Needs improvement
by Grigsterdan on 2019/07/18 00:10
I’m on level 2948 & I have encountered a thing or 2... Firstly, I’ve never once hit the 1000 coin mark on the bonus wheel and only once hit the 100 coin mark; the rest are minimal game tools. Secondly, when reaching an extra word bonus where an option to watch a video for double the coins (50 vs 25) about half the time, the screen goes blank and I don’t get my 50 coins. The app is updated automatically and my connection is great so it isn’t me. Thirdly, valid words in the English dictionary are rejected too often for my taste. Otherwise, it’s a great app.
Interesting point on the word God
by Wyatterp1 on 2019/07/17 03:10
Good game. However, I find it funny that the word “God” is not accepted but “Gods” is. If the next upgrade doesn’t include “God” I’m deleting the app.
Lost my ad free purchase
by SuperZany on 2019/07/17 02:20
I had recently purchased the ad free version, then the new update came out. I lost my ad free purchase, and the restore does not work. I have emailed for Support but have not heard anything back yet.
Long Time Player
by FibroGirlTN on 2019/07/16 03:40
Update #2: Thank you for thinning the lines that connect the letters. Much easier to stay accurate. The thick lines were simply not working. I’ve seen over the past few days how much Word Crossy listens to their players. You’ve managed to repair the damage from the last update fairly quickly. Appreciate that! My update includes raising my rate of 4 stars to 5 stars. 🤩 Update: Thank you for bringing back our beloved pink piggy bank! It fills up after every level now with 50 fresh coins. 🐷 Hey guys! I’ve been playing Word Crossy for over a year. Great app, but, I’m NOT a fan of the recent update. Sorry to say, the changes set your game backward. First thing that comes to mind is the 3 letter words. They were in EVERY game and gave us an opportunity for double coins. Now, neither of these are an option. No coins from 3 letter words at all and many puzzles SKIP the 3 letter words altogether. That was a big revenue generator. I mean who can’t sit through a 30 second video for double coins? 🙄 Fortunately, the “30 second video for coins” option is still available regarding your piggy bank. Having said all of this, I DO like the option to add words (from the puzzle) that your game does not recognize. Very nice. 🙂 Lastly, your app closes on me several times a DAY. Not monthly, not weekly, but DAILY. Usually the app freezes, then shuts down. Guess what happens when your app shuts down while watching a video to gain double coins? Yea, you don’t get them. 😭 To be honest, I still don’t fully understand the tournaments nor the butterflies. Ok, maybe that one is on me! 😂
This game is annoying
by fhfskv on 2019/07/15 22:47
Every time I try to play it, the game lags then I glitch out of it. It’s still fun though
Figures
by quietdaisy on 2019/07/15 17:43
I really like this game, I just think it’s odd I can never quite win coins on the wheel. Maybe it a trick?
Sad to leave
by CharleyTheCat on 2019/07/15 12:04
Very unhappy with the changes which make it impossible to earn enough coin to play. Once rewarding now stingy. Goodbye
Enjoy with a couple of suggestions
by Expedites 4561 on 2019/07/14 22:43
I love the game and play almost every day. I usually finish and then go back to play previous games. It would be nice to easily access them without having to scroll down over and over. When you tap on the level list to the left of the screen, you see all the levels but cannot pull them up. It would be really great if you could do that, as it would make it much easier to keep playing. The newest update is filled with lovely colors which makes it a beautiful app. With the newest update, the circles that cover each letter are a bit large. I make more mistakes now because they get overlapped and interconnected. At least on a phone screen where you don’t have a lot of room. Maybe make them a little smaller? Overall, though, I really do enjoy playing this game!

Not enough coins

Not enough coins are given for completing quests
To many crashes
by water bum on 2019/07/12 21:00
Really enjoyed the game at first but now it crashes way to much. Very disappointed.
2nd review ...
by I*am*the*yeti on 2019/07/12 11:37
I’ve already written a review week or two ago, but that was before the upgrade. I’ve played over 2000 rounds of this game and criticized the word selection, but now motivated to write a new review because it’s gotten worse. Coming across all kinds of simple words that it doesn’t recognize, which wouldn’t be all that horrible except that your score is adversely affected whenever you enter a word that isn’t in the list. Some of the most bizarre words you’ve never heard of are there ... which you’ll only find through trial and error ... yet some simple words missing. Also, why are you penalized for a 2 letter slip, when no 2 letter words are allowed? Seems like the selection tool has gotten worse as well permitting a slip in letter selection more easily now.
Infuriating
by Dumanyu on 2019/07/11 04:43
Why are so many words not valid. The word Globe is a valid word. The word Globes is not. So many word are invalid just because you add an S. I’m an educated person with a fairly good grasp of the English language and this game is just plain stupid.
So laggy and glitchy, it isn't even funny
by GTR&CORVETTE on 2019/07/11 02:06
This a cool game and all but all it does is glitch, lag, and then kick me out! There's too many ads as well, please fix these. Response: no, it is just all ads for new and different games that are coming out. But it lags and then shows a video for like 5 seconds and then kicks me out of the app.
Game
by Corner123 on 2019/07/10 21:45
The game is fun, but be aware if you buy coins in the app they will charge you double. I also think they are cheap with their coin gifts. It costs 50 coins to get a letter hint, they only gift you 25.
Ads ruin it
by Ejhdenver on 2019/07/10 13:37
Game itself is entertaining enough to pass time but the constant barrage of ads is intolerable. You get a 30 second or so ad after every level (on top of the frequent pitches to buy stuff in game), and many levels can be completed fairly quickly - under a minute. The ads are also pretty shady and try to trick you into clicking and then installing something else. Ironically, had there been fewer ads I likely would have paid the few bucks to buy the game and avoid them but the implementation of the ads is so bad that, instead, I’ll just uninstall the app.

Racist???
by JazzyNoBaby on 2019/07/10 02:09
Just started this game yesterday and WAS on level 39 before I uninstalled... Using the dictionary provided in the game for a Bonus word: Nog- a dark skinned person; nig-nog This definition isn’t even in the dictionary! Are bonus words made up words? If so doesn’t that make it worse! I posted this on social media!
Update Slows Game
by akp12 on 2019/07/10 00:43
This game is usually fun, but the update is clunky. The lines to connect the letters are too thick and cross the wrong letters because the letters are too small. Sometimes you have to trace the correct word twice before it shows up in the puzzle. Please give the option to use the previous version.
The ads are unbearable!
by JTA2 on 2019/07/09 07:39
Simple fun game but the nonstop ads that take you out of the app and that come up constantly in your face make the game not worth it.
Nooooo
by Ckaye baby on 2019/07/09 02:20
Bring back the original...do not like this new version!!
They con you out of money
by Steph12345321 on 2019/07/08 17:25
Please don’t purchase coins with this app when is the tournament for every weekend if your connections not right it’ll show you just in first place by yourself but when it loads you again that’s not thePeople that you’re going to be competing against because after it loaded me into a new one I was in second place so I bought coins so I could be in the first place but after I bought the coins and be the puzzle it’s switch me into a whole Nother group of people and now I was in 13th Pl. and there was no way I’d be able to get to first Place so there was no reason for me to buy the coins it’s a jeep and every day I’m going to write a review until they fix it because they conned me out of moneyWhen is somebody going to get back to me
Update the word list
by dontayT on 2019/07/08 17:08
It’s a great game but what frustrates me the most is the simplest words it don’t recognize. Words like “the days of week” aren’t in their library and it gets way annoying at time, and I give it 3 stars because it’s too many easy words that aren’t on there
New Version is Terrible
by mgellison on 2019/07/08 10:38
Please make the old version available. The new version is awkward to use and not nearly as much fun. The previous version was 5 stars but the new version only 1.
Letters wiggle too much
by Red13243 on 2019/07/08 04:41
This is a very fun game but every time I make a word the jiggling letters are giving me eye strain and a headache. Please get rid of the wiggling, jiggling letters after every word is found.
Tourney points not credited
by Emily Taylor "ET" on 2019/07/08 02:48
I was in a tourney a few days ago that I was winning, then I updated the app and a new tourney started. I was also winning that one, and absolutely should have received coins for at least one game, if not both. Never received credit for either tournament. Also, there are too many ads and the I question the validity of some words that are used and some that are not given credit.
Not a dictionary in sight
by His Servant Too on 2019/07/08 02:44
Once again I find it necessary to write a review based on the same thing as before. On level 4300, I inputted the words “trapper” and “pear” and both of them were denied as wrong and my progress was halted. I do like this app but as my comments reflected prior, there doesn’t seem to be a programmer employed that can link a proper dictionary to the program. I am terminating this app.
Do not believe the tournament clock
by laurelad12 on 2019/07/07 23:11
Enjoy the game, though what is an acceptable word can be a mystery as stated in other reviews. Played the weekend tournament and was in the lead by 50 points or so when the clock said time had expired. I played about 10 more minutes as did the apparent runner up and both are point totals kept growing. I finally stopped, thinking that the totals as of the supposed official end would be final. Not true. When winners were declared i was deemed 2nd and the apparent runner up managed to pile on another 300 points after the game supposedly ended to claim the victory. So if you want to win, keep playing despite what the clock says
Disappointed app user
by Tiepo42391 on 2019/07/07 20:54
I have this game both with and without ads. With ads, it takes forever because there are ads between every board. Without ads, there are still ads, just those from the company itself. The game itself is fine but resorts to odd obscure and perhaps not in use words to keep things a little difficult.
This game helps me its my spelling!
by Sonia’s computer on 2019/07/07 18:53
This game helps me figure out new words and helps me with my spelling when I need it.
Poor update, overall good game
by BeerGut Girl on 2019/07/07 14:42
Mixed results for this update. I’m thrilled that they’ve added more levels, but: 1. They’ve banned three-letter words from some levels, making it more difficult to get combos (unbelievable, outstanding, etc). 2. The interface changed, with larger letters, so additional letters are often accidentally highlighted when trying to make words. 3. Tournaments are limited to 18 levels. People playing at lower levels can get higher scores because they can use more of the smaller words per level, while those of us at the higher levels have multiple points for bonus words removed. 4. Multiple words no longer register as acceptable for the game, with standard spellings. It’s as if they shrank their acceptable dictionary. I use this on mute so I have no comments about the music, but I am happy with the lack of ads. Overall, it’s still a decent word game, but these tweaks make it less fun.
The butterflies tick me off
by BPBomber on 2019/07/07 09:05
There is no rhyme or reason when or why the game clears one or many butterflies when you clear a word. Knock knock to the developer, provide some clear directions

Waste of time

Way to costly in app purchases. Free stuff is mostly useless.
Totally ruined
by Chronique86 on 2019/07/05 15:46
It was bad enough that this pathetic game didn’t even list basic words like “hip,” but now they changed things -for no reason- and you cannot get bonus words that ARE ACTUALLY WORDS. F- will delete app, and I’m over a thousand levels in. LAME.
Only one probkem
by jjanet102 on 2019/07/05 12:47
Really enjoy playing game. One problem I have sometimes when my piggy bank fills up it won’t give me my free coins. Have to clear 3 levels more then I can get it
I used to love this game...
by MikeeB62 on 2019/07/05 01:44
...until the most recent update. Where’s the piggy bank? Why all the changes to the interface? For example, the lines drawn between letters are too fat now and often include letters accidentally. What’s the deal?
Interesting to say the least
by TheBSisreal on 2019/07/04 23:21
I play often, however, I came across a word in level 402 today that left me quite speechless. I didn’t know what the word “moke” meant so I selected the definition option. The word “moke” is a noun defined by Word Crossy as: 1. A donkey 2. A mesh of net, or of anything resembling a net 3. A black person I immediately when to the App Store to see who I could report this to. The app required an update and I updated all apps that needed one. When I went back to the game, “moke” was no longer a word that could be used. Not cool at all. App will be deleted. PS - I have to rate the game in order to post my review. I wouldn’t even give one star if I didn’t have to.
Piggy Bank?
by Reviewer Word Crossy on 2019/07/04 19:50
What happened to the piggy bank on update? Takes much longer to collect coins now. :(
Disappointed
by JCGamer18 on 2019/07/04 13:34
Been playing Word Crossy for a long time - enjoyed the calming graphics & music. The recent update is disappointing & silly. Why do all these games (and websites) go cartoonish. So unsophisticated & juvenile!
Spinner
by Chocolatechomp on 2019/07/03 20:20
The game is rigged when it comes to the spinner. It never lands on 1000 coins to win. Wonder what else is rigged. 🤬😡
First
by maggiemay1414 on 2019/07/03 19:47
I love playing this game with the exception of one area. When your piggy bank is full you can’t collect your coins although it tells you to collect them QUOTE: “Piggy Bank is full!! Open Piggy Bank for free now or get even more by getting multipliers.” When you try to receive the coins, they will not release to your account. Look at the square that shows 50, under the 50 you see a timer showing time ( EX: 08:31:53). You can only receive your coins after the timer has cleared. Something needs to be corrected!!! Is it legal to say you can collect your coins when you can’t??? When this happens to me, I close this game and go to another one to play. The thing is the longer I play, the more coins I spend. I might spend 50 to 150 coins on one puzzle. But by not giving me my coins when the bank is full, I quit playing until I can retrieve them. It could be 11 hrs., 5 hrs., etc. Do the math, they are losing money!!! I know this may be petty, but it’s the principal!!!!!! There’s too many other great games to play that doesn’t cheat you!!
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS GAME
by amullins510 on 2019/07/02 03:34
I’ve completely finished the path of the game and can only play daily puzzles. I hope they add more soon! I’m obsessed! I’ve been playing for almost a year and just got to the end and now my life has no meaning. Lol
The game
by leila leela on 2019/07/01 06:57
Well I understand that people think ‘this game is good or fun but can’t you just go buy a activeity book and do the word search in the book . now I mite seem mean or crazy but I just it’s like that some times I think it’s just a wast of money you can get an activity book for like 1$ at dollar tree or maybe even Walmart but I’ll give you a 5 stars. Good job thanks for putting all your work in to it I appreciate it . I mean I like it my friends like it my cusins love it even my siblings love it 👅💦🍆 👅💦🍑
Constantly crashes
by CptnTerri on 2019/06/30 05:54
I like this game, however, the constant multiple crashes are driving me nuts! I keep hoping for an update to fix the issues. Any suggestions? My OS is current.
Feel like I’m being robbed
by mmjchaney on 2019/06/29 12:43
I like the game, but my one complaint is that sometimes you have to fill up the bank ten or so times with 50 points each before it acknowledges that the bank is full and you can redeem those points for hint credits. And then you only get 50 credits. Seems like if 50 points fills up the bank, then FULL is FULL. Give me my credits when I fill up the bank.
Loving it
by [3]liSSa on 2019/06/28 21:14
Love this game but you are skimpy on the coins. What happened to watching a short 30 second video to collect more coins? Haven’t been able to do that for over a month and it’s frustrating when I get stuck and need a little help. Otherwise I really do love this game.
This game is awesome!
by Avery Saville on 2019/06/28 19:13
This game is so addicting and fun, but it has a lot of ads. I play it all the time on my iPhone and turn airplane mode on. It absolutely the most fun game I have! You should totally get it! It is recommended by me, and probably many others.

Not enough variation
by .Old Man on 2019/06/27 00:07
I originally downloaded this game. Ecause it appeared on Facebook with a man pushing a cart uphill and depending on a correct word or not, would add or remove a rock from his cart which meant continuing upward or falling off cliff. I have played this for several months, many levels, and many flowers and have to see this scenario. Plus also, it is the same thing over and over again. While the game is okay, changes need to be made.

Cheaters
by Ssportone on 2019/06/25 10:54
Cheaters cheaters cheaters. I will delete app if not fixed. Can’t get past a level in the butterfly wheel. Tried several times because the game is set up to not allow me to finish. Also the gift wheel is rigged. Only get the % off buying clues and 100 points nothing. Like you think we wouldn’t notice.
Great game but what happened to new levels
by JRZGRL- on 2019/06/24 02:09
Would have been a 5 star but still waiting for new levels. It’s been weeks now.
Word Crossy - Love & Hate
by TexasTeacher63 on 2019/06/23 14:11
I love this game - and I hate it. The piggy bank is glitchy and actually “allows” you to empty it only about 1 out of every 5 or 6 times - you should be able to do so. It shows “full” but the “free” doesn’t always work!
Great game but I’m done
by Lovely Bi on 2019/06/23 04:23
I believe that you are at the minimum owed more than a free hint when you pay for points, compete in contests and do the daily puzzle. Also if you have an issue, the Help Desk doesn’t respond. I’m going to focus on a better app with a responsive help desk. Sayonara.
Fun game!
by MsMag57 on 2019/06/22 18:50
I really enjoy playing this game. My only complaint is with tournament play. I’ve won coins several times only to have them disappear! I can leave a game with 900 points and return later and only have 300. What gives?

