Level 172: (I see the thread name's changed!) Points levels are all about the long chains of fruit (fruit chain=FC.) This level also has stumps & vines to clear (so there's room for more fruit,) but you have to get the really long FC for the big points. Try starting the level with a 7+ fruit match, or at least some good matches that will clear vines (restart/refresh the level if you don't have a good board.)

Here's some info from a previous thread about scoring high points:
Make lots of 7-fruit minimum chains (FCs) to get blasters & bombs--but even longer ones are better. Some rounds have better opportunities than others to make really long chains (for big points!)

A 7-fruit chain is worth 1200 points, but 21 fruits in a chain gives you 10,650 (over 8x the points!) See the chart in this thread (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?64535-level-68-help!) (post #4) for more points & scoring info. So it's worth making a couple small 3 or 4 fruit matches--as long as they bring same-color fruit together to make a much longer chain.

Big points also come from using special fruits together in combo, or using one to set off another of a different color. Use the shading as a guide to test which configuration or swiping direction clears the most fruit.

Good Luck! :)
