Candy Crush Saga Level 2990 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2990 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
The start of level 2990 is all important, if the special candies are all destroyed in the first cascade you'll have little chance of clearing all the jelly in the few moves available.
Wait until the board settles and see what combos you have left on the board.
A double colourbomb combo is one of the best combos and also a stripe/wrap combo. Either one of these will give you a really good start on clearing the jelly because they will give you loads of fish!
Fish from the fishing floats are the only things that will clear this level for you, you have no chance of clearing all the jelly in the moves available if you can't hit the floats with combos at least 2 or 3 times.
Hitting the floats with a single stripe or wrap won't help much but a combo, especially one that goes along the whole row, will help a lot.
The more times you can hit the floats with combos the better chance you have of completing level 2990.

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.

i was stuck on this level for 6 days :( thank you for the tip, double chocolate bombs is the secret.

Kat Murphy said...

Yes,two double colorbombs switched together helped a LOT, which I had gotten with the full Christmas stocking. Was able to use combos to hit the fish floats, and had to use two lollipop hammers to get the hard to get jellies in the upper part of the board. Tough level, but not impossible. Good luck All! Till Wednesday~ (yay I can say that now that I have caught up lol)

Argh !!!! still stuck, thrown everything at it ( incl tips above), still getting nowhere. :(

Why is 2975 my last level? I see others talking about levels into 3000's

Rick said...

Although I passed all the levels on the next episode (levels 2901 to 3005) on my first go and all with 3 stars except the timed level 2999 (2 stars) and 2.93 average stars , I won't say it's easy. The hardest is 3000 which has fish as the order for the first time. I have to use a lot of boosters and buy extra time to completed it on the first go. The only timed level, 2999, is not that hard.
Till next Wednesday.

completed level 2991 to 3005

this is a hard episode,
I used so many boosters.

Rick said...

The key in passing level 3000 is the wraps. The dispensers on the top dispense wraps and stripes alternately, although they don’t always dispense them. Sometimes you can have a stripe/wrap combo, sometimes not. But the wraps when they explode, hit the floats twice and so send twice as many fish. The board is so restricted by the floats that moves are limited. If you can make a color bomb/wrap combo, that will give you a lot of fish.

I just finished this episode and now I see that the next episode is also unlocked.
I thought I was doing good sneaking the playing time this morning while staying with family. So, I guess I'll have to wait a couple of days to play the next one.
Good luck everyone!

Question for Rick - what is the reward for passing all the levels in an episode on the first try?

Gil said...

Once nothing and double nothing...

Rick said...

The reward from Candy Crush is a whole episode where the levels are represented by golden balls with gold crown. The reward for me by passing it on the first try is that I don't have to do a second, third, fourth, etc. try anymore, saving me time and effort.

carlton said...

No blog for the next episode?Rick I have to disagree with you..i found level 3000 rather easy ..however the timed level was quite difficult maybe 7 or 8 tries. ALSO was expecting some type of fanfare for reaching level 3000.

Rick said...

Carlton, you may be right. I passed both levels on the first go and got only 2 stars in 2999, the timed level, but got 3 stars in 3000. I thought 3000 was harder because of the required 333 fishes, unless King lowered the order.

Ange 123456 said...

Nightmare level. Just can’t get that lucky board like in the video. Luck or a miracle is needed here 😢😢

Bookboss said...

Annoying level when all boosters and space dash are used automatically on first move. Lots of luck needed.please!!

Carol the elder said...

Horrible level. After many tries I used a lot of hammers to finish the jellies in the top corners. I need to build up my hammer supply again. Sharon, I also had the next episode open and after reading about it here, I may wait until I get back home to Georgia. One more day and I'm on the road again.

Anonymous said...

Having issues. If you start with boosters they get eaten in the cascades. What do you mean starting with 2 CB?

Gil said...

