Too many ads
by luederchris on 2019/05/25 21:32
I love playing this game however there are way too many ads that take 30 seconds to get around. Some ads freeze the game and you have to close it and restart. I wish there was an ad free version- I’d actually buy it!
Obscure words
by Judy in Buda on 2019/05/25 02:23
I do a lot of reading...crucial I think to some of these puzzles but this game has me looking up the words on 20% of the games!!! And the words are pretty outdated or technical for the most part. Cheapest option for helps and clues is $19.99!!! I will delete and find something else!
Crashes/closes
by amaze2order on 2019/05/24 22:36
I play everyday, usually just before sleep. Overall enjoy the game very much. ( I love mental stimulation/ challenges) has a pretty significant downside though.... crashes/closes periodically. In particular in the middle of the advertising clips for earning coins. For the past 3-4 months have been unable to earn any extra coins by watching the advertisements do to this glitch. And even worse I am getting no feedback/ responses to the emails I send them in regards to this. Such a shame for an otherwise fun game. If these problems were resolved this would have been a 5 star rating. I have emailed via the in app link about the continuous problems, glitches, freezes and shut down issues that I have continuously experienced over the past multiple moths. And as of yet no one has concerned themselves enough to address the issues or even respond to me with any kind of explanation or customer curtesy call at all. Does anyone at the company even care for the users of their product at all? I've given a review addressing these concerns. I've gone out of my way to try and attempt to have my concerns addressed. To no avail. What else can be done to get a response from the owners, creators, managers of this app?

Great game but too many ads
by Jaz1129 on 2019/05/24 09:40
Absolutely love the game but contains way too many ads in between each level played. Beginning to get frustrated.
it helps me sleep
by meek meek j on 2019/05/24 06:07
i thought this was a great game. after playing for a while i see some words seems to be made up. there’s no rhyme or reason to the “bank” once the coins are reduced down from say, 48 to 7. i just got a huge bonus and it didnt even give it to me. it makes me use points to get clues and then the word turns out to be one that i already found. i mean, it’s definitely flawed but when im bored it keeps me busy.
After 3400 levels, I am quitting
by GG-SRQ on 2019/05/23 21:48
The game is OK but it infuriates me that there is no consistency with an English dictionary. For example, “Hip” is not a word, but “Hips” is. Just one of many. Other times a word is a word, and later the same word is not. There are some Spanish words that are included that aren’t English, but you have to know they are good. Finally, the tourney is crap. Don’t make me play against a fake opponent. Publish a standard you have to achieve at minimum to reach 50, 100, and 200 points, then let us play against it, or other real players as well.
Ads
by getyourpoopinagroup on 2019/05/23 18:32
It is so frustrating to have ads that constantly pop up! They also cause the app to crash on a frequent basis. Will be deleting. Get your poop in a group!
I love this game
by BettyBoopWynne on 2019/05/22 21:10
Even though scoring is a mystery to me. Now I’ve finished all levels. Boo hoo
WAS a really good word game.
by NaNaRosemont on 2019/05/22 19:14
This was a really fun good game, til it got upgraded. Now you have to play games (want to or not) or wait til they are finished. You cannot get coins so it’s very easy to get stuck in a game, unless you PAY to get coins. I’m very dissatisfied with these new upgrades. Bad move. Thinking about deleting it, since the fun is gone.
I am so angry
by Craefish rather n be ni on 2019/05/21 23:31
I play this game all the time and I love it but they just charged me $9.99 for coins that I never got AND that I never ordered. I wrote them and never heard back.
False Advertising
by CaliSweet77 on 2019/05/21 22:34
Advertised as a find the item or word in a picture. I almost deleted right away but decided to tryin hopes that it would be added as you increased in level. Shockingly no such luck. Deleted app...
Fun

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.
Hidden games???

Need to change review from great to so-so
by Ghilayne on 2019/05/18 20:52
Why the change in review? Because I am having difficulty with the game not recognizing when I use a correct word in a puzzle and end up having to PAY for hints to finish. This has happened twice today, most recently with “bier”. Even though I entered it several times the word registered as incorrect until I selected hint until it was filled in. Very disappointed in the product.

Don’t buy the extra
by Waste of time but fun on 2019/05/16 05:53
This game is great for word knowledge. But it has a huge flaw- I purchased extra points for $4.99 and since then my daily gift, 50% or more often, are the opportunity to buy more points etc. even when I get the spinning wheel I very rarely get the points. I get an opportunity to buy.
Crashes on start up and while trying to play.frustrating game to play.
by sassayfrassythegamingcat on 2019/05/16 05:21
When loading this game it will either crash on load up,when your trying to connect words or playing a video trying to get a hint.Nice game when and if it loads and stays loaded.Also,they give you 5 letters and 1 vowel.very trusting to come up with any words.you have to keep going around and just hope you finally get a word.I have since deleted this app due to the major frustrations trying to play.I gave up.it was no longer fun for me and a waste of time and effort to keep on playing.
Good game.
by Abo1176 on 2019/05/16 01:42
Enjoyable game. Some questions about what constitutes a valid word since some obvious ones like “hip” don’t seem to be on the list.
Inconsistencies are frustrating
by JToddM987654 on 2019/05/15 13:38
I've played this game a lot. Like a whole lot. It's my go to when I have a few minutes to kill. Overall I enjoy it, but there are inconsistencies that make it frustrating. With each round, you get a point for each word. If you get subsequent words right you get bonus points on a scale that increases one point for every word until you are getting six bonus points per word. If you enter a word that isn't in the dictionary for that game, you start back at the beginning to build up your bonus points. That's all good and five, but the dictionary isn't consistent from round to round. I was just working on a round where the word "inch" was not accepted, so my bonus was reset. Other common words are not in the game at all. "Hip" doesn't seem to exist but "hips" is. There are other things about the scoring that are weird. Their used to be a "mind stone" thing that wasn't explained but you were supposed to be arriving to earn them somehow for some reason. Like I said, overall it's a pleasant diversion, but it needs work.
Stupid pop-ups make it freeze
by FlyanR on 2019/05/15 03:49
I enjoy playing this game, but every time I open the app the stupid pop-up advertisement to purchase hints comes up and I can’t X out of it. It takes multiple closing and re-opening the app before I am able to play the game, after going through other pop-ups. Frustrating.
😒
by Jcawsome3 on 2019/05/14 22:54
Curious to me how I’ve been playing this game for over a year and I have NEVER gotten the extra points on the spinning wheel. Annoying. Must be rigged.
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.
Too many long ads
by White1234 on 2019/05/14 02:53
Between each quick game is a 30 ad for another game so I deleted it. I enjoyed the game but couldn’t handle the disruption. There is also too much fluff going on with the scoring. I just want to play with no ads and receive a score instead of all the gathering of special objects for points.

What now?
by G-mail-man on 2019/05/13 19:45
I've been playing since last fall, (its mid April 2019 now) and I've reached level 4314. No more puzzles available. It just says coming soon. It's said that for a long time. When will there be more?? So, I'm done all the puzzles and am ”forced” to try the butterfly quest thing. I hate it. The regular puzzles are way better. I hope you ”guys” could release more soon. I can't believe I did 4314 of them and want more. Please. More puzzles please!!! All right! More levels added. Thank you!!!
Ridiculous amount of ads
by ipako63 on 2019/05/13 14:52
This is a very fun game that really makes you think. That being said it is SUPER aggravating that every time you clear a puzzle you have to watch some ad for another game. I understand advertising is how these games exist but really? I have stopped playing several fun and entertaining games because of this.
Great game

Was fun but now it’s not
by Mz R&G on 2019/05/13 00:35
I have been playing this game for awhile now and I have noticed that I have redone the same puzzles over and over again -plus I had over 1000 coins and just watched them disappear without even using a coin-
Not like other games
by Paltadzhyan on 2019/05/12 20:29
This App is not like other games. It improves spelling and concentration. Thanks for changing the Winter version to Spring appearance. I highly recommend, if you’re looking to quality hobby.
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.
The wheel daily reward
by ni!(na@m3 on 2019/05/10 16:48
Just take the daily wheel reward out. Never stops on coins. Not really a reward.
Freezes
by lsdfghjjkkklllllo on 2019/05/10 15:02
Freezes a lot because there is a pop up window every 3 seconds.
Ads play with the sound on
by Ihatenicknames12345 on 2019/05/10 12:33
It’s a fun game, but sometimes the ads play with the sound on, even though I have my phone muted. This can be highly uncool, depending on the circumstances.
Loads too slowly!
by wellsbmw on 2019/05/10 02:52
If you ever have to leave the have for even a few seconds, the game will shutdown and you have to ‘reload’. I don’t know why this game takes so much longer ... first a bar indicating its loading, then you have to ALWAYS click through a couple screens, then the title ‘word Crossy’ pops up and you have to wait a s Finally you get to the game. All that is pretty annoying. And the scoring varies - sometimes a score of 40 equals 8 points, other times its 9 or 10 points?! Not the best game out there. They have a lot of sluggishness, too many screens to actually get to the game and poor consistency in the point system.
Frozen
by aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa30 on 2019/05/09 15:57
App has been working great. Not sure what's going on but the last few weeks I've tried to play the game and it just keeps freezing.
No longer tells you how many coins it costs for a hint
by dab cat101 on 2019/05/08 16:04
I’ve been playing this game for a while now and it’s fine to pass the time. I like the app and enjoy the brain exercise. I like the beautiful pictures that get revealed at each level. More animation on those would be even better. Cons for me: With this latest update 2.7.0, you are no longer able to see how many coins you will be spending when you choose to take a hint. I wish I didn’t have to get the bonus word to move on, but it doesn’t really bother me, especially since I get extra coins for guessing it. Seems like the roulette wheel for the daily gift lands far too often on a 50% off a hint but maybe that’s just me. It’s not a gift if I have to spend to receive it. The vocabulary in the app is lacking, especially when it comes to words that may be considered to be slang words but are part of the every day vernacular. I understand there is a vocabulary update in the latest version however. Hate that coins are left on the table when my Maneki Neko cat reaches 50. 4 stars. Worth a try.
New levels please
by DisappointedInDallas on 2019/05/08 05:48
I keep completing every level and have no more levels to continue play (happened 5-6 times). It’s been weeks since new levels have been added that I can play. If not for this, I would rate 5 stars.
Loved it until....
by AlbinoBarf on 2019/05/07 22:51
Until I paid to get rid of ads. Once I did that I got rid of the ad’s between games (Which I wanted), but now I have no option to watch an advertisement durning a game to get extra coins... Lost all interest in playing the game now....

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.
Sketchy advertisers
by JayCreedmain on 2019/05/06 00:41
Was a big fan of the game but the advertisements associated with the game are pretty sketchy. Ordered outlet night lights advertised in between games and was ripped off for over $46.00 when 6 of the 8 lights simply didn’t work. When tried to contact the company called G-gboom, was offered refunds from 10-30 percent but refused to allow me to return the 6 that didn’t work for full refund like their website offers. Response from game email seemed unconcerned. Still no response to inquiries about it. Very disappointed in the breach of trust! May still play the game but warning to all... don’t trust the products advertised on the game.
Use of “made up” words .....
by 51Godgirl on 2019/05/05 22:26
That aren’t in our dictionary is the most annoying! Next is the use of archaic words, then not allowing words that are in our dictionary! The only reason it gets 2stars is for the low cost of hints! Drop the tournament it’s obviously fake. I’m done final straw not allowing pluralizations and past tenses! Uninstalled

by Fairy pop on 2019/05/04 16:27
Too much junk to get through when opening the game. Why all the "crashes" when trying to get my bonus points? I agree.....way too many crashes!!!!
Careful with controls. Unfair practice
by Zothepro on 2019/05/04 13:58
Careful not to touch control buttons! Game was fine until a competition starts. The controls don’t behave the same as before. It allowed you to change your mind if accidentally pressed. Now it automatically uses up your points. Please clarify this rule and make it equitable for all.
Adult adds
by ecorn79 on 2019/05/04 00:45
I had to delete this app/game from my 10year old son’s phone because adult sexual ads were popping up for an app where you get to ‘choose your story’ and the video add was of a man and a woman having sex! You couldn’t see private parts but there was NO question about what they were doing! This is NOT OK!

