Stuck on level 209!
I like to consider myself a pretty decent player when it comes to Bubble Mania, but I have been stuck on level 209 for months! Not enough bubbles to finish! The boosters cost too much to use! Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

(Part 1) First, get the prize bubble on the right, it is a bomb that can be useful later. Next you want to attack the bubbles right above you. This is about getting the right colors at the right time. Hopefully if you get the right colors, the easiest way to attack this part is to shoot at the area right next to the "look" bubble, or whatever it's called with the magnifying glass. Once you dropped those and have a clear shot to the firework bubbles, shoot at the firework bubbles, preferably with the same color of the babies above it (above the blower bubble). That, most of the time, will drop the blower bubble. Or, you can try and clear all the bubble on the top left so when you hit the lock on the chain, the blower bubble and surrounding bubbles will have nothing to hang onto and will drop. Anything attached to the bubbles "on and above" the chain to the very left will stay once you hit the lock. Once you have done all this, hit the lock to proceed up.
As for the second phase, I find it easiest to use that bomb you got at the beginning to get rid of that blower bubble up on the left. Shoot at that with the bomb, and make sure you hit the other prize bubble with the same shot, that is another bomb for you. (If you did not clear the bubbles to the left in the first phase, this blower bubble and prize bubble may not be visible to you, if you pay attention when the level starts, you can see where they are and shoot at them without seeing them). Next, you have to attack the area to the right to get to the lock on the lower chain. In order to clear the stuff on the right, you have to pick a color and go with it. If your next bubble to shoot is the opposite color of what you need, get rid of some of that same color of those left over bubbles on the left. Once there is only one color left in that phase, they will give you only those color bubbles. Next hit the lock on the lower chain, then the next one.

(Part 2) For the last phase, the first thing you want to do is shoot one of the blower bubbles on either side with the bomb you have if they are exposed. The one on the left us usually easiest. Once you get rid of one of the blower bubbles, you want to get to that prize bubble in the middle. You do this by only hitting one side, the other side will hold it up. So once you got that last bomb, I'll tell you what I just did. I used that bomb to clear some of the stuff in the way of the star bubble on the very top corner, I used the left side since that is the side I had already gotten rid of the blower bubble. If you get rid of the blower bubble on one side using a bomb, and use the last bomb to clear more of a path to the top corner, it shouldn't be to many more moves to clear the rest of the way to that star bubble. Once the star bubble is exposed, hit it with the same color that the babies are in the top center, that will beat the level. I got through it on my third try. You also have the option in this last phase to try and get to the light switch bubbles, hit them to light up the unlit bubbles, and then work your way to the babies through the center, but this will likely take more bubbles. It was very difficult to fully explain this level so I tried my best. You just have to keep trying. You said you did not want to purchase the extras which is understandable. When you are at the main menu before the level, you will notice in the top left a "coins" score showing how many coins you have. You earn these coins every time you play a level, they gradually build up. You will notice before you hit the play button for a level, it will show you a couple of things you can buy in the middle of the screen with your gems. However on most levels, including 209, it will give you one option to purchase an extra using the coins you have earned. On level 209, you can get 3 extra bombs with your coins, which can be a massive help on this level. Good luck!
