    Wooga’s Diamond Dash Game

    Diamond Dash Game Diamond Dash is a social puzzle game by Wooga. Comparable to Bejeweled Blitz players have exactly 60 seconds to match three or more gemstones of the same color. The game begins with a giant square of colored gems. When a player finds an adjoined match they simply click on one of the blocks for the entire row to disappear. More squares will fall down from the top of the box as matches are found. The main objective of the game is to eliminate gems as fast as possible. Occasionally power-ups are dropped in the form of a flaming diamond. This is called the magic fire power-up. Clicking on it will automatically explode surrounding matches.

The musical tone slows down when a player is stumped. A tick tock effect starts when the timer is about to buzz. Playing with the sound eliminates the need to look up at the clock or meter to monitor progress. The faster you play the better the odds.
