If the game wouldn’t freeze all the time, it could be fun. I’ve about had it with the glitches.
Ripped off again
by Quail Kid on 2020/10/17 03:27
I really wonder who writes the 4 and 5 star reviews after they play this game for a few weeks. I agree it is fun at the beginning. Then G5 begins their usual grind for dollars by increasing the level failures to a point of total frustration. Maybe G5 you should have third party ads. Versus adds for your crap. Happy gamers can be generous gamers, but not in the worlds you create. I guess there are enough suckers out there to keep your company running, but I suspect COVID times may finally get you kicked to the curb

Total fail!
by Lolynne on 2020/10/16 16:38
I love this game, and everything was going well until I found all of the blueprint pieces for the Silver Mine. The Silver Mine is a cash grab. Once I got there I got an option to buy a switch item tool for $9.99. I didn’t want it so I hit the “X” button at the top of the screen. I got a message that told me if I quit now I would have to start over. I cannot continue without paying for their items. I refuse to do that. I don’t want the items. I guess I am done with Jewels of Rome. And any other Jewels game, for that matter. I give the game one star because as a game it is well done.

This past few days...
by ibbebop on 2020/10/15 08:29
I would like to thank you for allowing us to play each area for free. I have not had to use any of any energy. Since I am on a fixed income and cannot afford extra this past few days have been wonderful. Thanks again! To continue with this comment, what is this message if you don’t buy suggested items you have to start over. As I have stated above, I am not able to afford to buy any of the items jut what I am able to earn through playing the game. I think it is a bit unfair that we loose because of not able to buy suggested items!!
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.

Great game but
by ElSheedy on 2020/10/13 19:25
Love the game but, you can not complete a lot of the puzzles without using tools. You might win some of the tools but the only way to buy them is with jewels. You get 1 jewel at the start of each level. Gold is flung at you but it is practically useless. Jewels can only been bought for cash. I have wasted to much on this game and will not be buying any more. It is hard to believe people buy “discounted” packages for $50!

Hey
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.

Money of Rome
by Pomelo grower on 2020/10/05 14:58
This game is fun but if you want to win- you had better pay. During this pandemic I just want to relax a bit and I DON’T have the extra cash to spend. I enjoy the beautiful graphics and the clever ideas. But the game is super challenging when you don’t have boosters. I bow to the developers skills, but it is a grind to win !

by Grandmarie04 on 2020/10/04 23:50
While I like the app, I am having a terrible problem with using energy. I have lost over 300 energy in the last few days. I add it but unfortunately it never goes into my bank even though it gets deducted from my energy reserve. I tried to send feedback and the app doesn’t allow me to type my complaint.

Just like many other people, I have been playing this game for some time, but after this last update the game blacks out in mid game and I have to restart the game and it is getting worse. I just may stop playing till they fix this since it is happening to a lot of people.

Something to do.

Excellent game! But could it be better?
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

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.
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.
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.
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!

