Jewel Quest Solitaire III is a combination of a puzzle game and classic card game of solitaire wherein players must stack cards in order. The game was first released in 2009. In the game, players get to visit different locations, such as Peru, Egypt, and Cambodia. The player’s goal is to collect artifacts from these locations. In order to do this, players must complete a puzzle game or a solitaire game. The puzzles that need to be completed get harder as the player progresses through the game. Players get points for stacking cards on top of one another. These points can then be used later on to get wildcards that can help the player beat the game. The wildcards available include the following:
• X-Ray – This power up allows users to see the number and suite of a card that is facing downwards.
• Wild Cards – Using this wildcard enables the player to replace any of the cards on the layout.
• Shuffle – The shuffle power-up allows the user to shuffle the deck of cards anytime during the game.
• Unbury – This allows users to clear cards that are double buried or buried.
When playing the game, players must create a strategy that will allow them to complete the game with as little moves as possible.
