Although the objective of the level is to clear the Jellies, you should focus on something else. The first thing you have to focus on is defusing Candy Bombs. Because of their nine-move timer you don’t have too many moves to defuse them, so this task alone can be quite difficult.
The second thing you have to focus on (while defusing Candy Bombs) is first clearing the Icing at the center of the playing field followed by clearing the Icing in the first and last columns. By clearing the Icing you increase the space in which you can match candies and make special candies.
With candies of six colors on the playing field it can be troublesome to make special candies, so take your time and don’t miss out on opportunities to make special candies. Make as many special candies as you can and when possible combine them to maximize their effects.
Match candies near the bottom of the playing field as often as you can. Doing this will shift the largest amount of candies, hopefully start a chain reaction and create new opportunities to make special candies.
While matching candies at the bottom it can be easy to ignore making special candies at the top of the playing field. So pause after every move and glance at the entire playing field to see whether you can make special candies. It would be a waste to miss out on a chance to make a special candy only because you didn’t take your time.
