Candy Crush Saga Level 2498 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2498 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
You have 35 moves to clear the jelly and complete level 2498 Candy Crush Saga.
Although it may look impossible to clear the popcorns at the top you don't need to worry too much about them. Look for ways to clear the candies in the bottom two sections at the sides and you will get stripes which can be switched together to hit the popcorns at the top.
Colourbombs or stripes and combos will get the stripes dropping for you and they will continue to drop every time you use them so the popcorns and the jelly under them will be cleared quite easily.
Make sure the licorice is out of the way when you use your combos.
The hard part is getting the stripes to drop in the first place.

you would think that by this level, i would be used to levels that seem impossible, but this one is particularly difficult for me. i just can't seem to get the necessary moves to clear those top popcorns. posting for luck

Anonymous said...

as luck would have it, four hands after posting the above, I got "the board" that allowed me to concentrate on the bottom side stripes as Cookie recommends. Yes, being able to hit the popcorn with those stripes several times is what cleared the board. I started with a fish booster on it, which also helped as I was able to match a fish with a stripe twice.

Seem to constantly come up just a few moves short, very frustrating.

Anonymous said...

My board is not the same.
I don't automatically get 4 new striped candies every time I use them.
Once I use the striped I have to use up another go just to get 1 stripe so therefore there is not enough moves. Why is this different ?

billyrabbit said...

My board is the same as the above comment.

m said...

This is brutal. I can't even clear the left/right bottom candies. Ugh.
Posting for luck.

Mrs. M said...

The fish booster is the way to go. Plus, posting for luck helped, too.

First try: lucky board no booster ;)

Cleared but it still shows in the same level...why???

Good Grief! This is a killer level!! Only one turn that I was able to get consistent stripes and of course still did not pass. Will have to wait for it to show up on my iPad on Wednesday.

I don't know how anyone is able to pass this level as it is now. I have tried hundreds of times, and not even close. I refuse to buy hammers to smash through it,, so this may be the end of my Candy Crush journey. So maddening after getting so far.

Anonymous said...

I hate this level. There's just not enough moves. Only one striped candy comes down at a time - please fix this Candy Crush!!!

I need help CC

Anonymous said...

Must have been to many people completing without using boosters because I only have 25 moves and mine doesn't drop striped candy like the video. The last level was nutty difficult and this one is worse. If I can manage to hit the striped candy in the lower boxes it takes at least 3 moves to get two stripes for a combo.

Anonymous said...

It is not 35 moves it is now 25. Let's see a video with it done in 25 moves! Chances are you won't as it is beyond difficult. Thanks King, appreciate the hard levels!

my board is also different from youtube, it doesnt come out 4 strip candy, horrible level

Anonymous said...

? a little joke from CC? Help??

Ruud Piest said...

Dear King, what you´ve done now is just the ultimate impossiblity. To make the popcorn pop takes at least 24 moves. We get 25 moves to clear this level. Do the math and change it again.

Anonymous said...

Hi everyone,
I've emailed King, and asked if they will look at this level again. I have been stuck for days, and have lost count of how many attempts I've made without hardly ever even getting close. Fingers crossed they listen.

I hate this new format, I don't get sugar drops anymore. It steals lives, I had 8 seconds to wait for my new life when I accepted a life from a friend, then I played it and lost and had to wait almost 30 minutes for the next life.

Anonymous said...

not going to play till they fix it. no matter how many times i play i still get the different board. my strip candy doesnt fall like the one they show in youtube horrible level.

Anonymous said...

Please fix this level!

Found another glitch in this level on the way the striped candies fall. When doubling up candy on one side so it shoots up and across, if you make it shoot across the bottom and it hits a falling vertical striped candy on the other side it acts like the popcorn is invisible and won't count as a hit. It seems to be sporadic but I swear some don't seem to hit the popcorn. It appears to pass through it. Same goes if you happen to have both sides filled with striped candy and do a combo and shoot the bottom one on the other side, if the other side has a horizontal striped candy on top and a vertical on the bottom, of course the bottom has to break through the horizontal striped candy but it appears to go through the popcorn. I have played this game a hundred times and it seems to take 4 to 5 hits to break the popcorn. I have managed to get to one popcorn on its last hit numerous times with 2 to 3 moves left but with no candies on the bottom how can one actually win this game now.

Anonymous said...

seem like they are not going to fix it. my strip candy only fall one each corner for every move , so how can it be possible to pass if they is only 25 moves ???

Anonymous said...

Hi everyone, thought you may like to see the reply I got from King.


Thank you for the further feedback.
Our Developers are constantly monitoring our games and take many factors into consideration when making any updates to the game. Every level is always thoroughly tested to make sure that it offers the right balance of challenge and fun and some levels are deliberately a lot more challenging than others - this is part of the game design and the fun!

