OBSESSED!!!

I love word games and this one is my new obsession.. Got my mom addicted also! Love this game!
Love it

Good challenging game
Too many ads!
by Cross letters on 2019/08/17 09:02
I used to love this game for so many reasons. Now, the constant ads have ruined all the fun. I would pay a premium for an ad free version if there were one.

Very fun crossword game. I like the sound effects, graphics, and background music! Helps keep me on top of my vocabulary!
Cody Cross gets an A!
by gjquail on 2019/08/16 22:20
I play many word games and this is the best one. I like the way solving one word sends letters to help solve other words. I played for many weeks before figuring out how to use my accruing points. Guess I didn’t read instructions! That only meant I keep a good supply of points just in case... Hint: Siri can be very helpful too ...
Great for the brain

Fun game, but the ads are far too annoying to make it worth it. The sound settings don’t silence them, which would make them tolerable, and there is not an option to opt out. Many other word games out there that are fun and far less irritating
Very entertaining

Cody Cross
by Pepatrick49 on 2019/08/13 13:09
I have lived this game from the beginning ! It is a word game that actually makes your brain think! Words come that you had long forgotten but when you see them you go back to a teacher or a friend to have you this word many years ago. When I first started the games were very plentiful and went in for months! Now it is only a few every month! I am sure doing these puzzles is not easy but from my end it is very disappointing to play then suddenly they are done! I check everyday to see if it’s back and am so upset when it isn’t! It almost makes me want to stop playing. I can’t decide if I’m happier doing some or more disappointed that it’s done! Please get Cody back on track with more continuing games!

Too many clues
by allclass10 on 2019/08/12 03:53
Game is fun and a great teaching too as well. We would like fewer hints with the letters filled into other words. Then we can give it 5 stars!
Great game
by Pat F.B. on 2019/08/12 03:22
I really enjoy this game, but what is with the stupid question asking you to rate the question - fun or boring. Serves no purpose that I can see. Would have given 5 stars if it weren’t for that question. Just don’t get it!!
Fun

Makes One Think
by EmmaLoise on 2019/08/08 21:09
I am enjoying this game because it keeps my brain strong and I have learned things too. I like how it is easier to put letters in an answer without a lot of spacing. The block just moves to the next empty space.
Way too many Ads!!
by Exponet on 2019/08/07 15:06
This is a really fun and challenging game that I do love to play. However, the ads after every puzzle is soooo excessive!! Plus it’s the same ads over and over again. I don’t play it as much anymore because of the excessive ads! I would play it more and recommend it, if the ads were more sporadic. I would love to recommend this game, I just can’t because of the excessive ads!! So in case I was vague, this game is a flop because of the ads...
Was great
by binkals on 2019/08/07 13:47
It was great until I lost all of my leveles. I went from 53 to 2 ina night and it also does not recognize that I have a subscription and still plays adds. Deleted and unsubscribes.
Awesome

Didn’t care to play
by Kranium13 on 2019/08/06 16:45
I didn’t even play the game. It takes too long to get to the actual game with the opening.
Some questions doesn’t even relate to the answer at all
by 青牛绿窝 on 2019/08/06 03:26
It’s a good game overall, but you need to improve on whoever writes the questions. I’ve found quite a few questions that doesn’t even really have the same/related meaning as the answer/word.

Opinion
by Mama Foltz on 2019/08/05 17:49
I am enjoying the game but wish it were horizontal rather than vertical on my I Pad. I would find it easier to type the letters.
To many ads that you CAN’T skip
by Jbkos on 2019/08/05 15:52
The game is extremely addictive and fun but having a ad in between EVERY puzzle and not being able to skip 90% of them is a huge turn off of the game. Please do something so your fan base continues to play and support.

Crosswords for the clueless, or accomplished!
by FixThisAlready! on 2019/08/04 13:05
I absolutely love this game. I enjoy crosswords, but I am the worst player ever! My brain just shuts down. Some people are very serious about them and there is a hard mode for you. For me there is the easy, simple mode. I thought it would be too simple to enjoy, but it’s not. Finally, a crossword that is for all of us. I try to always have it to amuse myself and relax.
Needs a bit of work
by Inkali Nichole on 2019/08/04 13:03
It’s super fun and addicting, but frankly the three thousand ads- some of which go on for nearly a minute and some immediately take you to the App Store even when you hit the exit button- are ANNOYING. It’s absolutely ridiculous. I want to rate this five stars but when there’s an ad after every single puzzle and they go on so long, it really takes away from the fun. I haven’t come across any glitches or anything so that’s awesome at least.
Kids Game

Propaganda machine disguised as a game
by Galloway17 on 2019/08/03 00:21
Cody Cross is actually a fun game with just the right level of challenge. But it is fundamentally an agenda-driven Leftist tool which I wouldn’t let my children play. Each level has some subtle globalist master clue like “climate change”, but it was when I got to “Territory invaded and occupied by a nation” as the clue for “Colony” when realized just how bald the agenda was. An absolute shame.

Ads Galore
by Cat1131 on 2019/08/02 06:40
The game has always had its minor problems for me (illogical answers, repetitive, occasionally biased clues/answers), but I’ve still enjoyed it a great deal. However, the ads have become completely obnoxious. I don’t play nearly as much as I used to because a huge percentage of my playing time is now spent watching ads. I would gladly pay a one-time fee for no ads, like many apps offer. The costs of this app are astronomical, though. I imagine that eventually I’ll stop playing all together. I see many other users making similar comments, but I imagine that profits will take precedence.

Too many ads
by Bobbybadd on 2019/08/01 13:56
Don't get me wrong, I really like this game but the ads are getting ridiculous. Thirty second ads after each level is too much. Plus as I was playing today, in the middle of a level it went to a thirty second ad. Not cool

Love playing this game but the ads are crazy. Tooo many, especially when you continue to play and it’s the same ad to a game you already have.

Too many long ads!
by Pat90732 on 2019/07/31 05:46
Game is fun and well done but way too many long, repetitive ads and way too expensive to get rid of the. $3.99 a month? Come on! I can avoid some of the ads by shutting off WiFi, but that’s a pain. $3.99 a year I’d do, but good grief!
Only one thing would make it better!
by momylisa on 2019/07/31 02:14
Please offer an ad-free option.
Make it international
by Geisha1 on 2019/07/30 22:18
I enjoy this game very much and am pretty well read. However, many of these questions are from the British language or perspective. That makes it almost unfair for anyone else for certain questions.

Love game, HATE Toy Blast ads
by PICOBOY BIRDY on 2019/07/30 13:48
For the past two days, between each level, ToyBlast ads with multiple screens run. They are long and can’t be avoided. I really enjoy CodyCross, but am ready to delete it if they continue to run only the lengthy Toy Blast ads. The developer should be monitoring what is running on their site!
Too many LONG commercials...
by SpiffyGal on 2019/07/30 04:26
...for really dumb games! Is there no way to pay a fee so I can enjoy this great game commercial free?? Love the game but HATE the horribly long ads for games that I would NEVER consider!!
Define the answer!
by No Gun Lover on 2019/07/30 00:54
While I agree with another reviewer on the overall game, the background is a bit cluttered for me. AND I’d love to see a step at the end of a puzzle that EXPLAINS the answer, Wormhole, Edwardian Era etc. What an incredible opportunity to complete the education process in addition to sharpening spelling skills. Please consider as this would keep this game totally Five Star!

Frustrating Ads
by WellingtonIV on 2019/07/28 21:02
I enjoy the game, although like many users have already stated, the clues are sometimes obscure. My issue is with the Lumen8 ads that lock up the game; sometimes the ads run with no problem and at other times the ads do no open and freeze, leaving you unable to play the game.
Interruptions
by chs1113 on 2019/07/28 20:17
In between my games I keep getting advertisements for other games and I find it annoying.
Fun Word/knowledge/trivia game
by retiredpitmom on 2019/07/28 20:15
I enjoy playing this game a lot. Very rarely am I stuck for an answer but many times I have to think hard for the answer. I like that it is easy to get hints and that you are helped along the way by answering other questions correctly.

Irritating ads
by dha1957 on 2019/07/27 18:37
I wish that there was a version without ads. Although I don’t mind playing the game, the ads will probably make me stop. It feels like the more you play, the ads keep getting longer.
Love at first sight, but.....
by Sall223 on 2019/07/27 13:44
I want to give this game 5 stars but the further up on the ladder I get, the more the questions are just a repeat of previous levels. With everything there is to know in this great big world, why all the repeats? Sorry Cody Cross, i may be deleting this game for good. 😢

So many ads now, too much!
by wisdomdivine on 2019/07/26 14:47
I’ve been playing this game for awhile now and it WAS fun, even with overlooking the fact that some of the words are wrong for the clues. But now...THERE ARE WAY TOO MANY ADS! Why do I have to see an ad after every. single. puzzle?? And I can’t exit out of them anymore. It’s getting to the point where I don’t really want to play anymore and delete the app. I known ads are how most companies get paid to keep a free game going, but come on...after every single puzzle?!? It’s ridiculous! It didn’t used to be like that and now it’s ad overload.
Addictive!
by Fancycats65 on 2019/07/26 03:29
I just started playing this game a couple of days ago, and I’m already hooked! It’s a great game, love it!
Terrible.
by Jillophd on 2019/07/25 01:56
The clues and words are historically inaccurate and scientifically false. You need a fact-checker obviously. The game play might be fun, but this isn’t even correct.

Good Game
by lenard hofstedter on 2019/07/23 12:36
I normally really liked CodyCross because it was a game that did not need a WiFi connection to start. This means I could take it everywhere and play it everywhere without using WiFi. Ever since the new update on CodyCross you are not able to do this.
Absolute FUN
by Hunibe on 2019/07/23 10:22
This app is the best game app I have ever played If you like trivia and word games you will love this.
Way too many ads, not worth it
by Boomergirl420 on 2019/07/23 07:07
I really like the game when I’m actually playing it. But there’s three to five ads just to play five levels and the ads can be really long. If there was less ads or shorter ads then maybe I would play. I deleted it; this game isn’t worth all the lengthy ads.
Great...but!
by BudCann on 2019/07/23 06:12
This is an engaging word game but it has very annoying advertisements.
ADS ADS AND MOREADS.
by Iriesluvv on 2019/07/23 01:42
I just wrote a review giving this game 4 stars. It’s fun and challenging. HOWEVER it BOMBARDS the player with ads. Literally. I want to play the game, not waste my time watching an ad after completing every game...literally EVERY GAME. Give your players an option of opting out of them. Most of us are focused on the game, NOT ads for slot machine games up the wazoo.
launching issues

i downloaded this game yesterday and was playing it all night and this morning. i went back on it just before and every time the app starts to launch, it closes out. i checked to see if i needed to update it and i don’t. i restarted my phone also and it still isn’t working :(
Great game!!

