Maleficent Free Fall is a Match 3 puzzle game by Disney, which is available for Android and iOS mobile platforms. According to the developer, the game promises a spectacular journey with exciting and challenging objectives like you have never seen before. Although, the basic mechanics of the game aren’t too far removed from classic Match 3 gaming, the title offers a dark twist on it. You will follow Maleficent and her story, starting from her youth and progressing from level to level. Now, if you’re hoping to complete more levels with three stars, we suggest you to check out our list of Maleficent Free Fall cheats, tips and tricks.
1. Start Making Matches At The Bottom
Now, here’s one vintage Match 3 mechanic that’s present in Maleficent Free Fall. This works well especially when your goal is to light up the squares, but as a general rule, you’d want to make matches starting from the bottom. This would allow you a better chance of chancing upon combos as the tiles fall from above.
2. Matching On The Sides Doesn’t Hurt When Lighting Squares
While matching from the bottom is a good idea in most, if not all Match 3 games, you can also make matches on the sides of the board. However, this tactic is really best used when lighting up squares, as the squares on the sides are typically the most difficult to lighten up.
3. Create Combos
When you match four or more pieces, or create matches based on T or L shapes, you can create special tiles that have their own unique powers. This is another classic mechanic that holds true in Maleficent Free Fall – it’s always better to make combos involving more than three pieces, as the special tiles you create can help you complete levels faster.
4. User The Power-Ups Wisely
Aside from combos of four or more tiles, power-ups can be useful tools in helping you complete more three-star levels and finish any level faster, but using them isn’t a guarantee that you’ll complete a level. Furthermore, power-ups can be quite costly, so you really would want to go easy on them and only use them when you really need to, such as in truly difficult, seemingly unwinnable levels.
5. Use The Time Lapse Cheat For More Lives
Want extra lives but don’t want to pay a cent? All you have to do is quit the game, adjust the date/time on your device to another date, and return to the game and get your hearts meter filled up once again. Just be sure to change the time back to normal after you’re done with the cheat.
6. Replay Levels
Of course, you can go back and replay a level, taking stock of why you didn’t get three stars the first time. But replaying levels, as in restarting a level if the pieces don’t fall in your favor, isn’t a bad idea either. You won’t be penalized for doing this, and it’s always good to have a board that’s set up in such a way that you can easily wipe it out.
