How to play the Collector's Call Shuffle game in the MeTV Arcade
A guide to the official rules and scoring, plus some pro tips.
•Every tile is worth 10 points. So if you make a match of 3 tiles, you get 30 points.
•This is also true for any tiles destroyed by a special effect. For example, if a ribbon tile clears a row of 7 tiles, that’s 70 points.
•Every time you break the glass box, your multiplier increases by 1, which in turn increases the value of your tiles. For example, at 3x multiplier, a match of 3 tiles is worth 90 points.
•PRO TIP: break as many glass boxes as possible to increase your multiplier, which increases your score in an exponential fashion.
•Breaking glass boxes will give you extra moves based on how many objects were in the box. If there was one object, it’ll award 2 moves. Two objects award 3 moves. And three objects award 4 moves.
•PRO TIP: keep breaking glass boxes to prolong your game as much as possible.
•If there are multiple objects in the glass box, it’ll take multiple matches to remove them. However, a rainbow tile’s (MeTV logo) effect will always break the entire glass box immediately.
•PRO TIP: build up special tiles and use them later in the game to break difficult glass boxes.
•Making a horizontal match of 4 tiles → generates a tile with a vertical ribbon. Matching this again will clear the entire column.
•Making a vertical match of 4 tiles → generates a tile with a horizontal ribbon. Matching this again will clear the entire row.
•Making a match of 5+ tiles in a T or L shape → generates a tile with a round ribbon. Matching this again will clear a 3x3 area.
•Making a match of 5+ tiles in a line → generates a MeTV logo. Swapping this with an adjacent tile will clear all tiles of the same color.
•Swapping 2 adjacent special tiles → combine the two into a super tile and activate it immediately.
•PRO TIP: swap a MeTV logo with another special tile to activate a super powerful effect.
•As you progress further in the game, cardboard boxes will appear and impede your progress. You cannot swap them and they do not match with anything. However, you can remove them by matching tiles right next to them.
•PRO TIP: special tile effects can also remove cardboard boxes
