Stop with the bee
by DismantleDesign on 2019/11/14 14:45
Stop making the bee tell me to drag him. It covers the keypad and I can’t type. It’s annoying. He says it like 10 times a game.
Annoying ad
by Omalape on 2019/11/14 06:42
The Dollar Shave Club ad was fixed for a day but now it is back to not letting you out of the ad. I have to turn my iPad off and restart to get rid of the ad. Really enjoy playing Cody Cross and want to keep playing. Please fix the ad again.
One way to make it better!
by Chuckles0419 on 2019/11/13 22:54
Love the game! Very addictive. I even paid to remove ads and be able to play the packs category. One thing I think would make it better is if when answering a question and you get one or two letters wrong, just delete the letters you got wrong instead of the whole word. Sometimes I have known the answer and the whole word was deleted because of one letter weather I spelled it wrong or mistyped the word.
Don’t know what to put here
by scorvin07 on 2019/11/13 22:15
To many ads
Great workout
by mammy jammer on 2019/11/13 19:49
This is a great workout for the brain. Keeps you on your toes.enjoy very much.
Like this game but...
by McKsnug on 2019/11/13 15:32
This game is fun, however, in between each level, there are advertisements of other games or apps, and it is extremely irritating. Maybe the developer can cut down the advertisements to every other level, or people can pay to have them removed. Each advertisement is about 30 seconds long and it gets tiresome. If you like this game enough, I suggest you pay to remove the ads.
Wordlover
by No name lass on 2019/11/13 06:29
Like the game. Keeps me challenged. A different type of crossword puzzle. One thing that I don’t like. Far too many of the words are obscure proper nouns - names of people or places - otherwise a great game.
Frustrating
by Margo mp on 2019/11/13 04:04
I would give this a 5 Star review but it’s frustrating that I can’t get hints when offered. Never able to get the free hints.
Great game, horrible ads
by puzzl0v3r on 2019/11/13 01:34
As others have stated, the game is appropriately challenging and fun but the ads keep me from wanting to play the game. I understand they are needed in order to keep the app free but it is concerning that some of the ads automatically open the App Store after running a video for 15-30 seconds. I would like to see the X (close) option rather than an arrow directing me to open the App Store or for it to automatically open it. The ad developers need to learn that annoying the market is not a way to get customers. Please change this feature or I will be deleting the game.

Addictive but don’t like repetitive ads!
App won't start
by Keb999 on 2019/11/12 20:55
I love the game, but since the Oct 26 update the app will not start. I just get a blank screen. I'm using an iPad 3.
Too. Many. Ads.
by Metoomonkey on 2019/11/12 05:54
I enjoy the game; but the ads are beyond annoying. If I could play without them; I’d give it 5 stars.
Love it ....but
by Saxxye on 2019/11/12 04:59
I have been playing this for a while and had purchased the ad free but then I could afford to keep it up so now I am playing with ads which I am finding more and more annoying. On top of that there is reference to Christianity questions in every puzzle which I am beginning to find offensive as other religions are not mentioned. There are also some answers and even clues that require Google searches to figure out. Starting not to be fun anymore. Will probably uninstall and look elsewhere to keep my brain stimulated.
It was all going great
by Zoo box on 2019/11/11 23:39
until it asked me if I wanted to double my Rewards...now it’s just circling the drain and won’t do ANYTHING. Sadly disappointed; guess I’ll delete the app and find something new
Lost it all
by hatedems on 2019/11/11 23:01
I have been playing this game forever. Was on level 302. My husband started playing in his pad and it send me back to level 1. How can I get all mine back. I LOVE the game. Help please.
Fun
by Commercial woes on 2019/11/11 14:00
I love playing this game with my sons. We especially enjoy that little clues can be given with every correct answer.
Great game
by Puzzler186 on 2019/11/11 13:01
Is there any way you could provide an ad free version?
Privacy
by HSRat on 2019/11/11 01:43
Deleted the game when you changed privacy policy. Why would a puzzle game need access to my personal data.
Fun, fun, fun
by volflier on 2019/11/10 19:00
Fun, works mind.
Awesome game!
by Cd127652000 on 2019/11/10 16:29
The game is very well put together, and not too hard. However, the music is a little dissonant and ominous. There is even a point in the music where it sounds like a creepy squeaky door is opening and it’s kind of freaky 😂 Overall, I love the game.
Where are more chapters!!!!????
by JoeySu on 2019/11/10 16:07
Love this game but there are only 38 chapters to play. So now it’s useless. Where are more games???????
Language
by Rainburd on 2019/11/10 16:06
I love this game, but something happened and I’m getting it in Spanish. Help! How do I get it back in English.

Great games have to stay on your toes.
Culturally wrong
by Blimey Harry on 2019/11/10 05:22
The question: “ The Irish saint that is celebrated while wearing green.” is wrong. The correct color is BLUE. America celebrates it as green, Ireland celebrates it as blue. Please fix.
Love It!
by Txblndee on 2019/11/10 03:44
I can spend hours on this game. Fun, can be challenging at times. I would recommend.
Horrible
by Leedoosh on 2019/11/09 22:23
You call this improvement you cheapskates!!!!! Looks like all the wonderful and so appreciated perks are gone. Shame on you!!!!!!
Suggestion
by Fancylady#1 on 2019/11/09 21:24
I would like it if correct letters where accepted even if not the whole word. And less commercials!!

