Level 7-11 Designer Flaw

[Post New]by Peace1369 on Mar 8, 12 1:23 PM
Has anyone been able to beat this level? There is a designer flaw in it that the two spaces in the bottom middle the game pieces are gone from the board and they do not fill in bombs etc will not clear the space because there is nto a game piece sitting on top of it. This is very annoying because I am almost done with the game and was hoping to find out that once I finished it that maybe it would let me replay the levels to get the gold. If anyone has completed the game please let me know if it will let you replay the levels once you have beaten the game. And for sure if anyone knows how to complete this level. Help Please

Ok after many tries and endless attempts I manage to beat this level. You cannot hit your bonus which swaps the tokens around are those two will dissappear, same thing if it resets the board itself because of no moves. I am very upset that I purchased this game now as it will only let you play the levels thru once.
What is the point of giving a gold silver or bronze if it will not let you replay the levels to go for the gold. This game has absolutely no replay value to me because of this. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS GAME

I've run into the same thing! How did you get it to work? Just use no bonuses?

Probably best to report this in "technical issues" since it's apparently a bug.

Definitely a design flaw - played with no bonuses and still cannot get the cells to clear.

I finally finished that level. Yes, it's a flaw, but it can be worked around.

If YOU clear the problem cell (via a swap OR using the purple one-cell bonus) then you're okay. It doesn't matter then that no more jewel appears. That cell is done.

However, if you swap the whole board using the yellow bonus, or if the game does it automatically, only the jewel vanishes and the cell doesn't clear -- the dark cell background stays dark. It took a few restarts on that level, but I finally cleared those cells (unfreezing with bonuses and swaps, and then using the purple bonus right away). It took a long time and some luck.

By the way, while the two problem cells are still frozen, you can use all your bonuses, including the yellow swap-all. Those two cells are only a problem when unfrozen.

Hope that makes some sense!

When I start out the one cell is empty, and I can't clear it.

I was really enjoying the game until now

I did it the way Endofmonth did, and it worked for me on my third try.

Did not mar my enjoyment of the game, I like it when some
levels are more difficult.

I think this is a beautiful game.
