Wordle! for Negative User Reviews

Just don’tI have never seen an app with more ads than this one. It really almost borderlines harassment! I get they need to make money but… if you get a word wrong there is an ad to be watched, if you get a word right there is an ad as a thank you, if you are on a good streak we will be sure to interrupt it by making you watch an ad, if you start a new game then watch an ad first just to get u on the mood… As you can see there is little chance to enjoy the game so I would definitely be looking for a similar one. I’m about to delete it in frustration.Version: 1.11.0

Ads and EnglishBesides the fact that there are too many ads, the English in this game is very americanised I live in New Zealand and it can be quite hard trying to guess not only the right word but the right spelling of the word. Would be a great game otherwise.Version: 1.11.2

Please allow more time to view a finished boardOnce you click the fast forward button to reveal the answer - you get maybe a second to see the answer and the whole screen. Please make it so you can view it for longer and maybe click a button saying “next” - this is a great feature of the times wordle. You can refer back to your puzzle board for the whole day.Version: 1.12.2

Paid but still shows adsPaid $9.99 to remove ads but they still appear at the annoying rate - far worse than other aps.Version: 1.14.3

Ridiculous amount of adsI mean I get that’s how you make your money, but they pop up every single go and sometimes multiple times..Version: 1.6.0

Frustrating app, fun gameStarted playing Wordle for the first time this week. Downloaded the app, no tutorial or explanation of the rules pops up your first time. Went online and found the rules - then started playing. This app has annoying bugs that make it much less fun to play. I don’t know how many times I’ve been unable to even start games (because the keyboard doesn’t work; I type letters and nothing happens) or I have correctly guessed the word, but it doesn’t take me to the next one (I have to guess it again, then it acts like this guess counts and moves me forward.) I’ve also run into the issue of guessing the word correctly on the last row, only to have it act like I missed the word and start my streak over at zero. The ads are extremely annoying, unskippable, even when you do get an X to close them they either pretend you didn’t hit them or they take you to the App Store anyway like 5 times. I’d probably “buy” the game if it worked properly, but honestly I refuse to give money to app developers who build apps like this (that don’t work AND are unenjoyable due to the aggressive and constant ads.) Deleted the app already..Version: 1.14.2

This Enrages Me - Another Copycat AppI downloaded this a couple weeks ago when Wordle (where you guess a word in 6 tries) got popular. Deleted once I saw it was a completely different app and the Wordle I was looking for was a website lol. I didn’t care about this app until today when I got an app for something that looked exactly like Wordle, but with a different font. I realized this app just added a feature called “6 guesses” that’s just hopping onto the trend and exploiting the fact that the app and the popular game happen to have to the same name. Someone put actual work into Wordle and now these app developers are straight up copying them! And the app store is just letting them. Ugh. UPDATE: I redownloaded the app and noticed the “6 Guesses” is now the “Classic” mode. CLASSIC. This game originally has you make as many words as you can with the letters given: now the original purpose is called “Word Fever” and they’re pretending like they’ve ALWAYS been Wordle, the 5-letter word guessing app. UGH..Version: 1.9.1

Good game ruined by adsExcellent word search game, fun to play with different variants and options to keep it interesting. The adds are hell though, even after PAYING for the ‘ad free’ version. The ads on the free game are excruciating, but fair enough, it’s the free version. Putting ads in a game after I’ve paid specifically to remove them that, is a dishonest bait and switch tactic. It will give you the option to watch an ad for in game rewards, but if you don’t want to, you have to sit and wait until it gives you the choice to move on. I could almost forgive that, but there are also still mandatory 30 second ads to play the ‘daily puzzle’ (reminiscent of the REAL Wordle that this app is impersonating). This one could’ve been the better version, but it’s been ruined by dishonest business tactics. I will be asking for a refund..Version: 1.14.0

The number of ads are insane.A friend of mine told me to try this really cool game that is low commitment, single word a day. I installed the game, started the game up and played a round. Ad pops up. At this point I started having a sinking feeling in my stomach. As expected, after every round there's an ad. The ads are super irritating as well. Pressing the x button to close the ad opens up the software it's trying to sell instead. How annoying! At this point I was like F this. Im going back to geometry dash..Version: 1.6.0

Ads in new update are incredibly annoyingI like some of the things you did in the new update. Shuffling letters is good, and it’s better with bigger letters. I don’t like how you now can’t undo a letter by clicking on it… you have to reset the whole word if you get any letters wrong, which makes it harder to get words in on time if you make a simple letter mistake. And I HATE how many ads there are now. I get you need ads for money, but seriously, why does it have to be after every go? I reset the app every time an add comes up anyway, I never watch them. So they are more of an annoyance than anything..Version: 1.4.1

ZERO RATINGGreat game BUT…….the ads! SO MANY! SO ANNOYING! SO FRUSTRATING! A real shame when greed ruins what could have been a money spinner for the developers - I’ve read reviews that even the paid version - which I would have been more than happy to purchase - is lousy with ads. Developers: take a good hard look at yourselves. You may be making bucket loads of money selling ad space but ethnically you are ripping people off. PS: I would give you zero stars but I couldn’t..Version: 1.11.2

Freakish amount of adsThe game itself is fun, and I enjoy playing it. However, the amount of ads is so ridiculous I had to come write a review to warn people not to download. Now I understand the need to have ads to make revenue if you have people playing the game for free. There are ads before and after every game with optional rewards ads (and bottom of the screen ads). What really frustrates me is that anytime you swipe out of the game you get an ad. If you respond to a text message, swipe to change the brightness of your screen/to check the time, or even accidentally swipe to see all the apps you have open at once, the game will force another ad down your throat that you will be unable to skip. It’s driving me crazy, and this game is just unplayable even for the most patient of people..Version: 1.28.0

Too many adsThis game is so frustrating with way too many ads. They are literally after every turn and you can’t skip them unless you watch the whole ad, and then it’s difficult to find the way to close the ad. It’s also very annoying that you can’t undo a letter by tapping on it, so if you accidentally press the wrong letter, you waste a turn. Not worth the download at this stage..Version: 1.5.1

Limited answersSometimes more than one word can be made using the letters, for example Male, meal and lame are valid answers for those 4 letters but the game will only accept the one it thinks is correct. That’s a bit frustrating..Version: 1.2

The ads are unbearableI downloaded this game to see what all the hype was about. But the number of ads is unbearable. So much so that you’re actually spending significantly more time watching ads than actually playing the game. I did some Googling and found an article where the developer had said he wasn’t interested in putting monetised ads on the game, and he just wanted people to enjoy it. Lol. I guess the greed got the better of him in the end. If the ads were only placed at the end of a game, that would be bearable. But having a 1 minute non-skippable ad after every round, means that you’re playing for 10 seconds then watching an ad for one minute. It’s insane. Anyways, that’s all. I’m deleting the app now..Version: 1.7.0

Too many adsThe ad frequency is unacceptable..Version: 1.14.2

Could be greatVery addictive, but some major flaws: 1) cannot turn the irritatingly loud sound down a bit so have to turn my entire phone on to silent whilst playing 2) makers of the game didn’t consult a dictionary in the making of this game, so many legit words aren’t allowed (in the last 5 minutes playing the game, the following words have been disallowed: Runes, tubed, evils, filed, froth). There are plenty of sites which will tell you which words you can make with different sets of letters so why not check these out and update your game?.Version: 1.2

Complete lieI never leave reviews, but I feel I must warn people. I was enjoying the game and decided to pay for the ad free version as I found they interrupted game play. It made the game unplayable quite frankly. I understand ads are how money is made, and was happy to pay for an ad free version. After paying I discovered it is not ad free at all. It’s more or less exactly the same so I have paid for nothing. I have complained to Apple and request a refund, as you have not provided what you have advertised. I have now deleted the app..Version: 1.12.2

Weird version of EnglishMany of the words aren’t real words. Only seems to support the American version of English, so I would avoid this game if you live in England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Australia, New Zealand etc etc etc. Developers please consider adding British English and support the majority of countries, rather than the one that speaks US English..Version: 1.2

Too many adsHad to delete . I could not escape the ads.Version: 1.14.3

RubbishTotal rubbish and a waste of time not even worthy of a one star rating. Ads popping up during games. Double letters are shown as being correct (although in wrong positions) when in fact there’s only one of that particular letter. Whoever created this garbage needs to learn how to programme and not waste everyone’s time..Version: 1.11.0

Too many ads!Way too many ads. Spend more time closing them then playing the actual game. Also very challenging as there is no hints to help you guess words..Version: 1.10.1

Paid for no ads but still have ads?How are you gonna charge me $8.49CAD for no ads but make me watch ads to play past words of the day? That’s crazy, y’all are so messed up for that. Wouldn’t have paid to have no ads if I knew this..Version: 1.14.2

It won’t recognize all wordsMy biggest issue with this is that there have been several times where it will not recognize a real word put in, so you still have to to figure out what words it will accept while the timer keeps going—- essentially cheating you and your score. For example, it’ll accept words like “cars” (or obviously scar) or gaff but don’t bother put in “roes” or “woes” because it’ll only recognize “rose” (or sore) or “owes.” 😒 If part of a game’s purpose is to put in as many words down as fast as you can, the game should really make sure to have an extensive vocabulary of words. I still met the requirement to get to another level, but I was too annoyed by the flawed recognition that I barely bothered. I plan on deleting the game shortly..Version: 1.2

Tested a PatternThe game, Wordle, itself is fun because it’s a logic pattern. However, the creators of this App went overboard on the advertisements. It’s ridiculous to be halfway into a game and suddenly have to watch a 30 second advertisement. Can’t the programmers set a condition/rule to wait until the round is done? The words begin to repeat themselves after about 100 games. Watch out for obnoxious words with double and even triple letters of the same. Lastly, the game is setup to only reward rounds won based on coins collected after the player has failed to “guess” the word. It’s not guessing when you use logic. I solved 49 in a row in 1 day in a couple hours. The better way to earn coins is to only win a few rounds in a row and then intentionally lose and then the algorithm feels sorry for you. Waste of time and I’ve deleted the App..Version: 1.11.2

UselessNo instructions or anything to tell you what you’re supposed to do. Never had a more useless app in my life..Version: 1.14.3

Too many AdsI downloaded this because so many people recommended it to me, but was sorely disappointed. First off, the amount of ads is ridiculous. Every time you get a row or finish a puzzle it gives you one, disrupting the flow of the game and also just irritating the player. The timed limit is off for the longer words and the incessant offers to buy an ad free version of the game are unwanted and frankly seem like a rip off. It’s a shame, as the game has a good concept but has been ruined by commercialisation..Version: 1.9.0

