Our Puzzle Royale tips and tricks guide tells you how to conquer your enemies in this fun and frantic match-3 puzzle game for iPhone, iPad and Android devices. Hack your way to victory with these quick tips, direct from the Puzzle Royale developers!
Here at Recombu Towers we’re big fans of match 3 puzzle games, and Nanoo Company has helped to fuel our addiction with its latest mobile title, Puzzle Royale. This may look like your typical match 3 effort, but Puzzle Royale is similar to Puzzle Quest in that you must match up three or more symbols in order to launch attacks at your opponent – and only by defeating them with some quick-fire matching can you beat each level and progress through the game.
Here’s some tips and tricks from the Puzzle Royale devs, to help you get started.
Puzzle Royale tips and tricks: Speed and big matches are the key to victory
The aim of Puzzle Royale is simple; summon monsters by matching three or more of their face tiles within the grid, and don’t stop summoning until your opponent is defeated. Any summoned beasties will march across the top of the screen towards your enemy, taking on any rival creatures that they stumble across. It therefore goes without saying that speed is key; the more monsters you summon, the greater your chance of victory.
However, victory in each battle of Puzzle Royale isn’t just a matter of fastest finger wins. The strength of your summoned creatures is directly linked to the number of face tiles you link up. Match three tiles to summon a Normal beast, four for Super and five for Premium monsters. So don’t rush too much; see if you can shwedly drop the tiles and link up four or more at once.
Of course, you’ll first have to collect the relevant monster cards…
Puzzle Royale tips and tricks: Monster cards
In between battles you can head to the shop to grab some more monster cards, and grow your menagerie. These monsters can be upgraded with spare gold at any time from the main Puzzle Royale menu, which increases their HP and attack damage. Your monsters will also pick up additional powerful skills when they hit certain levels.
You can also collect super and premium monster cards, which deal extra damage and give you a greater chance of victory – just match four or five face tiles at once to unleash these creatures in battle.
Puzzle Royale tips and tricks: Fever Time
Fever Time is a killler move which can change the outlook of any match. If you manage to get seven match combos in a row, Fever Time will be activated, giving you an extra monster for every creature that you summon – for a limited time, of course. Speed is the key for a near-certain win.
Puzzle Royale tips and tricks: Hire mercenaries
If you’re struggling with Puzzle Royale’s battles, try hiring some mercs. Mercenaries are summoned in proportion to Hero’s level and are automatically summoned to fight at timed intervals, giving you a helping hand that can really turn the tide of a battle. Mercenaries can also be upgraded and gain fresh skills every few levels.
Puzzle Royale tips and tricks: Upgrade yourself
As well as upgrading your monsters, you can also upgrade your hero character from the main Puzzle Royale menu. There are four stats which can be boosted with the use of gold:
– Attack Damage: Increase attack levels
– HP: Increase health energy levels
– Increase Monster Summons: Increase your chance to summon a higher-level monster
– Increase Acquired Gold: Increase amount of gold gained from all battle rewards
Puzzle Royale tips and tricks: Make use of Training Battles
You can rake in some much-needed gold for upgrades by participating in Training Battles, which dish up decent rewards even if you lose. Start a training battle from the main Puzzle Royale menu screen. If you run out of ‘tickets’ to play a training match, never fear. You can restore your play tickets quickly and easily by watching a video advert.
