Level 745

Image
16 Moves (revised) Requirements: 10 Flowers 75 Apples 75 Carrots 75 Strawberries A challenging level to finish Episode 46 on. The way to tackle this level is to clear the flowers as quickly as possible. Even just some of them, because once crops start falling and you have room, that is where you gather your points to get enough crops. To start with though, you need to make rows next to your water buckets, to get water to jump onto the crops so you can make a row in the first place. And this is where you will use most of your moves. So if you find you are getting nowhere while your available moves are falling, quit and start again. As soon as you see any possible moves in your flowers, make your rows. As I said before, that is where your points will gather, so once you have space, work there and nowhere else. Use shovels if you need to drop any decent crops.

Level 744

Image
20 Moves (revised) Requirements: 2 Sheep 70 Strawberries 70 Suns 70 Water drops This is a tricky level. You need to watch carefully, because you need to move the sheep in as little moves as you can, to save the moves for crop gathering later on. However at the same time, you need to gather any crops first that might have extra points on. Its not so easy to get everything together so the more moves you have to play with, the better for you. The hay isn't overly easy to manoeuvre into. The best place I found is towards the corner of each side. However there are other ways you can move them, it depends on how you line the crops up. Try to always line crops up so that they cascade, or so that you can make another move straight after. And again the video uses two less moves since the changes.

Level 743

18 Moves (revised) Requirements: 4 Flowers 1 Sheep 100 Carrots 100 Strawberries The spider on this level does NOT need to be collected. The best thing to do is leave him where he is until you have moved the sheep up a few rows. The reason for this being the ice. Yes if you move the spider, he jumps down and cannot web where the ice already is, but once you have broken some of the ice and the sheep has moved, does it really matter what the spider does? If you want to do it the other way, that is upto you, but imo it just means you use more moves. Because as you are busy breaking ice, and opening flowers and freeing the sheep, you are moving crops which will make more fall, and will find some of the webs will be broken for you. As you move the sheep across the board, you will get extra points on falling crops, use combinations and +5 to your advantage. Remember to buy shovels to move obstacle crops out of the way and if the spider hasn't moved by the time you get ove

Level 742

Image
11 Moves (revised) Requirements: 6 Oysters 65 Strawberries 65 Apples 65 Water drops The best place to make rows this time is in the centre on the grass as you get more points on each crop and match you make. If you can't make a row there, if you make a row at the bottom, it will make crops drop down a little. Ideally make as many rows next to as many oysters as you can hit each time. Thereby saving moves. If you open an oyster but cannot complete on the next move, shovels come in handy as if you hit the open ones, they will be taken away. You can also use shovels to drop crops to make a nicer row too. Combinations and +5 are possible, even on that smaller section so don't miss chances to use both when they come up. The biggest problem we have on this level are those annoying bombs. Some of them seem to match up when you are busy making rows, but the others are a pain. If you have any extra shovels left, when they get down to 1, remove them quickly. Other

Level 741 **Rancid**

Image
(revised) In 24 moves we have to throw Apples, Carrots, Onions and Strawberries at Rancid to kick his backside this time. Its not one of the easiest rancids, but that's not a bad thing. The best way to go about this level is to make grass near to the slime wherever you can and make clumps of grass together. That way you clean more crops and gather more points. Look for combinations, and +5, and use shovels to drop crops or remove the slime one if its the same colour in a good row you are about to create. Extra moves have been added since the video was made so you can do it!

Level 740

Image
12 Moves (revised) Requirements: 4 Apples 4 Onions 90 Suns 90 Carrots You need to set off as many firecrackers as you can find on this level. You need them for apples/onions anyway, but the more you have, the more crops you will gather. Try collecting only the crops you need wherever you can, use shovels to drop crops to make better rows, or to set off the firecrackers. Watch carefully for the chances of combinations. Work out how many points you will get for each row you make before you make your move or you end up missing things. If the Kangaroo companion still needs 12 onions to activate it, its a waste of time as you only get 4 onions on the board and cannot make many more. video on request

Level 739

Image
16 Moves (revised) Requirements: 1 Poppy Flower 85 Apples 85 Strawberries 85 Suns Two things you need to remember about this level. You don't need to break all the ice, if you break what is above the bull, you can just go straight up and then right. Secondly, the flowers don't have to be collected or all opened. You only need to open the side that you plan to use the bull to hit the poppy on. Drop crops with shovels. Plan moves carefully and make combinations. 

