Candy Crush Saga Level 3338 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 3338 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 3338 is a dual task level, you need to collect the two ingredients and clear the jelly to complete the level and at the time of writing you have 23 moves to do it.
First of all forget about the jelly, you will clear it no problem if you collect the ingredients.
What you need to concentrate on is destroying the middle spawner on each side because that is where the ingredients will drop down. There is no point destroying the top one or the bottom one, although they may well be cleared as you work and they will give you one hit on the middle one if they are destroyed.
You whole focus should be on making combos to hit the spawners, stripe/wrap combos, colourbomb/stripe combos and best of all double colourbomb combos will all help to hit the spawners.
You will get some mystery candies dropping from the top and also stripes from the dispensers at the bottom, these can be helpful but don't waste moves trying to get them, just work on making the combos needed.

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.

With the number of colors on the board, how long cascades were lasting, and how often CBs, wraps and stripes formed, I know it was just a matter of time before I'd get lucky and be able to knock out a few of those spawners so the ingredients would drop. The frusttrating part was how I was never able to set anything up, anytime I managed to get a CB next to a stripe, or a wrap next to a stripe, the board would shift and start cascading and blow my combos up. Just stick with it, that lucky board will come pretty quick.

Still waiting for the lucky board. This is a very hard level. Way too many spawners and not enough occasions to get rid of them.

DO NOT srart with 2 CBs. I did and it cleared all the candies, but no new candies dropped. I got the message - oops! Brush off the stardust and try again.

Anonymous said...

Having played it again after the 2 CB disaster, I figured out that the mystery candy at the top center turned to a blocker and ruined my great start. Was it just bad luck or were they punishing me?

Still working on this one. It seems hard to get enough opportunities to make vertical striped candies. A CB with a stripe would be nice. I don't even try to eliminate the jelly. It disappears without even trying. I got one cherry down once but it's 2 that's needed.

Anonymous said...

It took 6 blasts to get rid of one middle spawner. Not enough moves left for the other one.

Anonymous said...

not fun! Tried numerous times with full space helmet and only gotten one cherry down

Anonymous said...

yeah, these spawners seem to require more hits. played several times and only destroyed one

Anonymous said...

has anyone beaten this? it's impossibly boring

Netski said...

I had the same experience as anonymous. Used 2 cb at the start and a blocker stopped any more candies from falling. Not just bad luck I think

Sherry626 said...

Posting for luck..very frustrating

Anonymous said...

I use the space dash plus I use one hand switch and 3 lollipop to destroy the spawner . So we need booster for that level very frustrating

Dieter Heinz said...

I passed it with 1 hammer for the last fruit. The boosters will be more and more important.

Sherry626 said...

Still haven't broken 1 spawner..Very very frustrated... This is another money grabbing level for King!!! Beyond annoyed at this point

COOLpurples said...

I hated this level! I don't even have any advice to give because I think I just got a little lucky and the unlucky part was having to use up almost all the few boosters I had left because I didn't want to go through it again! Levels like this should be banned - or at least optional ;) !

Anonymous said...

An incrediblely difficult level.... to many spawner so not nearly enough moves or opportunities to make striped candy. Posting once again for that lucky board

Cherrelle Piotraschke said...

It's day 4 on this level!! It should show as a very hard level!! I have tried everything!! I started with 2 cb's, what a waste!! Used too many hammers!! Extra moves!! Space dash!! I managed to open one spawner!! I didn't have enough moves to drop fruit!! Too frustrated!!

Anonymous said...

Guess this one is getting us all down. Used up all my hammers on 3335 and now only getting bloody fish on sugar drop rewards. Maybe I should call it a day

Erik Kamp said...

Ridiculous level. Not enough moves for the both spawners

Elektra said...

After many many many failed attempts, I added all 3 available boosters to full helmet, and reset for 2 CBs together to start. (I had seen above comments warning about this, but 2 of my failed attempts had that start and I didn’t experience the blocking others had.) Finally took 2 hand switches to get stripes line up correctly and 3 hammers (1 on left middle spawned and 2 on right) to blast middle spawned. Boosters won it for me. I don’t know how I’d do it without them — I probably wouldn’t.

I don't mind a level being hard as long as it's interesting and where progress can be made. This level is boring, tedious and relies on exceptionally good luck.

Exactly what the hell is the point of the fish booster, why not give us the coconut wheel instead.

Is there a way to tell if the spawners are close to exploding? I cannot figure out how they change. This level is ridiculous...cannot get the spawners.

Same crappy ass luck as everyone else!!😣 I also would like to know how to tell when spawners will blow up?? Am waiting to pass this ridiculous level!

There is hope! I did it on the last move with NO boosters! Such ridiculous levels now. It's about boosters, not strategy. Contemplating which level I will finish on for good. It's been fun, but almost impossible to complete a level without boosters now. Good luck all!

Anonymous said...

Time to go. This is just stupid. Winning without boosters is long gone.
Now the games are dsigned so that you won’t win unless you BUY boosters.
Like extra moves or like in this level, a lot of hammers.
Its simple, from the first game you know you will need to hit the center spawmer.
So the game doesn’t give you anything nearly enough to hit it with.
The only option is to hammer away.
These days, how many people have a lot of hammers left?
Now you can spin the wheel as much as you like, win candy contests etc. you won’t get any hammers.
Only option is to buy.
I suppose cc is a business after all. Good luck with that, I liked browsing, but I’m not buying. Good bye.

7 days of trying now. On 4 devices, hundreds of times,
All boosters gone......not even close.

jannie said...

