Game is ok, super disruptive ads
The game itself is ok. It starts out very easy and kind of boring but gets better. I like the special levels and cookie jar for extra words. Unfortunately the ads are beyond normal annoying ads in that there are a lot of interactive ads and ads that interrupt sound from background apps, even when game sound and ad sounds are off (I play music for my baby’s nap while I’m on my phone sometimes and the ads can stop/override the songs). But the WORST thing, the thing I’m starting to think is unforgivable, is that it gives you an ad each time you are interrupted or exit briefly from the game. Like if I get a low battery pop up, I get an ad after. If I pop out of the game for a second to answer a text, I get an ad when I go back. If i get a phone call, I get an ad when i return to playing. And this is in addition to ads between levels. Even if I’ve JUST watched an ad and then have to go answer a text real quick, it does its few seconds of loading and then gives another ad. It’s pretty obnoxious and makes me want to stubbornly never buy the game rather than pay to have ads removed. Ads are ok in general but don’t make me deal with two interactive ads in a row that screw up my background music.
Excellent word game for all ages
By Charlotte Lindsor
Similar in goal to Whirly Word. THAT app has a dictionary option where you can look up any new words you find by accident. THIS app gives you extra CREDIT points for finding new words, and an advanced bonus level when you qualify, which adds a letter to a finished puzzle so you can see all the new words that new letter just helps create. Very organized game, nicely considered, from the scramble feature for fresh eyes, to the literal tracing out of the spellings with your fingertip. And definitely a contest! The lure I like best is that the words are in alphabetical order. There comes a point in every round when I don't see any more words, but I'm missing two for a clean sweep. One is a four letter word that must start with a 'T' and maybe the other is a five letter word that starts with 'fi'. There are ways you and your kids can detect what's missing, and this game is rated "G" so don't expect vulgarities to be worth any points.
It's my automatic go-to game when I'm waiting for something. Test yourself, and see how many words you can find.
I’ve finished the game twice!
I really like the game for many reasons. It’s challenging enough, the words to discover are in alphabetical order (very helpful when stuck), swiping from letter to letter then releasing to deposit the word (such better design than other games out there), also there are many levels to play, and extra coins for various activities, etc.
That which I think needs work: the ads, they certainly are a pain, but there are work arounds. But most in need of work is at the end of the game, it just ends. I don’t know, I feel like I want to be congratulated for finishing the game that I’ve spent several weeks completing. Very minor thing here, I know. Also, when opening the game for the first time after midnight each day, one gets the opportunity to play the shell game for points... I almost always picked the one coin that only offered one hour for discounted hints. I prefer the coins straight up; most often I would not be playing for an hour to take advantage of the discount. The last thing, the points (not coins) that are accumulated really don’t mean anything, do they?
Bring back the tickets on the wheel!
I honestly LOVE the app. When I first got it, I was hooked! That was almost half a year ago. Well all of a sudden came the league! It’s amazing! I love playing against people! Before the tickets got taken off the wheel, I wanted to play on the league almost all the time! When the tickets were taken off, it’s become harder to get tickets. Here, think about it. What happens if you loose your last ticket due to loosing a game. For me, I feel like loosing is normal. But then you don’t have anymore chances! You won’t always get the ticket on the wheel after your league game! That means that if you don’t get the ticket on the wheel, you are pretty much done with the league unless you buy more tickets. They should have a way to regenerate your tickets. You know? So they should make it where your tickets will regenerate everyday. Until something like this happens I don’t think I’ll be playing in the league for a while as I am down to my last ticket.
Awesome... I love word cookies!!! This game is soooooo calming and relaxing. Word cookies is a nice game you would want to play just after you get out of school, of get done with homework. At first, I was like, this game sounds so silly, or even dumb. Who would want to play it? But now, I regret taking so long to get this game! I found out about this game on an ad on another game. I saw it a couple of times, I really didn't think much of it. Then I saw it on the App Store and was like, I'll just try it. And now I love it!!! This game has a tiny bit of challenge. It is not totally easy, but not so hard at the same time. And you will especially love this game if you are like me and like to think!
Every thing about this game awesome and cool except for one thing... THE ADS!!!!!! I absolutely hate the ads. They are so annoying and everywhere!!! That is the only thing that I have a problem with. But other than that, GET THIS GAME!!!!