Too many ads!
by Welsbacher on 2019/11/09 19:18
An ad after each game is annoying. Will delete.

by geuiniveve on 2019/11/09 18:15
Very fun crossword game. I like the sound effects, graphics, and background music! Helps keep me on top of my vocabulary! It also reminds me of vocabulary I learned sharing with my parents and teachers!!!
To many ads
by me$$47 on 2019/11/09 03:07
Way to many ads
Ads are annoying
by dnxlanf c on 2019/11/09 00:34
The game gets pretty difficult quick. And the ads that play after every level is ridiculous. Super annoying.
Popups
by ccwithnuts on 2019/11/09 00:14
Could do with less ad popups!!!
Comment
by HeyJude0103 on 2019/11/08 17:15
I like the game but I’d like the comments at the end of each puzzle to read “easy” & “hard” rather than “fun” & “boring”. It would also give you better feedback also.
Lfk
by Lfklfklfklfklfklfklfk on 2019/11/08 05:00
Questions are to hard.
LOVE IT
by GameLover563412 on 2019/11/08 01:17
Now I’ve been looking at reviews and I’ve noticed people saying that the questions are too hard, yet I disagree. I think they are not to hard, yet not to easy. It’s not laggy and it helps my understanding of history. The man who created the theory of evolution was Darwin, and Queen Elizabeth l was born when Shakespeare was around. I never New this before so, this is great for your mind! P.S. it didn’t even ask me to review, I came into apps and did it myself which never happens. Sincerely, Happy CodyCross Player
Love and hate
by Pita 224 on 2019/11/08 00:58
I really like the questions and graphics but hate the amount of ads. Seriously! You do NOT need an ad every 3 minutes and repeating ads at that. Love the game but hate, HATE, HATE the amount of ads. Deleting the game.
Good but...
by Skubdoo on 2019/11/07 23:12
This is a very good app. Good for the brain and fun. BUT! Too many ads must pay 9.99 to skip ads for a couple of weeks, too bad because it really ruins a good game—too greedy.
Leave my privacy alone
by Spoon1VIan on 2019/11/07 22:11
I have been enjoying playing this game. However, recent term changes went even deeper into mining my data, so I have deleted it. It’s too bad.
Best game ever
by nmbjr318 on 2019/11/07 19:41
Makes you think, it’s fun and educational.
Enjoying time spent
by ljzaclown on 2019/11/07 19:00
I no longer get the local newspaper so this is my way to continue enjoying crossword puzzles!
Great game, ads kill
by No money from me on 2019/11/07 16:53
The game concept and play is great! I love it! However, the 20 - 30 second ads that cannot be exited out of are killing the game. I understand fully the need for ads, but after each puzzle is overkill. Almost half the time I am in the game is spent waiting for the ads to play out. I find myself playing only one game before moving on. I would be willing to pay for ad free, but sadly that is not an option. I will be looking for another game of this type without the excessive ads.
Awful privacy policy!!!!
by kjbarberio on 2019/11/07 16:31
I loved playing this game but I just got a notification that the privacy policy had been updated. It states that they take info from your device and share it with third parties. I’m not interested in being part of anyone’s marketing plan. I would be happy to pay for the game instead of getting it free with my personal info being shared. Sorry, Cody Cross. I’m out. ✌🏼
Horrible update
by bobbie😀 on 2019/11/07 07:02
Horrible update. Game lags, crashes, way too many ads added, music and sound somehow became disoriented. Please fix this!!
Planet Earth
by Astroblue76 on 2019/11/07 04:12
Very fun and entertaining game. Hard to put down at times.
A little hard
by Ezic1234 on 2019/11/07 04:01
Some of the questions are hard and don’t quite make sense in my opinion
Love it
by coupotgma on 2019/11/07 02:58
Love the game but I’ve invited three people to play they are totally hooked yeah I never received the rewards and I’m bummed about that. But I do love the game I’m going to continue to play even if I never get the rewards. Okay
So Addictive
by ArtBoiCreative on 2019/11/07 00:43
Once you start, it will be hard to stop!
No Paid Version
by lynne9904 on 2019/11/06 21:16
This game is great but I hate having to watch a video to go to the next level. Wish there was a paid version to skip all of the ads.
Great game
by viviannastaisa on 2019/11/06 19:38
This is the best word puzzle thing I have ever play the other ones are good but the other ones are boring but this one has you have a lot of fun and the game is so amazing and addictive
Capital letters
by Candy918273645 on 2019/11/06 17:20
The new capital letters are too bold and bright. I love the game. It is my favorite. Very challenging and entertaining
Now I gotta find another game
by Defmakoa on 2019/11/06 15:01
I enjoyed playing this. I will not accept data collection so I can’t play so I deleted. Thanks for the fun while it lasted.
Addicting
by Jumbline on 2019/11/06 13:19
This game is hard to put down. It’s like trivia on steroids. Not only do you have to figure out the answer, you have to spell it correctly. I love that it covers so many different topics and subjects. The graphics are fun too. I love the little “hint” character. Download and play this game now. You won’t be disappointed.
Improve
by mrsgiebs on 2019/11/06 01:46
The one thing I need from this app is to add the ability to make it ad free during play and have the ability to watch an ad to gain your coins back. There are way too many ad interruptions
I love it
by Unikitty14 on 2019/11/05 21:53
I love it, it’s a great brain booster
Fun Type of Crossword
by Snobaby2 on 2019/11/05 21:50
I enjoy this type of crossword puzzle. The definitions are good, but not really easy, and there is another word within that enables you to find, which adds to the ability of solving the puzzle as a whole. I have played several of the games, so far, and enjoyed them, but I am not yet sure if they become ridiculously hard yet! So we will see!
Ads are annoying!
by gina831 on 2019/11/05 20:06
Is there a way to get rid of ads? Can’t stand them.
Update: Ads
by fried_egg_ samich on 2019/11/05 14:32
I appreciate the most recent upgrade and what seems Iike less ads but now they are popping up randomly and it’s very annoying. The worst thing to me though is the ads that open my App Store without my permission. My suggestion for ad placement is between groups not the puzzles. It would make for a smoother interface than what’s going on now. I enjoy playing this game but as I grow more annoyed with it I am more likely to just give up on it. I had to stop playing earlier today because I became to irritated to play anymore.
Privacy issues
by jenn and steve on 2019/11/05 13:55
I used to love this game but with the new privacy issue and not being able to opt out and still play I have to delete it. I will not sign away my information just to play a word game.
Fun but a bit repetitive
by Sherell Brazier on 2019/11/05 07:01
It’s an incredible game with a really fun and adorable art style. My only trouble is that after only having the game for a week or two there has been some repetitive words. It could be that mine is glitched but overall I am very happy with this game.
Eh
by zuueoh on 2019/11/05 04:12
Graphics are good, concept is good. The hints for the words are ridiculous though and reference generally uncommon things that the general population has never heard before.
Cody Cross
by Brqpi2 on 2019/11/05 01:41
This game is fun, but all the ads that appear for other games when a level is finished is just downright irritating
Love this game... BUT THE KEYBOARD
by azazel_thedemon on 2019/11/05 01:01
This game is great and challenging but the one thing that gets on my nerves is the keyboard. It’s kinda glitchy and you can’t type fast on it or it’ll write what you don’t want it to
The Best
by DragonflyFl on 2019/11/05 00:59
I am addicted! The best game I have ever found. Makes you think, surprise yourself, use the dictionary and google a couple of times. I keep finding myself grabbing my phone to play this game for “just a minute” and put it down an hour later. I do wish it was a purchase game since I hate the commercial interruptions.
Sharing info
by Kahuna 18 on 2019/11/04 22:08
Great game but box just popped up stating that they share your information with third parties
Update problems

