Review
The first time I played Bejewelled Blitz was on FaceBook about a year or so ago, and now I have moved onto the version available for Android on Google Play. You have sixty seconds to match up as many gems as you can to get the biggest score possible.

The first time you play, you are given a quick tutorial. Match three or more of the same gems horizontally or vertically to clear them off the board. If you make a row of four or more, then you receive special gem that increase your score when played. For example, it might triple your score, or zap its surrounding gems.

You can use your points to buy boosts, such as five seconds extra time or shuffling the gems about. If you have trouble finding matches, after a certain length of time, you will be given a hint.

If you find yourself low on coins, then have a go at the daily spin. Get three of the same gem, and win the pool.

If you have a wifi connection, then you might get offered super power ups. These cost a lot of coins, but significantly increase your score.

The power up gets put into play at the end of the round, and destroys all the gems with cool graphic effects. The graphics are not the only thing that is fun in the game. There are great sound effects that increase the tension as time runs out, and the 'commentator' has a hilariously macho deep booming voice. The one thing I do find annoying is that he tells you when you have thirty seconds left, but does not provide a ten second count down.

After a round, you can view your stats, which shows you how many times you have scored over 20k, 50k, 100k, etc.
