Jewel Match IV
Jewel Match Magic
It's been a while since we've had a really good match 3 game, and this game doesn't disappoint. You can choose several modes of play, normal timed, relaxed and untimed, and lazyday with no timer and no limit on moves. You can also choose to play just the match 3 games with none of the mini games provided such as hidden object finds. This game has a unique feature where the board doesn't fit your screen, after all matches are made the board will automatically scroll or you can right click and drag the board to expose more of the board. Usually there are 3 separate rooms or boards more as you progress, when the first board has been cleared you click on the arrow to bring up the next board. Some gems are chained some under fog etc. and you can click on the portrait of one of the magicians which can help remove obstacles or clear the fog. You can purchase bonuses with the coins you earn at the shop as well. This is a really fun and unique match 3 game, enjoy!

Something for (almost) everyone!
You could be a HOG fan who also likes Match 3.
You might be a Match 3 fan who likes a bit of HOG thrown in.
You are possibly a dyed-in-the-wool Match 3 fan who cares not one jot for HOGs.
BUT, if you hate Match 3, do not try this game.
There are 5 modes of play:
* Normal (timed with adventure)
* Relaxed (untimed with adventure but limited moves)
* Lazy Day (untimed, unlimited moves with adventure)
* Match 3 maniac (timed, no adventure)
* Match 3 maniac (untimed, no adventure)
Graphics are good, especially on the intro. You have a voice there but not once you get into the game.
The game play area is bigger that the screen so you have to scroll around looking for areas to 'attack' (I imagine this will provide good challenge for expert M3 players).
I played 'Lazy Day' as I am a rank amateur, enjoy a bit of a story and hate timed games. I really enjoyed it and found it very relaxing.
The story is no prize winner, but is engaging enough.
Definitely one to try!

Great Game From Excellent Developer
After having played this game most of the day I've decided to give them a 5 star rating. This game is much more than a M3. It has something for everyone. I have all the Jewel Match games and they are without exception the most beautiful graphics I've seen in any game. The progression that this developer has made is phenomenal. They have gone from producing simple M3's to a game that can be as "tear you hair out" challenging or as many of us wish, very relaxing,

Absolute Jewel Match Heaven!
Well, I will find it difficult to contain myself in reviewing this game! There are just so many beautiful and nicely done features within the game that it just has to be definite 5 Star material.
I could not find anything at all to fault this game, and I recommend it most highly.
If you have played any of the previous ?Jewel Match? games in the series, you will know what to expect. This fourth edition has added extra dimensions and features which make it a real joy to play.
It continues on the whimsical fantasy theme of version 3 and has an interesting and joyful story attached that just makes you want to continue playing, as there is always something new to discover around every corner. Integrated in a clever way throughout the game are hidden object scenes, and mahjong boards (the latter I didn?t come across in demo, so must appear later).
The game has so-called ?floating? boards. I know there are a few players who have a dislike for these. Fear not, you can actually disable this feature and instead, right-click and hold right mouse button to shift the board to where you want it. I found also that you can use scroll wheel to move up or down. So, kudos to the developers for including this in the options. Nicely done.
As to sights and sounds: The graphics are of a high resolution with gorgeous colourings, and all the gems have more sparkle than before. Not only that, many are animated, making for a visual feast for the eyes. They have also improved further the sounds that the gems make when matched. Again, a delight to listen to. Ambient music is of zen type, so quite relaxing, but can be lowered or turned off.
Add to this, imaginative use of power-ups and other aids, and you have a game which is flawless, fun, and a joy to play!
Each Level consists of ?rooms?, and you have to complete each room before advancing to next level. There are several modes of play, including Timed, Zen and
Lazy modes. The latter is a super-relaxed mode for those that wish to chill-out completely. In the timed mode, I noticed that if your time is running out, it gives you the option of trading a ?life? for more time to complete the level.
I haven?t covered everything in this review, but you will glean from it that I am very impressed indeed.

Great game for m3,majhong & hog lovers
This is a great game lots of interaction. You have several options of level to play from very easy to more difficult whatever mode you wish. You have to help find the wizard, by playing the levels and buying buildings and tools to help you along the way. I found this game to be very relaxing but very addictive ,kept wanting to play more levels to go further into the story.

Big Jewel Match fan here.
I own all of the Jewel Match games. This is one of my favorites. I bought it after only playing the demo for about five minutes. Nice sounds, good variety of challenges. I expect many hours of game play here and most importantly lots of repeat game play possibilities.

Beautiful and Relaxing!
What a pleasant game to play! The graphics are simply beautiful, the music is soothing and the storyline makes sense. I like the way the screen will move around to areas that still need to be played. The player is also given the option of whether or not to use the timed mode or just relax and enjoy the lovely gems. A great way to unwind and a welcome change from HOPA games. Kudos to Big Fish for grabbing this one!

This is definitely your best jewel match game yet. I tried the free 1 hour version and decided I had to buy it after about 20 minutes. I love how the gems are so sparkly, and that you can move the board around. Very pretty game. I would certainly recommend it.
