Bug
by SliminAZ on 2019/05/21 03:11
Hi. I’m in the Department Stores game and there is an ad/ bug driving me insane. It lasts for 45 seconds and there is no way to exit out. Moreover, it isn’t really an ad for anything. It looks like a pinball game, but there’s no name being advertised nor a way to purchase if someone were so inclined. Please fix. Thank you!
Could have loved it!
by Envisages on 2019/05/21 01:31
Great idea, fun to play! But the constant ads, pushing their subscription plans, just feels like every other pay to win game. Would have paid for a real version maybe even a season pass for extra content, but you shouldn’t have to pay every month!
Add a few stars because you have earned them....
by 1stCeye on 2019/05/20 22:47
First! I’m 66 years old and I think the ‘space cadet’ as someone called him is the cutest thing I have seen in quite awhile....a lot of work went into that graphic and I want to just hug him....The little letter elf is a great idea...with only one coin deducted....I have just played the first 10 games, I LOVE IT and I consider myself very lucky to have found a game of this quality and entertainment! The musical notes that accompany typing in letters are TONE PERFECT and a joy to my perfectly pitched ears! The puzzles have a ‘sort’ of definition for each line...when you type in a word, the letters you have found, travel off into other words that also use those letters....great for me, since remembering some words are a battle; Aphasia, ya know. But I enjoy this game all the more..I can describe the word I want...the extra letters give me clues and so this game is actually HELPING ME reconnect lost neurons...it will be easier the next time I want to recall this word....fantastic! I hope and pray that this game remains as good as it is now...it’s 2300 hours and I don’t want to go to bed.....I wanna play some more.....my Docs will be hiding this device next....😀😀😀 I cannot praise this game highly enough! DAYS LATER....answers are funny and you can use YouTube for answers....I went looking for a CONEHEAD ANSWER and it actually said, “if your looking for CodyCross Conehead answer, it’s here,....” I laughed myself silly...you know..it WAITING for players to come looking. I guess us old-timers forget stuff that we watched....I will bet that that question is the first HARD question....LOVE IT....ENJOY IT, everyone....
My new favorite game
by Lmedina76 on 2019/05/20 22:45
It is fun and engaging.
Too many
by Bapaintoo on 2019/05/20 21:43
There are too many advertisements. It makes me want to delete app.
Very good game
by Cotryan on 2019/05/20 15:44
This game is very fun and can teach you many words.
Helping the memory
by BuckeyeGirl3 on 2019/05/20 04:18
After having 3 brain surgeries, I needed something that would challenge my brain in remembering words. This does help me to challenge my brain in remembering easy names. I highly recommend this game to help you to remember even the slightest things.
Five stars
by RaeMadison on 2019/05/19 19:39
Best word game! Keeps you thinking. Educational.
Boring
by Sophiesmom09 on 2019/05/19 17:42
The ads that pop up after every round is annoying. The only way to get rid of the ads is if you pay. I’d pay if it were a bit more exciting. You just go through different puzzles. No points, no bonus. I’m officially bored with it.
Ridiculous ads
by Tex862 on 2019/05/19 16:21
Could be a really fun game if you didn’t have to watch an ad after EVERY SINGLE PUZZLE! I understand ads are necessary to keep the game free, but that many is just ridiculous. There’s no need for it and it caused me to delete the game because I got tired of watching ads more than playing the game.
Crashes
by Playwnana on 2019/05/19 15:00
This game is enjoyable but all of a sudden it keeps crashing after completing a puzzle. Very frustrating.

Fun and challenging, not too hard but not too easy. Sometimes fast paced and sometime a little slower. A good variety of puzzles.
My opinion
by 928apache on 2019/05/18 19:41
My new favorite game next to the original crosswords.
Ambiguity
by Dragging In the Morning on 2019/05/18 03:34
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. I’ve played several repeats just in the past few 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!
Terrible
by fhfhjrjjeieneuwnejenrvhekwbwve on 2019/05/18 00:42
Some questions are good but most questions are simply ridiculous and idiotic
Fun
by jackofall52 on 2019/05/17 22:54
Great game. Currently my “go to” when I have a few minutes of down time.
Fun but...
by JSRiver on 2019/05/17 12:45
The game is fun with a few exceptions. 1. ADS. There are way too many of them. Haven’t seen anything where you can pay to get rid of them. I hate that sometimes when you x out of an ad, you get a second ad. I can tell you right now, I don’t download games from the ads in other games. 2. The annoying little thing that pops up at the bottom asking to rate this question as boring or fun. They are all boring individually. It’s only as a group they are fun. 3. I agree with another reviewer that some of the definitions are misleading and take you down the wrong path. 4. Nowhere that I have seen does it say that the answers might be two words. That being said, the game is enjoyable except for the above items
Tokens
by skpllc on 2019/05/17 06:57
How can you get tokens without paying or referrals
Love It, But One Thing...
by Nori🤙 on 2019/05/17 01:31
I adore this game. From the cute background it presents to the interesting, topical words that most games don’t use—I love it! I do wish that one thing would be altered though. I feel that, when a word is completed, there are too many extra letters being given out. I really think it ruins the challenge of figuring out the words since eventually some will be fully filled for you. Maybe one or two extra letters being given out would suffice? Thanks for a great game, if you devs see this! Keep up the great work!
Core gameplay fun, mechanics frustrating
by HaltFire on 2019/05/16 23:40
I enjoy the puzzle aspect of the game, and the clues haven't been difficult enough for me to fail yet. My biggest issue is the mechanics the game includes. I would rather type out the full word and submit rather than have to backtrack because letters were already filled in. It also is annoying to me to have to wait after every line for the animation to play before I can do the next line.
40 second ads that you can’t skip.
by nergaahl6 on 2019/05/16 21:39
Really was enjoying this game until after each puzzle there are 40 second ads that you cannot skip & then when you can finally press the “x”, there’s 10 more seconds of simulated gameplay on the ad.

