Cryptogram: Word Brain Puzzle for Negative User Reviews

So…I love cryptoquip. That’s the name of the game that’s played in the newspapers. Yes, I’m old fashion I still get the newspaper. Anywho, every game is the different. For 20 some odd years, two different states, multiple cities- the problem is always something different. Now, this game was fun. Until about level 10 when the problems began to recycle. The weirdest thing is with new levels comes new challenges where letters are locked and you unlock them to take a jab at solving the word. However, the puzzles are recycled so we always know the word. What I do enjoy is I don’t have to erase it I get a letter wrong, thanks to technology and the creators of the game. Yet, I’m on level 44 and I feel cheated..Version: 2.0.2

Not working atmMust be a bug or something because it won’t let me go past the Home Screen.Version: 2.0.4

Way too many adsThe game itself is quite fun. The puzzles are quite simple, even on “hard mode” but the entire app has way too many adverts which is forcing you to buy the no ad version. Every single round you’re faced with an advert that you spend 2-3 minutes waiting for. Even selecting some level packs starts an advert as well..Version: 1.6.2

Too many adsI only played 6 games and then deleted the app due to the number of ads..Version: 2.0.4

CryptogramI love the game. However, I’m constantly told by the game I have no internet connection, which I do, but can’t gain more coins to buy new levels. You can’t buy more coins and then you don’t have enough coins to buy another level so eventually you can’t play anymore as you can’t get access to more coins. For the last week when I click on links to try and progress I get no internet connection. How do you get further when you can’t move forward?.Version: 1.8.7

Game stallsGame stalls and can’t get pass lvl 9 contact them but no reply.Version: 1.9.8

Liked it but not for seniorsA good game, a bit of a challenge. But there’s one huge overarching problem of poor interface design. The game is FULL of white space, making the digits under the letters too small. Developers, do you intentionally want to prohibit a portion of you audience? Seniors would never see the tiny digits under the words! As doctors have started suggesting seniors play puzzle and word games to keep their minds sharp, a game like this would be ideal. There’s plenty of room to make the digits larger— TONS of unused empty space. If developers are wondering why people download this game, try it and delete it, this is why—- WE CANT SEE THE DIGITS! Not even with reading glasses. Phones are already small screens and when you have a 4 point font you can forget about it. Many people start getting reading glasses in their forties. That’s a lot of people you don’t want to be able to play your game. Fix it, make the digits bigger, and I’d be back..Version: 2.0.5

Idk how to feel?I’m not sure if I would recommend this game or not… Reasons I would recommend: -it is simple and easy to use -there are lots of different word challenges to complete But that is all (is that really enough) Reasons I wouldn’t recommend: -It talks about the “visually impaired” (that is wrong and should not be there as it encourages people to talk about the disabled people in a laughing joking manner) -There are tons of ads (which I understand you need to make a profit but it is ad after ad after ad - and I have had enough of that) I give 3 stars because I can’t give 2.5 stars. I would give 2.5 stars because I have an equal amount of negatives and positives. I hope this gets changed soon!!!!! I will keep this app though because I am hoping to start seeing some changes in the app!!!!!! I also might check out some other games by this creator if I can see a link in some of the behaviour of the app (about the disabilities and disorders).Version: 1.8.7

Enjoyed it to begin withVery disappointed, enjoyed the idea of using other letters to fill in the words. Started well but it started to ‘stick’ would put in correct letter and you wait for a long time you push the letter again and it has moved to another letter and it is wrong! To start with not many adverts but you then begin to get a lot. Great idea though one quote had about 2 letters so once they were filled in didn’t have a clue! You can only make 3 mistakes. Will definitely try again in a few months if these glitches are sorted as I enjoy puzzles and this to start with was great..Version: 1.6.2

Might deserve 2 or 3 starsIt could be good but needs some changes. I’ve given it one star as paying for no adverts didn’t do what I thought it would. For example, adverts still show if you get more than 3 wrong unless you start that phrase again. Having said that, it’s quite fun to play while watching the tv. Unfortunately there are other issues: when you’ve done about 100 puzzles it starts repeating. The timer is faulty too, putting it down mid puzzle and picking it up hours later, it included the time away on at least one occasion. Another problem I had with it is that the breadth of vocabulary in the puzzles is very limited as is the content of the quotes. Many are culturally insensitive and some downright sexist, unpleasant or cliches. I’ve poor eyesight so fairly often clicked on the wrong thing by accident. This made the three error thing somewhat irksome. Maybe the number font could be a little bolder. Still, I can say it was enjoyable to play and it cold be very useful app for some children..Version: 2.0.4

I am not paying to get rid of adsI don’t know who y’all think you are, but this game would be phenomenal to relax with before bed if it wasn’t throwing ads in your face every 30 seconds-1 minute. $7.99 to get rid of ads is atrocious, and you should be ashamed.Version: 1.9.8

Plenty of problemsA few of the categories aren’t accurate, as in they cite a quote from someone when it’s actually from someone else, list the wrong artist for a song, or even have words missing. I’m also disappointed in the lack of variety and diversity in the categories. Some of the quotes in the “great quotes” categories are borderline racist/sexist and all of the categories are almost or totally made up of white and male dominated quotes/shows/etc. It’s so disappointing to be doing the superhero category for instance and not having a single quote from a female superhero. Or to read a sexist quote from Winston Churchill..Version: 1.9.8

Good puzzles but glitches oftenI really enjoy the game but the glitches alone are making me look for a different app with similar puzzles. On the hidden spots where you have to get the letter on each side to reveal the blank, I will get both letters but it’ll still show the hidden spot as locked. The only way to unlock is watch an ad for a hint when I don’t need a hint. And then that finished the puzzle but it’s still telling me I have more to solve. I can’t pass that level now even though it’s solved and finished. So I physically can’t continue to play, it won’t let me advance. Fix the bugs and it’ll be a solid app..Version: 1.9.7

Sources are wrongOk, some of the “great quotes” had me suspicious but I really noticed when I was playing through the songs package. Some of the attributed sources of the quotes are WAY off. I’m not watching that many ads for a game that no one bothered to fact check..Version: 1.8.7

