Recent Dark Pattern Reviews

Advertisements reported on Sep 13, 2022
All the time. Ads are almost constant. It's unbearable.
Variable Rewards reported on Sep 13, 2022
Yes. Chests you earn have a "chance" of having certain useful items, like tickets or gems. They also have a chance of having worthless items like skins. Most of the time, they contain the worthless ones.
Pay to Skip reported on Sep 13, 2022
If you lose a round in some mini games, it makes you wait 15 minutes to play again or skip it with gems. You do get gems for some in-game quests, but if you use them regularly, it's nowhere near enough.
Pay to Win reported on Sep 13, 2022
Gems allow you to extend plays, skip timers, and play infinite times. Paying to play will absolutely give you a leg up over others.
Premium Currency reported on Sep 13, 2022
Yes, you can buy gems (in-game currency) in the shop for real money.
Invested / Endowed Value reported on Sep 6, 2022
Players are aggressively encouraged to collect special tiles and achieve special ranks.
Competition reported on Sep 6, 2022
To be fair, friendly competition is the whole point of the original Scrabble game.
