Buggy
by Str33tcar on 2020/10/21 17:16
So you know, I’ve completed every last puzzle in all 7 different types of puzzles. I keep playing their daily fun fact quiz to see how long I can keep my continuous days streak alive for. The bug is in the pyramid puzzle portion. When you select a puzzle, it states that you can solve for free. If you decide to solve the puzzle, they charge you 5 tokens!😪
It's ok
by Amberth2003 on 2020/10/16 00:45
I wish you didn't need tokens to play a game. I also wish the crosswords were longer.
Repeats words, runs political advertisements
by nickname patrick on 2020/10/02 04:04
They run political advertisements during the game! The puzzles can be confusing since they use mixed nationality slang. You can have consecutive puzzles with the same words.
Update
by Tootie24400 on 2020/08/13 12:56
The new update only shows 2/3 of the key board on my I Pad now how do I get the full key board? Every nickname I have used has already been taken. So I am going to re rate it to 5 stars and see if my nickname will go thru.
More ads than play time
by Atomic Goats Breath on 2020/08/13 10:02
I played this for quite a while and enjoyed it a lot even though there were so many ads to watch to get the game tokens necessary to play. Ultimately however they stopped offering free tokens even for watching ads so I took it off my phone
Too many ads!!
by puzzler1118 on 2020/08/07 13:06
This app is fun and just challenging enough to complete the puzzles. There are way too many long ads that cannot be skipped, however, making for a frustrating experience.
Spelling or language discrepancy?
by MusicJoy1952 on 2020/08/03 04:59
I’ve notice a couple of words misspelled. One is the song “Hokey Pokey” which is what I taught my little students to sing and act out in kindergarten. In the puzzle the spelling is hokey bokey. Who created this puzzle? I love it but just wonder about the spelling.
Fun for whole family
by DinoDonnna on 2020/07/30 00:16
Just right for difficulty factor. I can include the whole family.
Not good
by Scbucki on 2020/07/23 17:55
Too many ads, no ad should be over 15 seconds, impossible to earn enough tokens to play. I know you don’t care so - Goodbye
The most annoying Ads automatically turning on speaker
by VeryAvgJoe on 2020/07/17 10:14
I accept that this app has ads. But to suddenly blast ads with high volume and no option for users to mute or specify no speakers for all ads, showed that the developer did not respect the app’s users. This is not acceptable.
Good app for the most part
by pptrt on 2020/07/13 13:37
Good crossword puzzle but one thing you should know first. Some of the words are slang terms used by the British that are unfamiliar to Americans and can make it difficult to complete the puzzle. Otherwise a good free puzzle.
This app has gotten worse
by Francisco 0109 on 2020/07/04 02:01
When I first downloaded this app it was very clean of 30 secs ads. Now it’s constant and extremely annoying. So much that it takes the pleasure of using this app. Also getting tokens for free is also extremely not worth it. And many times when you do go thru the 10K requirements, the tokens do not get credited. Complained to to the Tapjoy team n you need an advertising ID. Which is not available on IOS devices. You have to download a 3rd party app. So this also becomes a hazel!! Which I didn’t do. It wasn’t that important. Nevertheless I’m removing the game apps from both of my devices. Not recommending this app anymore. Sorry. Thanks
Not that you care!
by Bonnie Kaye on 2020/07/02 20:58
Buttttt....I uninstalled this game before because I was having problems. This time you’ve taken all my tokens! I enjoy playing this game but it is extremely frustrating when it malfunctions!
Changes letters
by dulinjenn on 2020/06/29 15:36
I have found that if I come back to a word & try to complete it again the previous letters given are different! And not because I had completed connected words either! I didn’t have any connecting words done & this game would still change my previous letters! For instance if the letters previously contained a “s”, then I would skip to the opposite side of the puzzle to try to figure out another word and then return to the previous word only to get totally different letters! This game cheats!!! Also has many British terms & slang that makes absolutely no sense in English!!!
Good short term
by Joshdv on 2020/06/17 16:33
Fun puzzles but eventually becomes a grind to have tokens. Can’t get enough free tokens to even play a single puzzle in a day. That combined with incredibly frequent ads makes it something to not finish once you run out of cheap puzzles.
Amazing
by THEACISBROKENITSWARM!!🐱 on 2020/06/11 04:31
Best crossword game ever! Good for when you're bored and have nothing to do!
To hard, grandson had to help me
by Pandalover317000 on 2020/06/04 15:36
too many ads, two many instructions very hard to understand, Had to bring my grandson to help me. There are to many flashing lights and I deel with epilepsy I had the scare of my life! 😱
Northern Grandma
by Grandma Angell on 2020/05/31 14:29
The clues don’t match up with the answers. Clue: Eat with apple pie Answer: Custard One star frustrated with this game. Ready to erase it. It shouldn’t be that hard
Timer kind of ruins it
by Kroogan on 2020/05/20 01:22
Constantly have to open the app to use tokens for puzzles to play later. Dropped from 2 to 1 star bc the flashing "unlock next" levels now cost 11 tokens, making the game fully unplayable.
Okay, but sometimes the clues use British slang
by Rebeccakcoco on 2020/05/11 19:25
This app is okay but the clues are sometimes very confusing. Today one of the clues I encountered was “flat out, kipping” (???) and the word was “asleep”. I honestly had no idea what that meant. It’s happened a few times. I’m not sure the rest of the world knows British slang!
Great for the Brits
by ViolettedeParis on 2020/05/02 14:51
I like that the word spaces have great color contrast and the font and spaces aren’t tiny like on the other crossword apps. The clues and set up are great. As an American, I’m having to learn British English for this app, which is a combination of interesting and frustrating.
Decent difficulty curve, and functions well, but a few polishing tweaks would make this better
by Nasulo on 2020/04/27 20:58
This is a pretty good crossword app so far, and it’s free to play. My only complaint so far is that I hate when quests interrupt me during gameplay. Wish there would just be a quest log button that glows when you complete one.
Kate
by infiana kate on 2020/04/20 11:44
Puzzles were interrupted constantly by inappropriate, offensive, and spam advertising. Clues were not very helpfu
Too many ads!
by drfreee on 2020/04/12 04:32
Way too many ads! Some are impossible to remove
To many pop ups
by willbeme200 on 2020/04/10 17:12
I know a game needs to make money to stay in business ,but the amount of pop ups is crazy.
Not basic
by yasa321 on 2020/03/25 00:58
Too many ads, and when they come up there’s no option to exit and it won’t let you exit even after the ad is over. Too many distractions. Has potential to be great but no one wants to make a conventional game anymore. I want a puzzle like the book with no interruptions. That’s basically why people do crosswords, peace and quiet. This game is neither, unfortunately
Clues don’t fit the word
by Cartman1119 on 2020/03/21 02:24
Me and my girlfriend take turns doing these puzzles and one thing we have found is that some of the clues to the word do not fit the word itself. A lot of them don’t even make sense. “Person with club” = lame. That’s the clue to the word. Not kidding. Another issue we have is the informal words are.. useless, if slang is going to be a part of this game then it needs to be a word that everyone has heard or knows. Different areas use different slang so what might be right in the west might be the exact opposite in the east. Other then those issues it is very addicting, and very time passing so I have to give credit where credit is due.
Double Awards
by Tiki613 on 2020/03/17 07:42
On day 5 when I tap double rewards the video never downloads and my chance to gain more tokens are LOST!!’ If I want to play that day I have to BUY more tokens. NOT GOOD
Not bad
by Caucusjwfu on 2020/02/26 03:33
The amount of commercials are obnoxious. Like just opening a puzzle section or going back to the menu triggers a commercial. Come on. The other main issue that bothers me is when you spend 400 coins to reveal only what letters are in the word and then accidentally back out of doing that word, suddenly it doesn’t register that you purchased that hint and gives you a full set of letters again.
Game
by tulsa07 on 2020/02/21 03:21
Good game, but pretty quickly you get to the point where you can only play a game or two a day without buying tokens. British slang can be confusing and some words I’ve never heard before.
Greatest game

No Fun! No fun at all!
by jimmyluvsmusic on 2020/02/14 16:59
I downloade this a year ago. When you get closer to the end it demands you watch more videos and, limits you to a certain amount of videos per day. You need tokens to play but you can BUY tokens if you want?!? Wheeee! What fun....Not!
E
by Elizaneth Mosher on 2020/02/12 21:38
Really like the game. When are you putting up new crosswords? You all haven’t put up something new in a very long time.
This is the perfect App if you love Ads
by DV1991 on 2020/02/09 12:47
This is overload of ads. Even if you are in a puzzle you have to watch an ad to switch back to main menu, then watch another ad to play a new puzzle. So it’s double ads for every puzzle. Awesome. Greedy developers.
Ripoff
by Hate false advertisers on 2020/01/28 20:33
The problem with this app is once you reach a certain point you have no choice but to buy coins because all of the games are over 10 coins and you can't accumulate more than 10 coins without playing - it's a catch 22. I paid to remove ads and regret giving them a dime. It also is a rudimentary design compared to other crossword apps.
Only 100 Daily Puzzles?
by kf93210 on 2020/01/25 16:49
No more daily puzzles! It’s says I’ve completed them all. Also very glitchy on the Fact of the Day section. It doesn’t give credit for completing.

Odd glitch but a decent app
by robyn280 on 2020/01/23 20:57
A wide variety of puzzles that are fun and challenging but not too difficult. An odd glitch that I wish they’d fix—the app doesn’t recognize that I’ve completed all 100 of the “World’s Tallest” puzzles until I click on the category. Wouldn’t be a problem but completing that category unlocks a different category and it’s a hassle when I’ve got to jump through hoops because of a glitch.

Needs work
by qgdsjb on 2020/01/18 14:16
Please fix the crashes. I don’t know if it’s because of something on my end or yours. Please look into it. It crashes 3 seconds into the app opening.
Frustrating
by JWUSR3452 on 2020/01/12 23:21
Frustrating! Why do you earn coins but can only pay for puzzles in tokens, which you rarely earn? Way too many ads. Glitchy. Goes black screen or white screen and doesn't recover. This app needs a lot of work. The concept is great, but too frustrating to use.
This one is for kids
by jamikoiv on 2020/01/08 07:32
Just a heads up I think this one is for kids. It kept giving hints and couldn’t figure out how to turn them off.
Made an in-app purchase but never received it
by DessThaBest on 2019/12/31 04:24
I purchased tokens and never received them. I tried contacting the developer but was unsuccessful. This was very frustrating. I had to reach out to Apple to get support, although they told me to contact the developer. I would continue the app if they would simply fix it and work on having better ways for customers to communicate concerning issues.
Really enjoy it, but...
by UmKelthume on 2019/12/29 17:37
Great game, BUT....I do Not receive the daily rewards...that Forces me to Purchase Tokens in order to play. That's slimy and shady. If you don't want to purchase All the time...don't get this game.
Opening the app
by uzumaki9 on 2019/12/25 06:19
Every time i try to open the app, it closes by itseft. This is driving me crazy. Fix this. It doesnt stay at least 10 seconds playing.
App closing
by JJcutor💜 on 2019/12/09 03:58
Played it everyday, but now it closes every time I try to use open it.
Loved it until it started glitching
by Nickolehuffman on 2019/12/07 15:37
I am a bit embarrassed to admit how many hours I have spent on this app. As a crossword enthusiast, i enjoy the challenges of the different puzzles. Sadly, out of nowhere, it started glitching and will immediately crashes. I’m disappointed, knowing that deleting the app will cause me to lose all of my work. 😕
No Response To Email
by Game/words on 2019/12/03 20:26
I emailed a few days ago about the failure of the app to launch. This issue had been occurring fir nearly a week. I enjoy this app and find it very challenging so I’m very Disappointed to not be able to play. Please fix this issue and please respond to my email. Thank you

Adpocalypse
by Lame Frog on 2019/11/29 12:25
I understand the need for ads, but this is ridiculous. The game has a few bugs and some of the clues are incorrect. This also seems very British oriented and uses some of their slang. If not for the excessive ads, 3 out of 5.
Fun!
by Tookme6triestogetaname on 2019/11/27 11:54
This is an amazing pass of time, you learn new words by playing.
No real keyboard, only 12 random letters
by Arghiterrasedmyreview on 2019/11/18 07:22
No real full iPhone keyboard, only 12 random letters. I found it disorienting and not like a real crossword because of it. Deleted it.
This app would be great......
by TheWagonBaron on 2019/10/15 00:02
If they’re weren’t ads at almost every transition. I get putting ads into your game to either help support it or get people to buy an ad-free version but this app is overkill. Want to load a puzzle? Watch this ad. Want to go back to the main screen after finishing a puzzle? Here’s an ad. Accidental click out of a puzzle? Another ad and then a bonus ad when you try to go back into the puzzle. It’s. Too. Much. You shouldn’t have an ad on every single transition. I uninstalled because of this.
Ok app
by jetsetting teacher on 2019/09/21 00:34
Repetitious but fun enough to while away 10 mins. There are a few inaccuracies that I’ve found so far though which is annoying to me. The most glaring recently is a clue that said Middle Eastern capital, and the answer was Dubai, but having lived in Abu Dhabi for two years, I know Dubai is not the capital of the UAE, Abu Dhabi is. Dubai is just the most well-known of the 7 emirates. There have been a few others as well, but for the most part the clues are accurate, if not always good, and often repetitive.
Val
by val.L32 on 2019/09/18 15:00
I love this game and been playing for ages. Why oh why does it get stuck on some ads and refuses to move no matter how many times you try to close it. Please, please fix this problem.
British Developer?
by Noizeenoiz on 2019/09/10 16:42
I love word games, so initially I liked this. What annoyed me were some of the word choices. This game must have British developers because several of the words in each puzzle were not known to those in the US. I love BritBox which helped some, but even with hints (which cost coins that are not easily obtained unless you spend real money) I would end up making up something until it was right. When that worked, it ended up being a word I had never heard of even though I have a good vocabulary. More frustrating than fun.
Decent for free
by Chrish62704 on 2019/09/03 21:55
It’s a decent crossword puzzle app with plenty to keep you busy. However, the clues often use foreign idioms that make the answers difficult, unless you have a pretty good understanding of British slang. Apparently, kitting means asleep and a common household shrub is a cheese plant, neither of which are terms used often at all in the states. Either way, if you can get past this, it’s a decent crossword app.

