I love this game
Awesome. This will be the third time I get to earn achievements in this game! Thanks Larry.
i am canada why does Larry lie and usa only can play totally lie larry
Awesome. This is now the 4th way I can earn achievements for this game!
I only know of three SKUs, whats the fourth? PC, WP7/8, BROWSER,… Is the fourth an Xbox Console version?
From @facebook-576127196:disqus up above, the iOS version also offers achievements. :-/
Just started playing and I’m earning the same achievements again that I already got by playing on my iPhone. Awesome.
Thanks for an easy 50Gs!
It works just fine in the UK!
I updated my post…it’s currently available in English only.
It’s not English only. You can change the language in the options.
Yea, I just saw that…the team has been rolling up the various versions so things have been changing in real time! I’ll update my post
4th way to get achievements
WP8, iOS, W8 and now Web. Seems to work in Spanish too as I just got the multilingual achievement quite simply.
They really need to stop making each version a separate sku. I now have 3 versions of Wordament in my Achievements list and have to complete the ones I’ve already done all over again.
Uhm, nobody told you to play 3 versions!
Nobody told him NOT to either, achievements are serious business don’t you know.
Your missing the point. Microsoft promised this big feature called Play / Pause / Resume that would let you continue progress in a game across 3 screens. Those being PC / Xbox / Mobile. Now for that to make sense, one would think that each version of the game, while on different platforms is the same SKU. This however is not the case, and ultimately shows that Microsoft cannot even integrate their own feature properly.
Secondly, its detrimental to developers because they have to code separately for these platforms when they were promised a write once, deploy everywhere sort of environment.
It just doesn’t make sense. The point is integration and this is not helping it.
I do not play them. I just wanted to test.
How can I figure out how MS Surface is cool without trying some of XBOX live games?
And I tried. Now I have some game duplicates on my XBOX Live achievements stats with 0% completion =(( I’m kinda esthetic about 100% completing games so for me and other thousands achievement addicted gamers it IS PROBLEM.
if you haven’t earned any achievements you might be able to delete the records (but don’t ask me where or how… I just remember someone mentioning the possibility before)
First time hearing about this. I know iOS with it’s Game Center has this feature, but not XBOX Live.
not sure if this will work but: http://www.mademan.com/mm/how-delete-achievements-xbox-360.html
Yes, I deleted some games with 0 gamescore, thanks for tip.
But still, some games give you achievement simply because you start play it. Or because you completed first level while testing it. Good example is Game Room title and Show Me! (Visited the Showcase Arcade) achievement.
All I want to say is I have some titles I will never play again with 5-10 gamescore =( And wordament for iOS. I started game just to see how it differs from WP version. And got some achievements after few rounds.
There is no way to delete or remove a game if you have earned ANY achievements.
Yes you can delete 0 gamerscore games on the Xbox. Go to your achievement list on the Xbox through the guide, go down to the game with 0 score, and press the appropriate button to delete the game stats (I think it is the X button, maybe the Y).
oh no, more achievements. how dare they.
Clearly its diluting the “Achievement” objective if you can earn a bunch of quick ones right off the bat. Also, read my other comment below.
Doesn’t ever load for me. It must be trying to load something on a non-standard port that the work firewall is blocking. Oh well.
I totally hope Microsoft brings more games with achievements to iOS and the web. Windows Phone is a failure time to move on.
I can see it happening more but I just hope they dont start charging for web games
I hope it does better as WP7 and 8 are a much, much better OS than ios and android. Hands down.
Just played it for a hour, completed all the achievements, I liked how I could use my surface while having the site open on the pc I found it easy to find words instead of using a mouse.
Hope more games come out like this for “xbox web”
Hi, achievements are not working in Australia.
cause you guys are useless noobs, got your r18 yet?
Yes we have got our R18, what of it.
well finally NZ will stop getting your censored BS games, we had R18
rating forever yet we get your censored games thanks to your stupid
rating system, GTA IV had r18 on the cover yet if you look on the disk
its MA15 and blood, prostitutes where removed (fixed now with patch) We
missed out on Walking Dead thanks to you noobs and many other digital
Maybe you should spend less time playing games (censored or not) and instead use that time to improve your grammar skills; like learning to use punctuation.
Besides (no offence to the actually more respectible NZ players here), aren’t you guys in NZ technically the bigger “noobs” (it’s sad that you’re repeatedly using such a pathetic word in the first place) for copying us? It’s not our fault your government decided to piggyback off us and use our stupid outdated ratings system.
OH KNOW ITS THE SPELLING POLICE, Why the hell would i spend my time on a
shat website making sure my punctuation is good? Now be a good little
greasy wog and go cook me a pizza
Wow someone has a chip on their shoulder.
Great game, BUT all you have to do to earn the “Swipe those tiles” achievement is just sit on the page, without playing or swiping anything for a few minutes.
Please don’t take away my achievement.
Damn’, 4 versions of one game with separate achievements? NO WAY!
I love this on my Windows Phone. Just as fun here!
I live in Australia and the achievements aren’t working for me either.
Cheevos are not working in Germany as well…
Achievements are not working for me here in Norway either. I have tried everything from Chrome on Linux to Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 8. They just don’t unlock for me.
I cant get any achievements too.
The achievements will work if you set your machine’s timezone to US (UTC -5)
That doesn’t work.
this should be a kinect freebie with voice support.
Why are we unable to get Achievements in Australia?
Worked for me, free achievements….cool
We need more games like this on xbx 360 and the web F2P games with achievements
