Bejeweled … I never thought this would be a game that I would play. I am the type of girl who likes video games like World of Warcraft, Halo, Gears of War, Bioshock and all of those fun games. However, I remembered that I liked the Tetris games and especially liked Tetris Attack, which was on the Super Nintendo. Therefore, I decided that I would start playing Bejeweled Blitz on Facebook and that is when it all started. I tried a demo of Bejeweled 3 and ended up buying that one. I actually just purchased Bejeweled Twist today along with Mortal Combat, which is on Xbox 360 as an early Birthday present, but have not gotten the chance to play them yet. I love getting high scores and beating my friends and husband on Facebook, but I also love playing it by myself. So, right now, I am going to give you 7 tips on playing Bejeweled …
Surely, if you play Bejeweled, you know what a multiplier is, right? The multiplier is the key. Multipliers are created when you get rid of twelve or more jewels with one move. Make as many multipliers as you can on the screen, then get them to explode. If you have a power gym next to it, then explode that.
In Bejeweled Blitz, you are able to move gems before the game even starts. So, get ready and start moving before the announcer says “Go.” This is definitely something that you need to take advantage of.
5. Be Patient
When you are playing this game, you definitely need to be patient. You need to try your best to group colors together. If you do this, you will be more likely to create a power gem.
Did you know that some individuals actually do better when they have the sound turned off? I don’t understand this one, but it’s true. I guess it’s for concentration? As for me, I do better with the sound turned up with this game. So, try both and see which one helps you the most.
3. Power Gem
Whenever you have a power gem, blow that sucker up. Do not save it unless you know you will be able to use it soon. You know, if you could have it blow up in a cascade.
Hypercubes are great to get. These zap all color you choose. Make sure you use the hypercubes on the color that appears the most on the board.
1. The Computer
If you are experiencing lag, then that is because your computer is no fast enough. You will need to have a computer that has enough memory and if you are playing online, a good Internet connection. Make sure you close any other programs that you may have open at the time.
