Match up the coloured jewels and collect all the mosaic pieces to be become king of Egypt

What is it with jewels and the Android platform? There are more jewel-based games than adorn Elizabeth Taylor at a wedding.
This means for another jewellery based jaunt to make an impact, it has to be something rather special. Luckily, Jewellust is a gem of a game.
The plot is threadbare: you are in Ancient Egypt and you have to blast your way through myriad jewels so that you can clear the pyramid out and go on to the next level/pyramid.
Yes, the plot is a load of tosh, but the gameplay is surprisingly addictive. Match three or more jewels in a row and the line disappears, touch one of the exploding bubbles and whole rows disappear.
But unlike most games of its type, there is an actual aim: to collect all the mosaic pieces at the bottom of the grid. Do this and you will progress on to bigger and better levels.
The touch controls can be a little shabby – this depends on how big your thumb is. But once you get into a rhythm, the game starts to eat away at your precious free time.
And once you become awesome, there’s the dreaded Survival mode. Great stuff.
