Bejeweled Blitz was developed and published by PopCap Games, and it is originally a Facebook application. It soon expanded into a downloadable game, based on the then in-development Bejeweled 3 engine, due to the popularity of the differences from Bejeweled 2 and it's new graphics.
Gameplay. The gameplay is simple, it's about matching gems of the same kind and multipliers in order to get the highest possible score by one minute. By connecting with Facebook, players can compete against friends and family for the higher score on the leaderboards.
The main game screen is an 8 x 8 grid of gems. Players make lines of three by swapping gems with adjacent gems. When a match is made, the matched gems disappear and more gems fall into the board from above. Special gems can be created by making matches of 4 or more. Unlike the previous games in the series, Bejeweled Blitz allows the player to swap gems while gems from previous matches are still falling.
Bejeweled has also been into many game handhelds and downloadable on consoles such as Xbox Live and PlayStation Network.
Memories. I first played the Bejeweled game when I was 15 back in 2001, and the expert was my Kim Kardashian-wannabe of a sister. I competed for the higher score, but she always said: "Brother, you ain't gonna surpass me, ever". I played Bejeweled 2 also during my teens. Then in 2009, I competed for the top leaderboard against a girl who I liked back in high school. Her husband would defend her when I retorted her tauntings, BAD MOVE! She was over 235,000 points, and then one day, I broke her record by obtaining 262,450 points. I remember it as if it were yesterday.
Overall. This game gets a 9 out of 10.
