Wordscapes for Negative User Reviews

Pornographic AddsMale enhancement products adds are inappropriate for a game app. Uninstalled..Version: 1.8.1

Creators never owned a dictionaryThe amount of words that you get ripped off of is unbelievable!! The ads are enough to throw your phone, have to play with data off. This games horrible use of using as example 4 words and then literally just pluralizing said 4 words to make it the rest of the puzzle, yet I can get 9 or 10 extra words without plurality and that’s if they count words that do exist. Easy brain waste to play but if your easily frustrated with bs….warning.Version: 1.22.1

Stop making “chemo” obligatoryThis is the 8th time I’ve contacted support. The word “chemo” is obligatory to pass the level. PUT IT INTO BONUS, PEOPLE DONT NEED TO BE REMINDED OF THEIR ILLNESS..Version: 1.16.0

The ads are locking the game and/or can’t be exited easily. The game is spoiled completelyThis puzzle game has been ruined by ads. These either freeze the app, lock it completely or have up to 3 exit screens. The frequency of these ads is extremely too high as you progress through the levels. There is no longer any relaxing pleasure (previously enjoyed) when using the app, it’s now just continuously frustrating. If the aim is to force users to pay a fee to stop the ads, it has failed. There is a choice not to use it at all..Version: 1.17.0

Good Game But…..I like the game but too many ads. I’ve had to delete the app and reinstall hoping I can get on with the game. Agree with another review sometimes you can’t get rid of the ads and when that is the case I shut the game down and leave it for a day or so. If it continues I’ll delete the app for good just can’t be bothered with it..Version: 1.22.1

Don’t play this game using multiple devices!I’m just so fed up with the errors in this game! Why can’t they figure out how to keep the coins and helps consistent across devices like other games are able to do? It’s been so frustrating since I had to delete the game from my iPad and reinstall it. Support was actually very good initially in helping me get my stuff back, but when they tried to correct it for me, that’s when it went haywire on me. They gave me too much, so I was being nice and honest by asking them to correct it, but then they ended up deducting from the wrong device, leaving me with a measly 17 coins while the other device had over 2M coins! Does that even make sense?!? I’ve been asking them to fix it, even shutting off my phone every night, but now suddenly, they’ve gone all silent on me and not responded to a single one of my requests! The guy Kenny told me he had to hurry up and fix it for me since he could only do a minimum amount of adjustments, but is it my fault he messed it up so badly? It’s so frustrating, so I don’t even want to play anymore, except to help out my team because they’re a great group of people. I would highly recommend NOT PLAYING THIS GAME ON MULTIPLE DEVICES AND DEFINITELY DON’T DELETE IT WITHOUT TAKING A PIC OF WHAT YOU HAD. So frustrating!.Version: 1.19.3

More levels and a better dictionary requiredI love this game but the one thing that seriously irritates me is the limited range of words that can be accepted. You accept words and slang like “thru” but won’t accept actual words like “lisle”. Unsure why you’re using wiktionary as your basis instead of something like scrabble dictionary or an actual proper dictionary. As I’m fast approaching the end, would appreciate more levels being added and different words, I’m seeing recycled words and puzzles and scapes as well which is disappointing. Good things about this game: do love the music, love the concept (combo of boggle and crosswords), love coins per bonus word, love the tournaments, love the shuffle being free..Version: 1.0.61

Hate Star Rush - please removeHate star popped up and eating away my coins …. 3 min time limit is horrible …time ticking away…please remove it and I will update the rating..Version: 1.22.1

Asset stealerEveryone knows the value of personal data. This game is designed to steal yours and your contact’s data. Don’t be fooled. The pretence is that you get free coins for... then once you give your data or your friend’s details, or money, it THEN provides extra terms that you’d probably NOT agree to (but it’s too late) or, it’s in the hands of a 3rd party to do a whole heap of stuff before you’d get any coins. Don’t be a fool. If you love this sort of game I strongly suggest trying a reputable developer not one that is in the game of stealing data and money under false pretences. I asked directly about this theft, funny, no response. If they want to cheat, here are cheat notes, to get around ads open a game when the ads starts, just double click on home button & reopen again and the game will start without having to sit through very long ads..Version: 1.0.53

It’s okay...It is an okay app so far. Starts off WAY to easy, but I guess that’s probably so that anyone can play, even young kids. It has far too many 3 letter words for my liking. It probably gets harder eventually, but till that point, it is a bit boring for me. I have two other qualms. The first is that there are legal words that the game doesn’t accept. If you do come up with a word that was not chosen for the crossword, it counts as a “bonus word” (which adds to your total to be able to later use for hints, which is a good idea). However, there are valid words that the game doesn’t accept. I can’t remember all of them right now, but some are “alee” and “luged”. They accepted “luge” just fine, so I have no idea why the past tense in “luged” would be an issue. The other main issue that annoys me is the frequency of the ads. I’ve played other games that have ads before, and I understand that’s how free games supplement their income in order to give us the content in the game. However, the frequency of the ads is the issue in this game. By far the most frequent ads I’ve ever seen. Sometimes have to deal with an ad every two minutes or less, if I finish the crossword quickly, which is ridiculous. At least you can X out of the ads fairly quickly. Still, having ads that often is annoying..Version: 1.0.55

Ruined the gameWas forced to update only to find that the game has now been ruined. It’s overrun with ads after every single level, including when you exit and then return to the app. You also need to watch the ad in order to even save your progress. It also reuses words over and over. I’ve been playing this game for 5 years now and I will now be deleting it..Version: 2.5

Animal update was final strawIn spite of overly aggressive ads, I kept the game. But this latest update with animals is not Wordscapes or even a word game. Also, the update zeroed out my coin stash (had about 2300 couns) and my other collected bonus items (rockets, targets, and such). Basically it started me over on a game I had no desire to play (animals). Not wanting to start over is the only reason I keep the game. Now I have no reason to keep the game, I finally deleted it. Actually feel pretty good about it. Previous review: Aggressive Ads kill game Ads load when game loads and sometimes game freezes and never finishes loading. Ads load in background while playing and game freezes multiple times for several seconds each. Ads load at end of round and transitions between round to ad or ad to round freezes. And the whole time, my phone heats up and battery drains very, very fast. Sometimes it’s so bad, I double press my home button (iPhone 7) to swipe close the game and nothing happens. I have to do it a couple times before it will open the screen to swipe close. It’s like the processor is busy in a loop and can’t escape. If you go into airplane mode, none of this happens and the game is entirely playable and enjoyable. To be clear, I don’t mind ads for a free app but they should not try to take over my phone and kill my battery..Version: 2.0

Frustrating - but not in a good way!Having really enjoyed this app for over a year I have decided to write a review The concept is good and the bonus features made it worth playing - until now. For me the butterfly event is almost impossible to enjoy because it now takes around 80 cocoons to get just one butterfly. That’s about 3 full rounds of 16 games which takes me about an hour to complete (I seem to recall that when I first started playing it only took a few games to get a butterfly). As for the ‘binocular’ game, it should only take 4 or 5 games to get a ‘box’ but I’m finding that more often than not the binoculars are not being added to my tally and on some occasions are even changing the total to a lower tally! I could live with that when it happens occasionally but sometimes it happens several times in one ‘box’ session thus taking up to 7 or 8 games to complete. I tried contacting the developer some time ago but did not receive a a satisfactory response. I have tried updating the app and making sure my iPad has the latest build but all to no avail. A good app which for me has lost its appeal..Version: 1.23

Used to be goodAbsolutely hate the latest update with all the add ons. It used to be about making words. Too many distractions. Deleting..Version: 2.5

Allowing team members the privilege to bully playersThis game was a lot of fun until we encountered OldFarts. The team choked all the fun out of the game. Because they are allowed to bully players within the design of the chat. This team is allowed to single out players based on the player’s level of points. Also they force you to use the chat. The team claims to be looking to for players to chat and enjoy tournaments. No. You are required to chat and play ever weekend for hours and hours. The designers should consider offering a delayed start feature for tournaments that is separate from chatting. That way players don’t have to talk to the bullies when they want to play. The delay start feature should be available for top players to choose the length of the delay. I didn’t report the team OLDFARTS because they have the platform on their side of the situation. I have deleted the app/ game because this team ruined the fun of a GAME. I have a job and playing on a team & tournaments should be fun. I’m done spending my money to play a game with a design flaw that allows forced participation. You can’t join a successful team without being subjected to the high level players whims..Version: 1.23.6

Can’t Sync Between DevicesThe concept of the game is easy enough... and if you have a decent vocabulary, the game itself is too easy. I’m nearly to level 300 and have barely had to pause to think about it. Definitely not challenging so far. My biggest issue is I can’t sync between my phone and iPad. I contacted customer support and was initially pleased by the quick response. Unfortunately, they keep forwarding my responses to another person, so I’ve spoken to 4 different people even though person 2 explained they’d just do a manual reset or something that never happened. Person 4 goes “Are you trying to sync them to the same FB account?” What??? Why would I be confused about it not going to the correct level if it wasn’t even the same account I was syncing them to?? I finally said never mind because no one from their support team has helped me over the past week and apparently they can’t bother to even read what my complaint was in the first place. Yes, they answer the same day, but every day it’s a new person and you’ll be explaining your problem over and over! And it’s emails! They can’t communicate? So all in all, pretty easy game and decent time killer... just can’t get the game to sync between my phone and iPad. 2 stars because the last two emails I got from them are utterly ridiculous. I paid to remove ads and regret the fact their company got my few dollars..Version: 1.5.1

