Very good word game. Has a large dictionary, so it does recognize unusual words. I like the different skins you can choose from, although I only find a couple to be very readable when trying to find words quickly. My one gripe is that I can't figure out how to enter text for my initials when I get a high score. No keyboard comes up and tapping on the letters doesn't do anything, so all my initials are "AAA".
I do like the game a lot. Very bummed that I lost over400,000 points a little bit ago by not remembering to hit resume. I'd hit the arrow to play like I usually do to play my game, it was the wrong arrow. It ended up being the arrow for new game. Also it wont allow me any words containing more than eight letters.
Dropwords could be an awesome game. It's really only missing a couple of things. 1) It's dictionary is missing words. It doesn't make sense because online dictionaries abound. 2) It doesn't have a score board. You only find out your score IF you manage to land among the top scorers. 3) Inconsistent word rules. Sometimes you can use proper nouns and foreign words and other times you cannot for no apparent reason. If these 3 things were fixed Dropwords would be a great word game. As it is, it's just ok.
Screen size Recently changed tablets and the game screen isn't compatible with my Galaxy S2 8 inch screen. I've lost the pause button from the top of the screen. (Lost the entire top half inch of the display, mute button, header and pause). Might go looking for a different version of this game.
Bad performance I want to like this game, but it has really bad performance. As in, on two different high-end phones with powerful CPUs and lots of memory, it looks like a PowerPoint slideshow with single-digit FPS, while draining the battery and hogging the CPU. Edit: I'd happily try the sequel out, if it was available in the market for my phones. Too bad it's not available for either.
Thanks for a great app. Also expands your vocabulary - if you make yourself look up the words you didn't recognise, have installed Dictionary. Com as well so I don't forget the good ones to use when I get stuck. Great fun to play.
1. Updated Google libraries.
2. Removed Papaya integration that was not working properly.
3. Fixed bug in letter distribution (where distribution was being reset after the initial board fill).
