Candy Crush Saga Level 2828 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2828 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 2828 is the first hard level of this episode, you have to grow 6 popcorns into coiourbombs in 28 moves.
The popcorns are provided by the lucky candies which will drop from the dispensers at each side once the cream blockers are cleared.
The spawner at the bottom also needs to be cleared as quickly as possible to prevent it from filling the board with blockers. At the same time as you are clearing the spawner you should also look for either a stripe/wrap combo in the top part of the board to clear the cream blockers under the dispensers, or a double colourbomb combo.
You can use a colourbomb/stripe combo to clear the cream blockers under the dispensers, but this will almost always leave you with a popcorn in one of the 3 squares under the dispensers, which will prevent more lucky candies dropping onto the board.
Ideally you want to have the side columns open so the lucky candies can drop down into play before you change them to popcorns.
Once you have some popcorns on the board use wrapped candies to grow them, or a double colourbomb combo. Try to avoid getting popcorns in the top columns if you can.
A lucky candy booster may be helpful, but can also be a hindrance if you end up with popcorns in the top part of the board.

If the level you play is different from the one here it is because the developers have changed it since I played and I have no control over this. Please let me know in the comments and I will try to change it.

Even with two choc balls together I keep getting popcorns in the upper side columns. After losing a lot of lives I decided to use a checkmark booster. That took a few tries but finally got some checkmark-turned-popcorns into the main part of the board. Got a few chocolate balls next to stripes and cleared all the popcorns I needed, even a couple inside the upper side columns. Used one lollipop at the end. This is, indeed, a hard level without boosters.

I went an entire game with only regular candies dropping out of the dispensers and no lucky candies. How can I beat a level that requires lucky candies if they don't give me any?

Down to 32 moves now. Impossible level.

Impossible! Help!!

Danielle said...

What the heck Candy Crush....are you trying to be funny with this level.....no luck at all....I even got two color bombs together....nothing!!!!

Anonymous said...

The only way I finally got this level was with a Space Dash plus checkmark booster. Impossible otherwise.

This level must be a joke. IMPOSSIBLE

Surprised there aren't more comments as this level is stumping me. Been playing for several days and nowhere near.Getting pretty fedup of it TBH-more moves are needed or SOMETHING!!!

Anonymous said...

I really don't understand how on earth anyone has completed this level ?? No matter what I try I get popcorn in the 'lucky candy' columns which then prevents others appearing. There have been extremely difficult levels before this that I have been stuck on for weeks but nothing like this. impossible !!!

WELL!! After posting above this morning about being stumped, I had another go at 2828 over lunch and got a lucky board YAY!! At last. Quite a lot of candy bombs seemed to appear(I started with NO boosters, 32 moves)and paired with stripes they hammered the board and got the popcorns down into the bottom of the board.I got x2 pairs of CBs together too.I finished off with 1 hammer-only really because I was afraid of running out of moves! Don't give up Crushers-if I can do it, you certainly can.Good luck.

This one really sucks! Tried the lucky check booster and so many came down it clogged up the whole board.

Hard level. Used a checkmark booster and got so many that I ignored the two lucky candy columns. Concentrated on destroying evil spawner first. Then a stripe/wrap and a chocolate sprinkle/stripe combo. With three moves left got a chocolate sprinkle combo from two popcorns and after setting it off had three popcorns only needing one more hit so used a lollipop hammer on one. 1st try, one move left, three stars.

I give up it is impossible Luck is the only way and lately I don't have any luck.

Robyn Lor said...

Ready to quit. This level sucks!! Plus, can no longer play on my laptop. It says my driver is no longer compatible. Wth??? Anyone else experience this? I think it's finally time to put my candy crushing aside. Tooo many wasted hours!

Bear with me said...

Used a checkmark booster, however one of the ended up blocking one of the columns so I ended to use several hammers to clear it and ‘ripen a few others to get the appropriate number in the allotted moves.

judy bettleyon said...

Absolutely rediculous.... not even getting close in 32 moves..can't even get popcorns let alone grow them...most fun

margaret said...

Here we go again!!!another level cc doesnt want pass...posting for luck

Carol the elder said...

Thanks, Sharon. The space helmet plus check booster did it on the second try. I also had to use the hammer on the mixer plus a couple swaps.

Anonymous said...

Ugh!! Have the side columns cleared but the popcorn still stay in the upper side! Luck please!!

KiKi said...

Unreal level to say the least...have tried different boosters without any luck...as always waiting for that lucky board...tap,tap,tap tried ck booster & they end up in top & bottom middle of board & of course only horizontal stripes! Ugh!!

Cher said...

Here we go again guys

steve said...

been on it for days now can't find a way to get popcorn down every time I try it blocks the column nearly every time come on cc lucky board needed!

Kat said...

This morning needed 4 with 31 moves. I swear yesterday was 6. Play on mini. Space dash and check booster did the trick

Saartje said...

Yes
Yesterday 6
Today 4
Still impossible

Anonymous said...

Just done this level, as the game has totally changed, while I was playing it. Gone from needing 6 popcorns to 4 and instead of the columns just one square. It’s gone from practically impossible to easy, not that I’m complaining lol ��

Screen changed since playing this morning. Posting for luck because I really need it now.

Cher said...

All good now very acheavable. So they do listen to us.

What is happening at Candy Crush? The board that I have to play doesn't look anything like the board in your video. My board has 2 windows at the top where , when hit, it is a popcorn. It requires only 4 popcorns to be grown into bombs but with all my playing I haven't gotten 1? But really WHY A DIFFERENT BOARD?

