Magi-Swap is an addictive puzzle game. The object of the game is to accumulate the highest possible score and enter the High Score Hall of Fame - but beware the hidden twist in the game as the timer counts down. At the start of game a number of pieces are positioned at random on the board. Each turn consist of the player swapping a single piece with one in an adjacent square to obtain three or more consecutive pieces of the same type in either the horizontal or vertical directions. The lines of 3 or more consecutive pieces are removed from the board.
The gaps created are filled by pieces falling from above potentially forming further lines of three or more consecutive pieces. The sequence is repeated until there are no more sets of three or more pieces of the same type on the board.
However, be warned! Over time the pieces on the board will solidify if they do not move for any length of time. As pieces solidify so it becomes more difficult to find pieces to swap. A warning marker around each piece is displayed indicating which pieces are about to solidify.
