  • Crappy update Jul 8, 2020

    By twipotter
    I’ve enjoyed playing this game up until this last update a couple of days ago. With this latest update the ‘first aid bulb’ square soo does not work for me anymore . Previously I was able to tap on the ‘first aid bulb’ and see where I ‘may’ be able to play tiles. With this new update if I tap on that bulb there is one option only..to play/use the ‘first aid bulb’ and I’m extremely unhappy with this update so much so that I’m tempted to not play but alas I don’t have another fall back game as yet This is from someone who NEVER writes reviews 😏

    Some of the boards don't fully load. So you see 3 or 4 rows and the rest of the board is black screen. I lost a free pass & 150 coins trying to play the sand screen. The game in and of itself is OK. It was just starting to get a little challenging. This was not the first time boards hadn't loaded properly but it was the first time it cost me a game because I didn't know where the green square was to start

    Best word game I've played in ages. Very varied puzzles, clear instructions on how to complete each level. The only negative, aside the ads, is the lack of vowels distributed. Sometimes you have no option but to end the game. A brutal final word to the whiners that complain they cannot play due to lack of coins. This game is obviously too hard for you. I have just under 20,000 coins and have never spent a single penny on the game. All you gotta do is keep winning. Simples.

    So this is a basic scrabble game and it’s enjoyable BUT there are no explanation for these power ups or “extras”. For instance, I have a TON of gems but there is no explanation what I can use them for. So I keep accumulating and have no use for them. I’ve tried googling, searched every last screen in the game, no explanation at all. Plus when you’re playing the computer mode, some of the words it uses are ridiculous and it’s like you’re playing a scrabble dictionary because 90% of what they play you’ve never even heard of in your life. Also, Facebook group is useless unless you want live videos of people doing tarot card readings Plus my screen doesn’t look like others - they have lives and I have gems and need coins to play. This doesn’t make sense!!

    The game is generally very good and I enjoy playing it, but I keep losing out on getting extra coins because the ad for Tri Peaks Solitaire never works. If you click the option to get an extra move or more coins by watching an ad and get that one, you're outta luck. Please remove that ad. Stars will go up after that.

  • Ruined a great game with greed Jul 2, 2020

    By BRLADiva
    I have serious issues with several of the game boards. There is at least one board that seemingly cannot be surpassed. All pathways to the black and white square are blocked and it is not evident what is required to get around the roadblocks or break the bricks blocking access. I also have a big problem with the number of coins required to buy a letter, an extra move, clues, and losing turns to swap hands. Also, using up your boosters but not knowing in advance if the boosters will help. Finally, most of the boards cannot be played in the few moves allotted. I have spent entirely too much real money on this game only to feel like I have been scammed during play. I enjoyed the game for a while but I would be crazy to continue throwing money away on a game that is not very fair. The game developers did “compensated me by giving me 1000 coins. If you have ever played this game, you know 1000 coins is meaningless. Let that sink in...1000 coins is meaningless. I have wasted thousands of coins (and the real money to acquire them) on this. I’m sorry to say, but I’m done. It’s a pretty cool game and can be addictive. Hopefully someone will take this under advisement and make some changes.

    Good game concept BUT frequent ads crash you mid-game. "Coin" cost is high per game and you don't get it them back, so pay again to restart ... And, salt in the wound, when you restart the game the first screen you see asks if you want to pay (cash this time) to remove ads! Bit of a swizz I suspect. Becoming very annoying, I probably won't stay long ...

  • Anti- Semitic, derogatory terms Sep 9, 2020

    By Rose467433
    While initially the game fun I was very surprised when was trying random letters at one point, not realizing exactly what I was entering, until it accepted the word “kike”. When I clicked on it for its definition it said “a Jew”. When I wrote them about it and asked how their “acceptable” words were selected they refused to answer. When I again inquired and reminded them that no derogatory terms are acceptable they simply commented that they would take out all bad words. Who knows what they actually consider bad if this was allowed. No remorse for their “oversight” or actions. Basically a short handed auto response. Unacceptable! They are disgusting and prejudiced! UPDATE: Despite repeated attempts to find the resource of their word selection they refuse to acknowledge and just give the automated response that they will be removed. Again, no accepting responsibility or reassurance of steps taken to resolve this situation. DO NOT PLAY and tolerate their horrible behavior!

    While the game is fun to play, it is frustrating that it cheats. 8 turns and all consonants, swapping letters 2 times & still all consonants. Making 8 two letter words in a row because of the cheating.... makes the game not fun. It seems that if you stop playing for some time it cheats less for a few games. The game freezes and you are unable to make any choices. It's frustrating to not be able to claim your coins because the game is messed up.

  • TOO MANY ADS Jun 16, 2020

    By Dustygrl123
    I’m considering deleting this game because there are way too many ads in It. It seems the longer you play, the more ads come on. Now it’s every time I complete a puzzle and some of them are really long. I really don’t feel like waiting for a full ad to complete just to move on to the next puzzle It really ruins the continuity & the desire to continue playing and I think $9.99 is too much to pay to remove them. Just my opinion, but it bothers me enough that this is the first review I’ve EVER written for a game app. Does anyone agree with this? I haven’t read a lot of reviews yet, but so far I haven’t seen any regarding this. BTW, I do play games with ads in them, just not this many. Update: I just read more updates and my mistake, there are plenty complaining about the ads. They continue to say they will address this, but so far nothing.

