3 stars: 165000 points

Removing the main portion of the double jelly almost everywhere on the board isn’t the most difficult part, its’s the 3 pieces covered with double hit blocks on the bottom row in the left, center, and middle that prove difficult. There are some 3 and 4 hit blocks that block of 1 of the 3 jellyfish available to you to, so try to make a color bomb and mix it with a striped candy to clean out a lot of the candy to get a good headstart here.

Patricia Frederick’s Tips for Candy Crush Level 285

Since this is a jelly level, try striped/wrapped combos to clear it out before releasing that center jellyfish. If you can match the center jellyfish with a striped or wrapped candy, you make it a lot more potent.

    I call color bombs donuts.. I like that better


      Lol, each to their own Donald – as long as you use them in the correct way then it doesn’t matter what you call them :)

    Here is how I did it:

    1. Restart the Game till I get a Wrapped/Striped combination on the get go. This will tackle the three buttom blocks once.

    2. Get rid of a lot of jelly. By the time the center fish fired up it hit two of the three blocks. (It’s luck though)

    3. Could land another wrapped candy to hit the middle block.

    4. Only six more hits to win. Two fish left… Easy


      Thanks for the tip Scoopy :)

    Whew finally passed. That was a tough one. :)


      Well done!

    I don’t see recent comments on this topic but the question was never answered about not clearing the bottom 3 pieces. My iOS and Facebook require the bottom 3 to be cleared. Otherwise it makes no sense for it to be so easy. This is a difficult one for sure. I know my strategy is to form stripe/ wrapped combo as close to the bottom row as possible in addition to creating as many other combos as possible but easier said than done.


      Crushers, Kami, a good crusher that has contributed so many times here needs help.. we need to support him (will also contact Pat and come back)!

    Hi I’ve just tried doing this a few different ways and have come to a problem. I tried doing it the same as the walk through and left the blocks the same as yours and I didn’t pass. Then I tried clearing all the jelly blocks with bombs and was left with 1 clear block at the end needless to say I didn’t pass.
    My question is does ALL the jelly have to be removed? Why are your blocks still on the board but you got a sugar crush? Does only the centre jelly have to be done and leave the bottom and corners intact? Please help.

    Stuck for a day in this level, clear all the jelly. Use the 2 fishes(there are 3 fishesin this board) to clear double jelly under the blocks in left-center-right. Good luck!


      once more thanks for your tips!

    Don’t understand the walkthrough video – the bottom 3 blocks aren’t cleared?

    • Team

      did you also try to utilize our strategy?

      • jeanvic

        You did not answer the question about your video – why are the bottom 3 blocks NOT cleared in the video, yet you pass the level?


          Hey again Jean

          The request in order to pass the level is to remove all jelly, not to clear the bottom 3 blocks!

          • LLinFL

            I beg to differ!!! The bottom 3 blocks need to be cleared & I’ve tried all the tips and find there’s NO WAY to do this!!!
            I may clear one but I see no way to clear all 3!
            Is it different on PC??


            Some levels seem to work better on the PC and vice versa, so give it a try and see what happens :)

    you said pc version is diff from ios/android, i don’t understand, i’m playing this level on my pc but still need to clear the bottom three jellies

  10. Debbie

    If I download candy crush on my desktop will I lose my place? I’m also stuck on level 285. Errrrrrr.

    • candy

      you need to first connect your iOS (or android) with fb for your progress to be tracked down

    I’ve been stuck on level 285 for a couple of days! I just watched the walk through video and I’m really confused. Why don’t my Jelly Fish go to the bottom jelly where the bricks are like in the walk through video?

    • cambria

      I’m stuck for a couple of weeks too on this level. On my Iphone, the fish won’t go to the lower bricks, on my laptop, they will!!!

      But what I don’t get, is that I saw on the youtube films that you don’t have to clear these bricks. You just have to clear them untill they are completely brown! I cleared 1 brick completely and the other two where white and still I didn’t clear this level????? It’s driving me crazy… Candy Crazy instead of Candy crush.

        Again the PC Version is different from the iPhone one :/
