Almost perfect

I have been a player of Scrabble EA for several years until they recently announced it is being replaced by Scrabble One, which is a disaster. I went on the hunt for a better replacement and found this, which I have been using for a short while. The more I use it, the more I like it. I would even rate it above Scrabble EA, which was the benchmark. Some of the features I really like that Scrabble EA did not have:

1. Swipe over a played word and it gives the definition.
2. The playing board fills the whole screen.
3. When playing against the computer, you aren’t always the one who plays first.
4. There is selectable option to prevent the computer from playing really obscure words.
5. Advertising doesn’t pop up after every word has been played.
6. Pay the $2.99 for the advert free version and you also get valid words appear above the rack as you move the tiles on the rack. You also get a night mode switch plus a few extra features. PAY THE $2.99 - IT’S A BARGAIN FOR THE EXTRA FEATURES.

The reason I stated in the title that it’s ‘almost perfect’ is because I would like to see the developer add feature, like Scrabble EA, that shows the score of the last played word next to that word on the board. Also show the number of tiles in the computer’s rack once the bag is empty.

A Very Solid Alternative to Scrabble GO

This app is a very solid alternative to the horrendous Scrabble GO - the decimated successor to EA’s former Scrabble. Players will once again enjoy the straight-forward classic approach to Scrabble without the onslaught of cheap, amateurish, annoying, and childish revenue-enhancing ploys associated with Scrabble GO. The challenge levels between easy, medium, and hard reasonably reflect beginner to more seasoned player capabilities and the player-friendly options are simple to navigate. The few drawbacks are fairly obvious - online competition with other scrabble enthusiasts is not possible, at least for now. Hopefully the developer will resolve this in the not too distant future. A deficiency at the “Master,” level of play, while subtle, quite likely exists. Players will find that the developer has apparently substituted random tile selection with a bias favoring the computer’s higher-value, word-forming ability. As the tile bag decreases, players are often left with low value tiles that make it improbable to formulate competitive words. All of this said, satisfaction at the easy, medium, and hard levels will delight players looking to free themselves from the insidious constraints of Scrabble GO.

Straight to the point

I went through two word game apps before this, both of which were utterly insistent on “connect to the internet! Play with your friends! Connect this to your social media!”
I deleted both, because what neither of them got is that I just wanted to play word games. That’s it. I don’t need to connect the app to my Snapchat. I don’t WANT to have to connect with friends over Facebook to play a game.
This app is straight to the point, and has good customization options. You can play against a computer, play locally against someone, or try and rack up a high score. And honestly, that is all that I want, and it is everything that I want.

If you want to play word games, then this app is great for doing that. If you want to add a ‘word games’ feature to your social media, then there are plenty of other apps for that.
