Break your Candy Crush addiction with EA’s free game

Bejeweled 3 1

EA keeps offering games in their On the House program. Previously, they’ve given out copies of Plants vs Zombies and Battlefield 3 for limited periods to anyone who wanted them. Now, they are going old school and helping to get you off of Facebook gaming.

The latest On the House game is Bejeweled 3. For those who don’t know, Bejeweled is the game that Candy Crush cloned in order to make all the money. I mean, here’s the description from EA:

Bejeweled 3 is a truly classic “match three” puzzle design where you’ll link gems of various colors. Find the best combos to cause huge, cascading links that’ll double, triple…even quadruple your score. Try all eight game modes as you make those gems vanish.

The only difference is that it isn’t candy themed. Oh, and I don’t remember any jelly or chocolate in Bejeweled.

On the House specials aren’t forever, but we also don’t know how long they will last. So, if you want the full version of the game absolutely free, head on over to Origin and grab it. Once it’s yours, it’s yours forever, even once the deal ends. So, even if you’re not sure if you want it, you might as well nab it for future possibilities and Facebook game addiction breaking.

Which game would you like to see next from Origin’s On the House program? Are there any treasures buried in the EA store that people might only rediscover if they could get them for free?
