Under rating threshold (show) I've been coming back here to play this game for 2 weeks straight so I could finally beat it. I have to say, it really drew me in... there's something really satisfying about continually upgrading my gems and I like how combining them can make potentially useful dual-colored gems. Once I completely beat this, I'll be sure to check out Chapter 0 next.

Under rating threshold (show) fun game.. but gem combination should be able to be done in the towers.. instead of putting the gem back in the slots and combining then putting back it to the tower

Under rating threshold (show) Fun game, 5/5 but you should be able to combine gems in towers, add something to distinguish level 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 gems from each other (like a number on the gem or something). Lastly, it definitely needs a level with either infinite, or a very high number of waves, so far I was only able to create a pure level 10 gem on 2 levels.

Under rating threshold (show) On the last boss, its important to have purple gems to decrease its armor. After that its easy to beat.

Under rating threshold (show) If you are having trouble defeating the first 'EPIC WAVE'. Go back and do some of the other levels again, until you have made it up to level 19, to help you level up you should call waves in early when doing levels as this gives you good points. When @ lvl 19, then max out the following: More initial mana, more mana replenish & lower mana costs, put the rest of your skills on more mana per kill. Like if this helps, thanks.

Under rating threshold (show) 1. Hidden levels appear after you get glowing scores on all surrounding levels. It is not one concrete glowing score that will unlock the hidden level. 2. Once you are far enough to have "Pure gem mastery" (level 37) it's a good idea to reset your points and max it up, along with Initial mana, Mana replenish, Lower mana costs and Mana per kill. The game stops being a challenge at that point, basically (well, at least if you don't send all waves at you at the same time). 3. I got the final boss at level 78, you can probably do better than that. Get your mana to 9000-10000 to be able to banish him at least once and pray for enough high level purple gems (I did with one lvl6 and one lvl 7) to get rid of most of his 120 armor level in the first round, so all your fire-power will wipe him out in the second. If all is lost, throw high level gem bombs at him.

Under rating threshold (show) One of my favourite things about Gemcraft: To increase you exp on a replay, you have to do the level BETTER than last time. So your skills are based on just that: your skills, not countless hours of grinding.

Under rating threshold (show) if you have trouble leveling up for the epic levels, try going back to other levels, then fighting every two waves at the same time (1 & 2, 3 & 4, 5 & 6, etc.) to do this, just click on the bars that show when the wave is going to arrive. rate + to keep this alive.

Under rating threshold (show) Note: Backup your saves. Always. I was at level 16 and removed my cookies, thinking that this didn't include my game files saved on the computer... stupid me, that's what a cookie IS. Anyways, check out the Backup Saves? forum discussion to learn how to protect your game.

Under rating threshold (show) It is hard to distinguish between lime gem and green gem. It is a waste of time pointing every 'green' gem.

Under rating threshold (show) This game is starting to show it's age after the dizzying heights of Chapter 0 and the great Labyrinth. The biggest slap in the face is the difficulty curve of the first boss battle. It's infuriatingly hard, especially when you compare it to the relative easiness of the rest of the game.

Under rating threshold (show) CaptainFactoid - replaying levels only adds the improvement to your total score. For example, if the first time you got 800,000 points and you replayed it and got 1,000,000 points, your total score would increase by 200,000

Under rating threshold (show) Did the first epic boss at level 16- just make sure you have at least one purple pentagon waiting at the beginning and 5000+ mana to withstand 1 hit from the boss. When he comes and goes past your first few towers, take your purple pents and station them at towers so its always hitting him. Second run should be enough to kill him, if not bomb him till his dead.

Under rating threshold (show) This is probably my favourite game on Kongregate yet. I absolutely love tower defense games, but they were all starting to blur together... until I tried this one. Instead of building specific towers and upgrading them, building gems that give your towers abilities, and being able to COMBINE said gems, adds a whole new layer of depth. Combine that with the skills you can gain for leveling up, and you have one of the most complete, layered tower defense games out there. If you're the type of person that enjoys TD games, but are tired of the exact same concept/gameplay being used, give GemCraft a shot. You will not be disappointed, I can guarantee you that!

Under rating threshold (show) To beat the final level, make a lot of towers and moats on top and a few towers on the bottom. Make sure you HAVE OVER THAN 7000 MANA for the final boss, you can't kill it in one pass. You need to lower its armor with the purple gem (once it gets out of range, move it to another tower) and then it will receive a lot more damage making it much easier to kill.

Under rating threshold (show) Here's a little trick. Get to the last wave of any level, leave one monster alive. Make sure you regenerate more mana than it takes to banish it according to how long it takes for it to run from start to end. (As in, if you regenerate 45 mana while the monster runs the whole way and it only costs 30, you're good) Use the mana you gain to upgrade your mana pool, create towers, bridges, as well as creating and combining gems and throwing gem bombs at nothing. When you've had your fill, kill the last monster. You should get plenty of amulets for lots of extra points. That trick is VERY slow, but could help out. I did this on level 2, got a gold battle amulet on everything, except kill x monsters in a row.

Under rating threshold (show) I hate commenting so many times, but there's no edit option, so... I recommend a Lime...well, really anything combo. Only Lime combo I found pointless was Purple, and if you have any status color + Lime, you're golden, especially grade 7 or higher.

Under rating threshold (show) Brennan1214. If you could continue to get experience from the same levels, the difficulty in this game would entirely vanish. That would make the game terrible. Also, when typing sentences in English you don't capitalize the first letter of every word. I really hope English is not your first language, because thats sad if it is.
