Ratings and Reviews
Not what I wanted
I wanted a game that would actually challenge my proofing skills. It increases in speed as you go along, and the words have obvious letters that don’t belong and are easy to spit. These don’t necessarily enhance your proofing skills. In fact, if you are proofing a paper, you shouldn’t speed through it. I understand that it’s a game, and the speed of which you respond makes it more of a challenge, but this is not what I was looking for when I downloaded the game. The Zen mode is a nice option, but it shouldn’t be endless. Give it a time limit, too, or set different levels in Normal mode, so that you can advance to a higher level if you wish to play at a faster pace.
The game really has potential, but falls a little flat. It gets boring and repetitive after 10 minutes or so, and that’s coming from a total grammar nazi. I love the idea the game takes of being a book editor, but this game just feels like it’s missing something. Wouldn’t spend money on it. I hope they make something more out of the premise in the future. Maybe a full, in depth game instead of an arcade style? Or at least make it more detailed and less repetitive somehow?
The design and music choices are nice, that’s about it.
You’re just clicking words that are painfully obviously spelled wrong, with z’s, q’s, x’s and so on in places that are very easy to spot. Plus, you only get one story for free and have to buy the rest of them, so I finished in about 2 minutes and then uninstalled.
Boring and not worth the time or money.
Developer Response ,
The typos that are generated during the game increase in complexity over time; the earlier pages of the game use very easy-to-spot typos, whereas the later pages use typos that can be more difficult to find at first glance.
Regarding the "one story for free": rather than use ads or in-app currency, we decided to offer the Crime genre for free and allow users to access the other genres with a one-time in-app purchase. We understand that this game isn't everyone's cup of tea, so we wanted to provide people with the opportunity to try it out first.
