it seems to be for making vertical matches one after another. not sure what keeps the combo going though as sometimes it counts up and other times it doesn't.

Ah! I just nailed this and it is horrific.

You need to get vertical matches in columns where there is already some ice. It's not enough to make the matches in empty columns.

Start a new game a look for all potential vertical matches in all four pairs of columns. Let the ice rise (it doesn't have to go up very far at all) and hit the matches. That'll get you started with a 4x column. Keep going and hope you are lucky. I got over 12 today and a small part of that was getting a hypercube which made some more vertical matches for me.

This is nearly impossible to get! There is no way to get 12 vertical matches in a row in columns that have ice. Also, I feel like the controller is a hinderance. It goes so much slower than my brain/eyes. Any hints? I am getting frustrated! :mad: :mad: :mad:

If you have not done so, switch to the Blitz configuration, it is much faster once you are used to it. I got it by being lucky I think, I set off some explosions and must have gotten more than I realized. Earlier you get them the better easier too of course.

This was definitely one of the most frustrating badges to get. You have to be quick and have good jewel setups. I ended up getting x13 after I choked an an earlier x11 going to x12 and swapped the wrong jewels. Finally glad I'm done though.

i finally got it today, I was very lucky too, from the 11x combo, i got lots of cascades and the whole combo went up to 15x, earning the platinum badge. This was my last badge to get gold on it, everything else was gold or platinum already. Very happy that I am done with this game

Struggling with this one at the moment. Must have played over 100 rounds of Ice Storm and the closest I've got is x10. Oh well, I still need a fair few Hypercubes, Star gems, etc to get them to Gold standard so I'll stick with it :)
