Bejeweled Blitz has been around on the App Store for a while now, and in that time players have apparently been making numerous requests for Vaulted Gems. This feature, which was exclusive to the Facebook version for quite some time, will make rare and powerful gems available to really mix things up during a game. In addition, a new rare gems called the Ice Burrrst will also be attainable. Players will also no doubt be happy to know that this update also includes a new Items tab, which will allow them to browse and manage their grants, shares, and gem gifts more easily.

Only got a minute or two to spare but want to get some fun gaming in? Why not try one of these four titles, all focused on providing maximum satisfaction in less than two minutes. They all have the bonus of being ideal for score chasers, given that the main objective is to beat one’s friends’ high scores. Plus, almost all of them have the word Blitz in their title, to remind us of just what genre they form a part of!

Bejeweled Blitz
The ruler of all great time wasters, the Bejeweled series knows how to draw players in for short bursts. This is most evident with Bejeweled Blitz, a game solely focused on seeing what high scores players can create in a matter of 60 seconds. Played well, it’s a fast paced title, full of special gems such as Hypercubes and Flame gems. Coins dictate the bonuses that can be used, but never fear, there’s a daily spin game to offer up extras for those unkeen to delve into the in-app purchases available.

Solitaire Blitz
Mostly responsible for any time that I procrastinate like crazy, Solitaire Blitz is quite the addiction. The classic card game of Solitaire is combined with a series of power-ups and a tight time limit, all in the name of score chasing. It’s a potent mix, mostly because it’s so easy to get to grips with. An energy system might restrict how many times one can play it during one session, but with only a minute or so to spare for gaming, that’s not really a problem, right?

Dots: A Game About Connecting
Ok, so connecting dots doesn’t sound very exciting. Dots bucks that trend, though. Players must draw a line between matching dots and watch the points trickle in. Form a square with such dots, however, and the points start flooding through. It’s immensely simple but that’s exactly why Dots is so much fun. It’s ideal as a palate cleanser to life, when one just needs to take some time out from reality and delve into the world of dot connecting.

Tetris Blitz
Ok, so Tetris Blitz isn’t perfect, thanks to its overenthusiastic in-app purchases making mostly everyone a little cynical. It is great fun, though, and an ideal way to spend two minutes. We all know the drill now: clear lines by placing blocks together, accrue as many points as possible in the time limit. Purists may be disappointed to see some of the power-ups available, but Tetris Blitz still offers some of the old-school magic we all know so well.

Bejewled Blitz, PopCap’s incredibly popular timed variant of the classic match-three game Bejewled made its way from Facebook into the App Store late last year. The game broke iOS ground, being the first universal iteration of the archetypal puzzle and is integrated into the new Bejewled and Bejewled HD, which are similar to the PC/Mac game Bejewled 3. Now PopCap has given the iOS version a Facebook-style makeover that allows gamers to play without Facebook friends or linking their accounts.

This new “universal” mode in version 1.2 now has Game Center integration with worldwide leader boards. More importantly to fans, the iOS version now also has all the Facebook special perks like daily spins, rare gems, the ability to get multiple bonuses, and stats for as long as you keep playing. There will even be weekly tournaments against PopCap’s iconic characters as well as lots of in-app purchases in place of Facebook credits.

The Bejewled franchise has sold more than 50 million units so far, and this iOS fermium version should only help with what must already be an impressive bottom line.

Fruit Ninja Gets Arcade Mode

Fruit Ninja has consistently been one of the best-selling and most beloved gaming apps available on the iTunes Store, and now this super-entertaining game has gotten even more addictive with the addition of a brand new mode. The game, both in standard and iPad HD varieties is getting support for a brand-new Arcade mode, which looks to be highly entertaining. Among the new features included are:

Double Points – This banana will award you double points for a short period of time. Criticals and combos count too, so rack up those fruit for some massive scores!

Frenzy – If you’re not content with the amount of fruit on screen, the Frenzy banana will take care of that. A mammoth amount of fruit will begin flying in, but you have to stay focused to slice it all!

Freeze – The entire screen will slow down, allowing for maximum accuracy and combo potential!

Each round in Arcade mode lasts for 60 seconds, and at the end you can post your scores and see how you stack up with other members of the fruit slashing community. It’s very similar to other Arcade style games such as Bejeweled Blitz, and we all know how ridiculously addictive and popular such games can be. When you’re tired of cutting the rope why not go back to cutting the fruit, but this time with a frenzy?

Now that the mysterious “banana mode” which has haunted players for months has finally been revealed we have to ask, what do you think? Is this the sort of thing you had been dreaming of, or would some other new mode have suited the game better? From where I sit, you should be happy I stopped playing long enough to report this news, there are pineapples that must be frozen and then sliced and I’m wasting precious seconds typing instead!
