Ads are a pain
by rbvdisney on 2019/09/21 14:28
Too many and too long ads.
Fun

Super fun , exercises my brain lol i love it
Ads ads ads ads oh, and ads
by John _Space on 2019/09/18 06:50
OMG - latest update to “enhance user experience” was to add additional ads on the daily challenge - now includes 3 double ads and 5 seriously lame games. Isn’t the ads on the screen at all times enough?
Word town ads
by Alphiebug on 2019/09/18 04:06
Ads are sooo long and numerous for these short little puzzles. Annoying
Deleted it
by mjterpaz on 2019/09/16 22:24
I loved this app, then I was doing a puzzle today and when I got the words “overweight, pudgy” and then “lazy.” I deleted the puzzle. I don’t want any of my kids doing puzzles that encourage negative stereotypes
More ads than game
by GuessOhio on 2019/09/16 17:46
There are TWO ADS FOR EVERY GAME. this is crazy and not worth the time. The 2nd one goes 30-60seconds.
Ads ruin it
by FedUpAlready on 2019/09/16 12:17
They have changed this so that now when you successfully complete the daily puzzle you MUST sit through an ad or it won’t log your win. Not cool. Done playing until this is fixed. Bye.

To many interruptions great game over all. Have a lot of glitches causing you to restart game.
Just started
by JMAC195459 on 2019/09/15 16:18
So far plays well
New update not great
by Ange1 Baby on 2019/09/15 15:53
Would’ve given it five stars except for the newest update Newest update is not the greatest please bring back ‘spin’ for daily coins instead of three colorful boxes - spin with option to do additional spin was more fun Now when completing the daily game a video ad pops up before you can see what the title of the puzzle was And it’s not worth watching the ad just to see the title
Great game but a glitch
by ClinB on 2019/09/15 11:03
I’ve played this game for at least a couple years. Always worked perfectly. Enjoy the daily game. Lately I’ve played the same games repeatedly.
Too many ads
by blast2459 on 2019/09/15 06:51
Good app BUT too many ADS
Too many ads
by leanneqt on 2019/09/13 04:01
Fun and pretty easy game, but the higher the levels the more ads I have to watch. I seem to spend more time watching ads than actually playing and I won’t pay for this. Bye-bye Word Town.
Love this game, but have a question
by Bookman58 on 2019/09/12 04:14
This has become my favorite game in years. Some puzzles I get right away and others I have to do again and again. But I NEVER shuffle, there is always a way to win each level if you persevere, I love that about it. However, I paid right away for the game and to remove the ads. Now I’m at level 640 and the ads have returned. I don’t have to pay again, do I?
Ads ads and more ads
by Boogmama on 2019/09/08 22:53
I really liked the free version of this game but the ads were irritating. I went ahead and spent the $2.99, no problem. Funny, now I seem to always get into a situation where you can’t continue unless...you pay for coins or watch an ad. I’m watching more ads now than with that free version. Shame, I really wanted to like this game :0( Edit: Thanks for responding. I really do love this game.
Liked Game. Hate stupid commercial
by Ficcon on 2019/09/06 12:42
I liked the game but tired of seeing Choice advertisement after every round. Guess I’m done with this game.
Play for 10-15 seconds, get a 45 second ad! 😭
by PJCESQ on 2019/09/02 10:54
Sure the game is ok. I don’t really like wordfind games but this one is a little different. I would keep it if not for the incessant ads. Each game takes 10 to 15 seconds to complete and then you get an ad for up to 45 seconds. After I got this twice in a row, I said goodbye. There are in-game apps (typical coin buying nonsense) and these annoying ads. So, after ten minutes, I deleted it.
Exciting Game!
by Prince chick on 2019/08/30 03:26
I just started this game, but so far it is really fun & exciting...tnx to the makers!!!

Too many ads
by AudioMoney on 2019/08/25 22:13
You start a level, you get an ad. You answered a text, you get an ad. You stick around too long on a level, you get an ad. Long story short, this game has more adds than game play. It’s sad because the game is pretty solid, and I get the developers need to make money. It’s just too many ads.
Great Game
by setsw on 2019/08/25 03:13
I am getting hooked on this game.
Ads and more ads
by picardone on 2019/08/25 01:25
When I first downloaded the game the ads were not to bad. But as time went on they came more frequently. Now every time I start a new game and need to check something else on my tablet and come back to finish the game I am forced to watch another ad. Three times during one game is ridiculous. I get they need ads but really!! Guess what!! After writing this review I went back to my game. They same one I have already watched three ads on I was forced to watch a forth one. I am uninstalling. Other than the ads its a good game.
Ads

Way tooooo many ads
Don't like the new changes
by whatever709 on 2019/08/24 11:07
I've been playing this app daily for about a year. I enjoyed earning the monthly-changing magnets, but the recent changes removed this incentive and replaced it with a calendar. Please change it back!
Great game

Beautiful
by phokisd on 2019/08/21 19:06
Love the game, just one request! Please bring back the original slower, calmer music that was played before the update..it was literally the most relaxing moments of my day and I really appreciated the tranquility of it. The new upbeat music is nice but could it be an option to switch settings to the other one possibly? Otherwise, the update was great. Such a beautiful game, thank you!
Daily puzzle
by Nomad Gene on 2019/08/21 18:13
Really like the game ,but my wife and I used to race the daily puzzle. Now we each get a different one.🙁 can’t race anymore.
Hate to see you go but...
by Hahjddvjj on 2019/08/21 00:36
I’ve played this game for several months and I loved it. That is until the latest upgrade, now I hate playing this game. It’s almost impossible to complete a single puzzle without shuffling over and over again because the words are so difficult to find. And why do I have to complete an entire month on the daily puzzles to get coins. It’s not enjoyable anymore, just frustrating...
Great game

by Liketoplsy on 2019/08/16 22:26
This is not the game I was shown in the ad and am disappointed that it isn’t.
Fun game but too many ads.
by khocolate007 on 2019/08/16 17:01
I enjoy the mystery of no knowing the subject but there are way too many ads.
Wonderful

Daily bonus
by VeganGal on 2019/08/16 15:34
I really like the update to the daily bonuses with the exception of the additional coins when you watch a video. Since the update I have not been able to get the additional coins for the daily bonus. When I click the button it either goes to a black screen where I have to restart the game or tells me no videos are available. I’d rather see this option go away than waste time with the glitches. If you need to know I have an iPhone running iOS 12.4. Thanks.
Update makes ads invasive
by Poopface32 on 2019/08/15 02:00
I understand if I’m not going to pay for a game I will have ads. When I first loaded the game a few months ago I got addicted and, even though there was and ad between every game, I tolerated it. Now there has been an update and the ads are out of control. I get interrupted in the middle of a game to watch ads and there is a constant add at the bottom of the screen. I only play one game a day now because I get so frustrated being sent to an add while I’m in the middle of a game. I’m about to delete the app.
Noise
by hey❗️ on 2019/08/13 22:40
Game is ok. I play on silent. All your adds play sounds. Some you can mute some you cannot. Mute your adds or I’ll drop this for 1 of 50 other, similar, word games.
No Clues
by FairyPryncess on 2019/08/13 05:28
For each level it is hard to find words because there is no theme. For example if the puzzle is about 🐶 there is no way of knowing this, because it is not given at the start of the puzzle. So you have no idea what words to 👀 for. Only after the words are found the theme appears. You spend too much time looking for words & are totally lost of what words to look for. Would help if there was some sort of hint on what type of words too look for. Also the ads are too long & after every level. The letters at the bottom are too close to the icons & one could accidentally touch the button and lose coins.
Not the game advertised?
by Lexitron95 on 2019/08/12 15:56
The game is okay. But it is not the game that was advertised. I clicked on an ad thinking it was the game shown in their advertisement and when you download the game it’s a completely different game. I’ve read a few other reviews saying they experienced the same thing so I know it’s not just my mistake. They need to fix this, because it’s kind of false advertisement?
Fun until I got tired of guessing the word order
by 4nicknamestaken on 2019/08/11 21:14
Enjoyed until level 307 and then I just got frustrated guessing the word order. It wasn’t fun anymore .
Disappointed
by lovemyFinn on 2019/08/11 15:45
They just changed the daily game to resemble the regular game. The daily game used to be so fun. I played it every morning. It never let you run out of words and have to start over. I will no longer be playing this game.
Not what it seems
by CallMeMaybee on 2019/08/10 17:33
I thought it was going to be a word match to a picture game. Not what is advertised.

Challenging at times and fun
by JanLynneDowe on 2019/07/30 12:39
I love this game. It is just the right amount of challenging. Only drawback I see to this game is that there are way too many ads. I understand you need ads to help pay for the game, but a 15 to 30 second ad at the end of every level gets really annoying

by nancyadair on 2019/07/22 20:08
I enjoy this game. But some of the ads are a real problem. I was assailed by an ad for a Sniper game that I found disturbing. A word game for all ages should not have this kind of ad.
Not Challenging Effort
by DCGIANTS on 2019/07/20 14:02
These puzzles are too freaking easy. I’ve accumulated over 4500 coins which indicates to me that the puzzles are easy. I do not need to purchase any coins. Also, the developers should consider posting high scores or high levels of other app participants. I like to compare myself to others. Probably will delete this app eventually if it does not challenge me in the future.
Disturbing ads
by kc-sunshine on 2019/07/18 14:56
Dear developer, very disappointed in the most recent ads stream.I love your game but I am ready to delete it. I am repeatedly getting an ad for the matchington mansion game and find the ads offensive and disturbing. Today there was a character sitting on the TOILET. And the game is violent (death, fires, and more) I understand the use of ads to generate revenue, but you will lose your audience if these ads continue. I am ready to remove your app. I followed the directions in your response to this review to contact you through the app. Received a response that others have complained. Opened your app and the SAME OFFENSIVE Ad popped up.