Great Game
by Zepfan1021 on 2019/06/28 03:22
I don’t normally write reviews on here, but I felt that this game actually deserves one. I’ve downloaded a lot of different word games/cross word puzzle apps and none of them come close to this one. The graphics in this game are colorful and crisp; this alone makes it standout amongst other word game apps. The gameplay is smooth and clues are just challenging enough to make you think, but remain fun (there is a “hard” setting if you find it too easy). You are gifted 2 hints daily, which I’ve actually found to be enough. There are ads between each puzzle, however, you’re not forced to watch the entire ad to continue and I’ve not found them too bothersome. I’ve not had to spend any money to play, which is a huge plus. Seriously, if you enjoy crossword puzzles and word games give this one a try. I think you’ll be as pleasantly surprised as I was. Kudos to the developers for making a wonderful game. I look forward to continuing play!
My Sight of the Game
by DULCEelo on 2019/06/20 02:04
I’m gonna try to make this short and simple. The thought of a game like this is nice and cool however the clues are very unhelpful. I’m a teenager playing this and the ad said “ Play this for fifteen minutes every day and you’ll get better memory” or something also those line but I have been playing this for quite a while and it’s not helpful at all. The easy levels aren’t really easy. The game says for 4+ but not even a six year old would be able to play this because it’s extremely hard even for me. If you weren’t taught certain words growing up then this game is just too hard to play. Honestly please make easier levels. Also maybe the player isn’t ready for adventure mode and wants to do the easy pack but isn’t allowed to use money on games like me. What then? What if I’m not ready for adventure mode and want to go easy on myself but can’t? Will I just be restricted from the easy levels forever? Maybe premium could be used for different things other then levels, because that’s like playing Candy Crush but you have to pay to go past level 50 or so. Maybe it could be for more free hints. But having for the levels really restricts the player. That’s it I just wanted to say that now bye.
Love/Hate Cody
by TeacherDRP on 2019/02/22 02:49
The game is fun, and the challenges vary from almost ridiculously easy to frustratingly hard. The “space cadet” background format is a bit silly for someone like me who is in my seventh decade, but it is tolerable. Some of the clues are a bit inaccurate, if not misleading, and there is no immediate way to report or challenge them. I taught English for over forty years, so I have a bit of insight regarding definitions. All that said, the ads are the most annoying aspect. As a disclaimer, I fully realize that many other games have the same ads with the exact same problem. If a game cannot “hook” you in ten to fifteen seconds, the remaining fifteen aren’t going to either. Most annoying are the ones that you “X” out of only to have a second screen with a wait to hit the second “X.” What are these ad designers thinking? Has it occurred to them that these persistent and duplex ads actually may have the psychologically reverse effect of “I will never download that annoying thing.” Thus, hook me in fifteen seconds or less, or forget it. By the way, my wife and I play the same games on our IPads as a competition which makes for a lot of fun except that she wins too often.
Good Improvement System
by Digdawgmike on 2019/04/12 02:32
A while back I had tried playing this game, but some of the questions were really easy and the game was rather boring due to the lack of challenge. However I saw an ad for Cody Cross while I was playing another mobile game, so I figured I might as well try it out again. Turns out the developers for this app added in a review after each level. After each level it asks if a certain question out of that level is fun or boring and they use this customer feedback to exterminate low-scoring questions, and it seems that it has made the game far more challenging and interesting! I have enjoyed this game so much that I haven’t put my phone down since I started playing it, four months ago! Karen if you’re reading this please let me have weekend visits with our kids y’all mean the world to me I promise I’ll get off my phone and spend time with them. But due to the addictiveness of this game I had to give it four stars and not five. Yes this game is fun, but the cost of losing your wife and kids is not worth it.
A Cross between Word find and 😁crossword game..
by 1stCeye on 2019/06/25 23:51
I love this game! It has helped me find words I had problems remembering! I love the chance to think up the correct words and if I can’t, then getting other words causes letters to fly into words waiting for me to get them! You can win coins that allow a “li’l guy” astronaut to award you letters at the cost of one coin per letter, so there is a lot of help here! The graphics as you travel from section to section are amazing...you can choose to play free or buy a subscription....there is plenty of play for Free. I have been playing for nearly 2 months...just about every day...Support is great and (ads are few and x makes them go away, fast!) I wish all games did this, I would be playing them, too...but there is a lot of fun here...A family could help, shouting out the words...how fast can your family get one level/5 games? “TRY IT...YOU’LIKE IT”💜💜💜😀😀😀
A little too hard
by reven the sith master on 2019/06/02 06:05
Okay I’m not complaining about the game it’s wonderfully made!! I love the way when you start out it shows Cody with his little tablet and when I’m spelling the words it makes me feel like I’m actually on this new planet with my tablet discovering stuff! But being the age I am still young and in the tween years almost teen at 11 almost twelve some of the words are a little hard it would be better if you made the words like common words like flower or computer common words that every body knows about I am not aloud on you tube or google and what I’m aloud to watch is very restricted so when it asks me stuff like what was the dance that this person did I’m like I don’t even know who that is I’m stuck on level three!! I tried some of the other ones but it’s a little hard please can you make the words a little easier at least make a thing we’re you can change the difficulty because I know some people like a challenge I don’t know what all the people are complaining about they do forget you have a family to provide for thank you 😊
Fun, but needs improvement
by +jetthehawk+ on 2018/11/17 22:22
I have really enjoyed this game so far, but the main reason I write this is so I can give some criticism. First, I feel the difficulty goes all over the place. Going from six- to nine-letter clues is way harder than it sounds. If the first part of the game had only six or seven letters, and the eight or nine letter puzzles were saved for later, the game would be much more approachable. Also, some of the clues are just far too much out there. I feel like literally nobody would know some of these obscure clues without Googling the answer. The most frustrating thing though is the fact that the clues don’t tell you how many words are in each answer. Normal crossword puzzles tell you if the answer has more than one word, so why not this game? There are so many clues where I’ve been stumped since the puzzles make it look like it’s always one word, but many times it’s two or even three. If I had known that, I could have gotten the answer easily. If the devs see this, please fix these issues. It would make the game better for anyone.
I adore this game!

