Danger! Danger!

According to Astraware, a new version of the extremely addictive game “Bejeweled” is due for release in December.

Dubbed Bejeweled 2, the feature set is rumored to include:

  • Explosive new pieces: Power Gems, Hyper Cubes and Time Bombs
  • Stunning special effects
  • Awe-inspiring planetary backdrops
  • Four ways to play: Classic, Action, Puzzle and Endless
  • Five secret game play modes to unlock
  • Explore a galaxy of hand-crafted brain-teasers in Puzzle mode
  • Play for eternity and collect jewelry in relaxing Endless mode
  • Enhanced sound effects and epic soundtrack

Going by how addictive the original game is, I should simply chalk off December and assume no work will get done at all.

When I was at Lycos, I heavily reworked an online Java clone of that game that had originally been written by Istemi. (not that she hadn’t done an excellent job, but it needed upgrading and she was working on other things.)
The work was slowed a bit by how addictive the game is. 🙂
btw, the preview page shows the previewed comment etc. as black-on-very-dark-grey, not setting records for readability.
