I love this game. It's an older game, maybe an updated dictionary would be nice but it's still a great game. One of my favorite go to word games!

I've been playing this game for years. Have worked up to Level 77 and have put off replacing an old, dying computer because I can't bear the thought of losing all my progress on this game. It is a fantastic word game, and helps keep my mind sharp and active. Love it.

This game helps me play Scrabble. I adore word games and this is a good game to play to learn how to place words on the grid. If you like Scrabble but can't spell, you'll LOVE this game. It's also an educational game, because you learn to see words and how they fit together. It might help with crosswords, too. Accessibility notes: Due to the nature of the game it has to be played with the mouse, but you don't have to hold down the button to drag the word, just click, move, click. Also, if you hover your mouse over a letter already on the board, it will highlight the letters in the words on the list that contain that letter! It also works just fine with the Windows accessibility tool, mousekeys. It has excellent feedback - it makes noise when you click on words, when you place words, when your word list gets to the top in timed mode, when you form a new word, if you click in the wrong place, or when you discard a word. When you hover over a menu button, it either highlights or changes colors. The one thing it does that is annoying, is in timed mode. When your word list is at the top, the words shake. This game has timed mode that is relatively fast, and untimed mode, which for me is the most fun. I wish all games had the option of an untimed mode. I do wish the game had a way to check definitions, as there are some words I have never seen before, and don't recall what they are after exiting the game.

I have got to level 82 and don't seem to be able to get any further, which is not a problem. But I get so frustrated at "guessing" which English words it will accept. Spoils what should be a brilliant game. Just tried to enter "nought" which is says is invalid! I give up!

This is the best word game I've seen for a long time. Hoping we'll see an updated version soon, where we can add other players (and high scores for such) and start a new game without having to use the "back" arrows.

I have just bought this game, and have been playing it daily. It is like a cross word but the words are given and you need to find the letters to link them up. There is a relaxed mode and a timed mode both have there own challenges. The further levels you pass the degree of difficulty increases. It is not only challenging but you need to think fast and use strategy to see that the letters link up. It is a word and a strategy game.

Exceptional game. Please update word acceptance. The word "lense" is not accepted. A lot of lense wearers will be really surprised!! No reason not to buy the game, just make the Game House tecs aware of the problem.

At last after 3 years of on off playing i have reached level 100. Ok it a isn't fast action play or great graphics, but for interest in the long term it's one of the best games ever. I love it , it challenges me keeps my brain active and entertains me To reach the higher levels you need to amass as many hints as possible to use at the more difficult levels.I am now at level 100 and still have 47 hints left, so hopeful that given time i will get even higher.The only chamge I would make to this game is to have an undo button as sometimes you drop a word in and can see at once it is in the wrong place (blocks using a 3 word bonus square etc)

I've had this game for several years, but I still come back to it over and over again. Of all the word games I've tried, none has the playability and entertainment of this one! This is a great choice if you enjoy word games!

Fun Game! I usually play alone but sometimes my husband joins in and we have a great time!

This game is a your own crossword. You get to start it with whatever word you want. The best part is getting to the tougher levels it takes longer to win. I am on level 64 right now. So I have to put over 80 words on the board..... I love to use my brain.

This has been one of my favorite games for years - there's simply nothing better. I was devastated to discover that it would not run after my OS updated, and I expected a Lion-compatible version long before now. The fact that I check this page every day, hoping for that precious update, is the highest compliment I can give.
