Unlike mosts other levels, use the jelly fish as early as you can to break a hole in the licorice swirl barrier, then work from the inside of the pyramid whenever you get a chance. Look up top for match-4 and match-5s, but focus most of your play down the bottom once you’ve broken your way down there.
The licorice locked candy doesn’t have jelly underneath, so doesn’t necessarily need to be taken out, although crushing through will give you more room to make special candy. Use your fish whenever you can, and combine them with special candy whenever possible to crush your way through this level.
• In this level the jelly is underneath the licorice swirls.
• Do not clear all the licorice X’s.
• They do not have jelly underneath them so you would be wasting moves clearing them all.
• Make a whole and try to get into the middle of the pyramid.
• Try to make wrapped candies to really help you burst through the licorice.
• Don’t waste moves.