Shuffle denied
by Musdean on 2018/10/29 22:05
I’d like to say straight out that I love this game. Some of the words are easily found but others require multiple shuffles. I can see some words that would be successful but can’t get to them without a shuffle. But when I go to reshuffle, the free button shuffle is darkened and I am unable to continue. How many times are you allowed to shuffle before you are denied? If I don’t have the coins necessary (for whatever reason)to purchase what is a person to do? While I hate the adds that are a part of the shuffle, I should not be limited to the number of times I choose to invoke the free shuffle. As a second thought, perhaps the adds could be rotated so one doesn’t have view the same add 6 times in a row. If I already have the game being advertised, or I’m not interested in the game, I shouldn’t have to watch the same add. Change it up each time. Except for these issues, this is really a fun game. The word categories are not easily guessed which makes the search even more challenging. Fix the advertising issue and I give it a 5+. For now it’s a 4.
Satisfied Suggestion
by CFvrFan on 2019/01/04 09:29
Wonderful exceptional brain powered game; however, beginning to agree w/review regarding to ads.... I enjoy them - they gives a lil break into the game and intro to new games as design to do but way too long. Although ads servers it’s purpose but it also create boredom because the interest is lost while waiting especially if it’s a game that’s downloaded. In which I often switch to another game-but it’s 2-3 weeks/ months before I play Word Town. A repeated cycle eventually it may come to deleting a wonderful game. It’s intensified then you need to shuffle w/ little coins therefore you watch an ad instead that seems like eternity because the excitement of completing the board now stress is created- that defeat the purpose of relaxing and feeding the brain. Suggestion; shorten the ads and/or increase more ways to earn coins. 120 a pop goes fast when u excited and don’t won’t the wait. Uncertain w/this game offer buying ads free but the ads frustration prompts purchase- but too many similar games to download opposing to purchase nevertheless a wonderful game.
Too many ads
by PlainlyBlunt on 2018/08/25 21:40
I Removed the game within hours of downloading it to my phone. Every word search required shuffling the puzzle’s letters - to line up as words. Each shuffle sends you to a pop-up with option to use 120 coins or “remove free”. It is not “free” because I spent 30-60 seconds on each word watching ads to download the same three games repeatedly - so it has a time loss factor cost. If you close the ad you lose the new shuffle that arranges the letters into recognizable words. Time is valuable, relaxing while playing a game should not require watching 30 seconds - one minute for almost every shuffle of letters to shift into place. Sometimes I had to do 4 shuffles to completely get letters in word form, for one word. Depending on the number of words in a particular word search you can spend 3-5 minutes solving a short 5-8 word search puzzle. If the purpose is for users to buy coins, or what ever, after downloading, be up front on the App download - say so! My recommendation is do not waste your time downloading this game if you are not interested in wasting more time waiting and watching dis-interesting ads, repeatedly, encouraging you to download more of the same type time-wasting games, or paying to remove ads. Glad I kept my paper word search books!
Word Town
by Sam Houston 13 on 2018/11/07 05:21
Just started playing, but so far, so good. Playing has been lots of fun, but since m not certain why you get the puzzle name, like “Things with wings”, after you have finished the puzzle. It would be more beneficial to know the puzzle theme so you would know what kind of words to look for. So far, that’s not been a problem; but later on, as the puzzles become more difficult, it could make thing dicey. Right now, when I find a word that is a legal word, but not part of the theme name, the game puts those words in a list for later, when I can convert them into coins. I’m always ok with getting extra coins, but I think knowing the theme would be more helpful as time goes on & the difficulty degree advances. Even so, it is a fun game and one I would recommend. In fact, I have my husband playing it right now. How can you loose when you can increase your vocabulary & have fun while you’re doing it!
“No more words”??
by If.Maggie.Dies.We.Riot on 2019/01/19 06:39
I love the whole game, without the ads of course. I had to remove them because they were so annoying and in front. One ad was at the bottom of the page, flashing. I couldn’t stand it and that commercial showed up EVERYTIME I opened the app. But what gets me the most— the fact that a game runs out of words and you have to watch a video or spend coins to shuffle the tiles.. WHY?! It’s not MY fault that I’m not finding words in the order that the game wants me to. And that’s not even how a real crossword puzzle works. There is NO excuse for having to restart the level or forcing someone to either spend coins or watch an ad just to shuffle the tiles because they didn’t find words in the ‘correct’ order you wanted them to. The shuffle should be free, period. ESPECIALLY when there’s “no more words”. Other than that, I like the game. I just really hate the fact I have to watch a video to shuffle the tiles just because I found another word before the others. I hope that gets fixed in the future because now I’m getting that message on (yes, literally) every single level that I play.
Sold Out to Advertisers
by ChicagoMeg on 2019/01/01 19:46
The purpose of this app is to find words among the letters. You find words vertically or horizontally, but not diagonally. You watch sit through a game app advertisement video before every game. Note that very often the letters must be shuffled because the order they are in does not create any words. To reshuffle the letters, you must either use your coins or watch a video. The video at the beginning of each game is usually longer than the game. Being required to watch multiple videos to finish a game means you will spend more time watching ads then you will finding the words. There are only a handful of advertisers, so you end up watching the same advertisement constantly. The designers of this app may or may not have noticed how ridiculously long most of the ads are. Some ads don’t even allow you to opt out of them before you start your game. You can press the ‘x’ to opt out over and over, yet it will not function. That’s a sneaky & nasty little programming maneuver by the advertisers. I long for the days when I could pay for a game app but, alas, this app designer has sold out to the advertisers. I will delete this app after this review.
Suggestion: I am addicted to this game
by Tenaj06 on 2018/12/10 18:14
Hey...love the game and addicted to it. I’ve been playing for a few weeks now up to level 500s. Yeah there are ads but what do you expect, the game is free to play plus it’s more entertaining than some games we pay for. Some ads are useful...anyway. I came up with an idea and I hope it can be implemented. Why not give additional coins for guessing the puzzle theme? Not verbatim but start with like 25 coins for guessing the theme after completing 2 words then the coin value decreases as more words are revealed. That’s one challenge. Just trying to think of more ways to get coins especially since it costs 80 coins per hint. Also, have another daily challenge and timed puzzle challenges for additional coins. That’s all I can think of...can anyone else think of anything? Let’s try to help, think of solutions for our criticisms/complaints. Thanks...Tenaj’
Enjoyable
by b.kovacs on 2019/01/31 18:42
I really enjoy this game. I even suggested to my sister and she is enjoying it as well. I have some confusion on people complaining about having to shuffle. I think I have only used that option a couple of times. Why? You may be asking (or not) it is because I use the other choice of restarting that particular level. I already know some or most of the words, so by restarting I can now do them in a different order to find the word that I missed that made the puzzle not work right the first time. It really doesn’t take that much longer. Also, the ads...well some of them...can be skipped after a few seconds, as there is a double “arrow” or ff symbol >> in either the upper right or left corner when you tap on the ad, touch that symbol and it takes you to the end of the ad. Thanks for this fun game! Loves word games
Don’t waste your time
by omgwhocaresjustletmepost on 2019/02/10 06:46
I found this game in an advertisement in another game. THIS game is not at all how it was advertised in the OTHER game I was playing. It actually looked interesting in the ad of the OTHER game. Then there’s the matter of ads on THIS game... There aren’t any more annoying ads here than there are on another other game but I’m saying this because the game still has potential (even though the advertisement for it was a lie). Don’t bombard people with stupid ads every 30 seconds. I get that games like this earn their money by ads but it makes the players hate the game in the end, which will result in deleting. (And Yes, I deleted both this game and the game I found the ad on). And maybe that’s the goal of game devs who earn money from ads— to entice people to get their games with false ads, pelt them with other false ads once they get the game then repeat. But if you want a meaningful game that people would actually be willing to pay for and give you money that you deserve, I’d suggest fixing these problem. Not that I have any stakes in this, I just deleted the game. It’s just a tip.
Constant Ads 😠
by Ty's Miho on 2019/01/10 11:57
I write this review as my last move before removing this game. I usually don’t write reviews but am doing so in hopes of the possibility of helping others not fall into the trap of downloading this app. No game should be completely reliant on either your endless purchases or having to watch endless ads. I enjoyed the game itself but if you find yourself at an impasse, which can happen often (it’s part of the format), then you must purchase help or watch ads. In watching the ads you are also forced to listen as well even if you have turned sounds off in the app and in your settings, this app overrides all settings. Having sounds on through ridiculous ads is not just annoying but a complete intrusion of the individuals personal choices and rights. I’ve tried to stay with the game for several months thinking that it may evolve as you level up, it does not, it actually seems worse. There are a lot of other apps to choose from, if you are allowed to read this review I strongly recommend that you choose one of those others.
It’s fun
by Pander is #1 on 2019/04/19 12:23
Nice game fun to play, but can be challenging at times especially when the word clue for the category does not match with the what the actual words may be. I got one where the clue was petroleum. The words however were kind, loving, generous, and positive words like that which unless petroleum has other meanings that I’ve never heard of obviously didn’t match. This has happened quite a few times. I understand mistakes can have, but it’s been getting more frequent. Someone needs to pay a little more attention before releasing certain levels. Anyways still like playing and will continue to do so. Even with the abundance of ads, but that’s what you get if you don’t wanna pony up the dough. Besides my son likes doing the ads that you can actually demo so it works out.
Can’t begin to have fun
by Overtasker on 2018/09/07 22:19
It would be fun if I didn’t have to watch ads or pay to get the category clue. Not only do you have to choose to pay or watch for the category, you do the same for a shuffle, and I am assuming for a hint as well. In addition to the ads you can choose to watch, there are the random pop up ads which seem to get more frequent as I play. And if I pause play to say go take care of my kids, or dinner, or laundry etc., when I come back to the game, there’s always another ad to watch before I can even begin to play. It doesn’t matter if I watched one at the beginning of the round before I left! I will be deleting this game. Wordscapes is much more fun with less ads. And getting rid of ads was cheaper on that game too, they sold coins and helps with the ad removal. I just can’t justify paying for ad removal for every game but I play that one so much we did. I’m rating it 2 stars because it would be fun if it weren’t for all the ads.
More Ads Than Humans Should Tolerate!
by Shiggitee on 2018/09/01 00:38
Of the dozens and dozens of game apps I have, the game play on this one is really at the top. It’s fun and challenging and I would have given it 5 stars...except for the horrible ads! I understand and support completely the value of advertising/commerce in gaming; however, this is excessive imo. I have no other app that has this level of ad activity. Starting a game, restarting a game, ending a game, winning a game...everything cues an ad. A loud, annoying, multi-part ad which means you have to turn off your phone sound completely or play the game only when you’re alone or in a place that is noisy already. I’m not opposed to paying for ad-free, but it doesn’t seem as though there are very many “towns”/levels to travel through before the game is completed, so I’m not sure it’s worth it. A shame, since this is really a clever game and fun to play...if you can survive the ad assaults!
Ads ugh
by trixieloo52 on 2019/02/20 21:40
I agree with everyone else about the ads. I understand that They are needed as are commercials on TV, but some of them are so long and as one reviewer said, you get so annoyed that you go to a different game or to Facebook or whatever. I do like the updates with a lot more options to earn coins. That is wonderful. I also like the fact that you can find more words for extra points, previously if the word was already found you couldn’t find it again. At some point there would never be any more new words to find, hence no coins. So that was a great update. I know you can pay to have no ads, but there’s no way on earth I’m going to pay for that. That would be cuckoo. Anyway I absolutely love this game and I do it every day.
Ads to Shuffle the Letters!? Bonus Words Awarded Once
by sora.sp on 2018/09/04 06:46
I really loved this game until I started running into a problem. I’d find several words, then there would be no more potential word to find and I had to watch an ad or pay coins to shuffle the letters so I could continue. I think it’s very poor game design. It doesn’t happen every once in a while, but every other game I play or more! I don’t want to sit and watch ads all day or pay a triple the coins I get for completing a level to shuffle the letters. It’s also frustrating that once you find a bonus word, you can’t ever find it again and get credit for it. It makes it discouraging to find a word, get excited, then find out it’s just a bonus word you’ve already found and you get no credit for it. Like, c’mon. I’m deleting the game because the annoyance isn’t worth the game play. I hope I can find a similar game without the same annoyances and poor design.
Love the idea BUT...
by Jshcljgjgokufoydiyfludoy on 2018/08/14 20:41
Absolutely love the idea and the gameplay. Very clever. But I have just one concern. I really dislike apps like these that make you PAY to get rid of advertisements. Look, I’m no expert in games but I do know that there are plenty of other ways to have a successful game then this pay for no ads strategy. I’d rather have you increase the ads then having to pay to banish them if you guys are THAT anxious to put ads in. So I leave you with one question, will you be the first to have a successful game while ALSO finding a better and officiant way to put ads in. That’s up to you, but I high HIGHLY recommend you banish this obnoxious ads strategy. Anyway keep up the good work and try to be the first to stop this. Thank you and goodbye!
Fun - turned irritating
by Overtasker on 2018/09/08 13:25
AllI get a free games. So I understand your desire to get a little money from the ads. But this games has the most ridiculous amount of ads I have ever seen! If it weren’t for the ads this ap would be a five star. Because of the ads, word scapes is much more fun to play. And I think you earn coins faster because I have plenty (at the moment) to buy hints. I did pay for ad removal on that game because the purchase also came with coins and some hints so it was a super good deal. I also play two dots which has an occasional optional pop up ad that gives you a help prize. And you know what, I usually watch them so I can get the prize. They don’t come up very often and you can choose not to do it. So it’s still fun. I will be deleting this game because of the ads. Maybe in the future you can update the ap using some or all of these ideas and let me know and I’ll give it another try. For now it’s back to word scapes so I can actually have fun playing.
Good game, way to many ads
by Methinkest on 2019/05/11 06:06
The game is okay. Find words, like a word search, but without the words listed near the puzzle. Once you find them, it gives you category that they all fit in. It would be more interesting if they showed the words, and you had to guess what they had in common, the category. Why I gave the game 3 stars was the ads. Geez, you play for 10 seconds and then have an ad. That is too many. The creators would have more people staying on their app if they would allow for 5,7,8, or 10 levels pass before an add. Give the player some time to play the game. The ads are longer than the playtime. Apparently they can create games, but din’t know how to please their customers. It’s aggravating enough that I don’t want to spend my time playing. I will check back in a few weeks to see if the listened.
Fun game
by hsh09 on 2018/09/15 05:42
The game’s a lot of fun, but having clues for each level automatically visible as opposed to something players must buy would be a big improvement. I found myself quickly having to blindly choose words I saw and just hope they were part of the list, because I didn’t know what group I was looking for, and I didn’t want to buy the clue. Don’t misunderstand, I still very much enjoy the game, but this will limit the amount of time I will play it; and the idea is just something for the developers to consider. I know you need to make money, too, but, surely, there’s a better option than making the players pay for general clues each level.
