Candy Crush Saga Level 3168 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 3168 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 3168 has changed so many times that the following tips may not help much, but I will try to keep the video up to date if I can.
Here is another level that is impossible to clear without using boosters. You need to get the ingredients down to the exits, which isn't too hard as they will slip down diagonally if you hit them with a stripe/wrap combo or other combo.
If it is possible to make a match in one of the top sections at the start of the game this will give you a good start on clearing the jelly in that section and also getting the cherry down.
The hard part of level 3168 is clearing the licorice in the top sections as they soon fill up with licorice which blocks your combos and stops you getting to the jellies.
Clearing the jelly in the bottom section is fairly straightforward and while you are doing that look for stripes and stripe/wrap combos to hit the top sections.
A double colourbomb combo will clear a lot of jelly and the licorice, but the licorice will come back pretty quickly so not so good.
A good combo would be a colourbomb/wrap as long as there are candies of the wrap colour in the top sections.

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

KING are obviously bored with providing levels that have any kind of skill now, 3166 was the same - use all your boosters for nothing - the levels are pure pot luck, such a shame they've finally run out of ideas.

Bear with me said...

The trick is to get cascades in the bottom half and also use a fish booster. I found that sometimes the cascades kept going where I couldn’t make a stripe wrap because it was going off by itself. But with the help of some fish, and you can easily make cbs in the bottom half - I was able to finish with a cb combo to clear the jelly and the fish ate the final jelly.

Anonymous said...

First try with fish booster and you get lots of cb combos to clear the rest.

Mariellen Jordan said...

This is stupid!!! I said I was going to quit at 3000. I’m going to use up all my boosters. If I can’t win I am done!!! It’s been fun. Thanks for all the help cookie and everyone else. Xo

Mario Morin said...

Just dumb. I quit

Anonymous said...

I just don't get this one. The top squares get quickly filled with licqourice, so even if you make cb there is nothing to match them with in the top squares. What am I missing here?

What are you missing here? Nothing Suzie.... this level is absolute stupidity..... I am waiting for game to be fixed or moving on. Nothing worse than trying to make people buy boosters so they can "win".

Ange 123456 said...

I agree. This level is a nightmare. I guess the lack of a video means even Cookie can’t pass this one

JaneM said...

Back to level 606 for boosters.

I think this is it for me. This level is just boring and tedious. Unless this level gets an update so that it's possible to win, I'm done!

hoping to get thru this time...also curious about 606 x boosters, will be checking it out

I completed 3168 and it refuses to move to the next level. I had to buy boosters to finish this level so if it doesn't move, I'm DONE. I will delete this addicting game. Disgusted, Deloris

booklady said...

Still no luck, started with full helmet and all 3 boosters. Had 1 jelly left and used my last 3 hammers which didn't crack it. So frustrating.

Booklady i used a hammer also and it did not clear mine either. this is so stupid. i have thrown everything at it. and level 606? i checked it out it is not good for boosters. what am i missing

Not 606. It is 666 and 1168 that provide the most drops for getting boosters.

Anonymous said...

this is totally impossible. hang in there they will change it. you can't get the ones on top because you can't get rid of the blockers. more just keep coming and the fish don't eat . you can't even hammer them out they don't get replaced with a color so you can''t even get them out with a CB so until it gets changed i will go play something else. you have taken the fun out of it

Fathima Amod said...

I have tried everything possible n still no luck. What is wrong with this level king, I have no boosters to go forward in this game

Emsa8 said...

It depends firstly which device you use (I think must be a mobile) and secondly if this "helmet/space dash" etc additional game/incentive is on (normally a button you cannot miss on the main board shows it). Each time you win you get a booster more, sometimes up to 5 boosters and 3 moves more. So level 606 is in my opinion the easiest game ever made (apart from 1-5) and can be done in 3 moves. Not possible not to win. So - playing 606 several times - it's an easy way getting boosters IF you play on mobile

Emsa8 said...

Yes, when you collect drops for boosters, you are very right. But if helmet or space dash is on (unfortunately only when playing on mobiles I think) 606 is the best (see my explanation above)

Lilac said...

The key is colorbomb and wrap. And make sure that the colour s are present at the top. And try to stock up on A a few Hammers. At the end if one or two left to clear , you can blast them

Fathima Amod said...

I have thrown everything into this ridiculous level, I even bought boosters. I am so tired trying I have no hammers so please give me a lucky board

JaneM said...

606 is just 4 moves so its quicker.

Seany Murtagh said...

King are just giving us all way too many reasons to stop playing this game...trying to rip us off & trying to make you buy boosters that don't even work on these levels...but I refuse to get sucked into any purchases...so its goodbye for me

Anonymous said...

Well King, you've done it. You finally managed to push me away with these stupid ass luck levels. Totally not fun anymore. All boosters gone. I think I used about 200 lives on this level. I AM DONE. Uninstall today..... Fuck you King

Anonymous said...