Becomes Unplayable Unless you buy more tokens.
by TMann34 on 2019/08/25 18:20
You can play free for quite awhile. It costs you tokens to open the new puzzles. You have a bank of ten that refill with time. Puzzles start costing more the further you progress. Then when you get down to around 800 puzzles left the puzzles cost 11 tokens. So in order to get more than 10 you must purchase or wait the 24 hours to play one puzzle. It’s a great app and the words get to be quite challenging after awhile. But why increase the cost to where you must pay to play? Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of a free app?
Kiddy game
by JazmynFL on 2019/08/23 23:56
What’s up with all the “quests” and side junk. I just wanted a plain old ordinary crossword for adult players, not a kiddy game.
Awesome game!
by DrBarr on 2019/08/10 15:23
The only thing I would recommend is maybe not showing ads for games I already own or doubling the tokens awarded. I love this game and will never stop playing! Well done.
From a kids point of view
by MRLOLS666 on 2019/08/07 23:29
It is to hard for kids that are younger than 15
Not Worth It!!!
by alien.zeebo on 2019/07/30 03:50
You will spend more time watching adds than you will working puzzles and the puzzles are not very good. Find another crossword app unless you like watching the same adds over and over and over again.
Love this app

What a great way to spend your downtime!!
It could be better
by Marvel-60 on 2019/07/19 01:05
It’s fun, but if it costs tokens to play then it should award tokens when you solve a puzzle, but it only awards coins. You should be able to buy tokens with the coins, but you can’t.
Horrible

Enjoyable crossword varieties
by Dcamonkeys on 2019/07/08 15:30
I’ve played this game for several months and have been enjoying the variety of puzzles offered, although I’ve completed all of the Daily Diamonds, so will have to work on the rest of the puzzles. I’m enjoying the Fact of the Day, but wish I could see those that I’ve completed so I can access them again after I’ve forgotten them. Just be aware that the creators must be British, judging by the slang/informal terms used. I’ve tried other crossword apps, but this is the one that I’ve stuck with.
Suggestion
by Dwjonz on 2019/07/04 16:53
I like the variety of the different games you offer. I would suggest that when a game is finished that we be able to look at the finished puzzle to “admire” our hard work. Just make it so we hit a button to move off to the next puzzle.
Games okay but DO NOT fill out a survey for free coins
by Mwhaley919 on 2019/06/30 16:02
Seriously. I filled out a survey to get a few game coins for free and now my number constantly gets bombarded with spam calls and texts. There’s nothing I can do to stop it. There are no options to stop the calls or texts. Seriously annoying and went from liking this game to despising it.
Too many ads. Way too many.
by Chip Odos on 2019/06/19 19:29
All in all this is a good app. That said, the ads have been ever-increasing in regularity. Words of advice: (1) ALWAYS use coins to open a puzzle if possible. You'll earn coins much easier than tokens. (2) make sure you get your 5 free tokens and 1250 free coins EVERY day. You'll need the tokens to finish this game and the coins just make it a little easier.
Daily Diamond puzzle
by Thom9113 on 2019/06/10 13:50
Love this game but I still can’t figure out for the life of me how to get to the Daily Diamond puzzle!?! Any help out there?
Pay to Play Crap
by A Fatigued Celebrity on 2019/06/05 01:30
Free tokens are too infrequent, or require watching multiple ads (3+) just to get enough to work another puzzle, or you can pay for tokens. It’s a free app, I understand you have to get your money somehow, but you have so many in-app ads you could do away with tokens and just make the puzzles free to play at your own pace. Instead, I am deleting and moving on. I will never pay for crap like this that I can get truly free elsewhere in other apps.
Full of ads
by Smitherz65 on 2019/06/01 23:35
Games are fun but not worth the time putting up with all of the video ads.
You have to
by psugrla87 on 2019/06/01 15:52
You have to use your hard earned coins to play another crossword. Not for me, game was discarded
I really liked this until
by Pamkl on 2019/05/31 00:22
I did enough puzzles to no longer earn tokens and stopped being able to pay with coins. Yes, I get a few each day as a reward, but they go fast. Wish I could trade in my coins for tokens. The number of ads is annoying as well. When I run out of tokens, I'll be deleting the app. Not worth buying them.
Good game but sooo many ads
by dfc0972 on 2019/05/20 18:54
Want to play a game? Watch an ad. Finish it? Watch another. Play another game? Watch another ad after just watching one. The quests that earn you 250 coins often have requirements that you spend 500 or more on hints. No reason to do the quests.
Very fun and entertaining

Not really free
by mydik927 on 2019/05/06 09:06
Okay, so the download is free, they give you ten token through wait time, but after you complete so many puzzles, the token cost goes up into the 20s, but you max your wait tokens out at 10, I figured the might reward you tokens for completing a puzzle, nope, they give you coins!!! Like whipty doo, so they are subliminally forcing you to either wait extensive time between puzzles( checking in every day for daily bonuses) or buying tokens
One problem
by deet1738 on 2019/05/03 05:22
This problem arose about a year ago. I love this time passer and have completed the main one before this problem started. One I began the tallest, after an update, and once you complete a level, there’s no hoo rah... I know it’s been a while since that update, but before then it was like yay, another one down here’s some coins and a good job. Now it just tells me to go back to the home screen... how unclimatic is that!

Daily Diamond
by TinderIsGarbageNow on 2019/04/21 14:40
AFTER you have completed ALL the Daily Diamond puzzles, maybe stop the notification that you have one available to you. I want to see the star at the bottom that I’ve completed them all and no notification, or make more fresh ones. The feeling of accomplishment is nice, and this prevents it from happening.
Too many bugs/changes
by slytherin_______ on 2019/04/18 10:10
Lately whenever I try and double my daily rewards it doesn’t give me any at all, and after I completed quite a few puzzles in the World’s Biggest category it stopped letting me pay for puzzles with coins. I loved it when I first started but this is too many inconveniences.
Weird words
by Datdudeukno on 2019/04/17 07:57
There are a lot of slang, informal, and basically unused words (titter, snigger, anorak). Probably very British. Clues are very weird, or worded very strangely.
I just want todo a crossword puzzle.

Place not Saved
by BluesHarpist on 2019/04/04 23:34
The most annoying thing about the app is that the last puzzle you worked on has to be searched for each time you’ve closed the app. Some of the same hints are repeated, too. That has always annoyed me about most crossword publications, though.

In the middle of doing the puzzle, the app glitches and just keeps sending you to the App Store. I uninstalled. Pathetic.

