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.

Energy

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.

Basic Combinations

Types

Combine 3 jewels of the same colour to clear them.

http://i.imgur.com/1bOzx.png

Combine 4 jewels of the same colour in a line to create a blasting jewel.

http://i.imgur.com/avTg4.png

Create a T or an L shape of the same colour to create a bomb.

http://i.imgur.com/AGSNM.png

Combine 5 or more jewels of the same colour in a line to create a diamond.

http://i.imgur.com/ydCzL.png

Effects

Blasting Jewels - combine to make a line of 3 or more jewels of the same colour. This will clear the row or column. The direction of the blasting jewel is determined by the direction of the jewel you moved to create it. Eg moving a jewel up or down will create a blasting jewel that goes up and down. Moving a jewel to the side will create a blasting jewel that goes to both sides.

Bombs - combine to make a line of 3 or more jewels of the same colour. This causes a small explosion that clears an area of approximately 3 x 3 jewels.

Diamonds - combine with any basic jewel to clear all jewels of that colour from the screen.

Advanced Combinations

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.

http://i.imgur.com/56OzX.png http://i.imgur.com/q01TX.png

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.

Boosts

Before you start the level you can buy boosts. The value of these boosts increases with the level. If you do not buy boosts before they level you can buy them for gold in the level.

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

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.

Edit

I was wrong. We don't get 1 gold per day. Not sure what I was thinking there.

Could be that they're trialling different things with different users. They certainly do that with other games.

As to help with any level, I'm happy to provide it. One thing to note is that I don't always have the energy to look at the level. If you can provide a description it'll trigger my memory so I can be more specific. General rule of advice is to use the advance combinations wherever possible.

Oh I remember that level now. It does take a bit of luck. This is my previous advice on it:



Where possible concentrate on matching gems near the bricks. Use special gems where possible. If possible blow up the iron blocks with bombs or bullets. If you can't try to move them to the side.

Wherever possible don't use a diamond on a normal gem if you can use it on a special. Used with bullets it turns all gems that colour into bullets. With bombs it creates a large explosion. With another bullet it destroys all gems on screen.

Above all go fast. Don't look for the best move. Just move.

That's supposed to be a diamond with a diamond clears all.

Two bombs together create a medium explosion.

Obstacles

Crates

Wooden boxes that block jewels from falling or being swapped. Destroy these by matching jewels next to them or using bombs or blasting jewels. The number of boards on the crate represents how many times you have to clear jewels next to it to destroy it.

Glass

Often needs to be destroyed to finish a level. It comes in two levels - clear and more opaque. Clear glass needs jewels matched etc only once to destroy it. More opaque needs jewels matched etc twice.

Dirt

Often needs to be dug through in order to finish a level. Dig through it by matching jewels next to it or using bombs and blasting jewels.

Walls

Walls block moving jewels but you can match jewels across them. They cannot be destroyed.

Black Jewels

Can be swapped but cannot be matched. These can be destroyed with bombs and blasting jewels.

Portals

Jewels that fall into green portals fall out of red portals.

Doom Jewels

Need to be destroyed before they explode. On levels based on the number of moves, each move reduces the count. When the count reaches 0 they explode and you lose the level.

Here's a hint on glass breaking levels:
Finish glass breaking level in few move doesn't means you get more score,because the bonus jewels often lay destory each other before they can do chains,so you can do some combo by yourself before you break the final glass block.

The goal for level 24 is "Combine a blaster and a power bomb." Since the game never told me how to make a power bomb, I assumed I could only get one by purchasing it as a boost. I did that, clicked to use it on a blaster and nothing special happened and I couldn't get the goal.
Then the goal for level 27 says, "Make 6 power bombs," so obviously they CAN be made but I can't find out how that's done ANYWHERE! SO frustrating!

Before you start some levels you can purchase some boost items with coins. You can't swap coins for gold. Sometime you'll get gold when getting a high score and three stars.

What is considered an illegal swap

If memory serves me correct its attempting to swap gems that won't result in a row of three or more. So if you accidentally try to swap two and they just go straight back to how they were that was an illegal swap.

Question #3: Right. Yes, jewels go through (in) the green portals and out the red ones. Matching/clearing jewels under or after the red portal (depends on the level) is what pulls the jewels through the portal.

Phaedrakiki
08-01-13, 10:19 AM
An illegal swap is trying to swap any jewels that "break the rules." For example, trying to make a match with a red jewel and two blue jewels. It won't work--you have to match at least 3 jewels of the same color. Except for special jewels...you can swap any 2 of any color. But if you tried to swap a blaster with a regular jewel, it could be illegal (has to be at least 3 of the same color jewels to work.) Or trying to swap 2 black jewels, for ex.--if you try, they just go back to where they started before you touched them. Anytime you try to make a swap and it doesn't work (because it doesn't fit the criteria, etc.) and the gems just go back to their starting positions, it's called an illegal swap.

There are several other illegal moves, like trying to swap across walls or portals, for example. But JM won't even let you attempt these moves, so it wouldn't be considered an illegal swap (no movement.) At least, I think that's how it works, lol! ;)

To pass the challenge, you need to make sure every jewel you attempt to swap is a true match that will follow through. Be careful, don't break the "jewel rules"...you'll pass & get your keys in no time! :) Good luck!

I agree how do you know how many points it takes to get a star. I've finished a level 4 times, but I've only received 1 star!

