remember your goal is to get the required fruit down ... so
focus on that, if you can get a vertical striped candy
above/below one and blast it, it'll drop to the bottom quickly
(naturally use other specials / combos too).
once you remove one the next will drop into the play-board
after your next swap ... so make your next move in an "easy"
column (ie NOT one with cream in it / perhaps with a vert
line-of-three ready to take etc). It's very easy to make good
plays, but nowhere near the required fruit, so don't get
distracted ... just make plays which move the fruit down!
