Customer Reviews


I very much dislike that if someone challenges you/wants to play with you, you have to play or else it counts as a loss. This is totally unfair. There are people who challenge me whom I really, really, really don't want to play with, but if I don't, I have to take a loss, which affects my stats and winning streak negatively. This one player challenged me and called me all kinds of rude names, and there's no way for me to block them or not play with them, unless I want a loss. This is particularly annoying, bc the people who do this kind of thing can just keep challenging you, again and again and again, and they can send you rude messages over and over. Please fix this, Zynga, or else I cannot give you a good rating.
Also, I don't understand why/how tournaments affect your win/loss ratio, or if they should at all. It seems like things should be consistent. And how do the tournaments affect your stats? There is no explanation. If, for example, I don't get first place in the daily challenge, does that mean it affects/hurts my winning streak? Or do tournaments affect it? I dislike this aspect of the game, bc it doesn't really reflect how good a player is. You can play a lot of tournaments, but if you lose one round (like the finals), it could hurt your winning streak, which makes it a reason not to play the tournaments, even though they're fun. These issues need to be addressed.

Vary the board

The big paragraph below is my initial review. My updated review is one star and will always be one star until you stop repeating daily challenges.

I love playing this and am glad you have the daily challenges. Do the daily challenge boards have to be so similar all the time? I'm no mathematician but I think statistically you shouldn't yet have to start repeating. Or even using similar boards. It's just not that exciting anymore to spell "painters" "retiled," "plated," "patent," "smilers," "trainers," etc. I'm sure you have studies that show that people enjoy playing more when they can spell lots of words like that, but now it's just kind of boring. Also, why not have a triple word square on the themed puzzles?

UPDATE: I guess it's been a couple months since I first wrote this. I am passed even caring about new boards on the daily challenges. I don't expect them to be new and they usually aren't. But I keep wondering why. I can't imagine that it's too difficult to create new boards. Surely there is a reason you don't, right? The curiosity is killing me. I would almost rather find out WHY you don't make new boards than have you ACTUALLY MAKE NEW BOARDS.

Extremely flawed

I play this game a lot. I do it because I love the idea of it. At the core, the mechanics of the game, as a pure, speed-based crossword game is something I find extremely entertaining.

It's all the junk around it where zynga completely fails to deliver.

The game is horribly glitchy during single player play. It freezes up two or three times during each round, for up to three or four seconds, breaking momentum during play. Why? It doesn't seem to be terribly processor intensive?
Also, about 5 to 10% of tournament games, which for some reason generally run smoothly, crash me out and force me to restart the app and counting the crash as a loss. And I think I see at least one person crash out in about 40% of all tournaments. It's a mess.

Power ups ruin the purity of the game. I understand the need to try and balance the game between different player levels. But I also don't know what actually beat me. The player or the power ups? Maybe indicate what power ups were used by players somehow?
Tickets and coins are a worthless distraction. The idiotic spinner just gets in the way and is a waste of time for players just wanting to get to the game.

All that said, the foundation is solid and I like the tournament mode addition. There's just too much unnecessary crap around it. And please fix the crash bugs.
