Scoring and Opponents
I love the speed of this game, it’s been a favorite for a long time. You know there’s a ‘but’ coming, right? I don’t get how opponents are chosen in Multiplayer. I will see that I won a game, and in the results I have lost a very old game to someone. Also, there is one person, Sheila something, with the little kid in the profile picture, who must have a million games/scores in this app. She is pretty much the only person I get matched with. Is it just she and I playing? It would sure be nice to have some variety, and maybe not lose loads of games 100,000 to 10 (I’m exaggerating about the 10). I know, she’s excellent but could we have some variety please? I’ll go over to Words With Friends where the scoring makes sense and you can clearly see who you’re opponent is.
With the crashing. Yes I was hooked. I got involved with the leaderboards. I got to number 2 (me) in standard and number 4 in expert mode. I actually should be number 1, and 2 and 3 ... every time I got there though, ask the letters lit up for a second and then the game was done. I was sent to the PLASMACORE screen. Even when I achieved a score which should have shown in the rankings, other than my number 2 ranking, it never showed. Assuming this is the case for everyone, the ranks are useless, inaccurate and misleading. Why bother? It's actually a good game as long as you are not hooked. Once you are hooked the crashing makes it frustrating.
Fun way to pass the time
This game reminds me of an elevated Boggle with many levels of play, from simple to strategic. I like finding ways to make words that leave bonus point letters that I can then combine to make a word that has multiple bonuses applied. The sounds are cheery and I play the standard game to relax.
One thing that would make the game more enjoyable is a better distribution of letters—many times there is a ridiculous number of the letter “i”.
On another note, I don’t expect things for free, so I paid for no ads after a few test plays and have had no issues since.
