From the creators of the well-known Candy Crush Saga and Farm Heroes Saga comes this similar puzzle game built on the plot of rescuing captured pets. Each level shows a variety of colored blocks with different animals in different places. The goal of the game is to tap on groups of blocks to remove them, thus rescuing the pets by bringing them down to the bottom of the puzzle. A variety of “boosters” also become available throughout the game which help achieve these purposes--like a rocket that will remove all blocks in a vertical line, or a hammer that will eliminate a block of your choosing. Dozens of levels appear in each of four maps, with levels becoming increasingly more difficult as they go on. Levels are passed by rescuing a required number of pets and reaching a certain score. You are also rated with a number of stars depending on the efficiency of the solution; failure results in losing a life.
