Spin wheel award is rigged
by Soren446 on 2020/12/02 02:33
The spin the wheel award is very much rigged and nearly impossible to win anything other than a 50% off power up. It’s extremely obvious and gives no indication of probability to the user. A random gift box would be less irritating
Pop up ads
by watch who you let advertise on 2020/11/30 00:37
If you have Jane Closet as a pop up add I want to warn people who play this game not to purchase anything from. I ordered from them and once I selected place my order, my money was gone and the product was not what they advertised. What I mean is either I have to keep crappy product or spend more money to send them back than what the items were worth. They want me to send them to Korea but they were shipped to me from Ohio. I think you should not let businesses like this to advertise with you so removed your game from my phone.

Keeps Crashing
by Tiggersmommy on 2020/11/19 08:05
Glad I’m not the only one who is having problems since the latest update. Love this app when it’s working properly, not recently though.
I love Word Crossy
by Bobbie Queen on 2020/11/19 03:24
I love to guess these words and I don’t care about any coins or being the best. I just love this game. I’m totally addicted and it’s educational. If I want to know what a word means I just touch the first letter of the word and a dictionary pops up.
Update
by screw You!{6~2€{9 on 2020/11/19 01:57
Current update screwed up my game. The game keeps crashing no matter how many times I close it then open it again!!! 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬
Updated now I cannot open the game
by nicknameruleisdumb on 2020/11/19 01:50
After the last update, I cannot open the game. When I click on the icon, it acts like it is opening but then closes right away. Sometimes it lets me get to the game map but then closes.
The last update killed this game on my phone
by twd107 on 2020/11/19 01:17
I love this game... played almost every day and made it to level 620. The app now closes every time it’s opened after the most recent os update.
Somewhat challenging
by apple annoying on 2020/11/18 23:27
Enjoy playing, hate the ads. Yes I know I can pay to eliminate. That’s not happening. Some are half minute long...really annoying. But the biggest annoyance just occurred: an ad completely in Spanish. Almost deleted game because of it! Update: Been playing for some time; am at level 6000+. As of yesterday, game loads & then goes to home page. Have tried half dozen times, rebooted iPad,etc, same result. Reluctantly, am deleting. May load in future but am done with it now. Tried on different iPad. Still problematic. Did complete reset on both pads, thinking problems may be hardware. Same issues. These things have just been past couple days. Has there been an update? Appears so. Note letters are smaller. Plus ads have become intolerable, especially when playing in tournaments. Going to have to dump them from phone & 2 iPads. P.S. reduced to 1 star. More update. Reloaded on older pad after deleting & doing a reset (at level 5000+). Very, very slow for a few games. Now it has gone back to problem that caused deletion, game loads (takes forever) all the way to game start, then dumps me back to home page over and over. What's the deal?
Help
by aunty cee on 2020/11/18 19:03

Really like this game but your update 2 days ago has a PROBLEM——please fix!!!!!! Wow it’s been 3 days and it still totally shuts down when you try to use the app after this download sure wish you’d FIX this

Word Crossy
by 77JBoy on 2020/11/18 12:48
The word Crossy stoped working on my iPhone And I’m at level 1907 there’s no way to update the app so it seems like I need to delete the app and reinstall, that means I have to start all over. So poopy!! As soon as I open the app it crashes. So it gets one half star
Help!
by Jchadwe4 on 2020/11/18 05:22
Since the new update, every time I open the app, it shuts down after 3 seconds. How can I fix this? I’ve been playing for a long time, and I don’t want to lose my progress by deleting and re downloading. What can I do?
Please update!! There are bugs!
by Music guru L on 2020/11/18 03:21
I love this game and am on level 3000. Please push through an update that gets rid of bugs causing the app to crash every time I open it. Can’t play my favorite game!
App no longer working?
by CUTigress06 on 2020/11/18 03:16
I couldn’t find a way to contact the developers, so I’m hoping they somehow read this. Ever since the update 3 days ago, my app hasn’t worked. It will continually close whenever I try to get to my puzzle or anything. I tried un-installing and re-installing, but that didn’t help it.
Update
by mer1963 on 2020/11/18 02:54
I just updated the app and discovered the letters are now smaller. I don’t like the smaller letters and prefer the larger size. For some reason the looks like the only change. I don’t like it
small letters? why?
by Katieiiieidizzsns on 2020/11/18 02:42
i play this game everyday it’s very relaxing and i enjoy hence the 4 stars but the latest update that made the letters significantly smaller is really making it not as enjoyable. my speed and accuracy are now hinder bc for the past 4600 levels ive been accustomed to a certain size of letter and now it’s all small. it’s also kinda hard to see and makes the app look clunky. the size of letters beforehand was much better.
App keeps crashing!!

Ever since the new update, the app keeps crashing!!
Fun game when the app works
by 1g3e1r31t on 2020/11/18 01:04
I like this game except the app constantly freezes or closes itself out after seconds of being opened.
Crash and burn
by Jus1moregame on 2020/11/17 23:00
Since the app has been updated it’s no longer working. Very frustrating and hope it gets fixed soon.

