So you're probably wondering why I have so many hours spent playing Bejeweled.

Wait, that's not right.

The secret really is Bejeweled is love Bejeweled is life.

♥♥♥♥ wrong again.

Bejeweled before hoes!

No, that's not it either.

Doesn't matter, point is this is really good.

Bejeweled 3 is probably one of the best Match 3 games available on Steam, or if not, then it's definitely the most complex one. It features various game styles, thus satisfying different gamer personalities.

If you like to be under pressure, then there's the Lightning Mode, in which you have a timer that you can be increased by quickly match some special time gems. Diamond mine provides a similar tension: there's a timer too, but in this mode you dig in the stone and sand by matching 3 - 5 gems in order to uncover treasures. However the most stressful game mode is probably Ice Storm - in which you have to fight the climbing columns of ice that quickly threaten to cover the entire board; to prevent this you need to have quick reflexes and a very good perception of the available matches. In order to beat this game mode, I had to switch to mouse and keyboard controls (mouseovering the tile selects it and WASD moves it in the corresponding direction).

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=446286039

On the contrary, for those that like a more relaxed approach, there's the Zen mode - the classic Match 3 in which you can enable/disable different relaxing background effects and positive affirmations. Another relaxed mode, but more suitable for those that have an analytical mind or love to strategically solve a puzzle, is the Butterfly mode, in which some of the gems are transformed into butterflies that automatically move one tile up whenever another match is made; having one of them reach the top of the board ends the game. This implies that you have to plan ahead your moves and optimize the matches so that they contain as many butterflies as possible.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=446286100

I found Poker mode to be the least attractive of all these modes - you are required to build certain poker hands by having consecutive matches of the same colors. It's a game of chance, since your poker hands highly depend on the randomness of the current tiles.

Lastly, there's the Quest mode that contains 40 variations of all these described above: finding a certain number of treasures or freeing a certain number of butterflies, or ticking bombs that need to be matched before the timer wears off etc.

The game adapts itself to the game mode you're playing. For example, in Diamond Mine or Ice Storm mode the game will provide you with suitable gems to create matches or 4 or 5 which result in special gems that help clearing up the board faster. In Poker mode you’re more likely to have gems of the same color grouped together, thus facilitating the process of obtaining good poker hands.

All-in-all, this is a good Match 3 game, if you enjoy the style. But it's quite addictive, so it will probably keep you entertained for hours. Even more so, going for 100% achievements requires a lot of time of grinding.

Just start this game up and any female in your house will be drawn to your PC. But seriously, probably the best match-3 game on Steam.

The Tragedy of Bejeweled

I got this with the Origin humble bundle. I decided to play it to waste some time waiting for another game to download. This wizard-sorcerer-magedom destroyed 5 hours in a row of my life.

Sit and listen to my tale, for it may save you from eternal damnation.

The premise of the quest seemed innocent enough, "Thou shall combine th' jewels of same purpose and they shalt bequeath onto you the path forward." Each combination of the arcane jewels would expel a wondrous light that would melt any icy cavern, cut through the webs of a spider ridden forest, or sweep away entire dunes of the driest desert. However, unbeknownst to I, there was one fatal drawback. The lights, the explosions, the lightning ... I-I couldn't stop. These cubes--they called for me.

That's when it happened. Two cubes next to each other.

I didn't know what to do. My mind argued with itself thinking, "I can't, I shouldn't, I musn't ... I have to."

My soul couldn't comprehend what happened next.

A silhouette of a man stepped out. My eyes, vexed by the colors, attempted to inspect him further. He was short, but intimidating. I remained paralyzed--awestruck--mind racing for an explanation. He paused and revealed a large grin on his face. With a single swipe of his tiny hand everything and its existence around us turned into a bright energy. The divine light displaced electricity in an ear deafening crackle of explosions. His mighty voice, as if emanating from the ground itself boomed "spectacular."

~~

I sit here now, a vessel of an unknown man, petrified by the curse known as Bejeweled. Time is non-existent outside the confines of it's own dimension. Be wary, those who journey the path of the Jewel. Heed my tale as warning, traveler. This pied piper may claim you akin.

Oh yeah, did I mention the music is FTL-esque and pretty cool?

Bejeweled 3 is a Puzzle game.

