The Red Giant special clears letters from the board around the activated special. Points are scored for each letter scored.
Like it’s natural counterparts, the Red Giant special swells when activated, clearing letters as it goes.
Red Giant specials are very useful for clearing large blocks of cells, and since you’re awarded points for every cell cleared, don’t hesitate to use them!
Hint: To maximize your points: once you’ve spelled a word over a Red Giant special, quickly drop letters to fill whatever empty blocks may be remaining in the 20 cells to be cleared before the string pass is complete.
