Update v1.003 - Windows ONLY - Crash reporting system

Hi everyone,

from time to time we get reports that game crashes on the launch or at some point and usually it's quite tedious to catch the bug without proper information.

I'm happy to announce that we have integrated crash reporting system in Ace Of Words.

In general if your game crashes, game will generate 3 files in the same folder where your main executable file is:

  • OceanMedia-Crash-Instructions.txt

  • OceanMedia-CrashReport.txt
  • OceanMedia-CrashDump.dmp

First file on the list is obvious, describes what to do in this case.
Other two files is what we need and just simply email them to support@oceanmedia.hr and we'll take it from there.

This will help us a lot to improve the game and cure terminal bugs.

Let me start out by saying I love games like this.

This one is bad. Very, very bad. There are real words missing from the in-game dictionary, while absolutely fake words are present.

Save your money.

I would enjoy this game except for the fact that it says a lot of words are "not in the dictionary" that ARE in the dictionary.

OVERVIEW
Ace Of Words is a casual, anagram-esque game developed by Zerobit Games and published by Ocean Media LLC. With an easy interface, and an appealing look. The concept is just to try to spell as many words as possible with 6-8 letters available. From there you can spell up to 100 words and you have 120 seconds to get them all.

PROS
+ Easy Achievements Guide To Achievements
+ Steam Trading Cards
+ Steam Leaderboards
+ Colorful
+ Easy Concept
+ Fun

CONS
- Overpriced
- Not A Big Enough Dictionary
- The Highscore Resets Everytime You Restart Game
- Looks And Plays Like A Mobile Port

CONCLUSION
This game is not a big hit nor is it a miss. I have heard of some people having malware problems with this game but I have not experienced that. It is tons of fun, and has a solid concept that is executed fairly well. They just need to work on the dictionary aspect, its a small dictionary that is missing plenty of words and plurals. For example, the word "true" is not in it, nor is "toilets". Yet it has "Hitler" and "Trump". Also $5 for a game with such a small dictionary is absurd. I am not recommending this because I think it is not worth the price, and has too small of a dictionary.

Played for a while, enjoying the game.

Tried to use the word "TRUE" and it's not in the dictionary.

WTF?!?!

0/10

A word game needs to have a valid dictionary.

*Don't think my hours on record means anything, as I just idled it for the cards

I have never played such a non-entity of a game before. Sure, there have been games that made me think certain developers should be legally withheld from making more games, but this, this makes me question the very core essence of a programs existence. It's not so much "how?" it was made, but "why?" it was made. As in, why do I have to install this? Why isn't this just part of Steam as a feature? Or more accurately, why isn't this a free flash game on the internet? Oh wait, it is. In various fashions.

What this game does isn't very unique. Typing and word learning games have been around maybe since they've had visual GUIs and an ability to input text in a computer (and earlier before that with things like Scrabble). Their biggest strides came in the 90's with Mavis Beacon, JumpStart Typing and even Mario himself.

Then people got bored with just mastering their WPMs, and thankfully SEGA fixed that with Typing of the Dead. As they realised there needs to be more of a goal to achieve, and thanks to TOTD, plenty of others have actually tried to be more edutainment rather than just stiff educational tools. They actually offer something, and if not some kind of engaging single player challenge, they have multiplayer, like Words with Friends.

Ace of Words on the other hand, has done nothing to further the cause of mastery of the english language. It's by no means a regression, but trying to think of what this game actually does well enough to be considered a game worth playing... well, there is none. You just... turn it on, play it for 90 seconds and then you're done. Maybe you try it once more, but climbing the leaderboard just isn't enough. There's no progression at all here. It doesn't even attempt to teach you new words.

This is one of the most forgettable games in my library, and what you see is what you get. I can't imagine that there are people clamoring for something so no frills, so lacking in personality, as there are so many more games that would be better to play that actually get you involved.

Better word games on Steam:
Letter Quest: Grimm's Journey Remastered
A pseudo RPG where you learn new words and relearn the definitions of old ones. Collect gems and buy better weapons to make your words hurt more. Really fun progression system.

Typing of The Dead: Overkill
What better way to test your WPMs than when the only way to survive is to go faster? Must go faster.

Bookworm Series
An oldie, but a goodie. Only problem is that they lack modern Steam support/features like the cloud or achievements. Still really quality titles.

This game just gives me an air of people that just didn't try hard enough. Like, just because it was a game about words, they only had to put in the minimal effort. They wanted to remain in their little box and tried to be as inoffensive as possible and be as uncreative as they could, and write it off as "Oh, it's just for some lame educational game! I don't REALLY have to try!". To me, a game being as inoffensive as possible is just as offensive as the worst games ever made. This game is as cynical as they come, and it doesn't even have to say a word.

There was a time when something like Ace of Words would have been useful. That time was the late 1980's. Thankfully, we have moved on, and so should you. To better games.

I love word games. I love the premise of this one. But I don't love this. It's quite possibly the buggiest game I've played, which doesn't make much sense when you consider that it's basically just '97 wordArt with a clock, database, input and a couple of randomisation and check processes.

I don't like to be so critical of small ventures, and I bet I'd love it if I hadn't already suffered 100 crashes... including ones that stop you from playing for days!

I've got quite a few hours into this game, and since I own it I play occasionally to complete the achievements, but it's nothing I'd recommend buying. A very basic game with a terrible dictionary that was previously free.

Most prominently, keystroke detection is too slow. You'll be typing away words like "sates" and "sate" and "seats" and "seat" and their various permutations and possibly only get half of them due to the poor response time.

The GUI is utterly basic with only a handful of options/menu choices, and as a fan of GameHouse games like Text Twist this is pretty disappointing. You can only play, restart, or quit, and there are no other modes besides timed play. Hint feature is unlocked after a certain percentage of words have been entered correctly and can be used an unlimited number of times to get enough words to unlock the next level.

Actually, the Hint feature is the best part about this game; the dictionary is so bad that you'll need it to move onto the next unnumbered level. Certain proper names and places like "Rosie" and "Paris" are in the dictionary, but basic words like "err" and "oes" aren't. I'm not sure why "Tesla" is in this but "Kant" isn't.

If it's in a cheap Steam key bundle, you might as well pick it up. It drops trading cards and has some easy achievements. But this is not worth $3.99.

Got to rank 24 then tried to switch to windowed mode so I went to the main menu after finishing a round. Tried to continue but there was no option to. It erased my progress and reset my score to 0. Quit shortly after.

Pros:
  • Fun game for the first few rounds (if you're into this type of game).
  • Climbing ranks is easy. Decent ego boost.
  • Straightforward. What you see is what you get.

Cons:
  • It gets old very quickly.
  • Climbing ranks is easy because there are very few people who play.
  • Simple interface. Could very well be a basic flash game.
If you want an anagram puzzle, there is an abundance of free-to-play browser versions that are better designed and optimized. This being on sold on Steam at a cost is not entirely justified.
