StarJeweled is a puzzle game where players match groups of jewels according to color and strategically select StarCraft II units to overcome opposing forces and destroy the enemy base. StarJeweled can be played in several ways, including cooperatively against A.I. or competitively against other players.
Each successful jewel combination in StarJeweled provides a burst of energy; the larger the jewel combo, the bigger the energy burst. This energy can be spent to train a variety of StarCraft II units including zealots, banshees, and ultralisks that will help you penetrate your opponent's defenses. You can also use energy to activate abilities that can heal friendly targets and do damage to enemy units. To deploy a unit or activate an ability, simply click on the corresponding icon located beneath the jewel board once you have the right amount of energy.
Since the goal of StarJeweled is to destroy your opponent's base while protecting your own, you'll want to choose which units you purchase carefully. StarJeweled is not only about matching jewels, after all, but also about managing your energy efficiently and understanding how the units in the game counter each other. If you're unfamiliar with all the units' strengths and weaknesses, that's okay; each unit's tooltip (activated by hovering over its icon) includes a list of what it's strong against and what it's weak against. Be sure to use these descriptions to use your advantage and pay attention to what units your opponent is selecting.
StarJeweled games last one round; a round ends when one player's or team's base is destroyed. Defeat your opponent and claim victory!
