Product Description

Gem Spinner II
Make matches to earn stars
Spin Your Way Around the World

Ready to go on a treasure hunt? Gem Spinner II: Water Quest is the sequel to the hit puzzle game, offering a twist on the traditional "match three" game play. You're a globe-trotting archaeologist trying to restore gems taken from priceless artifacts. How do you do this? Puzzle boards, of course!

Each board contains colored gems encased in pieces of different shapes and sizes. Switch adjacent gems within a piece to line up three or more in a row. They'll vanish and be replaced by more gems. Make as many gem matches as you can to reach a high score on each level.

Piece de Resistance

The twist to Gem Spinner II's game play lies in those pieces. You can move the pieces around and rotate them to make for matches that aren't otherwise possible. That new flexibility is what makes this game special.

But they'll also add complexity to your strategy. Each time you make a gem match, that part of a piece goes dark. If the entire piece is dark, it vanishes completely. Clear away the smaller pieces too early, and you'll be stuck for matches to get rid of the big ones. You'll have to plan your matches carefully to get ahead.

Gem Spinner II
Those pesky suns limit your ability to move pieces
Here Comes the Sun... Unfortunately

But that planning had better be quick, because you're working under a time limit. Take too long, and nasty suns appear to block piece movement and mess up your carefully laid plans.

Fortunately, you can also earn sparkling gems that add ultra-flexible one-cell pieces to the board. You can also use Casual Mode, which turns off the time limit for a more relaxing experience.

Playing Tourist

There are puzzle boards waiting for you all around the world, from the jungles of Central America to the shores of the Caribbean. Complete all levels at one destination to unlock the next. Fifty levels across five locations, all accompanied by beautiful background graphics, will keep up interest for a long time to come.

Earn as many stars as you can on each level, and shoot for that elusive and difficult Perfect award. There are even challenging puzzle levels with set gems and goals that'll really test your mettle!

So what are you waiting for? Those gems aren't going to be matching themselves!

2.0 out of 5 stars First one much better October 25, 2011
I was very excited to see a new version of this game come out. I loved the first one, so I thought this one would be fun too. Its a unique puzzle game, but they took it in the wrong direction. Its way to cutsie and bloated. I have a fairly new and fast phone, but the game was unresponsive at times. It would take way too many taps to get the whole cell to spin. When I matched a gem set it would move just fine, but to make it spin...quick taps, long taps, many taps...it would just be hard to get it to spin. And another thing, the irregularly shaped cells that had no way of being spun were annoying. I usually don't like to put down a small game dev, but this is not fun. I put it down after two levels and I still play the first game months later.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice addictive puzzle game January 8, 2013

Simple, easy to learn, progressively difficult puzzle game. Attempting to get full stars on each stage can add additional goals for the obsessive compulsive.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good enough, but too big October 25, 2011
By sland
Nice twist to the overdone 3-in-a-row games. I can see most people deciding between this game and one of the other 20 games on their phone that Amazon has offered as a free app. And even though it takes a different approach, it's still a big file (19MB) and I think that is the deal breaker for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars At first I was ticked I bought it April 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
Because I couldn't figure out what the heck I was doing but once I figured you had to do the normal match 3 but not by dragging but by tapping one and swapping the correct gem I had it made...i thought. But the part that had me horn-doggled was how to match any others once the obvious were done. I finally figured it out when I hit the "Hint" button and it told me to double tap any jewel to rotate the piece! Ah HA! After using the Hint button a few times to get the feel for it (I'm playing in casual mode) I finally got it and it's a BLAST!!! And it's a long playing game as there is a button on the bottom right and you change the gem for the rings and it starts fresh all over again.

Playing on a Kindle Fire HD and I highly recommend this game!

5.0 out of 5 stars addictive January 1, 2013

When I uograded my phone to Jelly bean, the app suddenly would not work - I contacted the developer who was very respectful & he was working on an upgrade - he fixed the problem and now it is even better than before - I love puzzle games and jewelry match and this game is both - very unique as well. I can't wait to beat it again :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game! December 29, 2012

Very addictive. A variety of boards keeps things
interesting. Maddening block shapes often make things look simpler than that are.
