You're right, it is a mixture of Boggle and Tetris. Never heard of it before now. Great game, thanks for sharing. I'm also enjoying Moxie 2 now, thanks to an earlier recommendation by slewis7.

Word Shaker HD is another good word game for the iPad, now available for free with the ad-supported version as of today. It has live multiplayer, but can take awhile to connect unless you're playing with a friend or family member. It's similar to WordSeek or Boggle, but better than either of those games. Definitely worth trying for free.

SuperWeird, thanks for the recommendation on Word Shaker. The iPad version is on sale for only a buck and along with your suggestion, it is good enough for me.

Wooords should definitely be added to the list of great word games for the iPad. It's universal too. This game is awesome.

Just a heads up if you buy Wordsworth HD it will not work when playing opponents on the non HD version, the two games do not communicate with each other. Very disappointed with that.

There's a new excellent word game out for the iPad called Back & Forth. (It's actually universal, but the extra screen space is helpful on the iPad). It's a nicely polished game, sharp HD graphics, online multiplayer, solo player puzzles, daily puzzles, etc., all for only 99 cents.

The gameplay is similar to Boggle (it's a word finder), but also very different; tiles can only be matched left right up down or diagonal, but the board can also be turned in any direction to flip around and mix up the letters. Also, neighboring letters can be swapped around to form new words, and as you form words the letters vanish until you've cleared the board. I found myself spinning the iPad around and solving words from every angle. Check it out:

That's a really cool mechanic of shifting your device to shuffle the letters around. I will definitely have to try it out as I like word games. A lot.

Linx is a fun 4 letter word game. It's a universal binary - so both iPad and iPhone.

I've really been enjoying Quarrel lately. It's basically Risk meets Scrabble. There is a free version (which is a bit too easy). But right now the $5 Deluxe version is on sale for $0.99.

Edit to mention that it's universal.
