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.
Aslo White - Flawed but addicting
I admit that I’ve become obsessed with this game despite its flaws. It’s a great way to spend some mindless time. It would be so much better if it had a better and expanded vocabulary. As it is, it doesn’t accept many perfectly legitimate words. One of them is “aqua,” which is particularly ironic given that one of the levels is called “AQUA.” Other non-starters are ware, garret, and fest, along with many more that I could name. And oh, someone needs to tell the developers that CHILE is a proper noun—the name of a country—but CHILI is not. And that LITE is NOT a word!
The developers should consult a Scrabble dictionary — or any dictionary, for that matter. It would make for a MUCH better game if it just used Scrabble-approved words minus two-letter words. At least then there would be some rationale for why words are or are not accepted.
The other thing that detracts from the game is the fact that levels start to repeat—the same combinations of letters show up multiple times. But hey, for a game with literally thousands of levels, I guess that’s to be expected. There are also a lot of annoying pop-ups asking you for in-app purchases, although these are not necessary to keep playing. One of them — the “piggy bank” — purports to be a reward but is actually nothing more than another opportunity to buy stuff. Despite all this, it’s a relaxing, not-too-challenging time-waster that can provide a pleasant break if you’re into word games.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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 😂😂😂
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.
#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!
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Tiffmish - Love it, but..... 😬⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I love WordScapes but I have some issues, that I would you guys can fix in the next update. I play on an IPad and a IPhone. I have no problems on my IPhone, but instead my IPad. When I got on WordScapes on my IPad, my screen freezes and powers off, but that only happens on WordScapes. I tried almost everything I could think of, such as turning off and on, deleting the app, and restarting my IPad. It still does this problem. My friend plays on her IPad as well, and she doesn’t have a problem with it at all. Please fix this, I’m giving it a 5 star review because I love this game, when I’m on my iPhone, but please fix this problem for the next update, and please decrease the number of ads per minute. Oh and one more thing.... The game board can’t understand some English words that are English, and it’s really frustrating, and can you please fix some bugs and glitches for the next update? Thank you so much, and please text me back if you guys can! Thanks a lot! -
S.Couzens - Good but adds show better please respond to this
This is a very nice game with MANY ups and few downs. Though that is why I’m writing this, because of the downs. So first, I don’t see why there is not an easier way to get money besides finding extra words, which tray don’t give you very much money. A second reason I’m writing this is because in the adds it kinda says in different words that this game is a stress reliever, but of course, again, in different words. That’s the problem because sometimes you spend FOREVER trying to figure out JUST ONE word and have no money for a hint which can make you stressed. The third and final flaw to the game is how the adds say how this game makes you smarter but I really don’t see how it does that. So basically, in all, this is a fun game that I play slightly more than a lot of my others and I think it’s good for all ages!(Well, not ages 5 and under because they are kinda stupid and don’t know very many words lol😏)Thank you for this wonderful experience and I hope you make a few improvements. -Sam
tumblr saved me - Good game but...
Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me. I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed. She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb In the shape of an "L" on her forehead. Well, the years start coming and they don't stop coming
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running. Didn't make sense not to live for fun. Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb. So much to do, so much to see. So what's wrong with taking the backstreets? You'll never know if you don't go. You'll never shine if you don't glow. Hey now you're an All Star, get your game on, go play. Hey now you're a Rock Star, get the show on, get paid. And all that glitters is gold. Only shooting stars break the mold. It's a cool place, and they say it gets colder. You're bundled up now but wait 'til you get older. But the meteor men beg to differ. Judging by the hole in the satellite picture. The ice we skate is getting pretty thin. The water's getting warm so you might as well swim. My world's on fire, how about yours? That's the way I like it and I'll never get bored.
gillma2006 - It’s fine
I really think this game is addictive. It’s a great game but not the best. Honestly I like doing these crossword puzzle stuff. I don’t want to be rude but, there are some bad things about this game. One, too many bonus words. I think it makes the game more challenging because I would have to make a new word. I’m 11 and I don’t know every word in the world! I am on at least level 100. Mostly, when I find a simple word it’s a bonus word! I am not the best at finding new words. Sometimes there are words that I have to find which are words that I don’t know the meaning to. I even have to get my mom to do some of the levels for me! I feel like I am too old for that. All the words I know are just stupid bonus words! Two, when I watch an ad to get more coins, it advertises the same game! It keeps advertising Toon Blast! I feel like I am too old for that game! Please stop advertising Toon Blast all the time. I’m sure there are other great addictive games you can advertise. To be honest, I can get addicted to this game. Overall, great game.
peypeypuppylover22 - Soo amazing but...
This game is AMAZING!!! Great game. When I first got this game I didn’t use it often.I didn't give it a chance. But soon I started using it more and let me tell you, I got ADDICTED. There are very few big adds and a bunch of fun levels! Now I got my mom and dad hooked on it too! 😂 I think this app is great but some improvements could be made. First of all there should be more ways to get coins because if you loose all of them it takes weeks to get more. Secondly there are so many little adds at the bottom of the screen that can sometime block off parts of the game but I do understand that putting adds can help make more money for the app. Thirdly (this one isn’t a big one but here we go) I personally wish the background would change every level. Sometimes it gets boring looking at the same background all the time. Other than those few things app is amazing and I would like to thank the creator for making such an amazing app👍❤️🙂
MarieAnnet - Best of its kind!
There are several word formation games out there and I've tried quite a few. But this one stands out for me, in part for its ease of use when forming the words, and "backtracking" when you realize you're not spelling what you meant. Other apps don't let you undo the word as easily. The circular formation of the letters (rather than linear) also helps your eye find other word possibilities.
I find this game to be very addictive, and I marched through the first 22 levels (over 2000 games) in just a few weeks before having to wait for the most recent levels to be released. It’s a good way for some folks to build their vocabulary, I suppose, though some might find it frustrating for that same reason.
The only “complaint” I have is that the background scenery is sometimes too light to see the blank space for a letter. I’ve lost count of the times I was trying to make a three-letter word when it was actually four letters.
ZambotTheShadow - Fun but...
Update: This game was uninstalled at 7am. It is now 2:20pm and the game is STILL using my battery even though it is uninstalled. I haven’t been on my phone other than texting and somehow my phone dropped down to 54% when it was fully charged. So, naturally I look at my battery to see what’s causing to drop so low so fast and it says “uninstalled apps 54%”. I’ve only uninstalled one app today and that was this game this morning. Just warning everyone. DO NOT get this game if you want to save the battery life on your phone.
This is a really fun game but in ten minutes my battery dropped from 60% to 32% and my phone got extremely hot. I looked at how much of my battery the app was using and it said 92%!!!! This morning, when I haven’t been on it for over 8 hours, it is still somehow using 62% of my battery. All because I was on it TEN MINUTES last night. This game is obviously meant for iPads or tablets - not phones. It was fun but it shouldn’t do that to my phone in just ten minutes. Also, there were words that they said weren’t really words. Their dictionary needs to be expanded big time. How can this game be about dictionary words and you don’t even have half of them?
DO NOT DOWNLOAD‼️ - Fun and challenging
I like the simplicity of the game. Make words out of given letters. Words are simple everyday used words, not words that are hardly heard of. It allows you to use coins you earned to help you out if you are stuck. Every so often there’s tournament you can join and enjoy. It is not bombarded by different multiple activities that get you sidetracked from the original game; just enough to allow you opportunities to earn more money that you can use later to help you out. It beats the purpose of sharpening your brain by cheating and you really won’t need to if you play the way it should be played. It’s a “make you feel good” game as you level up. It makes you see how good you really are with words and along the way learn how to actually spell words by trying. Love that it’s not timed either (except for some tournaments you can opt out of playing). Kudos to the developer of the game. It was worth for me paying to take ads out!
BayGrace325 - What is this app?
I rate this app a 5. I haven’t gotten to the super difficult levels yet, but I thoroughly enjoy Wordscapes. This app has a lot of potential and is fun when you’re bored. I personally love these type of games, and look for good ones when I can. I recommend this game a lot, and hope you enjoy it too!
One thing I hope to be added is some more depth to the game. It is very fun, but needs a new outfit every once and a while. If you wear a hat for too long, it gets dirty and weary. Soon it will be worn out and used less. Games are the same way, and it needs some new decoration.
Maybe add more rewards, like creating and designing a character. Maybe this character could be used for mini games you win after every level. After every level you could get a ticket, and when you want you could spend the ticket on a mini game. It’s just a thought, not any force to have. Thanks for reading my review, and I hope you put it into consideration!
luvpiccollage - Great App, just one thing......
