Just read the Cradle of empires guide and wiki for making the continuous chain.

Cannot pass the match-3 level?

If you cannot pass the match-3 level and you want to pass it, read the best and quick Cradle of empires tips and tricks:

  1. I always start to do matches in the lower part of the field. Thus, in the upper part of the field, arbitrary matches will be made by themselves.
  2. Sometimes I use a hammer if the desired chip is only one square taller than it is necessary to make a match-7 and create a special chip.
  3. Difficult levels at the time I go through with the help of a friend.
  4. I was able to perform the task “Make X Matches in a row with the same chips per level” using a bonus mixer, but first I made the most obvious moves: I made 4x combinations with bananas, I used a mixer, I again made combinations with bananas, etc. It took 2 mixers to make 10 matches with the same chips 10 times.
  5. Since there is always a shortage of Food in my game (I often make deals in totems to get bonuses), I try to play the levels in Blitz mode as long as possible to earn resources. My record, which I set while playing with a friend, was about 3000 units of Food at level 6 in the Field.
  6. In Apiary there is a level where at the very beginning the grass fills 5 cells and it is convenient to use a bomb there. What do you think I do right after the start of this level?
  7. If you generated the Star Ball (Match-7) bomb, it can be used in several ways:
  • Move it to any neighboring cell, and all the chips of this type will be destroyed.
  • Make a match with two Star Balls, and ALL the chips will be destroyed!

Earn the Pharaoh’s Treasury, and also save the energy elixirs that you win for completing quests. 

And then using the pyramid, you can complete all collections and tasks with a large number of experience points within 24 hours, since the pyramid gives you 50% more experience.

How to pause match 3?

Click the Pause button in the upper right corner to pause the level. From the menu that appears, you can restart the level, exit or continue playing.

How to change the level mode?

There are two ways to upgrade the Match-3 mode in the building:

1. Pass the Match-3 levels in the building to upgrade modes (except for unique buildings: Ship, Cave, Sphinx, and Pyramid).

2. Roll dice to upgrade modes.
