"Great word game for those who love word games like I do. I especially like the thoughtfulness to include specific sound effects for specific types of words. Easy to learn and hard to stop playing." - Jeff M.

"I was completely addicted to WordUp on my PC -- great job with the iPhone version!! If you love word games, get this one -- you will not be able to stop playing it. Oh, and the graphics are great!!!" - Martpie

"Could be addicting but the crashes make it frustrating...that and my wife has 10000 points more than me!" - FBU

( Skunk Studios: sorry about the crashes in the old version! We've upgraded it majorly - the new version should crash much less! )

Great game...except...

I play this game a lot under the strategy method. The problem is that the game ends prematurely. I am working on a high scoring word with plenty points left to make , and it just ends! Just now had 2000 points left to make and had an eight letter word ready to go. Knowing it could end I played only. Three letter word and it ended as though I made my points. Frustrating!

I agree

It's a good game, but I have now played level 29 five times in a row. Each time I win it loads the same letters over again. Given the multiple complaints, it's time for the developers to either revert to the earlier version or refund money to those who choose. The current version is unacceptable.


I emailed Corp about the crashes they told me I was the first I crashed with over 3 million PTA very disappointed. Why can't they get this right!!!!!
