I am thankful that Family Friendly Gaming was provided a download
code for Jewel Quest on the Wii U. This game clocks in under three
hundred gigs. In most ways Jewel Quest is a bare bones match three video
game. We do not build towns, or other things in this Wii U video game.
There is a timer on Jewel Quest giving us two minutes to beat each of
the seventy-two letters.
I could not find any options to play Jewel Quest without the timer. This short timer can be very frustrating since we have to match on each of the squares in the places tiles appear on a level. Jewel Quest gets harder after each and ever level. I wish Jewel Quest came with a casual mode for family members that want to take their time and think about their moves. Too often good moves were missed since this game encourages rushing around. I prefer match three games that encourage patience, and thoughtful contemplation.
Graphically Jewel Quest looks okay. There are some neat images in the background. Too bad Jewel Quest did not encourage me to take my time and enjoy the background graphics. I had to blitz to find as many matches as quickly as possible, or I had to replay the level. At the time this review was written Jewel Quest was selling for $4.99. I wish this game came in a physical copy. I miss looking at the art work on the disc and having a case to hold in my hand.
If you are a competitive and speedy match three gamer then you will get into Jewel Quest. The music in Jewel Quest on the Wii U is really good. I enjoyed hearing it while playing this matching game. I also like the different objects there are to match. Matching three gold coins is very useful in Jewel Quest. What do they do they do? They let you remove any background from a tile. Meaning you do not need to match on that exact tile.
Jewel Quest is a solid match three video game on the Wii U. I know there have been plenty of match three video games in the past. Some of them will even play on the Wii U. I hope to see more of these kinds of games in the future. I also hope any sequel to Jewel Quest will include a casual mode for those of us that like to take our time. There is no hurry in finding the right match.
