They scammed me!
by Naomi...Cole on 2020/08/09 06:43
I paid 12.99 (which was the cheapest) and it didn’t add my coins or bombs!! I emailed them telling them what just happened and I’m waiting for a response. I can’t even believe it. It said the purchase was successful so I don’t know what happened but that’s crazy.
Yawn...
by whiskeytangoboy on 2020/08/05 02:33
It is okay. Nothing special. Developers need to learn to spell and maybe buy a dictionary. Solutions are sometimes proper names, but proper names are not acceptable when input by user. Also, ads freeze up on screen and then, well... it is game over.
Bad adds

This site pushes their political views with advertisements
I’ve been playing a bit today but........
by Renfrolo on 2020/07/19 11:57
When the game of spelling in a prison break doesn’t recognize the word thief, you lose my interest. There were a half dozen more it didn’t recognize. But seriously, a spelling game based in prison doesn’t know the word thief. It made me laugh after the other words it didn’t know. I even went to google to figure out how I was spelling thief wrong. Is it thief, theif, theife, theef, thiegh, thieph or thefe. It turned out my original thief was correct. Do you see the issue here. A spelling game that can’t spell basic 4th grade words.
7/17/20 Update: Political Ads Gone
by beadingamy on 2020/07/19 04:28
Update: No more political ads! Thank you!!! Loved this game & played every day until they started running political ads. Initially you could just close the ad but now it plays a video in between each word game.
The ads are not a problem! They need a dictionary!
by Radioactive woman on 2020/06/14 16:35
I’ve put words like slap and gesture and the game doesn’t accept it as a word! Sure it’s fun but only when it’s a fair game!
3,2,1 back to game!
by rhffhusducer on 2020/06/10 05:59
The game is, I have to say perfect 👌! I do get some ads but they are shorter than I expected!
When does it end???
by Gregory Bryans on 2020/05/30 01:22
The game was interesting at first. There was an actual objective; break someone out of prison. After breaking him out there were various word puzzles. There were 3 letter to 7 letter puzzles. Some levels have riddles. It caught my attention until... I’m on level 2511. Yes 2511. For the past few hundred levels the puzzles are 6 letter words. It’s so boring now. No variation. Just 6 letter words. No story anymore because he’s free from prison. No variation. Just 6 letter words. About to uninstall.
Maybe
by bonnie @ copperdog on 2020/05/25 18:13
I'm going to make this short: I want more action with the guy rather than words. If you could just do a little bit more with the guy, maybe even save coins to get stuff like clothes and different color sheets and pillows. Maybe also having the choice to be a male or female
The ads are fake
by ThatAddHater on 2020/05/24 03:37
Like many games coming out today of someone who gets to control the in game player’s actions and surroundings by choosing the right option or solving the puzzle, this is not the case, this game is full of highly repetitive levels, bad user quality, and rigged pricing systems, I played this game for over a year in hopes of getting to a new section, there is even clickbait material in the actual game, let me save you some time, don’t download this game, I would give 0 stars, don’t let the 4.8 fool you.
Word story
by Glocus60 on 2020/05/19 02:28
I‘be been playing this game for a few months but now all of a sudden after you complete the answers to the clues you don’t receive your coins... 30 coins is not working nor is the 2 spins for coins or boost working. I’ve been telling you in the like or dislike this level for 5 days but it works for a couple of puzzles then stops. I’m really thinking about uninstalling this game if you can not fix the problem. Suggestion you need to put some more action in the game it’s just unscramble the words.
Please read
by unicorn1342156 on 2020/05/17 00:00
I have had this game for a while. I have gotten to day 159, so very far. A. Yes the game is nothing like the ads. You just spell out words. That’s it. B. Sometimes you get an item that helps you escape, but it fails. It is really a boring game. Please do not play
Boring
by Tia211 on 2020/05/15 06:57
You just figure out the word , and you look at the same thing constantly had it for less than 5 minutes until I deleted it, I’m just going to stick to Subway Surfer 😊
No that bad but....
by MrRainBowGamer123 on 2020/05/15 01:11
It is a okay game but everything the ads looks like are false also it gets to a point where It can be unplayable because there are so many ads in the game. Overall 5/10 but could be a lot better.
Helped me figure out life.
by Ponyyloverr54321 on 2020/05/05 01:05
This is such a good app and anyone who gives it one star is a hater. I was actually stuck in prison once and I whipped my phone out of the little place between the cement where I could keep it without the guards knowing, and I played it for about 87 hours. Then, I realized if I could break this little man out of jail, so could I! And I did. Your welcome.

by layla.m.m on 2020/04/29 14:50
I love this game. This game is educational and there are barely any ads. I was playing this game for 25 minutes straight not one ad. This is just an amazing game. 🥰 I just love it.
Daily Game
by Trulypar on 2020/04/24 13:56
Update #3: once again the daily puzzle isn’t working. I waited to post this update hoping the most recent game update would fix the bug, but not luck... please fix this again. UPDATE #2: they finally fixed the daily game!!! Awesome!!! I’m so happy. This is one of the games I love to play each night and the daily game is where I earn my coins. UPDATE: it has been quite awhile since I posted this review about the daily game not working and the game creators have neither acknowledged my post nor fixed the problem. This is very frustrating since that is where I get my coins to play the regular levels. It isn’t working. The daily puzzle is blank and doesn’t load.
Too hard

Negative stars
by Big birds twin on 2020/04/12 04:05
I wish I could block every single game like this one. It makes you watch a 30 second ad every time you complete a word. Then there are other ads to watch at different intervals. Is there an ad free version one may ask? Not as far as I can tell. This game will be deleted forthwith!

So-so
by Flugualbinder on 2020/04/07 01:09
The game is okay. Not at all what I thought it was going to be- boring and disappointing compared to what i imagined. Plus it uses the same words repeatedly, which gets old real quick. There’s no option to buy a no-ads setting, which also gets quite annoying. It also tend to get glitchy after a bit of playtime. Some of the illustrations are funny, which kept my attention a bit more. And the curiosity about what was going to happen also kept me going. But it was a long, repetitive game, with an anticlimactic end.
Why with the ads
by pukeing kitty on 2020/04/02 15:50
What’s with all the ads😤😤😤😤
What happened?
by pechede on 2020/04/01 04:40
I’ve been playing this game a very long time . There was a 3000 level challenge with a Joker icon. Where did it go? Was it a cruel lure? What happened?!?
Misleading adds
by weirdo reivewing a game on 2020/03/23 16:08
I saw the add for this game and thought it would be pretty fun. The first animation I saw was him getting arrested, so I thought it would get to the fun puzzles pretty soon. He said that there would be word puzzles every day. In the adds you make the right type of words to get through prison, yet in the actual game you don’t. You only make one word each day and the only animation is him digging a stupid hole and dumping out rocks.
It’s fun

Used to be better
by Al54913 on 2020/03/04 18:36
The game itself is enjoyable enough but they made a disappointing change. You used to be able to get coins by finding enough bonus words to fill the golden piggy bank. They still have that mechanic but now you have to pay $4.99 to get the coins. You also used to get coins whenever you solved a puzzle. Now the only way to get coins is by watching ads or by paying the aforementioned $4.99. If it wasn’t for this I would give the game a higher rating.
Boring game, too many ads
by Bewitchedtattoos on 2020/03/02 04:48
I don’t know what I expected but this game is very dull and slow moving and there are far too many ads for other games.
False advertising at it’s finest

Major Bug. No more Money
by Ludo234 on 2020/02/19 16:38
I have made it to the 1700s. All at once the game stopped giving me rewards. I would solve the puzzle and the option to get 30 coins is grayed out. This game is above frustrating. But for some weird reason I stuck wit it. But I doubt I’ll be able to finish if the reward for having to watch stupid ads no longer no longer supports advancing in the game Fix this!
Game looks more interesting than it is
by Pyjamazen on 2020/02/12 18:35
This is a super-simple word unscramble puzzle disguised as a word puzzle prison escape. If you want a challenging word find/unscramble game there are number of far, far better ones out there. This is a super simple version of those games with a totally unrelated, poorly rendered, highly ungrammatical prison escape story laid overtop of it. It also pushes hints on you whether you want them or not, so it’s not like you can even enjoy the elementary school level of the puzzles without letters shaking at you telling you which ones to pick. It’s pretty terrible on all possible fronts.
This game ain’t great
by XxMeme_Lord_xX on 2020/02/12 03:41
Don’t believe any of the ads and or that this game has any actual kind of story, it is literally just word puzzle x27 and then oooo a boring different cutscene happened, and then back to regular.
This is a bad game
by (yhi on 2020/02/09 01:23
It fun at the beginning but so rounds don’t count your work too BORING BORING BORING DONT PLAY IT AWFUL
Fun, but tourney needs work.
by IceDragonBenz on 2020/02/08 16:29
It is a fun game of guessing words. But the tourney in it is rather one-sided. After guessing most of the phrase your opponent has a higher chance of winning than you do. It doesn’t matter if you guess most the letters and have a higher score, just who “solves” the puzzle.
Bad story and quality, good word game though
by I'd prefer to not give a name on 2020/01/16 00:38
The game itself is horrible. Terrible grammar. “I want be free”? SPAMS ads, SPAMS notifications, and the headphones do nothing! All the “improvements” are LIES! You escape onto a generic beach ON LEVEL 200 REGARDLESS OF INCHES CHIPPED! The puzzles are okay though. I mean seriously just buy Words With Friends or Wordscapes or LITERALLY ANY OTHER GAME!! I mean the gameplay is good but it wasn’t made well. 3/10. Now if you excuse me I need to uninstall this trash and replace it with KleptoCats.

by kkkkkkccccccclllllll on 2020/01/02 15:42
This game is fun. My only suggestion would be to give people clues when trying to figure out the words. There’s 3 slots with like 6 letters to choose from. The problem is you can create multiple words out of the given letters. Another issue is some of the words aren’t consistent with the guys situation. For example one word was FOX. Fox has nothing to do with him going away for murdering his wife lol. I’m glad I found this game because the ads looked very appealing but it needs some tweaking.

I enjoy this game because I like word games and this one is challenging without being frustrating. However if your downloading this for the story line, don’t. I’m on level 300 it’s basically the same as level 1
Trump ads should go
by Jaws0126 on 2019/12/21 23:59
I like the game even though it is repetitive, but like text twist in scrambling letters to build words. However, especially lately, too many ads promotingTrump. I would not recommend because of this alone. Keep politics out of fun. Instead, the ability’s to pay a modest fee with no ads would make it more enjoyable
Change the cutscene
by Iampolarpenguin on 2019/12/21 21:03
I’ve been digging the same hole for 92 levels. The hole is more than 60 feet deep, how thick is this wall? A bit of a let down but still playable.
Terrible Game
by oldmanbigcock on 2019/12/20 04:36
Obviously bought reviews and inflated the score. The game is like an anagram game for first graders. The “story” makes no sense and the words in the game have nothing to do with the story. This is just a lazy effort to get ad traffic. Don’t waste your time on this.
OK Concept - Sketchy Devs
by TheBlackRonPaul on 2019/12/20 04:07
Game is entirely built around draining your wallet. Devs don’t even try to hide it. It’s a cash grab, and I recommend finding a different word game app for this and other reasons. The dictionary it uses will also not recognize proper nouns, unless it is an arbitrarily chosen proper noun for the level (such as a country name), as well as arbitrarily allowing certain standard English words because I guess they’re vulgar? But somehow proper medical vocabulary is vulgar, but not several other slang and hateful terms, some of which would generally be considered highly offensive and are without any other meanings. So in short, the dictionary is not only incomplete, it is completely arbitrary rather than using a standard boggle or scrabble word list. Shame on these devs and others like them that can’t make a game that is sold on its merits and has to resort to micro transaction currencies for revenue. Its no secret that this model only makes money because it targets a small percentage of players with addictions, so continuing to use this model in light of this well-known information is not just a cop-out, or bad for the game market, but actually evil.

Please fix the daily puzzle day 122.
Past 2 updates destroyed this game.
by mikereedny on 2019/12/11 00:26
I played this game almost daily since Apr 2019. I made the mistake to update it twice recently, and the game is now as enjoyable as an enema. The daily puzzle no longer works and the game now wants serious cash for coins for bonus words. There is no real need for the coins to begin with. App now deleted.
Bug in latest version was fixed quickly!
by BJ Reed on 2019/12/10 21:51
The daily puzzle wasn’t working right. But the creator quickly fixed it. Awesome! I like the different aspects to this game. The challenges are all different from each other, making it fun to play!

I really enjoy the game. But the daily challenge is not working. All of the blocks are only on top of another just wanted the creator to know. Maybe an update?
Too many bugs
by Spine apple on 2019/12/09 20:57
I had this game and reached level 300 with over 3500 coins. One day the app froze up on the daily puzzle. I emailed the company but no one ever responded. I had to uninstall and reinstall the game on my phone losing all my coins and progress. That was 3 months ago. 3 days ago there was an update to the game which I installed and again the daily puzzle froze up not allowing me to do anything. I have emailed the company 3 times but the refuse to respond. If I uninstall this time I will not reinstall.
Not working

Ridiculous
by PistolStar13 on 2019/12/08 17:14
This is so stupid. I thought that I will be following clues from the story to guess words to help him escape. But it's just another word guessing game. There is no depth or meaning to anything you do.

Mediocre at best
by IChrisMudd on 2019/12/07 05:32
Too many ads and must have been developed by someone with very little knowledge of the English language, which is exactly what you don’t want in a word game.
App rarely works
by Paulie858 on 2019/12/04 14:56
This game is nothing even close to what was advertised. There are very few scenes at all and even fewer that are anything other than a picture of a rock. And to top it off, it seems like every time they update the app something about the app stops working. For instance, the app was updated a little over a month ago and their Daily Puzzle hasn’t worked since then. Now, I like word puzzles and this game has no shortage of them. That’s why I gave it 2 stars. But it really deserves less. Come on, guys. Get your act together. Fix your app. Make it what you said it would be. Make what you have into something that works.
It’s ok
by B0BbYB on 2019/12/02 23:34
I love the single story mode. I never saw the ads everyone was talking about. However, the tournaments are bogus. When I get 5 wins, the other user can solve the puzzle in two turns. Wheel of fortune pros couldn’t even solve these puzzles with the few letters showing on the board. Makes me think it’s a bot.