Anonymous said...

The moment i cleared the blocker under the dispenser, it immediately turned into popcorn, sealing up the dispenser. How to blast the popcorn at that position? F you, King. Your company deserves to close down before Christmas.

margaret said...

My board has changed to..problem I'm having is making enough stripes where they should be to hit the popcorn..posting for luck

Jenxx said...

Yay, finally they changed the board today and did it on my 2nd attempt....after days of trying THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! King! Really never thought I’d get through this one!

Ruby Lewis said...

I hope my screen changes soon I restarted over and over again

Kas C said...

it changed again in the last 12 hours. Still hard tho.
28 moves/4 popcorns. Only one falls on each side at a time. But it looks like the only way to break the meringue it color bomb/stripe from the side. It you hit it from the bottom it instantly turns into popcorn and blocks the way, so you have to break it so high up. Uhg

Kas C said...

Lol

Thanks for the comment re hitting the blocker under the dispenser from the side. That worked!

Why hasn't my board changed yet? I have restarted several times.

Anonymous said...

I get a number of stripe and wraps but the stripes never hit anything relevant. Going to try the space dash and I have a few check marks left. Hope it works before I run out of checks.

Anonymous said...

Site says 40 moves. I only get 32 on my phone. Impossible!

Missy said...

I did it!! First clear the blocker. Then I got a sprinkle/sprinkle and that brought down the lucky candies. Once those come down you can use wrapped and stripes to pop the popcorn.
I also used a sprinkle/stripe at the beginning and that brought down the lucky candies. But I didn’t pop the popcorn in time.
You just can’t unblock the cream blockers one at a time (I don’t think) because the popcorn blocks the dispenser. I hope this helps! 🙂

Zolug said...

Impossible, posting for luck.

Linda Voris said...

I thought the previous level was hard. Dear Lord this one beats that one for impossible. the Popcorns keep blocking the portals and don't drop down into the board at all.'

Anonymous said...

so hard, posting for luck for this board..

Stephanie Bailey said...

Posting for luck. Seems impossible

cazzie64 said...

Finally cleared the columns with no blockers and no special candies dropped so no popcorn ☹ ridiculous and now very boring level

Frustrated said...

I got the same message yesterday. Are they trying to make people quit playing?

Anonymous said...

On both iOs and Android devices I only have 32 moves to destroy 6 popcorns, while all the posted videos have 40. In addition, no matter what I use to destroy the cream, a popcorn appears vs a check mark. Extremely frustrating!!

Anonymous said...

Started with a stripe/wrap booster and reset to get them together in the top so I could take out all 6 tube blocks at one time. Obviously killed the spawner next. Made a mistake later of using a sprinkle/stripe while mystery candies were in the tubes, so they changed into popcorns. Tried again, same stripe/wrap starter, and added in a mystery candy booster. Was careful not to fire a combo with mystery candies in the tube. Add a bit of luck, and I won. The mystery candies from the booster did block the board a bit. Might have been able to do it without the mystery booster if I'd been careful and only fired a combo with candies in the tube.

This is impossible posting for luck!

My board hasn't changed on pc or phone - still 6 popcorn needed in 32 moves. Getting extremely bored now and thinking of moving to a different game! They offer all different bonuses but no good if you can't move around the board. King sort yourself out!

Kevin said...

So they've changed it on Android this morning. Only 3 popcorns required now and a less restricted board. Passed it first time with no boosters. Hallelujah. Onward...

My board still hasn't changed!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cherrelle Piotraschke said...

I can't believe how ridiculous this level is!! Space dash boosters are a waste!! The only thing I get in the top portals is popcorn!! How am I suppose to open those??!! I think king wins, I am done

Cherrelle Piotraschke said...

I can't believe how ridiculous this level is!! Space dash boosters are a waste of time!! I keep getting popcorn blockers in the portals!!! How am I suppose to open those?!! So sick of these levels!! I think you win king, I am done

Cherrelle Piotraschke said...

Every time I clear the frosting in the portals that drop lucky candies, I get a popcorn!! Every single time!! Making this level impossible!!! Fix this please!!

Cherrelle Piotraschke said...

Regardless of how or when I clear frosting from the portals I get a popcorn!!! EVERY TIME I play!!

Anonymous said...

Use a checkmark booster and also concentrate on getting rid of the evil spawner asap. Forget about the side panels.

Anonymous said...

Was stuck as a pig on this one until the advice about hitting the blocks from the side. Thanks all.

Tblackmon said...

Don’t know about anyone else but I have popcorns behind the blockers in the top corner. Have to get one of those for a lucky candy to drop. Nothing like the video at all. Think it’s going to be frustrating!

liloldlady said...

Wow really hard level. Hoping for a lucky board.

VIVIEN said...

I have an entirely different game to the one shown help.

Lind Maitan said...

Got rid of spray et easy but can’t get left side popcorn open. Luck please

Lind Maitan said...

Yes I have a different board

Fred Bear said...

Finally, over a week of trying and I'm through!
It took the 3 extra moves bonus, a hammer and a switch.
Most annoying level ever.
Candycrush is becoming very very tedious.

Again frustrating

Hubblebubble said...

I got the helmet then reset the board until the stripe was next to the wrap high up on the board. Setting this off cleared the coloums and the lucky candies fell down. I then cleared the spawner and then concentrated on hitting the popcorn.

Stupid and boring level.... posting for luck

I can’t even get a damn popcorn wtf?????
