Candy Crush Saga Level 3531 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 3531 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
There are only 9 jellies to clear but they are all in the middle of the board, surrounded by a candy cane fence and buried under locked blockers and waffles.
Another trick the developers like to use are the 5 move countdown bombs that drop from the dispensers at the top.
The only way to clear the middle of the board is by using combos, stripe/wrap combos or double stripe and double wrap combos. Colourbomb/stripe combos are also useful but the colourbomb is not so good switched with a wrap as most of the wraps won't hit anything useful.
You can't afford to leave the bombs too long before you clear them, but try to clear them using the combos as you clear the blockers in the middle of the board so you don't waste all your moves chasing the bombs.
There are stripe and wrap dispensers on each side of the board at the top and if you are careful you can get these together and use them to clear the middle of the board.
Don't waste moves making specials that won't do you any good, vertical stripes that are likely to drop down the sides, or horizontal stripes near the bottom.

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.

Surprised to see no comments here as yet. Have played this level dozens of times without getting even close to succeeding. Too many 5 moves timed bombs. Just getting nowhere fast but waiting for the lucky board.

I will agree with liloldady. This is a hard level. You need to use the elevator to set up combos which will be directed at the middle, but most of the time they self destruct before you get a chance to use them. Even when I get a colorbomb/strip combo, very few strips seem to hit the center. I have gotten close. If I had five hammers, I would be on the greener places.

How is this level being played. It is not available on my phone nor on my lap top. Is there something I'm unaware of

I'm so hoping we're not getting another double episode this week. I see Ms. Cookie is more than 30 episodes ahead.

Thanks to all your help. Sharon, you are a star.
I'm hoping for a single episode too. Particularly after no space dash last week . Jak

Fish are the way to go with this screen, if you have any to spare. They helped immensely.

I added the fish booster, got lots in the beginning but not at the end when I needed them the most. Used 5 extra moves and one hammer to finish. Barb

Good morning all. I played this level a couple of weeks ago. Sorry, liloldlady I did not comment here but I also had a tough time with the bombs being only 5 counts (moves) Now they put the count to 8. Then I played it again and got it first time. to Barb: Extra fish from the fish booster helps but sometimes just like the coconut wheels one gets the booster only at the beginning and not after that. Sometime one gets ample of the booster. Its all random. To Soaplady some of us who play levels before they are released have windows 10 with the candy crush app. The app can be downloaded from Google play. The Facebook version does not give levels ahead of time.

AGREED King please stop with the double level releases.

Sharon, on Facebook the group is called Candy Crush Saga All Help, but it's mostly people at all levels looking for help and they are always referred here to Cookie's blog so there is some kind of connection be the administrator of that group. I believe there are other CC groups too. I would love to be friends with you (and others on here) on Facebook. I hesitate to put my Facebook name out in public on this board. I wish we could figure out how to get together. Maybe we could start a Wednesday Club on FB? PS: I almost dread starting this new episode. I'm afraid I'm getting burned out and I don't like the comments I have seen on this level!

Carol the elder said...

After reading the comments for this level, I threw all three boosters in with the space dash. I reset a few times until I got a stripe match in line with the center. I tried to get stripe/match combos in line also. The fish were a big help! They came back and even multiplied so I didn't have to use a hammer on the last jelly.

Anna Errington said...

To Carol agreed. There should be a Facebook group called Wednesday Club.

Used SD and reset to combine two sprinkles. Had to use two hand swaps to be able to combine a sprinkle with a stripe. Had 8 count bombs.

CC from vero, they seemed to be on a different helmet level earlier. I hope you can get the space dash now. The next episode is more enjoyable. I hope you can catch up to us in a few days.

3 jours sur ce niveau sans résultat .
Un peu de chance SVP .Je n'ai plus aucun booster et je refuse d'en acheter !!! Aidez-moi . Merci .

Ok, I just created (or tried to) a group on Facebook titled "Candy Crush Wednesday Club". I made it public, so you should be able to search the title, then join. I may have to accept folks to join, not sure, but just request if it does.

Fish boosters were the ticket for this one. And of course double CBs to start off with. Had a hard time with the stripes, seems like I mostly got vertical ones and they blew up before they went to the top or bottom. Had a CB/stripe combo at one point with tons of colors on the board same as the stripe and NOT A SINGLE ONE hit the center LOL.
