I wrote a previous blog post with some tips on how to solve Level 147, but readers have wanted more. So I have come up with a new post, featuring strategies on how to specifically beat Level 147.
Why is Level 147 So Hard?
Before you can go about beating this level, you must first understand the dynamics of Level 147.
Level 147 can be incredibly tricky, because it looks quite easy at first glance – until you start playing it. It is a jelly level, which requires you to get rid of 52 pieces of double jelly layers within a total of 50 moves.
The main reason that contributes to the sheer difficulty of this level is the bombs that keep coming down from the top of your game board – to completely mess up your game. You must clear these bombs within 15 moves, and this is a tough task because there are six different colours to play with. If you fail to do so, the bombs will explode – and you will fail the level.
Moreover, this level is made even worse by the fact that many of the double layers of jelly are concealed between triple layers of meringue cupcakes. So you practically need five hits in order to break a single square of these. Doing so in a mere 50 moves can be tough.
So then, how do you beat Level 147? Do read on.
Focus on creating special candies
The only way that you will have a chance to beat this level is to focus your efforts on creating special candies. One striped or wrapped candy will be able to clear a significant chunk of the jelly, when played at the right place. If you are able to combine two or more special candies, that is an even greater bonus.
This does not come easy with six different colours of candy on the board, but if you are able to see a match, quickly grab the opportunity before it goes away.
The best move you can make is to match a speckled colour bomb together with a striped candy, for the most amount of destruction. But again, you must be lucky enough to get this combination, or you can always part with a little cash and buy them in the form of boosters before you begin the level.
Colour bombs are also good if you have several jellies containing a specific colour candy. By matching the colour bomb with this colour of candy, you will be able to clear all of these jelly squares at one go.
Focus on the bottom of the screen
To maximise your chances of getting cascading candies and thus clearing more of the board in a single move, try and focus your efforts on the bottom section of the screen.
By doing this, you will be able to make several matches with a single move – thus making the most of the 50 moves that you have been given in this round.
At the same time, you will also be able to get rid of those pesky meringue cupcakes at the bottom of your game board.
Watch the Bombs
Make sure that you keep a close eye on the bombs that keep coming down from the top of your game board. You may be on track to clearing a specific level, but may be undone by a bomb. In fact, this is what may happen to many players. The bombs have an annoying habit of getting back at you when you think that you are on a roll.
So take note of exactly where the bombs are, and if you see a match that will clear a bomb or two off the game board, you should seize this with open arms as this may be your only chance to get rid of them – even though there may be a better move elsewhere on the board.
