Candy Crush Saga Level 342 Hints and tips.

Some people are very confused about where the jelly is on this level.
There is a single jelly under EVERY cream square.
The fish will remove the jelly from UNDER the cream so if a cream square has been hit by a fish there will be NO jelly under that cream square. 
If a fish does not hit a square you have to clear it totally of cream and jelly.

By Michie Chee
I have replayed this level the 2nd time to discover how the hell I pass this level without clearing all the blocks on the 1st row during my 1st win.. And here's my finding :)


Fact - There are 14 cakes with a single jelly hidden in it. Means total of 14 jellies to clear.

How? - By using the fish, 1 fish will take out 1 jelly (even though is covered by cake). Hence 14 jellies require 5 fishes (as 1 fish produce 3 fishes)

Suggestion - First you need to clear the 3 jellies on the top and also try to clear other visible jellies and try to keep 5 fishes till most jellies are cleared. After that use fish. You complete the level when you touch every block at least once with the fish. 

Challenge? Yea, it's hard to keep the so much fishes till the end. So i break open 1 or 2 cakes at the top layer and clear the jelly myself. (Best using Wrapped to clear the inside jelly as is hard to reach with normal match) You have to notice which cake that the fish did not hit, and there will be the hidden jelly inside it on the top row of the cakes. So use a paper and take note if u can't remember which cake had been hit by the fish :D

Here you will find how the jelly fish work.

I kept reading the same thing, watching the viedos on yourtube and doing it over and over clearing first row on up. I finally got it by luch with a wrapped candy in the middle of first row. When in blew it took the two corners down to silver and that did it.

Sorry but these hints are of no help. I can't get the fish to clear the bottom levels and there is no other way to clear them. I have tried this over 100 times already and I'm ready to quit the game!

Try to get a spotted candy and switch it with a fish- it'll give you extra fish. That's how I ended up passing this level =)

Tricky, yes. But IMO it's easier than trying to avoid all the fish...

^YES, thank you! Spotted candy and fish, that saved me! and yes, you dont need to clear all the blocks :)))

Thanks for the tip! I was also saved by a spotted candy next to my last fish :):)

Ok..Cleared it a few weeks ago and 409 has a King.com problem so I've been replaying 342....You can do it! You must clear all visible jellies and leave 2 fish for the last 1-5 moves....they of course have to be released and they will clear all the jelly...just passed it 3 times in last couple hours...remember only the fish at the end will get you through....just basic get rid visable jelly and release 2 fish near the end...it works..promise....

I am having a hard time clearing all upper jellies and still saving fish for end. Any more help?

Thanks so much.

This is an extremely difficult level to complete and a lot of luck is required to do it in 25 moves. After leaving 1 hidden jelly so many times I finally got the luck with a candy bomb and fish match on the last move.

Yes!!! Thanks for the tip, it finally worked for me too when I cleared the top and saved 5 fish till the end! :) Also good if you can use a fish with a stripe.

Wow, would have never gotten it without reading this. Cleared all jelly a couple of times and didnt understand why i didnt win. Saved fish until last and cleared in one life after reading this. Thank you for this help!

Like previous player said...USE BOMB CANDY with a fish. WAY EASIER than saving fish. I managed to finish the level on 3rd turn using this method! Good Luck Candy Crushers!

After reading the above tip once I passed the level on the first attempt. Clear all visable jelly without fish first, then expose and clear the fish jelly with a stripe and wrapped candy combo that should clear all hidden jelly under the cakes. Good luck

You can see a (very) feint outline of the jelly under a cake so if you don't know how close you are it can be worked out.

PHILBO said...

THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL THE TIPS. FINALLY DID IT USING COLOUR BOMB AND FISH AND WRAPPED CANDY WITH FISH

Ive just gave up candy because of this level.. I bought the hammers twice to find the hidden jelly and still didn't find it.
They keep changing where the jellys are also.wasnt on the top level on this left this time.
What really annoys me most of all about this game. Some levels are ridicously easy prior to an hard level.
They are just taking the piss. I know I don't have to play the game.
But they shouldn't do levels that requires you to pay.

