    Location of buttons for hint and rocket Oct 20, 2021

    By Carole Thompson
    In my opinion as a right-handed person with pretty small fingers, the buttons to select hints and rocket which automatically take points away from you are too close to the circle with the letters to make the words from. Many many times I have lost points by very lightly accidentally touching those buttons.

    Glitches glitches and more glitches Aug 23, 2021

    By Ann
    I find this a relaxing game, EXCEPT the glitches do not stop. The ads are bad enough.. and - yes - they want us to pay to stop them, which is both a commonplace, and obnoxious business practice. But, at least take the money you guys are making on your darn ads and fix your app.

    If you don't pay for the game you'll go crazy with all the annoying and time wasting ads. They know that though... If you buy all the game stuff it will cost you a fortune... Unless you have money to burn, don't bother...

  • Old Version Better/Coin Issue Oct 22, 2020

    By Unsafe Means of Transfer
    I’ve played this game for a few years now and noticed a disappointing new feature with the coins. In order to use them now you must purchase them. This was not a requirement with the old version and makes me consider deleting the game daily as the use of the coins used to provide you with helpful features like; revealing one letter of your choice for a difficult word, etc. It’s a bit illogical to continue to show us coins that we’ve earned through finding additional letters or for reaching a certain level, yet we have no access to them unless we purchase them??? It feels like a design flaw as you play and really makes me wish I hadn’t updated to this newest version. Other than that I would have given 5 stars but it’s such a nuisance I have to grade much lower despite truly enjoying playing the game. Suggestion: Get rid of the option to pay for coins per player's choice if you decide to keep the paid “earned coins” version of this game as most people are never going to bother purchasing anyway it’s like having a commercial running in the upper right corner of your television screen while you’re watching your favorite TV show. It cheapens the look and feel of the game. It feels like the game creators are begging for money as opposed to a real game which would never have a running advert in the corner. Otherwise the game is perfect.

    Edit Nov 2021 used to love this game and play it for hours. But now it has become too busy, a chore that is no longer fun . There does not need to be some quest or contest going on every single day It's harder and harder to fill the Meters to collect butterflies or safari portraits. This new star thing where I'd you don't beat the clock you have to use your coins to keep your stars is just another nail in the coffin. Some quests are fun but there's too much going on every day .

    Found myself looking up some of the meaning of words around level 400. So like any game if you spend a little you get. But with this game no time limit no need to spend unless you get caught up with the tournaments. Oh they insist you rate them so heres your 5 stars sir. Oh gotta pay to remove ads. That should take away 4 stars. But if im gonna try to enjoy a better game just join em. Good Luck

  • Great way to chill if you can handle it’s foibles Nov 8, 2021

    By DGBAuthor
    I find this an almost addicting daily indulgence. I’ve been playing this for well over a year and when dealing with their standard puzzles, the game can be quite entertaining. Where it falls down is with its vocabulary and it’s other options, like tournaments and daily puzzles. By far the most frustrating is the Daily Puzzle, in which earn points for guessing the correct word, guess them correctly and you’ll earn up to 3 points for one of the four challenges which in turn rewards you with stars for your account. However, there is neither rhyme nor reason to their method. Say you need a 3-letter word with “O” in the middle. With your letter selections it could be NOT, TON, LOT, HOT or TOY. Guess them in the wrong order and your chance of earning all 3 stars that round may be lost. I don’t know why they don’t put the words in alphabetical order. Next is vocabulary. I can’t say how many times I’ve tried a word and it’s not accepted (example: EWER or TOM.) Then there are the words like AAH and AHA or non-words like LITE. Finally there’s the tournaments (where one minute you’re rated #5, you’ll finish a game and drop to 20. Oh, and you better have a cell or network connection, otherwise you’ll play through a round of 16 games and get credit for none of them.

    Great time consumer, but... My wife and I love playing the weekends tournaments in our team. We took 1st place this weekend! But it seems a little unfair that the players who didn't participate in the tourney at all still get a cut of the prize. In all fairness, only those who play in the tournaments should be rewarded. If that changes, I'll easily give a 5 star rating!

    I like the app but don't like the ads. My solution is to simply not watch the ads. I spend thirty seconds resting my eyes with every ad. I play the tournaments but it keeps giving the same puzzles over and over again. Need some variety!