For the first time in all of 3168 levels of CC, i dont see any hope of beating that one, even 2 double CB cant do the trick. Only thing i couldnt try is fish booster as im out and of course sugar drops or spinwheel only give me other useless boosters for this level.
About 606: it doesnt give you sugar drops, it allows you to get easily the full helmet so that you get the free boosters+3 extra moves...not that its helping much. :(

Anonymous said...

This one is impossible even with boosters. If you are left with only licorice at the top, it cannot be cleared. Period. If you use a booster on a licorice, another one will drop.

I think KING has realized it made a mistake by making it so easy to get lots of boosters. They make these impossible levels to slow down those who have reached the top levels because they can't keep up. But once we realize they can't be won without boosters, we just collect free boosters and win them. So they are making it impossible to win even with boosters. They should probably just end the game, but I also think they realize that they will never create another game as popular as CC.

My daughter stopped playing long ago (kids, job, no time). But when I reached a seemingly impossible level, she would tell me "when the game wants you to win, you will win." I think this level probably needs to be approached with that philosophy. Forget the boosters and play until you quit the game or win. Unless they change it, only luck will do it for you.

Anonymous said...

Well, I did win. But I burned about 30 boosters.

Gigi said...

IMPOSSIBLE for almost a week. Posting for luck or someone's magic strategy. I see where Johnny Crush did it (posted video) so maybe I will get a good board before the end of time.

Anonymous said...

The best, though longest, level for sugar drops is 1476, I find.
(This level is ridiculous, there's no way of getting rid of the liquorice.)

Anonymous said...

this is my 3rd time posting this level. yes this level is so stupid . i did it and here is what did it for me. everything i did you guys have already done. and i did this several times before I got it.

i started with the dash boosters, then i used all 3 boosters hammer, wrap and strip and the fish. did not switch the 2 CB together used 1 on a color up top then the other on another color on top. that hopefully will leave one of the square empty. i waited till both cherries were down then watched my count down and when i could use a hammer to clear a jelly. you can not clear the blockers with a hammer. i used only 2 hammers. i hope this helps .

anonymous said...

I got down to 1 jelly. Used 4 hammers on the 1 jelly and nothing happened. Is there a glitch here?

bec said...

used double chocolate sprinkle to clear as much as possible from the top, used 3 hammers to get out. Be careful to only use a hammer if the square above is clear or liquorice will drop down and your hammer is wasted, best to try and clear the top before it fills with liquorice. Stupid level really, ridiculously hard and very tedious. I go to level one to get my boosters, it is quicker than 606

mzbliz said...

Finally got this after 6 days of frustration.
Back to level 606 to get the full helmet. Don't bother trying this level without it. CB with anything else helps, but even after persevering for 6 days I still needed a lucky board and one hammer to finish it off.
Don't give up. This should be marked super hard!

To Bear With Me,
I followed cookies advice and started with a CBC/ wrap. Had the fish booster to help but got no cascades going and almost no fish!, so hate to tell you but you got a lucky board!;)
I only hop I get one soon- feels like 3166 all over again!.@#

No matter what we do, we will pass when they let us. This game is becoming boring and no Fun at all. Now that I'm waiting for new levels to be released to keep going, instead of being way back, the levels are boring and imposaible.

The moves have been upped to thirty two which in my opinion makes no difference as the game is flawed and nigh on impossible.King must employ some right idiots.It’s a shame as they have ruined a once enjoyable game that I have (like many others)have had enough of.Methinks it is time to pack it in.

OMG another WTF level...came here for advice.....will try the fish booster

Anonymous said...

If King hadn’t taken ALL by boosters at the last update, I would have fish boosters I could use! They refuse to reply to me personally about how I can get them reinstated so they really don’t care.
I can’t see that it is possible to pass without boosters so I’m stuffed!!

SERIOUSLY, KING!

Kingwoo said...

Playing on iPhone. Every time you use one colour bomb the other mysteriously explodes. I see no strategy for this level. Closest I got after days was 2 jellies left. Will keep on trying but this level needs a new ranking. Any suggestions?

Anonymous said...

Break time... This level is senseless, I don't even play all 5 lives anymore because it is just a waste.. As I said break time until it changes.. Good luck to those that pass!!

Unknown said...

There seems to be no way to get the jellies as the licorice is always in the way. The only solution I can come up with is to save a ton of hammers and then wallop the hell out of it until the jellies are gone. I’ll let you know how it goes. It’s gonna take me a month to get that many hammers from sugar drops...

Anonymous said...

I've been on this episode for 2 weeks and used almost all of my boosters. What's the deal?

Anonymous said...

Yeah, another WTF level for sure. This is all done to slow us down so they don't feel pressure to release new and exciting levels every week. They have no new ideas on keeping the game fun. I'm ready to throw in the towel for sure.

Anonymous said...

How the hell are you suppose to clear a box that won't fill up with a candy? This level needs to be fixed!!!

Tammy Agosta said...

