by uhuhuhuubvd on 2019/12/02 06:49
I really do like the game, but I have been “locked out” of the basic game for about a year now. Although I have solved the puzzle correctly, the game won’t advance to the next one. I have put in a help request, I have never gotten a response or fix to the problem. So, I just play the word of the day & periodic seasonal challenge.
Great App

Warning—you’ll have to buy hints.
Tired of wasting my money
by Me. Bear Lvr on 2019/11/16 10:11
I’ve spent lots of real dollars on this game for extra hints. After a certain point it’s hard to do the puzzles cuz you cannot use a consecutive hint in the first word (or any word), so you wind up using LOTS of hints just to get a puzzle started. You should be able to get “free hints” a few times per day, but I’ve been trying for 3 days straight just to get one free hint and message keeps saying “not available try later.” For 3 whole days not a single free hint. I’ve sent help messages before but got a stupid answer. I’m tired of spending money and asking for free hints, not getting any for days, and tired of asking app for help and not getting any. I requested my information, after I get it, I’m deleting this game. I’d rather spend my money on a game that isn’t this frustrating and app personnel will actually help to correct whatever is wrong with my “free” hints button. What’s sad is I’ve been playing this game for a couple years and they have been making money from me. I’m done!!! RESPONSE to your Response: Upon receiving your response today, I’m more determined now to delete your game than I was before. Your response claimed that I needed to update my version of the game as I am supposedly playing an older version. Well, if there was an update why don’t I have an update available in my apps update box? I don’t!! So before you tell me to update the game you should have an update available. The other games and apps I use periodically have updates and they all show up in the updates box. Second, I know how to contact your help center, as I already did and they claimed there is no problem and to keep trying. Duh!! If you bothered to read my first response you would know I already did it and got a stupid answer with no one even trying to help. I’m not stupid I know how to contact your help center. And third, I’m having the same problem that some others are having that just posted here recently, like the ads staying stuck and when I finally cancel after a few minutes, not seconds, no hint. So, I’m not the only one having issues. Your response to me was degrading. Finally, I requested the personal information that you collected on me, located in your privacy controls, and I was sent an email from you that was supposedly in a zip file, but I cannot open that file AT ALL. When I touch on the link absolutely nothing happens. And please don’t respond back insulting me on how to open a zip file. I’m not stupid!!! Your email with the file is bogus. Please just send the information to my email (not a zip file or any other bs file) and tell me what information you collected on me, as is my right to have. I’m so over this stupid drama.
Too many ads
by MikalaMarie💖 on 2019/11/15 23:41
This game is perfect and I love it so much, but sometimes the ads pop up consecutively and it can be annoying. All games have ads so it’s really not that bad but sometimes when you’re in the zone it can be aggravating to wait a whole minute to be able to close out of an ad 😅😕

by kwpeitu on 2019/11/15 01:32
I have been playing WordBrain for a very long time. It has always been one of my favorites!!! Now, however, when I watch an ad to get a hint has the ad WILL NOT GO AWAY!!! It, apparently, is trying to force me to go to the product site! Flashlights, body building, car wax!!!! I WILL NOT EVER EVER BE HELD HOSTAGE AND FINALLY CAVE IN BECAUSE THE AD REFUSES TO GO AWAY. I think this is so disappointing!!! I actually left the page up while I went to the store and when I got home it was still there!! No hint — No playing WordBrain!

Playing Protocol
by MickiMaio on 2019/11/14 01:47
It appears this game is more concerned with the order of the letters than getting the actual words correct. If I get the word, why can’t I solve the game. I need to make sure the letters are in the right order. The game is more a trick than really focused on word brain!
This game is messed up
by Nsndosn on 2019/11/13 20:01
Ive had it for like two years and played every day and today it told me that I used all 32 of the hints I accumulated on a puzzle I wasnt even up to yet. So I deleted it.

Challenging But
by M_Furby on 2019/11/11 03:57
The software has several,glitches. So you can watch videos for clues but sometimes the videos get stuck. So you have to watch ads (that last forever! Or maybe 30 seconds plus another 5!). The ads have a tendency to force you to the App Store to buy the game being advertised. So it’s a little frustrating with the ads and glitches. I just like to play because it forces me to think outside the box and be creative with words and not lock into the words I use most frequently.

Ridiculous amount of ads
by jnbcd on 2019/11/09 21:50
I get that free versions of games are going to come with ads, but this is ridiculous. I had a previous version of this game a year or two ago and it wasn’t a problem. Now an ad (usually around 15-30 seconds) will pop up after EVERY. SINGLE. PUZZLE. It’s absurd and a colossal waste of time. Definitely not worth playing anymore.

Fun but puzzle of the day
by LK==== on 2019/11/06 12:14
I like the game. I enjoy that you’ve added more events. And I was really enjoying puzzle of the day—except the streak resets if you travel. I’m not sure if it’s because I played while not connected to a network, the time zone change, or something else. But it’s really frustrating to have my streak reset so frequently, when I’m playing everyday. Latest update has broken something so you can’t see puzzle boards on iPhones. Nothing shows for the board in both daily game and standard game set.
Puzzles don’t open after last update !!!!

by midgemarg on 2019/11/06 01:46
Good game. Would prefer that the hints were consecutive to a word. You did a great upgrade when a word you found would stay in memory on the board even if you had to close out the game momentarily.

by soyoudontwanttoknow on 2019/10/30 15:47
I found this game stimulating but am not a fan of the scoring system. Many times I find words but get no credit for them. And there is no system for earning hints. They must be purchased.
Not fun
by sggrx12 on 2019/10/30 02:34
In a 7x7 letter grid the chance of you guessing which 4 letter word they want can be time consuming and aggravating. There are many words available but you have to guess which one they want. It’s their way of making money because you use a hint then you’re screwed unless you buy more hints.

I could deal with the ads - just wait til they finish then close them. But NOW, after EVERY game, it opens to App Store! I have to close out of it and open the game again. I loved your holiday puzzles and daily puzzles, but it’s just not worth it! GOOD-BYE
Like the special events but
by Nbandbjm on 2019/10/22 12:26
I do the special events puzzles but recently I only get one point not the ten my husband gets for doing the same puzzles. Variation in the patterns and more variety in words would be nice also.

A good challenge, but....
by Bftsplk on 2019/10/19 23:08
I sometimes wish the game made use of a bigger, more erudite vocabulary. Secondly, if (for example) the word you were supposed to choose was “smile,” it would seem appropriate to reward the player if he/she instead chooses “miles,” or even “limes.” And to state the obvious, if I’ve already paid for the game at the App Store, why the hell should I have to pay an additional $5.00 just to remove the obnoxious advertisements that clutter up the screen? I resisted upgrading the game for years for fear of being deluged by unwanted ads. Now that I’ve upgraded it, I wish I could go back to the earlier, ad-free version. The internet already has WAY too many ads, and your company has copped out by including this junk along with its software. You blew it, period.

I like how if you do ten bonus words you get a shiny star, but why not give us something more useful? Like, if we did our ten bonus words, give us a hint or something. That way some of us don’t have to go through not having them all the time.

by DDnOC on 2019/10/17 13:37
It’s a fun game but ads are repetitive and annoying. Especially the sound. They are often loud and lately when I mute it the sounds keeps coming back on so I have to keep finding the mute that moves from corner to corner to press it. It’s a bit stupid to have to play along with this unwanted “game” for an ad I wasn’t interested in in the first place. **UPDATE: it also does not accurately track progress. It supposedly keeps a record of consecutive days the puzzle of the day is solved. There are times I know that I have solved the previous day but it doesn’t record it.
Ads nearly ruin the gameplay
by Yours truly_a on 2019/10/16 04:13
I just got back into playing this game and still enjoy it but the ads are awful. Even with my phone muted every ad plays at full volume, seriously limiting when and where I can play. I considered paying to get rid of ads, but it’s absurdly expensive. And if isn’t even a one-time fee, it’s something like $5 every few months. No thanks.

by wjhbmom on 2019/10/11 04:21
On numerous occasions I have swiped a correct word over and over and it does not accept it. After I finally use a hint it will accept that same word. Not fair to force someone to buy hints (I refuse to do that) and the ads are out of control in all apps. I have deleted games I love to play just because the ads are overwhelming.
Great exercise!

I lost my iPad and when I got a new one I lost my level and hints. I was at a level that only had 1 other person who had solved the puzzles and it has sent me way back. Any help you can give is appreciated. I also had no ads on my games and this is very annoying. Thank you, Jane Scelzo
No longer enjoyable
by ptcpm on 2019/10/06 07:26
I use to play this a few years ago and enjoyed it. I downloaded it again today and have found that for every puzzle solved, I have to watch 2 ads. I understand that is how they make money but if every time I finish ONE I have to watch, wait and click to close 2 ads, it is no longer fun or worth the trouble.

Review for WordBrain
by Geema JPS on 2019/10/04 03:23
Although I try to solve each puzzle without using hints, I usually give myself the first letter of each word. I feel absolutely brilliant when I solve each word and SUPERBRILLIANT when the whole puzzle comes together. I am thrilled to be using my vocabulary and proud as I progress forward! This is a terrific game to play to keep your brain sharp!

