Candy Crush Saga Level 3490 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 3490 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
You have to collect red candies, blockers and licorice to complete level 3490 Candy CXrush Saga.
You start with quite a few red candies on the board but they are locked in licorice so can't be collected until they are unlocked, but don't worry too much about collecting the reds to begin with as they will be collected as you play.
The hardest things to collect are the licorice whirls, they drop from the dispensers but you need a lot and you need to concentrate on collecting the keys so the licorice has to be secondary to that. The keys drop from the dispenser near the bottom of the board so you need to clear candies from under the dispenser to get them dropping. The sooner you can get the keys dropping the better chance you will have of clearing the level. The keys unlock a colourbomb first and then, more importantly they will unlock 2 UFO's. The UFO's will collect the blockers for you but will usually ignore the licorice so this is why it can be tricky to collect.
The licorice will only drop if there is space for it under the dispensers and if you don't collect any with your moves, so when you want the licorice to drop you need to make a move low down on the board below the dispensers but without clearing any.

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.

Finally a doable level! I started with a double wrap and worked on getting the keys as Cookie suggests. It suddenly fell in place.

Any one notice the red candies where positioned as an outline of a heart?

Very boring level.
Cc is playing, not me.
Only one move available at a time.
Time to quit cc.

Got it first try by resetting until my CB and wrap were next to each other. I got very lucky collecting keys as there were always the right colors nearby to make instant matches. I was sweating the licorice but after I set off the UFOs, I only had 2 licorice left to collect with 4 moves left so I was able to match 3 candies under a dispenser and get the last 2 licorice with 2 moves left.

15 moves makes this impossible.

Seems to me that most of the level in the last couple episodes could be interesting and fun but they intentionally cut the number of moves to force us to use boosters.

I've tried everything listed here and can't get enough licorice to fall to collect in 15 moves. Another shitass level from King! Hate it.

Almost Impossible with just 15 moves… Finally got a lucky board, used all the space dash boosters at the beginning, plus a 3rd CB, and ended up using a hand and a hammer to finish...good luck to all on this miserable level.

This level is BS! Not playing until they fix it.

I only got 15moves and tried everything but this way out impossible or rather ridiculous to clear unless you buy boosters!

I am so close to deleting CC. It’s just become tedious, boring and just requires luck. No skill required. CC is just mean to reduce this game to 15 moves down from 30, and doesn’t want us to have fun. It’s impossible for most. This is has now become a time waster and a bore. Disappointed and disgusted with CC after sticking with this game for so long. I’M OUT!

Not sure whether to get loan for boosters or do what my friends have done & quit this stupidity? Never enough liquorice dropping even with boosters? Levels are just ridiculous & suck the fun out of it.

Only 15 moves instead of 30. Stupid. CC do something about it please !! It's not fun anymore. I had 3 moves left, but there was no licorice falling down. CC tells us that the licorice will only drop if there is space for it under the dispensers, so I did, but there wasn't any coming. Not possible in 15 moves.

Day 3 & still no where near close! This is a fix level Im sure?

Only 15 moves and they are limited. Frustrating posting for luck and a lucky board

Only 15 moves impossible to finish the level. Specially for those who have never got a helmet or space dash. I am one of those who have been playing without them. Need a lucky board. Posting for luck
