EA has announced an update to PopCap’s Bejeweled Blitz on mobile, bringing a highly requested feature from the Facebook game to mobile devices: Vaulted Gems. These gems are special boosts that can dramatically change the game, adding special diagonal explosions to the board, clearing groups of a single color of gem, and more.
The Vaulted Gem update carries over any gems players had on Facebook, allowing them to be used on mobile. Players can purchase these gems from the game’s items tab using the coins they’ve earned while playing the 60-second match-three game, with this update also introducing a special new Ice-Burrrst Gem to players.
In addition, players who use the Daily Spin machine five days in a row receive a free Blazing Speed Gem for use in a future game.
