Scrubby Dubby Saga is a match-three game from King. In this game, you slide rows and columns of fun-shaped soaps in order to make matches and meet level objectives. Gamezebo’s Scrubby Dubby Saga Tips, Cheats and Strategies will help you stay squeaky clean.

You can make game pieces slide off one side of the screen to re-emerge on the other side

Scrubby Dubby Saga differs from most of King’s match-three games in that it forces you to think in terms of entire columns and rows instead of individual game pieces. When you want to make a match of three pieces or more, you must slide the columns or rows those game pieces belong to.

This mode of thinking may be a little alien compared to what you’re used to, but it comes with its advantages. For instance, you can slide a row or column so that a piece you need for a match exits the screen and re-emerges on the other side of the board.

This doesn’t work 100% of the time: If a game piece has boards nailed over it, the row and column it belongs to won’t budge until you make it part of a match and free it. However, movement is unhindered by most in-game objects, including character crates and metal plates.

You can combine adjacent potions at any time to make rainbow potions

If you place two potions side-by-side, you can make a powerful rainbow potion that may save your butt if you’re in a tight spot. Best of all, making these potions is as simple as moving columns and rows until the potions are side-by-side. No other matches are necessary.

Sometimes making matches of four or five same-colored pieces should take priority over the immediate task at hand

Potions capable of clearing rows and columns are created by matching four pieces of same-colored soap, and potions that clear a square area are made by matching five pieces. Regular potions can be combined to make rainbow potions.

Despite your limited amount of moves, it often pays to make potions and rainbow potions, as they’re capable of clearing multiple objectives / objects at once. This is especially true for five-piece matches, even if the pieces you’re matching up aren’t part of the stage’s objectives.

Character crates count as pieces

Many stages in Scrubby Dubby Saga challenge you to free your friends from crates. Don’t forget, these creates count as pieces, too. If two friends are trapped in yellow crates, a single yellow piece is all that’s necessary to free both of them.

This applies if the crates are side-by-side, or if they’re divided by one space that can be bridged by a single piece.

Aim to complete quests

Gold bars are precious. You need them to buy power-ups, and to continue a stage if you run out of moves.

Tap on the happy shark icon on the map screen to check out available quests, which you can complete to earn more gold bars (if you don’t want to buy them with cash money, that is).

Re-Attempt Previous Levels to Earn more Stars

Earning stars in Scrubby Dubby Saga can be tough, but they’re necessary for opening up new worlds. If you find yourself frustrated with a level, try going back to a previous one and mopping up any stars you’ve yet to earn. A small break can change your perspective and improve your performance considerably.
