I really like the game, but in the new version, the Candy shop disappeared. It says I need blue prints. How do I do that or how can I just re-download the version? App Store isn’t helpful. Rev. CED

Very glitchy game lately
by Lukas-1972 on 2021/12/05 16:12
Enjoying this game but lately a lot of glitches. Out of nowhere, the Candy Shop event doesn’t work. When you select it, you are asked to search for the blue prints! Have already e-mailed support and still no reply. Will give this game more stars once this issue is resolved.

I love the game I started out playing Hidden City went to Jewels of Rome for extra Rubies. I can’t stop it’s very addictive all I can say is I love it.
Recent update is wonky.
by Oorgchall on 2021/12/03 22:52
I like this game enough to give it 5 stars, but the recent update isn’t working correctly, and the game won’t let me report the problem. I can’t get into the candy shop for the winter event. When I click on it, it tells me I need to find blueprints, but there are no blueprints for the event locations. It was working fine a couple days ago, but now I can only collect snowflakes for the winter event, I can’t actually play the event itself.
Enjoyable game

by karenia55 on 2021/11/12 01:26
Some areas way too hard, you get only like 13 turns to get rid of 40 + tiles with 3 or more hits to clear. Very expensive, for extra jewels. Story is cute, learning Latin a plus. Graphics are creepy and so is the background noise playing puzzles.

If you are into games that like matching or hide and go seek, join all the games here because they are fun, there are stories to follow and goals to meet. You don’t ever get bored with these games. Listen to me and you will be happy you did. You will never be bored ever again.

I began playing this game with interest! As time went on, I got caught up in spending money to continue! More and more is being developed to keep our interest. It also gets me to spend more money! I will not suggest the game to my contacts because it can be very expensive! You need to stop, Microsoft. I love the game! However, I cannot continue to play when you keep adding on to it!

by LizHimeII on 2020/08/30 16:15
This game is so much fun. The artwork is gorgeous, with an intriguing story that keeps you plain to learn more. I am currently on the wedding event and I cannot play this and fast enough to find out what happens next before time is up. I also love the use of education. The game has words of Latin for language and references to Roman history. I think future events could build on the potential educational aspect of the game. Perhaps a quiz event where characters educate the players and ask questions to see what they learned about history culture and language used in the game and event. It would be excellent for younger players and older players alike.
Started out good, but...
by Shop_Diva on 2020/03/09 04:11
This is just like so many of G5’s games. Survivors the Quest was the only exception and they seem to have stopped providing updates for that one, as well as several others. In Jewels of Rome once you progress to level 3 in a location it starts getting stupid hard and after that forget about it if you don’t want to spend big bucks for tools or waste your energy allotment and time trying to complete a quest. Plus many of the collections require so many combiners (up to 90+ for non-event collections and 113 for an event collection; those combiners are not giftable). You need a ton of friends who gift daily because it’s impossible to complete tasks in the locations that award the combiners. The graphics earned the 2 stars, which are generally great in G5 games but that is all the praise I can offer. The support staff are put in a truly terrible position because they really can’t do much, but it’s not their fault. They seem to be great people who work for a company that genuinely does not care about anything but money. I get it; it’s a business. I actually don’t mind spending for games I enjoy, but it should be reasonable...and enjoyable. It’s not. Peace out G5.
Cannot open app after updating...love to play though
by missfaem on 2020/06/01 17:36
First of all, let me tell you how addicted to this game I am. I love how you have so many options of buildings to play and goals to work toward because in other games, you get stuck on a level and you can’t progress at all until you pass the level..but not this game. Highly recommend but I do have one issue: It starts to open and then just goes away. I updated it this morning and started having issues after playing it for maybe 30 minutes. I’ve tried opening it during airplane mode, opening it from the App Store, turning iPad off and back on, and many other things to get it to work but it shows the blue G5 screen, goes to the next screen with all the G5 games advertised where you click on continue to game, then the next screen shows that the game is loading but stops about 3/4 of the way and closes...please help me fix this or tell me what to do because I play this game daily and love this game! Thanks
Ridiculously addictive
by starthistle68 on 2020/10/14 23:31
This game is great fun and gets progressively more difficult over time so that as your skills increase, your performance must remain consistent. The storyline is very engaging. There are so many different quests that at times the quest bar can be overwhelming. Nevertheless,there’s always something to do. What I love about this game compared to many others is that you don’t run out of energy immediately, and actually get to play. If I were going to change anything, it would be that it really isn’t possible to finish the levels in any kind of timely manner without power ups, and of course these must be purchased. However, I do find the purchase price is quite reasonable compared to other games. Occasionally, repeating a level over and over in order to get one specific random object is annoying. I have to say though, that it’s worth it, because I spend entirely too much time playing this game.
Worst cheating company in gaming ever
by wise panther on 2020/05/28 18:41
If the game wasn’t hard enough (which I enjoy the level of difficulty) the game is a money grab which I played around and got up to level 78 without submitting to the pay pay pay aspect of the game. But it is the CHEATING of the game that put me over the edge. Yes you have to play level after level to get any rewards at times. But when you win tools and try to use them the game puts them in the MOST useless positions and at times puts them in places you can’t even use them. How about rewarding good game play. NOPE no rewards for you just cheat cheat cheat. You set up this move to compliment that move and the game screws you it does not reward good play. It at times, even when you clear a column will have put or let a block fall that isn’t supposed to be there. You know because you just cleared the column. So I am so tired of the cheating that G5 games does that I will tell all my friends to NEVER play theses games. I am done with you G5 and hope you either stop the nonsense or you just fade into oblivion. Signed frustrated an fed up.
good match-3, but repetitive ads
by jeff204vk on 2020/11/07 05:35
The graphics are fine for a match-3 game, and unlike some other free games I’ve played, I was able to get through a fair number of levels without spending real money. There are some game mechanics beyond just matching. This game does have a few bad habits, though. The same ads kept coming up without me pressing any buttons to see them, and I really don’t need to see the same ad twenty times. Another pop up informed me that I had found an item which would allow me to visit the bank to buy stuff with real money. I didn’t realize that wasting dollars was such a prize. The game also pestered me for information that was none of its business, like my email address and my birthday. I guess you have to decide how long you’re willing to put up with these annoyances to play a free game. I’ve tried it for a while, and I’ll be moving on.
WAS my favorite matching game
by W7s5to on 2021/01/27 15:43
I love this game and have spent many hours playing it but will be going back to other match games I have downloaded. I’ve reached level 88 and now I’m getting pop ups every 2-3 days forcing me to purchase a reagents bundle or the game will start over from the beginning and I will loose all my progress. Excuse me......wrong move developer. I will spend my money where I want to spend it. This isn’t the only match game I’ve downloaded and am much higher in levels on those. I have NEVER been forced to make a purchase just to keep my progress with them. Bad move on your part because this game will no longer be my #1 go to. More like last place , once in a blue moon. Hence the 3 stars. You would have gotten a 5 star review if you hadn’t started forcing me to make purchases just to keep my progression.
A lot of fun but I need more help
by Quiltco on 2021/05/27 05:53
My biggest suggestion on this game is I need a lot more help than I can find. For instance, I still haven’t seen a way I can complete my profile if I don’t remember my original password on here. Also, when I got to one level at the boardarium, there was a very fast tutorial on how to use the archery gun. I didn’t pay enough attention and there is no place I can find that will explain it to me again. I have also not found it to be intuitive. So I haven’t been able to win this round within yet, either. So I might need a lot more help than the average player. I found one place on the Internet where a lot of players were asking questions in a forum but more questions were unanswered than answered, so IDK.
