Bejeweled 3, mouseover description

Hypercube is a type of Special Gem that appears in the Bejeweled series that was first appeared in Bejeweled 2.

Overview

It is created when the player matches 5 (or more in Bejeweled 2) gems in a row or can be found buried in Diamond Mine mode, where the player has to unbury it in order to be usable.

When matched with any gem, it gets rid of every one of that color gem on the board. Starting with Bejeweled Blitz, if swapped with another Hypercube, it will destroy all gems on the board in addition to a multi-colored lightning strike. It is useful when the player is about to run out of moves, as it can take out a lot of the gems in the board. However, it is difficult to create this Special Gem as gems appear randomly for the player to create this Special Gem.

Combination effects

In Bejeweled Skies, this Special Gem can be swapped with other Special Gems in order to produce the following effects:

  • Flame Gem: Detonates the swapped Flame Gem and turns all gems of the same color into Flame Gems.
  • Star Gem: Detonates the swapped Star Gem and turns all Gems of the same color into Star Gems.
  • Hypercube (or Darksphere): Clears the board, as of Bejeweled Blitz.