Too many adsPain to play.. ads every 2 seconds. Takes away the enjoyment.Version: 1.14.3

REMOVE THE ADSThe ads completely destroy the experience of this game. It had the potential to be a fun and addictive game, however you spend more time trying to manoeuvre your way out of the ads than actually playing the game. I have thus given up and will deleting the app from my phone with no intention of returning to the game unless it actually becomes playable in the future. Again, to the game creators, this app has great potential… However, if you truely want to see it succeed, you’ll need to remove your current add setup..Version: 1.9.1

Many more ads than most gamesOverall I enjoy the puzzles but the number of ads in this game is at least double most other games I play. Even hitting the back arrow to switch games will start an ad and then when you select another game another ad will immediately start. A new ad pops up randomly throughout game play. You could be trying to enter a guess and BAM another ad. Most word games play the ads between rounds so it doesn’t throw you off. Also, all of the ads are quite long and have an addition 10-15 wait time after the ad for the x to pop up allowing you to close it. Yes, I understand there’s no such thing as free but this is over top. One other thing to note is I’ve been playing this game only a couple of days and already words have started to repeat..Version: 1.9.1

Very disappointingThe app constantly lagged, as in every 20 seconds it just froze and nothing worked, until about 30-3 mins later, where it would do all of the actions you did all at once, leading in a lot of frustration. There were constant ads everywhere you looked, meaning the space where the app could actually (barely) function was limited. Overall really just disappointing and seemed as if they just want to make money on the millions of people now flocking to this app. Sad really..Version: 1.11.0

WordleThe game itself was ok. But after the third game the ads where so annoying so deleting ap.Version: 1.9.1

So many ads and alarming amount of background activityVery little of your time can be spent trying to play the actual game, with all the ads that pop up. And they’re timed ads, so there’s no way to click through them, even if you aren’t at all interested in what they’re selling or EVEN IF YOU ALREADY HAVE WHAT THEY'RE SELLING. I would urge even the most patient and tolerant person not to download this ap, since, even if you don’t mind walking away for a bit while these constant ads play, it seems like there’s a lot of background activity taking place, even while playing the game, causing delays when you’re trying to type your guesses, with huge lags between letters, sometimes even seeming to freeze entirely. I’m not a developer, but I do wonder what is occupying so much of the app’s attention, after signing off on their user agreement and giving permission to god knows what information is being accessed. It’s so bad that it comes to a complete halt at times and crashes entirely. So bad, that I recommend deleting any app that appears to be associated with it, like the ones it advertises, one of which I had considered buying, but now most certainly will not. It the sign of a developer who lacks anything of value to offer, so survives on the sole project of extracting value from others by whatever means is necessary and however possible. tl/dr: this app is way too expensive — especially the free version. Don’t do it..Version: 1.11.0

BrokenThe classic game mode doesn’t allow you to type.. broken.Version: 1.14.2

Not that greatSpend more time watching ads than playing.Version: 1.4.2

Too many adsEven though I paid for the app there are still a ton of apps..Version: 1.12.2

Not accessible at allI used to be really good at games like this before I lost my site. This game is not accessible at all for blind people it is flipping hopeless. All it takes is a little more time to program it with the ability for iPhone or Samsung with a VoiceOver function to recognise what is in boxes you could easily set it up to see box contains W write letter right place box contains T right letter wrong place box contains E wrong letter so it would be really simple. But developers never think that blind people want to play games like this but I do I’m intelligent I like to tax my mind as well… So Mr developer please rejig your app so that it works with the VoiceOver function or the Bixby function on Samsung thank you.Version: 1.6.0

Obnoxious Notifications and Questionable Word ChoicesI had notifications disabled for the longest time because the app subscribes to the philosophy that sending obnoxious, begging notifications is the way to get users back into the app. But now that Versus was released, I'm debating whether or not the app is allowed to spam me with empty, useless notifications begging me to play the daily word which I already played, claim my daily gift which I already did, or just "Come back to Wordle." Apple should crack down on these obnoxious notifications. The word list is also very suspect. Any five-letter word can be the word which leads to a ton of "-er", "-es", "-ed" scenarios which trap you in a pit of despair trying to find which two of over a dozen letters plays (and sometimes it's the same letter twice: pipes). The game turns into luck instead of skill. These words should never be dailies and barely should be in the Classic rotation..Version: 1.25.2

Deleted everythingDon’t get me wrong, it’s a fun game and I enjoy playing it except for a few things. But, first of all, THE ADS. It is uncalled for to have to watch an ad to do literally anything on the app. Want to start a new game? Ad. Want to take your third guess? Ad. Want to look at the leaderboard? Ad. It’s just absurd. Second of all, my app recently removed all of my progress. Every high score, every power up, all my coins, even every daily challenge I’ve done. Hopefully it’s just a one time thing because I’m pretty unhappy about losing everything I’ve done for the past month and a half. Oh, and I’m not going to go back to do all the daily challenges again because guess what? If you want to do a daily challenge that isn’t the one from that day, AD. I was enjoying this app at first, but the more I’ve played the more I’ve found some major problems with it..Version: 1.16.2

Sound is LOUDI can’t play this game around people because I can’t turn the LOUD sound off. I have the volume turned off on my phone and can’t turn the sound off on this app in my settings. Please create an option for sound to be turned off? Thanks!.Version: 1.2

So frustratingHi I like this game and play everyday with my Mum… but the ads were really annoying to both of us so as I like the game decided to pay to remove the ads but unfortunately this is not the case & is very misleading on the part of Wordle it does remove the ads at the bottom of the screen but those are by far the least annoying as you still get extremely long cut away ads at the beginning of a game… Ok I completely understand having to watch an ad in order to claim & extra gift but for me paying to remove ads should actually remove them… I feel I’ve been misled & ripped off. This game should have 5 stars & if you like wasting your life watching mindless pointless ads than you’ll probably give it 5 stars for me I’m afraid I give it 1 star ⭐️.Version: 1.12.1

Great game. Still get addsI love this and would have given a 5 star rating IF the adds were removed after I paid for them to be removed. SOME adds were removed and the one I still see often is R rated. If I just play one game a day I don’t see adds. Please remove adds. I’ve paid for them to be removed. False advertising..Version: 1.12.1

Ads galore!What could have been a fab game had it not been ruined by the endless ads that it likes to make you watch. literally every minute you are shown an ad that plays for at least 30 seconds and makes the game unplayable. I don’t mind ads as I understand that’s how the game makes money or you can pay for the ad free, however this is just taking it to the next level, it’s more like you have downloaded an advertisement app and every once in a while you get to play a bit of a game. Maybe should rename it adsle..Version: 1.9.1

AnnoyingI like this game, but I keep having to delete and reinstall because it stops working..Version: 1.14.2

Overly excessive adsYou reach a point in the game where after entering one word, it takes you to 3 ads. Sometimes the ad lasts for 3 minutes. Not worth it, deleted..Version: 1.8.0

DISAPPOINTED!I am very disappointed in this game. I enjoy playing and it is challenging. However, I would look up at my coins and large amounts would have been removed. I hadn’t used them in any way. They would just suddenly disappear, leaving me with very little. I kept on playing thinking I wasn’t using them anyway. But, it stopped allowing me to click on “try again” and “Calendar Plus”. Instead it would take me to the page where you purchase coins. I purchased once so I could continue playing. But, I am not going to continue purchasing so them can remove them when they want. My sister and I play it together, and she hasn’t had any problems. I even deleted the game and reinstalled. It changed nothing. Took me right back where I left off. I don’t recommend this game and plan to look for another one..Version: 1.24.3

Not really ad free is it?I paid for the removal of ads, because the game is otherwise good and the ads without paying are incredibly annoying…but all it does is introduce slightly less annoying ads. It’s constantly prompting you to view an ad to unlock skips, or make you click to view an ad after finishing a game. This shouldn’t be the case when you pay to remove ads. Finally, the functionality of the app is ‘fine’. Good concept but occasionally it doesn’t register clicks on letters too well (playing on iphone 13 so don’t think it’s an issue with older touch screens). Game is decent, but requested a refund as I can’t bring myself to put up with the functionality….Version: 1.5.1

Do not buy!I recently purchased Wordle so that I could get it ad free… That is what was promised… But in order to access Wordle each day you have to claim coins which come with an ad that last forever. Very annoying. I’d like to get my money back I don’t know how..Version: 1.14.4

Too many plural words and double lettersI’ve been playing this app for about 2 weeks and even paid the $2.99 to stop the ads. To be fair, I only get ads now if I want more coins, otherwise, the games all run ad free so the $2.99 is definitely worth it to me. However, the powers that be need to work on their word lists. There are far too many plural words AND too many words with double letters such as loons (plural AND double vowel). It makes this a mere guessing game and not a true challenge. You can easily waste 2-3 word guesses and it’s just not fun. I’d much rather deduce a word like ‘hound’ or ‘globe’ than what I am getting with words like ‘doors’ or ‘moves’ or ‘moved’ (past tense). I have read the free ‘real’ version has yet to use plurals for this year 2022. Use challenging 5 letter words rather than plurals or verb tenses..Version: 1.13.0

Could be a lot better1/ Major sound issue needs to have volume control 2/ need a better dictionary there is more than one way to spell certain words and to make other words not just the ONLY one that is accepted 3/ timing of allowed letter choices is horrendously varied I don’t get it sometimes you have time to spare and other times you can’t even get one letter chosen straight away Not flexible enough.Version: 1.2

Ads after 2 games.Will be just to annoying to play with so many ads. UPDATING: I was contacted by Lion Studio Plus to update my review. After playing for free I wrote a review because after 2 games I was hit with an Ad. I paid for “No Ad,” however to claim coins after a winning game I get trapped in an Ad! There’s a timer on some of the Ads but even after it runs out I can’t find a way to X out of the Ad and end up just swiping out of the game to restart later…without my winning coins. Frustrating and annoying. Not sure why I paid a fee for that nonsense. I’ll give the game an added star because you do have the ability to compete with other Wordle players which can be fun if you want to play with friends. However, since you are also playing with coins (which can buy or win) it’s an unfair game. You can can buy difficult words to send or pay for multiple hints to win a game. Spend a few days on it, but I can’t get pass the trap Ads and playing against someone who may have more coins just seems silly. I can play free Quordle and NYT Wordle Ad free. That’s enough for me. Just like challenging myself..Version: 1.26.1

