As an Intro App, Eye of Ra Lite May Leave you Wanting More

This app is not currently available in the App Store.

Eye of Ra Lite by Olaf Schneider is basically another tile matching game, one of the many Bejewled knockoffs that have come out over the years. The twist here is that the tiles are not jewels but different colored hieroglyphs and there are also some helpful Extras that you can pick up along the way.

Anyone who has played Bejeweled will know exactly what to expect of Eye of Ra Lite, outside of the Extra factor that is. For anyone unfamiliar with this style, the game is for the most part a screen of blocks that you have to arrange into rows or columns of three or more by swapping them. Once aligned into a complete row or column the stones will disappear and more will fall from the top to fill in the gap. To solve a level and move on to the next you have to complete a certain number of matched rows or columns before the time runs out. 

When it comes to Eye of Ra Lite, simply arranging the stones is the extent of the game, as the Extras are only available in the full version.

The closest you will get to the Extras in this version is the description in the Help section: different "treasures" found under certain stones to do things such as move you to the next level, remove some stones, or show you possible moves.

In the Info section of this Lite edition you will also discover that the full version has high scores and more levels as well.

As with most games of this kind, Eye of Ra Lite is pretty fun for what it is. One main problem though is that it takes only a few short minutes before you have completed all three levels in the Lite version and you are asked to purchase the full one. Also, without the use of the Extras you don't get a real taste of the game until you cough up some cash. So, if you like what you see here then you will have to buy the full version, but, if you are just looking for a fun matching game for free I would try something like Aurora Feint.
