Cascade is a new match three puzzle game for mobile devices by Big Fish Games. Your goal is to make as many matches of three or more (ideally more) as possible by tapping on jewels to make combos with them, while making special blocks appear, knocking them out and using them to skyrocket your score. Read on for some tips and tricks for Cascade!
You have five lives maximum, but when the lives run out, you’re done for a while, and you have to wait half an hour per life. You can buy lives right from the App Store, as a side option, or you can get all of your lives back for free by setting the time ahead on your phone or on your tablet. Set it ahead by half an hour per life that you want to recover.
Then, once you do that, you can set the time back to normal and then go back to Cascade and your lives will still be there. You can then use all of your lives up yet again, and then do the trick again, and again, and again for as long as you want; however, if you’re winning at Cascade you shouldn’t have to.
Try to make the largest combinations possible, and take advantage of any wild card gems that you get. Knock off a huge color to get a line jewel or a splash jewel, and knock off a combination of three different colors at a time with the wild card in order to get a rainbow jewel. Mix two rainbow jewels together to knock off every single piece on the screen (include both of them in a combo) and mix a rainbow with a line jewel to turn every single one of the color that you knock off into a line jewel.
Try to complete the mission as soon as possible. The sooner that you complete the mission, the more moves that you will have left over, and the easier it will be to earn insanely high scores. Focus on knocking out only the pieces that you need to in order to win (for example, on jelly stages, the ones on top of the jellies).
Save your power ups for the toughest stages in the game. Power ups are rare and can only be purchased with real money in the IAP store, so you are going to need to either make do without, spend money, or save them so that you can use them on especially difficult stages.
