Jewel Quest: The Sleepless Star
Those who love and wait and enjoy pure match-three games are going to appreciate this one. Jewel Quest: The Sleepless Star is a fifth game in the series. Even thought the core gameplay didn't change too much, the game is still full everything you may need for a fast paced gem swapping.
Percy is a scientist and he is in search of a powerful jewel called the Sleepless Star.
In this game you walk away a little bit from Rupert and his rival Sebastian. You go back into 1901 to join one of Rupert's ancestors. His name is Percy, and you might remember him from the previous game, Jewel Quest: Heritage.
Percy is a scientist and he is in search of a powerful jewel called the Sleepless Star. You join not only him, but also a young Algonquin woman named Yellow Feather. Your task is to find the thieves and get the jewel back. All the searching is spread over six chapters and about 200 boards. You won't have to learn how to play it if you played any of the games from this series released earlier. And even if you didn't, you will still catch how things work here.
The basic goal for every level is to turn all of the tiles into gold. Once you've done that, the level is complete. But you can't spend forever on that because you are limited by a timer.
The game features different kinds of boards. For example, Climbing boards make you turn the bottom half of the board gold first in order for the rest of the board to become playable. Secret Entrance boards hide parts of the board from you until you make matches next to them. Dodge boards have giant blocks. All of these and the other ones have one thing in common though. And that is the difficulty the game reaches.
There are also different artifacts that you can collect as you play. Those are not just trophies to look at, but they actually work as the way to earn some bonuses to be used in the game.
The game's presentation is really good as always. The comic book graphics tell the story with all the dielogues voiced-over. The boards match the story stage you are in in the way the tiles look. So, all in all the game is a great match-three puzzler.
Match-three fans most probably won't be disappointed with this one.
