Candy Crush Saga Level 3288 Tips and video


Hints and tips showing how to pass level 3288 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 3288 is all about the keys. If you don't collect the keys early in the game you will have very little chance of clearing all the jelly.
Before you start look carefully at the board and work out the best way to unlock and collect the first key, then the rest will unlock one at a time as you collect more keys. You need to think ahead and try to have candies in place for the next key each time you unlock one so you don't waste too many moves.
Once the candies are all unlocked you still can't relax, you need to carefully make moves, looking all the time for chances to make colourbombs or combos or you will quickly run out of moves.
Colourbombs are always best on jelly levels, especially if you can switch them with a stripe or a wrap to clear the most jelly. You need a bit of luck especially at the start to get the keys in the fewest moves possible.

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.

pretty straightforward board; get the keys as fast as possible; once I did that the board opened up and I got enough wraps and stripes to form, plus a lucky CB toward the end which allowed me to clear the last few jellies since the candies in them were the same color as one next to the CB.

is this the most up to date level with tips from Cookie and RA and anyone from this site? I don't see the next one.

Also....any ideas on how to try and get extra hammer and hand switch boosters and the paint brush and other specials? I think I've only had maybe 2 paintbrushes - the first of which I had no idea what I was doing and totally wasted that. Also, the ice cream booster - how do you get it and what's it good for. Why are the ice cream and paint brush given out hardly ever?

I probably should add that yes, I do play all the extra things to get free boosters when I notice them (I happen to enjoy the dinosaur growing one on the phone - I don't know why it is not on the pc anymore) and I do not have the luxury (i.e. money) to buy boosters.

RA - you're great with hints and advice....so anything?? Especially because I think you posted recently that you used your last hammer?

Whoever it is that has said to get rid of the boosters is not being nice or objective or fair. (RA, forgive me if that's you!). Whoever does not want to play with boosters does not have to!! Let the rest of us play the way we want (and need)!

COOLpurples said...

Ok, I just found 3290 post. Don't know why the prior one did not show up.

But my other questions re boosters still remain for going forward. Any ideas/hints appreciated! ;)

COOLpurples, no that wasn't me advocating getting rid of the space dash, good grief, without it I'd still be stuck back on level 2000 or something like that LOL. There's a reason, I think that they introduced the space dash, and that is because these levels are so hard now.
As for your other question, I'm not sure; I go back every now and then if and when I have time and play earlier levels like 281 to get the sugar drops but that can really be time consuming and so many times King has those levels grayed out where you can't get any sugar drops. And now, for winning some of the contests or finding a treasure chest, instead of permanent boosters that you can use at your leisure, they're giving 1-hour boosters. Nice, I guess, but most of the time I only play for about 30 minutes or don't even need that booster and would rather have it in the bank for later, when I really need to get out of a jam.

Got it without space dash. Used a fish booster. Fun level, more like the old games.

Kaja said...

After days not even close to finishing this level.
I hardly get any boosters. Once I used all 3 to start with and that became the worst try, ended up with 28 tiles left!!!
I could not clear the second key.

No skills needed, just waiting for luck again. I hate those stupid 'waiting for luck' levels!!

Annomous said...

Day 5 of this game and still not getting anywhere near finishing. The fun has gone out of this game, NOTHING should take this amount of time to get through. I have taken exams that have been easier than this game. BRING BACK THE FUN CANDY CRUSH BEFORE I QUIT. LUCKY BOARD PLEASE.
