Level 879 is the fourth level in Coco Crossroads and the 198th ingredients level. To pass this level, you must release 3 gummi dragons in 34 moves or fewer. When you complete the level, Sugar Crush is activated and will score you additional points.

Difficulty[]

  • The player has to open the sugar chests to bring down dragons.
  • Even after all the sugar chests are opened, it is hard to drop the dragons quickly.
  • There are only three teleporters that lead the dragon exits.
  • The dragons are worth 30,000 points.[1] Hence, an additional 20,000 points is required to earn one star.

Strategy[]

  • Free the keys from sugar chests as early as possible. The first key is easy to clear as it is on the teleporter at the top part of the board.
  • However, the remaining sugar chests keys are isolated from both the top and bottom part of the board. Hence you need to wisely use vertical striped candies to free the sugar chests.
  • Due to restricted space, it is somewhat hard to create special candies despite there being four colours on the board. Grab every chance to create them.
  • A colour bomb is very helpful in freeing the keys from the sugar chests as well as getting some colours off the board.
  • A coconut wheel booster switched horizontally can be used to create and detonate striped candies.
  • You will have a limited number of moves left when you have freed all the keys and all the three dragons have fallen. Use your remaining moves wisely and carefully.
  • When the dragons are above the exit, use vertical striped candies or regular matching to bring them down. A colour bomb + striped candy combination is ideal in these cases.
  • Dragons drop from the lowest section, to move them to the top, make moves in the uppermost section.

Earning More Stars[]

Difficulty[]

  • The presence of four colours makes it easy to create special candies. However, it is not that useful as the board layout is rather restricted.
  • The dragons are worth 30,000 points. Hence, an additional 90,000 points for two stars and an additional 120,000 points for three stars have to be earned through matching of candies.
  • The player is required to earn an additional 1,800 points per move[2] for two stars and an additional 2,400 points per move[3] for three stars. However, the board layout makes it difficult to create enough special candies to meet the average number of points required for two and three stars.
  • All the sugar chests directly below the dragon exits need to be opened and the candies inside them need to be cleared, reducing the number of moves for sugar crush.
  • With the board splitting into three narrow parts with the longest column being three spaces long, it is hard to create wrapped candies for the wrapped candy + striped candy combination on these parts. Even it is hard to create colour bombs.
  • With only three ingredient exits and a conveyor belt, moves have to be wasted if the dragons spawn from the wrong candy cannons or if the dragons on the conveyor belt go past the dragon exits. Even worse, the dragons can even fall into the wrong squares on the row where the dragons are if special candy combinations are incorrectly used. This can decrease the number of points earned because the player either has to waste moves to wait for the special candies to align at the correct position or has to activate individual special candies that do not give plenty of points.
  • The conveyor belt may help or hinder the creation of special candies.
  • Given the limited prospects of earning plenty of points outside sugar crush, the player must complete this level in as few moves as possible.

Trivia[]

  • The structure of the board looks like level 77.
  • This is the only ingredients level in Coco Crossroads not to have 35 moves.

  • Spawn 1 every 1 move.
  • If there are fewer than 1 sugar key on screen, then the board spawns up to 1 when possible.

Miscellaneous Info

  1. 3 dragons × 10,000 points per dragon = 30,000 points
  2. 90,000 points / 50 moves = 1,800 points per move
  3. 120,000 points / 50 moves = 2,400 points per move
