Bonus Game and Daily Spin Are Not Randomized
by Disappointed5342689 on 2016/05/04 06:48
I love Bejeweled Blitz, but I have been playing this game for 5+ years, on almost a daily basis and have never, not once, spun the 1,000,000 coin jackpot spin. In addition, in any of the bonus games, after you play a round, where you choose one of the 9 items for extra coins, the top two prize amounts seem to ALWAYS elude me. In 5 years of playing, almost everyday, and choosing the same item, in the same place, 25+ games in a row, you think by now I would have chosen one of the top prizes if the game was randomized. I think you guys have become extremely money hungry and have disappointed your loyal fans!
A step too far with promotional advertising
by Devokent on 2016/05/04 05:23
Sorry to see the demise of what use to be an entertaining game. Too bad the game developers sold out to a corporation to actually infuse the game with an Insurance Company advertising characters. A step too far. Bye bye Bejeweled Blitz.
Will not open
by Sweet Lucky Charm on 2016/05/03 19:58
Will not open since the update.
Reset?
by Dakota4.7 on 2016/05/03 18:15
When you reset game and scores, how the heck does the same other people that's top of list retain their score or instantly get like 950,000 score? And I'm back to a big fat zero? I know that many people don't get high scores like that in 1 da__ second! :-@
Full of Ads and Traps
by MarioStar998 on 2016/05/03 15:19
This app has gone down the drain. Ads are popping up. You get "special gems" every time you press play. If you decide to restart your game, you'll get another "offer" of a "special gem." They place the buy button right over the play button, so if you are not careful, you will waste ALL of your coins pressing buy instead of play. They are using the classic trap of trying to make you spend REAL MONEY on In App Purchases. You waste all your coins so you feel the need to BUY some. Matching gems is harder too. I remember getting this app years ago. I was getting 500,000 points easily. Now I'm lucky if I can get 200,000. Again, they are making you BUY power-ups to get 500,000 points. If you don't have enough coins, no worry! We SELL some. Don't waste your time. This app is full of corporate tricks to make money.

Do not like that the game is taking my coins for the free gems I've been awarded. Other than that I like playing the game....but will think twice before buying coins
Boring Challenges
by Pnd48s on 2016/05/03 00:11
The daily challenge is now just a bunch of Letter P tiles, for Progressive Insurance. Can you bring back the true flowers and other little icons that are much cuter?
Daily challenge is broken
by BlitzBoy28 on 2016/05/02 20:02
Please fix. Game is fairly useless without the daily challenge.
Pop-ups Incessantly
by AKGriz01 on 2016/05/02 18:12
Fun game when I don't have too constantly click through pop-up ads. Progressive ads are the worst! Stop rigging the game to favor advertisers!!! Horrible!!!!
Daily Challenge!
by Paularkb on 2016/05/02 12:41
What is up with Progressive being the daily challenge everyday? It's getting really boring.
I dread updates on this thing
by beepbeepzipbang on 2016/05/02 12:38
I'm really stunned how every time I think they've gone as low as they can the new update comes and the bar drops. The whole game is now an ad for Progressive insurance. Goodbye fun different icons for holidays and seasons. It's all branded now. And maybe it's just me but I haven't been able to win a single game since the switch. Just plain terrible. I was down to playing the once a day free games and now it seems like it's not even worth bothering.
Annoying
by Doxie pap chi on 2016/05/02 04:40
This used to be fun but now it crashes all the time or it stalls during the daily challenge. It has also become a giant commercial for Progressive. I don't feel that it lets me progress and win gems anymore. I'm over it now.
SPAM ALERT
by Marcus4fan on 2016/05/02 02:35
I paid for the ad free version. Then along came an update. Now I get a commercial for a war game 24/7 after every game played. I'm hoping for a class action lawsuit to get my $ back. This is ridiculous.
Blitz
by Moronixidiot5544363 on 2016/05/01 20:41
It opens for me but as soon as it opens it flips off. Just started doing that . Have been plAying it
Language problem
by Wanna be snowwhite on 2016/05/01 18:54
Not quite sure what is causing my problem but requests for all games are coming in French on Facebook. Very annoying. Anyone else have this problem?
Crappy
by MamaNanu on 2016/05/01 14:46
Game used to be a lot of fun until the last update. Now my points aren't being calculated and I CAN'T ACCESS THE DAILY CHALLENGE!!!!! Nothing happens when you click the button. I will delete the game if there isn't a fix soon. No sense of it taking up space.
Daily challenge not workinv
by Kkh9 on 2016/05/01 13:29
Ever since the last update the daily challenge link/button hasn't worked. Please fix
Awesome
by Lita081406 on 2016/05/01 03:35
This game is my favorite game to play
Bejeweled Blitz
by Spelabee on 2016/05/01 02:56
I discovered this game many yrs ago and I'm still LOVIN IT!!!Such a Great GAME.....PBey
Ruined
by ultraclay! on 2016/04/30 21:54
I've been hooked on this game for years, so I guess I should be thankful that the bloated updates have made it so unplayable that I'm kicking the habit. Between the minute long download at startup, the ads between games and the pop ups sneakily timed to make you press purchase when you want to start a new game, I now play far less than I ever have before. So, thanks?
Bejeweled "Truly A Blitz"
by Kac4385 on 2016/04/30 21:45
Offered a free "chromostone" I accepted & it did not appear.....not the first time I have been offered a boost & not received it! I feel helpless, do not want to play your game when this happens.
Progressive thievery
by GOT247 on 2016/04/30 17:54
Having Progressive sponsor your daily game is fine for you, but now we cant even win in the first level. I had already stopped playing the blitz weekly games. It's just no fun. I cant stand Flo anyway Why do you mess with things that weren't broken?
Daily challenge
by Cheryl7891 on 2016/04/30 17:32
Since I upgraded I am unable to use the daily challenge on my mobile app
Ms
by Sulushus on 2016/04/30 17:26
After upgrading, the app won't even open. I think an fix is in order.
It crashes
by Mchick888888 on 2016/04/30 13:02
All. The. Time. And what else matters if the app can't stay open without crashing and closing?
Please Fix
by SPECIALNEEDSMAMA on 2016/04/29 21:26
After the last update I can't play the bonus plays anymore. Please fix this.
Never again!!!
by Mana0612 on 2016/04/29 20:23
I had over 25-30 rare gems saved up and then all of the sudden they are all gone. After repeated emails requesting assistance PopCap customer service had me going through hoops to get them a user ID number. Then I was advised I had an inactive account. I won't be playing this game or any other PoCap games!!!
Paying for ads
by Julius Fever on 2016/04/29 20:07
The ads are out of control. All of the forced ad clicks are prompting me to leave this review and delete the app. I paid for this app and was a daily user, but the greedy pushiness of their advertisements is no longer bearable.
Frustrated
by Doodles2x on 2016/04/29 18:12
OK so you get the bugs out yay. But now you're just running a bunch of insurance ads,which is annoying. Guess I'll wait to play until you're done with the annoying ads.
Maximum Level Reached
by Froglegs55 on 2016/04/29 17:21
I have reached the Max level! Please add more levels. I'm totally addicted!
Fun game, too many ads
by BonzoTheOriginal on 2016/04/29 17:02
I've enjoyed this game on several IOS devices. It's always been fun. Lately, they have added commercials to stop the play and annoy the player. I realize that it is a way to keep the game going. But it's very annoying to have to wait to skip a video on a product I don't care about. You get in a roll and a Toyota commercial breaks in. Come on. Stop with the videos between every game. I almost want to delete it from my device.
Pop up ads on every screen
by Btalbott1969 on 2016/04/29 09:30
Once was a 5 star game now I hardly play as its a constant barrage of pop up advertising. My friends have all deleted the game for this reason and I have no one playing to compete with when once I had 25. 2 million plus coins so I have been playing awhile and I hate to leave but the developers have taken all the reasons to stay away. It's become a advertising agency not a game.
Good game, but...
by ohnoyoudidnt! on 2016/04/29 05:24
4/28 Update: Demoted to 2 stars for giving me an ad as a gem reward. Lame. 4/16 Update: The daily challenges were much more creative, challenging, and fun before y'all started pimping car insurance. I used to look forward to what y'all were going to come up with, now it's just the same old thing over and over, with a different title. I understand y'all need to pay the bills, but did the deal kill your creative spirit? UPDATE: rating changed to 5 stars for addressing the issue below. thank you!!! :) what's up with forcing me to log in through Facebook to earn Daily Challenge rewards?? I paid the coins to play, the earned reward should be given regardless. I do not have, nor want, a Facebook account, and feel that it is highly unfair to force people to make or use one to experience the full game. I would (gladly) rather pay for the app to have access to all features without Facebook. Review will change to 5 stars once this discrimination issue is addressed.
Couldn't Tell You If I Wanted To
by Swtsnshyn on 2016/04/29 03:32
Ever since the update, I can't play the Daily Challenge because it won't open. Now we are almost into May and the Daily Challenge button still is not working!!!
Disappointed, please update
by Renluv on 2016/04/29 00:40
Every update screws up some portion of this game. I love the daily special and haven't been able to play it in weeks. Please fix so I may play the special dailies!
Fix It
by Melp462 on 2016/04/28 23:11
Please fix the daily challenge!!! Blitz is no fun without the daily challenge! If it's not fixed there's no point in playing.
Help
by Hommiethedog on 2016/04/28 22:40
Usually a five star, but every once in a while til take everything away. Had four million points but now everything's gone and it wants me to start over
Ugh!!!
by Dee Huckstep on 2016/04/28 20:26
I have been playing this game for a long time and this last update is horrible!! The challenge won't load, the gems won't download completely!! I am going to have to find a different game!!
Bout to quit for good
by Jerzree on 2016/04/28 16:49
I used to love this game but now it cheats and doesn't give you all the coins you earned during game play using the special jewels. It's ripped me off at least 4x recently. And now it has tons of ad interruptions that were never an issue before. 😑👎🏾 Disappointed
Still addicted....
by Sheabird's on 2016/04/28 14:42
.....after all these years. Even more addicting and fun on an iPhone 6s +! Wondering why the daily challenge isn't what it says it is, eg., challenge says rocket blast but it's actually a Progressive insurance thing, not the rocket blast?
Not Happy With Update
by KHlee_12 on 2016/04/28 03:02
I'm not happy with the latest update. The "update" resulted in my inability to continue playing the game because the "update" wouldn't installed. Now I've got an app on my screen that won't go open or disappear when I try deleting it.
Game cheats
by Susen5670 on 2016/04/28 00:51
I had a score of 460,000 and it knocked me down to number 11 to someone who had a score of 380,000 what is up with that and then it does not give you the points you achieve while playing the game also does not give you the time that it is suppose to also it steals one of my swap boosts. Yes it does cheat you of score and points and does not matter what you achieve it only keeps you low and does not give you your true achieved score or points cheaters and rip off what's up with this game reboot this game some screwed up on game brain ,,,,,why does this review constantly come up do you even read these reviews. Do something about it or I will go public with this game and let everyononeknow not to play. A big rip off and cheaters I will finish my coins and points and then I am out of here
Daily Challenge
by RobE2760 on 2016/04/27 16:55
Won't open :-(
Daily Challenge doesn't work
by 2ANDFRO on 2016/04/27 12:35
New version has a bug with the Daily Challenge. I tap on the button, but nothing happens. Please fix this!
Daily challenge does not work on my iPhone 6 after latest update
by Ljp52 on 2016/04/27 10:22
Please hurry up and fix the problem.
Great Game BUT..
by Raydollabillz on 2016/04/26 20:57
The daily challenge has stopped working as many have said! It doesn't cost me money to play, so I don't consider anything in this game a ripoff, but the daily challenges made the game 2x more fun! Please fix I keep tapping it and nothing happens. Otherwise 10/10
I'm done
by Stangfireman on 2016/04/26 15:42
After the latest update, can't get daily spin to work. Obviously it's been an issue for a while after reading the reviews. And they don't seem to care to fix it. Tired of wasting my time with this game.
Not loading
by Watiche on 2016/04/26 07:51
Every since I updated the will not load! I will appreciate if this is corrected, Thank you. I hate the newest updated app. Want the old back. I going to stop playing if this situation is not corrected!!!
March 15 update
by Honeybrat on 2016/04/26 03:21
Am very disappointed with the Mar. 15 update like others, I finally had to delete the game. Lost over 300,000 points and my game levels. I would be a little happier if you would reinstate at least my points on the new installed game. Thanks, Honeybrat Also I am not getting any new games to play. Just same old Basic games. What has happened?????
Constant download
by Still needs work on 2016/04/26 02:33
Hard to play when it is constantly downloading
What gives?
by Bluebird3712345 on 2016/04/26 02:32
I'm so sad the daily challenge button is broken. I only have a few games in my phone and am a loyal jewels fan. Bring back my game. I shake my head and wonder why. What gives? Is this not the USA? Can you not send things through qa testing before updating?
Fix Dailey Challenge
by Appsuxair on 2016/04/26 02:23
Your last update ruined the Dailey challenge. This is horrible
Updates keep crashing
by Aldopop on 2016/04/26 01:29
Another bad update Really!!! Now it's impossible to open daily spins which is a big part of the game & Data charges being splash ed across the screen are competing with massive amounts of ads Just about done with this app for good !! Gonna lose a lot of people cause you guys aren't listening......
Irreparably busted
by Rhymes with carbon on 2016/04/26 01:12
One of my most used apps for years is irreparably busted. The daily challenge hardly ever downloaded, and now hilariously, trying to log in using Facebook opens TuneIn radio! Why on earth is it doing that? Forget it PopCap, try again.
Awful
by Jules.5280 on 2016/04/25 21:45
So sick of the glitches.. Now the Daily Bonus feature doesn't work. Hit button & nothing happens. Tried removing app & reloading, now I can't even login!,, this is RIDICULOUS!! I needed a reason to stop blowing money on this app.. Thank you for doing a great job of convincing me. I'm done.
3/14/2016 update killed the app.
by o1d_dude on 2016/04/25 18:50
Now the app opens to a broken graphics screen and immediately crashes to desktop. Not happy. Will be even unhappier if my winnings are lost. Update: After finally coming back on line, the game has now tightened up the winnings through raised qualifying limits, multi-colored exploders that only can be triggered by one color, reduction in corner bonus jewels, and some other devious tricks. Me? I'm done with this time sink. My 3,000,000 will sit and digitally rot.
Crashes with update
by Baseballhunter on 2016/04/25 14:01
Waaaayyyy to many ads It crashed when I updated so I deleted and reinstalled. I try to login with Facebook and it opens up some recipe app. I know you improved the game but I didn't expect to have to dodge exploding grill cheese sandwiches, or dodging and hotdog missiles
Seriously??
by Deuce17 on 2016/04/25 08:09
Every time a new update comes out the daily challenge stops working. Either fix the problem or stop updating the game. Why does this keep happening over and over with each update? Seriously it's really annoying!!!
Please Update
by ducky1169 on 2016/04/25 04:35
This worked well until the iOS 8. Please update!!
Not happy
by Tangalangago on 2016/04/24 22:25
When playing gem and you finish it you never pick the 100.000 coins NEVER
Fix this app
by Kirsten40 on 2016/04/24 16:40
You have some serious issues with this app. First I couldn't do the daily challenge, I'd click it and nothing would happen. I deleted the app then reinstalled it. When trying to reconnect it with my Facebook it kept opening my TuneIn radio app. I had to delete my TuneIn app in order to get Bejeweled Blitz to connect with Facebook. Please fix these issues.
Blitz has stopped working
by Rena127 on 2016/04/24 15:12
I was the top player of my friends and two weeks ago now, Blitz stopped working. When I try to log in, it will only open in Tune-In Radio which takes me to Blitz music stations. That's crazy. I thought it would be working again by now. Rebooting my iPhone does not help. What to do?
Need to add more goals and levels
by Crazybutt44 on 2016/04/24 15:07
I wish you would add more goals and levels. I don't play much anymore since maxing everything out. It has kinda taken the fun out of it. There is no goal to try to obtain. Beating my friends is to easy. I hope you do this in a future update.
Bejeweled
by Deryn57 on 2016/04/24 11:00
This WAS a great game! Last update screwed it up! I can no longer get logged in. Keep getting sent to a radio site!?! Please fix this. I miss my favorite game and challenging my family members.
Daily challenge
by Fohoness on 2016/04/24 08:18
The daily challenge doesn't work anymore and ads are out of control. If you have limited data, don't play the game, cause it does video ads a lot.
Reduced my rating
by BrennyO on 2016/04/24 08:16
Ever since the last update on iOS the link for the daily challenge has been dead. No matter how much you click it nothing happens. Fix it and I'll fix my rating... After several days of this not being fixed I'm lowering my rating again. So many people have complained about this with no fix. Got fixed finally only to have the same problem after latest update. Let's learn from our mistakes yes?
Used to enjoy playing against FB friends
by valerama on 2016/04/24 04:14
Now the program wants to force me to connect to living social... And I didn't want to give it those permissions, so it won't connect. I'll hope it gets fixed on the next edition, otherwise it's just one more app that gets deleted.
Disapprove
by jm691958 on 2016/04/24 02:52
Do not like the fact that I cannot play the challenges. Also disapprove the fact me and a friend can't work together to receive awards or the accomplishments where you get rewards. Even the fact you can not collect what ur friends send you. I play a lot on my iPad and can't do any of these on it. Try to fix this. Was able to play the challenges until three days ago.. Otherwise would rate it 6 stars. But now 1 if I want to be generous. Why can you not put party mode on iPad?
Latest version won't play daily challenge on iOS
by Adjia on 2016/04/24 02:06
The latest version won't play daily challenge
What's with the adds?!
by Ed man34 on 2016/04/23 19:41
I payed for this game to play the game not be besieged with add after add😡 What a bunch of crap! Once again a company takes something so simple and just completely jacks it up. Will probably be deleting this forever. Thanks ruining one of the games I've had on my phone from day one. I wish I could give it 0 stars.
TOO MANY ADS
by rjhoag on 2016/04/23 17:47
I chose the paid version of this game so I didn't get all the ads, yet with each update it seems there are more and more ads! I am at a point now that I may delete this game just to avoid all the unwanted pop up ads!
Crashing
by Sneakypeekaboo28 on 2016/04/23 17:16
Can't open the app at all. Keeps crashing
Help
by Larrybob on 2016/04/23 17:15
When I log in to Facebook on my iPhone it launches tunein radio app. Why? Please fix. And what is up with all the ads here lately. I'm very close to deleting this game. I've played for years and enjoy it but it's getting to be more of a headache every day.
Update not very good
by Lanoyi on 2016/04/23 17:01
First I lost my five million coins, had to start from scratch again and have not hit a high number of coins in the daily free spin. Also the Daily Challenge button doesn't work. This game was fine and now it's not.
Another flawed update
by YankNY44 on 2016/04/23 16:49
This is the second update in a row that hasn't worked!! The daily challenge button hasn't worked for days! I'm about ready to just delete the app!
Daily challenge still isn't working
by aaymee2 on 2016/04/23 13:46
Haven't been able to load the Daily Challenge for days! When is the fix coming???
No Daily Challenge
by Ol' Texas Rocker on 2016/04/23 13:03
Since the latest update the daily challenge button does nothing! Will not open.
Ambush advertising warning!!!
by SaraKateinDixieLand on 2016/04/23 12:31
I have had this game for years and loved it, however over the last year the ambush advertising has become too much to handle. I will not buy a PopCap game ever again in the future. The pop-up video ads are just too much and you are not allowed to opt immediately out, not to mention the advertising that has such a tiny close button you always clink into the advertising pit of hell. Grow up PopCap! You made a great game horrible just by selling your soul to the advertising devil.
Can't log into Facebook
by E4369 on 2016/04/23 11:42
Taking me to Shop Your Way? Love that app, but how can I log into Facebook if blitz keeps taking me to the wrong app? Tried to file a help request and there's no such ability? So, how am I supposed to play?
Crashes
by MollyVilla on 2016/04/23 03:56
Second to last update, app crashed on loading. They fixed it after quite some time. Now, after another update, daily challenge stopped working. =(
Everything is gone!!
by npbarr2 on 2016/04/23 03:51
The most recent update has caused me to lose everything. Almost 3,000,000 coins, high ranks, spins, everything is gone!!!! It will not connect to Facebook. Every time I click to log in, it takes me to Kmart!!!!!!!! What is that about!
App won't open
by MomoftwinsMN on 2016/04/23 01:53
Upgraded the app and since then it will not open on my iPad.
Daily challenge
by Dahg.. on 2016/04/22 22:08
Since the last update I can no longer play the daily challenge. Very frustrated!
Things Have Gotten Worse

