2.0 out of 5 stars Would have been 4 but... February 15, 2012
Verified Purchase
This game it's pretty fun, but its dictionary it's pretty limited. It wouldn't let me spell the word cytoplasm, and a few others. I don't know about you but I get frustrated when I'm playing a game where you have to get rid of as many letters as possible and it just won't let you. Sorry but I'm going to go ahead and uninstall because this is more frustrating than fun.

For those with a strong vocabulary, I couldn't strongly recommend WORD COLLAPSE. However, as a young person's edutainment, this is a worthy consideration.

I saw the three year old review saying that they couldn't use the word "cytoplasm". So in my very first game, I spelt out the word "cytoplasm", and sure enough - can't use it. In fact, it seems to have an issue with compound words. I am able to use "plasm" though (alternative spelling for "plasma"). Also little three letter remnants like "hyp" and "col"... ? So yes, it does have a flawed word resource, and it's a shame, too. This game has been out for over three years, and not one single game update - one of those apps that get published then left on the dev shelf. As for scoring, it does keep track in a way: when you achieve a personal best, it lets you know.

WORD COLLAPSE may be considered little challenge as any letter tile can be tapped for word making. Yet if you want to clear the board as much as possible (who doesn't?), the challenge lies within random amounts of each letter per game, and a little thinking is needed to look ahead and see how many vowels and commonly used consonants are going to be left over to spell more words. I realized this as I contemplated the only two "E"s and an abundance of "D"s in an entire play field.

Super easy to read and play on a 5.5" smartphone, multiple game modes, including Timed or Untimed, no code, no permissions (save Wake_Lock), tiny installation at 1.15MB, and does cleanly exit.

Unfortunately, games like these need a robust, comprehensive word resource, nor is such a listing terribly difficult to fix. Games that only need a little minor tweaking to make great but never get the TLC from the dev publisher irritate me. Nevertheless, for younger folk, this may be a decent homeschooling edutainment resource. It's that potential that kicks in the fourth star.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's Okay...but February 15, 2012

The fact that it doesn't save the high scores kind of takes the challenge away. Gameplay seems smooth and it's 3 games in one, so if you get bored you can try a different game. If you're trying to beat your previous score though, you need to remember what it is !!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Dictionary is lacking April 30, 2012
Not bad for a time-killer, but nothing special. The annoying part, though, is its limited vocabulary. You get more points for longer words, but when you come up with good words such as protagonist or weatherize it doesn't recognize them. Frustrating.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent but a little boring February 15, 2012

Played all the game modes and nothing really stood out. Worked fine, just seems a little boring. Annoyed I couldn't unselect a letter by touching it again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Collapsed Offer June 15, 2015
Verified Purchase
Today's free app of the day - Word Collapse - is a word search and letter elimination game.

It combines the standard word search with the common colored blocks collapse. When you form a word through the blocks, those disappear and the resulting blocks collapse around them. This dynamically changes the next words you can create.

There are 130 old reviews from 2012, when it was offered the first time as the Free app of the Day.

At a glance:

Portrait Mode Only - Not Tablet Friendly
Long lead-in time - Screen first pauses before you can select a game
Limited Dictionary - Multiple basic words not accepted
Unable to unselect a Letter by Retouching - Must use back clear button
High scores not saved
Internal Phone Memory Only - Cannot Move to SDCard

This app is repeated from Feb 15, 2012, and has never been updated from the original 1.0.1 version.

It is the 11th repeat in 15 days from Azon (73% of June), the 4th in a row, and the 4th in the last week. This makes 82 old apps offered this year, 128 for the last 365 days, and 163 in total.

This continues the green policy of recycling old offers instead of providing new ones. June will provide no more than 8 new apps.

5.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining word game with three ways to play February 15, 2012
Verified Purchase
I like this word game and thought it is fun to play. I also like that it has three modes of playing so if you get tired of one you just change over. You can turn off the clock for relaxed playing so you are just having fun trying to build the biggest words you can. The app plays with the WIFI turned off.

All three modes are entertaining and are a bit of a brain tease. The game worked well on my Kindle Fire and the graphics were OK.

Permissions:

• Prevent tablet from sleeping

The app uses no adware or malware or analytics. It is safe to download.

The app installed 1.15MB into my device memory. I moved it to my SD card and it left 272KB in my device memory and it transferred 2.12MB onto my SD card.
