Candy Crush Saga Level 3356 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 3356 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 3356 has been made virtually impossible, nit because the moves have been reduced, but because the orders have been increased also. Previously all the licorice was on the board at the start of the level so once it was cleared you could forget about it and work on letting the chocolate grow and clearing the blockers.
Now you only have 12 moves to collect all the orders and getting the licorice to drop enough is a challenge.
You won't have many choices of moves to begin with but you need to collect the keys to unlock the mystery candy dispensers, the mystery candies may not always help but they can often be really useful and give you colourbombs and other special candies.
Once the board is more open the big challenge is getting the licorice to drop, you need to make moves under the dispenser without clearing licoice with your move. Combos that are switched at the bottom of the board without touching licorice can often bring some down, but whether it will be enough is anyone's guess.
A colourbomb/stripe combo may be the answer, but since I have not completed the level since it was updated I really don't have any solutions except to hope it will be made more do-able in the next few days.
Here is the latest video by Lisa with 14 moves.
The video below was made before the change so not sure it will be helpful.

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 only time I even got close to passing this level is when I used space dash and got two color bombs together. This cleared most of the bottom licorice allowing me to concentrate on getting licorice to fall from the dispenser. I still have not passed the level.
You need to get lots of licorice falling from the dispenser. Since there are so many to clear on the conveyor, it is difficult to clear space under the dispenser without hitting some of the passing licorice. If you hit any licorice you will just get candy out of the dispenser and you run out of moves.

Not enough licorice falls

Anonymous said...

Very difficult to get the licorice to drop and certainly not enough moves on this level. Cleared all the ingredients and only needed 5 more licorice and with 3 moves left none fell. I'll be on this level until they change it.

Bear with me said...

I started with 2 cbs together and a check booster. The chech booster definitely came in handy. I must have had some luck. I always checked for opportunities to clear a path under the licorice dispenser and minimize hitting the licorice until at least 3 dropped. Was able to get enough licorice (with the help of the check mark booster) and finished with one move left. You don’t have to worry about collecting the other ingredients, you will get them as you free the special candies and work on collecting licorice.

SAB said...

Finally made it, but cost me 10 bars for extra moves.. Not a bad level, just a tough on. Best is to start with 2 cb side by side and add the check mark.. Good luck

Unknown said...

Excellent advice from SAB above - I've got the special spaceship, and this, with the tips above, have just got me through, (plus a lollipop hammer and a free switch). This whole episode is hard.

I had 21 moves with space dash, 18 without. Cookie should check lastest update.

I found this to be a fun level. Lots of cascades and I love mystery candies. Chocolate sprinkle combo to start. Moves directly under licorice dispenser gave me enough. Didn't use any other boosters. 1st try with one move left.

The licorice order is the hardest to collect. It Is OK to start a CB combo,but after that you will still need 17 more licorice. The only licorice dispenser is in the middle column, so concentrate in making vertical matches there for the licorice to drop. A check candy booster will help here.

Horrible level. Can’t get enough licorice. Posting for luck.

Used double chocolate sprinkles and check mark but still no success. Posting for luck. I need it.

Video no help. Can’t get enough licorice . Very frustrating. Posting for luck.

Never pay a cent Bobby said...

Well I did it, after using all my checkmarks to no avail. I just used full space dash, beginning with a wrap/CB and luck with liquorice. There were 18 moves now and all starts with CB/CB didn't work.

Frances Mendenhall said...

I used space dash and check mark several times and when I got the liquorice down to 2 I bought the extra moves. So glad to be done.

That way to much liquorice even with the space dash you need to change it hopefully by next Wednesday

Posting for luck. Hard to collect something that isn’t on the board. Good luck everyone.

Pumpkin said...

Hi.... why are all my levels different to yours? You have only 15 liquorice.. I have 35. Chocolate the same but 20 icing with the same number of moves. How can I get the extra 20 liquorice please??

This is the hardest level ever!

Anonymous said...

This episode is terrible. I already used all my gold bars and boosters on 3352 and 3353 :(

Liz said...

Another level with not enough licorice and designed to suck up all boosters and gold bars. These levels are actually turn off’s from the game and if Candy Crush doesn’t do more for quality control this game will go to the graveyard like many pass games.

Anonymous said...

Same here. Closest I have gotten is 7 licorice. Several times after clearing what is already on the board, no more fall. That combined with cream blocker and popcorn blocking the opening for the “special” candy (which has been anything but special for me) makes this level impossible. I wonder if this is intentional by King developers to hold people back for a while or if they are just too stupid to realize that made it impossible?

Anonymous said...

As if we didn’t know this already...THIS GAME IS RIGGED! Only ne see one licorice with 8 moves left and not a single one fell after that. Such garbage!

Need licorice. For luck

Finally got it! Horrible level. Having space dash with extra moves is what did it. I use the color bomb plus striped candy combo in the beginning to create space on the board. Then i focused on creating and clearing licorice in the middle and hoped that the rest of the board would take care of itself. Was able to complete it on the last move. Good luck all!

Anonymous said...

This time it is the licorice.
Every level in the past 10 ones has an impossible reach and only possible to pass by the kindness of king.
Every level I read that a loyal player say goodbye.
And now it is my turn.
Enough!
Goodbye

Anonymous said...

