Sparkling gems await in the free-to-play puzzle game Gem Legends. Combine gems of the same color and break your friends’ high scores.
Gem Legends is a classic puzzle game in which you combine symbols and gems of the same color in order to reach the respective goals of each level. Instead of actually moving the tiles like in titles such as Candy Crush Saga, you simply click on longer connections of gems to remove them. While most match-3 games require at least a connection of three tiles of the same type, Gem Legends allows you to remove a link of two gems of the same color lying next to each other. The only restraint is that the symbols have to lie either horizontally or vertically next to each other. Gems that diagonally lie next to each other cannot be removed. You should focus on longer combinations of tiles. These will not only reward you with more points, but will also create power-ups that help you in the level.
In Gem Legends, you jump from one level to the next, trying to achieve each respective goal. You can only move on to the next level once you’ve completed the current stage. You only have a limited amount of moves in each level, so make sure that each one is wisely planned. In some stages, you have to reach a certain amount of points. In others, you have to destroy certain obstacles or free trapped chips. There’s also timed levels in Gem Legends, in which you have an unlimited amount of moves, but are challenged to succeed the level in a limited amount of time.
You can collect up to three stars per level. They are important for unlocking the next episode. If you happen to not have enough stars at the end of an area, you will have to revisit already accomplished levels and collect more stars.
Every time you fail a level in Gem Legends, you will lose a life. If you lose all of your lives, you have to wait until they replenish. There are other ways to get new tries however. With the premium currency, coins, you can purchase new lives. You can also get more moves for a level in order to not lose a life in the first place. Usually, you have to spend real money to purchase coins, but there’s also a way to get some for free. The better you perform in a level, the more coins you will get.
