It’s okay for me
The game keeps me occupied when I need a distraction. It does however need a few ‘bugs’ worked out and changes that I would make were it my game to change.
It’s very annoying when you have tried a word several times already that don’t seem to be correct but when you decide once more because your brain dead and out of options...it’s the very word that works. That’s the ‘bug’ or glitch that I was referring to. As for the changes; either change the daily challenge where it states you can or will win a huge bonus. It’s small and limited. Why state a point system for the length of each word on the daily bonus? You don’t receive said points for those words, you only receive 10/20 points. It’s a disappointment and misleading. Why bother to strive for the best points when the lesser counts as the same?
Now, I understand that this game is for ages 4 and up so the review that I read complaining about it not being challenging enough, just find something else and move on. Not everyone is going to at the same levels. However, I played long enough that the game did ask if I was ready for more challenging puzzles. I’m an intelligent person who now has some issues with losing words as I am speaking. I can’t remember even what to say when trying to talk about the sofa so I’ll just explain what I’m talking about until my brain finds the word sofa again.( just an example) so this new chapter is great and hopefully helping me.
Word Connect to keep your brain Connected
I have been playing this game daily for over a year now. I first gave it 5 stars it was great in the beginning! Now the developers have changed it not in a good way.
A year ago you had things like a daily bonus that gave you say 80 to 999 points or hint coins. Today the daily challenge gives less than 200 coins. The cost for purchasing extra coins has become ridiculous. I stopped buying them long ago. Next, the on screen point scale for solving words and for daily challenges has never been what is shown. Now Irregardless of how large or difficult a word you guess, you will only receive 40 points The words have become so ridiculous and unheard of that even the apps internal dictionary can not find them. The word puzzle choices and daily selection simple started repeating over again from those a year ago in the beginning. For instance a word that is approved in the same puzzle last week is not not permitted on the same puzzle word selection this week.
I would pay for new levels, new selections or word upgrades but I refuse to pay for challenge coins, I would not pay a developer to stop placing ads on a product.
You guys had the best word game on the market. What happened?
Feeling frustrated😕 No more videos to earn coins?

You have Not responded to Me to help me rectify the problem? I am so frustrated. I love this game,but can no longer play? I even tried deleting it from my phone and hoping to download again and start over from level 1,but every time it puts me right back to level 1444 where I left off? The reason I’m frustrated is..because I purchased an Easter theme and apparently the purchase included taking away the ability to watch the video ads to earn coins? I had NO IDEA that was part of my purchase? Obviously I need to watch videos at this level to earn coins,so I can get hints to help me but I can’t? So the solution I had was to start from scratch at level 1,so I’d have the ads again,but everytime you take me back to level 1444 where I left off? Why can’t I start all over if I want to? I don’t understand your app? Please help me:( I’m so frustrated:( Most games “apps” give you the option to continue with the game you saved or start new but you don’t:(
I used to LOVE this game BUT....,
DO NOT BUY THIS GAME RIGHT NOW!!!
They decided recently to add commercials that pop up randomly in the MIDDLE OF YOUR GAME! They are LONG, and they PLAY OVER, AND OVER, AND OVER, and you cannot get back to the game to finish the puzzle you were on, NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO!! They will probably offer their loyal and devoted gamers a commercial-free “upgrade” for a SUBSTANTIAL FEE, but I’ve been playing for years without commercials with no “fee” and I LIKE IT THAT WAY. They already charge *outrageously high fees* to buy extra coins you can use to buy letters when you get stuck on words. If they didn’t charge so terribly much to buy the extra coins to get in-game hints, I might buy those more often. The cost of those extra coins tells me that what they will probably charge for their “commercial free upgrade” will be FAR MORE than I’m willing to pay, and I will delete Word Connect and go back to playing one of my many other word games (like Whirly Word).
TO THE DEVELOPERS: PLEASE DROP THIS RIDICULOUS PLAN TO ADD COMMERCIALS WITHIN THIS ENJOYABLE GAME!!!! You are about to RUIN a wonderful game/app that I both play by myself and share with friends!!
TO PEOPLE CONSIDERING WORD CONNECT: DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS GAME UNLESS THE DEVELOPERS DROP THEIR RIDICULOUS PLAN TO ADD COMMERCIALS AND MAKE YOU OAY TO REMOVE THEM!!!
Disappointed, not as advertised
If the game that downloaded for me is what someone is looking for, then it’s a nice job of it, thus my middle-mark rating. But I downloaded this game from seeing an ad in another game... I’m on level 30 and still haven’t seen anything at all like what interested me from the ad. I’ve looked all over, and I don’t even have that orange puzzle option icon on Home screen (the pic shown in the App Store here has it, but it’s not on my game). I even saw the same ad for itself while playing this game, so I tried clicking to install, thinking maybe I somehow got the wrong version... nope, it said I already had the game from the ad. I’ve also already checked for updates and there are none. I wanted to play the scrolling word hunt game from the ad. Instead, I only have another version of a game I already had. Maybe puzzle modes unlock at some higher level?? If so, it should be mentioned, as I’m not interested in playing on and on hoping that maybe the next level will finally get me into the game I thought I downloaded.
