Basic word game

Make as many words as possible in this simple puzzle.

Aros Magic Twist is a basic word game that involves making as many words as possible from a given set of letters. The game was harder than we expected--and sometimes frustrating--but we nonetheless found ourselves playing it way longer than we needed to for the purpose of this review.

The program's interface is plain and fairly intuitive. The first time the program is launched, users must select the language that they want the program to use when loading its dictionary. The program then gives users a group of letters and a series of blank spaces representing words of different lengths. Users must then race against the clock to fill in as many words as possible. Because we were only given four letters at a time, a lot of the words that we had to come up with were quite short, and at first we were dubious that some of them were even words. But Aros Magic Twist provides a handy link to Wiktionary.com so that users can look up words they don't know, and sure enough, all the words in the program were legit, if obscure. The online Help file is brief and could definitely use some more instructions on how to play the game, but we were able to figure it out with some trial and error. Overall, Aros Magic Twist isn't the most fun or exciting game we've ever played, but it's not bad for a basic word game.

Aros Magic Twist is free, and it installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this game to all users.
