No way to restore in app purchase
by 1Marshall91 on 2021/06/17 01:10
I loved this game until I bought the new butterfly pass, which only lasted for a few days. I sent an email, which got a quick response, but no refund or restoration of my purchase. I won’t spend any more money on this app and have deleted it from my iPad.
Fun and challenging. 💕

I enjoy this game. I can play all day😀
Ads
by Me2 me2 me2 on 2021/06/15 17:59
I would pay for the game, it is fun enough. There is not an option for that and the ads are just to intrusive. Banners blocking buttons, long commercial ads between rounds. Fun game. Ads are too frustrating though. Ruins the fun.
Addictive game
by ILove Jim on 2021/06/12 04:53
I love this game so much that I want to play the next level right away. I do cheat sometimes because I do not know the word. It gets harder and harder but enjoy the challenge! It also gives you the definition which I like to know what the word means. Overall, fun if you like word games.
Good game but ads are bad
by rmaya59 on 2021/06/10 13:25
The game works and is good but the ads are bad. Too many ads and ads you can’t get passed to get credit for bonuses. One ad requires you allow app tracking and won’t let you get anything until you accept. However the setting they want you to change doesn’t exist any longer where they show.
I love this !
by Kyy5 on 2021/06/09 08:39
This app is perfect I am learning new words everyday! and challenging my brain in the process.
Used to enjoy
by tobywinston on 2021/06/08 16:11
I enjoy this game but I’m deleting it because I’m getting repeated demands to change my settings so they can track me. I can’t use the video choice anymore unless I allow the access. Not going to do that!
Time out!

Pore the gam.bul, I am asked after each window if I am over 15 or under 15 interrupts the game and I have to renter the game it literally asks after every one! It is a " unity" ad I am unable to continue unless shears the game and come back in again. It literally mins my game time how can I make it stop?
Contains Scams
by ItsAllCrap on 2021/06/06 17:04
As I was playing on the Word Calm game app, a notification popped up letting me know I was chosen to participate in a survey and when finished filling it out, I had a chance to win an iPod Pro. After finishing and given the three chances to choose one of nine boxes, one of which containing the prize, I correctly chose the one with the iPod. It then directed me to fill out information. Before doing so, I researched and found out this is an illegitimate Internet site aimed to collect my personal information and credit card. Beware!
Coins…

I Really don’t like how you have to use 100 coins for one letter but then you only eat a few coins back!!! Argh!!!

Issues
by cgg49 on 2021/06/03 12:27
I love playing the game but the issues for watching videos for coins or free hints won’t work now. It comes up with a screen for allowing tracking for the app & no matter what you select it doesn’t work. Very frustrating so guess I will have to delete this app & not recommend it. Unhappy player.
Good, but the developers need a dictionary!
by Bluesman425 on 2021/06/02 17:54
Come on guys. If you’re going to create a word game, get a dictionary. For instance “forest” is a word, yet your game doesn’t recognize it. Also, just because you don’t think the word is appropriate, and if it’s in the dictionary, it should be counted, not penalize you. Your program recognizes “rape” but not “raped”. Really?
Edison Add Glitch
by allthesenicknescantbetaken on 2021/05/31 19:33
I really like this game but I am about to quit playing it because of the Edison adds. The majority of time when the Edison Add comes on, it plays for a second or two and then goes black. I either have to wait about 20 minutes or longer to start playing the game again or turn on the phone and turn it back on. I don’t get the coins for watching since it turned off on its own. Very frustrating.
Great Word Game
by Girly Gamer on 2021/05/29 02:34
Easy at first, but then gets more difficult as you progress. Helps build your vocabulary too. Great for kids. So far, I haven’t had to spend any money either.

Resets
by gottago11 on 2021/05/27 02:56
Not sure if I missed an update or if I got a broken one but it constantly resets, used to love this game but it is gotten considerably harder to play. Maybe because I am now over 3000 games played. Possibly I am too smart for it, yeah I like that.Also locks up a lot and then I have to close it.

by Apphelppleeze on 2021/05/17 03:11
This game could be fun. You have made it impossible to get rewards to assist with words when stuck. Hope this is fixed. I am playing other ones but I would give it a better score if there was more opportunities to earn coins. Frustrating. Please make that easier.
Game play and tracking

I enjoy playing your game, but refuse to allow tracking. I may have to delete soon.
Keeps me calm and focused

I love that this game keeps me calm,focused and it helps me fall asleep as well . These type of word games keeps your mind busy and I love it ! Just hate all the ads 😞😒
Uses obscure words
by Anglewand on 2021/05/13 00:15
I consider my vocabulary to be quite extensive. I am a prolific reader and believe I know a plethora of words. But when you throw words like “dace” which even I have not heard of then it gives the appearance your game is rigged to force users to buy coins. This game is anything but calming. I will be removing it forthwith.

It was a great game, until they want to track me! They now prevent receiving points or money for hints, unless I go to settings and allow tracking! The game is no longer fun!! I’ll find something else that doesn’t make me allow tracking!!
Keeps kicking me out!
by Dora96701 on 2021/05/09 01:55
It kicks out when the ads play. Screen goes blank, then need to reboot/power down. Too much hassles in middle of playing.
Disappointing
by Maximum$ on 2021/05/08 15:58
I got this app due to an ad on another game I.play. Thought that the ad showed the actual game. It showed answering clues and filling in a grid. That is not the case. Apparently the crossword aspect is that the words cross each other. Don’t waste your time. As other people have noted, this is the same game re-packaged.
Great game!!!
by Chicki74 on 2021/05/07 03:04
I really like this game. I feel the bright colors and the words of affirmation are what really keep me going in this game. So far I’m on the 66th level and still enjoying it. Thank you for all that you do in making this game!!! Wonderful job!!! 💙💙💙
Dictionary

Game disconnects bluetooth GRR
by Punknhead on 2021/05/02 21:18
The only app I’ve encountered that conflicts with streaming music, white noise apps, and/or wireless speakers. With sounds and music turned off in the game, when I open it, it nevertheless silences what I was listening to. When I close the game (cuz no game is better than music!), I find it has messed with my bluetooth settings, requiring they be reset before the speaker will work again. Oh, well. At least the annoyance was free. DELETE

So many missing words
by Todtc on 2021/04/28 17:10
Almost every game I’m sending in very common missing words. There’s no way this game is developed in the US, thus it’s really frustrating to keep finding words that the game says don’t exist.

I love this word game. My husband and I tried several games before he talked me into this. I wish I was better at it, my husband is much better than me but I like to play the extra points, he just marches forward. What else are two old people supposed to do💕
Many missing words
by CharraJ on 2021/04/25 01:52
I know every puzzle can’t be perfect and you guys can’t remember every single word, but missing words that are just plural forms of words or words endings in -es already there should be easy to keep track of. I keep sending missing words, but it’s frustrating to not be about to get the points for them. As a player, I shouldn’t know more words than you do. Some levels I find 5-10 missing bonus words. Otherwise, it’s a good time-filler. Oh, and it’d be fun if you’d put a timer on the levels so I can beat myself.

by Santaquin_HoPZ on 2021/04/24 05:14
It’s a fun game but I don’t like that the add showed a phrase with a missing word, which doesn’t exist in the actual game. Irritating to download it thinking I’m getting one kind of game when that isn’t so.

Read this is you are considering this game
by isla the alicorn on 2021/04/16 21:01
It is a good game but I would not recommend turning notifications on because it can be annoying sometimes and I know you might be having trouble on a level but I think that it is better to think then have the answers given to you by the app in notifications if they think you are struggling but other than that I love the game and I would recommend it to many people.
Ads Are Despicable
by AustinGramma on 2021/04/14 19:13
The game is all right. My objection to this game is their advertising practices. No amount of playing this game is going to change the future of someone with an Alzheimer’s diagnosis. Of course their ad does not explicitly say they will cure it. They certainly imply it, though. Playing on the fears of the elderly, and especially anyone with a recent Alzheimer’s diagnosis, is just despicable.
Ads are too much
by fashiondesignermom on 2021/04/13 11:52
I like tha game but play others more because there are fewer and shorter ads in other games. The ads are very annoying, especially the long ones.

What is the matter with your game???i have enough point to get a letter toward the end of my game and all you want me to do is by coins. I don’t BUY from anyone. That’s why you had ads!!! If you are going to cheat people... you are gone . I can find other games to play and , you really call this Word CALM.??? I think nit ! Right now I am so frustrated with you that if it would help I would smash my pad... but, that wouldn’t help!
Constant Ads
by Missgoodvibe on 2021/04/03 14:04
Constant ads and mostly pointless coins. It’s fun to play but it would be better if you could earn or win something more than a hint with the coins and if there were FAR fewer video ads.

Inconsistent with word recognition
by Sophie 1986 on 2021/03/29 14:47
This app misses too much vocabulary. And even more frustrating, the same word could be accepted on one level and not on the next. I’ve seen this problem mentioned on many other reviews. If they’d just fix the problem it could be awesome.
Points
by LynneAlex on 2021/03/28 05:48
This *word* game needs a dictionary overhaul. There are so many words that are not recognized that it makes it very frustrating to play. I would not recommend this game to anyone who is looking for a top quality word game to play.

Why doesn’t your game recognize the words bottle, hotter, rape, etc.? If it’s not in the puzzle, fine, but it should go into the found a word that is not in the puzzle box. Your game is getting weirder all the time. I may have to quit playing it, but I enjoy word games too much. This one is just becoming frustrating! Please fix it!

