The little icon on the right corner (the wand) shows, if a word exists - and that helps a lot! Especially non native speakers

I was talking about the other Guy who said it was boring...

Ok, after over an hour of sheer frustration and being left with the strong desire to just delete and forget this game exists, a word of warning to others: do not purchase if you happen to have more than one iOS device linked to your Gamecenter account, and more than just yourself using every single one of your devices. (i.e. You'd like to play one game on one device, and your wife/husband/child/sibling/gifted pet/trained extra terrestrial/etc. would like to play a separate game on another.)

I've seen short-sightedness, incompetence, ill-conceived ideas, and just blatant downright stupidity, but this really takes the cake. Great game as noted, but whoever thought it was a good idea to "hard sync" one game to all your GC-enabled devices, (instead of, say, use bloody iCloud where we have the option to turn it off?) whether you choose to "no thanks" or not, and furthermore infuse the concept with an inordinate amount of bugs resulting in various oddities occurring on top of the idiocy itself, should really be thanking their lucky stars that public flogging, stoning, tar-and-feathering, and various other fitting forms of public humiliation are no longer in fashion.

Holy crap, what in the f are you rambling about? Wow. You could have said what you needed to say in 2 sentences. What is wrong with you?

I can see that you are slightly upset.
I just can't see WHY you are upset.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

From what I can gather from that unnecessarily convoluted post, it seems Gabrien has had the game running on two devices under the same Apple ID, and the progress made in one game has simply overwritten the other without warning. Or possibly somebody used the "Wipe Data" option in the menu and that affected all the devices with the game on it; it is hard to tell exactly what the problem is here. :P

Looks interesting, but I can't figure out from the description if it's third-Gen compatible. Anyone out there who can chime in? After Minigore 2 flipped the bird to us impoverished, 3GS-having plebs, I could use some good news.

All I know is that it plays great on my iPod Touch 4G, hope this can help someone.

Ok, sorry for the misunderstanding.

If anyone wants to play multiplayer, add me on Game Centre: Andy C83

I'm currently whipping Gabrien's butt. At Spellwood.

The game play has a strong resemblance to the recently released "Word Wonders: The Tower of Babel". WW is pretty good and is currently free. Has anyone played both and can compare the two? WW is single player only.
