Good game, but was rather dissapointed at how short it was. I usually expect more from Jewel Quest. Wait for the regular game. The premium is not worth the price.

I usually love the games in the Jewel Quest series, but this one had way too much HO and not enough match 3. I like mixing things up, but I got very tired of finding all of the hidden objects, some of which were impossible to find without a hint, before I could play the jewel board. I did like the mini-game where you had find objects at the end of each part of the story. When I see a Jewel Quest game, I want to play the board. An occasional diversion is fun, but this was just too much.
i totally loved the premise of the game. doing the hidden objects mixed in with the match 3 and the horrible pipe puzzle. lol! the story was alright, but that was 2nd to the game itself. i enjoyed trying to find the 3 coins for the extra hints and all the jewels hidden about. the biggest joy was at the end of the chapters when you have to "fix" something in order to find 20 of an item before time runs out. that was slick. the ONLY reason why i gave it a 4 and not a 5 is because it wasn't long enough. i was hoping for maybe at least 2 or 3 more chapters. not sure if it's a fun game to replay yet. i'm in the middle of the first replay. it's not as fun as like a zuma replay, but so far it's ok.
Beautiful and no too hard. I really love this game and my child too. 100% recommend.

Did I miss something in the download or what????? I have many JewelQuesy games, which I love, but this one left me out in the cold. I have played many hidden objects games as well. Is there supposed to be a list of items to be gathered as in other games???? If not, then the games does become more challenging. I perserved for about half an hour in the free play, but gave up.

this is my least favorite Jewel Quest game. it's a HOG with jewel boards to play at various places in the game. i usually find the stories intriquing in the Jewel Quest games, but this one didn't grab my attention the way the other ones did. just average for me. hope u like it more...if this is the 1st Jewel Quest game u've played and found it disappointing, don't let that keep u from trying the other JQ games. they're all unique and entertaining. keep 'em coming Gamehouse!!!!!!!!!!!
I bought Jewel Quest Mysteries of the Seventh Gate and I adored the Hidden Object part of the game, so when I saw that there was a Platinum Edition of the game available I bought it, thinking that there would be more of the wonderful Hidden Objects to be found. Instead I got a bunch of puzzles and match 3 jewel quest games attached to the end of the original game, like an afterthought. Still, I gave Gamehouse more credit than they are due for this game, thinking if I played through the extra stuff at the end, I'd be able to access more of the Hidden Object part of the game but no! So basically, I've paid for the same game twice!! Don't fall for the same trick as I did, just buy the original game without the Premium tag!! You are not missing out on any sort of Premium Game whatsoever.
I play a LOT of HOG games and this one is a very good one. The items to find are well hidden and some are downright hard to find, but that is what makes the game so good. The hints are gathered by collecting 3 coins per hint and are rather hard to come by, so you need to make them last. I usually stay away from the match-3 games because they tend to bore me, but this one is well integrated and a few of the match-3 levels were quite challenging. My only complaint about this game is that it is a bit too short on the game play. I finished the game in just about 3 hours. However, I recommend this game to anyone who loves HOG/Match-3 games and wants a bit of a challenge for an afternoon.
Usually love the JQ franchise but this was just too annoying. In the HO scenes, some of the objects are so small and obscure that you need a magnifying glass to see them. I was struggling seeing things from a distance so had to push my nose up at the monitor to look closer. The other frustrating element is that if you run out of time you have to do all 10 scenes on the map again (collecting 12 objects in each)! And if you get stuck on the pipes, it could be that the first one they give you to do is just not possible (I've read other forums to find that they had the same trouble). To rectify this, reset the game, say no, and get a new pipe game up which can be completed.
Now, I like a challenging game, but when it gets to the point of frustration, eye strain and boredom, its too much. I played about an hour-and-a-half and am finding I'm forcing myself to continue. Scenes are repetitive, hints charge slowly and some HOs are VERY difficult to find, even after using the hint button. Scenes are basically just clutter without any relation to the city you are in. So far I have visited the same scene 2-3 times already with the same HO objects to find. It had gotten to the point when I said UGH, not this place AGAIN!!! and I'm not even done playing yet. Don't know if I'll go back to finish. To close my review, I will also say I hated the Jewel Boards. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too slow.
Another great addition to the Jewel Quest family. Very pretty scenes to search for hidden objects, jewels, and coins. The jewels can be used to purchase power-ups for the jewel boards and collecting 3 coins per scene gives you an extra hint. The storyline is good and the mini games fairly easy. I did have to use hints more than I like since some objects are very well hidden, but still thoroughly enjoyed the game. The extra jewel boards are great too!
I am a big Jewel Quest fan. While this is not my favorite, it was entertaining for an evening. The game was a bit short, even with the additional boards.

I have played all the Jewel Quest games and this one is my least favorite. There are too many Hidden Object vs jewel boards for my taste. I like the ones with mostly or all jewel boards.

It's aggravating when hidden objects are SO hidden that you have to take a hint and still can't find them.

Like the other reviewers I found this game has no gripping storyline. People are missing, they're still missing, still missing...... Nothing ever happens to get you closer to finding anyone, and frankly by the end I didn't care. Puzzles were sparse, and mostly it was just looking for dim objects over and over again. The last match-three game with the pearls was impossible for me to solve within the time limits and I'm no novice at match three. Time runs out and I wasn't about to go through the last part again since it was so tedious to begin with so I just quit! Not worth the time I waited for this to download.
Another fun Jewel Quest game, if you played them before you know they are great hidden object games with added bonuses and story. Beautiful scenes, and some things are hard to find, but I like that. I need to be challenged.

I did not like this game. I find any and all games that have you racing a clock to sort through trash in a land fill for semi look-alike listed items a total waste of time. In my opinion, this game requires little skill. The one puzzle was a simple rearrange great big pieces to fit on a small frame, kind of like the first puzzle I gave my 2 year old. He found it an insult of his intelligence, as did I. After playing such high quality games in the last couple of weeks, I would give this game a rating of "L" for loser, if I could have; However, I recommend you decide for yourself, if this is your type of game.