Love this game!
by CrazySulli on 2018/11/23 15:09
It has a couple things that I wish were better. For example, if you want to re-scramble the letters in a puzzle you must either pay 120 coins or watch an ad. The ads are long and sometimes difficult to bring up. And if you continually pay the coins, it requires you purchase coins which is expensive. And your reward for working a group of puzzles is only 50 coins, which makes it impossible to replenish your usage. I am really addicted to this game though. And it will help you grow your vocabulary and general knowledge. I keep a dictionary handy to research those words I don’t recognize. I highly recommend this game for your education! Be careful—-it does become addictive!
Good way to exercise your mind
by TheClaireBear23 on 2018/12/20 12:48
The game is imperfect but enjoyable. There is a solution for each level that can be attained without spending coins or watching an ad, just restart and try again. I won't write a commentary on society's need for instant gratification but truly, if the game wasn't challenging, what would be the point? It isn't always easy to find the correct solution and I've spent several intervals of several minutes trying to determine where the next word would be. I love the daily puzzle the most. It looks so difficult but once you get started, it's typically more easily solved than the regular levels. I'm almost to the end of the levels and find myself not happy about that.
Sooooooooo fun
by coins are my love on 2019/01/30 23:16
I love it so much because you level up after you figure out a puzzle it’s so much fun I could spend 500 hours on this game if I could(but my mom wouldn’t let me of course) I recommend everybody to this fun learning games you can jumble-words and earn a good zillion coins a day and it’s free that’s the best part I recommend this the best game in App Store this is my first day playing this and I’ve already earned like a good jillion coins and I’m already on level like 500 I recommendEverybody to get their vocabulary running in just a few minutes come on I believe in you I wish you could make something like this but a crossword puzzle kind of game I am a big fan of your work (now)Love you you’re so amazing
Good game, but.....
by GG Dreamer on 2019/03/15 07:38
For the most part this is a very good game. I love puzzles and this is my new favorite. The content and design are great. There are tons of ads, but since I refuse to pay anything to play games, you learn to deal with them. The ads do give you plenty of opportunities to earn free coins that you can use for hints and reshuffles. The only thing about the game that totally doesn’t make sense is that it doesn’t automatically give you the theme of the puzzle. Just another way for them to charge you coins. What is the reason for this? I’d like know. In one update they changed this to be automatic. It was great. Then in the next update they took it away. To me, this should be a given. If there were any reason that I’d quit the game and delete the app, this would be it. This is also the only reason for my 3 star review.
Finally found a word stack game **updated
by Ldawson687 on 2019/02/21 01:40
I just downloaded and started playing..so far so good. I have been looking for a game like this for a while. I am addicted . The ads don’t bother me....they are not as long as some other games I have played. The only complaint is I wish each level told you the theme without having to use a booster. Unless I am missing something you don’t find out the theme until you have won the level. I am assuming as the levels get harder it will be good to know the theme. **update** thank you for telling us the theme of the level. It makes it much more fun (for me anyway) to have a clue what to look for. Love that his game!
Fun but annoying
by Rebel869 on 2018/06/11 21:14
This is a fun game but a bit annoying. I don’t like the fact that the clues are all boosters that you have to pay for. For example the category clue is something you have to use your coins as well shuffling the tiles. Also the ads are very intrusive and last the 30 seconds not just 10 like other games. Again you have to pay money to get rid of it. They do have the feature that you can watch an ad to get a free booster which is nice. Another thing I didn’t like was when you are stuck or don’t know your next move there’s no way to restart and there’s no way to know if you’re on right path. It would be nice if there was a prompt saying “you're out of moves please use 1 of the boosters” Other than that it’s a fun game to pass the time
Don’t waste $ to “Remove Ads”
by Tcouture1 on 2019/01/05 14:51
I played for a short time with no shuffle issues. I would find all of the words, watch the video ad and move on to the next puzzle. Because I really enjoy this game, but was really tired of watching videos.... I paid the $2.99 to remove ads. Then the game changed! And I’m certain it was developed this way! Before I went ad free, I never “had” to shuffle, unless I chose to. Now that I have removed the ads, I am forced to to shuffle on every other game in order to find the remaining words. I must watch a 30 second video, restart the game or pay the coins. I want to use my coins on hints... not shuffling. There was “never” a “need” to shuffle before I removed the ads. And that is why I believe the game was developed this way. Paying the $2.99 does not remove the ads. It just changes the game.
Would give a 4 except for the ADS!
by ElCheapador on 2018/10/12 15:47
I paid the $2.99 for the game to be “ad free”. While it’s true I no longer have an annoying wait for an ad to run between every game, I am still forced to watch ads or pay more money if I need to shuffle the letters. Annoying. But not half as annoying as the fact that there is absolutely NO WAY to turn the sound off of the annoying ads!! It’s infuriating. So forget trying to play the game in bed at night while another person tries to sleep next to you. There should be an option to turn ALL SOUND off the game so you can play silently. Most of the ads only have music so there is no needs for the sound to come on. For the love of all things good and holy, change your game so that muting sounds and music in the settings mutes ALL sounds and music. Otherwise it’s a fun game.
Too many ads
by Trish1a on 2018/09/14 13:53
I agree with the above reviewer that paying to disable ads needs to be a thing of the past. Paying for coins is no good either. I also feel that watching ads in order to get coins is ok but if the game requires too many coins to move it forward then decreasing the amount of coins needed is what is necessary. While I found the game enjoyable, having to watch several ads in order to get enough coins to make the game progress was too much. A game should only take a few minutes to progress to the next part of the city, but due to the number of ads I had to watch, it was taking about a half hour to progress to the next part of the city. I’ve deleted this app because I just don’t have the time to watch so many ads.
Fun but way too many Ads
by Rolf D on 2018/12/06 23:29
This game is fun and challenging, which I like. But, has way too many Ads, which pisses me off. May or may not keep because I’m increasingly getting sick of the Ads! Read your reply which isn’t exactly accurate as you suggest that I pay for no ads subscription, which in another post you state that some free features still come with ads with a no ads subscription. Also, your game has excessive ads. I do not pay for games so I expect ads, your game is excessive and shows your greed. If you want to address so many complaints on the ads, get rid of 50% of them. Some of your responses to your customers are not even on point making me wonder if your read the concern or if you are just deflecting without any intention of making your customers happy. Come on, you can do better!
Would have been 4 except for:
by Illinois frustrated on 2018/11/05 04:14
Screen freezes up when the “out of words” screen appears. The watch ad option twirls around and cannot be accessed. If I choose restart, the same thing happens when I again am out of words. Of course the pay to scramble option always works, but will run out of coins fast that way. And—of course there are way too many ads that are way too long. Having to wait a few seconds isn’t too bad, but 25+ is ridiculous. The game is very fun & challenging, but I will not pay, so if I cannot choose the option to watch an ad, I will not pay. Another pet peeve: I have sound turned off so can play when my husband is sleeping, yet the ads all come on with sound. What good is that?! And so annoying. Does not make me want to consider any of what’s being advertised.
Not sure how developers response, relates to my problem
by Russell32! on 2018/11/14 20:20
I found it highly annoying that I could not use the shuffle and clue features while fying in airplane mode. I thought I’d break up my 12 hr transatlantic flight by playing a few games, but nope! Requires an internet connection, to shuffle, or get hint, even when no moves are available. When I went back to check data usage of this app (when internet was available), I was appalled by the volume. Even though I’m a paid user, time for me to uninstall. Developers response: "Dear player, we're so sorry for your bad feelings caused by the ads. Actually, all the ads that between levels could be closed or skipped after 5-10 seconds. You can also remove them by purchasing the REMOVE ADS feature. If you would like to continue this game, just feel free to email us and we can help recover your game data.❤️"
I love this game but the ads are ruining it
by TT from Seattle on 2019/01/31 02:03
I’ve been playing this game for a while and have really enjoyed it. However, the last few days I’m annoyed that it interrupts my game and forces me to shuffle or restart. This is a horrible feature! I’ve been dealing with all the ads, literally after every single puzzle there is an ad. Now, to get interrupted in the middle of your game and be forced to restart or watch yet another add to shuffle is ruining this game for me. I’m to the point where I am about to delete this game because it’s not worth it anymore. I understand how ads work and they are necessary for free games. I’m dealing with all the ads, but interrupting someone’s game for more ads is over the top. I would gladly give the game itself 5 stars but the amount of ads and the game interruption gets 2 stars.
It’s cute?
by the casual procrastinator on 2018/09/24 00:44
It’s got all the pieces of a very nice time-eating game. Pretty pictures, the obligatory coin system, sounds that make you feel like you accomplished something and the option to get rid of adds for a simple fee. However, it would be a lot nicer if two things were fixed. One, after you complete a level an add plays, no biggie there, but I can vaguely hear an ending sequence to the level playing under the add, maybe put a pause on that till the add is done or something?? And two: the app still crashes about every 1-5 minutes. One time I had the sound turned up and as the app crashed I heard this weird noise that sounded like an old box television on the static channel. Slightly disconcerting coming from an iPhone.
Freezing
by DaWGrim2323 on 2018/08/26 21:34
I like the game - interesting and fun. However, it is hard to earn points. I completed some frames, and got no points because it simply had no embedded coins. You have to earn points by finding words that are not the key words, collect them in the suitcase, and know enough to empty the suitcase into your points total. It should be automatic. Second, there are issues when some of the ads start and it freezes the app. I think the only way to cure that is to quit the game. If you wait long enough, hopefully the issue gets cleared. But there is also the possibility that you don’t come back.
Fun! But needs dictionary update
by ...Therese... on 2019/02/10 09:14
This is fun and sometimes challenging, but needs a couple of tweaks. I’d like to see more of a challenge in the regular levels like that found in the daily challenge. The number of ads is a bit over the top, and the same 30-second ads are replayed continuously (if I didn’t want that app the first time, I probably wouldn’t want it the 15th time either!) The dictionary needs to be updated. Words like “mete”, “hod”, and “tare” are not accepted as extra words, yet obscure words such as “carr”, and “mus” are accepted. And then there are words such as “ture”, which are not complete words at all, yet they are accepted as extra words. Overall, I’d RECOMMEND if you can overlook these small idiosyncrasies.
Should have read the reviews
by Sparky sharky on 2019/01/05 12:50
So many of the reviews mention the annoying point that I’m at in the game. I paid to remove the ads, now when I’m “out of words” it makes me either “pay more money” or “watch a 30 second ad. Can’t believe; 1- that I didn’t read the reviews before buying because many customers complain of this same thing, so that’s on me, and 2- that you actually do that to your customers. “Extorting” your customer with a mandated “in app purchase” or forcing them to “watch an ad” to continue is really disgraceful. This is a simple game, with simple back grounds and a simple challenge to it. To extort more money or time, via forcing your customers to watch ads to continue to play, is very dishonest and the person(s) in the Conference room that made these group decisions should be fired.
Fun game but way too many ads.
by bodajr on 2018/10/31 00:42
I love this game style. It’s challenging and probably a little better for the brain than bubble popping games. I would give this app 5 stars but for one thing: A ridiculous amount of ads. I realize free games need ads to support them and I don’t begrudge that. This app, however, sets new records on ad quantity. Ads to start a game, ads to go to new level, but most annoyingly, ads to reshuffle letters when no words can be made. It’s either that or spend the “coins” you earn by completing levels. Once you get to advanced levels this happens nearly every game! In my view, the letters should automatically reshuffle if no matches can be made. Every other game I have works that way.
Offensive ad
by The Bible Girls on 2018/09/09 22:24
I have enjoyed this game, as evidenced by the amount of time I have spent playing it—reached level 418 despite the overload of ads. Today I regretfully deleted it due to the appearance of an ad for the “Choices” game, which I find totally inappropriate for an otherwise family friendly game. Not only am I offended by the preview of the game, it is not something I want my 10-year-old granddaughter to see as she looks over my shoulder and offers suggestions. I have deleted other games I liked upon the appearance of this ad, and will continue to do so whenever this offensive ad appears.
Unavoidable Pop Up and Way to Many Ads
by Qrstwre on 2018/11/28 12:56
Even if you pay to remove the ads, you receive an “out of words” pop up which requires either 100 coins, watching a 60+ second ad or restarting the game. If you restart the game, the same pop up appears unless you find words in a different sequence. This pop up is now appearing multiple times in a single game so using coins only works for awhile. This is a real distraction from game play and seems both unavoidable and more pervasive as you progress to the higher levels. I like the game. It’s a little more complex than others as it does not provide the genre unless you use a hint. I am currently at level 250. I have installed a competitors game because it does not have this annoying pop up.
More ads than playing time
by NWILgal on 2019/03/28 05:17
I tried this game for a couple of days and found that I was immensely frustrated by the number of reasons the game found for me to have to watch an ad and by the unreasonable length of those ads as well as the mind-numbing lack of variety in said ads. I won the first dozen or so games in fairly rapid succession and was awarded some coins. Then the game suddenly began to require shuffles; I began to run out of words every game. I studied the playing board very carefully after this happened several times in a row, and I respectfully disagree with the developer’s contention that clearing words in the correct order will always allow you to solve the puzzle without a shuffle. I’ve found more entertaining, less frustrating games and will be deleting this one from my device.
Fun yet disappointing!
by Mash Mart on 2018/10/29 03:04
Overall, a very entertaining game, but the high volume of ads surely takes away from the fun. The worst one is the “out of words” screen that pops up in every new puzzle that forces you to watch an ad or use 120 coins to reshuffle. 1st of all, I’m not out of words! Secondly, there is no “x” button to get rid of that screen?! There is always a reshuffle button at the bottom of the screen if you ever get stuck. So there is no need for “out of words” screen! They just want to force you to watch an ad!! Practically in every 15 mins play, you are watching 5-7 mins advertisement!! I stopped playing it because of too many ads. If there was less advertisement, I would have surely stayed and even purchased coins....
Great Except For Ads
by SolWord345 on 2018/10/08 02:37
I really enjoy this game, but the ads are so annoying. Like others I paid the $2.99 to eliminate the ads between games, but reshuffling still requires you to sit through a 30 second ad. That is too long and after 300 + levels it is ruining the enjoyment of what could be an exceptional game. I would understand if a player chooses to reshuffle, but when there are no words left without a reshuffle it should allow an immediate reshuffle. I realize there is an option to restart the game, but who wants to do so with only a couple words left? Want to play but with all the ads it’s frustrating and a battery drainer. Up to over level 500, ready to quit. Developers are you listening and even reading all these review? We enjoy the game but there are too darn many ads!
It’s fun
by TaraMay on 2018/11/18 07:08
I am a fan of word games; this one is pretty good. It’s not as addictive as some others, which is actually good for me; that means I can put it down whenever I need to. I think the developers should add an option to guess the category for additional coins. I like to see if I can guess the category before it pops up on the screen at the end of the round. It got 4 stars because there’s not really anything that makes it stand out.... it’s just simple and fun. I haven’t been playing this one that long so I do look forward to it getting more challenging as I get to the higher levels.
No More Words..No More Game

