Level 973 is the eighth level in Soda Swamp (Episode 66) and the 46th timed level. To pass this level, you must score at least 25,000 points within 30 seconds. When you complete the level, Sugar Crush is activated and will score you additional points.


  • The time limit given is quite short to complete the level.
  • The board has a lot of missing tiles, which increases the difficulty of making simple matches as well as that of making special candies.
  • The five squares of chocolate initially present can prove difficult to remove before they spread.
  • Six extra time candies are provided, but they are under liquorice locks, and may prove difficult to free.
  • The player is required to earn at least 840 points per second.[1][2]

Miscellaneous Info

  1. 25,000 points / 30 seconds = 833.333 points per second
  2. This is the theoretical minimum. In practice, extra time candies can be collected, decreasing the amount of points need to be earned per second as the amount of time available is increased.
