Jewel Mania - Basics
I've started this thread to give some instructions on how to play the game.
I didn't take screenshots when I started the game. I'm going back and taking them as and when my energy allows me to so there will be some missing.
I'll be entering each section as a different post. So this might take a little while to write.
Each time you play it takes one energy. If you finish a level with 2 or 3 stars you get energy as a reward. Please note that currently if you finish a level with 3 stars and play it again you will not get energy as a reward.
When you run out of energy you can buy more with gold or you can wait for it to regenerate. It takes 60 minutes for 1 energy to regenerate.
For these combinations the jewels do not need to be of the same colour.
Combine a blasting jewel and a diamond. This will turn all jewels of that colour into blasting jewels and detonate them.
Combine a bomb and a diamond. This will create a larger explosion.
Combine a blasting jewel and a blasting jewel. This will detonate one of the blasting jewels.
Combine a diamond and a diamond. This will clear every jewel on the screen.
There are three types of levels (icon information is in brackets):
- Get x points (arrow trending up)
- Break all the glass (glass)
- Dig to a certain level (block)
There are two conditions for levels:
- Complete in x time (clock icon)
- Complete in x moves (no clock icon)
Finishing a Level
If you finish a level (by meeting the conditions) and you have time or moves remaining, the majority of the time the game will detonate all of your special jewels. It will then, for each remaining move (or set amounts of time), convert a jewel into a blasting jewel or a bomb. At the end it will explode all of these jewels. This helps to increase your points which determines your star rating.
Gold is used to buy additional energy, certain pre game boosts, in game boosts and extra time or moves if you haven't completed the level.
You get 1 gold per day. In addition to this you can purchase gold. To do this click on the gold icon and then select the amount you wish to buy.
I was wrong. We don't get 1 gold per day. Not sure what I was thinking there.

Reason: Corrected information
Is the one gold per day new as I haven't been getting any? Thanks Maguar another great thread from you xx
