Bejeweled blitz
by Suetee131 on 2016/05/26 04:43
Great game when it's working and not freezing.
Good game
by Jewelbejeweled on 2016/05/26 03:14
I love this game because it keeps me on my toes. I have been addicted to it and getting better at it since I play it every day.
Love the game...but
by ReaperMan707 on 2016/05/26 03:02
This is a great game! I absolutely love it but all of a sudden there are so many adds that pop up. Never had them till recently.

Still the best

Good for passing the time

I like the challenges of playing with friends.
Excellent

It's one of the best games I've ever played. The graphics are amazing.
Cannot get purchased items
by Kigigirl on 2016/05/25 13:04
I spent to get more spins, it didn't give me the spins. I spent for more coins, it didn't give me the coins. But charged my card for both. I cannot find anywhere to reach the app developer. If someone knows how to "speak to" the app developer please let me know thank you. Frustrated! NOW I can't use any of my boosts thy all say "Unavailable" pop cap you're making me frustrated!!
Stress relief
by Ditzi Blitzer on 2016/05/25 10:50
This is the first game I loaded onto my first smartphone. Though I've deleted many other games over the years, not this one. I love it. I've racked up over 8MM points but don't always "buy" games. I just chip away with no special tools and play special gems occasionally. It's just my stress reliever. But I turn the music all the way down. Is annoying.
Fun to play.
by I am Pink Lady on 2016/05/25 03:02
An enjoyable game that does not require a lot of money.
What happened?
by SuZQ213 on 2016/05/24 09:33
I swear I bought an Ad-free Bejeweled Blitz app several years ago. Now I'm getting a lot of ads. Ads that don't let you leave until a mini-game is loaded. Also not happy with the 'buy coins now for $19.99 or $49.99' that pop up when you are about to click on 'play again'. What a sneaky way to get people to purchase coins. Place that button suddenly right exactly where the 'play again' button is so people will click on it. Luckily I have to put in a password to purchase things or I'd be broke. Some people have theirs turned off.
Fun, but programming lacks
by None48584332 on 2016/05/24 04:56
Fun to play but glitchy and a huge data hog
Ads? Really?
by Dragonshiner on 2016/05/23 18:32
I don't expect a game that I paid for to suddenly start serving me ads. Really annoying.
Bonus daily spins
by Mjmradke on 2016/05/23 16:08
Countless times it will say error and spin not work, that's frustrating !!! Enjoy the game have been playing for years!! Have NEVER gotten the 3blue for the bonus!!! Has anyone??? Have been playing for over 5 years!!!
Fix bug.

Game not working as of thus morning. It opens then automatically shuts down. Love game. Fix bug.
Love this game, but...
by megantalley on 2016/05/23 12:10
The new version crashes before finished loading! FRUSTRATION!
Updated app
by Madpres on 2016/05/23 12:07
Now it won't open!!!! How many times do we have to go through this???? It crashes, I lose my high score, I lose my gems and the coins. Ridiculous!
Game will not open
by Pac9708 on 2016/05/23 12:07
Why won't the game open? It opened yesterday but not today and no updates were done.. Please fix!!!!!!!!
Crashes
by Sammijoyo on 2016/05/23 12:02
Every time I open the app it crashes!
Used to be fun
by Cit175 on 2016/05/23 11:50
This game used to be fun. But now it crashes all the time. You lose your points and your gems which was the challenge and the fun of playing this game.
What's up????
by GDVLW on 2016/05/23 11:48
App won't open. I love playing this game. Please fix. Usually give 5 star but today...
Update poorly done, this is a constant with updates
by Just let me play on 2016/05/23 11:35
Daily challenge won't open. Don't force updates if they are flawed
Great Game Except for...
by tdnote30 on 2016/05/23 11:19
After the latest update, when I click on the app to open it up, there is a glitch and it freezes for a couple seconds then kick me out. Why does this happen after every update? Now, I can't play when I want to because it won't even open for me now. I don't want to have to uninstall and reinstall it after every single update. Very disappointing indeed!!!
Well, here we go again with crashing....
by Mcrpd635 on 2016/05/23 10:59
Again, updated and now the app won't open. Just did the 9.3.2 update and Bejeweled crashes while opening.
Pop ups need to go!
by Cdors96 on 2016/05/23 10:08
Really enjoy this game , have been playing for years now, but the pop ups are getting so annoying that I'm about to stop playing it, it was after an update that they appeared , sometimes they are so annoying I just stop playing it ! Get rid of them !
Game was great... Now its unplayable
by Badumtsslol on 2016/05/23 07:31
At first I would've given the game 5 stars, but recently they've included an ad that completely blocks the ability to continue playing the game until you close the app and restart it just for it to do it over and over again. This needs to be fixed.
Enjoy the game.
by UDontWant2HearIt on 2016/05/23 03:26
New release will not load. Not fixed within a week, removing it. Was fun while it lasted.
Fun! But...
by Klikkittyklakk446 on 2016/05/23 00:29
I love playing this game and it's fun, but I thought I was getting the original Bejeweled. Get this app if you want a minute to win it. But if you want the Original Bejeweled, this is not it.
So Good
by tomerobles on 2016/05/22 23:27
I did not think I would enjoy this ding dang game. Girlfriend got me to try it, "just once." It was stupid. I love it.
Obnoxious
by Biggsdall on 2016/05/22 21:01
This used to be my favorite game until the ads became unbearable I played this game Everytime I had a free moment but now the ads make me think twice offer a password version or at free
Get rid of ads
by Hypnogma on 2016/05/22 18:51
Don't like new version. If ads continue in older version I will discontinue playing. Otherwise it is good for passing time.
Bejeweled blitz
by Dylbug1 on 2016/05/22 18:41
I lost all my contacts and all my scores (points). How can I restore them back? I'm very frustrated and angry. Please help.😡😡
Too many ads
by AmyLiz008 on 2016/05/22 12:28
I paid for this app. It used to be ad-free. Now, too many video ads you can't skip. I close the app and re-launch to avoid them. It takes just as much time as just ignoring the ad while it plays, but I'd rather be able to skip the ones I find irrelevant. And they're all irrelevant to me, so that's my way of skipping them. Anyway, the game is addictive and a good time killer, but I hate the abundant, annoying, irrelevant ads.
Daily Spin says no internet connection
by Forevrqw on 2016/05/22 10:55
I agree with the other positive reviews but would also like the Daily Spin fixed. Says no internet connection & doesn't finish/pay out spin. My wireless works just fine.
Addicting and fun!
by Bluestarz333 on 2016/05/22 02:55
Love this game!!! I still love this game!
Glitchy
by serenissim7 on 2016/05/22 01:42
Love this game but please fix the glitch where if someone calls or texts you while playing, the game crashes. If this happens while you're using a specialty jewel, it disappears before you get the chance to get your coins!
Bejeweled Blitz
by Pastor Fran on 2016/05/22 01:03
This is my favorite game of many I own. Though pure chance, it is competitive and a ton of fun. My only negative comment is that it can be very pricey, so don't play with empty pockets! It's a five star!
-1⭐️ now but used to be ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
by MJSLTX on 2016/05/21 18:16
Update 5-21-17: great game with (creative contests, happy hours, etc.) that now works. But I do have to agree with another reviewer who mentioned that the spins give less points and it appears that moneymaking is a great objective because the booster items have become increasingly expensive! Update as of 3-15-16: Beware of the Ides of March! SAME PROBLEM as below with today's update? DO YOU EVER CHECK to make sure update doesn't cause crashing! How long does it take to figure out that you have a major issue?! There is no game to be played at this point – it crashes!!!!!!
Best puzzle app
by E man67 on 2016/05/21 17:15
Great time burner
Fun game but chokes
by Jhjones1223 on 2016/05/21 16:31
The game works fine for a while but inevitably chokes and has to be reset. After spending coins on additional games it's frustrating to lose everything. Needs a bug upgrade
I love this game
by Shann70 on 2016/05/21 15:38
Love this game I can play for hours
Fun game
by Miss lindie on 2016/05/21 10:26
Daily bonuses with fun scoring. When there are bugs, which do occur the games is whacked.

