Forsaken by the gods of tooth decay?
I'm currently in the middle of what by now constitutes a quantifiably absurdist effort at one level 5815
Now this isn't a circumstance of my not understanding what needs to happen in order to complete the level; that's plain enough. Nor is it the case that I'm mistaken about the order things NEED to happen (e.g. keys necessary to open up otherwise unaccessible areas of the board). And while I obviously cannot claim to recognize and capitalize on EVERY opportunity (there are a LOT of options happening simultaneously all over the field of play, after all) I can assert that I've demonstrated myself to be pretty savvy in terms of both strategy and execution.
But regardless of strategies or best laid plans, in SOME levels the drops just HAVE to give you the assist. And here is where I'm experiencing the conundrum that instigated this unnecessarily verbose little missive:
Now I acknowledge that what I'm about to state sounds ridiculous. Yes. Granted. But it's exactly. As though the candies that fall to fill the vacated spaces heretofore occupied by my now fallen confectionery commandos... are being deliberately selected to block my progress-- oh! No more legal switches, and 💢 there goes the hard-fought but ultimately insufficient progress I'd been making aligning the necessary colors to steal victory at last from that remaining and ever-elusive key. And by now I've failed so many consecutive attempts that the 'hint' feature has become downright insolent.
I don't want to be misconstrued and for this little diatribe be interpreted as me having a tantrum... I use colorful verbiage in an effort to convey just how patently bizarre this little mugging has seemed to your humble poster.
Also, I can categorically attest to the fact that there have been many situations in many of the levels now notched in my belt where I have experienced what for all intents and purposes 'seemed' to be exactly the opposite; and that the drops were being hand-picked specifically to shepherd my bungling self through to the next level.
So what am I experiencing here? Have I booster-ed my way into waters entirely too deep for me to tread?
I make these posts mainly for my own benefit, and the number of responses I've gotten suggests a quality of rhetoric to my questions, but I assume other crushers that have come as far or further along in this game have had similar experiences, so on the off chance that anyone does for whatever reason read this little post, I'd like to hear about them.....
