Candy Crush Saga Level 3290 Tips and video


Hints and tips showing how to pass level 3290 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
From the start look carefully at the board to see patterns to make colourbombs and other special candies. You need to unlock the locked candies and this can be done using colourbombs and colourbomb combos. Switch colourbombs with a stripe or a wrap for the best results.
Don't worry too much about the spawner in the middle of the board, if you make combos it will be destroyed fairly easily as you clear jelly once it is unlocked.
I'm not sure what comes from the spawner as I managed to destroy it before it spawned anything in all the games I played.
Use the conveyors to get your combos into position to clear what needs clearing.
Level 3290 has been made significantly harder by reducing the moves to 18 and adding countdown bombs in the locked sections. The reduced moves are not the problem, the countdown bombs are! You have only 12 moves to clear the bombs before it's game over. I have played this several times without boosters and have not yet cleared the bombs. I would suggest starting the level with 2 colourbombs side by side to get the bombs unlocked. Once the bombs are unlocked clear the spawner in the middle of the board to prevent it filling the board with licorice, then follow the tips and clear the jelly.
There is no new video without boosters at the moment but I will add one when I have one.
Video from YT without boosters

The following video was made using a colourbomb from the helmet plus one CB booster.

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.

Too easy...
As I said, the so called "Wednesday club" is growing, every week new names show up.
It will continue to grow if King will not bring back the challenge to this game.

My recommendations to King are:
1. Cancel the space dash and all its brothers and sisters.
2. Cancel the stupid golden crown for first try.
And as a respect for the elders, I will not mention the timed levels.

Again reset until I had 2 cb's together then watch for combos. Fairly easy finished on first try with 15 moves left.

Enjoyed these two episodes . . . did find that fish boosters helped a lot. Until next Wednesday!

This one kicked my butt first try using space dash plus 1-hour wrap stripe combo, then second game I only had 1-hour wrap/stripe and I added a fish. I definitely got a very lucky board because a few cascades happened which took care of the spawner, and I got 2 instances where a CB ended up next to a stripe.

Two episodes again this week. Hope everyone had some fun. Several levels were a bit challenging. Appreciate Cookie’s advice and the tips from my fellow crushers. See you next Wednesday. Haven’t heard from Sharon or Carlton and did see a few posts from Carol the Elder. Hope all is well. Cheers

Carol the elder said...

The fish booster got the remaining jellies along with the space dash to start. I combined a CB with a wrap at the beginning. I’m glad to be free until next Wednesday. I though this episode was less stressful than the first one. I was ready to quit on it a few times. I didn’t expect to be finished with two episodes today. Until next Wednesday.........Good luck everyone!

These two episodes were ok. Had trouble with 3275.

Had to stop playing yesterday morning after Company arrived and stayed overnight. Going to have to get them trained better to not come on a CC Wednesday lol. So got back playing this am. Took quite a few tries on level 3275 and finally broke down and used three lollipop hammers on last blockers. Found 2nd level more enjoyable than 1st one. Really surprised to see two episodes again. Starting to get used to the candy cane fences. Til next Wednesday. Good luck everyone.

Passed all levels yesterday. Spent lots of hands and lolipops boosters. Think I'll need to gather sugar drops to gain more boosters.

Van5 said...

Started with 2 CB’s to unlock the bombs and was lucky enough to get some stripe/wrap combos to get the bombs cleared. Had to use a hand switch and 3 hammers to finish. Finally caught up after a month away from CC. Whoever is saying to get rid of boosters must be one good player! There is no way I could have got this far without them and would probably have packed it in by now. Had an awful time with 3275. Took many many tries. Need to collect more boosters as I’m almost out. Good luck all! Until next Wednesday.

Hi Van5! I've been wondering where you were. Knew you were such a good player and was worried you might have quit. Good to see you back 😊

Too easy episode, if you pass 3275 it takes 90 mins to complete the full episode.Completed both releases on 18th by 5.30PM India time.

Roger75 said...

I think they have changed the interval to allow gathering sugar drops. You need to wait more to collect those drops.

This level sucks a bag of dicks! Oh...and so does the “Wednesday Club”. I never thought I’d ever see something more annoying than these self-righteous posters who talk about how they’ve made it this far without spending any money on the game or using booster but congratulations Wednesday Club, you proved me wrong!

After posting got a stripe wrap combo by collecting sugar drops. Combined with a CB and fish boosters. Got through with 8 moves remaining.

I suggest the "Wednesday Club" try winning the game now that's it's made harder. They wouldn't be bragging, I don't think. Anybody can play old games to win the space dash, Mort's helmet, etc and put 2 CBs together to start the game, I want to see the game won without boosters.

Anonymous said...

boring changing, buffing and nerfing, don't do that.
Every week the same, if you're there on time it is easy, a little bit later too difficult and impossible and after that again changing a little bit easier, WHY ?

Anonymous said...

Very difficult with only 18 moves. I hoped to play this level and the next 15 levels to be ready and then only have to play the weekly new levels. Also I do not understand how I should start with 2 CB's. It seems a select group has more advantages. Well, I just keep trying until the lucky board. Fons

Posting for luck I hate bombs!

Posting for luck. Superhard - cant get the bombs before they go off..

I got bombs in the locked cages so yes it would be easy if you haven't got bombs. Sort it out cc

Jenny Taylier said...

Do you know, it never occurred to me to the play old games to win the space dash, Mort's helmet, etc. God, I’m thick.

Mind you, I have no intention of bothering. Life’s too short.

Jenny Taylier said...

Oh, and I have found Cookie’s advice invaluable on occasions when I’ve been stuck, so credit where it’s due.

Emsa8 said...

That's true. .. Until the end of the 2000' levels, Mrs Cookie NEVER wrote "I think you need luck" or recommended to use boosters. This is the first time I read that she suggested to "start with 2 CBs"... Well, this IS only possible with space dash or similar. Where is the fun and challenge, just rushing through with full space dash etc.?? Some people even don't play the normal levels, but only play sugar drop levels in order to get boosters in order to win first try. Yawn!!!! On the other hands, some levels ARE mainly impossible without all boosters. Weird

Posting for luck please!😥

sheflys said...

PLEASE - ANSWER THIS QUESTION - how do you set up to have 2 color bombs to start the game? How is that done?

Anonymous said...

I play this level already for 3 days, used the few boosters I had, all lost. Now I am a bit desperate for the first time since I play this game. So close to the last episode. Wait and wait and wait..... for a lucky board. A very very very lucky board. Fons

Montserrat Ortega said...

I've been quite there with just a jelly left. Tried to win extra moves with the spin, but got boosters. So I'm still stuck waiting for a lucky board. The hardest of this level are the bombs.
Post for luck!

Grandma said...

Sadly I don't find it as easy as your first few comments. Nor do I have enough boosters left. Therefore PLEASE CAN I HAVE A LUCKY BOARD

Anonymous said...

This level can't be done with 15 moves. It's a total nonsense and a time waste to play CC now.
My advice is quit this game until they change something. If not, their problem.
There is plenty of better games around.

Anonymous said...

The level was changed, now 20 moves and the bombs explode later. Hooray I have beaten this level a few minutes ago with a very lucky board. Fons

I can't pass this one because the bombs explode so soon. I'd love to get two color bombs together, but that may take hundreds of tries!! Frustrating level!!
