Don’t get what you pay for

ufydyuv on

For a paid version, I would expect a lot more categories and answer options to be included. Very disappointing. Do NOT pay for this app!

Game is ok

fortnightrulz like crazy on

You have to pay $2.00 for the game and you have to pay if you want to play any modes like Disney parks, video game characters, and etc. Don’t waste your money

Get this game!!!

Brozega on

Absolutely ridiculous that I paid for this app but in order to play it I have to buy every pack within the game. I can’t even play it. It completely scams you

Nothing happens

Black screen / Place on forehead

iyalmonte on

Everytime I click on a deck it tells me to place in forehead but the same screen won’t go away ! I try to tap on it or something , the screen just goes black and I’m forced to open and close the app . I haven’t gotten one chance to even play with the app. Super disappointed


Natttyf on

The decks don’t get updated. You get the same words over and over. They need to update and add words weekly if not daily. Can only play like 3-4 rounds before getting all the same words again. They really need to continue to add words to the decks.


Jkrojas31 on

Terrible!!! I bought 2 different packages and nothing is working!!! If I can give a 0 I would !


ChoushMcGoush on

I frequently get a black screen and have to close out the app and reopen. I tried deleting the app and reinstalling… didn’t help. I clicked on contact the developer and got an error page. Really would like to be able to play this game!
