Level 288 is the thirteenth level in Candy Clouds and the 73rd ingredients level. To pass this level, you must collect 2 hazelnuts and 2 cherries in 55 moves or fewer. When you complete the level, Sugar Crush is activated and will score you additional points.


  • The isolation of spaces at the bottom of the board along with three layered frosting proves difficult to get rid of and creates an awkward board. Try to find options to make striped candies to try to chip away at the 3-layer frosting.
  • This level is much harder in the web version because there is a glitch where the 5 striped candies only remove 1 layer of frosting at a time.
  • The second, third, and fourth ingredients get dropped at moves 45, 35, and 25 respectively.

  • Set off the striped candies at the bottom as soon as possible.
  • Create horizontal striped candies or striped + colour bomb combinations to clear the frosting and locked candies.

Earning More StarsEdit


  • The presence of five colours makes it easy to create special candies and is essential as special candies must be used to drop the ingredients.
  • The ingredient is worth 40,000 points. Hence, an additional 35,000 points for two stars and an additional 50,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
  • The player is required to earn an additional 640 points per move[1] for two stars and an additional 920 points per move[2] for three stars.
  • The upper frosting are not to hard to clear with five colours.
  • The lower frosting force the creation, in most cases, special candy combinations to clear them. All these can result in plenty of points being earned.
  • Most runs of passing the level will result in a huge number of moves left for sugar crush.


  • This is one of the four five-colour levels with 55 moves. The other levels are 512, 747 and 755.


  • The difficulty used to be split into very hard on the web version, and Somewhat easy on phone. The reason is that 5 striped candy activated at the same time only remove one layer of frosting on web version, while the same situation would have removed all layers of frosting on phone versions. Should any candy below the frosting gets destroyed, however, the uncovered striped candies nearby will slide down. This negates the above advantage the mobile device has. This has been fixed when Jiggly Gym is released for some.
