Odus-alarm This level is hell!

This level is currently nearly impossible to beat without boosters (or even with boosters).
This is likely caused by a level buff, lack of moves, an objective which requires insane luck to fulfill, a level glitch, or a design error.
This level is currently, or likely one of the hardest levels of the game.

Trivia[]

  • This is another level where you have to collect 81 double jellies.
  • This used to be the first mixed level. However, level 216 became the first mixed level because of a redesign.
  • This used to be first jelly-ingredients mixed level (Mixed new (Jelly new Ingredient drop new)). For almost a year and a half, this was the only mixed combination in the game, with jelly-timed mixed levels (Mixed new (Jelly new Timed new)) levels being introduced in level 2781 (before their removal). Following a redesign of the levels mentioned above, this is now the ninth mixed level in the game. Also, it once had or now have a record of being the first mixed level with all of the categories of hard levels:
    • It was the first mixed hexagon/hard level.
    • It was also the first mixed super hard level.
    • Now, it used to be the first mixed nightmarishly hard level, but the first level with this trait is now level 255, and level 305 as the first nearly impossible mixed level.
  • This used to be the first mixed level with four colours. The first level with this trait is Level 217.
  • There is an icon glitch on this level on Flash version that causes the icon to load as a moves level. However, when you mouse over it, it becomes mixed. This occurs for any hexagon level that is a mixed level type.
  • This level spawned sugar drops before this element was removed.
