Unique, challenging, entertaining, educational

2022 The accolades below are still true years later. But I now understand red herring needs two versions. One would be a mostly trivia version featuring movie stars movies songs etc., and the other would be largely wordplay and logic. I have no idea how to name them differently. 2019. There are no other word games out there like this. Exercises your thinking in a different way from other word games: you have to think in categories rather than in simple definitions. I've been playing for years and I enjoy it as much now as I did years ago.

Pretty good but could use improvement

I enjoy red herring and feel that it is a great idea for a game. The reason for three stars is the following. I get that game development is expensive, but I am getting both ads and pay in app expenses. If ads are going to be included then they should either disappear when one makes an in app purchase or there should be more puzzles offered for free.

One place where the free puzzle platform could be expanded is on the daily puzzles. I note that one gets the last thirty days if one buys a pack of older daily puzzles. But what about allowing us to just have access until the puzzles are posted as older daily puzzles? There are several years that are not listed. You could let us keep the puzzles we’ve completed and as those puzzles become older remove them and place them in packs. As it is, even if you purchase one of the packs, you only get the last thirty days. It would be fun to have the last 6 months up until they get “packed”.

Another problem is that sometimes the developers have incorrect information. For instance: Twice now they have had the category “Big Cats” and have included cats that are wild cats but are not big cats (no, ocelots are not big cats). This is just an example, but maybe you need a consultant in the life sciences?

I know the second point may seem to be quibbling, but it is only one example. There have been several gaffs of this sort.

Thank you so much for your thoughtful input.

Was 5 *, but slipped a bit.

Update! Just got an update from the developer, and it’s just great to know they took the time to respond to my note below. Back to 5 stars all the way!!

I love this app. Some categories are obscure, but that’s just a way for me to learn. The reason for only 4 stars is because with the latest update, you can only see the daily puzzle for the current day. In previous releases, you could work the last 3 days, like Monkey Wrench and Seven Little Words. I’ll continue to play the game, hopefully daily. But I guess I’ll just miss the days I miss, & be glad there’s one free puzzle per day.

Thank you so much for updating your review!