Won't open
by Daisy1358 on 2016/05/21 02:56
I've been through two updates and still have not been able to open it and play it for over a month or two. About ready to delete and forget it.
Love the game!

It is very fun!
Stars is great but Blitz still rocks !!

Your daily button is not working but I really like this game.
Love it!
by Kjhgdxvh on 2016/05/20 21:27
Great time killer! Kind of addictive. Probably the most played game on my phone. The most recent update messes up in the middle of the game a lot though:(
Pop-ups Incessantly
by AKGriz01 on 2016/05/20 15:51
Fun game when I don't have too constantly click through pop-up ads. Progressive ads are the worst! Stop rigging the game to favor advertisers!!! Horrible!!!!
Here we go again......
by MyGoldie13 on 2016/05/20 08:19
Played this game for years on iPhone and iPad. Really enjoyed it. However the latest version crashes. It will not open. This happened with the last version and it's happening again. Hope they fix it quickly. Seems like it took a while last time. Fun game when it's working.
Addictive
by Lynwindy on 2016/05/20 03:07
Love the variety of games, gems, awards.
Daily Challenge Ruined by Ad
by Aimless is more on 2016/05/20 01:14
I get that Progressive sponsors the game, and that is fine. But I want to play the Daily Challenge as designed, not as a game with "P" gems everywhere to remind me of Progressive. It's sad. And makes the game boring. Also... The bonuses I win after playing a gem I have banked are not showing up in the total. So, I am very disappointed. Please fix this game. It's bad enough that I have NEVER won the jackpot spin even after months of buying wayyyy too many coins. Kinda silly for me to assume that it would be fair. However, this is still my favorite game. For now.
Tries to trick you into purchases
by Wendybelles on 2016/05/20 00:17
Fun game, but they suddenly pop up offers for in-app purchases when you're supposed to touch something else, causing you to select the purchase. If I didn't have my account set up for passcode every time, I'd have been scammed out of a lot of money by now.
Cheat
by Top Cat 47 on 2016/05/19 19:28
I've gone from five stars to two stars now one star. The game is freezing constantly. When I restart my phone and begin playing the game again anywhere from 68,500 points to 100,000 points have been deducted from my score. That's FOWL. I'm not sure if I will open this app EVER again.
Fun til it freezes!
by Janeyaja on 2016/05/19 19:25
Love the game, but hat the crashes/freezing/or whatever you call it. Sometimes takes forever to load. Sure is fun and challenging while working.
Really enjoy the game
by Cranebeach on 2016/05/19 04:23
Have been playing it over a year now. No need to buy coins just learn to play the game, earn, enjoy, chill.
Morel ove the game just wish I could get more gems
by Irate passwords on 2016/05/19 03:09
My husband and I have this same app and yet they are different he has more gems than I do. And his name does not show up on my scores and mine does not show up on his...... Why??
Fun
by cheryljorg on 2016/05/19 02:51
This game is lots of fun but I no longer get daily free spins for more coins. I miss those. Not sure why. I have built up a lot of coins so I don't want to delete the app and reinstall it because I'm afraid I will lose my coins. Otherwise it's fun and quick and I play a little every day just to relax.
Ads in paid version
by Ls326 on 2016/05/19 00:58
Why are there ads in the paid version?
Love it!
by Hayden's-Nana on 2016/05/19 00:56
I'm addicted! Love competing with my friends!
Improving
by Bejeweled Wiz on 2016/05/19 00:01
This game is awesome especially since it syncs with the Facebook app so you can compete with your friends on the high scores! It would be better and I would give this game 5 stars if you had challenges where you had the ability to score extra coins and xp like the Facebook all version and had the ability to play team games with friends like on Facebook.
Winning girl 27
by Carlsc17527 on 2016/05/18 21:11
No fun to play Blitz when the game crashes. I've wasted many points on games that won't play -- the screen goes into slow motion and it's impossible to play a normal game. When will you fix this problem???
Love it

