Bejeweled is a husk of a game; a shell beneath which lies only emptiness. People play Bejeweled because they desire the candy coating the shell is made of. There are no sunflower seeds beneath that shell, nor are there chocolates or fruit-flavored lumps. I can assure you there are no almonds to be found. There is the candy layer, the joy emitted when colored blocks explode in cascades. There is a thin layer of machinations beneath, tasting of aluminum and discomfort, when one wonders how they manage to drop the blocks so that there is always one viable combination. Then there is nothing, no stimulus at all besides synth music and a vaguely interesting background.

Basically, playing Bejeweled is a waste of your time in the most literal sense imaginable. Just go buy some chocolate instead.
