Best word games for Android
I've always been a big word game fan - always did the Jumbles in the paper and played a lot of Scrabble with my dad and other family. I've found a couple of word games that I really like but am curious if you know of others I could try.
This one's free and based upon the old Boggle game. It does a great job of keeping track of high scores and also gives definitions for words you may not know. The screen is not quite as responsive as I'd like, but all in all, and especially for free, it's a great game.
This one has a free version (Word Pop Lite), but if you like the game you'll want to pay the $2.99 like I did. This is like Tetris mixed with Boggle and Scrabble. Bubbles pop up with letters on them, some double word, triple word, etc points. You have to make as many words as you can before the screen fills. The "record keeping" isn't nearly as good as Word Up, but it's ok. The screen responsiveness is a bit more of an issue with this than with Word Pop, but not bad.
This is a good one for kids like my 7yo girl, and it's free. It's not real challenging for me, as an adult, but it's still fun sometimes. It's better for her, though, because it helps her with her spelling. It doesn't do much to help me learn anything new.
Any other good ones out there? I'd love to find something more like Scrabble....
