Candy Crush Saga Level 1981 tips and video updated

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1981 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 1981 is classified as a hard level so you can expect to lose a few moves before you manage to pass it.
Level 1981 is a fairly straightforward jelly level, the problem is there are only 20 moves to unlock all the locked candies and clear the jelly.
Once the board settles you should have a stripe or wrap to begin with, use this to work your way down through the blockers so you have more space to make combos. Matches of 3 won't be enough to clear this level so you need to be looking at the whole board to make specials and combos.
If you want to make this level a bit easier you can use a colour bomb booster or a jelly fish booster.

  3. The mobile version has only 20 moves, not 28, and most of the candies on the left side and bottom are in marmalade compared with the PC version. What I did due to the limited moves was to start with a color bomb and striped/wrapped booster. There are only 4 places for them to begin with and that is in the middle, so the chance the the color bomb is either with the striped or wrapped candy is almost assured. I tried the color bomb/stripe combo but it left a few jellies. The color bomb/wrapped combo did it for me.

  7. I also used a Chocolate sprinkle/stripe/wrap combo and also a fish. Reset til the sprinkle was next to the wrap. Finished with 10 moves left.

  9. Impossible to beat this level on mobile with only 20 moves and lots of marmalade without boosters.....grrr

  10. Differences between the mobile version and the pc seem to be happening with more frequency. The iPad version of this game is completely different with cellophane wrapped candies down the left side and only 20 moves. Why the difference? Winning on iPad with 28 moves would be a more realistic expectation with the 28 moves available to pc users.

  11. I take that back- posting brought me a lucky board, 3 stars no boosters! So it is possible with 20 moves but have to wait for the lucky board

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'll just have to wait for that Lucky board once again . Sure is impossible on iPad. Seems like lucky boards are the only way now. No skill needed at all . Just not enough moves .

  13. The PC version now has only 20 moves and marmalade. I have a phone, tablet and the PC and no stripe/wrapped boosters, which is what it's going to take.

  14. My Windows laptop also has only 20 moves!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I reckon this level is pretty well impossible with just 20 moves. After two days of playing, have only ever managed to clear about half the board.

    ReplyDelete
  16. This is another level 1969. I was on it for about 7 days, the longest I've ever spent on one level. Not enough moves.

    ReplyDelete
  17. only 20 moves on pc needs correcting

    ReplyDelete
  18. This is definitely a play it on your laptop level. Multiple tries on my Android without success passed it first time playing on my PC

    ReplyDelete
  19. And again. Android users penalized again. Only 20 moves. Bloody impossible. Need more moves. No wonder the video gets it. They have 28 moves. Bloody hell this annoys the shit out of me :(

    ReplyDelete
  20. Thanks for the tips! Colour bomb + stripped (the game opens up with them next to each other)
    Finished it first try with this combo, with 4 moves to spare.
    THANKS! :)

  21. Only 20 moves on PC, more rubbish, come on King this game shouldnt be about luck!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. More lucky board bullshit! No where near enough moves

    ReplyDelete
  23. Been on this level a few days, not enough to moves...seems impossible to find ish....ugh!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow, Just posted and got it on the game!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Mobile users got penalised once again

    ReplyDelete
  26. On android. Started with all boosters. Sprinkle was next to wrap, which cleared a lot. Was able to clear most of the board easily. Last 2 jellies were a bit harder, but got them with 3 moves remaining.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Took a lot of tries, but I got it with no boosters (since I'm out of boosters). Just have to keep working for special combos and hoping for killer cascades, which do happen sometimes.

  28. Don't worry - PC players now have only 20 moves as well, so we're all equal again.

    ReplyDelete
  29. About time this page started showing videos with the same amount of moves that are actually there. Both PC and Mobile only 20 moves. What's the point of this blog if the tips don't relate to the real level

    ReplyDelete
  30. Made a wrap candy out of the candy that had the most amount and combined it with a bomb. It that took out most of the jelly. Had enough moves left to take out the remaining few. It was still hard to make this combo but with luck, I'm done with this horrible level!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Took 33 minutes had 2 hours free play, kept resetting board after just a few moves, till I got a good one that opened up, oh ya, used speckled ball towards end....read tips here 1st, passed on iPad , 20 moves.....whew!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Using laptop and tablet getting nowhere close, 20 jelly left is my best. This could be a long slog....

