★ Now with Retina graphics for the NEW iPad! ★
Conundra is a simple anagram game that is easy to learn, but hard to put down. Solve anagrams that are from from six to ten letters long. See how your performance varies over time and by time of day and day of the week. A great way to find out when your thinking is sharpest!
Conundra is a fantastic way to improve your performance in games like Scrabble, the jumble, cryptic crosswords, and countdown. (We're not kidding about this--try it for a week and see how much your Scrabble scores improve!) It is also great for improving spelling and vocabulary. It takes some serious skill to get a perfect game, but that is what makes it so addictive!
★ Three free levels
★ Great for building vocabulary and spelling skills
★ Perfect training for games like Scrabble, the jumble, Boggle
★ Tracks your scores over time
★ Shows how performance varies by time of day
★ Paid levels with longer words for those who need an extra challenge
★ A fun mental exercise to keep your brain sharp!
What's New in Version 1.7
- Now with retina graphics for the new iPad! Some images that were not retina on the iPhone have also been fixed.
- Practice mode is now more like regular levels, with a stats report after each five words that lets you see how you are doing and check definitions for words you don’t know. There is still no timer though, so it is more relaxing than the other timed levels.
Needs bug fixes
This is a good and challenging game. However, it needs to be better maintained by the developer. There are several bugs that need correcting. For example, words verified as correctly spelled are not recognized as such by the app. Also, words that are really not commonly used and somewhat architect should not be included in the Easy Play mode. This is a good game with much potential but please provide more regular maintenance updates. You may also want to include new words to the play dictionary as the same words are often repeated.
Very Fun Addicting Game
I am pleasantly suprised! The game is challenging, yet very straight-forward design. I haven't played enough to check out the stats for different times of day, etc., and look forward to seening this. I suppose I might end up paying for the upgrade, but the ads are not that distracting, so it would be more the the playing options.
Addictive, but oops!
Loved the graphics and was really getting into the basics of the game, just using practice rounds. Just in that time I encountered three times when I composed the correct word , as shown when I finally passed. Great idea for a game with wonderful visuals and basic ease of use BUT too many bugs for my taste...Thought this was an improved version too
Also wouldn't allow me to send message through the "help" page either ... I'll give it a couple of more editions to work out more bugs!