Please rethink the sexist quotesI can’t even believe I’m writing this review 😂 I love the game but the choice of sexist quotes that keep coming up in the ‘great quotes’ section is honestly ruining it for me! After the first one I thought it might just be a fluke - they are often historical quotes after all. But they keep coming back! Of all the amazing quotes there are in the world you choose to advertise these offensive, out of date statements 😂. I so wanna play but it’s getting the point where it’s really off-putting. PLEASE review the content in your levels and tone it down. Not trying to be a hater just think it needs to be addressed. Here are some samples lol: ‘A good speech should be like a woman's skirt; long enough to cover the subject and short enough to create interest.’ Winston Churchill ‘ A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.’ Lana Turner.Version: 1.9.8

SO MANY ADS IT LAGSLet me say I enjoy the game itself. I play it daily. The puzzles are fun - even if they still aren’t very challenging as of level 193. ****My issue is the ABSURD amount of ads. I’d give it 5 stars if not for that. I do understand the reason for ads. But one at the end of every level + one before you start the next is bad enough. Like just one in between should suffice but whatever I’ll watch two in a row... But several “Ad Breaks” throughout while you’re in the middle of a puzzle on top of that? WHY? That’s just too much. The ads slow the game down massively. Sometimes it will crash and restart a puzzle I was nearly done with or it’ll lag so badly I have to relaunch the app. It’s also very annoying and distracting when you’ve got a train of thought going solving a puzzle, you’re trying to enter in a letter and suddenly an ad breaks in and it’s like 10 mins long and when it’s finally over you don’t even remember what you were doing! Bug to fix: Could the timer please stop when you close the app or close your phone? I can’t always finish a puzzle before I stop playing. The timer will keep going - sometimes all night and then say it took me 12 hours to complete the puzzle - which throws off my average time. It’s not the biggest deal in the world but if you’re going to have a feature in your app it might as well work properly..Version: 2.1.1

Love this game but…Love burning time playing this game been playing a while before ads came into the game. But I’ve noticed there’s a bug that when I do have an ad if I click on the ad by accident I swipe away the pop up to download the game then the ad freezes. The only way to fix it is to close the game and restart it back up again but this has been clearing my progress on the current level I’ve been on meaning I have to start that level from the beginning. Bit of a pain when I’m a few letters from finishing when I get an ad break. Hope this can be fixed so I can continue to play and not have to worry about having to restart a level after an ad. P.s I’m not fussed about the ads too much as they give me rewards..Version: 1.9.8

New updateHate the new update. Taking away being able to get points watching videos for the daily puzzles you can save up enough to get the higher coin cost puzzles. Love the endless mode but still not able to get extra coins..Version: 2.0.2

Ads are incredibly long and annoyingEven after getting the paid version of the app, you’re required to watch ads or buy coins in order to get any levels if you don’t want to wait weeks on end to earn enough coins from the daily challenges. The ads are ridiculously long, you can’t turn off the sound, and it sometimes makes you inadvertently click on the ad because of the eventual placement of the x. That’s got to be against the advertising rules?.Version: 1.9.8

Love the concept, wish it didn’t drain so much batteryI love word games like this. Unfortunately there are two things that kind of ruin it for me. The first is that it’s so easy to accidentally make mistakes, and when you only have 3 mistakes to make per level (sometimes the puzzle is an entire paragraph) it gets really frustrating. If there was some kind of confirmation option, like you enter in the letter you want to guess and then hit a separate enter button, that would make it so much better in my eyes. The other thing is that this game uses so much battery. Like, my phone is basically brand new and it drains 10-15% in one puzzle. It’s a word game, it shouldn’t be that intensive on my battery. Otherwise, it’s a great game. Worth paying for no ads..Version: 2.1.1

Love this game but annoying ads!I love playing this game so much for the first time ever I decided to pay for ‘no ads’, now feeling like I’ve been duped as there’s still ads!!! Make 3 errors and you still have a 30s ad to revive. Really, really annoying!!.Version: 1.9.8

Great game but has some issuesI’ve been wanting to play a cryptogram game for a while and was not disappointed in this one, at least not completely. The puzzles are great, a nice mix of challenging and fun. The downside to the app is the amount of ads. I know for F2P games they require ads to help make revenue, however there seems to be an excessive amount, so much so that it’s a little off putting. Another issue with the app is how hot my phone gets while using it. It’s almost to the point I can’t hold the phone. I’ve never had an app make my phone run this hot. Whatever it is that makes the phone run hot it is probably tied to the excessive battery drain. If the devs can address these few issues, I feel they’d have a fantastic app..Version: 2.0.5

Will not startIs there a trick to getting this started? I’ve tried everything but it won’t start but after reading all the reviews I think I’ll just delete it..Version: 1.9.8

Enjoyable but drains batteryI really enjoy this game. Yes the ad breaks are annoying and there’s an ad after every level but I can ignore this. What I can’t ignore is my phone getting quite hot in seconds of opening the app and battery dropping from 47% to 27% in 15 mins. I have iPhone 12 Pro running latest iOS. Please fix.Version: 1.9.8

Endless AdsSuper annoying ads after every level.Version: 2.0.4

Ads ads and more adsGood game totally ruined by the amount of advertisements in it..Version: 1.9.8

Ads & MisogynyLots of ads. Lots of misogynistic puzzles..Version: 1.9.8

Used to workThis app worked great—for a few days. Now it’s permanently stuck! Whenever I complete a level within a specialized theme, the game shows completed but that is all. It does not give me points, move to the next level or anything. I contacted support & nothing. I did the most recent update & now it’s worse. I used to be able to buy anything on any level. Now, that’s not even an option anymore. All I can play are the daily puzzles & their previous months. Too much time wasted trying to fix it + no response from support + extremely limited game choices = delete..Version: 2.0.2

