Summary: I love Jewel Quest. I find myself playing this game when I should be going to bed! Sometimes I get lost in the game and forget about the time. One night I was up until 2:00 am playing and I had to go to school the next day. The only problem I find with my game is that it gets stuck sometimes when I'm playing and then I have to turn the game off and start over again. It seems to get stuck always when I reach the Jewel board.

Summary: With two games on one DS cartridge, Jewel Quest Mysteries is a really good deal. The first game, "The Curse of the Emerald Tear" is excellent. The second, Mysteryville, is not as good but, for a bonus game, it is enjoyable. As a stand alone game, however, it would probably disappoint.
Summary: If you like puzzle and hidden object games then this is the game for you. Two different games with the same general concept- to find stuff. I love puzzles and Love this game. Mysteryville is a little harder than jewel quest. Both super fun games though.
Summary: I bought this came on Saturday night. By Tuesday night I beat both games. I would call myself a casual gamer, I play about an hour or two a night, on Sunday I didn't have much to do so I might have played 5 or so hours (off and on in one hour increments). So I feel like I got a total of maybe 10-15 hours if that out of this game. Good thing it was so cheap!
Summary: I really enjoyed this game. On Jewel Quest the levels definately got more challenging as you progressed and there was even a game similar to the bejeweled game. However, when I got to the 7th or 8th level, the bejeweled game would freeze and then I would have to repeat the last level I completed. This went on for about 3 levels. I contacted Amazon and since I was within the thirty days they refunded my money.
Summary: Jewel Quest Mysteries/Mysteryville offers two solid seek-and-find adventures, and it's a great value (basically two games for the price of one). Jewel Quest Mysteries is particularly good because it has some nice puzzles and match-3 "jewel boards" thrown into the seek-and-find mix, and the time limits can offer a bit more of a challenge than some seek-and-finds.