    I paid a while ago to remove all the ads, I've been enjoying the game ever since, however, the most recent update added a annoying video ad offer which keeps popping up and can't be removed. This is unacceptable after purchasing the game to remove ads.
  • Can’t Sync Between Devices Jan 25, 2020

    By Courtney4367732
    The concept of the game is easy enough... and if you have a decent vocabulary, the game itself is too easy. I’m nearly to level 300 and have barely had to pause to think about it. Definitely not challenging so far. My biggest issue is I can’t sync between my phone and iPad. I contacted customer support and was initially pleased by the quick response. Unfortunately, they keep forwarding my responses to another person, so I’ve spoken to 4 different people even though person 2 explained they’d just do a manual reset or something that never happened. Person 4 goes “Are you trying to sync them to the same FB account?” What??? Why would I be confused about it not going to the correct level if it wasn’t even the same account I was syncing them to?? I finally said never mind because no one from their support team has helped me over the past week and apparently they can’t bother to even read what my complaint was in the first place. Yes, they answer the same day, but every day it’s a new person and you’ll be explaining your problem over and over! And it’s emails! They can’t communicate? So all in all, pretty easy game and decent time killer... just can’t get the game to sync between my phone and iPad. 2 stars because the last two emails I got from them are utterly ridiculous. I paid to remove ads and regret the fact their company got my few dollars.
  • Long time player disappointed Nov 15, 2021

    By Winddreamer22
    Been playing casually for years. Only recently begun to take an interest in the tourney feature. The team feature is fun playing with other players. And hearing their gripes about the game. About how some players seem to be under testing with new game features. The latest was Star Rush. Which I don’t really see the point of with getting bonus points if you complete a level within 3 mins. I think most players can complete a level within that period. So no real change from the regular play. Unless you take your time and those players are at a disadvantage. Or something comes up and you forget to close out of your screen. So lose bonus points accrued unless you pay coins to not lose them. Days when there is not a tourney you have theme feature to collect portraits. For instance was the ‘Trick or Treat’ theme. Where you collect portraits with a Halloween theme. And what I heard from other players, it’s nearly impossible to obtain all the portrait from the set. The only feature I’m able to complete a collection are the butterflies but most regular players can complete collections. And really the only I was able to complete. I’ve yet to complete any portrait sets. I know players with millions in brilliance and they haven’t competed a set. So they doesn’t bode well for players like me. I still play but mostly for the tourneys and the team I joined.
  • Beware of missing features! Aug 7, 2020

    By Sharibaby714
    The developers of his app give some features (adventure game within the game for example) to some users, but not all. They also give "random mid-week tournaments" to some, not all; however, in my team of fifty players, we found that the same people got the tournament week after week, so it's not incredibly random. If your mates get all the extra tourneys, they get to advance through the game at a much faster rate with 'crowns' that can only be obtained in the tourney play - and THAT'S why it's not fair to others of us. Bottom line, if you don't mind others being given blatant unfair advantages by the game, you'll have fun. And contacting them to ask why results in a 'sorry, not sorry' reply. One star given for my inferior game experience caused entirely by the app developers themselves. Others bestowed with the bonus features will probably rate higher. *My reply to Developer: then your TEST shouldn't allow people to unfairly advance faster in the game. If you win your individual tourney, you are eligible for max 50 crowns/wk. Extra TEST tourney, gives access to 25 extra/wk. UNFAIR GAME ADVANCEMENT!!!! Then take the test crowns away. Test all you want and hallelujah for you, but you should not let people advance in your game and others do not have equal access. I don't expect to get 50 crowns per week unless I EARN them, but I don't expect others to have access to 100 game advancing crowns per month, when I do not!

    Overall the game isn't bad. Ads can be deleted for a small price just like most games. I really can't stand being locked into playing tournaments and different themes. I decide what I want to play not what it decides that I should be doing! Was fun...not anymore. Too many other similar games out there to waste my time with this one.
  • It’s okay... Jan 1, 2019

    By Foggyhat
    It is an okay app so far. Starts off WAY to easy, but I guess that’s probably so that anyone can play, even young kids. It has far too many 3 letter words for my liking. It probably gets harder eventually, but till that point, it is a bit boring for me. I have two other qualms. The first is that there are legal words that the game doesn’t accept. If you do come up with a word that was not chosen for the crossword, it counts as a “bonus word” (which adds to your total to be able to later use for hints, which is a good idea). However, there are valid words that the game doesn’t accept. I can’t remember all of them right now, but some are “alee” and “luged”. They accepted “luge” just fine, so I have no idea why the past tense in “luged” would be an issue. The other main issue that annoys me is the frequency of the ads. I’ve played other games that have ads before, and I understand that’s how free games supplement their income in order to give us the content in the game. However, the frequency of the ads is the issue in this game. By far the most frequent ads I’ve ever seen. Sometimes have to deal with an ad every two minutes or less, if I finish the crossword quickly, which is ridiculous. At least you can X out of the ads fairly quickly. Still, having ads that often is annoying.

