    Game Tips

    Check out these Call of Atlantis game tips to help increase your score and complete rounds faster:

    • Multiple matches of each type of tile will temporarily give you the power of the Amulet of Poseidon. Click on it when it becomes charged (glows) to eliminate a lot of random tiles in your current round. Note: The amulet only remains charged for a short time, so you will need to use it right away to take advantage of it..
    • The Bomb of Titans is a bonus item that allows you to target a specific section of tiles to be destroyed. Use it strategically in areas where you are having difficulty making matches.
    • Locked tiles can be troublesome. A good strategy is to unlock them early in the round before they drop to the bottom of the screen. If this happens, it is more difficult to match a line to remove the lock on it.
    • Heart tiles are a bonus item that gives you an extra life. Whenever these appear, be sure to obtain them before you get your last Atlantis relic piece that will complete your current match three round.
    • The Lightning of Zeus is another bonus item you can retrieve in the match three rounds. It can be used to destroy one type of tile. Use this strategically to help you retrieve relic pieces that are difficult to move (such as locked tile pieces). Note: If you are not careful with your tile selection, you may accidentally remove pieces that are needed.
