Pretty Cool

This is a pretty fun app. I enjoy trying to solve the puzzles in my spare time. The only thing I don't like about it is that when you guess a correct letter, it doesn't fill in all the places where that letter is, just one. You don't know if there is another one or not, which threw me off initially.

The other thing I wish it had was a way to come back to one puzzle later and work on another one in the meantime. Or at least give an option to give up and move on. You can't get to the next puzzle until you finish the one you're on, which is fine unless you're totally stumped. Then you're in a deadlock.

Other than those two things, I do like the app. I may upgrade to see if either of thise things are different in the paid version.

Great game but reward system needs improvement

I really enjoy this game, it's great,?however there are too many ads and because you cannot purchase the app you have to deal with constant interruptions. I would much rather just purchased the app to avoid the ridiculous amount of ads. The only Way that you can avoid the ads is to earn gold coins and pay in the app itself, and there are limits around that as well. I won't be putting up with that for much longer. Also the reward system doesn't make any sense. Gold coins are earned in the same amount for every single phrase, no matter the difficulty level nor your speed in resolving the phrase. The developers really need to get more creative with this to keep people coming back. I hope that happens because it really is a good game.

Fun, challenging. However:

I enjoy word games and initially I really liked this game. It is still A good app. However it could benefit greatly with a few modifications by the programmers, specifically (1) The reward for a puzzle solved without the use of any hints should be greater. (2) Some puzzles have a woefully insufficient number of purple letters (for example, one in the Body Parts section has multiple stacked words with one hint letter for the lot of them.).(3) It would be more equitable to give us a chance to solve them without having to spend an increasing quantity of gold, then paying real-life money to buy more.

I will write an addendum if or when you fix these problems. If not, I may consider uninstalling it.
