My Sight of the Game
I’m gonna try to make this short and simple. The thought of a game like this is nice and cool however the clues are very unhelpful. I’m a teenager playing this and the ad said “ Play this for fifteen minutes every day and you’ll get better memory” or something also those line but I have been playing this for quite a while and it’s not helpful at all. The easy levels aren’t really easy. The game says for 4+ but not even a six year old would be able to play this because it’s extremely hard even for me. If you weren’t taught certain words growing up then this game is just too hard to play. Honestly please make easier levels. Also maybe the player isn’t ready for adventure mode and wants to do the easy pack but isn’t allowed to use money on games like me. What then? What if I’m not ready for adventure mode and want to go easy on myself but can’t? Will I just be restricted from the easy levels forever? Maybe premium could be used for different things other then levels, because that’s like playing Candy Crush but you have to pay to go past level 50 or so. Maybe it could be for more free hints. But having for the levels really restricts the player. That’s it I just wanted to say that now bye.
The game is fun, and the challenges vary from almost ridiculously easy to frustratingly hard. The “space cadet” background format is a bit silly for someone like me who is in my seventh decade, but it is tolerable. Some of the clues are a bit inaccurate, if not misleading, and there is no immediate way to report or challenge them. I taught English for over forty years, so I have a bit of insight regarding definitions. All that said, the ads are the most annoying aspect. As a disclaimer, I fully realize that many other games have the same ads with the exact same problem. If a game cannot “hook” you in ten to fifteen seconds, the remaining fifteen aren’t going to either. Most annoying are the ones that you “X” out of only to have a second screen with a wait to hit the second “X.” What are these ad designers thinking? Has it occurred to them that these persistent and duplex ads actually may have the psychologically reverse effect of “I will never download that annoying thing.” Thus, hook me in fifteen seconds or less, or forget it.
By the way, my wife and I play the same games on our IPads as a competition which makes for a lot of fun except that she wins too often.
Good Game, But A Few Things Need To Be Fixed!
The game itself is great. I love how many worlds there are, and how many puzzles are within each world. I hope you guys continue to keep adding more in the future. Maybe a futuristic world. The reason I only game it 3 stars, is because for one, you guys completely broke rotation for iPad. It doesn’t work at all. Speaking of rotation, for the love of all things CodyCross, PLEASE ADD IPAD LANDSCAPE MODE SUPPORT!!! The second reason I gave this game 3 stars is because of how the advertisements in work in this game. I realize ads help keep this game free, but I don’t appreciate when an advertisement automatically opens my App Store to go straight to the game or app that’s being advertised without my consent. I don’t even have to tap anything on the screen for it to do this. You guys need to fix this if this is a problem on your end. No advertisement should be allowed to do this. Ever. Also, I’m not sure if it’s just because of the Halloween theme, but the tones for when typing seem to be lagging and way out of pitch. And when typing on the keyboard it also lags as well. I hope you guys address these issues. Thanks.
Good Improvement System
A while back I had tried playing this game, but some of the questions were really easy and the game was rather boring due to the lack of challenge. However I saw an ad for Cody Cross while I was playing another mobile game, so I figured I might as well try it out again. Turns out the developers for this app added in a review after each level. After each level it asks if a certain question out of that level is fun or boring and they use this customer feedback to exterminate low-scoring questions, and it seems that it has made the game far more challenging and interesting! I have enjoyed this game so much that I haven’t put my phone down since I started playing it, four months ago! Karen if you’re reading this please let me have weekend visits with our kids y’all mean the world to me I promise I’ll get off my phone and spend time with them. But due to the addictiveness of this game I had to give it four stars and not five. Yes this game is fun, but the cost of losing your wife and kids is not worth it.
A little too hard
By reven the sith master
Okay I’m not complaining about the game it’s wonderfully made!! I love the way when you start out it shows Cody with his little tablet and when I’m spelling the words it makes me feel like I’m actually on this new planet with my tablet discovering stuff! But being the age I am still young and in the tween years almost teen at 11 almost twelve some of the words are a little hard it would be better if you made the words like common words like flower or computer common words that every body knows about I am not aloud on you tube or google and what I’m aloud to watch is very restricted so when it asks me stuff like what was the dance that this person did I’m like I don’t even know who that is I’m stuck on level three!! I tried some of the other ones but it’s a little hard please can you make the words a little easier at least make a thing we’re you can change the difficulty because I know some people like a challenge I don’t know what all the people are complaining about they do forget you have a family to provide for thank you 😊
A Cross between Word find and 😁crossword game..