I’ve had this app for a couple years, I was on level 1207, when I tried to open the app today it wouldn’t open so I deleted the app thinking I’d be able to download again and the levels I passed would reappear but no I lost all. Bummed.

Great game
by oldmandb on 2019/05/02 13:42
Passes the time. Would like some consistency with which words are considered words and which aren’t. One puzzle has ‘NERD’ as a word, the next you get penalized for it not being a word. Happens way too often. But as I said, it passes the time. Where is level 4315?
No updates
by Dramaginny on 2019/05/02 13:24
Been stuck for weeks with no update. As of today just going to delete the game. No point of keeping it when it’s obviously not going to get any updates any time soon. Found another word game to play.
Prize Wheel
by Lana Cat Meow on 2019/05/02 06:52
The prize wheel for the daily gift is fixed so that it NEVER lands on coins. I’m on level 664 and when I get the wheel typically I’ll receive half off for X amount of time. I’ve bought coins in the past and understand all of this is to encourage users to make in app purchases.. But throw a bone out every once in a while! Maybe that would keep me and others from finding a different game all together.
Fun game.
by AndieP2 on 2019/05/01 21:59
I love this game.
Update this game faster!
by Oklahoma Teacher on 2019/05/01 16:15
I really like this game, but I’ve been at a standstill for a few weeks now. I only play the daily challenge and then leave this game to play Sudoku or some other game because you haven’t added new levels. It’s no fun to keep playing exactly the same Word Crossy game over and over!
Stop the Butterflies!
by Jill-cherry on 2019/05/01 03:46
I enjoyed the game, but when I came bd k after several weeks there was all these butterflies spelling everything for me. It kind of defeats the purpose of playing the game.
Rigged!
by Rex Golden on 2019/04/30 18:58
The game itself is okay, but my problem is with the daily bonus. Every few days your daily bonus is a free spin of a prize wheel where you can win free coins. You will NEVER win the coins. Ever. I have probably spun it 100 times at this point, and never once hit the coins, even the smaller amounts. You always get an hour of discounted hints, or occasionally a free hint. Why even bother if you can’t ever win?

I have reached the last level (4314) & get “coming soon.” In events it also says “coming soon” but it’s said that for months. I rated 3 stars because I like the game but can’t rate it higher since there are no levels left. Please tell me what coming soon means-I’m about ready to delete the game & hope to find another favorite.

Used to be 5 stars
by Reds fins rule on 2019/04/28 00:14
This used to be my go to word game. There were ads that came up every 3-5 games. Now there’s an ad between every. single. game. It makes it almost unplayable. I now play every 4-5 days for a few games. Used to play 5-10 games daily.
Love WordCrossy
by Bella4ever886 on 2019/04/27 20:35
Love wordcrossy!! Lots of fun 😊...plus this is a one ☝️ of a kind type of game 🤩🤩🤩 because it is also very educational, helpful, & just very useful for all of us!!! Cuz Word Crossy enables you to broaden your vocabulary hence giving you access to being able to feed your brain’s knowledge power so to speak!! Since this game helps to teach you all dorts of different words that includes all the different kinds of words from verbs, nouns, adjectives to even pronouns!!?!! Idk if anyone else actually cares about their vocabulary knowledge, but I am always wanting to keep on learning and learning which includes my vocabulary power so to speak!! Cuz I am not one wholikes to use really big and fancy words that only our Congress man and Senators and lawyers and doctors are always using in their everyday communication with each other!! But I would like to be!! Hence why I totes love word crossy🤩

Couldn’t make the heckin word GOD. Jesus Christ! Is my savior
Fun game but lacking
by Oswidc on 2019/04/27 15:58
Most people already complain that the bonus word is actually required... Then... It's not a bonus word. Also.. Got a new phone... Lost all my progress... Got the level 700 and it's gone. Very annoying.
I repeat NOT fair!
by Bonnie Kaye on 2019/04/27 12:32
So you type a word & it doesn’t accept it. Then you buy coins & the very word that you previously typed is the answer!

It’s ok.
Good game
by DJ Joe coney Island on 2019/04/26 21:48
Good game just too many ads
Nice way to pass time
by Brainchild68 on 2019/04/26 03:21
I wish the extras weren’t so expensive. The cheaper choices disappear after they are bought, then the prices climb exorbitantly high for just a little game, plus the point awarded are just a tease
Sync
by Ragid1111 on 2019/04/25 22:25
Why give an option to “sync” if the coins, bonuses, and level won’t go with you when you change phones? Disappointed in that feature, but otherwise a fun game.
Losing interest
by EKB from Oh on 2019/04/25 21:48
Losing interest in this game. Used to be able to compete against others in your group. You were able to see their scores and their progression and games. This option is no longer available and it makes it less interesting to play that’s why I only gave it three stars. Bring back the competition of the game.
Fun game
by tben30 on 2019/04/25 11:50
Great way to amuse yourself on a rainy day. Just enough challenge.
Jihad
by caasI/bocaJ on 2019/04/24 22:54
Really???? Jihad is a word in this puzzle??? God is NEVER a word in this puzzle, but yet jihad is????? Are you anti American?????
Game is good but fouled by ads
by mindani3 on 2019/04/24 20:28
WAY too many ads in this game. And they’re long. Sometimes I have to close app and reopen to get around the ads. Don’t be fooled by the few ads in early levels. They multiply as you advance.
Needs new levels
by happytexasbling on 2019/04/24 19:34
When will new levels be added? I pass through them quickly and then wait a while for new ones.
Ads ruin the game
by hummer450 on 2019/04/24 17:05
I understand the need for ads but to many times the ads just keep running with no way to close them. Also you can mark sound off but ads will still play and loudly. Why should i have to turn my phone sound off because the app cant mute ad sounds as well.
Crash
by AnnSH on 2019/04/24 15:11
I like this game but it crashes at the end of each level! Then I have to reload it. Updating did nothing. Annoying enough to uninstall it. It even crashes when I try to email them through the app. I have tried posting this info twice with no response. Thus, the one star (I started at 4 stars).
Daily Bonus almost never gives coins
by CeeShaw34 on 2019/04/24 11:36
I love this game, but developers are stingy with Daily Bonus wheel spin, almost NEVER gives and coins!
Move the help features
by LoveMyShep on 2019/04/24 04:59
I like the quests, events, butterfly games and tournaments. But, I would like to see more variety in the words and I really wish the buttons for the lightning bolt, lightbulb, and pointer finger were not so close to the letters because I accidentally hit those and use up my coins, which is especially annoying for the lightning bolt since it’s 280 coins.

Ok game to play but....

I hate that you have your phone and game are on mute, yet the ads play aloud.
WAS good, really good, until
by Dad*two on 2019/04/23 00:38
WHY do I have to endure a pop up for my piggy bank EVERY round? Stop bullying me into buying coins. Not enough bonuses for people at higher levels(3300+). No incentives to continue playing but lots of pop ups TO BUY coins.
Star tournament
by adderider on 2019/04/22 19:20
I really love this game. Enjoy trying to figure out the words etc but I won the star challenge and should have been awarded 1000 coins but received zero. I have emailed the developer 3x and haven’t received a reply.
Continuous ads
by karebear2222 on 2019/04/22 01:01
Can’t even play the game. Constant ads and other games popping up. DELETED. That was a little much!
Stuck on level 4313
by dhdhhsbs on 2019/04/22 00:24
The game has stopped at level 4313... I’ve waited patiently for a fix. It’s been 3 weeks and not fix in sight. Loved the game until this happened.
Love the game
by 61970 on 2019/04/21 18:10
I love the game , but I haven’t been able to play. Ran out of words . A month later I’m still waiting for more words.
Adds interfere too often and crashes lots!
by Coopone on 2019/04/21 13:33
It’s a fun game but crashes frequently. Future updates will fix this probably but then you’re plagued with ads playing so often it becomes a waste of time.
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. :-(
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!
Crashes, lost progress, strange scoring....
by AngelPixel on 2018/03/28 03:39
Game started getting stuck loading at 1% then freezes and crashes. Can't even open it half the time... Repetitive words, made up words, ads after every single level...made the mistake of paying to remove them because at first the game is really fun and addictive. But once you get to higher levels and like ten in a row have the same words repeated just kinda makes it annoying after a while. Anyways there is a lot of potential to be a good game it just needs some fine tuning. The reward system needs work as well. It is very confusing right now, what are the flowers for? The gold rewards seem kind of skimpy as well. Also you lose your bonus streak even if you enter in a legit word and sometimes that legit word gets you the bonus.....I can understand losing your bonus for entering in something that is just gobbledegook but why not extra points for real words? Annnnnd then you can go to the next level and enter in that SAME word from that last puzzle and it accepts it?! So convoluted. Also after the game stopped opening I uninstalled it and reinstalled it to see if that would resolve the issue. I was also logged into Facebook at the time might I add. When I reinstalled the game and logged back in I had lost all my progress....what's the point of logging in when all it does is show me what my friends scores are. Also there doesn't seem to be game center support either... Wish I could get a refund.
Preferred the previous update
by Nice child on 2018/02/04 16:57
This update I do not like. It’s like the reversed in progress because normally updates are better but this one is like they went back like 10 steps. I can say I have noticed less ads. The music was so relaxing and now it’s a little more upbeat. The music is a large portion as to why played the game and now I really don’t care for it. They had spa like music, but like I said it’s a little more upbeat than usual. The app is so extra now. I like cut to the paste and now it does extra stuff when you found a word, they changed the whole layout, as I said I preferred the other layout way better- like the overall layout. At the end of the game when you could easily press X they make you wait for the flower to fully circle around and it is frustrating. Basically I played the game for relaxing purposes and now it doesn’t even do that anymore because they put in special effects which delays time has annoyed me. I don’t care for the path level up hung either. At one point you could just slide and it had relaxing picture of different elements and of course they took that away! I play less now.
Good Start, Needs Improvement
by Emannick on 2018/02/12 19:13
Overall I enjoy the game, but there are a few sore spots that need to be addressed; primarily with the words that it accepts/ does not accept. Depending on the level, the same word will or will not be accepted as an answer. If its acceptable on one level I should be able to input it on another level, even if its only as a bonus word. The issue gets compounded when putting in a word that is not accepted breaks your combo! How can I know ahead of time that the word wont work for that level and avoid losing the points? I frequently guess correctly spelled english words that simply aren’t allowed on that level and then later its a required word, where is the consistency? Why can I put in ‘Mauls’ but not ‘Maul’ in the same level? Just update the word banks and make any words that are real, but not required for the level, as bonus words so it wont break my combo score. Also, it would be nice if we could check what bonus words we’ve already gotten for the level. So like I said, fun but needs some work to be less frustrating
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. 🙄
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.
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.
💜 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!!!!
Fun and relaxing
by ekelks44 on 2018/09/11 05:18
Spinning letters as if in a bingo bowl to find the word and various shorter words within it, tying each letter to another as you work it out, the letters appearing on a rack above the circle, as if it were another real-world board game, getting rewarded with flower petals and bonus coins as you climb your way from 'calm' to 'earth,' colours, landscapes changing as you go, this game is fun and relaxing. If you can't guess the word, hints are available, but just take a breather. You may find what you need after a short break. Use the crossword itself as you fill it in for clues too. I haven't spent money on clues, have just been rewarded them. You can play bonus levels just for that too or to become more familiar with the game. You might have come across a word in a new level already if you've already done it in a bonus round. I did spend money to remove ads, all at once. Not much money and certainly a more relaxing game.
Very fun and relaxing
by terpland on 2018/04/17 18:50
I play this game with my dad all the time and it is very fun. It really does pass the time and it helps your brain. The game is challenging too, finding words. I enjoy challenges. Sometimes, i even learn new words from that game. It’s easy to get coins. (All you do is watch commercials then you’ll gain coins.) there are so many levels, too! Like, 1,700+ I can’t wait to finish them all! I give this 5 stars. And other people out there who don’t like it because you can’t find the words and you rate it just one star. Wow. It is supposed to be challenging. And if you do not like the music, turn it off. That’s why there is a mute button. Don’t get frustrated just because you cannot pass a level and then rate it one star. It is a good game. You guys also delete the app just because of ads. Just wait until it is over, X out, and continue on. I know it is annoying but stop complaining for such dumb reasons.
Terrible customer service
by Aangeldm01 on 2018/05/19 12:24
I played a game that had the same word twice. I had to use over 500 points, that I paid for, to get past the game because of the duplicate word. I wrote an email to the developer letting them know what happened and asked them to credit me the points. What would the harm have been to the developer to credit some points. However that didn’t happen and they didn’t even respond to my email with an apology. I sent several emails. There have been several kinks in the game where I have had to use my points to advance to the next game. I stated in my email that I would continue to rate the game low and guess what they did. They locked me into a 5 star rating where I’m not able to rate any lower than 5 stars through the game. Can you believe that. That is unethical. I’m completely shocked that a company would do something like this. I’m in the process of filing a complaint meanwhile I wonder what is the next shady thing this company does!! Three days in a row I have received the flowers and points for the daily awakening because it freezes up. I’m sure I won’t receive a response from that email either.
The ads are ridiculous!
by nbombzy on 2018/07/15 03:10
I like the game it is great for passing time but a lot of things bug me and almost make me want to stop playing which I’m sure I will at some point soon. First, there is literally an ad after every level and the levels really take one to five minutes for the most part. Thirty second ads every couple of minutes is over kill and ridiculous. Also, if you close out real quick to answer a text or something and go back in seconds later, you have to watch a 5-15 second ad for that. Secondly, you have to have coins to get hints and the amount of coins it cost versus how much they give for completing tasks makes it impossible. Thirdly, my husband and I both play and we have noticed that sometimes you have to put in the same word multiple times to have it accept it and a lot of the levels are the same. I like the concept of the game, but all those things just really frustrate me. I hope they change it soon or I’ll just delete it and find something else.
Fun but has some hang-ups
by Nevsollee on 2018/07/01 11:13
I’ve spent a while playing this game, and while I’ve enjoyed it more than other word games I’ve tried, it still has some issues I think need to be addressed. First, ad glitches. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried to watch an ad to get coins used in the game, only to have it get stuck on a black screen. You end up having to restart the app and you never get those coins. Second, inconsistency in the words accepted. In all puzzles some words that are not part of the crossword are still accepted as “bonus” words. But it seems to vary from puzzle to puzzle which are accepted. For example: one puzzle might accept “TIN” as a bonus word while another might not. It’s frustrating when you get to the bonus combo mode and you lose it on a word that should have been accepted universally. All that said I’m not usually a big fan of word games but this one has grabbed me. I’m still going to play for now, and hope for some fixes!
Enjoyable & challenging with scoring & time issues &
by Dwell! on 2018/07/05 16:46
Word Crossy is a fun & challenging game. There are some problems that reduce enjoyment of the game and rob players of points & time. Like other players have mentioned, the flower/coin point system is vague. Please resolve these problems. I’ really like this game; but, am considering uninstalling it. Here are a few examples of glitches & issues: 1. Stolen coins: Game took 50 coins & gave me nothing but red, swirling sparkles when Lightbulb Tool was selected. No hint was displayed; so, I did not get what I paid for. 2. Full bank won’t empty: Missing green Free-Empty option button: Green free-empty option button does not always appear in full cat bank option box. So, I could not empty bank & coins earned in next game were lost since they couldn’t fit. 3. NEXT game button after cat bank fills up: Sometimes the “NEXT” game button appears in error after the cat bank fills up instead of the special box with the options for free-empty or purchase. So, future coins are lost since full bank couldn’t be emptied. 4. Ads (too many, too long): 30-second advertisement after each game is excessive. No, I won’t buy the ad-free game option with real money because game cannot be trusted with my play money/game coins due to the glitches I described above. 5. Lonnng scoring transitions between games. Slow, flying flowers & coins counting in addition to long ads after each game ... too much time wasted.

