I waited to write a review until I made it to the top of the ladder. Most of the words are common sense some of the words really can stump you. But every day you get free hints and it's only 1 hint whether you want to reveal only the letters in the word or just reveal 1 letter. Once in a while a pop up comes up asking you if you want a bonus "reward" today was the first time I tried. Well that was so worth it in the future to rack up hints. It's a 20 second ad for 2 hints, big deal. All my other games I constantly get 30 second pop ups and get nothing in the end with no choice of watching it or not. All in all a great game to play for a quick hit or a boring afternoon!!


Good Crossword game but ... $9.99?

This is a fun and often challenging crossword game. I’m giving it one star (⭐️) because they want $9.99 to get rid of advertisements. I don’t mind paying to stop the intrusive and obnoxious advertisements but I think $9.99 is way too much. I hate apps that are just platforms for advertising. I would rather delete the app than be forced to endure advertisements! I would never buy anything based on this form of advertising. I’m old enough to remember the original lure of payed cable tv, no advertising, that’s why it was payed up front.

Still waiting for the update offering ad free. Oh, by the way I'm a 65 year old man and am really not interested in buying myself woman's clothing…

Developer Response

Hi, we're sorry to hear you're not completely satisfied with our game. The $9.99 USD in-game item is actually for 100 hints as well as turning off the ads. We do appreciate that some players just don't want to see ads, and we'll look into whether we can offer this option on its own in a future update.


Good game but....

If you love word games then this one is sure to satisfy your needs. I waited to write a review until I completed the entire first mountain but I found myself feeling let down that there wasn’t any reward feeling for doing so after all those words to reach it!! No fanfare, no reward except a little flashing flag at the peak. I will keep the game just as a time passer if I need one but I won’t continue to pursue the next peak with any sort of anticipation!