    Fun game, but if you rate it anything less than 5 stars, you are taken instantly to a 'support chat', which is really just a bot that will forward your message to a supposed support team. Oh, and theres long, unskippable ads between each level that has a fake skip or x button thats only there to trick you into clicking on it.

  • Elegant and fun but could stand to be more rewarding Sep 20, 2017

    By Staticandbanal
    Very lovely uncluttered layouts and short puzzle times make this a great app for de-stressing and passing time on short bus rides, standing in line, etc. My kids also love it and will beg to "help" me find words if they catch me playing it. A few critiques: you have to do seemingly endless easy puzzles before getting to any remotely challenging ones; I wish they increased the difficulty sooner, maybe based on your solve time. Also not sure what the "brilliance" is about, and there's nothing to use the coins for either. I finished with over 3700 coins, but when I press "shop" the only option is to buy even MORE coins using real money. It's also kind of annoying that it won't accept certain real words for no apparent reason (e.g. girt, purl, cote, hod, coir, trice, creel, cant... and the list goes on). Yet it DOES use a bunch of slang words like blog, pic, toon, etc. What dictionary are they using?! Overall an excellent app, I'll probably go back and redo the upper levels from time to time (fortunately it unsolves them again after you finish).
  • Photos and butterflies are too long May 20, 2021

    By GigiMSN21
    I really like this app. I like that there is a dictionary so if one in unfamiliar with a word they can click a button to read definition. I’m not digging how it seems in challenges words tend to be alphabetical. I’m not happy with being forced into a tournament last week. I’m also not happy with the “photos” that in order to reach 100% it’s taking so long to get rest of category. I played last week a lot only because I was riding in a car traveling. My life does not permit to sit and play for hours on end. I only have one photo left to complete a category but after playing for several hours I’ve not gotten anything but repeat photos. I don’t have the whole photo time to play to get one final photo. The Butterfly thing I will never have the time to play to fill the entire goal. It’s not attainable for people with a life outside of game. How do people reach 6000 or higher in one weekend without having a robotic arm? I will continue solving the puzzles but

    I love WordScapes but I have some issues, that I would you guys can fix in the next update. I play on an IPad and a IPhone. I have no problems on my IPhone, but instead my IPad. When I got on WordScapes on my IPad, my screen freezes and powers off, but that only happens on WordScapes. I tried almost everything I could think of, such as turning off and on, deleting the app, and restarting my IPad. It still does this problem. My friend plays on her IPad as well, and she doesn’t have a problem with it at all. Please fix this, I’m giving it a 5 star review because I love this game, when I’m on my iPhone, but please fix this problem for the next update, and please decrease the number of ads per minute. Oh and one more thing.... The game board can’t understand some English words that are English, and it’s really frustrating, and can you please fix some bugs and glitches for the next update? Thank you so much, and please text me back if you guys can! Thanks a lot! -

    Many words are overused for example you see words were used in multiple puzzles and far too many words that are good words- words that are not overused, are not included in the puzzles. Beautiful backgrounds and a very relaxing game. Kids should not be worse or cost 100 points but it takes 100 extra words not included the crosswords to come up with that many. To clarify what has to come back with 100 words that are not included in the puzzles just to be able to get want to hint at what hit is only one letter at a word either the entire ward that proportion is way off. Yes the same words are used over and over and over again that will be the reason that I stop playing this game. There are billions of words at the English language to use the same words over and over again completely deplete the purpose of the game. But it is a great relaxing way to enjoy a Phone game at all so I do find it addictive. It only needs slight revision. With the game finally finished is there a grand prize? it’s not clear on that.

  • Fun and intriguing…if you have some spare dollars Nov 5, 2021

    By calwyn408
    I really like this game, and even though I’ve only had it for a few days I can’t stop playing it. As someone with ADHD this is a really good focus her, and gets my brain working. There have been some words that I didn’t know where words, and there’s also a lot of things that should be counted as words like the names of countries, so that is a bit annoying. Plus you earn coins by completing the daily puzzles and crossword’s, but you can’t use those coins to buy things in the store that will help you out. You can use them to buy a helper thing when you are playing the game, but if you save up a lot of them you just have to do that rather than using them to buy spelling bees or some thing.I also don’t like that every time you complete a level, 25 coins go into a piggy bank that you then have to spend $1.99 on to get the coins when you reach the 1440 Mark. I feel like this game won’t be very fun if you aren’t willing to spend a few dollars, which is why I gave it four stars instead of five. But overall it’s a fun game that doesn’t get old and also challenges you to think.
  • Missed Credits on Daily Challenges May 28, 2019

    By Lauraaapieee
    I haven’t seen any other reviews on this so I’m not sure if I’m one of a few that has this problem. I love this game but the problem is with the daily challenges. I’ve played this game for months (possibly a couple years) and always, always do the daily challenges. It’s a ritual I do while eating breakfast. For every so many days you complete, you can get coins and it goes up in increments so that you should (on the months that have 31 days) be able to get the big prize of 500 coins. The problem is there are usually about 2 or 3 days out of the month that it doesn’t give me credit for that therefore insuring I will not get the 500 coins. It always happens!!! It goes to the next screen after I complete the challenge and goes through the sounds and motions but my number/count doesn’t go up one. Super annoying and it’s almost like it does it on purpose so that no one can get the 500 coins so we will be forced to pay for hints since they cost an exorbitant amount to begin with and always run out of money. It’s been bothering me for months so just wanted to complain.

