Lights out! Can you memorize the board and match elements in the dark?

Memorize the board, match hidden elements, produce gold, upgrade the machine, and fight the ever so quickly increasing pressure. Play online with up to 3 opponents to determine who has the best visual memory or fastest fingers and collect their gold by defeating them!

Take a break from classic matching games and see if you can master this new twist!


In Aureus the player is tasked with operating the elements of an electrically charged gold producing machine. The machine operates in the dark, with all elements hidden from the player. Matching similar elements creates an electrical current which briefly illuminates part of the board, disintegrates the matched elements, and produces gold.

Players must rely on their memory to match hidden elements. Speed is likewise essential to master the Aureus which has a strong tendency to overheat. Skilled players have the option of using gold coins earned over time to upgrade the machine. Upgrades can reduce pressure, slow falling elements, or minimize the impact of failed matches amongst other benefits. Once fully upgraded, Aureus provides its fastest game mode with frantic gameplay.

At a basic level, Aureus can be played as a tile matching game with a twist. At the most complex level, Aureus demands a combination of strategy, dexterity and memory. The most efficient way to play is by making a succession of small matches to regroup similar elements, followed by more complex matches to produce large amounts of gold coins. As the pressure increases, the player must master a balance between speed and memorization to optimize the number of coins and the final score.

Aureus features 3 game modes:
* Endurance: the classic mode, with continuous game play until the machine breaks
* Time Trial: the perfect mode for short sessions, with game play limited to 90 seconds
* Online: a multiplayer mode in which players can challenge up to 3 opponents

Enjoyable and has a fair level of ad serving compared to play time.

This is a great game for memory and free version comes with limited advertisement exposure. Very fair of the devs IMHO?
One can buy additional gold to upgrade features, but you can also earn it with play time.

All n all, an enjoyable game.

Good game but a little bit to hard

I get the point of the game is to improve memory and it’s not bad, but that also means that it is not as fun. It would be great if there was a game mode that made it so whenever you completed attaching matching blocks together the whole board would light up for a time that depended on the amount of blocks attached in that single chain. So if you only attached two blocks together the screen would light up for a few milliseconds, likewise if you made a huge chain the screen would light up for a second or two. They could also make it where certain block chains like a two by two would create an exploding block that could be attached two at another time to create an explosion or multiple of you had other explosive blocks nearby or attached on the same line. Think of the game bejeweled.
