There are three nice single player modes: A "Daily Puzzle" mode, a "Temple Challenge" mode where you attain a higher rank as you complete more puzzles, and a "Battle Mode" which is a turn-based competition on a single board against computer opponents of increasing difficulty.
Another reviewer said that the game supplies a lot of vowels, and this is true, so it's pretty much a given you will be able to clear most of the puzzles if you use your "wild card" tiles wisely.
I don't really think the ease of the game is a limitation, though. I like the ability (in Temple Challenge Mode) to be able to take back my moves, including getting my "wild card" back. This gives me the chance to try different word combinations to successfully complete the puzzle, and that's a good thing. Not too many games give you a second chance like that, so if you "try try again" you won't get frustrated.
Please note that when you use the "wild card" tile, the game doesn't display a list of 26 letters to choose from, it just checks its internal dictionary for a spelling match once you have completed entering the word.
That's a bit different than other electronic Scrabble-type games.
The game seems to have a pretty extensive dictionary, too.
The "fortune cookie" perk in "Temple Challenge Mode" gets a little stale
(ha-ha) too quick. They could have come up with better, less redundant fortunes, but that's a minor quibble.
My only problem of the game is that the dictionary is flawed. You have a 9-tile limit, so the dictionary only contains 9-letter words. The problem with this is that one tile, "Qu", is two letters on one tile. So perfectly common 10-letter words containing a "Qu" are 'not in dictionary'. Words like 'Quotations', 'Equatorial', etc. have been turned down for me, though oddly I think 'acquiesced' was.
If not for the 10-letter, 9-tiles dictionary issue, would be a five star game for me.
It is really alot of fun! My favorite part is the daily calendar Word Jong. A puzzle for each day! So far I have solved the whole month of February! You can go back to previous month if you want.
Great word game if you are into forming words on what is available to you or if you like spelling as well!
There are 3 modes:
Temple ~ Which is standard mode where you are given puzzle after puzzle and earn a new rank after scoring a certain amount of points; and you must use all tiles; if you complete the puzzle with a leftover, you have to try again
Daily Puzzle ~ You are given points to beat and go through the stack
Battle ~ You earn points to go against higher opponents and try to beat them with the higher points to earn the next level of opponent.
Overall, a fabulous game. Anyone who loves word games will truly enjoy this one! I am dreading it ever ending....
You get a new puzzle every day and can go backwards in months to give yourself more puzzles to solve until the new daily one comes out. I have flowers for the current month and backwards, all the way into July now.