Ads in a "paid for" version
by MyPreciousiPhone6 on 2016/05/18 10:37
Anyone else get annoyed with all of the pop up ads? I paid for this app (to remove ads) forever ago but I guess PopCap thinks that enough time has passed and maybe I won't care now bc I've played the game for so long. Wrong. And two emails to support haven't even garnered a response from PopCap. So sad. Seems the more games they develop, the worse their maintenance is on the previous ones, i.e. Solitaire Blitz and now Bejeweled Blitz.
You stole my points. I had several 100000 thousand

Crashes
by JCNOT on 2016/05/18 02:31
Since new update, constantly crashes, can't keep it open to play.☹️☹️☹️ Fix this or I have to delete then lose all points I've gotten. Happened before! Now with new update, still crashes & I lost over $400,000 to start over. Looks like I'm done with this!
Not as fun as it used to be
by Ablelene on 2016/05/17 23:40
They have made the game now so you have to buy coins to get the good gems. It used to be fun to play. It's not fun without the gems. Thinking of just deleting the app so I won't be bothered by it.
Bejeweled Blitz
by Hank Faleski on 2016/05/17 21:50
Just a great game. Very competitive with friends.
Was great until latest update.
by Mama189 on 2016/05/17 21:24
All my rare gems disappeared. Did enjoy the game until this latest update. Keeps crashing. It is addictive. Edit: sometimes looks like it wants you to connect to FB or you're dumped mid game if not before. Had mega coins and they have all disappeared. Fed up with this game, coins and gems disappear.
Do not make coin/gem purchases!
by Amyblueyez on 2016/05/17 17:45
It's a fun game to play, but do not make purchases with your own money!! The bonuses don't download & then NOBODY responds to the quite numerous messages you send to try to get your money back!!!!
Crap
by mom23rr on 2016/05/17 17:35
Keeps crashing and app will not open up.
Love this game
by Math4tchr on 2016/05/17 15:56
Hate the way this game connects to Facebook after latest update.
Horrible!
by Jaetee.nsf on 2016/05/17 12:28
Absolutely horrible... Lost my 32/33 million coins and 120+ banked jewels... No response from Customer Support... Horrible to say the least...
Great game w a few annoying faults...
by MishiRN on 2016/05/17 05:43
Shoddy slot machine results...Everytime I get either all red or blue stones, the third stone lands on the 3rd of the above mentioned sequence (which would result in a jackpot), but only about 3/4 of it shows...so I never get the grand prize. Very frustrating. Also, there have been quite a few errors in the game. Errors like completely wiping out my coins, or my gems...However, I must say that the customer service is amazing, and got back to me immediately. They refunded all of my lost gems and coins, and extras for my troubles. Excellent! A small suggestion...when playing the daily challenge, the amount of rare gems given during the game is wonderful. However, when playing those rare gems in a regular tournament, they seem to be few and far in between… Resulting in much lower scores than when playing the daily challenge. I would like to see the same amount of rare gems in the regular tournament games as the daily challenges for the ability to get higher scores. All in all, I really enjoy this game, and play it on a daily basis. Hopefully the developers will see these suggestions, and take them to heart! Thanks!!💎

Have not been able to play daily challenge for a long time. Love the game
by M'seyesandears on 2016/05/16 11:58
Again cannot get the daily challenge. It keeps saying be patient it is downloading. It has been days. This time it came on and went right back off AGAIN Same problem
Great. Easy. No brainer
by PlanejaneOnTradesy on 2016/05/16 09:47
Easy to play. Relaxes the brain. Less stressful than most games..endless lives. Great no brainier game!
Ambush advertising warning!!!
by SaraKateinDixieLand on 2016/05/16 03:03
I have had this game for years and loved it, however over the last year the ambush advertising has become too much to handle. I will not buy a PopCap game ever again in the future. The pop-up video ads are just too much and you are not allowed to opt immediately out, not to mention the advertising that has such a tiny close button you always clink into the advertising pit of hell. Grow up PopCap! You made a great game horrible just by selling your soul to the advertising devil.

It's a great game and all, but why should a paying app player have to watch any previews that pop up.

Overall Disappointment
by lasale on 2016/05/15 04:45
Why now is this game taking my data! How do I know my review is accepted? When I click on "Write a Review," my old review is still there.
Free coin option
by 562pelon on 2016/05/15 02:15
Since the last update, the free coin videos might reward you 10% of the time so it's not worth watching them anymore. And no, I've never seen a triple blue diamond spin
Great game
by Buckeye3912 on 2016/05/15 01:50
A great game to play. It really takes a lot of skill to try to get higher scores.
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
Ahhhh, Much Better!

March 18th update has fixed the bug that had rendered the game useless. We can play the game again. Thanks for listening!! ***UPDATE #2*** After reading that some had lost their stored gems, decided to check it out. All my stored gems were there. After being on that screen for a moment, though, got a pop-up telling me new content had been downloaded and was needing to be loaded. Pressed the button to load the new content and voilà, the game is now operating as it should...including the Daily Challenge. I never had an issue signing in with Facebook. I'm giving this only 4 stars because, while everything is back up and running, PopCap could do a better job explaining how to get their updates to actually function. It appears that there is more to it than just running the update feature. ***UPDATE #1*** I apparently spoke too soon. While it is true that we CAN play the game again, we can no longer play the daily challenge (Daily Spin works fine, though). Like others have stated, you can press the "Play Daily Challenge" button, but it does nothing...keeps you on the main screen. Taking my stars down to three for now.

