Fun game, irritating facebook integration is now fixed!
on August 12, 2012
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.
