So you have one of those brand-new ultra-fancy new iPads, do you? Well, if you’re like me (and I hope for your sake you’re younger and better looking) then you know one thing has been missing: An iPad version of Bejeweled. Well, that tragedy has come to a close thanks to the arrival, just today, of Bejeweled HD for iPad, either available this very minute on the Apple App Store and iTunes, or soon, depending on where in the world you live.
This native application brings Bejeweled into the age of fancy HD graphics, thanks to the iPad’s retina display support. (And if “retina display” means nothing to you, we’ll translate: It’s super sharp and makes your eyeballs happy.) For a mere $3.99 (way cheaper than the PC/Mac version, kids!), you get four game modes (Classic, Butterflies, Diamond Mine and Zen), Game Center support, badges and achievements to collect, and the promise of more updates down the line with all new content and gameplay.
You’ve flung all the birds you can for now. You may even have killed your fair share of zombies. Now it’s time to get busy swapping those gems again, in glorious HD. You owe it to yourself to get obsessed again. Remember, 4 out of 5 doctors recommend video game obsession as a cure for many common illnesses and skin problems!
