Jewelish is a match-3 game. The objective is to line up the gems in rows and columns of three or more identical ones. This will make the gems pop and vanish from the board. Some tiles are shaded more darkly than others. To complete each level, the player must break these shaded tiles by popping the gems that are lying on top of them.
How to play Jewelish?
Players may swap two adjacent gems, but only if the swap creates a valid combination of three or more gems of the same kind. Larger combinations and chain reactions will earn the player a number of different bonus items.
