Hi.
[wow]... Sounds like an awesome game. Is there a chance that the game will become available in more languages and maybe danish in the future?

Best regards SLJ.

Hi.
I have briefly looked at the game and it seems to be great. But playing an english word puzzle is very difficult for me since english isn't my main language. So I look very much forward to see if danish will be added. I love the interface in the game.

Okay, while playing Ios games is a bit of a pain at the moment owing to my severe lack of a battery, I did give this one a try last night, but  into a few issues.

I tried the single player first to attempt to get a hang of the game play, but I couldn't complete even one puzzle, and I wonder if there is a bug somewhere.
One problem I had was that I mixed up the swipe gestures, and so kept on using letter bombs when i didn't mean to, and I wonder if these somehow made the puzzles unwinable, since in  puzzle I tried, I ran  words  just physically weren't there.

For example, I did the fruits puzzle and was left to find the words "raisen" and "apricot" but there wasn't one single letter r on the entire board (though lots of spaces hit by those bombs).

This kept happening. On the zoo animals puzzle I had to find the word "elephant" but there was no  l next to any e vertically or horrizontally (I checked by swiping up, down, left and right from each e), ditto with s and t when I needed to find the word  stallion on the farm puzzle.

I wonder if there is something off in how the bombs work in single paye   player mode? Needless to say, if I can't  complete a single player puzzle I don't know about trying a multiplayer game, though I would be interested to  see what attempts have been made to level the playing field given that using vo one does not have  visual scanning and overview  which sighted players have.


One access feature I would like to see, is some way of disabling the ability to  accidently swipe yourself  off the gameboard, either  that or perhaps a beep in the last row or column, since I kept missing the  edge of the board and losing my place, which meant examination of the board systematically was  more difficult perhaps than I should have been.

I will give the game another try and we'll see how I get on next time, and hopefully I'll be able to create db  entries for both games too.

I got the app, I’ll give it a shot. You guys need to improve your SEO though. It wasn’t easy to find the app using the App Store search. I had to come here to get the link.

Hmmm Saphira, I did give the game another quick try and had the same problem, I was looking for the word parakeet, but though I flicked up down left and right from each p, I never found p a together.

I do have diagonal words turned off in settings so I don't think it is that, maybe I'm missing something, or maybe it is my Iphone five.

Btw Ironcross, I did find wordwar in the ap store by searching wordwar, though interestingly enough the mod version of the game, battlecats didn't show up at all, even in the related links section to word war.
