First of all, welcome to a whole new level in the Saga, the Holiday Hut episode! Level 261 is the first level for this new episode, so it is generally easy. Well, it looks pretty generic, right? There are 27 locked up candies on the three center columns, and each of them hides double coated jellies that you are supposed to clear. That is pretty easy to do with as much as 50 moves. The challenge of this level will manifest itself once you’ve released a number of locked up candies. See those three candy cannons on top of the board? Well, those spawn 8-move bombs sporadically. You’d have to clear these immediately, obviously, and that would cause you to waste a lot of significant moves. This level truly is challenging, but you can clear it for sure if you remember the following tips and strategies:
1. Release locked up candies on the bottom of the board first:
The goal is to clear a lot of jellies first before you have to deal with candy bombs. This could be achieved by keeping the upper candies locked up while you are clearing jellies on the bottom part of the board. Be careful with the combinations you make!
2. Detonate time bombs immediately when they spawn:
No matter how long you manage to stall, there will come a time when you need to release even the top locked up candies. When this happens, candy bombs will fall. Just make sure you detonate the bombs as soon as you can. If you can clear them with only one move after they spawn, that’d be good.
3. Use special candies:
Special candies and combos help a great deal in clearing candy jail, jellies, and even bombs. A pair of wrapped candies would be good, and a color bomb + striped candy combination would also be great.