    It’s a great word game to play, between this and Ruzzle (my favorite), I think the game is pretty fun. I enjoy learning new words and expanding my vocabulary so this helps. The game allows you to guess words without a limit or consequence no matter how many incorrect tries. It also has a built in dictionary so you can look up the definitions of any of the words you find. Cons: You don’t rack up many coins, so you have to be good at guessing or pay for more coins. The hints are so expensive for a game that doesn’t allow you to rake up many coins per round. To earn coins you have to play 16 round to get at most 75 coins. Each round you can earn coins by guessing words that aren’t in the puzzle using the letters given. You get one coin per word; ripoff. I guess it’s a money thing. The hints cost 100, 200, and 300 coins so be mindful of how often you ask for hints, unless you don’t mind buying coins. Some words that are real words, aren’t recognized by the system. Some words you’ve probably never heard of, are definitely a part of the game. So with all that being said, I recommend the game, but it could be better.

    Excellent and somewhat beneficial time killer. There are a few minor changes I would like, especially the ability to make the tiles more visible against some backgrounds. Sometimes it can be very hard on the eyes.
  • Love it! Just one little thing Jan 18, 2020

    By #PUGSrock
    I love Wordscapes it is a great game. I play it for almost a while everyday. I like that there’s wide verities of hints like bees, rockets, normal hints, shuffle, and targets. I have heard some complaints about the ads but I disagree they are not interrupting the game because they only come after a round. I also enjoy getting a prize everyday weather it is a free hint or just coins, it is a great feature. I love that there’s a dictionary space because when I write,I haves wide selection of words to choose from. But there is two little problems. One: when you start the daily puzzle but don’t Finnish it you can’t start the next day. I know that the point of the daily puzzle is to do a new puzzle everyday but maybe you could make a “Resume” button or a “Start a new one” Two: there is a space for ads on the bottom of the word bank, so if my hand slips it brings me right to the App Store. I know that Wordscapes themselves don’t provide the ads but they can at least move the bar. Aside from those problems Wordscapes is a great game, thanks for reading. And a wonderful game!
  • Fun little game to help kill time, but one flaw Apr 10, 2020

    By mr_coldcutts
    I’ve been playing this game for a couple months now. It’s a fun way to kill time and even exercise your brain a bit. I do like that it has a feature that lets you easily look up the definition of words that you might not recognize, so it has helped me expand my vocabulary a bit. This also, however, exposes one of the flaws of the game. The one frustrating thing about this game is with what words it will and will not recognize. This fault is not so much with the game itself, but with the dictionary source it uses. It allows a few slang and abbreviated words that I wouldn’t have thought to use. It even allows for some slightly more scientific terms but not others. Most notably, it doesn’t allow for certain words that connote a more recent understanding and sensitivity to LGBTQ populations. Once again, I point this not a flaw of the actual coding, but rather the dictionary base that it uses. Finally, the amount of ads within the game is a bit annoying, but such if the case fit just about any freemium game.
  • Good but adds show better please respond to this Mar 8, 2019

    By S.Couzens
    This is a very nice game with MANY ups and few downs. Though that is why I’m writing this, because of the downs. So first, I don’t see why there is not an easier way to get money besides finding extra words, which tray don’t give you very much money. A second reason I’m writing this is because in the adds it kinda says in different words that this game is a stress reliever, but of course, again, in different words. That’s the problem because sometimes you spend FOREVER trying to figure out JUST ONE word and have no money for a hint which can make you stressed. The third and final flaw to the game is how the adds say how this game makes you smarter but I really don’t see how it does that. So basically, in all, this is a fun game that I play slightly more than a lot of my others and I think it’s good for all ages!(Well, not ages 5 and under because they are kinda stupid and don’t know very many words lol😏)Thank you for this wonderful experience and I hope you make a few improvements. -Sam

