Guide to Diamond Dash for Facebook: tips, tricks, cheats, hints, and strategies

Updated on May 8, 2011

Diamond Dash is a new puzzle game for Facebook by Wooga, which plays off of classic concepts, despite being a new game. It's a relatively simply game, in which you click on a block of 3 or more of the same color diamonds in order to clear them, and the more diamonds you clear, the more points you get. Your goal is to jump to the top of your weekly tournament chart, get the highest point total per game possible, and gain experience points, thus gaining levels and earning more and more scoring bonuses. The more levels you gain, the more points you get, the more experience points you end up with each time you play. And with my tips, you can maximize your point and experience point totals and win all of your weekly tournaments!

You earn more and more points when you clear off bigger and bigger combinations of diamonds at a time, so go for the biggest blocks of same-colored diamonds possible when you are playing each individual game. When you clear off a block of only 3 diamonds, you only earn 100 points. However, when you clear a block of 4 diamonds, you earn 400 points.


So in order to earn the most points possible, you need to clear off the biggest blocks of same colored diamonds as possible. Clearing off more than six diamonds at a time can earn you thousands of points, with each successive diamond afterwards earning you more and more points per extra diamond that you knock out.

You will also gain more experience points when you earn more points in each match you play. You only have a certain amount of lives at one time which limits the amount of experience points you can earn within a given period of time; however, you can maximize your experience points gain, and thus your level gain, by simply scoring higher on every match you play. When you gain experience levels as well, you gain extra scoring bonuses, 1 percent per extra level gain, and this goes a very long way towards helping you win the weekly tournaments with your friends.

When you string together combinations of cleared blocks, you will fill the bar at the top of the screen, and when you fill up to the top, you will earn a bonus diamond bomb which will clear out two entire rows of diamonds, one horizontally and one vertically. It will also earn you a massive quantity of points - well over 10000 points per use. You can earn many many more of them when you make multiple combinations in a row, and when you don't click on combinations of two or leas diamonds (which will send your meter tumbling back down very quickly if you click them). If you use two of these in one match, that's almost 24,000 free points. If you get three of them in one match, consider yourself an elite player at this game, as this requires some very very quick work to do.

That's all for now! More tips? Post as comments!

      I am at LV 190 with a highscore of 1.482.258. The max addition you can get is 45% in addition to your score. If you play for achievements, do most in the beginning.

      I didn't think I'd be back here after Drag Race early versions, but this is a great game, a good time klleir and a well put together application.I have only one suggestion, though. Purple monsters are random, sometimes I get a manageable number and sometimes they are downright frustrating. I would suggest the spawn rate adjusts with numbers already on screen. For example, if there are 4 already, half rate. 8, one quarter. This would likely kill/lessen the klleir spawns. Last game, I got 16 purples in a very short time. This is rare, agreed, but it can't hurt to be a little more consistent.And may I add, I have no issues with graphics. As long as items are easily recognizable, it's fine.

      I just started playing and I have DDash questions:

      1. How to choose who to send lives to -- do I send lives to all players in my list at one time, afterall it says it's free?

      2. Is it right and fair to just keep on playing to earn coins and bonus stars, instead of the game level ?

      3. To claim my reward points, I find risks in disclosing my bank card even tho it says transactions are null & void -- can i just make up the card number or use an old one maybe ?

      4. I simply want to play it clean and not violate other players, the guide that i read didn't lead to my questions. Thanks.

      I have to say that I'm really disappointed in how nothing at all happens when you reach level 100... Not only did nothing happen at level 100, but there aren't even any levels after that... It just says "More levels coming soon", so every time you play, you aren't accumulating points to level up while your friends catch up to you... And, since there's no more levels to achieve, there's no way to earn gold bars and of course, as soon as I reached level 100 was when they introduced being able to continue games for 15 seconds for 4 bars... But I can't earn anymore gold bars... Lame

      PS: My high score is 1,089,992

      Step 1) You exit Diamond Dash. (as in totally quit the app by using the multi-tasking function)

      Step 2) Then, go to FaceBook app, log out. Log into your desired account. Still in FaceBook app, launch Diamond Dash.

      I usually had to do it about 3 times before it actually refreshed to my desired account. And when I actually see my account ( sometimes it shows me at level 1), just quit the application and start the application again.

      You should get a gold bar every time u level up! A lot of times they don't give it to me and sometimes they take them away haha a bunch of glitches I assume it's just a game tho no biggie! And the coin thing really throws me too, it's weird if I want to earn a lot I always score poorly because I know I'll receive more! And ppl want to know what the gold bars r for, u use them when u unlock ur third power which is amazing may I add! And u unlock powers buy using set amount of ur first and second power... Oh and I also want to say everyone has bragging rights but scoring so higly I've found I a lot lot lot easier when u play on an iPad or a touch screen device ur scores will nearly double b/c ur not fidgeting with a mouse....jus sayin and I am guilty myself I no linger play on my desktop haha

      Only trick is try to play together with your friend and you can get huge score.

      Don't use your gold bars to gain more lifes. Save them and when you manage to release the third magic power. Those you buy with gold bars, the other two with diamonds.

      Hipster your power for bombs will unlock when you hit 40/40 this is the amount of diamonds released when you hit a consecutive amount of 3 gems in series until the progress bar in the top left fills up to create the box of fire.

      Colour Splash creates a larger block of the same colour of gems which can be exploded in one go, you will get an update for Colour Splash to download. Although the power won't unlock until you have at least 2 gold bars ( which you get 1 every time you level up )

      Sansan to sign out on iPad ( assuming its same as iphone ) you have to log out of hubby's Facebook account, then log in with your FB account !

      Correction:- looks like adding lives is infinite, just broken the 300 barrier - No more waiting for friends to forward, unless your greedy of course ;-)

    • profile image

      Chippy 5 years ago

      I have come across a way to add extra lives on the iPhone 4 App. You will have to have activated iCloud.

      Once signed into game centre and Facebook, delete DD as if you would normally, you will be prompted:-

      1st/ Delete Diamond Dash ( DD will be removed and all it's data ) click OK

      Then promted again:-

      2nd/ Remove DD from Game Center ( you will be removed from the leader boards ) this time click Keep NOT Remove.

      DD will now be removed- simply now goto APP STORE/ Updates/ Purchased/All/ Not on this phone and re-download via iCloud.

      And simply open the game Login via Facebook and hey presto!!!!!

      10 EXTRA LIVES, You can repeat this step numerous of times!

      The only down side I noticed was the first time you attempt it, it resets any Bonuses unlocked but you soon get these back and after that they remain every other attempt and won't be lost.

      The gold bars and coins remain :-)

      I have managed to repeat this to a maximum of 250 up to now.

      Another tip when getting these extra lives- sometimes it may not add an extra 10, if it does this simply play 1 live and try again.

      Other than that I have only managed a high score of 624000

      I too have unlocked the 3rd power in Diamond Dash on the PC not the iPhone. Beware it's a con to get you to buy gold bars as you only get 5 free then the rest are bought with gold bars, and up to now it looks like you have to play them straight away and not save them for when you want to play them. What a disappointment.
