Puzzles & Conquest is online “Match 3” combat strategy game in which you are challenged to complete various tasks in order to increase your Might and increase your importance compared to other players. The game presents itself a mixture of puzzles and strategic confrontation.
Starting in Puzzles & Conquest
At the first stage immediately after starting the game you will find a welcome dialogue and an introductory tutorial on how to complete the puzzles. After successfully completing the introductory part you are given a Castle with a Kingdom and starting heroes (they took part in the starting scenes). The objective of your further game will be the need to develop your Castle, improve heroes and collect a powerful army.
When you join the game you are automatically taken to the “Kingdom” indicated by the Kingdom number (for example K72). You are simply known as “Lord” and are given a generated “name” and a standard bearded young man’s avatar with a crown. The generated name consists of your kingdom number with a string of 10 alphanumeric characters (for example K72-4a5862b90).
At the initial stage of the game you are led by a charming Heroine. This is a learning challenge where you will be given time to learn new environment and game mechanics. When you get to the Castle you can change your character name and avatar (standard and purchased).
Although there are many Kingdoms you will only compete with other players within your Kingdom. The basis of the game is your kingdom is invaded by monsters that you have to fight and kill. You are also invited to fight other players in your Kingdom.
The main resources in the game are: food, wood, iron, gold, diamonds and soulstones. With the help of resources you will develop your buildings and army and you will also be able to level up heroes and start their evolution.
You have access to both the Kingdom map which displays the Castle and all buildings and the World Map which shows the location of other players, allows you to form an Alliance and hunt monsters. Also the World Map allows the Lord to send an army to wild Farms and Lamber Camps to collect strategic resources in the game Puzzles & Conquest.
A new Kingdom appears every two weeks. On your home and world map, you can: extract resources, attack other Castles, rob other people’s troops, strengthen your allies, kill monsters. As part of a group you can organize or join the attack on the Hell Fortress or attack on enemy.
From the World Map mode you can also switch to a bird’s-eye view of the entire Kingdom. The map shows the Kingdom is actually located in concentric rectangles known as “ranges,” with the outermost range having the least resources and the innermost range having the most resources. In the center is Draconia where the leader of the kingdom (if any) resides.
