Why I cannot play
I play Ruzzle using the name Sheshie1 Several months ago most of the words I make fail to register. I can make some 30-40 words and only 4 or 5 register. This happens when I practice, as well. The only opponents with whom it doesn't happen is Nancy. I don't know why, but she is the only opponent I can play against. Can you fix this for me?
Great stress reliever 💃🏾😂
I’ve been playing this game for yeeeeaaars! I ❤️ this game! I read some of the negative posts & even I’m sorry that some are unhappy with Ruzzle especially thinking the app is designed in a way to cheat... I’ve made a few genuine Ruzzle friends, some were even relatives of each other! I have learned over the years how to earn the ink, so I haven’t spent money since I paid years ago to get rid of the ads & my first purchase of ink & I don’t even remember how much that was 🤷🏾♀️ the only thing I need help with just started recently: the free help I earn daily that I save to use during my team play, the videos are taking much longer to play. At first I thought it was my phone, but after I hit one of them 4 times in a row for the first time & realized it used up all my free ones & still had to use my ink for 100 & this has happened several times within the past 2 weeks. And a few times it’s happened with my ink too... 😕 So I’m like ok, time to notify my Ruzzle fam 😂😂 because I’ve never had a customer service issue with you guys, nor have my Ruzzle friends that I’ve referred to y’all when they’ve had questions or issues! Let me know if I need to email 📧 ☺️
This is the best game ever!!! I bake cakes and I have a lot to do on a daily basis and it is overwhelming. This is the best game to put all of your stress away and just play your phone. Let me also add I own the bakery and it is stressful because I am the only one working in there except for my cashier... so when I go home I am so worried about tomorrow’s order and I just have anxiety really bad and it helps!! I also have a new born and a 3 year old that I have to take care of!!! My newborn is always breastfeeding so it is painful and when I am in pain I usually get on the game and just relax. My husband is a lawyer and we have a 3 story house that is always spotless so I am always on my feet before I lay my head on my pillow and try to go to sleep... I have the house all cleaned but sometimes that gets stressful and you have to take a break!!! So I play this game for a lot of reasons and let’s just say I have been playing this game for 5 years and it is amazing!!!!! I would never stop playing this game!!!! Thanks you to the developers!!!🙂🙂🙂
This game is just outright fun...having the best score out of three rounds with higher point levels each round always gives you that chance of winning......which is incredibly addicting....it also keeps players of high skill levels humble for even a very skilled player can occasionally have a lower scoring round. Its a very playable game with 0 errors or lag time given the gaming device that I use. It’s challenging enough to keep players coming back for more yet simple enough that all age groups can play. The controls are easy to learn. With the sound on the noises release joy(endorphins) every time a player scores high. You do not get punished for using 1 word more than once (being punished for that would probably make a lot of users leave) but you do hear a short off-key sound that alerts you of the repeated word. Colors are great and vibrant so is the app picture. It’s an exciting enough game to put up with ads.
Team help recharging Team Help can only be used once then recharging we use to have at least 3 team help before recharging what happened??? Lost coins again with a game that ended in a draw. Says the coins will be returned BUT they weren’t. Love to see that fixed. Also Free Play does not always work. What about fixing some of the issues mentioned y me and others. I’m on a team where a player left the team & their 4000 points left too. I think points made while on a team should stay with the team no matter what. That’s why there is a need to update Ruzzle along with many other suggestions that you are receiving worthy of updating. Lost 100 coins 3 times once Free play didn’t work & twice froze in waiting mode. Also distribution of coins in both tournament & team play very unfair needs some updating so more rewarding to players. Exasperating. A little cheap with amount of coins given when Tournament is over. But overall enjoy playing all aspects of the game. Should have vacation hold so games are not lost because lack of playing time.

Not as enjoyable as before
I came to Ruzzle on the recommendation of a reviewer for Word Crack (Mix 2) after that game drastically changed (for the worse). Once I got used to the differences, I found it to be a good substitute and a satisfactory way to scratch my word puzzle itch. But after the recent change, I find it just isn’t quite as good anymore. Previously, when you challenged a random opponent, you were able to play first and then wait for someone to join the game; now you have to wait for them to play first. And when you are playing a round, there is no longer a pause button, which is extremely inconvenient. Sometimes you need to step away for a moment—go to the bathroom, answer the phone, etc.—and being able to suspend the gameplay until you could return was nice. And somehow, I just don’t seem to do as well in terms of both the number of words I find and the total score I achieve as I used to, and I’m not sure why that is. I have severely curtailed my playing of this game, and I may end up nixing it right alongside Word Crack. (Why can’t anyone stick with a nice, simple, straight-forward word puzzle game?)
