Level 196 sure looks harmless the first time you see it, but you’d be surprised by the sheer mass of licorice swirls that would be swooping down on your board any time soon. It’s a good sign that wrapped candies are given for free next to locked up candies, making them easier to release, and making each column a possible exit point for ingredients. That being said, this level is an easy one with slight challenges coming from the licorice swirls. If you get lucky, you will be able to clear the level in one try; just remember the following tips and strategies:
1. Make wrapped candies:
This is your best antidote to the lot of licorice swirls that limit your board and even makes you waste moves than is required.
2. Focus on the columns that do contain the ingredients:
Don’t lose track of where your ingredients are located at all times. You might be clearing off licorice swirls unnecessarily if you just make moves anywhere. Keep track of your ingredients and only make moves on columns where they are located.
3. Optimize special candies:
Quickly detonate the ones given for free to release locked up jellies and strive to get more.Vertical stripes are fine as long as they will hit the ingredient first before it hits the licorice.
4. Have fun bringing down ingredients, but remember to pick up your daily free booster!
