I dont know what the secret to this level is. I have cleared everything on the board except the 3 little rocks on bottom left/center/right corners. But even there I hit each one twice. Im not sure what Im doing wrong. I think the game has a glitch

Admin said...

I haven't got to that level yet but If you join the group you can ask our top players what the secret is to this level.
Just click on the image top left where it says find friends and you will be added as soon as possible.

i think there is a glitch too, i hit the bottom three and they changed colors but it said i still didn't get it...

Anonymous said...

I got cleared when the squares at the bottom was down to metallic.

lady johanna said...

I have passed this level and I only hit the bottom 3 squares twice each and I passed the level...

Anonymous said...

Well obv there is a glitch then, got them all brown too but nothing happened... been playing now 10 hours straight lol

Anonymous said...

I still cannot pass this level even I hit the bottom 3 squares twice each.....anyone has same problem? I need help....

Anonymous said...

I believe there is a glitch!! I hit the bottom 3 twice each but nothing happen....

Anonymous said...

I have hit my 3 bottom squares and there is jelly under ALL three - why are they doing this?

Anonymous said...

I finally cleared it because of this thread. Just like the original post said...wait until the end and try NOT to use the fish until you cleared all the gels. 2 shots on the bottom 3 and it was all over. Makes no sense but who cares...this stupid level is over!

Anonymous said...

Only the fish can hit thru the rock... otherwise u have to clear them all the way thru.

Anonymous said...

Still did not manage to pass that level. Hit the bottom squares times and nothing.

Anonymous said...

Clear all the regular jelly first. Be very careful not to hit any fish, or special candy that will hit the rocks at the bottom while you do this. THEN, and only then, hit the fish. Two fish is all you need to clear the rocks.

Anonymous said...

Phew! Finally! thanks for the advice - it works!

Anonymous said...

Oh, thanks so much for the advice.. I hit the bottom rocks twice but it didn't clear the level, now I get that the fish actually eat the jelly under the rocks (as opposed to f.ex. striped candy that only helps to swipe off a layer)

Mikael Johansson said...

This is probably the reason. There are two layers of jelly under the rocks. If you get the fish to go to the rocks they clear the jelly without having to take away the sone first. Therefore, save the fishes until last.

Anonymous said...

Yes, only fish can eat the jelly under the rocks.
I failed when I used stripe to hit the bottom rock three times.
And I passed when I used fish only two times.

Anonymous said...

Thank you!! Without your tips I never would have done it!

Thanks for all that post here and help!! With this help I reached it finally, I even got 20 moves left at the end!!!! Finally after 2 days its done! Good luck guys!!!!!

[I also have this problem, and how to do?]

Ebru Kaya said...

I've cleared everything too. I had all the 3 fishes and Whatched out that i clear no rock. After that i used the fishes but they dont clear the rock, they clear any candys without gelee on the desk. Im very angry about that. What shell i do?

Marlon Sutanu said...

I faced the same problem too - Nones of my 3 fishes can kill rocks. It seems to be a bug since the demo shown was played on facebook. However, I am playing on Android phone, and the app with level 285 was just released two days ago only.

Anonymous said...

Yeah.. same prob.. ive cleared all regular jelly n save 3 fishes.. but none of the fish can kill rocks instead clear any candy..

Anonymous said...

The fishes don't kill rock. And too often when I fail, the box said there were 3 jellies to be clear but in fact there were 4 !!!! A bug or a glitch or whatever.....

Anonymous said...

I also save all the three fish but those fish just not going toward the rocks, what the hell!

robin said...

Same here- iPhone, just got the update. I save the fish and don't clear rock. Not working

Anonymous said...

Ditto!!!
On iPad: cleared all jelly except 3 bottom rocks, next used 2 or 3 fishes--but the do NOT go down to the bottom rocks as shown in the video above. They simply clear other candy on the board. :-/

Anonymous said...

Same here. I save the fish until the end when all the other gelatine is gone, but the fish just won't go to the rocks. They just eat random candy.

Anonymous said...

The tip does not work on Android. The fishes do not go under the rocks.

Karen Lynn said...

The same thing happened to me. I went onto my laptop and played it through my Facebook account and sailed through it 1st time. I then went back to using it on my android. Hope this helps :-)

Anonymous said...

