Ever dreamed of creating your own garden? Now’s your chance! Gardenscapes New Arces is a match-3 puzzle game with a gardening twist. As you complete levels, you earn stars to spend on cleaning up the various gardens around the lot. These gardens have seen better days, and now it’s up to you to restore them to their former glory!
Whether you like match-3 games or just love gardening, Gardenscapes is new approach to the classic match-3 formula. Let’s get started with our Gardenscapes New Acres cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide!
1. Look carefully for the gnomes!
On the levels where you need to uncover the gnome statues, you can look closely to kind of see where they might be hiding. If grass is covering a spot where you think a gnome might be hiding, make sure to reduce the grass to its thinnest layer by matching fruit and flowers. At the layer where there are holes, if you see a bright white color peeking through the holes, there’s a gnome there!
2. Look for match-4s!
We know this is a match-3 game, but you’re going to have to get into the habit of matching more than that! Difficulty spikes in match-3 games usually happen late into the game, but it happens in Gardenscapes as soon as level 8. Don’t rush through the levels; take your time. Don’t try to do just threes – examine the board and see if you can setup up a four chain. You’ll quickly run out of moves if you’re not always thinking one step ahead.
3. Save your gold for the shovel power up!
Out of all the power ups, if you’re going to buy one, you should get lots of Shovels. Shovels let you dig up one tile anywhere on the board, and this can mean the difference between beating the level and losing. The other power ups just start you out with an explosive or rainbow power up already on the board, which may give you a head start but can be easily wasted. Instead, we recommend just sticking with the shovels.
4. Hang onto the rainbow blasts!
When your rainbow blast meter charges all the way and a piece forms on the board, resist! We know it’s tempting to set it off immediately but usually it’s a good idea to hold onto until you really need it. Say, for example, you’re trying to get a gnome out of a little nook in the corner of the board and you can’t just get the berries you need to get the single one out of the way. This is where the rainbow blast comes in and opens the way for you!
