Under rating threshold (show) Congrats nerdook on your lovely new wife! Maybe if you spell her name (Carrot) you should give mondo bonus points? Anyway, fun little game. Love the frantic fast pace action of the first game type.

Under rating threshold (show) Excellent game, but I think there should be some clearer instructions. I was thinking that every letter had to be adjacent to another, but it turns out they can be anywhere on the board.

Developer response from nerdook

why would they have to be adjacent? lol. and yup, they can be combined from anywhere on the board. you can even type the letters in through the keyboard.

Under rating threshold (show) As one of the enthusiasts of this game, let me give some considered feedback: I love word games, and this is a really good one. The concept is great, the scoring makes sense, it's easy and fun to play. The timed and non-timed options offer different challenges, as do the highscores for single word and total score. Still, I think the game could be improved, taking it from 4/5 to 5/5. My suggestions would be: (1) Make sure bonuses are always achievable after shuffling the letters (e.g., bonus for word beginning with B, there should be a B after shuffling). (2) Improve the letter selection algorithm. You shouldn't suddenly find yourself with 6 U's... (3) Balance out the bonuses: the multipliers are MUCH better than the bonus scores. Single vowel words are weak, so this bonus shouldn't be repeated several times during the game. (4) Finally, separate the highscores for timed and untimed games, as they are very different. Thanks for a great game :-)

Under rating threshold (show) Can we get some idea of how it scores words? It looks like longer words are almost always better than words with higher-scoring letters, but it's unclear exactly why. Does the base score of the letters get multiplied by the word length?

+ - !

(3)

Developer response from nerdook

the base score of the word gets multiplied by a square of the word length.

Under rating threshold (show) Great game!!! Quite unusual for Nerdook to make a game like this. This game is somewhat, difficult. The one time I got the two letters I was looking for (To spell out "Seagulls") I had the "Sea" and the "lls" part, but not the "gu" so I was sad. Great game!!! 999.99(+0.01)/1

Under rating threshold (show) How does the letter randomizer work? Several times in the same game I had no consonants at all. and most of the rest of the game I had no more than 4 in the whole grid. There also seems to be no preference for common letters.

Under rating threshold (show) When it says smth. like "start the word with letter 'e' to get a bonus", and I press shuffle, then there is a very high chance that there will no be letter 'e' in the new set so I won't be able to complete the quest. IMO, either the bonus quest must change upon shuffle, or the shuffled set must satisfy the quest.