I was enjoying this game until the recent update. It’s slower and crashes from time to time. Never had any problems prior to this latest update.

The game is great, and I really enjoy playing it. The ads are really annoying after awhile though unfortunately.
Big brother of games
by another1984 on 2019/11/03 21:02
Don’t know about the game, I can’t get past to play without giving them the ability to take everything of information on my phone. Why do you need this info for a stupid crossword game.

by jdavis0711 on 2019/11/03 12:52
** updated review** After recent update this week, bug was fixed so I fixed my review. Thank you because now I can play again. I love playing this game but since the recent update, it won’t let me play. It would be a 5 star game for me but I can’t play it. Every time I click on the level I’m on then a number 1-5, it kicks me out of the game. Please fix so I can get back to playing a game I love and change the rating. Thank you!
❤️ It!
by hobsonlynne on 2019/11/03 12:18
Really love this game, but I wish there were no ads. I would pay a little to have no ads. Or if the ads were shorter that’d be even better.

Fun, but flawed
by Warpath94 on 2019/11/02 21:13
It's a very fun game, don't get me wrong. I can fire it up and solve a couple puzzles on break and when I need to clock back in I can stop any time without losing progress. My issues with the game, however, are how it likes to crash if I try to swipe down to check my battery and also the backspace button is really small and easy to miss, leading to many mistakes that could have easily been corrected.
Crashes

The ads are awful!
by Danni Lee 1019 on 2019/11/02 01:55
I love the game but the ads are awful. The “close” x moves around, changes form (sometimes it has a square, sometimes not)... Sometimes the x doesn’t work at all. I searched for how to remove ads... it said to open the “packs” page and I could subscribe... Can’t find a packs page in the app. Also it seems the longer I play, the more ads I get. I played the first 2 groups or so with only 1 or 2 ads. Now there’s an ad after each level. :( Give me an option to eliminate ads forever and I’ll keep playing. Otherwise you’ll have to go, Cody.
I need a harder version

Fun & Challenging
by crushcutie on 2019/11/01 21:54
CodyCross is my all time favorite word game! I learn something new every day & I love that. Keeps me on my toes!
🤘 CodyCross ROCKS!!! 🤘
by 🦄SparklyRainbowUnicorn🦄 on 2019/11/01 21:30
I downloaded this app only a day ago and now I'm addicted to it. This is one of the greatest games I've ever downloaded! It's great for lots of reasons. For one, it has no ads. Most apps have ads that take a while to finish or that make the device close down, but not CodyCross! There have been zero glitches and it runs very smoothly. Most of the other apps I've purchased shut down or crash, maybe bc I don't have space or they're just bad apps, but this has been one of the smoothest-running apps I've had yet. And plus, this is a great educational app. It helps build your knowledge of the meanings of words. This app is great!!! Would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for fun apps. This is number one on my list of the best apps I've ever had!!! 😀😜😂🤘👍🏻
Wow
by Unwaveringcookie on 2019/11/01 20:25
This is very good it’s now one of my favorite games I love this game it’s so fun and awesome I’m addict to this game you should definitely get it take my word
Great game
by monrianb on 2019/11/01 15:49
Great game but it needs to have more nerd related questions. I’m.a huge comic book fan and love questions of anything comic book related
Great!
by Mardigrasmawmaw on 2019/11/01 14:42
I am not a game person, but this one is tops in my book. It’s actually addictive. It will test not only your memory, knowledge but your spelling as well. You would be surprised how much you know. The best point is you can obtain extra points very easily.
Need ad free version
by miss_fee_ on 2019/11/01 14:11
It’s a little too simple for me, a 30 year old, but it’s okay considering it’s meant to be for varying ages. I just wish I could purchase an ad free version. Having to wait to get through 2 ads every time I finish a level is annoying.
Sub To Remove Ads, Non-Starter
by C11ris on 2019/11/01 00:49
Game is ok, although easy. Hate the trend of subscriptions to remove ads. I would pay a few dollars once, $5/week is laughable. Ads between every level mean you will watch more than play.
Word To The Wise
by Crystll222 on 2019/10/31 19:48
If you’re an average wordie, this is a really fun game. Between the clues given and the subsequent letters falling into place, it’s just challenging enough to complete several rounds while standing in line, waiting for all the things we stand in line for. The graphics and music (if you listen to the music) help to hold your attention as you play each round, advancing as you play. However, if you’re a seriously advanced wordie, you’ll probably find the game too easy. Even so, the graphics could hook you in, while the music entertains you.

