Can anyone tell me if there is a clue to this puzzle elsewhere or is it simply trial and error?

I have worked several puzzles with no problems.

Now, all of a sudden, I have a puzzle that is not fitting together properly. There are gaps in between some of the pieces. Even the border is not fitting properly. I had about half of it finished when this started happening. I saved and exited and went back and it's still not right.

I will say this, I usually don't use "ghost" but I was having a difficult time working it so I turned it on briefly, and then off. It seems like that's when it started happening.

Anyone else having this problem? Is there a fix?

I have really been enjoying this game. Lots of pictures I like and I like the format and the ability to modify. I worked several puzzles with no problems.

Now, you said you got everything else. I still can't figure out Level 3-11. I can't figure out how to clear 12 pearls at once on this level.

This one takes patience. Sometimes when you get near the end, you have to drop pearls on one side or another to weigh down everything in order to match the last one. Leave the turquoise one at the right until the end because you need to match everything before you match the last pearl with an object in it. In order to get three stars.

Before you clear any of the other pearls surrounding the wheel, drop a turquoise pearl on the slide that is roughly at the 10 o'clock position (as if you were looking at a clock). That pearl will fall into the wheel but will not be able to drop anywhere until it gets all the way around to the turquoise one at the lower left. Then do it again BEFORE you clear the orange red or green pearls around the wheel. Then do the same with a green pearl, the same with a red pearl and the same with an orange pearl. In that order.

Actually, what you need for the right hand star changes with the particular level. Sometimes, it's just that you have to match the 3 crystal hearts, sometimes you just have to get all the pearls before you match the pearls with objects inside, sometimes its the # of pearls you can drop to get all of them (if you go over, you don't get the star), sometimes you need to clear a certain number of pearls with one drop. There's probably more scenarios that don't come to mind. But if you hover over that 3rd star, a little box will appear to tell you what you need to do to get the star for that level.

Got it. Place two green, then two red and one more to push it up.

I have more of a problem getting the upper left green one. Suggestions?

So, OK. This level is easy and can be done in the time allotted.

The big problem is clearing 12 pearls in one drop (necessary for 3 stars).

Any suggestions?

Yep, that did it. On about the 5th try it worked. Have to be quick!

Thanks so much!

You have to be able to clear 15 pearls with one drop.

I will give your suggestion a try. I think that would be really hard but I will report back.

No suggestions on Level 11. I haven't been able to get 3 hearts on that one either but I think it's a matter of being able to do it fast enough. I have the same problem with 2-6, I know how to do it but run out of time. Sometimes that's luck, too--when you get the colored pearls you need at the moment.

Can't figure out how to release the two side hearts without them falling down so fast that they roll off the bottom heart ledge.

Well patience is the name of the game for #10, too. As a matter of fact I just got 3 stars on that one a few minutes ago but I've been trying for some time. I got some beam pearls on it which helped clear a lot.

Thanks for the tip on #7 and I do try to do what you said but never been successful. I have cleared all the pearls with items but never have been able to clear all the pearls before I do that to get 3 stars.

Still enjoy the game, though. It's my go-to game when I just want to sit and chill. If it was too easy, I guess it wouldn't be fun.

There aren't any special tricks. Most of the levels are just luck and speed. The first time I played, I got all the levels but #7 in the Challenge group (have never bested that one). I'm on about my 5th player now and have been stuck on 6 of the challenge ones for some time. I know it will be luck in how the pearls are arranged and how deftly I drop them and eventually I'll get it (except #7) and even that could happen with lots of luck.

Is there anything you are trying to do and can't, or are you just running out of time?

I don't know that there is any special trick to getting this one. Getting lucky with where and how the pearls fall. I have done it, but it is one of the tougher ones. Sorry I can't be of any more help.

I was getting frustrated so I just started dropping marbles like crazy, which forced them all to the bottom and eventually, shoved the marbles containing objects together so they'd pop. I got 3 stars out of it (the rating of 3 stars). Hope it works for you!


I have tried this and I always end up popping all the pearls with objects before all of the pearls are popped and you have to get all of them for 3 stars.

This is the only level in the game that I have never been able to get 3 stars on.

I assume the 3rd star you can't get is time? This level just takes lots of patience. If you end up destroying one of the two same-colored pairs of seaweed covered pearls, you may as well restart because you have to get all the pearls with something inside of them. I find it better NOT to break the purple ones until later otherwise the pearls tend to mound in a pyramid and they can't be broken apart that way. When you are trying to match the seaweed pairs, don't drop directly in center. Drop a little to the side of the lowest one.

No special trick, just patience.

fungameplayer has it right. That's exactly how you do it.