CodyCross
by 77.4 on 2019/05/16 02:05
The game is fun and challenging at times but it sneaks in controversial and sometimes actually subversive thoughts. At first I thought it might be mistakes, but after playing it for several hours, I don’t think so.
Fun and challenging
by jypsyd60 on 2019/05/16 00:26
Enjoy playing-fun and challenging
Constantly messes up
by zandg12 on 2019/05/15 21:37
I love the puzzles, however, it constantly freezes and shuts off. I’m not sure how to fix it.
This game rocks!
by 1953Dick on 2019/05/15 12:51
Awesome entertainment!
Kind of boring
by katmacalaca on 2019/05/15 01:30
I don’t like that as you answer the first questions, it fills in letters for other words. Not very challenging. Best for kids.
Fun game
by hawkinsh on 2019/05/14 23:41
Not too easy, not too hard. Just right to be enjoyable.
Great

This game is interesting and enjoyable. It relaxes me.
Too many ads!
by giokgesxc on 2019/05/13 23:18
Love love love the game but the ads are horrible. I wish there was a way to get rid of them!
Fabulous fabuloso
by hdudshxvc on 2019/05/13 20:31
Best app
Good Game
by dustinc441 on 2019/05/13 18:33
The questions are somewhat challenging but not too hard. You don’t have to be a genius to answer them. I like that it fills in letters in the ones you haven’t answered but I would like a few less filled-in letters.
Could be improved.
by Smartiebob on 2019/05/13 17:18
This app only plays on ipads at the vertical direction. I use the horizontal direction. It could be better if the user had more modes of play. Other than that I enjoy it but the vertical direction is a problem for me.
Excelente y adictivo
by Jamc30_sc on 2019/05/13 16:02
Buen juego. Recomendable
Challenging
by zetasmom on 2019/05/13 09:53
I’m good at word games and finally found one that’s challenging enough to be fun.
Okay to pass time
by Tennna on 2019/05/12 23:11
Kind of fun, but not enough to pay for a subscription. Also, I usually delete games that don’t give me the option to play in landscape mode, especially ones where typing is involved.
Fun game
by debbievdo on 2019/05/12 19:41
This game is a lot of fun. The questions are interesting
Poor ad
by @nbapapii on 2019/05/12 19:18
When I was seeing the ad for this game I thought it was so stupid because they had an unfinished word ending with Yeea So to the developers I'd suggest changing your ad to make it real
Great game, shame about the ads
by SpikeBBC on 2019/05/12 14:54
I love this game but the ads are too frustrating. Especially when it is advertising games I already have! Most apps allow you to pay a one-time fee to remove ads, but these guys want a weekly fee for their Premium Access and that is the only way to remove ads I would have given this game 5-stars otherwise.

Too many ads
by flydog14 on 2019/05/11 22:04
The game is fun and somewhat challenging although some of the clues are a stretch. The worst thing is the annoying ads. Way too many and they play for too long. And you have to “X” out of them twice. I fly often for work so the only time I play is on an airplane when my phone is in airplane mode.

Too many adds

Subscription
by Strudelhouse on 2019/05/09 19:58
I was having fun, until the subscription thing popped up, and immediately followed with ads after declining. Near as I can tell, there’s no other way to turn off ads without giving devs a weekly/monthly/yearly payment. No thanks. Subscription based games aren’t my thing on mobile. Decent game otherwise.
Ads are over placed!!
by Avionik99 on 2019/05/09 17:56
Having to watch an ad every time you finish a game is horrible. Its the same boring ads over and over again. RUINS THE GAME!! Don’t play this!!
Great game!!!
by instatodd13 on 2019/05/09 12:08
It is not to hard but not to easy. In all it’s a great game. The one thing that I would like to change is to have more free letters when you start
Cody is so Cute!
by Kalabr of sheep vale on 2019/05/09 06:52
Love this game! Really makes me think, but not too hard. Helps me spell better, and I learn new things. Kathy B.
Stop forcing us to watch ads
by ginnie54 on 2019/05/09 00:46
I have been playing the game for a while and basically enjoy the game. There is a good mix of easier words and more challenging ones. At first the ads were manageable and I could stop it easily if I did not want to watch the ad. I would gladly watch ads of my choice or if I needed to watch the ad to get something in return, such as some type of bonus. Now the ads pop up after every game and I have to close the app and restart the game. So I have no choice but to stop playing. Thank you.
Too Many Ads!!!!!
by CAD Programmer on 2019/05/08 16:08
Way too many damned ads!!! Many cannot be exited, and several do not obey the phone’s mute setting. This was supposed to be a game, not a mobile ad broadcaster. I’m about ready to delete this obnoxious app.
Love this game
by Kayweb317 on 2019/05/08 15:52

Confused
by Sew-Beautiful on 2019/05/08 05:58
The vertical word has no relationship to the other words. Why even have it?
Great game; challenging
by Civics tired on 2019/05/08 01:08
I love this game it’s challenging but not so hard that it’s not fun. I downloaded it today and I’m on “group” 3 which is I guess is level 3. And each level has 5 puzzles. So the game will last a long time sense there are soooo many levels.
Cody Cross
by Mamadoc8 on 2019/05/06 17:11
Love this game! I don’t mind the ads if there is a way to dismiss them, especially for the games I already own. However, there is one at least that counts down 45 seconds with no way to stop it other than exiting the game and going back in. Both options an irritating waste of time, even more so because I already own that game. There needs to be a way to opt out of ads without having to keep paying more money. Which is why I gave only four stars. Please find a way to fix this!
Frustrated
by MattKopec on 2019/05/05 23:56
Would love to give this a better review, don’t review apps to often, but for me this game is infuriating. It’s not that it’s difficult or that there are to many ads(but there are definitely a lot). For me, I hate the ****ing keyboard. If the game allowed you to use the keyboard that your are used to using, it would be great. Instead the size is different, and as someone who doesn’t look at the keyboard as I type, it’s infuriating that when you would normally typing the letter “S” instead you are typing “D” ect...
45 second unskippable ads
by Starzajo on 2019/05/05 18:28
If you thought thirty second ads that you can’t skip were bad, this game has forty five second ads!
Highly Addictive

by Liberty7512 on 2019/05/01 16:51
But it is extremely irritating to get the same pop up every few seconds and you can’t click out of it. I’m deleting the game
Instead of rating clues
by Benem40 on 2019/05/01 16:45
Love the game! But I have a suggestion. Instead of having players rate clues, how about putting info about the "master word" ... Who invented that thing? When did that happen? Who is this person? What in the world is THAT? I always ignore the clue rating and go on to the next puzzle but I would love to read some trivia about the "master word"! marcusmom
Great game but started freezing
by little_miss97 on 2019/05/01 15:45
This is a great game I usually play it daily but recently it started freezing before I can play. Can you please look into this so it can be fixed and I can start playing again soon! Thank you!

