Game Review: WordamentAugust 1, 2011 No Comments
Looking for a great word game on your Windows Phone? Look no further than the free word game Wordament. I have been hooked to this game for the past week. I am not great at it and usually my scores are nothing but average but the game is just plain fun.
The game works like many other word games out there, you have to connect letters to make words. The longer your word is and the more difficult letters you use, the higher your score is for that word. You are given 2 minutes to create as many words as you can. That’s fun in its own right and the UI works perfectly for the concept. The game shines though in its competition and community. You are playing the exact same game with hundreds around the world at the same time. Every time a new game starts – that game is being presented to everyone. After every game your stats show up and shortly after you are compared to every player in the world that played along side of you. You are ranked and it even shows what country everyone is from. Another really cool concept is that from the global list you can choose frenemies to follow and compare scores with each round. That definitely adds a whole other level of competition.
Wordament has commanded my gaming on my Windows Phone as of late and it can easily do the same for you.
The game is very easy to get into and is completely free.
Wordament(TM) is a unique kind of word gameâ€”a word tournamentâ€”where you are competing with the whole internet to be the best word searcher in every game. Every player is competing on the same board, in real time, to get the highest score. Will you be the Wordament champion?
This release takes Wordament to new heights with an amazing new feature: Frenemies(TM). Now, you not only play with everyone else in the world, you can keep your friends close, but your enemies closer! Tap names in the results list to add them to your personal list of Frenemies, which is shown at the end of every game. Compare yourself to them, or to everyone else. How you play and how you win is up to you!
Wordament features unique, highly playable games. Every board is guaranteed to have over 100 possible words, and every tile is playable. At the end of each round you are shown your individual results with all of the words you found and missed. Our dictionary is tuned to help you find the most common words you missed. We also have themed games, like Digraphs, were we introduce a simple, but fun secondary goal of using a special â€œtwo letter tileâ€ in as many words as possible.Tags: Free Games, game of the week, game review, Games, Puzzle, Windows Phone, Word Games, Wordament, WP7Apps, Games, Reviews
