Candy Crush Saga Level 3170 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 3170 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 3170 is a straightforward jelly level but with bombs that will kill your game every time if you are not very careful.
Your priority has to be keeping the bombs under control while you clear the jelly.
Once some of the blockers are out of the way you should look very carefully at the board because you will need some good combos to pass this level and it can be tricky to see the patterns in the bombs.
Work close to the bottom of the board if you can to create cascades which will help you with the bombs, but keep a close eye on the bombs as they don't have a lot of moves.

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 can't understand you Anonymous.
I brag, so what? I have good reasons; I happen to be better player than most of you.
If you really don't give a shit like you wrote me many times in the past, just ignore and skip, but you can't do that so I guess you do care and jealous.
You think King is making levels harder because of my brag, WOW I'm flattered – King is changing levels because of me (nonsense)…

I brag but I also write tips.
I will not write start with 2 CB, use powerful combos and work in the bottom to cause cascades, these are too obvious.
I write tips when I think it may have added value.
To name 2, go back 2 levels to level 3153 or go to level 3040.
These are only 2 tips from the top of my head, but if you roll back, to will find many more.
I even explained the fixed route of the CB/strip combo and how you can count if the strips will go to the needed direction.

You don't know me, and I don't know you, so, I really don't care what you are writing about me.
Yet, you still want me out of this blog.
The thought that you are using my tips and after that run to this blog and try to offend me, make me want to leave.

So, along with my brag, goes also my Tips.

Adios.

Gil, I am very sorry to hear that that you have to put up with this nonsense, but Please don’t punish all of us for the complaints of one ! I personally enjoy ALL of your tips and comments. Just ignore the jealous complainer. Crush on ! Thank You ! SG

Bear with me said...

Don’t leave Gil. You’ve been part of this CC family for a long time and a lot of us enjoy the comments and tips. Don’t let a few haters get you down. I don’t have any tips for this level. Used 2cbs and it almost played itself. Halfway thru I was looking for combos to make and realized I had cleared all the jelly. Hope everyone enjoyed this episode. Until next Wednesday!

Hope you are doing better Sharon!

I once observed that I had more moves than Cookie and others had and it was because I skipped the lastest updated until after completing the new episode. DUMB IDEA. I completed the lastest episode and wrote down the number of moves for each level. Updated and wrote down the moves from the updated version. No levels had fewer moves. 9 Levels had more moves. One level 3162 - had 20 more moves.
I am sharing this because, someone else may think Candy Crush always makes it harder than Cookie’s version, but I guess sometimes they make it easier. I am lucky to have passed all the levels, a lot of lucky boards and space dash.

A couple of tricky levels this episode and unable to get three stars on all. This last level almost played itself. Finished with 27 moves left. I got double space dash this week so with the "didi" challenge started every level with five chocolate sprinkles for two hours. Pretty much a waste making use of that many. Not complaining though. There's been enough of that lately. Has anyone seen Rick? Hope he didn't quit too. Thanks for the kind words Bear with me. Doing better, just afraid of it happening again. Haven't been out anywhere since. Til next Wednesday.

I have now passed 1350 straight levels on my first go.

Gil said...

Goodbye my adoring fan base. If you beg me to stay, like really beg me to stay, I will be back.

Anonymous said...

But please read his last comments..very bitter very hateful..he is one of the haters..sorry...he actually claims to "better than most of you" I was actually on his side until I read his last post..very arrogant..very hateful

Anonymous said...

well, I thought this was going to be a miserable level. I lost my boosters that began my first round, then used a CB and wrap the second time and lost that game as well. Finally I just played with no boosters - just to see how long it would take.

Turned out it only took one more. Some of you use strategy and skill, (and I thank you all for your insight) but for me, once more, it was the lucky board that demanded only that I pay attention to making special candies and watching what jellies were still to be eliminated. Got it three stars with 15 moves left.

And this is Gil's troll!

Yes because this Gil..is somewhat polite

Rick said...