New Tournament Structure Unbalanced
Paid for the app years ago... Great game. I typically have played several times a day. The new tournament structure is simply unbalanced. It needs to be less chips to play a round and give out less at the top (I am sure other tweaks would work as well). The game has effectively been made to where the folks spending money will always have a tremendous advantage over ones unwilling to take part in micro transactions. While this is standard nowadays, this is just a little too greedy in this instance. The game is in a spot where it is not enticing enough to spend money and the reward is too low to warrant watching Ads. I know that game developers need revenue, but you have to offer better value to the customer in this instance. And giving the folks forking out cash this heavy of an advantage just kind of ruins the previous skill or time needed to get the high scores in the previous version of the tournaments. I have tried to embrace the new structure, but after two tournaments, it just isn’t fun any longer (Tournament-wise). One-on-one matches are still great though!
Newest update to free game after privacy agreement is awful and the game is no longer fun. My new phone freezes in the game repeatedly. Because the ads are too numerous and you are forced to hit them because they cover the play button, the game is no longer fun. There are double ads and for no reason you are taken to the web or to the App Store due to an ad or seemingly nothing. Have played a lot but will be stopping when my patience with all of this is done. I hope the developer will stop this because the only reason to play a game is for fun. The barrage of constant ads whenever you do anything is not fun. And I’m sure I am not the only one feeling this way. Your profits will ultimately suffer because people may not come back after they leave. Favorite game but what is with the long time with the logo that started tonight? Then the game is sped up and uncomfortable to play. What time was updated? It's not working. I can see the logo just fine on the Ruzzle screen. Also, I was knocked out of the game due to a call. It said to tap to return to the game. When I did, it said that the game was over due to cheating. What? So at 11 words the game ended. This has happened before after a call. I don't even know how to cheat with game, nor do I need or want to. This needs to be corrected.
Please stop score manipulation
I love ruzzle and have been playing for years. Lately, however, I've been frustrated with Ruzzle for a quite obvious score rigging. Team play is really great and I have a lot of fun, but can't help but feel "played". You play 3 rounds against another player. Results are immediate, clearly pitting you against someone who already played but still used to the same boards. When Ruzzle thinks you shouldn't be quite so comfortable if your winning you find yourself losing that game majorly. I always watch the replay so I can see how others find words. Soooo many times when watching the replay I can see the other person finding words and then suddenly the whole board will light up (like they suddenly found a huge word) and your opponent's score will double. This happens waaay too often to be true. Losing doesn't bother me at all, in fact I enjoy learning from other players. But it's hard to enjoy the game when you feel like your (more appropriately you OPPONENT'S) score is rigged. I'll keep checking back to see if this gets fixed.
Too Many Bugs & Glitches & Ways to get Ripped Off
The more recent updates to this game have ruined it. There are bugs and glitches constantly that make the user lose coins, coins that you must watch ads to earn and sometimes can earn a few by winning events/tournaments. Sometimes you watch the ads and you never get the coins. Sometimes you play Solo Events and are unable to claim your avatar at the end, and sometimes the game says the event ended (when it just started) and clears your progress so those coins you used to play each round were wasted. They make it difficult to earn coins, so when you spend them on games and/or boosters and your progresses is cleared because of a glitch/bug, it’s like you paid for something you never got. How fair is that? Imagine going to a store, giving them your money, and walking out empty handed. That’s what’s happening way too often to this once enjoyable game. And support seems to only acknowledge that you made a complaint and they ask for a screen shot. How a screen shot tells them that my progress was cleared is beyond me. They would need a screen shot of where I was at before it was cleared as well, and how would I have that?? They don’t reimburse lost coins and it takes an excessively long time until glitches/bugs are fixed. Used to be my favorite game. Hoping they change things so it can be my favorite again.
Not a quality or fun game anymore.....
