Popcap Games
I’m a BB-holic, a Bejeweled Blitz-holic. I couldn’t stop playing the game over winter break until I finally set a resolution to break free. I played one day in the first week of January and haven’t touched it since.

Well, Popcap Games — the company behind the addiction — has released a Bejeweled Blitz for Windows. You don’t have to be on Facebook to play it. You don’t have to be connected to the Internet to play it.

The Windows version offers:

  • Full screen play.
  • Ability to play without an Internet connection.
  • More control over your screen size.
  • More audio sound and effects.
  • One million coins for “Blitz Boosts,” power ups and score-stimulating effects (must buy the game from Popcap to get the coins and use with Facebook Connect).
  • 48 achievement badges to earn.
  • Connect Facebook from the game’s main menu and play the game from the PC without having to open a Web browser. The game will publish high scores and star medals to your Facebook page when logged in Facebook.

You can download a free trial of Bejeweled Blitz, or buy the game.

    I used to play Bejeweled all the time on break at work, during lunch or during slow times. It is incredibly addictive. Maybe it’s about time I had me a game just for old time sake. 🙂

    Davina, oh my gosh! I just played the PC version and it’s awesome, bedazzling, all that! BB was a lifesaver when things got rough after husband got laid off.
