Loads of Fun

I'm a newbie. I'm still playing at the "easy" level. What I really like so far is that the instructions are incredibly easy to follow. I feel with some games you need a crystal ball to figure our how to play. Admittedly, I only recently received my iPhone and never played games before this. The game is fun, but you can't put your brain in park. Great combination of fun and skill. And that red herring is soooo cute!
I want to add to my review. It's been less than a week since I started my affair with the Red Herring and I can't stay away. Yesterday, I spent an hour doing puzzles, before I realized how much time had passed. THIS APP IS FANTABULOUS!

I got this game a few months back upon the long recommendations of its affiliate game, 7 Little Words. I do not regret getting it. I play it every day & enjoy the puzzles. It took me a little while to master, but I am a accomplished player now. I look forward to playing it throughout this year & next year and hope they add more freebie packs in the near future. I may not be allowed to buy the puzzle packs it offers, but I do enjoy the daily puzzles & replaying some puzzles I have played before. Red Herring Rocks!!

This game is very under rated!

If this game had maybe more daily puzzles and more free packs and maybe some timers or other game related things it would be perfect. Also if the herring could talk that would be really cool. I am writing this review because this game does not get the credit it deserves, but with that there are many things the creators can do to make it a lot better.
