Cradle of Rome 2 Tips and Tricks

Welcome to the tips and tricks for Cradle of Rome 2! These tips and tricks include general information and helpful hints to complete the game.

 

Tips and Trcks Menu:

 

How to Play

Match three or more tiles in a row by clicking on adjacent tiles to swap them.
Destroy marble tablets by matching the tiles on top of them. Clear all the marble tablets to finish the level. The water in the jug shows how much time is left. You need to break all of the tablets before time runs out!
Some of the tiles give you resources, such as gold, supplies and food. Each silver coin gives you three units of gold. Each gold coin gives you five units of gold. Collect coins to build the city.

 

Obstacles

Some tiles have double marble tablets under them. Make two matches on such tablets to destroy them. 
Ice tablets freeze some parts of the board, so you can’t match those tiles. Match three or more tiles above the ice tablet to unfreeze them.
  Some tiles are locked by a chain or a double chain which prevents them from moving. Break chains by making a match with the tile under it.
  Some levels have Skulls. Avoid matching Skull tiles as they add extra marble tablets on the board.

Tips & Tricks

 

  • Match of four, five or more tiles gives you more resources!

 

  • Start a level by making moves at the bottom of the board. The matches made at the bottom may create a cascade of matches at the top.

 

  • The quicker you finish the level the larger time bonus you receive. Time bonus adds to the resources you need the most.

 

  • New buildings will give you tiles that are more valuable and unlock new bonuses.

 

  • Point your mouse cursor over the buildings in the city for more information about them.

 

  • The faster you build the city of Rome the more chances you have to build the Statue of Jupiter!

 

  • You get a SUPER ARROW every time you match of five or more tiles. Move SUPER ARROW in any direction to activate it and blow up surrounding tiles.

 

  • You get a COMBO every time you make two match-threes with different types of tiles in one move.

 

  • Try to complete a level with an available bonus because it will come in handy on the harder ones.

 

  • If you don’t select a bonus in Tourney Mode, you play with four types of tiles on the board instead of five, which makes it easier to create matches and finish the level faster.

 

  • Use bonuses as soon as they are available in Blitz Mode. They add a lot of time to your timer.

 

  • The better you play Adventure Mode, the more options you have in Tourney and Blitz Modes. For example:

Blitz Mode - New tiles and bonuses are unlocked on the same levels that you unlocked them in Adventure mode. For example, if you receive the hammer in level 2 in Adventure Mode, you'll receive it in level 2 of Blitz Mode.

Tourney Mode - New bonuses are available based on your progress in Adventure Mode. For example, you won't be able to use lightning as a bonus until you've unlocked it in Adventure Mode.

 

  • Water in the jug does not go down when a hint or award pop-up window appears. Feel free to take breath.

 

  • If you start a new game using the same name used in a previous game, it will destroy your city. However, if you start the game over using the same name -- click the “Eye” button in the main menu to see your already built city.

 

  • You can view and admire your city anytime while playing a level. Click the round “City View” button in the upper right corner of the screen.
