Lingo - Guess the Word, is a game inspired by the popular game show.
How to play?
The objective of the game is to find hidden words (eg. in 5x5 game mode you should guess the five-letter words in five attempts).
The game includes three game modes: 4x4 (easy), 5x5 (normal, default), 6x6 (hard) and 5 Rounds.
The drawn word has been hidden on the board. The first letter of the word is always displayed. After entering the word, it will appear on the board. Each letter will be highlighted in a specific color:
What are the colors?
Green: The letter is in the right place.
Yellow: The letter is in the word, but it is not the right place.
Blue: The letter does not occur in the guessed word.
Game modes: 4x4, 5x5 and 6x6:
The game uses the following scoring scheme:
Word guessed on the first attempt: you earn 5 points.
Word guessed at the second attempt: you get 4 points
Collect as many points to unlock trophies (achievements).
Bonuses and achievements in the game:
During the game you will be able to earn achievements and bonuses. The best results are saved in Game Center.
Bonuses: Every 5 correctly guessed words - you get an extra chance.
Time the whole game is not limited - you play until you have a "chance". Limited is the duration of one turn. Time to guess the word is 2:30 minutes (in 5x5 game mode).
You start with 3 "chances".
Game mode: 5 Rounds
In this game you will guess the five-letter words. In the game you have to guess only five words. Unlike other games - you have only one "chance".
You can guess words in: English, French, Polish, Spanish and Dutch language.
We wish you many words arranged.

Ratings and Reviews
Awwwww...why did you have to go and fix what wasn’t broken?? Graphics are distracting. I’m not six years old!! Geeze.
Political Ads in Game Must STOP
Ads periodically intrude in the game. No big deal, until I noticed today the ads are from the Republican committee about New York Governor Cuomo.
Did the Russians hack the game? Come on guys...this is supposed to be a silly word game to escape the partisan politics. Can’t play this game if I’m going to be bombarded with propaganda.
Good game, but could use an update
Lingo is, without a doubt, included in my top 5 list of fun and easy-to-play "gameshow" games that made it to the App Store.
4/5 stars - would be nice to have:
-color customization (changing background colors and schemes, etc)
-a way to sign up and log-in so you could track how well you do and how much better you've gotten after playing for awhile
-possibly a co-op feature but honestly, this game is pretty much good-to-go for solo play
-a larger keyboard to input the letters as you guess. The preset keyboard on my iPhone has bigger letters and a bit of space in between them. But in this app, I sometimes struggle to hit the right keys, and I have small fingers!