Love the game itself but there are many issuesI love this game and play it often. However, there are many things that could be improved. For instance, the dictionary of words this app uses is strangely inconsistent. The game allows you play certain slang/abbreviations such as ‘exec’ and ‘repo’ but there is no reliability about these types of words. The word ‘cred’ is not valid, for example. I don’t understand how they decide which informal/improper words are allowed and which aren’t. Also, the word ‘verde’ is playable but ‘bleu’ is not. ‘Yin’ is valid but ‘yang’ is not. My biggest problem with this app is the fact that I have paid actual money so that I don’t get ads, but despite that fact, I still get banner ads on the bottom of the screen constantly. There is always an ad there and it often features flashing/distracting imagery or contains inappropriate themes. When I paid to get rid of ads, I paid to get rid of all ads. There was never any clear statement that paying to remove ads would only work for pop ups. This is extremely misleading and unfair. It is unacceptable to provide the option of paying legitimate currency to go ad-free and then not fulfilling that promise. Ad-free means ad-free. I have reached out to Wordscapes customer service several times about this matter and have been ignored every time. At this point, I want a refund if they’re going to keep putting advertisements in when I’ve specifically paid money to avoid that..Version: 1.23.3

Fun at first but getting repetitiveEnjoyed the game for the first few weeks but finding in not enjoying it as much. So many three and four letter words repeated over and over again. There seems to be a limit to the vocabulary. So many vague words’ that nobody has heard of and lots of slang and words that aren’t proper words. I mean really? Duh? Aha? Aah? They aren’t words. And what happened to the rest of the English language? Did you get a half price special on words? Only bought half of the language? Seriously guys it’s getting monotonous. Up to 5000 games and still getting 5 second 5 word games. I think the developers and getting lazy so they can keep adding new levels. Losing the desire to play.Version: 1.11.0

MisleadingSo, in this post-fact world the advert says you’ll learn to read faster and improve your vocabulary. I haven’t seen any evidence that spelling words from a collection of letters helps one read faster. Logic tells me it doesn’t. Perhaps they could cite some studies. My bigger issue is that it’ll improve my vocabulary. That’s hogwash. Central to ALL vocabulary instruction, starting in kindergarten, is definitions. This game does nothing to promote improvement in my usage of the words contained in it. Moreover, the game is all about building words from letters THAT YOU ALREADY KNOW. How does recalling words I’ve seen and used many times before, then provide no definition or context in which said word is used, help my vocabulary skills? I’ve waisted too much time playing this thing, hoping that I’d eventually get to the “lexicon” level which would grant me the amazing fluency and word knowledge advertised. But alas, the game doesn’t appear to have that...it’s basically Boggle that can be played at a banana slug pace. This would be a four star review if they’d at least provide definitions (maybe they do with the paid upgrades?) and actually allow me to practice speed reading. Throw in the parts of speech and you’d have five star reviews all day long..Version: 1.2.1

GREEDY UPDATEThis is my favorite game and I spend hours playing. Via my friends in the tourney I recently learned the newest update TOOK OUT many words, real words, mind you, that had been rightfully added to an expanded dictionary several months ago. The reason: A money grab. Less bonus words equal less coins earned equals more people have to buy coins via the recently brought back “piggy bank”. I have this game on two devices, and I have paid for them both. I have not had to buy hints, as I didn’t need them. Then they introduced the tournaments where I use them frequently. Once I run through the coins I have accumulated, I WILL need to buy hints, thus giving the game some more revenue. That will likely be the case for many, many players! But instead they went for the easy money, and ticked off the most loyal, adoring players in the process. I'm fortunate I was warned NOT to update, but many people I care about had auto updates "on". Wordscapes, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more loyal player than me. But this new update is beyond the pale. It is "shameful", as one reviewer wrote. Kindly put the expanded dictionary back where it belongs, and KEEP the players that have supported you for a very long time, because I don’t know if they’ll stick around without you doing so..Version: 1.9.0

RepetitiveSame words repeated over and over make the puzzles all feel very similar. The developers have also repeated puzzles, puzzle names, puzzle wallpapers and bonus photos for the daily puzzles so I expect they're as bored with this app as I am. There seems to be sloppy updating going on. There are also too many American English words but no proper English equivalents e.g tire but no tyre, meter but no metre, too many slang words, too many non-words such as prefixes and stupid words like thou and hast that no one ever uses unless they're reading a bible out loud. The dictionary for the game needs to be trimmed of these olde worlde words and have some proper ones added. My interest was piqued slightly when I saw mention of the new Master levels, but they're exactly the same as all the other ones. Same puzzles, same words, still no more than 7 letters. Over and over and over again. Did I mention it's repetitive? As soon as I get to the end, which I can no longer see, I'll be deleting..Version: 1.0.61

Great game usuallyThis is a brilliant game, totally addictive and easy to play. The latest updates as of Oct 2021 have dramatically affected its performance to a sluggish buggy and unresponsive game sadly. This despite having a recent device with up to date system. Reported it twice but I’ve almost given up but this was a beautiful little game. Just let down by buggy update..Version: 1.19.0

Progress bar not movingOk who can i talk to about this app? I have a screenshot proof that the 30 min challenge for 400 coins is not possible and cheat. I have played it numerous times and each time I can complete 36+ rounds yet the progress bar always moves slow until the last few minutes for the time to run out. I have a screenshot where I did 4 rounds and the progress bar that goes around the circle has barely any progress, like I can barely even see it. So his means it’s impossible to win this challenge. I finished all rounds in under a minute, some took me even 10-15 seconds on some easier rounds and I timed it and each time I finish, I have 8+ less or more levels finished for the 30 minutes. Impossible and a waste of my 30 minutes. Don’t add challenges that just frustrate the player. We may end up uninstalling and playing something else. Also the polar animals or what’s it called, I have played numerous times and 2 of the animals I never get, I just keep getting the same ones every time I play that , impossible to get the narwhal. Ugh! I finished this entire app game years ago ~before they had these challenges. I came back to this. Maybe just Leave off this stuff and return to just having the Wordscapes ..Version: 2.4.1

Fun but app has some issuesPlease help fix the issue many of my teammates are having with the daily puzzles. They complete the daily puzzle, scoring three stars… but then only receive credit for 2 starts. That prevents them from completing all the animal frames for the month and receiving associated coins. The fact that it impacts daily play is frustrating. They’ve already submitted the issue for help within the app but no change. Otherwise, it’s fun and landscapes a really pretty. Not super excited with all the new animals, only because I like my view of the landscapes to be on every page, including the front page. It feels more like a kids game now. I also wish in tournaments, only those who participated in the tournament would receive a share of the prize coins. Inevitably a team will get people who join at the last minute, ride along w/out playing just to get some extra coins. It is a nice benefit that when you help others you score a coin. Thanks for creating and maintaining is fun game. It’s helpful to keep some minds active, learn new words or a great break from the day!.Version: 2.4.1

The game has become very flawed.As much as I enjoy this game, there are a few issues. The game is set up for the American version of English, so to me a lot of the words are misspelled. Many other words aren’t recognised. The game has become slow & unresponsive at times & I'm having to turn my phone off & back on to rectify this. Just doing this simple action takes several minutes because the game is slowing the entire phone down. The adverts are ridiculous! I found that it is quicker to close & reopen the game than it is to watch the adverts. Since yesterday, the adverts have evolved. They are bringing up an advert straight after the level has finished for iTunes. As soon as I go to swipe the screen or close the advert, I am immediately taken from my game & a new screen opens for the iTunes Store for the song that has been advertised. To try to get around this happening, I have turned my game off to play offline. The only problem is that when I finish my level, I’m not getting my coin reward for completing the level. This is totally unfair. I should be able to play offline & claim my coin reward for the level completion. Lastly, when there is an event I shouldn’t be force to compete against every other player. I should be able to opt out of playing them. I want this to be a relaxing game, not one where I’m forced to compete against everyone else..Version: 1.23

Fun gameGreat game challenging, fun and addictive. I would give it more stars but feel it’s not evenly played. My wife has been playing for months and her hints are 50 coins, I’ve been playing a couple months and enjoy the game but the hints on mine are 100 coins,the target hints 200 and rocket blast 300 totally bogus pricing. Before you say she’s at higher score(she is) I have a daughter, granddaughter and soninlaw that all signed up after I did and 2 of them at my recommendation and wait for it...... their hints are 50,100,150 coins. I’m not the only one this has happened to in the support section there are other complaints of the same thing. I sent an email to them with questions about this and I will say they answered rather quickly but with a crazy response of “we’re trying different pricing to see which we decide on.” What I got out of the answer was we think we can gouge some folks on the pricing so when they buy coins they get less benefit for the money they pay. I started with 2 stars but as I wrote this I down graded it go 1. Get your act together and I’ll revisit this review!!!!! Have talked to them thru emails 3 different times and each time it’s the same, ”we’re trying different pricing to see where it levels out, hmmm I wonder if they’ll refund the folks that bought hints and removed ads at the higher prices when they level out, hmmm NOT!!!!!.Version: 1.0.52

Annoying!!Downloaded this game for something different to do. Didn’t take long to get annoyed with the amount of ads in this game. And then the words, all similar. And words that i have never heard of that im sure are slang words or not even words. And then having a word then its plural like ok couldnt there be something better. I’m sure every level has basically the same words. So deleted it.!! To many ads, to repetitive. And frustrating more than anything such a shame!!.Version: 1.18.0

Waste of timeStarted playing the game, it could be a good and enjoyable game, but there are too many ads and if you want to play, you have to pay. I bought a piggy bank thinking it would be good, when the piggy bank filled up, you have to pay again to open it!!! Very disappointing. It is a pity that the creators were so greedy, it could be a good game if poor people could enjoy it too!.Version: 1.9.1

Good game but frustratingI love this game and play it all the time, although recently I have been playing it a lot less, the reason for which I will go into below. Recently, the game starts off ok, but after a few levels it becomes very slow and unresponsive, to the point where it is unplayable. It has also on several occasions frozen/bricked my phone meaning that I have to force a close down and on one occasion I couldn’t even do that and literally had to just leave my phone, with everything frozen, for over 2 hours until the battery ran out in order to get rid of it and actually be able to get rid of the issue and be able to use my phone again. This issue really needs sorting out as it is making what was once my favourite game completely unplayable..Version: 1.22.1