    I really think this game is addictive. It’s a great game but not the best. Honestly I like doing these crossword puzzle stuff. I don’t want to be rude but, there are some bad things about this game. One, too many bonus words. I think it makes the game more challenging because I would have to make a new word. I’m 11 and I don’t know every word in the world! I am on at least level 100. Mostly, when I find a simple word it’s a bonus word! I am not the best at finding new words. Sometimes there are words that I have to find which are words that I don’t know the meaning to. I even have to get my mom to do some of the levels for me! I feel like I am too old for that. All the words I know are just stupid bonus words! Two, when I watch an ad to get more coins, it advertises the same game! It keeps advertising Toon Blast! I feel like I am too old for that game! Please stop advertising Toon Blast all the time. I’m sure there are other great addictive games you can advertise. To be honest, I can get addicted to this game. Overall, great game. 🙂

    Location of buttons for hint and rocket Oct 20, 2021

    By Carole Thompson
    In my opinion as a right-handed person with pretty small fingers, the buttons to select hints and rocket which automatically take points away from you are too close to the circle with the letters to make the words from. Many many times I have lost points by very lightly accidentally touching those buttons.
  • Old Version Better/Coin Issue Oct 22, 2020

    By Unsafe Means of Transfer
    I’ve played this game for a few years now and noticed a disappointing new feature with the coins. In order to use them now you must purchase them. This was not a requirement with the old version and makes me consider deleting the game daily as the use of the coins used to provide you with helpful features like; revealing one letter of your choice for a difficult word, etc. It’s a bit illogical to continue to show us coins that we’ve earned through finding additional letters or for reaching a certain level, yet we have no access to them unless we purchase them??? It feels like a design flaw as you play and really makes me wish I hadn’t updated to this newest version. Other than that I would have given 5 stars but it’s such a nuisance I have to grade much lower despite truly enjoying playing the game. Suggestion: Get rid of the option to pay for coins per player's choice if you decide to keep the paid “earned coins” version of this game as most people are never going to bother purchasing anyway it’s like having a commercial running in the upper right corner of your television screen while you’re watching your favorite TV show. It cheapens the look and feel of the game. It feels like the game creators are begging for money as opposed to a real game which would never have a running advert in the corner. Otherwise the game is perfect.

    Edit Nov 2021 used to love this game and play it for hours. But now it has become too busy, a chore that is no longer fun . There does not need to be some quest or contest going on every single day It's harder and harder to fill the Meters to collect butterflies or safari portraits. This new star thing where I'd you don't beat the clock you have to use your coins to keep your stars is just another nail in the coffin. Some quests are fun but there's too much going on every day .
  • Great way to chill if you can handle it’s foibles Nov 8, 2021

    By DGBAuthor
    I find this an almost addicting daily indulgence. I’ve been playing this for well over a year and when dealing with their standard puzzles, the game can be quite entertaining. Where it falls down is with its vocabulary and it’s other options, like tournaments and daily puzzles. By far the most frustrating is the Daily Puzzle, in which earn points for guessing the correct word, guess them correctly and you’ll earn up to 3 points for one of the four challenges which in turn rewards you with stars for your account. However, there is neither rhyme nor reason to their method. Say you need a 3-letter word with “O” in the middle. With your letter selections it could be NOT, TON, LOT, HOT or TOY. Guess them in the wrong order and your chance of earning all 3 stars that round may be lost. I don’t know why they don’t put the words in alphabetical order. Next is vocabulary. I can’t say how many times I’ve tried a word and it’s not accepted (example: EWER or TOM.) Then there are the words like AAH and AHA or non-words like LITE. Finally there’s the tournaments (where one minute you’re rated #5, you’ll finish a game and drop to 20. Oh, and you better have a cell or network connection, otherwise you’ll play through a round of 16 games and get credit for none of them.
  • Weekend Tournament Concerns Sep 20, 2021

    By Orange 59
    I’m a team leader on a team that has played several months in tournaments. I have played this word game for 18 months. Of late in the Tournament there are teams that are getting hard to believe high scores. This leaves me to believe we may have some bits in the system that are making this unfair for us human players. These teams need to be automatically disqualified from playing in these tournaments. Our team is feeling like why should we play if there is so much rampant cheating by other teams. I also think it would be wise to add incentives and rewarding those who have reached high levels in this game. Perhaps giving 100 coins for each 16 games you complete. They definitely become more challenging as you go up higher in levels. The game is fun snd I have made many new friends in my team. I’m always amazed at the number of legitimate words that are not accepted in puzzles or as bonus words. I’m also a little baffled at the editing of communications between team members. There are certain words that are starred out and those words are not offensive or slang words. Thank you for all you do and I hope all of these issues can be resolved or at least addressed so that all can enjoy this game!!
  • Misleading Oct 31, 2019