Juvenile exclusions of legitimate words
by Nytrip11 on 2019/06/20 15:53
I’m giving this a three stars because I have played this game for quite some time and achieved more than 2000 levels. However I have contacted the developer many times over their inconsistencies with legitimate words. I think they cater to a British on the defense rather than an American due to the slang that is included. They have some anatomical words, but not others. But they consider the word “god” an offensive word, but not goddess or godless. “Queer” is also considered an offensive word which I find extremely ridiculous, but slang such as “guv” From the British word governor is included. I could go on and on. “Hip” is not a word but “hips” is, “hoe” is not a word but “hoed” is considered legitimate. I think you get the picture. Also, it sometimes doesn’t recognize when you correctly connected a word, so you have to do it multiple times before it responds. Anyways I’m going to find a new game. If the developer had responded to me in any kind of coherent way I might have considered staying a customer. With the plethora of ads this game has, I’m sure I can find another to occupy my time.
Great Game
by PLH777 on 2019/06/20 03:59
I love this game, but I’ve reached the top level. When will more puzzles be added?
Hate the Bonus Wheel
by YPBBB on 2019/06/17 21:40
This game is fun for time passing BUT after maxing out the levels time after time, I always mysteriously land on the same space on their bonus wheel. It feels rigged and just annoys as a result. Just get rid of it since it's clearly a scam.
Addictive but needs work
by Meli333 on 2019/06/17 01:22
Keep running out of levels...and I find it odd that word game sometimes spells words incorrectly on reward banners, etc. 🤔
Fun Game

Highly addictive. Fun. Tournament is a distraction. Need more puzzles.
Too many ads don’t bother
by jojocrs69 on 2019/06/14 07:14
I understand why there are ads but when it’s under 30 seconds to beat a level and there’s ad after every single level so not worth it. Can’t even tell if the game is worth playing yet and ads are too much. I’ll find something else

Fun but frustrating
by neverenuff50 on 2019/06/14 04:48
Game is fun, and small repetitive words do seem a bit too common. Many times the coins I earn are impossible to empty from piggy bank, so it gets really frustrating. Good game, but bugs need work. A new butterfly game appeared for a few days, and the scoring and completion of the game were incomprehensible, as it went really fast. I wound up losing almost a thousand coins I had amassed. Very frustrating, and I still don’t know why it happened. Confusing. The score section keeps telling me I can get more points when the pot is more than half full, but it has NEVER happened in well over a thousand levels. Very disappointing! I earn way more points than I’m ever able to get. Needs a bit of work, but it’s a fun game.
Updates
by JerseyGirl196945 on 2019/06/12 23:37
Enjoy the game a lot but they don’t update near enough. Been waiting over a month for an update for more levels.
Fun, though not perfect
by Chukamanaka on 2019/06/12 05:44
It’s a fun anagram game. I would rate it higher but the makers insist on including plural words when a new word would be less boring. Also I find the lack of advanced words a bit trying. Is NIB that advanced? Anyway, it’s a time killer on jury duty right.
Steals your money
by Trygyfdvyfh on 2019/06/12 00:51
I found this game enjoyable and bought coins, and it seemed I went through them quickly. With my last purchase I decided to not use the coins as often, I was aware of how many coins I had. The next day I logged in and had zero coins, thinking it was a glitch I sent an email, but never got a response. I have deleted the game, so learn from me and don’t buy the coins.

I really enjoy this game and the improvements are working out fine. Thank you for listening. One thing I want to mention is when the bonus comes down to award coins, if I’m in the middle of a word, it messes up the word by doubling letters and getting stuck. Lose my halo :( Thank you!!!
Used to love this game
by word game nerd on 2019/06/09 23:25
Seems like unfair scoring on the weekend tournaments. When this weekend’s tournament was over I was in 2nd place. An hour later, when the coins were dispersed I find that now I’m in 3rd place
Good brain exercise
by Billy Bob Jenkins 😉 on 2019/06/09 07:05
I enjoy the game a lot. I would of gave it a 5 instead of a 4 but every time or 95% of the time you get the bonus spin wheel it finds a way to speed up or slow down to land on the % off coin usage instead of anything else like free coins which is obviously predetermined because of the 10 or so spots on the wheel it always finds a way to land on that one. Also some obvious words aren’t in there and don’t even count towards the extra word bonus. Other than that it’s a great game.
Okay game, too many ads
by WriterGirl87 on 2019/06/08 17:20
Far too many ads, and they are all 30 seconds. Not worth it.
No more free coins?
by Sandi1959 on 2019/06/06 02:49
I deleted the app.. i’ve been an avid player, even came in first last week on last weeks tournament.. i count on the option for free coins, & haven’t seen them in days! My daughter’s & their spouses feel the same, they also deleted the game.. i played this game to keep my mind engaged, not to spend $ since i’m on a very limited income..

