Candy Crush Saga Level 3161 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 3161 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 3161 is a dual task level, you have to collect 5 ingredients and clear the jelly to complete the level. 
The first ingredient is on the board in the middle section and the second one will likely drop into one of the side sections in the first few moves. If you can clear the blockers each side of the middle ingredient you will get striped candies dropping from the dispensers which will be helpful.
Once you have collected the first ingredient you can ensure that any further ones drop into the middle section where they are easiest to collect. To do this just make the move after the ingredient has dropped off the board in the middle section, then the ingredient will have to drop there.
You will only have 2 ingredients on the board at any one time so one has to be collected before you get another.
There are only 13 moves so every one must count. You need a fair amount of luck and a good start to complete level 3161 in so few moves and remember as well as collecting the ingredients you have to clear the jelly too. Look for chances to make colourbombs and once you have used one it is much easier to make more. Colourbombs are probably the only thing that will be enough to clear level 3161 is so few moves, but once you can get some cascades going you'll have a good chance.

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.

A word of caution - I used a cb combo to start and the fruit ended up getting ‘caught’ on the shelf between the bottom left and bottom center sections.

Carol the elder said...

I reset many times and finally got two CB’s together. Luckily I did not get a cherry caught as Bear with me did. I was able to keep all the fruit in the center. I used the hammer twice to drop them at the bottom.

They have now reduced the moves to 20. I couldn't even win at 35! Unbelievable!

So unfair reducing the number of moves this way! Posting for luck just the same.

Only 20 moves instead of 35 is really rediculious.
Please help us out.

20 moves is impossible! I've been working on it for 3 days already!

Anonymous said...

Impossible. And boring. There's often only one move, so the entire game is a bunch of wasted moved. This episode is horrible.

Mezzanine said...

Horrible horrible. This level is using all my tools and getting me nowhere. I wish I knew how people get 2 CBs!

2sweet said...

Ridiculous level not possible in 20 moves! Boring also

Another f you level from King. Guess there are not many of us left. I’ll give this level a few more tries and then that’s it for me too. Just ridiculous. I feel stupid for playing it.

Anonymous said...

I am amazed at the players who can get all of these levels on the first try. I’m truly happy for them. But by the time we get to the levels, the numbers are drastically lowered. Therefore we don’t have the opportunity to get done on first try. Totally not fair to us. Please don’t do this to us king. Dianne

Posting for luck. With levels like this one, my addiction is waning. Hear that King? Marj

Posting for luck. Time to quit?

Tammy Agosta said...

2sweet - not all of us have the option to go back and win levels and get the space dash. I don't know how King decides who gets that and who doesn't but there are quite a few of us who have never had the option.

I hate this CC approach to drive us mad to take our money. So I can tell you how to play with no limits of lives.
Just change the date. Quit the app, Put the clock on a future day, relaunch the app and you will find all your lives.
Then you can reset the real date. This is my answer to the King’s behaviour. Now it’s your turn to get crazy guys.

McT said...

Can't get the moves to line up....very difficult...when candies drop like this, it once again becomes based on luck, luck, luck....this level should not be as hard as it is....hoping for a lucky board, as things seem to be lately...

Posting for luck and a lucky board not enough moves

Anonymous said...

I have been playing this level for too many days now. Wasted money/boosters. I refuse to spend anymore on this game. So so bored of it. Do not know why I keep coming back to the game. Will stick with the Word games instead!!!

Lisa Raynor said...

I've noticed the 1st try is a lucky board and if you manage to get boosters to start you can usually pass on the 1st try.
I'm stuck on this one 3 days though

Sandra Meerkerk said...

AWFUL LEVEL!!!

Impossible ugh I hate this level can't even come close..not enough moves AGAIN!!

wendy stephens said...

Posting for luck. I enjoyed this level for the first 20 tries, but then it gets boring. I think it's cheating for King to change the rules of the game after it's already been presented to players. In other words, taking away moves after the level is already on the board. That's like changing the rules in the middle of a game. Not fair and very frustrating!

Developed the level for 35 moves then reduced to 20. Leaders win we lose! BS!

I have been on this level for days and it is not even considered a hard level

Grandma said...

Having trouble with this one. LUCKY BOARD PLEASE

Lou said...

Agree with the comments above.
Why give the ‘leaders’ more moves then penalise us coming up through the ranks by reducing them, most unfair,
Also,agree that the first board on a new game is always better than the rest, gives false hope so folk then pay!
Need that first board back again please.

Casinos are more honest, they don't change the rules whilst you are playing...

Crush Them Candies said...

Well it is with deep regret that my Candy Crush days are coming to an end. I have been stuck on this stupid level for days. I am giving it until 7pm this evening and then the game is getting deleted. The level makers for CC need sacking. The game is not fun anymore its just full of the same silly levels. They ought to be ashamed of themselves. I would like to thank CC help blog for all your help. I am joining many other people who have stopped playing.

I’ve been on this for days as well, it sure gets pretty boring! 20 moves is just not enough, asking for some much-needed luck 🙏😄

Need so much luck to pass this level, I have wasted my boosters spent money
And still no luck, even managed to get four cherries down but never seen the fifth
Help cc

Nidhi Srivastava said...

I have wasted many of my boasters on this level. They have reduced the moves its impossible now. .send me a lucky board

neen Katzman said...

Now tgey lowered it to 13 moves!!!!! IMPOSSIBLE!!!!

Anonymous said...

What is going on at King? This level started out with 35 moves, virtually impossible without a gazillion boosters. I got to play that for a couple of minutes, when they dropped it to 20 moves. After a few utterly boring days, I sent King an e-mail asking that they do something to this level!
After almost 100 tries, I passed it on my computer this morning. Well, King didn't notice - I am still on this level. Sent a complaint e-mail to them. What did they do? Now it is 13 moves. I am assuming the staff members at King are rolling around in their cubes laughing at those of us who play this now insanely boring game. So very sad.

Yes another absurd level. No pattern to when the center column drops and always seems to drop when you have a way to win. Also when you break a center piece while it's dropping it won't break. Stupid level yet again.

I just got a lucky board and did it in 13 moves, no boosters - pure luck!

Lucky board please

Deborah Vaughan said...

UGH, NEED LUCK,

FYI - I tried this and it worked. However, when you set your date back to the correct date, it makes you wait 24 hours before it will start giving you lives again. Just thought others would like to know.

Anonymous said...

It won't make you wait if you set the clock back to today's date after you have 5 new lives. It does make your daily treat off time wise so I won't get one for 3 months. But, I don't pay for any boosters and I can play all day long not worried about how many lives they want to give me.

I got lucky board 2nd try with this level so it will come. I got a choc ball stripe and it cleared the board and the candies fell down the middle all the time. Think it took 3 moves with lucky board. Keep on going, it will show up!
