    I finished this game in two days. Which means I enjoyed it, but it was too short lived! It could include more challenges, like minimum length of a word, no repeats, etc. I tried it because I love word games and the origin story of this game, specifically. There are occasional short ads, which aren't too annoying for me.

    This game gets pretty tricky when it has to be so many letters, end with N, with a timer. I also appreciate being able to just buy the game and not have to watch ads. Remember those days? Regarding complaints, I have entered words that it didn’t recognize but more often I’ve ended up entering a word on accident I definitely don’t recognize. I like that names aren’t included. For some reason, when I’m stuck, names just start crowding out real words. I don’t know, I just saw the reviews and thought they needed a more positive response. It’s well worth $1.99.

    I really like this game. I haven't found another one like it. There is one thing that's very frustrating however. On the harder levels (i.e. Words ending with M) even though there's a free "Shake" when no words can be found, the timer keeps going. The timer should stop until a board with possible words come up. I lost over 45 seconds looking for a board with possible words. Thanks.

    I see that the way this app’s dictionary has been compiled has been addressed in other reviews. It’s still a bit confusing and inconsistent. It’s frustrating when the app doesn’t recognize a word that appears in every English dictionary. I’ve otherwise enjoyed the first part of this game quite a bit. I don’t enjoy the levels that don’t allow three letter words—I’m here for something relaxing and easy—so when I get to those, I delete it. So far, I’ve re-downloaded it every time.

    Fun game except for two things. I turned the sound off but every time I open the app, even though the sound says "off" it is on. I have to turn it on then off again to have no sound . The other thing is the way the new letters drop. They bounce a bit when they hit the board. It looks cool but you can't use them till they settle down.
  • Fun but not for big iPads. Feb 6, 2022

    Game loads in portrait format, full screen which makes it difficult to play on 13” screen. Since my pad is most useful with the keyboard attached, it lives in landscape format, where I also play. The game requires ability to scan entire board quickly it pick out words. One of the best word games I’ve found.

    This not the Wordle you are looking for. That said, I've enjoyed playing this, with some caveats. The nonclassic was fun until I got a starting letter I can't beat, so I can't play that anymore. Classic version wastes time with the way letters populate. If you look at the (useful) info on how many words are possible, you've wasted more. I find myself playing the same words over and over for speed's sake, which is leading to some boredom.
  • Easy to play Jan 19, 2022

    By Boogiesugar
    This game is entertaining and easy to play multiple rounds. I agree with the other review that the dictionary is terrible. There are many common English words that are not included in the dictionary, such as mart. It makes me wonder if this game was created in a non-English-speaking country. The other thing I don’t like about it is that it’s a short journey through the levels and then it starts you over at level one.

    Fast paced. A nice challenge w/o being 'hard'. Surprisingly fun. Not a lot of ads and the ones you do see you can skip. You can stop the game @ anytime and jump back in later...this is a free game, I cannot find much wrong with it. 2 thumbs up.
  • Great concept, bad dictionary Jan 10, 2022

    By Skater294
    The concept is fantastic. Almost everything about it is great. But another game that can use a dictionary that acknowledges common words (but also maybe not proper nouns) would be way better. I guess someone will copy the concept and get it right (or maybe someone already has?)

    It was a good game at first, taking you through several levels. But it suddenly seemed to stop going through the levels and stuck on one game. It's become increasingly slow to open and has no refresh button when it seems to get stuck.
  • Frustrating Jan 9, 2022

    By twinbeans
    First, to pay for a game and then still get more sales pushed is annoying. But what’s frustrating is (1) some legitimate words aren’t accepted, (2) it’s either all sounds or none — I can’t stand all the noise during play so turn it off, but the countdown clicker would be really helpful, and (3) there’s no explanation about what, for instance, causes a round to end, so it seems random as to how long a round goes. Sorry I paid for this.

    I was going to give this game a 4 at least, however, I was on level 121 gold, having issues with 5 letter words ending in 'G'. I played DAILY until today when I thought, I will watch a video to earn some hint points. After I did, it reset. I went back into the game and it was at 0%, where usually the number rolls up to my current level. I put in alot of time hoping to get to the end. I am apprehensive to start over if it randomly ends after lvl 120. Sad. Can you help? It's at 0. Wth? 😟

    UPDATE... Started freezing up every time I opened it. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail. Changed my review from 5 stars to 1 star because I couldn't give ZERO STARS! I enjoyed MOST of the Wordle sets. My favorite were the any word any letter and the end with sets. For some reason my brain fought with the starts with sets, hahaha!

    By Brett Ward
    Game is ok, but after making a mistake and getting a word score for it, I decided to lookup the word, it doesn't exist. Tried multiple sources. Then checked various words, and many of the possible words given don't exist in the English language

    By Steve L
    Apart from the game not knowing lots of words it's really easy. The levels are all locked and so you go through lots of sessions getting words in set times. Once you get to the end of that level which you have no idea how as you just have to keep playing and it just suddenly seems to end. Then you go to next padlocked level. But you end up somehow doing all the levels without knowing. I have done them all in a few evenings. Game seems to just end. Too easy

    Addictive and well-designed! Thank you. One small fix: In Classic Easy mode you wrote that no repeats are allowed, but they should be and are. Otherwise, perfection.

