Challenging
by dena stewart on 2020/08/25 02:43
Thank you for a game that isn’t impossible to do well on, but still it IS very challenging at times. Just enough of both to keep me on my toes. I am a 76 year young lady, who loves a challenge, and good clean fun. God is so very good to bless me with sweet surprises every day. This game I discovered a week or so ago, and love it. Thanks again!!
Inappropriate ads
by nanavelte on 2020/08/24 00:01
I loved this games I was playing with my granddaughter and OMG a ad popped up up girls and you pick what you want to do to the other one sexually are you serious this totally makes me so mad I’d give you zero stars if I could 😡I use to let my grandkids play my games 😡
NOT Worth the Ads
by JennyGP on 2020/08/04 02:44
The game is nowhere near fun enough to justify the ABSURD number of ads. IF it didn’t have so many ads, it could be a nice game, even relaxing. Quite simply, don’t waste your time here. Most of your time will be spent on ads.
Too many ads!
by jimix1991 on 2020/08/02 01:17
Good game but too many annoying ads. Ads pop up every single level.
Delete this app before the lude advertisement pops up
by Loublu111 on 2020/07/31 03:32
I was enjoying this game. It is challenging and makes you think. But I have just deleted this app from my phone because of an extremely inappropriate ad that just popped up. It was a cartoon of a woman with a cover over her and the ad showed the cover being removed showing what were obviously her mostly bare breasts. This app deserves 0 stars but unfortunately I have to select at least one. Developers have to take better control over the ads that are shown.
Changes
by jealous jazz on 2020/07/30 03:12
Had to re-download the app on my new phone. Was disappointed that I couldn’t pull up my previous score. Also this version doesn’t have the daily challenges and there’s no pick a gift box for extra coins when the game is opened. That white hand that shows hints is so annoying and this version doesn’t have the option of turning off that hand. It was bad enough that I had to replace my phone that is on the bottom of the ocean, but I don’t like this version of what had been my favorite game.
Love the game
by rdswan14 on 2020/07/19 00:09
The game is great but I spend 1/2 of the time watching ads and 1/2 of the time actually playing. I have nothing against the ads, but this is excessive.
Ads
by Samlu123456 on 2020/06/28 22:48
Love the game but please do not run offensive religious ads.
Don’t buy
by jquin5ana46 on 2020/06/27 02:30
You end up watching commercials even after you have paid for the app...very frustrating...

by starbucks cashe on 2020/06/25 07:52
I’m furious with the “late night advertising!” on this site/game. I travel many time zones and therefore “hope” that there are some safe sites/apps for kids (and adults for that matter!). My children like this game because it challenges their vocabulary and rhythmic aptitude - then ads come up that are super sexually suggestive - WHY! Why here?!? I’m very disappointed I have to delete this app.

Ads!Ads!Ads!
by Pokey7104 on 2020/06/17 15:45
There are way too many long ads.. it takes longer to get through an ad every time you do something than it does to get through a level.
Love it, but...
by @lkx on 2020/06/16 18:40
Please either make all advertising silent or allow an option to mute it. Some advertising have really in appropriate and in some cases unfortunate audio/sounds. Also, please leave religion out of the picture, or give a way to opt out of those type of advertising. Thank you
JUST LIKE EVERYONE IS SAYING TOO MANY ADS!!!
by BirdLady917! on 2020/06/02 20:50
Developers DO NOT LISTEN TO ANY FEEDBACK!!!!! All they do is repeat the same BS. That they need the ads to run the game. Again I call BS!!! Of ALL of the games I play or have EVER played,this one is the MOST ridiculous with the ads!!! Incessant, LONG ads!!!! I rarely play anymore because of. Only when I am BORED OUT OF MY MIND., and then I am reminded of why I don’t!!! Developers GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER—— all the ads make this game garbage

Too many ads.. Do you have this game without ads ?
I wish...
by keptdaily on 2020/05/20 22:28
I could go back to version 1.9.9 where the themes of the puzzles were still included. Also, why don’t they do ANYTHING when you pass landmarks like your 500th game or your 1000th game. They ought to give you coins or fireworks or SOMETHING!?!
Way too many ads
by MACOLLINS6572 on 2020/05/16 23:40
I lose patience with this game as there are too many loooong ads in this game! Instead of encouraging me okay it I just won’t play it! Word Crush is much more user friendly. The ads are short so as not to lose the player from impatience!
Most fun

Most fun of all the word games
Waste of time
by Valk 18 on 2020/05/07 02:14
You will spend most of your time watching ads for their other games, or pay them.
Too Many Ads
by Mel486486486 on 2020/05/01 02:02
Is it really necessary for all the ad time. 5 seconds of playing 30 seconds of ads, 5 seconds of playing 30 seconds of ads, and so on. I know I can pay to not have ads but choose not to. I use to like this game but the ad time is making me crazy. So the next best thing is to trash it. People don’t bother unless you like spending more time watching ads than playing the game or you’re ok with paying a fee.
Misleading ad
by Pablodiablo16 on 2020/04/28 01:36
My daughter wanted this game because of an ad that had a stick figure breaking out of jail using certain words to aid in his escape... am I missing something? That does not appear to be in the game at all.

