Gummy Drop’s features-filled and exciting gameplay is hard to deny, but like all free-to-play games, difficult levels can make the game frustrating. This Gummy Drop tips and tricks guide contains some of the most crucial strategies that will help you progress through the game at a faster pace than ever before.
7 Useful Tips on How to Play and Master Gummy Drop
Match from the bottom
One of the most simple Gummy Drop tips, yet somehow often forgotten is that it is incredibly useful to start matching from the bottom. No matter what the goals of the level are, it is almost always useful to find matches near the bottom of the board. This allows all the gummies above to cascade and score you combos. Moves are precious in this game so this is an easy way to maximize each of your moves!
Combine more than three
Like most Match 3 games, Gummy Drop rewards you with special gummies if you are able to match more than three. Matching four gummies produces line crush and matching five gummies produces either bomb or color lightning bolt depends on the configuration. On advanced levels, aiming to match more than three is a good practice and helps make the levels much easier.
Note the level goals
Gummy Drop has a variety of level goals are different level by level. At the beginning of each new level, it is important to note these goals as they help inform your strategy for that particular level. For example, if the goal is to achieve a certain amount of points, your strategy should be to make as many more-than-three matches as possible. If the goal is to clear white tiles, then you should aim to make matches on or near those spaces. If the goal is to drop items to the bottom of the board, it is best to try and create vertical line crushes.
Be careful of boosters and power-ups
Each Match 3 game is unique and boosters function differently. It is crucial to note the specific properties of these boosters in order to utilize their full benefits. The line crush in this game does not extend past obstacles, which might be different from what you are used to in other games of this format.

Complete missions and participate in events
Along with the main levels, there are also missions to be completed on the side. You can click on the exclamation mark on the right of the screen to reveal the list of missions currently offered. Sometimes these are locals asking for special items, other times are limited-time missions – no matter the mission type, they always reward you with generous resources required to build monuments as well as extra perks.
Gummy Drop also regularly hosts themed events and challenges to add some variety to the gameplay. These events are highly creative and most importantly, super fun to participate in. Some of my personal favorite events and challenges include Gummy Golf, Sand Castle Challenge, and most of the seasonal events. By participating, you have the chance to win awesome boosters and unlimited hearts!
Build monuments and resource marts
Monuments are required to advance through Gummy Drop. In order to build them, you need a certain amount of resources, which can be earned simply by completing the levels. Each finished monument building will unlock 10 more levels, so you cannot get away with not building monuments if you want to progress in the game.
If you need more resources, you can either replay the levels or build resource marts. Resource marts are super helpful as they constantly reward you with important resources. It is also a good idea to keep stockpiling resources even if you already have enough of them because you can send them to other cities in the future.
Connect with friends
If you play Gummy Drop on mobile, you can connect your game account with your Facebook account. This opens you up to multiple benefits. Firstly, with a connected account, you can always restore your game progress in case a bug in the update causes you to lose your hard-earned saved progress. moreover, you can connect with your Facebook friends who are already active on Gummy Drop, compete with their scores, as well as send and request help with lives and resources.