This app was great. I played it all the time. It was a great way to kill time when waiting in a drs office. Then 2 days ago, it stopped working!😩 Whenever I try to open it, it comes on, I get the opening screen, and then it shuts down and closes. I can’t even play it at all. Not cool!

2.8.5 crashes
by peskymom on 2020/11/17 04:43
Your 2.8.5sdk update from 2 days ago causes the app to crash every time. I was well over 600 levels in and had to download your competitors app because word Crossy no longer works. Please fix!
Issues with Game
by Kristipdx on 2020/11/17 04:26
I typically LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this game, I’ve been playing it forever & am at level 9,000 + (don’t judge lol) and now all of a sudden it’s not working. I thought maybe it was a weird glitch or needed an update. Nope. It’s been almost two days. I don’t want to have to start over. 😭
Letters too small/far apart since update
by TurnerUW on 2020/11/17 03:43
Ever since the update, the letters are much smaller, and thus they are spaced further apart. It’s much harder to play with one hand and I keep missing letters in the words I’m trying to spell. Make the letters the normal size!! No one asked for this update!
Wont stay open after latest update!!!
by Flipin funny and fun on 2020/11/17 03:32
Can’t play anymore after this latest update because the app won’t stay open☹️
Fun but frustrating
by Worthless or worse on 2020/11/17 02:37
The game is fun to play. But when I get to a certain level, it appears, the app just crashes every time I try to launch it. It may be that the update is causing these crashes. But I simply cannot play today. I can’t get in. I shut down my phone and relaunched. No improvement.
App closing
by One is curious on 2020/11/17 01:35
Is there no customer support? This app closes every time I open it! It’s so frustrating!
Enjoy playing this game
by l~lady on 2020/11/17 00:40
Have been playing for 2 years and this latest update as of 2 days ago has left me unable to play~the game doesn't come up and if it does it goes off right away. Very frustrating~ would love for the latest update to get the bugs out!!!

I’ve loved this game for years but it went from no problems to crashing a few times per week and now I can’t even keep it open to start a game. Deleting it now.
Won’t load - please look into this
by marva7 on 2020/11/16 16:57
I played this game every day and I loved it. I’m not sure what happened but now it won’t load. It might be because of the latest update. Please look into this. I only gave it one star due to the fact that there’s something wrong with the game.
Latest update is just poor
by mokayaker on 2020/11/16 15:52
I play this game a lot and enjoy the relaxing tones and fonts. I’d give it five stars but for the last update. Now, it crashes all the time.
Love the App - Issue With Latest Update
by TheConcertSwami on 2020/11/16 15:37
The Word Crossy app is great however the latest update downloaded yesterday, 11/15 is now causing the app to crash on my iPad Mini 5 (256 gb and is the latest generation). This is happening before and after the iOS update to 14.2.
Newest update seems to be problematic
by phatdaddy60 on 2020/11/16 15:14
I have been playing this game for a long time and never had a problem. After downloading this newest update, the game has repeatedly bounced me out. It’s unplayable. This is normally a 5-star game. Please fix.
Problems !

2.8.5 causing app failure
by Bayou Dawn on 2020/11/16 10:57
I play this game daily and since the app update, my game won’t open. It opens to various points then just closes up and disappears. I’ll retract this rating when I get my game back.
After upgrade, app doesn’t run
by Joss_Carter on 2020/11/16 06:29
I upgraded on 11/14/20 and now the game doesn’t run. You open the app, try to create a word, and it shuts down. Your patch doesn’t work. Please fix ASAP.
Changed the font size
by jezmenz on 2020/11/16 06:28
Why?! After all this time why change the font? It’s way too small. Not only to see but to swipe it makes it more difficult. Please change it back!!

Problems
by kentmon on 2020/11/15 19:42
I really enjoy this game but recently have starting having problems. I am using an iPad with iOS 14.1. I am in the midrange of the 7600s for number of games. The app has started hanging when I complete a game. I get the coins added to the pot where the coins for buying hints are stored but I don’t get the coins for the extra words I found. I have to restart the app. Then sometimes the app just blows away on its own. This is disturbing. I also have just under 65,000 coins if that makes a difference.
Update

Help from developers is awful
by AztekGod69 on 2020/11/14 15:23
Don’t delete this game or you’ll have to start all over, I was on an advanced level and I restore my device, now it says that I can’t restore my progress because I have no many devices linked to my Facebook account when I only got one device. :(
Mostly fun
by JJJJeebers on 2020/11/10 10:35
Overall a fun game. You’ll never get the coin jackpot on a free spin. Played over a year and yet to get more than 100 coins.
Why the changes?
by miss_behavin099 on 2020/10/28 22:28
I used to LOVE this game but now I can’t get the sound to turn off during the adds. I turned it off in settings but it only silences the game which is extremely frustrating.
Fun but quirky
by DevotedMom on 2020/10/26 00:28
Agree with other reviews that directions would be helpful, why do I have to sign in to FB to play the same game on multiple devices, etc. My first whine is why does the new game score keeper cover a word? WTH? Do the designers play the game? You can’t see how many squares it is until you score. So, if it’s the last word solved - LIKE THE BONUS WORD - and haven’t really been paying attention, you have to try and play a word you haven’t played to score to see the boxes. Idiots. My other criticism is why do some words - that are actual words - not count? For example why does the word “hips” count but not “hip?” Get a dictionary folks.
My game stopped working

Very Good Word Game
by CrossBronx on 2020/10/24 20:13
One of the better ones but way too many ads for games. I paid not to have but changed phones and lost it. They did not honor it on my iPad either.
Ads are way too long!
by kyleaj24 on 2020/10/24 03:00
I really like this game and have been playing for over a year but the ads get longer and longer so I have to move on!
Love game BUT
by cadCORKY on 2020/10/23 17:45
I love this game. It is a brain teaser but when stuck on the final word and use the free symbol, the last word disappears to quickly. I like to know that word.
Amazing app!

