IMPORTANT HEALTH AND SAFETY INFORMATION [back to top] A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to certain visual images, including certain light patterns, flashing lights, or saturated red colors. Exposure to certain patterns or backgrounds on a video monitor, or while playing video games attached to a monitor, may induce an epileptic-like seizure. These conditions may induce previously undetected epileptic symptoms even in persons who have no history of prior seizures or epilepsy. If you, or anyone in your family, have a history of epilepsy or seizures, consult your physician prior to playing. Immediately stop playing and consult a doctor if you experience any of the following symptoms: Dizziness Altered vision Eye or muscle twitches Loss of awareness Disorientation Involuntary movement or convulsions Parents should watch for or ask their children about the above symptoms - children and teenagers are more likely than adults to experience these seizures. To reduce the likelihood of a seizure when playing video games: Sit or stand as far from the screen as possible. Play video games on the smallest available monitor. Do not play if you are tired or need sleep. Play in a well-lit room. Take a 10 to 15 minute break every hour. Zen Mode, binaural beats: Certain people may experience mood changes, dizziness, muscle twitches, hallucinations, drowsiness, inattention and other health effects when listening to binaural beats with headphones. If you experience any of these symptoms while playing this mode, IMMEDIATELY remove the headphones, discontinue use and consult your doctor.

GETTING STARTED [back to top] Create Your Profile When you first launch Bejeweled 3, you will be asked to enter your name in the New User box. Your progress and high scores will be saved when you quit. If there are several people playing on one computer, you will want to create separate profiles for each. To do this, click on the link on the Main Menu that reads, "Click here to change user." A dialog box will appear allowing you to create a new profile as well as rename or delete an old one. Options The Options are accessible from the Main Menu screen, or by clicking the Menu button while playing the game. They are: Music: "Music" sets the volume of in-game music. This slider can be adjusted to fit your preference. Sound: "Sound" sets the volume of in-game sound effects. This slider can be adjusted to fit your preference. Voices: "Voices" sets the volume of in-game voices. This slider can be adjusted to fit your preference. 3D Acceleration: This box can be checked to improve performance for computers with supported video cards. Animate Background: This box can be unchecked to improve performance on lower-end computers. If you are running without 3D acceleration, this box is unchecked and cannot be checked. Fullscreen: If this is checked, Bejeweled 3 will use your entire computer screen. If it is not checked, Bejeweled 3 will be played in a window. Custom Cursors: If this is checked, Bejeweled 3 uses a special custom cursor. If it is not checked, Bejeweled 3 uses your computer's regular cursor. Resolution: These boxes control Bejeweled 3's display resolution. They are Normal (800 x 600 pixels), High (1024 x 768 pixels) and Ultra (1920 x 1200 pixels). If you experience performance issues while playing Bejeweled 3, try a lower resolution setting. PLAYING THE GAME [back to top] The Basics The goal of Bejeweled 3 is to swap pairs of gems in order to create lines of matched gems. The main game screen is an 8 x 8 grid of gems. Make lines of three by swapping gems with adjacent gems. When a match is made, the matched gems disappear and more gems fall into the board from above. Create powerful Special Gems by making matches of 4 or more. The game ends when you run out of moves (in Classic Mode), when you run out of time (in Lightning Mode), or for various other reasons (in Quest Mode). Zen Mode is never-ending and allows you to play an eternal persistent game. Controls The controls of Bejeweled 3 are simple. Swap gems either by clicking on a gem and dragging it left, right, up or down (no diagonal moves) or by clicking one gem and then clicking on an adjacent gem. Gems can only be moved if the move makes a match. Unlike in earlier versions of Bejeweled, it is possible to make matches while gems are falling in from previous matches. Use this ability for extra speed! Bejeweled 3 also supports keyboard controls. The arrow keys move the gem reticle around the board, while the W, A, S and D keys move the selected gem in the desired direction (W moves up, A moves left, S moves down and D moves right). Gems There are seven different kinds of gems in Bejeweled 3: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, white and purple. All gems behave and score the same. Special Gems Making matches of particular types can convert gems into Special Gems. Flame Gems are created by making a line of 4 gems. Flame Gems, when matched, explode, destroying themselves along with all eight surrounding gems. Hypercubes are created by making a line of 5 gems. Hypercubes can be matched to any adjacent gem regardless of color, and destroy all gems of that color on the board. Star Gems are created by making a T- or L-shaped match. Star Gems, when matched, send explosive bolts of energy right, left, up and down, destroying all gems on those lines. Supernova Gems are created by making a line of 6 gems (it's possible!). Create one and match it to see what they do! Cascades When you make a match, new gems fall in from above. Sometimes those gems themselves match as soon as they land. This is a cascade, and it counts toward the original match. Cascades can stack; that is, a cascade can trigger another cascade, which can trigger another cascade, and so on. Hints To the left of the game board is a Hint button. Clicking it will indicate a match somewhere on the board. It costs nothing, other than time, to click the Hint button. Replays Sometimes, after a particularly spectacular or high-scoring move in Classic Mode, an Instant Replay button will appear at the bottom of the game board. You can click this button to watch and rewatch your great move in all its glory. Reset Also to the left of the game board is a Reset button. If, after a few seconds, you decide you don't like the board layout, you may hit Reset to start over. The game score of an aborted game is not recorded. Resize Window On the extreme lower right corner of the game window is a resize window icon. To resize the game window, click and drag the resize window icon. This feature is only available under 3D acceleration, which may be turned on or off in the Options window. Help Clicking the "Help" button on the Main page takes you to the Help screen. The Help screen has information on basic gameplay. Menu In addition to the Hint and Reset buttons to the left of the game board is a Menu button. Clicking it brings up the Options menu (see Options) and a button to take you to the Main Menu. Records Clicking the "Records" button on the Main Menu takes you to the Records section. The Records section tracks your High Scores, Badges and Stats.
