Word Monsters Review

Review Raketspel AB By Alex Beech, 3 months, 2 weeks ago
Word Monsters Review

Rovio's latest addition publishing adventure is the fiendishly tricky word game Word Monsters. Developed by Raketspel, this free-to-play puzzler blends wordsearch gameplay with gravity manipulation, creating a game that demands fast thinking and forward planning. You have to find all of the words in each of Word Monster's tile puzzles. Each round has a theme - one may have you searching for animals, while another will be spent locating girls' names. This does make things tricky at fir…

Letris 3: Word puzzle game Review

Review Ivanovich Games By Dave Flodine, 7 months, 3 weeks ago
Letris 3: Word puzzle game Review

App Store success stories can often come from the place you least expect. The Letris series is one such success, and it's a game franchise we haven't really had our eye on. The premise is simple: it's Tetris with letters - essentially a more single-minded version of Puzzlejuice. You create words through tapping letters, and try not to let your stack reach the top of the screen. Letris 3 is the latest in a series so popular that's it's apparently spawned its own game show, so we though…

Sqwords Review

Sqwords Review

Sqwords refers to itself as a blend of Sudoku and crosswords. We would describe the in terms of creating the perfect board of Boggle, where each cluster makes a word both horizontally and vertically. This is easy enough to achieve when the boards are three by three. But, as you advance through four other boards, each growing in size, things start getting pretty complex. Obviously, the level of excitement you feel upon hearing the phrase 'word creation puzzle gameplay' will dictate wh…

Tumblewords Review

Review Minicore Studios LLC By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Tumblewords Review

We don't review too many word games here at AppSpy, at least not lately. This hasn't been for lack of releases either. It's just that after you've played one or two word creation games and then notice that the majority of releases are doing pretty much the same thing, it's hard not to be pessimistic and ignore a lot of what comes out (we should probably be doing that to the endless runner genre, but that's a topic for another time). Now Tumblewords does not reinvent the wheel. You have…

AbraWORDabrA Review

AbraWORDabrA Review

AbraWORDabrA has a flaw - from the outset it feels and plays almost exactly like every 'edutainment' game crammed down your craw during your formative years. The problems are simple, but you can't move on until you get past the rudimentary game slapped on top of it. However, initial pacing issues aside, AbraWORDabrA by Total Arkade Software soon shows its teeth and you'll almost be wishing for the simple game you were complaining about. The game is split up in to two main modes, with…

SpellTower Review

Review Zach Gage By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
SpellTower Review

Your average word game never fails to impress on some level as word formation is such a simple yet addictive puzzle for our brains to solve. What sets some above others is not only the format of finding words, but the elegance of word creation itself, and this is where Spelltower by Zach Gage shines. Words are created by swiping through letters. Not just vertically and horizontally however, but diagonally as well. And it's not to say it's like a word find either. You can start your wo…

Draw Something Review

Review OMGPOP By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Draw Something Review

I bring this message to you in the brief moments of time I now have spare to me. It is abundantly clear to me now that downloading, installing and playing Draw Something with my friends was a huge mistake - I need to work, but I can't... I'm stuck trying to work out how best to depict the word 'Morning' in a clever new way. OMGPOP - you have single-handedly ruined the productivity of smartphone owners around the world. For those who haven't jumped on board the increasingly popular cr…

Bubble in Paradise™ Review

Review Clickgamer.com By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Bubble in Paradise™ Review

With word games, there are generally two kinds. Your slow and steady searching for the best use of available letters before letting fly, and the fast paced create any word that pops into your head immediately before the timer runs down. Bubbles in Paradise is the latter with the addition of the letters themselves being in expanding bubbles that need to be popped as soon as possible, because the longer these letters stay on the screen, the larger the bubbles get, leaving less room for t…

Puzzlejuice Review

Review Sirvo LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Puzzlejuice Review

If you haven't reached a comfortable state of equilibrium with common arcade titles that feature gameplay elements such as color-matching, word-finding or block tessellating, then I can only assume you're a very VERY recent convert to the world of gaming. Don't worry, you'll join the fold soon enough and if you're interested in getting there even faster you can play Puzzlejuice because it combines all three. The best part is it caters to those with only a few seconds spare; those who…

W.E.L.D.E.R. Review

Review Ayopa Games LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
W.E.L.D.E.R. Review

Being a welder of words admittedly sounds rather poncy. However, there's no better explanation for the task set upon you in... 'W.E.L.D.E.R.'. Luckily swapping tiles to create words is a lot of fun, and thanks to some interesting little gameplay additions, a rather unique experience among word and puzzle games is to be had. The core of the game is a mix of Bejeweled and Scrabble. Tiles can be swapped horizontally, vertically, and diagonally to create words of four letters or more. The…

Scribblenauts Remix Review

Review Warner Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Scribblenauts Remix Review

In what was almost a surprise release for the week, Warner Bros published the Nintendo DS famous title Scribblenauts to the App Store. Thanks to Iron Galaxy Studios and 5th Cell Media, iOS gamers can now play Scribblenauts Remix - a pint-sized mash-up of content from the first two games in the series... and do you know what that means? It means 'Adjectives'. And why do we love adjectives? Because now we can make giant winged rainbow beaver's to clear out entire forests in style. If yo…

Typing Maniac Review

Review MetroGames By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Typing Maniac Review

If you haven't had a crack at Typing Maniac on Facebook, I heartily recommend giving it a go - while you may not be the best hardcore gamer around, you might just be able to out-type your friends to a first place victory. However Typing Maniac for iOS devices by MetroGames is a slightly different thing altogether - where the browser version makes great use of keyboard skills, translating the game to depend on your texting skills isn't quite as smooth. This is mostly thanks to the vert…

WordUs2 Review

WordUs2 Review

Mastermind is a quirky and appealing board game thanks to its mix of luck and logic. Sure, it may simply feel like pattern recognition, but there's an undeniable feeling of having outwitted someone (even if this isn't strictly true). WordUs2 by Binary Dawn Interactive extends the pattern matching concept to words in the English language and it's no surprise that the same sense of accomplishment has transferred over as well. Four game modes are available, however the basic gameplay con…

Word Freeze Review

Review GAMEBOTICS Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Word Freeze Review

It has been a while since we've delved in to the madness that is word-puzzle titles, so it's great to finally kick things off again with Word Freeze by GAMEBOTICS. While the basic 'word search' gameplay is nothing terribly new, players are confronted with the challenge of dealing with 'frozen' letters that can block and limit the work-space that you have available. Each letter is contained in a sliding block that can move with relative freedom and if players rotate the screen they can…

Texting of the Bread Review

Review ScrewAttack LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Texting of the Bread Review

Its hard to be a gamer and not have heard about the lads over at Screw Attack central with their game retrospective videos and top lists of gaming (and not so gaming) related topics. And so it's no surprise that this bunch of Internet dwelling gamers have finally come out with their own title and for those familiar with gaming history, Texting of the Bread might just raise some eyebrows. That's right, much like edutainment titles of the past, Texting of the Bread is an homage to Typin…
