Puzzling War is an interesting mix between match-3 puzzle game with simple war strategy theme.

Play as a tactician to conquer a forgotten kingdom far in the north continent. There are 15 levels available, each with unique environment, enemy & AI difficulty.

By upgrading, player will be able to dispatch more powerful unit. You can also dispatch higher level unit without upgrading by matching more than 3 unit block.

Player can also buy several power up item to help him in the next battle. He can use the item by matching it's block in the middle of the battle. Just remember though that the more block type exist in the game board, the harder it is to make a match.

There are also Highscore & Achievement feature for those who seek additional challenge in this game.


No.1 daily feature and front page? Cool!

It was kind of fun

but the pieces look way too similar. After a moment it gets frustrating. If they were more distinguishable, it would make it a lot more fun.

I like it, I thought the graphics were ok the combat animation could stand some improvements. My complaint is that it's too much puzzle and not enough strategy, you have all these different classes but it doesn't matter because the player is going to send out the first match he sees anyway, the classes are also all the same some are just more powerfull versions of the other, not really too many pros or cons of sending one class out before another. That said still not bad for a flash game.

Graphics :(

while fun, I found the graphics to get in the way of the gameplay. there's too much grey on too many characters. when you start scanning the board many of the pieces look the same.

Also, there's no real point in getting big combos. perhaps activating a special attack when 4 or 5 are matched would have helped improve gameplay.

upgrades are okay. maybe allowing individual stats to be improved could help add strategy to the game.

Also the game just feels short.

fix/improve these things and you could have a good addition to the bejeweled style game.
