Parent article: Rockbox's jewels
Actually, no. If you look at the screenshots of XJewel, you will see that its graphics are substantially different from both Rockbox Jewels and Rockbox Bejeweled. For example, the XJewel blue stone is presented viewed from the top; in Bejeweled and Rockbox it is viewed from the side. The orange stone in Xjewel is a cube drawn in isometric perspective; in Bejeweled and Rockbox it is more of a truncated hexagonal pyramid. The XJewel diamond is aligned differently from the one in Bejeweled and Rockbox; etc.
I would have say that Rockobx Jewels graphics were mostly based on Bejeweled, and not on XJewel. It is extraordinarily improbable that two independent game projects -- both starting from something like the 1993 XJewel graphics -- would end up with graphics that are so similar to each other and yet so different from their ancestral programs, unless the artists of one project were copying the other one's style.
