What had started as an entry for a weekend competition back in April of 2011 has turned into CodeDaemons Studio’s first commercial release. Rune Masters gives the match-3 puzzle genre an unique twist with some RPG elements.

In Rune Masters, players will fight their enemies using the ancient magic within the gems to wipe out their opponents. There are many features presented in the title, including two modes: Classic and Story. There are six playable characters, each with their own backstory and unique abilities, to choose from. Below is the full list of features:

  • 6 playable characters, each with different story and special ability
  • 8 mighty bosses to beat on your way to become the Rune Master
  • 15 skillful enemies to defeat
  •  37 different, useful items divided into 3 categories: weapons, amulets and armors
  • 2 game modes: story mode and classic mode
  • Amazing soundtrack and sound effects by Chris Sinnott
  • Ultra juicy and responsive gameplay
  • Real time battles using match-3 mechanics
  • Innovative spells mechanics including 8 different spells from 4 elements: Fire, Water, Earth and Nature

From the trailer provided on the game’s page, it looks like CodeDaemons Studio has a rather novel game on their hands. Fans of such titles as Puzzle Quest might want to check out Rune Masters. Currently, the puzzle and RPG hybrid is available only for Windows on the Desura site. However, future plans to make it accessible for Mac and Linux users are in the works. There is a demo available to download for those who might want to try it out before purchasing the game.