Spelling
by Clumsyone1 on 2020/04/19 18:07
I love spelling games which is the example they give before downloading the game. When I got in the game I see it is another game where I need to make words from letters. This seemed a bit misleading. The game should be what the preview shows.
Way too many ads!!
by sydney0814 on 2020/04/17 17:17
I used to like this app, but now there are too many ads and they take FOREVER! I get that if you’re playing for free they use ads for revenue, but give me a break! No other game app I use has adds that last 30 seconds or more EVERY TIME you finish a level, restart, etc. I won’t be playing until they get this under control.
Great fun

General comments
by Physicsmom1 on 2020/04/01 20:09
I’m not enjoying the game as much since you changed the format, taking away the location incentives. While the puzzles themselves are still pretty hard, the daily games are stupid-easy. And, I’ve seen that fish die 1000 times. Aren’t there any other advertisers?
Love this game because it has a lot of words
by team45687 on 2020/04/01 03:42
This game is so fun and I love it
Out of proportion
by Old man old games on 2020/03/31 20:54
Your ads in proportion to playing time is way out of line. I don't blame you for wanting to make money but you need to have a better balance and you definitely don't. Push your customers far enough and you will soon find you no longer have any customers. And yes, I know your stock answer already, pay to eliminate the ads, and my answer is hell no, there are too many free games to choose from.
Paid to have adds removed. Still getting adds.
by NickorNames on 2020/03/31 14:03
I did a delete and reinstall, still getting adds. Adds finally went away after 12 + hours.
Too much addS

by zoeB🤓 on 2020/03/18 23:37
I love this game it’s really fun and it helps the brain. This game let’s you make words and learn new ones. Yes this game dose have adds but sometimes you get coins for it which help you with the words. So yes even though ppl might say bad stuff but it’s not a bad game but if you don’t believe me try it for yourself I mean it is free and amazing 👍🏻☺️🤓.

by ashlili lool on 2020/03/04 22:40
THIS GAME IS AMAZING BUT.. just too many ads.. I always play this game when I’m bored it’s kind of hard but that’s what I like about games so I really like this game but it’s just too many ads my parents won’t let me pay for a game even if it’s cheap because they think I’m gonna delete the game or stop playing because I always do that to my games and they think the money is gonna go to waste (I do actually so I kind of agreed) but still I knew I was not gonna delete or stop playing this game
Don’t bother.
by UNCfaninVA on 2020/03/02 04:11
Was an OK game when I first got it. Now way too many ads. With all the games out there, no reason to put up with this many ads or pay to stop them.
Way to many ads!!
by LynneAlex on 2020/02/29 07:12
Too many ads makes playing tedious when the game is supposed to be enjoyable.

Way too many, way too long ads
by pamella1104 on 2020/02/27 06:38
This is a very fun game but the ads are too long and too frequent. Sometimes a game is interrupted for more ads! Taking of phone. Sorry, ads are just too much

False advertising
by trackrunner95 on 2020/02/22 05:14
The game itself is fun to play, however there are many versions of this game on many different apps. I bought this because the games it showed on the advertisements were different than the game you get when you download it. Very disappointing!!!
Too many ads
by shipgimp on 2020/02/21 21:03
Not a bad game at all and I expected ads, but the amount of ads is ridiculous. At least two ads for every level you play.
Potential
by Santa36 on 2020/02/21 14:40
This game has potential. However the insane amount of advertising is insane. It takes away from the game itself. Yes I get that it is here to get money but The fact they spam the crap out of you to get you to pay for no ads just made me delete.
To many ads
by Steve6599 on 2020/02/21 14:09
Getting deleted soon. Game is fun, but ads every time you finish a puzzle is to often.

Too Many Ads and Game Flaws
by €£¥@:{( on 2020/02/14 23:34
Don’t get me wrong. The first 50 levels were fun, however the ads constantly after every screen of a short level was always frustrating. I legitimately spent more time watching ads for other games than I did playing the actual game. Became very bored after about 2-3 hours and upon reaching level 109 I feel this game is no longer worth it. There are too many times were ONCE AGAIN you are forced to watch ads because the game has a flaw and you NEED to shuffle. That is a flawed mechanic and pushes away people who aren’t going to pay to remove ads. Because some people just won't and I’m one of them. Unfortunately this game had a lot of potential but is going to be deleted by me now.

