I know the board looks really complex, but in reality, the level is quite easy to play even though the layout of the board is unusual. Actually, 15 out of the 25 striped candies you need to collect are already provided on board. You just need to make 10 more, which isn’t very hard especially if you manage to get a color bomb + striped candy combination. 5 colors should help you achieve this easily, as well as some surprise candies (provided that they spawn good elements such as striped candies or color bombs). The licorice swirls could be a bit annoying, but as long as you remember the following tips and strategies, you should do well:
1. Target the free stripes using, well, stripes:
It’s quite ironic that you need to make vertical striped candies in order to free up the provided ones from their marmalade covers. Make as much vertical stripes as you can since they are also required.
2. Clear the licorice swirls:
You could use the bottom pane to your own advantage if you manage to clear out the licorice swirls. You can use adjacent combinations or even wrapped candies.
3. Get a color bomb:
The easiest way to collect all candies needed is to get a color bomb + striped candy combination, so try to get this specific special combination if you can.
4. Good luck for this level, and good luck as well for later when you spin the free booster wheel!
