Jewels with Buddies Ads Free is a turn-by-turn based match-3 game. Through SMS or Facebook, you can challenge your friends to a jewel matching duel. The chat feature, that is a key feature in most of these multiplayer games, allows you to have casual conversation or obnoxiously heckle your opponent while playing.
The goal of the game is simple, earn as many points as possible matching gems in the allotted time period. Your opponent will then be sent a push notification that it is his/her turn and they will have to beat your score in that round. If they are taking too long to play their round, feel free to remind them of their turn using the game’s nudge feature.
This indeed is the typical match-3 game with jewels/gems, but expanding it to a multiplayer game definitely adds some interest to it. The app also features what they call “animal power-ups.” Each animal has a special power that allows you to gain multipliers and gain more points. You have a choice of which ones you want to use before you play, which adds some strategy to the game as well.
