Fun level!! It took a few tries, but it was so nice to not have to deal with bombs, chocolate, or licorice!! Easy to find combos, and nice to have a chance to work a little strategy!

This is the hardest level in a while. Not getting much joy and the constant reshuffles at the start don't help.

I have been stuck on this level for a week. While thankfully there is no chocolate or other annoyances, I'm finding it's another luck level. I've gotten down to a few left only once, most times stuck with a good row or corner left. Guess I'll keep trying until I get a ton of combos . . . but sucks when the shuffle takes away the moves.

This was a challenging level in a good way! Once you get through some re-shuffles at the beginning, things begin to open up. Took me many trys, but, made it through. Good luck!

Fun level, took a few tries but was able to position stripes or stripe/wrapper combos to take out the sides and bottoms.

Well, I got this down to two with get this, THREE color bomb/stripe combos and still didn't get passed it! I guess I'll try to get those wrapped/stripes on the sides.

I'm playing through Facebook as this level on the mobile version isn't available yet. Unfortunately, it's full of bugs. In the past two games that I started, I am unable to even make a first move as there are none available, nor does the game recognize it and shuffle the board. The flashing "suggested" play shows two uncovered candies, but the third candy is a wrapped candy from the top row that is inaccessible as it's still glazed over. I'll be damned if I use a lollipop just to access it and start the game. Getting BIG combos in this level is hit or miss...or luck, as they so often say here, and it's going to take quite a few of them to clear it. But they're right, at least you don't have to deal with the bombs or chocolate!

Same problem as noted above, OR...after each play it finds "no moves" and "shuffles" you right out of the game in just a handful of plays!

Finally they unlocked more levels on mobile! I had been playing this level on the PC with not much success. On my phone, I've gotten down to one jelly! Completely forgot about the two lollipop hammers I had from the wheel! As with every other level, they seem to be easier on a mobile device. Matching two of the wrapped candies, clears a lot of jelly, as does a sprinkle/stripe combo.

Completed with the aid of fish from the bonus wheel. Enjoyable.

For the times when you have no move at the beginning (or whenever) and the one that flashes has a candy or two covered....just move some of the other candies that mean nothing, even if they don't match. It will force a reshuffle. I seem to be the only one that has figured this out because I read alot of people complaining about it. This level is hard - I haven't even come close. I don't get alot of combos that help. Keep trying.

My iPad ends the game at level 485. Why am I able to continue playing the next levels on my iPhone but not on iPad?

Untold reshuffles again. Not a brain drain level but will certainly need a lucky board as so many of them do now. Boredom may set in before that.

It is a fun level but I'm mad at myself. My first time playing it I only had 2 to pop and I had 2 lollipop hammers. I decided NOT to use them. A hundred games later I could kick myself!!!!!

OMG this level is nearly impossible. Two really good colour bomb / strip candy mass explosions and I still had 7 jelly's to clear by the end of the game...

Didn't find it that easy - took 3 days and then used a free hammer on the last jelly. Obviously need to make lots of combos but didn't get many sprinkle/stripe opportunities. AS

Got this level on the 21st try, though I got close on a couple of occasions. I noticed that the problem was often clearing the bottom row of blocking cream and then jelly. Getting a horizontal-blasting stripe into the bottom row helped, but also helping is getting those wraps that are present at the top of the board at the start into the bottom section before swapping them together. When I made this level, I got wrapped candies adjacent to each other in both lower sections, and swapped them (on separate moves). That cleared out a lot of the cream and jelly, and then later on, it took just two sparkly/striped combos and a good late cascades to clear the last of the jelly. For once, there were three-candy melds that cleared the last few pieces, though the last one was a sparkly against a candy of the right colour. This was a fun level, and hard, especially in tries with lots of shuffles, but if the wrapped candies are used right, the level can be won without boosters.

Not easy at all. Been trying for over a week now and can't get it!!!!!

Finally cleared this level after 3 grueling days. lol What I found most effective is the two wrapped candies combo and the color bomb + wrapped candy combo. A color bomb and a striped candy didn't really do much to help. By eliminating colors with the color bomb + wrapped candy, you get two color eliminations out of one combo. Good luck!

Not an easy level, took me days.

Quite enjoyable though in one way, as there are no bombs or chocolate.

You will need quite a few special candy or combos though. They aren't that hard to make but they aren't always in the spots where you need them.
I didn't shine, I got through on one star and a low score, but had had much higher scores where I just didn't clear all the jelly. That's life.

Good luck.

After 5 games realised that sprinkles are far and few between and that there are simply not enough moves available to get it all out. Followed Bill's advice and used my daily spin free fish. Worked like a dream.

Not a fan of this level. Very boring. Not even close enough to buy my way out of it!

Raylo said...

Finally got it with extra moves.

Level 488 is the pitts. Hate it, been here way too long. Very boring when you see you don't have a chance.

I don't know how much longer I can take the misery of this level! After a week of playing over 100 games, I've been close a few times, just enough to add to the frustration! I usually can after first 20 moves if I even have a chance. Try to get combos ans set them off near the sides and bottom. No strategy working!

This really is a fun level but it gives false hopes. Many promising starts but run out of turns before I can really get to that bottom row. Have had very few opportunities to make the much needed stripes, wraps, etc. This old lady is getting very discouraged after many, many failed attempts. Have not had any "lucky board" set up!
