words, words, words
games okay but needs more instuctions. People who enjoy word search may find this game too simple

I wanted to like it more
It seems to be a little bit of a cross between a word search and the "Chuzzle" game, if anybody is familiar with that. The words you are to find are at the bottom of the screen and you need to drag the line of letters either across or up and down to form the word. Nice idea but I lost my interest rather quickly; and I LOVE word games. I think a beginning speller/word seeker might find this more enjoyable than I.

Well. I don't do reviews, but...
Goodness, this is an easy game to review; I almost didn't have fun at all.
Great idea, with lots of bells and whistles, but the actual games are just frustrating.
This is not a thorough review, but should give a bit of an idea.
There is a mode where you race to find all the words in headlines against the clock, which is fun but easy as heck, so becomes tedious after about four headlines.
The "word search" mode is not a standard style, and requires you to move entire columns and rows of letters around to arrive at your word (interface is easy, though!). May be very fun for some people, but I just found it tedious and frustrating, especially in the timed area.
The "relax" mode is just to find words which suit a given category, and that would have been fun had there been more words in the game dictionary.
In that last mode, a "facsimile" or "whiteboard" apparently aren't "office objects" (yuh-huh!), and neither are a "boardroom" or a "secretary" (yes, a secretary can be a thing as well as a person), a "coccyx" isn't a part of the human body, and a "vacuum" and a "washer" don't belong to the category of "appliances", but a "washingmachine" (yes, all one word) does. (Should have tried "vacuumcleaner".)
Cool trophies and stuff to win, but I couldn't be bothered finishing my hour, because it was just disappointing. Sorry, devs, I think this is a fantastic concept, but needs some testing by word buffs.
I did like the "studio upgrades" that you buy after completing levels, but didn't get much redecorating done. :)
Frustrating. I do like this developer and hope that they take these great ideas and make them into something new, taking suggestions of players and testers...

I got frustrated with this game immediately upon starting it. I was confused as to the directions, with very little instruction and no tutorial. I didn't like the "word create" instead of "word find" direction of the game. Maybe someone else will like this.
