Love This Game!!!

Awesome time killer. Challenges are great. Power ups keep it interesting. The visuals and music are second to none.
Great way to kill some time

STOP SHUTTING OFF MY MUSIC!!!
by Creynal on 2015/04/27 22:06
I do not have any interest in listening to your irritating soundtrack to your game. I just want to play it while listening to my own music and podcasts.
Love this game

MOST FUN GAME EVER! I LOVE THE GAME
Latest update is a disaster
by Grrrr100 on 2015/04/27 04:02
I used to be able to listen to Pandora or my music, but now it closes any music playing in the background. I won't be playing this game anymore.
Please fix the game.
by Dfucella on 2015/04/27 01:54
I have been a loyal player for about a year until about a month ago when the game stopped opening after the last update. I just tried updating again but it still will not open. I play on an iPod touch 4th gen. It does, however, open fine while offline, just not online.
Love it

No music, no fun
by BatFlipper on 2015/04/26 18:08
This game doesn't allow you to play your own music while playing the game. No way around it. Lost its charm after a few rounds.

I love all the Bejeweled games but Blitz won't allow me to do the slot machine. Keeps saying check the Internet connection.
Pure love of color

Love, fast , love color, love playing with friends
Annoying bug
by Vampyrvet on 2015/04/26 14:11
I like to mute the game sounds and listen to music or audiobooks while playing. Since the last couple of updates, this is no longer possible. As soon as I launch the game it stops playback of my music and there is no way to start it again without quitting the game first. Very annoying
No more outside music?
by TravelinGypsy_ on 2015/04/26 12:37
I love this game, but somewhere after the last upgrade, I can no longer play my own music/podcasts. This has greatly reduced my playing time.
Gave me 100,000 coins for logging in to Facebook and Took them away!!!
by Dcduck on 2015/04/26 09:23
Keeps telling me I have no internet connection when I do! How do I fix this?!? It also gave me 100,000 coins for logging in with Facrbook but now tells me I have NO internet connection, whether at home on WI-FI OR OUT USING CELLULAR DATA, makes no difference, and I can't spin the wheel or get any other gems! HELP!!! Was better before I updated it ! I had 186,000 last time I checked, then Danville got flooded and some internet connections stopped working! I don't know if em

by Deeee29 on 2015/04/25 23:13
I love playing this game but I hate that It doesn't allow me to play my music in the background. I have sounds off for the game but it still won't let iTunes (or other music apps) play while I play the game.

by Deenatchr on 2015/04/25 09:29

by Mdlp!!! on 2015/04/24 22:14
I love the game but I am disappointed how many times I purchase coins or spends 1 million coins. I should be rewarded for spending money on the game.
Spin
by jeramerica on 2015/04/24 20:28
Keep getting the same result from the spin???? Whats the problem
Great
by Hoe numba three on 2015/04/24 19:56
One of my favorite games. Good for eye hand coordination. If you want to spend a little money now and then, it scores better but is still fun and interesting even for free.

Boring, no changes
by Memememememems on 2015/04/22 19:26
Not only is this game boring because they haven't updated anything but the daily spin is a joke. 9 out of 10 times when I spin I get blue, blue, red. Now what are the odds of that?
Are you ever going to fix....?
by CJT 76 on 2015/04/22 18:57

by Flimflammy on 2015/04/22 13:38
I used to love this game, but since the last update every daily spin I get exactly the same thing. 2 blues and the 3rd slot stops between the red and white. And I don't understand why you don't get the coins or where they go when you win the daily challenge.
Bejeweled Blitz problems
by Happyhykr on 2015/04/22 12:10
I used to love playing you game but it seems every time I go to this app it tells me I have an internet problems. That a connection was lost. I cannot get my free spins or play the game because of it. It is not my internet it is the app. Everything else on my iPad works that has an Internet requirement. This problem has been going on for about 3 months now. I am almost thinking about removing this app from my iPad! But then I will lose my points. Very frustrating!!
Bejeweled not good after update
by Social one on 2015/04/22 12:08
Keep loosing coins after update and plays games without requesting. Can't save coins to buy gems. Not able to build points because points are taken away for no reason. Friends no longer compete
Bug fix needed
by Sunnycapecod on 2015/04/22 10:26
The Daily Spin desperately needs a bug fix. The last 15 or so that I have done have been the very same spin every time. Boring!!

What's with the Ads!!!!!!!!
by dancer5230 on 2015/04/21 23:37
I bought this app quite some time ago when you used to charge for access. I have had it ever since and have played this game for years. And now I have to deal with the constant pop up ads?? This is totally unacceptabe. It's another case of trying to monetize the game and turning off your customers with overreach.

M
by M-1969 on 2015/04/21 17:17
When they added the daily challenge, I was hooked on the game again. I had grown bored with the repetition. With the newest update they made the game less appealing by requiring you to be on Facebook in order to collect any prizes from the Daily Challenge. No thanks!
Taking my coins
by Creshon on 2015/04/21 04:05
Give them all back I earned them. The game is resetting me to 0 coins!!! 😡😡
Fun Game
by ImChooch on 2015/04/21 03:53
I would give it 5 stars if not for the ongoing problem of synching mobile to desktop. Read the forums and tech support solutions. However, still have same problem. It doesn't work!
Please fix
by i8thedaisy on 2015/04/21 03:11
I love this game, but the latest upgrade is faulty. I have gotten the same score on the daily spin for the last two weeks. In addition, the daily challenge doesn't let me use the gem right away or at all. I'm not sure what happened, but it would be great if it were fixed.
Awesome
by Nellie1955 on 2015/04/21 01:25
Have so much fun playing
Horrible ads!
by Banester on 2015/04/21 01:22
Game is good, but the constant pop ads and videos make it horrible! Also no point chart so you have no idea how to get more points.

Big Fan
by RDS7340 on 2015/04/21 00:45
Love this game, I have it on all my computers and Ipads. I have a First generation IPad and blitz is still on it. The problem I have now Is that a box popped up and ask if I wanted to upgrade to a newer version. I upgraded and the game hasn't been right since. It Won't open so I can play it. It keeps asking me to upgrade. I do It again and still not working. It says you can upgrade to the last available version for my Ipad. Don't be fooled, the upgrade does NOT work. if I can submit this review, it keeps saying nickname taken.
PODCAST LISTENERS BEWARE!!
by montauk6 on 2015/04/20 18:04
Interesting features, however, the audio from other apps now get shutdown when you start BJB. Hopefully enough squeaky wheels will alert the software team to resolve this issue.
Boring and repetitive!

My favorite
by Haylissa on 2015/04/20 10:53
This IS my favorite game, BUT since the update I've noticed that it's got some annoying glitches. Sometimes my spin won't work and when I try again a couple hours later it is gone. Also, when I play the challenges I do not win the prize that is owed to me. This problem used to be intermittent but now has happened five days running! Very frustrating! Otherwise, love this game!
Boring
by Jgor24 on 2015/04/20 10:12
Getting same spin every time. Is your site not working? Thinking of deleting completely.
Love it!!
by Canadian,eh? on 2015/04/20 03:36
Good time killer but needs to have the party blitz on the app as well.
Not rated 5 stars anymore
by Torcdiva on 2015/04/20 02:55

This game awesome, once you play it you get addicted. I've been playing for a very long time, some of the jewels you get are ok but the one that was the best was flo on the rainbow unicorn that one was awesome bring that one back
Just Okay
by meormond on 2015/04/19 12:49
The game is okay, to score competitively you have to use power ups. The "slot" machine game pays only small amounts unless you purchase extra spins. So, to play ad score high really ends up costing you.
Great game!
by Franknannie on 2015/04/19 02:14
I love this game!
Horrible glitches.
by Kimberly9210 on 2015/04/18 23:35
First off, if I write a review, there has got to be. Problem. Every single time I pull the slow handle, I get the same exact thing. And I've been playing this game for 3 months daily. Secondly, every time I play the daily game, it never gives me my rewards? I'll win $5,000-$15,000 and it never goes into my coins? Plus, when I win power ups, I don't ever get to use them?? They just disappear. It's a prize I can't use. And it's dumb. Fix it.

Stops my music?!?!
by SSGDan527 on 2015/04/18 13:18
I love this game and the app used to be great, but the latest version stops any music I have playing. I used to kill hours on a tour bus playing and listening to my music or internet radio but now I can't listen while I play. Stupid design flaw, please fix this.
Competitor's Stats
by Kaiyle on 2015/04/18 08:34
Every since the most recent update, you can no longer see the other competitor's stats. This is one of the main things that keeps the attention of this game because the drive is there to reach and exceed your competitor's rank. Please restore our viewing of each other's ranks. Thank you.