Needs more options to get items.
by ladymatey on 2021/04/05 20:28
I like this game, but I think it’s really hard to advance unless you buy the necessary tools and boosters. A better way to handle this would be to earn low level tools and boosters when you complete a board, such as games like “Secret Society of Hidden Secrets”, or during the special events when you get the bonus items for completing the special board. You could save the really valuable tools and boosters for when you complete a level. I think players would have more enjoyment of the game and you would create more loyal customers. Unfortunately, as it stands now, you can only achieve tools and boosters if you complete a level. That makes it really really difficult to complete boards and is very frustrating. Why can’t you find other ways to give out tools? It would make the game more fun for everyone.
How disappointing!
by YouWon'tLetMe on 2019/07/02 20:39
I started playing this game and was finally enjoying a match game. It asked me to review it quickly but I waited because other games would do the same and then get impossible hard. I had hoped that this game wouldn’t, but I was wrong. Now the game makes it almost impossible to win..constantly “hinting “ that I need to use the special helpers..that cost $$. I understand that but some people can’t afford to buy their way through games. Also, (and THIS is what’s really troublesome) if “I” can see when a game is (do I say RIGGED?) set up to keep you from winning then you’ve ruined what could have been fantastic! I was ready to give this game 5 stars because I was loving it. I don’t want to play anymore. I would have thought that the game makers would have wanted glowing reviews..guess not.
Game is going down hill fast (edit 1/28)
by Missie_in_maine on 2020/01/28 17:38
I agree with other reviewers. I’m only on level 3-5 and it takes forever to win if you don’t have the tools. Needing 210 assemblers per collection but only being able to win 6ish assemblers per location is lousy. I’m also experiencing constant glitches when I try to use the friends button. Need to include counts for energy restoration (217 current energy/ 250 max energy) and counts for 100% experience (64% but how many experience points do I need to level up) Update 11/26...many gifts are not credited to inventory. Again, you need so many assemblers and this further frustrates my enjoyment of game. I estimate I only get credited with 1/3 of the gifts. Many glitches in game that don’t seem to get fixed. Every time I need to add to this review the rating drops a star. I started with a 5 star review in October and now I’m down to a 2 star rating. Update 1/28....I completed all the available quests over two weeks ago and no new quests have appeared since. Game is meaningless without quests to purse! I agree with other reviewers who talk about the game being heavily manipulated (I refer to them as f-you levels). Customer service is a waste of time, all they do is ask for more info and never fixed a single issue. I’ve gone from this being my fave game to wondering why bother.
Jewels of Rome
by BarbiC88 on 2021/09/02 21:05
I really enjoy this game. Being a history buff, and having studied Latin for years, I enjoy all of the references to the times. This is not to say that this game is highly historically accurate, but you have definitely captured the “flavor” of the times. The game has many different kinds of challenges - some quite difficult, but fun to conquer. I like the fact that if you get stuck on one challenge, you can try another - although you eventually have to sole each one. Still, you do not got stuck in one challenge without being able to do anything else. This is one of my favorite games.
I’m addicted!
by jb dean on 2020/01/04 16:58
*** I've had to downgrade my stars because as of today (1/3/20) the game will not load on my iPhone w iOS 13.2.3. It worked fine yesterday & I was in same iOS. It gets to the loading screen (showing the woman who guides thru the games & a man in a blue cape pointing out to the city below them) & then quits back to my iPhone home page showing the app. PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP! I play this game several times a day & LOVE it!! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 I play this game EVERY DAY & several times a day. There are SO many different places you can “explore” (play different layouts) that it never gets morning! Plus as you progress, you gather statues that award you everything from in-game tools to help clear the boards to energy (and not just a few ... a lot of the times around 100pts), to collector pieces that give you more rewards when assembled. If you like connect 3 games, you should love this one!
What happened??
by wha'happen on 2020/01/12 00:40
This was my favorite game until a couple days ago. I had just started playing the new China Gate game section for a day or so when my screen went black. Thinking I needed to update something I cleared everything from my computer, looked for an update I hadn’t done yet (I didn’t have one) restarted my computer and the same thing. I haven’t been able to play now for a couple days. I have deleted about a dozen apps I wasn’t using, all my messages, most of my pictures and nearly 1000 old emails. Still doesn’t work with my favorite game. I am on an iPad with 32 gigs of memory.
Well thought through and fun game
by Hansen_G_A on 2020/10/22 05:34
Each little character’s blurbs are a bit too long/wordy, but so far that’s the only downside to the game that I’ve encountered. It is a super fun game that can stand on its own apart from copycat games like candy crush/tune blast/etc. The game has a clear theme and it follows the setting and the overall theme of the game to the smallest details. It seems like it is a very thoroughly developed. I do wish you didn’t have to always hold your phone horizontally to play the game though, it gets old and isn’t the most convenient orientation.
This game gets hard quickly
by Jeff Vader025 on 2021/07/29 23:41
Overall this game is proving to be a hard one. At first this game starts out like most match 3 games. The opening stages are simple and it introduces you to new puzzle elements over time. However, once you have upgraded a location to tier 3 or 4 the puzzles become very tricky, and some stages expect you to be able to clear a lot of things in a very limited number of moves. On top of that this is a very energy hungry game. It is not uncommon to see locations needing 25-40 energy with your XP level in the teens for just 1 try, and you only generate 1 energy every 3 minutes. Combine this with G5’s usual lack of free gems for shop items and you have a very slow paced game with a high level of difficulty.
I play this all the time!
by Velouria73 on 2021/05/02 00:20
I play Jewels of Rome pretty much every day. There are a lot of different match 3 games and usually there is a special event happening, plus a few other fun additions. Some games are pretty challenging and will probably require tools to help you win, but there are ways to earn the tools through challenges and events. I do sometimes have to spend money for things but I do spend a lot of time playing and there aren’t tons of ads popping up in the middle of things so it seems reasonable. The artwork is also really well done and it seems like G5 has put a lot of effort into creating characters, the village and a story. I recommend it!
Just another match 3
by 071jsm on 2020/06/26 20:06
This one is about par for the genre, maybe a slight cut above since it has a bit of a twist that allows you to keep playing longer than the '5 losses and out' model--not that it'll do you much good once you get to the point where you need to use it. It reaches the point of ludicrousness fairly soon, but if you're a fairly experienced player you can get a few days out of it once you reach that point. When you do, before opening your pocketbook or pulling your hair out (unless you want to throw 'em a buck if you enjoyed the game up to that point, like I did) simply uninstall the thing and move on to the next one--there's a million of of 'em, after all.
Jewels of Rome Gameplay
by Anthony S. Buscemi on 2019/11/27 11:40
I really do like how players can collect all sorts of valuable items and be able to upgrade different kinds of buildings and statues, while mostly swapping jewels and pieces of wood. It’s definitely fun. However, there have been some issues as well, such as trying to look for ways to get more gems, without purchasing more with real money within the game. I also don’t understand what to do with most of the items that just happen to appear in my inventory. Other than that, I’ll definitely continue playing Jewels of Rome, and I’m writing this review to receive three gems, since I don’t have any.