Game doesn’t work
by SCAxeman on 2019/11/16 19:32
The game seems based on a generic framework that just doesn’t work on Apple phones. You can find words from a selection of letters, and that’s about it. Virtually every other aspect of the game, and the story is broken. None of the other buttons work. Most of the ‘progress’ is aimed at getting you to buy ‘hints’ that you don’t need, with real world money. Skip this one, it’s a poorly put together cash harvester.
Daily challenges m
by Ms.Ladii on 2019/11/15 20:47
I have been playing faithfully since I downloaded it. I actually find the game fun because I’m a nerd 🤓at heart 🙃 I even play both the puzzle on the side and the daily puzzles My problem is after so many daily puzzles (I’m on “Day 2187” and it’s linked to my FB account), they have stopped showing puzzles on the daily and every time I even try to open the daily puzzle it does not allow me to back out to the menu of the game. I literally have to close the app fully (including “swiping it away” on my phone and reopen it just to play the regular levels. Hope this can be fixed an you add more daily puzzles 🧩 . Thanks
FALSE ADVERTISING! Repetitive ads and pointless scenes - ANNOYING!
by His♡Hachiko™ on 2019/11/15 19:26
I downloaded this game under the assumption the gameplay was solving word puzzles for usable in game items to help break out an innocent inmate with a clever storyline attached, but the actual game is absolutely BORING & nothing like it was advertised! You solve simple word puzzles, but only 1 in 10 puzzles actually produce an in game item. The rest of the time it's pointless word solutions that produce 30 second video ad pop ups followed by the same repetitive scene of the inmate dumping out rocks or a screen stating how many inches were dug, which in itself has no bearing on the gameplay and is a pointless waste of time! This game had such potential to be fun, but the ridiculous amount of ads, pathetic reuse of the same scene over and over, pointless unincorporated dig measurements, and the lack of any cohesive storyline made me delete after 30 levels. I cannot say this enough - I DO NOT RECOMMEND WASTING YOUR TIME ON THIS GAME!
Misleading and monotonous.
by RabidRat69 on 2019/11/04 21:38
Like many others have stated, “The ads are misleading”. There is no figuring out how to escape or wrong/right choices to make. Just over and over making a key word out of a jumble of letters. It gets monotonous. At level 832, I think I’ve given it a more than fair trial period. In the trash it goes.
Was great until recent update
by Ti1948gr17is on 2019/10/29 19:42
Until recent update I loved this game. Now the goal is just about the money. I don’t mind the ads. But functioning to push you into paid hints is a bit dirty. Sadly, leaving soon.
Great game but........... please read
by 👱‍♂️👱‍♂️👱‍♂️ on 2019/10/27 19:48
This is a great game when I say this game in a ad this game looked really fun, but when I played a few levels I realized that it was way different in the ad! It was still decent but in the ad it looked a lot more fun! I have seen ads like this in other games though. Why do you lie in your ads? If you were to add what you put in the ad I would give this game five stars. The reason I gave this game three stars is because two of the stars are worth the game by itself. The other star is worth the little amount of ads! This game is alright to try!

So this game y’all complaining about is apparently not the game for you But who cares about being a girl it’s a guy get over it I love that it’s challenging as the lvls go up. And the ad’s help fyi if you want to spend money on it ok but your not actually playing the game. If your smart you won’t need to buy coins; earn them and don’t complain, but I love this game and I am very happy my friend showed me.
Don’t play the 💩 game
by sguerrera on 2019/10/26 22:15
I regretfully played and I’m at level 14 where the developer is not even trying anymore... he just threw unlimited levels so u can’t pass level 14 cause he doesn’t have any more levels... great job!! It’s always the same thing... same animations which don’t even make sense... skip this game and go d/l another game... that is going to be 💯 better than this one!! TRUST ME!!
If you want a story look somewhere else
by Y205king on 2019/10/19 11:36
This game is incredibly misleading, it advertises as a story when in reality the only real progress I’ve seen came after more than 70 of the dull and boring puzzles. Wouldn’t recommend to my worst enemy so please save yourself from doing 50 of these terrible puzzle which repeat constantly.
Lost all progress
by JCooke51 on 2019/10/18 00:44
I was almost at day 1100. Suddenly the daily puzzle stopped working and would freeze the whole game. I eventually uninstalled and reinstalled the game hoping that would fix the issue. Instead, I’ve lost all my progress, and don’t see a cloud save of my old progress. I don’t have it in me to try to get that far again.
why would you do this to me:(7777777
by so cool🤩 on 2019/10/17 22:56
why does this part of the game where it shows you how to break useless tiles it does sometimes break usefull tiles🤯