Great Game but the Ads!
by clt8 on 2019/10/31 16:29
Thoroughly enjoy this game, but the ads after almost every word completely takes away from it. Would happily pay for an ad free version...
Ads
by Viningsgal on 2019/10/31 03:29
There are way too many ads. I understand they need them but there is no way to pay to get rid of ads. Major flaw
Pretty fun!
by timeshouldntstandstill on 2019/10/31 03:12
I think the only thing I would change about the game is that if you misspell the word, instead of deleting the whole word, just delete the letter that is not correct. That would help for some of the words with tricky spelling! Otherwise this game is pretty fun!
Update...DO NOT AGREED TO PRIVACY POLICY...
by dedgeworth on 2019/10/30 15:09
Today I agreed to latest privacy policy changes in CodyCross. Now it will not load. Closes itself in seconds. Update...Thank you, the issue is definitely resolved. Unsure if it was related to the new privacy policy or the Apple update, but it is now working. Your quick response to me directly was surprising (wish other apps did the same😒) and appreciated. Thank you again!
Keeps crashing
by FortisVoluntatis on 2019/10/30 04:14
It keeps crashing lately, which is a shame because I like the game. If it was working, I would have given it more stars, but it doesn’t even work now.
Addicting and Challenging, Way too many ads on apple.
by Kbjr on 2019/10/30 02:06
Fun game. Different than the rest. Worth a try. Wish they would add a google option to link accounts for those who don’t have facebook. Also wish they would add a pay option... ad revenue is important...but please allow those to pay to avoid it..two per round is excessive. You have to watch 80% of it before you can X out to the next one.. bad business.. still a FIVE STAR for the refreshing change of game types..HOWEVER....a strong 3 STAR for the ads...so annoying.
Unplayable since last update
by Nickname?!?!? What? on 2019/10/30 01:48
This game was great, 4-5 stars, until this last update made it crash upon launch if played while online, even with airline mode. When I played it out of wifi range, I had to redo two entire sets of five puzzles that I had already completed.
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 Game, But A Few Things Need To Be Fixed!
by Autumnwolf2015 on 2019/10/28 21:44
The game itself is great. I love how many worlds there are, and how many puzzles are within each world. I hope you guys continue to keep adding more in the future. Maybe a futuristic world. The reason I only game it 3 stars, is because for one, you guys completely broke rotation for iPad. It doesn’t work at all. Speaking of rotation, for the love of all things CodyCross, PLEASE ADD IPAD LANDSCAPE MODE SUPPORT!!! The second reason I gave this game 3 stars is because of how the advertisements in work in this game. I realize ads help keep this game free, but I don’t appreciate when an advertisement automatically opens my App Store to go straight to the game or app that’s being advertised without my consent. I don’t even have to tap anything on the screen for it to do this. You guys need to fix this if this is a problem on your end. No advertisement should be allowed to do this. Ever. Also, I’m not sure if it’s just because of the Halloween theme, but the tones for when typing seem to be lagging and way out of pitch. And when typing on the keyboard it also lags as well. I hope you guys address these issues. Thanks.
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.
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.
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!
The good and the bad
by AZ SLP on 2019/10/19 17:59
I read a review about this app before I bought it. It was from a young man who stated that he had not had all the advantages of a mother reading to him, a solid educational base, and the opportunities afforded by life experiences. Indeed, this game would be difficult under those circumstances. He also pointed out that it would be too difficult for most children (it is rated for 4+ years). This is a game for adults. When I play I have to have plenty of time and patience. The advertisements between puzzles are irritating. I would rather spend some money to stop all ads. There is an option of a monthly subscription to end the ads or fork over some $$ to go add free for “x” number of puzzles but I would prefer a one and done payment. I also agree with another player who indicated that the spaceman is a little juvenile, I agree. This game will most likely be eliminated from my iPad.
🤘 CodyCross ROCKS!!! 🤘
by 🦄SparklyRainbowUnicorn🦄 on 2019/11/01 21:30
I downloaded this app only a day ago and now I'm addicted to it. This is one of the greatest games I've ever downloaded! It's great for lots of reasons. For one, it has no ads. Most apps have ads that take a while to finish or that make the device close down, but not CodyCross! There have been zero glitches and it runs very smoothly. Most of the other apps I've purchased shut down or crash, maybe bc I don't have space or they're just bad apps, but this has been one of the smoothest-running apps I've had yet. And plus, this is a great educational app. It helps build your knowledge of the meanings of words. This app is great!!! Would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for fun apps. This is number one on my list of the best apps I've ever had!!! 😀😜😂🤘👍🏻
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 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.
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 (:
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!!!
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.
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.
I’m Hooked
by cmm472 on 2019/10/23 02:26
This is the best word game I’ve downloaded, it’s my second session and I’m on level 12. The puzzles have just the right amount of difficulty so that it’s fun, I might try hard mode next time. I like that you can play the full game instead of just a few levels. My only complaint is the ads, I’d love to have a way to pay a fee and play ad-free, especially when it keeps sucking you in to the App Store to download another game. This is a good one for anyone trying to improve their vocabulary and word buffs in general, I’m looking forward to playing more levels, thanks for the great job.
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/
This Game Is Amazing!!
by Bethqwerty on 2019/10/20 01:45
I absolutely love this game! It is great how it puts your smarts to the test! I rarely have to use hints to help me solve the puzzles, so I’ve racked up a few coins! I only have two suggestions though, I think every puzzle should have its own category. For example, if the puzzle’s category is technology, then all of the words in that puzzle would be a type of technology. There should also be vertical words on every column, not only the main word that shows up when the puzzle is complete! Thanks so much for taking the time to read my suggestions, and please consider my ideas.
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.
No more ads
by Jelihan on 2019/09/29 19:23
I love this app so much, it’s really fun and it gives you knowledge of stuff you might need to learn one day. The only “problem” I have with it is that every time I finish a puzzle, there’s an ad EVERY SINGLE TIME! And the worse part is that it’s the same as which makes it even more annoying. I don’t know if it is their fault or if it’s just the game, but ether way I don’t like that. I mean I don’t care if there’s a little bit of ads here and there, but I don’t want there to be an ad every single time. If they could reach out to me and and tell me what’s going on, then I will bring that star up to a 5 but for now it’s going to be a 4. Thank you!
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!
Ads with sound a big no no
by MansterRock on 2019/09/29 13:19
I love this crossword game. I like that I can start and stop whenever I want, it’s challenging. But not so hard that I give up after 5 or 6 levels. I like that I don’t have to spend money to play. I would actually support the game with in-app purchases. And here are the why I won’t. What I don’t like fall into two annoyance categories First - advertising- I actually do not mind seeing the ads. BUT when those ads ignore my phone system sound settings such as when I have the volume switch set to vibrate, the ads just ignore it. Not cool if I am in a quiet car on a train or any quiet location and I put my phone on vibrate, an advertisement should not have the ability to over ride that system setting. Specifically Angry Birds ads do this as others but I can’t remember the others. Second- the keyboard is glitchy. I hit a b it puts an n. And so on for I o pair and r t pair. Etc. the second part is that you don’t give me a chance to fix it without typing all the letters in again. You have the on screen room. Make the keys a little bigger and give me a chance to correct the mistake without wiping out all the letters and doing starting from scratch on a mistake.
Addicting and Challenging, Way too many ads on apple.
by Kbjr on 2019/10/30 02:06
Fun game. Different than the rest. Worth a try. Wish they would add a google option to link accounts for those who don’t have facebook. Also wish they would add a pay option... ad revenue is important...but please allow those to pay to avoid it..two per round is excessive. You have to watch 80% of it before you can X out to the next one.. bad business.. still a FIVE STAR for the refreshing change of game types..HOWEVER....a strong 3 STAR for the ads...so annoying.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
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!
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

