Candy Crush Saga Level 3440 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 3440 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
You have to clear the blockers to complete level 3440 Candy Crush Saga.
You don't have many moves so to make each move effective it is better to work at the bottom of the board to create cascades which will help clear more blockers as the candies drop to fill the spaces.
Even though you want to be making moves at the bottom you still need to check the rest of the board for chances to make special candies and combos.
Use the conveyor to get combos together or to get candies into position to make stripes, wraps and colourbombs.
Colourbombs on their own are not very effective, but switched with a stripe or a wrap they will be really useful for clearing the blockers.

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.

Thanks to Cookie!!!! Your tips really helped a lot. Some wicked bad levels for sure. Used so many hammers and switches. See you next Wednesday.

Ronnie Maynard said...

Fun episodes.

Rick said...

Although I completed all the levels in these 2 episodes on the first go except 3423 and 3440 (2 tries), there are several levels that are quite challenging that I would not have completed them without using boosters. These 2 episodes depleted my hammers and hand switches on my iPad and Samsung tablets that I have to use my computer to complete the second episode.
Till next Wednesday.

Bear with me said...

Check mark definitely helped with the last level. I’m glad to see Rick, that I am not the only one who ended up using a lot of hammers and switches in order to finish both episodes. I don’t know if I can keep up the pace of dealing with two episodes every other week. I’m playing for sugar drops daily to replenish my hammers and switches. I only play on my IPad but maybe I should start stocking up on boosters on my phone too. Anyway - hope everyone has a great weekend. Til next Wednesday.

Eileen & Skip said...

Stuck on last level, wonder why the fish do not eat the blockers on this level?

Rick said...

To Bear with me, I have to play for sugar drops, too, to replenish my boosters. I don't play it everyday because it takes about an hour to collect the 180 to get the lollipops and/or hand switches. Before I played the 2 episodes I had only about 6 each on my iPad and 9 each on my Samsung tablet and less than 20 each on the PC. The rewards are doubled on the PC that is why I have more there. Mobile is more convenient though, because I can play for sugar drops anywhere in the house, unlike on the PC where you have to sit in front of it.

Complete two episode this week . Pass level 3440 . Waiting for next episode next week .

msnega said...

Anyone on level 3477? Can't figure how to make the check candies come out. May have to use a check booster. Hate using boosters if I don't have to.

Eileen & Skip said...

When playing for sugar drops, I play on the King Website as they double the number collected if you win the level. Best levels for me are 1476, 1168, 1137 & 666, almost always fill the sugar track by playing just these 4 levels & can fit in 2 sugar tracks a day.

Anna Errington said...

Rick, how can you get 28/30 the first time?? That's over 90%!!! I do well to get 15/30 and not even that. These last two episodes I got exactly half on the first go.
and...
To Msnega I am stuck on 3477 and even using my check booster I never got enough. I just wasted a bunch of them[boosters].

carlton said...

Doing 2 episodes every other week..I'm not waiting
..i have noticed that when there is one episode it tends to be rather easy but when there are 2 the levels are much harder..if you are going to do 2 episodes how about one on Wed and one on sat or sun....but one per week is the preferred choice..
Now I'm forced to play sugar drops again

carlton said...

Go back and read his post..he basically depleted his supply of hand switches and hammers and other boosterz..many times you just want to get through and not have to play that level again

Basha Bobkiewicz said...

I too used a ton of switches and hammers on these two levels. Most challenging in a while. Until next week.

Posting for luck on this one.

Whew...this last episode was brutal. I didn't think the first episode was as hard as the second, though there were a few very difficult levels. I started with about 26 hand switches and lollipops and have 7 left of each so will also be playing for sugar drops.

carlton said...

Hey Sharon and Carol the Elder...where are you guys

Bear with me said...

Carlton - I too am wondering where the ladies are. Hope all is well. Maybe it stopped raining and Carol the Elder is on the golf course. 😀

Never pay a cent Bobby said...

I don't spend my spare time playing for sugar drops (boring!) and still manage to get by with boosters from Didi, helmets, space dash and drops that come when playing the levels.

Ellie said...

Carlton, this blog no longer lets me make comments on my iPhone. I can type the comment then when I try to post it, it’s deleted. My iPad suddenly permitted the post now.
Perhaps that’s what happened to Sharon and Carol the Elder. I could read the posts but not enter any

Ellie said...

On 3340, use the check mark, then you don’t have to clear the entire board

Hi Carlton and Bear with me - I'm here. Finished both episodes by Wednesday around 8:30 pm. In another province visiting and never posting when I finished.
Like never pay a cent Bobby, I never play for sugar drops just the ones I collect while playing an episode. Treat calender, Didi and Rami, star challenge, daily wheel
all provide enough. Luckily I have hundreds that have added up since Magic and Space Dash. Hope we don't have two episodes next week.
Sharon

Glow said...

3064 and 2976 are pretty good as well and can easily be passed without boosters!

Carol the elder said...

Hi everyone! I finally made it although I was ready to call it quits at 3435! I certainly depleted my store of hammers. I was also ready to quit when I saw two episodes lined up on Wednesday. I have also been having to play on my older iPad which got a little wonky last week. The first episode was definitely more enjoyable than the last. Yes, the weather has improved and I have been on the golf course at last. I have a wonderful group of golfing friends and I also volunteer at our hospital where I have other buddies. It's friends who keep me going as y'all have done in our CC group. I'm glad to see some new names here along with the faithful helpers who have helped me through.

First, can you take your personal comments to each other somewhere else? I go to this site to get advice or ar least commiserate with those who are struggling. Also, if you finished really quickly, are you here to brag? We all know the game is 90% luck. What I would like to know is how do you win using the check mark? I only get one per game. It is useless. Do you think they have changed this one?

Hi Fellow Crushers,
I don’t give a FF if you completed the episodes or did it on the first try. I come to this site for advice or to give advice on how to pass a game.
Why not start your own site called Candy Bragadotious and get the hell off here.

Well said. I couldn't have worded it better. Bragging only serves the person who posts it.I can imagine We'll be getting advice next on playing golf next.

I don’t understand why some people have to get nasty on this site. It’s just a game. What’s the difference between commiserating with fellow crushers or expressing relief when you have successfully passed an episode? That’s not bragging, and the people you are slamming are some of the ones Who have been providing tips for a very long time.
As far as check marks are concerned, how many you get is pretty random but in general I usually get several at least and find them helpful.

I’m having trouble with this one. When I use a Checkmark, it only gives me blockers, not helpful at all.
Just not enough moves. I need a lucky board. Used all my hammers and blockers.

Too hard. Lucky board please

Lucky Board please

2sweet said...

I have 5 colours on the board!! So not as easy to make wraps etc

michelle mcbride said...

How do I play on king website

Anonymous said...

The object of this level is to collect 85 blockers. So of course the checkmark booster is going to give you blockers. What else would it give you?

Anonymous said...

My Android version is different from what is shown. There are 5 colours on my board. It is near to impossible to create enough combos to clear this level.

Anonymous said...

Everyone has had five colours since it came out on mobile.
Not just you!

Cherrelle Piotraschke said...

Another boring & tedious level!! Used up all my lucky candies, hammers, & hand switches on this level!! Makes no difference. What a waste of boosters. You either have to buy extra moves. Or be sick & tired of waiting for the lucky board!!

Karen said...

Who gives you the hints you so badly need and are looking for to pass? Those who passed and occasionally brag! And why do you find cheerful comments between the community of those helping you so offensive? Ungrateful crab asses.
