Are a nightmare. I am usually able to pass an episode in a day, sometimes two. With this one after 3 days i am only half way, despite the use of boosters and probably 20 hammers. Sometimes i needed 3 or 4 hammers per level to finally pass. All the boards are very closed at the start, usually only allowing one move, and it makes the boosters (friendly charge, coloring candy) mostly useless. I have been playing this game for a while and I don't mind levels that are challenging as long as they are fun to play. This batch however is simply very frustrating and seems to rely almost exclusively on luck. The video walkthroughs are also still not availble, even though I doubt they would be much help. I hope that future episodes will be more reasonable.
