Not set up well-Not as Fun
I love Anagram type word games like this usually but this particular game is not set up well at all(the layout) & it's just not very fun for some reason(compared to similar games). I downloaded this app yesterday & 6 other word games & I've played them all a few hours last night & again today & I've decided to delete this one today as it's the worst one & not very exciting or fun for some reason-which other word game lovers I'm sure will see for themselves after trying it out.
So, I wanted to leave honest feedback before I delete it-the layout is horrible, the letters are very small & I don't like how you can't even see all of the answers without needing to scroll & I personally had trouble trying to play multiplayer-it never loaded after clicking the option so I could only play by myself but even so-THERE ARE A TON OF BETTER WORD GAMES JUST LIE THIS ONE with a MUCH BETTER & FRIENDLY LAYOUT THAT MAKES THOSE GAMES FUN & EXCITING. Also I noticed some issues with words not being accepted that I use ALL THE TIME IN OTHER WORD GAMES-So this is TRULY ONLY A 1 star game As it is now-MAYBE 1 1/2 STARS AS IT'S BETTER THAN NOTHING TO PASS TIME SITTING ALONE MAYBE WHEN WAITING FOR AN APPT. or something like that & it doesn't take up much space as far as MB-but for me it's just not worth keeping when there are so many BETTER VERSIONS of this type of game-HOPE THIS HELPs.
Love word games and Text Twirl is a favorite. BUT - Every time I win a game and am asked if I want to continue I answer " Yes" and it starts loading a new game. Loading time is endless and it actually takes longer to load than to delete the game completely and go back to the App Store and get it all over again! This definitely needs to be fixed. Now I just say no to the request and start a new game.
Bugs and inconsistencies
Text Twist is a super way to unwind and challenge the mind. I enjoy playing this game but, upon winning the first game it does not allow further play. The timer counts on into the second game but, the screen remains unresponsive. There seem to be a high number of inconsistencies with allowing plural tenses of words to be used in play. Please bring back the option of an untimed game and eliminate the added pressure of "Beat the Clock".