Please fix the ads, whoever made this game........
Just got an ad AFTER PAYING FOR NO ADS
I’ve been playing this game for a while, and yes, the ads were annoying, but I figured I enjoyed it enough that it was worth paying for no ads. I’ve had it working fine with no ads for maybe a few months now, with no problems. Today, while playing (in the middle of a round!), an ad starts for National Geographic!! What’s up with that???! My first thought was that maybe they did an update and messed something up. Evidently, an update was posted this morning, but nothing about ads that I can see. Next thought: maybe the developers didn’t realize they introduced a new bug, and I figured I would contact them. But if you click on “App support” within the App Store, it takes you to Facebook. I DON’T WANT TO HAVE TO GO TO FACEBOOK TO GET SUPPORT!!!!! Next thought: I will go to the developers’ website to let them know about this problem, but AGAIN IT TAKES YOU TO FACEBOOK!!!!! GRRR, GRRR, GRRRRRRRR!!!! I used to really like this game, but I am ticked off that the only way to log a problem outside of Facebook (for a paid user, even more so!) is to write a review like this.
Cute & Fun
This is a good, fun pastime. I haven’t encountered any glitches or annoyances, which makes the game an enjoyable experience. The style, music, and theme make the game “cute,” too, which makes it even more fun.
I’ve seen a lot of people downgrade their ratings and reviews of this game because of the ads. Honestly, the ads aren’t a big deal for me. Unlike normal 15-30 second ads, Word Cookies gives the option to close after five seconds. Besides, the IAP isn’t a large price to pay for removing ads. If it really disrupts your gameplay, I don’t know what to tell you. Free games will always have ads. It’s their way of making money.
Plus, coins are really easy to get. You achieve some every few levels or so, you win some every day when you first open the game, you get some after watching a video... I think this makes up for the excessive ads.
You may get bored on the first few levels since they mainly include 2-4 letter words, but you’ll be challenged soon after that. I’ve seen a lot of negative reviews regarding this... play the game some before you give it a negative review. It wants to get you familiar with the controls.
Overall, I think you should get this game. It’s a free, fun passtime that’ll get you hooked quickly and make you think. It certainly made me think!
Very boring but gets harder😕
I downloaded this game a few weeks ago and I tried it and it is SO boring. They make you get past levels that have 3 letters in them like B-A-T before you finally get to harder levels that only have 4 letters like S-T-A-B. It takes at least a week of playing it 15 minutes per day to get to challenging levels with 6-7 letters. If you are willing to spend hours & hours playing boring junk then you might get to eventually like the game. Also it's really annoying because almost every time you pass a level you get an ad about a different game. The ads alone probably make up for about a quarter of all the time you spend on this app. One good feature about it (probably the only one) is where you get words that are not ones you need to pass the level to collect coins. It is the only thing that is not dull and boring about the game.
I am pretty disappointed with whoever made this app. You can come up with something less monotonous than this, come on!
From a disappointed customer😕👎🏻
Coin present box
There is a present box that you can press to watch an ad then after the ad you can get coins to help you get hints for letters on words you are stuck on which does not give out the 15 coins after the ad. I have in the past tapped the present for the ad and gotten the coins but now when I press the present and watch the full ad, I do not get any coins. I have done this quite a few times ( around 15 times) usually after the 15th time I get the 15 coins but most of the the time no matter how many times I have pressed the present I get nothing from watching the ads. Then I have to sit through ads that pop up during the game which you get nothing for watching them and even though some ads you can skip most of them make you watch the entire ad. Please either stop those ads or fix the present box problem and give out the coins when you are supposed too.
Ad problem fixed!
I love this game! I love how at the top it says, Beginner Chef for the start and Fantastic Chef for the very last course! I used to play this game so much, but there were so many ads! And I deleted it. But then I decided oh well why not download it again! And I did and it’s great! So let’s get down to how to play and what you can do. 1st, in this game you can go to different levels. Each level will give you letters, and you have to spell out words with the letters! Once you pass all the level I in the group, you move on to another group. Actually, my cousin introduced me to this app! And I’m very lucky she did! 2nd, I love how you can get hints because some words you might not figure out! And hints are not costing you real money, they cost you in game money! And that’s only 25 cents! Well I hope you guys love this app
And I rate it 4.5 stars!