Stop with the bee

Stop making the bee tell me to drag him. It covers the keypad and I can’t type. It’s annoying. He says it like 10 times a game.
Annoying ad
by Omalape on 2019/11/14 06:42
The Dollar Shave Club ad was fixed for a day but now it is back to not letting you out of the ad. I have to turn my iPad off and restart to get rid of the ad. Really enjoy playing Cody Cross and want to keep playing. Please fix the ad again.
One way to make it better!
by Chuckles0419 on 2019/11/13 22:54
Love the game! Very addictive. I even paid to remove ads and be able to play the packs category. One thing I think would make it better is if when answering a question and you get one or two letters wrong, just delete the letters you got wrong instead of the whole word. Sometimes I have known the answer and the whole word was deleted because of one letter weather I spelled it wrong or mistyped the word.
Don’t know what to put here

Like this game but...
by McKsnug on 2019/11/13 15:32
This game is fun, however, in between each level, there are advertisements of other games or apps, and it is extremely irritating. Maybe the developer can cut down the advertisements to every other level, or people can pay to have them removed. Each advertisement is about 30 seconds long and it gets tiresome. If you like this game enough, I suggest you pay to remove the ads.
Wordlover
by No name lass on 2019/11/13 06:29
Like the game. Keeps me challenged. A different type of crossword puzzle. One thing that I don’t like. Far too many of the words are obscure proper nouns - names of people or places - otherwise a great game.
Frustrating
by Margo mp on 2019/11/13 04:04
I would give this a 5 Star review but it’s frustrating that I can’t get hints when offered. Never able to get the free hints.
Great game, horrible ads
by puzzl0v3r on 2019/11/13 01:34
As others have stated, the game is appropriately challenging and fun but the ads keep me from wanting to play the game. I understand they are needed in order to keep the app free but it is concerning that some of the ads automatically open the App Store after running a video for 15-30 seconds. I would like to see the X (close) option rather than an arrow directing me to open the App Store or for it to automatically open it. The ad developers need to learn that annoying the market is not a way to get customers. Please change this feature or I will be deleting the game.

Too. Many. Ads.
by Metoomonkey on 2019/11/12 05:54
I enjoy the game; but the ads are beyond annoying. If I could play without them; I’d give it 5 stars.
Love it ....but
by Saxxye on 2019/11/12 04:59
I have been playing this for a while and had purchased the ad free but then I could afford to keep it up so now I am playing with ads which I am finding more and more annoying. On top of that there is reference to Christianity questions in every puzzle which I am beginning to find offensive as other religions are not mentioned. There are also some answers and even clues that require Google searches to figure out. Starting not to be fun anymore. Will probably uninstall and look elsewhere to keep my brain stimulated.
It was all going great
by Zoo box on 2019/11/11 23:39

by Cd127652000 on 2019/11/10 16:29
The game is very well put together, and not too hard. However, the music is a little dissonant and ominous. There is even a point in the music where it sounds like a creepy squeaky door is opening and it’s kind of freaky 😂 Overall, I love the game.

Comment
by HeyJude0103 on 2019/11/08 17:15
I like the game but I’d like the comments at the end of each puzzle to read “easy” & “hard” rather than “fun” & “boring”. It would also give you better feedback also.

