Call Noah the great - This game.
This game is the best game I’ve ever played in my whole entire life out of all my games I have in my game section this is my most popular I have gone to very high levels and I found this is for nothing just for grown-ups you are interested in it it’s the most funnest game and it has all sorts of educational listen to it it had is like Chi sky hey say all sorts of different words in it I would take it to like from the age of four to the age of 60 no offense though this has been the best game you should try it you have rewards you have targets you have bull’s-eyes you get hits and the best thing is that it’s cheap for getting no ads absolutely no ads and with no ads means that we do more of it and you can get hints and sometimes if you don’t have enough coins then you can tap the thing and then tap the X and then when you get out then there will be less thing that says some thing it’s at the top in this little box that has like offers and whatever you press the top one and then I’ll do a Quick commercial and then you get like 25 coins whatever and I would like to say this is the best the best game ever in the whole entire world well besides other games but I admit this is the best game ever you should try it and I admit that thank you for listening to this very long in a minute chi Noah the great
Meaux25 - Beware Ad Themes and Glitches
I echo the cautions on the ads. Many are inappropriate for all audiences. Some adds are obviously for calling a sex line (scrolls at the bottom). Some ads are for games showing death of a character. They are cartoons, but still an issue for youth and possibly those with Mental Heath issues for whom such themes may be a trigger. Plus, I really don’t like to see that. Others ads are for games about relationship infidelity. Again, personally I don’t want to see them. If these are triggers for you, beware. If you suffer from pornography or gambling addiction, the ads may also be a problem. I also recommend children and youth avoid the game for those reasons.
The game itself is enjoyable. It keeps the brain engaged enough but not so much that you can’t pay peripheral attention to other things when you need to keep half an eye on things. The team and individual tournaments are fun.
Developers- about 1-2 months ago, the ads popping up after completing the daily puzzle come up so quickly the game does not credit you with the stars you earned. Please fix that. Personally, I enjoy the butterfly day because even though I may not get all of the varieties, I at least get some butterfly to add to my garden. Can we increase the butterfly game from 1 to 2 days? I don’t like the portrait game that lasts 2 days because you get a lot of repeats with nothing to show for it. Very disappointing. The butterflies are much more satisfying.
Jammityjammer - Love the game itself but there are many issues
I love this game and play it often. However, there are many things that could be improved. For instance, the dictionary of words this app uses is strangely inconsistent. The game allows you play certain slang/abbreviations such as ‘exec’ and ‘repo’ but there is no reliability about these types of words. The word ‘cred’ is not valid, for example. I don’t understand how they decide which informal/improper words are allowed and which aren’t. Also, the word ‘verde’ is playable but ‘bleu’ is not. ‘Yin’ is valid but ‘yang’ is not.
My biggest problem with this app is the fact that I have paid actual money so that I don’t get ads, but despite that fact, I still get banner ads on the bottom of the screen constantly. There is always an ad there and it often features flashing/distracting imagery or contains inappropriate themes. When I paid to get rid of ads, I paid to get rid of all ads. There was never any clear statement that paying to remove ads would only work for pop ups. This is extremely misleading and unfair. It is unacceptable to provide the option of paying legitimate currency to go ad-free and then not fulfilling that promise. Ad-free means ad-free. I have reached out to Wordscapes customer service several times about this matter and have been ignored every time. At this point, I want a refund if they’re going to keep putting advertisements in when I’ve specifically paid money to avoid that.
Quivksilver7 - Ten outta ten
This game I’ve had for several years now, it’s honestly one of the only games that doesn’t eventually become boring and even though it’s got a basic concept, there’s so many little things that make it great. It has to be said, that if you play for a few months and are still hooked, it’s definitely worth getting the no ads thing since it’s a cheap one time purchase, but even if you don’t, they don’t come on often enough to be too annoying, so I applaud the developers for that. Second, the game IS primarily single player, but when you get to a certain point you can join teams, and compete against other teams in weekly tournaments. You also get a team chat which is pretty nice, and some really high playing teams have like real life email chains or WhatsApp chats and you can make real friends that way. Also there are events throughout the week that let you earn cool portraits for your avatar, or butterflies that don’t really have a use but are pretty and you can name them stupid things once you upgrade them to the max level. Overall, the game is entertaining, has a broad spectrum of things to do, and it isn’t a money trap, all you need is skill and logic, and if you begin with none, I guarantee you Wordscapes will increase your proportions of both.
Mfl03 - Really Enjoy!!
So far I really enjoy Wordscapes. I’m on level 1356. So far, I’m familiar with the vast majority of the words. I especially like that the words are not rare and unusual. If they were, I would not play. The backgrounds are pretty. However, there are several things that clutter the screen. As someone else mentioned, a " coins full " message keeps showing, with an option to buy the coins you have already earned. I won’t do that. It’s annoying. If the words ever get so bizarre that I can’t solve them, I will quit. There are other pictures on the screen and icons you can earn, but they are confusing and useless to me, so I ignore them. Also, it's too easy for my finger to accidentally tap on the “help” clues that cost far too many coins. I don’t use them intentionally, and it’s very annoying when I accidentally tap on one and lose a hundred or more coins. It’s easy to look up help on the internet if you are stuck For me, though, if I ever find that I have to look up words, I will quit. I don’t mind using a clue once in a while, but the clues cost way too many coins, compared with other games I’ve played. All in all though, the game works well on my iPad 4th generation now that I updated to the newest iOS version.
KoalaTwo - Great test for spelling nuts, best word fun app out there
I don’t write many reviews but I just had to let other spelling geeks out there know about this game. I don’t know why anyone would give this less than five stars unless they found it to hard. Me? I search for games that will test me, push me, make me really think. If you love scrabble, words with friends or any of those games out there that require you to have a good knowledge of spelling, this game is for you. It doesn’t matter what age you are you will enjoy it. One of the things I liked best is that you don’t have to spend weeks getting through the easy levels to get to the good stuff. You can join a team (to compete in tournaments where all team members scores are combined, or where individual play is rewarded) you can chat with your team members from all over the world, and there are many games within games as well as progressively harder levels to challenge your brain. I happen to be an English Teacher for advanced students in Elementary school and many of my kids play this game. We can even keep track of each other. I know, geeky right? Geeks rule the world my friend! Not high school or early school maybe but the REAL world. You need this game, download it today!
Pumkin-- - You should definitely Download!
This isn’t one of those games were that ads are nothing like the game. 😯What you see is what you get. It’s a word puzzle game where you make as many words as possible to win. Sometimes you might be stumped and can’t find a word. There is a skip option and you can shuffle 🔀 your letters to look at them from a new perspective. Hints do cost in game money 💵 so try to save up. You can make money 💴 by solving a word that earns you money, doing a daily puzzle or finding a word that’s not in the puzzle. Power ups, daily puzzles, a leaderboard! It’s so much fun! Now I’m going to talk about everyone’s lease favorite thing. Ads 😑yes there are ads after a puzzle and before and a little one at the bottom of the screen that doesn’t get in the way. But you can purchase something for 6.99💸to get rid of them. Or you can put your phone on ✈️ mode while you play. You can’t see texts or anything while using this so turn it off as needed. Overall this is a great puzzle game for passing time and I think there is a way to play with people? 👥 I don’t know for sure I haven’t unlocked🔒 it. But this game is great and of you like word puzzles you should totally download. ⬇️⬇️
Unsafe Means of Transfer - Old Version Better/Coin Issue
I’ve played this game for a few years now and noticed a disappointing new feature with the coins. In order to use them now you must purchase them. This was not a requirement with the old version and makes me consider deleting the game daily as the use of the coins used to provide you with helpful features like; revealing one letter of your choice for a difficult word, etc. It’s a bit illogical to continue to show us coins that we’ve earned through finding additional letters or for reaching a certain level, yet we have no access to them unless we purchase them??? It feels like a design flaw as you play and really makes me wish I hadn’t updated to this newest version. Other than that I would have given 5 stars but it’s such a nuisance I have to grade much lower despite truly enjoying playing the game. Suggestion: Get rid of the option to pay for coins per player's choice if you decide to keep the paid “earned coins” version of this game as most people are never going to bother purchasing anyway it’s like having a commercial running in the upper right corner of your television screen while you’re watching your favorite TV show. It cheapens the look and feel of the game. It feels like the game creators are begging for money as opposed to a real game which would never have a running advert in the corner.
Otherwise the game is perfect.
Tresvick - Review going down
I love this game. It’s the only game I play. I love the tournaments BUT the game always freezes. It is especially frustrating when you are in first place in a tournament. I almost didn’t play third weekend because I was worried the game would freeze and it did not disappoint. It froze after I had maintained first place for about an hour. Apparently the makers of this game can create it but can’t keep it functioning so it can be played for any amount of time. Despite my many complaints and complaints from other players this remains a problem. My initial review was five stars. This is an ongoing problem so I have finally lowered my review to three stars. Update: This game doesn’t seem to freeze as much, but now my complaint is that you can enter a word correctly and it will be rejected. This happens quite a bit and so you waste time looking for a word that isn’t there, only to enter the rejected word again and have it be the correct word. I entered one seven letter word ten times before it was accepted as the right words. This is still the best word game out there, at least for me.
Winddreamer22 - Long time player disappointed
Been playing casually for years. Only recently begun to take an interest in the tourney feature. The team feature is fun playing with other players. And hearing their gripes about the game. About how some players seem to be under testing with new game features. The latest was Star Rush. Which I don’t really see the point of with getting bonus points if you complete a level within 3 mins. I think most players can complete a level within that period. So no real change from the regular play. Unless you take your time and those players are at a disadvantage. Or something comes up and you forget to close out of your screen. So lose bonus points accrued unless you pay coins to not lose them. Days when there is not a tourney you have theme feature to collect portraits. For instance was the ‘Trick or Treat’ theme. Where you collect portraits with a Halloween theme. And what I heard from other players, it’s nearly impossible to obtain all the portrait from the set. The only feature I’m able to complete a collection are the butterflies but most regular players can complete collections. And really the only I was able to complete. I’ve yet to complete any portrait sets. I know players with millions in brilliance and they haven’t competed a set. So they doesn’t bode well for players like me. I still play but mostly for the tourneys and the team I joined.
DGBAuthor - Great way to chill if you can handle it’s foibles
I find this an almost addicting daily indulgence. I’ve been playing this for well over a year and when dealing with their standard puzzles, the game can be quite entertaining. Where it falls down is with its vocabulary and it’s other options, like tournaments and daily puzzles. By far the most frustrating is the Daily Puzzle, in which earn points for guessing the correct word, guess them correctly and you’ll earn up to 3 points for one of the four challenges which in turn rewards you with stars for your account. However, there is neither rhyme nor reason to their method. Say you need a 3-letter word with “O” in the middle. With your letter selections it could be NOT, TON, LOT, HOT or TOY. Guess them in the wrong order and your chance of earning all 3 stars that round may be lost. I don’t know why they don’t put the words in alphabetical order.
