Finally something to get me off Candy Crush!
Nice to have a game where I have to use my brain, instead of mindless other games. Reminds me a lot of "Every Word" for Kindle. Only real problem has been, some of the words I don't think are real, and there have been times I've typed in a word, it doesn't work, but works after getting my 7 letter one. Weird.
The board, buttons and gameplay aspects are good, with a little room for improvement. Response time is good and I haven't run across any bugs that are excessively laggy on an iPhone 6. This part of the game would rate 3.5 to 4 stars.
The choices of words for solutions are frustrating. The game is inconsistent on whether abbreviations, contractions, slang and jargon can be used. Worst of all, words aren't even consistent on accepted words from puzzle to puzzle! "Nil" is my current example of that - needed in one puzzle but not permitted in another.
What dictionary is being used?
Good concept, but frustrating to play. I've tried to play words and have them not register as valid, and then they pop up on the list when I give up. Also, fairly well-known words are not accepted (gam, caul) while slangy or obscure words are allowed. There's no rhyme or reason to it.
