About Genies & Gems
The first couple of levels could be considered as the tutorial of the game, in which you will learn that you need to match different kinds of gems together, in order to open up the way and allow Trix the Fox to reach one of the stolen treasure chests. All of the gems in Genies & Gems have different colors, such as yellow, purple, red, green and blue. The goal in Genies & Gems is to match at least three of the same colored gems together, in order to open up the way for Trix.
Of course, there are also several different gems that you will need to match, in order to be able to progress through the game. For example, the most important gem in the game is in the form of paws, and you will need to match the color of those paws with the regular gems. Matching paws will allow Trix the Fox to jump one step in the direction of the stolen treasure chest.
Another important gem in Genies & Gems is called the butterfly gem. If you manage to match a butterfly gem with regular gems, the butterfly gem will come alive and fly to the nearest paw gem, which means that Trix the Fox will automatically take a jump towards the treasure chest.
The ultimate goal in Genies & Gems is to get Trix the Fox to the stolen treasure chest, within the amount of moves that you get per level. If you do not manage to reach the treasure chest, you will have to start the level over from the beginning. If you do manage to successfully complete the objectives of the level, within the limit of moves that you have received at the beginning of that particular level, you will unlock the next level, allowing you to progress through the game.
In all of the levels in Genies & Gems, you can earn a maximum amount of three gold stars, with one gold star being the minimum. The amount of gold stars that you earn depends on how well you have performed during your gameplay. At first, the amount of gold stars that you earn will not seem very important, but when you reach the next stage of the world map, you will have to have a certain amount of gold stars in your inventory. If you do not have the required amount of gold stars, you will have to return and replay the levels where you received one or two stars.
In Genies & Gems, you have a total amount of five lives. If you do not manage to successfully complete a level, you will lose one of your lives. After you have lost all of your lives, you will either have to wait thirty minutes for one of your lives to regenerate, or you will have to ask one of your friends to send you several of their lives. The only way you can ask your friends to help you in Genies & Gems, is by connecting to the game with your Facebook account. Of course, you can also regenerate all of your lives by spending a certain amount of your in-game currency.
Genies & Gems In-game store
There is only one kind of currency in Genies & Gems, which is in the form of gold coins. The only way to obtain gold coins for free is by either getting them as rewards, or by logging in with your Facebook account, which rewards you with twenty five free gold coins. There is only one use for gold coins in Genies & Gems, which is to instantly regenerate all of your five lives. The price to regenerate all of your lives in Genies & Gems is one hundred and twenty give gold coins.
If you do not wish to play the game to obtain gold coins, there is also an in-game store where you can purchase gold coins with money. The price for gold coins starts at $0,99 for the smallest amount of 25 gold coins and goes up till $99,99 for the largest amount of 3125 gold coins. After purchasing the gold coins, they will automatically be added to your inventory. It does not seem like there are any power-ups or boosters in Genies & Gems, which is a shame.
Cheats & Tips for Genies & Gems
Even though Genies & Gems has only been released very recently, there are already several websites that claim to be offering working cheat tools, hack tools or mods for the game. By downloading and using those so called cheat tools, you can allegedly hack into the game files on your mobile device, and give yourself an unlimited amount of gold coins. Even though the claims sound ridiculous and fake, there are still a lot of people that fall for these tricks, simply because they are willing to do almost anything, just to get their hands on some working cheat tools.
The reason why there are so many of those fake cheat tool websites these days is because a lot of people have recently gotten into mobile gaming. Nowadays, it is very common for young children and seniors to have smartphones, and those are exactly the people that fall for these scams and tricks. Before you are able to even download the so called cheat tools, you will first have to fill in a survey, which generates an income for the scam artists behind those websites.
After you have filled in a survey and downloaded the so called cheat tool, you will quickly find out that you have been scammed, and that he files you have just downloaded are nothing but empty shell programs, weird images and text documents. Even if it seems like a program just started, it doesn’t actually function. Instead of wasting your time trying to find working cheats for Genies & Gems, I will give you some tips and tricks that will help you during your gameplay.
Genies & Gems Gameplay Tips and Tricks
Just like many other mobile games, Genies & Gems also has a playtime limitation system, which is in the form of lives. Every time that you do not manage to successfully complete a level, you will lose one of your lives. It takes a whopping thirty minutes for one of your lives to regenerate, which means that you will have to wait over two hours, just to get all of your lives back.
Such systems are designed to either make you log in with your Facebook account, in order to invite your friends to the game and ask them for lives, or to make you spend money on the gold coins, just to be able to instantly replenish all of your lives. Luckily for all of you that enjoy playing Genies & Gems, I know of a trick that you can use to replenish all of your lives, without having to wait for the timers to run out, or without having to spend money on the game.