Could Use a Tweak
by Gdubyall on 2017/10/03 01:35
I recently started playing this game upon a recommendation from a friend. For some reason, the game wouldn't come up in the App Store. My friend deleted her app to try to find it again and she couldn't. Happily we finally were able to locate it. So it would behoove someone to make it easier to find the app. The other suggestion/complaint I have is that the game explanation/rules should be clearer on being able to go back and "undo" the game when a word is solved but the resulting letters are arranged in such a way that making the remaining word is impossible; e.g. One or two of the remaining letters is disconnected from the rest and, therefore, impossible to form a word. I used a few hints before I finally realized what was happening. Other than that, I'm very happy with this game. It's a nice break from the frustration of 4-suit Spider Solitaire. 2017 update. If this game could move with new hardware, it would be perfect. I am up to a very high level in this game but got a new iPad and the game won’t transfer over. As a result, I have to begin all over again. Not fun. So now I have to keep the old iPad for the sole purpose of playing the game and not losing my position. There should be a better way. The Apple people don’t support this app.
my opinion...𝑤𝑜𝑟𝑑𝑏𝑟𝑎𝑖𝑛
by Ølivia🖤 on 2019/02/25 04:51
I have been playing wordbrain since November of 2017. It’s extremely addicting once you get to the harder levels. And when I say hard, I mean, hard. These levels have you racking your brain. So you may think, “oh. I guess I should use a hint.” Well, you don’t have many. Hints are expensive, and I’m not spending $5 on 15 hints. What I DO like is that every time you change brains, you get hints. Basically in this game you start off in a snail brain, and theres a number of levels in there. As you progress you get a mermaid brain, unicorn, and even alien. These all have levels in them. But once you progress from snail to frog, you get 7 or so hints. This makes the game easier and makes me want to level up more, knowing my hard work will pay off when I get to harder levels. Ads are a big thing in this game. I don’t like finishing a level and getting 2 ads. And they aren’t those 4 second ads, either. You get those rarely. The most common ads are the 25-30 second ones. And they are 1 or 2 after each level. And if you have been trying the level for a while, halfway though an ad pops up! But that’s my opinion on wordbrain. I hope a developer will respond because I’d love to discuss an issues I’ve been having where I watch a video for a hint and I do not receive it. Please fix this!!!
Suddenly too many ads
by rondelagua on 2018/07/10 04:57
This is an engaging game, one that I play almost every day. All games/levels are solvable with increasing difficulty as levels are reached. At Minotaur level word difficulty and complexity increases dramatically. I don’t mind sitting through the ads to gain free hints. I’ve gathered well over 600 by doing so, even having made purchases from some of them. BUT...something changed a few weeks ago and now there are constant ads. Every time you form the first word (maybe second) of a level an ad pops up and I often see no way to skip it. Sometimes they’re short and you can close them out after a few seconds or so; while inconvenient to the rhythm, I can deal with that. But too often you’re stuck with a 30 second ad, often for something I have no interest in. And if you restart the game you have to go through the same crapola again and again. I had to watch some Empires and Galaxies ad or some such thing four times! in just a few minutes! Mid game even more of these unwanted ads pop up so there is constant interruption. This will make me stop playing the game. Which means I’ll no longer watch the ads I choose to for hints and won’t be looking at any of those products. Change this!!
Constant ads killed this game
by frustrated_by_ads on 2018/11/15 16:43
I have been a long time player of this game (over 2 years). It has helped pass the time on my relatively short train commute. However, the recent changes that give you a 30 second ad (i.e Angry Birds), that takes over the screen and audio after virtually every game action has rendered the game unplayable. I would play this game while listening to a podcast. After each 30 second video ad i would have to navigate over to the podcast to relaunch, then back to the game to solve a word, then have to sit through another 30 video ad for Angry Birds, then back to the podcast player to resume playback, then back to the game, and over and over again in a non-stop loop of back and forth between the game and podcast player. I get it that the game makers want you to pay them to make the ads go away but just keep this in mind when you decide to get started with this game. You may play for a while without the constant ad interruptions, but eventually you will be faced with only 2 options, either: a) pay them to make the ads go away temporarily, or b) quit the game entirely because the way it is now, with the constant ad interruptions, it is not an enjoyable way to pass the time.
Great game, but...
by Highway35 on 2018/10/19 04:53
I started this game 2 years ago, and liked it instantly. I played it until I almost finished all the platforms and then an update occurred and I suddenly had more levels to complete. I finished all the levels and waited for another update so I could play it some more. But that’s when the game took a downturn for me. With the latest level there are so many ads you can’t enjoy the game. Every time I reset the puzzle, I get an ad of 15 to 30 seconds. Every time I let my screen go to sleep and wake it up, I get another ad. Even if I play constantly for a few minutes, my game will be interrupted by an ad. Some of the ads can be canceled at the end by clicking on an X in the upper corner, but sometimes there is no X and you have to figure out where to click to get out of the ad. And still another ad requires you to make a selection in the ad. Even though I really like the game and the improvements made to it, I will be deleting it and hope that when I receive additional levels of the game on Wordbrain 2, it does not have the increased number of ads in it.
Now unplayable. Nonstop ads and shady ad tactics.
by Mackenzie h r on 2019/07/19 01:46
This game was once our family obsession. Had beaten all the levels. Came back after two years, excited to play all the new levels and see all the updates, and it is essentially unplayable. So. Many. Ads. All the time. And with shady, money grubbing tactics. Overriding your mute settings, hidden or no x to close out the ad, misleading buttons in ads, longer ads than gameplay, ads popping up mid-play, just to name a few. At one point in time, I would have gladly paid for an ad-free version, but now there is no way I’m sending them any money. Their advertising tactics and the advertisers they work with are straight up the lowest of the low. So now, not only will I not support the advertisers, but I have no interest in supporting the developers because they have committed to this scammy revenue path. Deleting instead. Do yourself a favor and don’t waste your time on this app. It’s everything that’s wrong with in-app advertising. You’ll spend more time watching ads than playing, and it wont take long to go from “I should pay for the ad-free pack” to “this is beyond making a living, this is advertising extortion and I refuse to support it.”
Fun game, but getting repetitive
by PianoSue on 2019/06/04 18:48
I’m enjoying this game, but feel there could be a couple of improvements that would make it more fun and fulfilling. As the levels increase, I expected the hidden words to increase in difficulty, too, but they haven’t. They are still pretty basic vocabulary words, with quite a bit of repetition (I swear SLIPPERS is every 5th puzzle!) I think the scrambling has gotten more complex as levels have proceeded, but not the words themselves. The "star bonus" words are especially simple and repetitive (TIN is always an option if those letters are in the puzzle). What advantage is there to earning those stars, anyway? How about a free hint if a player finds all 10 words? I wish that players could skip to higher levels on their own and try those puzzles instead of working their way up, as sometimes 20 puzzles per level is too many. I wish the game would give a free hint after every 5 puzzles solved instead of 3 hints after solving 20.
You can get stranded with no recourse
by Hootive on 2017/09/13 00:16
While I've enjoyed playing this game and have gotten almost 2/3 of the way through the game, I got to a puzzle that literally defies the assertion in the help section of the game that "every level can be solved". I tried every combination possible to get a final word, but there was no way to configure the letters to spell the word "sphere", which I confirmed by spending six hints. I literally gave up and looked on line at a solutions site. Not only is my particular puzzle configured completely differently in the online version, "sphere" is not even one of the words for the solution to that level. I emailed the developer because they have made mistakes before and corrected them, according to the solutions site, but so far no response. And they don't even give you a chance to "buy" your way around a puzzle--surprising, given they can really run up the money when you pay for more hints. Oh well...
Challenging
by Spikefromthepast on 2017/12/31 18:54
I just started playing and really enjoy this game. I wish you could earn more hints, as I find I need to use them more as the puzzles get bigger. I also wish you didn’t have to complete 20 games before getting some extra hints. Other than that I really enjoy playing. My one complaint is that when I first started playing you could get two free hints a day by playing a video. Those seem to have gone away, and Now you only get a hint by completely 20 levels, and as you progress further into the game if obviously gets much more challenging. I have bought hints once , when they were on sale, but I don’t normally spend money on games. Why did these free hints go away?
Addictive word game but update ruined
by MsLCC on 2018/01/29 16:57
This is an addictive word game & great fun. But I got to the Minotaur level and with the last update I did on my IPhone with the 11.2.5 patch I could no longer see the puzzle. There were the blanks at the bottom but no letters. So I deleted it, reloaded it and started over from the beginning. Not happy. To add insult to injury the bonus hints wouldn’t accumulate beyond 10. No matter how many levels I go and how many hints it says I’ve added, the hint level stays at 10. I used 2 just to see if that made a difference and it doesn’t. It is stuck. Now I have 8 and they don’t accumulate. So bottom line is, the game is working but is still buggy. Not that the hints are needed at the levels I’m having to do over from the beginning but it’s disappointing. I don’t know if it’s the iPhone update or the app update but they are not compatible. Cannot speak for other devices or platforms.
I like it but there seems to be a glitch
by DeeBergz on 2018/10/21 03:51
I do really like this game but I just lost a bunch of hints because it seems with the sale they just vanished. I had 30+ hints earlier today I’ve played a few puzzles and I can’t have used more than five (I really try not to use too many hints) and then when I went to play again just now it said I had zero and advertised the sale. I just wonder how many times that’s happened and to how many people. Because I remember wondering when I’d used all my hints once before when I signed on to play after not playing for awhile and thinking how lucky I was there was a sale and I feel like that may have been another time all my hints vanished. So I do like the game I just don’t want it eating my money when I haven’t actually used up all my hints.
Great game held back by a few major issues
by rmreed98 on 2019/05/27 18:32
I’ve played Wordbrain for years, it’s a very fun game overall and I do enjoy it. However, there are two issues with it that really frustrate me. Firstly, the ads are constant and intrusive, sometimes I won’t even be able to close an ad without having to quit and restart the app entirely. However, I understand that ads are just a part of games nowadays. My main issue with Wordbrain is that, as someone who often needs to take flights and move across timezones, I can’t hold a daily challenge streak without it resetting every time I go on a plane. It’s extremely frustrating to spend weeks on keeping up with the daily challenges, only for it to be reset to zero once I arrive in a new time zone. Not sure if it’s a bug or not, but it’s really killed my desire to keep up with the challenges.
No Pressure
by Outatheshute on 2019/02/20 04:40
I can play this game at my own pace, like Boggle without a clock, or Scrabble without a score. No penalty for wrong words, as many tries as I want to solve each puzzle. Great interface with no need to type. Not addictive, yet, and a great way to spend time between naps😏 There are a lot more ads than when I initially started, but the quality of the puzzles are worth the wasted time in forced ad viewing. Without the free hint per 30-second ad view, I would probably put this baby down and do something else, but being able to accumulate hints for free has helped me to get all the way through Kraken, and I have hints left over, so I guess I’ll keep going.
On it’s way to being a cash grab...
by Psruggr on 2018/06/25 00:24
With the last couple of updates, ads and deal pop ups are being shoved in your face a lot. The game was no doubt 5 stars before this. Ads don’t just pop up b/t puzzles now, but also once you find the first word of a puzzle, you get an ad. As well, each puzzle you open, you get a deal pop up that covers up the blank words. You are forced to open it and see the deals on hint packages to be able to clear the pop up. But if you’re like me, you contact MAG. A few days later, I received this email: “Thank you for contacting us. We apologize for the inconvenience caused. We understand that you are getting Ads more frequently in the game. We have escalated this issue to our product team and they will surely fix it incoming updates. Meanwhile, if you want you can purchase any one of the hints pack available for sale in-game, this will convert your game to an Ad-free version. Additionally, if you have any other query regarding WordBrain, please let us know!” So there you go. Cash grab. I fully support those behind the game being able to make a living. However, backhanded cash grabbing is not ok. Just offer an ad free option for $3-$5. This is what ruined Angry Birds...and this game is one step closer to it.
Exercise Your Mind
by #1Gamer83 on 2017/09/18 07:48
This is a great game to mentally challenge yourself. You have to plan your words out because there is only one way to solve the puzzle. Although the app uses common, everyday words, it's amazing how challenging the levels can get. It is tempting to use your hints, but keep in mind that you only have so many of them. God sent his son, Jesus to die on the cross for your sins. If you would like to be saved from hell, you must admit that you are a sinner. Then, by faith, you must believe in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Next, it's a matter of confessing all your sins, asking Him to come into your heart, and making you a new creature.
A good challenge, but....
by Bftsplk on 2019/10/19 23:08
I sometimes wish the game made use of a bigger, more erudite vocabulary. Secondly, if (for example) the word you were supposed to choose was “smile,” it would seem appropriate to reward the player if he/she instead chooses “miles,” or even “limes.” And to state the obvious, if I’ve already paid for the game at the App Store, why the hell should I have to pay an additional $5.00 just to remove the obnoxious advertisements that clutter up the screen? I resisted upgrading the game for years for fear of being deluged by unwanted ads. Now that I’ve upgraded it, I wish I could go back to the earlier, ad-free version. The internet already has WAY too many ads, and your company has copped out by including this junk along with its software. You blew it, period.
Pleasantly Addictive
by Michele Rosen on 2017/11/24 15:16
Many addictive games are mindless, but this one is mind -stretching. It keeps testing my word skills yet is fun. I also like that there is no time limit so I can be stumped for a while yet come back later and succeed. Update Thanksgiving 2017: A terrible restriction has been resolved and I am very thankful. It used to be that I could only play on my iPhone and progress would be lost if I switched to another device or even if I bought a replacement phone. Well, today that is fixed! Progress can be saved using Facebook and synched across all devices. And I am free to buy a new phone. Thank you WordBrain Team.
Great game but a few problems...
by Greasyrasta on 2017/11/21 02:27
I think this is a great educational game for children to get there brains going. But there are very few problems I need to discuss, which I think will effect your app greatly. 1. Innapropeat language. I have played some of the puzzles and realized there is innapropiate language used, such as sex, hell, devil, and cuss words. I think as a app for young children this needs to be fixed. 2. Too many adds! I don't understand why there is an add every time you complete a level. Every single time I have failed or completed a level, you will give me a 25 second add. I constantly get tired of this when I am trying to play a relaxing game that multiple adds come up every few minutes. 3. Glitches ALOT I think that if your trying to have a fun app where you can relax, this is good if you have a GOOD VERSION. My version in my IOS device glitches constantly and makes me start over levels. The reason I give this three stars is because i think it is a good app but of all the things I stated above. Sincerely, The congress or app ratings, Olivia Massad Lilara.