First of all, if you are reading this review, thank you for reading it and I hope you find it helpful! Ok, so this app is really great. I’m still going to keep my review 5 stars despite the one flaw I have. The app is great. It’s soothing, especially with the background of dew drops on leaves. It also gets your mind to really think. It makes your mind grow. You’ll find yourself on Level 1 struggling. And then on Level 4 breezing through the Level. One flaw though, is the ads. I’m not saying the amount of ads, I’m saying the type of ads. I’ll be relaxing, exercising my mind on a Level, then, a loud add will pop up. There is a repetitive add of the game Toon Blasts. The game is not at all like soothing WordScapes. It is loud and violent where you have to pop cubes. I’m not critizing the game, it’s a great game, it’s just not at all like WordScapes. Well, that’s it. Overall, amazing game. I highly recommend it.
cheaaalsea - Overall enjoyable
Overall I enjoy the game. It is a good way to pass time and work your brain muscles at the same time. Some levels are harder than others while some are super easy. Certain words that it accepts or doesn’t accept are sometimes confusing but eventually I figure them out. I like the option to reorganize the letters and look at it from a new perspective! It is really helpful sometimes when you get stuck for a while. The daily puzzles are the one of the only parts I get frustrated with because you only get the butterflies to collect stars for the pictures if you figure out the specific word in the column it is asking for at a time. If you figure a different one out, no butterfly. The ads would be my only other complaint. After every level, there is an ad. Which is very annoying. I began to see the same ad so many times for another game that I eventually downloaded it because I saw it so much I figured I might as well try it out.
Jenbroughton - From Best To Worst
This used to be one of my favorite games. With the latest update, they took away several known words to limit your ability to earn extra coins. This was done as yet another incentive to get you to pay for coins. You also have to go in and out of the app multiple times a day to get your “daily bonus.” I certainly understand wanting to make money, but features shouldn’t be taken away to do so. I truly hope this is rectified soon.
I received a notification indicating I’d received a response, but your reviews are in terrible order.
I saw another response stating all players have the same lists now. That’s great, now let’s add all of the words you removed to keep players from earning their own coins instead of having to buy them from you. I’ve already paid to upgrade to ad-free and have spent a decent amount of money on the app, but refuse to spend more. If the words are not added back soon, I will just delete the app, which is sad because it is my go-to daily app (even though I rarely get my “daily bonus”) and I truly enjoy the tournaments. There are other word games out there, it looks like it is time to find one.
Mattislegend86 - Money grab
The game is fun and free, so, it has that going for it. However, it's deeply flawed, at least in my opinion. Words like 'Asia' are not considered words - but 'dale' is considered a word? Okay, I can deal with that. But what I can't support is the obvious "give us your money" scheme. The game operates like a crossword puzzle, so, all of the words are connected to some degree - except the word at the very top that shows up every few levels. Since it's not connected (outside of the crossword), you have no guesses as to what any of the letters may be. So, once you've exhausted your vocabulary, you're still left with this one word before you can proceed to the next level. After spending 10+ minutes, you're tempted to use those valuable tokens you've earned just to get a hint. It's not as big of an issue in the earlier level tiers. However, once you've progressed far enough, it becomes ever more clear that this one word was placed here to convince you to buy more tokens. This breaks the game as you're compelled to use hints. If this were removed, the game would be a solid brain stimulant. But it creates an unfair advantage and the player is handicapped for the sake of greed. 1/5
emma_loves_cows - oddly calming
I don’t usually write reviews. In fact, anytime an app tells me to rate it I hit that X button so fast. But when the notification popped up on Wordscapes, I clicked it and here we are. It’s really fun and calming. I like to use it to relax before bed so I can sleep. It’s the perfect game for someone like me who can’t seem to shut their brain off. I like that this app takes my overthinking brain and uses it to ruminate over word options instead of daily anxieties. It helps me sleep better and I’m on level four hundred something. My friends make fun of me because I’m like 20 years old and playing vocab games instead of social media lol but I dont care; My whole family plays now too! There’s very few apps on my phone I use daily but I really like this one.
I really like the weekend tourneys and the daily puzzles, it’s nice to have the variation and a little competition ya know?
Imma go play the daily puzzle now
Giants Fan in AZ - Addicting!
I love the game and the tournaments. I do get exasperated at the same words being used over and over — an awful lot not spelled correctly — and then in the next gone guy don’t even get credit for the same words. But it’s fun and sometimes it’s amazing how long you can look at a word and not get it. I find it crazy that someone can get a crown with 10 points. In most tournaments you barely have to play to get 10 points. Let the people who are competing get the crowns! All in all, love the game.
UPDATE: Extremely disappointed that some ads now have sound. I dropped another game because of this. At the times I play, I often need quiet for the people around me, which means I can’t play. Other times I’m listening to a ball game and every time one of those stupid ads comes in, I have to get rid of it, then Re-start the sound for the game. It’s not worth it. If it happened once in a while it would not be so bad, but it’s every couple of minutes. Fix this issue please. The ads without sound are good enough!
you nicknam wil - Great game
I have been playing this game for a while now And I absolutely love it. The new team option lets me play with family members and all the puzzles help me expand my vocabulary but there is something I want to point out. Sometimes for the bonus words I find an extra word that uses 6 letters or 5 but still get the same 1 star that I get for a 3 letter word. It is kind of annoying so in my opinion I think that you should give a certain amount of stars depending on the amount of letters you used on your bonus word because I know it is not easy to win a tournament and you guys know that. I like challenges but it is still a little frustrating to get 1 star for each word you find. I also wouldn’t mind different ads because the same two ads are always popping up after almost every match. Still I am so glad I started playing this game. I totally recommend it.
phoebe_buffay - Battery Drain
This game is super fun. They use a terrible dictionary, know that before going down this rabbit hole. Very addicting game, such a blast to play. Also, sort of relaxing. HOWEVER——this is the WORST battery drain I have literally ever seen! Plus data sucker! A lot of the other poor reviews state the ads, which do become frequent, depending on the speed you play. There is an ad after Every. Single. Game. So, if you breeze through the game, there is an ad. You spend 30 seconds on the game then watch a 30 second commercial. And there are about 5 different ads they cycle through, that’s it. My biggest gripe, though, is how quickly this will drain your battery. It gets very warm, very fast. 20 minutes of playing (if you have a full battery) and it is hot! There is a tournament on the weekends, but you cannot play as often as you would like because of the instadrain. I can play this once or twice a day for a few minutes. I don’t like having to constantly watch the time and battery level while playing. So, so sad because I will most likely end up deleting.
Wordygirlie - Highly addictive!
I really enjoy this game, and have spent many hours playing. It’s beautifully designed and the crossword layout is an inspired addition for visual clues in finding the words. I also appreciate that the game isn’t timed, so I can do other things while I ponder my options. I do get frustrated, however, when words aren’t accepted that should be (among them: alar, alee, cant, coir, doge, ewer, fest, lei, lira, moa, nene, purl, roc, scree, steed, stet, tony, and trice). Sometimes the game accepts the singular but not the plural of a word (or vice versa)—isms but not ism, luge but not luges or luger. And I’ve occasionally had a word accepted that isn’t actually a word—baw, blar and poon—when I stopped in the middle of trying to spell something else. These aren’t terrible flaws, by any means, and I mention them only in hopes that the developer tweaks things to make an already great game even better. While they’re at it, maybe adding some explanation of “brilliance” points and other aspects of the game would also be beneficial. Enjoy!
Exinanition - Love this game!
I’ve been playing this game now for about a year. I play at random during the week just to keep in practice for the tournaments. I am not trying to brag, however, I’ve won every tournament I’ve had the time to play. Some tournaments I have not had a lot of competition. And in some tournaments I have been in the race for my life! There are some pretty brilliant people out there. Two weeks ago I hit my highest score ever with over 18,000 points. The lady who was competing against me for first place also ended the tournament with over 18,000 points! It was the most amazing thing I have seen in any of their tournaments so far. I do not know who the lady was, however, she gave me the most wonderful tournament I have ever played! Congratulations to her. I have read a lot of the reviews on here and I have read a lot of complaints. I honestly have to say I have no complaints whatsoever.
neostryder - What do you mean, “money grab”?
I have been playing this game for a few months now, and am pushing level 900. It boggles my mind to think that there are still easily 5 times that many levels ahead of me! Early on, I got sick of the ads and opted to shoot the developers a couple of bucks to remove the ads. To this day, that is all I have spent on it. For the price of an energy drink, which I buy and drink and it’s gone, I have been enjoying this almost daily for months. I can’t fathom the people who rate a game like this low, calling it a money grab! I rarely spend this much time with $60 console games! When you pick up your paycheck, does your boss think that it’s a money grab because you expect to be paid for your work? This game is very well-made, and very much deserving of the profit it generates for the people who spent thousands of hours developing something fun for you to play! Thank you, guys!
OkiFedora - Addictive, But Buggy and a Power Hog
Well designed from a game-play aspect. I enjoy word puzzles and this one is great. Good tutorial to introduce you to the game and new additions as you play through levels.
Two issues I have with it...
First, it’s a bit buggy. I get crashes once in a while that take me out of the game. Twice (over a few hours of play) it locked up and I had to close and restart the app. It’s not too often and it recovers quickly with no loss of play.
Secondly, it eats battery. Not a good app on the go if you don’t have constant power. My battery lasts all day with normal use, but while playing this game, I’m losing about 30% an hour. It might help to have an option to shut off game animations and background scenery animations, but there’s not an option currently.
The ads do get annoying, but the full cost of $2.99 solves that and I’m certainly not against an app maker getting paid. If you don’t like the ads, buy the game. (Tip: wait for a pop up during the game offering a special deal to get rid of the ads and get coins. It’s a pretty good deal.)
Overall, very fun and addictive game. If you’re ok with a few minor crashes once in a while, and you have a charger nearby, you’ll enjoy this.
Update: after paying to remove ads, the crashing has stopped and the battery draining is a bit less. I’m assuming the ads account for both. Changing from 3 to 4 stars.
