    CROSSWORD JAM FRAUD!!! Apr 29, 2021

    By Britton aka Blitzy Cain
    I loved this game ~ out of curiosity I wanted to see if I could watch 30 videos to have over 1000 points when needed for getting a letter when ~ that worked but after only 2 games using 1 point in each game I was down to 22 points. Farewell fun game!!!

    Need more countries to visit. I've played them all. I usually get tired of a game, but not this one. My only complaint is that you need to increase the coins you win. It is disheartening to play 40 games and only win 20 coins. It's take more than that for one hint. Also need to increase the amount earned for watching ads. If you need 30 coins you can only earn 20 until you have to wait the timeout for the next video.

    This game called," Crossword Jam" is very fun and easy to operate. Its relaxing and it opens your mind as well as your vocabulary. I can also play this game offline. I'm so glad I made this choice. I've enjoyed playing Crossword Jam. I played once or twice in the past. It's still a very cool and relaxing. On top of all I have mentioned about this App I agree it's truly educational also. ENJOY!!I AM!!

    At the start of each stage it shows a building associated with a country. When it shows your points after each crossword it displays the flag of that country. It also shows a mini dictionary which you can click on to find out the meaning of the words in the crossword you've just finished. A very interesting thing, you can view anytime, is a scrapbook which shows pictures and fascinating facts about the natural world, which you get each day by doing the daily crossword.
  • Very fun, despite a few minor issues Nov 27, 2019

    By piccolino pigeon
    I’m on the penultimate level of this game (which is Tonga, as of 26 Nov 2019), and have overall had a great time playing it. My quips are: 1) certain words that are very clearly existing words are not counted; this occurs both with singular or plural forms of certain words that are counted in their other form (“layouts” is counted while “layout” is not, even though the app’s dictionary’s first entry for “layouts” is “plural form of layout,” e.g.) as well as with a plethora of random words (“lust” won’t be counted even though “lusty” is, e.g.); and 2) the Daily Challenge is occasionally designed in such a way where you literally have to just guess which word is going to fill a certain space when multiple words could potentially fit and be correct in the “crossword” schema. For instance, say both “act” and “ace” would fill the space in the puzzle equally appropriately; you have to guess one or the other, and guessing incorrectly forces you to lose points toward the daily challenge that you’d otherwise have been guaranteed (as not all Daily Challenge puzzles include these frustrating elements—some, that is, are able to be solved in a more precise and accurate way instead of having to guess randomly).

    If you like words, this is extremely addictive and quiet a fun game. The only real drawbacks are that it drains the battery, even connected to my charger. It may also be sucking data loading the ads, though I haven't checked. Also, as Ive gotten to the higher levels, the same words are showing up too often, which is annoying.

    Endless fun... I love this, with two exceptions; I too am very frustrated by losing points and at the very beginning of the game there are bonuses for checking in each day. Well, I’ve been playing this game for years and have yet to get to the top prize. I’ve gotten knocked down to the bottom of the rewards list or just stuck at the end behind the final check in...it’s extremely frustrating. Second issue, there are many times I’ve played a word that you refused only to find out at the very end (when I’ve had to lose points to get a letter) that the word you refused to score was indeed the correct one. I find this very annoying. I also have found words that you won’t accept but really are words. Please fix these things. The frequency of the ads too are horrendous but if you fix these other things I can live with them.

    I really like the backgrounds, it not being frustrating to play, and the fun little things on the side that you can do. But. It might just be for me, but the game has no sound, music, or voice overs. It would definitely make it 5 stars for me if you could fix this for me please
  • Best Game For Many Reasons! Jul 3, 2021

    By RunJJRun
    This game is the best. Other games get increasingly harder to solve to the point you just don’t want to play anymore. This game, however, isn’t the same. It offers the right amount of challenge and you don’t have to know every word in the dictionary, this game uses words that everyone knows. I’ve been playing this game for a few years and I never get tired of it. I did break down for the first time and purchased the no ads version because ads are annoying when you are playing a game you enjoy. They offer special challenges where you can compete with other players, if that’s your thing. Just a great game that is fun and not stressful.
  • Black Screen Jul 16, 2021

    By ptlpltptlplt
    This is a really fun game. I enjoy the tournaments except for one thing. The past few days I have been getting a black screen when I’ve tried to play the game. I’ve turned my phone on and off to restart it but I’m still getting a black screen. Everything else on my phone is working fine. I’m almost wondering if it’s intentional. I’ve won 3 tournaments in a row without needing to make in app purchases. If this is a way to give preference to players making in app purchases over players that watch ads, it would only be fair to mention this upfront. If it’s a technical glitch, it’s been going on for several hours now. You may need a more knowledgeable IT employee so there is less down time. It’s the only game I’ve played that something like this has happened. I would have given the game a solid 5 star review if it weren’t for this issue. The game itself is a lot of fun.

