****Price Drop by 50%*****
ScruzzleWord is the first word puzzle game completely reinvented to take advantage of the interactivity of iPhone.
ScruzzleWord comes with 50 professionally-created crossword puzzles in the American symmetrical style. Each new puzzle begins with all-but-four of its letters scrambled. The four correctly placed letters are highlighted in gold. You may tap on any golden square to see the across and down clue for that square. Your objective is to unscramble the remaining letters by dragging and dropping them into the correct squares. Each correct square will turn gold and ring a bell. You may now tap on this square to see a clue. The puzzle is solved when all the squares turn golden.
ScruzzleWord has two modes of difficulty making it fun and challenging for people of different ages and puzzle-solving ability. In addition to "Beginner Mode" which is described above, ScruzzleWord can be set to "Challenge Mode which limits clues to non-touching golden squares. Skilled word-puzzle solvers will absolutely love "Challenge Mode" as it requires them to fill in the puzzle grid strategically using a variety of techniques familiar from classic word games such as Scrabble, Word Search and even Sudoku. "Challenge Mode" makes even previously solved puzzles challenging to solve again and again.
ScruzzleWord will be upgraded regularly with new crossword puzzles, vocabulary puzzles, foreign language puzzles and specialty subject puzzles.
The game is much better than crossword puzzle and scrabble.
What's New in Version 2.0
The version 2.0 fixes bugs for the iPod Touch users. Other miscellaneous bug fixes have been made also.
Pretty neat concept. Can I turn off the bell though?
Wasn't sure what this was going to be, but got it because I like word games and the reviews were good. It is basically a crossword puzzle with all the letters already showing, just scrambled. You have to move the letters to the right places. You get clues as you proceed. It is a clever idea and pretty well implemented. My only real complaint is that I can't figure out how to turn the loud CHIME/BELL off that rings every time you get a letter in the right place. Overall, this is a great app if you like crossword puzzles. I don't think it is very "scrabble-like" though.
I don't like crossword puzzles, but this is a great game. All the letters are on the board already, you just have to put them in the right place. The clues that are given aren't always easy, but they are not too difficult either. I would have given this app. a 5 star, but I already had to repeat a few words in the puzzle. Hope they keep updating with new puzzles or words. It is worth the price. If you don't like standard crosswords, you should give this a try.
I must agree...
...with all other reviewers. This is one well done, and fun app! It had been a while since I'd done xword puzzles and was a bit hesitant to download, but am so glad I did and I know you will be too. So, yes this is highly recommended. Be careful though. Time will definitely get away from you.
