Before you were addicted to Candy Crush and before a gazillion other “connect similar-looking objects” games were made, there was only Bejeweled. It’s one of the best games on iPhone and Android and now, Bejeweled Blitz has had a big update that introduces new gems, a high-res version for tablets and some more features.
Developer Popcap Games (the guys behind the awesome Plants vs. Zombies 2) has rolled out what it claims is the most requested feature, Vaulted Gems. “Vaulted Gems have unique effects on the game board, pack a punch, and are only available for a limited time!” AppAdvice says, quoting the press release.
The update introduces the rare Ice Burrrst gem, which Popcap describes as a “wintery delight”. This is the highest scoring gem available for mobile users, as it detonates large sections of the board.
Popcap has also debuted the new Items Box to manage your rare gems on mobile—a feature that was previously only available on Facebook. Any new rare gems you earn will automatically be deposited into this Items Box.
Finally, the update also supports HD 720p resolution to let you enjoy the game on devices with higher resolution.
