App description: Falling Jewels is an innovative puzzle game which combines the usual falling block and jewel games into something completely different.

Falling Jewels has a moving 3D background and crisp retina graphics to keep you eyes and not just your brain entertained.

You must position two jewels at a time onto a grid to form groups of 3 or more jewels in a line. This will cause the jewels to explode. Exploding jewels will give you points. Don't let the jewels reach the top or it's game over. It gradually gets harder and harder.

Simply press the middle of the screen to rotate the 2 jewels, and the sides of the screen to move them into position.

Have fun with this free app.

This creative new game combines the features of block falling games with those of jewel swapping games.

Falling Jewels is in the New and Noteworthy section which can be seen on the Puzzle page on the itunes app store.

Oddly enough the highest submitted online score, which isn't mine, is 117. My highest score is 1288! Come on people! The game isn't that hard!

I hope you'll like it. Simplicity is good in my book. Tetris is simple and its brilliant.

The programming in this game was far from simple, I must mention.

I agree simplicity is good
I meant visuals looked a little light, but if the gameplay is tight then certainly worth giving it a spin.

Pardon the plug but if you dig the simple-rules games, check mine out as well (also free for a short while)

Okay, I'll look later.

I might change the appearance of the jewels. I was going to before I came to like the current ones.
