Boggle iPhone App Review

   March 5, 2010

Description:

Welcome to Boggle, the world’s fastest paced word game!  Test your vocabulary skills as you try and create words out of the the jumble of letters in the box.  You are working with either a 4X4 or 5X5 board that has a mixture of letters placed in it.  The goal of the game is to use letters that are touching each other to create words.  No letter can be used twice in the same word, so you have to be quick witted to find combinations that will work.  The longer the word is, the more points you will get.  You sit and find words for one, two, or three minutes, and then stop once the timer is done.  Once you are finished you will get points for how many words you got and how big they were.

You can challenge the computer or real people to test your word game skills.  The iPhone offers you some interactive features including the shaking of the phone in order to shake the letters in the game, simulating the real board game.    There are a few different challenges included in this version, including a mode where you can pick all of your game parameters to make it as custom as you would like.  This is an extremely fun word game that can be very addicting.  If you don’t watch yourself you will start playing it for hours on end.  Expand your iPhone app horizons and your vocabulary as well by downloading the Boggle app today!

  • 3 different game modes

Conclusion:

This is one of the most addictive word games out there.  You can honestly get stuck in this game for hours.  The real bonus to this game is that you will soon find your vocabulary expanding as you are constantly looking for more and more words that count for points.  As you improve your vocabulary you will find your scores growing higher and higher.  The multiplayer ability adds an entirely new dimension to the game, cause now you can test your word smarts against other people.  It almost becomes a battle of intellectuals.  If you love words, then this app is totally worth the two dollars it costs to purchase.
