Bejeweled (Java) is a tile match-3 game developed and published by PopCap Games and Electronic Arts. It is the first game released on cellphones through J2ME platform. The game involves lining up 3 or more gems of the same color in a row to clear them from the board, to score enough points to reach the next level.


The Java version of Bejeweled is the game that featured Bejeweled 2 gems, graphics, and backgrounds. However the gameplay is same as the PC version.


The objective of Bejeweled is to swap one gem with an adjacent gem to form a horizontal or vertical chain of three or more gems of the same color. Bonus points are given when chains of more than three identical gems are formed, but also when two chains are formed in one swap. When chains are formed, the gems disappear and gems fall from the top to fill in gaps. Sometimes, chain reactions (referred to as cascades) are triggered, where chains are formed by the falling gems. Cascades are awarded with bonus points.

The Java version of Bejeweled feature 2 game modes:


Also known as Classic mode, the player must make matches to fill the bar, when it is full it warps the player to the next level. The game ends when there are no more possible moves.

Time Trial[]

Also known as Action mode, the game starts with the bar half full. It will then start to decrease every second, and the player must make matches to add more seconds, with bigger moves getting more time. The player will be warped to the next level when the bar is full; the game ends when the bar empties. When no more moves can be made, the game reshuffles the gems.


The game only feature a song: The Journey Begins. It is the main theme for the Java version of Bejeweled, composed by Peter Hajba (Skaven). This music is a short version of Bejeweled 2 music. However, no music can be played after this song.


  • This game, iPod and plug-and-play versions of the game feature Bejeweled 2 graphics and sound, instead of the game's original graphics and sound.