    By Paultrgeist
    So, in this post-fact world the advert says you’ll learn to read faster and improve your vocabulary. I haven’t seen any evidence that spelling words from a collection of letters helps one read faster. Logic tells me it doesn’t. Perhaps they could cite some studies. My bigger issue is that it’ll improve my vocabulary. That’s hogwash. Central to ALL vocabulary instruction, starting in kindergarten, is definitions. This game does nothing to promote improvement in my usage of the words contained in it. Moreover, the game is all about building words from letters THAT YOU ALREADY KNOW. How does recalling words I’ve seen and used many times before, then provide no definition or context in which said word is used, help my vocabulary skills? I’ve waisted too much time playing this thing, hoping that I’d eventually get to the “lexicon” level which would grant me the amazing fluency and word knowledge advertised. But alas, the game doesn’t appear to have that...it’s basically Boggle that can be played at a banana slug pace. This would be a four star review if they’d at least provide definitions (maybe they do with the paid upgrades?) and actually allow me to practice speed reading. Throw in the parts of speech and you’d have five star reviews all day long.
  • Fun game, loads of potential, but flawed Aug 31, 2021

    By Ladyhusker814
    Can the developers NOT creat a way to make it simpler to uninstall the app from one device in order to install it on a new device (phone to phone or phone to tablet), and not lose progress? Yes I log in with Facebook, and no my coins, brilliance, etc., do not transfer when I log into FB on my new device. It would be much more cost efficient in the long run if your own tech support is not spending all their time responding to messages about getting their progress manually restored. On that note, do a screenshot of all your progress immediately before doing any uninstall/reinstall! Developers, while this is improving, some background photo/letter box color combinations are awful! The white boxes blur with white clouds. Think bright colors - pinks, orange, red, etc band not the same color as the background (dark purple on a night sky is no bueno). Last - option to set a team leader and one or two co-leads. If a leader goes AWOL, the team is stuck for the most part, and has to go through an elaborate myriad of madness to open a new team, communicate with remaining teammates how to find that new team, hoping everyone gets the message, and finds the new spot. Too ridiculous!
  • Umm...? Somethings not safe here... Nov 8, 2019

    By Maria (please consider)
    This game is great!!!! I love it! It would totally be a 10/10 but... Something just is not quite right, if I need coins for a hint... and I don’t have any, I have to pay real money for the coins right? Makes TOTAL sense! But if you decide... “nah I’m not spending my money” the you tap the button to get out of the thingy because you don’t REALLY need coins blah blah blah! Anyway so the a thing pops up every time (just how the game works) and it list three was you can get more coins for FREE!!!!! Well... this is ware the UNSAFE business happens... the 3 ways you can get coins for free that are listed is, 1. Video (totally safe that’s no big deal) 2. Offers (just more videos, or downloading games witch is totally fine) And 3. surveys!!!!! DO NOT TAKE THE SURVEY!!!! It asked me for my age, name, and some other personal info!!! I stoped immediately and made sure it did not go through. Now I’m not saying don’t buy the game!!! It’s a GREAT game!!! The survey is the only bad thing about it. I’m just saying... it might not be bad... but I personally don’t trust that kinda stuff. Anyway this is a amazing game and I can’t stop playing!!! Thank you to anybody that has actually bothered to read this 😂😂😂

    It's a fun game to pass the time and engages in critical thinking. Unfortunately, the piggy bank feature is ridiculous. Even if I were to pay for the full version of game, my coins would be stuck in that bank, making no progress until I pay for the price of the piggy bank. How greedy can this company get?
  • It’s Okay… Jul 25, 2021

    By Tayislit
    So, let’s start with the good. Wordscapes is a fun way to challenge your brain and learn new words. Also, you can guess wrong and/or incorrect words all the time. But, for me, that’s where the positives end. I know lots of people say this, but I’m going to it again. The game uses words over and over and over again. I can’t tell you how many time I’ve gotten the word “emu” in this game. This doesn’t add to my vocabulary, if I have seen it over and over again. In the game, the “hints” are 100 coins, and bull’s-eyes are 200 COINS!? Like, for ONE letter it cost the same amount of TWO letters? You might as well save up for the “rocket” option at this point. My other complaint is the chat systems of the teams. I was once on a team and inappropriate things were said, and SEVERAL people reported the messages and had them removed, yet that person was never kicked or removed from the team? Like, they should be removed at the FIRST report, wether the team leader reported them or not. TLTR: Great idea, but the repeated words, having to spend to many coins on hint, bull’s-eyes, rockets, and the chat systems, it just not okay. Overall, a game I would not recommend. 😐

