Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

The classic match 3 game has just gotten better!

Line up 3 jewels or more to acquire them. You will need to get a certain number of each type of jewel as indicated in the goals before you can proceed to the next level. Getting 9 or more jewels in one pass will yield a power. Each power is more effective in certain situations. As the difficulty increases with each level, you need to use your wits and power ups to help you.

Game Modes:
* Classic - progress through levels without a time limit
* Time Attack - same as classic mode but with a time restriction
* Endless - an easy, relaxed game mode where you collect as many jewels as you can

Powers:
* Aphrodite's Kiss - removes 1 jewel
* Rage of Ares - removes 9 jewels in a 3x3 area
* Hermes' Message - switches the location of any two jewels
* Arrow of Apollo - removes 1 row of jewels
* Wrath of Zeus - removes 1 column of jewels
* Rise of Poseidon - reverses the location of the jewels vertically
* Craft of Hephaestus - changes all jewels of one type into another
* Kronos' Halt - pauses time for 30 seconds

Jewels:
* Citrine (Orange)
* Sapphire (Blue)
* Emerald (Green)
* Ruby (Red)
* Topaz (Yellow)
* Diamond (White)
* Amethyst (Purple)
* Aquamarine (Light Blue)

    Perfect Stress Buster

    This game is very relaxing and fun for those times when all you want to do is chill out. The board and gems are pretty, and the music is soothing. The power-ups add an extra dimension of fun to the game.

    Other people have mentioned problems with the Nook Color freezing up, but I'm at Level 48, and so far it's only locked up once. I tried the suggestion of hitting the central Nook button and then returning to the game. Worked perfectly!

    This is a great game -- I highly reccomend it!

    Hours and hours of fun

    What's better to pass the time while waiting for an appointment than one of these classic jewel match games? Nothing. They are tons of fun. This one takes the original match-3 concept and spices it up with some pretty cool special power ups, and a more meaningful level-beating system ('collecting a set of jewels'). Tons of fun!

    A+

    Excellent game, colorful, love all the power-ups. I am on level 37, wish I knew how many levels there are. Also, would prefer a traditional scoreboard. Every 4 levels or so, the game freezes but easily undone by turning Nook on & off with home bar and takes you right to where you left off. Relaxing to play, challenge increases with levels. Worthy of 5 stars. (Catpurrson)

    One of the best jewel apps.

    I've checked many jewel apps, and this one ranks high as far as having nice looking, colorful, shiny jewels. One of the things I like best about this app is that the game does not give you hints. I like to find all the matches myself, without the game deciding that I've taken too long and telling me where the next move is. There are both classic and time-attack modes. One suggestion I would make for an improvement is that the activation of the power-ups should have an accompanying sound effect. That would add to the level of immersion. Overall a very nice jewel-match app.
