Summary:

Bejeweled Blitz packages PopCap's hit "match-three" puzzle game with fresh features for high-end PC players and "casual" social gamers alike. The display can be adjusted, from a convenient window in the corner of the monitor to full-screen at high-definition resolutions. The game's audio output is similarly customizable. Online, players on Facebook can connect and play with friends, and the game offers complete offline modes as well. As in other versions of the often-imitated Internet game sensation, Bejeweled is played on a large grid filled with differently colored gems. Players can swap the positions of any two adjacent gems on the grid. When three or more gems of the same color are lined up, they disappear from the game board, awarding points to the player and allowing new gems to fall into the empty spaces from above.

The best thing about Bejeweled Blitz on the PC is it allows players to play with friends, this can be, in fact is very challenging, player against player trying for the highest scores, or who got to use the extra powers more effectively. Some threads on the social network are dedicated to discussing how to play with the game. Anyone on Facebook who claims to have never been tempted at least once with playing this game is not telling the truth.

Click on the icon and it opens. There are some players who ruin their mouse simply because they can’t get over their addiction. The glittering jewels are so alluring that anyone playing and gets distracted gets shouted at. Can’t you see I’m playing here! is the usual line. Forgive the players. Anyone who has never been diagnosed with OCD will definitely get positively diagnosed after only a few minutes into the game. It is that addictive.

Now, this game is free but it can be bought as well for around $15.00 for the PC. I don’t bother to pay really but for those who do prefer paying, they get more out of the game. Not only is the image clearer, but there are more sounds, more fun, basically, more of everything on the PC release. So, if you enjoyed it on Facebook, then you will simply be blown away about the option to select high definition visuals in the options.

Now, some critics would say that the game has no plot, no challenge, no feel or stealth. Huh? Yes, definitely there is no plot, but if they justify the blood and guts sprayed on the screen as plot then I guess there is no plot. It is a simple game that managed to overcome its simplicity. It is a point, click and destroy game without seeing any destruction. It needs a clear eye and a quick mind to get the best scores in one game. It takes a bit of quick imagination to think ahead, to press on the right jewel so the ones remaining line up and disappears; getting more points in the process. It does not take an idiot to play this game, but it takes an intelligent mind to make it really work to the optimum. No challenge? Huh?

PopCap has definitely got a sure-fire winner in the Bejeweled Blitz. It has bored players online sucked into the void of challenge and fun, for free and for a price. Those who do decide to buy the full version are likely to say they never regretted it. I enjoy my game on Facebook but the updated PC version has far superior graphics which only adds to the appeal.