Ever since the last couple updates, nothing works right! No refresh on page, daily challenge doesn't work & other players scores don't show any longer. I used to love this game, but not so much lately.

Ever since the forced update it doesn't allow me to play the Daily Challenge. Never had a problem before the update...

I usually love this app, but it hasn't worked right since the last update.
Daily challenge issue
by I❤️Michael on 2016/04/22 01:17
Tap items and it will tell you new content to download. Once it loads you can play the challenge.
Don't bother
by CeCe1029 on 2016/04/21 23:42
Seems some didn't test their latest update before pushing it out to unsuspecting customers.
Won't load since update
by Shikatz on 2016/04/21 23:32
Love my Bejeweled, but can't play the daily challenge for over a week now. Maybe the last update???
ADDICTIVE

I love playing this game and enjoy all of the perks one can receive!

Another update...Another crash!!! Won't allow me to play the daily challenge.
I'VE HAD ENOUGH OF THE PROBLEMS!!!
by Kbritchie on 2016/04/21 21:21
Seems like updates should improve the the game, but with each update, a new problem develops. I've lost over 1,000,000 coins on a recent update, and now I cannot play the daily challenge. I'm deleting the game!!!
Updates are crap!
by leroylink on 2016/04/21 21:03
As of late, every update that Popcap puts out for Bejeweled Blitz is faulty. The past three or four that have been released have made it impossible to open the daily challenges or crash in general when loading.
Problem for years
by Daveed9425 on 2016/04/21 19:21
Daily challenges not downloading, saying that I need to be patient. When they do download the link doesn't work. This has been a problem ever since I downloaded the game a few years ago.
👎🏻
by Saver83 on 2016/04/21 18:01
Haven't been able to play the daily challenge in about a week now. You tap on the button and nothing happens. This is the 2nd update recently that has screwed up the whole game.
Ok
by JaySuong on 2016/04/21 14:13
This game is fun but freezes a lot.
Daily Challenge?
by MasonSaint on 2016/04/21 12:30
And yet another crappy update. Daily challenge is impossible to play. Press the button and nothing happens. Do you not have a test team? so yesterday I was going to update my review to say the problem was fixed but today the problem is back, can't play the daily challenge. When will it be fixed?
Nothing but Adware now.
by Jtmuthafukka on 2016/04/21 07:11
This game used to be cool but now it has turned into one big ad and a waste of my time. Used to love it but they shot themselves in the foot by adding all those stupid ads! Why??? I'm going to delete this commercial advertisement of a game.
Poor updates
by UPN2015 on 2016/04/20 23:59
Another update that doesn't work! Find another game! Save the aggravation!
Bejeweled blitz is fun!
by Bejeweled Leslie on 2014/06/20 05:05
This first paragraph is my most recent review...I changed the rating from a 4 to a 3 because of all the trouble with daily spins. Not only is it always such a low amount, sometimes it doesn't even work! This prevents you from gaining more coins for spinning up to 7 days in a row. Also I find it ironic that when the coins are 50% off on Fridays, I can't even buy them because I get this asinine message that says"loading the store. please stand by while we stock our shelves" LOL!! Then after 11pm when the coins are back to full price, I can magically access the store to buy coins!! But guess what?!?! I'm not going to buy them anymore. This game bores me with all the bugs. Please fix it. I love that you can get the streaks on rare gems and that you can see your stats too ( just like on a PC). However you can't connect to Facebook and play on an iPad (you have to use the app). Therefore, if you want to buy coins you have to get them through the iTunes store, you can't share spin winnings or check your messages like you can on Facebook. The graphics and loading speed are great, but the technical difficulties I'm having with making an in-app purchase is really annoying me right now. I would like to see the Bejeweled app be able to do all of the things that playing the game on Facebook does.
Great Pick-up 'n' Play Puzzle Gameplay
by DTx21 on 2015/01/03 05:17
A lot of Puzzle games like this require the player to rely heavily upon being incredibly pensive and reflecting deeply upon his or her move options and thinking ahead and strategizing, and only moving quickly once those conditions have been met. Not so with this game! It still requires the player to be observant and to think 2 or 3 seconds ahead, but mostly it demands him/her to have quick reflexes and resolute persistence. It's all about jumping in, making as many great matches as you can in a minute, and hoping you got a great score in the process. (Or at least that's how I play.) You don't need to worry about digging yourself into deep pit or painting yourself into a corner—the game will always drop the right colored gems to enable you to make at least one new move, so keep making those matches without fear for running out of moves. It has enough bells and whistles to enhance the longevity of the replay value. I totally recommend this game for Puzzle gamers who desire for a change of pace something faster and more simplistic yet still appropriately challenging in its own ways. My Rating: 9/10
Ahhhh, Much Better!
by Musigal5301 on 2016/03/22 12:31
March 18th update has fixed the bug that had rendered the game useless. We can play the game again. Thanks for listening!! ***UPDATE #2*** After reading that some had lost their stored gems, decided to check it out. All my stored gems were there. After being on that screen for a moment, though, got a pop-up telling me new content had been downloaded and was needing to be loaded. Pressed the button to load the new content and voilà, the game is now operating as it should...including the Daily Challenge. I never had an issue signing in with Facebook. I'm giving this only 4 stars because, while everything is back up and running, PopCap could do a better job explaining how to get their updates to actually function. It appears that there is more to it than just running the update feature. ***UPDATE #1*** I apparently spoke too soon. While it is true that we CAN play the game again, we can no longer play the daily challenge (Daily Spin works fine, though). Like others have stated, you can press the "Play Daily Challenge" button, but it does nothing...keeps you on the main screen. Taking my stars down to three for now.
READ THIS
by Remi The Master on 2012/05/22 07:12
Ok so I love this game and I wanted to start a new round really fast so I just double tap but then instead of the play button popping up, the rare gem pops up:( I bought it on accident with the free 50,000 coins for signing up.I backed out then turned off my iPod and turned it back on hoping it wouldn't save me buying it but then when I go back to the app, my coins are gone but the rare gem isn't their anymore. You guys should put the rare gems in the shop because when we want to buy it, we will buy it and when we don't want to buy it, we don't buy it. Popcap I bet that you guys won't read this message because it's just one person but if you wont put my money back, can you at least give me what I bought on accident. Oh and an idea to make people want to but the rare gems is to make them permanent in a casual mode that stops when their are no more moves. I would actually buy those gems if you guys made them permanent. So to sum it up, fix my problem, make a casual game mode, and make rare gems permanent. You guys should make more rare gems and make them cheaper of they are going to be a one time use. I hope you guys listen to me!
Pros & cons
by jaw443 on 2012/03/11 06:31
Addicting fun app, well done, but for a long time, there is a glitch where scores over 500 don't count toward a gold medal, it's stuck on 8/10. So I find myself trying to slow down to avoid going over 500 because I'm working on 350, 400 & 450. There's no reward for higher scores. When I updated this app back in September or October, pop cap gave me free rare gems, lots of them, lasting a long time, making higher scores more frequent. When they ran out, if I want to keep using them, I had to pay--a lot, on an ongoing basis. Very clever of them, they must make a ton of money doing this. But there is something sleazy about exploiting people who are prone to addiction. It's getting to the point where I'm going to have to give it up because they started giving out rare gems almost every game & I just bought $20 worth a few hours ago, and it's charging me again. I'm sure I haven't played any more than usual so I think this is just more manipulation of addiction. Those who can afford to pay more than once a day will continue to be a gold mine for them. I need to leave it alone at this point. Great game, diabolical company. :-)
Addictive and annoying
by Tim Kloppenburg on 2013/04/14 19:01
I have been playing Bejeweled since my very first iPhone. Yes I love it! I now play bejeweled blitz almost every night! What I like is the faster pace if this version, most if the time I like the time limit of one minute. But what I hate about the game is you need to collect coins to get super powers. If you cannot win them you can always buy them (that is BS). Ok so you have enough coins, you spend the coins on a superpower (now scoring against the competition is skewed in you favor) you win at the top of the chart and then 2 days later the scores are reset! Basically if you bought the coins for the superpower and won, you just threw your money away! Like I said I play almost everyday. I just got over 200,000 without spending one coin. I've made it my goal to see how many coins I can earn. I will say that it is also annoying that the buttons to buy the superpowers are in the exact same place as the play button. I have accidentally spent a lot if coinage by pressing those stupid buttons, and once you press it, there is no way that I know of to cancel the superpower. You are stuck playing it.
Love It!!
by boo921 on 2016/04/06 13:52
The adds I get why you have them. I feel that after playing this game for many years that if you have reached a point in coins you might be kind in leaving, the adds, out of our gaming! I will never buy any of the adds from this form! I'm old schooled, I have earned my coins, this alone should be reason enough to leave us alone to continue enjoying this fun, relaxing, sometimes frustrating, mindless, awesome game! It's a go to, while standing in lines, driving down the road, as a passenger, Now that we can see the badges All is well! Just a fun mind less game, from my laptop to my IPod touch, an now on the iPad, and my 6s phone! As for buying coins I don't, I just play I don't buy any coins Never will, and have accumulated 27million of them. Yes I do use the power ups as the buy button this located just at play spot. This could be changed. I do agree with it would be nice to have a bonus of tokens somewhere after we get to gold. Love to play this game! I am one of many who has walked across The Great Wall of China playing Blitz!
Still a favorite!
by totalRAH on 2014/12/31 19:46
I've been playing this game for a couple of years now. I really like the Free Coins option where I can watch ads to get free coins, and I'm really enjoying the Daily Challenge for its coin awards and for the variations in game play. Unlike other reviewers, I've not experienced any glitches. Everything works fine for me. Like other reviewers, I think the coin rewards payouts for play are way too small in proportion to the cost of the special gems. I can win 1,000 coins, but most of the gems are 40,000 coins or more... 40 games just to earn enough to play 1 gem 1 time is frustrating when the gems make the play so much more fun. Now that I can earn gems and coins through Daily Challenge and ads, it's much better, but the Daily Spin seems to have been diminished.. I used to earn 50,000 about once a month, but have only hit it once in the past 6 months. I've never hit all emeralds or all rubies, and only once ever hit all sapphires, which was awesome. Aside from not being able to earn coins quickly enough to play often with the gems, I have no complaints.
Not crazy about it!
by See3PO on 2011/12/21 19:42
I normally play Blitz more times daily than I can count... Started on my iTouch when I first bought the app as part of Bejeweled. When I got my iPad (prior to this new version) I could play the one I was used to in the smaller mode on my iPad as opposed to full screen. Then,at first, I tried the new one and found myself immediately going back to the original app as I have real problems playing it on the full screen. I am glad I did not have to purchase this new one as I would have immediately asked for a refund!!! WHY did you not let those of us who were used to and loved the original app to be able to still use it as it was originally?!?!?!? You forced the original app I bought to be updated and/or converted to include the new Blitz app within it. That just plain stinks in my book!!! I feel you are morally obligated to return the original app that I and countless others bought and paid for to be returned to its original form. One can always use the new app to access the free spin... Also -- why can one no longer see the weekly scores on the graph and the other friendly competitive pluses that are non-existent in the new one?!?!? In my book, you tried but it was NOT a good plan. Steve Jobs would not have been happy with this change!
Update: Back to being mindless fun.
by 4genfl on 2016/03/29 13:43
Update: when last update occurred as with many mine failed to open. Considering my hoard of points this was mind blowing that I loose them if deleted as one agent stated I do to app. Thank goodness I sent another email. Next agt told me to wait for next update and should retain all points and gem collection. It did! My over 35 million points are safe. Oh, and once a week I take screen shots to prove point totals. I have over 35 million in gems and newest version crashes. They have had issues before and unless you can prove what you have and even then have to log on to Facebook to get anything back. After all these years better not loose my total or my accumulated gems!!! Had an email response to my inquiry and it is a to bad so sad on my points. As I don't login to Facebook nothing they can do. Wow, did not realize they were so lame in their programming. Again I have over 35 million points and just gone because they cannot do testing before they put out an update. I have no words, not even bad ones that can express my feelings.
I love this game but new version has issues
by Love4d2 on 2015/06/21 07:10
I love this game and love the daily challenges and the fact that they randomly give the bonus jewels I even play my personal friends on this game a lot but this is the second time in the last two weeks that it hasn't given me my winnings. Yesterday I used the new sea or trident jewel which was given as a free jewel... and at the end when u choose your jewel I chose the bottom corner and won the grand prize of 250k coins. Of course they did not give me my winnings. In fact I wasn't even credited for my game. It showed I won 1500 coins on top of the 250k but I didn't even get credit for that it was like I never even played the game. I occasionally buy coins for this game because I do like it so to win this much and not get them credited is upsetting. I tried to find a place to email or let tech support know and was put in an everlasting loop of faq's boards and no way of contacting support. Not happy and not sure if I will stay around too much longer if this doesn't get resolved it will be hard too because I have played this game from the beginning.
Awesome
by Mumof2gals on 2012/04/27 09:28
Such a time waster!! Bad bad bad thing to have on the iPad! I might need to go to Bejeweled anonymous!! This game is quick and fun and a great way to make time go by while waiting for something or another. It is addicting though and before you know it, one minute becomes 60! Edit April 27'12: the game is still fun and a few times I won a 25k, 50k and 100k jewel spin, whoohoo :) I play it everyday when I need to make time go by faster. Now and then the game can't log in, usually after an update, to FB. While I am ok with the occasional down time, it shouldn't happen each time an upgrade happens. It just doesn't look good on the developer part. So, while I am ok on/offline, I am removing one star for lack of checking or what not before releasing an update. I do have one request, can you make the abandon button not so close to the rare gem harvesting button? I realise that you want people to use the rare gem and make money from extra spins but it's a bit too easy to accidentally push - and there's no confirm button to use the rare gems, it just goes.
Favorite To Flop: Updates And Ads
by FallenStone15 on 2016/03/29 01:13
Have been playing game for years however, with the last several updates I've had to uninstall and then reinstall bc Blitz would NOT open at all! The most current update (March 2016), has now left my Blitz filled with ads after each time I play a round! NOT COOL, POPCAP! NOT COOL! I have over 50 Million coins and many special gems, I used the daily spin and the play for the daily special gem everyday. I am frustrated that after putting so much time, energy and an iTunes gift card into this app I am having to see so many ads! I watch the ads in the "free coins". I am certain other Blitzers would agree those ads are enough for people to watch! Even putting the ads on the main page and having "Progressive" sponsor coins is pushing the boundaries but that is so much better than the pop-ups!!! Fix the pop-up ads and the update difficulties (so I don't have to remove Colorfy-because Bejeweled wanted to open in that app-and reinstall Bejeweled Blitz again, then figure out how to reconnect Blitz through Facebook) and I will come back to review Blitz again. When the game is working correctly, it is very fun.
MOVE the BUTTON already
by Vivalasvegas2000 on 2012/12/08 00:46
UPDATE: Do not buy coins!! The special gem green button placement is a scam to burn your coins to get you to buy more. I have been playing this game for almost a year and there is a glitch where the game will pause or revert back to the old screen so you push the "buy a rare gem" green button rather than the "play" button. I think this is a purposeful scam because I have never "accidentally" purchased a cheaper gem. It only happens on the 75,000 coin gem. I do not think it is an accident! I have never bothered complaining on a review, but I think this is truly a scam and it aggravates me every time I feel ripped off. ORIGINAL POST: I love this game but refuse to give it more than one star until they MOVE the rare gem BUTTON. It takes too many games to earn coins just to have the game force you to use them because of their ridiculous placement of the button. I can't even let my kids play because they will always hit the big, green button and use my coins. And I refuse to pay for more coins since I feel swindled out of them every time I accidentally hit that button. Why cause such angst in your players who otherwise would be enjoying your game?? PLEASE fix this immediately!
Dumped it after 12 yrs of loyalty
by MonkeyBlue69 on 2014/06/27 15:11
I have played this game for over 12yrs. I have pd. for the app on several phones, have it on three pc's and now on my iPad. After this last update of blitz they are drowning my game with full page ads. I looked up the opt out and even if you DO choose that all it means is they will now send ads that do not pertain to your interests, but will drowned u with all kinds of ads so there is no way to stop it. I was in first place and had a lot of special gems saved not to mention all the time I spend playing this because it helps keep your mind quick also. I have removed the game for good after all these yrs. the last straw was this mornings pop ups started freezing my iPad and had to shut down and restart every time, enough is enough. Typical of big business, u have a good thing going and u throw everyone who made u right out the window. Good going Google. I bet people who spend a lot of money playing the game are not suffering with these pop ups. Just another way for them to weed out people who like the game for competition, meeting people and just fun. I am so done with on line live gaming. Leaves me more time on my other activities, good riddance.
My addiction has been cured by all the bad updates
by AnnB11261 on 2012/12/31 21:55
I've been addicted to this game for 2+ years. However, in trying to make the game "better", the last several updates have just made it so I don't even want to log in anymore. Starting from the top: 1) The game is taking longer and longer to load 2) It doesn't always recognize me/my friends, so I'm playing against a bunch of made up character names 3) When I've already taken my spin for the day I still have to go past this screen on subsequent plays of the day 4) If I'm lucky enough to finish a game without it crashing, the game crashes right at the end of the game and kicks me out. 5) I don't even bother purchasing any of the boosts, because when the game kicks me out, it doesn't remember that I have two more games left to play with those boosts. I'm spending less and less time with this game, and subsequently less an less likely to talk my Facebook friends into playing it, too. I did not upgrade to the new OS system because of all the bad news about it, but this shouldn't be the reason a perfectly good game has gone down the tubes.
Pop Cap Butterfly's Game Is Rigged For Certain Lose
by SLDdigital Photography on 2016/03/28 19:15
What is it with the creators of games these days that rig the games for certain lose. Butterfly's Bejeweled Game is one such a game. There isn't a China-mans chance in all the world a player can win at that game. When the player spots a move that can prevent the spider from catching the butterfly it doesn't matter - don't bother trying to save the move because the creators have programmed the game to disable the correction/save moves so the butterfly is going to be caught....and when the player has a butterfly almost caught the creators have made sure the player is out of moves that can prevent a end of game. They have rigged it so that a player will just never get ahead or win...ever...doesn't that kinda make you say to yourself "why bother"? You can play for weeks and you will not win so do yourself a favor and choose another game...one that is rewarding instead of one created by a bunch of sadits .
Getting tired of little reward
by Luvinmayberry on 2014/12/31 22:08
I have been a long time player, way before fb began. Now with having to purchase everything instead of earning it by accomplishment I've become aggravated. I REFUSE to spend money on a game, I may as well flush money down the toilet. Plus playing the game burns up my battery on my phone fast! It's very buggy and has gotten so bad that when Apple did diagnostics on my phone they found this app was the issue at amassing great amounts of bugs on my phone to the point I had to replace my phone. Ready to delete. I'm fast losing interest when the money earned comes way slower then anything you can spend it on for a gem. I don't believe that buying my way to getting top score is even in my top 10,000 things to do. Don't waste your money, it's all a money ploy to the creators. Find a better game that won't try to rip you off, occasionally steals 10s of 1000s of coins at a time, and after watching these stupid ads for free coins I've been stuck in an unending loop of commercials only to find out it banked the coins then took every last one back! Waste of time!!
Where are my coins????
by Family top chef on 2015/11/10 05:07
I love this game. Have been playing it for years. It's fun, addictive and I love the challenge and competition against my friends. My issue is that a few weeks ago my coins that I had worked hard to earn over a long period of time went from nearly 6,000,000 down to ZERO!!! How does that happen? I didn't spend them, I just opened the app and they were gone like I had never played. I restarted the app, restarted my phone thinking and hoping it was a glitch but it has been over 3 weeks and nothing has been restored. I have continued to play and rebuild my coins but those should be added to the coins I had already worked hard for. Someone should look into this issue and restore the coins that I had rightfully earned previously! Short of that I would have given the app 5 stars. Yes it glitches occasionally and freezes up and needs to be restarted but I don't know if anything technological that doesn't occasionally do this. Small irritate toon for a great game. I would just like my coins back.
I thought it was my phone...
by thunderboomerz on 2013/12/24 04:01
I am so relieved to see that the game is crap and not my phone. This used to be the only game I would play and i got good at it. I'm telling anyone that has the old version not to update if they dont have to. Each time you update it gets a little slower and finally it just opens to the home page and crashes. I've gone to the Pop cap website and tried everything they suggested, nothing works. I really miss this game but it is what it is...I'll keep looking and find something to take its place. I'm giving it a rate of 1 star now but if you can get it to not crash...its a definite 5 star game. FIXX please and find a way to let everyone know its been fixed! so i came back and bugs have been fixed. ILuv This game! There are so many copycat games that just dont measure up. give it a shot ur sure to get hooked. the color is sharper and so are the graphics. i'm back in love! Bugs r Gone.
It's gotten to be no fun. It's a joke
by Bobbijo1219 on 2014/12/17 13:47
You know it's sad that you can't even get the blue or red gems unless you spend money on this I don't have the money to spend I just try to have some fun with it The gems are are very expensive it's making the game not fun to play anymore . I'm finding out from family and friends that's why they don't play the game. That is too expensive is no fun I think it's fun. Months ago either give you a five star rating now that I've seen how it works. December 14, 2014 I give up playing candy crush because I thought this was a thunder game but it's just gotten cost many points to get to your jams and we only get five or 600 per game I don't have the money to pay for your jams but I've talk to friends that won't play the game because it for these reasons and sometimes when you update your update your app you lose all your points and that's not right i'm going got one from the blaze it now you don't play that much anymore because 75,000 by one gym or whatever you want to call it i'll give it another month or so or less to find a different game right now I won't ask people to play this game