Writerinfact - Good concept
Not so great execution. It’s bad enough that the “videos” one must watch in order to get points (coins?) to buy hints are anything but random (when I hit 20 consecutive views of the same obnoxious game, I quit counting), but to sit through one and tap to get another only to be told that there are no videos available is, well, adding insult to injury. I also question the validity of some of the words; I have played Scrabble for years and am accustomed to stricter rules than Wordscapes apparently applies. Fix the video issues and I may update the review.
Update: Video issues are, well, different. More instances of “no video available” and (new one) after video, screen freezes BEFORE awarding coins, and game must be exited in order to unfreeze, losing earned coins. Plus, you have to open a different app before coming back to try again to earn coins. Sometimes you get a video before getting “no video available” and sometimes you don’t. Sorry, the issues outweigh the “pleasure” of playing this game. At level 512, I will not be playing any more.
Erameline - Increase Rewards
Look, I know you guys want people to buy coins, but as long as there are websites that solve anagrams you’re not getting any money from me (aside from the $3 or whatever to never show ads again— that was well worth it for my sanity). But sometimes I’m too lazy to flip over to a new browser tab, right, so I want to use some coins. The problem is that the way you earn said coins is impossibly slow, and the items you use them on are way too expensive. The solution? Add more weight to harder words. If a word announces “great!” or “excellent!” when I get it, maybe it should be worth two or three stars. Or maybe the higher the level, the more weight to the words. Not even just for the sake of coins, but maybe to let me feel like I’ve accomplished something after being 1000+ games in.
Other than that, relentlessly addicting and great at making me feel like a dang idiot when my brain just refuses to cooperate. Four stars.
KalosKagathos - Absolutely beautiful game!
I won’t repeat everything so many have said, except to say that, in terms of overall design and graphics, Wordscapes is truly the most aesthetically pleasing game to play. The background images are simply spectacular. I only wish—and this is my 1st suggestion—that we players could somehow copy or download them (even if it meant paying a small fee for them!).
The only reason I give the game 4 stars is b/c—and this is my 2nd suggestion—I really wish the puzzles became significantly more challenging, say, at least when you reach the really high levels. (As of this writing, I’ve finished all levels.) In other words, there are some very dedicated players who will keep finishing all the levels fairly quickly as new levels are (slowly!) added, so it would help to add levels that take significantly longer to finish. Hope that makes sense.
Fyi, I nonetheless see my rating as a 4.8. :-) This is a must-have word game for sure!
KritterKLU - Addictive and frustrating
Players are given a set of letters with which they are supposed to fill in the crossword squares. There are multiple sets per level and each level gets more difficult as letters are added (level one starts with three letters, the next level four letters, and so on). It’s a good game for working your brain but at the same time is relaxing due to there not being a time limit on how long you take finishing the crossword. It’s quite addictive.
My one complaint is about the “coins” rewarded. Coins are earned from creating bonus words that are not on the crossword and by finishing an entire level. They can be used to “purchase” hints, which cost 100 coins each. At the rate coins can be earned, that’s a pretty steep price. I’d like to see the coin value increase along with the difficulty level. As it is, I feel like I’m being pressured to actually spend money on virtual coins just so I can get a hint when I get stuck. I’d rather delete my “free” game than repeatedly spend real money for hints.
Cputz - Could be addicting if...
I love word games and downloaded this game because of the high reviews. The game itself is a great game. Challenging, but not to the point where you want to give up. I love the backgrounds. They change with every level you advance. If I were to rate the game alone, it would probably get 4-5 stars.
The developers did a great job with the game itself, but they allow way too many ads. Expect to see an ad every time you open the game and before playing a puzzle. Ads are so frequent that it is extremely difficult to keep your focus and concentration from one puzzle to the next. On the FAQ page, the developers say that it costs a lot of money to develop the game, which is why there are ads. I understand that, but I’ve never seen a game with so many ads. I could remove ads by paying $2.99, but why do that when there are other word games that have less ads and cost less to remove the ads? The developers need to come up with a better balance of game time and ads.
notrich63 - Nice With Faults
Really enjoyed this game so I purchased to get rid of the ads (not cheap as game apps go). However there are still pop-up in-game ads to buy tokens and such. An ad is an ad, so you’re not getting an entirely ad free game here. Also, they’ve not kept up the supply of games (ie. ran out of puzzles, tiles, etc.) so until they decide to replenish with more this app is just taking up space. If this were a .99 cent game there wouldn’t be much to complain about because the game works fine and is crash free.
UPDATE Feb 2020
The developers fixed the issue with running out of games/tiles, but now it has a bug that burns a 300 point rocket clue sporadically and unprompted. I’ve had this occur several times, and have contacted the developer about it. First they said they were working on it. When it happened again several updates later they ignored my inquiry altogether. It takes many hours to accumulate 300 points and for those of us who are power players those 300 points are valuable. If losing hard earned points doesn’t matter then buy the game.
tamon14 - EDITED: Now 1 Star
I loved this game when I first found it! It was one of the few games I have where I left the free version and chose to pay because it was so much fun. Then I updated to the latest version and it’s awful. It reminds me of the free, ad-laden one. Too many pop ups asking if you want to pay for bees, too many things that fill in letters for you, etc. It’s way too cluttered now. Give us the option to turn those off since we already paid for the game. I’m never going to pay for the bees, so at least let me disable that. It’s yet another example of them trying to “fix” something that wasn’t broken.
EDIT: I came back to change my review to 1 star. It was a great game so after trying the demo I purchased it to get rid of the annoying popups. Well, after a few updates I’m getting popups again. The ads we’re just replaced with offers to buy “help”. A popup is a popup. I’m NEVER buying “Tips”, but I can’t disable that, even though it’s the PAID version. Move on to something that doesn’t keep asking for your money with popups AFTER you bought the paid version to get rid of them.

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! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
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.
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
:-/ !-) —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.
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!😇
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.
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.
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!
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.
What ATM? - Update 1.0.62 still has shut-down problems.
Around 6 May 2019
Since last update app keeps shutting down after individual games in each level and after accessing Tournament score. These problems were not occurring before latest update.
Mon 20 May 2019
Shut down problems that started after previous update still remain after 1.0.62 update. Using iOS 12.2 on Apple iPad Pro.
See level WALL Tower levels 3809 to 3824.
3809 first screen. Daily puzzle done. Shut down. Reopen.
Levels 3809, 3810 done. Shut down. Reopen.
Levels 3811, 3812, 3813 done. Shut down. Reopen.
Levels 3814, 3815, 3816 done. Shut down. Reopen.
Levels 3817, 3818, 3819 done. Shut down. Reopen.
Levels 3820, 3821, 3822 done. Shut down. Reopen.
Levels 3823, 3824 done. End of level.
In Chisel levels 3793 to 3808 shut downs occurred after levels 3795, 3797, 3801 and 3803. Shut downs seem to be occurring regularly after screens 3 and 8 then also in other screens in other levels.
Hope this provides you with enough specific information to track down and fix this annoying problem.
These shut down problems only started occurring after the update released in early May. I had not experienced them previously on this iPad.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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 .
notablockhead - Tournament troubles
I love this game but recently it's been freezing me out. Today I am locked out of the tournament. Very frustrating. why is there is no tournament on my iPad but there is one running on my phone. This is the second time this occurred. I'm not bothered about synching but I would like to play the tournament on the iPad since the phone app is not working. Great. I just reloaded as advised in the forum and I have lost everything. Back to level one and the tournament is gone. I'm not a fan anymore. Good bye Wordscapes.
qwesardftxz - I love it!
I’ve seen a lot of reviews about how the app is very repetitive, but nonetheless I’m loving it! There are 4800 levels to complete. I love how you have to progress through different levels and then you reach different areas (e.g the ocean area or the forest area). All of the areas have different backgrounds and some of them have moving features. I’m ADDICTED to this app and I can’t get off it! It is such a well made game and is very enjoyable to play. Definitely recommend this app.
Evie0727 - Ads = Epilepsy
All the flashing ads are a continuous deterrent towards using this app.
It’s super beautiful, the music is pretty good as it’s the same throughout, the pictures are stunning and make me want to be in them.
The adverts are a necessity unless you buy them away which I’m not going to waste my money on. The flashing ads are so irritating it makes me want to delete the app more often than not. Then I remember I’ve almost completed 1000 levels. So I turn off my wifi but then can’t compete in the tournaments. Just have non-flashing ads! Please!
Madge2170 - Not bad
The game itself is good but the star tournaments are a complete waste of time for the few points you get you have to watch the same videos time after time between games and they go for about 30 seconds each and mostly the same video every time and to make it worse the game they are advertising I already have so you waste about half the time in watching them and not much reward. Better to just do the normal game without the wifi and only turn it on to watch videos when you want points much quicker and more rewarding.
D3p5y - AMAZING!! 🤪😍
OMG THIS GAME IS AMAZING!!!!!! Okay, first of all, this helps out my brain to get quicker at solving!! It is such an amazing app! When i first got it, i knew this would help me out a lot. At the start, i didn’t even know this app was here! I was searching on the App Store for like 10-20 minutes! Then i found this then i knew this would be amazing!!
Thank you to whoever is reading this. You took your time to read this review.