Next is vocabulary. I can’t say how many times I’ve tried a word and it’s not accepted (example: EWER or TOM.) Then there are the words like AAH and AHA or non-words like LITE.
Finally there’s the tournaments (where one minute you’re rated #5, you’ll finish a game and drop to 20. Oh, and you better have a cell or network connection, otherwise you’ll play through a round of 16 games and get credit for none of them.
Courtney4367732 - Can’t Sync Between Devices
The concept of the game is easy enough... and if you have a decent vocabulary, the game itself is too easy. I’m nearly to level 300 and have barely had to pause to think about it. Definitely not challenging so far. My biggest issue is I can’t sync between my phone and iPad. I contacted customer support and was initially pleased by the quick response. Unfortunately, they keep forwarding my responses to another person, so I’ve spoken to 4 different people even though person 2 explained they’d just do a manual reset or something that never happened. Person 4 goes “Are you trying to sync them to the same FB account?”
What??? Why would I be confused about it not going to the correct level if it wasn’t even the same account I was syncing them to?? I finally said never mind because no one from their support team has helped me over the past week and apparently they can’t bother to even read what my complaint was in the first place. Yes, they answer the same day, but every day it’s a new person and you’ll be explaining your problem over and over! And it’s emails! They can’t communicate? So all in all, pretty easy game and decent time killer... just can’t get the game to sync between my phone and iPad. 2 stars because the last two emails I got from them are utterly ridiculous. I paid to remove ads and regret the fact their company got my few dollars.
Sharibaby714 - Beware of missing features!
The developers of his app give some features (adventure game within the game for example) to some users, but not all. They also give "random mid-week tournaments" to some, not all; however, in my team of fifty players, we found that the same people got the tournament week after week, so it's not incredibly random. If your mates get all the extra tourneys, they get to advance through the game at a much faster rate with 'crowns' that can only be obtained in the tourney play - and THAT'S why it's not fair to others of us. Bottom line, if you don't mind others being given blatant unfair advantages by the game, you'll have fun. And contacting them to ask why results in a 'sorry, not sorry' reply. One star given for my inferior game experience caused entirely by the app developers themselves. Others bestowed with the bonus features will probably rate higher.
*My reply to Developer: then your TEST shouldn't allow people to unfairly advance faster in the game. If you win your individual tourney, you are eligible for max 50 crowns/wk. Extra TEST tourney, gives access to 25 extra/wk. UNFAIR GAME ADVANCEMENT!!!! Then take the test crowns away. Test all you want and hallelujah for you, but you should not let people advance in your game and others do not have equal access. I don't expect to get 50 crowns per week unless I EARN them, but I don't expect others to have access to 100 game advancing crowns per month, when I do not!
Tinarobin - Updated review. I no longer even like this game.
3/3/22 - I used to love this game, but things have changed to the point where I no longer want to play. As you can see from my previous review, the ads were not frequent, so I was ok with them because the devs deserve to be paid for their time. Since then, the ads have become more frequent over time until they’re now after every puzzle and it’s usually 2 ads. Plus, they have a button where you can watch more ads for extra rewards, so the frequent ads are ridiculous to have to put up with. The mini contests are no longer any fun at all because of the ads. My 5 star review is changing to a 2 because it’s so irritating to play now. The only reason I’m giving them a 2 is because of the quality of the graphics. If it wasn’t for that, I wouldn’t give them any stars.
Most game apps like this either bore me with using the same words repeatedly or else they suffocate me with billions of ads every few seconds. This game does neither. The words are varied, even though I disagree with some they buzz on, but it’s probably the fact that I am 60 and use older words than the devs or from wherever they obtain their list. While there are ads, they are not super frequent and they are not horrible. I have not had any issues with this game at all.
MEEMOSS77 - some suggestions for the developers
I really enjoy playing this game and I have a team which I am the leader of. I have a few suggestions that I have to help out the leaders of the teams.
First it would be great to be able to go into my team member list and be able to see which members are currently online and which ones are idle. You could put beside their name where it would say online or idle with how long, for example it would say idle 3 minutes or idle 1 week. This way we as leaders will know who is an active player and who isn’t.
Another suggestion is to give us the ability to promote players of our choosing to become coleaders where they can have the ability to kick/ban people from the team or if the team is set to invite only they can accept a player to join the team when the leader is absent.
It would also be nice to see like a separate team message board where the leaders can post team rules and expectations or other notes to the team so the players will know what to expect by reading them and that the leader doesn’t have to keep typing it over and over again.
I really hope you guys put these ideas into the game to help out the teams and the leaders.
Orange 59 - Weekend Tournament Concerns
I’m a team leader on a team that has played several months in tournaments. I have played this word game for 18 months. Of late in the Tournament there are teams that are getting hard to believe high scores. This leaves me to believe we may have some bits in the system that are making this unfair for us human players. These teams need to be automatically disqualified from playing in these tournaments. Our team is feeling like why should we play if there is so much rampant cheating by other teams.
I also think it would be wise to add incentives and rewarding those who have reached high levels in this game. Perhaps giving 100 coins for each 16 games you complete. They definitely become more challenging as you go up higher in levels. The game is fun snd I have made many new friends in my team. I’m always amazed at the number of legitimate words that are not accepted in puzzles or as bonus words. I’m also a little baffled at the editing of communications between team members. There are certain words that are starred out and those words are not offensive or slang words.
Thank you for all you do and I hope all of these issues can be resolved or at least addressed so that all can enjoy this game!!
Pikachublue21 - Very fun, but one thing I want to give advice about...
So far, this was the best word game I ever played. You can make words to complete puzzles, get coins, or just fiddle around with the letters until you make some words. You can also use the video on the Earn Free Coins section to get 25 coins per vid if u get stuck, but there's one thing I want to advice about.....whatever you do, DO NOT use the surveys to get free coins. When I checked it out I found out that whoever runs this survey thing is really just trying to get a hold of your personal information. Even the 15 question survey is trying to get personal info from people. That's why I did not even complete the 15 question survey and I'm glad I did not summit it. If you want to get free coins, I would recommend you just do the videos for coins and not mess with the offers or the surveys. I don't know what company runs this game but they might have someone like hackers running this survey thing so don't use the survey thing whatever you do or they may get your personal information. Otherwise, this is a really great game.
Calwyn408 - Fun and intriguing…if you have some spare dollars
I really like this game, and even though I’ve only had it for a few days I can’t stop playing it. As someone with ADHD this is a really good focus her, and gets my brain working. There have been some words that I didn’t know where words, and there’s also a lot of things that should be counted as words like the names of countries, so that is a bit annoying. Plus you earn coins by completing the daily puzzles and crossword’s, but you can’t use those coins to buy things in the store that will help you out. You can use them to buy a helper thing when you are playing the game, but if you save up a lot of them you just have to do that rather than using them to buy spelling bees or some thing.I also don’t like that every time you complete a level, 25 coins go into a piggy bank that you then have to spend $1.99 on to get the coins when you reach the 1440 Mark. I feel like this game won’t be very fun if you aren’t willing to spend a few dollars, which is why I gave it four stars instead of five. But overall it’s a fun game that doesn’t get old and also challenges you to think.
Foggyhat - It’s okay...
It is an okay app so far. Starts off WAY to easy, but I guess that’s probably so that anyone can play, even young kids. It has far too many 3 letter words for my liking. It probably gets harder eventually, but till that point, it is a bit boring for me.
I have two other qualms. The first is that there are legal words that the game doesn’t accept. If you do come up with a word that was not chosen for the crossword, it counts as a “bonus word” (which adds to your total to be able to later use for hints, which is a good idea). However, there are valid words that the game doesn’t accept. I can’t remember all of them right now, but some are “alee” and “luged”. They accepted “luge” just fine, so I have no idea why the past tense in “luged” would be an issue.
The other main issue that annoys me is the frequency of the ads. I’ve played other games that have ads before, and I understand that’s how free games supplement their income in order to give us the content in the game. However, the frequency of the ads is the issue in this game. By far the most frequent ads I’ve ever seen. Sometimes have to deal with an ad every two minutes or less, if I finish the crossword quickly, which is ridiculous. At least you can X out of the ads fairly quickly. Still, having ads that often is annoying.
Passnthru - Fun game
Great game challenging, fun and addictive. I would give it more stars but feel it’s not evenly played. My wife has been playing for months and her hints are 50 coins, I’ve been playing a couple months and enjoy the game but the hints on mine are 100 coins,the target hints 200 and rocket blast 300 totally bogus pricing. Before you say she’s at higher score(she is) I have a daughter, granddaughter and soninlaw that all signed up after I did and 2 of them at my recommendation and wait for it...... their hints are 50,100,150 coins. I’m not the only one this has happened to in the support section there are other complaints of the same thing. I sent an email to them with questions about this and I will say they answered rather quickly but with a crazy response of “we’re trying different pricing to see which we decide on.” What I got out of the answer was we think we can gouge some folks on the pricing so when they buy coins they get less benefit for the money they pay. I started with 2 stars but as I wrote this I down graded it go 1. Get your act together and I’ll revisit this review!!!!! Have talked to them thru emails 3 different times and each time it’s the same, ”we’re trying different pricing to see where it levels out, hmmm I wonder if they’ll refund the folks that bought hints and removed ads at the higher prices when they level out, hmmm NOT!!!!!
Paultrgeist - Misleading
So, in this post-fact world the advert says you’ll learn to read faster and improve your vocabulary. I haven’t seen any evidence that spelling words from a collection of letters helps one read faster. Logic tells me it doesn’t. Perhaps they could cite some studies. My bigger issue is that it’ll improve my vocabulary. That’s hogwash. Central to ALL vocabulary instruction, starting in kindergarten, is definitions. This game does nothing to promote improvement in my usage of the words contained in it. Moreover, the game is all about building words from letters THAT YOU ALREADY KNOW. How does recalling words I’ve seen and used many times before, then provide no definition or context in which said word is used, help my vocabulary skills? I’ve waisted too much time playing this thing, hoping that I’d eventually get to the “lexicon” level which would grant me the amazing fluency and word knowledge advertised. But alas, the game doesn’t appear to have that...it’s basically Boggle that can be played at a banana slug pace. This would be a four star review if they’d at least provide definitions (maybe they do with the paid upgrades?) and actually allow me to practice speed reading. Throw in the parts of speech and you’d have five star reviews all day long.
ChristianL1979 - The Rampant Cheating in Tournament Needs to End
Wordscapes is a fun well-designed game aside from one thing. The cheating in tournaments. I don’t care if you have an IQ of 180 the likelihood of finishing each level in 10 seconds flat and having 20x the amount of stars than 2nd place makes you m
Not even want to try. There is such an easy solution to this that in over 2 years no one has implemented and it’s frankly embarrassing that for as good as the game is and the clever the design that no one has come up with yet continuing to update it.
When a tournament begins in the current form of the game your tourney begins on the level you left off on. The problem with this? Every level is on a website that gives you all the answers. Why don’t you design several thousand “tournament only” levels and never reuse them again. If they cheaters can’t just sit on the answer site mindlessly completing 10 levels in the same time it take people who do it right what is the point. Yes I’m so sure these people aren’t cheating, they play 24/7 for 48 hours and never lose any sharpness whatsover. If you want to hold a fair and funny tournament the cheaters need to be chopped off at the knees and have all their acquisitions taken away. They didn’t earn them.
