Shanghai - Level Help

[Post New]by bfgWaimea on Nov 25, 15 4:31 PM
Hi Everyone,

With all the cities that are available for you to explore, we realize that it can be a little tricky to find help or give advice for specific levels in each city. To help with this, we've set up the Gummy Drop! City Directory and have created threads for each city.

This specific thread is dedicated to Shanghai. To help keep everything organized, we're asking that all requests for help or helpful advice posted here pertain to this city only. If you'd like help with a different city, do check out the Gummy Drop! City Directory in order to find the appropriate thread.

In the post below, the moderators will try to add links to existing threads that contain helpful hints for this city. However, we'd like to ask everyone to create any new Shanghai posts here. You can do this by clicking on the Reply button. If you'd like, you can also change the Subject line to the specific level that your post is about.

Cheers,

bfgWaimea

Hi kakeza,

I see that there is some trouble getting through Shanghai, Level 84. This was definitely a tricky level that took me a few tries to get through.

You definitely have to work fast at this level. What I found helped was to create as many line crush boosts as you can. You can achieve this by matching 4 gummies. Once they go off, they will not only help to get rid of gummies, but to control the desert tiles as well. You want to try and get as many red gummies to fill up the red chained color blocker. Once this color blocker goes off, the rest will follow allowing the souvenir to drop.

If you find that you are still having issues, you are welcome to reach out to our Customer Support Team with the email address that is linked to your Gummy Drop! game. With enough reports of certain levels, we can work with the appropriate team to help fine tune them.

I hope this helps! Good luck!

Hi, I am stuck on level 112. There are not enough white stars to trigger the white star blockers. Can you please advise me how to get around this
Thanks, SHOOTER

I got the first level with no problem. The 2nd and 3rd level seem impossible. 18 moves to get 350,000 points. Any ideas?

I finished level 112. I had to use 8 shovels. I am done with Shanghai.

SHOOTER - I just downloaded Shanghai, so I'm on Level 1. However, there are levels in other cities (Paris 12-2 for one) where the same thing happens. I call them "Functionally Dishonest" levels because the game NEVER provides the resources you need - white gummies in this case. What I had to do on those levels is use a shovel to destroy the blockers. I hope this isn't totally off base, since I haven't seen that screen yet. Ed :-)

How do you get rid of the regenerating paper BEFORE the bombs go off? I must be missing something. Thanks!

I REMEMBER that level - it was about to drive me NUTS! You have to somehow (mostly LUCK I think) get a Lightning Bolt + Line boost combo to clear all the chains on the outside columns. I might have also used a shovel or two - can't remember for sure. One thing I do remember is "X-ing" out of at least 20 screens looking for ones I thought were beatable, and it still took many tries, "Beatable" in this case meant being able to generate a lightning bolt in the early moves; I guessed/predicted incorrectly on several occasions.

Level 37 - timed level (very short time, I might add) with bombs??? That's just not even funny, I already do poorly on timed levels, now the added panic of trying to bust the bombs before they go off.....ugh!!!!!

Level 32 - I;m stuck on the Master Builder level. I tried the Architect level many times before I got lucky and managed to create several lightning boosts and a line boost or two. But I am totally frustrated with the Master Builder level.

Still stuck on this level after five weeks. Have brought boosts and contacted technical support who kindly offered me a boost to help dig out the colours. This wouldn't work as I just am not getting enough blues or greens to dig out. I love playing the game and I know all the combinations and use them to no avail. Any advice please.

You have to be VERY VERY lucky to create enough line boosts to beat this level the way the moderator suggests. I followed another posters advice, and beat it the first time! wooohooo LOL Simply use a shovel to detonate the red chained bomb/blocker in the lower right hand corner. That whole side will be cleared, then all you have to do is make enough matches to finish getting the points you need. Still look for line boosts, etc - but you won't need nearly as many.

Thanks for the update! I just reached Level 112, and have the same issue. ALL those white "star bombs" to fill up, and very few white gummies to do it with! I'm going to try the "X-Out" method to see if white gummies eventually show up.

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to pop in here and address the recent posts in this thread. I'm sorry to hear that there is some trouble getting through particular levels.

Below are links to threads that contain hints on how to progress through certain levels that have been posted here. It is highly recommended to use the 'Advanced Forum Search' option under 'Search All Forums'. Be sure to also use the drop down menu to select Gummy Drop!. This will help ensure that the search is limited to the Gummy Drop! forum.

Shanghai level 27 pls help

Shanghai level 71 and level 72-1

Shanghai level 21

For Shanghai 112, what I found helped was to create as many line crushes as I could. This helped to get rid of the gummies on the board as well as add white gummies. If you find that not enough white gummies are appearing to fill up the chained color blockers, please reach out to our Customer Support Team with the email address that is linked to your game.

Shanghai 32 was indeed a tricky level. To help get the souvenirs through the board, I concentrated on getting rid of the chained gummies on the ends. By creating line crushes, this helped to clear out some of the chained gummies. If you are able to swap two line crushes together or a Lightning Bolt Boost with a line crush, that is even better. Once the chained gummies are cleared, you will find that the souvenirs will make their way to the sides of the board eventually falling through.

For Shanghai 37, this level I ended up working very quickly. What I found helped was to create line crushes as well. These line crushes helped take care of the chained gummies as well as the bomb gummies. If you are able to create two Lightning Bolt Boosts to swap with one another, that will help to clear the board and give you more time to clear out the tiles and get the score level requirement.

Shanghai 92 was another level that I ended up working very quickly on. I found it helped to focus on making matches at the bottom of the board to take out the tiles there first. Try not to focus on the layers of stickers so that you can work fast on getting the tiles on the bottom part of the board. Once these are taken care of, you can focus on the top part of the board and get rid of those tiles. For the top part, line crushes help as well.

Shanghai 29 can look intimidating with all those notes everywhere. I ended up focusing on creating Lightning Bolt Boosts. If you are able to swap a Lightning Bolt Boost with a paper, that will help clear out all the paper on the board. This results in the souvenirs dropping through the board and you are able to work on the score level requirement. Another way to use the Lightning Bolt Boosts is to swap them with one another. This will clear out the entire board that includes the paper notes and gummies.

If you find that you are still having issues, feel free to reach out to our Customer Support Team with the email address that is linked to your Gummy Drop! game. The good news about Gummy Drop! is that with enough reports of certain levels, we can work with the appropriate team to help fine tune them.

I'd also like to remind users of the Forum Rules when posting, specifically,

Treat others with respect. Harassing, attacking, threatening, provoking, calling unwanted attention to, name-calling, insulting, or bothering other users, moderators, or Big Fish employees on the forums will not be tolerated. Play nice.

Good luck!
