  1. Jewel Quest is about planning ahead rather than reacting; the pace is deliberate rather than manic. It's Chess next to Zoo Keeper's Operation.
  2. And yet, one of the best things about Jewel Quest is its own obsessing with its silly backstory.
  3. It's still a solid puzzle game. So if you've got the points, and you're bored of "Bejewelled," check out Jewel Quest.
  4. Jewel Quest sticks a little too close to the Bejeweled formula for its own good, but it does require you to master a different set of strategies.
  5. 66
    A solid, challenging puzzle experience, just extremely limited in terms of content. Also, if you don't like Bejeweled 2, don't bother with this one.
  6. A solid enough game that will suck away a frightening number of hours from your day. [Issue #16, p.78]
  7. Feels like an uphill climb against the odds. [Issue#6, p.120]
  8. Deceptively simple, jewel quest can be very challenging on the higher levels, but constantly addictive throughout. [Jun 2006, p.64]
