Our favorite word gamesTired of flinging birds around? Have fun and improve your brain with these word games for your mobile devices.
Welcome to Tap that App, I�m Brian Tong and this is the show where we cover the hottest apps in the mobile space. Casual games might not be enough for you and you�re really looking for something that uses your brain. So I�ve collected some of the standout word games, that will keep your mind sharp and expand your vocabulary for iOS. Everyone knows about Words with Friends, its FREE and its available for iOS and Android with its scrabble-style word games and triple letter scores. You can also play against your Facebook friends but I�m getting tired of someone beating me by using the �word� Z-A, so what other word games are out there. One of the coolest, is a game called W.E.L.D.E.R. where you start with a game board with letter tiles randomly arranged. You�re given a limited number of swaps to create four letter words or larger. You can swap tiles directly next to each other or diagonally. When words are created new tiles come into play. Different tiles have different attributes, and even when you end up creating words that you�ve never heard of, you can touch them find out what they mean. It�s $3.99 and it�s a little higher priced but it will challenge your mind and it�s a real thinking game. Another game that�s a completely different kind of word game is Scribblenauts Remix. You might recognize this game from the team at 5th Cell on the Nintendo DS, but its here on iOS for $4.99 with exclusive levels. You�ll be presented with different challenges, and its up to you to write down items that will appear in the game, that you�ll need to solve the problem at hand. So if we�re trying to get a knight across this lake with a shark then I�ll create stun gun to shock the water, then make myself a boat, while I give the knight a jetpack to get across. It�s really up to your mind to figure out what works and what doesn�t but its another awesome game. So out with the old and in with this new wave of games that work on your iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. If you have any other apps you�d like us to show off, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. I�m Brian Tong thanks for watching and we�ll see you next time.
