RuniX is a tile matching game, but with a twist! Of course, the tiles must be the same design in order to match them and remove them from the game. However, there must also be a clear path between the tiles. The definition of a clear path is: you must be able to draw a line between the two tiles that have no more than two bends in it. The game will show you the path choosen after a valid match -- it won't take long to get the hang of it!

Games Within Games

RuniX includes several variations on the basic game as well as many different and lovely sets of runes. Changing to a new game variant will alter the rules of the game. Changing to a new tile set will alter the difficulty of matching the runes. The combination of game world and rune set makes for dozens of different combinations. We also have an Easy - Average - Hard preference selection to make the game even more flexible!
