by Reads (11,911)

In an event that is probably as close as the handheld world is going to get to the debut of Halo 2, Astraware is now offering Bejeweled 2, the sequel to the biggest selling handheld game of all time.

Long-time Bejeweled players will find the latest version familiar, but it has many new features, like four standard play modes — classic, action, endless, and the all-new puzzle mode. In addition, five special bonus modes are unlocked as players progress through the various standard modes.

“It is nearly four years since the first Bejeweled for PDA launch captivated players and allowed them to take their addiction with them as they go,” said Howard Tomlinson, Astraware CEO and self confessed Bejeweled addict. “Bejeweled 2 takes that even further, with new modes, a fantastic new look, and Hyper and Power Gems to add an extra level of play to those who crave more strategy to their game.”

There are versions for Palm OS and Pocket PC handhelds — including one especially for VGA Pocket PCs — available at launch. These will be followed in 2005 by a version for Windows Mobile smartphones.

Bejeweled 2 costs $19.95. It can be downloaded from the Astraware web site now.
