Caribbean Hideaway - the match 3 game you are bound to like!
you remember your childhood? The fascinating pirate stories and marine
adventures? Have you ever dreamt of sailing the waters of the high seas
under the Jolly Roger? Or maybe you are a fan of the Pirates of the
Caribbean movie series? In any case Oberon Media and TwinTale Entertainment have prepared a great gift for you - Caribbean Hideaway!
The game will take you to an island in the Caribbean (you choose the
name for your island yourself), where Captain Caninbahl is trying to
build a real pirate village - Caribbean Hideaway, when an extraordinary
event breaks the peaceful life of the village. The young ship's boy
Dewey's sweetheart Ruby is kidnapped - and our brave pirates venture to
the risky trip trying to save her. Dangers, treasures and triumphs
The game combines elements of strategy and traditional match 3 game play.
main goal is to build a settlement where all the pirates will live in
safety and thrive. For this construct different buildings, from the
Smith to Treasure Vault or Rum Maker. Each building requires certain
resources - gold pieces, carpenters to build it and staff to work in
it. These are collected during match 3 levels.
As I already mentioned, the match 3 game play is quite traditional. On
each level you will receive a task or a couple of them to fulfill. For
instance, as Dewey you will clear the ship's deck (that is remove all
blue tiles from the playfield) and collect treasures (the tasks of
colleting all the full chests are sometimes really challenging), and in
the role of Captain Caninbahl be sure you'll have to fight foes and
earn reputation points. These will prove very useful, as you progress
in the game.
The quicker you pass match 3 levels, the more
resources you will have for developing your settlement. And the quicker
you develop your settlement the more benefits you receive in the match
to know why? Everything is simple: each building requires gold - you
get gold for collecting coins during the level and for the time
remaining; each building requires people - new citizens come to your
island when you get a new rank. And you get a new rank after earning a
certain reputation among the pirate brotherhood. Reputation points are
obtained in the levels with opponents (surely, you have to defeat foes
or sharks in order to become popular) - the quicker and more
efficiently you fight, the higher your reputation gets.
But here is the tricky moment. The
strategy part will require certain thinking and balancing, as having
money without people will not do you any good - there'll be no one to
work on construction, even if you can pay. And having people without
money is even worse, as no one will work until they get paid - and
unemployed citizens will steal money from you after each level! Surely,
you can put them to jail - but that one needs to be constructed also! I
would say, it's quite a challenge - to get everything in perfect
I should also say a couple of words on power-ups. They can be
earned either by the way of developing the island, as each building
gives you some benefits, or directly during match 3 game, which is
quite standard for such games. Explore all the possibilities - and your
success will be a little closer!
To bring it to a conclusion, I can say the game is
really nice and quite addictive. A great choice for all match 3 fans,
as well as those in love with the sea and pirate romance!
P.S. Almost forgot - the graphics are very appealing. Cute characters and beautiful backgrounds - see with your own eyes!
