Popular Facebook game Pet Rescue Saga finally brought its addictive match-up puzzles to iOS and Android. Candy Crush Saga fans will find certain parts of the game familiar since it borrows a handful of concepts from the aforementioned smash hit. Newcomers may need some advice, so we put together a beginner's guide to help them beat their friends.

-You only have five lives and lose one for each failed puzzle. When lives run out, you can purchase five for $0.99 or wait for a refill.

-You can ask Facebook friends for lives and vice versa, just like Candy Crush Saga.

-You can request lives before playing a puzzle. Select the desired level and tap the heart icon to the right of your friends' Facebook photos along the bottom of the screen.

-You don't need to eliminate all blocks from the screen to clear a puzzle. That said, pay close attention to each puzzle's goals. These may include rescuing seven pets or scoring a set number of points.

-Boosters like Color Pop and Block Buster are there to make puzzles easier. Just don't waste them. Otherwise you'll need to buy more.

-Some puzzles only provide you with a certain number of lives. Don't be wasteful. Running out of lives means game over.

-The Column Blaster is great for clearing blocks of different colors. Drag the rocket (lower right) to the desired location and make sure it's in the correct place before launching it.
