Is this similar to the versions that have been on the DS/Wii? I liked those games.

This is similar to the daily modes found on the DS and Wii versions. The game serves up a single unique puzzle each day to play, with an AI player score for you to beat. As the week progresses, the challenges get harder to beat.

Would gladly pay a few extra dollars for it!

It's been my favorite word game for the iPod. Love it. Not to into word games, but it's fun, simple and I like the way it looks. Worth it for 99 cents. Try the lite version, it's extremely well made.

Bought this when it first came out and agree that it is a wonderful word game. Very good pick up for a buck...

But I, too, would have gladly paid more for the Vs. mode that the DS had. In fact after playing it for a little bit I had to dig up the old DS and play the mode I really wanted.

Please add that to the game and take my money...

Oh wow... I played this on DS, great game.

Had no idea there was an i-device version, and just bought it for 99 cents. Nice!

Gotta love the app store.