Annoying Ads
by Gandalf5011 on 2019/04/30 17:27
Good game, but there are ads after every single puzzle. Worst, some cannot be skipped, or the close button doesn’t work.
Hooked! What about packs?
by Ele884422 on 2019/04/30 11:59
I love the game but I am only getting packs on the English language. Am I missing something? I usually gets frustrated with word games as they get too hard for me, but the game has the perfect mix of difficulties. Greatly recommended.
Meh
by Sadsurfer300000 on 2019/04/30 08:13
Interesting game but they cheat. They do not always give you the “reward” for watching their ads.
Too many ads
by Candigirl7777 on 2019/04/29 03:50
I understand they have to tShow ads to try to get you to add more games and whatnot, but does there have to be an ad between every round? How about just between levels? I tend to leave games because of the constant barrage of commercials

Clues
by genemanley on 2019/04/28 02:09
The wording of the clues is extremely sophomoric.
Good game, but...
by MusicLoverExtraordinaire on 2019/04/27 23:28
This is a good game that’s fun to play but it’s clear that English is not its creators’ first language. Many of the clues are just plain weird and some of the words and vernacular are not even of the English language. Still, it’s fun to try to figure out even though it can be tremendously frustrating at times. They need to hire an American English speaking editor. Otherwise I would give it five stars. Of course the developer responded by defending the game and asked me which words I was referring to. They would have to put me on the payroll in order to list all of their American English-speaking mistakes! It would take forever there are so many.

by Musicmaniac1970! on 2019/04/27 02:30
I’m not a big gamer, by nature — but, this game is not only fun, but I learn with each level and the fact that it allows me to gain more clues with each level makes this an even greater game, as it is not trying, all the time or at all, to get me to buy junk 😁

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.
Just Kidd in
by can xpix on 2019/04/25 06:45
Have to keep typing several times due to wrong letters hit — keyboard tight! Overall love game .. love how you can skip word if you don’t know the answer! Great words have 2-3 clues even!

If you like it. You can rent it!
by i am a pepsi drinker on 2019/04/25 02:02
Love the game, but after every puzzle you get to watch an annoying commercial, over and over again. If you want to pay so that you don’t have to watch the commercial, you can rent the game at $3.99/month...or much more if you want to rent longer. Even tho you rent it, if you stop paying, you lose all the puzzles, even tho you payed for them. It’s not that much fun to rent it with real money, and not own what you paid. If you pay the $60 for a year, that’s worth 3 times what I would pay to own it. Sorry, I’m deleting the game.
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.

by TeacherDRP on 2019/02/22 02:49
The game is fun, and the challenges vary from almost ridiculously easy to frustratingly hard. The “space cadet” background format is a bit silly for someone like me who is in my seventh decade, but it is tolerable. Some of the clues are a bit inaccurate, if not misleading, and there is no immediate way to report or challenge them. I taught English for over forty years, so I have a bit of insight regarding definitions. All that said, the ads are the most annoying aspect. As a disclaimer, I fully realize that many other games have the same ads with the exact same problem. If a game cannot “hook” you in ten to fifteen seconds, the remaining fifteen aren’t going to either. Most annoying are the ones that you “X” out of only to have a second screen with a wait to hit the second “X.” What are these ad designers thinking? Has it occurred to them that these persistent and duplex ads actually may have the psychologically reverse effect of “I will never download that annoying thing.” Thus, hook me in fifteen seconds or less, or forget it. By the way, my wife and I play the same games on our IPads as a competition which makes for a lot of fun except that she wins too often.
Good Improvement System