Love wordcrossy!! Lots of fun 😊...plus this is a one ☝️ of a kind type of game 🤩🤩🤩 because it is also very educational, helpful, & just very useful for all of us!!! Cuz Word Crossy enables you to broaden your vocabulary hence giving you access to being able to feed your brain’s knowledge power so to speak!! Since this game helps to teach you all dorts of different words that includes all the different kinds of words from verbs, nouns, adjectives to even pronouns!!?!! Idk if anyone else actually cares about their vocabulary knowledge, but I am always wanting to keep on learning and learning which includes my vocabulary power so to speak!! Cuz I am not one wholikes to use really big and fancy words that only our Congress man and Senators and lawyers and doctors are always using in their everyday communication with each other!! But I would like to be!! Hence why I totes love word crossy🤩
Could be a great game
by hialeahnarmi on 2018/08/06 16:50
The ads are unbelievable. You literally get an add after every game. It slows down the game and makes it annoying because you can’t even mute every commercial/advertisement so if you are in public and an ad pops up, you have to lower the volume. My other, and even more annoying complaint, is that you can lose a streak because the game doesn’t accept a legitimate word. You might be able to use a word in 1 round to only find out that the same word is not accepted in another round. So even though you know the word has worked before, it might be rejected later. This in turn breaks your streak if you have been getting multiple words in a row. On top of that, certain words won’t be accepted like countries or cities for most of the games but then later on you have to use the Geneva. Like what the heck?!? Why would I even consider using Geneva if you have kept cities, states, countries, etc in every other instance? This game could have been so much better but as is I can only give it a 2
It’s enjoyable, but has some issues
by Kittycam on 2018/04/13 12:09
First of all, the ads.. never have I played a game where there is an ad that plays after EVERY single level, most of which are completed in just a few seconds. Isn’t this game just an exact copy of that one cookie word game anyways? Last issue I have is that the grammar is far from perfect.. First there are tons of perfectly acceptable English words that if entered are deemed incorrect (for example, “ton” was not considered a word, plus the word needed for the puzzle was “tun”.. really now? Come on game creators), however the biggest issue is some words required to solve the puzzle were not even actual words. The game is fun, don’t get me wrong, but the ads are far too frequent and therefore I find myself not wanting to play nearly as much as I would if they were less. I understand that for a game to be free there needs to be ads, but this one isn’t good enough to pay to have them removed, or to literally spend as much time watching ads as I do playing the actual game.
Fun Game
by Honey1126 on 2018/03/08 08:29
It’s a fun game, but frustrating at times, because 1) I feel like they use words that are so obscure they almost seem made up. It does force me to look up these words and increase my vocabulary, but at the same time frustrating if I’m trying to solve and don’t know what that final word is. 2) every time I try to use the daily spin (whether it’s on my iPhone or iPad) an ad will pop up advertising a coin sale and when I “X” out of that, the wheel is now frozen and I can’t get my daily spin in. Which brings me to 3) This “50% off” on the prize wheel is dumb and when I can manage to click on the wheel before the ad pops up (very rare by the way), it seems that 90% of the time it will land on this, even though it clearly should have stopped before that or it was going fast enough that it should have passed it. Because of these issues, I’m hesitant to buy any coins. If issues #2 & 3 aren’t fixed soon, I will be deleting the app and finding something less frustrating.
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!
Skillful Crossy!
by gbarnes. on 2018/07/01 02:06
I absolutely love this game and would have given it a 5 all day long. However, the game rewards you to hook it up to your Facebook page which I never do but, against my better judgement I did and as soon as I did, all of my inventory was taken, except 5 pieces each. I had at least 100 each maybe more! I also had an abundance of coins. Again against my better judgment I bought many different piggy bank packages which, I never do and I mean never! This is actually the first game I have ever purchased things for that shows you how much I liked the game! After this happened, I sent the developers an email and they have yet to respond to me. I’m not sure how much longer I’m going to keep this game because I’m not happy that the developers did think my complaint was important enough to respond to. Good Luck to all you gamers and my best advice to you is DO NOT HOOK YOUR GAME UP TO FACEBOOK BECAUSE SOMEONE MIGHT STEAL ALL YOUR HARD EARNED INVENTORY!!!
Random????
by Burtonious on 2019/05/20 19:33
I will start off by saying that I plan on removing this game from my phone unless someone will explain the logic behind the decisions of the the game at higher levels. I understand that the game must increase in difficulty, but when the same decision produces different outcomes, one starts to consider that trying to understand is senseless. This was an interesting and challenging game until to get to the point where it seems there is no logic or strategy behind the randomness. In the butterfly challenges sometimes a word will remove one butterfly and in another attempt it will only remove one. Of course failed attempts leaves you with two options quit and return the next day when you have more attempts or pay for extra attempts. It also appears that you have to play the challenge so many times that it will finally allow to to move past the level. This returns me to my previous statement where the designers force you to pay for extra attempts. This was a fun game, now it’s just an exercise in futility.
Not the worst game

