WordPop! is out

As predicted earlier (topic) WordPop! is now out.



The aim is to make as much words as possible.

The gameplay is simple: tiles used to make a word are eliminated from the board. If you empty a board a new one is generated. Bonus tiles are given depending on the game difficulty (right slot). There's a rotate bottom that chances the tiles position if you get stuck (round button, at right/bottom). If you can form a valid word and don't have bonus tiles to help you out then you can tap "Quit" to end the game.

If you know English language try Hard for a quicker play.

PROS
- Version for iPhone rather than just a port
- High quality graphics, sounds and animations
- 3 difficulty levels well balanced
- Only valid words enables the enter/check button
- Bonus tiles
- Undo
- High Score and Best Words tracking
- In-game tips and help
- Basic preferences including disable sound
- Resumes a game

CONS
- Tiles could be a little bigger IMO, tho it was not a problem while playing
- You have to "Quit" in order to end a game

WISHES
- Bigger tiles size
- A time based mode for a quick play
- An option to move tiles if you tilt right/left
- Online high score

All in all it's a great game that I've enjoyed for some years in my old Palm devices.

It's $1.99 until 5th Jan.

My rating would be 4/5+ (yes almost, almost 5/5).

Personally I like Scrabble more than anything else when it comes to Word games.

I like Scrabble too! But it's always nice to play something different...

sounds good - cheers Carlos,

at the moment, I'm getting lots of replay value with WordsWorth

I haven't even moved on to bigger grid or word size yet and it's still hyper-addictive

I'll keep WordPop in mind though - in case WordsWorth ever pales

And ends up wasting more money on other word games when we can get it all on Scrabble.

All right we get it, you like Scrabble.

But that's not mean everyone in the world likes it as you do. In addition, I'm not even sure if Scrabble is available worldwide...

When shooting a mime, don't use a silencer or his friends will hear you.
