Hello all!

I haven't introduced myself here yet, but I am one of the new engineers on the Replit team. I primarily work on our container infrastructure and I'm really excited about the future of our platform :)


Recently, one of my team members released an alpha version the KaBoom.js game framework and I wanted to try building something with it. So I decided to build a Replit themed Bejeweled clone. If you're not familiar, the goal is to swap two adjacent items to create runs or 3 or more in a row or column. Scoring is based on the item value multiplied by the total items in the group. There's no game over detection yet, probably (definitely) has a few bugs, and there's a few other things that I'd like to add, but it gives you a glimpse of what is possible.

I hope you enjoy and I encourage you to try building your own game with KaBoom.js! 💥
