The latest installment on the DragonScales series is now available on Steam: DragonScales 5: The Frozen Tomb. A few lovely players have been asking about taking previous DragonScales games to Steam. That won’t be happening for a while, but thank you for your interest.
Good news! Our newest game DragonScales 5: The Frozen Tomb has reached #1 entry on casual game portal iWin.com. Yet more, DragonScales 5 clinched the top spot for all its 3 categories:
- Match 3
We know new and fantastic games are released every day, and these “top spots” are temporal things, but today we’ll enjoy our little victory. Thank you very much to all of you who made this possible!
Level 9-6 of DragonScales 4: Master Chambers demands a high level of dexterity with the game’s strategies. In the following, we present a possible solution.
1- First activate the top arrow (the one going upwards.) It’s essential not to activate the arrow going down (yet.)
2- Then play your scales in order to occupy the cells around the bomb strategically. We aim to activate the arrow going down and, in doing so, yield a combination to explode the bomb. In our example, notice that the two green scales (one of them having the bomb) will combine with the lone green scale we’ve placed at the bottom left. When the arrow is activated, a combination will be formed immediately, exploding the bomb.
3- That’s it for the hardest moves. Now it only remains to activate the other arrow to descend the bomb.
4- Explode the bomb.
5- Finally, activate the arrow and conquer the top red cross-scale.
In DragonScales 3 you’ll have to destroy some special monsters by using the Sacred Axe. Specifically, all the levels of World 15 are full of such pesky creatures. Destroying them is easy, though. Pay attention to the scales you receive to play. Some of such scales will contain a little axe. Try to place the scale with the little axe in a cell of a column containing a monster. Then continue playing to form a combination which includes the scale with the axe. When such combination is formed, the Sacred Axe will appear to smash the monster (see Figure 1.)
Further on, in Level 16, you’ll find the traditional DragonScales symbols on the board. To remove them simply form combinations on the cells with the symbols (see Figure 2.)
The key for level 13-7 of DragonScales 3 is to form a way to access the pink scale on the left side at the bottom. Our approach starts by removing the rocks surrounding the central arrow, identified in Figure 1. Remember: to remove rocks just form combinations in adjacent cells.
After removing the rocks, activate the arrow (Figure 2.)
Now focus on the 2 adjacent arrows, on the top row (Figure 3). Activate one of them.
The next step is to activate the bomb to break the block (Figures 4 and 5).
Finally, activate the arrow to lower the column and get access to the pink scale (Figure 6.)
All that remains is capturing the cross pink scales and getting 80 scales of any color.
Generally, we like to include 2 or 3 tricky levels in our DragonScales games. It’s the case for the “Moon Bar” level in DragonScales 1 or Level 3-12 in DragonScales 2. In DragonScales 3: Eternal Prophecy of Darkness we also have a few demanding boards. Level 9-8, for instance.
There are two tricky scales in Level 9-8 (see Image 1.) For both scales the key is to setup the required scales beforehand in order to form the match/combination exactly when the arrows are activated. To remove scale Tricky 1, first we have to place golden scales in the near tiles. When the two arrows are activated we should have already placed the golden scales we need, and the combination is done after the last of the two bottom-left arrows is activated.
For instance, in Image 2, we have already managed to place two regular golden scales near to the goal golden scale we want to remove (Tricky 1.) Images 3 to 8 only show a few of our plays to activate the arrows. But the important thing is that the 2 golden scales are already in the right place.
Regarding the scale labeled in Image 1 as Tricky 2: we have to follow a similar procedure. See Image 9. Just manage to place golden scales in the proper tiles, and then keep playing to activate the remaining arrow. See Images 9 to 11.
It’s fairly simple once you’ve figured the order in which scales should be removed. You’ll also need a bit of good luck with the scales you’ll get to play! 🙂

Hello again! If you’ve followed the tutorial to learn how to play NagiQ, and then played the demo (freely available here,) most likely you already finished all the free levels included with such demo version. Now, by purchasing the full version of NagiQ you’ll get access to all the islands of the game:
In the full version of the game each island will be immediately unlocked after you complete the previous one. Then you’ll be able to click on an island image to select a level to play. Notice that some levels introduce gameplay variants to keep the game fresh, fun and challenging!
Enjoy! And Happy New Year!
This is a little tutorial explaining how to play our first game, the challenging word game NagiQ. Things will be easier if we start with a screenshot of the first level:
Notice there’s a board, with some letters on it. Letter S and letter C. We refer to those starting letters as Mystic Letters.
How to play?
The rules are simple. Form a word (by typing it with your keyboard, or by clicking on the letters of the game’s permanent on-screen keyboard) and place it on the board with your mouse. For instance, type the word ‘star’ or ‘soap’… whatever. When you’re typing the word, the game will show a green verification mark to let you know that it will accept the word you’ve just typed.
OK, that’s it for forming words. Now you have to place such word on the board. And the word might be placed horizontally or vertically. Press the SPACE BAR on your keyboard to switch between horizontal and vertical style (alternatively, the on-screen keyboard has a special key for this task, if you prefer to use the mouse.)
Now that the word orientation is chosen, it’s time to place the word on the board. To do so, simply click on a board’s cell. However, there’s a very important rule:
Every new word you want to place on the board must include at least one of the letters ALREADY PLACED on the board.
That’s why our first word can be ‘star’ or ‘soap’, because such words include ‘s’, and our board already has a letter S. We could also start by forming the word ‘car’, because the board also has a letter C. We could also form the word ‘base’, because ‘base’ has an ‘s’. Or the word ‘case’, which has both ‘c’ and ‘s’. Whatever word you form, the important thing to remember is that such word must contain a letter already on the board.
Use your mouse to move your word around the board, and click to place it. You cannot place your word anywhere, though. You have to connect it to a letter already on the board. Simply move your word and ensure that a letter of your word overlaps a matching letter already on the board, e.g, if your word is ‘star’, ensure that the ‘s’ of ‘star’ overlaps the letter ‘S’ already on the board. When the word is well placed, the game will change the cells’ color to green. Then click to finally place your word on the board (Pro tip: you can press ENTER on your keyboard instead of a mouse click.)
And that’s all. Do you remember those Mystic Letters, S and C? Well, in order to win the level you’ll have to place your words properly, to ‘connect’ with ALL the Mystic Letters on the board.
Upcoming boards contain cookies to get hints, and each island of the game offers gameplay variants. But essentially, these are the core rules of NagiQ. Two little details:
- You cannot connect your new words directly to the Mystic Letters, except for the first word you place on a board. In other words, your first word might connect with any of the Mystic Letters S or C. But after you’ve placed your word, you next words must include letters of the words you’ve placed.
- Once you use a word, you cannot re-use it on the same board.
Let’s see a commented game to better understand the rules.
Combinations are endless. Have fun 🙂
