The mighty Egyptian god Ra has transformed you into a Scarabeus and then put you into the depths of a pyramid for 1000 years. The only chance Ra left you to get back to human form and out of your prison is by solving the riddle of the pyramid. But that's a very dangerous task...

Ra is a nice puzzle/logic game by Rainbow Arts with an ancient Egyptian theme. The game plays like Chinese game of Mahjongg, crossed with Sokoban and a dash of Rainbow Arts' own Logical for good measure. At the most basic level, it's another clear-the-field-by-matching-same-tiles kind of game, although each level is cleverly designed (with missing gaps to make moving pieces harder), and pieces are cleverly placed. Fun if you like brain-teasing games in this mold. As an added bonus, the the game includes a level editor and a so-called "arcade" game mode in addition to the logic one to appeal to fans of quick-decision games.