Bejeweled Blitz
by Tygresspv on 2015/06/09 16:35
Although the game is improved some, I have to play on my IPAD MINI because my tremors won't allow me to play well with the usual computer mouse. This being said, I find it frustrating that I can't get all the same "perks" as I did on FaceBook, using the computer. I can't share I my daily spin score, or invite others to join etc. Now, we have these mandatory periodic "upgrades" which really don't improve the game as much as they aggravate with interruptions with annoying advertisements. The ads wouldn't be so annoying , but they interrupt in the middle of playing the game & when I X it out, it takes me to the App Store instead of back to my game! Another frustration is this new "Daily Challenge". It has not been explained what it is or how it works, or or how to play. I love. this game, but all these interruptions & unnecessary ads & so-called upgrades are my daily challenge!
Crashes when trying to load
by Boothacus on 2016/03/15 15:18
The game is really good and you can get addicted but the most recent update is very buggy. Coin/gem wins in daily challenge doesn't seem to apply even if you've won your score doesn't apply to your general high score. I used to be able to play iTunes in the background but now it cuts out and I've had to restart my phone a few times to when the whole game seems to get wonky with sound. There is also a delay after you finish a game that keeps you stuck before it lets you play again. I am assuming that it's so you can see all the great play combs/possibilities that just showed up on the board now that the game is over but since I'm trying to play again anyway no need to entice me and delays my actual playing again. Very annoying. The rare gems can be really pricy but all of these criticisms aside, it's a very addictive game. And I play it all the time. The 'add coin' by watching short ads is a great feature since they get to give you the game for free and sell advertising and you get to get coins without having ads pop up distracting you while you're trying to play.
Redundant play
by Rayman12321 on 2012/09/05 05:38
I feel like I have to play over and over and over again to earn so little coin each game in order to attempt to beat the higher score. I find myself just waiting and hoping I get a good spin and win coin rather than playing to earn it. The game seems to lead you to want to purchase coin but instead for me it just makes me not want to play. It's agonizing playing and playing to earn next to nothing compared one one good free spin that will get you more in a 12 hour span then actually playing for 12 hours. It's a fun game, when you have coins. Otherwise it's like farming for it. Then when you pay for a rare gem and just don't get a good run, all that time you spent earning or waiting for the coins goes to nothing. I'd have to say 3 stars just due to the game itself being entertaining. Not a 4 or 5 because the competition of the game relies solely on having enough coin.
Great game but......
by JBalls12345678910 on 2013/06/26 05:23
First, when you purchase a multiplier gem to start the game EVERY time it starts out in the bottom three rows on the outside of the grid. Why would this matter? We've already purchased the gem and you're handicapping it!? Not once in probably over 200 games did it start out at the top or even in the middle of the game. I love this game and have played Bejeweled since I was in my college dorm almost 10 years ago but there are certain nuances that I am not thrilled with since I started updating a few months ago. The daily spin or if spins are purchased there seem to be more low amounts, and the spinners land on them much more frequently, with every update. The high coin values of the fun special gems haven't budged but the payouts have. Maybe tier the spins with only 2 like gems so they aren't all 2500 which is terrible to land on. Or change up the payouts. There are a lot of low but only one really high maybe put some more in the middle.
Sorry I updated!
by Dot402 on 2014/07/12 00:04
Do not update...you loose everything! This version is not worth your time. I can no longer play with Facebook friends on my iPad. :-( bring back the old version! I would give it no stars if I could...robbers...wish I could get back time and money invested. Lawyers should be contacted. Support help is NO help! Here we go again. Does not even let me write my own review. Every time I update, I cannot play on my iPad, only on my phone. I know they can fix these problems because it was fixed before. Very frustrating . I agree with the person who started this review...you are ripping us off! Keep it up and you won't be #1 for long. I hope someone reads this....😢😢😢😢please HELP!!! Are you out there??? And now nothing but full page ads that I have no interest in and still crashes when it comes time to use my boosts for second game... Still a one star... Fix the game and you get five and not until! Please stop these full page ads. All they do is kick me out of my game. And whenever I buy boosts, I get kicked out before I can take advantage of them, resulting in loss of coins....
Getting worst with each release
by LDaudelin on 2012/07/26 21:31
Is it me or is this game getting worst with each release? Now, when the app is terminated because it's been in the background, when you come back and it reloads, it completely forget about your score or your friends' score. It doesn't' even remember you were connected through Facebook. So, you have to login again through Facebook (which is another prime example of a lame, slow application) and then when you come back in the app, it doesn't remember your last score! It doesn't even remember the score of your friends. Fortunately (or maybe by accident), when you play a game and come back after the game to the main menu, your previous highest score for the week is restored. But no score is showing for any of your friends. It is also very obvious that this app is just there in the App Store to make money. I don't have a problem with that but when it's becoming too obvious, I lose interest quickly. I think people are rating this app too quickly and way too high. It was a fine game a year ago but PopCap is completely destroying it.
WAS really addicting.....was.
by Photoracer1 on 2016/03/16 18:58
When I tried to open the app with the new, most recent update, I found it would simply fail to load and then quit altogether. Thinking it was something I must have done, I shut the phone off and turned it back on, thinking it was a glitch. Well, there is a glitch, but it isn't on my end! This 'update' is effectively ending this app's usefulness and enjoyment. I had this app for a few years and built up almost 9M tokens without ever buying any. Not only can I not access my tokens, but I can't play the game. Now, I fear I've lost all of them. If anyone within the company cares at all, fix the glitch, and make sure you restore everyone's tokens! This is a good faith suggestion I would HIGHLY recommend! I also have the Classic Bejewelled and it is unaffected, EXCEPT the Blitz that is contained within it. Same problem! Come on PopCap, get your act together and TEST your updates before wreaking havoc on your loyal customers. Just remember, there are other game companies out there that would love to have us play their games. Do the right thing and please fix this issue!
Inconsistent scoring & buying gems really costs
by SchmutzieCat on 2013/12/24 01:25
The game itself is fun and challenging BUT it is wildly inconsistent in how many points you can win in any given game (without buying any gems). One game you may win 300,000+ points and then not get over 25,000 or 50,000 points for the next 10 or more games, and you are making the same/similar combinations of matching jewels. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason behind the scoring, and nothing is written down in the rules to explain how points are earned. It is also very frustrating that one must generally spend between 10,000 and 75,000 coins to purchase a gem (depending on the gem), but the most coins one is likely to earn back playing with the purchased gem is far less than the purchase price (perhaps as much as 5,000 coins). This makes purchasing coins a losing proposition and not really worth it. The game would be much better if players had a chance to make back what they spend on a gem when they buy the gem.
Needs updates
by swiftcraze on 2011/12/17 04:48
The new graphics are pretty amazing for the retina display. The colors are crisp and vibrant. The gems are pretty cool. The casino style "spin for coins" was a nice touch as well. Before the update i was glued to this game. But since the upgrade to the separate Bejeweled Blitz, not so much. It's very slow. Like, incredibly slow! The movement on the game pieces is seriously delayed and to get a high score you absolutely need specialty gems. Which will cost you a lot of coins. Even though you get the free bonus spin for coins, it's now impossible to accumulate coins. It seriously takes for ever. In my opinion they did it so you would run out of coins quickly and have to pay for the coins instead of earn them during game if you wanted to play. The update also removed your personal stats. That was the worst part of the update I thought. I was addicted to getting all my star levels to lv 5 gold and competing vs my friends stats. In Essenes the game is pretty much horrendous now. Unless you update it, I won't be playing much anymore. But they already got my money so I guess they don't really care!!
Play with caution
by bridget330 on 2015/10/16 01:58
Let me begin by saying that I've played this game for years and enjoy playing it. However, Apple i-tunes robs you when buying coins. They offer a special but after you agree to purchase it for one price, they charge you full price. They also have a new thing if you play it on your computer. A pop up asks you to purchase coins in a slick little way that you just click yes to get it out of the way, until you realize that it just charged you money for coins. I've contacted the makers of the game and they referred me back to I-tunes. It is next to impossible to contact them for any reason. It seems to me that the maker of the game has responsibility to make sure that we are charged the correct amount without getting ripped off, but they play the innocent victim. I have been charged $65 for coins. "I know, I'm the crazy one because I continue to play." I don't think I should have to stop playing because they lack integrity. Anyway. Proceed with caution.
Bland
by wicked witch of the west on 2012/09/11 05:39
Just wanted to say, I'm a pretty careful consumer. I don't like to download updates until I read the reviews and make sure everything is working correctly. And in many cases, i'll simply forgo the update or delete the app altogether if the update reviews are less than favorable. Well, I read the reviews and waited and then downloaded anyway because I LOVE this game and it wouldn't allow me to play at all unless I updated-which in itself was pretty frustrating. I guess I'm lucky that I'm still able to play and the app doesn't crash, as I've seen in other reviews, but I'm highly disappointed that my score vs. my FB friends has been the same for the last 3 weeks. Granted, it is higher than theirs, but I kinda like competing on a week by week basis. This just isn't fun. And there's no telling what they see my score as being this week. I'm also disappointed that this hasn't been corrected, or even addressed on the FB page (so far as I've seen). Is this something I just have to get used to? Because it kinda feels like this game has lost all it's flavor as a result of the update.
Past Posters Plz Read!!!
by Heath.. on 2014/07/24 17:30
Ok so I hope that people who have posted in the past read this. I've seen a lot of complaints about accidentally buying rare gems when hitting the play button twice to play faster. I you hit it twice and accidentally bought a rare gem (which I have done as well) them you should see the page to buy other special gems as well before you actually play. All you have to do is hit the back arrow and go back to the main page and it will cancel the gem. Hope this helps! Ok now for my review. Like everyone has said, this game is very addictive (and annoying ;)) and fun. It links to Facebook and I've stopped playing it on the computer. I've found using this app easier. The only reason I only gave it 3 stars was because the latest update brought pop up ads in between games every so often. It didnt do this before and I'm hoping the low rating will get the attention of developers and try get rid of the ads.
Do not update.
by Joe_in_boston on 2012/06/11 00:20
Agree with reviewers who thought this game was better before when you could use one booster offline without the coin system. Now, the point system is a total scam because they require way too many coins for each booster, and come on, it is one minute of play time! You don't earn enough coins to play with boosters unless you are willing to pay for coins, so the only realistic option is to play without boosters. And you still have to click through several fields to circumvent all the boosters and gems and what not, in order to play again...another one minute game. Ridiculous. I also don't like that it's impossible to understand the scoring system. You have a sense of how good you're doing, but that correlates poorly with your final score, and it is impossible to develop a strategy short of go faster! So while this game is pretty fun on its own merits, the application producers have ruined it. My solution: erase from my iPad and avoid wasting time with an app that partly entertains me and partly irritates me.
Fun but be warned
by Kouth on 2013/04/21 19:49
This is a fun game, that can be very addicting. It is also fun to make goals for yourself in gaining coins. The problem with this game is that occasionally you are offered an option to spend many coins on a special game enhancement. The genius thing here is that when these people designed the game, they designed the 'ok' option perfectly, right above the 'no thanks' button. There has been many times when I have blown 50,000 coins against my will. Very frustrating and frankly I always feel like someone is stealing from me when it happens. The idea that they designed the 'ok' button right next to the 'no thanks' button in a way that causes people to accidentally click it. In turn, causing general players to go to the 'spin' section and spend more money on the game. It really should be fixed, but it hasn't been because they like tricking the public into more spending.
THIS GAME IS A RIP OFF
by Sbanhagel on 2015/10/18 04:09
Do not use this game!!!! Rips you off on coins you actually buy!! Not only that, they tell you that you get a discount on a new boost and it charges you full price!! It hit me for over $75. Ok I let it go the first two times and on the third try... I went to purchase additional coins because the spinner is an absolute JOKE!!! You will NEVER HIT THE BLUE DIAMONDS!!! Took another chance to buy coins and it did give me the correct amount. Didn't play again for almost a month and started seeing fraudulent charges on my credit card. They ripped me off $45 a week out under some credit check company. The last laugh was on them! Once the proper paperwork was filed and my bank took over, we changed 100% of my account information. New account numbers and credit card numbers were issued. They kept being greedy for their weekly $45 and finally got busted!! They were using credit card checks of all things to make it happen!!! If career criminals would use their intelligence for legal work, they would be considered the upper class in society!! What a shame!!!!
Curious
by LisaH123 on 2014/07/24 16:39
I have played this game for years. It's one of the only games I have played almost daily. I have completed every maximum level you can. I am Rank 182. Nothing left to challenge me there. However the keystones keep me playing... Unless.. The only keystones that pop up are to clear a bunch of gems. That's boring so I don't play as often. I only use coins to obtain a high score... After that it seems pointless to use any coins to obtain a keystone where the payoff is substantially less that the number of coins it would take to complete the task. The game used to have a chat feature where I could message my friends when we played. That disappeared. I think there should also be an option to share your current coins with a friend. There should be more keystones to complete for tokens... I do not need XP points.
Updated..kept crashing until...
by ~Kristy~ on 2016/03/19 00:51
When my phone did the auto update, needless to say, my game wouldn't open & kept crashing.. I had read other reviews & I, too, was afraid of losing all my coins & rare gems (which I have a ton of & have never spent a dime!) if I uninstalled & reinstalled this game..but after 3 days of not being able to play, or collect my daily spins, I decided to do it.. and it worked!! As soon as I logged into FB, my coin balance went back up to almost 5M & I got all my rare gems back! So, I am one happy camper..lol. I'm hooked on this game. I love it & I love the daily challenges & opportunities to collect the gems. Keep up the great game!, but in the future, please try to test out the updates before releasing it & thus causing unnecessary disappointment to your loyal fans/customers. Just a suggestion. Thanks for everything! 👍😊
Frustrating but addicting
by Mod011000 on 2013/03/21 02:39
Great game and wonderfully addicting! However, there two things that frustrates me to the point I'm going to delete the app and find something else to fulfill my boredom. The first thing is the Daily Spin has become less than amusing. I'm not winning anything over than 10k and that us not very often. Before I would earn more allowing to purchase different jewels. Now I have to play longer just to earn enough coins. The last and most frustrating of all is the placement of the offer to purchase the jewels. After my game is complete I have the option to play again or purchase a special jewel that will help me gain more coins. Well on at least 4 occasions when I've try to bypass the purchasing of the jewel and just play the next game, I end up purchasing the jewel which deducts coins from my earnings. Therefore I can't save enough coins to get the big jewel to purchase. Any suggestions for a nothing addicting game, but this time without the headaches...
Addicting, Beautiful, Heart-Pounding GamePlay
by Kurt Truk on 2013/04/09 22:23
I've played just about every version of Bejeweled and Bejeweled Blitz is my favorite. It's the best of the best in this style of game. Here are my suggestions and problems that need to be corrected before I'll go up to Five Stars, It's Great: As of the last two months gameplay has become sluggish. I'll be blazing along and then all of a sudden the game slows, my input is not recognized and on more than one occasion this has prevented me from hitting the coveted 1,000,000 point benchmark. So very frustrating when that happens. I'm sure you understand my frustration. This is an issue that has occurred only recently, within the last eight weeks or so. Something happened that caused this and needs to be addressed. So until then, user be ware. Make it easier to earn coins, please. A pull on the slot machine once a day and the few coins earned during gameplay are not enough to buy gems and upgrades. Because of this it is necessary to purchase coins to do so. It's great you have specials for certain gems and upgrades throughout the week and even a happy hour, but that's not enough. Level the playing field between those who can afford the coins and those who rely on gameplay to do so. It's just not fair. I look forward to future updates of this good game.
Additictive, Fun, but Occasionally Annoying
by Wyatt the Odd on 2014/03/06 01:28
This is not the app to use if you expect gemstones to shoot out of your iPhone. That doesn't happen here. Ever. For that, you'll need to download Magic Genie Lamp and rub vigorously. Please note that you must have also installed "Living in Fantasyland" into your wetware. Given that, who is this game for? Why, anyone who wants to kill a few minutes without the risk of "just one more level" during an executive meeting. Also, it's ideal for anyone with failed lapidary dreams. Why? Because, as the name says, you're blowing up precious gems. And, you've only got a minute before your horde is replaced by the top score screen. This is a game that seems to genuinely want you to rack up a massive score even if you don't use real money to buy the in-game coins. Each night, they give you a pull at the slot machine. And, the game will show you possible moves if you're stuck - it just won't show you the best move. The latest update seems to have geeked a couple of things. It keeps trying to open my phone's Game Center despite me disabling it. Also, after the trying the slot machine, you have to wait for the game to decide that you've read the message about when your next pull is available before it'll let you out. I've accidentally bought more "rare" gems because of this glitch than those I've bought on purpose.
Latest update killed the game on ipad 1.
by Annalizzie on 2015/01/18 06:59
I was forced to update this game on my original ipad (that I use primarily to play this game...or I used to). It would not let me delay the upgrade and it would not let me play without it. When I tried to update, it said I needed to first update my OS to 6.0 which the original ipad can't support. (The OS is as high as allowed on this ipad.) It then asked if I would like a lesser Blitz upgrade that my ipad could handle. Again, I had to say yes, could not play otherwise. Well, no matter, I can't play the game with the supposed "upgrade" either. I had over 2 million points that just disappeared. If I try to do anything, I am bounced out of the game. Please, let us slowpokes keep our old ipads and old versions of apps. This is annoying beyond belief, and why I usually don't "upgrade" games because they often come with all sorts of problems. A similar thing happened with a previous upgrade of Blitz, but that subsequently was fixed. Before this, it was a fun game that I played daily. BUMMER!
Awesome idea!!!!
by Candas Fields on 2012/03/07 22:06
Love this game!!! Dont enjoy the fact that sometimes when I get 50k I get 500 coins or sometimes get 200k and still get 500 coins......I know you can buy coins but not everyone wants to buy them all the time. And you should get more coins for getting 200k. So I think if you get 50k, you get 500 coins, 100k a 1000, 200k 2000 coins and so on. Even if you got a million, you would only get 10,000 points. Just get rid of the coins on the jewels, keep the "2X, 3X, etc" for additional points, that way we don't get bored playing all the time just to get to the "Phoenix prism". That's my favorite part of the game, is when I get that and add three more things in my boxes!!! Its rock and roll time when that happens!!! Please please please consider this!!! Oh and to confirm some stuff already mentioned......my Facebook check in is fine, and yes, the 500k medal doesnt get added...... Thanks
Not an improvement over previous version
by Sun Quest on 2013/02/22 05:37
Won't save settings when I turn off music volume and disable auto-renewal of boosts. If I completely exit out of bejeweled blitz so it is not running in the background, then the settings revert back to defaults. I uninstalled and reinstalled this version and that did not help. I don't like auto-renewal always defaulting to on. Please fix as this is annoying. Update: After playing new version since installing it yesterday I can honestly say I see it as being less favorable than I previously thought. It is SLOW! Very very slow. It went from the gems falling fast to me being able to say "click click click" as they drop. This is on my iPhone4. I was getting around 800k, and now the best I can get is around 500k. I will not be using any more coins or buying any spins to get coins until it is fixed. I am downgrading the rating to 1 star. Wish I could give it zero instead as this game is no longer fun to play due to the jerky dropping of the gems. I really wish I hadn't upgraded.
Please let older iPads play the previous version!
by Blitzless on 2015/01/24 03:37
I have been addicted to this game for years and built my coins up to nearly 10,000,000. Last week I was forced to try to upgrade to the newer version of Blitz. I didn't think my old iPad could support it, but figured if it couldn't I would still be able to play the older version that I came to love. When I tried to click on Blitz again I was given the option of " do not upgrade now". It just ejected me from the game. I tried several times with no satisfaction. I really would appreciate a fix that would let me click on the "not now" option and reload my old version and keep the coin bank. I don't need brighter gems I just need the old version since I'm not buying a new iPad just to play this game.
Bejeweled Blitz
by GameDweeber on 2013/06/09 01:19
I love this game so much, but I'm kind if tired o the constant bugs that it has. One, for example, is not opening right away. Also, it hasn't been saying my high score for the week. And I'm kind of ticked that, for whatever reason, I has 50,000 coins total after one round and then the next, I have about 13,000. I mean, what happened to all my coins? I didn't use them on anything. They just disappeared. Not looking at the bugs and my complains, I think that the game is overall pretty good. It keeps me entertained for hours in the car for long car trips, or just entertained around the house when I have nothing to do. It's a lot of fun to play with my friends as well. Like at a party, my friends and I can pass my iPod around, playing this, seeing who can get the highest score. All in all, it's a great game. But please, fix the bugs.
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.

