Description
rune gems is a unique style match 3 puzzle game. Pick up color tile creating 3 matches. It’s really that simple, but it’s a neat and unique approach to the match 3 genre that we think you’re going to like. it’s neither a Bejeweled nor a Diamond Dash clone, instead of having more in common with Mahjong/Shanghai than anything else. ----------------------------------------------- How to play: ● you have on your screen a tray holding 7 tiles that are populated from a game board. ● You tap a tile to make it go into your tray. The goal is to match every three colored tiles as quickly as possible from the game board, lest you fill up your 7 tile tray without any matching 3. ● Once you fail to have a matching group after putting down 7 tiles, you’ve failed. ----------------------------------------------- rune gems Features: ● The tiles are colorful and have a gemstone appearance to them. each tile board is different and varies from one to the next, giving the game a different flair for every level you play. ● rune gems is one of those games that’s perfect for picking up and playing for just a minute or two, or for a long time to waste the day away. Grab it and see how far you can get. ● Players have optional use of both “magic” and “time” runes to help them — the former automatically picks a good gem to take, while the latter allows for an “undo.” ----------------------------------------------- A little trick:
Since a grouping can NEVER be more than 3, is to simply match as many triplets as fast as possible for an escalating speed combo bonus...but be careful, if in your haste you end up tapping on 4 red pieces, that 4th piece will now sit on the tray clogging stuff up until you find it two more partners. So always be mindful of what you put on the tray and make sure you can match it off quickly or letting it clog the flow up a bit is worth it if it is blocking your access to many other tiles underneath. ----------------------------------------------- Reviews: “A match 3 puzzle game set on a Majong style puzzle game board.” - Appsaga.com “rune gems is an excellent, well-presented game, friendly to both long and short play sessions.” - insidemobileapps.com “The whole game is well executed and we really love to tap on one of the runes, for the animation is so smooth.” - fun2tap.com ----------------------------------------------- if you have any questions or concerns, please contact us: http://starsprite.com/ Have fun & enjoying rune gems!

I can’t get passed level 14-14 and I want to know if anyone has passed it.
Rune gems
by Meoooo111 on 2020/09/17 20:47
I’d give this a one star! On level 16-5 you never have the moves you should have. And you don’t reply to your reviews. So fix your game! Or I will delete it for good and all your others that u put out!so it looks like you are not fixing the game so I’m deleting the 3 games I have downloaded of yours. I gave you a chance to fix the game but no you haven’t. Others will do the same . People will get fed up. And they will do the same. There’s a lot other games that are much better. So keep your games. I’m out forever. Never will I put any games of yours on my ipads. GONE FOR GOOD!!
Meh
by Spncrs mum on 2020/06/04 08:20
The game itself is fun. So far, I have 2 issues. 1- there is no way to earn hints/help/restart. The only way is to buy them using real $. I’m ok with watching a video to earn like 3 of each. Or find a way for us to earn more. 2-some levels are too hard to earn 3 stars in such a short time (without using the hint/help). Other easier levels, I took my time, & still got 3 stars! It seems the harder levels should give more time to earn 3 stars. 3- take some lessons from the tile masters game app. That one is very good I think.

Love the game, colorful, a challenge and different!
How do you turn the music off
by OneSassyB on 2020/03/11 23:28
Well after playing for a while, this game is just super frustrating. Not only can you not turn off the annoying music, but levels are just not possible to pass. I’ve been playing the same level for two days and it’s just not possible to get thru, you never get the one tile you need to make a match. Along with the music, why does the guy have to say “completed” after each level? That is, if you’re lucky enough to actually get through it. Also, no need for the “ready, go” at the start of each level. Like I said, day two of the same impossible level...and i could do without “ready go”. Omg how do you off the annoying music without muting the entire game???
Nice

Great game- so much fun and challenging.
Love this game
by Zilla1958 on 2019/05/15 22:22
I’ve had this game a long time & still enjoy it. It’s my go to to kill time game. Just wondering though if level 14-14 is even possible to beat without using a help. I always get up to that level without using any helps & then I’m stuck. You won’t be disappointed if you get this game.
Developer not honest - cannot get past 8-02
by Zarqua on 2019/04/12 22:09
I like this game a lot, but have been stuck on level 8-02 for many weeks now. I thought maybe it was just super hard, but then I started reading the reviews and a LOT of folks are stuck at this level and cannot go on. The developer states that this “bug has been fixed” but that is NOT true! I challenge the developer to show me getting through this level. It’s just not possible. The way the gems pile up, there is no way through this level. If you’re good with staying below level 7, then I’d say go for it. If you want to go past that, or you expect good customer support, then look for another game, because this one isn’t it. Very frustrating to have made it this far and gotten stuck behind a bad level design.
Good until.....
by Cindybingo on 2018/11/29 01:29
It's a great game, but hard levels are still impossible stuck on 8-2 again. And still have to buy the extra as there’s no way to earn anything for free. forcing you buy more. ..update , since last update NO you have not fixed 8-2 still stuck on it for a month now. Stop lying!!!!
Great Game....
by Bert-63 on 2018/10/02 23:16
Can’t even begin to imagine how many hours I’ve spent beating this game over and over. It always ends the same way - three stars every level except one, and on that one I can’t get even one. Beat the level, yes. Earn stars? Nope... Wonderful game. Wish there were more like it..
Rune Gems Deluxe
by Fatboy4909 on 2018/07/19 15:40
Very addicting. Some levels are extremely difficult, it all matters how the gems fall. Regardless of time it takes to complete a level, you should still get 1 star.
Fun way to pass time
by tonyinnao on 2018/02/20 15:31
This game is pretty fun. I usually play the lvl over and over until I get the 3 medals. No complaints.
Stuck
by Gladdog on 2018/01/06 07:36
Get to a certain level and game is impossible to beat. Hard levels are one thing, impossible is another. I am out! Not playing anymore. Do not waste your time!
Yeah - No
by 57 bluis on 2017/12/30 05:38
So as usual the game was great until you reach level 7-9 and then well just forget it! Most games let you reach a certain level and then make it impossible to complete. It is a trend to make you buy in app purchases I guess. But I can’t waste my time on a game that is not fun anymore. I have done the math and the scenario presented on this level everytime is NOT winnable. So now gonna hit the delete button!
Must pay to get past level 08-02... lame.
by Vicki in Santa Fe on 2017/12/27 13:05
Must buy power packs/upgrades to get past certain levels. Lame. Deleting.
Not a puzzle - a sale
by Nao66 on 2017/11/28 03:05
Starts out ok, even fun, but at some point the only way to solve is to buy upgrades/power ups. No thank you. Deleting.
Challenging!
by Tazzyfan on 2017/10/27 19:39
Enjoy trying to reach 3-stars on each level - other times, just trying to complete the level is challenging....
Love this game.
by Myiphone23 on 2017/10/03 20:12
It's challenging at times but so much fun. My sons dad and I try to beat each other's scores.
I buy games not upgrades
by alabemos on 2017/08/10 13:25
I really like this game but I am not prepared to continue paying for every time I get to a level that is almost impossible. I would pay for the game, but not repeated upgrades
Time killer
by Cd.pegasus on 2017/06/19 14:27
I like playing this when there is time to kill. I have made it to level 12 but can't get even 1 star on 5. Been there for months.
Great game to past the time
by AppNotWorking99 on 2017/06/13 12:24
Takes a while to get thru all the games. You have to have patience. Some took consistent playing of the same one I can admit weeks at a time. Usually play it on the bus or train going to work. Now going back thru them to get the three medallions. This is my go to game to past the time while waiting .. Dr office, bus to work, or when I can't sleep. It's a keeper.
Challenging
by Buddy41 on 2017/03/17 16:24
Pretty good game.Addictive and challenging!
Cannot get past 7-09
by 8 Up on 2017/03/02 23:26
It is literally not possible to reach level 8. In level 7-09, there is one stone in the halfway-point that blocks you from accessing all of the other stones. There will not be two stones available that match that middle stone. Don't waste your money.
Addicting

