Level 259

Can you see the boosters we are given for this level? They remove the crops from the area around them. A good idea would be to make sure the value of the crops around is higher than normal ;) It can be swapped with any type crop. The more points you have on the surrounding crops the better, as using them will add more points again. We need so many crops this time. Watch out for those bombs though! However even if they all go off, its not the end. You will have more space once they have all gone, for more falling crops, meaning extra cascades, +5 chances and combinations. Make matches and plan to see where others will fall, if you time it carefully, they will keep falling and making matches, multiple times.

Level 258

Image
Grumpy cropsies, but grass in the middle of the board. While not helping your needed crops, grass can make flowers grow when you make matches next to them. Try and remove the higher flowers first as when they have gone, its easier to have multiple matches fall onto the lower ones. But at the same time, if you make rows on the bottom, more fall and have the chance to match. Make sure you match your apples and carrots on the grass so they equal more value.

Level 257

Image
Use shovels on seeds to save moves. Make egg matches carefully and hope that you can make multi matches in one move.  

Level 256

Image
In order to be able to get the chicks, you need to first start by removing the flower obstacles. Of course this also has to be done while dodging around and matching up to remove the bombs. If you make matches near the water though, and are really lucky, the water will jump out and replace the bombs. Remember you need a lot of water, so the smart thing to do would be to try and make matches that will combine water and flowers if you can Not an easy level to do as it takes a lot of work, you just need to persevere with it. Using companions helps.

Level 255 ** Farm Club**

Image
Iced bombs to hinder you. But even if iced, if you can make 5, the iced ones still count to remove all their kind. Make the right combination and with a little luck, and one move can result in many falling into place and being taken. We know its obvious but try not to let the bombs go off, we need so many crops for this level, you will fail if they do. The good news about this level is that you only get needed crops falling. The bad news....you need many, many + 5 moves to get all 3 stars.

Level 254

Image
Pretty straightforward level, you just need to grab the chicks and dragons....oh and dodge the sun and water bombs. Nothing to it.....much.......really...... But.......ooooh when the bombs explode on this level, they don't seem to take away anything. So you can safely ignore them if you want to. It seems easier to get the chicks made first before the dragons. Or it could have just been me, but I seemed to get a lot more dragons made. Use shovels to either break eggs, or to drop the bombs so that you can make an egg row in its place.

Level 253

Image
We have Ice, water barrels, bombs and grass. Watch carefully where you can match bombs up to remove them, plan moves ahead of the one you are making. Use shovels to remove crops if you can match others up with the iced bombs, that way you don't even need to break the ice. You don't need to break all the ice up, but if you do, it gives you more water buckets free. Its easier to get the water flowing, so that it jumps over to open your flowers.

Level 778

Image
23 Moves (revised) Requirements: 85 Water drops 85 Carrots 85 Apples 5 Flowers Grow your own flowers here. So make as many rows next to the water as you can. It will add to your needed water drops, but also if you get enough water on the board, it will wash away your crops and get some more needed ones falling. Be careful not to make flowers where you will stop crops falling and try to make them near each other so that you can make rows in between more than one.

Level 777

Image
19 Moves 2 Sheep 60 Apples 60 Carrots 60 Onions Make a row of crops underneath the seeds and they will fall down. You only need one for hay so ignore the others but make it so its more in the middle rather than against the edge. Once the hay is made, lead the sheep over to the hay. Combinations and rows of +5 will get you extra crop points. 

Level 776

Image
15 Moves Requirements: 6 Poppy Flowers 90 Strawberries 90 Suns 90 Water drops You need to move the bulls to hit the flowers again, but luckily they are possible without any moving around. Make sure you have cascading crops and combinations for extra points along with any +5. There are no real tips for this level, as its more a case of making the bulls behave and getting added value.

Level 760

Image
18 Moves 3 Fireflies 3 Flowers 75 Carrots 75 Suns Open the fireflies quickly in as little moves as you can. You will have to make most matches above as until they are out of the way, no more crops will fall. You need to grow your own flowers this time, so you need the water to end up at the bottom of the board as that is where all your seeds are. Luckily on this level you seem to get plenty of chances for combinations and even +5 moves to help. When you have your flowers made, the best way to treat them is like pregrown flowers, hit as many as you can every time you make a row to save your moves. Quite a fun level to end this episode on.

