Hi! So I just want to start by saying that I’m not trying to be mean when I give this review. This is a totally honest review that I hope will help you and others to better see the ups and downs of this game.
So first of this is a very relaxing game! The music is calming (although if it bothers you you can go to Wordscapes settings and disable it,) and the backgrounds like ravine, forest, dew, etc. are beyond gorgeous! I also like the daily puzzle and daily gift because sometimes you can get money or other things that can help you reveal letters.
And another thing like Aslo White said is that sometimes words like “aqua” or “mauve” or “sec”are not accepted. These are perfectly legitimate words that are not included. They are real, trust me. And they have words that are not real, like “lite”I don’t know if this is a glitch or something, but I would like this to be fixed. Thank you!
Another thing is that the hints are really expensive, and I am kind of confused ♀️ cause my hints cost 100, 200, or 300 coins. But my little sister has this game on the iPad and she was playing on it, and all I repeat ALL her hints are 50 coins! I am so confused. Why are her hints only 50 coins and I have to pay like 300? This is unfair and I would like the hint price to either be raised or lowered, lowered preferably.
However, there is a feature where you can join teams, chat with people, and get hints. It is so fun trust me! I have met like tons of new friends like this, and I am so happy !! So thank you! You can even compete in tournaments. So so fun!! This is why ur up to 4 stars, so keep up the good work!
So thank you for reading, if you fix the word glitch and especially the hint cost glitch, and you will go up to 5 stars. U have a great game, and I play this almost every day! and I hope both buyers and developers will find this helpful, again, not trying to be hurtful, just telling the truth, sorry if I hurt your feelings in any way. Overall, pretty cool game except those 2 things, would recommend. So don’t waste time, get it!
Stay safe people! Byeee!!
This app is super fun and challenging. I give it three stars for a reason though.
1. You probably see this in a lot of reviews, it doings sync between your devices, which can be very annoying. I’m on a high level on my phone, but on my iPad just got it and am on level one.
2. Ads. The ads in this game are not as bad as Bake it. But no one I know likes ads. So I put it here just so you get a heads up.
3. Real money. This app is very pushy when it. Comes to getting you to buy things. Ads to by things pop up all the time. It’s really annoying.
4. Doesn’t take all the words you can make. On really hard levels when I don’t have enough coins to get a hint, I’ll use unscrambled.com. I use them in the app, it it won’t take the words-even if the are more than two or three letters. I’ll look up the word and it says it a real word. But Wordscapes does take the word.
Besides all of that. The app is pretty good: just watch out for these things.
Thanks for reading!
Update: Really enjoying the addition of teams for the tournament, but the rewards make it not worth the effort. The tournaments are VERY competitive, but you get NOTHING for 4th place. Only the top 3 receive anything at all, and that is HUGELY discouraging. I love the new seasonal crown addition, but again, the rewards desperately need to be rebalanced. You get the same crown points for 30th and 4th. To get 30th doesn’t require much effort, but to get top 10 requires playing almost full time for 48 hours! So, PLEASE, rebalance the rewards to make 4th get more than 10th, 10th get more than 20th, and 20th get more than 30th.
It’s a fun time waster, and way better flow if you spend the $2.99 to get rid of the adds that make it take forever to move from level to level.
I enjoy handheld gaming, so it can be hard for me to grapple with the micro transaction gambling riddled mess that is ‘mobile gaming’ that can sometimes just be simply tapping mindlessly and waiting mindlessly. Wordscapes (as of 2020) provides a real game with real challenge. You don’t have to use the micro transaction system and in fact you are only cheating yourself if you do. I’d even go so far as to suggest you don’t use any of the hint options until you’ve really been stuck for a long while and need a little nudge. There is no subscription nonsense and the ads can be removed with a modest one time fee which is worth it and a great way to show support for the developers. Something like this would have cost 30 bucks or so on a DS/3DS so it’s an absolute steal.
I loved this game until last night. On the weekend challenge “lelu” comes from literally nowhere to win. That’s just total BS. I hate cheaters-from what I’ve read in the forum pages nothing has been done about it-so save your $$. Update: 04/05/20 more cheating going on. So there’s a challenge going on right now (Friday thru Sunday)and “ANDREW” has 11,469 points. There is no
way in the world you can get that many pts. Not even if you played 24/7. I hope the developers look into this because it certainly puts a damper on it for others.
10/26/20 last night someone had +31,000 in the weekend tournament-blatant cheating. You’d literally have to play the every hour for the entire weekend and still not get to level. I’d like to hear from the developers on this.
The ads on this app are horrible. Not only are they too frequent, but they are morally wrong. They have a husband cheating on his wife and the game is selecting “divorce” or “join them”. What a horrible game to promote on a word-game app. Seriously, why would they promote a game like that? Deleting app immediately. I don’t put up with that garbage.
I had this game a couple years ago and deleted it because of the nature of the ads. I decided to give it another try because I really like this game. After a couple weeks, the immoral ads are back again. Deleting again. What a disappointment.
Accepts some shortened words, such as “comp” for computer, but not others, such as “coon” for raccoon. Accepts archaic words, such as “hart” for hart, and foreign plants, such as “bola,” but not a bird seen commonly in zoos (rhea). Accepts some medical terms, such as “gout”, but not others, such as “pons” or “talar” or “nare”. The randomness of the dictionary is incredibly frustrating, but I do have to admit I’m still addicted and waiting for a puzzle with “mustard”.
I’ve enjoyed the game but it is currently showing me an ad for a first-person shooter game. I find that completely inappropriate, especially since I cannot progress pass the ad without aiming and shooting. This ad is upsetting enough to mer that I think it’s time to delete the app.
This is a fun game for me and I tried to put up with the advertisements, but when the last advertisement came up and never let me leave it in order to get back to the game, I am now deleting that game and will not get it again ever!
Limited vocabulary with many words appearing over and over again. It feels like the same puzzles appear over and over again. And it does not accept many actual words. Fun game but would be much better with an expanded vocabulary