I need more help...
by make up your own name on 2020/05/21 17:22
I have collected & have so many collections to combine. You need to figure out a way to earn more building pieces. Some games have a limited time collection of rewards you can earn by collecting marbles when something is blown up. Playing this game & trying to beat the game is the only challenge. The game also needs more chances to win things like the hammer. The column & row sliders, as well as the color pots that blow up... your game is not generous at all... this game is now the last game I play each day... I like to play the game but I am having real difficulty in earning points to combine collectibles. I think a goal of 30 points of each building to combine the honey pots is really impossible. It is unreasonable to make the levels be so hard AND have the collectibles be so high. I am a cancer survivor & am playing this game over & over & over again so my memory heals. It’s really not much fun anymore when you seldom win the pride... thank you for your time in making this game.
Still new, probably 4*, but needs one bi* improvement
by Foryst55 on 2020/01/09 17:09
Other games of the type have a distinct change between normal blocks and special blocks. It hasn’t been obvious when a horizontal or vertical colored tile is created. Even after knowing that the tile simply changes slightly with directional marks, I sometimes miss the special tiles. The tutorial should also highlight how many different combinations can be made. For example, in one game four in a square makes a combo. Not here, so is it simply 3, 4 & 5. The T still works for making bombs, bu5 that is in essence two rows of three together. I did make a combo connecting a bomb to a horizontal clear tile, but can’t set of horizontal tiles without a combination.
Great but very expensive after level 29
by Myst66 on 2019/12/14 00:36
Very fun with a great sense of progressive challenge. At approximately level 25 it becomes more increasingly difficult to complete a puzzle unless you buy help so that you can move through puzzle. This is gotten incredibly frustrating and disappointing as it’s expensive to continue play. It also feels like the game manipulates the way pieces fall in order to force you to use them so that you will run out of moves. Overall as much as I enjoyed it I ended up feeling like it was a manipulation to get me to pay more and more money to play and while I feel that all developers deserve earning money for great games at some point there’s a diminishing return when it just cost too much to continue on.
Starts off Great
by Me_Mellie on 2019/11/10 04:39
I’ve been playing for at least a month, I’ve played other G5 games and enjoyed them so I thought this would be another one. I’m at level 23 and am calling it quits. The match three puzzles have gotten impossibly difficult, to the point that I have played the same puzzle over 7 or 8 times and still can’t win. (Sometimes I swear it looks like the game is manipulating so you can’t win.) The game encourages you to use helps, which of course cost money when you run out of the few the game gives you. If you don’t win the regular puzzles you don’t earn masks to play the seasonal game. My suggestion: if you are FTP, skip this game. If you are PTP give it a try.
Difficulty -
by mstrvler on 2021/10/15 12:48
Some of the challenges are way to intricate to solve. When you have to remove 50 squares of sand and 4 kitties in 20 moves; it sometimes becomes very frustrating to try and solve to move to next level. I know one has to be lucky enough to get the ‘help’ symbols, but then again the frustration sets in when only one or two moves are encountered. On some of these challenges, I just want to throw in the towel, but then I can’t move to the next level. And I refuse to spend my hard earned dollars to buy in!
Game has been updated to new objectives and special event
by Annoyed with the music on 2020/04/09 09:49
I have actually been playing this game every day for months, but now there are no new objectives other than multiple G5 and add a friend. Game is extremely boring now. If you want to accomplish anything you need to go to collections to find out what needs to be combined, over and over again. The special events with new game pieces were great, but the one with the sisters didn’t add anything new. Harder to win since you added the ability to buy bonuses.
Overall Plan?
by Universal Respect on 2019/07/16 12:24
It would be helpful to understand the plan or idea of what l’m meant to do in the village. I’m just plopped there with minute description & told to line up 3 of this or 4 of that. There’s no real cohesive gameplay here. And very importantly, the explanations & scrolls are much too tiny for small screens. Nothing takes the fun out of a game like having to stop and get a magnifying glass to read instructions. On the small displays then, I’d have the instructions cover the field so they can be read. And don’t “time out” the player by only displaying it briefly; wait until the player presses ok, done, or next before moving on to the next screen or ending it altogether.
Too difficult without spending 💰
by Annoyed-33 on 2019/07/06 23:32
Love this game! Awesome graphics, fun gameplay and great music. Once you get to about level 10 however, it is nigh on impossible to win without spending real money for boosts. There are not enough viable moves to create the bombs you need to finish the puzzles without spending money on boosts. Sad because I really enjoy this game. I’m hoping there will be some balancing done soon to fix this. Otherwise I will no longer play the game. Not fun when it’s so frustrating.
Pretty decent beginning
by Lady River on 2019/10/17 08:34
I just started playing this match-3 game and am on level 10. So far, so good. It looks as though it will cause the user to often need to pay to buy bonus items, but that just introduces more of a challenge: beat the level the first time and not require bonuses nor payment. It should be possible, though difficult, to play for free. I admit, I’m a FB of G5 games, though at times the UI could use further testing and debugging prior to release on the ApplebApp,Store. Such is the case here, which is why it earned four stars from me instead of five.
Don’t play. It’s too hard
by EzzyDT on 2020/11/30 01:02
I gave a review before. I stated the game is too hard to achieve goals without spending money. Developers response was that it was possible to achieve goals. I like to be fair so the next goals I tried to achieve I kept an open mind redouble my efforts and still I didn’t achieve my goals. The game makes you think that you are so close to achieving your goals but then you fail. I think developers shouldn’t charge a fee to play rather than making you think that you are so close to achieving your goals only to fail unless you spend the money. My recommendation continues to be don’t play. It’s too hard. And if developers respond we should be given the opportunity to reply in our review as part of our review.
Enjoying Myself So Far
by PKE2040 on 2019/06/12 18:25
This is the 1st game that I’ve played that’s only about gem matching. I admit it’s tough at times but I’m enjoying the challenge, with the options of having a variety of tools to help when I just feel stuck and don’t want to keep trying. My biggest complaint is having the experience progress bar portray my status as a percentage. I’ve wasted several high-value energy items because I couldn’t tell how close I was to reaching the next level, where my energy would fully recharge. Some players may be fine with a percentage but I want at least the option of seeing the progress as a point value, like other G5 games. My second biggest complaint is not being able to see what my max level value is. The only way I know is when I do a full recharge. And I can’t figure out when the Barrel tool would be used. A tutorial or FAQ on a website or social media would be nice.
Like it but...
by Lizd518 on 2020/10/07 00:11
It seems like there are parts of the game that don’t work right. For example, players earn coins...but there is now way to redeem them for anything. I have earned 6 step barrels in my inventory, but they don’t show up as one of the tools to be used during actual game play. And rubies can be redeemed for tools and other items, but it is extremely hard to earn them so the player must resort to buying them. Contrast this with G5’s Mahjong Journey, which makes a lot more sense.
It gradually becomes impossible
by forWhatIt'sWorth on 2020/08/23 02:29
This is a beautiful game. Excellent and artistic graphical. However as you progress through the game, the challenges become impossible to complete within the allotted number of moves. This forces you too endlessly repeat a challenge, or spend real money for additional tools that would allow you to complete the challenge. This game deserves five stars, except for the fact that it is designed to force you to pay up in order to progress.
Enjoyable
by Littlduck on 2019/08/21 21:15
I like this game a lot but there are often problems getting rubies and special offers that are paid for but never show up in game. Plus this is a VERY EXPENSIVE game to play. Without the boosters it is almost impossible to move on, thus the need to buy rubies. IF I could use the huge amount of gold coins for boosters or other needed items to complete collections, it would not be so bad. As it is I will soon be deleting it because I cannot afford to continue buying rubies🥵
Frustrating AF
by kalidame on 2020/02/02 18:43
This game starts out fun. You make progress, find new buildings, improve the settlement... in other words, you win some games and you lose some but you move forward. Then something starts creeping into the game. You start losing more games than you win, so to continue to progress you use the little boost pieces. Next, you’ve used all your boosts and you must buy more with jewels. Here is the frustrating part as you only earn one jewel per level and boosts costs 3-12 jewels each. But hey, you can buy more jewels at $2 per 15. I just played 21 games in a row (without any boosts because I refuse to spend anymore money on a “free” game) and didn’t win a single time. Like I said, FRUSTRATING AF. I won’t be playing this game anymore.
