The Jewel Quest games are not the common HO game where you have to find objects (like keys or tools) to help you advance the story, interspersed with HO scenes. The Jewel Quest games are ALL HO scenes with a match 3 between levels. There is enough challenge to keep you on your toes and wary of time. I had to redo a few of the levels because I ran out of time. However, you can save coins that you find and use them to buy extra time and hints. This is a fun game if you're looking for a lot of hidden object scenes and challenge.

I have enjoyed all of the Jewel Quest Mystery games. I particularly like the blend of mostly hidden object but also match 3 and, in some cases, other genres.

This is a fun game! To advance, you need to find hidden objects, including jewels and tablet pieces. When you have a complete tablet, you have earned the right to play Match 3 on that tablet. Once you win that, you have completed a level and can advance to the next. Watch out for dark screens where the hidden object is hard to spot. The game is always changing, challenging and addicting and I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys Hidden Object and Match 3!

I am playing this through for the third time and I have only owned it for a little over two weeks. For the reviewer who said there were no hints, they are called "Specials" and are red buttons. These can be bought at the end of each section so that you have more for future use when you cant find what you are looking for. I would like to see more different things to find in subsequent games but it is still challenging and addicitive

Enjoyed this game. Thought there would be a final puzzle to solve at the end. That kind of disappointed me. Overall a good game.

Loved the game. A few of the scenes were a bit too dark to see the hidden items, but still, all in all, it was a great game, great value. Have recommended it to several friends so far.

Just enough Match 3 and Hidden Object puzzels. I enjoyed playing it very much.

Hard enough to be interesting. Changing choices of items to find makes for good replay

Extremely addictive and challenging. I do like the Jewel Quest Boards with no play limit...

More than just new objects to find. I liked last year's game, but this one is better-even though there is no "hint" button, you never get hung up. It has enough little interesting tricks at every new level that it feels like a new game. There is no "hint" button, but it doesn't leave you 'hung up' if you get stuck. This is probably the best game you've offered.

I loved playing this game. It was so addicting I hated to stop playing and do something else.

No too hard, no too easy. Graphics are beautiful and the sound is really good, but is long and a better ending.

Great combination of a match-3 game with a hidden object game! Enjoyable for everyone and even great the second time through! Try it - you'll like it for sure.

I loved this game and the way the storyline goes. I liked hunting for the jewels and game pieces and enjoyed the match 3 game you got to play when you found all the pieces. It is not a real challenging game, but more of a relaxing game for those days when you don't want too much of a challenge.

Most enjoyable. i have all the Jewel quest Games. This one is one of the best. It is a puzzle along with hidden objects and most of all not boring or too easy. A top notcher.

I played this game thinking that it would be so easy that I wouldn't enjoy it. But I was wrong I liked it alot. You can play it over and over. I thought it was worth the money.

Jewel Quest Mysteries: Trail of the Midnight Heart is a tough, but fun game that combines hidden object and match-3 puzzles in a frenetic pace. The overall story is a real snoozer about your standard Indiana Jones quest. Fortunately, we can skip past it and get to the action. As far as the hidden object games are concerned, these are some of the toughest puzzles I've seen. Items become part of the drawing instead of being placed randomly within a picture. Many times I've clicked for a hint and it's pointed out an object that was hidden right in front of my face. Occasionally I run into strange items that I'm unfamiliar with but wildly clicking around isn't tolerated as three incorrect clicks in a row will take 30 seconds off the timer. Hints are not easy to come by. In order to acquire one you need to find three coins with a lion head design on the front. There are also jewels sprinkled throughout each puzzle. Collecting these will allow you to purchase "upgrades" such as additional clock time, more hints, or assistance from the local dragonfly who makes in appearance in many of the puzzles. The challenge of finding all of these different items within a limited period of time is heaven for the seek-and-find enthusiast. As you complete each hidden object puzzle, you acquire pieces of a jewel quest "board". Once a board is completed, you are challenged with a match-3 puzzle in which you challenged with solving match-3's in every square of boards of various shapes and sizes before the clock runs out. Two things make it hard for me to give this game five stars. First, there is no option for "relaxed" mode as you are stuck racing against the clock. Second, the hidden items are frequently discolored or not drawn to scale. To me this seems unfair and unrealistic but others may disagree and it does add to the overall difficulty of the puzzles if you're looking for a challenging game. Still a worthy four stars and highly recommended.

Great game, a good follow-up game. Addictive and fun...

I have played and enjoyed older Jewel Quest games but this version was sort of ho-hum. It is not very challenging but a good entertainment for a relaxing hour or so. Got through the game pretty quickly.

I enjoy playing this game, but it's not quite as difficult as I'd like. It's good if you want to unwind and can be played often. It might be a little difficult for kids under 10.
