Candy Crush Saga Level 2038 tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2038 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 2038 needs loads of luck as well as very careful playing, especially at the end.
The luck is needed to clear the cake bomb as early as possible, but you also need to clear as much jelly as you can on the left side of the board before the cakes is destroyed.
The reason for clearing the jelly on the left is that when the cake hammer clears the board the licorice falls down mostly on the left side, so any jelly there is a bit harder to clear in the very few moves you will have left.
By far the best combo, especially at the end when the cake bomb is gone, is a colour bomb/wrap combo. This will clear just about anything as long as there are some candies the right colour close to where you need them.
I used a lolly hammer to complete this level after losing over 70 lives on it, although I have seen games where the person has passed first go! Definitely you will need luck!
I am not sure which booster will help most on level 2038, I have tried a jelly fish booster which didn't help much. I have also tried a stripe and wrap booster, also without much luck.

I imagined that a colorbomb/wrapped combo would do the trick in this level and eventually after 50+ tries it happened. Horrible level.

30-40 tries and then a lucky board finished with one hammer and four hand switches. This sequence has been an SOB so far, I'm doing sugar drop runs daily to keep hammers and switches on hand!

This is the worst episode by far since I play CC, Horrible.I thought it was over after 2035, but this is alos hell!

Good luck from the Netherlands!

2 sets of extra moves and 4 hammer. Horrible, ridiculous level. Hard but possibly doable with about 10 more move.

Unknown said...

This level is impossible. Even if by some chance of pure luck I do manage to clear the cake, I only have 1 or 2 moves left to clear the remaining jelly at the bottom (which is now covered in licorice) AND the entire top half of the board. No way.

Anonymous said...

For those frustrated - keep trying. about 10th try, I got lucky.

Color bomb & wrapped candy works really well on this level. I had 2 of them, first nearly took out the cake, second eliminated everything, including the remaining jelly at the bottom that were covered.

100% luck (hate levels like this, I was fortunate to get lucky early)

I used both a colour bomd and fish and was very lucky to get a stripe/colour bomb combo. After that (on top) I got a colour bomb/wrap combo which did the job allmost. A colour bomb fish made it complete with 0 moves left at the end. What a hell level... This episode is by far the worst since the beginning...

Good luck from the Netherlands! You'll need it!

I have been struggling for more than a week now. I can't get it. Maybe now that you guys have confirmed that its possible; maybe I will get lucky! Thanks for the post from down here in Nashville!

Anonymous said...

Thanks GUYS!! You did bring me luck Finally got off by using 3 hammers to clear the final 4 jellys! THIS is one of the hardest levels in the game! Glad to be DONE! Keep crushing from Nashville

Only 16 moves? I've tried each of the boosters, separate AND together and I haven't even gotten close. My advice is, don't bother with them. I hope King will consider adding another five or ten moves, like they do sometimes in nearly impossible levels. Because right now, wow just wow. = (

You folks are a lot more adroit than I am. The best I did was 7 left and I've played this level a lot so far. ARRRRRGGGGHHHHH

David Hatton said...

Horrible level, not come close. Think there's a feeling from King that the best players must be pushed to breaking point as these levels have so far been no fun at all. Gradually playing less and less as it's no longer a pleasant pastime.

This is an awful level! Don't waste your boosters, they don't help :(

Anonymous said...

I'm done. If this last episode and this level is what we have to look forward to, this game is no longer fun at all.

2sweet said...

Is it me or is this the worst episode ever with most off he levels are classified Hard!! Not a fun level so far in this episode

Anonymous said...

And the worst part of this level is; if by some sheer feat of magic and luck you do destroy the cake, black licorice keeps on falling down on the bottom level, no matter what. This is a no-win level. It has to be the worst level so far in this entire game. I can't think of any level that come close to this one.

lala said...

Finally won after misery upon misery. And I used a fishy that showed up only once. I think they made it easier.

2sweet said...

I have just watched a video on youtube of this level and when the player breaks the cake and the board is clear, no liquorice falls onto bottom half of the board, which makes it abit more possibilities but when i play the liquorice falls at the bottom making it impossble... which version is correct? Glitch somewhere! Stupid level!!! Might have to wait till my phone updates to this level fand use the many boosters I have

Anonymous said...

