Level 1285 is the fifth level in Butter Rum Reef and the 490th jelly level. To pass this level, you must clear 45 single and 33 double jelly squares in 20 moves or fewer. When you complete the level, Sugar Crush is activated and will score you additional points.

Difficulty[]

  • With four colours on the board, it is fairly easy to create special candies.
  • All the jellies are located under the liquorice shells, frosting (four and five-layered), and sugar chests.
  • Seven wrapped candies are provided to help destroy the blockers. However, four of them are under liquorice locks and the other three are respectively contained in two, three, and four-layered sugar chests. These three wrapped candies inside the sugar chests are likely to be consumed by chocolate, if there are no spaces that let chocolate spread to other spaces.
  • All sugar keys are already present on the board, under liquorice locks.
  • Four chocolate squares are initially present, strategically positioned to attack the wrapped candies upon release from the chests.
  • Two chocolate fountains will produce additional chocolate, but it is not hard to control.
  • The jellies are worth 66,000 points.[1] Hence, an additional 2,000 points is required to earn one star.

Strategy[]

  • First, break some of the frosting and free the wrapped candies along the sides using regular matches.
  • Next, explode the unlocked wrapped candies to clear the frosting squares and start growing the liquorice shells.
  • Try to delay collecting the sugar keys somewhat, until at least some of the frosting is cleared. Otherwise, the wrapped candies released by the chests will instantly be devoured by the adjacent square of hungry chocolate. With the frosting destroyed, there is a good chance the chocolate will eat a regular candy instead.
  • If you free a colour bomb, try to combine it with a colour matching one of the wrapped candies inside the column of blockers. (Do not worry too much if the chocolate eats those wrapped candies, however, as the level can be completed without them.)
  • Ultimately, a colour bomb + colour bomb combination (preferably two) will be needed in order to destroy all the liquorice shells in time, so keep an eye out for this combination. The liquorice shells at the top of the board is particularly hard to destroy within the moves allowed, if not by using this combination at least once.
  • Once the lower half of the column of blockers has been destroyed, make vertical striped candies as well as striped + wrapped combinations in centre board, to finish off the upper liquorice shells and jellies.
Note: The chocolate in this level seems to have a penchant for eating colour bombs any chance it gets! If you release a colour bomb next to a square of chocolate, use it immediately.