Paid for No Ads
by Suecq58 on 2019/03/18 08:40
I enjoy the game, but the ads are annoying, so I paid for NO ADS. Yet, ads are still popping up. It’s very frustrating! I would have given 4/5 stars if the ads weren’t still popping up.
It would be better if.....
by DiRosie61 on 2019/03/17 00:07
You gave TOKENS for every puzzle you complete! There’s NO WAY to get tokens (which are needed to play other crosswords and you don’t give the option to watch videos to get tokens!) and miraculously when you complete a challenge, you get MAYBE 2-3 tokens and a crap load of coins! You need 7 or more tokens to play a crossword. That’s just a sleazy way to get ppl to BUY the tokens! So when you do that, most ppl with connecting brain cells, see the writing on the wall and they move on to other crosswords that don’t do that. Although I love the game, I won’t buy tokens for that reason. You took a great game and made it all about the money.
Good when it’s working
by Storck718 on 2019/03/14 00:34
I like the crosswords themselves, but this app is very buggy. It displays ads that force you to play their games and then crash the app. I don’t mind watching videos for free tokens or coins, but forcing me to play the game and go to the App Store just to get back to my game and have it still stuck in the ad is really frustrating. Not sure it’s worth the puzzle itself
Great game
by MattTC11 on 2019/03/08 19:01
Fun and addictive. However, I wish there was an option to get rid of ads, they become quite annoying.
No satisfaction, very frustrating
by Mae_User on 2019/03/02 18:03
I was stuck on the last word, had my whole family working on it to figure it out. One of us tapped a few random letters in and accidentally solved the puzzle, and the whole screen was immediately covered by a completion dialogue. I cant go back to see the completed puzzle, and we’ll never know what that last answer was. At least with a newspaper puzzle, you get the answers along with the next paper. :( I’m uninstalling this very frustrating app.
Fun at first...
by JLRMforever on 2019/03/01 23:07
But there isn’t a way to get free tokens (can’t watch ads to get them anymore), & I refuse to buy them! I can only play it a few minutes each day. Also, British Cryptics, Codewords, Word Grid are too hard, so I can’t get into Quote Falls. Tokens need to be offered with ads. Also, when you play, it helps to realize the puzzles were created from a British point-of-view. I’m nearly done & will delete the app soon.
Ok for a freebie
by BeeJayCee01 on 2019/02/25 23:48
Couldn’t believe that this is a puzzle based on words and one clue misspelled the answer! How dumb!!! FYI: A workshop clamp is a VISE, not a VICE. Pronounce with an s that is closer to a z sound, not a sibilant s.
Not getting earned tokens
by NotHappySamy on 2019/02/20 17:04
3 times now I have completed the tasks needed to earn free tokens, and have not received them. I should have received over 3000 tokens.
Pretty good for a free app
by moviegirl611 on 2018/07/11 05:08
I like the fact that there is a new puzzle everyday and there a few others you can play right off the bat. As other’s mentioned, the letters are given to you (some you need and some you don’t) and it took me a while to figure out that even correct letters will be cleared unless you get the entire word correct. The clues are sometimes a stretch in my opinion and sometimes they use British slang and don’t mention their doing it...had to guess “prang” today as this word is not used in the US. Overall level of difficulty is easy to moderate. Yes this is a free app so you won’t get unlimited games...you get a few and then as you play, you win tokens or points to unlock other games. I’ve been playing a good few weeks almost every day and have always had a few puzzles to play. Also with the free app, there are ads...I just wait a few secs until the little x mark shows up to close the pop up and then I return to my next crossword. Pretty nice little app.
It's lots of fun....but
by Hip Didler on 2017/08/08 23:01
This is the fourth time I've tried posting a review (so I can get 20 free tokens) and each time it never posts, so let's try again.... I play this game everyday and it's lots of fun. I like the way the game is laid out and it's easy to use. However there are a couple of issues: the amount of tokens you need to open up a new puzzle is crazy, particularly when you either have to watch ad after ad to get them, or buy them. Yes, if you come back everyday they will give you tokens, but at a certain point you would have to come back every day for 3 days straight just to have enough tokens to open 1 puzzle. The other issue is some of the words they use I've never even heard of before (I've been doing crosswords for 30+ yrs) A lot of the clues are also English (UK). Other then those issues, it's great. Now let's see if I get my free tokens!
Alright but annoying progress pop ups
by Duskwitch6 on 2018/01/27 16:34
I've been playing for a couple days and my biggest complaint is it seems that every other minute a new pop up is appearing telling me I've completed a goal in the quest - "wow, you found a word starting with S? Congrats! Let's interrupt your gameplay to tell you and make you tap several times to get back to it!" I don't care. And the game decides what words to give me so it's not like I've done anything special. Just show me the goals when I open a puzzle and show me when I win tokens for meeting goals. Otherwise it's alright, I've been having fun. I'd prefer not to see the set of letters it provides for each word until I tap to reveal them because it makes it too easy. I've played enough jumbled word games that my brain automatically picks words out of them, so I have to cover them up with my finger if I want an actual crossword experience and not a jumbled letter game. I'd like to see an option so you could choose your preference.
Fun, with just enough amount of Challenge! - Update
by Konakid63 on 2018/10/04 06:14
Fun & Challenging, but not too difficult to avoid it from being frustrating! I like the fact that I can complete the puzzles when I have time. Other entertainment apps require you to "check-in daily", or complete a game before closing the app, or you will have to replay it upon returning (as an example). I may not open the app for a few months, yet I know that my material will be safe for whenever I do. UPDATE: OCT 2018 - I’m enjoying the changes (improvements, modifications) that were recently done .. except for one item. When I click on “Main Menu”, WHYYYY does the app question my decision????! To me, there’s no reason for this .. and it’s just really annoying!!! REALLY!!!!! It’s not like my decision is going to lock me in, nor cost me money; so it just doesn’t make any sense. Maybe I’m the only one ... ??
Fun but...
by monie1952 on 2017/08/30 18:31
I enjoy the puzzles but cost of new ones versus time it takes to get more is too high. Looks like there's a limit of 10 tokens to get at the rate of 3 minutes per token. But that eliminates a lot of puzzles because you quickly run out of puzzles that cost 10 or less tokens. Also I can never get free tokens by watching videos because it crashes either before video starts or right before video ends. Frustrating. Update: nothing has changed. Doesn't seem that reviews make much difference to the game developers. I've gone about as far as I can with the biggest puzzle since I can't get enough tokens to do at least a third of them. I'll work on the worlds tallest until I run out of options. I'd like to be able to complete these but if I have to open everyday for a week and not play just to get enough tokens for one section it really isn't worth it to me. I'll move on to other crossword apps.
Fun and challenging
by ALP735735 on 2017/08/21 14:04
I read several of the other reviews for this game, and I went into the game with an open mind. So many times it seems that people want to play games nonstop, without anything to remind them that they should put their phone or tablet down (such as running out of tokens or waiting for a timer to expire). When I read reviews about how few tokens that you were given, but you get more tokens the following day I thought this was probably one of those situations. I am not one of those people that cannot put my phone down, but I still get frustrated with how few tokens you are given compared to the number of tokens required to play each game. The gameplay itself is very fun, there have been a handful of times that I had to use the hint, which costs 300 tokens for one letter, and after you beat an entire puzzle you might possibly get those 300 tokens back. This does not seem like an even exchange. If you only get 300 tokens when you solve an entire puzzle, it seems that 300 tokens should solve the entire word for you, rather than just give you one letter!!! Having said those things I do still enjoy playing the game, I just have to overlook those shortcomings of the game.
Fun Game
by HocusAndPocus123 on 2017/11/13 02:08
Not happy with the fact it cost coins to play and then so many coins used for hints is ridiculous and only get one letter for the use of the hint. Some of the words are way out in left field never heard of them so have to cheat on the game just to be able to go on to next level or stay stuck because you run out of coins the game is fun and can be addicting if the issues get fixed plus would like more color choices more vivid and also hate that when you click on a box the tokens for a box are all different and scattered all around if your going to do different ones put them on different levels or rows so we can chose where to go instead of searching for the less token ones to play and it takes more time we just want to play not search to play if we wanted to search we would find a search and find game instead
Not bad, but..
by Opinion02122 on 2017/07/17 16:10
I have only played the "easy" puzzles. And, even in the "easy" puzzles they use words that I've never seen, or heard of, in my long life. I hate puzzles that use words you've never heard of, and, though I only found a few per puzzle, so far, most of these puzzles have them. There are also spelling errors in the clues, and answers! Scummage for scrimmage in one puzzle. Some puzzles have clues that refer to "starred" clues that are part of another clue. But there ARE NO starred clues! So what's that about? Seems that some of these were written for printed puzzles, where some clues WERE starred, and the author never checked them before submitting them to this app. The other words can still be challenging and fun when you figure them out, so I'll still play, but it has flaws.
Fun but slow!
by Seth Draven on 2018/05/18 08:00
This crossword app is great, I love how massive it is—there are so many puzzles! My only issue is that the green tokens take a little too long to stack up when you play every day and are trying to progress through/unlock the more token-costly levels. I’m only really writing this review because they’ll toss 20 green tokens your way if you leave a review. Overall it’s fun and just the right amount of challenging. Also, however, many puzzles have the same exact answer in them that they had in the puzzle right before that one, which gets old fast. But like I said, it’s a huge grid of puzzles; for free you can’t really expect ‘em all to have different answers for each and every clue.
Fun but requires a ton of patience
by atristacrat on 2017/07/12 18:34
It's very fun. But apparently once you reach a certain point you can only get tokens by either purchasing them or by coming back to the game each day and earning free ones by watching videos or responding to ads/surveys. This makes it very slow to build up. What can I say? I guess I'm not as patient as I think I am, because I want to complete the board but I can't due to the decreased flow of tokens. I used to get them all the time through completing puzzles and being given bonus ones where you pay in coins to complete it in exchange for a tokens reward. Now I don't seem to have that option. So if you don't mind limiting yourself to one puzzle per day or even per week (depending on how many tokens it costs you to open it)... you'll be very happy with this game/app.
Fun Puzzles
by Abqaiq67 on 2017/08/10 07:05
I was playing game when it suddenly changed format. Interesting. Still hate that I've had to start over so many times. 😘 Like the puzzles just wish it would save when I have to get a new phone so I could finally finish it. I'm adding this!!!! I had to get a new phone again and this is the ONLY app that didn't back anything up. VERY DISAPPOINTED as I like this game but am fed up with having to keep starting over (especially when I was almost done). What's the point!!! I'm really disappointed that when I got a new phone and had to download this app again I lost ALL the games I had finished and all the coins and tokens I had collected. I backed everything up and most apps brought back up all I had done/ collected. Also I continue to get this message when I click to get reward for posting to Twitter. Whoa there! There is no request token for this page. That's the special key we need from applications asking to use your Twitter account. Please go back to the site or application that sent you here and try again; it was probably just a mistake. Go to Twitter. Well, I'm finally a few games from completion. Hopefully I get done for once. Had for more crosswords to play.
Addictive! But limited
by Muse1975 on 2017/08/29 10:07
Love the game but I'm facing the same issue as all the other reviewers...too few tokens rewarded each day as compared to the massive amount of tokens required to open a new puzzle. Currently, I have to open the game each day for a few measly tokens in order to play on. At the rate I'm going, it'll be at least 2-4 days before I can play 1 puzzle (which I usually complete in a matter of minutes). Just doesn't seem right. Of course I can always buy the tokens but some puzzles cost as much as 30 or 40 tokens each. There's an offer of $9.99 for a 1000 tokens - which is a lot for a crossword puzzle. And I haven't done the math but I'm not even sure if that's enough to complete the game. There used to be a feature where I could exchange coins instead of tokens for a fresh puzzle but that seems to have gone away. Why award us coins when there's no use for it anymore? Please bring back the coin exchange option!! Those things aside, I love the game and can play it all day. Maybe this is just the developer's way to force me to pace myself!
Fun, if the Ads Stop
by ptruby16 on 2017/12/14 22:55
I'm only here for the 20 tokens tbh. I wanted a free to play crossword app with lots of puzzles to pass the time. This app delivers pretty well. They repeat a lot of small words like END and MAD, but I get why. They need to fill up space. The worst part of the app, which isn't the token/coin system (they kinda need a way to keep people from solving all of them at once), is the saturation of ads. Every time you go back into the Map View from a particular puzzle, they give you an ad. If you complete a puzzle, they show an ad. The ads you watch for extra coins and tokens are even longer, but those are optional and I guess if I click on those it's my own fault. Basically, if they reduced the ads even 25% that would be fine. Otherwise fun app.
Fun, but limited!
by catone3 on 2017/07/22 07:29
I have to play this every day to earn tokens for free by watching advertisements because I don't want to buy tokens just to play a "free" game. But I am limited on how much I can play because the game has limits as to how many tokens you can earn everyday! As the puzzles get harder they require more tokens to unlock. You can only watch five 30 second video advertisements daily to get a few free tokens. The videos are so repetitive. Ugh! I wish the game would let you earn more tokens and faster! I am almost done with the whole game ... I'm glad they added the tallest puzzle cause I was wondering what I was going to do next! Lol
Keep working on the fine tuning, developers
by ace2u2009 on 2018/12/30 21:34
Good concept but needs work. First off, check your dictionary. The clue was “drainage ditch.” The answer should have been “dike,” but the only way the puzzle would accept it is if I subbed a “y” for the “i.” Ummm.... Second, the “progress” pop ups are annoying and insulting. “Congratulations! You found 5 three-letter words!” You have to tap several times to get back to being able to play the game. If the game is advertised to make you smarter, it should live up to its claim and not waste time with meaningless rewards. Personally I could do without the letter bank completely. May be good for a little kids’ version, but not for adults. I’ll delete the app after this, but I look forward to a better version in t(e near future.
Okay...
by Cat1131 on 2018/01/05 03:35
So, this game can be really fun. However, it’s also really frustrating. There are a lot of words used MULTIPLE times (example: “sweets” is used at least ten times so far). Some of the clues are extremely bizarre and don’t make sense. (Field = world ??) Earning tokens is a nightmare. I downloaded an app and played for 30+ minutes to get over 300 tokens... and didn’t get them. Don’t count on support ever responding to you. Some of the quests are nearly impossible. 3 words with the letter Q? It took me about 25 puzzles to get that one. And I’m not sure how the timer quests work... they don’t accurately represent how long I’ve played. When I asked, no one ever responded. It could be such a great game...but it doesn’t feel like the developers are willing to put in the time to get there.
Yes and no
by cswrawr on 2018/02/10 05:03
Fairly entertaining, has kept my attention well. You need to either be English or an Anglophile to get 90% of the informal words. Calling it a giant crossword is a misnomer as it's actually a few hundred tiny crosswords and the number of hints and words that repeat is crazy. I've typed in "spade" "clever" and "tears" at least a half a dozen times each. There's more repeat words than unique ones. And I agree with other reviews stating the amount of coins to open some of them is too high, particularly when half the time the ads to earn coins freeze up and the app has to be crashed resulting in no extra coins.
Not enough tokens
by Karen - Nc on 2018/03/20 19:24
I enjoyed playing the puzzles until rounds cost over 14 tokens, which is half of the "Big" board. The max stored is 10, with an option to earn up to 5 tokens per day for watching ads. You also win tokens by completing quests, which are things like, "find 5 words ending with" a random letter. There is a chance to play a special round for tokens, signified by a rotating coin on the board. I've gotten one opportunity in 25 consecutive days of play. I got hopeful when the "tower" board offered rounds under 10 tokens, but that didn't last a second round. Really, this app is fun for a week or two. Then you just check in long enough to collect tokens (some rounds are 50 tokens).
Ends up Pay to play
by Elevert on 2017/10/04 21:11
I love the idea and solved almost half of the puzzles before I started having issues being able to afford new puzzles. Each puzzle cost tokens and you don't earn them for free fast enough. The ads are already annoying after completing every puzzle. At first they let you buy puzzles with coins which earn you tokens on completion but at a certain point you can't buy any more with coins. Also on the tallest puzzle it makes it seem like you can buy a puzzle with coins, but when you try it just says to complete the current chapter. So coins become useless unless you want to eliminate/solve letters for a clue. Fun at first but don't waste your time. They should make plenty of money on the annoying ads but instead want to make more money on selling tokens as well.
Fun enough
by Danish42 on 2017/07/22 09:04
Uses a lot of "proper" English terms, which may be unfamiliar to some. Sometimes the clue suggests a verb, but the answer is a noun. I'm usually a completionist for games, but don't think I'll follow through with this. As other reviews note, the game becomes slow-going once you reach a certain tier of puzzles and coins/tokens are harder to earn. Heck, wrote this just for the 20 free tokens. Ads pop up between almost every screen, though that's commonplace in a lot of games now anyways. Overall, it gives me something to do that's a bit more challenging and intelligent than a Bejeweled knock-off.
Finally, a crossword puzzle I like!
by Sweet Bre on 2017/11/06 18:43
I was Looking for a crossword puzzle game that would be challenging and fun at the same time. I’ve tried many, but this is the only game that’s held my interest. The only thing is, I don’t like the fact that I have to use tokens to level up to new puzzles. I thought once the puzzle was completed I could keep leveling up to new ones —I was wrong. Besides that small Hang-up, I’m giving this game 5 stars, which is something I rarely do. P.S. I think the tokens could be used to help the player —sort of like power ups.
Extremely Excessive Ads
by Marine8914 on 2018/09/21 01:15
Definitely one of the better crossword puzzle apps. If it weren’t for the nonstop ads it would be the best. I understand free apps run ads to make money but this is extremely excessive. You open the app, you get an ad. You enter one of the boards, you get an ad. You complete a puzzle, you get an ad. You leave a puzzle and go to the main menu, you guessed it! Another ad!! Even cutting the amount of ads in half or even by a third, would make it a lot better. The only other issue I have encountered is that some of the clues make absolutely no sense because the answer they are looking for isn’t a correct answer for that clue.
Clues don’t fit the word
by Cartman1119 on 2020/03/21 02:24
Me and my girlfriend take turns doing these puzzles and one thing we have found is that some of the clues to the word do not fit the word itself. A lot of them don’t even make sense. “Person with club” = lame. That’s the clue to the word. Not kidding. Another issue we have is the informal words are.. useless, if slang is going to be a part of this game then it needs to be a word that everyone has heard or knows. Different areas use different slang so what might be right in the west might be the exact opposite in the east. Other then those issues it is very addicting, and very time passing so I have to give credit where credit is due.
It would be better if.....