I like the game. Don’t like the ads. They are repetitive, too long and you really can’t “x” out of them because they just continue to play (tricky design maneuver, I’m sure). But I would tolerate them because I refuse to pay for no-ads. But I cannot tolerate having to pay, in one way or another, for a shuffle. I don’t want to watch another video or Pay coins. I found the words and shouldn’t be penalized that it wasn’t a specific order. When this happens more than once I close the game. Done. I will return in a few days to try again but when I have to watch a video, pay coins or restart I’m done again. One of these days I will close the game for good because of this unnecessary penalty.
Too many 2 page ads
by Beej1951 on 2019/01/22 02:00
I like the game but... Two things: 1. I don’t object to a few ads. You aren’t doing this for nothing. I don’t even object to two page ads if I’m not forced to stay on the second page. But the ads are irritatingly frequent, and even more irritating is I can’t just exit out of the second page. I play these games to relax, not to be irritated. 2. The hint and shuffle buttons are located exactly where my fingers either rest or drag on the buttons. I have no hints or shuffles left because of that - not because I can’t find words. Again, it’s irritating. I will download the upgrade, but if the irritation continues, I’ll be deleting.
Interrupting ads
by Cptn. Fuzzy Pants on 2018/11/28 02:31
—Updated response to developer response— I completely understand the need for ads to generate revenue for your work. I’m ok with that. The issue is that there is a reasonable way to do ads and then there’s the way you guys do it. Your way becomes so intrusive to the whole experience of the game that it distracts from any real fun the users may have. You guys went over the top with the ads. I play several games with ads and they don’t impact my enjoyment of the game. Your way of doing the ads almost feels like you are punishing those who don’t pay to remove them rather than rewarding those who do. I spent more time watching ads than actually playing your game. It should never be that way. I’m not the only one who feels this way. There are several other reviewers who felt your ads were too much and ruined their experience. I’ve seen fewer ads on a news station in a swing state near the end of an election year than in your game. —Original Review— Was cool until the ads started popping up. Then I deleted it. Wish people would just go back to banner ads only.
As free version is not really ad free
by Rdavis1228 on 2018/10/05 18:16
I loved this game and bought the ad free version so I could play continuously. But I still had to either buy more tokens to keep playing or sit through long ad times in order to continue to play. Even in the same puzzle I would have to sit through minutes long ads about 4-5 times so I could shuffle the letters when no more words could be found. Sometimes I could only solve 1 word before I had to shuffle again. I can’t afford to buy that many tokens and I am frustrated with have to sit through the same ads over and over to be able to shuffle for free. Like so many great games before this one I will delete this game and be sure to not recommend it to anyone. My friends and family mean too much to me to deceive them
Too many ads
by bchlfe on 2019/04/07 17:51
I wrote a review on this game but when the developer contacted me by email with their explanation there was a hyperlink asking if I wanted to update my review. I clicked on it and now my review is gone. My initial review was ....although I liked the game, after playing a little and getting to around level 13????? The ads started big time. Every other play they popped up. I understand why they have ads and I am ok with them, just not ok to every other play. This is the response I got from the developer "........................... "Dear player, we're so sorry for your bad feelings caused by the ads. Advertisements are an important support for us to keep updating and offer free puzzles to players. Please be aware that you can remove the interstitial ads by purchasing the REMOVE ADS feature. Meanwhile, all the ads that between levels could be closed or skipped after a few seconds. All your suggestions have been forwarded to our group and if you need any help, please feel free to email us Again, I have no problem with ads on free games, just a problem EVERY OTHER PLAY (turn) with yes is a new level.
Slow go words
by Olehippiegal on 2019/02/23 16:47
The game just wants you to spend money for coins because you will need them to shuffle the words when your stuck. Or you can watch a 40 second ad which most of the time it is in the circle of death and you can't watch the ad because yet again it's trying to get you to spend real money for coins to shuffle. And you will have to shuffle sometimes on 1 game 2 or 3 times at 120 coins each shuffle. Even if you restart the game I It lines up the letters the exact way again. Waste of time 2nd review again The only way to shuffle the letters is if you have coins. But if you rather watch a 40 sec ad it will shuffle for you. I don't mine watching ads but for the past 5 weeks there have been no ads to watch. It just stays in the circle of death and says Check back later you can't watch an ad at this time. Why doesn't the developer fix this. Going to find another game cuz I am not spending real money for this game that stays stuck all the time. February 2019 update Thank you for lowering the price of coins to shuffle the puzzle. It was 120 coins and now it's 50 coins that's great.

