— Game menu description from Bejeweled 3

Zen, also known as Zen Mode, is a recurring playable game mode in the Bejeweled series. It first appeared in Bejeweled Twist as one of the game's four playable game modes.

History

Zen mode is a game mode where the player can play endlessly. It started in Bejeweled 2 as Endless mode. It was renamed and carried over to Bejeweled Twist as Zen mode, then it was carried over to Bejeweled 3.

Gameplay

Zen mode is a game mode where the player can play as long as he/she wants. The gem algorithm has been made so that there is always at least one available move. This mode is a good way to understand the basics, as the game continues indefinitely.

In Bejeweled 3, this mode features a Zen button which allows the player to relax while playing this mode. It has different features such as breath modulation, ambient sounds, positive mantras, and binaural beats depending on the version the player is playing on.

Gameplay tips

  • This is a good game mode in order to practice strategies.
  • You can also earn some achievements here, but this is very inefficient as you can only attain the Inferno, Stellar, Chromatic, Blaster, and Annihilator achievements, which can be (easily?) earned via normal gameplay attempts.

Trivia

Specific to Bejeweled Twist

  • The player will earn half the Skill Stars as they normally earn on each level in Classic mode, with an additional Skill Star added every second level in this mode.
  • The maximum number of Skill Stars that can be earned after completing a level in Zen mode is 50.

Specific to Bejeweled 3

  • Butterflies mode becomes available whenever the fifth level of Zen mode is reached in all versions except the mobile version.
  • When your score is over 2,147,483,647 (231-1), which is the maximum value for a 32-bit signed integer in computing, it will stop adding points and the point display will be replaced with "MAX SCORE".
    • This prevents the score from being a negative score due to an integer overflow.
  • This mode incorporates a system of jewels on a necklace that are earned every time a level is completed.
    • A system of collecting diamonds can also be found in its predecessor.
    • The jewels on the necklace can have 8 possible colors: purple, pink, red, yellow, green, blue, teal, and silver.
