This game sucks the life out of you. It's like you tell yourself, just one more game and you end up playing, 20. It's a fun game, but very addicting!
Yes you are going to get as much points as you possibly can, but have you ever noticed the faster you move, the faster your gems start to move for you? If you continue going at high speed you will start to see them move faster, but you will get a bonus in which you'll start to hear some crackling as if the board is on fire. The faster you go the more bonuses you will get.
Ever get offered the special cats eye gem?! If so, take it! It's awesome. I will normally accept the cats eye along with whatever extra boosts you like. I personally love the one that scrambles the board. The scrambler and the detonator are my two favorite, but when I get the cats eye, I will also do extended time!
One of the best moves is when you can have two colors, one different, followed by two more of the same color as the first. If you have this and you can get it so that you bring the right color to match making 5 in a row, you get the special gem that will shoot all the colors. There are two strategies. You can choose the color that you notice the most of, so that you get good points, but I do the opposite. I actually will choose the color that is more scarce so that when those are gone from the board there is an abundant of whatever color there was, with less getting between them. This will often lead to more matches just by removing he least of the colors. And if it didn't, very little moves will get them cleared off the board too.
You will also get the lightening type gem on the board when you get 4 of a kind. This will often result in clearing out the board all along that row. Most people don't realize if you click the detonator this will set off these electrical things.
I often would strategize before I would make a match. I wanted to make sure that other things will line up, etc. I no longer pause at all. As soon as I am able to start moving gems, I fling through as many as I can and I don't keep any strategies. I found strategies often slowed me down, but also messed me up more. This is a mindless game, don't' think about it, just do it, and do it quickly!
I love this game a little too much
OMG I was hooked a few years back. I found another one though! Thanks for sharing.
You aptly describe why I don't play these games. I find I have just wasted valuable time when I have even done a game for a little while.Well described to keep me away from the games.thank you.