Daily PuzzleI have really enjoyed playing Wordscapes recently. I’m on level 152 and love the educational yet fun twist on the app, one of my favourite features on the app was the ‘Daily Puzzle’ because I could - to put it simply - do a different puzzle of varying difficulties each day however recently I haven’t been able to do the daily puzzle because every time I go on it, it just is frozen on the screen saying I have completed the puzzle already. It is also saying that it is August 31st however today (the day I’m writing this) is Monday the 13th of August. I’m annoyed at this bug/glitch because I love the daily puzzle. I really hope this bug is fixed. Other than that I think it is a great app. EDIT: I wrote this review earlier today and I have continued to have problems with the app. The daily puzzle is still not working insisting that it’s August 31st and that I have ‘already completed it’ this annoys me and I really hope it gets fixed in the near future!.Version: 1.0.48

Annoying!I have had this app for a long time and I used to enjoy it. Now when you complete a level you get 1 or 2 coins, to get a hint you need 100 coins, or you can pay for coins (get the picture)coins get taken from your tally for no real reason, and there is a thing called star rush which is annoying and completely confusing and the ads are excruciating, you don’t just have to watch the ads you then have click through 4 or 5 screens before it disappears and the x is so far to the right of the screen it sometimes thinks you have clicked the ad to get it and then you have to start the clicking through screens again. This game is completely ruined I will be looking for a different option..Version: 1.19.3

Disappointing updateI was forced to update to continue playing and discovered that the beautiful peaceful backgrounds I used to enjoy are now tainted by some other animation. I wish I had choice to go back to the previous version I had..Version: 2.5

Ridiculous amount of AdsFrustrating amount of ads.Version: 2.4.2

Used to be fun, too many ads since the updateThe game was great, but since the last update I get an add after every single round. It’s completely unplayable! I’ve spent loads of time and watched a ton of ads on this game over the years. I get that you need to make money, it’s just too bad you had to ruin a fun game..Version: 2.4.2

Do not trust - ignores your permissionsUnauthorised mobile data use! To get rid of ads in games like this, turn off mobile data to the app and play off WiFi. Simple right? HOWEVER, this app will randomly still pump in ads... some days it will, some it won’t. Play it on airplane mode... zero ads, so they’re not built in (excluding the ‘own brand’ apps, which are built in... I’m referring to 3rd party ads) Therefore the app uses your mobile data without permission. Original review: This is an extremely easy game. The only challenge is trying to decipher what rules it uses, because it doesn’t seem to know. Primarily it uses American spelling, but not alway (submitted both “favour” and “favor” in the same puzzle) My last puzzle had a word that when researched was Russian, or obscurely British. It uses weird abbreviations and slang, yet some really obvious words that are known worldwide aren’t valid. Basically, it’s a game where you just make up as many random words as you can until it decides they’re correct..Version: 1.1.7

Great ad platformI get to watch so many ads, and sometimes I even play a game! (Yes I know I can disable ads, but not for 10 bucks when I’m not sure I even want to keep playing). The ads are annoying as hell, sometimes I can’t tell how to dismiss them. That’s YOUR problem, not mine!.Version: 1.16.0

STUPIDDD🤬🤬🤬ITS DIGUSTING IT NOT ONLY SETS YOU TO UP TO FAIL BUT ITS A SCAM TOO!!!😡🤬😡 EVEN IF YOU GET IT RIGHT A MILLON TIMES IT SAYS YOUR WRONG THEN YOU HAVE TO USE 100 DOLLARS TO GET A HINT ITS SHOWS THE ANSERW YOUR WROTE AND ITS BURNS YOU BATTERY FASTER THEN A CHEETAH RUNNING TREADMILL!!!!.Version: 1.16.0

Not child appropriateHad a few words that were bad.Version: 1.9.0

Why change what wasn’t broken??I have been playing this game since 2020, everyday , and have always loved it, particularly the peaceful and calming photos both in the levels and in the Home Screen .I do the game to relax and calm my anxiety as well as to hone my anagram skills, which, by the way, have become so much stronger since doing this game. And the suddenly this evening, I’m confronted with a silly cartoon landscape and a childish picture of a fox and I’ve been forced to click on a load of stupid things I don’t want and the visuals have been ruined. What on earth are Wordscapes playing at? The level of vocabulary needed for this game, certainly in the higher levels where I am, is far beyond what a young child would enjoy or find accessible, so why the children’s game style? There are plenty of apps with stupid cartoon style graphics out there, why ruin our app? Us slightly more intellectual and serious adults deserve to be catered for too. I am angry and I am disappointed😡☹️.Version: 2.0

What a shameIt appears like all the other word games this one is absolutely full of Advertising! Ok so there’s an option to go Add Free but at the current so called sale price of £5.99 that’s hardly a “ sale “ But my biggest gripe is the Dictionary used to determine Word correctness and authenticity Of course it’s based on American English which is ok for the American users but is of no use to those like me that speak proper English it’s infuriating the amount of words that are being deemed “ incorrect “ it’s also extremely time consuming and is a disadvantage when in Competition Mode. After each level I am bombarded with Videos that could hardly be described as short. One after the other which disrupts the game flow. In order to completely dispense with Adds etc I suggest a price of £2.00 is appropriate. I would also like to see the adoption of a proper dictionary. I am not prepared to pay any sums to any of these Word Games on the App Store until I see a level playing field. It’s a real shame this game like others is being ruined by Advertising and also having so called “ celebrities “ shoved in my face. All my life I have ensured neither myself or family are subjected to anything connected with “ Celebrity “ I'm interested in none of them. There all useless planks. Regards H.Version: 1.24.2

Causes overheating and apps to crashThis game is very fun, I’ve played a total of over 5 hours and I checked my battery analytics seeing as how it’ll overheat/slow down my whole phone and I need to close it and let it cool before I can play again. It took up 74% of my battery life within the last 24 hrs. In comparison, I spent 4 hrs listening to podcasts, 2 hrs browsing the net, 2 1/3 hours listening to music and it only amount to only 19% of my battery life all together. This needs to be fixed, I’m unsure what causes it. I’ve turned off all sounds and such. My phone is up to date and it’s a fairly new phone. I’ve never had battery issues until now. I really enjoy this game, however, the battery drainage is just too burdensome plus the overheating..Version: 1.24.2

So badly optimised that it’s unplayableEven if you can get past the copious obnoxious ads for borderline-scams, the game is now so badly optimised for even my iPhone 7 that it freezes constantly. I’ll try to enter a word and it will either freeze mid-swipe or crash. An absolute drain on my battery too. Of course the ads run perfect each time, so it’s clear where the priorities lie. Good luck trying to press the pixel-sized “X” without launching the App Store or website because the game assumes you want to view it after accidentally pressing a space a millimeter to the side. Edit: Oh look, the app’s developers want me to do their job for them and identify which ads are the obvious scams. Yeah, sure, I’ll totally install this badly optimised mess and point out the painfully obvious when it isn’t freezing constantly. Sounds like a great use of my time..Version: 1.19.2

Riddled with adsI get that it is free, but this is too much. An ad after every single level is a bit ridiculous. If you are doing well you spend more time looking at ads than you do playing the game. There are better word games with less ads. Go play those. I shouldn’t HAVE to pay to get rid of ads, in order to make the game playable. If the developers read this. Every time I play this game I am putting airplane mode on as a middle finger to you. If it were more reasonable I would let the ads play. To their copy and paste response: no, there are ads to support the developers, and then there is your greed. There are plenty of games that do ads reasonably. Then there is this one, “make the game unplayable unless they pay to remove the ads”. This is just a review so people know they will be getting a crazy amount of ads, I will put it in airplane mode to avoid them, instead of paying for your “make the game playable” purchase, so you don’t make a cent off me. And others should do the same..Version: 1.11.0

Weekend Tournament ConcernsI’m a team leader on a team that has played several months in tournaments. I have played this word game for 18 months. Of late in the Tournament there are teams that are getting hard to believe high scores. This leaves me to believe we may have some bits in the system that are making this unfair for us human players. These teams need to be automatically disqualified from playing in these tournaments. Our team is feeling like why should we play if there is so much rampant cheating by other teams. I also think it would be wise to add incentives and rewarding those who have reached high levels in this game. Perhaps giving 100 coins for each 16 games you complete. They definitely become more challenging as you go up higher in levels. The game is fun snd I have made many new friends in my team. I’m always amazed at the number of legitimate words that are not accepted in puzzles or as bonus words. I’m also a little baffled at the editing of communications between team members. There are certain words that are starred out and those words are not offensive or slang words. Thank you for all you do and I hope all of these issues can be resolved or at least addressed so that all can enjoy this game!!.Version: 1.18.0

Racist to AsiansThe word Asia was not added as a bonus word even though i was able to spell it out.Version: 1.22.1

Boring repetition of wordsI’ve played this for some time now and I can’t believe how often the same words come round. It’s like they’ve only got 100 in the database and maybe another 100 using most of the same letters so I’m completely fed up of words that break down into ACNE/CANE, RACE/CARE, REAR/RARE, BEAR/BARE, RITE/TIER/TIRE, FORM/FROM/FOAM and on and on. Definitely not something you can play regularly because you get bored to tears. No challenge at all. Not to mention all the regular words you can find in any dictionary that this game says are invalid! Crazy. I’m done with it..Version: 1.19.3

Incredulous!The game starts off well (warning: it can be addicting), hence the one star rating. However, in later levels, the word library/algorithm/what have you was very selective in a double standard way, which was enough to turn me off this game for good! For example... Why is ‘nano’ (a scientific term) not considered a word when many other far more obscure scientific words are?! Why was ‘newt’ (singular) not considered a bonus word but ‘newts’ (plural) was?! Explain that to me! I will be deleting the game as these double standards have increasingly become very frustrating!!.Version: 1.0.59

