  • The orders are worth 41,000 points (100 orange candies x 1,000 points per orange candy + 31 licorice swirls x 1,000 points per licorice swirl = 41,000 points). Therefore, an additional 4,000 points is required to reach the one-star target score.
  • 25 licorice swirls are already present on screen, and six more will need to be spawned.
  • Board space in the beginning is very tight, but fortunately, there is a twist in this level that makes it not so hard. (See the Notes section for details.)
  • The presence of five candy colors makes it easier to create special candies and trigger cascades.


  • Start at the top and work your way down to open the board.
  • Just focus on the licorice swirls for the most part, the orange candies will come naturally. 
  • Once there are only a few licorice swirls left, then you can start worrying about collecting enough orange candies.
  • Collect every single licorice swirl that spawns, preferably as soon as you can. You'll need them all.


  • 1 licorice swirl spawns every 5 moves.
  • The candies with red dots are fixed.
