Customer Reviews

Word Detective

I am very disappointed with this game. It seems very juvenile, has no challenges, More info. Is needed re: how this game should be played. Ex: are we supposed to finish out one category before starting another? How many games are in each category? Is there a running score? What is the goal of this game (outside of finishing tach game/puzzle? Is the goal to get more or less points and how much is each game worth? Is there a running total? I have to say again that I'm very disappointed and sorry I purchased this app. I hope you will update and give more info. In the future.

Best word search

I've tried all the other ones and none compare. This one looks great and works great. Some of the topics are harder than others, so it's nice to try them out and pick the ones that equal the challenge you are looking for. My favorite ... by far!

Best one yet

Ok, I wasn't sure when I read the description, but after a few minutes I was sold. I love the themes, and some of the connections are creative. I have not had a single problem with freezing so far. Well worth the $.