Improvement, Perhaps.
by NotQuiteAntiquatedButClose on 2017/07/15 08:20
I'm not claiming any MENSA DNA, but finally the several new puzzles I've done have contained new, multisyllabic, challenging words. I haven't relied on using Wordplay (or any other on-line CW help) so my times aren't remarkable. But, at the same time, my goals have changed. I want to become more self-reliant. On-line puzzle help programs remind me of SNIPER programs used to give some eBay bidders an unfair advantage, for example. Would be nice if these crossword puzzles had a completely even playing field. In any event, I am having more fun while finally experiencing frustration with these games. It's great.
Love this game
by Zacker001 on 2017/07/25 04:52
I love this game i play it all the time! Its not too hard but not easy and the fact that you can buy letters is great along with the free coins you get for watching a commercial is good because you can use the coins to buy new letters without spending any real money... lets face it, if it wasn't for that i would have deleted this app long ago! But i love it just the way it is so don't go wrecking it by changing it around! It's great as is... keep up the good work now, about those 20 free tokens? Ummm yeah, wheres those tokens again?
Fun but a bit nerve wracking
by LABete100 on 2017/07/12 20:56
I like this game. Most of the words are easy, but it does make you think of the answers since there isn't as much crossover between the across and down squares as in normal crosswords. My only complaint is that I'm really not sure of the coin/token usage rules. I would play more, but I don't want to end up inadvertently getting charged real money for purchases I didn't mean to make. The new tower puzzle is interesting, but it's downright mean to have the spinning coin "token" puzzles turn out to be locked unless I first pay for all of the "tower" puzzles!
Fun, but annoying
by BbForever4512 on 2017/09/10 21:00
I am posting this review purely for the 20 tokens it's supposed to give me. I enjoy playing this whenever I have time to kill, and it's really useful if you have to stand in a long line. It's the BEST for amusement park waits. Also, since I think it's based in the U.K., the hints for English slang words are really challenging and have some pretty funny answers if you're used to U.S. English. However, wracking up "tokens" is frustrating if you don't want to shell out your own cash for them. I have literally thousands of "coins" and have no way to spend them on anything useful.
Enjoyable crossword varieties
by Dcamonkeys on 2019/07/08 15:30
I’ve played this game for several months and have been enjoying the variety of puzzles offered, although I’ve completed all of the Daily Diamonds, so will have to work on the rest of the puzzles. I’m enjoying the Fact of the Day, but wish I could see those that I’ve completed so I can access them again after I’ve forgotten them. Just be aware that the creators must be British, judging by the slang/informal terms used. I’ve tried other crossword apps, but this is the one that I’ve stuck with.
Frustratingly fun
by L@ur3n 123456789012345 on 2017/11/16 03:27
The puzzles are fun, though they reuse words way too much. I got really into it, until the number of tokens required to play the game exceeded 10 tokens, which is the most you can earn automatically. After you complete a puzzle, you get either coins (95%) or tokens (5%). And only every other day do they allow you to watch 5 videos to earn a token each. The option to earn more tokens for free doesn’t work. You don’t download an app and open it, etc and it doesn’t credit you the tokens. Bottom line is I completed over 300 puzzles and now I’m stuck. It’s a broken system.
Fun but may require willpower
by Soccabeya on 2017/07/15 02:44
It's a fun game and as crosswords go it's a good challenge without being impossible. The only downside is it costs tokens to play each puzzle and so you kind of have to pace yourself because you only earn so many tokens per day. You also earn tokens for winning quests, but at a certain point you can beat all the quests and still need tokens. So if you don't want to pay for tokens, you just need to pace yourself so you don't use up all your tokens.
Great game!
by Crickette USA on 2018/05/04 11:56
This is a great crossword puzzle. It’s fun, easy, and a perfect way to spend some downtime. I have to say that being in America, I don’t always get the clues for some of the words we don’t normally use here, but that makes it more interesting with needing to use “reason” with how words are structured in order to complete the squares. It’s also fun to learn a vocabulary of someplace other than the US. I also love the daily crossword; I’m up to about 250 consecutive days! I’d recommend this app to anyone who loves crosswords.
Really good but..
by Erika199973 on 2017/08/25 22:33
I've been playing this for a long time and have beaten the original puzzles. With the update they added the tallest crossword or something to that extent and with these puzzles (which I think are more challenging) I don't get any sort of reward when I complete them. So my coins and tokens are just dwindling and there's no way to get any back sans the daily puzzles whose payout is dismal at best. I'm wondering if it's just a glitch but it should be resolved. Other than that I love the game and will continue to play for a long time!
Becomes Unplayable Unless you buy more tokens.
by TMann34 on 2019/08/25 18:20
You can play free for quite awhile. It costs you tokens to open the new puzzles. You have a bank of ten that refill with time. Puzzles start costing more the further you progress. Then when you get down to around 800 puzzles left the puzzles cost 11 tokens. So in order to get more than 10 you must purchase or wait the 24 hours to play one puzzle. It’s a great app and the words get to be quite challenging after awhile. But why increase the cost to where you must pay to play? Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of a free app?
Interesting

I enjoy this game. It is interesting and just challenging enough to keep me engaged. The one downfall it says free but it really wants you to spend money on the tokens. Some of them take so much that I can only play daily a small amount to keep earning them . The coins really do nothing. Occasion you can use them to buy them. The ads are sometimes annoying particularly now that they have sound. It also tends to lock up. I am almost finished with the whole grid and am anxious to see what happens.
Fun but frustrating
by Over-obligated User on 2017/07/14 02:59
I love the challenge of crosswords. This ap meets that goal, but it is difficult to play without purchasing tokens. Since I will not pay to play, it's taking some time to complete the puzzle. I'm relying on the daily small supply of tokens and a few provided free by viewing advertising and videos. The free tokens often come with the requirement that I sift through advertising. And many do not provide the promised tokens. Quite frustrating. Once I have the satisfaction of completing my current game, I will likely delete the ap in favor of a more user friendly crossword game.

Love the puzzle, work it daily. Some new puzzles would be great as I seem to get the same ones often. Also you surely could be a lot more generous with Tokens. The new puzzle is very confusing!! More explanation would help out. I'm about to give up on it. Do not understand the new puzzle, more explanation would be nice!! Plus, more tokens please!! I completed my last puzzle entirely, nothing!! I had to delete it and re app?.. do get nothing for completing an entire puzzle?. Some prize should be considered. I lost tokens and coins!,,
Slow-building fun
by Mama3bucks on 2017/07/25 15:12
As a lot of the other reviewers have stated, the tokens you need to purchase new puzzles are a little hard to come by. That being said, I love having this app on my phone because it's good for a quick daily puzzle fix. The puzzles aren't too challenging, the coins to purchase hints are easy to come by, and the amount of puzzles is great, too. Love it! On a side note, my US friends-the answers are sometimes different from our word choice-so you'll have to look up their British counterparts.
Overall good
by bigberger123 on 2018/11/02 01:30
A nice game. Fun to tease my brain a little. Only problem I have is when I start to put in a word I know is right, the letters arnt there. I’m sure the word is “party” but there’s no Y letter available UNTIL I do another word that’s attached to it. Then go back to do party and suddenly the Y is there to finish the word. If this was fixed then I would definitely rate 5 stars. Just at least make sure all the letters are there to spell the word. I don’t want to have to come back to it and try again.
Simple fun is the best!
by bluegrasscotty on 2017/08/04 17:57
Very fun to play. Simple enough you don't have to strain the brain, but just enough to keep your melon sharp! Fun for the family. Easy enough my seven year old can join in. I don't think you'll be disappointed with this game! Scott Just keeps getting better! I've got my wife & 7 year old son hooked on Crossword! Love it!! I really like the added puzzle feature of token and chips for solving puzzles. Feel my mind just getting sharper and quick!
Hours of fun
by JonahPro on 2017/07/23 16:51
Have played this game for, literally, hours on end. As a retired guy, I think this helps keep me sharper, having to constantly be thinking whenever I have this app open. And it's a great way to relax too. However, after you reach certain point they make it VERY hard to get tokens and I absolutely refuse to purchase them. They even removed the spinning Prize Puzzle after awhile making it almost impossible to get Tokens.
Too many ads
by Jmbogli on 2019/02/08 02:12
I love this game and have been playing almost daily however I’m getting to the point of deleting because of how many ads there are. It is literally constant. You can’t go back to the main menu without sitting through two advertisements. I actually went into all the settings to see if I could pay for the game and remove ads but unfortunately even that’s not an option. I really hope the developers take these reviews into consideration because the ads are single handedly ruining the game.
Was great but each version is getting worse
by mokumax on 2019/02/07 13:49
I find myself quitting the app more than anything these days. It used to be you’d get an annoying ad 1-2 times per couple of games. Now you get 2 ads just to play 1 game and they are being deceptive using the App Store screen shot with a very small faint X in the corner to close it. Do you think you’ll get more downloads of the apps you advertise by trying to be deceptive? If we can’t trust you to deliver an ad that allows us to make the choice instead of trying to be dishonest about it do you think we’ll trust you? Shouldn’t have updated. 4 versions back was tolerable but as I said, it’s getting worse.
Overall good game
by 01of03 on 2018/03/20 06:10
Game is great - almost all the clues are well written (a couple here and there don’t make sense, but mostly fine), and it’s much more modern and straightforward than other crosswords. I’ve played this game for a few months now and I’ve enjoyed it. the downside to this game: It’s hard to get through it without spending a little money. You don’t necessarily HAVE to spend money to get farther - you can get by with tokens from the daily reward - but it’s more difficult down the line.
What Fun!
by Mobiustrip on 2017/09/02 14:42
Hot dog! Loads of challenges. Whoop dang... can I get my 20 tokens now? I'm back! It's still fun! Game has to come out of the U.K., some of the slang (inf) words were bizarre! Update: It's clear now what the game developers want, they want me to buy tokens. Watching the advertisements and the ad bar isn't enough. The daily tokens and earned coins are not enough to sustain game play. As you progress through the grid and exhaust the lower priced games tokens become scarce, unless you want to shell out some cash. Ah, good old greed. Adios "Crosswords"!
Only one complaint
by BRwoodcrafts on 2018/07/09 03:26
Love the game but when I get low on tokens it seems to take forever to find another game with the amount of tokens I have. I have almost deleted the game from my phone a couple times when I spend several minutes trying to find a game to work with the amount of tokens I have. It seems you make a lot of coins but hardly ever tokens. Make it give you tokens one game and coins the next. A very fun game to play. I hope I don’t have to give it up.
Changes letters
by dulinjenn on 2020/06/29 15:36
I have found that if I come back to a word & try to complete it again the previous letters given are different! And not because I had completed connected words either! I didn’t have any connecting words done & this game would still change my previous letters! For instance if the letters previously contained a “s”, then I would skip to the opposite side of the puzzle to try to figure out another word and then return to the previous word only to get totally different letters! This game cheats!!! Also has many British terms & slang that makes absolutely no sense in English!!!
Fun!
by Rapunzl on 2017/08/20 23:33
I love this game and think it's the best one out there in terms of how it is laid out and how it plays. Very easy to use and a great way to relax. The only thing that keeps it from being a 5-star game is needing to buy tokens to move forward and coins to get hints for those tougher words. Getting just 10 coins and having to wait for them to be given one by one is a problem. Wish they would fix the whole purchasing issue and make the game more affordable.
This app has gotten worse
by Francisco 0109 on 2020/07/04 02:01
When I first downloaded this app it was very clean of 30 secs ads. Now it’s constant and extremely annoying. So much that it takes the pleasure of using this app. Also getting tokens for free is also extremely not worth it. And many times when you do go thru the 10K requirements, the tokens do not get credited. Complained to to the Tapjoy team n you need an advertising ID. Which is not available on IOS devices. You have to download a 3rd party app. So this also becomes a hazel!! Which I didn’t do. It wasn’t that important. Nevertheless I’m removing the game apps from both of my devices. Not recommending this app anymore. Sorry. Thanks

