Bejeweled is an incredibly addictive puzzle
game developed by Astraware for Palm and Pocket PC (The PPC
version is called Diamond Mine). You basically move gemstones
to line them up with 3 or more together vertically or horizontally.
There are two modes in the game: Easy Mode and Time Mode.
This game is very easy to learn, and after you start, you
Playing Hint and Tips
At first, I played the Easy Mode
and scrutinized every move I made. My score was a sad 1200.
Then I tried the Time Mode where I didn't have time to
think at all. So I blurred my vision a little bit and all
I saw was the shapes and colors. I did much better that
way. So my tip of the day is, get familiar with the shapes,
directions and combinations that will get you the maximum
falling potential, and just keep on moving. When I went
back to Easy Mode, I was playing much longer games.
My highest score in Bejeweled so far is
120,239. I'm sure you Bejeweled addicts out there have much
higher scores. So why don't you drop
me a line and tell me your high score, and gloat? Or
if you have any magical tips, share them!!
