Moxie is out (word game)

Link

$1.99

First impression:

This is indeed an unique and well balanced word game.

The gameplay is simple and has a strategic touch. You lose 30 points if you make a word that is not in the game dictionary. That's nice and makes you away from trying randomly words.

Not too long, not too short. You decide the rhythm. It's relaxing.

The interface is very polished. No music but subtle sounds (perfect I may say).

But nothing is perfect. It does not have online high score, tho the game engine seems to not allow score higher than 2000 (a bit more maybe).

In addition, the game incorporates that bad habit that does not save the last username input in the high score table. That needs a fix as soon as possible because it can break that flawless experience that Moxie delivers as soon as you start it for the first time.

I bought it too after watching the video. I really like it! It is sort of like Lock N Roll but with words. I would love to have a separate mode where you can get points for words up and down AND across simultaneously. Also, it would be nice not to have to retype your name every time you get a high score; most games remember the last thing you put in. Other than that, very happy with it. It is a fun game.

Very nice game, couple of suggestions:

1. On the Menu, 2 of the options boot you from the game and to the browser. Could that be indicated in some way?

2. Could the voice (moxie / twaddle) be optional?

My wife has since removed the Touch from me and is playing her second game now so her vote is a positive one
