Pay to Win
by gamer23423 on 2021/02/23 23:43
Wow. This game is absolutely pay to win. Everything costs in game money. Even to view stats!! When you run out of on game money, which happens very soon, you basically can’t do anything. The matchmaking is horrible, when I started I was level 2 and I played with someone level 43. This game needs skill based match making. The events are absolutely horrible, I played and got 6th, and so was supposed to get a reward for placing. But then I did not get any reward, and my entry fee was wasted. There is also no free profile customization, I can’t even change the emoji of my profile to something actually decent. The only good things about this game is the team/clan system and the gameplay. I am yet to try out the team system but it looks good, and the game’s overall gameplay is quite nice. But other than that, the game is pretty under average.
Love Ruzzle

But the commercials are too long. Like being held hostage.

Fun game, but WAY too much advertisements
No Support
by godspeed ruzzle on 2021/02/17 19:07
I opened a support ticket because my team came in second in Team Play. We were not awarded any coins. The support response was canned and asked me to reboot my device- I doubt they even read my issue or would have known my device was not impacting our six member team. My ticket number is 882148- if any mods want to respond.
Game kicks you out
by K86Michelle on 2021/02/17 03:00
After I made a purchase the game repeatedly kicked me out while loading.
Update?
by JohnBinAZ on 2021/02/15 06:53
Why is it all of a sudden saying “you must contribute to your team” in team play? I played and won nearly 20 games last week
Still locks up
by Triple 502 on 2021/02/15 00:33
Still locks up occasionally.
App immediately closes
by Ilovemy2cats on 2021/02/15 00:20
Right after I bought some coins in the app, it wouldn’t open, so I shut down my phone, then I uninstalled and reinstalled the app, but every time I try to open the app, it immediately closes. Please fix the app.
GREAT ADDICTIVE and COMPETITIVE GAME! But..
by Pimptastik on 2021/02/14 14:22
Love this game! 2 things... First, I feel like there should be a “Qu” tile randomized in the game because the chances of making ANY good words with just a “Q” is slim to none. And second, wish that you were able to also play this offline and not only just offline but take turns against other people that are physically around you and play on the same word puzzle to compete amongst your friends to see who can get the most points and words! 💯💯💯
Love!
by neutronstar628 on 2021/02/13 19:36
Played for years. Not totally happy with some updates, but I still come back to it daily.
Not as good as it used to be
by Pissboy on 2021/02/12 22:58
Now we pay for tournaments? Not gonna happen.
Great Game
by joeydevs on 2021/02/12 09:02
Caught My mother playing this and asked what it was, it seems easy but it’s harder than it looks and really gets your brain going! Perfect for the morning!,, Love it although I still need some serious practice lol
Fun game!
by Lilsudie on 2021/02/12 02:42
This is such a fun game. Helps to keep my mind sharp. Never had a problem with the app.
Long time playing
by Sissy 5065 on 2021/02/10 18:49
Takes much longer to reach new levels
Great game!
by Game solver on 2021/02/09 23:22
I have been playing this game for so many years and I still love it! The only sad part is when you lose to an opponent you lose 30+ points. And if you win a game to an opponent you only gain 1 to 3 points! Crazy and frustrating at the same time!
Vungle
by Buksrus on 2021/02/09 21:51
Please stop using Vungle in your Ruzzle app. I took my new iPad to the Apple store to find out why my battery runs down so fast. It was something called Vungle, which is integrated into the Ruzzle app. Vungle runs continuously and never shuts off. You will never see it but the Apple store can detect it. Occasionally, it will show up on your Home Screen and it looks like a music podcast. You can’t delete it! Get rid of it please or at least tell us how to disable it! It’s sucking the life out of my battery on my iPad and my iPhone!
Totally addictive
by Cardaly on 2021/02/09 20:40
Just wish that you could choose to opt out from playing against people who use the cheats to win rather than their own skills. Taking away a star because it’s frustrating to play against cheaters.
My favorite game!
by Anic94 on 2021/02/09 19:18
I play this game every night before bed and I love it! I don’t think it will ever get old.

App issue
by Jkm114 on 2021/02/07 03:48
I downloaded this game and was looking forward to playing because it’s been awhile. Everytime I open the app it closes. I deleted it several times and it still isn’t working. Very frustrating please fix!!

Cheap Knockoff
by wordament lover on 2021/01/23 19:21
This game is a blatant knock off of wordament. It can’t even keep the score correctly. Makes the worst, most unbearable sounds when you make a wrong word. Fix these things, and it could be worth it.
It was ... Addictive and Fun
by palmConvert well almost on 2021/01/20 05:43
Started playing on a vacation with family and has turned into my favorite time waster :-) The above was my review YEARS ago. I’ve been a daily player for years. Single player still is good but Mag you destroyed team play. So disappointed ... in team play I was a consistent leader on my team. We’re a high Silver, low Gold group. For the last three weeks The only games offered to me in team play are way beyond my level, even when we drop back to Silver. For the last 3 to 4 weeks I’ve been beat down and watched my chips fall by the way side. My skill hasn’t diminished ... and the level we’re in hasn’t changed ... but it sure seems like the ranking system has. The single player matches seemed unfettered, but team play now just seems to be a money grab ... it’s no longer “fun” .. which is why I played it. Now the only way for me to win is to use power ups (which I never use to need) which is just a constant drain on my chips and gold. I’m not the only one here, my other team members have noticed and commented on it. I understand the need for a company to make money ... but such an obvious “change” in the game is disheartening, and frustrating. I get it, everything changes, including the apps I’ve got installed and the ones that I use.
RUZZLE
by Brainstorm 96 on 2021/01/19 04:54
Excellent game! Truly addictive! But don't kill it when we don't pay $2.99 to have the adds removed. Love this mind boggling game. Thank you for bringing such outstanding leisure and learning experience to players.🙏 Still one of the best! Didn't crash. Better once updated w/ the newest IOS version. Keep up the good work! Thank you.👍🏻
Crashing
by Janmk2 on 2021/01/19 02:20
The game keeps crashing and closing after it brings up the main game screen
Put too many adds!
by KayKilo on 2021/01/17 05:04
I loved this game when it first came out, now it seems like they put an add at the end of every game you play! I get they have to make their money but jeez! The adds are so long for the most irrelevant, stupid games. Then they try and hide the button to exit them or they make it right next to the link that leads you to download it!
Doesn’t work
by mino304 on 2021/01/10 06:27
Simply doesn’t work on my iPhone 12 pro. It won’t let me login thru Facebook or even create a new account
Adpocalypse
by god1212314 on 2021/01/08 17:44
Jesus Christ, this game is very addicting! But it is barely playable because every goddamn button you press pops an ad up and it’s unbearable! Please my god try to limit the ads and it would be a perfect game
Aggravations
by imgoing to deletethis game on 2021/01/05 22:33
I play on an I pad. Love the game, BUT, when I start a round with a friend or play in the tournaments an ad comes on and takes up all my time. Very aggravating!
Meh
by NaeemM08 on 2021/01/01 02:27
This game would’ve been an easy 5 stars but it is disgustingly plagued with ads. I cannot enjoy my time.
Great game for all ages and in different languages
by koockaï on 2020/12/28 05:42
Great mental entertainment! I like this game it has been almost 10 years and am still fun of it.Always challenging you and it happens that I adore challenges🥰
Sad to see Ruzzle trash itself.
by Hchwaz on 2020/12/27 20:13
I’ve played for years. I paid to have ads removed. I’ve been playing consistently on one team for ages and enjoying the weekly tournaments to sharpen my skills. I love the short one minute games. Now the weekly tournaments cost coins and I have no interest in the long, single opponent games. The team play has been impacted by the numbers of players leaving Ruzzle. Our team has discussed and decided to disband because none of us are enjoying the game since the last update.
iPhone 12 mini
by Blasorblasor on 2020/12/23 23:50
I have loved this game for years! Recently purchased the iPhone 12 mini and now the top of the screen is cut off so you can’t see the score. Would love it if this could get fixed!
Crashes
by Knetap on 2020/12/23 16:27
Crashes 10 seconds after starting the app. Totally useless on iPhone 7. This started after the latest update. Update Reinstalled the game and problem is gone. My account is also gone and customer support unable to recover it. Unable to recover the account using the Apple ID it was installed with. Problem solved by permanently deleting the game. Another update After sending probably 20 emails back and forth, the support was still totally clueless to reopen my account. Supplied Apple ID, associated email address, date of install, date of purchase the premium version, who I play with, etc. They want to know how many coins, ink and tokens I had. Unfortunately my bookkeeping got lost where I keep that on record and I lost my account.

The very best word game on the net
Great game, god awful app
by MDubb9 on 2020/12/17 20:58
Ruzzle is a great game. The only way it could be better is if a better company took it from Mag. The app is absolutely terrible. The game freezes and the app force quits; when swiping up it, it causes the phone to freeze for as long as 20 seconds (even after all other apps closed, clearing RAM and a hard phone reset); if you exit the app mid-game, the app resets when you go back, and all game progress is lost (this is new with the past update). The app clogs the CPUs performance so bad that even other apps run slow after swiping up from the bottom and switching (new bug as of the most recent update). Team play is absolutely terrible. If you bet max coins (100) and win, you get your original coins back but only 5 or 10 extra. If you lose, you lose 100 coins. Every opponents' accuracy and creativity is 95%; only the speed varies, and that is inaccurate. Total coins per opponent is out of whac too; I've lost to opponents with total coin payout of <200, but have handily won against opponents with a payout of 225, and all other stars were similar. If the app wants you to lose, you will lose regardless of how well you play. It seems as though the adds take a higher priority than actually fixing these bugs. It's been like this for years. Shame on you, Mag!
Advertisement free Ruzzle for $5.99 is a ripoff
by Nona561 on 2020/12/17 03:51
I spent $5.99 to play Ruzzle without advertisements. It’s a ripoff, I’m getting more ads than before, and, they’re longer.

Cheating in team game is now rampant!!
by DonGaudr on 2020/12/11 16:01
It's getting increasingly annoying to get to the higher scored third round of a team game and get blown away by the other player who is suddenly using little known words after displaying very little speed or skill in the first two rounds. They should have a report feature so they can fix what us non cheaters are saying. It's getting worse and is ruining a great game.
I like it now
by Velvetjml on 2020/12/11 03:10
I love the events now , the totalizer and tournaments. I wasn’t happy at first with the changes but now I love it .
Update
by hafdch52 on 2020/12/09 16:57
The new update is frustrating. I purchased the game but now it is nearly impossible to bank coins to play. Moving on to something else.
No More Cheating!
by Bigjs2020 on 2020/12/08 19:46
First and foremost, cheating was happening. The developers have fixed that now and it’s no longer an issue. Great job Ruzzle guys.
Awesome 😎
by yfgguug on 2020/11/29 16:38
I can play against my friends and mom even my dad
Room for improvement... or reboot
by Peteyoumans on 2020/11/23 21:22
I was so excited when I saw that they had made some changes in the game. Thought the update had some valid improvements. Then started playing the tournaments. I had over 11000 coins. Gone very quickly. Yes you can earn more, if you want to spend all day watching ads. You use to watch one ad per booster, so it was two ads per game. Now there are three boosters. You have to watch TEN!!! In order to have them for a single game. And most, but not all ads are longer. There are 35 seconds long. So you have to watch a total of 6 minutes of ads to play one game. I know you can play without the boosters but then you have less of a chance to win. I have played this for years and really love the game but it has stopped being fun. I still will play my friends and that is good. They keep saying that the appreciate the responses and well consider them, but after months there is no change. Love the game but they have messed it up badly.
Fun!!
by 123al123 on 2020/11/21 02:23
I love this word game. This is an entertaining game you can play solo, with friends, or others.
Fun distracting game that’s not ptw
by ShiFly on 2020/11/19 22:29
I have been playing for years and only recently purchased the add free version. It’s a fun game and well managed for the most part. There is an issue that just started yesterday with the totalizer challenge but I am sure they will fix it promptly.
Love this game!
by VBWD5 on 2020/11/17 19:03
Been playing this game for yearsss and I love it! ❤️ especially now with all the updates
Very limited vocabulary
by Kabvuto76 on 2020/11/15 11:14
A very fun game but only uses American dictionary, which makes it very limited to most words that one knows. (Quite frustrating). Most official words that we use in many Word games are rejected in ruzzle. I wrote them they can tell me how to change to another dictionary that uses official accepted words but...that didn't help either. I need to play many words that I know, two stars for now.
Inaccurate score keeping
by Harry&Sab on 2020/11/13 20:01
I have won the game, but my score reflected that I lost the game!! How can an App not be able to keep score?? It’s ridiculous!!!
Love it but...
by scubamoose on 2020/11/13 14:27
The game is fun but it is notoriously buggy. I’m used to as it I’ve been playing for years. I’m hooked , got it and I really enjoy team play. I’ve made friends from other countries and across the USA over the years. I do wish that we could see the bonus letters at the end of the round when we see what we’ve accomplished. That would be more fun. I do think they could improve on the tutorials and clarify a few things. Lots of ways to improve your scores in this game if you want to. I gave it a 4 due to the occasional bugs and lack of clarity in tutorials.That said I play it every day sometimes multiple times per day. I really enjoy this game. So yes I recommend it :-)

Developers ignore cheating
by Sachca03 on 2020/11/11 20:53
The new update further proves that the people at Ruzzle don’t care about their customers; they care about making more money. Their greed is endless! This used to be my favorite game and now it just causes frustration and irritation. I have been asking them for YEARS to do something about the cheating and they’ve done nothing! I’ve never played a game before where the developers and employees ask their customers to prove someone else is cheating. You have to send screenshots of all words and their words so they can determine if that person was cheating or not. Wouldn’t you think that they would have a way to do that without relying on another customer to help them with that? All they would have to do is add a 3rd party blocker to their app and voila! The cheating is taken out of the equation. Unfortunately, they refuse to do anything about it. They say “We do not tolerate cheating”, but they absolutely do because they do nothing about it. They have also added bots to the game. These are used to stay just ahead of you so you will use or buy coins to win the match. Welcome to the new Ruzzle where they protect the cheaters, screw over the people who play honestly and fairly and greed overrides integrity!!! Remember how much fun this game used to be? Not anymore...
Super fun!
by Tararizer88 on 2020/11/10 07:46
Even more addicting when you play against friends!!
Great way to kill time
by GhostGrrrL626 on 2020/11/10 06:10
And have fun. Still don’t know why many words aren’t usable. They need a way to add to their dictionary. Otherwise, all's fine and dandy
The “improvements” on this game leave a lot to be desired.
by Lisztian on 2020/11/10 01:45
Having to PAY to participate in tournaments? Seriously? Screw that. I stopped doing tournaments entirely because even if you’re the winner, you’ll have lost coins at the end of the week. I get the distinct feeling that the main goal of the game has changed from a game of word knowledge into a way for the developers to make as much money as possible. The earlier version was a LOT more fun.
Great mind expander!