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.
Love It!!
by boo921 on 2016/04/06 13:52
The adds I get why you have them. I feel that after playing this game for many years that if you have reached a point in coins you might be kind in leaving, the adds, out of our gaming! I will never buy any of the adds from this form! I'm old schooled, I have earned my coins, this alone should be reason enough to leave us alone to continue enjoying this fun, relaxing, sometimes frustrating, mindless, awesome game! It's a go to, while standing in lines, driving down the road, as a passenger, Now that we can see the badges All is well! Just a fun mind less game, from my laptop to my IPod touch, an now on the iPad, and my 6s phone! As for buying coins I don't, I just play I don't buy any coins Never will, and have accumulated 27million of them. Yes I do use the power ups as the buy button this located just at play spot. This could be changed. I do agree with it would be nice to have a bonus of tokens somewhere after we get to gold. Love to play this game! I am one of many who has walked across The Great Wall of China playing Blitz!
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!
Update: Back to being mindless fun.
by 4genfl on 2016/03/29 13:43
Update: when last update occurred as with many mine failed to open. Considering my hoard of points this was mind blowing that I loose them if deleted as one agent stated I do to app. Thank goodness I sent another email. Next agt told me to wait for next update and should retain all points and gem collection. It did! My over 35 million points are safe. Oh, and once a week I take screen shots to prove point totals. I have over 35 million in gems and newest version crashes. They have had issues before and unless you can prove what you have and even then have to log on to Facebook to get anything back. After all these years better not loose my total or my accumulated gems!!! Had an email response to my inquiry and it is a to bad so sad on my points. As I don't login to Facebook nothing they can do. Wow, did not realize they were so lame in their programming. Again I have over 35 million points and just gone because they cannot do testing before they put out an update. I have no words, not even bad ones that can express my feelings.
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.
Favorite To Flop: Updates And Ads
by FallenStone15 on 2016/03/29 01:13
Have been playing game for years however, with the last several updates I've had to uninstall and then reinstall bc Blitz would NOT open at all! The most current update (March 2016), has now left my Blitz filled with ads after each time I play a round! NOT COOL, POPCAP! NOT COOL! I have over 50 Million coins and many special gems, I used the daily spin and the play for the daily special gem everyday. I am frustrated that after putting so much time, energy and an iTunes gift card into this app I am having to see so many ads! I watch the ads in the "free coins". I am certain other Blitzers would agree those ads are enough for people to watch! Even putting the ads on the main page and having "Progressive" sponsor coins is pushing the boundaries but that is so much better than the pop-ups!!! Fix the pop-up ads and the update difficulties (so I don't have to remove Colorfy-because Bejeweled wanted to open in that app-and reinstall Bejeweled Blitz again, then figure out how to reconnect Blitz through Facebook) and I will come back to review Blitz again. When the game is working correctly, it is very fun.

When it's all working it's great! Sometimes bugs seem to go on forever though. I think it's unfair that they charge up to 120,000 coins for some special gems and you can "win" back as little as 1,000 of them in a hand. Rewards that low shouldn't exist. It's also wrong that you can only earn 1,200 at most per hand. I "get" the idea that they want to sell coins and make $, but I think the balance is woefully out of whack. Plus I recently played in emerald hands of the Chromosphere and NEVER hit the double jackpot of 400,000. I mean I played a lot of them - around 10,000,000 coins worth. So does ANYONE EVER win the double jackpots as advertised? I've been playing this for about 10 years and only once did I spin the three blue gems to win 1,000,000, I've only had the green and red spins 2x each in all of that time. I think that now that they are selling adds in the game and making money on that its high time to loosen the purse strings on the regular hands, spins and general coin winnings.
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!
Still fun after a long time playing
by Nota happy farmer on 2016/05/14 02:52
I love a challenge at finding three gems together. I also love the variety of colors used in the game. The music sound track is good and also it keeps you moving. My only complaint is the special boosters like the blazing steed, etc... they cost too much. Overall, the game is good entertainment. Thank you. Still playing and having fun. Love the daily challenge! Still playing and challenging myself with the daily challenge. The gem boosters are still pricey and take a lot of play just to earn the coins to use them. Keep up the good work and support. After at least 3 years, I still play. Has anyone ever gotten 3 blue diamonds on their daily spin? I know you have to support the game, but I don't have the funds to do that. Therefore I play for what I have and take advantage of free offers to earn coins. It just takes time away from actually playing the game.I still enjoy the visuals especially with rare gems. Still pricey but there's gotta be something to work for I guess.
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.
Pop Cap Butterfly's Game Is Rigged For Certain Lose
by SLDdigital Photography on 2016/03/28 19:15
What is it with the creators of games these days that rig the games for certain lose. Butterfly's Bejeweled Game is one such a game. There isn't a China-mans chance in all the world a player can win at that game. When the player spots a move that can prevent the spider from catching the butterfly it doesn't matter - don't bother trying to save the move because the creators have programmed the game to disable the correction/save moves so the butterfly is going to be caught....and when the player has a butterfly almost caught the creators have made sure the player is out of moves that can prevent a end of game. They have rigged it so that a player will just never get ahead or win...ever...doesn't that kinda make you say to yourself "why bother"? You can play for weeks and you will not win so do yourself a favor and choose another game...one that is rewarding instead of one created by a bunch of sadits .
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!
Crashes when trying to load
by Boothacus on 2016/03/15 15:18
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.
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.
WAS really addicting.....was.
by Photoracer1 on 2016/03/16 18:58
When I tried to open the app with the new, most recent update, I found it would simply fail to load and then quit altogether. Thinking it was something I must have done, I shut the phone off and turned it back on, thinking it was a glitch. Well, there is a glitch, but it isn't on my end! This 'update' is effectively ending this app's usefulness and enjoyment. I had this app for a few years and built up almost 9M tokens without ever buying any. Not only can I not access my tokens, but I can't play the game. Now, I fear I've lost all of them. If anyone within the company cares at all, fix the glitch, and make sure you restore everyone's tokens! This is a good faith suggestion I would HIGHLY recommend! I also have the Classic Bejewelled and it is unaffected, EXCEPT the Blitz that is contained within it. Same problem! Come on PopCap, get your act together and TEST your updates before wreaking havoc on your loyal customers. Just remember, there are other game companies out there that would love to have us play their games. Do the right thing and please fix this issue!
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.
Bland
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.
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.
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.
Updated..kept crashing until...
by ~Kristy~ on 2016/03/19 00:51
When my phone did the auto update, needless to say, my game wouldn't open & kept crashing.. I had read other reviews & I, too, was afraid of losing all my coins & rare gems (which I have a ton of & have never spent a dime!) if I uninstalled & reinstalled this game..but after 3 days of not being able to play, or collect my daily spins, I decided to do it.. and it worked!! As soon as I logged into FB, my coin balance went back up to almost 5M & I got all my rare gems back! So, I am one happy camper..lol. I'm hooked on this game. I love it & I love the daily challenges & opportunities to collect the gems. Keep up the great game!, but in the future, please try to test out the updates before releasing it & thus causing unnecessary disappointment to your loyal fans/customers. Just a suggestion. Thanks for everything! 👍😊
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...
Great time killer
by cyber553 on 2016/05/12 11:01
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, but it still crashes shortly after resuming the game if it gets interrupted (ex: getting a phone call while playing). Also, the Facebook login procedure still needs work. Issues: 1) Requires too many taps (4!) to log in... Menu, Log-in, "OK" on FB page, "Open" pop-up to get back into Bejeweled (and another couple taps if you include having to close the window it leaves open in Safari!) 2) Login is still unreliable, it only succeeds after several attempts and often requires killing and restarting Bejeweled Blitz to make it work 3) Logging in leaves a browser window open in Safari. The login process should clean-up after itself and close this window after login is completed 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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.

