Tweaks and polish
Fun game, fake words notwithstanding
This is a fun Scrabble-esque game, in which you get to use your wordplay to defeat monsters. It's a lot more fun than Scrabble (or "Words With Friends") since you can fight fake bad guys instead of having to wait for real-life friends to pony up. My one complaint is that the monsters seem to play a lot of fake words ("subpena," for instance, is not the proper spelling!), and get away with murder, while you, the human, have to create only real words (and no proper nouns, etc.). Seems to me both humans and monsters ought to be playing by the same rules here, to make it more fair. Other than that, a great, addictive word game.
Others can and have described this game better than I can. I will add that it's easy to play, a great game to occupy a few spare moments, and can be finished in a couple of sittings.
I will give the creator the benefit of the doubt and say your opponents use a lot of obscure words that I don't know. So one suggestion for future versions is an option to see words already played (and their scores) so you can look them up later. An even better idea would be to add a button that would define a word that's on the board.
Another would be to tweak the difficulty level, since once you've bought or won enough extras, there's not much chance of losing a round.
Overall, it's fun while it lasts.
Charming and quick scrabble type game
This word game is pretty simple but hits all the right notes. The art and theme is really charming and fun and even small touches like the cute pre-match dialog with different monsters adds to my enjoyment of the game. Individual matches in your quest only take a few minutes to play through. The variety of enhancements you buy and equip with your victory earnings keep the game fresh. Combine a quality game with the fact that it has no IAP, makes Words With Monsters a big winner!
