Object of Gem Game is to "mine" gems from the playing board. Click to shift any two adjacent (horizontally or vertically) gems. To successfully "mine", create a row or column of at least 3 similar gems. Then, gems will be pulled from the board, those above them will drop down, and new gems will fall into place at the top.

If you need help, you can hit the 'Hint' button on level 1, but it will deduct 50 points. Levels 2 through 5 are for the advanced players, as they have time limits imposed (With additional time granted for each successful move).
