Two of the most popular genres of Android games on the Google Play Store are match 3 games (of the likes of Candy Crush in which we have to join identical elements on a panel) and role-playing games, also known as RPGs. Empires & Puzzles: RPG Quest brings together both concepts although the truth is that it's more like a match 3 game set in a role-playing world rather than a fusion of both styles.
A puzzle game with fantasy settings
But that doesn't matter because we all like puzzles about matching 3 or more identical elements on a panel to make them disappear. What we're not so keen on is if they are sickeningly sweet as is the case of the above-mentioned Candy Crush (and not precisely due to the sugar of the candies) or if they are visually exhausting as we've seen in so many apps with animations and eternal transitions.
In Empire & Puzzles, we'll find the typical RPG scenario full of knights, dragons, wizards, spells, demons, and others that are just an excuse for the puzzles incorporated into the game. By completing them, we'll be able to wipe out all our enemies by using special attacks or cards to cast spells and combos.
Collect heroes, build fortresses, obtain spells... just like in a real RPG.
These are the main features of this game that you'll enjoy once you download its APK:
- Combine 3 or more elements at once and launch powerful combos against your enemies.
- Invoke and collect troops and heroes.
- Play against users from all over the world in the online mode.
- Increase the powers of your heroes, buildings, and spells as you complete different levels.
- Build a team and fight against more powerful players.
- Set in a world of fantasy designed with great graphics.
Although it's true that its features include options that are more typical of RPGs such as collecting characters, building fortresses or learning new skills, those can only be acquired by completing the different puzzles. We also have to point out the online gameplay which isn't very common in this genre.
