Customer Reviews

Old classic, great fun

Yes, this used to be called "Ancient Quest of Saqqarah", and was available on iOS before it was removed without explanation a couple of years ago. It looks like Big Fish has acquired this game and given it new life under a different name. I am happy about this because I did not get to upgrade to the full version before it was pulled. Whatever the name, this is just about my all-time favorite match game, with unique rules and mechanics not seen elsewhere. There are lots of levels to keep you playing for a while, and I actually quite like the monkey guy because he helps out with some nice powerups. Hoping for a sequel soon.

Twisted Match 3

I am basing my review on the current game as I have no knowledge of past online versions... That being said the game is quite good... There are 672 levels if my calculation is correct :-) This is a match three game but it is quite different from any other that I have seen... It is a very nice and complex twist on the normal match three... It is quite challenging and once you try it I think you would be as addicted as I am... If you are a fan of this genre of Puzzle it is definitely worth downloading to check it out... If I were you I would get it while it's on sale right now ;-)

My Newest Guilty Pleasure

This game was a total surprise. I've played match three games before, quickly growing tired of them, but not this game!

Each temple uses different techniques to match jewels, and each temple has several levels. Each puzzle has a different configuration with several ways of making your matches. I quickly learned to like this game, and in fact, have found it to be quite addictive!

Sahara Jewel has great graphics, sound, and interesting puzzles. An excellent game!
