Fantastic puzzle app. It feels great, looks great and plays great. Since I got the game free, I'll buy the coin doubler now to show some support, and buy the puzzle packs as soon as fiscally possible.

Loving this game. But for such a simple game graphically and with no music, it just destroys my battery on a 4S. A lot of fun though!

Updated my iPhone from a 4s to a 6 and lost well over 600 credits. Kind of a bummer to a really cool game.

That is a bummer! I didn't lose any when I upgraded, so I don't know what happened.

Latest update v1.7.4:

If you want to buy the collected classic packs as a cheaper bundle, do it before updating. After the update all bundled packs are gone.

They say there are more ways to earn coins, but I haven't seen any more ways yet. You get the same tiers of coin packs if you choose to buy more.

Prices went from 220 for old daily puzzle packs to 290, but you still only get 5 coins for solving a puzzle (10 with the doubler).

Now when playing a level an annoying "free hint" countdown timer pops up on the side, offering a free hint if you watch a video. When the countdown ends it disappears. Then reappears a few seconds after you form another word.

My biggest problem with this game is still that you can't pick any puzzle to play from a pack that you buy or unlock.

In all, I really regret updating, and I'm considering deleting it, even though I bought it at launch and bought the coin doubler.

If these changes were brought about due to feedback, I have no idea who they were listening to.

Totally agree. Free hint pop up is hugely annoying, plus after finishing the daily I got prompted to watch a video to earn coins. This all even though I have nagging popups disabled in settings.

I respect their right to try and make money, but these changes have made the game much less enjoyable for me.
