“7 Wonders of the Ancient World” is a puzzle game which recreates very well the ancient world, where you have to build the seven wonders of the world. It doesn’t sound simple, right? So, how do you do that? Let’s take a look at the game.
The objective of “7 Wonders of the Ancient World” is to create matches of three in a row (or more) tiles, by swapping the correct tiles on the board. To do that, click on the tiles you want to swap. When you create the match, those tiles disappear and the tiles above them fall down. The holes created are automatically occupied by new tiles. If a new match occurs, a chain reaction is triggered and you’ll get points much faster. As you progress on the game, you’ll be progressing in your journey from the Giza pyramid to the Hanging gardens of Babylon.
