Bejeweled. The best game for the bored. I’ll admit that I have wasted countless hours playing this game on my computer, so when I saw Bejeweled in the App Store, I knew that it would be great on my iPhone. Any Bejeweled lover will love this iPhone rendition that features several interesting modes.

Bejeweled features four different modes packed into one great app. For the old-school players there is Bejeweled Classic. For those of you who have never played Bejeweled, you must switch jewels that are adjacent to each other to match three, four, or five of a kind. You advance through the levels by making a certain number of matches.

Diamond Mine mode is an interesting new mode available in the app. In this mode, part of the game area is covered with dirt. In the dirt, there are special items like gold, gems, and artifacts. In order to advance to the next level, you must clear the gems past the white line. In order to collect the special items, you must make a match next to the dirt. This new mode was an interesting addition to the Bejeweled line up and is sure to please the puzzle lovers.

If you want to relax, check out Zen mode. You can still advance through different levels, but there are some interesting customizations available to help you relax. You can change the ambient sounds to things like Ocean Surf, Crickets, and Rain Leaves. You can choose a mantra such as positive thinking, prosperity, or quit bad habits to help you focus. Last but not least, there is a setting called Breathing Modulation. Turning this setting on creates the sound of someone breathing that is supposed to help maintain your rate of breathing and help you relax.

Finally, there is Blitz mode. Although the mode is accessible through the main menu, it will only launch if you have the optional, free app called Bejeweled Blitz.

Bejeweled for iOS is a great version of the computer game. It adds three exciting modes along with the classic mode to please any gamer. At $0.99, it is definitely worth its cost. Check it out today!

Read the Developer's Notes:
It’s all new and all awesome!

If you love Bejeweled 2, this is the game you’ve been waiting for.

Based on the smash hit Bejeweled 3, the all-new Bejeweled is packed with three sparkling game modes: Classic, Zen and action-packed Diamond Mine. The world’s #1 puzzle game has been re-imagined for iOS, and it’s only the beginning — there are more surprises to come!

The new Bejeweled isn't an automatic or required update for Bejeweled 2, so don't worry — even though we're retiring Bejeweled 2 from the App Store, you can keep playing it for as long as you like. But once you play the new game, you'll never look back.

And if you play Blitz mode, check out the all-new Bejeweled Blitz, too! The new standalone Bejeweled Blitz offers seamless Facebook gameplay experience, gorgeous retina display graphics, and The Daily Spin bonus for free coins every day! Best of all, it’s FREE!

We hope you love the all-new Bejeweled. Please be sure to rate the game below or tell us what you think in our forums at Your feedback is important to us at PopCap!
