Product Description

Jewels is a matching game which will put your planning and pattern recognition skills to the test.

The rules of Jewels are simple: you swap adjacent jewels (horizontally or vertically) to create combinations of three or more jewels of the same type. Once matched, the jewels are removed and the remaining jewels above it slide down to take their place. The challenge comes when there are few potential matches to find, and you must pick your next move carefully or risk eliminating remaining matches when the jewels shift down. Consider playing the timed mode where you race against a relentlessly decreasing timer and each successful match adds just a bit of time back to the clock.

If you cannot find a match, use the Hint feature to show you the next move. The game keeps track of your ten best scores for both Easy and Timed modes, so you can see just how much the pressure of the timer affects your performance!

5.0 out of 5 stars JEWELS is a Gem of a game! September 20, 2011
I've been waiting for someone to release a Match-3 game for the Kindle, and it's finally here!

JEWELS is a great Match-3 game reminiscent of Bejeweled...the mother of the Match-3 game craze. The way th1s game plays on a Kindle is about as good as you could get considering the limited size for game files.

Controlling the cursor to make matches is quite easy. Use the 5-way controller to move to the jewel you want. The cursor even wraps around when you reach the end of a column or row. Once you reach the jewel of your choice, press the center of the 5-way. The jewel will show four direction arrows. Press the 5-way for the direction you want the jewel to move, in order to swap its position with another jewel. The swap will occur, your 3-or-more jewel match will be formed, and your points will accumulate. This is pretty much the same as most Match-3 type games.

There are two play modes: One ends when there are no more matches available, and the other ends when the fill-bar drops to zero. In the regular game, you continue matching until you run out of matches. There is no time limit, which makes this mode a very relaxing game with no pressure. A black bar at the bottom of the screen progresses until it fills up. Once this occurs, you "level up" and continue the game. Each progressive level gets a little tougher. The game ends when there are no more matches available.

The second play mode is timed, and you can feel the pressure to find matches as the fill bar drops lower and lower. Making matches fills the bar slightly, and each progressive level makes the progress bar move slower with each match, thus making the game tougher the longer you play.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bejeweled without animations or sound effects September 21, 2011
Verified Purchase
I've been a Bejeweled fan for awhile, and played through games like Puzzle Quest and its sequel. Basically, you've got a grid of jewels, and can swap two adjacent jewels if that will line up 3, 4, or 5 jewels, destroying them.

Jewels does an adequate job on the Kindle. The grayscale gems are mostly distinguishable from each other, and the basic swap-2-gems mechanic is there.

However -- this game loses virtually all of the clicky appeal. Instead of 2 quick mouse clicks (on a PC) or stylus taps (on a DS), 8 or so clicks are needed on the 5-way to get the selector over to the gem, then 3 more clicks to do the swap. If it's 3-in-a-row or more, those gems will vanish, and all the gems above will drop down, sometimes triggering more matches.

But nothing special happens. No sound effects, no special animations, no special jewels. If you're used to any of the previous versions of Bejeweled or the many games that mimic it, you'll likely be disappointed with the no-frills version of the game.

I do like many puzzle games for the Kindle (Pirate Stash, Strimko, KenKen, Next, Lone Wolf), but this decent attempt at the super-clicky genre doesn't seem to work for me.

I'll mention Next again, by the same programmers. Superb puzzles, well implemented, and you're also moving jewels around. I'll recommend that one over this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Feels a bit clunky - Not a good match for Kindle September 28, 2011
Verified Purchase
I've played popgame's bejeweled online for a long time, and so I was intrigued when I saw this game was available. The basic premise is the same and you will have multi-levels drop if you match the right 3 jewels. I liked that the game does have a dropping visual effect, but I dislike having to use the 5-way controller to swap jewels. It works about as good as it possibly could with the limitation of the Kindle. I would rather play this game on a color device as an app-- maybe on the new Kindle Fire when it comes out!

::UPDATE:: I tried to find my Kindle Games listed on my new Kindle Fire thinking I would try this one in color. They are NOT there -- Not Every Word or Kindle Monopoly or any of the Amazon Digital Services and other games for Kindle. I have over 15 games on my Kindle 3, too.

These games only work on the Kindle 3 (keyboard) kindle or any of the Kindles with button navigation -- probably not on the new "touch" Kindles either because of touch screen navigation. If you buy this game, know that it won't work on all other Kindle devices. It's not the fault of the developer -- just a quirk in different device navigation.

2.0 out of 5 stars not great in black & white June 28, 2012
Verified Purchase
I got this game for my Kindle Touch, which means it is in black & white, not color. I love this kind of matching/puzzle game, but I find it hard to see. Some of the jewel shapes are so similar that you cannot tell which one it is in black & white. I have given up on trying to play it. I think it would be fine if you get it in color on the Kindle Fire.

1.0 out of 5 stars DISAPPOINTMENT October 21, 2011
Verified Purchase
I am a BEJEWELED fan, and was so excited when I saw this game for my Kindle. I immediately bought it and set about mastering it with glee. Not so at all. There is NOTHING spectacular about this game, not the gems, not the moves, not what happens when you make a 3-4 gem match...NOTHING. And to make matters worse, when you fail a level it takes you RIGHT BACK TO LEVEL ONE!!! What the hey? I am going to try the NEXT game that another viewer suggested, but short of that...i will stick to BEJEWELED. I would return it if i could!
