Candy Crush Saga Level 1997 tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1997 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Score 300,000 points in 30 moves! This is quite a high score to achieve, but there are countdown bombs which will be needed to get this score.
You'l need to release the bombs fairly quickly from the dispensers at the top, you have only 15 moves to clear the first lot of bombs and this isn't always easy so you can expect to lose a few lives before you manage it.
Use vertical stripes to release the bombs once you have cleared some of the blockers and have space to work. Then you will need colour bombs to hit the bombs with and maximise your score.
There are colour bombs on the board in the form of popcorns at the bottom and wrapped candies are the best way to grow them.
If you are struggling to clear the bombs try starting the level qith a colour bomb booster.

  1. No comments? Really? Apparently everyone got drummed out on nightmare levels 1995 & 1996. So nice that this isn't a "hard" level.

  3. Started with sprinkle and stripe and reset til beside each other. This cleared the board enough to make more. Matched other sprinkles I made with bombs or plain colors thar had bombs same color.

  5. Started with sprinkle booster & wrap/stripe. Reset until sprinkle was next to the color of 2 of the top bombs. If all of the bombs are a different color I reset. Then I used a hand switch to get another sprinkle that fell next to a striped candy & then another sprinkle appeared. Ended up with well over 300,000.
    Accumulate sugar drops! Gd luck! NC

  6. I used a color bomb and striped/wrap combo and reset until color bomb and striped were next to each other to open up the board. That still didn't work. I ended up using 2 hand switches to get the right color next to a color bomb that was under popcorn. I think King has come up with these ridiculouslyrics hard levels so we have to use up our boosters and buy more. Yes, sugar drops help, but all I ever get are crummy prizes that don't do much good.

  7. Regarding sugar drops, play level 1476 and DON'T win. Just focus on collecting sugar drops. I just collected 39 of them.

  8. I got this one by starting with sprinkle and stripe/wrap boosters and resetting until the sprinkle was next to a wrap the same color as candies near the popcorns. Opened one right away and had two pulsing on the first move. From there it was fairly easy. Finished with one sprinkle and several specials on the board and Sugar Crush added a lot more points. JS

  9. Only tried this one twice so far. Ran out of lives. Just wanted to say "Hi, I'm still in the game."

  10. Tricky one, haven't tried boosters yet but I suppose I'll have to. I'll let you guys know how it goes. These levels sure are getting tricky. Thanks for advice all

  12. My highest score was 235k but most attempts were far less. Eventually I went for sprinkle and stripe/wrap boosters and reached the target with 14 moves left. The sprinkle started next to the stripe and that wiped out the bombs, but I made a few other moves on the other side first to open up the board a little. I managed to drop the wrapped on top of a popcorn and that gave me another sprinkle. It was easy after that.

  13. My suggestion is that if you have two sprinkles next to each other, play them separately. I had it happen twice. First time I played both together to clear the board. Not many points. The second time I played them separately and earned many more points that way. Make sure the first one is played with a solid or a bomb. A striped could wipe out the other sprinkle. Good Luck!

  15. Tricky level. Bombs go off quickly.

  16. Show video where bombs don't get shuffled into the bottom because there are no moves.

  17. Only played a dozen times but so far yet to register a score. I hate bombs particularly when they are hidden!

  18. Not too bad, really. Didn't start with boosters as many of the other commenters did. I had not yet reached that level of frustration. I just hoped for a shuffle to move the first four bombs down into the playing area where I was easily able to take care of them and any others that fell. I then just tried converting a few of the popcorn into candy balls, which I let ride.

  19. good advice-used both boosters and was able to make a lot of bombs-seemed like a hard level til then!
