Ratings and Reviews
Too many problems
I mainly like the anagrams, but often the letters make many more words than there are spaces for. So if you come up with six 4-letter words and there are only spaces for four, the last 2 are not counted, so it feels like you're not getting acknowledged for the skills the puzzle is supposed to reward. More frustrating: when I try to watch the "watch to unlock" ads, the screen goes blank and no ad plays, so nothing is unlocked. I've completed the puzzles I had been able to unlock, can't unlock any more, so now this app is an inert waste of space. Too bad, it was fun for a while.
Flawed at best
I'll grant that the individual puzzles are fun, but the glitches and ads reduce the overall value of this app significantly. Some puzzles appeared twice under different headings, some changed identities after I closed the app and came back, one puzzle simply had too few letters to be solved, and a particular word search even refuses to remember that it's been solved: whenever I reopen the app, it says it's untouched, but I look and all the words are still circled. Very poorly executed, too buggy fir completion-oriented people like me, too slow with ads for casual players, not an app I would recommend.
Good basic idea, but POOR implementation -- as just ONE example (among many), when you choose to "watch ads to gain hints," the app JUST SITS THERE AND NOTHING HAPPENS -- pointless. Also, the crossword puzzles are ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. After I finish writing this review, I WILL delete this app -- and that's a shame, because I like these kinds of games.
Challenge friends and check leaderboards and achievements.
