What's New in Version 1.1
New 7x7 levels! If you thought 6x6 boards were hard, just wait until you try the 10 new 7x7 levels... These large word squares are extremely complex to create and near-impossible to solve. Good luck :)
iCloud Sync now available! Play on one device and continue on another. When enabled, all level progress will be synced between iOS devices signed in with the same Apple ID.
New Hint & Clue packages! Now you can stock up on hints or clues - or both! Rather than having an option to purchase only 10 at a time, now there are more options - including an Unlimited Hints & Clues Pass.
Game Center achievements! New achievements are available to challenge you as you progress through the game.
Fixed a couple semi-obscure words in earlier levels. Also some other minor fixes and performance enhancements.
Challenging & Innovative
Although I have a history of accumulating games in a dusty folder, playing them for approximately one week, and then leaving them to rot; I have to say, this game does a spectacular job of holding my attention. It's definitely challenging, and not for the weak of heart - or weak of mind, to be perfectly frank. It's premise has been done before, but I think this app does it in a way that is refreshing.
Before I conclude this review, I'd like to say that I have a wide vocabulary and an adept mind, but on level 20-something... Well, I'm certainly not putting this game down anytime soon.
Challenging, a little clunky
Solid, challenging game, forces you to think of lots of possible word combinations. Hints help you through when you can't visualize any word words or you've given up. It's a good brain stretcher, with three minor issues: 1-letter switching should be possible between any two spots not just in one row or column. 2-if you solve one of the words correctly, show it solved, maybe even auto-fill the duplicate word to eliminate busywork. 3-after using a hint, show that letter as solved. Fix those minor issues and you're 5 stars.
Good game but I HATE the burst of white light after a puzzle is solved. The abrupt changes from "regular" light levels to "burn your eyes blind" prevent any relaxing gameplay at night (kicking back, lights turned low, etc).
EDIT: Reducing rating from 4 stars to 1. I could tolerate the light burst, but the slow and finicky way to move tiles became intolerable. The point of the game (IMHO) is to solve the word puzzles so why make moving the tiles so effing laborious? Also, the "solved" tiles turn the same color as the "fixed" tiles, which means you get frustrated trying to swap tiles until you remember, oh yea, that one's fixed. Not worth the hassle -- deleted this game.
