Level 273 is the thirteenth level in Holiday Hut and the 118th jelly level.
To pass this level, you must clear 18 single and 18 double jelly squares in 54 moves or fewer.
When you complete the level, Sugar Crush is activated and will score you additional points.
It looks like a very typical jelly level, but it is actually pretty difficult. There are many layers to remove, and only fifty five moves. It is hard to remove all the jelly even with five colours.
Also, the entire bottom row, separated from the rest of the board, has 12-move bombs which teleport to the main board when a match is made on the same vertical row as the bomb. This means one needs to pay attention to the bottom at all times; failure to do so could mean a bomb potentially exploding on the bottom or arriving at the top while about to explode. Due to the need to waste moves on clearing the bombs, this makes clearing the jelly an extremely difficult task and will take many tries generally.
Not only that, but almost every move you make will spawn one to three bombs!
Looks are very deceiving in this level, and probably here more than any other level. This level has also gained a lot of hate due to how generic and easy it looks, only to find its many hidden difficulties.
This level is hard because there are so many 12-move bombs that will fall very often; there will be two of them. If you do not pay attention to the bottom and get too carried away with the jellies, a bomb could explode on the bottom row or arrive at the top with as little as 2, 1, or even 0 moves left, so be careful about it. Also, maybe because of the moves you waste within dealing with the bombs, there might be a chance that you will not clear all jelly.
Step by Step:
Look for a potential special candy match. If there are none or the match is not adjacent to the multilayered icing, refresh the level until you can finally make that match.
At move 54, make a match that will create a special candy.
At move 53, already 1 to 2 candy bombs are on the board. Do not worry about them. They will be dangerous when they reach 5.
Moves 52-49: You should have already eliminated the bombs, but there are more. Ignore them for one move.
Move 40's: Try to take care of the first row of icing while destroying a bomb or more per 1-2 moves.
Move 30's: You should have already destroyed a third of all the icing and cleared 7 jellies. Work on the others.
Moves 20-15: If you have a bomb already counting on 4, it is okay. That is very normal. Set the priority on the bomb. If you do not then work on another third of the icing.
Moves 14-12: You must already destroy 8 icing squares. Now work on the rest of the jellies and icing.
Moves 11-1: This section takes a high risk and will require a lot of luck. You must already have cleared everything and completed the level in this section.
