Posted by on January 24th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Bejeweled Blitz has been around on the App Store for a while now, and in that time players have apparently been making numerous requests for Vaulted Gems. This feature, which was exclusive to the Facebook version for quite some time, will make rare and powerful gems available to really mix things up during a game. In addition, a new rare gems called the Ice Burrrst will also be attainable. Players will also no doubt be happy to know that this update also includes a new Items tab, which will allow them to browse and manage their grants, shares, and gem gifts more easily.

Favorite Four: Match-3 Games

The Match-3 genre is often quite maligned these days. Criticized for being repetitive and unoriginal, I’m out to prove that’s not the case. There are plenty of imaginative reinterpretations of the familiar genre, and here’s a look at four of the best.

Bejeweled
OK, so Bejeweled is pretty standard Match-3 fodder. It’s also the best purist interpretation out there, ensuring hours of fun for any jewel matching fan. There’s no storyline to follow or anything complex like that. Just a series of modes focused on matching similarly colored gems to each other. It’s pure, it’s simple and it’s a great time waster.

Scurvy Scallywags
Ably demonstrating the variety that Match-3 gaming can offer, Scurvy Scallywags combines pirates, the classic humor of Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert and, of course, Match-3 gameplay. It’s great fun and surprisingly deep, thanks to the ability to build new ships and explore side quests. Particular joy stems from the customization options available for those who want to create their own personalized pirate.

10000000
It might be a little difficult to remember how many zeros need to go in the title, but everything else about 10000000 is very memorable. It’s a dungeon crawling game that combines Match-3 style sensibilities to create a potently addictive title. Plenty of upgrades and objectives are available to keep one playing into the night, even if you started playing that morning.

Triple Town
Like precious little else out there in the Match-3 genre, Triple Town is an unique proposition. The player’s sole objective is to grow the biggest possible city, all via matching three or more game-pieces. Combine three pieces of grass and make a bush, with three bushes turning into a tree and so forth. It really is quite original stuff, and strangely addictive too. Who would have thought that matching a few tiles of the same shape could do so much?

It is hard to deny that Bejeweled has become the choice addiction for iOS gamers in a pinch.  When it comes to gem matching, the game is pretty much unparalleled, unless you count the hoards of other imitators on the marketplace.  But once again Popcap took a look at the competition and decided to raise their already exceedingly high bar of perfection.

Folks who have already purchased Bejeweled will be treated to a brand new update, adding in the shocking Lightning Mode that has been available in the console version of the game for quite some time.  The new gameplay mode plays very similarly to Bejeweled Blitz, with the ability to extend the round beyond a single minute through matching other like time boosting stones.

For those wanting to see what all of the excitement is about, the game is available for only $0.99 and $3.99 from the App Store.  Check out the new feature and let us know if it is worth the price of admission in the comments below.

Bejewled Blitz, PopCap’s incredibly popular timed variant of the classic match-three game Bejewled made its way from Facebook into the App Store late last year. The game broke iOS ground, being the first universal iteration of the archetypal puzzle and is integrated into the new Bejewled and Bejewled HD, which are similar to the PC/Mac game Bejewled 3. Now PopCap has given the iOS version a Facebook-style makeover that allows gamers to play without Facebook friends or linking their accounts.

This new “universal” mode in version 1.2 now has Game Center integration with worldwide leader boards. More importantly to fans, the iOS version now also has all the Facebook special perks like daily spins, rare gems, the ability to get multiple bonuses, and stats for as long as you keep playing. There will even be weekly tournaments against PopCap’s iconic characters as well as lots of in-app purchases in place of Facebook credits.

The Bejewled franchise has sold more than 50 million units so far, and this iOS fermium version should only help with what must already be an impressive bottom line.

If you don't have a Bejeweled-style game yet, Babo Crash is a good choice. The lack of additional modes and innovation keep it from being a must-have, but the fast tempo and new power-ups should please genre fans nevertheless.
