Ratings and Reviews
Game vs programming
The game is 5 stars in concept. Brilliant! Daily, the program freezes unpredictably on AI opponent “finding a word.” AI makes ridiculous fame card buying choices in coop mode, regardless of level of AI. If you set three AI to play against each other, an error occurs in every other game. Glitches are too everpresent for such a good game. I’ll revisit this rating if new versions fix things
Needs some work
Overall, I was stoked to have the implementation of expansion options, but…there are numerous crash bugs making it unplayable…70% of the time.
Computer players lock up when trying to make a word. This has appeared with more cards on hand, not fewer.
Computer players (smarter AI) have not made words, or have made suboptimal choices. The first is more problematic than the second. After watching them make ‘FA’ or ‘SH’, I question them missing ‘THE’ or SO’.
Computer players lock up while buying letters. I appreciate being able to skip their turn, but that just gets the game moving. It does not solve underlying issues.
Finally, similar to PAPERBACK VOL1., the double score adjacency bonus does not always work.
Again, thanks for putting the work in.
Some more tweaks will get it where it needs to be.
Great Game but Terrible App
There are so many things wrong with this app. GUI is awkwardly laid out. Some buttons are way smaller than they should be. Push notifications don’t work for online games. Some of the effects on cards like the “Make an adjacent card wild” don’t always work. There have also been a few very legitimate words that the game rejects.
Glad I own the physical game and also glad I got the app for free.
