Lots of Ads, and now Instability
by Accipiter on 2016/02/07 01:45
This game used to be great, but it slowly started to be overrun with advertising - from Progressive ads popping up in-game, to the video ads, to the constant bombardment of "buy more coins" popups. And as of the latest update, the game now crashes constantly. A year or two ago this game would have been worth your time. Not anymore.
Latest revision shuts down in mid game and does not credit you the coins/jewel spent!!!
by Creynal on 2016/02/06 16:25
What the heck?!? If the app is going to shut down in mid game, the least it can do is credit me the coins or jewel spent in the playing of it!!!
Can't stay away!
by RLancia3 on 2016/02/06 10:25
Love the game and have been playing for years. Updates always keep it fresh. How about more levels?! I'm maxed at 182!
Starting to tick me off
by DevilishKPint on 2016/02/04 16:26
When I play the daily bonus, I have a problem if somebody calls me. The game will pop back up for a second in paused mode, but immediately shut itself off. Basically wherever I was in the game gets lost, and I end up trying to play again and costing me more coins, as well as the lost score. Twice now I have had all three stars and when I get a call the game forgets its place, and when I go back in I have to replay the game at another cost. Really making me mad.
Did not receive the coins I purchased

by Matty Pos on 2016/02/03 14:22
This game just blows. You only get a minute to play each time and it ruins the fun. Everything costs so much, that you'll need to spend real money to do anything. Screw this new type of money gameplay.

Bejeweled out of special
by Minion2488 on 2016/02/02 05:12
I have purchased a couple of times now. I don't have Facebook and don't want to sign up for one either. But when you purchase 270k of tokens an get 3 rare gems with it, then you click it. When you store them and come back to the app. They are not there, even if you have one them on the daily challenges you have to use them then and their. I am tried of being cheated out of things in this game.
Great time killer
by cyber553 on 2016/02/01 15:48
Tons of fun, great when you only have a minute or two to kill. Popcap has done great work improving the stability of this game recently and it now runs beautifully and no longer crashes. Thanks for the hard work guys! Lastly, I want to add an opinion: I really don't like the daily challenges where you have to earn 3M+ points to win the grand prize. I admit, it's fun to play with fewer colors and crazy power-ups, but I usually leave those games feeling empty because no matter how well I play, the only thing that really matters in determining what I win is how lucky I get in the End Game madness, which has nothing to do with skill! Hoping these type of daily challenge games will be removed (or at least happen with reduced frequency) in the future.
Too many ads now
by M0mmaof2 on 2016/02/01 02:46
Ugh
Hate the ads!!!
by BJD1201 on 2016/01/31 23:42
I used to really enjoy this game. But the full page pop up ads are very frustrating. And the video ads are awful. How embarrassing when the seriously LOUD music begins!! Is there no way to mute those sounds?
Get Rid of the Game Center pop-up!
by OnePilot on 2016/01/31 17:28
Blitz has too many ad pop-ups to begin with! The pop-ups for Game Center are just annoying! Make a config-option to opt-out of the stupid game center! If that's not possible, don't ask people more than twice about game center -- no means no
Ads, ads, & more ads
by FlemingFamily2 on 2016/01/31 06:42
I understand this is a "free" game and I didn't mind the little ads that would pop up now and then but now there are video ads that are SUPER loud and pop up ALL THE TIME. Deleting the app from my phone.
Updates
by Simutton on 2016/01/30 02:29
My free spin does not work and the challenge doesn't work. Hard to compete with anyone if you don't have any coins. Takes the fun out of the game.now my free coins don't work. Bummer. All the fun has been taken away. Please fix this if you can.
Won't open
by danjodi on 2016/01/30 01:52
Since the last update game will not open, just closes. In order to fix was told to uninstall, than reinstall, except that erases all the coins I have, about 4,500,000. I will probably uninstall game permanently.
ADS!
by psm67lh on 2016/01/29 23:49
I have had this game for years even paid for the ad free version now the ads are annoying and out of control
Where are the daily challenges

My daily challenges aren't working at all
Excellent game for everyone
by SalmanLemon8 on 2016/01/29 13:14
Anyone can play this game and it is very addictive. I really love it. Very good updates.
Used to love this game
by Dana1024 on 2016/01/29 12:18
But I rarely win big on the free spin. When I try to select 3 boosts, the game states that I don't have enough coins. I currently have 19,100 coins but the 3 boosts together only cost 13,000. Did you program the game to use the new math? Because the first 3 boosts cost 6000, 3000, and 4000 coins respectively and when I add these up, they add up to 13,000 so it doesn't make sense as to why 19,100 coins isn't enough to buy these boosts Also, do not purchase any of the deals that pop up, I purchased a deal to get coins and a couple of rare gems when the game crashed. When I got back on, I got the coins but it didn't give me gems. Customer service was no help at all

Being ruined by ads
by cgiblets on 2016/01/27 06:02
Love the game, but when the loud, unstoppable ads come on, I won't play. If they remain, I won't.
Crashes and I lose the items I purchased
by goodgirlgracie on 2016/01/27 02:16
Still crashing and losing my boosts. I'll buy a boost or earn one and then in the middle of the game the app will crash. So I earn coins and you pretty much just take them back. I'll buy boosts then the game will crash and I'll lose the boosts and/or the discount for gems for future games. Please fix so this can be a 5 star game again. ************************************ Don't like the new checkerboard for the background, hard to see the board. This was a 5 star game for me till this recent update.
Bad update
by Jgurlw4 on 2016/01/27 02:06
Daily challenge is not workin at all. Luv the game but tiered of all the problems
Fix it!!! Been broken over a month
by KatieKeith90 on 2016/01/26 23:12
Fix it!!! For over a month it hasn't worked! I've lost so many coins from items and boosts because if I can even get the game to work it freezes and crashes mid game! Daily challenge doesn't work and now items don't work! I've tried logging in and out and uninstalling and reinstalling which made it worse!
KEEP LOOKING
by Keeperofthegate on 2016/01/26 15:49
Enjoyed the originals. I win coins on the slot machine-50k yesterday, I only got 5000. Happens all the time. Could someone tell me how the heck to play poker? Yesterday BLITZ offered free "try again"? Then I switched back to Blitz and 5000 coins were taken out per retry. That's cheating app Dept. Last gripe. I got a score over 600, yes cheap thrills, but when the leader board reset my #1 score for week was gone but everyone else's stayed. NOT HAPPY
It's good but...
by MissSara412 on 2016/01/26 14:01
Like the game a lot but it's to hard to get coins. It pretty much sets you up so you have to buy them to be able to use any of the good powers.
Really pitiful
by mikee219 on 2016/01/26 10:35
The game works on Facebook. Why can't you get it to work on a brand new iPhone? Update after update after update and you refuse to fix the problem that everyone is complaining about. The daily challenge doesn’t download. The items that make playing fun don’t download. It’s an Internet connection problem, the app claims but I am streaming live content in HD using this Internet connection. I have the latest iPhone with the latest iOS and an old iPad and the problem is the same on both of them. Why don’t you listen to your users? You’ve ruined an otherwise good game. The one star is well earned!!!
Video ads
by Playing in Las Vegas on 2016/01/26 06:43
I used to enjoy these games. The video ads are over the top. I have the sound turned off on the games. The video sounds are on full blast! One of the video ads was for a tv show. The ad was inappropriate! Too sexy, too much for a game! You guys went over the top and these ads are out of line! SHAME ON YOU!!!
Still having problems!!!
by Sheba38 on 2016/01/25 16:26
After sending you my initial complaint, I was able to play the game briefly. First the points that I originally earned, before downloading iOS8 are gone. Second, the game just shut down and I have to click on the app to continue playing. This gets annoying after awhile. Please help me. I did enjoy this game before iOS8. Help!!! I updated to iOS9 and I am having problems with the game making purchases with my coins without my permission to do so. Please correct this error. If I have to give up this game I will. I hope not to but if push comes to shove I will. Thank you for time and consideration.
Roll it fairly
by Gagoute on 2016/01/24 08:17
From the beginning it used to give free coin 250-500. Now never 3 ruby or 3 jade because I started buying. You not paying the more I'll buy now is 99 cents. Not like before. You open my eyes. People are not as stupid.
I love it, but Kanga Ruby Levels 2 and 3 should be added.
by antonioflowers056 on 2016/01/24 07:10
A lovely game, but one thing, I wish the Kanga Ruby Levels 2 and 3 are available on mobile.
Don't bother.
by Greithoth on 2016/01/23 18:25
Used to be a fun game to play. It's now just annoying with the forced redirects and repetitive pop ups. It's turned into nothing but a time wasting money grab.
Crashes with the new update
by Some time user on 2016/01/23 17:46
You try to do the daily spin but it stops and tells you you have a 'network error' and to check your connection. Also, you ever notice you can never get 3 blue stones on the spin? Why is that?
ADS!!!!!
by Monkeymikew3 on 2016/01/23 01:26
Was one of my favorite games to kill time. Not now.... Way to many ads now and video ads that can't be skipped. Wth!!!
Auto videos are not good
by Genonichols on 2016/01/22 23:49
Do not like the idea that all of a sudden, a video starts playing.

Bejeweled
by sln phone on 2016/01/22 18:48
I have been playing this game for about 5 years and have yet to ever see three blue diamonds on the free spin! I agree with some of the other reviewers, this game is getting harder to play. It is as if you are forcing players to "buy" the tokens. Never had ads before either.
Crashes
by Janits1 on 2016/01/22 10:33
Game has been crashing whenever I try to open daily challenge. Daily challenge is constantly loading and never loads. When I click on it, game shuts off.
Crashing
by Jeh32 on 2016/01/22 08:27
It keeps crashing and wasting my boosts and rare gems! Not ok! 😡😡😡
Rude interrupting
by Michnana on 2016/01/22 01:47
I do not understand why the Apple Ap store is constantly interrupting my games. If I wanted to Ho yo the Ap store and get a new game I would. Please stop this rude activity. I love Bejeweled Blitz but I am ready to delete this and a few other games.
Used to be my favorite
by JennyJ79 on 2016/01/21 23:37
I have been playing this game daily for a long time, but lately, bonus games pop up and deduct points when I haven't even tried to do it, very, very aggravating! Do not think I will continue to play!
Crashy McCrashy app
by Monkeysonfire on 2016/01/21 22:36
Not cool!! Can't believe there's still crashing, how long have you been programming?! Might get two games in between crashes..
Only one saving grace
by moondog_42 on 2016/01/21 16:57
I've had this game for years and I think it just keeps getting unplayable with each update. The only thing that stops me from deleting it is that over time I've amassed 5,000,000 coins and I hate to just drop them and walk away. The game play is still fun when the game doesn't crash. But it crashes every other time I open it so my enjoyment is only about 50%. And the ads went from mildly annoying to pestering to OMG I AM GOING TO PERSONALLY DRIVE TO THIS COMPANY'S HEADQUARTERS AND MAKE THEM WATCH THESE ADS CLOCKWORK ORANGE STYLE. At that point I just close it and remove it from memory and refuse to play again until the next daily challenge comes up. The only thing that makes it worthwhile is the daily challenge. If that goes away again, I will definitely be removing this game.
Bejeweled Blitz
by Woodeck on 2016/01/21 11:17
Was a fun, enjoyable game until most recently when all the rare gems all disappeared and there is nothing to enhance points, thus have stopped playing entirely. And the support link does not work.
Update
by Netty's Toy on 2016/01/21 09:08
Update issues? I had a lot of "coins" 500,000ish did a update on my iPad an went down to "0" afterwards. Is there a retrieval?
please refund now
by VH1 - yes!! on 2016/01/20 17:54
i purchased a rare gem and the game closed on me , never got the chance to play. the game took my money and ran 🙁
Used to be great
by Tia426 on 2016/01/20 01:37
I used to love this game and the updates that came with it. Now not only has it deleted itself but my progress was totally wiped out!!!!!!! I'm not buying anymore coins and going through this process of accumulation again!!! PLEASE FIX!!!!!
Bummer
by Jordibrody on 2016/01/19 13:30
This game is getting on my last nerve. Often when I play the game crashes, especially when I'm working towards a high score. The coins for any boost are taken at the beginning of the game so no matter what they are gone. However, if you've reached a new high score and then the game crashes, the score is gone along with all the coins you used. Don't bother going to customer support. All you get there are FAQs and a circular hell that never gets you to a screen where you can report the problem. I've played this game for years but I'm really close to calling it quits.

by Amandalevalley on 2016/01/18 19:52
I play this game all the time, sense they added the daily challenge it is my favourite part... Now it doesn't work it just keeps spinning and says download in progress, please fix this bug... The last 3 or 4 days playing has been boring as hell!!!
Locked out?
by Avi.c12 on 2016/01/18 19:37
Am I locked out after winning to much? After this last Tuesday "clearing" I can not access special gems, nor, the daily challenges. Why not?
Fixed probabilities
by Jewellmc on 2016/01/17 19:43
When you first download this game, you win big on your spins and gameplay is fast and fun. After your first day or two, your spins are generally only going to win you 1k - 2500 coins (you'll often get blue, blue, purple or something similar). Also, daily challenges are fun and normal gameplay is fun, but if you activate a rare gem, your probability of matches goes way down. It's just super obvious that the game is rigged against you as a ploy to get you to buy coins. I play this game a little every day, but I'm definitely getting annoyed enough with all these little tricks to uninstall and write this review. Hopefully it's helpful to some of you.
Good game
by _OT on 2016/01/17 16:04
I like playing this game everyday. It is a fun game. The only issues I have is that when you are close to completing a room, it takes forever to get that collection item or two. It's up to the player to win the bingo card but the collection item should at least appear. Also, I play the daily free rounds everyday. I have a few collection items left. The items never appear on the bingo cards. I have been doing this for about a year. Maybe delaying the collection items is how the owners make money.
Updates are aweful, won't load
by Dippity dan on 2016/01/17 05:55
The daily challenge won't load since the last update, which as of now it's 4 days
Update downer
by Video'd out... on 2016/01/17 02:22
The latest update killed the daily challenge feature. It is now just spinning and not downloading. It happened a few updates ago. Please fix so I can get my daily fix of Bejeweled!
What happened to the game?
by GinaZ73 on 2016/01/16 14:36
I've been playing this for years and years. I don't use FB but I created an account just for the purpose of this game. I get that ads must be incorporated to keep developer cost down but they've gotten out of hand. With each update the daily challenge fails to load for at least 24 hours if not longer. I know it is not my internet connection. I'm struggling with just using up all my coins on the special gems and bidding farewell the Blitz. My 12 year son enjoys the competition though but he too experiences the same issues. I think I'll try not doing the updates for awhile.
It's full of advertisements
by Simdps on 2016/01/16 07:20
Guess greed overcame pride of what he accomplished in the game and filled it full of advertisements for the Mighty dollar !! So sad
Remove ads
by sixfootdad on 2016/01/16 06:37
It's quite unpleasant and startling to have the sound turned off and then have an ad suddenly play at full volume. It's a rather poor playing experience. I can't recommend this game until there's either a way to pay for the removal of ads or Bejeweled stops allowing very loud and startling ads.
Love it but latest update causing issue
by Koop Kidd on 2016/01/16 03:09
I did the latest update is causing the daily game on the bottom right to spin. It says download in progress but it's been like that over a day. Help!!!
Stop the Ads and repair the daily challenges.
by 38Scottie on 2016/01/16 02:35
Once a fun game, but recently it's become a pain to play with the constant pop-ups and interruptions. Please fix this. Also why have the daily spins been so low? What a scam!!! Latest update removed daily challenges, and the special gems I earned are no longer available. B.S. Don't bother downloading. Rip off. F-Facebook, I don't do social networking.
Latest update
by Greanfroge on 2016/01/15 22:05
Haven't been able to play for 2 days. Loading is stuck. Plus daily spins are lame. 2 blues and some other color. It's stuck on lame lowest amounts. 1,000 to 2,500 coins.
The troubles continue 😡😡😡
by jp4675 on 2016/01/15 22:04
Once again, today (Jan 15, 2015) the daily challenge isn't downloading. STUCK!!! 😡 When it works, it's a great game! 🙄 But this problem happens over and over with updates. Sloppy coding??? 👎
Bad update
by Fifav on 2016/01/15 20:27
Icon still candy canes and holly. Unable to play daily challenge....I keep being told to be patient while it loads but it never does. Patience is gone.

