    Too many cheaters. Apr 21, 2022

    By Bonnie R
    Too many cheaters. When playing the tournaments, in the last 1-2 hours, someone's score always flies by thousands of points! Not possible unless they're cheating. You don't win much when you come in 1st anyway but it still ruins the fun when there are cheaters who are bored and have nothing better to do.

    Loved the game until cheaters came to play Mar 16, 2022

    By Tina
    So I absolutely loved this game! Yesterday I was playing a treasure hunt and I was in 3rd. I only use my brain in this game. I had 1,200 points. My opponents had about 2 and 3 thousand. In 30 minutes my opponent had 11,200. This is NOT possible and it's obvious he is cheating. Like, why would you play if you have to cheat? Needless to say I checked his scores and he had a high score of 38,000. I guess he/she isn't smart enough to play right. I Uninstalled the game. Please look into this.

    I really enjoyed this game initially but as I proceeded through the levels I realised that most high achievers spent money to win - I used my brain not my bank account so I will never succeed - leaving this to find another user friendly challenge and taking lots of friends and family with me ?

    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!!!

    After a while you forget how to spell, or question if you spell correctly even though you went in confident! That’s what’s tough, really. The words are easy and you’ll see at the top how many players were able to complete the puzzle- the closer you get to 5% the better you can feel if you rely on comparing your performance to others’, lol. I like that the words are relatively easy when fitting them in the puzzle is challenging. It makes you want to play time and time again. I’ve had to catch myself to not play when I found that a movie or family convo got a tad boring, imo (especially during Covid lockdown). If, for example, you’re waiting for your doctor at a visit and have already read read the news and greeted fellow visitors where some draw you into interesting convo about… a blissful nothing sometimes, this game is a great time-killer! Get it, guys. More specifics: travel through countries around the world, knock out different levels from a sleepy owl, and broaden your vocabulary by happenstance a few times. No, happenstance is not in the game (so far), maybe something as long a word will come along later. I’m on Level 566 towards the end of Cambodia, for reference. Enjoy!

    Been playing this game for a couple of years now, and until lately, you always could x out of ads. That has changed, and I'm finding myself forced to watch 30-second ads every couple of rounds that I can't escape. This is a deal- breaker for me. I liked this game because it DIDN'T force you to watch unwanted ads. Sorry they've caved in and become like all the rest. Updating 3-20--I didn't uninstall. No more 30-second forced ads, but now it's making my phone hot. Uninstalling.
  • Great game Oct 30, 2020

    I really like this game. Some word games they get so much harder as you keep playing that it becomes a matter of you buying points or coins for clues to be able to keep playing. This game isn’t that way. It’s just a fun word game. You certainly can buy coins if you want to but I don’t. I earn them through videos are other ways that they let you earn coins instead of just throwing money at the app.I’ve had this weird game on my phone just as long as words with friends, it’s been a while and I have really loved playing it. Thank you for making this fair for people that can’t afford to buy all the extra coins for help and still want to play a fun word game. I highly recommend it. This game is not full of annoying pop-up ads either. There’s a nice balance which makes it fun to play.
  • 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).

    Since the last update, now I can't play it. It opens up, goes to the tournament screen that wants you to click on to see the results, and when I do it closes. It won't let me bypass it. Not sure what's going on? Before this, I loved playing it. Very disappointing. Thank you for fixing the problem!! It works great now!

    This game challenges my vocabulary and my memory. Yaaaaa! Thanks guys. Update: still enjoy the game but the bad part is it freezes alot so much so that it can be difficult to play. Still freezes but not as much. I have never reached a level in any game that was this high (over 700)

  • Ads are Inappropriate Dec 30, 2021

    By Unicorn5g
    Hi to whoever is reading this. Crossword Jam is a great game, but has constant ads, and most of them are frightening or inappropriate. The last ad I saw was an advertisement for a pill that makes you lose weight. This kept popping up over and over, so I just turned off my Wifi and played that way. There was another ad that was about “Royal Match”, and the ads are frightening. One of the so called “Playable Ads” showed a king underwater, and you had to solve a puzzle to keep him from drowning. If you want to make a game that kids can play, can you at least make the ads appropriate? Please and thank you? Also, some of the words that are in the dictionary are apparently incorrect when you match it up here. Isn’t RING a word? This is very annoying, especially when it’s the last word of the puzzle. Please fix this so these words are valid! Otherwise, this app is great! The levels seem to go on forever and there are more than one hundred countries you can go through. The power-ups aren’t bad at all, and the levels are challenging.

