2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't give you enough time to strategize December 6, 2010
By Kat312
Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of strategy games and enjoy thinking out the different moves and possibilities to find the best way to win the game. Unfortunately, these games give you a specific amount of time to finish each game, so you really don't have any time to think about different strategies. As such, you just end up quickly clicking on jewels and hoping for the best. It makes for a very dull time.

Graphics are good; story is interesting, but I wished they offered a timed and untimed version. With the untimed version you'd have as much time as you want to solve the puzzle (add some type of obstacles to the board, like bomb tiles to make it challenging).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great two for the price of one! May 9, 2010

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This has been a great deal. Two games for the price of one! Both for under $10! Jewel Quest II & III have been two of my favorite games to play for quite a while now. I'm able to play whenever I want without any "interruptions/commercials". It's been the best $10 I've paid in a long time!

3.0 out of 5 stars 50% fun July 4, 2011
By DM
Verified Purchase
There are two games included in this package:

Jewel Quest 2:

- timed challenges (no easy mode).
- for every 3 coins you make in a row, you get a coin, up to 100 coins. You can use the coins to turn yellow unturned spaces. This makes the game challenging, but also offers some solutions, case you get stuck.
- game can be played full screen, but resolution is small.
- works fine under Windows 7.
- 5 star game in this package.

Jewel Quest 3:

- timed challenges (no easy mode).
- you can no longer make coins that carry between levels.
- levels are more varied. For example, on the China levels, you need to drop monkeys in specific spaces that are 'cages'. In other levels, you need to bring down 'lava rocks' to melt some spaces.
- if you lose, it's not game over, but you get to replay the same level as many times as you'd like.
- this game is much more difficult than JQ2, because sometimes there is no strategy at all and just need the AI to work perfectly. No levels are impossible, but question is why would you bother play same level 50+ times, just because designers were lazy to provide you the tools to win. Publishers like Big Fish Games and Playrix make these type of games too and they are a lot more enjoyable.
- game works fine under Windows 7.
- 1 star game in the package. It's enjoyable in the beginning and extremely frustrating later on.

For people complaining they cannot find the game:

- make sure your Firewall allows the Amazon software downloader to run.
- start the software before downloading the game. You can find it in Start - Amazon.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been playing this game almost daily since I bought it. I can't believe I can get so much enjoyment from something that only costs me a few dollars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to beat but fun to play. A little addictive! November 29, 2010
Verified Purchase
Took me about two weeks of playing a few hours a day (I mentioned the addictive part, right?) to beat Jewel Quest II... I got to the end of the quest with 18 lives left and 84 special moves left so it's not difficult. But I liked the story and it was a little like reading a really good novel (except for the fact that no one would call it a really good novel :)... one more chapter... just one more chapter... and then suddenly you're bleary eyed at work the next day!

Jewel Quest III is harder because there's no score and no lives and no saving up your special moves... you just have to keep playing until you beat it (can you tell I'm currently stuck?) The story is also more disjointed because you aren't forced along their itinerary so there are introductions to action but no outcomes.

At any rate it is definitely good value for the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warning: could forget you have a life... December 27, 2010
Verified Purchase
This little gem (ahem) is literally one of the most addictive games I've ever played. It's not involved, there is no plot, nothing to hunt, shoot, no rpg plot to figure out, it is just plain addictive. You match three of many colorful gems and they disappear and new ones fall into their places. Sounds silly, right? It's not. It's habit forming. Staring at the colorful gems for 3-4 hours at a time may seem boring, but this game won't let you go, or I had trouble letting it go. Never got past level 5-10 in JQ2 and am still working on "Africa" puzzles in JQ3 - damn those monkeys! For under $5 bucks, you can't lose with these two games. But the most fun after you've had your fill of puzzle solving against the computer is playing against others online. It's very easy to do - just click "tournament" and you will be paired against someone (from all over the world) to get the most points before the time runs out. My record is about 112 wins and 36 losses in JQ2 online. Look for me (MacG or Skyelander). You'll like this game if you like puzzle challenges with an action tint. The colors may mesmerize you in time but then.....what was I saying??

9/10 stars for what it is...a simple, fun game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Won't save my game progress March 23, 2011
By Kep
Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed playing Jewel Quest 2/3 UNTIL I could not save my game. I tried reinstalling, checking system compatibility, etc but nothing changed. Very frustrating to play a game and then not have your progress or score saved. I'm through with downloading games from Amazon because I have absolutely no recourse.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for the elderly.
Jewel Quest 3 is not for senor citizens. It has time limits on the puzzle solutions that will constantly remind you of your age limited abilities.