    I love playing Crossword Jam! I find it quite addicting. I thoroughly enjoy making words out of the letters. I would like it better if it was a little more difficult. Some of the smaller words are used repeatedly. Otherwise it is a Fun game and is keeping my brain sharp!.

  • There's better apps out there with the same concept Mar 26, 2021

    By jenbjenbjenbjenb
    The game is fun at first, but has a lot of faults. You have to pay to access the coins that you earn in game, they're held in a "piggy bank" but aren't stored there until you've played for a while, so you can access them at first but can't later (you need coins for hints, which you'll need after a while, trust me). The app doesn't recognize all words in the dictionary as actual words, so it limits the bonus words you can accumulate (which help you earn coins that you CAN access). The amount of ads is actually ridiculous, I don't think I've ever downloaded a game before with the amount that this one has in it. There's an ad after every game, even if it's only 3 words that need to be found, and every time you open the app. I started only playing this game when I wasn't connected to wifi and turned off my data so I didn't have to deal with them. There's also daily challenges where they want you to watch EVEN MORE ads. The app will host tournaments where you can earn a lot of coins if you win, but once you approach higher levels the amount of coin prizes drops. When I first started the tournaments there were awards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, but the most recent tournament I entered only had a prize for first place, so unless you play the game 24/7 you won't win. The theme is cute and if you like these kind of words games then you'll have fun, but all of the issues I stated above are why I'll be deleting the game.

    Downloaded this game only hours ago. Initially, game played smoothly for the first few rounds. I was really enjoying the game. That was until, suddenly, it began to freeze and seriously lag. Experienced frequent lagging as I attempted to swiped for words. Then having to wait for the word to actually appear. Very frustrating. What can be done to correct these issues of freezing and lagging? I would have given 5 stars otherwise.
  • Not as good as I thought. Apr 26, 2019

    By LantyArizona
    While the game starts being so exciting and new, one eventually runs out of good words. Some words like 'isle' and other repetitious words can always get you out of a jam. However, eventually the game becomes predictable. Sometimes one spell words knowing they are indeed correct and should be able to obtain mega bonus points, the game does not recognizes them and you don't get the bonus for the effort. Sometimes I connect the letters and form the correct word however it does not catch. It seems the game wants me to use all my bonus points but the object is to leave me without bonus points for when I really are in a jam. When this occurs, it really becomes frustrating because the cue to the initial word in question, is the same word I just connected. And I was right. Not good. It seems that if you want to improve people's brains, redesign the game to include a comprehensive on command dictionary. For those words that are unfamiliar to you. So, this game helps you to parrot and repeat usual words. Not so much brain exercising but mimicking and parroting. Not so much de eloping brain. More like a broken record. Copy some traits like Kindle. It has a comprehensive dictionary for those words you want to learn meaning to. Then, you learn to use them properly. It also has a Wikipedia link and Internet link. I do't mean to through shade. Only providing points so the game could be a real brain exercise.

    THIS GAME CHEATS. IT WITHHOLDS POINTS AND FINALLY STARTS EXITING THE GAME REPEATEDLY. WORST GAME EVER. This started out great! It quickly became my very favorite game! In fact, I am currently on Game 2360, country is Montenegro, and the percent of people completing that game is 0.85%. Now...the problem is that for the last few countries the game has cheated me out of Bonus Points. It will either turn to a black screen or just not give the points. It varies. I first thought it was just a one time thing or maybe a few days’ thing. Wrong. I also questioned my internet but that was not an issue either. The withholding of points worsened as I continued completing the games and going on to the next country. It is now to the point that I rarely get any points at all. Today it didn’t give me the consecutive day points. This is a serious problem that needs to be addressed. In the beginning and 3/4 of the way to where I am I would give it a five star rating. Now I wouldn’t even give it one star. The puzzles are difficult enough as I progress. Crossword Jam should not cheat and withhold points. Shame on them. I TAKE AWAY THE ONE STAR I GAVE THIS GAME IN MY PREVIOUS POST. It will NOT let me proceed. It keeps blanking the screen and exiting out of the game—repeatedly. Currently I am on game 2505 and the country is Bolivia. I have tried and tried and it will not let me finish the game. In addition, it WILL NOT GIVE me ANY points even though I earn them.

