Wordament

JohnBOriginally released as a Windows Phone game, Wordament from Microsoft is a straightforward Boggle-like word game that's heavy on statistics and competitive scores. Round after round of letter arrangements you'll see, utilizing your precious few minutes to spell as many words as you can before it's on to the scoreboard followed by the next letter grid. And if you're not as interested in beating everyone over the head with your fast-finding word skills, you can also just, you know, play the game and have a good time!

WordamentWordament is technically a multiplayer game, as everyone who plays shares the same arrangement of letters and competes for a high score. Functionally, though, it's just you, a 4x4 grid of letter tiles, and a timer that always seems to be running on empty. All you have to do is drag letters to spell as many words as you can as quickly as you can. Tiles are worth points, the more difficult a letter is to use the more points you get (we're looking at you, Z). The player with the most points gets to shine atop the leaderboards at the end of each round.

In addition to comparing raw scores, Wordament also fills you in on details such as which words were found, how many seconds it took to find words, words found and not found, and multiplayer averages. Looking at the stats is surprisingly interesting and might reveal a bit about language habits, but since the next round begins after just a few seconds, you won't have too much time to calculate. Wordament is rather fast-paced, which may or may not be your thing, but it's perfect for those moments you need a quick word game fix.

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on the iPad 3. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.
