    Ok

    When the game first came out, I wanted it so bad. I thought it would be like the kindle version of that letter switching game so I wanted it. After I bought it, there were some glitches. Previous games wouldn't save, there were some weird words you would never think of in a million years, and high scores didn't save. Then the game got an update and is better than ever. When you leave the game, the next time you open it up, the game is still there and saved. Your highscores will save also and there are some little sound effects too. The words are easier to figure out (no words like bgh and trp. There are actually REAL words now! (: ) Anyway, the app is way better. I play it with my friends all the time and we enjoy it. It is a good pass the time game and gets you thinking. I would say this game is overall a good game with a few minor glitches. Hopefully those will be fixed in the future.

    Not well developed

    This is a fun game, but there are too many obscure words, it doesn't save scores, and there is no way to pause and get back to the game without having all the data lost. It doesn't seem like a big deal, but it is really frustrating. There has to be a similar game with better features available.

    This is NOT Text Twist

    I was hoping Word Twist would live up to my experience with Text Twist, but alas, it is a poor substitute. It does not allow relatively common words but does allow many, many words no one has ever heard of. You can't beat the level unless you guess all the words. The response time of the buttons is slow, and the timed version doesn't allow enough time to win, especially with the obscure words. I deleted this from my Nook. Try Word Mix instead!

    Ugh!

    I do not consider random groupings of letters to be words. The real game is "what strange "words" will this thing come up with this time?"
    Also, as mentioned by other reviewers, sometimes it will reject a fairly COMMON word that IS in the dictionary. I do NOT recommend this app.

    Not Worth a Penny!!

    I love word games (we need Scrabble!) But this game was only .99 cents so I thought I'd give it a try, it is very flawed! Don't bother with the high score, it's only saved for ten minutes. The graphics are dull and cheap looking. The buttons and the way it's set up makes it very difficult to play. Most importantly, it sucks. I hope I at least save at least one person from buying this, because I wish someone had warned me. One star is generous.

    Could be great, but needs work.

    The buttons stick, the scores don't save. The main problem I have with the game is the dictionary. It is frustrating to put in a word like "power" and have it tell me there is no such word.

    The game is fun but words that may not exist and everyday words

    The game is fun but words that may not exist and everyday words it say are not in the dictionary. sometimes the game is dissappointing.

    NO WIFI required to play!

    I took my NOOK when I went to visit a friend for 5 days and we sat and played this game together every night! The only things we didn't like was all of the bizzare words (that I can't imagine anyone would know) that were required in order to complete a level successfully. She doesn't have WIFI so this game was great to be able play. It also convinced my friend to buy 3 NOOKS for Christmas! Too bad B&N doesn't offer a commission!!

    Only fair

    This game is good for keeping your brain cells working. Unfortunately the dictionary needs some SERIOUS updating. Everyday words like water are not recognized. There has to be a better option out there.

    Very disappointed

    The games don't save and high scores clear out way too soon. It allows abscure words and many times not common words. I have updated at least once and problems are still there. Please fix them because I do love the game.

    Thumbs down!

    Thought this game would play like Text Twist 1and2. Not even close. Dictionary is screwy and legit words are denied. I've never heard of most of the words used.

    Not bad

    It's fun and great to pass the time but very frustrating when words such as: water, power, react, alone, create, and crate are not recognized, yet other words I've never heard of are. It needs a dictionary upgrade now

    Not worth the money

    Program does not recognize common words and it is inconsistent about accepting plural versions of the same word discovered within a single "round". I love word games; but this one is not really player friendly.
