(via bookshelves of doom)
It’s like JEOPARDY! for words, and is currently in the running for replacing the venerable Drop7 as #1 timewaster on my iPhone. Web version is here. It’s not perfect, though, and there are some definite points for improvement:
1. Eliminate word repetition. I swear I get the same 50 words every time I play, which is a drag. Sometimes I even get the same word thrice in a row. C’mon, dude. There are a bazillion words in the English language, so there’s really no excuse for this.
2. Landscape orientation. The game can only be played on portrait, as shown on the screenshot above. Obviously, allowing screen rotation would give access to a wider keyboard and easier typing.
3. Unified leaderboard. The rankings are separate for web and iOS players, and I see no good reason why. Surely there are more than a few folks who play on both, other than me. Better yet, incorporate Game Center.
This game has the potential to be really big, if they make the right improvements and more. I can already see the dollar signs if they make it available in different languages; I for one would be interested in buying a Japanese version.