    Fun and fast moving. I did enjoy this game until recently. Now it goes to black screen when starting to load up. I have to "close all" to get out of it, and my phone gets hot. I will uninstall, and lose all my progress. Don't want to, but I don't see any other way as I've tried to load up several times now without success.

  • Fill in the words Apr 15, 2021

    By bugt
    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.

    Was a great game until it started freezing my phone. Just stops working, can't close it, can't do anything but wait until an error finally pops up stating the app stopped responding, then I can select to close it. During one freeze, I received a phone call that I could not answer. Don't know why it takes over the entire phone operations, but it does. Uninstalling, unfortunately.

    Been playing for about 2 months. I was in the 3.5% of players. Since the last update I have had issues with the screen selecting, black screen so I had to completely shut the game down, overheating of my phone, and not always getting all the coins I had earned. I had really enjoyed the game. Today I continued to get the black screen, so I uninstalled and reinstalled to see if that would help. It took 45 minutes to reinstall. All of my progress is GONE! I will be Uninstalling again. I am done.😡

    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.

    Was enjoying app until today. I'm now getting a black screen when I launch the app and I've already restarted my phone. If I uninstall and re-install, all my progress will be lost. Also, the point balance needs to update between levels or give the player the option to update the point balance at their convenience. Right now, it randomly updates in the middle of a level breaking the users focus.
  • 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.

    I play games while listening to audio books. When the (too frequent) ads pop up, they don't just pause my book sound, the stop it. So to play this game, I have to stop playing, close the game app, open audible, restart my book, minimize my book app, open the game app back up, and resume both activities. Plus....in a seperate matter, game progress is not saved on the cloud or Facebook, so when I had to reset my phone recently, I had to start the game over. There was no restore progress.

    After a while you forget how to spell, or question if you spell correctly even though you went in confident! That’s what’s tough, really. The words are easy and you’ll see at the top how many players were able to complete the puzzle- the closer you get to 5% the better you can feel if you rely on comparing your performance to others’, lol. I like that the words are relatively easy when fitting them in the puzzle is challenging. It makes you want to play time and time again. I’ve had to catch myself to not play when I found that a movie or family convo got a tad boring, imo (especially during Covid lockdown). If, for example, you’re waiting for your doctor at a visit and have already read read the news and greeted fellow visitors where some draw you into interesting convo about… a blissful nothing sometimes, this game is a great time-killer! Get it, guys. More specifics: travel through countries around the world, knock out different levels from a sleepy owl, and broaden your vocabulary by happenstance a few times. No, happenstance is not in the game (so far), maybe something as long a word will come along later. I’m on Level 566 towards the end of Cambodia, for reference. Enjoy!

  • Relaxing & Fun Dec 2, 2021

    By Alyce_01
    I rarely write reviews, but based on how much I have played this game, I feel it is only fair. I love word games and this one is great to pass the time, expand my vocabulary, relax me when I’m stressed, and easy to play with a podcast or music in the background. It’s not completely mindless, but does require enough focus that other worries and thoughts slip away. I don’t think I’ve ever gotten so far on a game before. The way they create competition keeps me motivated to keep playing. I don’t find that I need to purchase coins as there are usually plenty of opportunities to get them. However, I do stop playing if I’m low and can’t figure out a hard puzzle. Regardless, you do not have to purchase anything to be successful in this game. I honestly love this game and play it every single day.
  • The best game Dec 4, 2021

    By Runer girl
    I love this game it’s educational because you get to make your own words and they don’t have to be right then it just comes from as bonus words and it doesn’t pay to pay for stuff so I think this game is one of the best games in the world you don’t need to pay for anything and if you lose you lose and it doesn’t time youBecause when I get time usually I feel the game but they don’t time you so it’s easier and they let you suffer your cards and let you do Mr. owl and you get hints they don’t need to do it by yourself they help you’re not like 00 I’m not gonna help you but they actually help you look in your hands in it like you have bonus word and you get presents if you finish your world

    Great to keep your vocabulary sharp. Challenging and fun. I was quite impressed with this game. I am enjoying the mind jogging experience of finishing each level by helping me recall words I seldom use. I like that the game is solo yet still challenging. There are commercials, but I don't mind them. It has become a refreshing new favorite word game to add to my collection.
  • 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.
  • 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! :)
  • 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).

