Not wanting to be snotty or anything, you do realise this is a solo game, not an online freemium junk where you "compete with friends around the world, to see who gets the phrase faster" (even though most of them don't even know how to read and write most of the time)?
This is a simple game that combines match-3 with "wheel of fortune" gameplay. just that. Supposedly with "hundreds" of stages (each stage a phrase to solve).
I'm mildly interested. Was very interested, but the graphs are a bit on the low side (too much flash).
We'll see.

Bought and played this game for a while. Not much variety in the letters that drop and I'm constantly getting letters that have already been played on the board. Interesting game, but I've deleted it and went back to Typeshift.

Good suggestion, I'll keep that in mind for the next update. I'm also considering adding an easy difficulty option.

The letters that drop are random but it won't drop a letter that you have already matched or revealed in the phrase.

When dropping letters, the game chooses from a bag of 5 letters and continues to only drop those 5 letters until you make a match with one of them. Randomly dropping more than 5 letters would make matching very difficult.

When you make a match... lets say "G" for example you may have other letter "G" blocks still in the puzzle grid and you can get rid of them by matching them but the best way is to use the Tesla zap, it will clear half the board and drop all fresh letters.

I do and usually dont care about such thing at all but since game already gives you a score for every game leaderboard kinda makes sense imo. Even if only for my scores.
