PopCap’s Bejeweled 2 + Blitz now free for iPhone/iPod Touch

Yesterday, we saw a quality game go free in geoDefense Swarm. Today, PopCap is offering Bejeweled 2 + Blitz as a freebie for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Most of you likely have played this match 3 on one platform or another, and perhaps even consider it among the most addictive in the genre. No word on why and for how long this offer will last, so if you still don’t have Bejeweled on your iDevice, be sure to grab it ASAP.

In related PopCap news, Peggle HD (TMA’s iPhone review) was just released for the iPad yesterday. This is certainly one of those games where it’s much more enjoyable on the tablet’s larger screen.