Daily Spin frustration
by Granhart on 2015/04/18 03:18
I've experienced increasing split icons which usually means low coins (1000). Purchasing free spins not always good. Last 3 upgrades have been useless. Don't plan to continue if they can't fix if this is a glitch--unless this is greed. I don't plan to throw $ away. I play to have fun-- and lately it's not! Ditto; not fun any more!
Addictive
by Necipal on 2015/04/18 02:48
Great game with lots of challenges!!! This is one I love to play and I don't usually do games:-)
Bejeweled blitz is fun!
by Bejeweled Leslie on 2014/06/20 05:05
This first paragraph is my most recent review...I changed the rating from a 4 to a 3 because of all the trouble with daily spins. Not only is it always such a low amount, sometimes it doesn't even work! This prevents you from gaining more coins for spinning up to 7 days in a row. Also I find it ironic that when the coins are 50% off on Fridays, I can't even buy them because I get this asinine message that says"loading the store. please stand by while we stock our shelves" LOL!! Then after 11pm when the coins are back to full price, I can magically access the store to buy coins!! But guess what?!?! I'm not going to buy them anymore. This game bores me with all the bugs. Please fix it. I love that you can get the streaks on rare gems and that you can see your stats too ( just like on a PC). However you can't connect to Facebook and play on an iPad (you have to use the app). Therefore, if you want to buy coins you have to get them through the iTunes store, you can't share spin winnings or check your messages like you can on Facebook. The graphics and loading speed are great, but the technical difficulties I'm having with making an in-app purchase is really annoying me right now. I would like to see the Bejeweled app be able to do all of the things that playing the game on Facebook does.
Great Pick-up 'n' Play Puzzle Gameplay
by DTx21 on 2015/01/03 05:17
A lot of Puzzle games like this require the player to rely heavily upon being incredibly pensive and reflecting deeply upon his or her move options and thinking ahead and strategizing, and only moving quickly once those conditions have been met. Not so with this game! It still requires the player to be observant and to think 2 or 3 seconds ahead, but mostly it demands him/her to have quick reflexes and resolute persistence. It's all about jumping in, making as many great matches as you can in a minute, and hoping you got a great score in the process. (Or at least that's how I play.) You don't need to worry about digging yourself into deep pit or painting yourself into a corner—the game will always drop the right colored gems to enable you to make at least one new move, so keep making those matches without fear for running out of moves. It has enough bells and whistles to enhance the longevity of the replay value. I totally recommend this game for Puzzle gamers who desire for a change of pace something faster and more simplistic yet still appropriately challenging in its own ways. My Rating: 9/10
READ THIS
by Remi The Master on 2012/05/22 07:12
Ok so I love this game and I wanted to start a new round really fast so I just double tap but then instead of the play button popping up, the rare gem pops up:( I bought it on accident with the free 50,000 coins for signing up.I backed out then turned off my iPod and turned it back on hoping it wouldn't save me buying it but then when I go back to the app, my coins are gone but the rare gem isn't their anymore. You guys should put the rare gems in the shop because when we want to buy it, we will buy it and when we don't want to buy it, we don't buy it. Popcap I bet that you guys won't read this message because it's just one person but if you wont put my money back, can you at least give me what I bought on accident. Oh and an idea to make people want to but the rare gems is to make them permanent in a casual mode that stops when their are no more moves. I would actually buy those gems if you guys made them permanent. So to sum it up, fix my problem, make a casual game mode, and make rare gems permanent. You guys should make more rare gems and make them cheaper of they are going to be a one time use. I hope you guys listen to me!
Pros & cons
by jaw443 on 2012/03/11 06:31
Addicting fun app, well done, but for a long time, there is a glitch where scores over 500 don't count toward a gold medal, it's stuck on 8/10. So I find myself trying to slow down to avoid going over 500 because I'm working on 350, 400 & 450. There's no reward for higher scores. When I updated this app back in September or October, pop cap gave me free rare gems, lots of them, lasting a long time, making higher scores more frequent. When they ran out, if I want to keep using them, I had to pay--a lot, on an ongoing basis. Very clever of them, they must make a ton of money doing this. But there is something sleazy about exploiting people who are prone to addiction. It's getting to the point where I'm going to have to give it up because they started giving out rare gems almost every game & I just bought $20 worth a few hours ago, and it's charging me again. I'm sure I haven't played any more than usual so I think this is just more manipulation of addiction. Those who can afford to pay more than once a day will continue to be a gold mine for them. I need to leave it alone at this point. Great game, diabolical company. :-)
Addictive and annoying

I have been playing Bejeweled since my very first iPhone. Yes I love it! I now play bejeweled blitz almost every night! What I like is the faster pace if this version, most if the time I like the time limit of one minute. But what I hate about the game is you need to collect coins to get super powers. If you cannot win them you can always buy them (that is BS). Ok so you have enough coins, you spend the coins on a superpower (now scoring against the competition is skewed in you favor) you win at the top of the chart and then 2 days later the scores are reset! Basically if you bought the coins for the superpower and won, you just threw your money away! Like I said I play almost everyday. I just got over 200,000 without spending one coin. I've made it my goal to see how many coins I can earn. I will say that it is also annoying that the buttons to buy the superpowers are in the exact same place as the play button. I have accidentally spent a lot if coinage by pressing those stupid buttons, and once you press it, there is no way that I know of to cancel the superpower. You are stuck playing it.
Game is fun, update is glitchy
by Boothacus on 2015/03/31 10:15
The game is really good and you can get addicted but the most recent update is very buggy. Coin/gem wins in daily challenge doesn't seem to apply even if you've won your score doesn't apply to your general high score. I used to be able to play iTunes in the background but now it cuts out and I've had to restart my phone a few times to when the whole game seems to get wonky with sound. There is also a delay after you finish a game that keeps you stuck before it lets you play again. I am assuming that it's so you can see all the great play combs/possibilities that just showed up on the board now that the game is over but since I'm trying to play again anyway no need to entice me and delays my actual playing again. Very annoying. The rare gems can be really pricy but all of these criticisms aside, it's a very addictive game. And I play it all the time. The 'add coin' by watching short ads is a great feature since they get to give you the game for free and sell advertising and you get to get coins without having ads pop up distracting you while you're trying to play.
Still a favorite!