After multiple tries i finally escaped from jail, only to find myself enmeshed in an endless cycle of word puzzles while standing on a beach. No challenge anymore. Then, started the anti-Trump ads: I’m deleting this game as a result! SAYONARA!
Scam!
by epicicecream on 2019/10/11 12:37
I got this app thinking it would be like the adds but no! Easy boring and most of all a scam!
Confused
by Nickname#Love on 2019/10/06 18:36
So the only reason I don’t like it is because when I searched up “creepy games” this actually appeared. I’m very confused!
Idea good execution bad
by 1y1y2y on 2019/10/06 14:06
I like the idea of this game and it is fun to play. I don’t see the point of the prison break theme which seems to go nowhere and what really annoys me is that is keeps telling me words don’t exist when they do. For example violet and basil came up as not being words. Someone needs to do a dictionary review!
Terrible
by jullinaannaiess on 2019/10/05 18:16
This the worst game ever there is a fake advertisement and very boring I can tell you from being a player of the game !!!!!!
False advertisement
by GuitarKevin on 2019/10/04 17:08
I discovered this app through another in-game advertisement. The add showed a prisoner trying to escape and what looked like a user interactively guessing words to navigate him out of the cell or other rooms by putting him in a case or flirting with the guard. None of that happens. All you do is guess words over and over and every once in a while there is a little video that shows the prisoner digging his way out. I’m on level/day 550 and nothing has changed. The words can be challenging, and for that I’ll give it 2 stars. Otherwise it a boring, non satisfying game.
Misleading
by JT00Fly23 on 2019/10/03 03:21
Like most of you I thought it would be fun because of the ads but you don’t get to do any of that stuff
boring game
by Daniel3701 on 2019/10/02 01:28
this game is trash. it’s nothing like the ads and it’s literally the same thing over and over.
THIS IS A REAL AND HONEST REVIEW!
by A Real_Player on 2019/03/25 02:15
As a real player of this game, I can say that this game is not that good . If you are planning to downloading this, because of the ads, than I can tell that the ads are false. You will never have a level where you try look like a girl, and theirs no level where you have to look strong/ serious, so don’t play this game because the ads. The core game mechanics are as you would’ve expected, and some words/ levels give you a cutscene, however, The cutscenes sometimes don’t make sense with the correct word, even then the cutscenes are lazy. This game is FULL of ads (tho that’s with mobile game, so I won’t talk about it that much, that’s just something to keep in mind.) If you are getting bored of regular mode, you can play “challenge levels” which Is the EXACT SAME THING as regular mode, with probably harder words. (I haven’t played that much of it but still.) Does this game deserve almost 5 stars? NO. This game is really only fun if your bored, and even then you WILL get bored of the game after a couple of weeks. ( I hope this helps someone.)
Fun but disappointing
by Sm504 on 2019/03/16 22:59
You know how all the ads show they guy trying to be a girl, well. It doesn’t show that in the game all you do is type letters to get a word and it just shows you the same thing over, and over, and over, and over again! The game is really boring but fun! The background music is weird, it is kinda annoying! But the person just does the same thing! It doesn’t do what the add shows where you match the word to the picture and try to escape prison like that. NO! It just tells you to type letters to make a word! This game is just like word scapes and all the other games that tell you to match letters! But at first when I saw the ad I was like “I want to match things up with the picture and try to escape!” Then when I went into the game and started play I was like “ THIS IS NOTHING LIKE THE AD!!!!!” Even though the game is disappointing it is still educational. It tells you to spell words and they make it hard, which is good! But I am still disappointed in how the ad was and how when you play the game they are nothing like each other! I would give this app 2 stars. I like the hello stars game better then this!! I am going to express my anger now! “ THIS GAME SHOULD NOT HAVE 4.8 STARS! IT SHOULD HAVE 2 STARS!!” I am so sorry about that. But I am just very mad and disappointed 😓😢😭😒😞☹️🙁😕😟😔😣😖😫😩🥺😢😭😤😠😡🤬🥵😥😓😰🤕🤒😿🙀😾👎🏽👎🏽 Well, that is what I think about the game. I AM REALLY SAD THAT IT IS NOT LIKE THE AD SHOWS!!!
Decent but misleading
by Alice Adderly on 2019/02/21 23:28
I’m sure most of you people are here are here because of the ads for this game that looked interesting where there are stickmen trying to escape little cutscenes and when you reach a situation you have to type in the tool you might need to continue along with various animations making it seem like a very interesting and funny game to play. HOWEVER the ads literally are NOTHING like the game the only thing that’s the same is the fact that your in a prison, spelling words, and the assets. I thought the game would be interesting so I downloaded it, I am now on day 250 Nothing has changed its just a spelling words and digging in a hole (that’s probably made of titanium metal) Endlessly (basically) the ads are misleading and the best part about the ads were the animations but the only animations you will get here is: the guy making progress on his stupid hole, Him dumping out rocks from a bag, getting a new item and some other crappy 3 dollar animations sure in you defense you might say the game is good and the ads are just a little misleading but the ads are what make the game BAD not to mention while playing the game you will encounter multiple ads and remember how the internet works kids: Misleading Ads+game+advertisements in the game=money So the point is that they need to either A: make their game like the ads, or B: Remove the old ads and add ads that actually are the GAME.
Annoying, a little boring, playable.
by Moonjinx on 2019/06/02 03:05
I did not see the ads for this game. That being said, this game is annoying. I played through 3....levels maybe? A good hour or so. I don’t really see the point in playing this. There are spelling errors all over the game, that has me wary that some of the words I’m trying to guess are even real words. I didn’t run into any misspellings I had to try and guess, but none of the words were very challenging. Disappointing for a game that had a lot of promise. You unlock items that give you bonuses that I don’t really understand, I got soap that increased my relaxation I think, but what does that actually do? I didn’t notice anything. I had an opportunity to increase its potency, but I didn’t see the point. The only upgrade that made sense to me that I totally clicked on the ads to watch was the spoon upgrade that increased the rate that I dug. Still, I played a good 20 minutes after that, and while my progress increased dramatically, I didn’t really see how it was helping me. I did like the fact that I got to choose if I wanted to watch ads, that’s why I give it the 3 star rating. The guys cartoon faces were the most annoying thing to me, but that might be a personal taste.
Amazing
by Liz uno on 2018/11/25 07:41
I downloaded this game today and never had so much fun I know everyone opinion is different but with my disability’s I have trouble focusing and learning certain things. For some reason I am focusing and actually giving myself a challenge trying to figure out the words even though you can have multiple words(if not right one they give you coins as long as it’s a word) if you can’t figure it out you get items to help out I haven’t used one yet plus if you make a word that isn’t anywhere where they are looking for they will start to subtract some letters to me this Game is challenging to me may not be to some people but at least I can give myself a challenge thank you.
very disappointed
by .lyd. on 2019/03/01 00:20
i’m assuming most of you have downloaded this game because you saw ads for it everywhere and it looked fun! right away i was disappointed as soon as i searched it in the app store. the word “persevere” in one of the pictures is spelled, “persever”. right away, i lowered my standards. i opened the app and thought it was alright. i spelled a few words, and the guy dug a whole into a wall, then we would go outside to dump out the rocks. it’s a VERY BORING app!! that’s all he did. not to mention that no one who spoke english well reviewed the app before it was published. half the stuff it says in the app doesn’t make any sense. also, there is no music!! i like playing my games with background music or at least some sound effect but nope :( overall, this app is poorly made, and does not deserve to have 4.8 stars. i have no idea how it has that many. don’t get this app unless you enjoy spelling random words that have nothing to do with what you’re trying to accomplish in the game. for example, it’s not even like “he’s hungry, what should he eat?” it just gives you random letters and makes you spell words with no hints or clues whatsoever about what you’re trying to spell. i’ve never been more disappointed in an app before. thank you for your time, and i do not recommend “wordstory”.
Fun but glitchy
by AgentofLaw on 2019/01/13 10:40
I really enjoy word games so I thought I’d give this a try. I like the story and the objects the character can use that gets added throughout the game via level solutions. I feel they could add a lot more to the story though. Especially the cut scene animations. They tend to repeat too much, so it feels like there isn’t much progress happening. My biggest problem though is with the glitches. The daily challenge hasn’t been working correctly. The first problem was it wanted the word “Monaco” (I even used coins to make sure that was the word) and I kept telling me it wasn’t a legal word. Today’s daily challenge isn’t letting me select letters to put in the empty boxes. If you want people to spend money on a game like this you got to address these issues quickly. And it wouldn’t hurt to expand the story and add more diverse cut scenes to show the character advancing. After all, it is what separates this word game from many others. I would give this a higher rating if it wasn’t for the glitches in the daily challenges.
Nothing like I imagined
by Unicorn girl5665 on 2019/06/16 20:50
At first I saw the ad and thought it was going to be fun because it showed that the guy was dressing up like a girl and all that other funny stuff so he could escape. But once I got the app and started playing I realized he was just doing the same thing over again. Yeah I get it's also supposed to be educational but the words are way to easy and I'm pretty sure that some of the words are misspelled. I always see the reviews first and saw that a lot of them were very negative but I saw that it had a 4.8 so I still got the app not even thinking about the negative reviews I saw. But now I think I should have considered the negative reviews because I wasted about an hour on this game and it wasn't even fun like the ads. I'm very disappointed because I expected this game to be fun and educational but it's not. It's really boring and not very challenging. The words in the app are first grade words and I'm in the seventh grade. There should at least be an easy, medium, and hard level so that we could challenge ourselves. But from what I've seen there's not. So I'm giving this app not two but one star because I feel like this game isn't all that great like it shows in the ads.
How does this game have such a high rating???
by Reedear on 2019/01/16 06:36
So, I was intrigued by the ad for the game, probably like most of you. I see in the ad different scenarios to escape from different areas and the words you figure out are supposed to help the guy try to escape and you get to see a funny little animation of if it goes right or if it goes wrong. That was interesting and worth playing. I download the game and I’m figuring out words that have nothing to do with anything. There’s no clue to a word, so you’re figuring it out from the air. For many levels, the guy is still digging out a hole in the wall. And his “progress” is very slow. I’ve read other reviews that say he’ll still be digging for many, many levels. So, when do we get to actually helping him escape or see the funny animations? I get that that might take some time to get to, but don’t show me an ad where you’re showing the last bit of progress when it’s going to take me 50+ levels to actually get me there. Show me the slow gameplay, so I actually know what I’m getting into. I can see the fun in the game, but watching ads and making little progress over time just isn’t for me.
What?!?
by Lovesguineapigs! on 2019/04/15 04:18
I have to imagine at least a large portion of these good reviews are somehow manipulated/fake, or maybe they removed negative reviews to alter the overall rating, because this is truly an awful game. For starters, this game has absolutely nothing to do with the ads. But even then it makes no sense. There is little objective to the words you end up making. You’ll end up putting words like cat and fox and you’ll pass the level, but those words have nothing to do with a prison break and they are not shown to have anything to do with the game’s objective. Also, many of the bonus words u can spell are literally not actual words, at least not in English. Words like “sed” and “hors” are validated in the game. I even googled them because for a second I thought maybe i was just dumb and didn’t know the words, but they do not exist. And there are a LOT of “words” like this in the game. There’s nothing wrong with not being fluent in English and developing an app, however it’s probably fair to say you should make an word game app in English if that’s the case. Anyway, perhaps the game will improve but as of now, it’s a waste of anyone’s time.
It’s Ok
by Angel in Thrall on 2019/05/21 05:49
I’ve been playing this game for awhile now. It does progress, albeit slowly. My problem is that the game is currently frozen. I solved a puzzle fairly far into the game, and it’s just frozen now. I can’t close the game, or get it to do anything. I tried the “App Support” link, but that only takes me to “Terms of Service”. There is no support for in-game errors or glitches. I didn’t see any of the ads that others have said as the main reason they downloaded the game, so I didn’t really have any expectations for how it should appear, etc. It does tend toward repetitiveness in appearance, but it does progress if you stay with it long enough. But it’s beyond frustrating to have it frozen up on me now. I’d like to keep playing, but if it makes me start all over once it decides to un-freeze itself, I’ll be dumping it. I have tried the “App Support” repeatedly, thinking I may have hit the wrong thing, but nope. It only takes me to “Terms of Service”.
Very disappointed
by CheezitVlogz on 2019/03/17 13:35
Most people download this app because of all the cool looking and fun ads. The ads feature multiple scenes where you need to spell one word with the given letters, and if you spell the word wrong, you fail. NONE of that happens in the real game. The ads are NOTHING like what the game has to offer. I got so bored of it I uninstalled the app at day 28 because it was such a waste of time and nothing interesting happened. What actually happens in the app is the guy does try to escape prison but all he does it dig a little hole and occasionally go outside to dump the rocks out. My question is, IF HES DIGGING A HOLE TO ESCAPE, HOW THE HECK DOES HE GO OUTSIDE?!?? do the cops just let him out? It makes no sense. Also, the game is sooooo boring. Instead of being given all the letters to try and figure out the word, your given a bunch of random letters scrambled all together which is nothing like the ad had displayed. Please make the game like the ads to make it interesting. I have no clue how this app has 4.8 stars. The creator probably made a bunch of bot accounts and rated the game 5 stars. I recommend deleting this app because it will waste your time.
OK Concept - Sketchy Devs
by TheBlackRonPaul on 2019/12/20 04:07
Game is entirely built around draining your wallet. Devs don’t even try to hide it. It’s a cash grab, and I recommend finding a different word game app for this and other reasons. The dictionary it uses will also not recognize proper nouns, unless it is an arbitrarily chosen proper noun for the level (such as a country name), as well as arbitrarily allowing certain standard English words because I guess they’re vulgar? But somehow proper medical vocabulary is vulgar, but not several other slang and hateful terms, some of which would generally be considered highly offensive and are without any other meanings. So in short, the dictionary is not only incomplete, it is completely arbitrary rather than using a standard boggle or scrabble word list. Shame on these devs and others like them that can’t make a game that is sold on its merits and has to resort to micro transaction currencies for revenue. Its no secret that this model only makes money because it targets a small percentage of players with addictions, so continuing to use this model in light of this well-known information is not just a cop-out, or bad for the game market, but actually evil.
Not worth playing through (Version 1.5.3)
by HughJorgan10 on 2019/02/26 23:19
This game starts off decent as you progress through the Chapters. You unlock upgrades and earn coins just by completing each level. The upgrades are purely cosmetic because it doesn't matter how fast you dig; you still have to complete each chapter just to see the next part of storyline. The shop is a joke with nothing to spend the coins on. They are only useful for blowing up letters and giving hints. Only play Chapters 1-10 because after that Chapters 11-13 are a total waste of time. THIS GAME IS SO GOOD that it will let you play through 1478 more levels that add absolutely nothing to the storyline. I LOVE IT SO MUCH that I'm greeted with an "All Levels Cleared" button at the end of Level 2000. "See you in the next Chapter"... yeah right clowns, get a clue. Increasing the amount of levels in each chapter to extend playing time is the best example of artificial difficulty. The game tricks you into thinking there's an epilogue after the Main Story but there isn't. It's just the same still shots with speech bubbles scribbled on the screen. What an absolute letdown.
Pretty boring
by SuperHonestyTime on 2019/01/15 19:02
First off: The ads for this game are absolutely false. You aren’t trying to solve the word puzzle and if you get it wrong the guard catches you. You’re simply solving word puzzles. The entire game is basically every few words you solve a day goes by. Sometimes when you solve a word a simple screen play appears. Usually in the screenplay you’re either given a new tool, you’re dumping dirt outside, or your playing with this random bird. I did see a cop one time, which you bribe with a bottle of wine. But that was it, and it doesn’t seem to have been related to anything. And nothing really happens after that. The hole never changes size and there’s no way to win the game. You just keep solving words with no end in sight. This game is absolutely pointless and is just a way to waste time. So if that’s what you’re looking for I’d recommend it, but that’s not what I look for in a game. I really don’t know how it has so many positive reviews unless they are mostly fake. I doubt any of them are real. After 106 days I’ve dug 78 feet into my wall.... how thick are these walls?
Meh..
by Chime720 on 2019/01/30 01:49
It’s good, it’s fun, but the walls are like a kilometer or kilometre or something thick! When I thought I was almost done, I was only a few HUNDRED MILLIONS LEVELS AWAY FROM BREAKING OUT. Not literally, but STILL. I don’t mind the ads as much as other people, but they do get annoying. It’s actually getting pretty boring, as all you do is find words. Maybe add longer words as a challenge, or maybe make the wall a bit thinner. AND ADD MORE ANIMATION THINGS. PLEASE. It was fun, but not anymore. Please, look at at 5 star games about words and get some inspiration, or think of ideas because I CANNOT AFFORD TO LET THIS CUTE LITTLE GUY DIE ALONE IN JAIL BECAUSE I GOT BORED OF THIS... THING. Oh it was a game. When I saw an ad for this, I thought it looked cool. Now, I’m starting to take that back. I feel a bit of regret for getting this game, but otherwise, it’s kinda good. I kinda like the story. KIND OF. Wait, but if he’s innocent, why is he breaking the walls of jail? :/ ? I guess we’ll just have to WAIT and SEE IF HE EVER EVEN GETS OUT OF THIS... THING.
Terrible game
by 🤓🤓🤪🤪 on 2019/01/28 17:28
I have been playing this game for a long time and it just keeps repeating itself over and over again this is such a boring game and I see no point of it and it’s nothing like I see In the adds this is a crappy game and I do not recommend it. I have just looked at others reviews saying they same and they are ahead of me and saying that when your at day 126+ your still digging holes in the wall, throwing rocks on the ground. Also the words you find have absolutely nothing to do with the actions your guy finds it’s a pointless and endless game that waste your time and after all the terrible reviews they haven’t fixed anything!! I don’t recommend this game. The adds lie and show the you want they once you download it, it’s the worst thing ever. I understand that people make adds for the game to make you buy it but the ad shouldn’t be the complete opposite of the real thing. I would like if they made the game like the adds. I only downloaded this game because of the adds it seemed fun but now it’s just boring. Pls fix it.!
A disappointing glitchy mess of an game
by Berryhalo on 2019/04/09 13:34
Word Story is a boring game that is nothing like what they advertise. Where you do sneaky tricks like disguise yourself as a girl, fake pregnancy, dress up as a cop. All of the cool stuff not in the game trust me I forced myself through a lot of it to try and see. It treads a thin line over not being false advertisement. It’s so boring with the same animations over and over. The game is also super buggy for me it crashes if I beat a level or find a word that is not the word the game wants. And if it doesn’t crash if I find a word that is not the answer the letters will stay stuck on the answer boxes and you can’t see what is the world you are typing with out exiting the game again and reopening it. It was mostly a higher level bug and even though they claimed to have “fixed it” five days ago it has not been fixed. I am extremely disappointed at this game and I am tired of all the glitches so I’m uninstalling this game and not recommending it to anyone. Word Story does not deserve its 4.8 score more like a 1.8 score.
This is stupid
by Addicting Games Guy on 2019/02/22 23:27
Well this game is interesting. The only real good part of this game is that eventually it does become real challenging, and actually requires a brain or dumb luck to complete. The other parts are pretty bad. The scenes that happen in game are so bad that it’s hilarious, the way things literally fall from the sky. This game tries to get you to watch ads to get boosts that speed up digging time. This however does not matter as there is simply a level system, so the devs are straight up lying to you. Speaking of lying, the ads for this game are actually hilariously terrible. They follow the trend of “make it look stupid easy and say people fail it often so that people watch our ads to prove themselves.” This is scummy already, but they go further by using non existing scenarios in the ads, when only one terrible one exists that to my knowledge did not get an ad. Overall, this game is scummy and only got 2 stars because it does provide a challenge if you can stand this [heck] fest
Misleading
by rmarsmedic on 2019/03/04 19:34
This game is the worst. I get ads on it all the time and thought that it was interesting. Once I downloaded the game, it was nothing like the ads. There is literally no story line besides the character trying to dig a hole in a wall, and dumping rocks outside out of a weird little brown bag. The only “fun” part was trying to find the words, which by the way have no relevance to the game. They are just random words most of the time, unlike the ads that make it seem like whatever word you spell is what is going to help you escape prison. But this was such a waste a time, because I was playing the game for a long time waiting for something to happen and nothing did. If this game was something like the ads I saw online I would be way more interested, but again, it’s is not. Just don’t download this game, and don’t waste your time on it. I normally do not leave reviews but I felt that I needed to leave one on this app just because of how much it surprised me that something like this could be so misleading.
Please help!
by darleneplay76 on 2019/02/16 22:32