Word Calm- crossword puzzle

by lesnla on 2021/03/23 02:34
Advertisements run between every level, so while you go through the easy ones you are watching an ad every minute and it’s the opposite of calming. Wish they would let us buy the app so we can get rid of the apps but they don’t apparently. So, unplayable

Need bug fixes
Oh heck no
by MrOrndog on 2021/03/11 00:14
Edit: they mostly fixed the adds, but I finally had enough of the word bank. It was ok for a few months of playing, but about the time they do away with 3 letter words it gets worse and worse. Last game I played took “roses” but not “rose” as an example. After about 8 or 9 common words it refused, which every reject lowers your insight award, I gave up. Quit and deleted. Better games out there. New version, zero stars. Why? Ads auto plays while you’re still playing a round! Not just no, but heck no. Seriously, you’re making a word and BOOM an unskippable ad takes over! Is that “calming”? NO! Other issues with word bank still exist. And now the dictionary has a glitch too. But the ads. Nope. Just no. Done.
Disappointing
by Fluffymcbutterbum on 2021/03/08 05:12
I have multiple of the word apps but the ad for this one was completely different then the app. I thought something was going to be different but it’s all the same.
Racially Offensive Word
by Ecokate on 2021/03/06 20:21
I was just playing this game and one of the words was “MULATTO”, which is wildly inappropriate.
Daily bonus
by JoeArcher578 on 2021/03/05 13:06
The daily reward has a “bonus”, so to speak. It takes forever, if at all, to load. Most of the an a never loads. What a rip. Now that you fixed bonus coins so you can get them, the game is very fun. Just fix the daily bonus video.
Frustrating
by PICOBOY BIRDY on 2021/03/03 12:27
I used to really enjoy this game. Not anymore! I agree with other reviewer‘s regarding the daily puzzle. It used to be difficult to obtain three stars, since the latest version it is almost impossible. Twice I have received three stars in the last few days and did not receive the coin rewards. When contacting the developer, I was advised that I had used the hint button more than one time. Because there are so many four letter words that will fit within the context of a specific area of the puzzle, it’s almost impossible to get it right on the first try. Previously, I was usually able to figure out the correct words for the specific space. Now, because there are so many possibilities, it’s all luck and I have been using hints, which I never had to do before. I also agree with the other reviewer‘s regarding the vast amount of missing words from their dictionary. Many common words are missing, and even the plural of a word that it will except is rejected as a plural. This is not a calming word game it is a frustrating word game and I am deleting it. Sad to see it go as I have been playing it for several years, but enough is enough.

The app seems to freeze up if left in the background. Have to force restart. I’m constantly adding in missing words in English as there are many that aren’t included in bonus words. Mostly a good bit of fun when you want to keep your mind occupied.
Fun and Relaxing
by JimGWZDP on 2021/02/25 01:09
But... you all need to do something about your app and how it works with your ads. We understand that ads are part of free games. But when one of your ads runs, when you return to the game, the volume is shut off. And I have a couple of ad driven games, and yours is the only one that has this issue.
No way to stop it pausing other audio

It's too bad because it's the only one of these games that has a semi-reasonable "no ads" price, but it's also the only one that won't let you listen to music while you play.

Easy to hit wrong button
by rosiebu on 2021/02/21 20:12
Very frustrating.... There is an inapp purchase option of 280 coins for some of the letters to be revealed. But it is so easy to accidentally touch the button and whoosh.... coins are gone. There needs to be a “confirm” button so this won’t be accidentally activated. I am soooo tired of losing coins due to this. The game is ok but I do mot appreciate being taken advantage of. I have reported this several times and they say they will fix this but they apparently don’t mean it.

A GREAT WORD GAME
by applesukjt on 2019/09/12 14:20
This is one of several word games that are put out by the same group but under different names. I find it very useful in keeping my mind active through searching for words from a given set of letters. I am 66 years old and this game is an asset to me. I’ve looked at and played some of the games developed specifically to enhance brain function. This game allows me to mess with words, which is something I enjoy, and my ability to figure the words out increases quickly and I think it enhances brain performance better than those games which tout themselves as being designed just for that purpose. These kind of things are more important than a lot us know. I appreciate the game and my biggest problem when playing it is myself and my reaction to any given problem I find in the game. I get bothered when it won’t accept words that are real words, which really isn’t an issue of great merit. I uninstalled one of these games yesterday when it presented me with the same puzzle I had just completed. I liked that game like I like this one, and I hope to reinstall it and carry on where I left off. Again, that problem is not that big of a deal and I am too impulsive at times. I would ask the developers to keep my name with my review, if there’s a means of doing so, and I want to thank them again for working on these games. Their efforts and the results of their efforts are very worthwhile.

Previously, I was usually able to figure out the correct words for the specific space. Now, because there are so many possibilities, it’s all luck and I have been using hints, which I never had to do before. I also agree with the other reviewer‘s regarding the vast amount of missing words from their dictionary. Many common words are missing, and even the plural of a word that it will except is rejected as a plural. This is not a calming word game it is a frustrating word game and I am deleting it. Sad to see it go as I have been playing it for several years, but enough is enough.

