Once upon a time, a community of elves used to inhabit a warm, fertile land with cool waterfalls. But one day, an evil sorcerer cast a ghastly spell over their homeland. He hid the antidote in a magical gem and left it somewhere not far from the base of the volcano. In order to get your hands on this magical gem, you’ll have to solve a smorgasbord of puzzles. You are the last hope for the elves and their salvation.

Check out Delenns posts over in the game discussion forums HERE and HERE for details of other free games. Steam has several usually commercial games that have been made temporarily free; so long as you get the games while they are free, they will be yours to keep. Also check out Epic Games, they have added more games to the usual offerings with five games free this week HERE (the free to play Paladins that is listed includes a bundle that usually costs you money) .
Hidden Jewel Adventure
Although Hidden Jewel Adventure is obviously an old game (you can tell by the graphics as they are pretty pixelated compared to games made over the last decade), its quite an entertaining game that has several categories of puzzles that are a combination of match three, lines, and hidden object.
1) ... Drop jewels to match three of the same colour. You can make diagonal matches, left click to drop a jewel or right click to swap the jewel for a different coloured jewel. As you progress power ups such as a rainbow crystal will be added that can be used to match any colour.
2) ... Find the correct magical glyphs on a wall filled with glyphs, you may have to find more than one of at least three types.
3) ... Line up jewels to complete rows and columns by clicking on them to move them to the empty space.You can move several jewels with one click. also, as you progress some jewels may be locked in place.
4) ... Find a numbered amount of a particular hidden object; for example,, find ten butterflies or keys.
5) ... Interspersed among the different puzzles are mini games.
Please stay safe everyone

Columns 2 was recently released on Nintendo Switch, so to see a game follow in this style of play is a refreshing change from the normal match game.

I agree, it's nice to see a mix of different match three styles, plus other genres. Makes for a more entertaining game IMO. Stay Safe Little Bear. Maybe catch you on Steam sometime. :)

Ooh, I like this one! Yes, it's old and a bit clunky, but then so am I - it isn't superfast (too fast for me to run after), it isn't all in darkness (my eyes don't do dark, these days) and it's possible to complete a level without yelling for help. It's bright and colourful, the tasks (so far) are manageable, and I managed to get through the first five sections without resorting to a strong cuppa to keep my spirits up!

No problems with the download or the installation (Win 10 laptop) and all still seems to be working, including me. So, yes - a brilliant offering today! Many thanks as ever to GGAOTD, to Toomky Games and the always reliable Whiterabbit for his review, which as ever is a good way of deciding whether a game is for me, or not.

This one is for me - you must have remembered my recent birthday! - and I'm going back shortly for another session and, I hope, a few more jewels to add to my collection. Thanks again!

WhiteRabbit, I want you to know how much I appreciate your review of games over the several years (can't remember how many right now) I've been coming to game.giveawayoftheday.com. I'm 78 and used to enjoy HOG games but in recent years I prefer Match3. You and your family stay safe, too.

Laurie Nelson,

Thank you Laurie, you stay safe as well.

I used to post a paragraph or more when the game giveaways first started back in December 2006. Then from mid 2007 onward I started to post full reviews of most games, (though not every day, as we were still getting a game every day back then and just didn't have the time to post every day, plus there were other community members who also posted really good reviews and useful comments such as {in no particular order} Game Seeker, Ambrosia, Belgian Dude, Sky Frontier, Cad Delworth, Fubar, Lockett, Bonnie, and my friend Delenn; thankfully a couple of those are still around after all these years i.e. Delenn and Cad Delworth). The giveaway team allowed me access to the admin panel so that I could edit my reviews because I was always posting them with spelling mistakes, typo's etc.

Don't like that you have to start the entire game over if you don't complete 1 task. Graphics not really clear.
Was also buggy on exit with error message.

Thanks White Rabbit-UK for your comments... I am always looking for new games to recommend to my senior friends and to people I know with disabilities for them to build brain power. These are great games for Stroke patients looking to improve cognitive function and still have fun playing a game. Looking forward to testing it out myself

Hi Skipjack, absolutely. I worked on a Stroke rehab unit during my training back in the late 90's. There's enough variety to keep people engaged as well. Short but sweet.

It was a commercial game originally released in 2008 and being given away via free game sites so that the developer and the distributor can earn more money via the advertising rather than actual sales because 12 years down the line, it makes more money by the developer allowing sites like TooMky Games and others to give it away rather than buy it, but its still a shareware commercial game not freeware. That said because of its age, it's unlikely you'll find it on the regular distributor sites like Big Fish, Alawar, Gamehouse etc.

FREE GAME, yes, but with Toomky adware if you install it from their site...

Game had some issues with Windows 10, first off, I had to install DirectPlay, which Windows was able to do rather simply. Next, I had a graphics issue in which the bottom of the window was cut off, and it didn't matter if it was windowed or fullscreen, and whether or not the taskbar was visible. That was simple to fix by going into properties, change high DPI settings, and checking the box after DPI settings to let the program do DPI for itself. (It's a box at the bottom). However, I don't like to play Jewel drop games, so after all that work, I decided to delete the game and that is where my review ends. By the way, I could not do anything with my mouse so there may be other issues I have not covered here. It does look rather ancient, but not ugly unless you think old games are ugly. It's very colorful.

Hi Jen, try reinstalling again. If the same error occurs immediately open the event viewer and check the event log. You should find more information about the error that may give a clue as the the issue.

From the information you have provided it would indicate a sound issue. Maybe update your audio drivers and see if that fixes the problem. you can find the appropriate sound drivers by opening up the Direct X diagnostics panel by typing DXdiag in the search bar and opening up the sound tabs. You should find the driver names there. You could also update your Direct X to the latest version (that may fix it without having to search for the driver).
