Bejeweled Deluxe is a puzzle video game wherein players need to clear a number of jewels from the grid before the time runs out or before there are no more moves left. Clearing the jewels can be done by swapping the jewels and forming matches of three or more of the same jewel. The player gets more points there are more than three jewels matched. Players can also get chain reactions when matches are made on the grid when gems are replaced. These chain reactions give the player bigger points.
The game offers two modes – Normal and Time Trial. In Normal Mode, players level up when the progress bar is filled up. The bar is filled as more matches are made. The game is over when there are no more moves left to be made on the grid. In Time Trial, the progress bar is halfway full. The player gets to the next level when the bar is filled up. The difference is the bar constantly decreases. The game ends when no more moves are possible or when the bar empties out.
Bejeweled Deluxe is the counterpart of the Bejeweled game for different platforms, such as the Palm OS, smartphones, Windows Mobile, and for the Xbox 360.
