As seen on our New Games and Price Drops page, PopCap games has dropped the price on their popular Bejeweled 2 [App Store] game to $2.99 (down from $7.99).

Play the phenomenal sequel to the classic gem-swapping puzzler! Sit back, relax and marvel at the fun you'll have when you swap adjacent gems to match three or more sparkling jewels. The more matches you make, the higher your score. Enjoy three entrancing game modes with Power Gems and Hyper Cubes. Fully optimized for the touch screen with both landscape and portrait display, it’s an all-new way to play the award-winning, Hall-of-Fame game. Add in amazing planetary backdrops and super special effects, Bejeweled 2 is hours of high-carat fun!

While perhaps not the original match three game, it's likely the most popular incarnation of the game with over 25 million copies of the franchise being sold (across all platforms).

The $2.99 price is only being offered for a "limited time".

    huh... well that's it for me. I'm done paying premium price for an app if it's going to drop in a month or two. Instead I'll let them update it a few times, then when their sales slump take advantage of these price drops.

    I think its a case of apps finding their worth on the app store after an initial boom, itll take a couple of months and things will settle and devs will learn what certain sorts of apps are worth, then we will see some more expensive stuff from the big names coming, 1st the EA games, then people like microsoft etc.

    Come on, this game is so old. How many people have bought this game for another platform? I paid $20 for the PC, $20 for the Palm OS, $5 for my Verizon Phone, and then they want me to pay another $10 to have it on my iPhone? Sure, I bought this as soon as it dropped to $3, but charging $10 for an application that $25 million people have already bought is a little ridiculous. They drop the price on apps because they don't sell. Period.

    Prices always drop on games. Theres been many times when I've bought a PC/360/PS3 for £45 (~$65) and a month later its dropped to £20. Sheesh get over it! Prices dropping is a good thing :)

    Exactly- this game wasn't exactly released last week was it? It's been out a good long while. When games on the DS/PSP etc have been out a while their prices drop too. That's the price you pay for getting it sooner rather than later. Normally prices fluctuations in the app store get on my t!ts too, but in this case I don't blame them at all.

    Bought it on the first day it was in the Store and still love it. Really perfect gameplay, very nice graphics and effects, great sound and music and, after an update, the ability to listen to iPod music while playing. It is still a very polished game and deserved the original price.

    I don't fee betrayed with this price drop, which is the first time.

    The only app totally worth its full price. Now, it's a must have. Really cool to play with own music in the background.
