1001 Arabian Nights is a fun online matching game based on the classic ‘Match 3’ type puzzle games. Your goal in each level is to piece together an ancient Arabian Artifact (precious treasure) by dropping it off the matching grid. You can do this by matching 3 tiles (or more if you can) around it to eject it from the bottom of the playing grid. Swap adjacent tiles (next to each other or above/below) to match three or more of the same tiles in a row, horizontally or vertically. Once you do this, the matched items disappear. Keep matching the items around the pieces of the Artifact to free it up and drop it off the bottom of the grid. Once you have collected all 3 pieces of the Artifact, the level is complete.
This game is ideal for any Match 3 enthusiasts, and will really test your quick reaction skills – as there is a clock ticking on each level. You’ll also need to have an eagle-eye to pick out the right matches in the sea of colorful tiles. Collect power-ups as you progress to help you along the way. What makes this game unique from other matching games is the cool Arabian ambiance – which is just like the movie Aladdin! Think you’ve got what it takes to become the Matching Genie? Well then, rub the Magic Lamp and let’s go!
How to Play: The goal on each level is to collect pieces of an Artifact (valuable object) to fit into the template in the top left corner of the game screen. These pieces are within the game grid – they are easy to spot because they are nothing like the other colorful tiles. You must collect these pieces by getting them to the bottom of the game grid. To do this, match 3 of the tiles around them to move them closer to the bottom. Once you match 3 or more tiles, they disappear and other tiles (including pieces of the Artifacts) drop down. To match 3 tiles, Left Click on two adjacent tiles and swap them, horizontally or vertically, to make a match. If that swap gets you three (or more) tiles in a row, they disappear.
There are power-ups to collect as you go along. Match 4 or more tiles in a row to charge up your Magic Orb. This is in the bottom left corner of the game screen. Once this Orb is charged up (you see it sparkling), left click on it to activate its power. The Orb magically eliminates random tiles, creating more possible matches for you. There are more magical power-ups to collect as you progress through the levels. Don’t forget, the clock is ticking so get matching as quickly as you can! Good luck.
