Candy Crush Saga Level 3418 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 3418 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
You need a fair amount of luck as well as very careful planning to complete level 3418 Candy Crush Saga. There is a lot of jelly to clear but this isn't the biggest problem. The big problem is getting past the bombs. The bombs have a 12 move countdown and are all locked in Marmalade to begin with so they have to be unlocked and cleared within the first 12 moves. To make matters even harder the bombs are trapped inside candy cane fences so they can't be matched, they have to be hit with combos.
This level can only be passed using colourbomb combos, from the start you need to be looking for chances to make colourbombs and when you get one don't be tempted to switch it too early, try to get a stripe or a wrap beside it if you can. A second colourbomb is also good, but to begin with this will only unlock the bombs that are in the marmalade, it won't clear them so it is better to use a stripe or wrap with a colourbomb to begin with. Once the bombs are free of the marmalade you can use a double colourbomb combo to clear the bombs.
Clearing the first lot of bombs is not the end of them, more will drop so you will have to keep an eye on them as the bombs are more likely to kill your game than running out of moves.
Keep making colourbombs and you should be able to clear the jelly. The video below was completed in 23 moves so if the moves are reduced in the future it should still 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.

Been working on this one for days... using color bombs combos... without coming close to any kind of success. Time bombs keep coming down and make it impossible to reach any corners. Simply impossible until made doable.
Really not enough moves to clear all those obstacles.
IMPOSSIBLE...

Jannie said...

Even with full space helmet and all boosters I cant do this level. Ive tried all combinations to begin with and still cant clear the bombs in the candy canes. Help.

Bear with me said...

Fish booster definitely helped, but still needed to use several hammers and switches. Stripe wrap combos aren’t hard to make, just need to get them to the area with the lowest bombs.

Anonymous said...

Started with a chocolate combo and then made three wrap/stripe combos. No other boosters.First try with 20 moves left.

Emsa8 said...

Wondering about the few comments. Find this level the first hard challenge in this episode and experienced the same like Jannie. Never came close enough even to clear the corners before at least one bomb went off. Will surely stay here a little bit longer....

Really really impossible after trying perhaps 100 times!

I took Cookie’s advice and started with CB/stripe combo. I had tried double CB to start and got nowhere. Also added fish and stripe boosters and had full SD. I finally won but used 3 hand switches and 3 hammers. I agree with Emsa8 that this is first big challenge in this episode.

Frustrating to say the least

can tell this is going to burn through a bunch of lives

Even with a full space dash I used 3 hand switches and 5 hammers. The chocolate in the corners was very hard to clear. Awful level. I hate the candy canes!!!

Anna Errington said...

I wrote the following on another blog a week ago. That was when I emptied my gold bar supply to finish this difficult level:
"I finally got the level using the cb's and stripes. However I used all five hammers and 2 switches plus 10 gold bars for extra turns.
will now play for sugar drops to replenish my supply. :-\"

Very difficult level. Posting for luck.

Used double chocolate sprinkles and still no luck. Frustrating level. Hard to make color bombs as suggested.

Anonymous said...

Fish is helpful but stilll no success. Ended because of bombs. Posting for luck today.

Carol the elder said...

Followed Bear with me and Elektra's advice and as they said it took some swaps and hammers. I needed to use 10 gold bars from my stash to get extra moves. After reading the comments, I just wanted to move on.

Does anyone else find it amazing that it's always the same 4-5 people who get through these impossible levels while everyone else who's been playing just as long, struggles and can't get past them?

Anonymous said...

Wow, this is a tough one.. I just went through about 30 saved lives and neve came close once. Looks like I'll be here a while, unless they make it a bit easier.

TNC said...

Maybe they made it easier? Just got through it first try 13 moves left and I don't normally sail through easily. Had full space dash with 2 CB together but I used one on a color first and another with a stripe. Lots of CB formed for me and stripes in the right places. Wishing you all a lucky board also!

I agree, impossible without luck. The bombs cut game short. Posting for luck.

Bye CC. This level is impossible and no fun. Loved the game up to now but this is too frustrating. Not getting a lucky board. Time to quit.

Another impossible level :(

Anonymous said...

I don't have space dash and in about 30 tries, the best I've done is 32 jellies left. This level is set up for failure from the get go. Bombs in marmalade, chocolate in marmalade, candy cane fences and the fact that it's almost impossible to make stripes along the edges or the top to get the bombs there. Come on King, stop making these stupid levels in an effort to make people buy boosters. All you're doing is alienating your players. I'm so frustrated right now, I don't even want to play anymore because I know there's no point.