Sharpens the mind
by Escents on 2020/11/09 12:07
Playing Ruzzle helps with paying attention to details. It sharpens the mind, reflex, and (finger) agility. I play this game when I’m stuck on an idea and need a release.
Fun!
by Swede_100 on 2020/11/09 08:09
Willing players are hard to find. Other than that, my favorite word game!
I used to love it.
by Spat home on 2020/11/09 05:20
I used to love playing this game. I’ve played it for 5 or more years. They changed it several months ago and now I hardly ever play it. Too much crap you have to go through to get extra helps. I’ve started to play a different but similar game. Hope they don’t screw up a good thing like Ruzzle has.
Great Game
by Allypad on 2020/11/09 01:09
Great game!! Yes, people do cheat (unfortunately) they are only cheating themselves so I don’t get it 🤷🏻‍♀️. You can tell they do and I just block them after that. I have several “friends” that I have been playing for years :)
Family Fun !!!

Long time player
by Elphaba59 on 2020/11/08 05:43
I’ve been playing this game for years. I love it. It helps me unwind when the day is over. It helps the time pass quickly when I need it to. It’s a great challenging mind game. I like playing other people.
Good game!
by MplsFlrnce on 2020/11/08 02:25
I really enjoy this game but I wish that they’d fix the sound issue (the sound is fuzzy) and that they’d add an option to play on your own with a longer (or no) time limit.
Love the game but not the company
by Dsadaka on 2020/11/07 14:50
I’ve been playing this game for years, however his latest update is designed to extract more money from he players. Before we could simply watch more ads for assistance in Team Play, but now we are practically forced to spend money if we want bonus words/time, which is necessary to win. They also reduced the number of coins earned when we watch ads and reduced the number of ads we could watch daily. This surprises me since they should be making most of their money from ad views, not from us.
Love, Love, Love❤️
by RoriEllis on 2020/11/05 22:18
Fast, fun, addictive, nice chat function for trash talking, fun achievement badges. Just love it. The new update is fast, flashy, and preeeettty💕 Now with Tournament play??? The ability to put together a killer team and dominate.....I will never get anything done.ever. again...
Too many ads
by NONE OF YOUR BUSINUS on 2020/11/05 03:40
An ad after every round is just far too disruptive and distracting to really enjoy the game. Deleted it after a couple days.
Happy!
by Lgh3 on 2020/11/04 11:49
Awesome game
I don’t like this game
by zacory3049 on 2020/11/02 15:53
This game is boring and hard
New version ruined it
by xftehb on 2020/11/02 15:28
Hate the new version. And after my last game, it said it was a draw and I would get my 100 coins back but I didn’t get them back and it showed up as a loss. 👎🏻👎🏻
Issues with latest updates.
by navset on 2020/11/02 02:36
I have purchased a pack to remove ads, but with the latest updates it started showing the ads even if the remove ads package is enabled.
Too many ads
by Hullo ping on 2020/10/31 02:11
There is an ad after every single game. So annoying . The long 30 second ads
Ruzzle
by MelMal2916 on 2020/10/30 15:27
No stars was not an option given Game concept is good. Fun when it works. Customer service nonexistent! I have had the paid game and the free game. Both options constantly send you on a never- ending loop of ads for other games.
I play every day!
by spyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyu on 2020/10/30 09:12
1. There are so many word games out there, and this is the one I keep coming back to. The game combines strategy, vocabulary, spelling, and speed. What I like most is the game is clean. It doesn’t have a lot of flashy, noisy things to distract. Plus it never crashes or freezes. I’ve been playing for many years now. I bought every upgrade I could (there aren’t many) because I want to support the developer so the game won’t ever go away. 2. All that said, I only play one on one games now. The tournaments are crazy expensive (Ruzzle money) and I no longer enjoy them. Plus the opponent matching seems skewed.
Took away ink/want only cash now!
by FlickU on 2020/10/27 00:34
The only way to get coins now is pay cash or be on a winning team in team play. And by the way, doing that change with no announcement of the difference. No longer fun.
Great!
by Pooky110 on 2020/10/26 22:34
Gives me something to do while I wait...for anything
No longer a fan
by MKakaPinecone on 2020/10/26 02:33
The game was great - played in tons and tons of tournaments but now you have to watch ads like crazy or spend money to play it beyond a couple times. Not worth it at all. Glad I won’t be wasting my winter sitting here playing this game anymore. Thanks Ruzzle for giving me more free time!
Used to really like it
by Dracalia on 2020/10/25 09:24
Strongly dislike the changes. All the extra clicking and menus take away from the simplicity of playing the game. This used to be a great go to when you only had under a minute. No longer. Now it feels like I’m spending almost as much time picking a version and collecting coins. Playing with the letters and making words is what I enjoyed doing. Dislike navigating through all the menus to get there. You had a good game and you wrecked it.
Stop the Cheating
by Catluvsgolf on 2020/10/24 18:52
I’m no genius, but I’m no dummy either. But when opponents are finding 2x the words, you know they are cheating.
Why do you make changes
by Benzie25 on 2020/10/24 16:39
Just updated. Terrible. Now you need coins to play in weekly tournaments. Bummer. I’ve played this for around 6 years. Even paid to take away adds. Now guess I will stop playing.
The only game I play!
by Synthini546 on 2020/10/23 12:59
Ruzzle is the only game I play now. I used to play other games but they have never held my interest for these many years I can’t even remember when I started playing Ruzzle. It’s fun and it has many new games and tournaments and just enjoy it. I haven’t paid for coins or anything, you can play this for free. I will likely be playing this in another 5-10 years it doesn’t change too much
Always fun!
by SuZ-Q2011 on 2020/10/22 21:42
Ruzzle always is a great stress reliever. When I’m playing, I’m focused on the fun and not the craziness going on in the world. I love words and have learned a lot of new ones playing Ruzzle. I’ve even made some good friends online by playing....one lives several states away and one lives in another country! We’ve kept in touch and have enjoyed learning a lot about each other through the years.
I’m in love

This is a game I’ve been playing for years. If I ever have an issue our contact support and they are very quick to reply. I have a lot of other games that come and go on my phone but this is one that I never quit playing. Play it every single day. Love it. My one complaint is that you win a lot of useless stuff but you never win coins. In order to play so many of the games they’re offering now you have to use coins. I am not going to spend my hard earned money to play a game that I purchased and I’ve been playing for years.I realize I need to make money but why not charge a yearly fee for the game and allow you to play rather than make you pay $9.99 every time you need to get a few coins.

Best game ever!
Ruzzle review
by Cruiser@53! on 2020/10/20 15:21
I LOVE this game! I’m captain of a team that usually is 1st in gold. I play singles also. That being said, the only and big negative I have of the game is the cheat apps! It’s not hard to spot a player or a team that uses the cheat apps, and it takes ALL the fun away! Can you get rid of those cheating apps? Thank you. From WERUZFORFUN
Loving the game
by grandmaters on 2020/10/20 08:05
Been playing for a long time!! Love it. Haven’t been able to play much over the Last couple years,but I hope I’m picking it up again!!! I actually use the game to help my little granddaughter to spell!! She thinks it’s great and learns at the same time!!
Pretty Lame
by VerbalCraftsman on 2020/10/19 21:04
This game is good, but not great. New games take too long to start. Team games seem sketchy at times. Since WordCrack got revamped (ruined) this might be one of the best options out there, but times seem pretty bleak for word game users.
Ridiculously addictive

Playing Ruzzle as my default mode 24 hours a day Still part of every day. It’s what you need for Covid-19 sanity.
Team Play is less enjoyable
by normanTHE great on 2020/10/19 18:57
I’m a long time player. I love the game. My enjoyment however is going down, do to what I call sandbagging in team play. There needs to be a better way to match abilities, or to handicap those abilities as in golf, so that everybody can enjoy their outing, so to speak.
Good game
by Piolin757 on 2020/10/18 20:09
Is a good game to entertain you, however they change the way you earn coins and chips. All for the money so the tournament was my stress reliever but I’m not buying coins or sit down to watch 5 ads so I can get one booster for free so I don’t play anymore the way I used too. I found another words game that I don’t have to worry about coins or chips. I still play this game with some friends just because I did pay for the game a few years ago.
Reviews are Bogus; Game Freezes with Ads to Get More Games
by GlennP on 2020/10/18 19:48
First, the reviews are pre-written. It takes tedious effort to delete all the words that the app writes in. Apple should not permit this and this tells you about the integrity of the game developers. The game itself, while it’s not selling is a good one. Shame on you!
Addicted

Easy, relaxing , fun game!
Trouble reinstalling
by upset423 on 2020/10/14 20:09
I couldn’t use my avatars the app said delete the app and reinstall. I couldn’t remember my password so asked several times for a new one it sent one and immediately told me it was incorrect so now I give up and won’t try again I have deleted and reinstalled the app twice to no avail. Very disappointed as there is nothing more I can do.
Fun But Occasionally Aggravating
by Raise your standards on 2019/04/07 13:50
Ruzzle is the most fun word game around. However, it is aggravating at times. Sometimes, when you’re given a random opponent, or a choice of three, either they all three have much higher levels and skill than you, or they somehow keep beating you no matter how good you are and how low their level. This tends to happen after I either have a ton of coins or am on a long winning streak, leading me to believe the game is rigged. The other thing is that oftentimes, during team play, there will be one or two teams at #1 and #2 spots with high four-digit or even five-digit scores, while all other teams have scored so low that it’s practically impossible to catch up. And this happens on the first day or two of the tournament. It doesn’t seem possible anyone can get that great of a lead, especially when everyone on your team is playing, you have a full team, and everyone on your team is playing every day.
Great stress reliever 💃🏾😂
by Pennsydiva on 2018/10/28 07:35
I’ve been playing this game for yeeeeaaars! I ❤️ this game! I read some of the negative posts & even I’m sorry that some are unhappy with Ruzzle especially thinking the app is designed in a way to cheat... I’ve made a few genuine Ruzzle friends, some were even relatives of each other! I have learned over the years how to earn the ink, so I haven’t spent money since I paid years ago to get rid of the ads & my first purchase of ink & I don’t even remember how much that was 🤷🏾‍♀️ the only thing I need help with just started recently: the free help I earn daily that I save to use during my team play, the videos are taking much longer to play. At first I thought it was my phone, but after I hit one of them 4 times in a row for the first time & realized it used up all my free ones & still had to use my ink for 100 & this has happened several times within the past 2 weeks. And a few times it’s happened with my ink too... 😕 So I’m like ok, time to notify my Ruzzle fam 😂😂 because I’ve never had a customer service issue with you guys, nor have my Ruzzle friends that I’ve referred to y’all when they’ve had questions or issues! Let me know if I need to email 📧 ☺️
Not a quality or fun game anymore.....
by Roseless Thorn on 2018/04/24 17:36
This is my second review. First one is listed last. I enjoyed playing this game but the crap you have to put up with is NOT WORTH IT. While playing, the letters hesitate as you play so your score suffers, plus...I've been playing a long time and I have stats built up in the game and in the tournament. Then suddenly I was locked out of the tournament..could not play it anymore. Then I sent two messages to Ruzzel for help and no help. So For some reason I had to re-enter my email to sign in and the response was INVALID EMAIL. NO record of my email either that I've used for all of my games. Then said I had to establish new account ..so I tried but they changed my user name and password to one I didn't create. When I finally logged into this new account there was no evidence of me, or any past record of my longggg time playing stats. No decent customer service...if they had a good customer service to fix the first problem I would have given 5 stars. Obviously customers are NOT important to the, they have my money so to hell with me. .... This is my First Review. The new version is slow..touch is delayed...you touch a letter and in a second or so it registers. You can get any speed or accuracy with this fault. No fun anymore !! I have deleted it. Let us ALL know on FB when you have fixed the problems and it works and is fun to play again.
Ruzzle
by Badscat on 2018/06/01 22:58
Newest update to free game after privacy agreement is awful and the game is no longer fun. My new phone freezes in the game repeatedly. Because the ads are too numerous and you are forced to hit them because they cover the play button, the game is no longer fun. There are double ads and for no reason you are taken to the web or to the App Store due to an ad or seemingly nothing. Have played a lot but will be stopping when my patience with all of this is done. I hope the developer will stop this because the only reason to play a game is for fun. The barrage of constant ads whenever you do anything is not fun. And I’m sure I am not the only one feeling this way. Your profits will ultimately suffer because people may not come back after they leave. Favorite game but what is with the long time with the logo that started tonight? Then the game is sped up and uncomfortable to play. What time was updated? It's not working. I can see the logo just fine on the Ruzzle screen. Also, I was knocked out of the game due to a call. It said to tap to return to the game. When I did, it said that the game was over due to cheating. What? So at 11 words the game ended. This has happened before after a call. I don't even know how to cheat with game, nor do I need or want to. This needs to be corrected.
Developers ignore cheating
by Sachca03 on 2020/11/11 20:53
The new update further proves that the people at Ruzzle don’t care about their customers; they care about making more money. Their greed is endless! This used to be my favorite game and now it just causes frustration and irritation. I have been asking them for YEARS to do something about the cheating and they’ve done nothing! I’ve never played a game before where the developers and employees ask their customers to prove someone else is cheating. You have to send screenshots of all words and their words so they can determine if that person was cheating or not. Wouldn’t you think that they would have a way to do that without relying on another customer to help them with that? All they would have to do is add a 3rd party blocker to their app and voila! The cheating is taken out of the equation. Unfortunately, they refuse to do anything about it. They say “We do not tolerate cheating”, but they absolutely do because they do nothing about it. They have also added bots to the game. These are used to stay just ahead of you so you will use or buy coins to win the match. Welcome to the new Ruzzle where they protect the cheaters, screw over the people who play honestly and fairly and greed overrides integrity!!! Remember how much fun this game used to be? Not anymore...
Great game, god awful app
by MDubb9 on 2020/12/17 20:58
Ruzzle is a great game. The only way it could be better is if a better company took it from Mag. The app is absolutely terrible. The game freezes and the app force quits; when swiping up it, it causes the phone to freeze for as long as 20 seconds (even after all other apps closed, clearing RAM and a hard phone reset); if you exit the app mid-game, the app resets when you go back, and all game progress is lost (this is new with the past update). The app clogs the CPUs performance so bad that even other apps run slow after swiping up from the bottom and switching (new bug as of the most recent update). Team play is absolutely terrible. If you bet max coins (100) and win, you get your original coins back but only 5 or 10 extra. If you lose, you lose 100 coins. Every opponents' accuracy and creativity is 95%; only the speed varies, and that is inaccurate. Total coins per opponent is out of whac too; I've lost to opponents with total coin payout of <200, but have handily won against opponents with a payout of 225, and all other stars were similar. If the app wants you to lose, you will lose regardless of how well you play. It seems as though the adds take a higher priority than actually fixing these bugs. It's been like this for years. Shame on you, Mag!
It was ... Addictive and Fun
by palmConvert well almost on 2021/01/20 05:43
Started playing on a vacation with family and has turned into my favorite time waster :-) The above was my review YEARS ago. I’ve been a daily player for years. Single player still is good but Mag you destroyed team play. So disappointed ... in team play I was a consistent leader on my team. We’re a high Silver, low Gold group. For the last three weeks The only games offered to me in team play are way beyond my level, even when we drop back to Silver. For the last 3 to 4 weeks I’ve been beat down and watched my chips fall by the way side. My skill hasn’t diminished ... and the level we’re in hasn’t changed ... but it sure seems like the ranking system has. The single player matches seemed unfettered, but team play now just seems to be a money grab ... it’s no longer “fun” .. which is why I played it. Now the only way for me to win is to use power ups (which I never use to need) which is just a constant drain on my chips and gold. I’m not the only one here, my other team members have noticed and commented on it. I understand the need for a company to make money ... but such an obvious “change” in the game is disheartening, and frustrating. I get it, everything changes, including the apps I’ve got installed and the ones that I use.
Not as enjoyable as before
by |AB| on 2020/08/08 01:35
I came to Ruzzle on the recommendation of a reviewer for Word Crack (Mix 2) after that game drastically changed (for the worse). Once I got used to the differences, I found it to be a good substitute and a satisfactory way to scratch my word puzzle itch. But after the recent change, I find it just isn’t quite as good anymore. Previously, when you challenged a random opponent, you were able to play first and then wait for someone to join the game; now you have to wait for them to play first. And when you are playing a round, there is no longer a pause button, which is extremely inconvenient. Sometimes you need to step away for a moment—go to the bathroom, answer the phone, etc.—and being able to suspend the gameplay until you could return was nice. And somehow, I just don’t seem to do as well in terms of both the number of words I find and the total score I achieve as I used to, and I’m not sure why that is. I have severely curtailed my playing of this game, and I may end up nixing it right alongside Word Crack. (Why can’t anyone stick with a nice, simple, straight-forward word puzzle game?)