1st: This game is loosely based on the movie 'Shawshank Redemption'!! Just so the ones that don't know now know. 2nd: I gave this game 3 stars cause for some reason I've noticed that while I'm playing I'll lose feet of progress of my tunnel!! Whats going on? Is it me? Is it the game? Please help! If it's me please tell me what I'm doing wrong but if it's the game then please fix this. I just started playing the other day and I was 36 feet into the tunnel and I do a few word puzzles and then it says my progress is only 24 feet! So please what's going on? I don't understand at all. The ads are irratating but I can deal with that but losing my progress for no reason, that I can't deal with. Fix that and u will get 5 stars from me. Thanks and I hope to see a reply to this soon cause it's bothering me so bad I'm on the verge of deleting. Also I agree with some of the other players....it would be nice to have some more cut scenes. Maybe have him interact with other prisoners and I think the words u have to find should be more linked to the scenes. For example, show him outside playing ball with others and have the word puzzles be about the ballgame and so forth. Or him doing his prison job one day in the laundry and the puzzle words be connected to the laundry. Just to keep is a lil more entertained in the story a lil more.
CATFISHED
by the one who got catfished on 2019/03/30 18:17
I got this game bc of the ads (most of you guys did as well... I am on day 60 I am making progress... but all it shows is the guy digging a freaking wall hidden from a poster, and dumping out a bag of rocks!!! The app pictures shows “make new friends” all it does was the stick figure shaking hands with this guy... on the ads it shows this girl trying to become pregnant by putting a pillow in her shirt so she can escape... so you type the word pillow and she gets a pillow... NO THAT IS NOT HOW IT WORKS!!! You type words all the time and it does nothing... the only one that is like the ads was the first challenge of this guy pretending to be a nurse.. but he failed and it had the button “continue” but it never did the next challenge was the joker trying to kidnap kids, and it wants me to reach day 3000 and I asked Siri how long that will take and she said 8.08 years and I am not wasting my life on this game.... I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED!!! 🤮🤮🤮
Good time waster
by Takkycat on 2019/03/16 14:34
This is a good game if you need to eat up a few minutes of time. The story is not much and the ads are annoying, but, unlike a lot of games with in app purchases, it very playable without buying anything! There is no move/level limit to tempt you to buy currency to get past and the in game currency is fairly generous (especially in early levels). If you can resist getting hints than you end up with a lot of money for when the words get harder. Also, it does let you close out of the involuntary ads quickly. I'm not going to criticize an app for having ads or an in app purchases system. The creators need money to survive just like the rest of us, but this game actually has an overall very fair system or, at least, a LOT more fair than a lot of other app games.
Mystery Words Were A Waste of Time
by duhflyinasian on 2018/12/13 21:58
I’ve gotten as far as DAY 129 or something, and have yet to get my character to escape because I haven’t made anymore progress after realizing how repetitive this game can get. I’ve also realized before I got to DAY 100 that the mystery words would have nothing to do with the story majority of the time. Despite not having to pay for items that will help give you hints what the mystery word could be by watching the endless amounts of ads they have, it annoyed me more than anything that I felt like I was wasting my time when the mystery words were “could”, “would”, “they”, and so on. I agree with the others who’ve commented that this game had so much potential, and I wasn’t bothered by the fact that the ads helped me get free items to progress further in the game, but guessing the mystery words that had nothing to do with the story definitely got me to stop playing.
IT'S NOTHING LIKE THE ADS!
by Baltimore Walker on 2019/03/06 21:11
When I first saw this in an ad, it looked like a really fun game! It was like a more modern version of the original stick-figure jail break game; I liked the idea! I got the game, and I was completely disappointed by the story. I played this up to chapter 4, and literally NONE of the scenes, animations, characters, movements, story, dialogue, CHANGED! In other words, it's a complete ripoff. I also don't like how the game has no difficulty or "consequences" what so ever! Failing in this game just doesn't exist! You constantly mess up the same thing over and over again and don't even get sent back to the start or your story changes, which makes it extremely boring. In the end of every ad of your game, the "person" fails to spell a word and their character dies, so that means APPARENTLY THAT ISN'T HOW IT WORKS IN THE ACTUAL GAME! To fix these disappointments, I would either change your ads to how the game actually is, or change your game to how the ads describe it.
LATEST UPDATE RUINED THE GAME.
by Jules1500 on 2019/06/10 12:52
I’ve been playing Word Story for awhile now. I really like the game; however, the new update is a real disappointment. Before the update you could watch an ad and get 60 coins when you needed them for the bombs that explode letters you don’t need. The bombs cost 60 coins when you need them. This worked out great because you weren’t using up all the coins you have stored up for that purpose. Now with the latest update when you watch an ad you only get 25 coins; however, the bombs still cost you 60 coins. Is this your way of making the player watch more ads to get the coins for the bombs? I don’t think this is fair for the player. If you don’t have enough coins stored up you will have to watch three ads for 25 coins each in order to use one bomb. Please change it back.
Stunned
by digital dude101 on 2018/10/22 01:26
I love the creativity put into this game, it go’s from digging with a stick to a spoon to a hammer and so on. I was really stunned, I thought it would’ve been like the stick man series were each action would come to an ending or a death but you had to create the word/action until I found myself digging with a stick😳. I also found myself overconfident, I would feel so confident that the word was the state Ohio just to find out that Ohio wasn’t a “legal word” lol. Over all I think it’s a great game👍🏻 and if you love words and like to challenge your iQ then go ahead just don’t blame me when you find out a word you’ve been using for a long time isn’t a “legal word”.
Disappointing even as a time-waster
by Amgant on 2019/04/16 22:44
I didn’t see the ads people are talking about so I didn’t have super high expectations when I downloaded this, but I will say that the plot seems fun until eventually, it’s just like a hundred or more levels of stagnant storyline where literally nothing happens except the character saying stuff. It has an insane amount of levels to beat the game which usually doesn’t bother me but because I was drawn to the plot and storyline, I kept playing and I got to level 705(I’m sure it goes up to 1000 or something) and now I’m writing this review because it’s honestly disappointing that nothing really happens when he breaks out of jail for hundreds more levels. people should know that its probably not going to be rewarding to beat it. Someone said this game is only good for being bored and can make you even more bored. That is true. :/
Ads are FAKE
by vivianne lowen on 2019/03/30 21:09
You probably downloaded this app, looking forward to playing a fun game were you escape from jail. After watching the ads you would think “oh, this looks really fun”. In the actual game though, you don’t get to fake being pregnant, you don’t escape from the ceiling, you just simply stay in your cell and spell out words. The most activity that happens in the game is digging a dumb hole that after hundreds of days, still leads to nothing. The ads make the game seem super fun and excited and look really fun to play, but once you download the app you just spell out words. The game is boring, and the after seeing the ads you get really disappointed after playing the game. For me, this app definitely does not deserve a 4.8 rating. It doesn’t even deserve a three. I would honestly give it a one star rating. Misleading ads, boring, and dumb. Don’t download unless you’re looking for a huge disappointment. 😕
Misleading and glitchy....
by VectorMagnus on 2019/04/20 23:35
I, like most people that downloaded this game, downloaded it because I saw an ad that showcased a word game with silly animations. It seemed intriguing in thought why not give it a shot. This game is nothing like what it advertises. You are basically a stick figure digging a hole in the wall and dumping out the debris outside the prison. You spell words, random things you spell fall on your head, and you dig your hole. That’s it. After a few levels I begin having issues with the game freezing. The music still plays but when you try to tap on a letter or anything else in the user interface nothing happens. So I have to force close and start over. This happens constantly to the point where I see no point in continuing to play as it’s ridiculously frustrating. In its current state, I can’t in good faith recommend anyone to play this game.
Ugh
by Mynyato on 2019/02/11 17:23
Okay so, I do have to agree that this game is fun to an extent. Yes, it is a very good time waster and it does sometimes make you think. Some of the problems I have with this game is that there are just way too many ads. I get around a 5 second to 30 second ad every 2 to 3 puzzles and it’s just very irritating. Another thing, is that when I downloaded this game and started to play it, I had started to notice that the word puzzles were just random words and some of them just didn’t make any sense at all, I at least thought they would have added in some puzzles in the game that were prison related or not stupidly random, one of the ones that I had got, the word was, “HAS”. Like, who in the world would have thought of that, and some of the words just never really made any sense, it’s semi hard to get coins to purchase “Hints”, and I just really thought this game was just a cash grab and or a quick way to get some money and not really put much effort into the puzzles and words that you had to find. Overall, this game is both worth the download and not worth the download, if you want to have a good time waster, download this game, but if you hate constant ad interruptions and the unending amount of random as h*ll words, don’t download this game.
Falsely Advertised But Mildly Entertaining
by SaraBLQ on 2019/01/27 16:32
This game has many, MANY, ads for it, as I’m sure why most of you are here. These ads do not show the real game. This game would probably be WAY more fun if it was high action and you had to escape like that, but that is not the case. You just slowly and tediously dig away at a wall forever. I presume this is the case because making the already poor quality animations was too much work for them. And 7/10 times when you solve a puzzle it doesn’t even help your guy. It just gets through the day without any new animation. If you do like word games, this game is still fun, but not as fun as the concept the ads show. I’d also like to bet that you can’t even get to the ocean, because the day says “???” But that’s just an educated guess.
Lacks plot progression...has tons of ads
by mysticbluebmw on 2019/02/06 21:32
I’m on day 477 and almost 700 yards in, but for the last few weeks and probably 500 yards or so nothing has progressed. I’ve been in the the tunnel for what seems like 90% of my time playing the game which has been 3-4 weeks. I play about 1-2 hours a day in my free time. But it’s always the same; easy to medium to hard, then repeat over and over and over with no more story progression after the 1st couple of days playing. Totally stale. Update: about 550 days in now and basically completed story. They added an xtra scene that is just plain lame. Plus all the words have bearing anything except for a few in the very beginning. Could be any simple word from the dictionary with no hint as to what. The only only hints are taking letters away by watching ads...meh...boring now.
Wired...but FUN!!!
by 1stCeye on 2019/03/02 03:35
A very easy going game that you cannot help but to smile, then laugh at! Words are available to score extra coins...and it collects into a chest! The poor prisoner is obeying most of the rules, but what is an innocent person to do??? It’s perfect to sort of stretch has your mind and relax...🙈 🤔 it is still early In my game, so more later.....🛸 😎 MUCH LATER: Sorry to say.....I actually got bored.....if the words related to escaping, might have been more fun....but this stick guy got only so far and stalled.....no progress....words from nowhere, no reference to guess with...10 letters to start with for a 7 letter word....then the same old ads....a good game that got moldy....😧😧😧😧😧😧😥😥😥😥
New items?
by Gothitasally on 2018/10/21 15:46
I know you’ve all seen this in the other reviews but why not add another to the pile. The game is pretty fun at first, because we’re getting new items as we play. It’s interesting and we wanna help the little stick guy. The levels seem like they’re getting harder because more and more letters are coming in. But at ~60 levels in, nothings happening. I haven’t played too far, but it seems that the hammer’s the last item. And the levels don’t get any more difficult. It seems it doesn’t go above 6 letters, and there’s so many 3 letter levels. We’re this far in, we don’t need anymore 3 letters. Overall the game is fun but so repetitive. If you want to lure the audience in with new items, then actually make new items. Don’t just stop after 60 levels.
Great game forget the story
by dgzjp on 2019/05/20 16:02
Choosing new words to eliminate letters and finding the right word with the letters remaining is fun and often challenging. The story seems like a silly distraction and is, eventually virtually eliminated from the game. I am over level 750 and have yet to spin and get the mystery box. This defies all reasonable odds. What”s with this? I also have the Day 5 reward for the last 3 days. Anything marked with a ? Is questionable as to if you’ll ever get it. Despite being told that a special challenge would be unlocked after level 3000 I am now told there are only 2000 levels- WHAT”S UP?
Awful, Repetitive, Rinse, Repeat Forever
by carddante on 2019/02/04 16:25
I have no clue how this is the top game in word games. It starts out kind of fun- you are trapped in a jail cell and use the provided letters to find tools to help you escape your cell. Except that only happens once or twice. Then you start digging out and I’ve been digging this hole for 150+ game “days.” Each time it tells you that you make progress- inch by inch. I keep thinking after I reached a certain milestone that I’d get to do something new, but no, you just keep digging with no idea of your progress or how long you still have to go. Even watching the ads (oh God, so many ads) to get a tool like a pick axe doesn’t speed up your advancement rate. I dug 30” with my bare hands and 36” with a pick axe. Anyways, I gave the game more than it’s fair shot and now it’s going in the trash like so many other cash grab advertising games.
Horrible! JUST HORRENDOUS!
by a very angrey person! on 2019/06/19 01:35
This is such a RIP OFF!?!?! I got the game hoping that it would be a fun interesting brain teaser the ads had me thinking it was going to be worth while. Going back to the comments everyone has the same issues. And it’s the truth!! THERE ARE NO SCENES WERE YOUR CHARACTERS MOVE AND TALK TO THE GUARDS!?! THERE IS NO MODE WERE YOU TRY AND ACT PREGNANT!! THERE IS NO TIME WHERE YOU TRY TO LOOK LIKE A JOCK TO SEDUCE A GUARD THERE IS NO TIME YOU TRY TO LOOK LIKE A GIRL TO ESCAPE!! Everything about this game is a lie! I am extremely disappointed in the creators of this game! They lie to get ratings and that’s so WRONG! I would rate this game a 0-10 if there was such but the lowest rating I’m giving is 1-10 they don’t deserve to to have the ratings they have and I’m definitely deleting this game after this. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS GAME FOR ANYONE AT ALL!! The creator should be ashamed this is a JOKE! Always read the reviews before you get the game. I wish I did. :(😡🤬😤
Boring
by Jason C White on 2018/12/28 22:13
The “game” is a story of a stick figure escaping from prison. The story is constantly being interrupted by ads and word jumbles with extra letters. Guessing an incorrect word removes the letters guessed from the correct word. Guessing real words gives “cash” that can be used to buy hints. Watch ads for more “cash”. Also get interrupted by ads. Even had an ad interrupted by another ad. There is no real choice involved with the jumbles, so if you can make “shiv”, “shovel”, and “spoon” with the available letters and “spoon” is their choice for the story that will be the word. While some of words are key to the story many of the jumbles have nothing to do with the story at all... or are crap like a bottle to bribe the guard with for no apparent reason or food eaten in the cell. Ever watch a movie with five scenes eating food for no apparent reason related to the story? No? Probably because it’s boring!
Could B Enjoyable, but not as artistic as it should be.
by DrippyLivv on 2019/02/08 03:31
This game is fun somehow to people who have five stars but HONESTLY this game needs fixing. It doesn’t crash on me, but at the same time is boring. When you see the advertising on a game you’re playing and it just pops up, it looks fun but when you download it, it looks like something ran over a Frankenstein Meme and replaced it as your game. I’m not being rude, but what I mean when I say it should artistic, I don’t mean it has to have colors, I mean it needs to show action because there is no connection between unconditional and worth waiting for. So fix the bugs and maybe i’ll kind of change those stars but honestly i’m am deleting for now. -AJ-
Too many levels with no progress to be made
by jtoihmnm on 2019/01/28 23:39
This game is nothing like what they advertise it to be on other games. I downloaded this game looking to have fun trying to “sneak past the guards” or “helping my cell mate escape”. Neither of these happen it takes FOREVER to make any progress one of the “levels” has 313 levels in order to progress. To me that is in heard of and makes you feel like you are getting nowhere, especially when they the same graphic of your person digging the same tunnel in the same spot time and time again. Don’t waste your time trying to play this. I’d like to chalk this up to an old “bait and switch” move car dealerships do, this game is nothing like they advertise. I made it “322 days” and haven’t made any progress for “112 days”. Again don’t waste your time. I will be deleting this game after this review.
Nothing like the ads
by Mar is aweisme on 2019/02/28 00:58
I was just scrolling through my phone and I kept on seeing this game and I finally decided to download it and I thought it was gonna be like the ads where u have lots of stuff going on and ur all around the place trying to find a way to get out. I was nothing like that. I was there for a while trying to find the part where the excitement happens and I sat there and nothing basically happened. Also I thought it was gonna be like if u get the word wrong u are just caught and u get no more chances but instead that app would wait there Until you got the word right. I thought this was gonna be a challenge and I like challenges and I rly didn’t get challenged. I wish that they would actually show what it’s like in the ads. I do not recommend
Read this review before downloading
by Astral-kun on 2019/02/22 04:24
When I saw the adds to this game, it looked super fun! I definitely wanted to try this game out. At the beginning it tells the person playing you were accused of killing your wife. I thought this was gonna be an entertaining game when I saw the first bit + the adds. So I played a couple levels, “I’ll probably get to the fun part in a moment!” I thought. I played more and more and I STILL didn’t get past digging through the wall. I am surprised there were so many good ratings for this game. I DO NOT recommend it to any players. Another thing is it is just random words your guessing, unlike the adds which you had to pick words to help you escape. You have no clues and your just guessing words randomly! This game is terrible and I wish they would fix it. I really had high hopes for this app 😕.
Not as advertised.
by BaBaBlackJones on 2019/01/30 21:52
Made it to Chapter 11 and it’s nothing like the advertisement that shows you setting prisoners free, escaping in a suit case, etc. There is not much in regards to a story. I get that it’s a word game, but once you progress to a certain point you don’t get nearly as much story progression as you did in the beginning and even then it’s the same 6 scenes repeated with different “levels of progression” which by the way doesn’t seem to mean much. If you like word games, you may enjoy it, if you’re looking for something different in the word game genre this does absolutely nothing innovative. I give it 1 star because of the deceptive advertising which actually led me to download it, the lack of actual meaningful story progression, bad pacing, and the game does nothing new or different to keep me coming back for more.
Needs Work
by Vinoeo on 2019/03/09 13:44
In this game the point is to supposed to be escaping prison, and that’s what the game is mainly about. In the ads of the game it shows the player typing a word, and the player doing exactly as the player types. Although, in the game the app is way different than the ads. In the game the words mostly have very little to do with what the player typed, and the player keeps trying to escape prison but never gets out. The game basically just does everything to keep you stalling and not escaping. The app can work on making their ads match up to the game by changing the ad. Also, the game could match up to the ad by making the games words more relevant to what he is doing and not be endless. If the developer sees this please take it as advice.
No.
by AMajesticSheep on 2019/03/01 08:33
The ads for this are extremely false because I’m on day 258 and nothing has happened for at least 100 levels. There are multiple ads to go through, which is normal, but ads are the things that make the game worse. Sure it may be fun, but making an ad this misleading is just not right. If you have an ad with this much animation, why not incorporate it into the game? Just make it like the ad. Nothing happens at all in half the chapters except the same animations over and over again, picking up rocks, dripping rocks, moving a rock, adding support to the large tunnel, etc. But it adds absolutely nothing to the storyline. So the only way you guys can fix it is change the ads to stop misleading people or actually spend time on the game instead of making your ads more interesting than it.
Fun at first but then mehhh
by Gaigsibz on 2019/08/10 17:12
I downloaded this when I saw the ad in another game (something I rarely ever do). I loved it at first because there was a story, cool cut scenes, goals, etc but as you play along, all of that fun stuff disappears. I get that the point of game is that the character is stuck in jail but it gets very boring. I’m on day 350 and it’s the exact same game it was 100 days ago. It doesn’t get more exciting or interesting. He never gets out of jail. So the few cut scenes you do get as the game progresses are repetitive and lead nowhere. It would be so much better if he actually got out of jail and then was on the run. Each word would help him continue hiding out or getting a lawyer or something. The game is just super repetitive and boring after awhile.
Do not play.
by :) pretty on 2019/06/05 08:47
Do. Not. Play. This. Game. I can’t stress it enough how infuriating this game was. But yet, I played it, enough levels to give it two stars. Although this game is bland, it was addicting... I guess once you play you really want to know the next mystery word so you keep playing and playing and then boom! You realize this game is trash because the cutscenes/storyline makes no sense. The little stickman can’t even speak proper English... one of the lines he says and I quote “You’re so good at this puzzle, I will make more difficult” Huh? Also once you escape prison (Yes I made it that far) Nothing new happens except getting a new background... So yeah, spoiler, if it counts as one. Let me save you the trouble of downloading it because it is not worth it. DO NOT PLAY THIS BORING GAME.
So Many Unfortunate Things
by Hcvmxgmcgm on 2019/01/26 22:40
This game made me sick. How you ask? Well first, you have the false advertising, like pretty much all real reviews say. This game is completely different, and it’s way too repetitive. There are also ads overwhelming you, preventing you from having a good experience and actually trying to play (even though there’s not much of a point playing anyway). But you know what’s the most sad thing about this game? The fake reviews. This game has so many fake, paid people writing a “five star” rating. There are so many fake reviews that it’s gone to 5 star. I’ve seen a few reviews saying about false advertising, but the developers just say that they’re developing the game, which is a really bad reason. I really hope that this game changes in the future, it’s really not great.