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!
Awesome
by Mumof2gals on 2012/04/27 09:28
Such a time waster!! Bad bad bad thing to have on the iPad! I might need to go to Bejeweled anonymous!! This game is quick and fun and a great way to make time go by while waiting for something or another. It is addicting though and before you know it, one minute becomes 60! Edit April 27'12: the game is still fun and a few times I won a 25k, 50k and 100k jewel spin, whoohoo :) I play it everyday when I need to make time go by faster. Now and then the game can't log in, usually after an update, to FB. While I am ok with the occasional down time, it shouldn't happen each time an upgrade happens. It just doesn't look good on the developer part. So, while I am ok on/offline, I am removing one star for lack of checking or what not before releasing an update. I do have one request, can you make the abandon button not so close to the rare gem harvesting button? I realise that you want people to use the rare gem and make money from extra spins but it's a bit too easy to accidentally push - and there's no confirm button to use the rare gems, it just goes.
MOVE the BUTTON already
by Vivalasvegas2000 on 2012/12/08 00:46
UPDATE: Do not buy coins!! The special gem green button placement is a scam to burn your coins to get you to buy more. I have been playing this game for almost a year and there is a glitch where the game will pause or revert back to the old screen so you push the "buy a rare gem" green button rather than the "play" button. I think this is a purposeful scam because I have never "accidentally" purchased a cheaper gem. It only happens on the 75,000 coin gem. I do not think it is an accident! I have never bothered complaining on a review, but I think this is truly a scam and it aggravates me every time I feel ripped off. ORIGINAL POST: I love this game but refuse to give it more than one star until they MOVE the rare gem BUTTON. It takes too many games to earn coins just to have the game force you to use them because of their ridiculous placement of the button. I can't even let my kids play because they will always hit the big, green button and use my coins. And I refuse to pay for more coins since I feel swindled out of them every time I accidentally hit that button. Why cause such angst in your players who otherwise would be enjoying your game?? PLEASE fix this immediately!
Dumped it after 12 yrs of loyalty
by MonkeyBlue69 on 2014/06/27 15:11
I have played this game for over 12yrs. I have pd. for the app on several phones, have it on three pc's and now on my iPad. After this last update of blitz they are drowning my game with full page ads. I looked up the opt out and even if you DO choose that all it means is they will now send ads that do not pertain to your interests, but will drowned u with all kinds of ads so there is no way to stop it. I was in first place and had a lot of special gems saved not to mention all the time I spend playing this because it helps keep your mind quick also. I have removed the game for good after all these yrs. the last straw was this mornings pop ups started freezing my iPad and had to shut down and restart every time, enough is enough. Typical of big business, u have a good thing going and u throw everyone who made u right out the window. Good going Google. I bet people who spend a lot of money playing the game are not suffering with these pop ups. Just another way for them to weed out people who like the game for competition, meeting people and just fun. I am so done with on line live gaming. Leaves me more time on my other activities, good riddance.
Bejeweled Blitz for iPad.
by Hadrian's Wall on 2015/02/17 01:39
Needs fixing!! If you accidentally hit the icon,you can not go to a spot to back out of it, and it eats up from 50,000 to 100,000 coins!!! I don't like to bet coins. I only like to play an accumulate them. You should not be forced to play that way if you don't have to. The one on my iPhone lets you change it. Make a change your mind spot please!!! Now it turning to a black screen and it comes back you are short 70-80k coins! What is the matter with this game???????????? Ok. This is the third time I have tried to let you people know that your site is messed up. Instead of adding to your earned coins you are taking them away. Is there something wrong on your site? Apparently you do not publish the reviews is problems or complaints. So in that case is will just post your problems on FaceBook and spread the word about your errors by mouth. Might take a while but I'll feel better. Why try gaining anything if your counter is going to deduct instead of adding!!!!
My addiction has been cured by all the bad updates
by AnnB11261 on 2012/12/31 21:55
I've been addicted to this game for 2+ years. However, in trying to make the game "better", the last several updates have just made it so I don't even want to log in anymore. Starting from the top: 1) The game is taking longer and longer to load 2) It doesn't always recognize me/my friends, so I'm playing against a bunch of made up character names 3) When I've already taken my spin for the day I still have to go past this screen on subsequent plays of the day 4) If I'm lucky enough to finish a game without it crashing, the game crashes right at the end of the game and kicks me out. 5) I don't even bother purchasing any of the boosts, because when the game kicks me out, it doesn't remember that I have two more games left to play with those boosts. I'm spending less and less time with this game, and subsequently less an less likely to talk my Facebook friends into playing it, too. I did not upgrade to the new OS system because of all the bad news about it, but this shouldn't be the reason a perfectly good game has gone down the tubes.
Getting tired of little reward
by Luvinmayberry on 2014/12/31 22:08
I have been a long time player, way before fb began. Now with having to purchase everything instead of earning it by accomplishment I've become aggravated. I REFUSE to spend money on a game, I may as well flush money down the toilet. Plus playing the game burns up my battery on my phone fast! It's very buggy and has gotten so bad that when Apple did diagnostics on my phone they found this app was the issue at amassing great amounts of bugs on my phone to the point I had to replace my phone. Ready to delete. I'm fast losing interest when the money earned comes way slower then anything you can spend it on for a gem. I don't believe that buying my way to getting top score is even in my top 10,000 things to do. Don't waste your money, it's all a money ploy to the creators. Find a better game that won't try to rip you off, occasionally steals 10s of 1000s of coins at a time, and after watching these stupid ads for free coins I've been stuck in an unending loop of commercials only to find out it banked the coins then took every last one back! Waste of time!!
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
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.
Unhappy camper
by Mamawpkd on 2014/02/03 18:23
Not happy with update. When I hit login it only shows me. Then when I go out and come back in it shows the other players and their scores I played offline and it was ok. Don't understand why you messed with it I love the game just not this update. Rate is for update. Since the update I very seldom break 100,000. I have to use coins for the 75,000 to get a descent score and then it goes away every week. I use to score 200,000+ a lot now hardly ever. Like and will keep it but don't play like I use to. Getting to where I hate this game. Use to love it. I can never get more than 25,000 points unless I use coins to buy the things. Before upgrade I could get 200,000 May delete. Use to place it constantly now hardly ever. Need memory for other things. PLEASE FIX. Back again I know I'm getting old and I play this to help with memory but still discouraged. Same gripes!!!!!! Update Now when I logout and spin it will not add coins to my total. Then when I log back in I actually loose coins. Ugh
Frustrating but addicting
by Mod011000 on 2013/03/21 02:39
Great game and wonderfully addicting! However, there two things that frustrates me to the point I'm going to delete the app and find something else to fulfill my boredom. The first thing is the Daily Spin has become less than amusing. I'm not winning anything over than 10k and that us not very often. Before I would earn more allowing to purchase different jewels. Now I have to play longer just to earn enough coins. The last and most frustrating of all is the placement of the offer to purchase the jewels. After my game is complete I have the option to play again or purchase a special jewel that will help me gain more coins. Well on at least 4 occasions when I've try to bypass the purchasing of the jewel and just play the next game, I end up purchasing the jewel which deducts coins from my earnings. Therefore I can't save enough coins to get the big jewel to purchase. Any suggestions for a nothing addicting game, but this time without the headaches...
Additictive, Fun, but Occasionally Annoying
by Wyatt the Odd on 2014/03/06 01:28
This is not the app to use if you expect gemstones to shoot out of your iPhone. That doesn't happen here. Ever. For that, you'll need to download Magic Genie Lamp and rub vigorously. Please note that you must have also installed "Living in Fantasyland" into your wetware. Given that, who is this game for? Why, anyone who wants to kill a few minutes without the risk of "just one more level" during an executive meeting. Also, it's ideal for anyone with failed lapidary dreams. Why? Because, as the name says, you're blowing up precious gems. And, you've only got a minute before your horde is replaced by the top score screen. This is a game that seems to genuinely want you to rack up a massive score even if you don't use real money to buy the in-game coins. Each night, they give you a pull at the slot machine. And, the game will show you possible moves if you're stuck - it just won't show you the best move. The latest update seems to have geeked a couple of things. It keeps trying to open my phone's Game Center despite me disabling it. Also, after the trying the slot machine, you have to wait for the game to decide that you've read the message about when your next pull is available before it'll let you out. I've accidentally bought more "rare" gems because of this glitch than those I've bought on purpose.
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!
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.
Please let older iPads play the previous version!