Too many ads get hung up and do not free up. You have to wait until the next day for the game to reset itself or you have to delete the game and restart it. This error started in May of 2019
Ad lied
by Alphafire45 on 2019/06/04 20:06
The add presented to get the game was apparently a completely different game. Classic bait and switch.
Definitions
by way2tense on 2019/06/03 14:29
I like this game. I use it to help me improve my vocabulary. An improvement would be to have a better dictionary source. Many definitions are not informative enough.
Decent Word game
by why not again on 2019/06/03 13:31
It is a decent word game. The different puzzles do get frustrating with the rules changing such as whether or not names count. In some cases words that were never counted as acceptable will pop up twenty or fifty word puzzles down the line, making it frustrating for those trying to keep streaks going by following the set standard on word types that the game uses.
Beware
by mindisho on 2019/06/03 12:33
This game cheats you at every opportunity trying to get you to spend money.
Very good game
by ldrue56 on 2019/06/03 09:37
Got attach d to be he game. Very quickly
Annoying ads ALL THE TIME
by Baymont on 2019/06/02 02:52
Like after every 2 games there’s a 30 second ad. Very annoying. Pisses me off.
Easy with some challenges
by Barbara191919 on 2019/05/31 07:26
This is an easy game to play with the daily challenge usually the most difficult to play. I never understood the point system but if you play, remember to collect the daily “50”.
Word Crossy
by Nitche71* on 2019/05/31 02:05
Fun game but hate the tricks built in with the butterflies. You don’t get enough moves to finish and your typically short a move only to get you to try and buy coins. Not good
Connects to Facebook but does not sync game data
by Yolandanelson31 on 2019/05/29 23:05
Besides the way too many ads, I installed this game to my iPad because I have it on my Android phone, paid to get rid of the ads and was going to do the same for my iPad. But when I signed into Facebook in the game it left me on level 2! Then when I go back to my phone it keeps asking me if I want to play the phone version or the cloud version, they are both the same thing! Since my iPad connects but doesn’t take me to the level that is on my phone.
Fun but too many 30 second ads
by MD2308 on 2019/05/29 21:21
Like the game, don’t mind ads but way too many take 30 seconds and some times more
Good Game but poor dictionary!
by GOPSCHEL on 2019/05/29 20:19
It’s a very good pass time. It’s designed and implemented very well. But has a very poor dictionary of words. It rejects several valid words and resets the compliments. Needs improvements.
Fun if you don't mind the ads
by ahimsa9999 on 2019/05/29 17:09
I like it even though I am still not sure how to maximize the score when collecting butterflies. 😁 Also, I have enough flowers to be ranked near 150-160 but it shows me as 1000+ I'd like to know how the rankings are calculated. Do you have to connect to Facebook or something like that?
Fun game but constant ads
by KellyJ1020 on 2019/05/29 14:57
This game is a good way to pass time. I can deal with ads in a game, but this is ridiculous. After each puzzle, which are sometimes very, very short, you have to watch an ad. When you watch and clear that one, yet another pops up. More time is spent watching ads than playing the game. Deleting.
You Must Love Ads
by Sci-doc on 2019/05/29 11:54
With long animations and ads after every level, I spend less than half my time playing the game. I find the games enjoyable, but it’s getting deleted.
Annoying
by Kenkanhaught on 2019/05/29 06:26
App keeps freezing!
Don’t pay for coins! You won’t get them in app!
by Miss those good ole days on 2019/05/29 03:15
Don’t pay for coins, I paid $4.99 and didn’t get a thing
Fun but lots of ads
by TH the mom on 2019/05/28 19:08
It’s fun, but I wish I didn’t have to watch an ad for every. Single. Level I pass!
WAY TOO MANY ADS
by N IGGA NASTY on 2019/05/27 19:21
Ridiculous amount of ads and double ads (I guess that’s how all games are now). Anyways, game is fun - would recommend.
❤️ LOVE THIS GAME ❤️
by CinBoBin on 2019/05/27 02:20
This game won’t make you richer, skinnier, or younger BUT, If you’re like me, you will have something fun to look forward to every day and you just might be happier! The app runs perfectly on my iPad. Never any problems. It’s been almost a year that I have been unashamedly addicted to Word Crossy. Thank you to the company that runs this app.
Was fun but now it’s not
by Mz R&G on 2019/05/27 01:16
I have been playing this game for awhile now and I have noticed that I have redone the same puzzles over and over again -plus I had over 1000 coins and just watched them disappear without even using a coin-well I have built my coins back up I’m on level 1404 -need new puzzles doing the same ones over again
Need to change review from great to so-so
by Ghilayne on 2019/05/26 19:35
Why the change in review? Because I am having difficulty with the game not recognizing when I use a correct word in a puzzle and end up having to PAY for hints to finish. This has happened twice today, most recently with “bier”. Even though I entered it several times the word registered as incorrect until I selected hint until it was filled in. Very disappointed in the product. 5-26-19 update: and again, another word in the puzzle that would not register until I had paid for it to solve— rein. Come on, folks, get it together! You’re now down to a 3-star rating.
Love this game! Would love more mind stones!
by Countrygirlforlife<3 on 2018/05/15 20:17
I absolutely love this game!! It has so many unique additions to it that other word games don’t have— the daily gift, the combo quests (which always make finding words even more fun!), the beautiful backgrounds and the “path” you take to get to the next level, and the daily awakening feature (basically the daily puzzle- and, like other games, if you find a certain amount of words in the right order, you get between 1-3 stars; those stars add up, but once you reach a certain amount, you can collect a “mind stone”) and I get so excited when I know I’m about to collect a mind stone!! They’re unique, associated with an animal, and give you a little inspirational saying, and you never know what they’re going to say so it feels like a surprise. I just love them. So the only thing I would ask- because I love these mind stones so much- is if maybe y’all could please add more? I’m 2 mind stones away from having all of them, but I would love it if there were more added in the next update since right now there are just 16. Although it does take some time to reach 16, as the max number of stars you can receive per day is 3, I’ve been playing for a while now and would love to keep collecting more!
Mysterious Scoring
by BWKWJreader on 2018/01/21 17:45
It’s okay...a way to pass time. Can’t figure out the scoring. Some reviews criticize the “bonus” word because it’s mandatory that you find it before moving on. I don’t think it’s a bonus word, per se. Finding that word does “pay” out in “game coins” that allow you to buy hints. That’s their only purpose or use, as far as I can tell. And, yes, you do have to find it before moving on. The whole game could use some clearly written -out COMPLETE instructions and information on scoring, in case that affects someone’s methods of word guessing. The only thing remotely like directions is masked as the first several stupid-easy “levels” when a pop-up indicates how to run your finger along the letters to make the words, and that for help you can touch two icons: one to mix-up the letters and one to get hints. It doesn’t mention that the hints “cost” those “game coins” mentioned earlier. I think putting in wrong guesses may adversely affect the score. Don’t really know. Sometimes a correct word is worth 1 point and sometimes it seems to be worth 2. No explanation on scores. But that’s okay with me. I don’t pay attention to the score. By the way, I accidentally bumped one of the “buy this offers” and my screen went black. It wouldn’t go on or go back (I waited quite a while). I even left the game and reopened but it still went to a black screen. I had to remove the app and re install it, but it started over with the first level. :-(
Just got better
by Laurence72 on 2019/02/02 11:39
Ok, so I’m currently lvl 586 and haven’t written a review for this game until today. They just added a dictionary button on the screen to define mysterious words that you may have guessed on or maybe use it as a refresher to keep your mind sharp. I’m so glad they added it, it even does words In the pool that are legit but don’t make it on the board. Thank you for not being an ad dependable app. Also, the changing background is awesome after playing so many levels at a time. I have two permanent games on my phone for over two years and this is one of them. Thank you devs for not overthinking it. The only I don’t like is the crappy wheel of fortune thing for a bonus. Can you change it up a little or improve upon it? I suggest being able to win a point a puzzle to be able to spin in more than once, make the speed a bit more realistic on the wheel or pick from cards and get a bonus.
Crashes, lost progress, strange scoring....
by AngelPixel on 2018/03/28 03:39
Game started getting stuck loading at 1% then freezes and crashes. Can't even open it half the time... Repetitive words, made up words, ads after every single level...made the mistake of paying to remove them because at first the game is really fun and addictive. But once you get to higher levels and like ten in a row have the same words repeated just kinda makes it annoying after a while. Anyways there is a lot of potential to be a good game it just needs some fine tuning. The reward system needs work as well. It is very confusing right now, what are the flowers for? The gold rewards seem kind of skimpy as well. Also you lose your bonus streak even if you enter in a legit word and sometimes that legit word gets you the bonus.....I can understand losing your bonus for entering in something that is just gobbledegook but why not extra points for real words? Annnnnd then you can go to the next level and enter in that SAME word from that last puzzle and it accepts it?! So convoluted. Also after the game stopped opening I uninstalled it and reinstalled it to see if that would resolve the issue. I was also logged into Facebook at the time might I add. When I reinstalled the game and logged back in I had lost all my progress....what's the point of logging in when all it does is show me what my friends scores are. Also there doesn't seem to be game center support either... Wish I could get a refund.
Preferred the previous update
by Nice child on 2018/02/04 16:57
This update I do not like. It’s like the reversed in progress because normally updates are better but this one is like they went back like 10 steps. I can say I have noticed less ads. The music was so relaxing and now it’s a little more upbeat. The music is a large portion as to why played the game and now I really don’t care for it. They had spa like music, but like I said it’s a little more upbeat than usual. The app is so extra now. I like cut to the paste and now it does extra stuff when you found a word, they changed the whole layout, as I said I preferred the other layout way better- like the overall layout. At the end of the game when you could easily press X they make you wait for the flower to fully circle around and it is frustrating. Basically I played the game for relaxing purposes and now it doesn’t even do that anymore because they put in special effects which delays time has annoyed me. I don’t care for the path level up hung either. At one point you could just slide and it had relaxing picture of different elements and of course they took that away! I play less now.
Good Start, Needs Improvement
by Emannick on 2018/02/12 19:13
Overall I enjoy the game, but there are a few sore spots that need to be addressed; primarily with the words that it accepts/ does not accept. Depending on the level, the same word will or will not be accepted as an answer. If its acceptable on one level I should be able to input it on another level, even if its only as a bonus word. The issue gets compounded when putting in a word that is not accepted breaks your combo! How can I know ahead of time that the word wont work for that level and avoid losing the points? I frequently guess correctly spelled english words that simply aren’t allowed on that level and then later its a required word, where is the consistency? Why can I put in ‘Mauls’ but not ‘Maul’ in the same level? Just update the word banks and make any words that are real, but not required for the level, as bonus words so it wont break my combo score. Also, it would be nice if we could check what bonus words we’ve already gotten for the level. So like I said, fun but needs some work to be less frustrating
Juvenile exclusions of legitimate words
by Nytrip11 on 2019/06/20 15:53
I’m giving this a three stars because I have played this game for quite some time and achieved more than 2000 levels. However I have contacted the developer many times over their inconsistencies with legitimate words. I think they cater to a British on the defense rather than an American due to the slang that is included. They have some anatomical words, but not others. But they consider the word “god” an offensive word, but not goddess or godless. “Queer” is also considered an offensive word which I find extremely ridiculous, but slang such as “guv” From the British word governor is included. I could go on and on. “Hip” is not a word but “hips” is, “hoe” is not a word but “hoed” is considered legitimate. I think you get the picture. Also, it sometimes doesn’t recognize when you correctly connected a word, so you have to do it multiple times before it responds. Anyways I’m going to find a new game. If the developer had responded to me in any kind of coherent way I might have considered staying a customer. With the plethora of ads this game has, I’m sure I can find another to occupy my time.
Inconsistent
by SilkofGravel on 2018/04/02 10:37
So I agree that it is a way to pass the time. Some major improvements can be made. You get high scores by not guessing incorrect words. The issue with this: sometimes a word that is absolutely, definitely a word will not get credited, so then points are lost...but it’s a real word (e.g. “let”). Sometimes words that are in one puzzle (in the actual puzzle) don’t get credited as a real word in the next puzzle. So while you HAVE to guess, “ire,” in order to complete one puzzle, you need to make sure you avoid it in another puzzle. It’d be one thing if points were deducted just because there isn’t a spot for the word...but when you guess a legit word that isn’t part of the puzzle, it sometimes recognizes that you’ve discovered a word that isn’t used in the actual puzzle, and you still get points for that word with no deduction. Sometimes it will deduct points when I didn’t even get a chance to spell a word. Sometimes my finger hits the wrong starting letter, so I have to remove my finger from that letter. It seems that considers that a wrong spelling. I think that’s too much. And I agree with the bonus word issue. It’s not a “bonus” if it’s required. 🙄
💜 LOVE this game, never had any issues! 💙
by E~Jo on 2019/04/08 01:20
Love this game.. I’ve never downloaded a game to my phone and actually kept it.. I always get tired of them and trash them, then continue my search for that “perfect game” that fits me.. However, I downloaded this game over a year ago and still have and love it! 🥰It’s very easy to maneuver the map, very simple and easy to play, yet there’s enough of a challenge in finding words, that it’s not boring. I also love how, after you find a work, you can touch the word in the puzzle and it will give you the definition for that word! (Because there are several words that I find and think “no way that’s a word!” haha) I’ve never had any issues with losing coins unnecessarily, game crashing, etc! I’ve also won every-single-tournament I’ve played, which are worth 1,000 coins each time you win 1st place! 😍 DOWNLOAD this game; if you enjoy word puzzles, you will NOT be disappointed!!!!
Only play if you enjoy ads
by Dutchie0521 on 2018/06/14 01:32
Downloaded this game yesterday as a way to pass the time. Quit playing after 10 minutes because I spent half of that watching ads. Decided to give it another go today. Soon as I open it I’m promoted to purchase coins in the game for $1.99, I close it. Then I watch the 30 second ad you can’t close. Then I’m prompted for my “daily gift”. I accept it and try to open the level to play. I’m immediately prompted again to purchase coins for $1.99. I close it yet again. Then I’m forced to watch the 30 second ad, AGAIN before I can even play one level. I proceed to play one level which takes around 60 seconds. Then I’m prompted again for the $1.99 purchase. Close it again. Then watch another 30 second ad. Close it out. Try to open the next level to play it, guess whattttttt- prompted again for the $1.99 purchase, and then again for the 30 second ad. Needless to say, the game is being deleted. While I don’t mind doing my fair share of watching ads, as I know that’s how they make an income on these games, this is beyond ridiculous, and you will spend minimum 50-75% of your time closing out ads and purchase prompts.
Fun and relaxing
by ekelks44 on 2018/09/11 05:18
Spinning letters as if in a bingo bowl to find the word and various shorter words within it, tying each letter to another as you work it out, the letters appearing on a rack above the circle, as if it were another real-world board game, getting rewarded with flower petals and bonus coins as you climb your way from 'calm' to 'earth,' colours, landscapes changing as you go, this game is fun and relaxing. If you can't guess the word, hints are available, but just take a breather. You may find what you need after a short break. Use the crossword itself as you fill it in for clues too. I haven't spent money on clues, have just been rewarded them. You can play bonus levels just for that too or to become more familiar with the game. You might have come across a word in a new level already if you've already done it in a bonus round. I did spend money to remove ads, all at once. Not much money and certainly a more relaxing game.
Very fun and relaxing
by terpland on 2018/04/17 18:50
I play this game with my dad all the time and it is very fun. It really does pass the time and it helps your brain. The game is challenging too, finding words. I enjoy challenges. Sometimes, i even learn new words from that game. It’s easy to get coins. (All you do is watch commercials then you’ll gain coins.) there are so many levels, too! Like, 1,700+ I can’t wait to finish them all! I give this 5 stars. And other people out there who don’t like it because you can’t find the words and you rate it just one star. Wow. It is supposed to be challenging. And if you do not like the music, turn it off. That’s why there is a mute button. Don’t get frustrated just because you cannot pass a level and then rate it one star. It is a good game. You guys also delete the app just because of ads. Just wait until it is over, X out, and continue on. I know it is annoying but stop complaining for such dumb reasons.
Wonderful time competing against hubby 💖
by Rancet on 2018/10/24 17:23
I love everything most puzzles! And this game is one of them even when my first language is not English. I LOVE this game! My husband and I compete against each other every night usually playing 3, 5 or 10 games (depending on time available). The ads? They don’t bother me because the game is free! It is very easy for us to wait 5 or 8 seconds to terminate an ad and continue with the next game. I have found that they don’t include some words like God! That is puzzling for me but... oh well! I move on. It is a very entertaining and addictive game specially if you compete against others at the same level. One suggestion: PLEASE release a Spanish version of the game!!!! That way I can KILL my husband every night 🤣😂🤣 and not the other way around like it is now. Great job guys and girls! Love the game!
Terrible customer service
by Aangeldm01 on 2018/05/19 12:24
I played a game that had the same word twice. I had to use over 500 points, that I paid for, to get past the game because of the duplicate word. I wrote an email to the developer letting them know what happened and asked them to credit me the points. What would the harm have been to the developer to credit some points. However that didn’t happen and they didn’t even respond to my email with an apology. I sent several emails. There have been several kinks in the game where I have had to use my points to advance to the next game. I stated in my email that I would continue to rate the game low and guess what they did. They locked me into a 5 star rating where I’m not able to rate any lower than 5 stars through the game. Can you believe that. That is unethical. I’m completely shocked that a company would do something like this. I’m in the process of filing a complaint meanwhile I wonder what is the next shady thing this company does!! Three days in a row I have received the flowers and points for the daily awakening because it freezes up. I’m sure I won’t receive a response from that email either.
The ads are ridiculous!
by nbombzy on 2018/07/15 03:10
I like the game it is great for passing time but a lot of things bug me and almost make me want to stop playing which I’m sure I will at some point soon. First, there is literally an ad after every level and the levels really take one to five minutes for the most part. Thirty second ads every couple of minutes is over kill and ridiculous. Also, if you close out real quick to answer a text or something and go back in seconds later, you have to watch a 5-15 second ad for that. Secondly, you have to have coins to get hints and the amount of coins it cost versus how much they give for completing tasks makes it impossible. Thirdly, my husband and I both play and we have noticed that sometimes you have to put in the same word multiple times to have it accept it and a lot of the levels are the same. I like the concept of the game, but all those things just really frustrate me. I hope they change it soon or I’ll just delete it and find something else.
Fun but has some hang-ups
by Nevsollee on 2018/07/01 11:13
I’ve spent a while playing this game, and while I’ve enjoyed it more than other word games I’ve tried, it still has some issues I think need to be addressed. First, ad glitches. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried to watch an ad to get coins used in the game, only to have it get stuck on a black screen. You end up having to restart the app and you never get those coins. Second, inconsistency in the words accepted. In all puzzles some words that are not part of the crossword are still accepted as “bonus” words. But it seems to vary from puzzle to puzzle which are accepted. For example: one puzzle might accept “TIN” as a bonus word while another might not. It’s frustrating when you get to the bonus combo mode and you lose it on a word that should have been accepted universally. All that said I’m not usually a big fan of word games but this one has grabbed me. I’m still going to play for now, and hope for some fixes!
Enjoyable & challenging with scoring & time issues &
by Dwell! on 2018/07/05 16:46
Word Crossy is a fun & challenging game. There are some problems that reduce enjoyment of the game and rob players of points & time. Like other players have mentioned, the flower/coin point system is vague. Please resolve these problems. I’ really like this game; but, am considering uninstalling it. Here are a few examples of glitches & issues: 1. Stolen coins: Game took 50 coins & gave me nothing but red, swirling sparkles when Lightbulb Tool was selected. No hint was displayed; so, I did not get what I paid for. 2. Full bank won’t empty: Missing green Free-Empty option button: Green free-empty option button does not always appear in full cat bank option box. So, I could not empty bank & coins earned in next game were lost since they couldn’t fit. 3. NEXT game button after cat bank fills up: Sometimes the “NEXT” game button appears in error after the cat bank fills up instead of the special box with the options for free-empty or purchase. So, future coins are lost since full bank couldn’t be emptied. 4. Ads (too many, too long): 30-second advertisement after each game is excessive. No, I won’t buy the ad-free game option with real money because game cannot be trusted with my play money/game coins due to the glitches I described above. 5. Lonnng scoring transitions between games. Slow, flying flowers & coins counting in addition to long ads after each game ... too much time wasted.
Could be a great game
by hialeahnarmi on 2018/08/06 16:50
The ads are unbelievable. You literally get an add after every game. It slows down the game and makes it annoying because you can’t even mute every commercial/advertisement so if you are in public and an ad pops up, you have to lower the volume. My other, and even more annoying complaint, is that you can lose a streak because the game doesn’t accept a legitimate word. You might be able to use a word in 1 round to only find out that the same word is not accepted in another round. So even though you know the word has worked before, it might be rejected later. This in turn breaks your streak if you have been getting multiple words in a row. On top of that, certain words won’t be accepted like countries or cities for most of the games but then later on you have to use the Geneva. Like what the heck?!? Why would I even consider using Geneva if you have kept cities, states, countries, etc in every other instance? This game could have been so much better but as is I can only give it a 2
It’s enjoyable, but has some issues
by Kittycam on 2018/04/13 12:09
First of all, the ads.. never have I played a game where there is an ad that plays after EVERY single level, most of which are completed in just a few seconds. Isn’t this game just an exact copy of that one cookie word game anyways? Last issue I have is that the grammar is far from perfect.. First there are tons of perfectly acceptable English words that if entered are deemed incorrect (for example, “ton” was not considered a word, plus the word needed for the puzzle was “tun”.. really now? Come on game creators), however the biggest issue is some words required to solve the puzzle were not even actual words. The game is fun, don’t get me wrong, but the ads are far too frequent and therefore I find myself not wanting to play nearly as much as I would if they were less. I understand that for a game to be free there needs to be ads, but this one isn’t good enough to pay to have them removed, or to literally spend as much time watching ads as I do playing the actual game.
Fun Game
by Honey1126 on 2018/03/08 08:29
It’s a fun game, but frustrating at times, because 1) I feel like they use words that are so obscure they almost seem made up. It does force me to look up these words and increase my vocabulary, but at the same time frustrating if I’m trying to solve and don’t know what that final word is. 2) every time I try to use the daily spin (whether it’s on my iPhone or iPad) an ad will pop up advertising a coin sale and when I “X” out of that, the wheel is now frozen and I can’t get my daily spin in. Which brings me to 3) This “50% off” on the prize wheel is dumb and when I can manage to click on the wheel before the ad pops up (very rare by the way), it seems that 90% of the time it will land on this, even though it clearly should have stopped before that or it was going fast enough that it should have passed it. Because of these issues, I’m hesitant to buy any coins. If issues #2 & 3 aren’t fixed soon, I will be deleting the app and finding something less frustrating.
Coping Skills
by Lizzie0914 on 2018/09/09 23:45
I really feel like this game calms you down and it’s really relaxing especially when you have anxiety. Many viewers cope with this game and made it really far into the levels, that’s because they feel calm and collected. They wouldn’t even notice that they have gone to like level 45 to 4,080. That’s because it’s beautiful backgrounds and music is very soothing and relaxing, my family loves it. My Gram loves it and got me hooked. Personally I think this is true because I just started today about 5 minutes ago and I’m already on level 30. You may have other opinions but I’m sure many people feel this way. This is for the people who have anxiety and many panic attacks. If you have bad days just play this awesome game. I really love it and so should you.
Skillful Crossy!

