Summary: Play all of the JQ Solitaire, and one JQ sleepless star. Gave up on Sleepless Star half way through because I got so frustrated. Sticking with this one so far, but do find the story lines in between a bit frustrating and changing characters frustrating. Its not my idea of a great game, but will persevere and hope for the best. First time I have opted for a Premium game, so hope its worth it.
Summary: I really liked this one. It was not your usual match 3 game. You had to light fires to clear the fog, or catch monkeys in a cage to move on. I can't disagree more with the other reviewers. I liked the story, the music and he gameplay. This game is different and at times difficult. (to me that is) I only can recommend this game.
Summary: To some degree I enjoyed this game; however, I feel the programers were amatures at best. The most upsetting aspect of the way this game worked was getting matches and yet not all of the spaces would turn gold. I often saw four, five and even more jewels matched in a row and not all of them turned the space to gold.
Summary: I am an avid fan of the Jewel Quest series and waited with baited breath for this one to come out. However I find myself somewhat disappointed for several reasons. The sound is sporadic at best. I have tried it on 3 different PC's and still have the same problem. I have also downloaded from Spin Top and still the same problem. Also it does not tell you what you need to do in order to achieve a gold star.
Summary: This is the first game of the Jewel Quest series I’ve played so my perspective may be a bit different; if the game is too like its predecessors, I would not know. I found the match-3 gameplay solid if not inventive, generally as engaging as any bejeweled based match-3 game can be. The storyline is presented comic-strip style and was interesting enough with decent voiceover accompaniment though Native Americans may find some of the artistic liberties taken offensive.
Summary: I used to be a Jewel Quest fan but after playing several sequels, it got more & more boring because it was the same old same old. I especially hated the Trail of the Midnight Heart because the developers had ventured into the hidden objects genre & failed miserably. The only interesting one on another previous release was I was able to go online to play challenges with people from all around the world.
Summary: If you are a Jewel Quest fan you definitely will buy this game, but if you haven't played any Jewel Quest game, then I recommend buying Jewel Quest 3 instead. I think Jewel Quest 3 is still the best one of the series, and you can now get it with a huge discount. Trust me. When Jewel Quest Heritage was out I found there was no Tournament Mode and some levels are extremely hard and annoying.
Summary: For a match 3 game, this next installment in the Jewel Quest series is not too bad. The graphics are superior and there is a hand drawn comic book like voice narrative to go with each boards of jewels. I did not like the fact that the developers failed to include a skip button for the tutorial, which keeps popping up annoyingly.
Summary: I really like this game and the boards go right along with the story. It has great added features which help you play. So, great variety in the boards, graphics, story and bonus upgrades ; all make this a great Jewel Quest.
