Word Scramble is an easy game that avoids becoming a bore thanks to a vibrant and active screen. It is an energetic little app that will get you thinking while having fun.

The goal is basic–to create as many words as you can by connecting adjacent letters before time runs out and see how many points you can score.  But if you find yourself in a mental rut, grab the corners of your board to rotate for a new perspective. 

Instead of punching in letters, Word Scramble lets you drag your finger across the screen to connect letters.

This great feature adds a flow to the app that makes it more a game than a spelling test.  When time runs out, Word Scramble lets you scroll through all possible alternatives to see what crazy connections you overlooked.

Better, you can play Word Scramble against other players. A “play and pass” function lets you share the game with a friend in the room. Or you can create a profile and “challenge” a friend on his or her iPhone or on Facebook.  Word Scramble even lets you play online against a horde of challengers, all matched up on the same board.  Watch your opponent’s scores add up and see how high you can rank.
