This app is advertised as a snake word game, where you go through the correct words. But in reality, there is no snake game until you reach level 100. Seriously. Level 100. It was a waste of time. It took me less than 45 minutes to get to said level, because it was so easy. I didn’t struggle to find a word once. If you are older than the age of nine, this game will be too easy. I wanted a challenge.
When I actually got to the snake game, it was slow, and my phone crashed a lot. You tried to move it faster, like those other snake games they have. But it wouldn't go fast at all, so in the end, you would die because you try to gain more points, but instead you can’t go fast enough to reach the right word. And 4 year olds would have difficulty playing that, because there are words like “lard” included. What 4 year old knows the word LARD?! It’s not a good app. Just don’t get it. Too many ads, it crashes, it’s slow. If you are an adult or teenager(and I am NOT talking to those 5th graders who think they’re so cool because they have phones and play rap music, because you’re not teens and if you are going into middle school, you’re going to get a rude awakening, because you’re not going to rule the school, and 6th graders think they’re cool but they’re not, they just look ridiculous. You know who I’m talking to) this app is NOT recommended. Thank you for not downloading it. I warned you.
I hate how this app makes you swipe from letter to letter when creating words because a lot of times, it doesn’t recognize the swipe, making you get the word wrong and having to redo it more carefully. A lot of times you have to press down really hard to make it comprehend what you’re swiping. I also highly dislike how you can get bonus words in each round, but sometimes the game doesn’t recognize a real word as a bonus word. For example, you can have a group of three-letter words, and you may go through several three-letter bonus words before you figure out which one actually fits their blocks. I’m working on one of the puzzles right now that has several three-letter words, but when I tried “elf” it wouldn’t take it as part of the puzzle nor a bonus word. And I swear this game makes up some words! I also don’t like how you can’t select which box you’d like the hint to go in; it just goes in order from beginning to end. I didn’t realize how much I hated this app until sitting down to write this, but the fact I felt compelled to write a review in the first place should’ve told me something.
It’s ok... but there are several gaping holes in the game.
The worst of these being, the developers of this game obviously don’t have a very good grasp on the English language. There are way too many words they don’t recognize that are widely accepted and common words. Another being they actually use words that aren’t proper “Scrabble”-type words, such as country and personal names. One such puzzle had Jamaica as the largest word to discover, and yet didn’t accept the word jam, when there was three letter words to be found. I understand not having the word as one of the main words of the puzzle, but when you are supposed to be able to collect “extra words” for diamonds it’s frustrating when perfectly good words aren’t accepted.
Its ok for wasting time as I said, but with so many games, exactly like it, with a much better dictionary of words, I don’t see the point.
Before the devs send me the same response to this review as has been sent before, stating that I can contact support at such and such a site with uncollected words, don’t bother. It’s just easier to download a game with the words already in its system with the exact same gameplay.
This is nothing like it’s advertised as.
I was on Snapchat going through a story when an ad for this game popped up. It seemed like a pretty fun game, there was a snake game where you had to dodge wrong words, a hammer game where you hit the correctly spelled word, hangman, and so on. I saw the ad a couple of times and decided it would be fun to try out so I downloaded it.
And it was nothing, and I mean nothing, like it was advertised on Snapchat. It was basically a ripoff word soup game where there are several sets of words you must make with a few letters. Every 10ish levels you would get to play the snake game but when I played it there were no correctly spelled words and there were points where there was no correct answer. Every time I retried I had to watch another ad, and the snake game kept having no correct answer. It was just frustrating. That’s not it though, the hangman game and the nail game were never there.
Download it at your own risk. But just understand this, it’s nothing like the game advertised on Snapchat and Instagram. It’s just flat-out false advertising, and that’s exactly what makes me mad about this game. I spent more time writing this review than actually playing the game!
Dear Creators of this game,
i don’t like how this game looks so fun in the advertisement but in reality, it’s trash! Honestly i’ve never been so disappointed in a game in my entire life. Thanks for wasting my time🙄There was sooooo many fun games and challenges on the ad but, in the actual game it was just some stupid boring game.
