Ener-Jewels - App Spotlight
There are a few "bejeweled-like" games available over at the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace. One such is ImproviSoft's Ener-Jewels.
As with most "bejeweled-like" games, the object is to create a vertical or horizontal combination of three or more of the same jewels. Ener-Jewels has four game modes,
- Infinity: A never ending game mode.
- Power-up: As you create the combinations, you obtain power to move to the next stage. The power-up meter is at the bottom of the screen and when it fills, you move to the next level.
- Time Race: You race against the clock to score as much as you can. The more combos you create, the slower the countdown timer runs.
- Burst: You have sixty seconds to complete each level. Fail to do so and the game's over.
As you power up, the levels become more challenging. Should you get stuck, there's a hint button just below the power bar to help you out.
Ener-Jewels shares the same addictive quality that the original Bejeweled possesses. Graphics are crisp, sound effects nice, and with the multiple gaming modes there's plenty of game time available.
Ener-Jewels comes in two versions. You have Ener-Jewels TGIF, a free, ad-supported version and if you don't like the ads, there's a paid version without ads that runs $1.99.
