Jewel Time Deluxe is a match-3 puzzle game that tasks users to swap jewels on a game grid and form matches of 3 or more of the same jewel. It offers players six game modes, including Gravity Twist and Isolation. Users can control and swap jewels by using the mouse button. The game starts with easy levels, but they get harder in higher levels. There are also obstacles and twists that users must get through in order to stay alive.
Jewel Time Deluxe has two modes of play. These are free play and timed mode. In free play, players get to play the game without time constraints. In timed mode, players must finish the level within a set amount of time in order to move on to the next level. There are power-ups that appear on the game screen as well. These power ups help users to move on to the next level, get bonuses, and make matches on the game board. On the game screen, the game board is located at the center of the window. The timer is represented by a bar, which is located at the right side of the window. The left side of the main window displays power ups that users have available.