Great game when it's working and not freezing.
Good game

I love this game because it keeps me on my toes. I have been addicted to it and getting better at it since I play it every day.
Love the game...but

Cannot get purchased items
by Kigigirl on 2016/05/25 13:04
I spent to get more spins, it didn't give me the spins. I spent for more coins, it didn't give me the coins. But charged my card for both. I cannot find anywhere to reach the app developer. If someone knows how to "speak to" the app developer please let me know thank you. Frustrated! NOW I can't use any of my boosts thy all say "Unavailable" pop cap you're making me frustrated!!
Stress relief
by Ditzi Blitzer on 2016/05/25 10:50
This is the first game I loaded onto my first smartphone. Though I've deleted many other games over the years, not this one. I love it. I've racked up over 8MM points but don't always "buy" games. I just chip away with no special tools and play special gems occasionally. It's just my stress reliever. But I turn the music all the way down. Is annoying.
Fun to play.

An enjoyable game that does not require a lot of money.
What happened?
by SuZQ213 on 2016/05/24 09:33
I swear I bought an Ad-free Bejeweled Blitz app several years ago. Now I'm getting a lot of ads. Ads that don't let you leave until a mini-game is loaded. Also not happy with the 'buy coins now for $19.99 or $49.99' that pop up when you are about to click on 'play again'. What a sneaky way to get people to purchase coins. Place that button suddenly right exactly where the 'play again' button is so people will click on it. Luckily I have to put in a password to purchase things or I'd be broke. Some people have theirs turned off.
Fun, but programming lacks
by None48584332 on 2016/05/24 04:56
Fun to play but glitchy and a huge data hog
Ads? Really?
by Dragonshiner on 2016/05/23 18:32
I don't expect a game that I paid for to suddenly start serving me ads. Really annoying.

Why won't the game open? It opened yesterday but not today and no updates were done.. Please fix!!!!!!!!

This game used to be fun. But now it crashes all the time. You lose your points and your gems which was the challenge and the fun of playing this game.
What's up????

Great Game Except for...
by tdnote30 on 2016/05/23 11:19
After the latest update, when I click on the app to open it up, there is a glitch and it freezes for a couple seconds then kick me out. Why does this happen after every update? Now, I can't play when I want to because it won't even open for me now. I don't want to have to uninstall and reinstall it after every single update. Very disappointing indeed!!!
Well, here we go again with crashing....
by Mcrpd635 on 2016/05/23 10:59
Again, updated and now the app won't open. Just did the 9.3.2 update and Bejeweled crashes while opening.
Pop ups need to go!
by Cdors96 on 2016/05/23 10:08
Really enjoy this game , have been playing for years now, but the pop ups are getting so annoying that I'm about to stop playing it, it was after an update that they appeared , sometimes they are so annoying I just stop playing it ! Get rid of them !
Game was great... Now its unplayable
by Badumtsslol on 2016/05/23 07:31
At first I would've given the game 5 stars, but recently they've included an ad that completely blocks the ability to continue playing the game until you close the app and restart it just for it to do it over and over again. This needs to be fixed.
Enjoy the game.
by UDontWant2HearIt on 2016/05/23 03:26
New release will not load. Not fixed within a week, removing it. Was fun while it lasted.
Fun! But...
by Klikkittyklakk446 on 2016/05/23 00:29
I love playing this game and it's fun, but I thought I was getting the original Bejeweled. Get this app if you want a minute to win it. But if you want the Original Bejeweled, this is not it.
So Good
by tomerobles on 2016/05/22 23:27
I did not think I would enjoy this ding dang game. Girlfriend got me to try it, "just once." It was stupid. I love it.
Obnoxious
by Biggsdall on 2016/05/22 21:01
This used to be my favorite game until the ads became unbearable I played this game Everytime I had a free moment but now the ads make me think twice offer a password version or at free
Get rid of ads
by Hypnogma on 2016/05/22 18:51
Don't like new version. If ads continue in older version I will discontinue playing. Otherwise it is good for passing time.