Great game. HARD!!
Enjoyable
by irishpops on 2017/02/21 07:03
Simple, yet at times challenging diversion.
Addictive
by way0utwest on 2017/01/30 23:05
A fun game, good for wasting a few minutes. If you don't get caught up in solving the puzzles. Only wish there was a time visible to understand scoring better
Fun with roadblocks
by CodeGrue on 2016/11/24 13:05
I have to agree with the other reviewers. Fun but some levels are just not solvable without extreme luck. They need to alter their algorithm to stack the blocks so every sort is solvable. Then I will up my stars.
Not possible
by Drive 404 on 2016/11/14 02:05
I have really enjoyed this game, but I cannot pass level 7-09. I don't even think it's possible. Now I'm looking for a new game. ☹️
Fun challenging game
by Msdrae on 2016/10/21 21:17
This really is a strategy game and is good for an "older mind" to keep challenged. I enjoy playing it very much.
Fun for a while
by JasonCfromTX on 2016/08/05 22:05
Fun game till level 4-13. After trying at least 40 times I have concluded its impossible to complete that level without a number of the go back buttons used. They want money for these or to post to FB/Twitter. NOPE not gonna do either. So deleted it.
Great game!! Addictive!!
by Alanmarian on 2016/07/29 02:03
Love it. Hours of fun
Great game! Love it!

Very fun and addicting.
Level 12-05
by Khaled-Gazawi on 2016/06/08 04:14
Funnily enough, the game producers issued two updates in a row to fix a crash case for IOS 7 users but did not bother to fix Level 12-05 bug!!! Whenever level 12-05 is reached, whatever score is achieved, this level doesn't give any stars nor a time bonus. Fix it!!! Two thumbs down for lack of attention!
Can't get past 4/13 - was fun until then
by GetBeachy on 2016/06/08 03:09
You need to have magic/rune to move forward In the game from 4/13.. To get it free you have to post to Fb or Twitter!! F-that, I'm deleting it!!!
Tough - but beatable
by Gaspeddler on 2016/06/07 02:40
This app offers in-app purchases. Having just completed all levels, I can report it is possible to do so without purchasing anything. However, be prepared for repeating (restarting) some boards a large number of times (100+) to eventually clear it. I would like to see the game provide "free" rewards (magic runes or time runes) that are normally in-app purchases at some point during play. But then that would impact the author's business model which is to sell such these things. Great animation during play, although the sound effects and simulated unfurling of parchment before each and after each level of play is rather crude. It is also possible to select gems quicker than the game can follow, which may result in an error (it says "Failed").
Gems!
by Lolmom on 2016/06/06 02:56
Like 3-D solitaire -- only shiny! Lots of patterns. Sometimes you get a good hand & other times it's a re-re-re-do. Even the music is addictive.

Very interesting. Lots of fun! It's the best. Fascinating.
Unable to purchase aids
by MacMacMd on 2016/05/31 19:28
I tried to purchase the hints or helpers to get pass level 4-13 but they did not appear. I sent an email using the contact form on their website. I have not heard back.