Ads cover content
by Edonc9147 on 2019/05/06 20:20
I gave 5 stars because I enjoy the game and think it deserves that rating. I do not enjoy the ads that cover the content. When I report those ads, with the hope that I can continue playing, Google removes the ad but the removal banner remains over the ad and then another ad pops up to take its place still covering the content. Petco is the ad currently intruding on my enjoyment of WordBrain. My only option to continue playing wordbrain is to close the game completely and reopen. It does not encourage me to run to petco to keep my pets happy. Can you stop ads that cover game content and hold me hostage to that intrusion?
The words changed!
by Psmythe on 2017/09/07 17:08
After this update the word changed! I was in the middle of Dinosaur 17 and installed the latest update. Now the words are different and I have to start over. I looked at Dino 16 and they've changed, too. Are they all changed? Do I start all over? Did you do this so the cheat sheets won't work? Update: per dev email, the changes are due to bug fixes and player feedback. Thanks for the reply! So I have feedback: can you move the hints button to the tope of the screen? I keep hitting it by accident. Or maybe add an "Are you sure" button so I can cancel after the accidental click. Thanks.
Frustrating failures of your letter arrangements.
by NURSEGAMALOT on 2018/04/23 03:56
Your game has some frustrating flaws in the arrangements of the letters making it impossible to complete the spelling on level five with “melon” and “well” not being organized so you can spell out “WELL” at all. The W is in the middle left square, one of the L’s was in the lower left square (Just below the W) with the E to the right of the first L and the second L to the right of the E. The placement of the E diagonally to the lower left of the W means you have to choose one of the L’s, with the result that you lose access to the second L on the other side of the E. I ran back through it again with the same result. The arrangement of the letters does not allow you to spell WELL either before or after you spell out in MELON. Noticed some other reviews mentioning similar issues, but decided to try anyway. Too bad! Appeared promising. NURSEGAMALOT
Love it, but!
by OP Senior on 2018/03/21 13:43
The last few times I have gotten the icon for video, I clicked it on, watched the video until it was over and then hit the button to stop it; it goes away and I don't get my free hint! Very frustrating! Same thing just happened tonight. And it is happened like Saturday night as well. Extremely frustrating. I do not understand. I don't think I'm doing anything wrong, but when I get back to the word brain page there is no hint!!! I would really like to know why. Once again, just now, when I hit the button to watch a video to get a free hint, it just goes right back to the game and does not let me watch a video or give me a chance to get a free hint.
Fixes to make game better
by Aprilcarma on 2017/10/16 20:10
I love the game very much. What I don't like is the fact that I never get my free hints when I reach a level. It says I get 3, but never register. Also I don't like the fact they you try and force people to buy hints. I think if you did a daily spin where you could earn free hints like candy crush does would be a nice feature . I may have to delete your game do to the fact that I can't be buying hints all the time. I also think you should have the ability to pick where you want a clue. You have it designed to make you waste your hints.
Challenging and fun, sometimes annoying
by Lil Spunky 1 on 2017/09/12 13:14
The only part I don't care for and have found it very annoying is when I find two words that fit the puzzle and complete it fully, same amount of letters, connected and works with the swipes and the game has very specific words that are predetermined. Of course, I just relook at it and find the ones that the game says is right but it's annoying when the game doesn't calculate for the possibility that there are other words that could also solve the puzzle according to the prerequisite of one 4 letter word and one 5 letter word. ie... bread vs beard... both 5 letters both usually attainable by letter connection.
Kinda Fun game. BUT......
by 12shoestringer on 2019/01/08 15:17
Starts out very easy so you get use to how the game works. Than gets more complicated and tricky- that's the fun, However, no pay game has gotten VERY annoying with all the adds and they are constant and long. My iPad and iPhone for some reason aren't connected so I'm at two totally different levels depending upon which one I'm using. Added the daily challenge and "Hidden Words". But so what?!?You do them for nothing. I collect stars for what reason? And my daily challenge went two weeks and received nothing for it and the re-do is slower so you use hints for no reward. DO NoT use up hints on daily challenge it's a waste. I use to think this was a 5 or 6 star game, now it's 2 1/2.
In love 😍 😝😝😝
by 👼🏿👼🏿👼🏿👼🏿👼🏿 on 2018/10/05 00:18
I love this game so much but it is so hard maybe if they gave us daily hints it would be a little bit easier but other than that I completely love the game and I want more like it. I also want to recommend a really good app called Duolingo I love it so much it helps learn new languages and it is super fun and easy. I also love fishdom it is a really good game I love it so much. But I really love this game a lot and I hope to beat it. 🦀I am on crab right now. Pray for me please!!!!!i love playing and talking to the makers of the games I play. They are really nice. I live in Texas. Peace ✌🏼 out yall👩🏿‍💻🧜🏿‍♀️🧚🏿‍♀️🧚🏼‍♀️🧜🏼‍♀️
Addicting… but the ads —
by All the nicknames I wanted are taken on 2018/07/28 06:05
EDIT: after the most recent update, I can’t even enjoy playing. I find a word, it plays an ad; I finish a level, it plays an ad; I switch to another app for five seconds and come right back, it plays an ad; I reset a level, it plays an ad. Almost NONE of these ads have the option to skip them, so for every step I take in the game, I have to sit through 20-30 seconds of advertisement. I understand having ads in a free game, but this is ridiculous!! Please fix it! I love word games, and after my husband asked my help on a level of this game, I decided to try it for myself. After downloading, I played for two hours straight before I realized it.
Good game
by jan stone on 2017/12/24 04:59
I really like playing this game because it makes me think quite a great deal. It can be frustrating sometimes however when you can’t find the words. But then that’s part of the game. The one thing that is A little more than frustrating is that it often doesn’t seem to give you clues when you have a right to have them. I have even had a few times when it has me watch an ad and then it doesn’t award me the clue which was to go along with watching the ad. It happened 11 times in a row actually at one time when I was playing Otherwise, I truly do really enjoy this game.
Easy at first, but just you wait!
by Swampgirl9 on 2018/07/23 15:52
My brother recommended this app to my Mom and me. I admit to having the app on my iPhone for nearly a year before paying any real attention to it. Then I rediscovered it on my Mom’s iPad. She was many “levels” into the game, and the layouts were 12x12, continuing to increase in size and difficulty, and no longer 3x3 or 4x4. She reviewed the new challenges with me, and I played a couple with her. I am now completely hooked. I thought it wouldn’t be as fun on my iPhone 6S. Wrong!!!! Size doesn’t matter 😲🤐 🤭. So enjoy! It keeps your brain limber and it’s fun!
Love the game, but programming is inconsistent
by Domino255 on 2017/11/25 16:22
Great game that gets more difficult as you progress. Hints are important. Be patient and save them! But how hints are received is inconsistent. The game used to let me watch two advertisements to get two hints a day. Now, nothing. My wife never got the adds and therefore didn't get the hints. Side games allow us collect more hints during holidays/special times of year, but once, after playing a side game, I received no reward. Fix these issues, be consistent, and they've got a perfect game!
Some disappointment
by kherm1 on 2017/11/02 00:23
I love this game, however four new levels were added about a week ago (witch, pumpking, reaper, genie), and there’s a glitch somewhere. I’ve completed all of the WITCH level, got 3 hints for completing, and went on to PUMPKING. I’ve completed 7 or 8 of this level, and even though I get advanced to the next puzzle, if I close the game, and reopen it I’m taken back to the 20th puzzle in the previous level it won’t allow me to go where I was, and all my hints show up, but the puzzles don’t show up finished. I have to start at #1 again in the level. Retry annoying. I’ll wait until there’s an update.
WAY TOO many ads now...
by 123xoxo456 on 2018/06/25 18:24
Use to enjoy but now there are a TON of ads. Yes, they need to make money. But, whereas ads used to appear between rounds, they now start with first moves of the game and then continue, often interrupting plays—multiple times. Also, I pity those who have difficulty with flashing elements; the lightbulb in upper right now flashes continuously, coaxing you to recommend friends. No chance with this present version. Coupled with flashing, hard-to-close ads, a once peaceful game is now distracting if not infuriating. Finally, a suggestion for developers: increase contrast between the close-out “x” and the backdrop. You’ve just ruled out an audience with vision/contrast difficulties as you try to redirect audiences to new products. Desperate developers don’t deserve customer loyalty. Time to find a new game!
Mind boggling
by KaraKh. on 2017/10/01 16:07
I really enjoy this app. It makes you think! I play it when I'm frustrated to ease my mind and just focus on something different yet challenging. I've seen others say certain puzzles are not solvable but so far I haven't experienced that. It all in how you solve some of the puzzles... You'll need to go in order. Like I said, I love it. What I don’t like is that it’s 20 long puzzles before getting to the next level. That’s a bit much. I can see 10 but 20 is just too much and takes a while. Which sometimes makes me just close out because I don’t feel like going 20 rounds.
Fun game with questionable customer service
by DrJRW on 2019/01/23 11:47
Loved this game for years and had made a ton of progress (not easy!). Ran into a glitch and followed the “help” instructions for a fix which TOTALLY wiped out everything and started me from scratch as if I’d never played before. I was told there was nothing that could be done since I hadn’t connected the game to Facebook. Allegedly as a nice gesture customer service said they would restore my ad-free purchase...but then insisted I locate my purchase receipt in order for them to do that. Very annoyed that I followed their instructions and was asked to do more to plow through all my Apple receipts so they could do something nice as an apology.
Too many ads
by mrs nussbaum on 2018/12/08 18:34
I’ve been playing for a couple of years and really like the game, but now there are way too many ads. The unobtrusive persistent ad banner along the bottom is fine, but now ads interrupt in the middle of the game. Also, the holiday challenge and daily puzzle have five levels, and there are 30-second ads after almost every level-the ads are longer than it takes to solve the levels. Also, the game forces you to look at the “buy hints!” menu by blocking the screen. It’s obnoxious. On the positive side, the addition of the gold star words is great, it would be cool if you gave a free hint for getting all ten.
Fun game
by Delalulu on 2017/09/09 22:23
New problem, and my main complaint is, in struggling with Unicorn Level 11 and 12. I finally peeked at the cheats. The puzzles words/letters that I have are not the same as in the cheats. I figured out level 11 but now, I can't figure out level 12. So, I'm stuck. I cannot continue until level 12 is completed. Not happy, and there seems to be no help anywhere. My original complaint is when you have to go back because the words are not fitting in, you have to restart from the beginning. It would be nice if you could take one word off at a time.
Great workout for your brain!
by DaughterofChrist111 on 2017/12/02 03:39
I love challenges and always think they're fun! This game starts off very easy, but then it gets more difficult. Sometimes I get frustrated when I can't solve a level, but then when you do you feel like you've accomplished something big in your life:) This game is totally awesome and it's a great exercise for your brain! I love how you get hints for every level so it's fair game. Whenever you're bored, this is a game you should play to pass time. You won't regret it. I didn't. ❤️
Recent changes have ruined the game
by KC518 on 2018/09/30 00:14
This is a great game. My kids even love it, especially the special seasonal puzzles. Slowly they’ve been adding more and more commercials and it has basically ruined the experience. Now after every puzzle, and sometimes in between words within the same puzzle, there are 30 second commercial spots that cannot be bypassed. This means for a simple seasonal puzzle I sit through about 5 minutes of commercials for 2 minutes of game play. I know the developers have to get paid, and I didn’t have a problem seeing an ad now and then, but at this level the game is not playable and I don’t want my kids seeing all these ads. Will sadly be uninstalling. Shame because I really enjoyed the game.
same device, progress lost
by not-about-me on 2017/11/25 18:51
A recent required reset of my phone left me with a complete loss of WordBrain progress. I’m using the same device. So, per WordBrain documentation, I should just reinstall and pick up where I left off - WRONG! With the incessant advertising, one might assume the developers could afford development to track a single highest completed level index in correlation to the user’s Apple ID - again WRONG (never assume.) Be prepared to lose all game progress if you have to change your device or even reset the same device. I wish someone had steered me clear of this game up front. If you have not started playing this game, just move on and avoid all the future frustration. Connect to game center, not Facebook money grubbers!!!
Fun but discouraging
by C1ndyluhu on 2019/05/20 06:50
I’ve been playing this game for almost two years. It got progressively harder but I felt accomplished when I made it to 75% complete. Then they added a whole bunch of new levels! The higher levels are WAY harder than the previous levels, and they don’t accurately report the number of people who have complete the levels. I do like the game but it’s discouraging to work so hard to get to a high level only to be knocked back down a notch because they expanded the game.
A Real Brain Tease
by Ondy157 on 2018/12/15 04:08
This game challenges your intellectual ability more and more as the game progresses. You not only need to figure out the words, but also how to arrange them in the order the game demands. It’s a complex puzzle much like trying to figure out a winning chess move. The “hints” you can earn become more necessary as the game becomes more difficult. Not for the faint of heart or for those who give up easily. Really frustrating when you get stuck, but really satisfying when you get it right.
Hints
by Zerohints on 2019/09/15 20:33
You always were able to hints all throughout the days but lately they have not. I bought 200hints and got 200 hints and wasted them on the daily challenge puzzle thinking that would give some hints but it did not. So now working on the main game when you can use hints then just keep saying the video will be ready soon. What is up. I really enjoy your game but I am retiring and do not extra money to spend on hints. Please make them more plentiful again. Thanks.
Fantastic game, if only...
by Word Smyth on 2018/12/24 22:38
I love it and have also started to play WordBrain 2, which I also like very much. However, a couple of points 1. Recently you added ads that intrude on the game sometimes after each correct word. This can be very annoying especially if you need to refresh because some words can be satisfied with different sets of letters. 2. Because of 1 above and also independently, it would be nice if one could go back and remove one word at a time in reverse order, rather than having to restart from the top. 3. It would also be very nice if you can display words already found in dimmed form like you do in WordBrain 2. Thank you Waguih Boctor. New review. I took care of 1 by purchasing some hints, and you have implemented 3, thank you very much. It would be very much appreciated if you can also implement 2 above.
Challenging and Fun!
by ArichFL on 2017/08/30 14:15
I have been playing for several months now and continue to like this game. Sure, ads can be annoying, but they can be skipped fairly quickly. Plus hints can be earned by choosing to watch a brief add. And I like the occasional challenges that occur where you get to guess some smaller puzzles to earn extra hints. And, the library of puzzles is quite large. Lastly, I find the graphics and navigation to both be well done! This is my favorite word game!

