Level 460

Level 462

Level 461 is the sixth level in Sugary Shire and the 194th jelly level. To pass this level, you must clear 63 double jelly squares and score at least 125,000 points in 55 moves or fewer. When you complete the level, Sugar Crush is activated and will score you additional points.

Due to a lot of chocolates placed in inconvenient positions and will spread once the locked candies are cleared, coupled with the board having six colours which make it hard to create special candies and clear the blockers, and the board layout making it harder to clear the jellies once all the chocolates are cleared makes this level insanely hard to pass. Even after the nerf it is still insanely hard. It is available to be voted as the hardest level in Reality.


  • The chocolate is the player's main annoyance, as they are placed on the isolated part of the board. The jellies are also extremely difficult to reach. Even after the chocolate is removed, it can still be very hard to remove the jellies in the bottom. 
  • The odd shape of the bottom of the board makes some jelly squares extremely difficult to clear.
  • Only 55 moves in six colours makes this level extremely hard to pass.
  • The jellies are worth 126,000 points [1], which is more than the one star target score.

Reality level 461 strategy

The areas marked in red are the ideal locations for the wrapped candy + striped candy combination to happen as it will destroy all the chocolate in one move.

  • Try to break down the blockers on the top center of the board to maximize the chance of creating special candies.
  • Use the jelly fish wisely - it would be best to clear most of the jellies on the main board, so that the fish will target the bottom. However, this is not completely necessary.
  • Make as many combinations as you can; in fact, this level is nearly impossible to pass without them. Colour bombs and striped candy are extremely helpful in this level. Wrapped candy + striped candy and wrapped candy + wrapped candy combinations can help, but they have to be placed perfectly.
  • If you do not clear the chocolate before it starts spreading, you will have a lower chance of winning. Destroying the chocolate should be your first priority!

Earning More StarsEdit


  • The presence of six colours makes it hard to create special candies. However, it is less critical due to the need to use special candies to clear the relatively isolated blockers and jellies.
  • The jellies are worth 126,000 points. Hence, an additional 74,000 points for two stars and an additional 104,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
  • The chocolate will spread if the liquorice locks are opened, making it hard to clear the jellies and sustain huge point cascades.
    • Due to the above point, it forces the creation of a strategically placed wrapped candy + striped candy combination to clear the chocolates in one move (refer to picture in strategy section for the position). This gives the player plenty of points [2].
  • Even after all the chocolate is cleared, there are still a lot of jellies left especially the ones where the chocolate once occupied at the start of the level. This allows for huge point cascades.
