Word Cross

The best app in this category which is also marked as an “editor’s choice”. It is a classic word game for those who enjoy solving tasks dealing with letters and words – like a crossword, but a little different.

This app will perfectly suit those who don’t like to go extra with apps – it is not too difficult, not too fancy, not too boring, not too ugly – it feels like the developers found the golden middle in here.

You can choose the difficulty of the level or just go gradually from one difficulty to another. As you are progressing in the game it becomes more tricky. A bonus point that you are going to play each time on a new version of scheme design.

Another advantage of this app is that it is really lightweight. Because, at the end of the day, it is just a word game, so it would be unlogical if it would weigh several GB.

Wordfeud is a word game played with others. You can play either with one of your friends on Facebook or with a random player. In the beginning, you are given seven letters. Your purpose is to gain as many points as possible by making up the most complicated words and/or using the most complicated letters.

This can be extremely hard to do, especially when you have got the letters that at first sight seem unusable. The cool part is that you have to build up words using the ones your opponent and you made before.

The languages presented in this game are mostly Scandinavian. There is English, of course, so no worries if you don’t speak Finnish, Dutch or Swedish.

The boring part of the game is that you have to wait a lot while your opponent makes a move, but if you are playing with one of your friends, you can avoid this problem. And, as it turns out, you can play up to 30 games simultaneously, which makes the waiting part not so terrible.

There are two versions of the game. The free one includes ads, but they don’t bother too much. The advantages of the game are (1) that it really makes you think and (2) it weighs only 4 MB. So if you are not afraid of waiting and are into such kind of games, get Wordfeud now and enjoy!

Words With Friends

Words With Friends is similar to the previous word game app. The rules are the same. A little advantage of this one is that the rules are explained, which is quite useful if you play for the first time. However, if you are familiar with the game, you might find it a little bit superfluous (in this case you can always tap the skip button).

Just like in Wordfeud, you are able to invite your friends to the game or play with a person chosen randomly for you. Several games can be played at the same time, but we have managed to find an active player who doesn’t keep you waiting very fast – with the first try. (This person is probably angry right now, as this review is being written instead of making a pass))

You can choose one of the most popular European languages, such as Spanish, French, German, Italian, etc. Fast Play mode is only available in American English. If you feel you are not ready to play with real opponents, you can train on your own in Solo Play mode.

The advantages of this word game app are (1) that it is colorful and nice to look at and (2) that it is engaging and quite interactive (there are goals to achieve).

There is one very unpleasant disadvantage through – the ads that pop up after every move and last for at least 5 seconds, which is a little bit annoying, especially when you inadvertently tap on them. To sum up, the game is dope, the ads suck. Try it now, maybe you’ll be luckier with your experience. Have fun!

The app has a minimalistic design – nothing odd, just the game, and the settings (which, in their turn, are also limited – there are only two themes, a few languages to choose from, and font size regulation).

The fewer attempts you use to do it, the better. The first levels seem to be too easy – in fact, it gets quite annoying when every level turns out to be a piece of cake. However, slowly but surely the complexity grows and the game becomes more exciting.

The advantages of this word game app are (1) its appealing looks and animation and (2) unusual gameplay. The disadvantages are (1) ads that tend to pop up when you are not waiting for them and (2) too many easy levels. Apart from these two tiny nuisances, the app is awesome. Get it now and have fun!
