Guide for Level 36 Pepper Panic Saga with Tips
(Update 12/23/2013 – King changed level 36 by moving the statues higher on the board, you can read about what other levels have changed by clicking here.)
Level 36 of Pepper Panic is a destroy all the statues level that starts out with 30 moves. All colors of peppers are in play except for the blue ones. Which means we have 5 colors of peppers to work with.
The board is a large 8×9 tile rectangle that has 4 holes in the center. The thing that stands out the most when looking at it is the fact that the statues are surrounded by the holes. They are separated from the rest of the board and the peppers can’t get next to them. Everything we have learned about statues so far has required us to blow up peppers right next to them to cause damage and complete our goal. The fact that you won’t be able to do that at the beginning of this level is the biggest obstacle that you will face. This can get in your way and stop you from completing this level.
Level 36 Pepper Panic Saga Requirements
The level requirements for level 36 are as follows:
- Destroy all the statues (2)
Both statues start out at the beginning of the level partially damaged and require two hits to destroy. If you’re scratching your head wondering, “how do I destroy the statues when I can’t even get to them?” Don’t worry, we’ve got the tips to help you get it done.
Level 36 Pepper Panic Saga – Tips to Help You Beat It
The solution to your problem is simple. Peppers that sit diagonally next to statues cause damage to them when they explode. Take the example of the photo below. The two highlighted orange peppers will damage these statues if they explode:
(Note that the squares below the statue where the yellow peppers are in the screenshot will work to damage the statue as well. The squares above the statues are preferred because it is easier to keep those peppers in place.)
While the solution is simple, actually doing it is something else entirely. Level 36 requires the player to get technical. You will need to make moves that will get your peppers closer to where you want them to be. The good news is that once you destroy one of the statues things will change. Once the first statue is gone peppers will be able to drop into the place where it was sitting. At this point our options change, as we can now get a pepper to sit next to the remaining statue.
Since King updated this level there is a lot more room underneath the statues to make matches. Overall the level is easier but still challenging. I’ve updated this post with a new video and provided some links to the old version below. We’ve also added an additional walkthrough guide video with an audio track that takes you through our decision-making process as we beat the level.

The following tips will help you beat level 36 pepper panic saga:
- Grow peppers and move them to where they are sitting diagonally to the statues in the middle.
- Work on exploding peppers of the same color elsewhere on the board in order to grow the peppers you have positioned by the statues.
- Once you have removed one of statues change your strategy and look to create shockwaves that will directly damage the statues or grow peppers to get ready to start a pepper panic.
- Pepper panics can be very useful after the first statue is destroyed. They will create action on the board which can result in damage and clear things out.