I so love to play this word game. It is by far the best word game that I’ve ever had the great pleasure of playing. I recommend this game to one and all! Give it a try and I’m sure you’ll be glad you did @ 💯%. Good Luck 🍀 and Happy Playing.✌🏼& ♥️🔚 I give it five ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, plus an A+, because that’s how much I enjoy playing and I so appreciate everyone that has had anything to do with developing this game. I’ve noticed fairly early on in to playing this game, that the more I play, the sharper my brain recall is becoming, plus, just having plain old common sense will get you far in the game and in life, and in general, now, who wouldn’t like that?! Lol, please pardon/excuse me, for I say what mean and mean what I say, that is, within reason and with keeping in mind of who I am speaking with. I’ve always been pretty good with having a photographic memory, besides, it really doesn’t take having a photographic memory to play this game, all it takes is to properly know your grammar from grade school. However, though, I will say that this game will help keep you from slipping in your grammar and that the main reason that I chose this specific game. I hope you all enjoy this word game as much as I and my family have. Thanks, Per: Ruthie McQueeney ✌🏼❤️
Great on the Surface - Bad at the Core
by Lowell O. on 2020/07/30 14:01
I played about 150 levels of this, and even more levels of other versions by the same company. But it's frustrated me too many times and I have to remove it. A number of common words are missing from their dictionary. Ancient and unused words are in there that probably shouldn't be. And their puzzle maker sometimes "misses" perfectly good words and instead chooses something completely obscure. For example, given the letters P-L-Y-R-T-A, they don't spell PARTLY or even PALTRY but instead choose RAPTLY. Who has ever heard, much less used, the word "raptly?" It's not called "Word Difficulty" or "Word Frustration" but "Word Calm." But it has the opposite effect until they change the core dictionary. They make the definition of each word available, and they cite the dictionary they quote from, but sometimes they quote from dictionaries I've never heard of. Why not stick with mainstream dictionaries and words that are still in use today? The game is great in concept, well-programmed and has a pleasant user interface. But at it's heart was a bad decision on what set of words to build the game upon.
MANY advertisements. No longer enjoy daily challenge
by Notagain:( on 2020/08/27 21:19
I opted to continue to play free version, so I patiently(?) waited through the video after EACH GAME, a few of which are very difficult to clear from screen (programming glitches?). Played game avidly after first downloaded, so much so that I reached Level 2489 (waaaayy too much time on device). Previously eagerly looked forward to the daily challenge because in order to attain the 3-star level, you follow the clover leaf and determine correct word for its position. But at some point in Aug 2020, it has become exactly the same “HERALD” letter scramble for 2-3 weeks in a row, in exactly same pattern/sequence, so I no longer play that. Levels are no longer a challenge, possibly from complacency on my part and/or theirs. And yes, am current on updates. Possibly the lack of challenge is because it’s the free version, and this is a method to encourage the player to purchase the game. After opening this morning and seeing exactly same daily challenge AGAIN, I’ve decided if they no longer care I don’t either, so am deleting the app.
Daily puzzle
by fanofsports1314 on 2019/04/03 12:16
I enjoy the game very much. Only one negative comment from me giving this game a 5 star. I find it difficult at times to get the 3 stars in the daily puzzle. The reason being is the fact there are too many 4 or 5 letter words in the puzzle as opposed to a variety which would include a couple 3 letter words as well as a couple 6 letter words. When you start the puzzle with an S for a 4 letter word and you have anywhere from 4-6 to choose from it is more or less luck. I mean I do not want to sit there and think of a 4 letter word then take the last letter of that word and see if it makes another word. Too many a’s e’s s’s and t’s make it too difficult. I would rather see a variety of words ranging from 3-6 letters as opposed to 4-5 letter words. It becomes more luck than anything. Good game though and if the daily puzzle changes, I will come back and give it a 5 star.
Good, simple word game
by there.is.none.available! on 2019/09/25 05:23
If you plan to play this a lot you will probably want to spend the $3 to remove ads because after your first 10-20 levels there is a video ad you have to watch in between almost every board you play which gets very annoying. I guess that’s the idea so players will pay. The $3 is fair I think. I won’t be playing much so I’ll put up with the ads. —UPDATE: Okay, so much for me not playing much. I just finished level 105. This game is quickly addictive. The good news is that when you achieve higher levels the ads are much less frequent. One thing I love about this game is that there is no time pressure; if you get stuck you can take your time. The higher difficulty builds very slowly which I like.
Grrrrr Too Many Ads
by Stitchnanny on 2019/11/11 05:08
Revised: I paid the $3 to end the ads. I love this game, so much so I’m on level 1147. But I’ve noticed since level 1000 there is an ad after every single puzzle. 98% of the time it’s the same ad and it has a false exit button, so you have to sit through a 30 ad after every puzzle. It takes me less time to play a round. I know ads are needed so we can play free but this is ridiculous. I would have given this game 5 stars if not for the constant, repeating ads. If y’all lessen the amount of ads a little before I delete the app, I’ll revise my review and stay. Thank you.
Gives Xs for numerous real words
by YLime7530 on 2019/09/13 18:40
I like this game, advertised for Alzheimer’s patients & prevention but it ignores real legitimate words which is confusing and frustrating. The same word will be accepted for one puzzle and rejected for another. Words that aren’t on the board are supposed to be accepted as bonus words not exed as though they aren’t words. It is not only rejecting short words or less polite words. I’m on level 81, I don’t remember this happening earlier in the game. It accepted eat but not ate, said a 5 letter word was wrong. Also doesn’t recognize legitimate words that a nun might not like and you don’t expect them to be on the board but at least acknowledge they’re part of the English language, hoe is a garden tool it’s a bit much. It’s confusing for those with cognitive issues to get a big X for words that ARE words!
Fun until it loses simple vocabulary—UNACCEPTABLE!!!
by Lgh98t on 2019/10/01 16:14
As a word nerd, I have been thoroughly enjoyed playing this somewhat challenging game, until now. At level 550, when given the letters RAHECRY, the game refuses to accept obvious words, for example: care, arch, hear, hare, and so on. This is totally unacceptable, I’m not sure, at this point, if it is worth continuing with whatever challenge is being presented when I will not get credit for these “bonus” words which do not appear in the crossword. This is very frustrating, and I’m tired of having to constantly try to “educate” the game by supplying “missing words.” Please respond and repair. Another suggestion is that the developers reference a more reputable and exhaustive dictionary. Many workable words which appear in Webster’s unabridged dictionary are rejected by the game.
Grad of 63
by Mo. Reader on 2019/11/04 15:24
When came to spelling test in school I did poorly. Was embarrassed that I couldn’t do better in learning. I guess I was a slow learner. Over the years I slowly learned the concept of being able to do a better job of spelling. This game has been a challenge, but a useful as well as helpful source, for me anyway in visually seeing the letters at each level of the game and being able to think of the right letters to put together to form a word that will work. This game, for me, has been a great tool in learning to spell the correct words to fill in the puzzles.
Very frustrating
by RottieMom2016 on 2020/04/20 14:52
Although I am continuing to play this game, I find it extremely frustrating at times. Basic words are acceptable in their singular form, but not in plural form (for instance, ‘stone’ is accepted but ‘stones’ is not). I always try to report the missing word, but I don’t have a lot of faith that anyone even pays attention. Rather it’s there to make the player feel better. Also, very obscure words are in the puzzle - many scientific or chemical words that a person without that background would not be able to figure out. And words that work in one puzzle don’t work in another. Simply put, too many basic words not accepted, too many extremely obscure words in the puzzles, and inconsistent acceptance of words from one puzzle to the next.
Word Calm is Awesome!
by NewsGirl-VA-1959 on 2020/04/20 10:12
Thanks for helping me keep my mind busy during this sad period of mayhem, death & destruction. THE PEOPLE NEED AN OUTLET and WORD CALM aids people, the world over, by providing a “mind vacation” from fear, anxiety and worry over surviving the latest vicious, colorblind, non-discriminating, international world terror — COVID-19 — another invisible enemy that rears its extremely, unusually vile head like “a thief in the night.” WORD CALM has given me a relaxing opportunity to take an hour or two from fearing and fighting to help keep strangers, my family and other loved ones from succumbing to the ravages of COVID-19. Despite the timing of ongoing events, WORD CALM is a great mind puzzle to aid in calamity and vocabulary building for the young and old, alike. I do, however, have a problem with ads which won’t stop when prompted appropriately to do so. More often than not, I find myself closing out certain ads repeatedly which only occurs with certain games. Thanks Again, T.D.A.B. U.S. Army (RET) Photojournalist KILLEEN, TEXAS
Problems with the latest release
by HeySonnie on 2021/02/08 10:45
After the new changes to the game (which I like, BTW) there are a few problems. One day I completed the Daily Challenge and didn’t get a checkmark or stars. This time I got both the check and stars, but everything locked up upon completion, and I had to go out, swipe to force the game to close, then go back in to see what had happened. Also, the notification at the start says FREE BOUNS, which I presume means BONUS.
Fun to play but no instructions
by ibaphd on 2020/01/30 10:22
I find this fun to play but I cannot find detailed instructions. In particular, the Daily Challenge is confusing. I’ve played all 30 days this month, yet I only have 27 stars. I was on track until a couple of days ago, then I didn’t receive any stars. I don’t understand how to get stars during the game or what the three big stars are at the end of the challenge. How can I ever get 50 stars if the maximum number number of days in a month is 31? Other people talk about it like they know what’s going on so somewhere I’m missing something. How does it work? How can I find answers to questions?
Disappointed in update
by AudioFan on 2021/02/09 14:28
This was one of my favorite games. I would play for hours. It is challenging and fun to play while listening to music or an audio book. The update changed that. I play on my phone and now I can no longer listen to anything on my phone while playing this game. The update also revamped looking up the the meaning of a word that is familiar to the player. That feature has been changed or removed. In addition, all of the words in the dictionary are not loaded in the game. It may include the singular tense but not the plural or the reverse; or some words are accepted on one level but not others, which is very confusing.
Room for improvement
by Brit1955 on 2020/05/17 00:27
I very much enjoy the game; however, one feature of it annoys me. I’ve looked for instructions about the features but I’ve not been able to find anything so I’ve basically winged the way I play. The buttons that allow you to expend so many coins to expose letters are badly positioned because oftentimes I’ve inadvertently pressed a button that needlessly exposes letters before I’ve had an opportunity to play. Those buttons need to be positioned so that if they’re selected, it would definitely be intentional. Put them at the top!! And better explain all the rules of playing.
It’s Okay
by A23491 on 2020/05/22 15:47
Ok, so when I used it, it was fine! But the ads, they have false “x”s. And it’s just aggravating. And I don’t even press anything on my screen, but then it just randomly takes me to the App Store. If you want this, I recommend for you to either buy the “No Ads” or just play when not connected to Wi-Fi or something. Then maybe it won’t have ads. I would buy the “No Ads” but I don’t have any money on my iTunes. So just look at other reviews with the same problem, I guess. But other than that, it’s a good app with an ad after each game. Please, at least make it after every two games so there is less aggravation. 🥺
Inappropriate for children
by CarCol50 on 2020/02/13 11:24
Users should be aware that this ap allows ads that are HIGHLY inappropriate for children. This is so even though otherwise benign “bad” words are not allowed to play the game. Also, it is often impossible (probably by design) to close certain ads, even when the “x” appears. You may spend five minutes trying to close one ad. I have found you just have to exit the game altogether. Lastly, there are MANY common everyday words that are not accepted even though the game includes many words that are specialized jargon. Very inconsistent! It is clear that the game is either computer generated and/or designed by a non-native English-speaker.
Many missing words
by CharraJ on 2021/04/25 01:52
I know every puzzle can’t be perfect and you guys can’t remember every single word, but missing words that are just plural forms of words or words endings in -es already there should be easy to keep track of. I keep sending missing words, but it’s frustrating to not be about to get the points for them. As a player, I shouldn’t know more words than you do. Some levels I find 5-10 missing bonus words. Otherwise, it’s a good time-filler. Oh, and it’d be fun if you’d put a timer on the levels so I can beat myself.
Fun, addictive game
by Countrygal58 on 2019/11/18 13:34
Very fun addictive game. Ads are extremely intrusive. Otherwise would have been five stars. I understand having ads for free games, but 2 ads going and very loud and slow to X out. Update Changed my rating to 2 stars. Ads are getting worse. Trying to play tournament but have to keep rebooting because ads close my browser and one in peticular is just disgusting! Blood and guts everywhere? For what age are these ads appropriate? Deleted game. Horrible! Matchington Mansion is disgusting! Takes over your browser and prison breaks? A man holding himself trying to use the restroom? Poo flying everywhere? Once it comes up you have to reboot or it continues after each set! Would never ever purchase anything from this maker. Worst I have ever seen!
This game is amazing!
by Logan Noyea on 2020/05/16 11:35
This game is so fun and relaxing, and doesn't need any WiFi( like all the rest of my games). So when your going somewhere and you're nervous,you can play this game if it helps you calm down. It's an easy way to let your brain escape from all the worries and you can have so much fun doing it!! I love how you can also learn and find words that you didn't know where even created. Anyways, this game is so fun you should really really try it.
Quibbles
by Patty fisher on 2020/04/15 04:44
I really enjoy this and find it generally more challenging than other word games. But three things aggravate me 1. It gets redundant and often seems like I’m doing the same puzzle again numerous times. 2. Please move the buttons for help. I’ve lost count of the times I have accidentally hit one of those - usually the one that finished the puzzle - accidentally while my hand hovered near the grid. 3. Ads. I would upgrade to a premium version but I can’t see any opportunity to do so.