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!
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.
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.
On Wi-Fi
by Nyala10 on 2018/05/25 19:56
So I'm at home on Wi-Fi but when I want to get more lives by watching a video it says "connect to the internet and try again". Right... I'm connected ok? Then I have similar issues that everyone else seems to have: 1) no rules or explanations of rewards 2) funky non-English words 3) ads between every level 4) what the heck are the flowers for? 5) why do we have to pay to open the piggy bank when we've earned the gold coins and they're ours? I'm not paying a cent on this game and I'd advise others not to either. 6) words are accepted on one level but not another 7) have you noticed all the reviews are January through early April. What happened to the rest of the year? The reviews are from years past it seems but after march it scrolls back to January. I think the developer has lost interest and doesn't pay attention to our reviews to fix the issues.
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.
Piggy bank full but can’t redeem/empty
by JayGee too on 2018/07/24 04:27
I’m at level 493. I just filled the piggybank again but it won’t let me retrieve the coins AND it won’t add any more. So I’m playing and completing puzzles and not getting coins. There is what appears to be a timer at the bottom of the button used to retrieve the piggybank coins. My timer says 18:23:19. Does that mean I can’t get my coins for 18 hours plus. If so I might as well quit playing until tomorrow. I’ve had some of the other problems mentioned as well. I saw somewhere that once you got 10,000 flowers there was some reward. I have over 12,000 and still waiting to get whatever reward. I too have noticed that valid words do not score. I know that 2 letter words don’t count but I’ve had many 4-5 letter words that don’t score anything. I did discover that if one taps the “Bonus” to the left of the flower at the top it will reveal the bonus words found and the number of bonus words available. That leads me to believe that not all dictionary words are valid as bonus words. One just gets so many per puzzle I guess. I too would like to see a more complete description of the point system and also what makes a combo a great combo versus an outstanding combo etc. Lastly, I’ve discovered many slang words are valid and I didn’t expect that.
I Love this game But
by MommaHaneline on 2019/05/06 02:07
So I will start out by saying I love this game and I’m totally addicted. I’m 500 levels in so I’ll give you my full opinion. There is an ad after every round which was annoying at first when the rounds are really easy, but they get a little harder and take a little longer to complete so the adds stopped bothering me pretty quickly. I don’t understand the scoring on the Butterfly card rounds... which is a bit annoying because I think I could complete the harder levels easier if I understood how you can get more than one butterfly at a time instead of it just seeming random. Some of the words are a little out there but I love the dictionary feature. So as soon as I guess a word that I don’t know what it means I can click the Aa button and it tells you the definition. I like that because word games are supposed to help you expand your vocabulary. The biggest thing that still irritates me about the game though is that when I saw the add for the game while playing another game, the word puzzle in the add is nowhere to be found in the actual game. Which is kind of messed up on advertising’s side. Like come on.... Overall... I am addicted and I do like the game.
Needs Some Fixing
by Yeah, You Know on 2018/03/23 01:38
After almost every round you will have to watch an ad, if not after every round. This is very annoying, and makes the game pale in comparison to similar games with less obtrusive advertising. Also, the bonus word should not be mandatory. It’s called a bonus for a reason. I also put ton in as a word, but apparently that’s not the correct spelling, despite the fact it is. In fact, there are many times you will spell a word but they want it spelled in some European way. Finally, there have been ones when I’ve put in word after word that just acts as a bonus instead of actually being in the puzzle. Which is just annoying. Actually, I have one more complaint which is the finger tracking on the game is abysmal. So many times I have traced over certain letters but they won’t connect. I’ve had the same problem on my tablet and my father’s phone.
Argh
by Fetid pair of donkey kidneys on 2018/02/27 19:48
I have so many frustrations with this game and most are about words. 1. Words that aren’t words. I know there are words that I don’t know yet, and that’s okay, but when you look up a bizarre word and can’t find a definition, it’s crap. 2. Bonus words. I’m not talking about the stand along word you get coins for. When you get a word that’s not on the board, they count it as a bonus word. Whether they count terms or not varies widely and is hugely inconsistent. Being punished for getting a legitimate word that was in a previous board is immensely frustrating. 3. Word choice. I get that it’s meant to get harder, and that’s fine, but the words they choose sometimes are awful in context. There will be rounds when everything you put in is counted off as bonus and you can’t get a darn thing on the board because they skipped over so many good words to focus on bizarre crap. I’ve had rounds with 20 bonus words when I’ve had to look up words because they chose a poor selection. I have a good vocabulary, so when I’ve tried everything normal and am on to being punished for trying “nary”, it’s crap. I’m on level 640-ish and it’s utterly ridiculous. All of this points back to money. In the game setup it’s obvious they’re trying to set it up in such a way that you feel confident and then just use a hint on that one word.
New Update Confusion
by Acandies on 2018/09/20 03:10
For some reason my hidden talent in life is making words out of any assortment of letters so I love games like this. Before the update I could fly through levels but if I got stuck on one word (usually some old usage or British pronunciation word as some have mentioned before) I could just spend some of the massive coin total that I have accrued over the course of 900+ levels and figure it out after one or two letters. Now with the latest update there is literally zero usage for the coins! Makes no sense. Now you have to use one of there 3 hint features which you can only slowly collect via a daily bonus by logging on once a day. I get that’s how you guys make your money and stay relevant but as someone who will never spend money on such a simple game it is quite irksome. Miss the good ol days of Text Twist.
Incomplete
by FightingTheDark on 2018/02/19 06:29
As someone who enjoys words and vocabulary games, I was excited to get this. However the dictionary this game uses is both incomplete and inconsistent. On some levels the crossword will have a word (eg. pope) AND the plural of the same word (eg. popes). However on other levels it does not recognize plurals of words, not even as bonus words. And since the scoring system gives you bonuses for consecutive crosswords and bonus words found, it’s quite frustrating to have a high consecutive word count and then make the plural of a word and have it break the chain because the dictionary doesn’t recognize it. (Eg. bite/bites). Also. In one level it recognized the word “not”. But not the word “ton”. It DID however recognize the word “tun” which actually is a real word. But come on. Ruin my word streak for “ton”? These are real examples from within the first 20 levels of the game. After which I deleted the app.
Rip off
by ianmagary on 2018/01/07 19:26
I paid for no advertising and the latest update of this app is ridden with stupid pop up adds for in app purchases, social media connection and coins and other silly unneeded and very annoying pop ups. I now have to "X" out of multiple layers of BS, self serving ads the developer wants to throw out there to get to the actual puzzle. Their dictionary acumen is horrible too. Over 50% of the time when you put a legitimate, correctly spelled word out there in hopes it's one of the ones for the puzzle. The app doesn't even recognize, nor give you credit for finding a word that fit the letters, yet was not in the puzzle. Needless to say, I'm done with the greedy, self serving app developers. There's much better games out there and ways to spend my time. I will seek refund from the developer first, then Apple if no resolution. I emailed the developer 2 weeks ago and it's been crickets ever since. Do yourself a favor and find any other app than this one!
Uses old English?
by Haunted Spit on 2018/07/07 17:07
I enjoy this game but spend half of my game time in disbelief, searching for a dictionary definition of words I have never heard of. Many words used in this game are from old English or British use (?). Such as “deb”, “loo”, “pooh”, etc. And many I have never heard or seen used in a sentence, such as “rewin”. Also, I notice the first words I find are pretty common, such as “sour” but it won’t be used in the puzzle. Instead it is collected in a “gift box” as a bonus word. If you collect enough of these, you are awarded coins. It seems the developer could’ve put these words in the puzzle but failed to do so and the gift box words are a fix to that problem. As other reviews have mentioned, many times the words used in the puzzle are singular and also plural forms of a word which becomes stale and not very challenging (e.g. “her” and “hers”).
It's alright
by K.C.87 on 2018/01/13 03:23
Super fun way to pass time.. the ads are annoying but for $ you can get rid of them. One bad point aside from it not taking words that aren't on the crossword as bonus words like it should. When you get so many bonus words the meter fills up so you get coins, BUT I don't know if it's because you don't get enough bonus words in a row or what but my meter fills after so many words and stays full. It doesn't give coins or reset like it's supposed to I've deleted and re installed the app too many times to count to try to fix it. But once I reach level like 32 I don't get coins for bonus words which is a total ripoff. So meh good way to pass time but I wouldn't spend any actual money on it
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.
It could be better
by Olivoial on 2018/07/28 23:02
All in all I’ve enjoyed the game. It froze on me so I’m going to delete it because the screen has faded to black the past 2 times I’ve opened the app. I’ve played for the past few weeks and it’s been great to pass time. I even got the family involved a few times which was nice. I like the daily rewards etc... and the whole set up. My dislikes: sometimes it doesn’t take the word the first time you enter it to later find out it’s the same word. There are tons of ads, that aren’t versatile - just the same ads. I do like that you can win coins by watching them. My last dislike is because the words sometimes don’t make sense, or they’re really similar like: hike & hikes. Minor corrects could make this game great.
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.
Only good to pass a little time.
by CJ.D. on 2018/05/24 19:30
Tap the watch an Add for extra coins coin box and nothing happens other than the box just goes away. Complete the Daily Word Challenge to receive 25 coins and the Tap to receive screen freezes (while music continues to play) so you can not receive your coins. The only way to continue to play is to go Home and restart App thus losing the 25 DWC coins. Many times words to be found are not spelled properly or are actually not real words at all. A lot of trial & error guessing and waste of coins. Most times you enter a word and it will not register-UNTIL, at games end and after you spend coins to provide a letter. Game coins won go into a piggy bank that you can not retrieve but once every 12 hours then, you are only given a total of 50 coins of all the coins you have won-UNLESS, you pay to receive all the coins.
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.
Could be so much better
by BobRobApex on 2018/04/15 17:10
Update: I like some of the improvements to ways to get coins and the new power ups but still missing very vanilla words at each level (kills the streaks you're on) and the multi level (and longer) ads are really annoying. Dropping to 2 stars. It's fun to find the words in the puzzles but supremely frustrating that it doesn't recognize relatively common words. One puzzle I got credit for ERA and EAR but not ARE. Other times HUES is a word but HUED isn't. Needs to have lots more recognized words and be consistent from puzzle to puzzle. I also think you should get a bonus if you get all the words without making any mistakes. Guess I can start adding words here that the game should count as good...level 1032-micron; 1078-shire, hires, heirs; another level a couple before didn’t take are or ear but did take era; 1083-togs, tugs, gush, hugs, guts; 1434-gavel, ravel
Doesn’t support across devices; ads don’t respect muting
by NannylouG on 2018/04/24 12:20
The game itself is ok. Nothing addictive but it passes the time. When my iPad needs charged and I play on my laptop or iPhone, the status level doesn’t transfer. UGH! The ads are very annoying because: 1) they are after EVERY level, 2) they are redundant (the same ads over and over) 3) they often play music even when the game has been muted (don’t play when you’re supposed to be doing something else!!!) I realize the intent is to get me to pay to remove ads but I actually like to see other games on occasion. Plus I won’t pay if the game isn’t cross compatible or addicting. I expect in a week I will be bored and delete it. UPDATE: Needs some instructions and guidelines regarding: 1) Scoring. How does that work? 2) I still haven’t figured out what the coins and flowers are for. 3) I can’t tell from the icons what each “help” item is. When I clicked on one to find out, I consumed it. 4) There are a LOT of valid words in the standard scrabble dictionary which are not recognized by the puzzle or bonus. It’s ok if they’re not in the puzzle but they should give bonus. 5) it seems to go through instability crashes occasionally.
Mostly fun and engaging, but maddeningly inconsistent.
by rwt1138 on 2018/06/23 18:45
There are a lot of fun and challenging puzzles, and for the most part I find it an entertaining challenge, but the developers really need to tighten up their dictionary. Words that are required to complete some puzzles won’t even register as words in others. Since the game awards bonus points for streaks, it can be extremely annoying to have one broken because you entered a word that was required in the previous puzzle. In addition, it should recognize simple words. The puzzle I’m currently on has rejected dot, ton, not, duo, don, all simple words and all of which are required in other puzzles. Meanwhile, it ignores some obscure words but has puzzles requiring lenis, secondary, and other extremely obscure words. Fix the dictionary issue and make it consistent, and this would get more stars from me.
Fun game to play when you’re bored, but has some issues.
by hburns11 on 2018/01/13 16:29
Fun game to play when you’re bored, but has some issues. The object is to get as many words as you can in a row, to get the most points, but if you miss one, you won’t be able to get as many points. The problem is that it won’t accept many of the words that I enter, that are definitely real words. If it’s not on the crossword, then it should be a bonus word, but some are entirely rejected so that your correct words streak is ended and you’ll get significantly less points for the level. For instance, it didn’t accept “mom,” but it did accept “moms.” Other words it didn’t always accept include: rut, rot, rat, tar, hot, hat, and many others. These should not count against you. Also the ads are really annoying, and their ‘special offers’ for coins and to be ad-free are crazily priced.
Crashes/closes
by amaze2order on 2019/05/24 22:36
I play everyday, usually just before sleep. Overall enjoy the game very much. ( I love mental stimulation/ challenges) has a pretty significant downside though.... crashes/closes periodically. In particular in the middle of the advertising clips for earning coins. For the past 3-4 months have been unable to earn any extra coins by watching the advertisements do to this glitch. And even worse I am getting no feedback/ responses to the emails I send them in regards to this. Such a shame for an otherwise fun game. If these problems were resolved this would have been a 5 star rating. I have emailed via the in app link about the continuous problems, glitches, freezes and shut down issues that I have continuously experienced over the past multiple moths. And as of yet no one has concerned themselves enough to address the issues or even respond to me with any kind of explanation or customer curtesy call at all. Does anyone at the company even care for the users of their product at all? I've given a review addressing these concerns. I've gone out of my way to try and attempt to have my concerns addressed. To no avail. What else can be done to get a response from the owners, creators, managers of this app?
Needs instructions!
by this is questionable on 2018/08/08 15:47
Ditto to all the comments about confusing scoring and no instructions. Fun to play, but frustrating because there is no clue about what is happening except making words. I find it annoying to have filled my piggy bank with game coins and then tap the piggy bank icon to get a message that it is full, get them for free...with no way to get them! ( don’t know what to do with them anyway). Needs some work, but enjoyable mindless way to pass time. Thanks for the reply, BUT... yes, there is a countdown on the piggybank... BUT, once it fills it CAN NOT be emptied immediately, ONLY once every 12 hours!!! That discourages me from playing for very long when I can’t claim the coins. So when the bank is full, I simply stop play until I can empty the bank in 12 hours. Sad

Too many ads
by luederchris on 2019/05/25 21:32
I love playing this game however there are way too many ads that take 30 seconds to get around. Some ads freeze the game and you have to close it and restart. I wish there was an ad free version- I’d actually buy it!
Obscure words
by Judy in Buda on 2019/05/25 02:23
I do a lot of reading...crucial I think to some of these puzzles but this game has me looking up the words on 20% of the games!!! And the words are pretty outdated or technical for the most part. Cheapest option for helps and clues is $19.99!!! I will delete and find something else!