Toooooooooo loooooong
by andisios on 2020/02/11 02:39
With all free games, adds are expected. But the length of these are making me delete this app from frustration. The public understands a need for revenue, but when it causes the player to quit the game completely, then the commercials have made themselves counterproductive. The word game was fun for the 30 minutes it lasted though.
It’s fun but not as advertised
by Gghyt on 2020/02/09 01:42
I hate when you get an add on a game, the advertisements shows the game play as one way and when you download the app it is not the same game play as advertised! This game is fun, but it’s just a find the word game. Lots of adds, no clue as to what words your looking for. It’s just ok.

How to get a developer response
by USAR Ch on 2020/02/06 10:59
This review is written to get a developer’s response. I have enjoyed this game since 2018. I never missed a day. I have over 50000 points and then an ad froze up the game. Emailed developer because this was not the first time Word Cross as froze it up. No response. The last thing I thought of doing because it worked before was to delete and reinstall. Well I did and lost everything. Once again I write the developer and still no response. So I will wait here awhile before I delete the game and not install it again. Yes the ads are getting more numerous but with all their Gino’s they don’t care about the app and more and more are freezing up systems. Usually deleting and restoring is not a problem but here it was. I haven’t looked at one of your ads in weeks. Tell that to your advertisers
Fun Game...but
by CPZ1998 on 2020/02/04 02:38
Too many ads! Sometimes there are 3 ads between games. Too bad it was a fun game.

Miss the flowers
by mynicknamewasstolen!!! on 2020/02/03 14:07
Update: If you're intent on doing five small puzzles, anyway...I have an idea:. Join the five puzzles into a theme so we can guess the entire main theme Example: Minipuzzle 1: page, spine, chapter, cover, dogear = BOOK Minipuzzle 2: Caesar, Augustus, Cleopatra, Nero, QueenElizabeth =RULER Minipuzzle 3: Drawer, legs, mohogany, office, computer = DESK Minipuzzle 4: shears, pinking, fabric, sharp, kitchen = SCISSORS Minipuzzle 5: Ring, chime, clock, liberty, church = BELL SUPERTHEME: SCHOOL I miss the flowers. I didn't care about the points they gave; I just liked that one long daily game that had a flower on each word. The flowers helped us figure out the puzzle, because if there were three flowers in a row, we knew that wasn't a word. Now we don't need the flowers because the puzzle are too short and easy. If the game had started out this way I wouldn't be complaining, because I wouldn't have known what I was missing. Funny, that! Good game, otherwise. Previous review: First, thank you, Devs, for adding the "clue" toggle in the settings! That makes a world of difference in playing this game, yet those who want the title before the game benefit as well. It's a win/win. As for the ads, they aren't that bad. They only play one ad between games. And if my memory serves me correctly, the ads used to be full-fledged 30 seconds in length. They've cut the ads down to a few seconds. Some ads have a black ⏩ that appears in the top left hand side of the screen that you can tap, which ends the ad and proceeds to the game. Some ads fade in a ❎ at the top of the screen. And frankly, I've downloaded some pretty great apps that I otherwise wouldn't have known existed - including this one - if I hadn't seen these ads. If you still hate the ads, use that time to count your blessings. Because the fact that you can sit through the ads at all means you're holding something that is pretty darn awesome. A whole lot of people who do not have smart phones would be more than happy to trade places and watch an ad after every game. The game itself is great. I've played games like this before, but this one allows you to select spare words unrelated to the theme and collect coins for the words. This update now allows you to select spare words that were in previous games. Earlier versions would tell you the word was already selected. They've worked hard on this update. 👉 PREVIOUS REVIEW: If I had known the title of each puzzle would be revealed at the beginning of each game...and continue to show up in full view the entire game (making it difficult to ignore it 🙈), I would never have updated. ‼️💡IDEA‼️ Devs, is it possible to add a toggle in the settings to reveal or hide the puzzle theme? And if not, is it possible to at least hide the theme on the page itself, and allow players to reveal the theme by tapping on it, any time during the game? The feature I liked best was the hidden theme. Now the puzzle isn't as fun any more, and this was my favorite word game. I understand a lot of players want to know the theme, and I don't want to reduce their enjoyment in the game. But there are ways to accommodate to all players. Can this idea be considered in the future update, pretty please? I'm not removing a star, because I rate on game quality, not my personal opinion. The game itself is high quality, and it's obvious that the devs have put a lot of time and effort into this game. In fact, the very move of revealing the theme is a direct reaction of players' reviews. How can I downgrade, when the devs are trying to improve the game? I get it. They can't please everyone...well...but my suggestion would be a compromise, though. I do have to say, I'm glad they finally reveal the daily puzzle theme...I just wish they would reveal it after the game is played.

