Jewel Quest is a fun game - the story line that provides that background is pretty lame. 98% of the game revolves around solving "Bejeweled" type puzzles of increasing difficulty. Pretty fun

MY only complaint is that at $30 Jewel Quest is one of the more expensive games for the DS. In fact for an additional $5 you can buy Zelda.... which is more of a true game. Jewel Quest is more along the lines of a game you would buy for a cell phone. It is fun and is great at killing time - but it isn't too in depth.

Pro's

- Fun puzzles can help kill significant time on flights.
- The DS stylus works very well for this game
- Lots of variety in the puzzles
- I like the use of the "Gold Coins" that allow you to complete one unmarked spot.

Con's

- A little expensive for the game's content - I think $20 is more appropriate but to each their own.
- The "story" is more annoying than anything.

As a whole - not bad - definitely worth buy if you ever see the game discounted on Amazon or on a discount shelf at a local store!

I like this game as it is along the lines of super collapse, the old tetris for the 1st generation game boy (which I had back in the day), and the luxor games. This keeps one challenged and entertained for hours as you try to get further into the complex and harder levels. It's replay value is there; once I get to the final level, I can see myself starting over and doing this again.

I became "addicted" to the Jewel Quest 2 game on my computer. However, when the computer screen kept freezing partway through the game, I had to give up the computer version. Now, I have the DS version, and have become addicted again to this matching game....Much more interesting than the Brain Age game.

If you haven't played the game, it's a variation of a basic puzzle game type, in which you slide pieces around on a board in order to make matches. You can only move a piece in one of the four cardinal directions, and once a match is made, the pieces disappear, and the spaces that the matched pieces previously occupied turn gold. Pieces will fall from the top to fill any empty spaces, which sometimes results in massive, screen-clearing chain-reactions. The ultimate goal is to highlight every square on the board before time runs out.

While the early puzzles are easy, difficulty soon ramps up. Partially obscured pieces appear, which require you to match them up with like-colored pieces in order to free them up. One more match takes them out completely. Later puzzles involve pieces that are totally obscured, and require a bit of guess work and one extra step to clear. Some puzzles even require you to turn each square silver, and then to gold in order to clear the board. Throw in hazards such as a monkey mask that undoes any spaces you've cleared if you match three of them, as well as progressively tough board layouts and new puzzle pieces that appear every so often as you progress, and you've got a game that will challenge any dedicated puzzle fan.
You have one helpful tool to aid you in your Quest, in the form of Lion coins. Make a match of three of these coins, and you'll have the ability to clear a single square. They can be used at any time, which means that if you play your cards right, you can stock-pile a few of these before you reach the more difficult puzzles, which makes things a bit easier. The game is still pretty difficult in later stages, but the inclusion of these "saves", so to speak, ensures that the difficulty never gets too out of hand.

It is fun and challenging. I specially like that it gives you little pop ups that tell you about new challenges that come up in every level.

This game SUCKS as far as I'm cocerned First of all The rules of the game says to turn all the backround of the jewels to gold to complete the challenge & get bonus points i have completed some challenges and got bonus points for it in the first few games but since then i have never gotten bonus points again even after all the background of the jewels have turned to gold just a Times up! message and then it asks do you want to play again?

This Is a "Cute Little Game. Can I at least do without timers in the way? Losing coins-losing extra lives-can be wasteful! But this Is a very colorful game that can really keep you moving on. Keep plenty in stock for those who want this game. I thank the seller through Amazon for this.

I am addicted to this game. I have wanted a game like Bejeweled and dummy me did not realize for a while before ordering this that it's like the game I have on my computer which I love. When I got it I was so excited and playing it is just so much fun. I've advanced levels, lost my score and am determined to continue on and regain my high score again. The only difference between this and the computer game is when you use your bonus life it only clears the block you click on, in the computer version it clears all of that color but that's fine. I'm enjoying it very much. I highly recommend it. Great game.
