Summary: I highly recommend getting this awesome game, but I do not recommend buying the DS version. I have owned the PC version, iPad and iPhone versions and ALL of them are superior to this version. This version has many small bugs and issues from the port (transfer of the game into DS format) and unfortunately they are a deal-breaker for me. You can't save most things, for one thing, which you can easily do on all other formats of the game like PC or iPhone.
Summary: When getting this game, I'd expected to be able to continue Survival Endless after turning off my DS. Turns out, once you leave Survival Endless, you can't continue it. The overall game is the same as the computer version, but much more pixelated, of course. And though you can't continue Survival Endless, your Zen Garden is always saved, a great plus. Also, there are trashcan zombies, that are very difficult to get rid of. Then there's the glitches.
Summary: I've been dying to play this since the R4 i have can not emulate this, so I bought it cheap off Ebay. Now that I have it, I'm kinda disappointed I'd been hanging out so long to play it. This is not the bejeweled game, but bejeweled twist.. which in some ways, many people may prefer over the original.
Bejeweled Blitz fans may be disappointed, but Twist is a good version in its own right.

Summary: Bejeweled Twist has players selecting four jewels at a time and rotating them in order to make the 3, 4 and 5 jewel combinations that draw points and special pieces. Had I never played Blitz before (available and quite popular as a free application on Facebook or as a paid app for iPods/iPhones through the Apple App Store) then I'm sure I would have just loved this.
Summary: Bought this game because of similar game (Jewels) I play on my Droid phone. This one is repetative and becomes boring after a while. Little variations in play - same strategies of play over and over - would have been nice to have some more variety. Good quality graphics but still a bit boring. At least the price was reasonable. If I had payed $29 I would have felt much worse.
Summary: I play Bejeweled Blitz on Facebook a lot so bought this game. Was a bit disappointed when it arrived as to match 3 or more gems, you have to rotate the gems. Don't normally like those games. However, now I'm used to it, I enjoy playing it. My one criticism (and it could well just be me being thick) is that to get from one mode to another, you have to turn off and restart.