Retired English teacher opines
by GramGram39 on 2020/01/17 00:49
At 80 y.o. I was delighted to have a word game that might keep my neurons and synapses from rusting out. I like the competition with supposed other players. I do suspect that this game was built by a person who learned English as a second language. Obvious words are rejected and words I’ve never heard of in my life are accepted. But the challenge was worth it. And then tonight the watch-the-video-and-earn-a-clue function quit working. Not good. I tried restarting the game, even the iPad. No go. Any ideas?
Good Thinking Game
by leesaleigh on 2020/05/05 01:47
I enjoy this game as it keeps your mind active, I do have an issue with the credits that are supposed to come with watching ads. Sometimes when you want to watch an ad to gain coins for letters, it won’t allow a ad to come. I’ve tried different ways to get the ads and sometimes it will work if you hit the higher coin destination but a lot of the times it just won’t give you an ad to gain coins for letters which get disappointing. Besides that I really enjoy the game.
Update maybe??
by Leesha A on 2020/01/18 23:32
I absolutely love playing this because it really makes me think outside the box when it comes to words that I don’t use everyday. However, many times after you finish a level and it goes to an ad, the game freezes and you have to close it out and reboot it. It’s super annoying and I’m not sure if that’s a bug fix within the app or something else. Other than that I like the brain challenge this provides.
Read this is you are considering this game
by isla the alicorn on 2021/04/16 21:01
It is a good game but I would not recommend turning notifications on because it can be annoying sometimes and I know you might be having trouble on a level but I think that it is better to think then have the answers given to you by the app in notifications if they think you are struggling but other than that I love the game and I would recommend it to many people.
Daily puzzle frustrating
by Chloeg100 on 2020/01/25 15:22
It’s too frustrating .... it’s virtually impossible to acquire the three stars. There could be eight four letter words that start with the letter T. I get aggravated. I made it my goal to get the 500 coins for January, but when the coins are gone, I’m deleting ap. The ads are frustrating too. If I liked the game enough, I would pay for no ads. However, I’m not paying to be frustrated. Some of the words in puzzle are also archaic and wouldn’t even appear in a New York Times puzzle. IMHO.
Word Calm
by SOS1415 on 2020/01/11 19:48
I enjoy the game very much but am frustrated sometimes by ridiculous Definitions; also, when I get the message that I had already found a word when I hadn’t. They are referring to a similar word. Layer on, it gets accepted. I opened up this morning and had lost over 200 points overnight. I worked hard for them and don’t understand what happened. I did nothing to cause it. This would be a great game if it weren’t so frustrating, including words that don’t exist.
Should be updated
by Beachnut75 on 2020/11/03 11:02
I play this game frequently. So much so that I’m constantly annoyed with a issue. On a level where using a 3 letter word is not a option, it’s the banner that is used to repeatedly remind you. “ 3 lettered words are NOT allowed on the level!” Must it seriously sound like a petulant reminder? With capital letters and an exclamation mark as if we were being shouted at? Cut it out. It’s stupid. Sometimes your finger slips in your efforts and a 3 lettered word slips through.
Love it, miss it.
by GigglesOhPlenty on 2021/01/04 16:07
I have been playing Word Calm for several months and I'm on about level 730. This is my favorite game and I play it everyday. Since November 2020, it won't load up. I know there was an update sometime in November and I wonder if there's something that went wrong. I would really like to play this game again, but I don't want to start back on level one. Thanks, Teresa
Edison Add Glitch
by allthesenicknescantbetaken on 2021/05/31 19:33
I really like this game but I am about to quit playing it because of the Edison adds. The majority of time when the Edison Add comes on, it plays for a second or two and then goes black. I either have to wait about 20 minutes or longer to start playing the game again or turn on the phone and turn it back on. I don’t get the coins for watching since it turned off on its own. Very frustrating.
Fun Brain Stimulator
by nites on 2020/08/08 22:05
I enjoy playing word games to keep my mind sharp...this game provides enough of a challenge to support ample stimulation. I did go ahead and purchase the “Remove Ads” as they became redundant as well as annoying. The one turn-off is the obvious cheating that takes place...by copying from a “cheater - answer” website; which anyone can do to receive coins, but obviously no other benefit. In my opinion, really detracts from the positive premise of the game.
Love this game
by Rhandalea1969 on 2020/09/02 03:16
Love this game, definetly have no major complaints, it’s quite addicting to play, have had no issues with boards freezing up, the ads don’t even bother me, only thing wrong is my daily game is the same board every day, a cpl weeks now, hopefully someone is able to fix this for me, otherwise, no regrets downloading this game
Good game but ...
by Nana13131313131313 on 2020/05/28 15:34
Love the game, but there are TOO MANY FRIGGING ADS!!! An ad after every turn is aggravating as all get out. And some of them there’s no way to X out of, so I have to close the game and reopen it. That’s a pain. And getting the same damn€d ad turn after turn after turn is also aggravating! There needs to be a way to opt out of so many ads without paying $$$. How about spending some of the coins I’ve earned to opt out of ads? Jeepers.
Easy to hit wrong button
by rosiebu on 2021/02/21 20:12
Very frustrating.... There is an inapp purchase option of 280 coins for some of the letters to be revealed. But it is so easy to accidentally touch the button and whoosh.... coins are gone. There needs to be a “confirm” button so this won’t be accidentally activated. I am soooo tired of losing coins due to this. The game is ok but I do mot appreciate being taken advantage of. I have reported this several times and they say they will fix this but they apparently don’t mean it.
It’s Word Crossy under a different name.
by Captain Lillith on 2019/05/14 16:53
I downloaded this game because the ad I saw looked interesting. Unfortunately it would seem that this was one of those ads that has nothing to do with the actual gameplay. This game is exactly the same as Word Crossy—it even has all of the same sound effects except it penalizes you for some words that aren’t in the puzzle even though it tells you that you can get bonus words (words that aren’t in the puzzle) and presumably either get points or more likely once you get a certain number of bonus words you get a few coins as a reward.
Add issues
by Antowel on 2020/05/25 11:15
At least half of The ads have the sound on even if you’ve set the settings to sound off and are very loud . They offer fake coins for watching adds which can be used to purchase hints , at least 1/3 of the adds I watch don’t give coin at the end , I’ve reported it to the company and they said it’s cause I stop the add in the middle , which I do not , and they want me to screenshot the add that doesn’t pay but it’s multiple adds and I don’t know it won’t pay till it’s over so it won’t be getting fixed
Not your average time sink
by NastyMcCracken on 2019/10/14 20:41
This app has actually improved my vocabulary. It has brought words back to my daily writing and speaking that have been buried someplace in my 62 year old brain. It has also proven that English is certainly not any easier of a language than any other, well maybe Latin. It's definitely a five star app for me.
I Won
by jsgal20 on 2020/03/29 21:45
I clearly had one the last tournament that ended a little while ago! I was ahead by a few points when they tournament clock ended, and for just under 5 minutes the trophy showed won! However, suddenly my trophy showed #2 and I would like to know why? If that is the way you treat the players then I will be deleting the app! I also couldn’t even collect the coins for 2nd place! I should have received my 1000 coins, period! My nickname IS JSGal!
Annoying praise words
by rabbitears4 on 2019/09/14 07:31
Minor but annoying that some of the praise words for getting a right answer are just cut off on the voice speaking in the game. For instance, ”unbelievable” is cut off before the last syllable. Otherwise it's fun and as a 75ish senior, I like to keep my mind active. I have developed a great vocabulary over the years and loved doing compositions in school. Time just flies playing this game.
Love the game, hate when the x to get rid of ads doesn’t work
by F14Navy on 2020/07/12 10:45
You really should get in touch with whoever controls the ads, there are some that even after you suffer through the entire thing won’t let you get rid of them because the x doesn’t work. There is one in particular rated 18+ that will not go away, I actually have to reboot my iPad, very annoying.
Not so great
by suzgl57 on 2020/08/30 14:35
I have been playing for quite a while. Several times the Daily puzzle has been stuck on the same one....currently this last time it has been stuck for 3 weeks now. I have emailed them twice but nothing has been fixed. I had a reply from 1st email saying they would work on it. No response from 2nd email. I paid for this one so I don’t have to put up with ads. Save your money.
Love word calm!
by marryin1 on 2020/11/29 15:28
I’ve become so addicted to word calm calm, care of my my home & eating have become 2nd place. I’m almost 85, & started it thinking it would keep my mind sharp, like it was most of my younger life, like it always was, But it’s done more than that! It’s kept me entertained! I live alone & I need mental stimulation, more than TELEPHONES & TV, PARTCULARLY during this pandemic! Thank you wordcalm!
Enjoyable
by KimC725 on 2020/03/01 07:27
Since I had a stroke several years ago, I've been trying to find ways to get my brain working better & this game helps without aggravating me cause I can't process things like I used to. Thank you for creating something I can enjoy while exercising my brain.
Addictive game
by ILove Jim on 2021/06/12 04:53
I love this game so much that I want to play the next level right away. I do cheat sometimes because I do not know the word. It gets harder and harder but enjoy the challenge! It also gives you the definition which I like to know what the word means. Overall, fun if you like word games.
Words not in dictionary
by takjen on 2019/12/29 20:34
It seems, especially while playing tournaments, that you invent words to run down the bank. When one is playing this without social media links or spending “money”/points, as many of us want to do, you cannot really build up a sustainable bank. The made up words are not useful except for the reasons stated above. If that is your goal, then please have site removed from “free” “non-WiFi” games. It is definitely false misleading information.
Good
by Yorkiestoo on 2019/04/16 17:15
Interesting. Simple at first, becomes more challenging as more levels are completed. Ads, but by no means as intrusive as other games I have tried. I can handle a few seconds of ads. Other games I must sit through half a minute or more of ads. Give this a try if you like word games.

