Game History - BeSlimed
BeSlimed, a match 3 style game originally created by Markus Inger, and
modified by Lazy Mutt Games.
Bejeweled was released in 2000 and is widely thought of as the flagship
match 3 game. PopCap, the creator, estimates 10 billion collective hours
of Bejeweled play by roughly 500 million people around the world. It’s
also introduced one of the most mirrored puzzle game mechanics.
Since the original release of Bejeweled, the Match 3 genre has expanded
drastically, with different strategies, storylines, and structures. You
can swap gummies, animals, jewels, monsters, sea creatures, and much more.
You can play hundreds (sometimes even thousands) of levels that never get
old because of added gameplay elements.