Completed next episode, levels 2991-3005 ALL 15 LEVELS ON FIRST TRY WITH 3 STARS!
First time that I managed to do that, so it must be an easy episode.
To complete that, I used more boosters than I use to (about 10 hand switches and 5 hammers in total), mainly to form CB in order to increase score.
I didn't use any advice as there wasn't any.

I didn't get any reward for that from king...

Rick said...

Congrats, Gil. I almost did it, too. I got them all on the first try and 3 stars on all except the timed level, 2 stars. I just did not deliberately tried to boost my score to get 3 stars, especially on the timed level.
So, the PC and mobile are now on the same episode.

Gil said...

Thanks Rick, I was extremely close to finish the timed level with 2 stars, got the third star from the fish after I completed the level.

Rick said...

Gil, I replayed 2999 and finally got 3 stars on it. It's not easy to get 3 stars on that level. I think I played it about 10 times to get the 3 stars.

Sage here: posting for luck. This is a hard one.

Posting for luck. All my boosters get destroyed in the opening cascade so there’s no way to reset till two sprinkle balls are together. And could we please restrict the comments to the level we are on? I don’t care about ones I haven’t got to yet? And I really don’t care if someone else is already there.

Anonymous said...

This is a level which requires nothing but luck. And luck is simply not with you until you post a comment here.

Stephen Adams said...

Yes, this is a very difficult level. Having watched the video, a key difference I am experiencing is that when I hit the fishing floats with combos after the first automatic cascade, a massive proportion of the fish hit the blockers at the bottom and nowehere else. Obviously these do need to be cleared but by time I start getting fish to hit the jelly in the top left ad right corners the licorice is appearing and you need multiple hits to clear these as licorice is falling very often to block the jelly being cleared by the fish.

Lots of luck needed ....

Gil said...

Rick,I started level 2999 with the full SD + CB, S/Wr and fish of my own boosters.
I switched the first CB with single color and the second with Wrap. This move blow the third CB, so, it didn't help to get the hard popcorns in the sides, but for sure it helped to get the points for the third star.
In the end, I used 2 hammers to blow the top left popcorn, and a second fish ate the last jelly, that gave me the third star.

Gil said...

Yep.

Carol the elder-I gave in and ended up doing the next episode the following morning. Be glad you're going home to Georgia. I'm driving north with my son right now. The temperature is -34 C where he lives. Snow as far as you can see right now.
Sharon

Carol the elder said...

Sharon, please be safe! I'm in a motel in Tennessee right now so tomorrow will be a relatively short drive. I gave in to the new episode too, but still have two levels to go. I wanted to do it while I still had the space dash. Now I need to play a couple levels to get the helmet so I can finish. Happy New Year to all my CC friends! 🍷🎉

Bec said...

3004 is hardest, save all your lollipop crushers for that one. Otherwise quite easy - unless they change things

Anonymous said...

Waiting for the lucky board. Please king I need help on this one!!!!

Emsa8 said...

Just being curious: there are SO MANY levels depending on luck and/or the right start and/or knowing some tricks. Especially timed levels can be crucial and you have no time to think each move over. You can be 'best tennis player' with training - but how is it possible always getting every level in the first try in a game depending on luck? Sometimes I think you must train and watch a level on a second device to get almost every level the first try. Or have millions if boosters knit even they sometimes don't help in every situation)

Emsa8 said...

Knit = but

Don't start with any boosters!! When the green candies fall down, you normally will get 1 or 2 CBs. If you are very lucky, the 2 CBs are next to each other. Hint: if you don't do anything you can reset (going back and start again) without losing a life until you have the double CB (helps very much winning this level)

Emsa8 said...

So by mere brain power ("I don't want to repeat, therefore I do it with the first try") you win all levels... In order to save time and effort. And then you wrote sometimes, you repeated levels when you did't get 3 stars (until you have them)... interesting approach

Dieter Heinz said...

