Just over 10 years after the original Bejeweled was released, Popcap has announced Bejeweled 3. It will be available later this year on December 7. Some of the new features include collecting up to 65 badges, hi-res graphics, ultra smooth action and new gems. There will be 4 game modes to choose from. Chances are that the gameplay won’t be too different but if you ask me that’s a good thing. How do you fix something that isn’t broken? Bejeweled is one of my favorite game series and I can’t wait to see what Popcap has in store for us.

The original Doom which was released way back in 1994, showed me that computers can be valid machines to play video games on. Someone has created the game using Flash and it’s now playable on NewGrounds. The music isn’t all there but the graphics are just as I remembered in all their low-res goodness. You will need to download Flash Player 10 if you haven’t already done so. Enjoy Flash Doom!
PopCap Games released Bejeweled Twist last Monday, a game four years in the making. The twist is that instead of swapping two gems you now rotate four in a clockwise motion in order to get three of the same color in a row and cancel them out. I haven’t had a chance to download and play it yet but the graphics and music look and sound even better than the first. Hopefully we see a OSX and App store version soon.

I was looking online to see if there was a free version of Crazy Taxi somewhere out there and came across Crazy Shuttle. It’s a Crazy Taxi rip-off where you go around picking up pedestrians and running over others as you try to get them to their destinition in the fastest time possible and it’s fun! What makes it different than Crazy taxi is instead of a 3D world to drive around you can only go drive left and right while swerving up and down. Yes, that’s a freshly hit Cody from Final Fight laying on the ground. Anyone know who the girl is?
Play the game @ Newgrounds.
I’m guilty of playing Tetris on Game Boy for hours straight. In fact I’d play it so much that I’d see falling blocks in my dreams at night. A while ago, an Interactive Designer named Neave created a falling blocks game called N-Blox which plays similar to Tetris and is just as addicting. Be sure to check Neave’s other games and just browse around the awesome, newly redesigned site, Neave.com.
Popcap has announced that the new vesion of Bejeweled, Bejeweled Twist will be unveiled on October 27th. No one knows what the new twist will be but if it’s anything like Bejeweled 1 or 2 it will be addicting as hell.
