Bejeweled

Bejeweled is another classic web puzzle game that I added here on suggestion of Mahesh. It is highly addictive! I used to play it on zylom.com till a few years ago. Luckily, I found a Flash version of it that could be embedded within a blog post.


Here's how you play Bejeweled


The objective of Bejeweled is to align at least 3 similar gems in a row, horizontally or vertically, so that they can be cleared off the board, and new ones cascade in from the top.

And how do we align them? By swapping a gem with another adjacent gem. Note that you can only swap gems that will result in a winning set of 3 or more gems of the same kind. The winning set will be blown off the board, scoring you points of course. And then the gems above them would drop down in their place.

You get bonus points for combo sets and cascades. Combos are when one swap results in more than one winning set. And cascades happen when, by clearing one winning set off the board, you end up aligning another winning set.

As you score points, the bar at the bottom of the screen starts to fill up. When the bar is completely full, you will progress on to the next level. When there are no possible moves on the screen, the game ends.

So enjoy playing Bejeweled...

Dhiman:
Try to get more than 3 gems in a row. You can even make a T (3 horizontal, & 3 vertical)... or a cross (+)! That way u get bonus points and the score increases faster.

Kaddu said...

Prithvi:
Almost 38 mins! Wow! Don't know abt the no of gems cleared, but I can't manage to stay on board even 10 mins! The timer bar starts moving to the left so fast! I did cross the 20K mark as far as points are concerned.
