The new version of Wordscapes is a lot of fun. However, the developers have made it impossible to get all of the animals. In the beginning, when it first appeared, you only had to have 300 points or 900 points to get an animal. After the first week they changed it to 900 and1500 points. There’s really no difference in what you get between the 900 and1500 points, they give you the same animals over and over again. Supposedly for the 1500 points you can get the level four animals; but I haven’t even been able to accumulate several of the level twos and level threes.
The other thing that is completely annoying is the star rush. It’s pointless. There are no instructions to tell you how to actually see how many points that you get or even how to play the game. All it does is get in the way of what you’re trying to do. It’s just another way for them to get you to pay for coins.
The portraits are getting old. Again, it’s impossible to get all portraits in a section. You get the same ones over and over again. The last time I actually cashed in my points, it gave me the same 3 animals every time. I stopped playing. it’s not worth it.
As of this writing, January 2023, they have had the same butterflies up for the last five weeks. There have been no new butterflies. How many butterflies can one possibly accumulate.
Developers need to purge some of their side activities, especially the star rush. They also need to take a look at how the computer decides the distribution of the characters.
It’s a great word game, the players on here are wonderful, the way they give you definitions to the words you find is great. However you may earn portraits Aka avatar pics along the way.. some are “safari” “marine life” “stars” ect but collecting becomes extremely annoying once you get to about 80% of portraits in a section earned. It’s like they rig it to either give out only certain animals during certain weeks so you have to wait till another week to HOPE you can finish your collection but it never happens. There’s even a secret animal for completing a section and it incredibly dissatisfying to get over 40-100 repeats only to never get that secret coveted animal… plz guys fix the issue my whole team agrees… besides that rockin game and ty mom and I love playing.
This game is super fun and pretty addictive, but at least once per event the game glitches and doesn't give me my event rewards. This is super frustrating because a big part of why I play is the feeling of completion I get when I earn a portrait or a butterfly, so repeatedly not having my rewards counted when I complete a level just feels discouraging and makes me not want to play for big chunks of time.
Overall the game is still really fun, but I would be hesitant to spend any actual money on this game until this issue is resolved as it greatly hinders my total enjoyment of this app.
The design and features are fine. I’d prefer something simple with fresh puzzles and fewer gimmicks that you know full well are designed to grip the attention of some players prone to addiction. Come up with new puzzles over designing cute little challenges that insult the intelligence of people looking for intellectual challenges.
The rating is even lower though because the app is prone to become sluggish or even freezing the entire phone. Most likely, it’s just bad coding. However, I can’t help wondering if such behavior isn’t an artifact of malware or the like.
I just recently went from a Samsung phone to an iPhone, and when I tried to renew my purchase for ad removal it wouldn’t load my previous purchase even though I’m signed into my account.
To remove ads on the Samsung version is 4.99$ or 5.99$ can’t remember specifically, but why is it 99.99$ for the iPhone version?? This seems absolutely ridiculous!
I absolutely love this game, but this is the best example of price gouging I’ve ever seen.
I wonder why, out of thousands of words in the dictionary, they have to repeatedly use the same mystery word several times! It’s tiring and boring. SMH In addition to that, they might want to move the buttons above the screen.. I keep tapping them accidentally I lose hundreds of coins. And pleeeeease check your dictionary! Some nouns are not available! Why?
Update: deleting it now. Their dictionary is JUNK!
Although the game is excellent, there is an ad every single time one wants to do the next puzzle!!! Most of the ads can be shut in a few seconds, but one incredibly obnoxious one, for Royal Match, is not only super long but it actually freezes the app or shuts it down!!! Evidently the developers of Wordscapes don’t bother beta-testing the ads to make sure that doesn’t happen. I’m sick of it!
This game is fun because you have to find the word then spell it and sometimes it could be words you don’t know of it could be confusing that’s why it’s kinda hard. But I love it I play this almost every day lol. Also for like younger kids maybe it could help them spell. Idk about like 5 year olds but maybe like 6 or 7 lol. But ya this game is cool I love word games or any fun games lol!
I love this this game it’s very intertertaning. Me and my grandma love to play this but even when she’s gone and not here I enjoy playing this. It get really hard where I’m at the point I gotta use a cheat or buy somthing.I thing if you added a practice thing and I know you aready have a daily one but that’s even harder. So pls it make me and my grandma feel better. It’s great tho!
I would give this game 5 stars, except it has constant ads which are misleading - they usually have a fake X is the corner, and tapping that takes you to the App Store rather than closing the ad. This would be forgivable, except I checked the price to permanently remove ads: $99.99. Yes, you read that right, twice the price of a major PC or console game.
