I'm stuck at level 94, anyone know what I can do to finish it? I can only free two caged fruits on each attempt at best and it's frustrating! I got here quite easily, why is it suddenly so hard?

There are several caged fruit threads with tips in them already (one of them might already have helpful info for you!) Here are a couple: Level 82 (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?63811-level-82), and Level 14 (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?63718-Stuck-on-level-14). ;) For Level 94, I found it was easier to start at either the left or right side bottom in the rounds I played, though that could've just been the boards I ended up with. I passed it twice, and both times I linked the left key to its caged fruit first, then the center, then the other side. I found it's much easier working this type of caged fruit level from the bottom up. I also made sure I had a good "headstart" when the round began...a trail of fruit at the bottom, leading away from the same-color key (either the right or left key.) If I didn't have this, I'd restart the level.

Once I identified the key with the best "start" from the bottom, then I'd start clearing the larger chunks of other-colored fruits in the way. Work from bottom to top, until you have a trail all the way to the caged fruit. Then, move on to the next one. I have some screenshots to better demonstrate this, but I haven't had a chance to add them to Photobucket yet. I'll try to do it tomorrow, then add them here...

Took awhile, but I finally loaded my screenshots into Photobucket. Here's how Level 94 looks when you start:

When you start this level, look at the keys at the bottom. Make sure you have a good "head start"...that is, same-color fruit next to and leading up away from (at least one of) the keys. In the example above, each key has at least one matching fruit next to it. And there are several red fruit--leading halfway up the board. If you don't have same-color fruit next to one or more of the keys, then restart the level. It's much easier this way. Because you work this type of level from the bottom up, it can waste quite a lot of moves trying to get matching fruit down next to the keys...

So during this round, I decided to work on red first (my biggest "head start.") I cleared the green fruit on the left side of the board, then removed a couple other-colored chains of fruit (FC's.) After 3 moves, I had a line of fruit all the way from the key to the caged fruit:

After matching the red key to caged fruit, I decided to work on the yellow. Again, I cleared groups of fruit, working from the bottom up. That is, I looked at the highest point the yellow reached, and moved FC's that were in the way, hoping (sometimes calculating) that yellows would drop into place, bringing the yellow FC up higher. After a couple more moves, I had this:

I connected the yellow key to its matching caged fruit. (BTW, I traced from bottom to top, because there was a yellow bomb. If I had traced it from top to bottom, the bomb would've exploded below, probably taking out green fruit I needed for the final chain of fruit/FC!)

Now I had lots of green fruit at the bottom of the board. Working from there, I decided to remove the yellow first, detonating the blaster that was part of the chain over to the left (not wanting to disturb the green already established at the bottom.) I figured I'd have to deal with the remaining reds on my next move. Here's how that match looked:

But I got lucky--that match completed the green FC from the opposite side! Here's how the board looked:

Connected key to cage, & passed with 2 stars-yay! You have to make decisions/choices sometimes on these caged fruit levels...and it doesn't always work out (you never know what colors will fall.) And of course, some boards are just "unlucky." But you will pass eventually if you start with a "good" board (that has a "head start,") and work from the bottom up. Working from one side to the other worked best for me--red, yellow, green, for example. But that could've just been my luck. Go with whatever you're given--you'll get there!

Good luck! :D

Lol I feel your pain. I have been stuck a couple days also. Seems I always need just one more move,sigh.
Or my problem is I will have a yellow or green fruit right beside my red one at the top and can't get it moved out of the way with the number of moves allowed. Good luck!!
