BattleJewels is simple to pick up -- just match coloured mana gems together to
clear them -- and gives you a lot of meat to chew on as you play more. Delve into
the game.. theres lots to fiddle with! There are dozens of gem-swapping games out there, but lets face it - you can play them for hours on end, but why? Just to clear the level? Fine and good, they've all perfected the form. But in BattleJewels you can clear the level and smash an opponent too. Its as simple or as complex as you want .. play to clear, play to win, or play to level up and perfect your character. Fun for the casual and hardcore gamer both.
Availability and Pricing:
The game is available immediately for Palm OS, GP2X and Microsoft Windows. Pocket PC / Windows Mobile,
Sony PSP, Mac OSX, Linux and others to follow soon.
The game is priced at $13.99 USD and includes a built-in free trial so you can play a few matches before you decide if you like it or not. The GP2x version is completely free to wave the flag for my fellow homebrewers.
