Difficulty

  • The ingredients are worth 140,000 points (14 ingredients x 10,000 points = 140,000 points), which is equal to the one-star target score.
  • An ingredient spawns every 5 moves, and up to 7 can be on-screen at any given time.
  • The candy bomb dispensers spit out up to seven 7-move candy bombs, which can be a threat.
  • One-layered ice cubes and three-layered honey limit the board space and block the ingredients from reaching the exits.
  • Furthermore, there are also three-layered chests at the bottom of the board which need to be unlocked. The keys needed to unlock the chests are hidden underneath the blockers.
  • As with any level that has candy flows, they can help or hinder you in this one.
  • The presence of seven candy colors makes it harder to create special candies and trigger cascades.

Strategy

  • Make matches under the ingredient dispensers to get rid of the ice cubes at the start and free the first key.
  • Combat the candy bombs being poured into the level by the dispenser as you clear the honey to free and collect the other keys
  • Finally, line up the cherries to the exits to collect them.
