Completely agree....apparently the people that came up with this silly game are not able to do word games or else they would have noticed how confusing it is and how it really doesn't fulfill as a replacement for the other word game they killed.
The former word game I think you are referring to is Spell Bound, and fyi that it is still available on the Arkadium game website for free. Do need to see some ads before you can play it though. Much rasier to understand than Scramble Words!
I agree this game is frustrating yet I play it everyday because I like it. My problem with it is when I click on a letter--it doesnt alway go up on the board and it is hard to go fast enough when you have to click on the same letter many times and even respell the words again and again......is this just a problem with my mouse? or are others having the same problem???
I really like this came, but it is so frustrating. I don't understand the timing or the scoring.
When I fainally got to Round 4, it gave me 2 seconds one time & 23 seconds another time.
Also when I know I have typed a word, it doesn't show.
Why does the game finish the words for you when I have time to complete them myself.
When I complete a round, I sure would like to see all the possible words that could have been made or at least keep the word screen up so I can look at the letters more casually & try & figure out what I missed.
