Trilogic (iOS) Tips, Cheats & Guide to Solve More Puzzles

1Button’s new iOS and Android title is an exciting puzzle game, where you should be ready to challenge your brain with the game’s puzzles, which supposedly number 180. That is, to be very honest, quite a lot of puzzles for a game of this magnitude, though as the old adage goes, “the more the merrier.”

All in all, you’re going to be using vintage rock-paper-scissors hierarchy to clear the boards in the game, and you’ll need to clear out certain elements in relation to how they play with the other two elements in question. You have all the time in the world to complete the levels, but only a limited number of moves; are you up to it, especially since this game has all those puzzles waiting to be solved? Let us be your guide to this game, as these Trilogic tips and tricks are designed to help you in completing more of the 180 or so puzzles available in the game.

1. The Basics Of Playing The Game

The idea of this game is that the three elements (Water, Fire, Leaf) are supposed to play nice with each other. That means each of the game’s many puzzles will ask you to lay down an entire Fire base, for instance, then cover it with the middle element (Water, using that example), and topping it off with the target element (Leaves, again using that same example). Basically, the hierarchy is all in the game description – Water beats Fire, Fire burns Leaves, Leaves drink Water. And when it comes to coming up with the target element, what you want to do here is to create big color chunks, and to square them off whenever you could, so you don’t leave any one-block or one-row corners that you couldn’t quite get to. One useful basic tip is to work your way from the outside to the inside, using concentric circle patterns to ensure that you take up as much real estate as possible and keep those blanks filled in.

2. Use The Tails As A Guide

If you end up with a tail in any given row, you should use that tail as a guide, as you work your way backwards. Unless you’re trying to undo a move you just made, you cannot change directions, so with that simple thought in mind, the tail is your end point, or the point which you should try to reach. Now if you’re trying to lay down paths of a certain element, you should again try to protect that path by squaring it off, and use the minimum required of a given element. You don’t want to find yourself in a tough spot, where you can’t reach the tails when you’re at your last target element.

3. How To Deal With ‘Islands’

Islands would refer to the term many use to call those patches of elements on the board that don’t have any blocks nearby that they can suck up. What you should be doing here is to bring out the consumable element as early on as you could. You should make your way to those islands by doing this, as that’s going to reduce the number of choices you have while trying to solve the puzzle.

4. There’s No Need To Use All Your Moves In One Go

Regardless of the element, there’s no need whatsoever to put all your eggs in the figurative basket. In other words, you shouldn’t use all the available moves in one sitting – if you’ve got nine moves of water, for instance, it’s not necessary to use all the nine available moves consecutively. Most of the time, you will only need to make one or two moves, and that would allow the second element to move in, or open things up as you prepare to lay down the final target element. And when it comes to symmetrical puzzles, you can follow this simple trick – make one move at a time on each of the sides. Sounds simple, right?

Of course, that isn’t the case all of the time, and you may, more often than not, find yourself unsure of what to do and how to move forward. During those times, remember that there tend to be pieces that are only capable of making one move, no more and no less. You should move those pieces and make use of that singular move – that’s going to create several paths, while allowing you to follow the trial-and-error cycle and saving some time simultaneously.

5. Don’t Dwell Too Long On Any Given Level

You know how it is in exams, right? If you don’t know the answer to a certain question, don’t dwell on it for too long; move on to the next questions and go back and regroup once you’ve tackled the others. That too applies in Trilogic; you have the option to skip those harder levels and try the other ones. Better yet, you’re free to take a break anytime you feel you need one – playing the game with a clear state of mind is always a good and helpful idea. And, as a final alternative course of action, you can buy keys so you can unlock levels. Don’t let this game get you down – it may sometimes be tricky, but taking some time off typically can do wonders for your gameplay once you return.