BUT THE DANG ADS!!!!!!! Holy moly. There is an ad after every level and if you stop to answer a text there is an ad after that. I love playing this game but the ads are so ridiculous I don’t play as much as I’d like to.
Ads!!
by Kwkr on 2020/01/26 14:35
Got SICK of 2 ads after every.single.play Update:so got a response from the game. “Blah blah blah, we need to get revenue, btw there is only 1 ad after EVERY play”. Sorry not true. The ad has TWO parts but each are separate, you have to watch both. Btw,most games DON’T have ads after every. single. play, how do they make money?
Love the game, ads way too long!
by kiwi5675 on 2020/01/24 20:26
I wish I could play this game for longer stretches of time, but the ads after each game go for way too long. The game itself is great, very well done. I end up getting out of it because I get frustrated by all of the *long* ads. There’s another game I like to play that also has several ads, but once they come on, and can be clicked off right away, so I can play that one for a longer period of time. It’s just a shame that your ads take so long.

Decent game, bad ad/gameplay ratio
by Travistn on 2020/01/17 09:40
Cute idea for game, however 2 annoying things, 1. Too long ads, the gameplay vs ad time ratio is way off. I feel like you should get more than 2 mins of game play for every 20-30secs of unstoppable ads. 2. In gameplay there should be a way to differentiate between scoring words and bonus words. Uninstalled over ad issue
Love, but hate

Great game besides all the ads

I love the game! Only thing is there way too many ads!!! I was at level 125 and then out of nowhere the game quit working tried to play and would not load so had to uninstall then reinstall and start all over 😩. Feel like there are more ads than before. Use to be okay to give you a break in the game and now I find myself playing less because I don’t feel like dealing with the ads.
SO MANY MANY ADS
by Memyselfndotti on 2020/01/04 15:55
AD FOR A HINT, AD FOR A SHUFFLE, THEN IN BETWEEN EACH PUZZLE I HAVE TO WATCH AN AD, I WOULD RATHER PAY FOR THIS APP, CAUSE IT IS FUN, TO STOP THE NAGGING ADS. ADS ARE DESTROYING ANY AMOUNT OF ENJOYMENT IT HAS. STOP THEM PLEASE, THANKS
Where did the magnets go?
by NoBucketWashing on 2020/01/03 13:04
Hi there. Love this game. I have been playing it for a few years now. My favorite part was collecting the magnets. I noticed I didn’t acquire any magnets for level completions the entire month of December 2019. Have you done away with the magnets? Thank you for your time. Thank you for creating a fun game. Happy New Year.

