Bejeweled is a puzzle game by PopCap Games, first developed 2001. A sequel to this game, Bejeweled 2, was released by PopCap Games in 2004. More than 25 million copies of Bejeweled have been sold, and the game has been downloaded more than 150 million times.
Initially it was created by PopCap Games as a web-based Flash game called Diamond Mine. The game was reportedly successful for PopCap - a company formed in 2000. PopCap created partnerships with well established Internet gaming sites such as Microsoft Zone to host bejewled as well. The name Bejeweled was suggested by Microsoft, who thought that the original name Diamond Mine was too similar to that of an existing game, Diamond Mines.
The objective of this game is to swap one
gem with an adjacent gem to form a horizontal or vertical chain of
three or more gems. Bonus points are given when more than three
identical gems are formed or forms two lines of identical gems in
one swap. Gems disappear when chains are formed and gems fall from
the top to fill in gaps. Sometimes chain reactions, called cascades,
are triggered, where chains are formed by the falling gems. Cascades
are awarded with bonus points. There are two variations of the game
to choose from.
