Start the level by combining the special cancies at the center of the playing field. If done correctly you can combine a Wrapped candy with a Striped candy three times. These three combinations will significantly reduce the layers on the Honey and Candy Ice Cubes at the bottom half of the playing field.
Next, try to break the Licorice Links on both sides of the playing field. Doing this will increase the open space in which you can make special candies, making it easier to make them.
With candies of five colors on the playing field you shouldn’t have too many problems making special candies. Pay extra attention to purple candies because special candies make using will have enhanced effects.
Keep in mind that the objective is to save the Bears by clearing the Honey. You don’t have to clear all the Candy Ice Cubes at the top of the playing field. That’s why I suggest you focus on making Jelly Fishes towards the end of the level because those will dive on Bears that are still trapped.