Love the calming background music too. Keep it up!

Does anyone know how to get more butterfly levels past 54
Wish it would stay on a level
by garyzager on 2020/09/28 16:54
I sure wish that the screen would remain unchanged when I finish a level so that I could see my good work. Ideally there would be a button to push that would then close out that level to send it to the next new level.
Sooo relaxing
by Cali Angel 2000 on 2020/09/27 21:23
I love this game it’s relaxing and beautiful i love the game
Very stimulating to the mind
by EJ-Niels on 2020/09/26 15:10
I love playing this game. It triggers a lot of thinking so it is not just a twitch or reflex game. It is also not a random luck game. There is always a solution! I would have given this game 5 stars, but I was unable to move my progress from my old Android phone to a new iPhone. Lost a LOT of progress, coins and time. Disappointing, but I’m playing through it again.
Bonus Wheel BS
by Billy Bob Jenkins 😉 on 2020/09/22 13:35
The bonus wheel is rigged. Every single time you get a spin on the bonus wheel it speeds up or slows down and/or spins extra or less to only land on the % off option. They do this because they want you to spend money and buy more coins of course!
Terrific Game Ruined by Political Ads
by Scruffydog101 on 2020/09/20 15:12
I really enjoyed playing this game to get my mind off the political turmoil of the day. Now you are forcing me to watch political ads. Will not be playing this game until after Election Day, if I return.
Changes
by WJPirritated on 2020/09/19 20:19
I believe I paid for this app so that I would not be subjected to ads. That worked until a couple of days ago when VERY LONG ads began to appear after each round. It is so irritating that I am considering removing the app from my iPad. Until the ads appeared, I would have given this 5 stars.
App behavior concern
by rosie come over on 2020/09/18 17:14
This is my favorite game, but it has started asking if Word Crossy can connect to the other devices in my network. I don’t like that.
dictionary
by Pianopris on 2020/09/17 18:34
This game does not accept bona fide words. what dictionary are you using? I kept a list of words that were not accepted ( they were not a part of the puzzle but they also weren’t credited-if a word doesn’t fit the puzzle the game play rule is that you are given a point for each valid word that wasn’t part of puzzle) I collected a very long list and then looked them up in several dictionaries including Webster’s and Oxford. They were all in at least 2 dictionaries!! Have lost any interest now - can the developers be that ignorant ??? hmmmm. Maybe English isn’t their native tongue☹️

Glitch
by Calar 26 on 2020/09/13 16:12
I absolutely love this game!!!!! I play it daily and look forward all week to the weekend challenges. My only serious peeve is that when I’m hot into the challenge, the app freezes and it’s SO frustrating!!!!!! I literally have to delete the app and start over. It allows me to retrieve my account and balances, but I lose access to the challenge. Today I’m sitting at #1 with 6 hrs to go, and poof. Gone. This happens probably every other week. Pleeeease fix it
Meh
by Lookie who on 2020/09/11 12:57
Game is good, ads are crap and one popping up after ever board is to much. Relax the ads or make them less invasive.
Disappointed

I’ve had this app and played for a couple of years. Not often but occasionally I have spent money on the game. After 2 years of spinning that rigged wheel, I’m really getting sick of it stopping on 1000 coins only to then change to the one next to it. I’ve never won coins, ever. If it’s gonna be totally rigged don’t have it at all. I’m incredibly annoyed after this time and time again.
Don’t be fooled

I have been playing this game for months now and finally got tired of seeing the same 4 ads between levels every single day. I paid to remove ads and now do NOT have access to videos for hints. The “watch a video” button has disappeared. This is not what I paid for. If anyone is listening, I would like this feature restored. Customer service said it would now show up only randomly now, which is not helpful. Why was this changed at all? Thanks for nothing! This was a fun game till I saw ads for Lily’s Garden for the 99th time. Please restore my access to hints. Sue
Game will Short change rewards
by gipsrewards on 2020/09/08 00:06
I do like this game. But each game has 18 levels—when you finish a game you get to collect rewards. The game will give you 2 selections to choose—collect or Double. But each time I select the DOUBLE it does not double your reward. So you play 18 levels for only 25 coins and it will not double it even though you choose this.
Too many LONG ads!

