Description

A fast paced horizontal match-3 puzzle game fused with strategy and RPG elements.

Combat opponents by matching runes (gems) that flow along the Fatestream (playing area on the screen). Use the unique power of your four heroes to win each battle (four colours of gems the player uses). Three chargers form to create a striker; a striker does damage to the opponent. Attacks can be chained together for increased damage or to trigger powerful special attacks. An activated striker will combine the power of other strikers or same coloured chargers in the same row or column; likewise enemy strikers and hexes are destroyed in the process.

Defend against hexes that the opponents insert into the Fatestream, for example an enemy striker that is cursed can only be destroyed by a hero striker of the same colour. The longer each battle takes, the faster the Fatestream moves and the more difficult the arrangement of incoming runes.

The game includes a few features that can be unlocked such as a Bestiary that opens a corresponding entry as you beat an enemy or encounter an enemy hex. Additionally, four bonus soundtracks that can be unlocked when the game is won.

Endless Mode provides a convenient way to warm up before continuing with a regular saved game.
