Jewel Quest II
Jewel Quest II
The second game in the jewel quest series, which includes both Quest and Tournament modes. Gameplay requires turning all tiles to gold. Story progresses by way of journal entries using hand-drawn graphics and handwritten notes. Chapters include Rupert's Heartbreak, Emma's Apology, Grenard's Revenge, Hani's Regret, and Back to Africa. Nice progression of boards with increasingly difficult challenges. No option to disable timer, so some boards require multiple tries to master.

My favorite match three and puzzle game
This game gives hours of fun and is not a quick run through like some of them. I am stuck on level 3-6 if anyone has suggestions. There are truly some puzzles that take some strategy and thinking.

still an excellent game
I always like to have a M3 game on the go and my favourites are the Jewel Quest range. As I had completed all the games and I wanted something to play I decided to go back through them. As you would expect they have come along way since they started but I still really liked this one. It had a good level of difficulty without ever feeling it was impossible. If you are just starting out on the Jewel Quest, I would recommend starting with this one.

I believe this is the best game I ever bought. I've had it for several years and still play on it almost daily. You can play until it gets so hard you can't make it any farther.I'm on super hard 2-1 and I think it's the end of the line for me but I keep trying.

Absolutely one of the best match 3 games ever.
This is one of the best match 3 games ever developed. I have played through it a dozen or more times. Challenging and fun.
The story line is very engaging.
Tournament level is fantastic. You play against people around the world in real time. This is my favorite part of JQ2.
The only annoying part is the music. Luckily, you can mute the music without muting the sound effects.

Not that old nasty timer again
When will the developers of these games learn to make it with and without the timer. There are some of us that are a lot slower than the young people. You hate to buy a game you never can finish. I would love this game but even before the trial ran out I almost lost my time so its a no buy for me. Why can't the developers take some of these time games and go back into them and change it, really don't know if that can be done, but a lot more people would buy.

The variety of board styles is great
I really liked this game. It kept me entertained for hours and hours while visiting family for a week. Lots of different styles made for enjoyable play time.

A broken heart turns into a man at sea.
A scholar and gentleman has lost his heart to a girl named Emma, who has chosen an heir instead of him. In dismay, and too old to join the Navy, he becomes indentured on a mariner going to Africa. He is scorned by his sea mates, except for one named Hani who tells him tales - but only at the completion of each gem board level - so the story continues between each level.
I found the story confusing, as it starts out as noted above, but then relates how grateful he is for the Captain''s leniency in letting him leave the ship early. But, then, discounts how he is fearful of asking the Captain just that....hm. Also, the story is shown on pieces of a map but then jumps to a page in a journal then back again...another hm.
Otherwise, it's a typical match 3 game. There are no bonuses for making 4 or more matches. But, periodically, coins will show up on the board. Match 3 to get a "special", which is basically a bonus that allows you to destroy one file on the game board. Collect as many of those "specials" as you can because they will come in handy when time is running out and you have a corner or difficult space you can't clear.
If not for the confusing storyline, I probably would have given this game 5 stars. But, I rate story lines high on my list. Especially in a good match 3 game.
I will encourage everyone to try it before you buy it. Maybe the inconsistencies won't bother you as much as they did me.
