Generally, we like to include 2 or 3 tricky levels in our DragonScales games. It’s the case for the “Moon Bar” level in DragonScales 1 or Level 3-12 in DragonScales 2. In DragonScales 3: Eternal Prophecy of Darkness we also have a few demanding boards. Level 9-8, for instance.
There are two tricky scales in Level 9-8 (see Image 1.) For both scales the key is to setup the required scales beforehand in order to form the match/combination exactly when the arrows are activated. To remove scale Tricky 1, first we have to place golden scales in the near tiles. When the two arrows are activated we should have already placed the golden scales we need, and the combination is done after the last of the two bottom-left arrows is activated.
For instance, in Image 2, we have already managed to place two regular golden scales near to the goal golden scale we want to remove (Tricky 1.) Images 3 to 8 only show a few of our plays to activate the arrows. But the important thing is that the 2 golden scales are already in the right place.
Regarding the scale labeled in Image 1 as Tricky 2: we have to follow a similar procedure. See Image 9. Just manage to place golden scales in the proper tiles, and then keep playing to activate the remaining arrow. See Images 9 to 11.
It’s fairly simple once you’ve figured the order in which scales should be removed. You’ll also need a bit of good luck with the scales you’ll get to play! 🙂