No way to restore in app purchase
by 1Marshall91 on 2021/06/17 01:10
I loved this game until I bought the new butterfly pass, which only lasted for a few days. I sent an email, which got a quick response, but no refund or restoration of my purchase. I won’t spend any more money on this app and have deleted it from my iPad.
Fun and challenging. 💕

I enjoy this game. I can play all day😀
Ads
by Me2 me2 me2 on 2021/06/15 17:59
I would pay for the game, it is fun enough. There is not an option for that and the ads are just to intrusive. Banners blocking buttons, long commercial ads between rounds. Fun game. Ads are too frustrating though. Ruins the fun.
Addictive game
by ILove Jim on 2021/06/12 04:53
I love this game so much that I want to play the next level right away. I do cheat sometimes because I do not know the word. It gets harder and harder but enjoy the challenge! It also gives you the definition which I like to know what the word means. Overall, fun if you like word games.
Good game but ads are bad
by rmaya59 on 2021/06/10 13:25
The game works and is good but the ads are bad. Too many ads and ads you can’t get passed to get credit for bonuses. One ad requires you allow app tracking and won’t let you get anything until you accept. However the setting they want you to change doesn’t exist any longer where they show.
I love this !
by Kyy5 on 2021/06/09 08:39
This app is perfect I am learning new words everyday! and challenging my brain in the process.

by tobywinston on 2021/06/08 16:11
I enjoy this game but I’m deleting it because I’m getting repeated demands to change my settings so they can track me. I can’t use the video choice anymore unless I allow the access. Not going to do that!

Pore the gam.bul, I am asked after each window if I am over 15 or under 15 interrupts the game and I have to renter the game it literally asks after every one! It is a " unity" ad I am unable to continue unless shears the game and come back in again. It literally mins my game time how can I make it stop?
Contains Scams
by ItsAllCrap on 2021/06/06 17:04
As I was playing on the Word Calm game app, a notification popped up letting me know I was chosen to participate in a survey and when finished filling it out, I had a chance to win an iPod Pro. After finishing and given the three chances to choose one of nine boxes, one of which containing the prize, I correctly chose the one with the iPod. It then directed me to fill out information. Before doing so, I researched and found out this is an illegitimate Internet site aimed to collect my personal information and credit card. Beware!
Coins…

Issues
by cgg49 on 2021/06/03 12:27
I love playing the game but the issues for watching videos for coins or free hints won’t work now. It comes up with a screen for allowing tracking for the app & no matter what you select it doesn’t work. Very frustrating so guess I will have to delete this app & not recommend it. Unhappy player.
Good, but the developers need a dictionary!
by Bluesman425 on 2021/06/02 17:54
Come on guys. If you’re going to create a word game, get a dictionary. For instance “forest” is a word, yet your game doesn’t recognize it. Also, just because you don’t think the word is appropriate, and if it’s in the dictionary, it should be counted, not penalize you. Your program recognizes “rape” but not “raped”. Really?
Edison Add Glitch
by allthesenicknescantbetaken on 2021/05/31 19:33
I really like this game but I am about to quit playing it because of the Edison adds. The majority of time when the Edison Add comes on, it plays for a second or two and then goes black. I either have to wait about 20 minutes or longer to start playing the game again or turn on the phone and turn it back on. I don’t get the coins for watching since it turned off on its own. Very frustrating.
Great Word Game
by Girly Gamer on 2021/05/29 02:34
Easy at first, but then gets more difficult as you progress. Helps build your vocabulary too. Great for kids. So far, I haven’t had to spend any money either.

Resets
by gottago11 on 2021/05/27 02:56
Not sure if I missed an update or if I got a broken one but it constantly resets, used to love this game but it is gotten considerably harder to play. Maybe because I am now over 3000 games played. Possibly I am too smart for it, yeah I like that.Also locks up a lot and then I have to close it.

by Apphelppleeze on 2021/05/17 03:11
This game could be fun. You have made it impossible to get rewards to assist with words when stuck. Hope this is fixed. I am playing other ones but I would give it a better score if there was more opportunities to earn coins. Frustrating. Please make that easier.
Game play and tracking

I enjoy playing your game, but refuse to allow tracking. I may have to delete soon.
Keeps me calm and focused

I love that this game keeps me calm,focused and it helps me fall asleep as well . These type of word games keeps your mind busy and I love it ! Just hate all the ads 😞😒
Uses obscure words
by Anglewand on 2021/05/13 00:15
I consider my vocabulary to be quite extensive. I am a prolific reader and believe I know a plethora of words. But when you throw words like “dace” which even I have not heard of then it gives the appearance your game is rigged to force users to buy coins. This game is anything but calming. I will be removing it forthwith.

It was a great game, until they want to track me! They now prevent receiving points or money for hints, unless I go to settings and allow tracking! The game is no longer fun!! I’ll find something else that doesn’t make me allow tracking!!
Keeps kicking me out!
by Dora96701 on 2021/05/09 01:55
It kicks out when the ads play. Screen goes blank, then need to reboot/power down. Too much hassles in middle of playing.
Disappointing
by Maximum$ on 2021/05/08 15:58
I got this app due to an ad on another game I.play. Thought that the ad showed the actual game. It showed answering clues and filling in a grid. That is not the case. Apparently the crossword aspect is that the words cross each other. Don’t waste your time. As other people have noted, this is the same game re-packaged.
Great game!!!
by Chicki74 on 2021/05/07 03:04
I really like this game. I feel the bright colors and the words of affirmation are what really keep me going in this game. So far I’m on the 66th level and still enjoying it. Thank you for all that you do in making this game!!! Wonderful job!!! 💙💙💙

Game disconnects bluetooth GRR
by Punknhead on 2021/05/02 21:18
The only app I’ve encountered that conflicts with streaming music, white noise apps, and/or wireless speakers. With sounds and music turned off in the game, when I open it, it nevertheless silences what I was listening to. When I close the game (cuz no game is better than music!), I find it has messed with my bluetooth settings, requiring they be reset before the speaker will work again. Oh, well. At least the annoyance was free. DELETE

So many missing words
by Todtc on 2021/04/28 17:10
Almost every game I’m sending in very common missing words. There’s no way this game is developed in the US, thus it’s really frustrating to keep finding words that the game says don’t exist.

by Warship Willie on 2021/04/27 16:00
I love this word game. My husband and I tried several games before he talked me into this. I wish I was better at it, my husband is much better than me but I like to play the extra points, he just marches forward. What else are two old people supposed to do💕
Many missing words
by CharraJ on 2021/04/25 01:52
I know every puzzle can’t be perfect and you guys can’t remember every single word, but missing words that are just plural forms of words or words endings in -es already there should be easy to keep track of. I keep sending missing words, but it’s frustrating to not be about to get the points for them. As a player, I shouldn’t know more words than you do. Some levels I find 5-10 missing bonus words. Otherwise, it’s a good time-filler. Oh, and it’d be fun if you’d put a timer on the levels so I can beat myself.

False advertising
by Santaquin_HoPZ on 2021/04/24 05:14
It’s a fun game but I don’t like that the add showed a phrase with a missing word, which doesn’t exist in the actual game. Irritating to download it thinking I’m getting one kind of game when that isn’t so.

Read this is you are considering this game
by isla the alicorn on 2021/04/16 21:01
It is a good game but I would not recommend turning notifications on because it can be annoying sometimes and I know you might be having trouble on a level but I think that it is better to think then have the answers given to you by the app in notifications if they think you are struggling but other than that I love the game and I would recommend it to many people.
Ads Are Despicable
by AustinGramma on 2021/04/14 19:13
The game is all right. My objection to this game is their advertising practices. No amount of playing this game is going to change the future of someone with an Alzheimer’s diagnosis. Of course their ad does not explicitly say they will cure it. They certainly imply it, though. Playing on the fears of the elderly, and especially anyone with a recent Alzheimer’s diagnosis, is just despicable.
Ads are too much
by fashiondesignermom on 2021/04/13 11:52
I like tha game but play others more because there are fewer and shorter ads in other games. The ads are very annoying, especially the long ones.

What is the matter with your game???i have enough point to get a letter toward the end of my game and all you want me to do is by coins. I don’t BUY from anyone. That’s why you had ads!!! If you are going to cheat people... you are gone . I can find other games to play and , you really call this Word CALM.??? I think nit ! Right now I am so frustrated with you that if it would help I would smash my pad... but, that wouldn’t help!
Constant Ads
by Missgoodvibe on 2021/04/03 14:04
Constant ads and mostly pointless coins. It’s fun to play but it would be better if you could earn or win something more than a hint with the coins and if there were FAR fewer video ads.

Inconsistent with word recognition
by Sophie 1986 on 2021/03/29 14:47
This app misses too much vocabulary. And even more frustrating, the same word could be accepted on one level and not on the next. I’ve seen this problem mentioned on many other reviews. If they’d just fix the problem it could be awesome.
Points
by LynneAlex on 2021/03/28 05:48
This *word* game needs a dictionary overhaul. There are so many words that are not recognized that it makes it very frustrating to play. I would not recommend this game to anyone who is looking for a top quality word game to play.

Why doesn’t your game recognize the words bottle, hotter, rape, etc.? If it’s not in the puzzle, fine, but it should go into the found a word that is not in the puzzle box. Your game is getting weirder all the time. I may have to quit playing it, but I enjoy word games too much. This one is just becoming frustrating! Please fix it!

Word Calm- crossword puzzle
by Hard knot on 2021/03/24 00:53
I really like ( Word Calm ) crossword puzzle, I don’t like the the fact that you have to buy coins in order to play, and free hints are not free, because when I use (1) one I lose coins that I paid for.

