Reviews:

Adventure Gamer by Ray Ivey, October 15, 1999

"...The game consists of visiting twenty-four rooms, each which contains a beautifully designed and frequently deviously difficult puzzle. Except for the final, 25th puzzle, the gameplay is completely non-linear. The site consists of three levels (eight puzzles on each), and each level is a bit more difficult than the last."

"How are the puzzles? Well, to put it simply, they’re simply wonderful. I didn’t even care that some of them are souped-up retreads of puzzles from the first game. In fact, I was thrilled to see a return of the strategic movement puzzle in which you move a little bug around to carefully clear a board of dozens of little balls. I loved this puzzle in Jewels; I liked this more difficult version even more."

"Just like the last game, you have the choice of solving the puzzles on Easy or Hard mode, and (again, happily) you can make this choice on the fly, between puzzles – as opposed to having to make one choice for the entire game."

"This time around there’s also a built-in hint feature, in the guise of the professor’s "journal." Very helpful when you’re tired of pulling your hair out in fistfuls."
