Ice Puzzle Deluxe is a match-3 puzzle game where players have to match various types of precious stones in order to remove them from the game grid. At the start of each level, the player is presented with a unique game grid full of colored gems. Players must use their mouse to drag the rows and columns in order to create matches of three or more gems of the same type. Animals, such as polar bears and dolphins are then released from ice cubes where they are encased. Bonus points are awarded to the player whenever animals are freed.
The game comes in three different game modes for a unique gameplay.
• Logic Mode – In Logic Mode, players must create gem matches in order to match images of the solution.
• Quest Mode – In Quest Mode, the player’s goal is to remove all the frozen animals from the game grid.
• Relax Mode – In this game mode, the player can practice matching gems without time constraints.
Ice Puzzle Deluxe also features different power ups that can be used in order to help the player win the game faster. These power ups appear on the game grid and can be collected by the player.
