In Level 285 of the Candy Crush Saga, you are supposed to get rid of 42 double-jelly squares within 50 moves and earn 65,000 points at the same time. But this level can be very challenging because there is jelly hidden underneath some rather hard-to-reach meringues and you need to be quite lucky in order to clear these pieces of jelly. The fact that they are double jelly squares just makes this level even trickier.
But with the right strategy, Level 285 is not impossible and can be beaten. Here are some tips on how you can beat Level 285 in the Candy Crush Saga.
Leave the jellyfish till last
Try not to use the jellyfish until you have cleared most of the visible jelly that you can see on the board. There may be cases when you might set the jellyfish off prematurely, but if you do, it will make your game a lot harder. This is because the jellyfish is the best way that you can reach the jelly squares at the bottom that is covered by the meringue.
So in that case then, try to strategize your moves so that you do not set off the jellyfish towards the beginning of the game.
Make striped candies
In the event that you are not very lucky with the jellyfish and you end up triggering them before you should, try and make vertical striped candies and position them directly in the line of fire to the jelly squares at the bottom of the board.
But this is not an easy task at all, because you need to fire at the meringue twice, and then twice again at the actual jelly, which means that you need to have the good fortune of getting the striped candies in the right position, a total of four times.
Combine Colour Bomb + Striped Candy
The colour bombs also provide another alternative to beating this level, but this is only providing that you are able to combine these with a striped candy. This is because a single blast of a colour bomb clears a huge chunk of the game board. So if you are lucky enough, it will clear the meringue layers together with it too.
However do also note that the colour bombs are quite useless by themselves because they do not clear meringue.
Combine Wrapped Candy + Striped Candy
The wrapped and striped candy combination also provides another possible alternative to clearing the hard-to-reach meringue layers, because it clears three vertical columns of your game board in a single move. So this increases the likelihood that you’ll get rid of a layer of meringue from one of the hard-to-reach squares, if you play this card in Level 285 of the Candy Crush Saga game.