Buggy
by Str33tcar on 2020/10/21 17:16
So you know, I’ve completed every last puzzle in all 7 different types of puzzles. I keep playing their daily fun fact quiz to see how long I can keep my continuous days streak alive for. The bug is in the pyramid puzzle portion. When you select a puzzle, it states that you can solve for free. If you decide to solve the puzzle, they charge you 5 tokens!😪
It's ok
by Amberth2003 on 2020/10/16 00:45
I wish you didn't need tokens to play a game. I also wish the crosswords were longer.
Repeats words, runs political advertisements
by nickname patrick on 2020/10/02 04:04
They run political advertisements during the game! The puzzles can be confusing since they use mixed nationality slang. You can have consecutive puzzles with the same words.
Update
by Tootie24400 on 2020/08/13 12:56
The new update only shows 2/3 of the key board on my I Pad now how do I get the full key board? Every nickname I have used has already been taken. So I am going to re rate it to 5 stars and see if my nickname will go thru.
More ads than play time
by Atomic Goats Breath on 2020/08/13 10:02
I played this for quite a while and enjoyed it a lot even though there were so many ads to watch to get the game tokens necessary to play. Ultimately however they stopped offering free tokens even for watching ads so I took it off my phone
Too many ads!!
by puzzler1118 on 2020/08/07 13:06
This app is fun and just challenging enough to complete the puzzles. There are way too many long ads that cannot be skipped, however, making for a frustrating experience.
Spelling or language discrepancy?
by MusicJoy1952 on 2020/08/03 04:59
I’ve notice a couple of words misspelled. One is the song “Hokey Pokey” which is what I taught my little students to sing and act out in kindergarten. In the puzzle the spelling is hokey bokey. Who created this puzzle? I love it but just wonder about the spelling.
Fun for whole family
by DinoDonnna on 2020/07/30 00:16
Just right for difficulty factor. I can include the whole family.
Not good
by Scbucki on 2020/07/23 17:55
Too many ads, no ad should be over 15 seconds, impossible to earn enough tokens to play. I know you don’t care so - Goodbye
The most annoying Ads automatically turning on speaker
by VeryAvgJoe on 2020/07/17 10:14
I accept that this app has ads. But to suddenly blast ads with high volume and no option for users to mute or specify no speakers for all ads, showed that the developer did not respect the app’s users. This is not acceptable.
Good app for the most part
by pptrt on 2020/07/13 13:37
Good crossword puzzle but one thing you should know first. Some of the words are slang terms used by the British that are unfamiliar to Americans and can make it difficult to complete the puzzle. Otherwise a good free puzzle.

Not that you care!
by Bonnie Kaye on 2020/07/02 20:58
Buttttt....I uninstalled this game before because I was having problems. This time you’ve taken all my tokens! I enjoy playing this game but it is extremely frustrating when it malfunctions!

Good short term
by Joshdv on 2020/06/17 16:33
Fun puzzles but eventually becomes a grind to have tokens. Can’t get enough free tokens to even play a single puzzle in a day. That combined with incredibly frequent ads makes it something to not finish once you run out of cheap puzzles.
Amazing

Northern Grandma
by Grandma Angell on 2020/05/31 14:29
The clues don’t match up with the answers. Clue: Eat with apple pie Answer: Custard One star frustrated with this game. Ready to erase it. It shouldn’t be that hard
Timer kind of ruins it
by Kroogan on 2020/05/20 01:22
Constantly have to open the app to use tokens for puzzles to play later. Dropped from 2 to 1 star bc the flashing "unlock next" levels now cost 11 tokens, making the game fully unplayable.
Okay, but sometimes the clues use British slang
by Rebeccakcoco on 2020/05/11 19:25
This app is okay but the clues are sometimes very confusing. Today one of the clues I encountered was “flat out, kipping” (???) and the word was “asleep”. I honestly had no idea what that meant. It’s happened a few times. I’m not sure the rest of the world knows British slang!
Great for the Brits
by ViolettedeParis on 2020/05/02 14:51
I like that the word spaces have great color contrast and the font and spaces aren’t tiny like on the other crossword apps. The clues and set up are great. As an American, I’m having to learn British English for this app, which is a combination of interesting and frustrating.
Decent difficulty curve, and functions well, but a few polishing tweaks would make this better
by Nasulo on 2020/04/27 20:58
This is a pretty good crossword app so far, and it’s free to play. My only complaint so far is that I hate when quests interrupt me during gameplay. Wish there would just be a quest log button that glows when you complete one.
Kate
by infiana kate on 2020/04/20 11:44
Puzzles were interrupted constantly by inappropriate, offensive, and spam advertising. Clues were not very helpfu
Too many ads!
by drfreee on 2020/04/12 04:32
Way too many ads! Some are impossible to remove
To many pop ups
by willbeme200 on 2020/04/10 17:12
I know a game needs to make money to stay in business ,but the amount of pop ups is crazy.
Not basic
by yasa321 on 2020/03/25 00:58
Too many ads, and when they come up there’s no option to exit and it won’t let you exit even after the ad is over. Too many distractions. Has potential to be great but no one wants to make a conventional game anymore. I want a puzzle like the book with no interruptions. That’s basically why people do crosswords, peace and quiet. This game is neither, unfortunately
Clues don’t fit the word
by Cartman1119 on 2020/03/21 02:24
Me and my girlfriend take turns doing these puzzles and one thing we have found is that some of the clues to the word do not fit the word itself. A lot of them don’t even make sense. “Person with club” = lame. That’s the clue to the word. Not kidding. Another issue we have is the informal words are.. useless, if slang is going to be a part of this game then it needs to be a word that everyone has heard or knows. Different areas use different slang so what might be right in the west might be the exact opposite in the east. Other then those issues it is very addicting, and very time passing so I have to give credit where credit is due.
Double Awards
by Tiki613 on 2020/03/17 07:42
On day 5 when I tap double rewards the video never downloads and my chance to gain more tokens are LOST!!’ If I want to play that day I have to BUY more tokens. NOT GOOD
Not bad
by Caucusjwfu on 2020/02/26 03:33
The amount of commercials are obnoxious. Like just opening a puzzle section or going back to the menu triggers a commercial. Come on. The other main issue that bothers me is when you spend 400 coins to reveal only what letters are in the word and then accidentally back out of doing that word, suddenly it doesn’t register that you purchased that hint and gives you a full set of letters again.
Game
by tulsa07 on 2020/02/21 03:21
Good game, but pretty quickly you get to the point where you can only play a game or two a day without buying tokens. British slang can be confusing and some words I’ve never heard before.
Greatest game

No Fun! No fun at all!
by jimmyluvsmusic on 2020/02/14 16:59
I downloade this a year ago. When you get closer to the end it demands you watch more videos and, limits you to a certain amount of videos per day. You need tokens to play but you can BUY tokens if you want?!? Wheeee! What fun....Not!
E
by Elizaneth Mosher on 2020/02/12 21:38
Really like the game. When are you putting up new crosswords? You all haven’t put up something new in a very long time.
This is the perfect App if you love Ads
by DV1991 on 2020/02/09 12:47
This is overload of ads. Even if you are in a puzzle you have to watch an ad to switch back to main menu, then watch another ad to play a new puzzle. So it’s double ads for every puzzle. Awesome. Greedy developers.
Ripoff
by Hate false advertisers on 2020/01/28 20:33
The problem with this app is once you reach a certain point you have no choice but to buy coins because all of the games are over 10 coins and you can't accumulate more than 10 coins without playing - it's a catch 22. I paid to remove ads and regret giving them a dime. It also is a rudimentary design compared to other crossword apps.
Only 100 Daily Puzzles?
by kf93210 on 2020/01/25 16:49
No more daily puzzles! It’s says I’ve completed them all. Also very glitchy on the Fact of the Day section. It doesn’t give credit for completing.

Odd glitch but a decent app
by robyn280 on 2020/01/23 20:57
A wide variety of puzzles that are fun and challenging but not too difficult. An odd glitch that I wish they’d fix—the app doesn’t recognize that I’ve completed all 100 of the “World’s Tallest” puzzles until I click on the category. Wouldn’t be a problem but completing that category unlocks a different category and it’s a hassle when I’ve got to jump through hoops because of a glitch.

Please fix the crashes. I don’t know if it’s because of something on my end or yours. Please look into it. It crashes 3 seconds into the app opening.
Frustrating
by JWUSR3452 on 2020/01/12 23:21
Frustrating! Why do you earn coins but can only pay for puzzles in tokens, which you rarely earn? Way too many ads. Glitchy. Goes black screen or white screen and doesn't recover. This app needs a lot of work. The concept is great, but too frustrating to use.
This one is for kids
by jamikoiv on 2020/01/08 07:32
Just a heads up I think this one is for kids. It kept giving hints and couldn’t figure out how to turn them off.
Made an in-app purchase but never received it
by DessThaBest on 2019/12/31 04:24
I purchased tokens and never received them. I tried contacting the developer but was unsuccessful. This was very frustrating. I had to reach out to Apple to get support, although they told me to contact the developer. I would continue the app if they would simply fix it and work on having better ways for customers to communicate concerning issues.
Really enjoy it, but...
by UmKelthume on 2019/12/29 17:37
Great game, BUT....I do Not receive the daily rewards...that Forces me to Purchase Tokens in order to play. That's slimy and shady. If you don't want to purchase All the time...don't get this game.
Opening the app
by uzumaki9 on 2019/12/25 06:19
Every time i try to open the app, it closes by itseft. This is driving me crazy. Fix this. It doesnt stay at least 10 seconds playing.
App closing
by JJcutor💜 on 2019/12/09 03:58
Played it everyday, but now it closes every time I try to use open it.
Loved it until it started glitching
by Nickolehuffman on 2019/12/07 15:37
I am a bit embarrassed to admit how many hours I have spent on this app. As a crossword enthusiast, i enjoy the challenges of the different puzzles. Sadly, out of nowhere, it started glitching and will immediately crashes. I’m disappointed, knowing that deleting the app will cause me to lose all of my work. 😕
No Response To Email
by Game/words on 2019/12/03 20:26
I emailed a few days ago about the failure of the app to launch. This issue had been occurring fir nearly a week. I enjoy this app and find it very challenging so I’m very Disappointed to not be able to play. Please fix this issue and please respond to my email. Thank you

2.7 app install
by 1 Oldsalt on 2019/11/29 23:30
I just installed the 2.7 and now when I select the crossword puzzle it comes up and closes out!
Adpocalypse
by Lame Frog on 2019/11/29 12:25
I understand the need for ads, but this is ridiculous. The game has a few bugs and some of the clues are incorrect. This also seems very British oriented and uses some of their slang. If not for the excessive ads, 3 out of 5.
Fun!
by Tookme6triestogetaname on 2019/11/27 11:54
This is an amazing pass of time, you learn new words by playing.
No real keyboard, only 12 random letters
by Arghiterrasedmyreview on 2019/11/18 07:22
No real full iPhone keyboard, only 12 random letters. I found it disorienting and not like a real crossword because of it. Deleted it.
This app would be great......
by TheWagonBaron on 2019/10/15 00:02
If they’re weren’t ads at almost every transition. I get putting ads into your game to either help support it or get people to buy an ad-free version but this app is overkill. Want to load a puzzle? Watch this ad. Want to go back to the main screen after finishing a puzzle? Here’s an ad. Accidental click out of a puzzle? Another ad and then a bonus ad when you try to go back into the puzzle. It’s. Too. Much. You shouldn’t have an ad on every single transition. I uninstalled because of this.
Ok app
by jetsetting teacher on 2019/09/21 00:34
Repetitious but fun enough to while away 10 mins. There are a few inaccuracies that I’ve found so far though which is annoying to me. The most glaring recently is a clue that said Middle Eastern capital, and the answer was Dubai, but having lived in Abu Dhabi for two years, I know Dubai is not the capital of the UAE, Abu Dhabi is. Dubai is just the most well-known of the 7 emirates. There have been a few others as well, but for the most part the clues are accurate, if not always good, and often repetitive.
Val
by val.L32 on 2019/09/18 15:00
I love this game and been playing for ages. Why oh why does it get stuck on some ads and refuses to move no matter how many times you try to close it. Please, please fix this problem.
British Developer?
by Noizeenoiz on 2019/09/10 16:42
I love word games, so initially I liked this. What annoyed me were some of the word choices. This game must have British developers because several of the words in each puzzle were not known to those in the US. I love BritBox which helped some, but even with hints (which cost coins that are not easily obtained unless you spend real money) I would end up making up something until it was right. When that worked, it ended up being a word I had never heard of even though I have a good vocabulary. More frustrating than fun.
Decent for free
by Chrish62704 on 2019/09/03 21:55
It’s a decent crossword puzzle app with plenty to keep you busy. However, the clues often use foreign idioms that make the answers difficult, unless you have a pretty good understanding of British slang. Apparently, kitting means asleep and a common household shrub is a cheese plant, neither of which are terms used often at all in the states. Either way, if you can get past this, it’s a decent crossword app.
Worlds biggest crossword