I love playing WordBrain. It helps me to sharpen my ability to spell names correctly. It is not easy...but it is challenging. It keeps my mind more active and by doing this, I’ve heard this game helps to prevent Alzheimer’s. Thus, even though this game is not easy to play, I like the positive benefits of learning to sharpen my spelling ability and to prevent Alzheimer’s disease...these are only a few if it’s benefits. There are many more, which makes this game worth the time and energy it takes to play it!!!
Put the Words in Order of Completion
by Dejune33 on 2019/09/04 12:50
I enjoy playing the game and it definitely is a mental workout. However, some of the puzzles are incredibly difficult when you have no idea where to start. It would be helpful if the tiles were arranged in an order that wasn’t in conflict with how the words are developed to complete the puzzle. For example, if there’s a 7 letter word that must be discovered before I can successfully complete the 5 letter word, then the blank tiles for the 7 letter word should be placed before the blank tiles for the 5 letter word.
Update needs some tweaking
by Grammy928 on 2018/08/21 22:32
Been playing this game for a long time, but now with your recent update I am getting AD’S popping up that I had opted out (and paid for) from probably at least a year or more ago!! Please fix, they are most annoying!! Sent this review back in July 2018, after your update...here it is August 21, 2018 and I haven’t seen any changes. Really love playing, a few times everyday, but I AM REALLY TIRED of all these ads that I had all ready opted out of. PLEASE FIX!
Bug fix needed
by Horrah Happy on 2019/04/17 17:09
I’ve been playing this game for a number of years and I love the daily puzzle. The issue is that I travel a lot and realized every time I switch time zones it resets my daily streak to zero... I was on a 36 day streak and traveled to Utah, as soon as I landed it reset the daily puzzle which I’d already completed and told me I had a 0 day streak. Over the past few months it seems to happen every time I change time zones. Please fix this issue... Outside of that I love this game!
New IPad and lost hints
by Sewgood7 on 2018/08/24 00:36
I had to get a new iPad. When I logged into WordBrain, I saw that I had lost all my hard earned hints and was back down to level one. I was unaware of saving my points on Facebook. I emailed support and told them that I had lost my 103 hints. I could no longer get my IPad back from Apple to login into Facebook from that device. Support kindly restored my hints at 4 times the original amount. Now I can hopefully get back to where I left off. Thank you WordBrain support.

