Just when you thought you had enough of Bejeweled, PopCap has released an update to the massively popular Match 3 game adding the competitive one minute Blitz mode that has been so popular on Facebook. According to the Facebook application page for Bejeweled Blitz, there are over 10 million monthly active users.

The iPhone version naturally connects to the Facebook version as detailed by Games.com:

The iPhone version also includes all of the same power-ups -- score multipliers and laser gems -- vital to pushing your score to unbeatable heights. Your high scores will automatically show up on the leaderboard in the Facebook version, and you'll be able to post brag notes on your Facebook page anytime you score a metal in the game (see example below). We were impressed to see our new high scores appeared in the Facebook version's leaderboard in real time, as well as our brag notes.

This tight Facebook integration allows you to compete on the existing leaderboards as well as in the weekly tournaments and prize drawings.

The Blitz mode is a free update to the Bejeweled 2 iPhone game. Facebook connectivity is, of course, required to take advantage of the online component. You can play in an offline mode if you prefer, but then you may as well be playing the existing single player modes.

App Store Link: Bejeweled 2, $2.99

    So I've been playing and this is decent of Pop Cap to integrate right into a game I deleted off my phone almost a year ago.

    The Facebook prompt is annoying. There should be an option to bypass it.