They scammed me!
by Naomi...Cole on 2020/08/09 06:43
I paid 12.99 (which was the cheapest) and it didn’t add my coins or bombs!! I emailed them telling them what just happened and I’m waiting for a response. I can’t even believe it. It said the purchase was successful so I don’t know what happened but that’s crazy.
Yawn...
by whiskeytangoboy on 2020/08/05 02:33
It is okay. Nothing special. Developers need to learn to spell and maybe buy a dictionary. Solutions are sometimes proper names, but proper names are not acceptable when input by user. Also, ads freeze up on screen and then, well... it is game over.
Bad adds
by Thewheelsssss on 2020/07/27 20:07
This site pushes their political views with advertisements
I’ve been playing a bit today but........
by Renfrolo on 2020/07/19 11:57
When the game of spelling in a prison break doesn’t recognize the word thief, you lose my interest. There were a half dozen more it didn’t recognize. But seriously, a spelling game based in prison doesn’t know the word thief. It made me laugh after the other words it didn’t know. I even went to google to figure out how I was spelling thief wrong. Is it thief, theif, theife, theef, thiegh, thieph or thefe. It turned out my original thief was correct. Do you see the issue here. A spelling game that can’t spell basic 4th grade words.
7/17/20 Update: Political Ads Gone
by beadingamy on 2020/07/19 04:28
Update: No more political ads! Thank you!!! Loved this game & played every day until they started running political ads. Initially you could just close the ad but now it plays a video in between each word game.
The ads are not a problem! They need a dictionary!
by Radioactive woman on 2020/06/14 16:35
I’ve put words like slap and gesture and the game doesn’t accept it as a word! Sure it’s fun but only when it’s a fair game!
3,2,1 back to game!
by rhffhusducer on 2020/06/10 05:59
The game is, I have to say perfect 👌! I do get some ads but they are shorter than I expected!
When does it end???
by Gregory Bryans on 2020/05/30 01:22
The game was interesting at first. There was an actual objective; break someone out of prison. After breaking him out there were various word puzzles. There were 3 letter to 7 letter puzzles. Some levels have riddles. It caught my attention until... I’m on level 2511. Yes 2511. For the past few hundred levels the puzzles are 6 letter words. It’s so boring now. No variation. Just 6 letter words. No story anymore because he’s free from prison. No variation. Just 6 letter words. About to uninstall.
Maybe
by bonnie @ copperdog on 2020/05/25 18:13
I'm going to make this short: I want more action with the guy rather than words. If you could just do a little bit more with the guy, maybe even save coins to get stuff like clothes and different color sheets and pillows. Maybe also having the choice to be a male or female
The ads are fake
by ThatAddHater on 2020/05/24 03:37
Like many games coming out today of someone who gets to control the in game player’s actions and surroundings by choosing the right option or solving the puzzle, this is not the case, this game is full of highly repetitive levels, bad user quality, and rigged pricing systems, I played this game for over a year in hopes of getting to a new section, there is even clickbait material in the actual game, let me save you some time, don’t download this game, I would give 0 stars, don’t let the 4.8 fool you.
Word story
by Glocus60 on 2020/05/19 02:28
I‘be been playing this game for a few months but now all of a sudden after you complete the answers to the clues you don’t receive your coins... 30 coins is not working nor is the 2 spins for coins or boost working. I’ve been telling you in the like or dislike this level for 5 days but it works for a couple of puzzles then stops. I’m really thinking about uninstalling this game if you can not fix the problem. Suggestion you need to put some more action in the game it’s just unscramble the words.
Please read
by unicorn1342156 on 2020/05/17 00:00
I have had this game for a while. I have gotten to day 159, so very far. A. Yes the game is nothing like the ads. You just spell out words. That’s it. B. Sometimes you get an item that helps you escape, but it fails. It is really a boring game. Please do not play
Boring
by Tia211 on 2020/05/15 06:57
You just figure out the word , and you look at the same thing constantly had it for less than 5 minutes until I deleted it, I’m just going to stick to Subway Surfer 😊
No that bad but....
by MrRainBowGamer123 on 2020/05/15 01:11
It is a okay game but everything the ads looks like are false also it gets to a point where It can be unplayable because there are so many ads in the game. Overall 5/10 but could be a lot better.
Helped me figure out life.
by Ponyyloverr54321 on 2020/05/05 01:05
This is such a good app and anyone who gives it one star is a hater. I was actually stuck in prison once and I whipped my phone out of the little place between the cement where I could keep it without the guards knowing, and I played it for about 87 hours. Then, I realized if I could break this little man out of jail, so could I! And I did. Your welcome.
Boring