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!
Needs more options to get items.
by ladymatey on 2020/09/10 14:29
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This past few days...
by ibbebop on 2020/10/15 08:29
I would like to thank you for allowing us to play each area for free. I have not had to use any of any energy. Since I am on a fixed income and cannot afford extra this past few days have been wonderful. Thanks again! To continue with this comment, what is this message if you don’t buy suggested items you have to start over. As I have stated above, I am not able to afford to buy any of the items jut what I am able to earn through playing the game. I think it is a bit unfair that we loose because of not able to buy suggested items!!
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.
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
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.
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.
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🥵
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.
Consistent progress costs money
by rarjar1 on 2020/04/03 01:00
Love the game, but in my opinion, the Game makers have game programmed to burn thru your power and you have to either wait for power to rebuild or spend money to complete scenes or add power. Plus, jewels are too expensive. The game also usually makes several series unwinable instead of making the game random. I’ve played this game for almost a year- I am convinced it’s programmed to convince you to spend money to get more power or more moves...I’m done with this f’ing game and am going to delete it off my iPad. Beware unless you want to have to spend a boatload of money! F’em!
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.
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. 👍🏼
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 !
Some ideas
by MommaWolf14895 on 2020/04/21 17:07
Please have a way to have more energy because you can’t play very long. Other G5 games are giving us free lives/energy especially with this COVID 19 to enjoy. Maybe every time you beat a world refill the energy/lives would help. Have friends be able to send energy/lives as well. In other games they have animals that you tap on and it gives you more energy. Just some ideas thanks.
Enjoying game, but confused
by QAQAQA on 2020/07/21 23:59
I am enjoying the game so far but based on feedback in a lot of forums I get the idea that it’s going to become pretty impossible/expensive at higher levels. In the meantime, it should be obvious, I guess, but I don’t understand why sometimes when you meet all the objectives - beat the match 3 puzzle - you acquire the special goal piece or level and sometimes you don’t. Is it random? Based on score? Have to beat the match 3 a specific number of times?
Good game but sometimes frustrating
by ThumperFluffy on 2020/05/31 00:13
Don’t get me wrong, I do love this game and play everyday, but, they need to up the rewards and especially the tokens for playing the side quests. The way they did it for Easter was perfect but the way they are doing the current quest (chariot races) I just feel they need to give tokens according to the level you are at in the quest. They do that with the daily reward from the statue but they need to give more than 11 tokens for completing a puzzle. Just saying.
Fun game with historical feel
by turtlefenix on 2020/06/12 20:36
I am enjoying this game. I got Jewels Wild West first. I liked it so much that I thought I would try this one. The characters are appealing and relatable. The game play gives useful hints and bonuses. I hope there is more of a feel of archeology to it as it goes. I like building places, but I love finding things just as much. I think the feel of archeology and the match 3 play where you uncover items fits well together.
Great
by EmilyV99 on 2019/08/27 10:14
I love the concept of the game. I also like how many options to play. Instead of levels, we have different locations to chose to play and collect items. Sometimes it’s hard like any other matching games but that’s fine for me. The only problem is how hard it’s to get the items. Even if I pass, I still cannot get the item I need and proceed to the next round. One last thing, I love the music.
Not happy
by Justmenanc on 2020/04/28 03:30
I had been playing for guide some time, was in the middle of finishing phase two of the quest for the rabbit puppet and had upgraded my newest settlement( jewelry maker?) when the game froze and then wouldn't open. I had spent a lot of money getting to where I was on jewels and chests and after contacting the support team 2 weeks or more later I try the game and it opens only to find EVERYTHING gone and my game at the beginning with zero coins and jewels !!! I am hoping they fix this or at least give me back the coins and jewels I had paid for....we will see. I'm embossed by how much I spent on this game only to be taken to the cleaners !! Fix this please !!!
Deceiving game “help”
by Skyebyrd3 on 2019/10/14 21:05
I have learned while trying to make matches in the game if there are suggestions for swaps, NEVER do as suggested or your gameplay will be over within about 2 more swaps. It is hard but I have trained myself to always look for something different and I can usually win the match. As another game player said, it is impossible to get red crystals without buying them, and no way to use the many gold coins that we earn. I will keep playing as long as I can but I refuse to buy gems in order to play a “free” game.
Back at the beginning again.
by Stats Janet on 2020/05/17 00:31
This game has set me back to level 3 about 5 times now. Now, when it looks for things I can find, the quest option doesn’t even show up as something I can find. So, in other words, I can progress absolutely nowhere as I cannot even complete the current quest (which I completed 5 previous times). Contacted support and they have done absolutely nothing except send an email saying if I don’t respond, the will close the ticket. Not even saying anything about the problem itself. In fact, I have NEVER gotten any ticket resolved for any G5 game and I have spent a fortune on one of them (Hidden City).
Jewels of Rome
by Susiecookie on 2020/04/05 02:47
This game could be fun. However, after you have won a few rounds it becomes almost impossible to win unless you make purchases. It would be nice to receive rubies more often so you can at least get ahead a little. I usually only play a couple of sites in the game and then get frustrated and close the game. To purchase items to help costs way too much so you have to spend lots of money to get anywhere in the game. The story line is fun and graphics are great but that is about all that is good.
Great challenges
by TurboTax2005 on 2020/06/08 14:45
Entertaining to play but would like the main character to spend less time on screen. After playing a few challenges she could easily skip appearing at the end of each challenge. Transitioning from end of challenge to main screen takes too much time and steps. Adding the ‘skip’ to the end run of remaining moves helped but need more.
Balanced difficulty with ease
by Greedy Nana on 2020/03/16 16:48
It has been my experience in most games like this, that winning a level without spending money is rare, especially as you attain higher levels. This game though, keeps me interested and allows me to win more than lose. No discouragement as yet. And no annoying ads—thank you for that! I also enjoy the match three games along different. All in all, a great game.
Biggest problem
by KitWulfe on 2019/07/10 01:26
My biggest complaint with all new games is there aren’t several different tutorial levels. There are those who have never played and need major tutorials. Then there are those of us just looking for a new game and all we need is a tutorial on what is unique here. My second complaint is “we are giving you some boosters to help solve the game. Use this one now.” Not a freebie to see how it works, but one of the ones you just “gave” us.

