Hyper Mode strategy?

Has anybody completed 8 levels of Hyper mode ?? The time bar is way too fast. I always die (!) on the 5th level...

Does anyone have a strategy for this?

I'm currently at 130GS for this game (and working on Endless)

I would hate to be unable to complete it because of this

The achievement guide has the best general strategy, just use the easier, early levels to get some hyper cubes and power gems and save them until the later levels. If you get enough of them then if you get stuck you can blow them up and destroy a huge chunk of the grid. You'll also get plenty of points which may or may not be enough to finish the level, it depends.

Since you can never run out of moves the computer gives you free ones so you can keep going. If you don't see anything obvious then look towards the top of the grid as that is where they usually are.

Yes, looking at the top is usually the thing to do UNLESS you have an hyper-cube in your game... then the computer takes into account that you can play this cube, and sometimes it doesn't give you a line at the top...

So this strategy of boosting in the first level doesn't really work, especially in hyper mode, where doing a 4x or 5x combo completes the level...

This might work for Action, but then again, you usually have to use them anyway before the harder levels, because the game doesn't give you any new lines...

P.S. Does someone actually have this achievement (Hyper, not Action) ??

This is one of the more annoying achievements. I feel like there's a lot of luck involved with it, but keeping an eye on the top rows seems to be a good idea.

Did this within 6 days of getting it. Pure luck and hyper cubes are a godsend.

Completing Hyper is the only thing I have left to complete this game ! Considering me and my girlfriend played over 200hrs on this, I would like to 200G it !

All I can say is take into consideration everyone elses' suggestions and hope that you get lucky once.

A great thing to do at this point (you having played 200 hours) would be to stop playing temporarily and pick something else up. I'd suggest either playing another puzzle game or picking up a book puzzle like Sudoku or just plain word searches. This way, you're still strengthening your ability to find things quickly, and relaxing from Bejeweled at the same time.

After about a week-long break, come back to the game and see if you can't do it completely relaxed. I get stuck in games all the time, and it always helps to take a break for a while and come back to it.

I hate and love this mode at the same time
When i can make a big combo im so lucky and motivated.
But when i can read "Time Up" i could cry
I played this Mode over 10 hours and yesterday i was the first time in level 7. Have it maybe a glitch, that i get the achievement, when i finished level 7?
My Twilight Mode was so. I have just finished 9 levels but i got this.

edit:

YEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSS i got it right now.

Achievement unlocked
20G Super Mode

i thought i couldnt read that ever.
but now haha i got it im so fucking proud xDDD

I hate Hyper mode with a passion..

It's the only mode standing in my way of finishing this game, I can't get beyond Level 7.

Glad to see that are other players out there with the same problem. once i thought i never get endless mode, but now the last achievement is hyper mode, and i cant get past Level 5....

But i hope its the same as in finity mode, the achievement came after level 7, did not have to do level 8. so i hope its the exact same thing in hyper mode.