    I like this game alot, its one of the best & kinda simliar to Scrabble. The only things I don't like is...I've to pay to play each level & I can't collect my rewards unless I've WIFI(which I don't have at home). Hopefully, you'll consider changing those parts. I'd greatly appreciate that very much. Thanks!

  • Fun game Jul 11, 2020

    By DebGross59
    I am giving it 5 stars because the game itself is fun and worth it. I am deleting it though because I paid for no ads but still have to watch a ton of them. Don’t bother paying for no ads on this app because at the most, it may take away one or two ads. They still make sure that you truly have to watch a ton of ads to make the game worth it. So I’m out!

  • Love the game! May 20, 2020

    By Greenman1066
    Great game... I’m obsessed with it! Hours of fun and using your brain. Only problem is I’ve bought couns and the ad free item never received them. Apple blames the game .. yet I find that hard to believe as the game never received my order or the money but Apple took it out. Oh well it wasn’t huge amounts but I would like to be able to purchase coins from Time to time.

  • I am addicted Sep 17, 2020

    By D0lphgirl
    I usually don’t write reviews because to be honest I never read them, but I have been reading them lately and they have helped me make better decisions. I downloaded this game about 2 months ago and I can’t stop playing it, they support team is great, and I have increased my vocabulary because every word has its meaning.

    I'm glad I give this game a chance. Only 4 star from me because I HATE MISLEADING ADS with a passion, but the game is actually FUN. I don't get why so many people said that they have to buy coins to play. I downloaded this a few days ago and already have tens of thousands of coins. As long as you keep finishing the levels in first try and watch the videos it's all good. I played this while doing some other works (like drawing or crocheting) to bear with those SUPER-BORING 30 sec repetitive ads.

    JUST GIVE ME VOWELS SO I CAN MAKE A WORD. Plus, there's ad watching bug. Every time I tap to watch an ad, when it is '8 Ball Pool', it jumped, cannot load the ad. As a result, I lost reward that I should have. ..….................. Now the support team responded my issue. Thanks you for their kind attention.

    By ymr1960
    I usually get rid of word games pretty quick, but I love the challenge of this game. The fact I am not playing against another person is a bonus. The challenges in this game can be tough but I have managed all. The things I don’t like, when you know you can’t win there should be a button that say quit. Like today : the absolute only play available was one space above a V. I had 7 plays but couldn’t play. Also I spent the $ to get the extras in that room. I think the amount isn’t worth it and won’t do it again I like playing the game and think the pros overweight the cons

  • Partially Played Games Aren’t Saved Aug 21, 2020

    By shuto scrabble
    I love the challenges, but if I have to leave a game for any reason, and the program shuts down from time lapsed, I will lose all the time, strategy and precious coins I've invested. This has spoiled some of the fun more than once.

  • Fun but extremely frustrating Jul 27, 2020

    By EMD6/6/20
    This game is fun and challenging but as you get to the higher levels it becomes extremely frustrating. You will have 6 moves to accomplish the goals and receive no vowels. It is impossible to build words without vowels. You can lose a move to change out letters but still get no vowels. To buy an extra letter costs a lot of coins and you don’t earn very many throughout game play. You earn enough to play the next level sometimes. It is set up so you have to spend real money to complete the levels. I have played many levels where I only received two vowels the entire game. I refuse to spend a ton of money to play any game.

  • Fun but costly Jul 6, 2020

    By aikbee
    I love the game and making my brain work to figure out words and strategy but I have put money in for the no ads, which worked for a while but now the ads are back-not the ads I chose to earn extra coins or rewards but the ads between games. I’ve lost so many coins and boosters because I’ll be playing the game and have to pause for phone call or so other distraction and when I go back it starts me all over and I have to use coins again to play a level I was already working on-I still play but I have gone back to some of my other favorites bc I’ve spent enough money, of my choice, but have lost what I’ve purchased due to bugs in the game-

    If it was not for the constant huuuge and billionaire casino ads which are thrown in during a game not just at the end, then I would of given at least 4 stars but the ability to relax whilst playing seems to only be available if you pay to remove the ads. It is not the cost, it is the way that they throw so many ads at you in the attempt to break you down into buying.

    How do you make progress £££££ It costs 200 coins to play a round and if you win with the best score you win 155 coins therefore each round you are losing 45 coins until you have none and then have to buy them. This game is a waste of time and a con out of money. The game is also useless in that it doesn't remain open in the background so if you are half way through a game and have to answer a text, you go back in it reloads and you have lost the coins you paid for the game you didn't finish

    I watched an ad for this while playing another game and thought I'd give it a go. Once again an ad that is nothing like the game. If the makers don't have enough confidence in their game to advertise it properly it doesn't say much for it. You will only enjoy this game if you are 5 or under.
