Give me a break!
The game is highly enjoyable with lots of replay value.
There are issues though that are really so unnecessary that it only makes the devs look extremely greedy and not bothered that these issues take away from a great game.
The biggest issue I see is the top of the screen ads. I don't mind ads in a game. If I want to support a developer I gladly pay to remove them.
However, when they are purposely placed so that they take up part of the game screen, and one of the game tips is to remove the ads to get more playing room, I think twice about supporting such a company. It really shows that there are zero ethics.
In the first game mode, you need to make 5 words. No where is there a timer showing you that you only have a certain amount of time for each word. You soon get a warning sound and quickly you're out of time. It would be nice to know how much time you have to make a word.
It does come to mind that perhaps there is a timer under the banner ad so purposely placed in the playing field.
Lastly I think $2.99 is a little high for getting rid of ads. Usually it's around a buck. If it's higher than that it will usually include power ups or game tokens/coins.
BEST WORD GAME ON MARKET
I've played them all... And most are good some are crappy and the rest... Well just are the rest. This game gives you hours (immediately after downloading I played for 4 hours straight, have never done that with any other game) Of jumping out of your seat fun!
Very simplistic and easy UI, mixed with awesome menu music that doesn't get boring or annoying. Music has a Nintendo wii feel.
All in all I'd give this game a 5/5 * rating.
It is fun, one can practice all the Scrabble words one ever learnt, one can make it quick or longer or more difficult and one does not need to spend oodles of money buying in-apps to be able to improve on the levels, so far at least.