Fun & Frustrating
by DeePurpleEyez on 2016/05/09 15:11
The frustration comes from being challenged which is a good thing.
Very addicting game that sharpens visual skills..!
by LightSide360 on 2016/05/01 02:40

Rune Gems
by ruruisme on 2016/04/07 14:40
The game is challenging and was enjoyable at first, but after playing awhile, it doesn't give you any opportunity to receive help except to make a purchase. I'm deleting it. I can spend my time repeating the same level somewhere else. If your only resort for help is to purchase hints, I'll pass.
It's fun

Best ever
Was fun, at first.
by FlyingAngryPip on 2016/01/18 10:42
This was a lot of fun, was. Then around level 4, when I ran out of the Magic Runes I started with, it became pure frustration. I attempted to beat a level around 15 times before giving in and doing the Facebook post to receive 5 more Magic Runes. Used 1 rune, the level was a breeze. 4 more levels and I was stuck again. I understand them wanting money. But I greatly dislike being railroaded into buying Magic Runes because that's the only way I'm able to complete a level. Rather than paying more money, I'm deleting this app and finding a game I can play where I can choose to support them, like Godville.
so funnyyyyy
by kind nightingale on 2015/12/11 12:45
update please!!! I hope to play new level.
Fun, but...
by Cynran on 2015/12/06 20:00
I wish some decent instructions were provided.
No Fun
by Parks Nana on 2015/11/08 02:54
it gets to a point (early in this game) where it is impossible to progress, you will get stuck on one level with no way out. It is a waste of my time.
Garbage "pay as you go" game...
by Mixalhs on 2015/11/05 20:41
This is an in-app purchase money grabbing piece of crap.
Fun, addictive game
by Dvictory36 on 2015/10/20 00:44
Great for long drives
Good game, until purchases required to beat levels
by daeggman on 2015/08/25 22:04
I was thoroughly enjoying this game, and there seemed to be a fair amount of challenge in planning your moves ahead, until I hit level 7-09. This level is virtually unbeatable unless you use premium power ups, and even then the initial tile placements can trick you into wasting your paid power ups and it STILL being unbeatable.
Mesmerizing
by Padupple on 2015/07/31 18:34
Addictive. Can’t quit. The music is extremely well-matched, soothing, and even rich. The graphics are perfect—the colors are great for my attitude. You can play it slow or try to speed. I wish there was a fully paid version as the in-app magic and rime runes are pricey.
Great idea bad programming
by BBNJ62 on 2015/07/28 14:35
This would be an awesome game if there were not several levels that cannot be resolved or can only be solved by pure luck of the tiles which may take hundreds of tries. Just bad programming

by glenng666 on 2015/05/28 06:16
Enjoyable until you come to levels that are unsolvable. Once you use all the hints you have to pay for more. That is a waste of money because the hints don't give you a solution and you have to continue paying. I don't do in app purchases, I will just move onto another app. Goodbye.

by Vivianltw on 2015/03/08 02:20
I play this game the most out of the games I have so far. It's so addicting when it gets to higher levels.
Game A+, Music D-
by Stoidykins on 2015/03/08 02:11
PLEASE split the sound into effects/music... I hate ghee fact that I have to listen to the music, or ANY music, because the only way to stop the game music is to turn on something else, I hate having to do that. Please give an option for no music while keeping the sound effects. (The sound of the tiles dropping is great) Someday it would be great to have a different set of tiles, too. But as long as I can turn off the music I would be happy.
Alright. Doesn't let level up. Like use too.
by Adventure_1 on 2015/03/06 00:06
I give game. 3 I just got tired of the game. Wouldn't let level up.

Good But Have to Pay In Order to progress
by KennyShah on 2015/02/09 02:47
This is a good game but most levels require you to pay for power ups in order to beat the level. Case in point, for most levels the 1st 7 tiles are different colors so even if you use strategy there is no way to play unless you pay for a power up or keep restarting where 1st 7 tiles are not different colors in order to move on.
Only game I play.
by Trojanette on 2015/02/05 09:07
I really like the added levels but with the newer version if you don't pass the level it just shuts down and have to reload the game every time. The first version didn't have that problem. Gets to be a drag to always start over from the desktop on the iPad. It is one the best games tho.
Addictive but fun
by Daxsdad on 2014/12/26 00:52
It is a fun game,but it is rather addictive. Can also be frustrating as well when the runes are not aligned well enough.
Challenging
by Whatever24)8 on 2014/12/24 18:05
Would be nice to be able to be able to unlock earn points or something to spend/redeem for the undo/hint w/o having to use money

by 1234543212321 on 2014/12/19 09:01
I love the many levels of puzzles and it is very addicting. I love the speed that you can play it...but I hate how addicting it is and how difficult some of the levels are. If you don't have the special added features you are doomed.

Very entertaining. Good way to pass the time. Though there are times I think the game is rigged where there are no options to pass certain levels...eventually you will get a hand that is a success. Would recommend to my friends!
Horrible balance of difficulty
by blueston chris on 2014/08/24 07:58
Yes the game can be addicting but prepare to pay for upgrades to advance. First 4 levels are fairly easy & there is no need to use any upgrade. Once you get to level 5 - it's like an entire different game. Difficulty is jacked up to impossible all of a sudden. There was no way for me to advance without using upgrades. The game is OK but just way expensive for what it is worth:(
Pay to Play
by DashMcCool on 2014/08/19 06:52
This would be a good game if it cost a buck or two, but the developers continually ask for ridiculous amounts of money for temporary items. Problem is, you need those temporary items to advance past certain levels and there's no way to earn those items in the game. You can only buy them.
Runes fun

Developer not honest - cannot get past 8-02
by Zarqua on 2019/04/12 22:09
I like this game a lot, but have been stuck on level 8-02 for many weeks now. I thought maybe it was just super hard, but then I started reading the reviews and a LOT of folks are stuck at this level and cannot go on. The developer states that this “bug has been fixed” but that is NOT true! I challenge the developer to show me getting through this level. It’s just not possible. The way the gems pile up, there is no way through this level. If you’re good with staying below level 7, then I’d say go for it. If you want to go past that, or you expect good customer support, then look for another game, because this one isn’t it. Very frustrating to have made it this far and gotten stuck behind a bad level design.
How do you turn the music off
by OneSassyB on 2020/03/11 23:28
Well after playing for a while, this game is just super frustrating. Not only can you not turn off the annoying music, but levels are just not possible to pass. I’ve been playing the same level for two days and it’s just not possible to get thru, you never get the one tile you need to make a match. Along with the music, why does the guy have to say “completed” after each level? That is, if you’re lucky enough to actually get through it. Also, no need for the “ready, go” at the start of each level. Like I said, day two of the same impossible level...and i could do without “ready go”. Omg how do you off the annoying music without muting the entire game???
Meh
by Spncrs mum on 2020/06/04 08:20
The game itself is fun. So far, I have 2 issues. 1- there is no way to earn hints/help/restart. The only way is to buy them using real $. I’m ok with watching a video to earn like 3 of each. Or find a way for us to earn more. 2-some levels are too hard to earn 3 stars in such a short time (without using the hint/help). Other easier levels, I took my time, & still got 3 stars! It seems the harder levels should give more time to earn 3 stars. 3- take some lessons from the tile masters game app. That one is very good I think.
Love this game
by Zilla1958 on 2019/05/15 22:22
I’ve had this game a long time & still enjoy it. It’s my go to to kill time game. Just wondering though if level 14-14 is even possible to beat without using a help. I always get up to that level without using any helps & then I’m stuck. You won’t be disappointed if you get this game.