This is the best game ever!!! I bake cakes and I have a lot to do on a daily basis and it is overwhelming. This is the best game to put all of your stress away and just play your phone. Let me also add I own the bakery and it is stressful because I am the only one working in there except for my cashier... so when I go home I am so worried about tomorrow’s order and I just have anxiety really bad and it helps!! I also have a new born and a 3 year old that I have to take care of!!! My newborn is always breastfeeding so it is painful and when I am in pain I usually get on the game and just relax. My husband is a lawyer and we have a 3 story house that is always spotless so I am always on my feet before I lay my head on my pillow and try to go to sleep... I have the house all cleaned but sometimes that gets stressful and you have to take a break!!! So I play this game for a lot of reasons and let’s just say I have been playing this game for 5 years and it is amazing!!!!! I would never stop playing this game!!!! Thanks you to the developers!!!🙂🙂🙂
New Tournament Structure Unbalanced
by Bravofoxx on 2020/04/18 07:04
Paid for the app years ago... Great game. I typically have played several times a day. The new tournament structure is simply unbalanced. It needs to be less chips to play a round and give out less at the top (I am sure other tweaks would work as well). The game has effectively been made to where the folks spending money will always have a tremendous advantage over ones unwilling to take part in micro transactions. While this is standard nowadays, this is just a little too greedy in this instance. The game is in a spot where it is not enticing enough to spend money and the reward is too low to warrant watching Ads. I know that game developers need revenue, but you have to offer better value to the customer in this instance. And giving the folks forking out cash this heavy of an advantage just kind of ruins the previous skill or time needed to get the high scores in the previous version of the tournaments. I have tried to embrace the new structure, but after two tournaments, it just isn’t fun any longer (Tournament-wise). One-on-one matches are still great though!
Fun
by abgamereviewer on 2018/07/03 20:52
This game is just outright fun...having the best score out of three rounds with higher point levels each round always gives you that chance of winning......which is incredibly addicting....it also keeps players of high skill levels humble for even a very skilled player can occasionally have a lower scoring round. Its a very playable game with 0 errors or lag time given the gaming device that I use. It’s challenging enough to keep players coming back for more yet simple enough that all age groups can play. The controls are easy to learn. With the sound on the noises release joy(endorphins) every time a player scores high. You do not get punished for using 1 word more than once (being punished for that would probably make a lot of users leave) but you do hear a short off-key sound that alerts you of the repeated word. Colors are great and vibrant so is the app picture. It’s an exciting enough game to put up with ads.
Advertisement incentive based game
by OneOf8Billion on 2019/08/12 22:05
Been playing for a long time. It’s a nice interface with a few bugs they seem to sort out. Most bugs seem to revolve around advertisements that freeze the game. My big complaint as of late (and the reason for the low rating) is regarding tournament play. You are given random boards that vary quite a bit. If you choose to watch a couple adverts you can add 30 seconds and an extra triple word. This is important if you want to compete in the tournament. Here’s the rub - Recently they reduced the tournament boards to accept boards that contain extremely low word counts. Meaning that on one board I played had a total possible 16 words. In tournament play this board is useless. If you want to compete you need higher scoring boards. I’m assuming that marketing decided that if they expand this range you will be forced to play more games and watch more advertisements. I was willing to give up this time with a higher minimum, but if they want my eyes on their advertisers that badly they’ll need to compensate the viewer IMO. Thanks for the decade of word fun! Hopefully they can find a better formula.
Please stop score manipulation
by Nhbflex on 2019/06/12 22:58
I love ruzzle and have been playing for years. Lately, however, I've been frustrated with Ruzzle for a quite obvious score rigging. Team play is really great and I have a lot of fun, but can't help but feel "played". You play 3 rounds against another player. Results are immediate, clearly pitting you against someone who already played but still used to the same boards. When Ruzzle thinks you shouldn't be quite so comfortable if your winning you find yourself losing that game majorly. I always watch the replay so I can see how others find words. Soooo many times when watching the replay I can see the other person finding words and then suddenly the whole board will light up (like they suddenly found a huge word) and your opponent's score will double. This happens waaay too often to be true. Losing doesn't bother me at all, in fact I enjoy learning from other players. But it's hard to enjoy the game when you feel like your (more appropriately you OPPONENT'S) score is rigged. I'll keep checking back to see if this gets fixed.
Update game “store”, add levels, AND rotate
by JamieCate on 2020/04/22 13:58
1. My main wish for this game is that the board could be rotated during play. Not as a bonus, just standard (like Wordament). 2. Update the pretend store for things you get with coins. I’ve “bought” (with game coins) ALL of the options so now what? It’s silly to earn coins with nothing wise to save for. 3. It appears level 60 is the end? I’m not there yet but have yet to play or see anyone beyond that. Why stop at 60, and not have motivation to keep going? Other than that, this is a good game because you can play the 1to1 games and have a REAL match of words instead of all of the weird cheats (boosts) like in other games. Tournaments are not great because even though I do have the paid version, I am still forced to watch horrible ads to get +20 seconds and team help in the tournaments. (I hate that- I paid to avoid ads!) But if I don’t watch the ad/get the boost, it makes the playing not as fair since other players are using it. Because of this, I like the 1to1 games best and those games are the only reason I recommend.
HELP!!!
by Carly too on 2019/03/18 14:38
Team help recharging Team Help can only be used once then recharging we use to have at least 3 team help before recharging what happened??? Lost coins again with a game that ended in a draw. Says the coins will be returned BUT they weren’t. Love to see that fixed. Also Free Play does not always work. What about fixing some of the issues mentioned y me and others. I’m on a team where a player left the team & their 4000 points left too. I think points made while on a team should stay with the team no matter what. That’s why there is a need to update Ruzzle along with many other suggestions that you are receiving worthy of updating. Lost 100 coins 3 times once Free play didn’t work & twice froze in waiting mode. Also distribution of coins in both tournament & team play very unfair needs some updating so more rewarding to players. Exasperating. A little cheap with amount of coins given when Tournament is over. But overall enjoy playing all aspects of the game. Should have vacation hold so games are not lost because lack of playing time.

Customer service needs to step up!!
by BugMeSteph on 2017/11/15 03:09
Last update, photo of both Ipad app pic satisfied the developer that I had indeed paid. Thanks ruzzle...5 stars to 3. So you email them and absolutely NOTHING. Enjoy, but I can't use an app from a developer that feels just because they reply to a problem that somehow means they have given good customer service. Resolving an issue quickly is good customer service. Not just a polite email basically saying...you own the issue, prove it! Update to comments below... The developer is asking me to prove it with records from YEARS ago and take a snap shot to prove it...cause I must be a liar. I did one better...turned on the old pad and new one...showing both screens One with ad one without. Apparently the mentality of the developer and support is we are liars. Yep! Awe full. Shameful. They need to reevaluate how they handle such a small thing. I have been in touch with customer support. I recently got a new pad, replacing an identical pad and now I get pop up ads. I asked them to assist. I got double talk nonsense. My first review was 5 stars cause I love the game! I really do! I went to edit my old review with this ad issue. I edit. I exit. I went back to read it a few hours later...and my review slamming customer service was gone! POof! It is gone? Well I am thinking someone over their is holding back review complaints..just saying!! Great game unless you need assistance...then they want you to pay again too!
Fraud - don’t buy or download
by AK_John on 2018/01/17 23:44
Response to Developer: If my opponent uses a 20 second bonus, or solicits help from a teammate in order to beat me, then that is cheating, pure and simple. You say you are playing recorded games, so that means you have full knowledge that the recorded game has one or more 20 second bonuses, and/or help from a teammate. Therefore, you know that you are cheating. And the reason you are cheating is to get players like me to watch your videos or spend real money if we want any chance to win a league. If you can’t admit what you’re doing then either you’re in complete denial, or just flat out lying. Team play is a scam. The game leads you to believe you are playing against real opponents in real time, but you are not. The game then decides it will cheat against you, crediting your opponents with words that there is no way they could have come up with on their own. By doing this, the game makers force you to purchase more coins, or make you watch videos - if you want any chance of winning a match. Team play is a fraud, and not worth wasting time or money to play it.
Hate the latest update
by SuperKAG on 2020/06/29 23:26
Loyal Ruzzle fan and daily player for a few years now. I purchased the ad free version a while back. The latest update is a huge bummer. You have to use chips to play all aspects of the game except regular challenges. This wouldn't be the worst problem, except that you're often waiting hours, if not days to play the next round in a challenge. So in between challenges I like to play the tournaments or team play. But you're dropping 10 chips for every game you play. And even if you win, you're not really even breaking even, forcing you to purchase more chips. Because I've already paid for the full version, this makes me feel like I got duped. I understand the developers need to make money (how else would we even have this app?), but the whole thing seems really unbalanced now. I'm disappointed and I hope the folks at Ruzzle will make some adjustments in the near future or I won't be able to continue to play.
Watch a Video- DON'T GET A POWER UP!
by KatrinatheKat on 2018/05/20 04:14
I love Ruzzle and played the ad free version for years. I buy power ups (bonus time or points) but sometimes I watch a video to get the power up for free. Lately there have been videos that do not allow one to close the video without installing the game that was advertised. It happened today with Cube Cube-Mobile. My only options were to replay the video ad or install the app. I didn't want to do either and when I returned to the game, of course I didn't get the promised free bonus. I tried again and got the same result. It wasn't that there was a hidden X somewhere. I reported this to the support team last week. While the response was pretty quick and they did give me coins to use for the one of the bonuses I didn't get by watching the ad, I'm extremely mad that this has happened twice since then. They need to vet these advertisers. Love the game, hate the bait and switch. Update: Also I'm now seeing ads after almost every game. This should NEVER happen when you buy a game.
Lots of Fun
by piano4all2 on 2019/10/16 05:39
I've been playing Ruzzle just about every day for about 6 years now... I have the paid version which gets rid of those pesky ads...Well worth the couple of bucks... I've never had any issues with the app nor have I had any negative experiences with my opponents... I would recommend Ruzzle to anyone who enjoys word games while playing with an opponent or playing solo. A suggestion for those who have experienced hesitation with Ruzzle (or any game): Reset your phone, tablet or whatever you play on to factory settings -- of course make sure everything is backed up. This cleans out all of the miscellaneous junk that gets stored on your device from the internet. I reset all my gadgets to factory settings once every 6 months. Doing this maintenance keeps everything running smoothly.
Phenomenal for Word Lovers & Competitors
by Lontreal on 2018/06/08 16:45
The head-to-head word-finding competition of Ruzzle is the best app I’ve found of its kind, and I’ve played a lot of them! I played Boggle and the Boggle app for years and this takes that idea and perfects it. With individual, tournament and team play, it gives you a slight variety of ways to play and with slightly different formats that keep it interesting. The only things I would suggest to the developers are that they show users how many possible words were available in each game/board, that they track the lifetime average number of words found per game per user (to track your upward progress), and that they allow users to click on an unknown word and look it up in the dictionary (all features that Boggle does). Other than that, Bravo Ruzzle! Awesome game!
Great Game!
by Pilotony on 2018/05/26 18:18
Ruzzle is a fun, addictive and educational word game. You make words by connecting adjacent letters on a grid. It helps you learn new words (if you want to) by listing all the words you didn't catch during the game. Ruzzle is challenging on many levels. The game is timed and you choose to play another player or a robot; there's a weekly contest for high scorers who win coins to be used in the Ruzzle Store; and there are many game upgrades, holiday avatars, etc that are available and keep things interesting. I've played Ruzzle for at least 10 years and have, on a few occasions, contacted Customer Service. My experiences were all positive. The crew worked very hard to solve/explain each concern or problem I had, then offered ways to resolve/fix them. ⭐️Definitely a 5-Star Word Game ⭐️
Ruinous Jul2020 update stinks
by Hairytoes on 2020/10/03 19:29
Update: Watching round replay it is clear: After after the June-July fupkdate, Tournament Play recorded opponents use boosters at much higher rates than real players can afford. Opponent score suddenly starts jumping up around 59-second point, sometimes going for several more seconds past round’s normal 60 sec. When my coins stash is gone, so am I. The fupkdate did a bit of useful simplification (got rid of “ink”) but seemed mostly aimed at revenue enhancement by forcing use of power-up boosters that cost real $$ or require watching multiple video ads or filling out lame surveys. Removed free-to-play weekly events. I’ve been Ruzzle fan from beginning. Paid for no-ads, but didn’t mind watching a video once in a while to get team-play boosters. Much less fun, more frustrating than before. Now the same booster used to cost a single video-ad view now costs 4 video-ad views (15 coin x 4 to buy 50 point booster) when used to be 1. Four times the effort (or more if you can stand the surveys) of earlier major version. Worse, team-play simulated / recorded opponents now use boosters so often is nearly impossible to win rounds without buying boosters. Our team is demoralized, may disband. Having team-play recorded opponents using so many boosters might be based on the pre-crazy boosters economy, but not now. This is not really fair since it doesn’t reflect how much most players can afford to use boosters — much less than before.
New update is cash grab pure and simple
by An:onymous on 2020/05/13 21:58
I have loved this game for years. I play it daily and purchased the app long ago. Now like Rovio and every other greedy developer MAG has ruined the game with micro transaction nonsense. Do what you will with the free version, but for those of us who paid for the app, we now have to pay more or watch ads to have a fair chance in tournaments? Garbage. Total corporate greed. What happened to making something people like, getting paid for it and leaving it the F alone? Now Ruzzle looks like a slot machine in Vegas with all the super high contrast “attraction” animations trying to get you to click and spend money or watch ads. Tournaments are now an exercise in how much cash you’re willing to spend or time watching ads. You want more money, just charge a few bucks more for the paid version. Don’t screw your devoted players to make a few cents off of game tourists. Zero stars for the latest update. I hope MAG is satisfied when your dedicated user base abandons you.

