5.0 out of 5 stars A cracking winner!, 18 Jun. 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jewel Quest Heritage (PC CD) (CD-ROM)
Very Addictive and challenging.
Unlike the other Jewel Quest games this one follows a family tree from the present back through the ages and to progress in the game you have to complete each 'generation'.
Each 'generation' has a number of characters and each character has between 4 and 5 games to their name. The games relating to that character have a common theme and as you progress through the games they get harder, not surprisingly.
As each game in the level is completed you win a puzzle piece and the pieces can be placed in the blank portraits of the next generation. When a portrait is complete then you can play that charater's games.
It's all very linear and there's no jumping forward until you've finished the 'generation' you're on (unless you know a cheat which I don't). Once a level is finished you can go back and play any game again, if you've a mind to.
The games themselves are very varied and progressively get harder the further 'back in time' you go but, if you replay any game over and over to try and finish it, you are offered assistance in the form of extra time, lines, swaps etc. If, after all the extra help, you still can't finish the game you can opt to have unlimited time and, in some very difficult games, this is a must. Beware - if you're one for building up points then it will cost you points if you take the help.
Once every level is completed you attain "expert" status and can replay any and all the games again but with harder settings.
The background photos are beautiful and the boards are quite good too.
I didn't bother with the music or sounds so cannot comment on these.
All in all, this is by far the most value for money of any game I have played and highly recommend it.
