Love this game

Whirly Word is exactly the game I was looking for to replace my former favorite word game whose ads became longer than each game. I love that there’s a dictionary to build vocabulary, and that I can often completely solve the basic level games, but enjoy the challenge. I love that it is a simple interface and there are no ads. I wish the instructions were a little better. I don’t know what the badges mean besides that the lower numbers are better. The vocabulary leans heavy on the harder words being biological terms, unusual spellings, or abbreviations and proper nouns. For instance, anil, Tao, and noncom are valid, but ade and guyot are not. I checked the online Scrabble dictionary for these words, and all were valid except ade, which seems strange, because an ade isn’t unusual for a fruit drink. I must surmise, then, that all word games are subject to the knowledge and biases of their creators. I do wish it were possible to access the full Whirly Word dictionary between games, and also add words to the dictionary for our local use, but I can live with that.

Great way to build vocabulary

I'm really glad to see an update.

Suggestion to developers:

When you move to next puzzle, you are shown the whole solution. There should be some way to clearly show which words were completed, perhaps different color. You show it now with bold font but it's difficult to see the difference.

Awesome, paid up front so no annoying ads

Love this game. I play it almost every day. Some people mentioned the weird words but that makes it interesting if sometimes frustrating. It’s one of my favorites. I love that I payed for it up front and don’t have to endure all those awful ads that interrupt all the other games. Those drive me crazy and that is the biggest reason I enjoy this game so much. I would rarely play it if it had ads. I recommend it frequently to people, even if I don’t even know them beyond a simple conversation.