    One word: SLEAZY I played this crossword game on my iPhone for years for Free. Now I switch to Android & this same game, still loaded with ads for merch & in-app purchases, which I tolerated for 12 years on iPhone, is now a total screw-job, masquerading as another watch-endless-ads vehicle. NOT TRUE. The set-up: You play/earn coins based on your completion times. Gold coins dribble into a 🐷 bank when filled they insist you "claim" from them for US dollars. OR THEY CUT YOU OFF! @#%&-ers!!!
  • Black Screen Jul 16, 2021

    By Mjwill52
    Have been playing this game for months and really enjoyed it. I could even deal with an ad between each game. I was somewhere in the 1250 level (I don’t remember the country) and started getting a black screen, like it was trying to load a video ad and couldn’t get it started. The only way to get out of it was to close the game down and restart it. That is until yesterday… when I close the game and try to restart it, it just opens back to the black screen. I’ve restarted the game several times, made sure the app was completely closed out, shut down & restarted my iPad several times, and even let the app stay open to the black screen for hours hoping that it would close on its on after a time however, nothing happened. I hesitate in deleting and reinstalling it because I would rather not lose the levels achieved. From the recent posts I’ve read, this is not an isolated case and appears to be tied to a recent update. I hope the developers are busy working on the problem and will have an update to fix it very soon and please fix it so we don’t lose our current progress, coins or points. If you can fix the problem I will update the rating.

    Junk. I want the game shown on the ad. This is a ridiculous repetition of the same old swipe for simple words to fit into the puzzle. It's all programmed for words that aren't too complicated. Where is the puzzle shown in the stupid ad?? More nonsense than google play and software team afraid of being original and different from ALL THE REST. UNINSTALLED.
  • I used to like it Jan 29, 2021

    By CJ_proartz
    Recently, nearly every time I complete a game, it wants me to submit my name for, I’m not sure what. There is no way to get out of that screen except to submit my name, or turn off my device and start it up again. Then I play another game or 2 and that comes up again. I just want to play the game. I don’t care about statistics, scores or tournaments. Please just let me play one game after another by allowing me to exit that “submit” screen. Otherwise, I will stop playing & delete the game. There are plenty of similar games. Update: I started playing this on my iPhone instead of my iPad. The above problem went away. But I often get an ad and can’t get out of it. Clicking done or X doesn’t work. Today when I opened the game a screen came up about tournament results. Nothing happened when I hit “see results” & it won’t X out. The only way I can continue is to turn the phone off & on again. Then soon an ad won’t close & I have to turn it off & on again, and again..
  • Please develop additional levels soon! Jun 1, 2021

    By Oklahoma Teacher
    Too bad I can’t give this game a 0. I’m giving up on an update, so I’m deleting it. Too bad, because I used to really enjoy the game. It’s been so long since this game was last updated that I wish I could give it a 0 rating! It’s been weeks, if not months, since I could last play this game. If I could, I would give it 0 stars! This game STILL hasn’t been updated! What gives?! I had originally given this game four stars (see original post below), but am downgrading my rating because it’s taking the developer so long to add additional levels. I’ve paid extra to be able to play more, but so far my money is being wasted. No fair! I enjoy this game very much, but I HATE being hassled repeatedly to “show them some love.” I continue to give this game a four-star rating, but am seriously considering dropping it to three stars because of this hassle.

  • Great crossword game! Love it. READ REVIEW!👍🤩 Apr 8, 2021

    By TRUE FACT BRUH
    This game is worth as much as 5 stars. I love it because it is fun and increases your vocabulary. If your kid struggles with reading and reading hard words like “photosynthesis” this game is perfect for them. Crossword Jam is a great game because it is engages your kids to learn new words. Crossword Jam makes the game fun by making a challenge puzzle for you everyday, and making your kid desperate to get coins and owls (which is what you earn from the challenge puzzle.) When you find a new word in the crossword puzzle and click on it, it tells you the meaning of the word. Get This app! It will help you or your kids a lot! :)
  • Why this game is great and some annoying things about it. Feb 22, 2020

