★★★ 2 new GAME MODES for you to enjoy:
* New HALF MODE (free), half of the letters are frozen, can you guess the first few letters of each word?

* Increased pro level cap to level 40
* Bug fixes and enhancements
I'd begun to despair that there would never be another really new word game app, only endless reinterpretations of the same old games. Word Farrago was a pleasant surprise. I enjoy the variety of games and having varying levels of difficulty. Sometimes I feel like working harder than at other times so I hop around rather than doing a steady progression.
I do have one complaint, though it cost no one any stars. I was moving letters around in one of the games, trying to make a word on all three levels. I had my mind on one particular solution. But, suddenly, the game lit up and said "Well Done" because I'd apparently solved the puzzle without knowing it. And I never got to see HOW I'd solved the puzzle, what words I'd formed. I'd done it by accident. So it would be nice if there were a way to see the finished puzzle for a moment before it is covered up by signs of congratulations. It's always gratifying anyway to look over a puzzle you've solved. Perhaps you could make the congratulations sign translucent or position it differently so the completed puzzles were still visible. Or you could add an option to review completed puzzle.
Other than that, a great game, lots of options and lots of fun.
This game would be better if the finished words didn't immediately disappear. I'd like a bit of time to gloat, or just say "what, that's a word?" Also, it'd be nice if it explained the scoring.
Update: I've been playing this a lot and enjoying it. Its biggest flaw is that the scoring hardly relates at all to the skill of solving it. A challenging puzzle gets a lower score than a quick easy one that happens to have a z, v, k, etc. It also lacks the satisfaction of some games that keep your score and have levels, though maybe if you pay you get that. And to keep it clean it's eliminated a lot of ordinary double-meaning words -- but otoh it has the biggest store of abstruse words I've ever seen.
I like it, it's fun!
A very challenging and entertaining game. I have one request... Can you make available a bundle of 100 or 200 (or more) letter "changes" for a reduced price rather than making us buy them only in bundles of 20 for 99 cents? PLEASE? I will have to stop playing because the further you go, the harder the game gets and the more you need help -- and I can't afford 1 or 2 extra bucks every time I play an extended session of two or more hours. Or, if this is available already, how do I access the purchase???