I absolutely love this game and would have given it a 5 all day long. However, the game rewards you to hook it up to your Facebook page which I never do but, against my better judgement I did and as soon as I did, all of my inventory was taken, except 5 pieces each. I had at least 100 each maybe more! I also had an abundance of coins. Again against my better judgment I bought many different piggy bank packages which, I never do and I mean never! This is actually the first game I have ever purchased things for that shows you how much I liked the game! After this happened, I sent the developers an email and they have yet to respond to me. I’m not sure how much longer I’m going to keep this game because I’m not happy that the developers did think my complaint was important enough to respond to. Good Luck to all you gamers and my best advice to you is DO NOT HOOK YOUR GAME UP TO FACEBOOK BECAUSE SOMEONE MIGHT STEAL ALL YOUR HARD EARNED INVENTORY!!!
Random????
by Burtonious on 2019/05/20 19:33
I will start off by saying that I plan on removing this game from my phone unless someone will explain the logic behind the decisions of the the game at higher levels. I understand that the game must increase in difficulty, but when the same decision produces different outcomes, one starts to consider that trying to understand is senseless. This was an interesting and challenging game until to get to the point where it seems there is no logic or strategy behind the randomness. In the butterfly challenges sometimes a word will remove one butterfly and in another attempt it will only remove one. Of course failed attempts leaves you with two options quit and return the next day when you have more attempts or pay for extra attempts. It also appears that you have to play the challenge so many times that it will finally allow to to move past the level. This returns me to my previous statement where the designers force you to pay for extra attempts. This was a fun game, now it’s just an exercise in futility.
Not the worst game
by Mooshiedog on 2018/01/27 17:36
It’s ok. The amount of ads is ridiculous, sometimes having to watch a 30 second ad after playing one round that might take ten seconds to complete. I ended up just turning off Wifi so n9 ads can load. Scoring is inconsistent to say the least. You get flowers for correctly guessing words, but the flowers don’t seem to get you anything. If you want to buy more coins for clues one of the options is to buy either a “half hour” or “hour”, but they don’t tell you half hour or hour of what. You get extra points for guessing words that aren’t in the puzzle, but that just rewards you for being wrong. There are no bonus points for finishing within a certain amount of time or solving the puzzle without guessing incorrect words. That makes no sense at all. And you could get ten points for solving a fifteen word puzzle but 25 points for solving a six word puzzle. Makes no sense at all and don’t expect any explanation of the rules to be found anywhere.
Ads run longer than the levels, and after every level!
by Jedi365 on 2018/08/10 00:41
I have never downloaded and deleted an app so fast in my life! I’m not unfamiliar with free apps having ads, but this is literally a 30 second ad every time you get through a level regardless of how long it takes you (once you get past level 10 or so, which doesn’t take too long). Then you have to close 3 different windows. And heaven forbid you don’t accidentally leave the app, because then you have to watch the ads again before you resume play, even if you completely watched them before! Not to mention the game play they advertised this game with looked totally different (it depicted making a new picture from other pictures—for example a snail and a match and the ad made a “lollipop” with the match stick and snail shell) which is nothing like this junky game that downloaded! Don’t waste your time downloading and playing this game, unless you want to watch the same 3 app commercials repeatedly for longer than you spend playing!
Enjoy with a couple of suggestions
by Expedites 4561 on 2019/07/14 22:43
I love the game and play almost every day. I usually finish and then go back to play previous games. It would be nice to easily access them without having to scroll down over and over. When you tap on the level list to the left of the screen, you see all the levels but cannot pull them up. It would be really great if you could do that, as it would make it much easier to keep playing. The newest update is filled with lovely colors which makes it a beautiful app. With the newest update, the circles that cover each letter are a bit large. I make more mistakes now because they get overlapped and interconnected. At least on a phone screen where you don’t have a lot of room. Maybe make them a little smaller? Overall, though, I really do enjoy playing this game!
Words that are not words
by Bbg012 on 2018/01/25 19:16
I’m not sure if the “words” are chosen at random or what, but once you get to the higher levels, you have to try to guess words that aren’t even actually words. So may be a prefix or suffix or just something totally made up! Also, the scoring is really ambiguous. No clear cut scoring rules. Also, you sometimes get coins for bonus words, but you mostly get “flowers” which do absolutely nothing for you. A hint costs FIFTY coins which is INSANELY high when you can’t guess a word that isn’t a word. I’ve never left a review for a game before but this game is frustrating the heck out of me! It’s addicting and fun, but there needs to be some things the developers address. I’ve already purchased the full app to get rid of the ads because they were way too excessive. I’m sure nothing will change, but I had to address these things that have really been annoying me.
You have to play to pay
by LeeEllen123 on 2019/05/12 19:16
I have used this game for a long time. Since it was new. And through the years they have sadly gotten so greedy. Recently they started tournaments. I noticed right away that when I started to play then others would start. I soon realized I was playing against a bot. In the last tournament I took screen shots of this and the fact the top two winners had the same name and the same picture. I just stopped playing it altogether after that as if you really want to play the game you need to buy coins. I can’t play without buying coins, but they use such bizarre words like words that are used in medicine, etc so if you want to move on you have to buy your way out. So until they give written instructions and come forward with the fact during tournaments your playing against the house basically and they are driving up the scores in order to get people to buy coins then I sadly can’t play it anymore. And I truly did enjoy most aspects of this game.
On Wi-Fi
by Nyala10 on 2018/05/25 19:56
So I'm at home on Wi-Fi but when I want to get more lives by watching a video it says "connect to the internet and try again". Right... I'm connected ok? Then I have similar issues that everyone else seems to have: 1) no rules or explanations of rewards 2) funky non-English words 3) ads between every level 4) what the heck are the flowers for? 5) why do we have to pay to open the piggy bank when we've earned the gold coins and they're ours? I'm not paying a cent on this game and I'd advise others not to either. 6) words are accepted on one level but not another 7) have you noticed all the reviews are January through early April. What happened to the rest of the year? The reviews are from years past it seems but after march it scrolls back to January. I think the developer has lost interest and doesn't pay attention to our reviews to fix the issues.
Fun, but also frustrating
by heyjessibrown on 2018/05/17 19:22
When I’m in the groove, I love this game. Unfortunately, it’s designed to interrupt that groove constantly and there are some annoying elements of the game. For one, you have to wait forever while your combo quest progress sliders move at a glacial pace. Then, the cat bank thing pops up every few rounds, with an extra attempt to solicit in-app purchases tacked on once in a while, which you have to close before moving on. And, while this is a small thing to some, the constant typos make it look like whoever’s designing this game straight-up doesn’t care. Plus, whatever dictionary they’re using confounds me. I’ve broken streaks on words that I know are real words, and been stumped by “words” that are actually prefixes or informal abbreviations. And yet, I keep playing, so there’s obviously *something* good happening here.
It's alright
by K.C.87 on 2018/01/13 03:23
Super fun way to pass time.. the ads are annoying but for $ you can get rid of them. One bad point aside from it not taking words that aren't on the crossword as bonus words like it should. When you get so many bonus words the meter fills up so you get coins, BUT I don't know if it's because you don't get enough bonus words in a row or what but my meter fills after so many words and stays full. It doesn't give coins or reset like it's supposed to I've deleted and re installed the app too many times to count to try to fix it. But once I reach level like 32 I don't get coins for bonus words which is a total ripoff. So meh good way to pass time but I wouldn't spend any actual money on it
Piggy bank full but can’t redeem/empty
by JayGee too on 2018/07/24 04:27
I’m at level 493. I just filled the piggybank again but it won’t let me retrieve the coins AND it won’t add any more. So I’m playing and completing puzzles and not getting coins. There is what appears to be a timer at the bottom of the button used to retrieve the piggybank coins. My timer says 18:23:19. Does that mean I can’t get my coins for 18 hours plus. If so I might as well quit playing until tomorrow. I’ve had some of the other problems mentioned as well. I saw somewhere that once you got 10,000 flowers there was some reward. I have over 12,000 and still waiting to get whatever reward. I too have noticed that valid words do not score. I know that 2 letter words don’t count but I’ve had many 4-5 letter words that don’t score anything. I did discover that if one taps the “Bonus” to the left of the flower at the top it will reveal the bonus words found and the number of bonus words available. That leads me to believe that not all dictionary words are valid as bonus words. One just gets so many per puzzle I guess. I too would like to see a more complete description of the point system and also what makes a combo a great combo versus an outstanding combo etc. Lastly, I’ve discovered many slang words are valid and I didn’t expect that.
I Love this game But
by MommaHaneline on 2019/05/06 02:07
So I will start out by saying I love this game and I’m totally addicted. I’m 500 levels in so I’ll give you my full opinion. There is an ad after every round which was annoying at first when the rounds are really easy, but they get a little harder and take a little longer to complete so the adds stopped bothering me pretty quickly. I don’t understand the scoring on the Butterfly card rounds... which is a bit annoying because I think I could complete the harder levels easier if I understood how you can get more than one butterfly at a time instead of it just seeming random. Some of the words are a little out there but I love the dictionary feature. So as soon as I guess a word that I don’t know what it means I can click the Aa button and it tells you the definition. I like that because word games are supposed to help you expand your vocabulary. The biggest thing that still irritates me about the game though is that when I saw the add for the game while playing another game, the word puzzle in the add is nowhere to be found in the actual game. Which is kind of messed up on advertising’s side. Like come on.... Overall... I am addicted and I do like the game.
Needs Some Fixing
by Yeah, You Know on 2018/03/23 01:38
After almost every round you will have to watch an ad, if not after every round. This is very annoying, and makes the game pale in comparison to similar games with less obtrusive advertising. Also, the bonus word should not be mandatory. It’s called a bonus for a reason. I also put ton in as a word, but apparently that’s not the correct spelling, despite the fact it is. In fact, there are many times you will spell a word but they want it spelled in some European way. Finally, there have been ones when I’ve put in word after word that just acts as a bonus instead of actually being in the puzzle. Which is just annoying. Actually, I have one more complaint which is the finger tracking on the game is abysmal. So many times I have traced over certain letters but they won’t connect. I’ve had the same problem on my tablet and my father’s phone.
Argh
by Fetid pair of donkey kidneys on 2018/02/27 19:48
I have so many frustrations with this game and most are about words. 1. Words that aren’t words. I know there are words that I don’t know yet, and that’s okay, but when you look up a bizarre word and can’t find a definition, it’s crap. 2. Bonus words. I’m not talking about the stand along word you get coins for. When you get a word that’s not on the board, they count it as a bonus word. Whether they count terms or not varies widely and is hugely inconsistent. Being punished for getting a legitimate word that was in a previous board is immensely frustrating. 3. Word choice. I get that it’s meant to get harder, and that’s fine, but the words they choose sometimes are awful in context. There will be rounds when everything you put in is counted off as bonus and you can’t get a darn thing on the board because they skipped over so many good words to focus on bizarre crap. I’ve had rounds with 20 bonus words when I’ve had to look up words because they chose a poor selection. I have a good vocabulary, so when I’ve tried everything normal and am on to being punished for trying “nary”, it’s crap. I’m on level 640-ish and it’s utterly ridiculous. All of this points back to money. In the game setup it’s obvious they’re trying to set it up in such a way that you feel confident and then just use a hint on that one word.
New Update Confusion
by Acandies on 2018/09/20 03:10
For some reason my hidden talent in life is making words out of any assortment of letters so I love games like this. Before the update I could fly through levels but if I got stuck on one word (usually some old usage or British pronunciation word as some have mentioned before) I could just spend some of the massive coin total that I have accrued over the course of 900+ levels and figure it out after one or two letters. Now with the latest update there is literally zero usage for the coins! Makes no sense. Now you have to use one of there 3 hint features which you can only slowly collect via a daily bonus by logging on once a day. I get that’s how you guys make your money and stay relevant but as someone who will never spend money on such a simple game it is quite irksome. Miss the good ol days of Text Twist.
Incomplete
by FightingTheDark on 2018/02/19 06:29
As someone who enjoys words and vocabulary games, I was excited to get this. However the dictionary this game uses is both incomplete and inconsistent. On some levels the crossword will have a word (eg. pope) AND the plural of the same word (eg. popes). However on other levels it does not recognize plurals of words, not even as bonus words. And since the scoring system gives you bonuses for consecutive crosswords and bonus words found, it’s quite frustrating to have a high consecutive word count and then make the plural of a word and have it break the chain because the dictionary doesn’t recognize it. (Eg. bite/bites). Also. In one level it recognized the word “not”. But not the word “ton”. It DID however recognize the word “tun” which actually is a real word. But come on. Ruin my word streak for “ton”? These are real examples from within the first 20 levels of the game. After which I deleted the app.
Rip off
by ianmagary on 2018/01/07 19:26
I paid for no advertising and the latest update of this app is ridden with stupid pop up adds for in app purchases, social media connection and coins and other silly unneeded and very annoying pop ups. I now have to "X" out of multiple layers of BS, self serving ads the developer wants to throw out there to get to the actual puzzle. Their dictionary acumen is horrible too. Over 50% of the time when you put a legitimate, correctly spelled word out there in hopes it's one of the ones for the puzzle. The app doesn't even recognize, nor give you credit for finding a word that fit the letters, yet was not in the puzzle. Needless to say, I'm done with the greedy, self serving app developers. There's much better games out there and ways to spend my time. I will seek refund from the developer first, then Apple if no resolution. I emailed the developer 2 weeks ago and it's been crickets ever since. Do yourself a favor and find any other app than this one!
Uses old English?
by Haunted Spit on 2018/07/07 17:07
I enjoy this game but spend half of my game time in disbelief, searching for a dictionary definition of words I have never heard of. Many words used in this game are from old English or British use (?). Such as “deb”, “loo”, “pooh”, etc. And many I have never heard or seen used in a sentence, such as “rewin”. Also, I notice the first words I find are pretty common, such as “sour” but it won’t be used in the puzzle. Instead it is collected in a “gift box” as a bonus word. If you collect enough of these, you are awarded coins. It seems the developer could’ve put these words in the puzzle but failed to do so and the gift box words are a fix to that problem. As other reviews have mentioned, many times the words used in the puzzle are singular and also plural forms of a word which becomes stale and not very challenging (e.g. “her” and “hers”).
It could be better
by Olivoial on 2018/07/28 23:02
All in all I’ve enjoyed the game. It froze on me so I’m going to delete it because the screen has faded to black the past 2 times I’ve opened the app. I’ve played for the past few weeks and it’s been great to pass time. I even got the family involved a few times which was nice. I like the daily rewards etc... and the whole set up. My dislikes: sometimes it doesn’t take the word the first time you enter it to later find out it’s the same word. There are tons of ads, that aren’t versatile - just the same ads. I do like that you can win coins by watching them. My last dislike is because the words sometimes don’t make sense, or they’re really similar like: hike & hikes. Minor corrects could make this game great.
Good but not without flaws.
by Nameless schlub on 2018/11/10 15:24
Pretty fun game. Got a few weeks of enjoyment out of it for only 3 bucks to remove ads (a necessity if you want to play it for any length of time in my opinion). Minus one star for not including some very common words in their word bank and breaking your word combo for entering them. The game has been out too long to have not corrected some of these. And minus another star for the daily “puzzles”. It’s more of a daily guessing game and it tracks how successful you were at the guessing for the rest of the month. Seems odd to make people feel like a failure and keep track of it in a game that seems themed toward making one feel peaceful and relaxed. If neither of those things would bother you, you’ll probably really enjoy the game. I will keep looking for something a little more well executed.
Fun but frustrating
by neverenuff50 on 2019/06/14 04:48
Game is fun, and small repetitive words do seem a bit too common. Many times the coins I earn are impossible to empty from piggy bank, so it gets really frustrating. Good game, but bugs need work. A new butterfly game appeared for a few days, and the scoring and completion of the game were incomprehensible, as it went really fast. I wound up losing almost a thousand coins I had amassed. Very frustrating, and I still don’t know why it happened. Confusing. The score section keeps telling me I can get more points when the pot is more than half full, but it has NEVER happened in well over a thousand levels. Very disappointing! I earn way more points than I’m ever able to get. Needs a bit of work, but it’s a fun game.
Video ads
by Mam-maw CAB on 2018/07/21 02:04
This morning I have watched 5 videos and have recited 0 pats. Some videos are freezing seconds in and will not clearsame thing is occurring. I had 3 friends playing they have all dropped out because of the videos after each win and watching videos with no points and freezing after selecting a word. You have to leave the game for 10-15 minutes to get the screen unfrozen. This all started after revision. When I switch from the daily game to the main game it goes to black causing me to loss by 50% off incentives. This is getting old. After watching videos screen goes black. Cannot get it back. Help please 7/20 again when I playa video for points the screen goes black and it takes 15-30 minutes to reset. Please fix this,I love playing but I don’t have all day.
Effective sleep aid
by Kelsey509 on 2019/05/14 05:36
Like other reviewers, I too have no clue how the scoring works in this game. I also do not understand the rules of the “bonus” rounds with the butterflies and I choose to skip them because I just find them frustrating, I almost feel like that’s their point. If you fail a round you have to start all over unless you use coins to continue. I am also consistently befuddled by the words this game will and will not let you play. “Pooh” is determined to be a valid word, however the game will not allow me to play “hip” or “god”. That all said, I find this game to be an effective way to wind down before bed as it always puts me to sleep. I have been playing it fairly regularly for a few weeks now despite its many flaws and the number of ads I’m forced to sit through.
Only good to pass a little time.
by CJ.D. on 2018/05/24 19:30
Tap the watch an Add for extra coins coin box and nothing happens other than the box just goes away. Complete the Daily Word Challenge to receive 25 coins and the Tap to receive screen freezes (while music continues to play) so you can not receive your coins. The only way to continue to play is to go Home and restart App thus losing the 25 DWC coins. Many times words to be found are not spelled properly or are actually not real words at all. A lot of trial & error guessing and waste of coins. Most times you enter a word and it will not register-UNTIL, at games end and after you spend coins to provide a letter. Game coins won go into a piggy bank that you can not retrieve but once every 12 hours then, you are only given a total of 50 coins of all the coins you have won-UNLESS, you pay to receive all the coins.
Doesn’t support across devices; ads don’t respect muting
by NannylouG on 2018/04/24 12:20
The game itself is ok. Nothing addictive but it passes the time. When my iPad needs charged and I play on my laptop or iPhone, the status level doesn’t transfer. UGH! The ads are very annoying because: 1) they are after EVERY level, 2) they are redundant (the same ads over and over) 3) they often play music even when the game has been muted (don’t play when you’re supposed to be doing something else!!!) I realize the intent is to get me to pay to remove ads but I actually like to see other games on occasion. Plus I won’t pay if the game isn’t cross compatible or addicting. I expect in a week I will be bored and delete it. UPDATE: Needs some instructions and guidelines regarding: 1) Scoring. How does that work? 2) I still haven’t figured out what the coins and flowers are for. 3) I can’t tell from the icons what each “help” item is. When I clicked on one to find out, I consumed it. 4) There are a LOT of valid words in the standard scrabble dictionary which are not recognized by the puzzle or bonus. It’s ok if they’re not in the puzzle but they should give bonus. 5) it seems to go through instability crashes occasionally.
Could be so much better
by BobRobApex on 2018/04/15 17:10
Update: I like some of the improvements to ways to get coins and the new power ups but still missing very vanilla words at each level (kills the streaks you're on) and the multi level (and longer) ads are really annoying. Dropping to 2 stars. It's fun to find the words in the puzzles but supremely frustrating that it doesn't recognize relatively common words. One puzzle I got credit for ERA and EAR but not ARE. Other times HUES is a word but HUED isn't. Needs to have lots more recognized words and be consistent from puzzle to puzzle. I also think you should get a bonus if you get all the words without making any mistakes. Guess I can start adding words here that the game should count as good...level 1032-micron; 1078-shire, hires, heirs; another level a couple before didn’t take are or ear but did take era; 1083-togs, tugs, gush, hugs, guts; 1434-gavel, ravel
Mostly fun and engaging, but maddeningly inconsistent.
by rwt1138 on 2018/06/23 18:45
There are a lot of fun and challenging puzzles, and for the most part I find it an entertaining challenge, but the developers really need to tighten up their dictionary. Words that are required to complete some puzzles won’t even register as words in others. Since the game awards bonus points for streaks, it can be extremely annoying to have one broken because you entered a word that was required in the previous puzzle. In addition, it should recognize simple words. The puzzle I’m currently on has rejected dot, ton, not, duo, don, all simple words and all of which are required in other puzzles. Meanwhile, it ignores some obscure words but has puzzles requiring lenis, secondary, and other extremely obscure words. Fix the dictionary issue and make it consistent, and this would get more stars from me.
Fun game to play when you’re bored, but has some issues.
by hburns11 on 2018/01/13 16:29
Fun game to play when you’re bored, but has some issues. The object is to get as many words as you can in a row, to get the most points, but if you miss one, you won’t be able to get as many points. The problem is that it won’t accept many of the words that I enter, that are definitely real words. If it’s not on the crossword, then it should be a bonus word, but some are entirely rejected so that your correct words streak is ended and you’ll get significantly less points for the level. For instance, it didn’t accept “mom,” but it did accept “moms.” Other words it didn’t always accept include: rut, rot, rat, tar, hot, hat, and many others. These should not count against you. Also the ads are really annoying, and their ‘special offers’ for coins and to be ad-free are crazily priced.

