Do you enjoy playing Ketchapp’s chart-topping Breakout-style endless arcade block-breaking game, Ballz, but wish it had a bit more style and personality? Well that’s exactly what’s being offered by Charming Runes, an iOS game from Shooty Skies developer Mighty Games.

Watch the trailer

Bounce magical pickaxes. Just drag your finger across the screen to set your aim and release to hurl all of your pickaxes in that direction. You have only one pickaxe to start with, but you’ll get another pickaxe every time you break open a pickaxe rune. Be sure to break open as many pickaxe runes as you can, because there’s no better sight in Charming Runes than a stream of pickaxes bouncing around and breaking blocks in their trajectory with total abandon.

Bounce magical pickaxes
Use magical power-ups

Use magical power-ups. There are several power-ups that can help you keep disaster at bay. There’s the RuneScope, which lets you see the exact path your pickaxes will take even before you throw them. There’s the RuneSmasher, which is basically a supercharged pickaxe, able to inflict three times as much damage as a regular pickaxe. There’s RuneBoom, a magical potion that explodes when thrown and destroys blocks around it. There are also special items that you can collect by breaking special runes.

What is it about?

A spiritual sequel to Mighty Games’ Charming Keep, Charming Runes is like Ballz but with lots of whimsical fantasy and plenty of gameplay depth. Set deep below Fairylandia, the game has you helping Birby the Canary mine for enchanted runes. And to do that, you have to break block after block after block.

For those who...

  • enjoy block-breaking games.
  • like Ballz but wish it had more to offer.

Not for those who...

  • dislike endless arcade games.
  • prefer non-numbered block-breaking games.

Why we love it

Charming Runes may seem at first to be little more than an endless arcade block-breaking game cashing in on the immense popularity of another game with similar gameplay. But in reality, it has much more to recommend itself than being a mere reskin. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Charming Runes has graphics and sound effects that are, well, charming. The best thing it has going for it, though, is the depth of its tactical aspects, from the variety of blocks to break to the selection of power-ups to aid in block breaking.
