How to Obtain More Gold Coins

[Post New]by skpjazz on Aug 12, 17 10:59 AM
There is not a lot of activity in this forum, but I'm sure there must be players out there who may be wishing you had more gold to buy more bonuses/powerups!

As in Penguin Rescue and Pretty Snails, there are levels which will give you 30 coins each time you replay it (actually you don't have to replay it -- just go in and exit it). So...if you can make it to level 30 you can then start adding to your supply. This is the same for every 30 levels, i.e. levels 30, 60, 90, & 120. You can be as greedy as you want , and then replenish all your powerups (if that's how you like to play). This will also help you to experiment and see what combining the powerups will do!

The secret to winning and enjoying this game is to master creating the match 4 and 5 eggs (striped, star, and colored), learn what they do, and how to combine them. You can also combine them with some of the bonuses you need to buy (such as "berries" and "notes"). Have fun and experiment!!

Thanks! I was wondering if there were "free gold" levels since it seems like one needs the powerups more often and the first quest at least didn't provide much gold.

I'm working my way through Claws & Feathers 3 right now, but did play a few more levels of OR at 3am this morning (!). Tips thread to come later once I get done with C&F3

Brilliant, thanks! That money making tip is going to come in useful!

I do think I need to experiment a bit more, as I was getting confused last night. Or maybe that was because, like SynthpopAddict, it was early hours, 4am, lol!!

It's the star egg I'm confused about. When I make a 5 match sometimes get a star and sometimes a coloured egg. Are they random? My favourite levels are fast becoming those where the objectives are to create the eggs, create and combine, so I need to make stars, although not as many as first appears.

For example, if the objective is to create x amount of stripes, x amount of stars and x amount of combos, then the combos also reduce the solo stripes and stars.

It's huge fun, but I wish I knew that I was getting a star when I wanted one!

Hi Lyndy!

The colored egg is created only by the match 5 in a row (xxxxx). The star egg is a T or L match 5 (this is also known as the bomb). The vertical and horizontal eggs are created by match 4s -- the horizontal match creates the vertical striped egg and vice versa. When you combine two striped eggs, they will clear both the row and column at once. Of course when you include a striped egg in a match 3, you will clear either one row or column depending on if its a vertical or horizontal stripe.

The colored egg is my favorite. If you set it off by exchanging it with an owl, it will clear out all owls/eggs/dynamite of that color. But...if you exchange it with a striped egg, you will get multiple clearing out of rows or columns. Of course it depends on how many obstacles are in the way, but if there are a lot of greenery, it will at least get rid of the first layer. Also, the colored egg will enhance the effect of the berries or notes. And of course, if you combine two colored eggs (depending on what's around), you'll get a interesting effect.

I wish this was simpler to explain, but I hope this helps a little bit!
There are so many "ins and outs" to this game, you need to just try every combination to see what works when and where!!

SynthpopAddict:

Just to let you know, I finished C&F3 sooner, because I had demoed it twice elsewhere, so I had a head start. I have three stars on "almost" all the levels, so I will get back to it later to complete it. The reason I'm telling you this is because (for some reason), I am not very good at explaining/helping in the forum for that game. I love the game and I am pretty good at it, but not in explaining how I do it. I did attempt to help someone that was confused by the instructions on level 34, but I may have been wrong about not letting the eggs hatch that may create a match 3 (I should have replayed it to make sure).

Anyway, hopefully I'm a little better in helping in Owl Rescue (or other similar games) than in C&F games. I'll leave C&F to you and other experts!

Brilliant! Thanks, skpjazz, that makes perfect sense and wonderfully explained!

And I got to level 30. It gave me 60 coins each time, lol. Click on Play, get 30 coins, exit the level and get another 30 coins!

Wouldn't it be great if we could enter and exit all the rooms in our homes and get showered with coins!

@skpjazz: Thanks again for all the tips here. With my current schedule I may leave all the gaming tips for OR to you. You mentioned that the combination of powerups you like here is the striped egg + colorful egg, which I think is the equivalent of the colorful penguin + super penguin or flower bouquet + super snail that sets off all the random bombs on the screen?

I did notice in the few levels I played that two striped eggs combined seems to always explode a single line cross shaped explosion instead of either a cross or double line clearout as in the other games depending on the combo. Wasn't too sure if you still get the 3 row/column large cross shaped explosion for a star egg + line egg; there was a larger area cleared out when I did it once?

Lots of fishies in the C&F3 posting...gotta go see what help they need and finish my game.

Thank you for the Level 30 coin game hint.
I was getting desperate for coins -- those upper levels (over about 80 or so) are really hard to do without boosts. Especially the ones that need Strip+Star combos. Its really hard to make the star combo's naturally -- the free move is the only easy way to do but that boost costs.

I nearly went insane doing it but I finally got all the trophies in C&F3 after playing all day long LOL...now I can move on to the owls. Hopefully OR isn't the project C&F3 was.