If you’re looking for a simple and fun way to waste some extra time, this game is it! (Tbh I play it whether or not I have time to waste!) It’s controls are very straightforward—you use your phones built-in keyboard. The duration of the game seems to be limitless and so does the diversity of questions. I am on puzzle 339 and I’m still not tired of it. I am disagreeing with some of the other reviews by saying this, but I haven’t found any of the hints to be agitating or lacking if you will. Even if they might be misleading, that’s just part of the fun! It is a puzzle after all. Nothing in this game causes me anything but joy! The ads do put a slight damper on things, but the game has an offline mode which gets rid of most of them for me. I appreciate the developers doing a good game by producing such a great game. Keep it up guys (and gals)!
Good game
by Nkflekakcmzl on 2019/04/09 18:23
Overall it’s a really fun game, I’m on Group 97 right now so I’ve played quite a bit. There’s only two things I don’t like, which are 1. If you want to remove ads, you have to buy a subscription where you get more levels and stuff, but you have to pay a certain fee every week/month/year or whatever and it’s way too much money for what it is. And 2. There are too many Christianity related questions. And no, I’m not complaining just because I’m not religious. If there were questions about other religions that balanced out the ones about Christianity, I would be okay with that. But thus far, I have had absolutely no questions about any religion except Christianity. Plus there’s a Christianity related question in nearly every question set and it just seems a little excessive. But overall, it’s a fun game. I’ll probably continue playing it for a while.
Great game!
by Mabpagan on 2019/02/19 02:33
I've read through some of the reviews, and I just don't see the problems that those people do. I enjoy the fact that puzzles of different lengths occur randomly, so that one time you have 6-letter words, and the next 9-letter words. I have run across very few words where I needed to consult Google. I've used it perhaps six times. I haven't found any odd spellings of words. I like the fact that the number of words in an answer aren't indicated--it makes me think. Most of the levels have been pretty easy so far. It's a lot easier than the New York Times crosswords, which I appreciate. And I have no objection to words like asylum, global warming, climate change, etc. Conservatives must be hyper-sensitive--or have guilty consciences--to consider those part of some leftist conspiracy. Finally, any child old enough to play this game successfully is old enough to be exposed to the words the puzzles contain. The ads get to be a little annoying, but the developers need to be able to generate income so that they can continue to add levels and develop new games. Too many times people forget that the people who make the games also have families to support. This is a fun, addictive game. I highly recommend it!
Once-fun game now ravaged by annoying interactive ads.
by paintballduke22 on 2019/04/05 14:34
I never leave reviews on apps, but I needed to for this one. I have been playing and enjoying CodyCross for at least a year now. There has always been ads in this game, but typically you could get through a few puzzles before a single ad would pop up. As a fellow developer, I found this reasonable. Recently, this game has changed to 1 video ad AND 1 interactive ad for every puzzle you solve (ranging from ~7-15 words). There is also no way to pay to disable ads, which should be easy functionality here in 2019. At this point it feels like a barrage of ads with no end in sight. Thanks for the fun while it lasted, I want to like your game but your user experience is going down down down. The premise of this game is that of a crossword puzzle with a little twist. When you solve a word, typically this triggers a few letters elsewhere in the puzzle to solve themselves to help you out. The character is whimsical and completely irrelevant.
What a Gem
by RoseRamirez on 2019/06/27 09:04
I absolutely never leave app reviews, but I just could not go without recommending this wonderful game. This is the most beautiful game I’ve played in years. The graphics are gorgeous, smooth, and full of color! The puzzles are challenging but not overwhelming, making it possible to progress relatively easy. Finally, the thing that really surprised me the most, was the beautiful little music notes that play as you type out puzzle answers. It’s like you’re playing a tiny, little children’s xylophone. It sounds like a lullaby and is the sweetest, most relaxing thing to hear at the end of a stressful day. This game was incredibly well thought out. It has been at least half a decade since I’ve seen this much dedication put in to a mobile game. Give this game a try!
Cody Cross
by Pepatrick49 on 2019/08/13 13:09
I have lived this game from the beginning ! It is a word game that actually makes your brain think! Words come that you had long forgotten but when you see them you go back to a teacher or a friend to have you this word many years ago. When I first started the games were very plentiful and went in for months! Now it is only a few every month! I am sure doing these puzzles is not easy but from my end it is very disappointing to play then suddenly they are done! I check everyday to see if it’s back and am so upset when it isn’t! It almost makes me want to stop playing. I can’t decide if I’m happier doing some or more disappointed that it’s done! Please get Cody back on track with more continuing games!
Better Game
by jegrinstead on 2019/07/13 01:42
Unfortunately I used to like this game. I’m getting more and more frustrated because I can’t find some the answers. I am in the Transport group, Puzzle 3. There are two answers that I can’t find. This has happened several times in past puzzles. Why is it you put questions in puzzles but for some reason the answers are not found. I thought I was in the “easy” section, but I’m beginning to think that there are really no easy ones. There’s no reason to have a game ad after every question, it’s annoying. After about a year I decided to try this came again. I find it easier to play and have been able to answer the questions or am able to find the answers. Thank you developers
Responsive to suggestions
by QuinOTK on 2018/07/26 22:41
Today I came across a clue that said “conscientious ___ refuse to perform military service”. As a 13-year Army Veteran as a conscientious objector and an Infantry Medic, I was quite offended. I challenged the definition and, initially, was told it was in accordance with Webster’s. However, once I clarified the definition and offered an alternative, “Conscientious ___ refuse to bear arms in military service”, they understood and were submitting for a change. I am proud to have effected this small change, and it says much about the designers. They want to create something fun and dignified. Thank you, fanatee, for acknowledging those of us who served while still respecting our own morals. High marks for every aspect of this game and its creators!!!!
Fun, but could be better
by 5280Guitar on 2018/04/13 12:58
I like word puzzles in general, and I really like this game overall. The clues are generally a nice mix of obvious, and “I need to think about that some.” Where I think this could really set itself apart, and where it really disappoints me, is after solving these puzzles and revealing an interesting word like “tetraodontic” or a term I wasn’t familiar with (Helladic period), I feel like I’m left hanging. There is no explanation of what the word or term is, or any hyperlinks to wiki entries to expand on the word/concept. Sure, I can look them up myself, but then I’m less likely to return to the game. Some of the concepts that are brought out in the game (globalization, coastal erosion, sustainability) are particularly relevant for our times. Not making it easier to learn more seems to be a missed opportunity.
Some clues too generic
by Seadoobie on 2019/02/03 21:50
I understand that it might be difficult to find unique words that fit the puzzles and you’ll have to look some up here and there. Usually you’ll get enough letters to be able to make a guess, but lately I’ve had entire puzzles where I’ve never heard of the clues or answers or random peoples names. I’m on level 245 now and finding myself having to search more answers than I’m able to figure out. Some player on a minor league sports team in a third world country or a Czech protestors name etc. There’s maybe a handful of people in the world that could have a random guess at some of these. I would also guess that English isn’t the first language of the developers. Some of the singular/plural, future/past tense etc is off. So unless you know what oudekerk and greatauk and other words your spell checker won’t recognize you’ll end up frustrated.
Do Not Subscribe!
by GraceyManor on 2019/03/22 05:45
Subscribers beware! I did a one month subscription; 8 days later connected to Facebook & lost all access (even though it still shows I am subscribed). Prior to connecting to FB, there was no prompt stating you will lose access. I sent an email this morning hoping the developers can fix the problem...as of yet, have not heard back. Update: I still have not rec’d an email back from the developer. Canceled subscription & requested refund from iTunes. **Even though it’s the weekend, the developer should monitor email, especially regarding subscriptions** Update: You have my email, along with a picture of my subscription transaction. Perhaps you should check your junk email... I have noticed from past reviews where others have emailed you, you have responded w/ the same excuse, “I cannot find your email...” AND Restore does not fix the subscription; tried it before emailing you. Update: You ignore/do not respond to emails bc they do not match screen names? So let me get this straight - if your customers have issues with your game, do not email, instead write a review? You should respond to ALL emails from customers that are having difficulty with your game (esp. when it involves money); not ignore emails bc the names do not match the review. Ignoring emails is never the way to go. Apple refunded the money.
Used to love it now I can’t stand it!!
by Angelatom2015 on 2018/02/03 16:53
Please remove all these ads that keep popping up or I will delete this game, it’s not even a fun game anymore. I’m on 128 in Culinary Arts I’ve gone so far in this game and I've really enjoyed playing this game, but all of the ads have taken all the fun out of it. This used to be a great game and I loved it but after the update it’s awful and full of ads after every level. I liked it before when I could watch a few second video and get free hints, but this is ridiculous. If you can’t make all of the extra ads go away I will have to delete the game and I would hate to I’m in Transports group 110 but I can’t even go to the board without yet another ad popping up and I just got to that group. Come on seriously!! Please fix it I really don’t want to delete it and I can’t stand to play it anymore it just sits there I keep hoping I’ll go into my game and the ads will be gone but nope.
Love!
by MysticMom on 2018/02/12 23:06
My husband and I play this together every night at bedtime. We are addicted and unfortunately so close to finishing the levels! I have seriously considered purchasing more, though! I do have a few comments, suggestions. We have found certain topics seem to be very repetitious...The Simpsons, for one. So tired of them. There are also a lot of terms that are not universal and are obviously from England. It helps that my husband went to school there, but it would still be nice if you used the most universal terms and spellings. Overall, we greatly enjoy the game despite the annoyance of the new ad placement. We can deal with them though they did spoil the flow of the game.
Great game
by Not Savvy on 2019/07/07 07:17
I love the fact that by finding one answer you get some clues to other answers. By only needing to by tokens now and then, I will continue to play this game. I have already learned new things from it and remembered old things. I believe I am becoming addictive to this one because it challenges my knowledge of events and other things. In the Undersea World, it would be nice to see some pictures of some of the fish or places that were found. I don’t know what some, actually, many of them are so it would be nice to see what they look like. Please keep this game the way it is with a balance of easy and somewhat difficult puzzles.
Super fun!
by xandeinerseitex on 2018/12/18 06:36
I really do love this game. A lot of times I’ll put on a podcast and just sit back and play through a few puzzle groups. The only reasons I gave it a four-star rating is because first, the amount of ads you’re made to watch is absurd, and they’re usually 30 seconds and are totally unskippable. I get needing to make money off your app, but it’s a little ridiculous. The second reason is that some of the clues are really vague and could be a little clearer. As it is, there are always a handful that are oddly niche, and I’m waiting to finish other answers and have the letters fill in in the hopes that I figure it out. Googling it takes the fun out of it, but sometimes, it’s your only choice. And some of the clues are so poorly chosen, or frustrating as a whole. For example, the one I just got today was, “Transatlantic ___ stands out in San Francisco skyline”. The answer was “pyramid”. Apparently there are no more remarkable pyramids in the world than an insurance building. Overall, I’d highly recommend the game. My two complaints aren’t even close to enough to make me stop playing. I lose hours to this game and I don’t even mind.
Really enjoyable (:
by Fungirl461 on 2018/09/23 05:12
This game is pretty fun if you like puzzle games. I’m in love with the music and the sound effects, really make it enjoyable. I do think it’s a little more challenging for me but it helps me think a lot more to figure the puzzle out, if that makes sense. What I wish could happen is when I am trying to share to facebook, I would actually get the 15 coins that it says I can get when I share to facebook. I just wish I didn’t have to bombard my friends timelines with posts when all I really want is the 15 coins it says I can get. That’s really all I have a problem with. It’s a really fun, pretty game. I also love the little characters (:
Really fun and makes you think....
by Chloe K's Mommy on 2018/02/08 06:18
Four stars because I haven’t had the game long and still learning the ropes. Anyway, I downloaded this game a few days ago because an advertisement for it popped up on my VeryDice game and it seemed like it’d be a fun challenge....after playing I can say the game is fun to play, makes you use your brain, and really helps you escape for a little while. I am only planning on playing the free version because honestly the ads aren’t that big of a deal and $10 a month for a game is just not something I really want to do, I’d rather put that in to my savings for my daughter or something more tangible later....otherwise I’d totally recommend this if you want to test your brain and enjoy it.
I used to love codycross
by Smorris70 on 2017/11/16 14:19
I used to love this game and got several people playing it because they’d ask what it was. Im on level 91 of circus. Then they updated the other day and now its terrible. I’m made to watch an ad after every puzzle and I am not happy about it. Before the update you only had to watch an ad at the end of a level and you could choose to watch an ad for tokens in between if you wanted. Now the ads come after every puzzle even if i choose to continue. If i choose continue it doesn’t even give me the tokens for watching! And each ad is 30 seconds long that’s ridiculous. I’m still deciding if it’s enough to make me uninstall the game. The update came with no warning that this would happen, it said “bug fixes”. So dishonest! Sad that your greed has gotten in the way of what used to be a great game.
Too many commercials!!!!
by slowtorque on 2018/11/13 17:57
My wife and I really like this game. But there are way to many and too long commercials! Solve a puzzle and you have to watch a 30 second commercial. Exit a level and again, 15-30 second commercial. We would gladly pay for a commercial free version, but could not find it. When I get a 30 second commercial (or a commercial with no timer), I turn the game off and don’t play again for several hours or even a couple days. Hope your advertisers see my post, because they are paying you for nothing. I got tired of the ads before and deleted the game. I was hoping they fixed this, but it looks like I will be deleting it again.
Very Solid
by crelish1 on 2019/02/19 01:48
I feel that this game has a much better balance than some other mobile games when it comes to making money vs. preserving the player experience. The ads aren’t to common and the game offers plenty of free ways to get tokens. In some ways it is sad that a game deserves five starts for not being completely pay to win, but it is still extremely nice. Beyond just the principle of micro transactions, the gameplay is enjoyable and lives up to my expectations. The openness to feedback and the option to turn on hard mode are both great. Overall, ignoring some very small things, it is what a mobile game should be.
End of an era...
by GameJer on 2019/04/11 21:16
This game was one of my favorites for a long time. I reached level 472 and had 1089 tokens. The update from a few weeks ago caused the game to stop working. If you try to play any part of the game it immediately closes down. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, I do can make the game operable. The developer said they would help me restore my game to the current level and token amount but never replied after my initial contact. I guess it’s time to move on to something else. UPDATE: the Developers reached out to me and restored my game to where I was before it crashed. Probably the best customer service I’ve heard of for any game app. THANKS!!!
I have a love hate relationship with this game
by liz.chassin on 2019/05/21 11:15
I love playing this game in the morning on my way to school. I have a 30 minute ride so it occupies me for that time. It also kinda wakes me up and gets me ready for school. There’s a few things I hate. The fact that you can one mute very few ads. Please make it so I can mute all ads. I don’t really mind watching ads because that’s how I found this games but when I listen to music it’s pretty load and the ad would hurt my ears or ruin my music. Also, I think that the players should get more than 2 clues per day because I use them kind of a lot so it would be nice to get some more. Other then those 2 things I really like this game.
Favorite game, needs some modifications
by Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabby on 2019/04/25 19:03
Let me just start off by saying that this is one of my favorite games of the moment. I’m constantly playing. I think it’s fun and addictive and give just the right amount of hints without making it too challenging or too easy. I also really like that you have the option to get your tokens back after you use them almost every time. However, I HATE the keyboard. 99% of the time, I have to type my answer 3-4 times because I am so accustomed to my iPhone keyboard, and this keyboard is not the same layout, so I hit the wrong button CONSTANTLY. Also, the hints being located on the keyboard is a bit strange too. Also, something to note, this game definitely feels as though it was created by non American developers. There isn’t necessarily anything wrong with that, it just makes it a bit more challenging at times because I am unfamiliar with the terminology for some things. That being said, the game will acknowledge when a term is more “American” and will address that in the hint. Overall, GREAT game. Just PLEASE fix the keyboard.
ISSUE RESOLVED❣️Revised Review
by Angel in Thrall on 2019/02/23 19:47
I had given this game a very poor review just a few days ago, because of all the ads. I have a subscription, and was still getting a crazy amount of ads, to the point where I couldn’t even play the game. I am very happy to say that this issue has been COMPLETELY RESOLVED! I am pleasantly stunned, I must say. The response to my previous review was pretty much immediate, and was very professional and understanding, despite my harsh critique. The issue with the ads has vanished. I am now really enjoying the game, and it has become my favorite! This is what customer service is all about!
Fun but full of subliminal propaganda
by Millany7 on 2018/11/28 01:13
I really liked playing this game. The constant ads are a pain but oh well. However, the thing I have a problem with is the theme of debatable political topics. It's not in your face but certainly obvious to anyone that pays attention, and not good for young minds to be exposed to. You'll have clues or answers connected to terms/ people that can be controversial. Such as: globalization, UN, global warming, immigration, a well-known GMO pusher, fascism, on and on. I don't think we'd see as many of these types of themes if our political divide wasn't so strong, and thus the attempt of indoctrination at every corner. The worst by far was a clue that lead to the first or last name (can't remember) of Aleister Crowley. Yes, the one that's is the founder of a "satanic-like" church. Named the "wickedest man in the world". Ask yourself, why on earth would his name belong in a game that children may play? Think about that.
Good, but becomes stale
by Jakoqowidjebjenxjxksnd on 2018/07/10 04:43
I’ll preface by saying I found this game to be very fun. So fun that I’ve gone through 625 puzzles. It’s an Interesting word game that’s normally not hard, and very forgiving. However every so often I find myself looking up answers. The questions can get very generic. For example, I just had one that was along the lines of “A dish made with ground beef and other ingredients”. As you can tell, it’s hard to narrow it down, so you absolutely have to answer other questions and hope you get a letter pop up. I’m also 125 “groups” in. There’s five puzzles per group, so after 625 puzzles you start to see duplicates from past puzzles. I just play it to pass the time now/
Great Game! Except With Excessive Ads
by kawaiibutts on 2019/04/24 15:38
This game is fun, albeit a few ignorant words that do not properly match due to incorrect culture knowledge. For example Nirvana being a state of mind for Buddhists and large blankets being Ponchos. However, the main problem with this game is the severely excessive ads. Every single time you exit a puzzle, you get an ad. Whether or not you’ve solved it or just keeping it for later, you will receive an ad. Most of them are skippable, but only after around 5-10 seconds. The advertisements themselves are fake as well. The advertisements for App Store games are false. They do not actually include real gameplay for these games at all. So not only do we get an excessive amount of ads, we also get fake ads.
Great Game!
by Marccrand on 2019/02/20 09:15
I really love this game, it's smart and well executed. Do I like the ads? Of course not, but I could buy a subscription and haven't so that's my choice. Some of the clues are questionably vague or strange but it's not going to stop me from playing. But a recent change sincerely has me stumped: the question at the end - was this clue/answer fun or boring? I'm not being snarky when I sincerely say I don't know what that means... Are they asking if the question was hard or easy? Do I want more clues like that? Am I enjoying the game or not? It's a simple question that shouldn't get under my skin but it drives me crazy! I'd like to help the developers but please rephrase the question so I know what you want.
LOVE this game!
by BatmanArkhamSaga on 2019/02/18 14:34
I’ve been playing this game for a while now—to the point where I’m nearly finishing the Roma section. I adore the new take on crossword puzzles, which helps me so much on the harder answers. I will admit that there are some answers that are almost impossible to answer, especially those that are only one worded clues. But, I move on to the next clues and little by little, I figure out the answer. Every time I get nervous and think there’s only one world left to do, an update comes around that has another. Thank you for this great game!
Attempting to push subliminal political messages
by Gazoney on 2018/11/02 20:36
The “Topic” for the levels in the beginning (may change later, but I’m on the tenth area and it hasn’t yet) is “Planet Earth”, however in the infinite possibilities that has, it has made references to multiple political topics. “Global Warming”, “Climate Change”, “Colonization”, “Human Migration”, “Central America” (the last two in close proximity, with “Immigrant” being an answer). At one point it had “Colony” as a word, with the definition being a group of people that are invaded by another, which is not the definition at all, but fits the pushed agenda of white people in America being “Colonizers” because of what the USA founders did to the Native Americans. I’d probably continue playing if this wasn’t so obvious, which is why I gave it two stars instead of one.
Couple Changes Would Make it 5 Stars
by RogueWonTon on 2019/07/03 15:26
I'd like to be able to click on a specific block and change that letter directly. Right now, I have to retype out the whole word and if I mistyped the last letter, it's annoying. Like if I accidentally hit "a" instead of "s" at the end, I should be able to just click back on it to fix it. I've tried hitting delete and clicking on the erroneous block, but they don't work... Cursor stays at the beginning of the word. Also, too much animation. Slows the game down. Would be great to be able to turn that off. It's flashy the first couple rounds, but now it's just boring.
Hints can be deceiving
by Millwrightwife on 2019/02/17 13:22
I love playing this game!! Some hints however are either not correct for the word or is way to easy to confuse how it was meant. Example, Cooking, French style. This leads me to believe it is something to do with French cooking. I was racking my brain trying to figure out what it was. As I got more letters I realized it was cuisine. If you didn’t already know I will tell you that cuisine is a term for a type of food, such as Indian cuisine or Italian cuisine it is not strictly a French thing. This can make things very confusing. Also it would be helpful if you let us know if an answer is more than one word. If I don’t see a gap I assume my answer is one word. It gets confusing and a little aggravating.
Ambiguity
by Dragging In the Morning on 2019/06/03 01:43
Although I am enjoying the game, it seems to me that there are enough common words in our English language to enable one to play for months without them being repeated within two days. Some of the prompts are miswritten. Advertisements are ALWAYS annoying, especially when presented over and over. WHY do we have to sit through 2-3 ads between EACH portion of a single level??? Makes no sense especially considering the ads are not really advertising because they are rarely identified as to what the game is…. I could see a 15 second ad between levels, but come on! I looked at paying to play the game, but ARE YOU SERIOUS??? $65 per year?? That's insane!!!
Cody cross by Fanatee
by dearest auntie alice on 2018/09/22 00:48
I would normally give this game five stars, because I used to love it. But recently the ads have taken over. I could be in the middle of adding the letters to a puzzle, and an pops up in the middle of it. The ads drive me crazy. They have taken over the game. I am seriously considering deleting this game and I am on level 367. Sometimes I don’t even know or understand questions about other countries. I feel like it’s a scene from Star Trek.... “ The trouble with Tribbles.” I absolutely hate advertising, so I will not purchase their products. An occasional ad might be ok, but I am getting swamped with ads as they have infested my iPad. You best get the strongest bleach and rid this game ads, so it can become the best game. dear puzzlers don’t waste your valuable time on this game until it rids itself of the advertising infestation. I used to love this game and played it constantly when I had a bad day. Now forgetta bout it! Sorry I had write this bad review. Maybe someone will read this and clean out the infestation. It just so happens it left my screen blank while I was playing a game. I can’t get it back. Is someone trying to tell me something? Alice
Great fun, with room for improvement.