You will never get past this level without a lucky board

Anonymous said...

Come on King... seriously!! Have used everything possible and still can't beat!!

Anonymous said...

It's possible to clear this stupid level if you have a golden space dash, a fish booster and a lucky board.
After many attempts I finally made it with 18 moves left. Hated this level, far beyond the most stupid one.
Bombs/chocolates covered in marmelades and keep dropping??? Candy fences and jellies??? No special candies to help out???
Still not classified as a "hard level" ???
King must be making fun of us...

Anon said...

Should be called super ridiculously impossible level that you can't pass without luck or tremendous use of boosters. Not fun or challenging. Just frstrating. Chris

Randall Branham said...

Absolutely impossible level without lots of boosters which I don't have. Waiting for a lucky board.

ABDUL SAMAD said...

Another ver hard level

ABDUL SAMAD said...

Really very hard level.

Stacey said...

Impossible!!!!! Should be listed as "super" hard. Can't come close even with space helmet. HELP!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Has to be the worse level in the last 30-40 levels,can't even get close to this one. What a waste of time. Probably the end of the game for me.

Impossible

Please send me a lucky board. Using every booster in every way and getting nowhere.

Anonymous said...

Seriously 77 jellies in 23 moves several covered in double layers, CC has lost its mind. No amount of special candies can get you thru this one.😕

Anna said...

Wow! Got stuck here for a while. Eventually took the advice above and added a fish booster to the space dash. Even then, it took a couple of goes to get all the jelly. Tough level.

The problem here is not the number of moves, there are plenty of those. The problem is the candy cane blocker lines fences, or whatever they are called, and the time bombs. Have tried several time many with space dash and many without it. I like a good challenge but this is reduicula and next to impossible with the fences and the time bombs. If king would remove either one of those features this would be a passable level. The only option is to just keep hoping for enough boosters and a lucky board

Geneviève said...

IMPOSSIBLE !!!!!!AU SECOURS !!!! AIDEZ MOI !!!!

mrs-baglady said...

I have done it. Don’t have a space helmet or anything like that. I had to buy 5 extra moves to stop the bombs going off. It was a gamble but it was looking hopeful so I risked it. I then had a space ship which helped the corner clearing but after that it was luck , sprinkle candies and exploding wraps. Hooray!

Crushing Daisy said...

Posting for luck. This level is hard with the candy canes and never ending 12 count bombs inside. Really need lucky board. Double CC is useless in beginning.

Geneviève said...

HOURRA !!!!!!!
Merci la chance ...
J'ai commencé sans aucun booster ...juste pour terminer ,j'ai utilisé un marteau !!!
Je continue donc mon passe-temps favori !
ENCORE MERCI MERCI MERCI .

I would like to say thank you so much cookie, you always work so hard to keep us a good radvice.I really appreciate your kind ,,,


FOR KING

I wonder, what's wrong with the developer's BRAIN.

seem they dont know that it;s impossible ...

what's wrong with the QC system of the game... doesn't test it before release it...

or just release to suck our money for booster,, not even listen the feedback

IMPOSSIBLE, KING!

Ian Snitch said...

This game is now getting beyond ridiculous! Making levels way too hard and getting stuck on 1 for 5-6 days is a joke! Seriously thinking of jacking it in not fun anymore!

Ian Snitch said...

I hour of free lives on two devices and still not got past this level!!!

Anonymous said...

This level doesnt see passable unless they change something. With a countdown of 12 moves you need to clear at least two lots of bombs. Fish aren't any help as they don't target the bombs. Also got two free hours play and still couldnt get anywhere near. Very difficult to get to the jelly undernear the chocolate. Getting very fed up!

I used to be addicted to CC, but no more. The fact that you have to scroll back to play old easy levels just to gain boosters (which have no effect on a ridiculously hard and impossible level such as this), tells me it’s time to give up.

I am now playing less and less because the fun has left this game. I feel sorry for those who buy boosters only to loose their chance of getting through when King produce these impossible levels. Don’t buy them please....you’re just giving into King by making them produce even more silly impossible and boring levels.

Emeka Udeawka said...

A very frustrating level. So hard.

K said...

Can’t come even close.

Vivien said...

Another awful level even using lots of boosters still can’t do it agree with all other comments IMPOSSIBLE

Can't get close. What else can I say. Posting for luck.

Billium said...

Frustrating and tedious. Must've played it over 100 times with the same hopeless results. Should be designated as "super hard." Developers need to rework this one. It sucks.

Here we go again. Going to play my peak games for a while. Tired of posting for luck on every level.