Level 759

Image
29 Moves (revised again) 90 Water drops 22 Dragons 90 Onions 90 Suns First thing to know, you never have more than 6 eggs on the board at one time. So if you don't make any matches, you won't get any more falling. You would be able to gather all the crops you need in that case, but would fail as you need so many dragons making. While you are busy making dragons, watch for the higher value crops when you are making matches, because its quite hard to get the amounts you need.

Level 758

Image
16 Moves Requirements: 3 Poppy Flowers 160 Apples 160 Strawberries You can easily make a +5 and get the bulls into position for the best place, by making the row of 5 apples. This way you only need to move the 2 bulls down, then one back up to the top, then left then down for easiness so be careful of other matches you make so you don't knock them. The bomb destroying companion does come in really handy here, but it can be done with a lot of patience without if you are low on beans. Break the ice covering the suns. Then you can move your bulls down etc. As per usual, this is a level relying on combinations for extra valued crops.

Level 757

Image
17 Moves Requirements: 8 Oysters 90 Apples 90 Suns 90 Water drops You have many flowers on this board but you don't need to open every one to complete the level, but you will need to open some though otherwise you cannot get to the oysters. Try and make matches that go along the flowers so that you open more than one at a time. Use shovels to make successful matches too. Aim for combinations and +5 to be successful here.

Level 756 **Rancid**

Image
20 Moves We need 390 of Carrots, Apples and Onions. There are lots of grumpy slime, lots of sheep and lots of hay. We don't have to move any sheep to pass the level, but we must to get them out of the way so that more crops fall onto grass, and the more sheep you move, the less you drag about when trying to match crops. Its easier if you can move several sheep straight onto the hay in one move, because to get all the crops, you need a lot of extra points and a few moves left at the end when Rancid is defeated.  You need lots of falling crops for extra points on the removed crops. Make sure you remember your shovels.

Level 755

Image
28 Moves Requirements: 2 Sheep 120 Apples 120 Carrots 120 Suns Break the iced suns, you can make a +5 straightaway usually here. Move the sheep up, but you also need to make your hay patches yourself. Try and make them as near to the sheep as you can for easiness. As well as doing this, you also need to be getting lots of extra value on crops and hopefully have cascading rows matching themselves up too, as it is quite difficult to get all the numbers you need. You do need lots of patience for this level.

Level 754

Image
14 Moves Requirements: 1 Poppy Flower 18 Oysters 180 Onions Keep the bull where it is while ridding all the oysters first. Sometimes its easier to start on the vertical oysters then work on the rest. Hit as many as you can with every match you make, using shovels if you open some you cannot get to again to stop them closing. Look for +5 of any crop and combinations for extra points as you need quite a few onions. Once the oysters are opened, move your bull into position, but its pretty easy to get him.

Level 753

Image
16 Moves Requirements: 6 Flowers 100 Carrots 140 Strawberries 140 Suns Some of the flowers are made, some have to be made. We have a rabbit eating bunny here again. You don't have to make grass, but if you do, you will automatically gain extra points on your crops. You need plenty of cascading crops for added points too, but this is one of the better levels this episode. Keep an eye out for combinations etc.

Level 752

Image
17 Moves Requirements: 16 Flowers 130 Apples 130 Suns 130 Water drops A good idea is to start at the bottom, or plan moves carefully so that when you make a move, it makes more matches further up. You need to hit as many flowers as you can every time you make a row to be able to fulfil all requirements in the moves you have. The flower opening companion does come in useful here too, but you can complete without using any.

Level 751

Image
16 Moves 2 Poppy Flowers 2 Sheep 60 Suns 60 Water drops Move your sheep out of the way so you can get the bulls up. Once they are up, I would try and move the sheep to the hay before you move the bulls over, as once they are sat in the hay, they take up a hay space. You have more room for moving if you do it before. At the same time however you need combinations and +5 moves so plan moves carefully. Watch for chances to move the sheep and then once they are gone, the bulls should be easy as you move them to the side, then down.

Level 750 **Farm Club**

Image
14 Moves (revised again) 1 Poppy Flower 14 Flowers 125 Onions 125 suns The best plan of action is to break open as many top flowers as you can, and as many bottom flowers as you can, in as few moves as possible. If you remove as many top flowers as you can, then you get enough falling that will make rows and open up the others for you. You need to get a clear path between the flowers blocking your way to the poppy flower from the bull. As soon as you have a clear opening, get the poppy out of the way. Again that will give you another space for crops to fall through. Make sure you buy shovels as these can make rows for you. Concentrate on bottom flowers as again, the falling crops can open top flowers all by themselves.

