Hi Fishies,

I just wanted to add to the OP: This thread has been reserved for reviews only.

If you have any questions about someone else’s review (even if you feel that their review contains incorrect details about this game) please contact that user directly via PM instead of replying to or quoting their post as this can develop into a discussion that is not suitable to the review thread.

While the reviews in this thread are first and foremost helpful to other players, they also tell us and all who were involved in making this game, what you liked/disliked most, what you’d like to see more/less of in future games, etc. This can only help us in continuing to provide better games, which is what we all want!

We want to ensure that everyone who visits this thread can easily find the reviews that they’re looking for, so the Moderation Team will be proactively removing any off-topic posts (i.e. non-reviews) that pop up in this thread.

For any non-review related posts, please feel free to create a "Comments" thread in this Game Forum if there isn't one already. You can always create a new thread for any game questions or tips.

Thank you!

Similar to the "Burger Shop" series, this entry substitutes fast food for jewelry. The presentation and characters are colorful, though the game offers little innovation. However, I was challenged by the fast competitions.

A solid entry in the "Youda Games" series, but I'm eagerly awaiting their much delayed "Youda Mayor".

I played all but 21 minutes of the trial and have decided it is a definite buy for me. Besides liking TM games, I like the fast pace of this one. It reminds me of Burger Shop, which I like and still play. The music is cute, and the story and characters and endearing. I like that they allow you to choose which jewelry you are going to add to the conveyor belt. There are little mini games that give you helpful upgrades when you complete them. It is a fun, cute game, which I have been wanting. It's nice to see something light in a sea of dark, gloomy games.

I wasn't sure about this game at first, because my first love are cooking/diner TMs and this is a clone of Burger Shop, but you are making jewellery, which I found a bit odd to start with.

However, it's a lot of brightly coloured, funny and fun stuff. As in the Burger Shop games, you get to play with a lot of machines. There are mini games and achievements.

If you liked the first two BS games and don't mind making jewellery instead of burgers, then I think you'll love this.

I think this would be an excellent quencher for those of us waiting for Burger Shop 3...except there is no right click delivery feature to make things more fluid...when you finish an item and right click while holding it...it goes directly to the first person who asked for it.

For those of us used to playing Burger Shop this is very very frustrating because otherwise they are so similar. It was a dealbreaker for me really. And yes, it probably isn't fair. I only played a few levels.

I do like Youda though. Usually very unique gameplay. My fav Youda game is Youda Camper. AND I think there was a red cross game with a disaster theme. That was fun too.

I finished the trial and purchased. Actually it's really not like Burger Shop as much as you might think. Yes, the conveyor belt is similar but the game play is quite different and very challenging.

I'm stuck on the race right now on level 12 so I'm hoping to either figure it out how to get gold on both races or wait for a nice fishie to tell me. You can't move forward unless you get gold on those levels.

I do like TM games, and have both Burger Shop games. Like Burger Shop, this game gets too complicated. The items are very small. There is no left click to deliver items.
I cannot keep up with what gems go in which machines.
Instead of making diamonds, I end up with ice cubes.

I have to say pass. I like this game, and I might have bought it, but it is way too complicated.

after the demo this is my thoughts:

-cute and colorful graphics and theme

-lots of variety in the items you're making as well as little side challenges that are a nice touch

-would have liked a way to release items a bit faster than the hold down your left mouse button method

-music is fairly annoying after a while

-decent TM game

all that being said i won't be buying it. this game is really nice for people who like this style of TM. i however find it getting more and more hectic which = less and less fun for how i prefer to play TM games. i can't seem to find a rhythm to get into so i just feel hurried and out of step, and like i'm missing something most of the time. i recommend playing the whole trial hour to everyone as i did have lots of fun at first and thought maybe, but after a bit i just felt too rushed. it's not a bad game tho and i'm sure lots of you will enjoy it.

best wishes and happy gaming!

This is a fun game and at times pretty difficult.

I would have liked to have seen the hold down release go a little faster and also, I'm not too sure why the old man sits at the entrance to the conveyor belt.

A buy for me!

A definite no buy for me as the pieces are too small and sometimes too similar to tell the difference.

Loved the game...I really liked that i had to play some levels several times to get the diamond heart. I definitely give it 5 stars!

I really don't like this type of TM game but gave it a chance. I played about 40 minutes of the trial and didn't like it. Give me bins of parts and machines to use, but putting things together out of a chain of chaos is not entertaining to me. This is one of those games where I end up saying "This is nuts!" while I'm playing. I expect better from Youda.

seeing a lot of references to Burger Shop series... that's exactly what i told the folks at youda when i tested it!

i love the bright colorful scenes, map, and characters... that maestro really caught me off guard the first time he popped up... and the "serve-me-first" lady i just wanted to send packing! in the end, the pace just picked up way too fast for me and i couldn't manage to keep up with it... especially trying to do the levels in the dark!

i like sparklies and i like the format, but i wasn't all that sure about purchasing... i really like the farmer series and, to tell the truth, that's more my style so i think i will be sticking with that for the meantime... maybe make some sushi

happy gaming!

Yes, this is a fun game... a little tricky as well on some levels. As others have said, it is similar to Burger Shop, and like others, I would love to see a Burger Shop 3 created, with different foods, characters, etc. In the meantime, this jewelry game is a hoot! A purchase from me, indeed.

A fun game, crazy addictive but ridiculously hard on some levels, easy on others. Controls are a bit clunky and I'm not overly fond of the left button hold function. I liked the style of the game and it was nice to see a good TM game that wasn't food-related for once.
