In the final level of the Haunted Tower, we have 40 moves to defeat the Evil Bear Bandit using 18 vampire snails.
The E.B.B. returns to his usual tricky business by throwing a Gift Trap on a random object in the grid. He prefers special gifts and snails, so act accordingly. Beware though not to allow too many of these Gift Traps to pile up in the grid. At first it may not be apparent, but they will greatly delay you if they gather in numbers.
With a grid that is wide enough to unwrap plenty of special gifts, focus on doing just that with only the occasional snail here and there. Not all of the snails will leave those unreachable positions on the sides of the grid. In fact, they will alternate their landing patterns across the grid with those separated squares. Use that to your advantage, and gather as many special gifts as you can towards the bottom.
Keep an eye open for each vampire snail in the grid. They’ll move on every turn, and there will be opportunities to match them only if you are paying attention.
And if your score so far was pretty high, don’t worry about spending gems for the keys to the next world. Use them on boosters. Remember that you need 200 stars, 9 green gems or a Facebook friend who has reached the next world for you to do the same.
