Difficulty

  • The order is worth 9,000 points (9 bubblegum squares x 1,000 points per bubblegum square = 9,000 points). Therefore, an additional 1,000 points is required to reach the one-star target score.
  • Bubblegum is introduced here. When a move is made that does not clear bubblegum, either a new piece of bubblegum will spread or a lock will appear. Essentially, it behaves the same way as it does in Candy Crush Soda Saga.
  • Like in other Candy Order levels with spreadable blockers, the player does not need to collect every piece of bubblegum that appears, only enough to fill the order.
  • The bubblegum is surrounded by two-layered honey, meaning that directly matching on the bubblegum is impossible at the beginning of the level. 
  • However, if the bubblegum spreads under the honey and then to the sides of the board, this level becomes easier.
  • The presence of six candy colors makes it harder to create special candies and trigger cascades.


Strategy

  • You have a choice in this level: Either let the bubblegum slip under the honey or to clear it as soon as possible using special candies. Do whichever way works best for you.
