Word Order review (iPod/iPhone)

February 8, 2012

“But it’s only words
I meant every word”

10 word description: Use refrigerator magnet words to create sentences and solve puzzles.

10 word review: Interesting variation on word puzzles, relies more on general knowledge.

The title at the top is often helpful

You will like this if you enjoy: Puzzles involving a mixture of word arranging and trivia.

If you don't know, you can try several times, but time is always running out

The good news: It’s different enough to stand out among other word-themed puzzle games on iOS. Decent mixture of general knowledge, word-spotting and quick reactions required.

If you know the quote, it's a lot easier than piecing it together a word at a time using guesswork

The bad news: Graphically it’s not particularly awesome. There are only a couple of spot effects for sounds and no music. There’s no single-word undo, just an option to reset all the placed words.

Arcadelife verdict: This is a good effort, taking the “word puzzle” idea and giving it an interesting twist. Some of the puzzle categories are easier if you have decent general knowledge as you will be able to see the correct answer almost immediately, rather than having to move the words around to work the answer out. With a bit of tweaking this will be a very good game, although there’s no reason at the moment for anyone wanting a new word puzzle game not to get it.
