Tips to Help You Beat Pepper Panic Saga Level 86
The most important thing about level 86 is the introduction of cages into the game. This new pepper trap gets in the way of damaging the statues and keeps you from completing your goals. Other than that this level plays like a lot of other statues levels where the statues are off of the main board and require some planning to destroy.
To complete level 86 you will have to use the cages to your advantage and plan and make large matches to damage the statues. As mentioned we suggest reading the cages guide first and then following our tips for this level. The statues can be destroyed in three ways: exploding peppers that are sitting next to them, firing shockwaves in their direction, and exploding the peppers that are trapped inside the cages that are placed next to them. To beat level 86 you will have to use a combination of all three techniques.
Shockwaves are the quickest way to damage statues so you should always check the board for big matches before each move. Four pepper and “L” and “T” shaped matches will be necessary to complete the level in the amount of moves you have. Exploding peppers next to the statues is also effective if you can grow one color of peppers and get them to explode before the board gets cleared out or they move. Peppers that are trapped in cages won’t get cleared after a pepper panic and will stay in place when peppers move below them, so growing these peppers is a great way to damage the statues.
The tips for Pepper Panic Saga level 86 are as follows:
- In the beginning look at what colors of peppers are trapped in the cages by the statues. If you notice there are a lot of one color try to grow those peppers.
- Matching peppers to free them from cages is fine but look for big matches to do this when possible.
- Growing the peppers in cages next to the statues in order to explode them will be much easier than trying to make matches with them. It will also cause damage to the statues when they explode.
- Use the tips you learned in level 70 and level 80 to set up shockwave matches and damage the statues.
- Once the board is cleared try to make matches with whatever color has the most peppers sitting next to statues to grow and explode them.
- Always check for chances to create shockwaves after each move since things change after every match.
- Pepper panics aren’t that helpful for destroying the statues unless they are started with a color that has a lot of peppers sitting next to the statues. Clearing the board won’t often cause indirect damage but will erase the progress you have made by growing peppers.
- There aren’t a lot of moves but don’t get discouraged if you start to run low. Like all statues levels this one can be completed quickly with the right chain of events in the last couple of moves.