  33. Wow straight after posting I passed! Two sprinkles together cleared most of the board...then I won 5 extra moves on the tablet and had a sprinkle land next to a wrap. Now that is what you call luck!

  34. Didn't have much luck on the PC or my phone. Decided to have a go on the kindle and passed 1st time (used a colour bomb/wrap as my 1st move.

    ReplyDelete
  35. This level has now been upgraded to a Hard level ,with 20 moves and not the 28 shown on the video , it's actually a really good level the kind I like ,but I expect I will be kept here for a few days because I don't purchase boosters .

    ReplyDelete
  36. Projela jsem s 18 tahy hurá :-)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Only 20 moves on iPad...When will this be corrected?

    ReplyDelete
  38. I just don't understand why KING can't make the number of moves you are given...regardless of the device you play on. Only 20 moves on Ipad!

    ReplyDelete
  39. 2 wraps together blew up half the board, 2 more almost finished it off, leaving an easy finish

    ReplyDelete
  40. Bull again! I need a new game, this is getting more frustrating than fun!

    ReplyDelete
  41. This level is impossible with 20 moves and the right side of the board encased! I have been stuck forever. Grrrrrrr!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Only 20 moves on the PC too. I was stuck here for two days. Many games the first few matches were just three of a kind in places where the next move was the same. One game the board was still shuffling with one move left! Sprinkle/wraps did some damage but never enough. In the final attempt a wrap/wrap combo started it off. Sprinkle followed sprinkle and suddenly the board kept exploding until there were only two jellies to get. 540k and three stars.

  43. With only 20 moves, nearly impossible. Been on this level a very long time.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Only getting 2/3 of the board accomplished. No solution in sight. Need very lucky board.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Only 20 moves on iPad. Hard to clear more than half the board.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Just watched video with 28 , not 20 moves. Such a lucky board. Waiting for mine.

  48. The waiting game again....

    ReplyDelete
  49. Need a lucky board!!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Still waiting on a lucky board. Not wasting anymore boosters.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I've come to the conclusion that with only 20 moves I will never pass this level. So now I just try to end up with less every time. I've gotten down to 3. When it gets too boring, and after 10 days of trying it does get boring, I just play something else.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Never going to pass this level with only 20 moves. It's ridiculous. Hey Ms Cookie, why don't you show us how clever you are and do it with 20 moves instead of 28?

    ReplyDelete
  53. I can't believe you only get 20 moves on the iPad, is this a punishment for using one? Really not fair to all of us that have come this far in the game. Makes me want to stop playing.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Am I the only one who reads all the comments?? It is 20 moves for everyone now!! Ms. Cookie can't help that they change it and if she changed the video and did it with 20 moves would that help anyone pass? I doubt it.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Started with all 3 boosters on PC so couldn't reset but with such few spaces open the sprinkle and wrap were together... blew up the board pretty good!! From there it was easy to do clean up and the fish got the rest and to my utter amazement I had 10 moves left!! Definitely pays to start with sprinkle stripe/wrap.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Really riidicious not enough moves to open board

    ReplyDelete
  57. Have just arrived at this level and for the first time in several years playing CC, I see this has been rated a "SUPER HARD LEVEL".
    Just great, 😫

    ReplyDelete
  58. You can do it! Start with a wrap/stripe and it will all fall into place. Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Has there ever been a response from the programmers of Candy Crush as to,why there are differing versions, dependent upon what device one plays the game...? If there was a quality reason for it, then many players would understand the reasoning behind it. Level 1981 is just a dumb idea with 20 moves....spinning the daily wheel gets jelly fish, it doesn't allow them to be used in the game.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Impossible. Not enough moves........

    ReplyDelete
  61. Just ridiculous how they except you to get this level in just 20 moves. How long will I be stuck on this one, two weeks? Go suck a big one. Oh, I know, buy more moves...rip off

    ReplyDelete
  62. Are you effing serious?! This by far the worst! Its not possible!!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. This level is just absolutely pathetic!
