Astraware is particularly pleased to include the award-winning* Bejeweled with the new Treo 680, as this continues a long relationship established with the Treo 600. Since that device every Treo smartphone has had an Astraware-developed game bundled with it. So far Zap! 2016, Cubis, Bejeweled, and Dynomite! have all received this honor.

Originally developed for Palm OS® in 2001, Bejeweled has been regularly updated to support new devices including Palm’s range of Treo smartphones. The latest version of Bejeweled includes full 5-way controls so it can be played one-handed, and is tremendously popular with fans of casual games worldwide.

“As a huge fan of the whole Treo range, I’m thrilled to continue supporting Palm by providing the best games,” said Howard Tomlinson, CEO of Astraware. “We receive a lot of feedback from busy people who like to play our games on their Treo smartphones in their spare moments, and Bejeweled is a particular favourite.”

“We are pleased to once again work with Astraware to provide award-winning game content with the Treo 680,” said Mark Bercow, senior vice president, business development, Palm, Inc. “Bejeweled is perfectly suited to gaming on the move — its one-handed play complements the capabilities of the Treo beautifully.”
