The number of hits required to clear jellies in this level varies simply because some of the jellies are only single coated while some others have double layers. It is apparent that 40 moves will not be enough if you try to clear jellies manually. Obviously, special candies are needed to be successful in this level. Luckily, there are only 5 colors in the level and also, there are two cake bombs just waiting to be cleared so that they could help you clear the elements on stage, including the jellies and locked up candies. For level-specific tips for Candy Crush level 401, read on:
1. Clear the 4-layer meringues:
It is important that you immediately start to chip away on the meringues in this level since they get in the way of you clearing the cake bombs and making them explode. Once the meringues are out, remove the slices of the cake bombs and make them explode, preferably one cake bomb before the other.
2. Make special candies:
There are two striped candies given for free in this level, but you are going to need more than that to be successful here. Try to get a color bomb to pair with one of the free striped candies and use that combination to take care of the tricky jellies for you.
3. Work from the bottom:
It is important to take advantage of cascade matches and accidental combinations so that as you clear jellies on the bottom of the board, the top jellies are taking care of themselves.
4. Spin the daily booster wheel and enjoy your free booster! Man, let’s hope you hit the jackpot!
