Although, Gummy Drop is, in essence, a puzzler in a similar vein to Candy Crush Saga and other titles, the game’s goal goes beyond simply completing those puzzles. According to developer Big Fish, your mission is to “travel the world and play architect” and to effectively “put the world map back together.” With more gummies you get more resources, and you’ll be using these resources to rebuild Australia’s Queen Victoria Building and Sydney Tower, among other Australian landmarks. And now that you know what the game is all about, we’ve got five Gummy Drop cheats that will help you be the best “architect” you could as you go through the game’s increasingly challenging missions.
1. Connect Your Game To Facebook
Not everyone likes doing this, due to the fact that many Facebook users would rather be left alone and not be pestered with game requests. But if you know many people who do play these games and don’t mind getting invites, this strategy can be very useful. Once your game is connected to Facebook, you get the chance to add more friends to help you get extra lives. The game will also give you a special bonus (e.g. free coins, free lives, etc.), making it even more worth it if you follow this tip.
2. Start Finding Matches At The Bottom
This is a basic rule for Gummy Drop and other related titles – start making matches at the bottom of the board, or close to that. This gives you a better chance of scoring combo hits and subsequently racing your way through any given level.
3. Be Wary Of The Level’s Requirements
Especially when a level has multiple requirements, you’ll want to pay attention to each and every one of them. The hardest one should be the one you work on first, and that goes too for tough spots in the corners, or anywhere else in the board – knock off the tough ones first so you can cruise through the rest of the level.
4. Power-Ups Should Be Used Judiciously
Power-ups carry a premium in Gummy Drop, which means you shouldn’t use them arbitrarily, or in situations where you don’t really need them that badly. As a rule of thumb, we discourage players from using power-ups in the first 15 to 20 levels, and with that in mind, you shouldn’t get tempted to use them during the tutorials, even when the game makes you select them.
5. Try Matching More Than Just Three Pieces
Sure, Gummy Drop is a “match three” type of mobile game, but that shouldn’t stop you from matching more than just three pieces of the same color. This would unlock a power-up (see above), and since they ordinarily cost money, you shouldn’t pass up an opportunity to match four or five pieces.
6. Getting Extra Lives Without Asking Your Friends
Lastly, we’ve got one neat little cheat for Gummy Drop players, and that’s how to get extra lives without sending a request to a friend or paying money. Quit Gummy Drop on your mobile device, go to Settings, and move the time forward by 90 minutes. Restart the game and that should give you three additional lives.
