New celebrity-themed match-3 style mobile game puts a spin on the popular genre with a resort building mechanic and a gripping narrative

June 2, 2017 - São Paulo - Brazil - Tapps Games has released Starside, a match-3 style game for mobile platforms with city building elements and a robust storyline that follows the lives of several characters.

Imagine a secret island retreat sought by celebrities from the whole world. This exclusive resort is yours to run, so it’s up to you to make sure the place is ready to host its illustrious and very high-maintenance guests. You do that by beating match-3 levels to earn shells, which let you improve the resort facilities and unlock new chapters in your celebrity guests’ extraordinary lives.

You’ll be aided by Veronica Stern, the efficient concierge of Starside Resort, who knows everything about her famous guests and is always working to meet their needs. Veronica’s daily to-do list includes restoring withering gardens to blooming glory and transforming simple guest rooms into world-class accommodations, but there are times when she must go one step further to ensure the celebrities’ well-being. Be it helping an idol singer who hides a surprising secret or teaching a much needed lesson to a spoiled heir, Starside’s concierge is not afraid to get personally involved with the problems that weigh on her clients’ hearts.

The more you spruce up Starside Resort, the more renowned characters are attracted by its luxurious installations. There are rumours that even the Queen of an important European nation is seriously considering checking in!
