This will be a walkthrough guide for the iOS and Android game Gemcrafter: Puzzle Journey. It’s a work in progress, so please bear with me. Feel free to ask for help in the comments section until the walkthrough’s complete.

Note: I’ve so far gotten through the first two worlds without using any power-ups or IAP. If you need help on a specific level, ask and I’ll do what I can. But sometimes luck is just not on your side and you need to keep trying.

Note: I now got keys for levels through 75 without using any power-ups other than a lasso for level 72. Level 72 seems impossible to do without any help.

See my Gemcrafter review here.



You can watch this video I made for levels 1 – 15 of the first area, Valley:

    Hi, can you help with level 51? 🙁 thank you!!!

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Ahh that’s a tough one. I beat it but didn’t get a key. I’m not sure if it’s doable without any power-ups.

      1. Lala

        I’ve completed all levels and gotten all keys except 143,146 and 149 completed those as well but no key…starting to think they r impossible to beat

    2. AppUnwrapper

      I’ve tried another 10 times now. I get close, but not close enough. I only got two keys between levels 51-60. I think they’re just too hard without power-ups.

      1. Sobrina

        Thank u soooooo much!!!

    3. alana

      Did anyone get through Level 80? I am stuck…

      1. AppUnwrapper

        I did, but a lot of the game depends on luck. And occasionally you do need to use a power-up or you may be stuck indefinitely.

  2. Katie

    I am truly stumped by level 32. I either run out of space, or moves before losing the challenge. Any tips?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      I’ll see if I can beat it again and get video.

  3. ann

    I’m completely stuck on level 50. I’m able to beat it but I can’t get the key. Can you help

    1. AppUnwrapper

      That was a tough one, but I’ll see what I can do.

    2. Stephanie

      Ugh, me too! I’ve actually made the 10,000 but not in the alloted moves…so no key. Good luck! Ima bout to pull my hair out.

      1. AppUnwrapper

        When I did get it, it took a *lot* of tries. So I’m not sure I can get it again. In the third world, I’m on lvl 67 and only got like 2 keys. :/

      2. AppUnwrapper

        Got it. Uploading video soon. Hopefully it’ll help you.

  4. luke

    I’m stuck on lvl 50 have been for ages I can’t get the key

    1. AppUnwrapper

      I made a video of that level. Maybe it can help you?

  5. Ann

    Stuck on level 55. I can beat it but not in the number of moves to get the key!

    1. AppUnwrapper

      I didn’t get the key for that level, either. 🙁

    2. AppUnwrapper

      Actually, I just got that one. Maybe I can do it again.

  6. Ann

    Stuck on 66 now. I can finish it but not within the number of moves for the challenge.

    1. AppUnwrapper

      It gets harder and harder, to the point that often you just need to get lucky with the random gems.

      1. Ann

        I don’t think you can beat 66 without power ups.

  7. Sob

    Stuck at level 96 🙁

  8. Sobrina

    Managed to get thru it by using the technicolor power up. 🙂

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Ha I did the same thing. Sad that there doesn’t seem to be a way to get past without cheating on some levels. 🙁

      1. Andrew Ooi

        Yeah, indeed. Stuck for few days already. Still cannot find the way to win it. Even level 97 too.

        1. AppUnwrapper

          I beat all levels, but did use power-ups on a few. Didn’t get the key for 83, 85 or 99.

  9. Ann

    Stuck on 73….ugh. didn’t get keys on some of the chest before that area either. This game makes me want to throw my phone across the

  10. Ann

    Any help on 77 or 80 yet?

  11. Anne

    Stuck on level 98 and I’m out of lassos. There doesn’t seem to be any way to get past it without using several of the very scarce power ups. Any advice for me?

  12. Macla

    Help with lvl 80 please!

  13. Gemcrafter

    Fyi for those of you who are stuck all you need to do to get special tools is go to those levels offering special tools get the items…dont play the level, then exit the game. When you reopen the game you will then have that tool in your inventory. The tools are found right after the treasure chest. iE level 6 gives you the pick axe. Level 11 gives you the lasso. Level 16 gives you the rainbow diamond etc etc.. this also works to keep from running out of lives. Just exit the game…reopen and you still have a life to continue. Fyi i beat all levels and got all keys except for ly geeky on lev 143. There’s no way…even with lots of tools to get that key which makes the replay ability of this game a zero for me. Good luck!

  14. Gemcrafter

    Btw i play this game in airplane mode so no wifi connection. If for some reason you don’t get the free lives or tools…change your settings to no wifi.