Pointless rewardsThis is aimed at the developer really. So I’ve played the game for several years. Never have any issues with unresponsiveness as some have said and mostly enjoy it. The newer features introduced have been great and have kept my interest. What I do have an issue with is I play the game, open the boxes and find the portrait I have ‘won’ is the same as ones I already have. I open box after box and it’s the same thing. Yes you get a bonus box if you collect enough duplicates but when you open that, it’s another duplicate. It’s just boring. I get that you don’t want people to complete stuff straight away but I’ve opened about 30 of the current ‘season’ boxes and they contain a portrait I already have. It’s boring. I’d opt out of the portrait thing if I could. Once again, it’s boring!.Version: 2.13

..Same words over and over not a good game.Version: 2.4.2

It’s Okay…So, let’s start with the good. Wordscapes is a fun way to challenge your brain and learn new words. Also, you can guess wrong and/or incorrect words all the time. But, for me, that’s where the positives end. I know lots of people say this, but I’m going to it again. The game uses words over and over and over again. I can’t tell you how many time I’ve gotten the word “emu” in this game. This doesn’t add to my vocabulary, if I have seen it over and over again. In the game, the “hints” are 100 coins, and bull’s-eyes are 200 COINS!? Like, for ONE letter it cost the same amount of TWO letters? You might as well save up for the “rocket” option at this point. My other complaint is the chat systems of the teams. I was once on a team and inappropriate things were said, and SEVERAL people reported the messages and had them removed, yet that person was never kicked or removed from the team? Like, they should be removed at the FIRST report, wether the team leader reported them or not. TLTR: Great idea, but the repeated words, having to spend to many coins on hint, bull’s-eyes, rockets, and the chat systems, it just not okay. Overall, a game I would not recommend. 😐.Version: 1.16.0

Skip itNot very polished and makes my phone heat up a lot.Version: 2.4.2

Not HappyThere are issues with the game that others have outlined in detail - the basic nature of the vocabulary and the lack of recognition of some pretty standard usage words and the inclusion of non-words, the ridiculous “piggy bank” which stockpiles “coins” you’ve earned through playing but cannot access without paying (outrageous!), etc. But the thing that made me delete the game was the tourney this past weekend. I had forgotten to play until later on Saturday, played for awhile on Sunday then had things to do. When I remembered and checked about an hour after the tourney ended, I was pleased to see my beautiful new crown and that I had finished in second place which is where I’d been pretty much for the time I’d played on Sat and early Sun. Imagine the disappointment on Monday when I went in to play and suddenly my new crown was gone and another player was now listed in 2nd place with 3 or 4 more points than I had. It’s a silly thing perhaps, but it’s a digital game and scores are tabulated by computer so there’s no way a score can change unless it’s deliberately changed and not earned. It was the final straw of frustration before the camel walked away rather than have its back broken..Version: 1.9.1

WordscapesNice!!.Version: 1.0.8

I’m Giving UpI am addicted to word games and have quite a few of them on my phone. I have decided to delete this one, however, because it is so frustrating. Even though I have contacted the developers twice with questions, the answers I got did not resolve the issue nor actually answer my specific question. Also, the few directions that are available are confusing, especially when dealing with tournaments. Some issues: I will input the same word several times during the course of one game and it is not accepted, and then all of a sudden it is. And basic everyday words are not accepted in some games but are in others. They will allow the word “can” but not “canned”, as in canned vegetables. It’s totally frustrating, and I keep shaking my head and wonder why I’m wasting my time. But not any more. On to more satisfying pursuits in the world of words. Add the fact that you have to watch an ad after every game, Wordscapes is not worth my time. A note to users who choose to keep playing this inferior game: after you play a game and the ad pops up, shut the game and then come right back to it and you avoid having to watch the ad, many of which repeat with irritating regularity..Version: 1.10.0

Scores are rigged and wrongI play the daily puzzle every day and have noticed that the addition of points earned is all wrong. For example today I earned the full 3 points for completing the puzzle yet only 2 points were added to my total! This has been the case for almost every day this month. At this rate I won’t complete the final picture to add to my collection by the end of the month. Come on guys, be fair, if points are earned thy should be counted. Before this I would have probably given a heighten rating, but this cheating of your customers doesn’t deserve it. FIX IT PLEASE!.Version: 2.2.1

Used to be goodThis game used to be very entertaining and I enjoyed playing it regularly. I don’t even mind the longer ads as that is something that I’m used to with free games. I stopped playing for a while and came back to it recently. The issue that I have is the pop up ads that appear nearly full screen during a level. I had 6 ads pop up while doing the daily puzzle within the space of 2 minutes, the last of which bugged out the game as it was while I was pressing letters and now the “cursor” is stuck on a letter and I can’t press anything. Twice this has happened to me now and I have to close the game and reopen it. What a shame that heavy monetisation has become more important than a well functioning game. I’m giving 3 stars as the gameplay itself is good, would have given 5 if you hadn’t broken it with excessive ads..Version: 1.10.0

Game is Great - Up until I got charged $20The game is absolutely great. Very accommodating and even has a dictionary for you to learn the words. However, the Ads were just plain annoying after level 80 because that’s when you want to get as many stars as possible for the competition. So this is where I thought I’d fork out $5 to pay for no Ads... but then I kept getting declined and declined, even though I had $10 on my card to make the payment... so I thought okay I’ll put $50 on the card, ONLY TO BE CHARGES $20!!!!! Why am I forming out an extra $15?! Please explain and please reimburse me for my $15 when you advertise in your In-Game store that it’s only $5..Version: 1.0.58

Too many ads & confusing bitsI don’t mind a few ads every now and then but, as others have said, there are WAY too many ads, they are too intrusive & some ads you can’t get rid of unless you get out of it & go back in. Why keep so many ads when numerous people have mentioned uninstalling it because of this (as I am going to do after this review)? You’re just driving people away! If you had fewer ads you would have more views through more people keeping the app. I also hated when one time (I’m uninstalling at level 12) there were boxes at the side & I couldn’t move on unless I tapped on them and wasted my ‘money’ earned in what was a completely pointless exercise! Could be a great app as the little games are cool but currently really bad!.Version: 1.9.1

Obnoxious Frequent AdsThere are ads at EVERY opportunity. Swipe down to check the time…. An ad will play. Click a message to see what someone has said….. ADS…………AD NAUSEAM! Despite several hundred levels in it is being uninstalled and banned from my phone to banish the ads. I also don’t like a company that doesn’t take responsibility for the kinds of ads on its platforms, including fraudulently deceptive ones and flashing ones that can harm vision or bring on a seizure!.Version: 2.5

Updated review. I no longer even like this game.3/3/22 - I used to love this game, but things have changed to the point where I no longer want to play. As you can see from my previous review, the ads were not frequent, so I was ok with them because the devs deserve to be paid for their time. Since then, the ads have become more frequent over time until they’re now after every puzzle and it’s usually 2 ads. Plus, they have a button where you can watch more ads for extra rewards, so the frequent ads are ridiculous to have to put up with. The mini contests are no longer any fun at all because of the ads. My 5 star review is changing to a 2 because it’s so irritating to play now. The only reason I’m giving them a 2 is because of the quality of the graphics. If it wasn’t for that, I wouldn’t give them any stars. Most game apps like this either bore me with using the same words repeatedly or else they suffocate me with billions of ads every few seconds. This game does neither. The words are varied, even though I disagree with some they buzz on, but it’s probably the fact that I am 60 and use older words than the devs or from wherever they obtain their list. While there are ads, they are not super frequent and they are not horrible. I have not had any issues with this game at all..Version: 1.21

I can’t wait for 75,000 reviews and it was relaxing! Anyways I’m the 74,996th reviewerIt was so relaxing.Version: 2.4.2

Too many adsThe amount and length of the ads are ridiculous The ads are taking the fun out of my the game. They are annoying, time consuming and plug up the game There are ads after you complete every puzzle. Most of the ads are now a minute or more, as a lots of the ads go into 3 segments I’m thinking about deleting due to the time consuming ads.Version: 2.4.2

WordscapesWordscapes is a good game I’ve played it for a while now and am up to level 340 but there is only two words left and I can’t get the four letter one but there is a three letter one that I know what it is but every-time I type it into the game it tells me that the level I’m on doesn’t have any three letter words please fix this mistake cause I cannot continue my game otherwise it is a good game..Version: 2.11

Enough is enoughThe current Star Rush is just demeaning, can bring on anxiety in slower players who can’t complete a puzzle in the allotted time. It takes far too long to get to the next puzzle, making much slower progress and less stars accumulated for tourneys. It just doesn’t slow down faster players… it slows down ALL players!!! So really what is the point of it? To get people to spend their coins to keep their star count up with bonus’s then spend real money to buy more coins when they run out…. There may be gullible people out there who will fall for that but the smart ones will give the game the flick and go elsewhere. Peoplefun… your IT wizards need to realise the consequences of all changes before applying them..Version: 1.19.0

Bugs and adsUsed to like it. Now the app shows way too many ads, after every level. Then the bugs: words that truly exist - the app is considering wrongly non existent. The stars you’re earning are being discarded. The list goes on. Verdict: the app creator needs to focus on improving the game experience. By the looks of it, the greed has a higher priority. Edited a week later: the developer’s only response to negative reviews, by the looks of it, is that you can remove ads forever by simply paying once for it. Same copy/paste developer response. Hey, Mr. Developer, how about fixing bugs that people are annoyed with? How about stopping mid-game ads? How about fixing crashes and other bugs? Just like I said: greed. Final edit: the developer doesn’t react to criticisms. Bugs persisting. Deleted the app: there are much better alternatives..Version: 2.2.1

Terrible Game Plagued by AdvertisingDo not download this game! I do not mind advertisements and I understand that a company needs them. This game is totally different! The ads load as a bar across the bottom of the screen. They lock up the game totally and intermittently as ‘something’ is loading in the ad. It’s not once or twice and done. It is continuous! What a piece of junk!!.Version: 1.17.0

