★ A fun twist on a classic word finding game! ★
PopWords! is an addictive new word finding game. Drag your finger to select words, and watch them vanish with a pop! New letter blocks fall to fill in the gaps, so there are always fresh tiles to work with. You can even select words strategically to move tiles into place and form even longer words.
To keep the game going, you need to find words regularly. Keeping up gets tougher and tougher as time passes. Try to beat your record for words found or points earned!
Play as many games as you like on your own, or compete in our Daily Puzzle competition, where you can see how your score compares to everyone else who played that day. You can even watch the winning solution!

Someone is Fixing The Daily Game!
I have played the daily game for awhile now and have noticed the winning solution is almost always around 1000 points. I'm not that gifted to be able to see words 10 or more in letter length. I have looked at every winning solution and notice that "the winning" player usually picks out three or four letter words and suddenly pick out a large lettered word and promptly proceed to clear the letters for 2X score! The last game, the large word was 'photorespiration'. I am a photographer and never heard of the word so I looked it up on my World dictionary. No such word. I guess my dictionary on my phone is lacking this word. Also, obvious words spelled out in a line that is easily seen are never picked. Some of these words are 7 to 11 points - what player wouldn't pick them, but it's never chosen in the winning solution.
If you doubt what I have observed, see for yourself in a few puzzles when your 50 to 90 scores are not good enough.
A perfect relaxation game
This is one of those ideal games for just unwinding, especially its zen-like practice mode. It doesn't have the blocked-progress stress of crosswords or word-drop games, and the practice mode doesn't have a timer or any set goals. Of course, if you want a competition type of game, then the Classic game is a nice blend of points-per-play time-attack kind of game -- remarkably well done. Yes, the game does not have flashy graphics or super sound...but WHO CARES? The gameplay is excellent, and that's what counts. In fact, the simple graphics make reading easy, especially after your eyes have been at work all day. Go ahead and get it; it's a great way to cool off after a stressful day at work.
What are the tricks? More time options!
The time allowed on Classic is really short & the game would be more interesting if it were longer - and even better if there were a couple of time options. Looking at the Scoreboards & seeing the outrageous scores of others makes me wish there were a few more Tips for Play given. I'm a good Boggler player, but I can't figure out what tricks people are using to get those crazy scores. I've only had this app a few days, but I'm getting bored with it because I can't figure out how to improve.