Level 738

Image
15 Moves (revised) Requirements: 16 Flowers 345 Suns 345 Water drops 65 Firecrackers This is a hard level because of the sheer numbers we need and the fact that they took away 3 moves too since it was release. The key to this level is, you need many firecrackers. You do need to gather 65 anyway, but to get all the crops, you need as many as you can use, because when they explode, they jump on others, or take crops away for you. Another luck level, look for combinations, +5 and higher value rows. I tried using the igniter but had more success with the flower opening companion. See what works for you. You will be able to do it without as long as the board co-operates.

Level 737

Image
22 Moves (revised) Requirements: 4 Fireflies 100 Apples 100 Carrots 100 Suns The best way to get the crops you need is to start at the bottom and always gather the crops with the higher values on. Start with the bottom flowers, and with luck, your top ones will be opened by falling crops. Once the flowers are out of the way, do the same again but with the fireflies. Start at the bottom as you usually end up lighting the top ones, then knocking them out again by falling crops. Sometimes if you just need one more, using a shovel means you don't risk unlighting some. Once flowers and fireflies are out of the way, gather the extra crops. Luckily its not too hard as there is plenty of grass to help. And again the video shown uses two less moves.

Level 736

Image
22 Moves (revised) Requirements: 8 oysters 20 Water drops 140 Suns 140 Apples You will notice we have two free boosters on the board (until they decide to change the level anyway) Don't touch them for now. Make rows that break your crops, and hopefully open oysters too. You should be able to gather points on crops on this board, so if you find you are getting a lot of apples and suns, save the boosters for your water drops. Its the Ariel booster, you get more crops drop, for whichever crop you swapped it with. So if you are short on a few crops to complete one part, that's where they come in handy. Once you can get to your water buckets, if you have enough moves left, you can make enough water as we only need 20 for a change. Video uses two moves less since they revised it so you can do it :)

Level 735

Image
17 Moves (revised) Requirements: 2 Poppy Flowers 8 Oysters 120 Apples 120 Strawberries And another good level! If you cannot move the bull on the left straight up, as soon as you move any crops, the oysters will fall, meaning he has to wait. On this board, the easiest way I found was to move him up, then right. Then down, then back up to get the second flower. You need to get falling crops again (don't we always) but its easy to get one star, three a little harder, so you can always come back to it once passed.

Level 734

Image
17 Moves (revised) Requirements: 1 Spider 1 Sheep 90 Apples 90 Onions A nicer level for a change. Move your sheep down to the hay. Make lots of +5 if you can, or combinations, while unwebbing the spider. Move him to the other nest, then evict him from there too. Cascading crops will make more points which you need to complete the level. Remember shovels for webs, or for moving the sheep onto the hay.

Level 733

Image
22 Moves (revised) Requirements: 3 Poppy Flowers 80 Apples 80 Carrots 50 Water drops Easiest way for this bull, is move him right, then up. Left from the water buckets, then up again. Right to get the top corner poppy, then straight down. The hardest thing about this level is gathering all required crops and making water. There are only two buckets, the one time we could do with more. Combinations, +5 and clever moves are all useful here.

Level 732

Image
22 Moves (revised) Requirements: 2 Sheep 2 Poppy flowers 100 Strawberries 100 Suns The order to move the bull is, right, up then left. Don't move out of the row/column you are in and it will be fine. Once you have got the flowers, move the sheep, you have two places to move sheep to, so move to whichever one you find the easiest gathering your needed crops as you go. Its not as easy as it looks, so don't expect to do it first try, as the crops gathering is the hardest to do.

