Getting four ingredients to the bottom of the board can be tricky, especially with a board like this in Candy Crush level 288. Before you can get to the transporters, you first have to hurdle the licorice cages and meringue blockers. And as if to make things even harder, the transporters are placed every after column, so you have to make sure that your ingredients are placed in the correct columns.
It took me lots of frustrated tries to finally figure out how to complete this pesky level. But hopefully, with the following Candy Crush strategies, it won’t take you that long to get past this level with flying colors.
- Objective: Bring down the ingredients and score at least 40,000 points.
- Moves: 55
- Stars: 1 star = 40,000 points; 2 stars = 75,000 points; 3 stars = 90,000 points
As I previously mentioned, the transporters are placed at alternate columns at the bottom of the board. Luckily, the ingredient generators are also placed in the same columns where the transporters are, so you don’t have to move the ingredients anymore if you want to shoot them into the transporters. Ideally, all ingredients should be placed in one column, but if you can’t do that, it’s best to leave them where they are and just work around them.

Make as many vertical striped candies as possible and set them off in the columns where the ingredients are located. Such candies will also be of big help in getting rid of the blockers in other columns.
During my gameplay, I also noticed that other candy combinations, like the striped plus wrapped candy and color bomb plus striped candy, can also help bring down the ingredients. They can also destroy blockers in adjacent columns, so it is advisable to just create as many combos as you can. But remember, this is easier said than done, so always be on the lookout for opportunities to create powerful combos.

Unlike other ingredient levels, do not just make your moves under the ingredient you’re trying to bring down. With the structure of the board, you also have to get through licorice candies and meringue blockers before you can finally reach your level objective. Therefore, you also need to pay attention to getting rid of the blockers, which is best done through candy combos.
After you get past this not-so-easy level, get ready to destroy more blockers in 289, and then a very complicated map in Candy Crush level 290. A mountain of multiple layered meringue will not make a ReadyGamer’s task very easy in that level. Good luck!
