Candy Crush Saga Level 1236

Hints and tips for level 1236 Candy Crush Saga
You need to clear all the jelly before you release the fish, so that the fish will go to the two top squares which have no candies in them.
If you release the fish too early it may go to other jellies and leave the top ones alone, which will make them almost impossible to clear.
Without the fish the only way to hit those top squares is with a stripe/wrap combo along the side.

Jelly covered by many layers.

I guess I got a lucky board because I did not clear the jelly but had a stripe hit the fish and the fish went after the top two jellies. I didn't even notice there were two jellies up there.

I think it is important to mention that there is no jelly underneath the blocked squares - just clear the top jelly / hit the fish twice (save the second hit for near the end, if at all possible) and if you have a hammer smash the top squares. Even if you activate the fish early - one of them will usually take out one top jelly - save a hammer for the other! Not near as hard as it seems…..

Appreciate this site as I hadn't noticed the two top jelly squares either on my first attempt without checking here and I mistakenly thought we had to clear the whole board. I used two lollipop hammers as I didn't make it down to the fish before moves ran out. I only got one star but was glad to get it over with....UNTIL I noticed the next one (1237) is the dreaded timed level. Yikes!

The Blue Candy challenge this weekend was great. I'm still puzzled by the fact that I'm
able to get it on only one of my identical Android tablets though?

So if I update so I can get the new levels will I lose all my boosters?

This is one of the more absolutely ridiculous levels and it should be scrapped. It involves virtually no skill as combos are limited and obvious, so the game is completely out of one's control. I cleared about 50% of the board, got the fish to smash the two jellies at the top, and when I ran out of moves, it said "Oh no! You only have one jelly left!" Would someone please enlighten me? WHERE is that one jelly supposed to be?

Thanks for the tip! I thought whole board had to be cleared also. Two lollipops and done! Yucky level

I need more hammers! ;) Finding this one difficult.

Why oh why didn't I read this first before wasting 5 lives fruitlessly? I didn't realise either that it was just the top part to be cleared. I added a fish booster and then managed to hit the second fish so it was done. I dread the next level - I am hopeless at timed levels. Oh dear!

Oh didn't realize you only need to get the top thanks, love this page

So the secret is not to worry about the bottom part of the board. I used 2x my (free) boosters: colour bomb; stripe/wrap and fish and also used my one and only hammer to break one of the top jellies. That got me through. Grace from DU

Quite enjoyable. Had a chocolate bomb to free the fish not many moves available.

For some reason I'm finding this level so difficult. Have used up all my switch hands and hammers. So sad :(

The tips say you need to clear all the blockers before releasing the fish to make sure the fish goes to the top jellies. My question is, how do you clear all those blockers in 20 moves???

Simple Level if you have the paintbrush charm. Just clear the top section of the jellies and hit the fish once with a vertical stripe. When you are done to at most 3 jellies left (including the top corners) then use the paintbrush to create the second vertical stripe to hit the fish again and voila - done!

I seemed to be playing this level for days, but probably less. I tried the odd booster but nothing. On the next one I got a sparkle then another dropped one candy away from the first one. So I used a handswitch to put them together, that cleared the top jellies but I still had one to move before game completed.
It might be worth using all three boosters to see how you get on. At least you know you've tried that route if nothing else. Otherwise just wait for that lucky break. Two sparkles is the key but it's just getting them. And make sure you have plenty of hand switch boosters too.

Good luck everyone

Still a challenging level but actually fun! Appreciate everyone's comments. They really help if you read them before you start but why do people call boosters other names than what they are? Like color bombs are sprinkles or chocolate & coconut wheels are donuts etc.?

So I had a blue fish and then I got a chocolate sprinkle and matched it with a blue candy and that unwrapped the fish. Much to my surprise I only had 3 jellies left, I was surprised because most of the 3 hit blockers were still left. Then a vertical stripe appeared right above the fish and I was done... easy peasy lemon squeezy.
