  • Fun Game! Apr 10, 2012

    By PhillieKat
    This game is extremely addicting! The only problem I have encountered is the game board is no longer showing since I reached Level 72. I see the opponent and their ranking, but can no longer see their game either. I have tried turning my iPad off and then turning it back on but still no game. Not sure what to do. I also wonder if some 'opponents' are machine generated because no one can do some of the puzzles at the speed some are being done.

    This is a very enjoyable and you need to put on your thinking caps. Keeps your brain working. YogiZPoole I do not know what happened to Scramble Words but I had over 100 hints left. I enjoy Words and Riddles but I had to buy hints on this game also. I would like to know where my, over 100 hints, are located. I really like your games but I will stop playing them if this is not explained to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It took me a while to figure out how to play this! I thought that the end result would look like a crossword puzzle. I don't play this competitively at all and could care less when I am informed of an "opponent's" score. I take my time and enjoy the music that comes along with this app. I wish there were a way to get back to a specific puzzle if I want to stop before completing it.

    By kkgirliek
    After making it to the 75th level that was it! I started over but things got weird, it keeps telling me to connect to the Internet so that I can play against other people, well as far as I know I am connected .. I didn't do anything different. Also the levels are screwed up, Level 42 looks like level 1! I've deleted and reloaded the App several times, very frustrating!

    By Seatac33
    I cannot stand the background jazz racket, and why do we HAVE to be on the internet to play any of Absolutist's games? There are times when a person does not HAVE internet access. ALL of their games are that way. I should have remembered that from my computer days. Haven't they ever heard of AI? If I can't play a game when I WANT to, then I don't WANT to play a game when I can. Toodle doo, Absolutist games, you're outta here!!!!
  • Score disappears again... Sep 26, 2016

    By Veronica__33
    Once again after reaching a high score it completely disappears. When I log on to play I am asked for my name again as a new player and my score is gone. The only player that seems to keep a high score is Nan or Nanze. Beginning to believe unless you are one of the two names I mentioned you will never keep your score nor win this game. Very disappointing... Very odd...
  • Problems Jun 14, 2012

    By Mzbluett
    Do you check out the problems? I see others are having the same problem as myself when I get down to the last two words they don't have the correct letters to make a word. Also the person playing against me score is counting out of control. I did enjoy the game until these issues came up so now I am changing my rating.
  • Upgrade failure Jun 14, 2012

    By MarinaJC
    I upgraded this game for more levels and everything seemed fine for the last few days. Today when I went to play it I was back to level one and it was as if the game reset itself so I have to pay AGAIN to upgrade for more levels!! Other than that it is kind o addicting.
  • Scramble Words May 28, 2012

    By Old Boat 123
    Fun game to play - lots of software issues and glitches! Got to level 72 and the game locks up and starts showing scores of other players instead of beginning a new level! When a notification message from another program pops up the game automatcally closes. Sometimes while playing, the game just closes and you have to reopen. FIX THE SOFTWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Don't waste your money Oct 22, 2012

    By Toeknee11
    Ok, it says it is free, but only 10 levels, so I pay for this..and you only get 30 levels..you have to pay for the others... And the 30 levels are the same words over and over..so not worth the money, completed the 30 levels in a hour
  • Confused... Apr 18, 2012

    By EGrae61610
    Why do I have to enter my apple id and password twice and THEN give my security question?? The game forces you to rate it b4 you can get more levels for free...then when you decide to purchase it wants your password twice and your apple id security question? Sound fishy to me..won't be upgrading to the full version!!
  • Was a lot of fun Jun 2, 2012

    By BabbleOn1279
    Stuck on level 45 with 2 words left and no combinations work. Cannot complete the level and move on. I've been through all levels before so I know it works. I've unloaded and reloaded the game twice but always get stuck on a level in the forties.

    I played it for a couple of months already, and this update is spot-on. Now you can make your own puzzles and what more - send them to your friends. Facebook support is in, but you can also exchange the riddles by e-mail - which is convenient if you care about your privacy. In one word, great update!