by Meoooo111 on 2020/09/17 20:47
I’d give this a one star! On level 16-5 you never have the moves you should have. And you don’t reply to your reviews. So fix your game! Or I will delete it for good and all your others that u put out!so it looks like you are not fixing the game so I’m deleting the 3 games I have downloaded of yours. I gave you a chance to fix the game but no you haven’t. Others will do the same . People will get fed up. And they will do the same. There’s a lot other games that are much better. So keep your games. I’m out forever. Never will I put any games of yours on my ipads. GONE FOR GOOD!!
Great Game....
by Bert-63 on 2018/10/02 23:16
Can’t even begin to imagine how many hours I’ve spent beating this game over and over. It always ends the same way - three stars every level except one, and on that one I can’t get even one. Beat the level, yes. Earn stars? Nope... Wonderful game. Wish there were more like it..
Challenging!
by Tazzyfan on 2017/10/27 19:39
Enjoy trying to reach 3-stars on each level - other times, just trying to complete the level is challenging....
Good until.....
by Cindybingo on 2018/11/29 01:29
It's a great game, but hard levels are still impossible stuck on 8-2 again. And still have to buy the extra as there’s no way to earn anything for free. forcing you buy more. ..update , since last update NO you have not fixed 8-2 still stuck on it for a month now. Stop lying!!!!
Yeah - No
by 57 bluis on 2017/12/30 05:38
So as usual the game was great until you reach level 7-9 and then well just forget it! Most games let you reach a certain level and then make it impossible to complete. It is a trend to make you buy in app purchases I guess. But I can’t waste my time on a game that is not fun anymore. I have done the math and the scenario presented on this level everytime is NOT winnable. So now gonna hit the delete button!
Addictive
by way0utwest on 2017/01/30 23:05
A fun game, good for wasting a few minutes. If you don't get caught up in solving the puzzles. Only wish there was a time visible to understand scoring better
Fun way to pass time
by tonyinnao on 2018/02/20 15:31
This game is pretty fun. I usually play the lvl over and over until I get the 3 medals. No complaints.
Time killer
by Cd.pegasus on 2017/06/19 14:27
I like playing this when there is time to kill. I have made it to level 12 but can't get even 1 star on 5. Been there for months.
I buy games not upgrades
by alabemos on 2017/08/10 13:25
I really like this game but I am not prepared to continue paying for every time I get to a level that is almost impossible. I would pay for the game, but not repeated upgrades
Fun for a while
by JasonCfromTX on 2016/08/05 22:05
Fun game till level 4-13. After trying at least 40 times I have concluded its impossible to complete that level without a number of the go back buttons used. They want money for these or to post to FB/Twitter. NOPE not gonna do either. So deleted it.
Love this game.

Rune Gems Deluxe
by Fatboy4909 on 2018/07/19 15:40
Very addicting. Some levels are extremely difficult, it all matters how the gems fall. Regardless of time it takes to complete a level, you should still get 1 star.
Not possible
by Drive 404 on 2016/11/14 02:05
I have really enjoyed this game, but I cannot pass level 7-09. I don't even think it's possible. Now I'm looking for a new game. ☹️
Fun with roadblocks
by CodeGrue on 2016/11/24 13:05
I have to agree with the other reviewers. Fun but some levels are just not solvable without extreme luck. They need to alter their algorithm to stack the blocks so every sort is solvable. Then I will up my stars.
Fun challenging game
by Msdrae on 2016/10/21 21:17
This really is a strategy game and is good for an "older mind" to keep challenged. I enjoy playing it very much.
Cannot get past 7-09
by 8 Up on 2017/03/02 23:26
It is literally not possible to reach level 8. In level 7-09, there is one stone in the halfway-point that blocks you from accessing all of the other stones. There will not be two stones available that match that middle stone. Don't waste your money.

You need to have magic/rune to move forward In the game from 4/13.. To get it free you have to post to Fb or Twitter!! F-that, I'm deleting it!!!

