Fun game but iap's are not disclosed


A word association game that makes for a good time waster. Most puzzles are fairly easy and then a few (but not many) will surprise you. There's plenty of hints earned in each round. Controls are easy. Just tap your answers. Unfortunately, I did not give it a full 5 stars because this is actually not a free game. I believe strongly that developers should get paid for their work. But.... I also believe that consumers should know what they are getting. You can play some levels, but then the game offers you to pay for other ones. Normally, I think this is great. But... in the description, nothing states that there are in-app purchases. I've noticed that other games by the same developer actually have this statement. I have made in app purchase in some of this dev's other games. Don't get me wrong.... the games are good. But it's not actually free if you have to pay to play or suffer through nag screens.
My suggestion would be to disclose that there are Iap's and offer some harder puzzles in the sample ones.

No sound control

Dawn Grobe

I haven’t even gotten very far in playing this game because I am annoyed from the outset. I hate game sounds. I like to listen to podcasts or music, or even just not have sound, while I play games.

As soon as I started this game, and its sequel, my podcast stopped. I went straight to the options and clicked on the sound option to turn the sound off. I am not sure what sound (music maybe) it turned off because every click makes a sound, every time you make a connection there’s a sound, and every transition makes a sound.

Sounds add nothing to games for me and I shouldn’t have to mute my phone when I play a game.

Good game


I enjoy the game but it keeps deleting achievements after I reach them. I go into 🏆 section and see I've accomplished them....then when I complete another and go back to view new achievement and prior achievements are wiped out. Frustrating!
