Welcome to my Words in Alphabet review.
Its been a while since I covered a puzzle-based game, so when I came across this game saying that you can earn $100+ just by completing word searches, I just had to check it out.
Now I love word searches probably even more than crosswords, but something I don’t like is games that make false claims about what you can make and exploit people for there own gain.
That is the case with a lot of the word themed games I have covered up to now. I am hoping that one day there will be one that is genuine, and today you will learn whether this game is going to be that one.
You may be here because of the advert or have started receiving Amazon rewards within the Words In Alphabet game and want to know whether you will get paid at the end.
That is where I come in today, as everything you need to know about them will be covered in this post.
Words In Alphabet Review Summary
- Owner: Hibiscus Game
- What Are They?: Puzzle Game
- My Worth It Rating: 1/5
What Is Words In Alphabet?
Words In Alphabet is a game where you can supposedly make money just through completing word searches.
That is what the advert portrayed by showing a user earning cash of every word they found.
Now interestingly enough, out of all the word-based games I have reviewed, this is the first of its kind to pop up.
Typically they are crossword games, e.g.:
The creators of this game are Hibiscus Game. They have various other apps that consist of both puzzle and arcade. They also have a rating of 3.0 out of 5 plus a total of 100k downloads.
How Do Words In Alphabet Work?
Before you can play the game, Words In Alphabet prompt you to give access to them towards your photos and media on your device. This will come up every time you launch the game, so I advise pressing deny and don’t ask again.
Once you get to the main menu, you will see something to the advert, but you also see is an Amazon card showing in the middle of the screen.
This is a $5 cash coupon from Amazon that is awarded to you from the start. This is added to your balance at the top.
Now getting into the game, you have different categories of questions and also various difficulties to choose from.
You have the following to choose from:
I went with animals and chose the difficulty of easy just to get a feel of what its about.
So into the game and for each category, there is a list of words you need to find. Essentially its just a word search.
Once you have found a word, you will see a message saying congratulations. Followed by a prompt to watch a video to claim a cash reward.
The first amount I got for seeking out the first word was $3.59. This gave me a combined total of $8.59.
But as with all the reviews I do of these games, this amount of money is only useful to me if I actually receive it.
And since sitting through dozens of ads is not for me, I won’t be putting in the effort to reaching the threshold.
How Do They Pay?
While you are shown your balance while playing the game in dollars, if you click on the payout tab, you will see another currency.
In the payout section of Words In Alphabet, they show you the amount you have made in numbers. They don’t tell you what this currency is called, and to be honest; I don’t think it’s needed.
So in my case and as shown in the screenshot, I have 85883 ($8.59). So in conversion terms, you are looking at 100 per $0.01.
I’m not sure why they do this as it only confuses things. But all you need to know is that unless you have $100 showing at the top, you are not able to withdraw it yet.
If you do get to that amount, you can cash out via Amazon and PayPal. The last of which you will only become aware of once you look at the cashouts.
What You Need To Know About
1. Long Word Searches
When I think of completing word searches, it would be trying to find all the hidden words as quickly as I can.
However, here with Words In Alphabet, every time you find a word, which isn’t hard to do, you have to watch an advert.
So you may already be getting a sense of how time-consuming this will be, especially if there are at least eight words to find in each puzzle.
What tends to be the case, is that games like this one are paid on a level basis.
You complete a level and get a bonus, and so on.
However, this one ironically takes it to another level by trying to cash in, making you watch ads for each word instead.
Now to do the maths for you, you are looking at about 4 minutes per word search just spent on ads, which is too much.
You will find that finding the words takes you much less time, so your spending more time with the videos than playing the game.
That is where the problem is though, of course, many people will be playing the game for the financial aspect, but there is no fun in it if you’re hardly playing.
For me, anyway, I would find this quite frustrating.
2. 97 Dollar Cut Off
Each one of these games as an amount were for many users they struggle to get past.
Looking through the Words In Alphabet review section, I found this was around the $97 mark.
So people are getting consistent money until they reach this point only to find that they are no longer being rewarded.
The advert actually shows someone who has made $109.19. However, this is likely fake.
They all make it look very easy, and the fact that the image above shows someone who has made nine more dollars than required gives the impression that this game is simple to earn with.
However, it is far from that, and I believe there is absolutely no confidence that all these people.
Words In Alphabet at first comes across as a new making money game that is different from the rest. As I said earlier, word searches are quite popular, but not many games have done this yet.
However, disappointingly like the rest, it’s another game that looks to be near enough impossible to gain any Amazon Vouchers or even some extra cash with.
The two aspects that I talked about above are really key here. First, the fact that they are making you watch constant videos is a red flag and then what seems to be every user stopping at $97 is shady too.
While it’s too late for these users to get there time back, having likely put in hours in just to get within $3 of the threshold, you can save yours by not downloading the game.
Now, if you here because you like word searches, I can tell you there are better alternatives to the store that will offer a better experience while not spamming you with ads at the same time.
I do hope that this Words In Alphabet review helped you out! If you have any questions, do let me know below, and I will make sure to get back to you 🙂
I’m so irritated as it stoped giving money out at 99.01 and gave BS instructions for additional paid words. I’m completely stuck after all this time.
I know some apps are legit and some not I am doing this for fun just because I like word search and puzzles. If I do get lucky and they’ll pay me. I would say hooray. But I will not count on that The only thing is they making money from us watching videos. So they should reward us.
I agree with you they should payout. I don’t think they should pay out $100’s because people are only playing games, however why these companies say what they say is bad.
