What's great about it: Everything
What's not so great: Can't quit playing
Just when I think I have it all, I get thrown for a loop. I have enjoyed playing this because it is a game that you can't beat right off the bat. The only bad thing is....I can't seem to quit playing for less than six hours at a time. I would recommend this for the young and the old.

What's great about it: If you're a reader and you like Indiana Jones-like story lines and the puzzles challenges are addictive
What's not so great: The simplicity of the graphics, no action graphics to coincide with the story book, and you can get stuck in the puzzles
I chose this game because I thought it would be similar to Bejeweled and it is in some ways. At times though I skipped over the story just to get to the puzzle challenges and later went back to read the story. The graphics are not great and I think I found some continuity discrepancies in the story. The price was great though. It's entertaining enough for the price. Not bad, but not spectacular.

What's great about it: The price was very good for what you get
It's a fun game to play a little different than some of the others a little more of a challenge for those of us that are not wiz kids on the PC games, just Gramma's trying to join in on the fun. It starts out easy and works its way up the ladder of challenge. It took me longer than a few hours to get through it which was a nice change.

What's great about it: Levels progressively get harder
What's not so great: Nothing!!!!!!
We bought this game as a birthday present for my dad. He used to have to buy Wild Coins from WildTangent in order to have his progress saved and to keep playing it. He really enjoys it!! He spends an hour playing it with us several nights a week. The graphics are phenominal, and the game is way better than Jewel Quest. I would recommend this game to anyone who enjoys a good puzzel.

What's great about it: Easy to learn but not so easy you get bored
What's not so great: not really a con, but you have to find where you left off on the globe each time you open the game.
Another great jewel quest game with lots more levels to keep you busy. This time the levels are divided into sections of the world and each one is new and challenging. It's still a match three game with several twist that I really enjoy. I am only 40% through this one but I have run across having to put monkeys in cages in one chapter, another you need to get pearls to the bottom of the grid to get to jewels you can't reach otherwise. Each chapter is new and I look forward to seeing what will be next. With this one you can play against players on line, which I haven't tried yet but sounds like a good feature. I can't wait to see what Jewel Quest 4 will be like. This is a great game and I still love playing Jewel Quest after all these years.
I would recommend this to a friend!
