Candy Crush Saga Level 2457 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2457 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Clear the jelly in 25 moves to complete level 2457 Candy Crush Saga.
Colourbombs and stripes are the order of the day for this level. It is important that you collect the keys as quickly as possible either with stripes from the top or colourbombs.
You only need three keys to unlock all the locked cells, two of them are in the middle square and the third is in the third row from the bottom in the middle.
Once the locks are open look for combos to clear the jelly. Often the keys are tricky to hit and you may use a lot of moves, but the jelly is only single thickness so fairly easy to clear once it is open.
Work down towards the bottom of the board to create cascades and you shouldn't have too much trouble clearing the jelly.
If you are struggling to collect the keys you may find it helpful to start the level with a colourbomb booster.

  1. Frustrating. I'm finding it difficult to get the keys. A lot of wasted moves.

  2. Cookie makes it sound so easy. But after several days of trying, i haven't even got close. Extremely frustrated as a result!

    ReplyDelete
  3. This is starting to feel impossible. I've only managed to clear all three keys twice (with three moves left) but then still have the popcorn left to clear. At least most tries I can give up a few moves in as typically I haven't touched the first key ten moves in. Boring.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Takes too many moves to remove the keys (assuming you even are able to make special candies at all)! I wonder if anyone at King follows game participation to see that they are losing people with these ridiculous levels. It becomes not only boring, but a waste of time.

  5. Level from hell. Finally had an extremely lucky board where I'd unlocked everything with 16 moves left, and STILL I had to use a switch and a hammer to clear it on the last move, and even then I needed a lucky match to clear the final jelly. I usually don't use boosters unless I KNOW I can clear the level, but on this level I had to take leaps of faith and use them earlier in the level than I usually would. If you do the same, you have to be okay with wasting some boosters, but eventually it will pay off.

  6. Agree with all previous comments. Will have to play same old same old sugar srop levels to get hammers etc

  7. After a week on this level still no where near to beating it in over 100 goes only managed to get 2 keys once no boosters to help ! Think I might give cc a rest for a while this level is boring & way to difficult you need a mega lucky board not enough moves available!! Rant over

    ReplyDelete
  11. Cookie finds ALL levels easy. For the rest of us this one is not.

    ReplyDelete
  12. far too few moves!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Cookie is employed by King it's his job to convince us these ridiculous levels are easy.

    ReplyDelete
  14. this is the most fucked up game ever

    ReplyDelete
  15. used all my boosters plus 3 extra moves can't even clear the keys ready to quit again. the only way to beat these games is multiple boosters

    ReplyDelete
  16. CC wants us to be stuck it seems.....

    ReplyDelete
  17. No CC wants your money. Its not a game its a business.
    One I shall never paid for.

    ReplyDelete
  18. yes, i will agree this is a miserable level. been on it a week and can't get close to completing. posting for luck.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'ld love to watch the developers try this level...

    ReplyDelete
  20. This level is the most ridiculous of all.
    Are we all sick of waiting for a lucky board that is the only way to get past this one.
    CC be nice to us.

    ReplyDelete
  21. This is one of those levels that I can use up all 5 of my lives in about 10 minutes and get no where. It takes 3 hits just to get the first key and the stars have to be perfectly aligned to have that happen. Too few moves. The frustration levels are increasing and there is just no fun.

    ReplyDelete
  22. OK CC is not listening to our requests shall we all just quit for a while???
    Been on it for a while and not even getting close to getting it done.
    If only CC would give us a lot more moves for this one.
    Thank _ You CC.

  23. Needs to be 4 colors...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Got within one popcorn using boosters saved by playing sugar drop levels for 2 days. Why hammers not working on popcorns on this level??

    ReplyDelete
  25. Dont waste any booster on this level. It is not worth it.
    Only a question of luck... or said when CC decides to let you win.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Nasty. No sense wasting boosters here. It's a lucky board that is only worth using a hand or hammer at the end if you seem to be close. I probably had that board on my second attempt and didn't hammer my way out, being stubborn trying to pass without boosters. Ugg. Days later, I'm regretting it! ~Katrina

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yay! They nerfed the level!! No more licorice around the first key and the next key drops right down. Each key also opens more of the bottom. Still haven't passed, but at least there is hope.