I PAID for this app, so I would not see advertising, and with the expectation that people will not be able to use cheats. I am an above average player, but when there are people who are OBVIOUSLY cheating, you report them to the developers....who then do NOTHING. So in order to compete at some level, you would use boosters. You used to be able to just watch a video and you had about 7-8 free boosters; not anymore. You watch a video and you get about 30% of free boosters. Thus, the developer CHANGED the application requiring me to SPEND more money in order to be competitive. I am part of a team, and we are sick and tired of reporting abusers and seeing nothing happen. The developer has NO INCENTIVE to kick off cheaters as long as they make money. I say we abandon this game and find another AFTER we give the developer a chance to fix this debacle. We PAID for this... no more reduction in features or upwelling. Kick off the cheaters (you KNOW who they are).
Still very good, but used to be perfect
by Bidmanx on 2020/05/10 10:59
The new tournament system is a bummer. It used to be something you could play without worrying about chips or rewards. If you wanted extra time or an additional bonus tile, you could watch videos to acquire them, but to play the basic tournament version, you simply pushed start and played away. Now, there are three tournaments being played at all times and you have to earn coins to play them. I’m sure it’s just a gambit to make players watch more advertisements - at least that’s how it seems initially - but I miss the simplicity of the original tournament system. Fortunately, the head-to-head play does not appear to be affected, so the general game is still excellent.
Ruzzle update on iPhone
by Sharon 51 on 2020/08/08 12:23
Great great game that is addicting! Occasionally it gives the same game board for two games, n I wish I knew whether its better to play double word or double length, but overall a great game! I LOVE this game, and have been playing it for years! HOWEVER.... a warning to anyone doing an update of the app.... .... I was playing an old version of the app, which allowed me to play in a weekly tournament for free, and watch a couple videos to get free boosters for the weekly tournament. After updating the app (August 2020) I can no longer play in the weekly tournament for free, or get the boosters for free... I now have to use the black “R” coins EACH TIME I PLAY A GAME AND USE ANY BOOSTERS IN THE TOURNAMENT! I played the weekly tournament about 30-50 times a day.... obviously I can no longer do that now that I have to pay for each game and each booster. the update is a huge disappointment!
Mag reputation ruined
by Islelllll on 2020/05/16 16:57
I have been playing ruzzle for years and always rated it 5 stars. Mag has completely ruined a great game with the most recent upgrade. It’s obviously a move to generate more revenue by having players pay with coins for upgrades, or chips just to play! (Which of course you need to buy with real money). Even if this change had been planned for a long time, Mag released the upgrade at absolutely the WORST time possible. Millions of people have lost their jobs, and this company now wants loyal players to pay to play. The message they sent to the world is “ we don’t give a rip about what you are dealing with, we want to make more $$$”. The reputation of this company just got flushed down the toilet. What a STUPID move! What are the leaders of this company thinking??? Bring back the old Ruzzle! Listen to the voices of your customers ( every recent review trashes the upgrade). Admit you made a mistake before you lose ALL your customers!
Fun to play with family of all ages!
by Spffn on 2020/01/16 22:53
My mother, brother, son, and I all play Ruzzle together and have for several years. It has been great for interacting in a fun way. I enjoy being on a team with my family (although we have not been able to include my son on the Kindle yet). One thing that would truly make Ruzzle great is to have a built in dictionary. I would love it if we could select any of the words at the end of a round and see a simple definition/ possibly origin/ pronunciation. (Even to be able to save a word somewhere like in the app itself or Notes). This would take it from a quick way to pass some time to something educational and even useful. (We learn well when it is fun!)
Addicting
by mmobaby on 2018/07/25 08:11
I’m old school. I started playing Boggle against my mom in late 80’s so if you remember that game (trying to find words by the cubes that were touching in any direction) then this game is for you! Now you don’t need a pen and paper to write them down. Just swipe and you’re on your way. I’ve been playing this game now for almost ten years. Go at your own pace. Challenge random people. I quit playing tournaments a few years ago when they changed it, but when it was just you against 20 people, I won numerous times. One day I’ll try the team thing. Challenge random people because they give you people within your score range. Before you know it, you’ll be one of the best. Happy Gaming!
Can not afford to play this game now!
by rockinwiththedrummer on 2020/05/28 00:11
I've played this game every day for years. I loved the weekly tournament. If I needed stress relief and didn't want to wait for an opponent to play, I'd just keep trying to better my score in the Weekly Tournament. Now to play a round and to get the boosters, which you used to get enough for free each day to play two-three rounds with all boosters available, NOW YOU PAY FOR EVERYTHING! In the two weeks I've played the new version, I was given 4,000 coins and earned 760 for placing 1st in the tournament, and I have 38. That's only playing two to three rounds of the tournament each day with all boosters, and I missed two days. They want $40 for 5,000 coins! So if I only play two to three games in the tournament each day, you expect me to pay $80/month?!?! The developer has done lost his mind!! I won't be playing anything I have to pay more than a nominal amount for ONCE.
Great game
by RRayL on 2020/10/20 23:23
This is a game I’ve been playing for years. If I ever have an issue our contact support and they are very quick to reply. I have a lot of other games that come and go on my phone but this is one that I never quit playing. Play it every single day. Love it. My one complaint is that you win a lot of useless stuff but you never win coins. In order to play so many of the games they’re offering now you have to use coins. I am not going to spend my hard earned money to play a game that I purchased and I’ve been playing for years.I realize I need to make money but why not charge a yearly fee for the game and allow you to play rather than make you pay $9.99 every time you need to get a few coins.
Tournament play is now rigged
by nfarenga on 2019/08/19 13:15
I have been playing Ruzzle for years. I paid years ago to upgrade to no ads because I love this game. I have played in tournaments for years and have always been in the top or at the top. For the last few weeks the boards I’ve been given have never had a word count over 150 and usually have under 100. I ALWAYS had a daily score of over 2000 easily and even over 3000. For weeks I have not been able to get a score over 1000. Maybe I got a 1200. To literally go from years of daily scores over 2000 to struggling board after board to get 1000 is obvious of something rigged. When I play my friends the boards have over 200 words but never in tournaments anymore. I can understand random boards with under 100 words but board after board. Over 50 in a row!!! That’s just ridiculous. This is quickly going from my favorite game to so frustrating I’m considering uninstalling.
Many words are made up
by Amirrah on 2019/04/06 15:47
Too many words are completely made up and not found in any real dictionary. This gives players who have memorized the game an unfair advantage. To the point where real players will almost never win. Examples: AA, EA, ER, HA, AH, YA, EE, IO, HAA, YAH, ES, etc. I get that a lot of these are (wrongly) in the official Scrabble dictionary, but acronyms, Spanish words, some names (but not most, so it's impossible to guess) should not be allowed. Exclamations aren't super awful, but they add to the overall problem; you can win over and over again without finding or spelling a single real word. It's silly. Especially when 40+ 2- and 3- letter acronyms result in one player beating another who spent all her time spelling out 30+ real 5- and 6-letter words. All because the vowels had Triple Word bonuses. Enjoy, if it's your type of game, but I found it to be a waste of time. Once I learned the tricks and started to win more than half the time, it was boring.
Go back to the old game
by SS Hart on 2020/06/15 09:45
They changed the entire format of the game. I wouldn’t consider that an ‘update.’ I give it two stars because the original boggle-type play is still fun. But playing weekly tournaments were fun too, and now you can’t play without paying a lot of real cash or watching many, many (many!) full 30 SECOND ads. Their repetitive ads often stop animation at the 20 second mark, but you still have to stare at the screen for the full 30 seconds in order to earn the coins you need. (Yes, I did watch A LOT of ads before to earn boosters, but originally it was 1 ad = 1 booster. Now it’s about 4 ads = 1 booster. Ridiculous!) Personally, I don’t want to waste my life watching that many of the same ads or pay cash, but if I don’t, I can’t play at an equal level as my competitors... I’m very disappointed.
Abusive players
by SkaSk8er on 2017/09/03 14:48
I have played the free version of this game for several years now. I play for fun and to get better and faster, however in the last couple of weeks I have been accused of cheating by 2 different players one of which was JNET2014 who was very rude and abusive. After playing only 1 round of one game she quit and sent me an abusive message. First of all I lose more games than I win so that cheating app I've been accused of using must not be very good 😜. What's the point in cheating? I don't understand. Anyway, it used to be fun but apparently a crop of paranoid poor losers is taking over this app. I think I'll delete it and go back to Pogo where I can just play games against the computer. Computers aren't abusive and paranoid they just play and keep their mouths shut 😝 What's up with this site? Just read my review and that is totally not my screen name!
Love it but...
by BuddyLove42_ on 2018/11/26 13:01
I love this game, but I there are things that can make it really great. I think it would be fair to see if other players used boost in rounds during tournament play. for instance, along side the score for the round it could say, “Team play” and/or “20 seconds”, indicating it was used, perhaps with icons or something. This way it will be clear to players when they were used, or applied to determine scores (Not exactly sure how the tournament play works). It would help me size up my competition better! Additionally!!!... Do not let players pause and come back mid round, or at least pause, close the app and come back. I feel like too many people are using cheat apps. It would be great to eliminate cheaters!!! -Buddy Love🔥
TOO MANY CHEATERS!!
by Butter_IsBetter on 2020/03/28 09:37
When this app first came out years ago, it was FANTASTIC. Now, however, it’s not good at all and there’s no real challenge. 98% of the people that I’ve run into are using the cheat app. It makes no sense to me. Why even play a skilled word game if you’re going to use a cheat bot? These games are meant to exercise the brain. I’m upset that the developers of this game can’t find a way to stop these people from cheating. I have some real life friends that I’ve played the board game Scrabble with. These friends are not necessarily good spellers. However, I recently invited a couple of them to this game to get some exercise on their ABC’s, and they had scores that were phenomenal. I asked them how they could get so many large words in such a short time, but can’t spell a 5 letter word in regular Scrabble. That was when I learned of the cheat apps. So for those of you looking for honest competition and good word fun, you might want to look elsewhere, because this game is not fun when everyone is cheating. PS: If you’re not good with words, maybe you should play the game the right way. You might learn something. And if you’re not interested in learning how to spell, there are plenty games available that require no brains at all. 🤯🤯🤯
Team play frustrations
by zimmiesmom on 2019/09/04 06:47
I enjoy the collaboration of a team working together and competing against other teams and I enjoy the fast pace, completing all three rounds and getting immediate win or loss. The quick pace of team play has improved my skills for the standard ruzzle that I've enjoyed for years. BUT the team ruzzle has little to do with skill. The winner often has paid for their victory. I know this because I frequently view the replay and low and behold I was keeping pace, a little ahead, or I was clearly winning, then BAM! The opponent has decided that this will be their win so they use their cheat. It's like a football team that is unsuccessful in getting down field so they hire a pickup truck and machine guns! It has nothing to do with competition, skill, ability, speed. It's just a card up their sleeve. When I play I choose to use my unaided ability so I loose all the time. MADDENING!!!
It’s fun but...
by Projectoreo500 on 2019/10/27 15:23
I enjoy playing Ruzzle, especially with friends, I like to practice and play against other people and players, it’s fun, stress relieving and overall addicting, one problem I have with this is the ads, I know you guys need ads to help keep your app running, I get that, it’s just every once and a while I get the ads where it is impossible to 'X' out of without them bombarding you to download the pointless app that I don’t even need. Some of the apps don’t even have an X so I am stuck on a page and wherever I click something that I THINK will get me out of the page, the stupid notification to buy the app pops up. So other than that, the app is pretty good.
New week, same old problem - still unresolved issues after multiple attempts at customer support
by laflicka on 2018/11/12 02:27
*Edit: I actually came back to give this game even fewer stars. While playing the team tournament the game continues to crash on the third round. It has happened enough times that I stopped counting. I continue to email customer support, but they have yet to figure out the problem and I'm tired of the same back-and-forth with them, especially the last time when the said they needed screen shots, so I sent one and got back a snarky response. This used to be my go-to, every evening game. Now I'm just too irritated by it to play. This was one of my all-time favorite games, but since the update it crashes, freezes, won't open, and/or shows that I scored zero points in a round. It is seriously annoying. Please fix and I promise to come back and update to more stars.
Team Play Issues
by Rothe24 on 2017/11/21 05:51
There has been an issue with team play for a little while now. It happens when it’s about to switch over to the new week. You will be in the middle of a match and the 3rd round will end but it won’t count and it will essentially turn into a normal game, rather than team play. At the end of the round, it makes you replay it endlessly and you don’t get reimbursed for the coins that you used to use the power ups the first time around such as extra time or team help. Also, another glitch is that you will be in the top 3 of a league(Bronze or Silver) and it will tell you that you’re going back down to Bronze rather than moving you up like you should be. It does eventually correct itself after a bit.
Disappointed with most recent update
by Sad PLF on 2020/05/08 14:46
I have been happily playing this game for YEARS! I paid to have the ads removed a long time ago. However I do not mind watching them in order to gain advantages... I've even purchased a few things this way over the years. But this new idea of charging coins/chips for EVERYTHING is a horrible disappointment. I've always enjoyed the weekly tournaments but will no longer be playing them since you have to pay (even without any advantage). I also enjoy the team play, but now that I don't have my daily 100 free coins, I'm not sure I'll participate in that either. I'll keep playing against my Ruzzle friends, but you've lost me as a player on the rest of the games. It seems the only way to earn a decent amount of coins is to watch the daily advertisement over and over again...SAD.
Pay to Win
by gamer23423 on 2021/02/23 23:43
Wow. This game is absolutely pay to win. Everything costs in game money. Even to view stats!! When you run out of on game money, which happens very soon, you basically can’t do anything. The matchmaking is horrible, when I started I was level 2 and I played with someone level 43. This game needs skill based match making. The events are absolutely horrible, I played and got 6th, and so was supposed to get a reward for placing. But then I did not get any reward, and my entry fee was wasted. There is also no free profile customization, I can’t even change the emoji of my profile to something actually decent. The only good things about this game is the team/clan system and the gameplay. I am yet to try out the team system but it looks good, and the game’s overall gameplay is quite nice. But other than that, the game is pretty under average.
I play every day!
by spyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyu on 2020/10/30 09:12
1. There are so many word games out there, and this is the one I keep coming back to. The game combines strategy, vocabulary, spelling, and speed. What I like most is the game is clean. It doesn’t have a lot of flashy, noisy things to distract. Plus it never crashes or freezes. I’ve been playing for many years now. I bought every upgrade I could (there aren’t many) because I want to support the developer so the game won’t ever go away. 2. All that said, I only play one on one games now. The tournaments are crazy expensive (Ruzzle money) and I no longer enjoy them. Plus the opponent matching seems skewed.
What a shame!
by fishdavid81 on 2017/10/10 09:57
This game is a lot of fun except the team play is now allowing players to reset their ranks to beat others. It’s ridiculous that a person with a one ranking can score 50 words in one minute. The other players are cheating to get more coins. Also the puzzles they say are random are always crappy until you try fifty times. I hate that I paid for this crap and that I keep trying to play but it’s clearly far from fair and the developers should accurately rank players in team play. I’m disgusted with this app and will give it up for good this time. Best to never start playing this game because you want it to at least be fair and it’s not. How about the tournaments and team play all actually get the same puzzles. No way the scores would be out of place like they are or maybe the developers like to screw people over. They are great at it.
New update 👎👎
by Charluvsu2 on 2020/07/02 15:04
I’ve been playing Ruzzle for about 10 years. I bought the game to avoid the ads in between games. That’s not the issue. The issue is that I had gained coins throughout my time and Now with this latest updates, I am half way done with spending them just to get boosters. There is no way to win meaningful chips unless you play team play in the Gold division and win! Otherwise you can spend a week playing the team play, spend a lot of coins then win only 160 coins back if you end up on 4th place. Maybe this is the way it has always been, but I never noticed until now because my coins are almost depleted. Not very happy with this update. It is hard to earn coins. Once I am out of coins and chips I suppose I will quit playing.
Unfair play
by kayaker__ on 2020/04/07 03:57
Does anyone even play fairly on this game anymore? I have been playing for years and lately every single game I have played against another random player or the other opponents on the team plays have all clearly been using some type of Ruzzle Cheat to play all of the highest scored words and/or all of the words that are on board. There should be a way to make the game more honest and fair.. It’s not even fun to play it anymore when you have no fair chance at winning any games at all and end up loosing all of your chips to people who need to cheat to solve word puzzles. I mean, I have even played against some people where they would have normal scores in the first two rounds and then the on the final somehow end up with over 100 words and all of them being the highest scoring words on the board.
Ruined
by MrCoffee42 on 2020/05/13 08:18
This has been my favorite Boggle style game for a while. This latest update ruined it though. Devs? Are you all idiots? Just to start, I paid for ad free. In the store it confirms I paid for ad free. Yet you are now pushing me to get daily rewards by looking at ads! I wouldn’t mind if the button was just there, but you have to have pop up flags pushing me to look at it. I paid your fee so I don’t have to look at ads! If that wasn’t enough money for you, fine. Charge me more. But let me get rid of all the stinking ads. Stupid. And to change the currency, so now I have to pay for each game I play? What the hell? I guess I won’t do tournaments anymore, because I typically play dozens of games to get the best score I can. Not if you’re charging for every stupid round. Sheesh. Put it back the way it was. You broke the game.

