Level 980 is the fifteenth and last level in Soda Swamp and the 265th ingredients level. To pass this level, you must collect 1 hazelnut and 1 cherry in 30 moves or fewer. When you complete the level, Sugar Crush is activated and will score you additional points.


Level 980 Stuck Zones

The stuck zones.

  • The marmalade must be cleared because there are ingredients underneath.
  • There are only two ingredient exits and they are directly on the path where the ingredients are.
  • The icing are located at the hard-to-clear bottoms and corners.
  • The starting board makes it hard to create special candies.
  • You only have 30 moves to free the ingredients and clear all of the icing without letting them get stuck in the stuck zones.
  • The ingredients are worth 20,000 points,[1] which is equal to the one star target score.

Strategy 1Edit

  • Clear the marmalade as quickly as possible.
  • Clear the icing using special candies. With four colours, it is quite easy to create them, despite of the awkward board shape.

Strategy 2Edit

  • Clear the icing below the ingredients first and try not to break the marmalade in the process.
  • When there is only one layer of icing at the bottom of the column, break it as well as the marmalade with a vertical striped candy or a combination of striped candy + wrapped candy.