This lowbrow game is boring af.
OMG I LOVE THIS
by layla.m.m on 2020/04/29 14:50
I love this game. This game is educational and there are barely any ads. I was playing this game for 25 minutes straight not one ad. This is just an amazing game. 🥰 I just love it.
Daily Game
by Trulypar on 2020/04/24 13:56
Update #3: once again the daily puzzle isn’t working. I waited to post this update hoping the most recent game update would fix the bug, but not luck... please fix this again. UPDATE #2: they finally fixed the daily game!!! Awesome!!! I’m so happy. This is one of the games I love to play each night and the daily game is where I earn my coins. UPDATE: it has been quite awhile since I posted this review about the daily game not working and the game creators have neither acknowledged my post nor fixed the problem. This is very frustrating since that is where I get my coins to play the regular levels. It isn’t working. The daily puzzle is blank and doesn’t load.
Too hard

Negative stars
by Big birds twin on 2020/04/12 04:05
I wish I could block every single game like this one. It makes you watch a 30 second ad every time you complete a word. Then there are other ads to watch at different intervals. Is there an ad free version one may ask? Not as far as I can tell. This game will be deleted forthwith!

So-so
by Flugualbinder on 2020/04/07 01:09
The game is okay. Not at all what I thought it was going to be- boring and disappointing compared to what i imagined. Plus it uses the same words repeatedly, which gets old real quick. There’s no option to buy a no-ads setting, which also gets quite annoying. It also tend to get glitchy after a bit of playtime. Some of the illustrations are funny, which kept my attention a bit more. And the curiosity about what was going to happen also kept me going. But it was a long, repetitive game, with an anticlimactic end.
Why with the ads
by pukeing kitty on 2020/04/02 15:50
What’s with all the ads😤😤😤😤
What happened?
by pechede on 2020/04/01 04:40
I’ve been playing this game a very long time . There was a 3000 level challenge with a Joker icon. Where did it go? Was it a cruel lure? What happened?!?
Misleading adds
by weirdo reivewing a game on 2020/03/23 16:08
I saw the add for this game and thought it would be pretty fun. The first animation I saw was him getting arrested, so I thought it would get to the fun puzzles pretty soon. He said that there would be word puzzles every day. In the adds you make the right type of words to get through prison, yet in the actual game you don’t. You only make one word each day and the only animation is him digging a stupid hole and dumping out rocks.

Used to be better
by Al54913 on 2020/03/04 18:36
The game itself is enjoyable enough but they made a disappointing change. You used to be able to get coins by finding enough bonus words to fill the golden piggy bank. They still have that mechanic but now you have to pay $4.99 to get the coins. You also used to get coins whenever you solved a puzzle. Now the only way to get coins is by watching ads or by paying the aforementioned $4.99. If it wasn’t for this I would give the game a higher rating.
Boring game, too many ads
by Bewitchedtattoos on 2020/03/02 04:48
I don’t know what I expected but this game is very dull and slow moving and there are far too many ads for other games.

Major Bug. No more Money
by Ludo234 on 2020/02/19 16:38
I have made it to the 1700s. All at once the game stopped giving me rewards. I would solve the puzzle and the option to get 30 coins is grayed out. This game is above frustrating. But for some weird reason I stuck wit it. But I doubt I’ll be able to finish if the reward for having to watch stupid ads no longer no longer supports advancing in the game Fix this!
Game looks more interesting than it is
by Pyjamazen on 2020/02/12 18:35
This is a super-simple word unscramble puzzle disguised as a word puzzle prison escape. If you want a challenging word find/unscramble game there are number of far, far better ones out there. This is a super simple version of those games with a totally unrelated, poorly rendered, highly ungrammatical prison escape story laid overtop of it. It also pushes hints on you whether you want them or not, so it’s not like you can even enjoy the elementary school level of the puzzles without letters shaking at you telling you which ones to pick. It’s pretty terrible on all possible fronts.
This game ain’t great
by XxMeme_Lord_xX on 2020/02/12 03:41
Don’t believe any of the ads and or that this game has any actual kind of story, it is literally just word puzzle x27 and then oooo a boring different cutscene happened, and then back to regular.
This is a bad game
by (yhi on 2020/02/09 01:23
It fun at the beginning but so rounds don’t count your work too BORING BORING BORING DONT PLAY IT AWFUL
Fun, but tourney needs work.
by IceDragonBenz on 2020/02/08 16:29
It is a fun game of guessing words. But the tourney in it is rather one-sided. After guessing most of the phrase your opponent has a higher chance of winning than you do. It doesn’t matter if you guess most the letters and have a higher score, just who “solves” the puzzle.
Bad story and quality, good word game though
by I'd prefer to not give a name on 2020/01/16 00:38
The game itself is horrible. Terrible grammar. “I want be free”? SPAMS ads, SPAMS notifications, and the headphones do nothing! All the “improvements” are LIES! You escape onto a generic beach ON LEVEL 200 REGARDLESS OF INCHES CHIPPED! The puzzles are okay though. I mean seriously just buy Words With Friends or Wordscapes or LITERALLY ANY OTHER GAME!! I mean the gameplay is good but it wasn’t made well. 3/10. Now if you excuse me I need to uninstall this trash and replace it with KleptoCats.

by kkkkkkccccccclllllll on 2020/01/02 15:42
This game is fun. My only suggestion would be to give people clues when trying to figure out the words. There’s 3 slots with like 6 letters to choose from. The problem is you can create multiple words out of the given letters. Another issue is some of the words aren’t consistent with the guys situation. For example one word was FOX. Fox has nothing to do with him going away for murdering his wife lol. I’m glad I found this game because the ads looked very appealing but it needs some tweaking.

Trump ads should go
by Jaws0126 on 2019/12/21 23:59
I like the game even though it is repetitive, but like text twist in scrambling letters to build words. However, especially lately, too many ads promotingTrump. I would not recommend because of this alone. Keep politics out of fun. Instead, the ability’s to pay a modest fee with no ads would make it more enjoyable
Change the cutscene
by Iampolarpenguin on 2019/12/21 21:03
I’ve been digging the same hole for 92 levels. The hole is more than 60 feet deep, how thick is this wall? A bit of a let down but still playable.
Terrible Game
by oldmanbigcock on 2019/12/20 04:36
Obviously bought reviews and inflated the score. The game is like an anagram game for first graders. The “story” makes no sense and the words in the game have nothing to do with the story. This is just a lazy effort to get ad traffic. Don’t waste your time on this.
OK Concept - Sketchy Devs
by TheBlackRonPaul on 2019/12/20 04:07
Game is entirely built around draining your wallet. Devs don’t even try to hide it. It’s a cash grab, and I recommend finding a different word game app for this and other reasons. The dictionary it uses will also not recognize proper nouns, unless it is an arbitrarily chosen proper noun for the level (such as a country name), as well as arbitrarily allowing certain standard English words because I guess they’re vulgar? But somehow proper medical vocabulary is vulgar, but not several other slang and hateful terms, some of which would generally be considered highly offensive and are without any other meanings. So in short, the dictionary is not only incomplete, it is completely arbitrary rather than using a standard boggle or scrabble word list. Shame on these devs and others like them that can’t make a game that is sold on its merits and has to resort to micro transaction currencies for revenue. Its no secret that this model only makes money because it targets a small percentage of players with addictions, so continuing to use this model in light of this well-known information is not just a cop-out, or bad for the game market, but actually evil.

Please fix the daily puzzle day 122.
Past 2 updates destroyed this game.
by mikereedny on 2019/12/11 00:26
I played this game almost daily since Apr 2019. I made the mistake to update it twice recently, and the game is now as enjoyable as an enema. The daily puzzle no longer works and the game now wants serious cash for coins for bonus words. There is no real need for the coins to begin with. App now deleted.
Bug in latest version was fixed quickly!
by BJ Reed on 2019/12/10 21:51
The daily puzzle wasn’t working right. But the creator quickly fixed it. Awesome! I like the different aspects to this game. The challenges are all different from each other, making it fun to play!

Too many bugs
by Spine apple on 2019/12/09 20:57
I had this game and reached level 300 with over 3500 coins. One day the app froze up on the daily puzzle. I emailed the company but no one ever responded. I had to uninstall and reinstall the game on my phone losing all my coins and progress. That was 3 months ago. 3 days ago there was an update to the game which I installed and again the daily puzzle froze up not allowing me to do anything. I have emailed the company 3 times but the refuse to respond. If I uninstall this time I will not reinstall.
Not working

Ridiculous
by PistolStar13 on 2019/12/08 17:14
This is so stupid. I thought that I will be following clues from the story to guess words to help him escape. But it's just another word guessing game. There is no depth or meaning to anything you do.

Too many ads and must have been developed by someone with very little knowledge of the English language, which is exactly what you don’t want in a word game.
App rarely works
by Paulie858 on 2019/12/04 14:56
This game is nothing even close to what was advertised. There are very few scenes at all and even fewer that are anything other than a picture of a rock. And to top it off, it seems like every time they update the app something about the app stops working. For instance, the app was updated a little over a month ago and their Daily Puzzle hasn’t worked since then. Now, I like word puzzles and this game has no shortage of them. That’s why I gave it 2 stars. But it really deserves less. Come on, guys. Get your act together. Fix your app. Make it what you said it would be. Make what you have into something that works.
It’s ok
by B0BbYB on 2019/12/02 23:34
I love the single story mode. I never saw the ads everyone was talking about. However, the tournaments are bogus. When I get 5 wins, the other user can solve the puzzle in two turns. Wheel of fortune pros couldn’t even solve these puzzles with the few letters showing on the board. Makes me think it’s a bot.