Becomes Unplayable Unless you buy more tokens.
by TMann34 on 2019/08/25 18:20
You can play free for quite awhile. It costs you tokens to open the new puzzles. You have a bank of ten that refill with time. Puzzles start costing more the further you progress. Then when you get down to around 800 puzzles left the puzzles cost 11 tokens. So in order to get more than 10 you must purchase or wait the 24 hours to play one puzzle. It’s a great app and the words get to be quite challenging after awhile. But why increase the cost to where you must pay to play? Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of a free app?
Kiddy game
by JazmynFL on 2019/08/23 23:56
What’s up with all the “quests” and side junk. I just wanted a plain old ordinary crossword for adult players, not a kiddy game.
Awesome game!
by DrBarr on 2019/08/10 15:23
The only thing I would recommend is maybe not showing ads for games I already own or doubling the tokens awarded. I love this game and will never stop playing! Well done.
From a kids point of view

It is to hard for kids that are younger than 15
Not Worth It!!!
by alien.zeebo on 2019/07/30 03:50
You will spend more time watching adds than you will working puzzles and the puzzles are not very good. Find another crossword app unless you like watching the same adds over and over and over again.
Love this app
by ***POPROCKS*** on 2019/07/21 05:54
What a great way to spend your downtime!!
It could be better
by Marvel-60 on 2019/07/19 01:05
It’s fun, but if it costs tokens to play then it should award tokens when you solve a puzzle, but it only awards coins. You should be able to buy tokens with the coins, but you can’t.

Enjoyable crossword varieties
by Dcamonkeys on 2019/07/08 15:30
I’ve played this game for several months and have been enjoying the variety of puzzles offered, although I’ve completed all of the Daily Diamonds, so will have to work on the rest of the puzzles. I’m enjoying the Fact of the Day, but wish I could see those that I’ve completed so I can access them again after I’ve forgotten them. Just be aware that the creators must be British, judging by the slang/informal terms used. I’ve tried other crossword apps, but this is the one that I’ve stuck with.
Suggestion
by Dwjonz on 2019/07/04 16:53
I like the variety of the different games you offer. I would suggest that when a game is finished that we be able to look at the finished puzzle to “admire” our hard work. Just make it so we hit a button to move off to the next puzzle.
Games okay but DO NOT fill out a survey for free coins
by Mwhaley919 on 2019/06/30 16:02
Seriously. I filled out a survey to get a few game coins for free and now my number constantly gets bombarded with spam calls and texts. There’s nothing I can do to stop it. There are no options to stop the calls or texts. Seriously annoying and went from liking this game to despising it.
Too many ads. Way too many.
by Chip Odos on 2019/06/19 19:29
All in all this is a good app. That said, the ads have been ever-increasing in regularity. Words of advice: (1) ALWAYS use coins to open a puzzle if possible. You'll earn coins much easier than tokens. (2) make sure you get your 5 free tokens and 1250 free coins EVERY day. You'll need the tokens to finish this game and the coins just make it a little easier.
Daily Diamond puzzle
by Thom9113 on 2019/06/10 13:50
Love this game but I still can’t figure out for the life of me how to get to the Daily Diamond puzzle!?! Any help out there?
Pay to Play Crap
by A Fatigued Celebrity on 2019/06/05 01:30
Free tokens are too infrequent, or require watching multiple ads (3+) just to get enough to work another puzzle, or you can pay for tokens. It’s a free app, I understand you have to get your money somehow, but you have so many in-app ads you could do away with tokens and just make the puzzles free to play at your own pace. Instead, I am deleting and moving on. I will never pay for crap like this that I can get truly free elsewhere in other apps.
Full of ads
by Smitherz65 on 2019/06/01 23:35
Games are fun but not worth the time putting up with all of the video ads.
You have to
by psugrla87 on 2019/06/01 15:52
You have to use your hard earned coins to play another crossword. Not for me, game was discarded
I really liked this until
by Pamkl on 2019/05/31 00:22
I did enough puzzles to no longer earn tokens and stopped being able to pay with coins. Yes, I get a few each day as a reward, but they go fast. Wish I could trade in my coins for tokens. The number of ads is annoying as well. When I run out of tokens, I'll be deleting the app. Not worth buying them.
Good game but sooo many ads
by dfc0972 on 2019/05/20 18:54
Want to play a game? Watch an ad. Finish it? Watch another. Play another game? Watch another ad after just watching one. The quests that earn you 250 coins often have requirements that you spend 500 or more on hints. No reason to do the quests.
Very fun and entertaining

Not really free
by mydik927 on 2019/05/06 09:06
Okay, so the download is free, they give you ten token through wait time, but after you complete so many puzzles, the token cost goes up into the 20s, but you max your wait tokens out at 10, I figured the might reward you tokens for completing a puzzle, nope, they give you coins!!! Like whipty doo, so they are subliminally forcing you to either wait extensive time between puzzles( checking in every day for daily bonuses) or buying tokens
One problem
by deet1738 on 2019/05/03 05:22
This problem arose about a year ago. I love this time passer and have completed the main one before this problem started. One I began the tallest, after an update, and once you complete a level, there’s no hoo rah... I know it’s been a while since that update, but before then it was like yay, another one down here’s some coins and a good job. Now it just tells me to go back to the home screen... how unclimatic is that!

Daily Diamond
by TinderIsGarbageNow on 2019/04/21 14:40
AFTER you have completed ALL the Daily Diamond puzzles, maybe stop the notification that you have one available to you. I want to see the star at the bottom that I’ve completed them all and no notification, or make more fresh ones. The feeling of accomplishment is nice, and this prevents it from happening.
Too many bugs/changes
by slytherin_______ on 2019/04/18 10:10
Lately whenever I try and double my daily rewards it doesn’t give me any at all, and after I completed quite a few puzzles in the World’s Biggest category it stopped letting me pay for puzzles with coins. I loved it when I first started but this is too many inconveniences.
Weird words
by Datdudeukno on 2019/04/17 07:57
There are a lot of slang, informal, and basically unused words (titter, snigger, anorak). Probably very British. Clues are very weird, or worded very strangely.
I just want todo a crossword puzzle.
by Releasethehounds on 2019/04/14 06:18

Great app except haven’t had any puzzles to do for months. When will you create more puzzles to be done?
Place not Saved
by BluesHarpist on 2019/04/04 23:34
The most annoying thing about the app is that the last puzzle you worked on has to be searched for each time you’ve closed the app. Some of the same hints are repeated, too. That has always annoyed me about most crossword publications, though.
Auto sends to App Store
by Amz9898 on 2019/04/04 07:00
In the middle of doing the puzzle, the app glitches and just keeps sending you to the App Store. I uninstalled. Pathetic.

