  • Amazing app but..

    By JennyyyyyB.
    This game is a amazing game but there are WAY to many adds and most lead to the App Store. There should be a button so you can report a ad for spam. And when someone puts curse words there should be a sensor that when you put a bad word it makes it hashtags. And there should be a button where if you spelled your word wrong you can click it then type what you meant to say, then it can detect it to see if it was right. And the lives.. i understand that you need people to buy your stuff but instead of the daily lives being only 3 it should be 6-10 and the timing, when i was playing against some people they would purposely stop the timer as quick as possible which is 5 seconds, the maximum timing should be higher that that like 10 seconds or 12 seconds, ever though I talked about how the game needed to be fixed, it’s a awesome game.
  • Great game with some flaws

    By ghostslovefriends
    Overall, I absolutely LOVE this game. Some good things: quick rounds make it easy to play without a huge commitment, fun categories, and super fun to play with friends. Some problems: some letters are chosen way more often than others and there is one formatting issue. In the game, the letter that you must use to fill out the categories is chosen through spinning a wheel. The problem with this is, the wheel starts in the same place every time you spin it, and so it usually ends in the same place. For example, usually when I spin the wheel I get the letter M. I would like to play with some other letters once in a while! If letters were picked in a different way, this wouldn’t be a problem. One last problem I’ve run into only comes up when I search for friends. The background of the search box is white, but so is the font color! When I’m typing my friends usernames, I’m typing in white font on a white background! I can’t see what I’m typing, which can lead to me needing to search for the same person multiple times. I don’t know if I’m the only one running into this problem. In the end, this is a great game that I have recommended to my family and friends, and would recommend to anyone who enjoys word games.
  • Fun but needs an update

    By Loola103
    So I’ve been playing for a while and it’s a great game. I’m always on it and it’s fun to see what I can come up with under pressure. I think it’s a good format for the game and a good concept. But here’s some suggestions. LESS ADS. There are way too many ads in this game, after every two games it forces me to watch and ad. MORE LIVES . I think you should be able too have 5 lives at once instead of three since rounds are only 3 minutes each. I think you should be able to watch an ad for a life. UPDATE WORDS. In one of my recent games the letter was A and the category was countries. I put America, It said it was incorrect. This has also happened many other times with different letters and categories, and this game needs and update for words. CHILD FRIENDLY MODE. Should be an option so bad words will be censored if the opponent does put them in. DIFFERENT MODES. Instead of only classic and zen there should be more such as one where you have all the categories and you fill out as many as you can. Aside from all this the player base is also super annoying because half of my lives go to waste. We should be refunded lives if this happens! I would rate this 3.5 if I could
  • DOWNLOAD THIS GAME NOW!! (Addicted to this game)

    By HorseCrazyGirlAlex
    This game is AWSOME! All you have to do is start a match with a random opponent, or your friend, and you can play for hours! In this game, you get 5 things to answer. You spin a wheel with letters on it and whatever letter it lands on, you have to answer each question with that letter in like, 59 seconds. The fun thing in this game, is that your Opponent can be answering the questions and if he doesn’t know the answer, or he is done, he can press stop. You don’t know if your opponent presses stop, so when it’s your turn, whatever time it was when your opponent pressed stop, that’s how much time you’re going to have to answer the questions. After your done answering the questions you see how many each person got and whoever got the most wins that round. Then you play more rounds to see the ULTIMATE winner, then you can rematch them if you want to. I would give this game five stars, if they didn’t have the lives because if you lose, you get a heart taken away, and when there all gone, you have to wait like 30 mins to get another one. So download this game, to have the time of your life!
  • Love this developer and game

    By Ldsginger
    This app is my favorite game to play currently. If you’re familiar with the word game Scattergories, then this is basically that in digital form. It runs smoothly, has little ads, and it appears as though you’re never put against robots, unlike most multiplayer games of this kind that I’ve experienced. It is very intellectually stimulating as well, and I like the challenge it presents, without it being hard enough to give up. I was also reading through the reviews, and noticed consistently that the developers would respond to every comment. This in itself isn’t unique, but the answers were specialized for every comment. Everyone got an answer to their specific issue or suggestion. And not just, “we’re working on it!” The developer explained why the issue was happening or how to solve it. And most of the issues that were brought up, I haven’t noticed. Which means that Fanatee actually solved the issue. Something that most don’t. So thank you Fanatee team for being so good at customer support! You are one of the best developers out there in my opinion.
  • You need knowledge!!! 🤓📖

