Customer Reviews

Wish I'd read the reviews before buying!

This game is great if you like simple word searches and have good eyesight. I don't.

I bought this game without reading the reviews because I like another one of this company's games and figured this one would be at least okay. It wasn't.

The description of this game says there's some sort of mystery to be solved. There isn't.

Surely the company reads its own reviews. If so, they know they're misleading people, and they should change the description's text. They haven't.

Sure, $1.99 isn't much, but it was ~my~ $1.99, and they have, in effect, stolen it. They should be ashamed.

Word Detective

I am very disappointed with this game. It seems very juvenile, has no challenges, More info. Is needed re: how this game should be played. Ex: are we supposed to finish out one category before starting another? How many games are in each category? Is there a running score? What is the goal of this game (outside of finishing tach game/puzzle? Is the goal to get more or less points and how much is each game worth? Is there a running total? I have to say again that I'm very disappointed and sorry I purchased this app. I hope you will update and give more info. In the future.


It is an addicting little word search. You detect words, I suppose that is where they came up with the name. Honestly I was hoping for a mystery detective game, but I have always enjoyed word searches, so........however, it is annoying that some of the words are misspelled, (academic is spelled as acedemic). Actually, I enjoy the game!
