Rome Puzzle

Game Description: Create matches of three or more in a row by clicking on adjacent tiles to swap them. Use your gold to buy buildings and build the ancient city of Rome!

How to Play Rome Puzzle: Rome Puzzle has a lot of different elements to it and I am not going to attempt to try to explain them all here. It isn't important, or necessary, for you to know every detail. I am just going to go over the important points you need to know.

  • Click on adjacent tiles to swap them and create matches of three or more identical tiles in a row.
  • Some tiles have locks on them. You must unlock these tiles by using them in a match of three or more.
  • Complete each level by turning all tiles to gold before time runs out.
  • You have three lives.
  • If you fail to complete a level before time runs out you lose a life and you will have to repeat the level until you complete it successfully.
  • Use the gold you earn to buy buildings for your city. The Buy buttons are located at the bottom of the game screen.
  • This free demo version of Rome Puzzle has 15 levels of play. The paid version has more than 100 levels. So, you will only be able to build part of the ancient city of Rome and not the entire city.

Rome Puzzle Game Options:
  • The sound may be turned on or off by clicking the Menu button. This opens a new screen, then simply check or uncheck the Sound button.
  • You may pause the game by clicking the eye icon located in the upper right corner of the game screen. To return to the game, simply click anywhere on the game screen.

Rome Puzzle Playing Tips:
  • Try to get the locks off of the locked tiles as soon as possible by using them in a match of three or more. This is important because on some levels you will need to unlock certain tiles to release other tiles so they can drop to the bottom.
  • Remember, to complete each level you must turn all tiles to gold. On some levels tiles may require more than one match to turn them to gold. For instance, light blue tiles may turn to dark blue on their first match. Then turn to gold on their second match. Locked tiles always require at least two matches before they turn to gold and sometimes require three.
  • If you get stuck Rome Puzzle will give you a hint by highlighting a possible move.
  • Sometimes you may encounter a situation where there are no possible moves left. When these situations occur Rome Puzzle will insert some new tiles into the puzzle. Then, just continue making matches as usual.
  • Watch for special tools you earn, such as an axe. These special tools will appear at the bottom of the game screen. Should you get stuck, you can use these tools to break a troublesome tile. This can sometimes give you just the advantage you need to make it through a level before time runs out.
