BackgroundIt's the classic gem-swapping game that started the craze. Swap adjacent gems to match 3 or more sparkling jewels. The more matches you make, the higher your score. And if you're ready for a bigger challenge, try the Time Trial.
GameplayYour goal is to change the places of any two gems that are next to each other and create a match of three or more similar gems. You can only swap gems that will result in a match.
For instance, you could swap the purple triangle near the #1 in the picture by clicking on it and then clicking on the round gem below it. All three triangles would then disappear, you would get points, and then the gems above the triangles would drop down in their place. You get extra points for making more than one match at once. By matching the triangles in the example and making them disappear, the two green gems above the middle triangle would fall down on the two green gems below the middle triangle and would make a match of four. You would then get extra points for making two matches at once!
As you make matches, the bar at the bottom of the screen starts to fill up. When the bar is completely full, you will progress on to the next level. When there are no possible moves on the screen, the game ends.