by Fishing Creek on 2015/09/18 09:14
Still loving this game after all these years! Struggled for a LONG time to figure out the best way to play. This is what I've learned: Forget the points & concentrate on earning free coins. I play for long periods of time just earning free coins. Once I have about 8 or 900,000 coins, then I play for points by buying the most powerful boosts as many times as I can afford in order to be the 1st place player in my group. It's not so hard to accomplish that when I can buy as many boosts as I need. I stay in 1st place for the 6 day game period. After that I take more weeks to bring up the number of coins in my 'bank' so that I can buy the boosts I need to power myself back up to 1st place again. Even bringing myself up to 5th place is exciting. Since I have discovered this way to play, I'm enjoying Blitz more than I ever though possible 😄
What's up with this update!!!!????
by TommyG48 on 2015/11/12 14:14
Absolutely love playing this game. It's used up a lot of time while waiting for family at their appointments. Great game to play and enjoy many hours of playing this game ... However with every update they force on all of us this game became more n more unreliable. This last update just won't download n install and now all the close to two million coins are apparently lost n the game won't even open. I agree w Kris495 I believe who said it keeps returning to the download page. A frustrating loop that's driving me nuts. Either fix it or I'll find another developer to follow also n will tell ALL my friends about this company's failure to resolve issues for players who have been on this game for years. Accomplishments are all lost and there were A LOT.... Gone

Bonus Game and Daily Spin Are Not Randomized
by Disappointed5342689 on 2016/05/04 06:48
I love Bejeweled Blitz, but I have been playing this game for 5+ years, on almost a daily basis and have never, not once, spun the 1,000,000 coin jackpot spin. In addition, in any of the bonus games, after you play a round, where you choose one of the 9 items for extra coins, the top two prize amounts seem to ALWAYS elude me. In 5 years of playing, almost everyday, and choosing the same item, in the same place, 25+ games in a row, you think by now I would have chosen one of the top prizes if the game was randomized. I think you guys have become extremely money hungry and have disappointed your loyal fans!
A step too far with promotional advertising
by Devokent on 2016/05/04 05:23
Sorry to see the demise of what use to be an entertaining game. Too bad the game developers sold out to a corporation to actually infuse the game with an Insurance Company advertising characters. A step too far. Bye bye Bejeweled Blitz.
Will not open
by Sweet Lucky Charm on 2016/05/03 19:58
Will not open since the update.
Reset?
by Dakota4.7 on 2016/05/03 18:15
When you reset game and scores, how the heck does the same other people that's top of list retain their score or instantly get like 950,000 score? And I'm back to a big fat zero? I know that many people don't get high scores like that in 1 da__ second! :-@
Full of Ads and Traps
by MarioStar998 on 2016/05/03 15:19
This app has gone down the drain. Ads are popping up. You get "special gems" every time you press play. If you decide to restart your game, you'll get another "offer" of a "special gem." They place the buy button right over the play button, so if you are not careful, you will waste ALL of your coins pressing buy instead of play. They are using the classic trap of trying to make you spend REAL MONEY on In App Purchases. You waste all your coins so you feel the need to BUY some. Matching gems is harder too. I remember getting this app years ago. I was getting 500,000 points easily. Now I'm lucky if I can get 200,000. Again, they are making you BUY power-ups to get 500,000 points. If you don't have enough coins, no worry! We SELL some. Don't waste your time. This app is full of corporate tricks to make money.

