Match three to save the land in Empires & Puzzles for iOS

Published On March 2, 2017 | By Kirk Hiner | iPhone/iPad

Never before has matching three similar objects been so important. Finnish developer Small Giant Games has today released Empires & Puzzles, a mobile RPG that combines tactical match-3 puzzle battles with stronghold construction and defense. Available for iOS and Android mobile devices, “… Empires & Puzzles offers players an engrossing gameplay experience to share with other players across the world.”

Empires & PuzzlesIf you’re used to watching people match objects in Candy Crush Saga or any myriad Disney tie-ins and wondering, “What’s the point?”—well, Empires & Puzzles provides that point. You’ll need to solve RPG match-3 puzzles to summon heroes, acquire magic skills, and smite your enemies. To save your stronghold and the lands of Karemdol from the Dark Lord’s army of evil, you will battle dragons, titans, goblins, wraiths and dozens of other mythical creatures. But you won’t be alone; alliances formed with other players will be key to leading your heroes to victory.

And then you’ll want to fight them in the PvP arena, as is custom.

Players new to the genre can start by battling their way through an epic story, one puzzle at a time. More experienced players can engage in fast-paced online battles and co-operative Titan battles. All battles and quests provide the player with resources used to build and upgrade a mighty mountaintop fortress. The rich experience is made even more rewarding with gorgeous art and hundreds of heroes to collect and upgrade.

Empires & Puzzles is now available for free at the iTunes App Store, but not without your usual options for IAPs. There’s even a $4.99/month subscription that allows you to build or upgrade two buildings at the same time.