Too many LONG ads!
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. :-(
Not a fan of the latest updates
by Lady_MCM on 2020/01/06 15:16
Have played this game for years and have enjoyed the challenge of learning new words and completing the puzzle. The rewards came quickly which encouraged me to keep playing. The latest updates delay the rewards to the point the game has become boring. Instead of 25 points after accruing 30 words not in the puzzle, you must wait 18 LEVELS to gain 25 points. Not worth the time it takes. Also, those extra words? You no longer receive points for legitimate words not in the puzzle unless it is on some arbitrary list related to that specific level. A word that is not accepted on level 2435, for example, is acceptable on level 2436. It makes no sense and provides no help in vocabulary building. One thing that has not been fixed is the 50% off hints for one hour which only worked 1/2 the time and never on the daily rewards. It is possible that they moved the letters in the play location - where you choose the letters - closer together so if you just barely sweep by a letter while lining out a word, that letter is chosen, your word is misspelled and you lose the run on the 12 or 40 word count rewards. All of these issues are problems, but the biggest issues for me are the arbitrary rejection of legitimate words not included in the puzzle and having to play through 18 LEVELS for a measly 25 points. Not worth the time and effort and BORING. That’s my two cents.
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&#39;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&#39;s the point of logging in when all it does is show me what my friends scores are. Also there doesn&#39;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
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. 🙄
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.
💜 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.
Somewhat challenging
by apple annoying on 2020/11/18 23:27
Enjoy playing, hate the ads. Yes I know I can pay to eliminate. That’s not happening. Some are half minute long...really annoying. But the biggest annoyance just occurred: an ad completely in Spanish. Almost deleted game because of it! Update: Been playing for some time; am at level 6000+. As of yesterday, game loads &amp; then goes to home page. Have tried half dozen times, rebooted iPad,etc, same result. Reluctantly, am deleting. May load in future but am done with it now. Tried on different iPad. Still problematic. Did complete reset on both pads, thinking problems may be hardware. Same issues. These things have just been past couple days. Has there been an update? Appears so. Note letters are smaller. Plus ads have become intolerable, especially when playing in tournaments. Going to have to dump them from phone &amp; 2 iPads. P.S. reduced to 1 star. More update. Reloaded on older pad after deleting &amp; doing a reset (at level 5000+). Very, very slow for a few games. Now it has gone back to problem that caused deletion, game loads (takes forever) all the way to game start, then dumps me back to home page over and over. What&#39;s the deal?
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 &#39;calm&#39; to &#39;earth,&#39; colours, landscapes changing as you go, this game is fun and relaxing. If you can&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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!
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.
Needs improvement
by Grigsterdan on 2019/07/29 02:26
I’m on level 2994 &amp; I have encountered a thing or 2 or 3... Firstly, I’ve never once hit the 1000 coin mark on the bonus wheel and only twice (as of today) hit the 100 coin mark; the other prizes are minimal game tools. Secondly, when reaching extra word bonus points 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 or even the 25 which is automatic - or suppose to be. Lastly, valid words in the English dictionary are rejected too often for my taste. For example, the words ‘listen’, ‘enlist’ &amp; other practical words were recently rejected in my game. The app is updated automatically and my connection is great so it isn’t me. Otherwise, it’s a great app. I will continue to play regardless because I enjoy it as a pastime. It’s a little better than the others I’ve tried. The best aspect of this app, to me, is the weekly tournament. Love those!
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 &amp; challenging game. There are some problems that reduce enjoyment of the game and rob players of points &amp; 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 &amp; issues: 1. Stolen coins: Game took 50 coins &amp; 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 &amp; 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 &amp; 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 &amp; 3 aren’t fixed soon, I will be deleting the app and finding something less frustrating.
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!!!
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.
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&#39;m at home on Wi-Fi but when I want to get more lives by watching a video it says &#34;connect to the internet and try again&#34;. Right... I&#39;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&#39;ve earned the gold coins and they&#39;re ours? I&#39;m not paying a cent on this game and I&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;t know if it&#39;s because you don&#39;t get enough bonus words in a row or what but my meter fills after so many words and stays full. It doesn&#39;t give coins or reset like it&#39;s supposed to I&#39;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&#39;t get coins for bonus words which is a total ripoff. So meh good way to pass time but I wouldn&#39;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.
Okay game.
by Dumanyu on 2019/08/25 03:33
I have had lots of issues with this game. First and foremost are the tendency to allow certain words but disallow the same word if you add an S to the end. Both being valid words but one is not recognized. Stupid. Another recent development with this game is filling the Cat bank. This allows players to score and a fictional cat bank fills up and 12 hours later, you get 50 coins. But now, with one win, clearing a puzzle and getting 900+ point worth 1000 coins, the bank only fills to 50 and the other 950 coins are lost. What is the point of winning 1000 coins but only being awarded 50 and then having to wait 12 hours for them. Incredibly Stupid. And worst of all. A word is not allowed on one puzzle but is allowed on another. Just ran into this with the word ARSE. Not a word and then is a word. The consistency of this game leaves a great deal to be desired. Haven’t the developers ever heard of a dictionary? Try loading one in.
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.
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 &#34;X&#34; 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&#39;s one of the ones for the puzzle. The app doesn&#39;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&#39;m done with the greedy, self serving app developers. There&#39;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&#39;s been crickets ever since. Do yourself a favor and find any other app than this one!
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.
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 &amp; 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.
Finally a challenging word game
by not-a-lady-of-leisure on 2020/08/19 06:30
Yes, the ads are annoying (though being able to avoid them by not agreeing to watch an ad to double your score is a plus), and it did take MANY levels to start getting unusual (but valid) words. However, this is the only word game I have found that really challenges &#34;wordies&#34; in each of its games [Daily challenge, regular game, and Butterfly levels]. Kudos to the developers for a game that not only looks appealing but really does require thought, knowledge, and strategy. I deducted one star because the cost of removing ads is too high. I would willingly pay$2 or $3 for that chance, but not $5. Update: ads are out of control! One at the end of every game! And now there doesn&#39;t seem to be a way of removing them.
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 &amp; 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.
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&#39;re on) and the multi level (and longer) ads are really annoying. Dropping to 2 stars. It&#39;s fun to find the words in the puzzles but supremely frustrating that it doesn&#39;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&#39;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

