There was once s discussion about the pervasiveness of smileys in daily communication between people. If you spend a lot of time instant messaging your friends, you may find that not a single day passes before you use a smiley in your communication. Now you can find smileys in your favorite kind of game. Smiley Puzzle is a free online jewel game, where you are supposed to form sets of 3 or more smileys in order to get then out of the game. Immediately, others will fall into place and if they also form a set of 3 or more, you will get a combo score. This is all too familiar, you may say. Think again; the game requires you to move a whole column of smileys, instead of the usual single item. You may foresee a combo at one corner of the game, but after playing for a while, you find that the set has disappeared altogether. This makes it very hard to come up with strategies for scoring big. However, the game comes in two modes, which allows you to play a few times and get to see how you can get new strategies. You can remove a set in any formation as long as they make 3 or more connected smileys of the same kind. The diagonal direction does not count, but any other shape will. You can even have five in adjacent rows or columns and they will be removed. Also bear in mind that the smileys are animated, and it will take you a while to get used to their different expressions. You may have a set, but one of them is wearing a different expression, and this may make you overlook the set. This is definitely a welcome change to the usual free online jewels game.
