The most important thing about this level is to keep that amount of Licorice Swirls to a minimum. The quicker you’re able to clear Licorice Swirls the easier the level will be. When given the chance always make matches that will clear multiple Licorice Swirls.
Also, match candies near the bottom of the playing field (or as low as possible) as often as you can. Doing will this shift the largest amount of candies. This in turn will hopefully start a chain reaction that will clear Licorice Swirls and create new opportunities to make special candies.
With candies of four colors on the playing field you shouldn’t have too many problems making special candies. Wrapped candies in particular are useful during this level because of their double explosion.
Since it’s easy to make special candies consider holding on to them until you can combine them. The combination’s enhanced effect will be well worth it.
