Jeweller: The Cursed Treasures
Match 3 with a twist
I love it. This little " gem " is very entertaining and challenging. You have to match as usual but in the meantime you need to collect gems and place them in various jewels / talismans which sometimes only take a specific color of a gem. Don't forget to also fill up the little treasure chest which will add to your timer to get gold.
I only wish it would give you more time, the timer goes pretty quick and the tiles are not always easy to make out.
I don't mind them being small but the colors sometimes kind of wash into each other.
Before I knew it my demo time was over and I had to buy.
This game makes you think.
Towards the end of the level make sure to add to your timer before you place the last gem in your talisman, to achieve gold.
I enjoyed this game very much, but please make better looking tiles

Refreshingly Different and Challenging Match 3
Based on demo, this looks to be a winner of a Match 3!
Excellent graphics, sound, game play and level of challenge.
As far as I could see, this seems to be a Timed Only game, which may put some people off...and boy you have to work fast to get within the time allowed!
What makes it a bit different from other match 3 games is that when certain matches are made, gem shapes drop down from the bottom of the board, and you are then required to move these shapes into a piece of 'jewellery' on the left side of the game board, #after the style of mosaic-type games.# It is complicated by the fact that you have to place like-coloured jewel pieces onto the matching colour on the jewellery. Unused pieces can be dropped into a 'chest'. These 'chest' pieces mount up and when enough are there, you click on the chest icon and more time gets added. As I said above, you certainly will need the extra time, as it does take time to place the jewel pieces onto the jewellery in order to complete the jewel. #Right click is available to rotate each gem piece, in order to place it#.
So this is a fine Match 3 if you need a challenge. Only minor gripe so far is that the game board icons could have been slightly larger, although their clarity is excellent.

WOW! There's a lot to do so its not boring!!
This is a fun game. There is a challenge as there is a lot going on all at once so you are sort of multi-tasking. Trying to get enough of the same tiles to earn the power ups to give yourself more time. Also to get larger matches so you can get the gems to assemble the jewelry. While your playing the match 3 you need to also keep an eye on the gems at the bottom so it doesn't get full. You can dispose of the gems you don't need in the little jewel box at the corner on the bottom. You have the shapes of the jewelry and you need to grab the gems and place them. Eventually it gets harder as you also will have to match the colors and keep playing the match 3 game. Its not boring because there is so much to hurry and do. It is timed, challenging and fun...at least for me. Its really different. If your patient and listen to whats being said there is a nice little story to it. Once I got the hang of it I couldn't quit playing. It got very addictive as I was trying for the three gold stars in each level. I had to play it over a few times til I got it, if you give it a chance it is fun, and as you go along there are additional power ups to help you out. I recommend it to those that want a challenge ( : Have Fun!!!

Incredibly Hard "Time Management" Match-3
I've been obsessed with getting the "Gold" Bar at the end of each level and have been totally pulling out my hair! I need my Gold Bar!!! This game is not for sissies or people who want a game to relax to. At first I didn't like this game, but I restarted it and went through the tutorial again and it made sense and I've been addicted ever since. Although this game is "Timed" it isn't really - it only awards you with bronze, silver or gold bars - that's it and you have the ability to replay any level to get a better score. This game is a TM game with Match-3 sort of like Coffee Rush but without the Coffee - it's a 3-Ring Circus! Okay, I'm off to play #Grrrr!!!# some more!!! Gold Bars!! Gold Bars!!

Marvelous 3 match
After playing 40 minutes of the trail version I like the game very much. It combines 2 of my most loved games 3 match and filling mosaics. My only concern is that i can not play a long time, because in 40 minutes I finished the first level already. And for people who don't like to play on time its not nice. And I miss the graduations to play. easy, difficult and hard. But overall its a wonderful game

A Gem of a Game!!!
I love match 3 games and I loved this one. This one I must say has been more challenging then most. You have to makes matches which then gives you jewels, which you place in the talisman, but it has to be the correct colour. The bigger the matches the more power ups you have to use to complete the level, you get a bomb, or more seconds. I bought the game!! I definitely recommend this game.

This is one of the greatest match-3 games!
Relaxing, though being challenging, the game consists of several levels located in different countries and cities of the world.
The storyline has nothing new, but gameplay is addicting and well balanced.
Must have for all match-3 lovers!

A Sneaky match 3!
I usually buy all the match 3 games. I enjoy them - however, this one has the OOPS! factor. I am still playing this and running out of time and trying to put those gems into place and find a 4 of a kind to get more gems and get rid of the jewel boxes. A lot going on and it keeps my interest - totally! Love this twist on the usual Match 3. I am a fan.

Addicting & Exasperating
This is an addictive game (and exasperating) because just when you have one or more pieces to go - time runs out. You need to keep your eye on the meter and click on it as much as possible to stay in the game. Love it!!

A Flawed Diamond? Well, maybe.
I'm a fan of match 3 games and especially the unusual or challenging. So I was prepared to enjoy this one. And it has lots of good stuff. Sound and graphics are very good. No bouncy kiddie tunes (which are ok in a kid's game# and objects though small are clear and easy to handle. So why not 5's? Well, the big issue for me is the timer. For the tasks needed to pass each level more time is needed #at least for me) than is given. You can add time to the clock, but doing that steals time from the major jobs for the level. Because you have to repair the jewelry along with the matching, adding another 5 seconds may cause you to have to replay the who board again. If not for the time problem the game would've been a absolute buy for me. But the fun was spoiled by the increasingly short time and the multiple tasks required. But I'm still suggesting you give it a try. If your eyes and fingers are agile you may find this a fun experience.