I’ve immensely enjoyed the game, the difficulty is a very gradual, almost unnoticeable climb. I made it through the first 35 levels without any mandatory ads. However, when the ads started, they seem to have a tendency to glitch out the game. The last ad that popped up locked the game on a black screen that won’t go away unless you perform a hard reset of the entire phone. Very much so a hassle. Other than patching a few bugs, the only recommendation I could offer would be to add some of the extra categories to free players. I do understand that developers need to make a living, but this game is not endless for Free players.
Loved it before update
by Rabs908 on 2017/12/14 23:40
The app crashed when I was on level 60. I had to uninstall and re-download when this occurred. When I re-downloaded, I was disappointed to find out that I now must pay two tokens for every level. This was not the case before the app crashed. I’m sad to say that I will likely stop playing this game due to the changes that have been made. To update my prior review- Overall, this is a great game. I emailed the developer regarding bugs and crashes that I experienced and they got right back to me. It’s refreshing that the developers of this game are actually willing to help-thank you!
Lots of fun!
by adhharmony on 2019/04/12 16:00
I don’t usually leave reviews. Many games start out easy and fun but very quickly get to the point where you can’t even finish a level it’s so difficult or you have to spend money. So far this game isn’t like that! There are times you gotta really think hard but it’s not all the time and you don’t get frustrated that they make it impossible to progress. Having a game that’s easy enough to just play and relax yet uses the brain is a breath of fresh air! Keep it simple and fun please!!!
A Time Waster, but not that great
by Myztikal Tearz on 2018/11/23 01:14
Some of the clues were redundant and most were unimaginative. As the game goes on (I did complete to Roma, which was the last free set), it seems like the developers got bored. Over half of the clues were seeking synonyms.... tedious and boring. Some of the clues were vague that one couldn’t be certain if the answer was a noun (person) or a ‘similar’ verb, as in it was a definition. I agree with another reviewer that sometimes the answer involved several words; this was unclear as well. My final criticism is some answers had several different spellings. It was frustrating when I knew the answer, but it the correct answer was spelled differently. Two stars because I didn’t delete it immediately.
Puzzling stall-outs
by threeoutside on 2018/10/28 17:23
I like this game a lot. There is a wide variety of difficulty levels and subjects. I love looking up new words so this is just right for me. The one problem it’s presenting is that lately it just randomly freezes on me. It happens when I tap on the next puzzle in a series: the screen goes solid purple & nothing I do fixes it. The only thing that works is just turning it off and coming back hours later - in practical terms that’s usually the next day. Is this the makers’ way of telling me to put down the phone & get back to life? Is there something I’m doing wrong?
Like it, but...
by Pamkl on 2018/12/20 01:52
Since the last update, (about a month ago), the game locks up after the majority of the ads between puzzles, making it even more unstable than it was before! After the ad runs, screen goes black then main iPad screen comes up. CodyCross goes to the background and when you tap it, it has to restart and go thru that process again to play. I put up with it, cause I like the game, but...... You mentioned a few days ago to another user, that you have implemented a fix for this, but I'm not seeing it.
Good game, but...
by MusicLoverExtraordinaire on 2019/04/27 23:28
This is a good game that’s fun to play but it’s clear that English is not its creators’ first language. Many of the clues are just plain weird and some of the words and vernacular are not even of the English language. Still, it’s fun to try to figure out even though it can be tremendously frustrating at times. They need to hire an American English speaking editor. Otherwise I would give it five stars. Of course the developer responded by defending the game and asked me which words I was referring to. They would have to put me on the payroll in order to list all of their American English-speaking mistakes! It would take forever there are so many.
Love it but frustrating
by JJAmericans on 2018/04/16 03:44
I play this game everyday. I enjoy a good crossword puzzle and this one is different from The typical. But five days out of seven I can’t collect my free tokens. I have to wait two or three days to get them. It keeps telling me there is an issue with the server or my WiFi. Yet, I have no issues with other games. It is frustrating because of a week’s time I will lose eight-ten free tokens. Some days it is easy peasy but most it takes the game forever to load and that’s when I know I won’t be able to claim my tokens. I would give this game a five star rating but I just can’t. It isn’t worth that, yet, to me.

