Going back to FB, this game is open for everyone to play with. The best thing is, different Friends can challenge one another on who gets the highest scores or who got to use the extra powers effectively. Some threads on the social network are dedicated to discussing how to play with the game. Anyone on FB 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 cant get over their addiction. The glittering jewels are so alluring that anyone playing and gets distracted gets shouted at. Cant you see Im 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 for free but it can be bought as well for around $15.00. I dont bother to pay really but for those who do prefer paying, they get more out of the game, which is excellent. Not only is the image clearer, but there are more sounds, more fun, basically, more of everything. So if you enjoyed it on Facebook, think how much better can a great game be if it were played at its best presentation? Incredible.
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 gives bored players online get 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 must agree with them. I enjoy my game on FB too much and I can imagine how much better it can be.
