Interesting. We launched the free game Word Carnivale on iOS just a few weeks ago and it's been growing virally since then. Some players have put in over 20 hours of play in less than a week.

Good timing considering Zynga has pulled Word Scramble Challenge. The difference is that Word Carnivale isn't just another clone of a 'Boggle' game, the play-field changes with every word discovered, a far richer experience than trying to find obscure words on a fixed set of 16 letters (our grid is 25 by the way). It's ad supported, just interstitial ads after you play a round.
