**Featured and Promoted as a Best New Word Game by Apple!**
Letter Box is a fun new word game that combines elements of jumbles, Boggle, and Scrabble into one! Playing is as simple as tapping letter tiles.
Each puzzle is a grid of letters. Your job is to move the letters around until each row and column contains a word. Puzzles come in three sizes: 3x3, 4x4, and 5x5. They're a great brain teaser while you're waiting in line, sitting on the bus, or trying to avoid talking to your blind date.
And while it would be cool if the game was more complex and needed a really long, robust description - it's really that easy. Pick a puzzle size and start swapping tiles. If you need a hint there are an unlimited number of them at your disposal (though trying to solve the puzzles without hints is pretty fun, too).
So if you love word games, you might as well check out Letter Box. I mean, what else are you doing? Nothing. You're sitting looking at nerdy word games on your phone. So stop dilly dally-ing and download this game already!
New packs for each puzzle size!
Ratings and Reviews
It is fun but the 3 x 3 puzzles are more challenging than I expected. That is probably my fault for trying to play at 11 PM. lol
Fun word game, a tad flawed
This is a neat, simple word game that's similar to filling out one corner of a crossword. For the extra $.99 or whatever I grabbed all the extra puzzles. Perfect game while waiting in line or when you have 2 to 6 minutes to kill. Some minor tweaks would help this game. The grid clicking is a tad too slow, the board of play should be larger - there's no reason it shouldn't stretch the width of the phone screen. I just found one bug worth sharing. In 4x4 mode, puzzle pack 3, board #17 cannot be solved. In frustration I kept clicking more hints until the whole board was "solved" for me. But it wasn't. WHOO isn't a word. The board didn't solve itself; it simply locked in every letter for me and left one row incomplete. Ah well. At least I can click onward to the next board. But that was a frustrating 22 minutes. Still worthy of you $2.
UPDATE: I've completed 2/3 of the boards and I LOVE this game. Excellent for any crossword fan.
Who writes the clues? I’d like to be their best friend!
I love logic puzzles and the humor of the clues makes this game delightfully challenging! Also, the simplicity of the app design is a welcome and appreciated feature in the world of apps with far, far too many useless and irritating graphics.
