Candy Crush Saga Level 1658

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1658 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 1658 Candy Crush Saga lives up to it's classification as a hard level!
You have to make 10 double stripe combos in only 35 moves, difficult at the best of times, but your fist move has to open up at least one gap in the marmalade at the top of the board to allow more candies to fall.
The lucky candies along the bottom and side of the board will all turn into stripes, so unlock them as carefully as you can and you should be able to get several combos from them.
Once the lucky candies are gone you shouldn't have too much trouble making more stripes, the problem is getting them together. Remember you don't need wraps and only make colour bombs if you can't make a stripe instead. 
Don't make too many stripes around the board, try to make one combo before you make too many others as there is a danger of them self destructing if there are too many specials on the board at the same time.

Anyone got any tips forme? Stuck for 3 days. Everything keeps exploding and I get to 6 or 7 combos before I am out of moves. M.

I need tips as well - nothing seems to work here. Boosters don't help and even careful planning does nothing. Every time I set something up - it gets ruined by a wrap or sprinkle ball. I've reached this level and never spent a penny - so I will just keep trying and hoping for that "Candy Crush Miracle" !! LOL

There has to be a secret to this level. I can't even get close and boosters are no help. There must be a reason I keep playing this game, but at the moment, I can't think of why. Addiction?

Well, I agree with all the comments above. I guess I will have to wait until I can play it on my tablet where I have over 60 hand switches saved. That should do it!

Anonymous said...

Whoa! This one's a real bear. I agree with above, I'm going to have to wait until Wednesday's mobile release. The closest I've come is getting 7 out of 10.

Took numerous tries. Clear marmalade 1st. Try not to make to many stripes on board as matching will then explode most and youll have to start over.

Finally passed after many, many attempts. No boosters!!!

Bill. said...

The trick is to just clear a few of the marmalade at the top to ensure candies can continue to fall down. Concentrate on making stripes in the middle and matching these only. Matching stripes in the middle will slowly uncover the liquorice covered stripes allowing you to match these when they turn into stripes. A little bit of luck involved but careful planning will allow you to use most of the existing liquorice covered stripes since they need to be hit twice before they turn into stripes. The chocolate balls are not helpful unless you can get rid of a minority colour to create more stripes. Remember stay away from the liquorice, it will uncover in good time!

Passed on 2nd attempt using checkmark booster but it also seemed like a luckier board than the first one.

Tintin 1 here. Yes a stinker. Everything explodes. I don't have many boosters on my pc but have plenty on my tablet so will have to wait til I can do it there I think. Have used heaps of lives to no avail.

Anonymous said...

Yah!! Finally passed. Loaded up on boosters and used all 3. Gl all

Anonymous said...

Tintin 1 again. Finally got it!! Yay!! Used one tick booster, made quite a few striped candies. What a struggle though.

Bill. said...

The real Bill. Avoid setting off the tick candy as they self explode make combinations in the middle section, quite a difficult level.

JB said...

Was stuck on this level longer then hoped. In the end had to use two hammers to line up two lots of stripes and passed. Moving on...

I've given up on trying levels without using boosters. With the number of boosters King gives us these days might as well use them. I've got 54 chocolate sprinkles, 30 stripe/wrap combos, 96 coconut wheels, 104 mystery tick candies, 120 fish boosters, 40 hand switches, 30 hammers and 35 gold bars, all from playing sugar drops. With these many boosters, which everyone on this level should be able to accumulate, passing levels has never been easier. Boosters don't really help on this level but hand switches and hammers make it very easy. Just play for sugar drops regularly, build an arsenal of boosters and it's very easy.

billyrabbit said...

This must be the toughest level yet. Been stuck for a week now. The cascades blow away any moves that have been set up, maybe i'm overdue a break.

myrabug said...

Stuck on this level for days..... the combos explode before I can get to them....... sigh

What makes this even WORSE is King is giving a free wrap in this level...I don't want it here!

Ms. Cookie said...

Watch your language Adnan.

CC from vero said...

King gave me a free stripe which helped. Got this one after 3 tries. The ticks are of course a huge help, but can be a pain in the ass too!! They are hard to set up so you dont blow them all up at once.
Just takes a little skill and you will have it in no time! Good luck!

CC from vero said...

Just got here . King didn't give me a free stripe - on iPad gives you a sprinkle which just makes this harder. Got down to needing 4 more but thanks for the middle tip . I will try it.
Wish King could eliminate trolls- they just mislead the real crushers!

CC from veri said...

Got rid of my sprinkle right away by using it on color with least number in licorice. Used tick mark and tried to make on match at a time . In spite of a number of blowups , got lucky and finished with a couple moves to spare!

Nice to see Ms Cookiie s authority over this blog. Will we be able to see her picture. Want to see and appreciate.

William Panzer said...

William here bills real troll. As usual seemed impossible 50 tries then all the sudden kaboom everything just lined up for me all I had to do was switch. You people all do know about the switching the date on your device trick for extra lives?

William Panzer said...

Maybe not quite 50 tries, but it seamed like that.

Anonymous said...

Thanks CC from veri! I followed you tips and it worked for me first time

billyrabbit said...

had to use 9 gold bars for extra moves but it was worth it to pass the worst level ever!!!!!!!

Cat said...

