|Match 3 identical tiles by swapping a pair of adjacent tiles. To swap, drag the one tile to its neighbour
or, if you prefer, click a tile and then click the adjacent one. On a tablet, touch a tile, then its neighbour or flick a tile in direction of one to swap.
Tiles will only swap if three or more match either horizontally or vertically. In the example to the right, there are four pairs of tiles that could be swapped to make matches.
|Try to match 4 tiles - example to right shows that swapping one pair will actually
create two matches of 4 tiles each.
After a 4 match, one tile will remain and become emphasized.
When this tile is subsequently matched, it will remove all tiles surrounding it.
|If you can match 5 tiles (see example to right), then one will remain after and become a "rainbow" tile.
At any time you can choose to swap this rainbow tile with an adjacent one - this results in all tiles identical to the adjacent one being removed. So there is some strategy involved in choosing which tile to swap with.
|Some levels will contain hidden bombs and/or crackers.
At the beginning of the level you will be shown briefly in which cells these are hidden. When a tile covering one of these explosives is removed, the explosive will be released and moved to the side of the grid. At any time, you can then drag the explosive onto a tile. Dropping a cracker will remove the tile it is dropped on and dropping a bomb will remove the tile and all its surrounding ones.
