Under rating threshold (show) PART TWO By my book the best you can achieve in one round is about 45000. So if you were very good you might average 40000. So 40000 x 15 = 600000. What about the bonus levels. My best score is 66000 on one. So lets give an average of 50000 which I think is too high. However 50000 x 7 = 350000. So a grand total of 950000 doubled equals 1900000 (1.9m). But in every game you will get words that have 3 or 4 solutions. That is it ends in -ive so it could be give hive dive jive live for example. You will have to get a hint or guess at least 2 or 3 times on average. So you can probably discount 50000 for those. Again with the bonus round the words get longer so take more time to type and of course letters are missing so I reckon thats another 50000 off. So that leaves 1.8m.

Under rating threshold (show) PART ONE I have probably wasted a month of my life on this game and played more than 200 games. My highest ranking is about 242 and yet I have been able to get 45 words in a row in less than 3 guesses. Mainly using hints and luck rather than any cleverness. I have also got through 15 levels without using hints. I am a native English speaker. I am a touch typist. I have a Masters Degree. So why cannot I acheive a higher ranking.

Under rating threshold (show) Cute game, though like all word games, my horrible spelling makes it harder. ;)

Under rating threshold (show) @labridi: Although you can submit practically any English word, all the Mystery Words you need to solve are handpicked and shouldn't include any distinctly British or American words. Some words, like 'cipher/cypher', may have alternative spellings though. @wisygig: The game uses ENABLE wordlist to validate the words player submits, but the Mystery Words are handpicked (about 5,000 of them). @GameKultist: We salute you! ;)

Under rating threshold (show) Problem--you can't clear certain letters, only the last letter or all of them; this makes for slower guessing. As for the vocabulary, some of the accepted words are "British". The game accepted punty, cosher and cipher. None of these are common in "American" English. That isn't a criticism, but it does make it more difficult for some of us.

Under rating threshold (show) Nice game, however, the levels are in the wrong order. Since you have to submit an actual word, having a letter revealed actually limits the amount of information you can obtain, at least for a human player. As an aside, it'd be nice to know what word list the developers are using.

Under rating threshold (show) Good news everyone! The mystery word dictionary is now updated. No more old English or byzantine vocabulary to suffer. @Kyriva: use the "X"-button on top left corner to pause the game at any time.

Under rating threshold (show) I love word games but it uses such byzantine vocabulary it's a bit unreasonable to expect anyone to get through it without guessing.

Under rating threshold (show) Good game, it would be better with a break between levels though. An in level pause would be silly, but letting players choose when to start the next level (don't show them the letters yet) would be good.

Under rating threshold (show) Some of the words seem to be Middle English according to online dictionaries. Shouldn't all the words be modern english? After all, nobody says "betwixt" any more...

Under rating threshold (show) at later levels the time limit is too short in my opinion, making us need to just ramble in words instead of actually deducing them with the hints given. I like to try and think of the possibilities with the given options, but as you give me ni time for that it becomes more luckbased now, pity. btw, nonnativespeaker here, and i enjoy it

Under rating threshold (show) So, I love it, but the word-entry system is anti-intuitive; I feel like I should type "fire" not "ire". 4/5.

Under rating threshold (show) Hi all, thanks for the feedback! We'll work on the dictionary. However, a big part of the wordspecting challenge is (and will be) figuring out some of the more obscure mystery words just by narrowing down the possible letters. Think of it like cracking a code, where the meaning of the word is irrelevant.

Under rating threshold (show) Woot, another awesome word game, as usual withnew word games like this, the dictionary needs to be edited. For you non-native english speakers who complain that it is to hard for you, DON'T PLAY IT! But for the love of God, don't down-rate it because of that. This is the reason so many good word games have such crappy ratings!

Under rating threshold (show) Great game, but some of the words are really ridiculous (and this is coming from a person in america :P). Anyways to anyone complaining that it's hard for non native people to play.. well that's the nature of a word game. You can't rate a game lowly because the game sticks to one language, as it should

Under rating threshold (show) You might want to go through some of the words again. Recently, the work I had to guess was "kikes", which is an anti-semetic slur. So, yeah...

Under rating threshold (show) giving you letters in the middle or end of the word makes this extremely difficult even for a native english speaker.

Under rating threshold (show) wtf is a "krona"?! *checks* a silver and cupronickel coin and monetary unit of Sweden, equal to 100 öre. Abbreviation: Kr., kr. How was I ever supposed to be able to guess that? There aren't even english words that start with "K"!

Under rating threshold (show) Please. Paua is totally a word and I should be allowed to guess it. I suck at the ones where they give you a letter because I can think of hardly anything to guess. I agree with wisygig.

Under rating threshold (show) PART THREE I even went through the exercise of quiting each level when my score was not up to scratch and ended up with about 800000 which of course is not doubled but that would be 1.6m if you had a lot of luck. Like I made for myself. So A) It would be impossible to get above 5 million but 3 people have top scores above 5 million. B) It is very very difficult to get above 2 million in my view but possible if you get a lot of luck over 15 rounds Or were a scrabble champion or the like who could touch type at 60 wpm and think at 500 wpm.. C) Maybe I am just too slow or more stupid than I think, but I reckon there must be a cheat there somewhere but I can't work it out. But what do other people think? Other than that a very good game, obviously some of the words stink but thats to be expected.