About the ads
by Zhabbe on 2016/01/15 18:39
You know this is a fun game if you need to kill time. And it's free. And I don't mind looking at regular ads to keep it free. But now there are video ads. And the sound is turned up SO high that I can't play in a waiting room anymore or anytime I want quiet (I have the sounds of the game turned off for good reason). And I pity anyone who is surprised by a video ad when they are wearing earphones because they seriously will need hearing aids after one of those ads blasts their eardrums. Even when my phone is on vibrate the ads just blare away before I can swipe them off the screen of my phone. Don't risk it if you sneak playing at work! I will most likely get fed up enough to delete this app very soon and I've warned everyone I know. It's really bad enough to damage your hearing.
Freakin Updates

FAKE OFFERS
by 66tgh887 on 2016/01/15 13:12
A fake offer of 1,400,000 coins for $1.99 keeps popping up, but errors as soon as you click okay. This could not be an accident because every other offer can be transacted just fine. Apple has no business permitting fake offers in their market.
CANT OPEN ON IPAD SINCE JAN 13
by Jolts5 on 2016/01/15 12:04

Too many ads :(
by Annonomous on 2016/01/15 10:23
You can barely enjoy playing a game before being bombarded by ads. If the intent was to frustrate me you succeeded. I'll play a different game with less or no ads.
VERY SLOW BORING USELESS
by ExtremelyAngry on 2016/01/15 08:08
USELESS USELESS USELESS. EVEN THE SUPPORT IS USELESS. I GIVE GAME ZERO STARS. GAME IS WORTHLESS, ITS VERY SLOW & BORING. UPDATES ARE USELESS.
Overall great time killer
by Huggabunchable on 2016/01/15 04:14
So this game is pretty fun and a great way to kill time. Especially at night laying in bed with a case of insomnia. The only gripe I really have would be the cost of the boosters. They seem to be super expensive and you have to build up your coins to use any or win them. Oh and quite often I'll lose 10k in the daily challenge when the game crashes on me. At least a few times a day.
So I watch those ads...
by Dwbp on 2016/01/14 23:11
And your app does Not record the promised 2,000 coins promised when I watch that Stupid ad! What else does it "forget" to notice??
More

Best game but I wish you can hit bigger jackpots been playing for years and never hit a big jackpot
Excellent

This game is perfect and fun!! I can play this endlessly. Keep up the good work you guys!!
Very poor support, updates make the game unplayable!
by SweetCat2 on 2016/01/14 12:25
I used to love this game. However, after almost every update my game wouldn't load, or spins wouldn't load. I followed the instructions from "support",(I use that term loosely) I logged out of Facebook, and then could not login again. I deleted my game and reinstalled it. All of my coins and items were gone, and still I could not connect to Facebook. After the last update, I was finally able to connect, but everything was still gone!! I'm writing this review in the hopes that other people will learn from my mistakes. Please don't put any money into this game! And don't bother contacting support, because they will not respond.

What's the point?
by Orlando Rays on 2016/01/13 21:25
What's the point of in-app purchases if you're just going to force us to see ads every other game anyway? I'm not buying in anymore.
Ads should not override sound settings!!!
by SmittyRedcard on 2016/01/13 02:17
Love the app, don't really mind the ads. I understand the need to pay. But when I have sounds off in an app, I don't expect a video ad to play at full volume in the middle of using it! I'm leaving this review at all offending apps. Sound levels are for EVERYTHING in the app, not just in app sounds. Fix this and get a true rating.
Awesome Game, but....
by Dumb clown 48 on 2016/01/13 01:29
Great game, GET RID OF THE ADS!!!! I have the full version of this game so I shouldn't see ANY ad! And I'm sure thousands of people agree with me! Other than the ridiculous number of ads, it's a blast!
Horrible!
by Alidrake32328 on 2016/01/12 04:51
Too many ads, after years of playing this game I am about to delete.
What Happened to all of my points???
by Toooooo funnnnn on 2016/01/11 22:13
As of yesterday, I had over 11,000,000 points . As of 5 minutes ago, I have 150,000 and only because I just got 100,000 on today's spin. What happened. I also lost me bonuses from the daily game. Give it all back or I will quit playing AND will let every friend I have know what you took away from me.
Too many adverts
by Calhoopy on 2016/01/11 15:12
Used to play this all the time, it was my favorite game. However the adverts are out of control!! I don't play half as much because I'm so annoyed!!! Can't choose to ignore them as you once could. You blink and find yourself halfway through the new advertisement and if you aren't careful downloading something you have absolutely no interest in!!!! Hate it!!!!
Gems Loss
by MrsLive on 2016/01/11 07:29
Frustrated to say the least! Banked seven various gems, only to have them disappear! Some I earned but at least 4 I PURCHASED! So why not reimburse my account; you can do that you know. And now seeing SO many reviews about lost coins, I'm tempted to use my almost 2M and quit while I'm just frustrated and not outraged. Fix, upgrade and improve EFFECTIVELY so patrons are victims. #ThisGameIsNotThat GoodYaKnow

