Genies & Gems is a new match-three game for the iOS and Android platforms. Your goal in this game is to match gems in order to help the genie get her fox from one end of the level to the next, as well as to clear a host of other obstacles, and make it to the next level intact. You can use Facebook to compare scores with your friends, as well. Read on for some tips and tricks for Genies and Gems!
Your goal is to match three here, but match more than three at a time and you will get a special piece. A match of four will give you a line-clearing piece. A match of five at an angle (such as an L or a T) will give you a bomb price. A match of five in a row will give you a rainbow piece, which will clear all of one color. A match of 2×2 will give you a butterfly, which will auto-clear a piece that you need to clear in order to beat the level.
Look for opportunities to get these combinations as often as you can, and look for opportunities to mix them together when you have two of them next to each other on the board, as well. Like in Candy Crush, mixing them together creates huge effects. For example, merging the butterfly piece with the rainbow piece turns all of the pieces of that color into butterflies, then they all target wherever you need to hit to clear the level.
If you run out of lives in the game, connect to Facebook and ask your friends for lives. Best to ask people that you know already play Candy Crush and other match three games, or if you don’t want to bug your friends or don’t have a main FB account, start a games-centric FB account and add people who play the game. You can find their info in the comment section here as well as in the reviews area of the App Store or Google Play stores, or on Facebook pages for the game.
Another way to get free lives is to set the time ahead by half an hour per life that you want to auto-restore. Once you do, go back to the game and all of your lives will be restored. Once you do that, then you can go back to the date and time settings, and set the time back to normal. Your extra lives will still be there.
Save your power-ups for extremely tough levels. Don’t use them as soon as you get into a small bit of trouble, or you will wish you still had them when you come to a far more difficult level. You can buy more using gold, and you can get free gold with the Faceook connection in the game.