I used to love this game for so many reasons. Now, the constant ads have ruined all the fun. I would pay a premium for an ad free version if there were one.

by gjquail on 2019/08/16 22:20
I play many word games and this is the best one. I like the way solving one word sends letters to help solve other words. I played for many weeks before figuring out how to use my accruing points. Guess I didn’t read instructions! That only meant I keep a good supply of points just in case... Hint: Siri can be very helpful too ...

Fun game, but the ads are far too annoying to make it worth it. The sound settings don’t silence them, which would make them tolerable, and there is not an option to opt out. Many other word games out there that are fun and far less irritating

by Pepatrick49 on 2019/08/13 13:09
I have lived this game from the beginning ! It is a word game that actually makes your brain think! Words come that you had long forgotten but when you see them you go back to a teacher or a friend to have you this word many years ago. When I first started the games were very plentiful and went in for months! Now it is only a few every month! I am sure doing these puzzles is not easy but from my end it is very disappointing to play then suddenly they are done! I check everyday to see if it’s back and am so upset when it isn’t! It almost makes me want to stop playing. I can’t decide if I’m happier doing some or more disappointed that it’s done! Please get Cody back on track with more continuing games!

Game is fun and a great teaching too as well. We would like fewer hints with the letters filled into other words. Then we can give it 5 stars!

by Pat F.B. on 2019/08/12 03:22

by EmmaLoise on 2019/08/08 21:09
I am enjoying this game because it keeps my brain strong and I have learned things too. I like how it is easier to put letters in an answer without a lot of spacing. The block just moves to the next empty space.
Way too many Ads!!
by Exponet on 2019/08/07 15:06
This is a really fun and challenging game that I do love to play. However, the ads after every puzzle is soooo excessive!! Plus it’s the same ads over and over again. I don’t play it as much anymore because of the excessive ads! I would play it more and recommend it, if the ads were more sporadic. I would love to recommend this game, I just can’t because of the excessive ads!! So in case I was vague, this game is a flop because of the ads...
Was great
by binkals on 2019/08/07 13:47
It was great until I lost all of my leveles. I went from 53 to 2 ina night and it also does not recognize that I have a subscription and still plays adds. Deleted and unsubscribes.

Some questions doesn’t even relate to the answer at all
by 青牛绿窝 on 2019/08/06 03:26
It’s a good game overall, but you need to improve on whoever writes the questions. I’ve found quite a few questions that doesn’t even really have the same/related meaning as the answer/word.

To many ads that you CAN’T skip
by Jbkos on 2019/08/05 15:52
The game is extremely addictive and fun but having a ad in between EVERY puzzle and not being able to skip 90% of them is a huge turn off of the game. Please do something so your fan base continues to play and support.

Crosswords for the clueless, or accomplished!

I absolutely love this game. I enjoy crosswords, but I am the worst player ever! My brain just shuts down. Some people are very serious about them and there is a hard mode for you. For me there is the easy, simple mode. I thought it would be too simple to enjoy, but it’s not. Finally, a crossword that is for all of us. I try to always have it to amuse myself and relax.
Needs a bit of work
by Inkali Nichole on 2019/08/04 13:03
It’s super fun and addicting, but frankly the three thousand ads- some of which go on for nearly a minute and some immediately take you to the App Store even when you hit the exit button- are ANNOYING. It’s absolutely ridiculous. I want to rate this five stars but when there’s an ad after every single puzzle and they go on so long, it really takes away from the fun. I haven’t come across any glitches or anything so that’s awesome at least.

Propaganda machine disguised as a game
by Galloway17 on 2019/08/03 00:21
Cody Cross is actually a fun game with just the right level of challenge. But it is fundamentally an agenda-driven Leftist tool which I wouldn’t let my children play. Each level has some subtle globalist master clue like “climate change”, but it was when I got to “Territory invaded and occupied by a nation” as the clue for “Colony” when realized just how bald the agenda was. An absolute shame.

Ads Galore
by Cat1131 on 2019/08/02 06:40
The game has always had its minor problems for me (illogical answers, repetitive, occasionally biased clues/answers), but I’ve still enjoyed it a great deal. However, the ads have become completely obnoxious. I don’t play nearly as much as I used to because a huge percentage of my playing time is now spent watching ads. I would gladly pay a one-time fee for no ads, like many apps offer. The costs of this app are astronomical, though. I imagine that eventually I’ll stop playing all together. I see many other users making similar comments, but I imagine that profits will take precedence.

by Bobbybadd on 2019/08/01 13:56
Don't get me wrong, I really like this game but the ads are getting ridiculous. Thirty second ads after each level is too much. Plus as I was playing today, in the middle of a level it went to a thirty second ad. Not cool

Too many long ads!
by Pat90732 on 2019/07/31 05:46
Game is fun and well done but way too many long, repetitive ads and way too expensive to get rid of the. $3.99 a month? Come on! I can avoid some of the ads by shutting off WiFi, but that’s a pain. $3.99 a year I’d do, but good grief!

I enjoy this game very much and am pretty well read. However, many of these questions are from the British language or perspective. That makes it almost unfair for anyone else for certain questions.

Love game, HATE Toy Blast ads
by PICOBOY BIRDY on 2019/07/30 13:48
For the past two days, between each level, ToyBlast ads with multiple screens run. They are long and can’t be avoided. I really enjoy CodyCross, but am ready to delete it if they continue to run only the lengthy Toy Blast ads. The developer should be monitoring what is running on their site!
Too many LONG commercials...
by SpiffyGal on 2019/07/30 04:26
...for really dumb games! Is there no way to pay a fee so I can enjoy this great game commercial free?? Love the game but HATE the horribly long ads for games that I would NEVER consider!!
Define the answer!
by No Gun Lover on 2019/07/30 00:54
While I agree with another reviewer on the overall game, the background is a bit cluttered for me. AND I’d love to see a step at the end of a puzzle that EXPLAINS the answer, Wormhole, Edwardian Era etc. What an incredible opportunity to complete the education process in addition to sharpening spelling skills. Please consider as this would keep this game totally Five Star!

Frustrating Ads
by WellingtonIV on 2019/07/28 21:02
I enjoy the game, although like many users have already stated, the clues are sometimes obscure. My issue is with the Lumen8 ads that lock up the game; sometimes the ads run with no problem and at other times the ads do no open and freeze, leaving you unable to play the game.
Interruptions

by retiredpitmom on 2019/07/28 20:15
I enjoy playing this game a lot. Very rarely am I stuck for an answer but many times I have to think hard for the answer. I like that it is easy to get hints and that you are helped along the way by answering other questions correctly.

by dha1957 on 2019/07/27 18:37
I wish that there was a version without ads. Although I don’t mind playing the game, the ads will probably make me stop. It feels like the more you play, the ads keep getting longer.

by Sall223 on 2019/07/27 13:44
I want to give this game 5 stars but the further up on the ladder I get, the more the questions are just a repeat of previous levels. With everything there is to know in this great big world, why all the repeats? Sorry Cody Cross, i may be deleting this game for good. 😢

by wisdomdivine on 2019/07/26 14:47
I’ve been playing this game for awhile now and it WAS fun, even with overlooking the fact that some of the words are wrong for the clues. But now...THERE ARE WAY TOO MANY ADS! Why do I have to see an ad after every. single. puzzle?? And I can’t exit out of them anymore. It’s getting to the point where I don’t really want to play anymore and delete the app. I known ads are how most companies get paid to keep a free game going, but come on...after every single puzzle?!? It’s ridiculous! It didn’t used to be like that and now it’s ad overload.
Addictive!

The clues and words are historically inaccurate and scientifically false. You need a fact-checker obviously. The game play might be fun, but this isn’t even correct.

I normally really liked CodyCross because it was a game that did not need a WiFi connection to start. This means I could take it everywhere and play it everywhere without using WiFi. Ever since the new update on CodyCross you are not able to do this.
Absolute FUN