    Since the last update, now I can't play it. It opens up, goes to the tournament screen that wants you to click on to see the results, and when I do it closes. It won't let me bypass it. Not sure what's going on? Before this, I loved playing it. Very disappointing. Thank you for fixing the problem!! It works great now!

    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.

    Have played this game numerous times. When I reach the higher levels it loads, then switches to a black screen and I have to lose all my progress, Uninstall and reload and reinstall game software again. This is my third time in two years. I like the game but am not sure if I want to continue with it .

    Been playing this game for a couple of years now, and until lately, you always could x out of ads. That has changed, and I'm finding myself forced to watch 30-second ads every couple of rounds that I can't escape. This is a deal- breaker for me. I liked this game because it DIDN'T force you to watch unwanted ads. Sorry they've caved in and become like all the rest. Updating 3-20--I didn't uninstall. No more 30-second forced ads, but now it's making my phone hot. Uninstalling.
  • Ads are Inappropriate Dec 30, 2021

    By Unicorn5g
    Hi to whoever is reading this. Crossword Jam is a great game, but has constant ads, and most of them are frightening or inappropriate. The last ad I saw was an advertisement for a pill that makes you lose weight. This kept popping up over and over, so I just turned off my Wifi and played that way. There was another ad that was about “Royal Match”, and the ads are frightening. One of the so called “Playable Ads” showed a king underwater, and you had to solve a puzzle to keep him from drowning. If you want to make a game that kids can play, can you at least make the ads appropriate? Please and thank you? Also, some of the words that are in the dictionary are apparently incorrect when you match it up here. Isn’t RING a word? This is very annoying, especially when it’s the last word of the puzzle. Please fix this so these words are valid! Otherwise, this app is great! The levels seem to go on forever and there are more than one hundred countries you can go through. The power-ups aren’t bad at all, and the levels are challenging.

    It is a good game but ads get in the way. Also after playing it for awhile the lines you draw from letter to letter begin to stick or won't work at all. I never get credit for the coins I earn and the game keeps on trying to get me to buy the hints instead of giving me the credit I have already earned. The upside is that all of the games are ruined the same way.

    This could be a great game except for one problem. If you play it for a few days in a row you notice that many.words are frequently repeated. Such as arc fat, can, thy, etc. Perhaps having different levels of difficulty with. Longer words as the difficulty increases would make for a more stimulating experience. As much as I am enjoying the game I am not challenged by it. After just a few days.
  • Fun game…misleading leaderboard Dec 12, 2021

    By Th3H1ggsB0s0n
    I do enjoy the game but a few things bug me about it. 1) There are numerous occasions where actual words are not considered words (even bonus words). The dictionary needs an overhaul, as apparently “ding” is not a words. 2) The leaderboard...absolutely fake. I played last night and the “person” in the #2 spot was at 3602 points (I was in 3rd). I started playing again this AM, but checked before I started…”person” was still at 3602. I played ONE round which took under a minute, and immediately dropped to 4th. The “person” in 2nd went up to 3802. So in that short span, this player mysteriously started playing at the same exact time and somehow managed to get an impossible 200 points… I have no doubt that if I spent money on this, the outcome of #2 would differ greatly, but I’m not spending money on a word game. Just get rid of the leaderboard success placebo as it’s just false advertising.
  • 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.

    Loved this game initially Jan 11, 2022

    By summa breeze
    I really enjoyed this game initially but as I proceeded through the levels I realised that most high achievers spent money to win - I used my brain not my bank account so I will never succeed - leaving this to find another user friendly challenge and taking lots of friends and family with me ?

