Ah, PopCap. You do like to surprise us, don’t you? It’s hardly the biggest news ever that Bejeweled 3 is coming but the fact that it’ll be released next month is a bit of a shock. Yep, you’ll be able to get more fun out of matching three gems very soon, on the 7th of December.
So, one of the most addictive puzzle games ever is getting another sequel, what makes this one worth your cash? Well, first of all it’s going to have a visual overhaul, along with expanded versions of Bejeweled 2’s game modes. There’s now even more variety with gems and power-ups and the gameplay is refined to make it a lot more smooth, an example of this being that you are able to make multiple matches whilst gems are falling.
How about those new modes, then? There’s now a Quest mode with 40 puzzles, a new Zen mode if you want to relax with a personalised soundtrack, a Lightning mode if you like your Bejeweled frantic and explosive and then there’s four brand new modes that PopCap have teased us with; two of these are named Butterflies and Ice Storm. Very, very interesting…
And finally, there’s the new Badge reward system, which we can assume will be an achievement system within the game. It all sounds very interesting, and the fifth entry in the Bejeweled series is sure to be the best yet. I’m sure that we’ll all be addicted all over again when it releases on PC next month!
Now, where’s my Peggle 2 and Plants Vs. Zombies 2?