  • Can’t Sync Between Devices Jan 25, 2020

    By Courtney4367732
    The concept of the game is easy enough... and if you have a decent vocabulary, the game itself is too easy. I’m nearly to level 300 and have barely had to pause to think about it. Definitely not challenging so far. My biggest issue is I can’t sync between my phone and iPad. I contacted customer support and was initially pleased by the quick response. Unfortunately, they keep forwarding my responses to another person, so I’ve spoken to 4 different people even though person 2 explained they’d just do a manual reset or something that never happened. Person 4 goes “Are you trying to sync them to the same FB account?” What??? Why would I be confused about it not going to the correct level if it wasn’t even the same account I was syncing them to?? I finally said never mind because no one from their support team has helped me over the past week and apparently they can’t bother to even read what my complaint was in the first place. Yes, they answer the same day, but every day it’s a new person and you’ll be explaining your problem over and over! And it’s emails! They can’t communicate? So all in all, pretty easy game and decent time killer... just can’t get the game to sync between my phone and iPad. 2 stars because the last two emails I got from them are utterly ridiculous. I paid to remove ads and regret the fact their company got my few dollars.
  • Long time player disappointed Nov 15, 2021

    By Winddreamer22
    Been playing casually for years. Only recently begun to take an interest in the tourney feature. The team feature is fun playing with other players. And hearing their gripes about the game. About how some players seem to be under testing with new game features. The latest was Star Rush. Which I don’t really see the point of with getting bonus points if you complete a level within 3 mins. I think most players can complete a level within that period. So no real change from the regular play. Unless you take your time and those players are at a disadvantage. Or something comes up and you forget to close out of your screen. So lose bonus points accrued unless you pay coins to not lose them. Days when there is not a tourney you have theme feature to collect portraits. For instance was the ‘Trick or Treat’ theme. Where you collect portraits with a Halloween theme. And what I heard from other players, it’s nearly impossible to obtain all the portrait from the set. The only feature I’m able to complete a collection are the butterflies but most regular players can complete collections. And really the only I was able to complete. I’ve yet to complete any portrait sets. I know players with millions in brilliance and they haven’t competed a set. So they doesn’t bode well for players like me. I still play but mostly for the tourneys and the team I joined.
  • It’s okay... Jan 1, 2019

    By Foggyhat
    It is an okay app so far. Starts off WAY to easy, but I guess that’s probably so that anyone can play, even young kids. It has far too many 3 letter words for my liking. It probably gets harder eventually, but till that point, it is a bit boring for me. I have two other qualms. The first is that there are legal words that the game doesn’t accept. If you do come up with a word that was not chosen for the crossword, it counts as a “bonus word” (which adds to your total to be able to later use for hints, which is a good idea). However, there are valid words that the game doesn’t accept. I can’t remember all of them right now, but some are “alee” and “luged”. They accepted “luge” just fine, so I have no idea why the past tense in “luged” would be an issue. The other main issue that annoys me is the frequency of the ads. I’ve played other games that have ads before, and I understand that’s how free games supplement their income in order to give us the content in the game. However, the frequency of the ads is the issue in this game. By far the most frequent ads I’ve ever seen. Sometimes have to deal with an ad every two minutes or less, if I finish the crossword quickly, which is ridiculous. At least you can X out of the ads fairly quickly. Still, having ads that often is annoying.

  • The Rampant Cheating in Tournament Needs to End Jan 14, 2021

    By ChristianL1979
    Wordscapes is a fun well-designed game aside from one thing. The cheating in tournaments. I don’t care if you have an IQ of 180 the likelihood of finishing each level in 10 seconds flat and having 20x the amount of stars than 2nd place makes you m Not even want to try. There is such an easy solution to this that in over 2 years no one has implemented and it’s frankly embarrassing that for as good as the game is and the clever the design that no one has come up with yet continuing to update it. When a tournament begins in the current form of the game your tourney begins on the level you left off on. The problem with this? Every level is on a website that gives you all the answers. Why don’t you design several thousand “tournament only” levels and never reuse them again. If they cheaters can’t just sit on the answer site mindlessly completing 10 levels in the same time it take people who do it right what is the point. Yes I’m so sure these people aren’t cheating, they play 24/7 for 48 hours and never lose any sharpness whatsover. If you want to hold a fair and funny tournament the cheaters need to be chopped off at the knees and have all their acquisitions taken away. They didn’t earn them.

