Skill #1: The Roundabout (Master Difficulty: Intermediate)
One of the most common trouble that players encounter are "locked" gems. Here is a demonstration of what it means - let's just say I want to use dark and water gems at the same time. But looking at the below situation, the water gem on the bottom left is "locked" by the dark gems.
The reason why this skill is named Roundabout is because you are making one circular motion to align the dark gems, while at the same time "freed" up the water gems. Starting with the water gem on the bottom left, you move in order: up, left, down, right, and back up as shown.

There's a reason why I purposely make this guide guys! Start practicing this type of skill and combo it up!
