Dropwords, a unique word puzzle mashup

Dropwords for Android is the digital love child that Scrabble and Boggle never had. In other words, it's a word nerd's dream come true.

Dropwords for Android is the digital love child that Scrabble and Boggle never had. In other words, it is a word nerd's dream come true. To start, you get a five-by-five board of lettered tiles, with each letter being worth a certain number of points, as in Scrabble. Your objective is to use these letters to make words and score as many points as possible within the allotted time. A word can be made up of any number of connected tiles, and can go in any direction, just like in Boggle.

But what makes this game different from Boggle is that after you find a word and score your points, the used tiles disappear, and are replaced by new tiles at the top of the board. What's more, you can actually extend your time by finding high-scoring words and making use of specially marked bonus tiles. These unique features make for a virtually endless supply of potential words, and an incredibly dynamic game every time.

If you're into word games, we think you'll absolutely love Dropwords. It's challenging, fun, and not a game that you'll easily get sick of--we promise. Our only wish is that it had a backspace or clear button. As it is now, undoing mistakes requires an unintuitive series of taps. Regardless, we still put this downloaded game front and center on our Android Home screen, and we highly recommend you do the same.