Do not like that the game is taking my coins for the free gems I've been awarded. Other than that I like playing the game....but will think twice before buying coins
Boring Challenges
by Pnd48s on 2016/05/03 00:11
The daily challenge is now just a bunch of Letter P tiles, for Progressive Insurance. Can you bring back the true flowers and other little icons that are much cuter?
Daily challenge is broken
by BlitzBoy28 on 2016/05/02 20:02
Please fix. Game is fairly useless without the daily challenge.
Pop-ups Incessantly
by AKGriz01 on 2016/05/02 18:12
Fun game when I don't have too constantly click through pop-up ads. Progressive ads are the worst! Stop rigging the game to favor advertisers!!! Horrible!!!!
Daily Challenge!
by Paularkb on 2016/05/02 12:41
What is up with Progressive being the daily challenge everyday? It's getting really boring.
I dread updates on this thing
by beepbeepzipbang on 2016/05/02 12:38
I'm really stunned how every time I think they've gone as low as they can the new update comes and the bar drops. The whole game is now an ad for Progressive insurance. Goodbye fun different icons for holidays and seasons. It's all branded now. And maybe it's just me but I haven't been able to win a single game since the switch. Just plain terrible. I was down to playing the once a day free games and now it seems like it's not even worth bothering.
Annoying
by Doxie pap chi on 2016/05/02 04:40
This used to be fun but now it crashes all the time or it stalls during the daily challenge. It has also become a giant commercial for Progressive. I don't feel that it lets me progress and win gems anymore. I'm over it now.
SPAM ALERT
by Marcus4fan on 2016/05/02 02:35
I paid for the ad free version. Then along came an update. Now I get a commercial for a war game 24/7 after every game played. I'm hoping for a class action lawsuit to get my $ back. This is ridiculous.
Blitz
by Moronixidiot5544363 on 2016/05/01 20:41
It opens for me but as soon as it opens it flips off. Just started doing that . Have been plAying it
Language problem
by Wanna be snowwhite on 2016/05/01 18:54
Not quite sure what is causing my problem but requests for all games are coming in French on Facebook. Very annoying. Anyone else have this problem?
Crappy
by MamaNanu on 2016/05/01 14:46
Game used to be a lot of fun until the last update. Now my points aren't being calculated and I CAN'T ACCESS THE DAILY CHALLENGE!!!!! Nothing happens when you click the button. I will delete the game if there isn't a fix soon. No sense of it taking up space.
Daily challenge not workinv
by Kkh9 on 2016/05/01 13:29
Ever since the last update the daily challenge link/button hasn't worked. Please fix
Awesome

Bejeweled Blitz
by Spelabee on 2016/05/01 02:56
I discovered this game many yrs ago and I'm still LOVIN IT!!!Such a Great GAME.....PBey
Ruined
by ultraclay! on 2016/04/30 21:54
I've been hooked on this game for years, so I guess I should be thankful that the bloated updates have made it so unplayable that I'm kicking the habit. Between the minute long download at startup, the ads between games and the pop ups sneakily timed to make you press purchase when you want to start a new game, I now play far less than I ever have before. So, thanks?
Bejeweled "Truly A Blitz"
by Kac4385 on 2016/04/30 21:45
Offered a free "chromostone" I accepted & it did not appear.....not the first time I have been offered a boost & not received it! I feel helpless, do not want to play your game when this happens.
Progressive thievery
by GOT247 on 2016/04/30 17:54
Having Progressive sponsor your daily game is fine for you, but now we cant even win in the first level. I had already stopped playing the blitz weekly games. It's just no fun. I cant stand Flo anyway Why do you mess with things that weren't broken?
Daily challenge
by Cheryl7891 on 2016/04/30 17:32
Since I upgraded I am unable to use the daily challenge on my mobile app
Ms
by Sulushus on 2016/04/30 17:26
After upgrading, the app won't even open. I think an fix is in order.
It crashes
by Mchick888888 on 2016/04/30 13:02
All. The. Time. And what else matters if the app can't stay open without crashing and closing?
Please Fix
by SPECIALNEEDSMAMA on 2016/04/29 21:26
After the last update I can't play the bonus plays anymore. Please fix this.
Never again!!!
by Mana0612 on 2016/04/29 20:23
I had over 25-30 rare gems saved up and then all of the sudden they are all gone. After repeated emails requesting assistance PopCap customer service had me going through hoops to get them a user ID number. Then I was advised I had an inactive account. I won't be playing this game or any other PoCap games!!!
Paying for ads
by Julius Fever on 2016/04/29 20:07
The ads are out of control. All of the forced ad clicks are prompting me to leave this review and delete the app. I paid for this app and was a daily user, but the greedy pushiness of their advertisements is no longer bearable.
Frustrated
by Doodles2x on 2016/04/29 18:12
OK so you get the bugs out yay. But now you're just running a bunch of insurance ads,which is annoying. Guess I'll wait to play until you're done with the annoying ads.
Maximum Level Reached
by Froglegs55 on 2016/04/29 17:21
I have reached the Max level! Please add more levels. I'm totally addicted!
Fun game, too many ads
by BonzoTheOriginal on 2016/04/29 17:02
I've enjoyed this game on several IOS devices. It's always been fun. Lately, they have added commercials to stop the play and annoy the player. I realize that it is a way to keep the game going. But it's very annoying to have to wait to skip a video on a product I don't care about. You get in a roll and a Toyota commercial breaks in. Come on. Stop with the videos between every game. I almost want to delete it from my device.
Pop up ads on every screen
by Btalbott1969 on 2016/04/29 09:30
Once was a 5 star game now I hardly play as its a constant barrage of pop up advertising. My friends have all deleted the game for this reason and I have no one playing to compete with when once I had 25. 2 million plus coins so I have been playing awhile and I hate to leave but the developers have taken all the reasons to stay away. It's become a advertising agency not a game.
Good game, but...
by ohnoyoudidnt! on 2016/04/29 05:24
4/28 Update: Demoted to 2 stars for giving me an ad as a gem reward. Lame. 4/16 Update: The daily challenges were much more creative, challenging, and fun before y'all started pimping car insurance. I used to look forward to what y'all were going to come up with, now it's just the same old thing over and over, with a different title. I understand y'all need to pay the bills, but did the deal kill your creative spirit? UPDATE: rating changed to 5 stars for addressing the issue below. thank you!!! :) what's up with forcing me to log in through Facebook to earn Daily Challenge rewards?? I paid the coins to play, the earned reward should be given regardless. I do not have, nor want, a Facebook account, and feel that it is highly unfair to force people to make or use one to experience the full game. I would (gladly) rather pay for the app to have access to all features without Facebook. Review will change to 5 stars once this discrimination issue is addressed.
Couldn't Tell You If I Wanted To
by Swtsnshyn on 2016/04/29 03:32
Ever since the update, I can't play the Daily Challenge because it won't open. Now we are almost into May and the Daily Challenge button still is not working!!!
Disappointed, please update
by Renluv on 2016/04/29 00:40
Every update screws up some portion of this game. I love the daily special and haven't been able to play it in weeks. Please fix so I may play the special dailies!
Fix It
by Melp462 on 2016/04/28 23:11
Please fix the daily challenge!!! Blitz is no fun without the daily challenge! If it's not fixed there's no point in playing.
Help
by Hommiethedog on 2016/04/28 22:40
Usually a five star, but every once in a while til take everything away. Had four million points but now everything's gone and it wants me to start over
Ugh!!!
by Dee Huckstep on 2016/04/28 20:26
I have been playing this game for a long time and this last update is horrible!! The challenge won't load, the gems won't download completely!! I am going to have to find a different game!!
Bout to quit for good
by Jerzree on 2016/04/28 16:49
I used to love this game but now it cheats and doesn't give you all the coins you earned during game play using the special jewels. It's ripped me off at least 4x recently. And now it has tons of ad interruptions that were never an issue before. 😑👎🏾 Disappointed
Still addicted....
by Sheabird's on 2016/04/28 14:42
.....after all these years. Even more addicting and fun on an iPhone 6s +! Wondering why the daily challenge isn't what it says it is, eg., challenge says rocket blast but it's actually a Progressive insurance thing, not the rocket blast?
Not Happy With Update
by KHlee_12 on 2016/04/28 03:02
I'm not happy with the latest update. The "update" resulted in my inability to continue playing the game because the "update" wouldn't installed. Now I've got an app on my screen that won't go open or disappear when I try deleting it.
Game cheats
by Susen5670 on 2016/04/28 00:51
I had a score of 460,000 and it knocked me down to number 11 to someone who had a score of 380,000 what is up with that and then it does not give you the points you achieve while playing the game also does not give you the time that it is suppose to also it steals one of my swap boosts. Yes it does cheat you of score and points and does not matter what you achieve it only keeps you low and does not give you your true achieved score or points cheaters and rip off what's up with this game reboot this game some screwed up on game brain ,,,,,why does this review constantly come up do you even read these reviews. Do something about it or I will go public with this game and let everyononeknow not to play. A big rip off and cheaters I will finish my coins and points and then I am out of here

New version has a bug with the Daily Challenge. I tap on the button, but nothing happens. Please fix this!
Daily challenge does not work on my iPhone 6 after latest update
by Ljp52 on 2016/04/27 10:22
Please hurry up and fix the problem.
Great Game BUT..
by Raydollabillz on 2016/04/26 20:57
The daily challenge has stopped working as many have said! It doesn't cost me money to play, so I don't consider anything in this game a ripoff, but the daily challenges made the game 2x more fun! Please fix I keep tapping it and nothing happens. Otherwise 10/10
I'm done
by Stangfireman on 2016/04/26 15:42
After the latest update, can't get daily spin to work. Obviously it's been an issue for a while after reading the reviews. And they don't seem to care to fix it. Tired of wasting my time with this game.
Not loading
by Watiche on 2016/04/26 07:51
Every since I updated the will not load! I will appreciate if this is corrected, Thank you. I hate the newest updated app. Want the old back. I going to stop playing if this situation is not corrected!!!
March 15 update
by Honeybrat on 2016/04/26 03:21
Am very disappointed with the Mar. 15 update like others, I finally had to delete the game. Lost over 300,000 points and my game levels. I would be a little happier if you would reinstate at least my points on the new installed game. Thanks, Honeybrat Also I am not getting any new games to play. Just same old Basic games. What has happened?????
Constant download
by Still needs work on 2016/04/26 02:33
Hard to play when it is constantly downloading
What gives?
by Bluebird3712345 on 2016/04/26 02:32
I'm so sad the daily challenge button is broken. I only have a few games in my phone and am a loyal jewels fan. Bring back my game. I shake my head and wonder why. What gives? Is this not the USA? Can you not send things through qa testing before updating?
Fix Dailey Challenge
by Appsuxair on 2016/04/26 02:23
Your last update ruined the Dailey challenge. This is horrible
Updates keep crashing
by Aldopop on 2016/04/26 01:29
Another bad update Really!!! Now it's impossible to open daily spins which is a big part of the game & Data charges being splash ed across the screen are competing with massive amounts of ads Just about done with this app for good !! Gonna lose a lot of people cause you guys aren't listening......
Irreparably busted
by Rhymes with carbon on 2016/04/26 01:12
One of my most used apps for years is irreparably busted. The daily challenge hardly ever downloaded, and now hilariously, trying to log in using Facebook opens TuneIn radio! Why on earth is it doing that? Forget it PopCap, try again.
Awful
by Jules.5280 on 2016/04/25 21:45
So sick of the glitches.. Now the Daily Bonus feature doesn't work. Hit button & nothing happens. Tried removing app & reloading, now I can't even login!,, this is RIDICULOUS!! I needed a reason to stop blowing money on this app.. Thank you for doing a great job of convincing me. I'm done.
3/14/2016 update killed the app.
by o1d_dude on 2016/04/25 18:50
Now the app opens to a broken graphics screen and immediately crashes to desktop. Not happy. Will be even unhappier if my winnings are lost. Update: After finally coming back on line, the game has now tightened up the winnings through raised qualifying limits, multi-colored exploders that only can be triggered by one color, reduction in corner bonus jewels, and some other devious tricks. Me? I'm done with this time sink. My 3,000,000 will sit and digitally rot.
Crashes with update
by Baseballhunter on 2016/04/25 14:01
Waaaayyyy to many ads It crashed when I updated so I deleted and reinstalled. I try to login with Facebook and it opens up some recipe app. I know you improved the game but I didn't expect to have to dodge exploding grill cheese sandwiches, or dodging and hotdog missiles
Seriously??
by Deuce17 on 2016/04/25 08:09
Every time a new update comes out the daily challenge stops working. Either fix the problem or stop updating the game. Why does this keep happening over and over with each update? Seriously it's really annoying!!!
Please Update
by ducky1169 on 2016/04/25 04:35
This worked well until the iOS 8. Please update!!
Not happy