What happenedThis game is great to relax to and play because of so few adds. The game play is mainly smooth some slowness here and there. I love how you also don’t get 100 and per minute! The add time I think is great and their not after every level too. My BIGGEST problem is that randomly out of no where my screen will freeze and I can’t do anything! I can turn it off, get calls or texts, or go to the home page! My phone won’t even turn off! The screen just gets dim. You will still hear that someone is calling texting but it won’t show up. I’ve tried all the tips and tricks to when your phone screen freezes, but they won’t help. It’s best to not do anything and wait patently for your phone to die. It’s happens out of no where usually when you are going to a next level or you’ve been in one for a while. This has happened twice and you can’t do anything until your phone dies. This has only happened within this app and no where else on my phone! This should really be checked out. Like I said, there’s nothing you can really do when this happens. It’s supper annoying and frustrating. Other than that this game is great! Hopefully this hasn’t happened to anyone else while playing! I was really getting into the game when this started to happen and I had to delete the game. Someone fix this please!.Version: 2.1.1

The Ads You Run Are Creepy, Sexist & DisgustingCurrently on your app there is an ad for a game about a woman losing custody. You know kids play this game and this is disturbing. Also this was not the only creepy ad you allow on your app. I’m done with this creepy company..Version: 1.13.1

Ads are inappropriateToo many ads that make you wait an inordinate length of time and an ad about ‘King’s Choice’ where he chooses a half naked girl for his pleasure. What is wrong with you?.Version: 1.23

Forced to download this horrible AppWhile playing other games that have persistent adds, this WordScrapes app keeps on popping up. Most apps that pop up regularly, you can dismiss and get rid of them, simply by clicking on the X at the top of the page and they disappear…….. Not this WordScrapes app, it stays on screen with No apparent facility to get rid of it. No X to click on???? …….. It just stays there forever??? Eventually you are forced to have to download this horrible WordScrapes app, in order to play the game app that you are want to play……. When I did eventually have a go at this WordScrapes app, it just kept on freezing on screen. So I deleted it straight away……. I thought that would be the end of it!….. Oh NO!….. After I deleted the WordScrapes app, and started playing my other favourite app games. This stupid WordScrapes app appears again and again and again, within the forced ads…… When it arrives within the forced adds, it stays on your screen, and won’t disappear, until you download it again…… IT STOPS AND PREVENTS YOU FROM PLAYING YOUR FAVOURITE APP GAMES……. I DON’T WANT TO PLAY THIS STUPID HORRIBLE (WordScrapes) APP I DON’T WANT IT TAKING OVER MY FAVOURITE GAME APPs…… The developers need to stop this app appearing in adds within other game Apps where you are literally forced to download it Sort this problem out, STOP it appearing in forced adds within other game apps….. VERY FRUSTRATING AND ANNOYING!!!!.Version: 2.1.1

Fun diversion with flawsI’ve been playing this for some months now and enjoy it when I have a few minutes here and there. I do crosswords as well and it’s fun to look at 6 or 7 letters in any given puzzle and either see immediately the word that uses all of them—or to stare at it blankly wondering how any of those letters combine to make anything. The problem is that any words you make that aren’t in the grid should go into the bonus words. But the dictionary they use for the bonus words is so limited that I have long lists of valid words that are both in the dictionary and in common use that the game rejects. Added to that, they accept very few non-American spellings and non-American English words. I have emailed the developer about my frustration with the game, and they responded but didn’t seem to consider my concerns valid. They also have weekly contests, with point prizes for the top ten scorers. That was fine at first, but the game has so many users now that they should at least double the number of prizes. If the dictionary was improved, I would probably give the game 5 stars, but it’s too frustrating as it is to fully enjoy it..Version: 1.3.1

Awesome game but...I do really love this game, and have been playing it for ages. I paid for the ad free version very quickly as I got sick of the ads and I’m really happy with it as a game in whole. The thing that really bothers me is it is very ‘US’ friendly, and maybe not so friendly to the rest of the world. They are happy to use words such as ‘amen’, ‘god’, but won’t include words like ‘gay’ which just seems archaic, and not so supportive of other religions either. Also, Tuesday isn’t considered a word, but ‘gah’ and ‘ooh’ are?! It’s pretty inconsistent with using plurals/adjectives/nouns (proper and improper) and the words that it does not recognise astound me sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, I do love this game, and play it every day, but I do think it needs a bit of a global/21st century update if I were to give my honest opinion 🤷🏽‍♀️.Version: 1.13.1

So-so needs some work.So-so game. Lots of ads, lots of words missing from their library: Nog Abed Edam Nos Vail Slav Asia Salvia Coms Yale Licky Pule Are just a few so far. Pretty well have to shut off cell data and wifi for it to be decently playable..Version: 1.5.1

Love it AND hate itTerrific terrific game, especially being part of a team that competes in weekly tournaments and chats all week long. It’s truly a unique online experience. But there are so many glitches in the functioning of the game (freezing, booting people off the game and teams, difficulty working with support to restore progress if you get a new device or if something happens to your current one, the list goes on and on). The only reason most people on our team stay is because of the team and the relationships we have formed, and we put up with an incredible amount of frustration just to be together. PeopleFun keeps adding features many seasoned players don’t want and they ignore feedback about that. Worst thing now is they are forcing people to update the game in order to play at all. AND recent versions cause iPhone to get extremely HOT and drains the battery precipitously fast (so hot the phone has to wait to charge to get to a reasonable temperature!) If only they would fix glitches first. Many of us avoided updating to minimize exposure to the problems with the game is functioning. What used to be a great, relaxing word game is being turned into distracting childlike side games that slow things down and add to the frustration of trying to play. Ignoring players, who have been loyal to your game for years doesn’t seem like a good strategy..Version: 2.4.2

Way too many adsThis game is fun and addictive but there are way too many ads and completely eats up my phone battery. With the free version one should expect ads, but after the latest update which you were forced to do, there is an ad after every level! It’s completely ridiculous and I refuse to pay $12.99 to remove the ads. Also-many of the levels are repeated. I don’t know how many times I’ve played the levels with the word “concave”, “oilman”, “sagoura”-gets boring after awhile. Will be deleting this game..Version: 2.4.2

Just okWhile this is good to scramble your brain for words you know (or may not know) and thus keeping it “fit” there are also significant limitations, such as the limit of words this app knows about. How come “liter” (the AE version) is accepted and “litre” (the BE version) isn’t. There are many other words this app doesn’t know about and that’s a real deficiency (eg. it knows “plunge” but not “pungle”). Instead it knows useless words like “doh”, “aah” and “nah” that border on usefulness and dictionary entries. It would be good if the devs would pay better attention to that and scramble the dictionaries of the world. Another detractor is the amount of ads and their length. There are not just on-screen Google ads, but also repetitive movie length ads between almost each level. For an app that doesn’t really require much development work this ad cashing in seems exaggerated. Lastly, the tournament (if you don’t want to miss out on some bonus coins) becomes a real frantic race as the clocks ticks. While it’s good for user engagement for the business it destroys some of the game play with people (myself included) using available word lists to keep up. I for my part had enough of this and say good bye to the game. There also seem to be a couple of variations on the same game with a very similar layout, slightly different name but effectively the same game. Raking in the money….Version: 1.0.50

If it’s not one thing it’s the otherEDITED; the final fantasy ads haven’t shown up since they emailed me about it but now i have a whole bunch of other ads that are now scrollable and won’t show anywhere to close them. Also the ads that are constantly at the bottom of the screen now pop up mid play a good 25 times in a row and doesn’t stop even if I close the game. Force quit solves nothing. Just got to wait it out until it stops spazzing out. Most times I play now, the game freezes and absolutely nothing shows up on my screen and am forced to close it. Happens at least twice a day. The music makes my speakers vibrate and go weird and it is the only app on my phone that does it. Sometimes the backgrounds for the links won’t show and looks weird and is difficult to press AND half the words that are actually in the dictionary aren’t considered real words, yet stupid shortened versions, or nicknames of words are. Did the person that made this game actually go to school? ORIGINAL; Can’t X out of the final fantasy ads and are forced to close the entire game because of them. I enjoy this game but ff ads are enough to delete it. I did already review this game but it seems to have been deleted?! Smh..Version: 1.0.48

Non standard lexiconIf you love traditional word games this one may annoy you. It uses a weird selection of prefixes, abbreviations, contractions, archaic and slang words. Ideal for US kids but not for baby boomer word sleuths. It also has a very limited range of words. The same ones appear repeatedly. I’m not sure why, since the crosswords are tiny. If you’re ok with American spelling, it doesn’t take much effort to familiarise yourself with the limited words and then it can be quite relaxing. I play it to chill out. I am at level 1269, so maybe it gets longer words at later levels..Version: 1.0.61

Way TOO many ADSReally enjoyed the game in the first few hours. But it got ruined after that because of the Ad right after each play. It’s really annoying to wait after each level. Don’t mind seeing ad as you need to keep the app running. However, ad after each play puts me off. I even tried downloading a app in one of the ad thinking it might help. It just kept going. Deleted both app as I’m really fed up with this waiting game. Two star is because I did enjoy the first few hours..Version: 1.19.3

WordscapesVery slow, app freezes and ads don’t respond to “x” many times with three or four no responsive pages. This continues to get worse as time goes on..Version: 1.19.7

GlitchThe only reason I’m leaving a 1-star review is because of a glitch that happens around the 8.8 million brilliance point mark. Our top player was up to that level. She was signed in with Facebook, and the app would kick her off as soon as she opened it. I tried to contact support for her, but they said they needed to deal with her directly. She couldn’t contact support because the app kept kicking her off! I did some research, and it turns out there have been quite a few people that have been dealing with the same issue. Many of them started over completely. I can’t imagine having to start over after investing that much time. The people I’ve seen that have been dealing with the same thing have been dealing with it for OVER A YEAR. The game is enjoyable. It’s a good way to join a team and forge friendships, but what good is it if you’re dead in the water once you hit a certain level? If this issue has been around for over a year and has yet to be fixed, that’s a red flag. You’re going to lose people. People that have been very loyal to the game for a very long time. They’re fairly good at fixing other issues. I’ll give them credit for that, but this one is a deal breaker. If this issue weren’t still here after over a year, this would easily be a 5-star review..Version: 2.1.2

