Yes, you read that right, 9 moves. Note that there are only 4 colors on this board, the one you don’t need is purple. Break pieces out of the locked boxes, if you are lucky enough to get to colored candies in locked boxes next to each other, those are the first matches you want to make. 9 moves at 3 candies each will not do it, so you have to make some extras or clear room to pass this level. Also note, the candies on the screen are the ONLY candies you get, so make them work.

With only 9 moves, you have to choose moves that are going to create special candies that can be utilized to unlock as many of rest of the candies as possible.
