Much more than just a 'Tetris'-clone, 'Bejeweled' is a great new take on the whole 'falling blocks' thing. Windows Entorphane (375)

Addictiveness is a very important factor for a hand-held game. After all, the proponents of safe play will make you believe that the purpose of a game on a hand-held computer is to "kill a minute" while waiting for a bus, while between meetings, or while waiting for a plane somewhere. Listen to me: that is utter BS. A *true* palmtop game should have you miss your bus, be late for your meeting, and be on the "last call for boarding" for your plane. It should have you miss your stop while on the subway, and should have you bumping into people when you're walking along the street, just because it is so addictive that you can't stop playing it.

Unlike in many line puzzle games, there's no clock, freeing you to strategize. Plotting the destruction of multiple rows at once earns more points. What looks like a 5-minute distraction easily turns into an hour or two of plotting.

So, all in all, Bejeweled is a stone that's been rubbed up to a pretty impressive sheen, making this mobile version ideal for those regular moments of boredom on the daily commute when you need a quick fix of gaming stimulation.

Aside from good ol' Solitaire, there are few games that you can say have as much universal appeal as Bejeweled. The game relies on a simple concept of lining up colored gems into rows or columns of three or more. It's an incredibly easy game to play, and offers enough challenge that even skilled players can enjoy spending hours racking up high scores. However, with Bejeweled 2 now available, there is little reason to go back to the original. Even so, this game stands to show just how simple a game can be and still be a blast to play.

Bejeweled is an entertaining diversion that has ensnared many, from hardcore Quake players to computer users so casual that their only previous computer game experience was Solitaire. While the retail incarnation is not without a flaw or two, it retains the addictive, almost infectious gameplay that has made it such a hit: it's the most popular online game around. It costs less than most other new releases on the game store shelves, and is particularly suitable for anyone seeking a quick, user-friendly title for themselves or as a present for a casual gamer, especially one without an internet connection. Just be aware that it is far more addictive than, say, Minesweeper for most who have tried it. I'm now over my initial enchantment with the title, but it gave me enough enjoyment to be worth its price tag.

Bejeweled is the classic among gem-matching puzzle games. Created by PopCap games in 2001 it presented itself in such an appealing form that it launched a wave of imitators and made PopCap one of the biggest names in casual gaming. Its simple colour-matching gameplay and bright colourful graphics have ensnared a generation of players. In its simplest form you can play the game in both the normal untimed mode and a faster-paced time trial mode.

Na závěr bych chtěl ještě jednou poznamenat, že i když je Bejeweled pouze trial verze, určitě zabaví na nějaký čas. Hudba a grafika jsou velmi pěkné, hratelnost výtečná. I myšlenka je popravdě řečeno neotřelá, a tak pokud zkousnete občasné obtěžování registrační tabulky, neváhejte a vyzkoušejte své logické schopnosti.