Poppyseedmuffins - Great word game!
Edit: Unfortunately I need to rescind my comments about not having PG-13 words. Starting in the 200’s levels, there are words I hope most children under ten years old would not know. Not curse words, but nouns and verbs that are more adult in content. Disappointing as it could be a great game for elementary and middle school kids to help with spelling and vocabulary.
Great word game. Gets progressively harder over time but not each more than the last, so there are little respites of easier ones between the hard ones. Uses everyday as well as more obscure words. I like that you can see definitions and uses for words by tapping on them. I also like that you get bonus points for words that you make that aren’t on that particular puzzle. I have more respect for this game compared to others because they don’t ever put PG-13 words in the puzzle, so it’s appropriate for kiddos or tweens too. The tournaments and challenges are fun to have if you’re into that, but also not too in your face if you’re not. The ads are the only bummer, but not unbearable. Overall really happy with this word game!
Ms_Marine09 - Kill Time, It’s fun minus a few things
It’s a great word game to play, between this and Ruzzle (my favorite), I think the game is pretty fun. I enjoy learning new words and expanding my vocabulary so this helps. The game allows you to guess words without a limit or consequence no matter how many incorrect tries. It also has a built in dictionary so you can look up the definitions of any of the words you find.
Cons: You don’t rack up many coins, so you have to be good at guessing or pay for more coins. The hints are so expensive for a game that doesn’t allow you to rake up many coins per round. To earn coins you have to play 16 round to get at most 75 coins. Each round you can earn coins by guessing words that aren’t in the puzzle using the letters given. You get one coin per word; ripoff. I guess it’s a money thing. The hints cost 100, 200, and 300 coins so be mindful of how often you ask for hints, unless you don’t mind buying coins.
Some words that are real words, aren’t recognized by the system. Some words you’ve probably never heard of, are definitely a part of the game. So with all that being said, I recommend the game, but it could be better.
Multiple Device Playing - Don’t play this game using multiple devices!
I’m just so fed up with the errors in this game! Why can’t they figure out how to keep the coins and helps consistent across devices like other games are able to do? It’s been so frustrating since I had to delete the game from my iPad and reinstall it. Support was actually very good initially in helping me get my stuff back, but when they tried to correct it for me, that’s when it went haywire on me. They gave me too much, so I was being nice and honest by asking them to correct it, but then they ended up deducting from the wrong device, leaving me with a measly 17 coins while the other device had over 2M coins! Does that even make sense?!? I’ve been asking them to fix it, even shutting off my phone every night, but now suddenly, they’ve gone all silent on me and not responded to a single one of my requests! The guy Kenny told me he had to hurry up and fix it for me since he could only do a minimum amount of adjustments, but is it my fault he messed it up so badly? It’s so frustrating, so I don’t even want to play anymore, except to help out my team because they’re a great group of people. I would highly recommend NOT PLAYING THIS GAME ON MULTIPLE DEVICES AND DEFINITELY DON’T DELETE IT WITHOUT TAKING A PIC OF WHAT YOU HAD. So frustrating!
Tayislit - It’s Okay…
So, let’s start with the good. Wordscapes is a fun way to challenge your brain and learn new words. Also, you can guess wrong and/or incorrect words all the time. But, for me, that’s where the positives end. I know lots of people say this, but I’m going to it again. The game uses words over and over and over again. I can’t tell you how many time I’ve gotten the word “emu” in this game. This doesn’t add to my vocabulary, if I have seen it over and over again. In the game, the “hints” are 100 coins, and bull’s-eyes are 200 COINS!? Like, for ONE letter it cost the same amount of TWO letters? You might as well save up for the “rocket” option at this point. My other complaint is the chat systems of the teams. I was once on a team and inappropriate things were said, and SEVERAL people reported the messages and had them removed, yet that person was never kicked or removed from the team? Like, they should be removed at the FIRST report, wether the team leader reported them or not.
TLTR: Great idea, but the repeated words, having to spend to many coins on hint, bull’s-eyes, rockets, and the chat systems, it just not okay. Overall, a game I would not recommend. 😐
JAM1966 - Almost perfect
Most recent update has screwed things up. Team chat keeps cutting off the last line of everyone’s messages. Also I was pushed out of my team twice (leader did not kick me out). I’m now listed 3 times in my teams player list. Something got pretty messed up in this most recent update. Previous review: This game is nearly perfect. I play this one every single day. The tournaments are fun. I’m on a team of great people I would have never “met” without this game. All the little extras that keep getting added keep things interesting. However, there is one VERY annoying thing that needs to be fixed. If it was I’d give this 5 stars. I don’t know if the developers read these or not, but PLEASE put a “Do you want to use the firework” pop up before using it! I cannot tell the number of times I have accidentally flicked my finger over the firework and have it get used. 99% of the time when I DON’T need it, like I am down to my last word and I’m about to spell it. Or at least put it as an option to do this, and if people don’t want it then they can turn it off. Thanks.
Lauraaapieee - Missed Credits on Daily Challenges
I haven’t seen any other reviews on this so I’m not sure if I’m one of a few that has this problem. I love this game but the problem is with the daily challenges. I’ve played this game for months (possibly a couple years) and always, always do the daily challenges. It’s a ritual I do while eating breakfast. For every so many days you complete, you can get coins and it goes up in increments so that you should (on the months that have 31 days) be able to get the big prize of 500 coins. The problem is there are usually about 2 or 3 days out of the month that it doesn’t give me credit for that therefore insuring I will not get the 500 coins. It always happens!!! It goes to the next screen after I complete the challenge and goes through the sounds and motions but my number/count doesn’t go up one. Super annoying and it’s almost like it does it on purpose so that no one can get the 500 coins so we will be forced to pay for hints since they cost an exorbitant amount to begin with and always run out of money. It’s been bothering me for months so just wanted to complain.
Staticandbanal - Elegant and fun but could stand to be more rewarding
Very lovely uncluttered layouts and short puzzle times make this a great app for de-stressing and passing time on short bus rides, standing in line, etc. My kids also love it and will beg to "help" me find words if they catch me playing it. A few critiques: you have to do seemingly endless easy puzzles before getting to any remotely challenging ones; I wish they increased the difficulty sooner, maybe based on your solve time. Also not sure what the "brilliance" is about, and there's nothing to use the coins for either. I finished with over 3700 coins, but when I press "shop" the only option is to buy even MORE coins using real money. It's also kind of annoying that it won't accept certain real words for no apparent reason (e.g. girt, purl, cote, hod, coir, trice, creel, cant... and the list goes on). Yet it DOES use a bunch of slang words like blog, pic, toon, etc. What dictionary are they using?! Overall an excellent app, I'll probably go back and redo the upper levels from time to time (fortunately it unsolves them again after you finish).
McHellarose - Tournaments are a joke
I love this game and play regularly and I had doubts when I read some reviews that said that the tournaments were mainly done by bots, but now I have clearly seen it first hand and those reviews are right!!! I decided to take about a 15-20 minute break from it to go to the store and relax my eyes. When I went back on to play, 2 people had passed me and one of them suddenly had over 2300 points. In the 15-20 minutes I was away from it, someone who wasn’t even in the top ten of players had passed us all with that many points. Now I play this game a lot and I would like to think I am pretty good, but this is complete crap and takes all of the competitive fun out of the game! I even paid to stop the ads and there is no way I could put up 2000 points in 15 minutes. I will not ever spend another dime on this game and feel this is cheating and just downright cheap to do to people that really want to compete and have fun. Not to mention that when you get to higher levels it becomes repetitive. I have done some of the same puzzles 4 times. Did they run out of words?!? Maybe the bots could come up with some to help the developers out! Complete joke competing in the tournaments... don’t even waste your time!
BrewRef - Simultaneously annoying and fun
Overall, well done, but the dictionary of words is stupidly frustrating, and it’s sluggish. The dictionary includes words like nan, which is not a word at all, despite the provided definition of naan, which is a word. Siesta is not English but it’s in there, while many other non-English commonly used words are not - be consistent, at least. Amnio is found in a puzzle but it won’t accept amnion. Amino is there but not ester (someone needs remedial chemistry). Bro, repo and other slang and abbreviations are also frequently used, which are not only annoying because they’re not proper English words, their use is just lazy puzzle building. Also, there’s also a weekly game within the game in which you accumulate credits toward portraits you can choose to use as avatars. The thing is that they keep using those credits for portraits you already have, rather than giving credit toward new ones that need new credits. Frustrating and annoying. Having paid for ad free has made the game more enjoyable but flawed dictionary and sluggish performance remain.
Maria (please consider) - Umm...? Somethings not safe here...
This game is great!!!! I love it! It would totally be a 10/10 but... Something just is not quite right, if I need coins for a hint... and I don’t have any, I have to pay real money for the coins right? Makes TOTAL sense! But if you decide... “nah I’m not spending my money” the you tap the button to get out of the thingy because you don’t REALLY need coins blah blah blah! Anyway so the a thing pops up every time (just how the game works) and it list three was you can get more coins for FREE!!!!! Well... this is ware the UNSAFE business happens... the 3 ways you can get coins for free that are listed is, 1. Video (totally safe that’s no big deal) 2. Offers (just more videos, or downloading games witch is totally fine) And 3. surveys!!!!! DO NOT TAKE THE SURVEY!!!! It asked me for my age, name, and some other personal info!!! I stoped immediately and made sure it did not go through. Now I’m not saying don’t buy the game!!! It’s a GREAT game!!! The survey is the only bad thing about it. I’m just saying... it might not be bad... but I personally don’t trust that kinda stuff. Anyway this is a amazing game and I can’t stop playing!!! Thank you to anybody that has actually bothered to read this 😂😂😂
GigiMSN21 - Photos and butterflies are too long
I really like this app. I like that there is a dictionary so if one in unfamiliar with a word they can click a button to read definition. I’m not digging how it seems in challenges words tend to be alphabetical. I’m not happy with being forced into a tournament last week. I’m also not happy with the “photos” that in order to reach 100% it’s taking so long to get rest of category. I played last week a lot only because I was riding in a car traveling. My life does not permit to sit and play for hours on end. I only have one photo left to complete a category but after playing for several hours I’ve not gotten anything but repeat photos. I don’t have the whole photo time to play to get one final photo. The Butterfly thing I will never have the time to play to fill the entire goal. It’s not attainable for people with a life outside of game. How do people reach 6000 or higher in one weekend without having a robotic arm? I will continue solving the puzzles but
Beautifullittlefool - Great
Many words are overused for example you see words were used in multiple puzzles and far too many words that are good words- words that are not overused, are not included in the puzzles. Beautiful backgrounds and a very relaxing game. Kids should not be worse or cost 100 points but it takes 100 extra words not included the crosswords to come up with that many. To clarify what has to come back with 100 words that are not included in the puzzles just to be able to get want to hint at what hit is only one letter at a word either the entire ward that proportion is way off. Yes the same words are used over and over and over again that will be the reason that I stop playing this game. There are billions of words at the English language to use the same words over and over again completely deplete the purpose of the game. But it is a great relaxing way to enjoy a Phone game at all so I do find it addictive. It only needs slight revision. With the game finally finished is there a grand prize? it’s not clear on that.
