Ready to set out on a tile-matching adventure with your loyal pets?

To find Pet Battles, first login to your Boddle account and click the green Play button. You’ll be transported to the Library.

You can practice your math skills and have fun battling in Adventure Mode. Click on Green Grove to battle the Baddies. After you complete a map, the next one will unlock as well as a special hard-mode version of the one you just beat!

After completing Green Grove, you will unlock matchmaking - a ranked game mode where you battle against players worldwide! If you want to challenge a friend or classmate to a battle instead, click on the Battle a Buddy button to select from your Buddy List.

When it’s your turn to start matching puzzle pieces, try to match as many of one color element as you can! The four elements are: fire, water, grass, and electricity! You can match up, down, left, right, and diagonal. The longer your streak, the stronger the attack will be against your opponent. Your energy is shown at the bottom of the board. Once it runs out, answer a question to refuel and unlock the board for more attacks!

Each pet on your team corresponds to one of the elements, and that pet will send the attack. For example, if you have a grass-type Mush, and make a grass match, the Mush will attack and the puzzle pieces will charge up Mush’s special ability.

Based on your pet's element type, your pet could do more or less damage to another pet. Ever played “rock, paper, scissors” before? It’s just like that!

Baddies are aligned with different elements, just like pets are. So, you can get damage bonuses by targeting the Baddies who are weak to certain elements. If you’re not sure which element a pet or baddie is, check out the element on their podium (it glows when you start making a match!).

Curious about your Pets' special abilities? Just click the yellow question mark icon next to any of your pets during a match, and you'll be able to watch a short video detailing not only the Pet's special ability, but also what happens when you make a Match 5 or Match 8 during battle.

Keep matching puzzle pieces and solving problems until you defeat the Baddie or your opponent, or they defeat you! Finish each adventure stage without losing any hearts for an extra cool reward!

Happy battling and good luck!