Again, nice execution for a simple Boggle-type word making game, if that is what you are after. I’m just still looking for the fun, but different, scrolling word search game I saw advertised.
So close but so frustrating
The sad part is that this has the potential to be a really good game. The basic idea is smart, and they have done a lot of good work coming up with different variations of play so that it stays interesting. But the game is borderline unplayable because of the ridiculous inconsistency in which words it will accept as legitimate. It’s bad enough that the game cannot decide from level to level whether plurals or past tense of words are acceptable. But what makes the game really unplayable is that so many legitimate words will not be accepted by one level, but then on the very next level those words are the ones that you are supposed to choose in order to advance. I don’t know if this is some sort of coding incompetence on the part of the game designers, or if it is supposed to be some clever aspect of gameplay, but regardless of what the explanation is, it stops me from playing this game every single day. I will play it for a while and then get to the point where I can no longer stand to have legitimate words rejected all the time. I’m sure the developers don’t read these reviews, but if you work for this company and you’re reading this, fix your damned game.
Misled & Disappointed
I have seen the ad for this game numerous times while playing other apps-it looked like a fun word search game, so I decided to download it from the ad. I was looking forward to a different type of word game, but I was disappointed-it’s not a word search at all. It’s just like the game Word Cookie (which I already have and enjoy). I played several levels to see if a word search-like level came up, but I didn’t see one. I suppose I should have previewed Word Connect in the App Store first. In fact, another app ad car up while I was playing this app that looked much like that of Word Connect. This time I DID look it up in the App Store first, but it was the same situation all over again! These app ads are very misleading not what their ads portray at all.
Is this misrepresentation a big deal in the grand scheme of things? No. However, why mislead your audience with one ad when an ad for the real app would’ve sufficed? There are so many app developers out there that copy/rip off other apps for themselves. The only reason I gave it a second star is because if you’re looking for a game such as Word Cookie, Word Connect is a fun alternative. Yet, if you’re looking for a word search like the ad implies, this isn’t it.
Relaxing and Entertaining
Love playing the word games; however, there is one thing in this app that is more than annoying. I understand your advertising of other games, but I hate it when there’s no X to get out of the screen and you’re stuck there forever! The only way to delete the ad is by having to turn the phone off and then back on...case in point is the Diamond slot ad. So disgusting to not be able to get out of that screen! I’m about ready to just delete your app altogether...so fix it, why don’t you?! I can’t be the only one this happens to.
Please get rid of the Coin Master ad...it is not only impossible to get off the screen but sits on there forever! The only way to remove it is by turning off the phone and then turning back on...but then it comes back in one or two puzzles later and the whole process starts over again! ANNOYING as all get out!!! Love the puzzles but I’m about to delete the app...just too frustrating and a waste of time. Don’t mind the ads that I can read and then x off the screen, but the CM one does not delete when I press the x! What is the problem???
Third review: totally frustrated with the spelling accuracy. Had five common words that were not allowed, when I finally stumbled on the word that worked, it wasn’t in their or any dictionary I could find. I guess you get what you pay for. Obviously, the developers don’t read or care about these reviews.
Update: spelling in this app is getting worse and worse. Simple words like bing are not recognized and about half the words that I have not heard if are not even in the app dictionary. Gotta wonder when a game spells a word that it cant even find in its own dictionary.
This app is very inconsistent in spelling accuracy, legitimate words and especially plurals. The letter patterns repeat frequently, but words that worked one time don’t work the next. I appreciate the dictionary feature, which allows me to learn new words, but often times the words required to solve a level are not even in the dictionary. The app shows an option to provide feedback, but doesn’t allow because no email address is supposedly available and there is no option to configure an email address. I thought the feedback option for missing words would be helpful, but from all appearances, you enter the words and they just disappear or are ignored
Good Idea, but needs work!

I enjoy this game, but I'm frustrated by the word list. They claim to allow you to select and play different versions. I selected American, but find many simple words that are not on the word list (you supposedly get points when you find extra words). An example of a word the game does not accept is odor. Another not considered a word is tire. Some of the acceptable words are proper names. Very little consistency. I sometimes need to find a word randomly or by using hints (which they make money on) and each of those words, when I look them up in "The Free Dictionary" app, is listed as British yet I'm supposed to be playing the American English version. Why offer those options if you aren't going to follow them? I wrote the creators 3 times, but have never been afforded the courtesy of a response. No improvement months later. Very disappointing. Because they obviously don’t know American English, they shouldn’t offer it as an option.
They claim to be working on it, but there’s been no improvement in 6 months! “Nous” and “anion” American words? How about zairian?! “Kerb”. A word in the American version. I KEEP WAITING FOR IT TO IMPROVE!
STILL WAITING. Just had WRYING on level 1485. It’s not in any of the 3 dictionaries I have!
