Pet Rescue Saga Level 496
Target: Save 4 pets
This is one of those level that a lot depends on the paint cans you randomly get.
Try to use the first paint cans you have in this level to both gain points (to build up your hammer booster) and to drop the block level to a more even, workable board.
Use the first hammer you get to even things up so you can make matches.
Keep at least one balloon to use for freeing the pets from their carriers in the bottom row.
Try to also get a paint can (or two) down as low as you can to help remove un-matching blocks.
If you can get the springs (line blasters) down as well and get them to the final rows to clear them.