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.
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.
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!
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.
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!!!!
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
Good, but becomes stale
by Jakoqowidjebjenxjxksnd on 2018/07/10 04:43
I’ll preface by saying I found this game to be very fun. So fun that I’ve gone through 625 puzzles. It’s an Interesting word game that’s normally not hard, and very forgiving. However every so often I find myself looking up answers. The questions can get very generic. For example, I just had one that was along the lines of “A dish made with ground beef and other ingredients”. As you can tell, it’s hard to narrow it down, so you absolutely have to answer other questions and hope you get a letter pop up. I’m also 125 “groups” in. There’s five puzzles per group, so after 625 puzzles you start to see duplicates from past puzzles. I just play it to pass the time now/
Great Game! Except With Excessive Ads
by kawaiibutts on 2019/04/24 15:38
This game is fun, albeit a few ignorant words that do not properly match due to incorrect culture knowledge. For example Nirvana being a state of mind for Buddhists and large blankets being Ponchos. However, the main problem with this game is the severely excessive ads. Every single time you exit a puzzle, you get an ad. Whether or not you’ve solved it or just keeping it for later, you will receive an ad. Most of them are skippable, but only after around 5-10 seconds. The advertisements themselves are fake as well. The advertisements for App Store games are false. They do not actually include real gameplay for these games at all. So not only do we get an excessive amount of ads, we also get fake ads.
Great Game!
by Marccrand on 2019/02/20 09:15
I really love this game, it's smart and well executed. Do I like the ads? Of course not, but I could buy a subscription and haven't so that's my choice. Some of the clues are questionably vague or strange but it's not going to stop me from playing. But a recent change sincerely has me stumped: the question at the end - was this clue/answer fun or boring? I'm not being snarky when I sincerely say I don't know what that means... Are they asking if the question was hard or easy? Do I want more clues like that? Am I enjoying the game or not? It's a simple question that shouldn't get under my skin but it drives me crazy! I'd like to help the developers but please rephrase the question so I know what you want.
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!
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.
Ambiguity
by Dragging In the Morning on 2019/05/18 03:34
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. I’ve played several repeats just in the past few 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!
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
Loved it before update
by Rabs908 on 2017/12/14 23:40
The app crashed when I was on level 60. I had to uninstall and re-download when this occurred. When I re-downloaded, I was disappointed to find out that I now must pay two tokens for every level. This was not the case before the app crashed. I’m sad to say that I will likely stop playing this game due to the changes that have been made. To update my prior review- Overall, this is a great game. I emailed the developer regarding bugs and crashes that I experienced and they got right back to me. It’s refreshing that the developers of this game are actually willing to help-thank you!
Great fun, with room for improvement.
by Sweeney2391 on 2018/03/13 23:02
I’ve immensely enjoyed the game, the difficulty is a very gradual, almost unnoticeable climb. I made it through the first 35 levels without any mandatory ads. However, when the ads started, they seem to have a tendency to glitch out the game. The last ad that popped up locked the game on a black screen that won’t go away unless you perform a hard reset of the entire phone. Very much so a hassle. Other than patching a few bugs, the only recommendation I could offer would be to add some of the extra categories to free players. I do understand that developers need to make a living, but this game is not endless for Free players.
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!
A Time Waster, but not that great
by Myztikal Tearz on 2018/11/23 01:14
Some of the clues were redundant and most were unimaginative. As the game goes on (I did complete to Roma, which was the last free set), it seems like the developers got bored. Over half of the clues were seeking synonyms.... tedious and boring. Some of the clues were vague that one couldn’t be certain if the answer was a noun (person) or a ‘similar’ verb, as in it was a definition. I agree with another reviewer that sometimes the answer involved several words; this was unclear as well. My final criticism is some answers had several different spellings. It was frustrating when I knew the answer, but it the correct answer was spelled differently. Two stars because I didn’t delete it immediately.
Puzzling stall-outs
by threeoutside on 2018/10/28 17:23
I like this game a lot. There is a wide variety of difficulty levels and subjects. I love looking up new words so this is just right for me. The one problem it’s presenting is that lately it just randomly freezes on me. It happens when I tap on the next puzzle in a series: the screen goes solid purple & nothing I do fixes it. The only thing that works is just turning it off and coming back hours later - in practical terms that’s usually the next day. Is this the makers’ way of telling me to put down the phone & get back to life? Is there something I’m doing wrong?
Lots of fun!
by adhharmony on 2019/04/12 16:00
I don’t usually leave reviews. Many games start out easy and fun but very quickly get to the point where you can’t even finish a level it’s so difficult or you have to spend money. So far this game isn’t like that! There are times you gotta really think hard but it’s not all the time and you don’t get frustrated that they make it impossible to progress. Having a game that’s easy enough to just play and relax yet uses the brain is a breath of fresh air! Keep it simple and fun please!!!
Good game, but...
by MusicLoverExtraordinaire on 2019/04/27 23:28
This is a good game that’s fun to play but it’s clear that English is not its creators’ first language. Many of the clues are just plain weird and some of the words and vernacular are not even of the English language. Still, it’s fun to try to figure out even though it can be tremendously frustrating at times. They need to hire an American English speaking editor. Otherwise I would give it five stars. Of course the developer responded by defending the game and asked me which words I was referring to. They would have to put me on the payroll in order to list all of their American English-speaking mistakes! It would take forever there are so many.
Love it but frustrating
by JJAmericans on 2018/04/16 03:44
I play this game everyday. I enjoy a good crossword puzzle and this one is different from The typical. But five days out of seven I can’t collect my free tokens. I have to wait two or three days to get them. It keeps telling me there is an issue with the server or my WiFi. Yet, I have no issues with other games. It is frustrating because of a week’s time I will lose eight-ten free tokens. Some days it is easy peasy but most it takes the game forever to load and that’s when I know I won’t be able to claim my tokens. I would give this game a five star rating but I just can’t. It isn’t worth that, yet, to me.
Like it, but...
by Pamkl on 2018/12/20 01:52
Since the last update, (about a month ago), the game locks up after the majority of the ads between puzzles, making it even more unstable than it was before! After the ad runs, screen goes black then main iPad screen comes up. CodyCross goes to the background and when you tap it, it has to restart and go thru that process again to play. I put up with it, cause I like the game, but...... You mentioned a few days ago to another user, that you have implemented a fix for this, but I'm not seeing it.
Obscure Words!
by 39nana on 2018/08/13 16:10
I so agree with other reviewers. This is an excellent game, except for the fact that the developers resort to using completely obscure words. What’s the point? Cambistry. Grawlixes. Demesne. Spellcheck doesn’t even want me to write them. I have to resort to looking up the answer because there’s no way I can figure it out on my own. I would give CodyCross five stars if it just stuck to good English words. There are more than 171,000 words in the English language. That should be enough to create a good challenging puzzle. By the way, I’m still playing the game.😘
Really love but frustrated
by Frrrrrrustrated on 2019/01/13 16:57
Really love this app but get frustrated as it seems to stop working often. It will just go to a blue blank screen. Have to leave app and wait for a period of time before going back in. Can’t just go back in immediately; blue screen will still be there. It’s like it needs a cooling off period! The only reason I have not deleted this app is because I really like it. But, must admit that I am getting to the point that if it continues I will look for another app.
Issues with “Membership”screen
by Bio buddy on 2018/04/08 20:52
As mentioned in other reviews the new presence of increased adds is extremely annoying. Also as of recently I can’t even open the app without it stalling well trying to load some kind of membership info page. I cant exit out of it, I can’t select the “not now” option, it’s just stalled. I used to love this game very much but I’m very annoyed right now and may have to look for a new game if this doesn’t resolve. I can live with the adds but I can’t even play the game at this point. I’m very sad, please fix this. UPDATE: game has been working great lately and ads have somewhat decreased for me. Back to loving the game. The weekly events still are pretty glitchy but the main storyline is back to normal.
Love It, But One Thing...
by Nori🤙 on 2019/05/17 01:31
I adore this game. From the cute background it presents to the interesting, topical words that most games don’t use—I love it! I do wish that one thing would be altered though. I feel that, when a word is completed, there are too many extra letters being given out. I really think it ruins the challenge of figuring out the words since eventually some will be fully filled for you. Maybe one or two extra letters being given out would suffice? Thanks for a great game, if you devs see this! Keep up the great work!
Fun but can be tricky.
by PinkPrincess27 on 2018/03/14 21:32
I like the game and the concept. I love that correctly guessed words spread out some letters and help to narrow down the answers. However, sometimes the clues are just weird. “The biter is ___ bit.” The answer is sometimes... “a bristly object used by women” is a hairbrush... just not really intuitive sometimes and I have no choice but to look it up. The ads don’t bother me because they are like that in EVERY free game available so I don’t feel that the developers are doing anything wrong. Otherwise, the game is fun and a different concept to word guessing games.
Limited frustrations
by finalfr0ntier on 2018/04/28 06:17
Fortunately I’ve never experienced the ad invasion that others have. I really love this app, my only beef so far (I’m deep in the sports section) is the incredible amounts of circus trivia?? So many extremely obscure questions related to circus life. It’s ok to sprinkle it in, but it’s overtly overboard. I love how challenging this app can be, I love how clean and functional this game is, I love basically everything about it except for the endless circus questions.. an answer like “slop shoes” the only reference to that I found on the internet was the CodyCross answer. I just don’t get the obsession.
Coins
by dilcia on 2018/01/20 05:22
Love the game, but wish that more coins were given..or coins received throughout the game. Some of the hints can be hard, and you end up using more of the coins than you want. Please give out more coins! What happens when all your coins are gone? How long will it be before you get more?. Please correct this so that players will have more coins to play the game, and not have to wait for replenishment. Thanking you in advance for trying to correct this problem! Margaret
Cody Cross
by Mamadoc8 on 2019/05/06 17:11
Love this game! I don’t mind the ads if there is a way to dismiss them, especially for the games I already own. However, there is one at least that counts down 45 seconds with no way to stop it other than exiting the game and going back in. Both options an irritating waste of time, even more so because I already own that game. There needs to be a way to opt out of ads without having to keep paying more money. Which is why I gave only four stars. Please find a way to fix this!
I wish I could take back my rating of this game
by jegrinstead on 2017/12/20 01:59
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.
Ads
by Wi1189 on 2019/03/15 22:39
This game is really fun. Sometimes challenging, sometimes easy. It’s a great way to waste time that you can pick up and leave whenever. My only complaint is all the ads when you complete a puzzle. There used to not be any ads. Now, I understand why there is and all, but the only way to get rid of them is to purchase a subscription. Well I’m not gonna do that. I find it odd that there isn’t a buy option for the people who don’t want to subscribe for the weekly puzzles or whatever.
Love it but...
by Debbie_K on 2018/07/04 06:35
PLEASE when an answer to a clue is more than one word that should be shown! It’s hard to make an educated guess when you think you are looking for one word and it the answer ends up being two or three! Next to the clue just say (Two words) so we know. Also, I agree the subscription price is way too much. Maybe a one time fee or lower monthly fee could work. I never play games on my phone so this is rare for me and I really enjoy it so thanks!

