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!

Jewels is a really fun pattern recognition game that works very well on my Kindle Touch. Although Kindle Touch has a black and white screen,the different shapes are clearly and easily distinguishable. The object of Jewels is to swap adjacent jewels so that patterns of at least 3 of the same type of jewel are created in a row either horizontally or vertically. For Kindle Touch users,simply slide a jewel into the space next to it to swap 2 jewels. However,there's a very major flaw in this game: You actually have more control over your own score in timed mode than in relaxed mode. In relaxed mode,once the board runs out of matches,the game is over. But when the board runs out of matches in timed mode,it refills itself if you still have time. It should never be easier to control your score on timed mode than on relaxed mode. Another weakness is that,because there is no set number of levels,you never get the feeling that you won the game. I think it would be better if there 10 levels each for both timed and relaxed mode( this is common in Kindle games,including my favorite kindle game,Thread Words.) with the board refilling itself when the moves run out regardless of mode. To win,you'd have to complete all 10 levels. In spite of the weaknesses,Jewels is still a great game. That said,in Timed mode,your best strategy is to make all moves you find as soon as you find them. In relaxed mode,however,the best strategies to get a higher score are.

1. In the case of horizontal matches,try to match jewels higher on the board first. If you match jewels lower on the board first,you risk losing some potential matches as the jewels slide down the board after your matches are removed. If you have >1 horizontal match,match the horizontal match highest on the game board first.

This simple game is height addictive for me. I have had it for about a week and find it difficult to put down. Is sounds so simple to search out "jewels" that can be combined into a threesome BUT it is NOT. Thankfully the game offers some help tips to keep thing moving along. Great time burner that actually may have some benefit for my old rusty brain. Good value for $1.99.

However, with practice, it does become easier. Although, I play it on kindle, so there's no color and non of the special effects, such as nailing a bunch of icons when you get 5 in a row.

Not recommended for a serious Bejeweled fan, I would recommend it for someone who simply wants to relax and play it in it's simplest form...especially if you're tired and just want something to stop your mind from reeling when you're trying to go to sleep.

this game is really fun for 3 matchin gamers and can get u 2 unimaginable scores just with 1 swipe of a jewel. this game can get u swept right into its grasp the moment u stat playing.

i would reccomend this game ages 4-99 because it can make tons of people would love this game the moment they started it heck the moment that i started playing this game i got sucked in 2 its grasp and since then iv been playing this game or else play beJEWELed 2 straight from the tv.

if u want 2 know how 2 do this go 2 time warner cable and ask 4 a cable box then turn it on and go 2 either channel 433 or channel 552 and maybe i will see u. get this i have this person on the game whos either polore or fife ball funny names right thts why i gave them those names.

There is no "speed up" as you go up levels, so if you are good enough to get through a few levels (and if you only play when there are no interruptions), you can probably stay on one game until your Kindle battery breathes its final breath.

Maybe I'm too good at this game. But I've been working on the same game for so long ... I realize that in order finish this game I'm going to have to just sit there and do nothing. But it seems like the game doesn't want me to lose. I watch the timer bar at the bottom. If it gets close to running out of time ... it ... ADDS MORE TIME! Just 'cause? On the flip side, it can take some fast maneuvering to score quickly enough to go up a level.

It is better than not having a match-3 jewel game on my Kindle. Every time I decide to play I challenge myself to get to the next level. Then I stop.

Oh, it eats up battery life faster than any other game I've got.

This game can be difficult to play on my kindle because I think without color (I have the Touch), it is harder to see the jewels. Some of them look very much alike when they are not.

I have played this same game in different versions elsewhere, the most recent being Jewel Quest. One thing I like better about JQ is that the game will give you a hint if you get stuck. I haven't experienced that in this version, and I have gotten up to about a level 7. So you get stuck and are "stuck" just sitting there staring at the screen!

This game is fun enough to play occasionally on my Kindle, but I do have to pay attention because of the lack of color and difficulty seeing the pieces.

I've had the Bejeweled game for quite a long time on one device or another so wondered what a version of this same type of game would be in just black and white.

It is harder visually but I have played Jewels enough now to say that your eye does get better at distinguishing the various shapes. It is still fun after all this time. It is missing the extra "tricks" of Bejeweled such as getting power jewels when you match more than 4 jewels at once.

I do appreciate the hint system that shows you a move you are having a problem seeing on your own which helps keep eye fatigue at bay and the fun factor up.

Well worth the small cost.
