you will need to destroy the gems by forming lines of 3 or more gems

In this game there will be a grid of gems and you will need to destroy the gems by forming lines of 3 or more gems. You can rotate 4 gems in the clockwise or counter clockwise direction so that some gems will be lined up and then they will be destroyed. When a certain number of gems are destroyed, you can advnace to the next level, but if you fail to do so before the time limit, then you lose the game. Click the gems to rotate them, and click the arrow buttons or press the spacebar to switch the direction of rotation.Gems Twist is a free flash game offered by Novel Games. It is basically a classic match-3 puzzle, where the objective is to get a high score by destroying gems and preventing them from filling the gameboard. To destroy gems we have to create horizontal or vertical lines with at least three gems of the same color.

Usually, the match-3 mechanics allows us to move single gems or objects separately to create lines, but this game works in a slightly different way. Here, gems are arranged in groups of 4, and we need to rotate them until one of them finds a matching line. This 'square' can be rotated clockwise or counter clockwise; we can change this feature at any moment during the game. This particular feature makes the game a bit more difficult than the traditional gameplay, since finding matches requires more than just clicking and moving items. Instead we have to observe the grid more carefully and rotate the gems in the most convenient way, and all this within a certain time limit. Every level requires a specific score, so once we manage to achieve it, we pass to the next level. Although simple, the game is quite entertaining, and effective for a moment of leisure.
