Pepper Panic Saga Level 98 Guide with Tips
Pepper Panic Saga level 98 is a complete orders level that starts with 40 moves. The board is a medium sized rectangle that measures 6 tiles by 8 tiles. There are no obstructions or holes on level 98, and there are five colors of peppers in play.
While at first glance nothing looks unusual or difficult about level 98, we have to say that it is one of our least favorite levels. In fact, we will go as far as saying something that we have never said about any other level – we HATE level 98. We will rant more about that later, for now let’s try to keep things positive. One thing that you have going for you in this level is that it is one of the levels King changed, so it will be slightly less annoying for those of you who are playing it for the first time.
Pepper Panic Saga Level 98 Requirements
To finish level 98 you have to complete the following orders:
- Collect 85 red peppers
- Collect 85 yellow peppers
- Collect 85 blue peppers
Note that this just requires matching that number of each pepper, not exploding them.
Pepper Panic Saga Level 98 – Tips to Help You Beat It
Okay, since the strategy is fairly simple on this level, we have to rant a little before giving you our tips. Don’t get us wrong, we love challenging levels in Pepper Panic Saga. The tough levels like level 59, level 68, level 80, and level 89 are the ones that keep us coming back for more. Level 98 is a different kind of challenging that is just plain annoying to us. In the other levels we mentioned it was always clear what we needed to do. It was hard to do it, but we knew what we were working towards. In level 98 it seems that no matter what strategy you apply you just end up coming up short time and time again. The goal is to complete the orders, but the results of trying different ways of doing that seemed to be all over the board. In the end you will eventually finish it, but you might find yourself wondering what you did differently that time and why it made a difference. So that is why we don’t like this level and we hope you are lucky enough to get past it quickly so that you never get the chance to become as frustrated with it as we did.
In order to complete this level you just have to hang in there and make the best available moves. It is simple and obvious but it doesn’t work out very often. We tried several strategies in playing this level and none of them stood out as the optimal way to play it. Instead we suggest keeping it simple and just starting as many pepper panics as possible regardless of the color you have to use to do so. You should look for moves that will collect a lot of peppers for your orders and ones that will set up multiple matches at the same time, but just concentrating on the colors for the orders never got us very far. Remember, while the board is a good size, it is extremely difficult to start chain reactions that lead to pepper panics. They often fizzle out before they reach the tenth explosion, and you need to start panics in order to get some help from the cascade that happens afterwards.
Matches that combine more than three peppers at a time are essential in level 98. If you do the math really quickly you’ll realize that you have to collect 255 peppers in 40 moves. That comes out to be almost six and a half peppers for each move that you have. If you only matched 3 peppers at a time and never started a pepper panic which essentially gives you free moves while the chain reaction is going on, you would only be able to collect 120 peppers. The extra matches that happen during the chain reaction and the cascade that comes after a pepper panic are absolutely necessary if you want to beat level 98.
The tips for Pepper Panic Saga Level 98 are as follows:
- Forget most of what you know about strategy and make productive matches regardless of the pepper’s color.
- Take your time and try to find moves that will cause more matches to happen when the peppers are removed.
- Look for matches of more than three peppers and make them right away.
- Don’t get too caught up in the remaining orders, just focus on moves that will create action and clear peppers.
- You need to start pepper panics often to get the additional matches during the chain reaction and in the cascade that comes after.
- If there aren’t any good matches available work from the bottom of the board in hopes that more matches will occur above when the peppers are removed and things fall into place.
- Don’t give up. Lots of players have passed this level and you can too.
