Wordly brings the classic word scramble game to iOS devices. It is a simple, fun and addictive puzzle game, in which the objective is to find and trace as many words as possible on a randomly generated board before the clock runs out.
Form valid words by tracing letters on the board with your finger. Words can only be formed by connecting neighbouring letters, and the minimum word length is 3 letters. When you think you have found a word, release your finger from the board, and if valid, you score a point in the game.
- All possible words shown at the end of a game
- Board quality checker, to ensure there’s plenty of words to find
- Features an untimed mode
- Choose your own game time limit
- Intuitive user interface

“This is a highly addictive, enjoyable and often humbling game. I didn’t experience any bugs, hang-ups or problems running Wordly.
"Wordly is great. Once you get used to the idea that there are dozens of obscure words you’ve never heard of, this game is just great. My kids play it, my wife plays it – it is so addictive. The best £1.19 I ever spent on anything!!"

Ratings and Reviews
Very Fun, and Addicting
A well designed and well implemented app, for those of us who enjoy a word finding game. It offers a choice of three time limit modes and a non-timed mode.
One caveat would be that, like many other games of this sort, you will not be able to figure out what dictionary is used to accept or deny your words. This is a very small issue, but when I find a word that the game rejects in a standard dictionary, it is annoying; almost as much as the words it shows you missed which cannot be found in a standard dictionary.
Nonetheless , a fine game that I keep returning to time and again.
My most used game
I have been looking for a game that would occupy some down time. I have never looked at this type of game, I don't like crossword puzzles and am a bad speller. Yet this word puzzle is my go to game on my iPhone. It has improved my spelling. I can do it with not WiFi or data connection. If you can't find all the words in one sitting you can minimize the app without Force closing it and your game remains. I also like that one may turn off the timer. Thanks
Can't save game
I enjoy the challenge but in order to complete finding all the possible words, it takes time. Hard to complete in one non stop play. Hard to believe it does not save your game. I find this a big negative. I have discovered that my iPod touch saves the game indefinitely when I return to it but will not save on my IPad. Strange. I continue playing the game anyway because I do love it. I have bumped the game to 4 stars from 3.
Challenge friends and check leaderboards and achievements.
