Best Fiends is a puzzle game, where you need to match blocks of the same color by chaining them together. You'll need to match at least 3 blocks at a time, but the more you can chain together, the better.
You chain or match blocks together by dragging your finger on the screen from one block to the next block of the same color.
Best Fiends has an additional combat element on top: you have a team of Fiends, whom you must help to battle the Slugs. Each Fiend is assigned to a different color; for example, when you are chaining together yellow blocks, the yellow Fiend in your team will attack; when you are matching green blocks, the green Fiend will attack, and so on.
Level Goals & Winning
Each level has different goals. Sometimes, you will have to defeat a certain number of Slugs, collect a number of a certain object (e.g. Diamonds), collect an amount of a certain type of block (e.g. yellow flowers) or detonate a number of bombs / dynamite. Once the goals have been met, you will pass the level and move onto the next one. A level's goals can always be reviewed in the top left corner of a level or on the information screen that shows when you tap on the level that you are wanting to play.
Goals: Defeat 8 Slugs, collect 30 yellow flowers, collect 2 Diamonds.
Each Fiend has a special ability, too. When you collect enough blocks of the Fiend's color, their special block will become available.
These help you reach the level goals; for example, bombs are good for defeating Slugs or breaking obstacles.
To use the special blocks, you will need to match blocks of the same color with the special block.
When you beat a level, you gain different items; usually Meteormites and Diamonds. These can be used to make your team of Fiends stronger. The stronger they are, the easier it is to defeat the slugs.
Failing a Level
You fail a level when you run out of moves, or when there are no more possible matches to be made, even if the blocks are reshuffled.
