I like how you combined the elements from match three games like the glass and boxes with a word game. Really neat!

Enjoying this so far, but have a few suggestions, if that's OK:

I noticed some words you draw out don't take the first time. Not sure if that's a touch isssue.

I think it'd be nice to see an 'undo' key?

Definitions are odd sometimes: for example "sue" defined it as the biographical name. Also, I noticed I was allowed to use proper (capitalized) names like "Greeks" which is fine, just that in word games, it's uncommon.

I think the scoring gets me the most, though. For example, on the first couple of falling heart levels, i finished in maybe three or four moves (quite accidentally) but didn't score enough for three stars (over 1,000). I had to go back and play the levels a few times and pretty much force myself to make long-ish words just to get three stars. That may be intentional, I just thought it was a little unbalanced.

Apart from these minor niggles, this is a fun take on word games!

Also worth noting: the option to choose to submit words by tapping isn't 'sticky.' When I reopen the app, the options isn't maintained from previous session.

To clarify on the 'undo' thing, I think that's probably not such a good idea. However, plenty of word games with similar dynamics allow you to at least cancel what you've spelled out before you submit it, just in case you change your mind.

Thanks to LordGek for recommending this to me. I am really enjoying it. It is a simple enough word game that is nicely presented with a good assortment of word challenges. The Game Center support is very good too.

Gah!

This update RUINED THE GAME!

Not just turning it into freemium crap, but now all the levels are near identical and boring as all heck.
