Level 147 is the seventh level in Gingerbread Glade and the 70th jelly level. To pass this level, you must clear 52 double jelly squares in 35 moves or fewer.
When you complete the level, Sugar Crush is activated and will score you additional points.
This level used to be one of the most notorious levels in the game and was considered one of the hardest until the web version went through a massive nerf in the end of 2013. Following that, it has been buffed and nerfed several times, until they were unified on October 2016 for all versions.
Try to bring a horizontally striped candy to the bottom row. Then activate it as soon as possible. Alternately, combine striped and wrapped candies to clear the bottom 3 rows.
Destroy the two-layered frosting at the centre so that it will give you more space to create colour bombs.
Try to make moves on the top jellies.
Make wrapped candies and detonate them at the lower corners.
Let the candy bombs deal with themselves. Creating large cascades is very helpful in this level.
The priority of this level is getting rid of the frosting and clearing all the jellies. Nothing is better than getting multiple vertical or horizontal striped candy to clear the bottom and straight frosting.
The presence of five colours make it easy to create special candies.
The jellies are worth 104,000 points. Hence, an additional 86,000 points for two stars and an additional 126,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
The awkward shape of the board combined with frosting make it even harder to create special candies.
The two layer frosting present mean that a good number of moves have to be spent to clear them.
There are plenty of jellies and frosting that need to be cleared in 50 moves. This requires the creation and usage of special candies. Moreover, plenty of cascades may be required. All these will give plenty of points.
Candy bombs will drastically boost your score if a colour bomb + candy bomb combination is used.
This level used to be considered as the hardest level in the game, along with level 65.
This is one of the few levels in which candy bombs are not present at the start of the level.
The level design resembles the Chinese word "Shan(山)", which means mountain.
This used to be one of those few levels where both the Reality and the Dreamworld counterparts of the level are "extremely hard", along with 125 and 323.
This is one of the few levels to make a cameo in a Candy Crush Saga television advertisement. The other levels are 33, 50, 70, 97, 181, 290, 350, 361, and 461. Most of these levels were considered by many to be hard.
