Gems are the movable objects found in gameboard of Rainbowtail (Game).


Gems since the version 2.8.3

The gems appear in game.

As the Rainbowtail (Game) is based on/inspired by the match-3 puzzle game Bejeweled, the gems are typical objects can be matched in 3 or more and have the most important role rules a whole gameboard.

Each gem-matching requires 1 Move (if matched properly) and can deal one damage to adjacent obstacles, Enemies or Brick Golem. Gems also can clean Dark Sludges by matching gems inside of it.

If the gems are matched in special form, this will result in summon a Gemling. See this for more information.

After the player cleared a level, the Gemlings will gain gems(exps) to leveling themselves up until they hit to max. level(5), the amount of the gems can be increased by how many gems cleaned in that game. For example, a Grass Gemling will gain 50 gems if the player cleaned 50 green gems in total.
