Oh, My Word! 2 is the sequel to Mobile Pie's critically acclaimed brain-box bendingly simple yet highly-addictive word puzzle game.
Close in on a hidden five-letter word by finding out if the word you guess is before or after it in the dictionary. It'll make you scratch your head and whoop with joy as you search and find illusive words and smash top scores.
- Three awesome modes: From the old favorite of Classic to the fast and frantic of Time Attack and Survival.
- A huge dictionary of words to guess from.
- Swish graphics and sounds.
Oh, My Word! 2 is the perfect game for on your own on the bus or train or with your friends huddled around and guessing with you.

Challenging and fun
Unfortunately, it seems the reason this app has so many low ratings is that most people find it too difficult.
Personally I think this app is a challenging brain teaser that's great fun when played with a friend. Me and my colleague found it to be a great way to pass the time while doing a stock take.
You simply have to deduce the 5 letter word by process of elimination. Every time you guess a word that is alphabetically between the 2 given words, if your guess is not the answer, your guess will then replace either the top or bottom word, therefore narrowing down the range of possible answers.
Definitely give this app a try if you like word puzzles!
Well done devs.
Get it while it's free. No doubt something as good as this will be bumped back up to paid. I'll agree with some of the reviews below, it needs some neutral music. Other than that, it's hard to find a fault with this app. A 5 star review is in order.
Although this game is at first, seemingly impossible, read the help section and it explains how to play. (not just tutorial)
Idea is the word you are trying to guess is somewhere between the two other words in the dictionary.
So the middle word could be a word starting in MNO or P then as you get closer you work through the letters. I managed to get a score of 5 words which isn't the best but I find it challenging at the least.
I would say give it a go, it's not random or lucky that you get it right, you just have to understand what you're doing
