Candy Crush Saga Level 1898

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1898 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
You need to score 400,000 points to get one star on level 1898! Double that for 3 stars.
Since there are only 30 moves to score this you are going to have to make some pretty powerful colour bomb combos and use the bombs whenever possible.
A colour bomb on a countdown bomb is the best move for high scores, even better than colour bomb/stripe or wrap.
In fact you should avoid using a colour bomb on a stripe or wrap as it will change the bombs into stripes or wraps and you won't get anywhere near the score you will from a simple colour bomb on countdown bomb.
Get the bombs into play as soon as possible by using vertical stripes or stripe/wrap combos to clear the blockers along the top. Once the bombs are free make colour bombs and switch with them as much as you can.
Take your time and look carefully at those bombs to see if you can use them to make specials as it can be hard to see the patterns sometimes when the candies are bombs.

  1. Thanks for the tips; it worked! When I first tried a few times I tried avoiding the bombs to come down. But after reading your tips I just went for it and used the colour bombs on single colours. I could not get a colour bomb on colour bomb but still ended up with 530.000+.

  2. Thanks for the hint - got the bombs exposed then used a couple color bombs on single colors.

  3. Been on this 3 days and the most I have scored is 290000. Even by getting to the bombs as soon as possible this doesn't seem doable.

    Lucky board needed I guess

  4. It's ridiculous! Closest was 200,000 not enough bombs falling!
    Beginning to hate candy crush - time to go to work!!

    1. You are right video shows lots of bombs so wonder they passed. Very few bombs on mine

  5. I've been on it for 4 days. Several times I've had a cleared board and make matches near the top for several moves and NO bombs fall! Never had more than 250K

    1. Same here--NO bombs! What a joke this game is.

  6. Thanks for the tips, Cookie. Couldn't do some of these levels without them. The first time I played this level, I got 350,000 points by just making color bombs and using them on the same color of the timed bombs. The second time I used a color bomb on a wrap and got less than 50,000 points for the whole game. Then when you confirmed this would happen, it made the game seem easy to just make color bombs (when the board finally opened up after two or three tries) and use them on one of the same colors as the timed bombs.
    Each hit generated nearly 100,000 points.

    Good tip but not so easy to make those combos . Used a bunch of hand switches and extra move ! Just a question if anyone can answer??
    Do you have to hit actual countdown bomb or just the color?
    I found hitting just the color of the bomb didn't get many points - thus all the hand switches.

    Finished, but just curious

    Thx

  9. I finished this on the first try without first reading Cookie's tips or the comments. I just concentrated on making color bombs using 2 hand switches. Luckily, 2 other color bombs came along for me to get enough points to pass it.

  11. Great tips, thanks! I used a couple of hand switches to get a regular color that was a bomb elsewhere on the board next to a sprinkle. I got lots of points by hitting a color that had two or more of the same color bombs. Carol the elder

  12. Thanks Cookie. Her secret is you have to use sprinkle balls to knock out a color with bombs of the same color. Use hand switches to make sprinkle balls.

  13. Having a difficult time getting more bombs to appear on the board. Seems like only one at a time. Any suggestions.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Thanks for the tips. Would be stuck for ever if it wasn't for this blog.

  15. Can't pass this..been stuck on it for 3 days, posting for luck.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Same as all the recent boards...play until they let you pass. The obvious slot machine aspect of this game is becoming more and more obvious with every episode. Very very little skilled involved anymore

    ReplyDelete
  17. Pretty damn depressing when you look down at your score after making those color bomb combos and your no where near 400000 points.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Same as others have had in other levels. Opened with a three-candy match, only to have it say no matches and game over in first move.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Finally !!!! with 612000 points. Keep trying to make sprinkles but don't save them to go off at the end. When you get one, hit the candies with the most of that colour on the board..
    Good luck !!!

  20. Good tips but I'm not getting color bomb opportunities and if I do its later and there are no bombs left. Got to 260k once in two days of play. Bring on the lucky board!!!

  22. Just like most people here I'm not getting enough bombs too drop. The closest I have come is 300.000. Not sure how other have passed this level? I'm also not sure why I continue too play this crap game....πŸ€”πŸ˜’

  23. What a bull shit level King. I get to 364,000 + points and even though I'm logged in, it says failed to contact the play store. I don't think you want me to finish this level just like nobody I know has ever gotten the jackpot on the daily wheel.

    1. I'm stuck on this level and reading for tips. I got the jackpot on the daily wheel last year �� Rach

  24. Grr! I was stuck on this level for ever before I came here and read the advice. You don't even need a lot of bombs to make it through. Once you've opened up the board enough to make a color bomb try to save it until there is at least one bomb on the board with several other candies of the same color. Combining your color bomb with one of the matching candies will get you over 100,000 points. If you can get a couple of bombs on the board of the same color as your color bomb you'll get a whole lot more points. I only got one star but I was able to finally pass this within 5 or 6 times of reading Ms Cookie's advice.

