Mr Word challenges you to a word game with added personality. Even more so, now that Mr Word talks back.
This update sees the following enhancements:
- Mr Word chats with you during 1 player game play, just like a real human opponent
- Improved dictionary (uses the Oxford English Dictionary if installed)
- High score table, plus keeps track of how many games each player has won
- more consistent AI gameplay
Choose 1 player or 2 player modes, and enter your name to begin.
In 1 player mode, you are playing against Mr Word himself. Featuring Genuine People Personality, Mr Word will really give you a run for your money. Sometimes he will offer encouraging comments, other times he can be a little sarcastic - try not to let him put you off.
Choose a difficulty level, Easy, Medium or Hard, then Mr Word will choose words that a real human would choose (his vocabulary increases in Hard level), and respond to your move in seconds - great for rapid fire play. Now even faster than before.
If you make Mr Word think for longer than a few seconds, you are doing really well!
Mr Word will even "spellcheck" your words as you lay them, so you know in advance whether the word you are playing is acceptable. New option: turn off spellcheck for more challenging word play.
In 2 player mode, your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch becomes a high quality table top board game. Both users can examine and manipulate their letters simultaneously, and the board rotates to face you when it's your turn.
Mr Word is minimalist and highly playable so you can rediscover the joy of word games.
Also featuring the Define button - instantly brings up word definitions for all words played. High quality, Apple-supplied dictionary of over 100,000 words. Features definitions from the Oxford English Dictionary so you can learn new words and their meanings every time you play.

What's New in Version 4.4
Scrabble but not!
Wish it had the 2 blank tiles like the original Scrabble had. I play with the sound off because I don't care for the voice over. Much more enjoyable that way. I like that I can leave the app & be able to come back later when I have more time to finish a game without having penalties. The strategy of being able to see the computer's tiles are different, but in a good way! Thanks for not bugging me with too many ads! Don't plan on deleting this app anytime soon!
I have played for many years through all the updates. This is a fun game and it's pretty polished up. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves word games
I like to play myself.
Don't like some snide voice telling me I could have done so much better!
