The biggest problem with clouds is that you’re never going to get them to show up when you need them to. There’s often a level limit on clouds, and if you have clouds on the left then you’ll need to clear dots on the right to get more.
Clouds can be destroyed with erasers, bombs, gem blasts, or other cloud zaps. However, the primary way to clear clouds is to put two of them on the same row — the moment there are two (or more) clouds on the same row, they’ll zap themselves out of existence.
A cloud zap will hit slime, ice, balls, or beetles one time, no matter how many clouds you clear on a single row. One zap will also clear an anchor or all the background from cloud to cloud.
Clearing clouds is all about making sure you get enough of them to meet the goal. It’s much easier if you do this at the top of the screen than at the bottom. However, if you have other goals to meet, you’ll have to decide what’s most difficult — and this may take a few tries.
Remember to balance your clouds on the left and right sides so that you don’t waste moves generating them.

It’s for anyone who thinks they know real story of the Super Mario Brothers. A trip to 1970s New York will show you just how wrong you are.