Too many and too long ads.

Ads ads ads ads oh, and ads
by John _Space on 2019/09/18 06:50
OMG - latest update to “enhance user experience” was to add additional ads on the daily challenge - now includes 3 double ads and 5 seriously lame games. Isn’t the ads on the screen at all times enough?
Word town ads
by Alphiebug on 2019/09/18 04:06
Ads are sooo long and numerous for these short little puzzles. Annoying
Deleted it
by mjterpaz on 2019/09/16 22:24
I loved this app, then I was doing a puzzle today and when I got the words “overweight, pudgy” and then “lazy.” I deleted the puzzle. I don’t want any of my kids doing puzzles that encourage negative stereotypes
More ads than game
by GuessOhio on 2019/09/16 17:46
There are TWO ADS FOR EVERY GAME. this is crazy and not worth the time. The 2nd one goes 30-60seconds.
Ads ruin it
by FedUpAlready on 2019/09/16 12:17
They have changed this so that now when you successfully complete the daily puzzle you MUST sit through an ad or it won’t log your win. Not cool. Done playing until this is fixed. Bye.

So far plays well
New update not great
by Ange1 Baby on 2019/09/15 15:53
Would’ve given it five stars except for the newest update Newest update is not the greatest please bring back ‘spin’ for daily coins instead of three colorful boxes - spin with option to do additional spin was more fun Now when completing the daily game a video ad pops up before you can see what the title of the puzzle was And it’s not worth watching the ad just to see the title
Great game but a glitch
by ClinB on 2019/09/15 11:03
I’ve played this game for at least a couple years. Always worked perfectly. Enjoy the daily game. Lately I’ve played the same games repeatedly.
Too many ads
by blast2459 on 2019/09/15 06:51
Good app BUT too many ADS
Too many ads
by leanneqt on 2019/09/13 04:01
Fun and pretty easy game, but the higher the levels the more ads I have to watch. I seem to spend more time watching ads than actually playing and I won’t pay for this. Bye-bye Word Town.
Love this game, but have a question
by Bookman58 on 2019/09/12 04:14
This has become my favorite game in years. Some puzzles I get right away and others I have to do again and again. But I NEVER shuffle, there is always a way to win each level if you persevere, I love that about it. However, I paid right away for the game and to remove the ads. Now I’m at level 640 and the ads have returned. I don’t have to pay again, do I?
Ads ads and more ads
by Boogmama on 2019/09/08 22:53
I really liked the free version of this game but the ads were irritating. I went ahead and spent the $2.99, no problem. Funny, now I seem to always get into a situation where you can’t continue unless...you pay for coins or watch an ad. I’m watching more ads now than with that free version. Shame, I really wanted to like this game :0( Edit: Thanks for responding. I really do love this game.
Liked Game. Hate stupid commercial
by Ficcon on 2019/09/06 12:42
I liked the game but tired of seeing Choice advertisement after every round. Guess I’m done with this game.
Play for 10-15 seconds, get a 45 second ad! 😭
by PJCESQ on 2019/09/02 10:54
Sure the game is ok. I don’t really like wordfind games but this one is a little different. I would keep it if not for the incessant ads. Each game takes 10 to 15 seconds to complete and then you get an ad for up to 45 seconds. After I got this twice in a row, I said goodbye. There are in-game apps (typical coin buying nonsense) and these annoying ads. So, after ten minutes, I deleted it.
Exciting Game!

Too many ads
by AudioMoney on 2019/08/25 22:13
You start a level, you get an ad. You answered a text, you get an ad. You stick around too long on a level, you get an ad. Long story short, this game has more adds than game play. It’s sad because the game is pretty solid, and I get the developers need to make money. It’s just too many ads.
Great Game
by setsw on 2019/08/25 03:13
I am getting hooked on this game.
Ads and more ads
by picardone on 2019/08/25 01:25
When I first downloaded the game the ads were not to bad. But as time went on they came more frequently. Now every time I start a new game and need to check something else on my tablet and come back to finish the game I am forced to watch another ad. Three times during one game is ridiculous. I get they need ads but really!! Guess what!! After writing this review I went back to my game. They same one I have already watched three ads on I was forced to watch a forth one. I am uninstalling. Other than the ads its a good game.
Ads

Don't like the new changes
by whatever709 on 2019/08/24 11:07
I've been playing this app daily for about a year. I enjoyed earning the monthly-changing magnets, but the recent changes removed this incentive and replaced it with a calendar. Please change it back!
Great game

by phokisd on 2019/08/21 19:06
Love the game, just one request! Please bring back the original slower, calmer music that was played before the update..it was literally the most relaxing moments of my day and I really appreciated the tranquility of it. The new upbeat music is nice but could it be an option to switch settings to the other one possibly? Otherwise, the update was great. Such a beautiful game, thank you!
Daily puzzle
by Nomad Gene on 2019/08/21 18:13
Really like the game ,but my wife and I used to race the daily puzzle. Now we each get a different one.🙁 can’t race anymore.
Hate to see you go but...
by Hahjddvjj on 2019/08/21 00:36
I’ve played this game for several months and I loved it. That is until the latest upgrade, now I hate playing this game. It’s almost impossible to complete a single puzzle without shuffling over and over again because the words are so difficult to find. And why do I have to complete an entire month on the daily puzzles to get coins. It’s not enjoyable anymore, just frustrating...
Great game

I enjoy the mystery of no knowing the subject but there are way too many ads.

Daily bonus
by VeganGal on 2019/08/16 15:34
I really like the update to the daily bonuses with the exception of the additional coins when you watch a video. Since the update I have not been able to get the additional coins for the daily bonus. When I click the button it either goes to a black screen where I have to restart the game or tells me no videos are available. I’d rather see this option go away than waste time with the glitches. If you need to know I have an iPhone running iOS 12.4. Thanks.
Update makes ads invasive
by Poopface32 on 2019/08/15 02:00
I understand if I’m not going to pay for a game I will have ads. When I first loaded the game a few months ago I got addicted and, even though there was and ad between every game, I tolerated it. Now there has been an update and the ads are out of control. I get interrupted in the middle of a game to watch ads and there is a constant add at the bottom of the screen. I only play one game a day now because I get so frustrated being sent to an add while I’m in the middle of a game. I’m about to delete the app.
Noise
by hey❗️ on 2019/08/13 22:40
Game is ok. I play on silent. All your adds play sounds. Some you can mute some you cannot. Mute your adds or I’ll drop this for 1 of 50 other, similar, word games.
No Clues
by FairyPryncess on 2019/08/13 05:28
For each level it is hard to find words because there is no theme. For example if the puzzle is about 🐶 there is no way of knowing this, because it is not given at the start of the puzzle. So you have no idea what words to 👀 for. Only after the words are found the theme appears. You spend too much time looking for words & are totally lost of what words to look for. Would help if there was some sort of hint on what type of words too look for. Also the ads are too long & after every level. The letters at the bottom are too close to the icons & one could accidentally touch the button and lose coins.
Not the game advertised?
by Lexitron95 on 2019/08/12 15:56
The game is okay. But it is not the game that was advertised. I clicked on an ad thinking it was the game shown in their advertisement and when you download the game it’s a completely different game. I’ve read a few other reviews saying they experienced the same thing so I know it’s not just my mistake. They need to fix this, because it’s kind of false advertisement?
Fun until I got tired of guessing the word order
by 4nicknamestaken on 2019/08/11 21:14
Enjoyed until level 307 and then I just got frustrated guessing the word order. It wasn’t fun anymore .
Disappointed
by lovemyFinn on 2019/08/11 15:45
They just changed the daily game to resemble the regular game. The daily game used to be so fun. I played it every morning. It never let you run out of words and have to start over. I will no longer be playing this game.
Not what it seems
by CallMeMaybee on 2019/08/10 17:33
I thought it was going to be a word match to a picture game. Not what is advertised.

by JanLynneDowe on 2019/07/30 12:39
I love this game. It is just the right amount of challenging. Only drawback I see to this game is that there are way too many ads. I understand you need ads to help pay for the game, but a 15 to 30 second ad at the end of every level gets really annoying

by nancyadair on 2019/07/22 20:08
I enjoy this game. But some of the ads are a real problem. I was assailed by an ad for a Sniper game that I found disturbing. A word game for all ages should not have this kind of ad.
Not Challenging Effort
by DCGIANTS on 2019/07/20 14:02
These puzzles are too freaking easy. I’ve accumulated over 4500 coins which indicates to me that the puzzles are easy. I do not need to purchase any coins. Also, the developers should consider posting high scores or high levels of other app participants. I like to compare myself to others. Probably will delete this app eventually if it does not challenge me in the future.
Disturbing ads
by kc-sunshine on 2019/07/18 14:56
Dear developer, very disappointed in the most recent ads stream.I love your game but I am ready to delete it. I am repeatedly getting an ad for the matchington mansion game and find the ads offensive and disturbing. Today there was a character sitting on the TOILET. And the game is violent (death, fires, and more) I understand the use of ads to generate revenue, but you will lose your audience if these ads continue. I am ready to remove your app. I followed the directions in your response to this review to contact you through the app. Received a response that others have complained. Opened your app and the SAME OFFENSIVE Ad popped up.

Shuffle denied
by Musdean on 2018/10/29 22:05
I’d like to say straight out that I love this game. Some of the words are easily found but others require multiple shuffles. I can see some words that would be successful but can’t get to them without a shuffle. But when I go to reshuffle, the free button shuffle is darkened and I am unable to continue. How many times are you allowed to shuffle before you are denied? If I don’t have the coins necessary (for whatever reason)to purchase what is a person to do? While I hate the adds that are a part of the shuffle, I should not be limited to the number of times I choose to invoke the free shuffle. As a second thought, perhaps the adds could be rotated so one doesn’t have view the same add 6 times in a row. If I already have the game being advertised, or I’m not interested in the game, I shouldn’t have to watch the same add. Change it up each time. Except for these issues, this is really a fun game. The word categories are not easily guessed which makes the search even more challenging. Fix the advertising issue and I give it a 5+. For now it’s a 4.

