Needs better scoring but great anyway

Living Fossil

Brilliant but could present the player's performance more imaginatively - like analysis of scores, use of plurals et. Some words seem doubtful - not sure if it knows the difference between UK and US spelling. Not too sure how the scoring works, don't know how to find out.

Once it starts counting down the last seconds, it accepts more words but doesn't score them! This is a bug, IMO.

I could not find out how to register my name on the score sheet, nor how to reset the highest score, nor how to display the highest score, nor (and this is the most irritating) how to switch off the invitations to join the Game Center. Basically I never want to do this and have already switched off GC notifications, so I don't want my game interrupted by the invitation.

Excellent - addictive word play


If you like the physical Boggle game, you'll love Wurdle. There's rarely enough time to get all the words out. My wife and I both really like this game. We prefer it to the iOS Boggle app because it doesn't rub your nose in how badly you've done at the end by showing you all the words you didn't get. At least, it doesn't do this by default - you can ask for it to show you the word list should you enjoy humiliation or feel that this would increase your word power. Any way I'll finish my review now as my wife has got a better high score than me - so I've got to get in some practice!!


Silly, loony female

Play it most days- usually in between little jobs or to avoid doing any work- love it! Been playing it ever since I got my I Phone 18 months ago!! Just updated to 4s- and still playing!! It's a great little game! Amazed though at some of the dubious words it allows! Very often I put in odd words just to see if I can claw a few extra points before time runs out!