Obnoxiously loud ads
by Ladybuggs717 on 2016/01/11 00:04
Addendum 1/10/16 I enjoy playing this game and I didn't even mind when the pop up ads started but these new, loud, obnoxious commercials that I can't close out of for however many seconds have made this game unplayable. Please stop that or add a way to mute these commercials. Since the update, I can't log in to play against my Facebook friends and my scores won't post!!
Terrible update.
by FB issues on 2016/01/10 21:17
Don't see friends scores any more even though logged in to Facebook . Now you have to 'invite' them. Game really not fun any more. Probably gonna delete now.
Update
by Gilslady on 2016/01/10 03:48
Tried to update. Lost app on iPhone. Still trying to update on screen.
Abysmal, nonexistent support
by Junk, don't buy! on 2016/01/10 01:34
If you use Facebook to log into this app, beware. If Facebook disables your account, which is a huge, regular problem with Facebook, you will not be able to log into this app and you will lose all of your coins and special items that you have won and paid for. In my case, that is roughly 4,600,000 coins and countless items that are now gone. What's worse is that I have contacted support 3 times and I have not received even a single response and all of my coins/items, that I paid for, have not been merged or credited to my new Facebook login, as I have requested that they be. In short, this is a very shady company that is very happy to take your money in exchange for the worst customer service that I have ever experienced.
Failure to pay
by Himandaro on 2016/01/08 08:40
The latest update has failed to award the correct number of coins for the 125,000 payoff. Twice this week I have received 25,000 instead. Tough when it cost 90,000 to play the round.
Playing less
by Moshi 69 on 2016/01/07 23:26
Loved this game. Still do, but for a game I paid for, the amount of ads coming up now is ridiculous.
Bejeweled blitz is fun!
by Bejeweled Leslie on 2014/06/20 05:05
This first paragraph is my most recent review...I changed the rating from a 4 to a 3 because of all the trouble with daily spins. Not only is it always such a low amount, sometimes it doesn't even work! This prevents you from gaining more coins for spinning up to 7 days in a row. Also I find it ironic that when the coins are 50% off on Fridays, I can't even buy them because I get this asinine message that says"loading the store. please stand by while we stock our shelves" LOL!! Then after 11pm when the coins are back to full price, I can magically access the store to buy coins!! But guess what?!?! I'm not going to buy them anymore. This game bores me with all the bugs. Please fix it. I love that you can get the streaks on rare gems and that you can see your stats too ( just like on a PC). However you can't connect to Facebook and play on an iPad (you have to use the app). Therefore, if you want to buy coins you have to get them through the iTunes store, you can't share spin winnings or check your messages like you can on Facebook. The graphics and loading speed are great, but the technical difficulties I'm having with making an in-app purchase is really annoying me right now. I would like to see the Bejeweled app be able to do all of the things that playing the game on Facebook does.
Great Pick-up 'n' Play Puzzle Gameplay
by DTx21 on 2015/01/03 05:17
A lot of Puzzle games like this require the player to rely heavily upon being incredibly pensive and reflecting deeply upon his or her move options and thinking ahead and strategizing, and only moving quickly once those conditions have been met. Not so with this game! It still requires the player to be observant and to think 2 or 3 seconds ahead, but mostly it demands him/her to have quick reflexes and resolute persistence. It's all about jumping in, making as many great matches as you can in a minute, and hoping you got a great score in the process. (Or at least that's how I play.) You don't need to worry about digging yourself into deep pit or painting yourself into a corner—the game will always drop the right colored gems to enable you to make at least one new move, so keep making those matches without fear for running out of moves. It has enough bells and whistles to enhance the longevity of the replay value. I totally recommend this game for Puzzle gamers who desire for a change of pace something faster and more simplistic yet still appropriately challenging in its own ways. My Rating: 9/10
READ THIS
by Remi The Master on 2012/05/22 07:12
Ok so I love this game and I wanted to start a new round really fast so I just double tap but then instead of the play button popping up, the rare gem pops up:( I bought it on accident with the free 50,000 coins for signing up.I backed out then turned off my iPod and turned it back on hoping it wouldn't save me buying it but then when I go back to the app, my coins are gone but the rare gem isn't their anymore. You guys should put the rare gems in the shop because when we want to buy it, we will buy it and when we don't want to buy it, we don't buy it. Popcap I bet that you guys won't read this message because it's just one person but if you wont put my money back, can you at least give me what I bought on accident. Oh and an idea to make people want to but the rare gems is to make them permanent in a casual mode that stops when their are no more moves. I would actually buy those gems if you guys made them permanent. So to sum it up, fix my problem, make a casual game mode, and make rare gems permanent. You guys should make more rare gems and make them cheaper of they are going to be a one time use. I hope you guys listen to me!
Pros & cons
by jaw443 on 2012/03/11 06:31
Addicting fun app, well done, but for a long time, there is a glitch where scores over 500 don't count toward a gold medal, it's stuck on 8/10. So I find myself trying to slow down to avoid going over 500 because I'm working on 350, 400 & 450. There's no reward for higher scores. When I updated this app back in September or October, pop cap gave me free rare gems, lots of them, lasting a long time, making higher scores more frequent. When they ran out, if I want to keep using them, I had to pay--a lot, on an ongoing basis. Very clever of them, they must make a ton of money doing this. But there is something sleazy about exploiting people who are prone to addiction. It's getting to the point where I'm going to have to give it up because they started giving out rare gems almost every game & I just bought $20 worth a few hours ago, and it's charging me again. I'm sure I haven't played any more than usual so I think this is just more manipulation of addiction. Those who can afford to pay more than once a day will continue to be a gold mine for them. I need to leave it alone at this point. Great game, diabolical company. :-)
Addictive and annoying
by Tim Kloppenburg on 2013/04/14 19:01
I have been playing Bejeweled since my very first iPhone. Yes I love it! I now play bejeweled blitz almost every night! What I like is the faster pace if this version, most if the time I like the time limit of one minute. But what I hate about the game is you need to collect coins to get super powers. If you cannot win them you can always buy them (that is BS). Ok so you have enough coins, you spend the coins on a superpower (now scoring against the competition is skewed in you favor) you win at the top of the chart and then 2 days later the scores are reset! Basically if you bought the coins for the superpower and won, you just threw your money away! Like I said I play almost everyday. I just got over 200,000 without spending one coin. I've made it my goal to see how many coins I can earn. I will say that it is also annoying that the buttons to buy the superpowers are in the exact same place as the play button. I have accidentally spent a lot if coinage by pressing those stupid buttons, and once you press it, there is no way that I know of to cancel the superpower. You are stuck playing it.
Game is fun, update is glitchy
by Boothacus on 2015/06/13 04:34
The game is really good and you can get addicted but the most recent update is very buggy. Coin/gem wins in daily challenge doesn't seem to apply even if you've won your score doesn't apply to your general high score. I used to be able to play iTunes in the background but now it cuts out and I've had to restart my phone a few times to when the whole game seems to get wonky with sound. There is also a delay after you finish a game that keeps you stuck before it lets you play again. I am assuming that it's so you can see all the great play combs/possibilities that just showed up on the board now that the game is over but since I'm trying to play again anyway no need to entice me and delays my actual playing again. Very annoying. The rare gems can be really pricy but all of these criticisms aside, it's a very addictive game. And I play it all the time. The 'add coin' by watching short ads is a great feature since they get to give you the game for free and sell advertising and you get to get coins without having ads pop up distracting you while you're trying to play.
Still a favorite!
by totalRAH on 2014/12/31 19:46
I've been playing this game for a couple of years now. I really like the Free Coins option where I can watch ads to get free coins, and I'm really enjoying the Daily Challenge for its coin awards and for the variations in game play. Unlike other reviewers, I've not experienced any glitches. Everything works fine for me. Like other reviewers, I think the coin rewards payouts for play are way too small in proportion to the cost of the special gems. I can win 1,000 coins, but most of the gems are 40,000 coins or more... 40 games just to earn enough to play 1 gem 1 time is frustrating when the gems make the play so much more fun. Now that I can earn gems and coins through Daily Challenge and ads, it's much better, but the Daily Spin seems to have been diminished.. I used to earn 50,000 about once a month, but have only hit it once in the past 6 months. I've never hit all emeralds or all rubies, and only once ever hit all sapphires, which was awesome. Aside from not being able to earn coins quickly enough to play often with the gems, I have no complaints.
Not crazy about it!
by See3PO on 2011/12/21 19:42
I normally play Blitz more times daily than I can count... Started on my iTouch when I first bought the app as part of Bejeweled. When I got my iPad (prior to this new version) I could play the one I was used to in the smaller mode on my iPad as opposed to full screen. Then,at first, I tried the new one and found myself immediately going back to the original app as I have real problems playing it on the full screen. I am glad I did not have to purchase this new one as I would have immediately asked for a refund!!! WHY did you not let those of us who were used to and loved the original app to be able to still use it as it was originally?!?!?!? You forced the original app I bought to be updated and/or converted to include the new Blitz app within it. That just plain stinks in my book!!! I feel you are morally obligated to return the original app that I and countless others bought and paid for to be returned to its original form. One can always use the new app to access the free spin... Also -- why can one no longer see the weekly scores on the graph and the other friendly competitive pluses that are non-existent in the new one?!?!? In my book, you tried but it was NOT a good plan. Steve Jobs would not have been happy with this change!
I love this game but new version has issues
by Love4d2 on 2015/06/21 07:10
I love this game and love the daily challenges and the fact that they randomly give the bonus jewels I even play my personal friends on this game a lot but this is the second time in the last two weeks that it hasn't given me my winnings. Yesterday I used the new sea or trident jewel which was given as a free jewel... and at the end when u choose your jewel I chose the bottom corner and won the grand prize of 250k coins. Of course they did not give me my winnings. In fact I wasn't even credited for my game. It showed I won 1500 coins on top of the 250k but I didn't even get credit for that it was like I never even played the game. I occasionally buy coins for this game because I do like it so to win this much and not get them credited is upsetting. I tried to find a place to email or let tech support know and was put in an everlasting loop of faq's boards and no way of contacting support. Not happy and not sure if I will stay around too much longer if this doesn't get resolved it will be hard too because I have played this game from the beginning.
Awesome
by Mumof2gals on 2012/04/27 09:28
Such a time waster!! Bad bad bad thing to have on the iPad! I might need to go to Bejeweled anonymous!! This game is quick and fun and a great way to make time go by while waiting for something or another. It is addicting though and before you know it, one minute becomes 60! Edit April 27'12: the game is still fun and a few times I won a 25k, 50k and 100k jewel spin, whoohoo :) I play it everyday when I need to make time go by faster. Now and then the game can't log in, usually after an update, to FB. While I am ok with the occasional down time, it shouldn't happen each time an upgrade happens. It just doesn't look good on the developer part. So, while I am ok on/offline, I am removing one star for lack of checking or what not before releasing an update. I do have one request, can you make the abandon button not so close to the rare gem harvesting button? I realise that you want people to use the rare gem and make money from extra spins but it's a bit too easy to accidentally push - and there's no confirm button to use the rare gems, it just goes.
MOVE the BUTTON already
by Vivalasvegas2000 on 2012/12/08 00:46
UPDATE: Do not buy coins!! The special gem green button placement is a scam to burn your coins to get you to buy more. I have been playing this game for almost a year and there is a glitch where the game will pause or revert back to the old screen so you push the "buy a rare gem" green button rather than the "play" button. I think this is a purposeful scam because I have never "accidentally" purchased a cheaper gem. It only happens on the 75,000 coin gem. I do not think it is an accident! I have never bothered complaining on a review, but I think this is truly a scam and it aggravates me every time I feel ripped off. ORIGINAL POST: I love this game but refuse to give it more than one star until they MOVE the rare gem BUTTON. It takes too many games to earn coins just to have the game force you to use them because of their ridiculous placement of the button. I can't even let my kids play because they will always hit the big, green button and use my coins. And I refuse to pay for more coins since I feel swindled out of them every time I accidentally hit that button. Why cause such angst in your players who otherwise would be enjoying your game?? PLEASE fix this immediately!
Dumped it after 12 yrs of loyalty
by MonkeyBlue69 on 2014/06/27 15:11
I have played this game for over 12yrs. I have pd. for the app on several phones, have it on three pc's and now on my iPad. After this last update of blitz they are drowning my game with full page ads. I looked up the opt out and even if you DO choose that all it means is they will now send ads that do not pertain to your interests, but will drowned u with all kinds of ads so there is no way to stop it. I was in first place and had a lot of special gems saved not to mention all the time I spend playing this because it helps keep your mind quick also. I have removed the game for good after all these yrs. the last straw was this mornings pop ups started freezing my iPad and had to shut down and restart every time, enough is enough. Typical of big business, u have a good thing going and u throw everyone who made u right out the window. Good going Google. I bet people who spend a lot of money playing the game are not suffering with these pop ups. Just another way for them to weed out people who like the game for competition, meeting people and just fun. I am so done with on line live gaming. Leaves me more time on my other activities, good riddance.
My addiction has been cured by all the bad updates
by AnnB11261 on 2012/12/31 21:55
I've been addicted to this game for 2+ years. However, in trying to make the game "better", the last several updates have just made it so I don't even want to log in anymore. Starting from the top: 1) The game is taking longer and longer to load 2) It doesn't always recognize me/my friends, so I'm playing against a bunch of made up character names 3) When I've already taken my spin for the day I still have to go past this screen on subsequent plays of the day 4) If I'm lucky enough to finish a game without it crashing, the game crashes right at the end of the game and kicks me out. 5) I don't even bother purchasing any of the boosts, because when the game kicks me out, it doesn't remember that I have two more games left to play with those boosts. I'm spending less and less time with this game, and subsequently less an less likely to talk my Facebook friends into playing it, too. I did not upgrade to the new OS system because of all the bad news about it, but this shouldn't be the reason a perfectly good game has gone down the tubes.
Getting tired of little reward
by Luvinmayberry on 2014/12/31 22:08
I have been a long time player, way before fb began. Now with having to purchase everything instead of earning it by accomplishment I've become aggravated. I REFUSE to spend money on a game, I may as well flush money down the toilet. Plus playing the game burns up my battery on my phone fast! It's very buggy and has gotten so bad that when Apple did diagnostics on my phone they found this app was the issue at amassing great amounts of bugs on my phone to the point I had to replace my phone. Ready to delete. I'm fast losing interest when the money earned comes way slower then anything you can spend it on for a gem. I don't believe that buying my way to getting top score is even in my top 10,000 things to do. Don't waste your money, it's all a money ploy to the creators. Find a better game that won't try to rip you off, occasionally steals 10s of 1000s of coins at a time, and after watching these stupid ads for free coins I've been stuck in an unending loop of commercials only to find out it banked the coins then took every last one back! Waste of time!!
Where are my coins????
by Family top chef on 2015/11/10 05:07
I love this game. Have been playing it for years. It's fun, addictive and I love the challenge and competition against my friends. My issue is that a few weeks ago my coins that I had worked hard to earn over a long period of time went from nearly 6,000,000 down to ZERO!!! How does that happen? I didn't spend them, I just opened the app and they were gone like I had never played. I restarted the app, restarted my phone thinking and hoping it was a glitch but it has been over 3 weeks and nothing has been restored. I have continued to play and rebuild my coins but those should be added to the coins I had already worked hard for. Someone should look into this issue and restore the coins that I had rightfully earned previously! Short of that I would have given the app 5 stars. Yes it glitches occasionally and freezes up and needs to be restarted but I don't know if anything technological that doesn't occasionally do this. Small irritate toon for a great game. I would just like my coins back.
I thought it was my phone...
by thunderboomerz on 2013/12/24 04:01
I am so relieved to see that the game is crap and not my phone. This used to be the only game I would play and i got good at it. I'm telling anyone that has the old version not to update if they dont have to. Each time you update it gets a little slower and finally it just opens to the home page and crashes. I've gone to the Pop cap website and tried everything they suggested, nothing works. I really miss this game but it is what it is...I'll keep looking and find something to take its place. I'm giving it a rate of 1 star now but if you can get it to not crash...its a definite 5 star game. FIXX please and find a way to let everyone know its been fixed! so i came back and bugs have been fixed. ILuv This game! There are so many copycat games that just dont measure up. give it a shot ur sure to get hooked. the color is sharper and so are the graphics. i'm back in love! Bugs r Gone.
It's gotten to be no fun. It's a joke
by Bobbijo1219 on 2014/12/17 13:47
You know it's sad that you can't even get the blue or red gems unless you spend money on this I don't have the money to spend I just try to have some fun with it The gems are are very expensive it's making the game not fun to play anymore . I'm finding out from family and friends that's why they don't play the game. That is too expensive is no fun I think it's fun. Months ago either give you a five star rating now that I've seen how it works. December 14, 2014 I give up playing candy crush because I thought this was a thunder game but it's just gotten cost many points to get to your jams and we only get five or 600 per game I don't have the money to pay for your jams but I've talk to friends that won't play the game because it for these reasons and sometimes when you update your update your app you lose all your points and that's not right i'm going got one from the blaze it now you don't play that much anymore because 75,000 by one gym or whatever you want to call it i'll give it another month or so or less to find a different game right now I won't ask people to play this game
Bejeweled Blitz
by Tygresspv on 2015/06/09 16:35
Although the game is improved some, I have to play on my IPAD MINI because my tremors won't allow me to play well with the usual computer mouse. This being said, I find it frustrating that I can't get all the same "perks" as I did on FaceBook, using the computer. I can't share I my daily spin score, or invite others to join etc. Now, we have these mandatory periodic "upgrades" which really don't improve the game as much as they aggravate with interruptions with annoying advertisements. The ads wouldn't be so annoying , but they interrupt in the middle of playing the game & when I X it out, it takes me to the App Store instead of back to my game! Another frustration is this new "Daily Challenge". It has not been explained what it is or how it works, or or how to play. I love. this game, but all these interruptions & unnecessary ads & so-called upgrades are my daily challenge!
Redundant play
by Rayman12321 on 2012/09/05 05:38
I feel like I have to play over and over and over again to earn so little coin each game in order to attempt to beat the higher score. I find myself just waiting and hoping I get a good spin and win coin rather than playing to earn it. The game seems to lead you to want to purchase coin but instead for me it just makes me not want to play. It's agonizing playing and playing to earn next to nothing compared one one good free spin that will get you more in a 12 hour span then actually playing for 12 hours. It's a fun game, when you have coins. Otherwise it's like farming for it. Then when you pay for a rare gem and just don't get a good run, all that time you spent earning or waiting for the coins goes to nothing. I'd have to say 3 stars just due to the game itself being entertaining. Not a 4 or 5 because the competition of the game relies solely on having enough coin.
Great game but......
by JBalls12345678910 on 2013/06/26 05:23
First, when you purchase a multiplier gem to start the game EVERY time it starts out in the bottom three rows on the outside of the grid. Why would this matter? We've already purchased the gem and you're handicapping it!? Not once in probably over 200 games did it start out at the top or even in the middle of the game. I love this game and have played Bejeweled since I was in my college dorm almost 10 years ago but there are certain nuances that I am not thrilled with since I started updating a few months ago. The daily spin or if spins are purchased there seem to be more low amounts, and the spinners land on them much more frequently, with every update. The high coin values of the fun special gems haven't budged but the payouts have. Maybe tier the spins with only 2 like gems so they aren't all 2500 which is terrible to land on. Or change up the payouts. There are a lot of low but only one really high maybe put some more in the middle.
Sorry I updated!
by Dot402 on 2014/07/12 00:04
Do not update...you loose everything! This version is not worth your time. I can no longer play with Facebook friends on my iPad. :-( bring back the old version! I would give it no stars if I could...robbers...wish I could get back time and money invested. Lawyers should be contacted. Support help is NO help! Here we go again. Does not even let me write my own review. Every time I update, I cannot play on my iPad, only on my phone. I know they can fix these problems because it was fixed before. Very frustrating . I agree with the person who started this review...you are ripping us off! Keep it up and you won't be #1 for long. I hope someone reads this....😢😢😢😢please HELP!!! Are you out there??? And now nothing but full page ads that I have no interest in and still crashes when it comes time to use my boosts for second game... Still a one star... Fix the game and you get five and not until! Please stop these full page ads. All they do is kick me out of my game. And whenever I buy boosts, I get kicked out before I can take advantage of them, resulting in loss of coins....
Getting worst with each release
by LDaudelin on 2012/07/26 21:31
Is it me or is this game getting worst with each release? Now, when the app is terminated because it's been in the background, when you come back and it reloads, it completely forget about your score or your friends' score. It doesn't' even remember you were connected through Facebook. So, you have to login again through Facebook (which is another prime example of a lame, slow application) and then when you come back in the app, it doesn't remember your last score! It doesn't even remember the score of your friends. Fortunately (or maybe by accident), when you play a game and come back after the game to the main menu, your previous highest score for the week is restored. But no score is showing for any of your friends. It is also very obvious that this app is just there in the App Store to make money. I don't have a problem with that but when it's becoming too obvious, I lose interest quickly. I think people are rating this app too quickly and way too high. It was a fine game a year ago but PopCap is completely destroying it.
Inconsistent scoring & buying gems really costs
by SchmutzieCat on 2013/12/24 01:25
The game itself is fun and challenging BUT it is wildly inconsistent in how many points you can win in any given game (without buying any gems). One game you may win 300,000+ points and then not get over 25,000 or 50,000 points for the next 10 or more games, and you are making the same/similar combinations of matching jewels. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason behind the scoring, and nothing is written down in the rules to explain how points are earned. It is also very frustrating that one must generally spend between 10,000 and 75,000 coins to purchase a gem (depending on the gem), but the most coins one is likely to earn back playing with the purchased gem is far less than the purchase price (perhaps as much as 5,000 coins). This makes purchasing coins a losing proposition and not really worth it. The game would be much better if players had a chance to make back what they spend on a gem when they buy the gem.
Needs updates
by swiftcraze on 2011/12/17 04:48
The new graphics are pretty amazing for the retina display. The colors are crisp and vibrant. The gems are pretty cool. The casino style "spin for coins" was a nice touch as well. Before the update i was glued to this game. But since the upgrade to the separate Bejeweled Blitz, not so much. It's very slow. Like, incredibly slow! The movement on the game pieces is seriously delayed and to get a high score you absolutely need specialty gems. Which will cost you a lot of coins. Even though you get the free bonus spin for coins, it's now impossible to accumulate coins. It seriously takes for ever. In my opinion they did it so you would run out of coins quickly and have to pay for the coins instead of earn them during game if you wanted to play. The update also removed your personal stats. That was the worst part of the update I thought. I was addicted to getting all my star levels to lv 5 gold and competing vs my friends stats. In Essenes the game is pretty much horrendous now. Unless you update it, I won't be playing much anymore. But they already got my money so I guess they don't really care!!
Play with caution
by bridget330 on 2015/10/16 01:58
Let me begin by saying that I've played this game for years and enjoy playing it. However, Apple i-tunes robs you when buying coins. They offer a special but after you agree to purchase it for one price, they charge you full price. They also have a new thing if you play it on your computer. A pop up asks you to purchase coins in a slick little way that you just click yes to get it out of the way, until you realize that it just charged you money for coins. I've contacted the makers of the game and they referred me back to I-tunes. It is next to impossible to contact them for any reason. It seems to me that the maker of the game has responsibility to make sure that we are charged the correct amount without getting ripped off, but they play the innocent victim. I have been charged $65 for coins. "I know, I'm the crazy one because I continue to play." I don't think I should have to stop playing because they lack integrity. Anyway. Proceed with caution.
Past Posters Plz Read!!!
by Heath.. on 2014/07/24 17:30
Ok so I hope that people who have posted in the past read this. I've seen a lot of complaints about accidentally buying rare gems when hitting the play button twice to play faster. I you hit it twice and accidentally bought a rare gem (which I have done as well) them you should see the page to buy other special gems as well before you actually play. All you have to do is hit the back arrow and go back to the main page and it will cancel the gem. Hope this helps! Ok now for my review. Like everyone has said, this game is very addictive (and annoying ;)) and fun. It links to Facebook and I've stopped playing it on the computer. I've found using this app easier. The only reason I only gave it 3 stars was because the latest update brought pop up ads in between games every so often. It didnt do this before and I'm hoping the low rating will get the attention of developers and try get rid of the ads.