Level 731

Image
22 Moves Requirements: 100 Water drops 90 Onions 90 Suns 4 Flowers This should be known as the level from Hell. An entire board full of bombs, but all is not lost. When you move bombs, you do get some crops fall. We also have Strawberry and Apple eating frogs. And two extra boosters, that when you swap a crop with them, remove all around them (one layer around) and add points to those removed crops too. So do not waste them by swapping them with your bombs. They will not benefit you at all. Wait until there are crops around them. And if you have points on your crops before you swap, its even better for you. The best way to tackle this level, is to keep matching next to water buckets and frogs. Not only will the frogs eat unwanted crops including bombs, they can also be swallowed by water. When you first start this level, they are laid out the same every time. Its a good idea to use a shovel, to drop a column of crops, wherever you feel will be more help. One use o

Level 730 **Farm Club**

Image
22 Moves (revised) Requirements: 4 Oysters 6 Dragons 130 Water drops This farm club level is as tricky as past ones for getting 3 Stars. To get one star though, its not so bad if you remember to gather all crops with points on first.. You don't even need to make the eggs hatch just yet, they will fall into place all by themselves. The only problem we have are the water buckets. You need to  a whole board of it as you need 130 of the drops. The more points the more stars, so you need to gather as many as you can for all three. More cascading crops will give you more points and hit buckets too. You do need a good board, you need to make as many moves next to buckets as you can, while cracking eggs. And the crops need to cascade down for you to help you massively. If you can get it to do that, with very careful planning and a sneaky shovel here and there, you will pass it. Remember shovels can be used to pat the water buckets too to help them along and to crack eggs.

Level 729

Image
18 Moves (Revised since first released) Requirements: 2 Sheep 12 Oysters 1 Spider 160 Apples The oysters are not too bad to get as long as you make rows along the length or height of them, so you open more than one at a time. You only have one spare nest for the spider to jump in to, so ignore that while you open oysters. Watch for an opening to move your sheep to the corner, preferably making rows of apples if you can, but if you use combinations and watch for falling crops, you can add a nice amount to each crop.  I find to save losing the value on each, if I can use a shovel to drop a crop to make a row, it gives you more points to save. As you are busy gathering apples, move the spider into the nest and away. Don't be too disillusioned if your friends have higher scores, they added 30 apples and took away two moves so now its harder. One star is a pass!

Level 728

Image
26 Moves (Revised since first released) Requirements: 4 Fireflies 2 Chicks 115 Apples 115 Carrots Its easier if you get the fireflies out of the way first by starting at the bottom of the board. Hopefully you will get falling crops that will light up the top ones. Sometimes its handy to use shovels to help light them, it removes them quicker. The less moves you do that part in, the more you have for your egg laying and crop gathering. Try and match on the grass when you can, but this level seems to get extra points easily, you just need falling crops. Make as many rows as you can, next to your chickens to get them to lay eggs, and line 3 up as soon as you have chance.

Level 727

Image
18 Moves (revised twice since first released) Requirements: 2 Spiders 170 Water drops 150 Strawberries 130 Suns There are four nests on this one once you have moved the spiders. You need to make matches next to the water buckets and at some point, it will jump up and make a row above the spiders, thereby moving them. Once they are in the nests. Work to clear them. At the same time though you have the problem of getting enough numbers on the crops to be able to gather the amounts required. With 3 shovels its hard but not impossible. You might use a lot of lives though. At least you get plenty of crops falling to get added points onto your crops.

Level 726

Image
1 7 Moves (revised since first published again) Requirements: 8 Strawberries 25 Firecrackers 120 Carrots 120 Suns This is more of a luck level than a skill level, so don't take it personally if you waste more than your fair share of lives. You need to set off as many firecrackers as you can, they will jump and hit you're strawberries, but more importantly take your other crops away too. You need to make many combinations, +5 moves, and hit as many firecrackers as you can on each move. Your shovels can also help set them off. The more fallen crops, the more value each crop will have as usual. Grab higher points crops first. I won using the igniter companion but it was sheer luck. Because you need 12 Strawberries to activate it, which means building up points on the single strawberries. If by a fluke you can get +9 points and hit others, you would really be able to use it once I think. Which makes it useless as a helper. Unless they change it back to a swan :