I lost all my contacts and all my scores (points). How can I restore them back? I'm very frustrated and angry. Please help.😡😡
Too many ads
by AmyLiz008 on 2016/05/22 12:28
I paid for this app. It used to be ad-free. Now, too many video ads you can't skip. I close the app and re-launch to avoid them. It takes just as much time as just ignoring the ad while it plays, but I'd rather be able to skip the ones I find irrelevant. And they're all irrelevant to me, so that's my way of skipping them. Anyway, the game is addictive and a good time killer, but I hate the abundant, annoying, irrelevant ads.
Daily Spin says no internet connection
by Forevrqw on 2016/05/22 10:55
I agree with the other positive reviews but would also like the Daily Spin fixed. Says no internet connection & doesn't finish/pay out spin. My wireless works just fine.
Addicting and fun!

Love this game!!! I still love this game!
Glitchy
by serenissim7 on 2016/05/22 01:42
Love this game but please fix the glitch where if someone calls or texts you while playing, the game crashes. If this happens while you're using a specialty jewel, it disappears before you get the chance to get your coins!
Bejeweled Blitz
by Pastor Fran on 2016/05/22 01:03
This is my favorite game of many I own. Though pure chance, it is competitive and a ton of fun. My only negative comment is that it can be very pricey, so don't play with empty pockets! It's a five star!
-1⭐️ now but used to be ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
by MJSLTX on 2016/05/21 18:16
Update 5-21-17: great game with (creative contests, happy hours, etc.) that now works. But I do have to agree with another reviewer who mentioned that the spins give less points and it appears that moneymaking is a great objective because the booster items have become increasingly expensive! Update as of 3-15-16: Beware of the Ides of March! SAME PROBLEM as below with today's update? DO YOU EVER CHECK to make sure update doesn't cause crashing! How long does it take to figure out that you have a major issue?! There is no game to be played at this point – it crashes!!!!!!

by Jhjones1223 on 2016/05/21 16:31
The game works fine for a while but inevitably chokes and has to be reset. After spending coins on additional games it's frustrating to lose everything. Needs a bug upgrade

Pop-ups Incessantly
by AKGriz01 on 2016/05/20 15:51
Fun game when I don't have too constantly click through pop-up ads. Progressive ads are the worst! Stop rigging the game to favor advertisers!!! Horrible!!!!
Here we go again......
by MyGoldie13 on 2016/05/20 08:19
Played this game for years on iPhone and iPad. Really enjoyed it. However the latest version crashes. It will not open. This happened with the last version and it's happening again. Hope they fix it quickly. Seems like it took a while last time. Fun game when it's working.

Daily Challenge Ruined by Ad
by Aimless is more on 2016/05/20 01:14
I get that Progressive sponsors the game, and that is fine. But I want to play the Daily Challenge as designed, not as a game with "P" gems everywhere to remind me of Progressive. It's sad. And makes the game boring. Also... The bonuses I win after playing a gem I have banked are not showing up in the total. So, I am very disappointed. Please fix this game. It's bad enough that I have NEVER won the jackpot spin even after months of buying wayyyy too many coins. Kinda silly for me to assume that it would be fair. However, this is still my favorite game. For now.
Tries to trick you into purchases
by Wendybelles on 2016/05/20 00:17
Fun game, but they suddenly pop up offers for in-app purchases when you're supposed to touch something else, causing you to select the purchase. If I didn't have my account set up for passcode every time, I'd have been scammed out of a lot of money by now.
Cheat
by Top Cat 47 on 2016/05/19 19:28
I've gone from five stars to two stars now one star. The game is freezing constantly. When I restart my phone and begin playing the game again anywhere from 68,500 points to 100,000 points have been deducted from my score. That's FOWL. I'm not sure if I will open this app EVER again.
Fun til it freezes!
by Janeyaja on 2016/05/19 19:25
Love the game, but hat the crashes/freezing/or whatever you call it. Sometimes takes forever to load. Sure is fun and challenging while working.
Really enjoy the game
by Cranebeach on 2016/05/19 04:23
Have been playing it over a year now. No need to buy coins just learn to play the game, earn, enjoy, chill.
Morel ove the game just wish I could get more gems
by Irate passwords on 2016/05/19 03:09
My husband and I have this same app and yet they are different he has more gems than I do. And his name does not show up on my scores and mine does not show up on his...... Why??
Fun
by cheryljorg on 2016/05/19 02:51
This game is lots of fun but I no longer get daily free spins for more coins. I miss those. Not sure why. I have built up a lot of coins so I don't want to delete the app and reinstall it because I'm afraid I will lose my coins. Otherwise it's fun and quick and I play a little every day just to relax.

Improving
by Bejeweled Wiz on 2016/05/19 00:01
This game is awesome especially since it syncs with the Facebook app so you can compete with your friends on the high scores! It would be better and I would give this game 5 stars if you had challenges where you had the ability to score extra coins and xp like the Facebook all version and had the ability to play team games with friends like on Facebook.

Ads in a "paid for" version
by MyPreciousiPhone6 on 2016/05/18 10:37
Anyone else get annoyed with all of the pop up ads? I paid for this app (to remove ads) forever ago but I guess PopCap thinks that enough time has passed and maybe I won't care now bc I've played the game for so long. Wrong. And two emails to support haven't even garnered a response from PopCap. So sad. Seems the more games they develop, the worse their maintenance is on the previous ones, i.e. Solitaire Blitz and now Bejeweled Blitz.