    By Alex Orange and Addi Banana
    This game is great because it is challenging in different ways but nothing that you can’t figure out. This games name is awesome and creative. This game is fun and entertaining when you have nothing to do. You can play this game in the car, bus, etc... You can also play this game on long or short road trips. Even though this game is great, there are some annoying things about it. Like, this game can be really challenging and there are so many adds. We need more coins and we can run out of hints too easily. This is my i like this game and some annoying things about it.🙂
  • Best Word Game Jul 15, 2021

    By Mobie54
    I have been playing word jam for quite sometime. It fills in my free time, as soon as I arrive home in my driveway, I turn off the car and play for 15 min or so. My husband will occasionally look over my shoulder and play with me throughout the day. Now that I am retired I have more time to play. I’m addicted!! Today is the first time I’ve had any trouble. I press on the icon, it begins to open and then gives me a blank screen. I deleted it from my phone and reinstalled, it synced with my iPad which is so awesome. Now my iPad App is doing same thing. Please someone help me- I’m already in withdrawal not being able to play.

  • Crashes!!! Aug 19, 2019

    By GrandmaOTwins
    This app keeps crashing (or whatever) and won’t let me open it. I have to delete and reinstall it. It will then work for a short time then not let me open it again till I delete and reinstall it again. Very frustrating!! I have had to delete and reinstall it several times now. Also it makes me start all over even though I have progressed quite far in the game. Reinstalling AGAIN FOR THE LAST TIME TODAY then I will delete and leave it deleted which is a shame because I do really enjoy the game. I hope this gets fixed before it crashes on me yet again!

    Need more countries to visit. I've played them all. I usually get tired of a game, but not this one. My only complaint is that you need to increase the coins you win. It is disheartening to play 40 games and only win 20 coins. It's take more than that for one hint. Also need to increase the amount earned for watching ads. If you need 30 coins you can only earn 20 until you have to wait the timeout for the next video.

    I really like the backgrounds, it not being frustrating to play, and the fun little things on the side that you can do. But. It might just be for me, but the game has no sound, music, or voice overs. It would definitely make it 5 stars for me if you could fix this for me please

    This game was enjoyable and reasonably challenging but after a while the same words kept coming up over and over. When I had reached quite a high level, the game suddenly froze and I CANNOT continue with it. I did the update but with no success. Everything else is working so it's not my phone. Very disappointing! I will be deleting it.

    This is my second favorite game, but getting coins to help me in a jam is time consuming and I'm not going to pay real $ for them nor am I going to play another game u don't want, spending all my time to get to super high levels for coins in the game I actually want to play!?!?! Plus my coins disappear sometimes and don't add when they should. I will still play, just annoying and frustrating!!!

    Very useful and didactic app. I've learnt a lot of new words since I started playing the quiz only a few days ago. There are, however, too many distractions and there's too much pressure to install apps I really don't find useful.
  • Love but words are repetitious Aug 9, 2019

    By Pep coat
    This game is addictive! I love the crossword style as it helps to figure out the words. What I don’t like: 1) 30 coins for a clue is too many. I don’t do in app purchases so it is very easy to burn through rewards. 2) The 1 hour wait time to cash in the bonus words reward is very annoying as well as the fact that I can’t even keep accruing the bonus words during that period. Do you want us to play the game or not? 3) Please branch out with your letters. The same words get played again and again. 4) And most importantly... THE GAME WON’T OPEN SINCE THE LAST UPDATE. (Weeping) I had no idea it had become my favorite game until I could no longer play it and didn’t want to play anything else! 😳
  • Fun but more expensive to play Sep 30, 2020

    By Capellam44
    I’ve been playing this game for a while. I find it fun and challenging even though there are a few issues. For example words that are clearly in the English language are not counted or found. A plural form might be found, while a singular form is not. You used to be able to earn coins by solving puzzles. You could use the coins to buy hints to get through a really tough puzzle. Now you must buy coins even after solving a puzzle. I think once I run out of coins I will not be playing the game anymore and try to find one that is more user-friendly and knows more words.
  • Black Screen Jul 16, 2021

    By ptlpltptlplt
    This is a really fun game. I enjoy the tournaments except for one thing. The past few days I have been getting a black screen when I’ve tried to play the game. I’ve turned my phone on and off to restart it but I’m still getting a black screen. Everything else on my phone is working fine. I’m almost wondering if it’s intentional. I’ve won 3 tournaments in a row without needing to make in app purchases. If this is a way to give preference to players making in app purchases over players that watch ads, it would only be fair to mention this upfront. If it’s a technical glitch, it’s been going on for several hours now. You may need a more knowledgeable IT employee so there is less down time. It’s the only game I’ve played that something like this has happened. I would have given the game a solid 5 star review if it weren’t for this issue. The game itself is a lot of fun.