Ads are incessant!I read about this and downloaded it, the game itself is fun but I am getting an ad that is impossible to close after every game! The game lasts a few seconds then an ad pops up which is impossible to close you have to click to download it then, don’t download it then click done, do this a couple of times then finally a scroll arrow pops and finally there is an x in the top right hand corner. The time it takes to close the ad is as long as two or even three games. I’ve never known anything like it what a shame. I get they’ve got to make money and an ad every so often would be OK, but after every quick game with no close arrow for immediate use, shameful. The sad thing is I’d be interested in quite a few if the games they’ve advertised BUT would never get now as I’m guessing there would be the same bombardment of ads. Shame on you Wordle.Version: 1.4.2

Ads kill itGreat game but there are so many ads that last so long i spend more time waiting for them to pass rather than play. It really kills the game. And when i tap fast which is the point of the game sometimes a letter does not register which is very frustrating. Then I cannot go back or erase I have to type all other letters before I can start again which is a waste of time. Great game but in the end not fun to play. Quite frustrating..Version: 1.5.1

Ads every 2 minI downloaded to see what the hype was about. Started to play and enjoyed the game but within 2 min I was hit with two ads you have to wait a full minute to skip. Kept playing then another 1 minute ad about 3 min later. Finished one game then another ad, then 2min later another ad. At least make the ads 10 seconds long and spaced 5min apart otherwise no one will try before they buy the ad free version..Version: 1.11.0

Alright I guessI mean I don’t know why ‘slag’ is in there but whatever floats your boat🤷🏻Had a shock when boob came up playing with my Mum also. Despite this, decent game. Got 64 second attempt so the difficulty thing might just be a pattern of mind, doesn’t make ya uneducated. Switch off the internet to get rid of the ads quick fix there and for the creators bring back off-chart time + letter retraction + less time, have a nice night🌃.Version: 1.12.0

Was good, don’t bother nowGood but changed for the worse. I originally downloaded this mistakingly after confusing it with the popular daily puzzle. Despite this, it was a great pass time for idle moments. However, two changes have occurred in a recent update. Firstly, after every go, you have to sit through an advert. This isn’t simply a quick five seconds, it’s a tedious full length one. This hugely puts me off using it for aforementioned idle moments. Secondly, if you make a mistake (I.e. Using one letter when you intended to use a different one) there is no way of clearing or deleting. You have to write the incorrect word out to try again. This obviously costs time for fat fingers and gives you a greater chance of suffering through the adverts. A few days ago, I’d highly recommend. But just not worth the hassle now..Version: 1.4

Interrupting advertsGood game but very irritating when an advert keeps popping up LITERALLY after every guess at the word!! Got that irritating that I actually can’t play as was just annoying me and takes the fun away from playing. It’s also annoying when I can’t seem to leave a review as I have to give a nickname and weirdly every one I choose is taken hence the Random one I chose.Version: 1.7.0

Remove AdsI liked the free version but the ads irritated me. So I bought the app which said “Remove ads”. I thought it would remove ads. It has not. Feeling I have been ripped off unless I am doing something wrong. Also no instructions on how to play the game and how to turn sound off or what happens when you get a wrong word and some letters disappear and others are highlighted. Some explanation would be handy. Mostly though I want to be rid of ads!.Version: 1.5.1

Great game, way too many adsI love the actual game, the “Classic” version is very addictive and fun, but the experience is totally ruined by lengthy ads that are tedious to skip and occur almost after every interaction with the game. I don’t mind at least one ad after every complete puzzle, but the in between one’s really spoil one’s concentration. I did consider paying for ad-free, but reading other reviews it seems like you still get some ads. Also not pleased about seeing gambling ads..Version: 1.9.1

Too many adsUPDATE: I decided to buy the app, to remove ads. Imagine my surprise to still be shown unskippable ads!! Absolute rip off. I understand with free apps, the developers make money from the ad revenue, but I find them intrusive - constantly popping up halfway through a level, playing a video I don’t care about seeing, or randomly taking me to the App Store. It would be much better if the ads just appeared at the end of levels. Had to uninstall because it was just so frustrating..Version: 1.10.0

FrustratingFun game but the constant ads completely ruin it. Repetitive and too long.Version: 1.14.3

AdsGet this app if you love gambling ads..Version: 1.14.3

Ok, could be better…The reason for the OK rating is that the game is too easy and the game itself can be beat. First, five letter words are easily figured out. To make the game more challenging six or seven letter words, as an option, would help. Second, following the rules of the game itself, if you amass enough coins you can use the hints to simply reveal the word. And, it is easy to build up a huge pile of coins by playing the mini games. When you do this, you effectively beat the game itself. To fix this, the developers could limit the use of clues to once or maybe twice per word. As it stands right now, even without using the hints to “cheat” the game, it is not very challenging and after a few weeks of playing, I no longer open it..Version: 1.18.0

Way too much adsThere’s like an add every 5 seconds. This is not the great game people are looking for.Version: 1.14.3

WordleNot impressed. Bought the game through Apple apps and getting ads all the time.Version: 1.9.1

Good Game. Atrocious amount of Ads.Like most other reviewers I’m here to complain about the ads. The game is great. The Ads are the worst I’ve come across and make it unbearable. I genuinely hope you masterminds take note and do something about this. You have the international popularity platform you don’t need this level of ads to make your fortune. Charge more for less frequency- they’ll pay and we’ll play..Version: 1.11.0

Could Have Been FunI decided to try Wordle to improve my “letter” thinking; I’m a terrible speller and scrabble player, so this seemed good for me. Unfortunately, the game uses a 15 second timer to control your gameplay. Not only are you supposed to use all three guesses within this time limit, ignoring how it rearranges the letters halfway through, the timer is a bright red/pink line that draws a close circle around the letters in the middle of the screen; you will notice it. In fact the timer doesn’t even seem to restart between words, with the clock simply jumping back a few seconds and continuing on. So, this game is, how many words can you accurately guess from a changing letter shuffle in 15 seconds? Also, not Wordle. Some people may enjoy this set up, but I do not and it is not the game advertised. Another problem to be aware of, no post-game ads that I have encountered have an “x” option; they are full screen and continuously refers you the app ads store purchase option. The only way to leave it is to reboot the app..Version: 1.6.0

To many ads to be playableIt seems like it could be a good game, but there are just way to many ads in it. There are ads at the bottom of the screen, there are ads between levels an worse of all it seems to randomly play an ad in the middle of a puzzle, this breaks my concentration and just causes frustration. I understand that they have to make money from the ads, but when there are so many I would rather just not play the game. I could pay for an ad free version, but as I’ve said, the ads have just made we frustrated, so I’m not going to pay for something that has made me frustrated..Version: 1.11.2

This is not the Wordle that everyone is talking aboutFake and fraudulent misrepresentation here Apple should remove this garbage.Version: 1.4.1

Time I can’t get backThere are way to many adds in the free version. Don’t waste your time supporting these pandering clowns..Version: 1.14.3

DepressingDownloaded this after hearing greats things. I’m an expert top-rated scrabble player but cannot get to level 3. Some normal words are disallowed for instance. Also the time limit is ridiculous bearing in mind you cannot undo a mis-tapped letter. You just have to undo the lot by pressing the shuffle button top right. There are far too many long annoying ads as well and I just shut down the app and start again on a hectic panic-stricken path to get to level 3. Surely I can’t be that useless I think? But as it is structured I am. It depresses me and makes me anxious at the same time. The horrible noises add to my stress. Not at all relaxing and I hope the developers listen to the long list of unhappy users here. It has potential, but as it stands, deleting is the only option for a peaceful life..Version: 1.4.2

Should be renamed Ad-dle!If I could give this game zero stars I would. I love word games and the challenges they bring especially on a timer BUT… the timer for this game, especially for the longer words is utterly ridiculous. If you misspell in your panic to get it in time, you can’t undo. You just lose and with it comes an ad. Talking of ads, they pop up when you’re mid-game and you get an ad after every game you lose. The amount of ads is disgraceful. This is the first game I’ve downloaded with this many ads! And I’m pleased I didn’t go for the ad-free version as I have read lots of reviews that say you still get ads when you’ve paid not to have them! Seriously?? Utterly disappointed in this game and I will be deleting..Version: 1.14.3

I’m honestly impressed by how greedy the dev isThis game came out 5 years ago is coincidentally named the same as the popular web game, but that’s were the similarities ended. The goal of this game was to quickly guess 4-6 letter words before the clock ran out. Pretty fun simple concept and a little stressful. I found myself playing it nonstop. Then the developer realized he had a chance to make a fortune based on people looking for the Wordle game that has gone viral. Under the guise of a “Bug fixes.” update, the app was changed overnight to an ad infested game. It was now a chore to play the game. Of course the developer added his own version of Wordle called “6 guesses” and now what made this game unique is lost. If you came here looking for gameplay similar to the online Wordle web app, you’ll find it, but be prepared to see an ad every 1-2 guesses. The only joy that this game provides is to the developer as I’m sure he’s making a killing. Congrats on winning the name lottery. For everyone else, stay away unless you love ads..Version: 1.7.0

Not as good as people sayI downloaded wordle because everyone was going crazy about it but it is not that good , it is quite basic and simple it is not as exciting as I’d hoped. But it is more fun that word search games I guess but I am not that impressed with Wordle and I am not stunned by this new game. And what is up with the ads!!! There are ads like every minute!! That is definitely something that needs to be fixed. There are limited options in the game but i guess it is more fun and has more games in it than any other random word game. I don’t get why everyone was going crazy about the game and were so happy about it, I just don’t get it! But I do like the ‘5 guesses’ option in the game, can be fun! I don’t think this game was the best idea but there was one thing I did like which I mentioned above. Thank you..Version: 1.8.0

Great Game; Ridiculous Ad intrusionGiven the popularity of the daily Wordle in the NYT, this App could have easily rated five stars.... but the ridiculous manner in which the ads have been incorporated to generate revenue. this version of the game will quickly try the patience of even the most devoted Wordle fan. One ad is longer than 3 rounds of the game; they occur everywhere - even in the middle of a game. i can't imagine a more careless use of ads attempting to generate revenue. They're only going to cause people to abandon the game entirely and wait for the next better app to arrive. Oh, and the paid version requires an overhaul as well.... unless you think people will continue paying the equivalent of $2-3 for 5 to 10 min of "gaming"..... good luck with that revenue modem as well..Version: 1.11.2

