Enjoy your puzzles every day
Addictingly awesome
Crabica on 4/19/2018
This game is fun, and really makes you think about your words. It can make you stumped at times, forcing you to step back and rethink the simplest clue. Don’t overthink; just spell!!
Good until half of the free puzzles were taken
angamel on 4/17/2018
I’ve played this for years. I started with 50 puzzles. Reasons for cutting back to 25 other than greed?
Good Game But...
Redking66 on 4/16/2018
Not enough free puzzles
More Spanish puzzles please
Gregcheersykes on 4/15/2018
Great. ***Just wish there were more Spanish puzzles.*** Please update. Thanks! =============================== It's been 6 months and still no new Spanish puzzles. Please? Pretty please or maybe I should say...por favor? Gracias.
Awesome game. However...
egeo9 on 4/10/2018
I really wish I could arrange the remaining tiles in an order I would like. The shuffle button is handy but not quite enough. Great word game that I love to play!
Princess3474 on 4/6/2018
Wish we could play against others
Can we stop the ads?
GrayerBeard on 4/4/2018
I’m a long time purchaser of this game and I have bought puzzle packs. I paid and continue to pay you money, why ads for the one free daily puzzle? I don’t understand the updates that now force me to watch ads. The ad singular. The same ad. Only one ad. It is for woman’s clothing. I’m not interested. I’d gladly buy a yearly subscription to avoid any and all ads. I’m off looking for some alternate games.
Fun and well priced
ProudPapaJD on 4/1/2018
I started playing this in the paper and love the puzzles. Perfect mix of hard and easy. Then I found this app, you get free puzzles everyday but if you want more they have great specials. I got 100 for a buck! My 8yo daughter loves them too and as far as games go at least she’ll be learning new words (hopefully)
An addiction that’s good for your brain
CuriousNetEntity on 3/29/2018
This game is perfect for those Times when you find yourself waiting, or when a quick mental pick-me-up is needed.. I appreciate the voiceover accessibility.
Who knew a chime would be so rewarding?
Teacher1349 on 3/29/2018
I love the challenge. The chime sound is fun and the smiley at the end is sweet! Love it.
Fun game
History Teachet on 3/28/2018
Easy to play, great for all ages.
Sync function
Falakala on 3/28/2018
This app is amazing but its so frustrating how i have to start over when i change phones or worse yet lose all the packs I bought when switching mobile brands. Just sync my progress so i dont have to restart and can buy packs i havent purchased yet! Makes the game play more challenging and fun! I stopped playing strictly because of this downside
Addictive; not hard
WooliBob on 3/27/2018
Most of the arrays are pretty easy, though occasionally you’ll have to think hard. It’s fun to find them. I find I just keep going - a great time-waster.
Boggitty on 3/26/2018
I like this game because it makes me think and it makes me think I am educating myself.
Love it
Swycguy on 3/25/2018
I love this game!!!!
Educational tool
Grannies Mo on 3/21/2018
I have found that seven little words has increased my vocabulary as well as my spelling ability. I think it would be great educational tool for teachers and parents.
CorkVT on 3/19/2018
Every time I “go back” in the app, an ad appears. Intentionally, the “x”in the upper corner is tiny and difficult to press. The longer the ad appears, the thinking goes, the more likely I am to buy something. Nope. And, after years of playing this word game each morning, I am ready to stop. Not because of the game, but because of the annoying ads.
Simple and enjoyable game that never gets old
Nedatsea on 3/18/2018
This app is a nice little time waster when you want to play a game but don’t want it to take too long. It offers a nice little break, working your mind just enough to give a sense of amusement and satisfaction after each puzzle.
Awesome word game that will test your vocabulary.
Luxeoc on 3/17/2018
It’s an addictive game that is whatever level of challenge you want.
Fun game
Digitalshell on 3/16/2018
I love this game! It keeps me thinking and is entertaining. The puzzles are fun and help challenge my brain.
Gabasauruss on 3/15/2018
Fun, but the number of ads coupled with the subscription costs seems quite 'pricey' for a very simple puzzle game.
Pop up ads
Lady embroidery on 3/15/2018
I’m now getting pop up ads after each puzzle. I do not like them and they are hard to close. How can I get rid of them?
Great Game
Jubal357 on 3/14/2018
I play this every night. It help keep my mind strong and is a lot of fun.
Sick of the ads!
Meggo2 on 3/14/2018
I love this game and have played for a long time. I can’t stand the ads after the daily puzzles! Take out the ads and you’ll have a 5-Star rating!!
Not the same as it used to be: UPDATE
WhiskeyJacq on 3/14/2018
Thank you, Blue Ox, for responding to my concerns. Since the last update my issues seem to be resolved. No more ads in Russian. Keep up the good work on all your games! I have been playing all of your games for years and used to love them all. I actually give 5 Stars for creativity, ingenuity and design. However, In the last year, on u Little Words and Monkey Wrench, I have started getting ads in Russian. I live in the U.S. and my iPad is set to English so that is not the problem. Frankly, some of those ads seem a bit sketchy. Of course, I don’t know because I don’t read Russian. My other concern is that in the last year or so the 7 Little Words and Monkey Wrench puzzles have taken a political turn. I don’t play puzzles and games to have political views subliminally, or overtly, suggested, regardless of what those views are. I play them to stretch my brain, to be tested on things that I know, to learn new things and to be entertained. Please, please please go back to puzzles that are not politically biased or oriented. I am on the verge of deleting both games, which is a shame because they are some of the most unique, fun to play word games on the market. I will wait to see if I get a reply regarding these 2 concerns before deleting. Thank you for your interest in and attention to your customers. I look forward to your response.
cfsherry on 3/13/2018
Definitely working a less active part of my brain. It’s combines vocabulary, word definitions, general knowledge across abroad range of subjects (i.e Beckett’s late friend = Go Dot) and patterns. Enjoy.