No Support
by godspeed ruzzle on 2021/02/17 19:07
I opened a support ticket because my team came in second in Team Play. We were not awarded any coins. The support response was canned and asked me to reboot my device- I doubt they even read my issue or would have known my device was not impacting our six member team. My ticket number is 882148- if any mods want to respond.
Game kicks you out

After I made a purchase the game repeatedly kicked me out while loading.
Update?
by JohnBinAZ on 2021/02/15 06:53
Why is it all of a sudden saying “you must contribute to your team” in team play? I played and won nearly 20 games last week
Still locks up
by Triple 502 on 2021/02/15 00:33
Still locks up occasionally.
App immediately closes
by Ilovemy2cats on 2021/02/15 00:20
Right after I bought some coins in the app, it wouldn’t open, so I shut down my phone, then I uninstalled and reinstalled the app, but every time I try to open the app, it immediately closes. Please fix the app.
GREAT ADDICTIVE and COMPETITIVE GAME! But..
by Pimptastik on 2021/02/14 14:22
Love this game! 2 things... First, I feel like there should be a “Qu” tile randomized in the game because the chances of making ANY good words with just a “Q” is slim to none. And second, wish that you were able to also play this offline and not only just offline but take turns against other people that are physically around you and play on the same word puzzle to compete amongst your friends to see who can get the most points and words! 💯💯💯
Love!
by neutronstar628 on 2021/02/13 19:36
Played for years. Not totally happy with some updates, but I still come back to it daily.
Not as good as it used to be

Great Game

Caught My mother playing this and asked what it was, it seems easy but it’s harder than it looks and really gets your brain going! Perfect for the morning!,, Love it although I still need some serious practice lol
Fun game!

This is such a fun game. Helps to keep my mind sharp. Never had a problem with the app.
Long time playing

Takes much longer to reach new levels
Great game!
by Game solver on 2021/02/09 23:22
I have been playing this game for so many years and I still love it! The only sad part is when you lose to an opponent you lose 30+ points. And if you win a game to an opponent you only gain 1 to 3 points! Crazy and frustrating at the same time!
Vungle
by Buksrus on 2021/02/09 21:51
Please stop using Vungle in your Ruzzle app. I took my new iPad to the Apple store to find out why my battery runs down so fast. It was something called Vungle, which is integrated into the Ruzzle app. Vungle runs continuously and never shuts off. You will never see it but the Apple store can detect it. Occasionally, it will show up on your Home Screen and it looks like a music podcast. You can’t delete it! Get rid of it please or at least tell us how to disable it! It’s sucking the life out of my battery on my iPad and my iPhone!
Totally addictive
by Cardaly on 2021/02/09 20:40
Just wish that you could choose to opt out from playing against people who use the cheats to win rather than their own skills. Taking away a star because it’s frustrating to play against cheaters.
My favorite game!

Cheap Knockoff
by wordament lover on 2021/01/23 19:21
This game is a blatant knock off of wordament. It can’t even keep the score correctly. Makes the worst, most unbearable sounds when you make a wrong word. Fix these things, and it could be worth it.
It was ... Addictive and Fun
by palmConvert well almost on 2021/01/20 05:43
Started playing on a vacation with family and has turned into my favorite time waster :-) The above was my review YEARS ago. I’ve been a daily player for years. Single player still is good but Mag you destroyed team play. So disappointed ... in team play I was a consistent leader on my team. We’re a high Silver, low Gold group. For the last three weeks The only games offered to me in team play are way beyond my level, even when we drop back to Silver. For the last 3 to 4 weeks I’ve been beat down and watched my chips fall by the way side. My skill hasn’t diminished ... and the level we’re in hasn’t changed ... but it sure seems like the ranking system has. The single player matches seemed unfettered, but team play now just seems to be a money grab ... it’s no longer “fun” .. which is why I played it. Now the only way for me to win is to use power ups (which I never use to need) which is just a constant drain on my chips and gold. I’m not the only one here, my other team members have noticed and commented on it. I understand the need for a company to make money ... but such an obvious “change” in the game is disheartening, and frustrating. I get it, everything changes, including the apps I’ve got installed and the ones that I use.

Excellent game! Truly addictive! But don't kill it when we don't pay $2.99 to have the adds removed. Love this mind boggling game. Thank you for bringing such outstanding leisure and learning experience to players.🙏 Still one of the best! Didn't crash. Better once updated w/ the newest IOS version. Keep up the good work! Thank you.👍🏻
Crashing

The game keeps crashing and closing after it brings up the main game screen
Put too many adds!
by KayKilo on 2021/01/17 05:04
I loved this game when it first came out, now it seems like they put an add at the end of every game you play! I get they have to make their money but jeez! The adds are so long for the most irrelevant, stupid games. Then they try and hide the button to exit them or they make it right next to the link that leads you to download it!
Doesn’t work

Jesus Christ, this game is very addicting! But it is barely playable because every goddamn button you press pops an ad up and it’s unbearable! Please my god try to limit the ads and it would be a perfect game
Aggravations
by imgoing to deletethis game on 2021/01/05 22:33
I play on an I pad. Love the game, BUT, when I start a round with a friend or play in the tournaments an ad comes on and takes up all my time. Very aggravating!
Meh
by NaeemM08 on 2021/01/01 02:27
This game would’ve been an easy 5 stars but it is disgustingly plagued with ads. I cannot enjoy my time.
Great game for all ages and in different languages

Great mental entertainment! I like this game it has been almost 10 years and am still fun of it.Always challenging you and it happens that I adore challenges🥰
Sad to see Ruzzle trash itself.
by Hchwaz on 2020/12/27 20:13
I’ve played for years. I paid to have ads removed. I’ve been playing consistently on one team for ages and enjoying the weekly tournaments to sharpen my skills. I love the short one minute games. Now the weekly tournaments cost coins and I have no interest in the long, single opponent games. The team play has been impacted by the numbers of players leaving Ruzzle. Our team has discussed and decided to disband because none of us are enjoying the game since the last update.
iPhone 12 mini
by Blasorblasor on 2020/12/23 23:50
I have loved this game for years! Recently purchased the iPhone 12 mini and now the top of the screen is cut off so you can’t see the score. Would love it if this could get fixed!
Crashes
by Knetap on 2020/12/23 16:27
Crashes 10 seconds after starting the app. Totally useless on iPhone 7. This started after the latest update. Update Reinstalled the game and problem is gone. My account is also gone and customer support unable to recover it. Unable to recover the account using the Apple ID it was installed with. Problem solved by permanently deleting the game. Another update After sending probably 20 emails back and forth, the support was still totally clueless to reopen my account. Supplied Apple ID, associated email address, date of install, date of purchase the premium version, who I play with, etc. They want to know how many coins, ink and tokens I had. Unfortunately my bookkeeping got lost where I keep that on record and I lost my account.

Great game, god awful app
by MDubb9 on 2020/12/17 20:58
Ruzzle is a great game. The only way it could be better is if a better company took it from Mag. The app is absolutely terrible. The game freezes and the app force quits; when swiping up it, it causes the phone to freeze for as long as 20 seconds (even after all other apps closed, clearing RAM and a hard phone reset); if you exit the app mid-game, the app resets when you go back, and all game progress is lost (this is new with the past update). The app clogs the CPUs performance so bad that even other apps run slow after swiping up from the bottom and switching (new bug as of the most recent update). Team play is absolutely terrible. If you bet max coins (100) and win, you get your original coins back but only 5 or 10 extra. If you lose, you lose 100 coins. Every opponents' accuracy and creativity is 95%; only the speed varies, and that is inaccurate. Total coins per opponent is out of whac too; I've lost to opponents with total coin payout of <200, but have handily won against opponents with a payout of 225, and all other stars were similar. If the app wants you to lose, you will lose regardless of how well you play. It seems as though the adds take a higher priority than actually fixing these bugs. It's been like this for years. Shame on you, Mag!
Advertisement free Ruzzle for $5.99 is a ripoff
by Nona561 on 2020/12/17 03:51
I spent $5.99 to play Ruzzle without advertisements. It’s a ripoff, I’m getting more ads than before, and, they’re longer.

Cheating in team game is now rampant!!
by DonGaudr on 2020/12/11 16:01
It's getting increasingly annoying to get to the higher scored third round of a team game and get blown away by the other player who is suddenly using little known words after displaying very little speed or skill in the first two rounds. They should have a report feature so they can fix what us non cheaters are saying. It's getting worse and is ruining a great game.
I like it now
by Velvetjml on 2020/12/11 03:10
I love the events now , the totalizer and tournaments. I wasn’t happy at first with the changes but now I love it .
Update
by hafdch52 on 2020/12/09 16:57
The new update is frustrating. I purchased the game but now it is nearly impossible to bank coins to play. Moving on to something else.
No More Cheating!
by Bigjs2020 on 2020/12/08 19:46
First and foremost, cheating was happening. The developers have fixed that now and it’s no longer an issue. Great job Ruzzle guys.
Awesome 😎

Room for improvement... or reboot
by Peteyoumans on 2020/11/23 21:22
I was so excited when I saw that they had made some changes in the game. Thought the update had some valid improvements. Then started playing the tournaments. I had over 11000 coins. Gone very quickly. Yes you can earn more, if you want to spend all day watching ads. You use to watch one ad per booster, so it was two ads per game. Now there are three boosters. You have to watch TEN!!! In order to have them for a single game. And most, but not all ads are longer. There are 35 seconds long. So you have to watch a total of 6 minutes of ads to play one game. I know you can play without the boosters but then you have less of a chance to win. I have played this for years and really love the game but it has stopped being fun. I still will play my friends and that is good. They keep saying that the appreciate the responses and well consider them, but after months there is no change. Love the game but they have messed it up badly.
Fun!!
by 123al123 on 2020/11/21 02:23
I love this word game. This is an entertaining game you can play solo, with friends, or others.
Fun distracting game that’s not ptw
by ShiFly on 2020/11/19 22:29
I have been playing for years and only recently purchased the add free version. It’s a fun game and well managed for the most part. There is an issue that just started yesterday with the totalizer challenge but I am sure they will fix it promptly.
Love this game!

Been playing this game for yearsss and I love it! ❤️ especially now with all the updates
Very limited vocabulary
by Kabvuto76 on 2020/11/15 11:14
A very fun game but only uses American dictionary, which makes it very limited to most words that one knows. (Quite frustrating). Most official words that we use in many Word games are rejected in ruzzle. I wrote them they can tell me how to change to another dictionary that uses official accepted words but...that didn't help either. I need to play many words that I know, two stars for now.
Inaccurate score keeping
by Harry&Sab on 2020/11/13 20:01
I have won the game, but my score reflected that I lost the game!! How can an App not be able to keep score?? It’s ridiculous!!!
Love it but...
by scubamoose on 2020/11/13 14:27
The game is fun but it is notoriously buggy. I’m used to as it I’ve been playing for years. I’m hooked , got it and I really enjoy team play. I’ve made friends from other countries and across the USA over the years. I do wish that we could see the bonus letters at the end of the round when we see what we’ve accomplished. That would be more fun. I do think they could improve on the tutorials and clarify a few things. Lots of ways to improve your scores in this game if you want to. I gave it a 4 due to the occasional bugs and lack of clarity in tutorials.That said I play it every day sometimes multiple times per day. I really enjoy this game. So yes I recommend it :-)

Developers ignore cheating
by Sachca03 on 2020/11/11 20:53
The new update further proves that the people at Ruzzle don’t care about their customers; they care about making more money. Their greed is endless! This used to be my favorite game and now it just causes frustration and irritation. I have been asking them for YEARS to do something about the cheating and they’ve done nothing! I’ve never played a game before where the developers and employees ask their customers to prove someone else is cheating. You have to send screenshots of all words and their words so they can determine if that person was cheating or not. Wouldn’t you think that they would have a way to do that without relying on another customer to help them with that? All they would have to do is add a 3rd party blocker to their app and voila! The cheating is taken out of the equation. Unfortunately, they refuse to do anything about it. They say “We do not tolerate cheating”, but they absolutely do because they do nothing about it. They have also added bots to the game. These are used to stay just ahead of you so you will use or buy coins to win the match. Welcome to the new Ruzzle where they protect the cheaters, screw over the people who play honestly and fairly and greed overrides integrity!!! Remember how much fun this game used to be? Not anymore...
Super fun!
by Tararizer88 on 2020/11/10 07:46
Even more addicting when you play against friends!!
Great way to kill time
by GhostGrrrL626 on 2020/11/10 06:10
And have fun. Still don’t know why many words aren’t usable. They need a way to add to their dictionary. Otherwise, all's fine and dandy
The “improvements” on this game leave a lot to be desired.
by Lisztian on 2020/11/10 01:45
Having to PAY to participate in tournaments? Seriously? Screw that. I stopped doing tournaments entirely because even if you’re the winner, you’ll have lost coins at the end of the week. I get the distinct feeling that the main goal of the game has changed from a game of word knowledge into a way for the developers to make as much money as possible. The earlier version was a LOT more fun.

