Candy Crush Saga Level 3488 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 3488 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 3488 is a dual task level, you have to collect the ingredients and clear the jelly to complete the level. This is quite a complicated board and timing is important to clear the hard to reach candies.
In the bottom left section there are stripe dispensers, make moves in that section until you get stripes and drop them down onto the conveyor. Once the stripe/stripes are on the conveyor make moves at the top right until the stripe moves up there, then switch the stripe to hit the wrapped candies top left. If the stripe drops off the conveyor at the top don't worry, you can either use it to hit the popcorn on the left or wait until you get another stripe to match it with. Ultimately you want to hit the wraps so that they grow the popcorn, then the resulting colourbomb will drop into the bottom right.
Once the colourbomb is in the bottom right section hit it with a stripe from the left and this will allow wrapped candies to drop from the top left into the middle of the popcorns. Hit these wraps with stripes and they will grow the remaining popcorns.
All the time you are doing this you need to be clearing the blockers top right to get the ingredients out of the exits at the top right.

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.

Very hard level. The hardest part I find is having to deal with so much licorice which makes it nearly impossible.

Unknown said...

Impossible grrrrr

Anonymous said...

First of all there aren't enough moves and too much licorice to clear.
Impossible level as it is now....

2sweet said...

Moves are now 18! Ridiculous cant be done in that amount! Cookie has 30 moves

Anonymous said...

can not be done in 18 moves , simply impossible!

Appu said...

Guys..I have completed the episode ..this level is tricky ..I used few hammers to pass this level..

Appu said...

3498 is more challenging than this. Very less moves in that level..all the best guys!!

Silage said...

Another joke.

Ridiculous! Was impossible to pass in 30 moves...and now down to 18 moves!
Don't waste your time and boosters for now, King is not realistic.

Unknown said...

Dude,you start with 33 moves there is only 18! You start with more stuff then I have ever seen even after beating 8 levels in a row. You are a complete fraud!

Unknown said...

He has 33

Took a space dash (double chocolate bomb and 3 extra moves), a hand switch and hammer. Moving on.

SAB said...

started with 2cb side by side, which helped in clearing a few blockers. But in the end, used 3 hand switches to complete level. URGH, glad to be moving on.

More moves please king!

Unknown said...

Why do you reduce moves? Afraid we'll beat it too quickly?

Anonymous said...

My gosh I’ve never seen a complicated explanation in my life. The licorice makes it impossible. All the special candies in the world won’t get past them. Good luck everyone.

Ada Sity said...

The video starts with 30 moves but actually there is only 18!!! I would like to see video that starts with 18 moves!!

Carol the elder said...

This is more and more, less and less fun! I used my gold bar stash to get more moves twice plus a couple hammers to hit the lower right section. If it keeps on like this, it may be my last episode. Even at my age, I do have another life!

Anonymous said...

King is at its crappy best again to reduce to 18 moves. F**k the developer

Used 2 hammers and 2 hand switches, plus space dash (21 moves; double CB to start) after first 5 attempts failed. I had also added fish booster.

This level is impossible with all the licorice. Getting no where. Posting for luck.

Using up so many boosters these last few levels. Posting for luck.

18 moves make this impossible without using many boosters. Posting for luck .

Not a fun level by any means. Frustrating. Posting for lucky board.

Jannie said...

To Carol the elder please don't give up, your tips and cookies are great. Having said that I'm very stuck on this level, and I don't have another life!!!!

Anonymous said...

Show a video with 18 moves, not 30. Big difference . Posting for luck.

Anonymous said...

What is going on with this level? I have been working on it all morning and am not even getting close! UNBELIEVABLE! Please I need help!

Kim Swartz said...

May wait to see if King modifies it. Anything you can’t win with attention, luck and space dash is just silly.

JW said...

I agree this is impossible, not even close. If the licorice disappeared for at least a few moves it may be possible.

Anonymous said...

I don't *think* you need to be clearing licorice in this one? There's no jelly underneath it and, with the way the board is designed, you can hit the key squares with stripes from the left. Wraps drop through to that central square bottom right, and you can then hit those with stripes, too... all of which takes so many of the pathetic number of moves available that there's nothing left to clear all the blockers, the jelly underneath them and get the ingredients out. It's a nicely designed board, and needs a bit of thought for a change, but the number of moves ruins it all once again. What a shame.

Anonymous said...

Posting for luck. This one is killing me!

Anna said...

I've managed to clear the bottom right corner and get the ingredients up to the top right corner and off the conveyer a couple of times...but not enough moves to clear all the blockers!

Finally passed. Used full spacedash with fish and wrap/stripe boosters. Kept resetting board until two wraps were side by side on top of the top right blockers. Switched the wraps together. Clears up the top right nicely. Followed Cookie's advice from there. Only used one hammer. Good luck.

Anonymous said...

Horrible, impossible level. Where are the fun a is getting tedious. Waiting for lucky board.

Anonymous said...

No way is this possible!! If the bombs and CB would drop on to the actual playing board, just might be possible...ugh getting so tired of passing when King decides to give you a lucky board!!!

TNC said...

Impossible without blowing lots of boosters and gold bars. If they keep this up I will be done like Carol the elder. Had to add stripe wrap, buy 5 extra moves, spun for 5 more, and bought a third set of 5 moves, and used hammers. There was not a drop of fun in this level. And sounds like the next is just as bad.

Pilofun said...

