Worth Playing (Feb 28, 2010)
Once again, Bejeweled Twist proves to everyone that PopCap can make significant changes to its games and still come away with a great puzzle title. The theme may feel like a strange fit, but there's no denying that the addictive nature of the game is present and as infectious as before. Puzzle game fans of all types should have no excuse as to why this title isn't already in their game libraries, and those who may have grown tired of the original's often-copied formula may find themselves loving the new changes in Bejeweled Twist.

Of course, if you’ve already played this game to death, a few new twists may not be enough to warrant a purchase, especially if you have the game on an even more convenient format (like your phone). This is a $20 “budget” game, about as low as retail DS games go, and it’s as flawless as any “match three” puzzler as I’ve played, so it gets my recommendation. Just know your limits – and your tendency towards full-blown addiction.

Bejeweled Twist is a pretty good puzzle game on the Nintendo DS. Out of all the Bejeweled games this one stands out as the best. It does stink a little that you have to earn the other modes. Even with that tiny problem PopCap Games has done a good effort with this game and nobody should pass it up.

Bejeweled Twist is a brilliant puzzle game and a smart evolution of the Bejeweled formula. Only a weak multiplayer offering takes the shine off its otherwise gleaming surface.

But it could happen, I suppose. Check your wallet! Maybe you fortune has just come true. In any case, Bejeweled Twist is a neat pick-up-and-play variation on Bejeweled and a solid entry for the franchise.

Schon komisch, dass Nintendos Handheld erst jetzt mit einem Bejeweled-Ableger bedacht wird. Am zeitlosen Spielprinzip hat sich aber auch in der neuen Twist-Variante nicht viel geändert. Nach wie vor gilt es mindesten drei gleichfarbige Steine aneinander zu reihen, um diese aufzulösen. Im Gegensatz zu früher wechseln die Steine ihre Position jedoch nicht mehr durch Platztausch mit Nachbarsteinen, sondern durch Rotation von Vierergruppen - daher auch der Namenszusatz Twist. Das Prinzip kennt man bereits aus anderen Knobelspielen wie Hexic und sorgt daher kaum für Überraschung. Auch das Angebot an Spielmodi ist eher unspektakulär, deckt aber die meisten Spielvorlieben ab. Nur einen Rätselmodus mit vorgefertigten Puzzles sucht man dieses Mal vergebens. Als Ausgleich gibt es aktionsbezogene Herausforderungen sowie einen Duell-Modus für zwei Spieler, die aber leider beide im Besitz des auch via DSi Ware erhältlichen Spiels sein müssen.

Finally, there is a two-player mode to round out this package. This is a competitive version of Classic mode, pitting two players against each other in a race to rack up combos before being overwhelmed by bombs. It's fun, because destroying gems is fun, but there is a severe disconnect between players. It's difficult to know what your opponent is up to, so it feels more like a single-player game peppered with random shouts of happiness or barks of anger rather than an engaging competitive experience. Furthermore, it requires two carts to play, which is pretty extravagant, and is bogged down by a lot of lag. The single-player component is the heart of the game, but Bejeweled Twist isn't at the same level as its prestigious progenitor. The game is hard to put down once you get in a rhythm, but the experience doesn't leave a lasting impression.

Bejeweled Twist is a decent puzzler for the DS, despite remaining my least favorite entry in the Bejeweled series. It just doesn’t have the immediate pop of previous chapters. I think slowing it down and adding bad luck kills were mistakes. But even then, PopCap’s worst efforts are still considerably better than the best attempts of other casual game makers.

Mit „Bejeweled Twist“ bringt rondomedia eine neues 3-Match-Abenteuer, dass sich in Bezug auf das Spielkonzept und das Handwerkszeug ein klein wenig von den „Jewel Master“- und „Fishdom“-Reihen unterscheidet. Die technische Präsentation ist ebenfalls so einfach gehalten wie bei den beiden genannten Reihen. Somit ist es nicht verwunderlich, dass unter dem Strich auch die gleiche Wertung herauskommt.

Bejeweled Twist is a decent puzzler that will undoubtedly take up many hours of your time if you give it a chance. As a standalone game it’s a bit of a struggle to recommend Bejeweled Twist to most gamers, but if you’re a fan of the Bejeweled mechanic then this is surely a must have for your collection.