AmyHasHope - GREEDY UPDATE
This is my favorite game and I spend hours playing. Via my friends in the tourney I recently learned the newest update TOOK OUT many words, real words, mind you, that had been rightfully added to an expanded dictionary several months ago. The reason: A money grab. Less bonus words equal less coins earned equals more people have to buy coins via the recently brought back “piggy bank”.
I have this game on two devices, and I have paid for them both. I have not had to buy hints, as I didn’t need them. Then they introduced the tournaments where I use them frequently. Once I run through the coins I have accumulated, I WILL need to buy hints, thus giving the game some more revenue. That will likely be the case for many, many players! But instead they went for the easy money, and ticked off the most loyal, adoring players in the process.
I'm fortunate I was warned NOT to update, but many people I care about had auto updates "on". Wordscapes, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more loyal player than me. But this new update is beyond the pale. It is "shameful", as one reviewer wrote. Kindly put the expanded dictionary back where it belongs, and KEEP the players that have supported you for a very long time, because I don’t know if they’ll stick around without you doing so.
Happy Psalm 113:9 - Fun! But Please Fix Binocular Game!
My husband and I love to play this binocular game! (We also race against each other with the daily game and compete as individuals in the tournaments.). We were enjoying the Binocular Game to earn little pictures/avatars. However, we are getting too frustrated with the earned avatar rewards constantly and repeatedly giving us points toward the same pictures we’ve already unlocked. We invest a lot of time playing to unlock a picture...which already takes 1-3 rounds of 5-6 games each to unlock! We aren’t Mensa geniuses! It takes us a little time to complete some of these puzzles! Then, when we’re looking forward to see our reward, it’s been the same avatar over and over. I had 1 one avatar with 7 points! It unlocked at 3. I know you gave me another prize after 3 to 4 repeats but even THAT one was a repeat! Please review this and make a programming change so that once an avatar is unlocked, points go to other unlocked avatars only! Then we can feel like it truly is a reward worth playing for.
Thanks for all the other things we love about this game!
#PUGSrock - Love it! Just one little thing
I love Wordscapes it is a great game. I play it for almost a while everyday. I like that there’s wide verities of hints like bees, rockets, normal hints, shuffle, and targets. I have heard some complaints about the ads but I disagree they are not interrupting the game because they only come after a round. I also enjoy getting a prize everyday weather it is a free hint or just coins, it is a great feature. I love that there’s a dictionary space because when I write,I haves wide selection of words to choose from. But there is two little problems.
One: when you start the daily puzzle but don’t Finnish it you can’t start the next day. I know that the point of the daily puzzle is to do a new puzzle everyday but maybe you could make a “Resume” button or a “Start a new one”
Two: there is a space for ads on the bottom of the word bank, so if my hand slips it brings me right to the App Store. I know that Wordscapes themselves don’t provide the ads but they can at least move the bar. Aside from those problems Wordscapes is a great game, thanks for reading. And a wonderful game!
GiveTheOldOneBack - I’m Giving Up
I am addicted to word games and have quite a few of them on my phone. I have decided to delete this one, however, because it is so frustrating. Even though I have contacted the developers twice with questions, the answers I got did not resolve the issue nor actually answer my specific question. Also, the few directions that are available are confusing, especially when dealing with tournaments. Some issues: I will input the same word several times during the course of one game and it is not accepted, and then all of a sudden it is. And basic everyday words are not accepted in some games but are in others. They will allow the word “can” but not “canned”, as in canned vegetables. It’s totally frustrating, and I keep shaking my head and wonder why I’m wasting my time. But not any more. On to more satisfying pursuits in the world of words. Add the fact that you have to watch an ad after every game, Wordscapes is not worth my time. A note to users who choose to keep playing this inferior game: after you play a game and the ad pops up, shut the game and then come right back to it and you avoid having to watch the ad, many of which repeat with irritating regularity.
Nlg2642 - Fun diversion with flaws
I’ve been playing this for some months now and enjoy it when I have a few minutes here and there. I do crosswords as well and it’s fun to look at 6 or 7 letters in any given puzzle and either see immediately the word that uses all of them—or to stare at it blankly wondering how any of those letters combine to make anything. The problem is that any words you make that aren’t in the grid should go into the bonus words. But the dictionary they use for the bonus words is so limited that I have long lists of valid words that are both in the dictionary and in common use that the game rejects. Added to that, they accept very few non-American spellings and non-American English words. I have emailed the developer about my frustration with the game, and they responded but didn’t seem to consider my concerns valid. They also have weekly contests, with point prizes for the top ten scorers. That was fine at first, but the game has so many users now that they should at least double the number of prizes. If the dictionary was improved, I would probably give the game 5 stars, but it’s too frustrating as it is to fully enjoy it.
Dvlpr235 - Allowing team members the privilege to bully players
This game was a lot of fun until we encountered OldFarts. The team choked all the fun out of the game. Because they are allowed to bully players within the design of the chat. This team is allowed to single out players based on the player’s level of points. Also they force you to use the chat. The team claims to be looking to for players to chat and enjoy tournaments. No. You are required to chat and play ever weekend for hours and hours. The designers should consider offering a delayed start feature for tournaments that is separate from chatting. That way players don’t have to talk to the bullies when they want to play. The delay start feature should be available for top players to choose the length of the delay. I didn’t report the team OLDFARTS because they have the platform on their side of the situation. I have deleted the app/ game because this team ruined the fun of a GAME. I have a job and playing on a team & tournaments should be fun. I’m done spending my money to play a game with a design flaw that allows forced participation. You can’t join a successful team without being subjected to the high level players whims.
Rustlini - I love the game, but two stars for the ads.
The game is extremely addicting and fun to play, but the ad breaks between the game is being horribly abused. I really don’t mind that a free game has an ad break in between rounds, but instead of having to skip through the initial ad, and then its follow-up ad of the same game, it is now forcing a third ad of the same useless game, significantly longer wait times, and it’s as if the closing button is now even smaller, and forces you to open the appstore at least 2-3 times before it finally allows you to close it. Even after that, if you don’t close it out in time, IT EITHER PLAYS THE AD ALL OVER AGAIN OR STARTS A WHOLE OTHER AD! Practically forcing your users to download useless games that they do not want to play is NOT how you gain their attention! It is greedy! I hate to remove this game because I genuinely enjoy it, but if the ad issues don’t get resolved, I’m probably just going to remove the app and find an indie app developer that doesn’t cram ads down your throat the way this game has been, and take my business to them. If you would like video proof of these ads in action, I can definitely make it happen.
Kwhite9266 - Not for word game lovers
If you’re a big fan of high scoring word games, this is... frustrating. It’s been known for a long time that the dictionary of this game is severely lacking. I’ve looked and it probably contains around a third of the playable Scrabble words of 3-7 letters. This is frustrating if you’re big into word games to see real English words be rejected over and over again. But it’s not their fault. At one point, a few months back, the developers randomly expanded their dictionary to include just about every scrabble word. This lasted maybe 2 weeks; I’m guessing the outcry from the fan base was loud and angry. In the tournament mode on the weekends, bonus words count for a lot, so if you don’t know the words you are at a tremendous disadvantage. So the dictionary was scaled back once again and valid words are back to being rejected. Oh well. I still play it but it’s frustrating even when you know which words are allowed. At this point it’s kind of a memory game: this real English word is fine, but this one isn’t. Stakes are low though, so it’s a fine distraction. Just don’t expect a challenge.
Shorty and Lilybelle's Mom - Not Happy
There are issues with the game that others have outlined in detail - the basic nature of the vocabulary and the lack of recognition of some pretty standard usage words and the inclusion of non-words, the ridiculous “piggy bank” which stockpiles “coins” you’ve earned through playing but cannot access without paying (outrageous!), etc.
But the thing that made me delete the game was the tourney this past weekend. I had forgotten to play until later on Saturday, played for awhile on Sunday then had things to do. When I remembered and checked about an hour after the tourney ended, I was pleased to see my beautiful new crown and that I had finished in second place which is where I’d been pretty much for the time I’d played on Sat and early Sun. Imagine the disappointment on Monday when I went in to play and suddenly my new crown was gone and another player was now listed in 2nd place with 3 or 4 more points than I had.
It’s a silly thing perhaps, but it’s a digital game and scores are tabulated by computer so there’s no way a score can change unless it’s deliberately changed and not earned. It was the final straw of frustration before the camel walked away rather than have its back broken.
Dmdmdkdkskcmskskdskskd - Team Issues
I like this game but i am also really social. But sometimes i find a team i love and it’s full. And other active teams don’t let people like me in for some reason ☹️
Can you create a way to customize the amount of people that can be in? And notifications to the leader of a team of selections of people. Like if you’re the leader, you can select members of your team. And different types of notifications like “helped” or “chatted” or something else like “left”. And also add something like the team minimum and when a certain person reaches it? Also make the amount of teams for the default to be 65, maybe? It’d benefit a ton of people. But add the member amount customization?
Sorry if this is really confusing but i think a ton of updates to the team settings could be added!! Thank you! :D
also the reason i said team member amount customization because a team i love is full i was coming back but then it was full of inactive players and now i’m sad they said they wanted a second team but leadership is scary for me. 😳
Vivvie1 - Scam so you are sucked into spending $$$
This is potentially a terrific game which sadly hinges on a player spending tons of money. If you are a ‘wordie’ like I am, you are always looking for brain teasers. The game itself is a good brain teaser. HOWEVER, beware!! As you move up levels you will be enticed to spend money in order to move up in the game. I purchased the $2.99 option which removed adds, thinking I would be free to play the game. NOT SO! I am now stuck having to watch adds, or take a survey if I want to move forward in the game and cannot come up with a particular word. For each Ad or survey you watch, you earn 25 points. 100 points are needed for a letter clue. Another peeve, I know more words than the puzzle itself, so rather than give me the word I know, the puzzle either doesn’t know the word, or pushes it off to the side in a category box for ‘additional words’, where it just languishes. There is no extra win associated with knowing more. All-in-all, this is an extremely frustrating game if you don’t want to spend lots of money to purchase playing time. I hope the developers read this and take to heart that they can’t expect people to pay a fee ($2.99) and then continue to squeeze. For sheer frustration, I rate this game with one star.