Oooh--good tip! I'm going to try it now--thanks!!!
(And why didn't I think of that?!?)

kevin trinh said...

The same thing to me, i saved the fish after clearing all the gels and the fish just wouldn't eat the bottom 3 chocs. I have a picture to prove it.
I am playing on the iphone, all the YouTubes are from PC? So not sure if there's any differences.

Anonymous said...

You have to play this level on the computer. Playing with an iPhone/iPad/iPod or and android will not work!

Filipa Nicolau said...

The same with the ipad...

Anonymous said...

Agreed. I switched to play on my computer and got past the level right away !!!!!!

Anonymous said...

When I clear the jelly in the middle then hit the fish the fish don't head for the rocks, the just hit a random three blocks in the middle

Anonymous said...

Same here sum 1 plz help!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

UTTERLY ridiculous level!!!! stucked for DAYS!! followed all tips n tricks and that bloody fish just chose to eat random candy but not the bottom three!! argh!!!any pro can help me play n get this level over n done with! am tired of reading n following the tips! ='((((((

abc said...

I can confirm this is probably a glitch and CAN ONLY BE BEAT on a desktop/laptop computer. So stop asking for help and posting that your stuck and just go onto facebook from your comp and beat the level already!

Karen Lynn said...

My point from the start :-D

kevin trinh said...

Definitely the way to go, i passed that 'dang' level now from PC.

Anonymous said...

ITS ACTUALLY VERY SIMPLE

ALL YOU HACE TO DO IS CLEAR AS IT SAYS ALLLL THE JELLY! INCLUDING THE FISH

JUST IGNORE THE BOTTOM SQUARES

how i wish someone had told me this haha

Anonymous said...

But why is it possible to do it on a laptop and not on an iPad etc??????

Michelle said...

I too am on an android phone... I have cleared all the jelly many times but the fish never touch the blocks... They just go for the remaining candy.... If only the fish can complete the level then at the moment it's physically impossible!!

K squared said...

Impossible to do from iPad/iPhone bc like the rest of the game it's full of glitches.. I'm glad I wasted so many lives on this board before I found this thread,,.

Anonymous said...

Please do something in order to solve the problem above! I NEVER used pc,just my Android and i don't want to change my play mode and break my personal record!!

Anonymous said...

thanks for the tips, it is indeed two fish required to clear the bottom 3 squares, not necessarily to clear the entire square at the bottom but first you must clear ALL existing jellies before you utilise the fish to clear the last 3 at the bottom, good luck.

Tommy said...

I totally agree, don't want to get the app on facebook but only on the phone....

Jeff N said...

if you're having trouble with the fish not going to the bottom 3 squares I think that's a glitch on the mobile app. after trying for weeks on my phone and seeing the fish never go there.I played on Facebook and passed the level no problem because the fish went right to the bottom 3

Anonymous said...

Same here .. the fish doesn't go to the bottom rocks on Android.

Kim Parr said...

I tried for days on my phone and IPod, after reading these posts, I won on the first try using Facebook on my laptop. Good luck all!

Anonymous said...

It is like impossible to do it on my Ipad..coz the fish dont seem to go to the bottom even after all the jelly are cleared. After i read this post, I tried doing it on facebook using my laptop and I passed it with hitting the bottom 3 boxes twice with the fish just like the video showed!
Thanks for the tip otherwise I think I am still stuck!!

Anonymous said...

In order to pass this level ... Play on Ann actual computer .... YOU WILL NOT PASS ON IPhone or pad or android anything ....

Anonymous said...

Thank god I founds this thread! I would've been stuck on this level forever! Fittest though when I get the chance is straight to the computer instead of my phone! Woo hoo! :)

Melchior Mike said...

level 285 is definitely an error in it? because my fish are not in the pure blocks!!

Anonymous said...

when is the new levels online due out after 350

Carlos said...

All the Jelly cleaned, no jelly under the bottom squares, but anyway, the level wasn't won.

Thanks again CC, I love you have a forum for support... Burn in hell!!!

must be a glitche cos I've done it three times now on my iphone and the fish don't go anywhere near the bottom three. So will have to try on the laptop but this shouldn't happen if you can play on any device except pc

Anonymous said...

is there any way of passing this level on the iphone as i have not got facebook and dont really want one?

Anonymous said...

