Things that go ‘Boom!’ ~ Pet Rescue Firecrackers

imageOne of the most handy tools you have access to in Pet Rescue is the Firecracker, If you look to the bottom right of your screen you will find a little meter that needs to be fed with points, the bigger the combinations the better. Fill this meter by clearing bricks and a little firecracker appears, this little gem is very valuable, simply point it at the column you need to clear (like the one with the doe eyed puppy on top about to be tipped off) and this column including any metal boxes or glass cases will be destroyed..except for caged or locked bricks, they require unlocking first.


You can align your cracker with the correct column and select the green tick to fire!

The good news is pets apparently love fireworks and quite happily bounce through the explosion and scurry off to the bottom (*note this does not apply in real life, most dogs are severe pyrotechnophobes!). Learning how to create these firecrackers quickly and efficiently and knowing when to use them and when to hang on to them is perhaps one of the major skills of this game!

You dont have to use your Firecracker as soon as it appears, its not going anywhere but just keep in mind that you can only have one at a time, any further points you earn will not be stored in the meter. You can only start earning another cracker once the first one has been set off. Because of this I like to set off my crackers as they appear. If you have a pet suck on a ledge of earth or pipe you can bump him off by placing a firecracker up the column to its left (Don’t ask me why pets dont fall to the right!)

Setting off a cracker is simply a matter of either selecting the green tick, or if you change your mind and want to hang on to it just hit the red ‘X’. Keep in mind that the blocks dont always fall straight down, they have a tendency to cascade into the space, which can often spoil your groove if you are trying to set up some big combinations. If blocks are at the bottom of the board with nothing above them to fill in the space they scoot over (again to the left) and join up with any other remaining blocks . This is very handy to keep in mind especially when you need to clear a certain percentage of blocks out of the way to fulfil your objective.

General Pet Rescue hints and tip

imageIf you’ve committed to the Pet rescue voyage here are a few hints, tips and tricks to help you along your way!

  • imageIf you want a little love you have to give a little love! –  Spending the time to send your friends lives every time you log in (or a prompted to do so) is the best way to ensure your own mailbox will be bursting with sanity saving helpful love. Give a little get a little!
  • imageDon’t do everything you are told! – its just no fun..but its also relevant in this case, when you open up your pet saga game you are often met with a screen prompting you to send lives, moves or invites to friends…DO NOT send invites, seriously if someone is not playing by now they dont want to be, either that or they live under a rock. Send lives and moves to friends who are already playing, but sending out invites is just advertising for King and it upsets a lot of people, especially those who are not too tech savvy as they usually receive every notification as an email too.
  • imageUse your moves!  – Unlike Candy Crush and Papa Pear saga any left over moves in Pet Rescue saga don’t get turned into a points bonus when your objectives are completed, once your pets are rescued and your points objective is met that’s the end..thankyou for playing, move right along now! so if you  really want to earn those three stars I suggest you work your last  pet to the bottom and sit it on top of a fail proof group of blocks that you can clear with your very last move or if you have a firecracker to use you can always go with that.
  • imageKnock your blocks off!  –  Metal boxes are pains in the neck! seriously cheers for that! there are only two ways to remove them from the board to; blow them up or knock them off. Using a bomb you can clear up to four boxes at a time or try to leave them at the top of a column to be tipped off once the screen moves down. There is nothing more frustrating than battling your way to the bottom only to find you have a cute and fluffy perched on a box!

Pet Rescue Saga – Level 29


Level 29

Well judging by the pile of friends I have sprawled over the level 29 marker I’m going to make a judgement call and say its a tricky one. With an objective of clearing 99% of the blocks and earning 16 000 points I’m having flashbacks and remembering why this has become a pit stop of some length for so many.

Its not hard, its frustratingly hard! 

But If I can do it so can you, its just a matter of forward thinking and figuring out the consequences of our actions (wow I sound like my 10th grade teacher!)


Getting the bomb on the left down to the blocks is your first priority.

First of all Burst all the balloons on the very left until the bomb hits the wire cages, then blow it up! this will give you some headway. Work your way along until you lower the key to the locked up rocks, and release them once the key is free. Try and save your remaining balloons, they will come in handy soon. Once you have unlocked the row of rocks and they spirit off into the ether you may start popping balloons. You’ll notice that bursting a balloon can unlock a few cages at a time, but only by blowing up adjacent blocks, you are not bursting the blocks inside the cages but the ones next to it! Don’t go too silly once you have dropped the screen enough start to break open the cages from below, preserve as many balloons as possible…they always seem to come in handy, but keep that screen moving down.


Keys unlock bricks

This is not a level where your moves are limited so hit it, but dont forget about your firecrackers, use them wisely and remember that you cannot start earning another until the first one had been set off. If you have one on the board and a whole set up of big combinations ahead maybe just set it off and clear a little more. Remember the screen wont drop down if there are moves and blocks or balloons holding it up.


Having a bomb on the bottom can be very handy!

There are more keys below and firecrackers are perfect for freeing them. Keep your objective in mind as you go, dont find yourself on the bottom of the screen with a licorice all sorts bag of colored blocks left over and thinking ‘where are the pets?’ your aim is to clear 99% of the blocks ….doh! This means you can only have 1 left! Aim to keep colours together and if you can save a bomb for the bottom I assure you this will come in handy, inevitably you will end up with two blocks…yeah, did I mention frustrating?