Need a Players guide !
by Freyjah on 2020/04/24 15:51
I am REALLY enjoying this game. I am hoping it is possible to continue to make progress without having to buy stuff ( ex. crystals and coins). SUGGESTION: Why not set up the game for a subscription base play for either the entire G5 games web site or individual games $3.00 a month. This way it will stop feeling like I am being nickeled and dined for things you should be earning in game play. Also it would be helpful to have a player’s guild button. So you can look up what things are and why I need them to progress the game. Thanks
Attempts to solve puzzles
by sawtap60 on 2020/03/29 03:43
I lose interest in games that let you win every screen after only one try, not challenging. However, I also lose interest if it takes 10 tries to win a screen. It shouldn’t take more than 2 to 4 tries to get a win. There are plenty of games out there and they shouldn’t be too hard or two easy. If it takes too many tries to win something, then I know you just want people to buy stuff.
Not too bad
by guido84756 on 2019/08/02 19:56
A little confusing at first with so many quests appearing simultaneously but you get the hang of it pretty quickly. Very nice graphics. Haven’t figured out how to turn off the music yet but will definitely do that when I can. After originally posting this review, that I rated as four stars due to the music issue, I received a very nice e-mail that explained how to turn off the music. That is what I call excellent customer service. 5 stars all the way!!!
Game of fun
by Nythauk on 2020/04/03 08:07
JoR is not as expected. I’ve been @ home for 3 wks. & now I found this gem & just want to be home to play! Graphics, gameplay & progression are all excellent & lvls. are fair but not easy to beat, making the game a great way to spend forced downtime w/o getting frustrated. I gave 5 stars for hitting the mark on all considered traits. In-game purchases aren’t jammed down your throat, game can be played w/o spending real money. In these hard times that is a Big Plus! Job well done devs, 😊 thanks!
Difficulty needs to be reconfigured
by StylistByNight on 2020/08/22 14:59
The game is visually very appealing, and the gameplay would be satisfying, except for the fact that a disproportionate number of levels are just ridiculously difficult. I am moderately skilled at match three games, but I keep running into levels that are literally unplayable without heavy use of extra tools. I’m totally cool with having to replay the occasional level a dozen times, but when it’s every three or four games, and you can only try ten times per day without paying to recharge energy, it makes it a very unpleasant experience.
Why
by icegn on 2020/07/02 15:09
Why do you make it so hard to get the rubies? Not all of us can afford to buy game perks when we have families and need food on our tables. Some of the games need more moves than you give us. I don’t like playing a round 50 times or using up all my bonuses just to get to the next round. I do really like the special games that you have like the current one. If your stuck on a round because it’s so hard to pass it takes all the fun out of the game and you want to quit playing all together. Please HELP!!!
Major Ripoff
by lorrainehornig on 2020/05/22 17:44
G5 entertainment is laughing all the way to the bank. As the player progresses, the game becomes impossible to play without spending major $$$. I am not opposed to spending a little money but come on, people, this is crazy. I recently noticed that I am being double billed when I buy a barrel of crystals...I disputed the charges and got an email from G5 asking me to address concerns to their customer support team. But when I went to the site, it was so convoluted and offered no avenue for true support. It’s too bad, because it is a fun game...until you realize G5 is playing us all as fools. They are greedy and should be ashamed, but I seriously don’t think shame has a place in their business plan.
I really enjoy this game but....
by LSBG on 2019/07/31 23:51
This game is interesting, has a lot of different challenges, and rewards. I would have given it 5 stars, except I feel like you almost HAVE to make purchase to continue to play the game. Otherwise you play it for a few minutes and then can’t play any longer, and have to wait for a few minutes to an hour to get enough energy to play again. I turned my husband on to this game and he also enjoys it, but also feels the same way.
Disappointed
by Mad and let down on 2019/10/28 10:41
This game is no good let’s see I have been playing this game for almost three months, and I will not be continuing to play it. The reason why , is because as soon as I get to the last maybe two items the game just ends I can have one piece of sand left to clear the board and the game just ends with the dreaded word skip , out of time, maybe better luck the next time, and it’s the same answer... No you lose. As for tools you get none to use or to even have a chance at getting to the next quest, the tools are only given when you first download the game and that’s it for tools and within the first one to three levels the tools are already gone.
Fun time waster!
by Kib1960 on 2020/09/03 03:50
I enjoy playing the G5 games. The attention to the soundtrack is impressive. You can play for hours and not have to put out any additional money if you don’t want to, although it does make it hard to complete the bonus games/campaigns. The one issue that I have is that in the “Collections” area, there is no way to sort the completed collections to the bottom of the list, or filter them out. If I have completed a collection, I don’t need to keep completing it over & over... or have it show up in the “almost ready” or “4 of 5” group. It would be nice to have the option to not show completed collections. I have at least 5 different G5 games that I am playing at the same time, just so that I always have something to play. Bona Fide !
Love it.......so far
by Any station, anywhere anytime! on 2019/06/05 11:39
They ask for reviews too quickly! So far it’s great fun and glitch free! If you like Cradles of Rome, you’ll like this one! Colorful and easy to understand the point of the game. The only suggestion I have so far is to add the percentage needed to level up in a site. If you get a quest/task to increase your rank in a specific site, it would help to know how close you are. Otherwise don’t change anything!! Another great G5 game! Update on this is review is the game get VERY hard very quick. Great game but not for those unwilling to pay real cash to move forward.
Reasonably Hard, but not impossible
by Obsessive Tubbs on 2020/09/16 12:06
It has the qualities of a good puzzle game. It slowly gets more difficult, but so far hasn’t reached impossible. I keep returning to play it. Update: It’s been many months since I wrote the review above. I am still playing. The game is kept fresh with frequent updates that present a new side story adventure to play, and new game mechanics, in addition to the main game. My thanks to the publisher for this fun addiction. 👍🏼
Disappearing rubies and energy
by Mobrienn on 2021/10/07 18:49
I enjoy this game and some of the updates have really improved the regular games. However, one update took away 500 of my rubies. And now, this recent update, took away around 27,000 energy points! Why? Also, get rid of the monsters if they aren’t going to serve anymore purpose than just floating around now. I would give this game a higher rating if my points and rubies wouldn’t just disappear! I DID contact you. You never did anything about it. You just say you’re sorry. That is not helpful. Why make my gems and energy disappear to begin with?
Can’t win after so many levels
by Gavensnoni on 2020/12/22 03:57
As many others have stated, the game eventually makes it impossible to win levels without bonus and helpers, and it always seem you are ONLY one move away so you will use up bonuses and have to buy more. You quickly go thru your points playing same level 5-10 times before you amazingly will eventually win. But after only 10 minutes before that happens, it’s time to look for another game. A shame...it could have been fantastic otherwise.
Great Game but Often Glitches
by monoply on 2021/04/28 04:24
I love this game so much! I play it every day. Unfortunately, there are often times where I cannot play because it crashes before I can load it. This usually happens after an update and gets fixed in a few days. Also, usually the updates have a lot of new additions, so bugs are understandable. However, I think that consistency is more important than new additions, so I hope that preventing crashes can be a priority.

