(5★) No Complaints
Easy to play, challenging at times.
(5★) So Much Fun!
I enjoy standard mode. For me, it's not about the score, it's about spotting uncommon words or trying to get rid of all the
letters. Regardless of how I play, it's a nice way to unwind!

(2★) They ruined it.
This was my favorite game.until the last time they updated it. I loved the Extended Mode, so of course they did away with it. Now
the game locks up during play and can't be recovered. All your progres
(5★) Fun; Addictive
Love the game. Forces you to look for longer words, and to strategize to form their bonus words. Love that they don't prompt you
to contact "friends" to move to another level. Ads are not too annoy

(3★) Paid, still see ads
This would be 5 (10!) star but I paid to have ads removed and after upgrading my phone, ads are back & yet no option to pay again
either. The ads are a deal breaker. 30 seconds for every 2 minute game

The game is great I really enjoy it. I think there is an over abundance of ads.

The game itself is fun, but the allowed words are puzzling. It includes some very obscure words, and the disallows some much more
common ones. Also the ads are more than annoying. The same ad will