    By ethan lacasse
    I was looking for the other wordle 😅 sorry yall (just saw the description). I thought I'd give a genuine review tho. 😁 This game seems really straightforward and relaxed, I think it could be really good. The controls work well, and the ads aren't invasive. Unfortunately I found myself a little frustrated after repeatedly entering words that are not in the games dictionary. Additionally, i find it somewhat visually unappealing. The design is clean, but it feels a little sterile.

    By Don Forbes
    This is a great game, thanks. I would like to see bonus points for word length, since the winning strategy (for classic model at least) seems to be to stick to easy 3-letter words. Would also like an option to review all words for the game just completed. BTW my scoring rate more than doubled with recent update, not complaining but finding it hard to believe I suddenly got so much smarter.

  • Timer Apr 3, 2022

    By creative writing major
    It would be nice if when you use the joker you had a little more time. Some of the words that are listed in the dictionary are a bit ridiculous and there’s no way you could find a 10 letter word in 1.5 minutes.
  • Levels Jan 23, 2022

    By Mandi w an I
    I wish there were more levels. Also, I would prefer the sound to stay off when it’s set to OFF. It doesn’t. You have to go back to settings, turn sound ON and then back OFF. Kinda annoying.
  • Fun, but App has issues Apr 29, 2022

    By Slow Going
    I love to play this every morning over coffee, but what really irritates me is when it does not recognize legitimate words from the dictionary. It needs to be web based….so I can play it where ever I am.
  • Feb 28, 2022

    By Deborah Danan
    Cute game but has nothing to do with wordle. Plays like Boggle. Few ads which is lovely. One major drawback is the main game is not timed which makes it rather boring. I've played the classic (which is timed and I've reached a score of 315 which I doubt I'll beat so now I'm bored of that.) I thought if you change the setting to "hard" it would be timed but it isn't, it just makes you play more words. So I'll be deleting the app soon bc I'm kinda bored of it in its current form.
  • Update dictionary Jan 15, 2022

    By jffj4if
    I am really enjoying this game, but it is frustrating when common words are not accepted, eg “sate”. I see that the dictionary has been updated at least once, but it still needs more words.
  • Needs better dictionary Jan 13, 2022

    By Seegg
    They say they improved the dictionary, but it still doesn’t hold up to other word games that use the SOWPODS (for example).
  • Jan 30, 2022

    By Lynette Smulders
    Found this game when looking for the Wordle web game, realise yours is older! Worked through 50 levels quickly, now play Classic. Would like to choose length of timer, or play without timer. Would also like to see list of words found in round and how they were scored. Seems that the "best" word listed at the end of the round isn't always the highest scored word? Fun game, needs a few variations to keep interest, eg progress tracker how many rounds played, how many words found, avg score etc.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this game until it began to feel impossible to achieve. Finding four letter words, all with letters that you can only reach next to each other with a finger glide, with a time limit of 2 minutes and you've run out of 'shake' or 'rotate' ability is incredibly hard. This is especially true of words beginning with A or ending with N for example. I'm now not wanting to play as it feels like I won't achieve it.
  • Eh….not super enthusiastic Feb 1, 2022

    By MaxineFair8177
    The concept is great but delivery is not all that great. Played a few games and closed app. Today I go to open and play and it gets stuck on Fat Cat Studios screen and doesn’t load. Tried to close out all the way and reopen with no change. Not excited to pay $1.99 to use an app once. I would assume glitches would be minimal with a paid app on a very new phone.
  • This is not the Wordle you hear about. Jan 18, 2022

    By NotAnApp junkie
    So I heard about a fun daily word game. I was not aware that it was on a website instead of an app. I searchin the App Store and find this app. Which is Paid for. Imagine my surprise when I realize it is not the game everyone is raving about. And I paid for it. Not happy. And the game is barely ok. Poor dictionary and slow dropping letters makes it more frustrating

    I've now completed all levels. They need to allow users to deactivate the timer feature. As you progress to 5 letter words, the board often shows 0-5 words possible. It becomes hugely frustrating. Time ticks away as you have to repeatedly shake & reload. Sometimes I have to shake 5 or 6 times before getting a suitable board to play on. The game also needs to reshake automatically if there are 0 words available. And the timer starts before the words have even settled in position, losing time.

    I enjoy playing this game. However there is no exit button on my game screen. Perhaps the game screen is too large on my tablet? I need to reboot my tablet to exit. Very annoying. And today the ads in the middle of the game have started this same annoying action. As though you haven't loaded in enough ads. Please resolve this problem or I will need to uninstall.
  • Fun for a while Jan 28, 2022

    By Mchiffenberg
    Fun, seemed addicting at first. Was looking for the game thats gone viral and ended up paying for this - sorry I did now. No matter how much I play successfully, I never get above 2% complete on levels, and many common English words aren’t in the dictionary. Though oddly enough, proper nouns (names) are common enough. I’m quitting.
