POSITIVES: LOVE the play of this game -- the sound of the blocks, the alluring graphics, the fact that you're really challenging yourself to think quicker, play better. I highly recommend it. NEGATIVES: ONE, the voice is great in the form of one-word positive reinforcements, but the longer phrases need to go as they are meaningless after hearing them repeatedly. TWO, there appears to be a mismatch between the voice saying "Only two more to go" and the end of that play session. It's an obvious boo-boo that keeps happening more often the more I played. For example, after already successfully winning the level, it's just then telling me I have two more to go. THREE, I still haven't figured out what pieces to pop or actions I need to do to proactively strategize getting the "one" or "two" more to go -- gone. I acknowledge the specialty pieces, but haven't found a consistency in zapping a certain amount or kind of them to know if I'm doing right or wrong toward achieving the equivalent of what "one" or "two" to go is. What to pop, how many, and when, isn't clear to me. NONE of this will stop me from playing it for now. But it does need a little tweaking to make it suitable for superlong-term play. I know I'm very fussy about some details, but I DO LOVE THIS GAME! Fix it, and you HAVE A WINNER!

If you're looking for a new match-3 challenge, try Spooky Runes.

I really enjoy this game! Like the option of timed or not. Is challenging enough to make it interesting, but not too hard. Putting it on timed mode is much harder for me. I love the concept, especially when only some of the blocks in a match 3 will disolve, but others take another match- this leaves blocks in some difficult places. The only negative is her voice saying the same thing over and over- wish there was a way to mute her but not the other sounds.

Wonderful game! A mix between match three, tetris and scrabble. It takes just a few minutes to figure out, then you're hooked. The power up are different and fun to use. Not really a Halloween seasonal game - but a year round fun challenge.

I like the game for the 'think about what you are doing' aspect. Another thing is that if you are not constantly thinking about each move you make before you click for the next set of runes, you will make the mistake of not having a set in the right position for the next move. Not critical, but it can make for interesting play with the next set. Graphics are really good, but the voice over could do with a few different phrases of encouragement. Overall though, I would certainly recommend everyone give the game a try. It can become very addictive if you let it.

Finally! A new twist on the match-3 game! This requires some thought and the ability to place and/or rotate your matches to get the biggest bang - downloaded it at work for lunch break and the next time I looked up .... well let's say more than lunch had passed.

I found this to be a very enjoyable game. It has a fresh concept on the math three genre and it plays very well. The graphics are beautiful and varied so it stays attractive at each level. The music is well matched to the game idea and is a plus instead of being annoying. Game sounds also are appropriate and add to the enjoyment. I like math three games and found I was quickly enchanted by this one. Really young children might find this too difficult to play on their own but an older child that has played match three games that were tailored for the younger player would probably enjoy the game for it's new challenge. I would say give it a try, you might find it to be your new favorite match three.