LOVE IT
by GameLover563412 on 2019/11/08 01:17
Now I’ve been looking at reviews and I’ve noticed people saying that the questions are too hard, yet I disagree. I think they are not to hard, yet not to easy. It’s not laggy and it helps my understanding of history. The man who created the theory of evolution was Darwin, and Queen Elizabeth l was born when Shakespeare was around. I never New this before so, this is great for your mind! P.S. it didn’t even ask me to review, I came into apps and did it myself which never happens. Sincerely, Happy CodyCross Player
Love and hate
by Pita 224 on 2019/11/08 00:58
I really like the questions and graphics but hate the amount of ads. Seriously! You do NOT need an ad every 3 minutes and repeating ads at that. Love the game but hate, HATE, HATE the amount of ads. Deleting the game.
Good but...
by Skubdoo on 2019/11/07 23:12
This is a very good app. Good for the brain and fun. BUT! Too many ads must pay 9.99 to skip ads for a couple of weeks, too bad because it really ruins a good game—too greedy.
Leave my privacy alone
by Spoon1VIan on 2019/11/07 22:11
I have been enjoying playing this game. However, recent term changes went even deeper into mining my data, so I have deleted it. It’s too bad.

Great game, ads kill
by No money from me on 2019/11/07 16:53
The game concept and play is great! I love it! However, the 20 - 30 second ads that cannot be exited out of are killing the game. I understand fully the need for ads, but after each puzzle is overkill. Almost half the time I am in the game is spent waiting for the ads to play out. I find myself playing only one game before moving on. I would be willing to pay for ad free, but sadly that is not an option. I will be looking for another game of this type without the excessive ads.
Awful privacy policy!!!!
by kjbarberio on 2019/11/07 16:31
I loved playing this game but I just got a notification that the privacy policy had been updated. It states that they take info from your device and share it with third parties. I’m not interested in being part of anyone’s marketing plan. I would be happy to pay for the game instead of getting it free with my personal info being shared. Sorry, Cody Cross. I’m out. ✌🏼

by coupotgma on 2019/11/07 02:58
Love the game but I’ve invited three people to play they are totally hooked yeah I never received the rewards and I’m bummed about that. But I do love the game I’m going to continue to play even if I never get the rewards. Okay
So Addictive
by ArtBoiCreative on 2019/11/07 00:43
Once you start, it will be hard to stop!
No Paid Version
by lynne9904 on 2019/11/06 21:16
This game is great but I hate having to watch a video to go to the next level. Wish there was a paid version to skip all of the ads.
Great game
by viviannastaisa on 2019/11/06 19:38
This is the best word puzzle thing I have ever play the other ones are good but the other ones are boring but this one has you have a lot of fun and the game is so amazing and addictive
Capital letters
by Candy918273645 on 2019/11/06 17:20
The new capital letters are too bold and bright. I love the game. It is my favorite. Very challenging and entertaining
Now I gotta find another game
by Defmakoa on 2019/11/06 15:01
I enjoyed playing this. I will not accept data collection so I can’t play so I deleted. Thanks for the fun while it lasted.
Addicting
by Jumbline on 2019/11/06 13:19
This game is hard to put down. It’s like trivia on steroids. Not only do you have to figure out the answer, you have to spell it correctly. I love that it covers so many different topics and subjects. The graphics are fun too. I love the little “hint” character. Download and play this game now. You won’t be disappointed.
Improve
by mrsgiebs on 2019/11/06 01:46
The one thing I need from this app is to add the ability to make it ad free during play and have the ability to watch an ad to gain your coins back. There are way too many ad interruptions
I love it
by Unikitty14 on 2019/11/05 21:53
I love it, it’s a great brain booster
Fun Type of Crossword
by Snobaby2 on 2019/11/05 21:50
I enjoy this type of crossword puzzle. The definitions are good, but not really easy, and there is another word within that enables you to find, which adds to the ability of solving the puzzle as a whole. I have played several of the games, so far, and enjoyed them, but I am not yet sure if they become ridiculously hard yet! So we will see!
Ads are annoying!
by gina831 on 2019/11/05 20:06
Is there a way to get rid of ads? Can’t stand them.
Update: Ads
by fried_egg_ samich on 2019/11/05 14:32
I appreciate the most recent upgrade and what seems Iike less ads but now they are popping up randomly and it’s very annoying. The worst thing to me though is the ads that open my App Store without my permission. My suggestion for ad placement is between groups not the puzzles. It would make for a smoother interface than what’s going on now. I enjoy playing this game but as I grow more annoyed with it I am more likely to just give up on it. I had to stop playing earlier today because I became to irritated to play anymore.
Privacy issues
by jenn and steve on 2019/11/05 13:55
I used to love this game but with the new privacy issue and not being able to opt out and still play I have to delete it. I will not sign away my information just to play a word game.
Fun but a bit repetitive
by Sherell Brazier on 2019/11/05 07:01
It’s an incredible game with a really fun and adorable art style. My only trouble is that after only having the game for a week or two there has been some repetitive words. It could be that mine is glitched but overall I am very happy with this game.
Eh
by zuueoh on 2019/11/05 04:12
Graphics are good, concept is good. The hints for the words are ridiculous though and reference generally uncommon things that the general population has never heard before.
Cody Cross
by Brqpi2 on 2019/11/05 01:41
This game is fun, but all the ads that appear for other games when a level is finished is just downright irritating
Love this game... BUT THE KEYBOARD
by azazel_thedemon on 2019/11/05 01:01
This game is great and challenging but the one thing that gets on my nerves is the keyboard. It’s kinda glitchy and you can’t type fast on it or it’ll write what you don’t want it to
The Best
by DragonflyFl on 2019/11/05 00:59
I am addicted! The best game I have ever found. Makes you think, surprise yourself, use the dictionary and google a couple of times. I keep finding myself grabbing my phone to play this game for “just a minute” and put it down an hour later. I do wish it was a purchase game since I hate the commercial interruptions.

