I have all 3 of these games. Personally I like Jewel Quest II better than Jewel Quest Deluxe because its more challenging. I found Jewel Quest Deluxe to be a little too easy for my liking, but its still a good game. Rainbow Web 2 is a match 3, its not for everybody though. It's well made but directed at a casual audience. Its a mellow game, a good one but some will find it boring.

Likewise, JQD is a lagfest with low fps and cheap animations. Very reminiscent of old cell phone games. JQII is, in turn, a much better title.

Rise of Atantis blows it outta the water. Azkend or Dragon Portals way better than any of the Jewel Quests.

If you like the special effects of Azkend or Montezuma, Jewel Quests can be quite bland.

yep Azkend and Montezuma are my 2 favorite match 3's, but Jewel Quest II is a solid game, shouldn't be overlooked because it came out earlier and doesn't have the special affects of the newer ones.

It has a hidden object mini game and a web match 3 mini game... with story told through text in between the mini games. The story is pretty decent, but the game is for a casual audience, anyone looking for action may get bored. But it is a good game for its kind.
