App description: Hot arcade puzzle action !
Styx is a hot new arcade-puzzle game with a new super-easy gameplay mechanic and non stop arcade puzzle action. The goal of the game is to try and make the longest paths of gems, fruits and other items for big scores! Sounds so easy but can get so mind blowingly addictive! Infinite number of levels, lots of power-ups and cool features and the game has 29 medals for you to try and unlock.

Very easy to play, but hard to master. The gameplay is so easy that kids have no problem understanding the game in under 5 seconds but even the greatest players will find it challenging to master. Styx has two game modes and supports personal profiles for each player. All the game statistics and medals are recorded individually for each user. An online Hall of Fame with the all-time top players or the current month's best players is available for you to make your mark.

Some of the features in Styx:
- 3 game modes with more to come. Puzzle, Timetrial and normal.
- 3 difficulty settings
- infinite levels
- 6 tile sets to play with and more will be added later
- numerous power-ups
- 29 addictive medals to achieve
- up to 5 user profiles for all the family
- great fun, addictive gameplay !
- online Hall of Fame. All time, this month and this weeks top players!
- hi-score lists for each mode
- cool music and sound effects
- 60 frame per second update rate !
- auto save function !
- iPod music mode, listen to your favourite tunes while you play
- free updates and support
- and most importantly, countless hours of endless fun !

NOTE! This is the OS3.0 or later version. I have submitted a OS2.1 version too (Still in review)

"Styx is probably one of the most addictive and original arcade-puzzle games out today for the iPhone. You will understand the concept of how to play the game within the first minute, yet the game still holds its value as you try to top previous scores." - slapapp.com


"More than just another Bejeweled clone, Styx offers original gameplay and features an intuitive and novel control system that is incredibly easy to pick-up and play. Bottom Line: Styx is a fun, addictive puzzle game with solid production values and a lot of polish. 8 out of 10"

It's a good game and I like how the various gems have different point values BUT, and the dev says he'll address this in an upcoming update, I wish there was an easier way to see the base point value of the piece you're dealing with so it would be easier to know do I go for the 4 red or the 3 yellow?

Video - looks like some Azkend type of moves - I like that game well enough to just purchase this one in hopes that game play is somewhat similar - although graphics are vastly different - and i doubt there is any story tying it together... But - looks like it will occupy some nice time...

Fun game
Have not noticed - I did not die, or get far enough to get to the score area. Pretty fun - not like Azkend though...