I have been addicted to this game for years and built my coins up to nearly 10,000,000. Last week I was forced to try to upgrade to the newer version of Blitz. I didn't think my old iPad could support it, but figured if it couldn't I would still be able to play the older version that I came to love. When I tried to click on Blitz again I was given the option of " do not upgrade now". It just ejected me from the game. I tried several times with no satisfaction. I really would appreciate a fix that would let me click on the "not now" option and reload my old version and keep the coin bank. I don't need brighter gems I just need the old version since I'm not buying a new iPad just to play this game.
Awesome idea!!!!
by Candas Fields on 2012/03/07 22:06
Love this game!!! Dont enjoy the fact that sometimes when I get 50k I get 500 coins or sometimes get 200k and still get 500 coins......I know you can buy coins but not everyone wants to buy them all the time. And you should get more coins for getting 200k. So I think if you get 50k, you get 500 coins, 100k a 1000, 200k 2000 coins and so on. Even if you got a million, you would only get 10,000 points. Just get rid of the coins on the jewels, keep the "2X, 3X, etc" for additional points, that way we don't get bored playing all the time just to get to the "Phoenix prism". That's my favorite part of the game, is when I get that and add three more things in my boxes!!! Its rock and roll time when that happens!!! Please please please consider this!!! Oh and to confirm some stuff already mentioned......my Facebook check in is fine, and yes, the 500k medal doesnt get added...... Thanks
Not an improvement over previous version
by Sun Quest on 2013/02/22 05:37
Won't save settings when I turn off music volume and disable auto-renewal of boosts. If I completely exit out of bejeweled blitz so it is not running in the background, then the settings revert back to defaults. I uninstalled and reinstalled this version and that did not help. I don't like auto-renewal always defaulting to on. Please fix as this is annoying. Update: After playing new version since installing it yesterday I can honestly say I see it as being less favorable than I previously thought. It is SLOW! Very very slow. It went from the gems falling fast to me being able to say "click click click" as they drop. This is on my iPhone4. I was getting around 800k, and now the best I can get is around 500k. I will not be using any more coins or buying any spins to get coins until it is fixed. I am downgrading the rating to 1 star. Wish I could give it zero instead as this game is no longer fun to play due to the jerky dropping of the gems. I really wish I hadn't upgraded.
Bejeweled Blitz
by GameDweeber on 2013/06/09 01:19
I love this game so much, but I'm kind if tired o the constant bugs that it has. One, for example, is not opening right away. Also, it hasn't been saying my high score for the week. And I'm kind of ticked that, for whatever reason, I has 50,000 coins total after one round and then the next, I have about 13,000. I mean, what happened to all my coins? I didn't use them on anything. They just disappeared. Not looking at the bugs and my complains, I think that the game is overall pretty good. It keeps me entertained for hours in the car for long car trips, or just entertained around the house when I have nothing to do. It's a lot of fun to play with my friends as well. Like at a party, my friends and I can pass my iPod around, playing this, seeing who can get the highest score. All in all, it's a great game. But please, fix the bugs.
Facebook login Difficulties
by STC's Eagle Scout on 2014/08/20 00:14
For over 4 months and 2 updates I have Currently been unable to play Bejeweled through Facebook on the app. Bejeweled will not recognize my Facebook account to play the online version after 3 updates. It doesn't even load to able to type my password. Each time it will say searching & reach the point to say sorry can not load Facebook your account at the moment please try again latter. Well I thought it was just a one or two time issue but unfortunately it has been doing this for an estimated over 4 months I have tried to long in every other day to play but would not allow me in. I was not sure if a new update would be made soon so I have been just waiting till the latest update was available to download. I like this game a lot and play it almost every day. I have had no troubles playing the offline version of Bejeweled.
STINGIEST GAME EVER - but can be the best
by Jmar7817 on 2012/06/20 05:48
I've been playing bejeweled blitz for nbover two years now and it is by far my favorite game I've ever played on any platform. However, the game is designed by money hungry thugs who make you pay absurd prices to unlock the games most fun features which make the game unique, and of course higher scores. THE PRICES OF THE COINS AND OUTCOME OF THE SPINS ARE OUTRAGEOUS relative to the prices of the boosts let alone rare gems, let alone using both at once. no one should even have to buy coins but for whatever reason the max coins you can get in a game is 1400. a single game can cost up to 80,000. that is robbery. the BEST deal you can get without promotions is just over a million coins for $10. you could use a million in 13 games aka 15 minutes! Not trying to get into the spins and the consistent low winnings whether you buy them or not, but at the current costs of the boss and gems, which should be free anyways and probably should each have their own high score leaderboard because the game becomes completely different with them, the spin jackpot should be 10 million minimum with 25,000 the lowest possible winnig amount. anything less doesn't even buy you three minutes worth of playing the game it should be offered in the first place. talk about not caring about your customers. Here the game is free but if you wanna play it without any restrictions it's gonna be $40 an hour. THIEVES!!
Addicting, fun but frustrating!
by G-Goil on 2012/07/24 05:19
This game is fun to kill time with. Very addicting. Very challenging always trying to beat my own score. But frustrating as all get up! I used to waste coins on gems and boosts.....until I found out that I spent more in coins and never really boosted my score at all. I get more coins/points by playing without 'em! Also, I noticed what seemed like every other day, my score would go down and I'd have to keep playing to get back to the high scores I had left off with. What's up with that?! Just now I got to spin for coins and after doing so, it said I had 15 more hours until the next spin. I accidently shut off my iPad and when I turned it back on to play the same game, it let me spin again in less than 10 minutes!! Only this time it went back to my old coinage amount and gave me a lower one then the first! Whatever! Has bugs...but it's still fun.
No more score building "Last Hurrays"
by Shaazie on 2013/03/14 19:34
Has this happened to anyone else: I acquired one million plus coins only by the free daily spins and earning coins and not buying the special gems or using game boosts. Since achieving the million plus coins, the "Last Hurrah" no longer happens... No more falling gems matching up and increasing the score, etc when un exploded gems are detonated after time is up, during the supposed last hurrah. I know the game has changed because I've played it long enough to know what the game did before the one million coins and now. The difference is readily noticeable. Also, I keep I unchecking the box to send anonymous game stats, and I play a game, go back into Help, and the box is checked again, to allow stats to be sent. I used to like this game, but not now. Is this how PopCap forces people to spend coins, to get high scores I can no longer achieve before earning one million coins? Before this, I actually had a score of 204,000 without using any helps, and now I'm lucky if I can get 50,000.
A step forward and 3 steps backward!
by Monket on 2011/12/11 09:48
This game was a 5 star before, now it's down to 3. On the Plus side. We got better graphics that look great with the Retina Display, we got also the Daily Spin (FINALLY!) but sometimes doesn't give you all the coins for all your friends that have the app on FB, just for the ones that have played that week. Bad! On the bad side... Mmhh... Where can I start? Ok, pretty much everyone else has said about the game being slower and therefore scores have decreased. About the scores, well, it takes time to get used to, but if you play it well enough your scores will improve back to your old average. I have scored a few 150k's without buying power-ups, but yes, I think the game would be better if it had the old speed. Gone is the explosion at the end of the game. Without it, feels like something is missing, that you need... Closure? Like the game ends all of a sudden. It feels incomplete. Most important thing missing is the levels!!!! WHERE ARE THEY? That's one of the better parts of playing it on FB. Please BRING THAT BACK! I have the feeling that they rush the game out the door. Why? We were happy before and didn't expected (nor wanted) an update. One last thing, I tried to play the old one from either the Bejeweled 2 App or from Facebook and it's gone! It brings back this unfinished piece of software!
Darn good
by ChristopherDrum on 2011/12/23 15:28
But jewel movement feels sluggish (iOS 5 on iPhone 4; very few open apps), and touch events seem to get misinterpreted frequently. I drag a jewel left, only to have it swap in a different direction. So attempts to strategically make a power gem can be foiled. I appreciate that the retina graphics are used on the iPad version now as their "native" interface, but it is still just a scaled up iPhone app. Can't rotate devices to play in landscape. And overall it just seems telling that I've never broken 350,000 on iOS devices, but quickly broke 500,000 on my desktop system. If this is an artifact of touch input vs mouse superiority or an artifact of how Bejeweled is implemented on iOS, I really can't say. Glad it is free, but was bummed that my previously purchased game has been killed and replaced with another pay-for app. Not really sure what the tactic there is.
I love this game!
by Flaqui12 on 2015/01/28 04:35
I have been playing this game for years! It is very addictive and it is fun. The game has improved in many ways, however, when you want to use your coins, the purchases are quite expensive and you end up loosing your valuable coins too fast. I presently have over 14 million points accumulated and now the game tries to force me to upgrade to a new version. I do not want any upgrade for this game. I enjoy the old version which I have been playing for years. Beside I do not want to lose all my points! What is the issue here? Why do I have to go to another version that is not supported by my iPod? I am extremely happy with my old version!!! Please fix this problem. This is unfair to us who have enjoyed this game for years. I also find that it is very unfair that we can't not longer play with our Facebook friends, whom we have play with for so many years. Please fix this problem! You are making us very unhappy forcing us out of a game that we have enjoyed for so long. I spent a lot of money buying the coins to play and now you want to take them away? This is very but very unfair and inhuman! This is not right! Hoping you respond to our request... Flaqui
Bejeweled is now a real blitz!
by )-C-( on 2014/01/23 07:03
I started playing bejeweled years ago on the PC. I loved the game. Graphics and sounds were just wonderful. Then I got an iPad. Bejeweled blitz is fun for when you're in a hurry. But the sounds are unpleasant. I do not like to listen to it artillery sounds, and I do not care for the music. I play games to relax. Blitz is designed to produce stress. The in game purchase buttons are designed to make one give up tokens. One almost always gives up more tokens than one "wins." I refuse to participate in Facebook and dislike the incentives designed to encourage signing up. I get enough stress at work. Please offer a relaxing one minute game. The latest update is very pretty: The graphics are stunning; however, the game freezes, and things don't work the way they're supposed to. Frankly, I have lost the desire andto play it as often as I have in the past.
Fun, fast-paced, and overly luck-driven
by Tivor on 2012/01/10 11:41
Fun, fast-paced, and bite-sized, this is one of those perfect "play while waiting in line" game. My only gripe is that getting a high score is really a matter of luck than any skill on the player's part. Bejeweled gameplay was always heavily dependent on luck, but it's much more so this time around, since you're playing within a strict time limit. For me, this takes away from the fun of going for a high score. There is no sense of "hey, I'm getting good at this" with this game. It's like playing slots at a casino; you're just hoping to get lucky. (the game even features its own slots mini-game too, after all!) But when you take this game as a simple (and free!) diversion while, say, waiting in line, then my gripe quickly loses its meaning. Just enjoy the light show, and hope the luck strikes your way.
Daily Fail Facebook Only
by Morp60 on 2015/03/16 01:01
I love blitz and enjoy playing, but this latest update which sounded great really wasn't. The daily challenge prizes can't be claimed without a Facebook account, not even the coins. Why can't I get the coins I earn? That should be easy since I can spend coins on second tries and the lack of those coins goes through but the coins I earn never show up. I don't agree with but understand not redesigning the game so Facebook free players can't claim the rare gems we earn but not giving us our coins AND not making that clear so we don't waste the coins we have on second tries to earn more is quite simply a dick move and you should be ashamed of yourselves. My decision to not join Facebook can exclude me from bonuses but I shouldn't be penalized for it. No matter how you deny it that is what you are doing. To all players without Facebook play the daily challenge for free but don't waste your coins to win prizes you can't claim, not even the coins.
Bejeweled Blitz
by Tomgun1130 on 2012/07/24 03:28
I had a total knee replacement in January. My son let me use his IPOD to at least get online while strapped to my knee motion machine for two hours 4 times a day. My son also found the Blitz game for me for free and put it on the iPod. I had seen it on FB, tried it and liked it. I play it offline which is my favorite way. My other son came over and saw that I constantly had his brothers iPod and offered me his since he only used it for his music and he has another type of iPod. Well, it is now late July and I still have my son's iPod to play bejeweled blitz alot! I still prefer to play offline and I love getting the free spins! This is the ONLY game I play! Thanks for such a fun game! I would really love to be able to receive more free spins :)
Addicting!
by I'MGONNAWRECKIT!! on 2012/09/19 00:33
I love a good timed puzzle game, and this definitely fits the bill. Can be a little aggravating at times, but overall I really have enjoyed Blitz. I do have a few complaints, though (and all of them deal with coins): - Coin pack cost a pretty penny, which is why I refuse to pay for them! - Maybe it's my imagination, but the daily spin prizes have gone waaaay down in value. Bummer! - For how long it takes to build up coins the free way, those rare gems sure do cost a lot for just one round! Even if you did buy coins, they go quickly with the current game setup. I almost never use rare gems or the boosters due to sheer coin drain, and it really does take a long time to build up the coin bank for just one or two rounds of boosted-up fun. I know it's a common business model to build revenue for app-games (especially free ones), but seriously, I'd rather pay for the app up front! These business models makes me not want to contribute real money at all. It's ludicrous to shell out a fair amount of cash for something as arbitrary as one round of boosts in a silly game. Rant aside, though, this game is pretty fun. Although I hate having sound on for Blitz, the voice is a bit creepy and the music is stressful! Haha.
Level ranking
by Zeroskater61 on 2012/07/09 22:07
I recently updated and now doing the whole coin thing and it's seems cool and it seems to be working fine for me just one thing bugs me though and that's the score ranking medals/emblems why does it only give you one ranking when you reach a high score? Say if you pass 25k you get 1.. 25k ranking but if you past that and get a 50k score you only get the 50k ranking should'nt I also be getting the 25k ranking as well since I've passed that one up and now moved on to the next ranking level? My all time high score is 365,550 now you would assume I would get the 25k,50k,75k,100k,125k,150k,175k (and so on) ranking since I've passed all these but I don't it only gives you one every time and that to me seems quite dumb actually since every time I play am always around 125k and am only getting the 125k each time but not the others ones below it..

