Vary nice game
Overall, this is a very nice game- fun, challenging, and different.
However, I'm finding that it needs two things to make it live up to it's full potential... In walkabout mode, there needs to be a word history available for the current game, for those games that get interrupted. I'm not going to be able to remember the next day what words have been played. :-) The other thing it needs is an option to use the TUAW word-list for us American players. It feels like the computer's cheating when it plays an alternate Scottish spelling for "golf" that would never be accepted in the States. There are too many of those words that, as an American, I really have no chance of knowing without reading the built-in dictionary. Obscure words are fine - obscure and "foreign" - less so for this US player. It won't keep me from playing though!
Lots of potential but...
I agree with the previous reviewer. Things are a little too cluttered on the screen. I accidentally tap other buttons as I scroll through the letters. Also, there needs to be more time between 10 second rounds on the 2 player timed mode.
Needs more precise control
When you deal with only 4 letters, you just can't have a game with as much variability and replayability as Boggle or even Text Twist.
And the fast-paced nature of the game requires very smooth and precise control over the letters, which I'm not getting.
