Puzzle Chef is a new match-three game for the iOS platform by British developer gumi. Your goal is to collect various ingredients that your chef needs to make a specific meal, and you do this through four different sets of stages, each of which tackles a different set of cuisines, from small town to sushi to Chinese food. Read on for some tips and tricks for Puzzle Chef for iOS!
Your method of making food in this game is to make matches, and matches are made not in the same way as games like Candy Crush, but more in the style of Puzzle & Dragons, in that you drag a piece around the board until it’s wherever you want it to be. That means that you can use a piece to displace many other pieces, drag them all over the place, and make gigantic combinations.
Look for any opportunity that you can to make multiple combos, and to knock out more than three pieces at a time. In this game, you can make combinations of six or more pieces even, and the bigger the combinations, the more points that they are worth. Look at the star meter above the scoreboard to see if you have enough points to earn three stars on a stage or not.
You start the game with five lives, and whenever you lose a stage, you will lose one of your five lives. Whenever you run out of all five lives, just go ahead and set the time ahead on your phone or tablet, then go back to the game and your lives will be restored, provided that you set the time ahead far enough.
Once you do that you can go back to the date and time settings and set the time back to normal. Now when you go back to the game, you will still have all of that energy that you had after you did the trick. You can do this trick as often as you want so that you can play the game essentially forever.
Keep an eye out of special pieces to pop up. For example, the sparkling version of any ingredient is worth two of that ingredient. The stamper, when it pops up, will knock off a 3×3 square on the board. Any of the stampers and other special pieces also activate automatically at the end of a round, causing your point total to skyrocket if you don’t need to use them initially.
