Xbox Live Arcade Version
A console version of Bejeweled Blitz called Bejeweled Blitz Live was announced by Microsoft at CES 2011 for Xbox Live Arcade
. The title was part of the XBLA "House Party" promotion. Part of the announcement was the reveal of a 16-player party mode which can be played over Xbox Live
, along with traditional leaderboards and the ability to combine scores with friends called "Friendscores." This version costs 800 MSP.
There are two modes for the game, Classic and Twist. Classic is the standard match-three Bejeweled game. In Twist, you can rotate any gems in groups of four squares (two by two), right or left without penalty. Rounds are 60 seconds in this mode and you need to get as many matches as possible.