by jdavis0711 on 2019/11/03 12:52
** updated review** After recent update this week, bug was fixed so I fixed my review. Thank you because now I can play again. I love playing this game but since the recent update, it won’t let me play. It would be a 5 star game for me but I can’t play it. Every time I click on the level I’m on then a number 1-5, it kicks me out of the game. Please fix so I can get back to playing a game I love and change the rating. Thank you!
❤️ It!
by hobsonlynne on 2019/11/03 12:18
Really love this game, but I wish there were no ads. I would pay a little to have no ads. Or if the ads were shorter that’d be even better.

Fun, but flawed
by Warpath94 on 2019/11/02 21:13
It's a very fun game, don't get me wrong. I can fire it up and solve a couple puzzles on break and when I need to clock back in I can stop any time without losing progress. My issues with the game, however, are how it likes to crash if I try to swipe down to check my battery and also the backspace button is really small and easy to miss, leading to many mistakes that could have easily been corrected.
Crashes
by Coolguy719719 on 2019/11/02 17:00

The ads are awful!
by Danni Lee 1019 on 2019/11/02 01:55
I love the game but the ads are awful. The “close” x moves around, changes form (sometimes it has a square, sometimes not)... Sometimes the x doesn’t work at all. I searched for how to remove ads... it said to open the “packs” page and I could subscribe... Can’t find a packs page in the app. Also it seems the longer I play, the more ads I get. I played the first 2 groups or so with only 1 or 2 ads. Now there’s an ad after each level. :( Give me an option to eliminate ads forever and I’ll keep playing. Otherwise you’ll have to go, Cody.

CodyCross is my all time favorite word game! I learn something new every day & I love that. Keeps me on my toes!
🤘 CodyCross ROCKS!!! 🤘
by 🦄SparklyRainbowUnicorn🦄 on 2019/11/01 21:30
I downloaded this app only a day ago and now I'm addicted to it. This is one of the greatest games I've ever downloaded! It's great for lots of reasons. For one, it has no ads. Most apps have ads that take a while to finish or that make the device close down, but not CodyCross! There have been zero glitches and it runs very smoothly. Most of the other apps I've purchased shut down or crash, maybe bc I don't have space or they're just bad apps, but this has been one of the smoothest-running apps I've had yet. And plus, this is a great educational app. It helps build your knowledge of the meanings of words. This app is great!!! Would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for fun apps. This is number one on my list of the best apps I've ever had!!! 😀😜😂🤘👍🏻
Wow
by Unwaveringcookie on 2019/11/01 20:25
This is very good it’s now one of my favorite games I love this game it’s so fun and awesome I’m addict to this game you should definitely get it take my word
Great game
by monrianb on 2019/11/01 15:49
Great game but it needs to have more nerd related questions. I’m.a huge comic book fan and love questions of anything comic book related
Great!
by Mardigrasmawmaw on 2019/11/01 14:42
I am not a game person, but this one is tops in my book. It’s actually addictive. It will test not only your memory, knowledge but your spelling as well. You would be surprised how much you know. The best point is you can obtain extra points very easily.
Need ad free version
by miss_fee_ on 2019/11/01 14:11
It’s a little too simple for me, a 30 year old, but it’s okay considering it’s meant to be for varying ages. I just wish I could purchase an ad free version. Having to wait to get through 2 ads every time I finish a level is annoying.
Sub To Remove Ads, Non-Starter
by C11ris on 2019/11/01 00:49
Game is ok, although easy. Hate the trend of subscriptions to remove ads. I would pay a few dollars once, $5/week is laughable. Ads between every level mean you will watch more than play.
Word To The Wise
by Crystll222 on 2019/10/31 19:48
If you’re an average wordie, this is a really fun game. Between the clues given and the subsequent letters falling into place, it’s just challenging enough to complete several rounds while standing in line, waiting for all the things we stand in line for. The graphics and music (if you listen to the music) help to hold your attention as you play each round, advancing as you play. However, if you’re a seriously advanced wordie, you’ll probably find the game too easy. Even so, the graphics could hook you in, while the music entertains you.