    I had fun the first day, playing in the waiting room of my doctor's office (offline). Once I was playing again and with wifi on ... the lousy, repetitive, ADs start popping up every puzzle. Losers! (And, NO, I don't want to pay to turn them off!) And I don't want to pay to get the bonus piggy bank, either. Phhht!
  • Jul 12, 2021

    By Mary Ann Mabaet
    Basic but fun to spend some idle time on. My 1st issue is that I've encountered a bug: After 12 word streak, the achievement won't occur. A bit annoying. A bit tired after the fifth time counting past 12 (including a round of not hidden words). I hope this will get fixed! 2nd issue: forcing players to buy the Piggy Bank "Investment" instead of choosing to acquire coins normally after each game as it was early level. Either should be Player Option.
  • Cheats on points May 4, 2019

    By Mary_A_C
    I love word games and my vocabulary is quite large. Usually I finish quite quickly, but sometimes I get stuck on a word and come back to it later. I am over 2,000 in points and have never left a puzzle Uncompleted. However, this game cheats you out of points all the time. I was twice over 1700 and knocked down to 1500 for no reason. Also the bonus words tell me when I have accumulated 40 points but only 15 or 20 are added to my score. This game would be a lot less frustrating if it did not cheat you. I rarely use a suggested letter which cost points, but still lose points. I think the reason for this is bc they would like me to buy coins which I would never do. If I ever ran out, I would quit. I don’t like being cheated.
  • Challenging Sep 25, 2019

    By web204
    I like this game and I play every day. But the points don’t make sense. I agree that I am not getting the points I seem to earn. Another time, I had almost 900 and then the next day I was down to a little over 200. Not sure why. I do use hints but not that often, certainly not 20 times in a day. Now I add up or deduct each time I use the hint. And what do the other buttons do? I don’t want to select them to find out because they require use of more points but what are they for? (Thunder bolt and pointing finger). Please add descriptions in how to play the game. Also explain if there are any other reasons that point are deducted or not added. I think that would help. I like this game but I lowered the rate because I don’t understand some of the features.
  • Good in the beginning Feb 2, 2018

    By TX-NY-BX
    I finished this game from start to finish. There's times when you input a word and it'll say the word isn't in there just so you use coins or a spin. Then I would put in the same word AFTER using my coins and the word would be in there. Once you get to the upper levels you don't get as much coins (I get it because of a challenge) but at least I would have liked to get better spins. Then they charge you more for a hint as the levels go up. I started to see glitches but I kept the game until I finished it through. Like I said before I liked the game in the beginning towards the end I was ready to uninstall. Not many coins. It sikes you into purchasing coins and you get bull spins and they charge you more coins per hint smh.

    The game itself is good, progressive and simple to play. However the adverts are persistent, 30 seconds long that you can't escape from. Try to close it and it takes you to Google play. You then have to close that and return to the game. I am uninstalling at level 15. Too many ads.
  • Very addictive Nov 27, 2020

    By Dub-a-dee
    Enjoyed being # 1 for several days until the app started freezing. Down to 7% of people that could solve the puzzle. Tried opening and closing the app, turning off and on the sound switch and so on. After looking at a list of app helps it looks as though, despite being encouraged to invite more players on Facebook to get more coins, which I did not. That the biggest glitch is that there are too many players playing from all over the world that is the biggest problem. The servers can’t keep up with the players! Too much data it seems One thing on the list of help options was to delete and reload the app and your data would still be there. Nope. Recognizing me on the board it did but starting at ground zero. Too bad. Yes the app is free and I never bought any coins. Watched videos and added bonus words to use a clue now and then. Even building their revenue by buying coins for clues would not help if the adverts are not building a larger data base or space on a server. So disappointed.