Spin wheel award is rigged
by Soren446 on 2020/12/02 02:33
The spin the wheel award is very much rigged and nearly impossible to win anything other than a 50% off power up. It’s extremely obvious and gives no indication of probability to the user. A random gift box would be less irritating
Pop up ads
by watch who you let advertise on 2020/11/30 00:37
If you have Jane Closet as a pop up add I want to warn people who play this game not to purchase anything from. I ordered from them and once I selected place my order, my money was gone and the product was not what they advertised. What I mean is either I have to keep crappy product or spend more money to send them back than what the items were worth. They want me to send them to Korea but they were shipped to me from Ohio. I think you should not let businesses like this to advertise with you so removed your game from my phone.

Keeps Crashing
by Tiggersmommy on 2020/11/19 08:05
Glad I’m not the only one who is having problems since the latest update. Love this app when it’s working properly, not recently though.
I love Word Crossy
by Bobbie Queen on 2020/11/19 03:24
I love to guess these words and I don’t care about any coins or being the best. I just love this game. I’m totally addicted and it’s educational. If I want to know what a word means I just touch the first letter of the word and a dictionary pops up.
Update

Updated now I cannot open the game
by nicknameruleisdumb on 2020/11/19 01:50
After the last update, I cannot open the game. When I click on the icon, it acts like it is opening but then closes right away. Sometimes it lets me get to the game map but then closes.
The last update killed this game on my phone
by twd107 on 2020/11/19 01:17
I love this game... played almost every day and made it to level 620. The app now closes every time it’s opened after the most recent os update.
Somewhat challenging
by apple annoying on 2020/11/18 23:27
Enjoy playing, hate the ads. Yes I know I can pay to eliminate. That’s not happening. Some are half minute long...really annoying. But the biggest annoyance just occurred: an ad completely in Spanish. Almost deleted game because of it! Update: Been playing for some time; am at level 6000+. As of yesterday, game loads &amp; then goes to home page. Have tried half dozen times, rebooted iPad,etc, same result. Reluctantly, am deleting. May load in future but am done with it now. Tried on different iPad. Still problematic. Did complete reset on both pads, thinking problems may be hardware. Same issues. These things have just been past couple days. Has there been an update? Appears so. Note letters are smaller. Plus ads have become intolerable, especially when playing in tournaments. Going to have to dump them from phone &amp; 2 iPads. P.S. reduced to 1 star. More update. Reloaded on older pad after deleting &amp; doing a reset (at level 5000+). Very, very slow for a few games. Now it has gone back to problem that caused deletion, game loads (takes forever) all the way to game start, then dumps me back to home page over and over. What&#39;s the deal?
Help

Word Crossy
by frdrksn on 2020/11/18 14:35
Really like this game but your update 2 days ago has a PROBLEM——please fix!!!!!! Wow it’s been 3 days and it still totally shuts down when you try to use the app after this download sure wish you’d FIX this

Word Crossy
by 77JBoy on 2020/11/18 12:48
The word Crossy stoped working on my iPhone And I’m at level 1907 there’s no way to update the app so it seems like I need to delete the app and reinstall, that means I have to start all over. So poopy!! As soon as I open the app it crashes. So it gets one half star
Help!
by Jchadwe4 on 2020/11/18 05:22
Since the new update, every time I open the app, it shuts down after 3 seconds. How can I fix this? I’ve been playing for a long time, and I don’t want to lose my progress by deleting and re downloading. What can I do?
Please update!! There are bugs!
by Music guru L on 2020/11/18 03:21
I love this game and am on level 3000. Please push through an update that gets rid of bugs causing the app to crash every time I open it. Can’t play my favorite game!
App no longer working?
by CUTigress06 on 2020/11/18 03:16
I couldn’t find a way to contact the developers, so I’m hoping they somehow read this. Ever since the update 3 days ago, my app hasn’t worked. It will continually close whenever I try to get to my puzzle or anything. I tried un-installing and re-installing, but that didn’t help it.
Update
by mer1963 on 2020/11/18 02:54
I just updated the app and discovered the letters are now smaller. I don’t like the smaller letters and prefer the larger size. For some reason the looks like the only change. I don’t like it
small letters? why?
by Katieiiieidizzsns on 2020/11/18 02:42
i play this game everyday it’s very relaxing and i enjoy hence the 4 stars but the latest update that made the letters significantly smaller is really making it not as enjoyable. my speed and accuracy are now hinder bc for the past 4600 levels ive been accustomed to a certain size of letter and now it’s all small. it’s also kinda hard to see and makes the app look clunky. the size of letters beforehand was much better.
App keeps crashing!!

