The latest coin from the mint at Zynga, yes, the same guys behind FarmVille. Unlike some other safe playing companies, they have taken courage to try something different from their old tricks and lets see if it has paid off.

This to not a completely unseen game, rather we have seen it plenty. Surely, Zynga has been inspired by Zookeeper DX (previous App of the Week) because Ruby Blast is close to a clone, expect for additional iA purchases and hunger for copper.

You are an archaeologist who just struck a treasure and have to dig out as much jewels as possible. The gameplay is the same ancient one where you make three or more together and tap to remove them. Get the gems of your will before time time runs out; don’t worry, occasional extra-time and bombs are here to help you. When the time is up, you are greeted with an option to continue, worth cash and you know where these cash come from. Additional points and rubies can also be purchased using the same. Though the gameplay is different, the money-making strategy remains unchanged from the Facebook virtual world. If you see huge scores at the Game Over screen, share your score on FB and brag to your friends.

To conclude, though a free game, the age-old concept and ad-filled interface push us to the No side. Free games like Zookeeper XD is obviously a better choice or if you can spend more, Bejeweled is a worthy one.

Quick Take


Would I Buy Again:No, better options are available

Learning Curve:Low

Who Is It For:Quick fix gamers and kids

What I Like:The animations

What I Don't Like:The gameplay and ads

Final Statement:Get Zookeeper DX instead!