When are faced with a tough game and run out of points you may have to wait quite a while before an opportunity will open up.
Advertisements
by lesnla on 2021/03/23 02:34
Advertisements run between every level, so while you go through the easy ones you are watching an ad every minute and it’s the opposite of calming. Wish they would let us buy the app so we can get rid of the apps but they don’t apparently. So, unplayable

Need bug fixes
Oh heck no
by MrOrndog on 2021/03/11 00:14
Edit: they mostly fixed the adds, but I finally had enough of the word bank. It was ok for a few months of playing, but about the time they do away with 3 letter words it gets worse and worse. Last game I played took “roses” but not “rose” as an example. After about 8 or 9 common words it refused, which every reject lowers your insight award, I gave up. Quit and deleted. Better games out there. New version, zero stars. Why? Ads auto plays while you’re still playing a round! Not just no, but heck no. Seriously, you’re making a word and BOOM an unskippable ad takes over! Is that “calming”? NO! Other issues with word bank still exist. And now the dictionary has a glitch too. But the ads. Nope. Just no. Done.
Disappointing
by Fluffymcbutterbum on 2021/03/08 05:12
I have multiple of the word apps but the ad for this one was completely different then the app. I thought something was going to be different but it’s all the same.
Racially Offensive Word
by Ecokate on 2021/03/06 20:21
I was just playing this game and one of the words was “MULATTO”, which is wildly inappropriate.
Daily bonus
by JoeArcher578 on 2021/03/05 13:06
The daily reward has a “bonus”, so to speak. It takes forever, if at all, to load. Most of the an a never loads. What a rip. Now that you fixed bonus coins so you can get them, the game is very fun. Just fix the daily bonus video.
Frustrating
by PICOBOY BIRDY on 2021/03/03 12:27
I used to really enjoy this game. Not anymore! I agree with other reviewer‘s regarding the daily puzzle. It used to be difficult to obtain three stars, since the latest version it is almost impossible. Twice I have received three stars in the last few days and did not receive the coin rewards. When contacting the developer, I was advised that I had used the hint button more than one time. Because there are so many four letter words that will fit within the context of a specific area of the puzzle, it’s almost impossible to get it right on the first try. Previously, I was usually able to figure out the correct words for the specific space. Now, because there are so many possibilities, it’s all luck and I have been using hints, which I never had to do before. I also agree with the other reviewer‘s regarding the vast amount of missing words from their dictionary. Many common words are missing, and even the plural of a word that it will except is rejected as a plural. This is not a calming word game it is a frustrating word game and I am deleting it. Sad to see it go as I have been playing it for several years, but enough is enough.

by TellMeSomethingGood on 2021/02/25 06:22
The app seems to freeze up if left in the background. Have to force restart. I’m constantly adding in missing words in English as there are many that aren’t included in bonus words. Mostly a good bit of fun when you want to keep your mind occupied.
Fun and Relaxing
by JimGWZDP on 2021/02/25 01:09
But... you all need to do something about your app and how it works with your ads. We understand that ads are part of free games. But when one of your ads runs, when you return to the game, the volume is shut off. And I have a couple of ad driven games, and yours is the only one that has this issue.
No way to stop it pausing other audio
by ezpkns69 on 2021/02/24 02:23
It's too bad because it's the only one of these games that has a semi-reasonable "no ads" price, but it's also the only one that won't let you listen to music while you play.

Easy to hit wrong button
by rosiebu on 2021/02/21 20:12
Very frustrating.... There is an inapp purchase option of 280 coins for some of the letters to be revealed. But it is so easy to accidentally touch the button and whoosh.... coins are gone. There needs to be a “confirm” button so this won’t be accidentally activated. I am soooo tired of losing coins due to this. The game is ok but I do mot appreciate being taken advantage of. I have reported this several times and they say they will fix this but they apparently don’t mean it.

This is one of several word games that are put out by the same group but under different names. I find it very useful in keeping my mind active through searching for words from a given set of letters. I am 66 years old and this game is an asset to me. I’ve looked at and played some of the games developed specifically to enhance brain function. This game allows me to mess with words, which is something I enjoy, and my ability to figure the words out increases quickly and I think it enhances brain performance better than those games which tout themselves as being designed just for that purpose. These kind of things are more important than a lot us know. I appreciate the game and my biggest problem when playing it is myself and my reaction to any given problem I find in the game. I get bothered when it won’t accept words that are real words, which really isn’t an issue of great merit. I uninstalled one of these games yesterday when it presented me with the same puzzle I had just completed. I liked that game like I like this one, and I hope to reinstall it and carry on where I left off. Again, that problem is not that big of a deal and I am too impulsive at times. I would ask the developers to keep my name with my review, if there’s a means of doing so, and I want to thank them again for working on these games. Their efforts and the results of their efforts are very worthwhile.
Frustrating
by PICOBOY BIRDY on 2021/03/03 12:27
I used to really enjoy this game. Not anymore! I agree with other reviewer‘s regarding the daily puzzle. It used to be difficult to obtain three stars, since the latest version it is almost impossible. Twice I have received three stars in the last few days and did not receive the coin rewards. When contacting the developer, I was advised that I had used the hint button more than one time. Because there are so many four letter words that will fit within the context of a specific area of the puzzle, it’s almost impossible to get it right on the first try. Previously, I was usually able to figure out the correct words for the specific space. Now, because there are so many possibilities, it’s all luck and I have been using hints, which I never had to do before. I also agree with the other reviewer‘s regarding the vast amount of missing words from their dictionary. Many common words are missing, and even the plural of a word that it will except is rejected as a plural. This is not a calming word game it is a frustrating word game and I am deleting it. Sad to see it go as I have been playing it for several years, but enough is enough.

