Word ZigZag Lite
by: Jack Hand • 14
Boggle is one of the most liked word games. This Boggle clone brings the same basic concept to your Android phone or tablet. It includes two scoring systems: one that is similar to Boggle and the other that is similar to Scrabble or Words with Friends.
PLEASE NOTE: Most if not all of the issues mentioned in the app's reviews have been addressed with the latest update. If you like this app, please consider leaving positive feedback.
Also note that this is the lite/ad supported version of Word ZigZag. If you are annoyed by ads, then I recommend that you get the paid version which doesn't have ads: http://goo.gl/VLc1N. The paid version is less than $1US.
The game's objective is to find as many words* as you can from adjoining letters within the game's time limit. The letters can run vertically, horizontally, diagonally, or "zigzag". The more words you find, the higher your score.
Word ZigZag is the perfect travel game that will boggle your mind. When playing alone, a player selects the word by tapping the word's 1st letter and gliding his/her finger across the screen over each subsequent letter of the word. Once a word has been selected, the game will determine if it is a valid word*. When playing against friends, players use Word ZigZag as a traditional game board. Players write on paper the valid words that they find on the game board and compare their findings after the time limit.
When a game is done, an alphabetical list of all of the valid words* in the game board will appear so the player can have the chance to see words he/she may have missed.
Players can adjust many of the game settings: dimensions, time limit, the minimum number of letters a word needs before it is consider valid, etc. Unlike Boggle and many other boggle-like apps, the dimensions of the game board are not restricted to a square: 4x4, 5x5, 6x6. For example, players can adjust the letter grid so it is more rectangular: i.e. 4X6.
*(Please note that this version only finds valid American English words.)