by wicked witch of the west on 2012/09/11 05:39
Just wanted to say, I'm a pretty careful consumer. I don't like to download updates until I read the reviews and make sure everything is working correctly. And in many cases, i'll simply forgo the update or delete the app altogether if the update reviews are less than favorable. Well, I read the reviews and waited and then downloaded anyway because I LOVE this game and it wouldn't allow me to play at all unless I updated-which in itself was pretty frustrating. I guess I'm lucky that I'm still able to play and the app doesn't crash, as I've seen in other reviews, but I'm highly disappointed that my score vs. my FB friends has been the same for the last 3 weeks. Granted, it is higher than theirs, but I kinda like competing on a week by week basis. This just isn't fun. And there's no telling what they see my score as being this week. I'm also disappointed that this hasn't been corrected, or even addressed on the FB page (so far as I've seen). Is this something I just have to get used to? Because it kinda feels like this game has lost all it's flavor as a result of the update.
Do not update.
by Joe_in_boston on 2012/06/11 00:20
Agree with reviewers who thought this game was better before when you could use one booster offline without the coin system. Now, the point system is a total scam because they require way too many coins for each booster, and come on, it is one minute of play time! You don't earn enough coins to play with boosters unless you are willing to pay for coins, so the only realistic option is to play without boosters. And you still have to click through several fields to circumvent all the boosters and gems and what not, in order to play again...another one minute game. Ridiculous. I also don't like that it's impossible to understand the scoring system. You have a sense of how good you're doing, but that correlates poorly with your final score, and it is impossible to develop a strategy short of go faster! So while this game is pretty fun on its own merits, the application producers have ruined it. My solution: erase from my iPad and avoid wasting time with an app that partly entertains me and partly irritates me.
Fun but be warned
by Kouth on 2013/04/21 19:49
This is a fun game, that can be very addicting. It is also fun to make goals for yourself in gaining coins. The problem with this game is that occasionally you are offered an option to spend many coins on a special game enhancement. The genius thing here is that when these people designed the game, they designed the 'ok' option perfectly, right above the 'no thanks' button. There has been many times when I have blown 50,000 coins against my will. Very frustrating and frankly I always feel like someone is stealing from me when it happens. The idea that they designed the 'ok' button right next to the 'no thanks' button in a way that causes people to accidentally click it. In turn, causing general players to go to the 'spin' section and spend more money on the game. It really should be fixed, but it hasn't been because they like tricking the public into more spending.
THIS GAME IS A RIP OFF
by Sbanhagel on 2015/10/18 04:09
Do not use this game!!!! Rips you off on coins you actually buy!! Not only that, they tell you that you get a discount on a new boost and it charges you full price!! It hit me for over $75. Ok I let it go the first two times and on the third try... I went to purchase additional coins because the spinner is an absolute JOKE!!! You will NEVER HIT THE BLUE DIAMONDS!!! Took another chance to buy coins and it did give me the correct amount. Didn't play again for almost a month and started seeing fraudulent charges on my credit card. They ripped me off $45 a week out under some credit check company. The last laugh was on them! Once the proper paperwork was filed and my bank took over, we changed 100% of my account information. New account numbers and credit card numbers were issued. They kept being greedy for their weekly $45 and finally got busted!! They were using credit card checks of all things to make it happen!!! If career criminals would use their intelligence for legal work, they would be considered the upper class in society!! What a shame!!!!
Curious
by LisaH123 on 2014/07/24 16:39
I have played this game for years. It's one of the only games I have played almost daily. I have completed every maximum level you can. I am Rank 182. Nothing left to challenge me there. However the keystones keep me playing... Unless.. The only keystones that pop up are to clear a bunch of gems. That's boring so I don't play as often. I only use coins to obtain a high score... After that it seems pointless to use any coins to obtain a keystone where the payoff is substantially less that the number of coins it would take to complete the task. The game used to have a chat feature where I could message my friends when we played. That disappeared. I think there should also be an option to share your current coins with a friend. There should be more keystones to complete for tokens... I do not need XP points.
Frustrating but addicting
by Mod011000 on 2013/03/21 02:39
Great game and wonderfully addicting! However, there two things that frustrates me to the point I'm going to delete the app and find something else to fulfill my boredom. The first thing is the Daily Spin has become less than amusing. I'm not winning anything over than 10k and that us not very often. Before I would earn more allowing to purchase different jewels. Now I have to play longer just to earn enough coins. The last and most frustrating of all is the placement of the offer to purchase the jewels. After my game is complete I have the option to play again or purchase a special jewel that will help me gain more coins. Well on at least 4 occasions when I've try to bypass the purchasing of the jewel and just play the next game, I end up purchasing the jewel which deducts coins from my earnings. Therefore I can't save enough coins to get the big jewel to purchase. Any suggestions for a nothing addicting game, but this time without the headaches...
Additictive, Fun, but Occasionally Annoying
by Wyatt the Odd on 2014/03/06 01:28
This is not the app to use if you expect gemstones to shoot out of your iPhone. That doesn't happen here. Ever. For that, you'll need to download Magic Genie Lamp and rub vigorously. Please note that you must have also installed "Living in Fantasyland" into your wetware. Given that, who is this game for? Why, anyone who wants to kill a few minutes without the risk of "just one more level" during an executive meeting. Also, it's ideal for anyone with failed lapidary dreams. Why? Because, as the name says, you're blowing up precious gems. And, you've only got a minute before your horde is replaced by the top score screen. This is a game that seems to genuinely want you to rack up a massive score even if you don't use real money to buy the in-game coins. Each night, they give you a pull at the slot machine. And, the game will show you possible moves if you're stuck - it just won't show you the best move. The latest update seems to have geeked a couple of things. It keeps trying to open my phone's Game Center despite me disabling it. Also, after the trying the slot machine, you have to wait for the game to decide that you've read the message about when your next pull is available before it'll let you out. I've accidentally bought more "rare" gems because of this glitch than those I've bought on purpose.
Addicting, Beautiful, Heart-Pounding GamePlay
by Kurt Truk on 2013/04/09 22:23
I've played just about every version of Bejeweled and Bejeweled Blitz is my favorite. It's the best of the best in this style of game. Here are my suggestions and problems that need to be corrected before I'll go up to Five Stars, It's Great: As of the last two months gameplay has become sluggish. I'll be blazing along and then all of a sudden the game slows, my input is not recognized and on more than one occasion this has prevented me from hitting the coveted 1,000,000 point benchmark. So very frustrating when that happens. I'm sure you understand my frustration. This is an issue that has occurred only recently, within the last eight weeks or so. Something happened that caused this and needs to be addressed. So until then, user be ware. Make it easier to earn coins, please. A pull on the slot machine once a day and the few coins earned during gameplay are not enough to buy gems and upgrades. Because of this it is necessary to purchase coins to do so. It's great you have specials for certain gems and upgrades throughout the week and even a happy hour, but that's not enough. Level the playing field between those who can afford the coins and those who rely on gameplay to do so. It's just not fair. I look forward to future updates of this good game.
Latest update killed the game on ipad 1.
by Annalizzie on 2015/01/18 06:59
I was forced to update this game on my original ipad (that I use primarily to play this game...or I used to). It would not let me delay the upgrade and it would not let me play without it. When I tried to update, it said I needed to first update my OS to 6.0 which the original ipad can't support. (The OS is as high as allowed on this ipad.) It then asked if I would like a lesser Blitz upgrade that my ipad could handle. Again, I had to say yes, could not play otherwise. Well, no matter, I can't play the game with the supposed "upgrade" either. I had over 2 million points that just disappeared. If I try to do anything, I am bounced out of the game. Please, let us slowpokes keep our old ipads and old versions of apps. This is annoying beyond belief, and why I usually don't "upgrade" games because they often come with all sorts of problems. A similar thing happened with a previous upgrade of Blitz, but that subsequently was fixed. Before this, it was a fun game that I played daily. BUMMER!
Please let older iPads play the previous version!
by Blitzless on 2015/01/24 03:37
I have been addicted to this game for years and built my coins up to nearly 10,000,000. Last week I was forced to try to upgrade to the newer version of Blitz. I didn't think my old iPad could support it, but figured if it couldn't I would still be able to play the older version that I came to love. When I tried to click on Blitz again I was given the option of " do not upgrade now". It just ejected me from the game. I tried several times with no satisfaction. I really would appreciate a fix that would let me click on the "not now" option and reload my old version and keep the coin bank. I don't need brighter gems I just need the old version since I'm not buying a new iPad just to play this game.
Awesome idea!!!!
by Candas Fields on 2012/03/07 22:06
Love this game!!! Dont enjoy the fact that sometimes when I get 50k I get 500 coins or sometimes get 200k and still get 500 coins......I know you can buy coins but not everyone wants to buy them all the time. And you should get more coins for getting 200k. So I think if you get 50k, you get 500 coins, 100k a 1000, 200k 2000 coins and so on. Even if you got a million, you would only get 10,000 points. Just get rid of the coins on the jewels, keep the "2X, 3X, etc" for additional points, that way we don't get bored playing all the time just to get to the "Phoenix prism". That's my favorite part of the game, is when I get that and add three more things in my boxes!!! Its rock and roll time when that happens!!! Please please please consider this!!! Oh and to confirm some stuff already mentioned......my Facebook check in is fine, and yes, the 500k medal doesnt get added...... Thanks
Not an improvement over previous version
by Sun Quest on 2013/02/22 05:37
Won't save settings when I turn off music volume and disable auto-renewal of boosts. If I completely exit out of bejeweled blitz so it is not running in the background, then the settings revert back to defaults. I uninstalled and reinstalled this version and that did not help. I don't like auto-renewal always defaulting to on. Please fix as this is annoying. Update: After playing new version since installing it yesterday I can honestly say I see it as being less favorable than I previously thought. It is SLOW! Very very slow. It went from the gems falling fast to me being able to say "click click click" as they drop. This is on my iPhone4. I was getting around 800k, and now the best I can get is around 500k. I will not be using any more coins or buying any spins to get coins until it is fixed. I am downgrading the rating to 1 star. Wish I could give it zero instead as this game is no longer fun to play due to the jerky dropping of the gems. I really wish I hadn't upgraded.

by Fishing Creek on 2015/09/18 09:14
Still loving this game after all these years! Struggled for a LONG time to figure out the best way to play. This is what I've learned: Forget the points & concentrate on earning free coins. I play for long periods of time just earning free coins. Once I have about 8 or 900,000 coins, then I play for points by buying the most powerful boosts as many times as I can afford in order to be the 1st place player in my group. It's not so hard to accomplish that when I can buy as many boosts as I need. I stay in 1st place for the 6 day game period. After that I take more weeks to bring up the number of coins in my 'bank' so that I can buy the boosts I need to power myself back up to 1st place again. Even bringing myself up to 5th place is exciting. Since I have discovered this way to play, I'm enjoying Blitz more than I ever though possible 😄
Bejeweled Blitz
by GameDweeber on 2013/06/09 01:19
I love this game so much, but I'm kind if tired o the constant bugs that it has. One, for example, is not opening right away. Also, it hasn't been saying my high score for the week. And I'm kind of ticked that, for whatever reason, I has 50,000 coins total after one round and then the next, I have about 13,000. I mean, what happened to all my coins? I didn't use them on anything. They just disappeared. Not looking at the bugs and my complains, I think that the game is overall pretty good. It keeps me entertained for hours in the car for long car trips, or just entertained around the house when I have nothing to do. It's a lot of fun to play with my friends as well. Like at a party, my friends and I can pass my iPod around, playing this, seeing who can get the highest score. All in all, it's a great game. But please, fix the bugs.
Facebook login Difficulties
by STC's Eagle Scout on 2014/08/20 00:14
For over 4 months and 2 updates I have Currently been unable to play Bejeweled through Facebook on the app. Bejeweled will not recognize my Facebook account to play the online version after 3 updates. It doesn't even load to able to type my password. Each time it will say searching & reach the point to say sorry can not load Facebook your account at the moment please try again latter. Well I thought it was just a one or two time issue but unfortunately it has been doing this for an estimated over 4 months I have tried to long in every other day to play but would not allow me in. I was not sure if a new update would be made soon so I have been just waiting till the latest update was available to download. I like this game a lot and play it almost every day. I have had no troubles playing the offline version of Bejeweled.
What's up with this update!!!!????
by TommyG48 on 2015/11/12 14:14
Absolutely love playing this game. It's used up a lot of time while waiting for family at their appointments. Great game to play and enjoy many hours of playing this game ... However with every update they force on all of us this game became more n more unreliable. This last update just won't download n install and now all the close to two million coins are apparently lost n the game won't even open. I agree w Kris495 I believe who said it keeps returning to the download page. A frustrating loop that's driving me nuts. Either fix it or I'll find another developer to follow also n will tell ALL my friends about this company's failure to resolve issues for players who have been on this game for years. Accomplishments are all lost and there were A LOT.... Gone
STINGIEST GAME EVER - but can be the best
by Jmar7817 on 2012/06/20 05:48
I've been playing bejeweled blitz for nbover two years now and it is by far my favorite game I've ever played on any platform. However, the game is designed by money hungry thugs who make you pay absurd prices to unlock the games most fun features which make the game unique, and of course higher scores. THE PRICES OF THE COINS AND OUTCOME OF THE SPINS ARE OUTRAGEOUS relative to the prices of the boosts let alone rare gems, let alone using both at once. no one should even have to buy coins but for whatever reason the max coins you can get in a game is 1400. a single game can cost up to 80,000. that is robbery. the BEST deal you can get without promotions is just over a million coins for $10. you could use a million in 13 games aka 15 minutes! Not trying to get into the spins and the consistent low winnings whether you buy them or not, but at the current costs of the boss and gems, which should be free anyways and probably should each have their own high score leaderboard because the game becomes completely different with them, the spin jackpot should be 10 million minimum with 25,000 the lowest possible winnig amount. anything less doesn't even buy you three minutes worth of playing the game it should be offered in the first place. talk about not caring about your customers. Here the game is free but if you wanna play it without any restrictions it's gonna be $40 an hour. THIEVES!!
Bummed after years of fun :-(
by JameyWeare on 2015/11/22 10:18
This is been a staple of games that I have played on my iPhone for years. Easily what I would consider one of my top 10 favorite games for killing a couple minutes while in line or something similar. I have seen all the various iterations of monetization be installed over the years and none of them really bothered me. Micro transactions were fine, and even the pop up ads that came up every once in a while we're OK. Today I got two ads in between three games Both of those ads had audio and I could not skip. My iPhone was muted and all of the volume for the app was all the way down, but I still got blasted about Cookie Crunch or something. Please just put up a paid version in the app store that does not give ads. I'll check back in a couple months to see if there's any improvement. If not then I'll sadly delete it and go on to something else.
Addicting, fun but frustrating!
by G-Goil on 2012/07/24 05:19
This game is fun to kill time with. Very addicting. Very challenging always trying to beat my own score. But frustrating as all get up! I used to waste coins on gems and boosts.....until I found out that I spent more in coins and never really boosted my score at all. I get more coins/points by playing without 'em! Also, I noticed what seemed like every other day, my score would go down and I'd have to keep playing to get back to the high scores I had left off with. What's up with that?! Just now I got to spin for coins and after doing so, it said I had 15 more hours until the next spin. I accidently shut off my iPad and when I turned it back on to play the same game, it let me spin again in less than 10 minutes!! Only this time it went back to my old coinage amount and gave me a lower one then the first! Whatever! Has bugs...but it's still fun.
No more score building "Last Hurrays"
by Shaazie on 2013/03/14 19:34
Has this happened to anyone else: I acquired one million plus coins only by the free daily spins and earning coins and not buying the special gems or using game boosts. Since achieving the million plus coins, the "Last Hurrah" no longer happens... No more falling gems matching up and increasing the score, etc when un exploded gems are detonated after time is up, during the supposed last hurrah. I know the game has changed because I've played it long enough to know what the game did before the one million coins and now. The difference is readily noticeable. Also, I keep I unchecking the box to send anonymous game stats, and I play a game, go back into Help, and the box is checked again, to allow stats to be sent. I used to like this game, but not now. Is this how PopCap forces people to spend coins, to get high scores I can no longer achieve before earning one million coins? Before this, I actually had a score of 204,000 without using any helps, and now I'm lucky if I can get 50,000.
A step forward and 3 steps backward!
by Monket on 2011/12/11 09:48
This game was a 5 star before, now it's down to 3. On the Plus side. We got better graphics that look great with the Retina Display, we got also the Daily Spin (FINALLY!) but sometimes doesn't give you all the coins for all your friends that have the app on FB, just for the ones that have played that week. Bad! On the bad side... Mmhh... Where can I start? Ok, pretty much everyone else has said about the game being slower and therefore scores have decreased. About the scores, well, it takes time to get used to, but if you play it well enough your scores will improve back to your old average. I have scored a few 150k's without buying power-ups, but yes, I think the game would be better if it had the old speed. Gone is the explosion at the end of the game. Without it, feels like something is missing, that you need... Closure? Like the game ends all of a sudden. It feels incomplete. Most important thing missing is the levels!!!! WHERE ARE THEY? That's one of the better parts of playing it on FB. Please BRING THAT BACK! I have the feeling that they rush the game out the door. Why? We were happy before and didn't expected (nor wanted) an update. One last thing, I tried to play the old one from either the Bejeweled 2 App or from Facebook and it's gone! It brings back this unfinished piece of software!
Love this game!
by Pisst off even more on 2015/08/27 18:34
I have been playing this game for many years. I have had a few problems but overall not bad. My suggestion is that on the daily challenge you should be able to get your points added to your main game. You can get more coins that way. The other problem is the daily spin. Like I said I have been playing for years and have only gotten the blue gems only one time. I know if the blue gem starts off I lost. My cousin and I compete for first place spot and she always beats me.😛 love this game. The new sun star is way over priced, it makes a nice score but too pricey to get very often. I have bought coins when I can on sale so would be nice if you combined our daily challenge score with our main score as mentioned above. Thanks for the great game hope you're listening to all the followers out there.😉
Darn good
by ChristopherDrum on 2011/12/23 15:28
But jewel movement feels sluggish (iOS 5 on iPhone 4; very few open apps), and touch events seem to get misinterpreted frequently. I drag a jewel left, only to have it swap in a different direction. So attempts to strategically make a power gem can be foiled. I appreciate that the retina graphics are used on the iPad version now as their "native" interface, but it is still just a scaled up iPhone app. Can't rotate devices to play in landscape. And overall it just seems telling that I've never broken 350,000 on iOS devices, but quickly broke 500,000 on my desktop system. If this is an artifact of touch input vs mouse superiority or an artifact of how Bejeweled is implemented on iOS, I really can't say. Glad it is free, but was bummed that my previously purchased game has been killed and replaced with another pay-for app. Not really sure what the tactic there is.

