Keep getting unwanted notifications from What's the Word on iOS

I've tried to turn them off, but I keep getting unwanted notifications from What's the Word. Under Notifications, it appears under Not in Notification Centre.

Is there another setting I'm missing maybes? Thank you :) :)

Is that an ad-supported app? Are those Notifications for/from that app, or from the Gamecentre?
Sorry, I can't be of more help- I don't know that particular app, and I killed Gamecentre and most notifications on our iPad via Cydia tweaks.

They're like little reminders to go in and play the app. I had a similar issue with another game and had to just uninstall it!

Yes, I got similar nagging notifications from a couple of games I have, thankfully on Android you can disable notifications on an app-by-app basis. I assume this isn't possible on a non-jailbroken iOS device?

Matt, you can usually kill notifications on an app by app basis. But some cheeky apps send you push messages no matter how blocked. I do what pondlife said: uninstall. Then I rate them 1 star and comment some sh*t about the dev's mother in the appstore.

Uninstalling and giving a bad rating are good ideas but they don't solve the initial problem. Some people like the game they have and just want the notifications to stop.
