Summary

Simply put, Jewel Fever 2 is what you get when you copy Bejeweleds homework. They took the core gameplay but didn’t turn the page of the essay and missed out on all the things that made Bejeweled fun. In Jewel Fever 2 it’s a case of what’s missing and that’s a lot of things! First up you cannot earn special gems by doing big matches, no online leaderboards, and no voice narrative. I know they have to be different but this is not the way as it now makes the game less appealing outside of a quick trophy grab. But the music, ‘s generic and horrible, and within 30 seconds was turned off, sound effects barely survived the culling. Overall Jewel Fever 2, do it for the trophies!

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