Mixed feelings about updateNew update is slicker, with better vocabulary. But even after buying the ad-free version I am interrupted with an offer to watch ads if I want to repeat a go (why would I want to do that?) with a delayed ‘no thanks’ option. It slows down the pace of the game and is unwelcome. Other buttons that load up ads are placed right next other function buttons so you can’t help loading up ads by mistake. It’s sneaky and dishonest to do that. Especially when customers have already paid for the ad-free version. I’m one of the customers who download the app initially expecting the online Wordle game, but I also like this game and I respect the approach the developers have taken in giving some of the unexpected revenue to charity. However - a paid-for ad-free version should be ad-free. Please lose the sneaky ad buttons within the game or at least move them out of the way. Update: Latest update has made things worse not better. Even more ways to trick a player into watching an ad (even though paid for ad-free). Disrupts the game. Not enjoyable. Will now delete it the app. It’s a shame though..Version: 1.7.0

Fun BUT……The ads are extreme . Annoying..Version: 1.14.2

Garbage ImitationThis is full of crap ads and nothing like the real thing..Version: 1.14.2

Ad galoreThe game is built on a really popular and enjoyable foundation, it’s a good test of knowledge, and not too hard to the point it’s demotivating. That being said, as soon as you guess a word, an ad pops up. it’s completely unreasonable, and completely disrupts any train of thought you may have while playing. It’s honestly a shame because everyone’s playing it right now, even though it’s 10% playing and 90% watching ads. Feels like such a cash grab and it baffles me how the developers can see the reviews, which is a solid 95% people complaining about it, and still not change anything. Probably won’t be playing it much longer, and from the looks of it most people won’t be either..Version: 1.6.0

Scam, paid for no ads and there’s still adsScam app, paid to get it ad free and there’s still 30 second unskippable ads.Version: 1.13.0

AdsWay way way too many ads, couldn’t even enjoy enough to contemplate paying to remove ads, did I mention the ads?.Version: 1.9.1

The Most Infuriating ExperienceIf you want to be interrupted constantly with ads then you’ll enjoy this game. It’s outrageous that Apple have allowed this to be published. Right in the middle of a game and up pops and ad. All because they want to force you to pay for the ad free version. I tried several times thinking perhaps I was overreacting but after getting an ad that I literally couldn’t close unless I downloaded the advertised game for the 3rd time (I would just close the app) I’ve decided enough was enough. I’ve never been one to leave reviews but this experience angered me so much I only felt it right to warn others. Reduce the amount of ads and forced clicks and otherwise the actual game is good. As it stands, I feel myself and probably many others will walk away from this game and never return..Version: 1.9.0

Ad choicesI came here to complain about the lack of ad choices as I find some extremely offensive and there ads completely fraudulent. If you are going to shove ads down my throat to play a game - at least give me a choice. I also find it interesting that after reading the hundreds of reviews relating to the number of ads - not one response from the developer. They seem to respond to other concerns about the game functions but don’t seem to care or consider how much revenue they are losing when people quit the game due to the ads. Also no response to the questions about the privacy policy. Unresponsive and unethical developers are a dime a dozen. Last app from this company I will use ever..Version: 1.20.0

Quite annoyingI downloaded this because of all the drama about it on TikTok.. it’s not even good, I can’t lie. Rather boring and the way people on TikTok live streams play it makes me mad for some reason. They take it so seriously, like there’s money on it or something. They think about every possible outcome ever and it makes me mad because it’s just a game. Play it and make it fun! Don’t make it stressful or whatever. This is the type of game that annoying math loving people who enjoy correcting peoples every little mistake like to play. Also I’ve pressed the ‘skip level button’ instead of the ‘submit’ button around 3 times now and it’s so annoyinggg! My brain automatically assumes the send/submit button will be there because of where it’s located in iMessage.. I could’ve used it when I actually needed to, not when I’m literally about to win. Please move the button or add a confirmation thingy before actually skipping it, that’d be way better!.Version: 1.14.4

Endless adsSpend more time watching ads than playing the game.Version: 1.8.0

What’s all the hype for?It’s basically hangman without the entertainment of seeing the stick man get closer to being hanged with each wrong guess. There’s a game called secret word that quickly gets old because it quickly repeats the same words so you’re just repeating the same game endlessly. You get a free gift every day but it’s the kind of app that instead of just resetting every day, it resets according to the first time you open the app that day. So if you don’t play it all day until 10 at night one day, you have to wait until 10 PM the next day before the gift reappears. Also they have that annoying feature where you fill a piggy bank with correct answers and then you can buy it for a few dollars. You can’t just win free coins, you have to buy them. It’s cheaper than the regular price but I still feel like it’s a ripoff to “earn” a full piggy bank and then have to pay for it. I really don’t get what all the fuss is about. Overrated.Version: 1.14.4

A game for people who love watching adsWish I could give zero stars. The one star is because there is actually a possibility to play this game, but this is limited at best. The ads are simply horrendous. Adds to open the app, adds every 20 seconds of play, adds upon adds, more adds, etc. The game is concentration based- by the time you have seen three words, an add pops up and goes for 30 seconds, then you’re back in the game and the timer’s running out by the time you get back into it. No problem at all until the update. If you love it that much, fine -pay for the ad-free version. This update is blatant coercion to pay and the game is devoid of substance. Delete it off your device and go back to living your life, as I have done after writing this review..Version: 1.9.1

Not ad freeLike many of the other comments i feel ripped off, it’s only £2.49 but it’s the principle that you’re not getting what you paid for. If you were in a pub and paid for a pint but only got half what would you do!! The coins don’t seem to be of any use and the rules aren’t comprehensive enough. It’s a simple game don’t complicate it. When you get an ad it’s hard to get back to the game, keeps freezing and going to the App Store. Unless it improves I will be deleting it and asking Apple for a refund..Version: 1.12.1

Ridiculous amount of adsI love the game, and downloaded this as a means to play it on my downtime at work. Never have I been so frustrated so quickly by a game- it feels like every time you guess a word (regardless if you get it right or wrong) it flings up an ad that you can’t skip. I am so bored of the constant ads for Candy Crush and PayPal- which although yes I remember the ads 1) I already have both of those, 2) l only remember them because they irritate me now based on seeing the ads every 10 seconds on this app. Honestly I would not recommend this app to anyone as it just tries your patience… and I’m a therapist so if it’s trying my patience that should say it all really..Version: 1.6.0

Not often…Do I write reviews… but I started seeing a lot more people were playing an old game revived by New York Times. Anyways, I like the fact that you can continue to play instead of one puzzle a day. What I dislike is that you cant share your puzzle winnings on Facebook with the APP, yet the one a day website version you can share. Also, the ads are horrendous! If there is any way to cut back on them the game would be great, if and when they added on the other things I mentioned of course. I know there’s people out there dying and waiting for that 24 hour countdown. I can’t buy the premium version with no ads because I’m poor and still trying to pick up where the pandemic dropped me!! But hey I’ll take a $3 donation to my Apple ID!! 😂😂 - ☮️ and ❤️ God bless.Version: 1.11.0

Too many ads that don’t stopThe same king dies everytime!.Version: 1.14.4

Beyond ridiculous amount of ads.Understand apps need ads but the amount is ridiculous! Can’t even get through one round without multiple ads coming up and how long they go for. Never seen so many with any app I have used. Great game but can’t play with that many ads. If you can handle more ads than actually playing then go for it! Definitely not for me!!!.Version: 1.6.0

Ok but lots of flawsCould be really fun but why does the sound have to be deafening? I have to physically switch the volume button on my phone off! Even just reducing the volume to the lowest possible level is way too loud! Shake to mix letters is finicky. Annoying things like that..Version: 1.2

Crappy ads tha cant be closedLike seriously?.Version: 1.14.3

Free version is a mareI fully Understand that free version means you watch the odd ads etc however, this is ridiculous it’s every 30 seconds or so. Hopefully the paid one is better but I like to road test the free apps before paying to see if like it and based off my user experience I would not pay for this or recommend it. Goodluck to other users..Version: 1.9.0

Not trustworthyDecided to give this a try since CodyCross has a similar daily game that I enjoyed. Had this for about 2 weeks and it was becoming my ‘go to’ game to kill time. I didn’t like the fact that every so often the game was jerky (would take a while for entries to show up), but I really liked the game. I deleted after 2 weeks because I had reached a score of 250 with no restarts. Finally, hit a puzzle that I couldn’t solve in 6 tries. I knew there would be a option for me to have 1 more attempt to solve the puzzle (just had to watch an ad) and sure enough it showed up, however, I was unable to click it, it was frozen. The only option I had was to start all over at 0. Why put your time and effort and money into a game that you can’t trust will work as expected..Version: 1.17.2

Constant ads ruin this gameI have tried to persevere as I really enjoyed the puzzles, but so many Ads that play for so long. It seems like every 30 seconds or so the ads pop up, sometimes in the middle of the game. It’s highly irritating. I downloaded a similar app that has much less ads. I just can’t be bothered with this anymore..Version: 1.11.2

Paid the $4.49 so I could play ad free but still ads?!The game is great, downloaded after hearing all the hype. After about 1 hour of play I got over having to watch the ads- that seem to go for a lot longer then 30sec. I went into the purchase page and clicked on the no ads and paid the money, however I’m still watching ads?!? What’s the point of paying for it, for no ads so that you can actually play without interruption if there is still going to be ads:( money wasted to be honest. Otherwise great game if you don’t mind all the ads.Version: 1.5.0

Ads for days…Sometimes you have to watch three ads in a row, and each game, often 2-3 ads. Fun game, but the ads kill it.Version: 1.7.0

Not sure?!I downloaded wordle after seeing great reviews and my friends playing it. Wordle can be extremely annoying; it has SOOOOOOOO many ads! In the middle of a game an ad pops up!😠Also if you are advertising you want to show people different games, where here tha ads are always the same game advertising! Also, it is made for people who are working as it is extremely hard and needs time. It can get quite stressful as their is a timer and all too. But wordle is a great app otherwise: just a few changes!.Version: 1.10.0

GoldenYou should be able to ‘x’ out a letter if you hit the wrong one instead of having to use them all to start again..Version: 1.2

