Candy Crush Saga Level 2388 All Help tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2388 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
You have to score 250,000 points in 12 moves to complete level 2388 Candy Crush Saga.
This is a very hard level because the bombs are locked in marmalade and cannot be cleared by switching them.
The bombs have to be unlocked and destroyed within 18 moves but the sooner you can unlock them the more points you can score by clearing them.
The best way to clear the bombs is with a colourbomb combo. Either colourbomb/wrap or a colourbomb/stripe, or even a double colourbomb if you get the chance.
Once the bombs are unlocked they will drop down into the bottom part of the board where you will be able to match them as long as you keep working in the bottom half to give them a chance to drop down.
Be careful if the bombs get onto the conveyor as it will take them to the top and you may not be able to clear them so easily.
You will get more bombs dropping but it is only the first lot that are a danger as the new ones will have a countdown of 18 and you will have less moves left.
Once the first bombs are gone the rest are good as they will give you the score needed.
If you have a different board from the one shown you can find the alternative version here.

So this level has changed with 22 moves now. Originally I thought great more moves but this level is ridiculous. I can't ever get all of the bombs out from behind the marmalade before they explode now.

Lucia said...

A double color bomb? Yeah, right.

Anonymous said...

jenene, I think that is a typo by Cookie. I think it was always 22 moves.

Wow, I got the double color bomb and still couldn't get enough points. Switching a color bomb with a timed bomb is crucial.

Suzie O said...

I started with a color bomb stripe boosters and luckily they were next to each other and this uncovered several bombs. There are only 5 colors so I was able to make another color bomb and I combined it with a color that was also two uncovered bombs. This gave me over 100k points.

I was able to do that again and had the winning points but had to use a hammer on a bomb that was on 1. We've played so many levels that are for points and the rules are always the same. Color bomb combined with a special = very little points. Color bomb combined with a plain color that is also the color of one or more countdown bombs = big points. The best is color bomb combined with countdown bomb.

This level is more impossible than the last impossible level.

Just had 336000 points and it did not pass because I think I still had a couple of bombs on the board YUK

Finally passed this one. You definitely need some luck with the color bombs. When you try to make the five-in-a-row for a color bomb, work on the bottom of the board because when you're trying to assemble the five-in-a-row pattern at the top, it often gets disrupted by matches in the bottom. I did a color bomb with a stripe which happened to be the same color as a lot of the timed bombs. That really helped.

Exploding a wrap above group of numbered candies helps

So frustrating level...

I hoped to have to use skill but again I need luck

Started with color bomb and wrap and they were next to each other when board opened. This unlocked all but one timed bomb which I eventually unlocked with hammer. It took another hammer and five extra moves to pass the level.

I've been waiting for my lucky board for the past 5 days...... this one is not fun anymore... please fix this so we can continue to enjoy the game, King. Thank You!

Bummer! After playing more than 100 times, I've had games where I scored 450,000 points but didn't get all the bombs. I've also just had a game where I used a side by side color bomb and got rid of all the bombs, but failed to score 250,000 points. Sigh.

Don Gurian said...

I would love to know how anyone is really passing this board; over 100 tries with and without boosters, same as above. On the rare occasion that I clear bombs, no score and vice versa.
Hate to say it but I am close to quitting after all this time but this is ridiculous!

Anonymous said...

Ridiculous level. Can barely manage one colourbomb let alone two to switch. Rarely release all the bombs and when I do, I don't get the score required. HATE this level.

Never Pay a Cent Bobby said...

Second try starting with wrap/stripe and speckle. Wrap/stripe came together at top left, so opened that side. Most were one color, so speckle ball cleared them. Needed one hammer when last early bomb got to 1 count.

Kevin said...

I've played about 50 times so far. Had a colour bomb/stripe combo three times and a colour bomb/wrap combo twice and still haven't managed to release all the bombs, let alone destroy them. Ridiculous.

Kevin said...

Would you believe it, 5 goes after posting on here I got the lucky board where the colourbombs kept coming and I had a colourbomb/wrap combo just before the last bombs were due to explode which cleared them up. Glad to see the back of that one!!

Anonymous said...

Impossible and impassable! Horrid, horrible level!

Started with a colour bomb, took two tries and a couple of lollies (and a bit of luck)

Good luck from Manila

They just completely changed this level - still hard but different

Anonymous said...

Changed on my PC too-got through 2nd try! :)

Edward Baisden said...

NOW A TOTALLY DIFFERENT BOARD! Layout changed this morning. Still "hard", but I beat it it In four tries. Enjoy it while you can. Cheers...Ed B.

