How to Play

Our walkthrough will guide you through the basic mechanics of how to play and how various features work. Jewel Match Twilight features two types of games: Match-3 and Mahjong, along with a bonus scene builder.


Match-3 is the primary game mode of Jewel Match Twilight. Each Level you play features a new set of Match-3 boards you must clear in order to progress.

  • Swap pieces to match rows of 3 or more. Click on a piece to select it, then click on the piece you would like to swap it with. Pieces can only be moved if there’s a match of 3 or more to be made. Once a match of three-in-a-row or more has been made, those pieces will be removed from the board. Pieces must be swapped with adjacent pieces and cannot be moved diagonally.

  • Each time you clear pieces from the board, they will be added to your total displayed on the right, beneath the large box icon. Pieces gathered can be used to purchase scene parts.
  • The goal of each level is to clear the tiles from the board. Tiles are white to cream in color, and can be cleared by making matches over them. The number of tiles remaining is displayed at the top of your screen.
  • Some levels feature multiple boards. When a board is completed, the border will turn green. You can click on arrow buttons to navigate between boards. Some boards may require you to unlock them within a level first.
  • Keys may sometimes be found on the boards. Keys open portals, or locks of the same color within a level. Sometimes they are needed to navigate between boards, and other times they are needed to clear portions of adjacent boards. Keys are color matched to their portals and can be collected by bringing them down to the bottom of the board.

  • The hammer can be found on the right side of your screen from Level 2 and onward. Each time you make a match, the meter behind the hammer will fill. Once the meter has been filled, you can use the hammer to clear any piece from the board. However, you cannot use the hammer on frozen pieces unless it has first been upgraded in the Shop.
  • Hammer refill items can be found on some levels. Bring them down to the bottom of the board to collect them and instantly refill your hammer.
  • Wooden boxes may sometimes block portions of a level. Match a match near a wooden box to cause it to explode, revealing the tile below. Keys or other magic items may be hidden within wooden boxes.

  • Coins will randomly appear on the board. Click on them to collect them. Coins can be used for purchasing upgrades in the Shop.
  • Sometimes you will encounter pieces locked within chains. Chains look like swirls of mud surrounding a piece. Destroy the chain by making a match using the piece affected by the chain. Some pieces may have multiple chains and require multiple matches before they can be cleared.

  • Frozen pieces may appear on some levels in the form of ice cubes. These can only be destroyed with a big hammer, a Fishbone, or a bomb spell. This piece cannot be moved otherwise. Frozen pieces do not have to be removed to finish levels.
  • Once a level has been completed, you may opt to move on to the next one, or explore the Crypt Room for bonus items first. Bonus items may be gold for the Shop, or various currencies that can be used for purchasing scene parts.
  • Magic Stars can be found in Crypts and are used to enable animations within your scenes. You are not required to collect them to complete a level.

Tips & Tricks

Here are a few extra tips and tricks to help you, should you find yourself in need of a hint or two:

  • Make a match of four pieces to create a rainbow piece. Rainbow pieces can be matched with any other piece. If you want to make a match with the pieces around a rainbow piece in its current location, simply swap it with one of the pieces you’d like to match it with.
  • Make a match of five pieces to create a Fishbone. Click on a Fishbone to destroy and entire column or row of pieces. Fishbones will have pointed arrow tips indicating where they will go. Some Fishbones may wiggle, so you will need to time when you click on them. Fishbones can travel diagonal.
  • Press and hold the right mouse button to drag and scroll the board around.
  • Earn extra gold by playing bonus games. You can earn additional gold by improving on your previous score. If you start with a lower score and gradually improve it, you can continue to earn gold from the same game.
