Candy Crush Saga Level 1748

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1748 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Get 90,000 points in 30 moves.
The biggest problem with this level is the bombs, they have to be destroyed or it's game over.
Try to make moves that will hit the cream blockers at least twice with one move so you get through them quicker.
If you can make a sideways stripe and let it drop through into the bottom that will remove one row of bombs, a stripe/wrap combo will get them all, but this is a difficult combo to get into the bottom.
Stripe/wrap combos are possibly the best combo for clearing as well as for points.
The only way to get a colour bomb is in a vertical line down the middle of each side, but you need a bit of luck for that.
Starting the level with either a colour bomb or stripe/wrap booster will help.

As I have said before, I don't mind a hard board....but this is ridiculous. This one is completely impossible. End of story. 15 moves to clear two 4-layer creams, and then get rid of all of those bombs? I can't imagine a board lucky enough to make this happen. Good luck everyone.

Unfortunately you have to get a sufficient number of points, AND clear all the bombs to complete this level. I have had a couple of games where I scored well over 95,000 points (217,200 in one case), but was unable to clear all the bombs. I have had several games where I cleared all the bombs, but could not run the score up enough.

.....and I passed this nightmare. (I was the first commenter.) I got a VERY lucky board, the jellies basically blew themselves up quickly, and a chocolate ball appeared out of nowhere. Still had to use 1 hammer to get rid of the last bomb. Points were no problem, had over 200000 quickly, just played out the last 15 moves.

yet another boring level. in desperation i started with a colour bomb. this gives the necessary points. hammered the unexploded bombs and finished with a huge score.

I feel they make these crazy impossible levels so that we don't reach the next patch before they make it. This is an absurd level. When I'm able to take out the bombs, the score doesn't reach high enough. Other times, the score's high but the bombs explode. Stupid shit

It turns me off completely! They just want our $$$, its clear!

You have to start with a colour bomb booster. If not you'll have to make about 5 colour bombs in game (which is near impossible).

Match the booster to a bomb colour and you instantly have the points to pass the level. You still need to get through the cream and deal with the bombs but at least you'll always be on the points.

A very clever level from King in terms of extracting cash from players. Without the booster your pretty much f****d. With the booster you'll get there in the end, but it will take lives and probably use all your boosters - therefore you buy more. Clever in the respect that some will buy boosters, but not so clever in the respect that some (myself included) will decide that if this is the way future levels are going to work, then the game isn't worth playing any more. I've got 5 boosters left, after that I'll try the daily wheel etc for a few days and if no luck then its goodbye from me.

I really don't understand why people spend money on CC. I am on this level without every spending a penny. I play on my PC, Phone, and Kindle. The phone and Kindle are always behind with the levels so I am mostly on the PC. I will open 5-6 tabs so when I run out of my five lives I still have one on the other tabs. The other tabs will say 5 but you only get one, by the time you use those tabs, you will have another life on the first one. Don't make them any richer than they are. Even the hard levels you know they will eventually give you a lucky board. Keep crushin for free.

Anonymous said...

Agree msnega, I've never spent a dime and I don't ever intend to. Since I passed the last level, anything is possible - lol. I forgot about opening other tabs, thanks for the reminder.

Have a feeling will be here for a long time. I just relax and play the game and if I succeed will be delighted but if I fail wont be too worried. So am just playing the game and just chilling out. Nice to know Cookie Jam levels are due today though they are my saviour.

Yes, I've figured out that to make any kind of progress with level 1748, you need to start off with a sprinkled bomb. I've come close, but never made enough points. Now I have no more sprinkled bombs (I only had 3 left), so it looks like I am doomed. I have come this far w/o spending any money. I'm not about to start now. This may have been my last level. 1748 stinks gorilla balls...

Sprinkle bomb did nothing to help. Maybe it will be a little easier on mobile when it comes out, because it is impossible on laptop. Been playing for 2 days and haven't gotten close even once. Another miracle lucky board required. King is getting lazy putting out such crappy boards that they have given us lately.