My fish don't touch the bottom blocks at all. Not a chance of me passing this level. Might be time to stop playing :(

Anonymous said...

Thank you will try this.
Fingers crossed

Anonymous said...

I'm so glad I read this thread. Been trying to play this level on an iPad and iPhone for DAYS! Will try on laptop tomorrow......

Janet Ball said...

Exactly...played on my pc all day yesterday and this morning...all jelly cleared...fishes go to the bottom, but do not clear the jelly there...Do I need to update something?!?!?

Anonymous said...

As far as I knew those things in the bottom weren't considered as "Jelly" for the game. But it looks like in this level, the game want us to clear that also.

Anonymous said...

So..... There are 2 Jelly behind the squares at the bottom, and they get cleared, even before removing the whole thing...

The video helped, but the level is confusing.

Anonymous said...

Don't tell me I'll have to buy a laptop just to get past this level please!!!

Now they changed the level...

pjj said...

What do you mean, they changed the level? I didn't get an update on my ipad. I wrote to King.com about this bug and they are still not calling it a bug even though they say you have to play it on facebook to get to the next level.

CC said...

I have cleared ALL the jelly with 1 tin foil left at the bottom middle , no pass. I have just watched a youtube video and the player had jelly all over the place & still passed!!!! WTF??! GRRRRRRR

Anonymous said...

Now the 3 blocks on the bottom are different. They don't have that much "toppings" on them.

Anonymous said...

Now the level is different, it has now 2 Jelly under all the "Ice" on top, so you actually need to visual clean all the 3 block on the bottom.

Anonymous said...

so u pretty much cant clear this level on a mobile phone. Thats absolutely ridiculous. Ive cleared all previous levels on my mobile until this level and get down to the last 2. Ran out of moves.

pjj said...

But you still need the fish to skim them, correct? And of course, they don't, do they?

Anonymous said...

that doesn't work on an Ipad. I cleared all the jelly making sure I didn't touch the bottom 3 candies with stripes and then used the fish. The fish just ate random candies and didn't go anywhere near the bottom squares.

I've combined fish with stripes, fish with wrappers, fish with powerups (or whatever those clusters are called), twice combined powerups with stripes in one attempt, combined stripes with wrappers and every other combination I can think of.

I think there's a bug that makes this level impossible on the Ipad

Anonymous said...

Can you do this level on a pc without using Facebook? My hubby doesn't have a facebook account and when I go online, we seem to have to start from level 1.

Anonymous said...

this is pathetic. been stuck for weeks now. im playing thru facebook and still no joy. is defo a bug and so many people have complained for weeks and iv still had no update. this is driving me crazy. goin delete the crap game

Anonymous said...

This sucks! Why the fish dont go to the bottom. I clear all the jelly and the fish just eat random candies. Im going back to Angry Birds!

Anonymous said...

I had that problem too. I cleared them to the metalic and still didnt pass. There must be a problem with this stage.

cazzie64 said...

Thank you for your top tip, finally managed to clear this level by using advice. Have spent days trying to clear them completely which was impossible.

Anonymous said...

Please fix the app to be the same as facebook so I can pass 285. I don't have facebook and want to continue badly. the fish are just taking already cleared jelly

Ebel said...

JUST GET ON A PC OR LAPTOP!!! that's the only way to get thru level 285 until King.com changes it. i did and got thru after 2 tries...

Anonymous said...

definitely can't be done on Android unless your the luckiest person on earth but don't go buy a pc or laptop go to your local library and log onto Facebook there its free, if you haven't already you will need to join, usual stuff couple of forms of ID, or internet cafe for an hour.

pjj said...

I'll wait until King changes it or i won't be playing Candy Crush anymore.

Anonymous said...

I have cleared all the jellies. Looked at you tube videos to see what I am doing wrong, i did everything they did to clear including hitting the bottom three two time each and it still says I did not clear. Playing on the android it says I have three remaining jellies to clear.... I don't get it.

Anonymous said...

Okay, I was bound and determined to prove everyone wrong and beat this level with my I-phone. After a week, tonight I had enough and logged on through my laptop. I beat the level ON MY FIRST TRY! Like others have said, on the mobile version, I hit those stupid rocks 3 and 4 times and it still said I only cleared 39 of 42. When I played by PC, I cleared all Jelly and saved the 3 fish for last and BINGO, cleared the level. The fish attacked the rocks instead of the random jelly. Amazingly, when I got back on via iphone, I did not lose my stored lives which I thought was a given.....an added bonus. So, stop analyzing and just log on via PC and beat this level so you can move on like the rest of us :-)

Anonymous said...

