Sea Jewels Hook's Gold Demo
Match-three games are quite popular with the casual crowds, because they can fill a lot of time and they do not require too much concentration most of the time. On the other hand, they are not too simple either, because that would take the challenge out of it. Hence, in order to create a proper match-three game, the two elements must be carefully measured and combined.
Sail the seas and search for treasure
Sea Jewels Hook's Gold may appear a tad too simple at first, mostly because it doesn’t really use the classic match-three concepts. Hence, the fact that you can keep switching pieces with each other multiple times can seem a bit too easy and straightforward, but there is much more to it than just that. If you are patient enough to get to know it, the game can show you a good time after the lazy intro.
In essence, beside the fact that you can match the pieces together in order to score additional points, you also have a time limit to watch out for. Once you begin matching them, a second timer starts counting, one that lets you know how many seconds you have left to create the biggest combo you can manage. When you are done, you must press fire, or everything is lost if the timer reaches zero.
A lot of levels and worlds to explore
The game is split into worlds, each one of which has multiple levels. Whenever you manage to clear one world, the landscape and the texture of the jewels changes, which means that you get to collect different items in every world. Although they might not be as tough to beat in the beginning, the stages get increasingly more difficult and they start to require good reflexes.
Thankfully, the level design remains just as colorful and cheerful all throughout the adventure, which should keep you smiling at all times. Joyful music plays in the background as well, although the tunes might get repetitive after a while, especially if you like longer gaming sessions. On the other hand, the sound can always be turned off and you can use your own music to keep the boredom at bay.
An interesting twist on the genre
All things considered, Sea Jewels Hook’s Gold is definitely worth a try if you enjoy match-three games and you are on the lookout for something slightly different. Thanks to the plethora of levels and the ever-increasing difficulty, the game should keep you busy for a long time.