Bug
by SliminAZ on 2019/05/21 03:11
Hi. I’m in the Department Stores game and there is an ad/ bug driving me insane. It lasts for 45 seconds and there is no way to exit out. Moreover, it isn’t really an ad for anything. It looks like a pinball game, but there’s no name being advertised nor a way to purchase if someone were so inclined. Please fix. Thank you!
Could have loved it!
by Envisages on 2019/05/21 01:31
Great idea, fun to play! But the constant ads, pushing their subscription plans, just feels like every other pay to win game. Would have paid for a real version maybe even a season pass for extra content, but you shouldn’t have to pay every month!
Add a few stars because you have earned them....
by 1stCeye on 2019/05/20 22:47
First! I’m 66 years old and I think the ‘space cadet’ as someone called him is the cutest thing I have seen in quite awhile....a lot of work went into that graphic and I want to just hug him....The little letter elf is a great idea...with only one coin deducted....I have just played the first 10 games, I LOVE IT and I consider myself very lucky to have found a game of this quality and entertainment! The musical notes that accompany typing in letters are TONE PERFECT and a joy to my perfectly pitched ears! The puzzles have a ‘sort’ of definition for each line...when you type in a word, the letters you have found, travel off into other words that also use those letters....great for me, since remembering some words are a battle; Aphasia, ya know. But I enjoy this game all the more..I can describe the word I want...the extra letters give me clues and so this game is actually HELPING ME reconnect lost neurons...it will be easier the next time I want to recall this word....fantastic! I hope and pray that this game remains as good as it is now...it’s 2300 hours and I don’t want to go to bed.....I wanna play some more.....my Docs will be hiding this device next....😀😀😀 I cannot praise this game highly enough! DAYS LATER....answers are funny and you can use YouTube for answers....I went looking for a CONEHEAD ANSWER and it actually said, “if your looking for CodyCross Conehead answer, it’s here,....” I laughed myself silly...you know..it WAITING for players to come looking. I guess us old-timers forget stuff that we watched....I will bet that that question is the first HARD question....LOVE IT....ENJOY IT, everyone....
My new favorite game

Too many
by Bapaintoo on 2019/05/20 21:43
There are too many advertisements. It makes me want to delete app.
Very good game
by Cotryan on 2019/05/20 15:44
This game is very fun and can teach you many words.
Helping the memory
by BuckeyeGirl3 on 2019/05/20 04:18
After having 3 brain surgeries, I needed something that would challenge my brain in remembering words. This does help me to challenge my brain in remembering easy names. I highly recommend this game to help you to remember even the slightest things.
Five stars
by RaeMadison on 2019/05/19 19:39
Best word game! Keeps you thinking. Educational.
Boring
by Sophiesmom09 on 2019/05/19 17:42
The ads that pop up after every round is annoying. The only way to get rid of the ads is if you pay. I’d pay if it were a bit more exciting. You just go through different puzzles. No points, no bonus. I’m officially bored with it.
Ridiculous ads
by Tex862 on 2019/05/19 16:21
Could be a really fun game if you didn’t have to watch an ad after EVERY SINGLE PUZZLE! I understand ads are necessary to keep the game free, but that many is just ridiculous. There’s no need for it and it caused me to delete the game because I got tired of watching ads more than playing the game.
Crashes
by Playwnana on 2019/05/19 15:00
This game is enjoyable but all of a sudden it keeps crashing after completing a puzzle. Very frustrating.

