9Bejeweled is a puzzle game by PopCap Games, first developed for the browser in 2001. Then there were stand alone applications developed. Once the Facebook craze hit to users, it did not take long for Bejeweled to have a place in the Facebook universe. And this is what my new addiction is now.
The objective of this game is to swap one gem with an adjacent gem to form a horizontal or vertical chain of three or more gems. Bonus points are given when more than three identical gems are formed or forms two lines of identical gems in one swap. Gems disappear when chains are formed and gems fall from the top to fill in gaps. Sometimes chain reactions, called cascades, are triggered, where chains are formed by the falling gems. Cascades are awarded with bonus points. There are two variations of the game to choose from. Other features include a bomb gem if you match 4 of the same kind and an electric kind of gem if you get to match 5 wherein the next match with the electric gem will match all identical gems wherever they are on the board.
This may get boring after some time but what really gets me addicted is because of the high scores of my friends listed beside the game and my hubby keeps teasing me that stay up late just because my hands cannot get off the keyboard, he he he.