2.8.5 crashes
by peskymom on 2020/11/17 04:43
Your 2.8.5sdk update from 2 days ago causes the app to crash every time. I was well over 600 levels in and had to download your competitors app because word Crossy no longer works. Please fix!
Issues with Game
by Kristipdx on 2020/11/17 04:26
I typically LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this game, I’ve been playing it forever &amp; am at level 9,000 + (don’t judge lol) and now all of a sudden it’s not working. I thought maybe it was a weird glitch or needed an update. Nope. It’s been almost two days. I don’t want to have to start over. 😭
Letters too small/far apart since update
by TurnerUW on 2020/11/17 03:43
Ever since the update, the letters are much smaller, and thus they are spaced further apart. It’s much harder to play with one hand and I keep missing letters in the words I’m trying to spell. Make the letters the normal size!! No one asked for this update!
Wont stay open after latest update!!!
by Flipin funny and fun on 2020/11/17 03:32
Can’t play anymore after this latest update because the app won’t stay open☹️
Fun but frustrating
by Worthless or worse on 2020/11/17 02:37
The game is fun to play. But when I get to a certain level, it appears, the app just crashes every time I try to launch it. It may be that the update is causing these crashes. But I simply cannot play today. I can’t get in. I shut down my phone and relaunched. No improvement.
App closing
by One is curious on 2020/11/17 01:35
Is there no customer support? This app closes every time I open it! It’s so frustrating!

Won’t load - please look into this
by marva7 on 2020/11/16 16:57
I played this game every day and I loved it. I’m not sure what happened but now it won’t load. It might be because of the latest update. Please look into this. I only gave it one star due to the fact that there’s something wrong with the game.
Latest update is just poor
by mokayaker on 2020/11/16 15:52
I play this game a lot and enjoy the relaxing tones and fonts. I’d give it five stars but for the last update. Now, it crashes all the time.
Love the App - Issue With Latest Update
by TheConcertSwami on 2020/11/16 15:37
The Word Crossy app is great however the latest update downloaded yesterday, 11/15 is now causing the app to crash on my iPad Mini 5 (256 gb and is the latest generation). This is happening before and after the iOS update to 14.2.
Newest update seems to be problematic
by phatdaddy60 on 2020/11/16 15:14
I have been playing this game for a long time and never had a problem. After downloading this newest update, the game has repeatedly bounced me out. It’s unplayable. This is normally a 5-star game. Please fix.

Changed the font size

Problems
by kentmon on 2020/11/15 19:42
I really enjoy this game but recently have starting having problems. I am using an iPad with iOS 14.1. I am in the midrange of the 7600s for number of games. The app has started hanging when I complete a game. I get the coins added to the pot where the coins for buying hints are stored but I don’t get the coins for the extra words I found. I have to restart the app. Then sometimes the app just blows away on its own. This is disturbing. I also have just under 65,000 coins if that makes a difference.

Help from developers is awful
by AztekGod69 on 2020/11/14 15:23
Don’t delete this game or you’ll have to start all over, I was on an advanced level and I restore my device, now it says that I can’t restore my progress because I have no many devices linked to my Facebook account when I only got one device. :(
Mostly fun
by JJJJeebers on 2020/11/10 10:35
Overall a fun game. You’ll never get the coin jackpot on a free spin. Played over a year and yet to get more than 100 coins.
Why the changes?
by miss_behavin099 on 2020/10/28 22:28
I used to LOVE this game but now I can’t get the sound to turn off during the adds. I turned it off in settings but it only silences the game which is extremely frustrating.
Fun but quirky
by DevotedMom on 2020/10/26 00:28
Agree with other reviews that directions would be helpful, why do I have to sign in to FB to play the same game on multiple devices, etc. My first whine is why does the new game score keeper cover a word? WTH? Do the designers play the game? You can’t see how many squares it is until you score. So, if it’s the last word solved - LIKE THE BONUS WORD - and haven’t really been paying attention, you have to try and play a word you haven’t played to score to see the boxes. Idiots. My other criticism is why do some words - that are actual words - not count? For example why does the word “hips” count but not “hip?” Get a dictionary folks.

Very Good Word Game
by CrossBronx on 2020/10/24 20:13
One of the better ones but way too many ads for games. I paid not to have but changed phones and lost it. They did not honor it on my iPad either.
Ads are way too long!

I really like this game and have been playing for over a year but the ads get longer and longer so I have to move on!
Love game BUT

I love this game. It is a brain teaser but when stuck on the final word and use the free symbol, the last word disappears to quickly. I like to know that word.

