Controls & indicators
To the right of the playing field the game shows your score and your all-time highscore.
This is a match 3 in a row game where you select blocks from birds above and throw them down into the grid below.
You can make matches vertically or horizontally, but not diagonally.
If you make a match of 4 in a row only 3 of them match.
The game ends when any of the 5 columns has more blocks in it than it can hold.
Each column can hold 9 blocks, but the tenth block covers past the ground slightly, instantly ending the game.
If the tenth block would make a vertical set of 3 in a row that set is made and you continue playing.
This game starts off easy, bordering on boring.
The difficulty of the game quickly ramps up as the birds come more frequently & the birds eventually start to drop random boxes where you do not know what is inside the box until a second or two after it lands.
Each block you match is worth 10 points, making each scoring move worth 30 points.
If you make matches with consecutive moves, that sets off a multiplier bonus where the second scoring move makes those blocks worth double points and a third scoring move makes the blocks worth triple.
Your matches can set off chain reactions, which also activate the scoring multiplier bonus.
Early in the game keep boxes sorted by color as you drop them.
Whenever you have 2 of the same color box atop a stack try not to throw anything else on that stack unless it is the same colored box.
When you start getting random [?] boxes place them in a column with no other blocks (at least until all columns have at least one block).
If the birds come fast with random boxes you can match 3 random boxes while the birds are holding them by running between two other random boxes, though this is quite hard to do.
The layout has 5 columns & there are 5 types of boxes (outside of random boxes). Whenever possible try to make each stack dedicated to a specific box type: yellow, blue, pink, green, or lightbulb.
As some columns begin to fill up, try to throw blocks into the shorter columns to extend your gameplay & only let blocks land in the most full columns if they match the color of the top block on the column.
Whenever you have 2 of the same colored box atop a stack try not to place anything on that stack unless it completes the set of 3.
The game is suited for players who like connect 3 in a row games.
The game has no adult themed content.
