Search for Words Online as the Clock Counts Down With Wordy Findy

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

It hasn't been until recently that I've really begun to explore my iPhone's capacity for online gaming. I've come to the conclusion that it's certainly not the best platform for drawn-out battles, but it's great for quick random matches. And it's a good fit for a game like Wordy Findy.

There's absolutely nothing to it: just download the app (for free), choose a name to play under and just wait for the next game to start. Matchmaking is handled automatically. Once a game starts, players have around two minutes to find as many words as possible by tracing a line between connecting letters. Completed words earn points based on the values of the letters used and handy information like total available words and points are shown after each game. A scoreboard with each participant's name and score is also displayed between rounds, igniting those instinctual fires of competition while still providing the more humble with anonymity.

Wordy Findy is in the App Store right now, and it's completely free. Ad-supported with banners displayed at the bottom of the screen (mercifully out of the way), but still free.

Word Collapse Stretches Your Vocabulary

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

When it comes to having a bountiful variety of words at your disposal, as a writer, this is pushed to its limits on a near daily basis.  The new game Word Collapse turns that all on its ear, buy combining the worlds of crosswords and tile matching.  Instead of looking for the perfect match three, instead players are looking for words written vertically and horizontally that fit within a given theme.

Still fuzzy on what we are talking about?  Here is a trailer that spells things out in a bit more detail.

Needless to say that while the concept of the game seems simple enough, it would have the capability to twist our brain in knots in no time flat.  Better yet, players' incoming headache will come free of charge and feature thirty different puzzles.

If that doesn't seem like enough challenge, don't fret, because more upgrades are available from within the app, should folks choose to test themselves further. 

Give it a try and let us know what you think below.  I am certainly hooked.
