"[Gem Spinner] completely changes the whole dynamic of the match-3 formula, and in a good way that doesn’t come off as an attempt to be different just for the sake of being different. Real thought was put into the design of this game, both functionally and aesthetically, and it shows. There’s a genuinely entertaining game here with lasting appeal that brings some unexpected twists to the table — literally and figuratively — and adds a savoury dash of logical thinking to this otherwise staid puzzle formula." -- frapstr.com
Gem Spinner is match-3 like you’ve never played before! It’s based on the popular gem-swapping game play of Bejeweled, but adds some great twists – some like Tetris, some brand new – that make it much more engaging and thought provoking, but still easy to learn and play.
Gems are arranged inside of pieces of different shapes and sizes. Swap adjacent gems to match three in a row. Double-tap a gem to spin its piece 180 degrees. Match all the gems in a piece to clear the piece from the board. Drag pieces to empty board spaces to create more match opportunities. Match enough spaces to complete the level goal and then continue to swap, spin, and drag to try to clear the entire board.