In particular in the middle of the advertising clips for earning coins. For the past 3-4 months have been unable to earn any extra coins by watching the advertisements do to this glitch. And even worse I am getting no feedback/ responses to the emails I send them in regards to this. Such a shame for an otherwise fun game. If these problems were resolved this would have been a 5 star rating. I have emailed via the in app link about the continuous problems, glitches, freezes and shut down issues that I have continuously experienced over the past multiple moths. And as of yet no one has concerned themselves enough to address the issues or even respond to me with any kind of explanation or customer curtesy call at all. Does anyone at the company even care for the users of their product at all? I've given a review addressing these concerns. I've gone out of my way to try and attempt to have my concerns addressed. To no avail. What else can be done to get a response from the owners, creators, managers of this app?

Great game but too many ads
by Jaz1129 on 2019/05/24 09:40
Absolutely love the game but contains way too many ads in between each level played. Beginning to get frustrated.
it helps me sleep
by meek meek j on 2019/05/24 06:07
i thought this was a great game. after playing for a while i see some words seems to be made up. there’s no rhyme or reason to the “bank” once the coins are reduced down from say, 48 to 7. i just got a huge bonus and it didnt even give it to me. it makes me use points to get clues and then the word turns out to be one that i already found. i mean, it’s definitely flawed but when im bored it keeps me busy.
After 3400 levels, I am quitting
by GG-SRQ on 2019/05/23 21:48
The game is OK but it infuriates me that there is no consistency with an English dictionary. For example, “Hip” is not a word, but “Hips” is. Just one of many. Other times a word is a word, and later the same word is not. There are some Spanish words that are included that aren’t English, but you have to know they are good. Finally, the tourney is crap. Don’t make me play against a fake opponent. Publish a standard you have to achieve at minimum to reach 50, 100, and 200 points, then let us play against it, or other real players as well.
Ads
by getyourpoopinagroup on 2019/05/23 18:32
It is so frustrating to have ads that constantly pop up! They also cause the app to crash on a frequent basis. Will be deleting. Get your poop in a group!
I love this game
by BettyBoopWynne on 2019/05/22 21:10
Even though scoring is a mystery to me. Now I’ve finished all levels. Boo hoo
WAS a really good word game.
by NaNaRosemont on 2019/05/22 19:14
This was a really fun good game, til it got upgraded. Now you have to play games (want to or not) or wait til they are finished. You cannot get coins so it’s very easy to get stuck in a game, unless you PAY to get coins. I’m very dissatisfied with these new upgrades. Bad move. Thinking about deleting it, since the fun is gone.
I am so angry
by Craefish rather n be ni on 2019/05/21 23:31
I play this game all the time and I love it but they just charged me $9.99 for coins that I never got AND that I never ordered. I wrote them and never heard back.
False Advertising
by CaliSweet77 on 2019/05/21 22:34
Advertised as a find the item or word in a picture. I almost deleted right away but decided to tryin hopes that it would be added as you increased in level. Shockingly no such luck. Deleted app...

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.

Need to change review from great to so-so
by Ghilayne on 2019/05/18 20:52
Why the change in review? Because I am having difficulty with the game not recognizing when I use a correct word in a puzzle and end up having to PAY for hints to finish. This has happened twice today, most recently with “bier”. Even though I entered it several times the word registered as incorrect until I selected hint until it was filled in. Very disappointed in the product.

Don’t buy the extra
by Waste of time but fun on 2019/05/16 05:53
This game is great for word knowledge. But it has a huge flaw- I purchased extra points for $4.99 and since then my daily gift, 50% or more often, are the opportunity to buy more points etc. even when I get the spinning wheel I very rarely get the points. I get an opportunity to buy.
Crashes on start up and while trying to play.frustrating game to play.
by sassayfrassythegamingcat on 2019/05/16 05:21
When loading this game it will either crash on load up,when your trying to connect words or playing a video trying to get a hint.Nice game when and if it loads and stays loaded.Also,they give you 5 letters and 1 vowel.very trusting to come up with any words.you have to keep going around and just hope you finally get a word.I have since deleted this app due to the major frustrations trying to play.I gave up.it was no longer fun for me and a waste of time and effort to keep on playing.
Good game.
by Abo1176 on 2019/05/16 01:42
Enjoyable game. Some questions about what constitutes a valid word since some obvious ones like “hip” don’t seem to be on the list.
Inconsistencies are frustrating
by JToddM987654 on 2019/05/15 13:38
I've played this game a lot. Like a whole lot. It's my go to when I have a few minutes to kill. Overall I enjoy it, but there are inconsistencies that make it frustrating. With each round, you get a point for each word. If you get subsequent words right you get bonus points on a scale that increases one point for every word until you are getting six bonus points per word. If you enter a word that isn't in the dictionary for that game, you start back at the beginning to build up your bonus points. That's all good and five, but the dictionary isn't consistent from round to round. I was just working on a round where the word "inch" was not accepted, so my bonus was reset. Other common words are not in the game at all. "Hip" doesn't seem to exist but "hips" is. There are other things about the scoring that are weird. Their used to be a "mind stone" thing that wasn't explained but you were supposed to be arriving to earn them somehow for some reason. Like I said, overall it's a pleasant diversion, but it needs work.
Stupid pop-ups make it freeze
by FlyanR on 2019/05/15 03:49
I enjoy playing this game, but every time I open the app the stupid pop-up advertisement to purchase hints comes up and I can’t X out of it. It takes multiple closing and re-opening the app before I am able to play the game, after going through other pop-ups. Frustrating.
😒
by Jcawsome3 on 2019/05/14 22:54
Curious to me how I’ve been playing this game for over a year and I have NEVER gotten the extra points on the spinning wheel. Annoying. Must be rigged.
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.
Too many long ads
by White1234 on 2019/05/14 02:53
Between each quick game is a 30 ad for another game so I deleted it. I enjoyed the game but couldn’t handle the disruption. There is also too much fluff going on with the scoring. I just want to play with no ads and receive a score instead of all the gathering of special objects for points.

What now?
by G-mail-man on 2019/05/13 19:45
I've been playing since last fall, (its mid April 2019 now) and I've reached level 4314. No more puzzles available. It just says coming soon. It's said that for a long time. When will there be more?? So, I'm done all the puzzles and am ”forced” to try the butterfly quest thing. I hate it. The regular puzzles are way better. I hope you ”guys” could release more soon. I can't believe I did 4314 of them and want more. Please. More puzzles please!!! All right! More levels added. Thank you!!!
Ridiculous amount of ads
by ipako63 on 2019/05/13 14:52
This is a very fun game that really makes you think. That being said it is SUPER aggravating that every time you clear a puzzle you have to watch some ad for another game. I understand advertising is how these games exist but really? I have stopped playing several fun and entertaining games because of this.

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.
The wheel daily reward
by ni!(na@m3 on 2019/05/10 16:48

Freezes

Ads play with the sound on
by Ihatenicknames12345 on 2019/05/10 12:33
It’s a fun game, but sometimes the ads play with the sound on, even though I have my phone muted. This can be highly uncool, depending on the circumstances.
Loads too slowly!
by wellsbmw on 2019/05/10 02:52
If you ever have to leave the have for even a few seconds, the game will shutdown and you have to ‘reload’. I don’t know why this game takes so much longer ... first a bar indicating its loading, then you have to ALWAYS click through a couple screens, then the title ‘word Crossy’ pops up and you have to wait a s Finally you get to the game. All that is pretty annoying. And the scoring varies - sometimes a score of 40 equals 8 points, other times its 9 or 10 points?! Not the best game out there. They have a lot of sluggishness, too many screens to actually get to the game and poor consistency in the point system.
Frozen
by aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa30 on 2019/05/09 15:57

No longer tells you how many coins it costs for a hint
by dab cat101 on 2019/05/08 16:04
I’ve been playing this game for a while now and it’s fine to pass the time. I like the app and enjoy the brain exercise. I like the beautiful pictures that get revealed at each level. More animation on those would be even better. Cons for me: With this latest update 2.7.0, you are no longer able to see how many coins you will be spending when you choose to take a hint. I wish I didn’t have to get the bonus word to move on, but it doesn’t really bother me, especially since I get extra coins for guessing it. Seems like the roulette wheel for the daily gift lands far too often on a 50% off a hint but maybe that’s just me. It’s not a gift if I have to spend to receive it. The vocabulary in the app is lacking, especially when it comes to words that may be considered to be slang words but are part of the every day vernacular. I understand there is a vocabulary update in the latest version however. Hate that coins are left on the table when my Maneki Neko cat reaches 50. 4 stars. Worth a try.
New levels please
by DisappointedInDallas on 2019/05/08 05:48
I keep completing every level and have no more levels to continue play (happened 5-6 times). It’s been weeks since new levels have been added that I can play. If not for this, I would rate 5 stars.
Loved it until....
by AlbinoBarf on 2019/05/07 22:51
Until I paid to get rid of ads. Once I did that I got rid of the ad’s between games (Which I wanted), but now I have no option to watch an advertisement durning a game to get extra coins... Lost all interest in playing the game now....

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.
Sketchy advertisers
by JayCreedmain on 2019/05/06 00:41
Was a big fan of the game but the advertisements associated with the game are pretty sketchy. Ordered outlet night lights advertised in between games and was ripped off for over $46.00 when 6 of the 8 lights simply didn’t work. When tried to contact the company called G-gboom, was offered refunds from 10-30 percent but refused to allow me to return the 6 that didn’t work for full refund like their website offers. Response from game email seemed unconcerned. Still no response to inquiries about it. Very disappointed in the breach of trust! May still play the game but warning to all... don’t trust the products advertised on the game.
Use of “made up” words .....
by 51Godgirl on 2019/05/05 22:26
That aren’t in our dictionary is the most annoying! Next is the use of archaic words, then not allowing words that are in our dictionary! The only reason it gets 2stars is for the low cost of hints! Drop the tournament it’s obviously fake. I’m done final straw not allowing pluralizations and past tenses! Uninstalled

Too much junk to get through when opening the game. Why all the "crashes" when trying to get my bonus points? I agree.....way too many crashes!!!!
Careful with controls. Unfair practice
by Zothepro on 2019/05/04 13:58
Careful not to touch control buttons! Game was fine until a competition starts. The controls don’t behave the same as before. It allowed you to change your mind if accidentally pressed. Now it automatically uses up your points. Please clarify this rule and make it equitable for all.
Adult adds
by ecorn79 on 2019/05/04 00:45
I had to delete this app/game from my 10year old son’s phone because adult sexual ads were popping up for an app where you get to ‘choose your story’ and the video add was of a man and a woman having sex! You couldn’t see private parts but there was NO question about what they were doing! This is NOT OK!

by oldmandb on 2019/05/02 13:42
Passes the time. Would like some consistency with which words are considered words and which aren’t. One puzzle has ‘NERD’ as a word, the next you get penalized for it not being a word. Happens way too often. But as I said, it passes the time. Where is level 4315?
No updates
by Dramaginny on 2019/05/02 13:24
Been stuck for weeks with no update. As of today just going to delete the game. No point of keeping it when it’s obviously not going to get any updates any time soon. Found another word game to play.
Prize Wheel
by Lana Cat Meow on 2019/05/02 06:52
The prize wheel for the daily gift is fixed so that it NEVER lands on coins. I’m on level 664 and when I get the wheel typically I’ll receive half off for X amount of time. I’ve bought coins in the past and understand all of this is to encourage users to make in app purchases.. But throw a bone out every once in a while! Maybe that would keep me and others from finding a different game all together.
Fun game.

by Oklahoma Teacher on 2019/05/01 16:15
I really like this game, but I’ve been at a standstill for a few weeks now. I only play the daily challenge and then leave this game to play Sudoku or some other game because you haven’t added new levels. It’s no fun to keep playing exactly the same Word Crossy game over and over!
Stop the Butterflies!