If the game wouldn’t freeze all the time, it could be fun. I’ve about had it with the glitches.
Ripped off again
by Quail Kid on 2020/10/17 03:27
I really wonder who writes the 4 and 5 star reviews after they play this game for a few weeks. I agree it is fun at the beginning. Then G5 begins their usual grind for dollars by increasing the level failures to a point of total frustration. Maybe G5 you should have third party ads. Versus adds for your crap. Happy gamers can be generous gamers, but not in the worlds you create. I guess there are enough suckers out there to keep your company running, but I suspect COVID times may finally get you kicked to the curb

I love this game, and everything was going well until I found all of the blueprint pieces for the Silver Mine. The Silver Mine is a cash grab. Once I got there I got an option to buy a switch item tool for $9.99. I didn’t want it so I hit the “X” button at the top of the screen. I got a message that told me if I quit now I would have to start over. I cannot continue without paying for their items. I refuse to do that. I don’t want the items. I guess I am done with Jewels of Rome. And any other Jewels game, for that matter. I give the game one star because as a game it is well done.
Great game

This past few days...
by ibbebop on 2020/10/15 08:29
I would like to thank you for allowing us to play each area for free. I have not had to use any of any energy. Since I am on a fixed income and cannot afford extra this past few days have been wonderful. Thanks again! To continue with this comment, what is this message if you don’t buy suggested items you have to start over. As I have stated above, I am not able to afford to buy any of the items jut what I am able to earn through playing the game. I think it is a bit unfair that we loose because of not able to buy suggested items!!
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.

by ElSheedy on 2020/10/13 19:25
Love the game but, you can not complete a lot of the puzzles without using tools. You might win some of the tools but the only way to buy them is with jewels. You get 1 jewel at the start of each level. Gold is flung at you but it is practically useless. Jewels can only been bought for cash. I have wasted to much on this game and will not be buying any more. It is hard to believe people buy “discounted” packages for $50!

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.

This game is fun but if you want to win- you had better pay. During this pandemic I just want to relax a bit and I DON’T have the extra cash to spend. I enjoy the beautiful graphics and the clever ideas. But the game is super challenging when you don’t have boosters. I bow to the developers skills, but it is a grind to win !