Level 748

Image
 Moves (revised) 1 Flower 55 Strawberries 70 Onions 110 Water drops Personally I found making more water is harder, so start that first. Because if you get your water first then the frogs jump up to the top part out of the way. Some of the ice is broken already by flying water drops which makes it easier for you to start opening your flower. Then if you have enough moves left to finish the level, you will get lots of falling crops in the lower half. Which means with all the added value, you will get enough points to finish. If you get the frogs moving earlier then they jump onto the top side and you cannot make your water. However as I have wasted too many lives on this, even before they made it harder, perhaps the people who have said get the other crops first, were right.

Level 242

Image
Ice, slime and grass level. You need to remove the ice to get to the flowers at the bottom. Remember that even grumpy crops can free ice and unlock a flower. Make as many matches as you can near the water buckets. They should jump all over the board, and to where you need the iced water match, cracking it for you. Gather all higher points crops first to make sure you get enough of the ones you need. Don't worry too much about grumpies. There is enough grass that they can help but not really hinder.

Level 241 **Farm Club**

Image
And the bomb crops are back for this challenging farm club level. Remember that they only remove some of your crops, not all of them. So might be worth considering how much losing a few will affect you before you sacrifice a good move. Even if you match 5 crops using some of the ticking fruit, they will still remove all of your same crops, even if the tickers don't count towards your score Use your shovels on the bombs, this will help limit wasted moves. The best plan of action though is to gather your needed crops as quickly as you can. Grab ones that have higher points first. Once you have all you need, the bombs vanish so you can work on your extra stars then.

Level 240

Image
Try and get the flowers on the outer edges first, the inner ones are easy really. Don't worry about trying to get the suns to much, they will take care of themselves while trying to do the rest. You need to make matches near the barrels to make your water, but also the water drops will help open the harder flowers to reach when they land there. +5 of any crop will help, because not only will you get extra value on crops, you also get new crops falling to give you more chances of making rows.

Level 239

Image
Work on the vertical columns of flowers first for more success, and when you make matches at the bottom, remember falling crops can open upper flowers too. Mostly the eggs will match themselves up, you might need to just give them a little tweak, but if you can open as many flowers as you can in each move, then you have moves to spare. Gathering the onions should happen as you make your flowers open, but grab any first that have extra value on. Don't forget your shovels here!

Level 237

Image
You have water bombs so you have no choice but to waste moves making water to counteract them. If you try to make matches near the water tho, chances are the water will jump to where you need them. Although this can also be helpful, because if you are running out of crops, by water jumping everywhere and making its own matches, you get more crops falling down, meaning not only could you get extra crops you need, you also get extra points on the crops already on the board. If you gather the crops with higher points first, you will soon get all the crops you need.

Level 236

Image
If you don't match up and get rid of the bombs, when the bomb explodes, they steal all your crops that you have already collected But there is a little good news, they can be removed with a shovel Just make sure you keep an eye on ticking bombs and remove them before they go BOOOOM The other alternative is build up your points on your crops, so that you gather them quickly. Don't worry if you have a bomb explode..as long as you are at the top end of your needed crops with plenty of moves left, you can build them back up again. Once you have your needed numbers, bombs vanish and that is where you build your stars up :)

Level 775

Image
17 Moves (less crops needed now) Requirements: 9 Oysters 4 Poppy Flowers 135 Apples 135 Strawberries You need to plan all moves carefully on this level. You need to open the oysters in as few moves as possible to save moves for gathering crops or more likely, moving the bulls. Be careful that when you make a row it doesn't move two bulls causing them to crash. Its easily done (holds hand up) Move one bull down and one bull across when you have free space ready for oysters being removed so you can hit the poppy. Cascade crops too. Combinations again, and the jury is out on if the companions help or not.