You get what you pay for…The game is, honestly, quite excellent: five star quality… but: Those Ads! • Cannot be skipped: -1 Star • SO Loud AND Cannot Be Muted!: -2 Stars [• Battery draining: possibly related more to my model phone model than the app, so I’ll give it a pass; but if I didn’t have the ads, my battery wouldn’t be drained). Ad-Free Version just $4.99!…? No?!? The Developers ADvertise the promise of an “Ad-Free” experience for $4.99; a fair value for the quality of this game when considering the quantity of those ads. Unfortunately, when you look up the in-app purchases, this is the one ADvertised feature missing from their menu. As teases go, that’s harsh. Developers: seriously, fix this. Please! You [almost] have a perfect game. Final Thoughts: If the $5 ad-free option/version is made available, this would easily claim the title of best puzzle/word game… better than Wordle. With the ads it has now, I’d rate it on par with Microsoft Works [not a typo… for fun, go look up the original release of that software]..Version: 1.9.8

Missed some bugsI’d love to give this game 5 stars but they can’t get the bugs fixed. I really like this app. Tried three times to send a message asking for help with one of the packs — The Brothers Grimm — it got stuck after I completed the 5th puzzle. It won’t complete and move on to the next. Several of your ads get hung up and I end up not getting the 250 points at the end. Yet you just did an update that says it fixed several bugs. Please help. It’s a little frustrating. And the ads — too too many. Paid the $$ to get rid of them and there’s still too many. Please please do something. Or people, myself included, will move on to a different cryptogram game..Version: 2.0.2

Cute game, punitive adsDon’t get me wrong, you deserve ad revenue to continue making a living. I can understand that. I can give up a section of the screen for that minimally intrusive banner ad for that reason. There’s justifiable, avoidable and voluntary ads(example: extra 250 coins for watching an ad, retry chance for watching an ad) that I can understand too. And if I were to wish so, I will watch them. But there’s intrusive, screen-hogging, unavoidable, immersion-breaking ads after every game that embodies the word “punitive”. It’s punishing, not rewarding, the player when you force an ad immediately after each game clear. That just boggles my mind. And unfortunately seems to the norm for so many games. But isn’t acceptable for me, and this is yet another one..Version: 1.9.1

AdsWay to many ads, fun game but the ads r about to make me delete it😫.Version: 1.9.8

Never paid for an app that had so many required adsThe game itself is fun, however I have never had a game I have paid for to be ad free that still requires me to watch so many ads. I tried to watch 10+ ads today and only one has worked which of course means parts of the game don’t work. Save your money and get another app. This one has way too many buy, buy, buy, ads, ads and more ads for a game that you are paying for. Shame on you for pretending your game is ad free. If you are thinking of buying it…believe all the people who have reviewed it, its really bad..Version: 1.9.8

So many adsReally enjoyed the app, would have kept using except for the excessive amount of ads. When I say excessive I really do mean it. I have never come across an app with so many ads. Clicked level button, watch ad, click game, watch ad, click play, watch ad..Version: 2.0.2

AdsThe amount of ads is ridiculous, start of the game 2 or 3 in the middle of a puzzle and at the end of the puzzle..Version: 1.9.8

Fun, but…I like this game but it is very irritating that it doesn’t automatically fill in ALL the letters when you have solved the letter. I have played many times and most of the time, if I made a mistake it was due to accidentally putting the letter in the wrong space when I was filling in all the spaces with the correct letter. If it would fill them in automatically, I would hardly ever have a mistake and the game would go much faster. I would like and appreciate that much better. What is the point of having to fill in every letter if you already know it is correct? That should be the advantage of playing online and not with a pen or pencil..Version: 1.9.7

Ads won’t close after playingAds run, then bounce between the ad and the app. The x won’t close the screen. You have to leave the app completely and come back in. Makes it very annoying. Stopped using app after 5 levels..Version: 1.9.8

Spelling errorCoffee has 2 e’s not 1. The game is fun🙂.Version: 2.0.2

Has potential to be great!This app has tremendous potential. The graphics and interface are spot on and don’t give a 2nd class appearance. The interaction is just right between the complexity of the problem and a user solving. However, all of the quotes are German-based. There was no variety. Plus, some are not well known, making it a simple “fill in the blanks” instead of “let me try to guess the phrase while I fill it out”. Also, I would allow users to use the hearts to revive instead of watching an ad. The ad breaks are sprinkled in already..Version: 1.9.8

CryptogramThis game is a let down because it’s not what was advertised..Version: 1.9.8

Game is ok, way too many adsNot as exciting as it looks in the ads or pictures and will not stop interrupting me for ad breaks..Version: 2.0.2

Ads totally spoil thisCould be a really good games, but I’ve uninstalled it. There is an ad after every game and very often in the middle of a game. I times it and was spending longer for ads to end than actually playing the game. I know that the developers want to generate money and get us to buy the ad free version but all this has done is make me really, really annoyed..Version: 1.9.8

Fun at first…This game has so much great potential. It is quickly ruined because of a couple is things. One, when you get to a certain level, you have no choice but to use the hints because the letters they give you don’t help at all. Two, in order to get a hint you have to watch these ridiculously long ads. Of course you can remove the ads for a fee but then you need to purchase hint packages. An absolute ripoff. Why can we not accrue hints as we solve puzzles? Why is it so difficult to give more letters the further you move along in the game? Yes I get it should be a little more difficult but NOT to the point where we HAVE to watch and ad or purchase hints. Deleting this game because it’s nothing but another cash grab..Version: 1.9.8

Asked to soonJust started so once I have worked with it for awhile ask again..Version: 2.0.2

Don’t be fooled$7.99 to go ad free…yet I still have to watch ads. Absolute sham. Game is good, but no ads should mean no ads..Version: 1.9.8

Too many adsIt’s a very fun game and i enjoy playing it in my spare time. the only problem i have is how many ads there are. you will be interrupted mid-game with “ad breaks” when playing which is very frustrating. if that isn’t enough, you are also shown an add upon completion of a level AND you are shown another add starting the next level. it’s very annoying and if it were a different game i definitely would have deleted it by now. fun game but way too many ads.Version: 2.0.4