Game doesn’t work
by SCAxeman on 2019/11/16 19:32
The game seems based on a generic framework that just doesn’t work on Apple phones. You can find words from a selection of letters, and that’s about it. Virtually every other aspect of the game, and the story is broken. None of the other buttons work. Most of the ‘progress’ is aimed at getting you to buy ‘hints’ that you don’t need, with real world money. Skip this one, it’s a poorly put together cash harvester.
Daily challenges m
by Ms.Ladii on 2019/11/15 20:47
I have been playing faithfully since I downloaded it. I actually find the game fun because I’m a nerd 🤓at heart 🙃 I even play both the puzzle on the side and the daily puzzles My problem is after so many daily puzzles (I’m on “Day 2187” and it’s linked to my FB account), they have stopped showing puzzles on the daily and every time I even try to open the daily puzzle it does not allow me to back out to the menu of the game. I literally have to close the app fully (including “swiping it away” on my phone and reopen it just to play the regular levels. Hope this can be fixed an you add more daily puzzles 🧩 . Thanks
FALSE ADVERTISING! Repetitive ads and pointless scenes - ANNOYING!
by His♡Hachiko™ on 2019/11/15 19:26
I downloaded this game under the assumption the gameplay was solving word puzzles for usable in game items to help break out an innocent inmate with a clever storyline attached, but the actual game is absolutely BORING & nothing like it was advertised! You solve simple word puzzles, but only 1 in 10 puzzles actually produce an in game item. The rest of the time it's pointless word solutions that produce 30 second video ad pop ups followed by the same repetitive scene of the inmate dumping out rocks or a screen stating how many inches were dug, which in itself has no bearing on the gameplay and is a pointless waste of time! This game had such potential to be fun, but the ridiculous amount of ads, pathetic reuse of the same scene over and over, pointless unincorporated dig measurements, and the lack of any cohesive storyline made me delete after 30 levels. I cannot say this enough - I DO NOT RECOMMEND WASTING YOUR TIME ON THIS GAME!
Misleading and monotonous.
by RabidRat69 on 2019/11/04 21:38
Like many others have stated, “The ads are misleading”. There is no figuring out how to escape or wrong/right choices to make. Just over and over making a key word out of a jumble of letters. It gets monotonous. At level 832, I think I’ve given it a more than fair trial period. In the trash it goes.
Was great until recent update
by Ti1948gr17is on 2019/10/29 19:42
Until recent update I loved this game. Now the goal is just about the money. I don’t mind the ads. But functioning to push you into paid hints is a bit dirty. Sadly, leaving soon.
Great game but........... please read
by 👱‍♂️👱‍♂️👱‍♂️ on 2019/10/27 19:48
This is a great game when I say this game in a ad this game looked really fun, but when I played a few levels I realized that it was way different in the ad! It was still decent but in the ad it looked a lot more fun! I have seen ads like this in other games though. Why do you lie in your ads? If you were to add what you put in the ad I would give this game five stars. The reason I gave this game three stars is because two of the stars are worth the game by itself. The other star is worth the little amount of ads! This game is alright to try!
Amazing and real
by Veveek4808 on 2019/10/27 17:00
So this game y’all complaining about is apparently not the game for you But who cares about being a girl it’s a guy get over it I love that it’s challenging as the lvls go up. And the ad’s help fyi if you want to spend money on it ok but your not actually playing the game. If your smart you won’t need to buy coins; earn them and don’t complain, but I love this game and I am very happy my friend showed me.
Don’t play the 💩 game
by sguerrera on 2019/10/26 22:15
I regretfully played and I’m at level 14 where the developer is not even trying anymore... he just threw unlimited levels so u can’t pass level 14 cause he doesn’t have any more levels... great job!! It’s always the same thing... same animations which don’t even make sense... skip this game and go d/l another game... that is going to be 💯 better than this one!! TRUST ME!!
If you want a story look somewhere else
by Y205king on 2019/10/19 11:36
This game is incredibly misleading, it advertises as a story when in reality the only real progress I’ve seen came after more than 70 of the dull and boring puzzles. Wouldn’t recommend to my worst enemy so please save yourself from doing 50 of these terrible puzzle which repeat constantly.
Lost all progress
by JCooke51 on 2019/10/18 00:44
I was almost at day 1100. Suddenly the daily puzzle stopped working and would freeze the whole game. I eventually uninstalled and reinstalled the game hoping that would fix the issue. Instead, I’ve lost all my progress, and don’t see a cloud save of my old progress. I don’t have it in me to try to get that far again.
why would you do this to me:(7777777

Idea good execution bad
by 1y1y2y on 2019/10/06 14:06
I like the idea of this game and it is fun to play. I don’t see the point of the prison break theme which seems to go nowhere and what really annoys me is that is keeps telling me words don’t exist when they do. For example violet and basil came up as not being words. Someone needs to do a dictionary review!
Terrible
by jullinaannaiess on 2019/10/05 18:16
This the worst game ever there is a fake advertisement and very boring I can tell you from being a player of the game !!!!!!
False advertisement
by GuitarKevin on 2019/10/04 17:08
I discovered this app through another in-game advertisement. The add showed a prisoner trying to escape and what looked like a user interactively guessing words to navigate him out of the cell or other rooms by putting him in a case or flirting with the guard. None of that happens. All you do is guess words over and over and every once in a while there is a little video that shows the prisoner digging his way out. I’m on level/day 550 and nothing has changed. The words can be challenging, and for that I’ll give it 2 stars. Otherwise it a boring, non satisfying game.
Misleading
by JT00Fly23 on 2019/10/03 03:21