:-(
by uhuhuhuubvd on 2019/12/02 06:49
I really do like the game, but I have been “locked out” of the basic game for about a year now. Although I have solved the puzzle correctly, the game won’t advance to the next one. I have put in a help request, I have never gotten a response or fix to the problem. So, I just play the word of the day & periodic seasonal challenge.

Warning—you’ll have to buy hints.
Tired of wasting my money
by Me. Bear Lvr on 2019/11/16 10:11
I’ve spent lots of real dollars on this game for extra hints. After a certain point it’s hard to do the puzzles cuz you cannot use a consecutive hint in the first word (or any word), so you wind up using LOTS of hints just to get a puzzle started. You should be able to get “free hints” a few times per day, but I’ve been trying for 3 days straight just to get one free hint and message keeps saying “not available try later.” For 3 whole days not a single free hint. I’ve sent help messages before but got a stupid answer. I’m tired of spending money and asking for free hints, not getting any for days, and tired of asking app for help and not getting any. I requested my information, after I get it, I’m deleting this game. I’d rather spend my money on a game that isn’t this frustrating and app personnel will actually help to correct whatever is wrong with my “free” hints button. What’s sad is I’ve been playing this game for a couple years and they have been making money from me. I’m done!!! RESPONSE to your Response: Upon receiving your response today, I’m more determined now to delete your game than I was before. Your response claimed that I needed to update my version of the game as I am supposedly playing an older version. Well, if there was an update why don’t I have an update available in my apps update box? I don’t!! So before you tell me to update the game you should have an update available. The other games and apps I use periodically have updates and they all show up in the updates box. Second, I know how to contact your help center, as I already did and they claimed there is no problem and to keep trying. Duh!! If you bothered to read my first response you would know I already did it and got a stupid answer with no one even trying to help. I’m not stupid I know how to contact your help center. And third, I’m having the same problem that some others are having that just posted here recently, like the ads staying stuck and when I finally cancel after a few minutes, not seconds, no hint. So, I’m not the only one having issues. Your response to me was degrading. Finally, I requested the personal information that you collected on me, located in your privacy controls, and I was sent an email from you that was supposedly in a zip file, but I cannot open that file AT ALL. When I touch on the link absolutely nothing happens. And please don’t respond back insulting me on how to open a zip file. I’m not stupid!!! Your email with the file is bogus. Please just send the information to my email (not a zip file or any other bs file) and tell me what information you collected on me, as is my right to have. I’m so over this stupid drama.
Too many ads
by MikalaMarie💖 on 2019/11/15 23:41
This game is perfect and I love it so much, but sometimes the ads pop up consecutively and it can be annoying. All games have ads so it’s really not that bad but sometimes when you’re in the zone it can be aggravating to wait a whole minute to be able to close out of an ad 😅😕

I have been playing WordBrain for a very long time. It has always been one of my favorites!!! Now, however, when I watch an ad to get a hint has the ad WILL NOT GO AWAY!!! It, apparently, is trying to force me to go to the product site! Flashlights, body building, car wax!!!! I WILL NOT EVER EVER BE HELD HOSTAGE AND FINALLY CAVE IN BECAUSE THE AD REFUSES TO GO AWAY. I think this is so disappointing!!! I actually left the page up while I went to the store and when I got home it was still there!! No hint — No playing WordBrain!

Playing Protocol
by MickiMaio on 2019/11/14 01:47
It appears this game is more concerned with the order of the letters than getting the actual words correct. If I get the word, why can’t I solve the game. I need to make sure the letters are in the right order. The game is more a trick than really focused on word brain!
This game is messed up
by Nsndosn on 2019/11/13 20:01
Ive had it for like two years and played every day and today it told me that I used all 32 of the hints I accumulated on a puzzle I wasnt even up to yet. So I deleted it.

Challenging But
by M_Furby on 2019/11/11 03:57
The software has several,glitches. So you can watch videos for clues but sometimes the videos get stuck. So you have to watch ads (that last forever! Or maybe 30 seconds plus another 5!). The ads have a tendency to force you to the App Store to buy the game being advertised. So it’s a little frustrating with the ads and glitches. I just like to play because it forces me to think outside the box and be creative with words and not lock into the words I use most frequently.

Ridiculous amount of ads
by jnbcd on 2019/11/09 21:50
I get that free versions of games are going to come with ads, but this is ridiculous. I had a previous version of this game a year or two ago and it wasn’t a problem. Now an ad (usually around 15-30 seconds) will pop up after EVERY. SINGLE. PUZZLE. It’s absurd and a colossal waste of time. Definitely not worth playing anymore.

Fun but puzzle of the day
by LK==== on 2019/11/06 12:14
I like the game. I enjoy that you’ve added more events. And I was really enjoying puzzle of the day—except the streak resets if you travel. I’m not sure if it’s because I played while not connected to a network, the time zone change, or something else. But it’s really frustrating to have my streak reset so frequently, when I’m playing everyday. Latest update has broken something so you can’t see puzzle boards on iPhones. Nothing shows for the board in both daily game and standard game set.
Puzzles don’t open after last update !!!!

by midgemarg on 2019/11/06 01:46
Good game. Would prefer that the hints were consecutive to a word. You did a great upgrade when a word you found would stay in memory on the board even if you had to close out the game momentarily.

I found this game stimulating but am not a fan of the scoring system. Many times I find words but get no credit for them. And there is no system for earning hints. They must be purchased.
Not fun
by sggrx12 on 2019/10/30 02:34
In a 7x7 letter grid the chance of you guessing which 4 letter word they want can be time consuming and aggravating. There are many words available but you have to guess which one they want. It’s their way of making money because you use a hint then you’re screwed unless you buy more hints.

I could deal with the ads - just wait til they finish then close them. But NOW, after EVERY game, it opens to App Store! I have to close out of it and open the game again. I loved your holiday puzzles and daily puzzles, but it’s just not worth it! GOOD-BYE

A good challenge, but....
by Bftsplk on 2019/10/19 23:08
I sometimes wish the game made use of a bigger, more erudite vocabulary. Secondly, if (for example) the word you were supposed to choose was “smile,” it would seem appropriate to reward the player if he/she instead chooses “miles,” or even “limes.” And to state the obvious, if I’ve already paid for the game at the App Store, why the hell should I have to pay an additional $5.00 just to remove the obnoxious advertisements that clutter up the screen? I resisted upgrading the game for years for fear of being deluged by unwanted ads. Now that I’ve upgraded it, I wish I could go back to the earlier, ad-free version. The internet already has WAY too many ads, and your company has copped out by including this junk along with its software. You blew it, period.

I like how if you do ten bonus words you get a shiny star, but why not give us something more useful? Like, if we did our ten bonus words, give us a hint or something. That way some of us don’t have to go through not having them all the time.

Fun game
by DDnOC on 2019/10/17 13:37
It’s a fun game but ads are repetitive and annoying. Especially the sound. They are often loud and lately when I mute it the sounds keeps coming back on so I have to keep finding the mute that moves from corner to corner to press it. It’s a bit stupid to have to play along with this unwanted “game” for an ad I wasn’t interested in in the first place. **UPDATE: it also does not accurately track progress. It supposedly keeps a record of consecutive days the puzzle of the day is solved. There are times I know that I have solved the previous day but it doesn’t record it.
Ads nearly ruin the gameplay
by Yours truly_a on 2019/10/16 04:13
I just got back into playing this game and still enjoy it but the ads are awful. Even with my phone muted every ad plays at full volume, seriously limiting when and where I can play. I considered paying to get rid of ads, but it’s absurdly expensive. And if isn’t even a one-time fee, it’s something like $5 every few months. No thanks.

On numerous occasions I have swiped a correct word over and over and it does not accept it. After I finally use a hint it will accept that same word. Not fair to force someone to buy hints (I refuse to do that) and the ads are out of control in all apps. I have deleted games I love to play just because the ads are overwhelming.
Great exercise!

This game is a fun way to keep my mind sharp and busy. It’s a productive way to spend time.
Frustrating!
by Letternut2 on 2019/10/10 18:47
Needs bug fixes badly. Watching video is supposed to give player a free hint but after watching video the screen goes black and no hint. I also Played bonus game for hints by collecting fall leaves, only to find now they are not free anymore.

Lost my level and hints
by jscelzo on 2019/10/07 02:36
I lost my iPad and when I got a new one I lost my level and hints. I was at a level that only had 1 other person who had solved the puzzles and it has sent me way back. Any help you can give is appreciated. I also had no ads on my games and this is very annoying. Thank you, Jane Scelzo
No longer enjoyable
by ptcpm on 2019/10/06 07:26
I use to play this a few years ago and enjoyed it. I downloaded it again today and have found that for every puzzle solved, I have to watch 2 ads. I understand that is how they make money but if every time I finish ONE I have to watch, wait and click to close 2 ads, it is no longer fun or worth the trouble.

Review for WordBrain
by Geema JPS on 2019/10/04 03:23
Although I try to solve each puzzle without using hints, I usually give myself the first letter of each word. I feel absolutely brilliant when I solve each word and SUPERBRILLIANT when the whole puzzle comes together. I am thrilled to be using my vocabulary and proud as I progress forward! This is a terrific game to play to keep your brain sharp!