Alexrulez40000 - A good game
You would think it would be a rip off but it’s not if you want your kid to learn this is the way to go if you want them to learn how to spell and read words download this game it is awesome it deserves a five star rating for do you know I’m helping your child learn stuff so if I think you if you think you’re ready to have your kid do that if they’re ready for half a challenge and the challenge is to download splash math these both will help you I am a kid speaking right now I use flash math and I use Wordscapes I love both of them they’re amazing they help thank you for listening to what I’m saying this is great please check out these two games give it a five star rating and you should like to see the difference The difference is great end it really helps my kid was learning was having so much trouble doing addition addition and she was learning how to do fifth grade mathShe learned how to do that in like five minutes do you want from kindergarten to fifth grade level it was phenomenal thank you
Jsblume - Can’t Opt Out of Some Features
I enjoy finding the words and clearing the boards. However, they are a lot of extra in-game competitive activities that you can’t opt out of and, for me, seriously detracts from my enjoyment of the game. The most recent addition is a feature called “Star Rush” that is active during the weekend tourney and awards you up to 4 stars if you clear a board in less than 3 minutes. Since I generally can clear a board in less than 30 seconds, this award pops up after every single board. This is very annoying because I don’t even want to participate in the tourney - let someone else have my spot. I paid $2.99 because I wanted to get rid of the ads, and now I’m refraining from using it on the weekend during the tourney because it’s not fun for me.
I’ve read a lot of reviews about this app when it comes to cheating and to word choices, and I want to add my voice to these concerns. There are websites that provide the solution to nearly every level, making it far too easy for a player to rank very high and very fast in the tourney. There are also valid words that are not accepted, as well as prior names that are. I’ve read a good review for solutions to both of these issues.
Mr_coldcutts - Fun little game to help kill time, but one flaw
I’ve been playing this game for a couple months now. It’s a fun way to kill time and even exercise your brain a bit. I do like that it has a feature that lets you easily look up the definition of words that you might not recognize, so it has helped me expand my vocabulary a bit. This also, however, exposes one of the flaws of the game. The one frustrating thing about this game is with what words it will and will not recognize. This fault is not so much with the game itself, but with the dictionary source it uses. It allows a few slang and abbreviated words that I wouldn’t have thought to use. It even allows for some slightly more scientific terms but not others. Most notably, it doesn’t allow for certain words that connote a more recent understanding and sensitivity to LGBTQ populations. Once again, I point this not a flaw of the actual coding, but rather the dictionary base that it uses. Finally, the amount of ads within the game is a bit annoying, but such if the case fit just about any freemium game.
Savage_tootsie_roll✌️🤟🏻 - Challenging and fun!
I love playing this game to be able to challenge my brain. I also love how if you put a word on the puzzle, you can click it to see the actual definition of the word. The only thing I don’t like is how getting a hint for just one letter in whole puzzle costs 100 coins. Yes, you can get a bunch of coins, and the hints are pretty easy to pay for, but I don’t like how they are so “overpriced” and the fact that you don’t even get to pick which spot to get a hint on makes it more overpriced. But despite this little issue, (which I would love to see changed in a possible next update,) this game is super fun and is just the right amount of challenging. A lot of the time when I am bored in the car, or traveling, or just ya going out in my room, I do use this game as a time killer, which does seem to be helpful to kill time, and it’s super soothing with all the calming slow music, and how the backgrounds on the puzzles are always really pretty pictures and they are really soothing to look at, too. I definitely love this game, and would love to see the one change made to it.
Zach Knowledge - Fun While it Lasts
After seeing so many different ads for this game, I finally downloaded Wordscapes. The game was a lot more fun to start off than what I thought it would be. The early levels are easy and introduce the crossword mechanic to you so you get familiar with it. As you progress through the levels, the puzzles get harder. To help with the harder puzzles, the game gives you power ups, but I hardly found the need to use them and the money to buy hints was very easy to come across. The game offers a nice variety of backgrounds for all the different levels, so the game as a whole is a peaceful experience that also makes you feel like you are keeping your mind sharp. I do admit though that some charm is lost after 100 levels or so, and I found myself not feeling the urge to keep continuing on. This may be because it is still just the same game mechanic over and over. So the experience is still a fun one but it does lose a bit of appeal after some time. I see a lot of complaints on the ads of the game, but they didn’t bother me an they would only last for 5 seconds usually. A solid game overall.

Sienna teehee - This app is great!
This app is good because it helps with anxiety and it is good to help get to sleep if you can’t sleep but also can’t be bothered to read a book. Also I’m pretty sure that this game increases your I.Q I’m not sure but yeah. Also this game is addictive but not too addictive so if your playing it and you have things to do you are able to go and do it without feeling the urge to keep looking at your devise or whatever. Also as I mentioned this really, really helps with anxiety, I have really bad anxiety and whenever I play this it calms me right down and also because I am so concentrated on the game I forget about my worries and stuff. This app has really helped me and also really, really, really fun. His app also doesn’t have much adds, when your in the middle of a puzzle it doesn’t interrupt you with random adds. Definitely recommend getting this app. 😊
Mimi N K O - It’s great...
Except for the fact that the music remains the same throughout. It’d be nice to have different music for different sections, so Forest could have a soft background sound of rain with some forest-y music over it (preferably with a woodwind instrument; they tend to be evocative of rainforests), and Sky could have some twinkly music or something (maybe using chimes; they tend to sound “twinkly”).
What I love about this is it’s backgrounds. They’re all gorgeous, and I love that the colour of the filled in word changes according to the sections. It does, however, get a little boring looking at the same shade the whole time, so maybe keep the same colour but change the shades that appear (e.g. Forest could go from a light, almost lime green colour to a deep, forest green colour by the time you’re done with the section). Alternatively, use different colours progressively as levels are completed, but colours that correspond to that level (e.g. Sky could have green that fades into blue that fades into purple that fades into magenta...(think the way the Auroras work or think of the paintings of the cosmos and the colour schemes and colour fades from there)).
Other than that, this game is great for making me realise I don’t actually know as much English as I thought and then teaching me the stuff I didn’t know.
Polarbi - If it’s not one thing it’s the other
EDITED; the final fantasy ads haven’t shown up since they emailed me about it but now i have a whole bunch of other ads that are now scrollable and won’t show anywhere to close them. Also the ads that are constantly at the bottom of the screen now pop up mid play a good 25 times in a row and doesn’t stop even if I close the game. Force quit solves nothing. Just got to wait it out until it stops spazzing out. Most times I play now, the game freezes and absolutely nothing shows up on my screen and am forced to close it. Happens at least twice a day. The music makes my speakers vibrate and go weird and it is the only app on my phone that does it. Sometimes the backgrounds for the links won’t show and looks weird and is difficult to press AND half the words that are actually in the dictionary aren’t considered real words, yet stupid shortened versions, or nicknames of words are. Did the person that made this game actually go to school?
ORIGINAL; Can’t X out of the final fantasy ads and are forced to close the entire game because of them. I enjoy this game but ff ads are enough to delete it. I did already review this game but it seems to have been deleted?! Smh.
Carlyisnot - Surprisingly addictive
I saw this add so many times , and thought it seemed pointless and annoying as a game. But after trying it out it’s actually really good, very challenging. My children 6 and 9 even enjoy playing with me.
One thing that is frustrating is that you have to pay for hints , sometimes I’ll be stuck , or the kids will be , and there seems no way to move forward except for paying to get a hint. Sometimes it’s just a hard level or it’s kids playing , and aside from not wanting to waste money, I don’t want to teach them that when things are hard in life you pay money and get help.
I would like to see a kid version of the game , with some smaller words etc , my kids would love it.
NotYourSoup - I want to give this 5 stars but...
There are a lot of words that the game doesn't recognise. It's really frustrating, especially when you've got challenging letters! Some of it I can allow as being colloquial terms where I live (so may not be valid), but others seem to me to be common words. This is my biggest complaint, since this game is literally about creating words! It's also annoying because it doesn't accept names (like Rome), but accepts words based off of names (like Romans). The other thing I find annoying is when you've got multiple words you're wanting to spell, but you've just filled in the last word slot so you automatically finish the level. I can accept this as a challenge of the game, but it is nonetheless frustrating!
Aside from these things, I'm finding this game really enjoyable! It's exactly what I've been looking for awhile now!
Robert manly - Addictive
This is a well written and addictive app which is let down only by the dictionary that it uses. Many valid English words not allowed and this is not only due to the fact that it is written for an American user base. However users do need to be aware of American spelling and vocabulary to be most effective. This includes a number of Spanish words that are in common use in the US but might not come easily to those in some other countries. Another annoying feature is the use of onomatopoeic so called words such as ooh, aah, ouch etc. etc. Also annoying is the inclusion of prefixes, abbreviations, apocopes, Greek letters and occasionally foreign words. So if you are stuck on a word in a crossword you will often find it is because the word falls into one of these problem categories listed above. In summary the app would be improved by the use of a comprehensive dictionary and only allowing full English words.
Cameljockey1 - A good version of many many in the genre.
This is a good game version of many many many similar versions in this word game genre (Word Calm, Word Games etc etc). All are clones of each other in regard to set up, game physics etc. I wonder which was the originator, & how the others get away with blatantly copying it without facing legal action (copy right), or maybe they are all owned & run from one large “parent” company! I like this game but find Word Calm just a little bit better, to me it feels more polished. That said I play both! I love word games, have fun & exercise the grey matter. I play many from Scrabble to Word Searches. I find the vast vast majority of all theses games are based on very American vocabularies. So for the rest of us from the other English speaking countries of the world, you often have to think like you’re from the USA! If you’re into word games this game is worth having along with all the others.
Invenio - Just ok
While this is good to scramble your brain for words you know (or may not know) and thus keeping it “fit” there are also significant limitations, such as the limit of words this app knows about. How come “liter” (the AE version) is accepted and “litre” (the BE version) isn’t. There are many other words this app doesn’t know about and that’s a real deficiency (eg. it knows “plunge” but not “pungle”). Instead it knows useless words like “doh”, “aah” and “nah” that border on usefulness and dictionary entries. It would be good if the devs would pay better attention to that and scramble the dictionaries of the world.
Another detractor is the amount of ads and their length. There are not just on-screen Google ads, but also repetitive movie length ads between almost each level. For an app that doesn’t really require much development work this ad cashing in seems exaggerated.
Lastly, the tournament (if you don’t want to miss out on some bonus coins) becomes a real frantic race as the clocks ticks. While it’s good for user engagement for the business it destroys some of the game play with people (myself included) using available word lists to keep up.
I for my part had enough of this and say good bye to the game.
There also seem to be a couple of variations on the same game with a very similar layout, slightly different name but effectively the same game. Raking in the money…
BaiPaul - it’s fun, addictive, relaxing I supposed.. B U T
only one thing I cannot comprehend, is that thig called “bonus mystery silly word”, which is separate from the rest of the puzzle. I’m on level 104, i’m upset a little bit, why? not only, you can get a hint or whatever, but because I have a total of 10 bonus words, that’s (10 already, for fries sake) that I already guessed and not in puzzle. but I still cannot guess your “mystery word”?? I get it, you need to forced the player to spend the gold coins, then eventually spend real money, I cleary understand that part, it’s all business in the end. but, I repeat. I have already 10 guess, and still can’t guess the word. c’mon. just be fair and try to fixed this thing. because if you don’t, there’s no used of installing this game, and you can’t move to the next stage. hope you read this, thank you
Wordscapes bbg - please give me my life back
i am dangerously obsessed with this game. i start giggling and twirling my hair when i see a wordscapes notification 💀💀💀 i have wordscapes as my background because it is the only thing that sparks so much joy in my life. I connect the little words and i feel complete and overall joyous. to anybody wondering if they should download this game: although i adore it more than anything in this life, i dont suggest it. do you know how embarrassing it is to pull out WORDSCAPES in a social gathering to get my fix?Wordscapes is truly a marvel of modern science and if this is ever taken off the app store i will riot. this game is my everything, and as much as i desperately want my old life back, i cannot imagine a future without wordscapes.