I started this level with a sprinkle/wrap combo and fish booster. I reset until I had candies in all the top sections that matched the wrap color. That cleared a lot of the jelly in the top. I waited to activate the fish until I had jellies that didn’t have licorice in them and the fish hit those ones. I still had to use a hammer on one of the jellies and I had to wait until it didn’t have licorice covering it. What a joke of a level!

anonymous said...

There is no chance for strategy on this level. You cannot control when you have a combo that it is going to take down jelly. I have gotten down to 1 jelly left and there was absolutely nothing I could do short of going bankrupt in spending money which I refuse to do. I think that is all King is interested in is getting us to spend money!

cazzie64 said...

Fix this soon or more people will leave. I'm getting very fed up and slipping and down islands as well cos can't collect what's needed. Not happy

Anonymous said...

Why have the liquorice keep coming back once hit? Keep hitting them but they immediately reappear. Rubbish level, needs fixing. No fun at all, just terribly frustrating. I am also ready to give up which is a shame as have enjoyed this game so far. Fed up of wasting so much time on these pathetic levels which obviously just want you to purchase boosters. Where is the skill in that?

anonymous said...

Last anonymous comment: I agree. How can we all get together to complain to King, or does King read these comments? Hopefully they do!

McT said...

No boosters....now what??...you hit the licorice once, but can't hit the jelly in time before licorice takes over again...either not enough moves or need to fill jelly with a candy, which won't happen...don't know what to do or gain a foothold...help???!!!

Anonymous said...

This level is stupid even by recent King standards. Truly impossible to beat with the licorice constantly falling into the upper squares. I'm done unless they come back and fix it.

McT said...

They have to fix it....with no boosters left, there is no point in trying...you are wasting your time...I will come back in about a week to see if they changed the game...otherwise, I am leaving, also...

Anonymous said...

They don't read these comments but you can go to king care and complain. You will get some stupid ass response from them saying with patience all levels are possible, or at least that is what I got the few times I have messaged them.

Anonymous said...

My wife ask me to help her complete a super hard level somewhere between 850 to 900 and I passed it first time. Shows how disgustingly hard or impossible these higher levels are. I'm not going to say I quit, neither am I going to bother keeping ahead with "N"(you know who you are). Actually I think N either a dummy setup by King who always seems to complete these levels quickly in order that King hope we spend to compete to beat ."N" or is in fact another user or simply spends so much to be the first. Either way it's dumb. And no I'm not giving up! I'm simply going to wait now until levels are updated to make them easier. So up yours King and "N"

cazzie64 said...

Got within 1 jelly from completing but impossible with all the liquorice even though I had hammers I could see that I wouldn't be able to break them away with the number of hammers I had. Kind needs took short thus level and soon. Too many comments from disgruntled players nobody minds a h difficult level if you can see it is achievable!

Anonymous said...

I don't get the strategy here...the licorice keeps filling the top right and left, so there's absolutely no way to clear the jelly. I've played well over 100 times and the closest I've come is 7 jellies left, all at the top, covered with licorice. No colors fall down so even when I do get a chocolate sprinkle, it does me no good. Even if I match a sprinkle and stripe, the stripes hit the licorice, do no damage to the jelly, and more licorice falls down to cover the jellies again. Impossible level as is. Please fix this, King. You've taken what little fun remained completely out of this game.

Cath G said...

I think a big part of beating this game is to to mix a colour bomb with a wrapped candy on the bottom level when the same colour candy appears in the two top boxes. It makes a huge difference. You then have plenty of moves left to form colour bombs and, when there are no candies left on the top to form stripes to target jelly with no licorice on it. I still needed 3 candy hammers tho :(

Liz said...

I've been playing this one for a week now, with full space dash, and nothing works. All other boosters used up. The closest I've got is 6 jellies left. It is so boring! Also can someone explain why the space dash always disappears overnight? For those using 606 to get it, why? Just go back to levels 1-5. Much easier

Anonymous said...

Thanks for this new game
Really easy

Anonymous said...

Well thank you King for listening and changing this level... I never thought the introduction of 4 popcorns would make it easier but it is much easier now and there seems to be less liquorice too. So come back everyone, you can now pass this without boosters!!! Nanny Annie

Anonymous said...

No licorice coming down now and 4 popcorn at bottom, completed first time. Thank you king for changing it after 2 weeks I was getting a bit fed up.

Anonymous said...

I was glad to see King modify the level into something much more playable. I started with a candy ball - wrapped candy combo and finished the first time with 20 moves left. Onward!

Anonymous said...

What the heck!!! I passed the level and the next one. I was on 3170. I ran out of lives and the next time got back into the game It sent me back to this level.

Anonymous said...

Okay, here is the secret. You need to unblock the top square in the middle. This is not easy, but if you have lots of hammers that might work. Once the top block is free of jelly a fish will drop down. This fish can be released and they fish will eat the middle jelly. If you get two or more top ones free more fish will drop. You need to explode these fish to get them to eat the middle jelly. Wow, what a mission....I spent a lot of time on this before I got it sorted. A fish booster helps too. Tin tin.