I so love to play this word game. It is by far the best word game that I’ve ever had the great pleasure of playing. I recommend this game to one and all! Give it a try and I’m sure you’ll be glad you did @ 💯%. Good Luck 🍀 and Happy Playing.✌🏼& ♥️🔚 I give it five ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, plus an A+, because that’s how much I enjoy playing and I so appreciate everyone that has had anything to do with developing this game. I’ve noticed fairly early on in to playing this game, that the more I play, the sharper my brain recall is becoming, plus, just having plain old common sense will get you far in the game and in life, and in general, now, who wouldn’t like that?! Lol, please pardon/excuse me, for I say what mean and mean what I say, that is, within reason and with keeping in mind of who I am speaking with. I’ve always been pretty good with having a photographic memory, besides, it really doesn’t take having a photographic memory to play this game, all it takes is to properly know your grammar from grade school. However, though, I will say that this game will help keep you from slipping in your grammar and that the main reason that I chose this specific game. I hope you all enjoy this word game as much as I and my family have. Thanks, Per: Ruthie McQueeney ✌🏼❤️
Great on the Surface - Bad at the Core
by Lowell O. on 2020/07/30 14:01
I played about 150 levels of this, and even more levels of other versions by the same company. But it's frustrated me too many times and I have to remove it. A number of common words are missing from their dictionary. Ancient and unused words are in there that probably shouldn't be. And their puzzle maker sometimes "misses" perfectly good words and instead chooses something completely obscure. For example, given the letters P-L-Y-R-T-A, they don't spell PARTLY or even PALTRY but instead choose RAPTLY. Who has ever heard, much less used, the word "raptly?" It's not called "Word Difficulty" or "Word Frustration" but "Word Calm." But it has the opposite effect until they change the core dictionary. They make the definition of each word available, and they cite the dictionary they quote from, but sometimes they quote from dictionaries I've never heard of. Why not stick with mainstream dictionaries and words that are still in use today? The game is great in concept, well-programmed and has a pleasant user interface. But at it's heart was a bad decision on what set of words to build the game upon.
MANY advertisements. No longer enjoy daily challenge
by Notagain:( on 2020/08/27 21:19
I opted to continue to play free version, so I patiently(?) waited through the video after EACH GAME, a few of which are very difficult to clear from screen (programming glitches?). Played game avidly after first downloaded, so much so that I reached Level 2489 (waaaayy too much time on device). Previously eagerly looked forward to the daily challenge because in order to attain the 3-star level, you follow the clover leaf and determine correct word for its position. But at some point in Aug 2020, it has become exactly the same “HERALD” letter scramble for 2-3 weeks in a row, in exactly same pattern/sequence, so I no longer play that. Levels are no longer a challenge, possibly from complacency on my part and/or theirs. And yes, am current on updates. Possibly the lack of challenge is because it’s the free version, and this is a method to encourage the player to purchase the game. After opening this morning and seeing exactly same daily challenge AGAIN, I’ve decided if they no longer care I don’t either, so am deleting the app.
Daily puzzle
by fanofsports1314 on 2019/04/03 12:16
I enjoy the game very much. Only one negative comment from me giving this game a 5 star. I find it difficult at times to get the 3 stars in the daily puzzle. The reason being is the fact there are too many 4 or 5 letter words in the puzzle as opposed to a variety which would include a couple 3 letter words as well as a couple 6 letter words. When you start the puzzle with an S for a 4 letter word and you have anywhere from 4-6 to choose from it is more or less luck. I mean I do not want to sit there and think of a 4 letter word then take the last letter of that word and see if it makes another word. Too many a’s e’s s’s and t’s make it too difficult. I would rather see a variety of words ranging from 3-6 letters as opposed to 4-5 letter words. It becomes more luck than anything. Good game though and if the daily puzzle changes, I will come back and give it a 5 star.
Good, simple word game
by there.is.none.available! on 2019/09/25 05:23
If you plan to play this a lot you will probably want to spend the $3 to remove ads because after your first 10-20 levels there is a video ad you have to watch in between almost every board you play which gets very annoying. I guess that’s the idea so players will pay. The $3 is fair I think. I won’t be playing much so I’ll put up with the ads. —UPDATE: Okay, so much for me not playing much. I just finished level 105. This game is quickly addictive. The good news is that when you achieve higher levels the ads are much less frequent. One thing I love about this game is that there is no time pressure; if you get stuck you can take your time. The higher difficulty builds very slowly which I like.
Grrrrr Too Many Ads
by Stitchnanny on 2019/11/11 05:08
Revised: I paid the $3 to end the ads. I love this game, so much so I’m on level 1147. But I’ve noticed since level 1000 there is an ad after every single puzzle. 98% of the time it’s the same ad and it has a false exit button, so you have to sit through a 30 ad after every puzzle. It takes me less time to play a round. I know ads are needed so we can play free but this is ridiculous. I would have given this game 5 stars if not for the constant, repeating ads. If y’all lessen the amount of ads a little before I delete the app, I’ll revise my review and stay. Thank you.
Gives Xs for numerous real words
by YLime7530 on 2019/09/13 18:40
I like this game, advertised for Alzheimer’s patients & prevention but it ignores real legitimate words which is confusing and frustrating. The same word will be accepted for one puzzle and rejected for another. Words that aren’t on the board are supposed to be accepted as bonus words not exed as though they aren’t words. It is not only rejecting short words or less polite words. I’m on level 81, I don’t remember this happening earlier in the game. It accepted eat but not ate, said a 5 letter word was wrong. Also doesn’t recognize legitimate words that a nun might not like and you don’t expect them to be on the board but at least acknowledge they’re part of the English language, hoe is a garden tool it’s a bit much. It’s confusing for those with cognitive issues to get a big X for words that ARE words!
Fun until it loses simple vocabulary—UNACCEPTABLE!!!
by Lgh98t on 2019/10/01 16:14
As a word nerd, I have been thoroughly enjoyed playing this somewhat challenging game, until now. At level 550, when given the letters RAHECRY, the game refuses to accept obvious words, for example: care, arch, hear, hare, and so on. This is totally unacceptable, I’m not sure, at this point, if it is worth continuing with whatever challenge is being presented when I will not get credit for these “bonus” words which do not appear in the crossword. This is very frustrating, and I’m tired of having to constantly try to “educate” the game by supplying “missing words.” Please respond and repair. Another suggestion is that the developers reference a more reputable and exhaustive dictionary. Many workable words which appear in Webster’s unabridged dictionary are rejected by the game.
Grad of 63
by Mo. Reader on 2019/11/04 15:24
When came to spelling test in school I did poorly. Was embarrassed that I couldn’t do better in learning. I guess I was a slow learner. Over the years I slowly learned the concept of being able to do a better job of spelling. This game has been a challenge, but a useful as well as helpful source, for me anyway in visually seeing the letters at each level of the game and being able to think of the right letters to put together to form a word that will work. This game, for me, has been a great tool in learning to spell the correct words to fill in the puzzles.
Very frustrating
by RottieMom2016 on 2020/04/20 14:52
Although I am continuing to play this game, I find it extremely frustrating at times. Basic words are acceptable in their singular form, but not in plural form (for instance, ‘stone’ is accepted but ‘stones’ is not). I always try to report the missing word, but I don’t have a lot of faith that anyone even pays attention. Rather it’s there to make the player feel better. Also, very obscure words are in the puzzle - many scientific or chemical words that a person without that background would not be able to figure out. And words that work in one puzzle don’t work in another. Simply put, too many basic words not accepted, too many extremely obscure words in the puzzles, and inconsistent acceptance of words from one puzzle to the next.
Word Calm is Awesome!
by NewsGirl-VA-1959 on 2020/04/20 10:12
Thanks for helping me keep my mind busy during this sad period of mayhem, death & destruction. THE PEOPLE NEED AN OUTLET and WORD CALM aids people, the world over, by providing a “mind vacation” from fear, anxiety and worry over surviving the latest vicious, colorblind, non-discriminating, international world terror — COVID-19 — another invisible enemy that rears its extremely, unusually vile head like “a thief in the night.” WORD CALM has given me a relaxing opportunity to take an hour or two from fearing and fighting to help keep strangers, my family and other loved ones from succumbing to the ravages of COVID-19. Despite the timing of ongoing events, WORD CALM is a great mind puzzle to aid in calamity and vocabulary building for the young and old, alike. I do, however, have a problem with ads which won’t stop when prompted appropriately to do so. More often than not, I find myself closing out certain ads repeatedly which only occurs with certain games. Thanks Again, T.D.A.B. U.S. Army (RET) Photojournalist KILLEEN, TEXAS
Problems with the latest release
by HeySonnie on 2021/02/08 10:45
After the new changes to the game (which I like, BTW) there are a few problems. One day I completed the Daily Challenge and didn’t get a checkmark or stars. This time I got both the check and stars, but everything locked up upon completion, and I had to go out, swipe to force the game to close, then go back in to see what had happened. Also, the notification at the start says FREE BOUNS, which I presume means BONUS.
Fun to play but no instructions
by ibaphd on 2020/01/30 10:22
I find this fun to play but I cannot find detailed instructions. In particular, the Daily Challenge is confusing. I’ve played all 30 days this month, yet I only have 27 stars. I was on track until a couple of days ago, then I didn’t receive any stars. I don’t understand how to get stars during the game or what the three big stars are at the end of the challenge. How can I ever get 50 stars if the maximum number number of days in a month is 31? Other people talk about it like they know what’s going on so somewhere I’m missing something. How does it work? How can I find answers to questions?
Disappointed in update
by AudioFan on 2021/02/09 14:28
This was one of my favorite games. I would play for hours. It is challenging and fun to play while listening to music or an audio book. The update changed that. I play on my phone and now I can no longer listen to anything on my phone while playing this game. The update also revamped looking up the the meaning of a word that is familiar to the player. That feature has been changed or removed. In addition, all of the words in the dictionary are not loaded in the game. It may include the singular tense but not the plural or the reverse; or some words are accepted on one level but not others, which is very confusing.
Room for improvement
by Brit1955 on 2020/05/17 00:27
I very much enjoy the game; however, one feature of it annoys me. I’ve looked for instructions about the features but I’ve not been able to find anything so I’ve basically winged the way I play. The buttons that allow you to expend so many coins to expose letters are badly positioned because oftentimes I’ve inadvertently pressed a button that needlessly exposes letters before I’ve had an opportunity to play. Those buttons need to be positioned so that if they’re selected, it would definitely be intentional. Put them at the top!! And better explain all the rules of playing.
It’s Okay
by A23491 on 2020/05/22 15:47
Ok, so when I used it, it was fine! But the ads, they have false “x”s. And it’s just aggravating. And I don’t even press anything on my screen, but then it just randomly takes me to the App Store. If you want this, I recommend for you to either buy the “No Ads” or just play when not connected to Wi-Fi or something. Then maybe it won’t have ads. I would buy the “No Ads” but I don’t have any money on my iTunes. So just look at other reviews with the same problem, I guess. But other than that, it’s a good app with an ad after each game. Please, at least make it after every two games so there is less aggravation. 🥺
Inappropriate for children
by CarCol50 on 2020/02/13 11:24
Users should be aware that this ap allows ads that are HIGHLY inappropriate for children. This is so even though otherwise benign “bad” words are not allowed to play the game. Also, it is often impossible (probably by design) to close certain ads, even when the “x” appears. You may spend five minutes trying to close one ad. I have found you just have to exit the game altogether. Lastly, there are MANY common everyday words that are not accepted even though the game includes many words that are specialized jargon. Very inconsistent! It is clear that the game is either computer generated and/or designed by a non-native English-speaker.
Many missing words
by CharraJ on 2021/04/25 01:52
I know every puzzle can’t be perfect and you guys can’t remember every single word, but missing words that are just plural forms of words or words endings in -es already there should be easy to keep track of. I keep sending missing words, but it’s frustrating to not be about to get the points for them. As a player, I shouldn’t know more words than you do. Some levels I find 5-10 missing bonus words. Otherwise, it’s a good time-filler. Oh, and it’d be fun if you’d put a timer on the levels so I can beat myself.
Fun, addictive game
by Countrygal58 on 2019/11/18 13:34
Very fun addictive game. Ads are extremely intrusive. Otherwise would have been five stars. I understand having ads for free games, but 2 ads going and very loud and slow to X out. Update Changed my rating to 2 stars. Ads are getting worse. Trying to play tournament but have to keep rebooting because ads close my browser and one in peticular is just disgusting! Blood and guts everywhere? For what age are these ads appropriate? Deleted game. Horrible! Matchington Mansion is disgusting! Takes over your browser and prison breaks? A man holding himself trying to use the restroom? Poo flying everywhere? Once it comes up you have to reboot or it continues after each set! Would never ever purchase anything from this maker. Worst I have ever seen!
This game is amazing!
by Logan Noyea on 2020/05/16 11:35
This game is so fun and relaxing, and doesn't need any WiFi( like all the rest of my games). So when your going somewhere and you're nervous,you can play this game if it helps you calm down. It's an easy way to let your brain escape from all the worries and you can have so much fun doing it!! I love how you can also learn and find words that you didn't know where even created. Anyways, this game is so fun you should really really try it.
Quibbles
by Patty fisher on 2020/04/15 04:44
I really enjoy this and find it generally more challenging than other word games. But three things aggravate me 1. It gets redundant and often seems like I’m doing the same puzzle again numerous times. 2. Please move the buttons for help. I’ve lost count of the times I have accidentally hit one of those - usually the one that finished the puzzle - accidentally while my hand hovered near the grid. 3. Ads. I would upgrade to a premium version but I can’t see any opportunity to do so.

