— Game menu description from Bejeweled 3

Classic is the primary game mode featured in the Bejeweled series. This is the basic mode with no time limit at all. The aim is to move the gems to make a row of 3, with each row of 3 you make they will shatter and bring others to the grid on the same row of where the smashed. Each time a row of 3 has been smashed the bar at the bottom will advance, fill the bar to go to the next stage. The game ends when there is no possible moves.


The gameplay is very basic, with only the basic gems, Flame Gems (known as Power Gems in Bejeweled 2), Star Gems (only on Bejeweled 3), and Hypercubes. There is no time limit per level, as the player advances to the next level when the bar at the bottom of the board is filled as you play. There is a hint button if you get stuck and if you wait long enough without making a move, the game will display the hint automatically.

Gameplay tips

Always keep as many Hypercubes and Special gems as you can, because they are be incredibly useful when you are stuck in the game. They also help you last longer.

Matching gems lower in the board will displace higher ones, potentially creating but also breaking possible matches so it is best to always try to match gems as high as possible and match lower gems when no other moves are available.

On Bejeweled 2, using the hint button can reduce the levelup bar, making the level harder to complete it. Try not to use it and if you are stuck, wait for a hint to appear instead.
