Jewel Legends: Tree of Life
cute and fun at first.....but
I bought this game because i was happy that other things than HOG were offered. The little fairies are cute and the music is pleasant. But after a while, even so the symbols changed, the music became annoying, the constant filling up the 3 meters tedious.By collecting coins you collect power ups but the amount of the real good power ups is pretty high, so you can only use very litte of them in one level. I quit before I played every level, i could not stand it anymore, sorry little elves.

Love at first sight!
What a beautiful and fun game! And don't let you be fooled by its looks childish, it has a good level of challenge. The gameplay is as the same as Cradle Of Rome. And we also have a 100 levels to play, so the price worth it for. I recommend it for all the "Match-3" lovers!

Sorry but I didn't enjoy it once I bought the game. For some reason it was fun during the trial after that, I found it hard to win at this game. There is a one part or phase then you have to beat the tubes of liquid but while your doing that, you need to repeat the matches over and over again until you top the black line on each tube, then you win. I found it to be, what's the point after a while and not worth winning. No challenge after the first phase. Very disappointed.

Lovely visuals, distinctly average gameplay
This game has lovely graphics, inoffensive music and a basic storyline where you are rebuilding a magical village in the forest following the removal of a demon that was terrorizing the people. You earn bricks by breaking tiles and each brick builds you one section of a building - you sometimes have a choice of which bit to build next but other than that its pretty boring. You also have to fill three meters by matching 3 or more pieces, one meter for each type of piece - all tiles have to be broken and all meters filled before the level is completed. There is a choice of Timed or Zen mode, timer seemed generous. You earn money to buy powerups such as a hammer to break a tile, new powerups are added as you progress through the game. I didn't play this for long as I found it tedious with little challenge - breaking the tiles (and chains later) is easy, filling the meters takes longest and is stultifyingly boring. There were no mini-games whilst I was playing so if there are any they are infrequent at best. If you like more challenging M3 games such as 4 Elements and Heroes of Hellas then I would give this a miss.

At least the Hods are happy again?
I'm not. I wanted to like this game but after only a few levels it just felt boring, tedious, wearisome, and repetitive.
I completed the game, buying a lot of power ups -- especially the extra time. I usually like the challenge in Match 3 of beating the clock -- it is simply an annoyance in this game. Besides, there is really no challenge since it is impossible to run out of money to buy power ups, and they are always available.
I got really tired of having to collect more pieces to finish the levels after the board was cleared -- a feature that seemed so innovative during the demo.
Jewel Legends Tree of Life might be best as a go to game (unless you feel compelled to earn the "played for 2 hours straight" achievement) .
What I was most impressed with, and what probably inspired me to buy the game, was that it was in true HD wide screen -- not just stretched. But lovely graphics were not enough to make this game fun.

sometimes pretty isn't enough
Like other reviewers I got sucked in because the demo was fun and the graphics were really fantastic.
Unfortunately, this game got really tedious rather quickly. The meters take FOREVER to fill up. Which is good if you're just mindlessly trying to kill some time. It's one of those "I've got 15 minutes until the pizza is done and I don't feel like watching teevee" kinds of games. Definitely not even worth $6.99 game club price. Might be okay on daily/weekly sale.

Entertaining & Captivating
Graphics are clean & precise and the match 3 is of sufficient difficulty to make the game enjoyable. To enjoy watching the progress as you continue through the levels is rewarding while relaxing.
Children of all ages will enjoy this a great deal.

Classic Match 3 with Beautiful Graphics
If you love the relaxation of just swapping tiles, give this game a try. It is a classic Match 3 without much of a storyline and not highly challenging, but sometimes that's exactly the type of game you want to play.
The best thing about this game is the graphics. The tiles are beautiful and change frequently. You can choose timed or untimed play. I enjoy that there are two goals on every level. You not only need to match over certain background tiles, you also need to match certain types of tiles to fill up meters.
This game is just a nice, basic Match 3 and I recommend trying it.

A keeper this time
I am not disappointed in this game at all. I get tired of the hidden object games with all the searching from one scene to another. I love Match games and I am truly loving this game because it is refreshing and easy on the eyes. Could it be more challenging?? Absolutely, but for now this will do. Please send more Match games Big Fish!!