Not enough content without paying or watching adsThe game itself is great, but I don’t recommend for a long term player. I liked it well enough to pay for ad free version quickly, but I didn’t realize that there is only enough content for a few weeks of play before I’ve ran out of levels I can do. You get coins by doing collections/levels and daily puzzles; you use those coins to buy more collections. While at first a lot of the collections are cheap, they’ve gotten more expensive to where there’s now a net loss of coins. I now can’t do any more puzzles without buying coins or watching ads. I’ve done all the backlog of daily puzzles, and as many levels as I can. Now I have to wait for a daily puzzle a day to give me 25 coins, to wait on them to add up before I can unlock any more puzzles..Version: 1.9.8

Would be great with a few changesI really do like the game, but there are some things that would make it a better experience. - It easily heats up my phone and can get really slow/glitchy if it’s running for a long time and/or you have anything running in the background. - I don’t like that the super long puzzles have the same number of hearts as a short one. It would be nice to have more leeway just in case you accidentally click the wrong letter. - It would be nice if, when you click on a letter/symbol, it highlighted that symbol all over the board. It has this in the tutorial, and I was disappointed when it disappeared. This would also be really helpful for people who are colorblind when there are colored symbols..Version: 1.9.8

BoringAfter many levels there are many repeat phrases.Version: 2.0.4

Most bad ads in any game.Game is fun, but horrible annoying stupid ads. The game stops in the middle of a round for an “ad break”!.Version: 2.0.4

Good game but…It is a good game. I have a lot of fun playing it. Interesting quotes. Not too much ads. The problem is that the game is very simple but drains the battery extremely fast and also becomes unresponsive - responsiveness of the game drops so you have to wait a moment after each click. Shame as game has potential..Version: 1.9.8

ShameThis is a really absorbing game completely ruined by the sheer relentless volume of ads, even frequently breaking into an ad halfway through gameplay. I doubt I’ll last more than a day playing as it’s just too frustrating. It’s a shame they bombard like this as they would see a lot more player retention if they just cooled it a bit.Version: 1.9.8

What’s the point in having ads for x3 coins?I have one problem with this app, and that is if regardless if you watch an ad or not for bonus coins you still end up getting an advert. Like, I purposefully decide to receive the regular 50 coins rather than an advert for 250 coins and I still end up watching an advert regardless. I understand the need for ads to help pay for the development but having us watch an ad even if we don’t decide to for the bonus coins is a bit far..Version: 1.8.5

Oh dear!!!!Yet another game that starts really well then decides to jump of a cliff… Recent update has killed this game for me. You either have to pay for no ads, which is absolutely fine, but now during one game there an ad break… Ruins the flows and makes this a horrid experience. I didn’t mind the ads at the start and finish of each round, but come on… Big shame so now deleting the game to try and find something else It really interesting that this new generation of development doesn’t what something good, just mediocre!!! I think it’s time for me to rethink the purpose of my phone, and gaming isn’t a feature that’s going to stay…. Yay, I get my life back… thanks!!!.Version: 1.8.7

Dead end adIt’s a good game. I didn’t even mind the ads until ‘Game Pulse’ started appearing. The only way to get rid of it is to close the app and hope it goes away. Wish I’d read about the pitfalls of updating before updating it!.Version: 2.0.4

BoringBoring and inconsistent. Delete..Version: 1.8.1

Many repeats and coin costs are too highNice game. Nicely executed. A lot of repeated content both within and across categories which is disappointing and “ultra hard” is just obscure words put into sentence, like spelling bee answers. Some categories (eg Titanic) is just a rehashing of the movie, scene by scene. This had so much more potential. Why not use actual Titanic facts or quotes about the Titanic? I paid for ad free, but have to watch ads after every puzzle or I don’t have enough coins to “buy” more levels. TL;DR - nice game, average content, don’t expect to play without ads, even if you pay for the app..Version: 1.9.5

Way too many ads.Ads in the middle of the game, ads to go home, ads to do anything. Good game otherwise..Version: 1.9.8

New update?I think there was a new update recently that has me absolutely stumped. It was working great last night everything was on one screen like the levels you buy with coins, the daily levels and the special events. I’m confused now as it seems to have split into 2 different screens, one being bundle mode (levels you by with coins), the other being like a Home Screen with levels that give you water drops and the daily levels. I’m confused by this as there seems to be no other way to get coins to play bundles unless you play the bundles, or watch ads. Since it already gives me alot of ads it doesn’t make sense to do this! I really liked they way it was before and miss the little notification you’d get saying it’s an ad game because of the support or whatever. I don’t understand if this is a glitch or an update. But I really feel as though it’s no longer living up to the game I originally downloaded. :(.Version: 2.0.2

Devs please read thisLove the game, concepts great, works well but PLEASE, PLEAAAAAASSEEE add some harder levels!! I just completed a level which was a lengthy quote which after filling in all of the letters that are given to you… I had to solve 2 letters… 2!! Even the “ultra hard levels” so far have been eh, might take an extra attempt to work them out but it’s not like a real challenge. The biggest challenge is the long quotes and that’s just because of trying to get through the length of them! Without that added challenge it’s basically the worlds easiest word search and just have a guess at this one or two words are that are missing a letter… I had an idea and I would be over the moon if you’d implement it! Can you do a type of level where you get no letters at all! But instead of the lives counting each mistake on a character you must complete the whole puzzle and click submit- if you have something wrong then you will lose a life! This would be insanely good, way more challenging and would be doing actual cryptography! Having to figure out where common letters are for 1,2,3 letter words, placing those letters else where to see what words are created, looking at double letters to help figure it out! That’s be great! Cheers.Version: 1.8.7

Ads are terribleI watched an ad to get revived and it didn’t even revive me. It wanted me to watch the ad again. This app is terrible, and it’s levels are boring. Please do not download for your own safety..Version: 1.9.8

Great game with tons of ADs!!First off, let me say, I love word games. Gameplay for this game can be challenging but that’s what makes it so fun!! The reason I’m leaving a 3/5 star review is that ads get in the way of gameplay. I understand that you may be a small company that rely on ads to make any money, but there are way too many. Example, there are daily challenges - before you begin to play an AD shows, sometimes you can skip after 5 seconds. Then after ad you start to play. A little time goes by in the game and the DURING gameplay, there are “AD breaks” where you have to watch another ad before resuming. These can happen multiple times in a game. Then once the level is finished, you watch another AD before continuing. I understand ads before or after but not before and after and during gameplay. I’d love to continue playing but these ads are too much!!!.Version: 1.8.7

