Pepper Panic Saga Level 54 Guide With Tips
(Update 12/24/2013 – King changed the number of moves on level 54 from 17 to 21. We’ve updated the screenshots and the video but the strategy is still the same. You can read this article to see what other levels King has changed.)
Pepper Panic Saga level 54 is a destroy all the statues level that starts with 21 moves. In the beginning of the level all the statues are blocked by peppers that are frozen in ice. The board is tall and measures 6 x 4 tiles at the top, and 4 x 4 tiles at the bottom. There are no blue or yellow peppers on level 54 so there are 4 colors of peppers in play.
The combination of the ice and the low number of moves make this level difficult to beat. When the ice is in place your options for moves is very limited, and if you can’t remove the ice fast enough you will definitely run out of moves.
Pepper Panic Saga Level 54 Requirements
To pass level 54 you have to complete the following:
- Destroy all the statues (8)
Half of the statues start out the level partially damaged, and half start out undamaged. You will need to hit the partially damaged ones twice, and the undamaged 3 times in order to remove them.
Pepper Panic Saga Level 54 – Tips to Help You Finish It
In the beginning you need to free the frozen peppers from the ice as soon as possible. You don’t necessarily need to free them all, but you at least need to open up some on all 4 rows. Some of the frozen peppers are already partially freed so if you can try and explode a pepper of one of those colors since that will be faster. Before you make any moves be sure to look at which colors are frozen as this changes every time you play the level. If the board cooperates and lets you, try and focus on exploding the colors of peppers that are frozen in the ice first.
Shockwaves are essential to completing this level and you should make 4 pepper combos and “L” and “T” shaped combos every time you get the chance. Pepper panics are also important and you will have to start at least one to finish the level. 5 pepper combos in a straight line can be helpful to grow peppers after the first pepper panic and open space on the board, but 4 way combos and especially “L” and “T” shaped ones will help out more and I would pass on a straight line 5 pepper combo if I could make it into a “T” or “L” instead.
Once the ice is gone the board opens up a lot but you still have to plan your moves out if you want to destroy all 8 statues. With your extra space look for moves that will serve a dual purpose. Since we don’t have many moves each one should be as productive as possible. A move that will create a shockwave in the direction of the statues will always be the optimal choice because it will cause damage to the statues and grow peppers in its path which will get you closer to starting a pepper panic. With only 4 colors of peppers in play you are sure to have lots of options, so take your time and try to figure out which one will help you progress towards your goals the fastest.
The tips for Pepper Panic Saga Level 54 are as follows:
- Before you make your first move look at which colors of peppers are trapped in the ice.
- Try to make matches that will free the colors that are partially freed from the ice first.
- Look for 4 pepper combos and “L” and “T” shaped combos at all times and utilize them to grow peppers and cause damage with their shockwaves.
- Start a pepper panic as fast as you can.
- Once the ice has been removed take extra care choosing your moves as you will have a lot more options.
- Make moves that will serve a dual purpose such as “L” and “T” shaped combos that will both damage statues and grow peppers.
