Breaking them down

Pet Rescue Puzzle Saga

What you need to know is how to get past obstacles, right? Well we've got what you need. Mostly.

There are a few special kinds of obstacles, but for the majority, one rule dominates. Break the blocks next to the obstacle, and the obstacle will start to break down.

It's a simple thing at first, but certain stage layouts can make it incredibly awkward to get at certain obstacles, and if your objective is to go for them, or it's covering an objective, it can be difficult.

Ice can cover objectives and blocks, while grass will take a block of it's own. The different obstacles have subtle, but importantly different properties.

Fog is a unique one, because it's not an obstacle, as in, it doesn't get in the way of blocks falling through. What it does do though is prevent you from tapping on the blocks underneath it.

Luckily, it dissipates by breaking blocks near it, like everything else. Otherwise, you can tease objectives out by clearing blocks underneath the fog.

You'll quickly adjust to any new obstacles as they're added, and while destroying blocks next to them is a safe bet, bombs and rockets are way better, especially for single hit obstacles.

Just remember bombs and arrows will appear in the same block that you tap! Use this to position them for maximum impact.