When playing gem and you finish it you never pick the 100.000 coins NEVER
Fix this app
by Kirsten40 on 2016/04/24 16:40
You have some serious issues with this app. First I couldn't do the daily challenge, I'd click it and nothing would happen. I deleted the app then reinstalled it. When trying to reconnect it with my Facebook it kept opening my TuneIn radio app. I had to delete my TuneIn app in order to get Bejeweled Blitz to connect with Facebook. Please fix these issues.
Blitz has stopped working
by Rena127 on 2016/04/24 15:12
I was the top player of my friends and two weeks ago now, Blitz stopped working. When I try to log in, it will only open in Tune-In Radio which takes me to Blitz music stations. That's crazy. I thought it would be working again by now. Rebooting my iPhone does not help. What to do?
Need to add more goals and levels
by Crazybutt44 on 2016/04/24 15:07
I wish you would add more goals and levels. I don't play much anymore since maxing everything out. It has kinda taken the fun out of it. There is no goal to try to obtain. Beating my friends is to easy. I hope you do this in a future update.
Bejeweled
by Deryn57 on 2016/04/24 11:00
This WAS a great game! Last update screwed it up! I can no longer get logged in. Keep getting sent to a radio site!?! Please fix this. I miss my favorite game and challenging my family members.
Daily challenge
by Fohoness on 2016/04/24 08:18
The daily challenge doesn't work anymore and ads are out of control. If you have limited data, don't play the game, cause it does video ads a lot.
Reduced my rating
by BrennyO on 2016/04/24 08:16
Ever since the last update on iOS the link for the daily challenge has been dead. No matter how much you click it nothing happens. Fix it and I'll fix my rating... After several days of this not being fixed I'm lowering my rating again. So many people have complained about this with no fix. Got fixed finally only to have the same problem after latest update. Let's learn from our mistakes yes?
Used to enjoy playing against FB friends
by valerama on 2016/04/24 04:14
Now the program wants to force me to connect to living social... And I didn't want to give it those permissions, so it won't connect. I'll hope it gets fixed on the next edition, otherwise it's just one more app that gets deleted.
Disapprove
by jm691958 on 2016/04/24 02:52
Do not like the fact that I cannot play the challenges. Also disapprove the fact me and a friend can't work together to receive awards or the accomplishments where you get rewards. Even the fact you can not collect what ur friends send you. I play a lot on my iPad and can't do any of these on it. Try to fix this. Was able to play the challenges until three days ago.. Otherwise would rate it 6 stars. But now 1 if I want to be generous. Why can you not put party mode on iPad?
Latest version won't play daily challenge on iOS
by Adjia on 2016/04/24 02:06
The latest version won't play daily challenge
What's with the adds?!
by Ed man34 on 2016/04/23 19:41
I payed for this game to play the game not be besieged with add after add😡 What a bunch of crap! Once again a company takes something so simple and just completely jacks it up. Will probably be deleting this forever. Thanks ruining one of the games I've had on my phone from day one. I wish I could give it 0 stars.
TOO MANY ADS
by rjhoag on 2016/04/23 17:47
I chose the paid version of this game so I didn't get all the ads, yet with each update it seems there are more and more ads! I am at a point now that I may delete this game just to avoid all the unwanted pop up ads!
Crashing
by Sneakypeekaboo28 on 2016/04/23 17:16
Can't open the app at all. Keeps crashing
Help
by Larrybob on 2016/04/23 17:15
When I log in to Facebook on my iPhone it launches tunein radio app. Why? Please fix. And what is up with all the ads here lately. I'm very close to deleting this game. I've played for years and enjoy it but it's getting to be more of a headache every day.
Update not very good
by Lanoyi on 2016/04/23 17:01
First I lost my five million coins, had to start from scratch again and have not hit a high number of coins in the daily free spin. Also the Daily Challenge button doesn't work. This game was fine and now it's not.
Another flawed update
by YankNY44 on 2016/04/23 16:49
This is the second update in a row that hasn't worked!! The daily challenge button hasn't worked for days! I'm about ready to just delete the app!
Daily challenge still isn't working

Haven't been able to load the Daily Challenge for days! When is the fix coming???
No Daily Challenge
by Ol' Texas Rocker on 2016/04/23 13:03
Since the latest update the daily challenge button does nothing! Will not open.
Ambush advertising warning!!!
by SaraKateinDixieLand on 2016/04/23 12:31
I have had this game for years and loved it, however over the last year the ambush advertising has become too much to handle. I will not buy a PopCap game ever again in the future. The pop-up video ads are just too much and you are not allowed to opt immediately out, not to mention the advertising that has such a tiny close button you always clink into the advertising pit of hell. Grow up PopCap! You made a great game horrible just by selling your soul to the advertising devil.
Can't log into Facebook
by E4369 on 2016/04/23 11:42
Taking me to Shop Your Way? Love that app, but how can I log into Facebook if blitz keeps taking me to the wrong app? Tried to file a help request and there's no such ability? So, how am I supposed to play?
Crashes
by MollyVilla on 2016/04/23 03:56
Second to last update, app crashed on loading. They fixed it after quite some time. Now, after another update, daily challenge stopped working. =(
Everything is gone!!
by npbarr2 on 2016/04/23 03:51
The most recent update has caused me to lose everything. Almost 3,000,000 coins, high ranks, spins, everything is gone!!!! It will not connect to Facebook. Every time I click to log in, it takes me to Kmart!!!!!!!! What is that about!
App won't open
by MomoftwinsMN on 2016/04/23 01:53
Upgraded the app and since then it will not open on my iPad.
Daily challenge
by Dahg.. on 2016/04/22 22:08
Since the last update I can no longer play the daily challenge. Very frustrated!
Things Have Gotten Worse
by Skyhookoriginal on 2016/04/22 20:58
Ever since the last couple updates, nothing works right! No refresh on page, daily challenge doesn't work & other players scores don't show any longer. I used to love this game, but not so much lately.
Ugg
by Anklejouster on 2016/04/22 17:33
Ever since the forced update it doesn't allow me to play the Daily Challenge. Never had a problem before the update...
:(
by Mprater75 on 2016/04/22 13:24
I usually love this app, but it hasn't worked right since the last update.
Daily challenge issue
by I❤️Michael on 2016/04/22 01:17
Tap items and it will tell you new content to download. Once it loads you can play the challenge.
Don't bother
by CeCe1029 on 2016/04/21 23:42
Seems some didn't test their latest update before pushing it out to unsuspecting customers.
Won't load since update
by Shikatz on 2016/04/21 23:32
Love my Bejeweled, but can't play the daily challenge for over a week now. Maybe the last update???
ADDICTIVE

