Only got to level 21, and the gems don't combine like the original game. I think the highest level Gem I saw (at level 21) was a third level. (eg 1: broken gem, 2: gem fragment, 3: gem shard). Targetting is still the same point-and-click that it used to be, which can be a blessing and a pain. I never did like the un-reality (in an RPG computer game lol) of being able to select a target, and then turn half-way around and still hit it. But, this style does make it a bit harder to stay on a single target..... Kind of a Monk thing : "It's a Blessing. And a Curse. And a Blessing. And a Curse"
