Before the world became obsessed with lining up strings of candy, there was another match three that was king of the castle. Bejeweled has arguably been superseded in terms of delivery many times over since, but – much like Tetris before it – there’s a reason that a large chunk of the jewel obsessed puzzlers that have launched on the App Store in recent years mimic Bejeweled. That’s because the premise of matching up three or more gems is a solid one and, presented without any needless flair, PopCap’s flagship has rightly stood the test of time.
