels. Having terrible trouble with 1602 and finding it very difficult to solve.

Anonymous said...

This level is impossible for me, getting nowhere near. This could well be the end after 2years plus playing this game. Sounds like Cookie Jam doesn't have any timed levels so that's where i'll be heading. Bye....

I HATE timed levels and typically don't do especially well on them. Sometimes I end up buying extra time to get through. This one though was not that hard for me. I almost passed the first time (by accident I think). The second time I got nervous as usual and played too fast. The third time I remembered what had happened on the previous turns. You have to make stripes to get the plus five candies to drop, but you have to do it carefully. As the stripes open up a channel for those +5's some bombs will follow them down. The trick is to keep making stripes every couple of times and explode those bombs for points. If you can play close to the bottom of the board you get the chance to make mini- cascades and these will release a few of the +5 candies at a time. Explode those along with the bombs and you'll get the points you need. If you make color bombs use them to explode bombs if you can. I found that making stripe/wrap combos or color bomb/stripe combos worked against me on my second try because the released too many of the +5 candies at once and effectively ended my chance to burst enough bombs to get the needed points. You really have to play slowly and pick your moves on this one. For me it goes against the grain to slow down on a timed level but that's what worked. Hope this helps someone get through!

Joanne Murray said...

I agree with you Bill. I focussed so much on getting stripes etc, that I completely forgot about the bombs. Thought I was doing great, then BOOM. I kinda do and don't like this level. It's over too quick though.

I hate these timed levels. It stresses me out. I just can't seem to get pass this level. Not even close. Another game is starting to look good if i don't pass this soon .

As the first post noted, *don't* combine a candy ball with a striped candy. I tried that once and used up all of my +5 candies. However, I did start with a candy ball and used it to uncover some of the +5 candies. I immediately got a second candy ball, and did the same. From that point it was just a matter of getting the extra-time candies, though not too quickly as your timer only goes to 30 seconds. And as other posters have noted, you have to pay attention to bombs. If you have one about to explode and you can't get to it but have enough points for one star, stop playing and let the clock go to zero. No reason to go for a second or third star.

I just can't get this one. Gotten in the 140,000s a couple times but mostly under 100,000.

Is someone on commission for churning out timed levels? I really dread these as I get totally stressed out and mind goes blank?

Anonymous said...

I'm so done with this level, only managed over 100000 once. Been on this for days.

Anonymous said...

Oh come on cc, I've just spent 2 solid hours on this level and nothing. Got close a few times but not close enough to waste another 9 gold bars on. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I've tried from every conceivable angle. Please let me past this level before I go nuts.

Anonymous said...

Yay, I got it at last. Used one chocolate ball as somebody suggested and all hell broke lose. Ended up with 3 stars and nearly 300,000 points.

I liked the game Cookie Jam just as much as this ... now I like it more. I hate the spawners, the chocolate, the timed levels. It's getting to the point that I don't like any of the levels, and when it's no longer fun - bye bye!

Crusher said...

Been stuck here forever. Really bored of trying over and over and not coming anywhere near close.

Anonymous said...

Can I just say to anyone who's stuck - don't give up. I'm terrible at timed levels, have limited function in my hands, so dread them. The last 2 really difficult timed levels I passed by building up a stock of gold bars, but getting extra time this way didn't seem to work with this. So I just carried on, and used a sprinkle each time to try to open the top. The time I passed, I had the sprinkle on the board, luckily got another one then the phone went and i was distracted and time ran out. To my astonishment, the two sprinkles exploded, a load of candies at the top turned to wraps and cased a cascade. Result- I passed with over 300 points and 3 stars. Total fluke. So persevere and it will happen for you. Lin.

I played a lackluster round and when my time ran out i thought i had 27000 points. But turns out it was 227000. I think what did wss i used a color bomb on a time bomb and got big time points for it.

It comes down to luck for me spent 3 days and ended up with 6 or 7 chocolate balls in a row and ended up with 621380. Total ass luck.

Teresa said...

Unreal that I have been here over a damn month and can't even get close.....I hate this game it's not fun anymore :-(((

connie said...

Sure would give me something to be thankfull for this Thanksgiving day if I could just pass this level and move on. Please...

Donna Starling said...

Judith ask google to show u how to get more turns on candy crush. There is a way to do it by changing your clock & them changing it back while giving u 5 more x's

Anonymous said...

After the time runs out, sometimes the top will explode and other times the game just ends. I can't figure out why there is a difference.

Suzie O said...

Ugh, this one was almost impossible and I when I reached 160,000 I had to buy extra time twice and even that wasn't enough, on my second try I had to buy a flying saucer and finally that put me through, ugh!!!!

Impossible!!! Ready to switch to pogo. Got this far and lots of frustration but this is a killer I think

Eileen said...

Once again a rediculous level, not fun UGH!

Been trying for awhile and can't come close 😢. Thanks for the tips! 😊. Have to hope for a lucky board ☺

Anonymous said...

Good advice about not using stripe and chocolate sprinkle at beginning. Will use all +5 but to get 180,000 pts is impossible for me. Not even getting close. How boring. Going to try soda crush for now. GL

I've been playing this level for weeks and can't even come close. King, please give me a break!

Anonymous said...

Just watching the above video and really don't see that it's any different to the way I'm playing it. The only difference is the score on the video raises at a vastly greater amount than it does on my game. Why is that King???? Again a fair game for everyone no matter what your playing on be it computer or phone!!!!!

WoW again a fucking level! 180.000 points in 30 seconds? Are you kidding? Well time to stop playing quite a while, go on with my nice games, not kingsize, .see you about 3 or 4 months?

Hard level! Thats why most of the people stop playing it!!!

Dirk said...

The best advice is to play this level on a PC. I tried for days on Android mobile and there were few opportunities to make any specials at all. PC is much better. I passed it on the third try on PC. I was able to make a color bomb on the first move, and then a striped candy next to it. I brought those together and cleared nearly all of the top of the board. I kept an eye on the clock and waited until there was enough time elapsed to match a +5 second candy. If you match it with less time, you'll lose some of the benefit as the "leftover" time isn't stored. I then just kept making specials, matching them, using the +5 second candies when enough time elapsed until they were gone. I ended up with over 200,000 points.

Playing on my tablet and can't get anywhere. Have never gotten more than halfway to 180000. No color bombs, just a few stripes. I think I'm at the end of my road.

Nancy said...

This level is impossible for me, I am not even close!

Silverdollarbill said...

Made it NBU, 299,880. Been playing a few days. Got a stripped wrapped combo early on. Later matched a CB with an orange, because one orange color bomb only had 2 moves left on it,but 2 oranges had extra moves on them too. Using up a CB with just a single candy opens up special candies.

I agree who makes these levels up so many stupid time levels can't you think of new different levels cc.. someone needs wake up

Been trying to beat this level for 2 weeks. Even played it 2 hrs straight. Read all the tips but either get low score or around 115,000. Almost ready to quit game due to this level!