I used to be able to listen to Pandora or my music, but now it closes any music playing in the background. I won't be playing this game anymore.
Please fix the game.
by Dfucella on 2015/04/27 01:54
I have been a loyal player for about a year until about a month ago when the game stopped opening after the last update. I just tried updating again but it still will not open. I play on an iPod touch 4th gen. It does, however, open fine while offline, just not online.

Annoying bug
by Vampyrvet on 2015/04/26 14:11
I like to mute the game sounds and listen to music or audiobooks while playing. Since the last couple of updates, this is no longer possible. As soon as I launch the game it stops playback of my music and there is no way to start it again without quitting the game first. Very annoying
No more outside music?
by TravelinGypsy_ on 2015/04/26 12:37
I love this game, but somewhere after the last upgrade, I can no longer play my own music/podcasts. This has greatly reduced my playing time.
Gave me 100,000 coins for logging in to Facebook and Took them away!!!
by Dcduck on 2015/04/26 09:23
Keeps telling me I have no internet connection when I do! How do I fix this?!? It also gave me 100,000 coins for logging in with Facrbook but now tells me I have NO internet connection, whether at home on WI-FI OR OUT USING CELLULAR DATA, makes no difference, and I can't spin the wheel or get any other gems! HELP!!! Was better before I updated it ! I had 186,000 last time I checked, then Danville got flooded and some internet connections stopped working! I don't know if em

by Deenatchr on 2015/04/25 09:29
It's a great game because it can be played online and offline when you don't have Internet or Wi-Fi. I like playing it when I'm flying on a plane.

Disappointed
by Mdlp!!! on 2015/04/24 22:14
I love the game but I am disappointed how many times I purchase coins or spends 1 million coins. I should be rewarded for spending money on the game.
Spin
by jeramerica on 2015/04/24 20:28
Keep getting the same result from the spin???? Whats the problem
Great
by Hoe numba three on 2015/04/24 19:56
One of my favorite games. Good for eye hand coordination. If you want to spend a little money now and then, it scores better but is still fun and interesting even for free.

by Memememememems on 2015/04/22 19:26
Not only is this game boring because they haven't updated anything but the daily spin is a joke. 9 out of 10 times when I spin I get blue, blue, red. Now what are the odds of that?
Are you ever going to fix....?

I used to love this game, but since the last update every daily spin I get exactly the same thing. 2 blues and the 3rd slot stops between the red and white. And I don't understand why you don't get the coins or where they go when you win the daily challenge.
Bejeweled Blitz problems
by Happyhykr on 2015/04/22 12:10
I used to love playing you game but it seems every time I go to this app it tells me I have an internet problems. That a connection was lost. I cannot get my free spins or play the game because of it. It is not my internet it is the app. Everything else on my iPad works that has an Internet requirement. This problem has been going on for about 3 months now. I am almost thinking about removing this app from my iPad! But then I will lose my points. Very frustrating!!
Bejeweled not good after update
by Social one on 2015/04/22 12:08
Keep loosing coins after update and plays games without requesting. Can't save coins to buy gems. Not able to build points because points are taken away for no reason. Friends no longer compete
Bug fix needed
by Sunnycapecod on 2015/04/22 10:26

What's with the Ads!!!!!!!!
by dancer5230 on 2015/04/21 23:37
I bought this app quite some time ago when you used to charge for access. I have had it ever since and have played this game for years. And now I have to deal with the constant pop up ads?? This is totally unacceptabe. It's another case of trying to monetize the game and turning off your customers with overreach.

by M-1969 on 2015/04/21 17:17
When they added the daily challenge, I was hooked on the game again. I had grown bored with the repetition. With the newest update they made the game less appealing by requiring you to be on Facebook in order to collect any prizes from the Daily Challenge. No thanks!

I would give it 5 stars if not for the ongoing problem of synching mobile to desktop. Read the forums and tech support solutions. However, still have same problem. It doesn't work!
Please fix
by i8thedaisy on 2015/04/21 03:11
I love this game, but the latest upgrade is faulty. I have gotten the same score on the daily spin for the last two weeks. In addition, the daily challenge doesn't let me use the gem right away or at all. I'm not sure what happened, but it would be great if it were fixed.
Awesome

Horrible ads!

by RDS7340 on 2015/04/21 00:45
Love this game, I have it on all my computers and Ipads. I have a First generation IPad and blitz is still on it. The problem I have now Is that a box popped up and ask if I wanted to upgrade to a newer version. I upgraded and the game hasn't been right since. It Won't open so I can play it. It keeps asking me to upgrade. I do It again and still not working. It says you can upgrade to the last available version for my Ipad. Don't be fooled, the upgrade does NOT work. if I can submit this review, it keeps saying nickname taken.
PODCAST LISTENERS BEWARE!!

My favorite
by Haylissa on 2015/04/20 10:53
This IS my favorite game, BUT since the update I've noticed that it's got some annoying glitches. Sometimes my spin won't work and when I try again a couple hours later it is gone. Also, when I play the challenges I do not win the prize that is owed to me. This problem used to be intermittent but now has happened five days running! Very frustrating! Otherwise, love this game!
Boring

Getting same spin every time. Is your site not working? Thinking of deleting completely.

Just Okay
by meormond on 2015/04/19 12:49
The game is okay, to score competitively you have to use power ups. The "slot" machine game pays only small amounts unless you purchase extra spins. So, to play ad score high really ends up costing you.
Great game!
by Franknannie on 2015/04/19 02:14

Horrible glitches.
by Kimberly9210 on 2015/04/18 23:35
First off, if I write a review, there has got to be. Problem. Every single time I pull the slow handle, I get the same exact thing. And I've been playing this game for 3 months daily. Secondly, every time I play the daily game, it never gives me my rewards? I'll win $5,000-$15,000 and it never goes into my coins? Plus, when I win power ups, I don't ever get to use them?? They just disappear. It's a prize I can't use. And it's dumb. Fix it.

I love this game and the app used to be great, but the latest version stops any music I have playing. I used to kill hours on a tour bus playing and listening to my music or internet radio but now I can't listen while I play. Stupid design flaw, please fix this.
Competitor's Stats
by Kaiyle on 2015/04/18 08:34
Every since the most recent update, you can no longer see the other competitor's stats. This is one of the main things that keeps the attention of this game because the drive is there to reach and exceed your competitor's rank. Please restore our viewing of each other's ranks. Thank you.

Daily Spin frustration
by Granhart on 2015/04/18 03:18
I've experienced increasing split icons which usually means low coins (1000). Purchasing free spins not always good. Last 3 upgrades have been useless. Don't plan to continue if they can't fix if this is a glitch--unless this is greed. I don't plan to throw $ away. I play to have fun-- and lately it's not! Ditto; not fun any more!
Addictive

