Level 235... fire moves level with restricted jewels and crates

http://i40.tinypic.com/2eoyuxd.png

so this one i just focused on breaking through the crates and releasing the restricted jewels whenever possible. then when you get low enough, you should be able to get rid of the fire with matching or special jewels. and hopefully you have enough moves left after pounding away at the crates and restricted jewels.

Level 236... glass moves level with restricted jewels and crates

http://i39.tinypic.com/2ngzo8w.png

this one i focused on the restricted jewels on top and the crates & restricted jewels on bottom. the restricted jewels on the sides kinda just takes care of itself, but if you can make a vertical match in those columns, i'd make that move. the glass in the corners are double glassed.

Level 237... timed digging level with restricted jewels, super dirt, and snakes

just move fast and the area that you get tripped up on is when you get to the snakes. gotta get rid of em before you can move down but overall not too bad. use those blasters and bombs!

Level 238... timed fire level with restricted jewels and crates

http://i39.tinypic.com/2ur2qo2.png

0:55 to clear the fire. this level i focused on breaking the upper crates and releasing the restricted jewels in the center towards the bottom of the board. then tried to contain the fire up top when i got rid of the crates. then as soon as i released the jewels on the bottom, i was able to do a bomb + blaster combo to wipe out the fire on the bottom. yay

Level 240... timed glass level with restricted jewels, snakes, and crates

http://i40.tinypic.com/oa52fl.png

1:20 on the clock and you gotta move fast! gotta get through all those crates and then kill those snakes too. if you're lucky to get snakes with the same eye color and happen to get a diamond, use the diamond to match up with its eye color for instant snake removal! once those snakes are gone, make sure to focus on the glass down in those bottom corners since they're harder to reach

ok bye bye sentient stones and hello windmill heights!

Level 235: 12 fire in 40 moves (5JC-jewel colors used.) Passed with a blaster + bomb. Moves are pretty tight, so I tried to start with a good match (restricted jewel-clearing move or one that creates a special jewel.) If I didn't see a one, I restarted the level.

Level 236: 20 glass in 40 moves (5JC.) This was really fun! Passed it with a blaster + bomb, followed by a diamond, then a diamond + blaster... Sure did enjoy the moves levels!! :D

Level 237: Dig 8 meters in 2:00 (5JC.) As prev mentioned, hard to get past the snakes. I've tried it twice--pathetic! Hope I can figure out how to do better, cuz otherwise I'm gonna be stuck (again...on a timed level!)

Changes: 235 & 236 were both 30 moves (+10,) 237 was 1:40 (+:20)...in photos from earlier posts in this thread...

Omg, just passed 237! It was taking me so long to get thru the snakes. They're hard to reach, and a blaster + bomb set off in the middle (touching the snake body) won't kill the snake. On the round I passed, my snake heads were both green, so I was able to use a diamond to kill them quickly. [If you're having problems, you might want to wait for levels where the snakes have the same eye color (or restart the level 'til they do.)] I also used a couple blaster + bomb combos...1 right after the 1st screen scroll and 1 near the goal line. So happy...thought that level was gonna beat me up, lol. Still, only got 1 star. But at least I get to move on soon as energy recharges! :)

Level 238: 16 fire in 1:05 (5JC.) Ouch, this one's fast! Tried it a couple times and it isn't pretty (my attempts--pitiful!) This already seems impossible, but I'm hoping I'll get used to the layout and be able to move faster. Waiting for my pulse to lower a bit, then I'll try, try again...

Wow, nearly killed myself trying to pass 238! You have to hustle...swipe like crazy to clear crates/restricted jewels & get the fire down to a manageable level. Once you do that, though, focus on getting a blaster + bomb down to the bottom to wipe out the fire. I had to calm myself so I'd make smarter moves (cuz I found I was missing opportunities by moving too fast.) I really hate timed levels like this--no fun, and soooo stressful! Just glad this one's over.

Level 239: Dig 10 meters in 55 moves (5JC.) passed on my first try, but only got 1 star and needed every move (combo'd blaster + bomb as my last move...with one piece of super dirt left, lol!) Enjoyed the level, so I will be happy to play again for more stars~ :)

Level 240: 14 glass in 1:40 (5JC.) Only had enough energy to try it once. Until halfway thru (when board opened up a bit,) I could only make 1 move, reshuffle, find move, reshuffle, and so on. Finally did a b&b combo which really opened-up the board (killed snake & set up another blaster + bomb to take out the other.) I have a feeling this level will be impossible unless you can get some good moves right out of the gate. We'll see...

Changes: 239 was 45 moves (+10) & 240 was 1:20 (+:20) in photos from earlier posts.

Ugh, done with 240! I mean--yay! ;) I finally got some "early-round movement", which let me get some combos going near the bottom. I also had regular 3-matches in the lower corners on both sides! Couldn't believe it! I think the time is pretty darn short on this one. It was very stressful...I'm just glad I'm past it (thank Goodness!)

So excited...moving on to Windmill Heights (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?53413-Windmill-Heights-Levels-241-246)!

Level 240, bomb and blaster did the work. But first I got diamond and destroy the snake. The other snake I blasted with blaster.

I'm SO glad you mentioned how you can restart levels!! I started it a few weeks ago when I read one of your posts about it, and it has helped me several times!

I just moved to 237. I absolutely hate timed levels...

So glad restarting levels has helped you, mlove30! I learned how to do it by reading a post of OmniBliss' looooong ago; it's helped me countless times. This forum is great cuz we all help each other, lol! Re: timed levels...you & me both! :p Good luck on 237! :)

Made it through 237 sometime yesterday. My first time playing 238 I got a great board and was one flame away with a match right beside it...and time ran out!! Ugh! I was actually going to buy some time (since I absolutely hate times and would do just about anything to get through them) and since my fingers were moving so fast I clicked the game off!!! Double ugh!!!!!! I haven't gotten anywhere close since! One of these days I'm just gonna quit playing this game!! Lol

Congrat's on 237! Bummer on missing your chance to get past 238, but you'll get there again. Hang in there--hopefully you'll get a really lucky board & beat it with no help at all! I know what you mean, though. I often feel the same way. But every time I think "this is it" I finally get thru...and love the next level. Yep, Jewel Mania really has its hooks in, lol. Good luck, mlove! :)
