Addicting. Not boring. 2.5 hours straight and can't put it down!
May 24
(4★) A great brain challenge
Love the larger number of tiles and the chance to track your scores and beat them. It would be nice when using bonus tiles
together if there were more points applied. Other than that, love it!
May 16
(5★) Addictive and fun
I like this game. The only problem I have is that when I try to resume a game after a long pause, the tiles overlap and cannot be
played so I have to start a new game.

(5★) Engaging!
It's mesmerizing to play and try to beat your own score!
Apr 20
(4★) Good
Try it. It's the only way to really know if you'll like it. It's free, so what do you have to lose?

I like the game but wish it had less ads.

(4★) Good brain exercise!
Keeps your brain fresh trying to find words in any possible direction and figuring out how to move a letter out of your way so you
can get others to line up

Fun and addictive. You just want to keep playing to get a better score. Just started playing and cannot stop.

(4★) Nice but go for the ad free one!
I enjoy word games, but the ads in between are too long.
Mar 26
(5★) Pops
Great game! Would appreciate the removal of the stupid ads!
Mar 23
(5★) So Much Fun!
I enjoy standard mode. For me, it's not about the score, it's about spotting uncommon words or trying to get rid of all the
letters. Regardless of how I play, it's a nice way to unwind!
(5★) No Complaints
Easy to play, challenging at times.

I keep coming back to play.every day!

(5★) Fun; Addictive
Love the game. Forces you to look for longer words, and to strategize to form their bonus words. Love that they don't prompt you
to contact "friends" to move to another level. Ads are not too annoy
(2★) They ruined it.
This was my favorite game.until the last time they updated it. I loved the Extended Mode, so of course they did away with it. Now
the game locks up during play and can't be recovered. All your progres

The game is good for keeping ones mind busy. The levels are good - just enough challenge to keep it interesting. The music is not
as bad as some games. Overall I enjoy this game very much.

(4★) Pretty good
The game is great I really enjoy it. I think there is an over abundance of ads.
(3★) Paid, still see ads
This would be 5 (10!) star but I paid to have ads removed and after upgrading my phone, ads are back & yet no option to pay again
either. The ads are a deal breaker. 30 seconds for every 2 minute game

The game itself is fun, but the allowed words are puzzling. It includes some very obscure words, and the disallows some much more
common ones. Also the ads are more than annoying. The same ad will

This game is so much fun and really addictive! I could sit and play this game for hours! Definitely a word game worth playing.
(2★) Too many missing words
It is a fun game overall but there is no real challenge to it whatsoever. Many words simply do not exist in its dictionary such
