One of my favorite online games of all time isn’t World of Warcraft or Words With Friends or anything of the sort, it’s a pretty simple little puzzle game where you connect groups of matching shapes to rack up points and beat levels. It’s a whole lot of fun if you’ve never played it, and if you’ve never played it, you’re in luck. Bejeweled is back for Android and Apple smartphones. Best of all, it’s free.
Of course, it’s free with optional microtransactions, but you actually don’t have to buy anything to have fun, because the lives are pretty generous. It’s called Bejewled Stars, and it’s perfectly set up for smartphone players, who have to put the game down suddenly every now and then to deal with real life. Plus, if you play with your headphones on, a giant space cat meows at you every time you beat a level! Who doesn’t love cats online?