What a contagious game!!!!!
Disappointed
by PianoGuy9334 on 2019/12/15 21:08
Too many ads pop up/you need to need to watch a video to earn coins to unscramble letters-message comes up no video at this time.Would enjoy more if there were less advertising!Not sure if I keep this .
I thought the title of the puzzle was supposed to show up first!
by golfforeme on 2019/12/08 02:44
Title of puzzle shows up AFTER the game! Why?
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.
OMG Too Many Ads
by FairyPryncess on 2019/12/04 01:13
There is an ad at the bottom of the screen 📺 & Ads after every level. If you answer the phone 📱, receive a text, check your signal, or internet connection another ad (not short ads but long ads close to a minute). If the app is idle for a couple of seconds another ad, not short ads but ads that last up to 60 seconds. Another problem is that you can’t ‘x’ out of the ad, the ad will go to either the App Store or to the website pertaining to the ad. Ads during game play also come up, an ad came up while selecting a word. Also the app becomes non responsive & have to close out of the app. No way to close out if the ad doesn’t play. The daily games are now broken down into five smaller games. With an ad before the game and after each level in the game, just another way to play more ads. Also if you mistakenly touch the ad at the bottom of the screen, the app will go to the page of the ad & when you press “done” another ad appears and you have to wait for the ad to finish before returning to the game. The view videos for points is placed too close to the ads located at the bottom of the screen & is just another way to force you to view more ads. Don’t like the new daily games, takes too long to complete the game. This app went from a good app to basically just a app full of ads, the ads are longer than the actual game.
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
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!
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.
“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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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’
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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
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!
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.
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.
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 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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Still needs I improvement
by Pearlb996 on 2018/11/09 17:30
I too love the concept of this game. I think you still need to improve by rewarding the player coins after each puzzle is solved. As it is your coin rewards are very minute....feels very ‘cheap!’ Some puzzles have words that no one has ever heard of. If one can’t constantly try every possibility, one is stuck on that game. (Like names of mountains, or Japanese terms, etc.). Would appreciate a little more middle of the road answers. I do this game for relaxation, not stress. But my most wish is for more coins rewarded after each game.
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.
Forced Ads Lower Enjoyment
by A. Bomb on 2019/10/07 21:00
A month ago, I would have given this 5 stars. The added forced ads are annoying after playing for so long without them. It was a good break to play this game without so many automatic ads. I may scale back now. I did like the rewards system before when we volunteered to watch ads. I did when I wanted rewards but now they’re forced on me and interrupt the experience. Not a fan of the new reward system either. Thank you for your response, but it seems the ad algorithm has gotten worse in the past week. Unfortunately, the ads were so annoying that I deleted the app. Shame. I really liked playing it every day to keep my mind sharp.
Too Many Ads and Game Flaws
by €£¥@:{( on 2020/02/14 23:34
Don’t get me wrong. The first 50 levels were fun, however the ads constantly after every screen of a short level was always frustrating. I legitimately spent more time watching ads for other games than I did playing the actual game. Became very bored after about 2-3 hours and upon reaching level 109 I feel this game is no longer worth it. There are too many times were ONCE AGAIN you are forced to watch ads because the game has a flaw and you NEED to shuffle. That is a flawed mechanic and pushes away people who aren’t going to pay to remove ads. Because some people just won't and I’m one of them. Unfortunately this game had a lot of potential but is going to be deleted by me now.
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.
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!
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 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....
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.

Challenging
by dena stewart on 2020/08/25 02:43
Thank you for a game that isn’t impossible to do well on, but still it IS very challenging at times. Just enough of both to keep me on my toes. I am a 76 year young lady, who loves a challenge, and good clean fun. God is so very good to bless me with sweet surprises every day. This game I discovered a week or so ago, and love it. Thanks again!!
Inappropriate ads
by nanavelte on 2020/08/24 00:01
I loved this games I was playing with my granddaughter and OMG a ad popped up up girls and you pick what you want to do to the other one sexually are you serious this totally makes me so mad I’d give you zero stars if I could 😡I use to let my grandkids play my games 😡
NOT Worth the Ads
by JennyGP on 2020/08/04 02:44
The game is nowhere near fun enough to justify the ABSURD number of ads. IF it didn’t have so many ads, it could be a nice game, even relaxing. Quite simply, don’t waste your time here. Most of your time will be spent on ads.
Too many ads!
by jimix1991 on 2020/08/02 01:17
Good game but too many annoying ads. Ads pop up every single level.
Delete this app before the lude advertisement pops up
by Loublu111 on 2020/07/31 03:32
I was enjoying this game. It is challenging and makes you think. But I have just deleted this app from my phone because of an extremely inappropriate ad that just popped up. It was a cartoon of a woman with a cover over her and the ad showed the cover being removed showing what were obviously her mostly bare breasts. This app deserves 0 stars but unfortunately I have to select at least one. Developers have to take better control over the ads that are shown.
Changes
by jealous jazz on 2020/07/30 03:12
Had to re-download the app on my new phone. Was disappointed that I couldn’t pull up my previous score. Also this version doesn’t have the daily challenges and there’s no pick a gift box for extra coins when the game is opened. That white hand that shows hints is so annoying and this version doesn’t have the option of turning off that hand. It was bad enough that I had to replace my phone that is on the bottom of the ocean, but I don’t like this version of what had been my favorite game.
Love the game
by rdswan14 on 2020/07/19 00:09
The game is great but I spend 1/2 of the time watching ads and 1/2 of the time actually playing. I have nothing against the ads, but this is excessive.

I’m furious with the “late night advertising!” on this site/game. I travel many time zones and therefore “hope” that there are some safe sites/apps for kids (and adults for that matter!). My children like this game because it challenges their vocabulary and rhythmic aptitude - then ads come up that are super sexually suggestive - WHY! Why here?!? I’m very disappointed I have to delete this app.