Achieving 3 stars on every level is always possible but will obviously be a lot more challenging. Earning 1 or 2 stars will still let you beat the level and will not restrict your journey through the Saga.

We also keep a very close eye on player feedback relating to level difficulty, and the Studios study data from our network of players to see whether any levels are perhaps a bit too demanding. With all of this taken into consideration they may, at times decide to make a certain level more or less difficult in the future.

Thank you again for the feedback and rest assured that I've passed your comments onto the Studio.

Have a great day!

Kind Regards
Kimmy
King Customer Care

I am STILL stuck. Good luck!

Five minutes after posting the above I tried again. ITS BEEN FIXED!!! Passed 3 stars. Striped candies falling as before. Happy days...

Anonymous said...

I hate this level, so after tons of tries i used all 3 boosters, 3 hammers, won 5 moves and then 1 switch. Glad to move on.

Anonymous said...

still the same they havent fix the prb maybe is time to move on to another game !

Dieter Heinz said...

Spended 4 hammers to pass the level after 5 attempts

Ruud Piest said...

Yes, they changed by adding 5 moves. No, they they didn't fix it (yet). The striped candies in the cornersd are still falling one at the time, eating our moves very quickly......

Anonymous said...

I think this is the second hardest level in this episode after level 2510. (There are only 30 moves on mobile.) I managed to complete this on the 1st attempt 3 stars. The main problem in this level is to pop the top 2 popcorns. The bottom popcorns block the top popcorns from vertical stripe blasts from the bottom corners. You have to pop the bottom popcorns first before you can hit the top popcorns. If you can start with a color bomb and stripe combo, make sure there are candies of the same color on the top row and hope their blasts are horizontal so that they hit the top popcorns.

Ruud Piest said...

Finally through this 5 day struggle......Lucky to have two chocolate balls next to each other in the very beginning of the game, and lucky to keep on scoring. This level is a complete disaster, it had 3 changes already.....

ironman said...

the designer is retarded by adding 5 extra move does not fix the damn prb stupid !

Anonymous said...

I used a CB booster to match the CB with the helmet and reset until they were close. I did a few matches before I moved the CBs together with a swap. The stripes fell just in time so was able to get it finished. Early this week while I was waiting for the new level. I actually won the jackpot in the daily spin! WOO HOO! Carol the elder

Isitaglitch said...

I still have only 25 moves - impossible. How do others have more moves? I've updated and still only 25 moves.

Emsa8 said...

You will kill me, but I thought the level was FUN! With a little training and few luck, you can come quickly to the bottom. And you need the stripes on the bottom left and right (and a little view in the licorice) ... Often when you combine the stripes on one side, you will hit a stripe on the other side, too. Its a bit of "rhythm" you need. But you will see that you get better and better every time! You don't need boosters, in fact I ran out at the end of 2 moves, but got them as a present with the spinning wheel. But I am sure, some attempts more and no additional moves were needed.

Sami said...

Ok posting cause i want to lol

Howaida Al Hakeem said...

This level is impossiable please fix this game I tried several time with boaster and wth out but it seems like I will never finish it .please fix the game as soon as possiable as my lives seem to finish with no result it is sooooooo hard to complete it or to meet the target and the steppes the game need please fix the game please .hard hard and hard

Howaida Al Hakeem said...

Dears this level is impossiable with this number of moves and the numbers of requirements needed to reach the level it seem to be harder than the hard levels this level need to be fix as soon as possible please do the necessary arrangement to fix the level im so tired of repeating the game with no benefit even with using the boosters please help

Edward Shorey said...

Ok Post for luck if it works

didueverdoubtme said...

I tried fish no good..i then decided to start with a chocolate sprinkle but making sure two of same color were in bottom left or right and that would inmediately clear them and have stripes dropping. One move cleared licorice blockers and one attempt with this method i cleared it all with 6 moves to spare. I had tried for over a day and was always left with 3 or 4 and only once 2!!

Victoria said...

Used all 3 boosters and reset and used when wrap and stripe were at top together to get to popcorn. Had to spin wheel to get 5 extra moves to finish.

Anonymous said...

Now, it's 25 moves not 35. for Android ver.
It's impossible w/o boosters.

Wasn't getting anywhere with this. I once got down to three jellies but one was an untouched popcorn. Mostly it took ages to clear the bottom blockers and getting horizontal stripes down there wasn't always easy. Eventually started with a stripe and hit the colour of one in the two side sections. That got the ball rolling for matching stripes to hit the popcorn. I still needed a hammer to get the last jelly on the main board.

Anonymous said...

