Great game but....
By Golf Di
This is a truly fun game and I just noticed the dictionary which adds to the fun. There have been a few words that I thought were names and I wished I had found the dictionary sooner. I love getting credit for bonus words which make me work harder to find the “right” that they want you to find. However, only rated it four stars because the ads are overly frequent and obnoxiously long! I would buy the game but it’s ridiculously expensive. I will just put up with them until I tire of the game. But I will admit there hasn’t been a game that captured my interest like this one for quite some time. It is very addictive but again $50 a year is ludicrous for a game. I can put up with the ads for that price.
Addendum: I’ve been playing this game since February now and got my husband on to it as well. He’s a bigger game but than I am. However, I’ve now had an ad lock up my game totally 2-3 times now which is very annoying and bothersome. I’ve been troubled the number of ads at times but aside from that they didn’t bother me. Until they lock up the game! This most recent one is the McLaren of Palm Beach ad. It’s a video that doesn’t play and I now can’t make it go away either!! So no more game! It’s infuriating to say the least. I’ve enjoyed the game but could make better use of my time if it’s going to keep locking up. What can I do?
As an older adult I often look for new word games to keep the brain going, and the ad for this one seemed to have a different twist. i downloaded it, and just as with many apps before, the ad for the game is misleading because it does not play as advertised. I decided to try it anyway. Initially the game was okay, but then the ads began. Do not get me wrong...I get the ads and why they are used. You need money and it keeps the game free. We all have heard this before. But for a game that only costs a buck to clear the ads, you certainly use a lot of ads to cover that dollar. As a rule I do not pay for games unless I find it to be a classic, well designed, true to the game app. Once it is full of prizes and gimmicks, I am rarely interested. This game lost me with its ads interrupting me every other level and the prizes that constantly showed up. The ads often would not go away; just lead to yet another screen to watch and try to close. Sometimes I could not close out. I had to respond to screen to make it clear. This is not going to happen. The app is not as it was advertised, it has way too many ads to cover its cost, and it has too many gimmicks, prizes, and fluff. I just want a simple, challenging word game that plays as advertised. I can take the ads as long as they are incorporated responsibly. This one did not....so it has been deleted.
Love and Hate
I went and looked up this game to read the reviews because I love this game, er I love the concept. I hate this specific game. I don’t think it was developed well at all. Some levels are fair, the words not included in the puzzle are put in the word bank for you which fills up and you can “empty” it to get more coins. It is still challenging but fair, most of the words are typical and it makes it addicting like why didn’t I see that!? If you are stuck on one word at least you can try to add words to the word bank. The other levels don’t recognize words to put in the word bank and have obscure words in the puzzle. Its like they didn’t do any quality review or maybe some of the puzzle designers aren’t native english speakers? Idk but its frustrating, who would spend money on this!? Its bad. But addicting.
Also, it takes forever to get more coins. The words in stars on the puzzle will only earn you 2 or 3 coins, no matter how strange and difficult the word is. The levels vary in difficulty but not the coins you earn after completion. It will only give you 3 coins, no matter the difficult or number of words. The wheel isn’t fair either. There has to be a similar game designed better than this.
Mostly fun, I guess

It’s fun and I figure it's better for my mind than other games. But they had an update recently where I get less free spins for bonuses. I don’t like updates that make it worse for the user. It’s just greed because now we have to pay money or watch an advertisement to get spins sooner. They also have these gold rush tournaments - sometimes it’s fun, but you get just as many gold leafs (points, per say) for guessing a 3 letter word than you do a 7 letter word, and higher levels have less 3-letter words so it’s harder to get leaves (points) if you’ve worked hard to get to higher levels. Also, I am thankful for the dictionary (after you’ve guessed a word), but some of these words I have literally never heard of. Some of these words make me think they’re working from some Old English dictionary. Not a glowing review, but I really have played 50 days in a row - I just don’t like the recent update (and I don’t like in-app purchases so 1/2 my hard work on this isn’t rewarded at all since my “piggy bank” has been full for a month).
I very much enjoy this game. I can play for a few minutes or a few hours. The tournaments are interesting and, as well as I feel like I do with the game, I don’t do as well on the tournaments. I honestly would like to know what a person is doing to get several thousand more points (more than I am) is doing to get them! Well, not just me, than everyone! There is no way to communicate with other players sooo.... I’m 65+ and have been developing dementia for the past 20 yrs. (undiagnosed) and I enjoy my vocabulary increasing by playing. If you are strangely wonderful as I am, give it a try!! Wha ha ha.
I thought of a problem I’ve had; sometimes I get a bonus of a word, however it shows as a free hint so I only get one letter instead of one word. The bonus’s repeat the same thing which is not usual. Those need to be checked.
Good, but some suggestions.