Needs improvement
by Grigsterdan on 2019/07/18 00:10
I’m on level 2948 & I have encountered a thing or 2... Firstly, I’ve never once hit the 1000 coin mark on the bonus wheel and only once hit the 100 coin mark; the rest are minimal game tools. Secondly, when reaching an extra word bonus where an option to watch a video for double the coins (50 vs 25) about half the time, the screen goes blank and I don’t get my 50 coins. The app is updated automatically and my connection is great so it isn’t me. Thirdly, valid words in the English dictionary are rejected too often for my taste. Otherwise, it’s a great app.
Interesting point on the word God
by Wyatterp1 on 2019/07/17 03:10
Good game. However, I find it funny that the word “God” is not accepted but “Gods” is. If the next upgrade doesn’t include “God” I’m deleting the app.
Lost my ad free purchase
by SuperZany on 2019/07/17 02:20
I had recently purchased the ad free version, then the new update came out. I lost my ad free purchase, and the restore does not work. I have emailed for Support but have not heard anything back yet.
Long Time Player
by FibroGirlTN on 2019/07/16 03:40
Update #2: Thank you for thinning the lines that connect the letters. Much easier to stay accurate. The thick lines were simply not working. I’ve seen over the past few days how much Word Crossy listens to their players. You’ve managed to repair the damage from the last update fairly quickly. Appreciate that! My update includes raising my rate of 4 stars to 5 stars. 🤩 Update: Thank you for bringing back our beloved pink piggy bank! It fills up after every level now with 50 fresh coins. 🐷 Hey guys! I’ve been playing Word Crossy for over a year. Great app, but, I’m NOT a fan of the recent update. Sorry to say, the changes set your game backward. First thing that comes to mind is the 3 letter words. They were in EVERY game and gave us an opportunity for double coins. Now, neither of these are an option. No coins from 3 letter words at all and many puzzles SKIP the 3 letter words altogether. That was a big revenue generator. I mean who can’t sit through a 30 second video for double coins? 🙄 Fortunately, the “30 second video for coins” option is still available regarding your piggy bank. Having said all of this, I DO like the option to add words (from the puzzle) that your game does not recognize. Very nice. 🙂 Lastly, your app closes on me several times a DAY. Not monthly, not weekly, but DAILY. Usually the app freezes, then shuts down. Guess what happens when your app shuts down while watching a video to gain double coins? Yea, you don’t get them. 😭 To be honest, I still don’t fully understand the tournaments nor the butterflies. Ok, maybe that one is on me! 😂
This game is annoying
by fhfskv on 2019/07/15 22:47
Every time I try to play it, the game lags then I glitch out of it. It’s still fun though
Figures
by quietdaisy on 2019/07/15 17:43
I really like this game, I just think it’s odd I can never quite win coins on the wheel. Maybe it a trick?
Sad to leave
by CharleyTheCat on 2019/07/15 12:04
Very unhappy with the changes which make it impossible to earn enough coin to play. Once rewarding now stingy. Goodbye
Enjoy with a couple of suggestions
by Expedites 4561 on 2019/07/14 22:43
I love the game and play almost every day. I usually finish and then go back to play previous games. It would be nice to easily access them without having to scroll down over and over. When you tap on the level list to the left of the screen, you see all the levels but cannot pull them up. It would be really great if you could do that, as it would make it much easier to keep playing. The newest update is filled with lovely colors which makes it a beautiful app. With the newest update, the circles that cover each letter are a bit large. I make more mistakes now because they get overlapped and interconnected. At least on a phone screen where you don’t have a lot of room. Maybe make them a little smaller? Overall, though, I really do enjoy playing this game!

Really enjoyed the game at first but now it crashes way to much. Very disappointed.
2nd review ...
by I*am*the*yeti on 2019/07/12 11:37
I’ve already written a review week or two ago, but that was before the upgrade. I’ve played over 2000 rounds of this game and criticized the word selection, but now motivated to write a new review because it’s gotten worse. Coming across all kinds of simple words that it doesn’t recognize, which wouldn’t be all that horrible except that your score is adversely affected whenever you enter a word that isn’t in the list. Some of the most bizarre words you’ve never heard of are there ... which you’ll only find through trial and error ... yet some simple words missing. Also, why are you penalized for a 2 letter slip, when no 2 letter words are allowed? Seems like the selection tool has gotten worse as well permitting a slip in letter selection more easily now.
Infuriating
by Dumanyu on 2019/07/11 04:43
Why are so many words not valid. The word Globe is a valid word. The word Globes is not. So many word are invalid just because you add an S. I’m an educated person with a fairly good grasp of the English language and this game is just plain stupid.
So laggy and glitchy, it isn't even funny
by GTR&CORVETTE on 2019/07/11 02:06
This a cool game and all but all it does is glitch, lag, and then kick me out! There's too many ads as well, please fix these. Response: no, it is just all ads for new and different games that are coming out. But it lags and then shows a video for like 5 seconds and then kicks me out of the app.
Game
by Corner123 on 2019/07/10 21:45
The game is fun, but be aware if you buy coins in the app they will charge you double. I also think they are cheap with their coin gifts. It costs 50 coins to get a letter hint, they only gift you 25.
Ads ruin it
by Ejhdenver on 2019/07/10 13:37
Game itself is entertaining enough to pass time but the constant barrage of ads is intolerable. You get a 30 second or so ad after every level (on top of the frequent pitches to buy stuff in game), and many levels can be completed fairly quickly - under a minute. The ads are also pretty shady and try to trick you into clicking and then installing something else. Ironically, had there been fewer ads I likely would have paid the few bucks to buy the game and avoid them but the implementation of the ads is so bad that, instead, I’ll just uninstall the app.

by JazzyNoBaby on 2019/07/10 02:09
Just started this game yesterday and WAS on level 39 before I uninstalled... Using the dictionary provided in the game for a Bonus word: Nog- a dark skinned person; nig-nog This definition isn’t even in the dictionary! Are bonus words made up words? If so doesn’t that make it worse! I posted this on social media!
Update Slows Game
by akp12 on 2019/07/10 00:43
This game is usually fun, but the update is clunky. The lines to connect the letters are too thick and cross the wrong letters because the letters are too small. Sometimes you have to trace the correct word twice before it shows up in the puzzle. Please give the option to use the previous version.
The ads are unbearable!
by JTA2 on 2019/07/09 07:39
Simple fun game but the nonstop ads that take you out of the app and that come up constantly in your face make the game not worth it.
Nooooo
by Ckaye baby on 2019/07/09 02:20
Bring back the original...do not like this new version!!
They con you out of money
by Steph12345321 on 2019/07/08 17:25
Please don’t purchase coins with this app when is the tournament for every weekend if your connections not right it’ll show you just in first place by yourself but when it loads you again that’s not thePeople that you’re going to be competing against because after it loaded me into a new one I was in second place so I bought coins so I could be in the first place but after I bought the coins and be the puzzle it’s switch me into a whole Nother group of people and now I was in 13th Pl. and there was no way I’d be able to get to first Place so there was no reason for me to buy the coins it’s a jeep and every day I’m going to write a review until they fix it because they conned me out of moneyWhen is somebody going to get back to me
Update the word list
by dontayT on 2019/07/08 17:08
It’s a great game but what frustrates me the most is the simplest words it don’t recognize. Words like “the days of week” aren’t in their library and it gets way annoying at time, and I give it 3 stars because it’s too many easy words that aren’t on there
New Version is Terrible
by mgellison on 2019/07/08 10:38
Please make the old version available. The new version is awkward to use and not nearly as much fun. The previous version was 5 stars but the new version only 1.
Letters wiggle too much
by Red13243 on 2019/07/08 04:41
This is a very fun game but every time I make a word the jiggling letters are giving me eye strain and a headache. Please get rid of the wiggling, jiggling letters after every word is found.
Tourney points not credited
by Emily Taylor "ET" on 2019/07/08 02:48
I was in a tourney a few days ago that I was winning, then I updated the app and a new tourney started. I was also winning that one, and absolutely should have received coins for at least one game, if not both. Never received credit for either tournament. Also, there are too many ads and the I question the validity of some words that are used and some that are not given credit.
Not a dictionary in sight
by His Servant Too on 2019/07/08 02:44
Once again I find it necessary to write a review based on the same thing as before. On level 4300, I inputted the words “trapper” and “pear” and both of them were denied as wrong and my progress was halted. I do like this app but as my comments reflected prior, there doesn’t seem to be a programmer employed that can link a proper dictionary to the program. I am terminating this app.
Do not believe the tournament clock
by laurelad12 on 2019/07/07 23:11
Enjoy the game, though what is an acceptable word can be a mystery as stated in other reviews. Played the weekend tournament and was in the lead by 50 points or so when the clock said time had expired. I played about 10 more minutes as did the apparent runner up and both are point totals kept growing. I finally stopped, thinking that the totals as of the supposed official end would be final. Not true. When winners were declared i was deemed 2nd and the apparent runner up managed to pile on another 300 points after the game supposedly ended to claim the victory. So if you want to win, keep playing despite what the clock says
Disappointed app user
by Tiepo42391 on 2019/07/07 20:54
I have this game both with and without ads. With ads, it takes forever because there are ads between every board. Without ads, there are still ads, just those from the company itself. The game itself is fine but resorts to odd obscure and perhaps not in use words to keep things a little difficult.
This game helps me its my spelling!
by Sonia’s computer on 2019/07/07 18:53
This game helps me figure out new words and helps me with my spelling when I need it.
Poor update, overall good game
by BeerGut Girl on 2019/07/07 14:42
Mixed results for this update. I’m thrilled that they’ve added more levels, but: 1. They’ve banned three-letter words from some levels, making it more difficult to get combos (unbelievable, outstanding, etc). 2. The interface changed, with larger letters, so additional letters are often accidentally highlighted when trying to make words. 3. Tournaments are limited to 18 levels. People playing at lower levels can get higher scores because they can use more of the smaller words per level, while those of us at the higher levels have multiple points for bonus words removed. 4. Multiple words no longer register as acceptable for the game, with standard spellings. It’s as if they shrank their acceptable dictionary. I use this on mute so I have no comments about the music, but I am happy with the lack of ads. Overall, it’s still a decent word game, but these tweaks make it less fun.
The butterflies tick me off
by BPBomber on 2019/07/07 09:05
There is no rhyme or reason when or why the game clears one or many butterflies when you clear a word. Knock knock to the developer, provide some clear directions

Totally ruined
by Chronique86 on 2019/07/05 15:46
It was bad enough that this pathetic game didn’t even list basic words like “hip,” but now they changed things -for no reason- and you cannot get bonus words that ARE ACTUALLY WORDS. F- will delete app, and I’m over a thousand levels in. LAME.
Only one probkem
by jjanet102 on 2019/07/05 12:47
Really enjoy playing game. One problem I have sometimes when my piggy bank fills up it won’t give me my free coins. Have to clear 3 levels more then I can get it
I used to love this game...
by MikeeB62 on 2019/07/05 01:44
...until the most recent update. Where’s the piggy bank? Why all the changes to the interface? For example, the lines drawn between letters are too fat now and often include letters accidentally. What’s the deal?
Interesting to say the least
by TheBSisreal on 2019/07/04 23:21
I play often, however, I came across a word in level 402 today that left me quite speechless. I didn’t know what the word “moke” meant so I selected the definition option. The word “moke” is a noun defined by Word Crossy as: 1. A donkey 2. A mesh of net, or of anything resembling a net 3. A black person I immediately when to the App Store to see who I could report this to. The app required an update and I updated all apps that needed one. When I went back to the game, “moke” was no longer a word that could be used. Not cool at all. App will be deleted. PS - I have to rate the game in order to post my review. I wouldn’t even give one star if I didn’t have to.
Piggy Bank?
by Reviewer Word Crossy on 2019/07/04 19:50
What happened to the piggy bank on update? Takes much longer to collect coins now. :(
Disappointed
by JCGamer18 on 2019/07/04 13:34
Been playing Word Crossy for a long time - enjoyed the calming graphics & music. The recent update is disappointing & silly. Why do all these games (and websites) go cartoonish. So unsophisticated & juvenile!
Spinner
by Chocolatechomp on 2019/07/03 20:20
The game is rigged when it comes to the spinner. It never lands on 1000 coins to win. Wonder what else is rigged. 🤬😡
First
by maggiemay1414 on 2019/07/03 19:47
I love playing this game with the exception of one area. When your piggy bank is full you can’t collect your coins although it tells you to collect them QUOTE: “Piggy Bank is full!! Open Piggy Bank for free now or get even more by getting multipliers.” When you try to receive the coins, they will not release to your account. Look at the square that shows 50, under the 50 you see a timer showing time ( EX: 08:31:53). You can only receive your coins after the timer has cleared. Something needs to be corrected!!! Is it legal to say you can collect your coins when you can’t??? When this happens to me, I close this game and go to another one to play. The thing is the longer I play, the more coins I spend. I might spend 50 to 150 coins on one puzzle. But by not giving me my coins when the bank is full, I quit playing until I can retrieve them. It could be 11 hrs., 5 hrs., etc. Do the math, they are losing money!!! I know this may be petty, but it’s the principal!!!!!! There’s too many other great games to play that doesn’t cheat you!!
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS GAME
by amullins510 on 2019/07/02 03:34
I’ve completely finished the path of the game and can only play daily puzzles. I hope they add more soon! I’m obsessed! I’ve been playing for almost a year and just got to the end and now my life has no meaning. Lol
The game
by leila leela on 2019/07/01 06:57
Well I understand that people think ‘this game is good or fun but can’t you just go buy a activeity book and do the word search in the book . now I mite seem mean or crazy but I just it’s like that some times I think it’s just a wast of money you can get an activity book for like 1$ at dollar tree or maybe even Walmart but I’ll give you a 5 stars. Good job thanks for putting all your work in to it I appreciate it . I mean I like it my friends like it my cusins love it even my siblings love it 👅💦🍆 👅💦🍑
Constantly crashes
by CptnTerri on 2019/06/30 05:54
I like this game, however, the constant multiple crashes are driving me nuts! I keep hoping for an update to fix the issues. Any suggestions? My OS is current.
Feel like I’m being robbed
by mmjchaney on 2019/06/29 12:43
I like the game, but my one complaint is that sometimes you have to fill up the bank ten or so times with 50 points each before it acknowledges that the bank is full and you can redeem those points for hint credits. And then you only get 50 credits. Seems like if 50 points fills up the bank, then FULL is FULL. Give me my credits when I fill up the bank.
Loving it
by [3]liSSa on 2019/06/28 21:14
Love this game but you are skimpy on the coins. What happened to watching a short 30 second video to collect more coins? Haven’t been able to do that for over a month and it’s frustrating when I get stuck and need a little help. Otherwise I really do love this game.
This game is awesome!
by Avery Saville on 2019/06/28 19:13
This game is so addicting and fun, but it has a lot of ads. I play it all the time on my iPhone and turn airplane mode on. It absolutely the most fun game I have! You should totally get it! It is recommended by me, and probably many others.

Not enough variation
by .Old Man on 2019/06/27 00:07
I originally downloaded this game. Ecause it appeared on Facebook with a man pushing a cart uphill and depending on a correct word or not, would add or remove a rock from his cart which meant continuing upward or falling off cliff. I have played this for several months, many levels, and many flowers and have to see this scenario. Plus also, it is the same thing over and over again. While the game is okay, changes need to be made.

Cheaters
by Ssportone on 2019/06/25 10:54
Cheaters cheaters cheaters. I will delete app if not fixed. Can’t get past a level in the butterfly wheel. Tried several times because the game is set up to not allow me to finish. Also the gift wheel is rigged. Only get the % off buying clues and 100 points nothing. Like you think we wouldn’t notice.
Great game but what happened to new levels
by JRZGRL- on 2019/06/24 02:09
Would have been a 5 star but still waiting for new levels. It’s been weeks now.
Word Crossy - Love & Hate
by TexasTeacher63 on 2019/06/23 14:11
I love this game - and I hate it. The piggy bank is glitchy and actually “allows” you to empty it only about 1 out of every 5 or 6 times - you should be able to do so. It shows “full” but the “free” doesn’t always work!
Great game but I’m done
by Lovely Bi on 2019/06/23 04:23
I believe that you are at the minimum owed more than a free hint when you pay for points, compete in contests and do the daily puzzle. Also if you have an issue, the Help Desk doesn’t respond. I’m going to focus on a better app with a responsive help desk. Sayonara.
Fun game!
by MsMag57 on 2019/06/22 18:50
I really enjoy playing this game. My only complaint is with tournament play. I’ve won coins several times only to have them disappear! I can leave a game with 900 points and return later and only have 300. What gives?

