Handy Craft is a game about rebuilding a ruined shack. How do you do that? Why by matching stuff in quick puzzling challenges of course. Just like you would if you were fixing a shack in the real world.
The game might seem simple, but there are things you’ll need to learn if you want to get the most out of it. And that’s where this guide comes in. Use these strategies and you’ll be hammering in those nails in no time flat.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve just picked up your first saw or you’ve already created a whole bunch of bombs in the matching sections, there’s going to be something here to help you out. Here are the best hints, tips and cheats for Handy Craft.
You need stars to complete tasks
You’re going to need to collect stars in order to get on with sprucing up your new house. The only way to get them is by completing the match-stuff levels. You’ll get one star for finishing a level. There’s no need to hoard them either – when you’ve got a star you should use it.
Check your goals
Every time you’re matching stuff you’re going to have a different goal. Usually it involves clearing a set number of items from the board. Your goal is always in the top left of the screen so check it out and make sure you’re working towards it.
Watch the move limits
Every level has a limit to the number of moves you can make before you fail. You can see it in the top right or the screen. Make sure you’re making moves that are going to help you achieve your goal, otherwise you might find yourself running out.
Be smart with your specials
When you match shapes in specific ways you’ll create special moves on the board. These can be incredibly useful, but you need to make sure you’re using them in the best ways possible. When you’ve created a special, take a moment to think about how you can use it to get closer to your goals.
Learn what the different tiles do
There are plenty of different tiles – from mail boxes to patches of grass – and they all react to matches in different way. Learn how they work and how you need to engage with them and you’ll be one step closer to clearing the board and reaching your goals.
