- A player should form matches by lining up 3 or more identical relics horizontally or vertically. Then swap two adjacent relics by clicking on both squares or by dragging one relic to the adjacent square. Relic is a part of the body of a saint or venerated person or it is a type of ancient religion object carefully preserved for purposes of veneration or a tangible memorial.
As relics are matched, the board spaces under them turn to gold. A
- Matched relics are removed and new relics will fall from above, filling the empty spaces. Often, this will cause chain reactions and those too will be scored and removed.
Hints are automatically given if no play has been made after a period of time, watch for two relics that quickly animate to see an available move.
- The more relics that are matched simultaneously, the more points scored per relic. Chain reactions will score even higher. Also, each space turned to gold is worth an additional 50 points.
Complete the level before the timer runs out or else a life will be lost. If the level is completed in time, bonus points are added based on how much time is left.
- The game begins with five levels. Bonus lives are awarded every 50,000 points. Lives can be lost either by running out of time or in rare cases by having no more moves available. The game ends when all lives are gone.