Long time player disappointedBeen playing casually for years. Only recently begun to take an interest in the tourney feature. The team feature is fun playing with other players. And hearing their gripes about the game. About how some players seem to be under testing with new game features. The latest was Star Rush. Which I don’t really see the point of with getting bonus points if you complete a level within 3 mins. I think most players can complete a level within that period. So no real change from the regular play. Unless you take your time and those players are at a disadvantage. Or something comes up and you forget to close out of your screen. So lose bonus points accrued unless you pay coins to not lose them. Days when there is not a tourney you have theme feature to collect portraits. For instance was the ‘Trick or Treat’ theme. Where you collect portraits with a Halloween theme. And what I heard from other players, it’s nearly impossible to obtain all the portrait from the set. The only feature I’m able to complete a collection are the butterflies but most regular players can complete collections. And really the only I was able to complete. I’ve yet to complete any portrait sets. I know players with millions in brilliance and they haven’t competed a set. So they doesn’t bode well for players like me. I still play but mostly for the tourneys and the team I joined..Version: 1.19.3

Like this game but…I like Wordscapes, but I have multiple complaints about the midweek events such as the Butterfly event and the Portrait event. It is literally impossible to collect a full set of portraits and I know many people on my tournament team who have the same issue. You will consistently get duplicate portraits no matter how much you play and eventually get stuck at around 90% completion. Why spend so much effort on something that has extremely little reward? Also, the Butterfly event is extremely glitchy and sometimes the cocoons you collect in a level don’t count towards your total, sometimes it takes 20 levels just to get one butterfly, and sometimes the event just doesn’t work at all. There are other mainly useless features that they have added like the wildlife feature that no one asked for while the regular weekly events never get improved or updated despite numerous complaints to support. Support just tells you “we’ll look into it” when you bring up glitches but they are never actually resolved or improved. This game needs a new support/IT team to overhaul the entire game..Version: 2.2.1

Could have been goodAdvertised as a relaxing game, but spoiled by Star Rush, one of the dumbest gaming ideas I have seen, designed to rush you to get you to buy more coins. Now I am on level 3,300 and it is stuck on endless Star Rush even when I let the clock run down to lose Star Rush deliberately. And the developers aren’t even smart enough to make the game playable in landscape mode on my iPad so I can play it in bed. Hard to play in portrait mode with a keyboard case and limited movement in my right hand due to a stroke. Could be a great game, but the developers believe they are right, but in reality are just playing dumb and dumber..Version: 2.4.2

Overheats phone and ads don’t respect app or device settingsStarted playing this game a few months ago and it seemed fun. Ads were every few puzzles and progressing through the levels was rewarding. I noticed that the app was overheating my phone and had a lot of video ads. I went and checked the app privacy report and, as of now, it has contacted 611 different domains, primarily for ads and tracking purposes. This is over 5x the amount by the next worse app I have (111 different domains). Not only are loading and playing the ads overheating my phone, with each update they have become more frequent, which I turn causes more overheating. Currently they are after EVERY puzzle and any time you “leave” the app you get a bonus ad (even if you are just checking your notifications). The icing on top is there are many ads that are either manipulative/click bait, very difficult to close without triggering a visit to another website or another popup, and/or override not only your app settings, but also your device settings. My app settings have all sounds turned off, yet some of the ads will make sound anyways. When I click the mute switch, the ads ignore that as well. The only way to not get the sound off is to turn the phone volume all the way down. Allowing this behaviour within an app should be illegal. Support keeps asking me to send them screenshots and say the ads aren’t supposed to do that, yet it keeps happening despite me sending them many screenshots. The app would be much better if they just used one or two ad providers without video/interactive ads that are so demanding on the phones and cause the overheating (and eventual app crashes). Collecting the things is fun, but the irritation of the ads (and the obscene amount of tracking/analytics sites being used, despite having set my iPhone settings to never allow app tracking) is soon going to have me looking for alternatives..Version: 2.5

Enjoyable, but need to increase vocabulary, and be consistent in what types of words are allowedVocabulary is very limited. Too many legitimate words (e.g. ewer, treed) aren’t accepted, and too many obscure, rarely used words (e.g. lier), slang words (cocker, nan, veep), and “Americanized” words (e.g. lite (but not nite?)) are accepted. Also needs to be consistent - some abbreviated words are accepted (ref, mil, lib, croc, spec, abs, lat, pecs, etc.) but others are not (intel, min, dem, etc.). Also euro is accepted, but peso is not (don’t think I’ve seen the word dollar come up, but I’ll assume it would be accepted). And why is wile accepted but not wiles?? Same with luge, but not luges?? I wish you could select different levels - easy, medium, hard, etc. so that some with a larger vocabulary than others could be challenged while others who don’t could still enjoy the game. While I do agree there are lots of ads, my biggest annoyance is how many times I’ve accidentally clicked on the hint buttons and lost my coins. It takes so long to accumulate 300 coins, so it’s extremely frustrating to lose them by accidentally touching the hint options. You should include a double check “are you sure?” option..Version: 1.13.1

The Rampant Cheating in Tournament Needs to EndWordscapes is a fun well-designed game aside from one thing. The cheating in tournaments. I don’t care if you have an IQ of 180 the likelihood of finishing each level in 10 seconds flat and having 20x the amount of stars than 2nd place makes you m Not even want to try. There is such an easy solution to this that in over 2 years no one has implemented and it’s frankly embarrassing that for as good as the game is and the clever the design that no one has come up with yet continuing to update it. When a tournament begins in the current form of the game your tourney begins on the level you left off on. The problem with this? Every level is on a website that gives you all the answers. Why don’t you design several thousand “tournament only” levels and never reuse them again. If they cheaters can’t just sit on the answer site mindlessly completing 10 levels in the same time it take people who do it right what is the point. Yes I’m so sure these people aren’t cheating, they play 24/7 for 48 hours and never lose any sharpness whatsover. If you want to hold a fair and funny tournament the cheaters need to be chopped off at the knees and have all their acquisitions taken away. They didn’t earn them..Version: 1.13.1

Unstable and frustratingI am a team leader and several players on my team are having problems since the last update. First of all players names are changing to their real first name. Sometimes they see their game name but the rest on the team see their real name. Sometimes we see their names flip back and forth while we’re in chat. As the team leader I didn’t know who was who since I didn’t know players real names. Eventually the players told us who they are. Today we got a system chat message that a player left the team. We had never seen the name before. I looked at our team list and that name was still on the team. It turns out that the player is one of the ones whose name had changed but this was a new name that had no connection to the player. Worst of all several players are not able to even access/load the game. A couple have just quit playing. Others delete the game and reinstall it but lose their level, brilliance, hints, rockets, bullseyes, animals or a combination of them. The game has become very unstable and the developers have not acknowledged the problem or fixed it. The frustration level is causing many of us to think about moving to another game (of which there are many to choose from)..Version: 2.5.1

Ads are out of controlI play this game all the time. Or I should say I used to. I understand ads help pay the bills. Programmers need to eat, too. However, ads have gotten more and more instrusive as time goes on. They are now on a timer. Regardless of whether you’re in the middle of a puzzle or not. Forming your last word to complete the level? Ad. Trying to get that extra couple of stars by beating the timer? Ad. Close and reset the game? 10 second in….ad. Finish a puzzle? Ad. Start a puzzle? Ad. They were tolerable being before or after a puzzle. I could at least close and restart the game getting me back to the puzzles quicker. But during a puzzle with no warning? No hint at all that it’s coming? Intrusive and frustrating. Making ads not last so long (5 seconds at MOST) and NOT HAVING TO SIT/TAP-CLOSE THROUGH 3 LAYERS OF THEM would have been better. Some ads even force open the App store or Safari (regardless of if you close them or not) opening up all kinds of channels for viruses, spam hacks, or accidental purchases. How am I supposed to know this “advertiser’s” website is trustworthy? I’ve played this game for a couole years now as a form of relaxing and zoning out but not anymore. I can’t even do THAT without getting begged and hounded for money at every single turn. I’m not giving my money to a company who resorts to these kinds of measures, even if that means paying removes the ads. Ridiculous. I can’t recommend this game to anyone. Deleted..Version: 2.1.3

It’s fun at first, but the words are often slang, jargon, should-be-hyphenated, etc etcIt’s fun at first, I whizzed (wizzed) through (thru) over 200 levels, but sometimes would struggle to think of a word using the available letters, only to find it was a prefix (inter) or two words bolted together without a hyphen, or geek slang (sim, alt), so in the end had to delete the App. If I had been using this to improve my spelling, it would have taught me badly. If I had used it to sharpen my brain, it would have driven me crazy trying to find words that are not proper words. If this App had a decent dictionary, it would be great fun, educational, and useful. But as it is, it’s just a bit of fun, not educational, not useful, and if you can spell it could just drive you to throw your phone across the room. It’s best to avoid this App, until the dictionary is replaced with a proper one, not one full of made-up words and kidz spellin..Version: 1.13.0

Not happy!Just downloaded Word Scapes - played to several levels, then the screen went blank momentarily and another game (“Bubble” ... something or other) showed up that required it to be downloaded before I could leave that screen. I had to delete Word Scapes to get out. Sorry, not happy won’t redownload..Version: 1.19.7