    You guys have GOT to fix your spinning corruption that’s happening...when spinning for letters or tips each spin lands on the yellow 50% off hoping we’ll buy what y’all are selling..I can understand if it lands on one once in every few spins but landing on the same on each spin is in itself corrupt...I’ve left a message before about this but of course DIDNT get a answer..I’d like for it to land on a free hint 5 times or more in a row but that’s NOT gonna happen all because it’s free and you guys want us to pay for everything..I’ve bought spins before but until this game starts being fare I’m just gonna delete this game and every other game that’s made under this games name....
  • Review Jul 14, 2021

    By dapple07
    Whereas I have enjoyed this application, it is however abundantly and painfully clear that the foremost objective of this game is to sell you Instagram. At EVERY opportunity they have inserted invasive, obnoxious Instagram advertisements for your convenience. Personally, I would prefer to pay an upfront fee for the app than having to endure their constant commercial interruptions which greatly reduce your enjoyment! Another issue, this has happened twice now. At a certain point well into the progression, the screen goes BLACK with no way at all to do or communicate anything. Only solution was to delete the game and reinstall and start over! Definitely unsatisfactory!
  • There's better apps out there with the same concept Mar 26, 2021

    By jenbjenbjenbjenb
    The game is fun at first, but has a lot of faults. You have to pay to access the coins that you earn in game, they're held in a "piggy bank" but aren't stored there until you've played for a while, so you can access them at first but can't later (you need coins for hints, which you'll need after a while, trust me). The app doesn't recognize all words in the dictionary as actual words, so it limits the bonus words you can accumulate (which help you earn coins that you CAN access). The amount of ads is actually ridiculous, I don't think I've ever downloaded a game before with the amount that this one has in it. There's an ad after every game, even if it's only 3 words that need to be found, and every time you open the app. I started only playing this game when I wasn't connected to wifi and turned off my data so I didn't have to deal with them. There's also daily challenges where they want you to watch EVEN MORE ads. The app will host tournaments where you can earn a lot of coins if you win, but once you approach higher levels the amount of coin prizes drops. When I first started the tournaments there were awards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, but the most recent tournament I entered only had a prize for first place, so unless you play the game 24/7 you won't win. The theme is cute and if you like these kind of words games then you'll have fun, but all of the issues I stated above are why I'll be deleting the game.
  • Fun to play... Aug 11, 2019

    By Sjshshshshzhzh
    This is a great game to learn new words, there meanings, and a fun way to pass the time. The only thing I can’t wrap my head around is something with the scoring in the diamond tournaments. I look at the ranking and I’d be in first, and then I’ll play 1 puzzle (takes me about 5 minutes) and immediately look at the rankings again and somehow the person below me jumps up nearly 300 diamonds in 5 minutes pulling way ahead! It seems to only happen when I get near the top of the leaderboard which seems kind of odd. It’s happened several times. Not sure if it’s some kind of glitch or somebody who literally does nothing but play this game. Even still, getting 300 diamonds in 5 minutes comes out to finding a word literally every second. Doesn’t seem possible. But other than that in my opinion this is a fun game to play
  • Fun but.. Jun 18, 2021

    By #michlle tanner
    Don’t get me wrong I LOVED this game. To be honest it was one of my favorites. But these new updates that they are adding just doesn’t make the game appealing anymore. For starters, they added the update where you have to buy the coins you EARNED from the piggy bank, which is really annoying especially if you earned a lot of coins, and it doesn’t go into your coin count. The game just uses that to make more money. Another thing, the game just randomly crashes when you get to higher levels. The last thing is that even if you buy no ads, the ads are still on the screen, which is a real scam of money like the piggy bank. I don’t recommend getting this game, unless your willing to spend a lot of money trying to make it better.
  • Same old, same old Jun 12, 2020

    By Jeannie2015
    Thought this game had more levels of word finds. It’s been the same format and I’ve been playing for about 4 months. I went to look for the rules or how to play. The instructions were lacking and never mentioned the Knowledge score. What is that for? What can I do with the points? They just accumulate. Some of the puzzles seem to be recycled. Same words pop up all the time. I’m disappointed. When I downloaded the game it showed different formats of word finds. Add more directions on how to play, especially what the Knowledge points are for.
  • Its been frozen for like 2 weeks. Nov 25, 2020

    By Broadwayfairie
    I was enjoying this game, until it stopped working. One day, I opened it, and it was frozen. I mean, the little graphics were moving but, I couldn’t click anything. I deleted it, and downloaded again.... and it started me all the way at the beginning. So I lost everything I had already done. Fine, I accepted it. I played for a bit, and closed it. The next day, I tried to play...and it was “frozen” again. I guess I’ll just delete it, and find some other game to play. I gave 2 stars because it was good when it was playable.
  • Game review Feb 28, 2020

    By eye2ndtime
    I love the game itself with th challenges at each level. At first it seems great until you get close to the top during a tournament suddenly there is no help for a word and you have tried every combination there are “no videos available “ now unless of course you purchase some coins. This pressure to purchase is throughout the game and now because no videos were available and for me to stay close to the top I would have to purchase coins I am deleting this game and any others you recommended My nickname is eye that’s why it is taken!!!!
  • Why? May 9, 2021