My new favorite game next to the original crosswords.
Ambiguity
by Dragging In the Morning on 2019/05/18 03:34
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. I’ve played several repeats just in the past few 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!
Terrible

Fun but...
by JSRiver on 2019/05/17 12:45
The game is fun with a few exceptions. 1. ADS. There are way too many of them. Haven’t seen anything where you can pay to get rid of them. I hate that sometimes when you x out of an ad, you get a second ad. I can tell you right now, I don’t download games from the ads in other games. 2. The annoying little thing that pops up at the bottom asking to rate this question as boring or fun. They are all boring individually. It’s only as a group they are fun. 3. I agree with another reviewer that some of the definitions are misleading and take you down the wrong path. 4. Nowhere that I have seen does it say that the answers might be two words. That being said, the game is enjoyable except for the above items

Core gameplay fun, mechanics frustrating
by HaltFire on 2019/05/16 23:40
I enjoy the puzzle aspect of the game, and the clues haven't been difficult enough for me to fail yet. My biggest issue is the mechanics the game includes. I would rather type out the full word and submit rather than have to backtrack because letters were already filled in. It also is annoying to me to have to wait after every line for the animation to play before I can do the next line.
40 second ads that you can’t skip.
by nergaahl6 on 2019/05/16 21:39
Really was enjoying this game until after each puzzle there are 40 second ads that you cannot skip & then when you can finally press the “x”, there’s 10 more seconds of simulated gameplay on the ad.

Good Game
by dustinc441 on 2019/05/13 18:33
The questions are somewhat challenging but not too hard. You don’t have to be a genius to answer them. I like that it fills in letters in the ones you haven’t answered but I would like a few less filled-in letters.
Could be improved.
by Smartiebob on 2019/05/13 17:18
This app only plays on ipads at the vertical direction. I use the horizontal direction. It could be better if the user had more modes of play. Other than that I enjoy it but the vertical direction is a problem for me.

Okay to pass time
by Tennna on 2019/05/12 23:11
Kind of fun, but not enough to pay for a subscription. Also, I usually delete games that don’t give me the option to play in landscape mode, especially ones where typing is involved.
Fun game

Poor ad
by @nbapapii on 2019/05/12 19:18
When I was seeing the ad for this game I thought it was so stupid because they had an unfinished word ending with Yeea So to the developers I'd suggest changing your ad to make it real
Great game, shame about the ads
by SpikeBBC on 2019/05/12 14:54
I love this game but the ads are too frustrating. Especially when it is advertising games I already have! Most apps allow you to pay a one-time fee to remove ads, but these guys want a weekly fee for their Premium Access and that is the only way to remove ads I would have given this game 5-stars otherwise.

Too many ads
by flydog14 on 2019/05/11 22:04
The game is fun and somewhat challenging although some of the clues are a stretch. The worst thing is the annoying ads. Way too many and they play for too long. And you have to “X” out of them twice. I fly often for work so the only time I play is on an airplane when my phone is in airplane mode.

Subscription
by Strudelhouse on 2019/05/09 19:58
I was having fun, until the subscription thing popped up, and immediately followed with ads after declining. Near as I can tell, there’s no other way to turn off ads without giving devs a weekly/monthly/yearly payment. No thanks. Subscription based games aren’t my thing on mobile. Decent game otherwise.
Ads are over placed!!
by Avionik99 on 2019/05/09 17:56
Having to watch an ad every time you finish a game is horrible. Its the same boring ads over and over again. RUINS THE GAME!! Don’t play this!!
Great game!!!
by instatodd13 on 2019/05/09 12:08
It is not to hard but not to easy. In all it’s a great game. The one thing that I would like to change is to have more free letters when you start

Stop forcing us to watch ads
by ginnie54 on 2019/05/09 00:46
I have been playing the game for a while and basically enjoy the game. There is a good mix of easier words and more challenging ones. At first the ads were manageable and I could stop it easily if I did not want to watch the ad. I would gladly watch ads of my choice or if I needed to watch the ad to get something in return, such as some type of bonus. Now the ads pop up after every game and I have to close the app and restart the game. So I have no choice but to stop playing. Thank you.
Too Many Ads!!!!!
by CAD Programmer on 2019/05/08 16:08
Way too many damned ads!!! Many cannot be exited, and several do not obey the phone’s mute setting. This was supposed to be a game, not a mobile ad broadcaster. I’m about ready to delete this obnoxious app.

by Civics tired on 2019/05/08 01:08
I love this game it’s challenging but not so hard that it’s not fun. I downloaded it today and I’m on “group” 3 which is I guess is level 3. And each level has 5 puzzles. So the game will last a long time sense there are soooo many levels.

Frustrated
by MattKopec on 2019/05/05 23:56
Would love to give this a better review, don’t review apps to often, but for me this game is infuriating. It’s not that it’s difficult or that there are to many ads(but there are definitely a lot). For me, I hate the ****ing keyboard. If the game allowed you to use the keyboard that your are used to using, it would be great. Instead the size is different, and as someone who doesn’t look at the keyboard as I type, it’s infuriating that when you would normally typing the letter “S” instead you are typing “D” ect...
45 second unskippable ads
by Starzajo on 2019/05/05 18:28
If you thought thirty second ads that you can’t skip were bad, this game has forty five second ads!

Instead of rating clues
by Benem40 on 2019/05/01 16:45
Love the game! But I have a suggestion. Instead of having players rate clues, how about putting info about the "master word" ... Who invented that thing? When did that happen? Who is this person? What in the world is THAT? I always ignore the clue rating and go on to the next puzzle but I would love to read some trivia about the "master word"! marcusmom
Great game but started freezing
by little_miss97 on 2019/05/01 15:45
This is a great game I usually play it daily but recently it started freezing before I can play. Can you please look into this so it can be fixed and I can start playing again soon! Thank you!
Too many ads
by Bella9613 on 2019/04/30 22:24
I love the game but I am tired of having to watch an ad after every single level. It is so annoying😡
Super Fun

Fun but not free

Annoying Ads
by Gandalf5011 on 2019/04/30 17:27
Good game, but there are ads after every single puzzle. Worst, some cannot be skipped, or the close button doesn’t work.
Hooked! What about packs?
by Ele884422 on 2019/04/30 11:59
I love the game but I am only getting packs on the English language. Am I missing something? I usually gets frustrated with word games as they get too hard for me, but the game has the perfect mix of difficulties. Greatly recommended.
Meh
by Sadsurfer300000 on 2019/04/30 08:13
Interesting game but they cheat. They do not always give you the “reward” for watching their ads.
Too many ads
by Candigirl7777 on 2019/04/29 03:50
I understand they have to tShow ads to try to get you to add more games and whatnot, but does there have to be an ad between every round? How about just between levels? I tend to leave games because of the constant barrage of commercials

Clues
by genemanley on 2019/04/28 02:09
The wording of the clues is extremely sophomoric.
Good game, but...
by MusicLoverExtraordinaire on 2019/04/27 23:28
This is a good game that’s fun to play but it’s clear that English is not its creators’ first language. Many of the clues are just plain weird and some of the words and vernacular are not even of the English language. Still, it’s fun to try to figure out even though it can be tremendously frustrating at times. They need to hire an American English speaking editor. Otherwise I would give it five stars. Of course the developer responded by defending the game and asked me which words I was referring to. They would have to put me on the payroll in order to list all of their American English-speaking mistakes! It would take forever there are so many.

by Musicmaniac1970! on 2019/04/27 02:30
I’m not a big gamer, by nature — but, this game is not only fun, but I learn with each level and the fact that it allows me to gain more clues with each level makes this an even greater game, as it is not trying, all the time or at all, to get me to buy junk 😁

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.

