I like the solo "campaign" and the new features, but I don't see why they needed to make a whole sequel instead of just revamp the original.

I have to admit I hate words with friends, word feud is the much better designed product, but this does sound appealing.

Edit :requires IOS 10.0. I'll have to get on my android.

The problem I think is that there have been SO MANY versions of WWF over the years, through separate iPhone and iPad versions, and a Universal version, and free with ads versions, and paid versions, and re-releases after Zynga bought it, etc, etc. It was a total mess. So while I'm normally in favor of simply updating an app like you say, in this case I'm actually glad they just got rid of all those other versions and now there's just ONE version of the game (for now, lol) to clear up the confusion. Plus it's smart that it's cross-play with all the older versions, so even people who own one of the older ones who aren't even aware there's a new one can still play just like normal with everyone else.

bit disappointed by this. I mean the solo mode looks good!, but needs network connection? And the colour themes I'm not a big fan of either, not sure why Zynga have gone this way going for pink and purple colours for their games.

Probably marketing? You'll get a much bigger push if it's a sequel than if it's an update, I think.

I'm not really the demographic though.

Yeah the UI is not much better looking. Some customization would be cool
I also don't understand why you need a network connection for a solo AI mode.
It seems that the AI is "thinking" from the server.
Also frustrating speed-wise: youd think the computer could make its move fairly quickly