Sharon, thanks for remembering me. I still play Candy Crush. I am on month-long cruise right now in the Pacific Ocean and playing it on a slow Internet. I have finished also the last episode. I am just trying to keep pace with the lead pack. I don't post tips anymore because Cookie's tips and the other players comments are already available.

Victoria said...

Congrats, Gil!

I’m so glad this episode is behind me! The previous level almost did me in. I’m glad to see Sharon is recovering and that Rick is still with us even on his fabulous cruise. I hate to see the bickering and derogatory messages! This is just a game, folks, let’s all take a big breath and relax and get along. When you have lived as long as I have you’ll find it’s best to be courteous to one another. This ends my grandmotherly lesson. Thanks to everyone and it was nice to see some new helpers join in on these last episodes.

Ellie said...

Good job Gil, obviously you are more intelligent then us, and do well. Continue to enjoy the game and giving us tips and ignore the jealous people
I’m impressed

Anonymous said...

Good grief. Difficult level. Need help!!

Anonymous said...

Well said Carol the elder. I've been hesitant to post any tips lately.
To you, Carlton, Victoria and Bear with me - I would just like to thank-you all again for your very kind words and thoughts. It's so great to have such caring CC friends.
Sharon

TNC said...

I personally hated this entire episode. Hope next week's is better. Otherwise I may just play old levels to get the fun back in the game.

COOLpurples said...

How are some of you playing past level 3169. It doesn't seem to be available yet - at least on my pc or n my phone?? Also. sorry to repeat this question in several places, but I'd really like to know the answer to this and am hoping someone sees it and answers it honestly:
** Question - when some of you say that you "reset to get color bombs next to each other" - what does that mean exactly? How does that work? Doesn't it use up whatever boosters / color bombs you started with? Thanks for any help you can give me (and others)!

Carol the elder said...

COOLpurples, I play on my iPad and this episode ends at 3170 until Wednesday when CC usually adds 15 more levels. The folks who play on Windows 10 go farther. At least that’s how I understand it. You can “reset” or change a level layout by tapping the little gear wheel at the bottom left of the board when it opens, then tap the red circle with the back arrow in it. That takes you back to the Candy Crush layout and then you can tap the level number again. You MUST DO IT BEFORE ANY MOVES ARE MADE! It gives you a chance to start over if you don’t like the looks of the layout and your boosters stay intact.

Posting for luck

COOLpurples said...

Thanks for the advice. I actually didn't realize that I played 3170 (on my Windows 10 pc), but thought it had stopped at 3169. I appreciate ALL the good tips on this site. It would be nice if people would do just that and stop bickering (I don't want to get in the middle of all that). I and many others really appreciate the people who give good tips on this site!

Anonymous said...

Go back and read his last post...it is one of bitterness and hate ..oh and he is better than us and he is taking all of his tips and going home with tbem...one,last thing G il did you beat all the levels in this episode in one try...

Anonymous said...

I am not Gil but I won 12 levels of this episode on the first try.

Jo said...

Hello All. I've arrived! Just got to the top, thanks to all the tips and comments along the way. And I've not bought anything or spent any money doing it so I'm feeling a bit smart!! And I'm in my 70s (does that make a difference?!). How many people are in this 'waiting for the new levels' group??

JV said...

Crappiest episode in a long time. Not fun, designed to use up your store of boosters and make you buy more. Mid episode I finish 3166, which is one of those levels, and it doesn’t register the win. So I had to beat that one twice. Then to rub salt in the wound I get through the last level available and the treasure chest gives me of all things 2 hours of unlimited lives (fit what I don’t know). A person should be able to bank those to use later when you can get some benefit out of them.

JV said...

. for what

Bear with me said...

Welcome Jo and to the other crushers who are now part of the every Wednesday group! I’m not sure how many of us there are since a lot of people are anonymous and it’s hard to tell if it’s the same person with multiple posts. Anyway - enjoy the tips/posts/comments and camaraderie and just ignore the bickering. 😊

carlton said...

