Give it a try
Not a bad game- would recommend for anyone who knows english and wants a word game/story to pass the time. And, I mean, it's free.
There are a few spelling errors, but they aren't critical and can be overlooked (unless you despise that stuff). Main complaint is that many of the words are either too specific or something I wouldn't think of/don't know, so many times I had to look it up on the Internet. I never had enough coins, I felt.
The story is interesting (not bestselling novel quality, but good for a free game) and is something you can easily put down and pick up again- if you've forgotten the story, you can always go back and read it again. All in all, it was a good diversion, but sometimes frustrating. It panders to certain people and tastes, so if you're feeling it, give it a whirl, see if you like it. It's free, after all.
Not a bad game
This game is kinda cool. My only complaint would be there are no clues to help you with the words, so if you are just learning the English language or not familiar with certain jargon from various lifestyles, you have no place to turn, but wait and ask a friend (hate it for you if you were traveling and were forced to talk with a stranger...lol). The game needs lifelines, so to speak so you stand a fighting chance on moving to the next page and I was stranded on a page for a month until I dreamt up the word comic and now I am stuck again and I just hope I magically come up with an "e" word where many others could have worked; it's just not what the creator of the game had in mind.....
While I like the premise, there are a lot of problems with this game. Clearly, it wasn't edited very well (an early letter by Ashley to Linus addresses him as "Ashley," among many other things). Also, some words are difficult to guess, especially two-word phrases that have been shoved into one box to form one word and the words that have no context clues at all (hoping for some IAP money, no doubt). Also, the storyline is fairly unbelievable: a reporter thinks a guy sending her emails is a crank, but he writes, "I'm a secret agent," and all of a sudden she believes him? On the plus side, at least it's free. I'd like to see a sequel or another game with the same premise but better execution.