There are way too many long ads.. it takes longer to get through an ad every time you do something than it does to get through a level.
Love it, but...
by @lkx on 2020/06/16 18:40
Please either make all advertising silent or allow an option to mute it. Some advertising have really in appropriate and in some cases unfortunate audio/sounds. Also, please leave religion out of the picture, or give a way to opt out of those type of advertising. Thank you

Developers DO NOT LISTEN TO ANY FEEDBACK!!!!! All they do is repeat the same BS. That they need the ads to run the game. Again I call BS!!! Of ALL of the games I play or have EVER played,this one is the MOST ridiculous with the ads!!! Incessant, LONG ads!!!! I rarely play anymore because of. Only when I am BORED OUT OF MY MIND., and then I am reminded of why I don’t!!! Developers GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER—— all the ads make this game garbage

I could go back to version 1.9.9 where the themes of the puzzles were still included. Also, why don’t they do ANYTHING when you pass landmarks like your 500th game or your 1000th game. They ought to give you coins or fireworks or SOMETHING!?!
Way too many ads
by MACOLLINS6572 on 2020/05/16 23:40
I lose patience with this game as there are too many loooong ads in this game! Instead of encouraging me okay it I just won’t play it! Word Crush is much more user friendly. The ads are short so as not to lose the player from impatience!

You will spend most of your time watching ads for their other games, or pay them.
Too Many Ads
by Mel486486486 on 2020/05/01 02:02
Is it really necessary for all the ad time. 5 seconds of playing 30 seconds of ads, 5 seconds of playing 30 seconds of ads, and so on. I know I can pay to not have ads but choose not to. I use to like this game but the ad time is making me crazy. So the next best thing is to trash it. People don’t bother unless you like spending more time watching ads than playing the game or you’re ok with paying a fee.
Misleading ad
by Pablodiablo16 on 2020/04/28 01:36

I love spelling games which is the example they give before downloading the game. When I got in the game I see it is another game where I need to make words from letters. This seemed a bit misleading. The game should be what the preview shows.
Way too many ads!!
by sydney0814 on 2020/04/17 17:17
I used to like this app, but now there are too many ads and they take FOREVER! I get that if you’re playing for free they use ads for revenue, but give me a break! No other game app I use has adds that last 30 seconds or more EVERY TIME you finish a level, restart, etc. I won’t be playing until they get this under control.
Great fun

General comments
by Physicsmom1 on 2020/04/01 20:09
I’m not enjoying the game as much since you changed the format, taking away the location incentives. While the puzzles themselves are still pretty hard, the daily games are stupid-easy. And, I’ve seen that fish die 1000 times. Aren’t there any other advertisers?

Out of proportion
by Old man old games on 2020/03/31 20:54
Your ads in proportion to playing time is way out of line. I don't blame you for wanting to make money but you need to have a better balance and you definitely don't. Push your customers far enough and you will soon find you no longer have any customers. And yes, I know your stock answer already, pay to eliminate the ads, and my answer is hell no, there are too many free games to choose from.
Paid to have adds removed. Still getting adds.
by NickorNames on 2020/03/31 14:03

Yes this game dose have adds but sometimes you get coins for it which help you with the words. So yes even though ppl might say bad stuff but it’s not a bad game but if you don’t believe me try it for yourself I mean it is free and amazing 👍🏻☺️🤓.

The game itself is fun to play, however there are many versions of this game on many different apps. I bought this because the games it showed on the advertisements were different than the game you get when you download it. Very disappointing!!!
Too many ads
by shipgimp on 2020/02/21 21:03
Not a bad game at all and I expected ads, but the amount of ads is ridiculous. At least two ads for every level you play.
Potential
by Santa36 on 2020/02/21 14:40
This game has potential. However the insane amount of advertising is insane. It takes away from the game itself. Yes I get that it is here to get money but The fact they spam the crap out of you to get you to pay for no ads just made me delete.
To many ads

Getting deleted soon. Game is fun, but ads every time you finish a puzzle is to often.

Too Many Ads and Game Flaws
by €£¥@:{( on 2020/02/14 23:34
Don’t get me wrong. The first 50 levels were fun, however the ads constantly after every screen of a short level was always frustrating. I legitimately spent more time watching ads for other games than I did playing the actual game. Became very bored after about 2-3 hours and upon reaching level 109 I feel this game is no longer worth it. There are too many times were ONCE AGAIN you are forced to watch ads because the game has a flaw and you NEED to shuffle. That is a flawed mechanic and pushes away people who aren’t going to pay to remove ads. Because some people just won't and I’m one of them. Unfortunately this game had a lot of potential but is going to be deleted by me now.

Toooooooooo loooooong
by andisios on 2020/02/11 02:39
With all free games, adds are expected. But the length of these are making me delete this app from frustration. The public understands a need for revenue, but when it causes the player to quit the game completely, then the commercials have made themselves counterproductive. The word game was fun for the 30 minutes it lasted though.
It’s fun but not as advertised
by Gghyt on 2020/02/09 01:42
I hate when you get an add on a game, the advertisements shows the game play as one way and when you download the app it is not the same game play as advertised! This game is fun, but it’s just a find the word game. Lots of adds, no clue as to what words your looking for. It’s just ok.