I love playing this game and enjoy all of the perks one can receive!
Xxxx
by Dmrob1979 on 2016/04/21 21:21
Another update...Another crash!!! Won't allow me to play the daily challenge.
I'VE HAD ENOUGH OF THE PROBLEMS!!!
by Kbritchie on 2016/04/21 21:21
Seems like updates should improve the the game, but with each update, a new problem develops. I've lost over 1,000,000 coins on a recent update, and now I cannot play the daily challenge. I'm deleting the game!!!
Updates are crap!
by leroylink on 2016/04/21 21:03
As of late, every update that Popcap puts out for Bejeweled Blitz is faulty. The past three or four that have been released have made it impossible to open the daily challenges or crash in general when loading.
Problem for years
by Daveed9425 on 2016/04/21 19:21
Daily challenges not downloading, saying that I need to be patient. When they do download the link doesn't work. This has been a problem ever since I downloaded the game a few years ago.
👎🏻
by Saver83 on 2016/04/21 18:01
Haven't been able to play the daily challenge in about a week now. You tap on the button and nothing happens. This is the 2nd update recently that has screwed up the whole game.
Ok
by JaySuong on 2016/04/21 14:13
This game is fun but freezes a lot.
Daily Challenge?
by MasonSaint on 2016/04/21 12:30
And yet another crappy update. Daily challenge is impossible to play. Press the button and nothing happens. Do you not have a test team? so yesterday I was going to update my review to say the problem was fixed but today the problem is back, can't play the daily challenge. When will it be fixed?
Nothing but Adware now.
by Jtmuthafukka on 2016/04/21 07:11
This game used to be cool but now it has turned into one big ad and a waste of my time. Used to love it but they shot themselves in the foot by adding all those stupid ads! Why??? I'm going to delete this commercial advertisement of a game.
Poor updates
by UPN2015 on 2016/04/20 23:59
Another update that doesn't work! Find another game! Save the aggravation!
Bejeweled blitz is fun!
by Bejeweled Leslie on 2014/06/20 05:05
This first paragraph is my most recent review...I changed the rating from a 4 to a 3 because of all the trouble with daily spins. Not only is it always such a low amount, sometimes it doesn't even work! This prevents you from gaining more coins for spinning up to 7 days in a row. Also I find it ironic that when the coins are 50% off on Fridays, I can't even buy them because I get this asinine message that says"loading the store. please stand by while we stock our shelves" LOL!! Then after 11pm when the coins are back to full price, I can magically access the store to buy coins!! But guess what?!?! I'm not going to buy them anymore. This game bores me with all the bugs. Please fix it. I love that you can get the streaks on rare gems and that you can see your stats too ( just like on a PC). However you can't connect to Facebook and play on an iPad (you have to use the app). Therefore, if you want to buy coins you have to get them through the iTunes store, you can't share spin winnings or check your messages like you can on Facebook. The graphics and loading speed are great, but the technical difficulties I'm having with making an in-app purchase is really annoying me right now. I would like to see the Bejeweled app be able to do all of the things that playing the game on Facebook does.
Great Pick-up 'n' Play Puzzle Gameplay
by DTx21 on 2015/01/03 05:17
A lot of Puzzle games like this require the player to rely heavily upon being incredibly pensive and reflecting deeply upon his or her move options and thinking ahead and strategizing, and only moving quickly once those conditions have been met. Not so with this game! It still requires the player to be observant and to think 2 or 3 seconds ahead, but mostly it demands him/her to have quick reflexes and resolute persistence. It's all about jumping in, making as many great matches as you can in a minute, and hoping you got a great score in the process. (Or at least that's how I play.) You don't need to worry about digging yourself into deep pit or painting yourself into a corner—the game will always drop the right colored gems to enable you to make at least one new move, so keep making those matches without fear for running out of moves. It has enough bells and whistles to enhance the longevity of the replay value. I totally recommend this game for Puzzle gamers who desire for a change of pace something faster and more simplistic yet still appropriately challenging in its own ways. My Rating: 9/10
Ahhhh, Much Better!
by Musigal5301 on 2016/03/22 12:31
March 18th update has fixed the bug that had rendered the game useless. We can play the game again. Thanks for listening!! ***UPDATE #2*** After reading that some had lost their stored gems, decided to check it out. All my stored gems were there. After being on that screen for a moment, though, got a pop-up telling me new content had been downloaded and was needing to be loaded. Pressed the button to load the new content and voilà, the game is now operating as it should...including the Daily Challenge. I never had an issue signing in with Facebook. I'm giving this only 4 stars because, while everything is back up and running, PopCap could do a better job explaining how to get their updates to actually function. It appears that there is more to it than just running the update feature. ***UPDATE #1*** I apparently spoke too soon. While it is true that we CAN play the game again, we can no longer play the daily challenge (Daily Spin works fine, though). Like others have stated, you can press the "Play Daily Challenge" button, but it does nothing...keeps you on the main screen. Taking my stars down to three for now.
READ THIS
by Remi The Master on 2012/05/22 07:12
Ok so I love this game and I wanted to start a new round really fast so I just double tap but then instead of the play button popping up, the rare gem pops up:( I bought it on accident with the free 50,000 coins for signing up.I backed out then turned off my iPod and turned it back on hoping it wouldn't save me buying it but then when I go back to the app, my coins are gone but the rare gem isn't their anymore. You guys should put the rare gems in the shop because when we want to buy it, we will buy it and when we don't want to buy it, we don't buy it. Popcap I bet that you guys won't read this message because it's just one person but if you wont put my money back, can you at least give me what I bought on accident. Oh and an idea to make people want to but the rare gems is to make them permanent in a casual mode that stops when their are no more moves. I would actually buy those gems if you guys made them permanent. So to sum it up, fix my problem, make a casual game mode, and make rare gems permanent. You guys should make more rare gems and make them cheaper of they are going to be a one time use. I hope you guys listen to me!
Pros & cons
by jaw443 on 2012/03/11 06:31
Addicting fun app, well done, but for a long time, there is a glitch where scores over 500 don't count toward a gold medal, it's stuck on 8/10. So I find myself trying to slow down to avoid going over 500 because I'm working on 350, 400 & 450. There's no reward for higher scores. When I updated this app back in September or October, pop cap gave me free rare gems, lots of them, lasting a long time, making higher scores more frequent. When they ran out, if I want to keep using them, I had to pay--a lot, on an ongoing basis. Very clever of them, they must make a ton of money doing this. But there is something sleazy about exploiting people who are prone to addiction. It's getting to the point where I'm going to have to give it up because they started giving out rare gems almost every game & I just bought $20 worth a few hours ago, and it's charging me again. I'm sure I haven't played any more than usual so I think this is just more manipulation of addiction. Those who can afford to pay more than once a day will continue to be a gold mine for them. I need to leave it alone at this point. Great game, diabolical company. :-)
Addictive and annoying
by Tim Kloppenburg on 2013/04/14 19:01
I have been playing Bejeweled since my very first iPhone. Yes I love it! I now play bejeweled blitz almost every night! What I like is the faster pace if this version, most if the time I like the time limit of one minute. But what I hate about the game is you need to collect coins to get super powers. If you cannot win them you can always buy them (that is BS). Ok so you have enough coins, you spend the coins on a superpower (now scoring against the competition is skewed in you favor) you win at the top of the chart and then 2 days later the scores are reset! Basically if you bought the coins for the superpower and won, you just threw your money away! Like I said I play almost everyday. I just got over 200,000 without spending one coin. I've made it my goal to see how many coins I can earn. I will say that it is also annoying that the buttons to buy the superpowers are in the exact same place as the play button. I have accidentally spent a lot if coinage by pressing those stupid buttons, and once you press it, there is no way that I know of to cancel the superpower. You are stuck playing it.
Love It!!
by boo921 on 2016/04/06 13:52
The adds I get why you have them. I feel that after playing this game for many years that if you have reached a point in coins you might be kind in leaving, the adds, out of our gaming! I will never buy any of the adds from this form! I'm old schooled, I have earned my coins, this alone should be reason enough to leave us alone to continue enjoying this fun, relaxing, sometimes frustrating, mindless, awesome game! It's a go to, while standing in lines, driving down the road, as a passenger, Now that we can see the badges All is well! Just a fun mind less game, from my laptop to my IPod touch, an now on the iPad, and my 6s phone! As for buying coins I don't, I just play I don't buy any coins Never will, and have accumulated 27million of them. Yes I do use the power ups as the buy button this located just at play spot. This could be changed. I do agree with it would be nice to have a bonus of tokens somewhere after we get to gold. Love to play this game! I am one of many who has walked across The Great Wall of China playing Blitz!
Still a favorite!
by totalRAH on 2014/12/31 19:46
I've been playing this game for a couple of years now. I really like the Free Coins option where I can watch ads to get free coins, and I'm really enjoying the Daily Challenge for its coin awards and for the variations in game play. Unlike other reviewers, I've not experienced any glitches. Everything works fine for me. Like other reviewers, I think the coin rewards payouts for play are way too small in proportion to the cost of the special gems. I can win 1,000 coins, but most of the gems are 40,000 coins or more... 40 games just to earn enough to play 1 gem 1 time is frustrating when the gems make the play so much more fun. Now that I can earn gems and coins through Daily Challenge and ads, it's much better, but the Daily Spin seems to have been diminished.. I used to earn 50,000 about once a month, but have only hit it once in the past 6 months. I've never hit all emeralds or all rubies, and only once ever hit all sapphires, which was awesome. Aside from not being able to earn coins quickly enough to play often with the gems, I have no complaints.
Not crazy about it!
by See3PO on 2011/12/21 19:42
I normally play Blitz more times daily than I can count... Started on my iTouch when I first bought the app as part of Bejeweled. When I got my iPad (prior to this new version) I could play the one I was used to in the smaller mode on my iPad as opposed to full screen. Then,at first, I tried the new one and found myself immediately going back to the original app as I have real problems playing it on the full screen. I am glad I did not have to purchase this new one as I would have immediately asked for a refund!!! WHY did you not let those of us who were used to and loved the original app to be able to still use it as it was originally?!?!?!? You forced the original app I bought to be updated and/or converted to include the new Blitz app within it. That just plain stinks in my book!!! I feel you are morally obligated to return the original app that I and countless others bought and paid for to be returned to its original form. One can always use the new app to access the free spin... Also -- why can one no longer see the weekly scores on the graph and the other friendly competitive pluses that are non-existent in the new one?!?!? In my book, you tried but it was NOT a good plan. Steve Jobs would not have been happy with this change!
Update: Back to being mindless fun.
by 4genfl on 2016/03/29 13:43
Update: when last update occurred as with many mine failed to open. Considering my hoard of points this was mind blowing that I loose them if deleted as one agent stated I do to app. Thank goodness I sent another email. Next agt told me to wait for next update and should retain all points and gem collection. It did! My over 35 million points are safe. Oh, and once a week I take screen shots to prove point totals. I have over 35 million in gems and newest version crashes. They have had issues before and unless you can prove what you have and even then have to log on to Facebook to get anything back. After all these years better not loose my total or my accumulated gems!!! Had an email response to my inquiry and it is a to bad so sad on my points. As I don't login to Facebook nothing they can do. Wow, did not realize they were so lame in their programming. Again I have over 35 million points and just gone because they cannot do testing before they put out an update. I have no words, not even bad ones that can express my feelings.
I love this game but new version has issues
by Love4d2 on 2015/06/21 07:10
I love this game and love the daily challenges and the fact that they randomly give the bonus jewels I even play my personal friends on this game a lot but this is the second time in the last two weeks that it hasn't given me my winnings. Yesterday I used the new sea or trident jewel which was given as a free jewel... and at the end when u choose your jewel I chose the bottom corner and won the grand prize of 250k coins. Of course they did not give me my winnings. In fact I wasn't even credited for my game. It showed I won 1500 coins on top of the 250k but I didn't even get credit for that it was like I never even played the game. I occasionally buy coins for this game because I do like it so to win this much and not get them credited is upsetting. I tried to find a place to email or let tech support know and was put in an everlasting loop of faq's boards and no way of contacting support. Not happy and not sure if I will stay around too much longer if this doesn't get resolved it will be hard too because I have played this game from the beginning.
Awesome
by Mumof2gals on 2012/04/27 09:28
Such a time waster!! Bad bad bad thing to have on the iPad! I might need to go to Bejeweled anonymous!! This game is quick and fun and a great way to make time go by while waiting for something or another. It is addicting though and before you know it, one minute becomes 60! Edit April 27'12: the game is still fun and a few times I won a 25k, 50k and 100k jewel spin, whoohoo :) I play it everyday when I need to make time go by faster. Now and then the game can't log in, usually after an update, to FB. While I am ok with the occasional down time, it shouldn't happen each time an upgrade happens. It just doesn't look good on the developer part. So, while I am ok on/offline, I am removing one star for lack of checking or what not before releasing an update. I do have one request, can you make the abandon button not so close to the rare gem harvesting button? I realise that you want people to use the rare gem and make money from extra spins but it's a bit too easy to accidentally push - and there's no confirm button to use the rare gems, it just goes.
Favorite To Flop: Updates And Ads
by FallenStone15 on 2016/03/29 01:13
Have been playing game for years however, with the last several updates I've had to uninstall and then reinstall bc Blitz would NOT open at all! The most current update (March 2016), has now left my Blitz filled with ads after each time I play a round! NOT COOL, POPCAP! NOT COOL! I have over 50 Million coins and many special gems, I used the daily spin and the play for the daily special gem everyday. I am frustrated that after putting so much time, energy and an iTunes gift card into this app I am having to see so many ads! I watch the ads in the "free coins". I am certain other Blitzers would agree those ads are enough for people to watch! Even putting the ads on the main page and having "Progressive" sponsor coins is pushing the boundaries but that is so much better than the pop-ups!!! Fix the pop-up ads and the update difficulties (so I don't have to remove Colorfy-because Bejeweled wanted to open in that app-and reinstall Bejeweled Blitz again, then figure out how to reconnect Blitz through Facebook) and I will come back to review Blitz again. When the game is working correctly, it is very fun.
MOVE the BUTTON already
by Vivalasvegas2000 on 2012/12/08 00:46
UPDATE: Do not buy coins!! The special gem green button placement is a scam to burn your coins to get you to buy more. I have been playing this game for almost a year and there is a glitch where the game will pause or revert back to the old screen so you push the "buy a rare gem" green button rather than the "play" button. I think this is a purposeful scam because I have never "accidentally" purchased a cheaper gem. It only happens on the 75,000 coin gem. I do not think it is an accident! I have never bothered complaining on a review, but I think this is truly a scam and it aggravates me every time I feel ripped off. ORIGINAL POST: I love this game but refuse to give it more than one star until they MOVE the rare gem BUTTON. It takes too many games to earn coins just to have the game force you to use them because of their ridiculous placement of the button. I can't even let my kids play because they will always hit the big, green button and use my coins. And I refuse to pay for more coins since I feel swindled out of them every time I accidentally hit that button. Why cause such angst in your players who otherwise would be enjoying your game?? PLEASE fix this immediately!
Dumped it after 12 yrs of loyalty
by MonkeyBlue69 on 2014/06/27 15:11
I have played this game for over 12yrs. I have pd. for the app on several phones, have it on three pc's and now on my iPad. After this last update of blitz they are drowning my game with full page ads. I looked up the opt out and even if you DO choose that all it means is they will now send ads that do not pertain to your interests, but will drowned u with all kinds of ads so there is no way to stop it. I was in first place and had a lot of special gems saved not to mention all the time I spend playing this because it helps keep your mind quick also. I have removed the game for good after all these yrs. the last straw was this mornings pop ups started freezing my iPad and had to shut down and restart every time, enough is enough. Typical of big business, u have a good thing going and u throw everyone who made u right out the window. Good going Google. I bet people who spend a lot of money playing the game are not suffering with these pop ups. Just another way for them to weed out people who like the game for competition, meeting people and just fun. I am so done with on line live gaming. Leaves me more time on my other activities, good riddance.
My addiction has been cured by all the bad updates
by AnnB11261 on 2012/12/31 21:55
I've been addicted to this game for 2+ years. However, in trying to make the game "better", the last several updates have just made it so I don't even want to log in anymore. Starting from the top: 1) The game is taking longer and longer to load 2) It doesn't always recognize me/my friends, so I'm playing against a bunch of made up character names 3) When I've already taken my spin for the day I still have to go past this screen on subsequent plays of the day 4) If I'm lucky enough to finish a game without it crashing, the game crashes right at the end of the game and kicks me out. 5) I don't even bother purchasing any of the boosts, because when the game kicks me out, it doesn't remember that I have two more games left to play with those boosts. I'm spending less and less time with this game, and subsequently less an less likely to talk my Facebook friends into playing it, too. I did not upgrade to the new OS system because of all the bad news about it, but this shouldn't be the reason a perfectly good game has gone down the tubes.
Pop Cap Butterfly's Game Is Rigged For Certain Lose
by SLDdigital Photography on 2016/03/28 19:15
What is it with the creators of games these days that rig the games for certain lose. Butterfly's Bejeweled Game is one such a game. There isn't a China-mans chance in all the world a player can win at that game. When the player spots a move that can prevent the spider from catching the butterfly it doesn't matter - don't bother trying to save the move because the creators have programmed the game to disable the correction/save moves so the butterfly is going to be caught....and when the player has a butterfly almost caught the creators have made sure the player is out of moves that can prevent a end of game. They have rigged it so that a player will just never get ahead or win...ever...doesn't that kinda make you say to yourself "why bother"? You can play for weeks and you will not win so do yourself a favor and choose another game...one that is rewarding instead of one created by a bunch of sadits .
Getting tired of little reward
by Luvinmayberry on 2014/12/31 22:08
I have been a long time player, way before fb began. Now with having to purchase everything instead of earning it by accomplishment I've become aggravated. I REFUSE to spend money on a game, I may as well flush money down the toilet. Plus playing the game burns up my battery on my phone fast! It's very buggy and has gotten so bad that when Apple did diagnostics on my phone they found this app was the issue at amassing great amounts of bugs on my phone to the point I had to replace my phone. Ready to delete. I'm fast losing interest when the money earned comes way slower then anything you can spend it on for a gem. I don't believe that buying my way to getting top score is even in my top 10,000 things to do. Don't waste your money, it's all a money ploy to the creators. Find a better game that won't try to rip you off, occasionally steals 10s of 1000s of coins at a time, and after watching these stupid ads for free coins I've been stuck in an unending loop of commercials only to find out it banked the coins then took every last one back! Waste of time!!
Where are my coins????
by Family top chef on 2015/11/10 05:07
I love this game. Have been playing it for years. It's fun, addictive and I love the challenge and competition against my friends. My issue is that a few weeks ago my coins that I had worked hard to earn over a long period of time went from nearly 6,000,000 down to ZERO!!! How does that happen? I didn't spend them, I just opened the app and they were gone like I had never played. I restarted the app, restarted my phone thinking and hoping it was a glitch but it has been over 3 weeks and nothing has been restored. I have continued to play and rebuild my coins but those should be added to the coins I had already worked hard for. Someone should look into this issue and restore the coins that I had rightfully earned previously! Short of that I would have given the app 5 stars. Yes it glitches occasionally and freezes up and needs to be restarted but I don't know if anything technological that doesn't occasionally do this. Small irritate toon for a great game. I would just like my coins back.
I thought it was my phone...
by thunderboomerz on 2013/12/24 04:01
I am so relieved to see that the game is crap and not my phone. This used to be the only game I would play and i got good at it. I'm telling anyone that has the old version not to update if they dont have to. Each time you update it gets a little slower and finally it just opens to the home page and crashes. I've gone to the Pop cap website and tried everything they suggested, nothing works. I really miss this game but it is what it is...I'll keep looking and find something to take its place. I'm giving it a rate of 1 star now but if you can get it to not crash...its a definite 5 star game. FIXX please and find a way to let everyone know its been fixed! so i came back and bugs have been fixed. ILuv This game! There are so many copycat games that just dont measure up. give it a shot ur sure to get hooked. the color is sharper and so are the graphics. i'm back in love! Bugs r Gone.
It's gotten to be no fun. It's a joke
by Bobbijo1219 on 2014/12/17 13:47
You know it's sad that you can't even get the blue or red gems unless you spend money on this I don't have the money to spend I just try to have some fun with it The gems are are very expensive it's making the game not fun to play anymore . I'm finding out from family and friends that's why they don't play the game. That is too expensive is no fun I think it's fun. Months ago either give you a five star rating now that I've seen how it works. December 14, 2014 I give up playing candy crush because I thought this was a thunder game but it's just gotten cost many points to get to your jams and we only get five or 600 per game I don't have the money to pay for your jams but I've talk to friends that won't play the game because it for these reasons and sometimes when you update your update your app you lose all your points and that's not right i'm going got one from the blaze it now you don't play that much anymore because 75,000 by one gym or whatever you want to call it i'll give it another month or so or less to find a different game right now I won't ask people to play this game
Bejeweled Blitz
by Tygresspv on 2015/06/09 16:35
Although the game is improved some, I have to play on my IPAD MINI because my tremors won't allow me to play well with the usual computer mouse. This being said, I find it frustrating that I can't get all the same "perks" as I did on FaceBook, using the computer. I can't share I my daily spin score, or invite others to join etc. Now, we have these mandatory periodic "upgrades" which really don't improve the game as much as they aggravate with interruptions with annoying advertisements. The ads wouldn't be so annoying , but they interrupt in the middle of playing the game & when I X it out, it takes me to the App Store instead of back to my game! Another frustration is this new "Daily Challenge". It has not been explained what it is or how it works, or or how to play. I love. this game, but all these interruptions & unnecessary ads & so-called upgrades are my daily challenge!
Crashes when trying to load
by Boothacus on 2016/03/15 15:18
The game is really good and you can get addicted but the most recent update is very buggy. Coin/gem wins in daily challenge doesn't seem to apply even if you've won your score doesn't apply to your general high score. I used to be able to play iTunes in the background but now it cuts out and I've had to restart my phone a few times to when the whole game seems to get wonky with sound. There is also a delay after you finish a game that keeps you stuck before it lets you play again. I am assuming that it's so you can see all the great play combs/possibilities that just showed up on the board now that the game is over but since I'm trying to play again anyway no need to entice me and delays my actual playing again. Very annoying. The rare gems can be really pricy but all of these criticisms aside, it's a very addictive game. And I play it all the time. The 'add coin' by watching short ads is a great feature since they get to give you the game for free and sell advertising and you get to get coins without having ads pop up distracting you while you're trying to play.
Redundant play
by Rayman12321 on 2012/09/05 05:38
I feel like I have to play over and over and over again to earn so little coin each game in order to attempt to beat the higher score. I find myself just waiting and hoping I get a good spin and win coin rather than playing to earn it. The game seems to lead you to want to purchase coin but instead for me it just makes me not want to play. It's agonizing playing and playing to earn next to nothing compared one one good free spin that will get you more in a 12 hour span then actually playing for 12 hours. It's a fun game, when you have coins. Otherwise it's like farming for it. Then when you pay for a rare gem and just don't get a good run, all that time you spent earning or waiting for the coins goes to nothing. I'd have to say 3 stars just due to the game itself being entertaining. Not a 4 or 5 because the competition of the game relies solely on having enough coin.
Great game but......
by JBalls12345678910 on 2013/06/26 05:23
First, when you purchase a multiplier gem to start the game EVERY time it starts out in the bottom three rows on the outside of the grid. Why would this matter? We've already purchased the gem and you're handicapping it!? Not once in probably over 200 games did it start out at the top or even in the middle of the game. I love this game and have played Bejeweled since I was in my college dorm almost 10 years ago but there are certain nuances that I am not thrilled with since I started updating a few months ago. The daily spin or if spins are purchased there seem to be more low amounts, and the spinners land on them much more frequently, with every update. The high coin values of the fun special gems haven't budged but the payouts have. Maybe tier the spins with only 2 like gems so they aren't all 2500 which is terrible to land on. Or change up the payouts. There are a lot of low but only one really high maybe put some more in the middle.
Sorry I updated!
by Dot402 on 2014/07/12 00:04
Do not update...you loose everything! This version is not worth your time. I can no longer play with Facebook friends on my iPad. :-( bring back the old version! I would give it no stars if I could...robbers...wish I could get back time and money invested. Lawyers should be contacted. Support help is NO help! Here we go again. Does not even let me write my own review. Every time I update, I cannot play on my iPad, only on my phone. I know they can fix these problems because it was fixed before. Very frustrating . I agree with the person who started this review...you are ripping us off! Keep it up and you won't be #1 for long. I hope someone reads this....😢😢😢😢please HELP!!! Are you out there??? And now nothing but full page ads that I have no interest in and still crashes when it comes time to use my boosts for second game... Still a one star... Fix the game and you get five and not until! Please stop these full page ads. All they do is kick me out of my game. And whenever I buy boosts, I get kicked out before I can take advantage of them, resulting in loss of coins....
Getting worst with each release
by LDaudelin on 2012/07/26 21:31
Is it me or is this game getting worst with each release? Now, when the app is terminated because it's been in the background, when you come back and it reloads, it completely forget about your score or your friends' score. It doesn't' even remember you were connected through Facebook. So, you have to login again through Facebook (which is another prime example of a lame, slow application) and then when you come back in the app, it doesn't remember your last score! It doesn't even remember the score of your friends. Fortunately (or maybe by accident), when you play a game and come back after the game to the main menu, your previous highest score for the week is restored. But no score is showing for any of your friends. It is also very obvious that this app is just there in the App Store to make money. I don't have a problem with that but when it's becoming too obvious, I lose interest quickly. I think people are rating this app too quickly and way too high. It was a fine game a year ago but PopCap is completely destroying it.
WAS really addicting.....was.
by Photoracer1 on 2016/03/16 18:58
When I tried to open the app with the new, most recent update, I found it would simply fail to load and then quit altogether. Thinking it was something I must have done, I shut the phone off and turned it back on, thinking it was a glitch. Well, there is a glitch, but it isn't on my end! This 'update' is effectively ending this app's usefulness and enjoyment. I had this app for a few years and built up almost 9M tokens without ever buying any. Not only can I not access my tokens, but I can't play the game. Now, I fear I've lost all of them. If anyone within the company cares at all, fix the glitch, and make sure you restore everyone's tokens! This is a good faith suggestion I would HIGHLY recommend! I also have the Classic Bejewelled and it is unaffected, EXCEPT the Blitz that is contained within it. Same problem! Come on PopCap, get your act together and TEST your updates before wreaking havoc on your loyal customers. Just remember, there are other game companies out there that would love to have us play their games. Do the right thing and please fix this issue!
Inconsistent scoring & buying gems really costs
by SchmutzieCat on 2013/12/24 01:25
The game itself is fun and challenging BUT it is wildly inconsistent in how many points you can win in any given game (without buying any gems). One game you may win 300,000+ points and then not get over 25,000 or 50,000 points for the next 10 or more games, and you are making the same/similar combinations of matching jewels. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason behind the scoring, and nothing is written down in the rules to explain how points are earned. It is also very frustrating that one must generally spend between 10,000 and 75,000 coins to purchase a gem (depending on the gem), but the most coins one is likely to earn back playing with the purchased gem is far less than the purchase price (perhaps as much as 5,000 coins). This makes purchasing coins a losing proposition and not really worth it. The game would be much better if players had a chance to make back what they spend on a gem when they buy the gem.
Needs updates
by swiftcraze on 2011/12/17 04:48
The new graphics are pretty amazing for the retina display. The colors are crisp and vibrant. The gems are pretty cool. The casino style "spin for coins" was a nice touch as well. Before the update i was glued to this game. But since the upgrade to the separate Bejeweled Blitz, not so much. It's very slow. Like, incredibly slow! The movement on the game pieces is seriously delayed and to get a high score you absolutely need specialty gems. Which will cost you a lot of coins. Even though you get the free bonus spin for coins, it's now impossible to accumulate coins. It seriously takes for ever. In my opinion they did it so you would run out of coins quickly and have to pay for the coins instead of earn them during game if you wanted to play. The update also removed your personal stats. That was the worst part of the update I thought. I was addicted to getting all my star levels to lv 5 gold and competing vs my friends stats. In Essenes the game is pretty much horrendous now. Unless you update it, I won't be playing much anymore. But they already got my money so I guess they don't really care!!
Play with caution
by bridget330 on 2015/10/16 01:58
Let me begin by saying that I've played this game for years and enjoy playing it. However, Apple i-tunes robs you when buying coins. They offer a special but after you agree to purchase it for one price, they charge you full price. They also have a new thing if you play it on your computer. A pop up asks you to purchase coins in a slick little way that you just click yes to get it out of the way, until you realize that it just charged you money for coins. I've contacted the makers of the game and they referred me back to I-tunes. It is next to impossible to contact them for any reason. It seems to me that the maker of the game has responsibility to make sure that we are charged the correct amount without getting ripped off, but they play the innocent victim. I have been charged $65 for coins. "I know, I'm the crazy one because I continue to play." I don't think I should have to stop playing because they lack integrity. Anyway. Proceed with caution.

