New areas will become available right after you have restored the previous location. Once you have restored the bakery, you will be able to unlock the rundown Ice cream shop.
The rate of difficulty in this game will drastically increase as you progress. Puzzles will become more and more challenging and you will encounter various obstacles and items which could either help or harm you in the process.

You obtain power-ups matching five or more tiles of the same color. Rocket Popsicles allow you to clear an entire column or row of blocks while Lava Cake can clear a carnage of blocks around it. Sprinkles, on the other hand, can clear all blocks or tiles of the same color. Amazingly, you can also merge the two adjacent power-ups for a more powerful effect.
Boosters are the consumable items that you can obtain in many ways. You can get extra boosters by completing chapters and you can also get some through daily login bonus. Boosters can also be purchased via the game’s virtual currency.
