Survivor is the eleventh challenge in Challenge mode. It becomes available by completing the first puzzle of Bonanza.

The puzzles of Survivor involve performing specific numbers of moves. Bomb Gems, Locked Gems, and Doom Gems appear during each puzzle in attempt to hinder progress.

Completing the first puzzle of Survivor unlocks Voltage, the next challenge in Challenge mode.

  • The puzzles of Survivor are the only ones in Challenge mode that feature Bomb Gems and Locked Gems.
  • This and Stratamax are the only challenges that:
    • Have Eclipse puzzles that are not required to be completed within a time limit which also allow progress to be saved and resumed whenever.
    • In the PC version of the Bejeweled Twist, they used the same music that is unique in which performing moves increases the tempo and adds more instrumentation: when you start moving, the tempo increases, and when there are 4 or less moves left, additional instrumentation is added. In the Eclipse puzzle, after the 8th turn, the version of the music when there are 4 or less moves left plays throughout the rest of the puzzle.
  • In the DS/DSiWare versions:
    • The Eclipse challenge of Survivor is a lot more difficult. The maximum counter value of the Doom Gem will reduce to 5 over time as you make more and more matches, as opposed to the fixed 15 value of the PC version. Bomb Gems spawn every two to four gem matches but locks appear a lot less often. Also the track that plays in the background is the untimed theme rather than the turn-based one. The same procedure applied to normal puzzles opposed to the fixed 20 value of the Doom Gem.
    • The Bomb Gem/Doom Gem exploding animation is not used in this challenge as opposed to the PC version. Instead, when a Bomb or Doom hits 0, you'll only receive the Game Over message instead.