Level 725

Image
23 Moves (revised) Requirements: 6 poppy Flowers 150 Water drops 100 Apples 100 Onions. There is no hard and fast path to completing this level this time. You have to take advantage of whatever chances arise. Although you have two sheep on the board, you don't need to get them to the hay, there isn't any? So the purpose of these are to be blocks for your bulls. As you know by now, if a bull hits them, they stop. So use them to line up ready to get the two awkward poppy's, the ones at the bottom of the screen. Of course you don't just have to use the sheep, you can also use the other bulls too and they move sometimes, a lot easier. In which case the sheep are just in the way. Get the easier flowers as soon as you can to save moves, but keep an eye on crops. You should get plenty that fall and complete themselves, but as usual, you will likely find when you actually get all the flowers, its the one time you didn't get cascading crops. I found it

Level 724

Image
17 Moves 1 Sheep 45 Carrots 45 Onions You do not need to clear any flowers as part of this level. However if you don't, you cannot collect the sheep. Remove enough that you can lead the sheep to the hay. Speedily move the sheep in as little moves as you can, while making crop matches. You should find the crop part pretty simple as most will be done while sheep herding and flower opening.  At the same time, also open at least two flowers (you might find the others open as you are matching crops) then lead your sheep home to the hay.

Level 723

Image
16 Moves 2 Sheep 10 Oysters 100 Strawberries  100 Water drops Remove the oysters first then it will give you room to move your sheep about. The strawberries should be quite easy to gather, but you will need to make as many matches next to the water buckets as you can to gather the water. Do it vertically in between buckets for maximum effect.

Level 722

Image
25 Moves (revised) Requirements: 10 Flowers 3 Sheep 120 Apples 120 Onions The easiest way to get the flowers are to make rows between them touching as many as you can.  Combination shapes for rows of crops will be needed here and as soon as you have moved flowers, you need to start moving sheep.

Level 721 **Rancid**

Image
17 Moves (changed) Things to bombard Rancid with: Strawberries Carrots Apples Lots of oysters on the board but you don't need to collect a single one. However, the more you remove, the more room you give yourself for crops to collect. There should be a lot of chances for combinations and +5, so just remember to gather the higher point crops first. Its not the hardest of Rancid levels. But the more points you make, if you are gathering stars, the more moves you have left, the more stars you will get :)

Level 720

Image
25 Moves (revised) 4 Poppy Flowers 4 Fireflies 12 Oysters  105 Apples We have a bull to move, and the oysters act the same as other obstacles, if he hits them he stops. So to keep it simple, if you can remove them before you start moving the bull, it makes it easier for you. Once the oysters are out of the way, move your bull left then right, (or right then left whichever you prefer) then up towards the top one. As long as you have not moved him from that row, he will stay in the column to get the other poppy flower above. Once you have the third poppy flower, move him up again for easiness. I found it easier to get the flower on the top left first, as it gives more space for moving him about. Simply move him up, then across to the other flower. Of course this isn't quite as easy as it sounds. You need to open the fireflies too, which usually end up in several waiting lit ones being unlit with all the maneuvering. You might find it easier to get them before the bu

Level 719

Image
28 Moves Requirements: 1 Spider 1 Sheep 3 Flowers 165 Strawberries This isn't an overly hard level, but it is frustrating as certain parts just refuse to co-operate. If you get the spider out of his nest and into the other one, then move him completely, as a starting point it gives you more room to play with. I opened the flowers next, taking advantage of any added points on strawberries, caused by falling crops. As you need so many strawberries, its a good idea to keep your eye on them so you don't miss any good moves. Once the flowers are at least part out of the way, start moving your sheep. Try and make as long a row as you can to save moves. The more moves you have left, the more you have for your strawberries.

Level 718

Image
16 Moves Requirements: 2 Poppy Flower 4 Sheep 110 Apples 110 Carrots This level is now much easier than it was.  You only have two poppies, so move the bull up once the sheep are out the way and move it to the left and right to clear them. Move the sheep down to the hay, but remember you can move more than one onto the hay if you get them close enough and they are all touching the final row. Make crops cascade for the needed points.
