What parents need to know

Ease of play

The tutorial's practically unnecessary, even for newbies. Choice of landscape or portrait mode is convenient. Having trouble spotting the next match? Switch on Auto-hint to pop up a discreet arrow after a few moments.

BEJEWELED 2, a slide-to-match game was made for a touchscreen. The gems glide smoothly into place and produce satisfying, realistic-sounding clinks. Further jazzing up this old favorite are dazzling special effects. For instance, Hyper Cubes, created by matching five or more gems, clear the board with a startlingly realistic bolt of lightning. Challenge a friend to a match-out with Bejeweled Blitz, the one-minute Facebook mode. Beautiful planetary backdrops round out this gem of an app.