Absurd forced ads during playingWhy are there multiple ads during gameplay that break your focus? Absolutely horrible. Ads should be between games or opt-in for bonuses. Was considering paying for ad-free until I encountered this scummy ad greed then decided to remove the app completely..Version: 1.9.8

Buggy with an annoying amount of ads.The game was originally pretty fun but I’ve had the game for about 3 days and I’ve had 2 puzzles become unsolvable because double-locked tiles don’t always unlock after you’ve solved the letters around it, which I wouldn’t mind if it were as simple as restarting but that resets the entire puzzle and you have to watch an ad to do so, and likely get another ad break while redoing it. The ad pacing would normally feel fine without the need to restart some levels, triggering more ads. It’s just frustrating to have to redo the puzzle at all, on top of having to watch the ads again, and sometimes losing event rewards in the process..Version: 1.9.7

Gold coinsI wish there was more ways to get gold coins and that it gives higher amount.Version: 2.0.2

Love the game however…..The ads! I understand you need to support the game but the ads are non-stop showing. I finish a level- ad. I try to get out of a level- ad. Try to go home- ad. There is even ad breaks for god sakes that you pay us 5 coins for…...Version: 1.9.8

I’ve never seen so many adsI get it. You need ads to pay the bills but holy wow people. You get an ad when you click on a level to play, at least one or two “ad breaks” during the level, another ad when you complete the level and then another one when you go back to select the next level. I played for no more than ten minutes and there were at least a dozen ads in that time. That’s excessive. It’s incredibly fun otherwise but the ads in the middle of the level break your concentration and momentum and completely ruin it..Version: 2.1.1

FINE!It’s, not what it was in the ad. They did all of this and this but no. It’s just filling in a word. I like it but I won’t play it as much as I thought..Version: 1.9.1

AdsToo many ads, I can’t even get through one puzzle without an ad….otherwise it would have been a great game..Version: 2.0.2

Far too many adsThere’s just too many ads to enjoy the game play, as soon as you get 7-8 letters a 60sec advert plays, before you can continue. Once you’ve completed a puzzle there’s yet another 60+ sec ad and then before it takes you to the next game you have the choice to watch an ad for extras or watch an ad to continue. I took a tally of 8-9 60+ second adverts for 12 of the puzzles completed. Deleting this game..Version: 2.0.5

So many ads...The gameplay is pretty fun but this app really has a boat load of ads. I totally get running ads and all mobile games have them, but this one has an especially high amount. It plays two different ads in between every level, and sometimes randomly forces you to watch one in the middle of a level. It makes sense to have one in between levels and have some to get hints/revive, but it feels like I'm constantly watching them. They also play the same ads over and over so it gets especially annoying. I just wish they'd cut it back a little..Version: 2.0.4

Nice easy gameNice easy game to play when I want to switch off. Wouldn’t say it’s very suitable for partially sighted or colour blind. Few repeats throughout the levels. Can play in airplane mode to avoid ads but there is a certain amount of ad watching needed to progress.Version: 1.8.7

Ads kill this gameI have played this occasionally for a few weeks, but the constant ads kill this app. I just tried to play a game, and I had to watch 3 ads and I’ve only just barely started the game. On the third ad, I closed the game, and decided not to bother. If this happens again, I will delete this app. It’s totally ridiculous the amount of ads these money hungry developers try to push on players. They would have more loyal followers and make more money with fewer ads. Having this many ads just turns people off. This makes your “interesting and challenging” app into just another “garbage” app. Extremely disappointing..Version: 2.0.2

Good but not as advertisedGame functions well and is enjoyable. I purchased the add free add on and it gives the game a nice quality of life for a reasonable price. Lives replenish at a good rate. A small number of issues makes the game grating on occasion • There are no categories available to chose from as advertised • Levels / phrases sometimes repeat after level 140 • You have to fill in every letter for every number (if A=3 you have you fill in all individual 3’s manually), where other apps have auto fill as an option. It would be nice to have that as it makes longer puzzles slightly frustrating • Timed challenges feel near impossible and rely on overly constant play in addition to luck - you somewhat rely on not coming across longer phrases.Version: 2.0.2

Ads ads ads adsAds get annoying really fast.Version: 2.0.4

Don’t recommendThe number of adds in this game is ridiculous, it takes you out of your mood.Version: 1.9.1

Good game but too many errorsI enjoyed the game to begin with as really gets your brain working however there’s 2 things that I found really annoying resulting in low stars and deleting the game. 1. The game has far too many adds especially when you’re in the middle of the game filling in a certain letter and you lose where you got to or which letter you was doing. 2. This one was the biggest annoyance, there were errors in the game which I noticed on the rock hits packs, the lyrics didn’t match up with what they claim the song is for example the lyrics were from a green day song yet it claimed it was foo fighters and another was it was lyrics from the same song but different parts of the song (not correct but an example to explain is the first line would be mid verse second line mid chorus), I can’t remember the exact lyrics they used but it was from twenty one pilots stressed out..Version: 1.9.7

Too many ads!!!!Good game, lots of puzzles but far too many ads. I don’t mind ads to get extra coins or hints, but even after completing a level you have to watch an ad and part way through the game you get ads which make you lose your train of thought and gets very frustrating.Version: 1.9.7

To many adsWay to many ads. Very disappointed.Version: 1.9.8

Intelllectual but with problemsThis games is very inteelectual allowing you to find out many new things jokes, and quotes but sometimes does freeze cause you to be unable to finish the levels and having to either move on or pay for coins due to their mistakes.Version: 1.9.8