NOT THE WORDLE YOU’RE THINKING OFThis game is not the wordle that you see people play and hear them talk about. This app could be fun if you didn’t get an ad EVERY SINGLE TIME you do ANYTHING. I tried to play this for a little while and the fact that for every 15 seconds of gameplay, you get a 15-30 second ad for a terrible game nobody wants, makes me sick. The only reason people are downloading this is because they don’t know that the real wordle is a WEBSITE and not a MOBILE APP. At this point there are dozens and dozens of Wordle clones online that are 100x better than this freemium garbage. If you want to play normal wordle, but more than once a day, please go look up “Wordguessr” online (it’s fun with no ads.) There are other versions that are much more enjoyable such as tridle, absurdle, squirdle, and more that I play and love. Whoever put this absolutely disgusting monstrosity of a game on the App Store, needs a good ol’ slap in the face. Get off your high horse and just reduce the number of ads, or change the name to something along the lines of “waste of time”.Version: 1.15.0

Not the popular gameFYI This is not the popular game everyone is talking about. And not a great game either..Version: 1.2

Keeps crashing with the fat pill adThis is so annoying. I had just deleted Match Master 3D because it kept crashing when the fat pill ad came on. You get a black screen that you can’t get out of and if you click on it it takes you to Safari and info on the fat pill. Having got sick of rebooting my iPad I then thought I would try another game so downloaded Wordle. Well, guess what same annoying fat pill ad telling me it is the last day to get them (every day!) and after a couple of days the same thing is happening. Fat ad = crashed game. If it keeps happening I shall be deleting this game too. Life is too short to be messing around with this all the time. Come on developers - get rid of the ads that are crashing the game!.Version: 1.14.4

Better before the updateUsed to love this app, but it recently got updated and now I find myself playing it less and less - I don’t like the new look of the words, it now doesn’t register clicks very well especially if you are doing the word fast, no way I can see to go back when you accidentally click a letter wrong. Also seems to have added new words many of which are very obscure or spelt with American spellings (not great for us brits) All in all fun game but much better before the recent update. Will probably stop playing it soon as I just don’t find it fun anymore..Version: 1.4

Ads, ads and nothing more - not suitable to children due to betting/ Gambling app diversionI open the app and it immediately diverts me to a betting app in the App Store. I choose a game and an add pops up that takes a minute to clear, when clicking x to close it takes me to the App Store from that add, I close and go back to the game. I finally begin to play and in the middle of a game I am randomly diverted to yet another betting/gambling app again without consent. I go back and continue to play and because of the disruption get the answer wrong and am forced to watch another advert. I understand advertising is how they get revenue but this is ridiculous. When I first downloaded the app it was allot more playable and you could enjoy it but not anymore. WARNING: not suitable for under 18’s due to the weird diversions to betting/ gambling apps..Version: 1.8.0

Not Wordle!This is not the Wordle game it pretends to be. Terrible..Version: 1.2

Beware!! Skips are one time use onlyWas playing without using skips but though I’d give it a try. Did not realise that when you buy a skip through the in-app purchase that it’s for one time use only rather than resetting each time you played. Ended up wasting what I bought… absolute money pit for those who are not wary. Totally agree with all of the other who comment on the limited vocabulary used. Fine if you are American..Version: 1.4

Not impressed!I paid 3.99 for add free and still getting adds! Rip off!.Version: 1.12.2

Bad gameFor a word guessing game, it sure doesn’t know a lot of valid words.Version: 1.2

Ads and more adsOriginally a great game until you are 30 sec in then the ad starts…and ruin this game completely. Look we understand the creator needs to make some money but the amount of ads are just horrendous. You can run into 2-3 ads by playing one game, just ONE! So yeah deleted this on the day three. What a shame. But plenty of similar words puzzle games out there that not so greedy..Version: 1.14.3

Too many adsIt’s not a bad game to play. I actually like the concept of it, but there is way too many ads. In 6 guess mode ads play every one to two word guesses and in classic mode where it’s time based you have ads popping up in the middle of word inputs. This would have to be fixed for me to play long term because as it is I’m not keen on continuing to play..Version: 1.8.0

Rip offPaid for no ads and still get the ads.Version: 1.14.3

Paid for no ads, still have adsF—u I want my money back, scammers..Version: 1.14.3

Missing the most basic of functionalityHere’s an idea, join the modern world and allow users to turn sound off so that ads don’t make a blaring sound even when your phone is on mute. The game forces you to turn sound all the way down to off. The problem is that you forget the sound is turned off when you’re done playing, then you end us missing calls/notifications. The most simple concept missed by the developers. Although, I don’t think they missed it. I think they don’t allow you to turn sound off for the sake of their advertisers. Booooo!!! I’m opting for one of their competitors that has the same game with better functionality..Version: 1.9.0

Save your moneyDownloaded and it’s a decent game. The free version bombards you relentlessly with ads, so I caved to pay the $4, which I thought was steep but worth it to get rid of the ads. Turns out you still have to suffer through a ridiculous amount of ads even with paying for the app. Save your money and play for free… you have to put up with ads anyways..Version: 1.14.2

Very disappointedI never write reviews but I just felt like I had to with this one. I really enjoy games like this BUT I feel ripped off by this one. I’ve paid for the ad free version and I’m still getting ads all of the time, constantly and it’s totally ruined the game for me. I know £2.50 in the grand scale of things isn’t huge but I haven’t got what I paid for. I have looked for different ways to contact the developers regarding my money back but leaving a review seems to be the only way? I would like to say some nice things about the game but I have only done one level because of how frustrating the constant ads are and when you exit the game and go back in it takes you back to the start. Don’t waste your time or money there are some really good puzzle apps out there and this really doesn’t stand up to the competition..Version: 1.9.0

Love this game but hate everything about the app itselfOverall there are way too many performance issues with this app. Freezing, delayed keyboard input and many other issues which involve me having to force quit the app to get it working again (This doesn’t happen to any other apps on my phone). As others have said, there are way too many ads, it is off putting and distracting - there are ads even in the middle of timed rounds and this completely defeats the purpose of it being timed if you are able to ponder on letters you’ve seen before the ad pops up (the time pauses). I guarantee better ratings if you fix these issues because it’s extremely off putting to players of the game..Version: 1.9.1

Unable to play. Game stuckI have really enjoyed playing this game, there are a huge amount of ads, even during the game play, which is off putting but for two days, I have not been able to play it, the calendar on daily puzzle, just shows all 1’s instead of dates. I have tried updating the app, switching on and off. Closing and reopening game but nothing works. When I try to play on another selection, the letters grey out that I select but no letters appear in the boxes above. Hope that gets sorted soon. Thank you..Version: 1.13.0

The worst appWould give give it 0 stars if I could. Way too many ads, so ridiculous, game isn’t even enjoyable. Literally get an ad in the middle of the game after each word I’ve guessed..Version: 1.12.2

AwfulThe constant ads pop ups interruption s make the app almost unusable and leave the user feeling aggravated and disgusted. Totally understand the authors / co behind the app want to secure revenue streams but when they get to the point that the user abandons the ridiculous effort it takes to play the game, something has gone off the rails. Just received a totally arrogant tone deaf reply to my initial review, which I am not changing. The reply suggests I purchase the remove ads feature. This is something I would do if the developers hadnt made the ads so obtrusive annoying and aggravating to the point I lose any motivation at all to reward them or use the app, on too of the fact they have obviously been given so much similar feedback in other reviews. Total disgust at their behavior. The app should be removed from the store In fact if I could lower it to zero stars I would.Version: 1.28.0

Ads are ridiculousStop the long ads. Can’t squeeze in a round without watching 2 ads. And these ads are for games that tell you can win money. They are scam games. Shame on your company from allowing these ads to interrupt your great game. If you don’t believe me about those games that say you can win money, just read their reviews. anyway if this keeps up I’m going to delete this game. There’s plenty of other mind games out there that don’t make you watch several long ads. Edit: after reading many other reviews I see that the situation with these long ads after short play has been complained about since earlier this year at the least. And they have not changed it so I don’t think that they will. Sometimes the ads are longer than the play sessions. Going to delete. EDIT EDIT: thank you for replying. But I already deleted your game. I don’t think you need to bombard your players with the amount of ads that you allow. I am sure you are making enough money. Or maybe your expenses are too high. Budget better. Cut the chaff..Version: 1.25.4

Too many adds and scams you to pay to remove themWould be a good game if the amount of ads was decreased. It really is over the top the amount you are shown. Two or three 30-45 seconds ad reels per game (games only last a minute or two). Avoid paying to remove the ads. It’s nothing more than a scam and the feature literally makes no difference and you will still be shown ads..Version: 1.12.0

Great gameAwesome game but I’m going to delete it cause there are more commercials than anything… I get it developers need to make money etc etc …. But a commercial after every try…. Come on give us a break… whoever though let’s put a commercial after every try should get out of the industry, down side is kids who enjoy it are learning new words but with all the ads… no one learns.Version: 1.11.2

WordleGood game, too many ads..Version: 1.14.3

Too many adsGame itself is good, but there’s just way too many ads, most of which go on for longer than 30 seconds and the skip buttons don’t work, they just take you straight to the App Store. Makes it hard to play and enjoy the game when you’re getting another add pop up every minute. Spending more time watching ads than playing the actual game.Version: 1.7.0

BETTER ENJOY WATCHING ADS. Game is fun but the ads are too numerous to deal withONE AD BETWEEN PUZZLES IS OK BUT THREE ? AND ALL OF THEM DOUBLE ADS? More time spent watching ads than playing game. I really like the word version of the old game mastermind but I am over whelmed by ads. You solve the word and you have to watch an ad before it congratulates you and offers you the prize. Then you click to claim the prize and have to watch another ad. No just to really slap you in the face and waste even more of your time when you select the next puzzle from the calendar you have to watch a THIRD AD before start I g the next puzzle.. I understand watching one but THREE??? Now to make matters even worse the ads are what I call double ads…. You watch the ad click the right top corner at the end and have to sit through a second page with 5e word GET in the middle of it for ani determinable amount of time befor a second X appears. SOMETIMES you just can’t get out and keep being sent to the Apple apps site. The only way to get out is to close WORDLE and reopen the app. SERIOUSLY ONE ADD IS ENOUGH BETWEEN-PUZZLES.Version: 1.26.1

Gambling baitI understand why app developers need to generate some side revenue via advertising, however, this app seems to be nothing more than a platform for gambling - based on the ads that appear with monotonous regularity. Gave it a few trys on the recommendation of a friend but uninstalled almost immediately once I saw the type and volume of ads. Not inclined to pay extra for ad free based on the experiences of other reviewers..Version: 1.6.0

