JewelToy Updated to 1.2.1
11:17 AM | Daniel Meissner | Comment on this story has updated their Mac OS X freeware game,JewelToy, to 1.2.1. JewelToy is a simple, but mildly addictive puzzle game. It involves aligning rows of same colored jewels, either vertically, or horizontally, to get points against the clock. The game play should be instantly familiar to any puzzle enthusiast.

Among the major changes is the inclusion of new graphics, the ability to add your own custom graphics, and a bug fix involving saving high scores. Here is a version history.

Version 1.2.1
  • Fixed bug where High scores were not being saved.
  • Added Eric Cherry's original alternate graphics to the collection of alternate graphic files.

    Version 1.2.0

  • Revised the scoring system, cascades now score significantly more (inspired by Mike Wessler).
  • Allow import of custom gem graphics in preferences.
  • Colored background added to show off new gems (inspired by Mike Wessler).
  • And, much requested, gems that would make a line hang about to taunt you for a second after time runs out.
  • Score bubbles every time a row is made.
  • Freeplay (untimed play) now lets you accumulate bonuses.
  • Gems above a cleared line shiver before falling, and fall with small random delays.
  • As mentioned above JewelToy is freeware, but the program's authors are accepting donations through PayPal on their web site. So if you really like the game, do your part and support the programers.
