Candy Crush Saga Tips for Level 285








More tips below by Joel.

You should try and clear all the jelly on the reachable areas before using the fish. It's luck at the begining to do this, and you won't have much moves to do so if you idle too much or take out the fish too fast.


                                          If you use the fish too early in the game, it will hit the reachable jelly, making the unreachable jelly at the bottom to get, unless you form a combination of vertical stripes. Don't forget the bottom areas only need to be hit twice, not completely break (the bottom must look like foil, or choc foil).

This level is making me crazy. I've cleared all the jelly, then used the fish, and the fish just eliminate regular candies on the board. I don't understand. I've literally had every single jelly cleared and the fish still won't go down to the other three. HELP.

I have exactly the same problem. The fish are useless. Have cleared all the board many times, and even got the rocks down to reveal the candy in the jelly underneath, but STILL the fish ignore it and take out regular candies. There is definitely a bug on this level. Unless of course you pay for a hammer.....

You can not pass this board on the ipad or android app, there is some kind of glitch where the fish will not go down to the bottom. You must play on computer through facebook!

You can do this now on android since the new update (beg of May)
The fish go straight to the bottom 3 now once all the jelly on the rest of the board is cleared. I'm on 290 now which is another nightmare!!

They've changed it. I start with three creams on the bottom and now you MUST clear the bottom three jellies.

Level 290 is a nightmare level...I thought level 275 was even worse...
290 requires a lot of patience and persistence..

I was very disheartened to read that you can't pass this level on your iPad. Well good news, yes you can, I just completed it. What a lot of crap about leaving the fish till last. I accidentally used them and still got through. Happy candy crushing folks.

This is insane......If you release the fish from the marmalade too soon they get set off before you have the majority of the jelly removed and if you wait to release the fish till later I don't have enough moves to break through the barriers of cream to get to them. I cannot get all of the jelly removed so the fish go to the 3 boxes at the bottom.....gggrrrrrr I hate this level.
