Pic 169 #1:  There is an infection on each side. You need to clear out the bubbles under the infection to stop it from growing. Then start clearing out under Dooms so you can get a shot to the bubbles above the infection so drop the sides. View the pink “V”.  Once you have cleared the side you will then be able to do bank shots to drop the dooms.  Also, please note there is an infection at the top that is growing down toward the Dooms. If that infection hits the Dooms, you will not be able to see the ceiling.  There are 3 games to this level, so if you have the rainbow bubble, try to save a least on of them for the third game.
Tips: Teresa Atkinson: Shadow bubble up center, hit it with a rainbow bubble and the shadow can’t spread.
Jorge Valenzuela Melendez: When starting, fire a rainbow bubble into center to remove shadow bubbles. Shoot straight up using “V” strategy.

Part 2
Starting Bubbles:  82level 169 p2

Pic 169 #2:  Get rid of the Shadows first.   The center infection will grow towards the side so start clearing space on both sides of center infection to stop the growth.  Pick a side to drop the infection. You then will have the opportunity to do bank shots to drop the center infection and then the side that is left.  The ceiling will appear after all three infections are dropped.
Tips: Teresa Atkinson: Try to take away the Shadow Bubbles in the lowest row fast to save your bubbles from the cauldron. Then work your way up using the V-strategy. Work your way up above one side first, because that will give you more options to get bursts, as you can do bank shots from the wall right after dropping either one of the infected clusters.

Part 3
Starting Bubbles:  97level 169 p3
Special Bubbles:

Pic 169 #3:   You need to first concentrate on the left side.  There are 3 infections that grow towards each other. The bottom grows up and the the other two above the white line will grow down.  If they all grow together you will not be able to see the ceiling and the game will be over.  Clear the bubbles out between the lower infection and both Dooms. Then move to the right and and clear out to drop the lower infection. You then can work your way up dropping the Bombs and at the point you can make bank shots.
Editor’s note:  If you use the wish/charm of antidote, try to save for last round.

Round 2 starts at 3:33 and Round 3 starts at 7:40 in this video

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.