Not using original EnglishAs someone who didn’t grow up learning the American version of English, it really kills the game for me. Developers, could you take this into consideration when designing these things that many countries don’t use Americanised English, it would make it more inclusive suitable for the different spellings. Also, I see what many others have said, soo many ads. Watched more ads than I did playing the game. Don’t see how either games win, I hate the game I’m trialing because of the ads, and I also hate the ad being advertised because it’s getting in the way. Don’t bother with this game, it’s a waste of time!!!!!!.Version: 1.10.1

Ridiculous Amounts of Ads!I love the game, but the amount of ads the you have to watch makes the entire game unbearable. I don’t mind watching some ads in order to help pay for the cost of the game, however.. the amount of ads this latest update has ruins everything. I am forced to delete to app now. I’ll try back again in 6 months and see if the app developers have listened to their customers..Version: 1.6.0

TrialI never complain about ads in free games, BUT I usually play the game for a while with ads to see if it’s worth buying the ad free version. There were SO many ads in the free version that I actually couldn’t play long enough to even see if I liked the game. A 30sec+ ad after every single guess is just insane..Version: 1.9.0

Paid to remove ads but they are still there!I paid the fee to remove the ads, but they are still there a moment later. Unless they disappear it’s a complete rip off!!!.Version: 1.14.3

To many interruptionsThis could be a great game could really enjoy it but so sick of the interruptions, I have to delete it as it really spoils the game, sorry could have been great for example something like panda pop good game no constant interruptions I know you’ve a living to make so put the adverts in at the end of a game not after every single attempt it’s too much, you will lose everyone at this rate, I’ve spoken to 9 people at work every one has deleted it because of this, time to think it through guys all the best, I’ll look on again after a month or so.Version: 1.9.0

4 star game play, -100 star adsYet another fun phone game completely destroyed by the aggressive and bombardment of ads. This is probably the worst and most shameless in game advertising I’ve ever seen…and that’s saying something because every game has ads now a days. Just to put it into perspective: let’s say you’re playing classic mode. In classic mode you have 6 guesses to find the 5 letter word. You can’t even type SIX words without 3 ad breaks. The ad breaks are twice as long as a round. If you’re going to have ads, okay…but WAIT UNTIL THE ROUND IS OVER. A round takes less than 5 min and the developers can’t even wait 2 and a half minutes before shoving another ad in your face. I’ll also thrown in that these ads are unskippable videos that blast the audio even if your phone is on silent. Pretty embarrassing if you’re playing at work or in public. Absolutely shameless and unacceptable. This game and the incessant berating of ads has crashed & overheated my phone a handful of times. Deleting and highly recommending you don’t download. Don’t support greedy developers. A message to the developers: have some respect for yourselves and make a game that you’re actually proud of rather than this slimy barrage of advertisements..Version: 1.14.4

Paid $4.99 to get rid of ads and still getting themPaid $4.99 to get rid of ads and still getting them. Total rip.Version: 1.6.0

NOISYThis is quite a nice wee game but the fact you can’t switch the noises off AT ALL even if you turn your sound down to 0 is annoying beyond belief. I like to play this type of game while listening to podcasts or audible, or when I can’t sleep or when I’m stuck on hold on the phone in the office ….utterly limits when I can play this game and the noises have not only driven me mad but my family. Get it sorted as otherwise you’ll lose your customers. I certainly wouldn’t upgrade …not even for no noise…your inconsiderate settings have really annoyed me enough to try and find something else.Version: 1.2

Too many ads do not bother downloadingWas such a good game until the update now every time I get a word I get an ad straight after every time I touch a button I get one or two ads complete waste of time and I’m deleting the game because of this.Version: 1.8.0

Way too many adds!I like this game but I get an add after every guess. This makes the game unplayable in my opinion so although I like the game I will be deleting it..Version: 1.9.0

Ridiculous amount of advertisementsI wasn’t even sure what you were supposed to do or what the colours of the letters meant. I love Wordscapes and lots of other word games. I had to stop using it because every five letters I put in and then submitted, I’d have to watch a one-minute ad. Crazy. I’m deleting it..Version: 1.9.1

Updated to show ads every turnNow shows ads after every move… uncool.Version: 1.14.0

Reduced functionality if you don’t share data!I don’t want my data tracked as is all our rights. However, if I don’t allow you track me you put a banner over the top of the game screen telling me that this isn’t helpful for you and needs fixing and to click the banner to fix it. Annoying but OK if that was all but the banner obscures two options in two parts of the GUI - a cynical person might think you were doing this on purpose to annoy players into allowing tracking of data. Behave yourself Wordle and stop the banner blocking the GUI thereby reducing functionality for players who don’t wish to have their device tracked..Version: 1.11.2

LadyXrayI am so happy I have helped you make your fortune. I do expect to see a number of ads and understand seeing them for my playing the app BUT With the number of adverts I’ve suffered in the period I’ve had this app I personally must have contributed a small fortune!!! . I have never experienced any other app to have this many. Every four words and sometimes LESS there are one or two ads. TOO MANY. and so I’m deleting. Happy to have helped you on your way. Not.!!.Version: 1.10.0

Fraud scamming ect.Terrible, the ads are incredibly annoying.I would REALLY recommend not buying the ad free payment, it is a fraud. their are way to many ads in general and that should be replaced in advanced of all of these ratings too. my all over issues with this app was fraud , scamming and they unconditionally amount of ads that was put upon the app. It would definitely wouldn’t hurt to upgrade this disgraceful app. as much as I want to support this app, it’s just too overwhelming..Version: 1.11.0

Far too many addsI’m sure this is as fun as the hype makes out, but I’m struggling to even play the game as every turn is then followed by ads that are 30 seconds + in length. I get that they need to make money but, come on, the is over the top and blatantly greedy. This is the cancer killing games and people need to stop accepting it. I have no idea if it’s worth £2.50 as I can’t get n to the game at all..Version: 1.6.0

Issues with the AppI purchased that game, after few weeks it stopped working, I had to download load the game again. The new version is now asking me to buy the game game again, although I have paid once for it.Version: 1.14.2

Booted Twice NowI enjoy the challenge of this game and twice I had good streaks going, then I got to the bottom of the first screen and wanted another shot at it, but when I hit Tap to Try Again, NOTHING HAPPENED. It just sat there. 😡 Then it timed out and wiped out my streak! This happened twice!!! It’s hard enough to sit through all those stupid ads with cross-eyed cartoon characters that I would NEVER play. You do go overboard on the ads, especially when they pop up in the middle of a game. I can tell you that if I get another streak going and I get booted again, I’m going to delete the game and never download it again. Please fix whatever is wrong and give adults an option of what kind of ads you’re going to make us watch too many times..Version: 1.23.0

WordleNot the one I was looking for Can’t find the mute button And have seen more ads than words in game play Thank you and good night.Version: 1.4.2

The ads are ridiculousI really loved this game but I am on the verge of deleting it. for some reason someone thought it was better to have an ad in between every guess than in between each game. I cannot make a guess without getting not only an ad, but a long one. even when I attempt to skip the ads, I have trouble because it won’t let me exit out. I get why games have ads and all of that, but at the same time you’re ruining a game by putting so many at the worse times. if you really want to have so many ads, why not make players watch ads to skip a round and/or get hints? the ads can also be placed before starting a round and at the end of one. based on the handful of reviews i’ve read, no one is asking for no ads they’re asking for less and better placement. it’s also ridiculous that so many reviews are complaining about the ads yet nothing is being done about them..Version: 1.11.0

Paid to remove adsI paid extra to remove the ads and there are still many long and intrusive ads. Don’t bother giving them your money.Version: 1.14.3

Expect to be intruded with adsThe game is fairly fun to play; a bit frustrating tho as has a few bugs. However, the intrusion of ads during the game is ridiculous, for example during the timed mode ‘word fever’ it is frustrating when you already have a short amount of time to input the word and then a video ad pops up, you then have to wait for the skip button, then the App Store pop-up appears, you close that, then you wait for the x to be clickable on the poster ad, then you can get back to the game and take a few seconds to readjust to the scene when you have a timer. Very frustrating so accordingly shall remove this game..Version: 1.9.1

False letters!!!The annoying thing about this app is that you spend more time on words than necessary and this is due to the repeatedly revealing wrong letters to certain words!! example I had e, e, a right letters but in the wrong place and I had b which was in the right place. I couldn’t make out a word so once revealed the word was ‘abbey’ which as you can see doesn’t have two e’s 🤔.Version: 1.10.1

Ad SpamGame was fun until the update.. now you spend more time closing ads than playing. I get trying to get people to buy the full version and earning revenue but it’s completely ruined the app.Version: 1.9.0

Awful - too many adsThis game is trash, way too many ads to the point the games are insufferable. Played one game and four video ads popped up..Version: 1.6.0

Crashed! :( Fun while it lastedWhat’s up? Game crashed 2 weeks ago and still not repaired! Number of ads were a bit over the top. Update: horrible customer service response. Their idea of “fixing” problems is to mark it “resolved” when they have accomplished nothing. Attempts to fix the problem have been nothing but asking me for screen shots and details, which I’ve done 4-5 times already. When I send information they mark it “resolved” with nothing done on their end at all! I’ve done all of the fixes from my end multiple times- reset devices (app not working on all 4 of our devices, SO ITS NOT my device!), run from Wi-Fi only at different high-speed locations, run from cellular data only, deleted and re-installed app, updated software, hard reset devices, turn devices off and back on . . . HONESTLY- APP IS NOT WORTH THE RIDICULOUS NUMBER OF ADS ANYWAY..Version: 1.18.0

Ads everywhereI really wanted to enjoy this game but there are just far too many intrusive ads and buttons placed in annoying positions that result in either more ads or accidentally using options like skip puzzle which should be out of the way or at least have a confirm. I had fully intended on buying the ad free option but reading other reviews seems like it doesn’t stop the ads. It’s a shame because it’s otherwise a fun way to pass time..Version: 1.12.2

Data Harvesting disguised as a game?Even here where GDPR protects our data, the privacy policy you have to agree to in order to use the app, is a big clue to what this app is about. The developer is learning everything it can about you and your friends so that they can make money serving you adverts, both in the app and elsewhere online. Cross-device linking, advertising ID, location, address book contacts etc. NONE of this is required to play a game If you are interested in privacy then avoid this app.Version: 1.11.0

