Candy Crush Saga Level 280

Tips for level 280 Candy Crush Saga
There's no jelly under the meringues, so don't waste time crushing into them. Just clear the jelly that's visible on the board, then send your jelly fish out to destroy the jelly in the corners.
The only trick is not to set the jelly fish off until you
've cleared the rest of the jelly that's in play. And don't bother mixing it with a special candy because there is no candy in those squares to make a special with.

don't pop the fish until all the jelly in the middle is cleared -- save it for the corners, and voila.

The three fish alone will not be enough to break the four corner jellies, so once you have the 3 fish remaining, try to combine them with a color bomb, striped or wrapped candy so you get extra fish. Explosions also trigger more fish, but I'm not sure which type of explosion. PM

♥ Good tip! Worked for me. Sometimes the board won't let you save them until the end. Keep trying til you can.

Board thinks the fish should swim free no matter what after over 100 attempts. Horrid level.

Well the top comment was correct..wish I hadn't read the others. I just got it out after about 15 lives, I had no special combos...with 6 turns left, I burst all the fish one by one, and voila is right..done!! 3 fish get released each time, 3 x 4 = 12, 4 corners take 2 hits each!! DONE!!!

Great tip! Thank you! After struggling with this forever, I did the first try by saving the fish for last. Thanks again!!

Just wanted to clarify about the 'save the fish' strategy... (try to) clear all the double jelly in the middle, saving the fish for last. if you can activate the 3 fish in the # of remaining moves you have, you're golden!
**You have 3 fish, each one sends in 3 extra fish to destroy jelly.
3 x 3 = 9
**In each of the 4 corners there's a square of double jelly.
4 x 2 = 8

Do as the first said, leave the fish for last but if u can in the end combine donut with a fish that one fish will create nine fish and presto corner jellies are gone!

I didn't have luck with using only the jellies, perhaps because I didn't match them with anything striped (even though I left them for last multiple times). I always had one jelly left over. What got me through was sheer luck. I wound up with a wrapped/striped combo at the bottom of the board that took out the last right corner jelly.

Oops, sorry, meant "with using only the fish."

I just thought I was about to win this level, cleared all the middle jelly, saved the fish for last. Didn't combine them with anything and didn't win! Two of the last fish went and popped non-jelly squares! So frustrating.

Like an idiot, I thought all the squares/jelly had to be cleared and I thought "no way" fortunately, I checked here and saw that other than the middle jelly, it was just the 4 corners. DUH! Went back to the game, lucked out with some chocolate balls and stripes and wham! Did it in one go!

Top comment was the it. Got it on the 1st try after reading.

I didn't read the hints. Usually don't until try three or more times. Was super easy after combining a speckled ball with fish. The rest took care of themselves and I didn't save any fish for last. Hope this helps a little.

c/candycrush here.

Don't be tempted to use the fish till all the middle jellies are cleared. Check before a move that it isn't likely to set one off.
It took me a while to get through even following this. Take heart, there are no jellies under those cream/marmalade edges, only in the middle and corners.
Once the middle is cleared, try to set a fish free. I did, then I had a stripe and fish and it did it for me, with one fish left over.

Just keep the fish for the corners. Clear the middle jelly furst. Enjoyable.

the fish alone won't do the job, need to combine with a strip or package, chocolate ball helps clear the board too.

Top comment did it! Thanks so much!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have been stuck on this level. I followed comment #1's advice and saved the fish for last and beat it on the first try!

sue t. said...

OMG- your advice worked the first time out! Thanks so much, I had been approaching the level completely wrong!

Got level on 3rd attempt, but not all jelly was cleared. Has this happened to anyone? Very pleased though!
