Tivoli Amusement Park is one of the oldest and most famous amusement parks in the world. Situated in Copenhagen, Denmark the park plays host to a wide range of classic and more modern attractions.
Now, thanks to developers Pointvoucher, everyone with an iPhone or iPad can get the Tivoli experience with this interesting match three puzzle game, which allows you to sample some of the sights and sounds of the park in a stylish way.
Tivoli Puzzle is a match three puzzler that is gravity based, so anyone that has played a game in this style will be instantly familiar with the gameplay. Players must match rows or columns of three or more matching symbols to make those selected disappear, increasing your score, but also using up a precious move.
The game has a map screen based around different locations in the park, and you unlock more locations and levels as you compete each stage. Your guide is the park attendant, a mustachioed fellow with a happy attitude.
Here, straight from the developer, are the app’s best features:
● Experience the world-famous Tivoli Gardens, it’s attractions and amazing history right on your mobile device
● Unique Match3 game design utilizing Gravity
● Beautiful art and animations that in a unique way matches Tivoli’s design language
● Amazing in-game animations
● High entertainment level including advanced elements, boosters and sounds
● Earn loyalty points to buy real products in and outside the Gardens
● The game will continue to develop with new attractions, levels and surprises
The first thing that will strike you about the game are the completely unique visuals. The characters have obviously had a lot of love and care put into their creation, and the whole park map looks like a 1920s painting, with bright colours and a clear design focus intended to give the game a flavour all of its own. It succeeds in this aim, and is really very good-looking, so credit to the developers.
The animation and music deserve special mention, as well. The game actually plays nicely, with levels that flow pretty well, for the most part. There are special abilities available, and extra lives which can be boosted by optional in-app purchases, but nothing too in-your-face.
A neat extra feature is the ability to win real voucher codes that can be redeemed for actual items when you visit the park, which is great incentive if you are intending to visit Copenhagen, and might even be something that will persuade people to go there. Everyone loves a freebie, especially if they win it in a video game.
Overall with a great visual design, decent gameplay and some cool real life rewards, Tivoli Puzzle is more than worthy of a second look.