-NOTE- If you haven’t got this app, DOWNLOAD IT RIGHT NOW!!
Thank You For Reading! ❤️💘
bronros - Very addictive and lovely to look at
As a former QatQi addict, this is the only other word game that has got me hooked. I paid $4.95 to remove the annoying ads and have not needed to pay anything extra to work through the many levels as I earn enough coins to pay for the occasional clue when I get stuck. I wish this game had a leaderboard, as QatQi did, just for that extra competing element and to see how you rate within your state/country/worldwide.
Michelle Williamson - TOO MANY ADS! Love the app - but far too many ads
Really enjoy this app. Great for the whole family. But surely there must be a better way for you to have to make money out of it than the ads you play every single puzzles!
Particularly that R6 Digital it goes far to long and having it play back to back just makes me NOT want to know anything about their company. It’s actually having the opposite effect an add should have. Just some feedback as I love your app but these ads need to be addressed and limited.
The ads go for FAR TOO LONG! Same long ads! Not a good reflection on your app or enjoyable experience for anyone!
KelseyRosePlays - Amazing
Wordscapes is an amazing word game I love how it gives you nice words as you achieve a new words it also allows you after a curtain amount of levels you have you can unlock the power to make a team also edit it but the only down side to this is that it showed your email or phone number but I am pretty sure that bad stage passed other than that I recon it is a nice game you should definitely check put
PetesPloota - Awesome
This game is THE BEST. I have had this game for a couple of months now and it’s the best game. If you want to chill, relax, have some quiet me time or while away the time waiting for an appointment or waiting for a bus.
The levels start off easy but get challenging as you progress.
The ads were a little annoying at first but after a while I thought, stuff it. This game is worth the few dollars to remove the ads.
Well done to the developers. AAA Plus
Norton from Oz - STUPID HINT BUTTON PLACEMENT!!
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.
Sexy ok - Excellent Game
I love this game it pushes my brain to think it's quite challenging my husband and I both love it we compete against each other. I've discovered new words I'd never heard of, just another extension of my vocabulary. I highly recommend it to anyone & everyone I've downloaded this game to my phone and my iPad I play it on my way to work and during my break and on my way home and when I wake up and before I go to bed it's highly addictive. THANK YOU TO THE CREATOR AWESOME JOB!!
Arrexxion04 - word Scapes
There are people out there with problems. One of them is memory lost. Memory lost is when you are a forgetful person which means that you don’t remember anything or worst anyone. Your brain is malfunctioned so you can’t think straight or spell straight. This game is a really good mindful, helping game for those out there with this horrible problem that might be permanent just like a sharpy. Thank You so much
Susie_84_linkin - BEST GAME IN THE WORLD!!!!
Initially started this out of boredom but now I’m obsessed lol paid version without ads is worth it in my opinion if you play a lot cos the ads were annoying. Love the challenges each weekend too. Still haven’t reached anywhere near top level after playing for ages so I’m impressed!! Also good just to train your brain and when you don’t have internet but need something to do. Love it and defs recommend - it’s so fun and addictive!!!
kk love bottle flip - Great game
This is a great game and it works with no internet which is good. I love how you can join different teams and you can chat and help each other and give them hints. This game is super fun and relaxing. It will also make you smarter with English and you can learn new words that you did not even know existed. It is kinda educational and fun at the same time. It will also improve your vocabulary. Download now and you wont regret it.
GreyGranny - Still a favourite!
This is a great app. If you can stand the following, go for it!
1) simple words are not included, like ‘espy’ or ‘nee’, and although the spelling includes international variations. Sometimes the main word is spelled in US English, something to consider when you can’t figure it out
2) your iPad screen HAS to be portrait. Why hasn’t this been fixed? It’s silly.
3) weekend competitions run over 50 hours, that’s a long time to play...about 15 hours too long!
4) the in app messaging to teams is dumb and won’t accept simple everyday words that are NOT swear words, and substitutes asterisks instead. 🤦🏻♀️ makes messaging slow and repetitive.
It’d be nice if the app allowed team members to chat away from main team chats separately. There’s plenty of game apps that already allow this.
Otherwise recommended highly.
tangyspongecake - Amazing!!
I rate this a five star because it brings up so many challenges. I hope it helps me in school. A great thing about this app is that if you don’t know the meaning of a word, you can just tap it and it defines it for you. Me and Mum sit down and she gives me hints if I don’t know a word. Love this app. Usually dad says study and stop playing games, but ever since I downloaded this app he was happy and that makes me happy. Keep up the work!
AbiM1997 - Haven’t been able to play for weeks due to crashing!
I started playing this game a couple of weeks ago and got up to over level 200 in just a couple of days. It was thoroughly entertaining and addictive to play, and I even happily spent roughly $10 on coins. But suddenly I can’t play anymore because the app keeps crashing on opening! The orange “people fun” screen appears, but the whole game crashes and exits seconds later! Very disappointed considering I’d only played for a few days and spent money that is now a waste! Please fix this issue. Currently running on latest app version, and running on an iPad iOS 12.0.1
Sylvia and Ken - Wordscapes
I love this app and what I particularly like is that many games can be done quite quickly so it’s ideal if you have only a few minutes to spare off and on through the day/night. I can’t believe how easy it is to get stuck on the last word only to eventually find that it is a common word and has been staring you in the face the whole time. Very enjoyable word game.
Bl0ssomjb - Sleazy, inappropriate ad forced me to delete this game
An ad for a sleazy and soft porn game called Choices cane up while I was playing this otherwise well constructed and useful game. I was even planning to download it for a seven year old in my family until this appallingly inappropriate content invaded my screen. I would otherwise enjoy this game and without this worrying intrusion into our children’s space would have got it for the family. Other game producers manage to get by without shovelling sexist and sleazy content, why can’t this game protect young players? You even have a logo for family sharing that includes little children in the graphic. How dare you?
keels45 - Good game
Needs more coins as winnings so you can use clues more as some words are incredibly difficult to find.
Also sometimes feels like you do a word and it doesn’t go in a spot but do it again later in the same round and it works??
Also some of the most obvious words aren’t included in the levels and you get them as bonus words. But why, as they are so obvious!
Shrednaught - Too many advertisements
Fantastic game ruined by too many ads. I understand that free to play requires advertising in order to make a profit but I feel like this is over the top. Every second game there is 2 ads for other games and also advertisements down the bottom.
Also timed ads so you cannot skip through them until the timer allows.
Like I said previously, I understand that free games require advertising and generally it doesn’t bother me.. but this is over the top.
three random words - Good Scrabble practice
I’m in training to consistently beat my boyfriend at Scrabble and Wordscapes has been a good tool. There are a few games like it on the App Store but this one seems to have the most reliable dictionary, although there are some weird omissions and inclusions sometimes. I like that you can look words up in their in-app dictionary if you come across something weird or unfamiliar.
oldmatedad - Nice game, shame about the battery cost
This is a relatively simple but engaging game, and I really enjoyed playing it. What I did not enjoy however was how quickly the game drained my battery, which I was a little surprised by, as the game is quite simple, and you wouldn’t think you battery would drain that quick. But this game shows an ad after every puzzle solved. And it shows a banner ad as you play. This is only really half game half advertisement. It’s a shame, the game part is quite good.
RyanThomo - A worthwhile word game
This is an enjoyable app that makes word games fun. Wordscapes and Vocabulary Genius have become my two most used apps. My brain works the puzzles at a faster rate then I would have thought possible which I attribute to the simple and effective design. Plenty of words and levels to play with sounds and animations that keep me entertained. Would recommend.

Elaine M. Chartier - Canadian Gal
I love the challenge.
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!!

The coins you earn for solving puzzles and could potentially use for hints are put into a bank that you cannot access unless you pay 3$. Completely ridiculous.

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.
Alias_mclee - Challenging game
Great use of iPhone and time well spent
emby - Developers need a dictionary
This is a slick game with beautiful pictures and graphics and it’s super easy to get into. However, it’s one of the stingiest games for recognizing words and allotting coins. Some puzzles allow 3-letter words but many do not and this is clearly to limit the coins you can build up with bonus words.
In addition, the long list of dictionary words that are not recognized as words is the most frustrating part, especially when it allows singular words but not their plurals, or vice versa, or words like uncouth but not couth. Many words related to fabrics and textiles are missing (jean, raglan, terry, ruche, slub, hank). And other words as varied as luxe, firth, spelt, pronto, ware, lade, trues (and so many more) are all missing. But then they’ll throw in the most random esoteric or archaic word just to mess with you. No consistency. Vocab has been the biggest deal breaker for me. I refuse to be dumbed down and I feel bad for people using this for vocabulary building.
An excellent alternative game: WORDS OF WONDERS - so easy to build up your coins, actually learn new words, AND they tell you where every picture is on your journey.
Dutchluvcheese - Edam
Level 78, Edam is a word, it’s a type of cheese
ashleyannenurse - Fun but lots of issues
Fun in theory but there are a number of issues that others have mentioned.
1) words that ARE WORDS do not show up as words. Or words in singular form are not words but then the plural form is. Not at all consistent and should be fixed.
2) TONS OF LONG COMMERCIALS/ADS after nearly every puzzle
3) the game kicks me out/shorts out VERY FREQUENTLY
Hedwig1593 - Keeps crashing
I’ve been enjoying this game immensely, however now that I’m up to 2800, the game continuously crashes which is extremely frustrating. Wish I knew how to rectify it!
