Bejeweled 2 update

Anyone get the new update?
Oddly there was no text in the update notice - but...
High Scores!!!

Also, option to play your iPod music while playing instead of the standard porn soundtrack.

A new Endless mode which so far seems exactly that.

I love this game already and this really makes the game that much better.
Your thoughts?

Sounds good. Bejeweled hasn't been on my priority list at the moment, mainly because it's 6 and it missed 'endless' mode, which was the version I most liked playing. This update looks promising though.

Peggle would be an instant buy for me though. I absolutely love the desktop version.

I couldn't agree more with you on that one.

Bejeweled 2 is a good game, but I've played it in so many other forms (cell phone, 360 arcade, PC, etc.) that I just can't bring myself to spending $10 on this, when it's the same game that's been around forever.

I know this game is from 2008, but I thought since Slide to Play was nice enough to review this game for any of you on the fence, I would post it here.

REVIEW

REVIEW
.... They think Bejeweled 2 doesn't have enough creativity?

Popcap? Who basically started the whole match 3 genre?!

I've been on the fence about this one for a while. I'd been eagerly awaiting impressions for the past 17 months, but... nothing. I couldn't get a good feel for what the gameplay is like on screenshots alone. Thanks to STP though, I'll be picking it up. I think this whole "match 3" thing might just catch on. Good on them for bringing this hidden gem to light.

Seriously? Bejeweled 2 has been available as a Flash game for several years now. The iPhone version is pretty much exactly the same thing.