Tough - but beatable
by Gaspeddler on 2016/06/07 02:40
This app offers in-app purchases. Having just completed all levels, I can report it is possible to do so without purchasing anything. However, be prepared for repeating (restarting) some boards a large number of times (100+) to eventually clear it. I would like to see the game provide "free" rewards (magic runes or time runes) that are normally in-app purchases at some point during play. But then that would impact the author's business model which is to sell such these things. Great animation during play, although the sound effects and simulated unfurling of parchment before each and after each level of play is rather crude. It is also possible to select gems quicker than the game can follow, which may result in an error (it says "Failed").
One star.....
by Seatac33 on 2013/03/03 07:18
Rune Gems and Rune Gems Deluxe are identical, so why are the developers passing them off as two different games? They are both for iPhone/iPad, and they are both EXACTLY the same download size. Everything about them is identical other than one of them has more levels and is a dollar more. I feel the game should have been sold under one name, and charged extra for the added levels, rather than tricking people into buying both games, thereby acquiring five dollars rather than three dollars. Furthermore, the game becomes boring quite quickly in my opinion. What is so challenging and exciting about matching three cubes, for cryin' out loud? A person does have to use some strategic thinking when there are only two of one kind accessible, but I still find it boring in general, and disingenuous tactics in the second place. For misleading, disingenuous tactics to acquire more money from the same game with merely one added word in the title and a slight change in the version number I am only giving this somewhat OK game a mere one star.
Good game, but ...
by badkitty_ on 2013/08/31 17:09
1. The music controls are not separated from the sound effects. I is all built in to one control. If you want to turn off the annoying music, you also turn off all sound effects to the game. Dev, please fix this. 2. The reliance on IAPs is annoying. I do not play games that do this, as there is no way to beat them without purchasing IAPs, which I refuse to do. 3. Thank you for making a landscape mode for the iPad, although you cannot rotate the game in all four directions like a true Universal app.
Favorite game for over three months
by Kvl4730 on 2013/05/04 15:10
It's hard to find a game that keeps you entertained for longer than a few weeks, but this game has done it! After completing all 8 levels with three stars each, (which took some time, each level is challenging), I started from the beginning to try to beat my previous scores. I was very happy to see the added levels on the update but three of the level 9 puzzles have some kind of bug. No coins are given no matter how quickly you solve the puzzle. Other than that needed fix, it's a great game and I am waiting for more levels to come out! Highly recommend this game.
❤❤❤this game!!!
by Leah Posner on 2013/02/06 16:08
Addictive, fun, easily passes the time and makes you think and strategize. My husband and I both play it and have a competitive nature and this game is fun for that! My 11 yr old son also plays on his Ipod and he is color blind and he does just fine with it thanks to the shapes. I like that about this game compared to many like it-there are several he can not play! You don't NEED to buy the extras-make your brain work! Keep trying...it's good for you!
Greattt game
by Tired of complainers on 2013/02/01 11:34
Need more levels i beat them all hope they come out with more love love love yes this game some boards seam impossible one level did give me alot trouble so bought one 1.99 boost after 5 days on on board after that np now going throw to try make them all 3 stars this is a brain helper to make you think on the harder levels great game for all ages if i could would of put more stars and they don't ask u to bye coins to go up levels
Current favorite puzzle
by neonefound on 2014/06/19 02:53
I was surprised at how much I liked this game. I thought maybe it would be a throw away puzzle game but actually has a long list of levels. I'm pushed to try and get all the stars. Only complaint is that any bonus items require money and there isn't a way to spend in game points on those.
Good but....
by maggiesue2200 on 2013/02/07 20:09
At first, I was liking this game but it lacks instructions on what it takes to get three stars on the levels. I can play the same level over and over and not gain a star even though I know I did it faster. As you get into the higher levels, it's almost impossible to complete them. You start out with about 20 game helpers, but once they are gone, you get no more. Even though this is a free version, the game should never come to a halt just because you don't upgrade. That makes me not want to upgrade. I think you should earn some of the game extras as you play.
Was fun, at first.
by FlyingAngryPip on 2016/01/18 10:42
This was a lot of fun, was. Then around level 4, when I ran out of the Magic Runes I started with, it became pure frustration. I attempted to beat a level around 15 times before giving in and doing the Facebook post to receive 5 more Magic Runes. Used 1 rune, the level was a breeze. 4 more levels and I was stuck again. I understand them wanting money. But I greatly dislike being railroaded into buying Magic Runes because that's the only way I'm able to complete a level. Rather than paying more money, I'm deleting this app and finding a game I can play where I can choose to support them, like Godville.
Game A+, Music D-
by Stoidykins on 2015/03/08 02:11
PLEASE split the sound into effects/music... I hate ghee fact that I have to listen to the music, or ANY music, because the only way to stop the game music is to turn on something else, I hate having to do that. Please give an option for no music while keeping the sound effects. (The sound of the tiles dropping is great) Someday it would be great to have a different set of tiles, too. But as long as I can turn off the music I would be happy.
Fun, but annoying after a while
by Tienbien1 on 2013/02/15 04:28
This game is really fun and addictive... at first. Then after playing for a while you discover that you can't win all of the levels without spending money. Some are impossible to beat without using the "cheats" that you pay for. Stupid. Then it gets more annoying when the game starts sending you 8 push notifications at a time when you already put the settings at 'no push notifications.' It's overkill. I understand that they're trying to make money but they take it too far.
Only game I play.
by Trojanette on 2015/02/05 09:07
I really like the added levels but with the newer version if you don't pass the level it just shuts down and have to reload the game every time. The first version didn't have that problem. Gets to be a drag to always start over from the desktop on the iPad. It is one the best games tho.
Fun game
by Nanakitteh on 2013/11/30 13:29
This is a pretty good game to play. It is sorta mindless like Tetris or Bejeweled. I play it while watching movies I have already seen! The trick is to touch runes to line them up on the bar below. If you get three of the same symbol/color, they disappear and clear the bar for more. But if you don't have three the same, they stay around and clutter up your bar. Ou win when you clear the page of all the runes.
Fun Game
by iPhad Noob on 2013/03/04 06:16
Fun game, many levels. Great way to pass the time when physically and mentally tired and need a break. The runes and sounds are appealing. It is a bit addicting though. Many times I've thought that when the one section ends I will stop but then I automatically touch the NEXT button instead of ending the game as intended.
good game
by Satanzangl on 2013/09/24 17:03
Edit - lowering rating because of app update. App takes up more space. The old tiles were easier to see, now it is hard to differentiate between the green tiles while playing game is difficult sometimes and there aren't any options to get the hints/undos without purchasing. Also wish the levels were sorted by difficulty instead of being all mixed together. Some levels hard to get all three coins. i like the game.

