Nicely done but needs some tweaks
Update: The game still crashes frequently. There are two things that seem to make the game crash. This could be a coincidence but I notice that when the game crashes in the middle of a board, I happen to have a new email in my inbox. It's possible that the mail client or something to do with device usage is conflicting with the game. In addition the game crashes frequently at the beginning of new boards either during or at the point of new tiles falling or immediately thereafter. Maybe this will help troubleshooting. I hope so because the game crashes way too frequently. This is stopping me from buying in game purchases so if you want more $, I highly suggest you fix this!!
So far this is my favorite word game for the iPad. The game's graphics are a bit plain but game play is fast and smooth. The price is nice and you get 3 levels from which to choose. If you want more challenging games you have the option to purchase them within the game. So why no five star rating? Well it crashes quite often and when it does it does not always save your progress so you are forced to redo some of your work. Additionally, the feature that allows you to look up a word is located too closely to the submitting your word so you frequently hit it by accident. They did a great job with the multiple game option which allows you to have many games saved so you can play multiple levels or have a game saved for all your family members.
I've loved the iPhone version of the game and played it since it came out. However, this iPad version puts it to shame!
The new look is MUCH better, and unlike half the games out there, it works no matter how I turn my iPad. Best of all, when I share my iPad with my family, we can each have our own game running on a separate board. So far, I prefer Infinite mode so I can plan my words very carefully, but there's even a game mode for my friend's four year old who is just learning to spell. The extra game modes cost an extra buck, but this game is already a fraction of the price of Scrabble, looks just as good, and I can play it by myself without waiting on friends to eventually take their turn.
I'm betting they'll raise the price once word gets out about this one, so I'd recommend getting it sooner rather than later.
I have come to enjoy this game as a relaxing mental challenge. I really like the fact that it has no time limit. It really, really needs an undo button. I understand why the creators don't put one in to avoid the advantage it could create, but hitting that scramble button with a 4,000 point word on the screen is very frustrating--and certainly not relaxing--and it's happened more than once to me!
Still, this is a very fun and challenging strategic word game. Thanks to the developers. I look forward to updates!