And Btw if your gonna make a game make sure it’s the same as the advertisement, honestly you guys should be ashamed of yourselves, because you had kids all excited because there was so many cool challenges, but all you guys did was disappoint them, as an 11 year old, i’m even disappointed,
So if your thinking about making a word link again, make sure look at these reviews and make us happy because right now i’m so mad, this review was actually more fun then your stupid game could ever be.
Make sure that your game looks like the advertisement and it i will put a better review, but as of right now your Definetly failing, So goodbye, you guys(as in the creators) changed my whole mood, i was happy but now i’m madddd, now GOODBYE TIME WASTERS.
And to people that wants to get this game don’t it’s a waste of time. It’s not a threat, it’s a warning⚠️
Not as advertised. Really read reviews and about game before downloading
I was playing a different game when I viewed an advertisement for this game. The advertisement showed the game where it gives you a word and you have to form a picture of that word by using pieces of other pictures (objects). However, there main focus of the game is a completely different game. I saw it had other games and made the terrible mistake of assuming it would allow you to choose which ones to play. I also saw the game had an overall good rating, so I downloaded it. I’ve been very disappointed by it. The main game is what you MUST play to unlock the other games, and you can’t even continue to play the other games! They’re considered “challenges” and you can only play them for a little bit. I was NOT satisfied and it was nothing like advertised. However, if you know an accurate description of EXACTLY what this game is going to be like, and are interested in playing that, im sure you would like it. I just did not find in the game what I was looking for after seeing the ad.
Developers need to expand their knowledge of English. There are tons of words missing from the database, and no consistency on whether proper nouns are included or not as well as slang words. Plus what’s with never going above six letters. Make it more challenging! On top of all that I’ve come back to change my rating because I just noticed it’s not even tracking all the words I know I’ve found. When you find a word in the letters, but not part of the solution, it gets added to extra word list. But apparently all those extra words do not get added to your overall collection. Dumb! I am on level 232 already after having the app for less than 2 days ... was hoping for more and I am getting frustrated with all the words that are not included. No feedback options in the app either ... so you are stuck with it as is. Additionally it inconsistently recognizes words ... sometimes it says it is a word and other times it says it isn’t. Ridiculous!
Serious database flaws
By Bonito apps
You know, I really didn’t mind the fact that this game was just swirling through the letters and making words, didn’t care about the level 100, etc. but I just stopped in the middle of a game after playing every day for weeks when I realized that I’m sick and tired of clear ENGLISH words that are in every dictionary always MISSING from the database. Just now It won’t even recognize the word PIES... honestly, the word PIES! (No, it hasn’t been found before and that’s why it’s not taking it or else it would’ve said that… And yes there are four-letter words that haven’t been solved yet, as a matter of fact, four of them!) it also didn’t take the three letter word “ads” today. There were two early this morning but I don’t recall what they were. I’m not talking about serious abbreviations or slang or anything like that but normal English words. If you can’t get it together and have a normal English database that includes the word PIES, then I’m sorry.. you gotta get off my ENGLISH phone. It was fun while it lasted!
Not what I was expecting.
This game is NOT what is advertised on social media. Advertisements look as though it’s a really fun interactive game. In reality, it’s just a word finding game from jumbled letters. Very generic, but to top it off, you don’t get points for all the words you find. Each level is a little different, but if it shows blocks for 4-5 letter words and you find a 3 letter word, it tells you that it is incorrect. Then, when you do get to the levels that look like the advertisements, they’re repetitive and simple.
I’m already on level 120. I’ve MAYBE been playing 45 minutes. I forget which level it asked at, but it asks if you would like to purchase the game to no longer have ads. If you click “no” there is an ad every other round or so. Luckily they don’t seem to be more than 15 seconds at a time. But it’s quite excessive.
Nearly unlimited unique word puzzles, with a TON of mini games!
I found that after the first few levels completed, you can unlock the mini games found in the advertisements!
In the main menu, go to the icon on the bottom left and you can choose from 7 different mini games, in case you get bored of the word puzzles. Plus, you earn diamonds which can be used as hints in the mini games!
The main word puzzles range from very difficult to fairly easy. I am fairly certain that the difficulty is random after each level. If not, then the programmers did a great job finding the perfect mix of easy and challenging to keep you interested in the game!
