■ A whole new way to play crosswords
■ 730+ puzzles over 46 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 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.

I had to set a time limit

I had to go into my Screen Time and set an hour limit on this game. It’s weird how quickly an hour passes with this game. If you’re in a position in life where you can’t stand waiting for something, this is the perfect game to play while you’re waiting. Word Town is another one, but this is the all time consumer of the two.

Previous review:
Though, I did learn something new today; that the heavy shirt knights wear under their armor is called a "chain mail shirt", I had to use up a lot of coins to figure out the clue. I probably wouldn't have figured it out immediately if I had known it was two words instead of one, since I had only associated "chain mail" as a threatening email forcing a group-forwarding response, but I would've had ways of researching until I did get it. So you might want to fix that to reflect two words. No snatched stars, today, though...since I did learn something new.

Gotta be quicker than that

If only you had a way to scramble the words, & also let us focus on any part of the word, when utilizing the words placed before us. What I mean by the latter is that you only let us fill in the missing spaces, from beginning to end, & don't give us the option to start from any point we choose to do; the only loophole to this is to fill in all the spaces incorrectly, & alter it manually. Also, you all have a problem in giving a better way to earn purple coins (to play puzzles). The yellow coins are easily accessible; it's the purple ones that can only be obtained by either waiting it out, or getting a daily (which is basically more waiting after you use up those earned, purple coins) word reward. We have enough of capitalism in our country. Lastly, the ads are annoying. Please make them not as frequent. I understand it's necessary to have, but it'd be nice to not have that much of it. Other than that, I really do love this game. Not trying to sound & or be mean or disrespectful to the developers (or founders).
