Candy Crush Saga Level 3004 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 3004 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Although the title of this post says these are tips to pass without boosters I don't believe that level 3004 is possible without boosters.
There are too many blockers to deal with on a restricted board and not enough moves to get all the yellow candies.
You really need to clear the middle column so that the lucky candies can drop down the middle and onto the bottom conveyor where they are easier to deal with. Stripe/wrap combos will work quite well, as will a colourbomb/wrap combo. But best of all is a double colourbomb combo.
I used the colourbomb from Mort's helmet, or the spaceship, plus a colourbomb combo and kept backing out of the game until the two colourbombs were together, this combo will clear everything and collect the yellows along the top conveyor so that all you need to do is get more lucky candies dropping by making matches that leave room for them to drop.
If you don't know how to reset the board to get the boosters together follow these simple steps.
Open the game and DON'T MAKE A MOVE. If the board is not to your liking click on the pink cogwheel bottom left then on the red door to take you out of the game. Then try again.
You can do this as many times as you like until the board is the way you want it and you won't lose any lives or boosters as long as you don't make any moves.
Check to make sure you're not losing boosters after the first try just to be sure as very occasionally it doesn't work.

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.

Not as hard as 2999. Just need to get the central colum free. Did this with just helmet boosters. Managed after a few tries

Ugh.... very hard level I have tried just about everything including side by side chocolate candy bombs and nope..... posting for luck

Emsa8 said...

Even with full space dash and double CB (same way Cookie described it) I had some yellows left... And not even labeled as hard level?? This is the first time that even Mrs Cookie recommends using space dash...

I am not talented/lucky enough to ever have the helmet, so I used the lucky candies, and hammers. I consider myself lucky I only had to use 3. Terrible level. - hbk

Lisa said...

To the anonymous above me. Getting the helmet/space dash is super simple. Scroll all the back to level 1. Replay and win the level as many times as needed to get the helmet/space dash. Then scroll all the way back up. Or just close the app completely and open to play. Also another trick I just learned to keep your helmet/dash if you are going to lose. Force turn off your phone. When it turns back on you will have lost a life. But should have kept the helmet/dash.
That being said. Posting for luck!! I am stuck. Have tied all ways and come close, but didn’t have a spare hammer or hand switch.

Can’t even pass with all the boosters I’ve used!

Lisa Ellis said...

And I passed a few hours later. With what would have been a full dash if it was dash time and not helmet time. Boosters wasted but now to 3005!

I have used soooo many boosters & life! Pissed. Videos on youtube showing 33moves while I had only 25. Closest after boosters I came to was 2 more Yellows. Grrrrrrrrr......

What am I doing wrong? I have cleared the center column many times but the special candies are not falling onto the playing area

Robyn Lor said...

I have been stuck on this hideous level! It is NOT fun, just tedious!!! I've used space dash. Double color bombs BUT not enough yellows!! Uggggh. Posting for luck because, once again, on the verge of quitting!! Too many wasted hours.

Robyn Lor said...

it’s quite amazing when you clear the middle column and no special candies fall down very frustrating. I guess I’m posting for luck. :)

Jax said...

It took me quite a few days but I finally did it without any boosters. I just concentrated on getting the candies falling in the middle column and I didn't worry about anything else.

Missy said...

Thank you, Lisa! That helped me and I passed it!

Not nearly as hard as I expected. One thing I've learned is that the difficulty level indicated is pretty random, and doesn't seem to reflect the actual difficulty.

What I did was start with a wrapped-striped booster, and kept resetting the game until I had them side-by side on the left-hand side of the board. That at lest got me started. And as other posters have noted, you want to clear the center column and use the horizontal-striped candies to hit the center column as the checked candies are right above. It took me maybe half a dozen tries to get it, with five moves left.

I keep loading up in boosters!! Following the tips!! Still can't pass. Again more money, or days waiting for the lucky board!!

Cherrelle Piotraschke said...

I have played old levels over & over to collect boosters with seasons stocking!! I have started the level combining color bombs!!! I have focused on the middle!! None of the tips work!!!! It's obvious that it requires a lucky board!! I used up my lucky candy boosters!!! It's been 3 days. Nothing works! I hate this game!!!

Cherrelle Piotraschke said...

I have also restarted the level 20 plus times just to line up 2 color bombs to start this level!!! I tried every tip multiple times. None work!!! I have hit many lucky candies with stripes & they don't turn yellow!!! That's most of the issue!! You hardly get any uellow!! I can open the board with double color bombs, but if you don't get any yellow you can't pass. I believe the tips everyone talks about only work because they got the lucky board!! This game isn't fun anymore!!

Cherrelle Piotraschke said...

It doesn't matter what you do. It comes sown to when you get the lucky board!! I have done everything,even used the lucky candy boosters!! I have played with no boosters, combined color bombs on my first move!! All with the same results!! Unless you BUY EXTRA moves & hammers, you won't pass!! That's why so many people quit!! I think they are the smart ones!!

So if I don't buy boosters I'm stuck here. I've gotten this far and have not spent a dime and I'm not gonna start now. Guess I'll be stuck here a while!

Go to level 606. It's quick & easy to win to get the helmet.

I just don't get this Space Dash thing. I over level 3000 and never seen a Space Dash. I followed Lisa's instructions (above) and have played level 1 over and over, but I get nothing but boredom! Maybe some users just do not get the Space Dash.

I posted the above comment. Just wanted to add that I am on the Android app, iOS app, and Windows app.

I don't think PC or laptop users get it. Just mobile devices. I may be wrong.

i finished this level in @ 5 moves with chocoball/stripe combos. Otherwise it's impossible, but stripe/sprinkle eats its lunch.