Fun concept, unfair executionReally like the game as it’s fun and a good time waster. I paid for the ad-free version since I played so much and was happy to support the game. I knew that there would be voluntary ads, which is a bit annoying, but there hadn’t been a reason for me to need to watch them often. Now I’m short on coins to the point where I can’t afford any pack and have to either pay 15 dollars for 5000 coins (which wouldn’t buy me many packs, especially those which are 4000+), or watch ads to gain 200 coins at a time. I’m currently on 200ish coins and the cheapest pack left is 1990. A time wasted game shouldn’t be 10 minutes of ads. The packs themselves are okay. I wish the movie ones had quotes and facts rather than a scene by scene explanation..Version: 1.9.7

Ok at firstI found that when I reached a higher level the quotes started repeating. The ones early in the game seemed more difficult because I had never heard, nor would I ever have read anything to have seen these quotes or their authors. But by level175 the quotes became a little more familiar (like words to a song) and the authors became quite well known in our world today. But the repeating of quotes, when there are millions and millions available online or in quote books - seems a little lame to me. Maybe developer lost interest, I don’t know..Version: 2.0.2

To many adsLove the game but their is way to many ads less ads the better.Version: 1.9.1

It drains your battery, it it’s a fun game!This game is fun and engaging and challenging. I would give it 5 stars but decided to give three for a few reasons: 1. The ads. They are everywhere! At the start, end and middle of the puzzle. Yes, middle of the puzzle, which is annoying. This is a common complaint I see in the reviews. —— I did purchase the ad free version, because I really enjoyed it! 2. After a few days of having the app, I’ve noticed my battery is considerably lower after using it a short time. This is a bit suspicious as there are no high graphics or fast processing(at least I assume) so it makes me wonder if there are background programs running..Version: 1.9.8

Wayyyyy to many adsWay to many ads or guess the 95% alphabets!! You get only 3 wrongs!.Version: 1.9.8

FixLove the game but I don’t think its compatible with the latest iPhone update.Version: 1.9.8

Great but a few major flawsA great classic puzzle game! I paid the few dollars to remove ads, but the downside is, if you guess wrong more than three times you have to either watch an especially annoying ad or start the level over. Not an uncommon thing, but annoying. My main beef though is that I’ve apparently run out of new puzzles because they’ve started repeating phrases. Also, someone mentioned in another review that the puzzles are too hard, but they would definitely be in the minority because I haven’t encountered a level yet that had less than 80% of players able to solve it on the first try. So it becomes less of a challenge and more of a chore to just fill in all the letters you’ve already figured out..Version: 2.0.4

Unbelievable amount of adsThe ads are just getting ridiculous at this point smh.Version: 2.0.2

Would be great if bugs fixedI’m really enjoying this game although some levels give lots of letters and others only one or two but I’m stuck not finishing a pack because I have completed a puzzle but it’s frozen on it and won’t let me carry on! Very frustrating! Will hope for an update but if it doesn’t come soon then I’ll delete the game and try a different one.Version: 1.8.7

UnplayableSo I have played quite a few “free” games on my phone and have dealt with a reasonable amount of ads. This game though…… it’s completely unplayable due to the amount of ads that spring up. Even mid-puzzle an ad will just appear out of no where. You start a puzzle, there’s an ad, mid puzzle there’s an ad and maybe more than one depending on the amount of time it takes you to solve the problem. Any time you change the screen in this app there is an ad. The ads aren’t small ads either. Some are 30-45 seconds and others are a minute and a half long! I got so frustrated with all the ads that I just uninstalled the game completely. I will find another puzzle game that won’t throw a lifetime amount of ads at you in 15 minutes..Version: 2.0.5

Good game but!Ads are way to long. And for that reason I have deleted the game.Version: 1.9.8

Good game, when it’s playableYes, there’s almost more ads than game, and it makes my phone hot enough to burn within seconds of launching, and it lags so bad it takes a full 5 seconds to press any button and crashes the rest of my apps, but damn if it isn’t a fun game.Version: 1.9.8

Ads are ridiculousTitle says it all, way to many ads ….goodbye.Version: 2.0.4

Ruined by adsMy only criticism before the newest update was it is was a little too easy. No matter how far you progressed it doesn’t get any harder. Since the latest update I am too frustrated to finish a single level. Where previously there was an ad before and after every level which was understandable I have no issues with creators making money; there’s now mid level ads as well and a constant push to pay for ad free version. What before was a simple time waster game is now a complete waste of time..Version: 1.8.7

MistakesB I don’t really like it because it feels like I have to answer correct because otherwise I will have to watch a add..Version: 2.0.4

SuggestionI love Cryptograms BUT many are from a humanistic perspective. Would appreciate seeing quotes other than humanistic quotes..Version: 1.9.1

Overheated my phone!The puzzles themselves are fine, and I enjoy many of the quotes once they’re solved. My main complaint seems to fall in with most others’ reviews, as the ad breaks are obnoxious. In my case, my phone would begin heating up within 5 minutes of opening the app and starting a puzzle. Based on others’ reviews, I suspect the abundance of ads was causing the CPU strain. This evening was the first experience of the phone showing down significantly along with the heat. As much as I enjoy the levels, I will have to delete the app. I can’t risk long term damage to my phone over a puzzle game..Version: 2.0.2

Changed for the worseI enjoyed this game immensely until it all changed, before I did levels to earn coins to buy specific levels, film quotes, songs, now it is just random levels no choice and all the coins I had saved? Gone, this game is going the way of others in the deleted pile. Why ruin a good game? No longer the screen shots on the app page match. It’s a shame, was it greed? What reason could there be to change it so drastically?.Version: 2.0.2

Needs more addingNeeds to be more events or random levels. When there isn't an event its like wasting a level. Should be less ads and the reward shoud be bigger for completing levels seen as some of them cost over 2000. also it is very laggy and causes you to misinput letters.Version: 1.9.8

A Bit Of TrickeryPaid to get rid of ads only to realise that you need to feed your bank of coins to have a decent range of games to play. You only get 50 coins normally and the least game is 375 coins up to 2500. The only way to gain substantial coins is by watching an ad for 250 coins. Shame. Good game apart from that though it could be more difficult.Version: 1.9.1

Would be much better with more text passages.Seems to just cycle through the same text passages over and the over at which point it goes from being enjoyable to feeling like a waste of time..Version: 2.0.4