    ReplyDelete
  28. This is the worse level CC has created . Must have been angry at the world when they did this one for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  29. This level deserves the prize for absurdity. It is virtually impossible even to get started. There is not much point to a game that depends entirely on a lucky board.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Leaving CC at this point. I have played this level so many times and used up all of my boosters without any luck. I see that the level was changed to remove the licorice around the key for some but not in my case. What is even more frustrating is that for at least the last ten times when I reached a chest it wouldn't open so no boosters left now. Should be exercising instead of sitting at the computer anyway. Thx CC for getting me off my butt.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Fish, color bomb, and stripe-wrap boosters, and patience. It took me only two tries with boosters.

    (I'm still seeing the licorice. Did they nerf it and then un-nerf it?)

    (By the way, Cookie is a she, and she's not employed by King/Activision. She's just very good, very patient, and very lucky (though she maintains that she often plays a lot of bad boards to get a good one).

    ReplyDelete
  32. And they just made it harder...

    ReplyDelete
  33. cc are you serious? not even booster seem to work on this level!! I started with bomb colour, fish and stripe/bombs and only got one key... WTF

    ReplyDelete
  34. I got it on the 1st attempt with 10 moves to go. I used the color bombs just to collect the keys. After the 3rd key, the bottom part opens up as Cookie stated.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Played it on the Android version this afternoon, which is impossible and used up a pile of boosters. However, when I played the PC version this evening there is no licorice around the key in the centre and the candies under the popcorns are unlocked. One colour bomb booster at the start to get the first key and it was a cakewalk from there. Phew...thought I'd be stuck for a while on that one.

    First try on pc, no boosters. I did have luck and get two CB together mid way through and several others to use with stripes.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Playing on Android. First try, with 5 moves left. Used a fish booster and on my last move got the the last chocolate sprinkle from the popcorn next to a wrap which finished the last jellies.

  38. Red helmet plus CB and stripe/wrap boosters. After reading the comments I figured this was the time to use my many boosters! I used a hammer to open the first key and I still needed another hammer on another key plus a couple of swaps to get it done. The next level looks like a real beast. CC is not going easy on us this week! Carol the elder

    ReplyDelete
  39. praise be! they changed it

    ReplyDelete
  40. Absolutely hated this level. Even with helmets it was a nightmare. Used helmet help and matched chocolate bomb with wraps with same colors near popcorns. After several tries with this method it finally paid off. The explosion took out first two keys. I admit to using a lollies to hit last key. Was afraid of losing my advantage. Cleaned the rest up and will move on. So far not enjoying this episode.

    1. Finished episode. Must give hope to all. It does get better. Plug away. This is the last horrible level in this group. The rest are doable without too much stress. Also, I thank Mort for his help.

    Bravo King! You outdid urself to really take all the fun out the game. Again this game is not a totally free! King is using our FB info to sell them for adverts and stuff. So at least try create something fun. This level is the perfect example of the inpossible. Playing a level a 100+ plus times is no good. I'm busting myself not even playing every day anymore, cus i just dont care that much anymore. Up to the supercell games, where devellopers know how to appreciate the gamers....

    ReplyDelete
  42. I finished this after reading the blog. I really do think the blog is magic. I did it on my second try. I got a wrapped candy/stripe combo and that helped with the two popcorns hitting them at the same time. Next level is supposed to be hard too so I will probably be back for help.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Finally passed level using a CB helmet matched with CB booster. One star but happy!

    ReplyDelete
  44. No skill needed. Just luck. Got down to only needing one popcorn, and only one hit on it. Tried using a lollipop, but it wouldn't work on the popcorn. Just have to wait for that lucky board.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm at the point of frustration that will send me to any and all King game review sites and give them thumbs down.

    ReplyDelete
  46. All my friends had stopped playing cc with the upcomimg hard n hardest levels. 2457 is the limlt most boring most frustrating level to crack

    ReplyDelete
  47. Don't give up. I passed this without boosters after about 15 goes. Made sprinkles, or used the ones from the popcorn, to clear the keys then a sprinkle/wrap cleared the bottom of the board except for one jelly. Only got one star but a win is a win.

