Nice on many levels, just one annoying flaw


I like this game. It's well designed, has no annoying pop ups or ads that intrude on your play. I even like the music, which is more than I can say about any other game I've ever played. The game itself is basic but can be challenging as well.

It had only one flaw, but it's a big one. I've played this game for many hours, but I'm about ready to throw my phone across the room because the background moves the same way the pieces move. What I mean is that you use one finger to move the (teeny tiny, on a phone screen) word fragments around, but the whole screen also moves with only one finger. So when you mean to reach for a word, you often end up moving the whole board. It's maddening and entirely unnecessary. Simply make the background adjustable with two fingers rather than one. I mean, who thought this was a good design?

Please fix this intensely irritating flaw.

Great Game - possible improvements


I’ve been playing this game for a few months now, and really enjoy it. I do have a few ideas for improvements.

1. Right now when you complete a puzzle the screen quickly changes to a zoomed out view and the request to watch a video or play another daily shuffle pops up. This prevents the player from being able to see the completed puzzle in detail. Sometimes I struggle with the last word and am just trying various combinations. The screen changes so fast I don’t even know what that last word was.

2 It May not be worth the effort, but being able to type in a letter and have all of those letters throughout the screen light up would be helpful and keep the eyes from crossing.

It’s been a year and I still play


I have a short attention span for phone games but I just keep coming back to this one. It’s not repetitive; there’s a huge range of topics; and the game doesn’t badger you to make in-app purchases. The use of ads in this game is clever because you always have the option of turning them down, but if you choose to watch it it gives you double the “reward” for completing a puzzle, which then can go towards unlocking the next puzzle pack. If you get stuck on a puzzle, you can get hints by watching short ads, which again, are optional. I showed this game to my parents who now also play it!
