A mage casts a dark ritual to gain power. A chaos demon granted him power but the mage must also spread chaos and take over the land and so the tale of Necrox begins. The classic mage elements are now stronger but there is also the power of chaos which allows the mage to summon skeletons to unleash powerful attacks.
We created the game Necrox. It is a single player match 3 game with RPG elements. The game was primarily built for Android devices but it also works on Apple iOS devices. The game was created inside of Unity. The project was kept on a private repository on Github. Github Desktop and Gitkraken were used along with the repository. The code was written using Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code. Most of the art and animations were created using Adobe Photoshop.

The game is divided in two sections: the top section, where the combat between the main character and an enemy takes place and then the bottom half, where the match 3 game takes place. The player has to match tiles which activate the main character’s magic with different effects and the enemies attack at different intervals.
We completed our main goal, which was to create a complete game that can be further improved upon. Currently there are 15 levels that the player can complete. Each level has an enemy with its own set of combat base stats. There are 4 different types of tiles to try to get matches of 3 or more. The most common tiles are fire, which do damage to the enemy. Water and earth tiles are the next most common. Water heals the character and earth gives a stackable defense against the next enemy attack. Last are the chaos tiles which are harder to get because they are the least frequent but deal more damage than fire tiles.
The Game will be available on Google Play store but get the beta version here!