Rigged!
by Rex Golden on 2019/04/30 18:58
The game itself is okay, but my problem is with the daily bonus. Every few days your daily bonus is a free spin of a prize wheel where you can win free coins. You will NEVER win the coins. Ever. I have probably spun it 100 times at this point, and never once hit the coins, even the smaller amounts. You always get an hour of discounted hints, or occasionally a free hint. Why even bother if you can’t ever win?

Please tell me what coming soon means-I’m about ready to delete the game & hope to find another favorite.

This used to be my go to word game. There were ads that came up every 3-5 games. Now there’s an ad between every. single. game. It makes it almost unplayable. I now play every 4-5 days for a few games. Used to play 5-10 games daily.
Love WordCrossy
by Bella4ever886 on 2019/04/27 20:35
Love wordcrossy!! Lots of fun 😊...plus this is a one ☝️ of a kind type of game 🤩🤩🤩 because it is also very educational, helpful, & just very useful for all of us!!! Cuz Word Crossy enables you to broaden your vocabulary hence giving you access to being able to feed your brain’s knowledge power so to speak!! Since this game helps to teach you all dorts of different words that includes all the different kinds of words from verbs, nouns, adjectives to even pronouns!!?!! Idk if anyone else actually cares about their vocabulary knowledge, but I am always wanting to keep on learning and learning which includes my vocabulary power so to speak!! Cuz I am not one wholikes to use really big and fancy words that only our Congress man and Senators and lawyers and doctors are always using in their everyday communication with each other!! But I would like to be!! Hence why I totes love word crossy🤩

Sync
by Ragid1111 on 2019/04/25 22:25
Why give an option to “sync” if the coins, bonuses, and level won’t go with you when you change phones? Disappointed in that feature, but otherwise a fun game.
Losing interest
by EKB from Oh on 2019/04/25 21:48
Losing interest in this game. Used to be able to compete against others in your group. You were able to see their scores and their progression and games. This option is no longer available and it makes it less interesting to play that’s why I only gave it three stars. Bring back the competition of the game.

by mindani3 on 2019/04/24 20:28
WAY too many ads in this game. And they’re long. Sometimes I have to close app and reopen to get around the ads. Don’t be fooled by the few ads in early levels. They multiply as you advance.

I understand the need for ads but to many times the ads just keep running with no way to close them. Also you can mark sound off but ads will still play and loudly. Why should i have to turn my phone sound off because the app cant mute ad sounds as well.
Crash
by AnnSH on 2019/04/24 15:11
I like this game but it crashes at the end of each level! Then I have to reload it. Updating did nothing. Annoying enough to uninstall it. It even crashes when I try to email them through the app. I have tried posting this info twice with no response. Thus, the one star (I started at 4 stars).
Daily Bonus almost never gives coins
by CeeShaw34 on 2019/04/24 11:36
I love this game, but developers are stingy with Daily Bonus wheel spin, almost NEVER gives and coins!
Move the help features
by LoveMyShep on 2019/04/24 04:59
I like the quests, events, butterfly games and tournaments. But, I would like to see more variety in the words and I really wish the buttons for the lightning bolt, lightbulb, and pointer finger were not so close to the letters because I accidentally hit those and use up my coins, which is especially annoying for the lightning bolt since it’s 280 coins.

