    This game is just what the Dr ordered..... Literally. I have Cognitive setback with my Multiple sclerosis and this game does my daily exercise for me with the help of family and friends. First all let me point out something. For the first week I watched the ads for the free game boards.... that got old really quick! For $15 bucks I purchased 900 game Board and no adds for a year..... No brainer. Check it out!

    I love this game. There are very few ads that aren't intrusive. HOWEVER I have to mark it down as it is so SLOW. When playing the computer I end up with the "start" screen not responding and having to force close the app and restart to take my turn, this doesn't always rectify the situation and I have to wait a while. If this was tightened up a little it would easily be a 5* game!

    Pretty fun, although I do have a couple of complaints. Some of the puzzles use offensive words (gypsy, eskimo, retard), and having to watch an ad to play every single time is tedious, especially when there are ads in between turns as well. Love the way the game itself works, but these little things take away from the enjoyment of the game.

  • Fun!....until you run out of boards Dec 16, 2019

    By Nazcarchick
    Addictive, fun and challenging game! I can’t play anymore unless I pay. Sure you can invite friends and earn more play BUT I did that, multiple friends joined but we were never rewarded the free play. Or you can watch a video for ONE free play but the video I watched was 5 MINUTES!!! I should of gotten 10 free boards for that amount of time! My suggestions would be to 1- follow through with your reward system ....2 - make the videos shorter to earn free play or keep the longer videos for more free plays ..... 3- when playing against the Kryss bots to learn how to play or to practice don’t deduct that from my games......4- allow users to earn free boards daily to keep them playing!! So many users WANT to continue to play this great game but you are just forcing them to remove the app if they can’t pay for more, myself included. I have emailed the developer and left this review in hopes that they follow through with what they offer. If they do, I will come back and increase my rating.

  • If it weren’t for the obnoxious never ending ads Jun 20, 2020

    By daisymydaisy
    I would seriously love this app if it weren’t for the over abundance of obnoxious ads!! Nothing worse than being force fed ad after ad after ad after ad!!! This app is no different than all the rest, you either pay $$$ or be ready to invest an enormous amount of time to get through just 1 game because of the never ending ads. Developer: I know this is money for you, but think about it-every flippin app out there is doing just like you are with the ads. Look at the time you take from ppl that they can’t get back. I’ve actually paid for the privilege to play your app, but I’m going to forfeit the remainder the games I paid for, and delete your app BECAUSE YOU HAVE WAY WAY WAY TOO MANY ADS. iTunes-you are greedy and ppl are getting sick of it. There needs to be some kind of control over the amount of obnoxious ads you are allowed to cram down the very throats that are padding your fat fat fat wallets! Can you say boycott??

    I really enjoyed the game. But literally one day after I purchased something on your app it froze, and would not start again at All! The strange or more suspicious thing is if I logged in as a guest I could play a new round a game without my purchase. Which is completely misleading. I even attempted to contact the game developer to try to fix it. I received no response. In my opinion thats what made the game 0 stars to me.

    Super addicting game but the prices for game boards is obscene. I'm not paying $10 a month for a game. The ads are excessive, having to watch ads before a game, between turns and to get boards. No thanks. Also, it mentions making sure your notifications are on yet there are no notification options and I don't get notifications from the app. Fun game but the app is a bit of a miss.

  • Great in Theory Jul 11, 2020

    By jordangelo
    This game is great in theory. Fantastic idea, super fun, addicting blah blah. HOWEVER: the amount of ads is ABSURD. And you run out of game boards extremely quickly. So, you have to watch ads to keep playing. Fine. BUT! If you actually WANT to spend money on this game and buy their “premium” version (which includes no ads, and more game boards) there are only really terrible choices. Either you can be confused by their stupidly laid out store like I was (which was updated moments before I made a purchase and thought I was getting rid of ads—mistake) and get a bunch of game boards, and STILL watch garbage ads all the time. OR you can buy a MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION to play a word game. This game is not worth that at ALL, few games are worth a monthly fee. I’m not paying $10/mo for ANY game. Or you can pay $50/yr which is INSANE. These options are greedy of the devs and if you think otherwise you’re naive. I will absolutely be requesting a refund and will be deleting the app. Sick of ads and sick of greedy devs. The game should be a set price if you want a premium option, not monthly.

    Makes you purchase or watch videos to be able to open a game board. But then you have to watch a video everytime before you play a turn. The prices for premium say its a one time purchase to get premium. But you have to purchase it every month and the price is way to high with a limited amount of game boards. Waste of time. This game would be much more fun without the limit on game boards.

  • It was ok at first.... Jul 27, 2020

    By dew121212
    Other than the super annoying ads, it was fun and kind of addicting. I hate having to wait for real online players to play their turn because the game takes forever then so the option to what they called practice or play with a bot was nice. It wasn’t until I went to start a new game that I learned that apparently you get limited amount of boards and once you are out, you have to buy more or watch ads. I was willing to put up with the ads during game play but the fact that you can’t just start a game without watching an ad or paying money is what ultimately made me delete the game. I would have rather payed like $5-7 for the app in the beginning and had unlimited plays and no ads. I would not waste your time unless you are super rich and money isn’t an issue because you will just be disappointed in the end. 0/5 is my actual rating!!!

