Difficulty

  • The player is required to score 380 points per second (30,000 points / 80 seconds = 375 points per second).
  • The licorice swirls and locks can take up a lot of space, making it more difficult to get the target score.
  • While the toffee tornado can help you clear some of these blockers, it can also restrict the use of certain spaces on the board for two moves. This can be a disadvantage.
  • Six colors makes it more difficult to create special candies and trigger cascades.

Strategy

  • Simply remove the licorice swirls to open up space, and then create and combine as many special candies as you possibly can to reach the target score.


Past Version

  • This level used to be much harder, originally. The target scores were 85,000, 125,000, and 150,000 in the first version. The old difficulty was Very Hard.
