    What a word game

    between the regular and the clue puzzles i am always entertained. sure you can watch videos for hints when you are truly stuck but
    where is the fun in that? most word games are too hard, too easy, or get tedious, and i have been nothing but happy with this one

    Great fun! But not all words in the dictionary!!

    I will give this the only 4-stars bec ause quite a few of the words are not really words and not in the dictionary. Some are
    just grammatically incorrect.

    I have started clicking on words I don't recognize and there is no definition for quite a few of them. But - the game is still
    fun! I play i

    Excellent word game with lots of content

    Sliding letters to form words is much more clever than it sounds, and the provided puzzles vary between pleasingly light games,
    solvable tricky puzzles requiring thought, and bogglingly hard obscure sets. My favorite are the clue puzzles, which feel like a
    cross between crossword puzzles and anagra

    My new crossword

    This is one of the few app games I have played where I genuinely feel I am using my brain and not just pressing a button over and
    over. The word puzzles really make you think and the clue puzzles add an element similar to a crossword puzzle that is both as
    interesting as it is challenging.

    Great Word Relaxation

    This is a really nice meditative word game. Some days I just work through the daily puzzle, which has the NYT Crossword style of
    being quick and easy on Mondays and challenging by Sunday. When I'm in the mood for a less stressful mobile game or a little
    vocabulary exercise the puzzle packs are nice.

    great game to exercise your vocabulary and learn new words. it also helps me think about patterns in ways words are constructed.
    would like more information on how to use hints. rarely hangs up.

    Great game, one problem

    this is a clever game that is a great time killer, but i'm having the same problem as others: after every puzzle, i have to quit
    and reenter the app to solve the next one
    . one fix and it's five stars- a very fun game overall.

    Great game, needs help

    I really enjoy the game. It makes you think about words and word structure. It can also broaden your vocabulary. But it has a bug.
    It crashes after every completed puzzle for me. Using the latest 7 plus so it's not the phone. This would be 5 stars if that is
    fixed, and until this is fixed it should

    Very Fun, Bad Word List

    this is a very fun word game, a good time killer. the only negative i have about it is that you can often form words that aren't
    really words. i save them to my favorite word list if it'll help fix it. only once or twice though were the words part of the
    necessary answers, but it does make things

    Excellent word game

    If you haven’t tried this puzzle/game, give it a whirl. It’s easy to learn and asks you to assemble words by moving vertical
    strips of brown letters until a word reads horizontally across the strips, at which point the letters in that word turn green.
    When all the letters are green, the game end

    Very good

    This app works smoothly and logically. I have hit no glitches yet. The game eases you into more challenging yet still solvable
    puzzles. It is fresh and clever, and helps keep the gears in my 72-year-old brain running smoothly. I can recommend it to everyone
    who loves word games.

    You have to think with this one. It makes sense; I'm just surprised it took so long for someone to come up with this idea. I'd

    Great game if you like words

    this is a fun and challenging game. most of the words are common, though a few are weird (like "baaing" -- i'd never guess that).
    hints are available, and you can watch an ad instead of paying cash for hints, which is nice. however, i don't like the game

    Great game but ads are a problem

    I'd give this game 5 stars, but the ads consistently crash the game. I deal with ads on other favorite games as that's how the

    the game is very good, with occasional flaws (i've had a few "words" that are not actually words). but the lack of game center

    Fun game but has some issues.

    I love doing the puzzles and it's really entertaining.

    Big problem is that it doesn't properly follow the progress. For example i finished the first pack, but when I reopened the app,
    the first pack was mark as not finished.

    Eventually it feels like you are just randomly scrolling the columns to find the last word. There isn't a real rewarding feeling
