Candy Crush Saga Level 2188 Cookies tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2188 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Having 6 colours on the board makes level 2188 super hard.
The secret to beating this is to clear the cake bomb without detonating the UFO. If you can do this you are almost guaranteed to pass.
First clear as much of the double layer jelly as you can while making stripes to hit the cake bomb. You can make stripes in the main part of the board and drop them down onto the conveyor to use when they are in a position to hit the cake.
If you detonate the UFO it will hit the cake but will not clear the whole cake so you will still need to finish clearing it.
However if you manage to clear the cake it will take off all the single layer jelly and also detonate the UFO, this will then place it's 3 wraps near the bottom left corner where the cake was and clear the remaining jelly from there.
This was the way I managed to clear level 2188 after many times detonating the UFO early and failing.

I went at it the other way. I tried to leave the UFO alone until there was noting left but cake, then let it eat cake. That got me through it in three tries.

Thanks for the tips!! Passed on the first go...there was nothing but the cake left...got it cleared and it was done!

Tips are great, but if the UFO doesn't bust up the entire cake you need special candies to finish it off and I'm not getting those to clear the cake. Most times I don't get the candies to get to the UFO. IMO, a lucky board is needed. Frustration is setting in on this one, which is just one of many.

Tricky but sorta fun ... I used a fish booster and it worked after many tries. I got a candy bomb stripe ready to fire but waited until I had most of everything cleared so that it would leave me with just a few candies at the end which luckily the fish got before the bombs blew up. Next time I would wait until ten moves left to detonate cause the bombs are a bit of a threat at the end. Onward crushers and get your fish out they work swimmingly:)

Android version is totally different. This is a fruit level with locked licorice squares but lucky candies that sometimes help but often hinder. I passed playing the original level on IOS using a fish booster and a hammer.

It took me 2 days to beat this. I was so disappointed when I found out the UFO doesn't clear up the cake.
Finally beat it but I had to use one hummer to line up candies to crush the last jelly. I must say I did not enjoy this one:( iPhone/1 hammer/2 stars

Need an extremely lucky board to even come close. The only way to clear the cake bomb is Colour Bomb/Stripe combo or a Wrapped/Wrapped combo activated just above the cake bomb.

The fish booster did the trick for me.

I'm not having any luck on this board. Have only cleared the cake twice in two days. The flying saucer never helps. The fish boosters never show up after the start of the game.

BTW has anyone figured out what it takes for the boosters like fish and coconut wheel to show up again. I haven't seen any pattern at all.

I'm waiting on that lucky board to make its way around to me.

Maybe there is something to the rumors of posting a comment then getting the lucky board.
4 lives later the lucky board shows up, cascading makes stripes and takes the cake out. The rest was history.

Tried it MB's way plus started with a fish booster and left the cake and UFO alone (mainly because I couldn't hit the cake if I tried anyway). UFO then shattered most of the cake and 2 hammers later I was done.

Regarding boosters showing up multiple times in a level, I wish there was a truck to learn there, but it appears to be random.

Had the helmet for about ten levels and lost it on this one. Grrrrrrr!

Won on the very next round though despite setting off the UFO too early, NBU. Go figure.

Back to life without the helmet, which I'm still not quite sure if I like or not. On the one hand, I/we get free boosters and extra moves. On the other hand, I'm so paranoid to lose it that I wind up using tons of boosters to ensure I keep it level after level, and I play REALLY slowly.

Please can someone tell me how to set off the ufo? It's in a totally unreachable place.

I have come this far and find this level to be the most difficult level yet. It is getting rather boring and maybe I am just tired of candy crush

how on earth do you remove the cake?!!

Took me a few days. Needs some skill and planning ahead and of course luck... basic ingredient. Used striped candies to get the cake (got the last piece with the last move) and then the UFO broke the jellies under itself and the cake. Quite hard but not boring as there is a fair amount of moves available.

got through this with a fish booster on android. getting to the ufo is tricky. it slipped out of it's slot onto the conveyer built a couple of times, but I never figure out how to make that happen intentionally. Finally got it by lining up a stripe and a wrap, which hit the ufo and got rid of much of the cake. the fish took care of the rest.

Can't get rid of the cake. Posting for luck.

Tried a fish booster still didn't come close. Waiting for a lucky board. It's the only way to pass this level.

There's no way this can be called a fun level.... having a pretty hard time :(

Maybe this post will bring me luck?

Tou52 said...

Woo hoo hooooooo, posting DID bring me luck, :):) Needed a hammer to finish it off, but I’m glad to be moving on ;)
