Published as part of our sister-site GamesIndustry.biz's widely-read weekly newsletter, the GamesIndustry.biz Editorial, is a weekly dissection of an issue weighing on the minds of the people at the top of the games business. It appears on Eurogamer after it goes out to GI.biz newsletter subscribers.
PopCap's brilliant match-three sequel Bejeweled 3 is heading to DS, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 later this year, the developer has announced.
Online leaderboards and multiplayer modes were left out of Bejeweled 3 due to "priorities and deadlines", developer PopCap has explained.
Offering criticism of a Bejeweled game is a bit like a medieval peasant giving you his opinions on the Bubonic plague; PopCap's match-three classic is ready to chew through human society regardless of what people have to say about it.
Bejeweled's a force of nature. It's simple, colourful and compulsive. Because of all that, it's easy to underplay how well it's put together. And it would be easy to ignore the fact that the series' latest instalment offers a quiet range of clever variations that bring new life to the game.
Building on Bejeweled is not an easy gig. PopCap's tried tinkering with the magical formula before and been gently slapped around for it. By anyone else's standards, the sales of the polished and rather clever Twist would probably have led to champagne celebrations amongst the cubicles. For this team, however, used to selling bucketloads of games every few seconds, it seems to have been a mild disappointment.
All downloadable PopCap games are half-price from the PopCap website until Monday, 29th November.
PopCap has announced that a third game in the Bejeweled series will launch on 7th December.
