San Francisco - Level Help

[Post New]by bfgWaimea on Nov 25, 15 4:18 PM
Hi Everyone,

With all the cities that are available for you to explore, we realize that it can be a little tricky to find help or give advice for specific levels in each city. To help with this, we've set up the Gummy Drop! City Directory and have created threads for each city.

This specific thread is dedicated to San Francisco. To help keep everything organized, we're asking that all requests for help or helpful advice posted here pertain to this city only. If you'd like help with a different city, do check out the Gummy Drop! City Directory in order to find the appropriate thread.

In the post below, the moderators will try to add links to existing threads that contain helpful hints for this city. However, we'd like to ask everyone to create any new San Francisco posts here. You can do this by clicking on the Reply button. If you'd like, you can also change the Subject line to the specific level that your post is about.

Cheers,

bfgWaimea

Bellaboo22, I copied an older post about this level:

Hi Doan11,

I was just swimming by and noticed that you were asking for some help with level 8-2 in San Francisco.

This particular level gave me a bit of trouble too when I got there, but I want to assure you that you can beat it.

To do this, you'll want to create, or start with, a few lightning bolt boosts . One of these can then be switched with one of the paper pieces on the board which will help to clear out the papers, and tiles, in that center box.

Then, if you have any tiles that haven't been broken yet, you can then create another new lightning bolt and switch it with whatever color gummy is appearing on that tile. Once all of those pesky papers and tiles are gone, you can continue to match gummies to get the score requirement needed.

Hope this helps

I did a search on the forum, this post came up:

Hi Oceanview2301,

I'm sorry to hear that this Gummy level is giving you some trouble. As redroo mentioned, another player was also having some trouble with this exact same level. Not to worry though, because I have some tips on how to get past it without going back to look for that thread.

One thing I noticed when playing this one though is that the board is set up almost like a grid.

To get the score that you need, you'll want to try and make as many large matches as you can. Doing this will create line boosts, bomb boosts or lightning strike boosts that can be used to gain more points.

When using those boosts, you'll want to try and hit the gummies with the extra time. This way you'll add more time on the clock so you can continue to match those gummies and get points.

Hope this helps

to ness louise: in Tokyo, between levels 35 and 45 you will find a drilling machine. Click on it and on the far left, it will tell you how much of a resource you will need to generate a gem. if it is resources you need, you can always send a cargo ship from Sydney.

Now I need a little help. I have gotten almost to the end of level 30 by directing lightning bolts at pink and green gummies. However, since there are no blue ones, I have not been able to clear the board. Does anyone have any suggestions?

If you click on the Trade Center (gold circle thingie) you can use the green gem drill anywhere except Sydney

Make sure you haven't missed any side paths/Helping Hands/collect10 that would give you green gems

Do I need to "build" a dock/pier in San Francisco? The one already there only ships goods TO New York, not FROM Tokyo!

1. Resources are only shipped to the city you are currently in. So if you are already in New York you can't ship to San Francisco from anywhere.

2. To be able to ship you need a port only at the point of departure, not the point of arrival.

3. It follows that you can't (and don't need to) build more than one port in each city. But you can upgrade it to be able to ship larger cargos.

Ok, makes sense. But--the cargo is loaded in Tokyo ready to be shipped to San Francisco but the "Send Cargo" remains grayed out. Why, please?

Did you first select the resource you want to send? After that the send button should light up.

San Francisco 108 Master was a notoriously difficult level that has since been fixed (has now 6 bolts and 15 moves instead of 4 and 8 previously!)... But it's still difficult. The only thing I can tell you is that you should first swap two pairs of bolts to clear the board and then work on the score.

I've completed the first stage of all levels through 110, but the next (and final) block of levels hasn't come up. What's wrong here?

Re:San Francisco - Level Help - Level 60

[Post New]by bmq98 on Feb 6, 16 6:57 PM
Hi,

After completing the gathering of the final oxygen tank in level 60, the game gave me the green gems. Sadly, right after that my game froze.

When I restarted the game, I lost the gems and the diver is missing! How do I get the diver back?

Thank you.

PS: If I find an answer I will come back to post.