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
I'm getting nowhere fast. Best I've done is cleared the top ritght section, and all the jelly, but the acorns weren't all up there.
Needs MORE moves.

Anonymous said...

I followed JL’s suggestion of starting with two wraps top right. This plus two hand swaps at the end finally got me over the line. Before that I wasn’t even close. - Boris

VERY HARD LEVEL POSTING FOR LUCK

Anonymous said...

This level is no fun! Seems impossible! Posting for luck!

Anna said...

Finally passed! Had the full space dash so apologies to those who don't get it. Started with CB stripe combo with plenty of the stripe colour in the top right section to hit both top sections. Then had a bit of luck...but still needed a handswitch for the last acorn.

Anonymous said...

Impossible with 18 moves! Quitting for good this time! No way to complete it even with all the boosters I had! Good luck for you out there!

Pilofun said...

Finally got thru. VERY lucky board and still needed a hand switch, hammer and 5 extra moves. Glad to be done with that one!!

Anonymous said...

This was so hard I resorted to using my hammers to smash the wrapped candies in the upper left as soon as they appeared. That left me with enough moves to clear the blockers in the top right. The bottom left seemed to take care of itself but I finally passed after a day of trying. Not fun. I’m contemplating quitting once all my boosters are gone. I agree with Carol the Elder, this is less and less fun.

Blimey, I really can’t do this one, HELP

Another very easy level.
Buy a massive amount of hammers. Thats it, or wait for cc to allow you to proceed.
No skills required.

Anonymous said...

This morning King increased the moves to something doable.....still hard but using the boosters from the Space Dash and one of my speckled ball boosters I was able to complete this level! Reset the game until you have the square candy and striped ball beside each other in the top right side and the 2 chocolate balls in the bottom left side together. Hit the square and striped candy together first to bring down the square candies and then hit the 2 chocolate balls together to clear the board. After that watch for any combinations to clear the right side and to bring down the acorns onto the conveyor belt. Good luck....glad to be finished this level!

Dee said...

Passed on first try. Had 1 CB and saved it to hit a wrap candy. Key is to get horizontal stripes on conveyor to hit wraps in upper left. Watch for wraps in lower right and hit with CB or stripes. Used one hammer and one switch to end.

Unknown said...

Finally got it after 3 days playing on 3 devices. No boosts used(didn’t have any, refuse to buy) I found that if you can break up the upper right board first you get closer. Eventually cleared

Emsa8 said...

I know you will hate me - but I liked this level and think it's a challenge, but doable with the actual 26 moves (I finished after 25) and little help. If you cannot achieve a helmet, you need CB + Wrap from your own stock (daily booster or spinning wheel). You must start with cb+wrap, that's crucial and many colors of the wrap (at least 3) should be in the top right field. Don't care about liquorice!! You won't get through. Do everything with the stripes from the dispenders! The rest cookie described perfectly. First open popcorn top left, then try to hit the CB and later wrap in the bottom right field and hit fields in the top right as much as possible (wraps or combos are very fine). It's a nice, tricky level you cannot solve with many boosters or just hitting 2 CB together. That's great and 26 moves (or let's say 30) are fair. At least in my opinion.

Looked interesting but fed up with it now.

Anonymous said...

Must be my lucky day. Only 12 moves now.😕

Anonymous said...

That was fun. NOT!!! After many tries, finally got it by starting with a wrap/stripe upper left which cleared a bit of the blockers. After that I pretty much followed Cookie's advice. So happy to be moving on; tis week King didn't grace me with the space dash :(

Posting for lucky board. Really need more moves

Emeka Udeawka said...

King wants to hold you up on this level while they develop more levels. Frustrating level.

danddely said...

HORRIBLE, NASTY & bang out of order level, be prepared to be stuck for days unless you have a shed load of boosters. Ever the closer to just quitting now as beyond fun any more!

Anonymous said...

ANOTHER ABSURD LEVEL, KING. where did the fun for?

sultanate shaikh said...

Difficult level. Tried all the boosters no luck. Even 25 moves are not enough. Need a lucky board. Posting for luck

agnes power said...

Only 18 moves not nearly enough. Posting for luck and a lucky board please!!!

Dieter Heinz said...

The most tips from Carol are, start with space dash. So good, but what shall I do when I don't have?

Dieter Heinz said...

Please King take away this helmet and space dash. The same right for all.

sultanate shaikh said...

Rightly said. Everyone should be given equal opportunity to get through the levels. Some are given the helmets and space dash and they get through the whole episode in few hours and we play one level for days together.

Need a lucky board posting for luck

having a hard time with this one.. licorice doesn't let you hit anything.. I must be doing something wrong... cant figure it out … posting for luck

Another shit level! Only 15 moves?! Whoever designed this level, please show yourself passing this level with 15 moves!! Otherwise stop fooling us!

Anonymous said...

Shit level for sure. So tired of this crappy ass game. It's getting worse the higher we go. WTF!

Kathy said...

Got it. The game is up from 18 moves to 26 now, and 29 moves with the full SD helmet. I followed the suggestion to start with the helmet and fish booster. Reset until 2 wrapped candies sit side by side on the top left right over the blockers. Then followed the tips by Cookie and Carol the elder.

Ruby Lewis said...

Why so hard King. Takes luck and too much money

Ruby Lewis said...

Still on this level. King has a tv commercial that says relax and play. How do you relax in levels like this?

Dieter Heinz said...

Now I passed it with one hand and no other booster. But I needed a lot of attempts.
