Summary Puzzle Chronicles is a puzzle/RPG hybrid game in which the player places and merges colored gems and eliminates them with similarly colored special gems. By eliminating skull gems, the player can build up attacks which are displayed on the battle screen above the puzzle screen. After each match, the player earns gold and experience, allowing the player to enhance abilities and gain new skills. There are also mini-games which consists of variations on the match-3 puzzle genre.
This game was developed by Infinite Interactive, the same developer behind Puzzle Quest.