If you like it. You can rent it!
by i am a pepsi drinker on 2019/04/25 02:02
Love the game, but after every puzzle you get to watch an annoying commercial, over and over again. If you want to pay so that you don’t have to watch the commercial, you can rent the game at $3.99/month...or much more if you want to rent longer. Even tho you rent it, if you stop paying, you lose all the puzzles, even tho you payed for them. It’s not that much fun to rent it with real money, and not own what you paid. If you pay the $60 for a year, that’s worth 3 times what I would pay to own it. Sorry, I’m deleting the game.
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.

Love/Hate Cody
by TeacherDRP on 2019/02/22 02:49
The game is fun, and the challenges vary from almost ridiculously easy to frustratingly hard. The “space cadet” background format is a bit silly for someone like me who is in my seventh decade, but it is tolerable. Some of the clues are a bit inaccurate, if not misleading, and there is no immediate way to report or challenge them. I taught English for over forty years, so I have a bit of insight regarding definitions. All that said, the ads are the most annoying aspect. As a disclaimer, I fully realize that many other games have the same ads with the exact same problem. If a game cannot “hook” you in ten to fifteen seconds, the remaining fifteen aren’t going to either. Most annoying are the ones that you “X” out of only to have a second screen with a wait to hit the second “X.” What are these ad designers thinking? Has it occurred to them that these persistent and duplex ads actually may have the psychologically reverse effect of “I will never download that annoying thing.” Thus, hook me in fifteen seconds or less, or forget it. By the way, my wife and I play the same games on our IPads as a competition which makes for a lot of fun except that she wins too often.
Good Improvement System
by Digdawgmike on 2019/04/12 02:32
A while back I had tried playing this game, but some of the questions were really easy and the game was rather boring due to the lack of challenge. However I saw an ad for Cody Cross while I was playing another mobile game, so I figured I might as well try it out again. Turns out the developers for this app added in a review after each level. After each level it asks if a certain question out of that level is fun or boring and they use this customer feedback to exterminate low-scoring questions, and it seems that it has made the game far more challenging and interesting! I have enjoyed this game so much that I haven’t put my phone down since I started playing it, four months ago! Karen if you’re reading this please let me have weekend visits with our kids y’all mean the world to me I promise I’ll get off my phone and spend time with them. But due to the addictiveness of this game I had to give it four stars and not five. Yes this game is fun, but the cost of losing your wife and kids is not worth it.
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.
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!
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.
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!!!!
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.

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!!!
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/

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.