This app is the best game app I have ever played If you like trivia and word games you will love this.
Way too many ads, not worth it
by Boomergirl420 on 2019/07/23 07:07
I really like the game when I’m actually playing it. But there’s three to five ads just to play five levels and the ads can be really long. If there was less ads or shorter ads then maybe I would play. I deleted it; this game isn’t worth all the lengthy ads.
Great...but!
by BudCann on 2019/07/23 06:12
This is an engaging word game but it has very annoying advertisements.
ADS ADS AND MOREADS.
by Iriesluvv on 2019/07/23 01:42
I just wrote a review giving this game 4 stars. It’s fun and challenging. HOWEVER it BOMBARDS the player with ads. Literally. I want to play the game, not waste my time watching an ad after completing every game...literally EVERY GAME. Give your players an option of opting out of them. Most of us are focused on the game, NOT ads for slot machine games up the wazoo.
launching issues
by felicia scudder on 2019/07/22 18:09
i downloaded this game yesterday and was playing it all night and this morning. i went back on it just before and every time the app starts to launch, it closes out. i checked to see if i needed to update it and i don’t. i restarted my phone also and it still isn’t working :(
Great game!!
by Maubird on 2019/07/22 18:09
CodyCross is such a fun game to play! However, after playing for several months it crashes on launch. I rebooted my phone and it still crashes! Help!!
Broken
by victoriakelly07 on 2019/07/22 18:02
Used to love this game but now every time I open the app it goes to a black screen and closes.
Game keeps crashing
by papaquick on 2019/07/22 17:57
I’m on level 80 and I uninstalled and reinstalled it won’t let me play. I’ve tried everything
Don’t waste your time
by Colorless in Colorado on 2019/07/22 17:53
After playing for about a half hour, I got out. When I tried to get back in, it keeps knocking me back out, I even tried deleting the game and reinstalling it. Power cycled my phone, but still doesn’t work. Don’t waste your time
Crashes
by apriljohnson11 on 2019/07/22 17:53
Downloaded this game yesterday really enjoyed it played a few levels today wanted to play again but the app will not open now keeps crashing deleted
Great Game
by Zepfan1021 on 2019/06/28 03:22
I don’t normally write reviews on here, but I felt that this game actually deserves one. I’ve downloaded a lot of different word games/cross word puzzle apps and none of them come close to this one. The graphics in this game are colorful and crisp; this alone makes it standout amongst other word game apps. The gameplay is smooth and clues are just challenging enough to make you think, but remain fun (there is a “hard” setting if you find it too easy). You are gifted 2 hints daily, which I’ve actually found to be enough. There are ads between each puzzle, however, you’re not forced to watch the entire ad to continue and I’ve not found them too bothersome. I’ve not had to spend any money to play, which is a huge plus. Seriously, if you enjoy crossword puzzles and word games give this one a try. I think you’ll be as pleasantly surprised as I was. Kudos to the developers for making a wonderful game. I look forward to continuing play!
My Sight of the Game
by DULCEelo on 2019/06/20 02:04
I’m gonna try to make this short and simple. The thought of a game like this is nice and cool however the clues are very unhelpful. I’m a teenager playing this and the ad said “ Play this for fifteen minutes every day and you’ll get better memory” or something also those line but I have been playing this for quite a while and it’s not helpful at all. The easy levels aren’t really easy. The game says for 4+ but not even a six year old would be able to play this because it’s extremely hard even for me. If you weren’t taught certain words growing up then this game is just too hard to play. Honestly please make easier levels. Also maybe the player isn’t ready for adventure mode and wants to do the easy pack but isn’t allowed to use money on games like me. What then? What if I’m not ready for adventure mode and want to go easy on myself but can’t? Will I just be restricted from the easy levels forever? Maybe premium could be used for different things other then levels, because that’s like playing Candy Crush but you have to pay to go past level 50 or so. Maybe it could be for more free hints. But having for the levels really restricts the player. That’s it I just wanted to say that now bye.
Love/Hate Cody
by TeacherDRP on 2019/02/22 02:49
The game is fun, and the challenges vary from almost ridiculously easy to frustratingly hard. The “space cadet” background format is a bit silly for someone like me who is in my seventh decade, but it is tolerable. Some of the clues are a bit inaccurate, if not misleading, and there is no immediate way to report or challenge them. I taught English for over forty years, so I have a bit of insight regarding definitions. All that said, the ads are the most annoying aspect. As a disclaimer, I fully realize that many other games have the same ads with the exact same problem. If a game cannot “hook” you in ten to fifteen seconds, the remaining fifteen aren’t going to either. Most annoying are the ones that you “X” out of only to have a second screen with a wait to hit the second “X.” What are these ad designers thinking? Has it occurred to them that these persistent and duplex ads actually may have the psychologically reverse effect of “I will never download that annoying thing.” Thus, hook me in fifteen seconds or less, or forget it. By the way, my wife and I play the same games on our IPads as a competition which makes for a lot of fun except that she wins too often.
Good Improvement System
by Digdawgmike on 2019/04/12 02:32
A while back I had tried playing this game, but some of the questions were really easy and the game was rather boring due to the lack of challenge. However I saw an ad for Cody Cross while I was playing another mobile game, so I figured I might as well try it out again. Turns out the developers for this app added in a review after each level. After each level it asks if a certain question out of that level is fun or boring and they use this customer feedback to exterminate low-scoring questions, and it seems that it has made the game far more challenging and interesting! I have enjoyed this game so much that I haven’t put my phone down since I started playing it, four months ago! Karen if you’re reading this please let me have weekend visits with our kids y’all mean the world to me I promise I’ll get off my phone and spend time with them. But due to the addictiveness of this game I had to give it four stars and not five. Yes this game is fun, but the cost of losing your wife and kids is not worth it.
A Cross between Word find and 😁crossword game..
by 1stCeye on 2019/06/25 23:51
I love this game! It has helped me find words I had problems remembering! I love the chance to think up the correct words and if I can’t, then getting other words causes letters to fly into words waiting for me to get them! You can win coins that allow a “li’l guy” astronaut to award you letters at the cost of one coin per letter, so there is a lot of help here! The graphics as you travel from section to section are amazing...you can choose to play free or buy a subscription....there is plenty of play for Free. I have been playing for nearly 2 months...just about every day...Support is great and (ads are few and x makes them go away, fast!) I wish all games did this, I would be playing them, too...but there is a lot of fun here...A family could help, shouting out the words...how fast can your family get one level/5 games? “TRY IT...YOU’LIKE IT”💜💜💜😀😀😀
A little too hard
by reven the sith master on 2019/06/02 06:05
Okay I’m not complaining about the game it’s wonderfully made!! I love the way when you start out it shows Cody with his little tablet and when I’m spelling the words it makes me feel like I’m actually on this new planet with my tablet discovering stuff! But being the age I am still young and in the tween years almost teen at 11 almost twelve some of the words are a little hard it would be better if you made the words like common words like flower or computer common words that every body knows about I am not aloud on you tube or google and what I’m aloud to watch is very restricted so when it asks me stuff like what was the dance that this person did I’m like I don’t even know who that is I’m stuck on level three!! I tried some of the other ones but it’s a little hard please can you make the words a little easier at least make a thing we’re you can change the difficulty because I know some people like a challenge I don’t know what all the people are complaining about they do forget you have a family to provide for thank you 😊
Fun, but needs improvement
by +jetthehawk+ on 2018/11/17 22:22
I have really enjoyed this game so far, but the main reason I write this is so I can give some criticism. First, I feel the difficulty goes all over the place. Going from six- to nine-letter clues is way harder than it sounds. If the first part of the game had only six or seven letters, and the eight or nine letter puzzles were saved for later, the game would be much more approachable. Also, some of the clues are just far too much out there. I feel like literally nobody would know some of these obscure clues without Googling the answer. The most frustrating thing though is the fact that the clues don’t tell you how many words are in each answer. Normal crossword puzzles tell you if the answer has more than one word, so why not this game? There are so many clues where I’ve been stumped since the puzzles make it look like it’s always one word, but many times it’s two or even three. If I had known that, I could have gotten the answer easily. If the devs see this, please fix these issues. It would make the game better for anyone.
I adore this game!
by its me again...... on 2019/06/03 21:46
If you’re looking for a simple and fun way to waste some extra time, this game is it! (Tbh I play it whether or not I have time to waste!) It’s controls are very straightforward—you use your phones built-in keyboard. The duration of the game seems to be limitless and so does the diversity of questions. I am on puzzle 339 and I’m still not tired of it. I am disagreeing with some of the other reviews by saying this, but I haven’t found any of the hints to be agitating or lacking if you will. Even if they might be misleading, that’s just part of the fun! It is a puzzle after all. Nothing in this game causes me anything but joy! The ads do put a slight damper on things, but the game has an offline mode which gets rid of most of them for me. I appreciate the developers doing a good game by producing such a great game. Keep it up guys (and gals)!
Good game
by Nkflekakcmzl on 2019/04/09 18:23
Overall it’s a really fun game, I’m on Group 97 right now so I’ve played quite a bit. There’s only two things I don’t like, which are 1. If you want to remove ads, you have to buy a subscription where you get more levels and stuff, but you have to pay a certain fee every week/month/year or whatever and it’s way too much money for what it is. And 2. There are too many Christianity related questions. And no, I’m not complaining just because I’m not religious. If there were questions about other religions that balanced out the ones about Christianity, I would be okay with that. But thus far, I have had absolutely no questions about any religion except Christianity. Plus there’s a Christianity related question in nearly every question set and it just seems a little excessive. But overall, it’s a fun game. I’ll probably continue playing it for a while.
Great game!
by Mabpagan on 2019/02/19 02:33
I've read through some of the reviews, and I just don't see the problems that those people do. I enjoy the fact that puzzles of different lengths occur randomly, so that one time you have 6-letter words, and the next 9-letter words. I have run across very few words where I needed to consult Google. I've used it perhaps six times. I haven't found any odd spellings of words. I like the fact that the number of words in an answer aren't indicated--it makes me think. Most of the levels have been pretty easy so far. It's a lot easier than the New York Times crosswords, which I appreciate. And I have no objection to words like asylum, global warming, climate change, etc. Conservatives must be hyper-sensitive--or have guilty consciences--to consider those part of some leftist conspiracy. Finally, any child old enough to play this game successfully is old enough to be exposed to the words the puzzles contain. The ads get to be a little annoying, but the developers need to be able to generate income so that they can continue to add levels and develop new games. Too many times people forget that the people who make the games also have families to support. This is a fun, addictive game. I highly recommend it!
Once-fun game now ravaged by annoying interactive ads.
by paintballduke22 on 2019/04/05 14:34
I never leave reviews on apps, but I needed to for this one. I have been playing and enjoying CodyCross for at least a year now. There has always been ads in this game, but typically you could get through a few puzzles before a single ad would pop up. As a fellow developer, I found this reasonable. Recently, this game has changed to 1 video ad AND 1 interactive ad for every puzzle you solve (ranging from ~7-15 words). There is also no way to pay to disable ads, which should be easy functionality here in 2019. At this point it feels like a barrage of ads with no end in sight. Thanks for the fun while it lasted, I want to like your game but your user experience is going down down down. The premise of this game is that of a crossword puzzle with a little twist. When you solve a word, typically this triggers a few letters elsewhere in the puzzle to solve themselves to help you out. The character is whimsical and completely irrelevant.
What a Gem
by RoseRamirez on 2019/06/27 09:04
I absolutely never leave app reviews, but I just could not go without recommending this wonderful game. This is the most beautiful game I’ve played in years. The graphics are gorgeous, smooth, and full of color! The puzzles are challenging but not overwhelming, making it possible to progress relatively easy. Finally, the thing that really surprised me the most, was the beautiful little music notes that play as you type out puzzle answers. It’s like you’re playing a tiny, little children’s xylophone. It sounds like a lullaby and is the sweetest, most relaxing thing to hear at the end of a stressful day. This game was incredibly well thought out. It has been at least half a decade since I’ve seen this much dedication put in to a mobile game. Give this game a try!