One of those levels where you don't stand a chance without boosters or the elusive lucky board. No skill involved what so ever, just one useless move after another. Really boring as it is obvious after the first couple of moves that you don't stand a chance. Where has the fun gone King? Really tiresome when you design a level that is this boring. Seems to me you are running out of ideas as it is one tedious level after another at the moment. YAWN!

Thanks for that info

Two wrapped striped candy did the trick. Very difficult but can be done.

First of all I would say this level is impossible without boosters and with boosters almost impossible. So I tried starting off with a color bomb/striped combo ..no luck. And then a color bomb/wrapped combo..no luck. I would cleat the bombs but not enough points. So then I used both boosters but I matched the color bomb with just a regular color making sure it matched some of the bomb colors. First move over 100,000 pts. And then I was able to use a switch booster that caused a reshuffle. .and all the remaining bombs went to the top making it a lot easier

CC from vero said...

Great tip! Color bomb absolutely needed

Kat herin said...

It's not impossible! Same old whinging people who can't do it straight away so get frustrated! If candy crush was so easy we wouldn't play it!!!

Cat said...

Sorry for those suffering, and I'm posting to give hope.

On iPad, choc ball matched with stripe (both from boosters) worked like a charm. Spawner wasn't knocked out until close to the end. Didn't matter. Good luck.

Van5 said...

Started with a chocolate ball and a stripe/wrap combo. (I have over 100 of each from the sugar drops). Used the chocolate ball to take out a single colour and then the stripe/wrap to get through the blockers. Had over 100,000 just from that with 15 moves left. Played it out and ended up with 3 stars. Figured I'd be here forever, but starting with those two did the trick. Good luck everyone!

Anonymous said...

Kat herin it is rude to come on here and call posters whiners when they are most likely posting after days playing out of sheer frustration at not being able to pass the level. It helps to see others are going through the same thing.

Doreen Price said...

Got the score but didn't past level it don't say you have to get the bombs as well boring I'm off bye

Anonymous said...

Just posting for luck. I've used nearly all my sprinkle balls to no avail. I don't understand the comment about matching one with a stripe and instantly getting enough points. I've done it twice and got nowhere near enough.

Anonymous said...

Yes, start with color bomb. Even better may be to start with color bomb and stripe/ wrap and reset until color bomb and stripe are next to each other. JS

Anonymous said...

Posted for luck and won the very next game. Works like a charm most of the time. Don't worry about the spawner. It doesn't cause much trouble. You do need to start with a sprinkle ball though and match it with a booster at the beginning. Then all you need to concentrate on are the bombs. Good luck.

This game is awful. I paid for extra moves because I had 50 points to go and then the wheel froze up on me again. Now I have no boosters left. I am ready to just give this game up. Words with friends is so much better than this one. You need at least some skill with words and not just luck.

Match color bomb with a regular color not with a stripe or wrapped. Just make sure that there are lots of that particular color and that it matches some of the time bombs. This should give you enough points. The hard part may be clearing the other time bombs

Anonymous said...

The bombs on my cell have 15 count down. But on my pc they give me 20. Big big difference. Awful level ��

Anonymous said...

Horrible! Starting with both boosters. I've reset to get either sprinkle/wrap or sprinkle/stripe for my first move, which gets me 50k+ points, but then I can't get enough specials in the rest of the moves to get the 90k points needed - I'm usually about 5k short. Posting here for luck!

Doreen Price said...

Still trying but no luck used all my boosters tried buying extra live but won't let me need lucky board please

Anonymous said...

Tried starting with sprinkle and stripe/wrap boosters, resetting till the sprinkle was next to one or the other so I got rid of the bombs in the first move, but could never get enough points (you need to hit the bombs, not transform them.) Tried sprinkle booster only, matching with one bomb color; got the points, but the remaining bombs killed me. Finally tried no boosters as I had wasted so many. Got my lucky board with a few stripe/wraps (one in just the right place as the bombs reached 1. Phew!) Couldn't even break the left blocker till 7 moves remaining. Finished with 3 stars.