Could Use a Tweak
by Gdubyall on 2017/10/03 01:35
I recently started playing this game upon a recommendation from a friend. For some reason, the game wouldn't come up in the App Store. My friend deleted her app to try to find it again and she couldn't. Happily we finally were able to locate it. So it would behoove someone to make it easier to find the app. The other suggestion/complaint I have is that the game explanation/rules should be clearer on being able to go back and "undo" the game when a word is solved but the resulting letters are arranged in such a way that making the remaining word is impossible; e.g. One or two of the remaining letters is disconnected from the rest and, therefore, impossible to form a word. I used a few hints before I finally realized what was happening. Other than that, I'm very happy with this game. It's a nice break from the frustration of 4-suit Spider Solitaire. 2017 update. If this game could move with new hardware, it would be perfect. I am up to a very high level in this game but got a new iPad and the game won’t transfer over. As a result, I have to begin all over again. Not fun. So now I have to keep the old iPad for the sole purpose of playing the game and not losing my position. There should be a better way. The Apple people don’t support this app.
my opinion...𝑤𝑜𝑟𝑑𝑏𝑟𝑎𝑖𝑛
by Ølivia🖤 on 2019/02/25 04:51
I have been playing wordbrain since November of 2017. It’s extremely addicting once you get to the harder levels. And when I say hard, I mean, hard. These levels have you racking your brain. So you may think, “oh. I guess I should use a hint.” Well, you don’t have many. Hints are expensive, and I’m not spending $5 on 15 hints. What I DO like is that every time you change brains, you get hints. Basically in this game you start off in a snail brain, and theres a number of levels in there. As you progress you get a mermaid brain, unicorn, and even alien. These all have levels in them. But once you progress from snail to frog, you get 7 or so hints. This makes the game easier and makes me want to level up more, knowing my hard work will pay off when I get to harder levels. Ads are a big thing in this game. I don’t like finishing a level and getting 2 ads. And they aren’t those 4 second ads, either. You get those rarely. The most common ads are the 25-30 second ones. And they are 1 or 2 after each level. And if you have been trying the level for a while, halfway though an ad pops up! But that’s my opinion on wordbrain. I hope a developer will respond because I’d love to discuss an issues I’ve been having where I watch a video for a hint and I do not receive it. Please fix this!!!
Suddenly too many ads
by rondelagua on 2018/07/10 04:57
This is an engaging game, one that I play almost every day. All games/levels are solvable with increasing difficulty as levels are reached. At Minotaur level word difficulty and complexity increases dramatically. I don’t mind sitting through the ads to gain free hints. I’ve gathered well over 600 by doing so, even having made purchases from some of them. BUT...something changed a few weeks ago and now there are constant ads. Every time you form the first word (maybe second) of a level an ad pops up and I often see no way to skip it. Sometimes they’re short and you can close them out after a few seconds or so; while inconvenient to the rhythm, I can deal with that. But too often you’re stuck with a 30 second ad, often for something I have no interest in. And if you restart the game you have to go through the same crapola again and again. I had to watch some Empires and Galaxies ad or some such thing four times! in just a few minutes! Mid game even more of these unwanted ads pop up so there is constant interruption. This will make me stop playing the game. Which means I’ll no longer watch the ads I choose to for hints and won’t be looking at any of those products. Change this!!
Constant ads killed this game
by frustrated_by_ads on 2018/11/15 16:43
I have been a long time player of this game (over 2 years). It has helped pass the time on my relatively short train commute. However, the recent changes that give you a 30 second ad (i.e Angry Birds), that takes over the screen and audio after virtually every game action has rendered the game unplayable. I would play this game while listening to a podcast. After each 30 second video ad i would have to navigate over to the podcast to relaunch, then back to the game to solve a word, then have to sit through another 30 video ad for Angry Birds, then back to the podcast player to resume playback, then back to the game, and over and over again in a non-stop loop of back and forth between the game and podcast player. I get it that the game makers want you to pay them to make the ads go away but just keep this in mind when you decide to get started with this game. You may play for a while without the constant ad interruptions, but eventually you will be faced with only 2 options, either: a) pay them to make the ads go away temporarily, or b) quit the game entirely because the way it is now, with the constant ad interruptions, it is not an enjoyable way to pass the time.
Great game, but...
by Highway35 on 2018/10/19 04:53
I started this game 2 years ago, and liked it instantly. I played it until I almost finished all the platforms and then an update occurred and I suddenly had more levels to complete. I finished all the levels and waited for another update so I could play it some more. But that’s when the game took a downturn for me. With the latest level there are so many ads you can’t enjoy the game. Every time I reset the puzzle, I get an ad of 15 to 30 seconds. Every time I let my screen go to sleep and wake it up, I get another ad. Even if I play constantly for a few minutes, my game will be interrupted by an ad. Some of the ads can be canceled at the end by clicking on an X in the upper corner, but sometimes there is no X and you have to figure out where to click to get out of the ad. And still another ad requires you to make a selection in the ad. Even though I really like the game and the improvements made to it, I will be deleting it and hope that when I receive additional levels of the game on Wordbrain 2, it does not have the increased number of ads in it.
Now unplayable. Nonstop ads and shady ad tactics.
by Mackenzie h r on 2019/07/19 01:46
This game was once our family obsession. Had beaten all the levels. Came back after two years, excited to play all the new levels and see all the updates, and it is essentially unplayable. So. Many. Ads. All the time. And with shady, money grubbing tactics. Overriding your mute settings, hidden or no x to close out the ad, misleading buttons in ads, longer ads than gameplay, ads popping up mid-play, just to name a few. At one point in time, I would have gladly paid for an ad-free version, but now there is no way I’m sending them any money. Their advertising tactics and the advertisers they work with are straight up the lowest of the low. So now, not only will I not support the advertisers, but I have no interest in supporting the developers because they have committed to this scammy revenue path. Deleting instead. Do yourself a favor and don’t waste your time on this app. It’s everything that’s wrong with in-app advertising. You’ll spend more time watching ads than playing, and it wont take long to go from “I should pay for the ad-free pack” to “this is beyond making a living, this is advertising extortion and I refuse to support it.”
Fun game, but getting repetitive
by PianoSue on 2019/06/04 18:48
I’m enjoying this game, but feel there could be a couple of improvements that would make it more fun and fulfilling. As the levels increase, I expected the hidden words to increase in difficulty, too, but they haven’t. They are still pretty basic vocabulary words, with quite a bit of repetition (I swear SLIPPERS is every 5th puzzle!) I think the scrambling has gotten more complex as levels have proceeded, but not the words themselves. The "star bonus" words are especially simple and repetitive (TIN is always an option if those letters are in the puzzle). What advantage is there to earning those stars, anyway? How about a free hint if a player finds all 10 words? I wish that players could skip to higher levels on their own and try those puzzles instead of working their way up, as sometimes 20 puzzles per level is too many. I wish the game would give a free hint after every 5 puzzles solved instead of 3 hints after solving 20.
You can get stranded with no recourse
by Hootive on 2017/09/13 00:16
While I've enjoyed playing this game and have gotten almost 2/3 of the way through the game, I got to a puzzle that literally defies the assertion in the help section of the game that "every level can be solved". I tried every combination possible to get a final word, but there was no way to configure the letters to spell the word "sphere", which I confirmed by spending six hints. I literally gave up and looked on line at a solutions site. Not only is my particular puzzle configured completely differently in the online version, "sphere" is not even one of the words for the solution to that level. I emailed the developer because they have made mistakes before and corrected them, according to the solutions site, but so far no response. And they don't even give you a chance to "buy" your way around a puzzle--surprising, given they can really run up the money when you pay for more hints. Oh well...
Challenging
by Spikefromthepast on 2017/12/31 18:54
I just started playing and really enjoy this game. I wish you could earn more hints, as I find I need to use them more as the puzzles get bigger. I also wish you didn’t have to complete 20 games before getting some extra hints. Other than that I really enjoy playing. My one complaint is that when I first started playing you could get two free hints a day by playing a video. Those seem to have gone away, and Now you only get a hint by completely 20 levels, and as you progress further into the game if obviously gets much more challenging. I have bought hints once , when they were on sale, but I don’t normally spend money on games. Why did these free hints go away?
Addictive word game but update ruined
by MsLCC on 2018/01/29 16:57
This is an addictive word game & great fun. But I got to the Minotaur level and with the last update I did on my IPhone with the 11.2.5 patch I could no longer see the puzzle. There were the blanks at the bottom but no letters. So I deleted it, reloaded it and started over from the beginning. Not happy. To add insult to injury the bonus hints wouldn’t accumulate beyond 10. No matter how many levels I go and how many hints it says I’ve added, the hint level stays at 10. I used 2 just to see if that made a difference and it doesn’t. It is stuck. Now I have 8 and they don’t accumulate. So bottom line is, the game is working but is still buggy. Not that the hints are needed at the levels I’m having to do over from the beginning but it’s disappointing. I don’t know if it’s the iPhone update or the app update but they are not compatible. Cannot speak for other devices or platforms.
I like it but there seems to be a glitch
by DeeBergz on 2018/10/21 03:51
I do really like this game but I just lost a bunch of hints because it seems with the sale they just vanished. I had 30+ hints earlier today I’ve played a few puzzles and I can’t have used more than five (I really try not to use too many hints) and then when I went to play again just now it said I had zero and advertised the sale. I just wonder how many times that’s happened and to how many people. Because I remember wondering when I’d used all my hints once before when I signed on to play after not playing for awhile and thinking how lucky I was there was a sale and I feel like that may have been another time all my hints vanished. So I do like the game I just don’t want it eating my money when I haven’t actually used up all my hints.
Great game held back by a few major issues
by rmreed98 on 2019/05/27 18:32
I’ve played Wordbrain for years, it’s a very fun game overall and I do enjoy it. However, there are two issues with it that really frustrate me. Firstly, the ads are constant and intrusive, sometimes I won’t even be able to close an ad without having to quit and restart the app entirely. However, I understand that ads are just a part of games nowadays. My main issue with Wordbrain is that, as someone who often needs to take flights and move across timezones, I can’t hold a daily challenge streak without it resetting every time I go on a plane. It’s extremely frustrating to spend weeks on keeping up with the daily challenges, only for it to be reset to zero once I arrive in a new time zone. Not sure if it’s a bug or not, but it’s really killed my desire to keep up with the challenges.
