Bejeweled Classic is a puzzle game that challenges to match colorful gems. Create matches of three or more gems of the same color by swapping adjacent gems.
The game board consists of a grid filled with different colored gems, such as diamonds, rubies, and emeralds. Players can swap adjacent gems horizontally or vertically to create matches of three or more gems of the same color.
When removing the stones that need to be removed, new gems fall from above to fill the gaps. This can create a chain reaction that makes the match always full of gems. Some new gems falling from above will automatically be eliminated when encountering gems of the same type, they will continue to drop until the screen is full of gems.
Bejeweled introduces special gems that can be created by making matches of four or more gems. These special gems, such as the Flame Gem or the Star Gem, have unique abilities when matched and can lead to more substantial point bonuses or clear multiple gems at once.
In certain versions of Bejeweled, power-ups and boosts may be available to assist players during the game. These can include tools that help reveal matches, shuffle the board, or provide special abilities to clear gems.
The game has a time limit or a specific goal to be achieved in a certain number of moves. These goals can include reaching a target score, clearing specific gems, or achieving certain goals.