😬yeesh - Battery drain
iPhone 7 in great condition. This game drains the battery from a full charge in a little over 30 minutes. What’s it doing in the background? Mining bitcoin? I don’t trust this. Deleted app and suggest you do the same. Something weird with this one.

LadyBereness (SUDAN) - So far, I enjoy!
I’m assuming as you level up each puzzle will become more challenging. Great for Great Grandmothers such as myself. I believe it’s great to keep our mind sharp and for younger players it will help them with correct spelling as wr as learning new vocabulary words! Please excuse any typos. I have Multiple Sclerosis and totally blind in my left eye. I play this on my phone so it’s been fun. Just worried as zi ho along if the letters become too small it may be hard for me to see. I’ll have to see if I can also play on my IPad without having to start over. My apologies for such a lengthy post. Have fun with this; keep your mind sharp, share with any little ones learning to spell & discovering new words! Even young adults can benefit as this is just another fun way to keeping your brain active. I’ve learned over the years, that old saying remains true: “If you don’t use it you’ll lose it” ❣️

My mom isn’t vulnerable, she rarely EVER visits the App Store. But she’s really good at finding words and stuff with words. She found this game, it somehow bonded our family..she had me on it and we were figuring out these together, of course now she’s on lvl 400+ lol not joking. Then my dad started playing, now we can relate to something!!! And it doesn’t end there!! I can also relate to friends that secretly play it(eh not the bast move to tell the whole school that you play a word game) all of us have something to relate to. But I think that if the devs of this game would make a word search out of it like Wordscapes then my fam and friends would have a lot more to talk about..Let’s just say that my friend and mom is OBSESSED with word searches it get annoying after a time =.= Just consider it, I know making an app is hard but it’s totally worth it
SnappyDragons - Nice game anytime
I enjoy playing Wordscapes when I want to relax a bit. I'm a word nerd and this has by FAR been the most solid word database of any word game I have played. I like that the words are for the most part common English -- no obscure three letter words that require costly hints. Plus, if you enter a word that isn't in the puzzle, you get bonus points. I like that! The puzzle progress is kept, even if I don't open the app for several weeks, which makes this a good one for casual play. Very nice background images during gameplay, too. I like the daily puzzle, which I can challenge real world friends to complete the fastest. The only thing odd that I've encountered (non-issue, really), is that I have no idea what Brilliance does besides measure game progress, which I would think Level would do equally well. *shrug* No big deal, as Wordscapes is still quite enjoyable.
Rubee Dee - Daily Puzzle
Please work on the daily puzzle. It is not skill based but rather guess based. As an example, the butterfly is in the first letter of a 4 letter word. Looking at the letters it could be rear, rare, bare, bear. Again, that makes this a guessing game. It makes it highly annoying when the goal of the daily puzzle is to achieve the three stars. As for the rest of the game, I believe others have touched on the main issues. Abbreviated words or slang. Also, some bonus words are not bonus words or puzzle words. Yet are legitimate words that would be bonus or puzzle words in a different level. Finally, why do you run the word contest on the weekend? I mean, I think I know why. However, why not have challenges during the week. This game is for passing the time. Weekends are not for sitting on your phone trying to add a few coins to your collection. Overall, game is great and fun. Just needs a little love to be a bit better.
Bugs need correcting - Love it, but a few discouraging bugs
This game is highly additive, but I must say it has a few bugs that make me put my phone down. In order to gain points you have a few choices. You can watch videos, check out offers or surveys. VERY often when I go to watch videos, I get told the videos aren’t available. And today something happened that caused me to write this review. I had watched a series of videos cause I wanted 300 points. I had about 290 points and watch another video which should have put me over 300. Instead my points went DOWN to 9. It really frustrated me. Additionally I’ve watched “offers” and after filling out page after page, and reaching the confirmation page (not sure what it’s called), I didn’t receive any points. I only used the survey once because I took the survey and the survey just kept repeating itself. I don’t even bother with surveys. The game is enjoyable and it makes me stretch my brain, now if only these bugs were fixed...
ilovecookiesandroblox5392 - Great game!
I love this game and it is my favourite game that I have on this device and the most relaxing game that I have ever played other than wordscapes in bloom ( which I like more because I love flowers) that you creators have made too. But I have something to say: whenever I try and get more coins this usually happens: it says there is no ad available. Then, AS SOON AS I HEAD TO THE HOME, an ad comes and there are ads everywhere! It also happens whenever you click a button. Like, if you are trying to go to daily puzzles it happens. Also whenever your getting bored and you want to go to another word game and then come back, an ad ALWAYS comes! Other than that, this is my look up to word game and I hope you guys will fix the ads and if you guys did, I would happily rate this 6 stars ( if I could because you cannot). But like I said, I just love this game! 😊😊
Dylan😁 - Super fun and no so many ads
Ads has been something I can deal with in general but even if you get easily annoyed by them, this game doesn’t completely spam you with them. It’s also just a really really entertaining game full of hours of content to test your brain. Last thing I have to say is that the disctionary feature is the most amazing part of this game: it gives you the definition and examples of every word used in a puzzle, and even for words that you found that weren’t even in the puzzle, so whenever you fill in a word that you didn’t know you can educate yourself a little (as long as you’re connected to the internet).
The music is super relaxing too, and I love the ascending/descending notes when you you hold and let go to letters.
Overall just a great game, would 100% recommend, I love it so much.
Reader by flashlight - What is with the coins that can not be used?
Were we looking for a relaxing word play and this seemed to fit the bill until they throw spinning wheels and coins across the screen as if at a casino. They add insult by not explaining the purpose of the coins or how they may be used and when we put the app down for an hour we found that 300 "coins" were removed from the cart and the depletion continued even when we started playing again as if being punished for having lunch. Apparently this app has some opinions.
Developers, please loose the coins, as they have no real purpose and remove the 1-minute long ads after every puzzle, not the series of puzzles rather 1-minute ads after a each puzzle.
You shouldn't be removing coins or adding coins when they can never be used. This cheapens who you are and you need to reconsider your motives. You appear as tricksters. Loose the coins, or explain their purpose and do not remove them even if someone has to go to work.
Billy574 - App by non-native English speaker
It’s clear that the person that developed this app isn’t a native English speaker. Many real English words are omitted, sometimes plurals, singulars, or past participles of other words that ARE accepted, or standard British spellings of the same American English words. Also, they accept words that are proper nouns, which shouldn’t be accepted in a word puzzle.
As others have said, once you get to higher levels, they use very similar letter combinations as earlier levels, so it’s no longer challenging. Also, they obviously gave up on naming the levels as they repeat level names over and over. Why not go to 8 letters with a minimum of 5 letter words for higher levels? Instead you’re perpetually stuck at 6/3 or 7/4.
The ads are probably only overly obnoxious if you finish levels quickly, which after playing awhile you do, so you’re forced to watch an ad every few seconds (luckily they’ve recently cut the ad times so it doesn’t take 30 seconds to watch).
Great concept, poor implementation.
Momma~B - Fun, easy, challenging
This game is relaxing, fun and just challenging enough sometimes to get your brain thinking! I like being able to keep my mind active and still relax. The challenge is nice, I figure out a new word once in a while, and really have to think about a few of these! Haha
I have 5 kids, two of which are 4 years old! So, I feel like this helps keep my brain from turning into a pool of toddler words and alphabets! 5 mins here, a quick game there and I feel like I get to exercise my brain a little. I need to find more of these, maybe a nice math one too!
Thanks to the person who thought of this game. Also, I love the relaxing background pictures nice touch! Sorry if there are type Os, I am writing this while trying to drink morning coffee with toddlers trying to scare me because it was Halloween last night... haha mom life!
FarmGirl!!! - Mostly good
Had this game for about a year and a half. Paid for no Ads. The coins/ prizes they give are low compared to other games I have in comparison to what the hints cost. You can opt to watch an ad (when available) for .25 in coins. A random hint cost 100 coins. Otherwise you earn 1 coin for any extra word(s) you may find in a puzzle.
The weekend tournaments are fun and you seem to be paired with others around your level. I only say this as a guess bc I checked out hubby’s status and all the players were different on his game and he is at a much lower level than I am. However they have just lowered the prize by half!!!
They do recycle the puzzles which may be boring for someone with a better memory than myself. I just remember I had a hard time with the puzzle, not the answer 😆
Support may be iffy for you. I had a very minor problem and wrote to them. Got an immediate reply saying they had got it and “ would be back in touch with me” that was at least 3 weeks ago.
The word base is pretty good but not awesome. This coming from somewhat of a book nerd. Hubby was perplexed by roan, dun, gaol and wondered what the flip a gnu was 😂 some of the omitted words are puzzling why have baa, moo, click but not oink as a silly example.
All in all it is pretty good and I enjoy it some of the changes have not been for the better imho though.
