Istanbul - Level Help

[Post New]by bfgWaimea on Jan 26, 16 12:24 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 Istanbul. 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 Istanbul 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

Level 88 needs fixing, there are never enough greens and reds to blow the 4 colour blockers in the corners and since the last update it is no use using shovels because they only take out the blocker and don't blow the surrounding papers. This effectively means you HAVE TO BUY EXTRA MOVES!, I thought you were always meant to be able to get a level without buying boosts?? And, to make matters worse this was only the intern level - no way am I ever going near this one again!!

Hi Everyone,

I'm sorry to hear that there is some trouble getting through certain levels in Istanbul.

What I found helped get through Istanbul, Level 88 was to focus on making boosts such as line crushes and bombs. These could be created by making a combination of four or more gummies. If you are able to swap them with one another or with a Lightning Bolt Boost that is even better. By having the boosts go off on the board it helps to fill the color blockers to take care of the notes and add gummies to the board. I find that focusing on filling the color blockers first and then working around to clear the entire tile helped.

For Istanbul, Level 102, this is indeed a tricky level on all tiers. What I found helped was to first swap a Lighting Bolt Boost with a paper. This helped to clear the paper off the board. I then focused on swapping another Lighting Bolt Boost with another boost such as a line crush or bomb. This would hopefully be in the form of the brick or pink gem since they are chained in the middle. Once those are free, gummies will appear in the middle section. Matches to clear the tiles was my next objective. After the middle portion is cleared. I then worked to obtain the rest of the level requirements. Since this took me numerous attempts to get through on all tiers, I'm going to go ahead and pass this information along to the Gummy Drop! teams. If players continue to experience issues with this level, please reach out to our Customer Support Team. If you are able, please provide the email address that is linked to your game. I'll include a help article below. The good news about Gummy Drop! is that with enough reports of certain levels, we can work with the teams to help fine tune them.

Any tips for 76 - 4? I have lost too many lives on this one. Once I managed to swap a lightning with a line blast, but the columns that needed verticals only got horizontals.

ETA: finally lucked out. Power ups didn't help enough. The time I finally got it I didn't buy any power ups, but I did manage to make multiple lightnings. The HH at the end of that path gives a bunch of hats for coins, but IMO shipping and replaying 46 - 2 is a better choice than paying that many coins, because I'm only about 500k shy of the total needed for the monument. If I needed two million hats, I would choose to buy the HH.

Level Help 102

[Post New]by rrrrob on Mar 14, 18 3:59 AM
It appears this level has been adjusted, got it on my second try easily. The first attempt I tried the old method of banging the 2 lightning bolts together as has helped in some levels but you really have to get rid of the paper first then get rid of the chained blockers in the middle then make a bunch of matches in the middle holding on to one lightning bolt to either get more pinks or to clear 1 gummy stuck in a corner.
