Ancient Jewels 3: Cleopatra's Treasures is a pretty simple match 3 game with Oriental music. The game offers 80 levels and 9 bonuses to play. The task, as usual, is to match 3 or more jewels of the same color on a board. Though, unlike other games of the genre, you do not have to drag a jewel and form a horizontal or vertical line, but connect the jewels with the cursor into any line.
The game has no story, and is not challenging to play. All the boards are easy to pass, and lots of power-ups like hammers, bombs, shuffles, etc. are available. Though, chained, stoned and other gems are also present to harden the gameplay. And all the levels are timed.
The graphic of the game is rather colorful, the music is up to someone's taste, the sound effects are shattering, the background images are quite picturesque, but hardly seen.
You can play the game in the windowed mode, music and sound effects volume can be adjusted, the progress can be saved when quitting. But do not loose your savings, as on the map the levels are opened not one by one, but in five ones.
All in all, for me, Ancient Jewels 3: Cleopatra's Treasures is not a game to spend an evening playing at.
- No story
- Not challenging
- Shattering sound effects
