UPDATE 06-12-2013 - fixed functionality after you lose the battle - it will revert your stats to the stats before you lost the battle, so you get back your coins and you can purchase some another items!
Gemwars is a great combination of popular block collapsing genre and turn based strategy game in which you are playing against computer in 40 levels of increasing difficulty! Hours of challenging and addicting gameplay guaranteed!

Instructions: Please see HOW TO PLAY section for detailed information about the game!

Basically click on a group of 2 or more same types of gems to destroy them! There is shown DAMAGE GEM at the top of the screen, that shows the color of the gems, that causes damage to the enemy! Other colors give you corresponding mana points and coins, you can use these coins after each battle to buy new spells and other upgrades!

Defeat your enemy before he gets you!


* hours of addicting and original gameplay
* 40 levels of increasing difficulty + extra survival levels
* 9 spells + other upgrades
* growing intelligence of the computer - after the first introducing "easy" levels you will stand against a real smart AI! You will have to think strategically and combine breaking gems with using spells to win the battle!
* detailed game stats
* saved progress after each battle - you can continue later by clicking LOAD GAME button in the main menu

needs charecters in it for each level I lost interest on level 4 sadly wanted bage but was to bored to try to get it

your medal system doesn't work

shajby responds:

its working fine for me :/

why dont the upgrades stay with you? they are only for 1 match and thats it

shajby responds:

hi, can you send me please more details? All the upgrades are saved and you have them all the time, not only for one battle (only in case you lost, you will lose them, but you will get your coins back)

First of all, it's great that you actually read the reviews here and change things the community mentioned. That's a fine proof of a win-win situation for the users AND the creators of a game!

With the changes, the game is fun to play and indeed addicting. However, it's still difficult to beat an enemy on the higher levels. I couldn't reach level 20 'cause I can't beat an opponent with twice the spells and a shield.
Maybe you could add some blocks that give the player extra money (simply put a dollarsign on it or something like that) when they get them, or reward us for destroying an enemy shield?

Nonetheless, I enjoyed playing your game and I respect your fast reaction to feedback!

shajby responds:

Hi, thank you for your feedback and new ideas how to improve the game, I will definitely think about them! About the difficulty - I think its really well-balanced. I let my friends play the game before the game was released and they all finished the game in a few days. I think the important is to find your tactic, not only destroying the damage gems but combining destroying damage gems together with spells + checking mana of your enemy to not allow him use his spells etc.

Really fun game but its kinda stupid how the upgrades you make don't stay with you the entire career, only the spells do. That really should have been stated, and changed. The concept is nice with the battle mode, though.

shajby responds:

hi what do you mean, that the upgrades dont stay with you entire career? All upgrades are being saved and updated (if yo buy new item etc) on your way..thanks for info :)