Lots of Ads, and now Instability
by Accipiter on 2016/02/07 01:45
This game used to be great, but it slowly started to be overrun with advertising - from Progressive ads popping up in-game, to the video ads, to the constant bombardment of "buy more coins" popups. And as of the latest update, the game now crashes constantly. A year or two ago this game would have been worth your time. Not anymore.
Latest revision shuts down in mid game and does not credit you the coins/jewel spent!!!
by Creynal on 2016/02/06 16:25
What the heck?!? If the app is going to shut down in mid game, the least it can do is credit me the coins or jewel spent in the playing of it!!!
Can't stay away!
by RLancia3 on 2016/02/06 10:25
Love the game and have been playing for years. Updates always keep it fresh. How about more levels?! I'm maxed at 182!
Starting to tick me off
by DevilishKPint on 2016/02/04 16:26
When I play the daily bonus, I have a problem if somebody calls me. The game will pop back up for a second in paused mode, but immediately shut itself off. Basically wherever I was in the game gets lost, and I end up trying to play again and costing me more coins, as well as the lost score. Twice now I have had all three stars and when I get a call the game forgets its place, and when I go back in I have to replay the game at another cost. Really making me mad.
Did not receive the coins I purchased

Greedy Scum
by Matty Pos on 2016/02/03 14:22
This game just blows. You only get a minute to play each time and it ruins the fun. Everything costs so much, that you'll need to spend real money to do anything. Screw this new type of money gameplay.

Weird things

Buying and not receiving

Bejeweled out of special
by Minion2488 on 2016/02/02 05:12
I have purchased a couple of times now. I don't have Facebook and don't want to sign up for one either. But when you purchase 270k of tokens an get 3 rare gems with it, then you click it. When you store them and come back to the app. They are not there, even if you have one them on the daily challenges you have to use them then and their. I am tried of being cheated out of things in this game.
Great time killer
by cyber553 on 2016/02/01 15:48
Tons of fun, great when you only have a minute or two to kill. Popcap has done great work improving the stability of this game recently and it now runs beautifully and no longer crashes. Thanks for the hard work guys! Lastly, I want to add an opinion: I really don't like the daily challenges where you have to earn 3M+ points to win the grand prize. I admit, it's fun to play with fewer colors and crazy power-ups, but I usually leave those games feeling empty because no matter how well I play, the only thing that really matters in determining what I win is how lucky I get in the End Game madness, which has nothing to do with skill! Hoping these type of daily challenge games will be removed (or at least happen with reduced frequency) in the future.
Too many ads now
by M0mmaof2 on 2016/02/01 02:46
Ugh
Hate the ads!!!
by BJD1201 on 2016/01/31 23:42
I used to really enjoy this game. But the full page pop up ads are very frustrating. And the video ads are awful. How embarrassing when the seriously LOUD music begins!! Is there no way to mute those sounds?
Get Rid of the Game Center pop-up!
by OnePilot on 2016/01/31 17:28
Blitz has too many ad pop-ups to begin with! The pop-ups for Game Center are just annoying! Make a config-option to opt-out of the stupid game center! If that's not possible, don't ask people more than twice about game center -- no means no
Ads, ads, & more ads
by FlemingFamily2 on 2016/01/31 06:42
I understand this is a "free" game and I didn't mind the little ads that would pop up now and then but now there are video ads that are SUPER loud and pop up ALL THE TIME. Deleting the app from my phone.
Updates
by Simutton on 2016/01/30 02:29
My free spin does not work and the challenge doesn't work. Hard to compete with anyone if you don't have any coins. Takes the fun out of the game.now my free coins don't work. Bummer. All the fun has been taken away. Please fix this if you can.
Won't open
by danjodi on 2016/01/30 01:52
Since the last update game will not open, just closes. In order to fix was told to uninstall, than reinstall, except that erases all the coins I have, about 4,500,000. I will probably uninstall game permanently.
ADS!
by psm67lh on 2016/01/29 23:49
I have had this game for years even paid for the ad free version now the ads are annoying and out of control
Where are the daily challenges
by TriggerMike151 on 2016/01/29 21:58
My daily challenges aren't working at all
Excellent game for everyone
by SalmanLemon8 on 2016/01/29 13:14
Anyone can play this game and it is very addictive. I really love it. Very good updates.
Used to love this game
by Dana1024 on 2016/01/29 12:18
But I rarely win big on the free spin. When I try to select 3 boosts, the game states that I don't have enough coins. I currently have 19,100 coins but the 3 boosts together only cost 13,000. Did you program the game to use the new math? Because the first 3 boosts cost 6000, 3000, and 4000 coins respectively and when I add these up, they add up to 13,000 so it doesn't make sense as to why 19,100 coins isn't enough to buy these boosts Also, do not purchase any of the deals that pop up, I purchased a deal to get coins and a couple of rare gems when the game crashed. When I got back on, I got the coins but it didn't give me gems. Customer service was no help at all

Being ruined by ads
by cgiblets on 2016/01/27 06:02
Love the game, but when the loud, unstoppable ads come on, I won't play. If they remain, I won't.
Crashes and I lose the items I purchased
by goodgirlgracie on 2016/01/27 02:16
Still crashing and losing my boosts. I'll buy a boost or earn one and then in the middle of the game the app will crash. So I earn coins and you pretty much just take them back. I'll buy boosts then the game will crash and I'll lose the boosts and/or the discount for gems for future games. Please fix so this can be a 5 star game again. ************************************ Don't like the new checkerboard for the background, hard to see the board. This was a 5 star game for me till this recent update.
Bad update
by Jgurlw4 on 2016/01/27 02:06
Daily challenge is not workin at all. Luv the game but tiered of all the problems
Fix it!!! Been broken over a month
by KatieKeith90 on 2016/01/26 23:12
Fix it!!! For over a month it hasn't worked! I've lost so many coins from items and boosts because if I can even get the game to work it freezes and crashes mid game! Daily challenge doesn't work and now items don't work! I've tried logging in and out and uninstalling and reinstalling which made it worse!
KEEP LOOKING
by Keeperofthegate on 2016/01/26 15:49
Enjoyed the originals. I win coins on the slot machine-50k yesterday, I only got 5000. Happens all the time. Could someone tell me how the heck to play poker? Yesterday BLITZ offered free "try again"? Then I switched back to Blitz and 5000 coins were taken out per retry. That's cheating app Dept. Last gripe. I got a score over 600, yes cheap thrills, but when the leader board reset my #1 score for week was gone but everyone else's stayed. NOT HAPPY
It's good but...
by MissSara412 on 2016/01/26 14:01
Like the game a lot but it's to hard to get coins. It pretty much sets you up so you have to buy them to be able to use any of the good powers.
Really pitiful
by mikee219 on 2016/01/26 10:35
The game works on Facebook. Why can't you get it to work on a brand new iPhone? Update after update after update and you refuse to fix the problem that everyone is complaining about. The daily challenge doesn’t download. The items that make playing fun don’t download. It’s an Internet connection problem, the app claims but I am streaming live content in HD using this Internet connection. I have the latest iPhone with the latest iOS and an old iPad and the problem is the same on both of them. Why don’t you listen to your users? You’ve ruined an otherwise good game. The one star is well earned!!!
Video ads
by Playing in Las Vegas on 2016/01/26 06:43
I used to enjoy these games. The video ads are over the top. I have the sound turned off on the games. The video sounds are on full blast! One of the video ads was for a tv show. The ad was inappropriate! Too sexy, too much for a game! You guys went over the top and these ads are out of line! SHAME ON YOU!!!
Still having problems!!!
by Sheba38 on 2016/01/25 16:26
After sending you my initial complaint, I was able to play the game briefly. First the points that I originally earned, before downloading iOS8 are gone. Second, the game just shut down and I have to click on the app to continue playing. This gets annoying after awhile. Please help me. I did enjoy this game before iOS8. Help!!! I updated to iOS9 and I am having problems with the game making purchases with my coins without my permission to do so. Please correct this error. If I have to give up this game I will. I hope not to but if push comes to shove I will. Thank you for time and consideration.
Roll it fairly
by Gagoute on 2016/01/24 08:17
From the beginning it used to give free coin 250-500. Now never 3 ruby or 3 jade because I started buying. You not paying the more I'll buy now is 99 cents. Not like before. You open my eyes. People are not as stupid.
I love it, but Kanga Ruby Levels 2 and 3 should be added.
by antonioflowers056 on 2016/01/24 07:10
A lovely game, but one thing, I wish the Kanga Ruby Levels 2 and 3 are available on mobile.
Don't bother.
by Greithoth on 2016/01/23 18:25
Used to be a fun game to play. It's now just annoying with the forced redirects and repetitive pop ups. It's turned into nothing but a time wasting money grab.
Crashes with the new update
by Some time user on 2016/01/23 17:46
You try to do the daily spin but it stops and tells you you have a 'network error' and to check your connection. Also, you ever notice you can never get 3 blue stones on the spin? Why is that?
ADS!!!!!
by Monkeymikew3 on 2016/01/23 01:26
Was one of my favorite games to kill time. Not now.... Way to many ads now and video ads that can't be skipped. Wth!!!
Auto videos are not good
by Genonichols on 2016/01/22 23:49
Do not like the idea that all of a sudden, a video starts playing.

Bejeweled
by sln phone on 2016/01/22 18:48
I have been playing this game for about 5 years and have yet to ever see three blue diamonds on the free spin! I agree with some of the other reviewers, this game is getting harder to play. It is as if you are forcing players to "buy" the tokens. Never had ads before either.
Crashes
by Janits1 on 2016/01/22 10:33
Game has been crashing whenever I try to open daily challenge. Daily challenge is constantly loading and never loads. When I click on it, game shuts off.
Crashing
by Jeh32 on 2016/01/22 08:27
It keeps crashing and wasting my boosts and rare gems! Not ok! 😡😡😡
Rude interrupting
by Michnana on 2016/01/22 01:47
I do not understand why the Apple Ap store is constantly interrupting my games. If I wanted to Ho yo the Ap store and get a new game I would. Please stop this rude activity. I love Bejeweled Blitz but I am ready to delete this and a few other games.
Used to be my favorite
by JennyJ79 on 2016/01/21 23:37
I have been playing this game daily for a long time, but lately, bonus games pop up and deduct points when I haven't even tried to do it, very, very aggravating! Do not think I will continue to play!
Crashy McCrashy app
by Monkeysonfire on 2016/01/21 22:36
Not cool!! Can't believe there's still crashing, how long have you been programming?! Might get two games in between crashes..
Only one saving grace
by moondog_42 on 2016/01/21 16:57
I've had this game for years and I think it just keeps getting unplayable with each update. The only thing that stops me from deleting it is that over time I've amassed 5,000,000 coins and I hate to just drop them and walk away. The game play is still fun when the game doesn't crash. But it crashes every other time I open it so my enjoyment is only about 50%. And the ads went from mildly annoying to pestering to OMG I AM GOING TO PERSONALLY DRIVE TO THIS COMPANY'S HEADQUARTERS AND MAKE THEM WATCH THESE ADS CLOCKWORK ORANGE STYLE. At that point I just close it and remove it from memory and refuse to play again until the next daily challenge comes up. The only thing that makes it worthwhile is the daily challenge. If that goes away again, I will definitely be removing this game.
Bejeweled Blitz
by Woodeck on 2016/01/21 11:17
Was a fun, enjoyable game until most recently when all the rare gems all disappeared and there is nothing to enhance points, thus have stopped playing entirely. And the support link does not work.
Update
by Netty's Toy on 2016/01/21 09:08
Update issues? I had a lot of "coins" 500,000ish did a update on my iPad an went down to "0" afterwards. Is there a retrieval?
please refund now
by VH1 - yes!! on 2016/01/20 17:54
i purchased a rare gem and the game closed on me , never got the chance to play. the game took my money and ran 🙁
Used to be great
by Tia426 on 2016/01/20 01:37
I used to love this game and the updates that came with it. Now not only has it deleted itself but my progress was totally wiped out!!!!!!! I'm not buying anymore coins and going through this process of accumulation again!!! PLEASE FIX!!!!!
Bummer
by Jordibrody on 2016/01/19 13:30
This game is getting on my last nerve. Often when I play the game crashes, especially when I'm working towards a high score. The coins for any boost are taken at the beginning of the game so no matter what they are gone. However, if you've reached a new high score and then the game crashes, the score is gone along with all the coins you used. Don't bother going to customer support. All you get there are FAQs and a circular hell that never gets you to a screen where you can report the problem. I've played this game for years but I'm really close to calling it quits.
Need new games
by Carl Rider on 2016/01/19 11:35
The same games over and over is getting old. Same old. Same old. Need new games.
Update created a mess
by Davmar96 on 2016/01/19 02:23
After current update my game isn't working. I hope this defect is fixed. The game is fun, challenging and competitive. Please fix.
Usually amazing
by Amandalevalley on 2016/01/18 19:52
I play this game all the time, sense they added the daily challenge it is my favourite part... Now it doesn't work it just keeps spinning and says download in progress, please fix this bug... The last 3 or 4 days playing has been boring as hell!!!
Locked out?
by Avi.c12 on 2016/01/18 19:37
Am I locked out after winning to much? After this last Tuesday "clearing" I can not access special gems, nor, the daily challenges. Why not?
Fixed probabilities
by Jewellmc on 2016/01/17 19:43
When you first download this game, you win big on your spins and gameplay is fast and fun. After your first day or two, your spins are generally only going to win you 1k - 2500 coins (you'll often get blue, blue, purple or something similar). Also, daily challenges are fun and normal gameplay is fun, but if you activate a rare gem, your probability of matches goes way down. It's just super obvious that the game is rigged against you as a ploy to get you to buy coins. I play this game a little every day, but I'm definitely getting annoyed enough with all these little tricks to uninstall and write this review. Hopefully it's helpful to some of you.
Good game
by _OT on 2016/01/17 16:04
I like playing this game everyday. It is a fun game. The only issues I have is that when you are close to completing a room, it takes forever to get that collection item or two. It's up to the player to win the bingo card but the collection item should at least appear. Also, I play the daily free rounds everyday. I have a few collection items left. The items never appear on the bingo cards. I have been doing this for about a year. Maybe delaying the collection items is how the owners make money.
Updates are aweful, won't load
by Dippity dan on 2016/01/17 05:55
The daily challenge won't load since the last update, which as of now it's 4 days
Update downer
by Video'd out... on 2016/01/17 02:22
The latest update killed the daily challenge feature. It is now just spinning and not downloading. It happened a few updates ago. Please fix so I can get my daily fix of Bejeweled!
What happened to the game?
by GinaZ73 on 2016/01/16 14:36
I've been playing this for years and years. I don't use FB but I created an account just for the purpose of this game. I get that ads must be incorporated to keep developer cost down but they've gotten out of hand. With each update the daily challenge fails to load for at least 24 hours if not longer. I know it is not my internet connection. I'm struggling with just using up all my coins on the special gems and bidding farewell the Blitz. My 12 year son enjoys the competition though but he too experiences the same issues. I think I'll try not doing the updates for awhile.
It's full of advertisements
by Simdps on 2016/01/16 07:20
Guess greed overcame pride of what he accomplished in the game and filled it full of advertisements for the Mighty dollar !! So sad
Remove ads
by sixfootdad on 2016/01/16 06:37
It's quite unpleasant and startling to have the sound turned off and then have an ad suddenly play at full volume. It's a rather poor playing experience. I can't recommend this game until there's either a way to pay for the removal of ads or Bejeweled stops allowing very loud and startling ads.
Love it but latest update causing issue
by Koop Kidd on 2016/01/16 03:09
I did the latest update is causing the daily game on the bottom right to spin. It says download in progress but it's been like that over a day. Help!!!
Stop the Ads and repair the daily challenges.
by 38Scottie on 2016/01/16 02:35
Once a fun game, but recently it's become a pain to play with the constant pop-ups and interruptions. Please fix this. Also why have the daily spins been so low? What a scam!!! Latest update removed daily challenges, and the special gems I earned are no longer available. B.S. Don't bother downloading. Rip off. F-Facebook, I don't do social networking.
Latest update
by Greanfroge on 2016/01/15 22:05
Haven't been able to play for 2 days. Loading is stuck. Plus daily spins are lame. 2 blues and some other color. It's stuck on lame lowest amounts. 1,000 to 2,500 coins.
The troubles continue 😡😡😡
by jp4675 on 2016/01/15 22:04
Once again, today (Jan 15, 2015) the daily challenge isn't downloading. STUCK!!! 😡 When it works, it's a great game! 🙄 But this problem happens over and over with updates. Sloppy coding??? 👎
Bad update
by Fifav on 2016/01/15 20:27
Icon still candy canes and holly. Unable to play daily challenge....I keep being told to be patient while it loads but it never does. Patience is gone.
Needs
by Quangod on 2016/01/15 20:27
Let the public know when you nerf items
About the ads
by Zhabbe on 2016/01/15 18:39
You know this is a fun game if you need to kill time. And it's free. And I don't mind looking at regular ads to keep it free. But now there are video ads. And the sound is turned up SO high that I can't play in a waiting room anymore or anytime I want quiet (I have the sounds of the game turned off for good reason). And I pity anyone who is surprised by a video ad when they are wearing earphones because they seriously will need hearing aids after one of those ads blasts their eardrums. Even when my phone is on vibrate the ads just blare away before I can swipe them off the screen of my phone. Don't risk it if you sneak playing at work! I will most likely get fed up enough to delete this app very soon and I've warned everyone I know. It's really bad enough to damage your hearing.
Freakin Updates
by BULLCRAPPER on 2016/01/15 15:04
Wish that the updates would STOP MESSING WITH MY DAILY CHALLENGES!!!!!!
FAKE OFFERS
by 66tgh887 on 2016/01/15 13:12
A fake offer of 1,400,000 coins for $1.99 keeps popping up, but errors as soon as you click okay. This could not be an accident because every other offer can be transacted just fine. Apple has no business permitting fake offers in their market.
CANT OPEN ON IPAD SINCE JAN 13
by Jolts5 on 2016/01/15 12:04
The update made the game unplayable on iPad. Fix this!!
Too many ads :(
by Annonomous on 2016/01/15 10:23
You can barely enjoy playing a game before being bombarded by ads. If the intent was to frustrate me you succeeded. I'll play a different game with less or no ads.
VERY SLOW BORING USELESS
by ExtremelyAngry on 2016/01/15 08:08
USELESS USELESS USELESS. EVEN THE SUPPORT IS USELESS. I GIVE GAME ZERO STARS. GAME IS WORTHLESS, ITS VERY SLOW & BORING. UPDATES ARE USELESS.
Overall great time killer
by Huggabunchable on 2016/01/15 04:14
So this game is pretty fun and a great way to kill time. Especially at night laying in bed with a case of insomnia. The only gripe I really have would be the cost of the boosters. They seem to be super expensive and you have to build up your coins to use any or win them. Oh and quite often I'll lose 10k in the daily challenge when the game crashes on me. At least a few times a day.
So I watch those ads...
by Dwbp on 2016/01/14 23:11
And your app does Not record the promised 2,000 coins promised when I watch that Stupid ad! What else does it "forget" to notice??

