Animal Cove Released Worldwide!

Aug 24, 2018

Animal Cove, Kingsisle’s latest mobile game has finally received its worldwide release after almost years of a limited release and beta testing! The game is available on the App Store (for iOS users) and Google Play store (for Android users). The game itself is rather simple, it’s a Match-3 (match three of the same tiles to progress) with 300 levels (but they are adding more!). What makes this game different, however, is that it has a central storyline, side events and customisability, unlike other Match-3s. 

The match-3 board, at first, appears as a simple square with simple objectives; keep matching three of the same tiles until you run out of rounds. Then, as the game progresses you’re introduced to more ways to match tiles, such as four or five of a kind. You can also match 2×2 squares to produce eggs that, when matched in 3s, will hatch a chicken to help you with your objective. 

The objetives get more and more complicated as you progress. Your first “hard” board is at level 15 and consists of collecting 40 yellow flowers through matching and feeding the hedgehog through matching with his food. 

However, it’s not just a endless cycle of matching tiles and completing levels like some games. In fact, after every time you complete a level you receive one key and some gold. Each key can be used to go towards tasks around the map, you start off by rebuilding your house, landscaping and building a dog house for Winston. 

The tasks also allow you to customise whatever you build, allowing you full control of the theme you want for the island. 

After level 45, you can partake in special events that have leaderboards and much more! As you progress through the game, you will meet new animals who are friend….and some are enemies. You can read all about the storyline and who might be the big baddie of Animal Cove over on Vanessa’s blog, The Untold Spiral

If you’re unable to complete a level, you can use your hearts to have another go (max 5 hearts unless you are on the Animal Cove VIP program, which increases it to 8). Hearts replenish overtime, and can also be received through friends! 

I’m having a lot of fun playing Animal Cove so far, don’t forget  check it out for yourself in the App Store and Google Play Store – rate & review it too! You can also follow Animal Cove on twitter and engage in discussions on the forum.

I’ll be sending hearts out daily to my friends, so add me – see the image below for my GameID and let me know what you think of Animal Cove in the comments!
