Ratings and Reviews
Clues could be improved (still fun tho!)
I really enjoy this game—it’s casual enough to play when you have a few odd minutes to kill, and it gives your brain a workout!
My only complaint/suggestion is that some of the clues are really not good. I know figuring out the antonyms is a big part of the game, but it’s frustrating to not be able to beat a level because the clue is off. Because of this I’ve lost interest for a few weeks at a time.
I think the problem is that the syntax of the clues isn’t as consistent or intuitive as it could be.
I would suggest patterning the clues after crossword clues: one thing they do is give hints as to what part of speech you are looking for.
For example, on level 274 the clue is “amount change”, and the answers are “increase” and “reduce”.
The clue implies (to crossword solvers at least) that the antonyms will be nouns, because the clue itself is a noun phrase; however “reduce” isn’t a noun. This discrepancy makes the clue misleading.
Making the parts of speech uniform would improve this clue. The clue say “change amount”, which implies action aka verbs.
OR “reduce” could be switched to “reduction”, so everything would be a noun.
(Thanks for putting up with the novel)
Great game - very worth the $2 to remove ads
Beautiful design and great game mechanics. While it’s true that the game is worth it to pay for ad-removal, I wonder if there’s a way to encourage upgrading without the obnoxious ads? I think a game this good deserves a more refined way to make money. Maybe lock out the user from playing more than a certain number of rounds per day until they pay for unlimited access?
Developer Response ,
Thank you for the comments and feedback! Appreciate that much!! In the latest update you can visit the level selection menu, then tap on the “More Level Packs” button to reveal new level packs... Synonyms, Homophones and more! Any level pack that you purchase will also remove ads 😉
I’m working today on an update that will make that level pack menu even more accessible, and adds bundles for the level pack groups. Stay tuned!
Frequent ads ruin it
The gameplay is clever and innovative. Too bad this developer has hit us with one of the worst things you can do to a game: play video ads really often (every couple of levels) with audio that does not respect the in-game sound setting (which I almost always have off) and no way to buy an ad-free upgrade. That’s three strikes, you’re out. The only surer way for a developer to lose my support is to fail to respond to support requests (which I haven’t had to do with this game yet, as it works just fine)—that’s a one-strike out. Two stars because I do enjoy the concept, but no more than that until the developer frees us from obnoxious ads.

Hi there, thanks for the feedback - there’s now a remove ads option as well as purchasing any level pack or bundle removes ads ;) Hope you’ll give the game another try!