Which level is it? The scoring varies with each level. The characters/players at the bottom of the start screen can give you a very rough idea of the scores needed (minimize the "challenges" tab if it's in the way.) Scores in the 1st or 2nd place range usually mean 3 stars (beating the scores of "Paul" or "Wenqi".) I can check my own scores, and see if I can give you a better idea of the score you need. Although they make changes to the levels occasionally, and the needed amounts might be different from when I played the level you're on. (Luckily, once you have the stars, you keep 'em, lol!) If that's the case, someone who's played your level more recently might have a better idea. So, what level are you asking about?

Btw, there's a older thread about minimum 3-star scores (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?41625-Minimum-scores-for-3-stars). It's a little old, but you might find it helpful... ;) Also, keep in mind that you get a higher amount of points when you clear jewels while others are falling. This is easier to do on a timed level, since you're swiping like crazy anyway. Make matches towards the bottom of the screen, and you often get "bonus matches" as the jewels fall in. Clearing crates, doom jewels, and other obstacles usually get you more points, as well. So once you've passed a level (and "passing" isn't your goal so much as getting more stars,) focus on clearing as many obstacles as you can, and keep those jewels moving.

On glass levels, you get a better score if you don't finish too early. (Zetra mentions this (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?41251-Jewel-Mania-Basics&p=486243#post486243) earlier in this thread.) You're better off using up some of the leftover moves or time by making some random matches, extra special jewels, and combos. You would think finishing early, and having 30 moves or so leftover, would give you a big score...but it doesn't work that way. You get a special jewel (blaster or bomb) for each left over move or increment of time, but they all get detonated together. So it's just a big blast clearing the same jewels--not that many extra points after, say, 8 or 9. Better to clear all the glass but one or two, then make moves away from that last glass until you have under 10 moves left. Then finish the level. Your score will be higher this way... Btw, fire levels work the same way, although it's usually too risky to wait, since the fire can spread and get away from you!

Where you try to swap jewels that don't result in them being cleared. So if i had these jewels RRGBR and tried to swap the G and B it would be illegal. If I had these jewels GGBG and swapped the B with the last G it would be legal as I would have matched 3 Gs.

I have gone through the forums and understand the basics. But I cant seem to find anything that talks about matching them. And a lot of times they are invisible!

Aside from getting your energy back when you finish a level with two stars, is there any purpose to them? I currently have only 3 starred the first area, but don't remember noticing any type of bonus for doing so. Is it worth going back to earlier areas and clearing up missing stars?

Also, did anyone else notice their gold and/or coins disappearing randomly? I was at 60+ gold and 60,000+ coins but somehow I went down to 14 gold and 12,000 coins. I have never (intentionally) purchased any power up before or during a level, as I was trying to save it all for the later levels. I think there may be a glitch related to screen tapping location. I do have a slower device (Samsung Captivate i897), so sometimes the game lags out for me. I've noticed sometimes on timed levels the timer slows down to almost a complete stop and it takes a few seconds for the game to catch up to my taps. I think that this may be related to the issue of my gold and coins seeming to disappear (maybe while it's lagging, the game thinks I am trying to purchase power ups)

Anyways, thanks in advance for any help on either issue,

You should be able to match them like any other jewel--a red doom jewel with 2 or more reds, for example. If you cannot do this, perhaps there's a glitch or something going on with your game/device. And what did you mean about them being invisible? Make sure your game is updated, as well as your device software. Also, go to the Jewel Mania | Bugs & Issues section, and follow the instructions on "things to try first" when you have problems/issues. Things like force-closing the game, hard-restart the device, delete & reinstall game (your progress is saved on their servers, don't worry!), etc.

Good luck! :)

Yes! At a certain point in the game, you won't be able to continue to the next island unless you have an average of 2 stars per level. So, you'll need some 3-star levels to make up for the ones you only have 1 star on! There's no "bonus" for getting all the stars, but I enjoy going back to earlier levels once in a while to 3-star them (espec. when stuck on a difficult level--I'll take a time-out...) You also get a gold bar sometimes for 3 stars--but it's totally random, as far as I can tell... :confused:

Yes, many have noticed this! There are numerous threads and posts all over these forums about how easy it is to "accidentally" spend your gold. Here's a link (http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?48631-Please-stop-stealing-my-gold) to the main Jewel Mania "stolen gold" thread if you want to see what others have said :)

When doing the challenges with the goal of combine two blasters, or combine a magic star and power bomb, I thought that meant to swipe them with each other so the would combine and be used. I have done this and still don't beat the challenge?? What am i doing wrong?

Threads were not created for some of the lower islands. There are threads for some of those levels, though. What level are you looking for? Try searching on the Jewel Mania | Discussions main page, using the Search Forum drop down. Type the level # with quote marks to search, for example: "level 25". If you can't find any help, post a question for the level you need.

I'm not sure what's happening with your challenges. Swiping special jewels together is just as you said--swap one blaster's place with another, etc. Perhaps the challenge has to be done on a particular level-- did you follow the directions exactly? If you're doing everything correctly, perhaps you need to update your game, or delete & reinstall (your progress is saved--don't worry!) Good luck! :)

What is a magic diamond?

You get a magic diamond when you match 5 or more jewels of the same colour in a row. If you match the diamond with a jewel of another colour it will remove all the jewels of that colour from the board. If you match it with a blaster it will turn all of the jewels of that colour to boasters. Matching it with a bomb seems to give a bigger explosion.

Is the only way to get more gold, to buy it using the + symbol or can I use my coins to buy more? Also, I have almost 3k in coins...what can I use them for? I'm at level 74 (in that cloud bunch).
Thanks in advance! 😊