I have used boosters, tonnes of extra lives. It takes 5 strikes to clear the popcorn. There just are not enough moves and too many licorice obstacles. I have posted for luck. I have asked for lucky board. I've bee at this for 4 days solid. Must have played 100 times. It's just impossible. Please King, let me through.

Anonymous said...

Come on King. Too many steps and not enough moves. I usually can't even get the stripes to fall this is impossible. Give me a little help here. Give me a lucky board.

Unknown said...

I only get 25 moves and stripes dropping singly (android). As others say it is impossible under these conditions so I've given up trying this level. Just going back to earlier levels to improve my scores. I'll try this level from time to time to see if it's changed, otherwise this is as far as I go in CC.

Suzie O said...

Computer has 30 moves

Lucia said...

Nonsense. The stripes don't fall every time, so I don't get nearly enough of them to deal with the popcorn. This stupid level is impossible.

Anonymous said...

King this level is impossible with the number of moves available. I have played all week long, using boosters, extra lives, extra moves and without hammers this is impossible.
Give us a chance. Let the stripes drop more often, give extra moves please.

slychard said...

I tried before coming here and as my game progressed and managed two color bombs I switched together, early in the game mind you, I imagined a first game luck board. I'm in like Flynn. Then I remembered that being "in like Flynn" is not a good thing. The stripes dropped inconsistently and I actually used a stripe combo appropriately so not to affect the dropping stripe in other side yet it exploded anyway. This computer program is a fraud.

Hey, CC owners, get it in your thick heads, I WILL NEVER SPEND A DIME ON YOUR SITE, so quit trying to make me by playing unfair.

slychard said...

I call bull. Just tried again and the game has changed since this example. I call total CC chicanery. As usual. What a fraud. I'll beat , since I've made this far, but I feel for the folks out back, they will be skewered for cash. Don't fork out. Just don't. I never will.

Danielle said...

just started this level last night.......UGH!

Anonymous said...

I've come here for tips for quite a while, but never posted. I frequently update the app after reading comments & finding out a bug has been fixed, so I tried that on this level on my Android. It has made the level so much worse. Like others commented, it drops the striped candy even less frequently than before & it has gone from 30 to 25 moves, when 30 wasn't even enough to begin with. I also encountered the bug previously mentioned where I swapped a wrapped with a stripe along the far side & it did nothing to the popcorn at the top or the ones at the bottom. I've plodded along on other levels even when others said it was impossible, but there truly is no point in continuing to play until this level is fixed. Hoping for an update soon.

Another impossible level. Why do they do this? It's not fun. Fingers crossed for a lucky board but very little hope.

Rick said...

I passed it with 3 moves to spare (there are only 16 moves now on Android and IOS devices). What I did was start with a CB combo which hit the mixer once. Then I bought a UFO for 20 gold bars which placed a wrap near the mixer which hit it twice. (The main problem here is the mixer which keeps on placing 5-layer blocker on the main exit for the ingredients.) Then I hammer the mixer twice and it's gone. Not all I have to do is to facilitate the exit of the ingredients amidst licorice. Pleae note that one ingredient has to exit first before the next one appears.

Lorraine said...

OMG fro m one bnloody level straight into an other. Bought my way out of the last one but not again. Will go play my other games before i do that again ;(

i have been on this a week and finally looked at help. i have only 25 moves. the side stripe candy falls one at a time not both sides at once. 23 moves is not enough to get the popcorns popped one at a time so i have to hit 24 times or more to get them popped with inside moves to bring them down i have to bring each one down by hitting inside 4 times for 4 stripes. 4 x 4 = 16 then 4 x 4 = 16 for the popcorn That is 32 and I have 25 moves. what the hell gives here

Frances Mendenhall said...

I've been playing on Android and dispensers dropping one striped candy per move. Today I played on PC and dispensers dropped 4 stripes after firing the combo. Done.

Looks like I'm going to waste the 2hrs of extra lives I just won on this one

Wendy Green said...

Terrible, I just dont get the stripes at the bottom and certainly never 2, so how is this possibly. grrr time to go I think, I just hate unfairness

Getting closer when I start with a CB the color of at least 2 of the jellies in the lower side boxes.

Finally completed , on PC.

dirty vegas said...

The stripes fall one at a time and are often useless because of the licorice ,a few more moves would be helpful .

Heidi said...

Both bottom sides seem faulty for me. I get only one stripe to fall on the left, then one stripe will fall on the right. By the time I get 2 stripes on one side my board is full of crap and I am out of moves. There is no chance of winning with the set up I have.

Heidi said...

Also, I am playing this on facebook on pc and it starts with only 30 moves.

liloldlady said...

Moves reduced from 35 to 25. So frustrating and so unfair to the other players!
