Word Genius HD
By Catnip Media
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
How many words can you find in the letter scramble? If you can find all the words that are recognized in the dictionary, you're a Word Genius!
Word Genius will really test your grey matter as you try to find as many words as possible from randomly generated boards. Choose from six board sizes ranging from 3x3 to 8x8 and three different modes of play.
You can play against a timer in increments from 1 to 15 minutes. You can play to complete the standard board in any one of six sizes with unlimited time. You can play to complete the Genius board that has more than 1000 words hiding in the 4x4 format. No matter how you play, you'll find a challenge waiting for you in this brain buster of a game.
If you love to make your brain smile, be sure to download Peg Genius too. There's just one word for that - smart!
What's New in Version 1.1
This version fixes a crashing bug introduced in iOS 5.0 due
to not being able to select menu items.
Also, this contains a handful of other features.
- Word Genius is now a universal app (it works on both iPhone and iPad without a separate purchase)
- New word list which removes archaic words
- Now uses Apple's built in dictionary
Used to be my favorite game, but current version is buggy and has changed. In the past I recommended this to many people who loved it. Now, it gets two stars at best and I can't recommend it.
What I don't like about the new game:
1) sounds. They've changed the sounds to be like the old iPhone version. But I liked the old iPad sounds better. Nothing better than hearing the bell when you get a word
First, I had a game in progress when the update went out. I couldn't get out of that game. Quit game did nothing, neither did killing the app and restarting it or even restarting the iPad. I had to delete the app and reinstall to be able to quit a game. Now all my history is gone.
Second, the clock/timer doesn't show completely. It's cut off on top. What's worse, it seems to get more and more cut off (slip up the screen) as you play.
Third, though I only experienced this with one game that I noticed it on, if you play a game on completion, leave Word Genius and go back and then continue the same game, some of the previously found words will now not be found and you have to "find" them again. But not all, only a few words. I confirmed this with one game where the word it accepted was "reset" which it accepted and then I found other words. I quit, went back, many of the other words were there that i had found after "reset" but not "reset". I did this at least twice.
Please: fix the bugs, and at least give an option for the old sounds.
Love this game, why did you change the sounds.
Been playing this since it came out. Saw an update said sure why not, now I have this pathetic twangy sound instead of my familiar ding. Why??? Would have been five stars if you could have left my sounds alone or given me the option to pick the tones. The new sounds are sickly at best!
Hate new sounds!
Love this game play it every day with husband and kids. I absolutely cannot stand the new sound! I will remove it from my iPad because of this. You cannot tell when you score. The sound stays the same. Please go back to original!!!
