Level 147 is the seventh level in Gingerbread Glade and the 68th jelly level. To pass this level, you must crush 52 double jelly squares and score at least 125,000 points in 50 moves or fewer. When you complete the level, Sugar Crush is activated and will score you additional points.
This level used to be one of the most notorious levels in the game and was considered one of the hardest until the web version went through a massive nerf in the end of 2013. The level was reverted in January 2014, but was nerfed again the following month, this time on all versions. However, on May 2015, it was buffed but reverted to the nerfed version for mobile.
- The three-layered icing squares at the sides of the board are especially difficult to clear.
- 12-move bombs drop once every 5 moves.
- The fact that the candies do not fill the entire board at the start of the game should give you a minor boost in clearing the jellies if you are lucky.
- The jellies are worth 104,000 points. Hence, an additional 21,000 points is required to earn one star.
- Make as many special candies as you can, especially colour bombs which you can clear particular jelly squares.
- Try to bring a horizontally striped candy to the bottom row. Then activate it as soon as possible. Alternately, combine striped and wrapped candies to clear the bottom 3 rows.
- Make wrapped candies and detonate them at the lower corners.
- Let the candy bombs deal with themselves. Creating large cascades is very helpful in this level.
- The priority of this level is getting rid of the icing and clearing all the jellies. Nothing is better than getting multiple vertical or horizontal striped candy to clear the bottom and straight icing.
Earning More StarsEdit
- The presence of six colours make it hard to create special candies. However, this is made less critical due to the candy bombs which are dispensed.
- The jellies are worth 104,000 points. Hence, an additional 86,000 points for two stars and an additional 126,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
- The awkward shape of the board combined with icing make it harder to create special candies.
- The three layer icing present mean that a good number of moves have to be spent to clear them.
- There are plenty of jellies and icing that need to be cleared in 50 moves. This requires the creation and usage of special candies. Moreover, plenty of cascades may be required. All these will give plenty of points.
- Candy bombs will drastically boost your score if a colour bomb + candy bomb combination is used. However, this combination is hard to create due to the board having six colours.
- Destroy the three layer icing at the centre so that it will give you more space to create colour bombs.
- This level used to top the hardest level in the game many times.
- As of now, even though it is in its classic insanely hard version, its rank has dropped drastically, maybe due to mechanic changes.
- The obsolete nerf was the biggest since level 65, with a massive difficulty change from "Insanely Hard" to "Easy". This is no longer the case. However, this does not hold true for the whole game since Dreamworld had an even bigger nerf in one of the levels.
- This is one of the few levels in which candy bombs are not present at the start of the level.
- The level design resembles the Chinese word "Shan(山)", meaning mountain.
- This used to be one of those few levels where both the reality and the Dreamworld counterparts of the level are "insanely hard". The same goes for level 125 and level 323.
- This is one of the few levels to make a cameo in a Candy Crush Saga television advertisement. The other levels are 33, 50, 70, 97, 181, 290, 350, 361, and 461. Most of these levels were rated hard or harder.
- This level has an icon bug that shows the third version of this level.
- This level spawns sugar drops, when that feature is active.
- Cyan line(s) show where the candies and candy bombs spawn.
- Dark blue square(s) indicate the position of double jellies.
