Facebook game: Bejeweled Blitz review

This article is a review of the Facebook game: Bejeweled Blitz. Read to know how to play this game, highlights of Bejeweled Blitz, tips to play Bejeweled Blitz and features of Bejeweled Blitz on Facebook.

Pros: Nice addictive game with nice visuals in default screen
Cons: Music not ideal for a game that requires such a concentration and more over the audio is a bit shrill. Not any change from Facebook game.

Bejeweled Blitz is a game designed by PopCap and like it's all other games a lot of thinking has gone into the designing of this game too. Its Facebook version is a 60 minute match-3 gameplay where you have to arrange gems and multipliers in vertical and horizontal to obtain highest score. Any three similar gems in a row or column vanish creating a cascading effect where gems from above fall and fill in the vacant places in a 8X8 grid size.

The game is very popular on Facebook and had more than 25 million players last I saw. As a improvement from previous Bejeweled series now you can swap gems even while they are falling, so now you have faster gameplay which will keep your fingers busy the whole 60 seconds.

The game has some coin gems which when matched with other yellow gems add to your in-game virtual coins. These coins can be used for game boosts like score multipliers, mystery gems, additional time, a detonator and scrambler to reorder gem locations.

I found it better to switch of the audio during the gameplay to concentrate for those 6 minutes and the audio speaking in between when you increase 25,000 points sounds a little creepy. As the board is not too big and you need to move fast it is better not to play in full screen, this way you can concentrate better. The block is surrounded by information and "invite your friends" option. You will always find the 60 minute game play too small and might go a bit on the addictive side.