Description
rune gems is a unique style match 3 puzzle game. Pick up color tile creating 3 matches. It’s really that simple, but it’s a neat and unique approach to the match 3 genre that we think you’re going to like. it’s neither a Bejeweled nor a Diamond Dash clone, instead of having more in common with Mahjong/Shanghai than anything else. ----------------------------------------------- How to play: ● you have on your screen a tray holding 7 tiles that are populated from a game board. ● You tap a tile to make it go into your tray. The goal is to match every three colored tiles as quickly as possible from the game board, lest you fill up your 7 tile tray without any matching 3. ● Once you fail to have a matching group after putting down 7 tiles, you’ve failed. ----------------------------------------------- rune gems Features: ● The tiles are colorful and have a gemstone appearance to them. each tile board is different and varies from one to the next, giving the game a different flair for every level you play. ● rune gems is one of those games that’s perfect for picking up and playing for just a minute or two, or for a long time to waste the day away. Grab it and see how far you can get. ● Players have optional use of both “magic” and “time” runes to help them — the former automatically picks a good gem to take, while the latter allows for an “undo.” ----------------------------------------------- A little trick:
Since a grouping can NEVER be more than 3, is to simply match as many triplets as fast as possible for an escalating speed combo bonus...but be careful, if in your haste you end up tapping on 4 red pieces, that 4th piece will now sit on the tray clogging stuff up until you find it two more partners. So always be mindful of what you put on the tray and make sure you can match it off quickly or letting it clog the flow up a bit is worth it if it is blocking your access to many other tiles underneath. ----------------------------------------------- Reviews: “A match 3 puzzle game set on a Majong style puzzle game board.” - Appsaga.com “rune gems is an excellent, well-presented game, friendly to both long and short play sessions.” - insidemobileapps.com “The whole game is well executed and we really love to tap on one of the runes, for the animation is so smooth.” - fun2tap.com ----------------------------------------------- if you have any questions or concerns, please contact us: http://starsprite.com/ Have fun & enjoying rune gems!

Developer not honest - cannot get past 8-02
by Zarqua on 2019/04/12 22:09
I like this game a lot, but have been stuck on level 8-02 for many weeks now. I thought maybe it was just super hard, but then I started reading the reviews and a LOT of folks are stuck at this level and cannot go on. The developer states that this “bug has been fixed” but that is NOT true! I challenge the developer to show me getting through this level. It’s just not possible. The way the gems pile up, there is no way through this level. If you’re good with staying below level 7, then I’d say go for it. If you want to go past that, or you expect good customer support, then look for another game, because this one isn’t it. Very frustrating to have made it this far and gotten stuck behind a bad level design.

Takes a while to get thru all the games. You have to have patience. Some took consistent playing of the same one I can admit weeks at a time. Usually play it on the bus or train going to work. Now going back thru them to get the three medallions. This is my go to game to past the time while waiting .. Dr office, bus to work, or when I can't sleep. It's a keeper.

Pretty good game.Addictive and challenging!
Cannot get past 7-09
by 8 Up on 2017/03/02 23:26
It is literally not possible to reach level 8. In level 7-09, there is one stone in the halfway-point that blocks you from accessing all of the other stones. There will not be two stones available that match that middle stone. Don't waste your money.

Fun with roadblocks
by CodeGrue on 2016/11/24 13:05
I have to agree with the other reviewers. Fun but some levels are just not solvable without extreme luck. They need to alter their algorithm to stack the blocks so every sort is solvable. Then I will up my stars.
Not possible
by Drive 404 on 2016/11/14 02:05
I have really enjoyed this game, but I cannot pass level 7-09. I don't even think it's possible. Now I'm looking for a new game. ☹️
Fun challenging game

by JasonCfromTX on 2016/08/05 22:05
Fun game till level 4-13. After trying at least 40 times I have concluded its impossible to complete that level without a number of the go back buttons used. They want money for these or to post to FB/Twitter. NOPE not gonna do either. So deleted it.

Level 12-05
by Khaled-Gazawi on 2016/06/08 04:14
Funnily enough, the game producers issued two updates in a row to fix a crash case for IOS 7 users but did not bother to fix Level 12-05 bug!!! Whenever level 12-05 is reached, whatever score is achieved, this level doesn't give any stars nor a time bonus. Fix it!!! Two thumbs down for lack of attention!
Can't get past 4/13 - was fun until then
by GetBeachy on 2016/06/08 03:09
You need to have magic/rune to move forward In the game from 4/13.. To get it free you have to post to Fb or Twitter!! F-that, I'm deleting it!!!
Tough - but beatable
by Gaspeddler on 2016/06/07 02:40
This app offers in-app purchases. Having just completed all levels, I can report it is possible to do so without purchasing anything. However, be prepared for repeating (restarting) some boards a large number of times (100+) to eventually clear it. I would like to see the game provide "free" rewards (magic runes or time runes) that are normally in-app purchases at some point during play. But then that would impact the author's business model which is to sell such these things. Great animation during play, although the sound effects and simulated unfurling of parchment before each and after each level of play is rather crude. It is also possible to select gems quicker than the game can follow, which may result in an error (it says "Failed").
Gems!
by Lolmom on 2016/06/06 02:56
Like 3-D solitaire -- only shiny! Lots of patterns. Sometimes you get a good hand & other times it's a re-re-re-do. Even the music is addictive.

The game is challenging and was enjoyable at first, but after playing awhile, it doesn't give you any opportunity to receive help except to make a purchase. I'm deleting it. I can spend my time repeating the same level somewhere else. If your only resort for help is to purchase hints, I'll pass.

Was fun, at first.
by FlyingAngryPip on 2016/01/18 10:42
This was a lot of fun, was. Then around level 4, when I ran out of the Magic Runes I started with, it became pure frustration. I attempted to beat a level around 15 times before giving in and doing the Facebook post to receive 5 more Magic Runes. Used 1 rune, the level was a breeze. 4 more levels and I was stuck again. I understand them wanting money. But I greatly dislike being railroaded into buying Magic Runes because that's the only way I'm able to complete a level. Rather than paying more money, I'm deleting this app and finding a game I can play where I can choose to support them, like Godville.

No Fun
by Parks Nana on 2015/11/08 02:54
it gets to a point (early in this game) where it is impossible to progress, you will get stuck on one level with no way out. It is a waste of my time.
Garbage "pay as you go" game...
by Mixalhs on 2015/11/05 20:41
This is an in-app purchase money grabbing piece of crap.

