Is It Any Good?

Apparently sequels are confusing, at least on the app store. Bejeweled, which replaces Bejeweled 2 on iTunes, actually incorporates three new modes from Bejeweled 3 on PC. Confused yet? The good news is that the classic match-3 gem swapping gameplay is as fun as it is simple, and the new modes and graphical upgrades breathe new life into the classic gem-swapping format. Besides Classic mode, there's also Diamond Mine (where players swap gems to break ground at the bottom of the screen before time runs out), and Zen, a relaxed mode that lets players choose soothing ambient sound effects, modulate their breathing with an on-screen guide, and display positive mantras like "I am strong and secure."

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
