As with any level at the end of a Candy Crush Saga episode, level 290, which marks the end of Candy Clouds episode, is bound to be as hard as it looks like. The objective of clearing the jellies sounds so simple, but not when you realize that these jellies are behind four-to-five-layer meringues.
Aside from having a lucky board, what you need to have in this level is plenty of opportunities to make combos that will blast off the meringue blockers. But that’s easier said than done, even with only five candy colors on the board. Hence, here are some other tips that might come in handy once you tackle this level.
- Objective: Clear all the jellies and score at least 35,000 points.
- Moves :50
- Stars: 1 star = 35,000 points; 2 stars = 70,000 points; 3 stars = 95,000 points
Just like what I said before, the only way to survive this level in just 50 moves is to take advantage of all the combos you can make. With only five candy colors on the board, it won’t be too hard to create a color bomb or striped candy. The hard part is finding a way to combine them without accidentally setting them off.
Almost any combination can help you in this level, but the best one would be the color bomb plus striped candy combination. If you have two wrapped candies, make sure to combine and activate them when they’re near the blockers so that they can blast off more meringues.

Working low will not only help make cascades, but will also help get rid of the multilayer meringues that are blocking the jellies. A good rule of thumb is to make sure that every move you make destroys even just one blocker. That way, no moves are wasted.
Back to Top
You might notice that there are several jelly fish scattered across the board. Don’t fuss too much about them since they won’t be able to contribute much, especially in a board still full of meringue blockers. Simply release them when you need to and do not combine them with any special candies because that will only waste the special candy.
Although the sheer number of blockers in level 290 can be disheartening and a bit overwhelming, don’t let this hinder you from finishing the game and moving on to the next round, the first level in the Jelly Jungle episode. That whole episode should be fairly simple for you, so I would recommend you ready yourself for Candy Crush level 305, which is likely your next greatest challenge.
