What am I doin´wrong?
How does everyone think classic mode is easiest? I never really seem to get more than 100k... it always keeps telling me "no more moves"...

Any tips?

I notice that at the start of very board, there's usually a 4 gem you can make. Sometimes even a 5. Get them, but don't use those till you have no other 3 gem matches. especially the 5 gem, since they can give you a much need "More moves". Plan ahead. Start at the bottom, and see if you can make other gems you want come down to make 4, 5, or even better gem combos. I just started playing this again because when it first came out, it didn't have achievements. I know. I know. /wrist

Sigh. Just looking at your stats, I can't help feeling like I got trolled.

I start at the bottom, except if I see an opportunity to make a 4plus combo. I try and save the cubes for last resorts.

I am very sorry Kribaca, didn´t mean to... I just made it "by accident" after trying 10 hours... I was just lucky to be able to get a lot of hypercubes. Just missed to update this post...

Thanks for your help! Thanks for yours as well Robert!

was just wondering why I made those achievs much harder on first sight, like the 15 x combo in ice mode, but couldn´t even come close to 500.000 points in classic ;-)

most of it is pure luck and concentration and be able to see combinations quickly

I dont understand why you guys said to start at the bottom. Wouldnt that upset any potential matches at the top? It makes more sense to start top and work down, if you ask me.

Here's what I usually do: Match gems at the top of the board first and work your way down or make special gems. Save bottom matches as they really mix up the board if you match them. If you see an opportunity to make a hypercube (One gem away from a hypercube) but there doesn't seem to be any possibilities, keep trying without disturbing it unless you have absolutely no choice. Save the hypercubes for later and try to keep them away from flame/lightning gems. Really avoid accidentally setting them off. Also, hints are free and have no consequences so use them as much as you want. If you swap 2 hypercubes together, all gems will be destroyed for big points and I think the next batch of gems that fall will still have 2 hypercubes on them (not sure though but it works on the ipad version). That's pretty much what I do and I got up to level 22 on classic mode (I lasted for about an hour). Good luck!

Yeah, I always start at the top. If you start at the bottom than all those potential combos are lost anyways. The same isn't necessarily true for vice versa unless you get an exploding cube.

gravity summed it up very well. he put what i was gonna type except for one more strategy.

If you cant get a hyper cube, make any explosion type gem, and get it to the bottom of the screen and make it so u can set it off when ever you want. Also, once you have a hyper cube, avoid making any type of explosion gem at all costs, if you see u can make one, dont, go with the normal 3 gem clear.

I start at the bottom and work my way up.
