I do recommend this game as in the main it is fun. The music is really annoying however. The most frustrating thing by far is resetting your word if you make a mistake. When things are getting frantic the amount of times I have lost because I have tried a word which was wrong and then ran out of time trying to reset the word back to zero before attempting another word. Perhaps I am doing something wrong but there is always a letter left over which messes everything up. You will know what I mean if you play it. It is a good game for passing time or playing on a laptop.

I love this game. It's perfect for when you just want to chill with something relaxing and it also challenges your mind and keeps you thinking. It starts off really easy to gain points and gets progressively harder as you move up in levels. I love trying to beat my record of points.

I guess it's kindof addictive since I seem to have played it alot and this was mostly all in one sitting. I need to not play it or I will never get anything done.

A fun little word game. Very casual.

The music gets a bit annoying after an hour.
I wouldn't say it's worth 5€ because of how limited it is,so get it for a buck or in a bundle.

Great childrens game, though only good for a few play-throughs. While the gameplay is a classic, it really doesn't hold up much in the face of replayability. Play through it a few times, enjoy the good times, and maybe try it with friends to see if you score better but that's about the extent of it.

When I bought this game I thought it reminded me of some of the word games I used to play on the internet such as Text Twist (Maybe this one was online as well I’m not entirely sure) in which the objective of those kind of games was similar you’d scramble various letters to make a word and acquire points it’s sort of the same thing here however whenever you make a word the letters disappear however more fall down in their place (Kind of like a word Tetris). So when I saw it was on sale I picked it up merely thinking it would only entertain me for maybe a week tops than I would get bored with it an occasionally return to play it whenever it struck my fancy. Oh how wrong I was, I play this game what seems to be constantly. The game is very fast paced and easy to pick up a bit challenging but it’ll keep you coming back for more for some reason.. For $5 it’s too good of a deal and it’s worth every penny and if it’s on sale I recommend picking it up immediately you won’t regret it.

Don't expect anything groundbreaking or novel and you won't be disappointed. This game is exactly the same as it was when it was a flash game available online years ago. That being said, it's also still addictive. The gameplay may be repetitive, as this style of game often is, but it's a good mindless timesink. It's 2 parts relaxing and 1 part "oh hell there's a fiery block from hell that wants to burn the library down".

Only real complaints I have with this game are the lack of achievements and the outdated dictionary. Other than that, I would recommend this game. With all the remakes of classic games and movies that tank horribly, it's refreshing to see a game from my youth that is not a disappointment. It's exactly what you'd expect.

For anyone who wants to improve their spelling/vocabulary or just sharpen their word power and wits, this is the game. It is both fun and addictive. I've played this game for many years and never get tired of it. Whether I'm bored, impatient or stressed out, this is the game that takes the edge off. It deceptively simple but keep at it and it just gets more challenging as you go along. My top score is just over 1 million. Beat me if you can.
