The game starts out really easy, but it’s a lot of fun and you can do it quickly. It’s a fun way to take a break from a busy work schedule!
Interface and challenges are awesome, my only peeve is acronyms and slang being words but not contractions. I may be too picky but I would rather not have this like FBI and sus actually be counted as words and expected in the program and stick to real words. Lee
Has the creative team that originally developed Wordament left Microsoft or moved on to other projects? Nothing has changed many years now. Zero aesthetic creativity or feature improvements. Every map is literally just going back to the beginning of the same map. Where’s the “Adventure“ in that?Eventually, even endless AI-generated word puzzles start to feel repetitive. Some new scenery would at least create a more interesting illusion of going somewhere. And how about adding an in-app dictionary and other features to enhance the game’s vocabulary building benefits? At the very least, please give us more variety by finally developing a Microsoft Ultimate Word Games app for iOS instead of leaving us stuck with the browser version. If the current “if it ain’t broke, don’t change it” attitude continues, I will probably end my subscription.
I’ve had fun playing this word game, but the developers programmed God as an answer for the theme of Mythical Creatures. Their wrong and I’m gone.
This is basically a pretty fun word search puzzle, that gets progressively harder as you move through the steps. However, I have two big gripes: lately all the ads are 30 seconds long, much longer than I’m willing to sit through. And many of the “words” it expects you to find are so obscure that even with my graduate level vocabulary, I’ve never heard of them. So lately, after I find all the familiar words, I just resort to plugging in every combination that could conceivably be pronounced in English. If I feel like. it, I can look up the meaning, but they’re usually never a word I’d want to add to my vocabulary: the name of some obscure fish, or the archaic Scottish word for something. That makes it into a different kind of game, which I guess is OK too. I prefer the New York Times’ Spelling Bee, but you can’t binge-play that one!
Playing was great until I got to the end of World 4. It froze solid. No way out. Couldn’t even get to daily challenges. I deleted the app and reinstalled. Was good app.... can’t play it anymore. Update: I started from the beginning again, and made it to Puzzle 80. Froze the screen solid. No way out. Done. WTH? Great game until it freezes. Then you have to restart from puzzle 1.
Nice and challenging.
Great game for diversion.
I love word games. This is a good one.
