It's basically Bejeweled with RPG elements thrown in. Every colored set of gems is for a different element, and you have to spend these element points to cast spells to damage the enemy. Otherwise you can match 3 skulls and damage the enemy directly.

Winning a combat round gives you experience towards your next level which in turn grants you access to new spells, and gives you some skill points to distribute towards making certain elements more powerful, or to give you an overall boost in the game. You also have equipment that adds certain effects such as reducing the amount of damage you take, increasing the damage you can do, or even reducing a certain element from your enemy when you fulfill certain conditions.

In a way the game reminds me a lot of "Gyromancer" except you do the matches directly instead of doing the "bejeweled twist" style matches. The only thing not "bejeweled" about this game is that there are no special exploding gems created for doing complex matches. You do get a free turn if you match 4 in a row, and if you match 5 in a row you get a free turn + a wildcard piece added to the board.

There's also some gold pieces to match for more money, and "purple stars" for experience. In addition, certain stats increase the likelihood of these non-element matches giving you a free turn, so sometimes it's worth giving it a shot even if you'd rather be collecting the elemental pieces (red, green, blue, and yellow).

The music is decent, the graphics are kinda flat but it does the job, and the story is.... there. I mean, so far it hasn't added that much extra to the game but it's not cheezy either. If you're a fan of Bejeweled and puzzle games it's worth checking out. If you're dying for some real action or deep strategy, you should probably look elsewhere though.

Really fun game. It's got great RPG elements and really explores a lot of possible variations on the bejeweled gem match-up gameplay while still keeping the core elements essentially simple and enjoyable for the casual gamer. The game progresses well, the gameplay is familiar and has a lot of life to it. It doesn't feel short like other casual RPGs around. Definitely recommend if you are a fan of casual RPGs or want a Bejeweled game that is a little more involved.

Puzzle Quest takes tetris into a whole of new level of gem, and combat like enviroment. Basically you choose between a few classes. Then you are introduce into the game, and just follow the storyline. You can also capture enemy towers for extra income. Movement is linear, but nonetheless is 100% better than Puzzle Quest 2.

Why people play Candy Crush in a world where this classic exists is beyond me.

I love this game. It is perfect for me. A bit of adventure, which is the type of game I am not good at, mixed with a bit of puzzle game which I am good at :)

If you like Bejeweled this game is a must have for you.
The difference to a normal Bejeweled game:

- Cast spells
- Level system and choose where to put your skillpoints
- Get companions
- Earn money to get new gear or upgrade your citadel to get benefits in and out of combat
- Fight against monsters and tame/collect mounts
- 2 Player VS mode

So yeah its pretty fun and worth the price.