Juvenile exclusions of legitimate words
by Nytrip11 on 2019/06/20 15:53
I’m giving this a three stars because I have played this game for quite some time and achieved more than 2000 levels. However I have contacted the developer many times over their inconsistencies with legitimate words. I think they cater to a British on the defense rather than an American due to the slang that is included. They have some anatomical words, but not others. But they consider the word “god” an offensive word, but not goddess or godless. “Queer” is also considered an offensive word which I find extremely ridiculous, but slang such as “guv” From the British word governor is included. I could go on and on. “Hip” is not a word but “hips” is, “hoe” is not a word but “hoed” is considered legitimate. I think you get the picture. Also, it sometimes doesn’t recognize when you correctly connected a word, so you have to do it multiple times before it responds. Anyways I’m going to find a new game. If the developer had responded to me in any kind of coherent way I might have considered staying a customer. With the plethora of ads this game has, I’m sure I can find another to occupy my time.
Great Game
by PLH777 on 2019/06/20 03:59

Hate the Bonus Wheel
by YPBBB on 2019/06/17 21:40
This game is fun for time passing BUT after maxing out the levels time after time, I always mysteriously land on the same space on their bonus wheel. It feels rigged and just annoys as a result. Just get rid of it since it's clearly a scam.
Addictive but needs work
by Meli333 on 2019/06/17 01:22

Too many ads don’t bother
by jojocrs69 on 2019/06/14 07:14
I understand why there are ads but when it’s under 30 seconds to beat a level and there’s ad after every single level so not worth it. Can’t even tell if the game is worth playing yet and ads are too much. I’ll find something else

Fun but frustrating
by neverenuff50 on 2019/06/14 04:48
Game is fun, and small repetitive words do seem a bit too common. Many times the coins I earn are impossible to empty from piggy bank, so it gets really frustrating. Good game, but bugs need work. A new butterfly game appeared for a few days, and the scoring and completion of the game were incomprehensible, as it went really fast. I wound up losing almost a thousand coins I had amassed. Very frustrating, and I still don’t know why it happened. Confusing. The score section keeps telling me I can get more points when the pot is more than half full, but it has NEVER happened in well over a thousand levels. Very disappointing! I earn way more points than I’m ever able to get. Needs a bit of work, but it’s a fun game.
Updates
by JerseyGirl196945 on 2019/06/12 23:37
Enjoy the game a lot but they don’t update near enough. Been waiting over a month for an update for more levels.
Fun, though not perfect
by Chukamanaka on 2019/06/12 05:44
It’s a fun anagram game. I would rate it higher but the makers insist on including plural words when a new word would be less boring. Also I find the lack of advanced words a bit trying. Is NIB that advanced? Anyway, it’s a time killer on jury duty right.
Steals your money
by Trygyfdvyfh on 2019/06/12 00:51
I found this game enjoyable and bought coins, and it seemed I went through them quickly. With my last purchase I decided to not use the coins as often, I was aware of how many coins I had. The next day I logged in and had zero coins, thinking it was a glitch I sent an email, but never got a response. I have deleted the game, so learn from me and don’t buy the coins.
Fun game
by Meree897 on 2019/06/10 21:47
I really enjoy this game and the improvements are working out fine. Thank you for listening. One thing I want to mention is when the bonus comes down to award coins, if I’m in the middle of a word, it messes up the word by doubling letters and getting stuck. Lose my halo :( Thank you!!!
Used to love this game
by word game nerd on 2019/06/09 23:25
Seems like unfair scoring on the weekend tournaments. When this weekend’s tournament was over I was in 2nd place. An hour later, when the coins were dispersed I find that now I’m in 3rd place
Good brain exercise
by Billy Bob Jenkins 😉 on 2019/06/09 07:05
I enjoy the game a lot. I would of gave it a 5 instead of a 4 but every time or 95% of the time you get the bonus spin wheel it finds a way to speed up or slow down to land on the % off coin usage instead of anything else like free coins which is obviously predetermined because of the 10 or so spots on the wheel it always finds a way to land on that one. Also some obvious words aren’t in there and don’t even count towards the extra word bonus. Other than that it’s a great game.
Okay game, too many ads
by WriterGirl87 on 2019/06/08 17:20
Far too many ads, and they are all 30 seconds. Not worth it.
No more free coins?

I deleted the app.. i’ve been an avid player, even came in first last week on last weeks tournament.. i count on the option for free coins, & haven’t seen them in days! My daughter’s & their spouses feel the same, they also deleted the game.. i played this game to keep my mind engaged, not to spend $ since i’m on a very limited income..

Too many ads get hung up and do not free up. You have to wait until the next day for the game to reset itself or you have to delete the game and restart it. This error started in May of 2019
Ad lied
by Alphafire45 on 2019/06/04 20:06
The add presented to get the game was apparently a completely different game. Classic bait and switch.

I like this game. I use it to help me improve my vocabulary. An improvement would be to have a better dictionary source. Many definitions are not informative enough.
Decent Word game
by why not again on 2019/06/03 13:31
It is a decent word game. The different puzzles do get frustrating with the rules changing such as whether or not names count. In some cases words that were never counted as acceptable will pop up twenty or fifty word puzzles down the line, making it frustrating for those trying to keep streaks going by following the set standard on word types that the game uses.
Beware

This game cheats you at every opportunity trying to get you to spend money.
Very good game

Got attach d to be he game. Very quickly
Annoying ads ALL THE TIME
by Baymont on 2019/06/02 02:52
Like after every 2 games there’s a 30 second ad. Very annoying. Pisses me off.
Easy with some challenges
by Barbara191919 on 2019/05/31 07:26
This is an easy game to play with the daily challenge usually the most difficult to play. I never understood the point system but if you play, remember to collect the daily “50”.
Word Crossy
by Nitche71* on 2019/05/31 02:05
Fun game but hate the tricks built in with the butterflies. You don’t get enough moves to finish and your typically short a move only to get you to try and buy coins. Not good
Connects to Facebook but does not sync game data
by Yolandanelson31 on 2019/05/29 23:05
Besides the way too many ads, I installed this game to my iPad because I have it on my Android phone, paid to get rid of the ads and was going to do the same for my iPad. But when I signed into Facebook in the game it left me on level 2! Then when I go back to my phone it keeps asking me if I want to play the phone version or the cloud version, they are both the same thing! Since my iPad connects but doesn’t take me to the level that is on my phone.
Fun but too many 30 second ads
by MD2308 on 2019/05/29 21:21
Like the game, don’t mind ads but way too many take 30 seconds and some times more
Good Game but poor dictionary!
by GOPSCHEL on 2019/05/29 20:19
It’s a very good pass time. It’s designed and implemented very well. But has a very poor dictionary of words. It rejects several valid words and resets the compliments. Needs improvements.
Fun if you don't mind the ads
by ahimsa9999 on 2019/05/29 17:09
I like it even though I am still not sure how to maximize the score when collecting butterflies. 😁 Also, I have enough flowers to be ranked near 150-160 but it shows me as 1000+ I'd like to know how the rankings are calculated. Do you have to connect to Facebook or something like that?
Fun game but constant ads
by KellyJ1020 on 2019/05/29 14:57
This game is a good way to pass time. I can deal with ads in a game, but this is ridiculous. After each puzzle, which are sometimes very, very short, you have to watch an ad. When you watch and clear that one, yet another pops up. More time is spent watching ads than playing the game. Deleting.
You Must Love Ads
by Sci-doc on 2019/05/29 11:54
With long animations and ads after every level, I spend less than half my time playing the game. I find the games enjoyable, but it’s getting deleted.
Annoying

Don’t pay for coins! You won’t get them in app!