Ok game to play but....
by SwanseaPunkRock on 2019/04/23 02:31
I hate that you have your phone and game are on mute, yet the ads play aloud.
WAS good, really good, until
by Dad*two on 2019/04/23 00:38
WHY do I have to endure a pop up for my piggy bank EVERY round? Stop bullying me into buying coins. Not enough bonuses for people at higher levels(3300+). No incentives to continue playing but lots of pop ups TO BUY coins.
Star tournament
by adderider on 2019/04/22 19:20
I really love this game. Enjoy trying to figure out the words etc but I won the star challenge and should have been awarded 1000 coins but received zero. I have emailed the developer 3x and haven’t received a reply.
Continuous ads
by karebear2222 on 2019/04/22 01:01
Can’t even play the game. Constant ads and other games popping up. DELETED. That was a little much!
Stuck on level 4313
by dhdhhsbs on 2019/04/22 00:24
The game has stopped at level 4313... I’ve waited patiently for a fix. It’s been 3 weeks and not fix in sight. Loved the game until this happened.
Love the game
by 61970 on 2019/04/21 18:10
I love the game , but I haven’t been able to play. Ran out of words . A month later I’m still waiting for more words.
Adds interfere too often and crashes lots!
by Coopone on 2019/04/21 13:33
It’s a fun game but crashes frequently. Future updates will fix this probably but then you’re plagued with ads playing so often it becomes a waste of time.
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. :-(
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!
Crashes, lost progress, strange scoring....
by AngelPixel on 2018/03/28 03:39
Game started getting stuck loading at 1% then freezes and crashes. Can't even open it half the time... Repetitive words, made up words, ads after every single level...made the mistake of paying to remove them because at first the game is really fun and addictive. But once you get to higher levels and like ten in a row have the same words repeated just kinda makes it annoying after a while. Anyways there is a lot of potential to be a good game it just needs some fine tuning. The reward system needs work as well. It is very confusing right now, what are the flowers for? The gold rewards seem kind of skimpy as well. Also you lose your bonus streak even if you enter in a legit word and sometimes that legit word gets you the bonus.....I can understand losing your bonus for entering in something that is just gobbledegook but why not extra points for real words? Annnnnd then you can go to the next level and enter in that SAME word from that last puzzle and it accepts it?! So convoluted. Also after the game stopped opening I uninstalled it and reinstalled it to see if that would resolve the issue. I was also logged into Facebook at the time might I add. When I reinstalled the game and logged back in I had lost all my progress....what's the point of logging in when all it does is show me what my friends scores are. Also there doesn't seem to be game center support either... Wish I could get a refund.
Preferred the previous update
by Nice child on 2018/02/04 16:57
This update I do not like. It’s like the reversed in progress because normally updates are better but this one is like they went back like 10 steps. I can say I have noticed less ads. The music was so relaxing and now it’s a little more upbeat. The music is a large portion as to why played the game and now I really don’t care for it. They had spa like music, but like I said it’s a little more upbeat than usual. The app is so extra now. I like cut to the paste and now it does extra stuff when you found a word, they changed the whole layout, as I said I preferred the other layout way better- like the overall layout. At the end of the game when you could easily press X they make you wait for the flower to fully circle around and it is frustrating. Basically I played the game for relaxing purposes and now it doesn’t even do that anymore because they put in special effects which delays time has annoyed me. I don’t care for the path level up hung either. At one point you could just slide and it had relaxing picture of different elements and of course they took that away! I play less now.
Good Start, Needs Improvement
by Emannick on 2018/02/12 19:13
Overall I enjoy the game, but there are a few sore spots that need to be addressed; primarily with the words that it accepts/ does not accept. Depending on the level, the same word will or will not be accepted as an answer. If its acceptable on one level I should be able to input it on another level, even if its only as a bonus word. The issue gets compounded when putting in a word that is not accepted breaks your combo! How can I know ahead of time that the word wont work for that level and avoid losing the points? I frequently guess correctly spelled english words that simply aren’t allowed on that level and then later its a required word, where is the consistency? Why can I put in ‘Mauls’ but not ‘Maul’ in the same level? Just update the word banks and make any words that are real, but not required for the level, as bonus words so it wont break my combo score. Also, it would be nice if we could check what bonus words we’ve already gotten for the level. So like I said, fun but needs some work to be less frustrating
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. 🙄
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.
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.
💜 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!!!!
Fun and relaxing
by ekelks44 on 2018/09/11 05:18
Spinning letters as if in a bingo bowl to find the word and various shorter words within it, tying each letter to another as you work it out, the letters appearing on a rack above the circle, as if it were another real-world board game, getting rewarded with flower petals and bonus coins as you climb your way from 'calm' to 'earth,' colours, landscapes changing as you go, this game is fun and relaxing. If you can't guess the word, hints are available, but just take a breather. You may find what you need after a short break. Use the crossword itself as you fill it in for clues too. I haven't spent money on clues, have just been rewarded them. You can play bonus levels just for that too or to become more familiar with the game. You might have come across a word in a new level already if you've already done it in a bonus round. I did spend money to remove ads, all at once. Not much money and certainly a more relaxing game.
Very fun and relaxing
by terpland on 2018/04/17 18:50
I play this game with my dad all the time and it is very fun. It really does pass the time and it helps your brain. The game is challenging too, finding words. I enjoy challenges. Sometimes, i even learn new words from that game. It’s easy to get coins. (All you do is watch commercials then you’ll gain coins.) there are so many levels, too! Like, 1,700+ I can’t wait to finish them all! I give this 5 stars. And other people out there who don’t like it because you can’t find the words and you rate it just one star. Wow. It is supposed to be challenging. And if you do not like the music, turn it off. That’s why there is a mute button. Don’t get frustrated just because you cannot pass a level and then rate it one star. It is a good game. You guys also delete the app just because of ads. Just wait until it is over, X out, and continue on. I know it is annoying but stop complaining for such dumb reasons.
Terrible customer service
by Aangeldm01 on 2018/05/19 12:24
I played a game that had the same word twice. I had to use over 500 points, that I paid for, to get past the game because of the duplicate word. I wrote an email to the developer letting them know what happened and asked them to credit me the points. What would the harm have been to the developer to credit some points. However that didn’t happen and they didn’t even respond to my email with an apology. I sent several emails. There have been several kinks in the game where I have had to use my points to advance to the next game. I stated in my email that I would continue to rate the game low and guess what they did. They locked me into a 5 star rating where I’m not able to rate any lower than 5 stars through the game. Can you believe that. That is unethical. I’m completely shocked that a company would do something like this. I’m in the process of filing a complaint meanwhile I wonder what is the next shady thing this company does!! Three days in a row I have received the flowers and points for the daily awakening because it freezes up. I’m sure I won’t receive a response from that email either.
The ads are ridiculous!
by nbombzy on 2018/07/15 03:10
I like the game it is great for passing time but a lot of things bug me and almost make me want to stop playing which I’m sure I will at some point soon. First, there is literally an ad after every level and the levels really take one to five minutes for the most part. Thirty second ads every couple of minutes is over kill and ridiculous. Also, if you close out real quick to answer a text or something and go back in seconds later, you have to watch a 5-15 second ad for that. Secondly, you have to have coins to get hints and the amount of coins it cost versus how much they give for completing tasks makes it impossible. Thirdly, my husband and I both play and we have noticed that sometimes you have to put in the same word multiple times to have it accept it and a lot of the levels are the same. I like the concept of the game, but all those things just really frustrate me. I hope they change it soon or I’ll just delete it and find something else.
Fun but has some hang-ups
by Nevsollee on 2018/07/01 11:13
I’ve spent a while playing this game, and while I’ve enjoyed it more than other word games I’ve tried, it still has some issues I think need to be addressed. First, ad glitches. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried to watch an ad to get coins used in the game, only to have it get stuck on a black screen. You end up having to restart the app and you never get those coins. Second, inconsistency in the words accepted. In all puzzles some words that are not part of the crossword are still accepted as “bonus” words. But it seems to vary from puzzle to puzzle which are accepted. For example: one puzzle might accept “TIN” as a bonus word while another might not. It’s frustrating when you get to the bonus combo mode and you lose it on a word that should have been accepted universally. All that said I’m not usually a big fan of word games but this one has grabbed me. I’m still going to play for now, and hope for some fixes!
Enjoyable & challenging with scoring & time issues &
by Dwell! on 2018/07/05 16:46
Word Crossy is a fun & challenging game. There are some problems that reduce enjoyment of the game and rob players of points & time. Like other players have mentioned, the flower/coin point system is vague. Please resolve these problems. I’ really like this game; but, am considering uninstalling it. Here are a few examples of glitches & issues: 1. Stolen coins: Game took 50 coins & gave me nothing but red, swirling sparkles when Lightbulb Tool was selected. No hint was displayed; so, I did not get what I paid for. 2. Full bank won’t empty: Missing green Free-Empty option button: Green free-empty option button does not always appear in full cat bank option box. So, I could not empty bank & coins earned in next game were lost since they couldn’t fit. 3. NEXT game button after cat bank fills up: Sometimes the “NEXT” game button appears in error after the cat bank fills up instead of the special box with the options for free-empty or purchase. So, future coins are lost since full bank couldn’t be emptied. 4. Ads (too many, too long): 30-second advertisement after each game is excessive. No, I won’t buy the ad-free game option with real money because game cannot be trusted with my play money/game coins due to the glitches I described above. 5. Lonnng scoring transitions between games. Slow, flying flowers & coins counting in addition to long ads after each game ... too much time wasted.
Love WordCrossy
by Bella4ever886 on 2019/04/27 20:35
Love wordcrossy!! Lots of fun 😊...plus this is a one ☝️ of a kind type of game 🤩🤩🤩 because it is also very educational, helpful, & just very useful for all of us!!! Cuz Word Crossy enables you to broaden your vocabulary hence giving you access to being able to feed your brain’s knowledge power so to speak!! Since this game helps to teach you all dorts of different words that includes all the different kinds of words from verbs, nouns, adjectives to even pronouns!!?!! Idk if anyone else actually cares about their vocabulary knowledge, but I am always wanting to keep on learning and learning which includes my vocabulary power so to speak!! Cuz I am not one wholikes to use really big and fancy words that only our Congress man and Senators and lawyers and doctors are always using in their everyday communication with each other!! But I would like to be!! Hence why I totes love word crossy🤩
Could be a great game
by hialeahnarmi on 2018/08/06 16:50
The ads are unbelievable. You literally get an add after every game. It slows down the game and makes it annoying because you can’t even mute every commercial/advertisement so if you are in public and an ad pops up, you have to lower the volume. My other, and even more annoying complaint, is that you can lose a streak because the game doesn’t accept a legitimate word. You might be able to use a word in 1 round to only find out that the same word is not accepted in another round. So even though you know the word has worked before, it might be rejected later. This in turn breaks your streak if you have been getting multiple words in a row. On top of that, certain words won’t be accepted like countries or cities for most of the games but then later on you have to use the Geneva. Like what the heck?!? Why would I even consider using Geneva if you have kept cities, states, countries, etc in every other instance? This game could have been so much better but as is I can only give it a 2
It’s enjoyable, but has some issues
by Kittycam on 2018/04/13 12:09
First of all, the ads.. never have I played a game where there is an ad that plays after EVERY single level, most of which are completed in just a few seconds. Isn’t this game just an exact copy of that one cookie word game anyways? Last issue I have is that the grammar is far from perfect.. First there are tons of perfectly acceptable English words that if entered are deemed incorrect (for example, “ton” was not considered a word, plus the word needed for the puzzle was “tun”.. really now? Come on game creators), however the biggest issue is some words required to solve the puzzle were not even actual words. The game is fun, don’t get me wrong, but the ads are far too frequent and therefore I find myself not wanting to play nearly as much as I would if they were less. I understand that for a game to be free there needs to be ads, but this one isn’t good enough to pay to have them removed, or to literally spend as much time watching ads as I do playing the actual game.
Fun Game
by Honey1126 on 2018/03/08 08:29
It’s a fun game, but frustrating at times, because 1) I feel like they use words that are so obscure they almost seem made up. It does force me to look up these words and increase my vocabulary, but at the same time frustrating if I’m trying to solve and don’t know what that final word is. 2) every time I try to use the daily spin (whether it’s on my iPhone or iPad) an ad will pop up advertising a coin sale and when I “X” out of that, the wheel is now frozen and I can’t get my daily spin in. Which brings me to 3) This “50% off” on the prize wheel is dumb and when I can manage to click on the wheel before the ad pops up (very rare by the way), it seems that 90% of the time it will land on this, even though it clearly should have stopped before that or it was going fast enough that it should have passed it. Because of these issues, I’m hesitant to buy any coins. If issues #2 & 3 aren’t fixed soon, I will be deleting the app and finding something less frustrating.
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!
Skillful Crossy!
by gbarnes. on 2018/07/01 02:06
I absolutely love this game and would have given it a 5 all day long. However, the game rewards you to hook it up to your Facebook page which I never do but, against my better judgement I did and as soon as I did, all of my inventory was taken, except 5 pieces each. I had at least 100 each maybe more! I also had an abundance of coins. Again against my better judgment I bought many different piggy bank packages which, I never do and I mean never! This is actually the first game I have ever purchased things for that shows you how much I liked the game! After this happened, I sent the developers an email and they have yet to respond to me. I’m not sure how much longer I’m going to keep this game because I’m not happy that the developers did think my complaint was important enough to respond to. Good Luck to all you gamers and my best advice to you is DO NOT HOOK YOUR GAME UP TO FACEBOOK BECAUSE SOMEONE MIGHT STEAL ALL YOUR HARD EARNED INVENTORY!!!
Random????
by Burtonious on 2019/05/20 19:33
I will start off by saying that I plan on removing this game from my phone unless someone will explain the logic behind the decisions of the the game at higher levels. I understand that the game must increase in difficulty, but when the same decision produces different outcomes, one starts to consider that trying to understand is senseless. This was an interesting and challenging game until to get to the point where it seems there is no logic or strategy behind the randomness. In the butterfly challenges sometimes a word will remove one butterfly and in another attempt it will only remove one. Of course failed attempts leaves you with two options quit and return the next day when you have more attempts or pay for extra attempts. It also appears that you have to play the challenge so many times that it will finally allow to to move past the level. This returns me to my previous statement where the designers force you to pay for extra attempts. This was a fun game, now it’s just an exercise in futility.
Not the worst game
by Mooshiedog on 2018/01/27 17:36
It’s ok. The amount of ads is ridiculous, sometimes having to watch a 30 second ad after playing one round that might take ten seconds to complete. I ended up just turning off Wifi so n9 ads can load. Scoring is inconsistent to say the least. You get flowers for correctly guessing words, but the flowers don’t seem to get you anything. If you want to buy more coins for clues one of the options is to buy either a “half hour” or “hour”, but they don’t tell you half hour or hour of what. You get extra points for guessing words that aren’t in the puzzle, but that just rewards you for being wrong. There are no bonus points for finishing within a certain amount of time or solving the puzzle without guessing incorrect words. That makes no sense at all. And you could get ten points for solving a fifteen word puzzle but 25 points for solving a six word puzzle. Makes no sense at all and don’t expect any explanation of the rules to be found anywhere.
