    I have been using this for a while and completed quite a few games( biggest,tallest, sayings, daily diamond 75%, cryptic clues) . I had to rest my phone. When I reinstalled the app -all my data had gone and I am really disappointed. Uninstalled the app as I donot want to start afresh.

  • It's lots of fun....but Aug 8, 2017

    By Hip Didler
    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!

    Too much, do this, do that, do it now, our game, do it now. Uninstalled, I was quite happy playing game at my own pace. I hate games that try to hurry me, that's why I'm gone. If any other of this developers games start to do the same, I will uninstall them also.
  • Alright but annoying progress pop ups Jan 27, 2018

    By Duskwitch6
    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 Oct 4, 2018

    By Konakid63
    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... Aug 30, 2017

    By monie1952
    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.

    Really enjoy this game as it gets you thinking, but, the tokens stop going up at 10 (which isn't enough to do a puzzle once you've played a while) and then they won't let you watch any videos to get more. It's as if you Have to buy tokens in order to play. Would be 5 stars if that little niggle wasn't just that.

    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.

    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

    I really like this game, some of the questions are very easy but overall it is a good difficulty. It's the best crossword I have played and I have tried many of them. The only drawback is you can't save your progress and transfer it to another device, for this reason I have had to start again twice with getting new phones and I had done a lot of levels both times but even with this it is still worthy of 5 stars.
  • Not bad, but.. Jul 17, 2017

    By Opinion02122
    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.

    What an absolute wind up. To get more tokens you can play a different game & when you get to a certain level on the other game tou then recieve tokens. A few day's ago i got to the level on a mafia game (i actually got past the leve) but never recieved the tokens promised, it was 5,400 something. So they recieved a commision by promising palyers rewards for having a go at a different game then don't pay out. That's a disgusting way to treat the player's of your games & i do want my reward!!!

    The game is good and I enjoy the different modes of word puzzles included. But the interstitial adverts are just *way* too much. I played through the entire World's Largest Picross and never had this many adds play. And they're not just when you complete a level or unlock, you get forced ads play when you return to the main menu to chose a different game mode. Good game. Ruined by too many ads

    Would have gave it 5 stars if the progress could be carried over to other Android devices. I've lost all mine now :( it shouldn't be hard to implement cloud based/Google play based saving in this day and age! I tried copying the core files but it didn't work yet it did with WBPC?! I guess titanium backup could have done it but I don't want to root my new phone.

    I've played this for a long time, but now it's getting really annoying. I used to be able to play every day, but now it takes DAYS to earn enough tokens (as many as 50) to play a puzzle that might only have a dozen words. I tried watching an ad for more, and still don't have enough to play. Not a big puzzle as titled, just a lot of teensy ones. Update: I was only able to use coins to open puzzles once. Now I'm on the third day of collection, with at least two more to go before I can do a puzzle.
  • Oct 1, 2020

    By Greg Agiannidis
    Infuriating cashgrab when near the end. I never buy "consumables" in games (coins, lives, tokens etc), I hate it. Here I bought just the No Ads and Coin Doubler specials, to make my life a bit easier, coz I was really enjoying the game. I didnt care I was low on tokens coz I could unlock puzzles with coins and get tokens as a reward. Suddenly though this option disappeared. I havent seen it for two weeks in a row. I wont buy any tokens and now I can play only one puzzle a day. Dishonest as hell.

    Way too many ads, I get that free games need them to make money but it'll be whenever I input a word, complete a puzzle, unlock a new puzzle, open up the game, literally every opportunity. A lot of them also take me straight to the app store when the ad finishes, rven if I didnt click on anything.
  • Jun 28, 2020

    By Ally Cat
    The game itself is good, I'd like to play it more, but the token system is very limiting and the ads make it impossible to play whilst listening to anything on my mobile like audible books or music. I wish there was an option to pay for a no ad version with more tokens.
  • Keep working on the fine tuning, developers Dec 30, 2018

    By ace2u2009
    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.

    I love it, endless crosswords. my only complaint is there have been times I put in the right answer and it will say I'm wrong. Fortunately, that rarely happens which is why it stands out to me. other than that it's my favorite and only game! I do suggest it to other crossword heads I know😊

    previously I enjoyed this app to my best and completed 69 grids. lately completed sucessfully a grid I was only allowed yo complete the same grid instead of jumping to next one. It means I technically struck. Therefore I restart my device but no then I uninstalled this app and installed a new from Google app. It was sucessfully installed on my device. when I tap to open it didn't work. To fix this, I contacted both Google play support and developers of this app but no result so far.
  • Finally, a crossword puzzle I like! Nov 6, 2017

    By Sweet Bre
    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.
  • Love this game Jul 25, 2017

    By Zacker001
    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 may require willpower Jul 15, 2017

    By Soccabeya
    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! May 4, 2018

    By Crickette USA
    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.

    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! My hubby keeps getting better! I've gotten addicted to it & so has my 7 year old son playing 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 Jul 23, 2017

    By JonahPro
    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.
  • This one I like, I’m back again. Jul 30, 2021

    By cutekittypunk
    I played this one about 2 years ago. Then after solving almost all the puzzles got burned out and deleted the app. Well, I started doing them again so I tried several other apps but didn’t like the way they automatically gave clues. I like that this app asks if I want each letter revealed and I can say No. Of course they give clues in the letters that could be used box and that’s enough for me.
  • It's lots of fun....but Aug 8, 2017

    By Hip Didler
    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!

