Awem studio announces the release of version 1.0 of Cradle Of Persia, an astonishing match 3 puzzle that lets you become the creator of the greatest architectural treasures of Persia. Use your wits to build some of the most amazing monuments in the Middle East history.

The Earth has known many great empires, but none of them had as many tales as Persia. The legends say it was a place of amazing architecture and culture, the land of golden palaces and almighty genii. The story of the Persian kingdom had its rises and downfalls and composed of several epochs. And it's is your destiny to guide Persian people towards prosperity and wealth with your final goal of possessing the greatest artifact you can ever imagine. You are to restore some of the most significant places on the Persian map, solving intriguing puzzles to find out what's hidden behind the sacred doors of the Cradle of Persia. And so your journey begins.

Welcome to Persepolis, this is where you start off. It's the capital of the Empire but there's little left of its former glory, the precious pearl of Persia has turned into faded ruins. The only hope to restore the noble city is to collect scattered resources presented by tiles. To do so, you need to link three or more similar tiles by clicking on the first piece and dragging cursor over the adjacent ones. But to get the job done, you also need to get rid of all marble plaques underlying some tiles. That won't be easy with all the obstacles to face with, such as chains, boxes and walls preventing tiles from sealing. There's also a timer giving extra challenge to the player.

As there are plenty of obstacles standing on your way, there are even more means to avoid them. Cradle Of Persia awards nice matching with bonuses. At first you can only use dynamite but as the game progresses you will gradually enlarge your collection up to eight bonuses, facilitating your challenge in various ways. That includes the power of lightning, hourglasses, magic wands, etc. Moreover, you can double the fun by upgrading bonuses by playing well and make series of strikes using several bonuses together.

Still, there's much more to do after you handle a puzzle. Cradle Of Persia wouldn't be so extremely addictive without the city construction part. Certain types of tiles bring you resources that may be spent on erecting various structures, each giving you some sort of advantage for the upcoming challenges. You decide how to rebuild the city and select which buildings should appear. This feature has a serious impact on the gameplay - to success in restoring the city you have to remember gathering resources even when the timer rushes fiercely.

In Cradle Of Persia, it takes a long road to fulfill your role, but the prize for your effort is great. On your path comprised of over 100 levels you will witness 7 historical epochs and reveal 20 most valuable architectural treasures of Persia, and finally, discover the secret of the Cradle of Persia. Altogether the game offers a good old match 3 entertainment with impeccable visuals and a catching background story. Make the history of Persia with your own hands.
