Before the match-3 level begins, you get a notification of the mode you are going to play. Some modes are timed and some have a certain amount of moves.
In Step-by-Step mode you need to break all the chips before you run out of moves.
In Timed mode you need to break all the chips before time runs out.
In Faded mode all the chips are colorless.
In Night mode you need to move the torch around the screen to find possible moves.
Avoid matching the skulls in Skulls mode! When matched, skulls add more tiles to the field.
In Blitz mode you need to match chips with the clock icon to earn more time to complete the match-3 level.
Treasure Hunt Mode is available in the Cave. You need to dig up all the treasure to complete the match-3 level in Treasure Hunt Mode. Match the chips over the ground tile up to 5 times (sometimes 2, sometimes 4, etc.) to destroy it. Different match-3 levels have diffident difficulty. Keep an eye on the treasure counter!
Drop the Item Mode is available in the Sphinx. There are items in the match-3 level that need to be placed in cells which have been especially marked. The quicker the level is passed the more chances there are to get a unique reward.
Golden Tablets Mode is available in the Pyramid. Your main task is to paint the required number of cells gold to pass the match-3 level. Make a three-in-a-row combo and the golden tablet will paint neighboring cells.
