Game mode selection
Levels are sorted according to their game mode. Select a game mode to begin.
When you finish a level, you play the next one automatically.
The meter can be seen on the top center of the screen.
For some levels, the meter acts as a timer.
In other levels, the meter must be filled to clear the level.
Your score is visible on the bottom left.
The pause button is on the bottom right.
Unlike other games of its type, its fields are always rectangular.
Form rows of 3 or more decorations to clear them from the playing field.
You can only move decoration at a time..
If you remove more than 3 of the same kind of decorations in a single move, you receive a power up as a reward. These are essential to maximizing the number of points you ear in the game.
The game will show you a hint if you go too long without making a move.
If you run out of places to make valid moves, the game reshuffles the entire board.
Fill the meter at the top center of the screen to finish the level.
At the end of each level is a “Happy Moment,” which gives you a massive bonus.
This involves detonating any of the power ups that you haven’t already used by the end of the level.
The snow globe power up is the only one that isn’t used (see below).
You have neither a time limit or a move limit. Have fun!
Keep playing until you clear the level.
The meter slowly decays.
Each row you remove adds to the meter.
Keep making rows to bolster your score and keep the meter full.
Here, the meter acts as a timer. The timer measures the number of seconds you have before the bubbled decorations move upward.
Stop a specified number of bubbled decorations from ascending.
The bubbled decorations will slowly float upwards.
Don’t let the bubbled decorations reach the top of the screen.
Letting these decorations rise up might work to your advantage. They will
Again, the meter acts as a timer.
Bring down the required number of stars to clear the level.
You can swap the stars around but they can only be cleared if you bring them to the bottom of the playing field.
Like the previous two modes, the meter acts like a timer.
Remove all the ice blocks in the level to win.
To remove an ice block, form a row of decorations inside them. You may need to create multiple rows.
Unlike in our other connect-3 tile matching games that have this mode, the blocks here can take much longer to clear.
Removing a row of decorations starts off at 60 points, or about 20 points each for every decoration.
You receive an extra 40 points if you clear a row of 4, and so on.
Any new row that forms automatically after your move will increase in point value.
The row of 3 that forms after your first will be worth 48 points per decoration. The row after that will be worth 84 points per decoration, and so on.
You can get a lot of points from this, especially when you factor in things like power ups clearing large swaths of the playing field in one go
Scoring is cumulative. Your score in each level carries over to the next one.
Your high score for each game mode is visible from the mode selections screen.
Clear your high score by selecting New Game when starting a game mode. This resets the entire mode to Level 1.
The game rewards you with 3 kinds of power ups to help you with the game.
You unlock each of the power ups in-game in a different way.
4-point sparkling decorations
You receive them after clearing an L-shaped cluster of identical decorations (formed by a horizontal or vertical row that share a single decoration).
They appear in place of the decoration you moved last.
When activated, they take out an entire row and column in the playing field.
They can also explode when another similar power up is activated next to them.
6-point sparkling decorations
You unlock these when you clear a row of 4 identical decoration
These take out decorations from a 1-tile radius from their location.
You win a snow globe when you clear a row of 5 identical decorations.
If you move it, it will remove all the decorations of the type it swapped places with on the field.
To maximize its effects, choose the decoration it swaps places with carefully. Choose the most common of the decorations.
Because of the way it works, it does not activate during the Happy Moment at the end of the level.
Here is how you activate the power ups:
Sparkling decorations must align with the same type of decoration. They must form a valid row of 3 decorations to work.
Snow globes can activate with any decoration it trades places with.
The game is suited for connect 3 in a row fans of all ages.
The game has no adult themed content.
