Rune Legend is an original award winning WP7 puzzle game with detailed graphics and a strong story inspired by the old Norse mythology.


The puzzle is based on a simple technique – the player’s supposed to place differently shaped runestones on the game board. Simple gameplay and easy controls make the game suitable for a wide range of players of all age or smart phone experience. Completing boards also trains spatial imagination. The game offers several different modes that the players can switch as they wish. The game content is therefore created by the players’ decisions. It’s up to them if they pursue the epic story of great wisdom hidden in the runestones or to think hard about finishing a round with as little turns as possible. Action players may appreciate the swift time mode or compete with their friends in the multiplayer mode.
