Candy Crush Saga Level 2229 tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2229 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 2229 is a timed level, you have to score 150,000 points in 25 seconds to complete the level.
The good thing is that there are plenty of extra time candies available.
The bad thing is that there are 2 bombs locked in marmalade which you have to clear in the first 10 moves before they explode and end the game.
For this reason you need to break through the blockers and get candies into the bottom right section in as few moves as possible so that you can clear the bombs.
You may be able to clear them using sideways stripes but you need a bit of luck.
Once you have cleared the first bombs keep working in the right side of the board to create cascades, but spare a second to glance around and look for colourbomb patterns as these will give you the score faster.
Keep collecting extra time candies and you can play for quite a long time, you will get more bombs as you play, but not many and they are easy to clear when they appear.

  1. I enjoyed this one. Building up points is painfully slow, but not difficult once the board is opened up and the +5 and bombs show up regularly. If your nerves are good, you can probably keep playing for a verrrry long time.

  2. Unable to crush the initial bombs on the right and if they do drop there is nothing to match them with. The long cascades take up too much time on the clock and I run out of time. No fun and waiting on lucky board.

  3. I've been playing for 3 days and finally I got the points I needed, but I got greedy and had over 500,000 points and didn't pay close enough attention and a bomb got me. No luck since then and next time I'll just let the timer run out.

  4. This time I was able to break through the blockers fairly quickly, but the cascade was so long that the clock ran out before I could make even one more move. Frustrating.

  5. The biggest problem here is the two 10-move countdown bombs on the right in marmalade. It's hard to get to them. Most likely, they will kill your game rather than the clock. I passed this on the PC without any boosters but I was thinking, if after several tries and I am getting nowhere on this level, I'll start with a color bomb and hope the two bombs are of the same color. Then I would use 2 lollipops to hammer the bomb and switch the color bomb with a candy of the same color as the bombs. That will give you about 50,000 points right away. Several bombs will drop later on but by that time, you have broken into the right side already. Each bomb is worth 3,000 points so matching them will increase your score faster.
    If you are having problem with this 1st of the 3 timed levels in this episode, wait till you get to level 2240.

  6. I have no nerve for any of the timed level. I choke every time. Posting for a good luck.

  7. I did just like Cookie's adviced and kept working in the right side of the board. Phew! Victory! That's why I come to this site:) Thank you!

    2. I can't even break through to the right side of the board!

  8. My time just runs out watching the cascade drop to the bottom right side.
    I was able to do 3 moves, and then the cascades just ate all the time up.

    1. Sage here: Right. Cascades eat up time.

  9. I'm interested to see what they do with this level on mobile. The fact that the clock runs out during cascades is bogus. I guess this is another level where luck plays a big part. Anyway, I hope posting this brings me luck.

    1. I agree. I'm going to give it a go on the PC. Had no luck on the mobile. I think CC has finally broken me. I just don't have the energy or enthusiasm for it anymore.

  10. I'm also having an issue with the time running out during the long cascades. The fair thing for King to do would be to pause the timer until cascades finish.

  11. No matter what I do the clock rus out or the bombs explode using a hammer takes too much time.. need luckey board and I am hoping it comes soon as I hate timed levels.

  12. On Android requirement is 200,000 points in 25 seconds with 9 count time bombs. Looks like I'll be here a long time.

  13. Finally! 310,000, no boosters. Looked ahead and there are two more time levels this episode and apparently the last one is the worst. Not looking forward to it.

  15. Another useless, junk level. King sucks

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hey King, see all the comments, all you timed levels suck. But sure, keep em coming. Done with cc. Deleting

    ReplyDelete
  17. This one is impossible. Cascades eat up all the time. I guess we are due since the last level was actually fun and doable. King can you fix or at least give more time.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I have 24 seconds to get 200,000 points. Talk about luck, posting for it!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Total BS level. The cascades eat up all available time and you're done.

    ReplyDelete
  20. This level is just stupid. Who could possibly be having fun seeing their short few seconds run out as the candies cascade. I've had it for a while..I feel insulted

    1. Absolutely agree! I'm tired of the Cascades taking all the time and I can't do a thing about making extra time let alone a sprinkler or killing the timed bombs. Even if I start with the Sprinler can't do this ridiculous level

      Delete
  21. I'm done unless they tweak this level. If I do break through the blockers, time runs out while the candies cascade and there's nothing I can do but sit there and watch. Shame on you, King.

