AlphaBlox Intereting new Word game

Just saw this on appshopper,

Slide the falling letters into place to form proper (and occasional not-so-proper) English words in this challenging, exciting and addictive puzzle game.

Swipe left or right on the screen to guide the letters, watching out for bombs and rubber tiles which will drive you nuts in your quest to make the longest, highest scoring word.

Play for as long as you can bear, put it away when you like, take it out during your daily commute... AlphaBlox will start off right where you left it, making it ideal for those empty moments - now you can fill them with a word or two!

Infuriatingly addictive and intriguingly enjoyable, who'll be the first to make a ten letter word?


Anyone want to TOFTT?

EDIT: I spelled interesting wrong, if a mod wants to come correct that, that'd be appreciated.

Well, it does like a different from most word games we've been seeing. Maybe it's worth checking out.

I've played it just a bit... It's a very polished game: graphics, animations, subtle sounds and it keeps words and high score. You control the difficulty by setting up the speed and minimum letters to form a word. The default settings is made for an easy play (can take very long) because 3 words are very easy to form.

4 letters with the same speed make things interesting.

The control is just swipe and there's no way to accelerate a tile (like a double tap to make it fall). Anyway, you don't have much time to always want to do that.

I like the game but I can't say I'm addicted or that is the best word game ever.