Wish it would stay on a level
by garyzager on 2020/09/28 16:54
I sure wish that the screen would remain unchanged when I finish a level so that I could see my good work. Ideally there would be a button to push that would then close out that level to send it to the next new level.
Sooo relaxing

I love this game it’s relaxing and beautiful i love the game
Very stimulating to the mind
by EJ-Niels on 2020/09/26 15:10
I love playing this game. It triggers a lot of thinking so it is not just a twitch or reflex game. It is also not a random luck game. There is always a solution! I would have given this game 5 stars, but I was unable to move my progress from my old Android phone to a new iPhone. Lost a LOT of progress, coins and time. Disappointing, but I’m playing through it again.
Bonus Wheel BS
by Billy Bob Jenkins 😉 on 2020/09/22 13:35
The bonus wheel is rigged. Every single time you get a spin on the bonus wheel it speeds up or slows down and/or spins extra or less to only land on the % off option. They do this because they want you to spend money and buy more coins of course!
Terrific Game Ruined by Political Ads
by Scruffydog101 on 2020/09/20 15:12
I really enjoyed playing this game to get my mind off the political turmoil of the day. Now you are forcing me to watch political ads. Will not be playing this game until after Election Day, if I return.
Changes
by WJPirritated on 2020/09/19 20:19
I believe I paid for this app so that I would not be subjected to ads. That worked until a couple of days ago when VERY LONG ads began to appear after each round. It is so irritating that I am considering removing the app from my iPad. Until the ads appeared, I would have given this 5 stars.
App behavior concern
by rosie come over on 2020/09/18 17:14
This is my favorite game, but it has started asking if Word Crossy can connect to the other devices in my network. I don’t like that.
dictionary
by Pianopris on 2020/09/17 18:34
This game does not accept bona fide words. what dictionary are you using? I kept a list of words that were not accepted ( they were not a part of the puzzle but they also weren’t credited-if a word doesn’t fit the puzzle the game play rule is that you are given a point for each valid word that wasn’t part of puzzle) I collected a very long list and then looked them up in several dictionaries including Webster’s and Oxford. They were all in at least 2 dictionaries!! Have lost any interest now - can the developers be that ignorant ??? hmmmm. Maybe English isn’t their native tongue☹️

