There are three Boosters that can help in tricky situations.

Strike One allows you to remove or damage Candies and other objects without using a move.Just tap where you want the lightning to strike!
Star Shower removes or damages Candies and other objects in a circular area. Just tap where you want to conjure up these falling stars.
Clean Sweep brings some order to proceedings and arranges all the Candies by color. Great for collecting lots of Candies and set up for creating the largest Bombs.