Wonderful exceptional brain powered game; however, beginning to agree w/review regarding to ads.... I enjoy them - they gives a lil break into the game and intro to new games as design to do but way too long. Although ads servers it’s purpose but it also create boredom because the interest is lost while waiting especially if it’s a game that’s downloaded. In which I often switch to another game-but it’s 2-3 weeks/ months before I play Word Town. A repeated cycle eventually it may come to deleting a wonderful game. It’s intensified then you need to shuffle w/ little coins therefore you watch an ad instead that seems like eternity because the excitement of completing the board now stress is created- that defeat the purpose of relaxing and feeding the brain. Suggestion; shorten the ads and/or increase more ways to earn coins. 120 a pop goes fast when u excited and don’t won’t the wait. Uncertain w/this game offer buying ads free but the ads frustration prompts purchase- but too many similar games to download opposing to purchase nevertheless a wonderful game.
Too many ads
by PlainlyBlunt on 2018/08/25 21:40
I Removed the game within hours of downloading it to my phone. Every word search required shuffling the puzzle’s letters - to line up as words. Each shuffle sends you to a pop-up with option to use 120 coins or “remove free”. It is not “free” because I spent 30-60 seconds on each word watching ads to download the same three games repeatedly - so it has a time loss factor cost. If you close the ad you lose the new shuffle that arranges the letters into recognizable words. Time is valuable, relaxing while playing a game should not require watching 30 seconds - one minute for almost every shuffle of letters to shift into place. Sometimes I had to do 4 shuffles to completely get letters in word form, for one word. Depending on the number of words in a particular word search you can spend 3-5 minutes solving a short 5-8 word search puzzle. If the purpose is for users to buy coins, or what ever, after downloading, be up front on the App download - say so! My recommendation is do not waste your time downloading this game if you are not interested in wasting more time waiting and watching dis-interesting ads, repeatedly, encouraging you to download more of the same type time-wasting games, or paying to remove ads. Glad I kept my paper word search books!
Word Town
by Sam Houston 13 on 2018/11/07 05:21
Just started playing, but so far, so good. Playing has been lots of fun, but since m not certain why you get the puzzle name, like “Things with wings”, after you have finished the puzzle. It would be more beneficial to know the puzzle theme so you would know what kind of words to look for. So far, that’s not been a problem; but later on, as the puzzles become more difficult, it could make thing dicey. Right now, when I find a word that is a legal word, but not part of the theme name, the game puts those words in a list for later, when I can convert them into coins. I’m always ok with getting extra coins, but I think knowing the theme would be more helpful as time goes on & the difficulty degree advances. Even so, it is a fun game and one I would recommend. In fact, I have my husband playing it right now. How can you loose when you can increase your vocabulary & have fun while you’re doing it!
“No more words”??
by If.Maggie.Dies.We.Riot on 2019/01/19 06:39
I love the whole game, without the ads of course. I had to remove them because they were so annoying and in front. One ad was at the bottom of the page, flashing. I couldn’t stand it and that commercial showed up EVERYTIME I opened the app. But what gets me the most— the fact that a game runs out of words and you have to watch a video or spend coins to shuffle the tiles.. WHY?! It’s not MY fault that I’m not finding words in the order that the game wants me to. And that’s not even how a real crossword puzzle works. There is NO excuse for having to restart the level or forcing someone to either spend coins or watch an ad just to shuffle the tiles because they didn’t find words in the ‘correct’ order you wanted them to. The shuffle should be free, period. ESPECIALLY when there’s “no more words”. Other than that, I like the game. I just really hate the fact I have to watch a video to shuffle the tiles just because I found another word before the others. I hope that gets fixed in the future because now I’m getting that message on (yes, literally) every single level that I play.
Sold Out to Advertisers
by ChicagoMeg on 2019/01/01 19:46
The purpose of this app is to find words among the letters. You find words vertically or horizontally, but not diagonally. You watch sit through a game app advertisement video before every game. Note that very often the letters must be shuffled because the order they are in does not create any words. To reshuffle the letters, you must either use your coins or watch a video. The video at the beginning of each game is usually longer than the game. Being required to watch multiple videos to finish a game means you will spend more time watching ads then you will finding the words. There are only a handful of advertisers, so you end up watching the same advertisement constantly. The designers of this app may or may not have noticed how ridiculously long most of the ads are. Some ads don’t even allow you to opt out of them before you start your game. You can press the ‘x’ to opt out over and over, yet it will not function. That’s a sneaky & nasty little programming maneuver by the advertisers. I long for the days when I could pay for a game app but, alas, this app designer has sold out to the advertisers. I will delete this app after this review.
Suggestion: I am addicted to this game
by Tenaj06 on 2018/12/10 18:14
Hey...love the game and addicted to it. I’ve been playing for a few weeks now up to level 500s. Yeah there are ads but what do you expect, the game is free to play plus it’s more entertaining than some games we pay for. Some ads are useful...anyway. I came up with an idea and I hope it can be implemented. Why not give additional coins for guessing the puzzle theme? Not verbatim but start with like 25 coins for guessing the theme after completing 2 words then the coin value decreases as more words are revealed. That’s one challenge. Just trying to think of more ways to get coins especially since it costs 80 coins per hint. Also, have another daily challenge and timed puzzle challenges for additional coins. That’s all I can think of...can anyone else think of anything? Let’s try to help, think of solutions for our criticisms/complaints. Thanks...Tenaj’
Enjoyable
by b.kovacs on 2019/01/31 18:42
I really enjoy this game. I even suggested to my sister and she is enjoying it as well. I have some confusion on people complaining about having to shuffle. I think I have only used that option a couple of times. Why? You may be asking (or not) it is because I use the other choice of restarting that particular level. I already know some or most of the words, so by restarting I can now do them in a different order to find the word that I missed that made the puzzle not work right the first time. It really doesn’t take that much longer. Also, the ads...well some of them...can be skipped after a few seconds, as there is a double “arrow” or ff symbol >> in either the upper right or left corner when you tap on the ad, touch that symbol and it takes you to the end of the ad. Thanks for this fun game! Loves word games
Don’t waste your time
by omgwhocaresjustletmepost on 2019/02/10 06:46
I found this game in an advertisement in another game. THIS game is not at all how it was advertised in the OTHER game I was playing. It actually looked interesting in the ad of the OTHER game. Then there’s the matter of ads on THIS game... There aren’t any more annoying ads here than there are on another other game but I’m saying this because the game still has potential (even though the advertisement for it was a lie). Don’t bombard people with stupid ads every 30 seconds. I get that games like this earn their money by ads but it makes the players hate the game in the end, which will result in deleting. (And Yes, I deleted both this game and the game I found the ad on). And maybe that’s the goal of game devs who earn money from ads— to entice people to get their games with false ads, pelt them with other false ads once they get the game then repeat. But if you want a meaningful game that people would actually be willing to pay for and give you money that you deserve, I’d suggest fixing these problem. Not that I have any stakes in this, I just deleted the game. It’s just a tip.
Constant Ads 😠
by Ty's Miho on 2019/01/10 11:57
I write this review as my last move before removing this game. I usually don’t write reviews but am doing so in hopes of the possibility of helping others not fall into the trap of downloading this app. No game should be completely reliant on either your endless purchases or having to watch endless ads. I enjoyed the game itself but if you find yourself at an impasse, which can happen often (it’s part of the format), then you must purchase help or watch ads. In watching the ads you are also forced to listen as well even if you have turned sounds off in the app and in your settings, this app overrides all settings. Having sounds on through ridiculous ads is not just annoying but a complete intrusion of the individuals personal choices and rights. I’ve tried to stay with the game for several months thinking that it may evolve as you level up, it does not, it actually seems worse. There are a lot of other apps to choose from, if you are allowed to read this review I strongly recommend that you choose one of those others.
It’s fun
by Pander is #1 on 2019/04/19 12:23
Nice game fun to play, but can be challenging at times especially when the word clue for the category does not match with the what the actual words may be. I got one where the clue was petroleum. The words however were kind, loving, generous, and positive words like that which unless petroleum has other meanings that I’ve never heard of obviously didn’t match. This has happened quite a few times. I understand mistakes can have, but it’s been getting more frequent. Someone needs to pay a little more attention before releasing certain levels. Anyways still like playing and will continue to do so. Even with the abundance of ads, but that’s what you get if you don’t wanna pony up the dough. Besides my son likes doing the ads that you can actually demo so it works out.
Can’t begin to have fun
by Overtasker on 2018/09/07 22:19
It would be fun if I didn’t have to watch ads or pay to get the category clue. Not only do you have to choose to pay or watch for the category, you do the same for a shuffle, and I am assuming for a hint as well. In addition to the ads you can choose to watch, there are the random pop up ads which seem to get more frequent as I play. And if I pause play to say go take care of my kids, or dinner, or laundry etc., when I come back to the game, there’s always another ad to watch before I can even begin to play. It doesn’t matter if I watched one at the beginning of the round before I left! I will be deleting this game. Wordscapes is much more fun with less ads. And getting rid of ads was cheaper on that game too, they sold coins and helps with the ad removal. I just can’t justify paying for ad removal for every game but I play that one so much we did. I’m rating it 2 stars because it would be fun if it weren’t for all the ads.
More Ads Than Humans Should Tolerate!
by Shiggitee on 2018/09/01 00:38
Of the dozens and dozens of game apps I have, the game play on this one is really at the top. It’s fun and challenging and I would have given it 5 stars...except for the horrible ads! I understand and support completely the value of advertising/commerce in gaming; however, this is excessive imo. I have no other app that has this level of ad activity. Starting a game, restarting a game, ending a game, winning a game...everything cues an ad. A loud, annoying, multi-part ad which means you have to turn off your phone sound completely or play the game only when you’re alone or in a place that is noisy already. I’m not opposed to paying for ad-free, but it doesn’t seem as though there are very many “towns”/levels to travel through before the game is completed, so I’m not sure it’s worth it. A shame, since this is really a clever game and fun to play...if you can survive the ad assaults!
Ads ugh
by trixieloo52 on 2019/02/20 21:40
I agree with everyone else about the ads. I understand that They are needed as are commercials on TV, but some of them are so long and as one reviewer said, you get so annoyed that you go to a different game or to Facebook or whatever. I do like the updates with a lot more options to earn coins. That is wonderful. I also like the fact that you can find more words for extra points, previously if the word was already found you couldn’t find it again. At some point there would never be any more new words to find, hence no coins. So that was a great update. I know you can pay to have no ads, but there’s no way on earth I’m going to pay for that. That would be cuckoo. Anyway I absolutely love this game and I do it every day.
Ads to Shuffle the Letters!? Bonus Words Awarded Once
by sora.sp on 2018/09/04 06:46
I really loved this game until I started running into a problem. I’d find several words, then there would be no more potential word to find and I had to watch an ad or pay coins to shuffle the letters so I could continue. I think it’s very poor game design. It doesn’t happen every once in a while, but every other game I play or more! I don’t want to sit and watch ads all day or pay a triple the coins I get for completing a level to shuffle the letters. It’s also frustrating that once you find a bonus word, you can’t ever find it again and get credit for it. It makes it discouraging to find a word, get excited, then find out it’s just a bonus word you’ve already found and you get no credit for it. Like, c’mon. I’m deleting the game because the annoyance isn’t worth the game play. I hope I can find a similar game without the same annoyances and poor design.
Love the idea BUT...
by Jshcljgjgokufoydiyfludoy on 2018/08/14 20:41
Absolutely love the idea and the gameplay. Very clever. But I have just one concern. I really dislike apps like these that make you PAY to get rid of advertisements. Look, I’m no expert in games but I do know that there are plenty of other ways to have a successful game then this pay for no ads strategy. I’d rather have you increase the ads then having to pay to banish them if you guys are THAT anxious to put ads in. So I leave you with one question, will you be the first to have a successful game while ALSO finding a better and officiant way to put ads in. That’s up to you, but I high HIGHLY recommend you banish this obnoxious ads strategy. Anyway keep up the good work and try to be the first to stop this. Thank you and goodbye!