Not as good as people said...The review I read suggested it had been a very popular free app. With in app purchases it didn't look that great, but--no help and above all loud and annoying noises with no apparent way to switch them off. Even with the volume all the way down the noises are still very loud. A neat little app that was free or had honest pricing for a few quid/dollars ("in-app purchases" usually means people have to keep paying. I'm really against that and I'm usually happy to see an upfront price), fixed the stupid sound thing, and tweaked the speed so it wasn't as bad for people with motor control issues, would be worth £5 and a four-star review. By all accounts people really liked this as a freebie, but it's a pity about the problems..Version: 1.2

Correct spelling?Not all of words are real words making it hard to solve the puzzle..Version: 1.2

Would not recommendI am a inspector of apps like these and I decided to go over the privacy policy and the guidelines, now when you download it the terms of services immediately pop up giving you no chance but to click it. Of course this is normal but it’s kind of a bad choice because it gets normal users to just click agree and it will never show up again. Now as any non-normal person would do like me I read all of the guidelines and they were fine. Until I got to the privacy policy, turns out that if you hit agree then you are giving access to the creators to take every bit of information that they can find. Even taking it to 3rd party websites, not only will they take your IP address they will force you to make an account so they have your email address, your name, and your Facebook friends. Of course some of these are opinions but still some people would not be caring enough to just fill it out. Also there are way too many ads, so many that it’s aggravating. But that is all there really is, be careful about what you download and I hope you found this helpful..Version: 1.11.2

ReviewHi, I know that there is an option to pay and opt out of adverts on your game but I cannot afford to do that so I can put up with a few adds like I do on other games, but I have noticed that there are adverts between every single guess I make on a word game, that is way to excessive in my opinion and will stop myself and probably others bothering to play as it is extremely frustrating, if you could reduce the amount of adds to just playing them after each game/Wordle is completed I would continue to play..Version: 1.10.1

It’s a fake!If your downloading Wordle because it’s what everyone has been talking about then let me warn you that this IS NOT IT!!! Wordle is on a website not an app! This is a fake version and the real version is online because it is on the New York Times. It would be embarrassing to make the mistake so lucky I am warning you now! Remember the real Wordle is a game on the website for the NYTimes. This game is still fun so I won’t rate it too low but it’s not the real thing..Version: 1.13.0

Started out great, but then the ads kicked inThe game started out great, I was able to play a whole game before seeing an ad. Then after two or three games there was an ad EVERY guess. The game is fun and stimulates the mind an I would love to keep playing, but the ads are too distracting which make it unplayable. Has now been deleted from my phone and my wife’s..Version: 1.14.2

Way too many long adsI downloaded this today, had a few goes but then deleted it, the amount of ads is ridiculous and there doesn’t seem to be a way to get rid of them when they eventually finish, they seem to go on to a further ad and keep taking you to the App Store . Pity, it would probably be a good game otherwise. I have fallen into the trap with another game of paying for no ads then continuing to get the so not doing that..Version: 1.5.1

ADS, ADS, ADS, MORE ADS.Every button press causes an ad. Closing an ad will lead you to an ad. You have to watch an ad for every guess you make on a word. You have to watch an ad when you switch game modes. There is an ad at every corner of this app. It’s like having wet socks that never dry, it’s a nightmare. I didn’t even bother buying the no ads because other people have said that it does nothing. Please, dry these socks..Version: 1.11.2

DO NOT PAY TO REMOVE ADS - IT IS A FRAUDIf you pay to remove ads nothing changes - you still have to watch the ads and try to work out how to get through them to continue playing. I am unable to understand how such a blatantly dishonest theft of people’s money is tolerated on the Apple App Store. We are persuaded to allow Apple to limit our choices and restrict our behaviour within the ‘walled garden’ of the Apple ecosystem at least partly on the basis that we expect to be protected against scams like this. Sadly it seems this is yet another illusory promise that further weakens customers’ trust and confidence in the businesses they deal with..Version: 1.6.0

Far too many addsIt’s a good game that I enjoy, but there are just far too many adds for it to be playable. There is literally an add every time that u submit a word.Version: 1.11.2

Too many adsMy complaint seems to be similar to many others. There are just too many ads. I paid the 4.95…I think…to play add free as only a day in the ads were getting too much but it doesn’t seem to reduce the amount at all. Still so many annoying ads is ridiculous!!!!.Version: 1.13.0

Was fun…but keeps crashingThe game was fun and then the crashes started. I can play in tournaments and sometimes it will go fine. A month ago I was in a tournament and it quit responding all together and of course I then lost and was demoted. I contacted support and, after several days, they told me to shut off my phone. This worked but the no adds I purchased quit and I was again inundated with ads. Way too many ads, all the time. I told support and they said I would need to provide a receipt or pay again. Today I was in fourth place, several hours to go. I was making correct guesses but not gaining points. I shut off my phone several times but still won’t move up in points. I am now losing my position because others are able to play and gain points. I am tired of bugs like this and support that won’t fix or help. It is fun if/when it works..Version: 1.25.1

Too heavy on adsThis game lasted a lot longer than many of the games I've downloaded with as many ads. It's fun, if you like word games, but lately I've been getting hit with 3 unskippable ads just to play the 2 daily puzzles, and it's too much. Uninstalling. Edit: Purchasing the pro version does not eliminate the “optional” ads for the daily puzzles, as far as I know. I don’t mind ads, but 3 long ads for 2 little puzzles was more than I could bear. Take note you would have made more revenue off me with fewer ads. Removing a star for poor developer response in not recognizing these particular ads can’t be removed and that the issue was not that there are ads but that there are too many of them. I can’t see the cost right now because I uninstalled it, but I’m also pretty sure the “pro” version was more expensive than I was willing to pay, especially since it sounded like it didn’t include the daily puzzles..Version: 1.25.2

Doesn’t go ad-free after purchasePaid the $5 and still have ads. Look forward to my refund.Version: 1.4.2

Fun but ads are SO annoyingThe concept is fun and the game is well done. But the ads are popping up so often and are taking so much time they break the spirit of the game. I bought the game and ads keep coming. Misleading. Stay clear of this version..Version: 1.12.2

Deleted after one hour, one gameI don’t mind the odd bit of advertising to help support an app that has found a balance between entertainment value and the right amount of advertising necessary to support a “free” app. This app failed to find that balance. Every time you choose any option from the main menu, you have to sit through 30-60 seconds of advertising. Every time. Did I mention it is every time? Deleted..Version: 1.12.2

Love the game, but the point system and ads are awfulI love playing Wordle, but the two things that have gotten worse as this app has grown is: 1. Number of points rewarded for correct guesses on the daily Wordle. It has gone down for no reason at all. 2. The number ads are ridiculous. Having to watch an ad before playing the daily Wordle, and then also after a correct guess when playing in a tournament is too much. The ads also contain UX Dark Patterns (ex. hiding a white colored close “x” button on a white background) or no close button at all, which has caused me to lose my streak of points when playing in a tournament which is very frustrating..Version: 1.26.1

Annoyed! Wasted money.Paid for ad free but still gets ads. Very annoying!!.Version: 1.10.0

AdsPaid to get rid of the ads and all it does is removes the banner ads, not the video ads between each game..Version: 1.12.0

This games takes the cakes for AdsI understand the need for adverts in a game. At the end of the day, this is how you make money. However the number of adverts is disgusting. They excessively interrupt gameplay, to the point that there’s more ads than gameplay. Why app developers need to be so greedy is beyond me. You have a great game concept here, but you’ve ruined it with the excessive ads..Version: 1.10.0

Gg too many adsReally fun and entertaining game and I understand the need for advertising revenue but I found it to be excessive.Version: 1.14.3

Really love this game but..Sometimes I try to play the game and it won’t let me no matter if I re start my phone or close the app the only way to get it working is to uninstall it then reinstall it I lose all my progress (high score of about 150) and it’s just a sucky bug hope it gets fixed soon.Version: 1.14.3

These ads are over the topEnjoy having to watch five minutes of ads to play two minutes of worldle - not. Maybe tell your advertisers that if I haven’t bought other crappy word games the first 30 times I have seen their ad that I am probably never going to buy them. And I am talking very long, drawn o …u….t ads that seem to drag in forever. They totally ruined the experience, which is why I am deleting your app..Version: 1.14.4

Beware of ad-maniaSo I understand that free apps need some form of revenue. But an advert after every turn is just annoying. Makes the game eat at the battery power of the phone, and patience. Such a shame as it has put me off the game entirely so not keen on buying the full edition. Note for the future… free games need to hook people, not send them running after 10 min!!!!.Version: 1.8.0

Update ruined the gameWhat used to be a fun and highly addictive game is now ruined by 3 adverts in a row every few games played. Not just any adverts, ones for other games on the App Store that you have to watch through to the end, waiting for the tiny cross to appear in the corner, then more often than not missing the tiny cross with your thumb and instead selecting that you want to download the app and so moves you to the App Store. Greed has evidently taken precedence over gameplay and user experience..Version: 1.4.1

Ok game ruined by adsThe adverts absolutely ruin this game. I appreciate that as I don’t want to buy the paid upgrade to remove them, it needs to be ad supported to allow the developers to make money - that is fair enough. However the sheer number and length of the adverts (and the fact that some play sound even if the game sound is turned off) is beyond irritating. In one game I had to sit through four adverts, one of which was over a minute long. Therefore would suggest sticking with alternative versions..Version: 1.13.0

Ads!!!Don’t bother paying to remove ads. I paid, every time I open I have to restore purchases and even though I’m careful not to touch double points earned because there’s an ad..I still have to wait for a 30-second ad to play! Exactly what did I pay for???.Version: 1.14.2

3 Ads every submitCouldn’t be bothered with the constant ads playing thru before you can skip. Takes you right off track with your thoughts. Then ya enter a word and boom another set of ads. Deleted!.Version: 1.6.0

Why the need for too long and so many adsToo many ads, also ads are about 2 minutes long, no thanks, an ad between each game is ridiculous 🤦🏽‍♀️.Version: 1.11.0

I DID like itStarted off great but now all I can play is the daily puzzle. Classic won’t let me enter letters for several days..Version: 1.14.2

AdsAds. Every. Five. Seconds..Version: 1.12.2

Could not play because all the adsThis game is actually fun and allows you to use your brain. I would have loved to continue playing, but there is literally an Ad after every single round and it is unrealistic to expect people to continue playing for free with that much interruption. The price to remove ads is excessive and it comes off as a very greedy money grab. Plenty of other similar free games with less ads..Version: 1.9.1