Somebody let me know when King fix this level and give you enough moves to actually stand a chance of passing. Playing for days now and the closest I've got is 7 jellies left. Not prepared to lose all my boosters, refuse to pay money. Bored now...

Anonymous said...

Finally completed this after 50th times, with 3 more moves left.

Color Bomb/wrap candy are the Best

Anonymous said...

why fix a level? why does others have the luck? why never a jackpot in 20000 attempts? why still playing? why do I always see on you tube the best boards appear and make the same move I would do? Why is playing on a different system easier or more difficult? questions, questions

Another totally crap level in a totally crap episode. When all the help says is use 50 hammers/hand switches you can tell that we're not playing a game any more.
How is purchasing dozens of hammers/hand switches and then sitting there just hitting things with hammers instead of making any moves a game anymore?

Anonymous said...

Really a crap level, after numerous tries, still haven't even gotten close. Time to delete CC!!

Sherry Hyler said...

I agree 100% . Very frustrating...I have thrown money on this game more than i care to admit...Each time i do it becomes increasingly more expensive to get off a level....This one looks like $15.00 to me...Not Happening

Anonymous said...

100+ tries not even close, tried all kinds of boosters, nothing worked. Two weeks on this level now, maybe tomorrow I can play this level on my mobile

Anonymous said...

stupid impossible level that i have been stuck for 3 weeks, guess is time to give up !

stephanie said...

This just came out on mobile, 25 moves and licorice doesn't drop when cake is cleared! Still really hard but I think it's finally passable

Anonymous said...

I'm another who is quickly losing interest in the game because of this level. Most tries I don't even come close to breaking the cake. This certainly seems to be a level designed to get people to give up.

Anonymous said...

This level appeared on my phone - one life and it's done. SO much easier.

Anonymous said...

Super easy on the mobile version. Got it on 2nd try.

Anonymous said...

The level has now been changed. An extra 9 moves added. Now not to difficult.

Bookboss said...

Definately easier. Somehow i got a stripe wrap early on, then used hammer to hit a stripe which broke the cake, finished with moves to spare.

Paul Stevens said...

Agreed

Paul Stevens said...

Managed to get a lucky start and cleared the cake early. Going along quite nicely till I noticed the liquorice was flooding the bottom section and I had 3 jellies down there still. Another poorly designed level from CC yawn

Anonymous said...

Luck definitely needed here.

Patsy said...

Got it on 10th try using a color bomb and wrap together. Glad for the tips.

Jez Scott said...

A colour bomb and wrapped combination is the ideal way to pass this level. After trying without boosters for about 10 games I used one of my few remaining wrap and stripe boosters and managed to clear the board. The key for me was to reset until I had a colour bomb and wrapped together and that there was a lot of the same colour as the wrap. I did it with moves to spare.

I've used so many wrap and striped boosters on this level that I only have 4 left. It seems almost every level is a hard one and the Colour bomb and wrapped combo is the only way to pass most of the levels without actually losing your mind.

I'm posting for luck, clearly I will need it!

Having played quite a few times on pc, I read the comments here. Passed 2nd time on Mobile. So much easier. But why?

Anonymous said...

I started with the three boosters - color bomb, stripe/wrap and fish, reset many times until the color bomb was next to a wrap with at least 8 of same color. It cleared a lot. After the cake was cleared, I used a hammer to get another color bomb next to a wrap. Done!

Tamijay said...

Oh man, did i get super lucky. First time, no boosters. And nothing particularly skillful - I thought it was an easy level until I saw all the comments. Best of luck everyone!

Anonymous said...

After about 25 goes I finally got it. You have to treat it like 2 separate levels. Clear the lower level (Not easy) before thinking about the upper level. Also, stripe wrap booster is best. I have still not managed to reset a level though.

Good luck from Manila

Wendy Green said...

Another boring lucky board, not playing so much now found others pop back to see if they have improved things but no still rubbish yawn.

Never underestimate the power of posting for luck! Just got it. No idea how many tries. Used four hammers and a switch hand to get two stars. Again, needed the proverbial lucky board.
