Jewel Quest is a fun game - the story line that provides that background is pretty lame. 98% of the game revolves around solving "Bejeweled" type puzzles of increasing difficulty. Pretty fun
MY only complaint is that at $30 Jewel Quest is one of the more expensive games for the DS. In fact for an additional $5 you can buy Zelda.... which is more of a true game. Jewel Quest is more along the lines of a game you would buy for a cell phone. It is fun and is great at killing time - but it isn't too in depth.
- Fun puzzles can help kill significant time on flights. - The DS stylus works very well for this game - Lots of variety in the puzzles - I like the use of the "Gold Coins" that allow you to complete one unmarked spot.
- A little expensive for the game's content - I think $20 is more appropriate but to each their own. - The "story" is more annoying than anything.
As a whole - not bad - definitely worth buy if you ever see the game discounted on Amazon or on a discount shelf at a local store!
