Eerie and delightful
I tried thisd game and I really liked it. (those are actual futhark runes they are using in the game)This brain teeaser is a great , relaxing , spookily themed game the whole family can enjoy. If your looking for something alittle different that regular match 3's , or like to collect any spooky game you find (me on both accounts) then you'll love this game!

Halloween and Runes Go Hand in Hand
I loved playing this game so much I couldn't believe it when the hour demo was over - definitely got my personal "wow' factor (when the demo ends and my reaction is "NO! NOT YET!") LOL. I
This is played exactly like the other versions of this game except for a few major changes. One, this has a strictly Halloween background and soundtrack. Two, the bonuses were far better. And, three, the relaxed mode was just that, relaxed, no timers. Just the way I like to play my games.
This is definitely on my wish list this coming Halloween. I encourage everyone to try this game. Especially if you've planned the other versions of this game (i.e., Runes of Avalon). If you liked those games - you'll love this one.

this game was fun at first but got boring over time.

Took the best of the previous one and ruined it
I loved "Runes of Avalon 2" and have played it over and over, despite the stupid puzzle at the end of rounds, and the awful "try to remember the runes I'm flashing at you" part. I kept wishing the next version would get rid of that annoying stuff.
Well, it did. BUT, there is no longer a map which tells you how far you have progressed in the game, and how far you have to go! So, you are just doing Rune puzzles over and over and over, although progressively harder puzzles (like the last game). But, what's the point if you don't have any sense of achievement? Maybe that's what this needs - some sort of achievement trophies.
And, to top it all off, "Spooky Runes" uses the SAME VOICE AND DIALOG that they used in "Runes of Avalon 2"! There is nothing spooky about it. If I hear "Your strength gives me courage" one more time... I'll delete the game. Oh wait, I already did.
There is absolutely nothing spooky about this game. They just rolled out the old one, minus a few things. Avoid it, avoid it!
P.S. I hope the developers read this and try this again (because I love the Runes part of the game). BUT please, if you are going to call it "Spooky" - make that part of the game! And toss in some achievement trophies, and voices that go along with that.