This trick is called the time-lapse trick, and you can use this trick on any game that does not required you to be connected to the internet. After you have lost all of your lives, you can start by completely closing Genies & Gems, and making sure that the game is not running in the background of your mobile device. After you have sure that the game is closed down, you can continue by forwarding the time on your mobile device by three hours.
When you restart the game now, you will see that all of your lives have been replenished already, which means that you can immediately start playing the game again. After you have used the time-lapse cheat, do not forget to set the time on your mobile device back to its correct state.
Genies & Gems Review
I am not a very big fan of match-three puzzle games, especially after I have seen and played several of them. In my opinion, there is nothing original about match-three games; however, this doesn’t mean that I gave Genies & Gems an unbiased chance. After reading the description and checking out the screenshots on Google Play Store, I was interested in trying the game out.
I was pleasantly surprised to find out that there is a nice story in Genies & Gems, in which you need to help a genie and a fox to retrieve all of the stolen palace treasures. Usually, match-three puzzle games do not have a story, which is a shame, because having a story does enhance the gameplay in this genre. Next to the story, I also enjoyed all of the visuals of the game. I like the fact that there are so many different level designs and special effects in the game as well.
A very positive aspect about Genies & Gems is that the developers did not implement any ads into the game. I normally do not mind when free-to-play games have a couple of ads in them, simply because I think the developers should be rewarded for their hard work; however, most of the developers of free-to-play games go overboard when it comes to implementing ads into their games. Luckily for us, there are no annoying or obstructive ads in Genies & Gems.
Even though I enjoyed playing Genies & Gems, I also experienced several negative aspects during my gameplay. For starters, the developers of Genies & Gems have implemented a playtime limitation system into the game, which comes in the form of lives/timers. Every time that you do not manage to successfully complete a level, you will lose one of your five lives. When you run out of lives, you will have to wait thirty minutes for one of them to regenerate.
Of course, you could log in with your Facebook account and ask you friends for more lives, or you could spend some money on the game and regenerate your lives instantly; however, the developers should know that not everyone wants to, or is able to spend money on a mobile game, especially if it is free-to-play. On top of that, no one is waiting to get limited when it comes to the duration of gameplay, which is why a playtime limitation system is very negative.
Another negative aspect about Genies & Gems is that the gameplay becomes very repetitive, after you have gone through the first ten levels of the game. It is true that there are many different levels available in the game; however, most of the time, they have the same exact objectives that you need to complete. It would have been nice if the developers implemented several mini games into the game, which would make the gameplay more entertaining.
Genies & Gems Ratings
Artwork: I give Genies & Gems an 8/10 for its artwork. The graphics, animations and special effects in Genies & Gems are pretty decent, especially considering that it is a free-to-play mobile game. I really appreciate the fact that the developers have implemented several characters, many different level designs, and colorful gems of different shapes into the game. Visually, Genies & Gems is an excellent game, and the developers should be praised for their hard work.
Music & SFX: I give Genies & Gems a 7/10 for its music and SFX. There are several different soundtracks and sound effects of decent quality in Genies & Gems. The game has an Arabian theme, and the developers managed to implement soundtracks that fit well with that theme. The developers did a good job at combining the graphics and animations together with the soundtracks and sound effects of the game, making the gameplay very balanced.
Story & Originality: I give Genies & Gems a 7/10 for its story and originality. Even though Genies & Gems is not very original, simply because there are so many different match-three games, I still think the game has a lot of potential. I really like the fact that the developers chose one single theme, and build the game around that. I also really like the fact that the developers have implemented a story into the game, which definitely enhances the overall gameplay.
General Gameplay: I give Genies & Gems a 6/10 for general gameplay. The gameplay in Genies & Gems starts with a couple of tutorial levels, in which you will learn about all the different gems in the game, how to successfully match them and how to properly play the game. Even though there are hundreds of levels in Genies & Gems, I still feel like the developers could have done better when it comes to implemented different objectives in the game. After a certain while, the gameplay gets very repetitive and boring, which is very unfortunate. Luckily, the controls are smooth and responsive, and the user interface fits the overall theme of the game.
Addictiveness: I give Genies & Gems a 6/10 for addictiveness. It is unfortunate, but I cannot really say that Genies & Gems is a very addictive game, simply because the developers have implemented a playtime limitation system into the game. You have a total of five lives, and losing one of your lives means that you have to wait thirty minutes for it to regenerate.
I know that there are a lot of people that spend money on such games, which is why developers keep implementing them into their games; however, if the developers of Genies & Gems want to make the game more addictive, they should definitely think about decreasing the amount of time that it takes for one of your lives to get regenerated.
All things considered, I give Genies & Gems a 7/10.
