How to Beat Candy Crush Level 280 Help & Tips

Your first priority is to get rid of the many layers of meringue using the coconut wheels. You do not have to try to crush the meringues, as there are no jellies underneath in this level. To beat the level 280, you just have to clear the jelly that is directly visible on the board. You can get rid of the jellies in the corners by using the jellyfish. Before clearing the jellies at the corners, you have to concentrate on the jellies at the centre. Make sure you use the jellyfish late so that it can effectively clear any menacing jelly at the edges and corners. To pass level 280, you do not have to clear all the meringues. Three frozen jellyfish may assist you in this level. You must aim at the easy jellies first and then move on to the tougher ones. Combo of striped and wrapped candies can help you clear the remaining jellies.
