The Game:
Jewels of the Nile is another take on the well worn Zuma/Luxor marble popping match three game. It has the usual elements, though the shooter is slightly different in that you cannot angle the shots from a fixed position, instead you move the scarab cannon around the periphery of three sides of the arena, (the bottom and sides); also there are 15 bonus types that drop randomly at any time and not when you score a match; (see image above for details of each bonus). They include color swap, lives, bombs, speed up and slow down, multipliers, stop and a black hole bonus to name a few of them; (that last one, which is not listed in the bonus list I've never seen in one of these games). The graphics are okay, looking a little like the first Luxor game that I first played fifteen years ago (Luxor was released in 2005 and was one of the first games I purchased following my accident that helped with pain management via distraction therapy). There's nothing much else of significance to say about Jewels of the Nile; (see my conclusion below).

Conclusion:
Jewels of the Nile is a standard marble popper with some slightly different mechanics and bonuses. Personally I found the game a little slow and the movement of the scarab cannon was at times a little frustrating, especially when trying to navigate the sides via the cannon/shooters track. This is because the movement of the scarab isn't intuitive as in when you get to the side rail you feel you have to move your mouse upwards, but this isn't how it works. You only use the X axis of the mouse (i.e. side to side movement only). I was constantly losing matches because I kept trying to move the scarab up the sides by moving the mouse in the Y Axis (i.e. up and down). Also, I found the random power up drops were so fast, unless I was directly beneath the power up when it spawned, I would miss catching them.; plus, it was very hard to distinguish one power up from the next due to the drop speed. At the most I'd score this 6 out of 10 for the game play.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank MyPlayCity for giving away Jewels of the Nile again and also to the game giveaway team, as always, for securing other ways to get free games.

Re: mouse movement. The needed mouse motion is *always* left to right - even when on the vertical sides. I'm surprised at how hard it is to adjust for that when on the sides - I keep on trying to go up and down with the mouse, which just makes it jumpy.

Sadly - this makes me tense up to much, and I look for games to be relaxing. I'll probably give it a few more tries - but I'm not sure how I'll succeed.

This is a nice game with some very surprising shooting angles ! :-) Thank you and have a nice weekend. Tomorrow a HOG maybe? ;-D

Add: the bonuses are really quick and are hard to see what kind of bonus it is. The shooting is slower than you would like. I still haven't got the right feel for the angles, but it will be a challenge to get better. It is a bit tricky however...

tiscrea © - The Netherlands, Same deal here. I like this genre & so far not bad as to basics like graphics, design, and play style. Like you gonna take a few plays to get hang of mouse work. At first not a fan of trying to slide up & down on sides not to mention the diagonal shots. The laser beam helps as well as chances to slow down the flow speed. Black ball explodes, helps. Maybe adjusting the size of video screen will help with the kinda erratic mouse movements others, like me, finding.
Anyway worth hanging onto for bit. Thanks GOTD.
