Oh, My Word! 2 is the sequel to Mobile Pie's critically acclaimed brain-box bendingly simple yet highly-addictive word puzzle game.

Close in on a hidden five-letter word by finding out if the word you guess is before or after it in the dictionary. It'll make you scratch your head and whoop with joy as you search and find illusive words and smash top scores.

Features:
- Three awesome modes: From the old favorite of Classic to the fast and frantic of Time Attack and Survival.
- A huge dictionary of words to guess from.
- Swish graphics and sounds.

Oh, My Word! 2 is the perfect game for on your own on the bus or train or with your friends huddled around and guessing with you.

Here's a quick round up of what the critics have been saying:

Oh, My Word! 2 might fly under the radar of many gamers. A lack of guns, explosions and fancy 3D graphics might immediately write the game off for many, but these people were never the games target demographic. Saying this, the game certainly has wide appeal, and will surprise many who assumed beforehand that it wouldnt be their cup of tea (like my good self). Give the game an inch however, and itll steal a mile; Oh, My Word! 2 is deceptively good fun. Word-puzzle fans shouldnt think twice about snapping this up.

7/10

App Gamer review

Word game aficionados have cause to celebrate because Oh, My Word! 2 is now out for the iPhone and iPod touch All in all, Mobile Pie does an extremely great job by coming up with a creative new take on a crowded genre that not only packs hours of diversion but is great to play anytime and anywhere!

4.75/5

App-reciation Reviews review

The result is a game that feels more like an update that rounds out a first attempt than a true sequel which expands the concept. Oh, My Word! 2 is a pleasant experience for word fiends, then, but more SOLID than SUPER.

6/10

Yes, it is global. Unfortunately it takes a little time for the price drop to propagate across the different store.

Just checked the UK and US stores and the price has now peggled there!
