Level 499 is the fourteenth level in Meringue Moor and the 211th jelly level.
To pass this level, you must clear 54 double jelly squares in 35 moves or fewer.
When you complete the level, Sugar Crush is activated and will score you additional points.
Destroy the cake bomb as soon as possible as it is essential to clearing the rest of the board. Striped candies and wrapped candy combinations except the colour bomb + wrapped candy combination will be useful in destroying the cake bomb in as few moves as possible.
If you are worried that clearing the cake bomb will destroy all the wrapped candies on mobile devices, fret not. Unlike level 421, clearing the cake bomb will only uncover the wrapped candies. In fact, even if the wrapped candies are uncovered, they will not get destroyed.
If a pair of wrapped candies on the left side of the board are uncovered, do not activate them at all costs.
Do not create colour bombs before getting rid of the cake bomb as you may be forced to use it and cause wrapped candies on the left be released while there is no other move on the right.
Once the cake bomb is destroyed, a party popper will remove a lot of candies, jelly, and icing. Furthermore, all the wrapped candies will be uncovered. If you are lucky, the wrapped candies may move to the main board. Use them to in pairs to take out a good portion of the bottom and a lot of the initial bombs that will fall. This is provided if they are not set off by cascades which can happen due to the board having five colours.
Even if the wrapped candies do not move to the main board, try to make matches on the main board so that the wrapped candies will move in pairs if possible.
After all the wrapped candies are used up, create special candies to clear the remaining jelly and icing.
The presence of five colours makes it easy to create special candies.
The jellies are worth 108,000 points. Hence, an additional 212,000 points for two stars and an additional 252,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
The lower halves of the cake bomb will require special candies to clear them. This in turn will give the player plenty of points.
Clearing the cake bomb will remove a lot of blockers, making it easier to sustain huge point cascades due to the exposed double jellies.
Candy bombs will boost your score and will endlessly spawn, giving players many opportunities to create colour bomb + candy bomb combinations.
35 moves are limited in earning a huge amount of points due to sugar crush and the limiting of the number of special candies created via regular matches. However, this point is less critical due to the massive amount of candy bombs which will be dispensed once the cake bomb is cleared.
