WordWise by Memorado for Android

Memorado (developer) claims that Wordwise is designed to train vocabulary through puzzle game with 300+ levels.

The concept of the Game: One to many Simple English word’s letters are arranged in the puzzle. From the letters, the words should be identified and select the letters forming the word. The letters can be selected in a direction (left, right, top, bottom, diagonal) one after the other to create the word(s) intended by the developer and solve the puzzle.

We played 100 levels to review this game. With that experience, this App is being reviewed.

Google Play Games App is the prerequisite to use Word wise.

On opening App, Introduction on how to use App will help us to understand the game.

The puzzle levels are categorized based on time in the history of the language like Stone Age, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, Chinese Golden Age, The Renaissance, Middle Ages, Industrial Revolution etc.

In each category, levels ranging from 10 to 20 needs to be solved to access subsequent category. One level contains only one puzzle. Each level page display Level number, number of people who are able to solve the puzzle, letters of words, number of letters in puzzled word (useful when the puzzle has more than one word). At the bottom of the level page, from share option, we can share the puzzle on Facebook and request the friends to help. From refresh option, we can refresh the puzzle page. From Hints, we can access hints if stuck at any level. At the top of the page, from “Back”, we can return category page. From “Help”, Tutorial on How to Play can be accessed.

Additional hints in any level can be purchased by sharing App on Facebook, Twitter or with payment.

Shortcoming of the puzzle that we should create words from letters intended by the developer to solve the Puzzle. For Example letters S, T, O, P may create words STOP, SPOT, POST, POTS, TOPS, OPTS etc. However, we have to make several attempts to identify the word intended by the developer. Due to this, users may stop at any level or feel bored in identifying the intended word.

From our experience, it is felt like Word wise is a commercialized Educational App to revise English words known to us (but not to learn new words as words used in puzzles are regularly using words like Eat, Doctor, Meat etc.) with excellent user interface and lots of efforts from developers. However, it may disappear in a few days unless the number of hints are provided as we feel it is worthless to purchase words, with payment to solve puzzles or provide more possible answers to the puzzles. With hope the developer may make the App more interesting in the future and we do not recommend this App in the present form.
