Level 1497 is the seventh level in Precious Pond and the 708th jelly level. To pass this level, you must clear 81 double jelly squares in 16 moves or fewer.
When you complete the level, Sugar Crush is activated and will score you additional points.
17 moves may not be enough to clear all the jellies with the cramped board and the fact that every space has a double jelly on it.
The jellies are worth 162,000 points, which is more than the three star target score.
Choose interior combinations that explode with the most surrounding icing.
The left side is harder to clear, so choose an explosion there, when you have a choice of multiple moves.
Because candies fall from the top, the bottom half is harder to clear, so choose a move there also, when there is a choice.
As always, choose to explode a combination which depends on a jelly you are moving by, rather than one on a conveyor belt which will probably be there the next time.
Earning More Stars
There is no difficulty in getting two and three stars as the two and three star target scores are only 20,000 points and 30,000 points respectively. The jellies are worth 162,000 points which is more than the two and three star score requirements.