    This game is awesome! It's basically a 2-player crossword puzzle and I can't get enough of it! My only complaint, and it BARELY even counts as a complaint, is that as far as I can tell there are no notifications whatsoever. It would be awesome if I could get notified when it's my turn instead of leaving my opponent to wait 15 hours for my to play. Not even bothered enough to give less than 5 stars tho, this game is freaking great!

    I really love this game, it's a fun upgrade from wordfued. There are no notifications which is my biggest issue. Makes it easy to go a full day in between plays just because you forget. I also don't love that you have to pay for boards, even when playing AI. I dont mind paying to play people but I may get to the point where I stop buying just on principle.

  • Fun but could be better Jul 13, 2020

    By astermaria
    I really enjoy this game. It’s challenging but not too difficult. It can take awhile when playing against other real players but that is not the games fault. My one complaint is that it charges you a game board to play against the AI so you quickly run out of boards and cannot restock them. You can watch videos to get a board which is cool but you should either earn boards for wins, get free ones daily for playing, or be able to play against the AI without being charged a board. This way you can keep playing while awaiting your challengers.

  • Good game but... Jul 23, 2020

    By Mr. T 
    This game is a fun and unique take on crossword puzzles, the issue is with the scoring towards the end of the game. When there’s less than 10 tiles they should split evenly between the players. Otherwise, in a close game whoever gets the last full 5 tiles has an unearned upper hand. Another note to consider for the final tiles of the game is regardless of how many tiles you actually have if you use them all you should still get the 5 point bonus for clearing your cache.

  • Good but shouldn’t be a sub service Jul 5, 2020

    By Tom Stitzer
    This is a very unique game and I enjoy playing it. However, I really think they should have gone the premium route and charged $5 for the game and that’s that. Unlimited plays, no ads, just tons of fun. Developers want to make money so I understand wanting to have a subscription service, but there are very few, if any, games that I would actually subscribe to. I don’t mind paying a set price for a game at all however. Charge me $5, $10 for the game and just let it be a good quality game I can play as much as I want. When a game has ads, it makes me feel like it is a game of lesser quality. All said, it is a fun game but because of the play limit, I probably won’t be keeping it installed if I end up running out of plays too often. It’s a shame but these guys are falling for the same mistake as so many other developers. Give a premium option for those who want it. Get rid of the sub option.

    The game is pretty well done. Strategy is tough because players don't want to leave the last letter available on long words so games drag on unnecessarily. 3 stars because the pricing is obscene. $9.99 for one month add free and some extra boards?? That's excessive. $50 for a year?? So I guess I'm stuck with ads and limited game boards.

  • Fun, but so ****ing glitchy... Jul 28, 2020

    By chrisfarnsy96
    Took me so many attempts to “sign up” just so I could play against a random opponent. After I signed up it would then again prompt me to sign up AGAIN. And again. And again. And again. Until finally; I’m not sure what came over it, it decided to accept my credentials. Also, when matches are started for some reason it shows two games after starting a match with the same opponent. I didn’t start two games with this other play, as well one says it’s my turn and the other is the opposing player. Yet, of course initially I sent the request so it is her the other players first. Not really a logistical error and hadn’t interrupted the game play, just an eye sore and can get confusing when I play multiple matches at once.

    Pay to pay. You get a finite number of boards and practice with the AI counts towards that. So unless you want to shell out money, you can only play a finite number of boards. Every other game I've played gives you up to five lives a day with free spins or some other incentive to keep you playing. I will be uninstalling once I run out of boards.

    The puzzles are fun, but everytime I finished a turn and go back to get to the next game it freezes, then I have to force stop the app and open it again just to play my next turn. I would also like it more if it was game you didn't play with friends, because nobody else I know wants to play it. Plus idk if I would recommend it if they have to close the app everytime they finish a turn.

    Tried to get into it, but couldn't. The drag interface is too close to the OS gesture controls, so you are constantly opening Google assistant or multitask. When you do, the letter you chose then freezes and you can't use it. THEN during practice, there are ads after EVERY MOVE. A potentially good game ruined by bad design and over saturation of ads.

  • Game Constantly Crashes Jul 24, 2020

    By Court_214
    I really enjoy this game and wish I could play it more. The problem is that the game crashes multiple times a day. The whole app freezes so you can’t open your game boards. Sometimes it also says there is an issue with the internet connection, even if all my other apps are connecting without issues. The problem can only be resolved by uninstalling and reinstalling the app but even that has not proven to work every time. I’ve had to do this a few times a day since I downloaded it earlier this week and it has become very frustrating. I don’t recommend downloading this game until the technical issues are addressed. I’ll adjust my review if this is fixed because the game itself is very enjoyable.
