Read All Last week PopCap launched Bejeweled Stars which is their latest free-to-play mobile puzzler that takes everything we all love about match three games and brings it up a notch. Bejeweled is a classic game and this latest entry does it justice while realizing that other games like Candy Crush have dominated this space for quite some time. I was never a huge Candy Crush player, it just never really was something I enjoyed playing for very long but Bejeweled Stars seems to have a special something about it I really like.
If you despise the free-to-play mobile virtual currency pay to get power ups model this game won't be for you. There are a ton of ways they use to get you to buy virtual currency but none of it is needed to advance in the main game. Occasionally you lose a level and burn through lives and need to wait to continue, but I don't find that to be annoying.
Bejeweled Stars adds a few features to the traditional match three game that I found neat. Some levels feature butterfly blocks that when you don't match them out, flutter around the screen. This makes for some interesting gameplay as moving blocks can really help... or hurt your game. In some levels you need to match out a certain number of butterflies and other types of blocks making for some really fun scenarios.
If you are looking for a low-key free game on your phone I recommend you check out Bejeweled Stars. It's a fun puzzler that may not be the deepest game your going to play this year but sometimes we only have a few minutes and why not spend it matching blocks?
Currently I am at level 35 and i'd like to know what you think about the game and how far you've progressed so drop your thoughts in the comments. If you attach your game to your Facebook account and we are friends on Facebook hit me up in game, I am interested to see how the social part of Bejeweled Stars works.
