What Is Fozy?
Fozy is a unique and addicting word game designed exclusively for the iPhone.
What Makes Fozy So Different?
With Fozy, you choose how and when new letters slide in to fill the gaps.
Rotate your device to choose the direction, then tap or swipe an empty space. Letters will fall down, but only as far as the place you touched.
If you’re clever, you can move letters from one side of the board to the other.
Will I like Fozy?
Are you kidding?
Whether you like quick games or strategic games, if you like word games, you’ll LOVE Fozy!
Play in one of 3 fun modes:
* TIMED - You have 2 minutes to max out your score. Make long words to get more time!
* COUNTED - How high can you score before using 25 tiles? Make long words to get more letters.
* SURVIVOR - Juggle the tiles and plan your moves because no new letters will appear. Can you clear the whole board?
Keeps track of high score, longest word, and highest scoring word for each mode.
When you close the app or get a phone call Fozy saves it’s state. Start it up again later, and pick up right where you left off.
Fozy has a huge dictionary, and uses American, British, or Canadian spellings based on your region. Spell “color” the way you were taught!
Try Fozy, and see for yourself why this game has been called “instantly addicting!"

Exactly What I was Looking for
As a fan of Word Soup on Xbox 360 Indie Games, I enjoy word puzzle games with modes that allow for planning and thought rather than frantically searching for words while the time is running out. "Counted" mode is exactly the kind of mode I wish every word puzzle game made an effort to mimic. There is no time limit, letters are limited to 25 total, but are replenished when you create a word. Short words do little to nothing to replenish the letter count, but longer words can even provide more letters than are used in the words so you can negate making a few small words to make some more crazy planned long words. My only gripe is that even if you earn more letter points, the max is what you start with, 25. I could easily see myself going up and up with some careful planning, so that's probably actually a good thing.
Not quite Bookworm, but not bad, either.
Okay, I admit that what I was really looking for was Bookworm. This is not Bookworm. It is, however, a distillation of its core gameplay with a couple of unique twists. Unlike Bookworm, you can turn the board to look at it from any angle. This is genuinely useful. I have Bookworm now and I keep wanting to flip the board around and get frustrated when I can't. I just have to think harder to find the backwards and sideways words. Also, dropping in new letters from the direction of your choice is really cool. These features plus the core play satisfied my jonesing for a word game. Having said that, there's a reason I eventually bought Bookworm. The board is too small, games are too short and the dictionary seemed limited. Despite that, this game gets a solid 4 stars for a really good effort. Definitely pick this up while it's still free!
A solid word game
It's basically a boggle-like game with different play modes. My favorite mode is counted, because I can take my time and keep trying to find the long words that give me more turns. I also like that it keeps track of my longest word and highest word score.
