Brace yourself dear puzzle fans...

Forget playing Candy Crush on your phone because there is something much better to play on your Atari STe: BeGEMeD. This is a twist on the Bejewelled theme and has been developed for the Atari STe and Falcon/TT by Alexander de Vries. BeGEMeD features amazing graphics in 16-colours by Carnivac. In fact, it's hard to believe so few are used because the screen looks incredible. Accompanying those lush visuals is in-game music by Dma-Sc, one of my favourite musicians and it's mesmerisingly awesome.


Nice of you to visit this text, it will give you all the basic information you need to know to get started. Don’t worry it's easy so you will get the hang of it very soon!!

We are visiting Jack Bright, the castle lord of a medieval castle. He has already lived there for a lot of years and the castle needs some work. But his cash flow is a little bit on the downside so to earn some cash he has to swap gems for it.

He has lots of them hidden in his castle but it is a real mess. They are just piled on top of each other in no order at all. To swap them for cash he has to sort them out! But he can only do so if he has 3 or more of the same collection.

How does he do that? Well simple, just align 3 or more gems horizontal or vertical. For every successful swap, he earns those coins. Click the gem you van to swap with one of its neighbours and then choose the one you want to swap. Or even better just drag it over the other one by holding the mouse button, it both works...

As the coin meter reaches the top you have earned enough cash to go to the next level. The aim of the game is to reach the biggest high score of course.

Beta testing again!! Me?

I contacted Alexander to thank him for a great game and it wasn't long before I was beta testing a new version for him. I'm thrilled to report this latest release has numerous bug fixes, extra features and is due very soon. This has been a blast because Alexander is a cool chap and I'm honoured to have played a (tiny) part in the production of what is a fabulous and addictive puzzler. BeGEMeD is one of the best Bejeweled games I have ever seen. 10/10.

AtariMania has the latest version to download!
