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!

Nice but

five match is broken


Rated 4 / 5 stars

excellent game...

i am a HUGE bejeweled and puzzle quest fan, so this was right up my alley. however, i agree with some of the other reviews that the characters are sometimes hard to tell apart and the computer moves too fast at about halfway... i also didnt even notice there was an upgrade shop until i got my ass handed to me in like 3 seconds by the computer and got stunned a lot. overall the concept is there and i like that you can upgrade your units but i think that the game could be simplified by adding MORE items like multiplier boost, or making certain units drop more frequently. then get rid of the upgraded units alltogether and that way you can only achieve higher ranked units by getting more matched and higher multipliers

Has 1 major flaw

Progression. I feel I suddenly cant progress and I have to grind a few previous battles to even get a minor upgrade. I get to the half way point and suddenly I go up against a team that has rank 1 with a few 2s or Rank 2s with a few 1s + weapon/shield/pots, etc

Now half way through, I fight all Rank 3 units with all the other bonuses? Bad progression basically said it all for me to quit half way. Other than that, it is a good game overall.