    By I tune it out
    This game is fun to play. Having said that the ads for other games is outrageous. I’m getting tired of watching that idiot get the treasure or the lady freezing in her house. I have no issue with ads but the frequency of the ads is too often. I can only play one game before getting bombarded by ads. Also, I have absolutely no intention of buying more ridiculous games at unreasonably high prices. So, fewer ads please. You have no idea how annoying these ads are in addition to the stupid voice comments. Please, stop with the idiotic ads!
  • Repetitive ad, repetitive words Jun 30, 2020

    By RGV Dee
    The concept of this game is good. However, words are too often the same in multiple puzzles and, as you progress, there are no real challenges any more. Also, the repeat of the Word Wars ad after every other puzzle is very annoying and takes too much time away from playing. After reaching a higher level where it states only 21% are able to solve, I find this hard to believe as vocabulary is way too easy. Am deleting this game for these reasons.
  • Championships are rigged Sep 9, 2020

    By Ron_1954
    Crossword is fun to play and certainly challenges your knowledge of words. They also have championships; usually twice a week where, if you are in the top five, you win additional coins. However, be warned that the championships are rigged to make you play longer and longer. If you get to one of the top five positions, all of a sudden, you find that you’ve dropped three positions. Three players have magically appeared just above you. If you keep playing and work your way back up to the top five, after a couple of games, you’ve slid back down three positions. And it is always three positions and it happens in every game. So play this game if you enjoy the challenge but don’t bother with trying to win the championships because, when you get close, three more players magically appear above you.
  • Annoying voice ruins it. Sep 28, 2020

    By 77JAMES J77
    The gameplay concept is solid. A woman's voice says "good" over enthusiastically each time you get something correct. But she says it like a valley girl with an i sound before the d, "gooid". Same sample over and over. They should have at least recorded like 5 or 10 different takes and cycled through them. The annoying voice alone got me to delete the app within 2 minutes of installing it. Too much waiting for the animation between levels too.

    CROSSWORD JAM FRAUD!!! Apr 29, 2021

    By Britton aka Blitzy Cain
    I loved this game ~ out of curiosity I wanted to see if I could watch 30 videos to have over 1000 points when needed for getting a letter when ~ that worked but after only 2 games using 1 point in each game I was down to 22 points. Farewell fun game!!!

    By Aurora Lee
    Downloaded this game only hours ago. Initially, game played smoothly for the first few rounds. I was really enjoying the game. That was until, suddenly, it began to freeze and seriously lag. Experienced frequent lagging as I attempted to swiped for words. Then having to wait for the word to actually appear. Very frustrating. What can be done to correct these issues of freezing and lagging? I would have given 5 stars otherwise.
  • Not as good as I thought. Apr 26, 2019

    By LantyArizona
    While the game starts being so exciting and new, one eventually runs out of good words. Some words like 'isle' and other repetitious words can always get you out of a jam. However, eventually the game becomes predictable. Sometimes one spell words knowing they are indeed correct and should be able to obtain mega bonus points, the game does not recognizes them and you don't get the bonus for the effort. Sometimes I connect the letters and form the correct word however it does not catch. It seems the game wants me to use all my bonus points but the object is to leave me without bonus points for when I really are in a jam. When this occurs, it really becomes frustrating because the cue to the initial word in question, is the same word I just connected. And I was right. Not good. It seems that if you want to improve people's brains, redesign the game to include a comprehensive on command dictionary. For those words that are unfamiliar to you. So, this game helps you to parrot and repeat usual words. Not so much brain exercising but mimicking and parroting. Not so much de eloping brain. More like a broken record. Copy some traits like Kindle. It has a comprehensive dictionary for those words you want to learn meaning to. Then, you learn to use them properly. It also has a Wikipedia link and Internet link. I do't mean to through shade. Only providing points so the game could be a real brain exercise.
  • Crossword Jam Sep 8, 2020

