BryanMabel and the AlphamitesIf you're like us you've played many a platform game and word puzzle games, but what about one that brings them together for some high-scoring vocabulary action? Mabel and the Alphamites combines these two challenging and brain-teasing genres of casual game into an experimental one that gets you grabbing letters from the air or on top of the platforms to make words and turn them into more platforms. Who would have thought that all those grade school vocabulary classes would come in handy for saving your life in a flash game like this? Not me.

You get scored for each word you make based on the letters used, if any letters were combo multipliers, and how long the words are. Mabel will keep jumping and stringing words together as long as you do not fall off your bottom platform or get blown up by a pesky 'letterbomb' (which are apparent due to a timer above them). A casual word puzzle/platform game that gets you thinking not only about the words you create, but also where to place platforms sound like a recipe for an addicting and mind-stimulating good time that gets your brain working twice as hard. The controls are easy to learn so they won't hinder your word crafting while the oddly charming Mabel and alphamites are pleasant to watch as they scuttle hither and thither along your word platforms. Whether you open it up for an hour at home or during a snack break at work, make sure you have a dictionary at hand to help you out when you can't think of enough words to spell out.

I like the concept, but I'm still swearing at the controls... when a bomb tile's about to go off and I'm trying to sort through a pile of critters, and then just as I'm about to finish the word another letter walks in front of me, causing the auto-targeting to connect my word wrong... argh. And if a letter DOES decide to attach to something behind you, you have to take apart the whole word to fix it, causing all the letters to scatter.

The most troubling thing is that I spend to long trying to track down the critter I want that it's hard to focus on making cool words... it just doesn't feel like a word game, since if I spend more than 10 seconds chasing after the last "e" on screen, a bomb goes off somewhere and destroys more tiles than I was about to build.
