Bejeweled is known as one of the most addictive games on the Internet. Bejewled 2 is pretty much the same game with a couple new gameplay modes, and it's been ported to the iPhone. In each level there is a screen full of gems. By swapping the placement of two gems, you create chains of three or more of the same type, which disappear, give you points, and cause new gems to fall into the game field.

Control is simple. Want to swap two gems? Simply use your finger to swap their placement. Sometimes you end up touching the wrong gem, but the game reminds you of the rules instead of penalizing you. If you create a chain of four or more gems, you create a power gem. Use that in a chain, and the surrounding area blows up, giving you a huge point bonus.

The visuals do their job, and the animation in-between levels is quite impressive. The music isn't distracting, but the sound effects when you create a chain can get on your nerves. Aside from the normal mode, there is also a mode against the clock, and an endless mode, where having no possible moves left incurs no penalty.

Bejeweled 2 is kind of like Tetris in it's addictiveness. It's very simple to pick up and play, but there's something to the way that chains and power gems tap into that epicenter of wanting to play the game more. Buy at your own risk.
