4.0 out of 5 stars A fun game to play and it is challenging but many fake reviews and multiple links to the web!, November 18, 2012

This review is from: Word Stack - Fun and Addictive Word Association (App)
Game Play:
The game starts by asking you to please check out the instructions. The goal is to drag and stack associated blocks of words that may be linked by meaning or typical use. The words can be synonyms, antonyms, parts of compound words or words that just have to be related through common use. Try not to get stuck with leftover blocks. The key is to link the next block to the one you just placed and remember that the theme of the link may have just changed. The stack does not have to all be of the same theme but only the words that touch.

You can select what type of stack pack grouping you want to play:
* General
* Ordinary
* Familiar
* Regular
* Common
* Usual
* Average

Each stack pack has 40 levels. You can actually arrange the words and get them to stack and then find that the app will not allow you to stack all of the blocks as it believes that while the ones you used are connected, they are not in the proper order. Since many times the links between the words is so weak I find this aspect of the game hard to agree with.

Main Screen:
* News - takes you to a link to download a free game
* Cube - takes you to Amazon to buy more games
* Play
* Question mark
* Settings gear asks you to rate the game, control sounds, reset the game, control the music and signup for the MochiBits newsletter.

What I like:
This is a nice word association game a fun to play. Some of the word associations are weak links but you can figure them out easy enough. It is challenging and interesting to play and can burn up time before you know it.

What I don't like:
Network links to their news, Amazon, rate the game and signup for their newsletter. Turn off your WIFI or put your device in airplane mode to prevent your children from browsing the web and buying items.

This morning there were 146 five star reviews and 59 of them were first time reviewers and 34 of them were second time reviewers and 34 of them were people who had reviewed for the third time. Many of these are obviously fake reviews and so the rating of the game is skewed way to high. I don't care for this practice as I believe that it unfairly can influence potential buyers. This game is good enough to stand on its own merits and doesn't need this type of self-promotion.

Summary:
This is a good game and it is fun to play. It does contain many links to the web to purchase other items and go to the developer's web site. I don't care for the obvious fake votes and they are excessive.

I rate the game as a 4 star game and it is worth the $0.99 to purchase it. It will keep you busy with a lot of levels and challenging game play.

Size: 4.39 MB in size after it is uncompressed.
