Candy Crush Saga Level 496

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 496 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
You only have 15 moves to clear all the jelly and complete level 496, and all the jelly is in the bottom half of the board with no candies to help.
You need to get candies into the bottom part of the board in as few moves as possible, which means you need to unlock the locked candies in the middle which are stopping the candies from dropping.
There is no need to clear all the blockers, just enough to match some of the locked candies. Once you have candies in the bottom part of the board make your moves there as much as possible, this will create cascades which will help clear more jelly without using up your valuable moves.
You will need some powerful combos with so few moves, but there are only 4 colours on the board so it is fairly easy to make special candies and combos.
Look carefully at the whole board before every move, although you should be working in the bottom half you may see a colourbomb pattern in the top half that you don't want to miss.

I agree with the above comment. I pmoveslay on facebook and only have 15 moves. It seems almost impossible. Could use some hints here,

There are now 4 colours instead of 5. The 45 moved version was 5 colours and 15 move version has 4 colours so it's easier to create special candies. Look on the wiki for more details