Ads run longer than the levels, and after every level!
by Jedi365 on 2018/08/10 00:41
I have never downloaded and deleted an app so fast in my life! I’m not unfamiliar with free apps having ads, but this is literally a 30 second ad every time you get through a level regardless of how long it takes you (once you get past level 10 or so, which doesn’t take too long). Then you have to close 3 different windows. And heaven forbid you don’t accidentally leave the app, because then you have to watch the ads again before you resume play, even if you completely watched them before! Not to mention the game play they advertised this game with looked totally different (it depicted making a new picture from other pictures—for example a snail and a match and the ad made a “lollipop” with the match stick and snail shell) which is nothing like this junky game that downloaded! Don’t waste your time downloading and playing this game, unless you want to watch the same 3 app commercials repeatedly for longer than you spend playing!
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.
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.
On Wi-Fi
by Nyala10 on 2018/05/25 19:56
So I'm at home on Wi-Fi but when I want to get more lives by watching a video it says "connect to the internet and try again". Right... I'm connected ok? Then I have similar issues that everyone else seems to have: 1) no rules or explanations of rewards 2) funky non-English words 3) ads between every level 4) what the heck are the flowers for? 5) why do we have to pay to open the piggy bank when we've earned the gold coins and they're ours? I'm not paying a cent on this game and I'd advise others not to either. 6) words are accepted on one level but not another 7) have you noticed all the reviews are January through early April. What happened to the rest of the year? The reviews are from years past it seems but after march it scrolls back to January. I think the developer has lost interest and doesn't pay attention to our reviews to fix the issues.
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.
Piggy bank full but can’t redeem/empty
by JayGee too on 2018/07/24 04:27
I’m at level 493. I just filled the piggybank again but it won’t let me retrieve the coins AND it won’t add any more. So I’m playing and completing puzzles and not getting coins. There is what appears to be a timer at the bottom of the button used to retrieve the piggybank coins. My timer says 18:23:19. Does that mean I can’t get my coins for 18 hours plus. If so I might as well quit playing until tomorrow. I’ve had some of the other problems mentioned as well. I saw somewhere that once you got 10,000 flowers there was some reward. I have over 12,000 and still waiting to get whatever reward. I too have noticed that valid words do not score. I know that 2 letter words don’t count but I’ve had many 4-5 letter words that don’t score anything. I did discover that if one taps the “Bonus” to the left of the flower at the top it will reveal the bonus words found and the number of bonus words available. That leads me to believe that not all dictionary words are valid as bonus words. One just gets so many per puzzle I guess. I too would like to see a more complete description of the point system and also what makes a combo a great combo versus an outstanding combo etc. Lastly, I’ve discovered many slang words are valid and I didn’t expect that.
I Love this game But
by MommaHaneline on 2019/05/06 02:07
So I will start out by saying I love this game and I’m totally addicted. I’m 500 levels in so I’ll give you my full opinion. There is an ad after every round which was annoying at first when the rounds are really easy, but they get a little harder and take a little longer to complete so the adds stopped bothering me pretty quickly. I don’t understand the scoring on the Butterfly card rounds... which is a bit annoying because I think I could complete the harder levels easier if I understood how you can get more than one butterfly at a time instead of it just seeming random. Some of the words are a little out there but I love the dictionary feature. So as soon as I guess a word that I don’t know what it means I can click the Aa button and it tells you the definition. I like that because word games are supposed to help you expand your vocabulary. The biggest thing that still irritates me about the game though is that when I saw the add for the game while playing another game, the word puzzle in the add is nowhere to be found in the actual game. Which is kind of messed up on advertising’s side. Like come on.... Overall... I am addicted and I do like the game.
Needs Some Fixing
by Yeah, You Know on 2018/03/23 01:38
After almost every round you will have to watch an ad, if not after every round. This is very annoying, and makes the game pale in comparison to similar games with less obtrusive advertising. Also, the bonus word should not be mandatory. It’s called a bonus for a reason. I also put ton in as a word, but apparently that’s not the correct spelling, despite the fact it is. In fact, there are many times you will spell a word but they want it spelled in some European way. Finally, there have been ones when I’ve put in word after word that just acts as a bonus instead of actually being in the puzzle. Which is just annoying. Actually, I have one more complaint which is the finger tracking on the game is abysmal. So many times I have traced over certain letters but they won’t connect. I’ve had the same problem on my tablet and my father’s phone.
Argh
by Fetid pair of donkey kidneys on 2018/02/27 19:48
I have so many frustrations with this game and most are about words. 1. Words that aren’t words. I know there are words that I don’t know yet, and that’s okay, but when you look up a bizarre word and can’t find a definition, it’s crap. 2. Bonus words. I’m not talking about the stand along word you get coins for. When you get a word that’s not on the board, they count it as a bonus word. Whether they count terms or not varies widely and is hugely inconsistent. Being punished for getting a legitimate word that was in a previous board is immensely frustrating. 3. Word choice. I get that it’s meant to get harder, and that’s fine, but the words they choose sometimes are awful in context. There will be rounds when everything you put in is counted off as bonus and you can’t get a darn thing on the board because they skipped over so many good words to focus on bizarre crap. I’ve had rounds with 20 bonus words when I’ve had to look up words because they chose a poor selection. I have a good vocabulary, so when I’ve tried everything normal and am on to being punished for trying “nary”, it’s crap. I’m on level 640-ish and it’s utterly ridiculous. All of this points back to money. In the game setup it’s obvious they’re trying to set it up in such a way that you feel confident and then just use a hint on that one word.
New Update Confusion
by Acandies on 2018/09/20 03:10
For some reason my hidden talent in life is making words out of any assortment of letters so I love games like this. Before the update I could fly through levels but if I got stuck on one word (usually some old usage or British pronunciation word as some have mentioned before) I could just spend some of the massive coin total that I have accrued over the course of 900+ levels and figure it out after one or two letters. Now with the latest update there is literally zero usage for the coins! Makes no sense. Now you have to use one of there 3 hint features which you can only slowly collect via a daily bonus by logging on once a day. I get that’s how you guys make your money and stay relevant but as someone who will never spend money on such a simple game it is quite irksome. Miss the good ol days of Text Twist.
Incomplete
by FightingTheDark on 2018/02/19 06:29
As someone who enjoys words and vocabulary games, I was excited to get this. However the dictionary this game uses is both incomplete and inconsistent. On some levels the crossword will have a word (eg. pope) AND the plural of the same word (eg. popes). However on other levels it does not recognize plurals of words, not even as bonus words. And since the scoring system gives you bonuses for consecutive crosswords and bonus words found, it’s quite frustrating to have a high consecutive word count and then make the plural of a word and have it break the chain because the dictionary doesn’t recognize it. (Eg. bite/bites). Also. In one level it recognized the word “not”. But not the word “ton”. It DID however recognize the word “tun” which actually is a real word. But come on. Ruin my word streak for “ton”? These are real examples from within the first 20 levels of the game. After which I deleted the app.
Rip off
by ianmagary on 2018/01/07 19:26
I paid for no advertising and the latest update of this app is ridden with stupid pop up adds for in app purchases, social media connection and coins and other silly unneeded and very annoying pop ups. I now have to "X" out of multiple layers of BS, self serving ads the developer wants to throw out there to get to the actual puzzle. Their dictionary acumen is horrible too. Over 50% of the time when you put a legitimate, correctly spelled word out there in hopes it's one of the ones for the puzzle. The app doesn't even recognize, nor give you credit for finding a word that fit the letters, yet was not in the puzzle. Needless to say, I'm done with the greedy, self serving app developers. There's much better games out there and ways to spend my time. I will seek refund from the developer first, then Apple if no resolution. I emailed the developer 2 weeks ago and it's been crickets ever since. Do yourself a favor and find any other app than this one!
Uses old English?
by Haunted Spit on 2018/07/07 17:07
I enjoy this game but spend half of my game time in disbelief, searching for a dictionary definition of words I have never heard of. Many words used in this game are from old English or British use (?). Such as “deb”, “loo”, “pooh”, etc. And many I have never heard or seen used in a sentence, such as “rewin”. Also, I notice the first words I find are pretty common, such as “sour” but it won’t be used in the puzzle. Instead it is collected in a “gift box” as a bonus word. If you collect enough of these, you are awarded coins. It seems the developer could’ve put these words in the puzzle but failed to do so and the gift box words are a fix to that problem. As other reviews have mentioned, many times the words used in the puzzle are singular and also plural forms of a word which becomes stale and not very challenging (e.g. “her” and “hers”).
It's alright
by K.C.87 on 2018/01/13 03:23
Super fun way to pass time.. the ads are annoying but for $ you can get rid of them. One bad point aside from it not taking words that aren't on the crossword as bonus words like it should. When you get so many bonus words the meter fills up so you get coins, BUT I don't know if it's because you don't get enough bonus words in a row or what but my meter fills after so many words and stays full. It doesn't give coins or reset like it's supposed to I've deleted and re installed the app too many times to count to try to fix it. But once I reach level like 32 I don't get coins for bonus words which is a total ripoff. So meh good way to pass time but I wouldn't spend any actual money on it
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.
It could be better
by Olivoial on 2018/07/28 23:02
All in all I’ve enjoyed the game. It froze on me so I’m going to delete it because the screen has faded to black the past 2 times I’ve opened the app. I’ve played for the past few weeks and it’s been great to pass time. I even got the family involved a few times which was nice. I like the daily rewards etc... and the whole set up. My dislikes: sometimes it doesn’t take the word the first time you enter it to later find out it’s the same word. There are tons of ads, that aren’t versatile - just the same ads. I do like that you can win coins by watching them. My last dislike is because the words sometimes don’t make sense, or they’re really similar like: hike & hikes. Minor corrects could make this game great.
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.
Only good to pass a little time.
by CJ.D. on 2018/05/24 19:30
Tap the watch an Add for extra coins coin box and nothing happens other than the box just goes away. Complete the Daily Word Challenge to receive 25 coins and the Tap to receive screen freezes (while music continues to play) so you can not receive your coins. The only way to continue to play is to go Home and restart App thus losing the 25 DWC coins. Many times words to be found are not spelled properly or are actually not real words at all. A lot of trial & error guessing and waste of coins. Most times you enter a word and it will not register-UNTIL, at games end and after you spend coins to provide a letter. Game coins won go into a piggy bank that you can not retrieve but once every 12 hours then, you are only given a total of 50 coins of all the coins you have won-UNLESS, you pay to receive all the coins.
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.
Could be so much better
by BobRobApex on 2018/04/15 17:10
Update: I like some of the improvements to ways to get coins and the new power ups but still missing very vanilla words at each level (kills the streaks you're on) and the multi level (and longer) ads are really annoying. Dropping to 2 stars. It's fun to find the words in the puzzles but supremely frustrating that it doesn't recognize relatively common words. One puzzle I got credit for ERA and EAR but not ARE. Other times HUES is a word but HUED isn't. Needs to have lots more recognized words and be consistent from puzzle to puzzle. I also think you should get a bonus if you get all the words without making any mistakes. Guess I can start adding words here that the game should count as good...level 1032-micron; 1078-shire, hires, heirs; another level a couple before didn’t take are or ear but did take era; 1083-togs, tugs, gush, hugs, guts; 1434-gavel, ravel
Doesn’t support across devices; ads don’t respect muting
by NannylouG on 2018/04/24 12:20
The game itself is ok. Nothing addictive but it passes the time. When my iPad needs charged and I play on my laptop or iPhone, the status level doesn’t transfer. UGH! The ads are very annoying because: 1) they are after EVERY level, 2) they are redundant (the same ads over and over) 3) they often play music even when the game has been muted (don’t play when you’re supposed to be doing something else!!!) I realize the intent is to get me to pay to remove ads but I actually like to see other games on occasion. Plus I won’t pay if the game isn’t cross compatible or addicting. I expect in a week I will be bored and delete it. UPDATE: Needs some instructions and guidelines regarding: 1) Scoring. How does that work? 2) I still haven’t figured out what the coins and flowers are for. 3) I can’t tell from the icons what each “help” item is. When I clicked on one to find out, I consumed it. 4) There are a LOT of valid words in the standard scrabble dictionary which are not recognized by the puzzle or bonus. It’s ok if they’re not in the puzzle but they should give bonus. 5) it seems to go through instability crashes occasionally.
Mostly fun and engaging, but maddeningly inconsistent.
by rwt1138 on 2018/06/23 18:45
There are a lot of fun and challenging puzzles, and for the most part I find it an entertaining challenge, but the developers really need to tighten up their dictionary. Words that are required to complete some puzzles won’t even register as words in others. Since the game awards bonus points for streaks, it can be extremely annoying to have one broken because you entered a word that was required in the previous puzzle. In addition, it should recognize simple words. The puzzle I’m currently on has rejected dot, ton, not, duo, don, all simple words and all of which are required in other puzzles. Meanwhile, it ignores some obscure words but has puzzles requiring lenis, secondary, and other extremely obscure words. Fix the dictionary issue and make it consistent, and this would get more stars from me.
Fun game to play when you’re bored, but has some issues.
by hburns11 on 2018/01/13 16:29
Fun game to play when you’re bored, but has some issues. The object is to get as many words as you can in a row, to get the most points, but if you miss one, you won’t be able to get as many points. The problem is that it won’t accept many of the words that I enter, that are definitely real words. If it’s not on the crossword, then it should be a bonus word, but some are entirely rejected so that your correct words streak is ended and you’ll get significantly less points for the level. For instance, it didn’t accept “mom,” but it did accept “moms.” Other words it didn’t always accept include: rut, rot, rat, tar, hot, hat, and many others. These should not count against you. Also the ads are really annoying, and their ‘special offers’ for coins and to be ad-free are crazily priced.
Crashes/closes
by amaze2order on 2019/05/24 22:36
I play everyday, usually just before sleep. Overall enjoy the game very much. ( I love mental stimulation/ challenges) has a pretty significant downside though.... crashes/closes periodically. In particular in the middle of the advertising clips for earning coins. For the past 3-4 months have been unable to earn any extra coins by watching the advertisements do to this glitch. And even worse I am getting no feedback/ responses to the emails I send them in regards to this. Such a shame for an otherwise fun game. If these problems were resolved this would have been a 5 star rating. I have emailed via the in app link about the continuous problems, glitches, freezes and shut down issues that I have continuously experienced over the past multiple moths. And as of yet no one has concerned themselves enough to address the issues or even respond to me with any kind of explanation or customer curtesy call at all. Does anyone at the company even care for the users of their product at all? I've given a review addressing these concerns. I've gone out of my way to try and attempt to have my concerns addressed. To no avail. What else can be done to get a response from the owners, creators, managers of this app?
Needs instructions!
by this is questionable on 2018/08/08 15:47
Ditto to all the comments about confusing scoring and no instructions. Fun to play, but frustrating because there is no clue about what is happening except making words. I find it annoying to have filled my piggy bank with game coins and then tap the piggy bank icon to get a message that it is full, get them for free...with no way to get them! ( don’t know what to do with them anyway). Needs some work, but enjoyable mindless way to pass time. Thanks for the reply, BUT... yes, there is a countdown on the piggybank... BUT, once it fills it CAN NOT be emptied immediately, ONLY once every 12 hours!!! That discourages me from playing for very long when I can’t claim the coins. So when the bank is full, I simply stop play until I can empty the bank in 12 hours. Sad