Great Game but the Ads!
by clt8 on 2019/10/31 16:29
Thoroughly enjoy this game, but the ads after almost every word completely takes away from it. Would happily pay for an ad free version...
Ads
by Viningsgal on 2019/10/31 03:29
There are way too many ads. I understand they need them but there is no way to pay to get rid of ads. Major flaw
Pretty fun!
by timeshouldntstandstill on 2019/10/31 03:12
I think the only thing I would change about the game is that if you misspell the word, instead of deleting the whole word, just delete the letter that is not correct. That would help for some of the words with tricky spelling! Otherwise this game is pretty fun!
Update...DO NOT AGREED TO PRIVACY POLICY...
by dedgeworth on 2019/10/30 15:09
Today I agreed to latest privacy policy changes in CodyCross. Now it will not load. Closes itself in seconds. Update...Thank you, the issue is definitely resolved. Unsure if it was related to the new privacy policy or the Apple update, but it is now working. Your quick response to me directly was surprising (wish other apps did the same😒) and appreciated. Thank you again!
Keeps crashing
by FortisVoluntatis on 2019/10/30 04:14
It keeps crashing lately, which is a shame because I like the game. If it was working, I would have given it more stars, but it doesn’t even work now.
Addicting and Challenging, Way too many ads on apple.
by Kbjr on 2019/10/30 02:06
Fun game. Different than the rest. Worth a try. Wish they would add a google option to link accounts for those who don’t have facebook. Also wish they would add a pay option... ad revenue is important...but please allow those to pay to avoid it..two per round is excessive. You have to watch 80% of it before you can X out to the next one.. bad business.. still a FIVE STAR for the refreshing change of game types..HOWEVER....a strong 3 STAR for the ads...so annoying.
Unplayable since last update
by Nickname?!?!? What? on 2019/10/30 01:48
This game was great, 4-5 stars, until this last update made it crash upon launch if played while online, even with airline mode. When I played it out of wifi range, I had to redo two entire sets of five puzzles that I had already completed.
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 Game, But A Few Things Need To Be Fixed!
by Autumnwolf2015 on 2019/10/28 21:44
The game itself is great. I love how many worlds there are, and how many puzzles are within each world. I hope you guys continue to keep adding more in the future. Maybe a futuristic world. The reason I only game it 3 stars, is because for one, you guys completely broke rotation for iPad. It doesn’t work at all. Speaking of rotation, for the love of all things CodyCross, PLEASE ADD IPAD LANDSCAPE MODE SUPPORT!!! The second reason I gave this game 3 stars is because of how the advertisements in work in this game. I realize ads help keep this game free, but I don’t appreciate when an advertisement automatically opens my App Store to go straight to the game or app that’s being advertised without my consent. I don’t even have to tap anything on the screen for it to do this. You guys need to fix this if this is a problem on your end. No advertisement should be allowed to do this. Ever. Also, I’m not sure if it’s just because of the Halloween theme, but the tones for when typing seem to be lagging and way out of pitch. And when typing on the keyboard it also lags as well. I hope you guys address these issues. Thanks.
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.
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.
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!
The good and the bad
by AZ SLP on 2019/10/19 17:59
I read a review about this app before I bought it. It was from a young man who stated that he had not had all the advantages of a mother reading to him, a solid educational base, and the opportunities afforded by life experiences. Indeed, this game would be difficult under those circumstances. He also pointed out that it would be too difficult for most children (it is rated for 4+ years). This is a game for adults. When I play I have to have plenty of time and patience. The advertisements between puzzles are irritating. I would rather spend some money to stop all ads. There is an option of a monthly subscription to end the ads or fork over some $$ to go add free for “x” number of puzzles but I would prefer a one and done payment. I also agree with another player who indicated that the spaceman is a little juvenile, I agree. This game will most likely be eliminated from my iPad.

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

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 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.
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 (:
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!!!
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.
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.
I’m Hooked
by cmm472 on 2019/10/23 02:26
This is the best word game I’ve downloaded, it’s my second session and I’m on level 12. The puzzles have just the right amount of difficulty so that it’s fun, I might try hard mode next time. I like that you can play the full game instead of just a few levels. My only complaint is the ads, I’d love to have a way to pay a fee and play ad-free, especially when it keeps sucking you in to the App Store to download another game. This is a good one for anyone trying to improve their vocabulary and word buffs in general, I’m looking forward to playing more levels, thanks for the great job.
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/
This Game Is Amazing!!
by Bethqwerty on 2019/10/20 01:45
I absolutely love this game! It is great how it puts your smarts to the test! I rarely have to use hints to help me solve the puzzles, so I’ve racked up a few coins! I only have two suggestions though, I think every puzzle should have its own category. For example, if the puzzle’s category is technology, then all of the words in that puzzle would be a type of technology. There should also be vertical words on every column, not only the main word that shows up when the puzzle is complete! Thanks so much for taking the time to read my suggestions, and please consider my ideas.
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.
No more ads
by Jelihan on 2019/09/29 19:23
I love this app so much, it’s really fun and it gives you knowledge of stuff you might need to learn one day. The only “problem” I have with it is that every time I finish a puzzle, there’s an ad EVERY SINGLE TIME! And the worse part is that it’s the same as which makes it even more annoying. I don’t know if it is their fault or if it’s just the game, but ether way I don’t like that. I mean I don’t care if there’s a little bit of ads here and there, but I don’t want there to be an ad every single time. If they could reach out to me and and tell me what’s going on, then I will bring that star up to a 5 but for now it’s going to be a 4. Thank you!
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!
Ads with sound a big no no
by MansterRock on 2019/09/29 13:19
I love this crossword game. I like that I can start and stop whenever I want, it’s challenging. But not so hard that I give up after 5 or 6 levels. I like that I don’t have to spend money to play. I would actually support the game with in-app purchases. And here are the why I won’t. What I don’t like fall into two annoyance categories First - advertising- I actually do not mind seeing the ads. BUT when those ads ignore my phone system sound settings such as when I have the volume switch set to vibrate, the ads just ignore it. Not cool if I am in a quiet car on a train or any quiet location and I put my phone on vibrate, an advertisement should not have the ability to over ride that system setting. Specifically Angry Birds ads do this as others but I can’t remember the others. Second- the keyboard is glitchy. I hit a b it puts an n. And so on for I o pair and r t pair. Etc. the second part is that you don’t give me a chance to fix it without typing all the letters in again. You have the on screen room. Make the keys a little bigger and give me a chance to correct the mistake without wiping out all the letters and doing starting from scratch on a mistake.
Addicting and Challenging, Way too many ads on apple.
by Kbjr on 2019/10/30 02:06
Fun game. Different than the rest. Worth a try. Wish they would add a google option to link accounts for those who don’t have facebook. Also wish they would add a pay option... ad revenue is important...but please allow those to pay to avoid it..two per round is excessive. You have to watch 80% of it before you can X out to the next one.. bad business.. still a FIVE STAR for the refreshing change of game types..HOWEVER....a strong 3 STAR for the ads...so annoying.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
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!
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