Great for long drives
Good game, until purchases required to beat levels
by daeggman on 2015/08/25 22:04
I was thoroughly enjoying this game, and there seemed to be a fair amount of challenge in planning your moves ahead, until I hit level 7-09. This level is virtually unbeatable unless you use premium power ups, and even then the initial tile placements can trick you into wasting your paid power ups and it STILL being unbeatable.
Mesmerizing
by Padupple on 2015/07/31 18:34
Addictive. Can’t quit. The music is extremely well-matched, soothing, and even rich. The graphics are perfect—the colors are great for my attitude. You can play it slow or try to speed. I wish there was a fully paid version as the in-app magic and rime runes are pricey.
Great idea bad programming
by BBNJ62 on 2015/07/28 14:35
This would be an awesome game if there were not several levels that cannot be resolved or can only be solved by pure luck of the tiles which may take hundreds of tries. Just bad programming

by glenng666 on 2015/05/28 06:16
Enjoyable until you come to levels that are unsolvable. Once you use all the hints you have to pay for more. That is a waste of money because the hints don't give you a solution and you have to continue paying. I don't do in app purchases, I will just move onto another app. Goodbye.

Game A+, Music D-
by Stoidykins on 2015/03/08 02:11
PLEASE split the sound into effects/music... I hate ghee fact that I have to listen to the music, or ANY music, because the only way to stop the game music is to turn on something else, I hate having to do that. Please give an option for no music while keeping the sound effects. (The sound of the tiles dropping is great) Someday it would be great to have a different set of tiles, too. But as long as I can turn off the music I would be happy.
Alright. Doesn't let level up. Like use too.

Good But Have to Pay In Order to progress
by KennyShah on 2015/02/09 02:47
This is a good game but most levels require you to pay for power ups in order to beat the level. Case in point, for most levels the 1st 7 tiles are different colors so even if you use strategy there is no way to play unless you pay for a power up or keep restarting where 1st 7 tiles are not different colors in order to move on.
Only game I play.
by Trojanette on 2015/02/05 09:07
I really like the added levels but with the newer version if you don't pass the level it just shuts down and have to reload the game every time. The first version didn't have that problem. Gets to be a drag to always start over from the desktop on the iPad. It is one the best games tho.
Addictive but fun
by Daxsdad on 2014/12/26 00:52
It is a fun game,but it is rather addictive. Can also be frustrating as well when the runes are not aligned well enough.

Horrible balance of difficulty
by blueston chris on 2014/08/24 07:58
Yes the game can be addicting but prepare to pay for upgrades to advance. First 4 levels are fairly easy & there is no need to use any upgrade. Once you get to level 5 - it's like an entire different game. Difficulty is jacked up to impossible all of a sudden. There was no way for me to advance without using upgrades. The game is OK but just way expensive for what it is worth:(
Pay to Play
by DashMcCool on 2014/08/19 06:52
This would be a good game if it cost a buck or two, but the developers continually ask for ridiculous amounts of money for temporary items. Problem is, you need those temporary items to advance past certain levels and there's no way to earn those items in the game. You can only buy them.

Developer not honest - cannot get past 8-02
by Zarqua on 2019/04/12 22:09
I like this game a lot, but have been stuck on level 8-02 for many weeks now. I thought maybe it was just super hard, but then I started reading the reviews and a LOT of folks are stuck at this level and cannot go on. The developer states that this “bug has been fixed” but that is NOT true! I challenge the developer to show me getting through this level. It’s just not possible. The way the gems pile up, there is no way through this level. If you’re good with staying below level 7, then I’d say go for it. If you want to go past that, or you expect good customer support, then look for another game, because this one isn’t it. Very frustrating to have made it this far and gotten stuck behind a bad level design.
How do you turn the music off
by OneSassyB on 2020/03/11 23:28
Well after playing for a while, this game is just super frustrating. Not only can you not turn off the annoying music, but levels are just not possible to pass. I’ve been playing the same level for two days and it’s just not possible to get thru, you never get the one tile you need to make a match. Along with the music, why does the guy have to say “completed” after each level? That is, if you’re lucky enough to actually get through it. Also, no need for the “ready, go” at the start of each level. Like I said, day two of the same impossible level...and i could do without “ready go”. Omg how do you off the annoying music without muting the entire game???
Meh
by Spncrs mum on 2020/06/04 08:20
The game itself is fun. So far, I have 2 issues. 1- there is no way to earn hints/help/restart. The only way is to buy them using real $. I’m ok with watching a video to earn like 3 of each. Or find a way for us to earn more. 2-some levels are too hard to earn 3 stars in such a short time (without using the hint/help). Other easier levels, I took my time, & still got 3 stars! It seems the harder levels should give more time to earn 3 stars. 3- take some lessons from the tile masters game app. That one is very good I think.
Love this game
by Zilla1958 on 2019/05/15 22:22
I’ve had this game a long time & still enjoy it. It’s my go to to kill time game. Just wondering though if level 14-14 is even possible to beat without using a help. I always get up to that level without using any helps & then I’m stuck. You won’t be disappointed if you get this game.

by Meoooo111 on 2020/09/17 20:47
I’d give this a one star! On level 16-5 you never have the moves you should have. And you don’t reply to your reviews. So fix your game! Or I will delete it for good and all your others that u put out!so it looks like you are not fixing the game so I’m deleting the 3 games I have downloaded of yours. I gave you a chance to fix the game but no you haven’t. Others will do the same . People will get fed up. And they will do the same. There’s a lot other games that are much better. So keep your games. I’m out forever. Never will I put any games of yours on my ipads. GONE FOR GOOD!!
Great Game....
by Bert-63 on 2018/10/02 23:16
Can’t even begin to imagine how many hours I’ve spent beating this game over and over. It always ends the same way - three stars every level except one, and on that one I can’t get even one. Beat the level, yes. Earn stars? Nope... Wonderful game. Wish there were more like it..

