Popcap’s new and improved version of Bejeweled Blitz has been beta testing for a while now. Today, the company announced that the new release would be coming out of beta and would be available to everyone on Tuesday, January 26th.
We took an in-depth look at the changes last week, but for those not in the know, there are two major additions to keep your eye on: coins, and boosts. Now, every time you complete a round of Bejeweled Blitz, you’ll earn a few hundred coins (or 1000+ if you’re very good). These coins can then be saved up and spent on various boosts, which provide power-ups in-game such as extra time, random power gems, etc.
Bejeweled Blitz is the biggest arcade puzzle title on Facebook – I’m sure Popcap is hoping that this enhancement makes the already tremendously popular even more tremendously popular.
