Candy Crush Saga Level 3242 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 3242 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 3242 is classified as a hard level so you can expect to lose some lives before you manage to pass it unless you use lots of boosters. There are only 18 moves so it is super hard.
You need to collect the keys in as few moves as possible to have any chance of collecting all ten ingredients in the moves allowed.
Look carefully at the board before you make a move, you need to get the blockers cleared and the keys collected, if you can make stripes or colourbombs you will find it easier and better still if you can make combos.
Once all the ingredients are unlocked you still have to get them down the board and out of the exit and you likely won't have many moves left so you need to think very carefully about how you are going to do it.
Colourbomb combos are going to be the best option if you can manage to make them, but with the board mostly clear you should be able to do it if you are careful.
Here is the new video from YT.

A lot of people want to know how many games it takes me to pass levels, well I kept count while I was making the following video. It took me 3 hours of solid play and 76 lives to make the video.
Some people might do it a lot quicker and others may take longer.

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 threw everything but the kitchen sink at this: 1-hour CB combined with the CB from space dash plus whatever I got with the striped space dash ship; this all cleared almost all the initial keys & blockers. But even with all those boosters, I still had to use one of my hand switches and my last remaining hammer to finish on the last move. I read where Cookie said it took her 76 lives; I have no pride so I used my boosters. First try, and not ashamed LOL

I've been playing this level for a week. I can't get anywhere close no matter what boosters I use. I guess if I had a hundred hammers I could just blast away at it but I don't. Today I made 5 chocolate sprinkles in the game and it still wasn't enough to pass it.

And now it's been reduced to only 18 moves before it's even released on mobile.

Wow Cookie - I am amazed at your patience and diligence. I have neither the patience nor time so I don’t mind using whatever boosters I can to pass (first time if possible). I used a coconut wheel and was lucky that 44 of the keys were the same color and I had a stripe next to a cb with the same color. So I used the coconut wheel to unlock some of the keys. Used a cb to u lock the odd colore key and then used the cb stripe to get rid of all the keys. However - I still needed 4 hammers to remove the last blocker and candy to get the last nut in the number of moves allowed.

Even if you use a CB combo initially, you will get only one of the keys, although it will unlock the other 4 keys. I have to hammer some of the keys to free the ingredients and I passed it on the second try. A horizontal stripe on the bottom row, if you can make one, is very helpful in collecting the keys and hitting the blockers on the last row.

After i have read your comments, I decided this: starting with combo colorbomb BUT before switching them together, I used 4 hammers to unlock the keys. This was helpfull. Using 3 handswitchs at the end of the game to place the last items in the row who was clear of blockers. Got it at the first try.

I started the level with a chocolate sprinkle, stripe/wrap, and a coconut wheel. I got lucky and had the chocolate sprinkle next to the wrap and 4 of the keys were the same color as the wrap. I still had to use one hammer, one hand switch, and spin for 5 extra moves to beat this level. I'm proud of myself that I didn't spend any money on it though. I'm done spending money on this game because they are just making some of these levels absolutely impossible even with boosters and you just have to wait for a lucky board.

Well I don’t have no hammer 🔨😡😡😡

Ellie said...

Combined 2 color bombs to start. Then combined every combo I could finished with 2 moves left. I had added a coconut wheel but it was at the top and wasted it

Anita said...

Please help. Cannot get this.

Took me lots of tries to get this level. I guess I could have used used hand and lollipop boosters s few times but refused to. I spun for extra moves once and won a stripe/wrap instead. Finally got a lucky board. I used a coconut wheel each time I played and this time got two on the board at the same time and dropped one beside the other. This gave me two continuous rows of stripes. Destroyed all keys and dropped all but three ingredients. Finished with 10 moves left.Good luck!

I played level 3214 three times for space dash and added a cocunutwheel. I used my colorbomb with a stripe and the keys turn into stripe to so they were all cleared and after that the level was very easy to play.

Unbelievable! When Cookie needs 76 lives (which sounds reasonable playing without boosters and regarding the other comments and their problems even with boosters) and an option of 26 moves, what the hell is this reduction to 18 moves good for (except frustrating). I DO have patience as I love playing the game and to win after trying often, but THIS REDUCTION is ridiculous

They must have changed the level recently. Now you have only 18 moves - it is impossibel!

Not enough moves.

Should be easy....NOT!

It’s not a super hard level it’s a impossible level..boring now need more moves

Anonymous said...

Finished this impossible level and passed, reluctantly using quite a few boosters just to get rid of it. Then closed down my iPad only to return to find I am still on same level. No progress to next level. Not happy!! Now what? Time to quit?

No Helmet Here:
Strategy for those without the space dash helmet / double CB option. Since I have many more coconut wheels than anything else (and it may take a few) and only about 4 spaceship boosters, here's how I beat this level. Started with coconut wheel on lower half of the board, 2 rows above the line of blockers (above the row of keys) and also over one of the locked keys, I activated it downwards so that the locked key was turned into a lateral stripe and knocked out the unlocked key and unlocked the rest. Played this way until I was able to take out the remaining keys early with another fortunate coconut wheel or lateral stripe and once I knew that blowing away a few blockers would pass the level but only had a few moves left, I sent in the spaceship who's wrapped candies finished the job. Only used 1 spaceship and about 8-10 coconut wheels (but have over 600 of those so wasn't a big deal). Good luck.

For those who don't have the space dash, you need hammers. If you don't have any, try going back to earlier levels to collect sugar drops

Kevin said...

I finished this 2nd try with no boosters and 7 moves to spare. I'd got close on my first try too. Don't think it's a super hard level at all...

Anonymous said...

Kevin, you might check to see if you have other super powers...maybe apply for the Avengers (just wouldn't put MODESTY down on your resume).

I passed this level on my second try without boosters. I spent several days on the previous level and used all of my boosters even though it wasn't even classified as a hard level. Makes no sense to me whatsoever. Anyway, good luck all! I am almost back to being in the Wednesday club again!

jonithorne said...

Finished it first try. Shocked! Had 21 moves on mobile. Started with full space dash. I had two wraps that were together after resetting board a few times. That did it. It unlocked almost all of the keys. Oh and had to do two hand switches at end. Really sucks that it takes boosters, but that’s why they’re there.

Zenith said...

They must have made this level much easier. 21 moves now. I started with a colour bomb and stripe next to each other and the stripe matched a couple of the locked keys, so that unlocked everything to start.

Finished with 8 moves left.

Never had a helmet said...

3rd try. I didn't start with any of my boosters but I did have a free sprinkle for 1 hour.

Anonymous said...

was lucky because after 9 moves I could bring a CB and a wrap together (must admit used a switch hand to be on the safe side and not spoil it by accident). The wrap had the same color like 3 still locked keys. After this move 9 ingredients were gone, just needed 1 move to get rid of the last one. So my advice when using boosters: don't use coconut (doesn't help much and only one arrives), but CB + wrap and reset until they are next to each other and the wrap has the color of at least 3 keys.
