Fun but quirks are annoying
This game is a lot of fun and a nice hybrid of crossword and jigsaw puzzles. However, when there is a single letter, it is difficult to move on the iPhone since it is so small. Another peeve of mine is when the puzzle creator uses two polar opposite possible answers to the clue in the same puzzle. For example, the clue was court and the puzzle used answers mostly from a judicial court (lawyer, judge, etc). But then they also put two sports courts in as well!
Generally the completed puzzle size is good. Today's daily puzzle of Office Politics was just too big. Broken up and completed, the puzzle didn't completely fit on my phone's screen. I had to move the bigger portion multiple times because I ran into the edge of the game screen as well. This was very frustrating and why I decided to leave a review. Creators, please limit the overall size of the puzzle because this really detracted from my enjoyment of the game today.
A great twist on crosswords
I'm always looking for games that will hold my interest over time, and finally I found one. At first the game seemed ridiculously easy, but the difficulty level varies enough with each puzzle and has a good level of challenge. I love how it's not necessary to "pay to advance." There are a lot of puzzles and ways to earn credits to get more.
I'm always waiting for the next daily challenge!
My only minor complaint is that I wish there was a way to save the daily puzzle for later. Once the next day rolls around I lose my progress on a puzzle if I was working on it in the night but didn't get to finish it.
FAVORITE! - Plus they fixed earlier update issues!
-Back to 5 stars! ... Bonza immediately fixed the annoying issues in their earlier update; no more pop-ups in the middle of a game, and now players can choose whether or not to watch videos to earn more points. Sometimes i do watch the videos if i dont have enough points for a hint; i like the fact that i have the choice. Back to the A1, first-class app! Even more so now!
- Addendum after update:
I had to dock two stars :-(.
The "update" is not a benefit to game players, but an annoyance of pop-ups in attempts to get players to "earn hints" by "watching videos".
These pop-up things are quite subtle, and not obstructive or obnoxious like so many others... But they are a bother; and they definitely cheapen this (once) class-act app.
I'm not a big game player, but love word games and puzzles. This is the perfect combo! No gimmicks, obnoxious cartoony stuff, or ads. Fun, challenging, but not overstimulating. Perfect!
