Hey, guys.

Glad to see that I'm not the only one that keeps getting sucked into and addicted to different app games. I got this one to get gold for Dragon Story and gems for Castle Story. If people are having trouble and one level in particular, maybe it would be good to check here if a bunch of players start using this space to help other people and get help from others.

What does anybody have to say about level 34 (Free 1 Caged Fruit in 17 minutes)?

Don't remember level 34 but if it's any of the caged ones, those have been easy so far. Just don't think straight line. Diagonal or round about line of fruit is what works for me on any of the caged ones

My advice is to work from the bottom up and clear colors you don't want in order to build chains of the color you do want up to the key.

I'm stuck on level 83 right now.

You just have to draw a line of same color fruit from the key to the cage. As others have mentioned, clear colors you don't need, leaving the colors you do. I find working from the bottom up works better, as well...

There are directions (and screenshots, as well as the original, in-game "tute" from level 13) at this Level 14 thread (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?63718-Stuck-on-level-14)... But basically, you just create regular chains of fruit, leading from the key to the caged fruit (or vice-versa--direction doesn't matter.) The key does not move...nor does the caged fruit. Your fruit chains can extend beyond the key/caged fruit, so feel free to keep going past them in your fruit chains (the longer, the more points you get!)

Other "caged fruit" threads: Level 82 (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?63811-level-82) and Level 94 (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?65352-Stuck-on-level-94), as well as this Caged Fruit (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?64243-Caged-Fruit) thread.

What's the trick to level 162? I've made horizontal blasters to hit & remove the stumps on the left side, but I'm left with only a few red fruit--not enough to go from key to cage. I also tried hitting a blaster on the left, making it go vertical. But that cleared all the reds, and there aren't any new ones falling in. (It seems there's only a set # of reds.) I'll keep experimenting in the meantime, but if anyone has the "secret," please share! ;)

02-23-14, 03:50 PM
Lol, I figured it out. I played level 162 again, and had a blaster land on the first red fruit. I removed the stump to the right of the key, which put the blaster into the 2nd column. Then I hit it with a horiz./row blaster from the other side, which made the col. 2 stumps clear faster than column 1 (when hitting with row blasters.) After that, I could see what needed to be done. Cleared the remaining stumps in column 2 with row blasters, but left the last "stump stage" in col. 1. Finally, my reds fell into place perfectly! I took some screenshots...

Here's how the level looks when you start:

http://i1300.photobucket.com/albums/ag81/Beadsbykat/Fruit%20Splash%20Mania/72cb6df0-d9ed-43d2-8361-04b030c654bf_zpsdf62010c.png

I had lots of trouble figuring out what to do. I knew to use horizontal blasters to get rid of the stumps, but clearing them all the same way just left me with a mess.

The answer finally came to me by accident. I made a blaster, which landed on the lowest red fruit. I started clearing the stumps the way I had been--that is, working from top to bottom (the top stump/next to the key, then the next lower set, and so on.) When I cleared that 1st stump next to the key, the red fruit with the blaster fell sideways into that 2nd column spot. The lightbulb finally went on, lol! I hit that blaster with another one, and it blasted only the stumps in the 2nd column. I realized that I could then go back to blasting away at the stumps with horizontal blasters, but now that 2nd column would open before the 1st. This would allow the red fruits to drop perfectly into place.

Here's a screenshot when I had just one more stump in my way:

http://i1300.photobucket.com/albums/ag81/Beadsbykat/Fruit%20Splash%20Mania/247ee78c-3b2f-4fdb-b8bf-f673d40748f3_zps536a4b36.png

BTW: If you can't get a blaster to "land" in the right spot, you could also just use your free cross-blast boost on that 2nd column. That would get the stumps to clear "unevenly", too--that is, get the 2nd column to clear faster than the 1st column.

Finally, here's how it looks when you get the reds in place so you can connect the key to the caged fruit!

Hmm...wondering if there's a special trick to Level 186...a specific way to pass the level (like with 162.) So far I'm not getting it. I'll keep trying, but if someone wants to share their method...(:D!!!)

Phaedrakiki
03-23-14, 03:49 PM
Oops, forgot I'd left the above post about level 186. I did finally pass it. You have to sort of "dig into" the stumps a bit, carving out an area with your matches so that the green fruit from the sides "folds inward" a bit. Then it was up to luck, at least the way I did it, in getting a few more greens to fall in and complete the link from key to caged fruit.

