The upcoming animation movie The Book of Life received the match three treatment on iOS powered devices with the release of Book of Life: Sugar Smash. Unlike most movie-based titles, this one is actually pretty good and I had a great time playing it, and I am sure that you can say the same. But since it’s not easy to get all the three star ratings in the game for all levels, I have decided to come to your help and share with you some Book of Life: Sugar Smash cheats and tips for the perfect strategy guide for beginners and advanced players worldwide.
So if you’re having trouble beating a level or mastering it, read on our Book of Life: Sugar Smash tips and cheats!
Start matching at the bottom
Even if most of your level’s challenges are somewhere at the top of the screen, it’s important to start matching at the bottom. This way you can trigger combos and basically allow the level to complete itself with the help of the incoming falling sweets. Work your way from the bottom upwards and you’re already one step ahead of the game.
Solve the problem areas first
Many levels have tricky areas that you have to free up or create matches in, like corners or squares with difficult access. Focus on completing these first because otherwise you might find yourself at the end of the level with a single piece left, one that’s impossible to create a match for.
Create matches of more than three pieces
Four pieces in a row, five pieces in a row or L shapes: all these create power-up sweets and they are extremely useful in any level as they can easily turn the tides in your favor. Always look for possibilities to create these matches and if possible, save your special sweets for later, because if you can match two special sweets, you will trigger an even greater effect, sometimes sweeping out the board and offering you a huge advantage.
I know that Book of Life: Sugar Smash is a sweet game that you love to play and it seems very random and luck-based, but a bit of strategy will never hurt. Every time you start a new level, check it out, find the areas where you have to work, notice the sweets that can create longer matches and use that to your advantage. Simply matching the first sweets that you see might work for the first few levels, but pretty soon you will have to think a bit before each of your moves and make sure that you always pick the right one.
Use Power-ups carefully
You get a bunch of different power-ups and boosts in the game for free as you play and you can really get an advantage from using them, but try to resist the temptation to use them right away. As you progress through the levels, the challenges will become more and more difficult, and that’s when these power-ups come in handy. So play a level several times before deciding to finally use a power-up and only do so when you are 100% sure that you can beat that level, otherwise it’s just a waste of power-ups and, in the end, money.
Connect on Facebook
If you want to get extra lives, connecting your game on Facebook is the answer. Your friends can send you lives (and you can do the same for them), so it’s always a good idea to have a backup plan in case you run out of lives when trying to beat a difficult level.
These would be our tips and tricks for Book of Life: Sugar Smash, a surprisingly good match three game for the iPhone and iPad. Do you have other strategies that you’re putting to good use to beat a difficult level? Let us know by commenting below!
