Bejeweled

Game Description: Play the classic Match 3 game of Bejeweled.

How to Play Bejeweled:

  • Make points by swapping adjacent gems to create a hortizontal or vertical line of 3 or more like-colored gems in a row. For instance, you can make a line of 3 red gems in a row, 3 blue gems, and so forth.
  • To swap two gems you may either use a dragging motion, or click each gem individually.
  • The two gems you swap must be right next to each other either hortizontally, or vertically (but not diagonally).
  • If the two gems you attempt to swap result in a match of 3 or more like-colored gems, those gems will be destroyed and the gems above will fall down and take their respective places.
  • If the two gems you attempt to swap do not result in a match of 3 or more, you have attempted to make an invalid move. You will hear a sound effect, and you must try a different swap.
  • Combos and cascades award extra points.
  • The gem meter is at the bottom.
  • Fill the gem meter all the way to the right for a bonus, (and to get to the next level!)
  • Bejeweled has two different games you can play: 'Simple' and 'Timed'. (In my opinion the 'Timed' game is, by far, the better game).

How to Play 'Simple' Bejeweled:
  • In 'Simple' Bejeweled, the gem meter starts at the left as each level begins.
  • Each time you make a match the meter moves toward the right.
  • If you are able to move the meter all the way to the right, you earn a bonus, and you go on to the next level.
  • The game ends when you run out of moves.

How to Play 'Timed' Bejeweled:
  • In 'Timed' Bejeweled, the gem meter starts at approximately the midway point as each level begins.
  • The gem meter can move both right and left.
  • Each time you make a match the meter moves toward the right.
  • When you do not make a match for a few seconds the meter starts moving toward the left.
  • As you progress up the levels, the meter will start moving faster and faster toward the left. So, you will need to start making matches at a quicker pace.
  • Your goal is to fill the meter all the way to the right by making enough matches quick enough. If you do, you earn a bonus, and you go on to the next level.
  • When the meter gets close to the left you will hear a groaning sound telling you that you are in danger.
  • If the meter gets all the way to the left... it's game over!
  • If you run out of moves in 'Timed' Bejeweled, you will not be penalized. Bejeweled will tell you there are no more moves available and will automatically reset the board. Then, just keep playing.

Bejeweled Game Options:
  • Press your spacebar to pause the game. (Or, you may also press the 'Upgrade' button which does nothing other than pause the game). Click 'Play' to resume.
  • The game sounds may be turned on or off by clicking the microphone icon located at the left, just above the 'Upgrade' button.

Bejeweled Playing Tips:
  • Try to make combos ( a single move that results in two matches at the exact point of the swap), or cascades (a move that results in additional matches by getting other matching gems to fall down into place). Not only do combos and cascades give you big points, they also help you fill up the gem meter very quickly. (This is probably not that important with 'Simple' Bejeweled, but it certainly is with 'Timed' Bejeweled where time is the crucial factor). If you are a beginning Match 3 player it may be kind of difficult to recognize moves that will result in combos or cascades. But, as you gain experience, you will begin to easily recognize these types of moves.
  • Watch for hints. When you get stuck for a while Bejeweled will powerup the 'Hint' button (the large gold circle at the left) and show you a move with a sparkling effect. (This happens automatically, so there is never a reason to click on the 'Hint' button itself. In fact, clicking on the 'Hint' button is simply a waste of time. Like I said, this happens automatically).

Richard's Rating: 5 out of 5.

Pro: There is a reason why Bejeweled is a classic Match 3 game: the sights, the sounds, the excitement. Need I say more?

Con: None.
