Word Jolt offers hours of shockingly great gameplay for both the mind and reflexes! Search the board to find and spell words as the letters fall, but don't let the board fill up to quickly or it'll be lights out.
Jump start your advancement by finding the target word and by increasing the size of the words you spell. Word Jolt features two electrifying modes of game play and three levels of difficulty that will keep players of all ages entertained and spelling for hours!
Word Jolt was a top seller on Real Networks' Real One Arcade for several months running and the iPhone/iPod Touch is the perfect platform for this wonderful and charming game.
Fans of Tetris, Bejeweled, Wurdle, and Fieldrunners will find Word Jolt to be a creative combination of the best of these fine puzzle games.
Don't Be Fooled
This game has nice graphics ... but that's about all, for now. Unfortunately, the game is slowed down and too much time is spent pressing the same letter key over and over again because the program does not respond well to input. I found myself having to press a letter over and over again before my input was accepted. And, even then, chances were better than even the program would pick the wrong letter - one next too or near my original choice. I found myself spending too much time pressing letters with no result or having to take back the wrong letters which inadvertently inserted over the ones I was trying to choose. This game might be better were one to feel an instant gratification from seeing the correctly chosen letters show up in the game box. Even if these issues were corrected, I still have doubts as to whether this game is one of those you buy, play once, and then let it sit only to clog up space on your device. Overall, I recommend skipping it and moving on to someting else.
finally, a complete game!
Most of the games that I've downloaded to my phone have been half-baked and short-lived. Word Jolt is a happy exception to that rule, placing it amongst the ranks of quality apps like Fieldrunners and Bejeweled and Wurdle. Racing to spell words as the letters fall evokes memories of Tetris and Scrabble, and I find it highly addictive. All of those "lesser" features that we find in quality games - high scores, autosaves when you exit, in-game help and tips, and various skill levels and game modes - are present in Word Jolt and they make the experience smooth enough that I keep coming back for more. Only downside is I wish it loaded a little faster, but that's a common problem with iPhone apps.
An Adrenaline Rush and Cerebral too !
In arcade mode the pace quickens for multiple adrenaline rushes! So I like that A LOT ! The alternate mode, with no time constraints, is more cerebral, like chess, which is cool but the adrenaline roller coaster that I get from Arcade mode is "mo-betta !" My only desire would be the ability to post my scores to the internet. I want to be King of Word Jolt ! A+++