    By by fluffy stuffins
    When I saw this game I thought I’d be really good at it, but some categories are like broadway shows, country capitals, and stuff that needs specific knowledge. I think this game is really hard, plus sometimes you get stuck with the letter ‘Z’!!! I need my mom’s help on 93% of the questions. Then again, you could get the letter A, or a good category like mammals, fruits/veggies/legumes, famous places, girls names, common dog names, or, in my opinion the easiest, colors. This game is fun but I see why it’s rated 12+. The good thing is there is minimal ads 99.9% of the game is the game, the 0.1% is ads. This game really sharpens your mind! ————-To the game creators: I wish you would make the categories a little easier, for those who are not experts in geography or don’t pay attention to The olympics, broadways, or Oscar events. Also, the game makes you wait sooooooo long to play while “your opponent plays their turn.” I made a pb and j sandwich while I was waiting and ate it. I came back and I was STILL waiting for 5 minutes after I came back. A GAME OF STOP TAKES 5 MINUTES AT MOST AND I WAITED FOR 15 MINUTES!!!
  • So much potential...

    By BIueCat
    I downloaded this game as soon as I saw an ad for it. That’s pretty rare for me. Unfortunately it has a ton of ads which most of the time you cannot close without quitting the app and starting again. (I know how to close ads and these are not able to be closed.) I went to purchase a version with no ads but it’s $5 which doesn’t sound like a lot but I don’t want to shell out that much money on an app I might get tired of after a day or two. To be honest if it was $2.99 to remove ads I probably would have done it. Maybe I’m too cheap. Anyway just because of the ad issues I can’t see myself playing it anymore. I also don’t like that you can’t see how much time you have when you’re answering questions once someone else has taken their turn. Or if you can see it, I didn’t notice. Lastly I don’t like that people answer two questions and stop the timer after 10 seconds hoping that it takes me that long to get through one question so they can beat me easily. If I knew I only had 10 seconds I would play differently. That’s just my two cents after playing for less than an hour.
  • Fun game....but

    By T2bks
    I really enjoy this game, and will continue to play it, despite the many times a valid word is submitted, only to be discounted. I’m not talking about when words are misspelled or are flat out incorrect. I’m talking about words that you see in later games that are counted as correct in the same category. It’s pretty frustrating. After playing this for a few weeks, I also notice that sometimes a word will be submitted for a particular category and then later, the same word used for the same category and marked incorrect. Go figure! Also, since when is the Washington Monument NOT a tourist attraction? It happens often enough that I’m taking away stars from my earlier review. Update: now I’m really not happy - I kept getting ‘upload errors’ so I uninstalled/reinstalled it - I paid for no ads, but I can’t get it back because I don’t have facebook. There should be other options than to sign up with Fakebook~ all the other apps I have do. I don’t know maybe someone will come up with a similar game, because it is fun, but without all the errors, and inflexibility of creating an account
  • Fun but...........

    By 1098765678910
    This game is AWESOME and I will never ever stop playing it. There are just a few problems like the coins they are practically worthless and they should be used to buy lives like 20 coins=2 lives so far I have 200 coins. Another thing is that every time I get on "STOP" an ad comes up there are TO MANY ADS and when I finish my game the same STUPID AD I hope it's not to much trouble but can you pleasseeee fix the ad problem and on the comparing part when you edit there should be an inappropriate button if you can please fix that to and also I think you should be able to put a picture on your profile pic but people can do it on FACEBOOK oh no way I don't care if you don't fix the last two suggestions but pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeFIX THISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
  • Love it but unfair at times

    By Djfiekdicidksoaoaooaoaappaa
    I’m so addicted to this game. I play it constantly. It’s fun, quick rounds so you can do it any time without being glued to your phone to long, and you can earn hearts to keep playing without spending money. The problem I have is the STOP feature can be used pretty manipulatively. I’ve played against some people who couldn’t think of more than one or two categories and stoped it pretty early on. I get that’s kinda the point, but if they stop after only 10-15 seconds because it’s a hard letter or they can’t think of any it doesn’t give you much of an opportunity. If they stop feature was only available after a basic 30 seconds (or however long the developers feel enough to give the opposing player a fighting chance) or only after you answered a certain number of categories it might stop people from using it as a quit and take you down with me button.