I just got this game yesterday, and I am already at level 5 in Russia! One thing I’m concerned about is the words. I’m in 4th grade, and this game is giving me words like "Item" and "Time". I want these words to be more difficult like "Miraculous" and "Gothic". The reason I thought about this is because most word apps like this with music and stuff for the ads say that it will sharpen your brain and stuff like that. And honestly, with the words being too easy, what’s the point of this game other than to get yourself to sleep by listening to the music! I also don’t know why this game is honest LMBO. It doesn’t say in the ads "this app will sharpen your brain if you play it!" I didn’t actually see any ads at all supporting this app, which is later going to reflect on the app and make it crappy and stupid. Like, maybe next year or so, we’re going to have better and non-pointless apps, which will break all of the word games!!!
Thanks for reading,
Fun Game - Ad Service is Invasive
By Trixie Dix
Fun game- some levels can be pretty challenging. i like the mini games. don't like that it can use contractions and some foreign words, but not proper nouns or most slang. Ad rate is what it is- but the most annoying thing is its intrusion- 50% of ads automatically redirects to its own ad space, then opens my app store too- pretty invasive. it cant buy the app unless you click of course, but the 30 second ad becomes 40 seconds by the time you click back and close all the windows. not real sure this is in tune with privacy laws, but i guess there’s probably a line about in the T&C’s. the other thing is ad removal at $4.99 a WEEK? don't know who’s counting, but that’s a lofty $20 x 12 annually. with volume of players, there’s no way they’re not raking in cash hand over fist. at that cost, i’ll suffer the ads, thanks- just stop the continuous redirects, please.

This game is the best!! This game hash great graphics, no glitches, never one lag, and great for kids!!!! :;;;..Activity’s:;:;:;:
There are activities as well. There is: Gold rush, treasure hunt, puzzle, and I think that’s it... it’s not like a game game it’s like you play your word puzzle, fine bonus words and get the big word first. There are prizes as well!!!!
For the first time you get the game you will start with the panda 🐼 avatar, and a random name. If you click on it I think the avatar or Something else I don’t know..... what you do then is, Just click the box with the Pen and you can do a dog, cat, or a panda. Then your gonna wanna do your name, you can type your own. Last pick your gender.
This game get very hard- well it will for younger kiddos right now I’m on Turky. But the good thing is if they don’t use hints, bullet words, and more there brain will grow. So this goes for thoughts parents out there who want there child’s brain to go, get the smarts in then your gonna make sure they don’t use it. I mean, like why do this game for the kids... maybe do a diff learning game.
Well the my review, I hope that was enough information!!! Goodbye hope you enjoy the game! ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
Fun, Easy to Learn, & Help is Abundant
I love word puzzles and probably have a dozen or so on my iPad. While shut in my house due to pandemic and then hospital due to serious injury, I do these puzzles during most of my days and occasionally a few of my nights. As I said in my title, this game is easier than some of the others. And when I get frustrated, I just put it down for a break, come back refreshed, and find what I couldn’t see before, wondering why I’d been so blind. It’s just that my older eyes were tired of fighting a couple of eye diseases, completely unrelated.
If you want to start easily, try this one. You can also challenge yourself by moving quickly through the early stages and not using hints or clues as you go while you go there and above. Hope you have a fun WordTrip!
This is a good game that actually requires some skill. I have played it for about two weeks now and although I mostly enjoy it, there are some criticisms. Some reviews mentioned spinning the wheel is rigged, and I totally agree. I have spun it about 600 times, never got the puzzle bomb thing. I don’t even know what it does. Also, when I watch the videos to get free coins, sometimes they want me to play a quick demo of a game, and then I can’t exit out of that, meaning I have to close and restart the game. And can we please have more than one track for music? And last of all, wisdom scores are useless. There’s not even a leaderboard for them.
But at the end of the day I really enjoy this game as it makes you think other than rely on luck like candy crush. Most of my criticisms are minor really. I would definitely give it a try!
