After Trexels, Star Trek needed to jump straight on the next mobile gaming fad. Following on from the success of Candy Crush, Wrath of Gems is another Bejewelled clone that has some Star Trek flair stuck onto it.
You play by swapping the location of two gems in order to create matching groups of 3 or more. In basic Bejewelled gameplay, you’re doing this to get points, but Wrath of Gems adds a few spins on it. In ship combat, attack gems will let you shoot at your opponents with shields restoring health. You and your opponent take turns, so you have to be careful not to give your opponent a great move. Another type involves collecting combos of different types of gems, while another one is on ground missions where gems unlock your crew’s attacks.
There’s a TOS story and TNG story, and each settings has ships and crew to unlock and upgrade, using currency collected from various moves (or purchased). These can also be spent on lootboxes (which can also be purchased), giving you upgraded abilities.
The servers for this went down sometime in 2018 and as a result, it is not impossible to play the game, even if you have it installed.