I like the game. Lots of bugs on every second adI like the game, is fun. However, if you are a casual player like and don’t mind the ads be aware every second ad the app will crash and stay there without moving on and the only solution is to close the app and open it again. Hopefully the team will be able to fix it. Otherwise, is fun..Version: 1.9.7

Great concept, unenjoyable experienceThis game honestly seems like a fantastic concept with the potential to be a lot of fun. However, the constant barrage of ads make it impossible to enjoy. I was on my third puzzle and had seen about ten ads already. I can understand ads in between puzzles, but during one single level, I was interrupted 4 times and I was only about three quarters through. It completely ruins any sort of fun and doesn’t give you a chance to play enough to see if you actually like it enough to pay actual money for. Deleted almost as soon as I downloaded..Version: 1.9.8

Fake quotesSome quotes with wrong attributions, and others so repetitive that they’re easy to guess. Possibly AI generated. Look for “vibrant”, “symphony”, and “tapestry”. Good game concept, disappointing to play for long..Version: 2.0.2

Good app but it is adwareI love the app. Nice graphics. But the developer has injected advertisements where ever possible. Make 3 mistakes? Watch an ad. Want a new pack? Watch ads to get the coins. Completing a pack gets you 500 coins but the packs cost over 1000. It is designed to lead you back to advertisements. Want to open a chest? Just get 150 keys. Each puzzle in a pack gets you roughly 3 keys so you need to solve 5 packs at a cost of over 5000 coins. The chest won’t give you back 5000 coins, so it is another way to sell more advertisements. I really love the game but I waste SO much time on the ads it starts to seem like I am watching ads more than I am playing the game. By the way, I paid the real money for no ads but realized I still have to watch them if I want new packs. SO much promise only to ask users to pay the price..Version: 1.9.1

Limited UseI enjoyed this at first, even after being interrupted by multiple ads in a single puzzle. Then the ads became more intrusive with multiple layers and cryptic tactics to dismiss them. Even that I may have endured a bit longer, but the puzzles themselves started to vary such that many had so many clues that there was no challenge at all. I thought to myself, “Why am I wasting my time just filling in letters on these stupid quotes from musicians I don’t agree with?” Then I wrote this review and proceeded to delete the app. Hope this helps someone..Version: 2.0.5

Good for boredom, until…I’m on level 205 and I’ve noticed that the levels have started to repeat. On some levels, an entire word is already filled in by the system, or there’s a weird issue with the syntax when they have strange quotes. I noticed a couple of spelling mistakes as well so if you’re looking for a streamlined game, you’re better off finding something else. It’s one of those games that’s clearly a cash grab, so just be aware of that when you download this game. It’ll play ads while you’re in the middle of the puzzle and it’s $5 to remove ads. That being said it’s great for wasting time at work, so if that’s what you’re looking for you’re in a good spot..Version: 2.0.2

Daily challenge not savedDaily challenge are never saved and have to been redone.Version: 1.9.8

Tooooo many adsAfter every puzzle, even if the puzzle is 5 words..Version: 2.0.2

Another flopChallenging game. Could be fun. But omg the endless ads. I don’t mind a few ads, the developers need to make money but there’s aren’t 30 seconds of my time they’re interminable! And if you leave a game in the middle getting back in seems to have an endless ad, way too long for me to bother waiting. I’m moving on thanks..Version: 1.9.8

More ads?Honestly I was enjoying it and I can deal with an ad, can’t be helped, it’s to be expected, every game has them but now we’re getting ad breaks in the middle of the game and a measly +5 for it? There’s already an ad after every level and an ad when you choose the free 50 or to watch an ad for 250 regardless of what you choose. Not happy at all to be honest, and will probably be deleting this app because as fun as it is, it’s not worth the amount of ads I’m being forced to watch. And a measly +5 while it disrupts my game? No thank you..Version: 1.8.7

Way too many adsI can’t even go a minute without an ad popping up.Version: 2.0.2

Ads Ads AdsThey have so many ads & they are loooong. Longer than any other game I’ve played. I bought the no ads feature and I still got the same loooong ads. I asked for a refund. Don’t waste your time.Version: 2.0.4

Fix your appJust downloaded your game and made it to level 3 then it freezes. I deleted it..Version: 2.0.2

Disappointing game!!It started off good, I was enjoying the game until one of the puzzles I completed was sickening and completely insensitive towards people with visual impairment! Puzzles like this shouldn’t be on there for fun or jokey purposes. It’s very ignorant to have that. Making a joke out of someone’s disability is disgraceful! There’s also children that play this game so you’re teaching young children that it’s ok to disrespect or violate someone by their disability! Absolutely disgusting behaviour!.Version: 1.8.1

Too easyThis game is perpetually in baby-mode, I’ve put in hours hoping it will get more challenging, but it just doesn’t, very disappointing.Version: 1.9.1

It has its upsides and down sidesIts a good game and im having fun with it. The only problems i have are; that they are so many adverts between every level and when trying to navigate the game. That i can’t change the language settings between UK English and US English as the spelling of words are different. Playing these games with dyslexia is difficult enough without throwing in a whole different way of spelling in..Version: 1.9.8

One of the worst apps for adsHas to be one of the worst apps I have tried for ad interruptions. Also will not save progress on daily puzzles. If you leave it, you start over - ridiculous!.Version: 1.9.8

Good but…It would be a great game, if you could actually enjoy it without the constant ads popping up everywhere and every time you do something in the game. There’s even an “ad break” many times during the game, when you are just playing, and you have to watch an ad… Deleted after a few hours. What a shame!.Version: 1.9.7

Boring, ads between every levelEasy puzzles but tedious way of entering in the letters - I don’t understand why you have to manually enter each letter once you figure out the correct one. It’s obvious when it’s the correct one because it won’t come up as a mistake so just fill in all of the corresponding numbers for me… Also, puzzles are simple so they take less than a minute to solve yst there’s still an ad between every level. Deleted after less than 5min..Version: 2.0.2

GlitchyGlitchy app finish a clue it locks up!.Version: 2.0.2

Not working anymoreThe game started freezing every time I tried to play so I uninstalled it and tried again (which meant starting from the beginning) and I haven’t even played 8 levels and it is freezing again.Version: 1.9.1

