Enjoy Classic Gem Crunching Fun with Jewels

While there are many types of games available on the various app stores, sometimes a simple classic is just what you are looking for. Settle into some classic gem crunching fun to while away the hours in a relaxed fashion or test your skills as you race against the clock with Jewels.

There are four game play modes available: Normal, Timed, Quick, and Infinite. Just choose the one you want to play when starting a new game. If you want to alter the settings before settling into game play, then tap on the More… Button to access them.

Note: Ads for the iOS version only appear on the Main Menu screen.

All settled in for a nice bit of gem crunching fun. The background image will shift every so often to reflect different times of day and provide some variety. Different gems (colors) will also stand out better at times depending on the ‘time of day’ currently displayed. Have fun!

Note: If you choose to use hints in the game they will be subtle in appearance…a momentary sparkle on gems that can be moved.