I love this game! It has helped me find words I had problems remembering! I love the chance to think up the correct words and if I can’t, then getting other words causes letters to fly into words waiting for me to get them! You can win coins that allow a “li’l guy” astronaut to award you letters at the cost of one coin per letter, so there is a lot of help here! The graphics as you travel from section to section are amazing...you can choose to play free or buy a subscription....there is plenty of play for Free. I have been playing for nearly 2 months...just about every day...Support is great and (ads are few and x makes them go away, fast!) I wish all games did this, I would be playing them, too...but there is a lot of fun here...A family could help, shouting out the words...how fast can your family get one level/5 games? “TRY IT...YOU’LIKE IT”💜💜💜😀😀😀
Fun, but needs improvement
I have really enjoyed this game so far, but the main reason I write this is so I can give some criticism.
First, I feel the difficulty goes all over the place. Going from six- to nine-letter clues is way harder than it sounds. If the first part of the game had only six or seven letters, and the eight or nine letter puzzles were saved for later, the game would be much more approachable. Also, some of the clues are just far too much out there. I feel like literally nobody would know some of these obscure clues without Googling the answer.
The most frustrating thing though is the fact that the clues don’t tell you how many words are in each answer. Normal crossword puzzles tell you if the answer has more than one word, so why not this game? There are so many clues where I’ve been stumped since the puzzles make it look like it’s always one word, but many times it’s two or even three. If I had known that, I could have gotten the answer easily.
If the devs see this, please fix these issues. It would make the game better for anyone.
Would be nice...
This is a very enjoyable game with some tough questions. BUT it would be really nice if the game gave something back, like a few coins when you finish a puzzle. This game doesn’t hesitate to take our money, which is a ridiculous price, so why can’t they give something back? Ya know, for winning?? I’d up my stars if they did this until then, bye bye
UPDATE. what genius decided on giving clues instead of coin for watching the videos? Seriously. I always watch the ads and get my 3 coins every game. Not anymore. I hope I’m not the only one who will complain about this. I don’t mind watching the ads, but would definitely prefer coinage over the hints.
Thank you for listening. And will wait for a response.
Another UPDATE: ok. So getting the clues instead of tokens is a good idea. So why are we still getting tokens. Obviously they are not good for anything, unless you have something else up your sleeve. So. Please. No more tokens. Clues are just fine and dandy, thank you very much

It’s an okay game, fun to just tap on every once in a while and do some thinking. HOWEVER, you only get coins for hints once a day, and to get more you have to watch ads. I have multiple problems with the ads on this game. A recent ad that was put on the app doesn’t let you skip, and it won’t let me ex out of it either, I’ve watched it 3 times total, and there’s no way for me to get out of it so I have to completely close the app and reload it to get to the next level. Differently, but still aggravating, you Have to watch ads to get any more coins, and you’re also forced to watch ads after you finish a puzzle / before you start a new one. These ads aren’t skip able after 5 minutes, (I can’t ex out of them for some reason and I have the iPhone 11), and they don’t give you any reward, even though if I wanted to watch an ad 5 seconds earlier I could have gotten coins in return. The ad system is nuts.
Please let me pay ONCE to get rid of ads.
This game is not difficult. It’s just the right level for an educated adult without being frustrating. The sound effects are pleasant, too.
Occasionally, words are included that are super uncommon. And based on some of the definition wordings and word choices, I have a feeling the developer is British or Australian. Could be wrong.
I detest the ads, though. I appreciate that I can skip them after a few seconds; this is the ONLY game that has ever allowed that. But why not provide an option to get rid of them completely? I’d happily pay a ONE-TIME fee to get rid of them. I’m not subscribing to anything and certainly not paying - what is it - $70 a year? just to play a word game. Even a new XBox game doesn’t require you to pay a fee year after year to use it, so I’m not sure why anyone would do that for an app like this. I only play adventure mode and don’t care to “subscribe” and get “packs.”