Re: ads for a “Find the Differences” app…….by Guru Smart Holding Ltd. These ads are showing up repeatedly between puzzles in the tourney. Women on toilets and the hand holding the pen circles their crotches. It is not only offensive, it’s as boring as hell after awhile. I don’t and won’t pay to get rid of ads. Can the developers not find a replacement for this app’s ads? Would be highly appreciated..Version: 2.5.1

Game ruinedLatest: The bonus gift which is offered each day hasn’t worked for well over a week. It keeps saying adds no longer available. Latest update is poor, game keeps freezing. Can we have the old version back please. At least we didn’t have the issues that are currently plaguing game play. Have been playing this game for a long while now and used to really enjoy it. Unfortunately now it’s being ruined by constant adverts, that some you have to watch all of the way through before you can exit them. These often last 30 to 40 seconds before you can get rid of them. The other thing which is annoying is that you use to get coins each day for completing the daily Wordscapes. This reward is now very infrequent. I have contacted the developer before on both of these issues, but they have never responded to my review which is extremely disappointing.Version: 2.10

I love the game, but two stars for the ads.The game is extremely addicting and fun to play, but the ad breaks between the game is being horribly abused. I really don’t mind that a free game has an ad break in between rounds, but instead of having to skip through the initial ad, and then its follow-up ad of the same game, it is now forcing a third ad of the same useless game, significantly longer wait times, and it’s as if the closing button is now even smaller, and forces you to open the appstore at least 2-3 times before it finally allows you to close it. Even after that, if you don’t close it out in time, IT EITHER PLAYS THE AD ALL OVER AGAIN OR STARTS A WHOLE OTHER AD! Practically forcing your users to download useless games that they do not want to play is NOT how you gain their attention! It is greedy! I hate to remove this game because I genuinely enjoy it, but if the ad issues don’t get resolved, I’m probably just going to remove the app and find an indie app developer that doesn’t cram ads down your throat the way this game has been, and take my business to them. If you would like video proof of these ads in action, I can definitely make it happen..Version: 1.17.0

Support is unsupportive !This game is great because of the people you meet in teams . Great idea for a game and you can buy an opt out of ads . .. but - a lot of glitches and the worst thing ? When you contact support - they're always " looking into it . And " thank you for your feedback , I have been asking " when will we be getting new boards for weeks now , and the answer from support ? Thanks for your feedback, we'll pass it on to the team . I didn't send feedback I sent a question. A question that they continue to evade So annoying and unhelpful , and I bet the developer if they put a note after this will say " we'll look into it (! It's a great game spoiled by old boards repetitive , boards that repeat three times in a row and most of all a support section that doesn't ..Version: 2.9

New portraits setting complete turn offI’ve really loved this brilliantly simple game for over a year now and definitely happy to pay to get rid of ads. But recently my 5 stars has turned to only 1 because the new portraits setting are just depressing - it’s now set up in a way there’s no chance of winning without putting your entire life in hold for two days a week. So instead of looking forward to it I now find myself avoiding and resenting the game - definitely enjoying and playing less..Version: 1.14.3

Used to be fun, now ruined by ads.Used to love this app - very addictive and the collection challenges are super cute. The dictionary is quite limited, which can get frustrating, but other than that I enjoyed it a lot. Unfortunately, in the last 6 months or so the app has been redesigned and is far less enjoyable now. The main changes that I strongly dislike are: 1. Ads are now incessant. They used to be after every few puzzles, which is fine for a free-to-play app. Now, they are after every puzzle, without exception. Also, waiting to claim a prize? Ad. Reopen the app after looking at another window? Ad. Idk about other players, but flooding the app with ads isn’t going to coerce me to buy the premium version. I’ll just stop playing. 2. The rewards for gaining duplicates in the collection challenges were slashed, so now you have to do twice as many puzzles for the same rewards. 3. Probably a bit of a personal gripe, but I’m not into the new wildlife aspect. My actual job is in wildlife conservation and having an app trying to get me to spend large amounts of time doing challenges to “save” fake wildlife is just annoying. The pretty backgrounds that this has replaced were a really nice feature of the app..Version: 2.5

Constant ads ruin this game!This would be a good pleasant game but the constant ads after every game makes me want to pull the pin. Also after reaching level 75 I feel it’s not really very challenging but I would be tempted to continue if it were not for those ads. I accept you have to have them but when there’s that many you no longer want to play then they defeat their purpose and I’m going to delete this app.Version: 2.13

Ads after every single game ……I’m currently on lvl 78 & I’ve had ads auto play after every single game since I’ve hit level 70. Tolerable before as I could at least get 2 games in before I’m forced to watch an ad. Deleting game now as I’m spending more time watching ads than actually playing the game. Not worth it & not worth paying for the ad free version (for me) If you leave the app to reply to a message that’s popped up etc - another ad plays when you got back into the game =_=.Version: 2.12.1

Tournaments are a jokeI love this game and play regularly and I had doubts when I read some reviews that said that the tournaments were mainly done by bots, but now I have clearly seen it first hand and those reviews are right!!! I decided to take about a 15-20 minute break from it to go to the store and relax my eyes. When I went back on to play, 2 people had passed me and one of them suddenly had over 2300 points. In the 15-20 minutes I was away from it, someone who wasn’t even in the top ten of players had passed us all with that many points. Now I play this game a lot and I would like to think I am pretty good, but this is complete crap and takes all of the competitive fun out of the game! I even paid to stop the ads and there is no way I could put up 2000 points in 15 minutes. I will not ever spend another dime on this game and feel this is cheating and just downright cheap to do to people that really want to compete and have fun. Not to mention that when you get to higher levels it becomes repetitive. I have done some of the same puzzles 4 times. Did they run out of words?!? Maybe the bots could come up with some to help the developers out! Complete joke competing in the tournaments... don’t even waste your time!.Version: 1.2.0

Great way to chill if you can handle it’s foiblesI find this an almost addicting daily indulgence. I’ve been playing this for well over a year and when dealing with their standard puzzles, the game can be quite entertaining. Where it falls down is with its vocabulary and it’s other options, like tournaments and daily puzzles. By far the most frustrating is the Daily Puzzle, in which earn points for guessing the correct word, guess them correctly and you’ll earn up to 3 points for one of the four challenges which in turn rewards you with stars for your account. However, there is neither rhyme nor reason to their method. Say you need a 3-letter word with “O” in the middle. With your letter selections it could be NOT, TON, LOT, HOT or TOY. Guess them in the wrong order and your chance of earning all 3 stars that round may be lost. I don’t know why they don’t put the words in alphabetical order. Next is vocabulary. I can’t say how many times I’ve tried a word and it’s not accepted (example: EWER or TOM.) Then there are the words like AAH and AHA or non-words like LITE. Finally there’s the tournaments (where one minute you’re rated #5, you’ll finish a game and drop to 20. Oh, and you better have a cell or network connection, otherwise you’ll play through a round of 16 games and get credit for none of them..Version: 1.19.3

Constant broken updatesI have played this game for years and loved it. Joined an amazing worldwide team and count the members as friends. However, the amount of updates that are released for this game is unbelievable. Sometimes a few a week. And there are always glitches requiring yet another update as they cause more problems than they solve. I play on my iPhone when not an home and my iPad when I am. They were always synced. An update was released to sync people’s devices. Mine are now not synced. And I have lost access to all my wildlife. Facebook is full of people having issues. I reported it to support. Their response. Turn on my Wi-Fi. How bizarre that the issue happened within seconds of the update. And my Wi-Fi is fine for everything else. Play if you wish but be prepared for constant updates that don’t work and mess up your game and don’t expect support to support you or fix it. I am seriously considering deleting this app as are many on Facebook. I suggest you fix this or lose many loyal players who have had enough.Version: 2.5.1

Too much clutterBeen playing Wordscapes for years now, and whilst I enjoy the basic word game, they keep adding to it with extra collection things that are available only on certain days and for a limited time, so almost completely unachievable. I have about a dozen different things that I cannot complete, including a Christmas portrait thing from last year that came up again, I’m one portrait away from completing it but despite hours of play it refuses to award the one portrait required. Now they have added an animal feature where eggs are required to hatch animals but with the amounts of gems awarded to buy the eggs, and the limits of what animals it allows you to hatch, it would take literally decades of play to complete it, basically it feels pretty pointless and unachievable and detracts from the enjoyment of the basic wordplay game that it was originally. At least make it more achievable - give more points/gems/chrysalis/binoculars etc per game, let you select to play a particular game and focus on that rather than just add another thing and take away the ability to complete the thing you’ve just spent hours of play investing in. Very frustrating.Version: 2.1.1

A great game ruinedWordscapes was a really fun game until PeopleFun implemented a new “feature” called star rush this weekend. For a whopping 6 extra bonus points players now have finish a level within a certain time frame to endure yet another screen of tedious animation and tap through screens at the end of every level. This slows players down and leaves them frustrated and unmotivated. PeopleFun have now also separated individual and team scores so they do not sync so players now score more in their individual tourney than the team tourney because “star rush” points do not count towards the team score. Many teams are disheartened and have lost motivation to play, and without the incentive of team participation for their efforts, there isn’t much reason to continue playing this game..Version: 1.18.0

Unnecessary updatesI’ve loved this game for months but am ready to delete it. The new update is awful, the game is becoming less and less of a word game, and more of a “pay to win” game where you pay to collect useless pets. Very dissapointed..Version: 2.0

Ads may be dangerous on this.Noticed while playing it’d try to load websites, login to apple and the final straw this morning was it looks like it tried to send a text message. Uninstalled after app immediately. Gameplay is great but they need to keep their ads from leaving the app or doing things in the background..Version: 2.4

Way to many adsIt’s a good game, cant complain about the actual “gameplay” but why on earth are there so many ads? There’s one every time you complete a level, and plenty in between. And why on earth is it $20 to get rid of them?? Absolutely ridiculous. Most of the time you can’t skip the ad for about 10 seconds, which means it’s quicker to close the app and reopen it. I don’t know what kind of greed this is but it’s the worst kind..Version: 2.12.1