Enjoying this game but lately a lot of glitches. Out of nowhere, the Candy Shop event doesn’t work. When you select it, you are asked to search for the blue prints! Have already e-mailed support and still no reply. Will give this game more stars once this issue is resolved.

I love the game I started out playing Hidden City went to Jewels of Rome for extra Rubies. I can’t stop it’s very addictive all I can say is I love it.
Recent update is wonky.
by Oorgchall on 2021/12/03 22:52
I like this game enough to give it 5 stars, but the recent update isn’t working correctly, and the game won’t let me report the problem. I can’t get into the candy shop for the winter event. When I click on it, it tells me I need to find blueprints, but there are no blueprints for the event locations. It was working fine a couple days ago, but now I can only collect snowflakes for the winter event, I can’t actually play the event itself.
Enjoyable game

I would like to find a place to learn about the game so that I don’t discover everything by accident. Four instance how do I use a talisman, what are those little lights that once you touch an image they dart away. A full explanation of the game would be awesome. Thank you

by karenia55 on 2021/11/12 01:26
Some areas way too hard, you get only like 13 turns to get rid of 40 + tiles with 3 or more hits to clear. Very expensive, for extra jewels. Story is cute, learning Latin a plus. Graphics are creepy and so is the background noise playing puzzles.

If you are into games that like matching or hide and go seek, join all the games here because they are fun, there are stories to follow and goals to meet. You don’t ever get bored with these games. Listen to me and you will be happy you did. You will never be bored ever again.

I began playing this game with interest! As time went on, I got caught up in spending money to continue! More and more is being developed to keep our interest. It also gets me to spend more money!

by LizHimeII on 2020/08/30 16:15
This game is so much fun. The artwork is gorgeous, with an intriguing story that keeps you plain to learn more. I am currently on the wedding event and I cannot play this and fast enough to find out what happens next before time is up. I also love the use of education. The game has words of Latin for language and references to Roman history. I think future events could build on the potential educational aspect of the game. Perhaps a quiz event where characters educate the players and ask questions to see what they learned about history culture and language used in the game and event. It would be excellent for younger players and older players alike.
Started out good, but...
by Shop_Diva on 2020/03/09 04:11
This is just like so many of G5’s games. Survivors the Quest was the only exception and they seem to have stopped providing updates for that one, as well as several others. In Jewels of Rome once you progress to level 3 in a location it starts getting stupid hard and after that forget about it if you don’t want to spend big bucks for tools or waste your energy allotment and time trying to complete a quest. Plus many of the collections require so many combiners (up to 90+ for non-event collections and 113 for an event collection; those combiners are not giftable). You need a ton of friends who gift daily because it’s impossible to complete tasks in the locations that award the combiners. The graphics earned the 2 stars, which are generally great in G5 games but that is all the praise I can offer. The support staff are put in a truly terrible position because they really can’t do much, but it’s not their fault. They seem to be great people who work for a company that genuinely does not care about anything but money. I get it; it’s a business. I actually don’t mind spending for games I enjoy, but it should be reasonable...and enjoyable. It’s not. Peace out G5.
Cannot open app after updating...love to play though
by missfaem on 2020/06/01 17:36
First of all, let me tell you how addicted to this game I am. I love how you have so many options of buildings to play and goals to work toward because in other games, you get stuck on a level and you can’t progress at all until you pass the level..but not this game. Highly recommend but I do have one issue: It starts to open and then just goes away. I updated it this morning and started having issues after playing it for maybe 30 minutes. I’ve tried opening it during airplane mode, opening it from the App Store, turning iPad off and back on, and many other things to get it to work but it shows the blue G5 screen, goes to the next screen with all the G5 games advertised where you click on continue to game, then the next screen shows that the game is loading but stops about 3/4 of the way and closes...please help me fix this or tell me what to do because I play this game daily and love this game! Thanks
Ridiculously addictive
by starthistle68 on 2020/10/14 23:31
This game is great fun and gets progressively more difficult over time so that as your skills increase, your performance must remain consistent. The storyline is very engaging. There are so many different quests that at times the quest bar can be overwhelming. Nevertheless,there’s always something to do. What I love about this game compared to many others is that you don’t run out of energy immediately, and actually get to play. If I were going to change anything, it would be that it really isn’t possible to finish the levels in any kind of timely manner without power ups, and of course these must be purchased. However, I do find the purchase price is quite reasonable compared to other games. Occasionally, repeating a level over and over in order to get one specific random object is annoying. I have to say though, that it’s worth it, because I spend entirely too much time playing this game.
Worst cheating company in gaming ever
by wise panther on 2020/05/28 18:41
If the game wasn’t hard enough (which I enjoy the level of difficulty) the game is a money grab which I played around and got up to level 78 without submitting to the pay pay pay aspect of the game. But it is the CHEATING of the game that put me over the edge. Yes you have to play level after level to get any rewards at times. But when you win tools and try to use them the game puts them in the MOST useless positions and at times puts them in places you can’t even use them. How about rewarding good game play. NOPE no rewards for you just cheat cheat cheat. You set up this move to compliment that move and the game screws you it does not reward good play. It at times, even when you clear a column will have put or let a block fall that isn’t supposed to be there. You know because you just cleared the column. So I am so tired of the cheating that G5 games does that I will tell all my friends to NEVER play theses games. I am done with you G5 and hope you either stop the nonsense or you just fade into oblivion. Signed frustrated an fed up.
good match-3, but repetitive ads
by jeff204vk on 2020/11/07 05:35
The graphics are fine for a match-3 game, and unlike some other free games I’ve played, I was able to get through a fair number of levels without spending real money. There are some game mechanics beyond just matching. This game does have a few bad habits, though. The same ads kept coming up without me pressing any buttons to see them, and I really don’t need to see the same ad twenty times. Another pop up informed me that I had found an item which would allow me to visit the bank to buy stuff with real money. I didn’t realize that wasting dollars was such a prize. The game also pestered me for information that was none of its business, like my email address and my birthday. I guess you have to decide how long you’re willing to put up with these annoyances to play a free game. I’ve tried it for a while, and I’ll be moving on.
WAS my favorite matching game
by W7s5to on 2021/01/27 15:43
I love this game and have spent many hours playing it but will be going back to other match games I have downloaded. I’ve reached level 88 and now I’m getting pop ups every 2-3 days forcing me to purchase a reagents bundle or the game will start over from the beginning and I will loose all my progress. Excuse me......wrong move developer. I will spend my money where I want to spend it. This isn’t the only match game I’ve downloaded and am much higher in levels on those. I have NEVER been forced to make a purchase just to keep my progress with them. Bad move on your part because this game will no longer be my #1 go to. More like last place , once in a blue moon. Hence the 3 stars. You would have gotten a 5 star review if you hadn’t started forcing me to make purchases just to keep my progression.
A lot of fun but I need more help
by Quiltco on 2021/05/27 05:53
My biggest suggestion on this game is I need a lot more help than I can find. For instance, I still haven’t seen a way I can complete my profile if I don’t remember my original password on here. Also, when I got to one level at the boardarium, there was a very fast tutorial on how to use the archery gun. I didn’t pay enough attention and there is no place I can find that will explain it to me again. I have also not found it to be intuitive. So I haven’t been able to win this round within yet, either. So I might need a lot more help than the average player. I found one place on the Internet where a lot of players were asking questions in a forum but more questions were unanswered than answered, so IDK.