I play on both PC and phone. I could not this level on my PC, been waiting for next level to open up so I could try on my phone and darn if they did not change the entire board on me....somedays I get so frustrated and say I am going to quit....but still too addicted

Anonymous said...

Yep. Same here. Was playing on PC, waiting for my phone to catch up. Go on this morning and the phone levels have been updated but now the level is totally different.

Helpme said...

On.On my mobile games 2383 and 2388 are switched

Anonymous said...

They moved this level to 2388 and they added the red candies back!!! Ugh Here I thought that maybe we all got lucky and King realized this board was impossible. I guess not they just moved farther down the road.

Anonymous said...

That explains it. Finished it with 16 moves left thinking it was easy for a "thunder cloud" level. So now not looking forward to 2388.

I do no have a game screen with bombs or that completion is based on score. This level requires clearing popcorns and more

Anonymous said...

This is not the level that is on iPad and phone where you have only 30 moves to clear popcorn and then liquorice. There's also a fault on this level, when you do manage to clear the popcorn, not enough liquorice falls. seems impossible.

Anonymous said...

This is not level 2383!! You have to clear blockers, popcorns, and then licorice falls!! Totally impossible with the amount of moves you get.... For some reason this is all mixed up, please fix!!

Anonymous said...

I thought I recognized the board. Then I came here and read the comment I made after clearing the board 4 days ago when it was a lower level. has someone spiked my tea or this a complete mess up? Anyway, I guess I just follow my own advice and start with a colour bomb.

Good luck from Manila (we seem to need it)

Anonymous said...

Did it (with help from a colour bomb (again) and guess what? It didn't register and now I have to o it a third time. On the point of quitting.

Good luck from Manila

Another level based solely on luck... will have to wait for the Lucky board!

In the title at the top of hints and tips it says "Level 2388". For anyone who hadn't read past comments, levels 2383 and 2388 are switched.

Victoria said...

Thank you!

Victoria said...

Used advice above and started with color bomb and wrap and it opened the whole board up and was able to make more color bombs to finish this level after playing numerous times without boosters and absolutely getting no where.

Tinalp said...

This is nuts. I have 2383 instead and can't even get a special. I'm out of boosters so I guess I'll play for boosters until this boredom passes and try again. Posting for luck I guess.

Julie d said...

Never had any trouble with this level on iPad. If you start with all three helmets (keep playing level 1 until you get all 3) then reset until your choc bomb is next to wrap. Make sure there are enough of this colour amongst the wrapped bombs. Was easy Peasy after that. First attempt , sorted. I must say some of the games in this set have been awful. Struggled with even some of the easier levels. Next level is super hard. Dreading it if the previous games are anything to go by.

Wrong board and those saying 2383 and 2388 are reversed--not so on iPhone or iPad. What a waste of time. Uses most moves just to get thrithe blocks. Boring!!!!!!

Tracy said...

Ok, thought I was going crazy or that I could see into the future. I knew I played this one(2388) a little bit ago (2383) Luckily I didn't have to play the 2383 (for what it is now).

Anonymous said...

This level sucks just as much as all of the other garbage levels! King sucks!

Patricia Presley said...

Been on this board too long. So boring I don't even use all my lives before quitting.

Anonymous said...

How is this not considered a "hard" level???

Doreen Price said...

Posting for luck as impossible level

Terri Messenger said...

This is Level 2388.
The video shows the correct board but says 2383.
The lunk for the 'alternative version' takes you to 2383 but should go to 2388.

TLS said...


2388 was 2383. For some unknown reason they switched them on the game board

Anonymous said...

Not too bad, really. I started with candy ball and striped/wrapped boosters and restarted the game until I had a candy-ball-strapped combo. I left the combo sitting there as I made enough other moves to get the total moves left down to 19. I had my fingers crossed that nothing would inadvertently set off my combo. So when I did set it off, it eliminated all of the time bombs, and as all of the bombs that fell out now had 20 moves to go with only 19 moves left in the game, I didn't have to worry about them. I used a hammer to create another candy ball, which I set off against a bomb. This put me close to the points needed, and with the moves I had left was easily able to get enough points for a star. And as luck would have it, a third candy ball was created which I again set off against a bomb, putting me over 400,000 points. The main thing is waiting until the game clock is down to 19 before setting off your opening combo and hoping that you had enough bombs of the same color as your wrap to get all of the bombs.

I have thought this before but this one is impossible. It is no longer fun but very boring. I guess that I am just getting tired of these boring hard levels.

I am glad I am not the only one feeling this way. These levels aren't fun any longer. If I need boosters to win just start every game with them.