Meep 🤭 - Horrible Game
I have just found out that this game is switching lots of the prices. I got remove ads and I still get ads. I am deleting this game and never playing it again. When my friend played with me she bought it and got no ads. The next day she had ads. They are literally stealing money. This game needs to top. I can’t believe people love this game. It’s stealing money. Don’t ever buy anything in tho game. It will cheat you off. If you are a person about to download this, please do not buy anything. Please tell your kids to not buy anything. This game is horrible. Same thing with all the others this creator made. Such a bad influence to kids that may want to make a word game some day. Kids still play this everyday and parents by them no ads. I emailed them too. In some other reviews I saw that the emailed them for technical difficulties. Really they aren’t. They are those rude people out there that made this game and are stealing money. Do not get this game no matter what. I will write a new review when they fix this. Give us refunds. This game is the WORST game in history.
natebrown11 - Will NOT allow you to remove ads with in-game currency, as advertised
Upon starting the game, it is advertised that you can remove ads with 400 coins (in-game currency). These coins are rewarded to the player by completing the game’s puzzles. This offer is said to last for 24 hours. I accumulated 400 coins within 2 hours of downloading the app and after completing the puzzle that pushed my coin count over 400, the game rewarded me with an unskippable ad that would not go away on its own. This forced me to close out of the app and when I re-entered the app the ability to remove the ads with coins was removed and required a cash purchase to remove ads. The unskippable ad did not occur until the exact point that I was able to remove ads without purchase. This is obviously a pre-programmed response so players can not remove the ads without paying real money (which is fine if advertised that way, but this was not the case). This is textbook false advertising and everyone should be warned that this app producer will do the same to you. Don’t waste your time.
wroxi - Annoying ads-real words not recognized
The ads were so frequent that I did decide to pay the $2.99 to get rid of them, as I was enjoying the game. As I neared level 700, I noticed that the same letters have been used in multiple levels which isn’t very challenging. I have also noticed that there are NUMEROUS VERY COMMON English words which are not recognized by the game. Clearly, developers, you need to go back to the drawing board. It’s very easy to find word unscrambler resources on the Internet. Why not use those to help build a larger database of words that the game will recognize? It’s VERY frustrating when you know the word is a real English word and you are not rewarded for it! Here are some examples: Ware, coir, creel, rebar, barer, scry, quire, torc, terce, lee, purl, farfel etc. etc etc.. I would not recommend this game for somebody who has a large vocabulary to begin with as it is more frustrating than challenging. Probably better for someone whose vocabulary could use strengthening.
unicornlovergurrrlll - Omg wth lol AWESOME APP!!!
So I was bored one day and had nothing to do then I thought of this apps ad I was like I always wanted it let me see if it is fun I got it played for a long time and I learned words I never knew were real! I have played for about a month now and when it comes to the bonus word on the spelling test I get it 10 extra points for me! I recommend this to all students due to the coronavirus ur school is probably shut down so is mine but I do this app like my own everyday spelling test it teaches you with out you even knowing it is comforting,relaxing, fun, enjoyable and has NO glitches I am a big reader and didn’t think I would like this but I did after all I have done a spelling bee before and figured if it is like a spelling bee or a really hard big thick book then I may not like it but it was incredible!
Girl With The Bandaid Tattoo - Make the tournament more fair please
The tournaments should be either 48 hours or 72 hours, but nothing in between. The reason for this is that depending on where you live, you get more or less time to play. For example, I live in Europe, and the tournament has not even begun when I go to bed on Fridays at midnight. That means I only get to play Saturday and Sunday, and when I go to bed at midnight on Sunday, the tournament is still going on, so I drop from first or second place while I’m sleeping. And that means I will never be able to win unless I decide to stay up the entire night, which is ridiculous. I also have fewer hours to play. In the United States, for example, they get to play Friday evening, all day Saturday, and all day Sunday, while we in Europe only get to play Saturday and Sunday. So making the tournaments and even 48 hours, or 72 hours, would mean that everyone would get equal time to play.
FantomMmMmMmM - Brain Game
So good for the brain. Helps you concentrate on trying to put together a word that’s scrambled letters. My grandmother and my mother i’ve been playing it for months now and they are vocabulary is much better and her memory is amazing. This is a lifesaver/saving game. A 100% thing that every person who owns a phone with the app location downloader, should download this game. Every person can benefit from this. Starts easy and it gets harder and harder as you keep winning. This has been the most exciting game I’ve ever played. When I’m bored and have a break I can play it. When I’m flying I play on the airplanes. I got my cousin into it and now he’s hooked. I think he’s on level 284. I’ve never found a game as good as this. It’s outstanding and truly a miracle for other people who are in dire need of picking up their vocabulary.
Hojiman - Great but could be better
It’s fun and it’s easily the biggest time sink on my phone. It’s interesting how you can get stumped, put the phone down for an hour or two, and then immediately see the answer when you go back to it. But...
1) the dictionary is my main issue as it contains all sorts of slang (eg “fro” and “tech”) but omits actual words that are more archaic (eg no “greave” for you armorers). Or the omissions are simply haphazard: it contains “Mayan” but not “Greek” — why? Considering all the work that went into this app, there little rationale behind constraining the dictionary so much.
2) it doesn’t get “harder” and it doesn’t care how hard the words are — only how many you solve. “The” and “see” count just as much as “divest” and “collage”. That’s a very simple change to make — toss a difficulty rating on each word and poof! Much more interesting game.
TLDR: buy it since it’s fun.
Devs: see above. Take it up a notch.
D Frey - Fun but BATTERY HOG
Updated Review: the further you progress in this game, the more you realize that they use the same words over and over and over in these puzzles. It gets to where the puzzles that should be challenging really aren’t that hard, because you’ve memorized the whole population of words they’ve used.
And they still haven’t fixed the issue with bonus/extra words. These are words that aren’t in the puzzle, but you get credit (coins) for them because they’re real words that can be formed from the given group of letters. Problem is, some real words count, and some don’t. That’s STUPID and ANNOYING. Either give credit for real words or don’t. Clearly, the reason for this is that if they give you too many coins, you won’t buy as many coins through in-app purchases. So they’ve made the game stupid in order to maximize revenue. That’s lame.
The game itself is great. Challenging after the early levels. It’s pretty frustrating that a lot of actual words aren’t allowed as extra words. That needs to get fixed pronto. But the biggest irritation is the battery drain this game causes. Get on that, devs.
I see a lot of griping about ads. If you don’t like them, just pay for the ad free version. I did. It’s not expensive. Less than a latte or a beer, and will last you a thousand times longer.
🏝b e a c h ' s t a r🏝 - Nice. 👏🏼👏🏾
My whole family loves this app. It grows your mind. My dad has never used a hint. My papa uses the expensive stuff but is on level 900. I am not the master of words and don’t fit in my father’s footsteps into that direction, but I do like Word Scapes. It is an excellent app, preforms well, and as I said before, it grows your mind and brilliance. Although, I do find that it has too many ads. And make the coins easier to earn. As I said, my dad has never used a hint, and is above level 1000. But he only has 4,000 coins (approximately) which isn’t a lot. You earn about 2-5 coins a level, which is upsetting. Other than these problems, Word Scapes has done me well. I am not a bot or computer or something. This is a real review. Alright, thanks for reading this. Hopefully after reading my review you will download the app.
Hart bunt - Perks
This game is really great I can play it for 6 hours strait and this game may be almost perfect over spring break + or - a few weeks but almost every time I get close to a letter I have already selected it erases it all and makes me for get what I am spelling plus I think it should let you reuse already selected letters ( if it does on later on levels I will take it back ) but other than the perks like having to use 100 coins for one letter hint seems unreasonable or having an extra words slot it is a great game I will play it a lot btw every women on my moms side of the fam plays the grandma mom and me my grandma is on level 2,600 something she is also retired so she has no length of free time 😁 my mom is on level 200 something and I started today and I am on level 20 something and as you can see I don’t know the exact numbers so 🙃have a nice day and thank you for reading 📖
LantzHolloman - Great time killer fun too play
This is a great time killer for me and has slowly increased my vocabulary!!!! Removing the ads is almost a must do if you want to have fun and play the game, but it is still playable with the ads. The levels are decently challenging some easier than others but with thousands of levels spending $3 to remove the ads is definitely worth it for the time you will put into the game. I love the fact that there are tournaments that if you do the best you get rewarded so it gives you a reason to play more than one or two rounds every now and then. Only I was let down about was there is no tracking system for Facebook/Gamecenter friends to see how they are doing. To sum it up great game and definitely worth removing the ads if you are gonna play through more than 200 levels
Smellsdelicious - Pop up ADs are Expensive- BEWARE!
This app has many in app purchases that randomly pop up. One ad that pops up ALL THE TIME is the Ultimate Bundle purchase that is about $50 dollars. One morning the Ultimate Bundle purchase popped up when my phone screen was left open to Wordscapes, I picked up my phone and accidentally enabled the purchase of it using my fingerprint id. No second confirmation required for the purchase. So my credit card was billed $56 for an in app purchase I didn’t choose to make or wanted. I contacted Wordscapes, no help there-they referred me to the Apple iTunes and App Store. Apple promptly ( in one second flat) refused to refund my money. Thankfully my credit card company is fantastic and they absorbed the loss and issued me a permanent credit on my account. Think of these pop up ads like bear traps if you have fingerprint purchasing enabled on your iPhone and beware. It happens a lot, I think, because when I was trying to get a refund one of the choices for the refund was accidentally purchased something that didn’t require confirmation.
hms53 - Fun!