Here's how the level looks when you start:

http://i1300.photobucket.com/albums/ag81/Beadsbykat/Fruit%20Splash%20Mania/3a7ebe63-930c-41f5-a59e-bf1fedcff57d_zpsaf9972b1.png

Before I figured out what to do, I was making vertical blasters and just blasting away at the stumps, hoping greens would fall in as I removed other fruit. But not enough green fruit will fall. You have to make the green fruit from the right & left columns fall sideways (plus hang on to some green fruit that do fall in from the top.) What I finally ended up doing was try to clear the stumps from the middle outwards. That way when the stumps start to clear in the 2nd and 2nd-to-last columns, the green fruit fall inwards...helping to connect the left & right sides. I think keeping the stump on top of the right/left columns intact helps, too (though now I'm not sure--been a couple weeks since I played & I'm so forgetful!) Anyway, here's how my board finally looked right before I passed the level, connecting the key to the caged fruit:

level 144 does not give correct points check it out knock three out 1 point if your lucky. it doesn't add up your extras might delete this game!

Phaedrakiki
04-10-14, 12:59 PM
I just tried level 144--seemed to give the right amount of points for me (300 for 3 fruit, 450 for 4, etc.) If you weren't getting any points for matches, sounds like some sort of glitch with your game. Try deleting/reinstalling (progress is saved on their servers, don't worry.) If that doesn't work, contact support@teamlava.com. You can also check out the Bugs & Issues (http://forums.storm8.com/forumdisplay.php?269-Fruit-Splash-Mania-Bugs-amp-Issues) section of the forum...see if it's a known issue. The thread at the top can tell you everything to do (& info to include) when having/reporting issues with your game.

Good luck!

Level 221 is giving me trouble. It's a "points" level, and the moves seem really tight! I'm only playing rounds with 7+ fruit chains...or irresistible FC's that take out most of the doom slimes (or I restart.) I'm clearing the vines & stumps as soon as I can, though the main consideration is the long FC's for blasters & bombs (& higher points, of course.) Not sure what else I can do, except wait around for a luckier round. I just had a heartbreaker--got 47,700 out of the necessary 48K. But it was the luckiest round I've had yet, and I even used my free xblaster boost to pad my score a little (and join some <7 yellow fruit groups to make a much longer chain.) What else can I do to pass this?

Anybody have any tips to share?

Phaedrakiki
04-20-14, 07:07 PM
Nvm, I passed 221. Instead of striving to make lots of 7+ fruit chains (FCs) for blasters, you have to make even longer FCs. I had a 21, 19, and a few other "'teens" FCs during the round I passed. Eventually, you'll get a round with better opportunities to make really long chains (for big points!)

A 7-fruit chain is worth 1200 points, but 21 fruits in a chain gives you 10,650 (over 8x the points!) See this thread (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?64535-level-68-help!) (post #4) for more points info. So it's worth making a couple small 3 or 4 fruit matches--as long as they bring same-color fruit together to make a much longer chain.

Big points also come from using special fruits together in combo, or using one to set off another of a different color. Use the shading as a guide to test which configuration or swiping direction clears the most fruit.

Good Luck! :)

I've been stuck on Level 246 for quite a few days (clear 18 mud in 12 moves.) It features 3 of the new Rainbow Fruits--which I love. They're a lot of fun, and can help make blasters & really long chains of fruit (FC.) I feel like I've tried everything on this level, but I never have enough moves to finish.

Have others passed level 246, and if so...how? Thanks!

I need help with level 132

132 basically, you need to create as many blaster as you can with the longest possible chains. Then setting them all off together. But you need to make sure before starting the level you have at least a chain of 5 or more - and that you clear the vines FIRST! All of them (not in the first move but each move clears at least one until all gone). Then create blasters and set all of them off in the same move and don't wait until the very last move to do this. Just in case you need a few extra points. !!! I was stuck for days, but kept at it. Then 2 days ago, it just "happened". But now I'm stuck at 133... So aggravating! Well I hope this helps

Greetings kellabella83!

I just replayed this level, and was planning to include screenshots here but I can't figure out how to do that... 😩

Your first task of the level is to eliminate the vines. As long as one vine is eliminated in a turn, it won't grow. Keep an eye on the exploding fruit at the bottom, as elimanating that will be your second task.

Key Point: Don't waste time clearing all the stumps. Focus on the middle column where the apple will drop.

[Side note: I'm working to pass Lvl 148 and went into the FAQs to look up stump info. I found nothing on stumps but discovered a game-transforming fact. 🙀 I had always assumed Fruit Blasters were randomly given, i.e. horizontal or vertical. FAQ said: "If the Blaster is earned on a horizontal match, it will create a Row Blaster. If the Blaster is earned on a vertical match, it will create a Column Blaster."
Maybe everyone already knew this...☺️]

Key Strategy: Make as many vertical Fruit Blasters (connect 7) as possible.
Use them to blast the center column to make the apple drop straight down. Once the first apple drops, use additional vertical blasters to drop all following apples.

Hope this helps. Best of luck to you!

Your task for Lvl 118 is to clear the crystals, not collect purple plums, in 24 moves.
