Home > Blog > Gems of War – A Sneak Peek

Okay, our welcome message was heavy on the fluffy stuff, and light on the details. That doesn’t matter though, because Squeaker the Goblin and his crew, the Zaejin Special Acquisition Team, have managed to smuggle out some more information and post it on their news site, WikiSqueaks. For your convenience, it’s copied below:

1. We Have Heroes!

In Gems, you get to play as a hero in the world of Krystara. Your hero collects lots of stuff, including troops, weapons, and costumes, and gradually grows in power as you play the game. The hero can customize their gender, their look, their race, and their outfit, and will usually be the most powerful troop you control.

2. Heroes Collect Troops!

Heroes love nothing better than gathering up a few random strangers and charging off into battle… no wait, that’s an MMO! Our heroes actually collect these strangers… no wait, that just sounds creepy. Look, it’s simple… you collect troops and take them into battle with you., and each of these troops has their own unique spell that turns a match-3 puzzle game into tactical battle-to-the-death!

Troop Collection

Over 100 troops to collect!

3. We have LOTS of Kingdoms!

Krystara is made up of many kingdoms – each one with unique quests, troops, and challenges. When you unlock a new Kingdom, you get tons of stuff to do. How do you unlock a Kingdom? Gain some levels and save some gold. It’s as easy as that.


World of Krystara

Conquer the World!

4. You can PvP until your Eyes Fall Out!

Actually PvP won’t make your eyes fall out – not in Gems of War anyway – but you get our drift. There is a global PvP ranking system where you can battle all the way to rank 1. Being highly ranked in PvP each week will earn you Glory which can be spent on special rewards.

That’s it for our sneak peek. We hope that’s given you a taste of what’s in store!

    Noticed that the “Download on the App Store” is available but when clicked nothing shows up. When do you think it will be available on the Apple Store?

    Hi Niko,

    1. Price & In-App Purchases

    Gems of War is Free to Play. We sell a premium currency (Gems) that can be used primarily to get more troops, similar to how you would buy extra cards in Hearthstone.

    Everything you buy with Gems (except for cosmetic outfits for your Avatar) can be acquired by playing the game WITHOUT paying.

    2. Availability in the App Store

    At this time, we have only released in Australia & New Zealand (sorry you caught us on release day, and we haven’t posted about this yet!). We’re expecting the worldwide release to be in 1-2 months on Steam, iOS, and Android.

    If you ARE in Australia, and can’t see the game on the app store yet, it might still be in the process of being published. I know we’re definitely still waiting for some of the in-app purchases to come online.

      Nope not in Australia, so I will have to wait. Thank you for the info.

      Any chance of this going on the Nintendo 3DS in future as you had the previous Puzzle Quest games?
