  • The hardest part of this level is that there are only 10 moves. So to get the best chance of beating it, you should reset your board, which you can do without losing any lives. All you need to do to get a new board is to exit the level before you have made any moves and then reopen it. You should be looking for an easy way to make a color bomb or multiple vertical striped candies or a striped + wrapped candy.

  • Sandy

    you get 5 moves,as the timer bomb is a 5
    you can not re-set without losing lives if you are on a normal computer

      I don’t envy you, Sandy. I can re-set (Kindle) and it only took me three games, but about a million resets. They should fix that so that it’s even for everyone.

  • Geertje

    Yes indeed Sandy – you really only have 5 moves AND need to take care of the bombs in the upper level too. I agree that this one needs an update!

    Can’t reset it on android without losing a life, either

  • Warners Sporthorses

    this level is a pain in the butt

    I passed on second go.
    Worked out that if I got a horizontal striped candy in the same column as the bomb and could play it, it got rid of the bomb.
    The jelly the bomb is in is the only one you need to clear.

    If I didn’t have a good play in the beginning I kept hitting the gold arrow in bottom left corner, then click on red exit door, then try again. Was able to get 5 in a row to get, I call the donut hole. Use donut to clear the bomb in the jelly below. Then try to get 2 striped candies side by side just above the jelly.

    It is one of those levels that is designed to get you to purchase power ups.
