WordJong Sale Ends 4/3/09!

Hello TA-

For the WordJong curious players that are still on the fence, I thought I would give you a quick note that the sale will be ending tomorrow night (price returning to 2.99).


To try before you buy, feel free to play the Lite version!


Thanks to everyone for their support. We have some new games on the way, and look forward to sharing them with this community.

Best Regards,

Ya I picked this one up not too long ago its a nice addition to my page of word games, it fits in nicely with word games that are in the more relaxing side, with no clock and some relaxing music if you want to listen to it.

On the other end of the word game spectrum of a game like Word-fu.

This is my favorite word game on the iPhone. Though I find it is often too easy (so easy, in fact, that I usually collect double par points,) the (seemingly) infinite number of puzzles, and a fantastic concept, have guaranteed this will be on my iPhone for a long time yet. I highly recommend.

This game restricts the words you can use.
Several games I have wanted to use a word that is in a dictionary and it claims it is not. Now you are a word game or an 'almost all the words but we took the impolite words out game'.

Very annoying.

You are correct, we have taken out a few really offensive words from the game. This is to maintain a E-rated style game on any platform we use.

We continually update the dictionary, and feel we have one of the more comprehensive word lists for games out there. If you do have words you feel should be included, please feel free to send us an e-mail at words(at)gameblend.com.

Thanks for your feedback, I hope the lack of certain words have not ruined your experience with the game.

You ought to have stated the deadline on the app's page - some pressure to "act now!" might have resulted in a few more impulse buys. Much like how this thread worked on me (and a few others, from what I can see).

I'm really trying my best to buy it from the UK store but it's had 'item is being updated - try later' pop up for ages now... any idea if this'll change soon?

Ah - it's available again but price is back up - sale has now ended apparently... didn't realise 'night' meant 6:00pm... shame.