  25. Yet again I suspect this has to be played on the pc. Takes ages to open up the top for the bombs,during which time there's not enough space to make combos. If you manage to open it up, hardly any bombs. Boosters are useless on such a restricted board. Posting for luck.

  26. Update : I was right. After posting,I played on the pc. Using the above tips I passed first time with 3 stars. It's about time these levels were made equal for all devices

  28. Thank you for advice on hitting time bomb colours with colour bombs, had been aiming for bombs/stripes/wraps with no luck, got through on second try opening up the board and aiming for colour bombs and single colours with time bombs. Always follow advice on here πŸ˜€

  29. looks like this is going to be yet another sucky episode. I am NOT loving this episode at all. Have hated every level so far

    ReplyDelete
  30. I sometimes don't get any color bombs - getting bored with this level! Hoping for a lucky board.

    ReplyDelete
  31. It sure pays to read the tips...after days of trying and finally reading the tips I mixed a color bomb with a timed bomb using a switch to get in position and scored enough points to end this level...thanks everyone!!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. What should we do without you??? Thanks so much, i never would have come up with using the bombs.

    ReplyDelete
  33. To Debra Terrill: I have been lucky enough to get the jackpot on the daily wheel 3 times. It does happen. I've been playing since the wheel started. Good luck.

  34. You cannot win on a mobile device. I was only able to do it on a PC where bombs are plentiful. Good luck.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Horrible level. When you actually need bombs there is bugger all. Or if you do get them theres no colour bombs. Ridiculous level :(

    ReplyDelete
  36. After playing this on my iPad for several days with no success I tried it on my PC and first try scored 511,020. Amazing how there were tons of bombs and several color bombs coming down.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I start the day with 5 lives on the iPad and I'm lucky if I get to play one of the five lives without the game crashing! Not much hope I'm afraid

    After a couple lame tries on iPad, came to my iMac and got 5 sprinkles in a row by themselves, and made 2 others. Finished with 823,900.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I tried for several days with no luck even after reading the tips here because I still wasn't clear on what to do. The trick is to switch a sprinkle ball with an actual bomb, even if you don't have many of that color bomb on the board. After that, it was simple. Good luck. - aps

  40. Having a tough time on this one.

  41. Been on this one way too long. Getting bored now πŸ˜•

    ReplyDelete
  42. Have followed the tips, but still can't achieve the required points. Ugh!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Its all about colour bombs. Its worth sacrificing making stripes/wraps to concentrate on colour bombs. Then fire them off straight away with a colour. This increases your chance of creating another one. Ideally you'll swap with a time bomb, but don't waste moves trying to force it.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Yeah thank you, level 1898 completed 1st try after reading this. You made it sooooo easy 😊

    ReplyDelete
  45. Waiting, waiting, waiting for a lucky board like on the video

    ReplyDelete
  46. Over 1,000,000 on 2nd try. Sprinkles and cascades just kept forming. Just a lucky board, I guess....

    ReplyDelete
  47. I just finished this one on my 2nd try on my Android phone. It was a lot of fun because the cascades kept happening and the colour bombs kept forming, BUT I think it had a glitch? I hit the required # of points with 13 moves left, but instead of ending with a striped candy forming with each leftover move, the game required me to keep going until I used up all of my moves. I hit 1.95 million points at the end - 4x more points than any of my friends did at the same level...Not complaining judging from the problems others seem to be having on this level, but weird.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Think King must have changed this as got 2 million first try and candy bombs just kept coming!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I agree with above, first try and I was over a million with 19 moves left... you have to play out all the moves so don't let a bomb catch you as you will lose even with a million points.

    ReplyDelete
  50. After opening up the board, the trick isn't so much getting enough points as making sure the bombs don't explode before you've used up your moves. I think King must have changed this looking at earlier comments. The best tip is using sprinkles with bomb or bomb color.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I think King must have made this easier. I got over 4,669,000 points. Just had to focus on not letting the bombs go off but I always had color bombs on the board to take out the bombs as they got low.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Amazing, but it can happen. Got it first go, with 17 moves left. Colour sprinkles kept falling and cascading went wild. Ended up with a score of just under 23,000,000! It was either that I hit a one-in-a-million combination, or there was a glitch in my favour!

    ReplyDelete
  53. When I saw it had to get 400000 I groaned as these usually take me ages. But hurrah got it first go with 17 moves left! I just got rid of bombs as they fell and final score was 1920860!
    I'm sure King has made a mistake with this level but I don't care it was nice having an easy one for a change.

  54. Used all my boosters on 1897, succeeded, just! Thought, I hate this game, then addiction took over, thought I'd just try 1898 once and quit forever. Oh my goodness, no evil spawners, no disgusting creeping chocolate, just sweet cascades full of choc sprinkles, wraps, stripes, plus sugar drops galore. Got 1573280 points, without even trying. Maybe the makers mucked up, but I don't care, bring on the next game. I'm hooked again.

    ReplyDelete
  55. OMG, they must have dumbed it down for I got almost 4 million and 3 stars, and hardly did anything. What a thing of beauty!!Just careful I didn't let any bombs explode. Yay; thanks for advice!!
