Why play against one person in a turn when you can play against thousands at once? Wordament® is a real-time continuous word tournament. Players compete on the same board with everyone at once. Rounds offer challenges such as two- and three-letter tiles, themed words, speed rounds and more. You can be a champion in many ways: find the most words possible, earn the best score, find the longest words, best your Frenemies, or beat your top score. How you win is up to you.
Wordament tracks your progress by maintaining rich statistics about your gameplay including your best word found, total score, best word count, first place finishes and more. Xbox Leaderboards show you who's rocking it for the day, hour and overall. Climb the ranks and earn achievements and bragging rights along the way. Will you be our next champion?
What's New in Version 2.8.3
This game is amazing. I'd like to see an additional "points per second" score added to the "average points per word" and "word count," but that's not that big of a deal.
What else would be nice to see is "most common mistakes" along with the list of words.
Only things that I actually have a complaint about though are: (1) It forces you to change to the leaderboard at a certain time; sometimes I want to look through the words more than look at the leaderboard or I'm not interested in seeing the words and just want the leaderboard. It'd be nice to freely switch between during the time between games. (2) I don't like the "you're guessing" time penalty. I get why it's there, but occasionally my finger just slips and selects a different letter, I just misspelled a word, or I thought something was a recognized word, such as a slang word or a name. Maybe, it could just be that we say the time they wasted on a wrong word is penalty enough.
Biggest plus it that I haven't experienced a true bug yet; people keep saying it freezes at 23 seconds, but that's only happened to me if I lose my connection.
Good, what would make this great ..
What's good - unique and addictive format, multiplayer w ability to match up against friends, simple but clever user experience. Been playing for over a year. Yet it can be rather frustrating after a bit..
Now what I really wish it had - the biggest thing missing is the ability to play non-timed version, maybe as an option, with ability to suspend and resume, or at least allow users to set different times instead of hard wiring to 2 minutes. Especially while learning the game. Second, the game does not know all words - make it simpler to nominate words that are missing from the dictionary. Third, would be great to have in-app logging to track your performance.
Great but needs to be improved
This game has such a great concept with the layout and the after game leaderboards. The only problem I have with it is that it's impossible to score high unless you know all of the uncommon words that are never used in our everyday language. I'm constantly playing half games because halfway through I can't find any words. After the game is finished, I find that the top scoring common words are still uncommon. I think they need to update their dictionary from the 1800's dictionary to the current dictionary
