Bejeweled (PopCap, 2003)
Game: Bejeweled Publisher: PopCap Since its initial launch as an unassuming browser-based puzzle game back in May 2001, Bejeweled and its sequel Bejeweled 2 have gone on to become the most popular casual video games of the century so far, with 350 million downloads and sales across all formats (including desktop computers, consoles and mobile devices) standing at 25 million. PopCap says that, collectively, Bejeweled and Bejeweled 2 have been played for an estimated 600 million hours – that’s the equivalent of 60 people playing the game 24 hours a day since the last Ice Age, 11,400 years ago.
