Android Game: WordUp!
WordUp! is a game based on the original Boggle. The object of the game is to find as many words as possible out of the grid of 16 letters on the board (there are also 3×3 and 5×5 grids depending on your skill level). You must do this before the time runs out.
Overall Score: 4.25/5
With your Android phone, you simply have to trace the word with your finger. As you do this the word will be spelled out as the letters are highlighted. Words that are accepted will turn from white to blue.
The basic rules are:
· Each subsequent letter must share a side or corner with the previous letter.
· A specific letter must be used only once per word.
· Proper nouns, slang words, and words with apostrophes are not counted.
Scoring words as follows:
· Three or four letters = 1 point
· Five letters = 2 points
· Six letters = 3 points
· Seven letters = 5 points
· Eight or more letters = 11 points
When time runs out you can view all the possible words that could have been created from the grid. The words you were able to capture are highlighted in blue. There is also the ability to look up any definition of words that are found in the game which is a great feature.
With WordUp! you can increase your vocabulary and have fun at the same time. This game is great for kids (and adults alike). If you like word-based games, download this one for your Android device.
