There's a plethora of matching games on the App Store, so why add another one? Because there's still so much more you can do, especially with the help of ARKit and movement tracking.

A three-dimensional mode fueled by ARKit. With an optional in-app purchase, you can unlock a three-dimensional mode where your lawn or floor becomes a platform for the puzzle.

A traditional two-dimensional puzzle

A traditional two-dimensional puzzle. Symbol Run is a matching puzzle, with a traditional two-dimensional "match 3" play style ... in one mode.

Go on a "Symbol Run" for more moves. If you run out of moves, the game will prompt you to go on a "symbol run" for more. You just walk a certain number of steps for extra moves.

What is it about?

Symbol Run can be played normally, in a two-dimensional view, but where's the fun in that? Instead, I sprung for the in-app purchase to unlock the augmented reality three-dimensional mode.

Why we love it

On particularly difficult levels, strategy is really key. If you don't play the symbols right, you can find yourself running out of moves. The game does provide boosters, like Thor's Hammer, but those are currently few and far between. Instead, the game focuses on making you more active if you run out of moves. When you run out of moves (and you probably will, at some point, because this game is quite challenging), you can go on a "Symbol Run" for more. The game will instruct you to walk a certain number of steps in a short amount of time, and then awards you with extra moves. Be sure to carry your iPhone in your hand at your side when you're doing this, moving your arms naturally as you walk. Otherwise, the steps you take might not be recognized. Check the screen periodically to see how you're progressing. Sometimes, those extra moves will be enough to do the trick for you. If not, you can always go on another Symbol Run for more moves.

App Store Description

Symbol Run - where the game meets the real world

Help Snojken to match blocks with ancient symbols. Explore new levels alone or challenge your friends to see who can get the top score.

The game explores new concepts such as augmented reality and step counter to let the player interact with the real world.

Symbol Run features:
• Continue with Facebook to see your friends score (the game doesn't post anything on your Facebook page)

• If a level is too hard, you can choose to take a short walk to get some extra help (requires iPhone 5S or later)

• Symbol Run is completely free to play but for a better game experience (and too support us), we recommend that you buy the optional Augmented Reality mode (AR).
(The AR-mode is an in-app purchase that requires iOS11 and iPhone 6S or later)

• Boosters to help along the way

The game has a limited number of level. Can you finish them all before we release more?
Ensure you allow Symbol Run to send push notifications, we will then notify you when more levels are available.
Symbol Run requires iOS version 10 or later.
