Puzzword — A puzzle word game for the iPhone.

It’s a word game, and there’s nothing more fun then racking your brain for all those possible word combinations that you have stored away (well, maybe aside from killing zombies). The ES Group Mobile guys explain it classifies it as:<

A traditional timed word search with the skill of a slider puzzle.

As far as word games go, this one has all the appeal that a word game should have. It’s challenging and fun at the same time. The concept is pretty simple: Tap a letter and drag your finger to adjacent letters to spell out words. The longer the word the more points you get. You can go left to right, top to bottom, around in a circle, backwards, from a corner to another, or a combination of all of them to spell anything. I was a little disappointed when “Pron” didn’t work, but I can live with that.

In the future?

I tend to play all my games in landscape mode. It’s not a deal breaker by any means, but having the option would add to the appeal for me. There is also a pause button. I’m that hardcore! I need to pause it, especially if I’m on an epic run. Adding some tilt functions to fill the empty space would be pretty damn cool as well.