Needs more options to get items.
by ladymatey on 2021/04/05 20:28
I like this game, but I think it’s really hard to advance unless you buy the necessary tools and boosters. A better way to handle this would be to earn low level tools and boosters when you complete a board, such as games like “Secret Society of Hidden Secrets”, or during the special events when you get the bonus items for completing the special board. You could save the really valuable tools and boosters for when you complete a level. I think players would have more enjoyment of the game and you would create more loyal customers. Unfortunately, as it stands now, you can only achieve tools and boosters if you complete a level. That makes it really really difficult to complete boards and is very frustrating. Why can’t you find other ways to give out tools? It would make the game more fun for everyone.
How disappointing!
by YouWon'tLetMe on 2019/07/02 20:39
I started playing this game and was finally enjoying a match game. It asked me to review it quickly but I waited because other games would do the same and then get impossible hard. I had hoped that this game wouldn’t, but I was wrong. Now the game makes it almost impossible to win..constantly “hinting “ that I need to use the special helpers..that cost $$. I understand that but some people can’t afford to buy their way through games. Also, (and THIS is what’s really troublesome) if “I” can see when a game is (do I say RIGGED?) set up to keep you from winning then you’ve ruined what could have been fantastic! I was ready to give this game 5 stars because I was loving it. I don’t want to play anymore. I would have thought that the game makers would have wanted glowing reviews..guess not.
Game is going down hill fast (edit 1/28)
by Missie_in_maine on 2020/01/28 17:38
I agree with other reviewers. I’m only on level 3-5 and it takes forever to win if you don’t have the tools. Needing 210 assemblers per collection but only being able to win 6ish assemblers per location is lousy. I’m also experiencing constant glitches when I try to use the friends button. Need to include counts for energy restoration (217 current energy/ 250 max energy) and counts for 100% experience (64% but how many experience points do I need to level up) Update 11/26...many gifts are not credited to inventory. Again, you need so many assemblers and this further frustrates my enjoyment of game. I estimate I only get credited with 1/3 of the gifts. Many glitches in game that don’t seem to get fixed. Every time I need to add to this review the rating drops a star. I started with a 5 star review in October and now I’m down to a 2 star rating. Update 1/28....I completed all the available quests over two weeks ago and no new quests have appeared since. Game is meaningless without quests to purse! I agree with other reviewers who talk about the game being heavily manipulated (I refer to them as f-you levels). Customer service is a waste of time, all they do is ask for more info and never fixed a single issue. I’ve gone from this being my fave game to wondering why bother.
Jewels of Rome
by BarbiC88 on 2021/09/02 21:05
I really enjoy this game. Being a history buff, and having studied Latin for years, I enjoy all of the references to the times. This is not to say that this game is highly historically accurate, but you have definitely captured the “flavor” of the times. The game has many different kinds of challenges - some quite difficult, but fun to conquer. I like the fact that if you get stuck on one challenge, you can try another - although you eventually have to sole each one. Still, you do not got stuck in one challenge without being able to do anything else. This is one of my favorite games.
I’m addicted!
by jb dean on 2020/01/04 16:58
*** I've had to downgrade my stars because as of today (1/3/20) the game will not load on my iPhone w iOS 13.2.3. It worked fine yesterday & I was in same iOS. It gets to the loading screen (showing the woman who guides thru the games & a man in a blue cape pointing out to the city below them) & then quits back to my iPhone home page showing the app. PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP! I play this game several times a day & LOVE it!! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 I play this game EVERY DAY & several times a day. There are SO many different places you can “explore” (play different layouts) that it never gets morning! Plus as you progress, you gather statues that award you everything from in-game tools to help clear the boards to energy (and not just a few ... a lot of the times around 100pts), to collector pieces that give you more rewards when assembled. If you like connect 3 games, you should love this one!
What happened??
by wha'happen on 2020/01/12 00:40
This was my favorite game until a couple days ago. I had just started playing the new China Gate game section for a day or so when my screen went black. Thinking I needed to update something I cleared everything from my computer, looked for an update I hadn’t done yet (I didn’t have one) restarted my computer and the same thing. I haven’t been able to play now for a couple days. I have deleted about a dozen apps I wasn’t using, all my messages, most of my pictures and nearly 1000 old emails. Still doesn’t work with my favorite game. I am on an iPad with 32 gigs of memory.
Well thought through and fun game
by Hansen_G_A on 2020/10/22 05:34
Each little character’s blurbs are a bit too long/wordy, but so far that’s the only downside to the game that I’ve encountered. It is a super fun game that can stand on its own apart from copycat games like candy crush/tune blast/etc. The game has a clear theme and it follows the setting and the overall theme of the game to the smallest details. It seems like it is a very thoroughly developed. I do wish you didn’t have to always hold your phone horizontally to play the game though, it gets old and isn’t the most convenient orientation.
This game gets hard quickly
by Jeff Vader025 on 2021/07/29 23:41
Overall this game is proving to be a hard one. At first this game starts out like most match 3 games. The opening stages are simple and it introduces you to new puzzle elements over time. However, once you have upgraded a location to tier 3 or 4 the puzzles become very tricky, and some stages expect you to be able to clear a lot of things in a very limited number of moves. On top of that this is a very energy hungry game. It is not uncommon to see locations needing 25-40 energy with your XP level in the teens for just 1 try, and you only generate 1 energy every 3 minutes. Combine this with G5’s usual lack of free gems for shop items and you have a very slow paced game with a high level of difficulty.
I play this all the time!
by Velouria73 on 2021/05/02 00:20
I play Jewels of Rome pretty much every day. There are a lot of different match 3 games and usually there is a special event happening, plus a few other fun additions. Some games are pretty challenging and will probably require tools to help you win, but there are ways to earn the tools through challenges and events. I do sometimes have to spend money for things but I do spend a lot of time playing and there aren’t tons of ads popping up in the middle of things so it seems reasonable. The artwork is also really well done and it seems like G5 has put a lot of effort into creating characters, the village and a story. I recommend it!
Just another match 3
by 071jsm on 2020/06/26 20:06
This one is about par for the genre, maybe a slight cut above since it has a bit of a twist that allows you to keep playing longer than the '5 losses and out' model--not that it'll do you much good once you get to the point where you need to use it. It reaches the point of ludicrousness fairly soon, but if you're a fairly experienced player you can get a few days out of it once you reach that point. When you do, before opening your pocketbook or pulling your hair out (unless you want to throw 'em a buck if you enjoyed the game up to that point, like I did) simply uninstall the thing and move on to the next one--there's a million of of 'em, after all.
Jewels of Rome Gameplay
by Anthony S. Buscemi on 2019/11/27 11:40
I really do like how players can collect all sorts of valuable items and be able to upgrade different kinds of buildings and statues, while mostly swapping jewels and pieces of wood. It’s definitely fun. However, there have been some issues as well, such as trying to look for ways to get more gems, without purchasing more with real money within the game. I also don’t understand what to do with most of the items that just happen to appear in my inventory. Other than that, I’ll definitely continue playing Jewels of Rome, and I’m writing this review to receive three gems, since I don’t have any.
I need more help...
by make up your own name on 2020/05/21 17:22
I have collected & have so many collections to combine. You need to figure out a way to earn more building pieces. Some games have a limited time collection of rewards you can earn by collecting marbles when something is blown up. Playing this game & trying to beat the game is the only challenge. The game also needs more chances to win things like the hammer. The column & row sliders, as well as the color pots that blow up... your game is not generous at all... this game is now the last game I play each day... I like to play the game but I am having real difficulty in earning points to combine collectibles. I think a goal of 30 points of each building to combine the honey pots is really impossible. It is unreasonable to make the levels be so hard AND have the collectibles be so high. I am a cancer survivor & am playing this game over & over & over again so my memory heals. It’s really not much fun anymore when you seldom win the pride... thank you for your time in making this game.
