Ratings and Reviews
As much as I enjoy this game, I sometimes am surprised that words that occur in one puzzle are not in another. But today, for some reason, I am amused that the definition for "Shea" is "an alternative spelling of 'Shea'. " I’m sorry is "or" an alternative spelling of "or"? I’m cracking up.😁
Not Enough 6-Letter Words
Game play is OK, although I do find it frustrating, as others have mentioned, that when letter is tapped, it does not always register. Also, the dictionary is terrible. But the main problem I have with this game is the EXTREMELY limited number of 6-letter words that make up an individual puzzle. For example, I have worked the “ENGAGE” puzzle at least four times in the last couple of days (out of maybe 50 games played). If more words were added, this would be a much better experience. It could also use a “last word” button to bring up the last word entered. This would help a lot with words ending in “S”. I miss Word Warp!
Outdated but still fun
It looks like the game developers left this one by the way side. Hasn’t been truly updated since 2007, so yes it’s outdated but it’s still a great game.