Fun - turned irritating
by Overtasker on 2018/09/08 13:25
AllI get a free games. So I understand your desire to get a little money from the ads. But this games has the most ridiculous amount of ads I have ever seen! If it weren’t for the ads this ap would be a five star. Because of the ads, word scapes is much more fun to play. And I think you earn coins faster because I have plenty (at the moment) to buy hints. I did pay for ad removal on that game because the purchase also came with coins and some hints so it was a super good deal. I also play two dots which has an occasional optional pop up ad that gives you a help prize. And you know what, I usually watch them so I can get the prize. They don’t come up very often and you can choose not to do it. So it’s still fun. I will be deleting this game because of the ads. Maybe in the future you can update the ap using some or all of these ideas and let me know and I’ll give it another try. For now it’s back to word scapes so I can actually have fun playing.
Good game, way to many ads
by Methinkest on 2019/05/11 06:06
The game is okay. Find words, like a word search, but without the words listed near the puzzle. Once you find them, it gives you category that they all fit in. It would be more interesting if they showed the words, and you had to guess what they had in common, the category. Why I gave the game 3 stars was the ads. Geez, you play for 10 seconds and then have an ad. That is too many. The creators would have more people staying on their app if they would allow for 5,7,8, or 10 levels pass before an add. Give the player some time to play the game. The ads are longer than the playtime. Apparently they can create games, but din’t know how to please their customers. It’s aggravating enough that I don’t want to spend my time playing. I will check back in a few weeks to see if the listened.
Fun game
by hsh09 on 2018/09/15 05:42
The game’s a lot of fun, but having clues for each level automatically visible as opposed to something players must buy would be a big improvement. I found myself quickly having to blindly choose words I saw and just hope they were part of the list, because I didn’t know what group I was looking for, and I didn’t want to buy the clue. Don’t misunderstand, I still very much enjoy the game, but this will limit the amount of time I will play it; and the idea is just something for the developers to consider. I know you need to make money, too, but, surely, there’s a better option than making the players pay for general clues each level.
Love this game!
by CrazySulli on 2018/11/23 15:09
It has a couple things that I wish were better. For example, if you want to re-scramble the letters in a puzzle you must either pay 120 coins or watch an ad. The ads are long and sometimes difficult to bring up. And if you continually pay the coins, it requires you purchase coins which is expensive. And your reward for working a group of puzzles is only 50 coins, which makes it impossible to replenish your usage. I am really addicted to this game though. And it will help you grow your vocabulary and general knowledge. I keep a dictionary handy to research those words I don’t recognize. I highly recommend this game for your education! Be careful—-it does become addictive!
Good way to exercise your mind
by TheClaireBear23 on 2018/12/20 12:48
The game is imperfect but enjoyable. There is a solution for each level that can be attained without spending coins or watching an ad, just restart and try again. I won't write a commentary on society's need for instant gratification but truly, if the game wasn't challenging, what would be the point? It isn't always easy to find the correct solution and I've spent several intervals of several minutes trying to determine where the next word would be. I love the daily puzzle the most. It looks so difficult but once you get started, it's typically more easily solved than the regular levels. I'm almost to the end of the levels and find myself not happy about that.
Sooooooooo fun
by coins are my love on 2019/01/30 23:16
I love it so much because you level up after you figure out a puzzle it’s so much fun I could spend 500 hours on this game if I could(but my mom wouldn’t let me of course) I recommend everybody to this fun learning games you can jumble-words and earn a good zillion coins a day and it’s free that’s the best part I recommend this the best game in App Store this is my first day playing this and I’ve already earned like a good jillion coins and I’m already on level like 500 I recommendEverybody to get their vocabulary running in just a few minutes come on I believe in you I wish you could make something like this but a crossword puzzle kind of game I am a big fan of your work (now)Love you you’re so amazing
Good game, but.....
by GG Dreamer on 2019/03/15 07:38
For the most part this is a very good game. I love puzzles and this is my new favorite. The content and design are great. There are tons of ads, but since I refuse to pay anything to play games, you learn to deal with them. The ads do give you plenty of opportunities to earn free coins that you can use for hints and reshuffles. The only thing about the game that totally doesn’t make sense is that it doesn’t automatically give you the theme of the puzzle. Just another way for them to charge you coins. What is the reason for this? I’d like know. In one update they changed this to be automatic. It was great. Then in the next update they took it away. To me, this should be a given. If there were any reason that I’d quit the game and delete the app, this would be it. This is also the only reason for my 3 star review.
Finally found a word stack game **updated
by Ldawson687 on 2019/02/21 01:40
I just downloaded and started playing..so far so good. I have been looking for a game like this for a while. I am addicted . The ads don’t bother me....they are not as long as some other games I have played. The only complaint is I wish each level told you the theme without having to use a booster. Unless I am missing something you don’t find out the theme until you have won the level. I am assuming as the levels get harder it will be good to know the theme. **update** thank you for telling us the theme of the level. It makes it much more fun (for me anyway) to have a clue what to look for. Love that his game!
Fun but annoying
by Rebel869 on 2018/06/11 21:14
This is a fun game but a bit annoying. I don’t like the fact that the clues are all boosters that you have to pay for. For example the category clue is something you have to use your coins as well shuffling the tiles. Also the ads are very intrusive and last the 30 seconds not just 10 like other games. Again you have to pay money to get rid of it. They do have the feature that you can watch an ad to get a free booster which is nice. Another thing I didn’t like was when you are stuck or don’t know your next move there’s no way to restart and there’s no way to know if you’re on right path. It would be nice if there was a prompt saying “you're out of moves please use 1 of the boosters” Other than that it’s a fun game to pass the time
Don’t waste $ to “Remove Ads”
by Tcouture1 on 2019/01/05 14:51
I played for a short time with no shuffle issues. I would find all of the words, watch the video ad and move on to the next puzzle. Because I really enjoy this game, but was really tired of watching videos.... I paid the $2.99 to remove ads. Then the game changed! And I’m certain it was developed this way! Before I went ad free, I never “had” to shuffle, unless I chose to. Now that I have removed the ads, I am forced to to shuffle on every other game in order to find the remaining words. I must watch a 30 second video, restart the game or pay the coins. I want to use my coins on hints... not shuffling. There was “never” a “need” to shuffle before I removed the ads. And that is why I believe the game was developed this way. Paying the $2.99 does not remove the ads. It just changes the game.
Would give a 4 except for the ADS!
by ElCheapador on 2018/10/12 15:47
I paid the $2.99 for the game to be “ad free”. While it’s true I no longer have an annoying wait for an ad to run between every game, I am still forced to watch ads or pay more money if I need to shuffle the letters. Annoying. But not half as annoying as the fact that there is absolutely NO WAY to turn the sound off of the annoying ads!! It’s infuriating. So forget trying to play the game in bed at night while another person tries to sleep next to you. There should be an option to turn ALL SOUND off the game so you can play silently. Most of the ads only have music so there is no needs for the sound to come on. For the love of all things good and holy, change your game so that muting sounds and music in the settings mutes ALL sounds and music. Otherwise it’s a fun game.
Too many ads
by Trish1a on 2018/09/14 13:53
I agree with the above reviewer that paying to disable ads needs to be a thing of the past. Paying for coins is no good either. I also feel that watching ads in order to get coins is ok but if the game requires too many coins to move it forward then decreasing the amount of coins needed is what is necessary. While I found the game enjoyable, having to watch several ads in order to get enough coins to make the game progress was too much. A game should only take a few minutes to progress to the next part of the city, but due to the number of ads I had to watch, it was taking about a half hour to progress to the next part of the city. I’ve deleted this app because I just don’t have the time to watch so many ads.
Fun but way too many Ads
by Rolf D on 2018/12/06 23:29
This game is fun and challenging, which I like. But, has way too many Ads, which pisses me off. May or may not keep because I’m increasingly getting sick of the Ads! Read your reply which isn’t exactly accurate as you suggest that I pay for no ads subscription, which in another post you state that some free features still come with ads with a no ads subscription. Also, your game has excessive ads. I do not pay for games so I expect ads, your game is excessive and shows your greed. If you want to address so many complaints on the ads, get rid of 50% of them. Some of your responses to your customers are not even on point making me wonder if your read the concern or if you are just deflecting without any intention of making your customers happy. Come on, you can do better!
Would have been 4 except for:
by Illinois frustrated on 2018/11/05 04:14
Screen freezes up when the “out of words” screen appears. The watch ad option twirls around and cannot be accessed. If I choose restart, the same thing happens when I again am out of words. Of course the pay to scramble option always works, but will run out of coins fast that way. And—of course there are way too many ads that are way too long. Having to wait a few seconds isn’t too bad, but 25+ is ridiculous. The game is very fun & challenging, but I will not pay, so if I cannot choose the option to watch an ad, I will not pay. Another pet peeve: I have sound turned off so can play when my husband is sleeping, yet the ads all come on with sound. What good is that?! And so annoying. Does not make me want to consider any of what’s being advertised.
Not sure how developers response, relates to my problem
by Russell32! on 2018/11/14 20:20
I found it highly annoying that I could not use the shuffle and clue features while fying in airplane mode. I thought I’d break up my 12 hr transatlantic flight by playing a few games, but nope! Requires an internet connection, to shuffle, or get hint, even when no moves are available. When I went back to check data usage of this app (when internet was available), I was appalled by the volume. Even though I’m a paid user, time for me to uninstall. Developers response: "Dear player, we're so sorry for your bad feelings caused by the ads. Actually, all the ads that between levels could be closed or skipped after 5-10 seconds. You can also remove them by purchasing the REMOVE ADS feature. If you would like to continue this game, just feel free to email us and we can help recover your game data.❤️"
I love this game but the ads are ruining it
by TT from Seattle on 2019/01/31 02:03
I’ve been playing this game for a while and have really enjoyed it. However, the last few days I’m annoyed that it interrupts my game and forces me to shuffle or restart. This is a horrible feature! I’ve been dealing with all the ads, literally after every single puzzle there is an ad. Now, to get interrupted in the middle of your game and be forced to restart or watch yet another add to shuffle is ruining this game for me. I’m to the point where I am about to delete this game because it’s not worth it anymore. I understand how ads work and they are necessary for free games. I’m dealing with all the ads, but interrupting someone’s game for more ads is over the top. I would gladly give the game itself 5 stars but the amount of ads and the game interruption gets 2 stars.
It’s cute?
by the casual procrastinator on 2018/09/24 00:44
It’s got all the pieces of a very nice time-eating game. Pretty pictures, the obligatory coin system, sounds that make you feel like you accomplished something and the option to get rid of adds for a simple fee. However, it would be a lot nicer if two things were fixed. One, after you complete a level an add plays, no biggie there, but I can vaguely hear an ending sequence to the level playing under the add, maybe put a pause on that till the add is done or something?? And two: the app still crashes about every 1-5 minutes. One time I had the sound turned up and as the app crashed I heard this weird noise that sounded like an old box television on the static channel. Slightly disconcerting coming from an iPhone.
Freezing
by DaWGrim2323 on 2018/08/26 21:34
I like the game - interesting and fun. However, it is hard to earn points. I completed some frames, and got no points because it simply had no embedded coins. You have to earn points by finding words that are not the key words, collect them in the suitcase, and know enough to empty the suitcase into your points total. It should be automatic. Second, there are issues when some of the ads start and it freezes the app. I think the only way to cure that is to quit the game. If you wait long enough, hopefully the issue gets cleared. But there is also the possibility that you don’t come back.
Fun! But needs dictionary update