Sharpens the mind
by Escents on 2020/11/09 12:07
Playing Ruzzle helps with paying attention to details. It sharpens the mind, reflex, and (finger) agility. I play this game when I’m stuck on an idea and need a release.
Fun!

by Spat home on 2020/11/09 05:20
I used to love playing this game. I’ve played it for 5 or more years. They changed it several months ago and now I hardly ever play it. Too much crap you have to go through to get extra helps. I’ve started to play a different but similar game. Hope they don’t screw up a good thing like Ruzzle has.
Great Game
by Allypad on 2020/11/09 01:09
Great game!! Yes, people do cheat (unfortunately) they are only cheating themselves so I don’t get it 🤷🏻‍♀️. You can tell they do and I just block them after that. I have several “friends” that I have been playing for years :)

I really enjoy this game but I wish that they’d fix the sound issue (the sound is fuzzy) and that they’d add an option to play on your own with a longer (or no) time limit.
Love the game but not the company
by Dsadaka on 2020/11/07 14:50
I’ve been playing this game for years, however his latest update is designed to extract more money from he players. Before we could simply watch more ads for assistance in Team Play, but now we are practically forced to spend money if we want bonus words/time, which is necessary to win. They also reduced the number of coins earned when we watch ads and reduced the number of ads we could watch daily. This surprises me since they should be making most of their money from ad views, not from us.
Love, Love, Love❤️
by RoriEllis on 2020/11/05 22:18
Fast, fun, addictive, nice chat function for trash talking, fun achievement badges. Just love it. The new update is fast, flashy, and preeeettty💕 Now with Tournament play??? The ability to put together a killer team and dominate.....I will never get anything done.ever. again...
Too many ads
by NONE OF YOUR BUSINUS on 2020/11/05 03:40
An ad after every round is just far too disruptive and distracting to really enjoy the game. Deleted it after a couple days.

New version ruined it
by xftehb on 2020/11/02 15:28
Hate the new version. And after my last game, it said it was a draw and I would get my 100 coins back but I didn’t get them back and it showed up as a loss. 👎🏻👎🏻
Issues with latest updates.
by navset on 2020/11/02 02:36
I have purchased a pack to remove ads, but with the latest updates it started showing the ads even if the remove ads package is enabled.
Too many ads

by MelMal2916 on 2020/10/30 15:27
No stars was not an option given Game concept is good. Fun when it works. Customer service nonexistent! I have had the paid game and the free game. Both options constantly send you on a never- ending loop of ads for other games.
I play every day!
by spyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyu on 2020/10/30 09:12
1. There are so many word games out there, and this is the one I keep coming back to. The game combines strategy, vocabulary, spelling, and speed. What I like most is the game is clean. It doesn’t have a lot of flashy, noisy things to distract. Plus it never crashes or freezes. I’ve been playing for many years now. I bought every upgrade I could (there aren’t many) because I want to support the developer so the game won’t ever go away. 2. All that said, I only play one on one games now. The tournaments are crazy expensive (Ruzzle money) and I no longer enjoy them. Plus the opponent matching seems skewed.
Took away ink/want only cash now!
by FlickU on 2020/10/27 00:34
The only way to get coins now is pay cash or be on a winning team in team play. And by the way, doing that change with no announcement of the difference. No longer fun.
Great!

by MKakaPinecone on 2020/10/26 02:33
The game was great - played in tons and tons of tournaments but now you have to watch ads like crazy or spend money to play it beyond a couple times. Not worth it at all. Glad I won’t be wasting my winter sitting here playing this game anymore. Thanks Ruzzle for giving me more free time!
Used to really like it
by Dracalia on 2020/10/25 09:24
Strongly dislike the changes. All the extra clicking and menus take away from the simplicity of playing the game. This used to be a great go to when you only had under a minute. No longer. Now it feels like I’m spending almost as much time picking a version and collecting coins. Playing with the letters and making words is what I enjoyed doing. Dislike navigating through all the menus to get there. You had a good game and you wrecked it.
Stop the Cheating
by Catluvsgolf on 2020/10/24 18:52
I’m no genius, but I’m no dummy either. But when opponents are finding 2x the words, you know they are cheating.
Why do you make changes
by Benzie25 on 2020/10/24 16:39
Just updated. Terrible. Now you need coins to play in weekly tournaments. Bummer. I’ve played this for around 6 years. Even paid to take away adds. Now guess I will stop playing.
The only game I play!
by Synthini546 on 2020/10/23 12:59
Ruzzle is the only game I play now. I used to play other games but they have never held my interest for these many years I can’t even remember when I started playing Ruzzle. It’s fun and it has many new games and tournaments and just enjoy it. I haven’t paid for coins or anything, you can play this for free. I will likely be playing this in another 5-10 years it doesn’t change too much
Always fun!
by SuZ-Q2011 on 2020/10/22 21:42
Ruzzle always is a great stress reliever. When I’m playing, I’m focused on the fun and not the craziness going on in the world. I love words and have learned a lot of new ones playing Ruzzle. I’ve even made some good friends online by playing....one lives several states away and one lives in another country! We’ve kept in touch and have enjoyed learning a lot about each other through the years.

This is a game I’ve been playing for years. If I ever have an issue our contact support and they are very quick to reply. I have a lot of other games that come and go on my phone but this is one that I never quit playing. Play it every single day. Love it. My one complaint is that you win a lot of useless stuff but you never win coins. In order to play so many of the games they’re offering now you have to use coins. I am not going to spend my hard earned money to play a game that I purchased and I’ve been playing for years.I realize I need to make money but why not charge a yearly fee for the game and allow you to play rather than make you pay $9.99 every time you need to get a few coins.

I LOVE this game! I’m captain of a team that usually is 1st in gold. I play singles also. That being said, the only and big negative I have of the game is the cheat apps! It’s not hard to spot a player or a team that uses the cheat apps, and it takes ALL the fun away! Can you get rid of those cheating apps? Thank you. From WERUZFORFUN

Pretty Lame
by VerbalCraftsman on 2020/10/19 21:04
This game is good, but not great. New games take too long to start. Team games seem sketchy at times. Since WordCrack got revamped (ruined) this might be one of the best options out there, but times seem pretty bleak for word game users.
Ridiculously addictive

Team Play is less enjoyable
by normanTHE great on 2020/10/19 18:57
I’m a long time player. I love the game. My enjoyment however is going down, do to what I call sandbagging in team play. There needs to be a better way to match abilities, or to handicap those abilities as in golf, so that everybody can enjoy their outing, so to speak.
Good game
by Piolin757 on 2020/10/18 20:09
Is a good game to entertain you, however they change the way you earn coins and chips. All for the money so the tournament was my stress reliever but I’m not buying coins or sit down to watch 5 ads so I can get one booster for free so I don’t play anymore the way I used too. I found another words game that I don’t have to worry about coins or chips. I still play this game with some friends just because I did pay for the game a few years ago.
Reviews are Bogus; Game Freezes with Ads to Get More Games
by GlennP on 2020/10/18 19:48
First, the reviews are pre-written. It takes tedious effort to delete all the words that the app writes in. Apple should not permit this and this tells you about the integrity of the game developers. The game itself, while it’s not selling is a good one. Shame on you!

Trouble reinstalling
by upset423 on 2020/10/14 20:09
I couldn’t use my avatars the app said delete the app and reinstall. I couldn’t remember my password so asked several times for a new one it sent one and immediately told me it was incorrect so now I give up and won’t try again I have deleted and reinstalled the app twice to no avail. Very disappointed as there is nothing more I can do.
Fun But Occasionally Aggravating
by Raise your standards on 2019/04/07 13:50
Ruzzle is the most fun word game around. However, it is aggravating at times. Sometimes, when you’re given a random opponent, or a choice of three, either they all three have much higher levels and skill than you, or they somehow keep beating you no matter how good you are and how low their level. This tends to happen after I either have a ton of coins or am on a long winning streak, leading me to believe the game is rigged. The other thing is that oftentimes, during team play, there will be one or two teams at #1 and #2 spots with high four-digit or even five-digit scores, while all other teams have scored so low that it’s practically impossible to catch up. And this happens on the first day or two of the tournament. It doesn’t seem possible anyone can get that great of a lead, especially when everyone on your team is playing, you have a full team, and everyone on your team is playing every day.
Great stress reliever 💃🏾😂
by Pennsydiva on 2018/10/28 07:35
I’ve been playing this game for yeeeeaaars! I ❤️ this game! I read some of the negative posts & even I’m sorry that some are unhappy with Ruzzle especially thinking the app is designed in a way to cheat... I’ve made a few genuine Ruzzle friends, some were even relatives of each other! I have learned over the years how to earn the ink, so I haven’t spent money since I paid years ago to get rid of the ads & my first purchase of ink & I don’t even remember how much that was 🤷🏾‍♀️ the only thing I need help with just started recently: the free help I earn daily that I save to use during my team play, the videos are taking much longer to play. At first I thought it was my phone, but after I hit one of them 4 times in a row for the first time & realized it used up all my free ones & still had to use my ink for 100 & this has happened several times within the past 2 weeks. And a few times it’s happened with my ink too... 😕 So I’m like ok, time to notify my Ruzzle fam 😂😂 because I’ve never had a customer service issue with you guys, nor have my Ruzzle friends that I’ve referred to y’all when they’ve had questions or issues! Let me know if I need to email 📧 ☺️
Not a quality or fun game anymore.....
by Roseless Thorn on 2018/04/24 17:36
This is my second review. First one is listed last. I enjoyed playing this game but the crap you have to put up with is NOT WORTH IT. While playing, the letters hesitate as you play so your score suffers, plus...I've been playing a long time and I have stats built up in the game and in the tournament. Then suddenly I was locked out of the tournament..could not play it anymore. Then I sent two messages to Ruzzel for help and no help. So For some reason I had to re-enter my email to sign in and the response was INVALID EMAIL. NO record of my email either that I've used for all of my games. Then said I had to establish new account ..so I tried but they changed my user name and password to one I didn't create. When I finally logged into this new account there was no evidence of me, or any past record of my longggg time playing stats. No decent customer service...if they had a good customer service to fix the first problem I would have given 5 stars. Obviously customers are NOT important to the, they have my money so to hell with me. .... This is my First Review. The new version is slow..touch is delayed...you touch a letter and in a second or so it registers. You can get any speed or accuracy with this fault. No fun anymore !! I have deleted it. Let us ALL know on FB when you have fixed the problems and it works and is fun to play again.
Ruzzle
by Badscat on 2018/06/01 22:58
Newest update to free game after privacy agreement is awful and the game is no longer fun. My new phone freezes in the game repeatedly. Because the ads are too numerous and you are forced to hit them because they cover the play button, the game is no longer fun. There are double ads and for no reason you are taken to the web or to the App Store due to an ad or seemingly nothing. Have played a lot but will be stopping when my patience with all of this is done. I hope the developer will stop this because the only reason to play a game is for fun. The barrage of constant ads whenever you do anything is not fun. And I’m sure I am not the only one feeling this way. Your profits will ultimately suffer because people may not come back after they leave. Favorite game but what is with the long time with the logo that started tonight? Then the game is sped up and uncomfortable to play. What time was updated? It's not working. I can see the logo just fine on the Ruzzle screen. Also, I was knocked out of the game due to a call. It said to tap to return to the game. When I did, it said that the game was over due to cheating. What? So at 11 words the game ended. This has happened before after a call. I don't even know how to cheat with game, nor do I need or want to. This needs to be corrected.
Developers ignore cheating
by Sachca03 on 2020/11/11 20:53
The new update further proves that the people at Ruzzle don’t care about their customers; they care about making more money. Their greed is endless! This used to be my favorite game and now it just causes frustration and irritation. I have been asking them for YEARS to do something about the cheating and they’ve done nothing! I’ve never played a game before where the developers and employees ask their customers to prove someone else is cheating. You have to send screenshots of all words and their words so they can determine if that person was cheating or not. Wouldn’t you think that they would have a way to do that without relying on another customer to help them with that? All they would have to do is add a 3rd party blocker to their app and voila! The cheating is taken out of the equation. Unfortunately, they refuse to do anything about it. They say “We do not tolerate cheating”, but they absolutely do because they do nothing about it. They have also added bots to the game. These are used to stay just ahead of you so you will use or buy coins to win the match. Welcome to the new Ruzzle where they protect the cheaters, screw over the people who play honestly and fairly and greed overrides integrity!!! Remember how much fun this game used to be? Not anymore...
Great game, god awful app
by MDubb9 on 2020/12/17 20:58
Ruzzle is a great game. The only way it could be better is if a better company took it from Mag. The app is absolutely terrible. The game freezes and the app force quits; when swiping up it, it causes the phone to freeze for as long as 20 seconds (even after all other apps closed, clearing RAM and a hard phone reset); if you exit the app mid-game, the app resets when you go back, and all game progress is lost (this is new with the past update). The app clogs the CPUs performance so bad that even other apps run slow after swiping up from the bottom and switching (new bug as of the most recent update). Team play is absolutely terrible. If you bet max coins (100) and win, you get your original coins back but only 5 or 10 extra. If you lose, you lose 100 coins. Every opponents' accuracy and creativity is 95%; only the speed varies, and that is inaccurate. Total coins per opponent is out of whac too; I've lost to opponents with total coin payout of <200, but have handily won against opponents with a payout of 225, and all other stars were similar. If the app wants you to lose, you will lose regardless of how well you play. It seems as though the adds take a higher priority than actually fixing these bugs. It's been like this for years. Shame on you, Mag!
It was ... Addictive and Fun
by palmConvert well almost on 2021/01/20 05:43
Started playing on a vacation with family and has turned into my favorite time waster :-) The above was my review YEARS ago. I’ve been a daily player for years. Single player still is good but Mag you destroyed team play. So disappointed ... in team play I was a consistent leader on my team. We’re a high Silver, low Gold group. For the last three weeks The only games offered to me in team play are way beyond my level, even when we drop back to Silver. For the last 3 to 4 weeks I’ve been beat down and watched my chips fall by the way side. My skill hasn’t diminished ... and the level we’re in hasn’t changed ... but it sure seems like the ranking system has. The single player matches seemed unfettered, but team play now just seems to be a money grab ... it’s no longer “fun” .. which is why I played it. Now the only way for me to win is to use power ups (which I never use to need) which is just a constant drain on my chips and gold. I’m not the only one here, my other team members have noticed and commented on it. I understand the need for a company to make money ... but such an obvious “change” in the game is disheartening, and frustrating. I get it, everything changes, including the apps I’ve got installed and the ones that I use.
Not as enjoyable as before
by |AB| on 2020/08/08 01:35
I came to Ruzzle on the recommendation of a reviewer for Word Crack (Mix 2) after that game drastically changed (for the worse). Once I got used to the differences, I found it to be a good substitute and a satisfactory way to scratch my word puzzle itch. But after the recent change, I find it just isn’t quite as good anymore. Previously, when you challenged a random opponent, you were able to play first and then wait for someone to join the game; now you have to wait for them to play first. And when you are playing a round, there is no longer a pause button, which is extremely inconvenient. Sometimes you need to step away for a moment—go to the bathroom, answer the phone, etc.—and being able to suspend the gameplay until you could return was nice. And somehow, I just don’t seem to do as well in terms of both the number of words I find and the total score I achieve as I used to, and I’m not sure why that is. I have severely curtailed my playing of this game, and I may end up nixing it right alongside Word Crack. (Why can’t anyone stick with a nice, simple, straight-forward word puzzle game?)