A question to all who are crying here, I passed all the levels with the first go:
We all know, that this is not possible, we all have playing the most of the levels a lot of time. The only way is to use a lot of boosters. But where is the fun, when you are ready with the whole episode in some minutes? I have always only a few boosters and I don't buy any, but I am also in the last episode like you. Good, I need more time, but I have the most time fun.
You can play a game or you can buy it. I think playing is the better way for me.

impossible level. Everything explodes therefore making it hard to get 2 colour bombs together. Pretty frustrating after many days of getting nowhere. Posting for luck!

Emsa8 said...

Ps: after the double CBs, double wraps near the bottom are very helpful. Nice against the blockers at the bottom and many fishes arrive. After 50? 60? 70? senseless attempts level solved with 8 moves left.

Really really need luck on this one. Out of boosters. What a waste. Help cookie!

Tammy Agosta said...

This level is complete nonsense!

Emsa8 said...

Thank you, Dieter, for your words, you are speaking out exactly what I think, too... What a hell of pressure instead of fun it must be for them....

Emsa8 said...

If there are not 2 CBs or 2 CBs are not together and you are playing on mobile, just reset the game and try again. You won't lose a life!

Finding it impossible to pass this level. Just not enough time. Will have to wait for the lucky board.

IPad: 13 moves
Android: 25 moves,

Tammy Agosta said...

I’ve managed to reset until I have 2 color bombs together and I still can’t do anything. Every time a fish hits a licorice in the top corners another one drops down and covers the jelly. I tried using hammers on them and I still just got more licorice. I don’t understand how to clear it when there’s always licorice over the jelly.

Tammy Agosta said...

I rewatched cookies video and I see that doesn’t happen to her. She gets regular candies once she clears the licorice.

cobbiah said...

You get boosters. Hope u are not new to this

Gil said...

Both if you are so wrong.

Anonymous said...




Well candy crush I think you finally got me to quit the game after 2990 levels - you are making it too hard to pass these levels. You have managed to take the fun out of it.

Started 2999 and 3000 with nearly full Christmas stocking and won both with 1rst try and without any other booster needed (2999 with 3 seconds left, 3000 with the last move) and both with 3 stars. With stocking, it's OK. But without it, both levels must be hard.

Emsa8 said...

At least I didn't need "full SD + CB, S/Wr and fish of my own boosters" for 2999 😀

Emsa8 said...

But anyway... congratulations to you for your 15 levels 1st try/3stars... I could never do this, there are always levels where I even fail "fully armed with boosters"

Getting 3 stars is totally meaningless in this game in case you haven't noticed after playing 3000+ rounds lol

I am so sick of this level.

I agree. Tired of the bragging. No way they win first try WITHOUT ANY BOOSTERS.

Still stuck.

Finding this one impossible please help

Gil said...

I never said I did it without boosters.
I said several times in the past that with the SD it is differnt game, nearly too easy,but, I take what I get.
And, never spend a dime.
I collect boosters while progressing, for example, I have 240 gold bars that I don't really use.

Tammy Agosta said...

After spending about a week on this level, I reset until I had two color bombs together and I got close so I had to buy 5 extra moves and use 6 hammers but I'm finally past this stupid, stupid level. I was ready to give up on this game. This is the first time that I had regular candies in the top corners too instead of constant licorice.

Another SHIT level brought to us by the fucking morons at KING. Greedy pricks just looking to sell boosts. They win the assholes of the year award!

Just keep resetting the level until you get a double colour bomb.

this one is impossible with so few moves. I am beginning to think its time I gave it up this one is so boring!

Emsa8 said...

Respect and gratulation! Even with a full load boosters I could never do it all the time this way. There are too many luck-and surprise levels for me... In this episode I had 8 times 1st try/3stars, but the rest was partly very very tedious and hard and with many repetitions

Hoping for much needed luck with this one.

Never had a helmet said...

1st try no boosters. Just tried to make combos.