by Daniel3701 on 2019/10/02 01:28
this game is trash. it’s nothing like the ads and it’s literally the same thing over and over.
THIS IS A REAL AND HONEST REVIEW!
by A Real_Player on 2019/03/25 02:15
As a real player of this game, I can say that this game is not that good . If you are planning to downloading this, because of the ads, than I can tell that the ads are false. You will never have a level where you try look like a girl, and theirs no level where you have to look strong/ serious, so don’t play this game because the ads. The core game mechanics are as you would’ve expected, and some words/ levels give you a cutscene, however, The cutscenes sometimes don’t make sense with the correct word, even then the cutscenes are lazy. This game is FULL of ads (tho that’s with mobile game, so I won’t talk about it that much, that’s just something to keep in mind.) If you are getting bored of regular mode, you can play “challenge levels” which Is the EXACT SAME THING as regular mode, with probably harder words. (I haven’t played that much of it but still.) Does this game deserve almost 5 stars? NO. This game is really only fun if your bored, and even then you WILL get bored of the game after a couple of weeks. ( I hope this helps someone.)
Fun but disappointing
by Sm504 on 2019/03/16 22:59
You know how all the ads show they guy trying to be a girl, well. It doesn’t show that in the game all you do is type letters to get a word and it just shows you the same thing over, and over, and over, and over again! The game is really boring but fun! The background music is weird, it is kinda annoying! But the person just does the same thing! It doesn’t do what the add shows where you match the word to the picture and try to escape prison like that. NO! It just tells you to type letters to make a word! This game is just like word scapes and all the other games that tell you to match letters! But at first when I saw the ad I was like “I want to match things up with the picture and try to escape!” Then when I went into the game and started play I was like “ THIS IS NOTHING LIKE THE AD!!!!!” Even though the game is disappointing it is still educational. It tells you to spell words and they make it hard, which is good! But I am still disappointed in how the ad was and how when you play the game they are nothing like each other! I would give this app 2 stars. I like the hello stars game better then this!! I am going to express my anger now! “ THIS GAME SHOULD NOT HAVE 4.8 STARS! IT SHOULD HAVE 2 STARS!!” I am so sorry about that. But I am just very mad and disappointed 😓😢😭😒😞☹️🙁😕😟😔😣😖😫😩🥺😢😭😤😠😡🤬🥵😥😓😰🤕🤒😿🙀😾👎🏽👎🏽 Well, that is what I think about the game. I AM REALLY SAD THAT IT IS NOT LIKE THE AD SHOWS!!!
Decent but misleading
by Alice Adderly on 2019/02/21 23:28
I’m sure most of you people are here are here because of the ads for this game that looked interesting where there are stickmen trying to escape little cutscenes and when you reach a situation you have to type in the tool you might need to continue along with various animations making it seem like a very interesting and funny game to play. HOWEVER the ads literally are NOTHING like the game the only thing that’s the same is the fact that your in a prison, spelling words, and the assets. I thought the game would be interesting so I downloaded it, I am now on day 250 Nothing has changed its just a spelling words and digging in a hole (that’s probably made of titanium metal) Endlessly (basically) the ads are misleading and the best part about the ads were the animations but the only animations you will get here is: the guy making progress on his stupid hole, Him dumping out rocks from a bag, getting a new item and some other crappy 3 dollar animations sure in you defense you might say the game is good and the ads are just a little misleading but the ads are what make the game BAD not to mention while playing the game you will encounter multiple ads and remember how the internet works kids: Misleading Ads+game+advertisements in the game=money So the point is that they need to either A: make their game like the ads, or B: Remove the old ads and add ads that actually are the GAME.
Annoying, a little boring, playable.
by Moonjinx on 2019/06/02 03:05
I did not see the ads for this game. That being said, this game is annoying. I played through 3....levels maybe? A good hour or so. I don’t really see the point in playing this. There are spelling errors all over the game, that has me wary that some of the words I’m trying to guess are even real words. I didn’t run into any misspellings I had to try and guess, but none of the words were very challenging. Disappointing for a game that had a lot of promise. You unlock items that give you bonuses that I don’t really understand, I got soap that increased my relaxation I think, but what does that actually do? I didn’t notice anything. I had an opportunity to increase its potency, but I didn’t see the point. The only upgrade that made sense to me that I totally clicked on the ads to watch was the spoon upgrade that increased the rate that I dug. Still, I played a good 20 minutes after that, and while my progress increased dramatically, I didn’t really see how it was helping me. I did like the fact that I got to choose if I wanted to watch ads, that’s why I give it the 3 star rating. The guys cartoon faces were the most annoying thing to me, but that might be a personal taste.
Amazing
by Liz uno on 2018/11/25 07:41
I downloaded this game today and never had so much fun I know everyone opinion is different but with my disability’s I have trouble focusing and learning certain things. For some reason I am focusing and actually giving myself a challenge trying to figure out the words even though you can have multiple words(if not right one they give you coins as long as it’s a word) if you can’t figure it out you get items to help out I haven’t used one yet plus if you make a word that isn’t anywhere where they are looking for they will start to subtract some letters to me this Game is challenging to me may not be to some people but at least I can give myself a challenge thank you.
very disappointed
by .lyd. on 2019/03/01 00:20
i’m assuming most of you have downloaded this game because you saw ads for it everywhere and it looked fun! right away i was disappointed as soon as i searched it in the app store. the word “persevere” in one of the pictures is spelled, “persever”. right away, i lowered my standards. i opened the app and thought it was alright. i spelled a few words, and the guy dug a whole into a wall, then we would go outside to dump out the rocks. it’s a VERY BORING app!! that’s all he did. not to mention that no one who spoke english well reviewed the app before it was published. half the stuff it says in the app doesn’t make any sense. also, there is no music!! i like playing my games with background music or at least some sound effect but nope :( overall, this app is poorly made, and does not deserve to have 4.8 stars. i have no idea how it has that many. don’t get this app unless you enjoy spelling random words that have nothing to do with what you’re trying to accomplish in the game. for example, it’s not even like “he’s hungry, what should he eat?” it just gives you random letters and makes you spell words with no hints or clues whatsoever about what you’re trying to spell. i’ve never been more disappointed in an app before. thank you for your time, and i do not recommend “wordstory”.
Fun but glitchy
by AgentofLaw on 2019/01/13 10:40
I really enjoy word games so I thought I’d give this a try. I like the story and the objects the character can use that gets added throughout the game via level solutions. I feel they could add a lot more to the story though. Especially the cut scene animations. They tend to repeat too much, so it feels like there isn’t much progress happening. My biggest problem though is with the glitches. The daily challenge hasn’t been working correctly. The first problem was it wanted the word “Monaco” (I even used coins to make sure that was the word) and I kept telling me it wasn’t a legal word. Today’s daily challenge isn’t letting me select letters to put in the empty boxes. If you want people to spend money on a game like this you got to address these issues quickly. And it wouldn’t hurt to expand the story and add more diverse cut scenes to show the character advancing. After all, it is what separates this word game from many others. I would give this a higher rating if it wasn’t for the glitches in the daily challenges.
Nothing like I imagined
by Unicorn girl5665 on 2019/06/16 20:50
At first I saw the ad and thought it was going to be fun because it showed that the guy was dressing up like a girl and all that other funny stuff so he could escape. But once I got the app and started playing I realized he was just doing the same thing over again. Yeah I get it's also supposed to be educational but the words are way to easy and I'm pretty sure that some of the words are misspelled. I always see the reviews first and saw that a lot of them were very negative but I saw that it had a 4.8 so I still got the app not even thinking about the negative reviews I saw. But now I think I should have considered the negative reviews because I wasted about an hour on this game and it wasn't even fun like the ads. I'm very disappointed because I expected this game to be fun and educational but it's not. It's really boring and not very challenging. The words in the app are first grade words and I'm in the seventh grade. There should at least be an easy, medium, and hard level so that we could challenge ourselves. But from what I've seen there's not. So I'm giving this app not two but one star because I feel like this game isn't all that great like it shows in the ads.
How does this game have such a high rating???
by Reedear on 2019/01/16 06:36
So, I was intrigued by the ad for the game, probably like most of you. I see in the ad different scenarios to escape from different areas and the words you figure out are supposed to help the guy try to escape and you get to see a funny little animation of if it goes right or if it goes wrong. That was interesting and worth playing. I download the game and I’m figuring out words that have nothing to do with anything. There’s no clue to a word, so you’re figuring it out from the air. For many levels, the guy is still digging out a hole in the wall. And his “progress” is very slow. I’ve read other reviews that say he’ll still be digging for many, many levels. So, when do we get to actually helping him escape or see the funny animations? I get that that might take some time to get to, but don’t show me an ad where you’re showing the last bit of progress when it’s going to take me 50+ levels to actually get me there. Show me the slow gameplay, so I actually know what I’m getting into. I can see the fun in the game, but watching ads and making little progress over time just isn’t for me.
What?!?
by Lovesguineapigs! on 2019/04/15 04:18
I have to imagine at least a large portion of these good reviews are somehow manipulated/fake, or maybe they removed negative reviews to alter the overall rating, because this is truly an awful game. For starters, this game has absolutely nothing to do with the ads. But even then it makes no sense. There is little objective to the words you end up making. You’ll end up putting words like cat and fox and you’ll pass the level, but those words have nothing to do with a prison break and they are not shown to have anything to do with the game’s objective. Also, many of the bonus words u can spell are literally not actual words, at least not in English. Words like “sed” and “hors” are validated in the game. I even googled them because for a second I thought maybe i was just dumb and didn’t know the words, but they do not exist. And there are a LOT of “words” like this in the game. There’s nothing wrong with not being fluent in English and developing an app, however it’s probably fair to say you should make an word game app in English if that’s the case. Anyway, perhaps the game will improve but as of now, it’s a waste of anyone’s time.
It’s Ok
by Angel in Thrall on 2019/05/21 05:49
I’ve been playing this game for awhile now. It does progress, albeit slowly. My problem is that the game is currently frozen. I solved a puzzle fairly far into the game, and it’s just frozen now. I can’t close the game, or get it to do anything. I tried the “App Support” link, but that only takes me to “Terms of Service”. There is no support for in-game errors or glitches. I didn’t see any of the ads that others have said as the main reason they downloaded the game, so I didn’t really have any expectations for how it should appear, etc. It does tend toward repetitiveness in appearance, but it does progress if you stay with it long enough. But it’s beyond frustrating to have it frozen up on me now. I’d like to keep playing, but if it makes me start all over once it decides to un-freeze itself, I’ll be dumping it. I have tried the “App Support” repeatedly, thinking I may have hit the wrong thing, but nope. It only takes me to “Terms of Service”.
Very disappointed
by CheezitVlogz on 2019/03/17 13:35
Most people download this app because of all the cool looking and fun ads. The ads feature multiple scenes where you need to spell one word with the given letters, and if you spell the word wrong, you fail. NONE of that happens in the real game. The ads are NOTHING like what the game has to offer. I got so bored of it I uninstalled the app at day 28 because it was such a waste of time and nothing interesting happened. What actually happens in the app is the guy does try to escape prison but all he does it dig a little hole and occasionally go outside to dump the rocks out. My question is, IF HES DIGGING A HOLE TO ESCAPE, HOW THE HECK DOES HE GO OUTSIDE?!?? do the cops just let him out? It makes no sense. Also, the game is sooooo boring. Instead of being given all the letters to try and figure out the word, your given a bunch of random letters scrambled all together which is nothing like the ad had displayed. Please make the game like the ads to make it interesting. I have no clue how this app has 4.8 stars. The creator probably made a bunch of bot accounts and rated the game 5 stars. I recommend deleting this app because it will waste your time.
OK Concept - Sketchy Devs
by TheBlackRonPaul on 2019/12/20 04:07
Game is entirely built around draining your wallet. Devs don’t even try to hide it. It’s a cash grab, and I recommend finding a different word game app for this and other reasons. The dictionary it uses will also not recognize proper nouns, unless it is an arbitrarily chosen proper noun for the level (such as a country name), as well as arbitrarily allowing certain standard English words because I guess they’re vulgar? But somehow proper medical vocabulary is vulgar, but not several other slang and hateful terms, some of which would generally be considered highly offensive and are without any other meanings. So in short, the dictionary is not only incomplete, it is completely arbitrary rather than using a standard boggle or scrabble word list. Shame on these devs and others like them that can’t make a game that is sold on its merits and has to resort to micro transaction currencies for revenue. Its no secret that this model only makes money because it targets a small percentage of players with addictions, so continuing to use this model in light of this well-known information is not just a cop-out, or bad for the game market, but actually evil.
Not worth playing through (Version 1.5.3)
by HughJorgan10 on 2019/02/26 23:19
This game starts off decent as you progress through the Chapters. You unlock upgrades and earn coins just by completing each level. The upgrades are purely cosmetic because it doesn't matter how fast you dig; you still have to complete each chapter just to see the next part of storyline. The shop is a joke with nothing to spend the coins on. They are only useful for blowing up letters and giving hints. Only play Chapters 1-10 because after that Chapters 11-13 are a total waste of time. THIS GAME IS SO GOOD that it will let you play through 1478 more levels that add absolutely nothing to the storyline. I LOVE IT SO MUCH that I'm greeted with an "All Levels Cleared" button at the end of Level 2000. "See you in the next Chapter"... yeah right clowns, get a clue. Increasing the amount of levels in each chapter to extend playing time is the best example of artificial difficulty. The game tricks you into thinking there's an epilogue after the Main Story but there isn't. It's just the same still shots with speech bubbles scribbled on the screen. What an absolute letdown.
Pretty boring
by SuperHonestyTime on 2019/01/15 19:02
First off: The ads for this game are absolutely false. You aren’t trying to solve the word puzzle and if you get it wrong the guard catches you. You’re simply solving word puzzles. The entire game is basically every few words you solve a day goes by. Sometimes when you solve a word a simple screen play appears. Usually in the screenplay you’re either given a new tool, you’re dumping dirt outside, or your playing with this random bird. I did see a cop one time, which you bribe with a bottle of wine. But that was it, and it doesn’t seem to have been related to anything. And nothing really happens after that. The hole never changes size and there’s no way to win the game. You just keep solving words with no end in sight. This game is absolutely pointless and is just a way to waste time. So if that’s what you’re looking for I’d recommend it, but that’s not what I look for in a game. I really don’t know how it has so many positive reviews unless they are mostly fake. I doubt any of them are real. After 106 days I’ve dug 78 feet into my wall.... how thick are these walls?
Meh..
by Chime720 on 2019/01/30 01:49
It’s good, it’s fun, but the walls are like a kilometer or kilometre or something thick! When I thought I was almost done, I was only a few HUNDRED MILLIONS LEVELS AWAY FROM BREAKING OUT. Not literally, but STILL. I don’t mind the ads as much as other people, but they do get annoying. It’s actually getting pretty boring, as all you do is find words. Maybe add longer words as a challenge, or maybe make the wall a bit thinner. AND ADD MORE ANIMATION THINGS. PLEASE. It was fun, but not anymore. Please, look at at 5 star games about words and get some inspiration, or think of ideas because I CANNOT AFFORD TO LET THIS CUTE LITTLE GUY DIE ALONE IN JAIL BECAUSE I GOT BORED OF THIS... THING. Oh it was a game. When I saw an ad for this, I thought it looked cool. Now, I’m starting to take that back. I feel a bit of regret for getting this game, but otherwise, it’s kinda good. I kinda like the story. KIND OF. Wait, but if he’s innocent, why is he breaking the walls of jail? :/ ? I guess we’ll just have to WAIT and SEE IF HE EVER EVEN GETS OUT OF THIS... THING.
Terrible game
by 🤓🤓🤪🤪 on 2019/01/28 17:28
I have been playing this game for a long time and it just keeps repeating itself over and over again this is such a boring game and I see no point of it and it’s nothing like I see In the adds this is a crappy game and I do not recommend it. I have just looked at others reviews saying they same and they are ahead of me and saying that when your at day 126+ your still digging holes in the wall, throwing rocks on the ground. Also the words you find have absolutely nothing to do with the actions your guy finds it’s a pointless and endless game that waste your time and after all the terrible reviews they haven’t fixed anything!! I don’t recommend this game. The adds lie and show the you want they once you download it, it’s the worst thing ever. I understand that people make adds for the game to make you buy it but the ad shouldn’t be the complete opposite of the real thing. I would like if they made the game like the adds. I only downloaded this game because of the adds it seemed fun but now it’s just boring. Pls fix it.!
A disappointing glitchy mess of an game
by Berryhalo on 2019/04/09 13:34
Word Story is a boring game that is nothing like what they advertise. Where you do sneaky tricks like disguise yourself as a girl, fake pregnancy, dress up as a cop. All of the cool stuff not in the game trust me I forced myself through a lot of it to try and see. It treads a thin line over not being false advertisement. It’s so boring with the same animations over and over. The game is also super buggy for me it crashes if I beat a level or find a word that is not the word the game wants. And if it doesn’t crash if I find a word that is not the answer the letters will stay stuck on the answer boxes and you can’t see what is the world you are typing with out exiting the game again and reopening it. It was mostly a higher level bug and even though they claimed to have “fixed it” five days ago it has not been fixed. I am extremely disappointed at this game and I am tired of all the glitches so I’m uninstalling this game and not recommending it to anyone. Word Story does not deserve its 4.8 score more like a 1.8 score.
This is stupid
by Addicting Games Guy on 2019/02/22 23:27
Well this game is interesting. The only real good part of this game is that eventually it does become real challenging, and actually requires a brain or dumb luck to complete. The other parts are pretty bad. The scenes that happen in game are so bad that it’s hilarious, the way things literally fall from the sky. This game tries to get you to watch ads to get boosts that speed up digging time. This however does not matter as there is simply a level system, so the devs are straight up lying to you. Speaking of lying, the ads for this game are actually hilariously terrible. They follow the trend of “make it look stupid easy and say people fail it often so that people watch our ads to prove themselves.” This is scummy already, but they go further by using non existing scenarios in the ads, when only one terrible one exists that to my knowledge did not get an ad. Overall, this game is scummy and only got 2 stars because it does provide a challenge if you can stand this [heck] fest
Misleading
by rmarsmedic on 2019/03/04 19:34
This game is the worst. I get ads on it all the time and thought that it was interesting. Once I downloaded the game, it was nothing like the ads. There is literally no story line besides the character trying to dig a hole in a wall, and dumping rocks outside out of a weird little brown bag. The only “fun” part was trying to find the words, which by the way have no relevance to the game. They are just random words most of the time, unlike the ads that make it seem like whatever word you spell is what is going to help you escape prison. But this was such a waste a time, because I was playing the game for a long time waiting for something to happen and nothing did. If this game was something like the ads I saw online I would be way more interested, but again, it’s is not. Just don’t download this game, and don’t waste your time on it. I normally do not leave reviews but I felt that I needed to leave one on this app just because of how much it surprised me that something like this could be so misleading.
Please help!
by darleneplay76 on 2019/02/16 22:32
1st: This game is loosely based on the movie 'Shawshank Redemption'!! Just so the ones that don't know now know. 2nd: I gave this game 3 stars cause for some reason I've noticed that while I'm playing I'll lose feet of progress of my tunnel!! Whats going on? Is it me? Is it the game? Please help! If it's me please tell me what I'm doing wrong but if it's the game then please fix this. I just started playing the other day and I was 36 feet into the tunnel and I do a few word puzzles and then it says my progress is only 24 feet! So please what's going on? I don't understand at all. The ads are irratating but I can deal with that but losing my progress for no reason, that I can't deal with. Fix that and u will get 5 stars from me. Thanks and I hope to see a reply to this soon cause it's bothering me so bad I'm on the verge of deleting. Also I agree with some of the other players....it would be nice to have some more cut scenes. Maybe have him interact with other prisoners and I think the words u have to find should be more linked to the scenes. For example, show him outside playing ball with others and have the word puzzles be about the ballgame and so forth. Or him doing his prison job one day in the laundry and the puzzle words be connected to the laundry. Just to keep is a lil more entertained in the story a lil more.
CATFISHED
by the one who got catfished on 2019/03/30 18:17
I got this game bc of the ads (most of you guys did as well... I am on day 60 I am making progress... but all it shows is the guy digging a freaking wall hidden from a poster, and dumping out a bag of rocks!!! The app pictures shows “make new friends” all it does was the stick figure shaking hands with this guy... on the ads it shows this girl trying to become pregnant by putting a pillow in her shirt so she can escape... so you type the word pillow and she gets a pillow... NO THAT IS NOT HOW IT WORKS!!! You type words all the time and it does nothing... the only one that is like the ads was the first challenge of this guy pretending to be a nurse.. but he failed and it had the button “continue” but it never did the next challenge was the joker trying to kidnap kids, and it wants me to reach day 3000 and I asked Siri how long that will take and she said 8.08 years and I am not wasting my life on this game.... I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED!!! 🤮🤮🤮
Good time waster
by Takkycat on 2019/03/16 14:34
This is a good game if you need to eat up a few minutes of time. The story is not much and the ads are annoying, but, unlike a lot of games with in app purchases, it very playable without buying anything! There is no move/level limit to tempt you to buy currency to get past and the in game currency is fairly generous (especially in early levels). If you can resist getting hints than you end up with a lot of money for when the words get harder. Also, it does let you close out of the involuntary ads quickly. I'm not going to criticize an app for having ads or an in app purchases system. The creators need money to survive just like the rest of us, but this game actually has an overall very fair system or, at least, a LOT more fair than a lot of other app games.
Mystery Words Were A Waste of Time
by duhflyinasian on 2018/12/13 21:58
I’ve gotten as far as DAY 129 or something, and have yet to get my character to escape because I haven’t made anymore progress after realizing how repetitive this game can get. I’ve also realized before I got to DAY 100 that the mystery words would have nothing to do with the story majority of the time. Despite not having to pay for items that will help give you hints what the mystery word could be by watching the endless amounts of ads they have, it annoyed me more than anything that I felt like I was wasting my time when the mystery words were “could”, “would”, “they”, and so on. I agree with the others who’ve commented that this game had so much potential, and I wasn’t bothered by the fact that the ads helped me get free items to progress further in the game, but guessing the mystery words that had nothing to do with the story definitely got me to stop playing.
IT'S NOTHING LIKE THE ADS!
by Baltimore Walker on 2019/03/06 21:11
When I first saw this in an ad, it looked like a really fun game! It was like a more modern version of the original stick-figure jail break game; I liked the idea! I got the game, and I was completely disappointed by the story. I played this up to chapter 4, and literally NONE of the scenes, animations, characters, movements, story, dialogue, CHANGED! In other words, it's a complete ripoff. I also don't like how the game has no difficulty or "consequences" what so ever! Failing in this game just doesn't exist! You constantly mess up the same thing over and over again and don't even get sent back to the start or your story changes, which makes it extremely boring. In the end of every ad of your game, the "person" fails to spell a word and their character dies, so that means APPARENTLY THAT ISN'T HOW IT WORKS IN THE ACTUAL GAME! To fix these disappointments, I would either change your ads to how the game actually is, or change your game to how the ads describe it.
LATEST UPDATE RUINED THE GAME.
by Jules1500 on 2019/06/10 12:52
I’ve been playing Word Story for awhile now. I really like the game; however, the new update is a real disappointment. Before the update you could watch an ad and get 60 coins when you needed them for the bombs that explode letters you don’t need. The bombs cost 60 coins when you need them. This worked out great because you weren’t using up all the coins you have stored up for that purpose. Now with the latest update when you watch an ad you only get 25 coins; however, the bombs still cost you 60 coins. Is this your way of making the player watch more ads to get the coins for the bombs? I don’t think this is fair for the player. If you don’t have enough coins stored up you will have to watch three ads for 25 coins each in order to use one bomb. Please change it back.
Stunned
by digital dude101 on 2018/10/22 01:26
I love the creativity put into this game, it go’s from digging with a stick to a spoon to a hammer and so on. I was really stunned, I thought it would’ve been like the stick man series were each action would come to an ending or a death but you had to create the word/action until I found myself digging with a stick😳. I also found myself overconfident, I would feel so confident that the word was the state Ohio just to find out that Ohio wasn’t a “legal word” lol. Over all I think it’s a great game👍🏻 and if you love words and like to challenge your iQ then go ahead just don’t blame me when you find out a word you’ve been using for a long time isn’t a “legal word”.
Disappointing even as a time-waster
by Amgant on 2019/04/16 22:44
I didn’t see the ads people are talking about so I didn’t have super high expectations when I downloaded this, but I will say that the plot seems fun until eventually, it’s just like a hundred or more levels of stagnant storyline where literally nothing happens except the character saying stuff. It has an insane amount of levels to beat the game which usually doesn’t bother me but because I was drawn to the plot and storyline, I kept playing and I got to level 705(I’m sure it goes up to 1000 or something) and now I’m writing this review because it’s honestly disappointing that nothing really happens when he breaks out of jail for hundreds more levels. people should know that its probably not going to be rewarding to beat it. Someone said this game is only good for being bored and can make you even more bored. That is true. :/
Ads are FAKE
by vivianne lowen on 2019/03/30 21:09
You probably downloaded this app, looking forward to playing a fun game were you escape from jail. After watching the ads you would think “oh, this looks really fun”. In the actual game though, you don’t get to fake being pregnant, you don’t escape from the ceiling, you just simply stay in your cell and spell out words. The most activity that happens in the game is digging a dumb hole that after hundreds of days, still leads to nothing. The ads make the game seem super fun and excited and look really fun to play, but once you download the app you just spell out words. The game is boring, and the after seeing the ads you get really disappointed after playing the game. For me, this app definitely does not deserve a 4.8 rating. It doesn’t even deserve a three. I would honestly give it a one star rating. Misleading ads, boring, and dumb. Don’t download unless you’re looking for a huge disappointment. 😕
Misleading and glitchy....
by VectorMagnus on 2019/04/20 23:35
I, like most people that downloaded this game, downloaded it because I saw an ad that showcased a word game with silly animations. It seemed intriguing in thought why not give it a shot. This game is nothing like what it advertises. You are basically a stick figure digging a hole in the wall and dumping out the debris outside the prison. You spell words, random things you spell fall on your head, and you dig your hole. That’s it. After a few levels I begin having issues with the game freezing. The music still plays but when you try to tap on a letter or anything else in the user interface nothing happens. So I have to force close and start over. This happens constantly to the point where I see no point in continuing to play as it’s ridiculously frustrating. In its current state, I can’t in good faith recommend anyone to play this game.
Ugh
by Mynyato on 2019/02/11 17:23
Okay so, I do have to agree that this game is fun to an extent. Yes, it is a very good time waster and it does sometimes make you think. Some of the problems I have with this game is that there are just way too many ads. I get around a 5 second to 30 second ad every 2 to 3 puzzles and it’s just very irritating. Another thing, is that when I downloaded this game and started to play it, I had started to notice that the word puzzles were just random words and some of them just didn’t make any sense at all, I at least thought they would have added in some puzzles in the game that were prison related or not stupidly random, one of the ones that I had got, the word was, “HAS”. Like, who in the world would have thought of that, and some of the words just never really made any sense, it’s semi hard to get coins to purchase “Hints”, and I just really thought this game was just a cash grab and or a quick way to get some money and not really put much effort into the puzzles and words that you had to find. Overall, this game is both worth the download and not worth the download, if you want to have a good time waster, download this game, but if you hate constant ad interruptions and the unending amount of random as h*ll words, don’t download this game.
Falsely Advertised But Mildly Entertaining
by SaraBLQ on 2019/01/27 16:32
This game has many, MANY, ads for it, as I’m sure why most of you are here. These ads do not show the real game. This game would probably be WAY more fun if it was high action and you had to escape like that, but that is not the case. You just slowly and tediously dig away at a wall forever. I presume this is the case because making the already poor quality animations was too much work for them. And 7/10 times when you solve a puzzle it doesn’t even help your guy. It just gets through the day without any new animation. If you do like word games, this game is still fun, but not as fun as the concept the ads show. I’d also like to bet that you can’t even get to the ocean, because the day says “???” But that’s just an educated guess.
Lacks plot progression...has tons of ads
by mysticbluebmw on 2019/02/06 21:32
I’m on day 477 and almost 700 yards in, but for the last few weeks and probably 500 yards or so nothing has progressed. I’ve been in the the tunnel for what seems like 90% of my time playing the game which has been 3-4 weeks. I play about 1-2 hours a day in my free time. But it’s always the same; easy to medium to hard, then repeat over and over and over with no more story progression after the 1st couple of days playing. Totally stale. Update: about 550 days in now and basically completed story. They added an xtra scene that is just plain lame. Plus all the words have bearing anything except for a few in the very beginning. Could be any simple word from the dictionary with no hint as to what. The only only hints are taking letters away by watching ads...meh...boring now.
Wired...but FUN!!!
by 1stCeye on 2019/03/02 03:35
A very easy going game that you cannot help but to smile, then laugh at! Words are available to score extra coins...and it collects into a chest! The poor prisoner is obeying most of the rules, but what is an innocent person to do??? It’s perfect to sort of stretch has your mind and relax...🙈 🤔 it is still early In my game, so more later.....🛸 😎 MUCH LATER: Sorry to say.....I actually got bored.....if the words related to escaping, might have been more fun....but this stick guy got only so far and stalled.....no progress....words from nowhere, no reference to guess with...10 letters to start with for a 7 letter word....then the same old ads....a good game that got moldy....😧😧😧😧😧😧😥😥😥😥
New items?
by Gothitasally on 2018/10/21 15:46
I know you’ve all seen this in the other reviews but why not add another to the pile. The game is pretty fun at first, because we’re getting new items as we play. It’s interesting and we wanna help the little stick guy. The levels seem like they’re getting harder because more and more letters are coming in. But at ~60 levels in, nothings happening. I haven’t played too far, but it seems that the hammer’s the last item. And the levels don’t get any more difficult. It seems it doesn’t go above 6 letters, and there’s so many 3 letter levels. We’re this far in, we don’t need anymore 3 letters. Overall the game is fun but so repetitive. If you want to lure the audience in with new items, then actually make new items. Don’t just stop after 60 levels.
Great game forget the story
by dgzjp on 2019/05/20 16:02
Choosing new words to eliminate letters and finding the right word with the letters remaining is fun and often challenging. The story seems like a silly distraction and is, eventually virtually eliminated from the game. I am over level 750 and have yet to spin and get the mystery box. This defies all reasonable odds. What”s with this? I also have the Day 5 reward for the last 3 days. Anything marked with a ? Is questionable as to if you’ll ever get it. Despite being told that a special challenge would be unlocked after level 3000 I am now told there are only 2000 levels- WHAT”S UP?
Awful, Repetitive, Rinse, Repeat Forever
by carddante on 2019/02/04 16:25
I have no clue how this is the top game in word games. It starts out kind of fun- you are trapped in a jail cell and use the provided letters to find tools to help you escape your cell. Except that only happens once or twice. Then you start digging out and I’ve been digging this hole for 150+ game “days.” Each time it tells you that you make progress- inch by inch. I keep thinking after I reached a certain milestone that I’d get to do something new, but no, you just keep digging with no idea of your progress or how long you still have to go. Even watching the ads (oh God, so many ads) to get a tool like a pick axe doesn’t speed up your advancement rate. I dug 30” with my bare hands and 36” with a pick axe. Anyways, I gave the game more than it’s fair shot and now it’s going in the trash like so many other cash grab advertising games.
Horrible! JUST HORRENDOUS!
by a very angrey person! on 2019/06/19 01:35
This is such a RIP OFF!?!?! I got the game hoping that it would be a fun interesting brain teaser the ads had me thinking it was going to be worth while. Going back to the comments everyone has the same issues. And it’s the truth!! THERE ARE NO SCENES WERE YOUR CHARACTERS MOVE AND TALK TO THE GUARDS!?! THERE IS NO MODE WERE YOU TRY AND ACT PREGNANT!! THERE IS NO TIME WHERE YOU TRY TO LOOK LIKE A JOCK TO SEDUCE A GUARD THERE IS NO TIME YOU TRY TO LOOK LIKE A GIRL TO ESCAPE!! Everything about this game is a lie! I am extremely disappointed in the creators of this game! They lie to get ratings and that’s so WRONG! I would rate this game a 0-10 if there was such but the lowest rating I’m giving is 1-10 they don’t deserve to to have the ratings they have and I’m definitely deleting this game after this. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS GAME FOR ANYONE AT ALL!! The creator should be ashamed this is a JOKE! Always read the reviews before you get the game. I wish I did. :(😡🤬😤
Boring
by Jason C White on 2018/12/28 22:13
The “game” is a story of a stick figure escaping from prison. The story is constantly being interrupted by ads and word jumbles with extra letters. Guessing an incorrect word removes the letters guessed from the correct word. Guessing real words gives “cash” that can be used to buy hints. Watch ads for more “cash”. Also get interrupted by ads. Even had an ad interrupted by another ad. There is no real choice involved with the jumbles, so if you can make “shiv”, “shovel”, and “spoon” with the available letters and “spoon” is their choice for the story that will be the word. While some of words are key to the story many of the jumbles have nothing to do with the story at all... or are crap like a bottle to bribe the guard with for no apparent reason or food eaten in the cell. Ever watch a movie with five scenes eating food for no apparent reason related to the story? No? Probably because it’s boring!
Could B Enjoyable, but not as artistic as it should be.
by DrippyLivv on 2019/02/08 03:31
This game is fun somehow to people who have five stars but HONESTLY this game needs fixing. It doesn’t crash on me, but at the same time is boring. When you see the advertising on a game you’re playing and it just pops up, it looks fun but when you download it, it looks like something ran over a Frankenstein Meme and replaced it as your game. I’m not being rude, but what I mean when I say it should artistic, I don’t mean it has to have colors, I mean it needs to show action because there is no connection between unconditional and worth waiting for. So fix the bugs and maybe i’ll kind of change those stars but honestly i’m am deleting for now. -AJ-
Too many levels with no progress to be made
by jtoihmnm on 2019/01/28 23:39
This game is nothing like what they advertise it to be on other games. I downloaded this game looking to have fun trying to “sneak past the guards” or “helping my cell mate escape”. Neither of these happen it takes FOREVER to make any progress one of the “levels” has 313 levels in order to progress. To me that is in heard of and makes you feel like you are getting nowhere, especially when they the same graphic of your person digging the same tunnel in the same spot time and time again. Don’t waste your time trying to play this. I’d like to chalk this up to an old “bait and switch” move car dealerships do, this game is nothing like they advertise. I made it “322 days” and haven’t made any progress for “112 days”. Again don’t waste your time. I will be deleting this game after this review.
Nothing like the ads
by Mar is aweisme on 2019/02/28 00:58
I was just scrolling through my phone and I kept on seeing this game and I finally decided to download it and I thought it was gonna be like the ads where u have lots of stuff going on and ur all around the place trying to find a way to get out. I was nothing like that. I was there for a while trying to find the part where the excitement happens and I sat there and nothing basically happened. Also I thought it was gonna be like if u get the word wrong u are just caught and u get no more chances but instead that app would wait there Until you got the word right. I thought this was gonna be a challenge and I like challenges and I rly didn’t get challenged. I wish that they would actually show what it’s like in the ads. I do not recommend
Read this review before downloading
by Astral-kun on 2019/02/22 04:24
When I saw the adds to this game, it looked super fun! I definitely wanted to try this game out. At the beginning it tells the person playing you were accused of killing your wife. I thought this was gonna be an entertaining game when I saw the first bit + the adds. So I played a couple levels, “I’ll probably get to the fun part in a moment!” I thought. I played more and more and I STILL didn’t get past digging through the wall. I am surprised there were so many good ratings for this game. I DO NOT recommend it to any players. Another thing is it is just random words your guessing, unlike the adds which you had to pick words to help you escape. You have no clues and your just guessing words randomly! This game is terrible and I wish they would fix it. I really had high hopes for this app 😕.
Not as advertised.
by BaBaBlackJones on 2019/01/30 21:52
Made it to Chapter 11 and it’s nothing like the advertisement that shows you setting prisoners free, escaping in a suit case, etc. There is not much in regards to a story. I get that it’s a word game, but once you progress to a certain point you don’t get nearly as much story progression as you did in the beginning and even then it’s the same 6 scenes repeated with different “levels of progression” which by the way doesn’t seem to mean much. If you like word games, you may enjoy it, if you’re looking for something different in the word game genre this does absolutely nothing innovative. I give it 1 star because of the deceptive advertising which actually led me to download it, the lack of actual meaningful story progression, bad pacing, and the game does nothing new or different to keep me coming back for more.
Needs Work
by Vinoeo on 2019/03/09 13:44
In this game the point is to supposed to be escaping prison, and that’s what the game is mainly about. In the ads of the game it shows the player typing a word, and the player doing exactly as the player types. Although, in the game the app is way different than the ads. In the game the words mostly have very little to do with what the player typed, and the player keeps trying to escape prison but never gets out. The game basically just does everything to keep you stalling and not escaping. The app can work on making their ads match up to the game by changing the ad. Also, the game could match up to the ad by making the games words more relevant to what he is doing and not be endless. If the developer sees this please take it as advice.
No.
by AMajesticSheep on 2019/03/01 08:33
The ads for this are extremely false because I’m on day 258 and nothing has happened for at least 100 levels. There are multiple ads to go through, which is normal, but ads are the things that make the game worse. Sure it may be fun, but making an ad this misleading is just not right. If you have an ad with this much animation, why not incorporate it into the game? Just make it like the ad. Nothing happens at all in half the chapters except the same animations over and over again, picking up rocks, dripping rocks, moving a rock, adding support to the large tunnel, etc. But it adds absolutely nothing to the storyline. So the only way you guys can fix it is change the ads to stop misleading people or actually spend time on the game instead of making your ads more interesting than it.
Fun at first but then mehhh
by Gaigsibz on 2019/08/10 17:12
I downloaded this when I saw the ad in another game (something I rarely ever do). I loved it at first because there was a story, cool cut scenes, goals, etc but as you play along, all of that fun stuff disappears. I get that the point of game is that the character is stuck in jail but it gets very boring. I’m on day 350 and it’s the exact same game it was 100 days ago. It doesn’t get more exciting or interesting. He never gets out of jail. So the few cut scenes you do get as the game progresses are repetitive and lead nowhere. It would be so much better if he actually got out of jail and then was on the run. Each word would help him continue hiding out or getting a lawyer or something. The game is just super repetitive and boring after awhile.
Do not play.
by :) pretty on 2019/06/05 08:47
Do. Not. Play. This. Game. I can’t stress it enough how infuriating this game was. But yet, I played it, enough levels to give it two stars. Although this game is bland, it was addicting... I guess once you play you really want to know the next mystery word so you keep playing and playing and then boom! You realize this game is trash because the cutscenes/storyline makes no sense. The little stickman can’t even speak proper English... one of the lines he says and I quote “You’re so good at this puzzle, I will make more difficult” Huh? Also once you escape prison (Yes I made it that far) Nothing new happens except getting a new background... So yeah, spoiler, if it counts as one. Let me save you the trouble of downloading it because it is not worth it. DO NOT PLAY THIS BORING GAME.
So Many Unfortunate Things
by Hcvmxgmcgm on 2019/01/26 22:40
This game made me sick. How you ask? Well first, you have the false advertising, like pretty much all real reviews say. This game is completely different, and it’s way too repetitive. There are also ads overwhelming you, preventing you from having a good experience and actually trying to play (even though there’s not much of a point playing anyway). But you know what’s the most sad thing about this game? The fake reviews. This game has so many fake, paid people writing a “five star” rating. There are so many fake reviews that it’s gone to 5 star. I’ve seen a few reviews saying about false advertising, but the developers just say that they’re developing the game, which is a really bad reason. I really hope that this game changes in the future, it’s really not great.
