A battle/puzzle game with monsters so epic that you'll forget you're still in the bathroom.

You’re a busy hero. You have dragons to rescue and princesses to defeat. Or is it the other way around? Join the other players in a race to the fire-erupting, skull-faced volcano lair at the top of the world map. It’s called Mount Death Dread Doom Skull. Within it, you will find the ultimate prize. The path there is an unforgettable adventure, fraught with peril (…and puns). Battle dragons, zombies, and over a hundred unique monsters serving delusional arch villains.

It will take you less than 10 seconds to learn how to launch attacks using the battle gems. Drag your wickedly-talented finger over 3 or more matching gems to launch a simple attack. Each type of gem does something different. Learn new strategies, powers, animated skills, and grow stronger with every step of your journey. But your first opponent is a Red Dragon boss fight. Good luck with that!

FUN, ADDICTIVE & UNIQUE GAMEPLAY! Battle Gems is the evolution of our original PvP web puzzle game. It features over the top fantasy characters and interesting new game mechanics.

150+ FULLY ANIMATED MONSTERS! Battle crazy and bizarre creatures including Octobear (Octopus + Bear?), Brutalcorn (you sorta need to see this one for yourself), Gandolphin (“You shall not splash!”), crazy elemental and undead dragons and more...

BEAUTIFUL WORLD MAP WITH 450+ QUESTS! Every step of the way towards Mount Death Dread Doom Skull is filled with exciting quests and side challenges. Race your friends to the top.

COLLECT EVERY WEAPON, ARMOR & PET! Are you a rare item hunter? With Battle Gem’s unlimited inventory, you can get literally every item in the entire game. And you will want to! Not just because you can customize your character to look however you want, but each and every item you own permanently increases your power. Items are obtained in game using gold or by completing quests.

PLAYER VS PLAYER (PvP)! Battle your friends and then send them screenshots of your victory!

BECOME THE BATTLE KING! Do you have what it takes to journey all the way to the top of the world map and face the diabolical (OMG I love using the word diabolical) dragon which lives in the volcanic lair!?

PUNS! But you should download and install the game anyway.

***MAJOR BUG!***


I love this game on my phone and fire kindle HD. No complaints there. However the iPad version has a major bug in it that causes numbered “cages” to appear as blacked-out boxes. You can’t see the skull or gem underneath. It’s just a black box with a number on it. It’s not until you “break” the cage that the glitched box goes away and reveals whatever was originally there. This is very frustrating as it prevents you from knowing if it is a skull or specific gem so that you can strategize accordingly. Please fix this bug. It’s so frustrating that it makes me almost not want to play it anymore. Me and my bf play this together, him on the kindle, me on the iPad, and his version works flawlessly with no blacked-out boxes. I will be happy to give 5stars⭐️ when this issue is fixed.

Devs, HELP!!!


Love the game. Also playing AQ3D, which is so wonderful, it takes me back to EverQuest vanilla!! Here's my issue in this game:

I keep getting a persistent error in PnP battles : Error: missing life error. I accumulate no trophies at all and it's seriously frustrating. Can you guys have a look at this error as I suspect I'm not the only one affected. As a pvp maniac, it's altering the satisfaction level significantly. PLEASE HELP. I will provide you with my log in credentials in private email so this may be researched. I see the quick responses in the review section of AQ3D, and dearly hope you are also monitoring this thread as closely.

My thanks in advance!!

Thank you for your review. Can you please go to and submit a ticket? Then we can have a developer investigate this issue.

I like the game but I think there's a bug


Is anybody else getting this bug where you can't see the gems past slime or cages? If this is happening for everybody else please fix it, I'm on the last boss and can't win because I can't see anything.
