JohnBWordsplosion is a hip, stylish word game that's very similar to the classic board game Mastermind as well as the more recent Wordspector. Your goal is to guess a series of five letter words using a single starting clue. You're given the first letter for free, but in order to figure out the rest, you'll need a combination of skill, luck, trial and error, and maybe a nice dictionary!

WordsplosionAt the top of the screen is a cloud where the target word is hiding. Using the letter spread below, type out a word you think matches the target, then tap the green arrow to submit it. Incorrect letters are tossed aside and marked on your keyboard. Correct letters in the correct spaces are left alone, while correct letters in incorrect spaces are stashed aside in floating bubbles, making it easy for you to drag and drop them into place for your next attempt. After a few guesses, you should be able to work out the target word. If you don't, well, your game isn't going to last very long!

Wordsplosion wins a lot of points for its simplicity, helpful control scheme, and reasonable level of difficulty. What really makes it a great experience, however, is its style and attitude. Visually, this is a game you love to look at, and when when it starts zapping lightning across the screen, throwing your letters around, and turning your keyboard red, you'll feel like some sort of word wizard living high atop a stormy tower of letters. Guessing words is rarely this entertaining (or cool!), and Wordsplosion gets everything just right for a nearly-perfect mobile experience!