Good app with one glitchI was enjoying playing this word game until I reached level 259 when I chose to save my bonus stars and was taken to a screen to purchase more coins. I had already paid for the ads to be removed and wasn’t interested in spending more but there was no way of exiting the shopping screen. Twice I deleted the app and reinstalled it which allowed me to play a couple more games but ultimately getting to the shopping screen again with no option to exit. Wondering if this is a glitch or intentional. If it’s a glitch and it is fixed I would rate it 5 stars. In not fixed, probably will delete and not play it again..Version: 2.1.1

Beware of missing features!The developers of his app give some features (adventure game within the game for example) to some users, but not all. They also give "random mid-week tournaments" to some, not all; however, in my team of fifty players, we found that the same people got the tournament week after week, so it's not incredibly random. If your mates get all the extra tourneys, they get to advance through the game at a much faster rate with 'crowns' that can only be obtained in the tourney play - and THAT'S why it's not fair to others of us. Bottom line, if you don't mind others being given blatant unfair advantages by the game, you'll have fun. And contacting them to ask why results in a 'sorry, not sorry' reply. One star given for my inferior game experience caused entirely by the app developers themselves. Others bestowed with the bonus features will probably rate higher. *My reply to Developer: then your TEST shouldn't allow people to unfairly advance faster in the game. If you win your individual tourney, you are eligible for max 50 crowns/wk. Extra TEST tourney, gives access to 25 extra/wk. UNFAIR GAME ADVANCEMENT!!!! Then take the test crowns away. Test all you want and hallelujah for you, but you should not let people advance in your game and others do not have equal access. I don't expect to get 50 crowns per week unless I EARN them, but I don't expect others to have access to 100 game advancing crowns per month, when I do not!.Version: 1.9.1

FrustratedOnce again I'm battling with Ads that won't move on! They don't disappear when you press the x but immediately sends you to the App Store. It happens with several Ads - not just one!!! It spoils the fun of the game and irritates when you are competing!! It is bad enough having to deal with adverts between games but when you, firstly, can't get out of some of them without exiting the game and restarting, but, secondly, you now have to deal with moving ads at the bottom of your game which are not only annoying but hurt my eyes!! Most of the games advertised I wouldn't download especially because their ads are so annoying!! Again the ads are stopping the game. The Apple ad has no way to close it so I can't continue playing! I have to reboot my phone to get it off!! Many of the other games are so boring because they are so repetitive and really irritating!! I understand you get paid for the ads but honestly!!! Once again!!!! The adverts are getting worse!!! You press the x to get out of them and it doesn't work! You get forwarded to the App Store. I have to reboot my phone almost all the time now so won't be playing this game till you can sort it!!! 😤😡 The Apple game ads are the worst!!! I constantly am having to reboot my phone because the game just stalls when you try to remove the add by clicking the X..Version: 1.9.1

Ads kill this gameI understand the developers need us to make purchases or watch ads to play but watching an ad between virtually every level that takes longer than the game itself kills any enjoyment. Free play is meant to get you interested enough to keep playing, and paying, but at this rate, I can’t even play enough to want to keep playing. So many ads aren’t clickable either and freeze for minutes. The only way forward is to close the app completely and then reopen. ANNOYING doesn’t even cover how frustrating the ads make this game. So I won’t be continuing to sample this game. It could be fun but too many ads killed any possible fun..Version: 1.17.0

Old Version Better/Coin IssueI’ve played this game for a few years now and noticed a disappointing new feature with the coins. In order to use them now you must purchase them. This was not a requirement with the old version and makes me consider deleting the game daily as the use of the coins used to provide you with helpful features like; revealing one letter of your choice for a difficult word, etc. It’s a bit illogical to continue to show us coins that we’ve earned through finding additional letters or for reaching a certain level, yet we have no access to them unless we purchase them??? It feels like a design flaw as you play and really makes me wish I hadn’t updated to this newest version. Other than that I would have given 5 stars but it’s such a nuisance I have to grade much lower despite truly enjoying playing the game. Suggestion: Get rid of the option to pay for coins per player's choice if you decide to keep the paid “earned coins” version of this game as most people are never going to bother purchasing anyway it’s like having a commercial running in the upper right corner of your television screen while you’re watching your favorite TV show. It cheapens the look and feel of the game. It feels like the game creators are begging for money as opposed to a real game which would never have a running advert in the corner. Otherwise the game is perfect..Version: 1.10.0

Ad festivalIt’s honestly cancerous how the ads work, it’s 5 seconds but not really cause once you click x there’s another 5 seconds you have to look at the picture and then click x and sometimes there’s even another frickin prompt that you also have to click x on. That’s insane that anyone allows these type of ads to exist, how is showing me the ad 3 separate times gonna get me to download it, it just gets me upset..Version: 1.19.2

Ads escalatingI expect ads when playing a free game. This used to be a fun and relaxing game. Now the ads are relentless! After only 2 or 3 words are solved, I’ll get 3 ads! only to have more pop up within a minute. This is just too much! What went wrong? It used to be so good. ☹️.Version: 2.2

Good game, very glitchyI have downloaded the game twice in the attempt to avoid the problem. I’ve contacted support and they haven’t been able to resolve the it. The issue is I seem to get a few levels in and the game stops being able to process the words I’m writing. I went back to redo levels to see if it was something I was doing. I can’t enter words there either. I enjoy the game but not the hassles. Glad I didn’t pay. If I don’t hear from support soon I will likely delete and try again in a few months time. If it does the same again I’m writing it off. Sorry for the neutrality of the review I liked the game but it doesn’t work well..Version: 1.0.58

Adscapes?I really enjoyed the environments, the pets, crown seasons and everything, but the last update has made the game completely unplayable. There is an ad after EVERY SINGLE ROUND. And there is absolutely no way I’m paying $12.99 just for an ad-free version, that’s ridiculous. This game has gone from Wordscapes to Adscapes and has ceased to be an enjoyable experience. Don’t download this, it’s not worth the aggravation..Version: 2.5

A game spoiled by tinkeringThe developers have altered this game so much over the last 3 years probably to keep people interested that it’s made its gameplay worse. You complete a game and then it repeats up to 3 or 4 times in succession, this makes the game at best tedious but in truth irritating. There was also the thing where I had this installed on two devices: iPhone for out and about and iPad for at home, wasn’t a problem for 3 years but latest update meant that every time I swapped device I had to choose which was main device. Not a problem you say but despite choosing a primary and secondary device it always asked me to choose each and every time, an annoyance that there never had been before. There is a maxim that goes “Less is more” and another “If it isn’t broken don’t fix it” and in this case these are very much true. After over 3 years of playing this game & completing more than 30k levels and getting over 1.7 million brilliance, I have now uninstalled this game and deleted my account. Shame really because I used to really enjoy it.Version: 2.6.1

Good game but............There is a lot of repetition of words and a lot cannot be considered proper words as per a dictionary, such as deli. US spelling takes getting used to but I’m up to level 1161 in 4 weeks and I’m not getting much of a challenge now. I haven’t had to use any hints for 2 weeks so will probably delete this game soon. Last, and most annoying, ADS, ADS, my god. I know this how the games get revenue but to have an ad at each and every single game, sometimes even if you leave a game and come back, you will have to wait for an annoying, stupid ad, none of which I have any interest whatsoever in using. Another reason why I will delete this game..Version: 1.5.1

Umm...? Somethings not safe here...This game is great!!!! I love it! It would totally be a 10/10 but... Something just is not quite right, if I need coins for a hint... and I don’t have any, I have to pay real money for the coins right? Makes TOTAL sense! But if you decide... “nah I’m not spending my money” the you tap the button to get out of the thingy because you don’t REALLY need coins blah blah blah! Anyway so the a thing pops up every time (just how the game works) and it list three was you can get more coins for FREE!!!!! Well... this is ware the UNSAFE business happens... the 3 ways you can get coins for free that are listed is, 1. Video (totally safe that’s no big deal) 2. Offers (just more videos, or downloading games witch is totally fine) And 3. surveys!!!!! DO NOT TAKE THE SURVEY!!!! It asked me for my age, name, and some other personal info!!! I stoped immediately and made sure it did not go through. Now I’m not saying don’t buy the game!!! It’s a GREAT game!!! The survey is the only bad thing about it. I’m just saying... it might not be bad... but I personally don’t trust that kinda stuff. Anyway this is a amazing game and I can’t stop playing!!! Thank you to anybody that has actually bothered to read this 😂😂😂.Version: 1.3.1

Upsetting with constant non removable adsI started the game in a very good note and literally enjoyed it but by the time I reached level 10 few ads started to pour in. By the time I reached level 30 the ads became more frequent. At one point this particular ad just glued to my screen and I couldn’t remove it any further thus couldn’t play it any longer. This ad had no cross button and so with the sad heart I had to uninstall this game from my phone. I seriously wish that they would something about. Few ads are fine but this many frequent stubborn ads are bit too much. Not sure whether I will ever download this game again..Version: 1.0.45

Was great to begin with…I’ve been playing this game for a few years now. It was fun and challenging without being extremely difficult to advance in levels. I even won a few “tournaments”. But after tech support’s latest response, I will be deleting the game. As people have frequently mentioned, the ads are a pain. They pop up immediately after every level and (more frequently lately) prevent a player from receiving stars earned for completing a puzzle. This has happened to me several times now and the only response I get from tech support is a scripted response saying they’re aware of the bug and are working on it. What I find interesting is that players have been complaining about this “bug” for a year! Is the hired help so incompetent that the issue is still not resolved after all this time?!!! I’ve even asked for my earned stars to be rewarded while they work on the problem. I didn’t ask for money to be refunded…just to receive the stars earned for completing a puzzle. All I get is the same scripted response. What is the point of playing a game when you most likely will not get the earned reward! Because tech support has ignored the issue this long and due to their unwillingness to compensate earned stars, I DO NOT recommend downloading this game..Version: 2.1.3
