Candy Crush Saga Level 3493 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 3493 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 3493 is a jelly level with 16 moves.
The first and most important thing to do is get candies into the middle section. You won't get very far if you can't get them there as that is where all the jelly is. You can try to do it the hard way using stripes and stripe/wrap combos, but you are unlikely to get very far that way.
The best way, maybe the only way, to get the middle of the board moving is with a colourbomb combo. Switch a colourbomb with either a stripe or another colourbomb to unlock some, or all, of the locked cells and then you will be able to get some candies into the fenced section using other combos.
Once there are candies in the middle look for moves there to clear the chocolate and licorice and since there are only three colours on the board at the moment it is pretty easy to make special candies and combos to get the jelly cleared.
The hardest part of this level is getting started on unlocking the locked licorice and chocolate, but once that is done the cascades will usually take care of the rest for you.
The video below starts with 16 moves but is completed in 13 moves so if the moves are reduced hopefully it will 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.

Reset until you get double color bomb and that should do it. I also,added a fish to be sure, but probably didn't need it.

Got this one first try a couple of weeks ago. Just for fun played it again. You really have to watch that licorice as it can overtake that last jelly or two and keep replacing itself when attempting to get those last few jellies.

After failing when I started with full space dash, I tried this without boosters. I managed to get 2 cb combos, but still couldn't win. This is impossible until the candy crush gods deem you worthy to pass. Ugh!

double CB together did not work for me. Can't even come close.

There are just too many blockers and not enough moves to beat this level. The licorice fills up any space that's cleared. I'm ready to give up.

Why can't I get the lucky board like the video?

Only 16 moves can't even get close. Got 2 CBs together a couple of times still stuck on this level. Need a lucky board posting for luck

The game has picked up a little, but still not enough moves and too much licorice.

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