What's New in Version 1.2.1
Fixed bug with background music
Really great, but it needs enhancements
I love word games and this is one of my favorites in a long time! BUT... it needs a few things to really make it great.
First, as others have stated, the rules are unclear. How are turns earned and what earns more? What causes tiles to change in the bonus round? Why do longer words sometimes add a DW or TW and sometime just replace an existing one? A page should be added that clearly details all of the rules.
Second, you either need to add an "undo" option or a "submit" button to prevent against accidentally submitting a two-letter word. This happened to me several times as I was trying to "un-drag" a word and totally ruined what would have been a good score.
Third, I would like to be able to see what the score would be for a word I'm dragging out before I commit to it. (Almost all scrabble-like games have this functionality).
And lastly, please improve the dictionary- there are words I've played in Scrabble and WWF that are not considered words in this game (and I am not talking about obscure words!).
Thank you for creating this game - I do really enjoy it and will continue to play despite these shortcomings!
Not bad, could improve
I like the controls. I do not understand the goal of the game that much. I think we need a better tutorial, or at least have it somewhere in the setting explaining the colors and how to reuse letters and such more in-depth. I don't normally like these type of things, but this one has captured my attention. It's good that there are themes to unlock, however there needs to be something a bit more to keep it from being repetitive and getting old.
Great idea but doesn't work that well
I really wanted to like this game, I love word games but this one is more of a chore, not very fun. I spend most of the time trying to get it to recognize what word I'm swiping, it almost always adds letters I wasn't trying to use and if your not going to allow three letter words then give me a board where I can make some words that are more than three letters! I'm deleting this game