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!
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.
Ambiguity
by Dragging In the Morning on 2019/05/18 03:34
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. I’ve played several repeats just in the past few 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 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
Loved it before update
by Rabs908 on 2017/12/14 23:40
The app crashed when I was on level 60. I had to uninstall and re-download when this occurred. When I re-downloaded, I was disappointed to find out that I now must pay two tokens for every level. This was not the case before the app crashed. I’m sad to say that I will likely stop playing this game due to the changes that have been made. To update my prior review- Overall, this is a great game. I emailed the developer regarding bugs and crashes that I experienced and they got right back to me. It’s refreshing that the developers of this game are actually willing to help-thank you!
Great fun, with room for improvement.
by Sweeney2391 on 2018/03/13 23:02
I’ve immensely enjoyed the game, the difficulty is a very gradual, almost unnoticeable climb. I made it through the first 35 levels without any mandatory ads. However, when the ads started, they seem to have a tendency to glitch out the game. The last ad that popped up locked the game on a black screen that won’t go away unless you perform a hard reset of the entire phone. Very much so a hassle. Other than patching a few bugs, the only recommendation I could offer would be to add some of the extra categories to free players. I do understand that developers need to make a living, but this game is not endless for Free players.
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!
A Time Waster, but not that great
by Myztikal Tearz on 2018/11/23 01:14
Some of the clues were redundant and most were unimaginative. As the game goes on (I did complete to Roma, which was the last free set), it seems like the developers got bored. Over half of the clues were seeking synonyms.... tedious and boring. Some of the clues were vague that one couldn’t be certain if the answer was a noun (person) or a ‘similar’ verb, as in it was a definition. I agree with another reviewer that sometimes the answer involved several words; this was unclear as well. My final criticism is some answers had several different spellings. It was frustrating when I knew the answer, but it the correct answer was spelled differently. Two stars because I didn’t delete it immediately.
Puzzling stall-outs
by threeoutside on 2018/10/28 17:23
I like this game a lot. There is a wide variety of difficulty levels and subjects. I love looking up new words so this is just right for me. The one problem it’s presenting is that lately it just randomly freezes on me. It happens when I tap on the next puzzle in a series: the screen goes solid purple & nothing I do fixes it. The only thing that works is just turning it off and coming back hours later - in practical terms that’s usually the next day. Is this the makers’ way of telling me to put down the phone & get back to life? Is there something I’m doing wrong?
Lots of fun!
by adhharmony on 2019/04/12 16:00
I don’t usually leave reviews. Many games start out easy and fun but very quickly get to the point where you can’t even finish a level it’s so difficult or you have to spend money. So far this game isn’t like that! There are times you gotta really think hard but it’s not all the time and you don’t get frustrated that they make it impossible to progress. Having a game that’s easy enough to just play and relax yet uses the brain is a breath of fresh air! Keep it simple and fun please!!!
Good game, but...
by MusicLoverExtraordinaire on 2019/04/27 23:28
This is a good game that’s fun to play but it’s clear that English is not its creators’ first language. Many of the clues are just plain weird and some of the words and vernacular are not even of the English language. Still, it’s fun to try to figure out even though it can be tremendously frustrating at times. They need to hire an American English speaking editor. Otherwise I would give it five stars. Of course the developer responded by defending the game and asked me which words I was referring to. They would have to put me on the payroll in order to list all of their American English-speaking mistakes! It would take forever there are so many.
Love it but frustrating
by JJAmericans on 2018/04/16 03:44
I play this game everyday. I enjoy a good crossword puzzle and this one is different from The typical. But five days out of seven I can’t collect my free tokens. I have to wait two or three days to get them. It keeps telling me there is an issue with the server or my WiFi. Yet, I have no issues with other games. It is frustrating because of a week’s time I will lose eight-ten free tokens. Some days it is easy peasy but most it takes the game forever to load and that’s when I know I won’t be able to claim my tokens. I would give this game a five star rating but I just can’t. It isn’t worth that, yet, to me.
Like it, but...
by Pamkl on 2018/12/20 01:52
Since the last update, (about a month ago), the game locks up after the majority of the ads between puzzles, making it even more unstable than it was before! After the ad runs, screen goes black then main iPad screen comes up. CodyCross goes to the background and when you tap it, it has to restart and go thru that process again to play. I put up with it, cause I like the game, but...... You mentioned a few days ago to another user, that you have implemented a fix for this, but I'm not seeing it.
Obscure Words!
by 39nana on 2018/08/13 16:10
I so agree with other reviewers. This is an excellent game, except for the fact that the developers resort to using completely obscure words. What’s the point? Cambistry. Grawlixes. Demesne. Spellcheck doesn’t even want me to write them. I have to resort to looking up the answer because there’s no way I can figure it out on my own. I would give CodyCross five stars if it just stuck to good English words. There are more than 171,000 words in the English language. That should be enough to create a good challenging puzzle. By the way, I’m still playing the game.😘
Really love but frustrated
by Frrrrrrustrated on 2019/01/13 16:57
Really love this app but get frustrated as it seems to stop working often. It will just go to a blue blank screen. Have to leave app and wait for a period of time before going back in. Can’t just go back in immediately; blue screen will still be there. It’s like it needs a cooling off period! The only reason I have not deleted this app is because I really like it. But, must admit that I am getting to the point that if it continues I will look for another app.
Issues with “Membership”screen
by Bio buddy on 2018/04/08 20:52
As mentioned in other reviews the new presence of increased adds is extremely annoying. Also as of recently I can’t even open the app without it stalling well trying to load some kind of membership info page. I cant exit out of it, I can’t select the “not now” option, it’s just stalled. I used to love this game very much but I’m very annoyed right now and may have to look for a new game if this doesn’t resolve. I can live with the adds but I can’t even play the game at this point. I’m very sad, please fix this. UPDATE: game has been working great lately and ads have somewhat decreased for me. Back to loving the game. The weekly events still are pretty glitchy but the main storyline is back to normal.
Love It, But One Thing...
by Nori🤙 on 2019/05/17 01:31
I adore this game. From the cute background it presents to the interesting, topical words that most games don’t use—I love it! I do wish that one thing would be altered though. I feel that, when a word is completed, there are too many extra letters being given out. I really think it ruins the challenge of figuring out the words since eventually some will be fully filled for you. Maybe one or two extra letters being given out would suffice? Thanks for a great game, if you devs see this! Keep up the great work!
Fun but can be tricky.
by PinkPrincess27 on 2018/03/14 21:32
I like the game and the concept. I love that correctly guessed words spread out some letters and help to narrow down the answers. However, sometimes the clues are just weird. “The biter is ___ bit.” The answer is sometimes... “a bristly object used by women” is a hairbrush... just not really intuitive sometimes and I have no choice but to look it up. The ads don’t bother me because they are like that in EVERY free game available so I don’t feel that the developers are doing anything wrong. Otherwise, the game is fun and a different concept to word guessing games.
Limited frustrations
by finalfr0ntier on 2018/04/28 06:17
Fortunately I’ve never experienced the ad invasion that others have. I really love this app, my only beef so far (I’m deep in the sports section) is the incredible amounts of circus trivia?? So many extremely obscure questions related to circus life. It’s ok to sprinkle it in, but it’s overtly overboard. I love how challenging this app can be, I love how clean and functional this game is, I love basically everything about it except for the endless circus questions.. an answer like “slop shoes” the only reference to that I found on the internet was the CodyCross answer. I just don’t get the obsession.
Coins
by dilcia on 2018/01/20 05:22
Love the game, but wish that more coins were given..or coins received throughout the game. Some of the hints can be hard, and you end up using more of the coins than you want. Please give out more coins! What happens when all your coins are gone? How long will it be before you get more?. Please correct this so that players will have more coins to play the game, and not have to wait for replenishment. Thanking you in advance for trying to correct this problem! Margaret
Cody Cross
by Mamadoc8 on 2019/05/06 17:11
Love this game! I don’t mind the ads if there is a way to dismiss them, especially for the games I already own. However, there is one at least that counts down 45 seconds with no way to stop it other than exiting the game and going back in. Both options an irritating waste of time, even more so because I already own that game. There needs to be a way to opt out of ads without having to keep paying more money. Which is why I gave only four stars. Please find a way to fix this!
I wish I could take back my rating of this game
by jegrinstead on 2017/12/20 01:59
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.
Ads
by Wi1189 on 2019/03/15 22:39
This game is really fun. Sometimes challenging, sometimes easy. It’s a great way to waste time that you can pick up and leave whenever. My only complaint is all the ads when you complete a puzzle. There used to not be any ads. Now, I understand why there is and all, but the only way to get rid of them is to purchase a subscription. Well I’m not gonna do that. I find it odd that there isn’t a buy option for the people who don’t want to subscribe for the weekly puzzles or whatever.
Love it but...
by Debbie_K on 2018/07/04 06:35
PLEASE when an answer to a clue is more than one word that should be shown! It’s hard to make an educated guess when you think you are looking for one word and it the answer ends up being two or three! Next to the clue just say (Two words) so we know. Also, I agree the subscription price is way too much. Maybe a one time fee or lower monthly fee could work. I never play games on my phone so this is rare for me and I really enjoy it so thanks!
