Astraware's Bejeweled 2 Coming Soon
Bejeweled 2, the sequel to the best selling PDA game, Bejeweled, will make its handheld debut less than a month after PopCap's PC version and will retain all the features of its bigger brother, including four standard play modes, classic, action, endless and the all-new puzzle mode. Additionally, five special bonus modes are unlocked as players progress through the various standard modes.
"Bejeweled 2 will take the Bejeweled phenomenon to the next level, and will become our flagship PDA product moving into 2005." said Howard Tomlinson, Astraware CEO and self confessed Bejeweled addict. "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. 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."
With all new graphics, stunning background images, in-game transitions and cutting-edge effects Bejeweled 2 is sure to captivate both the die-hard Bejeweled fan and new players coming to the Bejeweled experience for the first time.
Bejeweled 2 is available to pre-order for $14.95 USD at Astraware's website, and will be released in December 2004. Preview screenshots are available here.
"Astraware have done a terrific job porting Bejeweled 2 to the PDA," said Jason Kapalka, Creative Director and co-founder of PopCap. "They have consistently outdone themselves with their conversions of our games, both in technical areas and in retaining playability, all on devices with dramatically fewer resources than a PC."
