Looking for a new puzzle game to check out on your Switch? Gems of War is available right now, and it's free.

Described as a "puzzle RPG hybrid game", Gems of War fuses those elements with strategy gameplay to offer a battle system where players have to match gems on a puzzle board. Matching the gems will power up spells which can turn the tide of battle, and you'll be building up a team of heroes and conquering mighty kingdoms along the way.

The game is set to bring new troops and events for players to enjoy with each passing week, with even more content planned for future updates. Clive Robert, Head of Publishing for Free-to-Play at 505 Games, has shared the following in a press release:
