Set your own goals
by Mskiracer on 2017/09/11 11:33
I like free apps, but have never been one to do games per se. This is an intellectual challenge so I love it!! I turn OFF all sounds so I can do it on planes, waiting for appontments, etc. Once you are into it you get only 9 moves to use all 25 letters. My goal is to see how many moves I can conserve and still solve the puzzle. My best was I solved in 4 moves. Those Q, J, X, V, and Z letters are SUPER hard to use. I also like to forego the easy words and go for 6 or more letters. This game is awesome! My two grandsons ages 6 & 8 also love it so much I had to get another version Word Jewels 2 they can play so I could keep my level (483) as it is a cumulative scoring system.

by sctyeahuknowme on 2017/04/23 03:50
This was fun but got much better when you expanded on the concept. I want to give it a higher rating but I have do that on the apps you built off this. This is kind of snoozer if you've used the newer versions.

My favorite word puzzle game!
by JBoyd333 on 2016/09/22 16:14
Love this game! Huge dictionary, 3-10 letter words, 9 turns to get them all, one chance to scramble, and you can restart at last level with only a slight penalty. My only complaint is the "Q's" --- they have a "u" built in, so you can't use words like "QAIT" that have no "u". It would be nice to be able to use them as Q's OR Qu's. Still 5 stars!
Fun and stimulating
by Jene3 on 2016/09/07 19:42
This us a great word game you can play by yourself. Stimulating but competitive only with yourself on your own schedule.

Love this app!
by Gcoco1955 on 2016/01/12 05:13
I've been playing this game for several years. It's fun and challenge without becoming monotonous. It's also help with my concentration disabilities from over 40 years of migraines. This is great practice for scrabble buffs. In addition, I value that boyhowdy is a small Mom and Pop company. So when there's a problem you get a real live, nice knowledgeable person to help you!

Like it but don't love it
by Nicole Hendricks on 2015/08/08 17:18
The game is very challenging. But having to start form 9 or 25 is like a slap in the face. After all you have done with the spelling then because of one bad round you have to start completely over is no fun.

by GRANDMA DARA on 2015/04/24 04:05
I really enjoy this game. However, there are some annoying quirks (it restarts to the first level for no reason; if you are unable to complete a level - no matter how far you've advance - it takes you to level 9 or 25.) If the issues are resolved, I would rate this 5 stars.

by Kingofsomewherehot on 2015/03/23 19:48
Game is fun to play but the math on points is totally inaccurate. I play mental math with the game and always add my points for each level. Sadly the amount of points I'm granted is not even close to the correct amount! This is the bug that should be fixed.

by Lynsatmoms on 2014/12/05 13:39
I love playing, but HATE when I can't make a word with one red jewel left, you LOSE your status and go BACK. Also hate that when I had a choice of level 9 or 20something, and a phone call interrupted, so it kicked me back to square ONE. Not a very fair decision from the creators of this game. Also, there are more often than not, all consonants and maybe one or two vowels...wth!? And only one shake? Really? Other than those b#%*hy reasons, I enjoy it, so I'm done with the review and have to get back to the game :)
Kinda boring

I wish there was better scorekeeping to keep me motivated from one game to the next, but overall a fun little game.
No probs, great game
by Leather15818 on 2014/06/16 05:31
I have really enjoyed playing this game. Sometimes when I hit an extra button after I lost a game, it defaults me to level one, but after I "lose" that game it allows me to go to the level I select. Passes the time well. Wish you could level up sooner.

If you enjoy games like Scrabble and such then you should really enjoy this game. Never the same combinations so it's always a new game. And you'll find that you keep getting better at finding new ways to make words. There's so many combinations
Not good enough
by BubbaJun on 2014/04/29 07:31
I liked this app in the beginning but I've found more than a few issues: 1. Almost have the words I look up don't have dict definitions 2. Some proper nouns (ie the name jane, vaguely famous ppl) are allowed while others are not (even if they are famous) 3. As above, some obscure abbrev. are permitted (ie WAP) while other well known ones (WTO) are not 4. "Qu" is two letters but counts as one 5. You are rated based on length of word but not complexity Overall, as others have noted, the game does get a little old over time. I'll probably find something more interesting

I absolutely love this game. I've played several other word games and I think that Word Jewels is the most challenging and fun. I'm constantly trying to better my score.
Boring and repetitive
by EmilyZ40 on 2014/04/01 03:26
I thought this game was fun, not much of a challenge though. And it DOES NOT let you continue the level you were on if the app is closed. Mine keeps making me start over at level 1, even when I haven't failed a level! It's really annoying because it's the same letters and combinations over and over again. Wish it was more diverse and less repetitive and it actually did let you pause where you were instead of starting over. I'm going to download the second version to see if that's any better
Great!
by Mil24Mil on 2014/03/18 21:32
Great! I just wish it would save your progress further than just level 25.

This game gets you thinking of words and strategizing how you can make a longer word and use all the letters that are hi-lighted And it's doable to achieve a high score and be able to move to the next level without paying for it or going on Facebook to ask your friends for extra time Ike some of the games do.

The ads are barely noticeable. Just at the bottom of the screen. They don't pop out in the middle while you are playing. The game is a lot of fun, I haven't come across any bate and switch in-app purchases that a lot of "free" apps tend to have. I like this a lot better than Bookworm. It has a similar concept, but Word Jewels is more relaxing. You can work at your own pace and it's fun to submit 6, 7 letter words.
Fun BUT needs UI improvements
by Max L's Mom on 2013/02/02 20:16
Don't tell me I can Shake if I have already used that option and cannot use it again. How about realistic numbers if certain letters? Three X's, Y's or Z's on one board is ridiculous. Don't start me at level one when I first turn on app. Give me a choice if which level to start like you do at other times. Takes too long on the scoreboard before I can start next round.
Frustrated.

by CampbellDad314 on 2012/05/24 07:43
I'm what you would call an app game addict.. I try out 100's of games and cool apps for my I-phone and this is by far my favorite.. I have to drive my wife around town from work to the stores to the bank(everywhere) so while I wait I play, when it's time to go I lock the phone and drive off.. I love this game for the simple reason that it's all about ME, ME using my brain on MY OWN time table. Sometimes a round takes me a day or two, sometimes it takes me 5 minutes.. I highly recommend this game to anyone of any age(my 8 yr old loves it too, it truly helps him with his spelling and word imagination ..enjoy all
Did it get easier?
by jinx135 on 2011/10/28 03:54
It seems to me the new version is much easier than before--I am still going at levels 30+ Not as challenging! I do like the ability to accept your word. Before I sometimes missed a letter or had to be careful not to lift my finger if I was not sure. amending: this definitely got much easier and its no longer as much fun :( I am now at level 40 and its just no challenge anymore :((( In the old version I rarely got higher than level 30, but that was the incentive to try harder! This was my favorite game before...I am hoping you can perhaps provide different levels easy/challenging...
An awesome free game!

I find this game extremely relaxing because you can play against yourself with out the pressure of timed moves. However, what confuses me is that whenever I click on the game I am not sure which game I will be playing. It appears that I have a vertical and a horizontal game going and have no control over which I get. I also am at times confused when it accepts a word that doesn't seem to be a word to me and then rejects those that I know are real words. I would still strongly recommends this app.
Top Notch Word Game
by GCRIZIN on 2012/01/18 21:41
I am not one who submit reviews with regularity but this game is worth the time and praise. Simple to pick up the concept but always challenging, this game never gets dull. I have owned it for quite a while and never stop playing it. As an extra incentive to buy, I want to let all know that this developer never stops trying to improve and update elements of the game. It is definitely worthy of high praise and a diamond in the rough for word game enthusiasts.

I lone the game. The challenge to move up in the standings makes it addicting. Sometimes it takes me a few days to complete a game. It is nice that one can leave it and always return to where one left off. Only suggestion I would make is when a certain is reached the look could be changed to give it a little more interesting look. But, that is something minor.
I love it BUT
by rvpc on 2012/07/19 08:31
I love it but it could use a few changes. I hate how you earn points but lose everything after you lose 1 round - then you're forced to start at level 1 or level 9 again with zero points. That part kinda stings when you're on level 23 with 94,000+ points then you lose it all over one mess up. It's annoying. I hope the developers can change that. Maybe give us 3 rounds to mess up on before losing points and the level? Or allow ppl to start at the level they messed up on?
Word game lover's heaven
by Omsgadget on 2012/03/24 03:49
I love word games and it's great to have one you can play solo and get immediate results but you can still compete against the high scores of other players. It's a nice change to not have to wait for your opponent to play or go against a clock. I hate to put it down. Looking forward to an update that recognizes you don't have any moves left after a shake or a quit game option.
Boring and repetitive
by EmilyZ40 on 2014/04/01 03:26
I thought this game was fun, not much of a challenge though. And it DOES NOT let you continue the level you were on if the app is closed. Mine keeps making me start over at level 1, even when I haven't failed a level! It's really annoying because it's the same letters and combinations over and over again. Wish it was more diverse and less repetitive and it actually did let you pause where you were instead of starting over. I'm going to download the second version to see if that's any better
Best Boggle/Scramble game!
by mythicsagefire on 2012/05/03 18:54
This play-alone game starts easy and becomes harder with each level and challenges the player to think about the words they form & weigh pros & cons of playing all the turns versus leaving unused turns for points. It would be nice to see the word at the bottom as I'm forming it but it hasn't stopped me from having fun. Definitely worth paying money for!
Words
by Lynsatmoms on 2014/12/05 13:39
I love playing, but HATE when I can't make a word with one red jewel left, you LOSE your status and go BACK. Also hate that when I had a choice of level 9 or 20something, and a phone call interrupted, so it kicked me back to square ONE. Not a very fair decision from the creators of this game. Also, there are more often than not, all consonants and maybe one or two vowels...wth!? And only one shake? Really? Other than those b#%*hy reasons, I enjoy it, so I'm done with the review and have to get back to the game :)
Awesome in so many ways!
by kenjer on 2012/04/06 19:47
First of all, there's no time limit on this game, so it's more relaxing than other word games. You know how you get stressed and watch the time on other games... none of that here. You can also close the app mid-game and go back to the same game, which helps as you get better and better. My favorite word game right now, definitely.
Love this app!
by Gcoco1955 on 2016/01/12 05:13
I've been playing this game for several years. It's fun and challenge without becoming monotonous. It's also help with my concentration disabilities from over 40 years of migraines. This is great practice for scrabble buffs. In addition, I value that boyhowdy is a small Mom and Pop company. So when there's a problem you get a real live, nice knowledgeable person to help you!