It's a great game, but hard levels are still impossible stuck on 8-2 again. And still have to buy the extra as there’s no way to earn anything for free. forcing you buy more. ..update , since last update NO you have not fixed 8-2 still stuck on it for a month now. Stop lying!!!!
Yeah - No
by 57 bluis on 2017/12/30 05:38
So as usual the game was great until you reach level 7-9 and then well just forget it! Most games let you reach a certain level and then make it impossible to complete. It is a trend to make you buy in app purchases I guess. But I can’t waste my time on a game that is not fun anymore. I have done the math and the scenario presented on this level everytime is NOT winnable. So now gonna hit the delete button!

by Seatac33 on 2013/03/03 07:18
Rune Gems and Rune Gems Deluxe are identical, so why are the developers passing them off as two different games? They are both for iPhone/iPad, and they are both EXACTLY the same download size. Everything about them is identical other than one of them has more levels and is a dollar more. I feel the game should have been sold under one name, and charged extra for the added levels, rather than tricking people into buying both games, thereby acquiring five dollars rather than three dollars. Furthermore, the game becomes boring quite quickly in my opinion. What is so challenging and exciting about matching three cubes, for cryin' out loud? A person does have to use some strategic thinking when there are only two of one kind accessible, but I still find it boring in general, and disingenuous tactics in the second place. For misleading, disingenuous tactics to acquire more money from the same game with merely one added word in the title and a slight change in the version number I am only giving this somewhat OK game a mere one star.
Good game, but ...

1. The music controls are not separated from the sound effects. I is all built in to one control. If you want to turn off the annoying music, you also turn off all sound effects to the game. Dev, please fix this. 2. The reliance on IAPs is annoying. I do not play games that do this, as there is no way to beat them without purchasing IAPs, which I refuse to do. 3. Thank you for making a landscape mode for the iPad, although you cannot rotate the game in all four directions like a true Universal app.
Favorite game for over three months

It's hard to find a game that keeps you entertained for longer than a few weeks, but this game has done it! After completing all 8 levels with three stars each, (which took some time, each level is challenging), I started from the beginning to try to beat my previous scores. I was very happy to see the added levels on the update but three of the level 9 puzzles have some kind of bug. No coins are given no matter how quickly you solve the puzzle. Other than that needed fix, it's a great game and I am waiting for more levels to come out! Highly recommend this game.
❤❤❤this game!!!

Addictive, fun, easily passes the time and makes you think and strategize. My husband and I both play it and have a competitive nature and this game is fun for that! My 11 yr old son also plays on his Ipod and he is color blind and he does just fine with it thanks to the shapes. I like that about this game compared to many like it-there are several he can not play! You don't NEED to buy the extras-make your brain work! Keep trying...it's good for you!

Current favorite puzzle

I was surprised at how much I liked this game. I thought maybe it would be a throw away puzzle game but actually has a long list of levels. I'm pushed to try and get all the stars. Only complaint is that any bonus items require money and there isn't a way to spend in game points on those.
Good but....

At first, I was liking this game but it lacks instructions on what it takes to get three stars on the levels. I can play the same level over and over and not gain a star even though I know I did it faster. As you get into the higher levels, it's almost impossible to complete them. You start out with about 20 game helpers, but once they are gone, you get no more. Even though this is a free version, the game should never come to a halt just because you don't upgrade. That makes me not want to upgrade. I think you should earn some of the game extras as you play.
Was fun, at first.

This was a lot of fun, was. Then around level 4, when I ran out of the Magic Runes I started with, it became pure frustration. I attempted to beat a level around 15 times before giving in and doing the Facebook post to receive 5 more Magic Runes. Used 1 rune, the level was a breeze. 4 more levels and I was stuck again. I understand them wanting money. But I greatly dislike being railroaded into buying Magic Runes because that's the only way I'm able to complete a level. Rather than paying more money, I'm deleting this app and finding a game I can play where I can choose to support them, like Godville.
Game A+, Music D-
by Stoidykins on 2015/03/08 02:11
PLEASE split the sound into effects/music... I hate ghee fact that I have to listen to the music, or ANY music, because the only way to stop the game music is to turn on something else, I hate having to do that. Please give an option for no music while keeping the sound effects. (The sound of the tiles dropping is great) Someday it would be great to have a different set of tiles, too. But as long as I can turn off the music I would be happy.
Fun, but annoying after a while
by Tienbien1 on 2013/02/15 04:28
This game is really fun and addictive... at first. Then after playing for a while you discover that you can't win all of the levels without spending money. Some are impossible to beat without using the "cheats" that you pay for. Stupid. Then it gets more annoying when the game starts sending you 8 push notifications at a time when you already put the settings at 'no push notifications.' It's overkill. I understand that they're trying to make money but they take it too far.
Only game I play.
by Trojanette on 2015/02/05 09:07
I really like the added levels but with the newer version if you don't pass the level it just shuts down and have to reload the game every time. The first version didn't have that problem. Gets to be a drag to always start over from the desktop on the iPad. It is one the best games tho.
Fun game
by Nanakitteh on 2013/11/30 13:29
This is a pretty good game to play. It is sorta mindless like Tetris or Bejeweled. I play it while watching movies I have already seen! The trick is to touch runes to line them up on the bar below. If you get three of the same symbol/color, they disappear and clear the bar for more. But if you don't have three the same, they stay around and clutter up your bar. Ou win when you clear the page of all the runes.
Fun Game
by iPhad Noob on 2013/03/04 06:16
Fun game, many levels. Great way to pass the time when physically and mentally tired and need a break. The runes and sounds are appealing. It is a bit addicting though. Many times I've thought that when the one section ends I will stop but then I automatically touch the NEXT button instead of ending the game as intended.
good game
by Satanzangl on 2013/09/24 17:03
Edit - lowering rating because of app update. App takes up more space. The old tiles were easier to see, now it is hard to differentiate between the green tiles while playing game is difficult sometimes and there aren't any options to get the hints/undos without purchasing. Also wish the levels were sorted by difficulty instead of being all mixed together. Some levels hard to get all three coins. i like the game.
