Round 1level 166 #1

Starting Bubbles: 50
Special bubbles:
Obstacle Shadow Bubble Shadow Bubbles
black bubble-is-hard-as-rock Black Bubbles

Pic 166 #1:   We have a new bubble in town.. Please meet the Shadow Bubble.  See link below to read all about it.  It will help you with your game and understand  how it works.  There are 3 parts to this level, so if you have the rainbow bubble try to save a least one of them for the third part.   Clear out the bubbles to the right and left of the Shadow Bubbles in the center. Then they will move upward and not to the side. That way you have no problem with loosing bubbles and have enough to drop the ceiling

Jorge Valenzuela Melendez: Best to shoot bubbles on left and right as quickly as possible, before shadow bubbles spread, may run out of bubbles. Also try to get the gold and green spiders before pulling the bubbles to increase your score. Use very quick shots, the shadow spreads quickly.

Round 2level 166 #2

Starting Bubbles: 72
Special Bubbles:  
Obstacle Shadow Bubble Shadow Bubbles
black bubble-is-hard-as-rock Black Bubbles

Pic 166 #2:  Clear a path on the inside of each Shadow Bubble to stop them spreading. You will see a pink “V” to give you an idea of what you need to do. You then can finish clearing out each side of the Black Bubbles to get them dropped so you level 166 #2 jorgecan see the ceiling.

Jorge Valenzuela Melendez: Be careful, Shadow bubbles are very fast, drop the black bubble cluster so you can continue.  See Aiming HOT SPOT.

Round 3level 166 #3

Starting Bubbles: 82
Special Bubbles:  
Obstacle Shadow Bubble Shadow Bubbles
yellow-spider-bubble Spider Bubbles
black bubble-is-hard-as-rock Black Bubbles

Pic 166 #3:  Shoot up the center between the black bubbles to open it up. You will notice the “V” in pink to give you an idea.  Then move to a side to drop one section of the back bubbles.  Once they are cleared you then are able to bank shot and clear out the other side. At that point you can work on building up your gold and green spiders for some good points.

Sebastian Ramirez: To clear the triangle composed of black bubbles, one bubble is necessary to level 166 #3 Sebastianshoot anyone on it (see at Pic below, marked with 1°), with this. The roof goes up and increases your precision angle(2°).

Vanessa Williams  On the 3rd stage, I found it helpful to clear out the sides first then attack the shadow bubbles toward the end when the sides were all cleared out :-) I also used the Precision Charm and the Scroll Charm to see up to the top before clearing out the shadow bubbles when possible. The Scroll Charm worked wonders for me!

Editor’s tip:  When you hit shadow bubbles with a rainbow bubble, your bubbles will not spill from cauldron!

Last levels bubble witch saga
Level 166 is here, I can’t believe it!! It is finally here! Party, let’s party. Woop, woop!

These are free levels for everybody, you just need 3 friends to unlock the spell!

Here is what we now about the Shadow levels for now; The shadow Lord Levels are only five, but don’t be disappointed, they all have 3 rounds in them! You take the spiders and points earned in earlier rounds with you to the next round. When a new round begins you get a new set of bubbles int the cauldron.

Rainbow Bubbles and Charms that have a certain amount that they can be used don’t fill up when entering a new round, so one wants to save the Rainbow Bubbles and Charms to the last round, as it is the hardest round on all Shadow Levels.

Linda Johnson’s Potion recommendations for the Shadow Levels; I used rainbow bubbles and extra ceiling holes on all the levels, they’re both necessary I think. Extra bubbles was pointless as most of the levels start with 80 or more bubbles (one was over 100) in the cauldron.

Jay Taylor used rainbow bubbles, extra ceiling holes and extra bubbles on every level and succeeded.

It is good with long levels, as we need some time to get to know the new obstacles; Shadow Bubbles. You usually need to avoid bursting shadow bubbles, as The Shadow Bubbles are stealing bubbles from your cauldron. This can be taken advantage of though if you dare to try. ;-)

The remaining Bubbles in the Cauldron seem to go by a new graph, at some Shadow Lord Levels they all comes out and at some only half. It could take some time to figure out how the math goes. If we work together and pay attention and then comment on what we get on different rounds, we might get clearance on this one soon enough.
