Still fun

Yeah, the dictionary used for the game is a bit weird and it doesn't allow perfectly good words if they are even remotely close to being PG-13, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying the game.

I was very surprised to see the recent update because it had literally been years since the last one. I assumed the developers had moved on but glad to see I was wrong.


Great Game

I have been playing Whirly Word for a long time and I still enjoy it. Some of the words however don't always follow a consistent pattern. For instance sometimes it will allow slang and other Times it will not. Sometimes it will allow non-English words and sometimes it won't. Overall it's a great challenge and a lot of fun.


Great way to build vocabulary

I'm really glad to see an update.

Suggestion to developers:

When you move to next puzzle, you are shown the whole solution. There should be some way to clearly show which words were completed, perhaps different color. You show it now with bold font but it's difficult to see the difference.