Posting for luck, using space dash isn’t helping as the licorice isn’t falling and I’ve used up all other specials

Anonymous said...

Got it using space dash and a check mark candy. Reset until CB was next to wrap, and if I had a chance to match 3 under the licorice dispenser after I cleared some licorice, I made a move somewhere else so that on my next move when I matched the 3, licorice would fall.

Redjam said...

Been trying this for days...can’t get enough licorice even with the space helmet & added ✔️Booster...not a fun level at all!

Anonymous said...

Generally only 1 licorice drops at a time so getting 18 to drop in 15 moves is unlikely to happen.

Getting freaking of crap levels
No cascades on mobile .. Ever
Now play on my tablet I'll get cascades
Why are they different ...Getting old
This has not been fun... .I don't mind hard. ...But stupid and no ingredients ever falling is stupid. ..

michelle mcbride said...

Been there ..Stupid stupid crap game

Liz said...

Level 3356 is clearly rigged. Multiple times I have cleared all the licorice in the first move and there are no more licorice to fall down in all the remaining moves though massive boosters used all through trying. This is once again another level to suck money and boosters from users until magically a few weeks go by and it’s fixed by Candy Crush. This is happening more and more lately. These tactics by Candy Crush will put this into the gaming grave. How do you not do quality control? Of course they do quality control and this is designed to Line Candy Crush’s pockets.

With the long list of comments from everyone, it's obvious that this is another lucky board only!! Even Cookie calls it impossible!!! I have used up my boosters, bars for extra moves, space dash, combining cb's!! Nothing!! Space dash to collect boosters for every try!!! Used up check mark candies!! I can get within 9!!! Why waste boosters??!!! I feel like I am being forced into buying bars to passs!! Coincidentally the piggy bank filled with gold bars is a special price!!! Wait for a lucky board or quit??!! Way to treat loyal players!!

Anonymous said...

Yayyyyyyyy!! They sorted it :) x

Robyn Lor said...

This level is ridiculously dumb!! I've used Space Dash like 5 times and my surprise candy bonuses but can never get enough liquorice to fall!!!!! Last time I used to color bombs together, had only like 8 more liquorice to collect but every surprise candy was chocolate or a blocker!!! I got down to 3 liquorice, with about 5 moves left, so I carefully used my hand switches and hammers. Well, that was also futile!!! Needless to say, my boosters are gone and so is my patience! Posting for a break!!! Or as everyone says, "luck".

Anonymous said...

Not enough licorice falls from the dispenser and none of the special candies turn into licorice. I guess this is the end for all of us unless they change it. I will never buy more gold bars because King has become totally unfair to us and in my opinion they don't deserve my money. They are driving away some of their best customers. Stupid, stupid game and stupid, stupid King.

This is impossible

Helen said...

Impossible as liquorice doesn't drop, got down to needing only 4 liquorice on 3 occasions then ran out of moves, when you spin the wheel it never seems to stop on 'extra moves'

Player Player said...

Sage here: whew! That was rough and then . . Thanks for the luck.

Oh so want a lucky board all these levels just need so many boosters.
Thanks.

this level is clearly rigged to get people to buy more moves. I started with full space dash, collected all the chocolate and jellies needed, but still needed 8 licorice when I ran out of moves. I had enough gold bars to buy 5 extra moves. Started to play and used some hammers and switches to try to get licorice to drop down. 7 came down but never the last one until I played the final move, and then the last licorice came down. I didn't have any more gold bars and I certainly wasn't going to buy any so I had to give up, losing all my boosters and store of gold bars. So, I'm just going to build up my supply again and I'll probably be stuck here forever or until I build up 100 gold bars.

Geeze, really? Has anyone else noticed most of the levels are either hard or super hard? You guys bored over there and can't think of any other way to make money? Won't get a cent from me EVER!

Kerry Ferrazza said...

I'm impatiently waiting for this to be addressed. For nearly a week the #1 grossing app is inop, this should be a priority!

Robyn Lor said...

Agree! This is impossible without paying to win!!! I'm done! Forget you King!!!!!

Robyn Lor said...

Same here! I QUIT.

Robyn Lor said...

Buh bye king!!! We should ALL quit. Just saying. Peace out peeps. ✌❤

I am just about done with this game. Used my boosters and still can't win this . Rigged not to win. No fun anymore.

Anonymous said...

35 licorice in 15 moves... It's impossible! I've played hundreds of times and can't win. Licorice doesn't drop. The game isn't fun anymore Can't participate in any of the collect challenges. I don't want to quit, but I literally can't move forward! Are they trying to get us to quit?!

Not enough licorice falls down.posting for lucky board

Joe Arbogast said...

King..add 10 more moves. I'm done until you do

Randall Branham said...

Still waiting on lucky board. I don't think this one is possible because licorice doesn't fall down

Anonymous said...

Yay, they fixed this level so I won first time without any boosters this morning. Thank you!

Barbra said...

Go back and play levels 606, 607, and 608 all which are very easy levels to get a color bomb, a strip and wrap, and 3 extra moves. I passed the first time on the level with 4 moves to spare by doing this!

Never had Space Dash said...

I got it on my 2nd try. I did not use any of my boosters but i did have a free sprinkle that I won. I just matched it with a color and played the game. I didn't read Cookies tip or watch the video so I don't know what she suggested.