Racist word includedKeen to report this app on the basis of racist word being present, but can’t seem to be able to. Issue could be easily rectified (I’m assuming non-native English speaking developers might not realise the insensitivity in including such charged words, so I just wanted to flag it up and make them aware really, giving them an opportunity to remove the word). That problem aside, the game is way too tricky. It seems impossible to move on to level 2 without either being superhuman or to “share” to Facebook etc for extra points. Swiftly gave up and will remove the app..Version: 1.2

Way too many adsI’m all for apps putting ads to earn money but the shear amount on this app is ridiculous. A real shame because the app is nicely designed and fun but it feels like every 4-5 taps on your screen you then have to sit through 2x video ads plus an additional pop up one. It’s very frustrating..Version: 1.9.1

Needs accessibility featuresThis is a fun concept, but it’s marred by a few glaring design oversights. the most major issue for me is the font- the stylized bubbly letters are very difficult to tell apart at times (particularly because they’re white letters on a pastel background) and that’s kind of a critical failure in a timed word-making game. it’s also intensely frustrating that you can’t reset your word by any means other than shaking the phone, which wastes a lot of time and is hit or miss in terms of whether or not it even works. you can also reset your word by completing it, but the letters don’t return to their original spots- they get placed in random spots. there is also a noticeable input lag, but that might be a result of my iphone 6S’s performance being crunched by apple as they breathe down my neck about upgrading, so i’d be curious to know if others with newer models encounter this issue. the last issue is the lackluster dictionary. many common words have been rejected and it makes for an incredibly frustrating play experience. overall, this game has a lot of potential, but in its current form, it’s not very fun..Version: 1.2

WordleLove this game but the ads are just brutal. Had to delete it..Version: 1.14.4

SCAMThis game is not the real Wordle and is scamming by “removing ads” at a cost than doesn’t remove ads, not impressed!!!!.Version: 1.12.2

AdsI only played this game for 2 minutes before Ad came on. OK except I could not get rid of it. Only option was to install , no X, swiping down did no work, no time bar at bottom. So installed on iPad, same thing except only got one minute of the game. Swiping screen eventually cleared it. Played game one more minute and new Ad came on, which again did not eventually clear. So have had to endure 3 Ads with no stop /end button, to play for 3 minutes. No way could I get hooked on this game enough to pay for Ad Free. I’ll going back to my other word game..Version: 1.5.1

TpsidipaigonnSolve this title - it’s free from ads and won’t cost you anything. I initially liked the game, but the number of ads were so distracting that I couldn’t fully enjoy it. For example, when an ad started while I was on a timer and in the middle of solving a word, my concentration disappeared, my frustration heightened and by the time the game restarted, my patience was practically depleted. I did continue to complete the game but timed out because my mind was more on my emotions than on the game. If you don’t mind paying for the “no ads” app, then you may have a better experience. I don’t pay for my apps because I usually have enough tolerance to suffer through the number of ads. But this app, along with others I’ve deleted for the same problem, was beyond my tolerance levels. Funnily some of the ads during my Wordle game were for apps I’d previously deleted. Same developer??.Version: 1.11.2

Updated review for Ad free versionI originally gave Wordle a 1 star review and complained that after purchasing the Ad Free version, the game was much less appealing. You need to pay 150 coins per word to play any previous day’s words (300 coins per day). You also have to pay 150 coins if you do not guess the word in 6 tries. You will quickly run out of coins playing in this mode. Updated Review: First I increased my review to 2 stars because the Wordle support team has been very responsive. Working with them and then Apple, I was able to receive a refund for the Ad Free option. Although I received a refund the game is still in Ad Free mode which requires all the coin charges. I find it hard to believe they cannot reverse the feature once it has been purchased. I enjoyed the game very much and was not bothered by the ads before purchasing the Ad free version. I only purchased the upgrade to reward the developers. If it is truly impossible to revert my game back to the ad supported version, a solution would be for them to add an option to watch an ad or pay the coins in the ad free version. If I can get back to the ad supported version, I would give them 5 stars..Version: 1.25.4

Wordless - way too many adsLove the game, but too many ads that take a bit to back out of or close. Ended up deleting the app on frustration!.Version: 1.11.0

Bad layout and too many adsThere’s a button in classic mode that solves your current puzzle for 200 coins, and apparently they decided the best place for it was directly below the backspace button, so it’s very easy to hit accidentally. Suddenly instead of clearing some letters you’ve just spent 200 of you hard won game currency to skip this puzzle and how the heck did they decide that was a smart place to put that? (Jk obviously they put it there so we’d unintentionally spend too much gold and would then want to replace it by purchasing some more). Ads are expected with a free game, so I thought I knew what I was signing up for. But it’s not just ads between games, it’s also ads every few guesses, ads if you have the app minimized for too long, ads to get extra coins, and oh look more ads. Many of them have fake exit buttons so instead of getting back to your game you’ve actually selected the ad and it’s opening some sketchy website in your browser..Version: 1.15.0

Ads are a bit excessiveI know you need ads , does there need to be soooooo many tho? Has put me off.Version: 1.5.1

Calm down with the adsThis is a basic game where you have six attempts to guess a word, and I find it pretty fun. I want to rate it higher, but there is absolutely no reason there should be an advertisement after every two guesses! Not to mention, the sheer amount of ads makes it actually beneficial to close and reopen the game every time one pops up. I understand wanting an ad after each round maybe, but not three per round, that’s absolutely obscene. There’s been multiple times that I would forget a word I was gonna guess because an ad popped up and took 15 seconds to close, and other times where the game straight up crashed because it couldn’t load an ad. Yes, you’re offering the game for free and that comes with ads, I get that, but at some point it’s infuriating and incentivizes the average person to delete your app in exchange for another, and considering this is a fairly common game of which multiple apps exist to play, I see zero reason to use your app over any of the others..Version: 1.9.1

Regret!Paid for this because I love word games and the trial was pretty cool, but still get adverts for their games that won’t go away and I have to shut the game down. Wish I could get my money back..Version: 1.7.0

WordleToo many ads with the free version.Version: 1.9.1

Ads are Excessive!Developers: sit up and listen to what everyone is saying and please make changes!!!! The ads are ridiculously long and way too frequent in comparison to other games. In particular the Homescapes one which comes up most frequently and is extremely long. I’d never install Homescspes because of their very annoying ads. Also the gambling ones, same thing..Version: 1.14.4

UNSOLVABLE GAMEI played 5 games on this App. Apart from the ridiculously long and plentiful ads, I found on the 5th game that there was no solvable word! I had 4 of 5 correct in position and tried every other possible letter for the 5th and every possibility I tried, it stated that it wasn’t a word (I agreed). Unsolvable games is ridiculous in such an app. So I can only think that it’s aim is to get you to buy coins to help and get sucked into the adverts. Shame … would have been good otherwise. Would not recommend it at all..Version: 1.8.0

Paid to remove ads and still ads!!! 😡PUT IN A SCAM REPORT AND ASK FOR A REFUND!! You can do this via the App Store!! This app has a Huge number of intrusive ads, so I paid to be ad free and I still get ads that are really hard to exit from. Really annoying!!! I suspect from looking at the many of the 5 star reviews that they are all a “paid for review/stars” campaign, as many look like they are by ESL, and are very brief. Be interesting to see if they all came from the same county?.Version: 1.14.0

Why bother?I get that the free version you have to have ads, but honestly, each advert lasts so much longer than any opportunity you have to play. If the adverts were shorter and less frequent I would have kept the app and even tried some of the other games, but it’s just too, too annoying. Even the pay for site (according to other reviews) is interrupted - so why bother? Oi Designers! ads are to help you generate profitability, by making the ads so long, repeated and annoying, you’re not helping your advertisers - you’re just killing your market - bye! Btw - if you’re looking for the free daily one everybody is talking about it’s on the Wall Street journal WSJ website - don’t bother with the app!!!.Version: 1.10.1

Ads ads ads ads. Where is the game?All this app is designed to do is get revenue from Ads, and con people out of $5 to get rid of them The game is fun, when you get a chance to play. Anytime I try to play the daily challenge, I have to watch a 30 sec Ad first. There is also an Ad between every game… I might have paid the $5 to remove Ads if I could have at least SOME kind of uninterrupted time playing, before getting an Ad. As it is I play one game then manually shut down the app when the ad starts. I won’t pay the $5, to get rid of ads, because I simply can’t get a feel for the game with them there. The developers have no concept of gameplay/ad balance. Developers: No amount of contacting support is going to alter the ad/game ratio. I’m not going to give you my email to sell and/or send me even MORE ads for your ad infested products. That’s a greater waste of my time..Version: 1.26.0

Not worth all the adsOverkill on the ads. You can’t even complete a game without multiple adds popping up to watch. Not worth it..Version: 1.14.3

Was great until updateThis app was a lot of fun, with enough challenges and goals to keep you returning every day. Ad supported, so you knew you were going to get those unless you paid to remove ads. I don’t have a problem with that. You used to be able to replay a daily challenge by watching an ad, or continue your tournament streak by watching, as well. UNTIL NOW. Now, all the things you could do by watching an ad all cost 150 coins. I understand making money through ad sales. I also understand in-game currency as a business model. But now the developers want both. And it feels like a greedy cash-grab. A shame, because it was enjoyable enough to play daily before this new update. I’ll be deleting the game now. Oh, fyi - I’m the kind of player that DOES purchase something every month to help the developers on a game I enjoy and play daily. But this is just greedy. And no fun. Sad..Version: 1.26.0

Great game, too many adsI’ve never written a review on and app before, but I have also never come across a game that has so many ads! Yes, I know you can pay to remove them, the app is free and they need to make a profit, but sometimes it’s like you submit one word and ad, submit another word and then ad! Awesome game, but more ads than game unfortunately..Version: 1.9.1

Too many adsWould be a great game if we weren’t interrupted every 30 seconds for an ad. Throws the excitement right out the window..Version: 1.12.2

Great idea, ruinedWhy would anyone go through the time and trouble of making a game, a good game at that, and then ruin it by throwing in so many ads you can’t enjoy playing it. The actual gameplay is fine. Only thing I would change is not using words with letters that repeat-They can be annoying and there are enough words in existence that you don’t have to use them. Also, why are coins being collected, and extras available to buy, when there is nothing to do with them? The ads though, ruin any chance of liking game. I fully expected and would accept an ad after each round; but after every two or three guesses is completely ridiculous. Will prolly play for a week or so, get sick of ads and move to another game just like it, but hopefully fewer ads..Version: 1.12.0
