Sweet Story

Sweet Story is a wonderful match-3 puzzle game on Facebook that provides casual and free fun. Featured a candy theme, the game conjures up a delicious world known as the sweet city which was destroyed by the army of gobblers. It’s up to you to help the gingerbread man restore the world to its former aroma by solving fun puzzles.

The game structure in Sweet Story is a combined play-and-rebuild pattern similar to that in Clockmaker, another match-3 puzzler released on Facebook several years ago. From the initial Gingerbread Man level, you play at unlocked buildings making matches of three or more candies to complete the specific level objective. By successful pass you win coins, Exp and three random building materials such as cups, hat, muffins, pies, recipe books, jellies and more as rewards. These ingredients are essential to unlock new buildings in the sweet city and so unlock new play fields as well as fresh tiles on them.

The match-3 puzzles play traditional. You swap adjacent tiles and make matches of at least three candies of the same color to pop them away. And you can create special bomb or Armageddon candies by bigger or special shapes of matches and match those candies to unleash great effects. Besides making great matches, you can also purchase several bonuses and skills directly in the shop for earned coins or CandyBucks, the premium currency.

Different power-ups enhance your performance variedly. But generally, they are all familiar for match-3 fans. Clear an entire column or row, blast away an area of tiles, clear the whole board, break all candies of a chosen color, freeze the time for seconds, show one possible move, remove icy and unwrap candies – none of them are never seen before, only that they are presented in unique art style. After you purchase a power-up item, you can see it in the skill tool bar beside the play field and can use it anytime during play. There is nuance between items of skill and bonus here, though. Bonus-based boosters are activated since purchase and effective for 24 hours while the skill items are for one-time use but without timer restriction.

Starting off with the Gingerbread, you need to restore tons of cute buildings from Blackberry Teabar to Waffle Town Hall to Donut xxx. Playing previously restored buildings give you the ingredients needed for the construction of new ones. That entails repetitive play at a structure.  Every building asks you to achieve a specific goal to pass – you may need to simply make 100 matches, remove 10 jellies or ice covering, or break 50 yellow/red/green candies, for instance. And every building in Sweet Story levels up independently challenging you to complete the same type but progressively difficult goal during replay.

In addition to level objectives, you will meanwhile get some open-style quests such as making 5 matches of 5 candies or arriving at Lv. 10 rewarding you with coins and Exp as well to further boost your level-up. Every time you hit the next level, you gain auto energy refill to the full and one CandyBuck (used to purchase powerful boosters and energy packs). With progression through levels you also get your energy bar expanded, though slowly, in terms of maximum.

Energy remains the pace-setter. Unlike many with the Life system, Sweet Story adopts the energy bar system, which leads to forced pause even faster. It costs at least 5 points of energy to play a match. So a maximum of 30 points won’t last long before it drains up. If you don’t want to wait, you can expend CandyBucks to buy energy packs for instant supply. Another way of gaining energy is asking friends to send five points of them as free gifts.

Sweet Story is full of cutesy and casual fun. It is a nice pick for short bursts of play. And with its ever expansive maps and new candy designs for higher levels, it is as fun in the marathon style play.

War of Mercenaries

War of Mercenaries is a brand new free real-time Strategy for multiplayer competition. Around fierce wars between rival corps, the game offers players the chance of pitching blood-thirty mercenaries and beasts against each other in one-on-one competition. Break through others’ defense while reinforce your own. War is on!

War of Mercenaries doesn’t provide a back story. Directly, it places you into the role of a Sire, who is highly anticipated to lead the nation into glory. If you have ever been the lord of a castle or king of an empire, you will find everything in this nation similar in the core in this land. Build the essential functional buildings, construct the resource producing facilities, set up defensive lines with walls, spikes and turrets, train army units, upgrade everything while unlocking new contents, and toughen up trained troops in various battlefields. The task on your shoulder is not changed. The final goal is to possess great military power and conquer the rest of the land while safeguarding your own castle.

For experienced veterans in the field of strategy, there is not anything brand new or innovative that they first experience. That said, you will still be able to capture the twists in some aspects that weigh in its identity and entire quality.

A mid-core strategy game, War of Mercenaries adopts a colorful palette instead of the oppressive dark tone to paint a cartoony world, pleasant and bustling. Even in your base, there seems not a moment of laziness but full of vigor – resources are produced in the houses; chosen units come out (at your order) of the hiring quarters gathering in the barrack to practice prowess; flags spread with the wind, pigeons circling the post. And when it comes to the battle scenes, it’s similarly packed with action and animation, but presented in a tenser atmosphere that suits war. You will see your soldiers charge forward, being killed with one arrow through heart or destroying enemy buildings with effort. There will be blood shed on the battlefield and blood stains left there. You can’t do anything about the casualty but can keep blood splatters out of sight with the stashing option.

In-game battles are in real-time. To fight a battle is not for the battle’s sake, it’s also an important source of gaining large amount of resources. Looted resources are not only helpful of supporting construction and upgrading but also provide another purpose for battles.

When under protection, you can only attack four NPC clans for resources and practice of deployment. With every attack you launched and succeeded, you activate a stronger and better defended castle of the same AI opponents. Initially, you can just send one soldier to win a battle (because there is not any defense), but you can’t since your 2nd try. That’s the uniqueness about the deployment and skills. In every match you have a count-down deployment time, during which you can send the reasonable number of units – not more than needed – to war, for the dispatched soldiers won’t come back even when they survived. So a good commander needs to know the advantages and disadvantages of each unit, the attack range of turrets and the best break-through point of a battle, and also ought to take the casualty into account. Once you are strong enough, you can challenge other real players beginning the evil-for-evil warfare.

War of Mercenaries offers satisfactory experience for newbs and veterans alike. It requires you to take some time constructing the base, but generously offers a lump sum of money – the hard currency – to give you an awesome start or momentum; it cuts off the alliance’s part in the warfare, but offers competitive battle which is fun and tactic-required of itself and also closely connected to the construction. From surface to the bone, it has done a good job. All it’s lack is a Sire – You!
