Review This game is being updated roughly every 3 - 4 weeks and more levels added, and there are currently about 640 levels to play.
The aim of the game is to rescue cute pets and this can be a real challenge.
King provide hints and tips on overcoming a difficult level, on their FAQ page and you can also watch a difficult level on Youtube, though it doesn't always help you!
A Facebook game, you can play against your friends and see their score and try to beat it. In the photo below the left side is blank which means none of my friends have yet reached the level I am at.

If you complete a level successfully, you do not lose any of your five lives.
You can buy boosters to help you if you get stuck and you can also buy lives to continue playing when your lives run out.
You only get 5 lives and then you can ask friends for more.
You can also send lives to your friends.
Sending lives to your friends
Not every level in Pet Rescue Saga has the same challenge; and there are three modes, that is three different patterns for getting through a level. These are:
The Rescue Mode; in this, you are required to rescue the trapped pets by freeing the way down to the base of the screen through popping out the matching blocks below them; at least one star is required here too in order to proceed to the next level.
Here you have to rescue the pets from the cages first
I failed at this level.
I could not rescue the pets
The Classic Mode; here, you need to burst a certain number of blocks to get through the next level while at the same time securing as many points as you can get in order to gain at least one star (since, if you fail to do so, you can’t pass, even if you have achieved the needed number of blocks).
The Score Mode; in this game mode, the only requirement is to fulfill the asked challenge in a specific number of moves, gathering of course a minimum score that can give you the needed star to proceed.
The above presented modes are not necessarily separate; in some levels, you may come across combinations of Rescue Mode and Score Mode.
In this following photo you can see the level I am at and from here is where I begin.
Here is the level I am up to again
All in all, a great game however I am currently stuck on this level and have been for about two weeks now, which is very frustrating.
