Super Text Twist
Full user review
"A decent challenge for the mind"
Easy to play; 6 or 6/7 letter word game, timed or untimed. Game can be saved to be continued at a later time.
Mediocre, irritating sound effects (fortunately can be turned off). Strictly single-player only; no provisions for a secondary game by another person. Vocabulary seems limited; words repeat over the course of a single game.
Even with its faults Super Text Twist is still an enjoyable gaming distraction that even provides reasonable challenges to the brain, something a lot of more sophisticated gaming titles can lay claim to. Fairly small footprint to run in XP; I can have STT running alongside iTunes, scanning software and imaging apps when I'm waiting for a CD rip to finish and/or editing album art without any noticeable degradation to app performance. It's easy to learn and play and the save game utility is handy as is the ability to shut off the rather annoying sound effects. Well worth the 10 bucks I paid for my particular download version.