  15. Katrina

    I need help with level 61. I can’t get the key for it. You have a video posted that says level 61, but it’s actually for level 64. Can anyone please help me?

  16. Filipe Nogueira

    Hello everyone,
    So i’ve reached lvl 150 finished the game, got all keys except lvl 143. Didnt used any money and only used power ups after levels 100’s. Lvl 143 is possible to finish with luck but never without key. Keep that in mind and good luck. Manage well power ups 😉

    1. Geoffrey

      How did you manage to get the key in lvl 149? The 10 moves limit is a real pain in the *ss.
      For lvl 143 you have got to concentrate on making the highest combination possible whilst removing the lavastones, those are a real buzzkill. Good luck

      1. AJ

        Did you figure this out? I’ve beat all the other levels without tools but level 149 I can’t seem to beat even with them

  17. Wrighty

    I did Lvl 143 and got the key. I needed to use the multi colour get otherwise it was impossible. Happy to share more info if anyone is still stuck.

  18. Green frog

    I’ve found another solution for level 143:
    You need at least three Lasso’s and pergaps one or two pickaxe’s. .
    In the upper field change the purple gems in one!!!! So you have three red gems in the upper field. Let them stay there.
    Now you place the fire gems in the last row on the left side of the yellow’s, but with one empty field between. Above the empty field you place two of the red gem’s. You need the lasso’s for that.
    Next you see two fire gems on the left, two yellow gem’s on the right and two red above the empty field. If it is not empty, use a spickaxe and clear the field.
    Now take the last red gem from the upper field and place it on the empty field. So the gems change und you will get nearly 27000 points. Enough to get the special gem into the chest.
    I know, you also need a little luck.

    1. Filipe Nogueira

      Seems a good solution however that shows the company that created gemcraft, MADE a level that is only doable with tools. You just showed its impossible to do in a clean way, while all other lvls can be done with luck and persistance. The game should ALWAYS have a solution to each level even it takes 999x tries. Lvl 143 shows it cannot without lassos and pickaxes. That sucks to be honest

      1. Pete

        No, it is doable without tools. Please read my comment below regarding the strange thing that happened to me, when levels changed mid-game. This level was previously level 144, with blue gems instead of purple in the bottom right. With the particular setup, I had not managed to get the key, after approx. 200 tries, but that does not mean it was impossible. When the level changed, it became #143 and had purple gems instead of blue gems. Then, I managed to complete it without power ups fairly quickly…

  19. kelly

  20. Alice

  21. Beth

    Any help on level 116? I can’t seem to get the key on that level. Have gotten keys on all others up throuth 122.

  22. Cherry Wong

    Please I need help on level 80

  23. comfortablydumb

    I need help on level 150. There are only 10 movies and I cannot get through 🙁

  24. João Gonçalves

    I’m in the 150 level but I can not get the key. Can anyone help?

  25. Lorena

    No he podido pasar el nivel 150. llevo 2 semanas tratando y nada.

  26. Pete

    All keys for levels up to 149 are possible to win without using any power-up. I have done this two times, all that is needed is patience and some luck on some levels.
    Now to the strange parts:
    1) The only time I have obtained the key for level 150 was when by some glitch, my first 5-6 moves did not reduce the move counter. If that does not happen, I believe level 150 key is impossible to obtain. Even if you only use power-ups, 10 moves are way to few to get the key. Has anyone managed it?
    2) While playing the game, the levels changed (I have not updated the app, and I have even tried to restore with titanium backup my old backups, but the levels still remain changed). Particularly: Previous level 144 was moved to position 143, and in the bottom-right section, instead of three blue gems, now there are three purple gems. That is a favorable change, because with three blue gems there, the level seemed impossible (I had never gotten the key for it). Once it changed, I was able to complete it. The strange thing is that I was trying to get the key for the “blue gems” level 144, when the level change happened. Afterwards, it appeared that I had won the key for this level (because it was re-mapped to place 143, level that I had previously completed, but with a completely different setup). Has anybody else noticed something like that?

    1. Pete

      I have managed to restore my game in the status of different levels I described above (level 143 has blue gems instead of purple, and level 150 gives you 35 moves instead of 10). There are other differences as well, many levels seem re-arranged in order and perhaps with different setups.
      So I am back at the state where level 143 seems impossible without power-ups (or at least extremely hard), but level 150 is doable.

      The only thing I did to achieve that was set my date to a past one (february 04 2015), disabled internet and re-installed the application. I have screenshots of the changed levels. Strange huh?