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

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.
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.
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.
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!
Difficulty -
by mstrvler on 2020/03/30 14:34
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!
Needs more options to get items.
by ladymatey on 2020/09/10 14:29
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This past few days...
by ibbebop on 2020/10/15 08:29
I would like to thank you for allowing us to play each area for free. I have not had to use any of any energy. Since I am on a fixed income and cannot afford extra this past few days have been wonderful. Thanks again! To continue with this comment, what is this message if you don’t buy suggested items you have to start over. As I have stated above, I am not able to afford to buy any of the items jut what I am able to earn through playing the game. I think it is a bit unfair that we loose because of not able to buy suggested items!!
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.
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
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.
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.
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🥵
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.
Consistent progress costs money
by rarjar1 on 2020/04/03 01:00
Love the game, but in my opinion, the Game makers have game programmed to burn thru your power and you have to either wait for power to rebuild or spend money to complete scenes or add power. Plus, jewels are too expensive. The game also usually makes several series unwinable instead of making the game random. I’ve played this game for almost a year- I am convinced it’s programmed to convince you to spend money to get more power or more moves...I’m done with this f’ing game and am going to delete it off my iPad. Beware unless you want to have to spend a boatload of money! F’em!
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.
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. 👍🏼
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 !
Some ideas
by MommaWolf14895 on 2020/04/21 17:07
Please have a way to have more energy because you can’t play very long. Other G5 games are giving us free lives/energy especially with this COVID 19 to enjoy. Maybe every time you beat a world refill the energy/lives would help. Have friends be able to send energy/lives as well. In other games they have animals that you tap on and it gives you more energy. Just some ideas thanks.
Enjoying game, but confused
by QAQAQA on 2020/07/21 23:59
I am enjoying the game so far but based on feedback in a lot of forums I get the idea that it’s going to become pretty impossible/expensive at higher levels. In the meantime, it should be obvious, I guess, but I don’t understand why sometimes when you meet all the objectives - beat the match 3 puzzle - you acquire the special goal piece or level and sometimes you don’t. Is it random? Based on score? Have to beat the match 3 a specific number of times?
Good game but sometimes frustrating
by ThumperFluffy on 2020/05/31 00:13
Don’t get me wrong, I do love this game and play everyday, but, they need to up the rewards and especially the tokens for playing the side quests. The way they did it for Easter was perfect but the way they are doing the current quest (chariot races) I just feel they need to give tokens according to the level you are at in the quest. They do that with the daily reward from the statue but they need to give more than 11 tokens for completing a puzzle. Just saying.
Fun game with historical feel
by turtlefenix on 2020/06/12 20:36
I am enjoying this game. I got Jewels Wild West first. I liked it so much that I thought I would try this one. The characters are appealing and relatable. The game play gives useful hints and bonuses. I hope there is more of a feel of archeology to it as it goes. I like building places, but I love finding things just as much. I think the feel of archeology and the match 3 play where you uncover items fits well together.
Great
by EmilyV99 on 2019/08/27 10:14
I love the concept of the game. I also like how many options to play. Instead of levels, we have different locations to chose to play and collect items. Sometimes it’s hard like any other matching games but that’s fine for me. The only problem is how hard it’s to get the items. Even if I pass, I still cannot get the item I need and proceed to the next round. One last thing, I love the music.
Not happy
by Justmenanc on 2020/04/28 03:30
I had been playing for guide some time, was in the middle of finishing phase two of the quest for the rabbit puppet and had upgraded my newest settlement( jewelry maker?) when the game froze and then wouldn't open. I had spent a lot of money getting to where I was on jewels and chests and after contacting the support team 2 weeks or more later I try the game and it opens only to find EVERYTHING gone and my game at the beginning with zero coins and jewels !!! I am hoping they fix this or at least give me back the coins and jewels I had paid for....we will see. I'm embossed by how much I spent on this game only to be taken to the cleaners !! Fix this please !!!
Deceiving game “help”
by Skyebyrd3 on 2019/10/14 21:05
I have learned while trying to make matches in the game if there are suggestions for swaps, NEVER do as suggested or your gameplay will be over within about 2 more swaps. It is hard but I have trained myself to always look for something different and I can usually win the match. As another game player said, it is impossible to get red crystals without buying them, and no way to use the many gold coins that we earn. I will keep playing as long as I can but I refuse to buy gems in order to play a “free” game.
Back at the beginning again.
by Stats Janet on 2020/05/17 00:31
This game has set me back to level 3 about 5 times now. Now, when it looks for things I can find, the quest option doesn’t even show up as something I can find. So, in other words, I can progress absolutely nowhere as I cannot even complete the current quest (which I completed 5 previous times). Contacted support and they have done absolutely nothing except send an email saying if I don’t respond, the will close the ticket. Not even saying anything about the problem itself. In fact, I have NEVER gotten any ticket resolved for any G5 game and I have spent a fortune on one of them (Hidden City).
Jewels of Rome
by Susiecookie on 2020/04/05 02:47
This game could be fun. However, after you have won a few rounds it becomes almost impossible to win unless you make purchases. It would be nice to receive rubies more often so you can at least get ahead a little. I usually only play a couple of sites in the game and then get frustrated and close the game. To purchase items to help costs way too much so you have to spend lots of money to get anywhere in the game. The story line is fun and graphics are great but that is about all that is good.
Great challenges
by TurboTax2005 on 2020/06/08 14:45
Entertaining to play but would like the main character to spend less time on screen. After playing a few challenges she could easily skip appearing at the end of each challenge. Transitioning from end of challenge to main screen takes too much time and steps. Adding the ‘skip’ to the end run of remaining moves helped but need more.
Balanced difficulty with ease
by Greedy Nana on 2020/03/16 16:48
It has been my experience in most games like this, that winning a level without spending money is rare, especially as you attain higher levels. This game though, keeps me interested and allows me to win more than lose. No discouragement as yet. And no annoying ads—thank you for that! I also enjoy the match three games along different. All in all, a great game.
Biggest problem
by KitWulfe on 2019/07/10 01:26
My biggest complaint with all new games is there aren’t several different tutorial levels. There are those who have never played and need major tutorials. Then there are those of us just looking for a new game and all we need is a tutorial on what is unique here. My second complaint is “we are giving you some boosters to help solve the game. Use this one now.” Not a freebie to see how it works, but one of the ones you just “gave” us.
