Great fun!

Update: even at a couple of years later I'm still enjoying this unique word game. Now it's all ready for ios8!
At first I thought this was going to be too complicated, or "something", but bought the app to give it a try. Now, a few months later it is right up there as one of my favorite games along with Words With Friends. REALLY like the feature that allows a game between up to four players! Would like to see this game come out in HD for the iPad, but, the way it is right now it does double up just fine and with nice screen detail.

Excellent execution and super fun

This game is so well developed, polished and executed, it runs around in circles to the likes of Words With Friends and Scrabble. Hats off to this developer, for sure! I have played this game for years and love it even more now with this latest release. Thank you!!

Simply one of the best multiplayer

I rarely think of games as five star but this one qualifies hands down. Challenging and well thought out game play mechanics. I like the iPhone's Scrabble, I love Worlds with Friends, but I am pwned by Hexalex.

I'm looking forward to anything new by this developer. Well worth the coupla bucks.

5/5 stars with latest update, so happy it's been touched up. Bummed that it wasn't released as a universal to fill an iPad screen. Oh well - it's still very playable on my iPad.

I'm happy to play anyone - glecko is the name to search
