Review Jewel Epic

Evgenii Kostrov
7.6Good
Jewel Epic is an ordinary arcade game for Windows Phone of the genre of "three in a row", where you will find a huge number of different blocks with different-color patterns that resemble jewels. Of course, there are quite a lot of such games, but this one has some schticks with which the previously published counterparts cannot boast.

Game features

The first thing that this game is different in from its predecessors, is that by playing it, you cannot relax. The playing fields of each new level will have different forms, but you should be concerned not about this but about beige and blue tiles covering some of the cells. You will have to destroy them, and it can be done only one way - by collecting on these tiles chains of three or more identical elements.
The beige tiles get destroyed together with stones that lay on them. The blue tiles also get destroyed but in their place not an empty cell appears but a beige tile. That is, in those parts of the playing field where the blue tiles are located, you will have to destroy a minimum of two chains of identical stones. The gameplay grows more complicated with the fact that you will need to cope with the task either for a specified number of moves, or for the allotted time which means that it is impossible to quietly play Jewel Epic in any case.

Gameplay nuances

The game has another interesting feature which may be the cause of questions and long discussions. The fact is that the stones get destroyed completely only in case when there are not more than three of them in a chain. Once you bring together four identical stones, they will be combined into a single crystal of the corresponding color shaped like a diamond.
This crystal can be used as a third stone in another chain of the right color, and at the same time after its destruction the whole strip of stones arranged on both sides of the sharp corners of the diamond, will be wasted. If you collect in a single chain five or six stones (the latter is possible in cases when the chains are L-shaped), you will get a multicolored circle which can be used as a third stone in chains of any color.

Surprising ending

Once you make your last move (regardless of whether you are stopped by a timer or have exhausted the limit), several bonuses will appear on the playing field trying to rectify the situation or to help score more game points. You may get lucky and the next chains disappeared will clear the playing field of blue and beige tiles but, frankly speaking, this is quite rare. That is probably everything that can be told about the gameplay.

Resume

The graphics in the game are very good but special effects are clearly not enough, and the animation limps. The sound is too modest as well and, in our opinion, it is better to play while listening to music or with no sound at all.
