Description

A comet has crashed into a serene land of magic and alchemy. It's impact has crystallized it and spread fragments of it across the magical kingdom. Where ever these crystallized shards are they slowly squelch all surrounding life. The supreme wizard discovers that the only way to destroy the crystals is to match the with certain "magical figures". For those who don't know "magical figures" are made in Russia and normally marketed as Tetris blocks. The supreme wizard has his minions make him a trove of these pieces and sets out with them to save the realm.

In classic mode you have to destroy all the crystals from the arena using the magical tokens that appear at the bottom of the screen. You can rotate these shapes by clicking on them. When all the crystals are gone the level will end and a new one will scroll on. After each level you’ll be presented with a score sheet showing how many figures you used and how quickly you cleared the level. You lose a life if the shapes that appear at the bottom fill the whole of the area. Some tools exist to help with stray pieces, unusable magical tokens stuck on screen can be destroyed with a hammer, and your wand will remove a single crystal from the area. Each can be used only ten times. Some crystals sparkle even more than their multifaceted comrades, these will explode when cleared and take out surrounding crystals. Surrounding the crystals in many levels are coins which when clicked on will add to your score. When the screen is scrolling to the next level you’ll have more opportunities to pick up coins.

In jewel mode you’ll be trying to fill the screen with your token while destroying crystals. Once this is accomplished you’ll progress to a new grid of crystals. Such convenient things as exploding crystals have been removed making this mode more difficult.
