Refreshing Match 3 Objectives!

You may expect this match 3 game to be like the majority of other games in the match 3 genre - to earn as many points as possible by matching 3 tiles together. But, that would be oversimplifying Jewel Match Twilight's gameplay.

In this game, your real goal in each stage is not simply to earn points by matching 3 tiles. You have to clear the designated golden tiles that are placed randomly around each match 3 board. To clear these tiles, you may find yourself having to clear other tiles in-between, to bridge the gap and get these golden tiles together.

This means that you cannot simply match 3 tiles randomly to proceed. You have to plan your moves and get to the goal of matching the golden tiles! We found this objective to be challenging, even thrillingly so.

You can only clear your level once all the designated golden tiles are gone. Once you have done this, the game will either tell you that you can move on, or...you may explore the crypt.

The crypt is a bonus stage that gives you more points! Its true purpose, however, is that it rewards you with stars. Stars are important in completing every level, and if you manage to amass a lot of it, you can use them to buy different animated decorations to be used in your very own customizable dark manor!

Spooky scenes that really sets the mood!

The theme of the game is very much in sync with the Halloween mood, with a strong focus on the supernatural and the magical arts. The visual style and aesthetics are based on witches, cauldrons, and black cats!

You will also get to build and fix creepy places, such as dilapidated and seemingly haunted castles, fix the huts of witches, and even build your own scary lair!

This is where the coins and stars and different currencies in the game comes in handy. With the valuables you gather throughout the game, you can buy and unlock more areas and decorations that can give life (or, you know, undead life) to your manor. We personally recommend adding plenty of bats, as they swarm around in the dead of the night and adds to the spooky feel!

Mini games galore!

In many ways, we feel that Jewel Match Twilight has outdone itself as compared to many other games in its genre. Why do we say that?

Because there are many bonus stages other than match 3 boards and stages! These bonus stages are unlocked when you hit a certain highscore. This is where the game diverts from the classic match 3 gameplay mechanics. Most of these bonus games are a variation of Mahjong, with its own redesigned spooky tiles.

There are also minigames that use match 3 mechanics but with a twist to shake things up. For example, one particular minigame will require you to reach a star that is out of view, and the only way to move the camera (to see this particular star) is to make matches in the direction you need to go.

This wasn't easy! And it was surprisingly challenging and fun, so there are many hidden gems in this game for you to explore, be it in your first, second, or millionth playthrough.
