Spin Your Way Around the World
Ready to go on a treasure hunt? Gem Spinner II: Water Quest is the sequel to the hit puzzle game, offering a twist on the traditional “match three” game play. You’re a globe-trotting archaeologist trying to restore gems taken from priceless artifacts. How do you do this? Puzzle boards, of course!
Each board contains colored gems encased in pieces of different shapes and sizes. Switch adjacent gems within a piece to line up three or more in a row. They’ll vanish and be replaced by more gems. Make as many gem matches as you can to reach a high score on each level.
Piece de Resistance
The twist to Gem Spinner II’s game play lies in those pieces. You can move the pieces around and rotate them to make for matches that aren’t otherwise possible. That new flexibility is what makes this game special.
But they’ll also add complexity to your strategy. Each time you make a gem match, that part of a piece goes dark. If the entire piece is dark, it vanishes completely. Clear away the smaller pieces too early, and you’ll be stuck for matches to get rid of the big ones. You’ll have to plan your matches carefully to get ahead.
Here Comes the Sun… Unfortunately
But that planning had better be quick, because you’re working under a time limit. Take too long, and nasty suns appear to block piece movement and mess up your carefully laid plans.
Fortunately, you can also earn sparkling gems that add ultra-flexible one-cell pieces to the board. You can also use Casual Mode, which turns off the time limit for a more relaxing experience.
There are puzzle boards waiting for you all around the world, from the jungles of Central America to the shores of the Caribbean. Complete all levels at one destination to unlock the next. Fifty levels across five locations, all accompanied by beautiful background graphics, will keep up interest for a long time to come.
Earn as many stars as you can on each level, and shoot for that elusive and difficult Perfect award. There are even challenging puzzle levels with set gems and goals that’ll really test your mettle!
So what are you waiting for? Those gems aren’t going to be matching themselves!
