The app is pretty bare bones and should allow one to review the very fast-paced game. It would be nice to be able to review the letters and the words formed from them after the fact. It would also be nice to be able to replay a game both before and after reviewing. It would also be nice to be able to play without a clock. And it would be nice to be able to see one’s scores, not merely the top score. I hope to see these areas improved in future updates, but encourage you to get the game as it is—it’s addicting.

Beautiful, Tarnished by Dev oversight’s


Sadly no options to:
• Increase character amount
• Increase Time
• Missing some words. Example: “Grok” is a word (game does not recognize it)
(These are not my reasons for 3 star ⭐️)

DEVELOPMENT OVERSIGHT: (My reason for 3 star instead of 5)

Unfortunately, I have no idea why the developer… ignored logic in their mind and DID NOT consider:

500 million iPads apple mentioned, sold world wide… your game WILL be played on an iPad.

Therefore, why not make sure the game shows up correctly on iPad screen?

I have a 12’9 inch iPad Pro, in landscape mode, launching this game, you press the 2x button for the game to blow up and cover the entire screen (fair enough)…

here’s where the developer did not do, their due diligence:

The game appears at the bottom left edge of the screen, dangerously close, to bleeding out the edge of the screen. (making it uncomfortable to play)

I do some some development myself, there is a iOS screen simulator which you can run in xcode, showing approximation of how game will appear on the various iOS screens.

Developer was obviously focused on iphone only.

Sadly, singular thinking like this, diminishes the perception of the passion, involved in this project.

Especially, in this current age, when the development tools are available for the dev, to assist them, and make sure, game is running at it’s best viewing angles, for all iOS device screens.

Very fun, one bug and some requests

This is a great, fast-paced word game for those who enjoy Scrabble, Boggle, Bananagrams or similar (and works great solo). The expanded lexicon is an interesting twist for those who have gotten used to more narrow ones from other games.

I did encounter an issue where, after using earbuds once with the game, I now can’t get audio at all.

Also, I wish it had more stats about your best words, your biggest “missed opportunities,” maybe some other tendencies that you have, etc.

Those might be nice additions in the future, but even as it stands it’s well worth the $2 for anyone who loves word games.

Developer Response ,

If you're willing to provide more information, I'll try to understand what's preventing audio from working for you. Send email to upgameshq@gmail.com so we can chat. Thanks for playing!