Retired English teacher opines
by GramGram39 on 2020/01/17 00:49
At 80 y.o. I was delighted to have a word game that might keep my neurons and synapses from rusting out. I like the competition with supposed other players. I do suspect that this game was built by a person who learned English as a second language. Obvious words are rejected and words I’ve never heard of in my life are accepted. But the challenge was worth it. And then tonight the watch-the-video-and-earn-a-clue function quit working. Not good. I tried restarting the game, even the iPad. No go. Any ideas?
Good Thinking Game
by leesaleigh on 2020/05/05 01:47
I enjoy this game as it keeps your mind active, I do have an issue with the credits that are supposed to come with watching ads. Sometimes when you want to watch an ad to gain coins for letters, it won’t allow a ad to come. I’ve tried different ways to get the ads and sometimes it will work if you hit the higher coin destination but a lot of the times it just won’t give you an ad to gain coins for letters which get disappointing. Besides that I really enjoy the game.
Update maybe??
by Leesha A on 2020/01/18 23:32
I absolutely love playing this because it really makes me think outside the box when it comes to words that I don’t use everyday. However, many times after you finish a level and it goes to an ad, the game freezes and you have to close it out and reboot it. It’s super annoying and I’m not sure if that’s a bug fix within the app or something else. Other than that I like the brain challenge this provides.
Read this is you are considering this game
by isla the alicorn on 2021/04/16 21:01
It is a good game but I would not recommend turning notifications on because it can be annoying sometimes and I know you might be having trouble on a level but I think that it is better to think then have the answers given to you by the app in notifications if they think you are struggling but other than that I love the game and I would recommend it to many people.
Daily puzzle frustrating
by Chloeg100 on 2020/01/25 15:22
It’s too frustrating .... it’s virtually impossible to acquire the three stars. There could be eight four letter words that start with the letter T. I get aggravated. I made it my goal to get the 500 coins for January, but when the coins are gone, I’m deleting ap. The ads are frustrating too. If I liked the game enough, I would pay for no ads. However, I’m not paying to be frustrated. Some of the words in puzzle are also archaic and wouldn’t even appear in a New York Times puzzle. IMHO.
Word Calm
by SOS1415 on 2020/01/11 19:48
I enjoy the game very much but am frustrated sometimes by ridiculous Definitions; also, when I get the message that I had already found a word when I hadn’t. They are referring to a similar word. Layer on, it gets accepted. I opened up this morning and had lost over 200 points overnight. I worked hard for them and don’t understand what happened. I did nothing to cause it. This would be a great game if it weren’t so frustrating, including words that don’t exist.
Should be updated
by Beachnut75 on 2020/11/03 11:02
I play this game frequently. So much so that I’m constantly annoyed with a issue. On a level where using a 3 letter word is not a option, it’s the banner that is used to repeatedly remind you. “ 3 lettered words are NOT allowed on the level!” Must it seriously sound like a petulant reminder? With capital letters and an exclamation mark as if we were being shouted at? Cut it out. It’s stupid. Sometimes your finger slips in your efforts and a 3 lettered word slips through.
Love it, miss it.
by GigglesOhPlenty on 2021/01/04 16:07
I have been playing Word Calm for several months and I'm on about level 730. This is my favorite game and I play it everyday. Since November 2020, it won't load up. I know there was an update sometime in November and I wonder if there's something that went wrong. I would really like to play this game again, but I don't want to start back on level one. Thanks, Teresa
Edison Add Glitch
by allthesenicknescantbetaken on 2021/05/31 19:33
I really like this game but I am about to quit playing it because of the Edison adds. The majority of time when the Edison Add comes on, it plays for a second or two and then goes black. I either have to wait about 20 minutes or longer to start playing the game again or turn on the phone and turn it back on. I don’t get the coins for watching since it turned off on its own. Very frustrating.
Fun Brain Stimulator
by nites on 2020/08/08 22:05
I enjoy playing word games to keep my mind sharp...this game provides enough of a challenge to support ample stimulation. I did go ahead and purchase the “Remove Ads” as they became redundant as well as annoying. The one turn-off is the obvious cheating that takes place...by copying from a “cheater - answer” website; which anyone can do to receive coins, but obviously no other benefit. In my opinion, really detracts from the positive premise of the game.
Love this game
by Rhandalea1969 on 2020/09/02 03:16
Love this game, definetly have no major complaints, it’s quite addicting to play, have had no issues with boards freezing up, the ads don’t even bother me, only thing wrong is my daily game is the same board every day, a cpl weeks now, hopefully someone is able to fix this for me, otherwise, no regrets downloading this game
Good game but ...
by Nana13131313131313 on 2020/05/28 15:34
Love the game, but there are TOO MANY FRIGGING ADS!!! An ad after every turn is aggravating as all get out. And some of them there’s no way to X out of, so I have to close the game and reopen it. That’s a pain. And getting the same damn€d ad turn after turn after turn is also aggravating! There needs to be a way to opt out of so many ads without paying $$$. How about spending some of the coins I’ve earned to opt out of ads? Jeepers.
Easy to hit wrong button
by rosiebu on 2021/02/21 20:12
Very frustrating.... There is an inapp purchase option of 280 coins for some of the letters to be revealed. But it is so easy to accidentally touch the button and whoosh.... coins are gone. There needs to be a “confirm” button so this won’t be accidentally activated. I am soooo tired of losing coins due to this. The game is ok but I do mot appreciate being taken advantage of. I have reported this several times and they say they will fix this but they apparently don’t mean it.
It’s Word Crossy under a different name.
by Captain Lillith on 2019/05/14 16:53
I downloaded this game because the ad I saw looked interesting. Unfortunately it would seem that this was one of those ads that has nothing to do with the actual gameplay. This game is exactly the same as Word Crossy—it even has all of the same sound effects except it penalizes you for some words that aren’t in the puzzle even though it tells you that you can get bonus words (words that aren’t in the puzzle) and presumably either get points or more likely once you get a certain number of bonus words you get a few coins as a reward.
Add issues
by Antowel on 2020/05/25 11:15
At least half of The ads have the sound on even if you’ve set the settings to sound off and are very loud . They offer fake coins for watching adds which can be used to purchase hints , at least 1/3 of the adds I watch don’t give coin at the end , I’ve reported it to the company and they said it’s cause I stop the add in the middle , which I do not , and they want me to screenshot the add that doesn’t pay but it’s multiple adds and I don’t know it won’t pay till it’s over so it won’t be getting fixed
Not your average time sink
by NastyMcCracken on 2019/10/14 20:41
This app has actually improved my vocabulary. It has brought words back to my daily writing and speaking that have been buried someplace in my 62 year old brain. It has also proven that English is certainly not any easier of a language than any other, well maybe Latin. It's definitely a five star app for me.
I Won
by jsgal20 on 2020/03/29 21:45
I clearly had one the last tournament that ended a little while ago! I was ahead by a few points when they tournament clock ended, and for just under 5 minutes the trophy showed won! However, suddenly my trophy showed #2 and I would like to know why? If that is the way you treat the players then I will be deleting the app! I also couldn’t even collect the coins for 2nd place! I should have received my 1000 coins, period! My nickname IS JSGal!
Annoying praise words
by rabbitears4 on 2019/09/14 07:31
Minor but annoying that some of the praise words for getting a right answer are just cut off on the voice speaking in the game. For instance, ”unbelievable” is cut off before the last syllable. Otherwise it's fun and as a 75ish senior, I like to keep my mind active. I have developed a great vocabulary over the years and loved doing compositions in school. Time just flies playing this game.
Love the game, hate when the x to get rid of ads doesn’t work
by F14Navy on 2020/07/12 10:45
You really should get in touch with whoever controls the ads, there are some that even after you suffer through the entire thing won’t let you get rid of them because the x doesn’t work. There is one in particular rated 18+ that will not go away, I actually have to reboot my iPad, very annoying.
Not so great
by suzgl57 on 2020/08/30 14:35
I have been playing for quite a while. Several times the Daily puzzle has been stuck on the same one....currently this last time it has been stuck for 3 weeks now. I have emailed them twice but nothing has been fixed. I had a reply from 1st email saying they would work on it. No response from 2nd email. I paid for this one so I don’t have to put up with ads. Save your money.
Love word calm!
by marryin1 on 2020/11/29 15:28
I’ve become so addicted to word calm calm, care of my my home & eating have become 2nd place. I’m almost 85, & started it thinking it would keep my mind sharp, like it was most of my younger life, like it always was, But it’s done more than that! It’s kept me entertained! I live alone & I need mental stimulation, more than TELEPHONES & TV, PARTCULARLY during this pandemic! Thank you wordcalm!
Enjoyable
by KimC725 on 2020/03/01 07:27
Since I had a stroke several years ago, I've been trying to find ways to get my brain working better & this game helps without aggravating me cause I can't process things like I used to. Thank you for creating something I can enjoy while exercising my brain.

I love this game so much that I want to play the next level right away. I do cheat sometimes because I do not know the word. It gets harder and harder but enjoy the challenge! It also gives you the definition which I like to know what the word means. Overall, fun if you like word games.
Words not in dictionary

It seems, especially while playing tournaments, that you invent words to run down the bank. When one is playing this without social media links or spending “money”/points, as many of us want to do, you cannot really build up a sustainable bank. The made up words are not useful except for the reasons stated above. If that is your goal, then please have site removed from “free” “non-WiFi” games. It is definitely false misleading information.

Interesting. Simple at first, becomes more challenging as more levels are completed. Ads, but by no means as intrusive as other games I have tried. I can handle a few seconds of ads. Other games I must sit through half a minute or more of ads. Give this a try if you like word games.
