Bejeweled For iPod Reviewed
9:10 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Playlist magazine has posted a review of Bejeweled for iPod, one of the recently released games for the hand held multimedia device. Bejeweled is one of the more popular "match three" puzzle titles which awards points for the number of like colored jewels placed in a row. Playlist gave Bejeweled a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

Maneuvering across the board and switching the position of gems is simple—you use the click wheel’s scrolling action to quickly move yourself across the board, with a reticle around the gem showing your position. Touching the click wheel up, down, left, or right will switch the gem you’re currently on with the one in that position.

This gives you the freedom to make moves without a lot of frustrating clickwheel motions. And while it’s easy to overshoot your target or make positioning mistakes when you first start playing, you adapt very quickly. One thing I’ve noticed that’s pretty consistent with all the iPod games I’ve tried—thumb fatigue. My hand starts to ache by about the fifth or sixth level, which makes Bejeweled’s “exit and save” feature particularly handy—it gives me time to rest my thumb for the next go.
