Developer wants players to spend every waking moment playing their game!

Game is ok, but not as good as many other word games. There are coins to earn that give you things like swapping letters without losing your turn or seeing where you can play a word, but the developer keeps upping the ante. If you want to earn 100 coins, you have one week to do it by getting a huge score. It used to be doable, but every week they increase it by about 2,000 points and now it’s over 26,000 points. Considering that the average word is around 20 points, you’d literally have to be playing all day long to earn the measly 100 coins. Last week it had been bumped up to 24,000, so it’s likely to be over 28,000 next week. There’s no incentive to spend that much time playing a word game. I guess they’re focused on senior citizens who are retired or people who are too ill to be functional. Otherwise, they’re hoping you get so addicted that you’ll drop everything to play. Not a nice thought either way. So, people will play, but who cares now if you win or get the points. Its just something to briefly keep you occupied after you’ve gotten through a busy day. It’s sad that the developer has so little respect for players. Seems to be the way the Country is going. I’d rather spend time with family and friends and play HQ.

Look, I know you all want us to purchase the ad free version. Sorry, but I don’t play enough to make that happen. So I use the ad version and there is a big problem with this. I often play while waiting in a waiting room or while watching TV with other people. I have my phone on silent. But , some of your ad refuse to be silent! All of a sudden there is a blast of noise from an ad that refuses to shut up! I go into a high anxiety panic trying to silence this ad that I didn’t even want to see! Also, suddenly all the ads are 30 seconds long and you can’t get past them. It gets where we see the same ad over and over and it is frustrating. There are a couple of games that I have seen the ads for about 1,000,000,000 times. I have begun to absolutely hate them. I will never download those games just because I have seen the ads far too much.
Okay, done with the rant about the ads.
The game itself is good. The badges are a nice touch and they make you want to get more points. The other little games in the game such as collecting things to get a new box is also fun. The dictionary is good and helpful. But, the dictionary often has words that it says it cannot define. Also, some foreign words are accepted but some aren’t. The game itself has done well with no glitches. I have enjoyed it a lot.

Has become a bit too flashy! Turn it down a notch 😉

I have been playing WWF for about ten years now. I used to keep in touch with old friends on it; however, since the new version is so flashy those friends have since stopped. I feel like every time I open it I get bombarded by the spammy atmosphere when I just want to play my games. The animations of gifts, coin accumulation, etc. gets very annoying! I had to turn off notifications because of the $$$Win Money!!! Play NOW!!-style spammy notifications. I get that they want to make money beyond the ads or original purchase of the game, but I wish it were more subtle. The hindsight feature is really neat, and would almost be worth paying for in its own right, but having to go through all of these animations and confusing challenges is annoying and definitely not worth it. I wish I could pay to turn all of these extra challenges off 🙄😫 and just play normally. It’s caused me to not open the game as much. Please introduce a way to at least turn off animations- I wince whenever I play a J word, for example, because the game makes a huge time-consuming deal about it. But I still give it 4 stars for the 9 ish years I’ve enjoyed without all of the spammy features. Maybe give us simple-tons a way to take a break from the extra flashy features, though??