Still new, probably 4*, but needs one bi* improvement
by Foryst55 on 2020/01/09 17:09
Other games of the type have a distinct change between normal blocks and special blocks. It hasn’t been obvious when a horizontal or vertical colored tile is created. Even after knowing that the tile simply changes slightly with directional marks, I sometimes miss the special tiles. The tutorial should also highlight how many different combinations can be made. For example, in one game four in a square makes a combo. Not here, so is it simply 3, 4 & 5. The T still works for making bombs, bu5 that is in essence two rows of three together. I did make a combo connecting a bomb to a horizontal clear tile, but can’t set of horizontal tiles without a combination.
Great but very expensive after level 29
by Myst66 on 2019/12/14 00:36
Very fun with a great sense of progressive challenge. At approximately level 25 it becomes more increasingly difficult to complete a puzzle unless you buy help so that you can move through puzzle. This is gotten incredibly frustrating and disappointing as it’s expensive to continue play. It also feels like the game manipulates the way pieces fall in order to force you to use them so that you will run out of moves. Overall as much as I enjoyed it I ended up feeling like it was a manipulation to get me to pay more and more money to play and while I feel that all developers deserve earning money for great games at some point there’s a diminishing return when it just cost too much to continue on.
Starts off Great
by Me_Mellie on 2019/11/10 04:39
I’ve been playing for at least a month, I’ve played other G5 games and enjoyed them so I thought this would be another one. I’m at level 23 and am calling it quits. The match three puzzles have gotten impossibly difficult, to the point that I have played the same puzzle over 7 or 8 times and still can’t win. (Sometimes I swear it looks like the game is manipulating so you can’t win.) The game encourages you to use helps, which of course cost money when you run out of the few the game gives you. If you don’t win the regular puzzles you don’t earn masks to play the seasonal game. My suggestion: if you are FTP, skip this game. If you are PTP give it a try.
Difficulty -
by mstrvler on 2021/10/15 12:48
Some of the challenges are way to intricate to solve. When you have to remove 50 squares of sand and 4 kitties in 20 moves; it sometimes becomes very frustrating to try and solve to move to next level. I know one has to be lucky enough to get the ‘help’ symbols, but then again the frustration sets in when only one or two moves are encountered. On some of these challenges, I just want to throw in the towel, but then I can’t move to the next level. And I refuse to spend my hard earned dollars to buy in!
Game has been updated to new objectives and special event
by Annoyed with the music on 2020/04/09 09:49
I have actually been playing this game every day for months, but now there are no new objectives other than multiple G5 and add a friend. Game is extremely boring now. If you want to accomplish anything you need to go to collections to find out what needs to be combined, over and over again. The special events with new game pieces were great, but the one with the sisters didn’t add anything new. Harder to win since you added the ability to buy bonuses.
Overall Plan?
by Universal Respect on 2019/07/16 12:24
It would be helpful to understand the plan or idea of what l’m meant to do in the village. I’m just plopped there with minute description & told to line up 3 of this or 4 of that. There’s no real cohesive gameplay here. And very importantly, the explanations & scrolls are much too tiny for small screens. Nothing takes the fun out of a game like having to stop and get a magnifying glass to read instructions. On the small displays then, I’d have the instructions cover the field so they can be read. And don’t “time out” the player by only displaying it briefly; wait until the player presses ok, done, or next before moving on to the next screen or ending it altogether.
Too difficult without spending 💰
by Annoyed-33 on 2019/07/06 23:32
Love this game! Awesome graphics, fun gameplay and great music. Once you get to about level 10 however, it is nigh on impossible to win without spending real money for boosts. There are not enough viable moves to create the bombs you need to finish the puzzles without spending money on boosts. Sad because I really enjoy this game. I’m hoping there will be some balancing done soon to fix this. Otherwise I will no longer play the game. Not fun when it’s so frustrating.
Pretty decent beginning
by Lady River on 2019/10/17 08:34
I just started playing this match-3 game and am on level 10. So far, so good. It looks as though it will cause the user to often need to pay to buy bonus items, but that just introduces more of a challenge: beat the level the first time and not require bonuses nor payment. It should be possible, though difficult, to play for free. I admit, I’m a FB of G5 games, though at times the UI could use further testing and debugging prior to release on the ApplebApp,Store. Such is the case here, which is why it earned four stars from me instead of five.
Don’t play. It’s too hard
by EzzyDT on 2020/11/30 01:02
I gave a review before. I stated the game is too hard to achieve goals without spending money. Developers response was that it was possible to achieve goals. I like to be fair so the next goals I tried to achieve I kept an open mind redouble my efforts and still I didn’t achieve my goals. The game makes you think that you are so close to achieving your goals but then you fail. I think developers shouldn’t charge a fee to play rather than making you think that you are so close to achieving your goals only to fail unless you spend the money. My recommendation continues to be don’t play. It’s too hard. And if developers respond we should be given the opportunity to reply in our review as part of our review.
Enjoying Myself So Far
by PKE2040 on 2019/06/12 18:25
This is the 1st game that I’ve played that’s only about gem matching. I admit it’s tough at times but I’m enjoying the challenge, with the options of having a variety of tools to help when I just feel stuck and don’t want to keep trying. My biggest complaint is having the experience progress bar portray my status as a percentage. I’ve wasted several high-value energy items because I couldn’t tell how close I was to reaching the next level, where my energy would fully recharge. Some players may be fine with a percentage but I want at least the option of seeing the progress as a point value, like other G5 games. My second biggest complaint is not being able to see what my max level value is. The only way I know is when I do a full recharge. And I can’t figure out when the Barrel tool would be used. A tutorial or FAQ on a website or social media would be nice.
Like it but...
by Lizd518 on 2020/10/07 00:11
It seems like there are parts of the game that don’t work right. For example, players earn coins...but there is now way to redeem them for anything. I have earned 6 step barrels in my inventory, but they don’t show up as one of the tools to be used during actual game play. And rubies can be redeemed for tools and other items, but it is extremely hard to earn them so the player must resort to buying them. Contrast this with G5’s Mahjong Journey, which makes a lot more sense.
It gradually becomes impossible
by forWhatIt'sWorth on 2020/08/23 02:29
This is a beautiful game. Excellent and artistic graphical. However as you progress through the game, the challenges become impossible to complete within the allotted number of moves. This forces you too endlessly repeat a challenge, or spend real money for additional tools that would allow you to complete the challenge. This game deserves five stars, except for the fact that it is designed to force you to pay up in order to progress.
Enjoyable
by Littlduck on 2019/08/21 21:15
I like this game a lot but there are often problems getting rubies and special offers that are paid for but never show up in game. Plus this is a VERY EXPENSIVE game to play. Without the boosters it is almost impossible to move on, thus the need to buy rubies. IF I could use the huge amount of gold coins for boosters or other needed items to complete collections, it would not be so bad. As it is I will soon be deleting it because I cannot afford to continue buying rubies🥵
Frustrating AF
by kalidame on 2020/02/02 18:43
This game starts out fun. You make progress, find new buildings, improve the settlement... in other words, you win some games and you lose some but you move forward. Then something starts creeping into the game. You start losing more games than you win, so to continue to progress you use the little boost pieces. Next, you’ve used all your boosts and you must buy more with jewels. Here is the frustrating part as you only earn one jewel per level and boosts costs 3-12 jewels each. But hey, you can buy more jewels at $2 per 15. I just played 21 games in a row (without any boosts because I refuse to spend anymore money on a “free” game) and didn’t win a single time. Like I said, FRUSTRATING AF. I won’t be playing this game anymore.