What a great game. To be able to play a few levels at a time a d co E back later to continue your game is great. Would like to see level number appear when high scores are posted some players rate their accomplishment on levels beat rather than on points. Overall this is a fun entertaining game that my wife and I enjoy playing together.
So love it!
by nonicknametoday1 on 2012/04/24 01:31
Love this game! A few suggestions: allow player to purchase shakes from accumulated points. The new level 9/25 restart board helps alot but when I lose on level 85, it hurts to go all the way back to 25. Should have a 50 restart level too. Place seperate button for stats and stop showing between each and every level. Too lengthy.
My favorite word puzzle game!
by JBoyd333 on 2016/09/22 16:14
Love this game! Huge dictionary, 3-10 letter words, 9 turns to get them all, one chance to scramble, and you can restart at last level with only a slight penalty. My only complaint is the "Q's" --- they have a "u" built in, so you can't use words like "QAIT" that have no "u". It would be nice to be able to use them as Q's OR Qu's. Still 5 stars!
Great Word Game!
by Love, Love, Love Them! on 2013/03/24 12:34
This game gets you thinking of words and strategizing how you can make a longer word and use all the letters that are hi-lighted And it's doable to achieve a high score and be able to move to the next level without paying for it or going on Facebook to ask your friends for extra time Ike some of the games do.
Problem fixed!
by Jlo917m on 2011/09/14 03:40
I was just about to review this app and complain about the one thing that bothers me - the fact that I accidentally hit the "shake" button and it screws up my game - when I see that there is an update to fix it! Hooray! Great game - very addictive. I keep saying "one more level" and next thing I know, an hour has gone by.
Fun but...
by Delilahmused on 2012/06/12 06:56
About the 10th time the red box pops up telling you you only have one word left you've figured it out long ago (like the first time it pops up). By the 20th time it's totally irritating. Same with the warming about using a shake. Anyone who's smart enough to play the game is smart enough to know what happens when you have one turn left or use your shake. Otherwise it's very fun.
I'm Hooked!
by ScrabbleInMyBlood on 2011/07/10 23:12
Great game. It's one of the few ones that knows every word, even the obscure and "adult" ones. Keeps me occupied for more hours than I'd like to admit. Hard to imagine that such a quality game is free. I've paid for others that became uninteresting in short order. I strongly recommend it to anyone who's intrigued by words and strategy--it draws on both.
Simple and addictive
by XSurgeon on 2012/07/13 16:46
Ridiculously easy premise to pick up but the more you play, the more you realize that a bit of strategy and planning ahead can help tremendously. New features added with most recent update make the game better on more well rounded too! Stop reading this and install NOW!
Addictive
by ginny19590 on 2012/01/26 16:31
This has been one of the most addictive games. I like to say it keeps my mind tuned up. Lol. It's fun and the more u play the more words you can find. I recommend it for those who want to stay tuned up mentally. Excellent game for when you are wanting in line or for an appointment. Easy to start and stop and restart later. I love it.

