AlphaBetty Saga is another word puzzle game to grace the Android platform. However, several gameplay elements bear no resemblance to popular games like Words on Tour or Ruzzle. The game offers new ways to use power-ups and has introduced a unique “crown” system that makes gameplay more engaging and fun. King is famous for its unique and addicting puzzle games. Its new game, called Diamond Diaries Saga, is now available on Android. Read this guide to find out how to complete levels and make the most out of power-ups.
By now you might be familiar with word puzzle games. But then new gameplay features will surely make your play time more complicated and frustrating. These AlphaBetty Saga tips, tricks and cheats will help you complete levels faster, create longer words and make the most of boosters and crowns:
How to Make the Most of Crowns
A crown appears on a random tile soon after creating a 4-letter word. A crowned tile can be very useful in removing a random tile below cheese chunks or can be used to pop bubbles.
You will need to create a crowned tile first and then use the same tile to make another word if you want to remove a random tile from the game board. Crowned tiles saves moves and can get rid of cheese pieces or bubbles faster. Follow these steps to make the most of crowns:
Make as many 4-letter words as possible to create crowned tiles.
Next, try to create 4-letter words using those tiles. Doing this will not only remove a random tile below a cheese or pop a bubble, but also create another crowned tile. Repeat the same procedure to create extra crowned tiles. This way you won’t fall short of these special tiles.
You may create a 3-letter word using a crowned tile, but it is recommended to create 4-letter word. Create 3-lettered words using a crowned tile when you can’t create a 4-letter word or when there are two crowned tiles placed side-by-side.
Use Word Builders to Create Longer Words
There’s one way to cheat at AlphaBetty Saga – a word builder. There are several word builders available online. I use Scrabblewordmaker.net to get an idea about the number of words I can make out of a set of letter tiles on the game board. A word builder will provide plenty of words, but only a few words can be used in this game. Let me explain with an example:
Choose a set of adjacent letter tiles on the game board. You can choose a square block or rectangular block of letter tiles. See the above screenshot.
Go to Scrabblewordmaker.net and enter those letters on the search box. You can enter a maximum of 15 letters and a “?” if there’s a blank tile. Press the Search button The word builder will return 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 letter words.
Not all words can be created on the game board with the words returned by Scrabblewordmaker. However, you may find some words. In this example, words like GAFF, DRAFF and RAFF can be created on the game board.
An online word builder can be of immense help if you are clueless and can’t find any words on the game board. However bear in mind that only a few words can be created from the big list of word returned by it.
When Should You Use the Shuffle Booster?
The shuffle booster is probably the only free booster that can be used several times without paying real money or gold. However, you will need to create words to fill it up.
Use the shuffle booster only when you can’t create longer words or there are too many X, Z, or QU tiles close to each other. The shuffle booster will reshuffle the game board; although that does not guarantee that you will have a more word creation-friendly game board.
Tap on the shuffle booster when it starts to glow. Do not, I repeat do not tap on this booster when a small number appears on it. The number appearing on the booster is actually the number of times you can use it without filling it up.
Tips to Use Line Blasters
The longer the word, the more powerful a line blaster will be. The minimum number of tiles to create a line blaster tile is 5. A line blaster tile’s color changes to purple. Before using one, look at the arrows on a line blaster tile. Arrows on the left and right indicate a horizontal line blast whereas arrows on the top and bottom indicate a vertical line blast. Use a line blaster only when you feel that maximum titles can be removed with it.
In later levels, you can use line blaster boosters. These boosters will not only let you choose a letter tile to place line blasters, but also the direction of the blast (vertical, horizontal or diagonal). You can use up to 3 line blast boosters for free and then need to spend gold for any additional booster.
Save the free 50 gold for harder levels. Gold can be used on moves, lives and boosters. I would recommend using free gold on boosters or moves, but only when you can’t solve a harder level event after multiple tries.
Look for plural forms of words and suffixes like “-ed”. This way, you will get rid of an extra letter from the game board. Finding plural forms of verbs will be easier than finding suffixes.
Take advantage of blank tiles and create longer words using them.
Take your time. Don’t be in a hurry. The same 3-letter word that you just created could have been made into something longer by adding more adjacent letters to it. Your first priority should be to search for 5-letter words. If you can’t find any, look for 4-letter words and finally 3-letter words.
Didn’t earn 3 stars in the previous level? Well, you can go back and replay levels to earn more stars. However, bear in mind that if you fail to solve a level, you will lose a heart.