LuLu LC - Message to the developer, you did an awesome job with this one!
I'm having so much fun playing this game and I've even picked up a few new words which I can now incorporate into everyday conversations, I attribute that to the fact that I'm actually able to see the meaning of each word. I play this game whenever I'm waiting in line somewhere or if I'm early to an appointment. It helps pass the time for sure! On the flip side, I also play when I’m struggling to switch my brain off long enough to fall asleep. It calms me down at night with the soft music and sound effects. I’m ready to pass out now after only playing a few short games.
One of my fav top 3 apps! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Shazzie62 - Daily game issues
I love this game and my husband and i love sharing the morning playing the daily over breakfast. However, on my Apple phone,the daily stars are assigned differently to those of my hubby who has a Samsung when rolling them over toward earning the next image and associated points. When we finish the ‘stars’ needed to earn our picture (eg the ostrich this time), mine counts the 0 first when rolling over counting 0, 1 etc… but my hubby’s Samsung app counts 1,2 when rolling over the stars earned not 0 first. Consequently i end up games behind despite earning the same number of stars as him. This has been a recent thing over a few months and seems to be a problem with the apple app version. It’s minor i know but annoying!
:-/ !-) —123 rEvEiWeR - Wordscapes review
Wordscapes is a fun and addictive game for anyone with high vocabulary or wishing for higher. I enjoy the different levels and I am beginning to like it more and more every day. The only reasons I didn’t give it a five star rating is because:
1. It needs a bit more variety and we have to unlock EVERYTHING. I agree that we should have to unlock some things, but not all.
2. We seem to only ever get small amounts of coins for completing levels or areas, yet somehow, the hints are 100 coins each!! So either we receive more coins or the hints are worth less and then I will be happy.
So to sum up this great game to challenge the mind and your vocabulary, I absolutely love it but their are some things to think about, take consideration, and possibly change, to make this game better.
MatthewWheeler - Enjoyable
Been playing this for a couple of years. A good way to keep the mind active.
A bug crept in a few releases ago, which they haven’t fixed. When doing the daily challenge, if you earn two or three stars and you also happen to complete one of the monthly tasks (such as being rewarded for ten stars), any surplus stars don’t carry forward to the next challenge. For example today, I had completed 9 of ten stars on one of the monthly challenges. I earned three stars in the daily challenge, one of which got me to ten stars on the monthly challenge, meaning I had two stars left to go towards the next monthly challenge. But those two stars did not get credited towards the next challenge.
Edoll1 - Master mind blowout
This is the best game ever!! I first saw my younger cousin playing this game and ever since I downloaded I have been addicted.
If you are looking for something that makes you think, will keep you up all night and is age appropriate then this is definitely it..
Each level gets harder and harder and the words get longer and longer as you go.
There are awesome daily challenges for you to do and the best things about it is that if you get out of the puzzle to start a new one and then you decided to go back to the other puzzle, your progress will not be lost!
In my opinion this is one of the best games ever and I highly recommend it!😇
Zee😺 - An amazing game I totally recommend
Wordscapes is a fun, challenging and all around amazing game which I recommend to everyone. Each puzzle is different and by playing I feel so much smarter already!
You discover so many words and improve your English skills due to the puzzling levels requiring you to think both logically and creatively!!!!!💖
There are literally NO flaws within the game itself, and the only complaint I would have is the fact that there are quite a few adds. But other than that wordscapes is probably one of my favourite games in the App Store it’s totally free so there’s no reason NOT to try it out!!!!
Wardrum are thieves - Most Relaxing Game Ever
I suffer from anxiety and ADD (attention deficit disorder). Sometimes I get so anxious that I flick between gaming apps on my phone to try and calm myself down and distract myself. Nothing worked until I downloaded Wordscapes.
Now, whenever I am anxious or I find that I can’t focus on anything, I open Wordscapes and within minutes I am calm and relaxed. I can spend hours on this app, which is normally incredibly difficult for me to do because of my ADD, but the simple but thought-provoking puzzles can keep me focused.
I’ve had Wordscapes downloaded for a few months and I only ever use it when I am anxious or when I can’t focus, but I am already at level 157.
Twingon - Perfect for word puzzlers!
This is one of the few games around that is still really easy to play without having to buy anything.
Yes there’s a few ads to glaze over, but as someone who rates their word skills as pretty high, I am surprised at how hard the puzzles can be at times.
There’s no variation for the core game, it’s the same puzzle format every time, so it can feel a bit repetitious, but sometimes you just want a familiar format, and there are a couple of side game options.
It’s the perfect balance of being very low key & easy to play, but challenging enough to keep you interested.
The_Punford - So badly optimised that it’s unplayable
Even if you can get past the copious obnoxious ads for borderline-scams, the game is now so badly optimised for even my iPhone 7 that it freezes constantly. I’ll try to enter a word and it will either freeze mid-swipe or crash. An absolute drain on my battery too. Of course the ads run perfect each time, so it’s clear where the priorities lie. Good luck trying to press the pixel-sized “X” without launching the App Store or website because the game assumes you want to view it after accidentally pressing a space a millimeter to the side.
Edit: Oh look, the app’s developers want me to do their job for them and identify which ads are the obvious scams. Yeah, sure, I’ll totally install this badly optimised mess and point out the painfully obvious when it isn’t freezing constantly. Sounds like a great use of my time.
Suedaytripper - Really enjoy this game.
Starts easy, gradually gets harder. I paid the small fee to get rid of the ads and it’s well worth it. More enjoyable not to get interrupted all the time. You earn coins in the game, which you can spend to get hints for letters. I’ve only used these rarely. If you keep shuffling the letters you can usually see the word you need. Or leave the game and come back and you can often see the word you need. I’m at level 400 and haven’t spent any money apart from removing ads. Buying coins would let me get through the levels quicker, but my purpose for playing the game is to exercise my brain so I won’t be doing that.
Evil_cookies - Causes overheating and apps to crash
This game is very fun, I’ve played a total of over 5 hours and I checked my battery analytics seeing as how it’ll overheat/slow down my whole phone and I need to close it and let it cool before I can play again.
It took up 74% of my battery life within the last 24 hrs. In comparison, I spent 4 hrs listening to podcasts, 2 hrs browsing the net, 2 1/3 hours listening to music and it only amount to only 19% of my battery life all together.
This needs to be fixed, I’m unsure what causes it. I’ve turned off all sounds and such. My phone is up to date and it’s a fairly new phone. I’ve never had battery issues until now. I really enjoy this game, however, the battery drainage is just too burdensome plus the overheating.
Roblox nob - Five star!
The reason that I think this app is a five star is that it expands your range of vocabulary! It helps you learn new words, improve your IQ and most importantly, it educates you! Personally, this app in one of my favorites out of all of mine. Furthermore, this wonderful app has relaxing music to let you listen to when you try to complete one of the levels! Not to mention that it helps you train your patience by trying to find out the new word that it tries to challenge you with! Best educational app I ever downloaded!
Corgilover123456789 - Annoying!
I have had this app for a long time and I used to enjoy it. Now when you complete a level you get 1 or 2 coins, to get a hint you need 100 coins, or you can pay for coins (get the picture)coins get taken from your tally for no real reason, and there is a thing called star rush which is annoying and completely confusing and the ads are excruciating, you don’t just have to watch the ads you then have click through 4 or 5 screens before it disappears and the x is so far to the right of the screen it sometimes thinks you have clicked the ad to get it and then you have to start the clicking through screens again. This game is completely ruined I will be looking for a different option.
Whiplashlady - Wordscapes - very good but tech issues
I really enjoy playing Wordscapes but there are a few shortcomings - quite frequently the whole thing just freezes and all you can do is to log out and come back later; the cost of the 'hints' is too high and designed to force using actual cash to buy a small amount of game coins; the dreadful music. At least you can just turn off the music. I'm not spending any more on the game as I find that if I get stuck trying to find a word, l just leave and come back to it later - the word becomes obvious then, and I can progress. This game is great for crossword/Scrabble addicts. When they fix the game glitches, I'll give it 5 stars.
Why are alk nicknames taken - Good app with one glitch
I was enjoying playing this word game until I reached level 259 when I chose to save my bonus stars and was taken to a screen to purchase more coins. I had already paid for the ads to be removed and wasn’t interested in spending more but there was no way of exiting the shopping screen. Twice I deleted the app and reinstalled it which allowed me to play a couple more games but ultimately getting to the shopping screen again with no option to exit. Wondering if this is a glitch or intentional. If it’s a glitch and it is fixed I would rate it 5 stars. In not fixed, probably will delete and not play it again.
Dee to the - Asset stealer
Everyone knows the value of personal data. This game is designed to steal yours and your contact’s data. Don’t be fooled.
The pretence is that you get free coins for... then once you give your data or your friend’s details, or money, it THEN provides extra terms that you’d probably NOT agree to (but it’s too late) or, it’s in the hands of a 3rd party to do a whole heap of stuff before you’d get any coins.
Don’t be a fool. If you love this sort of game I strongly suggest trying a reputable developer not one that is in the game of stealing data and money under false pretences. I asked directly about this theft, funny, no response.
If they want to cheat, here are cheat notes, to get around ads open a game when the ads starts, just double click on home button & reopen again and the game will start without having to sit through very long ads.
Isobelle ferrera - A great game ruined
Wordscapes was a really fun game until PeopleFun implemented a new “feature” called star rush this weekend. For a whopping 6 extra bonus points players now have finish a level within a certain time frame to endure yet another screen of tedious animation and tap through screens at the end of every level. This slows players down and leaves them frustrated and unmotivated. PeopleFun have now also separated individual and team scores so they do not sync so players now score more in their individual tourney than the team tourney because “star rush” points do not count towards the team score. Many teams are disheartened and have lost motivation to play, and without the incentive of team participation for their efforts, there isn’t much reason to continue playing this game.
Debs42790753 - Fun at first but getting repetitive
Enjoyed the game for the first few weeks but finding in not enjoying it as much. So many three and four letter words repeated over and over again. There seems to be a limit to the vocabulary. So many vague words’ that nobody has heard of and lots of slang and words that aren’t proper words. I mean really? Duh? Aha? Aah? They aren’t words. And what happened to the rest of the English language? Did you get a half price special on words? Only bought half of the language? Seriously guys it’s getting monotonous. Up to 5000 games and still getting 5 second 5 word games. I think the developers and getting lazy so they can keep adding new levels. Losing the desire to play
Mick3780 - Wordscapes Gliche
Good app but there is a glitch. I use two iPhones and have logged in on both. When I play Wordscapes the second phone does not “remember” what was done in the first. Brilliance score may be different, you can do the the daily puzzle a second time, and and you can collect tournament winnings twice. And you end up playing the same word games. Also the portrait count is different on the second phone. portraits won on one do not appear on the other. Feel free to contact me.
