Jewel Quest Mysteries: Trail of the Midnight Heart
I liked this games balance of hidden object scenes & match 3, but a few more match 3 boards would not have gone amiss. The graphics are great, there is some repetition of scenes but the objects get harder to find each time. This is a long game, well worth the price.

A wonderful game
I really enjoyed playing this game. It's 20 levels, with 3-5 HO scenes in each level and a jewel puzzle at the end of each. The journal entry at each level tells the story of the Midnight Heart. The game is timed, and I ran out of time twice, but that's not too bad. When you repeat the level several of the items are the same, so it's much easier the second time. In each HO scene you look for jewels, which buy bonuses, and coins, which buy extra hints. Once in a while there is a moving screen and you have to find 20 of a certain item as it scans along. The only downside to the game was that some items were very hard to find, which is why I didn't give it 5 stars. Otherwise this is a fun and well-made HO game.

My fault - expected Match 3
I really enjoyed the original Jewel Quest years ago and purchased this one thinking it was a good Match 3 game. Not many match3 boards; mostly hidden object scenes. And those HOS were a little difficult on my eyes -- too many tiny objects, well hidden.
I'd have liked it better if they'd at least doubled the # of match3 boards. Lost interest in the storyline early on; found it rather silly. That said, I'd recommend this game to those who are very fond of HOS.

Meh-didn't finish my trial
It was so so--not enough scene variety for me, the art ok but not as clearly drawn as I would like, and the puzzle was always the same. I don't usually pay much attention to the story line, but it seemed juvenile. So all in all, I give it a C.

this series is getting boring
Always the same ol, same ol, getting oldfashioned. Items can be very small, don't like squinting all the time. But please do try it, you might love it!