No Pressure
by Outatheshute on 2019/02/20 04:40
I can play this game at my own pace, like Boggle without a clock, or Scrabble without a score. No penalty for wrong words, as many tries as I want to solve each puzzle. Great interface with no need to type. Not addictive, yet, and a great way to spend time between naps😏 There are a lot more ads than when I initially started, but the quality of the puzzles are worth the wasted time in forced ad viewing. Without the free hint per 30-second ad view, I would probably put this baby down and do something else, but being able to accumulate hints for free has helped me to get all the way through Kraken, and I have hints left over, so I guess I’ll keep going.
On it’s way to being a cash grab...
by Psruggr on 2018/06/25 00:24
With the last couple of updates, ads and deal pop ups are being shoved in your face a lot. The game was no doubt 5 stars before this. Ads don’t just pop up b/t puzzles now, but also once you find the first word of a puzzle, you get an ad. As well, each puzzle you open, you get a deal pop up that covers up the blank words. You are forced to open it and see the deals on hint packages to be able to clear the pop up. But if you’re like me, you contact MAG. A few days later, I received this email: “Thank you for contacting us. We apologize for the inconvenience caused. We understand that you are getting Ads more frequently in the game. We have escalated this issue to our product team and they will surely fix it incoming updates. Meanwhile, if you want you can purchase any one of the hints pack available for sale in-game, this will convert your game to an Ad-free version. Additionally, if you have any other query regarding WordBrain, please let us know!” So there you go. Cash grab. I fully support those behind the game being able to make a living. However, backhanded cash grabbing is not ok. Just offer an ad free option for $3-$5. This is what ruined Angry Birds...and this game is one step closer to it.
Exercise Your Mind
by #1Gamer83 on 2017/09/18 07:48
This is a great game to mentally challenge yourself. You have to plan your words out because there is only one way to solve the puzzle. Although the app uses common, everyday words, it's amazing how challenging the levels can get. It is tempting to use your hints, but keep in mind that you only have so many of them. God sent his son, Jesus to die on the cross for your sins. If you would like to be saved from hell, you must admit that you are a sinner. Then, by faith, you must believe in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Next, it's a matter of confessing all your sins, asking Him to come into your heart, and making you a new creature.
A good challenge, but....
by Bftsplk on 2019/10/19 23:08
I sometimes wish the game made use of a bigger, more erudite vocabulary. Secondly, if (for example) the word you were supposed to choose was “smile,” it would seem appropriate to reward the player if he/she instead chooses “miles,” or even “limes.” And to state the obvious, if I’ve already paid for the game at the App Store, why the hell should I have to pay an additional $5.00 just to remove the obnoxious advertisements that clutter up the screen? I resisted upgrading the game for years for fear of being deluged by unwanted ads. Now that I’ve upgraded it, I wish I could go back to the earlier, ad-free version. The internet already has WAY too many ads, and your company has copped out by including this junk along with its software. You blew it, period.
Pleasantly Addictive
by Michele Rosen on 2017/11/24 15:16
Many addictive games are mindless, but this one is mind -stretching. It keeps testing my word skills yet is fun. I also like that there is no time limit so I can be stumped for a while yet come back later and succeed. Update Thanksgiving 2017: A terrible restriction has been resolved and I am very thankful. It used to be that I could only play on my iPhone and progress would be lost if I switched to another device or even if I bought a replacement phone. Well, today that is fixed! Progress can be saved using Facebook and synched across all devices. And I am free to buy a new phone. Thank you WordBrain Team.
Great game but a few problems...
by Greasyrasta on 2017/11/21 02:27
I think this is a great educational game for children to get there brains going. But there are very few problems I need to discuss, which I think will effect your app greatly. 1. Innapropeat language. I have played some of the puzzles and realized there is innapropiate language used, such as sex, hell, devil, and cuss words. I think as a app for young children this needs to be fixed. 2. Too many adds! I don't understand why there is an add every time you complete a level. Every single time I have failed or completed a level, you will give me a 25 second add. I constantly get tired of this when I am trying to play a relaxing game that multiple adds come up every few minutes. 3. Glitches ALOT I think that if your trying to have a fun app where you can relax, this is good if you have a GOOD VERSION. My version in my IOS device glitches constantly and makes me start over levels. The reason I give this three stars is because i think it is a good app but of all the things I stated above. Sincerely, The congress or app ratings, Olivia Massad Lilara.
Ads cover content
by Edonc9147 on 2019/05/06 20:20
I gave 5 stars because I enjoy the game and think it deserves that rating. I do not enjoy the ads that cover the content. When I report those ads, with the hope that I can continue playing, Google removes the ad but the removal banner remains over the ad and then another ad pops up to take its place still covering the content. Petco is the ad currently intruding on my enjoyment of WordBrain. My only option to continue playing wordbrain is to close the game completely and reopen. It does not encourage me to run to petco to keep my pets happy. Can you stop ads that cover game content and hold me hostage to that intrusion?
The words changed!
by Psmythe on 2017/09/07 17:08
After this update the word changed! I was in the middle of Dinosaur 17 and installed the latest update. Now the words are different and I have to start over. I looked at Dino 16 and they've changed, too. Are they all changed? Do I start all over? Did you do this so the cheat sheets won't work? Update: per dev email, the changes are due to bug fixes and player feedback. Thanks for the reply! So I have feedback: can you move the hints button to the tope of the screen? I keep hitting it by accident. Or maybe add an "Are you sure" button so I can cancel after the accidental click. Thanks.
Frustrating failures of your letter arrangements.
by NURSEGAMALOT on 2018/04/23 03:56
Your game has some frustrating flaws in the arrangements of the letters making it impossible to complete the spelling on level five with “melon” and “well” not being organized so you can spell out “WELL” at all. The W is in the middle left square, one of the L’s was in the lower left square (Just below the W) with the E to the right of the first L and the second L to the right of the E. The placement of the E diagonally to the lower left of the W means you have to choose one of the L’s, with the result that you lose access to the second L on the other side of the E. I ran back through it again with the same result. The arrangement of the letters does not allow you to spell WELL either before or after you spell out in MELON. Noticed some other reviews mentioning similar issues, but decided to try anyway. Too bad! Appeared promising. NURSEGAMALOT
Love it, but!
by OP Senior on 2018/03/21 13:43
The last few times I have gotten the icon for video, I clicked it on, watched the video until it was over and then hit the button to stop it; it goes away and I don't get my free hint! Very frustrating! Same thing just happened tonight. And it is happened like Saturday night as well. Extremely frustrating. I do not understand. I don't think I'm doing anything wrong, but when I get back to the word brain page there is no hint!!! I would really like to know why. Once again, just now, when I hit the button to watch a video to get a free hint, it just goes right back to the game and does not let me watch a video or give me a chance to get a free hint.
Fixes to make game better
by Aprilcarma on 2017/10/16 20:10
I love the game very much. What I don't like is the fact that I never get my free hints when I reach a level. It says I get 3, but never register. Also I don't like the fact they you try and force people to buy hints. I think if you did a daily spin where you could earn free hints like candy crush does would be a nice feature . I may have to delete your game do to the fact that I can't be buying hints all the time. I also think you should have the ability to pick where you want a clue. You have it designed to make you waste your hints.
Challenging and fun, sometimes annoying
by Lil Spunky 1 on 2017/09/12 13:14
The only part I don't care for and have found it very annoying is when I find two words that fit the puzzle and complete it fully, same amount of letters, connected and works with the swipes and the game has very specific words that are predetermined. Of course, I just relook at it and find the ones that the game says is right but it's annoying when the game doesn't calculate for the possibility that there are other words that could also solve the puzzle according to the prerequisite of one 4 letter word and one 5 letter word. ie... bread vs beard... both 5 letters both usually attainable by letter connection.
Kinda Fun game. BUT......
by 12shoestringer on 2019/01/08 15:17
Starts out very easy so you get use to how the game works. Than gets more complicated and tricky- that's the fun, However, no pay game has gotten VERY annoying with all the adds and they are constant and long. My iPad and iPhone for some reason aren't connected so I'm at two totally different levels depending upon which one I'm using. Added the daily challenge and "Hidden Words". But so what?!?You do them for nothing. I collect stars for what reason? And my daily challenge went two weeks and received nothing for it and the re-do is slower so you use hints for no reward. DO NoT use up hints on daily challenge it's a waste. I use to think this was a 5 or 6 star game, now it's 2 1/2.
In love 😍 😝😝😝
by 👼🏿👼🏿👼🏿👼🏿👼🏿 on 2018/10/05 00:18
I love this game so much but it is so hard maybe if they gave us daily hints it would be a little bit easier but other than that I completely love the game and I want more like it. I also want to recommend a really good app called Duolingo I love it so much it helps learn new languages and it is super fun and easy. I also love fishdom it is a really good game I love it so much. But I really love this game a lot and I hope to beat it. 🦀I am on crab right now. Pray for me please!!!!!i love playing and talking to the makers of the games I play. They are really nice. I live in Texas. Peace ✌🏼 out yall👩🏿‍💻🧜🏿‍♀️🧚🏿‍♀️🧚🏼‍♀️🧜🏼‍♀️
Addicting… but the ads —
by All the nicknames I wanted are taken on 2018/07/28 06:05
EDIT: after the most recent update, I can’t even enjoy playing. I find a word, it plays an ad; I finish a level, it plays an ad; I switch to another app for five seconds and come right back, it plays an ad; I reset a level, it plays an ad. Almost NONE of these ads have the option to skip them, so for every step I take in the game, I have to sit through 20-30 seconds of advertisement. I understand having ads in a free game, but this is ridiculous!! Please fix it! I love word games, and after my husband asked my help on a level of this game, I decided to try it for myself. After downloading, I played for two hours straight before I realized it.
Good game
by jan stone on 2017/12/24 04:59
I really like playing this game because it makes me think quite a great deal. It can be frustrating sometimes however when you can’t find the words. But then that’s part of the game. The one thing that is A little more than frustrating is that it often doesn’t seem to give you clues when you have a right to have them. I have even had a few times when it has me watch an ad and then it doesn’t award me the clue which was to go along with watching the ad. It happened 11 times in a row actually at one time when I was playing Otherwise, I truly do really enjoy this game.
Easy at first, but just you wait!
by Swampgirl9 on 2018/07/23 15:52
