Hatchlings is an additive puzzler where the goal is to help Echo, The Gecko maintain the Great Hatchery by preparing magical creatures known as Hatchlings for their release into Crystelwell Forrest. To prepare the hatchery, you must line up three creatures vertically or horizontally using only the horizontal axis. Once at least three creatures are aligned they’ll disappear from the board.