Not as fun as it used to be
by Ablelene on 2016/05/17 23:40
They have made the game now so you have to buy coins to get the good gems. It used to be fun to play. It's not fun without the gems. Thinking of just deleting the app so I won't be bothered by it.

All my rare gems disappeared. Did enjoy the game until this latest update. Keeps crashing. It is addictive. Edit: sometimes looks like it wants you to connect to FB or you're dumped mid game if not before. Had mega coins and they have all disappeared. Fed up with this game, coins and gems disappear.
Do not make coin/gem purchases!
by Amyblueyez on 2016/05/17 17:45
It's a fun game to play, but do not make purchases with your own money!! The bonuses don't download & then NOBODY responds to the quite numerous messages you send to try to get your money back!!!!

Absolutely horrible... Lost my 32/33 million coins and 120+ banked jewels... No response from Customer Support... Horrible to say the least...
Great game w a few annoying faults...
by MishiRN on 2016/05/17 05:43
Shoddy slot machine results...Everytime I get either all red or blue stones, the third stone lands on the 3rd of the above mentioned sequence (which would result in a jackpot), but only about 3/4 of it shows...so I never get the grand prize. Very frustrating. Also, there have been quite a few errors in the game. Errors like completely wiping out my coins, or my gems...However, I must say that the customer service is amazing, and got back to me immediately. They refunded all of my lost gems and coins, and extras for my troubles. Excellent! A small suggestion...when playing the daily challenge, the amount of rare gems given during the game is wonderful. However, when playing those rare gems in a regular tournament, they seem to be few and far in between… Resulting in much lower scores than when playing the daily challenge. I would like to see the same amount of rare gems in the regular tournament games as the daily challenges for the ability to get higher scores. All in all, I really enjoy this game, and play it on a daily basis. Hopefully the developers will see these suggestions, and take them to heart! Thanks!!💎

Ambush advertising warning!!!
by SaraKateinDixieLand on 2016/05/16 03:03
I have had this game for years and loved it, however over the last year the ambush advertising has become too much to handle. I will not buy a PopCap game ever again in the future. The pop-up video ads are just too much and you are not allowed to opt immediately out, not to mention the advertising that has such a tiny close button you always clink into the advertising pit of hell. Grow up PopCap! You made a great game horrible just by selling your soul to the advertising devil.

Free coin option
by 562pelon on 2016/05/15 02:15
Since the last update, the free coin videos might reward you 10% of the time so it's not worth watching them anymore. And no, I've never seen a triple blue diamond spin
Great game
by Buckeye3912 on 2016/05/15 01:50
A great game to play. It really takes a lot of skill to try to get higher scores.
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
Ahhhh, Much Better!
by Musigal5301 on 2016/03/22 12:31
March 18th update has fixed the bug that had rendered the game useless. We can play the game again. Thanks for listening!! ***UPDATE #2*** After reading that some had lost their stored gems, decided to check it out. All my stored gems were there. After being on that screen for a moment, though, got a pop-up telling me new content had been downloaded and was needing to be loaded. Pressed the button to load the new content and voilà, the game is now operating as it should...including the Daily Challenge. I never had an issue signing in with Facebook. I'm giving this only 4 stars because, while everything is back up and running, PopCap could do a better job explaining how to get their updates to actually function. It appears that there is more to it than just running the update feature. ***UPDATE #1*** I apparently spoke too soon. While it is true that we CAN play the game again, we can no longer play the daily challenge (Daily Spin works fine, though). Like others have stated, you can press the "Play Daily Challenge" button, but it does nothing...keeps you on the main screen. Taking my stars down to three for now.
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. :-)

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.
Love It!!

The adds I get why you have them. I feel that after playing this game for many years that if you have reached a point in coins you might be kind in leaving, the adds, out of our gaming! I will never buy any of the adds from this form! I'm old schooled, I have earned my coins, this alone should be reason enough to leave us alone to continue enjoying this fun, relaxing, sometimes frustrating, mindless, awesome game! It's a go to, while standing in lines, driving down the road, as a passenger, Now that we can see the badges All is well! Just a fun mind less game, from my laptop to my IPod touch, an now on the iPad, and my 6s phone! As for buying coins I don't, I just play I don't buy any coins Never will, and have accumulated 27million of them. Yes I do use the power ups as the buy button this located just at play spot. This could be changed. I do agree with it would be nice to have a bonus of tokens somewhere after we get to gold. Love to play this game! I am one of many who has walked across The Great Wall of China playing Blitz!
Still a favorite!

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!

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!
Update: Back to being mindless fun.
by 4genfl on 2016/03/29 13:43
Update: when last update occurred as with many mine failed to open. Considering my hoard of points this was mind blowing that I loose them if deleted as one agent stated I do to app. Thank goodness I sent another email. Next agt told me to wait for next update and should retain all points and gem collection. It did! My over 35 million points are safe. Oh, and once a week I take screen shots to prove point totals. I have over 35 million in gems and newest version crashes. They have had issues before and unless you can prove what you have and even then have to log on to Facebook to get anything back. After all these years better not loose my total or my accumulated gems!!! Had an email response to my inquiry and it is a to bad so sad on my points. As I don't login to Facebook nothing they can do. Wow, did not realize they were so lame in their programming. Again I have over 35 million points and just gone because they cannot do testing before they put out an update. I have no words, not even bad ones that can express my feelings.
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.
Favorite To Flop: Updates And Ads
by FallenStone15 on 2016/03/29 01:13
Have been playing game for years however, with the last several updates I've had to uninstall and then reinstall bc Blitz would NOT open at all! The most current update (March 2016), has now left my Blitz filled with ads after each time I play a round! NOT COOL, POPCAP! NOT COOL! I have over 50 Million coins and many special gems, I used the daily spin and the play for the daily special gem everyday. I am frustrated that after putting so much time, energy and an iTunes gift card into this app I am having to see so many ads! I watch the ads in the "free coins". I am certain other Blitzers would agree those ads are enough for people to watch! Even putting the ads on the main page and having "Progressive" sponsor coins is pushing the boundaries but that is so much better than the pop-ups!!! Fix the pop-up ads and the update difficulties (so I don't have to remove Colorfy-because Bejeweled wanted to open in that app-and reinstall Bejeweled Blitz again, then figure out how to reconnect Blitz through Facebook) and I will come back to review Blitz again. When the game is working correctly, it is very fun.