Cody Cross
by Pepatrick49 on 2019/08/13 13:09
I have lived this game from the beginning ! It is a word game that actually makes your brain think! Words come that you had long forgotten but when you see them you go back to a teacher or a friend to have you this word many years ago. When I first started the games were very plentiful and went in for months! Now it is only a few every month! I am sure doing these puzzles is not easy but from my end it is very disappointing to play then suddenly they are done! I check everyday to see if it’s back and am so upset when it isn’t! It almost makes me want to stop playing. I can’t decide if I’m happier doing some or more disappointed that it’s done! Please get Cody back on track with more continuing games!
Better Game
by jegrinstead on 2019/07/13 01:42
Unfortunately I used to like this game. I’m getting more and more frustrated because I can’t find some the answers. I am in the Transport group, Puzzle 3. There are two answers that I can’t find. This has happened several times in past puzzles. Why is it you put questions in puzzles but for some reason the answers are not found. I thought I was in the “easy” section, but I’m beginning to think that there are really no easy ones. There’s no reason to have a game ad after every question, it’s annoying. After about a year I decided to try this came again. I find it easier to play and have been able to answer the questions or am able to find the answers. Thank you developers
Responsive to suggestions
by QuinOTK on 2018/07/26 22:41
Today I came across a clue that said “conscientious ___ refuse to perform military service”. As a 13-year Army Veteran as a conscientious objector and an Infantry Medic, I was quite offended. I challenged the definition and, initially, was told it was in accordance with Webster’s. However, once I clarified the definition and offered an alternative, “Conscientious ___ refuse to bear arms in military service”, they understood and were submitting for a change. I am proud to have effected this small change, and it says much about the designers. They want to create something fun and dignified. Thank you, fanatee, for acknowledging those of us who served while still respecting our own morals. High marks for every aspect of this game and its creators!!!!
Fun, but could be better
by 5280Guitar on 2018/04/13 12:58
I like word puzzles in general, and I really like this game overall. The clues are generally a nice mix of obvious, and “I need to think about that some.” Where I think this could really set itself apart, and where it really disappoints me, is after solving these puzzles and revealing an interesting word like “tetraodontic” or a term I wasn’t familiar with (Helladic period), I feel like I’m left hanging. There is no explanation of what the word or term is, or any hyperlinks to wiki entries to expand on the word/concept. Sure, I can look them up myself, but then I’m less likely to return to the game. Some of the concepts that are brought out in the game (globalization, coastal erosion, sustainability) are particularly relevant for our times. Not making it easier to learn more seems to be a missed opportunity.
Some clues too generic
by Seadoobie on 2019/02/03 21:50
I understand that it might be difficult to find unique words that fit the puzzles and you’ll have to look some up here and there. Usually you’ll get enough letters to be able to make a guess, but lately I’ve had entire puzzles where I’ve never heard of the clues or answers or random peoples names. I’m on level 245 now and finding myself having to search more answers than I’m able to figure out. Some player on a minor league sports team in a third world country or a Czech protestors name etc. There’s maybe a handful of people in the world that could have a random guess at some of these. I would also guess that English isn’t the first language of the developers. Some of the singular/plural, future/past tense etc is off. So unless you know what oudekerk and greatauk and other words your spell checker won’t recognize you’ll end up frustrated.
Do Not Subscribe!
by GraceyManor on 2019/03/22 05:45
Subscribers beware! I did a one month subscription; 8 days later connected to Facebook & lost all access (even though it still shows I am subscribed). Prior to connecting to FB, there was no prompt stating you will lose access. I sent an email this morning hoping the developers can fix the problem...as of yet, have not heard back. Update: I still have not rec’d an email back from the developer. Canceled subscription & requested refund from iTunes. **Even though it’s the weekend, the developer should monitor email, especially regarding subscriptions** Update: You have my email, along with a picture of my subscription transaction. Perhaps you should check your junk email... I have noticed from past reviews where others have emailed you, you have responded w/ the same excuse, “I cannot find your email...” AND Restore does not fix the subscription; tried it before emailing you. Update: You ignore/do not respond to emails bc they do not match screen names? So let me get this straight - if your customers have issues with your game, do not email, instead write a review? You should respond to ALL emails from customers that are having difficulty with your game (esp. when it involves money); not ignore emails bc the names do not match the review. Ignoring emails is never the way to go. Apple refunded the money.
Used to love it now I can’t stand it!!
by Angelatom2015 on 2018/02/03 16:53
Please remove all these ads that keep popping up or I will delete this game, it’s not even a fun game anymore. I’m on 128 in Culinary Arts I’ve gone so far in this game and I've really enjoyed playing this game, but all of the ads have taken all the fun out of it. This used to be a great game and I loved it but after the update it’s awful and full of ads after every level. I liked it before when I could watch a few second video and get free hints, but this is ridiculous. If you can’t make all of the extra ads go away I will have to delete the game and I would hate to I’m in Transports group 110 but I can’t even go to the board without yet another ad popping up and I just got to that group. Come on seriously!! Please fix it I really don’t want to delete it and I can’t stand to play it anymore it just sits there I keep hoping I’ll go into my game and the ads will be gone but nope.
Love!
by MysticMom on 2018/02/12 23:06
My husband and I play this together every night at bedtime. We are addicted and unfortunately so close to finishing the levels! I have seriously considered purchasing more, though! I do have a few comments, suggestions. We have found certain topics seem to be very repetitious...The Simpsons, for one. So tired of them. There are also a lot of terms that are not universal and are obviously from England. It helps that my husband went to school there, but it would still be nice if you used the most universal terms and spellings. Overall, we greatly enjoy the game despite the annoyance of the new ad placement. We can deal with them though they did spoil the flow of the game.
Great game
by Not Savvy on 2019/07/07 07:17
I love the fact that by finding one answer you get some clues to other answers. By only needing to by tokens now and then, I will continue to play this game. I have already learned new things from it and remembered old things. I believe I am becoming addictive to this one because it challenges my knowledge of events and other things. In the Undersea World, it would be nice to see some pictures of some of the fish or places that were found. I don’t know what some, actually, many of them are so it would be nice to see what they look like. Please keep this game the way it is with a balance of easy and somewhat difficult puzzles.
Super fun!
by xandeinerseitex on 2018/12/18 06:36
I really do love this game. A lot of times I’ll put on a podcast and just sit back and play through a few puzzle groups. The only reasons I gave it a four-star rating is because first, the amount of ads you’re made to watch is absurd, and they’re usually 30 seconds and are totally unskippable. I get needing to make money off your app, but it’s a little ridiculous. The second reason is that some of the clues are really vague and could be a little clearer. As it is, there are always a handful that are oddly niche, and I’m waiting to finish other answers and have the letters fill in in the hopes that I figure it out. Googling it takes the fun out of it, but sometimes, it’s your only choice. And some of the clues are so poorly chosen, or frustrating as a whole. For example, the one I just got today was, “Transatlantic ___ stands out in San Francisco skyline”. The answer was “pyramid”. Apparently there are no more remarkable pyramids in the world than an insurance building. Overall, I’d highly recommend the game. My two complaints aren’t even close to enough to make me stop playing. I lose hours to this game and I don’t even mind.
Really enjoyable (:
by Fungirl461 on 2018/09/23 05:12
This game is pretty fun if you like puzzle games. I’m in love with the music and the sound effects, really make it enjoyable. I do think it’s a little more challenging for me but it helps me think a lot more to figure the puzzle out, if that makes sense. What I wish could happen is when I am trying to share to facebook, I would actually get the 15 coins that it says I can get when I share to facebook. I just wish I didn’t have to bombard my friends timelines with posts when all I really want is the 15 coins it says I can get. That’s really all I have a problem with. It’s a really fun, pretty game. I also love the little characters (:
Really fun and makes you think....
by Chloe K's Mommy on 2018/02/08 06:18
Four stars because I haven’t had the game long and still learning the ropes. Anyway, I downloaded this game a few days ago because an advertisement for it popped up on my VeryDice game and it seemed like it’d be a fun challenge....after playing I can say the game is fun to play, makes you use your brain, and really helps you escape for a little while. I am only planning on playing the free version because honestly the ads aren’t that big of a deal and $10 a month for a game is just not something I really want to do, I’d rather put that in to my savings for my daughter or something more tangible later....otherwise I’d totally recommend this if you want to test your brain and enjoy it.
I used to love codycross
by Smorris70 on 2017/11/16 14:19
I used to love this game and got several people playing it because they’d ask what it was. Im on level 91 of circus. Then they updated the other day and now its terrible. I’m made to watch an ad after every puzzle and I am not happy about it. Before the update you only had to watch an ad at the end of a level and you could choose to watch an ad for tokens in between if you wanted. Now the ads come after every puzzle even if i choose to continue. If i choose continue it doesn’t even give me the tokens for watching! And each ad is 30 seconds long that’s ridiculous. I’m still deciding if it’s enough to make me uninstall the game. The update came with no warning that this would happen, it said “bug fixes”. So dishonest! Sad that your greed has gotten in the way of what used to be a great game.
Too many commercials!!!!
by slowtorque on 2018/11/13 17:57
My wife and I really like this game. But there are way to many and too long commercials! Solve a puzzle and you have to watch a 30 second commercial. Exit a level and again, 15-30 second commercial. We would gladly pay for a commercial free version, but could not find it. When I get a 30 second commercial (or a commercial with no timer), I turn the game off and don’t play again for several hours or even a couple days. Hope your advertisers see my post, because they are paying you for nothing. I got tired of the ads before and deleted the game. I was hoping they fixed this, but it looks like I will be deleting it again.
Very Solid
by crelish1 on 2019/02/19 01:48
I feel that this game has a much better balance than some other mobile games when it comes to making money vs. preserving the player experience. The ads aren’t to common and the game offers plenty of free ways to get tokens. In some ways it is sad that a game deserves five starts for not being completely pay to win, but it is still extremely nice. Beyond just the principle of micro transactions, the gameplay is enjoyable and lives up to my expectations. The openness to feedback and the option to turn on hard mode are both great. Overall, ignoring some very small things, it is what a mobile game should be.
End of an era...
by GameJer on 2019/04/11 21:16
This game was one of my favorites for a long time. I reached level 472 and had 1089 tokens. The update from a few weeks ago caused the game to stop working. If you try to play any part of the game it immediately closes down. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, I do can make the game operable. The developer said they would help me restore my game to the current level and token amount but never replied after my initial contact. I guess it’s time to move on to something else. UPDATE: the Developers reached out to me and restored my game to where I was before it crashed. Probably the best customer service I’ve heard of for any game app. THANKS!!!
I have a love hate relationship with this game
by liz.chassin on 2019/05/21 11:15
I love playing this game in the morning on my way to school. I have a 30 minute ride so it occupies me for that time. It also kinda wakes me up and gets me ready for school. There’s a few things I hate. The fact that you can one mute very few ads. Please make it so I can mute all ads. I don’t really mind watching ads because that’s how I found this games but when I listen to music it’s pretty load and the ad would hurt my ears or ruin my music. Also, I think that the players should get more than 2 clues per day because I use them kind of a lot so it would be nice to get some more. Other then those 2 things I really like this game.
Favorite game, needs some modifications
by Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabby on 2019/04/25 19:03