Bejeweled blitz is fun!
by Bejeweled Leslie on 2014/06/20 05:05
This first paragraph is my most recent review...I changed the rating from a 4 to a 3 because of all the trouble with daily spins. Not only is it always such a low amount, sometimes it doesn't even work! This prevents you from gaining more coins for spinning up to 7 days in a row. Also I find it ironic that when the coins are 50% off on Fridays, I can't even buy them because I get this asinine message that says"loading the store. please stand by while we stock our shelves" LOL!! Then after 11pm when the coins are back to full price, I can magically access the store to buy coins!! But guess what?!?! I'm not going to buy them anymore. This game bores me with all the bugs. Please fix it. I love that you can get the streaks on rare gems and that you can see your stats too ( just like on a PC). However you can't connect to Facebook and play on an iPad (you have to use the app). Therefore, if you want to buy coins you have to get them through the iTunes store, you can't share spin winnings or check your messages like you can on Facebook. The graphics and loading speed are great, but the technical difficulties I'm having with making an in-app purchase is really annoying me right now. I would like to see the Bejeweled app be able to do all of the things that playing the game on Facebook does.
Great Pick-up 'n' Play Puzzle Gameplay
by DTx21 on 2015/01/03 05:17
A lot of Puzzle games like this require the player to rely heavily upon being incredibly pensive and reflecting deeply upon his or her move options and thinking ahead and strategizing, and only moving quickly once those conditions have been met. Not so with this game! It still requires the player to be observant and to think 2 or 3 seconds ahead, but mostly it demands him/her to have quick reflexes and resolute persistence. It's all about jumping in, making as many great matches as you can in a minute, and hoping you got a great score in the process. (Or at least that's how I play.) You don't need to worry about digging yourself into deep pit or painting yourself into a corner—the game will always drop the right colored gems to enable you to make at least one new move, so keep making those matches without fear for running out of moves. It has enough bells and whistles to enhance the longevity of the replay value. I totally recommend this game for Puzzle gamers who desire for a change of pace something faster and more simplistic yet still appropriately challenging in its own ways. My Rating: 9/10
READ THIS
by Remi The Master on 2012/05/22 07:12
Ok so I love this game and I wanted to start a new round really fast so I just double tap but then instead of the play button popping up, the rare gem pops up:( I bought it on accident with the free 50,000 coins for signing up.I backed out then turned off my iPod and turned it back on hoping it wouldn't save me buying it but then when I go back to the app, my coins are gone but the rare gem isn't their anymore. You guys should put the rare gems in the shop because when we want to buy it, we will buy it and when we don't want to buy it, we don't buy it. Popcap I bet that you guys won't read this message because it's just one person but if you wont put my money back, can you at least give me what I bought on accident. Oh and an idea to make people want to but the rare gems is to make them permanent in a casual mode that stops when their are no more moves. I would actually buy those gems if you guys made them permanent. So to sum it up, fix my problem, make a casual game mode, and make rare gems permanent. You guys should make more rare gems and make them cheaper of they are going to be a one time use. I hope you guys listen to me!
Pros & cons
by jaw443 on 2012/03/11 06:31
Addicting fun app, well done, but for a long time, there is a glitch where scores over 500 don't count toward a gold medal, it's stuck on 8/10. So I find myself trying to slow down to avoid going over 500 because I'm working on 350, 400 & 450. There's no reward for higher scores. When I updated this app back in September or October, pop cap gave me free rare gems, lots of them, lasting a long time, making higher scores more frequent. When they ran out, if I want to keep using them, I had to pay--a lot, on an ongoing basis. Very clever of them, they must make a ton of money doing this. But there is something sleazy about exploiting people who are prone to addiction. It's getting to the point where I'm going to have to give it up because they started giving out rare gems almost every game & I just bought $20 worth a few hours ago, and it's charging me again. I'm sure I haven't played any more than usual so I think this is just more manipulation of addiction. Those who can afford to pay more than once a day will continue to be a gold mine for them. I need to leave it alone at this point. Great game, diabolical company. :-)
Addictive and annoying
by Tim Kloppenburg on 2013/04/14 19:01
I have been playing Bejeweled since my very first iPhone. Yes I love it! I now play bejeweled blitz almost every night! What I like is the faster pace if this version, most if the time I like the time limit of one minute. But what I hate about the game is you need to collect coins to get super powers. If you cannot win them you can always buy them (that is BS). Ok so you have enough coins, you spend the coins on a superpower (now scoring against the competition is skewed in you favor) you win at the top of the chart and then 2 days later the scores are reset! Basically if you bought the coins for the superpower and won, you just threw your money away! Like I said I play almost everyday. I just got over 200,000 without spending one coin. I've made it my goal to see how many coins I can earn. I will say that it is also annoying that the buttons to buy the superpowers are in the exact same place as the play button. I have accidentally spent a lot if coinage by pressing those stupid buttons, and once you press it, there is no way that I know of to cancel the superpower. You are stuck playing it.
Game is fun, update is glitchy
by Boothacus on 2015/03/31 10:15
The game is really good and you can get addicted but the most recent update is very buggy. Coin/gem wins in daily challenge doesn't seem to apply even if you've won your score doesn't apply to your general high score. I used to be able to play iTunes in the background but now it cuts out and I've had to restart my phone a few times to when the whole game seems to get wonky with sound. There is also a delay after you finish a game that keeps you stuck before it lets you play again. I am assuming that it's so you can see all the great play combs/possibilities that just showed up on the board now that the game is over but since I'm trying to play again anyway no need to entice me and delays my actual playing again. Very annoying. The rare gems can be really pricy but all of these criticisms aside, it's a very addictive game. And I play it all the time. The 'add coin' by watching short ads is a great feature since they get to give you the game for free and sell advertising and you get to get coins without having ads pop up distracting you while you're trying to play.
Still a favorite!
by totalRAH on 2014/12/31 19:46
I've been playing this game for a couple of years now. I really like the Free Coins option where I can watch ads to get free coins, and I'm really enjoying the Daily Challenge for its coin awards and for the variations in game play. Unlike other reviewers, I've not experienced any glitches. Everything works fine for me. Like other reviewers, I think the coin rewards payouts for play are way too small in proportion to the cost of the special gems. I can win 1,000 coins, but most of the gems are 40,000 coins or more... 40 games just to earn enough to play 1 gem 1 time is frustrating when the gems make the play so much more fun. Now that I can earn gems and coins through Daily Challenge and ads, it's much better, but the Daily Spin seems to have been diminished.. I used to earn 50,000 about once a month, but have only hit it once in the past 6 months. I've never hit all emeralds or all rubies, and only once ever hit all sapphires, which was awesome. Aside from not being able to earn coins quickly enough to play often with the gems, I have no complaints.
Not crazy about it!
by See3PO on 2011/12/21 19:42
I normally play Blitz more times daily than I can count... Started on my iTouch when I first bought the app as part of Bejeweled. When I got my iPad (prior to this new version) I could play the one I was used to in the smaller mode on my iPad as opposed to full screen. Then,at first, I tried the new one and found myself immediately going back to the original app as I have real problems playing it on the full screen. I am glad I did not have to purchase this new one as I would have immediately asked for a refund!!! WHY did you not let those of us who were used to and loved the original app to be able to still use it as it was originally?!?!?!? You forced the original app I bought to be updated and/or converted to include the new Blitz app within it. That just plain stinks in my book!!! I feel you are morally obligated to return the original app that I and countless others bought and paid for to be returned to its original form. One can always use the new app to access the free spin... Also -- why can one no longer see the weekly scores on the graph and the other friendly competitive pluses that are non-existent in the new one?!?!? In my book, you tried but it was NOT a good plan. Steve Jobs would not have been happy with this change!
Awesome
by Mumof2gals on 2012/04/27 09:28
Such a time waster!! Bad bad bad thing to have on the iPad! I might need to go to Bejeweled anonymous!! This game is quick and fun and a great way to make time go by while waiting for something or another. It is addicting though and before you know it, one minute becomes 60! Edit April 27'12: the game is still fun and a few times I won a 25k, 50k and 100k jewel spin, whoohoo :) I play it everyday when I need to make time go by faster. Now and then the game can't log in, usually after an update, to FB. While I am ok with the occasional down time, it shouldn't happen each time an upgrade happens. It just doesn't look good on the developer part. So, while I am ok on/offline, I am removing one star for lack of checking or what not before releasing an update. I do have one request, can you make the abandon button not so close to the rare gem harvesting button? I realise that you want people to use the rare gem and make money from extra spins but it's a bit too easy to accidentally push - and there's no confirm button to use the rare gems, it just goes.
MOVE the BUTTON already
by Vivalasvegas2000 on 2012/12/08 00:46
UPDATE: Do not buy coins!! The special gem green button placement is a scam to burn your coins to get you to buy more. I have been playing this game for almost a year and there is a glitch where the game will pause or revert back to the old screen so you push the "buy a rare gem" green button rather than the "play" button. I think this is a purposeful scam because I have never "accidentally" purchased a cheaper gem. It only happens on the 75,000 coin gem. I do not think it is an accident! I have never bothered complaining on a review, but I think this is truly a scam and it aggravates me every time I feel ripped off. ORIGINAL POST: I love this game but refuse to give it more than one star until they MOVE the rare gem BUTTON. It takes too many games to earn coins just to have the game force you to use them because of their ridiculous placement of the button. I can't even let my kids play because they will always hit the big, green button and use my coins. And I refuse to pay for more coins since I feel swindled out of them every time I accidentally hit that button. Why cause such angst in your players who otherwise would be enjoying your game?? PLEASE fix this immediately!
Dumped it after 12 yrs of loyalty
by MonkeyBlue69 on 2014/06/27 15:11
I have played this game for over 12yrs. I have pd. for the app on several phones, have it on three pc's and now on my iPad. After this last update of blitz they are drowning my game with full page ads. I looked up the opt out and even if you DO choose that all it means is they will now send ads that do not pertain to your interests, but will drowned u with all kinds of ads so there is no way to stop it. I was in first place and had a lot of special gems saved not to mention all the time I spend playing this because it helps keep your mind quick also. I have removed the game for good after all these yrs. the last straw was this mornings pop ups started freezing my iPad and had to shut down and restart every time, enough is enough. Typical of big business, u have a good thing going and u throw everyone who made u right out the window. Good going Google. I bet people who spend a lot of money playing the game are not suffering with these pop ups. Just another way for them to weed out people who like the game for competition, meeting people and just fun. I am so done with on line live gaming. Leaves me more time on my other activities, good riddance.
Bejeweled Blitz for iPad.
by Hadrian's Wall on 2015/02/17 01:39
Needs fixing!! If you accidentally hit the icon,you can not go to a spot to back out of it, and it eats up from 50,000 to 100,000 coins!!! I don't like to bet coins. I only like to play an accumulate them. You should not be forced to play that way if you don't have to. The one on my iPhone lets you change it. Make a change your mind spot please!!! Now it turning to a black screen and it comes back you are short 70-80k coins! What is the matter with this game???????????? Ok. This is the third time I have tried to let you people know that your site is messed up. Instead of adding to your earned coins you are taking them away. Is there something wrong on your site? Apparently you do not publish the reviews is problems or complaints. So in that case is will just post your problems on FaceBook and spread the word about your errors by mouth. Might take a while but I'll feel better. Why try gaining anything if your counter is going to deduct instead of adding!!!!
My addiction has been cured by all the bad updates
by AnnB11261 on 2012/12/31 21:55
I've been addicted to this game for 2+ years. However, in trying to make the game "better", the last several updates have just made it so I don't even want to log in anymore. Starting from the top: 1) The game is taking longer and longer to load 2) It doesn't always recognize me/my friends, so I'm playing against a bunch of made up character names 3) When I've already taken my spin for the day I still have to go past this screen on subsequent plays of the day 4) If I'm lucky enough to finish a game without it crashing, the game crashes right at the end of the game and kicks me out. 5) I don't even bother purchasing any of the boosts, because when the game kicks me out, it doesn't remember that I have two more games left to play with those boosts. I'm spending less and less time with this game, and subsequently less an less likely to talk my Facebook friends into playing it, too. I did not upgrade to the new OS system because of all the bad news about it, but this shouldn't be the reason a perfectly good game has gone down the tubes.
Getting tired of little reward

