The mobile game Merge Magic! is a perfect way to pass the time. With its cute graphics and serene soundtrack, it allows you to solve puzzles by merging elements together. But don't let the first impression fool you; the game is full of difficulties and obstacles. In order to progress as quickly as possible, to succeed in successive levels and to build a magic garden worthy of the name, we advise beginners to follow these few tips. Everyone is free to go at their own pace, but to maximize your results and not waste any resources, try to apply our essential Merge Magic tips as much as possible.
Players of Merge Dragons! players should find some familiar tips. Both games share the same development studio (Gram Games) and have several common mechanics. However, there are obviously differences and our tips will be useful to both novices and experienced players!
Give top priority to mergers of 5 elements
Merge Magic belongs to the family of puzzle games. As in many match-3 games, you just have to combine at least 3 identical elements to merge them into a new element of higher rank. This basic principle applies to absolutely everything you will encounter in the game: Egg, Blessed Flower, Coin or Star. But to maximize your return, it is recommended that you merge 5 items.
By merging 5 level 1 items, you will get 2 level 2 items thus making a theoretical saving of 1 item. This saving may seem trivial when talking about lower ranked items. But by going up the chain of mergers, small streams become very large rivers! This manipulation requires a bit of organization and reflection but remains a must among Merge Magic tricks 😉
Modify its fusion parameters in the garden
Now that you know that the number 5 is the lucky number on Merge Magic ! It is not mandatory, and we advise beginners to keep the default settings to avoid making mistakes. The modifications are mainly for tryharders looking for optimization.
- Overlap on/off: Overlap is disabled as standard, saving a few thousandths of a second on each merge. However, experienced players prefer to enable the option. This prevents mistakes and accidental merges.
- Enable/disable chain reactions: Chain reactions allow you to make combos and earn bonus points. However, they can get in the way of your goal of maximizing your 5-element fusions. To avoid accidents, experienced players disable the option.
- Prefer fusion by 5: the name is attractive and will seduce players who absolutely want to do fusion by 5, like good students. The problem is that it's not always possible and that you don't always have the same 5 elements at hand. To avoid wasting time by activating/deactivating the option, we prefer not to use this parameter. Just be careful and you should already limit the risks by managing your overlap and chain reaction settings.
💡 A good tip that might come in handy: Merge Magic is also playable on PC! It's much more comfortable to play on a big screen and with your mouse. And above all, really more convenient to avoid making merge mistakes!
Return regularly to your Merge Magic Garden!
Progress in Merge Magic! can be measured by your progress through the different levels. But the most important thing is surely the progress of your magic garden. This is the base camp where you can fully express your inventiveness and develop your magical creatures. It is therefore important to visit it regularly. On the one hand, because it's in the Garden that you can collect the rewards obtained in the different levels. On the other hand, because your magical beasts can collect resources, but must rest regularly before continuing to work. The trick is to start each of your game sessions in your garden. Then use your compasses in the classic levels, and come back to your garden to enjoy your faithful workers again!
Also, don't forget to get your daily chest to get free resources 🎁. NPCs will also regularly offer you more or less interesting trades.
Build and upgrade huts and coin stores
Huts and coin stores can only be found in your Magic Garden. Since they are not visible in the normal levels, their importance is not obvious. However, they are the most important buildings in your garden and you should invest in them from the start!
- Huts : They allow your magical creatures to rest. Fairies, Satyrs or Centaurs need a break, they can't constantly collect resources. Having extra huts reduces the amount of time they have to wait and be idle.
- Coin Reserves: These increase your storage capacity. This prevents wastage during normal levels, should you go over the limit. In Merge Magic! there's no need to be stingy, so feel free to make regular purchases. Stashes also passively produce coins, which you can collect by clicking on them.
Tips on magical creatures
Magical creatures are your faithful companions in adventure. Each one belongs to a specific class with special characteristics. Take them into account when you give them a task.
- Builders : build faster.
- Defenders : attack faster and more effectively.
- Harvesters : Harvest resources faster.
- Workers : These creatures have more endurance and rest less.
- Sprinters: These creatures move faster.
- Trophies : creatures that look nice and shine by their rarity (events). They have no special characteristics.
Merge Magic tips: all about compasses
The garden is still accessible, but to play in the normal and challenging levels, you need to have compasses. To optimize your progress you will have to learn how to manage your stock while carefully planning your game sessions. A player automatically loads one compass per hour and can hold a maximum of 7 compasses, and can watch up to 5 video ads per day to earn an additional 5 free compasses.
The other solution is to buy them for 8 gems. The price seems reasonable, but we generally prefer to save these precious gems to use them for other more useful purposes (mystery nests or treasures).
Quick navigation and double tap
To quickly finish the levels and especially to succeed in the challenge levels, it is necessary to be fluid in its handling. The speed of execution comes into play, but you must not lose precision either at the risk of making mistakes. It is therefore preferable to unlock the screen to navigate quickly in the largest levels. Unlocking the screen also allows you to zoom in and out as needed. The lock function is only useful on very rare occasions when you are afraid of shaking when making an important merge.
To navigate quickly, you'll also need to master the double tap. This isn't about doing a double headshot, but about quickly ordering your workers to harvest a resource. This technique allows you to automatically assign one of your creatures without having to search for it on your screen. It saves a lot of time but does not allow you to choose the worker in question.
Merge Magic tricks from the vault
On the world map, in the upper left corner of the interface, you will find the icon that allows you to open your treasure chest. The chests are unlocked as you progress and allow you to gain precious resources that can be used in your magic garden. To benefit from them, you must remember to unlock them (which takes time) and especially to open them once the waiting period is over. Too many chests are left abandoned and opened with a delay. It's not a big deal in itself, but knowing that you can only store 3 chests at a time, it's a shame to waste time!
A small green light indicates whether a safe is ready to be opened. The purple locations indicate that the safe is locked or in the process of being unlocked.
Maximize resources of normal levels
A normal level is not always fun since the difficulties are generally limited. However, this is not a reason to be picky. It still gives interesting resources. To maximize your earnings, it is therefore advisable to take your time without necessarily rushing straight to the main objective. The secondary objectives are not mandatory, but they offer additionalrewards when you succeed. Also, always remember to collect small gold coins and treasure chests before completing the level.
It is also possible to redo a level already finished since the first three achievements offer rewards. So don't hesitate to farm!
We've reached the end of this Merge Magic! guide. With these tips, you'll be able to progress quickly through the game and build a beautiful magic garden. The first few challenge levels as well as the first few normal levels should thus not pose any particular difficulties for you. 😎