How to get a developer response
by USAR Ch on 2020/02/06 10:59
This review is written to get a developer’s response. I have enjoyed this game since 2018. I never missed a day. I have over 50000 points and then an ad froze up the game. Emailed developer because this was not the first time Word Cross as froze it up. No response. The last thing I thought of doing because it worked before was to delete and reinstall. Well I did and lost everything. Once again I write the developer and still no response. So I will wait here awhile before I delete the game and not install it again. Yes the ads are getting more numerous but with all their Gino’s they don’t care about the app and more and more are freezing up systems. Usually deleting and restoring is not a problem but here it was. I haven’t looked at one of your ads in weeks. Tell that to your advertisers
Fun Game...but

Miss the flowers
by mynicknamewasstolen!!! on 2020/02/03 14:07
Update: If you're intent on doing five small puzzles, anyway...I have an idea:. Join the five puzzles into a theme so we can guess the entire main theme Example: Minipuzzle 1: page, spine, chapter, cover, dogear = BOOK Minipuzzle 2: Caesar, Augustus, Cleopatra, Nero, QueenElizabeth =RULER Minipuzzle 3: Drawer, legs, mohogany, office, computer = DESK Minipuzzle 4: shears, pinking, fabric, sharp, kitchen = SCISSORS Minipuzzle 5: Ring, chime, clock, liberty, church = BELL SUPERTHEME: SCHOOL I miss the flowers. I didn't care about the points they gave; I just liked that one long daily game that had a flower on each word. The flowers helped us figure out the puzzle, because if there were three flowers in a row, we knew that wasn't a word. Now we don't need the flowers because the puzzle are too short and easy. If the game had started out this way I wouldn't be complaining, because I wouldn't have known what I was missing. Funny, that! Good game, otherwise. Previous review: First, thank you, Devs, for adding the "clue" toggle in the settings! That makes a world of difference in playing this game, yet those who want the title before the game benefit as well. It's a win/win. As for the ads, they aren't that bad. They only play one ad between games. And if my memory serves me correctly, the ads used to be full-fledged 30 seconds in length. They've cut the ads down to a few seconds. Some ads have a black ⏩ that appears in the top left hand side of the screen that you can tap, which ends the ad and proceeds to the game. Some ads fade in a ❎ at the top of the screen. And frankly, I've downloaded some pretty great apps that I otherwise wouldn't have known existed - including this one - if I hadn't seen these ads. If you still hate the ads, use that time to count your blessings. Because the fact that you can sit through the ads at all means you're holding something that is pretty darn awesome. A whole lot of people who do not have smart phones would be more than happy to trade places and watch an ad after every game. The game itself is great. I've played games like this before, but this one allows you to select spare words unrelated to the theme and collect coins for the words. This update now allows you to select spare words that were in previous games. Earlier versions would tell you the word was already selected. They've worked hard on this update. 👉 PREVIOUS REVIEW: If I had known the title of each puzzle would be revealed at the beginning of each game...and continue to show up in full view the entire game (making it difficult to ignore it 🙈), I would never have updated. ‼️💡IDEA‼️ Devs, is it possible to add a toggle in the settings to reveal or hide the puzzle theme? And if not, is it possible to at least hide the theme on the page itself, and allow players to reveal the theme by tapping on it, any time during the game? The feature I liked best was the hidden theme. Now the puzzle isn't as fun any more, and this was my favorite word game. I understand a lot of players want to know the theme, and I don't want to reduce their enjoyment in the game. But there are ways to accommodate to all players. Can this idea be considered in the future update, pretty please? I'm not removing a star, because I rate on game quality, not my personal opinion. The game itself is high quality, and it's obvious that the devs have put a lot of time and effort into this game. In fact, the very move of revealing the theme is a direct reaction of players' reviews. How can I downgrade, when the devs are trying to improve the game? I get it. They can't please everyone...well...but my suggestion would be a compromise, though. I do have to say, I'm glad they finally reveal the daily puzzle theme...I just wish they would reveal it after the game is played.

