Tips and Tricks

Gummy Drop
  • Before starting a level, analyze what blockers need to be removed first. Bomb gummies (Z) should always take highest priority, followed by clearing stickers (A) to allow gummies to drop all the way to the bottom.
  • Line Crush and Combo boosts cannot reach across gaps in the board (B).
  • In more complex boards, items will fall through portals (C), which transport them from one section of the board to another. Line Crush boosts and Combo boosts also do not extend through these.
  • Use Lightning Bolts and Waterfall boosts to help you drop items down single columns. Shovels are also helpful in these situations, especially when the item is stuck near the bottom of the column (D).
  • Monuments will become more expensive as the game progresses, so build and upgrade resource marts early to start gathering more resources daily.
  • You only lose a life when you lose a level, so replay levels that you can win easily to earn more resources.
