Unlike your usual Match 3 game, you don’t swap gems with each other in order to make matches. What you do instead is to look at the gems at the bottom of the board - this is the slot machine reel. Each gem can only be sent to their specific column. You pick the spot where you place the gem in order for it to complete a match.
If you’re able to use all six gems in the reel to make matches on their respective columns, then you get to win a free Spin. The Spin represents the “move” feature that is found in other Match 3 games - it is simply an adaptation of the mechanic to the slot machine concept of Cascade.
For each level, you receive a specific number of spins that you can use in order to reach each level’s goals. Spins are activated when there are no more matches to be made from the remaining gems on the bottom reel. When the number of spins you have are used up and you have not met your goals yet, the level is considered lost and you’ll have to try again.
Initiating a level will consume a Heart. This Heart is regained every time you finish a level. If you’re able to finish all levels the whole time that you’re playing, then you don’t lose a Heart at all. You only lose one if you’re unable to finish a level with a win, and you want to try again.
There are various goals you’ll have to meet when playing Cascade. First, you have to reach a certain number of points. Second, you have to remove a specific number of obstacles like the cloudy gems while still working to attain a certain score.
You can attain your goals faster with burst gems. These are made by making matches of more than five gems. It doesn’t even have to be in a straight line; as long as the gems are nestled close together, it can be considered a match.
Burst gems explode when they are made part of a match. They can either burst horizontally, taking away all gems in a row, or vertically, in which case gems are eliminated by columns. There’s also the area burst gem, which explodes and decimates gems in a box of a specific size.