This is the best game ever!!! I bake cakes and I have a lot to do on a daily basis and it is overwhelming. This is the best game to put all of your stress away and just play your phone. Let me also add I own the bakery and it is stressful because I am the only one working in there except for my cashier... so when I go home I am so worried about tomorrow’s order and I just have anxiety really bad and it helps!! I also have a new born and a 3 year old that I have to take care of!!! My newborn is always breastfeeding so it is painful and when I am in pain I usually get on the game and just relax. My husband is a lawyer and we have a 3 story house that is always spotless so I am always on my feet before I lay my head on my pillow and try to go to sleep... I have the house all cleaned but sometimes that gets stressful and you have to take a break!!! So I play this game for a lot of reasons and let’s just say I have been playing this game for 5 years and it is amazing!!!!! I would never stop playing this game!!!! Thanks you to the developers!!!🙂🙂🙂
New Tournament Structure Unbalanced
by Bravofoxx on 2020/04/18 07:04
Paid for the app years ago... Great game. I typically have played several times a day. The new tournament structure is simply unbalanced. It needs to be less chips to play a round and give out less at the top (I am sure other tweaks would work as well). The game has effectively been made to where the folks spending money will always have a tremendous advantage over ones unwilling to take part in micro transactions. While this is standard nowadays, this is just a little too greedy in this instance. The game is in a spot where it is not enticing enough to spend money and the reward is too low to warrant watching Ads. I know that game developers need revenue, but you have to offer better value to the customer in this instance. And giving the folks forking out cash this heavy of an advantage just kind of ruins the previous skill or time needed to get the high scores in the previous version of the tournaments. I have tried to embrace the new structure, but after two tournaments, it just isn’t fun any longer (Tournament-wise). One-on-one matches are still great though!
Fun
by abgamereviewer on 2018/07/03 20:52
This game is just outright fun...having the best score out of three rounds with higher point levels each round always gives you that chance of winning......which is incredibly addicting....it also keeps players of high skill levels humble for even a very skilled player can occasionally have a lower scoring round. Its a very playable game with 0 errors or lag time given the gaming device that I use. It’s challenging enough to keep players coming back for more yet simple enough that all age groups can play. The controls are easy to learn. With the sound on the noises release joy(endorphins) every time a player scores high. You do not get punished for using 1 word more than once (being punished for that would probably make a lot of users leave) but you do hear a short off-key sound that alerts you of the repeated word. Colors are great and vibrant so is the app picture. It’s an exciting enough game to put up with ads.
Advertisement incentive based game
by OneOf8Billion on 2019/08/12 22:05
Been playing for a long time. It’s a nice interface with a few bugs they seem to sort out. Most bugs seem to revolve around advertisements that freeze the game. My big complaint as of late (and the reason for the low rating) is regarding tournament play. You are given random boards that vary quite a bit. If you choose to watch a couple adverts you can add 30 seconds and an extra triple word. This is important if you want to compete in the tournament. Here’s the rub - Recently they reduced the tournament boards to accept boards that contain extremely low word counts. Meaning that on one board I played had a total possible 16 words. In tournament play this board is useless. If you want to compete you need higher scoring boards. I’m assuming that marketing decided that if they expand this range you will be forced to play more games and watch more advertisements. I was willing to give up this time with a higher minimum, but if they want my eyes on their advertisers that badly they’ll need to compensate the viewer IMO. Thanks for the decade of word fun! Hopefully they can find a better formula.
Please stop score manipulation
by Nhbflex on 2019/06/12 22:58
I love ruzzle and have been playing for years. Lately, however, I've been frustrated with Ruzzle for a quite obvious score rigging. Team play is really great and I have a lot of fun, but can't help but feel "played". You play 3 rounds against another player. Results are immediate, clearly pitting you against someone who already played but still used to the same boards. When Ruzzle thinks you shouldn't be quite so comfortable if your winning you find yourself losing that game majorly. I always watch the replay so I can see how others find words. Soooo many times when watching the replay I can see the other person finding words and then suddenly the whole board will light up (like they suddenly found a huge word) and your opponent's score will double. This happens waaay too often to be true. Losing doesn't bother me at all, in fact I enjoy learning from other players. But it's hard to enjoy the game when you feel like your (more appropriately you OPPONENT'S) score is rigged. I'll keep checking back to see if this gets fixed.
Update game “store”, add levels, AND rotate
by JamieCate on 2020/04/22 13:58
1. My main wish for this game is that the board could be rotated during play. Not as a bonus, just standard (like Wordament). 2. Update the pretend store for things you get with coins. I’ve “bought” (with game coins) ALL of the options so now what? It’s silly to earn coins with nothing wise to save for. 3. It appears level 60 is the end? I’m not there yet but have yet to play or see anyone beyond that. Why stop at 60, and not have motivation to keep going? Other than that, this is a good game because you can play the 1to1 games and have a REAL match of words instead of all of the weird cheats (boosts) like in other games. Tournaments are not great because even though I do have the paid version, I am still forced to watch horrible ads to get +20 seconds and team help in the tournaments. (I hate that- I paid to avoid ads!) But if I don’t watch the ad/get the boost, it makes the playing not as fair since other players are using it. Because of this, I like the 1to1 games best and those games are the only reason I recommend.
HELP!!!
by Carly too on 2019/03/18 14:38
Team help recharging Team Help can only be used once then recharging we use to have at least 3 team help before recharging what happened??? Lost coins again with a game that ended in a draw. Says the coins will be returned BUT they weren’t. Love to see that fixed. Also Free Play does not always work. What about fixing some of the issues mentioned y me and others. I’m on a team where a player left the team & their 4000 points left too. I think points made while on a team should stay with the team no matter what. That’s why there is a need to update Ruzzle along with many other suggestions that you are receiving worthy of updating. Lost 100 coins 3 times once Free play didn’t work & twice froze in waiting mode. Also distribution of coins in both tournament & team play very unfair needs some updating so more rewarding to players. Exasperating. A little cheap with amount of coins given when Tournament is over. But overall enjoy playing all aspects of the game. Should have vacation hold so games are not lost because lack of playing time.

