Juice Cubes is a brand new game published by Rovio and like all games that Rovio gets involved with, it’s extremely addictive and nice, even though it follows a good known path like most match three games do.
However, some extra tips and tricks for Juice Cubes can never be considered a bad idea, and that’s what we have here: a set of Juice Cubes cheats, tips and tricks to help you clear all the boards and get as many three star ratings as possible.
So if you want to become a pro and beat all levels in the game, here are our tips and tricks for Juice Cubes:
1. Go for matches that are as long as possible
Just like in all games of this kind, your goal should be that of matching four or more fruits in one go. The best idea is to try and match 8 fruits in a row for a special super powerful fruit that clears all the fruits of the color you’ll match it with.
2. Plan your special fruit’s location
You should keep in mind that when creating a special fruit, the last one in your match will become that special fruit.
So check out the board first and see where it would be the most useful for you to have that fruit: either nearby another special one to trigger a chain reaction, or maybe positioned in such a way that it makes it easier to destroy a hard to reach obstacle.
3. Know your special fruits
In strings of 4-7 fruit, the way you end your string determines the type of special fruit and its effect:
– If you end the string vertically (up or down): The bomb will clear the column.
– If you end the string horizontally (left or right): The bomb will clear a row.
– If you end the string diagonally: The bomb will clear the nine fruits surrounding it.
4. No continuous matches after one is made
Have in mind that unlike other similar match three games, Juice Cubes will never give you matches for fruits that drop down, so always focus on getting the highest score from your matches.
Still, it’s worth having some sort of a strategy when matching the fruits, making sure that after the drop you will get even longer matches.
5. Be as fast as possible
For a score as high as possible, do your best to complete the level with as many moves left as possible. For each unused move you get 3,000+ points, so that’s real juice there!
6. Don’t always stay away from short matches
Although it’s generally a bad idea to create strings of just three fruits, in some cases it might be the best option.
For example, when you want to clear a hard to get to obstacle or when you want to drop some fruits for a super long combo. Make sure to always look at the board and know what to expect.
7. Replay levels
Sometimes, you might simply be unlucky with the positions of the juice cubes, and sometimes replaying the level will get you the three star rating that in other cases is impossible to get. So don’t be afraid to replay levels to get what you want.
Actually, some of the more advanced levels (think 100 and above) won’t be easy to complete in just one go if you’re a free to play player, so be prepared to play them over and over again.
Some are more difficult than others and usually after a really difficult one that takes tons of tries, you will get a set of easier levels to relax more… but be prepared for some seemingly impossible levels out there!
8. Don’t shy away from that star
All you need to pass a level is reaching one star. So don’t be a perfectionist and try to get the three stars in all levels. It’s a lot more fun to simply unlock new ones and try them instead of obsessively play the same one over and over again until you master it.
Leave those levels that you haven’t mastered for later on, when you will feel like trying them again or when you’re stuck at a level and you need a break or distraction.
9. The time lapse cheat
If you run out of lives, but you want to keep on playing, there’s one easy trick to get them for free:
Force quit the game and go to your device’s settings, then set the time forward by up to 100 minutes (the amount required for a full set of lives). Then return to the game and play some more, with your new set of easily-earned lives.
10. Mix your specials
Special fruits are great, but if you want even better results, you should mix those specials in order to get truly devastating matches. This requires a bit of planning (and a lot of luck), but try to keep the special fruits for later on – when you can mix them with another special for increased effects.
And this would be it – some pretty basic stuff in the end, but that’s how we do it: nice and basic for the top score. If you have other tips and tricks to share with fellow Juice Cubes players for this amazing game, let us know by commenting below.
