Tavern Guardians is a match-three game that brings some much-needed innovation to what is a tired genre in mobile gaming. Players match objects to attack enemies while healing themselves, forcing players to rethink their approach to the typical Bejewelled-like. Tavern Guardians can prove quite a challenge at first, but we've got a few helpful tips to make sure you survive no matter what the game throws at you.
Defeat the enemies with healing abilities first
You'll frequently run into creepy little monsters that mutter healing spells under their breath, restoring HP to the rest of the enemies on the board. They'll continue to do so until you kill them, so save yourself the headache and focus your fire on these pests before moving on to other baddies.
Rebuild your defenses at the beginning
At the start of each round, you have a few spare turns before enemies invade your board and make their attack. Use these precious turns to recover from the previous battle. Rebuild your shield walls and restore your health by matching meat tiles. This will ensure you can survive much longer in a tough situation.
Use your abilities liberally
Each of your heroes has a set of special, highly useful abiltiies. Each of them has a recast timer, but you don't have to worry about MP as long as your matching the blue mana potions. Use these skills strategically, but don't be afraid to use them as often as they're available. You'll kneed to know when to use an area of effect ability vs. a more focused power, but overall take advantage of these awesome powers as much as possible to win the day.
While Tavern Guardians doesn't baby you, the battles are relatively short, and there's so much to unlock and explore we doubt you'll want to walk away from this one. It's a pleasant surprise as far as match-three's go, and we know you'll go far if you keep the advice above in mind.
