Candy Crush Saga Level 1788

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1788 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Although level 1788 is not classified as a hard level it can be quite tricky to clear because of the shape of the board and the blockers.
Your moves are very restricted to begin with so you will have to take what you can get but you should try to make moves as close to the bottom as you can.
There are only 22 moves so barely enough even with good combos. you really can't afford to waste a single move.
Use the colour bomb wisely, if you can get a stripe or wrap next to it you will do a lot of damage, on it's own it doesn't really do a lot except boost your score.
The squares between the holes are the hardest to hit so take any opportunity to hit them.
If you are struggling with level 1788 you may find a fish booster helpful, or a colour bomb.

Just for the record, 1788 IS classified as a Hard Level, not that it makes any difference.

Opened up with the chocolate bomb and green stripe, had mostly green candies on board. It was great, all but 17 jellies left. Do you think I could get the rest? No way! 22 moves for this level is ridiculous.

Agreed. Too few moves. I've had a couple "lucky" boards and gotten them down to four jellies.

Terrible. Again I'm just making what few combos I'm allowed and waiting for them to hand me the king of lucky boards to do this within the ridiculous number of moves they give us.

I used a striped/wrapped and fish boosters. I reset until the wrapped candy (more effective that the striped) is adjacent to the color bomb provided. The wrapped candies' explosions cleared a lot of blockers and jellies while the fishes picked off the others. I cleared the last jelly at the very last move.

In these tight spaces using the wrap next to the color bomb is the way to go. Had to use a hammer for last jelly but done!

First try, wonderful board. The choc sprinkle was sitting on top of colours that made another choc sprinkle, combined the 2 and bingo. Board continued to throw up more chocolate sprinkles so I have no useful advice other than to say hang in there. Been an interesting episode.

In addition to agreeing with all of your prior comments, I found that the iOS version is even harder: You DON'T get a sprinkle bomb at the start, and instead of vertical striped candies under the center column squares, you can get a surprise candy that can turn into chocolate, licorice, popcorn, or even better, a sprinkle bomb you can't ignite!
On the FB version, I did try starting with a sprinkle bomb and thought I had it nailed when it opened up next to the other bomb. But after that, I was given no chance to make combos and finished with 7 jellies left.
Looks like I might be here a while...

Impossible to clear without lucky board

This level is gonna mske me cuss yall. I tried starting with a wrap and stripe. Kept backing out until I got the bomb and a blue wrap together with plenty of blue candies on the board. That did s lot of clearing but with so few moves it was a waste of a booster. We're not rookies we made it this far past some insane levels on the way I think this one is kings plan to get some money. But it ain't going to happen they aint suckin no fundage outta this crusher. I'm going to beat this evil devil spawn level without giving up any money.

I had double colour bomb and some other good combos and STILL did not get it. Indeed, not enough moves. This is a dumb level. I am going to take a break again as I don't find it fun anymore. Grace from DU

Lucky board, lucky board ... where are you? I've been playing this level a hundred times with or without boosters and no luck. Geting bored with this no skill/strategy level but I don't want to quit .... yet ...

Anonymous said...

Same here. Agree, not enough moves!

Time to quit. Bloody joke of a level. Lowest i got was 10 left.

Day 3 on this level with no boosters to help me out and I was starting to think it might be the end for me! The first move of the game I noticed I could make a square red candy which would land by the sprinkle ball. Before I hit them together I carefully made a few more mores around the board to bring down more red candies. By doing that I managed to clear most of the board but by the last turn I had 2 more to clear with only 1 hammer. Fortunately I had enough bars that the game has given me to buy those extra five turns which I only needed 2 of but didn't have to use my hammer! This level is impossible unless you have extra moves or boosters to help.....have never said this about previous levels!

RdG How do you do a reset???

After about 30 tries got lucky board finished without boosters and 4 moves left, not impossible so don't give up

I'm just saying I've tried this level for a week and then today it has 3 extra moves and less hits to clear so finally got it��

I just wasted 4 boosters on this level after trying unsuccessfully to pass it for two days. After reading the tips here I started with a stripe/wrap combo. Then I used 2hammers to get the wrap next to the color bomb, and used the tip of getting more green candies (the color of my wrap) on the board. Combined the color bomb with the wrap and it worked like a charm. With one move left I still had one jelly so I used another hammer to finish this dreadful level, and the board froze on me. What a waste.

Another horrible and boring level...no fun anymore...help...

Instead of saying "hard level", CC should change this one to "extremely boring level".

Absolutely awful level.Stuck on it for a week only passed with the purchase of hammers and a bit of luck earlier with some sprinkles.

I feel like an alcoholic or addict who keeps drinking or using long after the enjoyment has gone out of it. This game has become a bad addiction for me. I need to stop it. These recent levels take any enjoyment that there was in it out of it and it is becoming painful. Just quit it everyone including myself.

Stupid level! I used an extra sprinkle and guess where it shows up on the board, right in a middle square near nothing to possibly use it! I should be able to get that sprinkle back damn it!

Back for a 3rd time just to bitch and say this level is reeeally pissing me off!!!!

I used a chocolate sprinkle ball with a wrapped blew up the whole screen except about 10 with about 10 moves remaining and still couldn't get close. This level is very very frustrating Good luck all

Making it this far and through some very tough levels I have to say I'm incredibly disappointed in this level. It is impossible and boring and it wasted WAY WAY too many of my boosters! I'm calling it quits for a little while, I may return but for now I have lost interest with this level

Anonymous said...

I used a colour bomb and fish but probably a lot of luck too. Agree with all the comments above, CC becoming boring , may have to go...shame after all this time.

Something strange just happened. Having seen these comments and tried 1788 a few times I decided to play earlier rounds to build up some boosters. Thought I would have another go with last life and I got a really good board but with no sprinkle candy. I still needed to use one hand switch and a hammer for the last tile but completed with last move.
Have King changed the game?

Anonymous said...

Yes, it has been updated. No color bomb, but much easier to make combos. Finished third try after the update after struggling for days.

On an iPhone, you can quit the game before you make any moves without losing a life.

2nd try. A fish booster could be your best friend.

Fun level though I did usually have two or three jellies to collect and eventually used the fish booster.
