Candy Crush Saga Level 1838

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1838 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
You have to collect 5 popcorns, 10 colour bombs and 15 stripes.
The stripes are pretty easy, just switch a colour bomb with a stripe and you will have most, if not all, of the stripes you need.
With luck some of the stripes will also help to grow some of the popcorn too. But the best way to grow popcorn is with wrapped candies. Get a wrap between two popcorn and it will hit them twice.
However you should be looking for colour bomb patterns as you need to make 5 of your own as well as the ones from the popcorn. The conveyor will help as it can get the fifth candy into place to make your colour bombs as well as getting the colour bomb/stripe combo together.
You can switch 2 colour bombs together to give you a hit on all the remaining popcorns if you're having trouble with growing them.

If you start with a check booster, only hit them while on the conveyor belt, otherwise it may turn into a popcorn. But the booster will help create more Choc sprinkles. Good luck!

Got it the second time around when following the tip and using a check booster. VERY useful was the advice to hit it only when on the conveyer belt as I was worried about popping up popcorns. Sweet way to beat this level. In the end I had so many colour bombs it was not funny. Not just from the check boosters, they just happened. Grace from DU

Not happy. I used the check booster but then had to use a booster to finish and it froze up on me and I didn't get to the next level.

Same, game froze with 10 moves left and only one more color bomb needed which was already on the board, very frustrating and a waste of a checked booster.

Again! game froze AFTER finishing level this time. I wonder if this only happens on Droid phone. I played without any booster this time (as that was the solution on a previous level). No fun if you finish a level and you can't move on to next one

Anonymous said...

Same here. I have completed the game twice now using the booster with lots of moves left. Each time the game froze after saying I had won. I play on Android tablet. Time to wait until the glitch is sorted to save wasting more boosters.

Same issue here passed it twice and it froze grrr fix this please

Jupa said...

Game froze THREE times in a row, just as I won and sent me back to the beginning! How long before this is fixed? Frustrating.

Anonymous said...

Mine froze too! I had collected the stripes, popcorn and chocolate sprinkles had 13 moves left and then froze!

Anonymous said...

Crashing on IPhone/IOS as well

Ok. Happened twice. Just as I finished it froze. Can't go on until it's fixed. Playing on IPad.

Anonymous said...

Right after I posted about the game freezing twice, I played again I got it with no boosters and no freezing. Maybe they fixed it or was I just lucky?

Has anyone completed this on the iPad. I keep completing the game but it keeps freezing. Is that happening on any other device ?

Susie Kinchen said...

Same on my iPad. Game abruptly closed right as I finished the level, twice. 😡

Carole Charters said...

As above twice I've completed then froze they need to fix this.

Just passed on iPad despite it previously freezing after I won. GREAT tip of using a check booster and activating only on conveyor! Worked perfectly with 9 moves to spare. Thank you!!!

Still crashing easy to pass but won't let me.

Just passed. iPad didn't freeze this time

Won twice and it crashes and doesn't show I won.

About to win and game crashed. Please fix problem.

Anonymous said...

Finished but frickin' froze on me. Help! Tired of playing this for 3 times and not working.

Anonymous said...

I completed this on my iPad mini and it froze. Refuse to waste boosters replaying this level.

Got this after quite a few tries. My tablet didn't freeze but I only had 30 moves on Android.

Passed with the checkmark, but then froze and closed on me too--playing on IPad. Will have to play sugar drop levels until they fix it, or try the PC.

Martha Allen said...

I have passed this level 8 consecutive times & at the end of the level, freezes up & goes away!!!!!! Please fix as I find this level vey easy & want to move on!!!! And please don't tell me its my iPad. Same thing happens on my PC!!!!!! & my phone. Please fix so we can move on !!!!!��

I was on my last move to winning when the game cut out on me. Lost the boosters I used and the life. Second time this has happened to me in a week. King and his games have sure gone to h3ll. How after more than 4 years do they keep coming up with these stupid glitches??!!

Anonymous said...

No, happened to me on ipad. This game is sure going down hill quickly.

JoAnn Gastin said...

Passed three times and the game crashed so have to start again. This is getting frustrating. Goodnight.

Anonymous said...

I have passed this level 3X & it froze once & just closed twice. WTH CC! Make sure levels work before releasing. I hope I wake up tomorrow & an update has been done. Don't waste your time time until.

Anonymous said...

Froze twice on my android tablet! So wasted lives and wasted boosters. I did the "contact King ". What a waste of time.

Anonymous said...

Same here....froze twice just after win. This is complete BS. I'm playing on android but it doesn't seem to matter looking at the others. Don't think I want to play until update to fix.

Connie said...

Every time I click on the 3 boosters (namely check mark) it crashes. It seems fine if you leave check mark alone, but having those luscious sprinkle bombs are addicting. Frustrating losing all the boosters. Sprinkle /wrap seems ok. Definitely a bug happened on earlier games with same scenario.

Connie said...

Just used only tick and seems not to crash.

Cher said...

There is a bad bug in this level . Passed it now twice and then it froze not good enough .C C fix it .

Lou said...

Same as all the comments above, passed level 3 times but then froze and didn't proved to next game (on iPad).. Annoyed as used my valuable hand switches too! Get this fixed King.

Cher said...

Thank you CC after posting on the blog I got through . After the 3 time of passing it easily . Makes one wonder .