Fun but lots of ads
by TH the mom on 2019/05/28 19:08
It’s fun, but I wish I didn’t have to watch an ad for every. Single. Level I pass!
WAY TOO MANY ADS
by N IGGA NASTY on 2019/05/27 19:21
Ridiculous amount of ads and double ads (I guess that’s how all games are now). Anyways, game is fun - would recommend.
❤️ LOVE THIS GAME ❤️
by CinBoBin on 2019/05/27 02:20
This game won’t make you richer, skinnier, or younger BUT, If you’re like me, you will have something fun to look forward to every day and you just might be happier! The app runs perfectly on my iPad. Never any problems. It’s been almost a year that I have been unashamedly addicted to Word Crossy. Thank you to the company that runs this app.
Was fun but now it’s not
by Mz R&G on 2019/05/27 01:16
I have been playing this game for awhile now and I have noticed that I have redone the same puzzles over and over again -plus I had over 1000 coins and just watched them disappear without even using a coin-well I have built my coins back up I’m on level 1404 -need new puzzles doing the same ones over again
Need to change review from great to so-so
by Ghilayne on 2019/05/26 19:35
Why the change in review? Because I am having difficulty with the game not recognizing when I use a correct word in a puzzle and end up having to PAY for hints to finish. This has happened twice today, most recently with “bier”. Even though I entered it several times the word registered as incorrect until I selected hint until it was filled in. Very disappointed in the product. 5-26-19 update: and again, another word in the puzzle that would not register until I had paid for it to solve— rein. Come on, folks, get it together! You’re now down to a 3-star rating.
Love this game! Would love more mind stones!
by Countrygirlforlife<3 on 2018/05/15 20:17
I absolutely love this game!! It has so many unique additions to it that other word games don’t have— the daily gift, the combo quests (which always make finding words even more fun!), the beautiful backgrounds and the “path” you take to get to the next level, and the daily awakening feature (basically the daily puzzle- and, like other games, if you find a certain amount of words in the right order, you get between 1-3 stars; those stars add up, but once you reach a certain amount, you can collect a “mind stone”) and I get so excited when I know I’m about to collect a mind stone!! They’re unique, associated with an animal, and give you a little inspirational saying, and you never know what they’re going to say so it feels like a surprise. I just love them. So the only thing I would ask- because I love these mind stones so much- is if maybe y’all could please add more? I’m 2 mind stones away from having all of them, but I would love it if there were more added in the next update since right now there are just 16. Although it does take some time to reach 16, as the max number of stars you can receive per day is 3, I’ve been playing for a while now and would love to keep collecting more!
Mysterious Scoring
by BWKWJreader on 2018/01/21 17:45
It’s okay...a way to pass time. Can’t figure out the scoring. Some reviews criticize the “bonus” word because it’s mandatory that you find it before moving on. I don’t think it’s a bonus word, per se. Finding that word does “pay” out in “game coins” that allow you to buy hints. That’s their only purpose or use, as far as I can tell. And, yes, you do have to find it before moving on. The whole game could use some clearly written -out COMPLETE instructions and information on scoring, in case that affects someone’s methods of word guessing. The only thing remotely like directions is masked as the first several stupid-easy “levels” when a pop-up indicates how to run your finger along the letters to make the words, and that for help you can touch two icons: one to mix-up the letters and one to get hints. It doesn’t mention that the hints “cost” those “game coins” mentioned earlier. I think putting in wrong guesses may adversely affect the score. Don’t really know. Sometimes a correct word is worth 1 point and sometimes it seems to be worth 2. No explanation on scores. But that’s okay with me. I don’t pay attention to the score. By the way, I accidentally bumped one of the “buy this offers” and my screen went black. It wouldn’t go on or go back (I waited quite a while). I even left the game and reopened but it still went to a black screen. I had to remove the app and re install it, but it started over with the first level. :-(
Just got better
by Laurence72 on 2019/02/02 11:39
Ok, so I’m currently lvl 586 and haven’t written a review for this game until today. They just added a dictionary button on the screen to define mysterious words that you may have guessed on or maybe use it as a refresher to keep your mind sharp. I’m so glad they added it, it even does words In the pool that are legit but don’t make it on the board. Thank you for not being an ad dependable app. Also, the changing background is awesome after playing so many levels at a time. I have two permanent games on my phone for over two years and this is one of them. Thank you devs for not overthinking it. The only I don’t like is the crappy wheel of fortune thing for a bonus. Can you change it up a little or improve upon it? I suggest being able to win a point a puzzle to be able to spin in more than once, make the speed a bit more realistic on the wheel or pick from cards and get a bonus.
Crashes, lost progress, strange scoring....
by AngelPixel on 2018/03/28 03:39
Game started getting stuck loading at 1% then freezes and crashes. Can't even open it half the time... Repetitive words, made up words, ads after every single level...made the mistake of paying to remove them because at first the game is really fun and addictive. But once you get to higher levels and like ten in a row have the same words repeated just kinda makes it annoying after a while. Anyways there is a lot of potential to be a good game it just needs some fine tuning. The reward system needs work as well. It is very confusing right now, what are the flowers for? The gold rewards seem kind of skimpy as well. Also you lose your bonus streak even if you enter in a legit word and sometimes that legit word gets you the bonus.....I can understand losing your bonus for entering in something that is just gobbledegook but why not extra points for real words? Annnnnd then you can go to the next level and enter in that SAME word from that last puzzle and it accepts it?! So convoluted. Also after the game stopped opening I uninstalled it and reinstalled it to see if that would resolve the issue. I was also logged into Facebook at the time might I add. When I reinstalled the game and logged back in I had lost all my progress....what's the point of logging in when all it does is show me what my friends scores are. Also there doesn't seem to be game center support either... Wish I could get a refund.
Preferred the previous update
by Nice child on 2018/02/04 16:57
This update I do not like. It’s like the reversed in progress because normally updates are better but this one is like they went back like 10 steps. I can say I have noticed less ads. The music was so relaxing and now it’s a little more upbeat. The music is a large portion as to why played the game and now I really don’t care for it. They had spa like music, but like I said it’s a little more upbeat than usual. The app is so extra now. I like cut to the paste and now it does extra stuff when you found a word, they changed the whole layout, as I said I preferred the other layout way better- like the overall layout. At the end of the game when you could easily press X they make you wait for the flower to fully circle around and it is frustrating. Basically I played the game for relaxing purposes and now it doesn’t even do that anymore because they put in special effects which delays time has annoyed me. I don’t care for the path level up hung either. At one point you could just slide and it had relaxing picture of different elements and of course they took that away! I play less now.
Good Start, Needs Improvement
by Emannick on 2018/02/12 19:13
Overall I enjoy the game, but there are a few sore spots that need to be addressed; primarily with the words that it accepts/ does not accept. Depending on the level, the same word will or will not be accepted as an answer. If its acceptable on one level I should be able to input it on another level, even if its only as a bonus word. The issue gets compounded when putting in a word that is not accepted breaks your combo! How can I know ahead of time that the word wont work for that level and avoid losing the points? I frequently guess correctly spelled english words that simply aren’t allowed on that level and then later its a required word, where is the consistency? Why can I put in ‘Mauls’ but not ‘Maul’ in the same level? Just update the word banks and make any words that are real, but not required for the level, as bonus words so it wont break my combo score. Also, it would be nice if we could check what bonus words we’ve already gotten for the level. So like I said, fun but needs some work to be less frustrating
Juvenile exclusions of legitimate words
by Nytrip11 on 2019/06/20 15:53
I’m giving this a three stars because I have played this game for quite some time and achieved more than 2000 levels. However I have contacted the developer many times over their inconsistencies with legitimate words. I think they cater to a British on the defense rather than an American due to the slang that is included. They have some anatomical words, but not others. But they consider the word “god” an offensive word, but not goddess or godless. “Queer” is also considered an offensive word which I find extremely ridiculous, but slang such as “guv” From the British word governor is included. I could go on and on. “Hip” is not a word but “hips” is, “hoe” is not a word but “hoed” is considered legitimate. I think you get the picture. Also, it sometimes doesn’t recognize when you correctly connected a word, so you have to do it multiple times before it responds. Anyways I’m going to find a new game. If the developer had responded to me in any kind of coherent way I might have considered staying a customer. With the plethora of ads this game has, I’m sure I can find another to occupy my time.
Inconsistent
by SilkofGravel on 2018/04/02 10:37
So I agree that it is a way to pass the time. Some major improvements can be made. You get high scores by not guessing incorrect words. The issue with this: sometimes a word that is absolutely, definitely a word will not get credited, so then points are lost...but it’s a real word (e.g. “let”). Sometimes words that are in one puzzle (in the actual puzzle) don’t get credited as a real word in the next puzzle. So while you HAVE to guess, “ire,” in order to complete one puzzle, you need to make sure you avoid it in another puzzle. It’d be one thing if points were deducted just because there isn’t a spot for the word...but when you guess a legit word that isn’t part of the puzzle, it sometimes recognizes that you’ve discovered a word that isn’t used in the actual puzzle, and you still get points for that word with no deduction. Sometimes it will deduct points when I didn’t even get a chance to spell a word. Sometimes my finger hits the wrong starting letter, so I have to remove my finger from that letter. It seems that considers that a wrong spelling. I think that’s too much. And I agree with the bonus word issue. It’s not a “bonus” if it’s required. 🙄
💜 LOVE this game, never had any issues! 💙
by E~Jo on 2019/04/08 01:20
Love this game.. I’ve never downloaded a game to my phone and actually kept it.. I always get tired of them and trash them, then continue my search for that “perfect game” that fits me.. However, I downloaded this game over a year ago and still have and love it! 🥰It’s very easy to maneuver the map, very simple and easy to play, yet there’s enough of a challenge in finding words, that it’s not boring. I also love how, after you find a work, you can touch the word in the puzzle and it will give you the definition for that word! (Because there are several words that I find and think “no way that’s a word!” haha) I’ve never had any issues with losing coins unnecessarily, game crashing, etc! I’ve also won every-single-tournament I’ve played, which are worth 1,000 coins each time you win 1st place! 😍 DOWNLOAD this game; if you enjoy word puzzles, you will NOT be disappointed!!!!
Only play if you enjoy ads
by Dutchie0521 on 2018/06/14 01:32
Downloaded this game yesterday as a way to pass the time. Quit playing after 10 minutes because I spent half of that watching ads. Decided to give it another go today. Soon as I open it I’m promoted to purchase coins in the game for $1.99, I close it. Then I watch the 30 second ad you can’t close. Then I’m prompted for my “daily gift”. I accept it and try to open the level to play. I’m immediately prompted again to purchase coins for $1.99. I close it yet again. Then I’m forced to watch the 30 second ad, AGAIN before I can even play one level. I proceed to play one level which takes around 60 seconds. Then I’m prompted again for the $1.99 purchase. Close it again. Then watch another 30 second ad. Close it out. Try to open the next level to play it, guess whattttttt- prompted again for the $1.99 purchase, and then again for the 30 second ad. Needless to say, the game is being deleted. While I don’t mind doing my fair share of watching ads, as I know that’s how they make an income on these games, this is beyond ridiculous, and you will spend minimum 50-75% of your time closing out ads and purchase prompts.
Fun and relaxing
by ekelks44 on 2018/09/11 05:18
Spinning letters as if in a bingo bowl to find the word and various shorter words within it, tying each letter to another as you work it out, the letters appearing on a rack above the circle, as if it were another real-world board game, getting rewarded with flower petals and bonus coins as you climb your way from 'calm' to 'earth,' colours, landscapes changing as you go, this game is fun and relaxing. If you can't guess the word, hints are available, but just take a breather. You may find what you need after a short break. Use the crossword itself as you fill it in for clues too. I haven't spent money on clues, have just been rewarded them. You can play bonus levels just for that too or to become more familiar with the game. You might have come across a word in a new level already if you've already done it in a bonus round. I did spend money to remove ads, all at once. Not much money and certainly a more relaxing game.
Very fun and relaxing
by terpland on 2018/04/17 18:50
I play this game with my dad all the time and it is very fun. It really does pass the time and it helps your brain. The game is challenging too, finding words. I enjoy challenges. Sometimes, i even learn new words from that game. It’s easy to get coins. (All you do is watch commercials then you’ll gain coins.) there are so many levels, too! Like, 1,700+ I can’t wait to finish them all! I give this 5 stars. And other people out there who don’t like it because you can’t find the words and you rate it just one star. Wow. It is supposed to be challenging. And if you do not like the music, turn it off. That’s why there is a mute button. Don’t get frustrated just because you cannot pass a level and then rate it one star. It is a good game. You guys also delete the app just because of ads. Just wait until it is over, X out, and continue on. I know it is annoying but stop complaining for such dumb reasons.
Wonderful time competing against hubby 💖
by Rancet on 2018/10/24 17:23
I love everything most puzzles! And this game is one of them even when my first language is not English. I LOVE this game! My husband and I compete against each other every night usually playing 3, 5 or 10 games (depending on time available). The ads? They don’t bother me because the game is free! It is very easy for us to wait 5 or 8 seconds to terminate an ad and continue with the next game. I have found that they don’t include some words like God! That is puzzling for me but... oh well! I move on. It is a very entertaining and addictive game specially if you compete against others at the same level. One suggestion: PLEASE release a Spanish version of the game!!!! That way I can KILL my husband every night 🤣😂🤣 and not the other way around like it is now. Great job guys and girls! Love the game!
Terrible customer service
by Aangeldm01 on 2018/05/19 12:24
I played a game that had the same word twice. I had to use over 500 points, that I paid for, to get past the game because of the duplicate word. I wrote an email to the developer letting them know what happened and asked them to credit me the points. What would the harm have been to the developer to credit some points. However that didn’t happen and they didn’t even respond to my email with an apology. I sent several emails. There have been several kinks in the game where I have had to use my points to advance to the next game. I stated in my email that I would continue to rate the game low and guess what they did. They locked me into a 5 star rating where I’m not able to rate any lower than 5 stars through the game. Can you believe that. That is unethical. I’m completely shocked that a company would do something like this. I’m in the process of filing a complaint meanwhile I wonder what is the next shady thing this company does!! Three days in a row I have received the flowers and points for the daily awakening because it freezes up. I’m sure I won’t receive a response from that email either.
The ads are ridiculous!
by nbombzy on 2018/07/15 03:10
I like the game it is great for passing time but a lot of things bug me and almost make me want to stop playing which I’m sure I will at some point soon. First, there is literally an ad after every level and the levels really take one to five minutes for the most part. Thirty second ads every couple of minutes is over kill and ridiculous. Also, if you close out real quick to answer a text or something and go back in seconds later, you have to watch a 5-15 second ad for that. Secondly, you have to have coins to get hints and the amount of coins it cost versus how much they give for completing tasks makes it impossible. Thirdly, my husband and I both play and we have noticed that sometimes you have to put in the same word multiple times to have it accept it and a lot of the levels are the same. I like the concept of the game, but all those things just really frustrate me. I hope they change it soon or I’ll just delete it and find something else.
Fun but has some hang-ups
by Nevsollee on 2018/07/01 11:13
I’ve spent a while playing this game, and while I’ve enjoyed it more than other word games I’ve tried, it still has some issues I think need to be addressed. First, ad glitches. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried to watch an ad to get coins used in the game, only to have it get stuck on a black screen. You end up having to restart the app and you never get those coins. Second, inconsistency in the words accepted. In all puzzles some words that are not part of the crossword are still accepted as “bonus” words. But it seems to vary from puzzle to puzzle which are accepted. For example: one puzzle might accept “TIN” as a bonus word while another might not. It’s frustrating when you get to the bonus combo mode and you lose it on a word that should have been accepted universally. All that said I’m not usually a big fan of word games but this one has grabbed me. I’m still going to play for now, and hope for some fixes!
Enjoyable & challenging with scoring & time issues &
by Dwell! on 2018/07/05 16:46
Word Crossy is a fun & challenging game. There are some problems that reduce enjoyment of the game and rob players of points & time. Like other players have mentioned, the flower/coin point system is vague. Please resolve these problems. I’ really like this game; but, am considering uninstalling it. Here are a few examples of glitches & issues: 1. Stolen coins: Game took 50 coins & gave me nothing but red, swirling sparkles when Lightbulb Tool was selected. No hint was displayed; so, I did not get what I paid for. 2. Full bank won’t empty: Missing green Free-Empty option button: Green free-empty option button does not always appear in full cat bank option box. So, I could not empty bank & coins earned in next game were lost since they couldn’t fit. 3. NEXT game button after cat bank fills up: Sometimes the “NEXT” game button appears in error after the cat bank fills up instead of the special box with the options for free-empty or purchase. So, future coins are lost since full bank couldn’t be emptied. 4. Ads (too many, too long): 30-second advertisement after each game is excessive. No, I won’t buy the ad-free game option with real money because game cannot be trusted with my play money/game coins due to the glitches I described above. 5. Lonnng scoring transitions between games. Slow, flying flowers & coins counting in addition to long ads after each game ... too much time wasted.
Could be a great game
by hialeahnarmi on 2018/08/06 16:50
The ads are unbelievable. You literally get an add after every game. It slows down the game and makes it annoying because you can’t even mute every commercial/advertisement so if you are in public and an ad pops up, you have to lower the volume. My other, and even more annoying complaint, is that you can lose a streak because the game doesn’t accept a legitimate word. You might be able to use a word in 1 round to only find out that the same word is not accepted in another round. So even though you know the word has worked before, it might be rejected later. This in turn breaks your streak if you have been getting multiple words in a row. On top of that, certain words won’t be accepted like countries or cities for most of the games but then later on you have to use the Geneva. Like what the heck?!? Why would I even consider using Geneva if you have kept cities, states, countries, etc in every other instance? This game could have been so much better but as is I can only give it a 2
It’s enjoyable, but has some issues
by Kittycam on 2018/04/13 12:09
First of all, the ads.. never have I played a game where there is an ad that plays after EVERY single level, most of which are completed in just a few seconds. Isn’t this game just an exact copy of that one cookie word game anyways? Last issue I have is that the grammar is far from perfect.. First there are tons of perfectly acceptable English words that if entered are deemed incorrect (for example, “ton” was not considered a word, plus the word needed for the puzzle was “tun”.. really now? Come on game creators), however the biggest issue is some words required to solve the puzzle were not even actual words. The game is fun, don’t get me wrong, but the ads are far too frequent and therefore I find myself not wanting to play nearly as much as I would if they were less. I understand that for a game to be free there needs to be ads, but this one isn’t good enough to pay to have them removed, or to literally spend as much time watching ads as I do playing the actual game.
Fun Game
by Honey1126 on 2018/03/08 08:29
It’s a fun game, but frustrating at times, because 1) I feel like they use words that are so obscure they almost seem made up. It does force me to look up these words and increase my vocabulary, but at the same time frustrating if I’m trying to solve and don’t know what that final word is. 2) every time I try to use the daily spin (whether it’s on my iPhone or iPad) an ad will pop up advertising a coin sale and when I “X” out of that, the wheel is now frozen and I can’t get my daily spin in. Which brings me to 3) This “50% off” on the prize wheel is dumb and when I can manage to click on the wheel before the ad pops up (very rare by the way), it seems that 90% of the time it will land on this, even though it clearly should have stopped before that or it was going fast enough that it should have passed it. Because of these issues, I’m hesitant to buy any coins. If issues #2 & 3 aren’t fixed soon, I will be deleting the app and finding something less frustrating.
Coping Skills
by Lizzie0914 on 2018/09/09 23:45
I really feel like this game calms you down and it’s really relaxing especially when you have anxiety. Many viewers cope with this game and made it really far into the levels, that’s because they feel calm and collected. They wouldn’t even notice that they have gone to like level 45 to 4,080. That’s because it’s beautiful backgrounds and music is very soothing and relaxing, my family loves it. My Gram loves it and got me hooked. Personally I think this is true because I just started today about 5 minutes ago and I’m already on level 30. You may have other opinions but I’m sure many people feel this way. This is for the people who have anxiety and many panic attacks. If you have bad days just play this awesome game. I really love it and so should you.
Skillful Crossy!
by gbarnes. on 2018/07/01 02:06
I absolutely love this game and would have given it a 5 all day long. However, the game rewards you to hook it up to your Facebook page which I never do but, against my better judgement I did and as soon as I did, all of my inventory was taken, except 5 pieces each. I had at least 100 each maybe more! I also had an abundance of coins. Again against my better judgment I bought many different piggy bank packages which, I never do and I mean never! This is actually the first game I have ever purchased things for that shows you how much I liked the game! After this happened, I sent the developers an email and they have yet to respond to me. I’m not sure how much longer I’m going to keep this game because I’m not happy that the developers did think my complaint was important enough to respond to. Good Luck to all you gamers and my best advice to you is DO NOT HOOK YOUR GAME UP TO FACEBOOK BECAUSE SOMEONE MIGHT STEAL ALL YOUR HARD EARNED INVENTORY!!!
