Saber's Edge is strategical match-3, turn-based game with RPG elements. The player chooses four characters from a larger selection to do turn-based battles with multiple enemies. The key to control them is connecting runes of same type; the bigger number of connected runes, the bigger the combo. The player starts with Captain and his crew, but every few battles he gets a chance to hire someone new and differentiate the team. Tiles from different characters can be connected to create combos. Focus tiles can be used to perform better and special runes are used to unlock gold and additional runes.
The battles are shown in 3D near the top of the screen while the bottom part holds the board with the runes. Each character has its own board, by selecting a different one it rotates left or right to the corresponding board. The game is free-to-play and supports in-app purchases.
