Anirah is an ancient Egyptian-themed tile matching game similar in some ways to the game MahJongg. This is not a typical Match-3 type of game, however. In Anirah, you are given a target number and then can match as many tiles as it takes to total up to that number. Tiles can be selected if they can slide off the board - straight up, down, left, or right. You could make a match with three tiles, or ten tiles, or even just one tile. The goal is to clear the board and proceed to the next round. How many rounds can you survive?
- 4 Gameplay Modes -- including timed modes and Dice Modes that generate new target numbers after every match
- 3 Difficulty Settings
- 7 Sets of Tile Graphics
- Geek Mode -- the not-very-secret secret mode that really twists your mind (choose binary or new hexadecimal!)
- Ridiculous Mode -- which doesn't number the tiles for an extra challenge (Only works on some graphic sets. I could have enabled it for all of them, but Stone? Papyrus? Come on, those would have been impossible!)
- Built To Be Casual -- you can quit at any time and Anirah will save your progress automatically
- Multiple Screen Resolutions -- runs in 800x600 for compatibility with older machines, up to 1920x1200 for higher end machines
