Finished the three episodes. Definitely the best release of levels in an absolute age in this game. Great stuff.
Second episode probably had the hardest levels of the week, a few in there you will likely need a few goes at if you don't have the full necklace. 10450 i already mentioned, 10456 also. With 10456 there is the opportunity to employ some tactics, so an interesting hard level all the same. 10460 requires a bit of luck too.
The third episode also had a few potentially hard levels- 10469 had some awkward to reach jelly, 10470 has a lot of blockers and 10472 has a familiar foe- collecting enough toffee swirls from stingy dispensers.
The candy cobra levels are great fun, and the way it fills in missing parts of the boards is interesting in particular. And it is nice to see a fresh feature in the game- i think this one provides a lot of scope for interesting levels. My one minor concern would be what happened with the jelly jars- the fact they cleared blockers in the surrounding area meant we quickly got an endless stream of levels filled with jelly jars and over-the-top amounts of blockers... i hope something similar doesn't happen here. The fact the cobra clears an entire row of blockers no matter how many are there means the same issue shouldn't arise.
@Michael-6 The third episode DOES have a level with only candy cobras and nothing else, and that gives me hope they're not gonna overdo the blockers.
@LindQ something to consider! I went back and tried a few of the earlier levels to see how they played without boosters, and there is an issue with 10432. It is a similar issue to the fish+booster sour skull problem. A fish+wrapper landed on a jelly jar and cleared it. However, it didn't count towards to total of cleared jelly jars, meaning you are left with the situation below- one jelly jar required to unlock the last square, but none left on the board to do so.
oh yikes 😅 Will look into that
10472 Anyone else having issues?
Tons of boards, very typical ending
@Michael-6, just curious. Is it out of choice that you do not use boosters?
Oh i do, but my collection is always very low! So i'm usually out of them by the time i get towards the end of the second episode each week! Plus you get so little out of the treat machine too, although the occasional party booster or UFO from it is always very helpful.
Took me a few goes that one, and the one i passed the board effectively cleared 10 by itself on the final move. I wasn't expecting to pass so was pleased to turn back to the sceeen and see the super sugar crush message appear!
Glad to see the gang here. Going slow this week only played the 1st 6 levels. Also:
Took quite a bit more than a few goes for me!
There you go @Albert_Heinrich - my booster inventory is very similar to @Boybinary 's- rather bare!
Always running on empty looking for the next gas station!
In light of recent developments it is now:
@LindQ I think you should give 10444 5 more moves. 30 definitely isn't enough to collect all of the orders, even with boosters it's still bad because of the restricted board. It ends up rendering color bombs almost useless unless you have 2 to start.
@LindQ I'm convinced 10444 is not doable without boosters or the streak.
It isn't really a bad level in concept but there definitely isn't enough moves, or the order targets are too high.
Hey! Would you like to give us your opinion?