This is my second review. First one is listed last. I enjoyed playing this game but the crap you have to put up with is NOT WORTH IT. While playing, the letters hesitate as you play so your score suffers, plus...I've been playing a long time and I have stats built up in the game and in the tournament. Then suddenly I was locked out of the tournament..could not play it anymore. Then I sent two messages to Ruzzel for help and no help. So For some reason I had to re-enter my email to sign in and the response was INVALID EMAIL. NO record of my email either that I've used for all of my games. Then said I had to establish new account ..so I tried but they changed my user name and password to one I didn't create. When I finally logged into this new account there was no evidence of me, or any past record of my longggg time playing stats. No decent customer service...if they had a good customer service to fix the first problem I would have given 5 stars. Obviously customers are NOT important to the, they have my money so to hell with me. .... This is my First Review. The new version is slow..touch is delayed...you touch a letter and in a second or so it registers. You can get any speed or accuracy with this fault. No fun anymore !! I have deleted it. Let us ALL know on FB when you have fixed the problems and it works and is fun to play again.
Great game, god awful app
Ruzzle is a great game. The only way it could be better is if a better company took it from Mag. The app is absolutely terrible. The game freezes and the app force quits; when swiping up it, it causes the phone to freeze for as long as 20 seconds (even after all other apps closed, clearing RAM and a hard phone reset); if you exit the app mid-game, the app resets when you go back, and all game progress is lost (this is new with the past update). The app clogs the CPUs performance so bad that even other apps run slow after swiping up from the bottom and switching (new bug as of the most recent update). Team play is absolutely terrible. If you bet max coins (100) and win, you get your original coins back but only 5 or 10 extra. If you lose, you lose 100 coins. Every opponents' accuracy and creativity is 95%; only the speed varies, and that is inaccurate. Total coins per opponent is out of whac too; I've lost to opponents with total coin payout of <200, but have handily won against opponents with a payout of 225, and all other stars were similar. If the app wants you to lose, you will lose regardless of how well you play. It seems as though the adds take a higher priority than actually fixing these bugs. It's been like this for years. Shame on you, Mag!
It was ... Addictive and Fun
Started playing on a vacation with family and has turned into my favorite time waster :-) The above was my review YEARS ago. I’ve been a daily player for years. Single player still is good but Mag you destroyed team play. So disappointed ... in team play I was a consistent leader on my team. We’re a high Silver, low Gold group. For the last three weeks The only games offered to me in team play are way beyond my level, even when we drop back to Silver. For the last 3 to 4 weeks I’ve been beat down and watched my chips fall by the way side. My skill hasn’t diminished ... and the level we’re in hasn’t changed ... but it sure seems like the ranking system has. The single player matches seemed unfettered, but team play now just seems to be a money grab ... it’s no longer “fun” .. which is why I played it. Now the only way for me to win is to use power ups (which I never use to need) which is just a constant drain on my chips and gold. I’m not the only one here, my other team members have noticed and commented on it. I understand the need for a company to make money ... but such an obvious “change” in the game is disheartening, and frustrating. I get it, everything changes, including the apps I’ve got installed and the ones that I use.
Developers encourage cheating
This is a good game if you don’t care about winning the game, or losing your coins to people who use cheat apps. You can take screenshots of the rounds where a player is cheating and email them to the developers, but it won’t do you a bit of good. They will send you a standard reply (“Thank you for sending these. The player will be investigated and sanctions will be placed if necessary.”) and then do nothing. They don’t have a cheat block on their game and they refuse to put one on. I have sent in the same cheaters year after year and nothing happens. Sometimes they’ll use their sanctions, which is returning that player to a Level 1 (they try and pretend that all the level 1’s are because of a bug) status and taking away their progress, but the cheaters don’t care! The last time I sent in screenshots (which they encourage you to do...Lol!) they told me that a player has to be turned in by multiple other players before they would do anything. Needless to say, it’s not worth your time or effort. I’ve been sending emails to them for almost 10 years, but I’m done asking them to help. They obviously don’t care about fair gameplay and have absolutely no integrity. It’s a corrupt company with corrupt people running it.
Advertisement incentive based game
Been playing for a long time. It’s a nice interface with a few bugs they seem to sort out. Most bugs seem to revolve around advertisements that freeze the game. My big complaint as of late (and the reason for the low rating) is regarding tournament play. You are given random boards that vary quite a bit. If you choose to watch a couple adverts you can add 30 seconds and an extra triple word. This is important if you want to compete in the tournament. Here’s the rub - Recently they reduced the tournament boards to accept boards that contain extremely low word counts. Meaning that on one board I played had a total possible 16 words. In tournament play this board is useless. If you want to compete you need higher scoring boards. I’m assuming that marketing decided that if they expand this range you will be forced to play more games and watch more advertisements. I was willing to give up this time with a higher minimum, but if they want my eyes on their advertisers that badly they’ll need to compensate the viewer IMO. Thanks for the decade of word fun! Hopefully they can find a better formula.