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!!
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
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.
Unhappy camper
by Mamawpkd on 2014/02/03 18:23
Not happy with update. When I hit login it only shows me. Then when I go out and come back in it shows the other players and their scores I played offline and it was ok. Don't understand why you messed with it I love the game just not this update. Rate is for update. Since the update I very seldom break 100,000. I have to use coins for the 75,000 to get a descent score and then it goes away every week. I use to score 200,000+ a lot now hardly ever. Like and will keep it but don't play like I use to. Getting to where I hate this game. Use to love it. I can never get more than 25,000 points unless I use coins to buy the things. Before upgrade I could get 200,000 May delete. Use to place it constantly now hardly ever. Need memory for other things. PLEASE FIX. Back again I know I'm getting old and I play this to help with memory but still discouraged. Same gripes!!!!!! Update Now when I logout and spin it will not add coins to my total. Then when I log back in I actually loose coins. Ugh
Frustrating but addicting
by Mod011000 on 2013/03/21 02:39
Great game and wonderfully addicting! However, there two things that frustrates me to the point I'm going to delete the app and find something else to fulfill my boredom. The first thing is the Daily Spin has become less than amusing. I'm not winning anything over than 10k and that us not very often. Before I would earn more allowing to purchase different jewels. Now I have to play longer just to earn enough coins. The last and most frustrating of all is the placement of the offer to purchase the jewels. After my game is complete I have the option to play again or purchase a special jewel that will help me gain more coins. Well on at least 4 occasions when I've try to bypass the purchasing of the jewel and just play the next game, I end up purchasing the jewel which deducts coins from my earnings. Therefore I can't save enough coins to get the big jewel to purchase. Any suggestions for a nothing addicting game, but this time without the headaches...
Additictive, Fun, but Occasionally Annoying
by Wyatt the Odd on 2014/03/06 01:28
This is not the app to use if you expect gemstones to shoot out of your iPhone. That doesn't happen here. Ever. For that, you'll need to download Magic Genie Lamp and rub vigorously. Please note that you must have also installed "Living in Fantasyland" into your wetware. Given that, who is this game for? Why, anyone who wants to kill a few minutes without the risk of "just one more level" during an executive meeting. Also, it's ideal for anyone with failed lapidary dreams. Why? Because, as the name says, you're blowing up precious gems. And, you've only got a minute before your horde is replaced by the top score screen. This is a game that seems to genuinely want you to rack up a massive score even if you don't use real money to buy the in-game coins. Each night, they give you a pull at the slot machine. And, the game will show you possible moves if you're stuck - it just won't show you the best move. The latest update seems to have geeked a couple of things. It keeps trying to open my phone's Game Center despite me disabling it. Also, after the trying the slot machine, you have to wait for the game to decide that you've read the message about when your next pull is available before it'll let you out. I've accidentally bought more "rare" gems because of this glitch than those I've bought on purpose.
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!
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.
Please let older iPads play the previous version!
by Blitzless on 2015/01/24 03:37
I have been addicted to this game for years and built my coins up to nearly 10,000,000. Last week I was forced to try to upgrade to the newer version of Blitz. I didn't think my old iPad could support it, but figured if it couldn't I would still be able to play the older version that I came to love. When I tried to click on Blitz again I was given the option of " do not upgrade now". It just ejected me from the game. I tried several times with no satisfaction. I really would appreciate a fix that would let me click on the "not now" option and reload my old version and keep the coin bank. I don't need brighter gems I just need the old version since I'm not buying a new iPad just to play this game.
Awesome idea!!!!
by Candas Fields on 2012/03/07 22:06
Love this game!!! Dont enjoy the fact that sometimes when I get 50k I get 500 coins or sometimes get 200k and still get 500 coins......I know you can buy coins but not everyone wants to buy them all the time. And you should get more coins for getting 200k. So I think if you get 50k, you get 500 coins, 100k a 1000, 200k 2000 coins and so on. Even if you got a million, you would only get 10,000 points. Just get rid of the coins on the jewels, keep the "2X, 3X, etc" for additional points, that way we don't get bored playing all the time just to get to the "Phoenix prism". That's my favorite part of the game, is when I get that and add three more things in my boxes!!! Its rock and roll time when that happens!!! Please please please consider this!!! Oh and to confirm some stuff already mentioned......my Facebook check in is fine, and yes, the 500k medal doesnt get added...... Thanks
Not an improvement over previous version
by Sun Quest on 2013/02/22 05:37
Won't save settings when I turn off music volume and disable auto-renewal of boosts. If I completely exit out of bejeweled blitz so it is not running in the background, then the settings revert back to defaults. I uninstalled and reinstalled this version and that did not help. I don't like auto-renewal always defaulting to on. Please fix as this is annoying. Update: After playing new version since installing it yesterday I can honestly say I see it as being less favorable than I previously thought. It is SLOW! Very very slow. It went from the gems falling fast to me being able to say "click click click" as they drop. This is on my iPhone4. I was getting around 800k, and now the best I can get is around 500k. I will not be using any more coins or buying any spins to get coins until it is fixed. I am downgrading the rating to 1 star. Wish I could give it zero instead as this game is no longer fun to play due to the jerky dropping of the gems. I really wish I hadn't upgraded.
Bejeweled Blitz
by GameDweeber on 2013/06/09 01:19
I love this game so much, but I'm kind if tired o the constant bugs that it has. One, for example, is not opening right away. Also, it hasn't been saying my high score for the week. And I'm kind of ticked that, for whatever reason, I has 50,000 coins total after one round and then the next, I have about 13,000. I mean, what happened to all my coins? I didn't use them on anything. They just disappeared. Not looking at the bugs and my complains, I think that the game is overall pretty good. It keeps me entertained for hours in the car for long car trips, or just entertained around the house when I have nothing to do. It's a lot of fun to play with my friends as well. Like at a party, my friends and I can pass my iPod around, playing this, seeing who can get the highest score. All in all, it's a great game. But please, fix the bugs.
Facebook login Difficulties
by STC's Eagle Scout on 2014/08/20 00:14
For over 4 months and 2 updates I have Currently been unable to play Bejeweled through Facebook on the app. Bejeweled will not recognize my Facebook account to play the online version after 3 updates. It doesn't even load to able to type my password. Each time it will say searching & reach the point to say sorry can not load Facebook your account at the moment please try again latter. Well I thought it was just a one or two time issue but unfortunately it has been doing this for an estimated over 4 months I have tried to long in every other day to play but would not allow me in. I was not sure if a new update would be made soon so I have been just waiting till the latest update was available to download. I like this game a lot and play it almost every day. I have had no troubles playing the offline version of Bejeweled.
STINGIEST GAME EVER - but can be the best
by Jmar7817 on 2012/06/20 05:48
I've been playing bejeweled blitz for nbover two years now and it is by far my favorite game I've ever played on any platform. However, the game is designed by money hungry thugs who make you pay absurd prices to unlock the games most fun features which make the game unique, and of course higher scores. THE PRICES OF THE COINS AND OUTCOME OF THE SPINS ARE OUTRAGEOUS relative to the prices of the boosts let alone rare gems, let alone using both at once. no one should even have to buy coins but for whatever reason the max coins you can get in a game is 1400. a single game can cost up to 80,000. that is robbery. the BEST deal you can get without promotions is just over a million coins for $10. you could use a million in 13 games aka 15 minutes! Not trying to get into the spins and the consistent low winnings whether you buy them or not, but at the current costs of the boss and gems, which should be free anyways and probably should each have their own high score leaderboard because the game becomes completely different with them, the spin jackpot should be 10 million minimum with 25,000 the lowest possible winnig amount. anything less doesn't even buy you three minutes worth of playing the game it should be offered in the first place. talk about not caring about your customers. Here the game is free but if you wanna play it without any restrictions it's gonna be $40 an hour. THIEVES!!
Addicting, fun but frustrating!
by G-Goil on 2012/07/24 05:19
This game is fun to kill time with. Very addicting. Very challenging always trying to beat my own score. But frustrating as all get up! I used to waste coins on gems and boosts.....until I found out that I spent more in coins and never really boosted my score at all. I get more coins/points by playing without 'em! Also, I noticed what seemed like every other day, my score would go down and I'd have to keep playing to get back to the high scores I had left off with. What's up with that?! Just now I got to spin for coins and after doing so, it said I had 15 more hours until the next spin. I accidently shut off my iPad and when I turned it back on to play the same game, it let me spin again in less than 10 minutes!! Only this time it went back to my old coinage amount and gave me a lower one then the first! Whatever! Has bugs...but it's still fun.
No more score building "Last Hurrays"
by Shaazie on 2013/03/14 19:34
Has this happened to anyone else: I acquired one million plus coins only by the free daily spins and earning coins and not buying the special gems or using game boosts. Since achieving the million plus coins, the "Last Hurrah" no longer happens... No more falling gems matching up and increasing the score, etc when un exploded gems are detonated after time is up, during the supposed last hurrah. I know the game has changed because I've played it long enough to know what the game did before the one million coins and now. The difference is readily noticeable. Also, I keep I unchecking the box to send anonymous game stats, and I play a game, go back into Help, and the box is checked again, to allow stats to be sent. I used to like this game, but not now. Is this how PopCap forces people to spend coins, to get high scores I can no longer achieve before earning one million coins? Before this, I actually had a score of 204,000 without using any helps, and now I'm lucky if I can get 50,000.
A step forward and 3 steps backward!
by Monket on 2011/12/11 09:48
This game was a 5 star before, now it's down to 3. On the Plus side. We got better graphics that look great with the Retina Display, we got also the Daily Spin (FINALLY!) but sometimes doesn't give you all the coins for all your friends that have the app on FB, just for the ones that have played that week. Bad! On the bad side... Mmhh... Where can I start? Ok, pretty much everyone else has said about the game being slower and therefore scores have decreased. About the scores, well, it takes time to get used to, but if you play it well enough your scores will improve back to your old average. I have scored a few 150k's without buying power-ups, but yes, I think the game would be better if it had the old speed. Gone is the explosion at the end of the game. Without it, feels like something is missing, that you need... Closure? Like the game ends all of a sudden. It feels incomplete. Most important thing missing is the levels!!!! WHERE ARE THEY? That's one of the better parts of playing it on FB. Please BRING THAT BACK! I have the feeling that they rush the game out the door. Why? We were happy before and didn't expected (nor wanted) an update. One last thing, I tried to play the old one from either the Bejeweled 2 App or from Facebook and it's gone! It brings back this unfinished piece of software!
Darn good
by ChristopherDrum on 2011/12/23 15:28
But jewel movement feels sluggish (iOS 5 on iPhone 4; very few open apps), and touch events seem to get misinterpreted frequently. I drag a jewel left, only to have it swap in a different direction. So attempts to strategically make a power gem can be foiled. I appreciate that the retina graphics are used on the iPad version now as their "native" interface, but it is still just a scaled up iPhone app. Can't rotate devices to play in landscape. And overall it just seems telling that I've never broken 350,000 on iOS devices, but quickly broke 500,000 on my desktop system. If this is an artifact of touch input vs mouse superiority or an artifact of how Bejeweled is implemented on iOS, I really can't say. Glad it is free, but was bummed that my previously purchased game has been killed and replaced with another pay-for app. Not really sure what the tactic there is.
I love this game!

