WordUp! Android app Review


Similar to the game Boggle, the WordUp! Android app is a great way to pass your time playing a word game and improving your vocabulary.  It is extremely addicting and you will play it for hours in order to beat out your high scores and prove that you are more intelligent than your friends or even the computer.  This game offers a lot of different features that let you customize your game so that you can make the most out of it.

You can choose to play on grids that have 4 X4 or 5 X 5 blocks.  The point of the game is to take the random selection of letters that have been given to you and to rearrange them into different words without using the same letter twice.  You create words by using blocks that are touching or are adjacent to the letter that you start out with.  The longer the word that you create the more points you will get.  The trick is to get more words than your opponent and score a higher score so that you can prove your dominance.  Be aware that if you both pick the same words that nobody gets points so it is important to have words that your opponent won’ t have so that you can get points.  You can use a variety of different variations of words in order to rack up a lot of points.  Don’t underestimate the small words either as they can add up if you get enough of them

The way that you create the words is by taking your finger and tracing along the lettered dice that you want to use to create the words.  The user interface is a little difficult to pick up at first as you need to be pretty precise with your tracings to make the right words.  You will soon get the hang of it, though, and you will be able to bust out a variety of words very quickly to beat your competitors.