I have been stuck on this level for a while as well. Fishes will attack the bottom ones on web version only. But hitting the bottom three twice doesn't seem enough to pass, the jelly behind the bricks are still there. This level seems impossible to pass without buying cheats. DONE with this game. Too frustrated.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the tips of using Facebook on a pc.. Got 39/42 on Android at least 20 times because of retarded fish glitch.

Anonymous said...

King.com App Support emailed me back and confirmed they are aware of the issue and that it should be fixed by the next update...

Anonymous said...

have been on it for days..on pc and laptop....clear all jelly as advised....and still it won't clear....this game is frustrating enough without glitches....lol

Anonymous said...

Thank you so much for this tip!
When playing on Facebook you need to hit the bottom three squares twice after you've cleared the rest of the jelly & blocks.
Finally made it ^^
And on android it is possible when you place a wrapped candy in the square next to the blocks, but then you have to hit them a lot until they are gone :P

Greetings, Samantha

pjj said...

That's amazing because King.com wouldn't even admit they had a problem to me. Hope you are right.

Liz McCar said...

I have Candy Crush on my iPad as an independent app. I do NOT have it linked with my Facebook account.

Is it possible to play the game on a laptop _without_ going through Facebook?

I tried their main website - unsuccessfully.

Does anyone know or have any advice? Thanks in advance for your help! : )

Rocio Jara Droguett said...

It has to be with the fishes at the end, because, although it seems they are eating the top part, they are actually eating the jello beneath it so with to fishes atacking every cupcake, you pass the level :)

Nilesh said...

I'm glad I looked this up. The fishes on the iphone and ipad always attack candy squares even though I clear the jelly on all squares. Was thinking this level was impossible. I have to do it on the PC.
Sort it out King!

Nilesh said...

Okay completed the level. I don't quite know how but I did it on the PC. Thanks alot save the fish until last does the trick.

Anonymous said...

So this morning there was an update for the iOS version in my app store. I did the update thinking I would finally be able to pass the level, since a previous commenter said King stated the glitch would be fixed in the next update, but I don't think it's been fixed. The fish still won't go to the bottom. Anyone else still having this problem after the update?

pjj said...

They fixed the bug and I beat it...finally. Fish have to skim bottom rocks twice. After updating turn off your phone or tablet completely and when you turn it back on the update should work.

Angi Bell said...

Thank God king fixed the bug! I was just about to throw me kindle out the window! 286 here we goooooo!!

Anonymous said...

Nope, it works for me now, finally!. You have to turn off your phone after the update for it to work.

Incredible! This was the only place that knew how to explain what had to be done! fantastic! Excuse my poor English, I'm Brazilian and I speak very little! I'll save your site to my favorites!

I beat this level today due to these tips but, I beat it on my Android so it can be done on the phone. Save the fish til the end and I only used 2 of the fish and the level cleared...yahooo good luck all

Anonymous said...

After looking at the comments I was afraid I'd be stuck here for a long time. But I have passed this level on my mobile phone (Android) after 2 tries. I have cleared all the jelly in the main area without using the fish, and only then I used the 3 fish which went to the 3 bottom squares and did what they were supposed to :)

Anonymous said...

Can this level be done using iPhone?

Anonymous said...

Has just done it on my iPhone!! It is possible. You need to make sure all of the visible jelly is clear, and then use the top two fish for the ones under the bottom
3 blocks.

Yelena Quiles said...

So I thought that this level was impossible on iPhone and so I tried for two days on my phone and then on the laptop via Facebook Candy Crush. Could not get it done on the laptop but I just passed it with the iPhone. You only have to have the fish hit the bottom jellys twice and they will break.

Candy Crush Saga Addicted said...

i love this blog thanks for the tips!

Anonymous said...

I completed this level on the iPad after many attempts using various "strategies." What worked, as so often with the more difficult levels, was to simply focus on making striped/wrapped candy combos and blowing the board clear as often as possible. And, it is like a slot machine in that luck is a factor moreso than skill. Thanks for the tips, everyone!