Took a few tries and a lucky board, but mostly came close enough to truly believe with luck and extreme caution you don't need boosters. My tips are before you set off sripe/stripe, make any possible stripes which will not affect combo so they won't be lost by the combo, and be very careful to set off combo in the most advantageous direction. Good luck.

Lisa Myers said...

Beware! I lost all my boosters, including gold bars and lives, over night. Went to play and they had simply vanished. I had pretty close in number to what your arsenal is, all earned, no purchasing. Tried to complain for a hot minute, to no avail. Only advice I received, and use,is use them as I need them so I don't ever have to feel SO robbed. Good luck.

I remember reading that this happened to someone else so I use mine ... but I could use a few fish right now

Tintin 1 - thanks for the idea of using the tick/check mark booster. Yep. It took 4 games or so, but that was the ticket for me to finally get thru this level after several days.

Cat said...

We know this is your troll.

myrabug said...

UGH. Finally passed this level. I was seeing exploding striped balls in my sleep. Used a couple of switches but moving on at last.....

Anonymous said...

Best tip for this level. If you follow this recommendations it makes this level fun to play!

Finally passed this level using one check booster and two hand moves. Yikes!

I'm going to be on this level till my dying day. This is frustrating as all hell.

Lucky said...

Got this on my first try and it seemed so easy I wondered why it was classed as a hard level. Came here and saw that I was extremely lucky on this one and thankful I didn't have to struggle this time.

awful...tired of trying

I am beyond annoyed with this level, absolutely no pleasure in playing anymore.

GAYEST level ever! F U King! I'm uninstalling this and trying to forget that I ever even started playing this stupid game.

sprocket2 said...

Ugh! I wish I could post some magic tips for someone but this was an ugly level for me. I tried so hard to stay away from the licorice because that just set off a bunch of action at the same time. I tried using a check booster several times. Inadvertent cascades kept setting off carefully arranged stripes. On the game I finally passed I used free hand switches and lollipops (a lot! I just had so much trouble actually making stripes once all of the checks had blown themselves up) to make stripes or get them next to one another. On my very last move I paid 15 gold bars and used that paint brush to make a stripe next to one on the board. It felt like cheating. I just didn't want to start over again with 9 down. So it's over. Better luck to you, I hope :)

When you've got about 7 done, start using hand switches, I used three and finally finished this very forgettable level.

Anonymous said...

This is a toughie. 2 hours of play non stop not even close. Hope they reduce the number of stripes. Try again tomorrow.

Anonymous said...

Two more days. They keep exploding.. Closest was two. Hand switch worked then ble up with no chance. I hate giving up, try again tomorrow.

Anonymous said...

FINALLY used the paint brush twice to end my misery. Done. It's worth every nickel to be done with this one.

CCAddict said...

So surprised....5 tries..got it ! Yes open board somewhat and start making stripes asap.If you have two get them together and blast them immediately. Then make another two etc.If you have even three or four on the board they will explode themselves.Only used one hand switch because I only had two moves left. Good luck !

Anonymous said...

Thanks, excellent advice just to make the stripes as you need them.

Sunnyday said...

Got to the chest after 1657, and it wont let me open it or move on. Anyone know why?

Thanks for the tips! After too many tries, used a check mark and 5 hand switches. Laurie

Used several hand switches and finally passed this level. Wasn't fun.

Marilyn said...

Days and days on this level. Either stripes don't come soon enough, or they are too far apart to match. The ones that destroy EVERYTHING are the worst! This level is blowing my peace of mind. Not even coming close....

Well no where near passing this level. Watched the videos read the advice and no matter how many times I line up two stripes something explodes and everything cascades . It seems like this will be as far as I go.

Patti said...

Besides hating this level that I've been on for over a week, I could hate this whole game!!! If I try playing on my iPad or phone, game either won't load or shuts off.if game works on iPad then it won't load on my laptop. Contacted King, followed their suggestions and now it's worse. I don't have any problems with the other games I have on these devices. What the heck!!! Anyone else have these problems?

Anonymous said...

It's a frustrating level with sprinkles and wraps creating themselves, usually next to a striped. The first five or six matches were easily done in the first few moves, then it's a matter of working slowly to set up the rest without too many accidental explosions. Passed on fourth attempt with ten moves remaining.

Anonymous said...

I wish the stripes would quit blowing up before I can match them. Sure, it's labeled a "HARD LEVEL" but it's not hard to figure out what you're supposed to do.Just another level where they try to persuade you to buy boosters. It's a "STUPID LEVEL".

Anonymous said...

c/candycrush here

A really difficult board, I am just waiting for a bit of luck.

So far I have learnt:

*First move (or close) needs to punch a hole in the top so other candies can fall.

* Don't follow any of the 'suggested' prompts. On other levels they may help but on this one they are counter productive & just lead to massive explosions of all your specials.

* Don't be in a hurry to open the locked ones all at once. Use a couple before opening others (haha if you can, I haven't managed it all yet), otherwise you lose the lot in massive explosions.


* If you do manage to get close. Say, with only one more double to make, it would be worth using the hand to move them together-if you are sure you won't cause an explosion.

I think a check mark booster might be key here but I don't have one. What are the good levels to play to rack up sugar drops? Maybe I can get one that way. Otherwise I AM STUCK! Ugh
