Bejeweled Deluxe is the game that turned the match-3 genre famous , spawning a number of sequels and clones .
It's a solid and relaxing puzzle game and a must for anyone that enjoys puzzle games .
However it should be noted that the sequels are far superior , whit better graphics and more gameplay modes .
Final score : 6 / 10 ( OK )

My game crashes - Steam is useless in providing an answer - or a refund to my account. I am having the same problem with Zuma Deluxe as well, regardless of what Windows OS I use (XP, Vista, 7, 8.1, 10)

This version is my least favorite, and I feel like the other two are good enough that this version can be skipped. Would probably never play it again. The other versions are so much better. Especially #3.

Doubtless adictive in its day but far to simplistic to grab the attention for long now. If you want this sort of match 3 game then try Puzzle Quest or Puzzle Kingdoms. Same sort of game but with story, powerups and, well, gameplay.

In the game, I cannot open the game in fullscreen just like the game Mummy Maze Deluxe and Seven Seas Deluxe.


My school has this game and this does work in fullscreen on the same OS and Computer, AND MINE DOESN'T!

Its either that Steam or PopCap fix this game.

P.S: I just wasted £4.25 on this game and doesn't work.

It might not be the first match-3, but this is definitely the game that started a massive craze. It's pretty easy to see why, right? It's GOOD at what it does. Unfortunately, it hasn't really held up to the test of time and competition. Want engaging gameplay? Try Puzzle Quest. Want addictive, fast gameplay? Try Candy Crush Saga. Want your friends to look at you a little funny when you boot up a game at 3am? Try HuniePop. Hell, if you want Bejeweled, snag Bejeweled 3. Just pass this up if it's not on sale.

Kari's pro tip: Try setting up the largest combo you can. It isn't really necessary, but it gives a bit of a challenge to work towards in what is otherwise only a basic match-3 system.

You don't have to make bad micro-payments to keep playing like some shady casual fb games (coughCandycough). Take from that what you will in terms of being worth the price. If you want more recent versions of it, this is an older version that isn't as graphically enhanced. The introduction voice is kinda annoying in this too, but it's not a game-breaking thing.
5/10 for mediocrity and age vs newer versions.

Just your standard Bejeweled game.
Swap shapes to match 3 or more in a row and score points/multipliers.

Graphics are pretty basic and the music is ear piercing.
Not a big fan of these games.

Bejeweled is a classic game that never stops making you come back for more. Each Bejeweled is practically the same and delivers the same amount of fun in each. The goal of the game is to switch around a certain amount of jewels to put together a series of 3 or more in a line to make that line or set disappear. The graphics are perfect for the game. The sounds in the game can feel repetitive at times. The overall gameplay of the game is awesome and really burns some time for when you have time to spare. There are endless stages it feels like. Each level of the bejeweled series has its own tricks and treats for you to enjoy. I highly recommend playing these and getting any of these great Bejeweled games when you have a chance. I love playing them and these are highly recommended for anyone working in the office or at home. I love this series and i know you will too!!

Never has a pattern matching game been so satisfying. From the smooth action of the pieces to the chunky sound effects when you make connections, this is a game it's easy to spend hours on. Or, just ten minutes when you want something to play. Not every game has to be a 60-hour epic. Whilst a lot of casual games are trite and only out to rob you via microtransactions, Bejeweled keeps it simple.

There have been many sequels, variants and additions to the series and in fact you don't seem to be able to buy the original direct from PopCap any more. I don't know why; the first is just fine as it is. Why try and improve upon it? It's like trying to improve upon Tetris. Sure, some are enjoyable and you can heap on the fancy graphics and gameplay twists, but it's the core idea which makes it work, not the frills.

I just wish it had a Linux port, that's all...

I don't think I need to tell anything about Bejeweled anymore you don't already know. You match 3 or more of the same colours/jewels as fast as possible untill the time is up. Every time you match the jewels time will be added.

I recommend this game for what it is, it's an addictive puzzle game but I would not recommend it buying on Steam since it's probably still free on Flash websites and if not there are countless of copies.

One of those games practically designed for the casual gamer, Bejeweled and all of its partner games are a fun and easy romp through a colorful matching game. Partnered with simple yet pleasant sound effects and music, this game is easy on all of the senses, and satisfying for those who don't seek an much more than that. Both the Normal and TimeTrial modes have their advantages, and add just enough to this game for it to feel complete. Seeing sister games like StarJeweled (In StarCraft II) is a wonderful experience as well!
If you are looking for challenge, this is not the game for you, but if you want something to keep you busy for a while and to help sharpen your eyes, you might have just found the right game.

It's a fun game, for what it is...I can't give a classic like Bejeweled a negative review. That being said, Bejeweled 2 Deluxe is FAR superior to this older version (Bejeweled 2 Deluxe has more gameplay modes, better graphics, etc.). Not that there is anything wrong with this version, but since the newer versions are so much better you'd basically be wasting your money buying this one. I guess if you wanted it for nostalgic reasons or you REALLY dig 800x600 resolution you could buy this...otherwise, stick to the newer versions of Bejeweled. This one is simply obsolete. Still, it's a great game for its time.
