Spooky Runes is a tile matching game with a Halloween theme. You will have from one to four tiles and must place them on the board so as to create rows of three or more of the same colored tile. Clearing these tiles fills up vials on the left of the screen. When the vials are full, the level is over. Pressing the right mouse button rotates the tiles. Later in the game, you will receive the Amulet of Spells that, when powered by runes, will let you select a spell at any time to use like Fire that clears in a large plus-sign shaped area or bombs that clear a five-by-five area.