This is fun and sometimes challenging, but needs a couple of tweaks. I’d like to see more of a challenge in the regular levels like that found in the daily challenge. The number of ads is a bit over the top, and the same 30-second ads are replayed continuously (if I didn’t want that app the first time, I probably wouldn’t want it the 15th time either!) The dictionary needs to be updated. Words like “mete”, “hod”, and “tare” are not accepted as extra words, yet obscure words such as “carr”, and “mus” are accepted. And then there are words such as “ture”, which are not complete words at all, yet they are accepted as extra words. Overall, I’d RECOMMEND if you can overlook these small idiosyncrasies.
Should have read the reviews
by Sparky sharky on 2019/01/05 12:50
So many of the reviews mention the annoying point that I’m at in the game. I paid to remove the ads, now when I’m “out of words” it makes me either “pay more money” or “watch a 30 second ad. Can’t believe; 1- that I didn’t read the reviews before buying because many customers complain of this same thing, so that’s on me, and 2- that you actually do that to your customers. “Extorting” your customer with a mandated “in app purchase” or forcing them to “watch an ad” to continue is really disgraceful. This is a simple game, with simple back grounds and a simple challenge to it. To extort more money or time, via forcing your customers to watch ads to continue to play, is very dishonest and the person(s) in the Conference room that made these group decisions should be fired.
Fun game but way too many ads.
by bodajr on 2018/10/31 00:42
I love this game style. It’s challenging and probably a little better for the brain than bubble popping games. I would give this app 5 stars but for one thing: A ridiculous amount of ads. I realize free games need ads to support them and I don’t begrudge that. This app, however, sets new records on ad quantity. Ads to start a game, ads to go to new level, but most annoyingly, ads to reshuffle letters when no words can be made. It’s either that or spend the “coins” you earn by completing levels. Once you get to advanced levels this happens nearly every game! In my view, the letters should automatically reshuffle if no matches can be made. Every other game I have works that way.
Offensive ad
by The Bible Girls on 2018/09/09 22:24
I have enjoyed this game, as evidenced by the amount of time I have spent playing it—reached level 418 despite the overload of ads. Today I regretfully deleted it due to the appearance of an ad for the “Choices” game, which I find totally inappropriate for an otherwise family friendly game. Not only am I offended by the preview of the game, it is not something I want my 10-year-old granddaughter to see as she looks over my shoulder and offers suggestions. I have deleted other games I liked upon the appearance of this ad, and will continue to do so whenever this offensive ad appears.
Unavoidable Pop Up and Way to Many Ads
by Qrstwre on 2018/11/28 12:56
Even if you pay to remove the ads, you receive an “out of words” pop up which requires either 100 coins, watching a 60+ second ad or restarting the game. If you restart the game, the same pop up appears unless you find words in a different sequence. This pop up is now appearing multiple times in a single game so using coins only works for awhile. This is a real distraction from game play and seems both unavoidable and more pervasive as you progress to the higher levels. I like the game. It’s a little more complex than others as it does not provide the genre unless you use a hint. I am currently at level 250. I have installed a competitors game because it does not have this annoying pop up.
More ads than playing time
by NWILgal on 2019/03/28 05:17
I tried this game for a couple of days and found that I was immensely frustrated by the number of reasons the game found for me to have to watch an ad and by the unreasonable length of those ads as well as the mind-numbing lack of variety in said ads. I won the first dozen or so games in fairly rapid succession and was awarded some coins. Then the game suddenly began to require shuffles; I began to run out of words every game. I studied the playing board very carefully after this happened several times in a row, and I respectfully disagree with the developer’s contention that clearing words in the correct order will always allow you to solve the puzzle without a shuffle. I’ve found more entertaining, less frustrating games and will be deleting this one from my device.
Fun yet disappointing!
by Mash Mart on 2018/10/29 03:04
Overall, a very entertaining game, but the high volume of ads surely takes away from the fun. The worst one is the “out of words” screen that pops up in every new puzzle that forces you to watch an ad or use 120 coins to reshuffle. 1st of all, I’m not out of words! Secondly, there is no “x” button to get rid of that screen?! There is always a reshuffle button at the bottom of the screen if you ever get stuck. So there is no need for “out of words” screen! They just want to force you to watch an ad!! Practically in every 15 mins play, you are watching 5-7 mins advertisement!! I stopped playing it because of too many ads. If there was less advertisement, I would have surely stayed and even purchased coins....
Great Except For Ads
by SolWord345 on 2018/10/08 02:37
I really enjoy this game, but the ads are so annoying. Like others I paid the $2.99 to eliminate the ads between games, but reshuffling still requires you to sit through a 30 second ad. That is too long and after 300 + levels it is ruining the enjoyment of what could be an exceptional game. I would understand if a player chooses to reshuffle, but when there are no words left without a reshuffle it should allow an immediate reshuffle. I realize there is an option to restart the game, but who wants to do so with only a couple words left? Want to play but with all the ads it’s frustrating and a battery drainer. Up to over level 500, ready to quit. Developers are you listening and even reading all these review? We enjoy the game but there are too darn many ads!
It’s fun
by TaraMay on 2018/11/18 07:08
I am a fan of word games; this one is pretty good. It’s not as addictive as some others, which is actually good for me; that means I can put it down whenever I need to. I think the developers should add an option to guess the category for additional coins. I like to see if I can guess the category before it pops up on the screen at the end of the round. It got 4 stars because there’s not really anything that makes it stand out.... it’s just simple and fun. I haven’t been playing this one that long so I do look forward to it getting more challenging as I get to the higher levels.
No More Words..No More Game
by Daiznoel on 2019/02/24 13:32
I like the game. Don’t like the ads. They are repetitive, too long and you really can’t “x” out of them because they just continue to play (tricky design maneuver, I’m sure). But I would tolerate them because I refuse to pay for no-ads. But I cannot tolerate having to pay, in one way or another, for a shuffle. I don’t want to watch another video or Pay coins. I found the words and shouldn’t be penalized that it wasn’t a specific order. When this happens more than once I close the game. Done. I will return in a few days to try again but when I have to watch a video, pay coins or restart I’m done again. One of these days I will close the game for good because of this unnecessary penalty.
Too many 2 page ads
by Beej1951 on 2019/01/22 02:00
I like the game but... Two things: 1. I don’t object to a few ads. You aren’t doing this for nothing. I don’t even object to two page ads if I’m not forced to stay on the second page. But the ads are irritatingly frequent, and even more irritating is I can’t just exit out of the second page. I play these games to relax, not to be irritated. 2. The hint and shuffle buttons are located exactly where my fingers either rest or drag on the buttons. I have no hints or shuffles left because of that - not because I can’t find words. Again, it’s irritating. I will download the upgrade, but if the irritation continues, I’ll be deleting.
Interrupting ads
by Cptn. Fuzzy Pants on 2018/11/28 02:31
—Updated response to developer response— I completely understand the need for ads to generate revenue for your work. I’m ok with that. The issue is that there is a reasonable way to do ads and then there’s the way you guys do it. Your way becomes so intrusive to the whole experience of the game that it distracts from any real fun the users may have. You guys went over the top with the ads. I play several games with ads and they don’t impact my enjoyment of the game. Your way of doing the ads almost feels like you are punishing those who don’t pay to remove them rather than rewarding those who do. I spent more time watching ads than actually playing your game. It should never be that way. I’m not the only one who feels this way. There are several other reviewers who felt your ads were too much and ruined their experience. I’ve seen fewer ads on a news station in a swing state near the end of an election year than in your game. —Original Review— Was cool until the ads started popping up. Then I deleted it. Wish people would just go back to banner ads only.
As free version is not really ad free
by Rdavis1228 on 2018/10/05 18:16
I loved this game and bought the ad free version so I could play continuously. But I still had to either buy more tokens to keep playing or sit through long ad times in order to continue to play. Even in the same puzzle I would have to sit through minutes long ads about 4-5 times so I could shuffle the letters when no more words could be found. Sometimes I could only solve 1 word before I had to shuffle again. I can’t afford to buy that many tokens and I am frustrated with have to sit through the same ads over and over to be able to shuffle for free. Like so many great games before this one I will delete this game and be sure to not recommend it to anyone. My friends and family mean too much to me to deceive them
Too many ads
by bchlfe on 2019/04/07 17:51
I wrote a review on this game but when the developer contacted me by email with their explanation there was a hyperlink asking if I wanted to update my review. I clicked on it and now my review is gone. My initial review was ....although I liked the game, after playing a little and getting to around level 13????? The ads started big time. Every other play they popped up. I understand why they have ads and I am ok with them, just not ok to every other play. This is the response I got from the developer "........................... "Dear player, we're so sorry for your bad feelings caused by the ads. Advertisements are an important support for us to keep updating and offer free puzzles to players. Please be aware that you can remove the interstitial ads by purchasing the REMOVE ADS feature. Meanwhile, all the ads that between levels could be closed or skipped after a few seconds. All your suggestions have been forwarded to our group and if you need any help, please feel free to email us Again, I have no problem with ads on free games, just a problem EVERY OTHER PLAY (turn) with yes is a new level.
Slow go words
by Olehippiegal on 2019/02/23 16:47
The game just wants you to spend money for coins because you will need them to shuffle the words when your stuck. Or you can watch a 40 second ad which most of the time it is in the circle of death and you can't watch the ad because yet again it's trying to get you to spend real money for coins to shuffle. And you will have to shuffle sometimes on 1 game 2 or 3 times at 120 coins each shuffle. Even if you restart the game I It lines up the letters the exact way again. Waste of time 2nd review again The only way to shuffle the letters is if you have coins. But if you rather watch a 40 sec ad it will shuffle for you. I don't mine watching ads but for the past 5 weeks there have been no ads to watch. It just stays in the circle of death and says Check back later you can't watch an ad at this time. Why doesn't the developer fix this. Going to find another game cuz I am not spending real money for this game that stays stuck all the time. February 2019 update Thank you for lowering the price of coins to shuffle the puzzle. It was 120 coins and now it's 50 coins that's great.
