Inspired by games such as Bejeweled and Tetris, and adding the set and run rules from the classic card game, Rummycomb is an addictive token-matching puzzler with the Leda twist. Played over a hexagonal rather than square grid, allowing for more ways of linking the tokens. You can match tokens based on colour or on suit – or even both – in a run. What’s more, you can continue to select lines of connected tokens of any length, even changing direction, to build up huge sets that then explode in dramatic fashion.
Three gameplay modes are available:
- Challenge: You start the game with a full board and 1 minute on the clock. How high can you score before the time runs out?
- Endurance: You start the game with a partial board, and new tokens drop into play – slowly at first, but progressively faster. Drag tokens into empty columns to help match them up. How long can you last before the board fills up?
- Survival: You start the game with a full board and 30 seconds on the clock. As you clear tokens, the timer extends. How high can you score, and how long can you last?
Can you enclose hapless tokens inside a run for extra points? Can you stretch a selection all the way across the grid? Can you choose a set where every suit is represented – or, for the ultimate accolade, gather a rainbow set of every colour in the same suit? Dare you use the rams to raise a column of tokens to get a match, but risk blocking yourself in later? Score high for the ultimate achievement: staking your claim at the top of the worldwide leaderboards!
Choose your theme from a selection of classic card suits, simple shapes, flowers, even farm and zoo animals!
