Most match three games focus on the amount of matches done in a short span of time, but Spellfall differs from the norm. It rewards players for calculated, strategic moves, and that’s why it’s fun.
In the world of Spellfall, players cast spells by moving pieces on the game board to create matches. The larger the match or cascade, the more damage is done to the enemy NPC. Players can only make a certain amount of moves per turn, starting with four. Once the player runs out of moves, the enemy gets to attack. Whoever runs out of hit points first wins.
Players upgrade their hero by beating enemies and gaining experience which allows them to level up. Better armor and weapons can also be purchased from the store along with runes, which give your armor and weapons bonuses.
There are a variety of enemies, each with their own strengths, weaknesses and special attacks. Players have to take those strengths and weaknesses into account of they are to prevail.
There are fifteen areas to battle through, each with small maps players for players to navigate. Once an area has been concurred, it will generate income, but players have to log in often as areas can be reclaimed by the enemy.
All in all, Spellfall is a nice change to an over-saturated mobile genre.
