Inside Mac Games has posted a review of the latest jewel-matching quest from iWin, Jewel Quest III. Sporting new graphics and a new on-line competition mode, Jewel Quest III will take you on an adventure around the world. Here's an excerpt from the review:

Jewel Quest is a game about matching jewels together to clear space on a game-grid that comes in varying shapes and sizes. Many jewel games are played simply by matching and matching and matching until a certain point total or quota is reached. Jewel Quest changes this formula slightly by having every match made over a fresh square of the game board change that piece of the board to gold. The goal is to make matches that involve every single square on the board to turn the entire thing gold.

This makes the game both slightly more interesting (note the “slightly”) and more frustrating than your average matching game. Your tile-switching is more focused because you have an objective to achieve on the board other than simply for its own sake, but the inherent randomness of the appearance of new pieces to match can make for some maddening stalemates with the board. It’s possible that you simply will not get the piece you need to make the match in that hard-to-reach corner… and it is bitter to lose a level despite the fact that you are making steady matches the entire time.
