I liked the game. But after the second level, the game stops and an ad comes up. When that happens, my game doesn't come back.

thought it was gem TD parody from warcraft 3, after playing it the concept were completely different, and its fun to play combinations throughout the whole level. But seriously the adloader.....

Gemcraft series are one of the absolute best Tower Defense games ever. Even though this entry is missing a lot of great features, featured in the sequels it is still so much fun to play!

The Ad loader breaks the game after each level forcing a reload, sometimes without a way to close the ad.

Bad idea Newgrounds...or gemcraft, whoever made the adloader.

On the first level, I didn't really get that the created gem type was random, so I was a bit confused. I've since figured it out, and now I'm hooked. Great addicting game with an original concept, and the large amount of upgrades keeps you playing without getting bored.