It used to be great
Alandear on 3/13/2018
What happened to the challenges? The original version was good enough that you had to do a little thinking. The newer version was so simple I didn’t even have to look at the questions; I could just form the words by looking at the letters!
Morning ritual
G'ma Rosey on 3/12/2018
I enjoy playing this every morning. My day always starts with coffee, 7 Words, and a jigsaw puzzle. Being retired, I look forward to simple little pastimes such as this. I find it easiest to solve if I don’t read the clues til I solve a few words
Not Worth Keeping.
ZWorld Slasher on 3/12/2018
A lot of fun, but I finished the freebies in one day. Having the app for one free puzzle a day-- no, I don't think so.
Ruined by ads
JoeCamNet on 3/11/2018
Full screen click through ads after daily puzzles now? The ridiculous amount I've spent on puzzle packs isn't enough? Greed ruins everything.
Way too many ads
Suzwarnr on 3/11/2018
This used to be my favorite app and now it’s not. This used to be the first thing I would go to in the morning and now there is an ad after you complete each daily puzzle. I have spent well over $20 buying puzzle packs. I should not have to deal with stupid ads too. I’m not so interested in this app anymore.
I gave 7LW 5 stars once...
Bink_In_AK on 3/10/2018
The advertising is obnoxious and intrusive. The fact that there is no way to even purchase an ads free version = 1 star! Tell the advertisers that I will go out of my way to never buy any of their products.
Now an advertising platform
scottyinco on 3/10/2018
I used to enjoy this game, and purchased several puzzle packs. Now I get ads popping up between games. Annoying considering I've already given financial support for this game. Close to uninstalling it on principal.
Love the Game, the new ads are intrusive
carddante on 3/10/2018
I love 7 Little Words. I downloaded this game shortly after it was released and have played it almost daily for years. It’s unique, challenging and so much fun. I am here because the new ads that take over the screen are obnoxiously intrusive. I get needing to pay your bills and this helps. I’d much rather have an ad between game screens than an ad on screen while I’m playing. I guess I don’t understand why, after having paid $15-20 on puzzle packs, I’m still being subjected to ads. It’s not enough to make me quit playing, it’s really just a minor annoyance. Keep up the good work, Blue Ox. I do love the game.
Too many ads
Whatever 123 on 3/9/2018
I have been playing for years. Have loved it until recently, when I started seeing ads after every puzzle. I normally play it first thing every day. All of the ads are really annoying me, so I will be looking for another go to app, although it just won’t be the same. You had a great thing going, but have lost my support and appreciation.
Like it
Ma it's on 3/8/2018
Great fun and enjoyment!

Grammarteach on 3/8/2018
Love this game! I play it every night and
Love this game and never get tired of playing it. Great way to pass the time and very challenging!
Tn book lover on 3/8/2018
I have many games on my iPhone & iPad because of my grandchildren but this is the only one I've ever gotten addicted to. I absolutely love this game and play it every day.
Almost there
Mgnovello on 3/6/2018
Needs a dictionary built in, to make this educational.
Fun brain exercise
Dr Dave C on 3/5/2018
Good fun. A new spin on crossword puzzles.
Too many ads
Anne-Clifton on 3/5/2018
I have deleted your app because the pop up ads can NOT be bypassed. You can press the x for an hour and you still can not get back to the game. I play the game for relaxation not raising my blood pressure.
Makes me think!
Suzspuz on 3/5/2018
The clues often make me think about the question in new ways. It’s a good thing.
Mmspurling on 3/4/2018
Love this game, use it a lot and have purchased many sets of games. The new extra daily with ad was something I used, one ad not a big deal. Now there is an ad after each original daily game. I am sure it is to pressure us to buy the unlimited games. Sadly, it s losing favor.
Nk456&$0 on 3/3/2018
I love this game. I play every day along with Red Herring & Monkey Wrench. Your insistence on putting some advertisement about a weather app on these games (upon accessing or finishing) has driven me to delete them from my phone. I’m sorry to see you go, but I refuse to allow the additional unbidden monopoly of my time.
Marlybelle on 3/3/2018
Please offer an ad-free option in the game!
Needs to have a landscape screen
Misscag on 3/2/2018
Great addicting game. I do hate turning my iPad upright. Please add a landscape mode.
Fun game
vbprof on 2/28/2018
Trivia + word game. How can you go wrong? Edited: now force-feeding app ads after playing. Five star review reduced to one.
Daily Puzzles with Full-Screen Ads now?!?
Crochetowl on 2/28/2018
I’ve been doing the daily puzzle for quite a long while now and as of today am getting full screen ads come up. Why???? Will stick with the packs from now on until the infernal ads are taken away from the daily ones.
7 Little Words Big Challenge
