  • Fun but way too many ads Feb 18, 2021

    By Enterial
    It’s a pretty fun game to sit and play through. And whenever you feel like things just don’t make sense, you have different hints you can use from the coins you made in previous levels. The problem is after every single level, you get an ad. When most of these levels take less than 30 seconds to solve, it’s extremely irritating. It’s a point where I’m spending more time watching the ads than playing the actual game itself. Now I know ads are way for the app to make money, but good apps would balance the ads out properly. Some don’t have any random ads and just let rewards from watching ads take over. But the ads in this app are a complete imbalance. I’m watching 30 second ads every time I finish a level that usually takes me 10-30 seconds to finish. And the levels that would take me longer is where I’d use a hint because if it’s taking me longer than 30 seconds to understand what little there is to understand, then it’s hard to believe I’d actually find it anytime soon. And I doubt any of us are going to spend several minutes on one level just to conserve coins that are there to make the levels easier. If it were an ad every 3 levels, I think it’d be fine. But it being every single level, it really feels like I downloaded an app to watch ads and every once in a while I’m interrupted to play a puzzle game.

  • I love it so much!!! Coins? Jan 31, 2021

    By booooooooiiiiiiiiiiiii
    Ok, I love this game so much and the puzzles are so fun. They are challenging and some are not as difficult but not to easy. This is such a good app!!!!! Thank you so much guys for making this app and I love is so much!!!! But I have no idea what the coins are for? What are they for??? You could make an update with the coins where you can buy hints with coins. You can buy 5 hints with 20 coins for 15 hints with 35 coins. But still this game is sooooo fun and enjoyable and so amazing at the same time. Thank you so much for this game again. I love it sooooooo much!!!!!!!!!

  • Fun game, could use some improvements Jan 11, 2021

    By AyeAyeAmanda
    This game is fun, and the word games are very entertaining. My boyfriend and I race to see how fast the other can get the puzzles. My issues with the game lie with three main problems: there are far too many ads. I understand in order for the game to be free, ads are necessary. However, an ad after every single puzzle or every two puzzles drives me up the wall. My other problem is the puzzles start repeating themselves. My third problem; I cannot for the life of me figure out how or what to use the coins on! You collect these coins one after another, you’re enticed to watch a 30 second ad to get even more coins. But you never use them on anything! This game needs some development and improvement, in my opinion.

  • Love this...but now freezes Mar 28, 2021

    By DebiAsh
    I love this game I have love these types of puzzles since I was a young girl. Unfortunately, the past couple days after an answer question and I push the button to get 30 extra coins, or 50 extra coins, it freezes and I have to close down the app go back in it still doesn’t work. So I tried and turned off my phone all the way down through the shut down rated brought it back up opened up the app and the same issue. Please get this fixed as I would love to give you a five star rating so it worked for two days with no lagging and now I’m out of levels. When will you be creating more levels?

  • Really fun game! Apr 14, 2021

    By Katiebear19
    I just started playing this recently - love it! At first the ads drove me crazy but I bought the ad free so now it’s much more fun. Only problem is, I’ve already played through all the regular puzzles - hurry and think up more guys! In the meantime I am trying the insane puzzles...they are harder but you get plenty of opportunity to accumulate coins, arrows and rockets to keep you going. Great new game!

    Good concept. what's really annoying is the banner overlay telling me to change MY settings allowing MY personal data to be used to help make ads more relevant and help support you as you get paid from the ads. It's MY choice to not do so, so don't force your reminder banner on me ruining game play I read the t&c at the beginning & surely that should suffice as a result played about 4 levels and got fed up and unistalled. Don't give the choice if you're going to try and force your will anyway.

    Too many ads. The game itself is fun, if not very challenging. Although there is a good chance it becomes challenging later. By level 14 I had to watch an ad after every level. I'm not against ads, but that was a bit much fairly early on in the game. Perhaps if they had been slightly farther spaced. At any rate, I'm uninstalling. If you don't mind ads after every level or are willing to spend $3, it might be worth it. It didn't seem worth that to me, if it had, I would have paid for no ads.

  • Really fun for a Challenge, but WAY to many ads Feb 6, 2021

    By Tucktheduck12
    So if you have done these puzzles before you probably know them and love them like I do. But when I was playing this game two things really ruined it for me. 1. There is no space bar. And you don’t need to press one but the worst part is there is an ad where it is supposed to be. So whenever you accidentally try to punch the space bar you get redirected to the AppStore. Pretty cheap way to advertise if you ask me 2.after every game (sometimes 2) I had an ad. So by game level 14 I had already watched 10 ads. And if you love the game enough to watch ad after ad after ad them it’s shouldn’t bother you but it’s kind of a pain when I just want to play and I have to watch an excessive amount of ads And don’t get me wrong I get that these games have to advertise to make money but they also have to give people a good balance of ads to game play time. And the balance in this game is way off.

    Great brain teasing game but so many ads pop up between games. So I went ahead and paid for the game to be ad-free and now after 500 puzzles, I have to wait for more puzzles to be added??? I definitely don't feel that it was worth the purchase.

  • Love it Feb 17, 2021

    By TonksandLupin
    I love these types of puzzles and the app is great for this. The ads aren’t annoying to the point of uninstalling which makes it playable. The only suggestion is being able to tap a previous letter to change it. For example, if I type “welcime” by accident, I’d like to tap the “i” to quickly change it to an “o”. That’s literally the only thing I can think of. Thank you developers!

