You have the option to save your final score in the leaderboard when you finish or fail a level.
Match the cards by pairing them up with an identical card through a path
Despite its name, the game’s cards are based on playing cards, so the card pairs are based on suits (spades, hearts, clubs, and diamonds) and numbers.
Cards can be paired if a path can be formed between them that does not touch other cards and has no more than 2 90 degree bends. This includes adjacent cards.
You must match suit and card value for a pair to be considered valid.
Clear all the cards in the field before the timer runs out to win the level.
Each time you clear a pair of cards, you gain a little extra time.
The game ends if you are unable to finish the game on time or run out of moves and reshuffles.
Each level has the cards behave differently as they are removed.
Some levels will have the cards drop as you remove the cards beneath them, or move up when you move the cards above them.
Some levels will have cards move up & down (depending on if you are removing tiles from the top or bottom half of the screen).
Some will have tiles move toward the left side, the right side, or approach both sides (similarly to the up and down level).
Other levels will have the cards remain stationary.
If you’re ever stuck, get a hint or shuffle the cards.
You can only use either option a maximum of 6 times per level (though your use count is restored after each stage).
Each time you finish a level, you regain 1 more of each.
You take a point penalty each time you use a shuffle or hint.
Shuffles cost 500 points.
Hints cost 100 points.
Your game score is cumulative across levels.
You gain 100 points for every pair you clear.
You also gain bonus points after clearing a level.
This is based on how much remaining time you have upon finishing, as reflected in the meter at the bottom of the screen.
Each time you match a pair the meter gains a bit more time.
This meter ranges from around 0 to 1,600.
Using hints costs you 100 points & shuffling the tiles costs you 500 points.
Begin by spotting all adjacent pairs and the pairs on the edges.
Pay attention to where the cards are falling at the start of the game.
Adjacent card pairs might suddenly separate if you clear a different pair before them.
Know which pairs to remove first to maximize your removal strategy.
If the tiles move left then it makes sense to match vertical pairs whenever you can, particularly if they are near the right side of the playing field.
If the tiles move down it makes sense to try to create horizontal pairs higher up the playing field early.
If you get stuck shuffle the tiles.
Make easy matches early
The easiest tiles to match are corner ones since you can match in both directions.
Up next are the outside tiles, as they are clear in one direction.
Center tiles are harder to match since they need to be adjacent.
Try to create a clear path in the middle of the tiles so that you have more surface area to make matches against.
The game is suited for players who celebrate Christmas or like Mahjong Connect games.
The game has no adult themed content.