About 3 episodes ago there were people complaining about how easy candy crush had become especially with space dash..apparently the creators of CC must have been listening....this has to been one of the most difficult episodes of all time...easily top 5...and without a time level..I can't remember the last time it took me more than a few hours to complete an episode...this one took a couple of days thanks for the gold bars and boosters otherwise I may still be playing. And please no more,licorice..level 3166 was worse than the worst time level.....Dear King I will never complain again that CC has gotten easy

Anonymous said...

Posting for luck with those timed bombs. They are killing me.

Lucky me said...

Hurrah! Finally caught up with the grown ups at the top waiting for the next episode, would never have managed without space dash or lovely letters letting me start with 2 adjacent candy bombs, feels a bit like cheating but hey, whatever works for you.
Thanks for all the tips along the way especially whoever suggested level 606 for a quick way to maximise your space dash, much quicker than level 6 which was what I scrolled down to before. Thanks also for the keep tapping tip when ' tap here to skip' comes up, I hadn't realised you could tap quickly through all the screens! See you all in the next episode

Anonymous said...

Hello! I actually finished the episode last Thursday. I had no tips to post. I want to wish everyone good luck tomorrow.

bec said...

completed the stretch finally, but it was boring with the silly, over difficult games. The last stretch was fun, I hope the next one will be. And to goodbye to GIL, if you actually are leaving. I can understand your boredom when you win so easily

Anonymous said...

Omg! Not another one to bad mouth Gil. Get off his case and stop with the sarcasm. He has every right to have fun and post as much as you and all the other complainers. It's much harder to listen to all of you.

Luis Núñez said...

What 606? I’ve been scrollin down all the way to level 6 for months, gonna try 606 for sure. Didn’t quite get the tapping tip though

Anonymous said...

What is the tapping tip to get through the screens quickly?

Anonymous said...

I agree with you fully..everyone should be allowed to post and have fun. He is proud of his success and we should all join in the celebration of his success and let freedom ring and once again we are all proud of you Gil.You are the embodiment of what makes us all go. AND I do believe that if Gile leaves it will be the beginning of the end for all of us Crushers. What he has contributed to this game and not just this game but life in general has been unfathomable. Please Gul reconsider

Carol the elder said...

To anonymous, 13 March at 22:51. Candy Crush have me the tap to skip several months ago. It comes after you win during the cascade. It just saves time. I play on iPad and don’t know how to get it. It was just an addition to my game by CC.

Anonymous said...

Please don’t leave Gil. I thought the last episode was extremely difficult for me. Hope this one is better. I read posts everyday to get tips. Thanks to everyone. Dianne

CC from vero said...

Glad to see you back Sharon! Thanks Bear with me and Carol the elder. Your comments are always helpful!
Thought I might quit at 3168- it about did me in@#!. But I finally prevailed .
This site has been a joy when you feel like you’re getting frustrated so I guess I’ll stay on for a bit longer.
Good luck to us all- and Carol- you’re right- it’s only a game!

Posting for luck. I can't believe I got through 3169 without boosters and now back to bombs again. Thanks for all the tips

Anonymous said...

Bombs are a nightmare. Don’t bother using the fish, they don’t always target the bombs, and if they do they don’t destroy the ones with the lowest countdown.

Leslie W said...

Same for me as anonymous from March 7. I tried with boosters to start with no luck. Played with nothing and won! Sometimes it is like that.

Never had a helmet said...

No boosters used to start but I did use a hand switch at the end. I missed good opportunities when I didn't pay attention to the stripes that landed next to a wrap.

Marylou said...

Why is people bickering in such a hateful manner over a GAME. For God's sake, it's ridiculous to be so angry about such a trivial matter.

wendy green said...

Help just help I hate bombs

Vivien said...

Here we go again another awful level not enjoying it at all just hoping for a lucky board.
Please people keep your tips coming as I would be lost without them.