  • Levels Feb 19, 2015

    By Ilovemyrussian
    I absolutely love this game! It's challenging but easy and it's definitely a lot of fun. I really like the you have the option to submit your own games. The only thing I don't like is that you only get 10 (at least that's what it gave to me) free puzzles and then you have to pay to get more. :/ There should be more free levels before you have to buy things.
  • Game good, ads annoyingly Apr 3, 2012

    By Gc123223
    Ads and far too annoying and requests for review are too frequent. You have to play for a while before you can rate something properly! Otherwise, I like the concept and it gets my brain working, but again, it's hard to say this soon in to the experience

    Needs a few more free levels to help decide if you really like it enough to pay for it, also when i went to upgrade (mainly to see what it would cost) it asked for my info without telling me the price. Sorry, but thats not gonna happen!

  • Can't always finish Jun 8, 2012

    By Grammie2201
    This game is frustrating, but addictive. HOWEVER, the last few games I've played there is one letter incorrect and can't complete the level. Also the hints are a waste. Won't buy them again. Twice I've used hint and get nothing...... If your component has finished there should be a way to give up and see completed puzzle. DON'T GET THE SCORING EITHER.
  • Need to fix Jun 16, 2012

    By Bobbiesock
    Too frustrating because too many errors. When stuck at level because of unmatched letters, there is no work around to go to next level or to reset game back to lower level. I am addicted. Need them to fix the game. Had to delete app and reload starting over to get past level 69. Hope it works.
  • Problems... Jun 3, 2012

    By SKF28
    I love playing this game, but getting very annoyed. I have paid for the game and twice now after getting through level 20 or higher, it starts me over from the beginning, resetting my score and starting at level 1, very, very frustrating. It also asks me if i want to pay or skip. Please fix this.
  • Has potential Oct 28, 2012

    By cocobuttr
    This game is addictively fun, but has a number of drawbacks: There doesn't seem to be any way to get rid of the ads. There is only one play mode, against random opponents. I would prefer untimed solo play. Being able to play against specific friends would be nice, too. It looks like there are only three packs of words (?) The scoring doesn't make sense. Why do my opponents rack up huge scores compared to my tiny scores even when I am winning? What is with the "send a riddle" thing? Many of the words are repetitive. Still, it *is* fun, and with a little work, it could really be something.
  • It's ok - need to be able to play solo Feb 7, 2013

    By kkh11
    Like it a lot but wish you could opt out of playing against someone. It's makes it too stressful at times that I may want to relax and zone out on some word games. Please add an option for not playing against someone.
  • Scramble Words Jun 5, 2012

    By Seniornile
    Fun. Addictive. Has serious bugs in upper levels. Often can't make final word with remaining letters, yet it seems opponent can finish! Very frustrating. Enjoy game a lot, so hoping there will be an update to fix the problem. Meanwhile, stuck on Level 69...
  • Fun May 27, 2012

    By Jeanine2468
    Just started playing. Could only go up to level 5 for free. Then needed to do review to get more levels. Having the the letter blocks touch each other but are not part of the word is a bit confusing since I play scrabble.
  • Scramble Jun 15, 2012

    By Forbud2
    I have had 2 scramble word games that you cannot finish. I just finished a game with one 3 Letter word left with an o in the middle and a S & F. Can only try sof or fos - this has happened twice. The other time 2 words were left with no match. It only gets 1 star
  • Good for kids. Jul 1, 2012

    Stumbled across this trying to find a word scramble for my six year old. Even he could get some of these by chance. I could tell him what I thought the word should be and he would rearrange the letters for me also.

    Sometimes too much so. Gets frustrating at times. Not always enjoyable while you struggle but it is satisfying to complete. After you reach a higher level they make it impossible to win. Don't fall for it and buy clues!

    Purchased a couple of upgrades to this game only to have everything mysteriously disappear and leave me high and dry. No game site support available. I had to find their website and send in a request for help. Still haven't figured out what's up and about to give up. Not worth my time.