I got to somewhere around level 3000... this game is fun and keeps your mind sharp... BUT.... it’s extremely annoying to get that far and have an ad continually pop up and be labeled “ not a safe sight” ( or something to that effect)... so here I am starting back at level one, hoping this won’t happen again. What’s really upsetting is that they still had my old review up but I could not continue back at level 3000 because they have no way of keeping track of a player if you have to get rid of and then reload the game. Enough ranting. It’s fun. In fact it’s one of my very favorite games or I would have never started all over again!!! Wow escapes, you need to keep a file of players by nickname ( or something) so players can pick up where they left off if forced to eliminate the game and start over again because of rogue ads. Thanks for listening.
redrider17 - Ugh!!! Terrible
This is the only crossword puzzle type game that I am aware of that uses abbreviations and does not let the player know that an abbreviation is acceptable. This game also uses slang terms! For those of us older than 16, we may have a little difficulty with the current terminology. This game also uses the singular and plural forms of the same root word in the same game! Talk about frustrating! Some of my other complaints: this game draws your battery down very quickly due to the excessive length of the advertisements. Also, this game has a tournament format— and you have no choice whether you want to play it or not! I played a tournament last weekend (7th out of 50)to get 100 measly coins! It definitely was not worth it since one single hint will cost you 100 coins, and the tournament lasted all weekend! Hello developers, how about rewarding your loyal players! The developers of this game need to go back to the drawing board and refine it. There is a lot of potential here for a great game, but you have to put up with a lot of BS to enjoy this game.
Meh1234 - Valid words don’t count??
As many others have said, for some reason there are a bunch of legitimate, valid words that can be made with the letters provided in a single challenge which are not accepted. It’s nice that some words that aren’t on the puzzle itself can still be added to your score/tournament points, but why are certain, valid words deemed unacceptable?? It seems arbitrary and is frustrating.
Other than that though, the game is enjoyable (goes fast with the easy levels, then kind of plateaus), has short/few ads, and can be challenging. However, I wish the coin system was better. It takes a while to build up just to use one power-up, yet every game I’m over the limit with the full piggy bank, so I don’t know why I’m not getting those coins. Not that you really need the power-ups, it would just be nice.
Entertaining, well thought out, and lots of levels. Worth downloading for sure.
HannahSkye23 - Great app, not a lot of ads, and a good price to get rid of them.
I really like this game. I’m not sure why there are so many negative reviews about the ads. They are pretty short and don’t pop up every single puzzle. It has way less ads than any app I have used. Although, the ones I have used are so bad that maybe in comparison this seems like a relief haha The developers made this amazing game and deserve compensation. They can’t just spend time and resources for free. To get rid of ads is just $3, for the amount of entertainment this app provides that is well worth it. It’s less than 1 cup of coffee to support all the work that has gone into creating this app. Or even one cross word puzzle book that isn’t nearly as awesome as this app! You don’t expect to get those books for free, so why this?
✨GLITZ💖GIRL✨ - Amazing and addictive!
This game is so so so much fun! It’s super addicting and I can’t stop playing! I love how there are different ways to get help and not just a regular hint. I just have one part of the game I would like to have fixed- so the game has a bonus word section which is very cool and in my opinion a wonderful idea. The purpose I believe is that if you found a word that’s not on the puzzle, so it goes to the bonus word section. Once you finish the puzzle, each bonus word you find you get a coin for so not only is it an extra word section but it is a great way to earn coins without watching a video. Anyways, I think that all words that are found in the dictionary and not part of the puzzle should be accepted into the bonus word section, not just specific words. If that is already how the bonus word system already works, then it doesn’t work for me.
abrashoffs - Too many ads!
I would rate this a heck of a lot more stars if I didn't get an ad every time I finish solving a puzzle. I understand this is how they are making money, but this is getting ridiculous. I would understand having a couple of commercials after the end or middle of every section, but having a commercial or ad at every other or every three is really making me consider whether I should keep this app, despite the fact that it is soooo awesome! Please tone down the occurrence of these ads developers, so that I will want to keep this! I like the way the game is laid out and the gameplay itself, I just get frustrated when an app like this is awesome and the only downside to playing with an app like this is the copious amount of ads that disrupt my gameplay. I know you are trying to do this to force users to buy something that would get rid of the ads, but it just makes me want to delete this app!
OldFartyFar - Gets boring fast
I love word puzzles and this game was fun for the first 100 levels. I’m now at level 713 and it’s the same word puzzles over and over. There is no increasing difficulty. At a certain point this becomes something you play while you’re sitting on the toilet and have nothing better to do. On average, it takes me under 30 seconds to clear a level and that becomes exceedingly boring after 5 minutes or so. I can usually knock out at least 15 levels during a quick package delivery.
I’ve never made in app purchases - I play the free version only. I’ve even won (or finished top 5) the weekend tournament just because the game is not at all a challenge. The only reason I still play occasionally is because my sister gets mad at how high my level is compared to hers. I play here and there just to playfully rub it in that she is so far behind.
I’d love it if this game was more of a challenge. Maybe consider increasing the word lengths at higher levels?
tigerdawn4748 - Fun and relaxing
I'm enjoying this game. There's no time limits, no limits on guesses, no limits on reshuffling. The music is nice too and I love all the backgrounds. Every so often I'll make a real word but the game doesn't recognize it and that's a little frustrating but not a huge deal. It's nice to find a game I feel like I'm good at. I'm not good with timing games or strategy games, but I have a decent vocabulary so this is a perfect way to entertain myself.
The one thing I would add is a way to tap on a word you made in the puzzle and read the definition. Then I could expand my vocabulary and it would be a great learning tool for kids as well. Maybe at the end of a puzzle, instead of immediately going to the next one, have it stay there and give the opportunity to tap on the words before going to the next puzzle.
KareninStLouis - Superb game could use improvements
This game is great with a couple of irritations. It’s great because it’s different, increasingly challenging, and downright fun. I had to upgrade to the version without ads very quickly. Ads were way too frustrating. Two problems: one is the failure to recognize valid words. I can’t imagine what dictionary this app is using. Sometimes it will even recognize a word in one puzzle, but not recognize it in others, as if it is limiting the number of points scored. Is using puzzle-specific dictionaries? The other irritation is repetition. Similar combinations of letters are used in multiple puzzles so you’re creating the same words over and over. It’s very refreshing when a totally new word comes around. Overall this game is so great that it’s currently the only one I’m playing.
not-a-lady-of-leisure - Pleasure to play
When I first started this game, I almost quit because it was not challenging enough for me. Fortunately, I stuck with it, and it's now one of my favorite games. The game is beautiful to look at, and the varied sounds add pleasing confirmations or warnings as you enter letters in the puzzle. I did find the ads distracting enough to pay to remove them, though they are not as intrusive as ads in other games, and now the game-playing experience is an absolute pleasure.
If I had to offer one suggestion to the developers, it would be to allow extra credit for ALL real words not in the crosswords at EVERY level — not just at the higher levels. And even there, many words are not accepted.
But this is a minor point. It's a wonderful game. [And the new firefly challenge is a great addition.]
cleverpro - In app purchases
This game is nothing but in app purchases galore. You pay 2.99 -which I thought was the in app purchase-to clear advertising and you would think that was it. It’s rewards are so small it’s difficult to build up reward. Thus the app now wants you to buy them. What ever happen to the days when bought an app you would get hints built up on time played without paying again. I’m disappointed with Apple about this. These charges should be noted before you purchase the app. If it were like this I would not have paid the 2.99 and not installed the app. It’s getting that about all of Apple’s apps are like this. Money grabbers like this should be Illegal. I am uninstalling the app and chalk it up to lessons learned. To bad, I was enjoying the game until this. I will never buy another app that has in app purchases. When you purchase something you shouldn’t have to keep buying it Apple.
Horsemaster Aubrey - Amazing 😉
This is the best thing that I’ve ever played and it will be your favorite game too. You will love this game no doubt because who doesn’t like word games and also I have to tell you something crazy so I have been playing this game starting at 2 o’clock and now it’s midnight I’m just kidding but I did start playing this game starting at one o’clock PM and now it’s 7:00 PM that’s crazy right that’s how good this game is. It’s totally amazing so definitely buy this game because if you don’t you will probably regret not buying the game oh and it’s free but it’s not just free because it’s a horrible game is actually an amazing game and if you don’t get it I am am am am am am am I am going to be so mad at you because I don’t want you to be mad at yourself for not buying this game so definitely get this game ITISSOAMAZING
GMSR4evr - Great game
I enjoy this game for many reasons. It can be played for long stretch without getting boring but can be used for a quick distraction. If puzzles are not finished the words completed are saved between playing.
The ads are not too long nor do they pop up too often or at inappropriate times. Generally between puzzles or when signing back in.
The puzzles are challenging enough without being frustrating. I play without buying extra coins and find I can complete puzzles without the use of hints. On occasion I get stumped for a bit but able to eventually complete the puzzles.
The app is easy to use, the screens are visually pleasing. I play without sound so can not comment on the sound.