Customer service needs to step up!!
by BugMeSteph on 2017/11/15 03:09
Last update, photo of both Ipad app pic satisfied the developer that I had indeed paid. Thanks ruzzle...5 stars to 3. So you email them and absolutely NOTHING. Enjoy, but I can't use an app from a developer that feels just because they reply to a problem that somehow means they have given good customer service. Resolving an issue quickly is good customer service. Not just a polite email basically saying...you own the issue, prove it! Update to comments below... The developer is asking me to prove it with records from YEARS ago and take a snap shot to prove it...cause I must be a liar. I did one better...turned on the old pad and new one...showing both screens One with ad one without. Apparently the mentality of the developer and support is we are liars. Yep! Awe full. Shameful. They need to reevaluate how they handle such a small thing. I have been in touch with customer support. I recently got a new pad, replacing an identical pad and now I get pop up ads. I asked them to assist. I got double talk nonsense. My first review was 5 stars cause I love the game! I really do! I went to edit my old review with this ad issue. I edit. I exit. I went back to read it a few hours later...and my review slamming customer service was gone! POof! It is gone? Well I am thinking someone over their is holding back review complaints..just saying!! Great game unless you need assistance...then they want you to pay again too!
Fraud - don’t buy or download
by AK_John on 2018/01/17 23:44
Response to Developer: If my opponent uses a 20 second bonus, or solicits help from a teammate in order to beat me, then that is cheating, pure and simple. You say you are playing recorded games, so that means you have full knowledge that the recorded game has one or more 20 second bonuses, and/or help from a teammate. Therefore, you know that you are cheating. And the reason you are cheating is to get players like me to watch your videos or spend real money if we want any chance to win a league. If you can’t admit what you’re doing then either you’re in complete denial, or just flat out lying. Team play is a scam. The game leads you to believe you are playing against real opponents in real time, but you are not. The game then decides it will cheat against you, crediting your opponents with words that there is no way they could have come up with on their own. By doing this, the game makers force you to purchase more coins, or make you watch videos - if you want any chance of winning a match. Team play is a fraud, and not worth wasting time or money to play it.
Hate the latest update
by SuperKAG on 2020/06/29 23:26
Loyal Ruzzle fan and daily player for a few years now. I purchased the ad free version a while back. The latest update is a huge bummer. You have to use chips to play all aspects of the game except regular challenges. This wouldn't be the worst problem, except that you're often waiting hours, if not days to play the next round in a challenge. So in between challenges I like to play the tournaments or team play. But you're dropping 10 chips for every game you play. And even if you win, you're not really even breaking even, forcing you to purchase more chips. Because I've already paid for the full version, this makes me feel like I got duped. I understand the developers need to make money (how else would we even have this app?), but the whole thing seems really unbalanced now. I'm disappointed and I hope the folks at Ruzzle will make some adjustments in the near future or I won't be able to continue to play.
Watch a Video- DON'T GET A POWER UP!
by KatrinatheKat on 2018/05/20 04:14
I love Ruzzle and played the ad free version for years. I buy power ups (bonus time or points) but sometimes I watch a video to get the power up for free. Lately there have been videos that do not allow one to close the video without installing the game that was advertised. It happened today with Cube Cube-Mobile. My only options were to replay the video ad or install the app. I didn't want to do either and when I returned to the game, of course I didn't get the promised free bonus. I tried again and got the same result. It wasn't that there was a hidden X somewhere. I reported this to the support team last week. While the response was pretty quick and they did give me coins to use for the one of the bonuses I didn't get by watching the ad, I'm extremely mad that this has happened twice since then. They need to vet these advertisers. Love the game, hate the bait and switch. Update: Also I'm now seeing ads after almost every game. This should NEVER happen when you buy a game.
Lots of Fun
by piano4all2 on 2019/10/16 05:39
I've been playing Ruzzle just about every day for about 6 years now... I have the paid version which gets rid of those pesky ads...Well worth the couple of bucks... I've never had any issues with the app nor have I had any negative experiences with my opponents... I would recommend Ruzzle to anyone who enjoys word games while playing with an opponent or playing solo. A suggestion for those who have experienced hesitation with Ruzzle (or any game): Reset your phone, tablet or whatever you play on to factory settings -- of course make sure everything is backed up. This cleans out all of the miscellaneous junk that gets stored on your device from the internet. I reset all my gadgets to factory settings once every 6 months. Doing this maintenance keeps everything running smoothly.
Phenomenal for Word Lovers & Competitors
by Lontreal on 2018/06/08 16:45
The head-to-head word-finding competition of Ruzzle is the best app I’ve found of its kind, and I’ve played a lot of them! I played Boggle and the Boggle app for years and this takes that idea and perfects it. With individual, tournament and team play, it gives you a slight variety of ways to play and with slightly different formats that keep it interesting. The only things I would suggest to the developers are that they show users how many possible words were available in each game/board, that they track the lifetime average number of words found per game per user (to track your upward progress), and that they allow users to click on an unknown word and look it up in the dictionary (all features that Boggle does). Other than that, Bravo Ruzzle! Awesome game!
Great Game!
by Pilotony on 2018/05/26 18:18
Ruzzle is a fun, addictive and educational word game. You make words by connecting adjacent letters on a grid. It helps you learn new words (if you want to) by listing all the words you didn't catch during the game. Ruzzle is challenging on many levels. The game is timed and you choose to play another player or a robot; there's a weekly contest for high scorers who win coins to be used in the Ruzzle Store; and there are many game upgrades, holiday avatars, etc that are available and keep things interesting. I've played Ruzzle for at least 10 years and have, on a few occasions, contacted Customer Service. My experiences were all positive. The crew worked very hard to solve/explain each concern or problem I had, then offered ways to resolve/fix them. ⭐️Definitely a 5-Star Word Game ⭐️
Ruinous Jul2020 update stinks
by Hairytoes on 2020/10/03 19:29
Update: Watching round replay it is clear: After after the June-July fupkdate, Tournament Play recorded opponents use boosters at much higher rates than real players can afford. Opponent score suddenly starts jumping up around 59-second point, sometimes going for several more seconds past round’s normal 60 sec. When my coins stash is gone, so am I. The fupkdate did a bit of useful simplification (got rid of “ink”) but seemed mostly aimed at revenue enhancement by forcing use of power-up boosters that cost real $$ or require watching multiple video ads or filling out lame surveys. Removed free-to-play weekly events. I’ve been Ruzzle fan from beginning. Paid for no-ads, but didn’t mind watching a video once in a while to get team-play boosters. Much less fun, more frustrating than before. Now the same booster used to cost a single video-ad view now costs 4 video-ad views (15 coin x 4 to buy 50 point booster) when used to be 1. Four times the effort (or more if you can stand the surveys) of earlier major version. Worse, team-play simulated / recorded opponents now use boosters so often is nearly impossible to win rounds without buying boosters. Our team is demoralized, may disband. Having team-play recorded opponents using so many boosters might be based on the pre-crazy boosters economy, but not now. This is not really fair since it doesn’t reflect how much most players can afford to use boosters — much less than before.
New update is cash grab pure and simple
by An:onymous on 2020/05/13 21:58
I have loved this game for years. I play it daily and purchased the app long ago. Now like Rovio and every other greedy developer MAG has ruined the game with micro transaction nonsense. Do what you will with the free version, but for those of us who paid for the app, we now have to pay more or watch ads to have a fair chance in tournaments? Garbage. Total corporate greed. What happened to making something people like, getting paid for it and leaving it the F alone? Now Ruzzle looks like a slot machine in Vegas with all the super high contrast “attraction” animations trying to get you to click and spend money or watch ads. Tournaments are now an exercise in how much cash you’re willing to spend or time watching ads. You want more money, just charge a few bucks more for the paid version. Don’t screw your devoted players to make a few cents off of game tourists. Zero stars for the latest update. I hope MAG is satisfied when your dedicated user base abandons you.
This is terrible and possibly criminal
by CJBPM on 2020/05/14 14:16
I PAID for this app, so I would not see advertising, and with the expectation that people will not be able to use cheats. I am an above average player, but when there are people who are OBVIOUSLY cheating, you report them to the developers....who then do NOTHING. So in order to compete at some level, you would use boosters. You used to be able to just watch a video and you had about 7-8 free boosters; not anymore. You watch a video and you get about 30% of free boosters. Thus, the developer CHANGED the application requiring me to SPEND more money in order to be competitive. I am part of a team, and we are sick and tired of reporting abusers and seeing nothing happen. The developer has NO INCENTIVE to kick off cheaters as long as they make money. I say we abandon this game and find another AFTER we give the developer a chance to fix this debacle. We PAID for this... no more reduction in features or upwelling. Kick off the cheaters (you KNOW who they are).
Still very good, but used to be perfect
by Bidmanx on 2020/05/10 10:59
The new tournament system is a bummer. It used to be something you could play without worrying about chips or rewards. If you wanted extra time or an additional bonus tile, you could watch videos to acquire them, but to play the basic tournament version, you simply pushed start and played away. Now, there are three tournaments being played at all times and you have to earn coins to play them. I’m sure it’s just a gambit to make players watch more advertisements - at least that’s how it seems initially - but I miss the simplicity of the original tournament system. Fortunately, the head-to-head play does not appear to be affected, so the general game is still excellent.
Ruzzle update on iPhone
by Sharon 51 on 2020/08/08 12:23
Great great game that is addicting! Occasionally it gives the same game board for two games, n I wish I knew whether its better to play double word or double length, but overall a great game! I LOVE this game, and have been playing it for years! HOWEVER.... a warning to anyone doing an update of the app.... .... I was playing an old version of the app, which allowed me to play in a weekly tournament for free, and watch a couple videos to get free boosters for the weekly tournament. After updating the app (August 2020) I can no longer play in the weekly tournament for free, or get the boosters for free... I now have to use the black “R” coins EACH TIME I PLAY A GAME AND USE ANY BOOSTERS IN THE TOURNAMENT! I played the weekly tournament about 30-50 times a day.... obviously I can no longer do that now that I have to pay for each game and each booster. the update is a huge disappointment!
Mag reputation ruined
by Islelllll on 2020/05/16 16:57
I have been playing ruzzle for years and always rated it 5 stars. Mag has completely ruined a great game with the most recent upgrade. It’s obviously a move to generate more revenue by having players pay with coins for upgrades, or chips just to play! (Which of course you need to buy with real money). Even if this change had been planned for a long time, Mag released the upgrade at absolutely the WORST time possible. Millions of people have lost their jobs, and this company now wants loyal players to pay to play. The message they sent to the world is “ we don’t give a rip about what you are dealing with, we want to make more $$$”. The reputation of this company just got flushed down the toilet. What a STUPID move! What are the leaders of this company thinking??? Bring back the old Ruzzle! Listen to the voices of your customers ( every recent review trashes the upgrade). Admit you made a mistake before you lose ALL your customers!
Fun to play with family of all ages!
by Spffn on 2020/01/16 22:53
My mother, brother, son, and I all play Ruzzle together and have for several years. It has been great for interacting in a fun way. I enjoy being on a team with my family (although we have not been able to include my son on the Kindle yet). One thing that would truly make Ruzzle great is to have a built in dictionary. I would love it if we could select any of the words at the end of a round and see a simple definition/ possibly origin/ pronunciation. (Even to be able to save a word somewhere like in the app itself or Notes). This would take it from a quick way to pass some time to something educational and even useful. (We learn well when it is fun!)
Addicting
by mmobaby on 2018/07/25 08:11
I’m old school. I started playing Boggle against my mom in late 80’s so if you remember that game (trying to find words by the cubes that were touching in any direction) then this game is for you! Now you don’t need a pen and paper to write them down. Just swipe and you’re on your way. I’ve been playing this game now for almost ten years. Go at your own pace. Challenge random people. I quit playing tournaments a few years ago when they changed it, but when it was just you against 20 people, I won numerous times. One day I’ll try the team thing. Challenge random people because they give you people within your score range. Before you know it, you’ll be one of the best. Happy Gaming!
Can not afford to play this game now!
by rockinwiththedrummer on 2020/05/28 00:11
I've played this game every day for years. I loved the weekly tournament. If I needed stress relief and didn't want to wait for an opponent to play, I'd just keep trying to better my score in the Weekly Tournament. Now to play a round and to get the boosters, which you used to get enough for free each day to play two-three rounds with all boosters available, NOW YOU PAY FOR EVERYTHING! In the two weeks I've played the new version, I was given 4,000 coins and earned 760 for placing 1st in the tournament, and I have 38. That's only playing two to three rounds of the tournament each day with all boosters, and I missed two days. They want $40 for 5,000 coins! So if I only play two to three games in the tournament each day, you expect me to pay $80/month?!?! The developer has done lost his mind!! I won't be playing anything I have to pay more than a nominal amount for ONCE.
Great game
by RRayL on 2020/10/20 23:23
This is a game I’ve been playing for years. If I ever have an issue our contact support and they are very quick to reply. I have a lot of other games that come and go on my phone but this is one that I never quit playing. Play it every single day. Love it. My one complaint is that you win a lot of useless stuff but you never win coins. In order to play so many of the games they’re offering now you have to use coins. I am not going to spend my hard earned money to play a game that I purchased and I’ve been playing for years.I realize I need to make money but why not charge a yearly fee for the game and allow you to play rather than make you pay $9.99 every time you need to get a few coins.
Tournament play is now rigged
by nfarenga on 2019/08/19 13:15
I have been playing Ruzzle for years. I paid years ago to upgrade to no ads because I love this game. I have played in tournaments for years and have always been in the top or at the top. For the last few weeks the boards I’ve been given have never had a word count over 150 and usually have under 100. I ALWAYS had a daily score of over 2000 easily and even over 3000. For weeks I have not been able to get a score over 1000. Maybe I got a 1200. To literally go from years of daily scores over 2000 to struggling board after board to get 1000 is obvious of something rigged. When I play my friends the boards have over 200 words but never in tournaments anymore. I can understand random boards with under 100 words but board after board. Over 50 in a row!!! That’s just ridiculous. This is quickly going from my favorite game to so frustrating I’m considering uninstalling.
Many words are made up
by Amirrah on 2019/04/06 15:47
Too many words are completely made up and not found in any real dictionary. This gives players who have memorized the game an unfair advantage. To the point where real players will almost never win. Examples: AA, EA, ER, HA, AH, YA, EE, IO, HAA, YAH, ES, etc. I get that a lot of these are (wrongly) in the official Scrabble dictionary, but acronyms, Spanish words, some names (but not most, so it's impossible to guess) should not be allowed. Exclamations aren't super awful, but they add to the overall problem; you can win over and over again without finding or spelling a single real word. It's silly. Especially when 40+ 2- and 3- letter acronyms result in one player beating another who spent all her time spelling out 30+ real 5- and 6-letter words. All because the vowels had Triple Word bonuses. Enjoy, if it's your type of game, but I found it to be a waste of time. Once I learned the tricks and started to win more than half the time, it was boring.
Go back to the old game
by SS Hart on 2020/06/15 09:45
They changed the entire format of the game. I wouldn’t consider that an ‘update.’ I give it two stars because the original boggle-type play is still fun. But playing weekly tournaments were fun too, and now you can’t play without paying a lot of real cash or watching many, many (many!) full 30 SECOND ads. Their repetitive ads often stop animation at the 20 second mark, but you still have to stare at the screen for the full 30 seconds in order to earn the coins you need. (Yes, I did watch A LOT of ads before to earn boosters, but originally it was 1 ad = 1 booster. Now it’s about 4 ads = 1 booster. Ridiculous!) Personally, I don’t want to waste my life watching that many of the same ads or pay cash, but if I don’t, I can’t play at an equal level as my competitors... I’m very disappointed.
Abusive players
by SkaSk8er on 2017/09/03 14:48
I have played the free version of this game for several years now. I play for fun and to get better and faster, however in the last couple of weeks I have been accused of cheating by 2 different players one of which was JNET2014 who was very rude and abusive. After playing only 1 round of one game she quit and sent me an abusive message. First of all I lose more games than I win so that cheating app I've been accused of using must not be very good 😜. What's the point in cheating? I don't understand. Anyway, it used to be fun but apparently a crop of paranoid poor losers is taking over this app. I think I'll delete it and go back to Pogo where I can just play games against the computer. Computers aren't abusive and paranoid they just play and keep their mouths shut 😝 What's up with this site? Just read my review and that is totally not my screen name!
Love it but...
by BuddyLove42_ on 2018/11/26 13:01
I love this game, but I there are things that can make it really great. I think it would be fair to see if other players used boost in rounds during tournament play. for instance, along side the score for the round it could say, “Team play” and/or “20 seconds”, indicating it was used, perhaps with icons or something. This way it will be clear to players when they were used, or applied to determine scores (Not exactly sure how the tournament play works). It would help me size up my competition better! Additionally!!!... Do not let players pause and come back mid round, or at least pause, close the app and come back. I feel like too many people are using cheat apps. It would be great to eliminate cheaters!!! -Buddy Love🔥
TOO MANY CHEATERS!!
by Butter_IsBetter on 2020/03/28 09:37
When this app first came out years ago, it was FANTASTIC. Now, however, it’s not good at all and there’s no real challenge. 98% of the people that I’ve run into are using the cheat app. It makes no sense to me. Why even play a skilled word game if you’re going to use a cheat bot? These games are meant to exercise the brain. I’m upset that the developers of this game can’t find a way to stop these people from cheating. I have some real life friends that I’ve played the board game Scrabble with. These friends are not necessarily good spellers. However, I recently invited a couple of them to this game to get some exercise on their ABC’s, and they had scores that were phenomenal. I asked them how they could get so many large words in such a short time, but can’t spell a 5 letter word in regular Scrabble. That was when I learned of the cheat apps. So for those of you looking for honest competition and good word fun, you might want to look elsewhere, because this game is not fun when everyone is cheating. PS: If you’re not good with words, maybe you should play the game the right way. You might learn something. And if you’re not interested in learning how to spell, there are plenty games available that require no brains at all. 🤯🤯🤯
Team play frustrations
by zimmiesmom on 2019/09/04 06:47
I enjoy the collaboration of a team working together and competing against other teams and I enjoy the fast pace, completing all three rounds and getting immediate win or loss. The quick pace of team play has improved my skills for the standard ruzzle that I've enjoyed for years. BUT the team ruzzle has little to do with skill. The winner often has paid for their victory. I know this because I frequently view the replay and low and behold I was keeping pace, a little ahead, or I was clearly winning, then BAM! The opponent has decided that this will be their win so they use their cheat. It's like a football team that is unsuccessful in getting down field so they hire a pickup truck and machine guns! It has nothing to do with competition, skill, ability, speed. It's just a card up their sleeve. When I play I choose to use my unaided ability so I loose all the time. MADDENING!!!
It’s fun but...
by Projectoreo500 on 2019/10/27 15:23
I enjoy playing Ruzzle, especially with friends, I like to practice and play against other people and players, it’s fun, stress relieving and overall addicting, one problem I have with this is the ads, I know you guys need ads to help keep your app running, I get that, it’s just every once and a while I get the ads where it is impossible to 'X' out of without them bombarding you to download the pointless app that I don’t even need. Some of the apps don’t even have an X so I am stuck on a page and wherever I click something that I THINK will get me out of the page, the stupid notification to buy the app pops up. So other than that, the app is pretty good.
New week, same old problem - still unresolved issues after multiple attempts at customer support
by laflicka on 2018/11/12 02:27
*Edit: I actually came back to give this game even fewer stars. While playing the team tournament the game continues to crash on the third round. It has happened enough times that I stopped counting. I continue to email customer support, but they have yet to figure out the problem and I'm tired of the same back-and-forth with them, especially the last time when the said they needed screen shots, so I sent one and got back a snarky response. This used to be my go-to, every evening game. Now I'm just too irritated by it to play. This was one of my all-time favorite games, but since the update it crashes, freezes, won't open, and/or shows that I scored zero points in a round. It is seriously annoying. Please fix and I promise to come back and update to more stars.
Team Play Issues
by Rothe24 on 2017/11/21 05:51
There has been an issue with team play for a little while now. It happens when it’s about to switch over to the new week. You will be in the middle of a match and the 3rd round will end but it won’t count and it will essentially turn into a normal game, rather than team play. At the end of the round, it makes you replay it endlessly and you don’t get reimbursed for the coins that you used to use the power ups the first time around such as extra time or team help. Also, another glitch is that you will be in the top 3 of a league(Bronze or Silver) and it will tell you that you’re going back down to Bronze rather than moving you up like you should be. It does eventually correct itself after a bit.
Disappointed with most recent update
by Sad PLF on 2020/05/08 14:46
I have been happily playing this game for YEARS! I paid to have the ads removed a long time ago. However I do not mind watching them in order to gain advantages... I've even purchased a few things this way over the years. But this new idea of charging coins/chips for EVERYTHING is a horrible disappointment. I've always enjoyed the weekly tournaments but will no longer be playing them since you have to pay (even without any advantage). I also enjoy the team play, but now that I don't have my daily 100 free coins, I'm not sure I'll participate in that either. I'll keep playing against my Ruzzle friends, but you've lost me as a player on the rest of the games. It seems the only way to earn a decent amount of coins is to watch the daily advertisement over and over again...SAD.
Pay to Win
by gamer23423 on 2021/02/23 23:43
Wow. This game is absolutely pay to win. Everything costs in game money. Even to view stats!! When you run out of on game money, which happens very soon, you basically can’t do anything. The matchmaking is horrible, when I started I was level 2 and I played with someone level 43. This game needs skill based match making. The events are absolutely horrible, I played and got 6th, and so was supposed to get a reward for placing. But then I did not get any reward, and my entry fee was wasted. There is also no free profile customization, I can’t even change the emoji of my profile to something actually decent. The only good things about this game is the team/clan system and the gameplay. I am yet to try out the team system but it looks good, and the game’s overall gameplay is quite nice. But other than that, the game is pretty under average.
I play every day!
by spyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyu on 2020/10/30 09:12
1. There are so many word games out there, and this is the one I keep coming back to. The game combines strategy, vocabulary, spelling, and speed. What I like most is the game is clean. It doesn’t have a lot of flashy, noisy things to distract. Plus it never crashes or freezes. I’ve been playing for many years now. I bought every upgrade I could (there aren’t many) because I want to support the developer so the game won’t ever go away. 2. All that said, I only play one on one games now. The tournaments are crazy expensive (Ruzzle money) and I no longer enjoy them. Plus the opponent matching seems skewed.
What a shame!
by fishdavid81 on 2017/10/10 09:57
This game is a lot of fun except the team play is now allowing players to reset their ranks to beat others. It’s ridiculous that a person with a one ranking can score 50 words in one minute. The other players are cheating to get more coins. Also the puzzles they say are random are always crappy until you try fifty times. I hate that I paid for this crap and that I keep trying to play but it’s clearly far from fair and the developers should accurately rank players in team play. I’m disgusted with this app and will give it up for good this time. Best to never start playing this game because you want it to at least be fair and it’s not. How about the tournaments and team play all actually get the same puzzles. No way the scores would be out of place like they are or maybe the developers like to screw people over. They are great at it.
New update 👎👎
by Charluvsu2 on 2020/07/02 15:04
I’ve been playing Ruzzle for about 10 years. I bought the game to avoid the ads in between games. That’s not the issue. The issue is that I had gained coins throughout my time and Now with this latest updates, I am half way done with spending them just to get boosters. There is no way to win meaningful chips unless you play team play in the Gold division and win! Otherwise you can spend a week playing the team play, spend a lot of coins then win only 160 coins back if you end up on 4th place. Maybe this is the way it has always been, but I never noticed until now because my coins are almost depleted. Not very happy with this update. It is hard to earn coins. Once I am out of coins and chips I suppose I will quit playing.
Unfair play
by kayaker__ on 2020/04/07 03:57
Does anyone even play fairly on this game anymore? I have been playing for years and lately every single game I have played against another random player or the other opponents on the team plays have all clearly been using some type of Ruzzle Cheat to play all of the highest scored words and/or all of the words that are on board. There should be a way to make the game more honest and fair.. It’s not even fun to play it anymore when you have no fair chance at winning any games at all and end up loosing all of your chips to people who need to cheat to solve word puzzles. I mean, I have even played against some people where they would have normal scores in the first two rounds and then the on the final somehow end up with over 100 words and all of them being the highest scoring words on the board.
Ruined
by MrCoffee42 on 2020/05/13 08:18
This has been my favorite Boggle style game for a while. This latest update ruined it though. Devs? Are you all idiots? Just to start, I paid for ad free. In the store it confirms I paid for ad free. Yet you are now pushing me to get daily rewards by looking at ads! I wouldn’t mind if the button was just there, but you have to have pop up flags pushing me to look at it. I paid your fee so I don’t have to look at ads! If that wasn’t enough money for you, fine. Charge me more. But let me get rid of all the stinking ads. Stupid. And to change the currency, so now I have to pay for each game I play? What the hell? I guess I won’t do tournaments anymore, because I typically play dozens of games to get the best score I can. Not if you’re charging for every stupid round. Sheesh. Put it back the way it was. You broke the game.