Anonymous said...

Thank you thank you thank you!!

Been stuck for DAYS on this, always clear jelly but not bottom three.
Second time of trying on my pc and I completed it!

Anonymous said...

Happens to me on android I think if you're playing from your phone you have to clear the entire bottom blocks haven't tried on the pc yet

I have done this over and over again today I don't think it's possible on android when I got to the middle bottom block there was jelly underneath.

I am still struggling. I thought the bottom row did not have to be completely cleared (?). I've had just foil left at the bottom but did not pass the level that way. I usually end up with a regular square with jelly and candy in it at the bottom that I haven't been able to clear out, at least not all 3 of them! Confused about the level now.

Faizal Jalal said...

im using iphone..already finish the top jelly but my fish never go to the bottom rock..how??somebody help me.been 2 weeks struggling..pls ..sklurpin80@yahoo.com

Anonymous said...

♥ Just realized that there are no jellies around the fishes. No need to waste your moves on them. Took me many tries and eventually got it with combos. Didn't even have to mix a striped with fish as long as you clear the jellies before releasing the fishes.

Anonymous said...

At last I managed this level, only after I updated the ipad, once I had updated the fish attacked the 3 lower ones that are causing problems .
Hope this helps, so to conclude, I visited the App Store and there were updates for candy crush, updated and sailed through the level.

Struggling big time with this one. Most boards almost impossible to get wrapped & striped or spotted & striped to help clear it. Hoping and waiting for one of those really lucky ones to happen otherwise think I will spend more time in the garden :)

Anonymous said...

After hundreds of attempts, I actually detest this level now. I managed to get 3 spotted and striped matches in one game & still no good. Almost at the stage where I want to quit this game!! :(

1st life., was left with one!! 2nd life nowhere near it., 3rd life, last fish took out the last two on bottom.
It helped crossing a bomb with stripe midway....cleared most of board...not hard level and no glitches at all!!

I was trying to beat this level for 3 days, and was left with the bottom three jellies, every time. After reading the tips here, I just passed it on my first try. Phew! Yaaaay! lol This board sucked!

Unknown said...

I tried and tried with this level, thinking that when I got to the metallic candy on the bottom, the jelly was gone but nope! Finally read this blog and followed the advice of saving the fish to the end.. and voila! It worked! Cleared the 3 bottom blocks completely to finish this level. THIS is one tip that really worked!

Even when i clear all the jellies my fish still don't go near the stone blocks. I canny see why

I've followed your advice and the fish only stay on the gameboard. I only play on my cell.Why won't your tips work on my board? Really frustrating! Thanks for any help.

Advice at the top of thread just worked perfectly for me. Saved the top fish and bingo level completed after I set them loose, they ate up what was under the blocks at the bottom

Anonymous said...

Didn't work for me. Even if I save the fish, they don't get to the bottom. Sometimes I can't even release them! I'm ready for a couple of easy levels! Getting too hard to be fun lately.

Anonymous said...

c/candycrush here.
Got this in one, playing on a computer.
It did not do the happy dance though till every square was cleared even though the cream squares don't have any jelly under them. I may have fluked it by chance. I cleared what I could but was left with 2 unopened fish and 3 white tin squares down the bottom. I was able to release the fish and they did the work for me. So try to hold onto the fish till last. Good luck.

Anonymous said...

so are the jellies under the 3 rocks?

Anonymous said...

i was lucky as at every attempt i always released one fish before the jellies were cleared! then i got lucky with 2 fish left i had two chocolate bombs together and no move jellies except for the 3 on the bottom and by combining the bombs it released 2 fish and got rid of the last jellies!

CCS S---- said...

There has been mentioned of some have an updated version--the one I have whatever it is, is impossible. I have been at it a wk and a half at least 6-7 hrs a day and can't break the 3 on the bottom. I try to save the fish but somehow the cascades let them loose and they don;t hit the bottom 3. I am pretty good at making stripe & wrap candies but on the level you get very few opportunities and they are never near the bottom 3 blocks. ????? HELP or maybe I need to find another game.

Anonymous said...

This level is really messed up. You have to hit the 3 cream blocks at the bottom 3 times. The fish DO NOT eat the jelly from under the cream. Something needs to be done with this level. It stinks.
