  • You can win this level instantly if you combine colour bomb + colour bomb.
  • As it is quite difficult to create colour bombs, much less two adjacent to one another, vertical striped candies are the main way to approach this level. The striped + wrapped candy combination is beneficial if the opportunity arises.
  • Try to build up an arsenal of different striped candies, in order to launch an attack all at once and leave a big open gap in the swirls, through which to hit the dragons.
  • Try to make vertical moves, so that any striped candies created in cascades will be vertically striped.
  • When possible, detonate/match a vertical striped candy in a configuration that will leave another striped candy behind.
  • Remember that candies striped in the same direction must be spaced at least two squares apart to retain distinct effects. Otherwise, detonation will bear the effect of only one striped candy. Nonetheless, adjacent striped candies are always useful as they can detonate each other when a colour match is not available.

Booster Option[]

  • Starting the level with the coconut wheel booster, and combining it with a vertical striped candy may improve chances of success.

Earning More Stars[]

  • The dragons are worth 40,000 points. Hence, an additional 35,000 points are needed for two stars, and 60,000 points are needed for three stars. To achieve these target scores, try making as many combos as possible. Regular matches seldom result in cascades on this level.