    By okie too
    THIS GAME CHEATS. IT WITHHOLDS POINTS AND FINALLY STARTS EXITING THE GAME REPEATEDLY. WORST GAME EVER. This started out great! It quickly became my very favorite game! In fact, I am currently on Game 2360, country is Montenegro, and the percent of people completing that game is 0.85%. Now...the problem is that for the last few countries the game has cheated me out of Bonus Points. It will either turn to a black screen or just not give the points. It varies. I first thought it was just a one time thing or maybe a few days’ thing. Wrong. I also questioned my internet but that was not an issue either. The withholding of points worsened as I continued completing the games and going on to the next country. It is now to the point that I rarely get any points at all. Today it didn’t give me the consecutive day points. This is a serious problem that needs to be addressed. In the beginning and 3/4 of the way to where I am I would give it a five star rating. Now I wouldn’t even give it one star. The puzzles are difficult enough as I progress. Crossword Jam should not cheat and withhold points. Shame on them. I TAKE AWAY THE ONE STAR I GAVE THIS GAME IN MY PREVIOUS POST. It will NOT let me proceed. It keeps blanking the screen and exiting out of the game—repeatedly. Currently I am on game 2505 and the country is Bolivia. I have tried and tried and it will not let me finish the game. In addition, it WILL NOT GIVE me ANY points even though I earn them.

    One word: SLEAZY I played this crossword game on my iPhone for years for Free. Now I switch to Android & this same game, still loaded with ads for merch & in-app purchases, which I tolerated for 12 years on iPhone, is now a total screw-job, masquerading as another watch-endless-ads vehicle. NOT TRUE. The set-up: You play/earn coins based on your completion times. Gold coins dribble into a 🐷 bank when filled they insist you "claim" from them for US dollars. OR THEY CUT YOU OFF! @#%&-ers!!!
  • Black Screen Jul 16, 2021

    By Mjwill52
    Have been playing this game for months and really enjoyed it. I could even deal with an ad between each game. I was somewhere in the 1250 level (I don’t remember the country) and started getting a black screen, like it was trying to load a video ad and couldn’t get it started. The only way to get out of it was to close the game down and restart it. That is until yesterday… when I close the game and try to restart it, it just opens back to the black screen. I’ve restarted the game several times, made sure the app was completely closed out, shut down & restarted my iPad several times, and even let the app stay open to the black screen for hours hoping that it would close on its on after a time however, nothing happened. I hesitate in deleting and reinstalling it because I would rather not lose the levels achieved. From the recent posts I’ve read, this is not an isolated case and appears to be tied to a recent update. I hope the developers are busy working on the problem and will have an update to fix it very soon and please fix it so we don’t lose our current progress, coins or points. If you can fix the problem I will update the rating.

    Junk. I want the game shown on the ad. This is a ridiculous repetition of the same old swipe for simple words to fit into the puzzle. It's all programmed for words that aren't too complicated. Where is the puzzle shown in the stupid ad?? More nonsense than google play and software team afraid of being original and different from ALL THE REST. UNINSTALLED.
  • I used to like it Jan 29, 2021

    By CJ_proartz
    Recently, nearly every time I complete a game, it wants me to submit my name for, I’m not sure what. There is no way to get out of that screen except to submit my name, or turn off my device and start it up again. Then I play another game or 2 and that comes up again. I just want to play the game. I don’t care about statistics, scores or tournaments. Please just let me play one game after another by allowing me to exit that “submit” screen. Otherwise, I will stop playing & delete the game. There are plenty of similar games. Update: I started playing this on my iPhone instead of my iPad. The above problem went away. But I often get an ad and can’t get out of it. Clicking done or X doesn’t work. Today when I opened the game a screen came up about tournament results. Nothing happened when I hit “see results” & it won’t X out. The only way I can continue is to turn the phone off & on again. Then soon an ad won’t close & I have to turn it off & on again, and again..
  • Please develop additional levels soon! Jun 1, 2021

    By Oklahoma Teacher
    Too bad I can’t give this game a 0. I’m giving up on an update, so I’m deleting it. Too bad, because I used to really enjoy the game. It’s been so long since this game was last updated that I wish I could give it a 0 rating! It’s been weeks, if not months, since I could last play this game. If I could, I would give it 0 stars! This game STILL hasn’t been updated! What gives?! I had originally given this game four stars (see original post below), but am downgrading my rating because it’s taking the developer so long to add additional levels. I’ve paid extra to be able to play more, but so far my money is being wasted. No fair! I enjoy this game very much, but I HATE being hassled repeatedly to “show them some love.” I continue to give this game a four-star rating, but am seriously considering dropping it to three stars because of this hassle.

    Don't bother downloading false advertising promises a game where you fill in the blanks only for it to be a 'Wordscapes' wannabe, stick to Wordscapes better game. Too many ads (after every puzzle) why do I have to pay to receive coins I've won that are in my piggy bank? The developers are ripping you off.