Level 774

20 Moves (Revised) *5 more moves than video* Requirements: 4 Flowers 7 Poppy Flowers 250 Apples 250 Carrots Apologies for the very long video that accompanies these tips. If you stick with it though, the second half of it gets better. You can see cascading crops in action, moving from one star to three. I have to brag and say it was a good video :D You will likely find that you open the flowers mostly by just making your crop matches which is good. Unlike some of this episodes levels, this is actually a fun one that keeps attention. Move the bulls to tackle the poppy's pretty much from the start of this game. Find the best combination to get them all, but at the same time get the higher value crops when you make matches. Watch out for +5, it doesn't matter whether its for a needed crop or not, because the more of any type that are removed, the newer crops you have fall, leading to more possible matches. Set your rows up so that when they match up, anot

Level 773

Image
18 Moves Requirements: 150 Apples 150 Carrots 150 Onions 150 Strawberries The good news is, you only get the crops falling that you need to collect (so no water drops or suns) the bad news is, you have probably used all your free boosters by now...oh and we have red and green frogs. There are two ways of tackling this level. You could either bite the bullet, set the frogs up and make as many rows as you can on grass. Or try and avoid the frogs for as long as possible while gathering as many Strawberries and Apples as you can. Either way, its not easy. The rainbow coloured boosters you see on the board, trapped behind the iced crops...I haven't decided if they are useful or not really. Theoretically they are, use them on a circle of extra valued crops and they come in handy I suppose, otherwise they just seem a waste moves. Might be a good idea to count how many crops you will gather if you use them. (remember they add value to the circle they gather too) You

Level 772

Image
18 Moves Requirements: 4 Fireflies 6 Oysters 70 Apples 70 Water drops Start with the fireflies as usual as they are the most problematic. Watch out for vertical matches that might start opening oysters too. Once the fireflies are out of the way, open the oysters and get them done as they are a pain too. At the same time though, you need to be watching for combinations and +5 moves. Use you shovels to help you do this so that you can get the maximum points in the moves given. Its not an easy level, mainly down to the oysters so don't despair.

Level 771 **Rancid**

Image
(revised) With 20 moves to play with, we can throw Carrots, Strawberries, Suns and Water drops at Rancid this time. We also have problems in the form of grumpy crops and snowballs. The best time to make better rows is at the beginning before any of the problems fall. Make matches on grass wherever possible for extra points. Use shovels wisely to help you make combinations and +5 matches.

Level 770

Image
25 Moves Requirements: 16 Oysters 90 Water drops 90 Suns 90 Strawberries Lots of combinations, +5 and cascading crops are needed for this level. You have a lot of oysters to collect and the only way you can get all these is to open more than one at a time while doing the above. Boosters come in handy here unfortunately, but at least it means you pass if you need to use them. The companions both have their uses, but don't always help, a lot of it comes down to luck. The small squares of grass are handy for removing slime sometimes.

Level 769

Image
20 Moves (revised) Requirements: 2 Chicks 225 Water drops 135 Carrots 135 Apples Its pretty easy to get the water as many rows make themselves next to water buckets. There are many eggs, so its not too hard to make chicks. The hardest part is gathering the rest. Make plenty of water, it will flood the board enabling crops to fall as well as getting the required total. Also you need combinations and +5 to get the rest. It helps if you use the water companion in this one, can't remember what its called, but it helps fill your buckets.

Level 768

Image
21 Moves (revised) *9 More moves than Video* Requirements: 4 Poppy Flowers 110 Apples 110 Carrots 8 Oysters The natural thing to do with this level, is to move the bull straight across. Its easier. However, the best thing to do, is move the bull either up or down, then move it right. That means it will line up and hit a poppy as soon as it goes across. If you moved your bull down, then right, the easiest way would be to move it up, to hit the top poppy (you already hit the bottom right one), Then move it left to give yourself some moving room (doesn't have to be all the way across), then back right to hit the next poppy, and then down for the last. Every move really has to hit an oyster as well, just to make it a little harder. As well as doing that, you need to make combinations, and +5. Get any higher value crops first as this is a really hard level. Its easy enough knowing what to do, but getting it to co-operate is harder. Good luck!

Level 767

Image
15 Moves (revised) Requirements: 4 Fireflies 100 Carrots 100 Suns 100 Water drops Back to a fun level again. As is usual on the fireflies levels, open the ones at the bottom first, because when you have falling crops, they won't get switched off so easily. Remove them in as few moves as you can, saving your remaining moves for crop gathering. The key to getting all the crops you need is make rows on your grass for added points, and also watch out for combinations and +5 moves. This isn't such a hard level, so you should find it easy to get one star :)

Level 766

Image
26 Moves (Revised) *4 More moves than video* Requirements: 2 Spider 2 Poppy Flowers 150 Apples 150 Suns Another impossible level made even harder by the changes and then they decided to increase the moves so they do listen. Open the poppy's as soon as you can, you may have to break webs with your shovel though to ensure a clear run. Line up crops so that you get cascading crops because you will need extra points to enable the completion of crop gathering. Try not to stun the rabbit when he pops up because he does remove some of the bombed crops we have. Although I prefer not to use companions, I didn't have a choice here, but you will notice that I only had 16 moves, so you get an extra 10 :)

