Edit: Today, when I went to play, all of my existing puzzles had been wiped as if they had never been touched. While I'm glad that we can now replay puzzles in an attempt to get a better score, they have removed any form of showing where you left off. I now have no idea which puzzle I was on last and have to click around to find where I was.

Edit 2: And they've cleared all of my achievement progress with this new change...

This game is generally entertaining, but there are a couple of major issues I have. The first, and largest, would be the use of unheard of words. By unheard of I mean obscure animals, variations of existing "words" (an example being miaow, which apparently is the British version of meow), and some shorthand phrases you'd never expect to see. Another issue I have is after you beat a puzzle you can't play it again, even after some amount of time has passed.

Other than that it's a pretty fun game. I'm sure I'll finish the rest of the puzzles, albeit with some frustration when coming across thing like "sl" and "miaow".

..Revised Review..

It will take you some time to get into the game but when you do it's a lot of fun and solving puzzles becomes very satisfying.

The point of the game is to slide letters into slots that are arranged like in a crossword puzzle. There are letters placed all around the four edges. They can be slid along a vertical or horizontal axis. In order to find the right position of them all you'll have to work with probabilities (common English word endings e.g.) and methods of elimination, like you would in a game of sudoku.

I was quite frustrated at first but now that I got the hang of it it serves as a nice destraction every now and then. As a lot of the words repeat it gets easier to guess them over time. Also, sliding all the stones onto the board and shuffling them around until you recognize one or two words works well when you are stuck.

For a price as low as this, you can't go wrong if you're a fan of word puzzles.

I like puzzle games and have found Lexica both enjoyable and addictive. Although I can't attribute any originality to the authors the format has been well executed here.

My only complaint is the rating system; based on average times, which means a couple of bad games can throw your rating and it can be quite hard to recover. I suppose though after playing many rounds this won't be such an issue.

Also, I would like to know all of the possible ratings in order and their requirements, I'm aware only of competent and skilled.

EDIT: now that I think of it I would like to see the board at the end of a completed session. The "COMPLETED" splash obscures the board.

Clever game, you just need to drag and drop the letters into the right places. The app is lightweight and starts up fast. It's a nice time-filler and easy to get started without any prior experience.