    It's fun to play until you play a league like Treasure Hunt. Had several experiences where I was leading in points with an hour to go, leave the game before time expires, and come back to view results to see I've lost half my points and lead. Thus, dropping me down a league because of it. I would rather not play a league but there's no way around it.
  • Fun but.... Apr 19, 2022

    By "name is taken"
    I'll listen to an audiobook or music while playing the Crossword Jam game, and an ad will pop up. I understand there are going to be ads. I even play extra ads for the bonus content. My problem is what the ads do while they are running. The ads blare over the audio I was enjoying while playing your game and at an alarmingly loud decimal while completely disabling the audio app I was listening to while playing. I’ve turned off the gameplay sounds and the background music in within the app's settings and have muted my phone to no avail. I have no problem with the ads am; I'm not willing to pay $9.99 to disable the ads as that is too much, plus the Crossword Jam app will freeze my phone 10 out of the 10 times I play it. Is there some way to disable all app sounds, including app ads, while the Crossword Jam app is running so that I can continue to listen to the audio I was already enjoying on the other audio app? Nothing in your app’s settings nor my iPhone notification settings seems capable of correcting this problem. The only settings for the app in my phone’s setting menu are the generic notifications settings which are already turned off. I want to know why you choose to override my preferences and blare your advertisement’s audio over my music or audiobook and at such alarmingly loud levels? I’ll watch the ads with zero complaints but shutting down my preferred audio is not ok. How are you going to fix this?

    When I first started playing this game it was fun now it uses up the battery on my tablet so fast I don't get to play very long because they added so many advertisements/ commercials you can't get out of until you close out the whole program! That's a bummer because I really was enjoying this word jam puzzle. You need to cut out some of these darn commercials or advertisements. It takes a fun out of your game.

    I loved this game! I played several challenges and won. The last challenge I was winning and as soon as I would get ahead, some player would pass me by 2000 points or more within 1 minute! They did this every time I would get ahead. No way you can get that many points in that length of time! So, unfortunately, I uninstalled the game.

    Too many cheaters. Apr 21, 2022

    By Bonnie R
    Too many cheaters. When playing the tournaments, in the last 1-2 hours, someone's score always flies by thousands of points! Not possible unless they're cheating. You don't win much when you come in 1st anyway but it still ruins the fun when there are cheaters who are bored and have nothing better to do.

    Loved the game until cheaters came to play Mar 16, 2022

    By Tina
    So I absolutely loved this game! Yesterday I was playing a treasure hunt and I was in 3rd. I only use my brain in this game. I had 1,200 points. My opponents had about 2 and 3 thousand. In 30 minutes my opponent had 11,200. This is NOT possible and it's obvious he is cheating. Like, why would you play if you have to cheat? Needless to say I checked his scores and he had a high score of 38,000. I guess he/she isn't smart enough to play right. I Uninstalled the game. Please look into this.

    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!!!

    Was a great game until it started freezing my phone. Just stops working, can't close it, can't do anything but wait until an error finally pops up stating the app stopped responding, then I can select to close it. During one freeze, I received a phone call that I could not answer. Don't know why it takes over the entire phone operations, but it does. Uninstalling, unfortunately.

    Been playing for about 2 months. I was in the 3.5% of players. Since the last update I have had issues with the screen selecting, black screen so I had to completely shut the game down, overheating of my phone, and not always getting all the coins I had earned. I had really enjoyed the game. Today I continued to get the black screen, so I uninstalled and reinstalled to see if that would help. It took 45 minutes to reinstall. All of my progress is GONE! I will be Uninstalling again. I am done.😡
  • 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.

    Was enjoying app until today. I'm now getting a black screen when I launch the app and I've already restarted my phone. If I uninstall and re-install, all my progress will be lost. Also, the point balance needs to update between levels or give the player the option to update the point balance at their convenience. Right now, it randomly updates in the middle of a level breaking the users focus.
  • 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.

    I play games while listening to audio books. When the (too frequent) ads pop up, they don't just pause my book sound, the stop it. So to play this game, I have to stop playing, close the game app, open audible, restart my book, minimize my book app, open the game app back up, and resume both activities. Plus....in a seperate matter, game progress is not saved on the cloud or Facebook, so when I had to reset my phone recently, I had to start the game over. There was no restore progress.
  • 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.