by wicked witch of the west on 2012/09/11 05:39
Just wanted to say, I'm a pretty careful consumer. I don't like to download updates until I read the reviews and make sure everything is working correctly. And in many cases, i'll simply forgo the update or delete the app altogether if the update reviews are less than favorable. Well, I read the reviews and waited and then downloaded anyway because I LOVE this game and it wouldn't allow me to play at all unless I updated-which in itself was pretty frustrating. I guess I'm lucky that I'm still able to play and the app doesn't crash, as I've seen in other reviews, but I'm highly disappointed that my score vs. my FB friends has been the same for the last 3 weeks. Granted, it is higher than theirs, but I kinda like competing on a week by week basis. This just isn't fun. And there's no telling what they see my score as being this week. I'm also disappointed that this hasn't been corrected, or even addressed on the FB page (so far as I've seen). Is this something I just have to get used to? Because it kinda feels like this game has lost all it's flavor as a result of the update.
Past Posters Plz Read!!!
by Heath.. on 2014/07/24 17:30
Ok so I hope that people who have posted in the past read this. I've seen a lot of complaints about accidentally buying rare gems when hitting the play button twice to play faster. I you hit it twice and accidentally bought a rare gem (which I have done as well) them you should see the page to buy other special gems as well before you actually play. All you have to do is hit the back arrow and go back to the main page and it will cancel the gem. Hope this helps! Ok now for my review. Like everyone has said, this game is very addictive (and annoying ;)) and fun. It links to Facebook and I've stopped playing it on the computer. I've found using this app easier. The only reason I only gave it 3 stars was because the latest update brought pop up ads in between games every so often. It didnt do this before and I'm hoping the low rating will get the attention of developers and try get rid of the ads.
Do not update.
by Joe_in_boston on 2012/06/11 00:20
Agree with reviewers who thought this game was better before when you could use one booster offline without the coin system. Now, the point system is a total scam because they require way too many coins for each booster, and come on, it is one minute of play time! You don't earn enough coins to play with boosters unless you are willing to pay for coins, so the only realistic option is to play without boosters. And you still have to click through several fields to circumvent all the boosters and gems and what not, in order to play again...another one minute game. Ridiculous. I also don't like that it's impossible to understand the scoring system. You have a sense of how good you're doing, but that correlates poorly with your final score, and it is impossible to develop a strategy short of go faster! So while this game is pretty fun on its own merits, the application producers have ruined it. My solution: erase from my iPad and avoid wasting time with an app that partly entertains me and partly irritates me.
Fun but be warned
by Kouth on 2013/04/21 19:49
This is a fun game, that can be very addicting. It is also fun to make goals for yourself in gaining coins. The problem with this game is that occasionally you are offered an option to spend many coins on a special game enhancement. The genius thing here is that when these people designed the game, they designed the 'ok' option perfectly, right above the 'no thanks' button. There has been many times when I have blown 50,000 coins against my will. Very frustrating and frankly I always feel like someone is stealing from me when it happens. The idea that they designed the 'ok' button right next to the 'no thanks' button in a way that causes people to accidentally click it. In turn, causing general players to go to the 'spin' section and spend more money on the game. It really should be fixed, but it hasn't been because they like tricking the public into more spending.
THIS GAME IS A RIP OFF
by Sbanhagel on 2015/10/18 04:09
Do not use this game!!!! Rips you off on coins you actually buy!! Not only that, they tell you that you get a discount on a new boost and it charges you full price!! It hit me for over $75. Ok I let it go the first two times and on the third try... I went to purchase additional coins because the spinner is an absolute JOKE!!! You will NEVER HIT THE BLUE DIAMONDS!!! Took another chance to buy coins and it did give me the correct amount. Didn't play again for almost a month and started seeing fraudulent charges on my credit card. They ripped me off $45 a week out under some credit check company. The last laugh was on them! Once the proper paperwork was filed and my bank took over, we changed 100% of my account information. New account numbers and credit card numbers were issued. They kept being greedy for their weekly $45 and finally got busted!! They were using credit card checks of all things to make it happen!!! If career criminals would use their intelligence for legal work, they would be considered the upper class in society!! What a shame!!!!
Curious
by LisaH123 on 2014/07/24 16:39
I have played this game for years. It's one of the only games I have played almost daily. I have completed every maximum level you can. I am Rank 182. Nothing left to challenge me there. However the keystones keep me playing... Unless.. The only keystones that pop up are to clear a bunch of gems. That's boring so I don't play as often. I only use coins to obtain a high score... After that it seems pointless to use any coins to obtain a keystone where the payoff is substantially less that the number of coins it would take to complete the task. The game used to have a chat feature where I could message my friends when we played. That disappeared. I think there should also be an option to share your current coins with a friend. There should be more keystones to complete for tokens... I do not need XP points.
Updated..kept crashing until...
by ~Kristy~ on 2016/03/19 00:51
When my phone did the auto update, needless to say, my game wouldn't open & kept crashing.. I had read other reviews & I, too, was afraid of losing all my coins & rare gems (which I have a ton of & have never spent a dime!) if I uninstalled & reinstalled this game..but after 3 days of not being able to play, or collect my daily spins, I decided to do it.. and it worked!! As soon as I logged into FB, my coin balance went back up to almost 5M & I got all my rare gems back! So, I am one happy camper..lol. I'm hooked on this game. I love it & I love the daily challenges & opportunities to collect the gems. Keep up the great game!, but in the future, please try to test out the updates before releasing it & thus causing unnecessary disappointment to your loyal fans/customers. Just a suggestion. Thanks for everything! 👍😊
Frustrating but addicting
by Mod011000 on 2013/03/21 02:39
Great game and wonderfully addicting! However, there two things that frustrates me to the point I'm going to delete the app and find something else to fulfill my boredom. The first thing is the Daily Spin has become less than amusing. I'm not winning anything over than 10k and that us not very often. Before I would earn more allowing to purchase different jewels. Now I have to play longer just to earn enough coins. The last and most frustrating of all is the placement of the offer to purchase the jewels. After my game is complete I have the option to play again or purchase a special jewel that will help me gain more coins. Well on at least 4 occasions when I've try to bypass the purchasing of the jewel and just play the next game, I end up purchasing the jewel which deducts coins from my earnings. Therefore I can't save enough coins to get the big jewel to purchase. Any suggestions for a nothing addicting game, but this time without the headaches...
Addicting, Beautiful, Heart-Pounding GamePlay
by Kurt Truk on 2013/04/09 22:23
I've played just about every version of Bejeweled and Bejeweled Blitz is my favorite. It's the best of the best in this style of game. Here are my suggestions and problems that need to be corrected before I'll go up to Five Stars, It's Great: As of the last two months gameplay has become sluggish. I'll be blazing along and then all of a sudden the game slows, my input is not recognized and on more than one occasion this has prevented me from hitting the coveted 1,000,000 point benchmark. So very frustrating when that happens. I'm sure you understand my frustration. This is an issue that has occurred only recently, within the last eight weeks or so. Something happened that caused this and needs to be addressed. So until then, user be ware. Make it easier to earn coins, please. A pull on the slot machine once a day and the few coins earned during gameplay are not enough to buy gems and upgrades. Because of this it is necessary to purchase coins to do so. It's great you have specials for certain gems and upgrades throughout the week and even a happy hour, but that's not enough. Level the playing field between those who can afford the coins and those who rely on gameplay to do so. It's just not fair. I look forward to future updates of this good game.
Additictive, Fun, but Occasionally Annoying
by Wyatt the Odd on 2014/03/06 01:28
This is not the app to use if you expect gemstones to shoot out of your iPhone. That doesn't happen here. Ever. For that, you'll need to download Magic Genie Lamp and rub vigorously. Please note that you must have also installed "Living in Fantasyland" into your wetware. Given that, who is this game for? Why, anyone who wants to kill a few minutes without the risk of "just one more level" during an executive meeting. Also, it's ideal for anyone with failed lapidary dreams. Why? Because, as the name says, you're blowing up precious gems. And, you've only got a minute before your horde is replaced by the top score screen. This is a game that seems to genuinely want you to rack up a massive score even if you don't use real money to buy the in-game coins. Each night, they give you a pull at the slot machine. And, the game will show you possible moves if you're stuck - it just won't show you the best move. The latest update seems to have geeked a couple of things. It keeps trying to open my phone's Game Center despite me disabling it. Also, after the trying the slot machine, you have to wait for the game to decide that you've read the message about when your next pull is available before it'll let you out. I've accidentally bought more "rare" gems because of this glitch than those I've bought on purpose.
Latest update killed the game on ipad 1.
by Annalizzie on 2015/01/18 06:59
I was forced to update this game on my original ipad (that I use primarily to play this game...or I used to). It would not let me delay the upgrade and it would not let me play without it. When I tried to update, it said I needed to first update my OS to 6.0 which the original ipad can't support. (The OS is as high as allowed on this ipad.) It then asked if I would like a lesser Blitz upgrade that my ipad could handle. Again, I had to say yes, could not play otherwise. Well, no matter, I can't play the game with the supposed "upgrade" either. I had over 2 million points that just disappeared. If I try to do anything, I am bounced out of the game. Please, let us slowpokes keep our old ipads and old versions of apps. This is annoying beyond belief, and why I usually don't "upgrade" games because they often come with all sorts of problems. A similar thing happened with a previous upgrade of Blitz, but that subsequently was fixed. Before this, it was a fun game that I played daily. BUMMER!
Awesome idea!!!!
by Candas Fields on 2012/03/07 22:06
Love this game!!! Dont enjoy the fact that sometimes when I get 50k I get 500 coins or sometimes get 200k and still get 500 coins......I know you can buy coins but not everyone wants to buy them all the time. And you should get more coins for getting 200k. So I think if you get 50k, you get 500 coins, 100k a 1000, 200k 2000 coins and so on. Even if you got a million, you would only get 10,000 points. Just get rid of the coins on the jewels, keep the "2X, 3X, etc" for additional points, that way we don't get bored playing all the time just to get to the "Phoenix prism". That's my favorite part of the game, is when I get that and add three more things in my boxes!!! Its rock and roll time when that happens!!! Please please please consider this!!! Oh and to confirm some stuff already mentioned......my Facebook check in is fine, and yes, the 500k medal doesnt get added...... Thanks
Not an improvement over previous version
by Sun Quest on 2013/02/22 05:37
Won't save settings when I turn off music volume and disable auto-renewal of boosts. If I completely exit out of bejeweled blitz so it is not running in the background, then the settings revert back to defaults. I uninstalled and reinstalled this version and that did not help. I don't like auto-renewal always defaulting to on. Please fix as this is annoying. Update: After playing new version since installing it yesterday I can honestly say I see it as being less favorable than I previously thought. It is SLOW! Very very slow. It went from the gems falling fast to me being able to say "click click click" as they drop. This is on my iPhone4. I was getting around 800k, and now the best I can get is around 500k. I will not be using any more coins or buying any spins to get coins until it is fixed. I am downgrading the rating to 1 star. Wish I could give it zero instead as this game is no longer fun to play due to the jerky dropping of the gems. I really wish I hadn't upgraded.
Please let older iPads play the previous version!
by Blitzless on 2015/01/24 03:37
I have been addicted to this game for years and built my coins up to nearly 10,000,000. Last week I was forced to try to upgrade to the newer version of Blitz. I didn't think my old iPad could support it, but figured if it couldn't I would still be able to play the older version that I came to love. When I tried to click on Blitz again I was given the option of " do not upgrade now". It just ejected me from the game. I tried several times with no satisfaction. I really would appreciate a fix that would let me click on the "not now" option and reload my old version and keep the coin bank. I don't need brighter gems I just need the old version since I'm not buying a new iPad just to play this game.
Bejeweled Blitz
by GameDweeber on 2013/06/09 01:19
I love this game so much, but I'm kind if tired o the constant bugs that it has. One, for example, is not opening right away. Also, it hasn't been saying my high score for the week. And I'm kind of ticked that, for whatever reason, I has 50,000 coins total after one round and then the next, I have about 13,000. I mean, what happened to all my coins? I didn't use them on anything. They just disappeared. Not looking at the bugs and my complains, I think that the game is overall pretty good. It keeps me entertained for hours in the car for long car trips, or just entertained around the house when I have nothing to do. It's a lot of fun to play with my friends as well. Like at a party, my friends and I can pass my iPod around, playing this, seeing who can get the highest score. All in all, it's a great game. But please, fix the bugs.
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.

by Fishing Creek on 2015/09/18 09:14
Still loving this game after all these years! Struggled for a LONG time to figure out the best way to play. This is what I've learned: Forget the points & concentrate on earning free coins. I play for long periods of time just earning free coins. Once I have about 8 or 900,000 coins, then I play for points by buying the most powerful boosts as many times as I can afford in order to be the 1st place player in my group. It's not so hard to accomplish that when I can buy as many boosts as I need. I stay in 1st place for the 6 day game period. After that I take more weeks to bring up the number of coins in my 'bank' so that I can buy the boosts I need to power myself back up to 1st place again. Even bringing myself up to 5th place is exciting. Since I have discovered this way to play, I'm enjoying Blitz more than I ever though possible 😄
What's up with this update!!!!????
by TommyG48 on 2015/11/12 14:14
Absolutely love playing this game. It's used up a lot of time while waiting for family at their appointments. Great game to play and enjoy many hours of playing this game ... However with every update they force on all of us this game became more n more unreliable. This last update just won't download n install and now all the close to two million coins are apparently lost n the game won't even open. I agree w Kris495 I believe who said it keeps returning to the download page. A frustrating loop that's driving me nuts. Either fix it or I'll find another developer to follow also n will tell ALL my friends about this company's failure to resolve issues for players who have been on this game for years. Accomplishments are all lost and there were A LOT.... Gone
