Default Archna's Free Game of the Week: Jewel Gears

Rotate the board to clear the jewels in as few moves as possible (grouping the jewels together makes them disappear).

Click the link to play the game: Jewel Gears

Don't forget if you have a suggestion for a game and want to see it in the Moneysaving tip email freegame@moneysavingexpert.com

Note from Martin: Why it's Archna's Free Game of the Week

You'll notice that it's Archna's free game of the week, much like it's Andrea's Freebies. MSE Archna is a stalwart of the team, and in charge of making sure everything's organised, sorted, collated, checked, researched and generally spiffing in the e-mail - as well as being a seriously good researcher.

Sadly though, I noticed that occasionally she loses focus and catch her playing the games that we put at the end of the e-mail. She persuaded me this was part of her 'testing work' - so now it's an official part of her job. She gets to choose the games each week! Blame her if they're no good!

One flaw in this game. If you solve it in one move it does not recognise it as a win and just sits there letting you move the board with no jewels on it. Have to do retry and take two moves. Otherwise a fun game, and the one move thing may not matter in the higher levels.
A fool may give advice but the one who takes it is the bigger fool.

I'm stuck on 11 too!!

You know the one move thing it does say make two combos so that needs to be done in two moved (you can do it in 1 move if you allow them to disappear one after the other).

Decent game, at level 18 though I completed it 4 times and it never registered it as complete. So have given up.

You didn't complete it then

On the combo levels, you have to clear the board in one go, but not in a way that'll delete 2 colours at the same time. So deleting (for example) the light green ones clears the way for (again, for example) a red one to drop so they can vanish, which allows a blue to drop removing the blues, and that makes a space to let the orange one drop and remove those...

It's quite a good game really, shame there are only 20 levels to it and it finishes before it gets difficult.