We have a lot of puzzle games on steam.
Only I find Bejeweled still one of the best games out there.
Game features geweldigde relaxing music.
Beautiful backgrounds and beautiful moving visual effects.
Very addictive and fun to play for a long time.

It is intended to slide stones and so as to make at least a row of three.
If you have 4 makes you obtain this special stone for extra bonus points.
And you get it done to get there 5 merge even bigger bonus.

What makes better part 3 of the other parts?
This game gives you many options like classic, zen, lightning, quest and 4 other options.
In short, very extensive and there is much to do in the game.
And certainly an improvement over the older games.

Unfortunately, there is no option for multiplayer only online high score.
Hope they can add this once.

It's fun, it's addictive I give it a 9/10 score.

This game is a puzzle game type where you must match 3 or 4 or even 5 gems together to blow them up.

Game is specified by "special game combinations" where you connect 3 gems of a kind they will just blow up. When you connect 4 gems together game will create a "fire" gem that blow up all gems around after you use this "fire" gem in another 3-4-5 gem combination. You can also combine 5 gems in "L" style ... after that game creates an "row-line" destroying gem. Which destroys all gems in row and line. You can also combine 5 gems of a kind in one row ... than system creates a "cube" gem which can "destroy" all gems on field of the same kind (only red, only green, ...).

There is also a lot of game styles of the same game ... like "dont get stuck", "beat the time", "time trial", "endless mode", "frozen" and many more.

+ game type
+ a lot of different game styles
++ gem combinations combos (4/5L/5 row)
+++ addicting

This has always been a fun time waster, no matter the platform. A more comprehensive version from the much loved Bejeweled Express, Bejeweled 3, allows you to play in various modes, earn achievements, and more. Not worth breaking the bank to get, but if it is on sale and you enjoy time wasters, this might be the game for you.

the game is nicely made , it has a nice soundtracks and 8 modes ( 4 secret modes included )
it has also a leaderboard menu where you can see your friend's score and compete with them to reach the rank 1 or something
its simply a time killing and fun game , like those facebook games and stuff
there is nothing to worry about in this game once you buy it , its worth the price

10/10

Simple but addictive
This game is for everyone

I usually don't play casual games. I love my singleplayer RPGs, competitive FPSs and Contra like run 'n' guns.
But most of all, i love good and fun games.

This is what Bejeweled 3 is: A fun game.

I don't know what to say about this game...there's 6-7 different gamemodes which is more than enough content for such a game.
I love the music! It's beautiful, relaxing and just suits this kind of game. Seriously, the music keeps me hooked!
Game looks beautiful and isn't too hard nor too easy. It's relaxing. It's the kind of game you play when you just want to lay back and chill.
You can just hop in and do a quick 5 minute match and then quit the game again. You can't do this in most games because you either need to reach another checkpoint or you just couldn't get s**t done in 5 minutes.

Be warned tho, the game is very addictive. I thought that my last session was like 15-25 minutes long but turns out that i played this simple game for 1.5h straight.

I remember playing Bejeweled when it was a pop-up window in the browser, years ago, having to view the ads to play for free.
When I saw this on Steam it was pretty much an impulse buy. One of the best games in my inventory.

This game is great if you want something quick to jump in and out of.

The different modes cover almost every personality/gaming type out there.

There is a Zen format which has no timer and you can totally zone out on. There's also the Diamond Mine experience if you're more of the OCD, hurry up, explosion type of person.

A very enthusiastic Thumbs up from me, this game is well worth the cost vs enjoyment factor.

For the price you'd be silly not to get it yourself.

Really nice game. Mostly a time killer, but a good one. Some of the puzzles are timed, others are not. Worth the price, especially if it is on sale.

The best Bejeweled game ever. The music is soothing, the graphics are amazing for a Bejeweled game and the modes will keep you playing for hours. I have put hundreds of hours into this game off steam and decided it was time to get it on steam just for the achievements. For 5 dollars you really can't go wrong with this game, you are getting your money's worth. Why are you still reading this when you could be playing it? :P

Hello
You get exactly what you want by buying this game.

You can spend dozens of hours sliding those gems in the right order just to get that one "Star-Gem" or whatever you want. Once you get to like this game you will never delete it from your library. At one point I had only this game in my library.
