Objective - Reach the level target score. Drag to swap two adjacent gems to create a match of 3 or more of the same shape. A line of 3 or more removes the gems from the board awarding points for each gem removed. A line of 4 will also create a bomb of the matched shape. Match the bomb in a line with the same shape to detonate it. A line of 5 creates either: A wildcard gem that when swapped with a shape removes all of that same shape from the board. A horizontal lightning gem that detonates an entire row when matched with it's own shape. A vertical lightning gem that detonates an entire column when matched with it's own shape. Matching two lines simultaneously in a T or and L shape creates a cross gem that will remove the entire column and row it is swapped into. Bonuses: Gems falling after a detonation will sometimes result in another match3+ creating a "streak". A streak of three lines creates a random horizontal or vertical lightning when the streak is over. These lightnings go off immediately. A streak of four or more lines creates a random cross lightning that goes off immediately after the streak is over. Additional bonus points are awarded for: Match 4. Match 5. Streaks of 2,3,4,5 etc. Hints and penalties: Certain levels will show a hint after a certain amount of inactivity. Be careful though - some levels may also remove points for being too slow!