    I'm done. Shutting down wifi before starting the application helps with the ads. I had thousands of coins and apparently my screen was close or in contact with someone and I was down to 400 coins. No control, no history, no previous saves. Just gone. Using scrabble words helps find combinations without wasting money. The too, try to advertise too much. Shut down the game, go to scrabble word find after turning on wifi, enter your letters and shut down wifi as soon as you get answers.
  • Tournaments are a joke Oct 13, 2019

    By McHellarose
    I love this game and play regularly and I had doubts when I read some reviews that said that the tournaments were mainly done by bots, but now I have clearly seen it first hand and those reviews are right!!! I decided to take about a 15-20 minute break from it to go to the store and relax my eyes. When I went back on to play, 2 people had passed me and one of them suddenly had over 2300 points. In the 15-20 minutes I was away from it, someone who wasn’t even in the top ten of players had passed us all with that many points. Now I play this game a lot and I would like to think I am pretty good, but this is complete crap and takes all of the competitive fun out of the game! I even paid to stop the ads and there is no way I could put up 2000 points in 15 minutes. I will not ever spend another dime on this game and feel this is cheating and just downright cheap to do to people that really want to compete and have fun. Not to mention that when you get to higher levels it becomes repetitive. I have done some of the same puzzles 4 times. Did they run out of words?!? Maybe the bots could come up with some to help the developers out! Complete joke competing in the tournaments... don’t even waste your time!

  • Beware of missing features! Aug 7, 2020

    By Sharibaby714
    The developers of his app give some features (adventure game within the game for example) to some users, but not all. They also give "random mid-week tournaments" to some, not all; however, in my team of fifty players, we found that the same people got the tournament week after week, so it's not incredibly random. If your mates get all the extra tourneys, they get to advance through the game at a much faster rate with 'crowns' that can only be obtained in the tourney play - and THAT'S why it's not fair to others of us. Bottom line, if you don't mind others being given blatant unfair advantages by the game, you'll have fun. And contacting them to ask why results in a 'sorry, not sorry' reply. One star given for my inferior game experience caused entirely by the app developers themselves. Others bestowed with the bonus features will probably rate higher. *My reply to Developer: then your TEST shouldn't allow people to unfairly advance faster in the game. If you win your individual tourney, you are eligible for max 50 crowns/wk. Extra TEST tourney, gives access to 25 extra/wk. UNFAIR GAME ADVANCEMENT!!!! Then take the test crowns away. Test all you want and hallelujah for you, but you should not let people advance in your game and others do not have equal access. I don't expect to get 50 crowns per week unless I EARN them, but I don't expect others to have access to 100 game advancing crowns per month, when I do not!

  • Fun game Oct 28, 2018

    By Passnthru
    Great game challenging, fun and addictive. I would give it more stars but feel it’s not evenly played. My wife has been playing for months and her hints are 50 coins, I’ve been playing a couple months and enjoy the game but the hints on mine are 100 coins,the target hints 200 and rocket blast 300 totally bogus pricing. Before you say she’s at higher score(she is) I have a daughter, granddaughter and soninlaw that all signed up after I did and 2 of them at my recommendation and wait for it...... their hints are 50,100,150 coins. I’m not the only one this has happened to in the support section there are other complaints of the same thing. I sent an email to them with questions about this and I will say they answered rather quickly but with a crazy response of “we’re trying different pricing to see which we decide on.” What I got out of the answer was we think we can gouge some folks on the pricing so when they buy coins they get less benefit for the money they pay. I started with 2 stars but as I wrote this I down graded it go 1. Get your act together and I’ll revisit this review!!!!! Have talked to them thru emails 3 different times and each time it’s the same, ”we’re trying different pricing to see where it levels out, hmmm I wonder if they’ll refund the folks that bought hints and removed ads at the higher prices when they level out, hmmm NOT!!!!!

    This game used to be fun to play but they added a new advertisement that covers the letters. When the ad pops up you can't use certain letters because the ad covers the letters. I've complained about the issue and no change has been made. What good are the ads if you don't have anyone to look at them because they made the game unplayable. I can send a screenshot if somebody wants to fix the issue if not I will try to find a different version where the developer makes a game that can be played.

  • GREEDY UPDATE Jul 7, 2020

    By AmyHasHope
    This is my favorite game and I spend hours playing. Via my friends in the tourney I recently learned the newest update TOOK OUT many words, real words, mind you, that had been rightfully added to an expanded dictionary several months ago. The reason: A money grab. Less bonus words equal less coins earned equals more people have to buy coins via the recently brought back “piggy bank”. I have this game on two devices, and I have paid for them both. I have not had to buy hints, as I didn’t need them. Then they introduced the tournaments where I use them frequently. Once I run through the coins I have accumulated, I WILL need to buy hints, thus giving the game some more revenue. That will likely be the case for many, many players! But instead they went for the easy money, and ticked off the most loyal, adoring players in the process. I'm fortunate I was warned NOT to update, but many people I care about had auto updates "on". Wordscapes, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more loyal player than me. But this new update is beyond the pale. It is "shameful", as one reviewer wrote. Kindly put the expanded dictionary back where it belongs, and KEEP the players that have supported you for a very long time, because I don’t know if they’ll stick around without you doing so.