Ads, ads, adsGreat game format but honestly, I’ve never seen so many ads. Looking for another product now..Version: 2.0.2

Kicked outAs soon as I got in I got kicked out of the game.Version: 1.9.8

Fun but the AdsI saw an ad (ironically) for this game that said it had no ads and so I downloaded it. There are ads. Like any other game you pay if you don’t want ads, and there are a lot of ads. At one point it stopped me midway through a level for what it called an “ad break”, which was very annoying. I’ve had ads before a level, during a level, after a level, when I buy a new level even though I just watched an ad for finishing a level! It was a fun game at first, but you can’t get into it because of all the gosh darn ads. Shame.Version: 1.9.8

AdsPretty sure it’s been said. Mid game ads are out of order, totally wrecks the experience when it interrupts you..Version: 1.9.7

Ads everywhereAds before the level, DURING the level, and after the level? Not a chance. Played for 10 minutes and deleted it..Version: 2.0.4

Cool idea bad executionThe idea seems really unique and cool but whether it is a flaw in design or the nature of the puzzle many puzzles are literally unsolvable without blind guessing and hints. You are often left in a position where you are effectively playing hangman but unlike hangman you have to guess the letter and where it goes to get confirmation. Ive had multiple puzzles where it started with only 2 letters and both were already completed so i had no possible way of placing a single letter without random guessing. You can do minesweeper deduction logic where you make assumptions and see if they make sense but without the ability to play letters in the wrong spot instead of just being told you are wrong that is impractical. If i could turn autocheck off it would be an alright puzzle game but with it on the game is just a lot of random guessing or watching ads for hints to get an actually reasonable number of starting letters. Above all that the ads are so intrusive trying to navigate the menu to pick a category requires watching sometimes 4+ ads in a 30 second period. Thats not a huge problem though because if the game is good i would just pay to remove ads but its not so its not worth it..Version: 1.9.1

Battery destroyerOk so I really enjoy playing this game for the most part but it has some glaring flaws that ruin the experience for me. First of all, it absolutely DESTROYS my battery like nothing I’ve ever seen. I can play any other game on my phone off and on all day without issue, but with this game suddenly I’m in low power mode after only a couple rounds. (When it was fully charged all of 2 hours ago). I wish I would’ve played it more before I paid the 5 bucks to remove ads but that’s my bad. Speaking of the 5 bucks to remove ads, that’s a laugh in itself considering you still have to watch 3 minute videos every time you need a hint or need to revive. Which by the way, of all the “mistakes” I’ve made probably 90% of them are actually either the game lagging or clumsy thumbs. So you get 3 chances to clumsily select the wrong letter per round then you get to watch a 3 minute (interactive) video ad each time after that. I understand how mobile games earn their creators money, but this particular setup feels really greedy to me..Version: 2.0.4

Lost PotentialThis game concept itself is GREAT! It keeps you entertained and tuned in, but there are so many negatives that I deleted the game after two days. -Way too many ADS!!! I understand you have to live but there are so many ads in this game that not only have I deleted the game, I also refused to download or purchase from any of the games or merchants from the ads that I’ve seen. It’s actually very counterproductive. There’s an ad to start the game, to end the game, as breaks when you take a long time on a longer puzzle, add to even go to a new screen within the game (checking event status, coin buying screen, etc) -After reading other reviews, I’m glad I didn’t pay for the ad free version because there STILL seems to be an overload of ads. -If you play the game too long, the game will start to lag tremendously and it overheats your phone. Eventually, you have to force close the game and wait to reopen it after your phone cools down. -It’s built to have the user paying. It’s inevitable that you will have to pay for something, REGARDLESS of the excessive ads. It could be an amazing game and it was great for two days but you’ll only be playing the game 50% of the time that you’re on the app. As much as I hate Royal Match ads, at least they don’t have ads in the game..Version: 2.0.4

Too many adsToo many ads for this to be enjoyable..Version: 1.9.8

Impossible to play with the amount of adsSuch a pity that it’s absolutely full of ads because it’s a fun app. Constant ad breaks, ads between games, ads for any reward = you spend more time looking at ads than playing. NOT WORTH YOUR TIME!.Version: 2.0.4

Fun game, but the number of ads is absurdI like the game itself a lot, but the number of ads is honestly absurd. I don’t mind having a couple ads in a game; I understand that developers want to make money. But here, you have to watch an ad before you play a level, DURING the level if you take “too” long (sometimes more than once! and it’s really not even that long!), after the level, so on and so forth. I’ll probably look for a similar game from a different developer because I really feel like I’m watching more ads than I am playing the game..Version: 1.9.7

Bad reviewI love this game and i could play loads of it. But the ADVERTS are taking the mick. Example when u loose a game and it come up with the options home,restart, and another try but for another try u have to watch an advert. But what i wont get is when u press on restart it comes up with a 30 second advert and it shouldn’t because it already takes a life from you! if the game carries on with this advert problem i will be finding a different one! SORT YOUR GAME OUT!!!!.Version: 2.0.4

Starts okay….And I don’t mind ads…. they start out as occasional ads, then they are after every round, then they are after every round AND they interrupt the round. It’s not that exciting a game to tolerate that many ads. You haven’t done enough work to earn that much of my time. Also, would rather NOT have a bunch of it filled in and only 3 strikes. It becomes more filling in the blanks than puzzling. Kind of lame..Version: 2.0.2

Too many ads drains batteryThere are far to many ads which causes battery drain. Fun game for the brain but tired of battery drain.Version: 1.9.8

Game brokenSince the last update game doesn’t work. Game opens but unable to click on anything. I guess making sure ads worked was more important than game play. Oh, and you should fire your QA staff. Happy Holidays..Version: 1.9.5

Waiting timeI enjoy this game, what I do hate is having to wait a whole minute (60 seconds) watching some boorish advert that is not in the game’s play. Get a letter wrong, minute out of my life gone, finish the game, another hour gone. I have paid to get rid of the adverts half way through the game..Version: 1.9.7
