This page is about the first challenge in Bejeweled Twist. For other uses, see Detonator (disambiguation).

Detonator is the first challenge in Challenge mode. It is available upon accessing the game mode for the first time.

The puzzles of Detonator involve clearing specific numbers of gems in one move each. Certain puzzles also prohibit the use of Lightning Gems; clearing them negates any progress made toward the puzzle status. However, no penalties occur for creating Lightning Gems in those puzzles. The challenge's Eclipse puzzle features a different goal, which involves acquiring the largest amount of points possible in one move within a given time limit.

Completing the first puzzle of Detonator unlocks Spectrum, the next challenge in Challenge mode.

Detonator's Eclipe puzzle incorporates the same basic scoring mechanics as those in Classic. However, base point values in the Eclipse puzzle can only be multiplied via the Simultaneous Match Multiplier. This is because the Score Multiplier is absent in Challenge.


  • Clearing Supernova Gems also negates progress in the puzzles that prohibit using Lightning Gems.


  • A detonator is a device or small quantity of explosive used for triggering a high explosive.
  • The challenge titles of Detonator and Enigma in the PC and Mac versions of Bejeweled Twist are exactly the same color.
