This is a Lite version of the game Verbose. You can download this for free to get a sense of the gameplay. Note that a video has now been uploaded to YouTube with gameplay footage.
Verbose is a new word game with play similar to Bookworm. The object of the game is to find and play words using available tiles. To play a word drag a selection on the tiles and release. Points are awarded based on the letters used and the length of the word.
In Verbose new letter tiles slide in from both the top and bottom of the field, more evenly distributing new tiles, and improving the possibility for longer words.
Verbose sports an enormous word list, including over 100,000 words, names, places and acronyms.
