Jumble Quotes is a combination trivia and word construction game (similar to Wheel of Fortune). You have to guess 300 more-or-less famous quotes in various categories, given the author, total number of words and letters in the quote, and the letters that comprise the puzzle (for example, you might begin by knowing that the puzzle has five E's and six T's. As you construct words, the number of remaining words and available letters decreases. If you get stumped, there are a unlimited number of hints available in the paid version. Each hint reveals the first remaining letter of each unsolved word.
The game is fairly straightforward and the gameplay itself is easy, but a number of the puzzles can be very challenging if you don't already know the quote. Some quotes are fairly easy to get; for example, under US Presidents, there's the famous quote from Franklin Roosevelt, "The only thing to fear is fear itself." On the other hand, I doubt there's a lot of people familiar with inspirational quotes by such people as Harry Golden and Billie Burke, which are also in the game. If you don't know the answer already (and that's bound to happen a lot), the best way to attempt to solve the puzzle is by solving the small words (words like "the," "and," "in," "on," and "no" turn up a lot), and then figuring out what the remaining words by the remaining letters and what makes sense. Many of the puzzles involve plays on words, such as repeating a word or two later in the quote with a slight variation (such as using "walks in" and "walks out" in the same quote).
Most people are probably going to have to use the hints feature on multiple occasions to get through these puzzles, but even if you see the first letter of the various words, the puzzles can still be challenging. In my view, the best aspect of the game is that it allows players to use the hints feature as little or as much as needed, allowing them to adjust the degree of difficulty of any puzzle and eventually solve it.
The substantial number of obscure puzzles and the need to use the hints feature on multiple occasions may make this game too frustrating for some people. It's definitely a game for word and trivia enthusiasts. However, Jumble Quotes works well as both a trivia game and a wordplay game and for both experts and novices. Even the most accomplished players should get hours of challenging entertainment going through these puzzles and, in addition, discover some very clever quotes by some very astute writers and speakers.
I bought Wordgenuity this morning, and removed it completely from my Kindle tonight. Basically, it is not just dealing in trivia, but historical minutia such as a quote by Woodrow Wilson (who wasn't noted for many quotes) or what one of the characters says in South Park (which I've watched once). About 80% of the game concerns really obscure information. When you ask for a hint, you get the first letters of every word in the "puzzle." It would have been much better to let you guess at letters as well as words, and have the letters fill in until you either give up or get the quotes. I KNEW I shouldn't have bought this based upon "You'll love it" reviews, but I did, and thank heavens I'm only out a buck.
I played the lite version and ran out of hints, so it became useless. I did like playing it, and found that the paid version had unlimited hints and a huge number of puzzles. I think how much I spend on a stop for a burger, and the price is justified for all the hours of entertainment I get out of this game.
