Fairy Tale Twist, a wonderful match-3 puzzle game, is the latest works released by Znyga for Facebook. Inspired by the well-known fairy tales for children, the game uniquely blends the familiar stories and the iconic characters in them with the established matching-3 mechanics to bring a delightful and relaxed experience.

Fairy Tale Twist

Fairy Tale Twist unfolds its gameplay in a story book style. Each separated fairy tale is one episode of the whole book, and the game easily threads them together in its own loose storyline about helping characters in fairy tales maintain their happiness ever after. It casts the little dwarf Rumpelstiltskin as the trouble-maker who uses his magic and power to set obstacles for the many protagonists. And your task is to help them to protect their happy endings, with your great skills in matching tiles.

Story aside, the game core is still the popular match-3 mechanics. Similar to rules you know from most games of this type, it asks you to match 3 or more tiles on the board to achieve the level goal before you run out of moves. Some levels are purely about to score high points with the least possible moves; and some others implement greater part of story-telling, involving you in the fairy tales and casting you in a heroic role. At those levels, you may wake up the feathered friends that are enchanted by Rumpel’s magic, or free the poor ladybugs out of the icy blocks. It is great that all levels on one map/episode are consistently true to their theme/story and that the entire gameplay is closely coherent to the fairy tale style. You will have Bluebell as your guide, gingerbread man to help you through tough levels and magic hats, pumpkin coach and other typical fairytale-marked elements appearing in it.

To pass through levels, you need skills to create some special effects on the board and can also make use of the many power-ups you unlock. To make a match of 5 tiles gets you a crystal ball; to manage a T-shaped match creates a Pixie Dust charm; and to combine two of any available charms will make some explosive moves that may even clear half of the board. But you really need to keep an eye on your goal and use your limited moves effectively; otherwise failure greets you and claims one of your lives.

Fairy Tale Twist provides dozens of levels of four fairytales at the time of writing, including the Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Snow White and Hansel and Gretel. Every time you enter a new story, you will have different background scenes, newly added obstacles to the board and story-related tasks while you strive to retrieve the magic and color stolen by the mischievous dwarf to the story book.

Fairy Tale Twist is a wonderful blend of match-3 with lighthearted stories. With solid matching mechanics, polished graphics and pleasant storytelling, it can be a good timewaster.

Update: Zynga has renamed Fairy Tale Twist into Puzzle Charms.
