Legendary Swords

Swords up for a legendary new mini-game ⚔️

Hi there, Poptropicans! As was hinted at recently, a new mini-game—inspired by the long-lost Legendary Swords action quest—is here!

Though it’s quite different from the original action quest itself, it’s fun and addicting nonetheless. To access the new Legendary Swords: Match 3 game, go to your messages or find it on the map. Plus, read on for a full guide on how to beat it below!

When you start, you’ll be faced with a large board filled with different types of robot heads, the villain E. Vile, and other items from the original Legendary Swords, as well as some new bug-eyed creatures.

The objective of the game is to match three or more of the same item in a row as many times as you can to gain points throughout three rounds. You’ll see a time bar up in the corner. Each round gives you 60 seconds to gain as many points as you can, so move quickly!

To gain points, swipe an item so that it matches up in a row with two or more of the same items. For an example, take a look at this vertical row of one-eyed robots:

Three robots are stacked in a row. One robot, however, is sitting next to the row instead of in it. Swiping the odd robot into the empty space in the row next to it will award a good number of points. The more items collected in a row, the more points will be earned!

But creating rows of items isn’t the only way to gain points. As you match more rows and score more points, a small blue bar in the upper left alongside an image of your Poptropican will fill up, and the picture will start to pulse. When you see your picture pulsing, click on it for a surge of extra points, as well as an extra ten seconds on the clock!

Once you’ve clicked on it, the blue bar will empty and the Poptropican will stop pulsing. Keep matching rows and gaining points to fill the bar up again as many times as you can!

Another good way to gain more points and time is using swords. There are two types of swords that sometimes come up: the Rusty Relic, which will give you at least a few extra seconds and points, and the Bolt, which is even stronger than the Relic and will give you even more time and points. These swords don’t need to be matched up in a row like normal items, so swipe them any which way to collect your points and time.

At the end of the three rounds, you’ll be shown a list of the top three ranking scores, along with your own score!

2nd place — not bad! 😎

Now you’re ready to get out there and master this mini-game! What did you all think of Legendary Swords: Match 3? Was it the fun challenge you’d been hoping for, or was it too poor of a representation of the original mini-quest to please you?
