Summary: The other reviewers have done a great job capturing the look and feel of the game. I just wanted to add my two cents. I owned this game for the Mac and adored it. But, alas, when Mac OS X Lion came out this summer (2011), I could no longer run the game. Now I've found it again for the DS platform. Hooray! I play in relaxed mode and just get absorbed in it.
Summary: When I first started playing this game I didn't think there was much to it. I thought I probably wasted my money. I started playing in the relaxed mode to really get the feel of the game and each level gets better and better. I play some games in relaxed and others under another name in the timed mode. This is one of the most addictive games I have ever played and it was welllllllllllllll worth the money.
Summary: I had such a hard time tracking down this game at a normal price (twenty bucks), but finally did a few days ago and have been enjoying playing it SO much! It's a straightforward match 3 with no story or distractions. Finally one that just focuses on what the game is really all about! I can just turn this on, play a level or two or 20-30 or more. You can play levels 1-150 in order, and it will save your progress between levels automatically which is nice.
Summary: This is one of the best match three games ever!!!!!!!!!!!!! The sounds of the jewels are great, would have done more than the 150 levels. Loved the different broads, want more, must have a Jewel Match 2, 3, and/or 4!!!!!! This game rocks!!!!! Having Jewel withdraw, re-played under a second profile!!!!! Best, Best, Best!!!!!!! I brought this game for a person I got hooked on playing the DSi XL system. If you like Match 3 games, this is a MUST HAVE!!!!
