I wanted to stop by with some tips for some of the levels here.

For level 91, I found the most effective strategy would be to target the middle section where the sticky notes are with Line boosts - even better if you can combine those Line boosts with Lightning Bolt boosts. This will help with clear entire layers of stickies at a time. Once all the stickies are cleared, it does help to clear multiple tiles at a time by continuing to combine Line and Bomb boosts with more Lightning Bolt boosts whenever possible.

Level 29 was an admittedly difficult level, and the walls in the middle of the board make it difficult to clear all of the sand completely. To clear the sand so you can see the tiles that need to be cleared, create Lightning Bolt boosts and combine them with Bomb boosts. This is a little more effective than combining the Lightning Bolt boosts with Line boosts when taking those walls in to consideration.

As for getting enough gummies to build St. Louis Cathedral, you can get 1,000,000 pink gummies by completing side level 16-2.

I hope this helps,

bfgWaimea



I am surprised by the answer on the level 29 because there is no sand !!!
I tried to pass the last level "master builder" dozens of times without success. There is never enough shot to get rid of stickers that regenerates continuously. It is even more frustrating that this level is part of the challenge of the day 2 times this month

HH LEVEL 2-FISH,
Just wanted to put in my 2 cents on how I figured this one out.
When the game starts, if you look at both sides (starting at the top), you will see that you can switch out the fish by starting on the top on one side, then move to the other side, Keep doing this at each line. Don't skip.
You will end up with 1 fish that doesn't come out this way, but there's plenty of moves to get that last 1 down. And, no boosts used.

I would like to say, as others have, that NO is very "brutal". I did have some money built up, but, it's gone.

Now, I need help with the HH Seeds.
Can't figure this one out. Even used Z's, line boosts & shovels. Finally gave up & waited 2 weeks to get the gummies in via ship.
But, I still would like to get this one done.

Thanks to all you master players who help those of us who thought this game was supposed to be fun, not trying to get a PHD here.
Thanks, Bonnie

Is there a trick to 22-3 or do I just have to use boosts?

According to my notes I was able to pass without boosts after a couple of tries, so it's doable. But I haven't noted any particular tips, so it should be pretty straightforward.

Eli: I just wanted to say that I am so impressed every time you refer to notes you keep on each level. I just beat the level and move on. Your notes are such a help for newer players.

Eli,
I also keep "cheat sheets". As I play I write down all pertinent info. & what it takes to beat it. I know 23-3 has the wood tiles, & "not easy" in my notes. But, I got it finally without any boosts. I think it was getting Z's that got me through.
I would be lost if I didn't have my notes for each city.

I can't get through 29 at master yet, but I will.

I noticed that each time you play the same game, same level, it's like being dealt a hand of cards. Sometimes you get a Royal Flush, & other times, well, you get crap.

Trying to keep the Gummy God's happy. LOL

Thanks to all for your help. Even with my notes, I couldn't do it without swooping in once in a while to get tips from you all.

O.K., got lucky on 32-2 with 1 Z , & yes you will want the brick's & hat's you get for getting through this one.

Any tricks or idea's on 37? Has 4 souvenirs at top & Zombies. Can't get the Z's to get rid of the Zombies cause I'm using all my moves getting rid of the Zombies, & sure don't want to buy. N'Awlin's is wearing me down.
Thanks

I cannot figure this one out! Help! The sand moves too fast and I can't get the 300,000 points!

Good grief! How in the world do you get through 62-2?

Level 16 was fine for me (all 3 levels) and was honestly one of the easiest in this dreadful city.

Please let me know if there are any tips for 62-2. Thanks!

I played it 15 times before swallowing my pride and shoveling the stickies I couldn't clear in the middle. Do this in the beginning (2 or 3 in the very center), and you won't have to use additional turns at the end.


Thanks - that worked! (finally!).

 

Help with Level 100

I can't seem to get passed this level. The one time I got the three bomb gems there was no way I was ever going to reach the needed points. Also how do I unlock the lightning bolts? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Help with Level 100

I too am stuck here and very frustrated. Does Eli173 or Stinky2sex have any tips from their notes? It would be very much appreciated.

I seem to have just lucked out. What happens so often after you post problems with a level and then you go back and it just happens, I got lucky with down arrows to unlock a couple of bolts then extremely lucky as an arrow ended right beside the unlocked bolt that unlocked a few of the other ones and I still had to use one shovel on the light blue bomb when it was down to its last turn but I've cleared it finally.

Hi all,
I found that getting 2 Z's together (asap), but not absolutely necessary, will help rid those horrific Goblins faster. I just finished the Master's level for the daily deal, & was surprised that I didn't have to shovel my way out. I just kept using the Z's that I would make to keep clearing the board.
My best strategy for all games is the layout. If I can't put 4 or 5 gummies together when I first look, I just keep backing out until I see a layout that will give me the most chance's of 4 or 5 combo's. Of course, if you've already chosen boosts, you can't back out, or you lose your boosts.

Now, I have not been able to figure out 115-2: 2 souvenirs chained above 2 colored bombs that are chained. It has a small layout, but, I have made as many as 6 Z'S in a game, & not getting anywhere. I even tried using 1 shovel on 1 of the colored bombs, but that didn't unlock the chained souvenir. So, I'm sitting here wondering what I'm missing? Only once have I been able to get enough of the red & green to fill the colored bombs, but had no more moves left to get souvenirs down & out. LOL.

For all who are in the early stages of the game, I'm going to post what you'll need for all the buildings except last one, as I haven't gotten there yet.
I can honestly say; I have spent the summer in N'AWLINS!
Thanks All for the help. Wish I could get in more often.
Bonnie

You are not missing anything. This happens because the shovels now don't explode the color blockers like they used to, but only delete them, so the souvenirs remain locked. See this thread:

http://forums.bigfishgames.com/posts/list/836643.page

Now for 115-2, the only way to get around this problem is to use 1 or 2 waterfalls (I just played Architect and didn't have enough of either green or red), which will free both the souvenir and the color blocker, and then take the color blocker out of the souvenir's way as you guide it to the exit. This means that you should do this early, so that you have enough moves left. If you want to or are desperate, you can first delete the color blocker with a shovel and then use the waterfall, but this makes the solution even more expensive.

If you want you can add your voice in the other thread I mentioned. This is a big problem and should be corrected asap.

Eli,
Wow, I just realized that was what I was missing. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.
I started reading through the forum & read about that, but, until I saw your post it hadn't sunk in. Duhhhh
I need to address this. I was ready to put this one on my impossible list. I hate using money for boosts that aren't going to do the job.
I've pretty much gotten into the mindset as I play each game, that I have no boosts or money, so I can push myself to study the layout I have to work with.
But, this one was frustrating me.
THANX so much Eli. I rely on your help.

Will go to other site to put in my 2 cents worth on this one!
Happy Gumming
Bonnie

I got through it by matching reds and yellows, ignoring other matches, until the color blockers burst. Then got the seeds to drop. Boosts weren't required.

It looks like I will never succeed in conquering Level 1 Master Builder. I am shipping gummies to New Orleans right now. I just tried out the speed-up feature on a resource port. It ships those gummies instantly for 10 coins, and I plan to do it more often to get through this tricky city.