Glitch
by Calar 26 on 2020/09/13 16:12
I absolutely love this game!!!!! I play it daily and look forward all week to the weekend challenges. My only serious peeve is that when I’m hot into the challenge, the app freezes and it’s SO frustrating!!!!!! I literally have to delete the app and start over. It allows me to retrieve my account and balances, but I lose access to the challenge. Today I’m sitting at #1 with 6 hrs to go, and poof. Gone. This happens probably every other week. Pleeeease fix it
Meh
by Lookie who on 2020/09/11 12:57
Game is good, ads are crap and one popping up after ever board is to much. Relax the ads or make them less invasive.
Disappointed
by BribriRN2016 on 2020/09/10 08:23
I’ve had this app and played for a couple of years. Not often but occasionally I have spent money on the game. After 2 years of spinning that rigged wheel, I’m really getting sick of it stopping on 1000 coins only to then change to the one next to it. I’ve never won coins, ever. If it’s gonna be totally rigged don’t have it at all. I’m incredibly annoyed after this time and time again.
Don’t be fooled
by suel1212 on 2020/09/10 03:36
I have been playing this game for months now and finally got tired of seeing the same 4 ads between levels every single day. I paid to remove ads and now do NOT have access to videos for hints. The “watch a video” button has disappeared. This is not what I paid for. If anyone is listening, I would like this feature restored. Customer service said it would now show up only randomly now, which is not helpful. Why was this changed at all? Thanks for nothing! This was a fun game till I saw ads for Lily’s Garden for the 99th time. Please restore my access to hints. Sue
Game will Short change rewards
by gipsrewards on 2020/09/08 00:06
I do like this game. But each game has 18 levels—when you finish a game you get to collect rewards. The game will give you 2 selections to choose—collect or Double. But each time I select the DOUBLE it does not double your reward. So you play 18 levels for only 25 coins and it will not double it even though you choose this.
Too many LONG ads!
by Slamdunc99 on 2020/09/06 19:20
Too many LONG ads!
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. :-(
Not a fan of the latest updates
by Lady_MCM on 2020/01/06 15:16
Have played this game for years and have enjoyed the challenge of learning new words and completing the puzzle. The rewards came quickly which encouraged me to keep playing. The latest updates delay the rewards to the point the game has become boring. Instead of 25 points after accruing 30 words not in the puzzle, you must wait 18 LEVELS to gain 25 points. Not worth the time it takes. Also, those extra words? You no longer receive points for legitimate words not in the puzzle unless it is on some arbitrary list related to that specific level. A word that is not accepted on level 2435, for example, is acceptable on level 2436. It makes no sense and provides no help in vocabulary building. One thing that has not been fixed is the 50% off hints for one hour which only worked 1/2 the time and never on the daily rewards. It is possible that they moved the letters in the play location - where you choose the letters - closer together so if you just barely sweep by a letter while lining out a word, that letter is chosen, your word is misspelled and you lose the run on the 12 or 40 word count rewards. All of these issues are problems, but the biggest issues for me are the arbitrary rejection of legitimate words not included in the puzzle and having to play through 18 LEVELS for a measly 25 points. Not worth the time and effort and BORING. That’s my two cents.
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&#39;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&#39;s the point of logging in when all it does is show me what my friends scores are. Also there doesn&#39;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
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. 🙄
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.
💜 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.
Somewhat challenging
by apple annoying on 2020/11/18 23:27
Enjoy playing, hate the ads. Yes I know I can pay to eliminate. That’s not happening. Some are half minute long...really annoying. But the biggest annoyance just occurred: an ad completely in Spanish. Almost deleted game because of it! Update: Been playing for some time; am at level 6000+. As of yesterday, game loads &amp; then goes to home page. Have tried half dozen times, rebooted iPad,etc, same result. Reluctantly, am deleting. May load in future but am done with it now. Tried on different iPad. Still problematic. Did complete reset on both pads, thinking problems may be hardware. Same issues. These things have just been past couple days. Has there been an update? Appears so. Note letters are smaller. Plus ads have become intolerable, especially when playing in tournaments. Going to have to dump them from phone &amp; 2 iPads. P.S. reduced to 1 star. More update. Reloaded on older pad after deleting &amp; doing a reset (at level 5000+). Very, very slow for a few games. Now it has gone back to problem that caused deletion, game loads (takes forever) all the way to game start, then dumps me back to home page over and over. What&#39;s the deal?
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 &#39;calm&#39; to &#39;earth,&#39; colours, landscapes changing as you go, this game is fun and relaxing. If you can&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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!
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.
Needs improvement
by Grigsterdan on 2019/07/29 02:26
I’m on level 2994 &amp; I have encountered a thing or 2 or 3... Firstly, I’ve never once hit the 1000 coin mark on the bonus wheel and only twice (as of today) hit the 100 coin mark; the other prizes are minimal game tools. Secondly, when reaching extra word bonus points 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 or even the 25 which is automatic - or suppose to be. Lastly, valid words in the English dictionary are rejected too often for my taste. For example, the words ‘listen’, ‘enlist’ &amp; other practical words were recently rejected in my game. The app is updated automatically and my connection is great so it isn’t me. Otherwise, it’s a great app. I will continue to play regardless because I enjoy it as a pastime. It’s a little better than the others I’ve tried. The best aspect of this app, to me, is the weekly tournament. Love those!
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 &amp; challenging game. There are some problems that reduce enjoyment of the game and rob players of points &amp; 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 &amp; issues: 1. Stolen coins: Game took 50 coins &amp; 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 &amp; 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 &amp; 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 &amp; 3 aren’t fixed soon, I will be deleting the app and finding something less frustrating.
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!!!
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.
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&#39;m at home on Wi-Fi but when I want to get more lives by watching a video it says &#34;connect to the internet and try again&#34;. Right... I&#39;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&#39;ve earned the gold coins and they&#39;re ours? I&#39;m not paying a cent on this game and I&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;t know if it&#39;s because you don&#39;t get enough bonus words in a row or what but my meter fills after so many words and stays full. It doesn&#39;t give coins or reset like it&#39;s supposed to I&#39;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&#39;t get coins for bonus words which is a total ripoff. So meh good way to pass time but I wouldn&#39;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.
Okay game.

I have had lots of issues with this game. First and foremost are the tendency to allow certain words but disallow the same word if you add an S to the end. Both being valid words but one is not recognized. Stupid. Another recent development with this game is filling the Cat bank. This allows players to score and a fictional cat bank fills up and 12 hours later, you get 50 coins. But now, with one win, clearing a puzzle and getting 900+ point worth 1000 coins, the bank only fills to 50 and the other 950 coins are lost. What is the point of winning 1000 coins but only being awarded 50 and then having to wait 12 hours for them. Incredibly Stupid. And worst of all. A word is not allowed on one puzzle but is allowed on another. Just ran into this with the word ARSE. Not a word and then is a word. The consistency of this game leaves a great deal to be desired. Haven’t the developers ever heard of a dictionary? Try loading one in.
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.
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 &#34;X&#34; 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&#39;s one of the ones for the puzzle. The app doesn&#39;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&#39;m done with the greedy, self serving app developers. There&#39;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&#39;s been crickets ever since. Do yourself a favor and find any other app than this one!
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.
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 &amp; 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.
Finally a challenging word game
by not-a-lady-of-leisure on 2020/08/19 06:30
Yes, the ads are annoying (though being able to avoid them by not agreeing to watch an ad to double your score is a plus), and it did take MANY levels to start getting unusual (but valid) words. However, this is the only word game I have found that really challenges &#34;wordies&#34; in each of its games [Daily challenge, regular game, and Butterfly levels]. Kudos to the developers for a game that not only looks appealing but really does require thought, knowledge, and strategy. I deducted one star because the cost of removing ads is too high. I would willingly pay$2 or $3 for that chance, but not $5. Update: ads are out of control! One at the end of every game! And now there doesn&#39;t seem to be a way of removing them.
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 &amp; 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.
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&#39;re on) and the multi level (and longer) ads are really annoying. Dropping to 2 stars. It&#39;s fun to find the words in the puzzles but supremely frustrating that it doesn&#39;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&#39;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