Don't give up, people. I'd tried this level maybe 20 times, each time ending with 2 -3 unseen jelly left, hidden. Just kept trying to clear blocks from the top. Could not avoid the fish, so just used them as they arrived. I know I just had the two bottom rows left, no idea where the remaining jelly was, or how many. Wasn't watching how many moves I had left... when all of a sudden.. WHAM! Game over, I won, and not a clue I was even close. Although I don't like not having information about how many jelly left to find, it's rather exciting to just be DONE with this level, with no warning. I'm pretty convinced that after you play a certain number of times, the algorithms just lighten up and your chances improve. Don't give up.

Spot on about color ball mixing with fish. That cleared the level for me after about 20 tries. TY.

Just join two disco jellies and see the magic.

Rosemarie said...

Can someone tell me about where the jellies are. I have cleared them all and still have not won this level. Please, please someone tell me what is going one

The level is fucked, plain and simple. It's completely bugged all to hell.

Cleared the bored several times over, all jelly destroyed and it wouldn't pass me.

I just had a match where I used a fish at the end and the 3 fishes attacked candies on the top part of the board.. and I passed it.

Yes that's right, the fish didn't not attack jellies and I finished the level...

Stupid stupid game.

Remove as many jellies as you can with plain matches - especially the top. ***Combine a fish with a Color Bomb.*** That will give you 9 fishes instead of 3. With luck they chain-react as they hit the remaining fish.

I guess I got incredibly lucky because after reading your tips I was able to beat it in my first try by saving all my fish!

c/candycrush here.

This is an absolute cow of a level. I thought I would be at it till doomsday. Very depressing because I had no idea most times how many jellies were left. But I have just got through it.
Best tip I got at this site: There is jelly under every cake but if a fish hits it, that jelly is eliminated from under it, even though the cake layers remain.

Tips that didn't work for me: *Saving fish till last, when other visible jellies have been dealt with. Good luck with that one, I tried as far as possible in a lot of games but it's hard.
* Only detonating a fish I you have a stripe or special candy next to it. Great idea but not always possible.
* Using one of the extra fish I won in the daily spin. It got me closer (one jelly left, apparently, but I didn't know which one!)

So how did I get through? One of my first moves generated a colour bomb up the top. I wanted to save it to put with a fish but couldn't see any moves to get it down there so in the end I just detonated it with a candy next to it, which set almost all the fish flying. I thought, that's wrecked it, but there were 2 fish left. I cleared what I could of visible jellies then detonated one fish with an ordinary move (no special candy) and that did it.
So.. a little bit of luck needed on this, for the fish to hit the bottom cakes. But it can be done without special combinations with the fish or eliminating all the other jelly first. If you can keep even one fish till close to the end..... you're in with a chance.

I matched a fish with a sprinkle ball (that's what I call it). That completed the level for me even though it didn't look finished...

Michelle said...

Ridiculous level! You can actually see the jellies under the creams if you strain your eyes. Once you hit one with a fish you'll see the faint outer line is no longer there. The problem with this level is the five bottom jellies. They can only be reached by fish so if you don't have enough fish remaining you won't win. I decided to use my free fish and won first time then. Glad to be rid of this ridiculous level.

Michelle said...

You know you're addicted when you come back for more! I wanted to get it without the freebies so I tried again, and succeeded. I was very strategic about the fish. I didn't have any sprinkled, and I avoided detonating stripes unless there were no fish in that column, until my very last go. I had only one jelly left in the bottom row (you definitely can see it if you look very closely) and 4 turns left, but my fish + striped got it. Lucky that was, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to use that fish.

Finally!!! took less than 10 moves this time. I added extra fish and managed to save them while clearing the top jellies, then triggered one fish and they all went at once and cleared the level - thankfully!