BUT THE DANG ADS!!!!!!! Holy moly. There is an ad after every level and if you stop to answer a text there is an ad after that. I love playing this game but the ads are so ridiculous I don’t play as much as I’d like to.
Ads!!
by Kwkr on 2020/01/26 14:35
Got SICK of 2 ads after every.single.play Update:so got a response from the game. “Blah blah blah, we need to get revenue, btw there is only 1 ad after EVERY play”. Sorry not true. The ad has TWO parts but each are separate, you have to watch both. Btw,most games DON’T have ads after every. single. play, how do they make money?
Love the game, ads way too long!
by kiwi5675 on 2020/01/24 20:26
I wish I could play this game for longer stretches of time, but the ads after each game go for way too long. The game itself is great, very well done. I end up getting out of it because I get frustrated by all of the *long* ads. There’s another game I like to play that also has several ads, but once they come on, and can be clicked off right away, so I can play that one for a longer period of time. It’s just a shame that your ads take so long.

Decent game, bad ad/gameplay ratio
by Travistn on 2020/01/17 09:40
Cute idea for game, however 2 annoying things, 1. Too long ads, the gameplay vs ad time ratio is way off. I feel like you should get more than 2 mins of game play for every 20-30secs of unstoppable ads. 2. In gameplay there should be a way to differentiate between scoring words and bonus words. Uninstalled over ad issue

I was at level 125 and then out of nowhere the game quit working tried to play and would not load so had to uninstall then reinstall and start all over 😩. Feel like there are more ads than before. Use to be okay to give you a break in the game and now I find myself playing less because I don’t feel like dealing with the ads.

by NoBucketWashing on 2020/01/03 13:04
Hi there. Love this game. I have been playing it for a few years now. My favorite part was collecting the magnets. I noticed I didn’t acquire any magnets for level completions the entire month of December 2019. Have you done away with the magnets? Thank you for your time. Thank you for creating a fun game. Happy New Year.

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.
OMG Too Many Ads
by FairyPryncess on 2019/12/04 01:13
There is an ad at the bottom of the screen 📺 & Ads after every level. If you answer the phone 📱, receive a text, check your signal, or internet connection another ad (not short ads but long ads close to a minute). If the app is idle for a couple of seconds another ad, not short ads but ads that last up to 60 seconds. Another problem is that you can’t ‘x’ out of the ad, the ad will go to either the App Store or to the website pertaining to the ad. Ads during game play also come up, an ad came up while selecting a word. Also the app becomes non responsive & have to close out of the app. No way to close out if the ad doesn’t play. The daily games are now broken down into five smaller games. With an ad before the game and after each level in the game, just another way to play more ads. Also if you mistakenly touch the ad at the bottom of the screen, the app will go to the page of the ad & when you press “done” another ad appears and you have to wait for the ad to finish before returning to the game. The view videos for points is placed too close to the ads located at the bottom of the screen & is just another way to force you to view more ads. Don’t like the new daily games, takes too long to complete the game. This app went from a good app to basically just a app full of ads, the ads are longer than the actual game.
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
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!
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.
“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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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’
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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
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!
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.
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.
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 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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Still needs I improvement
by Pearlb996 on 2018/11/09 17:30
I too love the concept of this game. I think you still need to improve by rewarding the player coins after each puzzle is solved. As it is your coin rewards are very minute....feels very ‘cheap!’ Some puzzles have words that no one has ever heard of. If one can’t constantly try every possibility, one is stuck on that game. (Like names of mountains, or Japanese terms, etc.). Would appreciate a little more middle of the road answers. I do this game for relaxation, not stress. But my most wish is for more coins rewarded after each game.
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.
Forced Ads Lower Enjoyment
by A. Bomb on 2019/10/07 21:00
A month ago, I would have given this 5 stars. The added forced ads are annoying after playing for so long without them. It was a good break to play this game without so many automatic ads. I may scale back now. I did like the rewards system before when we volunteered to watch ads. I did when I wanted rewards but now they’re forced on me and interrupt the experience. Not a fan of the new reward system either. Thank you for your response, but it seems the ad algorithm has gotten worse in the past week. Unfortunately, the ads were so annoying that I deleted the app. Shame. I really liked playing it every day to keep my mind sharp.
Too Many Ads and Game Flaws
by €£¥@:{( on 2020/02/14 23:34
Don’t get me wrong. The first 50 levels were fun, however the ads constantly after every screen of a short level was always frustrating. I legitimately spent more time watching ads for other games than I did playing the actual game. Became very bored after about 2-3 hours and upon reaching level 109 I feel this game is no longer worth it. There are too many times were ONCE AGAIN you are forced to watch ads because the game has a flaw and you NEED to shuffle. That is a flawed mechanic and pushes away people who aren’t going to pay to remove ads. Because some people just won't and I’m one of them. Unfortunately this game had a lot of potential but is going to be deleted by me now.
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.
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!
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 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....
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.
