Ice Storm is a type of mini-quest featured in Quest.


Ice Storm Help

A dialog box providing information about the first Ice Storm mini-quest.

In the Ice Storm mini-quests, singlewide columns of ice extrude from the bottom of the game board toward the top. The goal of each mini-quest is to clear a specific number of gems and destroy the columns by matching gems over them. The types of matches have different effects on the rising ice; horizontal matches only push down columns, while vertical matches shatter them. Special Gem effects can lower and destroy ice columns as well.

Ice Storm Game Over

The game board, as it appears frozen over.

When an ice column reaches the top of the game board, a skull icon appears over the column and an "internal" column begins to rise. Pushing down or destroying the original ice column removes this secondary column. As an internal column approaches the top, various things that intensify the situation occur (a warning sound plays, the background darkens, etc.). When a secondary ice column reaches the top, the skull icon above the column turns red and enlarges. If the column is not pushed down or destroyed within a few seconds, the mini-quest ends in which the entire board freezes over.

During each Ice Storm mini-quest, Hypercubes fall into the game board every now and then.

  • Pausing the game during an Ice Storm mini-quest causes the gems to vanish, but they reappear upon resuming the game. This most likely happens to prevent "cheating."


  • This is the only mini-quest that progress bar does not show requirement for complete the quest.
    • Thus, instead shown "[gems cleared] of [total required gems]", the progress bar only shows total gems cleared so far.
  • Unlike secret mode version, the background in the mini-quest uses standard Background #6, rather than its Ice Storm exclusive variant.
  • An early screenshot of Bejeweled 3 shows that the Ice Storm mini-quests originally had double-wide ice columns. This makes the game easier.