    ReplyDelete
  48. After about 25 attempts and finally 2 hammers I passed this level

    ReplyDelete
  49. This is the most boring level! Within 5 moves, you know you won't even get one key, much less the 2 popcorns and all of the jellies! My iPad still has the first key in licorice - my PC has the update. However, it makes no difference in the outcome. Once, out of about 100 tries, I got all 3 keys, and one popcorn - with 2 moves left! No way! King has, again, managed to take all of the challenge and fun out of this level. Also, my iPad "eats" my daily boosters! They go away daily, unless I use them. No saving up boosters on my iPad! My PC gets one a day, and whatever King decides to give me is totally useless. The fish only appear at the beginning of the game, and never reappear - really???
    If there is a lucky board, I really want to see it! So done!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Lange gespielt Heute geschafft aber nur mit ca 8 Lollys und das ist nicht Sinn der Sache

    ReplyDelete
  51. stupid level too many colors, cant get the keys and if I do no where near enough moves to finish. guess its really is just another wait for a lucky board level! no skill required :(

    ReplyDelete
  52. Impossible level. Luck only. Can't get more than half the needed goal.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Crazy hard level, needs a lucky board. Too many had levels this week

    ReplyDelete
  54. Instead of another key dropping after clearing licorice and first key, a candy drops between first and second key which means 4 hits before the 3rd key. Impossible, out of hundred tries, only got all keys twice with less than 5 moves remaining and both popcorn.

    It's insulting to players to put up ridiculous levels. I refuse to subject myself to the whelms of a computer algorithm which decides it will let you finally win with a "luckyboard".

    ReplyDelete
  55. No skill on this bloody level . Just a wast of time.

    ReplyDelete
  56. How do you get the third key! I've cleared the first 2 keys, with plenty of moves left, but the third key never unlocks to clear it.... Is this happening to anyone else! I even tried hitting it with the hammer but nothing!! Very frustrating!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. It seems like King is hell bent on irritating the shit out of its players

    ReplyDelete
  58. This is a truly fucked up level!!!!!!
    Don't think I can be bothered anymore

    ReplyDelete
  59. I really got to ask with the makers of candy crush are on ..... this level seems just about impossible and Reading these comments I'm beginning to think that I'm right . Why does candy crush have to do this to us why did they have to give us these virtually impossible frustrating levels ?! Posting for my lucky board

    ReplyDelete
  60. Why was I excited to pass 2455?? This is worse..shouldn't this be fun?? I have to somehow kick this habit

    ReplyDelete
  61. almost had it on PC after about 500 tries (rotating between PC, phone, tablet), but lollipop wouldn't work on popcorn!!! What????

    ReplyDelete
  62. Don't waste your boosters on this one. It's impossible!

    ReplyDelete
  63. This whole episode has been crap. Why so many horrible hard levels? This might do me in for a while until they fix this. I'm not spending money on this game. I am ready for them to STOP making levels altogether.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Wasted hammer and hand switches on last level when i finally managed to clear most of bottom after days of trying..only to be here which is even harder..managed to clear all keys once with what i thought were enuff moves but no luck..arrgghh

    ReplyDelete
  65. Whatever you don't spend a penny on this game. Corporate greed took the fun away.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Mine changed twice today from hard level to easy then back to hard how frustrating so I Played easy level by putting date 24 hours ahead on my phone and passed with one life easy but do remember to put date back before you play..Easy

    ReplyDelete
  67. I HATE THIS LEVEL SOOOOOO MUCH!! Bye bye Candy Crush. Thanks for curing my addiction!!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'm posting for luck... sobs...

    ReplyDelete
  69. It says something when you're happy to see a stripe in the right place and going the right way! Thrown everything at this one and am about ready to quit!

  71. Posting for luck. I know it's usually a matter of waiting for a lucky board but that's not coming. Anyone know what's going on with the helmets? Those boosters sure would be helpful right now

    ReplyDelete
  72. Not like me to complain having got this far for free. But I am well and truly fed up now - nothing ever goes where you want it to, the stripes are in the wrong direction and as for on android who needs liquorice as well. Looks like I might have to wait until I have at least 10 hammer lollipops and a few hand switches in the reserves.... off to play another game for a while. Carry on crushers.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Don't like levels where skill is not a factor, just luck. No chose of moves because there are so few.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Would like a board where so many chocolate sprinkles just appear, and a double one. I haven't received any.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I thought last level was hard. This one is worse.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Labeled super hard. Should be labeled impossible. Without luck.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Been on this so long. Getting bored and frustrated.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Wasted so many boosters so far. No end in sight.

    ReplyDelete
  79. No need in sight. Bye candy crush.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Truly don't think this level is possible on iPad or iPhone unless you get multiple chocolate sprinkles together. Hardest level to date.
    Ready to call it quits unless I get a lucky board very soon. Been on this too long to call this game fun.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Just had a double chocolate sprinkles and still no luck. Can't get less than 24 remaining. This level is impossible.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I agree. levels that only require luck are no fun. Try ti hit the keys... Wow, great strategy when you can't even make a stripe cndy because only 1 move available!!!
    Posting for luck!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Hundreds & hundreds of tries. This level is not possible. Can't even collect the keys let alone do anything else

    ReplyDelete
  84. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE LEVEL!! 1) even if you get keys you can't get popcorns 2) not enough moves 3) next to impossible to make special candies 4) using boosters is a waste 5) just wait for a lucky board, even if you've played 300 times!!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Thanks candy fairy for helping me with the previous levels! I truly need help with this level. I need a lucky board! Mouse

    ReplyDelete
  86. After 3 try's I got a lucky board. I used Mort's Helmet + , I was given 1 CB for collecting stars, and I added 1 booster CB. This time I used them separately for the 3 keys. I'm down to 0 boosters, but that's OK because I passed that horrible level. Thanks again CC fairy! Mouse

    ReplyDelete
  87. this one is just stupid. really? after that last horrible level. I think i am finally done. when no skill level will help you pass and just lucky boards at the whim of the game will help, i think its time to be done:-(

    ReplyDelete
  88. I've spent my whole weekend playing this frustrating level. Can only get one key.... this is where I say adios to cc....

    ReplyDelete
  89. I find myself ranting on every frustrating level until I pass, but this one is just ignorant. Early on I got down to the two pop corns with 5 0r 6 moves left and one blinking but I had no hammers which I knew I should use if I was ever to pass. Now I fear I may have to keep playing lower levels until I gather at least 6 hammers in order to ever pass this imbecile level. Really not worth it in my book. This game has gone to the dogs.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I can't believe it, but this ranting on this site seems to actually bring luck. Yes, I passed this damned level. Stayed away for a bit and decided to give it a go. On first I should have passed it but I made some mental lapses and was left with the two pop corns blinking and no hammers. I was disappointed in myself and was expecting agony for another long haul. Fortunately on the 2nd try I got a bomb I maneuvered on top of a corn along with a stripe that hit the left corn along with the key. That opened up the color bomb and i managed to make a bomb I sat on top of the color bomb, made a stripe to hit the 2nd key from top, then maneuvered the color close to the other corn and got the 2 detonation needed to open the corn. Got two more color bombs and the last I used on another wrap bomb. That left me 1 jelly to the left which had the colors lined up for me. So excited I don't remember how many moves left. I think a cool half dozen. In all I probably played this level 25 times before I got through. It's doable.now on to the next headache.

  91. Oh, for you who persevere, expect Dante's final circle of hell next.

    ReplyDelete
  92. How many days does a person have to play this game before a lucky board. This isn't much fun Candy Crush.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Used all boosters done in one go with time to spare!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I can't stand this kind of level, where you know that nothing but the 'lucky board' is going to get you thru.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Safe to say this episode has ended my fixation with candy crush. Yippee!
    After being stuck on the last level for well over a week before being 'gifted' my elusive lucky board this level has broken me.
    Time to bow out. .... it's been fun untimely this episodemail but I'm not wasting any more of my life