I have been playing this game for years! It is very addictive and it is fun. The game has improved in many ways, however, when you want to use your coins, the purchases are quite expensive and you end up loosing your valuable coins too fast. I presently have over 14 million points accumulated and now the game tries to force me to upgrade to a new version. I do not want any upgrade for this game. I enjoy the old version which I have been playing for years. Beside I do not want to lose all my points! What is the issue here? Why do I have to go to another version that is not supported by my iPod? I am extremely happy with my old version!!! Please fix this problem. This is unfair to us who have enjoyed this game for years. I also find that it is very unfair that we can't not longer play with our Facebook friends, whom we have play with for so many years. Please fix this problem! You are making us very unhappy forcing us out of a game that we have enjoyed for so long. I spent a lot of money buying the coins to play and now you want to take them away? This is very but very unfair and inhuman! This is not right! Hoping you respond to our request... Flaqui
Bejeweled is now a real blitz!
by )-C-( on 2014/01/23 07:03
I started playing bejeweled years ago on the PC. I loved the game. Graphics and sounds were just wonderful. Then I got an iPad. Bejeweled blitz is fun for when you're in a hurry. But the sounds are unpleasant. I do not like to listen to it artillery sounds, and I do not care for the music. I play games to relax. Blitz is designed to produce stress. The in game purchase buttons are designed to make one give up tokens. One almost always gives up more tokens than one "wins." I refuse to participate in Facebook and dislike the incentives designed to encourage signing up. I get enough stress at work. Please offer a relaxing one minute game. The latest update is very pretty: The graphics are stunning; however, the game freezes, and things don't work the way they're supposed to. Frankly, I have lost the desire andto play it as often as I have in the past.
Fun, fast-paced, and overly luck-driven
by Tivor on 2012/01/10 11:41
Fun, fast-paced, and bite-sized, this is one of those perfect "play while waiting in line" game. My only gripe is that getting a high score is really a matter of luck than any skill on the player's part. Bejeweled gameplay was always heavily dependent on luck, but it's much more so this time around, since you're playing within a strict time limit. For me, this takes away from the fun of going for a high score. There is no sense of "hey, I'm getting good at this" with this game. It's like playing slots at a casino; you're just hoping to get lucky. (the game even features its own slots mini-game too, after all!) But when you take this game as a simple (and free!) diversion while, say, waiting in line, then my gripe quickly loses its meaning. Just enjoy the light show, and hope the luck strikes your way.
Daily Fail Facebook Only
by Morp60 on 2015/03/16 01:01
I love blitz and enjoy playing, but this latest update which sounded great really wasn't. The daily challenge prizes can't be claimed without a Facebook account, not even the coins. Why can't I get the coins I earn? That should be easy since I can spend coins on second tries and the lack of those coins goes through but the coins I earn never show up. I don't agree with but understand not redesigning the game so Facebook free players can't claim the rare gems we earn but not giving us our coins AND not making that clear so we don't waste the coins we have on second tries to earn more is quite simply a dick move and you should be ashamed of yourselves. My decision to not join Facebook can exclude me from bonuses but I shouldn't be penalized for it. No matter how you deny it that is what you are doing. To all players without Facebook play the daily challenge for free but don't waste your coins to win prizes you can't claim, not even the coins.
Bejeweled Blitz
by Tomgun1130 on 2012/07/24 03:28
I had a total knee replacement in January. My son let me use his IPOD to at least get online while strapped to my knee motion machine for two hours 4 times a day. My son also found the Blitz game for me for free and put it on the iPod. I had seen it on FB, tried it and liked it. I play it offline which is my favorite way. My other son came over and saw that I constantly had his brothers iPod and offered me his since he only used it for his music and he has another type of iPod. Well, it is now late July and I still have my son's iPod to play bejeweled blitz alot! I still prefer to play offline and I love getting the free spins! This is the ONLY game I play! Thanks for such a fun game! I would really love to be able to receive more free spins :)
Addicting!

I love a good timed puzzle game, and this definitely fits the bill. Can be a little aggravating at times, but overall I really have enjoyed Blitz. I do have a few complaints, though (and all of them deal with coins): - Coin pack cost a pretty penny, which is why I refuse to pay for them! - Maybe it's my imagination, but the daily spin prizes have gone waaaay down in value. Bummer! - For how long it takes to build up coins the free way, those rare gems sure do cost a lot for just one round! Even if you did buy coins, they go quickly with the current game setup. I almost never use rare gems or the boosters due to sheer coin drain, and it really does take a long time to build up the coin bank for just one or two rounds of boosted-up fun. I know it's a common business model to build revenue for app-games (especially free ones), but seriously, I'd rather pay for the app up front! These business models makes me not want to contribute real money at all. It's ludicrous to shell out a fair amount of cash for something as arbitrary as one round of boosts in a silly game. Rant aside, though, this game is pretty fun. Although I hate having sound on for Blitz, the voice is a bit creepy and the music is stressful! Haha.
Level ranking
by Zeroskater61 on 2012/07/09 22:07
I recently updated and now doing the whole coin thing and it's seems cool and it seems to be working fine for me just one thing bugs me though and that's the score ranking medals/emblems why does it only give you one ranking when you reach a high score? Say if you pass 25k you get 1.. 25k ranking but if you past that and get a 50k score you only get the 50k ranking should'nt I also be getting the 25k ranking as well since I've passed that one up and now moved on to the next ranking level? My all time high score is 365,550 now you would assume I would get the 25k,50k,75k,100k,125k,150k,175k (and so on) ranking since I've passed all these but I don't it only gives you one every time and that to me seems quite dumb actually since every time I play am always around 125k and am only getting the 125k each time but not the others ones below it..
