Tile-matching puzzles are not exactly new genres in gaming. This kind of game can be traced back to the 80s when arcade games like Tetris and Puzznic became extremely popular. The concept was adopted by many generations and its popularity never fades. Modern games like Bejeweled and Candy Crush Saga prove that this classic formula remains to be effective. Today, you can spot a great number of tile-matching games on Google Play and the Apple App Store. Each comes with its own twist and interpretation. Block Puzzle Jewel by Hua Weiwei is another great example of this unique tile-matching game for mobile. It is a block puzzle game where your goal is to create and clear as many lines as can and earn the highest score possible.
The mechanics for Block Puzzle Jewel are generally simple and easily manageable. Although the game has a lot of resemblance to the classic Tetris, the gameplay is different. In Tetris, your goal is also to complete as many lines as possible. The tiles will descend on the screen and you have to strategically position them while preventing the tiles to pile up. In Block Puzzle Jewel, you will be prompted to a fixed 8×8 grid. There will be a separate panel below the board that will display jewels or tiles in a batch of three. Simply drag and drop the jewels on the board and strategically position them to form a straight line (vertically or horizontally aligned).
You earn points every time you completed a line but you can earn more by creating combos. You can do so by clearing multiple lines off the board in a single turn. The jewels are merely inspired by Tetris blocks (Tetrominos) so the process is very much the same. It features different puzzle pieces including a single tile, straight-line pieces, squares, T’s and L’s, skews, and even the large 3×3 piece. It might sound simple but the game is surprisingly tricky. Make sure to place the tiles strategically because if you run out of space, the game will come to a quick end and you have no other option but to start back from the very beginning.
One of the most impressive features of Block Puzzle Jewel is the graphics. Appearance-wise, this game is an absolute visual delight. It features beautiful jewel-inspired puzzle pieces that match perfectly with its jungle-inspired theme. Apart from its amazing graphics, the game is also accompanied by a well-fitting piece of music and audio effects. It creates wonderful sounds whenever you cleared a line or managed to create combos. The color of the tiles is also changing dynamically every time you make a match which makes the experience even more fascinating.
Simple Yet Addictive
Simple, fun, and surprisingly addictive. I guess this is how you can perfectly describe Block Puzzle Jewel. Despite the apparent simplicity of its gameplay, Block Puzzle Jewel is surprisingly challenging too. The small 8×8 grid contributes to this surprising challenge. You have to keep enough space for the next batch of tiles, otherwise, the game is over. The game may not feature multiplayer or PvP campaigns but you can embrace its leaderboard system. By connecting the game to your Google Play account, you’ll get access to its daily, weekly, and all-time top charts allowing you to compete with other players worldwide. The game also records your high score and gives you the ability to share your achievement on social media.
Block Puzzle Jewel may not be as great as the classic Tetris but it is absolutely worth playing. The game is generally simple and easy to play with. To top it all, it works well even without an Internet connection which allows you to play the game any time and anywhere you want. It is also an excellent time killer and something you can play without long-term engagements. The game also saves your progress so even if you close the app, you can go back from where exactly you left off. Appearance-wise, Block Puzzle Jewel comes with well-polished and visually stunning graphics along with well-fitting audio effects. Overall, this game is something you can confidently include on your device! Good luck!