Let me just start off by saying that this is one of my favorite games of the moment. I’m constantly playing. I think it’s fun and addictive and give just the right amount of hints without making it too challenging or too easy. I also really like that you have the option to get your tokens back after you use them almost every time. However, I HATE the keyboard. 99% of the time, I have to type my answer 3-4 times because I am so accustomed to my iPhone keyboard, and this keyboard is not the same layout, so I hit the wrong button CONSTANTLY. Also, the hints being located on the keyboard is a bit strange too. Also, something to note, this game definitely feels as though it was created by non American developers. There isn’t necessarily anything wrong with that, it just makes it a bit more challenging at times because I am unfamiliar with the terminology for some things. That being said, the game will acknowledge when a term is more “American” and will address that in the hint. Overall, GREAT game. Just PLEASE fix the keyboard.
ISSUE RESOLVED❣️Revised Review
by Angel in Thrall on 2019/02/23 19:47
I had given this game a very poor review just a few days ago, because of all the ads. I have a subscription, and was still getting a crazy amount of ads, to the point where I couldn’t even play the game. I am very happy to say that this issue has been COMPLETELY RESOLVED! I am pleasantly stunned, I must say. The response to my previous review was pretty much immediate, and was very professional and understanding, despite my harsh critique. The issue with the ads has vanished. I am now really enjoying the game, and it has become my favorite! This is what customer service is all about!
Fun but full of subliminal propaganda
by Millany7 on 2018/11/28 01:13
I really liked playing this game. The constant ads are a pain but oh well. However, the thing I have a problem with is the theme of debatable political topics. It's not in your face but certainly obvious to anyone that pays attention, and not good for young minds to be exposed to. You'll have clues or answers connected to terms/ people that can be controversial. Such as: globalization, UN, global warming, immigration, a well-known GMO pusher, fascism, on and on. I don't think we'd see as many of these types of themes if our political divide wasn't so strong, and thus the attempt of indoctrination at every corner. The worst by far was a clue that lead to the first or last name (can't remember) of Aleister Crowley. Yes, the one that's is the founder of a "satanic-like" church. Named the "wickedest man in the world". Ask yourself, why on earth would his name belong in a game that children may play? Think about that.
Good, but becomes stale
by Jakoqowidjebjenxjxksnd on 2018/07/10 04:43
I’ll preface by saying I found this game to be very fun. So fun that I’ve gone through 625 puzzles. It’s an Interesting word game that’s normally not hard, and very forgiving. However every so often I find myself looking up answers. The questions can get very generic. For example, I just had one that was along the lines of “A dish made with ground beef and other ingredients”. As you can tell, it’s hard to narrow it down, so you absolutely have to answer other questions and hope you get a letter pop up. I’m also 125 “groups” in. There’s five puzzles per group, so after 625 puzzles you start to see duplicates from past puzzles. I just play it to pass the time now/
Great Game! Except With Excessive Ads
by kawaiibutts on 2019/04/24 15:38
This game is fun, albeit a few ignorant words that do not properly match due to incorrect culture knowledge. For example Nirvana being a state of mind for Buddhists and large blankets being Ponchos. However, the main problem with this game is the severely excessive ads. Every single time you exit a puzzle, you get an ad. Whether or not you’ve solved it or just keeping it for later, you will receive an ad. Most of them are skippable, but only after around 5-10 seconds. The advertisements themselves are fake as well. The advertisements for App Store games are false. They do not actually include real gameplay for these games at all. So not only do we get an excessive amount of ads, we also get fake ads.
Great Game!
by Marccrand on 2019/02/20 09:15
I really love this game, it's smart and well executed. Do I like the ads? Of course not, but I could buy a subscription and haven't so that's my choice. Some of the clues are questionably vague or strange but it's not going to stop me from playing. But a recent change sincerely has me stumped: the question at the end - was this clue/answer fun or boring? I'm not being snarky when I sincerely say I don't know what that means... Are they asking if the question was hard or easy? Do I want more clues like that? Am I enjoying the game or not? It's a simple question that shouldn't get under my skin but it drives me crazy! I'd like to help the developers but please rephrase the question so I know what you want.
LOVE this game!
by BatmanArkhamSaga on 2019/02/18 14:34
I’ve been playing this game for a while now—to the point where I’m nearly finishing the Roma section. I adore the new take on crossword puzzles, which helps me so much on the harder answers. I will admit that there are some answers that are almost impossible to answer, especially those that are only one worded clues. But, I move on to the next clues and little by little, I figure out the answer. Every time I get nervous and think there’s only one world left to do, an update comes around that has another. Thank you for this great game!
Attempting to push subliminal political messages
by Gazoney on 2018/11/02 20:36
The “Topic” for the levels in the beginning (may change later, but I’m on the tenth area and it hasn’t yet) is “Planet Earth”, however in the infinite possibilities that has, it has made references to multiple political topics. “Global Warming”, “Climate Change”, “Colonization”, “Human Migration”, “Central America” (the last two in close proximity, with “Immigrant” being an answer). At one point it had “Colony” as a word, with the definition being a group of people that are invaded by another, which is not the definition at all, but fits the pushed agenda of white people in America being “Colonizers” because of what the USA founders did to the Native Americans. I’d probably continue playing if this wasn’t so obvious, which is why I gave it two stars instead of one.
Couple Changes Would Make it 5 Stars
by RogueWonTon on 2019/07/03 15:26
I'd like to be able to click on a specific block and change that letter directly. Right now, I have to retype out the whole word and if I mistyped the last letter, it's annoying. Like if I accidentally hit "a" instead of "s" at the end, I should be able to just click back on it to fix it. I've tried hitting delete and clicking on the erroneous block, but they don't work... Cursor stays at the beginning of the word. Also, too much animation. Slows the game down. Would be great to be able to turn that off. It's flashy the first couple rounds, but now it's just boring.
Hints can be deceiving
by Millwrightwife on 2019/02/17 13:22
I love playing this game!! Some hints however are either not correct for the word or is way to easy to confuse how it was meant. Example, Cooking, French style. This leads me to believe it is something to do with French cooking. I was racking my brain trying to figure out what it was. As I got more letters I realized it was cuisine. If you didn’t already know I will tell you that cuisine is a term for a type of food, such as Indian cuisine or Italian cuisine it is not strictly a French thing. This can make things very confusing. Also it would be helpful if you let us know if an answer is more than one word. If I don’t see a gap I assume my answer is one word. It gets confusing and a little aggravating.
Ambiguity
by Dragging In the Morning on 2019/06/03 01:43
Although I am enjoying the game, it seems to me that there are enough common words in our English language to enable one to play for months without them being repeated within two days. Some of the prompts are miswritten. Advertisements are ALWAYS annoying, especially when presented over and over. WHY do we have to sit through 2-3 ads between EACH portion of a single level??? Makes no sense especially considering the ads are not really advertising because they are rarely identified as to what the game is…. I could see a 15 second ad between levels, but come on! I looked at paying to play the game, but ARE YOU SERIOUS??? $65 per year?? That's insane!!!
Cody cross by Fanatee
by dearest auntie alice on 2018/09/22 00:48
I would normally give this game five stars, because I used to love it. But recently the ads have taken over. I could be in the middle of adding the letters to a puzzle, and an pops up in the middle of it. The ads drive me crazy. They have taken over the game. I am seriously considering deleting this game and I am on level 367. Sometimes I don’t even know or understand questions about other countries. I feel like it’s a scene from Star Trek.... “ The trouble with Tribbles.” I absolutely hate advertising, so I will not purchase their products. An occasional ad might be ok, but I am getting swamped with ads as they have infested my iPad. You best get the strongest bleach and rid this game ads, so it can become the best game. dear puzzlers don’t waste your valuable time on this game until it rids itself of the advertising infestation. I used to love this game and played it constantly when I had a bad day. Now forgetta bout it! Sorry I had write this bad review. Maybe someone will read this and clean out the infestation. It just so happens it left my screen blank while I was playing a game. I can’t get it back. Is someone trying to tell me something? Alice
Great fun, with room for improvement.
by Sweeney2391 on 2018/03/13 23:02
I’ve immensely enjoyed the game, the difficulty is a very gradual, almost unnoticeable climb. I made it through the first 35 levels without any mandatory ads. However, when the ads started, they seem to have a tendency to glitch out the game. The last ad that popped up locked the game on a black screen that won’t go away unless you perform a hard reset of the entire phone. Very much so a hassle. Other than patching a few bugs, the only recommendation I could offer would be to add some of the extra categories to free players. I do understand that developers need to make a living, but this game is not endless for Free players.
Loved it before update
by Rabs908 on 2017/12/14 23:40
The app crashed when I was on level 60. I had to uninstall and re-download when this occurred. When I re-downloaded, I was disappointed to find out that I now must pay two tokens for every level. This was not the case before the app crashed. I’m sad to say that I will likely stop playing this game due to the changes that have been made. To update my prior review- Overall, this is a great game. I emailed the developer regarding bugs and crashes that I experienced and they got right back to me. It’s refreshing that the developers of this game are actually willing to help-thank you!
Lots of fun!
by adhharmony on 2019/04/12 16:00
I don’t usually leave reviews. Many games start out easy and fun but very quickly get to the point where you can’t even finish a level it’s so difficult or you have to spend money. So far this game isn’t like that! There are times you gotta really think hard but it’s not all the time and you don’t get frustrated that they make it impossible to progress. Having a game that’s easy enough to just play and relax yet uses the brain is a breath of fresh air! Keep it simple and fun please!!!
A Time Waster, but not that great
by Myztikal Tearz on 2018/11/23 01:14
Some of the clues were redundant and most were unimaginative. As the game goes on (I did complete to Roma, which was the last free set), it seems like the developers got bored. Over half of the clues were seeking synonyms.... tedious and boring. Some of the clues were vague that one couldn’t be certain if the answer was a noun (person) or a ‘similar’ verb, as in it was a definition. I agree with another reviewer that sometimes the answer involved several words; this was unclear as well. My final criticism is some answers had several different spellings. It was frustrating when I knew the answer, but it the correct answer was spelled differently. Two stars because I didn’t delete it immediately.
Puzzling stall-outs
by threeoutside on 2018/10/28 17:23
I like this game a lot. There is a wide variety of difficulty levels and subjects. I love looking up new words so this is just right for me. The one problem it’s presenting is that lately it just randomly freezes on me. It happens when I tap on the next puzzle in a series: the screen goes solid purple & nothing I do fixes it. The only thing that works is just turning it off and coming back hours later - in practical terms that’s usually the next day. Is this the makers’ way of telling me to put down the phone & get back to life? Is there something I’m doing wrong?
Like it, but...
by Pamkl on 2018/12/20 01:52
Since the last update, (about a month ago), the game locks up after the majority of the ads between puzzles, making it even more unstable than it was before! After the ad runs, screen goes black then main iPad screen comes up. CodyCross goes to the background and when you tap it, it has to restart and go thru that process again to play. I put up with it, cause I like the game, but...... You mentioned a few days ago to another user, that you have implemented a fix for this, but I'm not seeing it.
Good game, but...
by MusicLoverExtraordinaire on 2019/04/27 23:28
This is a good game that’s fun to play but it’s clear that English is not its creators’ first language. Many of the clues are just plain weird and some of the words and vernacular are not even of the English language. Still, it’s fun to try to figure out even though it can be tremendously frustrating at times. They need to hire an American English speaking editor. Otherwise I would give it five stars. Of course the developer responded by defending the game and asked me which words I was referring to. They would have to put me on the payroll in order to list all of their American English-speaking mistakes! It would take forever there are so many.
Love it but frustrating
by JJAmericans on 2018/04/16 03:44
I play this game everyday. I enjoy a good crossword puzzle and this one is different from The typical. But five days out of seven I can’t collect my free tokens. I have to wait two or three days to get them. It keeps telling me there is an issue with the server or my WiFi. Yet, I have no issues with other games. It is frustrating because of a week’s time I will lose eight-ten free tokens. Some days it is easy peasy but most it takes the game forever to load and that’s when I know I won’t be able to claim my tokens. I would give this game a five star rating but I just can’t. It isn’t worth that, yet, to me.