Sephira7 - More levels and a better dictionary required
I love this game but the one thing that seriously irritates me is the limited range of words that can be accepted. You accept words and slang like “thru” but won’t accept actual words like “lisle”.
Unsure why you’re using wiktionary as your basis instead of something like scrabble dictionary or an actual proper dictionary.
As I’m fast approaching the end, would appreciate more levels being added and different words, I’m seeing recycled words and puzzles and scapes as well which is disappointing.
Good things about this game: do love the music, love the concept (combo of boggle and crosswords), love coins per bonus word, love the tournaments, love the shuffle being free.
Lou The Celebrant - Addictive but small probs
Highly addictive while educational
Is however annoying and frustrating when words are identified as ‘bonus’ words but later appear as game words and so you can sometimes enter the same word and have it rejected on three attempts, only for it to be accepted on the fourth, but doesn’t happen too often.
Also VERY annoying that even with sound turned off on the game, the sound reactivates on the adds with very annoying music.
As expected, uses an American dictionary and so spelling is sometimes surprising however is still an enjoyable, educational and interesting game.
Chloejolee - Great game
Love this game because it teach little kids to spell and learn new words through there years of school you should definitely make more and you are such good game developers and designers keep on going and well done. Keep going on with what you do and make all kids have a great learning experience you have made me and others more determined to find out the words and to learn new words I love your game so keep doing your self and don't stop.😀😁
Wooloobaloo - Ads kill this game
I understand the developers need us to make purchases or watch ads to play but watching an ad between virtually every level that takes longer than the game itself kills any enjoyment.
Free play is meant to get you interested enough to keep playing, and paying, but at this rate, I can’t even play enough to want to keep playing.
So many ads aren’t clickable either and freeze for minutes. The only way forward is to close the app completely and then reopen. ANNOYING doesn’t even cover how frustrating the ads make this game. So I won’t be continuing to sample this game. It could be fun but too many ads killed any possible fun.
Ytgbnmiopkljhdsewq - Good game but............
There is a lot of repetition of words and a lot cannot be considered proper words as per a dictionary, such as deli. US spelling takes getting used to but I’m up to level 1161 in 4 weeks and I’m not getting much of a challenge now. I haven’t had to use any hints for 2 weeks so will probably delete this game soon. Last, and most annoying, ADS, ADS, my god. I know this how the games get revenue but to have an ad at each and every single game, sometimes even if you leave a game and come back, you will have to wait for an annoying, stupid ad, none of which I have any interest whatsoever in using. Another reason why I will delete this game.
Desnni22 - Addictive
This is a highly addictive game. As with other games, it is possible to buy tokens however, there are plenty of opportunities to gain these without having to spend a cent. The developers also appear to be interested in the players’ views so they ask for feedback frequently. I would have given it five stars if it wasn’t for the fact that I have not been able to figure out how to get rid of the ads (there are ads after each game), and because it excludes many words that are present in normal dictionaries.
Miriam Grace Batt 12 yr old - This is great but pls tead
First of all this is a great game there is no. Ads so i dont know whats wrong bc im level 59 and i have no ads so far. BUT there is 1 problem and that is its to easy its so easy i mean its fun but sometimes its just to easy u know? I like it easy but some levels are too easy pls make them easy but not too easy apart from that its a great game i get bored often and this helps with boredom. BORED? Play this game ( unless u cant bc u cant go on ur device or something). THANK YOU FOR THIS AMAZING ( COPIED ) GAME 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍🤲👍👍
P.S is it just me or do u have the same response to everyones problems..
Dootsy💩 - Game is Great - Up until I got charged $20
The game is absolutely great. Very accommodating and even has a dictionary for you to learn the words.
However, the Ads were just plain annoying after level 80 because that’s when you want to get as many stars as possible for the competition. So this is where I thought I’d fork out $5 to pay for no Ads... but then I kept getting declined and declined, even though I had $10 on my card to make the payment... so I thought okay I’ll put $50 on the card, ONLY TO BE CHARGES $20!!!!! Why am I forming out an extra $15?! Please explain and please reimburse me for my $15 when you advertise in your In-Game store that it’s only $5.
Emja78 - Good game, very glitchy
I have downloaded the game twice in the attempt to avoid the problem. I’ve contacted support and they haven’t been able to resolve the it. The issue is I seem to get a few levels in and the game stops being able to process the words I’m writing. I went back to redo levels to see if it was something I was doing. I can’t enter words there either. I enjoy the game but not the hassles. Glad I didn’t pay. If I don’t hear from support soon I will likely delete and try again in a few months time. If it does the same again I’m writing it off. Sorry for the neutrality of the review I liked the game but it doesn’t work well.
Grassy2706 - Enough is enough
The current Star Rush is just demeaning, can bring on anxiety in slower players who can’t complete a puzzle in the allotted time. It takes far too long to get to the next puzzle, making much slower progress and less stars accumulated for tourneys. It just doesn’t slow down faster players… it slows down ALL players!!! So really what is the point of it? To get people to spend their coins to keep their star count up with bonus’s then spend real money to buy more coins when they run out…. There may be gullible people out there who will fall for that but the smart ones will give the game the flick and go elsewhere. Peoplefun… your IT wizards need to realise the consequences of all changes before applying them.
MnMtheAwesome - Amazing game needs some work
Wordscapes is an amazing game just like others have said. But there is something I need to say. When you complete a level or daily challenge you can’t go back and see what it is, wordscapes uses interesting words that I don’t know and I play it without wifi so I can’t look up the definitions of the words... if only I could go back and do it when I am on wifi. Or sometimes people I know need some help with it but I can’t look back on the levels or daily challenges I’ve done. It is a pretty good game apart from that and the music being the same. Thanks for reading
Kylzams - Awesome game except…
1 star less for The advertising banner that pops up in the middle of the screen every 60 to seconds and blackens the game out is infuriating so let’s take a moment to be grateful for the ad pop ups in between sets on other games and this banner sits down the bottom of the screen all the time… honestly despite my score if it persists I will change games and I don’t care what the banner is selling I would never consider buying what it’s selling based on how annoying this is.. remove the banner and I’ll remove this review. Xx
Evanescing Echoes - Fun and relaxing
I enjoy playing this so much, the background music and images are very pleasant. It has so many levels and it’s now one of my favourite games for a mobile device ever. Bookworm used to be my longtime favourite, but I think this one just might beat even that.
It’s easy to pick up and use and is swift in loading times.
The only complaint I have is that there are a little too many ads for my liking. Some of them are skippable from the start and a few others aren’t and I think the ones where you have to wait a little longer are a tad annoying.
CrackedChelle33 - Love the backgrounds
Pretty good, similar to other games. Addictive (PS: ‘addicting’ has been used incorrectly in the advertising for this app. The right word is ‘addictive’.)
Ways that this could be improved:
- different music to go with the different backgrounds. For example, the Rise-Grow-Shine level will have one background and one tune. The Forest level will have the forest background and a new, forest tune.
- improve grammar usage throughout the app and its advertising. The game is called ‘Wordscapes’, so you would expect the game to have exceptional grammar usage, otherwise the game looks cheap, which it does at the moment.
Aady45 - So good
Brilliant game! So fun and addictive for the whole family, I play it all the time and I don’t think I’ll get bored with it! I highly recommend getting this. Just one problem, not sure is it happens to everyone, but there are permanent buttons on my apps (From Wordscapes) they aren’t useable, the buttons are the back button and the 3 dots button (top), shuffle and bonus word button. I’ve tried everything to remove them. I don’t want to delete the game so please if you have a fix please help.
Cartysmum - LOVE THIS GAME!
Have been playing for a few weeks now, and I really love this word game, it’s challenging and fun! My teenagers and I all play and challenge each other. Our vocabularies are building daily! I love that you can find out what a word means if you don’t know. I believe we will NEVER get in to the top of the charts....those people must have been playing forever?! But we enjoy it so far, would totally recommend installing, I’m even considering spending actual money to remove the adverts I like the game so much!
GeoffNBeth - My new go-to!
Firstly, Thankyou for such a fun challenging game. I’m not a gamer of any sort, before I found Wordscapes I played a few rounds of Words with Friends with my dad as he is deaf and it created a gateway for us to communicate. That’s the extent of it.
I love the daily challenges and the bonus of the little game helps which create interactive fun while playing.
I’m also very impressed with the scenes and backgrounds and love the music. I recently downloaded the Calm app and find their sounds fascinating. I wondered if there was any way possible to have a slightly more meditating sound/tune in the background as well as the one you already have.
I noticed too that the ads disappear once you either reach a certain level, or buy credits. That’s a bonus. Thanks.
All in all a fantastic game. Thanks again. I recommended it as often as possible.
Norton from Oz - STUPID HINT BUTTON PLACEMENT!!
PLEASE FIX THIS ALREADY!!
Lowering this to two stars as it’s been over a year now.
ABSOLUTELY HATE HATE HATE THE PLACEMENT OF HINT BUTTONS!!
I don’t usually use hints, but when lying down and holding my iPad with one hand, my forefinger hits the Hint button too often, wasting credit I didn’t need. Please consider and fix this!!
I enjoy Wordscapes very much on my iPad, but as I hold it with one hand, all too often I end up wasting a hint when I didn’t intend on using one! I would like the option of hiding all hints unless tapping something to reveal them, or an option to confirm I did want to use one of three types of hints.
It’s also annoying cloud sync doesn’t really sync everything.
And it’s bizarre some words aren’t included, “pho” is one. And I’m not sure if one time “burbs” was accepted, but not “burb”, and the kicker was the dictionary for burbs listed it as a plural for burb!
And while I’m at it, showing more info like points and/or rank while in game mode for Tournaments would be welcome.
LJBaz - Good game
Changing my review. Wasn’t that impressed with the latest update, I’m still not sure really the point of the animals, however, I have to give credit to the developers for responding to my issues quickly and helping me sort it out. I’ve never had a game developer do this as well as they have here. I love Wordscapes and the tournaments and will continue to play this game. It’s totally worth buying the app to remove the ads.
Last mistake - It’s mine.
This game was a great game to play prior to the last one or two updates and it shows that the programmers do not play these games at all, if they do they would find that they couldn’t close ads as their “x” is out of the screen boundaries. This locks the game for any other play that you want to play, you will find it doesn’t happen during the daily games but when you get into the secondary games for the day well that when everything locks up after the first ad. If it’s not fixed very soon I will be deleting the game very soon as I had enough of it. Like to hear from other users that have the same problem .
Petermc53 - Postol53
Well what can I say?
I have deliberated over this for at least ten seconds and I am lost for words.
