Tweaks and polish
I loved this game. And it told me to rate it a zillion out of 5. So I have done this. Because this game tickled me in my happy places and made me smile, laugh, and cry tears of joyful disbelief. This game made me want to name my firstborn after it's creator. This game made me consider seceding from the United States and renouncing my citizenship in order to swear allegiance to Words With Monsters. This game was even better than that time I fed a bottle cap full of Mountain Dew to a goat; which was followed by another rather jellymad goat ramming into the previously mentioned goat who was enjoying his gift of liquid citrus caffeination. I cried on my phone when I finished the game and then proceeded to lick my screen to retain further sustenance from the awesomeness that was Words with Monsters.
My life is Facebook officially changed.
Fun game, fake words notwithstanding
This is a fun Scrabble-esque game, in which you get to use your wordplay to defeat monsters. It's a lot more fun than Scrabble (or "Words With Friends") since you can fight fake bad guys instead of having to wait for real-life friends to pony up. My one complaint is that the monsters seem to play a lot of fake words ("subpena," for instance, is not the proper spelling!), and get away with murder, while you, the human, have to create only real words (and no proper nouns, etc.). Seems to me both humans and monsters ought to be playing by the same rules here, to make it more fair. Other than that, a great, addictive word game.
Good Game / Original Take On Classic Word Games
Even though the A.I. sometimes uses words from a foreign dictionary, it is not a difficult game; even with an average vocabulary like mine. It's definitely worth a try if you like Scrabble/Words With Friends and have at least a vague concept of the term "role-playing game."
this section is for the developers if they happen to read this:
I would be willing to pay for a sequel that had a little more content or possibly some greater replay value.
I'm sure there have been many suggestions for new features, but I like the idea of a "slotted gear" type of system which would allow players to choose which "letter gems" to affix to gear. It may even be a way for the guys in marketing to get some of that sweet InAppPurchase money.
Overall, I enjoyed it. I'll be looking forward to your next game.