When it's all working it's great! Sometimes bugs seem to go on forever though. I think it's unfair that they charge up to 120,000 coins for some special gems and you can "win" back as little as 1,000 of them in a hand. Rewards that low shouldn't exist. It's also wrong that you can only earn 1,200 at most per hand. I "get" the idea that they want to sell coins and make $, but I think the balance is woefully out of whack. Plus I recently played in emerald hands of the Chromosphere and NEVER hit the double jackpot of 400,000. I mean I played a lot of them - around 10,000,000 coins worth. So does ANYONE EVER win the double jackpots as advertised? I've been playing this for about 10 years and only once did I spin the three blue gems to win 1,000,000, I've only had the green and red spins 2x each in all of that time. I think that now that they are selling adds in the game and making money on that its high time to loosen the purse strings on the regular hands, spins and general coin winnings.
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!
Still fun after a long time playing
by Nota happy farmer on 2016/05/14 02:52
I love a challenge at finding three gems together. I also love the variety of colors used in the game. The music sound track is good and also it keeps you moving. My only complaint is the special boosters like the blazing steed, etc... they cost too much. Overall, the game is good entertainment. Thank you. Still playing and having fun. Love the daily challenge! Still playing and challenging myself with the daily challenge. The gem boosters are still pricey and take a lot of play just to earn the coins to use them. Keep up the good work and support. After at least 3 years, I still play. Has anyone ever gotten 3 blue diamonds on their daily spin? I know you have to support the game, but I don't have the funds to do that. Therefore I play for what I have and take advantage of free offers to earn coins. It just takes time away from actually playing the game.I still enjoy the visuals especially with rare gems. Still pricey but there's gotta be something to work for I guess.
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.
Pop Cap Butterfly's Game Is Rigged For Certain Lose
by SLDdigital Photography on 2016/03/28 19:15
What is it with the creators of games these days that rig the games for certain lose. Butterfly's Bejeweled Game is one such a game. There isn't a China-mans chance in all the world a player can win at that game. When the player spots a move that can prevent the spider from catching the butterfly it doesn't matter - don't bother trying to save the move because the creators have programmed the game to disable the correction/save moves so the butterfly is going to be caught....and when the player has a butterfly almost caught the creators have made sure the player is out of moves that can prevent a end of game. They have rigged it so that a player will just never get ahead or win...ever...doesn't that kinda make you say to yourself "why bother"? You can play for weeks and you will not win so do yourself a favor and choose another game...one that is rewarding instead of one created by a bunch of sadits .
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!
Crashes when trying to load
by Boothacus on 2016/03/15 15:18
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.
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.
WAS really addicting.....was.
by Photoracer1 on 2016/03/16 18:58
When I tried to open the app with the new, most recent update, I found it would simply fail to load and then quit altogether. Thinking it was something I must have done, I shut the phone off and turned it back on, thinking it was a glitch. Well, there is a glitch, but it isn't on my end! This 'update' is effectively ending this app's usefulness and enjoyment. I had this app for a few years and built up almost 9M tokens without ever buying any. Not only can I not access my tokens, but I can't play the game. Now, I fear I've lost all of them. If anyone within the company cares at all, fix the glitch, and make sure you restore everyone's tokens! This is a good faith suggestion I would HIGHLY recommend! I also have the Classic Bejewelled and it is unaffected, EXCEPT the Blitz that is contained within it. Same problem! Come on PopCap, get your act together and TEST your updates before wreaking havoc on your loyal customers. Just remember, there are other game companies out there that would love to have us play their games. Do the right thing and please fix this issue!
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.

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.
Past Posters Plz Read!!!

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.
Do not update.

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.
Updated..kept crashing until...
by ~Kristy~ on 2016/03/19 00:51
When my phone did the auto update, needless to say, my game wouldn't open & kept crashing.. I had read other reviews & I, too, was afraid of losing all my coins & rare gems (which I have a ton of & have never spent a dime!) if I uninstalled & reinstalled this game..but after 3 days of not being able to play, or collect my daily spins, I decided to do it.. and it worked!! As soon as I logged into FB, my coin balance went back up to almost 5M & I got all my rare gems back! So, I am one happy camper..lol. I'm hooked on this game. I love it & I love the daily challenges & opportunities to collect the gems. Keep up the great game!, but in the future, please try to test out the updates before releasing it & thus causing unnecessary disappointment to your loyal fans/customers. Just a suggestion. Thanks for everything! 👍😊
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...
Great time killer
by cyber553 on 2016/05/12 11:01
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, but it still crashes shortly after resuming the game if it gets interrupted (ex: getting a phone call while playing). Also, the Facebook login procedure still needs work. Issues: 1) Requires too many taps (4!) to log in... Menu, Log-in, "OK" on FB page, "Open" pop-up to get back into Bejeweled (and another couple taps if you include having to close the window it leaves open in Safari!) 2) Login is still unreliable, it only succeeds after several attempts and often requires killing and restarting Bejeweled Blitz to make it work 3) Logging in leaves a browser window open in Safari. The login process should clean-up after itself and close this window after login is completed 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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
