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.
