Exhaustive research at KF World HQ by our dedicated staff have yielded the following nuggets of Fusion Block/Energy Orb wisdom:
1. Try to build 3×3 Fusion Blocks, as these will clear all like-colored Energy Orbs. Tip: Try to build 3×3s of different colors on opposite sides of the screen. And use your holding bin.
2. Pile big, continuous groups of like-colored orbs as high as you can. “Continuous” is the key word here. Leave an easy place to drop a Fusion Block. This is a good way to unleash unexpected chains and combos.
Don’t get cute. Keep your stacks low. Towering columns leave you extremely vulnerable if your opponent raises your stack.
1. In 3-minute mode, you have time to build up elaborate combos and chains.
2. In 1-minute, move aggressively, as you have to make the most of what’s dealt you.
Either way, you can squeeze out a few extra combos with astute use of your holding bin. Have fun!
