So you think working in a library is easy? Let’s put your Dewey decimal skills to the test.
Letter Matrix, a USA Network Games exclusive, is a challenging game that appeals to the consummate wordsmith, as well as the novice speller. It is a word game of tempo, starting slow and becoming faster as it tests a player’s ability to balance wit, strategy and composure, while creating words.
As books fall, choose letters from any position in the stack to form words. If you let all of the books stack up to the top of the game play area, the game is over.
While trying for the large word scores yields more points and bragging rights, it also increases pressure and creates a scenario where one wrong move could cost you the game. As the game progresses through its 20 possible levels, balancing strategy and composure is critical – even the seasoned word game veteran will have to fight to stay alive. Pay attention to letter values and word length bonuses to really maximize your score.
* 20 action packed levels
* Multiple touch methods to clear, submit and alter words.
* Dynamic tempo-based soundtrack
* Save your game
* Word Look-Up: spell check, return suggestions and get point values.
* High Scores: local & global high score lists to track your standing.
* Statistics: track interesting game stats
* Game play tips
Developed by GlowPlay, a division of Glow Interactive (www.glowplay.us), the game boasts clean, crisp graphics and smooth game play. Aged paper and wooden bookshelves provide an authentic old library feel. The soundtrack plays along at a very calm and refreshing rhythm, but as the game changes pace the tempo increases, adding feelings of challenging pressure. Enjoy.
What's New in Version 1.1

I like this game, it's just that many times the wrong letter gets pushed when you touch the screen, you get used to it though... If you have a blackberry you'll love word mole
This is a great game!! However, I find the letters falling down too,too fast to keep up! There's no gradual increase of speed as the letters fall. It's a downpour from the very beginning! Also, it will tap out incorrect letters-not very touch sensitive. Still I like this game and with some tweaking, it can be 4****
Too hard on the eyes
I played only a few times before deleting this app. It's too hard to tell which letters you've actually selected. It would be nice if you didn't have to click "clear" to get rid of a failed attempt. Most other word games automatically "unselect" letters if they don't spell a word in the game's dictionary.
