Apple Games Features Puzzle Quest: Challenge Of The Warlords
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords is the latest game title to be featured on Apple's Games site. The colorful game combines the popular puzzle challenge of match three titles like Bejeweled with the stat building strategy of an RPG. Apple's article features an overview of the game's features as well as some tips and tricks for getting the most out of Puzzle Quest.

The puzzle board is reminiscent of Bejeweled, except the matches you create grant specific effects. The spells you learn during your adventures require specific amounts of red, yellow, green, or blue mana to cast; you gather it by matching three or more of the same-colored gems. Match three or more skulls to damage your opponent, three or more stars to gain experience points, and three or more stacks of coins to pick up extra gold pieces.

Between quests, use your gold to purchase items that grant you bonuses during combat, such as armor that gives you a chance to deflect damage inflicted by your opponent, or a sword that increases your Battle skill. And donít forget to start working on your citadel by erecting buildings that allow you to capture enemies and learn spells from them, capture mounts and learn to ride them, and more. You can even put up a statue that declares you king or queen and increases your life points.

You can also build up your characterís abilities without taking on quests by choosing Instant Action, which pits you against a random opponent. Choose the opponent you want to fight, from a lowly skeleton or rat to a mighty flame dragon. The game can scale your adversary according to your characterís level, but it canít do much if youíre fifth level and you want to battle a dragon.