by EPR1 on 2012/01/20 05:17
Really love this game. Would prefer they add something in settings so that you can elect to start at a level higher than 9, and can set whether or not you want to see a list of your words/scores after each level. This would speed up moving from one level to another.
No probs, great game
by Leather15818 on 2014/06/16 05:31
I have really enjoyed playing this game. Sometimes when I hit an extra button after I lost a game, it defaults me to level one, but after I "lose" that game it allows me to go to the level I select. Passes the time well. Wish you could level up sooner.
Challenging
by A71192 on 2012/05/10 01:41
I recently installed this game and while I had trouble the 1st couple of days, I received technical support right away and problem solved immediately. With that said, This game keeps me challenged. No waiting for another person to make a move and no need for Internet connection making it my #1 choice even over Words w/Friends!
Retired
by Zorro'sBFF on 2011/12/18 03:45
LOVE THE NEW VERSION......EXCEPT....Playing the game is not as fun....I think it's because there are fewer vowels, chances to make longer words, and some games I just have to QUIT...because all I can come up with using available letters are 3-4 letter words. AND THAT'S JUST NOT ME. Please help...... and take out all the games that have 4"z's" on one level. That's ridiculous!
Better When It Was Faster
by zest1001 on 2012/01/23 03:52
Good game, but I liked it better when the word entered disappeared immediately, so there was no pause to confirm the entry. When it was faster and you learned how it worked by playing it instead of being told, it was much more engaging. I felt motivated to try to outwit the game. I still play a lot, but not with as much zest.
Cool
by ThatGirl2012 on 2012/01/08 14:35
This app is pretty cool. If you like challenges, this word game gives you a run for your money. Sadly tho, my run has now ended on level 42 with a score of 200,200... :-( but all that really matters is I've successfully beat my parents!! Yessssss! Haha* this is a fun & slightly addictive app* my whole family plays it* Good job!
Addicting
by Landjami0609 on 2011/10/01 22:09
Great game, I enjoy it very much, but have 2 complaints - I wish you could bypass the score page once you complete a level and also the "level xx" scrolling screen. It takes forever. Also it looks like you can't go past level 36. It just tells you "game over" after you complete it. Annoying!
Jewel Junky
by Ou81two on 2012/06/01 13:17
This is a very addictive game and challenging as well in the higher levels. I agree as you move up every 10 or 15 levels the screen display should change color combinations to ad a little more interest to the look. All in all great game!
Word Jewels is addictive fun (and relaxing)
by alan gordon on 2012/04/02 21:00
I'm really hooked on this game. It's deceptively simple. It's easy to learn, but still presents a challenge. Play for a few minutes or a few hours - you'll have fun. I recommended Word Jewels to many friends and they all are enjoying it enormously.
Awesome free game
by Erock3742 on 2011/06/26 00:07
Not sure why this thing had gotten such bad reviews? While I would agree that the library might be off on a few words I look at this from a bang for buck standpoint. And for zero bucks you get maximum fun for the cost. Also a vocabulary game for kids!
Word Jewel
by Lisa_Stone on 2011/05/21 16:51
I love this game. It really makes me think. But I was a little disappointed. I had my highest game ever. I was left with KU to use. I can not go to next level because the game would not take my use of the proper noun KUWAIT it is no doubt that it is correct. Please check this out. I love this game and it is important for me to get to the next level! Thank you Lisa A
Mentally challenging
by Nettieo on 2012/04/30 16:53
Great free word game. Just two small complaints: the dictionary doesn't recognize many words once prefixes or suffixes are added and it takes quite a while to go from level to level because of the length of time spent loading level scores. But I keep coming back!
Word Jewels
by TwillDo on 2012/06/30 11:16
Great vocabulary builder, guesswork pays off. Addictive, but love it! Engaging, entertaining and educational. The YAWL dictionary is sometimes obtuse, but a lifesaver. I've feared "word death" several times, but with desperation jabbing it saved me. However, some "real words" don't work. Thanks for saving me from dreary, rainy hours.
Score doesn't add up
by Sharon Pikarski on 2012/06/24 05:10
I like the challenge and my daughter also added it to her iPhone and iPad, for the kids. But, several times now, I have noticed that the score does not calculate correctly. Just before writing this review, my score didn't change at all. I've been watching this and hope its going to be fixed soon.
Good to pass the time away
by Dooksmaster on 2012/03/02 00:15
Relaxing. I don't really keep track of scores just what level I get to, which can take a while if you only continue the play on and off. The ads don't bother me-I know when they're coming and can skip over them quickly
Fun BUT needs UI improvements
by Max L's Mom on 2013/02/02 20:16
Don't tell me I can Shake if I have already used that option and cannot use it again. How about realistic numbers if certain letters? Three X's, Y's or Z's on one board is ridiculous. Don't start me at level one when I first turn on app. Give me a choice if which level to start like you do at other times. Takes too long on the scoreboard before I can start next round.
