"Jumbled is best described as fun under pressure...If youre the type of person that loves time killing apps and games, and loves things like crossword puzzles, Sudoku, etc., then youre going to absolutely love Jumbled" - SlapApp.com, 4 out of 5 stars

"It's really fun to play - an unique concept I haven't seen done before...the difficulty curve is great." - AverageApper.com, 4 out of 5 stars

"One of the best word games on my iPod" - iTunes reviewer, 5 out of 5 stars

"This is one of those games that you really need to try to really appreciate. It is fun and addictive." - iTunes reviewer, 5 out of 5 stars

This game challenges you to take advantage of your natural intuition combined with your fast reaction times. In addition to quickly unscrambling the words, you have to choose one of four possible answers that best matches the unscrambled word.

For example, given the jumbled word EDR, find which of the following it best matches: NEPTUNE, PINK, SHARK, GOLF. The answer is PINK since it best matches RED, which is EDR when unscrambled.

Sounds simple? But when theres a timer putting you under pressure and the word lengths start to increase (think: unscrambling 10 letter words like SVTIEEONIL), the game becomes increasingly challenging.

Jumbled has an almost endless number of possibilities: over 100,000,000 POSSIBLE JUMBLES from hundreds of real words.

Here are the many features Jumbled has to offer:
3 difficulty levels for a wide range of players
Points system - earn points based on how long it took you to correctly match the words
5 lives lose one each time you incorrectly match a word
Catchy music and sound effects (option to turn them off)
Optional in-game hints to make gameplay easier
Online leaderboards for each difficulty level
20 achievements to be unlocked using OpenFeint
In-game instructions and support

Got to play a few games and it reminds me of Jumbled from the newspapers when I was younger but in a unique way. I highly recommend to word fans that like a challenge. I will be back after I play the game some more with my review.

@drewse congrats on the recent success of your game!

Review: One of the best word games on my iPod. Challenging and so addicting! You start off easy with a scrambled three letter word. First unscramble it and choose the word that is most in common with the scrambled word. Ex. Bird:Shark (both animals). That unique twist is what's sure to have you coming back for more. At .99, it's a MUST-BUY!

2 questions.. does this support retina display? Can you type out the words or must this process be in one's head?

Not sure about RD, but as for your second question, you unscramble in your head.

Liking the game. Only problem is words repeat themselves too much. For the answer choices and also the scrambled words. Fix this and it's close to perfect. In one game ome word will repeat itself 4-5 times in different places. Add more words and you got yourself a top notch word game.

How bout different modes? A timed mode with no lives

Or a sudden death mode. You only get one life
