Scrubby Dubby Saga Tips and Tricks
If you want to get involved with King's latest, try out this guide for size!
Scrubby Dubby Saga is King, the creator of Candy Crush's, latest match-3 game that basically takes on the very same form as the rest of the King titles. Instead of matching candies, jewels, or even animals this time, you have to match several different colorful soaps. There's also a twist where you have to slide lines in a pretty unfamiliar way, so if you've played a whole lot of puzzlers in the past, this one might feel a little different. Check out these tips and tricks to help you up the game (and not drop the soap!)
Make a mental note of how the soaps slide on the board
Scrubby Dubby Saga is all about the soaps, and thus the game pieces behave accordingly. They act just like you'd espect, so you have to actually slide columns left and right in order to make matches. This is a lot different than the regular, simplistic touch-and-drag gameplay you may be used to, but if you want to make any progress you'll have to get acclimated quickly. You'll have to ditch individualistic thinking and slide entire columns. Of course, you can't always do this until you've freed certain pieces. But starting off it's good to acclimate yourself to the radically different gameplay. This way you'll come up with new play strategies when you're feeling stuck.
Finish side quests when they pop up
This King game, of course, runs off of microtransactions, and if you happen to have no moves left in a level, you'll need gold bars to buy more. You also need them for power-ups. Checking out the shark on the map screen will give you a list of missions you can complete in exchange for gold bars, which you can either buy with real money or get by completing extra tasks. It's a lot cheaper, and you'll end up getting to play a little longer if you can do what the shark asks of you.
Go back in time
Just because you've completed a level, that doesn't mean you have to leave it be for the rest of your life. You can actually go behind and redo the levels you've already seen before, so go back and replay them to earn more stars. That way you get more practice in and additional boons for getting a higher star rating. And that's always something you can use in these types of games.
Save those power-ups
You'll be awarded a finite amount of power-ups when you first start the game as part of the tutorial level. Don't use them all willy-nilly! You should indeed save them for future levels, because the tutorials are where you're just starting out. Hoard them like nobody's business. They're going to get expensive later.
