Bejeweled Blitz is the free version of Bejeweled, and only includes one game mode which will give you a taste of what the full game has to offer. Bejeweled Blitz 1.17 acts like a stand-alone app and lets you play as many times as you wish.
On the downside, the single mode available in the game lets you play each time for only 60 seconds, making it your main goal to beat your previous scores. Bejeweled Blitz does come equipped with a full variety of gems, including the ones with special abilities that will clear up large portions of the board. These come in 3 flavors and include Flame gems, Star gems and Hypercubes.
Bejeweled Blitz follows in the footsteps of the full game, and will delight you with similar high definition retina display graphics. The game features the same sparkly gems with remastered realistic sounds.
The leaderboards remain the social center of Bejeweled Blitz, and while many might end up there through pure luck, there are sure methods of reaching the top. Strategizing your every move is vital for obtaining a high score in Bejeweled Blitz. Each move you decide to make could cause long chain reactions, destroying tens of gems at a time.
It is true that Bejeweled Blitz does not offer as many features as the full game, but it was only designed to promote it. And if you decide that Blitz is the best game mode for you, be sure you don’t forget to think fast and strategically.
