The joy of building your own zoo is now in the palm of your hand! Family Zoo: The Story is a mix between a zoo management game and a match-3 puzzle game. Our Family Zoo: The Story cheats and tips will guide your on your quest to rebuild the legendary family zoo and restore its legacy!
Bouncing back between the different game modes can be quite the doozy, so we’re to help you out with our Family Zoo: The Story cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide!
Make as many boosters as you can!
Matching four or more fruit will result in a Booster-type fruit. These explosive boosters can be detonated by either double tapping on them or matching them with another fruit. The power of a booster is determined by how many fruit you initially chained, so if you created a booster using seven fruit it’ll be super powerful!
Boosters are great for helping you clear objectives and just simply blowing up big chunks of the board at a time. The best part about them though is the Crazy Orange! Every booster explosion you set off will charge up the meter at the bottom right corner of the screen. You can use the Crazy Orange once the meter is full – it’s the rainbow piece. Matching the Crazy Orange with any kind of fruit will immediately remove every single fruit of that type off the board. Crazy useful!
Prioritize your objective!
Each level you play in the match-3 puzzle mode has a certain objective you will need to fulfill. Some levels will ask you to match a specific type of fruit, some will make you remove grass by matching on the correct tiles, and some will make you explode a certain number of boosters. Whichever objective you get try to prioritize it. Conserve your moves and always think about what your next move will be to maximize efficiency!
Spend your lives in one go!
You’ll need tickets to renovate the zoo successfully. You should play the match-3 puzzle levels if you’re at maximum lives. You’ll need to play them eventually because the future tasks require more and more tickets, so you might as well spend your lives. Spend them all in one go so that you can start regenerating them as you take care of the other matters, like zoo renovations you can do at the time.
Keep working on the To Do list!
Everything you need to do that involves restoring the zoo to its former glory requires tickets. Eventually you will unlock “Enclosures” in the To Do list, and these tasks involve restoring animal enclosures. It doesn’t matter which tasks you prioritize first – they will all need to be done at some point.
Remember to play smart with boosters!
That’s about it for the zoo building portion of the game – it’s simple, really! All you need to do is keep spending tickets to touch up various parts of the zoo. The hard part is actually getting the tickets from playing the match-3 puzzle levels.
Like we mentioned before, the key to swift and successful levels is utilizing the booster fruits as much as you can. Not only do they help you conserve moves but they can be a big help when dealing with the level’s objectives. Collecting a certain kind of fruit? Blow ’em all up! Clearing out grass? Blow it all up! When it doubt, your problems can probably be solved with boosters. Conserve your moves, go for big chains as much as possible, and blow anything up!