by Suecq58 on 2019/03/18 08:40
I enjoy the game, but the ads are annoying, so I paid for NO ADS. Yet, ads are still popping up. It’s very frustrating! I would have given 4/5 stars if the ads weren’t still popping up.
It would be better if.....
by DiRosie61 on 2019/03/17 00:07
You gave TOKENS for every puzzle you complete! There’s NO WAY to get tokens (which are needed to play other crosswords and you don’t give the option to watch videos to get tokens!) and miraculously when you complete a challenge, you get MAYBE 2-3 tokens and a crap load of coins! You need 7 or more tokens to play a crossword. That’s just a sleazy way to get ppl to BUY the tokens! So when you do that, most ppl with connecting brain cells, see the writing on the wall and they move on to other crosswords that don’t do that. Although I love the game, I won’t buy tokens for that reason. You took a great game and made it all about the money.
Good when it’s working
by Storck718 on 2019/03/14 00:34
I like the crosswords themselves, but this app is very buggy. It displays ads that force you to play their games and then crash the app. I don’t mind watching videos for free tokens or coins, but forcing me to play the game and go to the App Store just to get back to my game and have it still stuck in the ad is really frustrating. Not sure it’s worth the puzzle itself
Great game
by MattTC11 on 2019/03/08 19:01
Fun and addictive. However, I wish there was an option to get rid of ads, they become quite annoying.
No satisfaction, very frustrating
by Mae_User on 2019/03/02 18:03
I was stuck on the last word, had my whole family working on it to figure it out. One of us tapped a few random letters in and accidentally solved the puzzle, and the whole screen was immediately covered by a completion dialogue. I cant go back to see the completed puzzle, and we’ll never know what that last answer was. At least with a newspaper puzzle, you get the answers along with the next paper. :( I’m uninstalling this very frustrating app.
Fun at first...
by JLRMforever on 2019/03/01 23:07
But there isn’t a way to get free tokens (can’t watch ads to get them anymore), & I refuse to buy them! I can only play it a few minutes each day. Also, British Cryptics, Codewords, Word Grid are too hard, so I can’t get into Quote Falls. Tokens need to be offered with ads. Also, when you play, it helps to realize the puzzles were created from a British point-of-view. I’m nearly done & will delete the app soon.
Ok for a freebie
by BeeJayCee01 on 2019/02/25 23:48
Couldn’t believe that this is a puzzle based on words and one clue misspelled the answer! How dumb!!! FYI: A workshop clamp is a VISE, not a VICE. Pronounce with an s that is closer to a z sound, not a sibilant s.
Not getting earned tokens
by NotHappySamy on 2019/02/20 17:04
3 times now I have completed the tasks needed to earn free tokens, and have not received them. I should have received over 3000 tokens.
Pretty good for a free app
by moviegirl611 on 2018/07/11 05:08
I like the fact that there is a new puzzle everyday and there a few others you can play right off the bat. As other’s mentioned, the letters are given to you (some you need and some you don’t) and it took me a while to figure out that even correct letters will be cleared unless you get the entire word correct. The clues are sometimes a stretch in my opinion and sometimes they use British slang and don’t mention their doing it...had to guess “prang” today as this word is not used in the US. Overall level of difficulty is easy to moderate. Yes this is a free app so you won’t get unlimited games...you get a few and then as you play, you win tokens or points to unlock other games. I’ve been playing a good few weeks almost every day and have always had a few puzzles to play. Also with the free app, there are ads...I just wait a few secs until the little x mark shows up to close the pop up and then I return to my next crossword. Pretty nice little app.
It's lots of fun....but
by Hip Didler on 2017/08/08 23:01
This is the fourth time I've tried posting a review (so I can get 20 free tokens) and each time it never posts, so let's try again.... I play this game everyday and it's lots of fun. I like the way the game is laid out and it's easy to use. However there are a couple of issues: the amount of tokens you need to open up a new puzzle is crazy, particularly when you either have to watch ad after ad to get them, or buy them. Yes, if you come back everyday they will give you tokens, but at a certain point you would have to come back every day for 3 days straight just to have enough tokens to open 1 puzzle. The other issue is some of the words they use I've never even heard of before (I've been doing crosswords for 30+ yrs) A lot of the clues are also English (UK). Other then those issues, it's great. Now let's see if I get my free tokens!
Alright but annoying progress pop ups
by Duskwitch6 on 2018/01/27 16:34
I've been playing for a couple days and my biggest complaint is it seems that every other minute a new pop up is appearing telling me I've completed a goal in the quest - "wow, you found a word starting with S? Congrats! Let's interrupt your gameplay to tell you and make you tap several times to get back to it!" I don't care. And the game decides what words to give me so it's not like I've done anything special. Just show me the goals when I open a puzzle and show me when I win tokens for meeting goals. Otherwise it's alright, I've been having fun. I'd prefer not to see the set of letters it provides for each word until I tap to reveal them because it makes it too easy. I've played enough jumbled word games that my brain automatically picks words out of them, so I have to cover them up with my finger if I want an actual crossword experience and not a jumbled letter game. I'd like to see an option so you could choose your preference.
Fun, with just enough amount of Challenge! - Update
by Konakid63 on 2018/10/04 06:14
Fun & Challenging, but not too difficult to avoid it from being frustrating! I like the fact that I can complete the puzzles when I have time. Other entertainment apps require you to "check-in daily", or complete a game before closing the app, or you will have to replay it upon returning (as an example). I may not open the app for a few months, yet I know that my material will be safe for whenever I do. UPDATE: OCT 2018 - I’m enjoying the changes (improvements, modifications) that were recently done .. except for one item. When I click on “Main Menu”, WHYYYY does the app question my decision????! To me, there’s no reason for this .. and it’s just really annoying!!! REALLY!!!!! It’s not like my decision is going to lock me in, nor cost me money; so it just doesn’t make any sense. Maybe I’m the only one ... ??
Fun but...
by monie1952 on 2017/08/30 18:31
I enjoy the puzzles but cost of new ones versus time it takes to get more is too high. Looks like there's a limit of 10 tokens to get at the rate of 3 minutes per token. But that eliminates a lot of puzzles because you quickly run out of puzzles that cost 10 or less tokens. Also I can never get free tokens by watching videos because it crashes either before video starts or right before video ends. Frustrating. Update: nothing has changed. Doesn't seem that reviews make much difference to the game developers. I've gone about as far as I can with the biggest puzzle since I can't get enough tokens to do at least a third of them. I'll work on the worlds tallest until I run out of options. I'd like to be able to complete these but if I have to open everyday for a week and not play just to get enough tokens for one section it really isn't worth it to me. I'll move on to other crossword apps.
Fun and challenging
by ALP735735 on 2017/08/21 14:04
I read several of the other reviews for this game, and I went into the game with an open mind. So many times it seems that people want to play games nonstop, without anything to remind them that they should put their phone or tablet down (such as running out of tokens or waiting for a timer to expire). When I read reviews about how few tokens that you were given, but you get more tokens the following day I thought this was probably one of those situations. I am not one of those people that cannot put my phone down, but I still get frustrated with how few tokens you are given compared to the number of tokens required to play each game. The gameplay itself is very fun, there have been a handful of times that I had to use the hint, which costs 300 tokens for one letter, and after you beat an entire puzzle you might possibly get those 300 tokens back. This does not seem like an even exchange. If you only get 300 tokens when you solve an entire puzzle, it seems that 300 tokens should solve the entire word for you, rather than just give you one letter!!! Having said those things I do still enjoy playing the game, I just have to overlook those shortcomings of the game.
Fun Game
by HocusAndPocus123 on 2017/11/13 02:08
Not happy with the fact it cost coins to play and then so many coins used for hints is ridiculous and only get one letter for the use of the hint. Some of the words are way out in left field never heard of them so have to cheat on the game just to be able to go on to next level or stay stuck because you run out of coins the game is fun and can be addicting if the issues get fixed plus would like more color choices more vivid and also hate that when you click on a box the tokens for a box are all different and scattered all around if your going to do different ones put them on different levels or rows so we can chose where to go instead of searching for the less token ones to play and it takes more time we just want to play not search to play if we wanted to search we would find a search and find game instead
Not bad, but..
by Opinion02122 on 2017/07/17 16:10
I have only played the "easy" puzzles. And, even in the "easy" puzzles they use words that I've never seen, or heard of, in my long life. I hate puzzles that use words you've never heard of, and, though I only found a few per puzzle, so far, most of these puzzles have them. There are also spelling errors in the clues, and answers! Scummage for scrimmage in one puzzle. Some puzzles have clues that refer to "starred" clues that are part of another clue. But there ARE NO starred clues! So what's that about? Seems that some of these were written for printed puzzles, where some clues WERE starred, and the author never checked them before submitting them to this app. The other words can still be challenging and fun when you figure them out, so I'll still play, but it has flaws.
Fun but slow!
by Seth Draven on 2018/05/18 08:00
This crossword app is great, I love how massive it is—there are so many puzzles! My only issue is that the green tokens take a little too long to stack up when you play every day and are trying to progress through/unlock the more token-costly levels. I’m only really writing this review because they’ll toss 20 green tokens your way if you leave a review. Overall it’s fun and just the right amount of challenging. Also, however, many puzzles have the same exact answer in them that they had in the puzzle right before that one, which gets old fast. But like I said, it’s a huge grid of puzzles; for free you can’t really expect ‘em all to have different answers for each and every clue.
Fun but requires a ton of patience
by atristacrat on 2017/07/12 18:34
It's very fun. But apparently once you reach a certain point you can only get tokens by either purchasing them or by coming back to the game each day and earning free ones by watching videos or responding to ads/surveys. This makes it very slow to build up. What can I say? I guess I'm not as patient as I think I am, because I want to complete the board but I can't due to the decreased flow of tokens. I used to get them all the time through completing puzzles and being given bonus ones where you pay in coins to complete it in exchange for a tokens reward. Now I don't seem to have that option. So if you don't mind limiting yourself to one puzzle per day or even per week (depending on how many tokens it costs you to open it)... you'll be very happy with this game/app.
Fun Puzzles
by Abqaiq67 on 2017/08/10 07:05
I was playing game when it suddenly changed format. Interesting. Still hate that I've had to start over so many times. 😘 Like the puzzles just wish it would save when I have to get a new phone so I could finally finish it. I'm adding this!!!! I had to get a new phone again and this is the ONLY app that didn't back anything up. VERY DISAPPOINTED as I like this game but am fed up with having to keep starting over (especially when I was almost done). What's the point!!! I'm really disappointed that when I got a new phone and had to download this app again I lost ALL the games I had finished and all the coins and tokens I had collected. I backed everything up and most apps brought back up all I had done/ collected. Also I continue to get this message when I click to get reward for posting to Twitter. Whoa there! There is no request token for this page. That's the special key we need from applications asking to use your Twitter account. Please go back to the site or application that sent you here and try again; it was probably just a mistake. Go to Twitter. Well, I'm finally a few games from completion. Hopefully I get done for once. Had for more crosswords to play.
Addictive! But limited
by Muse1975 on 2017/08/29 10:07
Love the game but I'm facing the same issue as all the other reviewers...too few tokens rewarded each day as compared to the massive amount of tokens required to open a new puzzle. Currently, I have to open the game each day for a few measly tokens in order to play on. At the rate I'm going, it'll be at least 2-4 days before I can play 1 puzzle (which I usually complete in a matter of minutes). Just doesn't seem right. Of course I can always buy the tokens but some puzzles cost as much as 30 or 40 tokens each. There's an offer of $9.99 for a 1000 tokens - which is a lot for a crossword puzzle. And I haven't done the math but I'm not even sure if that's enough to complete the game. There used to be a feature where I could exchange coins instead of tokens for a fresh puzzle but that seems to have gone away. Why award us coins when there's no use for it anymore? Please bring back the coin exchange option!! Those things aside, I love the game and can play it all day. Maybe this is just the developer's way to force me to pace myself!
Fun, if the Ads Stop
by ptruby16 on 2017/12/14 22:55
I'm only here for the 20 tokens tbh. I wanted a free to play crossword app with lots of puzzles to pass the time. This app delivers pretty well. They repeat a lot of small words like END and MAD, but I get why. They need to fill up space. The worst part of the app, which isn't the token/coin system (they kinda need a way to keep people from solving all of them at once), is the saturation of ads. Every time you go back into the Map View from a particular puzzle, they give you an ad. If you complete a puzzle, they show an ad. The ads you watch for extra coins and tokens are even longer, but those are optional and I guess if I click on those it's my own fault. Basically, if they reduced the ads even 25% that would be fine. Otherwise fun app.
Fun, but limited!
by catone3 on 2017/07/22 07:29
I have to play this every day to earn tokens for free by watching advertisements because I don't want to buy tokens just to play a "free" game. But I am limited on how much I can play because the game has limits as to how many tokens you can earn everyday! As the puzzles get harder they require more tokens to unlock. You can only watch five 30 second video advertisements daily to get a few free tokens. The videos are so repetitive. Ugh! I wish the game would let you earn more tokens and faster! I am almost done with the whole game ... I'm glad they added the tallest puzzle cause I was wondering what I was going to do next! Lol
Keep working on the fine tuning, developers
by ace2u2009 on 2018/12/30 21:34
Good concept but needs work. First off, check your dictionary. The clue was “drainage ditch.” The answer should have been “dike,” but the only way the puzzle would accept it is if I subbed a “y” for the “i.” Ummm.... Second, the “progress” pop ups are annoying and insulting. “Congratulations! You found 5 three-letter words!” You have to tap several times to get back to being able to play the game. If the game is advertised to make you smarter, it should live up to its claim and not waste time with meaningless rewards. Personally I could do without the letter bank completely. May be good for a little kids’ version, but not for adults. I’ll delete the app after this, but I look forward to a better version in t(e near future.
Okay...
by Cat1131 on 2018/01/05 03:35
So, this game can be really fun. However, it’s also really frustrating. There are a lot of words used MULTIPLE times (example: “sweets” is used at least ten times so far). Some of the clues are extremely bizarre and don’t make sense. (Field = world ??) Earning tokens is a nightmare. I downloaded an app and played for 30+ minutes to get over 300 tokens... and didn’t get them. Don’t count on support ever responding to you. Some of the quests are nearly impossible. 3 words with the letter Q? It took me about 25 puzzles to get that one. And I’m not sure how the timer quests work... they don’t accurately represent how long I’ve played. When I asked, no one ever responded. It could be such a great game...but it doesn’t feel like the developers are willing to put in the time to get there.
Yes and no
by cswrawr on 2018/02/10 05:03
Fairly entertaining, has kept my attention well. You need to either be English or an Anglophile to get 90% of the informal words. Calling it a giant crossword is a misnomer as it's actually a few hundred tiny crosswords and the number of hints and words that repeat is crazy. I've typed in "spade" "clever" and "tears" at least a half a dozen times each. There's more repeat words than unique ones. And I agree with other reviews stating the amount of coins to open some of them is too high, particularly when half the time the ads to earn coins freeze up and the app has to be crashed resulting in no extra coins.
Not enough tokens
by Karen - Nc on 2018/03/20 19:24
I enjoyed playing the puzzles until rounds cost over 14 tokens, which is half of the "Big" board. The max stored is 10, with an option to earn up to 5 tokens per day for watching ads. You also win tokens by completing quests, which are things like, "find 5 words ending with" a random letter. There is a chance to play a special round for tokens, signified by a rotating coin on the board. I've gotten one opportunity in 25 consecutive days of play. I got hopeful when the "tower" board offered rounds under 10 tokens, but that didn't last a second round. Really, this app is fun for a week or two. Then you just check in long enough to collect tokens (some rounds are 50 tokens).
