In some of the puzzles you'll just need to say what you see - but in others you'll need to think a little more laterally. It's easy to play, but with 100s of unique puzzles, you might find it hard to put down!

■ A whole new way to play crosswords
■ 800+ puzzles over 58 chapters (with more to come)
■ 230+ all-new bonus puzzles to discover as you play
■ NEW - 'Mix-Up' mode!
■ End-of-chapter Guardian Puzzles will test your word skills
■ Hundreds of beautiful photos - people, places, animals and more
■ Use instant hints to remove unused letters or reveal the next letter in a clue

Fun game, but…

The game itself is pretty fun. It’s often tricky enough that you really need to think but rarely so tricky that it’s a stretch to consider the answers as part of the picture. The reason for the 3 stars? The insanity of the ads. They’re sometimes 40-60 seconds long (and never shorter than 30-40 seconds long), requiring multiple steps by the player to get through them (clicking the “x” or “done” to progress to the next part of the ad). And it’s a fairly common occurrence that you sit through the ad only for the prize to not get doubled, which is why I decide to watch the ads in the first place. That’s frustrating enough that it deserves losing more than 1 star (maybe not deserving of losing 2, but that’s my only option if I’m deducting more than 1). If the ads were significantly shorter and the prize doesn’t double like it should, I’d have settled for taking only 1 star, but them being that long AND not getting doubled deserves losing more than 1 star. If you’re not annoyed at stuff like that the way I am, you’d probably rate it 4 or 5 stars. It’s worth playing to find out.

Fun but expensive

I like the game. Plays well. Logical clues. However the escalating token cost assures that the player will be required to spend money in order to continue. There is no way out of it. Play skill will not avoid it.
5/17. Still no new classic puzzles. Is this app being abandoned by the developers? It’s been many months since an update to the classic mode. Like others reviewing here I don’t care for the mixup mode. I also echo the complaint regarding answers not relating to the picture itself but rather to arcane references to the generalization of the pix.
9/05. It seems like the classic mode has been abandoned. The mix up one merely recycles old photos and answers so it’s really trivial to solve. This used to be one of my favorites but it’s really stale now. Not much reason to visit it. I can’t imagine that the advertisers like the reduced time-in-app. To the developers: please provide new classic puzzles. It’s why most of us got involved in the app. I luv the original concept. Please don’t minimize or abandon it.

Definitely addicted to this game. Fun and passes the time when you're bored. Keeps your brain sharp for sure! I just wish there was a more clear way to EARN tokens! If you finish some puzzles you'll earn some but if you finish another puzzle, even flawlessly and fast, you don't earn any. I'd like to know how you specifically "earn" these tokens. I've looked in the FAQ and it doesn't answer my question. You need tokens to move on through the boards. If you're not earning the tokens to move on then you have to buy them if you want to continue. Well, I'm not THAT addicted! You guys are making money on all of those ads we are forced to watch, and I really don't mind watching them, I actually click a few. So do you really need to charge us for tokens to continue on in a game that you are already making money on? Come on....I'm sure you want people to keep playing this game!
