FOOL’S
GOLD AND DISAPPEARING JEWELS! ZONE.COM ADDS TWO NEW GAMES TO ITS CACHE

 

Zone.com
has once again bewitched game players with the unveiling of two new
single-player games, "Bejeweled" and "Alchemy," earlier
this week. Both games appeal to puzzle lovers of all ages, but be forewarned,
these games are entertaining, hard to quit and extremely absorbing. Since its
debut, "Bejeweled" has become one of the most popular games on the
Zone.

 

The
object of "Bejeweled" is to make the gems vanish, clearing the board
and advancing to the next level. Aligned, matching groups of three jewels
magically disappear, adding time to the diminishing clock and points to a
player’s increasing score. Magic? Not likely, however this race against time
and agility will appeal to the bandit in everyone.

 

Is
it magic or chemistry that allows players to turn lead into gold in
"Alchemy"? This new strategy game challenges players to find the
right combination to form solid gold; but one wrong move and even Houdini,
rabbits and top hats won’t help.

 

The
games can be found at http://www.zone.com/alchemy/ and http:// www.zone.com/bejeweled/.