  • If you think there are problems, read on. Feb 22, 2021

    By OnMyNerves😑
    Every time you go through at least 3 rounds there’s an ad. The ad let’s you skip every single time. I have no problem with that. It is a very great game. Just I think there’s a bug in the game, every time I log on the Home Screen is stuck on the side of my screen so it’s hard to type. That’s all for today.

  • This game should be a Game Show on tv Mar 12, 2021

    By 420 that_dude
    This game is so much fun. I can not get enough, I love how it keeps my mind sharp. This game makes you think and this game would be fun to watch 2 or 3 people trying to figure the phrase out first n the quickest. Also having to buy letters n give people a time limit. I would watch that game show.... 🤔ever heard the term “ here’s your sign”

  • Great Game! I can’t put it down! Feb 17, 2021

    By Princess DaniBear
    I have wanted a game like this one for a long time! The only reason I only gave 4 stars is because there is no system to spend the coins (I see this was fixed in the latest update) and the excessive ads. Why even have a “no thanks” option if you’re going to force me to watch an ad anyway? That’s the biggest struggle for me. I’ve deleted other games for that garbage behavior and I really don’t want to have to delete this one! Please fix it!

  • Really fun :) Feb 19, 2021

    By cera anne
    The first few “levels” or puzzles were easy and went by pretty fast, being as there were no ads. I thought I was in the clear of an ad riddled game until about the fourth or fifth one and after every single question there was an ad. I’ve come to notice you can skip of not all, most of them; but it’s still kind of annoying. Other than that, this game is incredibly fun. Really good use of phrase base games.

    By Georgia MacGillivray
    This game is great and fun, except for ads. There is an ad after, literally EVERY SINGLE level. It's fun, but rarely challenging. There are a few hard levels, but not many. You spend more time watching ads than playing. I know that there need to be ads, and there is a no ads pay option, but at least put an ad after every 3 or 4 levels? Its gets boring over time just watching ads. I downloaded the game to play it, not watch ads.

  • I can’t play Mar 9, 2021

    By punkin pie punky
    The game is glitching,😭 there is a white block off to the side and can’t play the game. I would think it would be a ad but the ad is glitching too. I wanted a game like this but is glitching too much of ads. I love the game but can’t go to the next level if the ad won’t go away and there is no x or anything that leads the ad away. And the ‘’ What’s new’’ it said bug fixes soooo I’m hoping that will get fixed. Please fix it!!!!!!!!!!!!❤️❤️

  • Fun game. Too many ads Jan 23, 2021

    By Paddy Whack70
    This game is a great challenge and it’s fun to play. The only problem is there are too many ads. If you need a clue(one letter) you have to watch an ad. Need another clue? Watch another ad. Want to earn more points? Watch another ad. Ready to move to the next puzzle? Here, watch this ad. I know the ads help with paying for the game. However, there’s just too many.

    I was expecting "hangman", like the ad for this game showed, but this game is not. It's cute & clever, however, but I can only give it 3 stars because the ads between every game take so very long before you can close them. And it costs money to get rid of ads. Uninstalled.

  • New bug fix Mar 30, 2021

    By OhSoSouthPhillyChick
    The worked great until I updated it 3 days ago to get the new levels now it keeps freezing after each level and it’s not allowing me to collect my coins..and to actually get to each level I have to exit the game close it out then reopen it. So before the update 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️after the Update I give it 3 ⭐️⭐️⭐️and it’s a shame cause I really really enjoy this game, I went through all the levels in like 3 to 4 days now every time I open the game I end up just closing it and finding something else to play cause all the freezing is a hassle.

  • Disappointing and Annoying Apr 3, 2021

    By teal toothbrush
    Imagine you got a flyer to go to a comedian’s performance. It has good reviews and the jokes seem pretty funny so you decide to go. The comedian starts with a few basic puns, and then some more, and then even more and you realize that mediocre puns is all that it is. That’s what this game is. I got this game and I enjoyed the first few levels, they were simple and fun puzzles and a good introduction, then the game went downhill. When I got to the second level set the game started playing unskipable adds in between every level. And the puzzles were still easy, so I would spend 5 seconds on a level and then have to watch a 20 second add just to do another boring and easy level. The game loses its charm quickly and feels more like a chore than a game. It doesn’t get harder or more clever it’s just a tedious game. 2.3/5

    I forgot to mention this in my last comment, but the hints are crazy. For example when guessing a long word, and you have typed the first few letters that you're sure about but you need a hint for the other ones, if you click on the hint, it'll start from the 1st letter again and removes what you've entered

    If you choose not to allow access to your data, there is a large message covering fifth of the screen that covers some of the levels and menu so you can't see nor use the app properly. It is my choice to make my data available or not. Loads of ads make it unplayable too.

  • Developers are greedy Feb 7, 2021

    By MJ Blackston
    The game would be really fun, even with a normal amount of ads, but there’s an ad between almost Every. Single. Play. It basically tries to annoy you into buying the ad free version and I usually do because I like to support good developers. But when it’s this obnoxious ... like I’d rather shove ice picks under my toenails than to try and play the game because of all the ads, it’s just not worth it. It takes me an average of 3 seconds to figure out the puzzle and maybe 5 seconds to type it out. So for every eight seconds of game play, I’m forced to sit through 30 seconds of annoying ads. Again, I would have totally purchased the ad free version, but now I’ll remove the entire app on principal.
