Gameloft is adding another vibrantly colorful match 3 style game to its portfolio of titles today with Puzzle Pets. The title brings a cute and cuddly approach to the match 3 genre of gameplay with a flurry of frogs, octopus, fox’s, bunnies and more. As one would expect, you match 3 or more pet heads to make a match. Get 4 or more in a line or a ‘T’ and you get a power-up egg. Match the egg and it clears things out based on the egg stripes. For instance, match 4 and the egg is a vertical or horizontal line indicating the row it will clear out. Match a ‘T’ and it makes an ‘X’ and clears things out in the shape of an X. There is also a rainbow egg that lets you match it to any pets and it wipes those pets off the screen. Not to mention a slew of other combos that Gameloft teaches you in the first few levels of gameplay.
As you progress you get power-ups to move you along through the various levels, there are 7 total that include a Tornado and a Chameleons tongue. You finish off each of the 7 area with a typical boss battle that culminates the end of each. Each area is themed accordingly from snowy mountains to lush forests. Â Each level gets more and more complex making it challenging but colorful. Gameloft also added in a community element that lets you join in-game events to unlock precious rewards, like extra cool and rare helpers for your boss battles.
Puzzle Pets is a typical free-to-play title with a certain amount of optional in-app purchases to pick up coins for power-ups and lives. Nothing we haven’t seen before in other similar titles from Gameloft and other game studios. Feel free to pick it up and give it a run. It is quite colorful and characters are pretty cute.
