Candy Crush Saga Level 2542 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2542 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Clear the jelly in 30 moves to complete level 2542 Candy Crush Saga.
This is a fairly straightforward jelly level, but you need to clear the chocolate to have a chance of passing it.
First try to work as close to the bottom of the board as you can as cascades are common and this will help to clear the chocolate as well as the jelly.
Try to clear at least one piece of chocolate with every move to prevent it from growing and blocking your moves. Once the chocolate is gone it won't come back.
Don't waste moves trying to grow the frog as you don't need it to complete the level, however if you manage to make a colourbomb it is worth using it on the frog colour to grow it, this way you can use the frog if you need to clear up any hard to hit jellies.

On my iPhone 20 moves and on my tablet only 17 moves?

Just I reloaded my iPhone and now I have here too 17 moves. This is more than hard. For this you need a super lucky board.

Just this minute after my post above I got a CC update and now have Magic Dash on my tablet for the next 40 hours. I guess it pays to not start playing too early in the
morning.

Sharon, I got the helmet a couple days ago and it will expire in 12 hours. I guess they don't give it at the same time for all of us. Carol the elder

I'll gladly take the day of then. I got it on one Android tablet and awhile later on the the other Android tabet but not on my phone this time. But, not complaining.

Frustrating level. 17 moves to clear the jelly. Once again it comes down to a lucky board.

Play on the computer and you will have 30 moves just like Cookie.

Hi Carol Thanks for the reply. That's usally when I get it also. Sometime Monday. I just assumed that the Magic Dash was over for us. I saw a post that someone on PC had it now and I was so happy for them.

I'm tired of King always changing things. Cookie has 30 moves. I could beat it with 30 also, but only am given 17 on my iPhone. Phone games should not be different from desktop versions!!

Even Cookie used 30 moves to complete the level and how does King expect us to finish the level in just 17 moves......NOT FAIR KING.....

Much easier on PC than iPhone/iPad :)

Three boosters and two hammers, stripe and color bomb to open up the board.

Diane K said...

I gave up on my phone and went to desktop. Alas, I only had 17 moves there too.

Danielle said...

I've used color bombs and still not even close to winning. UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kai Q said...

Android has nerf it back to 30 moves. Just passed it wo using boosters.

Only 17 moves? Not enough to clear board! Ughh!

Is this level even possible? 17 moves is not enough. I have only one lollipop and that doesn't get me far. This is one of my least favorite levels to date. Boring, boring, boring.

Jim Shaw said...

Level 2542 is ridiculous! Not nearly enough moves given. I have used up every booster I have and still have got near to completing this level. NOY FUN!!

Impossible with only 17 moves fed up

Stuck on this level for weeks now. Sick of it, no boosters left, refuse to pay King for any. 17 moves is definitely not enough to complete this level.

Ridiculous.. lucky board needed i guess..

Starting to hate myself for continuing to torture myself with this game. Even playing previous levels for boosters (which is sometimes the only way to pass a level) is becoming a pain, because there are so many crappy levels. And reducing moves from 30 to 17... screw that for a bad joke.
