Jewel Match 3
Great match 3 that never gets old
While I don't really need a storyline to explain why I am making matches, I enjoyed the mythical story that came along with this game. It helped keep things fresh, and advanced the gameplay along with the story.
The occasional minigame and hidden object scene seemed to pop up anytime I felt like I was getting my fill of match 3 goodness, and invariably added in another spell for me or another obstacle to the board so that the complexity was always advancing.
It won't be long before you are powering up impressive spells, and moving from board to board to gather keys, treasures, and mana to clear each level.
This is simply a great game that constantly improves as you play, and since there are 3 levels of difficulty it provides a ton of play for your money.

can play often and not get bored
the match three is always changing so no board never looks the same. Game can keep you going with many things to keep track of. Keeps your interest for long stretches. Music is a little depressing.

Clearly a winner.
Jewel Match 3 is clearly a winner. It is the best of the 3 Jewel Match games, although the other two are very, very good, too. This game is a M3 game which is also an adventure game, and it has hidden object screens and puzzles. Somehow it combined all of those elements and still was a great deal of fun to play and visually very nice. I pushed to get to the end of the game and then was disappointed that it was over. Yes, there is a strategy for playing, in order to maximize the jewels collected, and knowing what things to buy. It is really easy to figure out, and that makes the play even more interesting. I?ve never played a better M3.

Jewel Match 4?
Excellent game! I do prefer flowers like in Babylonia game, but loved this one for the mysterious quality from level to level where you have to find a key to open the next section of the game to proceed.

Love This Game!
For those of you that enjoy Match 3 games, I highly recommend this game.
Gameplay was great with a good story line that does not take away from the game.
The best thing about this game is the OPTION to play without a timer...YES!

Jewel Match 3
You have to move from one playing board to another and obtain keys and then go back and finish the board you were playing on. This was challenging with time constraints and even though I have finished the game once I have gone back and played the game again. .... and you get lots of play as you move from one land to another ...

The Best Music
This is the longest game I've ever played. You really get you moneys worth. The music, for me, is the best. Very stress free. I can't believe a game like this for younger people could have such beautiful music. I can't stop raving about it. It's not very challenging, but I play it to relax.

M3 Swap with a "twist"
Basic Description: M3 Swap where the object is the clear all the tiles on the boards. Use your collected gems to restore the wizard castles and set them all free. Can play timed or untimed.
The "twist": Each level has several boards and some are locked until the correct color key is dropped to the bottom. On some levels you can move between boards in any order, in others it can be "maze-like" to unlock / move through all the boards.
In addition to upgrading each castle, you can also plant a garden with seeds that are found in the M3 levels. Clearing these plants of pests and watering them progresses the story faster.
Bonuses: There are two types of "clear bonuses": your magic (takes mana / energy) or the wizard's power (timed recharge). Mini games (HOG or Puzzle) are played to upgrade your magic abilities. These abilities are standard: clear fog, break tiles, destroy a single tile, destroy tiles in a pattern (row, X shape), create random "special" tiles, etc.
Game Complete: The game is 110 levels (if I remember correctly). If you complete all the castles early then you get bonus levels up to 110. Afterwards, the game will reset and you start back at level 1 (all wizards back in ice). In addition, there is a "Manic Mode" that is a never-ending, timed, increasing in difficulty, mode where a few minutes are added to the time for each level you complete... until you run out of time. That mode can be "suspended" and will restart where you left off when you return.
Overview: Lots of gameplay. Good graphics overall but I'd go for Great on the M3 boards. Can get repetative at higher levels but the board "mazes" and spell upgrades are nicely spaced with mini games. (but almost everyone seems to ask "does this ever end")

Great game except...
Love the crisp graphics and sparkling details except for the big ugly guy's face at the top of the page, which I have been trying to whack with the hammer, but so far no luck. Like the strategy of having to go from one page to another to complete. Makes you have to think and overall it is a very relaxing and soothing game to play.
