The "new" Bejeweled Blitz

The "new" Bejeweled Blitz

PopCap Games have been making some adjustments to their Bejeweled offerings on AppStore. The old trusted Bejeweled 2 + Blitz has been removed (you can still play it if you've got it), and replaced with Bejeweled (based on Bejeweled 3 with three modes - classic, zen and diamond mine) and the free and micro-transaction based Bejeweled Blitz.

Blitz is a favourite game mode of mine - use crazy multipliers to get the highest possible score in 60 seconds - and the free app is essentially the same version of the game as it was previously. Some tweaks have been made, and for some reason I can't reach stats through the app (maybe it's kept on Facebook or something?!?).

As far as the new Bejeweled goes, I'm not that much into Diamond Mine anymore, even if it is a well crafted game mode. Hopefully, PopCap will bring out some other modes from Bejeweled 3 to AppStore down the line. I'd love to see Lightning for instance.