My brother recommended this app to my Mom and me. I admit to having the app on my iPhone for nearly a year before paying any real attention to it. Then I rediscovered it on my Mom’s iPad. She was many “levels” into the game, and the layouts were 12x12, continuing to increase in size and difficulty, and no longer 3x3 or 4x4. She reviewed the new challenges with me, and I played a couple with her. I am now completely hooked. I thought it wouldn’t be as fun on my iPhone 6S. Wrong!!!! Size doesn’t matter 😲🤐 🤭. So enjoy! It keeps your brain limber and it’s fun!
Love the game, but programming is inconsistent
by Domino255 on 2017/11/25 16:22
Great game that gets more difficult as you progress. Hints are important. Be patient and save them! But how hints are received is inconsistent. The game used to let me watch two advertisements to get two hints a day. Now, nothing. My wife never got the adds and therefore didn't get the hints. Side games allow us collect more hints during holidays/special times of year, but once, after playing a side game, I received no reward. Fix these issues, be consistent, and they've got a perfect game!
Some disappointment
by kherm1 on 2017/11/02 00:23
I love this game, however four new levels were added about a week ago (witch, pumpking, reaper, genie), and there’s a glitch somewhere. I’ve completed all of the WITCH level, got 3 hints for completing, and went on to PUMPKING. I’ve completed 7 or 8 of this level, and even though I get advanced to the next puzzle, if I close the game, and reopen it I’m taken back to the 20th puzzle in the previous level it won’t allow me to go where I was, and all my hints show up, but the puzzles don’t show up finished. I have to start at #1 again in the level. Retry annoying. I’ll wait until there’s an update.
WAY TOO many ads now...
by 123xoxo456 on 2018/06/25 18:24
Use to enjoy but now there are a TON of ads. Yes, they need to make money. But, whereas ads used to appear between rounds, they now start with first moves of the game and then continue, often interrupting plays—multiple times. Also, I pity those who have difficulty with flashing elements; the lightbulb in upper right now flashes continuously, coaxing you to recommend friends. No chance with this present version. Coupled with flashing, hard-to-close ads, a once peaceful game is now distracting if not infuriating. Finally, a suggestion for developers: increase contrast between the close-out “x” and the backdrop. You’ve just ruled out an audience with vision/contrast difficulties as you try to redirect audiences to new products. Desperate developers don’t deserve customer loyalty. Time to find a new game!
Mind boggling
by KaraKh. on 2017/10/01 16:07
I really enjoy this app. It makes you think! I play it when I'm frustrated to ease my mind and just focus on something different yet challenging. I've seen others say certain puzzles are not solvable but so far I haven't experienced that. It all in how you solve some of the puzzles... You'll need to go in order. Like I said, I love it. What I don’t like is that it’s 20 long puzzles before getting to the next level. That’s a bit much. I can see 10 but 20 is just too much and takes a while. Which sometimes makes me just close out because I don’t feel like going 20 rounds.
Fun game with questionable customer service
by DrJRW on 2019/01/23 11:47
Loved this game for years and had made a ton of progress (not easy!). Ran into a glitch and followed the “help” instructions for a fix which TOTALLY wiped out everything and started me from scratch as if I’d never played before. I was told there was nothing that could be done since I hadn’t connected the game to Facebook. Allegedly as a nice gesture customer service said they would restore my ad-free purchase...but then insisted I locate my purchase receipt in order for them to do that. Very annoyed that I followed their instructions and was asked to do more to plow through all my Apple receipts so they could do something nice as an apology.
Too many ads
by mrs nussbaum on 2018/12/08 18:34
I’ve been playing for a couple of years and really like the game, but now there are way too many ads. The unobtrusive persistent ad banner along the bottom is fine, but now ads interrupt in the middle of the game. Also, the holiday challenge and daily puzzle have five levels, and there are 30-second ads after almost every level-the ads are longer than it takes to solve the levels. Also, the game forces you to look at the “buy hints!” menu by blocking the screen. It’s obnoxious. On the positive side, the addition of the gold star words is great, it would be cool if you gave a free hint for getting all ten.
Fun game
by Delalulu on 2017/09/09 22:23
New problem, and my main complaint is, in struggling with Unicorn Level 11 and 12. I finally peeked at the cheats. The puzzles words/letters that I have are not the same as in the cheats. I figured out level 11 but now, I can't figure out level 12. So, I'm stuck. I cannot continue until level 12 is completed. Not happy, and there seems to be no help anywhere. My original complaint is when you have to go back because the words are not fitting in, you have to restart from the beginning. It would be nice if you could take one word off at a time.
Great workout for your brain!
by DaughterofChrist111 on 2017/12/02 03:39
I love challenges and always think they're fun! This game starts off very easy, but then it gets more difficult. Sometimes I get frustrated when I can't solve a level, but then when you do you feel like you've accomplished something big in your life:) This game is totally awesome and it's a great exercise for your brain! I love how you get hints for every level so it's fair game. Whenever you're bored, this is a game you should play to pass time. You won't regret it. I didn't. ❤️
Recent changes have ruined the game
by KC518 on 2018/09/30 00:14
This is a great game. My kids even love it, especially the special seasonal puzzles. Slowly they’ve been adding more and more commercials and it has basically ruined the experience. Now after every puzzle, and sometimes in between words within the same puzzle, there are 30 second commercial spots that cannot be bypassed. This means for a simple seasonal puzzle I sit through about 5 minutes of commercials for 2 minutes of game play. I know the developers have to get paid, and I didn’t have a problem seeing an ad now and then, but at this level the game is not playable and I don’t want my kids seeing all these ads. Will sadly be uninstalling. Shame because I really enjoyed the game.
same device, progress lost
by not-about-me on 2017/11/25 18:51
A recent required reset of my phone left me with a complete loss of WordBrain progress. I’m using the same device. So, per WordBrain documentation, I should just reinstall and pick up where I left off - WRONG! With the incessant advertising, one might assume the developers could afford development to track a single highest completed level index in correlation to the user’s Apple ID - again WRONG (never assume.) Be prepared to lose all game progress if you have to change your device or even reset the same device. I wish someone had steered me clear of this game up front. If you have not started playing this game, just move on and avoid all the future frustration. Connect to game center, not Facebook money grubbers!!!
Fun but discouraging
by C1ndyluhu on 2019/05/20 06:50
I’ve been playing this game for almost two years. It got progressively harder but I felt accomplished when I made it to 75% complete. Then they added a whole bunch of new levels! The higher levels are WAY harder than the previous levels, and they don’t accurately report the number of people who have complete the levels. I do like the game but it’s discouraging to work so hard to get to a high level only to be knocked back down a notch because they expanded the game.
A Real Brain Tease
by Ondy157 on 2018/12/15 04:08
This game challenges your intellectual ability more and more as the game progresses. You not only need to figure out the words, but also how to arrange them in the order the game demands. It’s a complex puzzle much like trying to figure out a winning chess move. The “hints” you can earn become more necessary as the game becomes more difficult. Not for the faint of heart or for those who give up easily. Really frustrating when you get stuck, but really satisfying when you get it right.
Hints
by Zerohints on 2019/09/15 20:33
You always were able to hints all throughout the days but lately they have not. I bought 200hints and got 200 hints and wasted them on the daily challenge puzzle thinking that would give some hints but it did not. So now working on the main game when you can use hints then just keep saying the video will be ready soon. What is up. I really enjoy your game but I am retiring and do not extra money to spend on hints. Please make them more plentiful again. Thanks.
Fantastic game, if only...
by Word Smyth on 2018/12/24 22:38
I love it and have also started to play WordBrain 2, which I also like very much. However, a couple of points 1. Recently you added ads that intrude on the game sometimes after each correct word. This can be very annoying especially if you need to refresh because some words can be satisfied with different sets of letters. 2. Because of 1 above and also independently, it would be nice if one could go back and remove one word at a time in reverse order, rather than having to restart from the top. 3. It would also be very nice if you can display words already found in dimmed form like you do in WordBrain 2. Thank you Waguih Boctor. New review. I took care of 1 by purchasing some hints, and you have implemented 3, thank you very much. It would be very much appreciated if you can also implement 2 above.
Challenging and Fun!
by ArichFL on 2017/08/30 14:15
I have been playing for several months now and continue to like this game. Sure, ads can be annoying, but they can be skipped fairly quickly. Plus hints can be earned by choosing to watch a brief add. And I like the occasional challenges that occur where you get to guess some smaller puzzles to earn extra hints. And, the library of puzzles is quite large. Lastly, I find the graphics and navigation to both be well done! This is my favorite word game!
WordBrain Robot
by Kristi Jensen on 2019/01/01 10:42
I love playing WordBrain. It helps me to sharpen my ability to spell names correctly. It is not easy...but it is challenging. It keeps my mind more active and by doing this, I’ve heard this game helps to prevent Alzheimer’s. Thus, even though this game is not easy to play, I like the positive benefits of learning to sharpen my spelling ability and to prevent Alzheimer’s disease...these are only a few if it’s benefits. There are many more, which makes this game worth the time and energy it takes to play it!!!
Put the Words in Order of Completion
by Dejune33 on 2019/09/04 12:50
I enjoy playing the game and it definitely is a mental workout. However, some of the puzzles are incredibly difficult when you have no idea where to start. It would be helpful if the tiles were arranged in an order that wasn’t in conflict with how the words are developed to complete the puzzle. For example, if there’s a 7 letter word that must be discovered before I can successfully complete the 5 letter word, then the blank tiles for the 7 letter word should be placed before the blank tiles for the 5 letter word.
Update needs some tweaking
by Grammy928 on 2018/08/21 22:32
Been playing this game for a long time, but now with your recent update I am getting AD’S popping up that I had opted out (and paid for) from probably at least a year or more ago!! Please fix, they are most annoying!! Sent this review back in July 2018, after your update...here it is August 21, 2018 and I haven’t seen any changes. Really love playing, a few times everyday, but I AM REALLY TIRED of all these ads that I had all ready opted out of. PLEASE FIX!
Bug fix needed
by Horrah Happy on 2019/04/17 17:09
I’ve been playing this game for a number of years and I love the daily puzzle. The issue is that I travel a lot and realized every time I switch time zones it resets my daily streak to zero... I was on a 36 day streak and traveled to Utah, as soon as I landed it reset the daily puzzle which I’d already completed and told me I had a 0 day streak. Over the past few months it seems to happen every time I change time zones. Please fix this issue... Outside of that I love this game!
New IPad and lost hints
by Sewgood7 on 2018/08/24 00:36
I had to get a new iPad. When I logged into WordBrain, I saw that I had lost all my hard earned hints and was back down to level one. I was unaware of saving my points on Facebook. I emailed support and told them that I had lost my 103 hints. I could no longer get my IPad back from Apple to login into Facebook from that device. Support kindly restored my hints at 4 times the original amount. Now I can hopefully get back to where I left off. Thank you WordBrain support.
