Under rating threshold (show) Major bug in the game: If you don't allow the animation for the milestone to play out, you will not be awarded bonus time. So if you type too fast like me, you are liable to not get your bonus time making, these challenges impossible. If you let the animation play out then you're fine. But this means, deillibarly going slow if you are a fast typer.

Sorry about that! A new version of Proke has been uploaded which should fix this problem.

Under rating threshold (show) How to get 10 words with Q and X - Keep restarting until you get to the prefix QUA, and use the following words: quadplex, quadplexes, quadrioxalate, quadruplex, quadruplexed, quadruplexes, quadruplexing. After that you will have to keep scrambling until you come to a usable suffix. I'll list some words that you can use with some available suffixes, but i'm sure there are more. -ELY: superexquisitely, overexquisitely, exquisitely, exquisitively. -IDE: sesquioxide. DES: sesquioxides. -TES: exquisites, quixotes. -IVE exquisitive. -TIC: quixotic, unquixotic. You can also use overexquisite and overexquisitely if you come across the OVE prefix. There are about 20 words here, press + if it helped so others can see.

Developer response from pouchmouse

Just wait until you see what Rank 8 is like. =) I'm guessing the hardest part of Rank 7 is coming up with the fifteen words that have both 'w' and 'k'? If that's the case, this list might help: http://www.morewords.com/contains-by-length/kw/

Under rating threshold (show) Excellent game. A mix of vocabulary and planning. I learned a lot more words by just typing the root. Like Starts with ''inc'' and you type inc. 5/5 It would be even better if it could be like Edmus where you could see other people too! :D

Under rating threshold (show) I wish the objectives were global achievements rather than stages. I've had great games where I've accomplished about 2/3 of the objectives I get at every level.... and am disappointed that I now need to have that same great game againt to achieve the same thing again.

Under rating threshold (show) I remember playing this game with friends when it was published on Kongregate. I thought it was awesome! Making this a BOD, however makes me think it might not be a good choice for other kong users that will have trouble because English isn't their first language. Hardly, and "easy" badge for them.

Under rating threshold (show) I really wish you could get more points for longer words. Sometimes I can think of words 10 to 15 letters long but I'm better off with shorter words, as they give the same points and are faster to type. "We don't discriminate" is kind of untrue, as longer words are given less points per letter. I put in a huge word and go up a few blocks, then put in a small word and go up a few screens. Doesn't feel right.

Under rating threshold (show) To solve the '10 words containing Q and X' problem... 1. Restart the game until you are handed a 'Begins with QUA...' - this can take a while ;) 2. Use these 9 words - QUAdplex, QUAdplexes, QUAdratrix, QUAdratrixes, QUAdrioxalate, QUAdruplex, QUAdruplexed, QUAdruplexes, QUAdruplexing. 3. Scramble until you get a nice easy 'Starts with...' 4. Type some quick 4-letter words for 'Starts with...', this changes the 'Ends with...' each word. 5. Then use the ENDING of one of these words: quixotiCAL, exquisitenESS, quinatoxINE, quinotoxINE, quinoxalINE, quixotISM, exquisITE, quixotIZE, quixOTE, exquisitenesSES, exquisiTES, quixoTIC. Enjoy.

Under rating threshold (show) How about some quick back-up and erasure keys? It's pretty annoying to type a 15-letter word, see that I've already used it, and have to backspace over the whole thing.

You can use the up and down arrow keys to browse through the previous words you've entered, or clear the entry field entirely.

Under rating threshold (show) Fun until you get to the hard badge. Then, just like the comment on top says, you have to restart over and over until you get "qua-." Then, it's a matter of switching back and forth between the game and a word list before your time runs out. This is also true, to a lesser extent, for the W and K words. I'd prefer to build a higher tower, or collect more bubbles, or something.

Under rating threshold (show) To make 15 words with w and k for rank 7: Shuffle until you get the ending -ked. Then input the following: Waked, Walked, Wanked, Warked, Wauked, Wicked, Winked, Worked, Howked, Gawked, Whacked, Whisked Wracked, Wreaked, Wrecked, Wricked. That's enough to pass. KEEP THIS ALIVE!!

Under rating threshold (show) The Q/X thing feels really silly to me, to be honest. I simply can't imagine anyone other than a literally world-class Scrabble player (and maybe not even) completing that challenge without looking up a word list, and I feel like looking up word lists defeats the whole point. Also, it's really not well-balanced against the other challenges in terms of difficulty--even with the word list in hand, simply restarting for the required QUA-prefix took me more time than the other challenges combined. Also, this Hard badge is currently one of the 20 least earned badges on the site nearly 6 months after release, so it's not like I'm the only one who finds that challenge unreasonable...=/

Under rating threshold (show) If you need help with the "10 words with 'x' and 'q'" objective, go to http://www.morewords.com and search for "*x*q*" and note down those words, then search for "*q*x*" and note done those words. Should make things a bit easier.

Under rating threshold (show) The last rank is really tough. My suggestion is to have this open and available to look at at all times: http://words-with.com/q-and-x.html, Even with that though, you gotta be fast and lucky with (mostly) your suffixes. GOOD LUCK!!!

Under rating threshold (show) If you have a game based on vocabulary, you need to include a pretty large vocabulary in your lexicon. I lost time and points for "verisimilitude", "multiplicitous", and one other word I can't recall now.

Developer response from pouchmouse

I've checked, and "verisimilitude" is in the game's dictionary. "Multiplicitous" wasn't, though, so I'll see about adding it.

Under rating threshold (show) There should be a pause button, but if you paused it, it would restart your combo and change the suffix/prefix when you unpause it, that way it cannot be abused.