Is it good that I am laying here naked in bed playing word games? Or should I get up and get ready to do nothing again for the day.
I know. I will get up, have a shower and then lay on the bed and play games - again.
COVID has been over dramatised by our politicians and the media. They have destroyed businesses and affected our mental well being, especially mine. I can’t work as the states have closed their borders because of the over reaction of our “Leaders”. They are not leaders. They listen to a person supposedly qualified and isolate EVERYONE instead of just the small minority who should be protected.
It’s like isolating everyone because a person gets a cold.
That’s it, I’m going to play games.

Beautiful visuals, and challenging but not too difficult. Lots of levels, and not too many ads. Have recommended to my friends.

The best one !
DarkSue - The Ads You Run Are Creepy, Sexist & Disgusting
Currently on your app there is an ad for a game about a woman losing custody. You know kids play this game and this is disturbing. Also this was not the only creepy ad you allow on your app. I’m done with this creepy company.
Jewwwwleee - Good. But
Too many ads. 2 ads instead of only one, makes it annoying to sit and wait to cancel them
Cdnparadise - Fun Addictive Brain Workout
Great game set on beautiful backgrounds.
Akahrianna - Riddled with ads
I get that it is free, but this is too much. An ad after every single level is a bit ridiculous. If you are doing well you spend more time looking at ads than you do playing the game. There are better word games with less ads. Go play those.
I shouldn’t HAVE to pay to get rid of ads, in order to make the game playable.
If the developers read this. Every time I play this game I am putting airplane mode on as a middle finger to you. If it were more reasonable I would let the ads play.
To their copy and paste response: no, there are ads to support the developers, and then there is your greed. There are plenty of games that do ads reasonably. Then there is this one, “make the game unplayable unless they pay to remove the ads”.
This is just a review so people know they will be getting a crazy amount of ads, I will put it in airplane mode to avoid them, instead of paying for your “make the game playable” purchase, so you don’t make a cent off me. And others should do the same.
Mouflon768 - Love it…. Super addicting
Just started this game a few days ago and I got hooked Super fast and now my 15year old is leaning over my shoulder and helping me with words too! Family fun!
Summersummersummerismyname - Incredulous!
The game starts off well (warning: it can be addicting), hence the one star rating. However, in later levels, the word library/algorithm/what have you was very selective in a double standard way, which was enough to turn me off this game for good! For example... Why is ‘nano’ (a scientific term) not considered a word when many other far more obscure scientific words are?! Why was ‘newt’ (singular) not considered a bonus word but ‘newts’ (plural) was?! Explain that to me! I will be deleting the game as these double standards have increasingly become very frustrating!!
Basketnall - Uhhhh
Why is shrek not a word????
Catheybla spelma - Waste of time
Started playing the game, it could be a good and enjoyable game, but there are too many ads and if you want to play, you have to pay. I bought a piggy bank thinking it would be good, when the piggy bank filled up, you have to pay again to open it!!! Very disappointing. It is a pity that the creators were so greedy, it could be a good game if poor people could enjoy it too!
IlsaL - Great ad platform
I get to watch so many ads, and sometimes I even play a game! (Yes I know I can disable ads, but not for 10 bucks when I’m not sure I even want to keep playing). The ads are annoying as hell, sometimes I can’t tell how to dismiss them. That’s YOUR problem, not mine!
Specialk2502 - Enjoyable, but need to increase vocabulary, and be consistent in what types of words are allowed
Vocabulary is very limited. Too many legitimate words (e.g. ewer, treed) aren’t accepted, and too many obscure, rarely used words (e.g. lier), slang words (cocker, nan, veep), and “Americanized” words (e.g. lite (but not nite?)) are accepted. Also needs to be consistent - some abbreviated words are accepted (ref, mil, lib, croc, spec, abs, lat, pecs, etc.) but others are not (intel, min, dem, etc.). Also euro is accepted, but peso is not (don’t think I’ve seen the word dollar come up, but I’ll assume it would be accepted). And why is wile accepted but not wiles?? Same with luge, but not luges??
I wish you could select different levels - easy, medium, hard, etc. so that some with a larger vocabulary than others could be challenged while others who don’t could still enjoy the game.
While I do agree there are lots of ads, my biggest annoyance is how many times I’ve accidentally clicked on the hint buttons and lost my coins. It takes so long to accumulate 300 coins, so it’s extremely frustrating to lose them by accidentally touching the hint options. You should include a double check “are you sure?” option.
Babacoogie - So-so needs some work.
So-so game. Lots of ads, lots of words missing from their library:
Are just a few so far.
Pretty well have to shut off cell data and wifi for it to be decently playable.
Dutchluvcheese - Edam
Level 78, Edam is a word, it’s a type of cheese
Jeffzerro - Ad festival
It’s honestly cancerous how the ads work, it’s 5 seconds but not really cause once you click x there’s another 5 seconds you have to look at the picture and then click x and sometimes there’s even another frickin prompt that you also have to click x on. That’s insane that anyone allows these type of ads to exist, how is showing me the ad 3 separate times gonna get me to download it, it just gets me upset.
Nicknametakenandtoolong - Creators never owned a dictionary
The amount of words that you get ripped off of is unbelievable!! The ads are enough to throw your phone, have to play with data off. This games horrible use of using as example 4 words and then literally just pluralizing said 4 words to make it the rest of the puzzle, yet I can get 9 or 10 extra words without plurality and that’s if they count words that do exist. Easy brain waste to play but if your easily frustrated with bs….warning
Adjrj f - ThAnk you
So awesome for my brain. I’m old and need to keep my brain working. Thanks Wordscapes!
Eliza ham - Cool
I like this game
Elaine M. Chartier - Canadian Gal
I love the challenge.
Irubiera - Like it
Hoss777+ - Not happy!
Just downloaded Word Scapes - played to several levels, then the screen went blank momentarily and another game (“Bubble” ... something or other) showed up that required it to be downloaded before I could leave that screen. I had to delete Word Scapes to get out. Sorry, not happy won’t redownload.
Partylite girl - Wordscapes
Great word game. Makes you think
Kulwinderpal kaur brar - Not child appropriate
Had a few words that were bad
HunfungGigit - Love this game.
We play for hours every night no joke.
JawsDemon - Good entertainment
I’m bored, I sad, I’m grieving the death of my daughter. Nobody could love her as much as me.
Skyye77 - Wordscapes
My family is very disappointed with Wordscapes.6 of us play and are fed up. On Butterfly day the number of games required to get a butterfly has doubled. Also, if you leave a game then return, that game has disappeared. I’m not sure what the plan is but these factors are putting us off the game. We all love the game but our patience is running thin. It’s as if you aren’t watching enough ads to gain coins and they are unhappy and feel they are losing money.
Please clean up your act, I quite like the game but their nonsense has become untenable .
They don't like this review - Ads are inappropriate
Too many ads that make you wait an inordinate length of time and an ad about ‘King’s Choice’ where he chooses a half naked girl for his pleasure. What is wrong with you?
Cb calgary - Ads ads ads
The ads have become ridiculous. 1-1/2 min long and if you’re in a tournament you’ll get more and it slows down. Also people show up out of nowhere with thousands of points so discouraging. Avoid tournaments for this reason. Too bad. I liked this game.
Sunny-5115 - Hate Star Rush - please remove
Hate star popped up and eating away my coins …. 3 min time limit is horrible …time ticking away…please remove it and I will update the rating.
KoalaBrownie - Ad heavy, repetitive
Ads in game. Ads between puzzles. Repetitive puzzles. Many times it’s less about figuring out a word than remembering what words you used in a previous puzzle. But I’m literally getting an ad after every puzzle! It’s just a word game! Minimal graphics, new content easy to implement - sorry but not worth it.
Som personnnnn - Racist to Asians
The word Asia was not added as a bonus word even though i was able to spell it out
Sew_n_fruit - ads stall app
the tim horton gift card add freezing app every time it runs..dump it-lease!
Lexi texii - :)
I love this game but it should only be 25 for the hint
SaSavB - Not the same
Have been enjoying Wordscapes for over a year but recent changes are very frustrating. An update wiped out all my accumulated credits and new points earned are not being applied. Time for a new game.
Wonderappleboy - Wordscapes
Very slow, app freezes and ads don’t respond to “x” many times with three or four no responsive pages. This continues to get worse as time goes on.
Tiapet99 - Great brain exercise!
Tayla Rose 1911 - STUPIDDD🤬🤬🤬
ITS DIGUSTING IT NOT ONLY SETS YOU TO UP TO FAIL BUT ITS A SCAM TOO!!!😡🤬😡 EVEN IF YOU GET IT RIGHT A MILLON TIMES IT SAYS YOUR WRONG THEN YOU HAVE TO USE 100 DOLLARS TO GET A HINT ITS SHOWS THE ANSERW YOUR WROTE AND ITS BURNS YOU BATTERY FASTER THEN A CHEETAH RUNNING TREADMILL!!!!
Asomehorsey - Decent Game and Fun concept but...
Okay so I love this game it’s challenging and really fun. The game shows me the meaning of a word i may not know by clicking on it. However there is a problem with levels using the same words a couple of times for example something like cot would be a word as well as cots. Also the in-game spending is to much. Hints should be free. That’s the only two problems though this game has never crashed and I play it almost daily.
Msrses - Fun
This app is using over 10 GB and is causing numerous issues on my iPad. I contacted their Help desk but no one got back to me. Good brain exercise but I don’t know where they get their dictionary because it doesn’t accept words that are in a standard dictionary. Yet it allows slang like for example ‘bro’. If they actually used a standard English dictionary I’d give them a higher rating.
Wwll - Great game ruined by ads
Please fix the ads. Just lately, it’s the Tim Horton’s ad that locks up…my only option is to restart my phone. On the verge of deleting this game. Shame.
Howmander - Too annoying
I got this years ago and loved it, thought it was a really fun relaxing little game, and the ads weren’t even that bad, but now they’re just getting obnoxious, at least 30 seconds long and even when they finish can make you wait up to another 15 seconds before the X appears to close it. I periodically stopped playing it because of this but then would pick it up again because I genuinely enjoyed the game, but the ads are just way too frustratingly long, which completely defeats the purpose of a relaxing game, and it’s absolutely not worth $10 to get rid of the ads, so do yourself a favour and don’t both downloading it unless you’re willing to spend $10 for it.
Memigo2 - Word scrapes
Mind challenging and fun
Lucho2011 - Addicting
Sharkmag - Ads ads ads... and more ads
Great game but way too many ads. After 10-15 levels you get ads every 2-3 rounds. Ridiculous. Removing game due to that.
EM___1979 - New ads are waaaay too long
Ads used to be short and could be closed after a few seconds, which was fine. Now I’m getting lengthy ads for multiple products tied into a single ad with no apparent way to close until the ad has played out. And they appear at the end of every level, which is far too frequent given that most levels can be blitzed thru within a minute or two.
Korinthenkacker - Last Update
Since your last update you have not allowed certain words that were previously accepted. Also being on level 6990 we should get more than 25 points as you go along. Needs some work to b able to enjoy the game.