Level 765 **Farm Club**

Image
26 Moves (revised) Requirements: 1 Chick 120 Apples 120 Carrots 12 Oysters You only ever have the same oysters on the board at one time on this level, so you won't get any more until you have removed them. You need to open oysters every move. You need to make chickens lay eggs on most moves. You need combinations, many many +5 and a whole lot of shovels to get your crops. You also need a lot of lucky crops and no silly expectations of completing quickly. **edit, I still think all of the above, but the trick to the level is falling crops over and over so the level more or less plays itself. Plus they added moves again so its more fun now.

Level 749

Image
16 Moves Requirements: 10 Flowers 120 Apples 120 Carrots 120 Suns Each of the sections are closed off with flowers, so you need to open some before any crops will fall.   The better flowers to move are the top half of each row. Because when crops fall from the top, they seem to open more flowers by themselves. Ideally open each section then the best place to work, seems to be the middle. Keep an eye on the very top flower, and the very bottom flower in the right corner, and the very left flower as they seem harder to open. Anything above the middle, when you make rows in the middle, can be opened by falling crops.

Level 747

Image
14 moves Requirements: 4 Poppy Flowers 165 Carrots 165 Onions And another changed back to how it was. The easiest way to complete this level is to watch those rows you are making. Do not move any of the bulls out of any of those rows. Otherwise you have to waste moves to try and get them back to where you want them. Try and make a row vertically in front of them to start with that hits as many of them as you can to get them moving. They need to all move into the first block of ice to break it, or you could use shovels to do that part. But it doesn't work if you only have 3. And not only that, once you have used your shovels to break ice, then you don't have them to make better matches later on. You need combinations and cascading crops here, because without them you won't get the points you need.

Level 746

Image
15 Moves 1 Spider 55 Strawberries 55 Suns I really wish they would make their minds up. First we had 20 moves, then they took 2 away now they have added them back again and then knocked them down to 15.   The key to success here, is to make as much grass as you can where the slime is and to try and make patches of it so that you have more room for your crops. The easy part is getting the spider, and once he is out of the way, you have more room to grow grass and get your crops. Make them cascade for extra value.

Level 764

Image
15 Moves Requirements: 80 Strawberries 80 Suns 2 Poppy Flowers 4 Sheep This level looks so simple. And for some it might be, but its all to do with the way the crops fall. You need to move the poppies out of the way to get your sheep moving. In between getting the right moves, look for higher point crops and combinations as you will need them to gather the amounts you need.

Level 763

Image
22 Moves 75 Apples 75 Carrots 10 Flowers 4 Poppies They removed snowballs and added slime. Make moves as quick as you can next to the flowers to get them out of the way so that the crops can fall on the grass and get extra points. It also makes it easier for the bulls there too. Then move the bulls down, then down again (hopefully) Like all the other levels though, it helps to have crops that fall in the right places. You need extra points on crops you do gather to be able to get enough.

Level 762

Image
23 Moves (revised) 5 more than Video Requirements: 3 Flowers 75 Apples 75 Carrots 60 Water drops At first glance this level looks quite difficult due to all the slime patches. Really though its quite a fun level. I only played it once, so it could be I was lucky, but I found plenty of seeds falling. If you want to make grass, make it near the slime patches so that they are cancelled out, and any grass you make, joins on with current grass. This gives you more chances for bigger rows, and extra points. If you start off by making rows in between the grumpy crops, while also hitting your water buckets, you will soon have enough water on the board to make flowers too as well as grass. Make the flowers close to each other if you can, so making rows will open more than one. Once you get falling crops you soon get the points you need.

Level 761

Image
20 Moves (revised) Requirements: 6 Poppy flowers 2 Sheep 175 Apples 175 Suns Although we need a lot of crops, if we plan moves carefully and use combinations its not too difficult to gather these. The problems are the bull and sheep. As regards the bulls, try and plan moves so that you can move more than one bull each time. If you were able to keep them in the columns they are in now, you could move the two middles ones down, then down again. And the same with the outer two. Just make sure that the matches above/below them don't touch any of the other bulls or you will end up with bashing heads. Look for clever moves where you could maybe move a sheep and a bull. The bull will always move first, then the sheep jumps into the spot it would anyway. The more moves you save by fulfilling this part, the more you save for your crops.
