Well judging by the pile of friends I have sprawled over the level 29 marker I’m going to make a judgement call and say its a tricky one. With an objective of clearing 99% of the blocks and earning 16 000 points I’m having flashbacks and remembering why this has become a pit stop of some length for so many.
Its not hard, its frustratingly hard!
But If I can do it so can you, its just a matter of forward thinking and figuring out the consequences of our actions (wow I sound like my 10th grade teacher!)
First of all Burst all the balloons on the very left until the bomb hits the wire cages, then blow it up! this will give you some headway. Work your way along until you lower the key to the locked up rocks, and release them once the key is free. Try and save your remaining balloons, they will come in handy soon. Once you have unlocked the row of rocks and they spirit off into the ether you may start popping balloons. You’ll notice that bursting a balloon can unlock a few cages at a time, but only by blowing up adjacent blocks, you are not bursting the blocks inside the cages but the ones next to it! Don’t go too silly once you have dropped the screen enough start to break open the cages from below, preserve as many balloons as possible…they always seem to come in handy, but keep that screen moving down.
This is not a level where your moves are limited so hit it, but dont forget about your firecrackers, use them wisely and remember that you cannot start earning another until the first one had been set off. If you have one on the board and a whole set up of big combinations ahead maybe just set it off and clear a little more. Remember the screen wont drop down if there are moves and blocks or balloons holding it up.
There are more keys below and firecrackers are perfect for freeing them. Keep your objective in mind as you go, dont find yourself on the bottom of the screen with a licorice all sorts bag of colored blocks left over and thinking ‘where are the pets?’ your aim is to clear 99% of the blocks ….doh! This means you can only have 1 left! Aim to keep colours together and if you can save a bomb for the bottom I assure you this will come in handy, inevitably you will end up with two blocks…yeah, did I mention frustrating?
