The tiles have images of Egyptian Hieroglyphs. There are no tiles who are worth more or have any special features.


You try to clear the layout by combining two identical tiles. Tiles can only be selected if they are not blocked on the left or on the right by other tiles. In addition, if a tile is underneath other tiles, it can not be selected.

Time Limit

There is no time limit in this game, however the score is determined by the time it takes you to clear the layout. So being fast is still important!


As mentioned above, the time it takes you to clear the layout determines your score. Your score ticks down from 1000 with 1 point per second. Matching a pair of identical tiles increases your score with 100 points. Asking for a Hint decreases your score with 100 points.


Selecting two tiles is simply done by clicking on them with your mouse.
