In my match 3 Game the player can make combos.

So I need some interjections.

For example.

1 point: "Good!"
2 ?
3 ?
4 ?
5 ?
6 ?
7 points: "Amazing!"

What would you write from 1 to 7?

Well, I'm not a native English speaker, but...

https://www.thesaurus.com/browse/good

I simply googled for "english synonym" and the first reference was that.

Another one: https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english-thesaurus/good
Yet another one: https://www.lexico.com/en/synonym/good

Ok, I guess I deserve my cup of coffee now..
Not really that helpful as several of those words are obsolete. Bully for example is not common usage for meaning good and hasn't been widely used for at least 50 years. It's the sort of thing used by school kids in the 1920's.

I would suggest: awesome, great, brilliant, superb, ace and excellent. Not really up on modern colloquialisms but sick, kick-ass and wicked spring to mind. Then there is the phrase immortalized by Steve Jobs "Insanely Great".

That is the point.
I am trying create a ordered list with interjections.
What you think about:

1) Good!
2) Great!
3) excellent!
4) awesome!
5) Wow!
6) Amazing!
7) Insane!

What is the target audience for you app? The problem with using colloquialisms such as insane is that it's not necessarily understood by people where English is a second or third language. As a rule of thumb the older the person the less likely they are to recognize a colloquialism or idiom.

A game. Maybe the largest audience is between 13 and 25 years.
But we're trying to do something fun for 13 to 99.

Put a warning: Severely not recommended for those who have passed 25 year, suffer from heart problems, have vascular imbalances or those who does not know the word insane

i like this one:

That is the point.

What you think about:

1) Good!
2) Great!
3) excellent!
4) awesome!
5) Wow!
6) Amazing!
7) Insane!
but if you are working on "Battlefield 6" then i would go with this one:

1) Good
2) Headshot!
3) Double kill
4) Killing spree
5) Rampage
6) M-M-M-Monster Kill
7) Awesome
