PopCap Games has released a Windows Phone 7 version of its insanely popular Bejeweled puzzle series, Bejeweled Live.
In typical Bejeweled style, you have to move, swap and match different jewels to make them vanish. Once three or more are lined up, points are scored and a new batch of colour comes down from the top of the screen. It’s frantic, good old-fashioned puzzle gaming.
To compliment the new platform, there are a few tasty additions for Windows Phone 7 gamers to enjoy. For one, the ‘live’ aspect means you can keep making moves when gems are falling, and Xbox Live integration means a maximum of 200 gamerscore points can be earned if you complete any of the 20 achievements.
You can even compete on global leaderboards for Bejeweled supremacy, if you have any competitive urges.
Factor in Classic, Action and Endless modes, each designed to offer a different pace to the game, touch-based controls and vivid graphics, and you should be thoroughly addicted to its charms in no time.
Andrew Stein, Director of Mobile Business Development at PopCap Games said, “What sets Bejeweled LIVE apart – aside from the LIVE functionality – is the polish. Bejeweled LIVE has an evolved look and feel: from the stunning artwork to smoothness, and speed, of gameplay.
“We at PopCap believe that for many gamers on the go, Bejeweled LIVE will be the most exciting iteration of the world’s most popular puzzle game to date,” he added.
Bejeweled Live is available now on the Windows Phone 7 marketplace, and costs £3.99. A limited-time trial version is also available.