Ends up Pay to play
by Elevert on 2017/10/04 21:11
I love the idea and solved almost half of the puzzles before I started having issues being able to afford new puzzles. Each puzzle cost tokens and you don't earn them for free fast enough. The ads are already annoying after completing every puzzle. At first they let you buy puzzles with coins which earn you tokens on completion but at a certain point you can't buy any more with coins. Also on the tallest puzzle it makes it seem like you can buy a puzzle with coins, but when you try it just says to complete the current chapter. So coins become useless unless you want to eliminate/solve letters for a clue. Fun at first but don't waste your time. They should make plenty of money on the annoying ads but instead want to make more money on selling tokens as well.
Fun enough
by Danish42 on 2017/07/22 09:04
Uses a lot of "proper" English terms, which may be unfamiliar to some. Sometimes the clue suggests a verb, but the answer is a noun. I'm usually a completionist for games, but don't think I'll follow through with this. As other reviews note, the game becomes slow-going once you reach a certain tier of puzzles and coins/tokens are harder to earn. Heck, wrote this just for the 20 free tokens. Ads pop up between almost every screen, though that's commonplace in a lot of games now anyways. Overall, it gives me something to do that's a bit more challenging and intelligent than a Bejeweled knock-off.
Finally, a crossword puzzle I like!
by Sweet Bre on 2017/11/06 18:43
I was Looking for a crossword puzzle game that would be challenging and fun at the same time. I’ve tried many, but this is the only game that’s held my interest. The only thing is, I don’t like the fact that I have to use tokens to level up to new puzzles. I thought once the puzzle was completed I could keep leveling up to new ones —I was wrong. Besides that small Hang-up, I’m giving this game 5 stars, which is something I rarely do. P.S. I think the tokens could be used to help the player —sort of like power ups.
Extremely Excessive Ads
by Marine8914 on 2018/09/21 01:15
Definitely one of the better crossword puzzle apps. If it weren’t for the nonstop ads it would be the best. I understand free apps run ads to make money but this is extremely excessive. You open the app, you get an ad. You enter one of the boards, you get an ad. You complete a puzzle, you get an ad. You leave a puzzle and go to the main menu, you guessed it! Another ad!! Even cutting the amount of ads in half or even by a third, would make it a lot better. The only other issue I have encountered is that some of the clues make absolutely no sense because the answer they are looking for isn’t a correct answer for that clue.
Clues don’t fit the word
by Cartman1119 on 2020/03/21 02:24
Me and my girlfriend take turns doing these puzzles and one thing we have found is that some of the clues to the word do not fit the word itself. A lot of them don’t even make sense. “Person with club” = lame. That’s the clue to the word. Not kidding. Another issue we have is the informal words are.. useless, if slang is going to be a part of this game then it needs to be a word that everyone has heard or knows. Different areas use different slang so what might be right in the west might be the exact opposite in the east. Other then those issues it is very addicting, and very time passing so I have to give credit where credit is due.
It would be better if.....
by DiRosie61 on 2019/03/17 00:07
You gave TOKENS for every puzzle you complete! There’s NO WAY to get tokens (which are needed to play other crosswords and you don’t give the option to watch videos to get tokens!) and miraculously when you complete a challenge, you get MAYBE 2-3 tokens and a crap load of coins! You need 7 or more tokens to play a crossword. That’s just a sleazy way to get ppl to BUY the tokens! So when you do that, most ppl with connecting brain cells, see the writing on the wall and they move on to other crosswords that don’t do that. Although I love the game, I won’t buy tokens for that reason. You took a great game and made it all about the money.
Improvement, Perhaps.
by NotQuiteAntiquatedButClose on 2017/07/15 08:20
I'm not claiming any MENSA DNA, but finally the several new puzzles I've done have contained new, multisyllabic, challenging words. I haven't relied on using Wordplay (or any other on-line CW help) so my times aren't remarkable. But, at the same time, my goals have changed. I want to become more self-reliant. On-line puzzle help programs remind me of SNIPER programs used to give some eBay bidders an unfair advantage, for example. Would be nice if these crossword puzzles had a completely even playing field. In any event, I am having more fun while finally experiencing frustration with these games. It's great.
Love this game
by Zacker001 on 2017/07/25 04:52
I love this game i play it all the time! Its not too hard but not easy and the fact that you can buy letters is great along with the free coins you get for watching a commercial is good because you can use the coins to buy new letters without spending any real money... lets face it, if it wasn't for that i would have deleted this app long ago! But i love it just the way it is so don't go wrecking it by changing it around! It's great as is... keep up the good work now, about those 20 free tokens? Ummm yeah, wheres those tokens again?
Fun but a bit nerve wracking
by LABete100 on 2017/07/12 20:56
I like this game. Most of the words are easy, but it does make you think of the answers since there isn't as much crossover between the across and down squares as in normal crosswords. My only complaint is that I'm really not sure of the coin/token usage rules. I would play more, but I don't want to end up inadvertently getting charged real money for purchases I didn't mean to make. The new tower puzzle is interesting, but it's downright mean to have the spinning coin "token" puzzles turn out to be locked unless I first pay for all of the "tower" puzzles!
Fun, but annoying
by BbForever4512 on 2017/09/10 21:00
I am posting this review purely for the 20 tokens it's supposed to give me. I enjoy playing this whenever I have time to kill, and it's really useful if you have to stand in a long line. It's the BEST for amusement park waits. Also, since I think it's based in the U.K., the hints for English slang words are really challenging and have some pretty funny answers if you're used to U.S. English. However, wracking up "tokens" is frustrating if you don't want to shell out your own cash for them. I have literally thousands of "coins" and have no way to spend them on anything useful.
Enjoyable crossword varieties
by Dcamonkeys on 2019/07/08 15:30
I’ve played this game for several months and have been enjoying the variety of puzzles offered, although I’ve completed all of the Daily Diamonds, so will have to work on the rest of the puzzles. I’m enjoying the Fact of the Day, but wish I could see those that I’ve completed so I can access them again after I’ve forgotten them. Just be aware that the creators must be British, judging by the slang/informal terms used. I’ve tried other crossword apps, but this is the one that I’ve stuck with.
Frustratingly fun
by L@ur3n 123456789012345 on 2017/11/16 03:27
The puzzles are fun, though they reuse words way too much. I got really into it, until the number of tokens required to play the game exceeded 10 tokens, which is the most you can earn automatically. After you complete a puzzle, you get either coins (95%) or tokens (5%). And only every other day do they allow you to watch 5 videos to earn a token each. The option to earn more tokens for free doesn’t work. You don’t download an app and open it, etc and it doesn’t credit you the tokens. Bottom line is I completed over 300 puzzles and now I’m stuck. It’s a broken system.
Fun but may require willpower
by Soccabeya on 2017/07/15 02:44
It's a fun game and as crosswords go it's a good challenge without being impossible. The only downside is it costs tokens to play each puzzle and so you kind of have to pace yourself because you only earn so many tokens per day. You also earn tokens for winning quests, but at a certain point you can beat all the quests and still need tokens. So if you don't want to pay for tokens, you just need to pace yourself so you don't use up all your tokens.
Great game!
by Crickette USA on 2018/05/04 11:56
This is a great crossword puzzle. It’s fun, easy, and a perfect way to spend some downtime. I have to say that being in America, I don’t always get the clues for some of the words we don’t normally use here, but that makes it more interesting with needing to use “reason” with how words are structured in order to complete the squares. It’s also fun to learn a vocabulary of someplace other than the US. I also love the daily crossword; I’m up to about 250 consecutive days! I’d recommend this app to anyone who loves crosswords.
Really good but..
by Erika199973 on 2017/08/25 22:33
I've been playing this for a long time and have beaten the original puzzles. With the update they added the tallest crossword or something to that extent and with these puzzles (which I think are more challenging) I don't get any sort of reward when I complete them. So my coins and tokens are just dwindling and there's no way to get any back sans the daily puzzles whose payout is dismal at best. I'm wondering if it's just a glitch but it should be resolved. Other than that I love the game and will continue to play for a long time!
Becomes Unplayable Unless you buy more tokens.
by TMann34 on 2019/08/25 18:20
You can play free for quite awhile. It costs you tokens to open the new puzzles. You have a bank of ten that refill with time. Puzzles start costing more the further you progress. Then when you get down to around 800 puzzles left the puzzles cost 11 tokens. So in order to get more than 10 you must purchase or wait the 24 hours to play one puzzle. It’s a great app and the words get to be quite challenging after awhile. But why increase the cost to where you must pay to play? Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of a free app?
Interesting
by Debster r on 2017/07/14 19:14
I enjoy this game. It is interesting and just challenging enough to keep me engaged. The one downfall it says free but it really wants you to spend money on the tokens. Some of them take so much that I can only play daily a small amount to keep earning them . The coins really do nothing. Occasion you can use them to buy them. The ads are sometimes annoying particularly now that they have sound. It also tends to lock up. I am almost finished with the whole grid and am anxious to see what happens.
Fun but frustrating
by Over-obligated User on 2017/07/14 02:59
I love the challenge of crosswords. This ap meets that goal, but it is difficult to play without purchasing tokens. Since I will not pay to play, it's taking some time to complete the puzzle. I'm relying on the daily small supply of tokens and a few provided free by viewing advertising and videos. The free tokens often come with the requirement that I sift through advertising. And many do not provide the promised tokens. Quite frustrating. Once I have the satisfaction of completing my current game, I will likely delete the ap in favor of a more user friendly crossword game.
Pohpu
by Pohpu on 2018/03/06 22:51
Love the puzzle, work it daily. Some new puzzles would be great as I seem to get the same ones often. Also you surely could be a lot more generous with Tokens. The new puzzle is very confusing!! More explanation would help out. I'm about to give up on it. Do not understand the new puzzle, more explanation would be nice!! Plus, more tokens please!! I completed my last puzzle entirely, nothing!! I had to delete it and re app?.. do get nothing for completing an entire puzzle?. Some prize should be considered. I lost tokens and coins!,,
Slow-building fun
by Mama3bucks on 2017/07/25 15:12
As a lot of the other reviewers have stated, the tokens you need to purchase new puzzles are a little hard to come by. That being said, I love having this app on my phone because it's good for a quick daily puzzle fix. The puzzles aren't too challenging, the coins to purchase hints are easy to come by, and the amount of puzzles is great, too. Love it! On a side note, my US friends-the answers are sometimes different from our word choice-so you'll have to look up their British counterparts.
Overall good
by bigberger123 on 2018/11/02 01:30
A nice game. Fun to tease my brain a little. Only problem I have is when I start to put in a word I know is right, the letters arnt there. I’m sure the word is “party” but there’s no Y letter available UNTIL I do another word that’s attached to it. Then go back to do party and suddenly the Y is there to finish the word. If this was fixed then I would definitely rate 5 stars. Just at least make sure all the letters are there to spell the word. I don’t want to have to come back to it and try again.
Simple fun is the best!
by bluegrasscotty on 2017/08/04 17:57
Very fun to play. Simple enough you don't have to strain the brain, but just enough to keep your melon sharp! Fun for the family. Easy enough my seven year old can join in. I don't think you'll be disappointed with this game! Scott Just keeps getting better! I've got my wife & 7 year old son hooked on Crossword! Love it!! I really like the added puzzle feature of token and chips for solving puzzles. Feel my mind just getting sharper and quick!
Hours of fun
by JonahPro on 2017/07/23 16:51
Have played this game for, literally, hours on end. As a retired guy, I think this helps keep me sharper, having to constantly be thinking whenever I have this app open. And it's a great way to relax too. However, after you reach certain point they make it VERY hard to get tokens and I absolutely refuse to purchase them. They even removed the spinning Prize Puzzle after awhile making it almost impossible to get Tokens.
Too many ads
by Jmbogli on 2019/02/08 02:12
I love this game and have been playing almost daily however I’m getting to the point of deleting because of how many ads there are. It is literally constant. You can’t go back to the main menu without sitting through two advertisements. I actually went into all the settings to see if I could pay for the game and remove ads but unfortunately even that’s not an option. I really hope the developers take these reviews into consideration because the ads are single handedly ruining the game.
Was great but each version is getting worse
by mokumax on 2019/02/07 13:49
I find myself quitting the app more than anything these days. It used to be you’d get an annoying ad 1-2 times per couple of games. Now you get 2 ads just to play 1 game and they are being deceptive using the App Store screen shot with a very small faint X in the corner to close it. Do you think you’ll get more downloads of the apps you advertise by trying to be deceptive? If we can’t trust you to deliver an ad that allows us to make the choice instead of trying to be dishonest about it do you think we’ll trust you? Shouldn’t have updated. 4 versions back was tolerable but as I said, it’s getting worse.
Overall good game
by 01of03 on 2018/03/20 06:10
Game is great - almost all the clues are well written (a couple here and there don’t make sense, but mostly fine), and it’s much more modern and straightforward than other crosswords. I’ve played this game for a few months now and I’ve enjoyed it. the downside to this game: It’s hard to get through it without spending a little money. You don’t necessarily HAVE to spend money to get farther - you can get by with tokens from the daily reward - but it’s more difficult down the line.
What Fun!
by Mobiustrip on 2017/09/02 14:42
Hot dog! Loads of challenges. Whoop dang... can I get my 20 tokens now? I'm back! It's still fun! Game has to come out of the U.K., some of the slang (inf) words were bizarre! Update: It's clear now what the game developers want, they want me to buy tokens. Watching the advertisements and the ad bar isn't enough. The daily tokens and earned coins are not enough to sustain game play. As you progress through the grid and exhaust the lower priced games tokens become scarce, unless you want to shell out some cash. Ah, good old greed. Adios "Crosswords"!
Only one complaint
by BRwoodcrafts on 2018/07/09 03:26
Love the game but when I get low on tokens it seems to take forever to find another game with the amount of tokens I have. I have almost deleted the game from my phone a couple times when I spend several minutes trying to find a game to work with the amount of tokens I have. It seems you make a lot of coins but hardly ever tokens. Make it give you tokens one game and coins the next. A very fun game to play. I hope I don’t have to give it up.
Changes letters
by dulinjenn on 2020/06/29 15:36
I have found that if I come back to a word & try to complete it again the previous letters given are different! And not because I had completed connected words either! I didn’t have any connecting words done & this game would still change my previous letters! For instance if the letters previously contained a “s”, then I would skip to the opposite side of the puzzle to try to figure out another word and then return to the previous word only to get totally different letters! This game cheats!!! Also has many British terms & slang that makes absolutely no sense in English!!!
Fun!
by Rapunzl on 2017/08/20 23:33
I love this game and think it's the best one out there in terms of how it is laid out and how it plays. Very easy to use and a great way to relax. The only thing that keeps it from being a 5-star game is needing to buy tokens to move forward and coins to get hints for those tougher words. Getting just 10 coins and having to wait for them to be given one by one is a problem. Wish they would fix the whole purchasing issue and make the game more affordable.
This app has gotten worse
by Francisco 0109 on 2020/07/04 02:01
When I first downloaded this app it was very clean of 30 secs ads. Now it’s constant and extremely annoying. So much that it takes the pleasure of using this app. Also getting tokens for free is also extremely not worth it. And many times when you do go thru the 10K requirements, the tokens do not get credited. Complained to to the Tapjoy team n you need an advertising ID. Which is not available on IOS devices. You have to download a 3rd party app. So this also becomes a hazel!! Which I didn’t do. It wasn’t that important. Nevertheless I’m removing the game apps from both of my devices. Not recommending this app anymore. Sorry. Thanks