  22. Have played this game over 3 years , don't seem to enjoy playing it anymore , loved a challenge but some games have got silly , one would think king would want to keep old timers but the games have got stupid .25 seconds to get 200,000,the game cannot get started before its over , time to look elsewhere , shame

    ReplyDelete
  23. This level is awful! I get to a point where I clear the bombs on right side and then no time candies drop, no ways to make sprinkle to get extra points for hitting the bombs, utterly ridiculous. I had some extra gold bars to use when I was close, don't waste them! No where close!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. It's not a hard level, all u need is a little patience friends. I got it after 10 tries with no boosters. Dont give up! Good luck

    ReplyDelete
  25. Posting for luck, it's the cascades that are doing it for me, by the time they finish my time has run out.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have NO TIME (pardon the pun) for ridiculous timed levels that are set up for you to continually lose!! I have played lots of them and I have also come to a point where I've had enough! When I get to this point, when visiting my daughter, I ask to use her laptop and surprise surprise I pass within a couple of games. It is so so much easier on a computer or laptop and I know some people do not have access to them but if the frustrAtion gets too much, just pop into an internet cafe, library etc. I know this is inconvenient for most but you WILL PASS. Onwards and upwards for me :-)

  27. After maybe ten tries, haven't gotten more than 80,000 points yet. And yes, cascades usually eat up all the time before I can make any move. No strategy, just frantic action. No fun at all especially with my bad eyesight. Getting so bored and fed up with such levels.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I failed about five or six times before I passed with almost 400k. The second attempt I got 125k but twice I couldn't break through and the time ran out with three and four counts left on the bombs. I didn't think I was going to make it on the last attempt because of the cascades but a sprinkle formed next to the remaining start bomb colour and the score went to 185k. After that I just had to keep an eye out for the bombs.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Don't like these timed levels at all.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yikes! That 25 sec goes so fast. All of a sudden, all your turns are used up.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Stupid scumbags raised it to 200,000 points now! FUCK YOU KING!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I don't like time levels. This one is impossible for me to do. What a pity.After so many years of playing with a lot of fun it stops here for me.

    ReplyDelete
  33. There's no way I'm beating this level! 200,000 points? The time runs out by the time the candies are finished falling after the first move!!!!!! It's Friggin Ridiculous! Guess I'm done with CC.

    ReplyDelete
  34. iPad has 200,000 in 25 seconds. Please correct..

    ReplyDelete
  35. When is the 200,000 going to be corrected to 150,000 as on vedio?

    ReplyDelete
  36. another crap level. I hate timed levels anyway and its stupid to just get 25 seconds to make 200,000 when the cascades take your time and you can make a play. I keep saying i am going to quit but the time is getting shorter for this to be true.

    ReplyDelete
  37. More stupid boring timed levels disadvantaging the physically challenged. Boring tedious and stupid. awaiting a lucky board. very bored, no fun.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Challenging game. The cascades cause you to run out of time, before you can access the extra time, or the bombs. If you finally get a good board, and get rid of the bombs, then the extra time stops appearing. Posting for luck!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Posting for luck definitely works. As soon as I posted the above remarks, I passed this level, with a very lucky board, and then 2 more levels. Thank you , KING.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Come on cc your timed levels are getting silly. This one is just crazy. Come on king your lucky you still have us still playing.

    ReplyDelete
  41. That is just bullshit. In sweden where I live, the score to beat is 200k. I got 168 before time runned out, and I am so angry right now. This has happend before in other levels to, that we have much more score to beat!!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Losing patience with so many timed levels..especially this one which is totally BS.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Posting for luck. It's the only way to get 200K.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Guess I won't be spending much time on this cc level. Lives are gone in a flash and I can't get remotely close. 😕

    ReplyDelete
  45. PURELY RIDICULOUS AND IMPOSSIBLE!

    ReplyDelete
  46. For the first time I spent money on gold bars for candy crush. I'm so mad at myself. After I spent gold bars for the first extra 15 seconds, and then the second 15 seconds, I was out of gold bars. I was too invested at that point to not spend the money to get enough gold bars to finish it off. Basically I just never want to see this level again. I hear there is a worse one coming up but I'll deal with that when I get to it.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Absurd! Way to ruin the game, King!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Don't understand why I am even wasting my time on this one. 😕 After Reading Sandy's comment, it's not worth spending any money on it.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Posting for luck. First time I got over 176,000 points and I haven't been anywhere close to 100,000 since. And I stRted playing yesterday when I had a sprinkle ball at the start of each game. Today it's even worse with no sprinkle ball. Cascades don't get me as much as the bombs I can't get too. Honestly I don't see passing this one with no time to even think. And how discouraging to hear there are 3 timed levels in this round. Good luck everyone.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Agree with the above comment. Sprinkles have not helped me at all. Getting so ready to quit. This is no way to have fun when you just have to wait for a lucky board.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Normally this site has good insight, but, lots of time Candies? F off.

    ReplyDelete
  52. King, are you kidding me? You really need my $2 to buy one extra move? Then i see no other reason to cut off the score at 199,620. Thanks, King, you suck.

    ReplyDelete
  53. This is the most ridiculous level. Kings level designers are proving to be jackasses. Three weeks trying, 90,000 is the best I've got. No problem getting the bombs but hardly get any extra time candies and the cascades eat up the time always. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Goodbye cc.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Seems impossible. The cascades just use up what little time you have. Five lives gone in a few minutes. Sadly it seems like the end is in sight for my CC days.

    ReplyDelete
  55. What can I say, a few tries after posting above I got it! Can't give any tips really, the game almost played itself. So take heart, lucky boards do come along!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Can't even crush the two timed bombs in 10 shots...this makes it a very boring level for me. Going through lives in 3 minutes. Really need some luck here.
