After you break the Licorice Link you should try to clear Candy Ice Cubes one by one rather than matching candies adjacent to Candy Ice Cubes all over the place. When you clear a Candy Ice Cube it becomes just a bit easier to make special candies which you then can use to clear Candy Ice Cubes quicker.
Throughout the level match candies as low on the playing field as possible as often as you can. Doing this will shift the largest amount of candies, hopefully start a chain reaction, clear a few frozen tiles and create new opportunities to make special candies.
With candies of five colors on the playing field you shouldn’t have too many problems making special candies. Make as many special candies as you can and when possible combine them to maximize their effects.
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.
As for the Coloring Candy at the center of the playing field. It’s great if you manage to combine it with a special candy, but as you can see in the video above, you can still easily complete the level if you just activate it. Oftentimes it’s not worth holding on to special candies just to combine ti with the Coloring candy.