Best game but I wish you can hit bigger jackpots been playing for years and never hit a big jackpot
Excellent

This game is perfect and fun!! I can play this endlessly. Keep up the good work you guys!!
Very poor support, updates make the game unplayable!
by SweetCat2 on 2016/01/14 12:25
I used to love this game. However, after almost every update my game wouldn't load, or spins wouldn't load. I followed the instructions from "support",(I use that term loosely) I logged out of Facebook, and then could not login again. I deleted my game and reinstalled it. All of my coins and items were gone, and still I could not connect to Facebook. After the last update, I was finally able to connect, but everything was still gone!! I'm writing this review in the hopes that other people will learn from my mistakes. Please don't put any money into this game! And don't bother contacting support, because they will not respond.

What's the point?
by Orlando Rays on 2016/01/13 21:25
What's the point of in-app purchases if you're just going to force us to see ads every other game anyway? I'm not buying in anymore.
Ads should not override sound settings!!!
by SmittyRedcard on 2016/01/13 02:17
Love the app, don't really mind the ads. I understand the need to pay. But when I have sounds off in an app, I don't expect a video ad to play at full volume in the middle of using it! I'm leaving this review at all offending apps. Sound levels are for EVERYTHING in the app, not just in app sounds. Fix this and get a true rating.
Awesome Game, but....
by Dumb clown 48 on 2016/01/13 01:29
Great game, GET RID OF THE ADS!!!! I have the full version of this game so I shouldn't see ANY ad! And I'm sure thousands of people agree with me! Other than the ridiculous number of ads, it's a blast!
Horrible!

Too many ads, after years of playing this game I am about to delete.
What Happened to all of my points???
by Toooooo funnnnn on 2016/01/11 22:13
As of yesterday, I had over 11,000,000 points . As of 5 minutes ago, I have 150,000 and only because I just got 100,000 on today's spin. What happened. I also lost me bonuses from the daily game. Give it all back or I will quit playing AND will let every friend I have know what you took away from me.
Too many adverts
by Calhoopy on 2016/01/11 15:12
Used to play this all the time, it was my favorite game. However the adverts are out of control!! I don't play half as much because I'm so annoyed!!! Can't choose to ignore them as you once could. You blink and find yourself halfway through the new advertisement and if you aren't careful downloading something you have absolutely no interest in!!!! Hate it!!!!
Gems Loss
by MrsLive on 2016/01/11 07:29
Frustrated to say the least! Banked seven various gems, only to have them disappear! Some I earned but at least 4 I PURCHASED! So why not reimburse my account; you can do that you know. And now seeing SO many reviews about lost coins, I'm tempted to use my almost 2M and quit while I'm just frustrated and not outraged. Fix, upgrade and improve EFFECTIVELY so patrons are victims. #ThisGameIsNotThat GoodYaKnow

Obnoxiously loud ads
by Ladybuggs717 on 2016/01/11 00:04
Addendum 1/10/16 I enjoy playing this game and I didn't even mind when the pop up ads started but these new, loud, obnoxious commercials that I can't close out of for however many seconds have made this game unplayable. Please stop that or add a way to mute these commercials. Since the update, I can't log in to play against my Facebook friends and my scores won't post!!
Terrible update.
by FB issues on 2016/01/10 21:17
Don't see friends scores any more even though logged in to Facebook . Now you have to 'invite' them. Game really not fun any more. Probably gonna delete now.
Update

Abysmal, nonexistent support
by Junk, don't buy! on 2016/01/10 01:34
If you use Facebook to log into this app, beware. If Facebook disables your account, which is a huge, regular problem with Facebook, you will not be able to log into this app and you will lose all of your coins and special items that you have won and paid for. In my case, that is roughly 4,600,000 coins and countless items that are now gone. What's worse is that I have contacted support 3 times and I have not received even a single response and all of my coins/items, that I paid for, have not been merged or credited to my new Facebook login, as I have requested that they be. In short, this is a very shady company that is very happy to take your money in exchange for the worst customer service that I have ever experienced.
Failure to pay
by Himandaro on 2016/01/08 08:40
The latest update has failed to award the correct number of coins for the 125,000 payoff. Twice this week I have received 25,000 instead. Tough when it cost 90,000 to play the round.
Playing less