Overall I enjoy this game and highly recommend it
420_EggBoi_69 - Addictive
I found myself playing this game for many hours. It definitely a great way to kill time. It’s fairly easy once you figure out their parameters of which words are accepted and not accepted. Eventually it becomes more challenging with the number of letters added and letter limit minimums. Once you do figure out the words they accept, you’ll find a lot of the levels to be very similar if not the same as previous levels. I recommend having an unscrambler website handy to save coins on the hints if you’re really stuck. The Ads can take you by surprise if you have headphones in on a high volume so just a heads up. After playing over 700 levels I had to uninstall the game because I was spending too much of my free time on it. So all in all the game does its job of entertainment, but be careful if you have an addictive personality or you’ll be on it constantly saying,”Just one more level”.
veronica wintersparkle - Just a few issues
I’m gonna be honest, I love this game! But there are a few issues. First off, the ads are super annoying and repetitive, and NEVER press the ad at the bottom of the screen with the blinking message. I mean, it takes you to a scam website. Also, I’m tired of that rocket. It ruins the puzzle completely, giving away five letters. I think y’all people should take off two letters. The joy is in the puzzle, not in the letters. Plus, people totally cheat with it. In my opinion, you should suspend the rocket and bullseye when there are less than fifteen letters. Honestly, I love the game, but I was stuck on level 558 for like, three months. This game is extremely difficult and I would recommend that if you are not good at spelling, practice before trying this game. No matter what though, I absolutely CANNOT live without this game.
The_Neuner - Repetitive in more ways than one.
Repetitive. It misses the chance of being a classier game in many ways. My biggest observation is that Wordscapes incessantly asks players to make micro transactions which inexorably leads to ginormous spending on a mediocre word game. Great for the makers and expensive for us.
A glaring flaw is the dictionary used in recognizing words. Obscure words are not recognized by the developers and therefore are not counted. After playing for several days you will have noticed the repetitive nature of the games word selections. This ultimately results in less challenging and repetitive game play.
A two star app and one that will end up being deleted sooner rather than later. As lovers of words our money would buy far more books and refreshing experiences than the fleeting moments of entertainment offered here. Even if this game was flawless it would still end up costing far too much for the type of experience it actually delivers.
bikrekr - Good game but......
Petty good game in general. I have played it a lot. It accepts some words that are not technically English words, or are abbreviations, and doesn’t recognize some actual English words. But that gives it just a little more difficulty. Something I would like the designers to change: You acquire “coins” every level, and can purchase packages with coins and hints to help when you’re stuck. My problem is that the coins aren’t good for anything. I have over 45,000 but you can’t buy anything with them, so what’s the point in earning them? And why would I spend real money to buy them? I wish they would allow you to purchase hints, rockets and arrows with those coins. Please change this to where these coins are useful for something.
So..95268 - Too many ads
Was contemplating even writing this review but I’ve had enough. Now I seriously love this game its just enough of a challenge for me that I feel like my brain id actually doing something other than stare at a phone and not too challenging where I get frustrated and never want to play the game again. Unfortunately the ads are getting me to that point. There id an ad literally after every. single. level. This is just ridiculous. Especially since I’ve reached level 600 already I feel like after a certain point of levels.. just don’t ply ads anymore. And its not just after every level if I even leave the app for longer than two minutes... surprise once you open the app, theres an ad. I would be more than happy to purchase a .99 cent no ad in app purchase but the only thing remotely offered is bundles that cost 3-4 dollars. STOP I just want a no ad purchase PLEASE.
Dujoon - Very fun but designed to make you fail.
I played this game for quite a while before I slowly dwindled to just the daily puzzle. You solve the puzzle in the order your see the butterfly and get stars to get coins. But I started to notice a pattern. In some cases there will be four or five three or four letter words, and since you only have six or seven to choose from they will all be spelled out using those letters, and invariably the one word with the butterfly is NOT GOING TO BE the one you spell. For example - the game I just played had two C__O_E words. The butterfly was on one. I spelled CLOVE and nope, it was the word WITHOUT the butterfly. Had I spelled CLONE, it too would have failed because the game is designed in such a way you will NOT succeed. It will give you too many words with one letter difference but will never let the 1st word be the “butterfly” word, in order to give you fewer chances to get the star.
RequiredNickname888 - Please redesign
I like this game. I’m almost on level 4000. But I have serious issues with the layout of the puzzle screen. Firstly, the layout of the hints is terrible and I’ve wasted probably a couple thousand coins on hints that I neither want nor need because I keep accidentally tapping them with my palm. There should be a confirmation screen when using a hint. There should also be a way to find out what each of the hints do again because I have no idea what 2 of them are supposed to do anymore. The crossword section and the letters can also be bigger. I sometimes have difficulty forming words because the letters are too close together and I select the wrong ones. This could be helped if the hint buttons were moved. If these issues get fixed, I’d rate it 5 stars for sure, but this is too much of an annoyance
Quesadilla135 - Just Starting but Great So Far...
Just downloaded but am moving quickly through the levels and really enjoying the game. I totally don't mind the ads as they are at the bottom of the page and don't interfere with concentration. I enjoy finding the challenge words and extra words and think this is going to be a great addition to my leisure time. TIME PASSES....In the beginning the ads truly were at the bottom of the page. After reaching a certain point in the levels, however, lengthy ads were popping up WAY too frequently and definitely are a nuisance to full enjoyment of the game. It's worth the $2.99 to get rid of them. I'm disappointed the game builders chose this method of getting our money. I would have felt better just paying for the game outright.
PRP_Nelly - It’s Fun But....
Where to start. When I first started playing the game, it didn't have as many ads. Now an ad or 2 pop-up after every puzzle. It’s annoying. Also, the coin system for hints and stuff is crap. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t use hints, but for people that do, it seems completely unfair. It costs 100 coins for a 1 letter hint, but it takes forever to rack up 100 coins. It’s just so not cool. I like playing the puzzles because it really makes me feel like I’m using my brain more than usual. I be over here thinking of some off-the-wall words when the answer could be something as simple as “swam.” Words that people tend to forget because they rarely use them. It’s just an example. All I’m saying is that the games is cool and fun, but the ads are getting ridiculous and the coin systems could be improved. I know you’re trying to make money, but c’mon, cut people some slack.
J._E._J. - Fun but flawed
This game is quite fun and really holds my attention. I think it is mostly the right amount of challenge. However there are some definite flaws. With thousands of levels, it gets repetitive (I swear I have played the same words over again). Also, the dictionary is flawed: very inconsistent over what words recognized or not. There are many “obscure” words throughout that make completing levels difficult. There are too many abbreviations and jargon/slang words like “lite, tech, info” that trip me up. In some puzzles, too many common words are not in the crossword and end up in the extra word section at the bottom left. More words should be squeezed into the crossword. Finally, the weekend challenges are fun, except the results are glitchy as I just won 1000 coins on Sunday only to have them taken away in Tuesday. Updates to this app would certainly improve the rating!
cutecorrine222😙😙 - It’s great but...........
Now I done reviews on a lot of games. Doesn’t that make me a professional😂? I love this game but to me it’s so aggravating how I just keep on thinking of words but yet they keep going in the BONUS WORDS box! To me that just keeps on getting aggravating and aggravating and aggravating. Now I’m only ten years old but this is my go to game. The good things about this game is that they help you learn new words so to me it’s really like a learning game. Also it’s super addicting. I basically LOVE this game but to make things easier I sometimes look up the answers( sometimes I could just look at the list of words and not even see the word I’m thinking of so I make things easier) Sometimes people are like “It’s to many ads”,but their is like one ad every time your done with it. I definitely recommend you should get this game!
Sick of Ads 2: Ad Boogaloo - Why are there so many ads?
The game in of itself is fun and quick. The major problem is the religion and multitudes of ads; they have an ad at the bottom of the screen while playing and an ad for some overly colorful game after each round. Now, most of these will play for a few seconds when you’ll have an “x” pop up in the top right corner that lets you exit out...right into a repeat, if not slightly put together differently, of the previous ad. Then, there’s the biggest bastard of them all: some awful remake of the classic Bejeweled where instead of having an “x” pop up in the top right corner, they have the sound on/off option which makes you sit through the whole 30-seconds of the ad. The ad redundancy is just awful and makes the game slightly unbearable. It’s a shame that games have come to this but I would highly recommend just going to a bookstore or a newsstand and getting a class black-and-white crossword puzzle or any of the other puzzle books.
Hannah Thacker - Great game for your mind!
My great grandmother plays this on her iPad which is amazing considering she has always been technologically challenged because of her dislike for new things. This gives her something to challenge her brain and keep her stimulated throughout the day. When I go over to visit and spend the night, we stay up “late” to play together. This game gives us a way to have fun together and reminds me just how smart she is. I just downloaded this game on my phone and I must say, she is a lot smarter than I am. I’m in college currently and she had an 8th grade education. This app is just a reminder that a formal education isn’t everything. I love this app and am playing in now as a way to fight writers block for short story I’m writing. Great app for all ages! I absolutely love it.
not just kidding - Too many lengthy ads
I love this game but can barely tolerate the intrusive and overly long advertising. The graphics are wonderful and I love the beautiful scenic backgrounds. Obviously, a lot of thought was given to keeping the game moving along with the various chapters featuring new backgrounds. But I spend as much time waiting for the ads to finish as I do playing the game. I’m not sure where my fed up point is but I will tell you I no longer watch TV because of the ridiculous ads showing over and over during the same program. What are you people thinking? And, no, I will not pay for this game to keep the ads out. Figure out some other way to present this game with just minimal advertising and I will continue to play and promote the game to my friends.