GOGO said...

used two hammers and two switches not enough points so bought extra time once figured .99 cents was worth it. Finished the level one star and off to the next. Could have been here for days... ah well CC needs a buck here and there. I got the basked after that with tons of boosters so fair trade I guess:)

Iusually read the hints on here and take a long time to get it! I have had real problems with some of the later timed levels, but I honestly got this level on the 1st try! I found that I had 3 stars and 305,000 points with lots of moves left. I had to check back on here to see if i had missed what was required of the level!!!

Anonymous said...

Very lucky. Tried it a few times (3) and was getting ready for a long run. Then I tried one colour bomb to begin with and from there on it went well. Could not believe my luck when a striped one took out the last two bombs which were still blocked off. Ended up with 267820 points. very grateful! Grace from DU (have also never spent money to get boosters)

carlton said...

Good news for those who have yet to pass this level. It has been buffed proving that the earlier version was impossible without boosters. At least on the android version the bombs are now 20 moves not 15 and it flows a lot smoother. I was able to make a bunch of striped/wrapped combos. Without absolutely no boosters I got a 105,000.So maybe King does listen

Anonymous said...

Using the chocolate ball worked! Couldn't believe how quickly the points grew. Then I got lucky with a color wrap that took care of the bombs. Thanks for the tip.

Lizzy G said...

I cleared the bombs many times but could never get near the points, I used one chocolate ball swapped it with a bomb colour and got it first time.

Anonymous said...

Great idea to match sprinkle with a bomb. Has to do a few switches to clear bombs before time ran out on them. Thanks for the tip.

Anonymous said...

This one is a nightmare!

Anonymous said...

Finally cleared this one after using all of my boosters on previous tries. Completed this level with luck and no boosters. When I used boosters I could finish the level but I never had enough points. The key I found is to make a striped & candy combo. That did the trick for the points. Good luck all! You can beat this level!!

Tou52 said...

Yup, here's another level that makes me wonder why I started playing this game in the first place. Guess I'll just give it a few daily tries waiting for the lucky board. I certainly won't wastey collected boosters for nothing. Hope I will be able to get it over and done with before autumn arrives ☺

Anonymous said...

I did it using a speckled bomb with a wrapped combo. This eliminates all of the bombs in the first move. Then you can focus on making special candies and combinations to get the needed points. Took me a few tries.

Lynn in Texas said...

To anonymous who suggested to start with a color bomb and strip/wrap if you have them.. THANK YOU! Finally got past the stupid bombs and made the score. Love this page!

dancinggirl said...

Must have been lucky - completed it on my third try without any boosters.

Anonymous said...

You gotta be kidding this is impossible. Can't even get close to the points needed. One of those level you just have to wait for that lucky board. Bloody getting board waiting tho ��

Anonymous said...

My post above. Well i took the advise of starting with a coloured booster and hitting it with the same colour as one of the bombs and passed. Thankyou.

Livia Saunders said...

Crazy hard level. These bombs! I'm going to try the wrap sprinkle as suggested

It's true about the color bomb to start. This is really one of the more stupid senseless levels. Glad it's over.

Have had way over 90,000 several times all bombs gone but will not give me game

Anonymous said...

I've used just about all my boosters trying to get enough points, but no luck. Need a lucky board, I guess and alittle help. So CC I need a lucky board!! Thank you!

I was expecting this to be a nightmare after reading the comments and my first game being a disaster because it took ages to break through to the bottom of the board. Second attempt I managed to break through on one side very quickly and destroy some of the bombs. A sprinkle formed and that wiped out quite a few more. It didn't take long to open the other side. With ten moves left I used a hammer to get rid of the final bomb and finished with 232k points and three stars.