Anonymous said...

I just finished it on iPad first time and using the check booster. It did not freeze. Carol the elder

Anonymous said...

Game froze on last move to win

Anonymous said...

I won this level 3X but they either froze or CC closed completely. This was on my android phone. I just played in on my PC and won and no bug. Yay! There is something definitely wrong with the program on mobile devices. Good Luck.

Unknown said...

I have completed this level 5 times now and every time it shuts down so will not let me pass. I am now very frustrated

Victoria said...

Was ready to swipe 2 choc balls to pass level, and game stopped. Very, very annoying.

julie nickl said...

Happened to me 4 times now when I was about to win.. Used boosters and lost them! So annoyed! I play on iPhone.

CC from vero said...

Great tip on the check mark! Playing on IPad and it worked first time!

Booboo said...

Same issue freezing just as won the game. I powered off my iPad, as I have done before and previously this has corrected these issues but not this time. Cannot play a game that allows you to win and then crashes when you've won. King has gone down hill so much since it was taken over. It's always sad that after takeovers many companies let their customers down and King is no exception.

Anonymous said...

this game froze for me also. I used boosters, which I will never get back.

Sage said...

Sage here. Just happened to me two times in a row. Boosters wasted because game abruptly closed and when I went back had to start over again. Wtf. Guess I'll have to wait until the level is nerfed

Sage said...

Yep. Me too.

Anonymous said...

Can't win this game on iPad. Every time I win the game it shuts down. Just wasted four lives on this game . Needs to be fixed.

Anonymous said...

Hi all crushers,
I have emailed king and reported this problem that we are all having, it hasn't been resolved yet. they are still working on it.

Anonymous said...

Playing on Android. Used the sprinkle and check mark boosters at the start. Won the game, but it crashed. Going to try again with just the check mark. Frustrating and annoying.

Anonymous said...

Well my next game just using the check mark booster, it gave me one at the start, then nothing until maybe 10 moves from the end! The following game, I got a whole bunch of them, finished the game, and got sugar crush with no crash!

Debbie B said...

I have now wasted all4 of my checkmark boosters! Passed the level each time, only to have the game crash before giving me credit for passing!!! I think King is doing this on purpose. BTW, I played on both Android and my IPad. Getting sick of feeling like King is intentionally making me fail.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the tips. I used the check booster and completed the level. However, my screen went black and did not advance me (iPad). Seems like this is still a (frustrating) issue :-(

Anonymous said...

So I'm not the only one! Played twice on iPad with check booster, won, then screen flicked to main page with no credit. Thanks all for posting before I got any crazier!

Michelle Fink said...

Same here. Used the check mark booster and it worked like a charm. Finished and then the game crashed. I am going to try one more time and if it happens again I am going to give it up until they fix the glitch.

Michelle Fink said...

Happened again. This time mid-game. That's it for me...will be back when it's fixed.

Alison said...

Twice I've completed this level and crashed on both occasions at end not recognising it, had used boosters both time as well grrrrr

Anonymous said...

Finally got through! Used ONLY stripe/wrap booster to open. I think the glitch is using the check booster and or swapping color bombs. I play on iPad.

Michelle Fink said...

I think so too. Decoded to go back and try it again with no boosters. Got it after a few tries and it didn't crash.

Anonymous said...

Crashed on my iPhone right when I switched last color bomb to complete the level, still had 3 moves left. The game reloaded minus one life and didn't credit me for completing the level.

Julie d said...

Game crashing on me too,,just won using a booster then it crashed before I moved on. Not happy. iPad .

Anonymous said...

Same here passed twice now on phone and git that stupid annoying 'unfortunately the game has stopped' really annoying second time I won with 20 moves to spare

Julie d said...

still crashing. Have beaten it several times now but can't move on. Getting very annoying.

Julie d said...

Also crashing without using boosters so don't waste any more folks, there is obviously a major issue here. Hope it gets sorted soon. On to other games until they do.

Julie d said...

Rebooting device as suggested by King does not work either.

Julie d said...

Passed today using boosters.assuming it's been fixed now.

Anonymous said...

It has not been fixed! Just played 3 times on iPad using boosters & when I'm about to win it crashes. I think it's an ON Purpose glitch!!!

Cathy said...

I think the glitch may be using the check booster and or switching color bombs. I used ONLY the stripe/wrap booster. Many checks came out which were mostly color bombs. I resisted switching them, and finally passed. I play on iPad.

CCAddict said...

Possible without boosters....8 tries...Done !

Anonymous said...

I was just about to come on here and tell you to use a check mark. I did and every one turned into a sprinkle ball which is the hardest thing to get. I got the last sprinkle ball and it was using up the moves when it froze. I've never had a game freeze before. Bummer because now I have to do it again and hope I'm lucky enough to pass a second time. Not fair King.

Anonymous said...

And it froze a second time when I won. Not wasting any more boosters. If it's going to keep doing that. Bummer.

Anonymous said...

I used all my boosters this time but I did not swipe two sprinkles together and I passed without freezing. I wonder if that is the glitch rather than the checkmark booster? But I also did a hard reset before I started playing again. Whatever it worked this time.

Anonymous said...

Thank God, a nice old fashioned level that is fun and looks ultimately do-able. I think I'll stay here for a while and enjoy it. Beyond this I fear there be dragons.