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! May 18, 2018

    By Seth Draven
    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.
  • Addictive! But limited Aug 29, 2017

    By Muse1975
    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, but limited! Jul 22, 2017

    By catone3
    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
  • Yes and no Feb 10, 2018

    By cswrawr
    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.

    This game is really fun, but u end up playing maybe two rounds a day if ur lucky. Lame! I do not see all those puzzles that change daily, like the main review and description says. All I see is the daily question to earn coins and links to download the dev’s other games. I’m at the point where all puzzles are 20+ points each, not coins, so I have to log in every day, but I can’t play a single round every day. Some rounds are 50 each and u have to earn anything past ten. I’ll watch vids, but for 2 points at a time? The game is really fun, but the waiting stinks really bad

    Too much, do this, do that, do it now, our game, do it now. Uninstalled, I was quite happy playing game at my own pace. I hate games that try to hurry me, that's why I'm gone. If any other of this developers games start to do the same, I will uninstall them also.
  • Alright but annoying progress pop ups Jan 27, 2018

    By Duskwitch6
    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 but... Aug 30, 2017

    By monie1952
    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.

    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
  • Fun but requires a ton of patience Jul 12, 2017

    By atristacrat
    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.

    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.
  • Fun, if the Ads Stop Dec 14, 2017

    By ptruby16
    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.

    i downloaded your game and played everyday . i saved up to over 1200 coins , when all of a sudden over a 1000 coins just disappeared from my game. Don't like that in any games , and did not like that in Y'alls. Felt like your game cheated me . i hope if i download any more of your apps they won't cheat me too.

    Way too many adverts. I mean I know you guys have to make money but an advert after EVERY Crossword. Come on...it borders on greed. I'd accept an advert after every few crosswords but I'm close to uninstalling this because an advert after EVERY one is not worth it.

    I have been using this for a while and completed quite a few games( biggest,tallest, sayings, daily diamond 75%, cryptic clues) . I had to rest my phone. When I reinstalled the app -all my data had gone and I am really disappointed. Uninstalled the app as I donot want to start afresh.

    I have enjoyed this for ages, but now when I try to buy tokens it says Error: You already have this, and won't let me buy.

    The game is good and I enjoy the different modes of word puzzles included. But the interstitial adverts are just *way* too much. I played through the entire World's Largest Picross and never had this many adds play. And they're not just when you complete a level or unlock, you get forced ads play when you return to the main menu to chose a different game mode. Good game. Ruined by too many ads

    Would have gave it 5 stars if the progress could be carried over to other Android devices. I've lost all mine now :( it shouldn't be hard to implement cloud based/Google play based saving in this day and age! I tried copying the core files but it didn't work yet it did with WBPC?! I guess titanium backup could have done it but I don't want to root my new phone.

    The game itself is good, I'd like to play it more, but the token system is very limiting and the ads make it impossible to play whilst listening to anything on my mobile like audible books or music. I wish there was an option to pay for a no ad version with more tokens.
  • Keep working on the fine tuning, developers Dec 30, 2018

    By ace2u2009
    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.

    I really enjoyed playing this game but it seems that it has now fell into the same pit that every mobile game does and is infested with ads. What makes it even worse is you can't skip them either. Guess I'll start looking elsewhere.
  • Okay... Jan 5, 2018

    By Cat1131
    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.

    Fun game but what's the point of playing after 10 token games are over. Have to wait just to watch ads for a couple extra tokens? Make it so you can hold more than 10 without them......legit I have to wait a few days to play if I'm not lucky enough to open a token crate. Fix that and it's a 4-5* game
  • Changes letters Jun 29, 2020

    By dulinjenn
    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!!!
  • Jun 25, 2021

    By Andy Rooney
    What an absolute wind up. To get more tokens you can play a different game & when you get to a certain level on the other game tou then recieve tokens. A few day's ago i got to the level on a mafia game (i actually got past the leve) but never recieved the tokens promised, it was 5,400 something. So they recieved a commision by promising palyers rewards for having a go at a different game then don't pay out. That's a disgusting way to treat the player's of your games & i do want my reward!!!

    I've played this for a long time, but now it's getting really annoying. I used to be able to play every day, but now it takes DAYS to earn enough tokens (as many as 50) to play a puzzle that might only have a dozen words. I tried watching an ad for more, and still don't have enough to play. Not a big puzzle as titled, just a lot of teensy ones. Update: I was only able to use coins to open puzzles once. Now I'm on the third day of collection, with at least two more to go before I can do a puzzle.

    Infuriating cashgrab when near the end. I never buy "consumables" in games (coins, lives, tokens etc), I hate it. Here I bought just the No Ads and Coin Doubler specials, to make my life a bit easier, coz I was really enjoying the game. I didnt care I was low on tokens coz I could unlock puzzles with coins and get tokens as a reward. Suddenly though this option disappeared. I havent seen it for two weeks in a row. I wont buy any tokens and now I can play only one puzzle a day. Dishonest as hell.

    Way too many ads, I get that free games need them to make money but it'll be whenever I input a word, complete a puzzle, unlock a new puzzle, open up the game, literally every opportunity. A lot of them also take me straight to the app store when the ad finishes, rven if I didnt click on anything.
  • Ends up Pay to play Oct 4, 2017

    By Elevert
    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.
  • Was great but each version is getting worse Feb 7, 2019

    By mokumax
    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.
  • This app has gotten worse Jul 4, 2020

    By Francisco 0109
    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