Loved this game. Still do, but for a game I paid for, the amount of ads coming up now is ridiculous.
Bejeweled blitz is fun!
by Bejeweled Leslie on 2014/06/20 05:05
This first paragraph is my most recent review...I changed the rating from a 4 to a 3 because of all the trouble with daily spins. Not only is it always such a low amount, sometimes it doesn't even work! This prevents you from gaining more coins for spinning up to 7 days in a row. Also I find it ironic that when the coins are 50% off on Fridays, I can't even buy them because I get this asinine message that says"loading the store. please stand by while we stock our shelves" LOL!! Then after 11pm when the coins are back to full price, I can magically access the store to buy coins!! But guess what?!?! I'm not going to buy them anymore. This game bores me with all the bugs. Please fix it. I love that you can get the streaks on rare gems and that you can see your stats too ( just like on a PC). However you can't connect to Facebook and play on an iPad (you have to use the app). Therefore, if you want to buy coins you have to get them through the iTunes store, you can't share spin winnings or check your messages like you can on Facebook. The graphics and loading speed are great, but the technical difficulties I'm having with making an in-app purchase is really annoying me right now. I would like to see the Bejeweled app be able to do all of the things that playing the game on Facebook does.
Great Pick-up 'n' Play Puzzle Gameplay
by DTx21 on 2015/01/03 05:17
A lot of Puzzle games like this require the player to rely heavily upon being incredibly pensive and reflecting deeply upon his or her move options and thinking ahead and strategizing, and only moving quickly once those conditions have been met. Not so with this game! It still requires the player to be observant and to think 2 or 3 seconds ahead, but mostly it demands him/her to have quick reflexes and resolute persistence. It's all about jumping in, making as many great matches as you can in a minute, and hoping you got a great score in the process. (Or at least that's how I play.) You don't need to worry about digging yourself into deep pit or painting yourself into a corner—the game will always drop the right colored gems to enable you to make at least one new move, so keep making those matches without fear for running out of moves. It has enough bells and whistles to enhance the longevity of the replay value. I totally recommend this game for Puzzle gamers who desire for a change of pace something faster and more simplistic yet still appropriately challenging in its own ways. My Rating: 9/10
READ THIS
by Remi The Master on 2012/05/22 07:12
Ok so I love this game and I wanted to start a new round really fast so I just double tap but then instead of the play button popping up, the rare gem pops up:( I bought it on accident with the free 50,000 coins for signing up.I backed out then turned off my iPod and turned it back on hoping it wouldn't save me buying it but then when I go back to the app, my coins are gone but the rare gem isn't their anymore. You guys should put the rare gems in the shop because when we want to buy it, we will buy it and when we don't want to buy it, we don't buy it. Popcap I bet that you guys won't read this message because it's just one person but if you wont put my money back, can you at least give me what I bought on accident. Oh and an idea to make people want to but the rare gems is to make them permanent in a casual mode that stops when their are no more moves. I would actually buy those gems if you guys made them permanent. So to sum it up, fix my problem, make a casual game mode, and make rare gems permanent. You guys should make more rare gems and make them cheaper of they are going to be a one time use. I hope you guys listen to me!
Pros & cons
by jaw443 on 2012/03/11 06:31
Addicting fun app, well done, but for a long time, there is a glitch where scores over 500 don't count toward a gold medal, it's stuck on 8/10. So I find myself trying to slow down to avoid going over 500 because I'm working on 350, 400 & 450. There's no reward for higher scores. When I updated this app back in September or October, pop cap gave me free rare gems, lots of them, lasting a long time, making higher scores more frequent. When they ran out, if I want to keep using them, I had to pay--a lot, on an ongoing basis. Very clever of them, they must make a ton of money doing this. But there is something sleazy about exploiting people who are prone to addiction. It's getting to the point where I'm going to have to give it up because they started giving out rare gems almost every game & I just bought $20 worth a few hours ago, and it's charging me again. I'm sure I haven't played any more than usual so I think this is just more manipulation of addiction. Those who can afford to pay more than once a day will continue to be a gold mine for them. I need to leave it alone at this point. Great game, diabolical company. :-)
Addictive and annoying
by Tim Kloppenburg on 2013/04/14 19:01
I have been playing Bejeweled since my very first iPhone. Yes I love it! I now play bejeweled blitz almost every night! What I like is the faster pace if this version, most if the time I like the time limit of one minute. But what I hate about the game is you need to collect coins to get super powers. If you cannot win them you can always buy them (that is BS). Ok so you have enough coins, you spend the coins on a superpower (now scoring against the competition is skewed in you favor) you win at the top of the chart and then 2 days later the scores are reset! Basically if you bought the coins for the superpower and won, you just threw your money away! Like I said I play almost everyday. I just got over 200,000 without spending one coin. I've made it my goal to see how many coins I can earn. I will say that it is also annoying that the buttons to buy the superpowers are in the exact same place as the play button. I have accidentally spent a lot if coinage by pressing those stupid buttons, and once you press it, there is no way that I know of to cancel the superpower. You are stuck playing it.
Game is fun, update is glitchy
by Boothacus on 2015/06/13 04:34
The game is really good and you can get addicted but the most recent update is very buggy. Coin/gem wins in daily challenge doesn't seem to apply even if you've won your score doesn't apply to your general high score. I used to be able to play iTunes in the background but now it cuts out and I've had to restart my phone a few times to when the whole game seems to get wonky with sound. There is also a delay after you finish a game that keeps you stuck before it lets you play again. I am assuming that it's so you can see all the great play combs/possibilities that just showed up on the board now that the game is over but since I'm trying to play again anyway no need to entice me and delays my actual playing again. Very annoying. The rare gems can be really pricy but all of these criticisms aside, it's a very addictive game. And I play it all the time. The 'add coin' by watching short ads is a great feature since they get to give you the game for free and sell advertising and you get to get coins without having ads pop up distracting you while you're trying to play.
Still a favorite!
by totalRAH on 2014/12/31 19:46
I've been playing this game for a couple of years now. I really like the Free Coins option where I can watch ads to get free coins, and I'm really enjoying the Daily Challenge for its coin awards and for the variations in game play. Unlike other reviewers, I've not experienced any glitches. Everything works fine for me. Like other reviewers, I think the coin rewards payouts for play are way too small in proportion to the cost of the special gems. I can win 1,000 coins, but most of the gems are 40,000 coins or more... 40 games just to earn enough to play 1 gem 1 time is frustrating when the gems make the play so much more fun. Now that I can earn gems and coins through Daily Challenge and ads, it's much better, but the Daily Spin seems to have been diminished.. I used to earn 50,000 about once a month, but have only hit it once in the past 6 months. I've never hit all emeralds or all rubies, and only once ever hit all sapphires, which was awesome. Aside from not being able to earn coins quickly enough to play often with the gems, I have no complaints.
Not crazy about it!
by See3PO on 2011/12/21 19:42
I normally play Blitz more times daily than I can count... Started on my iTouch when I first bought the app as part of Bejeweled. When I got my iPad (prior to this new version) I could play the one I was used to in the smaller mode on my iPad as opposed to full screen. Then,at first, I tried the new one and found myself immediately going back to the original app as I have real problems playing it on the full screen. I am glad I did not have to purchase this new one as I would have immediately asked for a refund!!! WHY did you not let those of us who were used to and loved the original app to be able to still use it as it was originally?!?!?!? You forced the original app I bought to be updated and/or converted to include the new Blitz app within it. That just plain stinks in my book!!! I feel you are morally obligated to return the original app that I and countless others bought and paid for to be returned to its original form. One can always use the new app to access the free spin... Also -- why can one no longer see the weekly scores on the graph and the other friendly competitive pluses that are non-existent in the new one?!?!? In my book, you tried but it was NOT a good plan. Steve Jobs would not have been happy with this change!
I love this game but new version has issues
by Love4d2 on 2015/06/21 07:10
I love this game and love the daily challenges and the fact that they randomly give the bonus jewels I even play my personal friends on this game a lot but this is the second time in the last two weeks that it hasn't given me my winnings. Yesterday I used the new sea or trident jewel which was given as a free jewel... and at the end when u choose your jewel I chose the bottom corner and won the grand prize of 250k coins. Of course they did not give me my winnings. In fact I wasn't even credited for my game. It showed I won 1500 coins on top of the 250k but I didn't even get credit for that it was like I never even played the game. I occasionally buy coins for this game because I do like it so to win this much and not get them credited is upsetting. I tried to find a place to email or let tech support know and was put in an everlasting loop of faq's boards and no way of contacting support. Not happy and not sure if I will stay around too much longer if this doesn't get resolved it will be hard too because I have played this game from the beginning.
Awesome
by Mumof2gals on 2012/04/27 09:28
Such a time waster!! Bad bad bad thing to have on the iPad! I might need to go to Bejeweled anonymous!! This game is quick and fun and a great way to make time go by while waiting for something or another. It is addicting though and before you know it, one minute becomes 60! Edit April 27'12: the game is still fun and a few times I won a 25k, 50k and 100k jewel spin, whoohoo :) I play it everyday when I need to make time go by faster. Now and then the game can't log in, usually after an update, to FB. While I am ok with the occasional down time, it shouldn't happen each time an upgrade happens. It just doesn't look good on the developer part. So, while I am ok on/offline, I am removing one star for lack of checking or what not before releasing an update. I do have one request, can you make the abandon button not so close to the rare gem harvesting button? I realise that you want people to use the rare gem and make money from extra spins but it's a bit too easy to accidentally push - and there's no confirm button to use the rare gems, it just goes.
MOVE the BUTTON already
by Vivalasvegas2000 on 2012/12/08 00:46
UPDATE: Do not buy coins!! The special gem green button placement is a scam to burn your coins to get you to buy more. I have been playing this game for almost a year and there is a glitch where the game will pause or revert back to the old screen so you push the "buy a rare gem" green button rather than the "play" button. I think this is a purposeful scam because I have never "accidentally" purchased a cheaper gem. It only happens on the 75,000 coin gem. I do not think it is an accident! I have never bothered complaining on a review, but I think this is truly a scam and it aggravates me every time I feel ripped off. ORIGINAL POST: I love this game but refuse to give it more than one star until they MOVE the rare gem BUTTON. It takes too many games to earn coins just to have the game force you to use them because of their ridiculous placement of the button. I can't even let my kids play because they will always hit the big, green button and use my coins. And I refuse to pay for more coins since I feel swindled out of them every time I accidentally hit that button. Why cause such angst in your players who otherwise would be enjoying your game?? PLEASE fix this immediately!
Dumped it after 12 yrs of loyalty
by MonkeyBlue69 on 2014/06/27 15:11
I have played this game for over 12yrs. I have pd. for the app on several phones, have it on three pc's and now on my iPad. After this last update of blitz they are drowning my game with full page ads. I looked up the opt out and even if you DO choose that all it means is they will now send ads that do not pertain to your interests, but will drowned u with all kinds of ads so there is no way to stop it. I was in first place and had a lot of special gems saved not to mention all the time I spend playing this because it helps keep your mind quick also. I have removed the game for good after all these yrs. the last straw was this mornings pop ups started freezing my iPad and had to shut down and restart every time, enough is enough. Typical of big business, u have a good thing going and u throw everyone who made u right out the window. Good going Google. I bet people who spend a lot of money playing the game are not suffering with these pop ups. Just another way for them to weed out people who like the game for competition, meeting people and just fun. I am so done with on line live gaming. Leaves me more time on my other activities, good riddance.
My addiction has been cured by all the bad updates
by AnnB11261 on 2012/12/31 21:55
I've been addicted to this game for 2+ years. However, in trying to make the game "better", the last several updates have just made it so I don't even want to log in anymore. Starting from the top: 1) The game is taking longer and longer to load 2) It doesn't always recognize me/my friends, so I'm playing against a bunch of made up character names 3) When I've already taken my spin for the day I still have to go past this screen on subsequent plays of the day 4) If I'm lucky enough to finish a game without it crashing, the game crashes right at the end of the game and kicks me out. 5) I don't even bother purchasing any of the boosts, because when the game kicks me out, it doesn't remember that I have two more games left to play with those boosts. I'm spending less and less time with this game, and subsequently less an less likely to talk my Facebook friends into playing it, too. I did not upgrade to the new OS system because of all the bad news about it, but this shouldn't be the reason a perfectly good game has gone down the tubes.
Getting tired of little reward
by Luvinmayberry on 2014/12/31 22:08
I have been a long time player, way before fb began. Now with having to purchase everything instead of earning it by accomplishment I've become aggravated. I REFUSE to spend money on a game, I may as well flush money down the toilet. Plus playing the game burns up my battery on my phone fast! It's very buggy and has gotten so bad that when Apple did diagnostics on my phone they found this app was the issue at amassing great amounts of bugs on my phone to the point I had to replace my phone. Ready to delete. I'm fast losing interest when the money earned comes way slower then anything you can spend it on for a gem. I don't believe that buying my way to getting top score is even in my top 10,000 things to do. Don't waste your money, it's all a money ploy to the creators. Find a better game that won't try to rip you off, occasionally steals 10s of 1000s of coins at a time, and after watching these stupid ads for free coins I've been stuck in an unending loop of commercials only to find out it banked the coins then took every last one back! Waste of time!!
Where are my coins????
by Family top chef on 2015/11/10 05:07
I love this game. Have been playing it for years. It's fun, addictive and I love the challenge and competition against my friends. My issue is that a few weeks ago my coins that I had worked hard to earn over a long period of time went from nearly 6,000,000 down to ZERO!!! How does that happen? I didn't spend them, I just opened the app and they were gone like I had never played. I restarted the app, restarted my phone thinking and hoping it was a glitch but it has been over 3 weeks and nothing has been restored. I have continued to play and rebuild my coins but those should be added to the coins I had already worked hard for. Someone should look into this issue and restore the coins that I had rightfully earned previously! Short of that I would have given the app 5 stars. Yes it glitches occasionally and freezes up and needs to be restarted but I don't know if anything technological that doesn't occasionally do this. Small irritate toon for a great game. I would just like my coins back.
I thought it was my phone...
by thunderboomerz on 2013/12/24 04:01
I am so relieved to see that the game is crap and not my phone. This used to be the only game I would play and i got good at it. I'm telling anyone that has the old version not to update if they dont have to. Each time you update it gets a little slower and finally it just opens to the home page and crashes. I've gone to the Pop cap website and tried everything they suggested, nothing works. I really miss this game but it is what it is...I'll keep looking and find something to take its place. I'm giving it a rate of 1 star now but if you can get it to not crash...its a definite 5 star game. FIXX please and find a way to let everyone know its been fixed! so i came back and bugs have been fixed. ILuv This game! There are so many copycat games that just dont measure up. give it a shot ur sure to get hooked. the color is sharper and so are the graphics. i'm back in love! Bugs r Gone.
It's gotten to be no fun. It's a joke
by Bobbijo1219 on 2014/12/17 13:47
You know it's sad that you can't even get the blue or red gems unless you spend money on this I don't have the money to spend I just try to have some fun with it The gems are are very expensive it's making the game not fun to play anymore . I'm finding out from family and friends that's why they don't play the game. That is too expensive is no fun I think it's fun. Months ago either give you a five star rating now that I've seen how it works. December 14, 2014 I give up playing candy crush because I thought this was a thunder game but it's just gotten cost many points to get to your jams and we only get five or 600 per game I don't have the money to pay for your jams but I've talk to friends that won't play the game because it for these reasons and sometimes when you update your update your app you lose all your points and that's not right i'm going got one from the blaze it now you don't play that much anymore because 75,000 by one gym or whatever you want to call it i'll give it another month or so or less to find a different game right now I won't ask people to play this game
Bejeweled Blitz
by Tygresspv on 2015/06/09 16:35
Although the game is improved some, I have to play on my IPAD MINI because my tremors won't allow me to play well with the usual computer mouse. This being said, I find it frustrating that I can't get all the same "perks" as I did on FaceBook, using the computer. I can't share I my daily spin score, or invite others to join etc. Now, we have these mandatory periodic "upgrades" which really don't improve the game as much as they aggravate with interruptions with annoying advertisements. The ads wouldn't be so annoying , but they interrupt in the middle of playing the game & when I X it out, it takes me to the App Store instead of back to my game! Another frustration is this new "Daily Challenge". It has not been explained what it is or how it works, or or how to play. I love. this game, but all these interruptions & unnecessary ads & so-called upgrades are my daily challenge!
Redundant play
by Rayman12321 on 2012/09/05 05:38
I feel like I have to play over and over and over again to earn so little coin each game in order to attempt to beat the higher score. I find myself just waiting and hoping I get a good spin and win coin rather than playing to earn it. The game seems to lead you to want to purchase coin but instead for me it just makes me not want to play. It's agonizing playing and playing to earn next to nothing compared one one good free spin that will get you more in a 12 hour span then actually playing for 12 hours. It's a fun game, when you have coins. Otherwise it's like farming for it. Then when you pay for a rare gem and just don't get a good run, all that time you spent earning or waiting for the coins goes to nothing. I'd have to say 3 stars just due to the game itself being entertaining. Not a 4 or 5 because the competition of the game relies solely on having enough coin.
Great game but......
by JBalls12345678910 on 2013/06/26 05:23
First, when you purchase a multiplier gem to start the game EVERY time it starts out in the bottom three rows on the outside of the grid. Why would this matter? We've already purchased the gem and you're handicapping it!? Not once in probably over 200 games did it start out at the top or even in the middle of the game. I love this game and have played Bejeweled since I was in my college dorm almost 10 years ago but there are certain nuances that I am not thrilled with since I started updating a few months ago. The daily spin or if spins are purchased there seem to be more low amounts, and the spinners land on them much more frequently, with every update. The high coin values of the fun special gems haven't budged but the payouts have. Maybe tier the spins with only 2 like gems so they aren't all 2500 which is terrible to land on. Or change up the payouts. There are a lot of low but only one really high maybe put some more in the middle.
Sorry I updated!
by Dot402 on 2014/07/12 00:04
Do not update...you loose everything! This version is not worth your time. I can no longer play with Facebook friends on my iPad. :-( bring back the old version! I would give it no stars if I could...robbers...wish I could get back time and money invested. Lawyers should be contacted. Support help is NO help! Here we go again. Does not even let me write my own review. Every time I update, I cannot play on my iPad, only on my phone. I know they can fix these problems because it was fixed before. Very frustrating . I agree with the person who started this review...you are ripping us off! Keep it up and you won't be #1 for long. I hope someone reads this....😢😢😢😢please HELP!!! Are you out there??? And now nothing but full page ads that I have no interest in and still crashes when it comes time to use my boosts for second game... Still a one star... Fix the game and you get five and not until! Please stop these full page ads. All they do is kick me out of my game. And whenever I buy boosts, I get kicked out before I can take advantage of them, resulting in loss of coins....

Is it me or is this game getting worst with each release? Now, when the app is terminated because it's been in the background, when you come back and it reloads, it completely forget about your score or your friends' score. It doesn't' even remember you were connected through Facebook. So, you have to login again through Facebook (which is another prime example of a lame, slow application) and then when you come back in the app, it doesn't remember your last score! It doesn't even remember the score of your friends. Fortunately (or maybe by accident), when you play a game and come back after the game to the main menu, your previous highest score for the week is restored. But no score is showing for any of your friends. It is also very obvious that this app is just there in the App Store to make money. I don't have a problem with that but when it's becoming too obvious, I lose interest quickly. I think people are rating this app too quickly and way too high. It was a fine game a year ago but PopCap is completely destroying it.
Inconsistent scoring & buying gems really costs
by SchmutzieCat on 2013/12/24 01:25
The game itself is fun and challenging BUT it is wildly inconsistent in how many points you can win in any given game (without buying any gems). One game you may win 300,000+ points and then not get over 25,000 or 50,000 points for the next 10 or more games, and you are making the same/similar combinations of matching jewels. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason behind the scoring, and nothing is written down in the rules to explain how points are earned. It is also very frustrating that one must generally spend between 10,000 and 75,000 coins to purchase a gem (depending on the gem), but the most coins one is likely to earn back playing with the purchased gem is far less than the purchase price (perhaps as much as 5,000 coins). This makes purchasing coins a losing proposition and not really worth it. The game would be much better if players had a chance to make back what they spend on a gem when they buy the gem.
Needs updates
by swiftcraze on 2011/12/17 04:48
The new graphics are pretty amazing for the retina display. The colors are crisp and vibrant. The gems are pretty cool. The casino style "spin for coins" was a nice touch as well. Before the update i was glued to this game. But since the upgrade to the separate Bejeweled Blitz, not so much. It's very slow. Like, incredibly slow! The movement on the game pieces is seriously delayed and to get a high score you absolutely need specialty gems. Which will cost you a lot of coins. Even though you get the free bonus spin for coins, it's now impossible to accumulate coins. It seriously takes for ever. In my opinion they did it so you would run out of coins quickly and have to pay for the coins instead of earn them during game if you wanted to play. The update also removed your personal stats. That was the worst part of the update I thought. I was addicted to getting all my star levels to lv 5 gold and competing vs my friends stats. In Essenes the game is pretty much horrendous now. Unless you update it, I won't be playing much anymore. But they already got my money so I guess they don't really care!!
Play with caution
by bridget330 on 2015/10/16 01:58
Let me begin by saying that I've played this game for years and enjoy playing it. However, Apple i-tunes robs you when buying coins. They offer a special but after you agree to purchase it for one price, they charge you full price. They also have a new thing if you play it on your computer. A pop up asks you to purchase coins in a slick little way that you just click yes to get it out of the way, until you realize that it just charged you money for coins. I've contacted the makers of the game and they referred me back to I-tunes. It is next to impossible to contact them for any reason. It seems to me that the maker of the game has responsibility to make sure that we are charged the correct amount without getting ripped off, but they play the innocent victim. I have been charged $65 for coins. "I know, I'm the crazy one because I continue to play." I don't think I should have to stop playing because they lack integrity. Anyway. Proceed with caution.
Past Posters Plz Read!!!
by Heath.. on 2014/07/24 17:30
Ok so I hope that people who have posted in the past read this. I've seen a lot of complaints about accidentally buying rare gems when hitting the play button twice to play faster. I you hit it twice and accidentally bought a rare gem (which I have done as well) them you should see the page to buy other special gems as well before you actually play. All you have to do is hit the back arrow and go back to the main page and it will cancel the gem. Hope this helps! Ok now for my review. Like everyone has said, this game is very addictive (and annoying ;)) and fun. It links to Facebook and I've stopped playing it on the computer. I've found using this app easier. The only reason I only gave it 3 stars was because the latest update brought pop up ads in between games every so often. It didnt do this before and I'm hoping the low rating will get the attention of developers and try get rid of the ads.

