Each platform seems to have its signature gaming genres. The Wii has its mini-sports games, the DS has RPGs, the PSP likes a good fighting game and the Xbox 360 is well known for its FPS. The mobile, however, is easily spotted for its gem encrusted games catalogue.
And we mean that quite literally. We’ve already taken a look at 100% Gems, but there are so many mobile jewel swapping titles out there we’ve kept mining for those precious stones and dug up another 10 to lavish upon your already shiny mobile.
One or two games are noticeably missing from the line up, but there are certain ‘bejeweled’ games that get a mention almost every week, so we’ve tried to look deep into the crystal ball for our new selection.
We need to be careful, too, because if we run a third 100% Gems features, there’s a distinct possibility they’ll align themselves during a search and disappear, so make this one count.
