    RuneCryption is a memory puzzle game. Memorize the pattern before the rune stones scatter, then place the stones back in the same color order.

    There are three game modes:
    • Puzzle (Untimed)
    • Challenge (Timed)
    • Speed Play (Solve multiple puzzles before times runs out).

    RuneCryption is available in App World. It is also BB10-ready!

    If you want to try it out, there is a web version on our website, which can be played on the PlayBook or in a Flash-enabled web browser (the PlayBook version is a native PB/BB10 app).

    Small update just approved in App World. I also released an Android version and the update keeps the two versions in the same level.

    Yeah, I tend to be terrible at them, too. That's one of the reasons I created it - wanting to build up my memory.

    Most people can usually remember only a certain number of items, like 7-10 digits in a phone number, or even 16 digits in their credit card number. Trying to remember more is a challenge.

    The good thing is that the game starts off with four stones (2x2 grid) and builds off of that for each new level. I can get through all of the easy puzzles; still haven't made it through the difficult puzzles (I'm not even to the expert puzzles, and I created the game!). I'll be interested to see if anyone can make it through level eighteen (48 stones) without cheating!

    I also prefer the Challenge mode (which is timed) over the untimed Puzzle mode. The timer adds as little more to the game (at least for me).

    Version 1.3 is now in BlackBerry World.

    The new version adds level information to the scoring screen, along with Speed Play enhancements.

    I also added another easter egg. Someone contacted me looking for a way to extend the countdown timer for his wife. She has neurological issues and was looking for a game that could help with her short term memory, but the initial 5 second timer was too short for her to memorize the stones. I added in a multiplier to the settings screen so the timer could be increased up to 10x the regular interval (50 seconds on level 1).

    Version 1.3.3 went live today in BlackBerry World. Not a lot of changes to the game - just taking in some suggestions on game flow by users, and a little more highlight on game reviews (no nag screens, though).

    If you've already tried the game, I'd be honored if you would rate and review it.