Hoping King reads all the comments about this level. Having come this far we expect the game to be hard, but this level is the worst. I've been playing a week on 3 devices and still nowhere near. Please update to make it possible or you will lose a lot of players.

Anonymous said...

I just ignore these levels after a good crack at them and play older levels for sugar candies. Once they are fixed I continue on. If the fix doesn't come I'll happily call it a day but that day hasn't arrived yet...

No way you can pass without doing so

Randall Branham said...

This is getting ridiculous. Even with boosters I can't even get close. Feel like calling it quits

Anonymous said...

Same thing happened to me! Very frustrating since I'd taken the time to load up the boosters from space dash and it happened on my second move of the game after blowing up all my boosters.

Anonymous said...

Don't think you need any more luck than any other level, I did it by getting one of the wheels to pop then it took 5 hammers to get the middle wheel on the other side, then easy to get the ingredients down. At the moment there is a glitch on Safari on my Mac playing on Facebook, I have had to use Chrome to play cc since they changed the game but accidentally played on Safari yesterday, everytime I close the game and then restart it I get the days bonus again and full lives but there is a massive glitch, play level 2000 and you get a big stash of goodies, cones hammers, saucers, paint brushes etc. log out back in same over and over, few times doing that and you could do 3338 in 1 move(possibly)

Anonymous said...

In not spending money to play a game. I work too hard for it. I've been playing a long time, but lately the levels are beyond super hard.

Mlssrn said...

After days of not even coming close, even with save dash, I finally succumbed and used 4 of my lollipop hanners and one hand switch to end this agony :-(

Mlssrn said...

Oops space dash lol

sultanate shaikh said...

Have been trying for days together. Earned boosters by playing previously levels ... By getting sugar drops. As I have never got a helmet or space dash it's been a difficult journey past few episodes. It's not fun anymore. Instead it's getting frustrating. You need luck for almost every level.

I refuse to buy booster, switches or lollipops to win a board so OBVIOUSLY designed to make us spend money!

After reading all these comments, I went back and focused on hitting the middle spawners. when 1 exploded I used 4 hammers to clear the other one and the cherries. Glad to be moving on! Good luck to all!

I echo the comment above. I seem to be hitting the spawners an awful lot of times, and they just never explode.

with 5 colors on the board this is F*$&%*@) Impossible! I think King has finally pissed me off enough to move on to another game. This is no long in any way fun, just frustrating! It's actually a relief leaving the frustration behind and finding another game. Bye Bye King, you suck!

Anonymous said...

Another crap level from your poor developers King. I'm not paying for this crap so will do lower levels until you nerf it

Anonymous said...

Bull crap! No not PAYING any money .... last few levels have been money money money..

Anonymous said...

I've been playing this level for several days, and just now got my first coffee grinder (I'm sorry, that's what they look like - they aren't spawning anything in this level) on the last move of the game. Though it was one of the upper machines, and so wouldn't have done me any good even if I had any moves remaining.

I agree that the best strategy seems to be to save up hammers from daily spins and collecting sugar candies to knock out the middle grinders. Though I hesitate to go after them if I don't know how many more times they have to be hit. Again, I wish that King would put little numbers on them, counting down the number of times they still need to be hit before they are destroyed. Oh, well...

And for those wondering why King makes these levels so hard, it's because enough players pay for boosters to make it worth the company's while. If enough people just stopped playing they would have to ease up.

I'm wondering if King gets enough from the ads to survive with fewer customers buying boosters. I mean, if people stop playing because the levels are too hard then there will be fewer potential customers to click on the ads. I'm guessing that the advertisers pay a certain amount to King each time one of us clicks on their ad to receive a booster. I'm also wondering if enough customers actually buy their products. You've probably noticed that an advertiser will have an ad for a few days or so, and then won't come back. Surely if they are making money off us they will hang around.

Another pointless level making it boring to play getting close to jacking it in!

Maj said...

My addiction to candy crush is finally over thanks to this ridiculously hard level - been stuck for more than a week- it’s getting boring now

sheflys said...

Back to 23 moves, but it really doesn't help. The problem with this level is the location the spawners that need to be eliminated to release the cherries. It is very hard to hit them with the configuration of this board. I have been playing this level for days and have yet to eliminate even 1 spawner.

It would appear that (and not for the first time) if enough people have enough difficulty getting through a level, King will make it easier. Whether someone from the company takes the time to read the complaining messages their customers post on this site or other sites, or just have their computer count how many times people play the level and compare it to the number of players breaking through the next level probably doesn't matter. Once my eight-hour break until I can collect more sugar candies has passed, I will hopefully break through the redesigned level within a few tries.

sheflys said...

I believe you are right on with all of your comments, Anonymous. I posted that the difficulty with this level is that the spawners you need to kill are positioned in a place that is difficult to get to, so it is impossible to eliminate them to let the cherries free. So I just went in and found that they changed the spawners to licorice. And I was able to pass the level on one try with no boosters. Thank-you King.

Kav1022 said...

Agree with all comments. Was frustrating. Mine said that it was Super Hard level. Had the space dash and when I went to play 3338 again the blockers (clocks) were gone and replaced by licorice. Was able to clear the board. Couldn’t believe it. Playing on iPad if that makes a difference

Anonymous said...

Just read the tips before trying this one as it's rated super hard, and there are no spawners! Let's see how this goes.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, easier with no spawners! Started with a level 4 spaceship, plus a watch-the-ad booster. Got some nicely placed stripe/wraps, and finished with 13 moves remaining.
