Feline Heroes to the Rescue
If you have ever played games like Jewel Pop: Treasure Island or Hotel Blast, then you will love Cat Heroes: Puzzle Adventure. In this creation from gaming developer Cratoonz, the forest is under a rodent invasion. Although there are many ways to skin a rat, the best experts for the job would be none other than the Cat Heroes. You will join them in protecting the forest by solving puzzles to defeat the enemy.
As you make progress, you will unlock Max, Lucy, Scottish, and other cute cats that all come with a unique ability. The best part is that this game does not require an Internet connection. So, you can play it at any time without being interrupted by annoying ads.
Endless Puzzle Match Challenges
When working on puzzles, you tap on similar pieces. That will cause them to merge into one power-up. For example, you will get a firework after matching three puzzle pieces.
Fireworks hit the rats and reduce their health. If the rodents’ HP drops to zero, they get eliminated from the game. You have to eliminate all the rats to finish the level.
In each level, you also have a finite number of moves. As a result, you have to be strategic and leverage the use of boosters/power-ups. The game will challenge you to think ahead by visualizing what plays can trigger chain reactions that will help you to reach your goal faster.
Increasing Dif ficulty
The rats come with increasingly higher HP as you advance in the game. Therefore, you can expect levels to get harder and harder. It is something worth looking forward to, especially when you consider that the gameplay gets repetitive over time.
Higher levels also evolve in other ways. For instance, you will reach challenges that introduce new elements like freeing birds trapped in cages, bursting bubbles that unleash fireflies, or collecting bananas for a gargantuan that gifts you with fireworks. As the freed insects and birds escape, they attack the rat enemies to deal damage. Other levels even feature more than one puzzle board.
Tips & Tricks for Playing Cats Heroes: Puzzle Adventure on PC
• Swap Pieces
Another way to get a firework is by swapping items to match four identical ones. Instead of tapping/clicking on threes, use this move often because it creates room for more pieces to drop into the puzzle grid.
• Build Up Energy
Whenever you launch a firework, you build up energy represented by the circle gauge icon at the top of your screen that encloses the portrait of your chosen cat hero. It fills up gradually. Af full energy, you can claw one rat to eliminate it or inflict damage without using up your moves. Therefore, try as much as possible to create fireworks with every play you make, and use these boosters often to build up energy.
• Complete Daily Quests
Daily quests unlock once you reach certain levels in the game. They usually appear after solving each puzzle. Once the daily quests become available, make sure to take part and earn extra rewards.
• Use Boosters
Tapping on at least three puzzle items will form a firework. But, there are different kinds of this power-up. For example, creating an L or T-shape with matching puzzle pieces will produce a triple firework. It is quite useful, capable of hitting three rats simultaneously.
Besides fireworks, there are other boosters in the game that you can use. For example, matching five puzzle items creates the disco ball. Drag this little bad boy to any adjacent spot, and it will unleash a barrage of lightning bolts to remove all pieces of the same color as the swapped one from the grid.
There is a hammer as well that smashes single tiles on the grid.
• Take Advantage of Booster Combos
When you have a disco ball and fireworks next to each other, you will be in for a spectacular show. These two power-ups will augment each other. Tap the combination, and the disco ball lightning bolts will plant firework rockets all over the grid that go off at once. For levels that have many rats with high HP, this move will come in handy at knocking out the enemies or reducing their health quickly in one fell swoop.
If you manage to have two disco balls next to each other, this will trigger an explosion that clears the grid and reduce health for all rats by 2 points. You can use this move to remove obstacles like crates and make room for more puzzle pieces.
• Complete Each Leve With 3 Stars
Try to solve each puzzle with as few moves as possible. Doing so will allow you to earn three stars at the end of the level. Once the star score accumulates to a certain amount, you will be able to open chests and unlock new heroes along with their stickers.
