Candy Crush Saga Level 117 Help
Tips, Hints, Strategy for Level 117, Peppermint Palace
The chocolate won't start to spread on this level until you crush down into the meringue, but the ingredients won't go anywhere either until you're down there! If you find yourself with an ingredient on top of a meringue block, you'll probably be swapping the ingredient upwards to make matches a lot and get through the block. Look at our ingredient swapping guide on the tips page, or - for quick reference - you're looking for the pattern
ANY - CANDY - ANY CANDY - INGREDIENT - CANDY
Then you just move the ingredient upwards to make a match over the meringue. If you're a 'restarter' you can keep refreshing this level until you get a starting point with a candy match right over the meringues. Remember the restart trick doesn't work in Facebook unless you're using the multiple open browser window trick. It gives you a head start on breaking the meringues and clearing the path for the ingredients. They're two-hit meringues, and of course, once you've cleared them, the chocolate is going to start to spread,
Once you've cleared some blocks of meringues you have a path to free the ingredients, try to control the chocolate spread to the outermost columns. If you make any colour bombs, try to save them until you have candy in the bottom half of the screen where the chocolate was, and set them off to help clear up the chocolate.
It's another level where chocolate can be your friend, if you're having problems getting it under control, let it eat up the candy on the outside blocks But as soon as ingredients appear, move them over to the middle columns (again, see our ingredient swapping guide) and, as always, keep trying to make vertical bombs in those columns to get the ingredients down.