by wicked witch of the west on 2012/09/11 05:39
Just wanted to say, I'm a pretty careful consumer. I don't like to download updates until I read the reviews and make sure everything is working correctly. And in many cases, i'll simply forgo the update or delete the app altogether if the update reviews are less than favorable. Well, I read the reviews and waited and then downloaded anyway because I LOVE this game and it wouldn't allow me to play at all unless I updated-which in itself was pretty frustrating. I guess I'm lucky that I'm still able to play and the app doesn't crash, as I've seen in other reviews, but I'm highly disappointed that my score vs. my FB friends has been the same for the last 3 weeks. Granted, it is higher than theirs, but I kinda like competing on a week by week basis. This just isn't fun. And there's no telling what they see my score as being this week. I'm also disappointed that this hasn't been corrected, or even addressed on the FB page (so far as I've seen). Is this something I just have to get used to? Because it kinda feels like this game has lost all it's flavor as a result of the update.
Do not update.
by Joe_in_boston on 2012/06/11 00:20
Agree with reviewers who thought this game was better before when you could use one booster offline without the coin system. Now, the point system is a total scam because they require way too many coins for each booster, and come on, it is one minute of play time! You don't earn enough coins to play with boosters unless you are willing to pay for coins, so the only realistic option is to play without boosters. And you still have to click through several fields to circumvent all the boosters and gems and what not, in order to play again...another one minute game. Ridiculous. I also don't like that it's impossible to understand the scoring system. You have a sense of how good you're doing, but that correlates poorly with your final score, and it is impossible to develop a strategy short of go faster! So while this game is pretty fun on its own merits, the application producers have ruined it. My solution: erase from my iPad and avoid wasting time with an app that partly entertains me and partly irritates me.
Fun but be warned
by Kouth on 2013/04/21 19:49
This is a fun game, that can be very addicting. It is also fun to make goals for yourself in gaining coins. The problem with this game is that occasionally you are offered an option to spend many coins on a special game enhancement. The genius thing here is that when these people designed the game, they designed the 'ok' option perfectly, right above the 'no thanks' button. There has been many times when I have blown 50,000 coins against my will. Very frustrating and frankly I always feel like someone is stealing from me when it happens. The idea that they designed the 'ok' button right next to the 'no thanks' button in a way that causes people to accidentally click it. In turn, causing general players to go to the 'spin' section and spend more money on the game. It really should be fixed, but it hasn't been because they like tricking the public into more spending.
THIS GAME IS A RIP OFF
by Sbanhagel on 2015/10/18 04:09
Do not use this game!!!! Rips you off on coins you actually buy!! Not only that, they tell you that you get a discount on a new boost and it charges you full price!! It hit me for over $75. Ok I let it go the first two times and on the third try... I went to purchase additional coins because the spinner is an absolute JOKE!!! You will NEVER HIT THE BLUE DIAMONDS!!! Took another chance to buy coins and it did give me the correct amount. Didn't play again for almost a month and started seeing fraudulent charges on my credit card. They ripped me off $45 a week out under some credit check company. The last laugh was on them! Once the proper paperwork was filed and my bank took over, we changed 100% of my account information. New account numbers and credit card numbers were issued. They kept being greedy for their weekly $45 and finally got busted!! They were using credit card checks of all things to make it happen!!! If career criminals would use their intelligence for legal work, they would be considered the upper class in society!! What a shame!!!!
Curious
by LisaH123 on 2014/07/24 16:39
I have played this game for years. It's one of the only games I have played almost daily. I have completed every maximum level you can. I am Rank 182. Nothing left to challenge me there. However the keystones keep me playing... Unless.. The only keystones that pop up are to clear a bunch of gems. That's boring so I don't play as often. I only use coins to obtain a high score... After that it seems pointless to use any coins to obtain a keystone where the payoff is substantially less that the number of coins it would take to complete the task. The game used to have a chat feature where I could message my friends when we played. That disappeared. I think there should also be an option to share your current coins with a friend. There should be more keystones to complete for tokens... I do not need XP points.
Frustrating but addicting
by Mod011000 on 2013/03/21 02:39
Great game and wonderfully addicting! However, there two things that frustrates me to the point I'm going to delete the app and find something else to fulfill my boredom. The first thing is the Daily Spin has become less than amusing. I'm not winning anything over than 10k and that us not very often. Before I would earn more allowing to purchase different jewels. Now I have to play longer just to earn enough coins. The last and most frustrating of all is the placement of the offer to purchase the jewels. After my game is complete I have the option to play again or purchase a special jewel that will help me gain more coins. Well on at least 4 occasions when I've try to bypass the purchasing of the jewel and just play the next game, I end up purchasing the jewel which deducts coins from my earnings. Therefore I can't save enough coins to get the big jewel to purchase. Any suggestions for a nothing addicting game, but this time without the headaches...
Additictive, Fun, but Occasionally Annoying
by Wyatt the Odd on 2014/03/06 01:28
This is not the app to use if you expect gemstones to shoot out of your iPhone. That doesn't happen here. Ever. For that, you'll need to download Magic Genie Lamp and rub vigorously. Please note that you must have also installed "Living in Fantasyland" into your wetware. Given that, who is this game for? Why, anyone who wants to kill a few minutes without the risk of "just one more level" during an executive meeting. Also, it's ideal for anyone with failed lapidary dreams. Why? Because, as the name says, you're blowing up precious gems. And, you've only got a minute before your horde is replaced by the top score screen. This is a game that seems to genuinely want you to rack up a massive score even if you don't use real money to buy the in-game coins. Each night, they give you a pull at the slot machine. And, the game will show you possible moves if you're stuck - it just won't show you the best move. The latest update seems to have geeked a couple of things. It keeps trying to open my phone's Game Center despite me disabling it. Also, after the trying the slot machine, you have to wait for the game to decide that you've read the message about when your next pull is available before it'll let you out. I've accidentally bought more "rare" gems because of this glitch than those I've bought on purpose.
Addicting, Beautiful, Heart-Pounding GamePlay
by Kurt Truk on 2013/04/09 22:23
I've played just about every version of Bejeweled and Bejeweled Blitz is my favorite. It's the best of the best in this style of game. Here are my suggestions and problems that need to be corrected before I'll go up to Five Stars, It's Great: As of the last two months gameplay has become sluggish. I'll be blazing along and then all of a sudden the game slows, my input is not recognized and on more than one occasion this has prevented me from hitting the coveted 1,000,000 point benchmark. So very frustrating when that happens. I'm sure you understand my frustration. This is an issue that has occurred only recently, within the last eight weeks or so. Something happened that caused this and needs to be addressed. So until then, user be ware. Make it easier to earn coins, please. A pull on the slot machine once a day and the few coins earned during gameplay are not enough to buy gems and upgrades. Because of this it is necessary to purchase coins to do so. It's great you have specials for certain gems and upgrades throughout the week and even a happy hour, but that's not enough. Level the playing field between those who can afford the coins and those who rely on gameplay to do so. It's just not fair. I look forward to future updates of this good game.
Latest update killed the game on ipad 1.
by Annalizzie on 2015/01/18 06:59
I was forced to update this game on my original ipad (that I use primarily to play this game...or I used to). It would not let me delay the upgrade and it would not let me play without it. When I tried to update, it said I needed to first update my OS to 6.0 which the original ipad can't support. (The OS is as high as allowed on this ipad.) It then asked if I would like a lesser Blitz upgrade that my ipad could handle. Again, I had to say yes, could not play otherwise. Well, no matter, I can't play the game with the supposed "upgrade" either. I had over 2 million points that just disappeared. If I try to do anything, I am bounced out of the game. Please, let us slowpokes keep our old ipads and old versions of apps. This is annoying beyond belief, and why I usually don't "upgrade" games because they often come with all sorts of problems. A similar thing happened with a previous upgrade of Blitz, but that subsequently was fixed. Before this, it was a fun game that I played daily. BUMMER!
Please let older iPads play the previous version!
by Blitzless on 2015/01/24 03:37
I have been addicted to this game for years and built my coins up to nearly 10,000,000. Last week I was forced to try to upgrade to the newer version of Blitz. I didn't think my old iPad could support it, but figured if it couldn't I would still be able to play the older version that I came to love. When I tried to click on Blitz again I was given the option of " do not upgrade now". It just ejected me from the game. I tried several times with no satisfaction. I really would appreciate a fix that would let me click on the "not now" option and reload my old version and keep the coin bank. I don't need brighter gems I just need the old version since I'm not buying a new iPad just to play this game.
Awesome idea!!!!
by Candas Fields on 2012/03/07 22:06
Love this game!!! Dont enjoy the fact that sometimes when I get 50k I get 500 coins or sometimes get 200k and still get 500 coins......I know you can buy coins but not everyone wants to buy them all the time. And you should get more coins for getting 200k. So I think if you get 50k, you get 500 coins, 100k a 1000, 200k 2000 coins and so on. Even if you got a million, you would only get 10,000 points. Just get rid of the coins on the jewels, keep the "2X, 3X, etc" for additional points, that way we don't get bored playing all the time just to get to the "Phoenix prism". That's my favorite part of the game, is when I get that and add three more things in my boxes!!! Its rock and roll time when that happens!!! Please please please consider this!!! Oh and to confirm some stuff already mentioned......my Facebook check in is fine, and yes, the 500k medal doesnt get added...... Thanks
Not an improvement over previous version
by Sun Quest on 2013/02/22 05:37
Won't save settings when I turn off music volume and disable auto-renewal of boosts. If I completely exit out of bejeweled blitz so it is not running in the background, then the settings revert back to defaults. I uninstalled and reinstalled this version and that did not help. I don't like auto-renewal always defaulting to on. Please fix as this is annoying. Update: After playing new version since installing it yesterday I can honestly say I see it as being less favorable than I previously thought. It is SLOW! Very very slow. It went from the gems falling fast to me being able to say "click click click" as they drop. This is on my iPhone4. I was getting around 800k, and now the best I can get is around 500k. I will not be using any more coins or buying any spins to get coins until it is fixed. I am downgrading the rating to 1 star. Wish I could give it zero instead as this game is no longer fun to play due to the jerky dropping of the gems. I really wish I hadn't upgraded.

by Fishing Creek on 2015/09/18 09:14
Still loving this game after all these years! Struggled for a LONG time to figure out the best way to play. This is what I've learned: Forget the points & concentrate on earning free coins. I play for long periods of time just earning free coins. Once I have about 8 or 900,000 coins, then I play for points by buying the most powerful boosts as many times as I can afford in order to be the 1st place player in my group. It's not so hard to accomplish that when I can buy as many boosts as I need. I stay in 1st place for the 6 day game period. After that I take more weeks to bring up the number of coins in my 'bank' so that I can buy the boosts I need to power myself back up to 1st place again. Even bringing myself up to 5th place is exciting. Since I have discovered this way to play, I'm enjoying Blitz more than I ever though possible 😄
Bejeweled Blitz
by GameDweeber on 2013/06/09 01:19
I love this game so much, but I'm kind if tired o the constant bugs that it has. One, for example, is not opening right away. Also, it hasn't been saying my high score for the week. And I'm kind of ticked that, for whatever reason, I has 50,000 coins total after one round and then the next, I have about 13,000. I mean, what happened to all my coins? I didn't use them on anything. They just disappeared. Not looking at the bugs and my complains, I think that the game is overall pretty good. It keeps me entertained for hours in the car for long car trips, or just entertained around the house when I have nothing to do. It's a lot of fun to play with my friends as well. Like at a party, my friends and I can pass my iPod around, playing this, seeing who can get the highest score. All in all, it's a great game. But please, fix the bugs.
Facebook login Difficulties
by STC's Eagle Scout on 2014/08/20 00:14
For over 4 months and 2 updates I have Currently been unable to play Bejeweled through Facebook on the app. Bejeweled will not recognize my Facebook account to play the online version after 3 updates. It doesn't even load to able to type my password. Each time it will say searching & reach the point to say sorry can not load Facebook your account at the moment please try again latter. Well I thought it was just a one or two time issue but unfortunately it has been doing this for an estimated over 4 months I have tried to long in every other day to play but would not allow me in. I was not sure if a new update would be made soon so I have been just waiting till the latest update was available to download. I like this game a lot and play it almost every day. I have had no troubles playing the offline version of Bejeweled.
What's up with this update!!!!????
by TommyG48 on 2015/11/12 14:14
Absolutely love playing this game. It's used up a lot of time while waiting for family at their appointments. Great game to play and enjoy many hours of playing this game ... However with every update they force on all of us this game became more n more unreliable. This last update just won't download n install and now all the close to two million coins are apparently lost n the game won't even open. I agree w Kris495 I believe who said it keeps returning to the download page. A frustrating loop that's driving me nuts. Either fix it or I'll find another developer to follow also n will tell ALL my friends about this company's failure to resolve issues for players who have been on this game for years. Accomplishments are all lost and there were A LOT.... Gone
STINGIEST GAME EVER - but can be the best
by Jmar7817 on 2012/06/20 05:48
I've been playing bejeweled blitz for nbover two years now and it is by far my favorite game I've ever played on any platform. However, the game is designed by money hungry thugs who make you pay absurd prices to unlock the games most fun features which make the game unique, and of course higher scores. THE PRICES OF THE COINS AND OUTCOME OF THE SPINS ARE OUTRAGEOUS relative to the prices of the boosts let alone rare gems, let alone using both at once. no one should even have to buy coins but for whatever reason the max coins you can get in a game is 1400. a single game can cost up to 80,000. that is robbery. the BEST deal you can get without promotions is just over a million coins for $10. you could use a million in 13 games aka 15 minutes! Not trying to get into the spins and the consistent low winnings whether you buy them or not, but at the current costs of the boss and gems, which should be free anyways and probably should each have their own high score leaderboard because the game becomes completely different with them, the spin jackpot should be 10 million minimum with 25,000 the lowest possible winnig amount. anything less doesn't even buy you three minutes worth of playing the game it should be offered in the first place. talk about not caring about your customers. Here the game is free but if you wanna play it without any restrictions it's gonna be $40 an hour. THIEVES!!
Bummed after years of fun :-(
by JameyWeare on 2015/11/22 10:18
This is been a staple of games that I have played on my iPhone for years. Easily what I would consider one of my top 10 favorite games for killing a couple minutes while in line or something similar. I have seen all the various iterations of monetization be installed over the years and none of them really bothered me. Micro transactions were fine, and even the pop up ads that came up every once in a while we're OK. Today I got two ads in between three games Both of those ads had audio and I could not skip. My iPhone was muted and all of the volume for the app was all the way down, but I still got blasted about Cookie Crunch or something. Please just put up a paid version in the app store that does not give ads. I'll check back in a couple months to see if there's any improvement. If not then I'll sadly delete it and go on to something else.
Addicting, fun but frustrating!
by G-Goil on 2012/07/24 05:19
This game is fun to kill time with. Very addicting. Very challenging always trying to beat my own score. But frustrating as all get up! I used to waste coins on gems and boosts.....until I found out that I spent more in coins and never really boosted my score at all. I get more coins/points by playing without 'em! Also, I noticed what seemed like every other day, my score would go down and I'd have to keep playing to get back to the high scores I had left off with. What's up with that?! Just now I got to spin for coins and after doing so, it said I had 15 more hours until the next spin. I accidently shut off my iPad and when I turned it back on to play the same game, it let me spin again in less than 10 minutes!! Only this time it went back to my old coinage amount and gave me a lower one then the first! Whatever! Has bugs...but it's still fun.
No more score building "Last Hurrays"
by Shaazie on 2013/03/14 19:34
Has this happened to anyone else: I acquired one million plus coins only by the free daily spins and earning coins and not buying the special gems or using game boosts. Since achieving the million plus coins, the "Last Hurrah" no longer happens... No more falling gems matching up and increasing the score, etc when un exploded gems are detonated after time is up, during the supposed last hurrah. I know the game has changed because I've played it long enough to know what the game did before the one million coins and now. The difference is readily noticeable. Also, I keep I unchecking the box to send anonymous game stats, and I play a game, go back into Help, and the box is checked again, to allow stats to be sent. I used to like this game, but not now. Is this how PopCap forces people to spend coins, to get high scores I can no longer achieve before earning one million coins? Before this, I actually had a score of 204,000 without using any helps, and now I'm lucky if I can get 50,000.
A step forward and 3 steps backward!
by Monket on 2011/12/11 09:48
This game was a 5 star before, now it's down to 3. On the Plus side. We got better graphics that look great with the Retina Display, we got also the Daily Spin (FINALLY!) but sometimes doesn't give you all the coins for all your friends that have the app on FB, just for the ones that have played that week. Bad! On the bad side... Mmhh... Where can I start? Ok, pretty much everyone else has said about the game being slower and therefore scores have decreased. About the scores, well, it takes time to get used to, but if you play it well enough your scores will improve back to your old average. I have scored a few 150k's without buying power-ups, but yes, I think the game would be better if it had the old speed. Gone is the explosion at the end of the game. Without it, feels like something is missing, that you need... Closure? Like the game ends all of a sudden. It feels incomplete. Most important thing missing is the levels!!!! WHERE ARE THEY? That's one of the better parts of playing it on FB. Please BRING THAT BACK! I have the feeling that they rush the game out the door. Why? We were happy before and didn't expected (nor wanted) an update. One last thing, I tried to play the old one from either the Bejeweled 2 App or from Facebook and it's gone! It brings back this unfinished piece of software!
Love this game!
by Pisst off even more on 2015/08/27 18:34
I have been playing this game for many years. I have had a few problems but overall not bad. My suggestion is that on the daily challenge you should be able to get your points added to your main game. You can get more coins that way. The other problem is the daily spin. Like I said I have been playing for years and have only gotten the blue gems only one time. I know if the blue gem starts off I lost. My cousin and I compete for first place spot and she always beats me.😛 love this game. The new sun star is way over priced, it makes a nice score but too pricey to get very often. I have bought coins when I can on sale so would be nice if you combined our daily challenge score with our main score as mentioned above. Thanks for the great game hope you're listening to all the followers out there.😉
Darn good
by ChristopherDrum on 2011/12/23 15:28
But jewel movement feels sluggish (iOS 5 on iPhone 4; very few open apps), and touch events seem to get misinterpreted frequently. I drag a jewel left, only to have it swap in a different direction. So attempts to strategically make a power gem can be foiled. I appreciate that the retina graphics are used on the iPad version now as their "native" interface, but it is still just a scaled up iPhone app. Can't rotate devices to play in landscape. And overall it just seems telling that I've never broken 350,000 on iOS devices, but quickly broke 500,000 on my desktop system. If this is an artifact of touch input vs mouse superiority or an artifact of how Bejeweled is implemented on iOS, I really can't say. Glad it is free, but was bummed that my previously purchased game has been killed and replaced with another pay-for app. Not really sure what the tactic there is.