Need a Players guide !
by Freyjah on 2020/04/24 15:51
I am REALLY enjoying this game. I am hoping it is possible to continue to make progress without having to buy stuff ( ex. crystals and coins). SUGGESTION: Why not set up the game for a subscription base play for either the entire G5 games web site or individual games $3.00 a month. This way it will stop feeling like I am being nickeled and dined for things you should be earning in game play. Also it would be helpful to have a player’s guild button. So you can look up what things are and why I need them to progress the game. Thanks
Attempts to solve puzzles
by sawtap60 on 2020/03/29 03:43
I lose interest in games that let you win every screen after only one try, not challenging. However, I also lose interest if it takes 10 tries to win a screen. It shouldn’t take more than 2 to 4 tries to get a win. There are plenty of games out there and they shouldn’t be too hard or two easy. If it takes too many tries to win something, then I know you just want people to buy stuff.
Not too bad
by guido84756 on 2019/08/02 19:56
A little confusing at first with so many quests appearing simultaneously but you get the hang of it pretty quickly. Very nice graphics. Haven’t figured out how to turn off the music yet but will definitely do that when I can. After originally posting this review, that I rated as four stars due to the music issue, I received a very nice e-mail that explained how to turn off the music. That is what I call excellent customer service. 5 stars all the way!!!
Game of fun
by Nythauk on 2020/04/03 08:07
JoR is not as expected. I’ve been @ home for 3 wks. & now I found this gem & just want to be home to play! Graphics, gameplay & progression are all excellent & lvls. are fair but not easy to beat, making the game a great way to spend forced downtime w/o getting frustrated. I gave 5 stars for hitting the mark on all considered traits. In-game purchases aren’t jammed down your throat, game can be played w/o spending real money. In these hard times that is a Big Plus! Job well done devs, 😊 thanks!
Difficulty needs to be reconfigured
by StylistByNight on 2020/08/22 14:59
The game is visually very appealing, and the gameplay would be satisfying, except for the fact that a disproportionate number of levels are just ridiculously difficult. I am moderately skilled at match three games, but I keep running into levels that are literally unplayable without heavy use of extra tools. I’m totally cool with having to replay the occasional level a dozen times, but when it’s every three or four games, and you can only try ten times per day without paying to recharge energy, it makes it a very unpleasant experience.
Why
by icegn on 2020/07/02 15:09
Why do you make it so hard to get the rubies? Not all of us can afford to buy game perks when we have families and need food on our tables. Some of the games need more moves than you give us. I don’t like playing a round 50 times or using up all my bonuses just to get to the next round. I do really like the special games that you have like the current one. If your stuck on a round because it’s so hard to pass it takes all the fun out of the game and you want to quit playing all together. Please HELP!!!
Major Ripoff
by lorrainehornig on 2020/05/22 17:44
G5 entertainment is laughing all the way to the bank. As the player progresses, the game becomes impossible to play without spending major $$$. I am not opposed to spending a little money but come on, people, this is crazy. I recently noticed that I am being double billed when I buy a barrel of crystals...I disputed the charges and got an email from G5 asking me to address concerns to their customer support team. But when I went to the site, it was so convoluted and offered no avenue for true support. It’s too bad, because it is a fun game...until you realize G5 is playing us all as fools. They are greedy and should be ashamed, but I seriously don’t think shame has a place in their business plan.
I really enjoy this game but....
by LSBG on 2019/07/31 23:51
This game is interesting, has a lot of different challenges, and rewards. I would have given it 5 stars, except I feel like you almost HAVE to make purchase to continue to play the game. Otherwise you play it for a few minutes and then can’t play any longer, and have to wait for a few minutes to an hour to get enough energy to play again. I turned my husband on to this game and he also enjoys it, but also feels the same way.
Disappointed
by Mad and let down on 2019/10/28 10:41
This game is no good let’s see I have been playing this game for almost three months, and I will not be continuing to play it. The reason why , is because as soon as I get to the last maybe two items the game just ends I can have one piece of sand left to clear the board and the game just ends with the dreaded word skip , out of time, maybe better luck the next time, and it’s the same answer... No you lose. As for tools you get none to use or to even have a chance at getting to the next quest, the tools are only given when you first download the game and that’s it for tools and within the first one to three levels the tools are already gone.
Fun time waster!
by Kib1960 on 2020/09/03 03:50
I enjoy playing the G5 games. The attention to the soundtrack is impressive. You can play for hours and not have to put out any additional money if you don’t want to, although it does make it hard to complete the bonus games/campaigns. The one issue that I have is that in the “Collections” area, there is no way to sort the completed collections to the bottom of the list, or filter them out. If I have completed a collection, I don’t need to keep completing it over & over... or have it show up in the “almost ready” or “4 of 5” group. It would be nice to have the option to not show completed collections. I have at least 5 different G5 games that I am playing at the same time, just so that I always have something to play. Bona Fide !
Love it.......so far
by Any station, anywhere anytime! on 2019/06/05 11:39
They ask for reviews too quickly! So far it’s great fun and glitch free! If you like Cradles of Rome, you’ll like this one! Colorful and easy to understand the point of the game. The only suggestion I have so far is to add the percentage needed to level up in a site. If you get a quest/task to increase your rank in a specific site, it would help to know how close you are. Otherwise don’t change anything!! Another great G5 game! Update on this is review is the game get VERY hard very quick. Great game but not for those unwilling to pay real cash to move forward.
Reasonably Hard, but not impossible
by Obsessive Tubbs on 2020/09/16 12:06
It has the qualities of a good puzzle game. It slowly gets more difficult, but so far hasn’t reached impossible. I keep returning to play it. Update: It’s been many months since I wrote the review above. I am still playing. The game is kept fresh with frequent updates that present a new side story adventure to play, and new game mechanics, in addition to the main game. My thanks to the publisher for this fun addiction. 👍🏼
Disappearing rubies and energy
by Mobrienn on 2021/10/07 18:49
I enjoy this game and some of the updates have really improved the regular games. However, one update took away 500 of my rubies. And now, this recent update, took away around 27,000 energy points! Why? Also, get rid of the monsters if they aren’t going to serve anymore purpose than just floating around now. I would give this game a higher rating if my points and rubies wouldn’t just disappear! I DID contact you. You never did anything about it. You just say you’re sorry. That is not helpful. Why make my gems and energy disappear to begin with?
Can’t win after so many levels
by Gavensnoni on 2020/12/22 03:57
As many others have stated, the game eventually makes it impossible to win levels without bonus and helpers, and it always seem you are ONLY one move away so you will use up bonuses and have to buy more. You quickly go thru your points playing same level 5-10 times before you amazingly will eventually win. But after only 10 minutes before that happens, it’s time to look for another game. A shame...it could have been fantastic otherwise.
Great Game but Often Glitches
by monoply on 2021/04/28 04:24
I love this game so much! I play it every day. Unfortunately, there are often times where I cannot play because it crashes before I can load it. This usually happens after an update and gets fixed in a few days. Also, usually the updates have a lot of new additions, so bugs are understandable. However, I think that consistency is more important than new additions, so I hope that preventing crashes can be a priority.
