QUALITY

JEWELLUST is a fun little gem-swapping game with an Egyptian theme that offers a Campaign mode with 30 levels plus a "see how long you can last" Survival mode. The basic gameplay is simple, but Jewellust offers a range of interesting power-ups that keep things lively, including one that freezes the entire board and lets players shift as many tiles as they like for a short time.