Random????
by Burtonious on 2019/05/20 19:33
I will start off by saying that I plan on removing this game from my phone unless someone will explain the logic behind the decisions of the the game at higher levels. I understand that the game must increase in difficulty, but when the same decision produces different outcomes, one starts to consider that trying to understand is senseless. This was an interesting and challenging game until to get to the point where it seems there is no logic or strategy behind the randomness. In the butterfly challenges sometimes a word will remove one butterfly and in another attempt it will only remove one. Of course failed attempts leaves you with two options quit and return the next day when you have more attempts or pay for extra attempts. It also appears that you have to play the challenge so many times that it will finally allow to to move past the level. This returns me to my previous statement where the designers force you to pay for extra attempts. This was a fun game, now it’s just an exercise in futility.
Not the worst game
by Mooshiedog on 2018/01/27 17:36
It’s ok. The amount of ads is ridiculous, sometimes having to watch a 30 second ad after playing one round that might take ten seconds to complete. I ended up just turning off Wifi so n9 ads can load. Scoring is inconsistent to say the least. You get flowers for correctly guessing words, but the flowers don’t seem to get you anything. If you want to buy more coins for clues one of the options is to buy either a “half hour” or “hour”, but they don’t tell you half hour or hour of what. You get extra points for guessing words that aren’t in the puzzle, but that just rewards you for being wrong. There are no bonus points for finishing within a certain amount of time or solving the puzzle without guessing incorrect words. That makes no sense at all. And you could get ten points for solving a fifteen word puzzle but 25 points for solving a six word puzzle. Makes no sense at all and don’t expect any explanation of the rules to be found anywhere.
Ads run longer than the levels, and after every level!
by Jedi365 on 2018/08/10 00:41
I have never downloaded and deleted an app so fast in my life! I’m not unfamiliar with free apps having ads, but this is literally a 30 second ad every time you get through a level regardless of how long it takes you (once you get past level 10 or so, which doesn’t take too long). Then you have to close 3 different windows. And heaven forbid you don’t accidentally leave the app, because then you have to watch the ads again before you resume play, even if you completely watched them before! Not to mention the game play they advertised this game with looked totally different (it depicted making a new picture from other pictures—for example a snail and a match and the ad made a “lollipop” with the match stick and snail shell) which is nothing like this junky game that downloaded! Don’t waste your time downloading and playing this game, unless you want to watch the same 3 app commercials repeatedly for longer than you spend playing!
Enjoy with a couple of suggestions
by Expedites 4561 on 2019/07/14 22:43
I love the game and play almost every day. I usually finish and then go back to play previous games. It would be nice to easily access them without having to scroll down over and over. When you tap on the level list to the left of the screen, you see all the levels but cannot pull them up. It would be really great if you could do that, as it would make it much easier to keep playing. The newest update is filled with lovely colors which makes it a beautiful app. With the newest update, the circles that cover each letter are a bit large. I make more mistakes now because they get overlapped and interconnected. At least on a phone screen where you don’t have a lot of room. Maybe make them a little smaller? Overall, though, I really do enjoy playing this game!
Words that are not words
by Bbg012 on 2018/01/25 19:16
I’m not sure if the “words” are chosen at random or what, but once you get to the higher levels, you have to try to guess words that aren’t even actually words. So may be a prefix or suffix or just something totally made up! Also, the scoring is really ambiguous. No clear cut scoring rules. Also, you sometimes get coins for bonus words, but you mostly get “flowers” which do absolutely nothing for you. A hint costs FIFTY coins which is INSANELY high when you can’t guess a word that isn’t a word. I’ve never left a review for a game before but this game is frustrating the heck out of me! It’s addicting and fun, but there needs to be some things the developers address. I’ve already purchased the full app to get rid of the ads because they were way too excessive. I’m sure nothing will change, but I had to address these things that have really been annoying me.
You have to play to pay
by LeeEllen123 on 2019/05/12 19:16
I have used this game for a long time. Since it was new. And through the years they have sadly gotten so greedy. Recently they started tournaments. I noticed right away that when I started to play then others would start. I soon realized I was playing against a bot. In the last tournament I took screen shots of this and the fact the top two winners had the same name and the same picture. I just stopped playing it altogether after that as if you really want to play the game you need to buy coins. I can’t play without buying coins, but they use such bizarre words like words that are used in medicine, etc so if you want to move on you have to buy your way out. So until they give written instructions and come forward with the fact during tournaments your playing against the house basically and they are driving up the scores in order to get people to buy coins then I sadly can’t play it anymore. And I truly did enjoy most aspects of this game.
On Wi-Fi
by Nyala10 on 2018/05/25 19:56
So I'm at home on Wi-Fi but when I want to get more lives by watching a video it says "connect to the internet and try again". Right... I'm connected ok? Then I have similar issues that everyone else seems to have: 1) no rules or explanations of rewards 2) funky non-English words 3) ads between every level 4) what the heck are the flowers for? 5) why do we have to pay to open the piggy bank when we've earned the gold coins and they're ours? I'm not paying a cent on this game and I'd advise others not to either. 6) words are accepted on one level but not another 7) have you noticed all the reviews are January through early April. What happened to the rest of the year? The reviews are from years past it seems but after march it scrolls back to January. I think the developer has lost interest and doesn't pay attention to our reviews to fix the issues.
Fun, but also frustrating
by heyjessibrown on 2018/05/17 19:22
When I’m in the groove, I love this game. Unfortunately, it’s designed to interrupt that groove constantly and there are some annoying elements of the game. For one, you have to wait forever while your combo quest progress sliders move at a glacial pace. Then, the cat bank thing pops up every few rounds, with an extra attempt to solicit in-app purchases tacked on once in a while, which you have to close before moving on. And, while this is a small thing to some, the constant typos make it look like whoever’s designing this game straight-up doesn’t care. Plus, whatever dictionary they’re using confounds me. I’ve broken streaks on words that I know are real words, and been stumped by “words” that are actually prefixes or informal abbreviations. And yet, I keep playing, so there’s obviously *something* good happening here.
It's alright
by K.C.87 on 2018/01/13 03:23
Super fun way to pass time.. the ads are annoying but for $ you can get rid of them. One bad point aside from it not taking words that aren't on the crossword as bonus words like it should. When you get so many bonus words the meter fills up so you get coins, BUT I don't know if it's because you don't get enough bonus words in a row or what but my meter fills after so many words and stays full. It doesn't give coins or reset like it's supposed to I've deleted and re installed the app too many times to count to try to fix it. But once I reach level like 32 I don't get coins for bonus words which is a total ripoff. So meh good way to pass time but I wouldn't spend any actual money on it
Piggy bank full but can’t redeem/empty
by JayGee too on 2018/07/24 04:27
I’m at level 493. I just filled the piggybank again but it won’t let me retrieve the coins AND it won’t add any more. So I’m playing and completing puzzles and not getting coins. There is what appears to be a timer at the bottom of the button used to retrieve the piggybank coins. My timer says 18:23:19. Does that mean I can’t get my coins for 18 hours plus. If so I might as well quit playing until tomorrow. I’ve had some of the other problems mentioned as well. I saw somewhere that once you got 10,000 flowers there was some reward. I have over 12,000 and still waiting to get whatever reward. I too have noticed that valid words do not score. I know that 2 letter words don’t count but I’ve had many 4-5 letter words that don’t score anything. I did discover that if one taps the “Bonus” to the left of the flower at the top it will reveal the bonus words found and the number of bonus words available. That leads me to believe that not all dictionary words are valid as bonus words. One just gets so many per puzzle I guess. I too would like to see a more complete description of the point system and also what makes a combo a great combo versus an outstanding combo etc. Lastly, I’ve discovered many slang words are valid and I didn’t expect that.
I Love this game But
by MommaHaneline on 2019/05/06 02:07
So I will start out by saying I love this game and I’m totally addicted. I’m 500 levels in so I’ll give you my full opinion. There is an ad after every round which was annoying at first when the rounds are really easy, but they get a little harder and take a little longer to complete so the adds stopped bothering me pretty quickly. I don’t understand the scoring on the Butterfly card rounds... which is a bit annoying because I think I could complete the harder levels easier if I understood how you can get more than one butterfly at a time instead of it just seeming random. Some of the words are a little out there but I love the dictionary feature. So as soon as I guess a word that I don’t know what it means I can click the Aa button and it tells you the definition. I like that because word games are supposed to help you expand your vocabulary. The biggest thing that still irritates me about the game though is that when I saw the add for the game while playing another game, the word puzzle in the add is nowhere to be found in the actual game. Which is kind of messed up on advertising’s side. Like come on.... Overall... I am addicted and I do like the game.
Needs Some Fixing
by Yeah, You Know on 2018/03/23 01:38
After almost every round you will have to watch an ad, if not after every round. This is very annoying, and makes the game pale in comparison to similar games with less obtrusive advertising. Also, the bonus word should not be mandatory. It’s called a bonus for a reason. I also put ton in as a word, but apparently that’s not the correct spelling, despite the fact it is. In fact, there are many times you will spell a word but they want it spelled in some European way. Finally, there have been ones when I’ve put in word after word that just acts as a bonus instead of actually being in the puzzle. Which is just annoying. Actually, I have one more complaint which is the finger tracking on the game is abysmal. So many times I have traced over certain letters but they won’t connect. I’ve had the same problem on my tablet and my father’s phone.
Argh
by Fetid pair of donkey kidneys on 2018/02/27 19:48
I have so many frustrations with this game and most are about words. 1. Words that aren’t words. I know there are words that I don’t know yet, and that’s okay, but when you look up a bizarre word and can’t find a definition, it’s crap. 2. Bonus words. I’m not talking about the stand along word you get coins for. When you get a word that’s not on the board, they count it as a bonus word. Whether they count terms or not varies widely and is hugely inconsistent. Being punished for getting a legitimate word that was in a previous board is immensely frustrating. 3. Word choice. I get that it’s meant to get harder, and that’s fine, but the words they choose sometimes are awful in context. There will be rounds when everything you put in is counted off as bonus and you can’t get a darn thing on the board because they skipped over so many good words to focus on bizarre crap. I’ve had rounds with 20 bonus words when I’ve had to look up words because they chose a poor selection. I have a good vocabulary, so when I’ve tried everything normal and am on to being punished for trying “nary”, it’s crap. I’m on level 640-ish and it’s utterly ridiculous. All of this points back to money. In the game setup it’s obvious they’re trying to set it up in such a way that you feel confident and then just use a hint on that one word.
New Update Confusion
by Acandies on 2018/09/20 03:10
For some reason my hidden talent in life is making words out of any assortment of letters so I love games like this. Before the update I could fly through levels but if I got stuck on one word (usually some old usage or British pronunciation word as some have mentioned before) I could just spend some of the massive coin total that I have accrued over the course of 900+ levels and figure it out after one or two letters. Now with the latest update there is literally zero usage for the coins! Makes no sense. Now you have to use one of there 3 hint features which you can only slowly collect via a daily bonus by logging on once a day. I get that’s how you guys make your money and stay relevant but as someone who will never spend money on such a simple game it is quite irksome. Miss the good ol days of Text Twist.
Incomplete
by FightingTheDark on 2018/02/19 06:29
As someone who enjoys words and vocabulary games, I was excited to get this. However the dictionary this game uses is both incomplete and inconsistent. On some levels the crossword will have a word (eg. pope) AND the plural of the same word (eg. popes). However on other levels it does not recognize plurals of words, not even as bonus words. And since the scoring system gives you bonuses for consecutive crosswords and bonus words found, it’s quite frustrating to have a high consecutive word count and then make the plural of a word and have it break the chain because the dictionary doesn’t recognize it. (Eg. bite/bites). Also. In one level it recognized the word “not”. But not the word “ton”. It DID however recognize the word “tun” which actually is a real word. But come on. Ruin my word streak for “ton”? These are real examples from within the first 20 levels of the game. After which I deleted the app.
Rip off
by ianmagary on 2018/01/07 19:26
I paid for no advertising and the latest update of this app is ridden with stupid pop up adds for in app purchases, social media connection and coins and other silly unneeded and very annoying pop ups. I now have to "X" out of multiple layers of BS, self serving ads the developer wants to throw out there to get to the actual puzzle. Their dictionary acumen is horrible too. Over 50% of the time when you put a legitimate, correctly spelled word out there in hopes it's one of the ones for the puzzle. The app doesn't even recognize, nor give you credit for finding a word that fit the letters, yet was not in the puzzle. Needless to say, I'm done with the greedy, self serving app developers. There's much better games out there and ways to spend my time. I will seek refund from the developer first, then Apple if no resolution. I emailed the developer 2 weeks ago and it's been crickets ever since. Do yourself a favor and find any other app than this one!
Uses old English?
by Haunted Spit on 2018/07/07 17:07
I enjoy this game but spend half of my game time in disbelief, searching for a dictionary definition of words I have never heard of. Many words used in this game are from old English or British use (?). Such as “deb”, “loo”, “pooh”, etc. And many I have never heard or seen used in a sentence, such as “rewin”. Also, I notice the first words I find are pretty common, such as “sour” but it won’t be used in the puzzle. Instead it is collected in a “gift box” as a bonus word. If you collect enough of these, you are awarded coins. It seems the developer could’ve put these words in the puzzle but failed to do so and the gift box words are a fix to that problem. As other reviews have mentioned, many times the words used in the puzzle are singular and also plural forms of a word which becomes stale and not very challenging (e.g. “her” and “hers”).
It could be better
by Olivoial on 2018/07/28 23:02
All in all I’ve enjoyed the game. It froze on me so I’m going to delete it because the screen has faded to black the past 2 times I’ve opened the app. I’ve played for the past few weeks and it’s been great to pass time. I even got the family involved a few times which was nice. I like the daily rewards etc... and the whole set up. My dislikes: sometimes it doesn’t take the word the first time you enter it to later find out it’s the same word. There are tons of ads, that aren’t versatile - just the same ads. I do like that you can win coins by watching them. My last dislike is because the words sometimes don’t make sense, or they’re really similar like: hike & hikes. Minor corrects could make this game great.
Good but not without flaws.
by Nameless schlub on 2018/11/10 15:24
Pretty fun game. Got a few weeks of enjoyment out of it for only 3 bucks to remove ads (a necessity if you want to play it for any length of time in my opinion). Minus one star for not including some very common words in their word bank and breaking your word combo for entering them. The game has been out too long to have not corrected some of these. And minus another star for the daily “puzzles”. It’s more of a daily guessing game and it tracks how successful you were at the guessing for the rest of the month. Seems odd to make people feel like a failure and keep track of it in a game that seems themed toward making one feel peaceful and relaxed. If neither of those things would bother you, you’ll probably really enjoy the game. I will keep looking for something a little more well executed.
Fun but frustrating
by neverenuff50 on 2019/06/14 04:48
Game is fun, and small repetitive words do seem a bit too common. Many times the coins I earn are impossible to empty from piggy bank, so it gets really frustrating. Good game, but bugs need work. A new butterfly game appeared for a few days, and the scoring and completion of the game were incomprehensible, as it went really fast. I wound up losing almost a thousand coins I had amassed. Very frustrating, and I still don’t know why it happened. Confusing. The score section keeps telling me I can get more points when the pot is more than half full, but it has NEVER happened in well over a thousand levels. Very disappointing! I earn way more points than I’m ever able to get. Needs a bit of work, but it’s a fun game.
Video ads
by Mam-maw CAB on 2018/07/21 02:04
This morning I have watched 5 videos and have recited 0 pats. Some videos are freezing seconds in and will not clearsame thing is occurring. I had 3 friends playing they have all dropped out because of the videos after each win and watching videos with no points and freezing after selecting a word. You have to leave the game for 10-15 minutes to get the screen unfrozen. This all started after revision. When I switch from the daily game to the main game it goes to black causing me to loss by 50% off incentives. This is getting old. After watching videos screen goes black. Cannot get it back. Help please 7/20 again when I playa video for points the screen goes black and it takes 15-30 minutes to reset. Please fix this,I love playing but I don’t have all day.
Effective sleep aid
by Kelsey509 on 2019/05/14 05:36
Like other reviewers, I too have no clue how the scoring works in this game. I also do not understand the rules of the “bonus” rounds with the butterflies and I choose to skip them because I just find them frustrating, I almost feel like that’s their point. If you fail a round you have to start all over unless you use coins to continue. I am also consistently befuddled by the words this game will and will not let you play. “Pooh” is determined to be a valid word, however the game will not allow me to play “hip” or “god”. That all said, I find this game to be an effective way to wind down before bed as it always puts me to sleep. I have been playing it fairly regularly for a few weeks now despite its many flaws and the number of ads I’m forced to sit through.
Only good to pass a little time.
by CJ.D. on 2018/05/24 19:30
Tap the watch an Add for extra coins coin box and nothing happens other than the box just goes away. Complete the Daily Word Challenge to receive 25 coins and the Tap to receive screen freezes (while music continues to play) so you can not receive your coins. The only way to continue to play is to go Home and restart App thus losing the 25 DWC coins. Many times words to be found are not spelled properly or are actually not real words at all. A lot of trial & error guessing and waste of coins. Most times you enter a word and it will not register-UNTIL, at games end and after you spend coins to provide a letter. Game coins won go into a piggy bank that you can not retrieve but once every 12 hours then, you are only given a total of 50 coins of all the coins you have won-UNLESS, you pay to receive all the coins.
Doesn’t support across devices; ads don’t respect muting
by NannylouG on 2018/04/24 12:20
The game itself is ok. Nothing addictive but it passes the time. When my iPad needs charged and I play on my laptop or iPhone, the status level doesn’t transfer. UGH! The ads are very annoying because: 1) they are after EVERY level, 2) they are redundant (the same ads over and over) 3) they often play music even when the game has been muted (don’t play when you’re supposed to be doing something else!!!) I realize the intent is to get me to pay to remove ads but I actually like to see other games on occasion. Plus I won’t pay if the game isn’t cross compatible or addicting. I expect in a week I will be bored and delete it. UPDATE: Needs some instructions and guidelines regarding: 1) Scoring. How does that work? 2) I still haven’t figured out what the coins and flowers are for. 3) I can’t tell from the icons what each “help” item is. When I clicked on one to find out, I consumed it. 4) There are a LOT of valid words in the standard scrabble dictionary which are not recognized by the puzzle or bonus. It’s ok if they’re not in the puzzle but they should give bonus. 5) it seems to go through instability crashes occasionally.
Could be so much better
by BobRobApex on 2018/04/15 17:10
Update: I like some of the improvements to ways to get coins and the new power ups but still missing very vanilla words at each level (kills the streaks you're on) and the multi level (and longer) ads are really annoying. Dropping to 2 stars. It's fun to find the words in the puzzles but supremely frustrating that it doesn't recognize relatively common words. One puzzle I got credit for ERA and EAR but not ARE. Other times HUES is a word but HUED isn't. Needs to have lots more recognized words and be consistent from puzzle to puzzle. I also think you should get a bonus if you get all the words without making any mistakes. Guess I can start adding words here that the game should count as good...level 1032-micron; 1078-shire, hires, heirs; another level a couple before didn’t take are or ear but did take era; 1083-togs, tugs, gush, hugs, guts; 1434-gavel, ravel
Mostly fun and engaging, but maddeningly inconsistent.
by rwt1138 on 2018/06/23 18:45
There are a lot of fun and challenging puzzles, and for the most part I find it an entertaining challenge, but the developers really need to tighten up their dictionary. Words that are required to complete some puzzles won’t even register as words in others. Since the game awards bonus points for streaks, it can be extremely annoying to have one broken because you entered a word that was required in the previous puzzle. In addition, it should recognize simple words. The puzzle I’m currently on has rejected dot, ton, not, duo, don, all simple words and all of which are required in other puzzles. Meanwhile, it ignores some obscure words but has puzzles requiring lenis, secondary, and other extremely obscure words. Fix the dictionary issue and make it consistent, and this would get more stars from me.
Fun game to play when you’re bored, but has some issues.
by hburns11 on 2018/01/13 16:29
Fun game to play when you’re bored, but has some issues. The object is to get as many words as you can in a row, to get the most points, but if you miss one, you won’t be able to get as many points. The problem is that it won’t accept many of the words that I enter, that are definitely real words. If it’s not on the crossword, then it should be a bonus word, but some are entirely rejected so that your correct words streak is ended and you’ll get significantly less points for the level. For instance, it didn’t accept “mom,” but it did accept “moms.” Other words it didn’t always accept include: rut, rot, rat, tar, hot, hat, and many others. These should not count against you. Also the ads are really annoying, and their ‘special offers’ for coins and to be ad-free are crazily priced.
