Empires and Puzzles will be adding an exciting new twist to its match-3 madness with “Starfall Circus”, a follow-up to the recent “League of Villains” event. Launching on June 10th and running until the 14th in collaboration with Small Giant, Zynga’s new in-game event brings the circus to town, along with new stages and heroes to spice things up.

The dazzling event will bring 30 new stages and 11 cool heroes with circus-themed aesthetics to the land of Karemdol. The fantastical event will introduce Whacker the Wacky Walloper, Theobald the Knife-Throwing Miracle Bear, and Emilio the Great Undead Phoenix Tamer. Plus, the Starfall quest will grant heroes of the Starfall family a 20% increase in attack, defense, and health.

“Following the success of our League of Villains, our new Starfall Circus challenge brings a new family of amazing heroes including ringmasters, acrobats, and clowns,” says Jose Saarniniemi, Small Giant Games’ Managing Director. “The fun and spectacle of a circus setting offers players a fresh take on Empires and Puzzles' vaunted match-3 puzzle gameplay."

Of course, fans of the title can still slay dragons, train their epic army, get their adrenaline pumping in PVP duels around the world, and engage in epic battles with their legendary heroes with the regular story, as they explore new worlds and build empires and strongholds in this RPG-slash-match-3 hybrid.

Empires and Puzzles is available to download on the App Store and on the Google Play Store for free with in-app purchases. You can also join the community of fans on the official Facebook page to stay updated on the latest developments.
