3.0 out of 5 stars This is the same as CODEWORD July 16, 2013
By CatChat
Verified Purchase
First off, the game description is that this is a new kind of crossword style of game. But, let me be clear, this is the game of CODEWORDS, which has been around for a very long time. I get 10-15 variety word puzzle games that can be found in just about every checkout around the world (popular publishers are PennyPress and Dell). So, I think it is safe to say that I have played this enough to know this isn't any kind of "new" game these devs have come up with on their own. Basically you are given what would look like a completed crossword puzzle, but any shared letters of words are deleted and you need to figure out what those are. you are not given any clues. let me also tell you that there are two different types of Codeword. one being that you use each letter once, and only once (so there are only 26 blank squares to fill in). another version is, obviously, each letter can be used in more than one location (in this version each letter corresponds with a number which is placed in the square so you can more easily figure out what letter to use where). This game if the first of those two versions.

Now, on to the review of the game. it starts out by letting you pick between 4 difficulty modes, ranging from 30-60 games in each mode. after playing the first game you are asked if you want to unlock a "free bonus puzzle" by posting your score to facebook. you have the option of clicking yes or no and also include with your answer to not be asked this again (which I certainly chose, because seriously who wants to spam all your friends with a stupid word puzzle score). you can change the settings by clicking on your devices menu/options icon (I'm using the kindle fire hd, so for me I had to click on the middle icon that is commonly described as the "notebook paper" icon).

[NOTE: This replaced the AOL "Play" music player as Amazon's FAotD, which met a premature-yet-deserved demise.]

This is an interesting hybrid puzzle game, and at least isn't trying to take money directly inside the game.

The game is something akin to what you'd find if Sudoku and Scrabble had a baby. It is a nice time-killer and brain exerciser.

Now for the bad news:

* You don't get the full game unless you allow it to access your Facebook account AND you post your scores to FB. Obviously, if you don't use Facebook / don't have an account, then you can't get the additional levels.

* Do you REALLY want external apps to have access to your Facebook account?

* Network Access. Yes, I understand that parts of the game are enhanced by internet access. I want this app to ASK FIRST before accessing the network. Personally, I have no interest in those features.

* This is NOT a $5 application. Sorry, maybe $2.99, but that's as far as I'd ever go for this app, and that's with ALL the levels. Just my humble opinion.

[EDIT: corrected name of AOL's music player. I had incorrectly identified it as AOL Radio.]

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun game difficult July 26, 2012

Fun and difficult game. Get rid of the facebook nagging and you get a 5. I hate posting crap to facebook, this bugs me. Fix it.

Found out you can disable facebook. This should be default behavior, or ask me.

Edit: Since this has come up as a free app of the day, I'm inspired to do an update.

The facebook integration I complained about did indeed get fixed, so now I can just enjoy the game without aggravation. And I've definitely been enjoying it! I'm still periodically working my way through the last few puzzles and replaying old ones I've forgotten, and I'm still enjoying the game. It's one of few game apps that's stayed on my phone for a full year. Even Angry Birds went by the wayside before this one did. So between that unexpected longevity and the improvements made since my first review, I'm upping my review to 5 stars.

Original review below:

I got this expecting something more like a crossword puzzle, but in this game you don't get clues other than a set of pre-placed letters. You fill in a set of A-Z letters to make a valid crossword with valid words. It's pretty fun, although it may be even more challenging for crossword afficionados since here knowing a bunch of obscure words just makes it harder (I am forever reminding myself that I need to choose the obvious words for each puzzle!).

The one thing I don't like about this is the facebook integration. It pops up a message asking me to post a score every time I complete a puzzle, but even when I decided I liked the game enough to say yes and let it post once in exchange for a puzzle, the darned thing timed out and wouldn't work. Frustrating! I've tried a few times since but it just doesn't work.

I'm not sure it's really worth $5 when I've had comparably fun games for $2.99 or even $.99, but it's definitely fun and worth a shot if you can get a better price somehow.

1.0 out of 5 stars Requires Facebook for full access July 16, 2013

Why a developer insists that we all join FB for full access is beyond me. The game would be pretty good if it did not have the strong FB ties. Join the Winklevie and get Scrabble...

1.0 out of 5 stars not worth the price
I got this as a freebie. I am guessing all those 5 star reviews did the same. I enjoyed it, and would have happily paid the usual $1 or 2 for this app or for more puzzles later. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun game, even for someone not very good at crossword puzzles
Fun game. I'm not very good at crossword puzzles and this is in some ways easier than crosswords but also harder too. It's easier because you know what letters you have to use. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars a real challenge
Many games don't make me work but this one does. Multiple possible solutions to some of the words and the advanced vocabulary used make Unolingo a real intellectual challenge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick to play, and somewhat challenging
Picked this up as a FAOTD and I am glad I did. It's a good little time waster, each puzzle taking 2 to 10 minutes to complete. Read more
