How can I finish off a level?
Your target is always dual: one, you need to pick up the points that will give you at least one star; at the same time, you have to accomplish the challenge that is raised at the start of the level.
How do I build up my score?
For those who have indulged in Candy Crush Saga or similar titles, that is an easy guess; you simply tap the blocks you choose so that two or more of the same colour to come to contact, thusly bursting and opening up the way for the Pets while awarding you points so as to head out for the next level. A significant fact: popping out bigger packs of blocks rewards you with an immense boost in your score!
What exactly are Game Modes?
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; as explained earlier, at least one star is required here too in order to proceed to the next level.
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 knapped the needed number of blocks).
The Score Mode; in this game mode, the only requirement is to fulfil 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.
What about the lives?
Like Candy Crush Saga, a Pet Rescue Saga player has five lives at his / her disposal at the beginning of the game. Completing a level successfully is what you need in order to maintain those lives; on the other hand, failing to complete a level, or quitting it, results in the loss of one life, so, if you want to continue for free, you have to wait for half an hour for the life to be replaced (the time remaining for the recovery of the life is displayed on the screen!); in case you want to continue right away, your options are either to purchase a set of five lives or, if you are connected to facebook, to ask your friends to give you some of their own spare lives. However, do not forget to be equally open-handed with your friends by too sharing your lives with them; besides, if you reach the maximum five lives, you cannot add any extra, so give the excess ones to your friends!
Are there any new levels on the way?
Of course! Pet Rescue Saga is a relentlessly renewed game, with updates and extras being added on a regular basis (practically, every 2-3 weeks). So, one thing is for sure: the fan will take a long time to subside!
What about Boosters?
Boosters are extremely useful in providing assistance in completing the relatively trickier levels, helping you to force your way through once you are stuck in a troublesome situation. For example, the Key Blaster Booster aids in eliminating stone blocks, the Mesh Masher Booster removes every cage, turning any caged block to an ordinary block, the Column Blaster can eradicate a whole column with each use, the Line Blaster Booster wipes out whole rows (being extremely handy in levels with solid steel blocks), the Block Buster Booster, which is a practical hammer that you use in order to break an irritatingly positioned block, etc.!
How how can I put those Boosters to use?
Boosters appear at the side of the screen (on the spinner, next to the game board) and you can activate them by clicking on them; obviously, in order to switch them on, they must be ready, and you can be informed on that by the intense colour they have; otherwise, they appear as pale (the same applies to the Boosters which have already been consumed).
How do I get the Boosters?
All boosters, firstly appearing on level 6, need a facebook credit to be purchased, and they come with a number of charges which are expended every time you resort to the help of one; exceptionally, the Block Buster Booster can be purchased with game coins earned in-game.
Is it mandatory to purchase the Boosters?
No, of course not! If you are ardent and skilled enough, you can finish the game without their help; still, you need to know that Pet Rescue Saga is a game that steadily gets harder, thus making it truly hard to pull yourself and your Pets out of the hindrances, but you can definitely do it!
Which are the devices that support Pet Rescue Saga?
All Android devices can run the game, provided they meet the following requirements: processor built on ARMv7 architecture, support OpenGL ES 2.0, support 320×480 resolution or higher and running on Android OS 2.2 or higher.
Apple devices with iOS version, 4.3.5 or later, for the models: iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad 1 and later models, as well as iPod Touch 3rd generation and later models. Do keep in mind that the game does not support jailbroken iOS devices!
In any case, you should use a flash supporting web browser in your device.
A message “Your device is not compatible” appears on my Android device; what is happening?
Probably, your device does not meet the requirements for the compatible Pet Rescue Saga.
What about crashing that happens when I begin a level?
Typically, the problem has to do with the memory of your device; a recommended action is, simply, to restart it so as to unblock its memory, and the game will likely be initiated without further complications; also, you might need to remove your game and reinstall it. In any other case, you might need to consult an expert.
The game seems to be loading properly, but I can not open up a level. What should I do?
Click on the left upper icon to open up the game in full screen mode; if that doesn’t help, try to clear out your browser cache.
Can I continue with my progress in case I need to reinstall the game?
Well, it depends; normally, your progress is simply stored on the device, and thus, it will be lost when the application is removed; however, if you are synched with facebook, your progress is saved on your account, and therefore you can go on unlocking new levels and accessing leaderboards after the reinstallation!
I shopped for an item from the shop but it seems like I never got it. Is this a kind of scam?
No, fortunately not. It is a complication that can happen, and the reason for this is the loss of internet connection after buying the item, when the purchase is about to be confirmed via a message. The solution could be the following: If you use Android devices, you first uncheck the “Don’t Keep Activities” option (in the Advanced Settings menu) on your device; then, go to the home screen of the game, tab on the Settings icon and then on Restore Purchases to hopefully restore your Google Play purchases. If you use an iOS device, things are simpler: go to the home screen of the game, tab on the Settings icon, then tap on Restore Purchases, and your App Store purchases should be renewed. However, if those steps do not take care of the hassle, check your receipts (which have been sent to you via e-mail), contact Google Play or Apple, and click on the Report a Problem link.
Is a facebook account pivotal so as to play Pet Rescue Saga?
Registering an account at facebook and being synced is definitely the most popular choice, however that does not mean it is a mandatory one! Thus, if you are not so keen on plugging in your facebook info and sharing your experience with friends, you can enjoy the game without a bf connection.
Do I lose my progress in case I log out of my facebook account and someone else logs in after that?
Of course not! After all, Pet Rescue Saga is able to support several log-ins with various facebook accounts, so there is no need to worry. Any time you log out, your progress is saved and can be restored the moment you log in again; therefore, if someone else logs in using another facebook account, all the progress made from that point is stored to that account and not to yours.
Why can’t I get my facebook messages and help from my friends on my device?
It’s a small issue that can by tackled by logging out and then logging in to your account. Go to the main Pet Rescue Saga menu and tap the Facebook Connect icon; by doing so, your Facebook messages will almost certainly appear on your screen.
Why is the progress from facebook not appearing on my mobile?
Check on the small icon on the lower right part of the map screen; normally, this icon should be green, to indicate that synchronisation with facebook has been successfully completed; but if it is red, then you have come to the source of the problem. To tackle it, locate a find a more solid internet connection and try to get synchronised again.
