Overview

The Mighty Zeus welcomes you, challenger. Enter the arena and play Rivers of Olympus, a tile matching game similar to Mahjong Solitaire. To win the game, clear all of the tiles from the grid by matching pairs with the same symbol. Two tiles can be cleared if you can draw an unbroken imaginary line between them. But there's one very important rule. The line can change direction, but no more than twice.

Rivers of Olympus is based on a Japanese game called Shisen-sho (sometimes called Four Rivers) that originally used Mahjong tiles. If you'd like a nice change of pace from the same old jewel matching games, you'll enjoy the unique gameplay offered by Rivers of Olympus.

Includes six grid sizes to keep you challenged. The smallest 7x4 "nano" grid will get warmed up. Once you've mastered the game, you can advance up to the largest 18x6 "ultra" grid with 27 different symbols.

Play a Casual game to relax, or try a Timed game for a bit more excitement. The casual game lets you undo moves and ask for hints. It's a great way to learn. Timed mode lets you keep track of your best times. All moves are final in Timed mode, and you won't get any hints. Play against all of Olympus, and try to surpass the best times of Artemis, Hermes, Athena, Apollo and more.

    Fun, Good Brain Exercise

    Keeps your brain on its toes. Having a lot of fun with this one. That other reviewer is wrong. A valid move is more than just a clear path. Like it says in the description, the line can only change direction twice. I've been playing for hours, and I've never had it tell me that a valid move won't work. I love it. Get it!

    Great puzzles

    The larger the grid you choose, the more challenging it is. In my opinion, it is in a class by itself and not similar to MahJongg.

    Nice game! Fun and Challenging...

    Love it! Reminds me of a puzzle game that I had on my cell phone. Was looking for something similar and found it with "Rivers of Olympus". Was hard playing on the cell phone due to the small screen, but for the Nook Tablet, it's perfect. This game looks and plays great! Wish there were more brain games like it.

    Thank you, Developers, for a wonderful game!

    All it needs is global scoring. How about it Devs?
